It was revealed yesterday that President Barack Obama, hollowed be his name, actually told a lie. No, he didn’t chop down a cherry tree, but he did agree to extend tax cuts to the top 2%. The lie is being sold as a compromise for unemployment extensions for those at risk of losing their benefits. Well 99ers, looks like we are screwed.
Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, stated that 40% of the unemployed have been so for more than six months. He further stated that it could be five years or more before we can expect to see unemployment reduced to 5 or 6%. Sounds pretty grim but I believe it is worse.
Remember the summer of recovery, the job creating stimulus, and the tax breaks for businesses hiring the unemployed? All of these were hyped in the mainstream media as absolutes right up until the undeniable truth had to be reported.
The bottom line is I don’t believe there has ever been a plan to restore our jobs, in fact, quite the opposite. The plan, it would seem, has been from the beginning a mass culling of our work force. We have had everything taken from us while the filthy rich thieves have rubbed our noses in it by calling us lazy and un-industrious.
Barry Soetoro, the two bit liar that he is, is even being turned on by his own party and supporters. Bill Maher is describing Obama as a wussy and a wimp. And others are saying that he does not have the intestinal fortitude to stand against opposition. What people are failing to realize is Barry is a true gangster right out of Chicago. And being such he knows how to follow the orders of the international corporate mafia. Barry does not care what you, I, or his so called party thinks of him, though he is attempting to sell us on yet another con.
I predict that as soon as the lame duck congress adjourns, Mr. Soetoro will start proposing more monies to be spent on projects that will be sold as job creators, but will amount to nothing more than more debt for the people and more government contracts for his corporate bosses. And don’t be surprised when the right wing propagandists start speaking more favorably of Barry in saying that he has moved more to the middle. After which he will defeat a Sarah Palin or Newt Gingrich in the next presidential election and get to serve a second term.
We had better come to realize that one of our enemies’ greatest strategies is that it makes plans as much as fifty years into the future. Then as events unfold, only tweaking of the plan is necessary. When you have a propaganda machine whose so called reporters will tell you that the sun is shining at midnight and actually believe it themselves, what can stop you short of an uprising?
As for us 99ers’ apparent exclusion in the upcoming unemployment legislation, they need to see us baring our teeth and foaming at the mouth with real anger. Every 99er out there had better realize that every day we are growing closer to a violent confrontation wherein our very lives and those of our children and grandchildren hang in the balance.
It is time for a full court press in emailing and calling the White House if we want to avert violence. You must let them know your anger; don’t be afraid at this point, we have nothing to lose. All 99ers have to realize now that if anything is going to happen to avert disaster, we are going to have to make it happen.
