Let’s hope most of the idiots, who can’t think for themselves, stay home and don’t vote in Nov. Maybe we could offer free lottery tickets in return for not voting. That may be the only way to defeat Obama!
July 10, 2012 at 8:12 pm
I have said we are going to H— in a hand basket. With the big O in office we won’t even get the basket.
April 26, 2012 at 8:10 am
This message is for Tracy. You should educate yourself, please. All Obama´s policies have been failures and at a cost to the nation that even our grandchildren won´t be able to pay.
April 17, 2012 at 8:21 am
If Obama gets re-elected we WILL become a socialist nation. There are far too many people living off the Government. Not to mention too many illegails coming over here for free shit…..Enough is enough. Our Country wasn’t in the best shape 3 1/2 years ago….but it is far worse now and will be bankrupt soon I fear.
April 3, 2012 at 12:49 pm
IGNORANCE! NOT OBAMA, HELLO BUSH! He was dealt shit and thankfully bailed out the auto companies. The Banks screwed everyone over and it’s not Obamas fault!

March 31, 2012 at 5:43 am
you have to be kidding if you think this person knows what hIES anything. He came in when we were doing a heck alot better. Now we are in real trouble Believe it it could get worse if he is reelected.
March 9, 2012 at 3:37 pm
Keith, “the big O” was never mentioned in the song, just “the govenment”. Your reaction is a little Freudian!
March 8, 2012 at 7:18 am
Wow, it’s amazing that the big O took over when everything was going great in the country. Oh wait, that was a dream. While the song is funny and the message is resounding, the comments as though this country was running perfectly before Obama took over is just downright ludicrous. We keep electing the rich to take care of the poor. Now isn’t that a oxymoron. I read these comments and you would think that Bush (take your pick) did such as outstanding job that none of this are either’s fault. If that had been the case, then no way Obama would have ever got elected. People, get over your hate and open your eyes. Both parties are to blame and if you for one moment think that either party is going to take care of your needs, you’re sadly mistaken. That is, unless you’re one of the 1%. Congress do not pass laws to hurt themselves, so get over it.
March 7, 2012 at 6:35 pm
I agree both parties have some blame, but his where the ignorance lies, that the economy is like a car and needs a good driver. Government is only a hinderance to the economy when it strays outside of just enforcing contract law. I not against some social services of government as long as people realize there economic cost to it just like when left complains about foreign interventions .
October 31, 2012 at 6:44 pm
We better get our country back and I mean now! The democratic party is not longer democrats. I just received an e-mail of a man in 1944 who ran for president 3 times and then said.. He does not have to run again to make this a socialist country the democratic party will do that and they sure are!! They are damn commie sob pos and obama need a speedy trial for TREASON and then hang the sucker till he’s dead!!! You know obama people are the dumbest in the world.. remember that men on the street they did and spoke to people who just voted for obama the abomination?? They reversed what the 2 stood for and told people the opposite and every damn one of them agreed with the guy as long as they said Obama SAID THIS!! Hahahahahhaa! That is how STUPID they are. Not a brain in the bunch just their hands out for things others have worked for.. SCREW THEM TOO!! Every one of those judges and politicians who have voted AGAINST our Constitution needs to be TRIED for TREASON and HUNG till they are DEAD DEAD DEAD!!!!! They have not kept their oath and need to be removed.. No One has a job for life if they are not doing their job and there are obviously Communists like Obama who not even the Dung Beetler will touch him!!! His STENCH is HORRIFIC!! HE IS THE WORST OF EVERYTHING IN OUR AMERICA AND NEEDS TO BE PURGED FROM OUR SHORES ALONG WITH THE MUSLIM CZARS 2 OF WHICH HE JUST ADDED TO MORE OF OUR HOMELAND SECURITY .. OR WHAT WAT OUR SECURITY BUT WE HAVE NONE NOW! ONE IS THEM WAS BORN IN DAMASKUS, SYRIA … IN CHARGE OF OUR SECURITY.. HANG OBAMA TWICE .. JUST BEFORE HE DIES BRING HIM BACK SO WE CAN DO IT AGAIN A FEW TIMES FOR THE ABOMINATION THAT HE IS.
March 7, 2012 at 5:34 pm
Let us get our country back!!!!!!!!
March 4, 2012 at 12:37 pm
Talk about government waste, the First Lady had to start the Christmas break with the kids before her husband, and take a separate private plane and all the security, wasting tax payers money. Obama has been to Chicago numerous times for only 6 hours and when he leaves at 11pm his planes wake up people living within miles of the airport that have to get up early the next day for work. Waste the tax payers money on them for personal business! A new President will be coming in 2013!
March 3, 2012 at 8:10 pm
wow what a waste! Big fn Deal! Bush wasted Trillions on war, ignorant!
April 3, 2012 at 8:42 am
This is the worst president in American History! I see bumper stickers with Obama, I would like to know what are these people thinking. Millions have lost jobs and after 3 years still can’t find one. This has NEVER happened before. ANY president is better than this one. Vote in November GOP!!!!
March 3, 2012 at 8:02 pm
No matter who is in office it will be them same old crap. If you are not in the top 2 percent no one is concerned about helping you anyway. The middle class is going to disappear and the country is going to be like the rest of the world, the HAVE’S and the HAVE NOT’S! America is based on Greed and will be from now on. So whoever is in office you better have a workable plan!!!!

bring that show/song to PR ASAP/RUSH and send THE CLEANER
February 17, 2012 at 6:47 pm
This song brings me back to the 60′s when songs had a good message about the government/war! It’s time to repeat history again and this time a revolution is needed to clean house like the white house starting from the top and down to all levels with no exceptions! AS IN WE THE PEOPLE WILL RUN THIS BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY !!!!

WE NEED TO REPLACE ALL REPS IN HOUSE AND SENATE INCLUDE OBAMA AND START OVER. LOWER THEIR PAY, BENIFITS ,AND HAVE THEM WORK FULL TIME WITH 2 WKS VACATION LIKE THE REST OF US. WHAT MAKES THEM SPECIAL?
February 17, 2012 at 8:02 am
Lucille, Do you really want them to stay in DC nearly all year ?
Imagine the damage they could do. Better they stay a short time
then go back to their regular jobs and professions and live under
the rules, laws and taxes they impose on the rest of us. They should
also get social security and no special benefits. I’ll dream on…
February 22, 2012 at 10:51 pm
Super truth, restfully true! Super talent!
February 15, 2012 at 7:30 am
John Paul Getty, one of the first billionaires, once said ” if all the money in the country were divided equally among all it’s people, in ten years it would be back in the same hands it is now”. This administration, in it’s lack of wisdom, is trying to change the nature of things.
Llamong all it’s people, in ten years that money would be back in the same hands it is today”- This administration is trying to change the natural order of things!
February 14, 2012 at 4:19 pm
This is fantastic. The scary thing is that “O” has increased the dependant class to such an alarming degree that it is going to be very hard to beat him. As for me I vote for ABO, any body but Obama.

As factually funny as this is, there will still ne about 50% of Americans that will vote for the guy who supports more government. Sad.
February 9, 2012 at 8:46 am
I believe this is from the musical, “Barack Obama and The Money Factory.”
February 8, 2012 at 8:01 pm
this was great and I hope there will be more voices with the same message
February 7, 2012 at 7:53 am
It is not specifically the “Obummer” group as you say, dr mike, but the political reps in general. It has been building for quite some time. May be more attributable to the wealthy securing securing their grip on easy money by allowing wall streeters leveraging of significant margins on every dime of GDP or GNP. the GOP has allot to answer for with their platform of deregulation. It is regulatory laws that keep the crooked in line. Getting rid of the rules for the priviledged few is the cause of the financial disaster we have now.
February 5, 2012 at 11:45 am
It being obvious that: “More truth is said in jest than anyway else” aside, that totally honest Tim Hawkins also sings quite well.
February 5, 2012 at 9:38 am
Presently, the bankers, wall street and the huge corporations are running our government with the politicians that they buy and the laws that they pay for. We have 2 choices–accept a police state or get involved and stop it.
February 4, 2012 at 12:27 pm
Right on, Tim. Let’s see….50% of Americans pay no taxes. Baby Boomers like myself are beginning to retire after paying into the system for many years. Our tax contributions will continue to decline. Our birth rate does not sustain even a 0% growth rate; it is declining. The Obummer group is bankrupting us incredibly fast. So, by my understanding, Obummer thinks that eventually no one will be paying taxes, but everyone will be on the Government teet. Where did this Bozo come from? Certainly not Hawaii.
February 4, 2012 at 7:39 am
Vote out the crooks in DC and get someone who knows which end is up! America has been screwed long enough!
February 3, 2012 at 11:02 pm
Tim Hawkins is right on. However, instead of ‘laughing;, I challenge you to put your laughs into action. The candy man government knows if all we do is laugh, they will continue doing what they are doing…and more.
February 3, 2012 at 7:27 pm
The truth is at the polls this Novembeer–Only YOU as a voter can change government. Adding a 28th amendment to the constitution forcing congress to do our bidding and abide by the same rules that govern all of us only works IF the amendment is followed. We already know we have a President that circumnavigigate the Constitution!
March 11, 2012 at 8:37 am
February 1, 2012 at 1:18 pm
This guy is right on. Gotta love the music.
February 1, 2012 at 11:44 am
Criticizing the GOVERNMENT is racist??? Come on and get a grip. There are people of all shapes, sizes, colors and religions in the GOVERNMENT. Racism goes both ways, and maybe you should take a look in the mirror. Maybe YOU are a racist….

The Gov.needs abolished,along with all those so called people you described,why is this,because if you went to school like I did,you learned that the Gov.is not aloud to be what it is today,CORRUPT,and employing all those LOSERS it’s got on it’s payroll.Hit the Books Babe!

When you are asked by a poll taker if you are going to vote.. tell them YES, Because if you say no, I have heard they are using your name and getting people who are of less morals to vote for you… I AM FOR PROVING WHO YOU ARE TO BE ABLE TO VOTE. PHOTO ID!!!!
January 29, 2012 at 5:08 pm
When I was in the military, I could not wait to get out of the Army. All of these people are officers and have served a number of years in a military environment, low pay, marginal housing, and some very long hours per week. Now after serving for years they get kicked square in the pants by some obscure regulation. I for one do not approve of this reduction in force, if anything it should be increased not decreased. Is this the beginning of another Pearl Harbor? When I was in the army we had an expression for these incidents, we just said FTA. For you under 50 people ask an old timer what it means.
January 29, 2012 at 3:40 pm
Gallup poll last month shows Americans gave Congress an approval rating of 9%. Imagine if you got a 9% on your last job eval-how long would you be employed? Worse – they don’t even care. We don’t finance their campaigns, why should they listen to us. Vote them out, get new ones also financed by the big boys- same problem. Don’t know the answer.

