I'll be honest, if it wasn't for one of my readers tipping me off, I would have never known about this. Matter of fact, if it wasn't for that very reader hitting me up on Twitter. I would never had known that this turd was still alive. Shit, I ain't seen this dude in a movie since Deliverance. Which is ironic because the only people feeling his message are the toothless banjo picking knuckle draggers posing as intellectuals in the Tea Party Movement. You know, the same people motivated and moved to water the tree of liberty with the blood of tyrants and patriots, since the light skinned brother and his family moved into the White House?
You know, the same people who are of the opinion that Obama has made America less safe by signing the new treaty on nuclear weapons? Yeah, it's as though Obama signed a deal to have everybody around the world dump their plutonium here, so we could drop it off to the Bloods & Crips in Compton. Or that now the nuclear stock pile will be reduced, the Republic of Tonga will finally be able wipe the United States off the map with its new advantage. I mean Obama has been bowing down to kings and shit, so you know this had to happen.
The nerve of this asshat to suggest that people are ignorant to Obama's agenda. Seems to me that the only people ignorant are the very people he represents. The same fools talking about runaway spending and linking it to Obama. When they've been sitting with their thumbs up their asses while George Bush's tax cuts have benefited the wealthy at the expense of the working poor. Don't believe me? Well, check out this recent report from the organization Wealth for the Common Good, titled: Shifting Responsibility: How 50 Years of Tax Cuts Have Benefited America's Wealthiest Taxpayers. Here's a little pertinent information from their site, per the results of the study:
Between 1960 to 2004, the top 0.1 percent of U.S. taxpayers — the wealthiest one in one thousand — have seen the share of their income paid in total federal taxes drop from 60 to 33.6 percent.So who is Jon Voight talking to, and who is he really representing? Surely not the ignorant progressives as myself, right? Oh no, he's appealing to the lemmings on the right who find solace in the words of some actor from Hollywood's Cro-Magnon era who's starving for work, and attention. Yes Jon, America is just that stupid to fall for the lie that is Obama. Lucky for you, they're just as ignorant so as not to see an angry old man projecting his inner frustrations and failings as a father. No wonder his daughter Angelina Jolie doesn't carry his last name nor wants to be bothered by his old decrepit, and cantankerous ass. Surely he's opposed to the Obama administration or more specifically Health Care Reform. Hell, he's already a corpse.
America’s highest income-earners — the top 400 — have seen the share of their income they pay in federal income tax alone plummet from 51.2 percent in 1955 to 16.6 percent in 2007, the most recent year with top 400 statistics available.
If the top 400 of 2007 paid as much of their incomes in personal income tax as the top 400 of 1955, the federal treasury would have collected $47.7 billion more in revenue from just these 400 taxpayers.
In 2007, if the top 0.1 percent of taxpayers — Americans with incomes that averaged $7,126,395 — had paid total federal taxes at the same rate as the top 0.1 percent paid these taxes in 1960, the federal treasury would have collected an additional $281.2 billion in revenue.
Tax cuts for the wealthy between 2001-2008 cost the U.S. Treasury $700 billion, with all of these billions added directly to the national debt. Retaining these tax cuts will cost $826 billion over the next decade.
