We’veĀ  posted before regarding the problem with compartmentalized thinking. This post makes such a fine example of the sickness and it’s symptoms. Check out the question about why you take till now to get mad.

You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy policy.

The Correlation Between Taxes and Wages

The Correlation Between Taxes and Wages
by

As you read in every blog and in ever newspaper, the middle class wages have gone down. In fact, there has never been such a stark disparity between the rich and the average American than we have today.

American wages are going down over the past 30 years.

What we need to ask ourselves is what has changed in the past 30 years. What?

Well, we’re paying less taxes. We’re the most un-unionized since the Great Depression.

What else has changed? Well, let’s see, corporations have gotten larger. All the major industries are controlled by a handful of monopolies.

Less money is spent on regulating industries. Pollution is increasing.

Does anyone suppose that these changes aren’t what is causing the problems? Really! Things are worse and these things have changed. It’s pretty obvious to realize things are worse because we’re letting these things happen.

The fix? Put taxes on the rich back up to 90%. Put more money into regulating greedy and poisonous industries, encourage more unions, provide more benefits for the average American, increase the power of our government to make a better life for We The People.

Or, we could just continue to shrink our government more and see if that fixes anything.

The Attack on America’s Workers

The Attack on America’s Workers

Can someone please explain?

The Republican Party has gone hog wild attacking the average American. They have a full frontal attack on federal employees, states employees, local employees, the Post Office employees, Union workers, people with pensions, people with health care. It seems it’s the Republican Party vs America.

Sure, they’re all for big businesses, monopolies, the oil industry, international corporations, but they’re against everything American.

So, why does anyone but the billionaires vote for the party of American destruction?

When America first introduced income tax, it was almost 90% tax on the wealthiest 1% of Americans. Why? Because, like America’s founding fathers, the Republican Party and the Democratic Party knew it was bad for America to have aristocracies.

Today’s Republican Party is against America and for the aristocracies. My how times have changed.

When will the real Republicans take back their party?
