Do you ever get that feeling of déjà vu again and again? Obama is saying that he will veto the so called fiscal cliff deal if it does not contain tax hikes on the rich. How many ways can you put out the same old propaganda and expect we the people not to see it for what it is? What we are talking about here is the Bush era tax cuts that have been extended and the mandatory spending cuts that were a part of the deal to extend them.
Here where I live it is the law that every household must have a 12 gauge shotgun or better and every able bodied man must carry a sidearm. Of course this is one of those unenforced laws, but it does serve a purpose. When we asked our fathers why they put this law into place, they said, “It is easier to make a law than to change one.”
When George Bush started with all the tax cuts for his billionaire buddies, he fully intended them to be permanent. But the only way he could get them through Congress was to attach them to tax cuts for the 99%. If the elite had their way they would drop all the tax cuts for everyone but themselves, but they know this is an impossibility.
Make no mistake and let it be made perfectly clear. The rich have not been enduring a depression. They have been enjoying a boom. They have been making more money than ever as the rest of us have been making less than ever. But of course this isn’t a transfer of wealth and of course the rich care about the rest of us. I know this because I heard one of them telling me so on Fox’s Cavuto. This rich fellow said that if Obama vetoes this bill it is going to hurt us all. Really? Is that true?
Remember when these rich people got handed millions in tax cuts, they already had billions. I don’t think it is hurting someone to take a million from their billion. At least not to the extent that it hurts someone with ten thousand to take a thousand. If these rich really cared about the rest of us, wouldn’t they go ahead and give up a million of their billions to keep more of the rest of us from going on food stamps?
Personally I know income tax is illegal as declared by the Supreme Court. But corporate taxes on gross profits are not. This is how the corporate elite are supposed to pay us for our natural resources.
With the mandatory spending cuts the industrial war complex comes into play and Lord forbid you take one dollar out of military spending because we all know that dollar will come out of the soldiers’ paychecks, because it sure as hell is not going to come out of the military contractors’ pockets.
The gall of these pigs in trying to act like they are in the same boat we are. But then I guess this is all a moot point as our economy is getting ready to crash with the death of the fiat dollar, leading to a world depression and world famine, after which us poor people are going to be finding out what rich people taste like, with barbeque sauce of course.
God bless the Republic, death to the international corporate mafia, we shall prevail.

INSTEAD OF QE-1, QE-2 OR A QE-3, WE MUST ACT QUICKLY TO ENACT THE FOLLOWING SO THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF AMERICANS CAN SAVE AMERICA.
MILLIONS OF JOBS ARE AVAILABLE NOW; MILLIONS OF MORTGAGES SAVED NOW; MILLIONS OF STUDENT LOAN DEBTS CLEARED NOW; BILLIONS OF SOCIAL SECURITY COSTS SAVED NOW; AND THOUSANDS OF VETERANS THANKED NOW-INCLUDING HOMELESS VETERANS!
The Social Security system, Medicare, Medicaid and many state social programs are at dire risk of imploding; employment has stagnated and is growing more critical; military personnel may or may not be coming home due to the lack of employment and supports for veterans; and current high school and college students face a bleak future of unemployment and debt.
To relieve the pressure, prevent the collapse of a once vibrant and beneficial system of assistance to those in need; and to encourage support for those who have worked hard to support others, the time has come to initiate the following ECONOMIC FREEDOM AND STABILITY ACT.
AN INVEST IN AMERICA (I AM AMERICA) – SOLUTION
Please find below a simplistic compilation of suggestions for fixing America’s economy. Instead of giving any further bail-outs of billions of dollars to the banks, financial houses, or corporations that will squander the money on obscene and unearned bonuses without giving any thought to using those funds for the betterment of the poor and middle class, the following plans are presented instead:
THE ECONOMIC FREEDOM AND STABILITY ACT (EFSA)
There are 50-60 million baby boomers who remain employed in the work force. We suggest that the United States government offer each of those employed baby boomers $1 million dollars each, tax free, as severance to retire from their employment within 30 days of receipt of the $1 million dollar severance with the following stipulations:
I. The new EFSA retiree MUST cease their current employment and not hire on as an employee anywhere in America ever again. 50-60 million job openings will occur – Younger potential employees and college graduates are then hired. Unemployment costs saved and employment opportunities will immediately be resolved. (The new retirees CAN start a business, and they can eventually hire new employees too).
II. The new EFSA retiree MUST buy a new AMERICAN made energy saving, green rated automobile. With 50-60 million new American made vehicles ordered the auto industry will once again become stable and solvent with jobs and needed resources enjoying economic growth- Employment, Environment and Auto Industry fixed.
III. The new EFSA retiree MUST either buy an American house/condo or pay off their existing mortgage thereby increasing jobs, and stabilizing the housing and mortgage issues – Employment and Housing Crisis fixed.
IV. The new EFSA retiree MUST purchase a life insurance policy to insure that those who depend on them for support will be taken care of in the event of untimely death or medical setback. –Dependents and Caregiver Coverage Fixed.
