Politics of Change : Bury Joe the Plumber, Ignore Marxist Wealth Redistribution

Ok, normally, The Peregrin Falcon is not a one-tune post kind of blog. My tendancy for being distracted usually kicks in by now.

However, the simply blatant disgust with a ordinary man who is flawed like all other people (including myself) is beyond belief.

Real Deal on ‘Joe the Plumber’ Reveals New Slant
By Larry Rohter

“Thomas Joseph, the business manager …, said Thursday that Mr. Wurzelbacher had never held a plumber’s license, which is required in Toledo …”

Is ‘Joe the Plumber’ a plumber? That’s debatable

Of course now that this blew up in the Washington Posts’ faces they make this link subscriber only. So, google this http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/10/16/AR2008101600728.html and you’ll see the article for yourself.

Joe the Plumber’s story has sprung a few leaks

“…And court documents show he owes nearly $1,200 in back taxes. “Joe,” whose name is Samuel…”

To me the stories above are an obvious attempt to ruin one man while simultaneously and surreptitiously suppressing the real question and answer that happened that day.

To paraphrase; Joe said – Hey isn’t your tax plan going to raise my taxes? and Obama said – Yes, but your money will be going to help others who don’t have enough of their own.

DING! That’s the story ladies and gentleman. Obama thinks that small-businesses who earn over $250,000 in a year should give to people who don’t. He wants to redistribute the wealth.

Let’s put it this way:


The doctrines of Karl Marx and his associate Friedrich Engels on economics, politics, and society. They include the notion of economic determinism — that political and social structures are determined by the economic conditions of people. Marxism calls for a classless society in which all means of production are commonly owned (communism), a system to be reached as an inevitable result of the struggle between the leaders of capitalism and the workers.

marxism. (n.d.). The American Heritage® New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy, Third Edition. Retrieved October 21, 2008, from Dictionary.com website: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/marxism

Did you see the words COMMUNISM, CLASSLESS? Did you see the relationship to spreading the wealth around and to liquidating the capitalist system of government?


I apologize to my regular readers for beating the dead horse, but sometimes it simply can’t be helped.

I hope you learned something from today’s rant.
