Excuse me a moment while I wipe this tear from my eye... There... Ah... (*sniff
I can’t decide if these are tears of laughter or sadness. Both, I
suppose. After all, what is one to think when, hard on the heels of a
trillion-plus dollar (interest included) “stimulus” bill that our
Messiah-in-Chief just signed, he has the temerity (idiocy? cupidity?
stupidity?) to call for “cutting the deficit”!
Pay no attention to that man behind the screen!
Ah, yes! The best way to “balance” the budget, to be “responsible,” to
“pay-as-we-go” is to create a spending bill that dwarves all previous
exercises in legalized theft. Not only that, the Magician-in-Chief
proposes nearly a half-trillion more
dollars in spending this year.
Yeah, man! That’s the way to reduce our debt! Spend even more money that the State does not have!
Oh, sure. the Liar-in-Chief says that when his magic beans grow into a
giant stalk, the tax revenues will stream into the coffers of the State
and bridge any shortfalls between expenses and credits. By golly, this
“new” economy will do what has never been accomplished in the history
of mankind: we will be prosperous beyond our wildest dreams through the
largesse of spending our way to wealth! After all, nearly every
prominent yapping head on TV, radio, and elsewhere assures us that it
is consumer spending
that is the primary economic engine of our nation. Not such silliness as production
of wealth that the producers
can then invest in other wealth producing
ventures which can then be used to buy consumer goods. Oh, no. Oh, no.
Spending first and foremost. Spend what you haven’t produced. That’s
how you produce things.
Barely a month in office and already the Hypocrite-in-Chief has produced a wealth
of nonsense that towers above all the frakking B.S. of any and all of his equally immoral and destructive predecessors.
Sorry. There I go again...
