How much is too much?

As a kid, I watched a TV show that featured the hero Robin Hood. In a deja vu thing, I wonder if I am seeing the concept being repackaged and thrown at me.

By Obama’s own words, on video, to an Ohio plumber, Barack said, “I’m just trying to spread the wealth.” He feels we need to redistribute your income to help those below you.

Honesty in a politician is refreshing. Unfortunately, that was a mistake that seems to be hidden on most media outlets.

Who is Obama to decide I make too much or you make too much, and he has the right to “redistribute” wealth? Name me one socialistic nation that has succeeded!

America has succeeded because of the people who wanted to better themselves. Socialism brings all to a level of shared misery. Mark my words! If Obama is elected, before he is inaugurated he will “discover” the need to raise taxes on a level well below $250,000. More shared misery. It’s a little different when your pocket is picked.

Suppose 15 years ago I went to a party at the home of someone now convicted of, say, embezzlement. Am I at fault? Of course not. So let’s give Barack a pass on Ayers. Once is just a coincidence.

But let’s factor in some other folks. Bernadette Dohrn, Ayers’ wife, is a terrorist. Obama’s campaign fundraiser is a lady named Katz. She is a former SDS terrorist and now a top fundraiser. Obama has confirmed in his book that the Rev. Wright is one of his most influential people. Convicted felon Rezko gave at least one sweetheart deal to Obama.

Smoke equals fire in this case.
