I went to the movies yesterday. I saw “I Want Your Money” http://www.iwantyourmoney.net/
Every American should see this movie.
But admittedly, it will make Liberals and Progressives explode, it has some harsh words for Republicans especially after 2003 when they did become Democrats and how we can’t afford that again.
But the big one that I thought was really fascinating was: Greed.
The Liberals have made this their center post for most of my life and they especially have made it the big focus now that they stand on the precipice of not having it like they did or not at all.
What is Greed?
And one of the questions raised in the documentary,” Name me one society that is not based on greed?”
That’s a more profound question than it looks because if you’re truly honest with yourself and with others you already know the real answer.
It doesn’t exist.
So using “greed” as a political weapon is dishonest at best.
The liberals and the progressives are greedy. There just greedy with your money.
They are greedy for their own power.
And their class warfare against “the rich” is just using your greed to further theirs.
“The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money [to spend].” (attributed to many people).
And we’ve run out of money period. But yet, Obama and crew still want to spend even more. They don’t know any other way.
Greed is a pernicious thing.
We all do it.
I do it.
Getting “something for free” is a form of greed because nothing tangible is ever free.
Just yesterday I saw a new version of the Andy Griffith Health Care pimp-me commercial talking about all the “free” stuff that Medicare patients were going to get under ObamaCare.
That’s disingenuous at best, and a lie at worst.
1) If Doctors stop taking Medicare patients then you’re screwed. And they are.
2) the “free” service has to be paid by someone. That someone being you. it’s called the premium. That shared risk pool money you pay for insurance.
So they are being greedy with your money.
And Medicare is going to be cut by $500 Billion (at least according to the bill), especially Medicare Advantage.
Do Democrats tout that one? Of Course not!
And then the Democrats go after “the rich” and make you envious of them.
That’s a form of greed. Because you lust after their money. You covet their money. The money they’ve earned and you haven’t.
Mind you, Democrats have plenty of “rich” people backing them and plenty of Unions that are International entities (AFL-CIO and SEIU just to name 2) and could get money from foreign sources.
But they aren’t going to mention it.
And neither will the Ministry of Truth Media.
Why would they. They are playing on your emotions. They are manipulating you. Why point out their duplicity. 🙂
Welfare is greedy.
You’re being paid by other people’s labor.
So, name me a society free of greed.
It doesn’t exist.
So when the Democrats trot out class warfare and proclaim piously how they are for the working man and the poor against “the rich” and the”greedy” laugh in their both of their two faces!!
Just this weekend: “They’re fighting back. The empire is striking back. To win this election, they are plowing tens of millions of dollars into front groups. They are running misleading negative ads all across the country.”-President Obama
And Democrats aren’t?
What about his front groups like Moveon.Org (Foreign Billionaire George Soros), The SEIU, The AFL-CIO, The UAW, Media Matters, and on and on and on??
What of their nothing but negative ads??
And where is the “fair” media. The “journalists”??
They are in bed with Obama. Incestuously so.
Have you seen any of this out of Katie Couric? Or Brian Williams? Or Diane Sawyer?
No. And you won’t either.
“I did not run for office to be helping out a bunch of, you know, fat-cat bankers on Wall Street,” President Barack Obama told CBS’ “60 Minutes.” He also has decried the “arrogance and greed” and “excess greed, excess compensation” of America’s business executives.
Top Democrats like Obama constantly denounce private avarice. But when the fat cats are feds, not financiers, they go silent. To leading Democrats, government greed is good.
Just as Wall Street and corporate America relentlessly pursue profits, Congress and federal bureaucrats possess a ravenous hunger for trillions of tax dollars to fuel lavish spending schemes, underwrite gluttonous public salaries and benefits, and seize increasing power.
These days, the wallets of many American taxpayers feel like helium balloons. Yet Washington always wants more.
A post-election, Democrat-led, lame-duck congressional session may tax “the rich” ― specifically, individuals who earn north of $200,000 annually and married couples who make above $250,000.
If so, top tax rates would rise from 35 percent to 39.6 percent. Remember: These disgusting plutocrats are expected to pay higher taxes and simultaneously hire the unemployed.
Furthermore, the capital gains tax could jump from 15 percent to 20 percent (rising to 23.8 percent in 2013, thanks to ObamaCare), and the dividends tax could soar from 15 percent to 39.6 percent. This also would snatch growth capital from the productive sector.
The Death Tax now dead could be resurrected at 55 percent on estates exceeding $1 million. If key Democrats prevail, they would slam this sickly economy with at least $678 billion in higher taxes, the National Taxpayers Union estimates.
Meanwhile, as Americans miss mortgage payments, shutter businesses and abandon their dreams, it’s happy hour for government employees. What reformist Republican Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey properly calls “shared sacrifice” means something completely different in Washington: The American people sacrifice, and the feds share in the proceeds.
As the Heritage Foundation calculates, between December 2007 (the start of the Great Recession) and July 2010, private-sector employment shrank by 7,837,000 positions, or 6.8 percent.
However, federal civilian employment grew by 198,000 positions, or 10 percent, not counting temporary Census workers. In 2009, the Bureau of Economic Analysis reports, private-sector salaries and benefits averaged $61,051.
The federal-civilian figure? $123,049 ― more than double. Also, the Office of Personnel Management found that between December 2007 and June 2009, the number of federal employees earning at least $170,000 zoomed 93 percent.
As if devouring your money were not enough, Washington also sticks its collective snout everywhere. The feds have ordered New York City to change 250,900 street signs from ALL CAPS to caps and lower case, supposedly because “BROADWAY” is tougher to read than “Broadway.”
Rather than invite D.C. to SHOVE IT, Mayor Michael Bloomberg rolled over and appropriated $27.6 million to obey Washington’s latest edict. This sum could pay 219 rookie cops their $41,975 starting salaries for three years. (Deroy Murdock in Korea Times)
But the Democrats aren’t “greedy”. 🙂
It’s only Republicans and non-Democrats who are “greedy” for both money and power. 🙂
Don’t believe me? Just ask them…
