Obama's Wealth Redistribution Plan in Practicality
Got this in the email box...
Yesterday on my way to lunch at Doe's, I passed one of the homeless guys in that area, with a sign that read "Vote Obama, I need the money."
Once in Doe's my waiter had on a "Obama 08" tee shirt.
When the bill came, I decided not to tip the waiter and explained to him while he had given me exceptional service, that his tee shirt made me feel he obviously believes in Senator Obama's plan to redistribute the wealth. I told him I was going to redistribute his tip to someone that I deemed more in need--the homeless guy outside. He stood there in disbelief and angrily stormed away.
I went outside, gave the homeless guy $3 and told him to thank the waiter inside, as I had decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy looked at me in disbelief but seemed grateful.
As I got in my truck, I realized this rather unscientific redistribution experiment had left the homeless guy quite happy for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn.
Well, I guess this redistribution of wealth is going to take a while to catch on, with those doing the work.
I guess Obama's plan really won't fix everything, huh?
Is it just me, or is the media trying to convince us that the election is already over and Obama has already moved into the White House?
I mean, he has the audacity to go to Europe in the middle of his campaign and do speeches over there, he meets with Iraqi leaders and tries to get them to hold off agreeing to a withdrawal of US troops until he's President, he's fucking selling access to his big victory party...this guy, this guy, this guy!
What the fuck? Is he just entitled to the Presidency and we're all just supposed to suck his dick? I don't think so. Has he never heard about counting chickens before they hatch? Is he so unfamiliar with the electoral process he doesn't see the need to actually have the election and count the votes?
This guy is so arrogant, so conceited, so convinced of his own inevitability that it is clear he's been reading his own press.
The American Electorate needs to wake up! WAKE UP!
Barak Obama is buying this election with illegal donations. He knows it and he's turning a blind eye to the problem. His campaign donation security is so lax that Adolph Hitler, Mickey Mouse, Good Will, and Doodad Pro have donated. It is as simple as this: the campaign is soliciting illegal campaign donations. Not even the simplest of credit card authorization checks is being conducted. Why? Because the motherfucker thinks he can get away with it. And so far, it appears that he can. Shameful.
The same information would get you a denial from Amazon.com, but your money is welcome over at Obama for Pres.
This guy has not a modicum of honor as far as I can tell, and yet half the country is convinced he's the guy to represent us to the world. Ladies, get in line: It is time for your burka fitting. Also time that you took your beating from your husband, walked five steps behind him, and kept your mouth shut like a good little dhimmi wife.
Obama will raise taxes, jobs will dry up, the economy will go from slump to actual Depression. You won't be able to send your kid to college...the realities of an Obama Presidency are too dangerous to contemplate further.
Mr. Socialism is going to requisition your property and the fruit of your labor and redistribute it to those who won't do for themselves. Because that's "fair."
I haven't had a lot of free time in the last...well, it feels like forever.
I've been super busy with work and the equivalent of being a single mom four days per week.
I'd like to tell you that that's all going to change, that I will soon return to posting on something of a regular schedule, but that would be a lie. And, unlike Barack Obama, I don't make a habit of lieing.
I'm doing my best to be a good mother and a good wife and I think I'm getting a passing grade. I don't think I'm taking very good care of myself, however. I've been stressed out, I know, and have actual evidence to prove it. At least, I hope that I am attributing the evidence to the correct malady. Time will tell.
In any case, I'm around. Don't give up on me, but don't hold your breath either. Maybe I should get some guest posters. I don't know. That sounds a lot like more work.
As if you needed another reason, even Barack Hussein Obama Agrees!
This is NOT my President.
“I am the latte-sipping, New York Times-reading, Volvo-driving, no-gun-owning, effete, politically correct, arrogant liberal. Who wants somebody like that?” - Barack Hussein Obama, NY Times Magazine, 10/15/08
I'd like to say I'm surprised, but I'm all out of shock when it comes to Obama's "friends", "mentors", "neighbors", and other assorted associates.
That's right folks! It is being reported that Tony Rezko is singing like a a diva for the Feds.
Rumor is now that he's currently spilling the beans about the 30-year-old State Treasurer of Illinois, who wouldn't have won election on his flimsy credentials were it not for the deep pockets of his mobbed up family and a very interesting endorsement from The Messiah, you know: The Big O (and I don't mean Oprah).
And, the rumor goes that he's going to have to sing another song about bigger fish (Blagovich and Obama) if he wants to avoid being a girlfriend to a guy named Bubba.
Schadenfreude is soooo delicious in the afternoon.
You know, it continues to confound me that folks continue to smell his bullshit and pronounce it perfume.
Maybe as a singular item it is no big deal. But, when you start adding up ties to William (The Unrepentant Terrorist) Ayers, Tony Rezko, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, etc....it all is just a bit too...fragrant to be anything more than fertilizer.
McCain campaign, are you listening? Drop the hammer on this America-hating socialist liar!
Hello all. SpySistah is just returned from a mission. She and I thought you'd enjoy a declassified briefing on her exploits. It follows below.
I had the most amazing experience this past weekend while participating in the Army Ten Miler in Washington DC. I had such a fabulous time, I wanted to give you more details about my experience because it was aMAZing!
