Four Words & The Big Lie



Republicans believe that if you tell the same lie over and over and over....eventually it becomes the truth! Let's see...They've been telling the lie that if you give the wealthiest two percent of the country and the big corporations tax breaks and tax cuts and in some cases, not even bother about collecting taxes from them at all....They will then have enough money and freedom to create jobs...

This is a lie....Last week, I read that Bank of America is getting ready to cut 40,000 jobs in order to make it more profitable!  In most of these cases...These corporations don't create any jobs...At least not in the United States...They pocket the money and create jobs in India, Burma, Mexico, anywhere but here, where they don't have to pay benefits, deal with unions, etc, etc.  If you don't believe me...Next time your computer goes on the fritz and you call the help line...Check the accent of the person on the other end of the line....Chances are you'll be talking to someone from Burma or India or Guam....Used to be an American on the other end of the line.  Where is the so called American patriotism that the Republicans always talk about in that?

I'm just breaking it down so that the average fifth grade mentality can understand this.  I read all of the little racist and snide comments made by mostly white people who read all of the political news stories on MSN.com and I just shake my head...I ask myself...If the President weren't a Black man....Could they possibly look at the facts and see what is happening to them? It gets no plainer than that.

Look Last week President Obama laid out a specific and detailed jobs bill, the American Jobs Act . A proposal that won't add a dime...do you hear me??...not a dime to the national debt and would immediately help the unemployed, the poor and  the middle class.  This bill is probably doomed because of four key words that will halt even the most modest approval for these damn Republican and Tea Party people.
It asks large corporations and the most wealthy of us to "Pay Your Fair Share"

This is just unheard of....They would rather tell you another lie..Tell you that this is more of the President's "Socialist" jibe....Half of the Tea Party idiots and their supporters can't spell "socialism".  Everytime you get one of them isolated on a talk show or a newscast and you ask them why they are supporting rich people   getting tax cuts,while many of them are not rich and will be paying the bulk of those taxes, they smile and they get confused and they come up with some asinine slogan or they just bash the President , but they never give you an answer..Never....


When you listen to any of the Republican candidates talk about their solution for job creation and growth, they have none....I didn't watch that debate last week...Like I said...I've read enough fiction for awhile...but they talked about the Death Penalty in Texas (This got the loudest applause.....What has the death penalty in Texas got to do with creating jobs? I'm just asking!) and everything under the sun except job creation....For those who watched this circus, did you come out of this meeting with any new sense of hope? Did you really??


Yet these guys ,Mitt Romney and Rick Perry are actually gaining ground...People are actually listening to these two...Neither one , nor any of the others has said anything to me that gives me any faith in their ability to lead anything!

It comes down to four words, folks....Pay your fair share...Yes...I'm saying it....Forget the Obama boogie man that scares you so much....Tax the rich...tax the wealthy corporations....They can afford it...They are making huge profits......Tax them accordingly and you will reduce your deficit and make the way clear for new jobs...  If that is a lie...Well, at least it's a different lie than what the Republicans have been feeding us for a generation!
