Ben & Jerry: We’ve Been Trying to Get Taxed at a Higher Rate for Years

As I mentioned to the New York millionaires who want a higher tax rate, you don’t have to wait until April 15th to give the government more of your money. Put your money where your mouths are Ben & Jerry and cut a big fat check right now.

From HuffPo: Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, known to most as the names behind the ice cream brand Ben & Jerry’s, said they’d love to get taxed at a higher rate.
“We’ve been trying to get taxed at a higher rate for years,” Cohen told HuffPost’s Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani in New York on Thursday.
Cohen and Greenfield were giving out ice cream called “Bernie’s Yearning” at an event put on by Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders’ campaign. (Cohen and Greenfield attended as private citizens.)
bernie's yearning
“Just because you happen to have a bunch of money doesn’t mean you should give up on the idea of justice and equality,” Cohen continued.
The two have been vocal about their support for Sanders and his tax plan. They haven’t shied away from other political issues either, penning an op-ed against “tax cut nutters in Congress” in April 2015 and publicly putting their support behind the Occupy Wall Street movement in 2011.

Occupy protester who left family sues city over ‘police brutality’

She must have blown through the $85,000 she obtained in her divorce. (This womyn also compared her decision to abandon her family to Americans serving in the armed forces. “Military people leave their families all the time, so why should I feel bad?”)

Her parents must be so proud...

Her parents must be so proud…


NY Post: The mom who left her family in Florida to become part of the raggedy Occupy Wall Street crowd has sued the city over her 2011 arrest — testifying Tuesday that she’s an innocent victim of police brutality.
“Somebody grabbed me by my hair and dragged me . . . behind the police officers,” said Stacey Hessler, 42, in Manhattan federal court.
But city attorneys said in their opening statements that Hessler had blocked pedestrian traffic during the November protest, then refused to move when cops politely asked her to make way. She also allegedly tried multiple times to escape when they finally moved to arrest her.

Hessler was “trying to bring the intersection to a standstill,” city attorney Andrew Lucas said.
The dreadlocked Hessler gained infamy for leaving her husband and four kids in Florida to camp out in Zuccotti Park. She spent some of her time with OWS cozying up to a Brooklyn waiter.

A Word for the Demagogues

andrew_cuomo-300x300
“Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.”
– Leviticus 19:15

The Bible has plenty to say in defense of the poor, but it also says things in defense of the rich!

occupy4   black-thugs-posterdemegogue-01
We often see our politicians demagoguing about this and that for the poor. We also see the “Occupy” movement decrying the “rich” (usually their own wealthy parents) for all their perceived crimes. And lately another duplicitous group called “Black Lives Matter” has been out there bullying anyone who has the audacity to say “All lives matter.” Let’s not even start with the new wave of gay fascists, and their late exploits.

Well, here in Leviticus, the Lord has made it very clear that anything like our entitlements culture in America is on a very corrupt foundation. 

So to all you lying, cheating, tax-fattened weasels out there we say, “We’ve got your number.” You don’t have an honest care for the poor. You don’t hold any moral high ground. You are nothing but opportunists with a self-serving agenda.

A candidate for the stupid voter

“The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.” – Winston Churchill

omalley

Martin O’Malley
Former Governor of Maryland

Remember the “beef cake” picture of Obama at the beach?

Remember how the crones on “The View” became dizzy and how Chris Matthews got “tingly?”

obama-beach-pictureI am stifling a gag as I post this piece. Please note that this is the former governor of Maryland, who’s city of Baltimore hosted the ugliest race riots since Rodney King, and who’s leftist policies set up the conditions that caused them.
Ted and BarryYes, he’s white and has an Irish name. But before you start feeling safe, remember another white guy white an Irish name who endorsed Barack Obama in his first run for president.
America, brace yourselves for an onslaught of the stupidest reasons imaginable to vote for a presidential candidate.

If Ignorance Is Bliss, Why Are Democrats Such Angry Extremists?

