Human events Excerpt:Well, the future should be alot more predictable now - right? The folks who drove our country off the fiscal cliff were voted back in charge of the purse strings and their Wall Street crony Ryan will be directing the congressional budget writing committee. What more certainty do the rich need? I'm being perfectly reasonable here, afterall, the whole "certainty" effect is mostly psychological - is it not?
Today there is growing uncertainty about the future tax burden. Those who would build businesses and expand employment hold back when the tax future is unpredictable. These taxpayers need certainty that they will not face a huge wave of tax increases in 2011 and another one in 2013. -- Rep. Paul Ryan
So now I look at the first two editorials after Red Tuesday out from the GOP-sponsored MediaCorpse Janesville Gazette and wouldn't you know it; first up Wednesday is the promotion of a new tollway tax to foist onto the taxed enough already Scott Walker angry mob majority. Even worse, the toll system mentioned are class war tolls that would give the rich their own express lanes on Wisconsin's freeway road system. No mention of an off-setting tax cut elsewhere. Just a brand new tax in the form of a tollway fee.
Thursday's editorial titled, "Voters need patience on economy" seemed like the kind of standard "soothe the suckers" damage control preparatory work you'd expect from your shady neighborhood auto dealer after he's talked you into trading in your old but trusty ride for the polished turd that's been leaking fluids all over the lot for the past six months. You return to the lot two days later to reverse the deal, but find ol' Betsy is gone. "Give the beauty a chance" says the con artist dealer of the bondo bucket he sold you, "have patience and things will all work out."
The core message to their editorial was: Come on now folks, forget all the campaign promises, whatever you do - don't start redirecting your anger toward republicans so quickly. Fixing the economy and bringing back jobs is gonna take years, hee - hee, maybe even decades. Keep your anger and your lunacy focused on Obama and the democrats. We're not through demonizing them and that illegitimate democrat president. Just wait two more years until we can choose a new president!
If the economy doesn't flip within six months, I see buyer's remorse setting in really fast for Red Tuesday voters. When we have the kind empty suits voted into office based primarily on a false narrative of anger, fear, lies and lunacy, don't expect the buyers to take too kindly when they find out they've been royally screwed.
Added Note on Gazette Editorial: They wrote, "Voters ousted ethically challenged Rep. Mike Sheridan of Janesville....
Never mind that the newspaper endorsed him. By rejecting Sheridan, perhaps voters were also rejecting the ethically challenged Janesville newspaper.
