This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

DEBATE FACT #5: WHO IS JOE THE PLUMBER?

~Snooper~


"That's the American Dream to me. You work hard. You’re going to get what you want eventually. It's not going to happen overnight by no means, but if you work hard enough you will get it. I resent the government or Obama's plan to take more away from me." – Joe Wurzelbacher, AKA “Joe The Plumber”


FOX News' "Your World"

Neil Cavuto: "Well, you know, you're the type of guy who these tax increases of his could affect, or with a cutoff that his could affect, and you don't fit this gazillionaire model. In other words, you're not the Henry Kravis types, but you're in that group that would see your tax es hiked. What do you think of that?"

Joe Wurzelbacher: "Well, it's, you know – I don't know how much of the video is shown, but I'm living in a simple middle-class home. Most of the homes go from anywhere from $90,000 at the lowest to maybe $140,000 at the highest. You know, just working, and when I do purchase the rest of this company and move forward, I will be living there still, because, one, I don't want to keep up with the Joneses, and two, I just couldn't really afford a bigger house. I’m going to have to work harder to make that company go. I want to put more trucks on the road and his tax increases kind of hurts that aspect."

Cavuto: "Some people interpreted his remark as sort of like Robin Hood-ish, Joe, that it was a redistribution of wealth. Taking from guys like you to help people who are not as well off as you. What do you think of that?"

Wurzelbacher: "Robin Hood stole from greedy rich people and redistributed it to the peasants, so to speak, so if he’s calling us peasants, I kind of resent that. I'm the same class of people that went from paycheck to paycheck living to finally being able to save some money, and it’s just – you work and hard work. That's the American Dream to me. You work hard. You’re going to get what you want eventually. It's not going to happen overnight by no means, but if you work hard enough you will get it. I resent the government or Obama's plan to take more away from me."
