Obama tax cut ‘refunds’ those who don’t pay

Barack Obama says he will give 95 percent of all American workers a tax cut but does not mention that his plan would send checks to tens of millions of tax filers who pay no personal income taxes – payments that critics say look “suspiciously like welfare.”

Mr. Obama’s campaign promise, which he has repeated in his speeches and in the presidential debates, stems from his “Making Work Pay” tax cut that will give a $500 refundable tax credit to every worker or $1,000 to each working couple. But because this provision in his economic-recovery plan is “refundable,” a large number of middle- to lower-income workers who have no income-tax liability after taking tax credits and deductions the that Internal Revenue Service allows, will be given the equivalent of the tax cut in the form of direct payments from the U.S. Treasury – funded by higher-income taxpayers.

The Democrats are at it again.  Now a Republican office in York Co.  SC,

Vandals spray-painted the words “Republican means slavery” on the door of the York County GOP campaign headquarters overnight Friday.

Then there are these other ‘interesting‘ Democrats in Portland Or.,

The presidential campaign got a little too hot for two Portland men who were arrest early Saturday morning, Oct. 11, and charged with burning a John McCain campaign sign in Southeast Portland. Portland Fire and Rescue investigators said the two men made a Molotov cocktail and threw it at the sign

A Molotov cocktail?  How apropos! Uncle Joe would be so proud.  This from the same bunch that invites the Iranian thug-in-chief to a dinner at Columbia.  I guess all morality, and viewpoints are OK, except for conservative, Christian, capitalist.  Of course according to our resident liberals its all about angry conservatives. If I recall correctly, was it not a Democrat who tried to run over some Republican campaign workers during the 2004 election?

Then we have the latest bit of thuggery from ACORN in Missouri …

Mr. Duncan cited a break-in at a McCain-Palin campaign office in Missouri and alleged harassment of campaign workers by members of Acorn, an advocacy group that promotes housing opportunities and voting rights for low- and moderate-income groups. Acorn staged a rally outside a McCain-Palin campaign office in Pennsylvania. “It was a peaceful rally,” said Acorn spokesman Brian Kettering.

So who are the nuts?  Always this talk about fear on the left, but it is ACORN that specializes in Direct-Action.  Always talk about the fear of the loss of the freedom of speech, but the NYT publishes Top Secret information above the fold, without criminal prosecution.  The icing on the cake is the penchant for the Obama campaign to file criminal charges against those who oppose them in public.   Care to defend that libs?

Here’s a thought experiment:

It is abundantly clear that Barack Obama does not suffer opposition well. You talk down about Barack, you need to be shut up. More here.

Leftism historically has been synonymous with totalitarianism and there is no reason to expect it would be any different should Obama and his thugs gain control in the U.S.

So if Barack Obama wins the U.S. presidency, how exactly will he shut down the opposing voices?

I assume this blog will go dark by next spring if Obama wins, and have been ruminating about the exact mechanics of the shutdown.

I think it would involve a combination of regulatory and tax controls. Something like a “Freedom of Expression Act” which would entail that anyone expressing “political” views would need to submit to a federal regulatory authority, in recognition of the many new available channels for expression in the Internet age. If you are publicly expressing “political” opinions on the Web, you would need to be registered and regulated, and pay a tax for the privilege.

In practice, I think this would work strongly against anyone expressing conservative views. Those on the liberal side, propagating ideas on topics such as global warming, would be exempt from the regulation because such views would be considered “scientific” rather than political. Extrapolate this to abortion, home schooling, and any number of ethical matters: Conservative blogs, publications and talk radio would fall under the code while liberal and mainstream media outlets would be exempt.

We are going to be silenced. How do you all see it happening?

This is unreal.  I guess time with ACORN trained Obama well.  Why did this not wind up in the news!  Why are we allowing this fraud to be perpetrated on our nation?!  What is going on in Chicago that breeds this thuggery?

then there is part II

and part III, this is the most interesting one.  Here some handicapped individual talks about one of Obama’s minions getting in her face.

and finally part IV, even better…

This is a huge scoop! Why is this not on the TV?
