Democrats Show Their Lack of Common Sense
posted June 16, 2008
GUEST COLUMN – It’s bad enough that the
liberal Democrats now have Americans by the throat in both House and
Senate, but it’s worse when you consider the fact that their numbers
likely will be increased after the November elections.
Playing to the fears of the American people, rightfully so when you
consider the dismal performance of George W. Bush as president, the
Democrats are putting themselves in position to wreck what is left of
I refer here to their demands that the “windfall profits” of oil
companies be taxed to the fullest amount possible, and they are raising
the fears of “big oil” to justify what, if it comes to pass in the form
of a massive tax increase, may well be the executioner’s sword for our
I watched on television Tuesday afternoon as a gaggle of Democrats and
their best buddy, the so-called independent Sen. Bernie Sanders, take
on the oil companies and vow to tax the energy providers to within an
inch of their souls.
What the Democrats are refusing to tell the voting public, most of
which is as stupid as the Democrats are conniving and nefarious, is
that there is no such thing as a windfall profit in the sale of
gasoline, diesel fuel, kerosene and other petroleum products to the
Admittedly, the oil companies are taking in a lot more money than they
expend for crude oil, but the money isn’t going into the pockets of the
oil executives. The profits are being plowed back into investments in
the search for more oil.
And to be even more specific, the profits are diverted into the stock
portfolios held by hundreds upon hundreds of thousands of American
citizens who are vested in pension funds and put their money into
mutual funds and other stock offerings.
The Democrats, by failing to tell the full story, are misleading the
American people in the worst kind of ways. They are turning the people
against the very companies that have enabled this country to become the
biggest and best nation in the history of the world.
I want to throw up when I see Sanders, only a step away from being a
full time communist, and fellow senators preen for the cameras and
demand the heads of oil company executives in the form of massive tax
increases, as if that would do anything to cure oil shortages and cut
prices My guess is that most of their money would be shipped to Africa
and other world pestholes to prop up the dictators that run them.
Sanders and his ilk are as dumb as door knobs and if forced to work in
the private sector would starve to death. All Americans who are smart
enough to know what is really going on in the world economy should
reject these miserable politicians for what they really are -
parasites, beggars and liars who are interested only in themselves.
They are aided and abetted by another worthless group, the government
bureaucrats who put their jobs ahead of the people they serve.
May a pox fall upon all of these miserable scoundrels.