The Army Ten Miler (ATM) raises money to help soldiers and their families. Mainly, the money goes to support Soldier Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) programs. Before participating in this event, I had never heard about this group of programs. Their goal is to help soldiers and their families readjust to civilian life by "offering services that reduce stress, build skills and self-confidence, and foster strong esprit de corps." Links for further information follow.
I stayed in a hotel that was across the street from where the race expo was located. I've seen bigger expos, but this has never been a big deal to me. It was organized and easy to pick up my race packet, timing chip, and t-shirt. I then walked around and looked at gear and future run stations.
What set this expo apart was the slew of soldiers who were the volunteers of the expo. Everywhere you looked were fresh-faced men and women who held an air of "can do" to them. I don't know how else to describe it. I felt like I was surrounded by an amazing community.
The next day, I jumped onto the metro for 2 stops to take me to the Pentagon, which was where the run started and finished. The pentagon was the perfect backdrop for this event. In the background, you had the US Air Force Memorial of the Missing Man formation, which was built in 2006. It stands out in its sleek modern design in a city where classical architectural structures are the standard. Again, I was overcome by all the army men and women who were helping with the event. They were instructing us where to go, maintaining security, and keeping the crowds moving.
The ATM had a few aspects to its race that really set it apart. I'm going to mention them now.
1- While this event can be run as an individual by anyone, it also has a team competition. Around 650 military and civilian teams compete. They all had matching shirts identifying what Fort they were from (one group had t-shirts that said "Girls from the [Fort] Hood") or what soldier they were running to remember. 2- Disabled veterans participated. I did not get to see their start off so I don't know how many were involved as I had to be in my wave group for running. However, I passed only a couple of them. These men were constantly surrounded by clapping and cheers as everyone saw them. Their strength and determination was so moving, words can't do it justice. 3- There are shadow runs in several locations for deployed soldiers. Some of the shadow runs were in Camp Buehring, CJTF-101 (Khandahar, Fenty, Bagram Air Base, Sharana), Joint Base Balad, Camp Victory, Camp Taji, Al Asad Air Base and Camp Bucca, Q West, Tallil/Adder, FOB Delta, Speicher and Jalabad. I’m sorry, but this is just cool.
Due to security, spectators are not allowed at the start, not surprising since it's the Pentagon. They make up for it! The race was kicked off with Parachuters!!! The Canadian Armee went first, followed by our own US Army. They did formations and maneuvers in the air. It was breathtaking. Then, the National Anthem was sung. During the performance, 4 Blackhawk helicopters in formation flew low over the crowd. I can't tell you what a kick off this was! The 10 Mile race had you pass Arlington National Cemetery, OVER the Memorial Bridge (this was breathtaking), along the Lincoln and Vietnam Memorials and the Federal Reserve, around the Watergate building, along the Potomac River, near the Korean War Memorial, the Washington Monument, and the Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum. The turnaround was at 6.5 miles in front of the Capital Bldg! You are treated to two views as you run by it twice. Then, back along the Air and Space Museum to the Tidal basin, for a breathtaking view of the Jefferson Memorial, back over another bridge with fabulous views to a fabulous downhill finish into the Pentagon. You can't beat this race for the views! And it was so flat!
I know I'm leaving out fabulous details. Most of the crowd had shirts with great sayings, inspirational messages, what part of the military they were in, or the names of fallen soldiers who would not be forgotten. I passed one guy around mile 8who was running barefoot!
You finish the run, and there was a feast of water, bananas, muffins…the normal post-running nosh. There was also a youth activity area and a hooah tent with music and fun.
I'd recommend this run to anyone willing to attempt 10 miles. I'd recommend this run to anyone who wants to cheer on some amazing runners, some of whom are troops. I'd recommend this run to anyone looking to see courage and inspiration. The registration fills up fast, so if you're interested, I'd recommend going to the website in early April. Almost 6,000 registered on the first day (I was one of them) and all 26,000 registration openings were closed in 42 days.
Besides, you want to book this trip early so you can also try to schedule a visit to the White House, your congressman's office, or other DC tours which take 6 months to schedule. If in town, do NOT miss the Spy Museum. It's fun for all ages. Next time I go, I will make sure to have dinner on the Potomac and spend some time in the Library of Congress.
I’ve always felt the need and value in supporting our troops overseas. However, now I know how important it is to support our troops wherever they may be located.
Everyone has a different comfort area in how they'd like to support the troops so here are a few links to different ways. Please take a few minutes and click through these. I'm sure at least one will speak to you.
The USO, which is also an MWR group! I've sent an email to MWR to see if I can donate directly to them. If not, I will be sending money to the USO, which is fully tax-deductible, by the way. Many companies match donations…does yours? I only wish I lived somewhere I could donate time. http://www.uso.org/
Last but not least, many of us spend a lot of time in airports. It never hurts to say “Thank you” when you see a member of the US armed forces. If you appreciate the job they do, say so, and spread a little love!
Okay. I'm tired of the media being in the tank for Obama, tired of hearing how he's "The One", the second coming, the kit and the caboodle, and a burrito as big as your head.
