What I was pondering, before Bill Gates started begging for euthanasia, was the concept of General Welfare.
The Fed runs out of spending money…yet again…on March 27th. This is the latest of our regularly scheduled crises, and the Ruling Class has noticed that America is getting a bit bored with having “EMERGENCY!” screamed in its face. Thus, Obama’s now tacked the other direction with, “we’ve got another ten years, at least”. This is nothing!
He’s doing this because he picked America’s pocket only a few months ago and has no hope of grabbing trillions more. Obama can’t get more money and can’t imagine spending cuts, so obviously debt has switched from treasonous to patriotic. There is no Democratic alternative.
They are trying to get more taxes by “eliminating loopholes and deductions”, and this might work because the Republican Party is stupid and cowardly. The Dems point out that Republicans were trying to close tax loopholes only a few months ago. They of course forget to mention that Republicans offered a simplified tax code in exchange for lower tax rates.
Bah, how can something so familiar and predictable keep being so sickening? Apparently I am incapable of inuring myself to hypocrisy and tyranny.
How do you manage it, human beings?
