Well you are getting a great insight into the plutocracy that many Americans want to see in the White House. A spokesperson for Romney explained that we had all the tax information “you people need.” Ann Romney’s comment in regard to the tax returns, that “we’ve given all you people need to know” has gotten a lot of press because of the “you people”. But the focus should also be on “need to know,” as in we will decide what you need to know. See they have it all figured out for us and in a democracy, we should not be meddling in what they think is best for us or getting out of bounds on what we need to know.
It is almost shocking that people are just figuring out that Michele Bachmann is a fruit loop. From the $2 billion Obama was going to spend on his trip to India which she got from a reliable blogger in India to her defamation of a public servant as an Islamist infiltrator, she and her FOX news bullhorn are the new McCarthyism. Then there was her claim that the Islamist Brotherhood got elected in Egypt because the U.S. wanted that, resulting in Hillary getting tomatoed in Egypt. A Congresswoman on the Intelligence Committee wouldn’t mislead us Egyptians on her blog would she? You have to wonder what the citizens of Minnesota who elected her were thinking. Or maybe that is our state today, nonthinking.
Global warming deniers must be having a hard time these days as the mid-west drys up (as predicted by global warming), we had the warmest winter on record, the weather extremes all fit the model and the trends just continue. But of course it must be God punishing us for gay marriage. We are a nation of numbskulls.
And of course we need better and easier access to guns as another fruit loop kills at least 12 in a Denver theater. It shows that the nuts are in charge after Gabriel Gifford’s shooting and Congress could not even limit the size of ammunition clips, which would have reduced the carnage. Just what “well regulated militia” (2nd Amendment) was either shooter a member of? But no, we all need access to an AK-47 to defend us from the Black Helicopters from the UN coming to take away our rights. Oh wait! Maybe he felt threatened by the families there and wanted “to stand and defend”. Oh we are such a nation of numbskulls.
One last shot over the bow: You can’t reduce the deficit and improve the economy. It is all the rage today to say that, but as long as they do, they are perpetuating a lie to tell people what they want to hear instead of what they need to hear. Businesses won’t invest so government must pick up the slack, i.e., increased deficit. Anyone who took Econ 101 and understood it would know you can’t do both according to the textbooks. If we tried to do both at the same time, well, that is called austerity. But wait! It has been and is being tried in Ireland, England, Greece, Spain, and Europe in general and guess what? Austerity does not bring business “confidence and increased spending”. What is wrong with America that we can’t comprehend this simple idea? The numbskull nation led by fat old white men who will pander to anyone to keep what they have.
