Communist Quote of the Day

The subversion of the Democrat Party by communists is effectively complete, as confirmed by congresscritter Joseph Crowley (D-NY):

“To be a millionaire in this country, it is the greatest country the world has known. It is a privilege. And I think most people get that. You work hard, you get ahead, make a living and you contribute back to this country and make it a better country.”

That is to say, you work hard not to achieve your own objectives, but so that the wealth you create can be confiscated by bureaurats like Crowley, who fundamentally transform this into a “better” country by vastly expanding the size and scope of the federal government. Whatever they refrain from stealing is a “privilege.”

Here’s something most Americans really do get, unless this country is already lost: our money belongs to us, not the parasites in Washington.

    Damnitall.

    It is a privilege to be a millionaire in America. Ever notice how many very wealthy people from other places come here – you know, because of our excellent infrastructure, rule of law, defense of intellectual property, and so on and so forth? How many is it? I’ll wait, if you want to Google it up…

    Now go the other way. How many Sheldon Adelsons, Foster Friess, Koch brothers, and the rest of their ilk are migrating to Estonia, or China, or literally any other country on Earth??? Yeah…. zero… that’s kinda what I thought…

    So… what have we learned? Being a millionaire in America is indeed the best place to be such. And paying your fair share is the cost of having America be what it is. You contribute back, and just maybe future generations will feel the same way our current crop of rich people feel.

    Do you really not get that, or are you just so helplessly inured to your political ideology that even the most obvious statements of fact cannot penetrate your Wall of Deliberate Ignorance? (I know what I am guessing… )

    Definition of PRIVILEGE
    : a right or immunity granted as a peculiar benefit, advantage, or favor : prerogative; especially : such a right or immunity attached specifically to a position or an office
    Being a millionaire is not granted to a person. The millionaire becomes a millionaire by leveraging effort, talent, and opportunity.
    If you are not a millionaire it is because you either were too dumb, too lazy, or simply were incompetent at what you do.
    Define fair share.
    Is it a percentage (if so what portion do poor people pay)? Is a dollar amount (same argument)? Is it to be in proportion to services usage (if so rich people still pay more)?
    Wall of Deliberate Ignorance Close description of liberals but Wall of Deliberate Stupidity is more accurate.

  • FrankW

    btw inured does not means what you think.
    transitive verb
    : to accustom to accept something undesirable
    intransitive verb
    : to become of advantage
    For your purpose attached would have been more correct.
    Dumbass. Defined as stupid donkey, pun intended.

    Silly me! And all along I thought being rich was a right, not a privilege.

    Not one of you has enough $ to actually be entitled to an opinion about any of this… guaranteed. I actually work 2 jobs, and am in the topmost tax bracket (the one I hope Obama is going to undo W’s disastrous tax cuts for). Because I understand that it is important to contribute to the solution, rather than whine about perceived problems.

    Which I mention just for the record. All you hicks forget that the ‘limousine liberal’ rich folk from the ‘big city’ are in fact… rich. especially compared to hillbilly dirt farmers and toothless jesus-freak gun nuts who have never left flyover country. Does that really not compute?

    Just sayin’.

  • Alwaysright

    I have enough $ to have an opinion about this . Being rich in America is not a right or a privilege. It is an accomplishment. I am also in a topmost tax bracket. Cmon, you arrogant jerk. Write a check.Nothing is stopping you from undoing W’s disastrous tax cuts. You understand how important it is to contribute to the solution….so do it, and stop railing about it. You are an uninformed idiot. You know nothing about the hardworking people in this country. I don’t want to contribute 1 cent more until the Gubmint workers quit partying on my dime and politicians quit pissing away my tax $ on Solyndra and the like. Does this compute? Just sayin’.

  • moonbat

    “Here’s something most Americans really do get, unless this country is already lost: our money belongs to us, not the parasites in Washington”.

    So why do you continue to vote???

    If voting changed anything they would make it a CRIME.

    cmon people,

    You want the Bush tax cuts undone? Tell us all how much of your MASSIVE paycheck do you send to the government? How much more of your money do you voluntarily donate to the treasury? Yeah, that’s what I thought!

    If you want to give more of your own money in taxes to the government, go right ahead. But stop trying to force the rest of us to do it!

    What the hell do you know about hard-earned success? How many 16 hour days have you pulled? How many times have you put everything you own on the line for the sake of growing a business?

  • Mr Evilwrench

    Hey, I may be a gun nut, but I’m not entirely toothless, and certainly not a Jesus freak. I’m living off investments now and I’m not even 50. I think I have more right to an opinion than some leftard schmuck that still has to work hard enough to get to the top bracket (as if). Doesn’t sound like a rich guy to me, especially when he wants the .gov to take more of it from him. Just send it in, dumbass, leave mine alone.

