So I am selfish. So what.
I guess the burden of trying to pay my bills. Figuring out how to pay for my collage and children's collage, or even my medical bills is not enough for Obama. He wants me to worry about my neighbors cousin who has a friend living down the block, who knows this guy who has a sister that does not have cable television. She also needs money for her car payment , her mortgage, the bass boat her boyfriend uses on the weekends, and money so she can take a vacation this next summer.
I just do not have my priorities in line do I? Gosh what a mean person I am. I just don't care about my fellow human being and what they want versus my responsibilities and my family.
I see here as Gov. Richardson form New Mexico has revalued the rich versus middle class economic line down from Obama's $200,000 to $120,000. I wonder when it will drop down to the $42,000 line Barack has mentioned in the primaries as an income that needs its taxes raised as well.
"The reason that we want to do this, change our tax code, is not because I have anything against the rich, I love rich people! I want all of you to be rich. Go for it. That’s the American dream, that’s the American way, that’s terrific." Obama said in Sarasota, Fla., yesterday.
"The point is, though, that -- and it’s not just charity, it’s not just that I want to help the middle class and working people who are trying to get in the middle class -- it’s that when we actually make sure that everybody’s got a shot – when young people can all go to college, when everybody’s got decent health care, when everybody’s got a little more money at the end of the month – then guess what? Everybody starts spending that money, they decide maybe I can afford a new car, maybe I can afford a computer for my child. They can buy the products and services that businesses are selling and everybody is better off. All boats rise. That’s what happened in the 1990s, that’s what we need to restore. And that’s what I’m gonna do as
president of the United States of America."
"John McCain and Sarah Palin they call this socialistic," Obama continued. "You know I don’t know when, when they decided they wanted to make a virtue out of selfishness."
Obama thinks one should take care of someone else before they can take care of them selves it would seem. this is selfish in my book. Sure it is a very compelling argument that everyone should have health care, a collage education, and money in their pocket. yet how will everyone have these things when some have to reach further into their pockets to pay for this while others kick back and enjoy while not contributing to the community? Now is not that a selfish act? Taking and not giving.
The false dot com boom of the 1990's is nothing to brag about or to imitate and strive to repeat. After all the market did crash at the end of Clinton's Presidency. Bush 43 inherited from Clinton, a recession in every sense of the word. Two quarters of no growth ion the economy. Something we have not had since.
I would love to be able to afford a new car instead of a used one that is only new to me an my family. Sure I would love to be able to afford a larger house. But you know what. I am willing to be responsibly in my fiscal decisions and save and wait for the opportunity when I can afford the payments. payments that I can make from the money I earned and not some one elses hard earned money.
then again I guess it is selfish to think that I should save and try to be responsible.Then again under Obama's plan I won't be able to save. The old feeling of satisfaction from doing it yourself, and sense of achievement is wrong. So with that in mind I guess I like being selfish.
I like the fact that a job well done means a little blood sweat and tears from me was put into it. that the fact I did it and no one else did (pride) the job makes me feel good. That I earned this or that, was able to provide and achieve on my own.
CALL ME SELFISH.
