Our President has tried his best to divert our attention away from the one item on the current agenda that all small businesses and 95% of Americans are concerned about–whether their taxes will increase or stay the same come January 1, 2011. Our President has talked about the war in Afghanistan, the military “don’t ask don’t tell” policy, the fat content of school lunches–but has avoided this subject as much as possible.
He began by telling us that he would not extend the “failed policies of the past which put us in this position in the first place.” Then he talked (right before the election) about maybe extending some of the tax cuts but certainly not the ones on the “rich.” Then he began to change his definition of “rich.” Now that the Senate has blocked the House version of extending some while not others, the Obama administration is saying that they will consider granting the peasants their wish this Christmas and extend all of the tax cuts as long as Congress also agrees to extend unemployment benefits.
Well thank you Santa for granting our wish, albeit on YOUR terms. After all, how silly of us, the stupid public, to forget that no idea is a good idea, unless it is an Obama idea.
But wait, there’s more…
After all, you know from the Democrats that society cannot think on its own–it needs the guidance and the direction of the Federal government in all aspects of its existence. But the Government cannot do it all–so it has surrogates…Like Oprah Winfrey.
Thank Harpo we have the annual “Oprah’s Ultimate Favorite Things 2010” so we can get the “RIGHT” Christmas present this year. As the article says (and no, I’m not making this up) “And if Oprah likes ’em, it’s pretty much a given that those who receive these items will like them, too.”
Really? So I suppose Christmas is really about Oprah? What has she had to say about Christmas?
“Jesus cannot be the only way to heaven.”
“One of the mistakes that human beings make is believing that there is only one way to live, there are many paths to what you call God.”
However, what is clear is that there are not many paths to Christmas joy–there is one, Oprah’s Ultimate Favorite Things list. Thank Harpo she is here to help us.
