Hillary Toppling the Rich
Beetle Belle is at the Table
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, April 27, 2015. Our dear friend, Beetle Belle, is at the breakfast table. Belle is very disturbed by Hillary Clinton's stated desire to topple the rich. Mental pictures of Hillary and Bill rolling down a steep hill come to mind. That image is not disturbing at all, but driving the richest among us from this nation is beyond belief. Please join us for breakfast this morning. Belle is preparing a luscious assortment of rich and flaky croissants. I will be serving Mimosas which should annoy Hillary because it has champagne, the drink of the rich, as an ingredient. We hope to see you soon.
Clinton Turns on Clinton
Thank you all for joining me this morning. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says that the nation's economy requires a "toppling" of the rich. She made this astounding remark earlier this year at a meeting with economists. She has been beating the income inequality drum for some time now. I find it very amusing that she chooses to talk about this subject, especially how it relates to women. It is a well known fact that she consistently pays her female staff members less than their male counterparts. She should be embarrassed, but she's not. Women voters should be disgusted with her, but I'm not sure. As far as the rich are concerned, I suppose it is correct to assume that she is filled with self-loathing. She is estimated to be worth over $125 million, but never mind, the rich have to go.
The One Percent
Imagine, if you will, a nation without the rich. You can forget about your I-Pods because Steve Jobs would have lost his incentive to invent it. If you work for a corporation, just pack up your things and go home. Those at the top of the ladder will pack up too and take their expertise and money elsewhere where the waters are friendlier. You could punish the rich by taxing 100 percent of their income, but they will pack their Louis Vuitton bags and head elsewhere as well. Contrary to popular opinion, the rich do pay a lion's share of taxes. If they leave, the tax base is diminished. Say good-bye to our infrastructure. Say good-bye to welfare payments. While you are at it say good-bye to food stamps. The payments will continue for a bit, but when the government goes bankrupt, the free ride ends. If you need medical care or the advice of an attorney, well that's too bad. Why go to medical or law school and put yourself in debt to the tune of $250,000 if society will label you rich down the road and punish you. I guess witch doctors will have to come back in vogue. Oh, one other thing. If you enjoy going to the movies, well forget that too.They are very expensive to make and those actors and producers just don't deserve to get rich entertaining the public. You could take up reading, but eventually best-selling authors may get tired of working to feed the poor, as well.
Time to Say Good-bye
There comes a time when good things must come to an end. There also comes a time when bad things must come to an end. That time is now. The election is a long time away. If the voting public goes to the polls and forgets about Hillary's war on the rich, her Benghazi disaster, her shredded e-mails, her receipt of millions of dollars from foreign entities while Secretary of State, then we can kiss life as we know it good-bye. Wouldn't it be better to kiss Hillary good-bye?
The whole year through
Just an old sour song
That's gone on far too long.....
