“The president of the United States is also on an economically stimulating spending spree, and he’s paying for it with a lien on all the future job and business opportunities that your children will have. This means they won’t have them. I hope that your kids, once they’ve gotten their MBAs, enjoy stocking shelves at the Dollar Store. ” –P.J. O’Rourke, Don’t Vote It Just Encourages the Bastards.
I don’t know about you, but it’s hard to come back to reality after Christmas. We had a month of Hallmark Christmas specials, and more than the usual Christmas cheer in the Malls. This year, Christmas was NOT a dirty word. After the election, half the country went into a stupor of –“Please…let us celebrate something!” And they did. Christmas is just what everybody needed.
Still, there are many families that did not have the usual fun and frolic: Those in homeless shelters, and this guy. Watch this video…it is proof that nothing is going right in Dodge. This man is incredibly intelligent, and honest…kind, sensible…and he’s in a shelter. (Thanks to amfortas for video)
He WANTS to work. I’m sure he could collect welfare, but he wants to work. This is too sad.
Imagine..having three degrees, and you can’t find a job. And to add absurdity on to the top of it, we hear Obama pushing for college education for everyone who wants it every chance he gets. He wants a nation filled with people with degrees…. Why? To keep the liberal university professors working?
So–How do we keep the optimism going in the year ahead? Do we wait with breathless anticipation to find out if we all have to pay MORE taxes next year? Obama is determined to tax the rich. He will never relent. He won’t stop spending….and he will blame the Republicans for the money that will be taken out of the paychecks of those that work…as if the 45 percent that DO work aren’t paying enough.
Nobody is suspicious. If you listen to the experts, 2013 will be the worst in our history…which will give the number 13 all the credit that it is due.
Nobody Wants to look back on these past four years…and there’s certainly not much to look forward to..except the good news: Families will become stronger next year…out of sheer necessity. You never know when that uncle you didn’t get along with, just might give you a job.
But hey…Let’s not think about that…Obama will be coming in from Hawaii to make a speech!
And speaking of Obama…Adam Smith was talking about him a long time ago. …..tell me if this doesn’t just FIT him perfect.
The man of system…is apt to be very wise in his own conceit: and is often so enamored with the supposed beauty of his own ideal plan of government, that he cannot suffer the smallest deviation from any part of it. —Adam Smith
Yep. Hold on to your wallets compadres…Obama IS the system. Hide the eggnog.
