Barack Obama: The Tax Man

February 11, 2008

Barack Obama and Jesse JacksonThere’s no doubt that if the Democrat party takes the White House and Congress in the coming election, that the old days of soak the rich and tax and spend will return with an unhinged fury.  This is especially the case if hope-monger Barry Obama gets the nod.  Over at The Corner, Larry Kudlow provides the numbers that will keep you up at night and wreck our economy.

The Wall Street Journal’s Steve Moore says Obama’s tax plan would add up to a 39.6 percent personal income tax, a 52.2 percent combined income and payroll tax, a 28 percent capital-gains tax, a 39.6 percent dividends tax, and a 55 percent estate tax. In other words, Sen. Obama is a very-high-tax candidate.

Yikes!  And if Barack Obama does indeed run against our presumptive nominee, John McCain, you can be nearly sure Obambi wins unless people begin to see through his empty rhetoric.  Barry talks a lot about “change,” but clearly after he’s done with his Sheriff of Nottingham act, change will be all that’s left in your pocket.

When it comes down to a battle between Clinton and Obama, I’m rooting for injuries.  The next four years following the 2008 election could very well be the end of America as we know it.  I wish I had some advice to give, but I’m afraid the future is looking rather bleak.  With Democrats in control of three branches of government, the end cannot be far off.

Pray for America.

The Iowa Caucus Results

January 3, 2008

Iowa CaucusJust a quick post, which I will update in a bit, maybe.

I was right.

  1. Huckabee 34%
  2. Romney 25%
  3. McCain 13%
  4. Thompson 13%

And I may still be right about the party of treason:

  1. Obama 38%
  2. Clinton 29%
  3. Edwards 30%

Although Clinton and Edwards are still locked in mortal combat for second place.

Chris Dodd (DemocRAT) will drop out of the race.

Chuck Norris is a happy man tonight.

It’s been a good night for America. G-d bless Iowa. G-d bless you all.

Update: It looks like Fred Thompson may have moseyed his way into third place at the last minute. Congratulations to grandpa Fred.

Update 2: Ha ha – Kookspinach and Gravel got 0 votes! Dodd got 1, Biden got 23, Richardson got 51. Note to Kookspinach and Gravel: give it up. It’s over. Ron Paul at 10% gets 5th. Buh bye, Ronnie. It’s downhill from here. Ghouliani got a whopping 4%. So much for your winning strategy, Rudy.

Update 3: Joe Biden to drop out as well after an anemic performance. Please drop out too, Rudy Giuliani.

Update 4: Further predictions: Hunter won’t stick it out much longer, although he might well be on the short list for Secretary of Defense.  Cox will keep up his silent running candidacy, but nobody will notice.  Those who do will laugh.  Paul will stick it out to the bitter end, taking home lots of suckers’ money just like the last time he ran.  Thankfully he hasn’t got a prayer.  Let me know if I’ve missed anything.
