The reigning corporate plutocracy's game plan could be succinctly summarized by paraphrasing a famous song of yesteryear.

 

"Praise the Lord, pass the ammunition and give me my tax cuts!" is reflective of what passes for current day philosophy of the New World Order, neoconservative right inhabited by the likes of George W. Bush, Tea Partiers, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, and Karl Rove.

How much better it would be for America as well as the rest of the world if the angry Boehner refrain regarding Obama's health care legislation of "Hell no, you can't!" and the angry frustration embodied in it represented an accurate assessment of where things really stand in current day America.

 

In the overall scheme of events the Obama campaign refrain that Boehner was mocking is far more indicative of how the New World Order neocons are faring than any kind of accurate prediction of where Obama's forthcoming administration would take America.

In the interest of "compromise" Obama appears ready to reinstate irresponsible Bush tax cuts for the top two percent of Americans under a threat of blackmail by the McConnell-Boehner led neocon team. Republicans have threatened another government shutdown of the kind evoked by Newt Gingrich and his right wing Republican allies during the Clinton Administration.

 

Nobel economics laureate Paul Krugman in the New York Times December 5 concluded that an extension of the Bush tax cuts would result in over $4 trillion in lost revenue over the next decade and over the next 75 years such a loss would be incurred of better than three times the entire projected Social Security shortfall.

 

An FDR, Truman, or JFK would call the bluff of the Republican bullies and take his case directly to the American people. Recent national polls have consistently revealed that Americans oppose the irresponsible measure that would reek future havoc and push the nation ever closer to bankruptcy status.

The neocons can be counted upon to use a three-pronged strategy to push the New World Order initiatives. The first of "praise the Lord" involves keeping the Religious Right zealots happy. This has been done by the likes of demagoguing the Terry Schiavo Case along with the Don't Ask, Don't Tell military policy regarding gays serving in the military.
