Another case where the media and politicians tell us a Horrible Situation Might Start To Happen If We Don't DO SOMETHING RIGHT AWAY!!!! ... while in fact the horrible situation has been running for a long time.
Tax on the rich? Oh No! Obama is waging Class War! Class War! Class War!
Well, yes. That's the correct term for what we have. But Obama's proposal wouldn't be the start
of the Class War, it would be a delicate dainty little micro-attempt to respond
to the Class War.
Rich fuckheads have been waging a violent and magnificently successful Class War against this country for 30 years. They have succeeded in wiping out the working class and decimating the middle class, using the Class Weapons of Free Trade, Diversity, "Climate Change", "Endangered Species", Crippling Regulations on Small Business, and Total Deregulation of Rich Speculators. Their final victory blast came in 2008, with Shotgun Paulson's Theft of the Entire Economy.
Obama has not fired a single return volley until now, and I doubt that he's serious about this one.
The CORRECT response to the 2008 blast is no mystery. The blast is not unprecedented, and the response is perfectly well-known. The South Sea Bubble was a similar crime, encouraged by similar deregulation. Chancellor Walpole
solved it by clamping down on all speculation, imprisoning and confiscating the speculators, and imprisoning the members of Parliament who had enabled the bubble.
Obama did none
of those things; he just continued paying trillions in blackmail to the speculators who had already stolen trillions.

Oops... didn't realize till later that I was more or less echoing Warren Buffett. I try to write only when I have something halfway original to say. Oh well. Original or not, it's still correct.