January 26, 2012 at 5:02 pm
I want to start proceeding for Impeachment, we cannot give this man the rest of this year to finalize his plan to destroy our constitution and our economy so that we can be controled by the Government. This is the United States of America, he has committed treason over and over and everyone is so afraid of making a martar out of him that they will do nothing until it is too late. He will destroy our defenses and deplete our military and we will lose our country as we know it.
Please stop this enemy of America NOW.!!!!!!!
January 26, 2012 at 4:30 pm
So many losers on this post…You have no idea what you’re talking about. Soooo in the dark about everything. First off the war is a joke and the economy is unfixable in a global market with a capitalistic world that demands as a solution worldwide military conquests. Capitalism is all about repeating history time and time again where we end up with a two class system of a small rich ruling class and a massive poor peasant class. Freedom is the only thing that helped grow the middle class to bring about the greatest riches the world has ever known. Freedom controls capitalism and hones it into a well regulated and fine-tuned machine. Capitalism as a force with all its Newtonian like vectors left to its own natural order wild type simply means more of the same madness where the very rich dominate the overwhelming poor, like what we see in third world countries…Wake up man Obama is the only answer, the republicans have nothing! Nothing I say but more nonsense to propel us right into a depression, end of story.
January 31, 2012 at 8:19 am
sorry you think that our men and women dieing for us is a joke.disrespectful, disillusioned comes to mind. The reason the economy is a joke is because the jester is not even attempting to stem the tide, he just continues to open the flood gates. when he succeeds in bringing us down, it wont matter how many obama water wings your wearing, your going down. His actions speak true(r) than his words. Integrity…he sorely needs it. “Dont ask what your country can do for you..ask what you can do for your country”, comrade.
January 31, 2012 at 7:27 pm
You are so right,(see the light) What we need is all the true Patriots(is there enough) to come froward and spill the Blood of all these Idiots in Charge,starting at the TOP?hmm…..nothing else will solve Americas problems but War within!
February 2, 2012 at 5:29 pm
Larry you are an IDIOT TROLL,OBAMA and his ILK all need the Chamber!
Both Parties as well!
February 2, 2012 at 5:24 pm
You neglected to define this freedom that you mentioned so many times.
February 21, 2012 at 5:08 pm
Leslie, your desire is understandable but if it would work, it would probably have been tried by now. To impeach and convict requires 66 votes in the Senate, and with the Senate in Dem hands, they need all 47 Repubs plus 19 Dems to convict. The numbers are not there. The only chance to impeach is if the Repubs take back the Senate in Nov. If they do, chances are Obummer will be gone. If they don’t, he’ll probably be back in for another 4—God help us!
Besides, how can you “impeach” someone who has usurped the office and does not hold it legally?
February 7, 2012 at 6:36 pm
Critical thinkers can usually see thru the nonsense and BS. This guy is great! Good stuff.
January 26, 2012 at 2:10 pm
Our govt is run by a bunch of chicago thugs. Just learned today that obummer gave Gov. Jan Brewer a lecture because she critisized him her in her book and also, that after the oil spill in the gulf tolld Gov. Bobby Jindel NOT to critiisize him on TV.
January 26, 2012 at 10:30 am
Oduma is totally incompetent. He will be packing in 2012..
January 26, 2012 at 6:31 am
He is not incompetent; his behavior is completely evil. He knows what he is doing and he is dong it deliberately to bring down the Republic
January 29, 2012 at 1:02 pm
The whole goal of Liberal, Socialist and Comminist like Obama is to bring down our system by spending us into Run-A-Way Inflation. We have a $15 trillion+ national debt and growing every day. Sooner or later something going to happen. This can’t continue for ever. Can It?
February 5, 2012 at 8:35 am
Hopefully 6ft.under, we the People will be packing him!
February 2, 2012 at 5:31 pm
Barry O, did you mean “packing” (armed) or “sent packing” (fired)?
February 7, 2012 at 6:42 pm
Elections are coming, vote for a change we can really believe in conservative democracy.
January 26, 2012 at 5:01 am
Wow! I want some of what LauraNo is smoking…cuz we all know Democrats always have the best weed right.
The fact that she believes all those lies should give us all concern that there are enough ignorant people in this country to give this morally bankrupt failure of a president another 4 years!
Go drink another round of Koolade!
January 25, 2012 at 8:00 pm
A leader encourages (enables) people to be self sufficient. Allows people the pride and respect of accomplishment. Lack of leadership is easily spotted by those that always blame others for thiers or your plight in life. Those that buy into that are always dependant on others, do not have or deserve respect. All of us get knocked down at times. Winners get up and losers point to others for thier situation.

I would like to hear so constructive dialog on how to fix it ?
I’m not the smartest person in the room .
I will have to work the rest of my life to make ends meet .
I have been working all my life never been unemployed , paid my taxes . Have a small house . a used car . I always try to Buy America made items becauce one of the only ways I know that I can truly make a differance . I make only about 35.000 a year take home far less . I’m at the end of my rope . I have only missed one election and I vote for who I beleive to be the best person for the job . No matter what party they are in . So can we please work together to fix the problems that are facing us before this Country pulls its self apart .
January 25, 2012 at 1:49 pm
We have no true leader in this country anymore .
I can not name one person in government that I would like
my children to use a role model .
January 26, 2012 at 11:04 am
Living by your rule of life will not get it today,Americans will not vote them out,why,because your vote does not matter,Dumbshit is the Problem and all who agree with him,so therefore,boot there worthless asses out of this Country,along with all the ILLEGALS! Today or there will be no tomorrow!
February 2, 2012 at 5:38 pm
Wow. I wonder what he would have said if Obama hadn’t grown the economy and private sector jobs, cut taxes to lowest level in decades, stopped a foolish and expensive war and tried to reign in the exploding cost of health care. You people are living in Candyland alright.

Message appreciated and agreed. This man, however, gets my respect as an amazing performer….funny, great voice, excellent presentation and choreography, albeit goofy, as it’s supposed to be….I see the next Robin Williams here. And yes, he’s nailed the sad state of our governments affairs perfectly. Sad, but true.
January 23, 2012 at 7:01 pm
We got into this mess because naive young people believed his LIES and the unions to whom he had made many promises and the liberal media who fell in love with him ande still love him.
January 23, 2012 at 6:51 pm
When a state has an open primary, such as the SC republican primary,you always get a lot of spoiler votes, in this case democrats voting for the one most likely to lose to Obama. The true result of the republican votes is not known, a good reason to have voters register as rep, dem, or ind. A voter does not have to register by party in SC, something they should change.
January 23, 2012 at 4:46 pm
Sad but true!! The Government is really screwed up in this country…I can’t wait until we’re all broke, and this fiscal mess is over…I want them to live hand to mouth, pay check to pay check, and have some of us breaking into their homes to steal back what they’ve taken from us…I won’t be long before more people are shooting towards the White House! We’re going to end up like Syria…and I’m not so sure it’ll be all that bad, if we can get back control of our own pay checks again, our voices will be heard again, and we can walk free in the country that takes great pride in being so!
January 23, 2012 at 8:47 am
We’ll need control of our guns first…
February 8, 2012 at 10:21 am
When Bush was president, the left felt like they were not being represented ,and with Obama as president, the right feels under- represented. Seems to me, if Romney(a moderate) were elected in 2012, both sides would be happy. We should always elect moderate presidents to avoid a divided country, as we’ve had with the last two presidents?
January 23, 2012 at 7:55 am
Hall, if you think Mit is “moderate,” you’re on Koolaid. He is Obama-Lite.

No doubt there will be a hit on this comic or this will be pulled by the ignorant and stupid elite or those that think they are elite. Out with them all!! Ron Paul…at least he will trim the government down to size, like 50% less, wants us out of the UN and the Patriot Act…these two mean freedom coming back and the UN no longer can tell us what to do, what to eat in our own country! Perhaps we won’t have to be groped because we want to travel and enjoy!!! Keep our oil here…we have enough in the States and producing right now to support the nation..of course the EPA is threatening to close down N Dakota..write your legislators and insure this does not happen…Thanks and let us get a true patriot as our President this time..no big money interests..the interests of the people and our Constitution. No Romney nor Santorum/
January 22, 2012 at 11:24 pm
My bet is that a lot of common sense democrats will vote republican in 2012, although they probably wouldn’t admit it.
January 22, 2012 at 8:45 pm
You are sooo right Frank. I, tho, as a reg. Demo, WILL vote GOP for Pres. You can have common sense and be smart, but you can’t be smart and have common sense. I know you ‘Smarties’ out there won’t understand that, but thats how it is. Trust me.
January 28, 2012 at 8:15 am
Are there any common sense democrats?
February 5, 2012 at 3:32 pm
Yes there are. I know of a campaign where a Rep candidate has a Dem campaign manager (union to boot) and many Dem supporters! I also worked last year for a Dem who keeps that label because of where he was born but thinks and votes like a Rep.
February 7, 2012 at 6:54 pm

@ PAB: The government, both Dems and GOP, are right in bed with the socalled 1%. Industry can’t control the masses w/o the arm of the government. You are drinking their coolaid my friend.
January 21, 2012 at 12:50 pm
Correction: industry wouldn’t have a chance of controlling the masses if the government weren’t violating the Constitution right and left. Who’s to blame: US, for not forcing the House to impeach the high criminals! The solution: http://www.equalizeramendment.org.

Soooo True ,and we are such lemmings,we listen and do nothing as these crooks run our country into the ground.

Brilliant!! So true!!! For ALL our governments!! Bravo Tim!!
January 21, 2012 at 3:49 am
PAB, my guess is you most likely are an educator. I watch Fox and CNN, but they, too, have their agenda for the conservatives for ratings. HOWEVER, they make a helluva lot more sense than any MNSBC or other leftist reporting. Oh, and I’m sure you contribute to NPR too! ha ha ha That is the most biased, depressing info. ever. Talk about doom and gloom.
January 20, 2012 at 6:31 pm
Wonderful!! And sooooooo true!!!!
January 20, 2012 at 4:31 pm
Unbelievably true. Just look at what Obama has done – “Obamacare.” The general consensus is that WE THE PEOPLE DO NOT WANT IT. How did our country ever become, “Gov’t for the Gov’t, by the Gov’t, and of the Gov’t. UGH!

