I do realize that we the Democrats, have fallen into a collective malaise. Time to pick up and get out of the malaise. Stop resisting the tax cut to the rich and super rich, embrace it. You see, they will create jobs. So, get ready for the jobs. As I watch the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I learned a thing or two, I saw the jobs that they create.
The GOP and their populist front, the Tea Party, will be in charge. Poised to eliminate the Affordable Healthcare Act, extend the tax cuts to those making over $250,000 per year, erase the banking regulations, castrate the EPA, privatize public education and Social Security and create jobs I thought it was time we look at the jobs that will be created. They say, the American people have spoken. This imaginary monolith that changes from election to election, the American People’s Voice. By the way, the most populous state in the union, was not speaking the same words, but what the heck, the sparsely populated hinterlands spoke.
What did they say: extend the tax cuts to the rich and super rich. If we extend the tax cuts to the rich, they will have certitude (this is the new catch word, bear with me) , when the rich have certitude, (something that the rest of the country does not get cause we basically pulled the safety net away) they will create jobs.
You see, the new economic model is that government must provide a certainty to business, cover their losses and clean out all the obstacles along the path. DO YOU GET IT? Certitude, you get when you have gobs of money, if you are one pay check away from Armageddon , you get the school of zero tolerance and tough love. WTF, you with your Nanny state notions, wanting to be cared for by the society. Stop it, bear it and give the rich certitude, then they will give you serfdom.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, my current favorite, are the rich who will get the tax cuts. Let’s see how they spend the money:
- Jobs: Nannies (Camille has 4) , surrogate mothers ( you think they carry their babies), trainers, house managers, party organizers ( $50,000 for 4-year-old party) , animal handlers, assistants, fancy cake makers, Barbie Jewelery makers, body guards, giggolos, friends, boyfriends, chefs, caterers, cabana boys, plastic surgeons, spa workers, bartenders, stylists, decorators.
- Consumables: opportunities for Gucci, Hermes, Dolce Cabana, clothing with glitter, Mercedes, BMW (German cars), Italian shoes, vacations. Renting venues for events. Champagne, pinot grigio, tequila. Italian decorating fabrics. See, they buy stuff, not American stuff, but stuff. You get to work in the shops, you can be shop girls and boys.
What are you complaining about, the rich and super rich will create jobs for your college educated kids and those with twenty plus years of experience. They will buy stuff–not American stuff– but they will buy stuff. They will not hire an engineer, but a surrogate, or a lactation consultant they will hire.
What is the government gonna do with the money? Invest in infrastructure and create high paying jobs, but what kind of reality tv can you make with bridge building?
President Obama, please, give it up for the rich, give them the tax cuts. You see, they had the tax cuts all these years and they created so many jobs. We need the jobs the rich will create, this is part of our public policy: ” We have always relied on the kindness of strangers”. Who needs the nanny state?
