Advocating on Behalf of the American Military and Defense on the War on Terror

File this under the "I told you so" folder. And I DO agree with my friend Joe curl that is a barrel of laughs watching the Democrats turn their ire on Uber Leader Obama.


Sometimes, watching a Democrat learn something is wonderful, like seeing the  family dog finally sit and stay at your command.

With   President Obama back in office and his life-saving “fiscal cliff”   bill  jammed through Congress, the new  year has brought a surprising  turn  of  events for his sycophantic  supporters.

“What happened that  my Social  Security withholding’s in my paycheck just   went up?” a  poster wrote on  the liberal site  “My   paycheck just went  down by an amount that I don’t feel comfortable   with. I  guarantee this  decrease is gonna’ hurt me more than the  increase  in income  taxes will  hurt those making over 400 grand. What  happened?”

Shocker. Democrats  who supported the president’s  re-election just had NO   idea that his  steadfast pledge to raise taxes  meant that he was really  going  to raise  taxes. They thought he planned  to just hit those filthy  “1   percenters,” you know, the ones who  earned fortunes through their    inventiveness and hard work. They  thought the free ride would continue    forever.

So this week, as  taxes went up for millions of Americans —  which   Republicans predicted  throughout the campaign would happen — it  was fun  to  watch the  agoggery of the left.

“I know to expect between $93 and $94 less in my paycheck on the 15th,” wrote  the ironically named “RomneyLies.”

“My   boyfriend has had a lot of expenses and is feeling squeezed right    now,  and having his paycheck shrink really didn’t help,” wrote    “DemocratToTheEnd.”

“BlueIndyBlue” added: “Many of my friends didn’t   realize it, either. Our   payroll department didn’t do a good job of   explaining the coming   changes.”

So let’s explain something to our   ill-informed Democratic friends. In   2009, Mr. Obama enacted a “holiday”   on the payroll tax deduction from   employees’ paychecks, dropping the   rate from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent.  But  like the holidays, the drop   ended, and like New Year‘s, the  revelers woke up the next  morning with  a  massive hangover and a pounding  head.

“Bake,” who may have been   trolling the site, jumped into the thread  posted  Friday. “My paycheck   just went down. So did my wife’s. This hurts  us. But  everybody says   it’s a good thing, so I guess we just suck it up  and get used  to it. I   call it a tax increase on the middle class. I  wonder what they call   it.  Somebody on this thread called it a ‘premium.’  Nope. It’s a tax,  and  it  just went up.”

Some in the thread argued that the new tax —  or the  end of the  “holiday,” which makes it a new tax — wouldn’t  really  amount to much.  One calculated it  would cost about $86 a month for  most  people.  “Honeycombe8,” though, said  that amount is nothing to  sneeze  at.

“$86 a month is a lot. That would pay for … Groceries  for a  week, as   someone said. More than what I pay for parking every  month,  after my   employer’s contribution to that. A new computer after a  year. A  new  quality  pair of shoes … every month. Months of my copay  for my  hormones.  A new thick  coat (on sale or at discount place). It  would pay  for what I  spend on my dogs  every month … food, vitamins,  treats.”

The Twittersphere was even funnier.

“Really,  how am I  ever supposed to pay off my student loans if my  already  small  paycheck  keeps getting smaller? Help a sister out, Obama,”  wrote “Meet   Virginia.” “Nancy Thongkham” was much more furious.  “F***ing Obama!   F***  you! This taking out more taxes s*** better f***ing  help me out!!   Very upset  to see my paycheck less today!”