It was a true scenario of what is happening and only the beginning of what will happen if Obama gets in again.He’s already commented that the Constitution should be dissolved and the Supreme Court should be disbanded.The true problem in this country is the fact that the young folks as a whole (21-40)have not been educated in the true meaning of communism.Well you are just starting to get a little taste of it now but if Obama gets in again it will be full speed ahead.
January 20, 2012 at 12:00 pm
Like cooking a frog, our students have been “cooked” or dumbed down if you like that better; America, if the …….gets back in will fly under a black flag..we better do something and soon…only 76% of our military say they would respect the Oaths that they take when sworn to duty or into the Armed Forces…the rest, the O111// $$ is recruiting for his Army of which we pay for…vote Ron..he wants the NTU gone and back to educating our youth right…from Amerigo Vespucci forward! A Christian man who some say never has done a thing..well, like he said, I am not going to vote for something against the Constitution and against the people of the USA and my State…not one other DC legislator has ever been that committed to we Americans..he out thinks most Americans because they have been dumbed down and do not know how to understand fully what he stands for.
January 22, 2012 at 11:35 pm
Obama is a pathological liar and an incompetent narcissist. He is the ultimate liberal Democrat.
January 20, 2012 at 10:20 am
I’d like a CD or DVD of this. Very good!
January 20, 2012 at 10:15 am
PAB – If you think government can efficiently and effectively manage anything, please reconsider. Just remember two salient points regarding our trend toward Western European socialism – 1. Socialism is great until you run out of other people’s money; and 2. If you think health care is expensive now, just wait until it’s “free”. Somebody’s got to pay for all these “freebies” and I’m one of those “somebody’s”. And no, I’m not one of the 1% – I’m right in the middle class with the rest of the “99%”.
January 19, 2012 at 11:11 am
How can Obamacare be as bad as the insurance companies bilking us for countless billions of dollars each year before they pay one red cent towards actual healthcare? Then refuse to pay claims for any reason they deem fit. Wise up people. They don’t like Obamacare bexause it requires them to pay 80 cents out of each dollar collected for actual healthcare. My God how could they EVERdo that? Also they would have to foot the bill for previous conditions. Of course they don/t like that because it takes a big big chunk out of thier HUGE profits. Why? Because someone gets a new job with a different health provider they should just suffer and die because it is a previous condition? The repukicans would have them just go somewhere and die. We can ALL agree on that.
January 22, 2012 at 7:24 am
Sally – Who do you think is paying NOW for all of the medical shoplifting that is going on when un-insured people show up at the ER and get free care? Yep — you are. And I am. But I believe that if we don’t start to manage all this free give-away care, we’ll never be able to fix it. So the pre-Obamacare status-quo is completely un-sustainable….unless, that is, America starts turning away patients who cannot pay. (*won’t happen).
So recognize that the Republican’ts need to wake up and help fix health care. They are not leading, they are not following. So they need to get the heck out of the way of those who understand the magnitude of the problem.
January 22, 2012 at 6:51 pm
There are better ways to fund health care than what has been slammed down our throats. I believe all of America agrees on this point.
January 22, 2012 at 9:15 pm
Welfare is too easy to get and keep, they do not insist they work or get a little more education for a better job; then consider the 300,000 illegals and gosh only knows how many children are involved that get free health care and 90% of the time in E.R…most drive Escalades or the like, can afford to eat very well on our taxpayer dollar; my grandson and I are lucky if we make it through a whole month without a steady diet of sandwiches and milk of a juice…
January 22, 2012 at 11:50 pm
I am with you all the way there; I have friends in Africa and the UK and they have been ill; they write and tell me what is going on to an extent and sometimes need money to take care of themselves…do we want the black flag over us or not..we better find a way to truly fight this if we don’t. Suggest you find William Windsor and join his group or William Homolka and help us flood the States with demands not to put this insane breed on their State ballot for the Presidency…too, Judge Malihi in GA, let him know you support him and urge him to follow the law and not legislate from the bench..he is doing a great job so far and he is a liberal judge..
January 22, 2012 at 11:38 pm
love it – where can I buy the CD? No seriously – would use it to play at gatherings or parades.
January 19, 2012 at 10:42 am
So True, you would be niave to think otherwise.
January 19, 2012 at 8:29 am
Pab, Seriously Obama and the Dems just cut 500bilion from Medicare. Not oh if we change this we can save money, no cuting out waste or fraud, just hey we need it over here so we will take it. He has also cut the revenue for SS with his 2% tax cut, puting it more in the hole, that way it goes to people who pay no income taxes and even helps those who come out ahead with an earnd income tax credit. So stop the BS about protecting those programs.
January 18, 2012 at 12:43 pm
PABS you are so pathetic. You actually believe all of that BS about Republicans being the boogie man. They’ll take all of your stuff away and laugh while children starve and old people die in the streets. Please try and get in touch with reality
January 18, 2012 at 12:41 pm
Hey pabs, sounds like your are getting your excremental downloads from pbs and your union boys. if you wou;ld have applied yourself in school you would probably be singing a different song
January 18, 2012 at 10:09 am
A note to PAB. There are of course the realities of the world and the sky is not falling. It is however rather nearsighted and uninformed to take a position that Democrats are the answer. Simply stated the basis of Social Security and Medical aid programs at all levels were a hair brained idea in the first place. Small government and minimal intrusion into our lives is best. True we have experienced a period of greed on Wall Street but whoever in their right mind believes Government is smart enough to manage the problem. If Elected officials were really intelligent they would not be in office, they would working in a real job.
January 18, 2012 at 6:14 am
@common: I never heard such a coddling, apologetic defense of a powerful, broadbased system that rewards wanton greed and disregard of basic American values, for the aggrandizement of a few, as a mere “period of greed on Wall St.” I suppose you’d like a pres. romney to do away with with the SEC, FDIC and other institutions that provide a fallible yet last-resort means of keeping order, and keeping us out of a 1930s economic abyss. No govt., no referees, no rules– just a bunch of poweerful oligarchs muscling the rest of us around. You can have it.
@major: it takes TWO to tear a country apart. The factless cretins are doing more than their fair share!
January 18, 2012 at 6:49 am
What the heck is this? We are all Americans and there is no reason for Obama to be re-elected. He has torn this country apart from seam to seam. His promises are all broken and nothing good has come of his presidency but more debt! We need capitalism to work 100% to get the country back working again….no further entitlements or pork!!
January 17, 2012 at 6:03 pm
Majorpapa, have you given any thought to the fact that Pres. Obama has had absolutely no cooperation from the Repubs, and that may be the reason he hasn’t been able to get anything done?? They are the ones who hate him so much they would rather see the great country fail than cooperate with him! And Bush, “the Uniter and Decider” was the one who divided this country at election time by buying the Office of the President, not winning it.
January 19, 2012 at 8:48 am
Obama had no trouble getting his healthcare bill passed. When are you Libs going to stop blaming Bush for everything? Obama has been in office for 3 years , and has made a shambles of our economy but still blames Bush for it.
January 19, 2012 at 9:31 pm
Better to be blind than refuse to see!
January 23, 2012 at 9:51 am
You can all write before Thursday and encourage the judge to hold this
%@* accountable for contempt of court..follow the Constitution, on Thursday, the 26th. We get him knocked off enough state ballots, he will not have the electoral votes to take the office back..that is probably our best hope other than this being resigned …
January 22, 2012 at 11:46 pm
Actually the government and only the government can, in principle, protect us from the greed of the powerful wealthy and their corporations. If we want to see the already rich get richer and the middle class get much poorer, we should elect a republican president. If we want to preserve medicare and social security, we should elect a democrat president. The battle is between the rich and powerful 1% and the rest of us, the 99%. A vote for a republican strengthens the 1%, for a democrat the 99%.
January 17, 2012 at 5:32 pm
Who is obama getting his big campaign money from? Not the 99 percenters.
January 19, 2012 at 9:35 pm
Millions at these dinners he attends! Can you imagine paying 10,000 for a dinner to eat with this breed?
January 22, 2012 at 11:47 pm
Obama gets mega bucks from the insand billionare George Soros of Texas and from Hollywood celebrities who like the idea of a government with no morals and no restrictions on behavior.
January 28, 2012 at 1:13 pm
your thinking is total bull. how do you make it thru such a feat as wiping your butt without nancy Pelosi giving you the paper.
January 20, 2012 at 9:36 am
Hoo Boy! PAB, get your head out of the sand, or whatever other dark, dank, smelly place it’s in. Sure, the Government can supply your needs, that is, if you want to live in the projects and buy your groceries with food stamps, or if you want to have baby after baby because it’s the only way the Government will give you more of a meager subsistence, because you will never live a worthwhile life again. People that want the government to provide for them have not one iota of pride and are the shame of the country. I’d rather work and provide for my own family and get the Government the hell away from me as much as possible. Get a job!
January 20, 2012 at 5:35 pm
Well said. Maybe we can get an imbocile like the candyass to make up a jingle to sing for us. I believe it is more evident to the voters than ever before that there should NEVE EVER be a republican elected again. We can ALL agree on that.
January 22, 2012 at 7:29 am
I thought the lyrics were spot on and very creative. Time for all Americans to ask themselves the same question. From this November forward, what America do you want to live in? If Barack Obama (aka Bari Shabazz), is reelected, America will be a Euro Socialist nation within this term. He will possibly 2 maybe 3 Supreme Court Justices and “fundamentally change”America. If that is what you choose, good for you vote that way. If you want America to be the America of our Grandparents, only much better for all races and religions, then vote that way. You all know who you are….do you agree with where we are headed. Even if you are just old enough to vote, pick a side after careful consideration. I assure you, this truly IS the election of your and all of America’s life! God bless.
January 17, 2012 at 5:07 pm
No way BO can turn us into Germany or France in 4 more years. Aside from medical care available to all, what of socialism do you fear? Do you like your health insurance premium increases? Do you think tort reform and selling across state lines will fix insurance? Not likely. Some things like the fire department and medical care work better socialized. Obama won’t have enough support in Congress to wreak the havoc you predict; you have no sound basis to claim “the sky is falling”. I don’t want medicare and social security privatized so I think we should vote democrat and pray for a better candidate four years hence.
January 17, 2012 at 5:39 pm
Politicians have three goals.
1. Get reelected.
2. Vote the party line. (Helps you get reelected.)
3. Please the lobbyist. (This pays for the reelection.)
January 17, 2012 at 4:59 pm
I’d like to ad another: take out of office as much money as they can via salary, bribes and retirement benefits

Hey grumpy grandpa lib, go post on another site. Good grief,
so typical of you libs. No discourse just putdowns!
January 17, 2012 at 4:53 pm
This is pretty good. But where’s the funny line joking about MILITARY SPENDING! That would lift it to something actually edgy.
But it’s so much safer to joke about the relatively small amount the goverment takes to to what some feel is edifying, rather than about the gross majority of funds it takes to do something utterly destructive!
January 17, 2012 at 12:17 pm
Military spending, oh yea lets cut the Military, like Carter did, sure helped when Iran took the hostages. On the day Reagan was sworn in, Iran was so afraid of what he would do they freed the hostages immediately. According to my freinds in the military at the time, while they were under Carter the Military did not even have enough ammo to practice with.
February 13, 2012 at 12:52 pm
The operative words in Kashi’s comment; enlightened and honest. Every one who has the vote also has the responsibility to be informed and not just follow the media’s bias.
January 17, 2012 at 9:40 am
Election time. Time for all politicians to go a-whoring!
They can all be bought if you can afford one.
January 16, 2012 at 5:10 pm
The entire government is a scam – far from what the founding fathers envisioned. I see most posters agree in some form or another. I hope you all remember this when it comes time to vote – and I hope you all vote. It will take every enlightened, honest person’s votes to override all the slugs the government has cultivated for its’ benefit.
January 16, 2012 at 1:58 pm
1) Two Constitutions…Lincoln was the last President under the Republic of which America was founded…The Constitution for the United States of America; during the Martial Law, at that time, it was changed, one little word that made us each chattel assets of the government and that word is “of”…you can find all you want to find out just by using the Search Engines…once you signed the BC that child is not yours if the government decides differently; Ethanol, how many of you know where the profits go…in to Obummer’s pocket and the founder of this crap. EPA screams about coal and the emissions of such…it takes twice as much coal to make 7/8 of a gallon gas and twice to three times as much water; then add $1.78 a gallon subsidy to this…figure it out…cars get 2 to 6 miles less per gallon so you gas up more often; it ruins engines life earlier so you buy a car more often…see the scenario here…look at Brazil and what Ethanol production has done there..deforestation is rampant and that takes the creatures out…they die and are dying..that is what can happen here…also, off subject, read about Chemtrails and you decide…
January 23, 2012 at 12:03 am

