In a grand display of self-sacrifice, Obama sent his wife and kids off to Hawaii without his glorious presence, so that he might save Christmas for 160 million Americans. And, by remaining on the job, he's managed another in an unending series of historic accomplishments: a two month extension of his Payroll Tax Holiday! Once again, America is saved - praise be to Obama! Hallelujah!
You see, Democrats are all about fairness and social justice. And they display a bulldog-like tenacity when protecting the Holiest of Holies, Social Security and Medicare. Woe to unto any evil Republican who might taketh away thine rightful benefits, especially in this season of giving.
Would it be that we mere commoners were intelligent enough to divine the great and powerful Obama's master plan, we would see that the best way to preserve Social Security is to have everyone who still earns a paycheck pay less into it. This stroke of genius falls right into line with the Democrat's idea that unemployment checks are the fastest way to stimulate our economy. Who are we to dare argue with the great minds of Washington?
I know, I know...saving Social Security by diverting funds from it does seem rather contradictory, even hypocritical. Some say this is because Democrats fail to see the difference between FICA, which is arguably not a tax, but collected and tied to benefits such as Social Security and Medicare, and all other taxes meant to fund the out-of-control federal bureaucracy.
We must remember not to lose our faith; we must remember to not question our rulers, for they have the knowledge of things we mortals cannot possibly comprehend. We must truly believe that diverting funds away from the two signature programs of Democrats is not an obvious attempt to purchase votes from those in this country still ignorant enough to believe in that most ethereal of promises, Hope and Change.
Even though the irony of this promise is becoming more obvious each day, as most have lost hope of ever seeing any change, we must not forget the fact that the true mystery of Obama's holy mantra may be beyond our comprehension as lowly taxpayers.
Yet, even after all of this, you would begrudge Dear Leader his well-earned time of rest? Blasphemer! You are not fit to remain in the collective.
Quote of the Day:
Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the "new, wonderful, good society" which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean "more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious."
Marcus Tillius Cicero (106 - 40 B.C.)
