Kudos to the Ohio Plumber!!

NO OBAMA YOU DO NOT HAVE MY VOTE!!! I just got what feels like the millionth call from the Obama campaign please call again because I LOVE saying NOBAMA!! I am sorry I cannot justify voting for you. You have not said anything that makes me like you but everything to make me disgusted at the thought of you for president.

I have been busy and not online and we don't do much tv and stations are scarce so lots of cds. But finally I have a minute and I want to say THANK YOU to this plumber whos name escapes me ....Joe the moment for putting obama on the spot with good questions. Seriously he worked his butt off to get to his point in life WHY should he have to take HIS hard earned money and spread to those that want to sit on their ass and collect a check from the government for doing nothing but saying yes thank you for that check, thank you for the food stamps, thank you for the medical thank you for taking care of me so I don't have to have any personal responsibility.

Believe me we have had hard times, we have had to use state medical, food assistance etc. I am not proud of it but we worked hard and got off of it. It wasn't until AFTER the Clinton years we were able to do as such. I fear the thought of going back on the government dole just to support my family. I REFUSE to do so if it means I go without that is what will happen.

Are we rich? Hell no nor do we want to be. I am not even sure we are considered middle class, BUT I feel we have more than many. We are working hard for complete freedom of debt and in the spring will be there, BUT I am not repeat NOT going to share what we have worked so hard to accomplish with those that want to sit on their asses or pop out more babies for more government assistance. We worked damn hard to get what we have and have struggled every step of the way to get here. If you want something bad enough you will work for it. Plain and simple.

You know I say I am a wahm. But really I find it is more a hobby and I end up pretty much giving away my gifts of taking photos to those that need them. Whether it is for shelter donation work or families that are having hard times. It comes down to they are able to have those memories, I get to do something I love even if I don't make any money.

Wonder how willing Barack and Michelle are going to be to spread their wealth around?

Found my own answer actually:

This is how willing Barack is to spread his wealth around: In 2007, President George W. Bush and his wife had an adjusted gross income of $923,807. They paid $221,635 in taxes, and donated $165,660 to charity — or 18 percent of their income.

Vice President and Mrs. Cheney, in 2007, had a taxable income of $3.04 million. And they paid $602,651 in taxes, and donated $166,547 to charity — or 5.5 percent of their income.

Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, earned between $200,000 and $300,000 a year between 2000 and 2004, and they donated less than 1 percent to charity. When their income soared to $4.2 million in 2007, their charitable contributions went up to 5 percent.

Joe and Jill Biden, by contrast, made $319,853 and gave $995 to charity in 2007, or 0.3 percent of their income. And that was during the year Biden was running for president. Over the past 10 years, the Bidens earned $2,450,042 and gave $3,690 to charity — or 0.1 percent of their income.

So let’s sum up. The “compassionate” liberals — at least based on charitable giving — show less compassion than “hardhearted” conservatives. The rich pay more in income taxes than people think. Voters, clueless about the facts, want the rich to pay still more.
