McClatchy News heads with the headline, GOP: No more help for jobless, but rich must keep tax cuts. What more can be said? You know it, I know it, but those who have taken the GOP hostage are betting that the dumbed-down American won’t.
Take the recent comment from “Jane” who lives in Kansas. In one of her anti-Obama rants recently, she lamented the ‘upcoming tax increases on the American people.’ Jane is perfect fodder for the right-wing bull shit. And there are millions more like her- minds vegetating, bodies inflating.
Jane tells us that she works in a nursing home, but she is very worried about these new taxes. What Jane doesn’t know is that these ‘new taxes’ are simply the old taxes that the owner of the nursing home used to pay before George W. cane into office. Jane’s Federal taxes actually went down in the 18 months that Obama has been in the White House.
Today’s GOP is betting that code propaganda words will help them retake Congress this Fall. And history tells us that propaganda works well, especially with the dumbed-down masses.
