May 29, 2012 – In Barack Obama’s America, half of Americans live in a household are receiving some form of government entitlement check. This according to the most recent Census Bureau data.
The data shows 49.1% who are living in a house receive at least one government benefit. That 49.1% figure is up from 30% in the early 1980s and up from 44.4% in just 2008!
This is Barack Obama’s entitlement society, where the majority of Americans are dependent on government. These are the very people who will vote for the Marxist again. The moochers, leaches and parasites who suck the very life out of our economy by using the government as a means of plunder at the expense of hard working honest members of society.
When you see a car with a bumper sticker showing support for the re-election of Barack Obama, you can be sure of this -that person is your enemy, an enemy of everything you’ve worked your ass off to achieve. -JRoycroft
Sept 20, 2011- In his speech yesterday Obama said “This is not class warfare, it’s math.”
Really? Here’s a definition of class warfare we might use: “[T]he antagonism between the proletariat and the bourgeoisie is a struggle of class against class.” That definition is from Karl Marx. Obama is the one engaged in the antagonizing, pinning ailing seniors against wealthy Americans, pinning college hopefuls against corporate profits.
Nearly every day now we are hearing Obama engaged in his effort to demonize the wealthy Americans in his effort to recruit support from the moocher class.
John Drew, who wrote about meeting a young Barack Obama, at the time, Obama was coming to realize that he could have a better shot at a “revolution” if he went about through government and politics: “Whatever impact our encounter might have had on him, I know something about what Barack Obama believed in 1980. At that time, the future president was a doctrinaire Marxist revolutionary, although perhaps — for the first time — considering conventional politics as a more practical road to socialism.”
So what ever happened to the American Dream? Remember how once upon a time when we believed we all had the opportunity to work hard, earn a living, raise a family and make a better life for ourselves than our parents did? In America, you can still become anything you want, so long as you work for it. The opportunity is still there. It never left. If you listen to liberals you would think the concept of the American dream is fading away. Obama wants us to believe that we need him, we need government to help us in every facet of our lives. He wants us to believe that wealthy Americans are the enemy and they owe us a share of their lives.
If not for wealthy Americans, there would be no opportunity for jobs. When was the last time a poor person hired someone? Why do so many people feel the need to punish those who succeed, but then praise the mediocre or those who choose the path of least resistance? This is not the great, strong American idea that I was taught about in my childhood. We are turning from an American-idea of opportunity toward a Marxist-idea of opportunity. From the Wall Street Journal …
Before 2007, Americans generally opposed higher taxes on the wealthy because they thought they would be wealthy too some day.
Not anymore. One reason President Obama’s “Buffett Rule” (applied to those making $1 million or more a year) may be politically popular is that most voters no longer see themselves reaching the $1 million mark – let alone $1 million a year.
According to a new poll from the Associated Press and CNBC, 79% of Americans say it’s unlikely they’ll have $1 million or more in assets over the next 10 years. Fully 61% said it is “extremely” or “very difficult” to become a millionaire in the U.S. today…
What’s even more surprising is that the U.S. no longer leads the world in its hopes for upward mobility. Australians are more optimistic, though only slightly: 72% of them said it’s unlikely they’ll become millionaires.
Now we find ourselves in the middle of Obama’s American dream. His dream of creating a nation that is quickly sliding toward Marxism, whether we choose to believe it or not.
Those of us who still believe in our parents American dream must hold on to our great country. We must keep the faith. – J Roycroft

How many of you noticed that our Marxist ruler used the word “fair” or some variation of the word seven times in his speech? How many times did you hear him say the words “free” or “freedom?” None. Not once.
Now how do you suppose Obama plans to pay for his job plan? Revenues. Of course if the private sector were to be allowed to use that good old free enterprise revenues would begin growing instantly. Of course the Marxist ruler will not allow that to happen. It’s not the way he does business. In his mind the only way to get government revenue is wealth redistribution, and that will of course be taken, by force, from the wealthy.
Are there any doubts that Obama wasn’t preaching class warfare in his speech? He said he wasn’t, but what does this tell you…
Obama: “These men and women grew up with faith in an America where hard work and responsibility paid off. They believed in a country where everyone gets a fair shake and does their fair share …”
“In addition to the trillion dollars of spending cuts I’ve already signed into law, it’s a balanced plan that would reduce the deficit by making additional spending cuts … and by reforming our tax code in a way that asks the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations to pay their fair share.”
