"Bleed the Rich": DUmmies applaud Obama's tax plan
Chairman Obamao went to the Rose Garden the other day to announce his tax plan to pay for his jobs bill that is already paid for. He wants to . . . wait for it . . . raise taxes on the rich! What a surprise! Of course, the cost of those taxes would then be passed along to the rest of us in the form of higher prices, jobs lost, etc. The real problem is the spending, things like . . . his jobs bill.
But we're coming up on election season, and so the Panderer-in-Chief has to appeal to his base. And the best way to do that is to pull out Old Reliable, the Class Warfare Card, the Democrats' mainstay for nigh onto 80 years now. "Bleed the rich!" "Drain them dry!" That's what Democrats love to hear. So that's what Barry is giving them. Of course, his tax-hike proposal has zero chance of making it through the Republlican House. He knows that. This is just a campaign ploy to rouse up the troops and blame the Rethugs.
And it works, at least on most of the DUmmies. They are applauding Obama's tax-the-rich proposal. As we've seen over the years, the DUmmies' visceral hatred of the rich is rivaled only by their hatred of Christianity. "Bleed the rich!"--that's the refrain we'll hear in this THREAD, "President Obama's Tax & Deficit Reduction Plan," and this THREAD, "Obama: This Is Not Class Warfare; It’s Math."
But before we get to the DUmmie comments, let's first sing this musical tribute to Obama's tax plan:
BLEED THE RICH
Tune: "Feed the Birds"
Making his way to the Garden of Rose,
Embattled Obama now comes.
And he goes to the mike with a plan to propose:
"Come, raise the tax on those bums.
"Come, bleed the filthy rich, drain them till dry,
And you'll be glad at their fate.
Their money is handy,
Our debt is so high--
All it takes is uppin' their rate.
"Bleed the rich, uppin' their tax,
Uppin', uppin', uppin' their tax."
"Bleed the rich," that's what he means,
While Underground, their cheers fill the screens.
All around their computers, the DUmp Democratic
Look on as he makes his pitch.
Although you can't see it, you know they're orgasmic
Each time Barry goes at the rich.
As his words are falling like dew,
Listen, listen, he's calling DU:
"Bleed the rich, uppin' their tax,
Uppin', uppin', uppin' their tax."
So now it's on to Obama and the DUmmies, in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, the wag tailoring the doggerel, Charles Henrickson, is in the lower tax [barackets}:
President Obama's Tax & Deficit Reduction Plan
[President Obama's Tax & Spend Plan]
Remarks by the President on Economic Growth and Deficit Reduction
[Remarx by the President on Taxing the Rich to Pay for a Bill That's Already Paid for]
A week ago today, I sent Congress the American Jobs Act. It’s a plan that will lead to new jobs for teachers, for construction workers. . . .
[Translation: It's a payback to the unions.]
Congress should pass this bill knowing that every proposal is fully paid for. . . . And today, I’m releasing a plan that details how to pay for the jobs bill. . . .
["It's already paid for, and so now we need to raise taxes to pay for it." Huuh??]
If we don’t act, the growing debt will eventually crowd out everything else, preventing us from investing in things like education, or sustaining programs like Medicare.
["Invest in" = Spend, spend, spend! on things the federal government has NO constitutional business being involved in, things like education and healthcare.]
for us to solve this problem, everybody, including the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations, have to pay their fair share. . . . it’s only right that we ask everyone to pay their fair share.
[The wealthy already pay WAY WAY MORE than their "fair share." "Fair" would mean that ALL citizens pay the same RATE. And then the rich would still pay much more in taxes than the rest of us.]
new revenues. . . . additional revenues. . . .
["Revenues" = euphemism for the "T" word.]
a plan that asks the most fortunate among us to pay their fair share. . . . this plan asks the wealthiest Americans. . . .
[Mr. Obama, I don't think your tax plan "asks" citizens to pay more in taxes. "Oh, Charlie, I'd like to ask you to pay more in taxes. Would you do that please?" What if I answered, "No, you're already stealing way too much out of my paycheck to pay for your socialist wealth-redistribution schemes. So if you're 'asking,' I'm answering, 'No, I don't think so.'" How would that fly, Mr. President? No, you wouldn't "ask" me anything. You would come to my door with guns and drag me off to prison if I didn't want to pay. So stop with this "asking" BS!]
Nobody wants to punish success in America.
This is not class warfare. It’s math. (Laughter.)
[Why was there laughter? Because everybody KNOWS it IS class warfare. . . . And now on to the DUmmies . . .]
Excellent ! Just F-ing EXCELLENT ! Take it viral. Take it NATIONAL.
[Take THE RICH MAN'S MONEY!]
Obama: This Is Not Class Warfare; It’s Math
[It's class warfare.]
Obama is doing what he needs to do to get elected. . . . That isn't passable and everyone knows it. . . . It's a joke.
[You are not far from a Kewpie Doll, grasshopper. But I'm not ready to give it away THAT fast. There may be a stronger entry later on.]
I finally agree with the administration again. . . . This is the kind of bill the entire progressive caucus has been chomping at the bit for for two years!
