It has been 307 days since the 112th Congress convened. Not only has not one job been created, but we have seen net job losses that can only be considered staggering. Many want to portray the 112th Congress as dysfunctional, but I think this should be qualified. When working on the issues of the 99%, the Congress is definitely completely dysfunctional. However when taking up the legislation of the 1%, the one party system works like a well oiled machine.
Legislation for unemployment extensions cannot even make it out of the Ways and Means Committee. However legislation for a new trade agreement to send more of our jobs and industry to Panama, Columbia, and South Korea is shot through Congress and made law within the space of two days.
A Tier 5 Unemployment Extension, which could literally mean life or death this winter for many US citizens, would cost $60 billion – an astronomical amount, completely out of the question, it would bankrupt the country, we dare not even consider it.
However Obama just went to France where he agreed that 68 billion US taxpayer dollars would go to the IMF to be used to help bailout the foreign bankers in Europe as it is a necessity as these banks cannot be allowed to fail. And I’m sure this legislation will find no opposition in the Congress.
You see it works like this. If you take tax money and give it to an unemployed American, it is socialism and an unjust transfer of wealth. However if you take that very same money and give it to a foreigner who owns a bank in Greece or Italy, that is free market capitalism and in no way represents a transfer of wealth.
The neo-cons say they have signed a pledge to not raise taxes and that they intend to stand by that pledge. Representative Michael Grimm (R-NY), speaking on FOX News Live Saturday was confronted with the question, “If a flat tax is initiated that would cause a tax burden to be put on those who are not being taxed because they make too liitle, would you support it?” Grimm said that 51%, meaning those living under the poverty level, pay no tax and that as those people should have been paying taxes all along, he definitely supports slapping a tax on the working poor. He said he would vote yes on a flat tax.
This dirty filthy little bought-and-paid-for scum bag is advocating for putting taxes on those living under the poverty level to lower taxes for the top 1% and this is the reality of the situation. And of course this shift in tax burden in no way represents a redistribution of wealth from the poor to the rich in any way. This is a representation of unmitigated gall. This is a Wall Street elitist, spitting champaign off of a balcony on Wall Street into the faces of the 99%.
I tell you people out there, shut down the ports and let’s force this issue.
The twelve person communist committee is getting ready to enact austerity measures on the 99% in order to give the big banks another $4 trillion, which will come from Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and food stamps, while at the same time they will pass the eleven bills to expand the foreign worker visa programs, intensifying the attack on our middle class high tech jobs. These neo-cons and social communists represent an insurgency. And mark my words; there is nothing they are not capable of in furthering their goals.
Winter is upon us, millions are hungry and cold in our streets and the one party system is working diligently to complete our destruction, even preparing to invade Iran if that is what is necessary to silence the voices of dissent coming from the masses.
We must elect Ron Paul as our next president. But unless we start fighting to stop this blatant assault on the American people of the American race, it is going to be too late by 2012 for many of us.
Occupy the ports. Occupy the ports. Occupy the ports. Stop the flow of our natural resources. If it is to be a fight, then let’s do it now, as the sooner we begin, the sooner our suffering will stop, and the sooner the misery makers will be made to answer for the crimes they have committed against we the people, our Constitution, and our Republic.
God bless the Republic, death to the international corporate mafia, we shall prevail.
