...with this sailing blog, I just read something very disturbing that I think needs to be addressed. Here is a quote from our speaker of the house, Nancy Pelosi...I have done my best to NOT take this out of context.
"We need to work toward the goal of equalizing income, (didn't Marx say something like this), in our country and at the same time limiting the amount the rich can invest......We need to raise the standard of living of our poor, unemployed and minorities. For example, we have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need our help along with millions of unemployed minorities. Stock market windfall profits taxes could go a long way to guarantee these people the standard of living they would like to have as 'Americans'. (Read that quote again and again and let it sink in. 'Lower your retirement, give it to others who have not worked as you have for it'."
This chick is off the reservation.
Before I could have just turned a blind eye to it, but now with Obama leading in the polls it looks like a perfect storm is brewing. That means this NAZI can push her socialist agenda while there's no one around to Veto it. Too much of anything is bad...and there are too many democrats driving the bus right now. I hate to think what this country will look like after four years of democratic retaliation to Bush. Higher corporate taxes means less jobs, higher taxes means less money for EVERYONE, socialized health care means poorer quality (and slower)....the Democrats are going to make their own bed, unfortunately we have to lie in it too.
They dont give blind people drivers licenses for a reason. These democrats seem to have their heads burried so deep in the sand, unable to see the big picture. So quick to point the finger, and blame anyone but themselves, so quick to save their own ass rather than save the country. These ideas are not what we signed up for, this is the greatest country on Earth, ...and if I wanted to be poor and lazy I would go live in France. The fact is that if Obama wins this election the democrats are going to be the only ones driving the bus.....and no matter what this country's problems are in four years, they can only look at themselves to blame. Unfortunately, we can only blame ourselves for allowing such ideas into our government...where is McCarthy when we need him?
