With the Pedo-in-Chief and his nursemaids and handlers having heavily tanked the whole of America’s economy, and with their response being to start looking into removing cash and enacting a federally controlled Digital Currency, I present to you the future of the American “Dollar” – Buttcoin.
ROFLMAO This so true, so true it hurts, mostly from my belly laughing. So true that it is denied and rejected by most people and almost all employers.
The reason you work, if you’re one of the vast majority of us, is to get paid. The reason an employer would hire you is so that they can get paid for the work you do. Everything else is bullshit used to screen and cull applicants or to convince people to accept a lower wage.
It’s Not Real Money Now, Is It?
Democrats in Congress – all of whom voted “Bah Humbug” on the tax cut bill which President Trump described as a Christmas gift to the American taxpayers – and various of their more strident constituencies have boldly stated that a $1000 – $2000 tax cut wasn’t real money to poor and middle-class American families.
The funny thing is that $1,000 a year, or about $40 a paycheck, was real money back in 2011 when Obama lambasted House Republicans for refusing to extend the payroll tax cut.
Ending the payroll tax cut will cost the typical family making $50,000 a year about $1,000 a year, which is a lot of money for struggling families. President Obama explained today:
Our failure to do this could have effects not just on families but on the economy as a whole. Itâ€™s not a game for the average family, who doesnâ€™t have an extra 1,000 bucks to lose. Itâ€™s not a game for somebody whoâ€™s out there looking for work right now, and might lose his house if unemployment insurance doesnâ€™t come through. Itâ€™s not a game for the millions of Americans who will take a hit when the entire economy grows more slowly because these proposals arenâ€™t extended.
That $1,000 a year works out to about $40 a paycheck that families wonâ€™t have to spend or save. Although opponents of the payroll tax cut might say $40 isn’t much, we know thatâ€™s not the case.
— Barack Obama
What Does $40 Mean to You?
It sure seems that $1000 – $2000 a year was really real money when Obama was President. Back then, it seemed to mean a whole lot to a lot of people in every state in our country. It’s just not real money now when it’s the GOP giving it back to the people, at least not in the minds of the Left and their politicians.
“Hillary-ian” or some more grammar-positive version thereof should be added to the lexicon as an adjective denoting unparallelled and/or unrivaled hypocrisy and chutzpah.
It’s My Turn! And I Am A Vagina!
At her first official campaign event, held at Kirkwood Community College in Monticello, ID, Clinton identified campaign finance reform as one of several pillars of her 2016 presidential campaign.
We need to fix our dysfunctional political system and get unaccountable money out of it once and for all — even if it takes a constitutional amendment.
— Hillary Clinton
She proclaimed this mere days after announcing her latest candidacy and stating that she was looking to raise as much as $2.5 billion to fund her latest bid to be POTUS.
To put that in perspective and context, in 2008 Obama spent $748 million vs McCain’s $352 million, and in 2012 Obama spent $722 million vs. Romney’s $450 million. Indeed, the totals expenditures by all candidates were approximately $1.68 billion and $1.33 billion respectively in the total course of the 2008 and 2012 election cycles.
So Hillary is looking to garner and spend in this election approximately 188% of the money that all the candidates together spent in the last presidential election.
But don’t worry! Hillary, once she’s had her turn, is committed to campaign finance reform and getting money out of politics.
