Move On has a misleading post at its website that comes from Socialist Bernie Sanders and it is a list of the top ten companies that paid no taxes last year. I do not know if the companies paid taxes but if they did not then they worked within the tax guidelines set into law by Congress, of which Sanders is a member. If they paid no taxes because of the tax laws then this happened because of Sanders and the rest of the people in Congress who have given us a cumbersome and unfair tax system.
The misleading part comes in the introduction where Move On starts by indicating; “Come April 15, everybody ponies up their fair share, right?”
This is patently false but is designed to turn people against the big evil companies that paid no taxes. The lie comes in the question about everyone ponying up their fair share. The reality is that not everyone ponies up a fair share. The bottom 50% of taxpayers pay 3% of the taxes and most of the folks in the bottom 50% not only don’t pay taxes but, because of tax credits, they get money back. That is correct, they get all that they paid in during the year AND THEN SOME. If Sanders is looking for freeloaders then why does he not start with the millions of Americans who not only pay no taxes but get more back then they ever paid in? Why does he not worry about the billions of dollars we are losing 1) because people are not paying any taxes and 2) because taxpayer money is being redistributed to them rather than going to pay our bills?
While Sanders cries about corporations that paid no taxes (and the truth to that is yet to be seen) 45% of households paid NO income taxes in 2010. How can he be looking for freeloaders without looking at that 45%?
The wealthy in this country pay most of the taxes and though they have paid less in recent years everyone has paid less. That is, those who actually pay taxes have paid less. Those who pay no taxes actually make out in the deal because our government has made the IRS a big government wealth redistribution center where those who pay taxes send it to the government where the IRS takes it and redistributes it to those who paid nothing giving them a net increase.
If people like Sanders are concerned about the tax situation in this country then why don’t they sit down and make a serious effort to fix it so that it is fair and equitable to all and so that everyone pays a fair share?
The tax breaks for companies can be removed and the corporate tax rate reduced. The IRS can be eliminated by having a flat tax of 11% across the board for every person who earns income. MAKE EVERYONE PAY.
This would have to come with a rule forbidding Congress from raising the rates unless 75% of the House and Senate voted on it. While we are at it we could get a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution to force Congress to live within its means.
There are plenty of things that can be done to fix the broken system and set us on the path to prosperity.
One thing that is of no help is for people like Socialist Sanders to cry about companies not paying their fair share when they follow the rules people like Sanders implemented all the while ignoring the nearly 50% of workers who not only pay no taxes but get someone else’s money to boot.
The class warfare crap is no longer going to work. We will not sit around and listen to members of Congress whine about people who follow the very rules that Congress laid out.
Make it fair for everyone because the workers who pay taxes are tired of people piling on for our money while Congress pecks at our wallets like buzzards on roadkill.

John Conyers met with the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) to discuss one world order. In the meeting Conyers says that it is his job and the job of the DSA to push Obama to their agenda and specifically says it is his job to get Obama reelected:
“I see that us making him more cooperative with our plans is going to strengthen him and not weaken him,” Conyers says to applause from the DSA activists.
“Whose job do you think it is to get him straightened out and get him on the right track? Ours! Ours!” Conyers exclaimed to more applause.
Promoting the concept of a one-world government, Conyers told those assembled, “We know that when unions, political ideology, clergy, labor, civil rights come together and just people who are progressive enough to see in this one-world concept that we’re all in this together, it makes certain things pretty easy to understand where we are coming from.” WND
There is video of his appearance at the linked article.
This should surprise no one as Conyers has a long history with the DSA. The people of Michigan owe it to the country to bounce this Socialist moron.

Barack Obama is out trying to whip his base into a frenzy so they will come out in November and vote. He is trying everything because he knows that he and his party are in real trouble. Obama is out lying about the Republican party and telling us that they want to go back to the policies of the last eight years, the ones that got us in trouble. This trouble has been brewing for longer than eight years and Democrats were in charge for most of the time the trouble brewed though both parties share the blame.
Regardless, Obama has already shown he will say anything to get what he wants. He has been caught saying different things at different times depending on who he is trying to appeal to. He is a con man, we are the mark and the sting is on the way.
Unless we can stop him by taking away his majority.
The funny thing is, Obama has to pump up his base after they came out in huge numbers (most of them being legal voters) in 2008. They are so displeased with him and what he has done that they are apathetic. They just do not care so Obama is out trying to get them to stay the course. He is telling his base that things take time so they need to be patient. He told them that it took time to end slavery and that the slaves patiently waited for it to end.
I fail to see a valid comparison here. The end of slavery came as a result of the Civil War, a war that was waged over state’s rights and which cost over 600,000 lives. The Obama Agenda is a war being waged over the rights of individuals and it has cost over 7 million jobs.
In the past 18 months Barack Obama has enslaved us to government. He has taken over auto companies, taken over health care, taken over the financial sector and he is trying to take over the very air we breathe by taxing the air we exhale.
The Obama base might not be happy that he has not done as much as he said and Massa Obama might like to tell them that ending slavery took a long time but the reality is it only took 18 months to make us all slaves.
If we do not stop this Socialist from fulfilling his agenda we will have even more trouble in this country.
It took 600,000 lives to end slavery the first time. How many will it take this time?

