The only thing that would have made this funny – and accurate – cartoon better would have been to put Mitt Romney in the raft carrying the 47% that, allegedly, don’t pay taxes,
actually, he also needed to put much of corporate america in the raft too. how is business depending on the government for handouts okay, but not for the sick, old, children? millionaire farmers are getting tax subsidies, and that’s fine with him?
Dommy… it’s true. 47% of Americans do not pay ANY Federal Income Tax. That’s from the IRS. I know you leftist freaks don’t like facts like this that disproves your Marxist “fair share” narrative, but it’s true.
Have a nice day!
“Some people regard private enterprise as a predatory tiger to be shot. Others look on it as a cow they can milk. Not enough people see it as a healthy horse, pulling a sturdy wagon.” – Winston Churchill
Hey obozo nice to see you back again displaying your usual lack of intelligence and nastiness. Why do you call anyone who you disagree with names like leftist freaks? I’m willing to bet you call yourself a christian but you certainly don’t practice christian beliefs of kindness and charity. Also the 47% includes seniors living on social security, getting medicare that they either paid into during their working years or paid a monthly premium for. That’s not a “handout or entitlement” it’s called insurance. Nobody is against private enterprise but history has shown what private enterprise will do when left unregulated – air or water pollution among other things. What this cartoon is displaying is Romney’s contempt not the 47%. So you have a nice day
Good morning, OMG. I see you’re still running that cartoon. I will take your word that it is not meant to be racist. But some people are going to tear you a new one about it, if they haven’t already. But I guess you’re used to that.
BTW, you never said what you feel about Winston being an admirer of fascists.
Who said that wasn’t true. It’s just that some people realize that those 47% are made up of a lot of different people, MOST of whom should not be written off as parasites on society. I’d even venture a guess that there was at least 1 year in the last 10 years that Romney himself paid zero federal income tax.
Retire people living off pensions they paid for often no longer pay federal income tax. Wounded veterans often pay on federal income tax. Working couples with 4 children often pay no federal income tax. They are all part of the 47%.
Joe… for all of you fools, useful idiots, and leftist freaks… have you wondered, objectively, why the the video from Mother Communist Jones was sliced and diced? Maybe because they wanted to deliver a message that was out of context so they could try to make Romney look bad? Hmmmm???? Noooooo… they would never do that, would they????? Of course they would. Just like NBC and the others doctored and cut the tapes in the Trayvon Martin incident to advance a false narrative that fit their agenda. And you leftist freaks lick that crap up like a dog eats his own vomit. Truth is, the tapes were cut. What you don’t see and hear is Romney being asked a question about his election strategy and who he intends to go after for their vote, NOT that he doesn’t care about the people from a governing perspective. You all know this, but you like to perpetuate lies because to all of you leftist freaks, the ends justifies the means.
For the record, Romney pays m0stly capital gains taxes. He doesn’t have a salaried job. He pays the same rate that you do if you have capital gains. No different. Besides, what the hell do you leftist freaks care about another man’s earnings? What friggin business is it of yours? Why are you so concerned with what Mitt does with his own money while you are NOT concerned what Obozo does with yours? Why are you not concerned that Obozo is spending us into financial oblivion? What the hell is wrong with you? Are you so overcome with jealousy and envy that you cannot see what is really important, but instead get mired in this meaningless bullsheet?
Why are you not talking about the fact that Obozo and the Federal Reserve are just printing their way into fiscal oblivion, destroying our currency and our economy? What’s more important to our country? Mitt’s tax rate, or bankrupting our nation?
And don’t give me your crap about Mitt’s wealth. Your a hypocrite if you’re not concerned with the wealth of the leftist freaks like Obozo, Kerry, Clinton, Soros, Kennedy, Rockefeller, etc. etc. etc.
“You cannot make the poor man rich by making the rich man poor.” – Winston Churchill
Dominick? can he win? Please tell me that he cannot….I need to sleep
IMHO, President Obama will win, but since I based my opinion on logic and that is an ingredient that seems to be lacking in some parts of our society anything is possible. Hopefully people will look beyond Romney and take a close look at the GOP platform, their tax plan, Ryan’s plan and learn what they have in mind for the middle class. If the GOP gets the White House and Congress in November there will be no middle class by the time they run for re-election four years from now. Hopefully a majority of Americans realize what is at stake, remember where we were 4 years ago, compare it to where we are today and vote accordingly. Asking us to compare where we are today to where we were 4 years ago is the only honest suggestion the GOP has made since the campaign started! I would not lose any sleep, President Obama is going to be re-elected.
ALL of the republicans everywhere are down in the polls. Sleep well.
If you care about America- get off your butts & get to the polls- & VOTE OBAMA.
Omission could cost the election. GOP gets their base to vote via fear.
Democrats need to vote for the same reason- FEAR of ROMNEY/RYAN!
