The Politics of the Left.... and Europe.

in one of the games I play someone made the following comment.


A lot of people in your Land seem to be whise enough to recognize that there MUST be a change... Your Republicans are much to conservative to change anything, he would have continued the work of Mr. Bush... And be truthful to youself:Noone can really WISH to continue the stupid and selfish work of President Bush... And then the choice of his candidate of the vice-president... Someone who choose HER to be a leader of this great nation canĂ‚´t be really serious,can he???

This is from a person who says he is a German, living in Germany. Notice how similiar it is to the Left and their Media cohorts views. It is a parroting of what they say. But let us look at these words more closely.


A lot of people in your Land seem to be whise enough to recognize that there MUST be a change...

Gotta love that... MUST be change. Change to what? To Socialism? Cut and run from the wars in Iraq and Afgansistan?


Your Republicans are much to conservative to change anything, he would have continued the work of Mr. Bush...

What? There are ton's of things conservatives such as myself would like to change... Oddly enough I think this writer and the left would not like those changes.

1. I would be for ending the EIC that many get. The earned income credit makes no sense to me. Let me get this straight... If I have 2 kids, and only earned $11,000 dollars in a year the federal govenment will give me $4700 dollars for all my hard work? So I pay NO income taxes but i get a EIC of $4700? A 42 percent bonus!!!! Boy would I love to get that!!! bleeding hearts would say that the person needs the EIC because they are below the poverty line. My first response to this is where is the person living, how are they living... what choices are they making...

2. I would drill for oil now, start serious plans for nuke power plants... And extend or create new tax incentives for people to invest in new systems for power production. I believe that if you reward a behavior you get more of it, and need to plan for it. The EIC above is an example of rewarding people for making poor choices and making little to no money. Incentives to buy electric cars, solar panels, wind power systems will get people to buy them. Perfect example of having to be careful for what you wish for... California said "buy a hybrid, you get to use the carpool lane even if you drive alone" California had to suspend that program because there were/are to many people who now qualify. But it is working by providing incentives to do the right thing.

We need to reward good behavior, while helping people recover from bad choices... But we cant REWARD them for bad choices.

anyway back to his comments.


And be truthful to youself:Noone can really WISH to continue the stupid and selfish work of President Bush...

While I am unhappy with many of the things Republican Congressmen, as well as President Bush have been doing... I do not understand what this person means by stupid and selfish...


And then the choice of his candidate of the vice-president... Someone who choose HER to be a leader of this great nation canĂ‚´t be really serious,can he???

Obama is great, but Palin? Come on you gotta be kidding me.

Let me end this post for now... with one last comment. German income tax? highest bracket is 45%... thats not including the VAT on goods and services which is another 19%... Yea, I want to listen to someone living in a country like that!!!

EDIT

Whoops let me add one more thing. I have lived outside of the United States. I don't need to here the condescending, baseless arguement that if only Americans got out and saw the rest of the world they would be more like it. Not true.

Update #1

Another person playing that game makes the following comment.

20 years ago you were selling guns to Sadam and you were allies. Wasnt he a
dictator then? The guy on the video lost his leg for Shell Oils company. He just
doesnt know that and this is sad...


Now he is talking about the Video I posted below. This guy appears to be greek. I love how we stray so far away from topics... but I guess it is a tangent we can discuss.

The Iran/Iraq war started in 1980, and ended in 1988... President Reagan sought to keep Iran and Iraq fighting amongst themselves... with no one coming out the victor. Now to say we were allies would be incorrect. But we did deal with both parties. Not the prettiest of situations... I wonder if our greek friend knows what Greece did during the Iran/Iraq war... After all, Saddam is a dictator. As far as the media/left driven idea of war for oil... Where is the oil now? Is it flowing into the United States? Have we confiscated the oil fields? How does the reality on the ground square with the leftist view that we only went in for their oil?

Oh I know... we are getting ready to take it...
