McClueless needs to get one

One what, you say?  A clue, a brain, a room in an assisted living center, a ticket to a third world country…

I’ve heard John McCain, more than once over the past few days, opine that tax cuts for the rich should not be allowed to expire, at least until the recession is over.  Do you think McCain even knows what a recession is, or is it a word  he’s heard tossed around the political arena and the media so often that he thought he’d better use it before people realize what a moron he really is?  Too late, we’re onto you!

Since he is an extremely wealthy member of the GOP (Greedy Old Pricks) I seriously doubt he thinks (or even gives a crap) keeping these tax cuts will help ease the recession.  Could his suggestion be a tad self serving since he is so freaking rich he doesn’t even know how many homes he owns?

I’m not trying to paint all the super rich with the same brush because I have heard many people with lots of money say they have no problem paying their taxes knowing the government has to get its money somewhere.  Maybe McCain and his cronies think we, the working class, can have bake sales and car washes to pay down the deficit.  I don’t get the mentality of the McCains of the world, who have more money than they can spend in ten lifetimes, worrying about paying a fair amount of tax that would make absolutely no difference in their lives.

McStupid and others use the illogical argument that the rich need these tax cuts in order to to create jobs and stimulate the economy.  To paraphrase that TV quack psychologist, Dr. Phil, “How’s that workin’ so far?”  The tax cuts are about to expire and suddenly they need the money to create jobs they could have been creating over the past ten years…oh wait, silly me, they have created jobs, just not in this country.

As far as stimulating the economy, I doubt the recession has had any effect on the spending habits of the very rich, they have continued business as usual: conspicuous consumption and being completely out of touch with the common folk.  The problem is they are the only ones spending on anything that isn’t absolutely necessary like so many Americans these days.

Tax cuts or no tax cuts, the lives of the rich will go on as usual.  If the tax cuts (hopefully) expire they will just have one more thing to bitch about while dining with friends at the yacht club.
