‘Tis the season to beware of fragrant fertilizer falling from the mouths of politicians.
Go to one of my recent rants on the economy and click on the comments section. There you’ll find a Huckabee supporter filling cyberspace with a rich infusion of methane in defense of the so-called Huckabee “fair tax: plan.
For example, he says:
“The FairTax has the broadest base and the lowest rate of any single-rate tax reform plan. [THBP]”That’s quite possibly so, but he fails to mention the essential un-fairness of clobbering a marginal wage earner (or an out-of-work and hungry job-seeker) with the same tax rate on a pair of socks or infant formula for his baby that a multi-billionaire would pay for his yacht.
Then my Huckabee-supporting correspondent relies on a bunch of obscure economists at a less-than-first-rate university who used an unproven and unprovable computer model, to confidently declare:
“Real wages are 10.3 percent, 9.5 percent, and 9.2 percent higher in years 1, 10, and 25, respectively than would otherwise be the case. [THBNP].”Yeah, and pigs can fly.
However, you don’t have to be on the far right to master the art of doubletalk. I recently stumbled across a “mission statement” from an artist with a magnificently unintelligble plan to bring us all world peace.
I reproduce it below in full for your brain-busting entertainment and as a warning to pay attention to what politicians – mostly especially Republican politicians – are saying. You may discover they’re only making impressive-sounding noises that, on close analysis, tell you nothing, nothing, nothing at all.
The World Community in time can evolve and create through a new biomolecular multicultural engineering logic linguistic and symbolic spanning six thousand years of global cultural written history on all orders of biological magnitude a new microscopic and macroscopic grid coordinate structure whose biological neuronal molecular dynamics link and entrain correlation relationships that encodes, compress new biological neuronal pattern configurations that are embedded in the biological neuronal tapestry fabric of the Charter of United Nations and the universal Declaration of Human Rights. All nations are multicultural. This new linking global universal fabric logic will synchronize entrain and evolve a new molecular fabric of a new tapestry linking energy matter in a new global logic probability distribution output spatial and temporal spanning all orders of biological neuronal magnitude. This new distribution probability output will influencinfluence within the evolving evolutionary adaptive biological mechanisms of neuro social cooperation. The amplification of these new biological signals will build new grid coordinates and linking correlation that will be embedded in the global and local visualization formational communication system for all ages. The illumination of these new aesthetic biological pattern configurations, linguistic and symbolic signals, in a new aesthetic visual band with node will allow us to focus, target and map, these new energy matter biological coordinate throughout the entire brain. In conclusion, we can now introduce and evolve these new biological neuronal unified field grid coordination in local and global level that will entrain, and synchronize evolving evolutionary structures of thought linking, weaving a new linguistic and symbolic grid coordinates that will strengthen our evolving evolutionary multicultural civilization.
