George Bush's Deceptiveness
The other day, I enjoyed in disbelief George W. Bush's intricate speech to your home of Reps. It was rather telling that this speech wasn't in primetime however rather at 9 a.m. (6 a.m. in the West). I know a lot regarding national politics given that I compose political thrillers (www.thetwentyfirstcentury.com) as well as I am continuously researching for my publications and also articles. However it doesn't take an author of politics, and even one that doesn't comply with politics, to realize that what George Shrub claimed yesterday made absolutely no feeling. With all the (major) problems he as well as the Republican party are in, it is no wonder he has instantly chosen to speak (or deceive) the American people about America's economics: November is coming.
Fundamentally, Shrub stated that the state of our economy remains in good condition and also is getting stronger everyday. Am I crazy, or has George Shrub tripled the deficit since he took office (and increased his salary right away after being sworn in)?
We currently, for the very first time in background, owe even more to foreign nations than they owe us (weakening our position as the world's extremely power as well as jeopardizing our defenses).
The Iraqi War is going to set you back near a trillion bucks by the time it ends and we reconstruct what we destroyed there, damaging our economy over right here.
There is still the restoring of New Orleans and also various other cities, in addition to what catastrophes are coming in the likely future.
How around the billions of dollars a day in rate of interest our country is accumulating?
Shrub wants to invest a lot of money securing our borders, not from terrorists, but from poor Mexican households that have no tasks and also require to feed their families. The terrorists are being available in from Canada and various other cities, not from Mexico.
Rate of interest increase each month, forcing Americans to pay more on their bank card and also their home loans as well as their college loans, and so on. Due to that, housing rates have actually started to decrease due to the fact that people can't afford a house AND a huge interest rate, besides rising property taxes each year, to spend for it. Isn't this increasing taxes by a different name.
George Bush still believes, and plans to proceed the outrageous tax obligation discount (millions to the abundant, a pittance to the poor).
The price of purchasing gas is enhancing the price of every little thing we buy, although the oil companies are delighting in significant earnings (Exxon/Mobil earned $340 BILLION last year). This residual result has actually increased the rates on food, medicine, garments, everything. And it is not mosting likely to end, as I enjoy my filling station raise their rates practically day-to-day. How much poorer can we obtain?
The American people have much less and much less and George Shrub says the state of our economic situation is great and also is expanding. It sure seems to me and a lot of Americans that it's our personal financial debt that is growing. The number of people are better off today than they were 5 years ago? Not me, or any individual I know.
It's all smoke as well as mirrors.