“I’m also well aware that there are many Republicans who don’t believe we should raise taxes on those who are most fortunate and can best afford it. But here is what every American knows. While most people in this country struggle to make ends meet, a few of the most affluent citizens and corporations enjoy tax breaks and loopholes that nobody else gets.”
“Right now, Warren Buffet pays a lower tax rate than his secretary – an outrage he has asked us to fix. We need a tax code where everyone gets a fair shake, and everybody pays their fair share. And I believe the vast majority of wealthy Americans and CEOs are willing to do just that, if it helps the economy grow and gets our fiscal house in order.”
“Should we keep tax loopholes for oil companies? Or should we use that money to give small business owners a tax credit when they hire new workers? Because we can’t afford to do both. Should we keep tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires? Or should we put teachers back to work so our kids can graduate ready for college and good jobs? Right now, we can’t afford to do both.”
“This isn’t political grandstanding. This isn’t class warfare. This is simple math. These are real choices that we have to make. And I’m pretty sure I know what most Americans would choose. It’s not even close. And it’s time for us to do what’s right for our future.”
Did you catch the Warren Buffet bull shit? The fact is, Buffet pays a lower tax rate than his secretary because she has earned income and his money comes from capital gains. The income tax rate is around 35% on his secretary. His capital gains tax rate is 15%. This is a complete and intentional lie to make the ignorant believe that Warren Buffet pays less in income taxes than his secretary. The truth is, if his secretary paid capital gains tax she would be paying the same as Buffet. They are two completely different taxes.

Over the last several months, I have been growing more and more disgusted over the way our country has been mismanaged and thrown into a spiral of economic disaster. I have been vocal about my concerns for the future of my children and country. Folks, we are in dire straights right now and it doesn’t look like it’s going to get any better anytime soon. You don’t have to be a Conservative to realize that our country has definitely changed for the worse. If you see it any other way then you must be either ignorant or in denial. My disgust and contempt for Barack Obama continues to grow every time I see his face and every time I hear him speak. I am sick of him. Absolutely sick of him and his followers.
Are you aware that forty percent of Americans think that our economy is in a permanent state of decline and will never get better? Five out of ten Americans think there is no chance that their children will have better lives than they did. For generations, that has been the American dream. The dream that I’ll work hard, I’ll care for my children, I’ll nurture them, I’ll see that they are educated, and they will have a better life than I had. That dream, our dream, is gone.
The standard of living that we have in this country was not given to us by our government. Our standard of living was brought to us by free people working in an economic system of capitalism and free enterprise. Every individual was empowered to pursue their dreams as far as their dreams would take them. Our rule of law was always out there ready and willing to protect them, us, from the predators, both economic and criminal. It was the free enterprise system that created a standard of living unsurpassed by any other economic system anywhere in the world in the history of civilized man. Then, the people of this country, while believing in false hopes, put a man dedicated to the destruction of capitalism and free enterprise in the White House.
As late as the 1980s, Barack Hussein Obama was a dedicated Marxist revolutionary. When he finally figured out that there wasn’t going to be a Communist revolution in the United States, he changed his strategy. Both his mother and father were Communists. When his father disappeared from his life, his mother fell in love with another Communist. He befriended Communists while in college. Then he gravitated toward Communist professors in college. Now, he is the President of the United States.
When Barack Obama made his decision that he was going to finally enter into politics, he decided that he would make that announcement in the home of two dedicated Communist revolutionaries, Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers. From his childhood, through college, and his entry into politics, everything about him has been infused in Marxism and anti-capitalism. He was driven by hatred for the private sector and free enterprise. He is a man truly in love with government. Then he’s elected President of the United States. Now the American dream is over. Our free market economy is in permanent decline, and quite possibly will never get better.
So here we are. What in the hell are we going to do now? How do we restore our American dream, or can we?
We have illegal aliens dancing in our streets openly displaying their pride in being criminals. They do this in front of my state capitol where laws are created. Our Federal government doesn’t care. They refuse to enforce federal law. They won’t let our states protect us from these invaders. We are at the mercy of a Marxist Ruler who has all but fulfilled his plan to change America.
This weekend, we will be out celebrating the day of our independence. We will shoot our fireworks, cook out, and enjoy our time with friends and family. While you are enjoying your day, take notice at those who you know to be Obama supporters. Take notice if they are also celebrating with flag and fireworks – just know that when you see these people, and you will, that they are the ones who voted for a man who is against every single thing the fourth of July stands for. They are the reason your children’s children will never have the freedoms and liberties that we grew up with. Their American dream is forever changed.
