I Don’t Give a Tinker’s Damn about the FISCAL CLIFF!







The so-called Fiscal Cliff is a political creation...the cousin to Starve the Beast. I don’t know why they think everyone is so dumb. We print our own currency, set the interest rate and owe a third of the debt to ourselves. Can I rant a little? Everytime I hear politicians say the approach to solving the deficit should be “fair and balanced”, I want to spit. There was absolutely nothing fair and balanced about its accumulation. The rich made out like bandits, while the Middle Class struggled.



But, you hear it all the time...”everyone has to sacrifice”. Really? Well, the Middle Class has been sacrificing for decades. Now, all of a sudden, it is fair for “everyone” to feel the pinch? I don’t think so! The Middle Class has been slapped, punched and kicked long enough. The rich have extracted the national treasury and refused to invest in the country and the Middle Class owes them something more? The so-called job creators, created no jobs. They just took their tax-cuts and ran. Not because they are uncertain...because they are greedy, heartless and unpatriotic.



The Middle Class stood in unemployment lines, suffered the humiliation of food stamps and food pantries, dropped out of college or couldn’t go, moved back home, suffered through illness without medical care, watched the value of our homes diminish, moved into our cars and onto the streets. We already went over the cliff. We are broke and we should sacrifice more?



I DON'T THINK SO.



To whom much is given, much is expected; and that is as it should be. The rich reaped all the benefits of the downturn, so let them finance the upturn. Raise taxes on the rich and give the Middle Class the tax cuts for a change. Raise the minimum wage to $12.00 an hour, so anyone working can earn a living wage. Give everyone access to healthcare and an education. After a few decades, like the rich had, then we can talk about “fair and balanced”. Until then, leave the Middle Class alone!



IT'S OUR TURN!

2. The ' Fiscal Cliff ' is nothing more than an invented propaganda control term

used to inject fear into the sleeping masses.

'Falling Off The Fiscal CLIFF'.......really? And whats on the OTHER side when you land? Another Cliff?


The rich have been gaming the system to their advantage as far back as one can see.


I have my snowboard!
