The Obama’s transformation of our national
economy is working precisely as planned. Before he and his cohorts are
finished, governmental power will have increased to an extent that even
president will seem prudent in his actions and policies.
Of course, the economy will be in the toilet for years to come, but...
What is even more ludicrous (if possible...) than the spectacle of our
political “leaders” and pundits declaring that the way to economic
prosperity is via ratcheting up our debt by trillions of dollars is the
faux “outrage” these
people spew whenever a
camera slides in their direction. For example, we have the comment from
Iowa’s own Senator Charles Grassley that some of the folks at AIG
should “commit suicide
never voted for the
guy...] Then there’s ol’ Barney
Franks self-righteously demanding
that those who received bonuses with taxpayer money be outed so the mob
can take action against them. The sick chorus of statists and
collectivists yammers on about $165 million while ignoring the trillions
they are stealing from us...and the trillions more they intend to rip from our pockets in the near future.
Sadly, these diversionary, sleight-of-hand tactics work too well. The average
American is eagerly thrusting out his hand for his share of the promised government
goodies while simultaneously demanding the heads of a handful of
bankers who were merely more successful in gorging themselves at the
State’s trough. No irony there, of course.
Nor should anyone be surprised that the very
folks in Congress who passed the unconstitutional laws and promulgated
the rights-violating regulations that led to the present financial
debacle are the most vocal in decrying “capitalism” and “greed” and
“freedom.” Responsibility? These black-hearted yahoos wouldn’t admit
their role in this mess for anything. No, no. Not their
The funhouse, of course, doesn’t end with the blaggards who are
slitting our throats declaring their innocence while covered in our
blood. No. They compound injury with insult by attacking the rich then
handing those very same “villains” untold billions of our dollars
without accountability. They twist the knives in our wounds by weeping
for the “poor” and the “middle class” while mugging us and insuring
that those who can least afford it will face higher prices for food,
for energy, for health care, for
education, for housing, and virtually everything else we buy.
And — I’ll bet about any amount of money — those self-same “poor” and
“middle class” citizens will vote in nearly every single one of the
felons who are robbing them blind.
