8-7-10 weekend brain
My friend Ann thinks I have been talking “conservative” lately. I think she might be wondering if she is rubbing off on me.
Maybe a little..... but probably not much. I am all for the Bush tax cuts to expire. It only benefited the wealthy and only effected 7% of “small business”, many which seemed to be Law Firms. (reported on NPR)
To prove myself, I just have to read the Des Moines Register’s “Two Cent Worth” column where people can phone in brief “editorials” anonymously…. Friday there were several I agreed with.
“The largest corporations, the wealthy and the highest income earner are holding the rest of America hostage for more tax cuts. How pathetic”. Signed- some guy
The New Pledge of Allegiance: I pledge allegiance to the cash of the CFO. And to the corporation from which it came, One Congress brought and paid for, with perks and profits for them all. Signed- One the losing End
So see Ann, I might lead a conservative life, but I still think Reagan and Bush made a mess of things. Although I do NOW see that it is the whole Congress and the whole system that is corrupt and pathetic.
I wonder what we can do about it?
