Scotties Toy Box

December 30, 2017

We can do better, we have to do better. We need to see how fast we are dropping. The lower incomes are being crushed out of existence for the upper incomes.

Recently a person tried to claim that taxation was theft, and to take tax money from him to help anyone else was personal theft against him.  I tried for three days to explain how it was the government’s job to work for the common good of the people.  I tried to explain how other countries gain great advantage by taxing the wealthy more.  I tried explain how studies have shown that safety nets, assistance for the poor, healthcare programs to name a few  actually help the whole.  I showed how we have declined in many different areas during the time the upper incomes have raked in more of a huge share of the countries wealth.  The person’s response basically came down to I got mine using public resources and I do not want to pay a cent for any one else or the services I used.   Do not take a cent from me.  If others have a need let them go to charities for help was the basic idea of one of the replies.  The meme below shows how short sighted that is.    Hugs

  1. Scotty…the republicans will never, ever believe this meme..it doesn’t matter that it is absolutely correct, it doesn’t matter that the country would be so much better off if we make some changes…they can NOT believe it or it makes their miserable lives absolutely without purpose and validation.

    • Thank you Suze. I know your correct, but it saddens me so today. I just can not understand why people have regressed and become so miserable toward their fellow human in exchange for hoarding all the possibly can to themselves. Hugs

    • It was heart breaking in a way because of how hard the person fought any assistance or help for those in lower incomes, even working poor, but at the same time saw nothing wrong with the extremely wealthy keeping or getting more money. What have we become? Hugs
