The latest gimmick from the Obama White House in the “fiscal cliff” negotiations was to launch a twitter #My2k hash tag yesterday in the hopes that it would generate millions of “average” Americans to “demand” from their duly elected representatives to force the rich to pay their “fair” share. (Translated, Obama wants to stick it to the rich so by God you better let him.)
Debt is through the roof, deficits as far as the eye can see, and all this administration can come up with is a lame twitter hash tag to once again rally the minions into demanding that the “rich” pay their “fair share”?
You think ANY of those little dolts that handed Dear Leader four more years know that the rich ALREADY pay the vast majority of taxes in this country or that even if Obama got ALL of what he’s demanding he’d get enough for about 8 days of his bloated government? (After this past November 6th, there are only two answers: they either really are that ignorant or they’ve been so dumbed down they don’t care.)
But again, as usual, as is all to customary on this site, as I so often do, as I just can’t seem to help myself, I digress.
After all of about two seconds, the #My6t hash tag representing the 6 TRILLION Obama has blown through in just four years came into my own warped mind and my tweet on the matter went out.
While my little attempt at sarcasm seems to have failed miserably, I take solace in the fact that it seems carnival barker Obama has failed as well.
A quick check this morning of the first 50 or so #My2k hash tag tweets on twitter shows ONE, count it ONE tweet in favor of Dear Leader’s proposal. And yes that ONE tweet in favor is from none other than some idiot calling himself @BarackObama.
There are certainly no easy answers and the pain that is coming is most certainly going to be long and harsh but user Marchella who sent this pic out to her followers puts forth a good starting point:
Although I certainly understand the frustration of all who have signed the petitions, I must admit I’m not that thrilled about secession as I’ve grown rather fond of the good ‘ol U.S.of A and what she stands for. (Sorry Obamabots, you may have saddled us with him another four years but that doesn’t change what the IDEA that is America still is.)
BUT, what if instead we entertained the thought of an amicable divorce and just “lived together” for the sake of the kids?
With all the above in mind I present you an oldie but a goodie from my “inbox”. It’s been floating around email land since at least 2009 and I have no idea if John J. Wall, Law Student and American even exists, but the words as written then pretty much describe the mess we’re still in so what the hell. (Reprinted in its entirety and as sent)
Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al: We have stuck together since the late 1950′s for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course.
Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let’s just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.
Here is a our separation agreement:
–Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.
–We don’t like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.
–You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.
–Since you hate guns and war, we’ll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military.
–We’ll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and the coal mines, and you can go with wind, solar and biodiesel.
–You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O’Donnell. You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them.
–We’ll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street.
–You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and illegal aliens.
–We’ll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO’s and rednecks.
–We’ll keep Bill O’Reilly, and Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood .
–You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we’ll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.
–You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we’ll help provide them security.
–We’ll keep our Judeo-Christian values.
–You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N. but we will no longer be paying the bill.
–We’ll keep the SUV’s, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Volt and Leaf you can find.
–You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors.
–We’ll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right.
–We’ll keep “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” and “The National Anthem.”
–I’m sure you’ll be happy to substitute “Imagine”, “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing”, “Kum Ba Ya” or “We Are the World”.
–We’ll practice trickle-down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot.
–Since it often so offends you, we’ll keep our history, our name and our flag.
Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like-minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I’ll bet you might think about which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.
Sincerely, John J. Wall
Law Student and an American
P.S. Also, please take Ted Turner, Sean Penn, Martin & Charlie Sheen, Barbara Streisand, & ( Hanoi ) Jane Fonda with you.
P.S.S. And you won’t have to press 1 for English when you call our country.
