OOO : Inequality Street

I am not a partisan player in politics. Now that we have that out of the way....you know how the colloquial saying about the rich eating venison and the poor eating each other. Today in Today, the PM as quoted from the paper has said

"Do not go overboard and end up with excessive welfare" for those with lower incomes, said Mr Lee. "Do not over-extend subsidies to people who are not poor. We would only have to raise taxes from the middle-class to pay for these subsidies.

Have you gotten that through your craniums? Yes, all you middle class wage slaves out there. The PM had delegated the honourable duty of assisting the financially disadvantaged to you. The money has to come from somewhere so better you than me. So that the upper echelons do not have to be sullied with that burden. The rich get richer. The poor get help. Now the middle class eat themselves. Are you ready to cannibalise?

as a regular citizen, I would inmagine that money from taxes, not just income tax, but all the other taxes that we pay and from the interest it generates, is used to "fund" a country's needs.

yet in order to help the poorer people of this couintry, it would mean MORE taxes.
so the money that we pay in all forms of taxes, what is that for?

and who beleives the wideening gap between the rich and poor is going to stop after a few years? ...ROFL

Political commentary on your blog? Not sure about that liquidshadow but just a headsup; ALL local blog content (they trace your IPs) are viewed by the IDA a few times a week. Just be careful that's all =)

Appreciate the heads up D. I just feel like ranting about somethings I have no control over sometimes.
