Having observed – and gagged over – the unrestrained greed of the Obama regime and its stooges for three years, it’s time to rerun something from November 2008, suitably updated to reflect current realities. (Additions/modifications are in bold italics.)
In my view, a prospective President Obama must voluntarily tax himself and his friends under his sharing plan, before taking anyone else’s money. After all, he avers that he represents a new style of leadership. Moreover, Michelle Obama recently told us that she would like us all to be members of her family, and let’s face it, what’s a family without sharing?
And we all know that the most successful form of leadership is by example.
Here is the way I see it:
– The Obama family – an extra
$578,115.91 $1,295,445.31 per year, in perpetuo.
– The Biden family – an extra
$1,032,784.05 $1,234,781.03 per year, in perpetuo.
– Each Obama supporter, individual or organization, making under $250,000.00 per year BEFORE adjustments and taxes – an extra
$53,539.75 $104,591.83 per year, in perpetuo.
– Each Obama supporter, individual or organizational, making more than $250,000.00 but less than $2,000,000.00 BEFORE adjustments and taxes – an extra
$330,510,22 $399,552.92 per year, in perpetuo.
– Each Obama supporter, individual or organizational, making more than $2,000,000.00 but less than $10,000,000.00 BEFORE adjustments and taxes –
41.5% 53% of their unadjusted gross income per year, in perpetuo.
– Each Obama supporter, individual or organizational, making more than $10,000,000.00 BEFORE adjustments and taxes – 53.8% 66.2% of their unadjusted gross income per year, in perpetuo.
Further, all Obama supporters who have ever salted any money offshore (how unpatriotic, right?) shall immediately make public all their offshore assets, move them all back into United States banks and, within twenty four (24) hours, retroactively pay the full tax rate, plus double any penalties, on each penny moved offshore, from the date of transfer. All such proceedings will remain on the public record for the next fifty (50) years, for all Americans to see and monitor.
Any Obama supporter, individual and organizational, who moved even a single job offshore will reimburse the American people to the tune of $12,994,739.02 per job moved offshore, per month, in perpetuo. Moreover, any such individual will have her/his income reduced to $2,150.22 per month, lose all perquisites, and will use her/his ill-gotten gains to purchase at least 1,125 foreclosed homes suitable for middle-class families, to be given away, free of charge, to those American citizens and/or legal residents most directly affected by having had their jobs moved to other countries. Any such individual will voluntarily move out of energy-intensive palatial residences and into middle-class housing, to live among middle-class people. Finally, any such individual will undertake to perform at least 20 hours of useful manual work per week on behalf of American citizens and legal residents, in perpetuo. (Useful means physical labor like using shovels in a stable. It does not mean, for instance, stuffing envelopes or making phone calls or using social media on behalf of “progressive” causes.)
Any Obama supporter, individual or organizational, who took taxpayer money and invested it into companies that peddle untested technologies, on the basis of a sweetheart deal and without due competition, will return all the money taken, plus a surcharge of 50% on each dollar thus procured. Moreover, any such individual will then join a work group that will perform much-needed useful manual labor, on a full time basis and free of charge, on behalf of American citizens and legal residents, for a period of not less than ten years.
Any Obama supporter who supported, by word or by deed, any aspect of de-developing the United States, shall immediately pay a fine of $3,739,001.75, lose any government job or income, including retirement pay and all benefits. Any such individual will immediately report to an American citizen-led work group to perform manual labor on behalf of American citizens and legal residents, for a period not less than 35 years.
All monies thus collected shall be put into a transparent fund managed by a team of competent citizen fiscal managers who are responsible only to the Constitution. The money will NOT be accessible to members of government on any level, and will be used to (a) pay off the national debt and (b) to bring to justice those Obama supporters who would so very unpatriotically resist this golden opportunity to lead by example.
My guess is that, when this sharing plan is implemented, the national debt will be eliminated within ten years, and the real top 1% will have finally paid their fair share. Talk about change we can believe in!
At first sight, this plan may not look “fair,” but to paraphrase Michelle Obama (and Karl Marx), we must look at things not they way they are, but as they SHOULD be.
And, let’s face it, “fairness” is after all only a bourgeois prejudice.
