Wealthy, Very Wealthy and Obscene Hoarders: Time for a Change

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

In the last few years, it was determined that being wealthy required about $3 million dollars. Now $30 million would make someone very wealthy. Thus, more than $100 million would make someone obscenely wealthy and more likely Obscene Hoarders.

Since the Middle Class produces the vast majority of the gross domestic product, why is it that the vast majority of the generated profits go to those that aren’t in production such as managers or investors? It is because corporate governance is by these same managers and investors. Corporate Board of Directors define incestuous, self-profiting relationships.

Now the 1% that receives most of national revenues claims they “earned” it and that every American has the same opportunities. Nothing is further from the truth. Ironically, many inherited their wealth. No one has a choice of parents.

Ask how many of these 1% would be willing to give it all up and generate their wealth again? I doubt any would be willing to start again especially given the laws they have sponsored to divert revenues to the 1%. In truth, probably 1% of 1% Revenue Hoarders really generated their own obscene hoards. The other 99% had parental wealth or friends to given them a head start. If nothing else, they had the advantage of being white and have educated parents. That in itself is enough to given them occupational advantage in the mid- and late 20th century.

It is time to restore paying the vast majority of profits to those who generate them. Only this will restore the balance of income. In the meantime, the 1% should pay their fair share of current and back taxes from illegitimate tax cuts.

America will Die if the Middle Class Dies

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

The development of the Middle Class in the 20th Century is what has made what America it is. Without the Middle Class which generates and consumes the majority of the economy, it doesn’t matter how many low paying the 1% Republican Revenue Hoarders aka Job Creators create. The Middle Class won’t have the money to spend!!

The redistribution of wealth from the Middle Class to the Revenue Hoarders has depressed the economy and the trend has continued. Mitt Romney’s tax reform proposals will increase Middle Class taxes given them less to spend while decreasing the taxes for the Revenue Hoarders….further redistributing wealth to the wealthy.

If a billionaire gets taxed $900 million he will still have 100 million. Countless of millions of Americans would volunteer to have this problem. Current American billionaires pay less than a third of this amount and they still want more.

It is time to restore the wealth to the Middle Class that that was taken from them by the Revenue Hoarders.

Are the Republican “Restore America” efforts reactionary and racist?

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

Republicans who want to defeat President Obama and “Restore America” remember a different America than most of us and history records.

Do they really want to Restore America to a time of segregation when there were “White Only” bathrooms and water fountains?
Do they really want to Restore America to a time when women were second class workers and subjugated by men?
Do they really want to Restore America to a time when economically disadvantage whites and minorities had no hope of advancement or education?

Republican memories and facts are very loosely based on reality and it is scary that they want to Restore America. Most of us are MUCH BETTER OFF than the Republican memory of America.

Call to Action: Lies, Liars, Un-American Republicans and the American Taliban

Sunday, September 2nd, 2012

Americans are being continuously lied to by the Republicans. They are systematically building lies upon lies to confuse the American voters into believing that they have the answers for the national agenda. They don’t. Ironically, their answers caused American’s problems to start with and they have steadfastly resisted any solutions so they can lessen President Obama’s re-elections prospects. Putting self interests over the interests of all American is Un-American.

Also, Tea Party Members are fascist who see no answers but their own which makes them equivalent to an American Taliban. They are politically militants who want to take power and execute their own minority agenda. Historically, we know this will lead to unprecedented civil strife. Unfortunately, they lack the courage, compassion and connection to see that their obligations to ALL AMERICANS and ALL HUMAN BEINGS supersedes their selfish agendas.

Finally, if Republicans can’t confuse voters to vote for them, then they plan to exclude them. The Voter ID laws in 35 states were put in place to deny traditionally Democratic voters their right to vote. Voter fraud is non-exsisent but instead is the LIE used to disenfranchised voters to steal state and the national election.

Call for Action: Call the Republicans liars to their face at every opportunity. They need to know that people know they are lying. Insist that all elected officials work for what is best for All Americans not just some Americans. Finally be prepared to vote for what is good for American… not for what is good for either the Republicans or Democrats.
