It is now common knowledge that General Electric pays either nothing or very little in federal income tax on the profits it makes. It is also common knowledge that Jeffrey Immelt, the CEO of GE, is on the President’s job council and regularly advices the president on business. Crony capitalism is alive and well in the Obama administration.
Not long ago another billionaire businessman snuggled up to the crony in chief, Mark Zuckerburg was seen meeting with the President on numerous events. Today I came across an interesting story:
Even though Facebook (FB) reported $1.1 billion in pre-tax profits from U.S. operations in 2012, it will probably pay zero federal and state taxes—and even receive a federal tax refund of about $429 million—according to a Feb. 14 statement from Citizens for Tax Justice. (source)
I guess it pays to make friends with Obama. Of course this takes money away from the Federal budget and causes our deficit to be at record levels, but who cares about deficits when you can count another billionaire as your friend.
If anyone really thinks Obama is for helping the middle class and wants to take from the “evil rich” to spread the wealth around, you are lying to yourself. Look what the President is doing for spring break, playing golf with middle class hero Tigger Woods. Michelle was so happy about it that her and the girls are in Colorado skiing.
President Obama does not care about the middle class. He does not care about the poor. He definitely does not care about the United States of America. All he cares about is himself. President Obama is just another selfish politician that will say what ever you want to hear so that you will cast your vote for him. He does not care if you are struggling to pay your bills, as long as he gets to rub elbows with famous people like Tigger Woods, Beyonce and Mark Zuckerburg.
Today I woke up and had a thought that brought a smile to my face. I will count this thought as the happiest part of the 2012 election cycle. So the thought that I had was that no matter what happens tomorrow, no matter who wins and will be in the President on January 20th is that in 4 years Barack Obama will not be our President.
I know, if Mitt Romney wins then Barry could run again, but I don’t think the Democrats would risk running a looser against the person who bear him. So in 4 years the Democrats would have to run a new candidate and that will show the direction that party plans to go.
If Barack Obama wins, Americans will wait out another 4 years of a bad economy knowing that a new President will take over when he is done. Americans will do all they can to succeed DESPITE the actions of Barack Obama, just like we have tried to do the last 4 years. We did all we could to better our lives, even though we knew he would take credit for any thing positive and push blame to someone else for anything negative, because Americans want to succeed.
Where is the outrage and calls for retribution based on blatant racism toward Marc Lamont Hill? When a person publishes a list that signals people out based on skin color, in a negative way, you would think the main stream media would be exposing this blatant example of racism.
Oh, I understand it now. Marc Lamont Hill is a black democrat. The hypocrisy no longer surprises me.
I will let a great American state this much better than I could:
Sometimes I come across a comment on WordPress that makes me want to weep for the future of America. Today I came across a post where the author said:
“that our President who has done everything in his power to be conciliatory and has been by all accounts a moderate” (source)
This level of ignorance makes me fear that it is too late for America. When the most left leaning president since LBJ is considered a “moderate” I weep. When the most divisive president since Woodrow Wilson is considered “conciliatory” I weep.
If someone creates a political scale that uses Barack Obama as the middle of the scale JFK would look like a right wing radical. That person will never be able to have an honest discussion on politics, they are too far gone.
In a recent post at “Whatever Works” the blog author wrote:
USA! USA! USA! (ssshhhh, don’t let the secret out)
We don’t trust the Congress. We don’t trust the Executive. And since Bush v. Gore and all the 5-4 decisions since, we no longer trust the Supreme Court.
However, by all measures, Americans have a high level of trust in the U.S. military. Admiration too.
Don’t tell the flag wavers that the United States Military is an entirely Socialist enterprise. It would spoil their fun.
Figuring that my response would be censored I wanted to post it here to fight the lies:
saying that “the United States Military is an entirely Socialist enterprise” is a completely ignorant statement that shows you have no understanding of what Socialism is. If I am wrong, please give a definition of socialism and then show how the US military fits that definition.
Are you up for the challenge?
I hope that the author really is ignorant, because it would be scary if someone would knowingly propagate such lies.
This goes along with my last post and it is so disturbing that because it is true NO ONE WILL LISTEN.
Here we have the current Attorney General of the United States saying in a video from 1995, when he was Attorney General of Washington DC, telling us how he wants to go about “brainwashing” children.
How does he suggest the government “brainwash” American children?
The school system – everyday at every level (be repetitive)
Commercials – ad agencies
Community leaders like Jessie Jackson – community organizers
catchy hotlines (ie DARE, or “Just Say No”)
I’m sure Elle Macpherson would jump at the chance to help disarm Americans so it is easier for the socialists to take over.
If you are considering voting for Barrack Obama on November 2012, ask yourself this question… Do you trust him? Do you really think he has your best interests in mind when he puts people like Anita Dunn and Eric Holder in front of your children?
“Barack Obama’s politics meant nothing to Samuel L. Jackson because the “Pulp Fiction” star only voted for the president for one reason and one reason only … because he’s black.
