Can you believe what that tax cheat Timothy Geithner said? He believes that the evil rich need to be taxed for “the privilege of being an American.”
“And that’s the kind of balance you need. And why is that the case? Because if you don’t try to generate more revenues through tax reform, if you don’t ask the, you know, the most fortunate Americans to bear a slightly larger burden of the privilege of being an American, then you have to — the only way to achieve fiscal sustainability — is through unacceptably deep cuts in benefits for middle class seniors, or unacceptably deep cuts in national security.”
“Most fortunate” Americans my ass. As if some of us were lucky or had our wealth handed to us on a silver f’ing platter or something. What about individual achievement? What about those of us who worked our asses off for what little the government allows us to keep. Tax cheat Geithner calls that being fortunate. Of course I suppose Geithner thinks he was fortunate enough to not go to jail for being a tax cheat also. In a way I guess he was. -JRoycroft

February 28, 2012 - Looks like screwy Lewie Farrakahn is at it again this time spewing his crap about Obama being the possible target of a hit by Israel.
Farrakhan drew a distinction between noble Jews and followers of “the synagogue of Satan,” and he pointed to a recent incident in which the publisher of a Jewish magazine suggested Israeli security forces could help preserve Israel by killing Obama. He attacked Israeli policies, while also directing criticism at perceived Jewish influence in the U.S.
“Jewish people were not the origin of Hollywood, but they took it over,” he said, blaming the entertainment industry for degrading the country’s morality.
Louis Farrakhan is pretty much the poster boy for hate and racism, but he is always entertaining and good for a laugh. Although I doubt that Obama will find his latest 3 hour rant anything but amusing -JRoycroft

February 27, 2012 - African Americans For Obama! Imagine for a moment if any of the white candidates for president announced they were asking all whites to vote for them. They needed the white vote to beat Obama. Whites For Romney – Whites For Gingrich – Whites For Santorum. We all know what the end result of that campaign would be! Al Sharpton would crawl out of his cave and probably bust a vein right there in front of God and all the worlds media. There would be riots breaking out all over the place. Of course certain people in our community have the full and complete backing of every race pimp in America when it comes to getting a pass on anything that involves the color of your skin, so long as it’s not white. I’m betting Martin Luther King Jr would be so disgusted of Barack Obama if he could see what that man has done to this country.
In 2008 Obama received 95% of the black vote and now he is asking for all of the black community to vote for him again.
Here is Obama’s new campaign statement for 2012:
Today, we’re announcing the 2012 launch of African Americans for Obama.
There’s no better time than African American History Month to consider the tremendous progress we’ve made through the sacrifice of so many—or a better time to commit to meeting the very real challenges we face right now.
Visit africanamericans.barackobama.com for more information about all the ways you can get involved—from attending HBCU organizing workshops to becoming a Congregation Captain—and say you’re ready to keep making history. Thanks, and see you out there.
Not only do we have a president playing the class warfare card, but now he has gone to a whole new low by openly, and in your face, playing the race card. Lets face it folks, Obama is a classless jerk and our country is SCREWED! -JRoycroft

February 26, 2012 - I don’t usually pay much attention to emails that have been copied to multiple addresses but this one caught my attention. In fact it sorta pissed me off. Now I couldn’t honestly tell you how many other presidents are guilty of this but it really shouldn’t matter. It’s disrespectful no matter who is doing it.
Thank you to my cousin Connie for passing this along to me.
What do all these photos have in common? :
They all show a basic disrespect for The White House and its
furnishings! The White House belongs to the People of America
and should be more revered than to use anything and everything
for a foot rest! What all these shots have in common is that they
continue to prove that this man has no class!
SO HERE’S A MESSAGE FROM THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA :
KEEP YOUR DAMN FEET OFF OUR FURNITURE!!!