Absolutely. They have used fear to motivate their base for many years. It is the old “Southern Strategy” and although it is false it works. We have something real to fear and everyone needs to start feeling it and acting on it.
girl… you look like Marilyn Manson, except not that attractive. You embody the pictoral definition of what I call a “leftist freak.” Grow up and get a life. Maybe you’ll be able to support yourself one day???
Have a nice day!
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency…Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.” – Czech Republic newspaper Prager Zeitung
Yeah. He’s an idiot, but he is serious.
So now we must base our opinions of our President on a Czech newspaper? Glad to know that Faux Not-The-News has expanded their coverage to the foreign press.
Czech Republic newspaper Prager Zeitung – sounds Deutsch to me! Romney has already shown himself to be a bigger “fool” and a lying Mormon Church bishop, too! Don’t you read the zeitungs?
ObozomustGo what kind of fool are you? You think the people who elected President Obama are fools but you are the clever one? Are there people who are more imbeciles than you? You heap blame on the American People who elected President Obama and exonerate yourself as being the exceptional clever one! Atleast the President has managed to get to where he is by sheer hard work. What are your achievements since you claim to be more clever? Your favourite Mitt Romney is a liar who tells one thing from one corner of his mouth and the opposite of the same thing from another corner of the same mouth. He lies through his teeth over and over again without shame. One time he says if he is elected, he will repeal the Affordable Care Act the following day. Then he turns a round and says “there are good parts of the ACA (which the GOP have baptised the Obamacare), which he will keep. Which is which? Repeal the Obamacare or keep the Obamacare! He says there are 47% of Americans who do not pay taxes and he will not care for those people because they are lazy and don’t want to help themselves. But Romney is one of those 47% who do not pay taxes despite his huge wealth. Why has Romney spread his huge wealth of over 250 million dollars in tax havens all around the World? Because he does not want to pay taxes. He reckons if he pays taxes then the Socialist government will take that money and distribute it to the 47% who think they are the victims, the government should give them food, housing, the government owes them something and that they do not want to take responsibility over their own lives, therefore Romney’s taxes should not be used to feed them. He doesn’t pay taxes himself. So why mourn and whine?
ObozoMustGo: You are telling someone else to grow up?! ObozoMustGo, that makes YOU sound like a friggin 6 year old! Of course, you have to go after her looks! You sound just like a total right wing male!
I am a Democrat, always have been. always will be, and I have worked and supported myself and my 3 children, sometimes working 3 jobs! I bet you are one of those children from the rich conservative family that had everything handed to you and mommy and daddy bail you out of problems. Just like so many other right wing spoiled conservatives. You all tell people to support themselves when you people don’t! Hypocrites!
And now…. the REAL Cartoon of The Day!

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” –Joe Biden on Barack Obama
Yes, we saw that chart. Now do you have one that shows what will work? Say one that would say that Mitt should pay the same tax rate as I do. It shouldn’t be too much of a burden on him. I’m retired and just sitting around waiting for my monthly entitlement from the socialist/Marxist government and he’s still out there working. I gave up 40% of my retirement savings thanks to a previous administration. How about Mitt? If he has a plan whereby I could recover it, I’m at least willing to listen?
Metro, Metro, Metro… you know that whole tax rate issue is a strawman argument. Yes you do. To anwwer your question about Mitt paying the same tax rates as you do….. He DOES! He pays the same rates you do on your capital gains. No different. He does not draw a salary, so his only income is capital gains. By the way, are you also aware that he gives away 16% of his income? Does your charitable giving rate come close to his? I doubt it. I know mine doesn’t. I’m in the 7% to 10% range annually. What’s your charity rate?
Regarding a chart with solutions, we have one. It’s called The Constitution and it works when we have maximum freedom and limited government that is not participant in economic activity, but instead a limited referee that enforces the rules equally for all.
As to Mitt having a specific plan… of course he has one. And if you think that all he has to do is reveal every detail and the cacaphony of leftist freaks in the media will leave him alone, I have a bridge to sell you. Like his tax returns, the only reason the leftists freaks want to see it is so they can criticize and ridicule him for it. They’re asking him to supply their ammo. Duhhhh… He’s not stupid. And so it is with his economic plan. He’ll dribble it out here and there and then slam it all down at the right moment. Be patient, you’ll see. But you may not like it if it means that government’s centrality in the world is diminished somewhat. We shall see.
Gotta run. Have a wonderful night, my friend!
PS> When are you leaving for your trip? Stopping in Philly?
PSS> Churchill was wrong about some things, but in the case of admiring fascists, I think it was more along the lines of admiring an opponent for their percieved strengths, not of a desire to emulate. He certainly did not govern like a fascist.
No, unfortunately we don’t get to Philly. But maybe some day. I have not seen as much of the east side as I would like. I have been to D.C., but the first time was for an AFL-CIO rally where I rode a bus for 24 hours. It was after Reagan fired the Air Traffic Controllers, so we all canceled our flights. The second time was for a business meeting (after I moved from the rank and file to middle management). On neither occasion did I get to see much of the city.
