Nobody's Opinion

Megyn Kelly Goes Greece

Nobody Wins

 Megyn  Kelly was beside herself on FOX this morning. Her eyebrows were practically touching the back of her head as she questioned the “expert” (they have experts for everything) on how in the world were we as a country, not going to go off the “cliff” of economic no-return?

How? How? Why…the only way to solve it, said Megyn, is for Social Security to be cut…and people to retire later…otherwise, America is doomed. By the end of the interview, both Megyn and her expert agreed…nothing was ever going to change because no politician would do the unthinkable: reform Social Security.

Well Paul Ryan did, but I guess she didn’t think of him.

But they are right. There are more than 90 million retiring baby boomers in the country who worked hard all their lives, and they feel that since that money was taken OUT of their paychecks, (With no say in it from them.) they deserve it back.  It’s not fair that their S.S. is going to illegals and thier babies. Obama knows this, and he plays to those exact sentiments. Nobody is sure some older people think he is going to save it for them.

Ha. Ha…ha.

The power thieves in Washington have stolen it from them, and now fiscal Armageddon is being created in all our cable networks once again…to convince the “people” that they need to sacrifice some more for the common good.

It’s communism 101, with a big O in the middle, sold with the American flag waving.  

Hey…We didn’t run up that deficit…YOU did, we say!  But…Washington takes our hard earned money and sends it to the great Baal in the sky…and god knows where else.  They are never accountable for any of it.  I remember Secretary Donald Rumsfeld a few years ago announcing that many billions were missing in the defense budget one afternoon.

“We just don’t know where it went.” he said.

And we all sigh, drink our coffee, and work another day. Yet, you try losing a few thousand dollars from the IRS. You will go to jail.

We…put up with it. Tell me…why?

For those of us in the private sector, it’s like being punished twice, for somebody else’s crime. The banks gambled,…and our politicians took OUR money to bail them out, just so that the people who make their money from “dividends” could keep the money rolling in.

—Or so it looks to the poor guy. There are three classes now: Those who live off dividends: those who have to get up and go to work for a paycheck: and those who live off the ones who go to work for a paycheck.  

America, OUR politicians–have  spent way too much money on wars in countries where the normal guy on the street really didn’t see any threat.

Vietnam? Really…what a waste. Iraq? A waste. Afghanistan?  Well, there’s gold in them thar hills, but it’s China that’s getting it.

And…I don’t know if you have noticed, but the war drums are beating again: Children are dying in Syria. All the networks, are showing the devastation…as if we are being programmed to accept the next war, because it’s for the “children.”  This video shows the heavy cost of war, but the end is misleading. Health care is going to cost just as much if not more, than our “wars.” in the long run. Social Security was going to cost just a few million in the beginning. Looked what it morphed into.

The Baby Boomers say: Hey…Before you cut our measly Social Security benefits, cut the stuff you don’t need: Tillions are wasted in fraud. Government workers are getting paid too much, and their pensions are way out of line with the public sector. Even that playing field. Get rid of half of the government agencies that you don’t need. Reform welfare, food stamps, Medicare, get rid of pork. Cut the pay of politicians.

When Steve Jobs went back to Apple, he fired half the employees, and Apple became number one.

Cut the fat. Kick out the U.N., they are a bunch of money-sucking thieves. Get our military out of every country. Let the Europeans fend for themselves.

We need to rebuild.

Unite the people. Cut out this “global-we are one world citizens” stuff.  Put America and its people firstYou can’t help your neighbor if you are starving.

These are simple rules any fool would do… And yet—

History repeats itself. Dictators get into power…and then their people starve. Every President since Ronald Regan has grabbed more power and ended up being more arrogant than the one before.

Power really does corrupt, and we can really see it in Obama eyes with our big screen TV’s.

I once asked a very rich man that I was dating if he ever worried about money.

“Sure…just like you. Have you any idea what it cost to send your children to Harvard? We worry…we just have bigger bills. “

Nobody Thinks that it could be the same old problem. Money is relative.  The rich don’t want to lose their billions either: so they con the politicians to get the masses pay for everything.

Yes, Megyn had that “deer in the headlight” look on her face. Nobody hopes…she was just trying to scare up the ratings. Nobody Says, “Don’t you worry Megyn…you will be…just fine.” It’s the rest of us that have to worry.

  1. Most western country people have a respect and a thanks for the American military actions of the past. In fact the far past. WW11 saw a great America throwing its considerable weight behind the rescuing of freedom from the National Socialist Workers Party of Germany’s military as the single -handed British were just reaching exhaustion. But since then??

    Even through the ‘cold war’ a lot of sabre-rattling was a good enough excuse for having the heavies around. But now?

    America has more ‘fire-power’ than ALL the rest of the world combined. In fact THREE times as much as them all combined.

    And yes, like Batman with his hero-status and batmobile, America cuts a fine figure in the skies, on the roads, on the high seas – and under, and even in space. But…why?

    Just to keep Super-hero status? To appeal to the small aspirational boy or the scaredy-cat little girl that wants a super-hero to gaze upon?

    Do enough Americans know that America has 900 overseas military bases? Crikey there are only 175 odd counties in the world.

    Would Americans feel content with China having 900 overseas bases? How about Russia, even in its truncated condition? Or Switzerland?

    And as that video shows, the cost, every year, is ENORMOUS.

    But the better, most appropriate word is ENORMITY.
