I think this video hits the nail on the head for a LOT of people. My boss and one of the other editors I work with are both huge fundies. And this is basically the kind of crap they spew when they try to talk about politics.

The fact that I disagree with Obama's policies and think that he is a bad President has nothing to do with the fact that I am a Christian. You use this term to put a "crazy" label on Christian conservatives which more often than not is about as far away from the truth as possible. I'm not really sure which 'fundie comments' e90im is referring to. I'd love to see one that shows an overzealous Jesus-freak tone to try and prove a point.

e90im- I promise you I'm not the only one on this board that knows that if there is anyone on this board that is truly 'crazy', it's probably you. I'm not a 'fundie', if you choose to label me as such, or claim that I have a closet full of tin foil hats of all shapes and sizes to try and prove that my political stance is religiously biased to the point that I lose all credibility, then that is your choice.

The craziest people are the ones who know they aren't crazy.

Funny thing about being crazy. Statistics say that 1 out of every 4 people are mentally ill. So the basic rule of thumb is this; check with 3 friends, if they are all pretty sane, guess what, you're nuts.

I thought the video was a bad parody/spoof actually....



And what is a "fundie"? Haven't heard that one before. Just looked it up, no wonder I haven't heard it before...

Sure its a spoof. But its not far off. Obama getting elected brought alot of racists out of the closet.

The Christian Poor White Trash Party is up and running. Its called the Tea Party.

Actually it would the Christian Rich White Trash Party, because high taxes are their main grievance. Poor people don't pay taxes. In fact, last time I checked something like 40% of the country pays no taxes. Those are Democrats.

47%, according to this AP article on Yahoo! Finance:
Nearly half of US households pay no tax.

Of those, I'm certain that quite a few actually get more money back then they even paid in.

Stand out quote:

It is a system in which the top 10 percent of earners -- households making an average of $366,400 in 2006 -- paid about 73 percent of the income taxes collected by the federal government.
Those damn rich people, not even paying their fair share of taxes.........Wait, what? You mean they are generally paying significantly MORE than their fair share? So all those idiots saying the rich "just need to pay their fair share" are really saying the rich should pay less? I'm on board with that!!! NOBODY should get a free ride. Nobody. I believe everyone has to pay at least something, even a token amount.

You've heard of payroll taxes, right? Social Security? Medicare? Guess who pays them? Everyone who earns any income. Which tax is capped at a maximum income level, currently $106,800? Social Security. The payroll tax rate is essentially 15% for those below the cap (~6% SS tax you pay, 6% your employer pays, 3% Medicare) and thus the 12% of SS tax is capped at 106,800. So, the person earning ~106,800 pays about 13.2k in taxes (6.6k right out of the check, and 6.6 from the employer, which is functionally just reducing your salary by the same amount). Meanwhile, Mark Zuckerberg and his $3 billion in Facebook salary last year also pay 13.2k. Boo hoo for the billionaire.

When you include payroll tax burden, it's not the rich the pay the highest tax burden, it's the 80-95% income, the almost rich. Minimum wage workers may not pay income tax but they pay 15% payroll tax. They don't make money off of the federal government each year.

Fail. It's supposed to be a parody. E90im posted like four of his videos in separate threads for some reason.
