Happy Friday, y’all!
A bitch is feeling illish just in time for the weekend.
Suffice it to say, I’m in a mood and listening to Scooter B. (President Bush for the uninitiated) speak didn’t do a damn thing to improve it. I mean, how the fuck am I supposed to feel better when that idiot is announcing his stimulus proposal with all the authority of a 5th grader trying to explain cold nuclear fusion.
If you ever needed proof that our government is in service to somebody other than the masses you’ve got it in this so-called economic stimulus plan.
The Growth Package (get your mind out of the gutter) is big on ideas and small on specifics but leaks hint at tax rebates for low to moderate income families and some businesses. The hope appears to be that rebates of between $300 and $800 will make the American consumer feel more secure and encourage spending.
Okay, so the Federal Government is encouraging low to moderate income Americans to ignore their debt, the lack of job growth, the increase in the cost of gas and food, the stagnant economic growth not to mention common fucking sense and take a whopping $800 to the mall. Oh, and they want us to do that shit swiftly so as not to delay stimulation (mind out of gutter!!).
Gawd, my Afro stings!
After years of pro-corporation anti-citizen let the rich get rich and the poor get poorer economic abuse dressed up as policy, these crazy motherfuckers fixed their face to tell the American people that we need to get our spending on or we’ll be sorry. “Let them eat cake” has become “Let them buy another iPod.”
How about an economic policy that encourages the production of something other than consumers? I don’t know, maybe something we could market to the world other than war and vacationing rich people that would bring some fucking cash in?
Or is that too much like right?
Well, fuck this shit.
Low and moderate income Americans need to pay down our debt…because the economy is fubar and we’re the first to get fucked over, fired or downsized.
You know what?
Let the people making six figures plus a year get the economy stimulated to the point of fulfillment (ooooh, you've got a naughty mind!) and increase their fucking debt since they’re the ones who’ve been feeling the bulk of the tax love from Bush and his minions.
They'll only understand a wallet based correction anyway.
The rest of us should follow sound economic policy and put that pitiful rebate towards debt …