  • Ghost of FA Hayek

    Cmon
    So you work two jobs huh ?
    No capital gains tax ?
    Lucky you.
    No Employer FICA withholdings ?
    Lucky you again

    No FUTA ? ( fed unemployment )
    No SUTA ? (state unemployment)
    Various excise taxes ?
    Oh plus the same regular income rates you pay if there is anything left(remember, I get paid LAST)
    And what of the thousands it costs to prepare and file those mountains of forms

    With that attitude, the greater likelihood is that you are one of the millions who qualify for the earned income credit and are actually cut a check

    26 million filers took the refundable earned income tax credit, and they received $56 billion from the IRS despite having paid no income taxes.

    21 million filers took the refundable child credit, and they received $27 billion from the IRS despite having paid no income taxes.

    Have they paid their “fair share” ?

  • AC

    Don’t get me started on unemployment taxes. I’ve lost track of how much I’ve paid over the years in the event I should fire myself without cause – not that I could collect, anyway.

  • M.Wilson

    Progressives always complain about Bush’s tax cuts, but they completely ignore the context that they occurred in.

    The setting: 2001. The dot-com bubble has just popped, the Twin Towers have just fallen. America’s economy is staggering and showing signs of recession, and the press is crying out for the government to intervene (the only solution they believe in).

    In response, Bush coordinates with Congress to cut taxes across the board (not just for the rich) and to send some extra money towards the middle class, they add an extra tax credit that scales off the number of children you have. This means that people who have few kids (typically rich people) would not get much from the credit, and people who have many kids but don’t pay taxes (typically low-life mooches) won’t be able to squeeze even more out of Uncle Sugar.

    The result was that the 2001 recession was one of the shortest recessions in US history, and was quickly forgotten. The score: Tax cuts 1, Recession 0.

    While this was happening, however, someone else was taking action. Spurred by the panic in the press, the Federal Reserve ratchets down interest rates dramatically in order to “stimulate” the economy. By 2003 the interest rate had fallen below 1%. Cheap credit flowed, and debt spending in the private sector soared. However, with the war in Iraq picking up, coverage of markets and interest rates all but disappeared.

    In the media shadow cast by the war, banks pressured by racist left-wing interest groups make high-risk loans to poor minorities, presumably to counteract an appearance of discrimination created by disproportionately turning down loans of unqualified borrowers who happen to be a minority.

    Wary of how rapidly the interest rates were able to change, the banks moved to introduce Adjustable Rate Mortgages in order to hedge against the risk of future increases in the Federal rate putting them in the red on their own loans. Some less scrupulous banks moved to bundle the high-risk loans they had given out and sell them off to other banks under the guise of low-risk securities, which of course is blatant fraud. Predictably, this would come back to bite them a few years down the road.

    In 2004, market analysts begin noticing a new bubble forming, fueled by the vast influx of cheap credit: the housing bubble. Coverage of it started slow with the war still hot off the presses, but the gears in the Federal Reserve had already started turning, and the Federal Interest Rate began to rise in hopes of taming the rising bubble.

    As the Federal rate rose, so too did the rates on the high-risk Adjustable Mortgages. Before long, these poor, under-qualified borrowers found themselves increasingly unable to keep up with their rising minimum payments, which by law must stay ahead of their interest. One by one, they began to default as the banks’ fears came true.

    By 2006, the interest rate had risen to 5.25% and the defaulting loans had begun to snowball. As the sub-prime loans of the less scrupulous banks collapsed, other unsuspecting banks and investors found their supposedly low-risk securities plummeting in value. The situation rapidly spirals out of control, breaking several major banks and leading to the Bailout.

    The economy now spiraled into recession even worse than before, and to top it off the Government had already played all its cards on the last recession. Any further manipulation of the interest rate would only destabilize banks further, taxes were as low as they were willing for them to go, and spending was maxed out. However, under massive pressure to do something, anything, to “fix” the economy, the Government undertook massive deficit spending under the Stimulus plan. But the Stimulus money was largely wasted on graft and corruption, paying off political cronies and fraudsters, and did nothing to help the sagging economy.

    And here we are today.

    The problem is that the goal of the federal government is to turn us all into dependents. Once accompished, they will have absolute control over us. This wont’tchange by simply replacing Obama with Romney. Some blood must be spilled.

    “Being a millionaire in America is indeed the best place to be such. And paying your fair share is the cost of having America be what it is.”

    Being poor in America is also the best place “to be such”. Once the Bottom 47% start paying THEIR fair share, I’ll be somewhat more likely to take your mewed pissings seriously.

    “Because I understand that it is important to contribute to the solution, rather than whine about perceived problems.”

    Which is why you donate so much to private charities, understanding that they’re much more efficient than government efforts (which are notorious for their absurd amounts of overhead).

    You DO contribute heavily to charity, right? And since you believe so strongly about your “responsibilities” as one of the wealthy elite, you don’t even mention them on your tax returns, much less take deductions, right?

    Or are you just blowing smoke, like most of the leftist arrogantsia?

    “The subversion of the Democrat Party by communists is effectively complete…”

    CAn you imagine how little you have to pay attention to policy / how stupid you have to be to say this? It is mind boggling when you look at the Dem party’s liasons with big business (just as bad as the repubs) and then take that away.

    It’s like you have to have your head literally in your own ass. Ignorance is bliss I guess…
