    Obama's SOTU speech replete with appeals to you in the middle class to pick up the pitchforks and wildly attack those that have more money then you reminds me of those leaders in old movies that stirred the crowd to lynchings to violence.

    Instead of encouraging, Obama was divisive and worse yet totally dishonest!

    FACTS from the IRS tax returns show:
    Example of PLUMBERS!!!
    11,087,123 Total returns for income reported $40,000 under $50,000 (Plumbers mean annual income $50,360) .
    Total TAXABLE returns (meaning they had to pay taxes): 9,308,560
    Average Adjusted taxable income: $28,465...(deductions,donations..etc...)
    Total TAXES PAID per return $2,832.26
    or a TAXABLE RATE OF 5.6%

    Teachers:
    There are a Total of : 1,485,600 Elementary School Teachers,
    The Mean Annual Wage: $54,330 per elementary teacher.
    After deductions, there were 17,662,044 Total TAXABLE returns meaning they had to pay taxes: After deductions the Average Adjusted taxable income: $40,599 after deductions,donations..etc...
    Total TAXES PAID per return $4,826 A TAXABLE RATE OF 9.2% on gross of $52,000!


    HEDGE Fund Managers assume they had net taxable income of $1 million!!!

    321,294 total tax returns over $ 1 million at average of $10,483,240 per return

    Total tax payments actual receipts to IRS...
    $249,019,686,000 on gross income of $1,068,330,120,000

    TAXES PAID by those evil wealthy people with $10 million + income???
    23.14% of Hedge fund manager gross income PAID IN TAXES

    BUT THIS grossly divisive PResident WHO earned $1.5 million he called for closing tax loopholes AND YET
    Obama TAKES over $100,000 a year in NET OPERATING LOSSES from stock losses!
    Obama Takes 14% off his taxes as a tax loophole of donations!
    OBAMA personal tax rate: 24%!!!

    :lol:

    You guys are either going to run a man that made over 40 million in two years (without working no less) and paid less then 14% in taxes or another guy who was a shill for government corporations you guys demonize..

    No less then three speeches..all of them horrible..were rebuttals to the State of the Union.

    It was a great speech. Chock full of facts and vision.

    Yeah, right, "vision." The exact same vision as Vladimir Lenin and Mao Tse Tung.

    Well gone on then.

    You point out the parts of the speech that were like that.

    He talked about the rich paying their fair share in taxes.

    Commies don't tax.

    So go ahead.

    Oh wait..you hate taxes..don't ya comrade?

    It appears you are dead wrong:

    Karl Marx had a 10-point program for transitioning from wealth and freedom to hand-to-mouth totalitarian hell:

    If you consider anything Obama is proposing "a heavy graduated progressive income tax," you are seriously lacking standards of comparison. Now, maybe the 91% top marginal rate we had under Eisenhower would qualify.

    If Obama were as socialist as you seem to think, or pretend to think, or something, I'd like him a lot better than I do.

    So Obama continues a republican tax plan.

    And democrats get mad at republicans, not Obama, for continuing that plan.


    How do Obamabots not realize that he's saying the exact OPPOSITE of what he's done? Was that chip not installed?

    Whenever you analysis the leftwing agenda you have to keep two things in mind

    1. Liberals always lie about their true intentions.
    2. Incrementalism

    When the income tax was originally passed, it's proponents said it would only apply to millionaires, and that the rate would be low. During WW I, the Democrats quickly jacked it up to 75% and it applied to almost everyone.

    Lesson: libs will say anything to get their latest scheme approved. The reality of its implementation will vary drastically from what was promised.

    The Dims may claim they only wants the rich to pay a little more, but once an increase is passed, they'll lobby for another. Then another, and another and another. The class war never stops.

    What this amounts to saying is, "I can believe whatever I want, and it does not need to correspond in any but the most tangential and insignificant way to observed reality."

    [Shrug.] Whatever.
