Obama plans campaign-style
trip to push higher taxes

Washington Times, by Susan Crabtree

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/29/2012 11:33:14 PM

President Obama is hitting the hustings in a campaign-style push for tax increases, and his first stop is Pennsylvania — a battleground state with the kinds of Republicans who he thinks could be amenable to being swayed by grass-roots pressure. Since his re-election three weeks ago, Mr. Obama has stuck to his campaign message that raising taxes on high earners is the best way to reduce the nation’s soaring deficits and avoid veering off the so-called “fiscal cliff.” He has spent the past two weeks trying to drum up additional public support

In time, revenues will decrease and the left will be clueless as usual. They either don´t understand human nature, or delude themselves to think they can change it.

And the rubes will probably fall for it. Taxing the "rich" will raise about enough additional money to run the government for a day or so, do nothing to improve the deficit and peter out as the "rich" figure out ways around it.

Eventually, one must hope, that even all the gullible Obamaphiles will snap and ask why this yahoo is still in campaign mode when the country is going to hell in a handcart.

Obama and the Senate are a bunch of fools. Raising taxes when the nation is in a recession only aggravates the recession.

Four more years of this idiot.

Tax wealth, not income...and confiscate the houses of anyone who voted for Obama with more than two bedrooms.

Top down, bottom up, inside out. Ever the community activist.

He tells them what is good for them; they then demand it of their representatives in Congress as though it was their idea.

Alinsky. And more recently, Van Jones. Glenn Beck talked about it.

Here is Van Jones´s 10 point Marxist manifesto that sounds like communism - and Obie´s campaign (and continuing) talking points. See if you don´t agree:

Re the Van Jones 10-point manifesto, here is #8 - on taxes:

VII. Return to Fairer Tax Rates – End, once and for all, the Bush-era tax giveaways for the rich, which the rest of us — or our kids — must pay eventually. Outlaw corporate tax havens and tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas. And with millionaires and billionaires taking a growing share of our country’s wealth, let’s add new tax brackets for those making more than $1 million annually.

Sound familiar? The rest of the 10 points are similarly familiar.

Zippy should have asked David Walker to have lunch with him and Mitt.

Less and less citizens are working and paying taxes. He will never collect enough money from the wealthy to cover everyone. It is a losing battle.

Maybe he invited Mitt to let him know how much more he will pay in taxes to cover his peeps.

What burns my butt is him flying all over Hell´s half acre on AF-1 which costs $182,000/hour for fuel. We may not be in such a hole if he hadn´t been campaigning around the country on our dime for the last four years. I thought he was elected to run the country. I didn´t vote for him and I certainly didn´t vote for ValJar who prolly is running the country in his absence. And now I hear the Obamas will spend 20 days in Hawaii at Christmas to the tune of $4 million. Geez Louise!

It is astounding to me that people have not taken notice of what is going on in the UK and France. Both current leaders raised taxes so high on the wealthy (90% in France), the wealthy are fleeing in droves with their money, their capital, liquidating their assets and taking their skill, talent and experience with them. The US is on the same path.

Take a look at CA as a portent for the entire country. CA is so highly taxed and so poorly managed/governed (worst in the US), that the wealthiest are leaving and moving to business friendly states like TX and FL.

Also, if you live or do business in CA, much of NY and parts of the NE, $250,000 for a family of say four or five does not go very far. Worse, if you are a high volume, but low return retailer, the BO taxes are going to wipe you out. BO´s revival of the estate tax is wiping out family farms nationally and the massive property tax hike in CA will render real property impossible to sell or buy.

So all you idiot BO voters when you gas is $5.00, like mine, you have no job or insurance or a low paying job...you voted for it so you own it.

From an article yesterday: "According to the Congressional Budget Office, the top 1 percent of US earners already pay 22.3 percent of all federal income taxes (based on 2009 figures), even though their share of total income earned is just 13.3 percent."

That tax share is almost twice as high as the income share. Stinky says, "More!"

#3: Please clarify: do you think Obama really wants to ease or end the recession? Thanks.

Meanwhile, no one is mentioning that the "cliff" itself is the result of 4 years of Obama´s intentional mismanagement. If he had wanted to avoid it, why did he do everything in his power to bring us here in the first place?

Events may soon bring us to the point where Democrats will be compelled, or feel more emboldened, to admit their true intentions. None of which are good.

Some idiot was on Fox yesterday saying the $700 billion Obama stole for Medicare and gave to Obamacare was a budget cut.The other two people in the conversation couldn´t believe what they were hearing. We´re up against a totally irrational group of people here who are being more adolescent and juvenile every day.

Obama´s so concerned about the state of the country he has a 20 day vacation already lined up and I suppose his puppet masters will visit him with more tips on this country´s destruction.

Republicans should be on every radio and TV show they can accusing Obama of bargaining in bad faith,not offering a single thing of substance in return for raising taxes.

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Democrats settle on fairness

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
