DNC delegates want to ban or cap profits – Are you listening Hollywood?!? (Video)

As usual, if you want to appear smart at a Democratic convention, just ask a stupid question.  When radio personality Peter Schiff went to Charlotte for the DNC, he did just that. Posing as an anti-business crusader, Schiff found a number of DNC delegates and attendees who support explicitly outlawing profitability.  I would have loved for him to ask these same zombies if they would also support a cap on the salaries of Hollywood actors, recording artists, and sports figures.

 

Or how much money Hollywood moguls and team owners can earn.  If so, Eva Longoria, Bruce Springsteen, Jeff Bridges, LeBron James and Kobe Bryant might be singing a different tune and Hollywood might not be so liberal!  There is enough Capitalism in Hollywood and the sports world that the Marxist agenda may meet with some strong opposition.

What these brainiacs haven’t figured out yet is the ‘simple’ formula the IRS uses – the more you make, the more you pay in taxes!

 

 

If you want to know how 1%er Will Smith feels about paying higher taxes, watch this interview:

 

 

Even the top 1% draw the line somewhere! Again, if you limit what they make, you limit the amount they pay in taxes – it’s the economy stupid!

If their motto is ‘FORWARD’, why are Dems walking so much back?!?

Now that all the excitement and hoopla have died down following the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, I have been trying to understand why the Democrats have spent so much time walking back recent comments and actions.  Isn’t their motto ‘FORWARD’?

 

Let’s take Obama’s remarks in Roanoke, VA in which he proclaimed that if you were successful in life “You didn’t do that on your own” and “You didn’t build that”.  Although the MSM and team Obama have consistently refuted his comments and claimed they were ‘taken out of context’, he is on record saying exactly that!

 

 

Then we had the DNC poster child, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was caught in a big lie by CNN’s Anderson Cooper.  After DWS accused the Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein of taking her out of context, Klein released the audio proving her a liar.  Here is her interview with Anderson Cooper.

 

This was followed by the DNC’s sudden change of Thursday night’s venue from the Bank of America Stadium (seating 70,000) to the Time Warner Cable Arena (seating 20,000). The official reason was a prediction of possible severe weather. However, according to Charlotte’s WCNC TV Chief Meteorologist, Brad Panovich, the chance of rain was only 20% and there was no prediction of severe weather. Many wonder if the change of venue was more about ’empty chairs’ and less about the weather.

 

 

And who didn’t love the supposedly heartfelt speech by  ‘Steelworker’, David Foster, who told the story of how he and 750 steelworkers lost their jobs when the Bain-controlled company GST steel filed for bankruptcy in the early 1990s.  Funny thing, Foster never worked for GST!  According to ABC News, “David Foster was never an employee of GST Steel’s Kansas City plant. He was employed by the United Steelworkers of America as their regional union director to represent GST Steel.”  BUSTED!!!

Finally, we have the DNC’s removal of ‘God’ and ‘Jerusalem’ from their platform.  Following criticism and pressure from conservatives, the DNC hastily moved to add them.  Following three votes (which in the opinion of many did NOT meet the 2/3 majority requirement) and multiple ‘boos’, God and Jerusalem were reinstated.  I wonder just how prophetic the following scenario was – the majority of attendees ‘denied’ God three times……

 

 

In spite of a slate of young Hollywood stars and abortion supporters, the D ‘n C appeared to be more of a convention of contradiction than conviction. They seem to be perfecting the ‘Moonwalk’ – even though they are supposed to be moving FORWARD!

Democrats move Obama’s big speech from 74,000-seater outdoor stadium to 20,000-seater indoor arena

UPDATE – DNC changed venue to indoor arena today…..afraid of ’empty chairs’?

By Toby Harnden via Daily Mail

Democrats  are poised to avoid the danger of President Barack Obama accepting his party’s  nomination before a partially-empty stadium by shifting his speech to an indoor  arena and citing ‘severe weather’.

 

The  Obama campaign have been working desperately to ensure that the 74,000-seater  Bank of America stadium in Charlotte would be filled.

Buses for students from across North Carolina and even members of black churches in  neighboring South Carolina have been arranged.

Footage  of rows of empty seats at the stadium, home  of the Carolina Panthers, as Obama speaks on  Thursday night would be politically disastrous – an enduring image of the  contrast between his campaign of ‘hope’ and ‘change’ in 2008 and his dour,  negative struggle for re-election in 2012.

Now,  it looks like the weather has come to the President’s rescue.

As  officials prepare to open the Democratic convention this afternoon, there are  strong indications that the speech will be moved to Time Warner Cable Arena,  which has a capacity of just over 20,000.

Speaking  at a background briefing for the press, a Democratic official said that the  speech would be given in the stadium ‘rain or shine’ before quickly adding a  major caveat.

‘We  do have a contingency plan, though, for lightning or other severe weather,’ he  said. ‘We don’t want to put anyone in harm’s way so that’s really what we’re  looking for, not if it’s going to rain but if it’s going to be really bad.

‘The  reason that we’re not releasing the details on what a move to the arena would  mean until that decision is made we don’t want a lot of conflicting information  out there.

‘But  once that decision is made – if the decision is made – to move, we will make  sure all of the details and we want to make sure all of our supporters know  exactly what is happening if it changes.’

Another  official said that the use of the stadium was being reviewed ‘on an ongoing  basis and we’ll keep you informed on any decision’.

Democratic convention sources have indicated that the  ‘contingency plan’ is at an advanced stage and that a move to the stadium  appears certain.

