Well it is hard for me to come up with a proper superlative to express the disgust that I've got with President Obama and the congress.
And stagecraft that they substituted.
By rushing through a last minute piece -- legislation.
Is -- -- cause about 80% of Americans to pay more taxes.
And it does absolutely nothing to deal with the real problem of runaway spending.
Of course since incumbents were sent back at a 94%.
Rate in the past election.
Voters have to accept their responsibility in this disaster of a government.
For those who actually believed -- Obama's promise.
That if your income were under 250000.
Dollars you wouldn't pay one more dime in taxes.
Then you probably feel sucker punched.
Because you're gonna pay an average of about 16100 dollars more because of the payroll tax increase.
Now since the person that you probably work far it's gonna pay that plus an additional four point 9% tax.
I wouldn't count on a race.
A lot of Americans are simply don't lose their jobs.
For the Hollywood liberals and the real billionaires like Warren Buffett who want us to pay more taxes.
Even as their own lobbyist and attorneys make sure they keep their exemptions and their special loopholes.
Please spare me the self serving nonsense.
That you want everyone to pay a fair share.
You see -- -- country called -- -- to sacrifice more to stop people to build a better future for my grandchildren.
I have to find a cure for dreaded diseases like cancer alzheimer's.
-- -- even for male pattern baldness.
I might say sure count -- again.
But that's not what's happening with the increase in the taxes that we're paying it's just more spending on stuff we can't afford.
And ultimately it'll be paid for by Americans not yet born.
Since were mostly borrowing the money that we spend.
-- wife and I spent some time during the Christmas break visiting the sacred grounds of real sacrifice.
For -- real call -- On the Normandy beaches of mounted the largest.
And hideous invasion in history.
I stood on a deserted.
Quiet and peaceful Omaha Beach with a haunting memory -- on June 6 1944.
This sand under my feet was red with the blood of Americans.
From my father's generation.
Who if they survive the constant machine gun fire from Nazi gun nest.
-- against -- seawall.
And eventually climb those hills to liberate France.
And eventually save the world.
As we participated in the flag lowering ceremony at the end of the day in the American battlefield memorial ceremony in Omaha Beach.
-- carefully -- cross is represented the thousands.
For whom sacrifice.
Was much more than a percentage of their income.
It was 100%.
Of their own hopes dreams.
Buried in France some land that Americans proudly and respectfully oversee.
To preserve the dignity of their deaths.
Stewart Robertson a local historian who spent -- -- with us.
Took -- to saint -- -- -- American private John Steele parachuted as part of the airborne operation.
And whose parachute got caught on the steeple of the church in the center of the town.
The scene that was immortalized in the classic film the longest day.
What they came to fight was made clear as we made our way to Poland.
And their visited the Nazi death camps of outwards and -- now.
To stand in the very room.
Where more than a million fellow human beings were murdered in an attempt to annihilate the entire Jewish population.
To be asked to sacrifice -- come to stop the Holocaust.
And the insanity behind it would be a noble thing.
But we aren't being asked to sacrifice to make our country stronger.
We're being asked to pay more to make it weaker.
By making us a nation no longer focused on stopping evil and building real hope and faith for future generations.
-- simply spending money.
To give away for political payback.
And enriching the already privileged class at the very top and enslaving the dependent class at the very bottom.
I'm inspired to what this country once did to stand for something.
I'm just disgusted that we now fallen for the lies and spineless sense of self serving.
