Sarah Palin: "The Sugar Daddy Has Run Out Of Sugar"

Sarah Palin, as usual, was very direct this past Saturday in a column she wrote on Facebook.

Saying the "Sugar daddy has run out of sugar," Sarah Palin said Saturday, "Barack Obama’s big government policies continue to fail. He should put a link to the national debt clock on his BlackBerry. The gears on that clock have nearly exploded during his administration. Yesterday’s terrible job numbers should not be a surprise because it all goes back to our debt. Our dangerously unsustainable debt is wiping out our jobs, crippling our economic growth, and jeopardizing our position in the global economy as the leader of the free world."

I seriously doubt that the President will put a debt clock on his BlackBerry and would most likely prefer you not even see the debt clock, much less carry it around in your pocket or purse.

I have linked it below.

She also said, "Most of us don’t see a lot of real leadership in D.C., and it’s profoundly disappointing."

She continued, "But let me tell you where real hope lies. It’s not the hopey-changey stuff we heard about in 2008. Real hope comes from realizing how God has blessed our exceptional nation, and then doing something about it. We have been blessed with natural resources, hardworking entrepreneurs, and a Constitution that preserves the greatest form of government ever devised by man. If we develop those natural resources, allow our entrepreneurs to keep and invest more of what they earn, and adhere to the time-tested truths of our Constitution, we will prosper and endure."

And concluded: "But first and foremost we must tackle our debt. We don’t have the luxury of playing politics as usual. We need real leaders who will put aside their own political self-interest to do what is right for the nation. And if they don’t emerge… well, America has a do-over in November 2012."

I strongly recommend you read the entire column. I also strongly recommend you take a look at the debt clock. These are real numbers in real time.

  1. If you really want to attack the deficit, you need to increase revenue and you do that by raising taxes.

    You've been told that we can't raise taxes on the job creators. It's a nice clean sound byte, but it doesn't hold water after examination. In fact, it's backwards.

    If you want small companies to create jobs, you have to give them incentive. Letting them pay the same low tax rate on ALL profits doesn't do this.

    Under this system, they will hire the minimum number of people to meet customer demand and no more. Hiring beyond customer demand would just be a waste.

    However, if the tax rate jumped substantially (and I do mean substantially) after $250k in profit, they could either pay the taxes or invest those profits over $250k back into the business to avoid paying the higher taxes. They would build buildings, buy equipment, buy advertising, hire people, etc. All things that create jobs.

    And no, they wouldn't just move out of the US.

    This is how it worked in the 50's and 60's and those were some pretty good years for the old US. Check the tax rates back then and see where the record low taxes of today have gotten us.

    Remember, we're talking $250k in PROFIT, not gross sales. This excludes the vast majority of small businesses, but includes the hedge fund managers and rock stars.

    You must think we are really stupid to believe this completely self-serving illiterate. Palin is all talk and no walk - just like every other Con and many Dems. They are just playing with you but you don't get it - you are another simple piece on their chess board. Jesus is way bigger than all these worldly people.
