Dear Obama...

Like a lot of folks in this state, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. Inorder to get that paycheck, I am required to pass a random urine testwith which I have no problem. What I do have a problem with is thedistribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test.

Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check becauseI have to pass one to earn it for them? Please understand, I have noproblem with helping people get back on their feet. I do, on the otherhand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their ass, doingdrugs, while I work.

Can you imagine how much money the state wouldsave if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?

I guess we could title that program, 'Urine or You're Out'.

Hat tip to Sean Shepard for passing this beautiful idea along.

We couldn't POSSIBLY do that! We would be "violating" their right to be ( ) (fill in the blank yourself.)

My prediction:

Barack Obama has promised the American public everything. If you want to talk about the unemployment rate, just wait if he gets elected president. Those numbers will go through the ceiling. More people will looose their jobs with the democrats in congress and his plans for the country. Unfortunately for the sane citizens, many will become victims of this media created savior. The rich will become richer and the middle-class poorer. Say it ain't so!

These idiots will not be able to blame George Bush or John McCain when they loose everything. Fist the job, then their homes, cars and divorce if they are married.

Urine and birth-control required while on welfare.

Last night a friend came up with an idea that perhaps we should offer people (especially sexually indiscriminate men) payment to undergo a vasectomy. We both agreed it would likely be less expensive to the taxpayers than funding welfare. From what I understand the process can be reversed later if a person's mind changed.

This site is hilarious! Great prediction, Melyssa (anonymous). The reason I know it's you is because there are at least five claims without any sort of backup. Thanks for making my Saturday just a little bit better.

Mistress Phoenicia said...

Just wanted to let you know that your precious little anti-Obama citizenship "lawsuit" just got thrown out of court. :-(

Poor old Mely.

HOOSIERS FOR FAIR TAX said...

Mistress Phoenicia? Do you have a real name? Why do you hide under a fake name? Are you afraid of me?

Regarding the lawsuit, it's being appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. It appears there was a different ruling earlier that was changed.

And further, the ObamaCrimes.com website got 71 million hits. A lot of Americans who care deeply about the Constitution are angry.

Yes, Mely, I'm deeply frightened of you. Boo! No, seriously, I just like to keep an eye on Fascist blogs on the Internet and report them to the appropriate agencies.

HOOSIERS FOR FAIR TAX said...

Anonymous...If you aren't afraid, then why don't you post your name?

This blog is not fascist. I would not moderate and approve your message for publication if I was fascist. If I was a fascist I would ban and censor you.

Fascism describes Joe Biden's actions to the TV station whose anchor asked him about the campaign's "spreading the wealth" platform. The reporter asked if the concept was related to a central theme made in the Communist Manifesto.

The question rattled Biden so much that he declared OBama never made a statement supporting "spreading the wealth" and then the Obama campaign banned the TV station.

Now THAT is fascism.

So the day you catch me censoring, banning, or forcing readers to do something against their will, you can correctly label me fascist.

And yes, you ARE a coward, for you would never face me in an open forum with your identity exposed. And that makes me forever stronger and righteous for what I do. For I do it in sunshine without hiding.

Sugar, I'm not afraid of you, and I'm not GWARD! I was among those targeted in your infamous Herd Page, a bastion of hate that I'm sure people on here know nothing about. Your cruelty cost people dearly and then you paid the price by losing your dungeon. Like Sarah Palin, you run around and stir up the hate without any logical backup. But it's just not gonna work anymore.

Phoenicia....please get your facts straight. I didn't "lose" my dungeon. I was closing it when the city came after me. And I broke no laws. It took me 20 months of litigation to prevail, but I did.

Beating city hall helped me to learn how to unseat a very bad mayor.

This blog (and my work) was pivitol in throwing out that incumbent mayor (inspite of his millions in campaign funds). I even won a $5,000 national activism prize in December 2007 from a foundation in Chicago for doing it.

And regarding that "herd page"... Are you saying that my work so effective that you are still haunted by that hilarious satire page I built so many years ago? That little sociology project is how I learned to build websites. And where I honed my early skills of herd control.

You say it cost people dearly. Tell me specifically what were the damages? Every bit of it was satirized and never mentioned a single name.

I guess I effectively made the point that some people can do little more than follow the cow in front of them. Pity.

Don't you think you have better things to do these days? There's a world of opportunity out there. Go make your mark.

Phoenicia said...

Sugar I can name a lot of way you hurt us. But I'm saving that information for a rainy day. A poor innocent woman in the suburbs of chicago? A struggling artist in Ohio? These were you victim.

she asked what the damages are. Why didn't you answer?
