More Election thoughts

Lots of moonbat rants out there. Here is one of my favorite.

Hidden Assumption/Bias from the Talking Heads

Watching CNN during the speeches, I came across another stupid assumption by the MSM. The comment was regarding how, in this election, many US citizens were voting against their best economic interests, and along social issues. The theory being that the rich, by voting Democrat, were voting against their economic interests (Bush tax cuts) and for social policy (gay marriage). The poor, rural types, by voting Republican, were voting against their economic interests (tax cuts for the rich) and for social policy (traditional marriage).

Interesting theory, but Bush tax cuts are for everyone, although the Dems make it seem that the rich are the only ones benefiting. If you make $500k and get a 10% tax cut and I make $20k and get a 10% tax cut, we both get a 10% tax cut. Sure, you get $50k and I get $2k, but ten percent is ten percent. Why shouldn't you get more money back in absolute terms, since you pay more?

More evidence of Big Media swallowing whole the Dems talking points. However, based on the election results, maybe "the prols" are not as dumb as they think.

I like your blog. It's informative and well written. I really enjoy it's funny sides too. Every time you mention your left wing girl and your coliding views it really adds some nice spice to this blog. No, I dare say it really adds some much needed humanity to your political topics. Most blogs are devoid of this, but yours has it and I think it's very unique. Keep up the good work and keep up your relationship with your affectionatly named "moonbat".
