Socialism at it’s best

Obama:

…part of what I’m hoping to introduce as the next president is a new ethic of responsibility where we say that if you’re laying off workers, the least you can do when you’re making $25 million a year is give up some of your compensation and some of your bonuses … That kind of notion of shared benefits and burdens is something that I think has been lost for too long, and it’s something that I’d like to see restored.”

So, can someone please tell me how this is not socialistic?   Anyone? Anyone?  You know what’s next don’t you?  Your company lays off people and then Govco comes in and looks at YOUR compensation and says that X number of employees making this much money must take a pay cut because they make too much. 

Nice.

    1. Raise Minimum Wage to $27 an hour.
    2. Establish a Maximum of $81 an hour or $169,480 a year salary.
    3. Tax income over $150,000 at a 75% rate.
    4. Tax business profits over $1,000,000 at a 75% rate.
    5. Tax capital gains at a 75% rate.
    6. Remove all limits on abortion and tax living children at a rate of $2,000 a year to cover the increase of a family’s Carbon Footprint.
    7. Legalize doctor assisted suicide.
    8. Use Hate Crime legislation to prosecute people who speak out against the President.
    9. Use Hate Crime legislation to prosecute people who support legislation similar to “Prop 8”.
    10. Use “separation of church and State” to remove Christmas as a Federal Holiday, make Nativity Scenes illegal on State and Federal property, and make the Post Office deliver the mail on Sunday.

    Are there any reason(s) why any of this is NOT possible under an Obama regime?

    Would you mind clearing it with me before you mention my name in your post – especially if you are going to be a tool about it? I would appreciate it.

    When was this part of our American history on the corporate level?
