…. and give to the poor.
I see Obama is walking the walk and talking the talk with respect to taking on the lobbyists and the rich and powerful. Not only is he doing that but he has a plan too, and one that he is prepared to fight for.
In short, the plan is to take from the rich and give to the poor. Now, there is a concept! Needless to say, the Republicans (Conservatives) are aghast, crying, because this goes against everything they believe in i.e. they believe and practice the philosophy of taking from the poor and giving to the rich. What jokers… the tears of a clown.
If you read the article above you will see his plan makes sense. Taking from those who have too much and distributing it to those that don’t, makes sense! Some would call it communist, but you have to look deeper and you will see it actually is not, in that it closes loop holes and tax breaks against those who don’t need it, and don’t deserve it, and creates true competition as well, by forcing companies to bid and compete, rather than the current system of cronyism, which only just drives up the price of everything. Read the article and you will see what I mean.
Happy days will soon be here again. After decades of GREED by the Reganites and Bushites, finally, a breath of fresh air… and a piece of the pie.
I think the thing I like the best about Obama is that he is not afraid to reinvent the wheel and shake up the status quo (thats something we need here). Reminds me of the sixties. Flower power anyone?
Editors note: It has been pointed out to me, my comment with respect to ‘decades of greed by the Reganites and Bushites’, should also include the Clintonites too. Fair enough.
Imagine a flock of pigeons in a corn field. Imagine that ninety-nine of them, instead of pecking the corn they need and using it as they need it, start to collect all they can into one big heap. Imagine that they do not leave much corn for themselves, but save this big heap of corn on behalf of the vilest and worst in their flock. Imagine that they all sit in a circle and watch this one pigeon, who squanders and wastes this wealth. And then imagine that they rush at a weak pigeon who is the most hungry among them who darest to take one grain from the heap without permission, and they punish him.
If you can imagine this, then you can understand the day-to-day behaviour of mankind.
