I wrote an article for Contagious Transformation on the State of the Union. This is an excerpt:
-By Stacy E. Washington
Barack Obama delivered a complete rehash of his three previous State of the Union speeches. While the repetitive nature of his speech was tiresome it is always necessary to carefully examine what the President says for the underlying meaning. Many of his calls to action have been delivered in speeches to the public.
It’s important to note the careful expansion of his tax agenda. Now the ones that should pay their fair share are the top 2 percent not the top 1 percent. It doesn’t seem to matter to him at all that even if you took 100% of the wealth, assets and earnings of the top ten percent it would only fund government operations for six weeks. Soaking the rich is an exercise in futility. The rich (to borrow the ridiculous class warfare nomenclature of the liberal agenda) are extraordinarily adept at avoiding paying more taxes than they feel are necessary. They utilize tax shelters and move assets to more friendly shores. This is not surprising if you note the following: people like to protect their assets! Soaking the rich has never worked. Moving on!
Head on over and read the rest here.
