We thought we’d be served some red meat by Paul Ryan in his Convention speech last night, but I felt like I got my blood sucked instead.
I can still feel the fang marks. He not only looks like a vampire, his seductive blue eyes and deceptive boyish good looks are geared toward taking you by surprise when the fangs go in. Soon we may all be a nation of the undead if the Republican have their way.
Separated at birth? Ryan and Eddie Munster
The meat they offering is just pink slime dressed up in Republican red white and blue. Or is it something worse?
No red meat, or even rattlesnake that tastes like chicken, they offer up a diet of lies, devoid of nutrition, but sold in Prime-Time to a nation hungry for answers to the question of why they can’t find work, their kids can’t afford school, their homes are about to be foreclosed on. Why they can’t afford health insurance. Ryan glibly says Trust us, we’ll save Medicare. But they neglect to tell you their savings will cost you dearly when you get to the check- out line and find that you have to pick up more of a bill, despite paying into it all these years.
They say they will create 12 million jobs, but they don’t say how or where. (And oh surprise, the projection of 12 million jobs is about right for the economy anyway, that is, nothing they do has anything to do with it, and if they really were the job creators, they’re figures would be way higher than average.) Not everyone can come out of a community college and go into investment banking. Will these jobs be in China? Maybe they’ll export American workers the way they exported their money. Set up work camps in China where you can answer tech support questions for pennies a day and sleep five to a room.
Their biggest lie is that giving tax breaks to the rich makes them into “job creators.” Well, where’s the beef?, as the little old lady used to say. Mitt Romney says trust me to fix what’s wrong with this country; I’m a successful businessman. But success to these parasites means something very different than it to does t the average American taxpayer. According to Rolling Stone, Bain Capital, which Romney boasts about, was nothing but another blood sucking corporation not interested in “creating jobs” but in looting the treasuries of the companies they gobbled up. There’s the red meat, unfortunately the meat of the working families sucked dry in the wake of the Romney and his “successful” business dealings. Successful for him. Tragic for you and me. Let’s listen between the lines of the right wing rhetoric as they try to tell us how being a successful business man translates into being a successful leader of a nation.
Sure Romney was successful in business; his success comes at our expense. He got rich. You didn’t. And another thing, While he boasts about tithing to his church, he refuses to tell us how much (if anything) he’s tithed to his Country over the past several years. Show us the tax returns Mitt.
When will Americans wake up out of their dream of pulling themselves up by bootstraps they don’t have and into an economy that people like Romney have already shipped overseas? These people are in for themselves. They get the meat, we get the trickled down juices that spill out of their bloodied mouths. Worse, we are the meat. They would be very happy to turn all of the working Americans into their own version of Soylent green. It’s what for Republican dinner.