Oh yes, oh yes, they lie, they do and do it so good that we buy into it without thinking, for we have been taught to trust and on that they play us the fools that we somehow believe were not, yes they lie and lie so good that we somehow believe their not, for we have been taught to trust, this when we should be thinking for ourselves
should we not!
January 16, 2012 at 9:17 am
Yep, and not only do we pay China interest but 95% of everything in WalMart comes from China or an Asian country so we are paying twice; same with Mexico and we let Holder get away with running guns to the cartels…some government we have and was it not Gingrich that made fun of Ryan’s budget or was that Santorum..gee, I don’t know for sure but one of the candidates did and it was not Paul….
January 23, 2012 at 12:05 am
This makes me sad, and a little frightened. There are so many comments just restating and restarting the same stuff about your opinions about the problems with the government. I didn’t see any proposals for solutions.
January 16, 2012 at 8:51 am
One easy solution is vote Obama, Reid and Pelosi out of office.
January 16, 2012 at 11:48 am
A vote for Romney is a vote for more war and the privatization of Medicare. Americans don’t want these things, but Republican propaganda is effective. It will probably be close, unless a lot of people watch “When Mitt Romney Came to Town”.
January 17, 2012 at 5:08 pm
I do not know why this was blanked out..it is the truth..one moment he favors abortion, the next moment he does not; one moment he believes in the 1st and 2nd Amendments, then he puts in restrictions; he believes in and supports Obamacare after bankrupting his state when he was a governor…he is a big spender, big government and more of the same; he is a black sheep in white man’s skin…beware…………
January 23, 2012 at 12:28 am
DC will never vote term limits; that is up to each and every American; no more than two and if they disappoint in the first, then they are gone; knock the pay down about 50%, they pay for their Insurance, 401Ks and all else just like the everyday American that is fortunate if they even have a job. I am running for a US House and I will do a Contract with my state that says no more than two terms and 50% less pay and I will contribute as the average American does and take no perks with me when I am out…of course, that is, if elected..rather poor people have a hard time getting elected against those that have millions..but it is the common person, with little that needs to be into office, those with a good head and know about the meaning of life, survival and the willingness to serve her State and actually the USA as a whole…
January 23, 2012 at 12:18 am
If we openly state how we want to fix the problems, the government will come arrest us as terrorists. They’ve made free speech into a double edge sword. So therefore I will keep my opinions to myself.
January 17, 2012 at 12:37 pm
Pass legislation making all corporations convert to non-profit status within ten years. Then the focus can be on quality of life for Americans, instead of even more profit for the already wealthy. Don’t worry about getting arrested; nobody reads this stuff anyway.
January 17, 2012 at 5:11 pm
Stop immigration from all other nations would be a good start…If they cant support them self’s then don’t bring them here for the Americans to support.
January 21, 2012 at 2:55 pm
It is better to give one the tools to support them selfs than to do anything for them.
January 21, 2012 at 2:59 pm
One last comment from this old guy, 77 yrs young.. I’ll give up my SocSec right after you give up ALL your welfare payments…. OK??
January 15, 2012 at 9:17 pm
EVERYONE IN THE USA SHOULD LISTEN TO THIS, UNTIL THEY CAN RECITE IT BY HEART!!!
January 15, 2012 at 9:07 pm
Recently I heard on the news Obama is acting like a Monarch.It can’t be further from the thruth.To get an education thru affirmative action will not give Intelligence.He is acting like a two bit DICTATOR who is naming a bunch of Commisars (he calls them Zars ) to by-pass our elected government.I am supprised he did not suggested a permanent Presidency like Castro,Chavez Stalin etc….There is enough time to use Acorn with the Union bums to collect enough dead peoples signature and illegals to keep him in office for life.
January 15, 2012 at 4:06 pm
Try watching something besides Fox News.
January 17, 2012 at 5:14 pm

