All About Power

In case you haven’t noticed, the new president of these United States is running things a little, uh, no a lot different.
He has caused me to have even more doubt about his lack of experience for the office which is referred to as “the most powerful office in the world.” He was cavorting in the lower Americas last week with the likes of Hugo Chavez and talking to Raul Castro about striking up a new relationship with the cigar nation. Raul Castro touched off a whirlwind of speculation last week that the U.S. and Cuba could be headed toward a thaw after nearly a half-century of chilly relations. The speculation began when the Cuban president said leaders would be willing to sit down with their U.S. counterparts and discuss “everything, everything, everything,” including human rights, freedom of the press and expression, and political prisoners.
Obama responded at the Summit of the Americas by saying Washington seeks a new beginning with Cuba. But as he prepared to leave the summit Sunday, Obama also called on Cuba to release political prisoners and reduce taxes on remittances from the U.S. That appeared to enrage Fidel Castro, 82, who wrote in an essay published Wednesday that Obama “without a doubt misinterpreted Raul's declarations.” Castro says President Barack Obama “misinterpreted” his brother's remarks regarding the United States and bristled at the suggestion that Cuba should free political prisoners or cut taxes on dollars people send to the island.
Well, I guess Raul misinterpreted who really is da boss, and oh by the way, apparently so did our new president! Now if this was a warm-up, let’s just wait until he gets started with the likes of Iran, North Korea, China, and Russia. Whoa Nellie!
Now that ain’t all folks! He has a formidable group who is pulling some mighty powerful strings and according to FOX News Analyst, Bret Hume, President Obama just may not have the stomach for standing up to the Democratic Congress when they say sit down and listen! Nancy, “the dummy” Pelosi, third in line for president, wants a Windfall Tax on Retirement Income. In other words tax what you have made by investing toward your retirement. This woman is a nut case! You aren't going to believe this. Madam speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to put a Windfall Tax on all stock market profits (including Retirement fund, 401K and Mutual Funds!) Alas, it is true, all to help the 12 Million Illegal Immigrants and other unemployed Minorities! “We need to raise the standard of living of our poor, unemployed and minorities. For example, we have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need our help along with millions of unemployed minorities. Stock market windfall profits taxes could go a long way to guarantee these people the standard of living they would like to have as ‘Americans.”
Adding a tax to your retirement is simply another way of saying to the American people, you're so stupid that we're going to keep doing this until we drain every cent from you. That's what the Speaker of the House is saying.
