Classic - Biden stumps for income redistribution
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, September 18, 2008

Joe Biden cracks the door on the ideology which drives the Democrat ticket:
"We want to take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people," Biden said in an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America."

Noting that wealthier Americans would indeed pay more, Biden said: "It's time to be patriotic ... time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut."
Time to put your money in someone else's pocket.

It's the "patriotic" thing for your rich folks to do, according to "Mr. Charity". This is the "OPiuM" Palin talked about - the addiction to "Other People's Money". And here's Joe Biden, right on cue, telling others that their priority ought to be paying for the mess he and his cohorts have managed to get us into - "time to get America out of the Biden rut".

Who is it that has spent us into a 5 trillion dollar deficit? Not rich people. Nope - Senators who've been there for 36 years, that's who.

Would someone please pass along to this knucklehead that the patriotic thing for Congress to do is to dramatically cut spending?!

Has anyone seen any mention of that?

"We want to take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people,"
Put it ’back’ in the pockets of middle class people? How are they going to do that? Are they going to be honest and just raise my taxes and just turn around and send a check out to Joe Middleclass?

And don’t get me started on ’take’...

And don’t get me started on Biden and Obama’s definition of "middle class" and "rich."

People would react more strongly to this governmental moneygrab if they could more readily see money removed from their pockets. Having money confiscated from your paycheck before it gets to you just makes it way too easy for people to become inured to this theft.

If he can’t get rich after 36 years as a Senator he is way too dumb to be trusted with any real responsibility.

I see he doesn’t figure giving that money to charity is all that patriotic. Despite his huge income, he gives very little indeed. I guess that’s the kind of nonsense you’d expect from someone who has raised taxes every time he had the chance. So has Obama. It’s quite clear, folks that the Democrats as is usual, have given us a very anti-private sector ticket. We’re dealing with people whose sensibilties are drawn directly from Das Kapital. Mark this well, folks, these people think America is great not because of it’s freedoms, but because of it’s government. That’s exactly why this financial meltdown is being blamed not on the government actions that caused it, but on the free enterprise- free market model.

"We want to take money..."
At this point in American history and knowing what we know of this idea and what’s it’s wrought in objective fact — nevermind all the theory that’s never really popular in dealing with this and projecting what it actually means in reality before we get to that reality — every thinking person would take Joe Biden at his words and rack a round into their battle rifle.

No compromise, no discussion.

That’s exactly how summarily this should be dismissed. That man just told you exactly what he’s about, and he should be taken just that seriously.

Taxes are not patriotic; taxes are bad. Taxation is the the way the government takes money that people have earned. Unfortunately, over half the budget is required by law.

Well, when 40% of the population pays no income taxes, why would they not just vote themselves more free sh!t? This is how they fire their base up. More free money will get them out to the polls.

And while he’s talking about patriotically increasing taxes, Obama is busy assuring people HE is going to lower them.

Hello? Hello? Are you two guys on the same ticket or what?

They’re going to buy everyone an "I drink your milkshake" T-shirt.

Media response? "meh - no inconsistencies here!"

They won’t insist that the money they take be used for spending required by the Constitution. They spend our money on things that they feel good about. They are so honest and above board about this that they won’t even attach their names to their earmarks.

They are corrupt pigs, and it’s time to vote them all out.

Problem for Chuck. People who don’t pay income taxes won’t get behind a fair tax. Why vote away their free cheese?

well, bend over and be prepared for the reaming, because after the current economic crises I don’t see any way McCain can win, unless it is by playing up the ties Obama has to Freddie and Fanny.

Chances are the any fence sitters who have seen their investments tumble are likely to blame the party in power. And not without reason.

What they are talking about out of both sides of their mouths with a
forked tongue is enslavement to the federal government. Serfs, peasants,
Dumbing down the majority of the population was the first step, kind of like
boiling crabs, you start out slowly. Now they’re prime for the relocation
to their new permanent homes, the plantations.
The civil war was never over, just expanded.

Like the Dems did with McCain - putting up part of his quote and then cutting off the rest of what he had to say and questioning his fitness to be President - McCain should have an ad up with Biden saying "taxation is patriotic" and then, in big letters, ask, "Why would the Obama-Biden ticket promise to raise taxes in a slowed economy? Why don’t they care about the American people?"

Let that run night and day for a few days and watch the Dems squirm.

Here’s a great one I just picked up off Drudge...
In Las Vegas, Obama targeted his message to Hispanic and African-American voters. He promised to reform the health care system, create a teacher corps, reform bankruptcy laws and clean up the mortgage business.

"I will crack down on predatory lenders — who all too often target the African-American community, target the Hispanic community — with tough new penalties that treat mortgage fraud like the crime that it is," he said.
You got that? The banks are the bad guys... going after and just FORCING the poor, poor, African-Americans to take mortgages they can’t afford... I’m telling you, they were out there FORCING them in to sign these mortgage agreements, and then FORCING them to not take the 72 hour clause. I’m telling you....

I hope he goes after predatory college admissions boards and HR departments too, targeting the African American and Hispanic communities as they do.
