Oscar: 5.6 plus 4.3 equals 5.6. 5.6 plus 1.4 equals 13.7. 13.7 plus 1.6 equals 13.7. ..
MacIntosh: What are you doing?
Oscar: I’m learnin’ Republican math.
MacIntosh: Oh boy…where did you hear that?
Oscar: That lady Michelle Bachmann is teachin’ me.
Oscar: Yep…she said when we have a deficit from cutting taxes for rich peoples it’s not really a deficit because the rich people still have theirs money and stuff.
Oscar: Yep…so the 4.3 trillion increase in the deficit between 2000 and 2008 doesn’t count on-account-of-because George Bush was a Republican and Cheney clearly stated that deficits don’t matter.
Oscar: Yep…and the 1.4 trillion added to the deficit after Obama took office comes to a total of 13.7 trillion on-account-of-because Obama is a leftist big spender and everyone knows Democrats can’t control the budgets.
Oscar: Yep…and the 1.6 trillion dollars added to the deficit in the next two years cuz of continuing tax cuts for the rich peoples won’t count on-account-of-because theys buying big mansions and boats and expensive recreational drugs for theirs children and that stuff donts count toward the deficit plus they gots more than they can spend so they can’t spend it.
Oscar: Whats would happen if we get rid of taxes for all the peoples in the middle?
MacIntosh: It would add 2 trillion a year to the deficit.
Oscar: Is that real math or Republican math?
MacIntosh: Not a difference….Republicans think tax cuts for the middle class would really add to the deficit.
Oscar: Howse come.
MacIntosh: Because the middle class would spend it all on wasteful things like food, shelter, medical expenses and education for their children.
Oscar: And then theys wouldn’t have it anymore.
Oscar: So it all depends on what you spend it on and ifs you got so much you can’t spend it?
MacIntosh: Yep…according to Michelle Bachmann that’s the way it is.
Oscar: Republican math is hard to learn MacIntosh.
MacIntosh: I can help if you want.
MacIntosh: First you must turn on the Fox channel and turn the volume up so you can’t hear anything else.
MacIntosh: Then you shut your eyes very tight and try to get an image where the people that can’t find a job are lazy bastards sitting around drinking Budweiser on the dole.
Oscar: I’m tryin’.
MacIntosh: Now try to get an image where the children from the 6600 families that will save 8 billion dollars in inheritance taxes are sitting around doing corn rows of cocaine, stimulating their central nervous systems and the economy at the same time.
Oscar: I can almost see it..
MacIntosh: Now imagine your election campaign receiving huge payments from rich people and corporate interests.
Oscar: I can see it. I have seen the light. My eyes are open.
MacIntosh: What have you learned Oscar?
MacIntosh: You didn’t learn Republican math?
Oscar: Nopes…when I opened my eyes the math was pushed out by the reality comin’ in.
