People’s champion Bernie Sanders fights for your right to work harder for less money

by editor on December 18, 2010

Bernie Sanders is a socialist from Vermont. What is so special about that, you might ask? Nothing. But, unlike all but one other person from Vermont, Bernie is also a United States Senator. This makes his whole existence as an authoritarian all the more troubling to you, us and everybody else in the country.

Bernie, you see, has the power to steal from some citizens, give those ill-gotten gains to other citizens and then collect votes for being the middleman. And that’s exactly what Sanders has been up to this week.

Sanders is good at what he does. He’s been at it a long time and has mastered the one thing necessary to sustain this sort of scam – the art of double speak.

For that reason Sanders uses terminology like “fairness” and “for the children” while he seeks to saddle those children with trillions more in debt. At the same time, he seeks to punish those whom have the audacity to create jobs that diminish dependence on government.

Make no mistake, Bernie Sanders has no love for working families. As a socialist there is no greater obstacle to his goals than a strong middle class. Unless maybe it’s a strong upper class.

Here’s Bernie asking the rich “when is enough enough?” Mayhaps he should ask the same question of public sector unions instead.

By the way, this video is from CSPAN-2. CSPAN is awesome. It is like ESPN for smart people.

When I was a kid growing up in the 50s and 60s our family used to vacation in Vermont in the summer. Back then the Green Mountain State was rock ribbed Republican. But there was a counter-cultural invasion in the late 60s and the dope smoking, maggot infested hippies took over the state, turning it into a “people’s republic”. Bernie Sanders, a prime example of the socialist yoke imposed on Vermont, he was born in Brooklyn. The natives of Vermont, the the descendants of the original Yankees (called “woodchucks”), are looked down on by the new comers.

Same goes for Howard Dean, he fled NYC for VT.

I have a question for Comrade Bernie and his fellow Senators. When is enough enough?? I am talking about the millions of OPM they keep stuffing in their own pockets and banks accounts while castigating people who actually earn money. Scum!!!

There’s no denying that there are people who are addicted to making money! But I will maintain, admittedly without any real scientific support, that the segment of society that falls into that greed category is small, and that the majority of successful businesses and businessmen/women are hard working and innovative, with a genius for makin’ a buck by producing a product or providing a service that is IN DEMAND. And frankly, if they become billionaires in the process, so what? They provide jobs for millions of people who spend their salaries on goods and services that in turn provide jobs in other segments of the economy where, again, the founders/owners/CEOs of companies make millions. Guess what? We all have the opportunity to be one of those millionaires/billionaires, unless we allow people like Bernie to take it away from us.

I think it is far more greedy to expect to be given something for nothing than it is to expect to keep up to 65 percent of what you have worked for. Of course that 65 percent figure doesn’t take into account anything but federal income tax. Add in state, local, payroll, “services”, toll-roads and the corporate taxes that are passed along to the consumer and . . . well you get the picture.

What a schmuck! So, exactly how rich is Bernie the Red? Why aren’t we talking about his addiction to spending? His reckless need to throw more and more money out the window?
