My previous post featured once and future (and former SNL) airhead Victoria Jackson playing her ukulele and singing a ditty called "There's a Communist Living In The White House".
Well....if there is a commie, living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue it must be news to the President of the United States and The First Lady- President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle made $ 5.5 million in 2009, according to their joint Federal Income Tax return.
The Obamas paid $1.8 million in Federal Income Tax. Most of their income was generated by book sales. The First Couple donated $329,000 to 40 different charities, with the largest donations of $50,000 going to CARE and The United Negro College Fund.
Additionally, the the President donated his his $1.4 million Nobel Peace Prize to 10 charities.
The Obamas actually overpaid their 2009 taxes by $8,287 in 2009. The overpayment will be applied to their 2010 income taxes.
Alright- the last time I checked a communist was a person who adhered to the concept of communism, which is defined as ....
1 a : a theory advocating elimination of private property b : a system in which goods are owned in common and are available to all as needed
2 capitalized a : a doctrine based on revolutionary Marxian socialism and Marxism-Leninism that was the official ideology of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics b : a totalitarian system of government in which a single authoritarian party controls state-owned means of production c : a final stage of society in Marxist theory in which the state has withered away and economic goods are distributed equitably d : communist systems collectively
Some of the President's critics- many of whom can be found in the most extreme elements of the Tea Party movement- claim that Mr. Obama is a Communist. The President made $5.5 million last year mainly in book sales.
So I propose this....Mr. Obama's next book should be titled "How To Make Millions In Your Spare Time As A Stay At Home Commie". He can even sell it on QVC or HSN. Heck, maybe even ShopNBC- they're the sister network of MSNBC, with all of those tree huggin' pinkos looking for new ways to destroy the fabric of American society.
All kidding aside....when was the last time you saw ANY millionaire wearing a tee with Marx on it? And I don't mean Groucho.
If Mr. Obama's a communist, then I'm an astronaut....I mean, I can see the moon from my house.
Wow....that remark was so PALIN!
