Somebody has to notice this besides me…somebody. There is a battlefield attack game that the Democrats use over and over again in politics….it goes like this: Whatever crime they are committing..they accuse the other fellow of doing it, and claim outrage, while they continue to commit the very crime they are accusing the other fellow of doing.
Nobody calls it for lack of a better name— The Scrooge Bomb
In simple terms…Picture a bully beating up a boy in a schoolyard. The boy starts to fight back…the teacher comes out, and the bully says, “That boy just HIT me!” So the teacher punishes the boy who was attacked and did nothing. The other boy, the bully, goes home with a smile, and beats up the kid the next day.
Today, Harry Reid came out to the media ..and said this:
“Now is the time to show leadership, not kick the can down the road.”
Now, most people just hear that soundbite, and think Harry is telling the truth, because he says it boldy and loudly. But, if you are following the daily news, it’s Obama and the Democrats who are “kicking the can down the road” by not fixing our problems. Harry even came out and accused the Republicans of keeping the country from recovering. At the same time, the Democrats attack the rich, knowing FULL well that the 1 percent at the top, will never pay taxes, BUT they want YOU to think those are the people they are going to tax.
It’s a lie. A bold lie. The people who will get taxed and suffer the most ARE the poor. The very rich have already protected their billions. That’s why they all say, “Hey, I should pay more taxes!” They can say that because they know they have all their money in offshore accounts.
I was watching this scene last night from Dickens’ Christmas Carol, and when I heard this last line, about how the excess population should just die, I thought to myself: That sounds JUST like Obamacare, because we all know Obamacare is designed to shorten the lives of the baby boomers, for one simple reason: They need more working people to collect more taxes, and 90 million people sucking money out of the health care system is too much: It’s pure math to them. But notice how the video accuse the Republicans.
Obama is trying to lead us to the European Model, and this was reported today:
France should allow doctors to “accelerate the coming of death” for terminally ill patients, a report to President Francois Hollande recommended Tuesday. Belgium is considering a significant change to its decade-old euthanasia law that would allow minors and Alzheimer’s sufferers to seek permission to die.
When Obama says grandma should just take a pill and die quietly, he meant it.
As I watched this version of Dickens’, I could not help but compare what the elites in the world, who are all in the very income bracket that they are claiming they want to tax, go on: Scrooge…made his money in the stock market. He was a rich man. He didn’t share his wealth with the poor. There is a socialist lean-to this version of A Christmas Carol…and I wonder if Dickens’ book had the very same lines. I must admit, I’ve never read it.
For some reason, I thought the whole thing was less about redistributing money than knowing the joy of getting back to people and family, and charity of the heart.
But, even in Dickens’ time, there were those who knew how to play the stock market and got very rich, and big money makes MORE money, and all you have to do is sit and collect your dividends. As we have seen, in the crash of 2008, everything was all about saving the stock market, and the rich’s dividends, which they did.
The rich, including almost all in Congress, have actually tripled their fortunes since 2008.
Emmanuel Saez, an economist at the University of California, Berkeley, estimates the top 1 percent have received 52 percent of the economic growth from 1993 through 2010. By contrast, real median household income (inflation adjusted) has increased by less than 1/5 of 1 percent since 1980, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
So, don’t let anyone tell you that Reagan destroyed the economy. It was the Clinton’s that made the rich richer, and the middle class disappeared, and the Bush’s helped. And unless the Republicans get better at pointing out the fact of this little game the democrats play.. The Scrooge bomb….they will always lose.
But then again, maybe as long as they are in the 1 percent themselves, they just don’t care.
