This article is going to be contentious to some. Good !!!! Articles should offer points to think about and debate, not just make you feel good about who you vote for !!!
I received a message, through the company email, it seems the CEO feels it is his right to say that the wealthy want everything their way in order to invest in America. Yet he says, that without the efforts of we employees, the companies would not have survived the economic grief of the last four years. Well how about rewarding us for our efforts instead of slapping us with your greedy hands ??
I wish to thank him for realizing that it is the empolyees who have suffered as well, and as prices have gone up our wages have gone down, yet companies are raking in the profits. Taxes are lower than they have been in decades, and the health care insurance offered by most companies now is a joke !!!
We were told by our managers that the company wanted more for less. More work, for less pay. We didn't receive raises, our health care costs went up, we weren't allowed overtime, we were expected to do more in less time. Our reward for suffering under the bull crap !!! The blame for the greed of the GOP/TP'ers is being placed on president Obama and the Democrats !!
Funny how before president Obama was elected the company laid off 2/3's of our labor force on the floor so they could continue to profit well, while the employees took it in the shorts. Our dollars bought less as prices increased through the chicanery of the companies giving us less product for the same price and saying they were losing money !!! We the employees are the ones losing under their lies !!!
The president is not to blame for the policies and failures of the Bush years that have caused such a tremendous sink hole in the economic well being of our nation. Where were the nay sayers when Bush was getting us into two unfunded wars as well as not stopping the rising prices of homes through the lies of false valuation. You say how could Bush have done something ?? Hmmm he had the house and senate until 2006, the avarice was rife, and the evidence was clear, but Bush was more woried about the false flag of terrorism from abroad than the financial terrorism being waged at home. What better cover than to keep Americans in fear as they stripped our financial checks and balances and allowed wall street and predatory capitalism to destroy our markets and home valuations. The taxes they brought in through the false valuations only increased the government spending, they were not used to lower the debt.
They were no where to be seen as they loved the fast profits and loose financial dealings that made some very wealthy, while destroying the base of our economy, and eventually causing the downfall of the worlds economy as the toxic loans were spread throughout the world as a pyramid scheme making sure those at the top scammed their money while the suckers at the bottom lost theirs !!!
Now they want us to believe it was the Democrats who put this all in motion and that it didn't happen under thje GOP/neo con/TP insanity called modern conservatism, or as I call it the love of mammon.
Yet this CEO, says we should put Romney and the Republicans in office, if we want to make sure we survive.
Now I respect his right to say this, what I don't like is his inferring that if the Democrats win we may be out of a job !!! That is pure and simple political terrorism from the ones with the money !!! Quite honestly I will not vote for a single Republican this time around, even though I voted for two republicans in the last 2010 election !!! The Republicans have shown me over and over that it is about their gain by our pain that they want.
What conservatives seem unable to understand is that without the workers they are screwed !!! Economics 101, it doesn't matter if you can produce a widget for $.50 a piece and sell them for a dollar a piece, if most of the people don't make enough to buy the widget they will not buy it !!!
You can't build your own wealth on other peoples poverty, because their poverty will eventually cause the loss of some of your wealth, if not all of it. Look at the last 32 years of the Reaganomics bull spew. We have lost our standing as being the strongest financially based nation and have become a nation of tax dodgers, who cry that their risk entitles them to more gain while imposing pain on everyone else for that gain !!! I can't believe the level of low thought and dull minded greed that is allowed to be seen as business acumen
If I make $17.00 an hour and the average price of a home is $150,000.00 and the cost of everything else is out of proportion based on the cost of the necessities of life. Why would they think I'd vote for a guy who thinks I don't matter, why would they think that their profit is more important to me than my being able to live a decent life ?? Add in health care costs that can take away all you have worked for as well as all you'd ever have in the future and I think the GOP/TP'ers are really lost in the thoughts that only the wealthy matter !!!
I've had enough of the ways of the GOP/TP'ers. Their ways are always to try and feed us with crumbs, while they lavish themselves with the bounty of our sweat and hard work !!!
We need more checks and balances from Washington not less !!! We don't need a government to tell us who we can marry. We need a government that tells the corporations they can't poison our planet for the corporations gain.
We don't need a government to tell us what sized soft drinks we can have, nor do we need a government that stops the oversight of our food production, we need to examine the introduction of chemically enhanced crops and of live stock as a way for the corporations to enhance their profit margins without knowing the long term health care ramifications on the human race.
We need a government that oversees the business of America and doesn't allow foreign competition to have an unfair edge based upon the allowance of slave labor and pollution not being calculated into the cost of products being brought into America for sale. We want American companies but allow cheap stuff that American companies aren't able to produce cost effectively based upon our laws. Tariffs for equal and free fair trade need to be enforced in order for American companies to have a level playing field here and abroad.
We Americans want to work, it was placed into us by our parents and grandparents. But we want to profit from our labors as well, we don't mind someone else making a profit, that is part of life. But if only the wealthy profit and the poor and middle class suffer for the wealthy's profit, that is not freedom for all. That is endentured servitude hidden as capitalism !!!
So if the wealthy don't want to invest in the kind of America of the past, instead of the present. Take a hike, we'll attract more people who love freedom, and you'll be subject to the whims of the leaders of other nations whose main concern is to break America and Democracy so they can return to their fuedalism !!!
The promises of the GOP/TP are just bounced checks which they have no intention of honoring. They lie for their gain.
Look at Romney, look at GW Bush, look at GH Bush-read my lips, no more taxes- look at Reagan, deficts don't matter if the GOP/TP'ers are the ones running them up as well as cutting taxes for the wealthy.
These people think we are their slaves, and they can control us through their wealth !!! I'm saying they are not my master and I don't want my kids and grandkids to have to suffer for the wealthies gain !!!
Vote the way you will. Just remember that the wealthy really don't care about us, they care about their profits. They are not the ones having to worry about putting a roof over your families head, or food in their stomachs, they are not the ones having to worry about whether you can afford a car, or gas to get to work, or paying for your childrens education, or health care, ... Nope, they have enough to not have to worry about those things. They want it all and could care less if you have enough !!!
If that is how you want it. Vote for Romney and you will get that type of life.
