Trickledown - Have you received your trickle?

Last edited Sat May 5, 2012, 03:17 PM - Edit history (1)

In the last 30 years the trend in the USofA was for the gap between the rich and the 99% to continue widening. If this trend continues, we will live in a Kingdom or Serfdom like Saudi Arabia. Let me repeat that. If we don’t reverse this “Trickledown” trend, we the 99% will become poor, peons, paupers, etc. Kiss the middleclass goodbye.
The Democrats are trying to slow this trend down but the Republicans make no bones that they don’t want this trend to stop let alone reverse.

You can fool the American people some of the time, but you can fool the gullible Republicans all of the time. “Honest, Charlie Brown, this time wealth will really trickle down.”

I apologize for the condescension above. I tried to write this to a gullible.



Edit: Had to correct "condensation" to condescension. Damn OttoCorrect.

11. Even a ponzi scheme

Even a ponzi scheme makes me think I am doing good. Trickledown doesnt bother to even try to fool me.

5. What "trickle down" really means is...

Nothing left but the shit to "trickle down" to Joe Six-pack, after the top one % gets done wringing out the economy.

7. You people don't seem to understand the concept.......

of "trickle down".

The ONLY ones who get the benefit of "trickle down" are the political faciliators and a few henchmen for the capitalists. The rest of us get trickled ON.
