Barack Obama, our next President

I read it and watched it...and then I wrote about it. Everyone saw the truth of it-do you think those soldiers didn't suffer a lifetime after it as well? Why can't YOU see the truth-from ALL sides-not just YOUR solitary tunnel vision.

The first paychecks of 2013 are going out this week. Many more will be issued next week. Low-information voters who think the big news from New Years’ Day consisted of Obama saving them from tax increases are gaping at their diminished paychecks in stunned disbelief.

They’re not as stunned as they should be – Obama has a lot more direct & indirect taxation aimed at them – but the immediate loss of $$ from their paychecks is a slap of cold water into their data-drained faces.“My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don’t feel comfortable with,” moaned a poster at Democratic Underground. That’s the weak-willed serf’s melancholy rendition of “Give me liberty, or give me death!”

It’s sad to think that for a large group of Americans – enough to form a winning political coalition, as we just saw last Novr – absolutely nothing matters except the number printed under “net pay” on their weekly checks. All this talk of government dependency, unsustainable debt, & even the comical level of corruption in Obama’s “crony capitalism” is abstract to them, a political football game they occasionally watch on TV. They think declaring “all politicians are crooks!” is the height of world-weary sophistication… but the attitude leads them to the decidedly unsophisticated view of major elections as popularity contests.

What are all you folks with smaller paychecks complaining about, anyway? You’ve just re-elected a President who insisted that some Americans needed to “pay just a little bit more.” You didn’t care that his numbers didn’t add up. You didn’t laugh him off the stage when he told you that a trillion dollars of tax increases over ten years would make a real difference to a government that spends a trillion more than it has, every single year.

Well, it turns out that you are among the people who get to “pay just a little bit more.”

Something like 80% of American households will lose more of their income to the government because of the fiscal cliff bill. Why was that confiscation of wealth only acceptable when you thought Obama was talking about other people?

“But I need the money more than those rich guys do!” you wail.“2 percent of my income means more to me than it does to them!” Says who? The increase of 3.6 percent in the top marginal rate for people earning over $450,000 works out to a lot more money than the $1000 or $15000 that middle class workers are giving up, following the conclusion of a temporary 2 percent Social Security tax cut.

The sizable cohort of Americans who don’t pay taxes at all could not care less, because they’re not losing anything… but touch their Food Stamp Nation benefits, and you’ll have a war on your hands.

The political class has claimed the power to decide how much of its property each group of Americans “deserves.” It’s all fun and games until they decide someone else “deserves” your property more than you do, isn’t it?

And this will never cease to be a source of political control over the electorate, because there’s no precise mathematical formula for “fairness.”

One percent of the population pays nearly 40 percent of income taxes, while earning only 17 percent of the nation’s income – but that still isn’t “fair.”

In fact, you middle-class voters have allowed the ruling political party to portray those people as thieves. That process will never end, no matter how far it pushes America into confiscation and ruin. And by focusing upon what it gives and takes, we allow ourselves to be distracted from a proper focus upon what government controls. That’s what really needs to be reduced.

Unsustainable budget deficits are a symptom of that problem.

Are you starting to appreciate how envy-based, welfare-dependent,“progressive ” class warrior nations really work… especially when they approach the point where they stop working?

Closed door hearings mean anything to your stupid azz?
Those CIA and State Department employees may wish to remain anonymous, in any event they don't owe you squat. Are you really stupid enough to not understand why those people were in Benghazi?
They were there doing their jobs with the expectation that they'd be protected. It wasn't as if there hadn't been some warnings, they had asked for help. Those men were left to themselves, they fought hard for their lives, they believed help was coming. I recall when Osama was killed, that was classified too. How long was it before details "leaked" out? How long was it before Obama and Biden were bragging about it?
Don't give me this sanctimonious horseshit about closed door hearings and anonymity, if this had been a feather in Obama's hat instead of a major fcukup, you can be sure someone would have talked by now. Four months have slipped by, the one guy that resigned didn't leave, the prime suspect has been turned loose, Hilary fall down go boom, and nobody knows sh!t.

Greed sucks too..and no one in the right mind would blame the lower end years of working class types, for jumping on the freeride bandwagons. They've been manipulated long enough by the entitleMENTALLY ill "fair and balanced" freerider robbinghoodietic-er for lifer-types.

This country needs an attitude adjustment and it has for four years...cause the freeriders off of everyone elses hard work-are NOT entitled to anything more than what they sit on their asses and complaining about getting for free!

Paul Ryan: gfy
"silly"
You have a problem with representative Ryan because he introduces a bill you do not like? Did he break the law by introducing said bill?
I would bet you have no problem with Biden saying today that the president by executive order was going to ban certain weapons? The hell with the 2nd. amendment. Shit with president nobama in charge we have no need for a legislature. Now it is reported that he is considering raising the debt limit by executive order. Why do we need a senate or house of representatives?
