Like Facebook for example. Pun intended. Don’t expect this monster to pay their fair share. Mark Zimmerman and the FB crew won’t pay any state or federal taxes. Guess who donated big, big to the Obama 2012 campaign? I’ll give you a sec here while you look that up…
Other FOOs worth mentioning - how much did George Soros and GE pay in taxes? I’ll save you the trouble. Nada, zip, zilch. Or very close to the number zero.
In yet another blatant pay-off to a FOO, a Washington Times article has an Obama crony who donated big, big to the Obama campaign getting the contract for phones to the poor.
And the long list goes on and on.
I have a counter here to the right of the blogs regarding our national debt. Every taxpayer has to work what, a half year now in order to pay the government to run? What is wrong with this picture?
A whole heck of a lot.
There is so much graft and corruption and overspending happening in Washington. Half this country elected this corruption right straight back into power. What I can’t understand is why lawmakers do nothing about it. Why can simple folk like myself see so many ways to cut the national deficit and the national debt without hammering and/or fleecing Medicaid/Medicare or touching the military budget or draining the Social Security coffers?
Another gripe. Eric Holder lies to Congress under oath, yet he still holds his position of Attorney General. If I lied to Congress (repeatedly) under oath, if I stonewalled investigations into a botched effort to send guns to Mexico and one of those guns killed a border agent, I’d be so cooling my heels in jail.
If I knowingly gave taxpayer money to my favorite pet groups or businesses, FOOs if you will-I knew full-well were going bankrupt [think Solyndra] I’d be in federal prison.
If I testified before Congress that while under my watch Americans died in Benghazi due to my negligence, and I scream during testimony, “At this point, what difference does it make?” I’d be smacked hard across my face, then roasted on a spike in the middle of Pennsylvania Ave.
And I’d deserve nothing less.
FOO seem to get away with a lot these days...
We must ask our lawmakers why so many countless attempts to usurp our constitution by this President and FOO he has put into power goes unchecked. What happened to the balance of power? What happened to our representatives? Why aren’t they representing?
That’s my piece for today.
