So the rich aren’t paying their fair share?

So the rich aren’t paying their fair share? Here are two facts for you: 1) They pay a larger percentage of their income in taxes AND, 2) they pay a larger percentage of the total taxes paid. I could just end the rant there but then again it wouldn’t be as much fun.

Hillary, and every other liberal and some libertarians, insist that the top 1 percent pay “Their Fair Share” of the taxes. Well, if they did that they would pay less taxes rather than more. The same holds true for the top five percent. The 10 percenters actually pay their fair share. All the rest pay less than their fair share. These aren’t some wild and crazy right-wing-made up numbers. They come from the Internal Revenue Service for the year 2011. The numbers get worse as time goes by. The Feds have reduced loop holes and raised the percentage the higher brackets pay. Check this chart out.


Print this chart and keep it in your pocket. The next time some liberal puke tries to tell you that the rich don’t pay their fair share show them the chart and give them the link to www.joes-rant.com so they can learn something. I will never understand the logic of, “I worked hard for that degree I obtained in Albino Asian lesbian studies. I don’t know why nobody will hire me. So why don’t you pay my way in life?” attitude

I understand there are people that just don’t have the skills or aptitude to do high paying jobs and that places them on a lower rung of the economic ladder. There are programs that help them learn a trade so they can better themselves.

In the United States poverty is very weird. These numbers are from the Census Bureau for 2011.

Here are the percentages of households below the poverty level that the Census Bureau estimates had the following appliances:

Clothes washer: 68.7%
Clothes dryer: 65.3%
Dish washer: 44.9%
Refrigerator: 97.8%
Food freezer: 26.2%
Stove: 96.6%
Microwave: 93.2%
Air conditioner: 83.4%
Television: 96.1%
Video recorder/DVD: 83.2%
Computer: 58.2%
Telephone (landline): 54.9%
Cell phone: 80.9%

I guess this brings me to the minimum wage. It wasn’t the greatest idea to begin with. The entire premise was so that employers could hire low and no skilled workers so they could learn the job. Once they proved themselves they would earn more. Then the retail industry, especially fast-food decided they could hire kids out of high school for minimum wage with the understanding they would go on to bigger and better things. Ooops! That didn’t happen for many of them. I agree, you can’t feed a family of four on a minimum wage job. The unfortunate thing is that our public education system would rather teach little Johnny that Mary had two mothers and Social Justice than how to add two plus two. This has led a few of generations of IDIOTS who find it easier and more convenient to live in mom’s basement at age 35.

Now the push for a $15.00 minimum wage is going to have one of the following results: 1) The employer will ‘let go’ of some employees to make up for the extra cost. — I need to interrupt myself. Here are a couple of interesting facts. First: Small business owners are not rich! Second: Estimates range as high as 80% of the country’s non-farm employees are employed by small businesses. — 2) The employer can raise his prices. This has been shown to lose customers which leads to layoffs. 3) He can pay the higher minimum wage and keep the employees which will lead to him going bankrupt. 4) find a cheaper way to put his product out like the fast food chain that installed kiosks to take orders and then did option 1. So rather than create an atmosphere where the economy can expand and where people can grow the libtards would rather tax everyone into being serfs to the government. . It didn’t work in the dark ages and it wont work now.

A man tried to sell his neighbor a new dog. “This is a talking dog,” he said. “And you can have him for five dollars. ” The neighbor said, “Who do you think you’re kidding with this talking dog stuff? There ain’t no such animal. “Suddenly the dog looked up with tears in his eyes. “Please buy me, Sir,” he pleaded. “This man is cruel. He never buys me a meal, never bathes me,never takes me for a walk. And I used to be the richest trick dog in America. I performed before kings. I was in the army and was decorated ten times. “Hey! ” said the neighbor. “He can talk. Why do you want to sell him for just five dollars? ” “Because,” said the seller, “I’m getting tired of all his lies. “

What are you thinking?????

