SFBG Radio: Meg's taxes, Jerry's campaign, Linda's music


In today's episode, Johnny and Tim talk about why Meg Whitman wants to avoid paying taxes, why Jerry Brown is so late in getting a campaign started ... and why the oldies stations never play Linda Rondstadt songs. You can check it out after the jump.

Another great webcast. I wish more people were talking about the governor race (but then again I'm a news/political junkie). I still think with a Republican tide election Brown should be doing more and progressives should be doing more as well.

Congresscritters and judges; apparently Meg wants to buy a state, The problem with a lot of rich kids is that they buy toys but don't read the instructions, and they break them. Can we afford to take that chance? I don't think so.

If you look at her history, every company that she worked for she ran into the ground and they had to pay her millions of dollars to go-away, and in some cases $200 million.

Great show as always. Sadly what we are seeing here is just another chapter in conservative Republican screw-u-ism. You see, it's (as BP Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg once said) "the small people" who should pay taxes, you know folks like yourself and the rest of us who aren't party of the hoy paloy club. I love the lie/veiled threat they like to shlep out "oh don't tax us, or else we may not invest in jobs here!" That's what the Grand Ol' Plutocrat's trickle down...no wait...trickled on economics system is. Broken promise (job losses, rust belt, millions who have died from falling through the cracks of the safety net those bastards slashed) and a broken budget (budget deficits, prior to their economic agenda national debt was under $1.2T or 33% to $9.9T or 70,2% if GDP, becoming a net debtor from a net creditor, oh and a trade deficit). This doesn't even include the potential layoffs that Meg wants to add to the already expanding unemployed. So if you want to see what a Witman Governorship would be like, look at what Reagan and his ilk did for our republic.
