In a recent FB post a writer blamed waste in Government spending on “Democratic Socialists…..
Democratic Socialists? you say that like its a bad thing. BTW it’s good to know if you lose your job you will decline unemployment checks and when you’re old , you will respectfully decline your Social Security. You’re probably against money to pay local Police, Fire and EMT’s. You probably will work over 40 hours without overtime and would love a job in a sweatshop . Damn Those Bleeding Hearts , Damn Them. Anything that Big has waste, Anything. Yes it’s broken , but you were probably all in on 5 Billion Dollars a week spend on the Afghan War when 19 of the 911 Hijackers were Saudi Nationals as well as Osama Bi Laden , and a member of a prominent Saudi family. Before you say it , I am proud to be a Social Democrat , yes one of them again. In case you don’t have a dictionary in your bookcase…. Social democracy is a political, social and economic ideology that supports economic and social interventions to promote social justice within the framework of a capitalist economy, as well as a policy regime involving a commitment to representative democracy, measures for income redistribution, and regulation of the economy in the general interest and welfare state provisions. Social democracy thus aims to create the conditions for capitalism to lead to greater democratic, egalitarian and solidaristic outcomes; and is often associated with the set of socioeconomic policies that became prominent in Northern and Western Europe—particularly the Nordic model in the Nordic countries—during the latter half of the 20th century. And while i’m on a Rant, Congress sets the spending and they have Oversight power, A congress that was controlled by Republican six years of President Obama’s presidency . A Congress that told President Obama that he could NOT launch Airstrikes in Syria. I’ll bet you are a Trump supporter , he did it on his own, notifying the Russians but not his parties Congress. Here’s a question for you, Where does an American soldier eat dinner in Afghanistan , behind a rock. Where does a drone pilot eat dinner, At Applebee’s with their Family
So its ok for Democrats to be the party of NO! Hey Chuck PICK YOUR BATTLES. I would rather see the Democratic leadership replaced. If Pelosi worked for you you would fire her. She has been unable to “move the ball” for six years , she’s gotta go! And Shumer, your old school, yesterdays politician , you gotta go TOO! The old guard has failed us. The Republicans get things done, albeit ACA. Democratic Congressman should focus on making deals, thats what I call politics. We don’t need to be the new Bully on the playground. The focus should be on the Midterm. We need new leadership. Gorsuch will replace Scalia, OK, tell me what Sotomayor and Kagan have done to change the world. And Trumps 2nd choice might be a Robert Bork.
They used to call it The Final Solution .
You demand that we stop giving money to people that don’t work?
Those pesky retirees, handicapped and under employed, and those pesky 1% that don’t pay soc sec tax on income over 85,000. And those beggars that make over 250,000 annually that are taxed at 35%. In Eisenhower day , you remember when America was GREAT. The average tax rate on incomes over 250,000 was 70 to 90 %. Yea back when banks did’nt steal from account holders and then paid millions of dollars in bonuses. Yeah those dopers on Welfare , the ones two states found were less than 1% of recipients. I think we would be better off if we withheld more money from rich people including healthcare ceo’s . They have more money than those despicable poor people , Why not let them eat CAKE!!!!!