Ignoring the Kos polls that Kos admitted were manipulated to give him the results he was looking for, we can start looking at the polls for the upcoming elections. The Kos polls were over the top but not too terribly far off from many MSM backed polls of the past few years. The pollsters typically find ways to skew results to make things more positive for Democrats because controlling the message is important to the Socialists and Marxists in government and their sock puppets in the media. The pollsters can swing public opinion by skewing polls.
So when polls conducted by Democrat supporters start to show things are bad, they are.
A poll done by James Carville’s firm shows the Republicans up by 6% in the generic ballot (48%-42%). This is the generic ballot. The local races are beginning to look bad for some long time Democrats. Boxer, Reid and Feingold are in trouble in the polls and could very well end up unemployed after November.
Another interesting thing from the same Carville poll is that 55% of respondents said that Socialist was an accurate way to describe Barack Hussein Obama.
And Obama is losing his appeal. Not long ago he was filling venues with his lofty talk of hope and change and how he would do this or that and people swooned over him, fainted, screamed and followed just to touch his robes. Now his presence cannot fill a venue one tenth the size he has in the past and prices have to be reduced to induce people to attend.
From Yes We Can to Oh No You Didn’t in a year and a half…

Remember when the National Day of Prayer was, back in the spring? Do you remember how Hussein observed it? Do you?
He ignored the day- unlike his predecessor, President Bush, Hussein just totally ignored a nation’s religious heritage, which is mainly Christian and Jewish, and went on down the road, figuratively speaking. Okayyyyyyy—— not the smartest move, but then, unlike others, (mainly left- wing loons) I have never said that this guy was smart- indeed, I have said repeatedly that I thought he was dumber than a bag of hammers.
He proved it again the other day, at the start of Ramadan, when he “spoke” to the arab world to wish them well and extend “blessings”-
It’s even translated into several languages.
From the White House blog:
President Obama extends his best wishes to Muslims around the world during Ramadan. (public domain)

Now, do you remember how Obama observed the National Day of Prayer?
He distanced himself from it.
The Washington Times reported:
President Obama is distancing himself from the National Day of Prayer by nixing a formal early morning service and not attending a large Catholic prayer breakfast the next morning.
All Mr. Obama will do for the National Day of Prayer, which is Thursday, is sign a proclamation honoring the day, which originated in 1952 when Congress set aside the first Thursday in May for the observance.
For the past eight years, President George W. Bush invited selected Christian and Jewish leaders to the White House East Room, where he typically would give a short speech and several leaders offered prayers…
Maybe he was serious when he said America was a Muslim nation?
Yea, maybe so- why else do you intentionally anger so many people who you are allegedly the leader of, while obsequiously kissing the A$$es of people you have no control over? Or perhaps it is brain damage-let’s put him on a waiting list for about a year for an MRI to find out if he’s one prayer rug short of a mosque. He can take the government plan- after all, it is good enough for us.
Of course, if he is crazy, then maybe the government plan is a load of manure. Heck, why prevaricate- we all know its a load of manure anyway, driven by a man who is so full of himself that it is a wonder his head fits in any enclosed space.
What I find amusing is Air America’s take on Hussein- now they find that he will lie to the left too, and they have their panties in a wad over the meetings with big Pharma on this healthcare fubar- they are incensed that he did not keep his pledge to have the talks on C-SPAN, and actually have the transparency he pledged to.
Go here to hear the radio hosts trash the Resident-
At least he is an equal opportunity liar- we on the right knew he was going to lie- we had listened to him during the longest campaign in history. Jews have crossed deserts in half the time that campaign took- so we knew that the lies were there. But it has taken the left awhile now to figure out that Hussein used them as a steppingstone to the White House.
When Air America is pissed at you, then you have really taken a left. It would be a NatGeo moment to film the chase of Hussein by a pack of rabid union goons who have had their health plans switched to the Gubbmint option- watch as they begin to flank him. See their pack mentality, as they circle while the Alpha hoffa sneaks around back to sever the achilles tendons- aaah yes, there he goes down, slashed at the heels. Now unable to walk, the pack dispatches him quickly in a frenzy of entitled perks.
Ah well, it was but a dream………. or was it?
