Eugene Robinson – Tax cut fight highlights Democrats’ missing convictions

Eugene Robinson – Tax cut fight highlights Democrats’ missing convictions.

I just could not resist bringing your attention to this article by the Rabid Right Winger Eugene Robinson.  How can otherwise intelligent people be so very stupidly absurd when it comes to their political views?  How?  I hear them or read them and if I am not angry or sickened by  idiocy I am  amazed at how they can twist and turn and bend the hall of goofy mirrors to  rant for the impossible.

The rant over the Bush Tax Cuts which will be the Obama Tax hikes is typical.  By the way I have to say that these tax hikes are typical of everything Obama and his Democrats have done: monstrous!

Anyhow, getting back to Robinson’s rant:

In other words, there’s no additional money in the national coffers for the victims of the most devastating recession since the Great Depression. But to help investment bankers start the new year right, perhaps with a new Mercedes or a bit of sun in the Caribbean? Step right up, and we’ll write you a check.”


Don’t look now Mr. Robinson but it was the Democrats that handed out all those bail-outs and buy-outs (GM and AIG), stimulus packages that went to banks also after first being bailed out so they could disperse the money to small businesses but they kept it instead and then gave themselves those bonuses while the Republicans (Party of No) repeatedly voted No to all that out of control nation destroying spending the last four years.  The Dems have been in power since 2006 remember and refused to curb the mortgage lending urged on by Dem Rep. Barney Frank and Dem Senator Chris Dodd that ultimately led to all the Wall Street  smoke and mirrors trading because they knew that Freddie Mac and Fannie mae would buy the toxic paper and the US Treasury (tax payers) would bail-out Freddie and Fanny.  Actually we the tax payers thanks to our Congress now own Fanny and Freddie along with GM and AIG.

And while I am here I would like to remind you that the “most devastating recession since the Great Depression.” can also be laid at the feet of the Democrats and Obama because the unholy spending   has caused businesses to pull back and stop hiring and start instead to trim their workforce.  Then Obama came along later and stopped all drilling in the Gulf of Mexico thus making for 400,000 more jobs lost.  It just amazes me that you are a national columnist but you seem to have missed these events.  BB

You can now read the whole article if you want :),  and then if you want you can rant a bit in the comment section.  It doesn’t do any real good except to empty your spleen.  Then again that’s a good thing too.  BB

While Listening to Cashin – IN on the Fox Business network , with Cheryl Casone , Heather needs to realize that its BIG ANTI-GOVERNMENT BUSINESS thats got Private sector Business sitting on the Side Lines afraid to spend the Trillions they have in hoarding !!!!!! IN 2008 they saw this Democratic Anti-Free Enterprise Wave coming and it scared everyone to the side lines because they did not know what to expect out of the Incoming anti Business Democratic party , they are all about saving the earth from people , you can see it in their legislation

How is it that Obama and the Democrats are better qualified to take tax money from the rich and spread it out to the rest of society when he lied about the shovel ready JOBS ?????

Why should we the people trust that Obama and the Democrats are better qualified at passing down the tax money collected rather than the top tax rate class spreading it out to the rest of society , While Obama had the FEDERAL RESERVE bailing out all the Foreign Countries ,with Our tax Money and then Tells us all we need to pay for this Unjust transaction , I saw the Washington Times article on this so Why should we the people be bailing out the Foreign Countries to the tune of 3.3 Trillion and then GET STUCK With the BILL ???

Fed aid in financial crisis went beyond U.S. banks to industry, foreign firms

Plus when the Obama Democratic Congress have Proved that they are JUST as GREEDY and Hoard the Money and pass it out to their FRIENDS and Special Interests , and Obama even came out and Said He Lied about the Shovel Ready JOBS , Heck all that Money went to His Friends , so I would rather take My Chances at trying to get a Job from a Rich Private sector person rather than having to FIT into the Special Interest Class to get a Crum ….. This is why a FLAT TAX SYSTEM Would be the Ultimate CIVIL RIGHTS TAX RATE AGENDA for the USA !!!!!!!!!!!!!

If the EU cannot make the TAX everyone To Death plan work then what Is the USA doing considering this Tax Trend ?????

Maybe we should take a Pro Growth approach rather than this Anti-Growth Direction thats LEFT the EU in even worse Fiscal Shape , and If the FEDERAL RESERVE would Quit Bailing Out everyone in the world and Sticking the USA taxpayer with the Bill it would be closer to economic recovery . I heard Greenspan say everyone needs to Quit picking on the FED this Morning on Squawk BOX and I thought so what he was really saying was Hey American people shut up and quit bellyaching about the FED giving away all the Tax payer money and sticking us with the Bill WOW is that the way Greenspan Thinks ???

Instead of spreading the wealth around, spread this around. It might wake some people up.

If you’ve started to wonder what the real costs of socialism are going to be, once the full program in these United States hits your wallet, take a look at the table. As you digest these mind-boggling figures, keep in mind that in spite of these astronomical tax rates, these countries are still not financing their social welfare programs exclusively from tax revenues! They are deeply mired in public debt of gargantuan proportions. Greece has reached the point where its debt is so huge it is in imminent danger of defaulting. That is the reason the European economic community has intervened to bail them out. If your following the financial news, you know Spain and Portugal are right behind Greece .

