one honest thought
Hillary Clinton is almost... ALMOST... as facile a liar as her HINO (Husband In Name Only). But even a congenital liar trips up and speaks the truth every now and then.
"Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may have helped you. We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give it to you," she said at a fund-raiser for radical Sen. Barbara Boxer.
Yeah, it takes a village to rob you blind.
Am I really standing alone in right field and shouting at empty bleachers when I say that YOU BETTER WATCH OUT FOR PEOPLE LIKE THAT? The sheer arrogance is enough to make me want to upchuck. YOU'RE going to take things away from ME for the "common good?" Where the fuck does it say in the Constitution that YOU have the right to do that to ME? Who died and made "common good" rise and set in the crack of YOUR wide ass?
I've got a better idea. If you go away and leave me alone, I promise NEVER, EVER to ask you for a Got-dam favor. I don't want government to help me with ANYTHING, and I'll be more than happy to let you do good elsewhere as long as you don't inflict that shit on me. What??? I can't do that because I have money? And you want it? For the "common good?"
I've got your common good right here.
The e-rate tax is aimed at providing schools and libraries with Internet access. The program, championed by Al Gore when he was vice president, was supposed to help schools allow low-income students to close the "digital divide" and gain new social and economic opportunities. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) began raising questions about it during a hearing on the program six years ago. Since then, its problems have become more apparent. The e-rate fund has distributed $12 billion over six years, and estimates place the amount wasted in the billions. Because of lack of oversight, it's impossible to know the extent of the losses.(emphasis mine, to prove a point.)
Hillary, why don't "rich" people just take all of their excess money, rake it into piles in their back yards and set it on fire? It'll do about as much good as sending it to the government to spend and the backyard fires will do a more efficient job of consuming the money. Then, the rich won't be rich anymore and YOU can go to bed happy at night, being rich yourself.
Bite me, bitch.
