Divorce Agreement

 
 

American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists,
Marxists and Obama supporters, et al:

We have stuck together since the late 1950’s, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce….  I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has run its course. Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right so let’s just end it on friendly terms.  We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

Here is a model separation agreement:

Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a portion.  That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement.  After that, it should be relatively easy!  Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

We don’t like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.  You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.  Since you hate guns and war, we’ll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military.  You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O’Donnell (You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them).

We’ll keep the capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street.  You can have your beloved homeless, homeboys, hippies and illegal aliens.  We’ll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO’s and rednecks.  We’ll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood.

You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we’ll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us. You can have the peaceniks and war protesters.  When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we’ll help provide them security.

We’ll keep our Judeo-Christian values..  You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism and Shirley McClain.  You can also have the U.N. but we will no longer be paying the bill.

We’ll keep the SUVs, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars.  You can take every Subaru station wagon you can find.

You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors.  We’ll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right.  We’ll keep The Battle Hymn of the Republic and the National Anthem.  I’m sure you’ll be happy to substitute Imagine, I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing, Kum Ba Ya or We Are the World.

We’ll practice trickle down economics and you can give trickle up poverty your best shot.  Since it often so offends you, we’ll keep our history, our name and our flag. 

Would you agree to this?  If so, please pass it along to other like minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete.  In the spirit of friendly parting, I’ll bet you can’t answer which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

Sincerely,

John J. Wall

Law Student and an American

P.S. ~ Also, please take Ted Turner, Sean Penn, Martin Sheen, Barbara Streisand, & Jane Fonda with you..

P.P.S. ~ And we won’t have to press 1 for English.

Suggestion For Teaching If Someone Really Approves Socialism

Yesterday was Super Bowl evening and I enjoyed a pitcher of beer at a local watering hole. The bar staff knows I am a conservative so they always like to taunt me with political jabs about me being the heartless greedy conservative who is trying to make money on the backs of the poor. I decided this time I was going to teach these young progressive liberals a lesson without debate.The bartender’s service and hospitality was superb while I was there. They know that I tip well. I picked out the most sorry and impoverished looking individual in the local watering hole. I gave the bartender exactly the money I owed him for the beer and walked over to the identified sad sack loser individual and gave him the tip money that I should have given to the bartender. I turned to the bartender and said, ‘This person needs the tip money more than you.’ The bartender had a very angry look on his face so I said, ‘How do you like Socialism now?’Maybe from that experience, the bartender might realize that Socialism in action is not such a positive thing that he thought it might be. Socialism is a positive idea to those folks until they have experienced the consequences of it.

Lay Off Letter From An Excellent Boss

Dear Employees:

As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barack Obama is our President and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way.  To compensate for these increases, our prices would have to increase by about 10%. But since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off sixty of our employees instead.

 This has really been bothering me since I believe we are family here and I didn’t know how to choose who would have to go.

So, this is what I did. I walked through our parking lots and found sixty ‘Obama’ bumper stickers on our employees’ cars and have decided these folks will be the ones to let go. I can’t think of a more fair way to approach this problem. They voted for change…I gave it to them.  I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic. 

 THE BOSS

Some Facts About Social Security…

Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn’t know this. It’s easy to check out, if you don’t believe it. Be sure and show it to your kids. They need a little history lesson on what’s what and it doesn’t matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are facts!!!

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. He promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be completely voluntary. No longer voluntary.

 2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual incomes into the program. Now it’s 7.65%.

 3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year. No longer tax deductible.

 4.) That the money the participants put into the independent ‘trust fund’ rather than into the general operating fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the social security retirement program, and no other government program. Under Lyndon Johnson the money was moved to the general fund and spent.

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income. Under Clinton & Gore up to 85% of your social security can be taxed.

 Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a social security check every month and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the federal government to ‘put away’ you may be interested in the following:

Q: Which political party took social security from the independent ‘Trust Fund’ and put it into the general fund so that  Congress could spend it? A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically controlled House and Senate.

Q: Which political party eliminated the income tax deduction for social security (FICA) withholding? A: The Democratic Party.

Q: Which political party started taxing social security annuities? A: The Democratic Party, wit h Al Gore casting the ‘tie-breaking’ deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US.

 Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants? A: That’s right! Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party. Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments! The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!

After all of these violations of the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away! And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it while CONGRESS GIVES THEMSELVES 100% RETIREMENT FOR ONLY SERVING ONE TERM!!! 

If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will evolve. Maybe not, some Democrats are awfully sure of what isn’t so. But it’s worth a try. How many people can YOU send this to? Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.

Now Go Call Your Senators…

Moses told the children of Israel , “Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land.” Nearly 75 yrs ago, Roosevelt said, “Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel; this is the “Promised Land.” Now Obama has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of Camels, and mortgaged the Promised Land. Now go call your Senators.

