The dinner roll..


The Dinner Roll...

Once upon a time I was invited to the White House for a private dinner with the President.

I am a respected businessman, with a factory that produces memory chips for computers and portable electronics.

There was some talk that my industry was being scrutinized by the administration, but I paid it no mind. I live in a FREE country. There's nothing that the government can do to me if I've broken no laws. My wealth was EARNED honestly, and an invitation to dinner with an
American President is an honor.

I checked my coat, was greeted by the Chief of Staff, and joined the President in a yellow dining room.

We sat across from each other at a table draped in white linen. The Great Seal was embossed on the china. Uniformed staff served our dinner.

The meal was served , and I was startled when my waiter suddenly reached out, plucked a dinner roll off my plate and began nibbling it as he walked back to the kitchen..

"Sorry 'bout that," said the President. "Andrew is very hungry."

"I don't appreciate..." I began, but as I looked into the calm brown eyes across from me, I felt immediately guilty and petty. It was just a dinner roll. "Of course," I concluded, and reached for my glass.

Before I could, however, another waiter reached forward, took the glass away and swallowed the wine in a single gulp. "And his brother, Eric, is very thirsty," said the President.

I didn't say anything. The President is testing my compassion, I thought. I withheld my comments and decided to play along. I don't want to seem unkind..

My plate was whisked away before I had tasted a bite.

"Eric's children are also quite hungry."

With a lurch, I crashed to the floor. My chair had been pulled out from under me.

I stood, brushing myself off angrily, and watched as it was carried from the room.

And their grandmother can't stand for long."

I excused myself, smiling outwardly, but inside feeling like a fool.

Obviously I had been invited to the White House to be sport for some game. I reached for my coat, to find that it had been taken.

I turned back to the President.

"Their grandfather doesn't like the cold."

I wanted to shout, "that was my coat!" But again, I looked at the placid smiling face of my host and decided I was being a poor sport. I spread my hands helplessly and chuckled.

Then I felt my hip pocket and realized my wallet was gone. I excused myself and walked to a phone on an elegant side table.

I learned shortly that my credit cards had been maxed out, my bank accounts emptied, my retirement and equity portfolios had vanished, and my wife had been thrown out of our home.

Apparently, the waiters and their families were moving in. The President hadn't moved or spoken as I learned all this, but finally I lowered the phone into its cradle and turned to face him.

"Andrew's whole family has made bad financial decisions.. They haven't planned for retirement and they need a house. They recently defaulted on a subprime mortgage. I told them they could have your home. They need it more than you do."

My hands were shaking. I felt faint. I stumbled back to the table and knelt on the floor.

The President cheerfully cut his meat, ate his steak, and drank his wine. I lowered my eyes and stared at the small grey circles on the tablecloth that were water drops.

"By the way," he added , "I have just signed an Executive Order nationalizing your factories.

I'm firing you as head of your business. I'll be operating the firm now for the benefit of all mankind.

There's a whole bunch of Erics and Andrews out there and they can't come to you for jobs groveling like beggars..we need to spread YOUR wealth around..."

I looked up. The President dropped his spoon into the empty ramekin which had been his crème Brule.

He drained the last drops of his wine. As the table was cleared, he lit a cigarette and leaned back in his chair.

He stared at me.. I clung to the edge of the table as if it were a ledge and I were a man hanging over an abyss.

I thought of the years behind me, of the life I had lived. The life I had earned with a lifetime of work, risk and struggle.

Why was I punished? How had I allowed it to be taken? What game had I played and lost? I looked across the table and noticed with some surprise that there was no game board between us.

What had I done wrong?

As if answering the unspoken thought, the President suddenly cocked his head, locked his empty eyes to mine, and bared a million teeth, chuckling wryly as he folded his hands.

"You should have stopped me at the dinner roll,"he said.

I have given it some thought, and I can't seem to think of a single occasion where the current president raised any of our taxes.

Perhaps you can give me an example of an Obama tax increase to show how relevant your rantings are?

Are you kidding me PowerStroker?

The hallmark of the Democratic mantra to lower the deficit is "Increasing Revenue" aka "TAX INCREASES" and if you think your tax rate wont increase once the Bush tax laws expire you better think again.

Soon Americans will face a tax/fine in the event they do not carry medical insurance! Look at what happened to GM and Chrysler! This whole "redistribution" of wealth is selective PowerStroker! You wont see any of that money PowerStroker! The current administration want's to pick and choose winners, own the big business and get America ensnared in a bunch of international agreements as to water down our rights and place us in a compromising position.

What are Obama and the Democrats doing to help out Small Business people PowerStroker? He is giving half trillion dollar loans to companies that go bankrupt just a few years later, and even worse all the employees will be getting federal assistance and 99+ weeks of unemployment, and for what? For failure?

Hell the USDA gave "The Stellar Enterprise LLC" $3,000,000.00 for a green technoligy they were employing, I caught up with them to find out they are now in "Real Estate"! Ill be sure to update that thread!

Nothing but a bunch of lazy cheats getting rewarded and it's all enough to make me sick! So in essence it's almost like taking "the dinner roll" from my belly.

