How Democrats Solve Problems

The Governor of Illinois has a simple solution to the bad economy, raise taxes by 50%!

Gov. Pat Quinn today acknowledged he plans to raise income taxes in the wake of a Chicago Tribune story that he is considering a 50 percent increase on individuals. He declined to confirm details in the Tribune report, which said he is looking at raising the personal income tax from 3 percent to 4.5 percent as well as increasing personal exemptions.

“There will be some that will have a higher tax burden,” Quinn told reporters today during an impromptu news conference at the James R. Thompson Center, adding it would be based on the ability to pay. Quinn said an increase would be part of a “fundamental reform” of the income tax system that would provide tax relief for many Illinoisans. He said that would come from more generous tax exemptions for working families who are suffering amid the nation’s economic decline.

Ah, I see. They want to tax the rich. Why is it that this is the only things Democrats know how to do? They never met a tax hike they didn’t like. In all my years, this is what I have seen them do over and over again. Yet it has been proven time and again to be a bad move. When you punish the people at the top, they pass the costs down the line.

When businesses have to pay more, they charge more. When it costs more for them to do business, they hire less.

It’s really simple. A no braimer. Which is apparently what these politicians have in their skulls. Or don’t have as the case may be.

Al they’re doing is making things worse. Idiots.

Obama's Hope a Dope

President Obama is seeing falling poll numbers (despite what some in the MSM are claiming) and he’s realized he has to do something to keep the public from switching to torches and pitchfork mode. So he’s decided to stop with the negativity and go back to his hope messenger pose.

Confronting misgivings, even in his own party, President Barack Obama mounted a stout defense of his blueprint to overhaul the economy Thursday, declaring the national crisis is “not as bad as we think” and his plans will speed recovery. Challenged to provide encouragement as the nation’s “confidence builder in chief,” Obama said Americans shouldn’t be whipsawed by bursts of either bad or good news and he was “highly optimistic” about the long term.

The whole hope mantra helped get him elected. Once he was elected Obama had to use fear to get people to go along with his insane budget plans. Using the old “we’re in the worst crisis evar!!!” cty that Democrats like to trot out constantly, he managed to scare up enough votes to get bills passed that put future generations of Americans in debt.

But now the natives are getting restless. People are starting to eye the nearest sharp objects. And so P.O.’s changing his tune as the markets sink even faster than his own ratings.

All that’s certain is his failure to put a cabinet together that isn’t full of tax cheats and crooks, Obama is running out of “I inherited this mess” excuses. He’s been in office 7 weeks now and he’s got to start showing some progress or Bush hatred is going to look nostalgic by comparison.

They’re already making videos about how Obama is part of a big conspiracy.

Obama may have done a great sales job on the American public last year. But now he has to actually deliver on his promises. And the expectations were so high it’s doubtful he’ll manage to do better than disappoint the faithful.

Where is She Now?

We’ve all seen the picture of the naked Vietnamese girl running with napalm burns on here skin. It’s an iconic picture of the Vietnam war. Even though she was burned by North Vietnamese ordinance, a lot of anti-war people used it to attack America’s presence there.

Anyway, what every happened to her? She’s alive and well and living in Minnesota.

Obviously, she doesn’t hate the US. She moved here, raised her family here.

Sarah Palin Comic

A publisher called Bluewater Productions is putting out a series of comics on famous female politicians. That doesn’t sound like something that would sell very well in the comics business, but apparently, the Sarah Palin comic is flying off the shelves, as is the Hillary Clinton one.

They also plan to do one on male politicians starting with Colin Powell.

Bluewater is also doing comics about celebrities including William Shatner.

Yes, They Are

You can’t make this stuff up. A candidate for El Salvador’s presidency is a former CNN journalist who is running as a communist. It gets better…

He has taken a page out of Barack Obama’s playbook and tried to draw a comparison between himself and the American president. One of his campaign ads, despite the U.S. Embassy’s protests, features images of Obama and points out that both he and Obama were attacked by conservative parties who accused them of being associated with terrorists and radicals.

Well, at least he’s not afraid to come out of the closet.