Good bye, American pie.
This is me being completely honest with you. My disgust with and contempt for Barack Obama grows every time I hear that dangerous man speak. Obama’s press conference yesterday was little more than an exercise in class warfare, big government rhetoric. His remarks were aimed almost exclusively at the massive numbers of dumb masses who actually buy into his “us vs. them” class warfare rhetoric. Idiots who spend their days wallowing in self-pity brought on by their belief that all those disgusting rich people have the things they have because they’ve spent their lives exploiting the poor, cheating on their income taxes and engaging in various other types of immoral and illegal behavior.
Obama painted a picture of Americans who want a “fair” society, college education for their children, meat inspections, tornado warnings, and medical research for the sick versus the evil Republicans who want to give tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires buzzing around on their corporate jets! Here’s just one example from yesterday’s presser:
“If we do not have revenues, that means there are a bunch of kids out there who do not have college scholarships,” Obama said. “[It] might compromise the National Weather Services. It means we might not be funding critical medical research. It means that food inspection might be compromised. I’ve said to Republican leaders, ‘You go talk to your constituents and ask them, “Are you willing to compromise your kids’ safety so some corporate-jet owner can get a tax break?”
Again, why the focus on these corporate jets? Spending by our federal government is set to grow well over $46 trillion over the next ten years. This jet tax break that we are talking about would gain us $3 billion over the next ten years. $3 billion. Does anyone find it frustrating that we are focusing on such a tiny blip on the Richter scale of government spending?
Well you know why Obama is focusing on private jets, don’t you? That would be because private jets might be the number-one really visible of wealth in this country. Probably about 80% of the population will see a small jet in the sky on any given day. This is especially true in urban areas – where the airports are and, and, coincidentally, where many of the poor that Obama is courting live. Perhaps the hope is that by casting the patina of evil on the people riding in those jets a certain reaction can be promoted every time one flies overhead. “Yeah – there’s another private jet. I’ll be there’s some CEO in that jet who doesn’t pay his fair share in taxes; and he probably is earning thousands of times more than the people who work for him and made him rich. Bastard!”
There’s another aspect to making people who fly on private jets the focus of evil. Airport security. You have 95-year-old women dying of cancer having to remove their Depends. You can’t get on an airplane carrying more than 3oz of sunscreen. You junk gets manhandled every time you fly somewhere. The Obama comes along and talks about these CEOs (it’s always CEOs) getting in his private jet without having to go through any security and carrying anything he wants to carry. That whole riff is designed to do nothing less than create a sense of resentment in those who fly commercial.
Let me share something else with you about these corporate jets. It’s not always CEOs. In fact, it’s not usually CEOs. Let’s take a company in New Jersey with a production facility in Arkansas. Something goes wrong with the automation on the Arkansas production line. If it is not fixed quickly a few hundred Arkansas workers will be told that the plant will not be operating for a few days. Production lost. Income lost. So an IT automation expert is loaded on the corporate jet at Newark and flown to the small Arkansas town where the production line is located – a town with no commercial air service. The problem is fixed overnight, and the production line opens on schedule.
Then there’s the Corporate Angel Network. Click on the link to see their website. Here’s the slogan: “Cancer Patients Fly Free In Empty Seats on Corporate Jets.” In 2010 the Corporate Angel Network flew 3.021 cancer patients for free to and from treatment centers. Tell me – do cancer patients fly free in empty seats on commercial carriers? The answer is NO.
And another thing about these corporate jet tax breaks. What Barack Obama failed to tell us is that this “accelerated depreciation” tax credit is something that was included …… in his own stimulus plan! The great Recovery and Reinvestment Act, passed by an all-Democrat Congress and championed by Barack Obama himself, included these very tax breaks that he is now demonizing. The Associated Press ran this story in February of 2009:
Just a few months after lawmakers scolded auto executives for flying to Washington in private jets, Congress approved a tax break in the stimulus package to help businesses buy their own planes.
The incentive — first used to help plane makers recover from the 2001 terror attacks — sharply reduces the up front tax bill for companies who buy assets like business planes.
The aviation industry, which is cutting jobs as it suffers from declining shipments and canceled orders, hopes the tax break in the economic-stimulus bill just signed by President Barack Obama will persuade more companies to buy planes and snap a slump in general aviation that began last year.
“This is exactly the type of financial incentive that should be included in a stimulus bill,” said Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Kan., in an interview. His state lost at least 6,900 jobs at Cessna and Hawker Beechcraft, both based in Wichita.…
The incentive — known as accelerated depreciation — lets companies take a larger deduction in the early years of the life of an asset such as a plane.