Oh and by the way, Happy Thanksgiving PowerStroker!

The automatic expiration of a Republican tax cut, does not a Democratic tax increase make.  Please try again.

Soon Americans will face a tax/fine in the event they do not carry medical insurance!

A fine of $0.00 as written in to law.  If however someone fails to buy health insurance, they will not qualify for the health insurance tax credit.  Just like a person who doesn't have a mortgage doesn't get to write off the interest at the end of the year.  Please try again.

Look at what happened to GM and Chrysler! This whole "redistribution" of wealth is selective PowerStroker! You wont see any of that money PowerStroker! The current administration want's to pick and choose winners, own the big business and get America ensnared in a bunch of international agreements as to water down our rights and place us in a compromising position.

I don't see how Saving GM and Chrysler caused your taxes to go up... because it didn't.  Please try again.

What are the Republican's doing for small business people?  That question isn't relevant to this discussion about taxes anyway.  Please try again.

Hell the USDA gave "The Stellar Enterprise LLC" $3,000,000.00 for a green technoligy they were employing, I caught up with them to find out they are now in "Real Estate"! Ill be sure to update that thread!

How did that cause your taxes to go up?  Please try again.

Nothing but a bunch of lazy cheats getting rewarded and it's all enough to make me sick! So in essence it's almost like taking "the dinner roll" from my belly.

Not really, you would actually have to pay higher taxes in order to have any chance of making sense there.  Please try again.

Oh and by the way, Happy Thanksgiving PowerStroker! 

Happy Thanksgiving Rex!

But of course the Obama Administration made every costly piece of "signature" legislation take effect AFTER his re-election campaign.

You must think everyone else is stupid.

So you're saying that 3/4 through his first term, he hasn't raised your taxes a single dollar?

Then why are you starting threads that suggest he did?

This is the reason people who watch Fox "News" are less informed than people who don't watch news at all.

PowerStroker you know damn well that tax increases are a part of Obama's vision for the nation!

I think you will find that Americans are going to stop him at the dinner roll.

You should also note that I read not only FOX, but also MSNBC, NYTimes, and also Yahoo. I don't watch any TV news. Online only. So that kind of blows a hole in your claims.

This thread is about MORE than just taxes. Did you even read it?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHAWNEE!

Did I read you correct that you're moving? That's a major life event right there brother!

What got you to wanting to move? 

Don't feel bad about TG dinner though, here in Michigan they got my whole family scared... spent the day with my youngest son and the wife and my Mom made us a most delicious TG Dinner, but due to Democrats she was too worried about eating with us... Same for my Grandmother who we always go and see, but with the stigma they are putting on TG it just didn't happen. 

Tell us about your move! Are you happy about it? Not happy about it? How about the Vette? Did you part ways with her? I know you were thinking about it because it was just sitting, lord knows thats all mine has been doing and everyone telling me to sell it, but I dunno just yet. It's paid off and if shit ever goes too bad it's about all I got in terms of material things that makes me smile and feel young again. 

Happy Thanksgiving Shawnee!

 Thank you. I'll celebrate it later once moved.

Been a looooong move, try moving a "farm" I did get 2 men and a truck for sofas, big fridge, bed. Rain, snow, ice tonight. Mud everywhere, cold. Toom my tractor and another hooked to me to pull the moving truck out of the mud. All a pain in the ass!

Nice place, 12 years old, Brick ranch, a one car and a 2 car attached garage, finished attic and basement, 3200 sq. 11 acre mostly landscaped. Very quiet! 5 mile road, 3 homes counting mine. In a 12 hr period I may see 1 or 2 vehicles and 2 side by sides. Or none. 

Here's a pic, need to cure the allgae on the shingles but it doesn't hurt them. Gonna be a steel roof next year. Along with a Cummings generator (bout 20KW), woodstove, shop, tractor shed.

That's a nice looking pad you got there Shawnee!

A generator is always very nice for when the power goes out too! Looks like you will have lots to keep you busy over the summer!

11 acers isn't bad at all! Think I got like .3 here in the township surrounded by liberals.

Thanks Sell. The "last place" Good quiet, nice place to settle back.

There is Kohler, Generac and Cummings. Cummings is my choice, longest run on engines. Comes with a built in pad, comes with auto bus transfer switch. $300 more than Generac but Generac you have to buy the ABT for $400.

11 is plenty, trap shoot there, excellent garden spots. I have 13 here but it's more woodsy, weedy lots tractor work, hay, bushhog and all.

There it is again... I am starting to feel like maybe you're a little bent out of shape about the steak awards we were offering back in our earlier years for whoever was the first to make it to 1,000 post! LOL

Back then people wouldn't even give me their address to send t-shirts... and like Stoma is really gonna give me his address... LOL

Seems like you really want to try one of them Trump steaks! I'm sure he sourced the meat from some company and it's probably still active... why don't you do some research Rastus and maybe we can all get together and have a Trump roast party?

What better place to show-off Trump Steaks than this thread, since it deals with politicians stealing from your pocket when you're not looking...

The real question at hand, is did Mr.Trumpdt deliver YOU one-of-his-steaks whilst POTUS ?...
