FREE LUNCH



The top 10% has been obscenely getting over on the lower 90% of the population, using the government, for years now.

"Free Lunch" by David Johnston shows you how they do it and what needs to be closed/changed so that they start paying their fair share and lower 90% stop getting "legally" robbed blind, while these "fat cats" enrich themselves, at our expense, using the government's help.

Examples: the average hedge fund manager, making billions of dollars in a year, used to pay 0% and now pays 15% in taxes, while the average middle income person pays 40% in taxes. Is that fair? Our current campaign financing system encourages this robbery.

Forget about earning an honest living, when you can live off the backs of the "little people"

And now ... they're robbing workers' pension plans to fund the CEO's pension plan!

It will get far worse.

Take what you have earned over the years and hold on to it.
Invest in long-term energy solutions for yourself and family. Grow your own food. Stop buying things you dont need.

If you have credit debt, default.

Get ready for a wild ride. The great economic thinning is beginning.

Robert J. Elisberg: GOP Demands the Right to Keep Screwing Up the Economy


It's all those crafty Republican economic plans that got us in this national economic disaster in the first place.

I just saw the Devil and he's smilin' at meYes, GM is gonna take our money and "invest $1 billion in Brazil to avoid the kind of problems the U.S. automaker is facing in its home market." Every single person who made this possible should be put in the stocks and left to the judgment of the American people. In February, in Detroit.
