If you are easily insulted....QUIT READING.
After many days of reading hundred of posts here, most of what I read "flies in the face of logic". I have decided that 99% of the posters here need to extinguish their bongs....or....blow their snotty little conservative noses, and read the following.......
"Corporations hate poor people and love rich people".....your damn right they hate poor people. Corporations hate poor people so much....they wish that there were NO poor people in America. Poor people can't afford to by the corporations products.....so if it was up to the corporations.....everybody would be rich. (That was for you dumb-ass OWS people that think the corporations are trying to "hold down the poor")
"Corporations are hording money because they are evil".......NO....corporations are hording money because of the gyrating economic policies of the "over-schooled".... "under-educated" Harvard graduate that we currently have in office. First comes demand then comes investment and hiring. Otherwise, a corporation will run out of money.....go broke and ALL of the CURRENT employees will be jobless. What part of this simple logic makes your smoked-filled head spin out of control?
This next one is for the "goose-stepping" GOP supporters.
"Lowering taxes on corporations will boost the economy"....Oh Yea? How many tax dollars will that give back to General Electric? NOT A "F"ING DIME. They currently don't pay any taxes. I know what you are thinking (that's the easy part)......you think that if corporation had lower taxes...thus more money to invest...the corporations will invest it.....RIGHT?....WRONG...read the damn paragraph above on why corporations are hording money.
So....where do we go now? I will tell you. We permanently reduce the financial burdens currently placed on the middle class. Ie....electricity taxes....phone taxes....gas taxes.....income taxes....the list is ridiculous, long and expensive. We also lower the standards for qualifying for a refinance of their existing mortgages. This will give them more money to spend, and the ability to budget for the "long-term" (not some bull shit payroll holiday). We sit back and wait for the middle class to pay down some of their debts, and for their house and car to start breaking down so they will be forced to go out and spend money to repair them.
Get real people! Corporations are neither the "curse" nor the "cure". THE MIDDLE CLASS IS WHERE THE SOLUTION LIES.
