“If you’re not catching flak you’re not over the target”
Are we living in a
nation full of retards?
Are we all now so retarded that we allow the Media to
emotionally push us in whatever direction they happen to choose? Take the ‘knives
on planes’ debate. To hear the media talk, the TSA and their decision to allow
small pocket knives onto planes again is very close to treason. Left leaning
outlets like MSNBC and ABC would have you believe that the minute these small
pocket knives are allowed back on board, some stewardess is sure to have her neck
slashed! Give me a break. In a town next to me, the police recently stage a
live shooter scenario at a local school. Even though the odds of such an
incident happening are 1 in 143,000! (I’d
wager that kids are much more likely to be hit by some mom or dad who’s talking
on a cell phone while driving through in a school zone). People! You need to
quite letting these idiots on TV influence logical thinking processes. OK? Now
as to the suspension of that young boy who fashioned a ‘gun’ out of a pop tart.
Well, hey! That was more than justified.
destroy the US
Who is saying such things? Is it those crazy old
Republicans? I’m sure they’re still desperately clinging to the hope of saving
all those rich Corporations at the expense of the poor and down trodden. Why
just the other day, our President assured a scared Nation that everything is
looking up! Obama has made it crystal clear that the only thing holding the
economy back IS THOSE DAMN REPUBLICANS! Were it not for those insane Right
Wingers, this country’s 17 trillion dollar debt would like vanish almost
overnight. (And, we can all make sure that happens by voting a straight
Democratic ticket in 2014)!
Once both houses are in the hands of the Democrats, our
illustrious President can forge ahead with His plans to create a set of vast
new entitlement bureaus that will allow his vision of Big Mamma Government or BMG to come to fruition.
Uh, hold one a sec – a friend just informed me that it was not
the Republicans who said ObamaCare will wreck the nation; it was a statement
issued by the General Accounting Office. Sorry, my bad….
OK, so how long will inflation
A key concept that underpins the many plans by Senate to deal
effectively with the National deficit depends heavily on interest rates remaining
low. The mantra in Washington
is that as long as that continues; we can all ‘party on dude’.
If, or should I say when, those rates begin to creep upwards,
a whole new reality will quickly settle over the land. Consider this. Last year
our government forked over $220 billion (that’s 18 billion per month) just to pay
the interest on our debt. That’s about $227 out of every taxpayer’s pocket. And,
at the current rate of increase in borrowing, our nation will be looking at a staggering
yearly figure of 1 trillion in interest
payment alone with most of those payments going over to Asia.
And, that is at current interest rates. We are in a trap and it’s a fact
that as we continue to borrow more and more (above and beyond) what we make, the
interest rates will begin to climb higher.
And, even modest 1.8 percent increase would have potentially catastrophic consequences
for our economy.
I sure hope you wake up soon.