What’s going on in the minds of Democrat voters?  No wait! I don’t mean just Hillary
Clinton.  I’m talking about all the lies,
crimes and scandals they have ignored over the decades.  They all can’t all be looking for a free ride
like the growing number of welfare and food stamp recipients.  That means we can divide the rest into two
groups: Those who actually believe the bull caca the demoncRAT politicians
shovel and those politicians who actually shovel said caca.

 

Look at the promises they have made year after year
telling black people how much better they will make their lives by giving them
free stuff and bending, breaking and making new rules to give them advantages
over others.  How’s that working out
there folks?  With all the trillions of
dollars spent on anti-poverty programs since Johnson’s war on poverty  why
is the number of people in poverty greater than when they started?   These programs are designed to fail.  Well not fail. Just keep the beneficiaries
dependent on the system.  The Republicans
are not much better but at least some of them try to make people take
responsibility for themselves. The old saw, “Give them a hand up instead of a
hand out.”  Is closer to the Republican
ideal than the demoncRAT.  Year after
year 80% and more blacks vote for demoncRAT politicians.Why?  Because year after year the politicians make
bigger and bigger promises.  It seems as
long as they have cell phones, flat screen TVs and food stamps they say, “The
really good stuff is coming next time.”

 

Then there is the public education system.  The federal government has no business
meddling in education.  The Department of
Education was created in 1979 by the peanut farmer, second worst president,
Jimmy Carter.  The quality of public
education has suffered for it. The US taxpayer has spent over one hundred
billion dollars a year on the department of education. They have educated NO
children.

The list of demoncRAT lies and boondoggles could fill 100
rants.  This is just a couple to think
about.  Don’t forget how the department
of energy was started to lower energy cost! (There goes that peanut farmer
again!) There goes another thirty billion a year.

 


I’ve pretty much laid off of Hillary and BO because if
you voted for BO not once but twice there isn’t any way I can convince you that
you made two mistakes.  On top of that
you’re probably going to vote for Hillary. Steeeriiiike Three!  Now, Hillary is a proven liar and a thief
just like her husband.  (If you made the
first two strikes and are old enough you probably voted for that sphincter
too!). Just in case you haven’t seen it, Here is a partial list of BO’s lies.


  Here And Here


Here is another one of Hillary’s lies.


Here   and another one  and there are plenty of others.



 I don’t
have the space or time to list them all. HOW CAN YOU VOTE FOR THESE
PEOPLE??  Don’t forget that the area
around Washington DC has the highest average salary and the lowest unemployment
in the country,


 

Trump might be an loud mouthed, bombastic bully but I
believe he can do some good things for the country where Hillary is only out
for Hillary.

 

Late one night, a mugger wearing a ski mask jumped into
the path of a well-dressed man and stuck a gun in his ribs. “Give me your
money “, he demanded. …Indignant, the affluent man replied, “Hey,
watch it - I’m a United States Congressman! ” “In that case,” replied
the mugger, “give me MY money. “


Two alligators were sitting at the side
of the swamp near the lake.

The smaller one turned to the bigger
one and said, ‘I can’t understand how you can be so much bigger than me. We’re
the same age. We were the same size as kids. I just don’t get it.’


‘Well,’ said the big gator, ‘what have
you been eating?’

‘Politicians. Same as you,’ replied the
small gator.

‘Hmm. Well, where do you catch them?’

‘Down the other side of the swamp near
the parking lot by the Capitol.’

‘Same here. Hmm.

‘How do you catch them?’

‘Well, I crawl up under one of their
Lexus cars and wait for one to unlock the car door. Then, I jump out, grab them
by the leg, shake the shit out of them and eat ‘em!’

‘Same here,’ says the big gator.

‘Do you eat Dems or Republicans?’

‘I eat the Dems,’ says the little guy.

‘Ah!’ says the big gator. ‘I think I
see your problem. You’re not getting
any real nourishment. See, by the time you finish shaking the shit out of a
Dem, there’s nothing left but an ass hole and a briefcase.’