Companies will have to place orders by the end of 2009, and those planes will need to be delivered by the end of 2010 to take advantage of the tax benefit.
First used in the months following 9/11, an industry study found accelerated depreciation helped boost sales by 43 percent, and later contributed an additional $2 billion in sales when implemented again in 2003.
Another asinine claim in Obama’s presser included this falsehood about taxes being lower now than they have ever been. Here’s what he said in his presser … and, again, notice the disdain in his voice in referencing corporate jets:
If you are a wealthy CEO or hedge fund manager in America right now, your taxes are lower than they have ever been. They’re lower than they’ve been since the 1950s. And you can afford it. You’ll still be able to ride on your corporate jet. You’ll just have to pay a little more…
Anybody who will simply look at a chart of federal tax income rates and determine that taxes were higher in the 50s must have been educated in government schools. Income tax rates only tell part of the story: According to the Tax Foundation, more than two-thirds of all taxes paid by Americans in 2010 will be something other than income taxes. We must also consider payroll taxes, sales taxes, property taxes, deductions, all of which play a role in the amount of money government collects and the burden it places on its citizens. So PolitiFact found a way to analyze our tax burden …
There is another way — calculating all taxes paid by Americans and dividing the sum by the nation’s total income. To make this calculation, we turned to the Tax Foundation’s annual “Tax Freedom Day” report, which offers calculations of total tax burden going back to 1900. (There was no federal income tax then, but there were state and other taxes.)
The foundation’s expected tax burden for 2010 is 26.9 percent, up slightly from the 2009 tax burden of 26.6 percent. (This is not unusual: The tax burden typically falls during recessions, as taxpayers move to lower tax brackets.)
Under Eisenhower, that figure ranged from 24.8 percent to 27.7 percent, with the figure lower than 26.9 percent for seven out of eight years. So by this measurement, the tax burden was lower most of the time under Eisenhower.
Now that we have our facts straight, let’s talk about the fact that Barack Obama is standing up there at his podium telling you what you can and cannot afford. He said that taxes are “lower than they’ve been since the 1950s. And you can afford it.” That’s Obama channeling Karl Marx: “From each according to their ability. To each according to their need.”
We have a Marxist in the White House.

April 22, 2011 - For the first time since the Great Depression households are receiving more income from the government than they are paying the government in taxes.
This growing trend is going to cripple our society. We are rapidly approaching the point of no return when the producers can no longer support the growing mass of deadbeats and moochers. We are now facing the most predictable crisis in the history of our Republic.
For the first time since the Great Depression, households are receiving more income from the government than they are paying the government in taxes. The combination of more cash from various programs, called transfer payments, and lower taxes has been a double-barreled boost to consumers’ buying power, while also blowing a hole in the deficit. The 1930s offer a cautionary tale: The only other time government income support exceeded taxes paid was from 1931 to 1936. That trend reversed in 1936, after a recovery was underway, and the economy fell back into a second leg of recession during 1937 and 1938.
- Households received $2.3 trillion in government income support in 2010.
- Government cash accounts for 79 percent of household income growth since 2007.
- Since 2007, household tax payments have fallen by $312 billion
We can all thank our liberal hack Community Organizer Barack Obama for achieving this goal. This is exactly what he wants. Total dependence on the government. A society where households are receiving more income from the government than they are paying in taxes.
The few of us that are still willing to bust our asses to support our families will hold our heads high in the face of this disaster. Meanwhile, those moochers on the left will continue to suck the government’s nipple dry. At this rate there will soon be no one left to steal from.
April 21, 2011 – At a town hall meeting in Virginia, Obama said he wanted to live in a society that is fair. Just what did he really mean by that statement? Why didn’t he say instead that he wanted to live in a society that is free, with liberty? And just whats so damn fair about forced government health care?
This political hack, this Marxist revolutionary said exactly what he meant. He wants to live in a society where the government takes stuff away from people who have more than me and gives it to me.
Maybe he should just re-write the Constitution to say “with fairness and justice for all.”
Let’s face it folks, Obama is all about spreading your hard-earned wealth around to the moocher class. We need to understand that Obama isn’t really the problem here, it’s the people who put him there that we need to be worried about. We all need to focus on the future and pay close attention from here to 2012 and make damn sure we do everything in our power to get this Marxist out of office.
What is fair? Society is fair when people get what they earned!.
