Liberals perceive tax cuts as giving something to the rich. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Tax cuts allow the rich and poor alike to keep more of the money they earned rather than give it to nameless, faceless and largely unaccountable bureaucrats to distribute.
How many Americans are willing to look into the mirror and ask whether they should be on medication for being so gullible four years ago.
The real tragedies of life consume us in an inarticulate manner; at least, we feel that way, after feeling so stupid for walking into an obvious trap so blindly, to be hurt so crudely, by mindless acts so devoid of meaning, by people so utterly lacking in style, grace, and substance. Their vulgarity and credulity consumes us as if they are a brute force of overpowering barbarity; but in the final analysis, it is we who gave them this pretense of competent leadership by which they trapped us so securely. With dramatic effect we rage to express our indignation and outrage; sadly, the dry humor of this sad comedy mocks us; for we are the players or actors of this sublime tragic comedy and we have written our own script.
Harry Reid is still bringing up Romney’s taxes. Here he is a few days ago:
Senate Majority leader Harry Reid tells George Knapp of KLAS his “source” is a “long time friend, a very wealthy person he’s known for 30 years who’s had business dealings with Bain Capital.” He told him Romney “hasn’t paid taxes like you and I for 10 years.” He adds, “he can’t give us his tax returns because it would be the end of his campaign for sure”
The selection of Paul Ryan as Mitt Romney’s running mate sent a powerful message – that the economy will be the key issue of this election. As I go back and forth arguing with my lefty pals we naturally disagree over what ails our economy. Their arguments are that we’re not doing enough to tax the wealthy and put it in the hands of our government to spread the wealth around and get our economy moving again. I always point out things like our trillion dollar debt, looming entitlements collapse, ever increasing regulation, and continuous threats of higher taxes from an economically illiterate president that are hurting our economy.
The Tea Party is probably the example of existentialist Nihilism you are the most familiar with; If we analyze the essence of the Tea Party, beneath the casual conversation, the existential Nihilism is undeniable. Even though the basic conversation is meaningless; it captures the spirit of nothingness and of insanity in its purest form. The Tea party says No, to God and denies humanity to feel the power of self. The insanity is present, but it is ignored by those who participate. In a certain respect, the Tea Party becomes the purest expression of Existentialist Nihilism. For the Tea Party labels all values as worthless, therefore, nothing can be known or communicated and it associates itself with extreme pessimism and a radical skepticism that has no loyalties.
Yes, putting Obama’s head on a stake and using it in a movie or in decapitation scenes would warrant apoplectic Progressives and Liberals to grasp their crotch and jump up and down like small children waiting tin a long line to use the bathroom, but putting Bush’s head on a stake is an exercise in effigy conservation. Surely a cadre of FBI agents would descend on the light hearted pranksters who dared to use a facsimile of Obama’s head; since no less than ten agents were sent to Florida to investigate whether George Zimmerman displayed traces of racial bigotry while perforating targets at neighborhood ranges and buying weapons at gun stores. We all know, the slightest hint of racism or an ethnic joke would catapult the Martin tragedy into the realm of a hate crime and out of the realm of a normal Florida shooting.
Steven Spielberg, the man who had to redesign his stable because it was going to block his neighbors’ views of the ocean, is enough of an elitist to not let his neighbors ruin his grandiose plans; he just dozed the top of his little Sullivan Canyon hill top and built his stable where the top of the hill used to be. Elitists can work around the will of the people; it’s logical in their minds, they are the will of the people.
