NOW WOULD BE THE TIME …
At this point, after observing the hugely stagey, chewing up the scenery, kitschy drama in Washington D.C. -and our own overdressed and under educated state capital-we should be able to separate gold from garbage.
It’s been entertaining guys but really the hook is out and it’s time to get the hell off stage, away from the microphone, and back into your “make believe we’re old money”, leather clogged Albany offices. Also get your asses in gear.
Obviously the feds can print money , inflating the dollar and screwing our creditors (no the Greeks can’t do that with the euro which isn’t their own currency); or the feds can get some of the money back from the Ponzi schemers who screwed the country and got bonuses instead of jail time for their sins.
…and just as obviously it is way more ethical and practical to do the latter; but they didn’t.
Boredom has set in and I no longer want to hear a load of codswallop about how the government’s budget is just exactly like your little household budget.
When was the last time you adjusted interest rates and printed some of the ready cash as the feds can do? Or, closer to home in Albany, gave your favorite buddies a 19 billion dollar state tax break with someone else’s money expecting some of that lolly back in gifts for when you decided to run for –what? The school board!?
Since the feds and state are cutting funding for vital services, property taxes will inevitably rise- (oh yeah the celebrated snake oil tax levy cap- that’ll help you like a paper vest against a .38)– and did I say that the feds decided NOT to get back some of the excess loot from the mega rich?
So it’s time –and a golden opportunity- for Albany to stop dicking around and recoup in taxes from the BIG Boys what the corporations took from public funds and then stashed overseas.
Since the Too Big to Fail cartels are employing slave labor overseas and won’t boost employment here, Cuomo et al need to get that money and get it quick…no more confabulating (okay BIG LIES) .
Albany’s hot air about the Big Dogs creating jobs in NYS is a fairytale spread by the kissers of campaign donors’ rings -what did you think they kissed? Okay that too.
The corporate lobbyists-armed with faux data from the rich people’s think tanks- are still creeping and crawling around in opulent Albany-scarfing up more billions in make believe “job creating” money (Panama anyone?).
…and they have the kind of access to the “three men in a room” that you and I can only dream about. Their mojo is to create bogus committees like the CSNY to finance their agenda and make the obligatory money drop at the politicos’ offices.
The scam is getting old, Albany. Pass the millionaire’s tax already! Use a chunk to reduce property taxes.
The media is picking up on your intellectual dishonesty and moral bankruptcy…and we’re going to help them see what you’re really up to-widening the enormous wealth gap and destroying the middle class- for your own “advancement” and profit.
