And for daring to question the socialist tax policies of Barack Hussein Obama, Joe the plumber is now under scrutiny by Democrat hacks who are rifling through his tax records, his background and his plumbing license status.
Joe's crime? He told Obama, "Your new tax plans are going to tax me more." The "brilliant" Obama's reply? "I don't want to punish your success. I just think that when you spread the wealth around it's good for everybody."
This shows how inept and truly ignorant Obama is on fundamental economics. He's so busy recrafting what words like "tax cut" and "reinvestment" mean that he came up with a new one: Trickle Up economics. And I suppose that means that the poor, the indigent, the homeless, and the underworld drug lords are all going to stimulate the economy once Obama's welfare checks start circulating. Is that about right?
What an ass this clown is.
The enemies of the world can't wait for Obama to win the election. Russian president Vladimir Putin, Fidel Castro, Kofi Annan, Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, North Korean Supreme Ruler Kim jong Il, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and, last but not least - Louis Farrakhan. Did you know that Obama blames Whites for the ruination of Farrakhan's toiletry line ("POWER" line).
|Farrakhan claimed that the POWER line of toiletry products he launched in the 1980s failed to succeed because of pressure from Jews. Obama blamed the failure of Farrakhan's products on whites. In Dreams from My Father, Obama wrote "That the POWER campaign sputtered said something about the difficulty that faced any black business -- the barriers to entry, the lack of finance, the leg up that your competitors possessed after having kept you out of the game for over three hundred years.".|
And as I've saying the last 12 months is that Obama is nothing special. He's a big tax, big spend socialist - with a penchant for Marxism.
The $64,000 question is: Did Obama's remark just cost him the election? I hope so.
And this little tidbit from Pethokoukis' column over at US News and World Report:
|A while back I chatted with a University of Chicago professor who was a frequent lunch companion of Obama's. This professor said that Obama was as close to a full-out Marxist as anyone who has ever run for president of the United States. Now, I tend to quickly dismiss that kind of talk as way over the top. My working assumption is that Obama is firmly within the mainstream of Democratic politics. But if he is as free with that sort of redistributive philosophy in private as he was on the campaign trail this week, I have no doubt that U of C professor really does figure him as a radical. And after last night's debate, a few more Americans might think that way, too. McCain's best line: "Now, of all times in America, we need to cut people's taxes. We need to encourage business, create jobs, not spread the wealth around.".|
Obama's latest foolishness is that he wants to classify carbon dioxide as a pollutant. The dictionary definition of a pollutant is "Something that pollutes, especially a waste material that contaminates air, soil, or water." As any 5th grader knows, the Earth's atmosphere contains roughly (by molar content/volume) 78.08% nitrogen, 20.95% oxygen, 0.93% argon, 0.038% carbon dioxide, trace amounts of other gases, and a variable amount (average around 1%) of water vapor. I don't want to get too technical with you, dear Reader, but this mixture of gases is commonly known as air.
Carbon dioxide is one part carbon (an element) and two parts oxygen. Plants "inhale" CO2 and "exhale" Oxygen. We and most other animals need oxygen to breath. CO2 is an essential part of the process of photosynthesis, by which all life on earth is sustained.
So by definition carbon dioxide CANNOT be a pollutant!
MY GOD! You people need to wake up and start calling your friends and family. Tell them to get out and start stumping for McCain - we cannot afford to have such an incompetent fool like this in charge.
America deserves Better.
