Please feel free to copy, paste and pass the information along because without your help the people who created this mess have no incentive to fix it.
The following article was originally written in the 1990's The Parties (both the Democrats and the Republicans) have sold their souls and all it has cost is this country's financial well-being, your retirement, our kids' future and our kids' inheritance.
The Destruction of the Middle Class
Chicken shit refers to behavior that makes life worse than it need be: petty harassment of the weak by the strong; open scrimmage for power and authority and prestige… insistence on the letter rather than the spirit of the law. Chicken shit is so called –- instead of horse- or bull- or elephant shit -- because it is small minded and ignoble and takes the trivial, seriously.
Chicken shit people and organizations’ are easily recognized because of their greedy, self-centered and often-times manipulative actions.
“The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or be so dependent upon its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.” The Rothschild brothers of London writing to associates in New York, 1863.
What were they thinking
We have a serious problem and even as wealthy as this Nation is, this is getting expensive. We have $30,499,000,000,000 National Debt with interest payments this year to exceed $600,000,000,000 ($1.7 Billion per day).
This financial crises is brought to you courtesy of our wonderful two party system; Elephants and Asses. The Elephants implemented a policy in the 1980's called "Starve the Beast"; the thought was, the easiest way to get rid of programs was to create and expand the debt, make it so large that Government programs could be eliminated. This trap was set by the Elephants and the Asses walked right into it.
If you thought interest rate increases hurt when buying a house imagine life when this Nation is paying/wasting over $1 Trillion next year ($3 Billion each day) because Interest Rates have more than doubled recently.
Not learning from but repeating history is Insane yet we have allowed it to happen time and time again with the same catastrophic results; George Washington's farewell speech in 1798 addressed Political Parties and the damage they would inflict on this Nation because of Potentates, Despotism and the dangers of unchecked Debt.
Change will not happen without your help.
Hope is just a bad plan. As a Nation we need to wake-up. We have NO Debt repayment plan and Interest Rates are going up.
An attempt at solutions to fix some of our problems?
This next article, which will require about 15 minutes of your time explains in plain, simple, unembellished English the history of how we got into this financial mess.
“As a result of the war, corporations have now been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow... until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic is destroyed.” -Abraham Lincoln

Loophole manufactured, loophole exploited.
There are a large number of people who do not understand the correlation between debt and deficit, the definitions for those words have been included.
DEBT: how deep the hole is: the total amount of money that has been borrowed.
DEFICIT: how fast the hole is being dug: how much more the government has spent (like a credit card) during the year then the government has received.
Look at the national debt as if it were an ARM, (Adjustable Mortgage Rate) and we the people as the homeowner. When the Federal Reserve Bank raises the rates in the future our financial problems; because we are the homeowner with the ARM will become catastrophic because the interest paid on the debt will increase dramatically.
The National Debt (our collective credit card) is now $30.5 Trillion and has been left to the kids and grandkids because the bills didn't get paid.
I'm just kind of tired of the lies, misinformation and all around BS.
Did you know that from 1936 to 1981 the tax rate on the wealthy never dropped below 70% reaching a all time high of 94% in 1944 and 1945?
Any idea why?
Never get involved in war (WWII and the Korean War) if it can't be paid for. They did not leave the cost of war to be paid by their children and grandchildren.
After the death of President Kennedy the tax rates dropped to 77% and continued in the 70% to 77% range throughout the War in Vietnam and up until the start of the Reagan years where the Income Tax rates on the Wealthy dropped to 50% eventually reaching a low of 28% while the National Debt Increased over 180% during The Reagan Years. The first (1 year) Trillion Dollar deficit was in 2008 During the Bush Presidency, the first (1 year) $4 Trillion deficit happened during the Trump Presidency in 2020.
The common denominator for the Reagan, Bush and Trump Presidency spike in deficits and subsequence rise in the National Debt (National Credit Card usage) was Tax Cuts for the super wealthy by each of these individuals instead of paying the bills.
The National Debt (now $30.499 Trillion) has been left to the kids and grandkids simply because the bills didn't get paid.
For too many years now George Washington's farewell speech dealing with Potentates; Political Parties & Despotism; Knowledge, Virtue, Religion & Morality; Debt; and Outside (foreign) Influence; has been ignored, as has the admonition that Christ gave us to treat others as we wish to be treated.
As stated earlier, please copy, paste and pass the information along because without your involvement the people who created this insanity have no incentive to fix it

As a Nation we need to wake-up. We need to learn from instead of just repeating history, doing the same thing over and over again, well, Einstein labaled that as Insanity.