image
Whenever I hear the expression “Ignorance is bliss”, I think about a television sitcom, or the actors I see in television commercials or in print ads. They’re not just happy, they’re giddy. Indescribably giddy. All because they just saved 15% on their car insurance, or scored tickets to the latest concert. Life, filled with calamities, goes on all around them, but they’re oblivious. Their lives are laughter and mirth.
I can count the number of people I know like that in real life on one hand.
One was a girl I worked with. She was short and covered with tattoos. She smiled constantly. She had a witty mind and every verbal exchange was good for a laugh or a smile. She had no clue about politics or current events. She was nineteen-years-old with a two-year-old daughter, a live-in boyfriend, and she was sleeping her way through every male in the company.
The second was a girl I dated briefly. She also had a witty mind and a contagious laugh. In fact, she never knew when to stop laughing. Everything was a joke. I have no idea where she is now.
The last one was an actress I performed with. She knew nothing of current events, but thought she did. Of course, she was a leftist. Her whole existence was acting, singing and dancing. Last I heard she was a drunk.
So where are all these other giddy, blissful people? And how about this matter of ignorance? If we’re willing to be perfectly honest (and most people aren’t), then it’s obvious to anyone with a brain that Democrats are ignorant.
You want proof, you say? Well, take a look out the window. Look at the economic policies that have destroyed our cities. Look at the tax rates and regulations that have strangled small business owners and forced corporations to outsource jobs and factories. Look at our education system. Look at your paycheck, for crying out loud, and how little money you have left after Uncle Sam takes his cut. All of these and more are policies introduced and put into law by Democrats. And yet voters continue to elect them.
Whenever there’s a deadly shooting, the alleged shooter is a Democrat. (http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2014/06/11/sensible-gun-control/)
Whenever there’s a race riot, hate crime, or civil unrest, the people involved are Democrats. (http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/black-racism-race-riots/)
Whenever our country’s morals are lowered through crass and vulgar “art” or cinema, the people responsible are Democrats.
We have entire cities that have been under complete Democrat control for decades (Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore) or centuries (Atlanta), and they’re all hellholes, filled with violence, crime and anger.
I see a lot of ignorance, but not much bliss. And they all seem pretty angry to me.
Ignorance isn’t bliss. Ignorance is anger. Ignorance is hatred. Ignorance is violence. Ignorance is being a Democrat.

U.C. Berkeley student protest against Ferguson police violence turns violent

Yesterday (Dec. 6) evening, University of California, Berkeley students organized an ostensibly peaceful protest against racism and police violence “in solidarity” with Ferguson protesters against the St. Louis County grand jury’s decision not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of black teen Michael Brown.
Alas, the Berkeley students did not get the memo about the irony and the hypocrisy of a protest against police violence itself descending into violence and senseless trashing and looting of businesses that have nothing to do with Michael Brown or racism or blacks.

Berkeley riot Dec. 6, 2014Click map to enlarge

As recounted by the Berkeley Police Department:

Berkeley, California (Saturday, December 6, 2014) – This evening, a peaceful protest turned violent when several splinter groups broke off and began hurling bricks, pipe, smoke grenades, and other missiles at officers.
The protest began peacefully, and moved from Telegraph Avenue into the downtown area, and then to in front of the Police and Fire Public Safety Building. There, a small portion of the group splintered from the peaceful demonstrators and started throwing rocks, pipes and bottles at officers.  Numerous officers were struck, and one officer was struck with a large sandbag, and treated at a local hospital for a dislocated shoulder. These splinter groups also ran through several Berkeley neighborhoods vandalizing cars and breaking windows and looting businesses.
The crowd continued marching, arriving on Martin Luther King Jr. Way and University Avenue. Members of the crowd began vandalizing businesses on University Avenue, including Trader Joe’s, Radio Shack, and Wells Fargo Bank.
The crowd moved west, splintered and regrouped several times, as they moved to 6th/University, then back east to San Pablo Avenue and nearby streets, and eventually east up University Avenue, through the downtown area, and up Bancroft Way to Telegraph Ave.
Berkeley Police used smoke and tear gas after crowds refused to disperse and continued to vandalize local businesses and pelt officers with rocks, bottles, and pipes.
Numerous police vehicles were vandalized as the crowd moved through the south campus area….
The Berkeley Police Department is being supported by over a hundred officers from the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, Oakland Police Department, Pleasanton Police Department, Hayward Police Department, Alameda Police Department, California Highway Patrol and the BART Police Department.

Daily Mail says the protesters numbered around 400; 6 people were arrested.
Here are a video and photos from the Berkeley Riot of December 6, 2014. As you can see, most of the “protesters” are white college-age. Some were wearing U.C. Berkeley (“Cal”) sweat shirts.

Wall Street owns Clintons; Goldman Sachs biggest donor

Faces of Hillary
So much for the fiction that Democrats are for the poor, the oppressed, the little guy. In truth, Democrats only use them for their votes to stay in power — in other words, as Useful Idiots.
Here’s the evidence.
The Wall Street Journal reports (via Zero Hedge) that, even before Hillary “What difference does it make?” Clinton formally declares she’s running for POTUS in 2016, the Clintons already have accumulated the most formidable war chest in the history of the United States.
To date, during two decades on the national stage through campaigns, paid speeches, and a rat’s nest of organizations advancing their political goals, Clinton Inc. has raised about $3 billion from all sources, including individual donors, corporate contributors and foreign governments.
More than $1 billion of Clinton Inc.’s war chest come from U.S. companies and industry donors, of which Wall Street financial services firms have been one of the single largest sources of money. And of those Wall Street donors, the No. 1 supporter of the Clintons — accounting for nearly $5 million in donation — is Goldman Sachs.

