No to removing the bush tax cuts. Why? 250k is not rich, 250k is damn near poverty levels..do not tax them
Remove unions...some teachers are making almost 80k a year (when you include benefits). They are riding the gravy train and need to have their pay pinched and their voice removed.
so...what we learned then is that 250k+ in profit alone (not including benefits they get) = poor people that need protecting
whereas 80k total (benefits can take up to half that number) = rich elitists whom need to be crushed and hammered...
You know David I supported bail outs of the auto industry believe my buddies would have their jobs saved, believing we had no choice, believing that we needed to take action to save this country... but it was all a scheme, a way to bail out wealthy folks.... I fooled myself, I was fooled with the bail out of wallstreet, and I am not afraid to admit this. People need to come to terms with the reality that this way of belief, this ideology of relying on the wealthy, it is a ponzi scheme and it eating this country alive.

Bevor Americans ever come together as a nation or even as a clan for survival purpose, the'll attack each other like animals for a crumb of bread, just like they become subhuman today, falling and crawling over each other just to get the latest plastic gadget cheaper then the other guy. Face it, Americans: The illusion that has been brain washed into you, that shopping and owning loads of crap brings salvation, has allready reduced you to a certain degree to subhumans..

Are we really victims in all of this; aren't we all complicit in the grand scheme? We all want the same things those billionaires have and isn't that why we allowed ourselves to get fat and lazy here in America?
