Listening to Obama with interest in the Presidential debates — not because I like what I hear but because what Obama says is decidedly nonsensical — and attempting to confront his nonsense with Liberals afterward is an exercise in futility: because (on average, in my experience and the experience of many Conservatives I correspond with) Liberals supporting Obama don’t understand “business” — be it small or large or anything in between — and reject any information anyone not in Obama’s Temple will express to them. And because they’re not voting for what Obama says and plans to do, but on other factors, like vanity.
THUS, read this from Patterico:
OBAMA’S TAX PLAN AND SMALL BUSINESS
From Rush Limbaugh:
EXPLAINED: OBAMA’S LIES ABOUT RAISING TAXES ON SMALL BUSINESS
Obama does not know what he’s talking about (“tax cuts” for “people making under $250,000.00 a year — the majority of small businesses make under $250,000.00 a year…”) , and he’s selling snake-oil to people who either don’t care that it’s snake oil, or, they are not interested in electing anyone who might make sense, so they support Obama’s nonsense, repeating it while themselves being unable to explain just what they’re then repeating, what it may mean.
Obama harps about “tax cuts” when what he is describing, instead, is welfare as to those indivdiuals (not necessarily businesses, because Obama’s selling his oil on this “$250,000.00” annual income figure by combining his pretense of being fair to “small business” and to individuals) who comprise his “90%” who he alleges he’ll “cut taxes” for, even for the forty percent among those who don’t pay federal income taxes (if you get a check from Obama and you haven’t paid income taxes, you are not getting a “cut” or even an actual refund, but you’re getting some of the personal property of other Americans that Obama has lifted so he can you off).
ON THE OTHER HAND, maybe Obama DOES know what he’s talking about but he’s using his snake-oil explanations to fool a lot of people who know very little to nothing about snake-oil.
Which is what I think Obama is doing: intentionally misleading people inorder to gain control over other people’s property. Is there anything other than a deceptive Marxist? No, no there isn’t.
