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.”

HDR 196: Cronyism, Corruption and Scandal – Welcome To The Obama White House

ALOHA, ALL!!!  I know we were all waiting with baited breath for Barry to announce his jobs plan and how we’re going to pay for it.  He already introduced his “Buffet Tax” on millionaires – how will this bring down our deficit?  It’s just more class warfare and pandering to his base.  It more appropriately should be called a “Re-Election Tax” since Barry is hoping this “rich people are bad” approach will mobilize the masses to vote for him in 2012.  Reaction to Obama’s plan has been swift:  Ryan: Still Waiting for Credible Plan from President Obama | Committee On The Budget  However, the GOP better get out in front of this ridiculous “plan” and frame the message…otherwise Barry and his minions will effectively use their obstructionist argument against them in 2012.  It could enable Barry to win the election….But this White House has a sword of Damocles hanging over its head that’s ready to fall at any time – corruption.

Solyndra:  Was Solyndra an Impeachable Offense? | Expose Obama

Fast and Furious:  Rep. Issa: Operation Fast & Furious Went To The White House | RealClearPolitics  Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Rep. Darrell Issa (R-California) says it is now very apparent, if it was not before, that the White House was deeply connected in the “Fast & Furious” mission where guns were trafficked across the US-Mexico border.

LightSquared:  Bombshell: General accused WH of pressuring him to change testimony for Democratic donor « Hot Air  With the White House already reeling over the Solyndra collapse, a new scandal may have erupted today that could make the disappearance of $535 million in taxpayer funds look like a paperwork glitch. …an accusation made to members of Congress from a four-star Air Force general that claimed the White House pressured him to change his testimony to boost a big donor to the Democratic Party.

Department of Justice:  The American Spectator : Deep Corruption at the Obama Justice Department  Start rattling the chains. Start ratcheting up the hue and cry. Fire up the masses. It’s long past time to force mass resignations at, and possible prosecutions of members of, the Obama Justice Department — and, more broadly, of the West Wing itself.

Tell-All Book:  Obama’s White House is a ‘hostile environment where women are treated like meat’ | Mail Online  “According to the Post, former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn says in the book: ‘This place would be in court for a hostile workplace because it actually fit all of the classic legal requirements for a genuinely hostile workplace to women.’  The book’s writer, Ron Suskind, is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who interviewed over 200 people.  It describes a “divided and dysfunctional” White House where ” no grown-ups are in charge.”  Sounds about right.

And This Little Detail:  Isn’t It Unconstitutional For Obama’s Stimulus Sequel To Be Introduced In The Senate? – Common American Journal  “On Tuesday of this week Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid introduced the President’s much-hyped stimulus sequel, officially known as the American Jobs Act of 2011.  Now, whether you’re for the bill or against it, isn’t it illegal for a bill like this to be introduced first in the Senate?”  (Sidenote:  “American Jobs Act” isn’t even the correct name – it has no name since no Congressman sponsored it in the House.  See HDR 195.  But when it comes to Barry and his crew, it’s obvious that rules don’t matter.)

Joke Time:  An Illegal Alien, a Muslim and a Communist go into a bar. The bartender asks: “What can I get you, Mr. President?”  (Thanks to Carl for the comedic breather.)

Final Thought:  “It has often been said that power corrupts. But it is perhaps equally important to realize that weakness, too, corrupts. Power corrupts the few, while weakness corrupts the many. Hatred, malice, rudeness, intolerance, and suspicion are the faults of weakness. The resentment of the weak does not spring from any injustice done to them but from their sense of inadequacy and impotence. We cannot win the weak by sharing our wealth with them. They feel our generosity as oppression.” – Eric Hoffer
