Posted on 01/06/2013 4:23:49 PM PST by Reagan is King
Sometimes, watching a Democrat learn something is wonderful, like seeing the family dog finally sit and stay at your command.
With President Obama back in office and his life-saving fiscal cliff bill jammed through Congress, the new year has brought a surprising turn of events for his sycophantic supporters.
What happened that my Social Security withholdings in my paycheck just went up? a poster wrote on the liberal site DemocraticUnderground.com. My paycheck just went down by an amount that I dont feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease is gonna hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over 400 grand. What happened?
Shocker. Democrats who supported the presidents re-election just had NO idea that his steadfast pledge to raise taxes meant that he was really going to raise taxes. They thought he planned to just hit those filthy 1 percenters, you know, the ones who earned fortunes through their inventiveness and hard work. They thought the free ride would continue forever.

WELCOME to reality folks!
Doncha realizin dat you is da rich! Sit back and have a laugh! These idiots are truly one sandwich short of a picnic
The libs are in for a rude awakening. This is just the first week. 2013 is going to be the year of big tax increases. Everyone is going to get nailed, not just “the rich”. That “the rich” thing was just a smoke screen used by the left to fake out and fool their useful idiots.
All liberals believe, deep in the hearts of what passes for their hearts, that all those rules, all those regulations, all those morals, and all those taxes should only apply to someone else.
LMAO,poor babies hate to see a few of their own dollars taken away.
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! Wake up call in isle 6!
and in spite of this the majority of them will still vote as they do ... look at California.
And, idiot obama supporters have yet to figure out what “investment” means when the word is used by a democrat.
I work for a small manufacturing firm in Texas. About 100 shop employees. This August will be the annual ad/drop for insurance. This year the owner is not offering health insurance. They ave been very generous for years, and have absorbed price increases over the last 6 years. This year its going to hit home. A lot of the employees are obummer idiots, they are starting to get the message and are crying already.
Useful idiots are no longer useful or needed.
Those that don’t have pay checks will see it when prices rise and their welfare and food stamp benefits don’t go as far. Of course, that’ll be the fault of the productive. Everything else is.
I am a major share holder in a “S” corporation. I started if in 1972 and have never had a yearly loss. I always took the “profits” and left them in the company (after taxes were paid on the earnings) and now myself and my three partners have decided to take “distributions”. Tax already paid.....
We are moving to a very low pay scale and instead of paying rather high taxes on our normal payroll we will take just enough pay out to pay for medical, SSI. and other state and local “Overhead” and ride “o’s” train out of the station till it stops. While the profits replenish for our “families families will be replenished over the next generation.
I am the youngest of eight, military.’66-68. Still suffering from the after effects of the “F’n” jungles.
Paid my dues.......
Sorta like being called “special” all your life and finally realizing what they rally meant by “special”.
They’ll soon find that their hard-earned EBT dollars don’t buy as many Skittles and Arizona Teas as they used to
Virtually no one has any experience with $5,000 an hour jobs ~ maybe they might win a lottery ticket sometimes, or sell a house and end up with $50,000 or something, but for the most part they don't.
So what is it that the folks who make $5,000 per hour and above are doing?
Well, some are clipping coupons (regular interest payments on bonds purchased by then, or their ancestors) ~ hardly difficult work, but it's possible to look at this semi-skilled practice as work ~ but for $5,000 an hour? Probably not ~ but then we have lawyers who win big cases for rich clients. There are arguments the lawyer's arguments actually enhanced the client's wealth ~ but seriously, I've known a lot of lawyers and never seen any of them really work at it ~ so what is it if hard work isn't really doing a song and dance for a judge?
I think the writer's reference to 'inventiveness' ~ which has a good number of synonymns, is probably more like it. They didn't get the big bucks for working hard, they got them for being clever. An hourly wage guy who does unskilled labor probably has a hard time understanding that and might well misinterpret it as THEFT! Someone with more education probably understands that the big bucks go to the smart guys, although there are those who imagine the rich guys got their money simply by being in the right place at the right time ~ rather like a lottery winning.
I know rich people who actually think that ~ that they got there by being lucky. At the other end of the thought spectrum some of them imagine they got the big bucks because they deserve it over and above anybody else. I'm sure the mob guys think that way ~ fur shur the Presidential appointees do.
I didn’t agree with that tax cut (over others that could have been) But I ALWAYS knew there was a two years expiration date. These people must have been voting with their ‘lady’ parts. Such tools.
Lenin had such a keen insight of progressives .... he immediately created a special term for them .... “useful idiots”.
