HDR 197: Do You Pay Your “Fair Share”?
ALOHA, ALL!! It sounds like being Warren Buffet’s secretary is a terrible job, right? After all, she pays more taxes than her boss. Even Warren – the so-called “Oracle of Omaha” – says so. So it must be true. But wait a minute – it turns out she doesn’t pay more in taxes: AP fact check: Secretaries don’t pay more taxes than their bosses « Hot Air Do Buffett and Obama really think we’re going to fall for this bunk?? But according to Barry, this isn’t class warfare. Um….so choosing the example of a secretary and multi-billionaire mogul is just a coincidence? Right. Meanwhile, here are some facts from The National Tax Payer’s Union:
A couple of great links from The Heritage Foundation: $1.5 Trillion in New Taxes and Heritage Responds to Obama’s Debt Reduction and Tax Proposal
Think it’s Only the “Millionaires” Who Will Pay More? New government fees pepper Obama deficit plan – Common American Journal “Air travelers, federal workers, military retirees, wealthier Medicare beneficiaries and people taking out new mortgages are among those who would pay more than $130 billion in government revenues raised through new or increased fees.”
Check out this SEIU puke calling for the need to create a crisis (thanks to Sue for the link):
This is classic Saul Alinsky & Cloward & Piven stuff. BTW, how many times have you been arrested? This guy talks about how he was really scared the first time he was. Yet Tea Party folks are extremists??????
And Even Levi’s Calls for Unrest. Did you hear about the ad pulled from TV in the UK? Here it is:
You’d think the folks at Levi’s would try to distance themselves from the rioting message, but quite the contrary: ” Robert Hanson, global president of the Levi’s brand, told Reuters as recently as July that the company couldn’t help but see a correlation between unrest by young people across the globe and its “Go Forth” campaign.” Brilliant – no more Levi’s for me!
Corruption Continued. White House offered “guidance” to second witness in LightSquared inquiry “A second witness, a head of a federal agency, says the White House also offered him “guidance” by asking him to insert a paragraph expressing confidence in LightSquared’s efforts.” Then there’s this: Surprise: Solyndra execs to take the Fifth at congressional hearings next week – Common American Journal and this: Issa Wants Special Prosecutor To Investigate “Fast and Furious” Scandal… – Common American Journal
And It Gets More Interesting. LightSquared | Darrell Issa | House Oversight Investigation | The Daily Caller “Citing concerns over alleged White House influence in dispersing loans, California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa announced that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee would begin an investigation into the wireless startup LightSquared. On C-SPAN’s Washington Journal Tuesday morning, Issa, who chairs the Oversight Committee, named LightSquared along with the embattled solar energy company Solyndra as examples of “crony capitalism.” “I want to see when the president and his cronies are picking winners and losers,” he explained, “that it wasn’t because there were large contributions given to them.” DARRELL ISSA = MY NEW HERO!!
And One More Video – I HAD to post this one! Regardless of what you think of Rick Perry, this is powerful! And it’s the way to beat 0bama…using his own words. BTW, you’ve likely noticed I’ve been using zeros for the “O” in Barry’s name for quite some time. I’m glad to see that Perry agrees he’s “President Zero.”

GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN 2012!!
Great posts! The truth will make us free.
Let’s hope so, Martha!
Barry is in so far over his head he doesn’t know which way is up. I can’t dislike the man as much as he deserves because that would be sort of like loathing Trig Palin for his handicaps. Barry is a a duded-up dope with a huge sense of entitlement. Pathological narcissist as well? Probably so. He and Charlie Sheen should get a room!
Watching the yahoo (Stephen Lerner) from SEIU (link above), it’s increasingly clear Barry is the decerebrate puppet of the far left who hope to collapse the economy so they wind up with the shotguns and finally achieve their goals to impoverish the nation as they step into the nomenklatura to which they feel deeply entitled.
Russia went thru this in the wake of World War I and millions wound up being slaughtered by Lenin, Stalin and their ilk as that nation become pathetically poor — finally collapsing two decades ago.
Cloward and Piven would be proud of this jerk. The question is will Barry shamelessly push African-Americans to the ramparts on the slogan that his failures are the result of white racism? Yeah, you can expect this from our “post-race” president. His handlers want the nation to collapse — and they may succeed. Barry just wants his ego intact… and another four years of rides on AF#1.
Can you imagine if a tea party speaker said any of the half-dozen incitements that Stephen Lerner does (under the banner of an actual organization (SEIU) — to which our Marxist president shows fealty)? Yet the tea party is attacked because its organization is little more a persuasive and threatening (to the left) compact of ideas — namely “responsible, efficient and effective government that’s as small as possible.”
Call it the Tea Party Compact.
Socialism is a muffled form of communism. In a communist state EVERY dollar is funneled through the government coffers EVERY time it moves. You can’t pay enough to satisfy ‘President Pepsi.’
David, isn’t it interesting how when these liberal/progressive pundits and politicians are asked “how much of every dollar should the government take?” they have no response. They just continue to spin and lie.
