Christmas Came Early This Year
The mendacious and merciless mercenaries of the Republican party have plenty to be thankful for this joyous season because once again they’ve bullied and bullshitted their way into the Federal feeding trough filled with dollars we’ve put in it but not them. They were just handed a $800 billion dollar gift that we, the few remaining workers, will have to pay over the next ten years but which if they would’ve been forced to pay a reasonable share of taxes, could’ve been used to create a federal work program like FDR created to dig the country out of the Great Depression. And they still manage to dupe the public into believing they care more about the deficit and the economy than the Democratic party does.
Once again the Democrats will hang their heads and wander off like Winnie the Pooh’s Eyore "thanks for noticing me," and Obama will plead "now let’s play nice and can’t we just try to get along?" Warren Buffett told us straight except he was wrong about one thing, he said the rich have been saying give us a tax break and we’ll hire employees, for the past decade. No, it’s been at least three decades. Remember Reagan’s trickle down on the people? Yeah, piss on the poor and the working people. The rich do nothing but drain our economy and the gap between them & us grows ever wider. We’re forced to subsidize their corporations, this is called the Free Market. And we’re forced to bail them out when their greed brings them down.
As for us, hey, they’ve set their sights on Social Security and Medicare and they are drooling with delight because they know they will eventually get their dirty hands on them. No, they won’t rest until every last one of us is begging for a crust of bread as in pre-revolutionary France when Marie Antoinette said "Let them eat cake," as the elite swine gorged themselves at Versailles.
We are truly a nation of suckers! Our apathy and indifference to politics and our "amusing ourselves to death," with "reality" shows, Dancing with the Stars, and all the other mental swill on T.V. has rendered us the walking dead. "Don’t worry, be happy." Obama has brought change to America, "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

P.S. The Corporate Cockroach Class will never allow the "Defense budget" to be significantly reduced or cut because the military is their enforcer, their henchmen, around the globe and allows them to rape, pillage, and plunder the resources and the people of the weaker nations in the name of Capitalism and Democracy.
Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year!
Ho! Ho! Ho!
