The US has fallen over the cliff. No, really.

I have heard the Republicans say they were victorious in recent days and I’ve heard folks saying the Democrats were successful. What a bunch of bull*#!&.  There have been talk shows, call in programs and pundits and so on pontificating and stringing yarn for days. What I just heard though made me really pissed off.

There’s a Republican on CBC now, Rand Paul from Kentucky. He argues against an increase in taxes on the wealthy because…as happened in Britain (he says)… THE RICH WILL JUST LEAVE THE COUNTRY. Are you kidding me? They’ll just take their toys and go home?! Oh for the love of dog give me a break.

This Canadian pays taxes. I think it’s fair that the more I earn, the more I pay. I wish it didn’t have to be so but hell….I like paved roads and public schools and my life saving Tommy Douglas-care. I think the Americans are starting to cannibalize themselves and it just makes me shake my head. Are you for real?

I know some of you are going to froth over this post. Not sorry. Somehow the idea of a leftist approach like sharing (!!!) makes a lot of Americans and somehow a lot of Christian Canadians nervous. Sharing, people. Just like your mama taught you. Share. SHARE.

Ommmmm. Time for a glass of wine and some camembert. I would share with you Americans, but French cheese isn’t allowed into the US. And you should be thankful that the French taxation system isn’t allowed in either.

Happy Thursday. Jeeeeeez.
