Define full employment. Does it mean that everyone who wants a job has one? Or, does it mean that everyone is making a living wage? Or, I would hope, that it means that everyone who wants a job has “one” AND that it is a living wage. Are my hopes wrong?
Under the massive shift of wealth to top 1% no one has money or credit to spend for holidays. The greater question is whether the politicians will now address income equality or will the 1% go on a spending spree at Walmart, Target and Home Depot?
Shame on Apple!
The “Final Solution” was the term used by the Third Reich under Hitler which was designated to be used for the extermination of the Jews. The Jews needed to be exterminated as the “scapegoat” for Germany’s problems and the economic drain on German society.
The decreasing and eventual elimination of Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security and aid for veterans is the Republican Party’s “Final Solution” in the tradition of Ayn Rand. The Republicans view the poor, sick, elderly and veterans as no longer having productive lives. These other citizens, the Republicans believe, are the cause of the economic strain on society caused by the programs supporting them. These other citizens paid for these programs with tax dollars from their years of work, service or, in the case of veterans, to their death for our country.
There is a “Final Solution” that would be beneficial to the Republicans and those they want dead and gone. It would be a win, win solution. They need to pass laws that make euthanasia legal for those who are terminally ill, economically not viable or have the desire to not be slowly starved to death medically or financially.
The tax dollars needed to support these “others” will be greatly decreased or no longer be wasted on programs like Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security or veterans. Those tax dollars could be used to decrease the debt caused by the tax breaks on the wealthy and endless wars.
Is there less morality in allowing the suffering of these our citizens to continue while we blame them for the trillions of dollars in debt that continues to mount under this and past administrations? Is it not the decent thing to allow them to free themselves with dignity from a slow agonizing life and death?
A final solution, not by governmental economic starvation; but with human dignity would seem preferable.
Some would object to euthanasia on moral grounds. Let their arguments be heard as long as they stop imposing THEIR “final solution” upon our fellow citizens. Can they support one “final solution” and oppose the other “final solution” without hypocrisy?
Is euthanasia the better “final solution”?
the average guy? The answer is no. The average American is already up to his ears in debt. The problem this economy is facing is that consumers have no money with which to consume or to borrow.
To watch our heritage being sold because of a couple of lobbyists and greedy politicians.
Aid for property in flood or fire zones must be stopped. Aid encourages the building of homes where homes shouldn’t be built.
