Whoops! Obamas Paid Lower Tax Rate Than His Secretary

Obamas at State Dinner entry-thumb-350x461

Fox News, fair and balanced, reports that with today’s release of the Obamas’ 2011 tax return, the White House has acknowledged that Barack and Michelle Obama paid taxes at a lower rate than the president’s secretary.

Of course, like Warren Buffett, the Obamas could have paid more into the US Treasury had they chosen to. A simple check would do. But they didn’t. They also could have paid the secretary more. She earned less than $100,000 according to the White House.

Obviously, the answer is to lower everyone’s tax rates… rather than sitting back and watching them increase on January 1, 2013.

      Quote:

      Good and thourough Documentary on the origin of political correctness.

      As it turns out it is a revision of the marxist concept of false consciousness and has very real similarities with policies made by the communists in the eastern bloc in order to silence dissent.

      The western variant originated in the “critical theory” of the Frankfurt School.

      Refusing to take any responsibility for their own belief system and present their agenda in a direct and comprehensible manner,they found themselves content with igniting the conflicts within capitalist societies in order to weaken them.

      Promoting hedonism and making enemies of every thinkable grouping within the free world, they kept authorities comfortably busy on the homefront.

      Blacks and whites, husbands and wives, young and old, gay and straight etc.

      If gay-marriages were to become a majority preference one day, they would surely fight for the rights of the minority-group of individuals who want to marry their pets and criticise homosexuals for discriminating against people with a more polymorpheus sexuality than themselves.

      In essence many of the moronic professors now presiding over all the big social “studies” departments at american and european universities are the wounded victims of this aspect of the cold war.

      Getting a helping hand by the active measures of the soviet union because they had a weakened sense of truth, unable to resist the careful attack on academia, led by the cultural marxists, disappointed by the revolutionary potential of the western working class.

        Obama Kids get $48,000 — tax free!
        Posted on April 13, 2012 by Conservative Byte
        President Obama and his wife, Michele, gave a total of $48,000 in tax-free gifts to their daughters, according to tax records made public on Friday.The president and his wife separately gave each daughter a $12,000 gift under a section of the federal tax code that exempts such donations from federal taxes.There is nothing illegal about the president’s taking advantage of this tax shelter, but it does raise eyebrows given that he has lamented the myriad tax exemptions used by the wealthy—“millionaires and billionaires” like himself—to pay less in taxes. He has yet to propose a comprehensive plan to reform the byzantine tax code.

            Robert Wolf, CEO of UBS Americas,

            who has bundled more than $370,850 for Barack Obama so far this year, is one of the most embarrassing skeletons in BO’s money closet, now that the financial institution Wolf heads up in America has been outed in The Nation’s Attack of the Global Pirate Bankers.“…

            This crowded docket, combined with the UBS mea culpa, almost distracted us from the sordid details of the Levin Committee’s actual findings,”
            investigative journalist James S. Henry, wrote in The Nation on Tuesday.

            It’s not as if Wolf is just another number in the contribution side of the ledger paying for Obama’s race to the White House. Among the groupies pushing Obama’s rock star-status, Wolf stands at the front of the line.

Navin (Barry) is the kind of guy who can’t keep the beat and loves twinkies and Marie (Michelle) just loves all “The Stuff.”   Poor Navin (Barry) feels out of touch with his black family members, being that he was a poor black child raised in a white man’s shack
