Barack Obama: Socialist theft, nonsense, and humour

I’ve been reading Barack’s energy policy, which was a thrill. Here’s three points from there:

Theft

Obama will enact a windfall profits tax on excessive oil company profits to give American families an immediate $1,000 emergency energy rebate to help families pay rising bills. This relief would be a down payment on Obama’s long-term plan to provide middle-class families with at least $1,000 per year in permanent tax relief.

There is no such thing as excessive profits; that is a Socialist/Marxist fiction created to justify the theft of money from companies and the giving of it to the “poor”. In other words, this is Marxist “income redistribution” which attempts to take money from the rich and give it to the poor, so that everyone has the same income. It didn’t work in Russia and it won’t work in America; all it does is discourage the creation of wealth for many people by businesses.

In the long term this harms the “poor” that Obama claims to champion, therefore his supporters are voting for their own poverty.

Also, who defines what is “excessive”? Obama, presumably, and that is wide open to abuse. Is $1 excessive profit? One billion dollars?  Note the use of the emotive word “emergency” to make it sound like Obama is going to rescue the country from a clear and present danger. The only clear and present danger is Socialist politicians like Obama.

Nonsense

Deploy the Cheapest, Cleanest, Fastest Energy Source — Energy Efficiency.

Obama will set an aggressive energy efficiency goal — to reduce electricity demand 15 percent from projected levels by 2020.

Obama, energy efficiency isn’t an energy source, it’s just using less of what you have. What exactly are your qualifications for being the (supposed) Leader Of The Free World?

Humour

At the bottom of the page you can click to “Join The My BO Group”. The mind boggles. Is there a forum where they compare their BO and compete for the title of Skunk of the Month? Do they go to conferences and sniff each other’s armpits? Now, that would be true Marxist egalitarianism.
