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.