This may be one of the stupidest comments I’ve ever read.
January 21, 2012 at 12:27 pm
Criticizing the government!? Hey, that’s racist!
January 15, 2012 at 3:13 pm
I see where a well written comment was stricken..does this site support Romney? He is a flip flopper…and a big government candidate…again, the reply is cancelled because it is of Romney? Heah, that is not fair administrator!!!!!!!!!
January 23, 2012 at 12:30 am
It is a funny song but yet so sad that it is true. Government is suppose to represent the people not police them.
‘Welcome to Socialism”
You all pay so we all live poor except us politicians..
January 15, 2012 at 3:11 pm
yes BO can. He and the Dem’s can rip you off and ooops you can’t do anything about is. Ripped of millions of home owners out of their homes W/no recourse. Done f”ed every thing up in only 3 years, hmmmmm.
January 15, 2012 at 2:14 pm
Uh, Willard, it was the too big to fail bailed out banks that did the foreclosing. Apparantly the BO program to re-negotiate underwater mortgages wasn’t too effective, but it was the banks not the government that refused to negotiate and foreclosed instead. Sometimes on properties they didn’t even own! If we elect a Republican president this year, we can look forward to at least 4 more years of war to keep the military industrial complex well fed as well as privatization of medicare and social security. You’re going to be financially successful and not rely on these “welfare” programs, so I guess Romney’s your man.
January 17, 2012 at 5:20 pm
wasn’t it the government who forced the banks to accept the mortgage for the disadvantaged americans who couldn’t afford a home?
February 19, 2012 at 5:32 pm
I love the idea of Sara Palin and Michelle Bachman running together for President. They would change things around for the better. This current government needs to all be voted OUT. Terms should be limited. I hope everyone reads the Constitution and educates themselves, then do your Country a favor by VOTING all these crooks out off office!!
January 15, 2012 at 1:29 pm
I agree ….but the sadder harsh truth is that the vast majority of people would not have invested 15% of their earnings (or even the 7.5% they actually pay in). Then without it, there would be all these additional impoverished disabled and elderly people that the bleeding heart liberals would insist that we have to take care of ….and we can bet the cost of that would be some form of tax that exceeds 7.5%. . It’s a no win situation. I’m all for helping people who are in bad situations through no fault of their own…. But govt policies of helping everyone who screws up or just fails or refuses to help themselves is pure insanity. The challenge will always be how we discern the difference between the plain unfortunate and the blatantly undeserving. And that’s where some standards need to be developed if we are ever going to fix this thing and survive as a nation.
January 15, 2012 at 7:14 am
The Congress doesn’t even tell you that not only do they spend all our money…but they are allowed to buy “stock” based on “insider trading” and cannot be prosecuted for doing so! So when they pass laws that will “help” a business or industry, they can invest in that industry before the stock goes up…Additionally, Social Security is NOT AN ENTITLEMENT. We paid into all our working lives as did our employers…it should not be co-mingled with the General Revenue Fund. If it were a fund unto itself…we would all benefit! It doesn’t matter if one is a Dem or a Rep…they are all without a clue how most of us live, because the majority of them are MILLIONAIRES. Look it up!
January 14, 2012 at 3:06 pm
Eileen…Social Security IS an entitlement..what you and your employer paid was a TAX…and once the Gubmint gets it, it can do anything it wants with those funds. If you think it’s “your money”..go to your nearest SS office, and ask for a lump sum “withdrawal” of “your money…Let me know how that works out for you!
January 14, 2012 at 3:46 pm
SS did not start out that way. It has been changed by all the Presidents and they are spending it and more. If that money had
been put in to a trust fund like taxpayers were originally sold and told, there would be plenty of money for retirees. Some people didn’t live long enough to even collect. I’ve seen what can happen to money when it is invested conservatively over 20 years and it is
unbelievable. So don’t buy in to what the lawmakers are trying to sell you right now about this money collected. We can thank President Johnson for putting the funds in to the general fund and spending it on his “Great Society”!!!!!
January 17, 2012 at 4:45 pm
REALY !!!! Some one has to plan for are retirement….Most Americans don’t have a retirement plan. If it wasn’t for SS then the elder that fought for this country would already be dead from starvation. They risked there life’s for are country, but God forgive them if we give them SS. In the long run if there was no SS then the government would have to pay for the elder and disabled and the government would find some way of taking it from the people anyway.
January 21, 2012 at 3:21 pm
Connie – Palin and Bachmann would set the women’s movement back 40 years. If they would go back to school and study basic History, they might be able to contribute something of worth, but not as they are. Palin’s a moneygrubbing quitter.
CPTPHILB – We’ve paid into SS our entire lives. So you say that because it is a “tax”, it is OK that Gov’t mis-appropriate it. Then why are the right wing-nuts all in a tizzy about the Obamacare Insurance Mandate? Don’t you think it is smart that paying for your health care is not a “tax” so Gov’t can mis-spend it? Geez – the Gov’t gave a gift to the Insurance industry by mandating that we all buy their products. You’d think that the Republican’ts who benefit from the huge $$ coming from the Insurance lobby would be ecstatic. (they are, but they just can’t admit it).
January 22, 2012 at 7:15 pm
i agree with Dee Dee!!!!
January 14, 2012 at 1:53 pm
Oops. I wasn’t finished yet.
It’s time I got some of it back!
January 14, 2012 at 2:33 am
Love the song. I agree with the sentiment. I strongly disagree with the comments about Social Security. I am now retired, but paid into Social Security all of my working years. I am now getting just a small portion of those payments back. I would be way ahead had I been able to invest that money myself. My husband is still working at almost 70 because he loves his job, and still pays in to it. Because of his salary, we pay taxes on both of our SS payments, for a second time. Aren’t we lucky?! And we have to constantly worry about SS going broke because the Gvmt. keeps borrowing from it. I don’t consider SS an “entitlement.” It is my money over which I never had any control.
January 14, 2012 at 2:30 am
Good for you. I definitely feel for you guys. You would have been much better off inviting that money yourself. You pay 7.5% and your employer pays 7.5%, so that is 15% that you could have invested your entire life. You would have been much better off. Unfortunately, Social Security is a big ponzie scheme, It is a fraud. The Gov. leads us to believe that there is some account someplace with our money in it. This is not true. All of the money you and your husband has paid in is gone. There is nothing there. You can thank the Democrats for giving you a hard retirement. Sorry
January 14, 2012 at 8:57 am
I couldn’t imagine your fustigation, but were would you be if you did not pay in at all? When you were young would you of thought of retirement? The government should of addressed this issue decades ago. When they were taking money from SS; yet writing government checks for low income people there whole life’s.
January 21, 2012 at 3:33 pm
OBAMA CAN ! !
January 13, 2012 at 3:45 pm
So true. Make this a number 1 hit!
January 13, 2012 at 1:22 pm
Entitlement programs? we pay into that program which the government steals from continually and never pays it back. Fact. Well fare is not an entitlement program, but it supports welfare mother’s to keep milking off the system as well as their children who later collect SSI with out as much as an exam to determine whether that child is capable of holding a low wage job. The government under republican control for eight years has raided SS and used up a surplus from the clinton year’s to start a war based on false pretenses of weapons of mass destruction which turned out not to be true. We cant trust any one any more and the voter’s need to wake up and vote out the one’s who created this mess in the first place and start over. If we get into a scuffle with China than we can write off 1/3 or the debt to that country. So the question is: Who in the next 24 months can get their ( pardon my saying)shit together without Some one losing their job or their house and still have a place the enviromentely is still safe to live?
January 13, 2012 at 12:00 pm
Of course SS and Welfare are “Entitlement” programs…although I believe anyone would be hard pressed to explain how one is “entitled” to the labors of others. You paid a TAX (FICA)…you are paying for the people currently retired..it’s a ponzi scheme. (when started, there were over 120 people paying for 1 SS recipient…now it’s down to less than 3 to 1 !!) And if I were you, I’d read up on history as far as who raided what when…LBJ was the 1st to “raid” the SS “account”…it’s all tax money, and the Gubmint is going to do with it what it will….The only reason Clinton had a surplus was the Repub congress forced a balanced budget!! quick drinking the koolaid and do some research for yourself!
January 14, 2012 at 3:53 pm
Elizabeth – I don’t know where you got your facts but you are dead wrong! It was President Johnson who took the funds from the trust fund to pay for his “Great Society”. You can Google or Wikipedia that!
All the money accumulated when Clinton was in office came from the Dot Com businesses and went they went Dot Bomb so did the money and we headed in to a recession!!! those are facts.
January 17, 2012 at 4:49 pm
The government had been taking from SS for longer than 8 yrs. and your getting SS and well fare mixed up. They are two completely separate government programs.
January 21, 2012 at 3:43 pm
Same with Medicare…it is not an entitlement..people misuse words so often…why I do not know but have an idea: Medicare and SS we seniors are entitled to..that is right, entitled to..we paid into it with the law that said we would have something to live on as we aged; same with SS, we are entitled to it..entitlement is different..it is welfare..it is something that those getting it, get it for free, pay nothing and have to do nothing but report in each and every month that they did not work and had not income; take the word NATURAL…that means free, clean, came from naturally; naturalization is a whole different word..that is a legality..natural is not…it is tried and true…
January 23, 2012 at 12:24 am
Mike, you’re wrong. The military spends only about 4% of our total expenditures. Social Security is at the top of the list and then other entitlement programs.
January 13, 2012 at 11:00 am
SS is NOT an entitlement, I payed into it, my employer paid into it!!! So, it’s and insurance policy. I I died before I was able to collect MY money, then it goes to others.
January 14, 2012 at 1:39 pm
We all complain when the government takes care of those who cannot take care of themselves, like the sick, old, young, students, the consumer, the storm victim, etc. But very few complain or crack jokes when we bomb the beJesus out of some country that consistes of people of a different religion or color. How about a little balance here, or is that too much to ask. We spend more on bombs and bullets than we do on anything else.
January 13, 2012 at 6:16 am
You are so full of BS! The Fed spends far more money on entitlements than guns and bullets (Defense). The stimulus alone was about 2 times what the Defense Department gets in one year.
January 13, 2012 at 7:43 am
Check out libertarians for some consistency. Yes, it’s absurd to complain about your government stealing from you to help people and act like it’s perfectly fine for them to steal from you to kill people.
January 13, 2012 at 8:22 am
The more the government takes control over anything, the worse the situation gets. Has welfare improved the lot of the poor? NO! It’s EXACERBATES it and creates MORE poverty. Social Security? A Ponzi Scheme. Medicare? More fraud and higher costs. The postal service? It’s insolvent. Get government to stop buying votes with OUR money and make families take care of their own sick and old. We’d be able to afford it because we’d eliminate the high cost of medical care and get to keep most of our money to begin with. The consumer has courts for their protection. I see the need for state or federal oversight, but they are out of control and make it too expensive for companies to do business here. Worse, if you don’t manufacture anything, you will soon have no income. STUDENTS? I worked to pay for college and the the federal government keeps throwing OUR money at the “education problem” yet scores keep falling (even with reduced difficulty tests). The government which governs least, governs best and taxation for wealth redistribution is theft. If you disagree with that statement you are either dependent upon the wealth of others, a politician or an idiot.
January 14, 2012 at 6:58 am
Must be nice to live in your world. I’m a middle class working person that worked through college and still had to take loans to live. I’m still not wealthy enough to worry about the government taking my taxes for wealth redistribution, and I don’t depend on other wealth, nor am I a politician or an idiot. Welcome to the real world.
January 21, 2012 at 3:59 pm
Inasmuch as the defense of America is the ONLY required job of the federal government, all other ‘jobs’ should be far less of the budget. And we didn’t notice that the Germans and Italians were a different color or religion during WWII. Or don’t you read anything except the Dummycr@p talking points?
January 14, 2012 at 5:07 pm
The title should be OBAMA CAN.
January 13, 2012 at 1:18 am
It doesn’t matter who the politicians are. Government is force and violence.
January 13, 2012 at 8:17 am
I loved it!. It’s perfect for describing how people feel!
January 12, 2012 at 9:55 pm
Greg: You have to be a government worker to write such an inane comment. First, no private business would provide unsafe food as they would be out of business in a week. Second, if you think the Post Office runs better than Fed Ex, you are missing a few cells. The Post Office is one of the most inefficient government enterprises there is. You cannot compare sending a package for $5 with a mailed envelope. Its apple and oranges. Why do you think most businesses send out items by Fed Ex or by UPS and not the US Mail? It will get there on time and not be lost. And this baloney about people paying their fair share is right out of the Obama class warfare playbook. To him, anyone who is successful is not paying their fair share even though the top 1% of Americans pay 36% of all taxes, the top 5% pay 59% and the top 10% pay 70% of ALL the tax bills. The bottom 50% pay less than 3%. All those government agencies you refer to are used by all all 100% of us. So why do the top 50% pay for all government services and some people in the bottom 50% get money back from them as Earned Income Tax Credit, a government oxymoron. That is paying MORE than their fair share.
In Obama’s world you don’t pay your “fair share” if you are in the top 50% of wage earners. He wants you to pay more and give it to the 50% below you who “really deserve it” . They are not getting their “fair share” of the income. You did not really earn yours honestly if they don’t have as much as you.
January 12, 2012 at 6:50 pm
You’re so wrong on so many levels, it’s hard to comment.
January 13, 2012 at 11:43 am
I would have to agree that people should have to work for there money. But, you must be one of the upper class because you wouldn’t be commenting like this if you were from the middle working class of America. Lets see you loose your job and see who’s there to feed you, make your house pymts, see what happens when you cant afford health insurance. Your views would quickly change. Not all of the 50% below the line is dead beets; as you make it sound. You can not pay what you don’t have.
January 21, 2012 at 4:14 pm
those politicians need to actually use their brains for once, republican, democrat or inbetween. they need to consider us, both parties are fails lately.
January 12, 2012 at 4:15 pm
Ethan, On purpose, by design. They CAN’T be this brainless, could they?
January 13, 2012 at 10:33 am
Would private enterprise provide us with unsafe food if they could make a profit doing it? Absolutely–they do it even when there’s a law against it and they could go to jail for it. I’m glad we have a government that will enforce those laws and put the offenders in jail. Same goes for air traffic safety and building code regulations. And next time my house catches fire or someone breaks into my house, I’ll call the fire or police department. If some other country invades ours, I’m confident that our government-controlled military will destroy the invaders. If I want to mail something, I could take it, along with $5.00+, to my local FedEx office, or I could put a 44-cent stamp on it and leave it in my mailbox to be picked up. I gladly pay my fair share for the government services that make life better for us all, and I wish that there weren’t so many loopholes to enable other people to avoid paying their fair share. Go ahead and hate the government all you want, but I bet you won’t ever be fool enough to try to do without it.
January 12, 2012 at 4:03 pm
“Go ahead and hate the government all you want, but I bet you won’t ever be fool enough to try to do without it.” Nobody is trying to remove the government, all you Lefties. We are looking for smaller, CONSTITUTIONAL Government. Not a bunch of old cronies lining their pockets and their buddies with our money, and just so you know, many of us know it is anybody, Dem or Rep.
January 13, 2012 at 10:18 am
greg, what kind of cell phone do you have?
February 19, 2012 at 6:06 pm
Joe, if it weren’t for the corporations and the rich paying the lions’ share of the taxes in this country, the roads you drive on, as well as many other things we all use, the military that protects us and keeps us free, as well as public sector jobs, would not exist today. Blame the politicians for wasting our tax money and for their constant bickering, which blocks needed legislation. I, for one, am grateful to the corporations and the rich for all they do. Hope you can feel the same one day.
January 12, 2012 at 3:03 pm
Couple of points: In the mid-1800′s Alexis de Tocqueville prophisied that while democracy was perhaps the best form of government, it’s weakness would be exposed when the electorate realized it could vote itself benefits.
That day is here. Just review the largesse President Obama has shown to his ‘to the left’ constituents.
Seems to me the key to America’s greatness was that at a time when in Europe the class system predicted your future, the democracy of America allowed for people to be free to dream
but more than that …with sufficient, skill, intelligence and labor,
to actually achieve their dreams.
Predicated on this perspective, my vote is not for the redistribution of wealth, but for the assurance of equal opportunity.
Beyond that, and because of the observations of de Tocqueville, I would restrict the privilege of voting only to those who have — by way of tax payments — invested in America’s well being.
Thank you for your time.
January 12, 2012 at 2:43 pm
WOW….That sounds like communism at it best to me….
January 21, 2012 at 4:22 pm
The Corporations are taking it all. The upper 1 % makes 46% of the income. In 2007 CEO’s of America paid more to themselves in bonus then into all of their workers pension plans. So I person gets more than everyone else get for retirement after working, 30, 40, 50 years.
Both parties have sold out to the filthy rich, but the republicans have done so completely. At least the democrats are trying to do a little something for the middle class.
Wake fellow American workers (and what to be workers).
January 12, 2012 at 11:45 am
I’m as middle class as they come, but all of this focus on how much the “rich” make is getting nuts. Sure, there are some that are completely out of touch with reality. But, the rich are also the ones that are taking the risks to start businesses that provide jobs to the middle class. It’s not “wrong” to be rich! When you start throwing out those stats like “The upper 1 % makes 46% of the income”, you need to follow that up with how much of the US incomes taxes that same 1% is paying. I think you’d see that the 1% you referenced also pays the majority of the tax revenue in the US as well. Before you go and say “Well, they can afford it!”, just remember that there is someone else that is worse off than you are and they could say the same about you! Do the rich have too much power? In some cases, yes. But, if we, as a country, decide to cripple those people, the investment into job creating businesses will continue to decrease and we will quickly become a country that is so dependent on the governmnet for everything that the freedoms that we have fought for will quickly disappear. We’ve already become a people of entitlement, in that so many think it’s their right to own a home, drive a nice car, go to college, etc. Where are the days when you work hard, save up and possibly be able to afford something nice?? They are gone. People think that just because they exist, they should enjoy the same lifestyle as everyone else. Not true! You should live within your means; save where you can; and work to achieve your goals.
January 12, 2012 at 11:56 am
Out of all the remarks on this page this is the closest to the way I look at government and rich/poor. We the Americans are the ones feeding into this money driven, greedy, wasteful, and self gratifying government. We are paying for the American dream… 10 thousand in credit card debt, cars and homes beyond are means, and getting second or third jobs to just pay the intrest/taxs on it all. This is how the rich are getting richer. People trash the rich but don’t complain about there jobs making good money, nice big house, car, money in the bank. Don’t they realize they are the ones that pay for the rich to take that 10 thousand dollar lunch.
January 21, 2012 at 4:42 pm
Joe it is none of your business how much money private citizens make. Mind your business. If you want to get educated and start a business or run a corporation and make thousands and millions you have the opportunity in this country to do that. If you dont that is your choice too. You should be more upset that 46% of Americans dont pay any taxes at all and most of lthem are drawing some sort of income from the American People(US Government). If you are one of those Occupy Peoole go take a shower change your clothes and go look for a job and stop expecting other people to take care of you.
January 12, 2012 at 2:13 pm
Joe, that 1% pays 72% of the taxes (while making 46% of the income???) And here we go again, arguing D and R, There are a LOT of filthy rich Lefties, maybe more so than Conservatives. And you need to wake up if you think the left is trying to do a little something for the middle class. Keep drinking your punch.
January 13, 2012 at 10:24 am
Sorry, top 10% pay 72%. Top 1% pay 36%.
January 13, 2012 at 10:39 am
So, Joe Middleclass, tell me that if you were offered a 6 or 7 figure salary for doing your job that you’d refuse because you refuse to be “filthy rich?” Right. Yes, there are the mega-greedy amongst us who never make enough money or have enough things to satisfy them. But there are also very hard working people who happen to be well-compensated for their efforts. According to your logic, no matter how hard you work toward bettering yourself and making a success of yourself in the workplace, you should get a small salary. That way, you won’t offend anyone. What a load! More power to anyone who honestly succeeds at the highest level. America used to be the land of opportunity for everyone. Now, if one makes something of themselves, they are reviled. Get off your couch, get educated and work hard. See how that works for you instead of sitting on your can and bitching about others who accomplish things in life.
January 28, 2012 at 1:38 pm
First, we need to vite out of office the “experienced” long term Washington malingerers. The get re-lected over end over because they claim to have “experience”. That translates to how well they know how to keep their hnds in your pockets. Second, we need to send a strong message that clearly says,” THE GENERAL PUBLIC IS NOT YOUR PRIVATE PIGGY BANK”. Get rid of the waste in your offices first and in your departments first and fire the excessive, wasteful people that do nothing but take up space. Keep sending them e-mails and messages yo do their jobs or get out. Tell the meddling housewives that make up the Tea Party to get out of politics, buy themselves a new vacuum cleaner and clean up their own homes.
January 12, 2012 at 5:41 am
You had me in agreement right up to where you displayed alarming ignorance regarding the TEA Party. Do you know what TEA stands for? Taxed Enough Already. Do you not agree with that? And come on, meddling housewives? Really? Are you that clueless? How about concerned, actively participating citizens? Oh, wait… Maybe that is how you would describe the OWS crowd. Other than the vast divide between their objectives, and their personal hygiene, what’s the difference?
January 12, 2012 at 11:10 am
Cage, Really? You are a Teapartyer and do not even Know it. Stop absorbing the B.S. from Pravda. The Tea Party is made up of many DIFFERENT and AWOKEN people that are VERY concerned about the hands that are in our pockets. WAKE UP!!! and all you like her. Read the Constitution and Bill of Rights, you might get a surprise!
January 13, 2012 at 10:30 am
You don’t have a clue. You obviously have your TV on 24/7 to MSNBC. The Tea Party is trying to do just what you wrote – get the Government out of our pocketbooks! Yet, you show your total ignorance of them by including them in your list of who to blame. Meddling housewives? You are totally clueless. With people as easily as brainwashed by the media as you, it’s no wonder that our country is in the trouble it is in. Educate yourself for pete’s sake!
January 28, 2012 at 1:42 pm
I was looking at my last pay check for 2011 and added all my tax deductions. Then I divided my tax dedications by the my weekly paycheck amount. It takes 14.3 weeks of work just to pay the taxes deducted from my check. Not to mention sales tax, gas tax, property tax, alcohol tax, license plate tabs, random service taxes, etc…
After I or “we” pay all these taxes every year and every day of our lives what is the GOV doing for us? Not a god damn thing. Leave my money alone and let me spend it as I see fit. Let me meet my financial obligations and maybe I wouldn’t have to put the 75k in student loans my wife and I have in forbearance because we just had a baby and had to go single income household.
Sick and tired of the self serving GOV taking all money money and giving it to themselves and lazy worthless add nothing to society people.
Want to fix this country stop robbing the citizens and making their lives harder. Stop telling people you know how to spend THEIR hard earned money better than they do. I SICK of it.
There will be a revolution because this country, this GOV needs to be abolished and rebuilt according to the constitution. We need to end this social engineering and stop letting the GOV turn us against each other because that’s what they are doing.
Whatever, I could go on and on but unfortunately it does not matter because like myself everyone that works for a living is too damn tired from grinding day in and day out to stand up and have his or her voice heard. All we can do now is try to hold on to what little we have left before the GOV tries to take that away from us too.
Unless something changes, there is no way to win at this point.
January 12, 2012 at 5:03 am
Hypnocoosh, It is IMPERATIVE that something changes. You wrote “There will be a revolution because this country, this GOV needs to be abolished and rebuilt according to the constitution.” The change has to start with more and more people Waking Up! Wake them up! Fortunately our Founding Fathers gave US, We The People, the means with which to abolish our government when it becomes too powerful and allknowing (Elitists). Read the Constitution, everybody, and get educated, make up for what you were not taught in the Public School System!
January 13, 2012 at 10:48 am
frist the people are the goverment those a o in washintion are the cruck we haired to repercint us so as long as we do noting we are at fuilt for what ever happens

