Liberals think Mickelson doesn’t really deserve his money because he won “life’s golf lottery”

In Liberal theology telling the truth is a sin; acknowledging that success comes from hard work and not “winning life’s lottery” is a bigger sin. But being wealthy White and committing these sins makes them still bigger and clearly unforgivable.

When professional golfer Phil Mickelson complained about his taxes being too high he committed the Liberal sin of telling the truth. Their selectively applied “speaking truth to power” slogan aside, Liberals become furious at people who tell the emperor he is naked.

When Mickelson said he was tired of paying an aggregate tax of 63% after all of the bites taken from his check, that was a sin, but it got worse: he added that since California’s taxes are so high he was thinking about leaving “The Golden State.”

Publicly acknowledging that he was even thinking about escaping the clutches of a Liberal “Taxula” state sent the Liberals into a foaming at the mouth rage.

They mocked Mickelson as an ungrateful greedy comrade. What did he have to be grateful for? Liberals, apparently think Mickelson is greedy because they KNOW he doesn’t deserve what he is paid.

Even Liberal sports writers, the self -appointed guardians of Liberal orthodoxy, who might be expected to know better, act as if Mickelson was once struck on the head by a sliced ball, knocked out and awoke with a “Roy Hobbs-like” ability to play golf. They don’t want to accept that he worked for the superior skills he has.

To these people it is intolerable that a White man like “Comrade” Mickelson should complain about the privilege of paying Mother State a mere 63% of what he collects for having been in the right place at the right time and winning “life’s golf lottery.” …..

1/4 black = pass
Soros offshore accounts
Apple uses a Nevada entity as a holding company
Pelosi has blind trusts offshore
DiFi sells to the Chinese
Kerry moves his boat to RI and still misses tax payments
Rangel, Nagin, Geithner, Clinton’s, Blago, Menendez, Biden
Mad off, Stanford, Immelt

No consequences, they are Liberals, only white conservatives like Phil and Mitt are demonized

Liberals won the lottery when Obama’s presidency was bought by sorros. They do not deserve the winnings as they were taken by immoral and illegal means.

I posted this yesterday on a different Phil Mickelson thread:

I was listening to a Sports Radio station here in Washington State (which is a no income tax state also) and the DJ was ripping Phil Mickelson a brand new one because he said it was “unbecoming” of an athlete to whine about money when they are making so much. The DJ said “rule #1” a sports agent would tell their clients is to not talk about money. I think I agree with that sentiment a little bit but I think this brain dead leftist DJ was missing the bigger argument. It isn’t HOW MUCH he makes but HOW MUCH was being confiscated.

I was PISSED that this obviously leftist Sports Radio guy wanted to rip into Mickelson about discussing what NEEDS to be out in the open which is the confiscatory rates these athletes are subject to. I don’t think this DJ likes Mickelson in the first place but it made it painfully obvious to me what we are up against.

Class warfare plain and simple. It is not allowable for for someone that wants to keep what they earn to talk about the method in which their earnings are confiscated. But is is OK to talk about how evil these rich people are in how they should give up more of their earnings.

I’m sure the “low information” people listening to this radio show were probably cheering the DJ on...”YAH, that guy still has more money that I’ll make in a lifetime”. This DJ was only perpetuating the problem IMNSHO.

Tiger is half-black.

But , Lets put that aside.

When the Federal Government gets a hard on for the rich, they forget that the rich already pay most of the taxes,
They forget that the State thinks they should get an opportunity to rob the rich too, then the State forgets that the County wants a piece of the action, then they all forget that we have sales taxes, business licenses , an expensive liquor license for some,car registrations all on the way up. Then they start charging us for using public land and facilities.

Then they forget again that the rich pass these taxes on to us poor folks ,humpoing our asses off to break even while the lazy turds in this country who refuse to work are living as good or better than those of us that are working.And they are doing it with the money we pay in to taxes.

I actually had a man I know who is on unemployment tell me that he would not work for less than $100,000 dollars a year.

I have had enough, but there is nowhere to go. I can’t afford to move, all I can do is cry to politicians who are screwing me worse and worse every day, and telling me they aren’t. Shoving more debt up my butt ad inviting millions more who don’t even belong here to come and enjoy whjat I have to help pay for. Then trying to steal my protection by taking my guns.

Man-——unbelievable. and half the country cvoted for this sh*t.

Liberals think Mickelson doesn’t really deserve his money because he won “life’s golf lottery” ?

An accurate title would be:

Liberals think Mickelson doesn’t really deserve his money because he “has more money than they do”

It’s funny you mentioned Sports Radio. I always tune into liberal talk radio on the weekends to see what they have to say about the latest issues we hear about all week long. This weekend I learned that both progressive stations coming out of Seattle have dropped the liberal trash talkers and turned to all sports all day.

Hmmm...Did and all those basketball players win life’s ‘basketball lottery’??

Really?

American public opinion is becoming more and more infantile all the time....that’s bad enough.. but the MSM is going right along with it.

All IDIOTS!!!

Doesn’t Al Gore still reside in Tennessee, a no state income tax state? And he didn’t make his millions by hard work.

Dumbass liberals.

John Rawls in A Theory of Justice maintains that it is perfectly just for society to sacrifice the men of intelligence and creative ability-to seize their products and redistribute them to the world's losers and parasites-because nobody worked to achieve his own gray matter and nobody earned his brain, which is a mere lucky gift from nature.

Libtards with the above mentality drop the context of how men, who were born with better than average golfing ability or intelligence, still have to choose develop their potential and to work hard to succeed. These people deserve what they have earned.The alternative would be for them to stagnate and live as parasites off of the efforts of others.

While watching last week's golf tournament, the announcer mentioned Mickelson's comments. I overheard someone say “the nerve of that guy to say that. Why shouldn't he give some money back to the government, he's got plenty.”

I was not in a situation where I could respond. It was all I could do to bite my tongue.

On the same day tha Mickelson started getting slammed. Tina Turner very quietly turned in her US passport to become a Swiss (bank account) citizen. She is worth $200 million.

and Ike is still dead!

Mickelson made the unforgivable mistake of talking about relocating for tax reasons before he actually did it. Dumb move — that just makes you a target.

Next athlete, entertainer, or anyone else with a generally mobile lifestyle and a large income who wants to make a tax flight: move FIRST, then talk about it.

Every time Phil shows up at the course, he plays the 1st 11 holes to pay the government. He doesn’t start putting any money in his own pocket until he is in the tee box on 12!

Re Tiger, he kept his mouth shut.

Re Phil: Liberals think Mickelson doesn’t really deserve his money because he won “life’s golf lottery”

Should read: Liberals seek money they didn’t earn by stealing it from others.
