I want to throw something out that occurred to me while I was reading an article by the Nobel Laureate economist, Paul Krugman.
The tax cuts are Blood money... ANYONE who takes glee over them is accepting "blood money".
WHY do I call them this? Because they (the conservatives and GOP) are BLEEDING this country dry.... they give away any revenue we have to billionaires and millionaires... who in actually do NOT need any more $. They're living in million $ homes, and have private jets and yachts, and vacation homes on the beach... they dine at posh restaurants, staying in $500 / night hotel rooms... riding in Limos... and looking at the working class like the fools they are.
This is the LIFE's BLOOD of this country and its future. Now you can argue, maybe our $ isn't always spent the best.. .OK, but many businesses aren't any better. That's why so many fail ! But THIS $ is the money we NEED for infrastructure... roads, better rails, bridges, upgrade electrical grids, dams... a multitude of things - TRILLIONS of $ worth to get back to LEADING the world in innovation and technology... PLUS we need the $ for things like Community Health Centers, feeding and caring for impoverished children . . . . research (materials, solar, battery technology, physics, space, etc) , medical research (drugs, procedures, new biotechnology)... we have hundreds of NEEDS . . . and throwing away 1.5 Billion+ where 90% goes the top 1%, was really stupid and it's BLEEDING our FUTURE.
So all the working folks who might get $500 -1000 extra next year enjoy your BLOOD MONEY . . . YOU are killing AMERICA and its future, your kids and grandkids future by playing the "Sucker's game" ! You fell for it again (fourth or fifth time?) Every time you hit a pothole, or have a brown or black out, or someone dies from a treatable disease, THINK of your pittance BLOOD MONEY . YOU are really killing YOURSELF !!

The working poor have been Made Complicit in "the theft" in order to make them fight for it all the more ~ OUT Of GUILT ~
"the argument for capitalism above collectivism still seems pretty compelling to me. I would rather take what little wealth (after taxes) I have labored for and leave the greater wealth to those who have labored more ardently, than to have us all cooked down by big government into one big, simmering, tasteless kettle of gruel."
My response: "Ok don't drive on the roads, don't cross any bridges, don't rely on police, firemen, EMS, or any other "collective" infrastructure... see how far you go or how long you live. Collectivism is NOT communism. We need these so we DO NOT become a 3rd or 4th rate country!! Want to take back seat to China, Japan, most of Europe including Russia? YOU will be eating gruel then !! ... come on.. think critically !!" "Oh and do NOT rely on the military to save you if we were attacked... collectivism you know !! "
So that's the mental cases we're dealing with. ... BELLVUE !!!
