The 51% Declares War




There have been a series of misleading newsletters and messages sent out by various politically minded CEOs that have told their workers that if they dare to vote Democratic, they will be most probably subject to loss of their jobs, either by the vagaries of markets or by the direct fiat of the CEOs who will be enraged and seeking revenge:
 

Koch Industries, the Wichita, Kan.-based company run by the billionaire Koch brothers, sent a voter information packet to 45,000 employees of its Georgia Pacific subsidiary earlier this month.
In it was a letter, dated Oct. 1, from Koch Industries president Dave Robertson implicitly warning that "many of our more than 50,000 U.S. employees and contractors may suffer the consequences" of voting for President Obama and other Democrats in the 2012 elections, a list of conservative candidates the company's political action committee endorses and a pair of editorials: one, by David Koch, supporting Mitt Romney, and the other, by Charles Koch, condemning Obama....
I repeat that there is NO political common ground with these people. Mr. Ryan himself said a few years ago that he sought no unity, rather he sought a clear-cut partisanship... as clear as Romney's 49%... as clear as Lenin's Bolsheviks.

I said years ago that these people seek to balance the deficit upon our backs, and they seek to recoup their fortunes with our blood.
(It sounds like a time of prophecy, does it not?)

note: my percentage may be wrong, but the only clip art was for 51... thus is history determined.

They are not even interested in balancing the deficit, Paul. All their policies are aimed at enriching the coffers of the already filthy rich. And while they will indeed be doing this on our backs, they will not generate enough revenue for the government perks they want to pay themselves--defense, multi-million dollar subsidies, etc.--so they will just increase the deficit. They are liars to the marrow of their bones.
