The media would have you believe that the 1% are the job creators and they need tax breaks to stimulate hiring. Nothing could be further from the truth. You may not have understood exactly what the people at the Occupy Wall Street (etal) were thinking, maybe this guy can make it a little clearer for you.
The content of this talk is considered so blasphemous by the Powers that Be that the TED website removed his talk:
“For thousands of years people were sure that earth was at the center of the universe. It’s not, and an astronomer who still believed that it was, would do some lousy astronomy,” Hanauer said at a March 1 speech , according to the Atlantic. “In the same way, a policy maker who believed that the rich and businesses are ‘job creators’ and therefore should not be taxed, would make equally bad policy.”
The Web’s abuzz about the alleged censorship of Seattle venture capitalist Nick Hanauer’s March 2012 TED talk on why the rich
are soul-sucking tax cheatsdon’t create jobs. Turns out it was not a case of censorship at all. It was just a case of the TED organizers deciding that this particular presentation was categorically mediocre, a conclusion with which I firmly concur. ~Forbes
So which is it? It was removed because it was too political, or “categorically mediocre”. You have got to be kidding me.
Which do you believe? I believe The Powers that Be are threatened by the truth contained herein. When we accept that he speaks the truth and individually act, we will finally control our world with each and every dollar we spend. Take control, you are a JOB CREATOR! Do not support companies that violate human rights in the name of dividends and tax breaks.
