Help Save the Bazillionaires of America

The Right-Wing Way: Making Life Easier for Millionaires
More about the difference between you and the wealthy... and it is pretty UNAmerican:

With projected deficits of $2 trillion over the next ten years, health care costs soaring and tens of thousands of U.S. troops fighting abroad without adequate equipment, what is on the agenda of the House of Representatives today? Permanent repeal of the estate tax for the 30,627 wealthiest Americans who actually paid the tax last year.
Wait, wait: what's on Bush's iPod? Did Michael Jackson really touch those little boys? What about Britney Spears being pregnant? And who will be eliminated from American Idol tonight? Aren't these things more important than silly old deficits or how much the wealthy pay in taxes?

They don't want you paying attention folks: they don't want you paying attention.

Amen. It's all about the mass distraction, baby.

I tend to disagree with the outsourcing as evil and especially mass distraction as any discourse for hiding outsourcing activities. I run a small business and cannot afford a US employee yet, but I can afford assistance from overseas (through elance.com and laborassistance.com). Basically I view the ability to hire non-US labor as an addition to my work force not a substitution. Also keep in mind things will work out. US will gradually migrate to more and more of a services/controlling/management economy and these contries we are outsourcing to will become more and more expensive to do business with. It balances out.