February 25, 2012 - Michelle Obama joins the class warfare bandwagon and questions how the rich can feel good about themselves while others struggle. She preached her little sermon to a crowd of about 300 supporters who payed $300-$10,000 to a fund raising event in Ohio.
Michelle reminded her crowd of wealthy folks about how her husband had been raised by a single parent, with the help of his grandmother – understands the problems of struggling families “because he has lived them.”
I was just wondering, does Barrack Obama’s brother still live in a shack in Kenya? If so, would Obama’s Marxist plan to spread the wealth extend to family living outside the United States? -JRoycroft

February 25, 2012 – PETA, “People tor the Ethical Treatment of Animals” seem to have a little negative media going on now. This according to The Daily Caller. How many other politically based organizations have been outed for what they really are? Planned Parenthood comes to mind.
I’m looking forward to hearing all of PETA’s denials and explanations in the coming days. It should be very interesting. In the mean time I need to go flip my burgers. -JRoycroft

- Children born today will inherit a per capita share of the national debt exceeding $1.5 million, a new study reveals. Republican analysts on the Senate Budget Committee used figures from the Congressional Budget Office to calculate the relative share of the national debt–currently $16 trillion and counting–among different age groups.
The office of Senator Jeff Sessions, ranking member on the Senate Budget Committee, sends along this chart, showing that ‘America’s Per Capita Government Debt is Worse Than Greece,’ as well as Ireland, Italy, France, Portugal, and Spain.
Without much fanfare, US debt to GDP hit 101% with the latest issuance of $32 billion in 2 Year Bonds. If the moment when this ratio went from double to triple digits is still fresh in readers minds, is because it is: total debt hit and surpassed the most recently revised Q4 GDP on January 30, or just three weeks ago. Said otherwise, it has taken the US 21 days to add a full percentage point to this most critical of debt sustainability ratios.
Given the current level of debt, this deficit forecast, and the normal monthly pattern of federal receipts and outlays, rather than hitting the debt limit sometime in early 2013, as expected when the Budget Control Act was signed, the federal government is likely to max out its credit card on or about Election Day, which should make for an especially entertaining spectacle.
A message for those of you who continue to support Obama and plan to vote for him…
If you have contributed to the Obama campaign in any way, or if you vote for him then you are guilty of aiding Obama in the destruction of our Republic! You are an enemy of the United States of America!
I dare you to sit down with your children tonight and explain to them why you have intentionally set them up to be slaves of the government so that they can pay for your foolish decision of allowing a Marxist to continue destroying our Republic. Why are you going to vote for him again? Is it because he makes everything more fair for you by taking it from those who actually earned it? Go ahead and explain to your children how much you love them and how you voted for Obama because you were thinking about them. Keep the cycle of government dependance going just like your parents did for you. Keep collecting those EBT cards that you use in the middle of the night at Walmart when you think no one will see you. And don’t forget to teach them that after your 99 weeks of unemployment benefits are used up how they can find a crooked lawyer who will help you extend your moocher benefits by getting that social security disability check started. Yea, life’s been pretty damn good for you under the food stamp president Obama hasn’t it? But you want to know something really interesting? Who are you going to steal from when the governments tit runs dry after there’s no one left to take from? Oh, but you aren’t smart enough to understand the consequences of your vote now are you? You’re just a dumb government educated moron without a clue. When your children grow up and are left paying for your stupid decisions I can only hope that they one day sit down with you and ask what you did to try and stop the insanity, or maybe ask what the hell were you thinking?! -JRoycroft

February 23, 2012 - With gas prices rising to near $6 per gallon in Florida, who or what is to blame for this? Obama’s house boy Jay Carney says that Obama will not “accept responsibility” for rise in gas prices, yet when Bush was in office what did we hear from Princess Pelosi? : “The price of oil is at the doorstep – $4 dollars plus per gallon for oil, is attributed to two oil men in the White House.” Funny how the story changes when a Marxist jerk is holding the bag!
House boy Jay Carney went on to say that domestic oil production is at a record high right now. That’s a complete lie and the Obama regime knows it. Oil production is at a record low because of Obama.:
- Oil and natural gas production on federal lands is down by more than 40 percent compared to 10 years ago.
- Under the Obama administration, 2010 had the lowest number of onshore leases issued since 1984.
- The Obama administration held only one offshore lease sale in 2011.
Need proof that the Obamamedia lays low on high gas price reports as opposed to George Bush’s years in office? Well then check this out : The Business and Media Institute analyzed broadcast network news references to gas or fuel prices between Jan. 20 and Feb. 20, 2012 and from March 24 and April 24, 2008. It found that in the 2008 period there were more than 4 times as many gas prices stories, news briefs or news headlines on ABC, CBS and NBC as there were in 2012 (97 to 21). Hmmmmm … I’d say that the Obamamedia is playing a game of favorites when it comes to gas price reports under the Obama regime. -JRoycroft