Bar Stool Economics 101

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:

The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
The fifth would pay $1.
The sixth would pay $3.
The seventh would pay $7.
The eighth would pay $12.
The ninth would pay $18.
The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.

So, that’s what they decided to do. The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve. ‘Since you are all such good customers, he said, ‘I’m going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20. Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the other six men – the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his ‘fair share?’ They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody’s share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.

And so:

The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings).
The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28%savings).
The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).
The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings).
The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).

Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.

‘I only got a dollar out of the $20,’declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man,’ but he got $10!’

‘Yeah, that’s right,’ exclaimed the fifth man. ‘I only saved a dollar, too. It’s unfair that he got ten times more than I!’

‘That’s true!!’ shouted the seventh man. ‘Why should he get $10 back when I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!’

‘Wait a minute,’ yelled the first four men in unison. ‘We didn’t get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!’

The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.

The next night the tenth man didn’t show up for drinks, so the nine sat down and had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn’t have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill!

And that, boys and girls, journalists and college professors, is how our tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

For those who understand, no explanation is needed.
For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.

3 Lumps of Coal in Our Stockings

Lump #1: HEALTH CARE REFORM SELL OUT BRIGADE

The following senators sold their votes for this healthcare crapheap for money and special deals. They should be charged with a crime. Getting money and concessions for their states costs the rest of us more money.

1. Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), sold her health care reform vote for $300 million.
2. Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) sold his vote for $100 million.
3. Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT.) sold his vote for $100 million.
4. Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) exempted his state’s insurance companies from a new $7 billion dollar tax.
5. Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) got a $10 billion grant for community health centers that could perform abortions.
6. Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) got an increase in Medicare payments to hospitals in his state.
7. Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) got money for his state’s health care system.
8. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) got concessions for insurance companies in his state.
9. Pennsylvania, New York and Florida got protections for their Medicare Advantage.
10. Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming got “FrontierFreebies” an increase in Medicare Payments to rural hospitals and doctors.
11. Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) said “I didn’t get the money for my state. I was too stupid.”

Here’s a great article with in-depth details on exactly who got what:

http://www.sodahead.com/united-states/if-health-care-reform-is-right-for-america-why-did-15-senators-need-bribes-who-exactly-got-what/blog-220861/

Please also note there’s language in the bill that binds future Congresses from changing it. See this write up for further details: http://blog.heritage.org/2009/12/23/beyond-the-constitution-the-healthcare-bill-violates-the-rule-of-law/?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=Morning%2BBell

 And, here’s one of the major Democrats pushing for the legislation, Max Baucus, apparently drunk on the Senate floor while debating it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5Y9X5ggxzA&feature=player_embedded

In the end, it sure seems clear to me that this bill has nothing to do with reforming healthcare (the left and the right are furious about it), and everything to do with putting an additional 1/6 of our economy under the control of the government (in addition to the financial services sector and auto manufacturing). Speaking of financial services, please see coal lump #2 below:

Lump #2: Surprise Gift from Tax Cheat Tim Geithner!

The Treasury announced Thursday it was removing the caps that limited the amount of available capital to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to $200 billion each.

Unlimited access to bailout funds through 2012 was “necessary for preserving the continued strength and stability of the mortgage market,” the Treasury said.

Fanny and Freddie have essentially been given a blank check. The new package that will also pay Fannie Chief Executive Officer Michael Williams and Freddie CEO Charles Haldeman Jr. as much as $6 million a year, including bonuses. Remember that “Wall Street Fat-Cat” remark Obama made in his scolding speeches about the greedy financial services sector? Clearly a bunch of baloney.

Lump # 3: International Police Operating in US Now Exempt From Our Laws

On 12.17, President Obama issued an executive order removing the Reagan limitations. That is, Interpol’s property and assets are no longer subject to search and confiscation, and its archives are now considered inviolable. This international police force (whose U.S. headquarters is in the Justice Department in Washington) will be unrestrained by the U.S. Constitution and American law while it operates in the United States and affects both Americans and American interests outside the United States.

Why would we elevate an international police force above American law? Why would we immunize an international police force from the limitations that constrain the FBI and other American law-enforcement agencies? Why is it suddenly necessary to have, within the Justice Department, a repository for stashing government files which, therefore, will be beyond the ability of Congress, American law-enforcement, the media, and the American people to scrutinize?

Remember, Obama has said in several speeches he wants a civilian national security force as large, and as well funded, as the military. I guess an international police force operating in America is close enough for him.

http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/executive-order-amending-executive-order-12425

So while the Obama’s decided once again to skip church services (for Christmas), take heart that “gift giving” is still an integral part of their holiday celebration.

One Last Thing…

While our elected employees are running around enacting legislation and executive orders that do more harm than good to we average citizens, please review the attached link to see how terrible they also are at protecting the homeland: http://blog.heritage.org/2009/12/28/morning-bell-the-system-failed/
