Their fair share?
Obama took to the radio airwaves today to rally support for his unsupported fiscal policies that no one in their right minds wants to see enacted. He does have liberal support for his policies, but like I said, no one in their right mind thinks his ideas are good idea.
Of course, came the obligatory, we want the rich to pay their fair share of taxes.
What is their fair share?
First of all, who the hell is Obama or any other liberal to tell any American what their fair share of taxes are? Obama may have been elected President in one of the worst elections in American history, but no one died and made him king. When has Obama ever held a real job? He's never started a business or created jobs. His wealth comes from his books. Speaking of which, would someone please tell me why an unknown instructor and community activist gets a book deal with a hefty advance? No one has ever explained this. Why him? Most authors will do anything to just get into see an editor or agent. How on earth did this unknown get such a lucrative deal?
Speaking of fair, half the people in America pay no income tax. The top 1% pay pay 21.5% of the income taxes. In the insane world of Barack Obama and the mentally disturbed liberal minds, perhaps that is fair. Most of the rest of us call that insanity.
In the 1950's, the top rate was 91%! Under John Kennedy who actively supported tax cuts, the rate was dropped to 70% and the economy boomed. Under Reagan, it was cut to 35%. The economy boomed. Even the anemic Bush tax cuts stimulated the economy.
But when the government admits that hundreds of billions of dollars are wasted, who says anyone should pay any more? When the government is such a poor steward of the people's monies, who the hell is someone like Barack Obama to sit there and lecture Americans that some of them should be paying more just to meet his nutty standard of fairness.
There is a dirty secret with the tax code that the liberals will not admit. It taxes income, not wealth. A wealthy liberal like Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton, who did nothing to create his wealth, other than being a member of the lucky sperm club, is protected. The guy who works hard, creates a new business and tries to live the American dream is punished because more of his income is taken away, making it harder for him or her to become wealthy.
If Barack Obama thinks the rich need to pay more, let's start with him. Let's take his millions. Then let's go to George Soros and some of these other liberals who are demanding we tax more.
Another secret is the Federal Government will gladly take your money. No, I'm not talking about through the IRS. If you want to be generous and give the government more money to waste, er I mean spend, you can just send it to the US Treasury. They will gladly accept it.
Amazingly enough, neither Barack Obama, Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi, or for that matter any of the liberals demanding other Americans depart with their hard earned money, have contributed one cent to the Federal Government.
When they start contributing, then they can talk about someone's fair share of taxes.
Until then, they need to shut up.
a major incentive
Charlotte, once again spot on.
Why should an incompetent government ever want to be efficient? That is job security to be inefficient, to allow more people to work who have no work to do. This is how Aerospace works. The more inefficient and wasteful they are, the higher the profit. We had 10 people doing the work of 1. Why not? Lets say I propose 10 people to do 1 forty hour a week job. I proposed 10 people at $400 an hour (included o/h). The government will pay $8,320,000 for 10 individuals, 1 working at the bottom salary and nine others watching, supervising, so called managing, reading books, going golfing and movies on company time. etc. In Aerospace, they get 15% profit on $8,320,000, or $1,248,000 in profit for 2000 hours charged, not worked. If I proposed one person to do this same job, then I get $832,000 in expenses, 15% profit $124,800 in one year. Which benefits more Aerospace? This is how this game works. After all, the government is happy because there are 10 people to pay taxes, where only 1 should pay taxes. More tax dollars to the government, more to spend and waste. The only people who get screwed are the actual Taxpayers, since there money is being WASTED on people who dont work. Now take this example and apply this to all the subcontractors working for this prime contractor. The more they overspend, the more they make, same with the prime contractor. So the subcontractor makes a killing, same with the prime contractor. You and I get screwed, less tax revenue to the Government. So the answer is to the raise taxes from progressives, not go after and solve Waste, Fraud and Abuse, ignore this.
This is our government today, wasteful, fraudulent, abusive, unaccountable, inefficient and most of all has no consequences for their actions. So why do we have at 14.5T debt and more to come? Here is a prime example, how they waste and NO ONE CARES, from the President, Congress, DOD-IG, State and local governments, Unions on down. NO ONE CARES. NO ONE WANTS TO GET INVOLVED TO STOP THIS? That is the problem, America is soft, not willing to fight for what is right anymore, to stop an immoral government out of control and has no consequences for waste, fraud and abuse of its citizens.
Again America, close your eyes, problems solved. Grow up and become an adult.
But when a long string of usurpations finally PISS HALF THE COUNTRY OFF!
Because they have committed them to servitude. It is our right.....our duty......To kick there asses the hell out and replace them with a CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT.
As this one is no longer trusted bt THE PEOPLE. We as a nation should cease to acknowledge it as having authority over us and relinquish our consent.
Correct, Absolutely Correct.
Preserve, Protect and Defend the Constitution of The United States of America.
The Constitution is ALL We have to Ourselves.
Doing ALL of the above, by whatever means necessary, IS necessary to ensure the survival of We the People.
By ALL and ANY means, We WILL preserve The Constitution.
Could not agree more. No taxation without representation.
They dont represent We the People, so no more taxes. Lets them in government Rot!
No more they make the mess, we clean it up. Its time for this diaper to be changed.
"It is our right.....our duty......To kick there asses the hell out and replace them with a CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT."
...yes it is... are you armed... lots of ammo... 3 months' supply of food... have you contacted your local militia... figured out what your first move would be... located the local mosque(s)... located the local barrio...
Socialist and Marxist reward the non achiever, state its the rights of non achievers to be taken care of by the achiever. Elections have consequences. America voted for a Socialist narcissistic Marxist con man, raised by parents this way, this is what you get. Once he gains power as a Dictator, this is the direction we go in. Union riots in the streets in 2012 coming soon.
They voted for a man who does not qualify to be President based on the Constitution, conned by the Democratic Party and is a pathological liar. He provided a fraudulent birth certificate and was using someone elses SS number. Not a moral person in Congress cares, will file articles of impeachment. Anyone who votes for him in 2012 needs to pick up a bible and learn the words morals, ethics, principals and values.
Stupid is as Stupid votes.