V. The new EFSA retiree MUST purchase and carry yearly medical, dental and vision coverage for themselves and their dependents, decreasing healthcare costs and burdens for the nation, and ensure continued wellbeing and quality of life. – Financial, Employment and Healthcare Coverage Fixed.
VI. The new EFSA retiree MUST forfeit all future Social Security, Medicare, and/or Medicaid benefits decreasing trillions of dollars of social welfare costs; eliminating the financial burdens on the coming generations, and encouraging self-determination. Budget Deficit fixed.
*** Certainly even some of the noted suggestions warrant further consideration, or the opportunity to be further elaborated on and implemented. Such an economic and stability program could be in effect by the end of 2011 without much financial investment considering the billions of taxpayer dollars being wasted each minute as you read this proposal.
AMERICAN VETERAN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF SACRAFICE ACT (AOS)
1. 20-40 ACRES OF AMERICAN LAND AND AN AMERICAN MADE TRUCK (NEW OR USED) WILL BE PROVIDED ALL HONORABLY DISCHARGED VETERANS.
2. VETERANS MUST GROW SOMETHING FOR THE GOOD OF THE COMMUNITY ON THE LAND (FOOD, LIVESTOCK,
WILD GAME, PRODUCTS, ETC)
3. VETERANS CANNOT SELL, CONVEY, USE AS COLLATERAL OR TRANSFER OWNERSHIP OF THE LAND
FOR 20 YEARS. THE TRUCK CAN BE SOLD OR OWNERSHIP CONVEYED AFTER FIVE YEARS.
4. THE LAND CAN BE INHERITED BY DEPENDENTS OF THE VETERAN BUT CANNOT BE SOLD, CONVEYED, USED AS COLLATERAL OR TRANSFERRED OUT OF THE FAMILY FOR 20 YEARS.
5. VETERANS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR STEWARDSHIP OF THE LAND TO INCLUDE ALL WASTE CREATED ON THE LAND.
6. THE LAND CANNOT BE A BLIGHT ON THE COMMUNITY, OR THE LAND CAN BE RECOVERED BY THE GOVERNMENT AS FORFEITURE FOR FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE LAND AS IT WAS INTENDED TO BE USED.
With the implementation of the SEVERANCE AND VETERAN ACTS, America’s students will see a brighter future to invest their efforts and talents while creating plentiful jobs without fear of increasing the unemployment ranks.
STUDENTS TO PROFESSIONALS ACT – (STP)
THIS PROGRAM WAS CREATED TO CONNECT HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE STUDENTS TO EMPLOYERS WHO WILL ACT AS BENEFACTORS, MENTORS AND INVESTORS IN THE STUDENTS’ FUTURE PROFESSIONAL AMBITIONS BY FUNDING A STUDENT’S EDUCATION OR SKILL TRAINING ON A 1:1 RATIO:
ONE YEAR OF EMPLOYMENT WITH THE SPONSORING COMPANY FOR ONE YEAR OF COLLEGE OR SKILL TRAINING.
1. A SPONSORED STUDENT WILL WORK SIX TO EIGHT WEEKS OF EACH SUMMER ATER THEIR SOPHOMORE YEAR IN HIGH SCHOOL UNTIL THEY GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL, AS AN INTERN WITH THE EMPLOYER-SPONSOR WHO HAS CONTRACTED TO INVEST IN THE STUDENT’S COLLEGE OR TRADE SCHOOL TUITION.
2. ONCE THE STUDENT GRADUATES FROM THE COLLEGE OR TRADE SCHOOL OF THEIR CHOICE, THE STUDENT WILL WORK ONE YEAR FOR THE EMPLOYER-SPONSOR FOR EVERY YEAR THE EMPLOYER-SPONSOR FUNDED THAT STUDENT’S EDUCATION OR TRAINING.
3. SAID EMPLOYMENT WILL BE AT A COMPETITIVE RATE OF PAY, WAGE, SALARY AS DETERMINED BY THE MARKET AT THE TIME OF COMPLETION OF COLLEGE OR TRAINING.
4. CONTRACT AND NEGOTIATIONS REGARDING COLLEGE/TRAINING TUITION/EXPENSES AND EMPLOYER REIMBURSEMENT WILL BE DEFINED BY ARBITRATION AND STANDARDS DETERMINED BY THE DEPT OF LABOR.
*** THIS PROGRAM WILL CREATE AN AMERICAN TRANSITIONAL VIABLE WORK FORCE WITH PRACTICAL WORK EXPERIENCE FOR PROSPECTIVE EMPLOYERS-SPONSORS TO ACCESS AND MENTOR.
*** THIS PROGRAM WILL CREATE JOBS AND DIRECTLY CONNECT THE WORKFORCE WITH THE INDUSTRIES IN NEED OF HUMAN CAPITAL.
*** THIS PROGRAM WILL ENABLE STUDENTS TO TRANSITION TO EMPLOYMENT WITH A DIRECT INVESTMENT IN THEIR FUTURE, WHILE BOLSTERING THE ECONOMIC GROWTH OF THE NATION.
