Huge deficits are coming back and what does Bush want to do with your money?Bush, and his old cronies that date back to the Reagan era, are so happy we have a new cold war to fight and a crippled economy to use as excuses to give huge tax cuts to the wealthy and businesses. No rich people are losing their health care because of these attacks. No rich people will have their cars repossesed or will have to stop paying their children's tuition as a result of being laid off. But these rich people should get huge tax breaks. Will they spend the money we give them? Well, yes. On treasury bills, so they can finance their tax cut at a decent interest rate. Now that's standing united for you.
"The first duty of the government is the safety of the American people. And tax cuts will not pay for air marshals or baggage screeners." -- Rep. Martin Frost, D. TexasOnce again, the people who benefit the most from capitalism will have to pay the least for it. The people who are hurt the least by these tragic times will actually MAKE money on this tragedy. The people who are hurt the worst will get, if they're lucky, a big FU from the Republicans. Real patriotic, guys. Hundreds of thousands of people getting laid off and you delay the vote on an aid package to these workers because you know what a bunch of greedy fat cats you look like when you say no to them. I get angry over a lot, but nothing makes me more angry than when the dittoheads do something like this. Capital Gains tax cuts? WHAT ARE THESE PUKES TALKING ABOUT? WE'VE BEEN DOWN THIS ROAD. WE KNOW WHERE IT LEADS. NOTHING TRICKLES DOWN EXCEPT THE CRAP DOWN THEIR LEGS. Money, in case people haven't been paying attention, tends to concentrate in the hands of the wealthy. That's why we all say "the rich get richer." Would we say that if it "trickled down"?
It took a president who invested in education and infrasturcture to create record growth and surplus. Putting big tax cut dollars into the pockets of the rich does not stimulate the economy. We've done this experiment. Why are we here again? Because single minded, single issue voters like gun nuts and religious fanatics said Al Gore was the devil and voted for Dumbya. Most of these people are middle class folks who were inflamed by the religious right to believe that Al Gore was going to force them all to be homosexuals and take away their guns. Lies. All lies so these same rich fat cats like Jerry Falwell could get their teeth, or their dentures, into some more federal tax dollars, in the form of tax cuts, big breaks to the dirty energy industries they invest in and get paid off by, or cash to religions for "social" programs.
It's all about money. It's always about money in this country. The greedy Bush family, which actually did business with Nazi's and has now been caught doing business with the Bin Laden family (which, even though it claims to have disowned it's son, is being investigated by the FBI anyway) through the Carlyle group.
The Nazi agenda did not die along with Adolf Hitler. It moved to America (or a part of it did) and joined the far right of the Republican Party. Prescott Bush and George Herbert Walker, W's grandfathers, both helped the Nazis by laundering money before and during the war, and by giving the Nazi's who came to the US after the war positions within the Republican party. And, furthermore, the U. S. government investigated both Bert Walker and Prescott Bush, and under the Trading with the Enemy Act seized all shares of Union Banking, including shares held by Prescott Bush. The government held that "huge sections of Prescott Bush's empire had been operated on behalf of Nazi Germany and had greatly assisted the German war effort." For detailed info on this, see this story about Bush and the Nazis.
And who inherits that empire? The "president" of the United States, whose oil greedy family has made friends with anyone who'll help them drill. Nazi's, terrorists, racists, whoever. With their money and connections (like cousins in newsrooms) they can pretty well cover up the fact that they are Nazi scum. And if anyone gets too close to the truth, they'll just have Falwell spew some crap about Clinton. Throw crap on the left so they can't smell the crap on the right.
All I can say is, please call all your friends in Florida and tell them to make sure they get to vote for someone besides Dumbya next time. And, for Christmas presents, buy your Republican friends some books about Bush, if they can read, that is.