Clinton Inc1The WSJ concludes:
Those deep ties potentially give Mrs. Clinton a financial advantage in the 2016 presidential election, if she runs, and could bring industry donors back to the Democratic Party for the first time since Mr. Clinton left the White House. […]
Not counting about $250 million the Clinton foundation has received from foreign donors, at least 75% of the money arrived in large donations from industry sources, a category defined by federal regulators and the Center for Responsive Politics. […]
“She has the credibility among Wall Street donors that could make it likely that Wall Street moves back into the Democratic fold,” said Sam Geduldig, a Republican lobbyist and fundraiser who represents Wall Street firms.

Hollywood Hypocrisy: Leftist “celebrities” who send their sons to military schools

Leftwing Hollyweirdos have only contempt and hatred for what’s best about the United States — the Founding Fathers and their ideological legacy; capitalism and the free market that foster economic prosperity everywhere in the world, including countries like China which, ironically, are ruled by the communist party; and the best and most powerful military in the world.

And yet, when they find themselves unable to cope with unruly and out-of-control sons, guess where the “celebrities” send them!

To the “oppressive” military schools and academies to learn self-discipline and order.

What rank hypocrites!

Rosie O’Donnell

Parker & Rose O'DonnellParker & Rosie O’Donnell

O’Donnell’s adopted son Parker made the decision to go to military school on his own, to the dismay and in spite of his America-hating mom. O’Donnell said:

“How do you really piss off your really left wing and peace-loving mother? You join the military. Parker was like, ‘Mother, I’d like to serve the Nation.’ I’m like crying, ‘Serve me instead!’ … He chose on his own. He actually begged to go to a military academy. And I was like two years of ‘No way.’ Truth is, since he was a little boy, that’s his area of interest. The same way I love Streisand and Bette Midler and entertainment, he can tell you any general in any war, what kind of tanks they had, what the battles were like. So I finally gave in and truthfully, he’s excelling and he’s very happy.

Cher

Cher & Elijah Blue AllmanCher & Elijah Blue Allman

From an account in the National Enquirer:

Elijah Blue Allman is the son of Cher and rocker Gregg Allman. Elijah and Cher weren’t close as he grew up. After attending boarding schools and military school, Elijah formed a rock band but soon got hooked on smoking heroin, painkillers, and alcohol. He’s been in and out of rehab “several times” but claims to have last used heroin in autumn 2008.

Elijah and Cher are presently estranged from and not even speaking to each other. Cher refused to even attend her son’s recent wedding.

Madonna

Rocco Richie & MadonnaRocco Ritchie & Madonna

Madonna reportedly is considering sending her “wild-child son,” Rocco, to military school after he was snapped brandishing a booze bottle.

Madonna’s ex, British director Guy Ritchie, reportedly hit the roof when Madonna posted a photo on social media of their 13-year-old son Rocco holding a gin bottle next to friends holding vodka bottles. An “insider” says Guy thinks Rocco is completely out of control, but Madonna was at her wits’ end over how to rein him in.

Knowing that Rosie O’Donnell had some problems with her kids, Madonna called Rosie for advice. Rosie told Madonna she’d sent her eldest, 18-year-old son Parker, to Valley Forge Military Academy for high school, and it was the smartest move she’d ever made, according to the source. Parker went from being sullen and belligerent to respectful and motivated in no time.

The insider says, “Madonna told Guy that Rosie suggested sending Rocco to military school, and he’s all for it. He’s fed up with Madonna’s lackadaisical parenting style and wants Rocco to have more structure.”

Today’ Lesson: Class Warfare. It’s Really Quite Simple

And we must give credit to the man (Satan’s Spawn) Who has made all this possible. Just think in 5 short years he has set back race relations 50 years, destroyed the futures of at least 2 generations of Black Americans. Yes you know who, So let’s give it up for President Lucy.   

President Lucy.

President Lucy.

The folks who are getting the free stuff don’t like the folks who are paying for the free stuff, because the folks who are paying for the free stuff can no longer afford to pay for both the free stuff and their own stuff.

And the folks who are paying for the free stuff  want the free stuff to stop.

And the folks who are getting the free stuff want even more free stuff on top of the free stuff they are already getting!

Now the people who are forcing the people who pay for the free stuff have told the people who are RECEIVING the free stuff  that the people who are PAYING for the free stuff are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

So the people who are GETTING the free stuff  have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free stuff   by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff and giving them the free stuff in the first place.
We have let the 
free stuff giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting free stuff than paying for the free stuff.

Now understand this. All great democracies have committed financial suicide somewhere between 200 and 250 years after being founded. The reason?
The voters figured out they could vote themselves money from the treasury by electing people who promised to give them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.
The United States officially became a Republic in 
1776236 years ago. The number of people now getting free stuff outnumbers the people paying for the free stuff. Failure to change that spells the end of the United States as we know it.
ELECTION 2014 IS COMING
A Nation of Sheep Breeds a Government of Wolves!

I’M 100% for PASSING THIS ON !!!
For all our sake 
PLEASE Take a Stand!!! 

Obama: Gone!

Borders: Closed!

Language: English only

Culture: God, Constitution, and the Bill of Rights!

Drug Free: Mandatory Drug Screening before Welfare!

NO freebies to: Non-Citizens!
