Valid complaints

I find the president's recent advice to corporate CEOs — quit complaining about regulations/taxes — to be comedy. He states, “I am concerned about making sure that we have a system in which the ordinary person who is working hard and is being responsible can get ahead.”

Then we'll punish them for the crime of getting ahead with regulations and taxes? And confiscate the success for redistribution? In liberalspeak, “regulation” is an excuse for a “fine” (aka extortion).

More Obama: “Feel free to keep your house in the Hamptons and your corporate jet, etc. I'm not concerned about how you're living.” Then why mention it in every speech and interview if you're “not concerned”?

May the taxpayer complain about the use of the ultimate in corporate jets, Air Force One (and its “carbon footprint”), for vacations and fundraising travel for the Democratic Party?

Obama labels some as “folks who don't have a right to complain.” This is still a democracy (for now), with a First Amendment right to complain. Will Dear Leader soon be taking his pen and issuing an executive order to stop certain “folks” from complaining?

Oops! Someone's knocking at my door. Hey, it's the IRS! They want to “talk.”
