“Infrastructure Spent*”

(April 18, 2018)

 

infrastructure spent

taxes suggest opposite

effect obtains, no?

 

  • (Studies of Japan’s ongoing massive “infrastructure” spending mostly by taxpayer yen suggests the drastic dip in individual income/wealth in that so-important nation has slipped from a top-five position to somewhere near 15th in personal income.  A causal relationship, one study suggests, is the monies appropriated for vast improvements has not – or at least since the early 1990s – paid off with rising incomes amongst the taxed.  Are you listening President J. D. Trump?  The advice you keep getting comes from the people who thought George W. Bush did the right thing when he pumped almost a trillion dollars into “infrastructure – shovel-ready jobs(?) – at the request and his willing delivery of Barack H. Obama.  Pour money into a government maw and no matter what the label says the same shit comes out: graft, corruption and union kickbacks and kickforwards and kick the payers in the keister (sp?))

when tax money spent

it’s someone else’s coin:

the squeal* goes away

 

  • (Said by some with envy and some fewer I suspect with admiration: He/She is so frugal they make the buffalo squeal when they part with a nickle.  Such an admirable quality seems never found when it’s tax money being spent, neh?)

You show me your poll*

and I will shake mine just twice

to prove I am fair.

 

A poll is how you feel…then

and has no real meaning…now.
