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

Remember when this group actually meant something?
Army Pfc. Bradley Manning has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, the Associated Press reports. Manning is most famous for allegedly leaking troves of classified documents, including State Department cables and Military files, to WikiLeaks. He was arraigned last week in Ft. Meade, Maryland and is being charged with “engineering the biggest leak of classified information in U.S. history.”
All because he was a disgruntled and morally and sexually frustrated gay, young man. That’s motive enough for the distinguished Nobel bunch.
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