January 11, 2012 at 1:17 pm
This is Awesome. I love it. You could not put it any better.
January 11, 2012 at 1:10 pm
The government sure can… do as it wants.
The answer is smaller government, so it can do less.
January 11, 2012 at 12:31 pm
Umm, never have heard of any right wing activist judges, Dave. What planet have you been living on?
January 11, 2012 at 12:25 pm
Ron Paul’s campaign should use this song. He is THE anti-establishment modern day Defender of the Constitution.
January 11, 2012 at 8:23 am
I do agree with this guy. It is the governments fault that we are in this situation,but let’s face it, we are the ones to blame for this mess because we voted for the losers and have nothing to show for either. What we need to do is vote these people out and find some who are more inline with smaller government and lower taxes. We also need some politicians who have the balls to stand up and stand for what is needed and not what is not needed.( like more pork spending).
January 11, 2012 at 6:10 am
Amen!! Gone are the days when politicians run for office for betterment of the people (this statement is directed at both democrats AND republicans). These days, they are all in it to get re-elected. As I get older, term limitations are more and more attractive. But, if they don’t pass a law mandating it, we (as a collective) can mandate it at the ballot box! It’s our duty to vote. If we don’t, then we should keep our mouths shut because obviously we don’t care enough about the state of our country. Thanks for your post, Scott.
January 12, 2012 at 12:06 pm
The Republican Convention is a JOKE. They want the same thing the Democrats do, the NEW WORLD ORDER. This whole election is one big sham. Romney and Gingrich are bought and paid for. This is just a dog and pony show for our amusement.Hells bells, it was the Republicans that stuck a knifer in Herman Cains back.Both parties have the same agenda. Want to shake things up, make this election go viral.?? Get Sara Palin and Michelle Bachman to run together. You will see Democrats and Republicans pissing themselves, and crying foul.Those clowns in DC are scared to death of Sara Palin, and with good reason. She won`t play with the big boys. They cannot buy her off either. Thats why they fear her. She is smart, fearless, and goes straight for the GONADS. Want to see the stock market go crazy, bankers pissing themselves, just turn Sara Palin and Michelle Bachman loose. They will make Romney and Gingrich pack it in and go home . Voter fraud, a thing of the past. Not enough voter fraud to cover a LANDSLIDE VICTORY. Trust me on this.
January 11, 2012 at 3:12 am
It is so true loved the song! Hate the fact that it is true. We have GOT to get out and vote the most conservative people in every branch of government. READ THE BOOK ATLAS SHRUG if you think liberalizam or Communisom or Marks’s or Obamaism is what you want. We will all be in slaved for eternity. Do you want that for your grandchildren. Yea it would be nice in some ways to be one of the millions whom don’t work and get Government hand out and live the easy lazy life. But if you keep taxing all the rich broke eventually there will be know one left to tax. Then what? Wake up America.
January 11, 2012 at 12:01 am
A lot of you have made heart felt comments here, and I can relate to that. BUT, most of you still don`t get it. The Democrats, and the Republicans both have the same goal. The Republicans would rather the Democrats took us all kicking and screaming into the NEW WORLD ORDER!! Then when things don`t pan out for them at a later date, the Repulicans can say they tried to save us. Make no mistake, this is what both parties want. The President is nothing more than a center piece.He takes his orders from the ruling elite in the shadows .The bankers of the world, and the UN call the shots, he just does what he is told to do. For a real chance to save this country, and our Republic from a CIVIL WAR, we need to get Sara Palin to run with Machelle Bachman. Those clowns in DC are terrified of Sara. If she threw her hat in the ring, most likely Martial Law would be imposed, because the dimwits in DC are that afraid of her. They might even arrange for a new hairdo like they did with Kennedy.Sara does not play well with the big boys in DC. Voter fraud would be eliminated. Not enough fraud to cover a landslide election.When she is elected, she should incarcerate all 435 members, and hold emergency elections for new members. Charge those in jail with TREASON. Execute them on live TV for the world to see. Yes, they will get a fair trial, then we will execute them. The military should be ordered to take Obummer and his majesty into custody, for the same fate. Thats just my opinion, while I can still say it.
January 10, 2012 at 2:51 pm
We need Ron Paul to straight this mess out-We dont need the same old same old
January 10, 2012 at 12:38 pm
Sad, sad world Obama has made for us to live in now…..can’t understand why he won’t protect TX boarder, why he won’t read the correct that Obama care or throw it out, why he, why he is traveling around and not in the White House doing his job…..isn’t that what he is getting paid for, why he broke our need for a Day of Prayer but saw to it that the Muslins did in his back yard,. He feels he needs another four years! Hate to tell him that the USA has had enough of his broken promises and lies. Praying that God will bless America with a “Clean House Election” in 2012. .
January 9, 2012 at 7:19 pm
YOu can’t understand why our border laws arent being enforced?
It is because that is the driving force that is driving middle class labor wages into the ground. it is all being masked by their claims of competing with a global economy but what people failed to see is that WE were THE Consumers of world goods, WE could have kept tariffs in place and yes things would have cost us more to buy but it would have kept jobs and manufacturing here in the states along with our hard working middle class consumers driving our own economy.
Instead, OUR government has lowered tariffs on imports to help out big business and the world has now helped us right out of our jobs.
If things are to get any better in this country for “The Majority” then tariffs on imports need to be in place, no tax breaks for any part of any business that has been imported. It would be a hard road, but things are that far out of wack now and there will continue to be a lot of hurt before things get any better.
January 10, 2012 at 2:21 pm
Maybe, instead of politicians, we need a computer to run the country.
January 9, 2012 at 4:09 pm
Computers are loaded and mastered by humans. You may want to rethink your comment.
January 11, 2012 at 8:07 am
The trouble with our politicians and their parties is they don’t want to share the glory!
January 9, 2012 at 4:02 pm
Well folks, today our national debt became larger than our GDP. This is about the same time Europe started having problems. If our politicians don’t start working together, and put country over party, we’re all surely going to pay a very heavy price!
January 9, 2012 at 3:47 pm
Yes vote everyone of them out. I have a sign I put in my yard for every election cycle with the word VETO vertically, where each capital letter stands for a word. It reads as follows:
I really believe this is the only way things will change. But the problem is most members of the House are is what is called ‘Safe Districts’. This is because most people believe ‘THEIR’ representative is good, but all the rest are corrupt. Come on folks, you have to be wiling to clean up your own back yard, This Not In My Backyard (NIMBY) is at the root of the problem. If the voters are unable to take control, why do you think the politicians will change, especially your politicians will change. We came close to term limits back when Ross Perot was running and we could get close again, IF VOTERS WOULD REALIZE THEIR REPS ARE CORRUPT AS EVERYONE ELSE!! Thinks about it.
January 9, 2012 at 9:31 am
Ron Pilot, you wrote “We came close to term limits back when Ross Perot was running and we could get close again, IF VOTERS WOULD REALIZE THEIR REPS ARE CORRUPT AS EVERYONE ELSE!!” I’m not corrupt, did you mean “AS EVERYONE ELSEs!! (rep)?
January 9, 2012 at 8:12 pm
You said what I have said for a few years now. Everyone thinks THEIR Congressman is wonderful. It is the OTHER guys that are so bad. Well that is wrong!!! I am going to vote em all out. I am most afraid, however, that a third party candidate will do a “Ross Perot” as I call it and elect the president once again. Perot elected Bill Clinton all by himself.
January 10, 2012 at 9:35 am
yep, other than our food, water and air being poisoned – Life is Great>
January 9, 2012 at 9:25 am
How to kill 11 million people (from the book). ——–Lie to them. This is how the Nazis did it in WW2. Beware folks – vote out ANY liars – impeach liars! We can ALL agree on this one!
January 9, 2012 at 6:50 am
Well, that would be easy. Then we could elect a whole new batch of liars, right?
January 13, 2012 at 2:24 pm
ONE change in our law could correct our problems with our elected officials. TERM LIMITS, TERM LIMITS. That would remove 90% of the career politicians. And common since will once again rule rather than, laws made to protect the politicans, give them special powers, give them life time benifits for doing nothing, etc, etc. Most of them say and do what ever is necessary to get re-elected, not what is in the best interest of the people over the long run. We have to elect politicains who will vote for TERM LIMITS. We need to ask our politicians if they support TERM LIMITS, if they give you the excuse “We need politicians who have experience”. Tell them that is correct but it is experience in living with the common man, not in being a politician. Please keep asking for TERM LIMITS, TERM LIMITS.
January 9, 2012 at 6:38 am
Someone mentioned term limits. Just so you know, we use term limits every time we vote. Does that explain anything?? Maybe more people should start voting, and paying attention. Just a thought, food for the brain.
January 11, 2012 at 3:18 am
EXACTLY!! You are right on the money! WE, the people, set the term limits via the ballot box!
January 12, 2012 at 12:28 pm
85% of our Congress will continue to deceive us as it benefits them and their families financially. We need to vote all of the current congressmen and senators out of office (except the Tea Partiers) because none of them want to follow the constitution, balance the budget, quit spending money we don’t have, etc…they just want pay raises and life-long benefits for themselves. We’ve got a lot of things to change to get our country back and the first step is to get all of the “old school” bums out of office as soon as possible! Doesn’t matter if they are Dems or Repubs….we need all new politicians to make the changes that are necessary to keep America free from political bondage! God Bless America!
January 8, 2012 at 8:17 pm
We don`t need to vote them out of office Walter, we need to jail them. Just like any other thief , they need to pay there debt to society. If push comes to shove, they need to be charged with treason, then shot on national tv so no one else will ever think of screwing another American taxpayer.Its high time we took this country back. Both parties want the same thing, NEW WORLD ORDER. They are going to take us kicking and screaming into it. This is OUR COUNTRY, and we need to show these fools we mean business. It won`t be easy, probably a lot will die on both sides, but if we don`t fight for our Country, our Freedom, and our Liberty, then we deserve everything we get. May God still bless America, heaven knows we don`t deserve it.