With the implementation of these simple SEVERANCE, VETERAN & STUDENT ACTS, America’s economy, spirit, and future will exponentially expand beyond the nation’s current burdens and constraints, with prosperity and renewed –
AN INVEST IN AMERICANS (I AM AMERICA) – SOLUTION.
This is the same response you gave to previous article, which addresses symptoms, but does absolutely nothing to solve the actual problem.
This is exactlly like giving your car a tune-up with a wax & wash job because its getting poor fuel economy, which now causes your engine to run a little better, and gives you a “feel-good” response because your car looks better also,… but until you acknowlege and fix the nearly flat tire you have have been driving around on,… no matter what you do,.. you will continue to get poor fuel economy.
In other words,.. yeah,.. you took some corrective actions,.. but in the end, they were wholly meaningless as none of them addressed the actual problem.
Same thing with your “solutions”,.. and the solutions offered by many others to “fix” the economy, however,.. what many refuse, or are incapable of deducing is that the economy is NOT the problem,… it is merely the symptom, and Symptom-Fixing gives one the ability to state they have applied “corrective actions” and get a “feel-good” response from their efforts,.. but in the end,.. they do nothing to fix the underlying problem whatsoever.
You want to fix the problem?
The easiest, quickest and most direct route, although one of the most difficult to implement is,… (drum roll please,…………)
Free The Press! (Ta-daaaaaa,… horns blaring)
If we passed laws within the current criminal framework of our treasonous gov’t to “Free The Press” from the ownership and influence of the Corrupted Corporations, Perfidious Politicians and interference by forces outside the gov’t, the Press (the 4th Estate of gov’t) would start to expose all that they are busy hidding at the current moment.
Just let the American people start to find out what is really going on,.. and it won’t take but a week, if not mere hours for Americans to digest, puke, get angry and then, in a near violent state, demand changes of a nature that actually do address the real problem source (The Shadow Gov’t, Corrupt Politicians and Criminal Corporations, collectively called the NWO).
Without a free and independent press actually reporting on the crimes of this gov’t,.. there is little-to-no chance for a mass awaking (… until its to late), or anyway to hold all the criminals inside, and outside the gov’t responsible for the wanton destruction of this country.
Step One: Free The Press, and REQUIRE independence of the news organizations from ANY corporate, government or corruptive influences,.. and this country will be in a state of unified revolt by morning!
Hence why the Rockefellars and other NWO agencies/individuals have placed so much effort into turning our “Free-Press” into the American version of the Joseph Gobbels Ministry Of Propaganda that it now is.
To fix our current problems requires abolishing the Treasonous US Fed Gov’t and ALL criminal agencies to the last, and the best way to do that is to expose what it is they are actually doing, and the best way to do that is,.. Free The Free-Press, and allow it to start to function as it was intended to do once again,.. all other needs and considerations WILL fall into place on their own once this is achieved.
JD – US Marines – To fix a problem,… you need to understand its root source. The root source is the hidden corruption,… but in reality it is our press NOT exposing them that has allowed it to flourish and grow.
I simply dont have the ambition to multiply 1 million times 50 million to see what the total is. Seems like a pretty big number…Nonetheless, I like the ideas written.
And, fromthetrenches is now one of my top ten websites, I wish more people would post comments here…Spread the word people, I am. I have watched this website closely for some time now, good stuff and legit IMO.
It’s the best one I’ve found. Nothing but the truth here.
“….after which us poor people are going to be finding out what rich people taste like, with barbeque sauce of course.”
I don’t know about that one, Henry.
I heard they just turn into a puddle of slime when killed.
In which case it would be “Soup’s on!” LOL
I like the idea, but unfortunately within the current system this would happen.
Unions, Corporations, Lobbying Groups, etc. start to buy off the politicians that will be writing the bill that will define each of these actions with reams of directives. These politicians will not write the miriad of regulations. That will be handed off to government employes. Think of the rules and regulations and fines and fees. Regulations set up from the start to benefit and exempt the unions, corporations or lobbyist groups from these same regulations. Remember all the corporations that received waivers from Obama Care?
And because they have been paid off who will really benefit? Not “The People”, but the new IRS agents that have to monitor you to confirm that you:
PLAN A: I. That you follow all the rules and regulations and “…cease their current employment and not hire on as an employee anywhere in America…” For instance, can you travel to Mexico and work; Canada?
Also, that you follow the rules andregulations when you, “…start a business, and they can eventually hire new employees too).” For instance, can you start a consulting firm and start working for your old employer or an entirely new employer as a IRS Form 1099 consultant? My guess is no, at least not without jumping through all the hoops they will have to set up, but my point is that they will have to write rules and regulations to specify how you can and cannot start a business. So you jump throught the hoops and there you are a private firm supplying a serice to another company that is effectively taking a job away from a younger American. A job that was just outsourced to another “company.” Another problem is that 1099 consultants, or private providers of services do not get benefits, are not subject to Labor Laws and can be terminated at will. Do you think that the Corporations will think this a bad thing?
Once again, I like the idea, but I know it would be corrupted by our system into new rules and regulations without representation!
No Regulation Without Representation!!!!!!
