Obama Calls People Earning $250,000 a Year Jet Owners - The Wealth Report - WSJ

Whoa, class warfare! Because that is exactly how he said it, word for word. And the logic of this makes total sense if you hate logic or smart things and embrace stupidity.

Seriously. My step-dad has to be in a flying club and share his airplane with like 30 other people. 

The problem is that most of the people that would be subject to the higher taxes the president wants aren’t likely to be private-jet owners.  Someone earning $250,000 a year–among those scheduled for a tax increase in 2012–is unlikely to afford a jet–or even a few charter trips on a jet.”

Whoa. Whoa. People earning a quarter of a million dollars a year probably can only afford to take a couple trips per year by private jet. They’re not mega-rich like those public school teachers or people on welfare! I collected unemployment last year, and it covered my rent, bills, groceries, AND my own yacht.

I’m sorry you don’t own a jet. I’d really like to own an island. Or a fully staffed yacht. Or a mansion. Or a big house. Or a regular sized house. Or a car, a shitty, little, inexpensive car that gets decent gas mileage.
