I know that the only critical points for determining which presidential candidate to vote for are found in 40 year old smear-by-association points. I know that. Or 40 year old prisoner of war stories. All of this is oh-so-important. Reliving and rearguing circa 1968 material has to be the only determining factor in choosing our candidate. I know this because that's what every Patriotic Knee Pad Network is talking about and will continue to talk about. It MUST be the most important issue to us 21st century dwellers.
What the little people need to know is what some guys did 40 years ago....guys who now know Barack Obama. They didn't know Obama 40 years ago....because he was, like, 8 years old....but every American must decide who to vote for anyway.....not over current pressing national issues....but on insinuation-by-association.
I suppose if my political party had devastated America so thoroughly with their last 8 years of adventuresome wars of choice and supply side giveaways to the wealthiest...resulting in a broken military and a bankrupt Treasury....I would be trying to talk about other distracting issues as well.
Pressing issues like how in the hell we are going to get out of the terrible laissez faire created economic catastrophe we are now in.
Here's the I-don't-know-much-about-economic-stuff Straight Talker's plan....
Sen. John McCain is proposing tax cuts that would either cause the federal deficit to explode or would require unprecedented spending cuts equal to one-third of federal spending on domestic programs.
Once thought of as a deficit hawk, the near-certain Republican presidential nominee is now putting more stress on the traditional Republican orthodoxy of tax cuts. Altogether, he proposes more than $650 billion in tax cuts a year, much of it benefiting corporations and upper-income families. That includes the cost of extending tax cuts implemented under President Bush that he voted against twice. Link
Umm....that piece is from the uber-conservative Wall Street Journal, you know, the official paper of the GOP base.
The nation's economy is teetering on the edge of depression. This after 8 years of supply-side-on-steroids tax giveaways to the wealthiest in America.
In short, the same misguided thinking which brought us the mess we're now in.....is McCain's plan for the next 4 years. According to McSame, Bush just didn't give the rich and powerful enough government largesse. Some reality based folks would call this insanity....but that would be name-calling.....wouldn't it? And for sure, we don't want any namecalling in our election campaigning.....wouldn't be prudent.
The fact that McCain has flipped around more than a hooked mackeral about this economic stuff, that he doesn't know anything about......is of no interest to those who know what's important for voters to base their decisions upon....black preacher's rants and 40 year old street crimes......so we won't get to hear anything much about Mc-Know-Nothing-About-Economy-But-I'll-Flip-Flop-Cain.
Why would it be important for Americans to know that McSame will further cut domestic programs for, you know, common people, while running up militaristic deficits for the sake of his industrial complex buddies? Why would it be important for Americans to know McSame's intent on enriching the already filthy rich just a bit more? Nothing to see there...move along.
Corrupt and detestable doesn't even begin to descibe what we've been witnessing so far in the primary elections. Millionaires tell us nightly that 40 year old acts, guilt by association comments, race baiting exit polling and (Jesus) "electability" vapidity are the most pressing, important and vital topics for voters to base their decisions upon.
It could be that those f*cking millionaires would be able to hold on to those $91K per year tax breaks if McSame is elected or selected to the presidency. That could be why these Knee Pad Agents are pointing us back to the 60's instead of to the present. A bit of misdirection. It could be that these millionaire assholes have an obvious conflict of interest when it comes to "knowing" what's important to American non-millionaire voters. Could be.
Whatever the case.....Knee Pad Agents know with certainty that McSame's economic plans for 300 million Americans isn't in those Americans' interests. And that's why you won't be hearing much about any of it any time soon.
Only the professional, serious, and profoundly wise Servicers for McSame know what's really important....and all of it....reverend's and lapel pins and 40 year old insinuation-by-association stories....is all we're going to hear.
