A righteous and universal rant

This ChunkyMark fella seems to understand exactly what’s going on: when Tories (or Republicans in the US) whine about how we can pay for infrastructure and necessary cultural and social amenities, we just have to remind them that YOU BASTARDS HAVE ALL THE MONEY.

You can also see the straight rant without the musical accompaniment, if you prefer it that way.

    However true this may be it is also true that the Central Bank in the U.S.A. has the unlimited power to create money and does so every time it spends on behalf of the Government. There actually is a magic money tree in your law.

    All money is created from nothing for all practical purposes. Yes there is some cost in creating it but it is vanishingly small relative to the denominations created. Wealth on the other hand, isn’t. Wealth is created by the use of energy mediated by the use of money. The money is the easy bit. Of course you can create too much and cause inflation, but that only proves my point that money is made out of virtually nothing and in any amounts a sovereign government wants it to be.

    There is never a limit to the amount of money a government sovereign in it’s own currency can create. There is generally a limit to how much is *wise*, of course. The conditions for a significant inflation in the U.S.A. are pretty well absent today.

    Which doesn’t mean we shouldn’t fix the terrible imbalance between the rich and the rest.

    it is becoming all to clear,so clear that even some of those who have supported the conservatives in the past that the sentiments and the understandings as presented in the rap are essentially true and are in need of alteration. the question is what kind of change, how much and how soon.
    I thought I’d chock when I heard the president from Queens say how much he loved the workers this afternoon.

    I fully expect to have to justify saying this in court one day but I have said on multiple occasions that my tax policy would be “eat the rich.”

    But they tell me things I like to hear, and if I support them, I can be one of them. Yayyyyyy! Thunk!
    I only wish to live long enough to piss on their graves; they like rising water so well.

    They have all the money – well, that was the whole idea.

    How other people pay for things is not their problem.