Yes, and they programmed the children for years, “we are doing this for your protection!” Chemtrails, read about them, they are worldwide! MAke your own decision about them…most every morning they cover the sun by ten in WY……..they poison the lungs and nasal passages slowly!
January 23, 2012 at 12:37 am
TERM LIMITS – after 2 elections, you are unable to run for your current office. To run for another office, you have to wait 6 years at least. Pay for being in congress or as president – minimum wage. No paid-for-by-taxpayers healthcare or any other benefits. Only able to accept $1,000 or less one-time-only campaign donation from any supporter.
January 28, 2012 at 1:53 pm
American politicians don’t want to become politicians for life just becuase it’s easy and the perks are great…. they also do it so they can promote their own personal beliefs and not those of their constituents.
January 8, 2012 at 11:22 am
Don’t forget to include the far left media in the firing frenzy!
January 7, 2012 at 11:50 pm
Yes, Fox News.
January 10, 2012 at 4:19 pm
I wish we could fire a few thousand far left teachers and college professors.
January 7, 2012 at 11:32 pm
Unfortunately, they are everywhere!
January 7, 2012 at 11:19 pm
I’m from the south and we have plenty of them down here too!
January 7, 2012 at 10:49 pm
You need to be a guest at the Republican Convention to help get the word out!!
January 7, 2012 at 9:26 pm
Hey guys, don’t forget to vote out all these left wing activist judges who don’t follow the law and legislate from the bench.
January 7, 2012 at 4:39 pm
The only problem with that, (and maybe it’s because I’m from Chicago), is nobody runs against them.
January 7, 2012 at 7:54 pm
Don’t forget about all those right wing activist judges who don’t follow the law or precedents and legislate from the bench, disregarding even the Constitution!
January 8, 2012 at 9:02 pm
Dave, what are you talking about?
January 9, 2012 at 8:16 pm
To Dave: Yes, we have some self justifying judges, prosecuting attorneys, and lawyers out there. They dont follow the law or constitution. They do as they please. Esp in a commonwealth state.
January 21, 2012 at 5:17 pm
If you voted for Obama you voted for Big government, Big long term debt, and redistribution of wealth. I will not be hurt by this since I am 72 but my grandkids will along with the ignorant selfish beneficaries of ‘short term’ hand out solutions. Remember ‘short term gain = long term pain” . Out future has been badly damaged by this turnover of our Democratic Republic to a Socialist style administration. As an immigrant I love competition , hard work and the rewards that come from it. Save our country and bring back the free enterprise ,competitive, benevolent capitalism we once enjoyed. Good Bless the return to our principles and our constitution.
January 7, 2012 at 2:31 pm
AMEN!!! I am SO happy that my Parents are not alive to see all of this MESS!!! They were also LEGALLY naturalized citizens.PROUD AMERICANS!!! God help us all.

