All Our Candidates Are Fascists, Yet Pussies, And I Just Don't Fucking Get It.

I was watching a clip of John McCain on the Daily Show. Now do not take this as a bash on Jon Stewart in any way. I love the guy and I see why he is doing this (or perhaps I'm giving him too much credit), but he was just being rude and arguing and interrupting McCain like crazy. Sure they have "talks" backstage and he has been on the show so much they may be "friends" but still, he is running for the highest political office on the continent, of both American continents for that matter (some say the world, which could be the case, it's just a debate I don't want to get into right now). AND HE IS ON WORLD WIDE TELEVISION BEING PUNKED LIKE A BITCH!

If John McCain were Presidential material, he would have gotten visually upset and told him off. Something like "Listen, would you interrupt Teddy Roosevelt or Abraham Lincoln, would you insult John F. Kennedy? I am going to be the President of the United States and I would appreciate it if you would treat me as such." That would not have gotten my vote, but would have gotten my respect.

I like Stewart because he is doing this and showing people that these guys do not deserve the power they are aspiring for. He is exposing them for the gutless worms they are. Much applause to him, and I think he is waiting for one of them to put him in his place. Again, he may not vote for them but he will respect them a little more.

I have just never seen such fascist warmongering pussies in my life. They talk such talk, but will take abuse from anyone for a single vote. Whores. Fucking whores. We need a fucking Teddy Roosevelt again, someone who challenges world leaders to a boxing match in the White House gym (yes, he really did that) someone who will step up and re-enact the anti-monopoly laws we used to have and shut these corporate serfs the fuck down. Someone who gives a fuck about people, and will NOT accept being disrespected to the people they are representing to the world.

Of course Stewart is really nice to Obama and Hillary, which he should be an ass to them too, maybe not as bad, but still they deserve the right to stand up for themselves to and not just be a smiling face on the TV that has nothing new to say because no one is challenging them.

Fair Tax NOW!

I bought a sandwich combo yesterday for lunch advertised at $7.29. By the time I was done handing over cash, it REALLY cost $7.73. That's nearly $0.50 extra. If that was all the tax I actually paid for that sandwich, then it would be a pretty good deal. Unfortunately, here's the other hidden taxes that got rolled in that $7.73:

-Property taxes for the restaurant, payroll, Social Security, and Medicare taxes for the employee that made the sandwich, the truck driver that delivered the food to Blimpie, the distribution center employee who shipped the material for the sandwch, the farmers that grew the wheat for the bread, jalapenos, sweet peppers, lettuce, and onions that went on the sandwich, and the farmers who raised the chickens, and for the people who killed and processed then shipped the chicken, and all the truck drivers associated with those processes, along with the property taxes for the distribution center and all the farms! They are all taxed at all stages of the game, and that gets passed right along to me, the guy that already gets my income taxed!

Sure, 25% doesn't sound too bad when it's said like that, but then you get taxed again on absolutely everything that you buy for a compounding effect that generally adds up to most people paying around HALF of your money to the government at some stage.

We need the Fair Tax NOW! The Fair Tax is taken at the retail sales counter, and NEVER FROM YOUR PAYCHECK! There are no Value-Added Taxes (VAT) like they have in Europe, everything that you could pay is on your receipt, and you will NEVER have to report how much money you make to the government. The IRS is banished forever from our great country. Under the Fair Tax, you know exactly how much you pay in taxes, and the total amount of taxes you pay can never be hidden from you by politicians who make a living stealing your money.

Stop telling me that "it's a good idea, but they'll never pass it". Who's they, and why are you voting for them? This is more important than a political party! Hold their feet to the fire or we'll throw the tea in the harbor and start over!!!
