George Bush's Deception
Yesterday, I saw in disbelief George W. Shrub's intricate speech to your home of Reps. It was instead informing that this speech wasn't in primetime however instead at 9 a.m. (6 a.m. in the West). I recognize a lot concerning politics because I create political thrillers (www.thetwentyfirstcentury.com) and also I am regularly doing research for my books and also articles. However it does not take an author of politics, or even one who does not comply with national politics, to recognize that what George Shrub claimed yesterday made absolutely no feeling. With all the (significant) problems he as well as the Republican event are in, it is no wonder he has actually suddenly chosen to speak (or deceive) the American individuals about America's economics: November is coming.
Essentially, Bush claimed that the state of our economic climate is in good shape and is obtaining more powerful everyday. Am I insane, or has George Bush tripled the shortage considering that he took workplace (and doubled his salary quickly after being sworn in)?
We now, for the first time in history, owe even more to foreign countries than they owe us (deteriorating our position as the globe's super power and threatening our defenses).
The Iraqi Battle is mosting likely to set you back close to a trillion dollars by the time it ends and also we reconstruct what we destroyed over there, destroying our economic climate over below.
There is still the rebuilding of New Orleans and also various other cities, in addition to what catastrophes are can be found in the likely near future.
Exactly how about the billions of dollars a day in interest our nation is accruing?
Shrub wishes to invest a lot of money securing our boundaries, not from terrorists, however from bad Mexican families that have no jobs as well as need to feed their families. The terrorists are coming in from Canada as well as other cities, not from Mexico.
Interest rates climb on a monthly basis, requiring Americans to pay even more on their charge card as well as their home loans and also their college loans, etc. Due to that, housing rates have actually started to reduce since individuals can't afford a residence As Well As a substantial rate of interest, besides increasing real estate tax annually, to pay for it. Isn't this raising tax obligations by a various name.
George Bush still believes, as well as prepares to continue the ridiculous tax obligation discount (millions to the abundant, a pittance to the bad).
The rate of getting gas is raising the cost of every little thing we purchase, although the oil firms are appreciating remarkable profits (Exxon/Mobil gained $340 BILLION in 2015). This recurring impact has actually increased the rates on food, drug, clothing, every little thing. And it is not mosting likely to end, as I view my gasoline station raise their rates practically day-to-day. How much poorer can we get?
The American individuals have much less and less and also George Bush states the state of our economic situation is great and is expanding. It sure appears to me and a lot of Americans that it's our individual financial obligation that is growing. How many people are better off today than they were five years earlier? Not me, or anyone I understand.
It's all smoke as well as mirrors.
