This morning, I read an article concerning a Twitter battle between Rep. Steve Scalise and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Back and forth, these two representatives belted out their opinions on raising taxes to 80% on the wealthy.
Scalise was against raising taxes, whereas AOC was all for it. It got me thinking about the pointless nature of political debate. It is more along the lines of political theater. Actually, it reminds me of the Muppets’. These caricatures spout useless talking points and both claim they serve the greater good. No, they serve only themselves and their corporate masters. The Republicans are monsters who feed upon the corpses of undocumented immigrant children! The shrill cries fill the air. The Democrats are destroying the Constitution! They seek to annihilate your rights as private citizens! And they both want your vote to keep power.
It would not be so bad if their facade wasn’t so transparent. Sides are taken, lines are drawn, and the incoherent yammering begins. There is an old saying, it goes like this: What is good for the goose is good for the gander. Which means that everyone is equal. Unfortunately, that does not apply in the realm of politics. They create laws to govern the drones and then exempt themselves from said law. How many of us have ever had a job where we vote to give ourselves a raise? I have never had that privilege. Somehow, they manage to agree on the percentage of the pay raise that they give themselves. Perhaps, it is time for the private citizens are asked what they think of their representatives and how they perform their duties.
Incoherent yammering is part of the game. They talk in circles while never providing a straight answer on any issue. Why do we pay these idiots? Raising taxes to 80% is insane. What happens when the rich run out of money? Has no one in Washington ever read an Economics textbook? This current generation who were not alive during the Cold War and the gulags of the USSR think that money grows on trees. These good-looking, empty-headed thieves are now gaining power. How long before America is just another third world dump?
Well, I am going to call it a day. You guys take care, I will catch up with you all soon.
