Trickle Down: Or Some rich guy gives you a golden shower, whilst telling you it is raining.

Back in the early 1980's we were all introduced to a “new” economic policy called Trickle Down Economics. It has since been referred to as Reaganomics, Trickle Down, Voodoo Economics, and in some very limited circles... “Oh great, the wealthy people are getting another round of tax cuts.” But like so many things, many people don't really understand the full scope of it. Just as Clinton and Obama grew one aspect of the economy, they fail to realize that policies that create jobs is only a portion of the economy.

What Happened? The Review

Alright, so finally after a while, my reserved copy of Hillary Clinton's book came in, and I started reading it. This doesn't happen often, and might be a result of blood pressure medication, but I am trying to sort out my thoughts about what I have read thus far, and I am not having much luck with it. Maybe the outrage about every little thing that happened in the primaries is too fresh, maybe the anxiety of how big of a mess we are actually in is clouding how I feel. Maybe its just that I can't get over the commentary of the Clinton supports, that continues to this very day, hasn't come to a head, and its not truly ready to be excised from my mind. One thing I know for certain, the wounds that were inflicted in the primaries, and the aftermath of this freak show aren't healing, and that will take time. Time we simply do not have.

State of Affairs October 2017

Okay home from the hospital, well I've been home since Sunday. The better parts of stress and anxiety finally got the better half of me. My blood pressure was extraordinarily high, and I am lucky enough to have escaped without permanent damage, well I think so anyway. So, after Los Vegas, hurricanes of epic proportions, and what appears to be a country flying apart at the seems, nothing is getting done, we are more worried about NFL players taking a knee (oh the humanity), we are worried about people calling the president a moron, one who should be impeached, and my god, where to start?

Tax Reform and You, Circa 2017.

The grand experiment of trickle down economics continues unabated, so what does this mean for you, more of the same....

Poor Behavior

So, as the NFL Player Protest Backlash continues, Dale Earnhardt Jr speaks contrary to Richard Childress and Richard Petty, and fans in various places are posting videos of them burning their team's (driver's) swag, while whining on Facebook about how they are “no longer fans”.  Yeah, I guess I get it, you don't want politics infringing on your sports, forget that 70% of people ignore politics (until the elections and things aren't going right).

The NFL, Politics and You


So, I am sitting here, after watching my vaunted Steelers choke in the overtime period of their game against the Bears, of which I have several thoughts. First, and most important in my mind is to say a hearty “Well played, and congratulations on the win.” to the Bears players (as if they would ever read this), and too their fans, “Your team showed up to play, and got the job done.” I like to get that out of the way, because good sportsmanship comes with being a gracious winner, and while I personally don't like seeing my teams loose, it comes with being a big enough person to congratulate the winners, even if we don't like it. Now, I am about to do something I really don't like doing, the game is over, we fought the good fight and we lost, but the season is still young, and I observed something that has really bothered me.

Its the End of the World. Again

So, I missed the notice about the end of the world again. So, tomorrow is Destruction Day. Seriously people, you need to give me a months notice about the end of the world, so I can enact a solid business plan because once all the good goyim are gone, there's going to be a whole lotta work opened up. So, in my mind lets list the top ways to go... In terms of how I want it to play out, or how funny it would be.

Contracted

So, movie review time. I had been doing this on Facebook, and I might well post a version of this there, because I am a member of an awesome horror movie group, its not as active as it once was, but when the place is active it is second to none. So, for your consideration, a movie called “Contracted”.

Where are they?

I constantly here that “Progressives” only come out of the woodwork during the presidential elections. That isn't true, we just don't get the air time that mainstream politicians get. We spend our non-presidential years slugging away in the local and state races, swaying the minds of the voters to see our causes, and to support those same causes. Then every presidential election cycle we become more vocal at the national level, because we understand that the president or nominee of the party is the voice of the party, they lead the party.

You know..

There was a time when I would actually partially agree that some ideas should be given time, to be shown the light of day. At the time I felt, in some instances that healthy discussion about concepts were a great idea. Now, now I am not such a fan of giving some ideals time to see the light of day.
