From a political email:
*** begin quote ***
Trillions of dollars have been stolen from U.S. taxpayers.
You and I, right now, are seeing the worst plundering of a country’s wealth in the history of civilization, led by an out-of-control Federal Reserve.
But you and I together CAN put a stop to it all.
*** end quote ***
Can we? I’m not so sure of that.
National debt of 16T$. Unfunded liabilities of between 20 and 200 T$. Deficits in the T’s of $ for as far as the eye can see.
The immorality of “free stuff”, the dumbing down of the electorate, and the rampaging welfare / warfare state make me very pessimistic.
I’ve blogged about the 52% who are net takers from the 48% who are the net makers. How can those “dining on the largess” ever be out voted?
No, like the advice I gave Holy Mother Church, we have to just stop playing along.
Like the little red hen, we just don’t make the bread for everyone else to eat.
Then, we can get back to basics.
Without the “overhead”.
If the politicians and bureaucrats would lead the charge into battle in the various war they want us to fight, then at least we’d thin the herd.
How else can we get rid of these parasites and tics? Can’t jump out of the water and slam back in like the whale in that insurance commercial. Has to be a way?
