"Bring it on?"

By Remy Benoit

George Bush made these words infamous, at the cost of so many lives.

"They" say "we" are persecuting them, actually asking, no demanding, that "they" pay their fair share: that "they" open factories here; that "they" stop trying to deconstruct unions; that "they" not pay slave wages abroad. Indeed, that "they" stop making the President look like he caused this mess, when "they" did.

So at Truthdig, at RSN, Robert Reich says Class Warfare? Bring it On!. It is their appellation, this 'class warfare' term. Be careful what you wish for, but know that the tax holiday is over; that buying elections is over; that corporations are not people. It is First and Ten and The People have picked up the ball.