The  current Weather Underground forecast for Charlotte on Thursday is: ‘Partly  cloudy with a chance of a thunderstorm and a chance of rain. High of 93F with a  heat index of 99F. Winds from the SW at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain  30%.’

Democratic  convention sources have indicated that the ‘contingency plan’ is at an advanced  stage and that a move to the stadium appears certain.

‘It looks like a done deal to me,’ said one convention worker. ‘The decision’s  apparently been taken and it’s just a matter of spinning it as being forced on us by the weather.’

Convention  delegates, party volunteers and Democratic officials gathered in Charlotte would  make up about one-third of a crowd in the Bank of America stadium, which  officials have said would be 65,000 people.

In  2008, when Obama fever was at its height, the then US Senator had no  trouble  filling an 84,000-seater outside stadium in Denver, Colorado. But voter  enthusiasm has waned this time around.

Obama’s  crowds in 2008 were far bigger than in recent months. His largest audience has  been 14,000 at a campaign kick-off rally at Ohio State University in Columbus,  Ohio in May.

Some 13,000 people were at Obama’s rally at the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado on Sunday.

Michelle Obama tries to ‘Channel’ Ann Romney speech – we don’t buy the ‘Poverty’ stories! DNC is RNC II

After watching an electric and exceptional Republican National Convention last week I was anticipating a slightly less than exceptional opening night for the Democratic National Convention.  But to my surprise I found myself watching a repeat of the RNC – with a different cast of characters.  We had a young, energetic Hispanic give a rousing speech regarding his families’ struggles; how they overcame adversities; and their rise to success.  The Rubio/Castro and Michelle/Ann speeches made me wonder just which convention I was listening to.  Until you got to the substance…….

Senator Marco Rubio related the story of how his bartender father served from the back of the room so he could speak from a podium in the front of the room.  San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro told of his mother’s fight hard for civil rights so that instead of a mop he could hold a microphone at the convention.

Then we saw Michelle Obama give her Ann Romney speech.  Just as Ann Romney described their early struggles as a young couple, Michelle Obama told us about the President’s beat-up car and his dumpster furniture.

While Ann Romney made no pretense of growing up poor, just the struggles of early married life, Michelle Obama claimed she and the president came from families that were just scraping by.

FACT CHECK – not true!

From Brietbart: 

First Lady Michelle Obama’s pitch to voters last night relied on the premise that she and her husband understand what it is to struggle to make ends meet. She spoke movingly about their early years–about how a young Barack Obama drove a car that was “rusted out” and found his furniture “in a dumpster,” how they both came from families that had to “scrape by.” Her fairy tale–however well-delivered–was one great, big, colorful lie.

Both Michelle Robinson and Barack Obama began their adult lives with a leg up on the rest of America. They attended elite schools: Michelle went to Whitney Young, the public magnet school for Chicago’s upper class, while Barack attended Punahou, the private prep school for the top stratum of Hawaiian society. They were accepted to Ivy League schools despite undistinguished credentials, and both attended Harvard Law School.

And this from Stop-Obama:

From ages 0 to 2, Obama was growing up in a family of two inexperienced but economically secure, College Students. From 2-6 he was with his rich grandparents. From 6 – 10, with his well-off stepfather employed by Exxon Oil in Jakarta, living in elite conditions and neighborhoods designated for  foreigners. From age 10 to College Days, Obama lives the Tropical Life with two well off grandparents. One rich, the other idle. Their income was upper upper upper. Since it was they, not Ann, that sponsored most of Obama’s education right through Occidental College, it is their income, and not the perennially absent-student mother, that impacted Obama’s status.

Like Obama, Michelle did not attend an average middle class university, but graduated from Princeton and Harvard Law School. Unlike Obama, this seems to had less to do with her parent’s privilege, although it would have been less likely without her father’s significantly above average income.

Michelle grew up in a supremely middle-class neighborhood and house, but her father already earned 25 % more than a high-school teacher at the time. Considering that high-school teachers have on average earned 20% above the national median, another 25 % above this means that the Robinsons’ household would have found itself anywhere from 35th to 25th income percentile for the nation.

So while most young couples struggle, let’s talk about the real facts – that neither the Obamas nor the Romneys were raised in poverty.  And let’s have a real discussion about our country’s future and the economic impact of the debt and Obama’s policies on our children and grandchildren so they can have the same life choices we had.

As the DNC begins, Ronald Reagan reminds us of the substance of the Democratic Platform! (Video)

Oh how I miss this man!  Although I love Mitt Romney, he can learn quite a bit from watching old Ronald Reagan speeches.  Reagan not only nails this one, he has the acuity to recognize the truth!   As the Democratic National Convention begins, Reagan reminds us of the substance of their platform!

 

 

I must admit I did love Romney’s delivery of Obama’s promise to ‘stop the rising oceans and heal the planet’!

Thank you Ronny and Bring it on Mitt!

Obama (Narcissist in Chief) will have 16 foot Sand Sculpture of Self at DNC!

 

Is there no limit to this man’s vanity and arrogance?  Forget the giant Greek columns – this year’s Democratic National Convention will feature a giant 16-foot sand sculpture, made from 15+ tons of sand, in honor of our narcissistic man-child President.  I thought the self-serving picture of him staring at the moon when Neil Armstrong passed away was about as low as one could go, but I was wrong.  Contrast the humility of Mitt Romney to the arrogance of Barack Obama and you will get a taste of the differences between the two parties.  The liberals flaunt, the conservatives do!
