Trump's tax cuts; pure (evil) genius

Wednesday, December 6, 2017 17:09
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The Trump tax cuts represent an unprecedented transfer of wealth to the .01% in a society already suffocating under the greatest disparity of wealth in the so-called first world.

That’s just for starters. Somewhere down the road it’s inevitable that these cuts will lead to the shredding of what’s left of America’s pitiful social safety net. With less tax revenue there’s lots of stuff that’s gonna go over the side, and you can bet the spending cuts won’t be coming out of the obscenely bloated military budget. That’ll prove especially true if America manages to add another war or two to the perpetual war playlist down the road, as seems increasingly likely.

Since the owners of the corporate media are on the winning side of the Trump tax cuts you won’t be seeing a groundswell of opposition coming from there. Meanwhile, the alternative media are already having their wings clipped by the google-facebook combine’s voluntary and all too enthusiastic censorship of “fake news.”

Let’s not lose sight of the fact that pretty much all the “alternative” news sites run on platforms owned by folks who also benefit bigly from Trump’s tax cuts.

Maybe America can live in denial of her downward spiral for another generation or two. Maybe America can live with tens of millions of homeless instead of hundreds of thousands. Maybe the corporate media can bamboozle the public into supporting more war, even though America’s wars are seldom won and never over.


Maybe not.
