Toles and, by proxy, Klein get it wrong, as usual.

Because the citizens get to keep their own money, the "pie" allegedly being stolen by Obama and the GOP, baked with fruit, sugar, flour, and other bits, all taken by force from said citizenry, won't actually be on that windowsill.

The thievery has been *prevented*. Toles and Klein are thief facilitator propagandists.

Am I to draw the conclusion Obama wants to help the Republicans raid the cookie jar?

msoja is back at it, with top shelf trolling that only comes from years of experience pounding your head with a mallet.

--*msoja is back at it, with top shelf trolling that only comes from years of experience pounding your head with a mallet.*--

So, where did the ingredients for the "pie" come from, MosBen? How can preventing those "ingredients" from being stolen in the first place somehow turn them into a "pie" that your political adversaries then steal?

I understand that Toles and Klein are very sad that the government's ability to bake yummy government pies from money wrung from the citizenry, but Toles' depiction of the situation is a lie.
