Fairness, Obama-Style

If Charlie Manson ever gets out of jail, he won’t have much trouble landing a job. Thanks to Barack Obama and his left-wing wackos at the EEOC, ol’ Chuck won’t even have to explain the swastika he carved into his head—it just wouldn’t be “fair”:

In the next couple weeks, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is expected to pass guidance that will prevent employers from conducting criminal background and credit checks on employees ….this change would claim authority under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as if it’s discrimination not to want a deadbeat on the payroll or a serial killer at the water cooler. (Beware Lame-Duck Obama)

In Obama Nation, of course, Fairness Obama-style, is paramount.  And everybody must pay for it except the Big Red One:

Obama Fails to Apply the Buffett Rule to Himself

President Obama chose not to subject himself to his own proposed Buffett Rule, paying only a 20.5 percent federal tax rate instead of the 30 percent rate called for under the proposal he has been talking about all week.

But, despite the constant jabbering from the Red King and his garish Queen, there’s nothing “fair” about this:

Americans Making Over $50,000 a Year Paid 93.3 Percent of All Taxes in 2010

According to statistics compiled from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) by the Tax Foundation, those people making above $50,000 had an effective tax rate of 14.1 percent, and carried 93.3 percent of the total tax burden.  In contrast, Americans making less than $50,000 had an effective tax rate of 3.5 percent and their total share of the tax burden was just 6.7 percent.

Americans making more than $250,000 had an effective tax rate of 23.4 percent and their total share of the tax burden was 45.7 percent.

Out of the 143 million tax returns that were filed with the IRS in 2010, 58 million – or 41 percent – of those filers were non-payers.  In other words, only 85 million actually paid taxes. But Tax Foundation data also shows that people who didn’t pay any income tax received $105 billion in refundable tax credits from the IRS.

From each according to his ability; to each according to his need.  Now that’s fairness. That’s Obama. That’s Communism.

    And the Dem/Libbers follow along blindly, bleating their Obama mantra … yes we can … yes we can … Obama gonna save us all … yes we can.

    Ignorant bastards…

  3. The banks won’t have to worry, Bob. They already have their quota of criminals.

    Hummmm… all of this talk i’ve heard lately reminds me of some things I once read…….
    “Equalization of Opportunity Board”….”If they’ll just be patient a little longer, things will improve and prosperity will return”…”I don’t want to destroy the rich, I only want to seize a little of their surplus to help the poor”.

    Oh yeah…it was in a book written by that Russian girl who was raised during the Bolshevik revolution. I think it was something about Atlas.

      I heard about her, BILL. Also reminds me of Kurt Vonnegut’s Harrison Bergeron story:

      The plot is set in the year 2081. Due to the 211th, 212th and 213th Amendments to the Constitution of America, all Americans are mandated equal. “They were not only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way.” In America no one is more intelligent than anyone else, no one is better looking or more athletic than anyone else. In order to stop any sort of competition in society these measures are enforced by the United States Handicapper General. The current Handicapper General, Diana Moon Glampers, and her team of agents have developed several forms of “handicaps.” Beautiful people are forced to wear masks, athletic people have to carry weights, and intelligent people have to wear radios in their ears that interrupt thoughts with loud noises.

    Wow, is all I can say. Any Conservative who is still choking on the thought of voting for Romney should have gotton the cure reading this one. Great find.

    • Bob Mack says:

      Well, at least one state is rehiring a gay porn actor to mold the minds of the young (Stacie Halas, Porn-Star Teacher, May be Emboldened by Case of Former Adult Performer Shawn Loftis):

      [Shawn Loftis] s a Miami-Dade public school substitute who had a past as a gay porn performer. Loftis was fired after his former profession was discovered. Now the Florida Education Commission says he can keep teaching. Not only that, but Loftis can apply to become a fulltime teacher. Before the decision officials said he couldn’t teach for at least five years.

      Justice?

      “I’m proud of my state. I was really shocked that the state of Florida was going to do this. I’m happy.”

      Loftis notes that by the time an administrator discovered he had done porn, it was in his past:

      “This is my past and I left it behind. I can use my experiences in life to teach kids. The key point is that they said when you go back to the classroom and a student brings this up to you, you will be able to handle that. I thought that was highly progressive of them.

      There’s the “P” word again. Funny how you always see it used in connection with things that are immoral, unethical, or unAmerican…

    U.S. Puts Limits On Employee Background Checks To Protect Minorities

    The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s updated policy on criminal background checks is part of an effort to rein in practices that can limit job opportunities for minorities that have higher arrest and conviction rates than whites.

    “The ability of African-Americans and Hispanics to gain employment after prison is one of the paramount civil justice issues of our time,” said Stuart Ishimaru, one of three Democrats on the five-member commission.