[Raising taxes on the rich is long overDUe!]
for once I agree with Obama. Raise taxes on the rich.
[BLEED THE RICH! DRAIN THEM DRY!]
Many DUers have been steadily, and carefully, documenting the relentless subversion of our party's fundamental ideology during Obama's administration--inevitably enduring much hateful and sarcastic vitriol from fellow DUers--particularly from the increasingly pitiable Obama sycophants. . . . Across the globe, the vast hoi polloi is witness to the sordid underbelly of our species' monstrous hedonism, made manifest in the coffers of the uber wealthy (a tiny, exclusive group comprised of greedy wankers of various political stripes). We KNOW that our politicians--almost to a ONE--are sock puppets for the uber wealthy. We RECOGNIZE that those representatives who truly represent US (Bernie Sanders, Sheila Jackson Lee, Dennis Kucinich, Al Franken, to name a few of the VERY few...) fight a sisyphean battle just to be granted a few minutes of media coverage--often to be pundited into the oblivion of ridicule.
["Pitiable Obama sycophants," "sordid underbelly," "greedy wankers," "sisyphean battle"--you may be a raving socialist, DUmmie chervilant, but you do win the Colorful Phraseology of the Day Award. Now be sure to share your prize money equally with the less fortunate DUmmies.]
Really? Cause all I see is a bunch of burnout rage-addicted jerks who need a machine to rage against, without which their lives have no meaning.
[DUmmie Arkana dismisses chervilant's post by, ironically, describing DUmmieland in a NUtshell: "a bunch of burnout rage-addicted jerks who need a machine to rage against, without which their lives have no meaning." DUmmie chervilant responds . . .]
Since our nation has led the hundred-meter-dash toward the uber hedonistic disaster capitalism du jour, We the People MUST work together to arrive at a global strategy for global recovery. Obama's lackluster performance as POTUS is not surprising to me. I doubt there's a 'leader' on this planet who could stop the speeding bullet of corporate megalomania. Still, I am among those who have noticed that some of Obama's decisions warrant the increasingly vociferous adjurations from progressive democrats that he NOT be a sock puppet for the uber wealthy.
[DUmmie chervilant now is becoming increasingly annoying with his uber DU jour adjurations.]
it seems odd to me to get angry about a proposal to tax the rich. . . .
[Yes, don't lose sight of that! Tax the rich! Tax the rich! Tax the. . . .]
Of course, I am sure that nothing short of apocasocialism now!! is gonna stave off the almost inevitable global catastrophe that you are predicting, but I still don't see the point about raging about a positive step.
[Apocasocialism Now: "I love the smell of nailing the monied. Smells like . . . revenue."]
Re-instating taxes on the wealthy is a no-brainer.
[Therefore it appeals to the DUmmies, who have no brain.]
The blatant part is the timing. It is election time let's throw some crumbs on the peasants. It is just an election gimmick, but it must be passed.
[Peasant under pass.]
Where the hell has he been for 3 years?
[Golf is not a quick sport.]
I gave the reelection campaign $5 today. He got me fired up.
[And that was the purpose. You are the sucker he's been waiting for!]
Finally, the first hints of some fight!
[Obama will FIGHT for a tax plan that has no chance of passing!]
I knew Obama was under there somewhere . . . Starting to like this guy again.
[His body was taken over by a replicant for a while.]
We need the Republican obstructionism. The Republicans must be scape goats. . . . The label, the Party for the Rich, needs to hang firmly around every Republican neck. . . . I can't think of a good slogan...one must be found. . . . We need slogans, short and snappy and to the point... I'm not very good with slogans...help think of some good slogans!
[How about . . .
The rich have more money than we do. Let's take it from them.
No, that's too long and complicated. Let's just go with . . .
BLEED THE RICH! DRAIN THEM DRY!
Short, snappy, to the point.]
Today, he did good.
[The Day When Everything Finally Changed.]
I like it alot.
[It's got a good beat, and it's easy to dance to.]
I hate these god d*mn republicans. Everytime I see them talking on tv fills my heart with murderous rage. F*** them, f*** them all to hell.
[That's the spirit!]
Woah Nellie! Dude, take it easy. . . . Try and be positive with your arguments.
[OK, I'm POSITIVE I hate republicans!]
Keep kicking their butts, President O!!!
[Take these son-of-a-b*tches out!]
Pres Obama, it is class warfare. . . . Let's get it out in the open.
Make no mistake. It is class warfare.
[It's the struggle of the oppressed masses against their capitalist overlords! I mean, come on!]
This Is The Man I Voted For in 2008. And this is the man I will vote proudly for in 2012. . . .
[Another sucker! It's working!]
It was a "Campaign Speech." His polls are down...and it's nothing more than about the campaign.
[Alright, DUmmie KoKo, you guys have worn me down. I'm flipping all the cards and giving YOU the Kewpie Doll! Congratulations!]
Go Obama! We need tax revenue. . . .
[BLEED THE RICH! DRAIN THEM DRY! BLEED THE RICH! . . .]
I sent ten bucks to Obama today, and twenty to the DCCC - Game On
[Obama is just $10 away from being able to tax the rich! C'mon, people! Let's make it happen!]
