George Shrub's Deceptiveness
Yesterday, I watched in shock George W. Shrub's convoluted speech to the House of Reps. It was rather informing that this speech had not been in primetime however instead at 9 a.m. (6 a.m. in the West). I recognize a great deal concerning national politics considering that I create political thrillers (www.thetwentyfirstcentury.com) and I am regularly researching for my books as well as posts. However it doesn't take an author of politics, or perhaps one that does not follow national politics, to recognize that what George Shrub claimed yesterday made absolutely no sense. With all the (significant) problems he and the Republican celebration remain in, it is no surprise he has actually suddenly selected to talk (or trick) the American people concerning America's economics: November is coming.
Essentially, Shrub said that the state of our economic climate remains in good condition and also is getting more powerful everyday. Am I insane, or has George Shrub tripled the deficit given that he took office (and also doubled his income immediately after being sworn in)?
We now, for the first time in history, owe even more to international nations than they owe us (damaging our setting as the world's incredibly power as well as endangering our defenses).
The Iraqi Battle is mosting likely to cost near to a trillion bucks by the time it finishes and also we reconstruct what we destroyed over there, ruining our economic climate over here.
There is still the rebuilding of New Orleans as well as other cities, in addition to what disasters are can be found in the possible future.
Exactly how around the billions of bucks a day in passion our country is building up?
Shrub wants to invest a ton of money protecting our borders, not from terrorists, but from bad Mexican families who have no work as well as need to feed their families. The terrorists are can be found in from Canada as well as other cities, not from Mexico.
Rate of interest rise on a monthly basis, compeling Americans to pay even more on their charge card as well as their home mortgages and their university finances, etc. Because of that, real estate prices have begun to reduce due to the fact that individuals can not pay for a residence AND a huge rates of interest, besides increasing real estate tax annually, to pay for it. Isn't this elevating taxes by a different name.
George Bush still thinks, as well as plans to proceed the ludicrous tax discount (millions to the rich, a ration to the bad).
The price of buying gas is boosting the price of whatever we acquire, although the oil firms are taking pleasure in tremendous revenues (Exxon/Mobil made $340 BILLION in 2014). This residual impact has actually increased the prices on food, drug, clothes, everything. And it is not going to finish, as I view my filling station elevate their prices virtually daily. Just how much poorer can we obtain?
The American people have much less as well as less as well as George Bush states the state of our economy is good and is growing. It sure seems to me and also most Americans that it's our personal financial debt that is growing. How many individuals are better off today than they were 5 years ago? Not me, or anyone I understand.
It's all smoke and also mirrors.
