A majority of Americans have fallen for the bizarro narrative constructed by our elite. It started with Ronald Reagan, who lowered the top marginal tax rate from where it was at 60% to a ridiculous 28% right after he took office, and there was talk of wealth “trickling down” from the top to the bottom. Yeah, sure, if you believe in trickle down, I've got a bottle of pee labeled lemonade for you to share with your loved ones. Under Bush Two trickle down morphed into gusher up from the poor to the rich, and it is this that the GOP is fighting to continue. Another thing about Reagan: he's the guy who started the whole tradition of vilifying black women that now happened under Obama, when Ronnie picked on "welfare queens" as the America's prime villains.
Whereas before Reagan, a regular guy could work for General Motors all his life and afford a home for his family and retire with dignity on one salary, suddenly and mysteriously it all changed after the Reagan tax cut, by the most bizarre coincidence ever in the economic history of humankind, inexplicably and miraculously, to the point that today most middle class couples struggle to get by on two salaries. Ask a member of the elite what's going on when he turns off his golden faucet and opens his $6,000 shower curtain, and he'll tell you that in the “free market” there are winners and losers. Yeah, sure. In our “free market” the banks get to borrow millions from the Fed at 0.2% interest and then go play with it. My granny with Alzheimer's can make money on that.
And they say the people at Goldman Sachs are smart. If they're so smart, how come they ran crying like babies to Congress to bail them out with our tax dollars? If they're so smart, why do they need a rigged market to make money? Goldman Sachs were about to go under like Lehman Brothers because there was a run on them. Believe me, Goldman Sachs is way, way dumb. They're just not quite as dumb as the other assholes on Wall Street, who have their jobs because they're so useless, Daddy sent them to Wall Street because that's where the dumbass gentlemen C kids of the elite can sell crooked derivatives to their contacts running pension funds. Wall Street is a protected reservation for the disabled offspring of the elite. And these are the entitled bastards who've bought Congress wholesale, who were the biggest contributors to Obama's campaign, and whose lobbyists write our laws.
