TEA Party: "Obama is a Marxist."
Democrats:(Saul Alinsky rule number 5 - ridicule) "Oh, here we go again.'Marxists'. That's rediculous. Everyone knows there is no such thing as a Marxist."
TEA Party: "Obama is a Marxist."
Democrats: "We're going to begin seizing the property of successful people to distribute to people who won't do anything for themselves."
TEA Party: "Obama is a Marxist."
So, what idiot here still believes the Democrats aren't Marxists?
Actually Democrats are more of a Socialist. The Republicans would be more Marxist or Communist. Communist has the Peasant and Elite class. Socialist are more even spread across their economy.
P.S. Heard this today. Great question for you Repubs. Reagan LOWER the tax rate on everyone. However his rate for the top was 50% not the 35% it is now and Capital Gains were 25% not the 15% they are now. SOOOOO was Reagan MORE of a wealth redistribute than Obama?

Critics of Mitt Romney accused him of being a flip-flopper. Now one of his die-hard supporters is guilty of the same charge.

Eric Hartsburg, the 30-year-old resident of Michigan City, Ind., inked the Romney/Ryan campaign’s distinctive “R” logo on his face this fall to support the Republican ticket. Hartsburg put the space on his face up for sale on eBay and was paid $5,000 to get the 5-by-2-inch tattoo. After the Romney-Paul Ryan ticket lost on Nov. 6, Hartsburg had no regrets, telling POLITICO he was “glad to know that I did all that I could” and insisting he would never have the tat removed.

But he’s had a change of heart.

Hartsburg tells POLITICO he plans to get the tattoo lasered off, a process that could take a year.

Tattoo removal chain Dr. TATTOFF offered to remove it for free, an offer Hartsburg originally rejected, telling POLITICO earlier this month,“I still love the ink and I am a man of my word and will keep the tattoo for life.”

But then he heard some of Romney’s post-election comments, most notably his claim that the president won reelection because of “gifts” given to various constituencies.

“It stands not only for a losing campaign but for a sore loser,” Hartsburg said.“He’s pretty shameful as far as I’m concerned, man. There’s no dignity in blaming somebody else for buying votes and paying off people. I can’t get behind that or stay behind that.”

Dave is wrong again, as usual.
"Redlining" is the practice of banks declining mortgages in certain neighborhoods because of high risk. The practice is not race-specific, although many redlined neighborhoods are predominantly minority.
When the government denies banks the right to deny mortgages in high-risk areas, high default rates will occur.
Dead wrong again, as usual. Repeating the same old rhetoric doesn't make it any more true now than 4+ years ago. Redlining only applies to areas in which the banks already operate, and the CRA didn't mandate lenders to offer loans to unqualified buyers - it mandated that lenders could not discriminate based on geographical location. The CRA loans were actually subject to higher scrutiny and oversight than loans outside the redline areas, so held a greater solvency than the rest of the subprime market. The housing crisis wasn't caused by ghettos, it was caused by inflated housing prices, aggressive lending practices and ignoring the over-extension of personal debt by both the banks and the borrowers.

We won't survive 4 years. Have you counted how much money Obama needs? And, what's the plan to get that money? Right out of Karl Marx's "Das Kapital".
What you have to do is condition the percentage of the population that won't be included in the 10 percent that lives above the masses in every Marxist communist system that has ever existed to accept the humanly unnatural Marxist existence.
Then, you have to condition the percentage of the population that believes in the Constitution and the American way of life to voluntarily give that up.
Obama will need that 750 million rounds of ammunition he procured for the FBI, BATF and DHS to do that.
That was the plan all along.
Obama wants a war with the American people, and he procured 750 million rounds of ammunition for this purpose.
We won't last another 4 years if the Democrats get what they want.
Paul Ryan should be the next Speaker of the House. That's our only chance to survive the Democrats rebellion against the Constitution.
Thanks for the humor this morning. Your 750,000 rounds of ammunition had coffee spurting out my nose.

