Spending Is the Game

The ruling class is pulling out all the stops in the mis-framed debate over the direction our country will take to try and put up barriers to anything resembling a halt to what they like to do best; spend the taxpayers money as fast as they can!

The problem is that after going on a literal blitzkrieg of irresponsible spending based upon the cover of cannibalistic stimulus policy known as Keynesian economics, including endless bailouts,  quantitative easing (money printing), crony payouts, and the like, since 2007, we suddenly find ourselves very, very far in debt.

In the 2010 elections the people clearly said, “ENOUGH!”,  by voting out incumbents in historic proportions.  The message was unmistakable that people wanted a halt to fiscal irresponsibility… and out of control government.

So now those most recently voted in are holding fast and we the people are holding everyone’s feet to the fire by expecting them to stand on the principles of limited government and fiscal responsibility.

The establishment, who were shocked by the election results, seemed to understand briefly that business as usual had changed. However, they quickly got over it, believing that they could use their powers to bring any “upstarts” inline with their reality and the way “things are done inside the beltway!” This particular plan has not seemed to work very well though and now we witness much screaming and howling and crying, “FOUL!”

It seems that those associated with the Tea Party movement are now considered middle-earth hobbits incapable of being reasonable nor of understanding the complexities of the game by members in their own party establishment.

We understand just fine.

Obama and the other leftists in charge have no desire to stop spending at a fast and furious rate, but they do have an election to worry about, so they will do whatever it takes to blame the right for their spending addiction.  We learn from them that the current GOP leadership is weak on principles, and will often sacrifice these strategic strongholds (conservative principles) in order to gain minute or insignificant pieces of political ground in order to claim progress.  This easy exploitation seems apparent to everyone but those who are being played.

Economically the left has no answers at all that do not include more taxes and more spending.   They just need the permission to continue their program relatively unabated.  It is their foes in Congress who are continuously “compromising”  to give them this further permission. To be fair, there is actually one area the left would cut willing, our national defense. Other than this, they are about growing, not limiting government size.  For that, they always need more of the people’s money to spend.

The astronomical national debt numbers are not imaginary figures ginned up by cave dwelling know-nothings.  This debt was created in record time by those in Washington… playing their game. These are addicts and enablers trying to point fingers at the interventionists wanting responsibility in their representation! We get back  loud protests about disastrous election results if the game is not allowed to continue on their own terms!

There are only so many points of time where the opportunity exists to turn back in the right direction for this country.  This is one of those times. Let’s put the onus back on those who deserve the real criticism.

The best deal for America is to take the steps needed to bring spending under control, and to do it now, not later.  It may be too tough a job for some, but in that event, we can, and will, find those who are willing to perform the job of ending the spending game.

Teachers Giving America a Lesson on Entitlement Mentality

Who knew responsibly tightening ones financial belt would cause such massive wide spread agony among the parasitic?

Staving Off the Entitlement Flu

Woe be it to the poor governor of any state that tries the new elixir being called “Fiscal Responsibility to the Taxpayers” without preparing for the ensuing pathogenic consequences!
Just when we thought that flu season was about to end for the year, an outbreak of Wi-Madison flu has struck with a wholly illogical vengeance!

Though the evidence is not official, it seems that the influenza strain is a direct result of having to swallow a bitter pill of reality. This medicine causes all sorts of side effects previously undiscovered in recent years… due to the unavailability of this prescription!

Here is just a partial list of severe symptoms and immediate reactions:

  • Widespread sickness sets in on certain select overcompensated professions
  • Shuts down all public schools, leaving the children unfed
  • The infected will mass together at non infected homes and state capitols
  • Causes aggravated, heated, angry, and uncivil rhetoric, complete with cross-hair signs and Nazi symbols
  • Causes the president to comment, and subliminally empathize with the stricken
  • Causes hostage negotiators to fly in and offer to broker a cure
  • Causes certain legislators to flee their jobs for “undisclosed” locations
  • Causes the media to use the words “undisclosed” and “unfair” repeatedly

Fiscal healers are cautioned to take the following precautions if planning to dispense this same treatment option:

  • Call out the National Guard and have them move all state owned buses to flooded areas where they cannot be used
  • Tow any new high end Mercedes or Corvettes parked about town, as they belong to the union leaders spreading the flu
  • Call the undisclosed location, and offer money to owners to house legislative refugees there until new special elections are held to replace them
  • Tell the media that someone coordinated the whole thing from Wasilla,Alaska and give them plane tickets
  • Pass out free Obama T-shirts to crowds so they know protests are over
  • Schedule and announce Lady Gaga will appear immediately in a neighboring town and there will be more T-shirts
  • Set up a training day for teachers so they will understand their pink slips
  • Tell students that they will need to make up two days for every day their teachers are out… and provide them picket signs that say “Get back to work!”

This advice meets the new Obama guidelines for preventative care, and if the kids aren’t in school how the heck is Michelle going to be able to direct what they eat?
