The dirty secret is there are a lot of people that want the economy to fail, having everyone else being miserable makes them happy.
President Cloward-Piven’s only goal is to “overwhelm the system” so he can replace it with a peoples’ paradise.
Let them OWN it and orce them to EAT it!
EBT & SNAP for everyone!
It wasn't put like this in the communist manifesto but it was expressed many times in their writings.
Research the damage done by the luxury tax in the 1990 tax reform bill the Bush 41 signed.
Collectivism does not concern itself with the health of an economy or the wellbeing of people. It concerns itself with the consolidation of the machine.
And the CBO said obummercare was going to save billions.
The economy will contract in DIRECT proportion to the amount removed...and then, to add insult to injury, there will be the multiplier affect which means that a downward spiral in economic activity will have been created (i.e. the downward spiral will have momentum).
Anyone who really believes this is an idiot, pure and simple.
More trash that ideas won’t work from “Pharaoh-Bamma, just Tax the Rich.”
Although ultimately of course whether a new company continues growing and creates self-sustaining jobs is a function of customers ability and willingness to pay for the companys products, not the entrepreneur or the investor capital. What good are the tax breaks if they just go straight into the bank (where it either sits and earns interest) or get invested overseas or in companies that already have strong demand to sell products and create jobs ?
The companys customers are who buy the companys products that in turn creates the need for the employees to produce, sell, and service those products. If those customers go broke by tax policies that reward the 1% at the expense of everyone else, the demand for the companys products will collapse. And the jobs will disappear, regardless of what the entrepreneur does.
Whenever the Democrats chime up with “tax the rich”, the only rebuttal should be that
“Hating and hurting other people won’t make their life any better. Democrats have long hated and tried to hurt people for their race, for their religion, and for just about every other reason. But it never, ever, either takes away their pain, or improves their lives in any way.
“So Democrats, stop hating people, stop trying to hurt people. Government can’t make your life any better, only you can. You could hate and kill every other person in the world, and you would still be miserable inside. They are not the problem. You are. But you can change yourself, even if you can’t change the world. Stop hating, stop trying to hurt people.”
Sorry Suzan - not a racist remark, just a truthful one.
If you are associated with the Obamadork you are at best a bimbo, and most probably a felon/cretin who’s never had (nor ever could hold) a real job.
You are indeed associated with the Obamadork.
Love it, live it, you ignorant s......
No one will even begin to grasp the essential nature of the Obama regime until logic is thrown out the window and every bit of news - bar none - is considered in the extent to which events contribute to Obama’s Marxist Revolution.
That is the ultimate goal, whether it “contributes to the ecomony” or - infinitely more likely - drives the United States to its knees.
Any and all other considerations are, at best, peripheral.
"Fairness" is not objective, what is fair to one is not EVER exactly the same to another. Yet as a feeling it is a powerful rhetorical and political tool. No one can define it but everyone feels it and self-interprets it. Hitler and many Germans thought the Jews were unfairly benefitting during post WW1 and felt the need to do something about it.
Personally, I feel that a consistent appeal to 'fairness' is the mark of a failure who is avoiding the facts. President Obama in this past campaign had little to run upon except how unfair his opponent was in wealth and skin hue. Our fellow citizens, urged on by the liberal media, chose him for re-election. I fear that subjective fairness will cost us dearly over the next 4 years.
For egalitarians, equality is the fundamental moral value and, therefore the standard of good and evil. This requires a new definition of justice which is now defined as fairness.Men's differences though real, are not morally relevant.And the negative consequences of this new morality and justice are not important.What is important is equality as an end in itself.
Don't believe I have ever seen a triple talker before. Somebody who is for something, against something and have no opinion... all at the same time.
Fairness at the expense of prudent economic consequence is malfeasance. Malfeasance leads to impeachment.
Margaret Thatcher had an answer for that.
