The face of Obama - the Rosetta Stone

The "top 1%" isn't just going to pay for these policies. Many of them would assent to that. The rancorous language used to describe these taxpayers makes it clear that as a matter of public policy they will be made to "pay for" the fact of their wealth -- no matter how many of them worked honestly and honorably to produce it. No Democratic president in 60 years has been this explicit.

The White House says its goal is simple "fairness." That may be, as they understand fairness. But Figure 9 makes it clear that for the top earners, there will be blood. This presidency is going to be an act of retribution. In the words of the third book from Mr. Obama, "it is our duty to change it."


...Obama's budget is clearly redistributionism; saying to many "Fuck the American Dream, Fuck it in the ASS!" It was never about fixing the economy.
Send us a different clown.

You should publish the only interesting part of the article ... the rest was just bloviation.  The question the chart raises with me is how far the American people want this to go up before "redistribution" ceases to be a dirty word ... 25% ... 30% ... 40% ... 50% ....60% ... you tell me where you want this to stop ... 65% ... 70% ...  the thing about wealth is that is tends to increase itself  ... 75% ... 80%.

Strangely enough there is nothing in the US Constitution governing powers of the government to "redistribute" wealth so that everyone is equally miserable (or any other criteria). We already have a graduated income tax & property taxes which go through the roof. It already seems to go beyond fairness:
If you decide to sell your business with the intent to retire on $500K & do nothing what business is it of the government to take 3/4 or however much they want to further distributing to people who haven't worked for it ?

This is indeed the bread & circuses generation.
The America of my time line is a laboratory example of what can happen to democracies, what has eventually happened to all perfect democracies throughout all histories. A perfect democracy, a "warm body" democracy in which every adult may vote and all votes count equally, has no internal feedback for self-correction.... [O]nce a state extends the franchise to every warm body, be he producer or parasite, that day marks the beginning of the end of the state. For when the plebs discover that they can vote themselves bread and circuses without limit and that the productive members of the body politic cannot stop them, they will do so, until the state bleeds to death, or in its weakened condition the state succumbs to an invader — the barbarians enter Rome (Heinlein)
the clowns are in charge!

It is all about Obama ginning up class envy & jealousy so that he can steal from the rich for his pet projects. 11514 is appropriate!
 Politicians who have never had to meet a payroll or run a business want to tell others how to run theirs!
Phooey!
