And what are you and I doin’….Not much you know…hangin’, chillin’ just tryin’ to get by you dig? Yeah, I dig homes and here is what I found….
‘On the same day that Britney was shaving her head, a guy I know who works in the office of Senator Bernie Sanders sent me an email. He was trying very hard to get news organizations interested in some research his office had done about George Bush’s proposed 2008 budget, which was unveiled two weeks ago and received relatively little press, mainly because of the controversy over the Iraq war resolution. All the same, the Bush budget is an amazing document. It would be hard to imagine a document that more clearly articulates the priorities of our current political elite.’
The ‘I’ in the sentence above is Matt Taibbi one of the best writers around covering what passes for our political scene. He goes on to say quite a bit about BushCo and what their real agenda is in this Alternet post. The following will give you a little taste…
‘Not only does it make many of Bush’s tax cuts permanent, but it envisions a complete repeal of the Estate Tax, which mainly affects only those who are in the top two-tenths of the top one percent of the richest people in this country.’
Well, maybe those rich folks need some relief from all the taxes the vile IslamoFascist Democrat Party have been hammerin’ them with. Well maybe, but then again maybe not….
‘Or how about this: if the Estate Tax goes, the heirs to the Mars candy corporation — some of the world’s evilest scumbags, incidentally, routinely ripped by human rights organizations for trafficking in child labor to work cocoa farms in places like Cote D’Ivoire — if the estate tax goes, those assholes will receive about $11.7 billion in tax breaks. That’s more than three times the amount Bush wants to cut from the VA budget ($3.4 billion) over the same time period.’
Oh well, I’m gonna be rich someday so I’ll get those tax breaks myself. Sorry homer, not only are you never, ever gonna get rich in Bush’s Amurkkka you are quite probably positioned to get the shaft.
Move along please, nothing to see here.
Oh…yeah, Anna Nicole Smith is still fukin’ dead.
