A Look Behind The Curtain At The Fiscal Cliff Political Theater, The Joke’s On You!
In a previous post, Fiscal Cliff? or Political Theater? I said, “The fiscal cliff political theater being preformed on the Washington D.C. stage is just that, a performance. It is not being performed for the benefit of the audience, it is being performed for the benefit of the actors.
I should have said, “the political actors, the politically connected, and the media” because all of them benefit at our expense. We have to understand this joke, known as the fiscal cliff, is on us. While we were watching this political theater, the back stage workers were in the parking lot breaking into our cars stealing whatever they could, and were also picking the pockets of the audience during intermission. Read these articles, if you can get through them without breaking something, to see how politicians, the media, and the politically connected were like sleight of hand artists diverting our attention from what was really happening. We are going to pay more and the connected will still have, or will get, their exemptions or subsidies, all at our expense.

“Politics is the world in which they operate, and the lens through which they view everything. Because of this underlying reality, and because they have the power of Government behind them enforcing their edicts, you should never trust what they say or do, and always question their motives.” is a quote from a previous post, “You Never Let A Serious Crisis Go To Waste”.
