Take It All

According to the Wall Street Journal Obama’s tax plan is based on bullshit and lies not based on the reality of the economy. If the government took every penny made by everyone making more than $200,000.00 they still would not have the money they need for their budget.
They are going to raise taxes on us. Maybe not directly in income tax, but it is still coming. Whoever you are, whatever salary you make, it’s coming. Telling us that he is only going to raise taxes on people making more than $250,000.00 sounds ok to people making $30,000. Go ahead, soak the rich. But if that “rich” businessman has to downsize his business to meet his tax burden, and it’s your $30,000 job he downsizes, exactly whose decision was that?
Taxes are a burden on the economy. Like putting bricks in the bed of a truck. You don’t notice a few, but if you keep tossing them in, sooner or later, your fuel economy goes to hell, the truck won’t accelerate as fast, and you don’t have enough room to carry other things. Keep it up long enough, and the extra burden will break something. We are reaching the breaking point, and trying to collect more taxes with the mistaken idea that the economy can sustain it, well, scroll down and look again at the Hindenburg.

An economy hampered by restrictive tax rates will never produce enough revenue to balance our budget, just as it will never produce enough jobs or enough profits.
–John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Fail Harder, Fail Faster

As a service to all of you, I traveled into the future and brought back a picture of the economy of the United States after the recent changes take hold. Every time a politician speaks about the economy now, the stock market drops 100 points. Given the power of Pr. Obama to effect Hope’nChange, I think the results I brought you are unsurprising.

We can’t expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism.

Comparing the President to a Chimpanzee

Now the NAACP want the editorial cartoonist for the New York Post fired because somehow they have decided that a cartoon referencing a chimpanzee actually is referring to Pr. Obama, and that makes it racist, threatening and generally bad. It looks to me like a big stretch, but hey, they went for it. So, to be courageous, as the Attorney General has asked us to be, let’s talk about this.

For eight years, Pr. Bush has been called Chimpy McHitler. He’s the open subject of websites like BushorChimp, ChimpBushGotHumped, and this from the Huffington Post. Not subtle, not innuendo, an open insult to the President of the United States.

The 1st Amendment, the same one that makes it safe for all us to speak out on political issues, makes this sort of commentary legal. I am in favor of it. For all of us, in all directions. I think no politician should be immune from insult and satire.

I am willing to agree that dissent is the highest form of patriotism. I consider it every patriot’s duty to follow the example of the fine people I have linked to in the previous paragraph. In fact, if we were going to be truly race neutral, the sites I linked to would add new pages, with comparison pictures of all the Presidents.

Why just chimps? I think TeddyRooseveltIsAWalrus.com would be a fun little project. Or LyndonJohnsonIsAHounddog.com. Why just Presidents? Let’s just insult all the politicians by comparing them to animals.

Maybe Bush isn’t the only chimp. There seem to be quite a few in Congress
