O-buma and the Congressional Theftocrats have sold Americans a bill of goods, and far too few of us recognize the shafting that we are getting from their WelfareHealthCare. This is living proof of their intentions to keep low income single mothers permanently relegated to the federal welfare plantation.
Notice that these nefarious social engineers have created another marriage tax that acts as an economic disincentive for marriage. The mommy staters argue in favor of punishing married people by claiming that two can live together on less that it takes for them to live separately. Understand the reasoning here. First, government should supply each of us according to need. From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs...didn't someone named Marx say this?
Second and most important, they have acted to ensure that those of us who have behaved responsibly and prudently have our earnings confiscated to subsidize those who behave irresponsibly and imprudently. There is something seriously amiss with this system of federally subsidized fecklessness. We offer economic incentives for breeding TANF recipients, and we punish those who plan intelligently and live within their means.
Slackers pay nothing and get a lot; worker bees pay a lot and get the green weenie. The bees have it right. When their food supply dwindles to such low levels that the colony is threatened, they stop feeding the drones. One can gain sobering insights from observing the natural world.
That we are a socialist nation hardly bears repeating, but that we are also totalitarian is most often revealed anecdotally so that the nationwide pattern is obscured. Political liberty is unavailable in nations wherein citizens are prosecuted and persecuted for thoughtcrime.
The Head Hypocrite and his minions Feckless Barney Frank, Red Harry Reid, and Pelosi the Pinko are heaping criticism on the Wall Street crowd. It is that same crowd that has been lining the pockets of Theftocrats for years. People who bite the hand that feeds them are genuinely shameless. Just take a look at what the government unions have done to New Jersey.
The same dim bulbs who invented Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Community Reinvestment Act that collapsed our economy have profited handsomely from those agencies. The heavy hand of government is expensive when it regulates and taxes free trade.
At first glance, giving government the privilege of stripping Americans of their citizenship for committing acts of terrorism may sound good; however, who defines an act as terroristic? How long will it be before the likes of someone such as Eric Holder, the head of the department of injustice, defines it such that it means those who support the Second Amendment?
Do you like to use the Web? Enjoy it while you are still able to do it. Does anyone remember hearing the old lie that "I'm from the government, and I'm here to help," just before it hit the fan? If you believe that the government's motivation is "ensuring fair competition and preserving a free and open Internet," let me sell you some hurricane proof real estate in Key West. The way that they ensure competition is exemplified by SEIU and the Postal Service.
May your gods be with you.
