With some 12 days left till our election, Team Obama basically promising us 4 more years of the same economy crippling collectivist, Keynesian, big government bullshit, and all the LSM’s attempts to carry water for “THE WON” not working, the left is getting absolutely desperate. We are bombarded here in CT with class warfare commercials about how if Obama loses the bastards that will take over will basically help the rich soak us all.
Never mind that even the losers at HuffPo, in this lame attempt to spin the facts, admit that Wall Street had done far better under Obama than in all previous 8 Bush years combined, by 2011. Remember how the left told us the Bush years allowed Wall Street to rob the citizenry blind? Haliburton!!!11! So, 3 years of Team Blue fighting for the little guy, years of heavy Wall Street regulation which brought us such doozies as the Dodd-Franks 2K behemoth that all but guarantees our government will keep pushing home ownership lending as a social engineering tool, and bring us another economic meltdown, Wall Street did better.
And when even the Kossacks are admitting that the Fed’s policy of QE3 easing, done only so they can keep inflation down and prevent that from screwing up their nanny-welfare state spending as inflation would cause most tax dollars collected to be eaten up paying down interest on the $16 trillion of borrowed money, helps the rich more than the poor, you know your policies suck. It’s not accidental that you have the LSM producing lame ass excuses like this one to again shift blame from the results of the failed Keynesian wealth redistributionist policies of the last 4 years to blame tired old Boosh!
And yet, here we are again with another LSM bullshit class warfare piece intended to appeal to those that are jealous of what others have. The left is hell bent on capitalizing on base envy and greed to enrich themselves and their inner circle of selected buddies, while drastically increasing the number of people dependant on government for a piss poor daily subsistence, for the power it brings them. But hey, the bad guys are the people that want to unshackle the economy instead of controlling who gets to win and who gets to lose.
To quote Heinlein:
Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as “bad luck.”
The collectivists all but guarantee us this bad luck, but the elite figure when the shit hits the fan, they will keep the power and their standard of living, while the rest of us can live in this kind of paradise.
