As Rightie continues to pound away at President Obama’s performance with The U.S. Economy, how is it that they cannot seem to get their facts straight on the number of private sector jobs that have been created since Obama took office?
Why is it that when the Republicans are complaining about how Obama’s Economic Policies have led to more poverty in The United States, they conveniently fail to tell us that most of the poverty in The United States is in GOP-Controlled Southern States?
Is that some kind of a statement about how well Republican Economic policies work or what?
Is it possible that The Right Wing can pump enough cash into the November, 2012 Presidential Elections to virtually (Or actually) buy it? Will we see more of what I like to refer to as “The Wisconsin Effect” which I believe was enabled by “Citizens United” and all the Super Political Action Committee Money that flowed into the recall election effort in that state recently?
Can people actually be convinced by the power of Big Money to vote against their own best interests?
“But I saw it on TV – - -”
I have a great idea and I would like to share it right here and right now with my tongue in my cheek – - – Here is what we want to do: Let us make haste to elect ourselves a Really Radical Conservative Government in November, 2012 – - – just as quick as we humanly can – - – so that we can get some more unions busted, take away some more pensions and wage increases, and spread some of that good old Self Reliant, Self Sufficient Republican Poverty to all the rest of the states as well.
Of course, we don’t want to forget to give the rich “Job Creators” a lot more and much bigger tax breaks that lower wage earners will pay for. We have all seen how giving more money to the Rich causes new jobs to be created, haven’t we?
If that theory worked, we would have so many jobs in The United States right now that they could never ever be filled.
Giving money to the Rich has not ever worked to stimulate the economy to create jobs and it ain’t about to work now. The “Job Creators” have been getting millions in Bush Tax Breaks for at least 11 years now so my question is, “Where are the jobs?” If tax breaks to the wealthy insures job creation – - – where are the jobs?
Yeah! We definitely need to get some Righties elected and give them control of the government so we can spread some of that good old fashioned Rightie Poverty around a little bit, don’t you think?
We shall see.
