It’s not hard if you have a show on MSNBC.
There’s a mantra and all you do is repeat it, like a fourth grade math teacher going over the same fractions year after year until she starts to develop a dislike for 10-year-olds.
I get home from work and click on the TV and MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is saying “the rich” aren’t paying their “fair share.”
The message is that none of us would be falling off the fiscal cliff like a herd of lemmings if only the top 2 percent of income earners would pay “a little more.”
I go out for dinner and come back and Rachel Maddow is on TV standing in front of the Hoover Dam in a blue hardhat saying we need to “think big,” like previous generations.
If “the rich” would pay their “fair share,” we could build more government projects, more dams, and leave more infrastructure to the next generation, like in the 1930s.
The problem is that the Hoover Dam straddles the Colorado River. Try pouring that much concrete in a river today and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service would be going through the mud to make sure no bug or worm was having its home turf disturbed.
