A few years ago, I embarked on a discussion with a guy who denied the existence of class warfare. There is no such thing, he said. He said that was just some make believe excuse for losers like me who couldn't penetrate the glass ceiling.
I am not sure what's worse. Being called a racist or a loser- but I lean heavily toward the latter.
We've all seen the charts and tables. The top 10% pay 90% of the taxes or some shit like that. Big deal. You see the reality of that is simple. The rest of us don't have any fucking money to pay anything.
Of all the reasons I hate the Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama era is that all of these pricks were elite. And they made damn sure they took care of their elite friends. You think that immigration thing was a fluke, don't you? Ignoring immigration was just importing cheap labor. That was done on purpose. Immigration budgets were slashed, long before we had a budget crisis. Ya' can't enforce immigration laws without personnel. Servants for the rich. Enlarged margins. Cash payments for salary.
The reason we don't talk about class warfare is simple. The folks that benefited the most, the elite and their wannabe pals, are the ones that are telling you class warfare is a fairy tale. You believe that shit if you want. The facts state otherwise. You are watching the politicians squirm now and they will run this fucking country into the ground before they piss off their masters. Thus Obama caved on letting those tax cuts expire. You can't get re-elected if you piss off the elite check writers. Of course, nobody said it better than Carlin.
