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 193: What Do Obama and Madoff Have in Common?

ALOHA, ALL!!  What’s a Ponzi scheme?  The liberal press and pundits are choking on their self-righteous saliva about how Rick Perry keeps calling Social Security a Ponzi scheme.  Guess what?  He’s right.  Here’s a basic characteristic os a Ponzi scheme:  A fraudulent investment plan in which the investments of later investors are used to pay earlier investors.  Sure sounds like social security to me – Bernie Madoff would be proud.  How many of you younger than 65 actually think you’ll get what you paid into social security?  If you do, then vote for 0bama in 2012 because you’re about as gullible as you can get.  Perry defended his stance in an editorial in USA Today:    Perry Op-Ed: I’m ‘Honest’ About Social Security

More Ponzi-ness.  Obama the new Ponzi… | The Black Sphere  Kevin Jackson is a Facebook friend of mine. He’s got some great one-liners in this article:  “Obama reminded us that he is the exquisite showman minus the show.” And “Obama is a blind-folded man riding a unicycle on the rim of an active volcano wondering where the heat is coming from.”  You gotta read this one!

This is Your Brain Stuck on Stupid…Perpetually.  Debbie Wasserman Schultz: It’s ‘Baloney’ to Say Stimulus Didn’t Work | CNSnews.com  Thank you, Debbie!  When Nancy Nitwit lost her visible position as Speaker of the House, I wondered who the next nitwit would be.  You are a wealth of material – the gift that keeps on giving!!!!

DUH!  Dems starting to think Obama could lose « Hot Air  “The only question remaining will be whether they will watch as Obama drags down Democrats into massive losses in November 2012, or whether they can convince him to step aside so that they can salvage what they can with a different Democratic nominee at the top of the ticket.”

HDR Readers are very alert!  Several of you wrote to me about Barry’s gaffe during his big jobs speech:    No, Lincoln was not a founder of the Republican Party.  I read that this line was “off-teleprompter” so Barry once again puts his foot in his mouth when he goes rogue and doesn’t read what TOTUS tells him to read.  So much for this brilliant person who thinks there are 57 states and we have “corpse” men in the military.  (As an aside….LOVE the looks on Biden’s & Boehner’s faces in this clip!!)  Several of you also sent me this link:    Blog: PBS alters transcript to hide Obama gaffe  And we contribute tax dollars to this so-called news outlet.

PASS THIS BILL NOW!  Obama Said to Send Congress Jobs Legislation Tomorrow  “Obama is planning an announcement in the White House Rose Garden tomorrow at which he’ll again urge quick passage of the proposal and will send the legislation to lawmakers in the evening…”  The bill went to Congress Monday – Typical Barry tactics:  send it late in the day when everyone is tired.  I’m surprised he didn’t wait until Friday.  Of course, still no insight on how it’s paid for.

A Possible Earthquake in New York?   New York Special Election Could Spell Trouble for Obama – US News and World Report  “If the Republicans do pick up the seat, it could signal that despite Democrats’ efforts to change the national conversation, public confidence in President Obama is continuing to pull the party down.”  This is Weiner’s old seat – A Republican has not held that seat since 1923.

Progress in That State Up North.  Michigan Takes on Welfare Reform  “In the national effort to overcome dependence on government, Michigan has just moved one step forward toward ensuring that welfare promotes self-reliance.  On Tuesday, Governor Rick Snyder (R) signed legislation to place a four-year time limit on cash assistance benefits for welfare recipients.”  (Editor’s Note:  A true Buckeye can never say the name of that state, but refers to it as TSUN.)

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO GLENN BECK?  Glenn Beck TV Launches Today, Already Bigger Than Oprah’s Network  “Glenn Beck launches his much awaited Internet-based program today on his GBTV network and The Wall Street Journal notes that the early subscriber numbers point to a potentially lucrative payout for the former Fox News host.”  UPDATE:  I just saw Beck on O’Reilly’s show – I sure wish Bill would stop stealing my material.  Plus, they were talking about Ponzi schemes!  Geez…..I guess great minds think alike 😉

Finally, At Least One Person on the “Super Committee” Has Some Guts.  Editorial: Gutting Defense Won’t Solve Debt Crisis – Investors.com  “Firing a shot across the committee’s bow was Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., who announced to a conservative group Thursday, “I’m off the committee if we’re going to talk about further defense cuts.”
