Now we're talking about ...taxes? Badger should look up the taxes paid by
Exxon Mobil in relation to its profits before accusing anyone of using it as a
parasite buffet. This all began with Krauthammer's standing up for the
ultra-wealthy who have helped make our summers into an inferno. which, I guess,
is fine with Badger. I prefer a policy which improves the climate rather than
enabling the rich to control the planet even more.
"Businesses have LOTS of cash these days..."So the host has
plenty of blood to spare...in the eyes of the parasite.The U6 labor
underutilization rose a half a percent in June of 2013, up to 14.3%. That is a
lot of people, humans, fellow citizens, neighbors, family members. And that his
after 6.2 Trillion in new debt to pay for it. This is not successful economic
policy.If Obama really did improve the economic situation, that
would be a legacy worth having, but it runs contrary to giving the government
more power and the notion that businesses exist solely to be taxed into oblivion
to strengthen the central government power.Obama thought the ACA
would be the crown, but it has turned out to be a millstone that had to be
kicked down the road to keep it from destroying him. So now Obama
runs around trying to find another legacy, while people suffer and the debt
piles ever higher. It will be a long 3 1/2 years.
Businesses have LOTS of cash these days and can hire anyone they want, but no
one can compel them to hire anyone since we don't live under socialism.
What we DO live under is an economy considerably improved from the one Obama got
in '09, and that's despite GOP efforts to oppose every job creation
measure except more oil pipelines. As for the legacy thing,
doesn't Badger remember GWB wrapping up his second forgettable term with a
kind of "no apology" tour aimed at placing the blame for no Iraqi
WMD's on the CIA? That;s right - the same guys Cheney demanded some very
SPECIFIC answers from.
As usual, Obama wants to talk about anything but unemployment and the economy.
And heck, why not? The economy is such a downer and he doesn't have a clue
how to help. But Al Gore got a Nobel prize for global warming, and Obama got one
for making a speech on reducing nuclear bombs. So he is just throwing any
speech out there that might net another prize. It seems that
Obama's number one priority is his legacy, which pushes the toughest issue
America faces, the economy, way down the list. Obama has placed many other
issues higher, not out of expediency for the betterment of America, but because
they are more likely to leave him a positive legacy. With him, it is always
about number 1.
I wonder just what Dr. K would consider a GOOD time to try to roll back forces
that could change the earth profoundly. It certainly hasn't received nearly
as much attention as FORTY legislative attempts to end the ACA. Maybe the House
should try to officially discredit science itself.
Great article as usual Dr. Krauthammer!
With all this going on, you'd think another volley in the 'war on
porn' would be equally silly, eh Charles?
