I've said it before:

Obama makes Clinton look like Reagan.

Did you know that if you hit the lottery and quit your job, that the next calender year when technically you don't have an income, you are included in the poverty numbers?

Poverty probably means you only have two TV's and your running windows XP on a pentium 4.

The increase in the poverty rate will prove to the left that spreading the wealth is, indeed a grand idea.

I believe that if the wealth of this country were evenly divided it would take perhaps 3 months before it was redistributed right back to where it is now. There will be some exceptions, but we'd all end up pretty much where we are.

BTW: Fact. 70% of NFL players are broke - and some homeless - within 3 years of their last game. Spreading wealth doesn't work. Now, creating a vibrant economy! - that works.

You say you'll change the constitution
Well you know
We'd all love to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well you know
You better free your mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow

Who knew John Lennon was a prophet?

Not to mention a raging communist.

That too.

But I don't think even he could "imagine" this fuck up of a "leader" we have right now.

Lennon, at least the late 60's and early 70's Lennon would be right along with him. Lennon went right along with Alinski as well if you think about it just like O is doing. Today, if he were still alive, John would just be another moonbat liberal like the rest of the entertainment industry.
