Real Americans Don’t Hate The Rich
They Want To Be Rich!
And I also question the timing.
Page One of today’s L.A. Times says:
From front to back and on nearly every page, President Obama’s new budget plan delivers a stark message: It’s time for the rich to lighten the load on the middle class.
That’s right, rich folks! You’ve been avoiding your fair share of the taxes for far too long! Stop putting so much of the load on the middle class!
And this his what he found “after the jump”. You know – where they like to bury the information they don’t want you to see.
[S]ome economists warned that higher taxes on the affluent could reduce their entrepreneurial energy and were unfair because upper-income Americans already pay a large share of the government’s total revenue.
You don’t say.
Yeah. I call that – what the LA Times writes – class warfare, and I don’t believe that Americans buy into it (they never have, even in the hay-day of socialist unionisation in the ’30s). Well, some do, of course. And we see them in the highest echelons of government, just as we see them in the editorial sections of the major newspapers (what’s left of them, anyway). After the lessons of the ’30s, and the lessons of the ’80s, I’m beyond questioning their intelligence. I question their motives and patriotism.
I lied before. I don’t question their timing at all. It’s obvious and transparent.
