as the regional hegemon, this is Saudi Arabia's responsibility, just like it would be our responsibility if it happened in Mexico. paying for it directly will wake up Americans.
You increase the tax on the rich and you think it won't affect you or they will care a lot??
They will increase the prices and your life cost.
The wallet of a Rich never change. The rich will always spend the same amount, either you increase or decrease the tax for him.
You decrease the tax, he will invest more. You increase the tax, he will absorb more.
Envidia te mata !!!
The blind leading the blind !!!
Its really fun watching the conniptions that are ongoing. Some dems for, some dems against, some republicans for, some against (same breakdown on DP BTW)...yet invariably people are making this be about left wing, right wing, Obama against the republicans. That part is fun to watch because those doing it look absolutely goofy. At the same time...
its very sad. People have a hard time saying what they believe should be the actual response, duration, targets, etc. Its almost like they are waiting til after the 'event' happens, if it happens, to commit to something.