Paul Ryan, your hero. The big spender. The Big Government Paul Ryan.

You do know he has a voting record in Congress right? Read it sometime.

Two words: Wealth tax.

The government now wants to tax a percentage of the wealthiest's total assests.

Couldn't that be considered:
Seizure of private property?
A bureaucratic nightmare?
All of the above?

It's in the making regardless.

Nope. Chris Christi sabotaged the election. Without Chris Christi sabotaging the election, Romney wins. That 5 point swing you observed in the last week of the election was the result of Christi's sabotage. Without Christi sabotaging the election, Romney wins. Even with Christi's sabotage and the 5 point swing, the vote was 50 - 50.
Now, how about we talk about the hippy popedream government the Democrats created that there is no possible way to pay for.
And, let's talk about the latest proposal from the Democrats to generate revenue that is right out of Karl Marx's "Das Kapital".
Yup, it's rediculous to call Obama a Marxist, isn't it?
I've been saying he was a Marxist communist since the day after Super Tuesday in 2008.
Looks like I'm being proved right... again.
So, according to you, if Chris Christie lied about the help he was getting or if he refused the federal help & allowed his people to suffer, Romney would have won?

All that would happen is to provide more proof how the Republicans politicize a crisis in order to try to gain votes. Obama would cite the aid given pr cite how Christie refused help to cost Republicans even more votes by proving just how pathetic they were.

Christie did the right thing. Show that politics really don't matter. People like that. But they way the Republicans had a fit cost them votes. If they would have backed Christie, they would have gained votes.

I love the post.
Sometimes I 'role' up the Sunday edition put it back in the plastic bag then fuque the shit out of myself with it.
Never read it though.
wow, you're way ahead of most Democrats who only dream of Obama's plans for going "Greek."

and the fact that something is written in the NY Post that describes what even Geithner has called unfunded future entitlements, in your lib world of media bias towards Democrats, means it is not true.

Everyone needs to read something funny in the morning. Here's the solution to the government's revenue problem.
Those evil rich people can pay for Obama’s annual 3.7T in spending. Obama just needs to confiscate the total net worth of all billionaires ($1.3T), all income above $250,000 ($1.4T) and all 2010 Fortune 500 profits ($391B). Obama gets his remaining $600B by: 1) Taking the net worth of t...he next 100 near billionaires 2) Collecting an amount equal to the total ad expenditure of the 45 Super Bowls, all pro sports salaries & all “Star Wars” revenue (inc. merchandise) since 1977 3) Eliminating all funding for Afghanistan, Iraq and foreign aid & 4) Seizing and selling the 15,000 homes in Beverly Hills. Still $12.5B short. Every remaining man, woman and child pays 40 bucks for the Obama Tax.
Yup, this would be funny... if it were happening in some other goddam country we hate.
Sometimes you just gotta laugh at yourself when you do something stupid.:-)
We elected a government that built a government there is no way possible to pay for. The Democrats' plan is a hippy pipedream from an opium den in the darkest corner of the Black Hole of Calcutta.
And, Pelosi says the Democrats will talk about cutting government spending after an agreement is reached on their unquestionably Marxist proposal to begin seizing private property from successful people.
... yeah. Like anyone but an idiot believes that.
This is the dumbest post ever.

OMG if we can't pay for the entire cost of government, we should not do anything.

Evidently, you GD idiots think defunding GD Planned Parenthood pays for all our GD government?

Or Maybe I should not pay my GD Taxes because they don't fund all of the GD government.

As for government growing government, ask your buddy Paul Ryan. Paul Ryan voted for massive unfunded growth in government under your buddy GW Bush.

You people are just a GD pack of GD idiots.

Getting public support for his plan is not campaigning. You people are just pathetic. Bush did the same thing. At times he sent out cabinet members, the VP,etc to different cities all at the same time to garner public support.

You morons just hate it because he paints you right whiners as pathetic losers who would hand money to the wealthy by taking it from the elderly & poor.
