    The $50 Lesson
    Recently, while I was working in the flower beds in the front yard, my neighbors stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog.
    During our friendly conversation, I asked their 12 year old daughter what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be Prime Minister some day.
    Both of her parents Socialist Labor were standing there, so I asked her, "If you were Prime Minister what would be the first thing you would do?"
    She replied, "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people." Her parents beamed with pride!
    "Wow! what a worthy goal!" I said. "But you don't have to wait until you're Prime Minister to do that!" I told her. "What do you mean?" she replied.
    So I told her, "You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and trim my hedge, and I'll pay you $50. Then you can go over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house."
    She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, "Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?"
    I said, "Welcome to the Liberal National Party." Her parents aren't speaking to me.

    Gross Hypocrisy.
  • wysiwis 2012/04/24 00:44:10
    That's why they're also known as hypocrites! There's a box they can check to donate towards the national debt and amount you wish to donate. Will they EVER use it? Not likely.

    That's been the definition over and over....they are nothing but hypocrites. They don't even try and hide it.
  • wysiwis Gracie ... 2012/04/24 01:18:27
    I'm not surprised. Guess I should just read others posts first!

    I think they should rename the party to Hypocrats!
  • wysiwis Gracie ... 2012/04/24 02:44:54
    That would work! I think I'll just start refering them that way!

    They already do pay their fair share. How can you respect the leader of the country when he's up there admitting to everyone that he doesn't pay his fair share? He CAN! That's my point. He took deductions for charitable contributions that he didn't have to take. I don't take mine. In fact, I don't even itemize so I just take the standard deductions. Buffett doesn't even pay his taxes, his corporation Berkshire Hathaway owes up to a billion dollars. If Democrats would just pay their taxes, that would be a good start. How many in Obama's own cabinet and in the Democrat Party owe taxes or owed them when they got the position?

    We're arguing tax brackets and not who cheats the government. You want to punish the honest because the politicians are using it to buy votes from gullible people like you.

    Since the Bush tax cuts the tax liability has gone towards the top, not the middle and not the bottom like they all claim. The rich are paying more than ever percentage wise.

    He didn't give until he started running for office. And then you have Biden who gave a whopping $99 dollars. The deductions are just an example, he could have just tacked on an extra million if he wanted. Obama is the one that wants to take away the deductions for charitable giving. Apparently he thinks government is the best charity of all. Then, why did he give to a private charity? Because he knows that people understand that they do the most good? See, it's all just a bunch of hypocritical mumbo jumbo from the left. Liberalism is a lie, you have to lie about what you believe and what you want. You can't tell the truth.

    I don't hate Obama, I hate his Marxist agenda.

    They aren't telling the truth. Liberal lies, while America dies.
  • bluejacket 2012/04/22 17:22:32
    Here's a better question: Why are the liberals such hypcrites? But then, that's just paraphrasing your question.

    Changing all of our income taxes to sales taxes would ensure even the biggest hypocrites would pay. But they'll never support it. Wonder why.
  • Gracie ... bluejacket 2012/04/22 17:24:16

    They can't support it because it eliminates government power. If you want to see the true morality of a man just give him power and see what he does with it.
  • bluejacket Gracie ... 2012/04/22 17:31:27
    We are seeing what he does with it now in real time, Washington DC. Pelosi  reid  Schumer  obama
  • charles_1 2012/04/22 17:07:19
    They won't do it without being told. So I propose:

    1. A 50% tax on movie tickets, concert tickets, music, DVD's, plays, etc..After all, anyone who can afford the luxury of these entertainment expenses can pay a few dollars more. And the Hollywood crowd won't mind, they are the first ones to say how they are under taxed.

    2. A 10% surtax on advertising revenue. Again the Hollywood crowd won't mind. They swear they are under taxed.

    3. A 10% surtax on entertainment royalties. <- Yeah the same people, they won't mind, they swear they are under taxed.

    4. I propose a box on the 1040 form. Are you under taxed? You check yes or no. If you check yes, you pay an extra 10% tax.

    I think we should legalize pot and have a massive tax on it.

    The same could be said about conservatives. The so called feud between Liberals and Conservatives is just a childish delusion,and nothing will change without uniting.

    I can't unite with anyone on the principles of Marxism. I can't unite with anyone on redistribution of wealth like this country has never seen. I'd like people to see the light, but they don't.
  • Prime T... Gracie ... 2012/04/22 17:56:42
    Prime Time Lime
    What exactly is the light? People have opinions and should be able to have them. You see Marxism, others think those sort of statements are extreme and untrue. All I am saying is that people untied are better off then bantering and fighting.
  • Gracie ... Prime T... 2012/04/22 18:06:20
    Gracie - Proud Conservative
    Redistribution of wealth and a very progressive income tax are basics of Marxism. The people who call it extreme are lying and denying the truth. Face it, Americans aren't really very well educated about history and the forms of government, even our own.
  • keeper 2012/04/22 16:39:47
    One word... HYPOCRITES!!!!

    The IRS and the tax code doesn't stop anyone from paying extra....it's allowed, just send it in and they'll keep it.
