The next conservative son-of-a-bitch that tells me government need to cut spending

on "entitlemant programs" like social security and medicare is going to get my foot in their ass. The government spending that is destroying our economy is in the form of MILITARY, and support of foreign governments' military's. We could feed, house, and educate every poor man, woman, and child in the fucking country with what we spend on killing and destruction. STUPID FUCKERS!

1. I know, I hear it every day.

Blame unions, cut spending, cut spending...when I point out that our clients won't buy houses from us if they don't have money, they go off in a different direction. So predictable. Oh, right, it was 3 pm and rush was over, so they wander around the office trying to get someone to listen to them.

3. "GREEDY FUCKERS!"

FTFY

Seriously though, they know the score, they're just being paid to convince us to let the 1% do this.

The fact that they have to convince us at all says that they know they aren't all powerful(yet), otherwise they'd just tell us SSI belongs to them now.

10. Wingnuts get their empty heads filled up and repeating what they heard, expecting an echo.

Won't give a source because they know they've been listening to trash and you'd give 'em hell if they admitted it.

5. HOOORAY

 

someone else gets it after all. Any phuckwadd that doesn't rrealize that cutting SS benefits will not affect our budget deficit or our Natinal debt is either delusional, or trying to bamboozle you. Even Ronnie-Ray-Gunn knew this.

6. Ask them if they really "Want Their America Back"?

When they say yes,
inform them that the Republican President of those times (Dwight Eisenhower) set the upper tax bracket at 90%
and said that the RICH have a Patriotic Duty to help pay off the National Debt.
Capital Gains were taxed at a minimum of 25%.

Corporations paid their fair share too,
were Heavily Regulated,
and UNIONS were STRONG.
Government Spending was HUGE with immense Public Works Infrastructure Projects like building the Interstate Highway System.
Social Spending Programs like the GI Bill were sending MILLIONS to College and financing their homes.

THAT America built the largest, wealthiest, and most upwardly mobile Working Class the World had ever seen.
Small locally owned businesses ("entrepreneurs") THRIVED,
AND....some people STILL Got Very RICH.
THAT is HISTORY.

I want THAT America BACK too!

7. They're not entitlements...they're BENEFITS!

People have paid into Medicare and SS via payroll taxes all their lives.

8. And a percentage of our military involvement really protects the interests of Americans

here in the US. We do need a strong and flexible military.

But all too much of it is simply to protect the interests of corporations around the world. It simply helps them ship their products to the US to sell.

A portion of our military costs should be added to the cost of every imported item we buy -- and maybe even everything we export.

Free trade is expensive. You have to keep trade routes open.
