Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket! On a glorious start to the day here on Cape, with temperatures still hovering under 100 degrees, I am grateful that we are all still here…if you catch my drift. It is always good to hear one of my friends from the “Heritage Foundation,” speak to the ills of the Bush tax cuts of 2001 and 2003, for he, Curtis Dubay, relayed what we all know to be true, that the p.o.h.n. is a lying, cheating group of individuals, bought and paid for by special interests, whose only goal is to continue a philosophy that was put on steroids by Cheney/Bush in the 00’s, pushing our cart off a cliff and asking to do that once again. Ed Shultz, of the “Ed Show”, airing every week night at 6 p.m., EST, on MSNBC, had on his show yesterday the former Clinton advisor, Bob Shrum, a democratic strategist and professor at New York University, who spoke volumes to the question that is now a hot button for politicians throughout this torn nation of ours–whether or not we should extend the Bush tax cuts and whether or not those unpaid for tax cuts will lead to a worsening of our economy. A rather silly premise, but one we should never count the p.o.h.n. out of, for they, their policies and their product IS silly, surreal and suspect at best. Shrum, “Listening to Curtis, you’re gotta think, if you were a republican, you shouldn’t be talking about job destruction, outside of a confessional, because they have SET a record at it… We KNOW what the Bush tax cuts did and didn’t do, we know that for 2.5 years after it passed there was NO new job creation. We KNOW that there were a total of 3 million jobs created during ALL of the Bush years, compared to 23 million jobs created under President Bill Clinton, we KNOW that the congressional budget office says that out of the 11 possible things that we can do to help the economy, extending the Bush tax cuts for the people at the top 2 percent, is dead last. It is as one fifth as effective as passing, (passed), unemployment benefit compensation, or investing in the crumbling infrastructure. This is not about economic policy. This is about a right wing ideology of comforting the comfortable, and coming up with any excuse possible to pass a tax cut. You can’t stand there and say “deficit”, “deficit”, “deficit” (Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!), all the time and then suddenly say I want to pass a policy that will add 1 trillion dollars to the national deficit. In ten years that total, for all of the Bush tax cuts, that total will be 4.4 trillion dollars! President Obama and the democrats need to have the guts to go out there and make their case to just say, we are for the middle class tax cuts, and we are not for giving huge tax breaks for people at the top, because if we give those huge tax breaks to people at the top, not only are we waging an unfair economic policy, we are NOT going to help our economy, and WE have to help this economy.” As we watch bp drag it’s heals in paying ANY claims, as evidenced by countless poor people in the Gulf who would also like to “get their life back”, complaining that bp, from the beginning, with it’s shiny ads designed to fool the American public at large, has cried “red tape”… for their lack of compassion and currency when dealing with the people that they have hurt so deeply with their environmental crime of the century. Let us get real, p.o.h.n., be a man about it, and just come out and tell the world what and who you really are–a bunch of greedy puppets on a string, with no vision, no intelligence, no GOD, and no soul. GOD’S SPEED to the GULF, all of the people, SEA TURTLES, DOLPHINS, WHALES, BROWN PELICANS and marsh lands therein… may the bastards at bp pay your claims! Have a wonderful day everybody! Peace~M
