The Ideology of Envy

Image result for images of hillary rolling in money

Say hey, remember this? Candidate Obama to Joe the Plumber: “I do think, at a certain point, you’ve made enough money.” (

Note the operative word is “you,” as in “you, not me.” If you are Obama, or Clinton, or Pelosi, or Kerry, or Gore, you never, never, never reach that point where you’ve made “enough money” and the government might as well just scarf up every cent you make beyond that.

And leftids buy it. Do they ever. How many times have you heard one of them complain that no one should be “allowed” to make more than a certain amount of money? And yet that never, never, never applies to Democrat politicians who get half a million bucks just for showing up to make a ten-minute speech, pouting, whining football players, air-headed movie stars, or “rap artistes.” Leftids never complain about their masters earning virtually infinite amounts of money. If you are Donald Trump, you have “too much money.” If you’re Hillary Clinton, who’s counting?

God help us, millions of us vote for these people.

They’re always yammering about Income Inequality, but I have yet to hear them propose a scheme to make my income equal to John Kerry’s, or to damp down his income until it’s equal to mine.

But then who really thinks they mean a single word they say?

  1. It’s a religion, pure and simple. There are religions in existence that choose to deny the facts. ALL that matters is the belief system. The same applies to liberals.

  2. You did it again, Lee. Out of context until you consider the entire quote….

    “We’re not, we’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money. But, you know, part of the American way is, you know, you can just keep on making it if you’re providing a good product or providing good service. We don’t want people to stop, ah, fulfilling the core responsibilities of the financial system to help grow our economy.”
    This might help.

    Why do I have to always do your fact checking for you? 🙂
    Hell, and I’m not even a die hard liberal.

    1. Doug is a die-hard liberal in my book until i see differently – and glad to have him and his comments aboard. We learn the most from those who oppose us – those who agree with us a just a comfort.

    2. Thanks for you words of accommodation, sir. No.. not a die-hard liberal by any stretch. You might say a die-hard anti-Trump; I’m perfectly willing to accept VP Pence in his stead… for the duration of the term, at least. 🙂
