Good Enough for Government Work?

April 14th, 2011

Air traffic controllers sleeping on the job: Good enough for government work.

TSA frisking children: Good enough for government work.

President Obama’s budget speech of 4/13/11: A disgrace. This pack of lies, illusions and evasions is not even good enough for government work.

The president engaged in class warfare of the most vile sort. The rich have to “give back a little more” he said. As if they got from the government what they should now “give back.” This guy is a Hugo Chavez wanna-be.

So our socialist president wants to close an annual deficit created by his party’s runaway, drunken spending spree, an increase of over $1.0 Trillion per year so far by increasing taxes on the “rich” who are defined to earn over $250,000 per year.

Just a little inconvenient fact: “According to Internal Revenue Service data, the entire taxable income of everyone earning over $100,000 in 2008 was about $1.582 trillion. Even if all these Americans—most of whom are far from wealthy—were taxed at 100%, it wouldn’t cover Mr. Obama’s deficit for this year.” (WSJ -4/14/11)

Unless the republicans and democrats are able to peel back at least $1.6 Trillion in annual spending — right now — we’re headed for a hyperinflation-depression such as the world has never seen. But maybe that’s what the dem-socialists are looking forward to — social justice in the form of everyone being equally impoverished and the government feeding everyone with rations of gruel, delivered at the point of a gun.

The reality is that the current crisis is the product of years of political irresponsibility accelerated to light-speed by Obama, the Sun God’s delusions over the past two and a half years.

In his speech the President said “this isn’t the country I grew up in.” That’s true. He’s destroying that country by his and the actions of his own party in government.
