Are You Satisfied?
So let me get this straight. All that is stopping the the “job creating top 1%” from hiring is a continuation of the Bush tax cuts for them which amount to a whopping $80,000 a year.
Excuse me? The upper 1% makes 80 grand in a day or less and this is what is stopping the hiring? they spend This income bracket had the current tax cuts in place as they drove the economy off a cliff. This cut was in place as this country hemorrhaged 500,000 jobs a month. This tax cut was in place as this bracket continued to decimate the middle class and ship jobs over seas over the last 10 years.
Now, according to Republicans, we are to believe that if we would just continue to give them $80,000 a year in a tax break they will bring back the jobs they sent away and begin hiring Americans back to fix this economy. Sorry, but I have not had a sip of the Kool-Aid they are handing out.
Blue collar whites voted in these people who tell them that this is the case. C’mon man, you are all smarter than this. You allowed them to scare you with images of illegal aliens coming into this country and taking your jobs. I am so sure that the undocumented day laborer on the corner or at the home Depot looking for work for a day is responsible for you losing the well paying manufacturing job, that got you to the middle class, that got shipped overseas, is responsible. Seriously?
You allowed them to scare you with the specter of Sharia law and the Muslim-ization of America although we already have robust Muslim communities and have had them for decades. You allowed them to tell you that the government is trying to kill grandma. You allowed them to tell you that the black guy in th3e white house can’t possibly be one of us.
You allowed an Australian born media mogul to serve you hate, fear and lies, FoxNews, and you accept it willingly because it plays on your worst fears and lowest common denominator that you share. Fear of them; the brown people, the Gay people, the woman who wants to have a choice of what to do with her own body, the Hispanics, the Middle Eastern, the black, the brown people, anyone who does not look like you.
We are about to enter a winter of discontent where nothing of any substance will get done by our government. Obstruction has been kicked up a notch with the legitimization of the Tea Baggers. You blue collar scared, narrow-minded white people will be the death of any progress in this country. You have your country back, now watch it drown.
Will you ever realize that the Fox Aussie means this country no good. He is here to make money, that is all. This is not his country, it is ours!! The current Republican leadership does not care about you. All they care about is power. The agenda was supposed to be jobs. That is what they sold you. No, the agenda is to make the black guy a one term president. How progressive!
I am calling on my blue collar white brothers and sisters who can still think for themselves to talk to the Fox zombies and explain this to them. Explain to them that the enlightened world that once respected at us is now laughing at us as the boorish, no class cowboys they portray us to be. WE CAN DO BETTER. WE MUST DO BETTER!!
