Yahoo Joins The Attack On Capitalism

Yahoo Joins the Attack on Capitalism - Image courtesy: Yahoo

Yahoo is in lock step with the liberal propaganda machine which is trying to artificially create a class warfare battle prior to this year’s election cycle that would make Vladimir Lenin proud. The article in question is currently Yahoo’s lead story and features a photo of Euro Pacific Capital Marketing Director Andrew Schiff. The caption under his picture reads “Andrew Schiff makes enough to put him in the top 1%, but he says it’s not enough.” Underneath the scrolling articles is a group of five thumbnail captions, this caption is even more inflammatory stating “banker’s $350K pay not enough.” To show just how blatantly political Yahoo is being, the actual headline to the Bloomberg article is Bonus Withdrawal Puts Bankers in Malaise.

First and foremost, it’s nobody’s business what anyone in the private sector earns. As taxpayers we have a right to know what those who are employed by the government earn, after all, their salaries are the result of our labor.

Since Yahoo brought it up, let’s look at some truly ridiculous salaries:

Angus T. Jones became the highest paid child actor last year and now earns nearly as much as the aforementioned Andrew Schiff in every episode. That’s right, Jones earns a whopping $300K per episode of Two and a Half Men.

Think that’s bad? All six stars of the hit sitcom Friends earned $1 million per episode.

Socialist propagandists posing as journalists Chris Matthews and Keith Olberman earn more than $5 million per year.

How about liberalism’s favorite son Jon Stewart, he earns at least $1.5 million per year.

Warren Buffet who likes to pretend he’s a common man because his tax rate is only 15% while his secretary pays 36%. Buffet leaves out the fact that he is gaming the system by paying himself through capital gains on his estimated $39 billion net worth which is money that has already been taxed once while his secretary’s pay is earned income. Buffet is free to give more to the government but doesn’t, in fact, he owes over $1 billion in back taxes to the federal government but he wants to make sure YOU pay your fair share.

What about former presidential hopeful John Kerry? Not only is Kerry the richest member of Congress with a net worth of at least $167 million but he likes to manipulate the system to avoid paying his fair share too. Just last year, Kerry bought a new 76 foot yacht and registered the behemoth in Rhode Island avoiding about $500K in sales tax to his home state of Massachusetts as well as an annual tax of $70,000. Who’s not paying their fair share now Senator Kerry?

Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe rakes in $245K per year in salary for making sure the nation’s mail gets delivered. Donahoe isn’t even tasked with making a profit, he is simply asked to break even yet the US Postal Service continues to hemorrhage billions of dollars in red ink to the tune of $7 billion this year that the taxpayers will have to pick up the tab on.

Then there’s my favorite company Fannie Mae, which may be the worst company in American history. This company received more than $382 billion in assistance from America’s taxpayers (which was more than half of all the federal stimulus funds) without repaying a cent, yet, this company continued to shell out hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses to their executives.

I don’t recall Yahoo or anyone else on the left being up in arms over Fannie Mae CEO Franklin Raines raking in his $90 million in bonuses while he ran Fannie Mae into the ground. How about Jamie Gorelick and her $26 million? Why don’t the SEIU and Occupy Wall Street cretins show up on their front yards in protest like they did the Bank of America CEO?

If the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protesters had any intellectual honesty, they would be protesting in front of the homes of Rep. Barney Frank, Senator Chris Dodd - Fannie Mae executives: Franklin Raines, Daniel Mudd, Herbert Allison, Jamie Gorelick, and Michael Wilson as well as Freddie Mac CEO’s Dick Syron and David Moffett. These are the real culprits of the financial meltdown not “unbridled capitalism and companies making their own rules” as President Obama likes to insinuate.

Of course that will never happen. The SEIU, OWS, Yahoo and everyone else on the left are all engaged in waging a war against the American Dream and trying to replace it with Karl Marx’s. Most Americans thought that this war that ended more that two decades ago when communism fell, the problem is that we did not treat the socialist infection that had spread throughout American society. Until we fight and win this last battle, we will not be rid of the scourge that emanated with Marx.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.
