Obama: I'll Determine How Much of Your Paycheck 'You Need'

Oh lookie here another gem of a misleading headline. Here’s the quote in question:

"But in return, we need to change our tax code so that people like me, and an awful lot of Members of Congress, pay our fair share of taxes. Tax reform should follow the Buffett rule: If you make more than $1 million a year, you should not pay less than 30 percent in taxes. And my Republican friend Tom Coburn is right: Washington should stop subsidizing millionaires. In fact, if you’re earning a million dollars a year, you shouldn’t get special tax subsidies or deductions. On the other hand, if you make under $250,000 a year, like 98 percent of American families, your taxes shouldn’t go up. You’re the ones struggling with rising costs and stagnant wages. You’re the ones who need relief.

"You're the ones who need relief" ———>  I’ll Determine How Much of Your Paycheck ‘You Need’

PSU sex scandal

I think it’s hypocritical of the media to accuse anyone who supports Joe Paterno of disrespecting the victims of Sandusky’s perversions. Joe Paterno isn’t the one who raped those young boys. Joe Paterno isn’t the one who witnessed the abuse with his own two eyes and did nothing. Joe Paterno isn’t the one who orchestrated the cover up. But for some reason, if you turn on the TV, pull out a newspaper, or load a news/sports website, it’s Joe Paterno’s name and face plastered everywhere.  

So I have to ask, are we, Paterno’s supporters, the ones who don’t realize the magnitude of the situation, or is it the media; who decided that the sick actions of Jerry Sandusky and the resulting coverup by Tim Curley, Gary Schultz, and campus police weren’t enough to warrant public interest and outrage; who are being disrespectful? 

Joe Paterno failed to act, yes, and I can concede that his firing is justified even though I disagree with it personally, but to make him the central topic of this discussion is a joke. Wake me up when the quality of reporting is more important than ratings. 

So rage against duly-elected government is ‘patriotic’ and ‘quintessentially American,’ where(as) rage against multinational, shareholder-accountable corporations is ‘anti-American.’ Gotcha.

I don’t get it: Here’s a group of Americans disenchanted, railing against big government bailouts; angry ‘cause they played by the rules, worked hard — now they’re in debt from student loans and they’re unemployed. I mean, look — if this thing turns into throwing trash cans at Starbucks windows, nobody’s gonna be down with that. …But these protestors — how are they not like the Tea Party? … Aren’t these folks real citizens with real problems?

This is why people incorrectly believe that Park 51, an Islamic community center opening with a photography exhibit, is a mosque. This is the catalyst by which Islamophobia has been fueled in this country and abroad. This is not journalism. This is not factual. This is not a news organization, it is a blatant extension of xenophobic politics in America.

Mr. Glenn Beck!

Yes, these comments are about 9 months old, but given that today is the anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor, which was one of the defining moments of FDR’s presidency I feel that they’re relevant today.
