I wonder why trickle down economics never worked, but today, trickle up poverty is sweeping the country?

If 1 % of the people own wealth equal to 90 % of the rest of us, why do they need more wealth before they will create more jobs?

What industry gets 7,610 dollars a minute in tax breaks (that’s four billion of OUR tax dollars ) while making 35.5 billion more profit  in this quarter than last quarter?    (Hint: A three-letter word beginning with O and ending with L.)

Who was the first President to borrow from Social Security?  ( Hint:  He also started that trickle down theory and was once a movie star.)

Who said “I vote for the rich guys, they are the only ones that can pay me?”    My cousin Rose said that.   (I guess I have that  backwards. I always thought a business couldn’t run if people didn’t show up to work everyday)

What is the most expensive cost to taxpayers?   (President Eisenhower warned us against it)    (Hint:  Its not housing, education, health care, or welfare.  The next time you are asked to donate, ask your candidate of choice about the cost of the military/industrial complex.)

The Federal Communications Commission has the power to provide a free elections channel or two or even three, just like most industrialized nations.  Why don’t they?  Wouldn’t it save money?  (Duh!)

Why is it the  rich are incentivized by tax cuts, while the poor are incentivized by lower wages, no benefits, no health insurance and  minimum wage?

Shouldn’t all corporations have to pay SOME taxes?

Isn’t money the same as speech?

Corporations are the same as a person, aren’t they?  (My friend Domenic said he’d  believe it when they execute one.)

In a democracy, anyone in America (with enough money)  can run for public office, right?

I’m sure I got that last one right. But, in general,  I failed economics. Jim says I should get back on the road so I don’t get riled up about these matters.

Or maybe I should go into a business like this?  But how would I get the politicians into the truck?

  1. Excellent post but it all seems to be out of our hands at this point. I think you would enjoy this blog I know I do.

    LOVED the blog. Thanks for sending. Out of our hands? Not exactly but its a tough, long fight. The movement to get “corporations are people” reversed is gaining strength. The court seems to know they goofed up and is subtly welcoming a challenge. Check out Common Cause and Public Citizen. Thanks for stopping by.

    Money is like manure.
    Spread it around and it does a lot of good.
    Gather it up in huge piles and it does nothing but stink.

    I’m getting tired of the smell.

  4. Love the Bad Dog Trucking logo. Its got our US Government stench all over it. I’ve voted since I was eligible, but this time around, I almost feel “why friggin bother?” Ron Paul makes the mist sense, but he wont get enough votes to win. So …why bother?

    I have to say everyone I know is disenchanted, no, not disenchanted, angry is the better word, by government “stench”. Such an apt word. I keep hoping exposing the crap will help.
