    Robert Reich: The Republican Strategy



    "The Republican strategy is to split the vast middle and working class -- pitting unionized workers against non-unionized, public-sector workers against non-public, older workers within sight of Medicare and Social Security against younger workers who don't believe these programs will be there for them, and the poor against the working middle class.

    By splitting working America along these lines, Republicans want Americans to believe that we can no longer afford to do what we need to do as a nation. They hope to deflect attention from the increasing share of total income and wealth going to the richest 1 percent while the jobs and wages of everyone else languish."


    Thats right fucktards, that is your strategy, but we've been on to your bullshit. Divide American and split the cash with rich at the top, you're all pieces of shit.


    Public employees are not and have never been the fault for state budget fuck ups, you want to know the real reason? You fucked up, shitty Repugs doing dirty deals with private companies cutting taxes and draining the state of much needed money.

    Speaking of Elvis...

    During his last days the richest 1% of Americans "earned" less than 10% of total US income.

    Today the top one percent takes in over 20%.

    Can you figure that out?

    Like most things that contribute to class warfare, it means vitually nothing.

    By the by, do you realize that while you are charging that the Republicans are engaging in Class Warfare, you are engaging in Class Warfare?

    Is it possible that you don't even know what you are doing?

    Oh, how fun! The mouthpiece of the left using class warfare as an accusation at others when they're the ones to use class warfare. I'm impressed that Fail&Won'tGo remains stuck on stupid.

    Anything's possible

    However, I was working minimum wage jobs during the decade Elvis died. A single such job at that time paid the rent on a new one bedroom apartment each month with enough left over to maintain a 6 year-old Chevy.

    The reason that is economically impossible today is explained by the gains made by the richest 1% of the population over the last four decades.

    btw, it will only get worse for 90% of workers if they continue "choosing" between Republican OR Democrat.

    Are you actually confused about which one percent of US workers have increased their share of national wealth during the last two years?

    US class war begins when 90% of American workers discover the answer to that question.

    Which side will you choose?

    Stuck on Greed??

    Flaylo is right, of course.

    My only complaint about his POV is that Reich fails to note that the DEMS are no less in on the scam.

    In fact, he goes out of his way to suggest that the DEMS are not part of the game

    Hell, that isn't hard to explain, Richie...their plan is to say all the right things while DOING all the wrongs one, a la Obama


    1. Credit card reform that reforms essentially nothing that matters to CC consumers

    2. Health care reform that actually works to benefit HC insurance companies, and does virtually nothing to keep the rising cost of HC down

    3. Still even more FREE TRADE nonsense with Korea

    4. Continuation of the Central Asian wars

    5. REnewing the PATRIOT ACT

    6. GITMO still open

    7.Pissing away the stimulus on pork, the banksters, and load of hairbrained schemes while NOT creating WPA type jobs that actually might help.

    8. Pretending that inflation isn't happening so you don't have to cover COLAs

    Flaylo, you're about HALF WAY to real political enlightenment.

    I'm rootin for ya' to see through the REST OF THE SHAMOCRACY, soon.

    The dimocratic strategy is to divide the country via a class war.

    There really is no difference in the end result just the means by which politicians will lead you sheep to slaughter.
