SimCain? Herman Cain's "9-9-9 Plan" Resembles Tax Code In Video Game
Amanda Terkel, a reporter for The Huffington Post, finds that Herman Cain's "9-9-9 Plan" looks a lot like the default tax structure in the computer game SimCity 4.
She writes:Long before Cain was running for president and getting attention for his 999 plan, the residents of SimCity 4 -- which was released in 2003 -- were living under a system where the default tax rate was 9 percent for commercial taxes, 9 percent for industrial taxes and 9 percent for residential taxes....When asked about similarities between Cain's plan and SimCity's default tax rates, Cain campaign spokesman JD Gordon replied, "Well, we all like 9-9-9."
Cain's plan would replace the entire federal tax code--income taxes, payroll taxes, capital gains taxes, etc.--with three 9 percent taxes on consumption, business income and personal income.From M.o.1 -- This, my friends, is called "predictive programming". This sort of thing has been done for quite sometime in all forms of media. We saw it with the infamous "Simpsons" episode predicting 9/11 as well as the "Lone Gunmen" episode showing remote controlled jet liners being flown into the trade towers on purpose by the government to start a war. There is also the infamous "Gulf Oil Spill" footage in the film "Knowing". The evidence is endless. Is this merely another HUGE line of coincidences out there? My guess is no simply because of how spot on this is.....I mean a "9-9-9 Plan" on Sim City? That EXACT percentage? Just a little too perfect.
