Once Barack “Jesus” Obama takes office, we are so completely, totally and unbelievably screwed. His latest asinine plan is to impose a “windfall profits” tax on those evil, wicked oil companies, called “Big Oil” by liberals who want to give them a sinister air. (Did you know that “Big Oil” executives, also known as Destroyers of the Planet, personally pour arsenic into water systems and eat homeless children for breakfast? It’s true.) With this “windfall profits” tax, Saviour of the World Obama will give a “stimulus” check to every Working Family™ of $1,000 ($500 if you’re a single Working Person™). According to the article, Messiah Obama plans to implement this plan “as soon as this fall.” How the hell he plans to do that is a bit unclear, since he’s not actually president yet. (Though if you watch the way the media and George Bush Haters worldwide drool over him, you might think otherwise.)
From the article
“Obama simply asks that big oil companies contribute a reasonable share of the windfall profits they receive from high oil prices over the next five years to pay for emergency assistance for families right now,” the campaign says.
Doesn’t that just sound so sweet? Obama cares for the little man, so much. But notice three words in that bit: “asks,” “contribute” and “reasonable.” President-Elect Obama isn’t “asking” at all. He’s ordering, at the point of the US Government’s gun, that “Big Oil” pony up. Nor is this a “contribution.” A “contribution” is something done voluntarily. Again, when the Federal Government “asks” for something, there’s nothing voluntary about it. And then there’s “reasonable.” Who gets to decide what is “reasonable?” If you leave that to people like Obama, “reasonable” gets quite unreasonable very quickly.
I’d be interested to know how Obama Christ voted when George Bush’s stimulus plan came through the Senate. Anyone know? Of course, Bush’s plan didn’t penalize “Big Oil” which makes it completely different from Obama’s plan.
You can read the article over at Politico. After reading the article you really should read Atlas Shrugged so you can see where all this class warfare, instigated by liberals, and government “help” is leading us.
