to rebut the writer that said that the federal govt is bloated, and spending is too much, and taxes are too high.
WHY DO YOU HATE THE POOR SO MUCH. THEY/WE /i DONT LIKE CHARITY. I DONT LIKE WAITING IN BREAD LINES. DO YOU?
Why is the idea of taxing the wealthy such anathema to people? the cards are stacked against the common man in america. Every time the economy starts to pick up steam the FED, and wall street slam on the brakes and turn up the greed machine. ohh- we must stop inflation. of what? food and fuel arent calculated into their figures,. the reason there is a glut in the housing market is home prices are too high, for the average person to aford. hate to say it, but its supply and demand, and the equilibrium price isnt being met. And prices for consumer goods arent going down, only corporate profits going up due to cheap foreign goods. their labor costa are drastically reduced, but the price stays the same?
We the people, through our government need to nationalize all our energy industries- oil, natural gas, coal, so WE the people get the profits, through lower taxes- Exxon and BP in America reap billions in profits, but pay no taxes? thats just dumb.
We will never see cheap renewable energy for the america consumer until either there is a revolution ( ?) or when the last drop of oil is burned, the last whiff of natural gas is torched, and the last crumbof coal is up in smoke, and not until, if they have their way.
oUR ANCESTORS PUT THESE GOVERNMENT SAFEGUARDS AND SOCIAL SAFETY NET IN PLACE, TO PREVENT ANOTHER DEPRESSION. THE REPUBLICANS GUTTED THEM, THE SPECIAL INTERESTS, THE CORPORATIONS, WALL STREET SPECULATORS, AND GREED HEADS, AND LOOK WHAT WE GOT? SCREWED!
Everybody is complaining about social security and medicare. yet wall street, where that money is invested in retirement accounts etc, thinks this money is theirs, and so blow it on worthless ponzi schemes( bernie madoffs, etc). so you want we should privatize social security,and give our money to them? Thats like getting robbed , then calling the robber, and giving them more money. insane!
Medicare, medicaid? I know people in canada who are perfectly happy with their so-called socialistic health care system. socialism merely means that the government of by and for the people control the business, and the profits accrue back to the people, sort of like protit sharing.
So lets look atht ehhealth insurance business- how many billions fo dollars of protis do they suck up? imagine if those profits wer ours, and re- channeled back into medicare, and medicaid?
Nw the military-industrial complex- 1 question- wheres OSAMA? we invade IRAQ- a blatant attempt to hi-jack an oil tanker, an act of piracy by bush, cheney, rove, rumsfeld, and "the usual suspects" its like losing your rolex watch in the house, and looking for it ourside, because the lights better. The USA was within 50 yards of killing bin laden, and his pals, and we let them slip away. I thought that was the point. kill them, wipe out al-qaeda, and go home. but no, we invade a sovreign nation, commit war crimes, frame and execute their leader, destabilize a country, and for what? ditto for Afghanistan. A major league kleptocracy. and if its to bookend Iran, with US power, to protect our dysfunctional ally israel, lets say so. And Pakistan is not exactly a rose gardes, either. We had our chance with IRAN in 1979, but reagan balked. We had our full cold war capacity, the soviet union collapsed. we should have taken out the iranian republican guard back then- a quick raid, bomb everything, and leave the debris. destabilizing them, for their a,dn our peoples benefit, well?
FDR ON WAR
but no. Our military is depleted. our materiel is worn out, and broken down. Our troops- exhausted. We have no serious challenges we can sustain. maybe its time to let china carry the colors of "world policeman. the USA needs to sideline ourselves, for some rest, and rebuilding. We arent in any position anymore.
so the teaparty types all talk about the budget, but have no ideas of their own that will help the common people find or create their own jobs. talk talk talk.
I just gave you a realistic assessment of our current situation, and a way to dig ourselves out of this hole. its ugly, but it will work. not tomorrow, but when you dig ia hole for years, it takes years to dig out. Dacrifice? let the wealthy, who have benefitet, refill the till. they'll get it back anyway. trickle up economics.
