So you’ve been asking yourself ‘What will be the next big premise that the GOP Establishment will accept when it is proffered by the Socialist Progressive plotters and schemers?’ Amnesty is certain to be abandoned , unless there is a terrible, terrible miscalculation by the Congressional leadership. But the Boehners and the McConnells of the world (and I use “world” advisedly) have indicated they will work with/compromise/get things done/find solutions – all the usual platitudes and sops. So what issue has already been out there simmering, filtering quietly into the conversation, promoted first during Occupy Wall Street and then picked up by the Social Democrats in congress and on the fringes and now rearing it’s ugly head here as well as at Forbes, Fox News, all over the internet and soon in a theater near you?
INCOME INEQUALITY. That’s what. THE ‘WEALTH GAP’.
“Here’s how bad it is: Oxfam now calculates that the 85 richest billionaires on the planet, including the likes of Carlos Slim, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, have as much money as the 3.5 billion poorest people.
And for all the talk about the urgent need to address income inequality, the mega-rich just keep on getting richer.”
Granted, the article in question was written by an Occupyesque skull full of coarse, juvenile rage, containing phrases such as”grotesquely rich” and a ‘$95,000 white truffle that looks like a turd’, but aside from that the message is being spread far and wide – “Here you go, Republicans. Start giving out with some quips about “things we might find agreement on……..”
There are only 310 million people in the U.S. Not 3.5 billion. That Carlos Slim (well at least they threw a Mexican in there with Gates and Buffet) uses thousand-dollar-bills as toilet paper while the little Bangladeshi kid eats fried rat has jack to do with either compassion or returning the USA its former status as a freedom-loving, free enterprise-accommodating land of opportunity for not only its citizens, but for world markets and thus yes, in sum, for the world at large.
Plus, anybody with half a brain knows that isolationism or globalism, US tax or ‘Global Tax’, the lot of those who work for a living, and not that of the ‘billionaires’ is what will suffer if the Globalists hold sway or the Isolationists return us to a pre-colonial unenlightened self-interest. Can’t we just have ‘America’ back?
At a time when wiser wits are calling for the introduction of measures which would encourage the wealth holders to bring their wealth back onshore, if the R’s accept the premise once more and “reach across the aisle”, we will resume the ‘two steps forward’ cadence toward the oh-so-glorious New World, One World Order.
Keep your ears peeled.
