Has the Economy Improved or Are You Still Standing In Soup Lines?
Meet the Press; February 5, 2012
Here is the Truth!!
As I watched Meet the Press this morning it occurred to me that I am not happy with either Party’s message. First and foremost all politicians and entertainers are in the 1 % and are so extraordinarily wealthy that have not paid taxes for the last decade so their creditability is gone. They are the people who have been skipping out on taxes. They also have been unwilling and unable to address the simple fact that the exceptionally wealthy (politicians and the entertainment industry) have relieved their tax burdens with a progressive flat tax on the poor. The wealthy clearly do not wish to change this policy and accept their tax responsibility but are only willing to shove it one to the poor. I have news for the politicians and wealthy in this country. They are the only ones with money left. They are going to have to pay!!
Second, there is this idea that by not taxing the wealthy jobs will be created. If that were true we wouldn’t be in the financial position today that we are. Sadly, the wealthy pocket their cash and don’t hire and expand their businesses but ship them off shore.
Third, politicians and the press are completely happy with the system that exists. They don’t plan on changing anything. And they are the only people who have the power to change the country. The wealthy can hire and can spend. They are choosing not to.
It was kind of hard to hear Bloomberg stick up for the Wall Street banks which he has so richly gained from. He has a non-disclosed conflict of interest.
The only fix this country needs is the removal of the regressive flat taxes on the ordinary citizens and progressive tax the wealthy. There is no other way. There would be immediate relief if the government would lift all of the flat taxes. And the wealthy should only receive a reduction in taxes if they expand business in the USA, hire and maintain employees. It is time the rich finally put some skin in the game. The rest of the country can’t carry the wealthy any longer. Nor can we actually pay for the regressive flat taxes on things like groceries and gasoline. And if anyone wants my respect they damned well better earn it. Because I don’t believe in our leadership any longer and entertainers are exceptionally well paid opportunists.
It is just unfathomable what the wealthy have done to this country. Bloomberg mentioned a shared ordeal. What shared ordeal? Give me a billion dollars and then I will have a shared ordeal with Bloomberg. Until then he needs to pay his taxes and not protect the wealthy from paying theirs.
If FDR were around he would federalize all the corporations and employ people not to mention taking all the cash off the books. It happened to my grandparents and it is a realistic and justifiable act when we are still at war and we are. That would be a tremendous source of revenue.
As a human being I am not represented. I am not represented at all by my government and if I am not then you are not. Our vote doesn’t count. Congress appoints the president and therefore if you don’t like the outcome of the presidential election take it out on congress. Our votes do not count in the electoral process game. And the best hope is to change congress in order to change the president. But it is the same old, same old no matter who is elected. They may say hateful things to each other during the election year but there is no contrast between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. They are both wealthy elitist individuals looking out for their wealthy friends and do not give a hoot for the poor in this country at all. Neither one of them have a plan to rebuild America but to cut taxes for the wealthy. And you can’t cut taxes to prosperity. While deficit reduction is an interesting topic it is not necessarily relevant in a time when our country is on the verge of collapse and unemployment if so astronomically high. The truth is America has failed meet its debt obligations before and our allies which we do business with understand this. Amazingly, some of the countries cited as we owe money to are also country’s we have set up and own.
The truth is there is no choice. The wealthy people continuing to screw all the poor and there are no middle income families any longer. To bad the entertainer, David Gregory, couldn’t speak the truth on his show. I missed Tim Russert today! The greatest tragedy for this country will be the same old same old from our entertainers and politicians.
