Strawman: All I Got For Christmas Was a Tax Increase..........
4 months, 1 week ago
I was busy attempting to, “get over myself”, as was suggested by one of our self-proclaimed liberal contributors, when I thought it would be interesting to Google the phrase; what taxes will go up with the fiscal cliff? The number of related responses: 289,000,000-or roughly the amount of debt that Obama will add during his second term.
With that many responses it’s a cinch that both sides of the issue were well represented, indicating , in some cases, that the extremely rich got off easy thanks to the Republicans, the middle class got hit hardest, we’re not spending enough on education and where’s the money for round two of let’s pick the winners? Summing this up for those of us sitting in the kid’s table; we all got a tax increase. Thank you very much.
I found it interesting that during the key, down to the wire moments of negotiations, our beloved leader, H.C. Obama, took the time to have a press conference. Well, it wasn’t really a press conference—it was more of a pep rally for the green movement, flavored by “Republicans just can’t suck enough” comments. Just more of the same from the left-handed organizer in chief.
Look, there are those of you out there who get this, those of you who don’t (and aren’t reading this blog) and those of you who have to change your drawers every time the anointed one verbally chastises another conservative, featuring that get even with whitey voice that is getting more and more use each day.
But the fact remains; Obama and the left are the heroes of the fiscal cliff debacle. As predicted here, Obama flew back from Hawaii, donned his super suit, voiced a series of half-truths and got his tax increases. Republicans McConnell and Boehner came off looking like two boobs at a county fair and everyone got ice cream and went home. Everyone except you and me.
What America got last week was a full facial of Obama sticking it to EVERYONE, while his friends in the press looked the other way. What we got was a dose of Hillary’s OK now that the Bengahzi thing has blown over, John Kerry’s about to become the next Secretary of State and Al Gore sold his TV network to Al-Jazera. Oh, and Rhino-Governor, Chris Christie was pissed because the House failed to pass a pork sausage bill full of funding for the EPA disguised as relief for Sandy victims bill. Almost forgot about that.
So, riddle me this Batman; now that, just a few days into the New Year, what’s next on the Obama agenda? What was that? Why you think that Obama has only just begun to fight the good fight—that in the days to come he’ll champion new taxes on the upper 2 percent, demonize big oil, pass more laws, more regulations, meddle in our day-to-day lives, EPA new ways to insure higher food prices and tell us how to flush the stool?
Whoops!! That’s already happened. What was that? You don’t remembering that happening? You didn’t see that coming? Maybe it’s because you’re lighting your home with those energy efficient curly-fry bulbs we’re being forced to use. Yeah, that’s it……..
