CHICKEN AND EGG

We are all familiar with the Chicken and Egg dilemma. Lucky there remains a balance between the two and the poultry thrives.

What if the Chickens had a powerful spin machine: a White House of their own and a “rubber stamp” Congress to assist the propaganda? Those eggs would suffer! The chickens could enjoy their power, but gradually they would diminish and ultimately disappear.

In this modern day we have the greatest economy the world has ever seen. We working people very much appreciate our investors who create the business that gives us our jobs.

Our rich have contributed heavily and now have a White House and Congress they have bought. The rulers use their power and even our taxpayer money to hoodwink us into believing how well off we are under this new system which actually results extreme advantage to the rich at the cost to the middle class.

Tax cuts: How wonderful. So now you get $10 or $20 more on your paycheck. It pales compared to the hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars that the rich benefit. The cloak of deception: Money that the federal government could have spent on infrastructure, maintenance of infrastructure, and national programs that would be help the population in general has passed on to the rich. Essential programs have become the responsibility of the States. This heavy money circulation removed from the economy. The spin: the people will spend it. Yes, I’ll spend my $10 but the bulk of the tax breaks going to the rich, already have their needs fulfilled have no incentive to spend more. Worse yet: the States for the need to pick up services now increases taxes. Most of these taxes come from the middle class: Sales taxes, property taxes, gasoline taxes, auto registration, driver’s license fees, tuition etc. Deduct your $10 and you are still way in the hole! Clever!
