Income Inequality!

Before you read the article, I would like to send a personal message to President Obama:  Since you spent $600,000,000 on a “shaky” computer system ( that still is not 100%)! And after spending a lot more to fix it, Do You realize you could have sent every American more than $2,000,000?  Each of us could have bought a lifetime worth of insurance, and still had a few million per family for other things! Now, I have a proposal!  Before you continue to ruin the US economy, please send me $1,000,000 tax free! With that stake, in less than a year, I will have 1,000,000 people Paying It Forward, teaching others how to earn a good, solid income with plenty left over, as long as they willingly do the the few simple things necessary, and spend the time (2 to 4 hours a day).  This could be the end of welfare!  Teenagers, the few unable to work a computer and those too lazy to work at this simple system will have to be the waiters and waitresses, the trash collectors and construction workers.  The only people the government will have to help are the injured veterans and others with a real disability.  Of course, with most people having more than enough money, the taxes collected would be more than enough to take care of the truly disabled! Then we will see what “equality of opportunity” really means.  Your message is “equality of outcome!”  That can never be achieved!  However, there is no reason everyone cannot have the opportunity to earn enough!
Just wait until JZ finds out his pal, BO, is going to take his money away!

Alas, this week we’ve found the theme upon which President Obama and the progressive socialist Left will now stake their claim: equality.

These astute individuals truly believe it is their destiny to make us all equal — as they define it. Listen to the constant rants from the president and the leftist acolytes about “income inequality.” With the full power of the government, either by force or coercion (or both), they shall rectify this inequality and make us all equal. How exactly is that done, and the larger question is, to whom?

Shall we turn to Lebron James and tell him he doesn’t deserve any more in income or compensation, than the 12th listed person on the Heat roster?

Shall President Obama and his pay czar decide what the base level compensation must be across the NBA?

Will the Obama administration turn to Roger Goodell, Commissioner of the NFL, and instruct him on team salary caps?

Or shall President Obama, known for his baseball pitching prowess, tell the New York Yankees they must rescind the seven year $155 million contract to Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka — after all the comptroller of NYC believes in “shared prosperity for all over individual success.”

I’m waiting for President Obama to say during his State of the Union address that income inequality is so vital and important as issue that he will issue an executive order that caps the compensation for Hollywood actors and actresses. After all, why do they need all that income?

As well, entertainers such as his dear friends Jay Z and Beyonce must see a cut in their income and their concerts must be made more affordable to all Americans.

Now, do you REALLY believe that’s what President Obama and the Left mean when they talk about income inequality? Nope. They’re talking about those Americans whom the President referred to when he said, “You didn’t build that.” Because you didn’t, you don’t deserve the fruits of your hard-earned labor, investments, and sacrifices.

You see, we don’t need uniform standards in our military or even physical standards, because everyone is equal and should be allowed to “play.” One man and one woman shouldn’t define marriage. What difference do the last few thousand years of history make?

All of this sounds good, or as we used to say in the military, “briefs well,” but just tell me how has it indeed worked out through history when a government, socialist in nature, has tried to force social egalitarianism — under the guise of equality?

America is great because it is based upon an exceptional ideal of equality of opportunity. Progressive socialists embrace the failed concept of equality of outcomes.

I am 5’9″ and cannot dunk a basketball, but I don’t envy Lebron James for his talents and ability to do so, nor his compensation for it. I found my niche and ability in life as a Soldier and was thankful for my opportunity to serve and the compensation afforded (allow the government has reduced my earned retirement benefits).

Celebration of diversity is not about elevating other cultures above America. It is the celebration of our supreme regard for the diversity of our talents that has placed America above all other cultures and nations.

Let us never forget Thomas Jefferson’s words that “our unalienable rights, from the Creator, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” And a government that believes it’s big enough to try and guarantee happiness is also powerful enough to take it away — equally.

