Last night, I fell in love with Barack Obama. Again. He is ONE. SMART. COOKIE.
I hate the whole the rich only get richer bullshit that has been going on in the USofA in the past gazillion years.
Joe the Plumber is in a tough sitch but if he can’t survive paying an extra $7,500 a year in taxes (39% v. 36% of $250k), leaving him with about $152,500 (give or take) AFTER TAXES a year, Joe needs to come chat with me with my single-income household, husband who is a SAHD b/c he CANNOT work in the US yet (because of the fucked up immigration laws) and my four kids.
Joe, come sit here next to me and let me buy you a Corona with what’s left of my measly paycheck and tell you about MY situation.
Here’s a joke someone sent me:
Whether Democrat or Republican, I think you’ll get a kick out of this!
A little boy goes to his dad and asks, ‘What is Politics?’
Dad says, ‘Well son, let m e try to explain it this way:
I am the head of the family, so call me The President.
Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we call her the Government.
We are here to take care of your needs, so we will call you the People.
The nanny, we will consider her the Working Class.
And your baby brother, we will call him the Future.
Now think about that and see if it makes sense.’
So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said.
Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him.
He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper.
So the little boy goes to his parents’ room and finds his mother asleep.
Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny’s room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny.
He gives up and goes back to bed.
The next morning, the little boy say’s to his father, ‘Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now.’
The father says, ‘Good, son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about.’
The little boy replies,
‘ The President is screwing the Working Class while the Government is sound asleep. The People are being ignored and the Future is in deep shit.
