This just popped up in my Facebook feed:

I red lined.

Lie on top of lie to scam the stupid Obama haters. I guess I shouldn't be that upset, they are targeting the Fox viewer/Rush ditto head demographic to rip them off.* They are just getting their attention by spreading more of the Big Lies and demonizing Obama...what else is new?

But I want to do something to call attention to these f*ckers. I just can't stand these people. (Is it ok to hate them yet?)

Here's where the link goes:

They repeat the line in the ad as if its were gospel truth as a hidden audio/video file plays you can't turn off.

Here is the Facebook page if you all would care to report it as a scam. Not that it will do any good. The page looks legitimate and there is no evidence of the post I saw and screen-capped.

Anything else we can or should do to shine a light on these scumbags?

If I'm over the top LMK and I'll delete this post. Just fuming right now.

Re. the Retirement Cap: I was able to google info on it but not whether or not it ever was included in the final budget. It was proposed to cap IRAs at $3 million and would affect about .o6% of savers aka the super-rich.

Washington Post article for reference:
Obama’s modest proposal to cap retirement entitlements

*As for scamming that crowd, I read a piece ages ago by David Foster Wallace on RW radio in which he remarked how the ad rotation all day long was one mortgage re-fi or 'affordable' mortgage scam after the other by lenders no one had ever heard of before. He wondered aloud in the article why this was such a big thing all of a sudden. It was published (Harpers I think) long before the whole subprime scam came to light when the bubble crashed...wonder why they thought that target audience was a good place to pitch that crap? Funny how that all worked out, funny how once that all fell apart the dittoheads all united to jump on the 'deadbeats who took out loans they couldn't afford'...funny how the Tea Party was birthed in a rant about not wanting to help bail 'them' out. Funny ironic, not funny haha.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
