Jews - if this economy is hurting you, good, I no longer give a damn.
There have recently been a lot of talks about raising taxes on the richest in NY. Mayor Bloomberg was very against it, insisting that since only the top 40,000 people sustain NY, taxing them even more would make them move to different states which would really cripple the city's economy.
I agree with Bloomberg and neither my family nor myself fall even nearly close to the top 40,000, yet we feel they shouldn't be burdened anymore. What is it that we feel should be done? Mass tax-cuts. It's what got us out of the recession during the Reagen era.
Regardless, allowing 40,000 out of 8 million to be the sole breadwinners in a city, is reckless. Only an idiot group of people would allow something like that, which leads me to my point. Only the government and the Jews could allow something like this.
what do I mean? well, I think my point on the government is clear. They have what is called progressive tax, which emphasises taxing a specific group of people (which leads to budget's relying on those few people).
So now, why are Jews stupid? because they emphasize on the few. The Torah forbids giving more than 20 percent of income towards ma'aser, yet the Rabbeim insist on some nonsense loophole, which now means that the Jewish institutions rely mostly on the top earners in the community. Now with the market crash and the Madoff Ponzi scheme, what do we have? Institutions going bankrupt- instead of rebbeim preventing the problem years ago by enforcing an actual halacha - a father must teach his son a trade- the Rebbeim allowed the system to rely on the few productive members of society. Now that a lot of the wealth is gone, the insignificants in their yeshivas cannot even help out, because they lack in any practical skills.
I learned in HS and my sister is learning now in HS, that the Jews are the microcosm of the world.
The 'gedolim' are at fault for the global crisis, because they caused a parnassa crisis in the frummy community, which stemmed to the global one. how fun!
Until our gedolim realize they're leading us on a path of economic crisis, and universal frummy poverty, our economy will not recover, afterall, they do teach us that the goyim follow in our path. It's no wonder their world is falling apart.
