I thought I wasn't going to do this

November 1, 2008


But, hey, it’s the launch of NaBloPoMo 2008. Might as well start it off with a death threat, right?

I made a promise to myself that I was going to cease and desist on the politics. This election jumped the shark months ago. But I find myself at an interesting crossroads – and for the first time in my life, the election is affecting how I think about a decision I have to make.

I am going back to work. I recognize this is very different than previous posts. But I am. I am angling to remain a home office worker, and may, actually, get to do that, but I am on an active and aggressive job hunt as we speak.

But here’s the thing. Because of Mr. Obama’s tax hikes that will be coming (be ye not so stupid, democrats, they ARE coming – for more than you would like to believe. History is on MY side.) should he be elected, I am actually considering NOT taking a certain job because it would be detrimental economically for my family. A great, well-paying, NON-PROFIT, economy-boosting job.

So, Mr. Obama, how do you feel about THAT?

How do you feel about an educated, motivated, talented woman deciding not to take a job because she would make too much money and be penalized for that?

How do you like the idea of many people making that decision – causing employment rates to drop and the economy to slow down because those of us making that decision won’t have as much disposable income to spend – especially in those small businesses that depend on us?

How does it feel to know that you and your party have successfully de-motivated a citizen?

That you have already begun to unwind the entrepreneurial spirit this country’s tapestry is woven from?

And just think about this for a moment as well. When I lack extra money? My charitable contributions drop as well. So all those folks that get a direct benefit from MY hard earned money? Suffer as well. And please don’t tell me how my tax dollars will go to fund additional social programs – the last thing the helpless need is another poorly run government program squandering their resources. And I know from where I speak – I’ve seen it firsthand.

Folks, I know many of you have had a cup of the Kool Aid. Please, I beg you, back away from the punch bowl.

    Glad to see you back here and writing, even if I don’t agree with everything you say — I mean this!
    And what’s this about death threats? Hopefully you don’t mean this literally. We’ve had rashes of signs being stolen (both McCain and Obama), which is truly sad (and illegal). No other threats so far, thank goodness.
    Best of luck in your job search, no matter where you end up! How are your creative ventures going? And the kids? 🙂

    When I contributed to the Obama campaign the first time, there was a little check box that said
    “If you’d like your contribution matched by us taxing someone after the election, put that person’s name here.”
    And I thought of you!
