I sat there watching the President speak in utter disbelief. Seriously. How the fuck did this happen? How did we get a President who OPENLY calls for operational control of a private corporation? Has anyone read the Constitution? Does anyone understand economics? For the past decade we’ve been propping up bad debt with government security. Now, when that bad debt does what it’s supposed to do (go bad) we bail out those companies. The market crashes. The economy crumbles. What does this Administration do to fix the problem? Why, bolster programs that caused the problem to begin with. Makes sense, right? Sweet Baby Jesus.
He needs to go before he makes things worse. He needs to take that fucking nutcase Barney Frank with him. Calling Scalia a homophobe? Has he bothered to look up Scalia’s voting record? Why does nobody call him on his idiocy? Why is he still in Washington?
If you’re employed, hard working, and pay your taxes, you’re fucked.
Well, unless your someone who’s never worked for your money, anyway. Let the redistribution begin. If The One gets his way, we’ll spend more during this administration than all others combined. We’ll move towards more government control of….well, everything. We’ll tax the job makers until they bleed, then spread it amongst the job evaders. We’ll silence talk radio. We’ll reward irresponsible behavior. Yay us.
Is that what the founding fathers had in mind? Create a “working class” who’s job is to support those who choose not to? That’s not fair. Some are unable to. Many people are unable to work do to their disabilities. You know. Obesity. Depression. Anxiety. Fear of labor. The people who bled to turn their vision of a free land where men and women are able to make their own way without government oppression into a reality have been betrayed. I guess they didn’t foresee citizens allowing themselves to become subjects. It’s quite easy, really. Create a class of people supported by your representatives in government, with your money. Continue to support them for generations, fostering their dependence. Toss out a candidate who can motivate their unemployed, lazy asses and get them to the polls. Voila! Socialism!
It’s a sad day for America. Even if we turn it around, the effect will be felt for generations.