You seem to forget who got use in this mess, Bush.
January 10, 2012 at 4:38 pm
you seem to forget that the nit wit in the white house has put us in the mess we are in. Him and his cohorts, the Democrats who controled the House and Senate. Oh, let’s bail out the car manufacturersand oh, how about we bail out some banks, oh and how about Wall Street. Next these dummies will be bailing out EXXON-MOBIL OIL CO. If you remember right, Obama said he thinks this country needed change and guess what. Under his term, that’s about all I have left in my pocket. How about you?
January 10, 2012 at 6:45 pm
Really, Bill? Hasn’t the “it’s Bush’s fault” been played out? Come on, man!
January 12, 2012 at 12:32 pm
We had better soon come to our senses. We are still living in Sunnybrook Farms and laughing at ourselves. Our Constitution is now null and void, we are vying with Cuba for a higher standing as a Banana Republic. Obama will be Dictator in Chief for the rest of most of our lives. Thanks to the useful fools and idiots who voted for him the first time.
January 7, 2012 at 1:32 pm
I don’t know about the “holy Book” Al Demarest, however, the book that Obama follows by the Qu’ran does tell its followers to deceived the infidels by any means.
January 6, 2012 at 11:11 pm
Mako, Al is referring to his “Holy Book” as the Qu’ran or maybe Cloward and Piven’s (sp?) book.
January 7, 2012 at 3:07 pm
Do Not Blame BHO , he’s only doing what his “Holy Book” says is
ok to do. Lie if necessary, to succeed!
January 6, 2012 at 8:41 pm
A good start on a fix would be term limits and a balanced budget amendment.
January 6, 2012 at 6:28 pm
I agree with Clint Eastwood who said ” the guys that won WW2 are all gone,and now the country’s being run by a bunch of high school twits!” What everhappened to the old type of politician,both democrat and republican, who could hammer out a compromise in fifteen minutes.They put their country first, not their party.Maybe it’s time we start electing a new type of politician.
January 6, 2012 at 6:13 pm
Kitty….what you say is all well and good but these are government jobs that pay big bucks and these people most likely have families who depend on them. We can’t shame them to go into another line of work. What we need is a Leader who will shrink the size of government big time, get rid of all these unconstitutional bureaucracies and that’s Ron Paul.
January 6, 2012 at 4:26 pm
More vidios like this one would be great, and might even do some good.
January 6, 2012 at 4:14 pm
The Young man does a fantastic job on this.Sammie Davis might be proud of him, What do you think folks?
January 6, 2012 at 4:05 pm
I miss Tom Leher……..HE WAS THE BEST……..
January 9, 2012 at 4:47 pm
Very good! Would be excellent if Tim put in the part about how government enforcers are what turn all those many harm-describing words into the REAL HARM that they are. People could – and would – ignore all those words if there were far fewer individuals willing to enforcer them; individuals willing to initiate physical harm. Enforcers are KEY to ALL the harm caused by governments, both at home and abroad.
Dissuade those you know from being or remaining enforcers. For those not persuaded by reasoned logic, use shame, shunning and even ostracism – all with long histories of persuading those whose actions are unacceptable. It is also referred to as negative Social Preferencing. This technique is also appropriate for those who support/enable the enforcers, whether staff personnel or even an enforcer’s family/friends. Don’t simply complain/rant, demonstrate displeasure towards the key to all of government, anywhere by withdrawing all voluntary association with the enforcers.
January 6, 2012 at 11:44 am
To Libby Sue and the other indoctrinated progressives, listen to Bill. We’re fifteen trillion plus in debt , and that is rising quickly. Next year add another one and a half trillion. Don’t know if we can survive this or not, but one thing is for certain, if we don’t elect a more conervative president with some fiscal responsibility and a senate that won’t block common sense bills, we will go bankrupt. When that happens, social security stops, medicare stops, and all other entitlements stop.No more borrowing from other countries, and the printing presses will have to stop because the dollar will no longer be viable as the global currency, but not before the gov’t. prints so much money that it causes hyper-inflation. What I’m saying is not a scare tactic; it’s happened before in several other countries, Greece, just being the latest. This always happens when politicians buy votes through entitlement spending and socialism takes hold. Let’s all vote with our common sense in 2012.
January 6, 2012 at 10:58 am
Hey Libby Sue, it’s not your fault you think that way. No doubt you were educated in the public school system where they start indoctrinating at a young age. They want you to think that way. Then they can control how you think and vote. The people who vote for social programs are the people the government tells they can help. How are we doing so far? 15 trillion in debt and you want the government to keep spending? It’s not their money. The reason we are such a great nation is we are prosperous. That is not a bad word either. You wouldn’t have half the things you do without American businesses producing wealth. There is opportunity for all here in this country. So when people tell you you need to share your wealth think long and hard about giving it to the government because ti WAS YOUR money.
January 6, 2012 at 8:44 am
Marguerite thatcher said ” socialism is great until you run out of other people’s money. Listen to Maggie, Mr. President!
January 5, 2012 at 9:22 pm
This president doesn’t HEAR anything but what his “inner voice – SOCIALISM” tells him!
January 7, 2012 at 2:28 pm
OUTSTANDING musical summary of today’s reality!!
January 5, 2012 at 9:19 pm
If the Obamanation gets re-elected, I’m moving out of the country because there apparently were too many uneducated, ignorant people in this country!!
January 5, 2012 at 8:52 pm
Unfortunately Debbie, where would you go? This is We The Peoples’ waning chances at recovering America and its’ magic. That involves EDUCATING as many people as we can before it is too late. We have been “snowed” for so long it isn’t even funny. I myself feel I only woke up 5 years ago. Americas’ pensions, unfunded liabilities, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security… it’s overwhelming and unsustainable, has to change and get fixed. Unfortunately too much evil out there. Time to stand up and fight for what is right, which can only be done with numbers. Open dialogues with friends, family, etc. Wake ‘em up!
January 6, 2012 at 9:35 am
Thank you, American school system (i.e.BIG GOVERNMENT SCHOOL SYSTEM!)
January 7, 2012 at 2:29 pm
When ideology blocks common sense, failure follows…
January 5, 2012 at 8:47 pm
Christian Republicans give more in charity that any other group. They help the poor in churches, fraternal organizations, soup kitchens, large gifts to causes, as do many many other Americans. Those who don’t mind being taxed to death want someone else to pick up the tab and the responsibility and allow bureaucrats to decide. Crazy. I give and I want to give where I think it’s best used. Washington is too far removed from my community.
January 5, 2012 at 7:45 pm
If obama gets elected again this country will probably never recover. But he can be voted out of office and we can be rid of him. The sad thing is we can never be rid of the socialist idiots who will vote for him and people like him. If they are so in love with socialism, move to China.
January 5, 2012 at 6:11 pm
Katygirl – why move – it’s getting pretty “cozy” here in the FORMER U.S. of A.!
January 7, 2012 at 2:32 pm
Dotco, where is it “cozy”? Maybe I’ll go there.
January 7, 2012 at 3:12 pm
It’s sad to criticise our government for being the most benovolent country on the face of the earth. Caring for people in need is the basic value for our nation and especially for Christians (“love God…loved your neighbor”). I AM PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN and for our government and Christians who stand with her in support of people in need.
January 5, 2012 at 2:31 pm
I agree with you 100%. I don’t understand how ignorant some people are. I think some people lost their moral values and I do not think they are true American. America I know is the compassionate, smart, open minded and very welcoming. I hope we get back to reality and not to forget our values just and be influenced by these ignorant people. Yes, Government is corrupted and that applies to both Republican and Democrat. People stop blaming the government. You elected them! You don’t like them vote for someone else and stop playing the blame game.
January 5, 2012 at 7:00 pm
And Sam, You agree with that? I don’t understand how ignorant some people are. I think you guys are in the right place, but the government is not the answer, WE are. America IS NOT The Government, it is the PEOPLE that make America, thanks to our Founding Fathers.
January 6, 2012 at 11:48 am
Jim Wilson, It is the PEOPLE of our benevolent country that make it that way, not the government. We all need to care for people in need in our own way. The pleasure and reward in giving is what make it special. You’re ilk believe the all powerful, honest, fair government has to do the giving? After the money (our money) runs through their grimy little fingers and they decide where it goes, (often to “buddies” in what is called Crony Capitalism), often with some twists? Caring for people in need is the basic value for THE PEOPLE of our nation to accomplish. I know if I had more in my pocket, it would allow me to help where I see fit, and that makes me feel good. I don’t need my big brother or my parents doing that for me, do I?
January 6, 2012 at 11:43 am
GREAT SONG! GREAT MESSAGE!!
January 5, 2012 at 2:07 pm
you have an affirmative action president!!
would you want an affirmative action heart doctor??
January 5, 2012 at 12:47 pm
I this it’s shameful that people don’t want to pay their taxes or to help the poor. Perhaps he will use some of his earnings to get a decent haircut and a presentable wardrobe. Clever song with a terrible Message.
January 5, 2012 at 9:22 am
I think it’s a shame that so many think it’s a “duty” to pay taxes to a government to solve problems that is cannot solve. The root of many of our problems are individuals who refuse to learn a real skill or work hard. The government cannot give them these things, which are necessary to earn a living. I’m glad to help those in need but I refuse to accept your view that this can only be done via taxes and the government. What this country needs is a return to a time when individuals help each other directly and we stop relying on politicians who make promises they cannot fulfill if we only give them more resources.
January 5, 2012 at 12:33 pm
LibbySue, why should Americans be forced to pay for other people through taxes? That’s not what taxes are for. If you are so gung ho about helping the poor, please explain to me why liberals give 30% less to private charities than conservatives do? Conservatives like me do not need to have money ripped from our hands to be charitable, it’s in our nature. It’s the selfish liberals in our society that have to be FORCED to help others!
January 5, 2012 at 12:38 pm
LibbySue, are you kidding me? We are well on our way to being a Nation that is an unfunctional society. When the population of persons who believe its just not worth it to have to work hard in order to earn what they have overtakes the number of persons in our society that are footing the bill for everyone else the whole society fails. I know the arguments for a more socialist society that works (Germany). However they have developed a cultural norm to Civil Service for the majority of their citizens and do not “penalize” their overachievers.
January 5, 2012 at 3:53 pm
Giving our money in taxes does not help the poor. That tax money then being given to the so called poor only enables them, like more alcohol does an alcoholic . There are the truly poor through no fault of there own and they should be helped. But the majority of the poor are there by choice and are too lazy, and feel they are owed something to do any thing to climb out of there situation. But then thats the strategy this Marxist, Obama, his Czars and the rest of the Liberal Progressives in Washington are using to turn our country into a dependancy population. Guess what LibbySue, we won’t let that happen.
January 7, 2012 at 4:38 pm
Vote in 2012 to fundamentally change things AGAIN! Sing it again,Tim!
January 5, 2012 at 6:11 am
I haven’t seen any one yet that I’d vote for, no body in heir right mnd would step into this mess. The one we have has broken every promise he made to us. He’s for the rich get richer the poor be dammed. don’t be fooled by thge smooth talk
January 4, 2012 at 6:55 pm
MERRY BELATED CHRISTMAS!!
January 4, 2012 at 11:31 am
We need to get back to what made this country great. Basic human rights and doing whats right. This is the United States Of America and we have traditions and beliefs. Welcome to join us but you can’t change us.
January 4, 2012 at 10:23 am
I hate to rain on your parade Mr. Osborn, but we are not the United States of America any longer. We are the North American Union. Did you forget that George Bush and Mexico and Canada signed those papers behind the Congress back. We are the North american Union now, and thats what that 8 lane super highway they stopped in Texas was all about. When they declare Martial Law, and they will, it will not be just UN Troops on our streets. There will be Mexican soldiers, and Canadian soldiers also. Our Military will not imprision American citizens, but they won`t stop it either. They will stand down. You might want to think about that sir.
January 11, 2012 at 3:37 am
I don’t understand how the Republican farmers in Idaho who don’t plant a crop and still get paid by the GOVERNMENT! Please explain. How about our Congressment who have FREE MEDICAL and oppose medical care for the public? Please explain…
January 3, 2012 at 8:42 pm
Republican farmers? Where did you get that info? Are all farmers republican? What a wacko!
January 5, 2012 at 8:49 am
Yes Pat, jeez, kinda like when Republicans label ALL Democrats and Independants as “bleeding heart socialists!”. Good news hear is that name calling and labeling has always worked in the past, so should be good to go here!

IF YOU THINK ITS BAD NOW, jUST RE-ELECT HIM, WE WILL BE STARVING ON THE STREETS , AND ROBBING OTHERS WITH NO ” “GUNS’ FOR FOOD !! NO GUN?? WHAT MAKE ANYONE THINK YOU CAN’T DO HARM WITH SOME HARD OBJECT !!! THIS NEW DEAL WITH BARRY HAS SEPERATED WE AMERICANS LIKE NEVER BEFORE, HE HAS DONE WHAT HIS PLAN WAS ” CHANGE LIKE WE HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE “” I HEARD HIM, WAKE UP AND LISTEN, STOP BEING STUPID ! DO NOT RE-ELECT THIS NON AMERICAN.
January 3, 2012 at 3:56 pm
You are all going to love this, I can almost picture the cliff you will be jumping off! I am going to re-elect our current American citizen President and hope he he gets a Congress that will allow him to get something done.

“Catchy little tune” is from Pal Joey, “With Frank Sinatra” singing the “Rubber tree plant”…Great idea to wake up some “do nothing politicians” ….America, ‘ya gotta wake up some people…Way to go Tim
January 2, 2012 at 7:27 pm
Hit it right on the nail. I love the words to the song, it is all so true.
January 2, 2012 at 5:43 pm
This message of Tim’s, an otherwise pretty good comedian, reflects a view of Government usually held by immature people who have never experienced deprivation nor personal or family tragedy and real hardship.
January 2, 2012 at 1:36 pm
That’s what churches and private philanthropic organizations are for, not tax payer money! If I want to help someone in need that should be my choice and not forced by a nanny state government!!
January 3, 2012 at 3:03 pm
Yes, but notice how Obama’s administration is denying churches grants to help the poor if they don’t promote abortion.
January 4, 2012 at 9:08 am
Excellent job. Keep up the good work. Maybe you can get the message across that we can’t….
January 1, 2012 at 6:24 pm
it’s great to see that not all Americans are willing to be BLIND, STUPID and IGNORANT. Wake up, he doesn’t care about America!!!!!!!!
January 1, 2012 at 5:37 pm
It is good to know that not all actors and musicians are stupid and can see thru Obama.
December 31, 2011 at 11:46 am
Ummm. Do you think, perhaps, Congress may have a little culpability, Marlene?
January 1, 2012 at 9:40 am
Yeah, like the Democrat controlled Congress from 2007-2008 which would not reform Fannie and Freddie (despite efforts by Bush and the Republicans to do so) and this same Democrat Congress passed all kinds of legislation which put us in the economic tank prior to the 2008 election so they (the media and Democrats) could blame Republicans allowing them to win in 2008. Then the Democrat Congress with Barry at the helm put us into trillions of dollars of debt, more debt than had been accrued in the history of this great nation. The Dems and Barry are destroying our great nation economically and blind Democrats like you Jean just can’t see it. How pathetic. But we will have a second American Revolution and the Constitution will be instated.
January 4, 2012 at 9:03 am
just another attempt by a republican to blame the current economical disaster on democrates. sorry to burst your bubble but it was bush who put us here, obama was elected after the fact, but to make you feel better, it is not just the republicans that is ruining this country, it is both parties. obama was oprahs experiment to see if she had enough clout to put an african american into the presidency, forget the fact that in terms of leading he had absolutely zilch in experience. there has to be change in america, but the change that obama sees is not what this country needs!!!
January 4, 2012 at 12:04 pm
Wake up everybody! Yes, the current situation STINKS! And Bush did a little more than he should have, but it is not Democrat or Republican. That is what they have us arguing and fighting over. It is Big Government, Democrat (more so) and Republican alike (The Establishment), against small, CONSTITUTIONAL Government (some Democrats, but mostly the newly elected TEA PARTY Candidates, and of coarse Some Republicans). The more we bicker over Republican and Democratic differences, (and I think you’d be surprised at how close in thought True Americans really are), the better for THEM (those that are career politicians and have their own interests in mind). Originally the concern was these Representatives of their states would not meet in a year, so Amendment XX, section 2 constitutes a day of the year (Jan 3) when these reps MUST meet. And now it is a full time career? Wake up America, we have been led down a horrible path that began a 100 years ago, possibly 200 years ago! It’s not Bush or Obummer, but The chosen one (by the media) has kicked it into high gear. The Great Experiment of America, where man is FREE to rule himself (as long as he doesn’t hurt anybody), has been under attack since its’ inception, slowly, methodically, until us idiots wake up and it is all gone. Fortunately our Founding FATHERS were bright enough to see in the future and know this would happen and gave us the means with which to abolish our Government in the Constitution. Hopefully we do not soon have a King, although many up high believe they are.
January 5, 2012 at 11:43 am
Really? And when Bush was president and the unemployment rate was 5% the main stream media, AKA Democrat cheer leaders, bemoaned the terrible economic situation we were in. Yeah, right. You liberals are a bunch of idiots whether you be Democrats or Rhino Republicans.
January 5, 2012 at 8:10 pm
