American Capitalism is a game rigged by Swindlers and Thieves. Similar to the landed gentry and Peers of the Middle Ages, they claim infalliability for their station in life with titles, like "Job Creators" and they’ve spent decades creating Repositories of Conservative Bullshit, euphemistically called think tanks, which produce terabytes full of justifications for the Order of the World. Here's what the Heritage Foundation proclaimed would happen if the Bush tax cut legislation were to pass, it would:
1) Effectively pay off the federal debt;Not one of their predictions came true, but then the Bush Tax Cuts weren't about helping the American people but about stealing Trillions in wealth.
2) Reduce the federal surplus by $1.4 trillion;
3) Substantially increase family income;
4) Save the entire Social Security surplus;
5) Increase personal savings;
6) Create more job opportunities.
Plus, the Plutocracy has it's church, run by politicians and corporately controlled media, which give daily sermons to the serfs and lavishes praise on their Masters.
At a recent fundraising event hosted by the odious Koch Brothers and attended by Billionaires and Millionaires, Chris Chrisite assured the Plutocrats that they are the Lords of Creation.
"Please, if you leave with just one message from me, if only one message sticks: This is a huge moment of crisis and opportunity for our country. All of you are the people who are going to lead us back to American greatness. If you care enough to do it."Chrisite also assured the Plutocracy that help from the Government to the Middle and Working Classes was at an end,
"Now, pain will be inflicted when we change that. People are going to do with less. People who are used to having entitlement at a certain level will not have them at that level anymore. That's the story." Christie cited Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan's "courageous" and "thoughtful plan" to "fix those systems" by replacing Medicare with a voucher program.That pain you feel? Well, that's the Republicans whipping you in the fields while your Lords work you to death.
