Obama´s Idea Of ´Balance´Is
Higher Taxes To Fund
A Growing Welfare State

Investors Business Daily, by Charles Krauthammer

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 1/3/2013 8:04:18 PM

The rout was complete, the retreat disorderly. President Obama got his tax hikes — naked of spending cuts — passed by the ostensibly Republican House of Representatives. After which, you might expect him to pivot to his self-proclaimed "principle" of fiscal "balance" by taking the lead on reducing spending. "Why," asked the Washington Post on the eve of the final "fiscal-cliff" agreement, "is the nation´s leader not embracing and then explaining the balanced reforms the nation needs?" Because he has no interest in them. He´s a visionary, not an accountant. He´ll pretend to care about deficits, especially while

Obama´s idea of balance is steal everything, spend it, then fly away.

Oh yeah, the Obamboozler is a real visionary! When he looks out over this once great land he see´s, cultivates and caters to the largest group of dumbed-down, barely aware, dope-smoking, self-absorbed, media-influenced, celebrity-obsessed, Food-Stamp wielding, Escalade driving, Kool-Aid drinking, entitlement rich, government-dependent, busted-ass, free-loading, low information, Obamaphone zombies and ignorant, gullible, White guilt-ridden, Volvo-driving, Birkenstock-wearing, bottled-water-drinking, Politically Correct, Xanax-disabled, Valium-dependent, mindless, spineless liberal lemmings that´s ever existed!

Awwwwh Charles, tell it like it is, "a committed big-government social-democrat" is just code for communist.

As to the other points that Charles made, it is about the destruction of the United States of America. I still cannot believe that an intelligent man like Charles does not realize the end game of this evil regime.

During the 40´s an English politician predicted America would eventually embrace social democracy with the expansion of the "proletariat," referring at that time to the increase in the black population, among others. Immigration has sped up the process, but it certainly looks as if demographics (and a lack of education) contribute to the support for a socialist style state.

Good point, #11.

He must not be underestimated. He´s deftly leveraged his class-war-themed election victory (a) to secure a source of funding (albeit still small) for the bloated welfare state, (b) to carry out an admirably candid bit of income redistribution and (c) to fracture the one remaining institutional obstacle to his ideological agenda.

Re: Dr. K´s "(a), it may be small now, but give O time. He plans to gather as much wealth from as many white people as possible.

Re: (b), it´s "admirable" because it is working, not because it´s good policy for anyone except Obama. Redistribution (outright theft is what it really is) punishes achievers and benefits non-achievers but in the end, harms everyone.

Re: (c) This is the scary part. Now that he is re-elected, he is free to expand his Communist agenda unless he is stopped by Congress. This includes invalidating the 22nd amendment. He has proved he has no compunctions about circumventing the Constitution, so watch for trial balloons about this.

This all means there are approx. 150 million Americans not only watching this happen but funding the destruction. I pray for a leader, a voice that will unite these 155 million to fight with every available means to defeat this takeover before it´s too late. The left is destroying this country with $$$ supplied by us, the taxpaying, God fearing, gun clinging fringe. Lawsuits, tax rebellion, marches, demonstrations, before we are relying on our ability to defend ourselves with the weapons they so desparately want to grab.

Obama and all his supporters are not trying to destroy America, but they can´t help it because of their ideology. They want nothing to do with God, don´t want to be judgmental in any way, want a live-and-let-live cuture with no absolutes, no right or wrong, want to punish people who are wealthier than they (since they must have gottent that wealth by theft) and want to silence anyone who tries to uphold any moral standard and relies on God to tell them what is good and evil instead of opinion.

No culture can last without morals, without the unwritten laws of love, charity (not the government perverted version of it) humility and character. Nor can they last if they destroy everything that is sacred like church, family, marriage, truth and life. Nor last if they pervert freedom and liberty into self-indulgence and self gratification without consequences.

Obama thinks like all Marxists think; that if he can pass enough laws, restrictions and controls, he can force mankind to be good. He can´t do it because nobody can do it. He has been lied to and he believes them... like all secualarists.

Spend what America doesn´t have until we are in economic oblivion and America is no more. We will then become the largest third-world country in the world.

This was/is Obama´s vision for "Hope and Change" which is rapidly becoming a reality. Soon, there will be no money, no jobs, no national defense, no hope, and no way out.

Our enemies have won without firing a shot.

He´s redistributing wealth. When your parents told you to stay in school and work hard, they didn´t realize that there would be a president whose only thoughts were to take what one has earned and distribute it to the ones who never worked hard, didn´t study and didn´t stay in school. Welfare was to be a stop gap. It was never made to become a lifestyle. Too bad this guy never listened to that in school but then again, it does get him a lot of votes.

Excellent read by Dr. K. Stopping Obie in his tracks would be very easy....just as soon as the sheep wake up and his political capital has disappeared. Not likely. We need to make Obie´s next four years (assuming he remains in office) a living hell for him.

RUSH: From Katie Pavlich at Town Hall.com: "According to new IRS emails obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request from Judicial Watch, former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice in May 2013 about whether tax exempt groups could be criminally prosecuted for ´lying´ about political activity." So Eric Holder and Lois Lerner not only are liars, they´re in cahoots. Lois Lerner was asking the Department of Justice to criminally prosecute people like Catherine Engelbrecht.

Climate change is damaging fish brains and

researchers warn

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Washington -- A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn´t know about it or couldn´t get a drone there in time to strike. U.S. officials won´t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States. In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda´s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld says he has ´no idea´ whether his tax returns and payments are accurate. Rumsfeld made the claims in a letter that was sent to the IRS and shared on Twitter on Tuesday - and says he sends the same letter to the agency every year. He also says he doesn´t even know if earlier tax documents are accurate for him and his wife. ´I have sent in our federal income tax and our gift tax returns for 2013,´ it reads. ´As in prior years, it is important for you to know that I have absolutely no idea

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius stepped down last week after overseeing the law´s

You can tell it´s an election year because so many noncrises are suddenly urgent priorities. Real median household income is still lower than it was in 2007, the smallest share of Americans is working since 1978, and the Russians are marching west, but Democrats are training fire on race, gender and the grievances of identity politics.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.
