From the WashingtonExaminer.com:
The federal Treasury expects to collect a record $2.712 trillion in taxes on Americans and U.S. business this year, shattering the 2007 high of $2.5 trillion in taxes.
Despite the sputtering economy and sustained high unemployment, the fine print in President Obama’s budget belatedly presented Wednesday revealed that the administration expects to take more in taxes than the Congressional Budget Office projects. CBO put the 2013 estimate at $2.708 trillion.
But wait; weren’t and aren’t we consistently told by Mr Obama that we need to pay more taxes because — well — we are simply undertaxed, one and all? Don’t more of us have to step up to the plate in order to keep a morsel of food in the mouths of starving American children?
That said, how can it be that we are set to collect more taxes for this country than in its entire history?
Somehow, those two concepts simply don’t equate. They don’t make sense. They are, shall we say, incongruent.
On any number of levels.
First, let me pull out some basic stops. There is an American Myth of “starving children.” I call bullshit. There are no “starving children” in this nation. Instead, there are obese children and their equally obese parents or, in the case of many, parent (singular). I don’t see Biafran-like children skelled over on the sidewalks of our cities. I don’t see the skeletons of starved infants splayed across the venues of our American Media Maggots because — if there WERE — you would see such a thing heralded and trumpeted not just for weeks but for months on the DEM/AMM channels ad nauseum.
This trumpeting doesn’t occur because the situation doesn’t exist.
The so-called “poor” in this nation drive a Lexus, possess an EBT card which yields lobster. Check the receipt below.
They have their housing subsidized, their healthcare subsidized, their furniture subsidized, their children subsidized, possess a smartphone, a flatscreen TV, the internet subsidized, free schooling, free breakfasts, lunches and dinners for their children, free transportation, and free higher education. And they don’t quite have to work if they feel diffident about it.
They possess sufficient time to war upon themselves, copulate readily and produce banks of children at will who become abandoned to the state when convenient, are responsible for nothing, are considered an entirely victimized class, are soothed and coddled and expected to produce or support nothing.
They, literally, have no expectations whatsoever placed upon them save that of the unresolved victim class. They have their Victimhood hammered into their heads at all levels and for many years.
They are a Permanent Underclass and raped by the Leftists and Demorats who purposely support their ignorant, arrogant and barbaric ways. These denizens have their ruffled fur smoothed, licked, groomed, and their ticks eliminated by the Taxpayers of our nation. And they get testy when their fur isn’t sufficiently clean in a remarkably small amount of time.
But isn’t it odd that this seeming “underclass” possesses material goods and objects of a much higher level than I possess as an American Taxpayer?
And yet, Mr Obama and his minions are shouting to the treetops that we need — we must — make the minimum wage a “living wage.”
Because, after all, the ignorant tattooed and pierced shite who presses the CHEESEBURGER icon at McDonalds should and must make as much money as an entry-level firefighter, say.
In an “equal world,” after all.
