By Definition

This past weekend, B.O again demonstrated his complete inability to work within the confines of the truth. He blatantly and shamelessly denied that a tax is a tax.

* STEPHANOPOULOS: I don't think I'm making it up.
* Merriam-Webster's dictionary: "Tax- — A charge,
* usually of money, imposed by authority on persons or
* property for public purposes."
* OBAMA: George, the fact that you looked up
* Merriam's dictionary, the definition of tax increase
* indicates to me that you are stretching a bit right now.
* Otherwise you wouldn't have gone to the dictionary
* to check on it.

It is really pitiful how easily B.O. (and liberals in general) can bald face lie to the American people, and feel no shame or fear of being held to account. This is in part due to the fact that the Obamanites, (as opposed to the Jedi knights) who all but worship the "dark Force" of B.O's Imperial persona, respond to any resistance to, or correction of, their messiah's words and actions in their usual kneejerk fashion. They cry racist, and/or they play on class envy, by asking: "Don't you care about the under-privileged"?

Under-privileged? I suppose they mean in comparison to the "Privileged”. You know who we are. That's right, they are talking about us. "We the people” who work hard to feed, cloth, and shelter our families, and purchase those niceties that we wish to have to make our lives a bit easier and more pleasant. "We the people" who invent and develop new products, who create new markets, and who take risks to start and build new businesses. Products, markets and businesses that result in the creation of new jobs. Jobs that make it possible for others to work and earn; so that they too can feed, cloth, and shelter their families, and purchase things that they wish to have. "We the people" who have earned what is rightfully ours.

I'm sorry; but I don't know what privilege has to do with this. We are not talking about privilege. We are talking about the right of "We the people" to keep what is rightful ours.

Recently I had a run-in with an obamanite who claimed that just because "We the people" are opposed to how B.O. intends to finance his programs on our backs, does not make his doing so "theft".

My response was something to the fact that not only are taxes and fees that are imposed by the government in opposition to the will of "We the people" definitive examples of theft (the act of taking money, goods or property without the rightful owners consent), they are in fact definitive examples of robbery (the act of taking money, goods or property, without the consent of the rightful owner, by use of violence, or by putting the rightful owner in fear).

But then, the socialists have redefined the concept of "work and earn" as "evil greedy self interest". So it should come as no surprise to anyone that they would also redefine "theft" and "robbery" as the poetic sounding "from each according to their ability, to each according to their needs".

They like to portray themselves as the modern equivalent to Robin Hood who they say took from the rich to give to the poor. But wait a minute! That is not exactly what Robin Hood did. In fact what he really did was to take back from the corrupt and power mad ruling class, to give back to those who were wrongfully subjected to unreasonable taxation and the suspension of their GOD given rights to life, liberty and property.

I will confess that I am using generalized definitions for the terms "theft" and "robbery". But then the socialist agenda of B.O. and his ilk represent a very real and specific threat to the freedom and liberty of "We the people" who are the citizens of the United States of America. So I think I am justified in doing that.

By the way, what do you think will happen to the American idea and tradition of working your way up to a "better life", if the government is allowed to take from you anything more than it has determined that you have earned (as B.O has demonstrated his willingness to do), and gives to "the under-privileged" only what the government deems to be what they need. Do you really think anyone will ever be allowed to achieve and enjoy anything more than a subsistence living standard? History says NO! You won't!