In an interview with Ebony magazine, Jackson explained, “I voted for Barack because he was black. ‘Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them … That’s American politics, pure and simple. [Obama's] message didn’t mean [bleep] to me.”
Jackson then went on to drop the N-word several times when discussing Obama, telling the mag, “When it comes down to it, they wouldn’t have elected a [bleep]. Because, what’s a [bleep]? A [bleep] is scary. Obama ain’t scary at all. [Bleeps] don’t have beers at the White House. [Bleeps] don’t let some white dude, while you in the middle of a speech, call [him] a liar. A [bleep] would have stopped the meeting right there and said, ‘Who the [bleep] said that?’ I hope Obama gets scary in the next four years, ‘cuz he ain’t gotta worry about getting re-elected.”
Smacks of … Obama needs to Black it up.”
So, will the MSM give this story more then a passing comment?
On a side note, does it scare you that someone got elected based on race alone? I spoke to several people after the election in 2008 that told me that they voted for Obama based on wanting to be a part of history by electing the first “black” President. Mr Jackson is not a isolated case of racism in voting and I am scared that his racism will be the driving force behind a re-election of a President based only on his skin color.
On January 18, 2012 the voice of the people was heard all over the internet and what they said was “get the government out of the internet!”. Congress was looking to expand its power over the internet and proposed to use two pieces of legislation called SOPA and PIPA as a way to control and stifle free speech on the internet.
Thanks to the effort of the free market and majority rule the voice of the people was heard. Thousands of internet sites “blacked out” their sites as a form of protest. Internet giants such as WikiPedia and Google made their millions of visitors aware of the mess. Many congressmen turned on the legislation as they saw and heard the out pour of anger against it and the legislation was defeated… or so we thought.
Senate majority leader Harry Reid (Democrat from NV) has stated he is working on a new “cyber security” bill to be brought for a vote in 2013. Harry Reid is hoping that if Barrack Obama is re-elected and the Democrats win majority back in the House he will then be able to pass this legislation without opposition.
So a vote for the Democrats in November will be a vote for internet censorship. You won’t hear this on MSNBC or ABC leading up to the election, so you will have to educate yourself. Democrats in Washington want to censor the internet, will you support them?
Must be getting close to election time, the President is acting more like a conservative. It happens every time we get closer to election time, politicians act more like conservatives because they know we are the American majority.
Here is the action of the President that I am talking about. It has been a conservative idea for a long time that we need to give tax breaks to companies to encourage them to move jobs back to mainland America, what is the President’s “new” idea? “Obama Calls for Tax Breaks to Return Jobs From Abroad“. This story is from the NYT:
WASHINGTON — President Obama said on Wednesday that he would propose tax incentives for companies to bring home manufacturing jobs they had moved overseas, and curtail tax breaks for those that keep relocating jobs abroad.
Does this mean he will finally admit that high corporate taxes are causing American companies to outsource jobs over seas? Of course not. But if he thinks tax incentives will bring jobs back wouldn’t you think the truth would finally dawn on him. I have hope that it will some day.
There is also the story out today from WaPost “Obama to propose combining agencies to shrink federal government“, what? Is he going to admit that the federal government is too bloated and is wasting money by having redundant departments? Probably not, it would go against his ideology and cause his head to explode if he was confronted with so much truth. Honestly, as long as he goes through with these proposals I don’t care what he admits.
The truth is that every politician knows that the majority in America are conservatives and they need to make themselves look as conservative as possible come election time to draw at least the moderates to their side. If the liberals and progressives where the majority we would see more government take over of industries during election seasons, which we never do. You won’t see the president run on the success of Obamacare in October because he knows the majority of Americans don’t want government take over of healthcare.
If the conservative majority just realized we have the power in America still we can get the dirt bags in Washington to do the right things with that power. Send a strong message in November by only voting for those that have either demonstrated consistent conservative voting record or are new politicians that run on conservative values. I don’t care what party they are in, if they fit either of those criteria they will get my vote and they should get yours.
2012 is the year of the Dragon in China, but it is the year of the Conservative in America.
Is it just me or is Vladimir Putin sounding more and more like Barrack Obama, or is it the other way around?
Putin said on Wednesday that “in these circumstances, the ruling party always expects the opposition to behave in a calm manner and not to rock the boat. But these are vain hopes.
“The opposition exists to make sure that the ruling party, the ruling authorities could hold on to the levers of power more strongly and prove to society the correctness of the country’s development course,” he concluded as deputies rose from their seats to applaud. (source)
Recently President Obama started to move forward with his own ideas with out letting congress debate and vote on these new policies.
“The only way we can truly attack our economic challenges is with bold, bipartisan action in Congress,” White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer told The New York Times.
“The president will continue to pressure Congressional Republicans to put country before party and pass the American Jobs Act, but he believes we cannot wait, so he will act where they won’t.” (source)
When will people realize that our leaders are not working for us any longer. We need public servants in Washington, not dictators.
Democrats? Are you nervous that your party leaders sound a lot like the communists in Russia?