SEE WHAT YOU DID!?!

asking you

Michelle Obama

To Me
Today at 9:55 AM
I did all I could to stop Barry Obama from becoming president.  However, I like to watch what the other side is doing and saying.  Therefore, I get all of the demonRat letters, as well as watch and read their propagandist news media.  I can see how they blind-side so many otherwise wonderful Americans!  In any event, I recently received the following from Michelle Obama:


“Earlier this month, because of what you did, it became illegal for insurance companies to discriminate against the up to 129 million Americans living with pre-existing conditions. Young Americans are able to stay on their parents’ health care plans as they get on their feet, and we can now know that our insurance companies won’t put lifetime caps on our coverage.

“You should be so proud of that. That happened because you organized, you talked to your friends and neighbors, and you chipped in what you could, when you could, to elect Barack and a Congress who supported his agenda.

“Today, I’m asking you to do it again.

“So before Barack gives his State of the Union address tomorrow, chip in $3 or more and help protect Obamacare:

“Thank you so much,”

Michelle

NOW, FAR BE IT FROM ME TO DISPUTE THE 1ST LADY!  However, here is what else you did:

You let Obama spend $800 billion dollars on a stimulus bill that did not increase employment one bit.  In fact, despite the phony claims of the democRats that they have added 4.3 million jobs, in fact, more than 11,000,000 workers can’t find work since Obama took office.  In fact, 30 per cent (92 million) of America is not working today, that would like that opportunity! “‘Nuff said about unemployment.”

Let’s not forget Bush was a spendthrift (he was very wasteful), but in 8 years, he didn’t come close to the wasteful spending of Barry O in 4 years!  Also, you need to remember, that all spending starts in the House of Representatives.  The biggest budget busting years of the Bush administration took place after the democRats took over both the House and controlled both the House and Senate in January 2007! In any event, Barry Obama is responsible for over $5 trillion in needless debt!

Now that ObamaScare is fully in place (except for the areas Obama un-Constitutionally changed), He has the distinction of being  the greatest tax increasing politician in history!

His greatest accomplishment is the killing of Osama Ben Ladin!  However, even that victory is shaded by his 3 days of vacillation on whether to take the shot or not. Why?

Again, while the Obama administration claims an unemployment rate of less than 7%, the truth is that he stopped counting the 11,000,000 people that have stopped looking for work.  (Bush had 6,000,000 stop looking for work during his 8 years.)

The National median home price has fallen almost $100,000 to $183,000, but that is leveling and starting to go back up (as long as interest rates stay low).

Under Bush, gas prices stayed around $1.80 until the democRats took control of congress in January 2007.  It took them almost two years to get them up to over $4 a gallon (but they had success once Obama was elected). Now, Obama can claim he got gas prices down from a high of $4.09 . to the low to medium $3 range.

Foreclosures have fallen, but there still are too many.

Of course, only the most forgetful fail to recall Obama’s claim that, “…this is the moment when the oceans cease to rise and the planet will heal!”  Of course, neither happened! Also, terrorism is more dangerous today than it was when Obama took office.  We have had more terrorism in the USA  under Obama, since 9-11 (although not that many killed in any one incident)!  We have had more Americans die around the world by terrorism since Obama has been president! (One was an ambassador in Behghazi, Lybia).

More people on Food Stamps than ever!  More below the poverty level since LBJ started his war on poverty! The Department of Commerce indicates for every billion of goods we import American’s lose 20,000 jobs.  We now import $792,000,000,000 or 36,900,000 jobs lost!

I could go on and on, but not to bore you, let’s close out with the thought that Obama seems to be turning the Free Enterprise system of the USA into a communist system.  Don’t forget what Frank Zappa had to say, “Communism doesn’t work, because people like to own stuff.”  Then, back in the 1970’s as China was establishing its early days of Free Enterprise, P. J. O’Rourke said, “You can’t get good Chinese takeout in China, and Cuban cigars are rationed in Cuba. That’s all you need to know about communism.”

Mr Obama, learn from the Chinese! Communism doesn’t work (neither does crony capitalism which Obama seems to like where he can’t establish communism). Crony capitalism was called Fascism during the 1930’s and 1940’s.  So, Mr Obama you leave us a little confused!  You want to demand income equality while your cronies in business have made the gap between workers and owners larger than ever.  You are working hard to establish communism in the USA, but with your billionaire friends you are a Fascist.  Which system do you believe in, if anything?

