On the Mainstream Media and Joe the Plumber

It’s a communist PARTY!

I know I’m a little behind the eight-ball on this, but with all of the new developments in Philip Berg’s suit against Barack Obama, I haven’t been able to properly address the fallout surrounding Obama and Joseph Wurzelbacher, the Ohio plumber who singlehandedly provided those who oppose the Illinois senator with the perfect window of opportunity to talk not only about the batch of lies and misrepresentations which form the foundation of the Obama tax plan as it relates to the middle class and middle America, but also about Barack Obama’s ideology as a whole.

In the span of just three minutes, this “regular Joe” was able to make Obama admit something, in plain English, that his detractors have been screaming about for months.

He’s a socialist. He said it himself, telling Joe that he didn’t want to punish him for being successful, but wanted to give “everyone behind him” the chance to be successful by spreading the wealth.

And then what happened? The mainstream media, controlled by and filled to the brim with the American political left, began to tear apart the personal life of Joe Wurzelbacher, an American citizen who dared to ask a tough, pointed question of the coddled media Messiah. Within an hour, two dozen satellite trucks were parked in front of Joe’s house, and within 24 hours, the media was reporting that Joe hadn’t kept up with his proper licensing, owed some back taxes, and was subject to a lien on his house.

The media did, to Joe Wurzelbacher, in 24 hours what it failed to do to Barack Hussein Obama in 24 months — investigate. It sickens me. It makes me wonder what will come of our nation, as the mainstream press is so in the back pocket of a political party largely made up with people who dislike America and everything for which She stands. They did their level best to ruin this man and to leave no stone unturned simply for asking a valid question, yet they give a free pass to a presidential candidate who, besides being a socialist, has serious unanswered questions into campaign donations, into associations with terrorists and corrupt businessmen, into his very identity.

I don’t get it, and it scares me that this is the America that we have become. Should there be an Obama adminstration–probably, in that case, coupled with a democrat-controlled Congress–what kind of transparency should we expect as to the goings-on in Washington, D.C.? I worry that the media’s disdain for regular people who want to get involved–regular people, that is, who fall on the opposite side of their preferred portion of the political spectrum–will facilitate the complete erosion of our rights and foster reckless legislation on Capitol Hill.

    It is truly the year that journalism died. And with the distinct possibility of the fairness doctrine’s re-birth it can only get worse. The free press was the only real checks and balances of our government workings.

    Maybe it’s the blogs, becoming so popular, there seems to be a need to compete. In the process they have lost the real sense of what their responsibilities are. I also see Tim Russet’s death as a turning point in the degradation of the industry as a whole. Sad.

    Ayers – We should have done more to bomb
    Wright – God Damn America
    Obama – we need to spread the wealth around
    Franks – we need to tax rich people to recover the Mortgage losses
    Odinga – we need to start riots because we lost the election

    Step back, read what Obama associates say, and what country are you in? Is it USA or the old Marxist Russia?

    That is what will be elected by the “people” on Nov.4, and by the looks of it, it will be supported by the judiciary of this country.

    So what happened to lady justice, our constitution, and a government by the people for the people?

    I as a common citizen, feel that all of the animal kindom has more rights and protection of the law, thanks to our enviromental nuts, then I do.

    The idea that I cannot even question the eligability of a Presidential candidate, who ncould not even qualify to be Secret Service agent, only confirms the shame on our so called great legal minded judges, and how they are no legislating from the bench.

    Loosing the Free Press, an Honest judiciary, and our democracy is done.

    No offense, but all these judges are just hidding behind their own ego driven politically correct hyprocracy.

    It’s time for another Revolution, just like our founding fathers knew to be a fact 230 plus years ago.

    Our way of life may well be gone and we will know for sure on November 4, 2008. I have long known of the impending danger to our freedom from the liberal left but it took this junior Senator from Illinois who has no experience to qualify him to lead this country, to make me realize how quickly it can happen. He is the first Presidential candidate that I have ever heard of that might not be eligible to hold the office that he is running to obtain and yet he may win anyway without proving his citizenship????

    It seemed to me that the media didn’t go in and start looking in to this guy until McCain continually brought him up in the debate. I wonder if the same would’ve happened had Senator McCain not menationed him.

    guess it’s time to move to canada, eh?

    If we, the American people, can not sue then who can? Can we sign a protest letter to our congress or senate regarding this matter? Can the Republican sue to get Obama to show his documents of his eligibility? The clock is ticking and counting down. Any suggestion from anyone with legal background? I am sure we will have enough signatures to get the ball rolling, just need the direction to roll the ball to.

    Obama’s Tax System Explained

    Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:

    The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing. The fifth would pay $1. The sixth would pay $3. The seventh would pay $7. The eighth would pay $12. The ninth would pay $18. The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.

    So, that’s what they decided to do.

    The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve.

    ‘Since you are all such good customers,’ he said, ‘I’m going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20.’ Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.

    The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the other six men – the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his ‘fair share?’

    They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody’s share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.

    And so:

    The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings). The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33% savings). The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28% savings). The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings). The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings). The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).

    Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.

    ‘I only got a dollar out of the $20 declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man, ‘but he got $10!’

    ‘Yeah, that’s right,’ exclaimed the fifth man. ‘I only saved a dollar, too. It’s unfair that he got ten times more than I!’

    ‘That’s true!!’ shouted the seventh man. ‘Why should he get $ 10 back when I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!’

    ‘Wait a minute,’ yelled the first four men in unison. ‘We didn’t get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!’

    The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up. The next night the tenth man didn’t show up for drinks, so the nine sat down and had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn’t have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill!

    And that, ladies and gentlemen, journalists and college professors, is how the tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

    For those who understand, no explanation is needed.

    For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.

    I was taught in school, years ago, that the media was always to be nutural and not side with one or the other but only to report what was going on. WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT??
