Bloviating Zeppelin: The Federal Government: Give Me MORE Of Your Money!

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

The Federal Government: Give Me MORE Of Your Money!

My guess would be that, as with most American citizens and not illegal invaders or freeloaders, you've had to cut back in your purchases in consideration of the current economy.  

You've likely had to pare down on eating out, you've starting "brown-bagging" it to work again or more frequently, stopped any number of magazine subscriptions, sold some items locally or on e-Bay, had to cut back on the type and amount of food purchased, cut way back on entertainment.  You've likely had to entirely revamp your lifestyle and re-think or re-examine your fiscal life; where you are now and where you wish to be in the foreseeable future.  And mostly ponder: can I make it?  Can my family make it?  And worst yet, likely some of you have actually lost your jobs.

You've not only had to ensure you don't spend more, you've had to make actual cuts in your budget; some of them might be rather Draconian in nature.

Not so the Federal Government.

Oh no.  Now, the average federal employee makes $71,000 a year -- $30,000 more on average than the private sector or other state and local government scales.

How about you?  Do you make $71K annually?

The federal government decided to raise the ceiling on "tolerable debt."  Now your federal government proposes to raise the debt limit potentially up to $1.9 TRILLION dollars.

What's your debt limit?  Can you decide to arbitrarily print your own money if you don't feel like cutting spending?

Further, the IRS is licking its chops in anticipation of biting deeper into more American wallets and, in anticipation of this -- in a recession, mind you! -- is hiring hundreds more employees.

It is simply fiscal insanity.

No sane person can possibly think you can SPEND your way OUT of a recession.  

TARP hasn't worked but -- oh no! the sky is falling we have to enact TARP immediately or it all  will fail! -- and yet, all the things promised to be solved by TARP haven't been.

All the things promised to be solved by the BILLIONS in Porkulus haven't been.  Further, NO ONE can account for the money spent.

And Mr Obama wants to enact a second Porkulus.

Insanity, ladies and gentlemen.  The sheerest of insanity.  OR.  More steps in the purposely-plotted road to the Cloward-Piven Strategy.

You really haven't any idea, America, just what kind of monster you've elected.

This household has pared back as far as we can.

But our government is a profligate spender.

How much longer before the revolution?

Not much terribly longer at this rate, I'm envisioning. 2010 will actually be quite the enlightening year on many levels, I project.

The sad thing is that legislations is coming down the pike that we would hope could be repealed, but even if 2010 is a great year for the loyal opposition, it is a heck of a lot harder (ususually) to repeal a stupid law than it is to enact it.