The United States is now heading right down the same path. The VAT tax in the table is the national sales tax that Europeans pay. Stay tuned because that is exactly what you can expect to see the administration proposing after the fall elections. The initial percentage in the United States isn’t going to be anywhere near the outrageous numbers you now see in Europe . Guess what, the current outrageous numbers in Europe didn’t start out as outrageous either. They started out as minisculeright around the 1% or 2% where they will start out in the United States . Magically however, they ran up over the years to where they are now. Expect the same thing here.

It is the notion that with hard work and perseverance, anybody can get ahead economically here. Do you think that can ever happen with tax rates between 60% and 80%? Think again. With the government taking that percentage of your money, your life will be exactly like life in Europe . You will never be able to buy a home. You will never buy a car. You will never send your children to college. Lets not shuffle the battle cry of the socialists under the rug either. Its always the same cry. Equalize income. Spread the wealth to the poor (whoever they are). Level the economic playing field. Accomplish that and everything will be rosy.

Its time to take a really hard look at reality. Greece is a perfect example. Despite the socialism system that has ruled this country for decades, with a 65% tax rate, they are drowning in public debt, would have defaulted without hundreds of billions in bailout money, and still. . .20% of their population lives in poverty. What has all that socialism money bought, besides ultimate power for the politicians running the show? Do you think these people are “free”? They’re not. They are slaves to their economic “system.”

Instead of spreading the wealth around, spread this around. It might wake some people up.

Hello , why are we NOT seeing the Car Companies manufacturing this Technology on board the NEW Electric cars as a On-the-GO charging unit that charges the battery as the car runs , or as the car sets , reacting to the charge level in the Cars battery ??? .
This would eliminate the Need for additional Car charging Facilities and more coal Fired or Hydro Power Facilities , thereby reducing the Carbon Foot print . Why are we NOT seeing this as a Tax Incentive Plan developed to generate the Development and use of this in USA Domestic Markets ??? HELLO is there a Greater Cause than the International OIL Industry and the Obama Oil Industry ?????
Why NOT have Permanent Tax Extensions for Innovative progress made at the Individual and Corporate Levels of the economy that moves this development forward ?? Democrats want to be the party of the Lean Forward era so lean forward with this Enterprising Independence creating Technology !!!! This should be how fuel prices are realized by competing energy choices being created , Like this ;

President Obama BREAK DOWN this COLLUSION YOU HAVE GOING and allow REAL PROGRESS to be achieved !!!!!!!

Thank you Hungry! You really got it off your chest in a big way and passed along a lot of info at the same time. BB

Robinson a right winger? I would call it left. The libs have mislabeled, no doubt on purpose, the proposal. The proposal is not a tax cut at all. It is a proposal NOT to raise taxes.

Yes! But the Lefties don’t want the public to see it that way so they can use this as a selling point in 2012. Can’t you hear them now yelling how THEY gave us a tax cut? BB

While the debt commission report makes many necessary cuts, it doesn’t go nearly far enough (and Congress is likely to avoid going even as far as the report does), and it calls for massive tax increases totaling $1.13 trillion.

For every $1 in cuts there are $2 in tax increases.

“Sorry we spent too much, but now we’re going to need you to pay up” probably won’t be a winning message with voters.

Wonder how the left will try to spin that into a tax cut?

Yes I saw that little inclusion among the proposed cuts but I don’t see a Republican Congress giving us a tax increase in this climate. AND, this climate of Tea Party Patriots being mad and very involved is NOT going to go away any time soon. A great many of the Tea Party Movement people are in the 30-40 age range who have just gotten involved in politics for the first time and they have a long life ahead of them. Our country has suffered under the plague of giving in to rabid Leftist and any other NUTS out there just to keep the peace and finally gone too far.

I have been saying for some time now that We the People should thank Obama for his extreme actions because he woke the American people up out of their selfish self-centered sleep. BB

BB, McConnell and Bonehead are willing to compromise just as they did today. Obama will take credit for the “tax cut” as he will call it of the Bush tax reforms. Then he will use it to beat the GOP over the head in 2012. In fact he is already getting that pitch warmed up. Mc and Bonehead will claim they did all they could “for the good of the people” when in all actuality it was nothing more than business as usual. I have said and I will repeat, the conservatives, real conservatives ,need to find someone other than Bonehead to be Speaker of the House. He will sell us down the river and bring on a blood bath that will make this past one look like a mild nose bleed. People like him and Mac will do what ever is necessary to stay in power. They are no different than a Pelosi or a Reid. Just dressed up in a different costume.

It seems like this may not make it thru the Senate. I hope it doesn’t for the very reason you give. The Republicans should hold on until they get the House. And maybe this is just a ploy on their part knowing the rabid Dems wouldn’t go for it but the Republicans can still say that they tried. Who knows how those people will act anyhow. BB
