Obama turning out to be the biggest bait and switcher in Ame
#21
I remember Robin Hood's explanation of why he let the Sheriff of Nottingham get away: better the enemy we know than the one we don't. I always thought that was lame. Sure, the new guy could be worse - but since the one there now is bad, getting a new replacement stands a probable chance of major improvement.

Of course, she is so bad, that much of the things she tries to accomplish aren't. The fear is getting someone in with as bad an ideology yet the competence to get it accomplished.

Robin Hood's original crime was poaching the King's deer. And his band of merry men were actually paid.

One thing Dems do well is save their own skin. Amnesty would be more popular.

There's a Robin Hood story alternated to the world view of right-wingers, I see. Could have hit on it by myself. Marian was a stockholder of Hood Enterprises in your version, I guess?

No, I read the book. The merry men were paid a salary that included the green tights. I can look it up to be specific if you would like. And what made Robin an outlaw was poaching the king's deer. Sorry that is a fact.

Quote:Carl Sigman, copyright date: Sep. 19, 1955

Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the glen,
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, with his band of men,
Feared by the bad, loved by the good,
Robin Hood! Robin Hood! Robin Hood!

He called the greatest archers to a tavern on the green,
They vowed to help the people of the king,
They handled all the trouble on the English country scene,
And still found plenty of time to sing.

Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the glen,
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, with his band of men,
Feared by the bad, loved by the good,
Robin Hood! Robin Hood! Robin Hood!
If Errol Flynn had said to let the Sheriff go he would have been referring to Basil Rathbone - and he was too good a villain to lose - and he had a secondary contract as the European fencing champion to choreograph all the swordfighting scenes. (Basil is on record saying that Danny Kaye was the hardest opponent he ever faced on and off the official competition salle, because his unorthodox comedic style was naturally athletic and impossible to defend - that from The Court Jester, the take-off on Robin Hood, when Rathbone reprised his role as the villain.)

But it was Richard Greene saying it about Alan Wheatley for TV, and that Sheriff was easily outflummoxed and it made sense.

Well, that was a judicial trick of the sheriff, the king was holy landing at the time. Authentic records say that

"loke ye do no husbonde harme
That tilleth with his ploughe.
No more ye shall no gode yeman
That walketh by gren-wode shawe;
Ne no knyght ne no squyer
That wol be a gode felawe".

and

"he was a good outlawe,
And dyde pore men moch god".

Quote:And so he came to dwell in the greenwood that was to his home for many a year to come, never again to see the happy days with the lads and lasses of sweet Locksley Town; for he was outlawed, not only because he had killed a man, bet also because he had poached upon the King's deer, and two hundred pounds were set upon his head, as a reward fro whoever would bring him to the court of the King.

Quote:...Say, good fellow, wilt thou join my merry men all? Three suits of Lincoln green shalt thou have a year, beside twenty marks in fee; thou shalt share all with us and lead a right merry life in the greenwood; for cares have we not and misfortune cometh not upon us with the sweet shades of Sherwood, where we shoot the dun deer,a nd feed upon venison and sweet oaten cakes, and curds and honey. Wilt thou come with me?

Sometimes,we have to give credit to our leaders,whom we tend to constantly deride. I disagree with the POTUS that the current "brokeness" of our nation is bereft of his fingerprints. I do find it refreshing he can admit,"we're already broke".

I wouldn't spend a cent of my money investing in our debt and I'm starting to wonder if others are going to continue to:

But, will he take the lead in doing something about "being broke" other than raising taxes (one way or another)? An honest man would look at cutting government spending, radically since our deficit and debt are getting to be absurd. Actions speak louder than words.

I don't think that's the point of why they are in office. It's going to fail, but it looks good and satisfies the ignorant masses, so they maintain a hold on power that is the end they will try to achieve. You saw all the excitement and hopes of every stupid left-wing group out there that somehow thought they would get to fix the country their way and force people to abide by it.

None of what they do is meant to help the nation, I am convinced of this, it's just to hold onto power by appealing to mob rule and wants. The romans had bread lines and games, so we will I would imagine.

So, expect more gov't handouts/programs, and more taxes to fix this problem along with some good ol' regulation. Cutting gov't and gov't spending? Does this help their power game?

G4u, I agree with your analysis. It is not a happy outcome for our nation.

JT,

No,his solution will be enhanced revenue and not from economic growth.

His problem there is many wealthy are lefties and they aren't thrilled with taxes either. Anything he does to raise revenue will harm the economy and the nation. He has changed the tax write off for wealthy "donations",so guess what? Less donations!

So,folks on the margin are hurt by his ideological rigidity.

His philosophy assumes taxes,revenue and investments are not affected by human thought and actions. They are just what they are,things outside human emotions. Liberals think this way.

Thus,when he sees a rich guy he thinks,"you can afford to pay more" and he's right. What he doesn't think is "this will cause this rich man to save,consume or invest less also which hurts the economy which harms the weakest among us. As always.

Jim Cramer, popular famous wild man of stock analysis, admitted he was a Democrat and could afford to pay more taxes. I wonder if he still thinks so.

They say a mugged liberal is a new conservative. I wonder how many of the limousine liberals will become conservative. They seem to have a strong idealistic guilt ridden commitment to the left. Will they change their minds on this with the new taxes, or will they just maintain their beliefs, consult their tax attorney to avoid taxes?

It always comes down to milking the middle class, taxwise. They are infinitely "moderate" or "responsible", read gullible.

I find it interesting that we didn't seem to have these tax issues with conservatives. Paying taxes only seems to be an issue with tax loving liberals.
