It’s fine for Repugnicans and other assorted wingnuts to have differences of opinion with the majority of us “socialist,” “communist” and “fascist” Americans, who voted for B. Hussein Obama on Nov. 4, 2008. But do the Repugnicans and the other wingnuts, a la 1984, get to rewrite history? Even very recent history?
Repugnican president wannabe Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, one of the latest Repugnicans to kiss the ring of Sauron worn by Grand Dragon Rush Limbaugh, parroted the current Repugnican talking point when he defended Limbaugh, stating that Limbaugh “articulates very well the concern people have about growing government spending without an end in sight.”
“Growing government spending without an end in sight”…
President Barack Obama in January (which in the United States of Amnesia already is ancient fucking history, I know…) inherited a record federal budget deficit of $1.3 trillion from “President” George W. Bush, whose followers now are screaming about the critically vital importance of fiscal responsibility.
We had a record federal budget deficit under George Bush the First; then, we had a federal budget surplus of $127 billion at the end of Democratic President Bill Clinton’s second term. Bush the Second quickly squandered that surplus, and, in his quest to be just like his daddy, left the next president (a Democrat, of course) with a record federal budget deficit (mission really accomplished!).
New Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner today called the $1.3 trillion federal budget deficit that Bush left for Obama “the worst fiscal situation in American history.”
And Geithner notes that the spending on the nation and on the American people that President Obama wants to do now is the result of the incredible derilection of duty of the Bush regime to ensure that while the Bush regime was trying to expand the capitalists’ global empire by bombing innocent civilians abroad using billions upon billions of the American taxpayers’ dollars to do that, things here at home didn’t go to complete and total shit. (I paraphrase, of course…)
In short, Obama has a helluva fucking clean-up job to do, just as Texans did after George W. Bush left office there. Bush the Second is nothing if not consistent; everything that he touches turns to shit.
And the Repugnicans in Washington, who always have opposed spending the American taxpayers’ money on the American taxpayers instead of on rich tax cheats such as those of the corporatocracy, had figured that Obama was screwed in terms of being able to do any social spending because on his very first day at the job he’d been handed a record federal budget deficit, just like Bill Clinton was.
It has become a pattern (Repugnicans running the nation into the ground and Democrats resurrecting the nation, only to have Repugnicans run the nation into the ground yet once again), and the Repugnicans had thought that they had hamstrung the new Democratic president by leaving him with 1.3 trillion less than zero, but Obama has thrown it right back into the Repugnicans’ faces by pledging to go ahead and do the social spending that is required to keep the American empire afloat — and pledging to make sure that the wealthy Benedict Arnolds start paying their fair share of taxes.
It is the super-wealthy, such as News Corp. owner Rupert Murdoch, the owner of Fox “News” Channel and the New York Post (you know, that rag that favors monkey cartoons), who use their corporately owned and controlled media to widely disseminate falsehoods about “socialism” and “communism” and “fascism” to the idiot Joe the Plumbers out there who are so fucking stupid that they vote for Repugnicans, which is like the chickens voting for Colonel Sanders.
These Joe the Plumbers — poor and middle-class stupid white men who dream of being stupid filthy rich white men — think that one day they will be rich and then they won’t have to pay their fair share of taxes. No, they won’t be rich, and their lottery mentality is hurting them far more than it’s helping them.
Under President Obama’s plans, those who make less than $250,000 a year won’t get a federal income tax increase, but actually will see a decrease — and those who make less than $250,000 comprise 95 percent of the American population. That sounds pretty fucking fair to me, but not to the Joe the Plumbers out there with the lottery mentality who stupidly think that they’re going to be millionaires one day. (Joe, while I have you, have you bothered to get your plumber’s license yet? Or is it still Barack Obama’s fault that you’re not filthy rich by now?)
To vote against your own best interests — really, how fucking stupid is that?
To keep the American ship from sinking after the unelected Bush regime rammed it into an iceberg is not “socialism” or “communism” or “fascism.”
It is what you call patriotism.
As a patriot, I want my tax dollars to go to things that benefit my nation and my fellow Americans, such as schools and hospitals and roadways and environmental protection — instead of to things like missiles and bombs that are dropped upon innocent civilians for global capitalist expansion. How would Jesus spend the American taxpayers’ money?
Those who oppose Americans’ tax dollars going to such things as health care and education and infrastructure and environmental protection instead of into the pockets of the likes of the fat cats of Dick Cheney’s Halliburton and the other war-profiteering subsidiaries of BushCheneyCorp — they are the traitors, for they help along the destruction of their own nation.
