Standing against big government and for the people!

Killing the 1% Golden Goose, but is it worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Two years before Occupy Wall Street’s band of radical grad students set up their tents and cardboard signs in Zuccotti Park, Mayor Bloomberg warned the City Council against frivolous tax hikes. “One percent of the households that file in this city pay something like 50% of the taxes. In the city, that’s something like 40,000 people. If a handful left, any raise would make it revenue neutral.”

And then the 1 percent became the target of the left’s answer to the Tea Party. It wasn’t unusual to see bus riders wearing “We Are the 99%” buttons the way they had once carried I Heart New York bags.

New York City now has a radical leftist in Gracie Mansion, Bill de Blasio, a radical leftist City Council speaker, Melissa Mark-Viverito, and a radical leftist public advocate, Letitia James. The city is now run by the Working Families Party/ACORN and tax hikes will be used to finance generous payoffs to unions.

But the unions who rigged this election may never see those payoffs. New York City’s unfunded pensions are estimated as being as high as $136 billion. The crash may only be four years away.

The top 1 percent pay half the income taxes in the city and the top 10 percent pay 71 percent. Drive them away with tax hikes for municipal union goodies and the unions will have as much trouble collecting even basic benefits from New York as they do from Detroit.

In order for there to ever be a fair election, the people are going to have to take back the voting ballot machines and rid the groups that will sell out there own mothers to gain power. There is nothing but fraud in our elections and that is how the liberals have stole New York, I'd have to say New Yorkers are much smarter then that it's just fraud that's in the big city's.

Maybe Congress should start living by the same rules they write for US to live by.

Frankmusic, Obama is only receiving golf score cards, all other memo's go to the trash.

My father taught me as a young man that no one hires me to drive a tractor or clean out the barn. They hired me to make them money and if I don't they have to fire me or go out of business. It was true then and it is still true now, no matter what a union may say. If you work for me you will do what I think will make me the most money and the more I make the more I will pay you in return.

I have worked all my life and I have never been hired by someone on welfare. Enough said?

That picture is far better than a thousands words written about their self-centered life. They can't see beyond their unrealistic exaggerations.

For the last couple of years, the 1%ers got richer by a whole bunch and the 99%ers got poorer, what happened to the Maobama experiment of soaking the rich?  Now you got this NIMROD De Blasio who's going to try to soak the rich, guess what'll happen?

But it's the liberal thing to do, It don't have to make sense just attack anything a conservative does and says. The liberal left think if anyone believe in God there fools. And the conservatives that read the bible read that those that lean to the Left are Fools. Nothing has changed for thousands of years and God has said mankind will destroy himself and each other and so far the humans have done a good job. That is the only thing man has done well. Kill each other and steal what the other has and as mankind is given a choice to choice good or evil he will take evil every time. The flesh will take evil because it knows that that is going to be all the flesh well ever have. The spirit filled man will seek the thing of God and he knows there is better. So he can reframe from doing evil and knows freedom come from God and not by man.
