Stolen fair and square from the Capt. Courtesey himself.I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.
Buffet has an ulterior motive for his involvement in the propaganda.
This is theft of private property plain and simple, and unconstitutional.
However, that matters little to progressives right?
And then there is this interview....As a kind of bailout for bankrupt union retirement schemes, Democrats are considering yet another Constitution-trampling government takeover, this time, of private 401k retirement accounts.
The idea would be to create yet another entitlement program through which government would dictate the terms of everyone's retirement--while making it so difficult and costly to have a private 401k that everyone is forced into it.
Under Obama, the federal government has now illegally taken over the auto industry, the banks, housing, health care, student loans...and coming soon, apparently even private retirement accounts.
But don't worry. It's not like history is jam-packed full of warnings against continuously surrendering freedoms and nationalizing all power into the hands of the few.

It's not going to be on the up and up people.....This much like the Obamacare bill will be forced against the will of the people in the darkness of night.
One of my brothers is a factory worker who makes between $50-$60K a year. He said that several people he knew who worked there awhile had 401k's well over a million dollars because they put a lot into what were previously high risk high return funds that were investing in factories being built in China and other places in Asia 10-15 years ago. I'd say they are safe investments now. It is ironic, however, that the dems are targeting them under the auspice they got rich off the backs of poor American workers when they are the poor downtrodden workers supposedly being defended against the capitalist swarm.
The last thing you will hear is Nancy Pelosi saying we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
OMG the republ;ican BS fear factory is at it again. We must stop the black president from raising taxes on the rich white people who do not even care about 99 percent of other white people as long as they don't pay taxes. Anyway, why is this fear unfounded for most of us?
Average income for full time employed people in the US is 39k (less for the 50 percent of us with a vagina). So this is not even a concern for most of us considering the lowest number they gave for having this tax is in the 48 thousand range. Now before the reps start saying average means over 50 percent of us might have trouble with this you need to understand the mathmatics of avergae, and if you are about to claim something like that you are not smart enough to be in this conversation. The reality is that most full time working americans fall below the average due to the rather large disparity between top incomes and the lowest incomes. So this is not a concern for most americans. For those of you who take the standard deduction and do not itemize this is not even a concern for you as you are already paying enough.
Who is this going to effect? People who make a lot of money and end up with huge deductions and pay little to no taxes. AKA the way more rich than you are. They want you to be afraid because the fiscal cliff is going to really hurt them. They want you to be as afraid as they are because their cliff is bigger than your small slope. So they grabbed a term only they are familiar with and are now shaking it in front of you claiming you will be horribly destroyed if you don't call up your senator in a panic and have a meltdown like they are. However, if you are actually worried do yourself a favor. Find your house reps contact info and anyone with an R next to their name call them up and tell them to quit screwing around and dump norquist and his insanity like the rest of the reps who want to be elected next term. If we get the budget there is no fiscal cliff to worry about and this doesn't mean a thing. Oh, and before the republicans bitch it is the job of congress to pass a budget. It is not their job to pitch another hissy fit because the black guy is still president. get on their ass and tell them to do their job or your state will find a person who can.
You republicans are really getting desperate. obama beat your ass and now has your people by the short and curleys. it is time to raise taxes on the rich. Most people do not know what AMT is because they never need to worry about it. They pay their share of taxes already. they don't have huge deductions they abuse. They don't write off millions of dollars in taxes like the rich do. What is worse is that most of you republicans are poor or lower middle class anyway. You are not rich. This will never apply to you because you will never be rich even with all the opportunities in america. Your money is yours. the black man is not going to redistribute it, and if he actually did redistribute you would get the money because you are not even close to being above that line.
So calm down, stop panicking, and relax. They will handle this before the cliff because it is their cliff. Why they set it up for themselves i will never understand, but they did. They will cave in because it is their loss and not ours. The people who are going to be hammered by this cliff are the rich. this is why the rich people in congress will never let it actually happen because they have so much to lose by this. It is their money, and they own all the big stuff in america. They won't sink it because they like their stuff. They are holding their stuff hostage. This is a bit of comedy done in blazing saddles where the sherrif holds himself hostage with his own gun and all the ignorant townspeople fall for it while the audience of intelligent people laughs. Only this time it is real life and house reps are holding themselves hostage and most of us are going shoot, we dare you.
I may be wrong.
