Posted on 11/09/2012 11:08:01 AM PST by tsowellfan

A newly energized President Barack Obama told the public in his first address since Tuesday’s election that he was doubling down on his ultimatum to block any fiscal reform proposal that did not raise taxes on top-earning Americans.

With Congress poised to tumble off a fiscal cliff composed of sequester budget cuts and expiring tax breaks on the first of next year, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has taken a conciliatory tone, saying House Republicans would work under the president’s leadership to find compromise...

Fair share? 50% already don’t pay income taxes and over 50% get gov’t subsidies.

My 401K gets surrendered before December 31. Cash disposition to be determined, but it won’t be any place he can get hold of it.

I’m gonna work just enough part-time to pay bills, collect my early SS, and minimize whatever taxes I have. Buy nothing, hold nothing that can be seized easily.

My hip’s been hurting me and I think I’m gonna need SSDI...have to hold out some cash for that Daytime SSDI lawyer. Hell, if I minimize income enough, I might qualify for food stamps!

I’ve been on a British “Shameless” marathon on Netflix for the last three days, and I must say they don’t seem to be doing too bad.

Not to worry. The cliff dweller and the cave man will fix it.

“Pay Fair share” = not an actual number- just pay whatever bills we(in DC) run up in order to buy votes.......

Dumbass would raise more revenue if he taxed the 47% that don’t pay their fair share of income tax.

I doubt that the GOP will do anything helpful here. What we need to do is find out the names, photos, addresses and any private information of IRS agents, EPA agents, Leftist msm personalities etc. and publicize them.
The government wants all sorts of personal information on conservatives, so we need to do the same to government officials and their syncophants.

Perhaps Conservatives should let Obama have his way...and let him own the results.

If Obama raises taxes, the already sputtering economy will shut down in a matter of weeks, not months.

I suggest that Atlas should shrug, go get his EBT card, Obamaphone, and free condoms then he should head out to Colorado where he can smoke a joint while waiting in line to get Obamacare doctors to approve his application for SSI because of his depression, after that he should head off to Washington state where he can marry his life partner Hercules and together they can raise their eugenically created daughter Julia as she dedicates her life to following the path that government has designed for her......

Hey you need to stop reading this and get your sorry butt back to work, I want more free stuff.

“Know your enemy and know yourself, and in one hundred battles, you will never be defeated.”

What motivates our enemies, the Democrats? What do their voting blocks want? What EMOTIONS motivate them? And never confuse the Democrat leadership with the mass of Democrat voters. The Democrat leaders are just grifters. Show me one Democrat leader who isn’t a grifter. We know what motivates them. We have to separate the Democrat voters from their grifter leadership. So, what emotions motivate the various blocks of Democrat voters? We have to understand them before we can beat them.

“If you do not know yourself or your enemy, you will always be beaten.”

The politics of envy, at the end of which the poor won’t be richer — they will be poorer. The US has the richest poor in the world and that’s not because of welfare.
