When I wuz a kid, anytime I'd get caught lying, my backsides would get a good blistering. And if I lied about telling a lie, double OUCH.
It didn't take too many of those sessions before I realized there wasn't a future in lying to my parents.
So it's a bit confusing to me to see on the Zionist MSM professional liars, many of them the same actors, appearing on multiple media outlets, telling numerous lies about how to control the deficit.
Some of these shitheads have been telling variation of the same lie since the Reagan years when they said the best way to stimulate the economy was to reduce taxes on the rich and super rich.
They would take the money saved and invest it in our economy, in what they termed the 'trickle-down' effect, which would create jobs and help the economy grow.
"Trickle-down economics" and "the trickle-down theory" are pejorative terms that refer to the policy of providing across the board tax cuts or benefits to businesses, such as tax breaks, in the belief that this will indirectly benefit the broad population. The term has been attributed to humorist Will Rogers, who said during the Great Depression that "money was all appropriated for the top in hopes that it would trickle down to the needy."It didn't take long after the wealthy elite got their taxes reduced to find out that the trickle-down effect was more like a 'tinkle-down' effect, with the average American losing decent paying jobs that got shipped first to Mexico, then China when the rich took some of that loot and bribed Congress to give them even more tax breaks if they'd close down their American manufacturing sites and move them overseas, or what's called 'off-shoring.'
After leaving the Presidency, Lyndon B. Johnson, a Democrat, alleged, "Republicans [...] simply don't know how to manage the economy. They're so busy operating the trickle-down theory, giving the richest corporations the biggest break, that the whole thing goes to hell in a handbasket."
"We've got a tax code that is encouraging flight of jobs and outsourcing. And that's why we've specifically recommended ... that Congress change our tax code so that we stop giving tax breaks to companies that are moving to Mexico and China and other places, and start putting those tax breaks into companies that are investing here in the United States."

Now, we're hearing even more lies, that it would be a catastrophe if we would increase the taxes on all the wealthy that own over 90% of American wealth.
What the professional liars being employed by these rich fucks are saying is that we need to get the budget under control by cutting what they call 'entitlements,' Medicare; Medicaid and Social Security.
Social Security is NOT an entitlement, it's money taken from your paycheck which you eventually expect to withdraw when you retire.
Social Security is an investor funded program that has also been used to fund the government, in other words, the feds have been stealing our money.
The stolen SS funds are now approaching 3 trillion.
GAO reportAnother way the feds rob us is thru inflation. The grave-robbers at the Fed make sure that the dollar steadily devalues, so it will be cheaper to pay back what they owe you.
“Under the Social Security Act, all earnings from employment in the United States count towards earning social security benefits, regardless of the lawful presence of the worker, his or her citizenship status, or country of residence. Immigrants [both legal and otherwise] become entitled to benefits from unauthorized work if they can prove that the earnings and related contributions belong to them. However, they cannot collect such benefits unless [or until] they are either legally present in the United States [hence the Administration's Guest Worker Program], or living in a country where SSA is authorized to pay them their benefits. [Hence an SSA office in Mexico City] Mexico is such a country.”
Guess fuckheads like Glenn Beck and Bill O'LIElly must of not had parents who taught them not to lie, that or the money they get from Wall Street con artists is so tempting, they'd slit their own Mother's throat to keep those paychecks coming.
“The Reagan-Bush years have exalted private gain over public obligation, special interests over the common good, wealth and fame over work and family. The 1980s ushered in a Gilded Age of greed and selfishness, of irresponsibility and excess, and of neglect.”
Contrast that with Mr. Obama’s recent statement, in an interview with a Nevada newspaper, that Reagan offered a “sense of dynamism and entrepreneurship that had been missing.”
For it did fail. The Reagan economy was a one-hit wonder. Yes, there was a boom in the mid-1980s, as the economy recovered from a severe recession. But while the rich got much richer, there was little sustained economic improvement for most Americans. By the late 1980s, middle-class incomes were barely higher than they had been a decade before — and the poverty rate had actually risen.
