Here we go: Since the election i have been listening to a lot of talk radio and keeping track of how the political and social landscape has changed in such a short time. One thing i have begun to notice is that personal liberties are being eroded in the name of safety and security. I think that a lot of Americans truly support the president and wish him well in what is truly a historic event in American history (so do i). But, i cannot resolve those well wishes with what i am seeing happen all over this country. So as we contemplate our tax fate today (tax day) here is my stab at winners and losers:
Winners: Big Government and the drones sucking on the government tit
-Welcome to the big time y'all! Obama is going to take from the rich and give to the poor so that our "Country's wealth is returned to its rightful owners." Only one problem, people who dont produce will be getting paid while those of us who work hard will still get the shaft. Is there an opt-out clause on all of this crap? Geez, i wish there was
Losers: Everyone who makes too much to be considered poor, but not enough to be rich.
-That's us, the great middle class. We have unbearable mortgages but since we pay our bills on time we are not worthy of help. We have debt creeping out of control, but since we just get extra jobs or skip the dentist once a year we can pay the minimums so again, no help for us. Our taxes will go up, but not in the way that most people think. States and localities will raise sales tax to offset losses in revenue by all the people getting killed by this recession. Energy companies will raise rates to offset lack of supply or increased regulation by our "Green Team" in Washington. Gas will go up as Air standards are tightened. Eventually, this huge multi-trillion dollar pork package has to be paid...it will be paid by us, our kids and their kids.
Sorry for the rant, but i always find it irritating that most people only think of themselves and what they can gain out of government but not the impact that all of that will have on their American lives and what made this country great. So, April 15th 2009---the day that i flushed all my confiscated tax dollars down the liberal toilet...can't wait til next year!
