A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

CBS News Helps GOP Cover UP Disparity In New Tax Cut Proposal 

An Omission Designed to Provide Political Cover:

Just heard a report by CBS News about the tax savings American can expect from the new "tax cuts." As is usual for the plutocrats, the lion's share of the tax savings is skewed to upper incomes. CBS News stopped their breakdown of tax savings by income analysis at the 500k to 1 million level with those taxpayers saving somewhere between 3 and 7 thousand dollars. They purposefully left out those taxpayers with incomes of more than one million who can expect a tax savings of $42,000.

What's up CBS? Why did you omit this fact? The wealthiest taxpayers receive the most benefit. Of course, the argument will be that this is just a result of progressive tax rates. If so, why not just lay out the facts? This repeated failure by the PMSM (Pathetic Main Stream Media) to just give us the facts and to not edit out unpleasant facts is making it increasingly difficult for an informed electorate.
