I guess the honeymoon is over..



Sometimes, watching a Democrat learn something is wonderful, like seeing the family dog finally sit and stay at your command.

With President Obama back in office and his life-saving “fiscal cliff” bill jammed through Congress, the new year has brought a surprising turn of events for his sycophantic supporters.

“What happened that my Social Security withholding’s in my paycheck just went up?” a poster wrote on the liberal site DemocraticUnderground.com. “My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don’t feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease is gonna’ hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over 400 grand. What happened?”

Shocker. Democrats who supported the president’s re-election just had NO idea that his steadfast pledge to raise taxes meant that he was really going to raise taxes. They thought he planned to just hit those filthy “1 percenters,” you know, the ones who earned fortunes through their inventiveness and hard work. They thought the free ride would continue forever.

So this week, as taxes went up for millions of Americans — which Republicans predicted throughout the campaign would happen — it was fun to watch the agoggery of the left.

“I know to expect between $93 and $94 less in my paycheck on the 15th,” wrote the ironically named “RomneyLies.”

“My boyfriend has had a lot of expenses and is feeling squeezed right now, and having his paycheck shrink really didn’t help,” wrote “DemocratToTheEnd.”

“BlueIndyBlue” added: “Many of my friends didn’t realize it, either. Our payroll department didn’t do a good job of explaining the coming changes.”

So let’s explain something to our ill-informed Democratic friends. In 2009, Mr. Obama enacted a “holiday” on the payroll tax deduction from employees’ paychecks, dropping the rate from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent. But like the holidays, the drop ended, and like New Year‘s, the revelers woke up the next morning with a massive hangover and a pounding head.

“Bake,” who may have been trolling the site, jumped into the thread posted Friday. “My paycheck just went down. So did my wife’s. This hurts us. But everybody says it’s a good thing, so I guess we just suck it up and get used to it. I call it a tax increase on the middle class. I wonder what they call it. Somebody on this thread called it a ‘premium.’ Nope. It’s a tax, and it just went up.”

Some in the thread argued that the new tax — or the end of the “holiday,” which makes it a new tax — wouldn’t really amount to much. One calculated it would cost about $86 a month for most people. “Honeycombe8,” though, said that amount is nothing to sneeze at.

“$86 a month is a lot. That would pay for … Groceries for a week, as someone said. More than what I pay for parking every month, after my employer’s contribution to that. A new computer after a year. A new quality pair of shoes … every month. Months of my copay for my hormones. A new thick coat (on sale or at discount place). It would pay for what I spend on my dogs every month … food, vitamins, treats.”

The Twittersphere was even funnier.

“Really, how am I ever supposed to pay off my student loans if my already small paycheck keeps getting smaller? Help a sister out, Obama,” wrote “Meet Virginia.” “Nancy Thongkham” was much more furious. “F***ing Obama! F*** you! This taking out more taxes s*** better f***ing help me out!! Very upset to see my paycheck less today!”

Fascism is a religion of the state. It assumes the organic unity of the body politic and longs for a national leader attuned to the will of the people. It is totalitarian in that it views everything as political and holds that any action by the state is justified to achieve the common good. It takes responsibility for all aspects of life, including our health and well-being, and seeks to impose uniformity of thought and action, whether by force or through regulation and social pressure. Everything, including economy and religion, must be aligned with its objectives.

I'd say that not every liberal or conservative is in "lock step" with what their prospective parties do.

Suprise! Careful libs of what you wish for it may come true. But remember you're only paying your "fair share" because it's the right thing to do. And remember when dollars count we are only a "revenue increase" away not a tax increase that's an old school name for it. By renaming it they've made it easier to endure don't you think. Oh I just remembered it's Bush's fault. Obama really cares about us and would never allow this to happen. Damn those republicans!

Lots of rich Pubs are calling for more taxes...perhaps their undercover libs as well?? Or perhaps they don't care about those poor "wish they rich" boot-sucking Pubs... lol, funny how you think those rich Pubs give a hoot about you or your family.

I'll also say, that rich libs, don't care about those poor "boot-sucking" dems either. It's a huge smorgasboard out there, and if you aren't rich, you're on the menu. It's just sad that some people don't realize it.

Yeah, I have heard quite a few of the Obama jock-sniffers whining about their personal finances lately due to their Spendthrift-In-Chief's actions. I guess now that the lies affect THEM, they're changing their tune. What a shocker, huh?

It's going to get a lot worse before it gets any better. How's that "Hope and Change" B.S. sittin' with ya now, folks?

I guess that's why the party is shrinking, if you aren't on the ever-growing fringe and you don't think like someone want you to, then you're considered an outcast.

If you are correct, it sounds like the GOP may be no more in 30 or 40 years. Imho, a party should have "individual" thinkers as well. If every one is a party-line voter, then nothing will get done. This is evident in both parties today as the fringes on both sides are growing, which is causing more and more deadlocks.
