I think everyone should re-read the posting on page 1 from the "white construction worker."
He summed it up perfectly, as did the poster above me (marker3221's post, there are now others between ours).
This isn't racism. What he is trying to establish is the fact that IF we are going to use stimulus money (something I am actually opposed to, as I
think it will inflate our economy too much) we should use it for everyone. Not just the folks who already have money.
He is targetting the downtrodden and broke with his comments. He is saying we need to empower them to have a chance to move up in their standing.
Now, that being said, the really tricky thing in this dialogue is the comments they make trying to direct where this money will go, at the state
level, from the federal level.
Just like the video illustrated, this is taxation without proper representation.
Afterall, that "stimulus" money is being funded through our tax dollars. If it doesn't go where WE want it to go, it is, in fact, a mandate, like
It is a direct ORDER for us to do with our OWN MONEY what THEY WANT US TO.
This is what I don't like. But like he said, we will be too distracted to even notice.
Don't worry though, they keep this crap up and the day of reckoning draws ever closer. Remember that, Rangel. Remember that.
