Yesterday, I enjoyed in shock George W. Shrub’s complicated speech to your house of Representatives. It was instead telling that this speech had not been in primetime yet instead at 9 a.m. (6 a.m. in the West). I understand a whole lot about national politics considering that I write political thrillers (www.thetwentyfirstcentury.com) and I am constantly researching for my publications and posts. However it does not take an author of politics, or even one that doesn’t comply with politics, to realize that what George Bush claimed yesterday made absolutely no feeling. With all the (major) troubles he as well as the Republican party remain in, it is not surprising that he has suddenly chosen to speak (or deceive) the American people concerning America’s business economics: November is coming.

Essentially, Bush said that the state of our economy is in good condition and is obtaining more powerful everyday. Am I crazy, or has George Bush tripled the deficit considering that he took workplace (and increased his income promptly after being vouched in)?
We currently, for the very first time in history, owe more to foreign nations than they owe us (compromising our position as the globe’s incredibly power and jeopardizing our defenses).
The Iraqi War is mosting likely to cost close to a trillion bucks by the time it finishes and we restore what we ruined there, damaging our economic climate over here.
There is still the restoring of New Orleans and also other cities, in addition to what calamities are can be found in the possible future.
Exactly how around the billions of bucks a day in passion our country is building up?
Shrub intends to spend a lot of money safeguarding our boundaries, not from terrorists, yet from inadequate Mexican households who have no work and require to feed their households. The terrorists are can be found in from Canada as well as various other cities, not from Mexico.
Rates of interest increase on a monthly basis, forcing Americans to pay more on their bank card as well as their home mortgages and their college car loans, etc. Because of that, housing prices have begun to lower due to the fact that individuals can not pay for a home AND a substantial rate of interest, besides rising property taxes every year, to spend for it. Isn’t this elevating taxes by a different name.
George Shrub still believes, and also prepares to proceed the absurd tax obligation rebate (millions to the rich, an allowance to the bad).
The cost of acquiring gas is enhancing the price of every little thing we purchase, although the oil firms are delighting in significant profits (Exxon/Mobil made $340 BILLION last year). This residual result has elevated the costs on food, medication, garments, every little thing. As well as it is not going to finish, as I see my gas station raise their costs almost daily. How much poorer can we obtain?
The American individuals have less and much less and also George Bush states the state of our economic climate is good and also is expanding. It sure appears to me and a lot of Americans that it’s our individual financial debt that is growing. How many individuals are better off today than they were 5 years earlier? Not me, or any individual I understand.
It’s all smoke and also mirrors.