Ponzi Bernie Madoff is a Piker, compared to the US Government Biggest Con-Job in History!

This is the clearest presentation I have seen in quite some time.

SOCIAL SECURITY CHECKS

I JUST REALIZED THAT WITH REQUIRED AUTO DEPOSIT, I NEVER GET TO SEE THE CHECK.

ALERT EVERYONE YOU KNOW.  THIS AFFECTS ALL OF US.*

SOCIAL SECURITY becomes FEDERAL BENEFIT CHECK

Have you noticed, the Social Security check is now referred to as a “Federal Benefit Payment”?

I’ll be part of the one percent to forward this.  I am forwarding it because it touches a nerve in me, and I hope it will in you.

Please keep passing it on until everyone in our country has read it.

 The government is now referring to our Social Security checks as a Federal Benefit Payment.

 This isn’t a benefit.  It is earned income!  Not only did we all contribute to Social Security, but our employers did too. It totaled 15% of our income before taxes.

If you averaged $30K per year over your working life, that’s close to $180,000 invested in Social Security.

If you calculate the future value of your monthly investment in social security ($375/month, including both yours and your

employers contributions) at a meager 1% interest rate compounded monthly, after 40 years of working you’d have more than $1.3+ million dollars saved!

This is your personal investment.  Upon retirement, if you took out only 3% per year, you’d receive $39,318 per year, or $3,277 per month

That’s almost three times more than today’s average Social Security benefit of $1,230 per month, according to the Social Security Administration

(Google it – it’s a fact).

And your retirement fund would last more than 33 years (until you’re 98 if you retire at age 65)!  I can only imagine how much better most average-income people could live in retirement if our government had just invested our money in low-risk interest-earning accounts.

 Instead, the folks in Washington pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madoff ever did.

 They took our money and used it elsewhere.

 They forgot (knew) that it was OUR money they were taking.

 They didn’t have a referendum to ask us if we wanted to lend the money to them.

 And they didn’t pay interest on the debt they assumed.And recently, they’ve told us that the money won’t support us for very much longer.

 But is it our fault they misused our investments?

 And now, to add insult to injury, they’re calling it a benefit, as if we never worked to earn every penny of it.

 Just because they borrowed the money, doesn’t mean that our investments were a charity!

 Let’s take a stand.

 We have earned our right to Social Security and Medicare.

 Demand that our legislators bring some sense into our government.

 Find a way to keep Social Security and Medicare going, for the sake of that 92% of our population who need it.

 *Then call it what it is: Our Earned Retirement Income.*

99% of people won’t forward this.  Will you?

Adding insult to injury, keep in mind, Barack and Michelle Obama (I have to include Michelle, because the company that got the $600,000,000 contract had her college friend as a major officer of the company), just wasted $600,000,000 on a computer system that didn’t work.  It still seems to have problems, but they tell us that it is “fixed.”  How many additional millions did they give their incompetent friends to “fix” the system?

If they gave each citizen $2,000,000 it would have been cheaper!  We could all have afforded our own health insurance!  After each of us paid for our own life time health insurance, we would all have a lot of money left over for college, starting a business, emergencies and or anything else we wanted to do!  Either way, the American public has to pay for another $600,000,000 in wasted funds with little or no benefit—it seems like additional theft after stealing our Social Security premiums.

“He’s having a blast.”

And clearly, Mooch is NOT. Even with all the dolling up she’s had done in the past few years, she reverts to that Bulldog- Aunt Esther look when she’s pissed at Barry. He acts like a 5-year-old, she like his angry mommy.

Dear Lord, it was a funeral service. I went to more than a few as a kid and the old man would have kicked my ass had I behaved without solemnity and maturity, and respect.

WHAT ARE THE MEDIA AFRAID OF-OR ARE THEY ALL CO-OPTED?  With the power of DC  (District of Corruption) they could crush me in a second and no damage would be done, because I’m just this little old, veteran with no real support!  However, as the press found strength when AP and one of their own were attacked by Obama, all of the worlds press ran to their assistance!  LOOK GUYS, I know you are afraid of this guy, but come on, at least show the truth!
