When Ronald Regan became president, he introduced “Trickle Down Economics” and said we all need to tighten our belts a little. Don’t you love it when a rich man tells you need to live with less? These thieves have stolen us blind and accomplished the greatest transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich in the history of this planet. And now that they have stolen their pile of gold, they want to stop the theft of gold.
It’s kind of like two people playing black jack. When you start the game you agree that every time the deck runs out the deal will transfer. <!–more–> You further say that there will be a minimal bet of ten dollars per hand. However, after the first deck is dealt and one person has accumulated more money, as the dealer has the odds in his or her favor, it is the next person’s turn to deal. Now the person who has won more money says, “These rules aren’t fair, I want to change them. From now on the minimum bet is one dollar until it is my turn to deal again.”
Every day I hear the moneyed people putting forth this very scenario. I guess it’s about time to reach across and grab them by the hair of the head, slam their face into the table, and take all the money. All the rich people out there need to realize that the poor outnumber the rich and they have what they have only through our tolerance.
The entrepreneur who made his or her money through honest endeavor is few and far between and would be the only exception. Most who have large sums of money have gotten it through lying, cheating, and swindling, and deserve nothing more than to have it taken away and be made to live poor for the rest of their days.
From 1980 through 2005 more than 4/5 of the total increase in American incomes went to the richest 1%. So those of you out there making $500,000 per year and defending the rich because you believe yourselves to be among them had better wake up. Because the true rich want to take everything you have as sure as they have already taken what was the 99ers.
CEOs of the largest American companies earned an average of 42 times as much as the average worker in 1980. In 2001 the CEOs’ earnings were 531 times as much as the average worker. Do you think they are going to stop there? This country has become nothing more than another banana republic.
The CEOs are paid off for eliminating American jobs and sending them overseas. And who pays their big bonuses?…the American taxpayers. So all of you people out there making five to seven hundred thousand dollars per year keep making the filthy rich the center of your hero worship. Your job is next.
This is the worst recession in 60 years and all our so called representatives can talk about is tax cuts for the top 2%. The top 1% in this country owns more national wealth than the bottom 90%. And all our so called representatives can talk about is tax cuts for the top 2%.
Bankers in this country go to foreign countries and make micro loans to their citizens to start small businesses. I guess that’s because the people in third world countries don’t have to worry about their credit reports. Ask yourself, how many small businesses could have been started in this country had the traitors Henry Paulson and Timothy Geithner taken the billions they gave to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, that just disappeared, and made micro loans to those who had become unemployed? But the international corporate mafia would never allow it, as it is their stated goal to destroy this country and kill 90% of us. I guess if you exclude the top 2% that leaves 8% that was once the middle class. So do you think you’ll make the grade? If not, you better decide who your enemy is, the top 2% or the poor.
I get thoroughly disgusted with the upper middle class and lower rich when I see them turning their backs on their brethren and sisteren and licking the feet of the filthy rich as they think they are among them. I have news for all of them. The filthy rich have nothing but contempt for anyone with less money, hell, they eat their own. Before this whole thing is over they will laugh at all of us as our children’s bloated, starving bodies lie in the streets with flies buzzing around their eyes.
When those who have sided with the filthy rich get their comeuppance and turn to us for compassion, let them know they can expect nothing more than our contempt. And every one of you out there counting your money and thinking you are better than other people, remember my words, only the top 2% are slated to be rich forever, and your job is next.
