FIAF

Such an effen a$$hole. Issues a statement when a leftist movie reviewer dies, but nada when a true hero is murdered.

What is the point of an Easter Prayer Breakfast that is five days late? The Obama schedule for today – the COMPLETE schedule, following two days of fundraising:

9:15 am || Hosts and Easter Prayer Breakfast; East Room – WHD will provide live stream
10:30 am || Receives the Presidential Daily Briefing

And that’s it. I suppose they didn’t want to mention that he’ll spend the rest of the day preparing to watch basketball, and insuring that his golf clubs are properly cleaned and buffed for the weekend.

Tabacco taxes to pay for Universal pre-school?

*head assplodes*

Honestly? Two bad ideas, married together. And there’s “not one dime” included in the plan.

PREVIEW OF WHITE HOUSE BUDGET, out Wed., from a senior administration official: “The budget will detail how we can invest in the things we need to attract more jobs … , equip our people with the skills they need, and ensure that hard work leads to a decent living – without adding a dime to the deficit.

If I had a dime for every time a democrat said that in the last five years …

… The President has made clear that he is willing to compromise and do tough things to reduce the deficit, but only in the context of a package like this one that has balance and includes revenues from the wealthiest Americans and that is designed to promote economic growth. That means that the things like CPI that Republican Leaders have pushed hard for will only be accepted if Congressional Republicans are willing to do more on revenues. This isn’t about political horse trading; it’s about reducing the deficit in a balanced way that economists say is best for the economy and job creation.

This is the game they play. They say their offer is a compromise, and they are trying a balanced approach – when it is nothing of the sort. But they get every talking head to repeat those words, over and over,and VOILA. It’s a compromise, and isn’t Obama so reasonable?

Here is the thing that initially set me off:

NEW INVESTMENTS ARE FULLY OFFSET AND WON’T ADD TO DEFICIT — Expanded access to Pre-K, paid for by an increase in tobacco tax: [T]he budget includes a proposal the President laid out in the State of the Union that ensures four-year olds across the country have access to high-quality preschool education through a landmark new initiative in partnership with the states, and increases the availability of early learning … This proposal would give all our kids the best start early in life, and save hard-working families thousands each year in child care costs. …

Mostly lies. tabacco taxes will NOT pay for expanded pre-K (just think about it for a millisecond), and there is not such thing as federally provided “high-quality preschool education.” What we need is “high -quality” parenting.

The last bit is correct, and more accurate – we (the government, the taxpayers) are going to be paying for universal daycare.

This next one, though, I think is the most infuriating.

“Sets limits on tax-preferred retirement accounts for millionaires and billionaires: The budget will also show how we can provide targeted tax relief to strengthen the economy, help middle class families and small businesses and pay for it by eliminating tax loopholes and make the tax system more fair. The budget will include a new proposal that prohibits individuals from accumulating over $3 million in IRAs and other tax-preferred retirement accounts. Under current rules, some wealthy individuals are able to accumulate many millions of dollars in these accounts, substantially more than is needed to fund reasonable levels of retirement saving.

Over $3 million is more than is needed to fund “reasonable levels of retirement”? That’s one Obama vacation. That’s three weekends of golf for Obama. That’s a few hotel stays for Biden.

WHAT RIGHT? They tax are earnings and now they want to tax the money we save and invest.

WHAT RIGHT?

The budget would limit an individual’s total balance across tax-preferred accounts to an amount sufficient to finance an annuity of not more than $205,000 per year in retirement, or about $3 million in 2013.

You can only live on $205,000 a year. That’s all you need. Anything more is excessive. You don’t need it.

Obama needs it, of course.

Beware. Seriously, this is scary shit. Zuckerberg has a D.C. plan.

[a] prospectus lists three reasons why ‘people in tech’ can be organized into ‘one of the most powerful political forces.’ ‘1: We control massive distribution channels, both as companies and individuals. We saw the tip of the iceberg with SOPA/PIPA. 2: Our voice carries a lot of weight because we are broadly popular with Americans. 3. We have individuals with a lot of money. If deployed properly this can have huge influence in the current campaign finance environment.’ … ‘Several prominent leaders in the tech community, operating solely as individuals, continue to work on forming an issues advocacy organization that would seek to promote issues such as comprehensive immigration reform and education reform,’

They’re forming a 501(c) and they’re going to pretend to be a “grassroots effort” to influence politics under cover for leftie politicians. The roster of the group:

includes Netflix founder Reed Hastings, Twitter creator Jack Dorsey, LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman, Dropbox CEO Drew Houston, Zynga co-founder Mark Pincus and Instagram CEO Kevin

I’m DONE with these people.

Propaganda like we’ve never seen. It’s coming. It’s here.

Happy place

    Okay, so rich people are bad, and should serve only as a money sump, unless they are willing to buy into social engineering causes, in which case, having “individuals with a lot of money” is suddenly a good thing? Got it.

    And once again, we are being taxed to pay for the things the governmnt decides we need, whether we actually want it or not. Thank you oh benevolent overseers.


  2. Hello! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that
    might be able to resolve this problem. If you have any suggestions,
    please share. With thanks!

  3. Car in Says:

    Huh. My iphone always automatically shifts all wordpress sites into their mobile version. I can view original or mobile, but it defaults to mobile.


  4. Currently it sounds like WordPress is the best blogging platform out
    there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
