    So to save the economy we need to increase taxes for all the creative producers and innovators that create jobs and pay for the half of the country that doesn't pay taxes? Does anyone really listen to Obama anymore?

    The government has always tried to convince us serfs that it is neccessary to pay more into the pot in order to keep the machine running smoothly. The fact is that their spending is outrageous and higher taxes will hurt everyone from business owners to janitors. Back before WWII, we didn't even have an income tax and things were going pretty good. But, if you give a fat-cat politico mouse a cookie, he's going to want a glass of milk and your first-born child. Why do they conveniently ignore that the war on poverty was launched nearly 50 years ago? Today, over 47 million Americans are on food stamps. The welfare state in insatiable and destined to bring down this country. Why do we have 17 aircraft carriers? Why is every government entity unable to manage its own budget? Why do savvy investigators constantly reveal corruption, double-dipping, and waste? Sooner or later, you run out of other people's money.

    No, no, no.  We need to fire Washington and finally elect some experts instead.  We need a better stock of collective thinkers than just over-grown toddlers pretending to be lawyers.  We need to oust the current government and hire some real people with real jobs to run things.  I think we should
    stop screwing with these retards and elect some accountants, let's say, to do the job.
