How many people employed by this guy will have to lose their jobs after Obama is President? How many could he have employed in the future who will not get those jobs because Obama took his "wealth" that would have instead gone to hire, train and insure more workers? I wonder:
"Sen. Obama's tax package will hurt my small business. I must stress that I have never been given preferential treatment, nor did I use any resource not available to everyone in this country. I graduated from a public high school and a state college and merely chose to use those resources to advance myself.
"My family consists of husband and wife plus two children in college and three still at home. Even though my small business has made me "rich" and earned over $250,000 last year, I am somehow still not sitting on a pile of money. Maybe part of the reason is that, as a result of being declared "rich," we will pay over $174,000 in federal and state taxes, plus local property taxes. Nonetheless, Sen. Obama has confessed that I will have my taxes increased, resulting in less profit for me to put back into the company. This will ultimately lead to the company having fewer opportunities to grow the business and provide more work for more people."

For all you Obama supporters making under $200,000, do you think this guy is an idiot like Sarah Palin too?
"I came from Cuba. I have seen this movie before [Obama's 'spreading the wealth around'] and I know how it ends. I have heard the same lines, spoken by different actors, the Castro brothers in my case and more recently by Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. With all his refined education and eloquence, Mr. Obama is just another socialist who thinks that our American-trained socialists will make socialism work here, while all those others around the world have failed. We are so much smarter here."

If they were McCain donors, you know the press and the Dems would be tarring, feathering and disbarring them.
Even the not-conservative-by-any-stretch New York Times finds ACORN a thornier-than-expected problem:
"The New York Times, however, has a report suggesting that there's a large hype quotient to the new registrations. The culprit is Acorn, or as the Times headline calls it, 'Group:'
'On Oct. 6, the community organizing group Acorn and an affiliated charity called Project Vote announced with jubilation that they had registered 1.3 million new voters. But it turns out the claim was a wild exaggeration, and the real number of newly registered voters nationwide is closer to 450,000, Project Vote's executive director, Michael Slater, said in an interview.
'The remainder are registered voters who were changing their address and roughly 400,000 that were rejected by election officials for a variety of reasons, including duplicate registrations, incomplete forms and fraudulent submissions from low-paid field workers trying to please their supervisors, Mr. Slater acknowledged.
'In registration drives, it is common for a percentage of newly registered voters to be disqualified for various reasons, although experts say the percentage is higher when groups pay workers to gather registrations. But [it was disclosed] on Thursday that 30 percent of Acorn's registrations were faulty...'"
Again, if this were REPUBLICANS doing this, the howls would be heard from sea to shining sea.
Get over yourselves, Democrats-for-Obama. You now shamelessly throw down the race card and/or the "smears" card against any who expose the truth about ACORN et. al. I suppose that's the only defense you have against these truths: no defense at all, only offense.
And STAY TUNED: I have a new chart coming in a day or two. Those of you who make less than $200,000 a year are really going to want to see this set of facts. Unless of course you really don't want to know how exactly Obama "pays for every dime" of his proposals because you "just believe."
The Tooth Fairy isn't real either.
