Obama Math: 2 + 2 = Class Warfare

There has been a mind boggling scarcity of good news during the three year reign of Tyrannus Obamus, at least for those of us who believe that the Constitution of the United States means what it says, and that the way to change it is not by presidential fiat or the tortured reasoning of liberal jurists, but by the procedure outlined in Article V of the document itself.  The evisceration performed on our founding charter by the President and the Democrats from 2008 through January 2nd, 2011, and by executive order and regulatory legerdemain in the months since have sent many dissatisfied denizens of Obama Nation rushing to the nearest liquor store or to the local apothecary to stock up on mood elevators, semi-consciousness being one of the finest ways persons of sanity can stay that way during these dark days.

But the worm, as they say, may have turned.  Raffle tickets offered by the campaign giving donors a chance at a dinner with the one-time One have been marked down from $5 dollars to a measly $3 bucks, and the big $10 grand-a-plate fund raising dinner hosted by Warren Buffett at the Four Seasons in Manhattan has fewer takers than autograph buffets with Pete Rose. Pundits like Charles Krauthammer and Dick Morris are openly speculating about a 2012 debacle not suffered by a national leader since General Custer waved his hat at the Little Big Horn and hollered, “Follow me!” and even Joe Biden, the old master gaffing co-chieftain himself, said, “I don’t blame them [the American people] for being mad. We’re in charge.”

But for Obama, whose leftism extends all the way from handedness to ideology, the only possible course correction is “Hard a-port!”

“This is not class warfare, it is math…All I’m saying is that those who have done well, including me, should pay their fair share in taxes…We can’t just cut our way out of this hole… It is only right we ask everyone to pay their fair share…”

Well, saying it’s not class warfare don’t make it so, especially when the guy yakking is a lifelong Marxist who swallowed old Karl’s theory right along with his mama’s milk.  Besides, Obama’s government never ‘asks’, it orders. And fairness?  What’s fair about 53% of us paying 100% of the federal tax bill while 47% get a free ride?  As Frank Salvato writes:

[…] Who decides what constitutes someone’s “fair share”? And for that matter, who defines who is “wealthy” or “middle class” or “working class” or “poor”?

 In reality, determining someone’s “fair share” tax burden should be a simple matter. First one determines a percentage at which any American should be taxed. Then that amount should be adjusted for basic necessities and those who exist below an agreed upon poverty line. Then that percentage should be applied to all Americans…period. This is about as fair as it gets. Ten percent of an income is ten percent of an income, regardless of whether that income is $32,000, $150,000, $500,000 or $1,000,000,000. This approach is known as the Flat Tax approach, which would completely replace the tax system as we know it. Undeniably, it treats everyone equally. It is blind to success or failure, race, gender, religion and political affiliation, among other things. (The Idea of the Fair Share – Big Government)

But ‘fair share’ is a meaningless phrase when used by a socialist like Obama, a banal slogan designed to disguise his  true intention, the economic leveling of society–or, in his own words, the “fundamental transformation of America.”  Fortunately for freedom’s future, there doesn’t appear to be as many ‘transformers’ at large in the land as there are in the manic minds of the Marxists.

  1. Here’s my idea of a fair tax, Bob. People can vote their taxes, by that I mean, for every dollar paid in federal income tax, you get one vote.

  2. AFVET says:

    Great post Bob.
    Here’s my take, you don’t pay taxes, you don’t get to vote, period.

  3. Trestin says:

    AFVET, a good plan, but… Everyone pays taxes; sales tax, inflation, hidden corporate taxes passed to the consumer, and the countless other ways they nickle and dime us all. I think a better approach would be, anyone on government assistance should not get to vote.

    • AFVET says:

      AGREED !!!!!
      Well said !

    • cmblake6 says:

      Isn’t that basically what he meant?Yeah, I know. Simplify it so that they can’t twist the concept. MY insta-read was “you don’t pay income tax, you don’t vote”. But then, how do you prove that? This particular government wants it to be “as long as you’re sitting on your butt at home not working, come on down to the voting booth and vote for more goodies”.

    Yessir, a flat tax on anyone over 32,000 of 10% is a plan. Or Herman Cain’s 9/9/9 combination of flat tax and fair tax.

  7. I shudder to think that if there is enough civil unrest, Obama will declare elections suspended in 2012. Maybe I’m being paranoid?

      From Canada Free Press – Knowing The Enemy:

      If there is one description of himself that likely sends Barry Soetoro Obama into spasms of laughter, it’s ‘incompetent’. The Obamas and their hippy czars get an even bigger laugh at the accusation ‘Obama is incompetent‘ than they do from the in-house hilarities watching the infighting among Republican candidates for president and their supporters. The document-challenged 44th ‘President’ of the United States is anything but incompetent. Nor is he stupid. The 44th ‘President’ of the US is a lifetime-trained, cold-as-a-proverbial-fish Marxist ideologue, whose relentless mission no one seems able to stop, is to take down America.

      […] This time, Alex Jones, who fashioned a career on controversial conspiracy theories, got it right when he posted on Drudge a story indicating that the Wall Street protesters are out there actively working on the re-election of Obama. And they’re just not trying to hand Obama re-election in the Big Apple. The protest which started off as a lead balloon has expanded to Denver, Los Angeles, Chicago and about to come on stream in other American cities. Though the Wall Street protesters look like lazy bum hippies, they include the guidance of the rowdy organizers who helped turn Egypt back to the Muslim Brotherhood. And that’s just Barry’s early openers in his today-the-pond-tomorrow-the-world forced march to One World Government.

      No you are not being paranoid. I read somewhere yesterday that this is exactly what the left would like to see happen. They want Obama to declare martial law and then cancel the elections.



      I believe that everything going on today was planned.

  8. bunkerville says:

    My first thinking is these Wall Street jokers may be the start of things going our way. Let the union thugs move it. Let’s have it out now. On the other hand, this is well organized, and we will soon learn whether we are in the majority. We will have an answer soon. Very soon.

    • Bob Mack says:

      Ah, it’s easy to organize airheads and paid protesters. Not so easy to keep ’em organized now that it’s starting to get cold out.

      • bydesign001 says:

        Living in here NYC, I do not care much for the cold or the snow but as long as they are in place, I will pray for a blizzard EVERYDAY!

        The unions love these puppets because they are too easily manipulated and because of the overtime both the NYPD, Dept. of Sanitation among others are going to make a killing.

        In the end, my taxes are going to skyrocket. I despise ever last one of them.

        • Bob Mack says:

          Yep. The Red-led unions, the Congressional Progressive Caucus, & now Obama himself are supporting the useful idiots that “Occupy Wall Street”. Proving that Reds of a feather always stick together.

    Obama the Muslim Mole has come to destroy America as a Constitutional Republic and does NOT like America, contrary to what some think. He is also NOT a “nice” man, Communists usually end up crushing ALL opposition if allowed to continue with their agendas. America has conviently and collectively forgotten that we are great BECAUSE we fought for the Patriarchal Heterosexual Family Unit (PHFU), YAHUAH-given rights of Freedom of Religion, Speech and Assembly, and ultimately, fighting for what Islamofascists call “Zionism,” which simply means that we have protected Jews and their homeland, Israel. But Barack Hussein Obama does NOT like the U.S. Constitution or Jews or Israel, so get ready for the wrath of YAHUAH, since this nation will now be judged for the money (mammon=idol) Whore and Homosexual Fascist state it has become. Thanks for listening, 777denny
