“HAPPIEST THANKSGIVING EVER FOR THE RICH WHILE THE REST OF US CAN %#*@ OFF!”
AND NOW as a preview of the coming McConnell massacre of everything middle class. STAND BY FOR truck loads of ridiculous over blown poppycock meant to hide the fact that the GOP doesn’t know and has never known how to handle an economy without giving away the farm to public enemy # one ..which is the one percent with the Koch Fiends at the wheel!
***While we all attempt to feel great about the abundance of our wonderful lives…while we celebrate with our loving generous families here are a few home truths.
***THE 1% OF US IS ENJOYING THE MOST AMAZING SUCCESS IN THE HISTORY OF THIS COUNTRY. PROFITS ARE SKY HIGH, EARNINGS ARE THROUGH THE ROOF.
***THERE’S OVER TWO TRILLION DOLLARS IN CORPORATE ACCOUNTS EARNING THE INTEREST THAT TWO TRILLION DOLLARS BRINGS WHEN THE 1% IS PAYING SO LITTLE BACK INTO THE ECONOMY.
***These “one per centers” are filling Neiman Marcus and Tiffany’s like never before…they are buying massive amounts of MERCEDES. BMW’s, JAGS, BENTLEYS, ROLLS ROYCES AND CADILLACS AND PAYING $72,000 FOR CUSTOMISED CAMEROS FROM GM…and keeping the escort business as popular as ever.
The rest of us are sitting at home watching the reports of this economic success from our televisions while wondering if we’ll be able to pay the cable bill next month.
Here’s a typical story on this Thanksgiving Day.
A highly paid successful computer executive invests his money in the stock market a few years ago. His accountants assures him this is the right thing to do as he is on his way to retirement. Wall Street “invests” his money and sends him monthly reports he notices that the fees each month for their work are high. He also notices that rather than being “steadily showing growth” his investment dollars are shrinking at an alarming rate. His brokers tell him to “hang in there” his business management says the same thing. He however pulls all his money out of the market and buys REAL ESTATE property in a “safe” area. In 5 years that boondoggle works against him as well. He did all the right things and the 1% still did him in. He got out of his property just in time but the profit from the sale was offset by a 2nd mortgage he’d taken out from Countrywide!
Yes…Countrywide…the supposedly best in the business…but who’s chief executive is a crook.
As many others…THE COMPUTER GUY lost everything.
HE DOES NOT WANT TO BE A BURDEN TO THE COUNTRY, HE WANTS TO HELP MAKE IT STRONG AGAIN. But those jobs are not there anymore. They’re in INDIA and CHINA and according to Sarah Palin “our ally NORTH KOREA.”
And now the REPUBLICAN majority in BOTH HOUSES will suggest that the benefits for these struggling people should be cut even further.
THE GOP PLANS ON DOING THIS WHILE ADVOCATING THAT “TAXING THE ONE PERCENT IS A BAD THING…
The only people left who think this are the right wing politico’s who will be opening their lousy lying corrupt mouths and saying it as if its a fact..Its as factual as Inhofe’s GLOBAL WARMING statistics.
So the millions of AVERAGE people… like the computer guy… who are sitting at home watching their cable news they may not be able to afford any more must be wondering what it’s going to be like living in a tent !
When it gets bad enough “There will be blood” as NYT’s columnist Paul Krugman so succinctly puts it.
Even the DUPED scared white sheep who just voted to destroy themselves and the average Americans who didn’t take the time to vote and currently don’t quite get that Corpo-Fascists will be totally running things …will become angry villagers eventually…this will happen when the rich underestimate their victims and overestimate their power.
HAPPENED IN FRANCE..HAPPENED IN RUSSIA… The Millions suddenly woke up and threw out the Thousands …and in many cases just went on and offed them,
It probably won’t happen in our lifetimes unless we’re much smarter than I think we are ..so we’d better start teaching our grand kids the art of mass civil disobedience!
