Today James Lewis at AT wrote one of the best pieces I have ever read, The Rapacity of Odacity, and he does such a fantastic job of highlighting the regressiveness and greed of the class envy celebrated by the Democratic Party and lefties everywhere.
He writes about the idea of the "pie" and how socialists and communists (read: the Democrats today) don't seem to understand that they may be sharing the pie more evenly, but that the pie itself becomes smaller, so there is less to go around altogether!
He also quotes Michelle Obama from a speech:
"The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more."
I wonder who that someone is Michelle? You and Barry? Errmmm....probably not. Considering the Obama's charitable donation records, it is probably another case of rules for thee but not for me. Let us not forget the, what is it now, FOUR Obama nominees who are all guilty of tax evasion as well.
Here's a thought: what if Obama's nominees all paid their taxes honestly, and more liberals and Democrats gave willingly to charity, like Conservatives and Libertarians? Imagine how much more money would be given directly to the needy, rather than flowing through the federal government bureaucracy gauntlet...

Anyway, what I am saying is that all this smearing of Capitalism and our free-markets is insanely wrong, and that when the Obamas and all of the other Democrats start putting their OWN money where their mouths are, at least I'll think they mean it when they say they want to help the needy.
