Drunken Sale’rs Of More Debt

In the next several weeks we’ll be hearing the bitter debate in Washington concerning the Debt Ceiling. Democrats {sale’rs} won’t cut anything, and will offer tokens to appease and distract. Say anything, try every trick, just get the increase. They’ll agree to cut the rate of growth claiming this will save trillions over the next ten years.

I believe taxes are high enough. In fact, I think they should be lowered across the board, with the highest rate about 30%. But President Obama wants higher rates. He wants to tax me at 35%, 39.6%, even 43.4%, and I don’t want to pay!

He’s an ideologue who wants his way, and he’ll re- main...

I guess when you’re worth $50M you don’t care what people think, not even fans . . . Here are some recent, particularly egregious examples of these misinformed celebrity ideologues doing their thing:   Jamie Foxx > as guest on TV’s SNL “ Everybody give it up for our lord...
