...about Obama not raising taxes, consider the following:
He is going to print a TRILLION dollars' worth of "new jobs".
It's the worst sort of taxation without representation. It could be said to be the only "flat" tax we'll ever have. Now I don't know exactly how much currency the engravers will gin up, but flooding the market with counterfeit (might as well be) money is one sure way to make sure everybody has less than before and the government has more. And its employees have more, too.
I saw this lovely little tidbid last night, lost track of it, and found it anew at TJIC's place.
If the Left could just get half as indignant about this unequal distribution of wealth as they do about America as compared to the rest of the world, we might be able to work together to fix things. As it is, I don't see anyone giving up their sweet, sweet government jobs (in 15 years, just look at the over 60% growth in top grade positions for whites, and almost 300% growth in top grade positions for blacks, and that survey is almost 10 years old) and pensions, nor do I see the heads of government agencies being villified for their inept handling of the public trust.
If our government were a business, it would have failed by now. Oh,wait...
