|"How dare he go after corporate jets and not planned parenthood...terrible president."|
The modern Republican mind never ceases to amaze me. I attempt (oh c'mon you don't even try!) to be somewhat of a moderate, but I find it to be harder and harder not to appear Liberal when the only Conservative views I see are purely idiotic. Trust me I'm not one of those left wing bloggers who purposely go out and look for Right-Wing absurdity. Fact is, there's just an abundance of Conservative lunacy and it's easy to find. I'm not a fan of the President (nor did I vote for him) but, seriously? Eliminating a tax break that only the richest of the rich get and that would cut $3 billion from the national debt is a bad thing? Excuse my French but, what fucking planet are you on?
The less I say about The National Journal and Ron Fournier the better. Let's just say- I read multiple things from him, and it's all just a bunch of neoconservative fear mongering bullshit. But I respect him in that way I respect Neil Cavuto (And That's giving his work more credit than it deserves.) Now I realize that in the grand scheme of things, 3 billion dollars isn't much to fight over when it comes to deficit talks. But to say it's class warfare to kill off a perk that at least 311,650,780 people don't have and mostly likely will never have, is insanely dishonest. It isn't class warfare, it's shared sacrifice (even though it's not even that big of a sacrifice for one side.)We're cutting things that will build a better 21st century America, while we watch jerk offs play fight over nonsense benefits that will send our nation back to the stone age.
I remember walking out to the parking lot of my local Walmart in the late Spring of 2010. Walking pass the rows of cars I noticed a bumper sticker that read "Liberalism is a disease", well if wanting your country to progress from continued prosperity for a limited few to mass prosperity for the majority of the population makes me a Liberal, I'm proud to be infected. Look there's nothing wrong with being Conservative, but there's a lot wrong with being a right wing lunatic who thinks ending a tax break on the elite is a bad thing while denying the youth (the real future job creators) a chance to get the tools to rebuild the country is good. Nazi propaganda at it's finest, and that's proof it works.
