According to the Washington Examiner, “It’s conventional wisdom in Washington to blame the federal government’s dire financial outlook on runaway entitlement spending..” Believe me when I say that only one word needs to be removed from that previous sentence.. Before we begin to dissect this analogy, a few mundane but nonetheless revealing statistics need to be perused..
The OBAMA debt now stands at $14,639,000,000,000.00. When OWEbama was taking the oath, (has he fulfilled the oath??) the debt was $4,247,000,000,000.00 LESS. This “historic” liberal leader managed to add this very impressive total in just 945 days. (Please keep in mind that this $10,000,000,000.00 total that was in place before OWEbama slithered into “Pelosi’s Swamp” was accrued by liberal “leadership” in BOTH Houses and with a moderate fiscal Republican in the Presidency..)
For each and every day that OWEbama has been over at Pennsylvania Avenue, HIS debt has gone up ANOTHER $4,247,000,000.00. The debt went up nearly five trillion under Bush, but it took him and a VERY cooperative liberal House and Senate 2,648 days to do it.. The OBAMA debt goes up by three million dollars a MINUTE. In the time that it took you to read these assembled statistics, another THREE MILLION has been tacked on to OBAMA’S debt.. (All statistics from the LA Times “Top Of The Ticket”) As well today we learned that “new home sales on pace for worst year in history”.. (AP) Compiling more proof of the abject failures of the OWEbama administration becomes easier with each passing day, actually, with each passing moment.. Oops, there goes another three million..
The proper focus is needed at this point so that the logical idea of stopping spending isn’t convoluted by the collectivist convolutionists and contortionists.. The idea of taking Obama’s lustful liberal spending sprees and blaming the entirety of all of it upon “entitlements” falls right into the liberals greasy hands.
The liberals are thinking way down the road on this one, by “way down the road” I mean right about late October of next year, well before the area where they just “kicked the can”.. Entitlements are a part of the picture but they’re are nowhere near the WHOLE picture..
The liberals have massaged and manipulated the discussion that surrounds OBAMA’S debt so that it is swaddled in the comfortable blankets and comforters of “entitlements”. The liberal’s world is DOMINATED by “entitlements”. The recipients of these “entitlements” are OVERWHELMINGLY members of the Democratic voter base.. Those who are perceptive are picking up on the progressive pattern..
“Entitlements” are given to people, mere “spending” goes to obscure and vacuous things such as “infrastructure”, bloodless inanimate objects.. Here the liberal’s faux “compassion” becomes self-evident and has an opportunity to shine. Their self-placement upon the moral high ground and their slimy sanctimony oozes from them as they weep and moan over people like OWEbama’s Aunt Zeituni Onyango..
With the left, if you manage to escape the womb, as the liberals surround you with their rubber aprons and their suction machines right up until the moment of birth, your value to them increases as your value to society lessens.. The more independent you grow up to be, the less “value” you have to the “compassionate” liberals and as well, the more successful that you become, the less “value” liberalism has to you..
“Infrastructure” always seems to need to be explained. Infrastructure is vague and complicated intentionally for both dramatic effect and for the ability to create collectivist confusion.. Pie charts, bar graphs and polysyllabic words all envelop the fascist fog that pollutes the air as the liberals speak in their mesmerizing mysterious totalitarian tones..
Besides, the liberals never want to have to explain anything because to do so would open the door to investigation of the liberal’s wanton waste, fraud and outright deception. Within all of the cracks and crevices constructed within the liberal “infrastructure”, countless billions of dollars disappear never to be seen or accounted for again..
“Entitlements” are people, friendly faces or very sad faces carefully screened and created for the collectivist cameras which end up as deceptive Democratic demagoguery, otherwise known as Democratic political campaign commercials. By focusing solely upon entitlements, the liberals can claim that the Republicans “hate the poor”.. “Hating the poor” also provides the seamless segue for another of the liberals patented depth charges, “class warfare”. (Remember, the liberals don’t hate “rich” people, they hate “rich” people who don’t agree with them..)
If I may give you but ONE example, “infrastructure” is half a million “Scamulous” tax dollars ending up as 1.72 jobs in Nevada’s “green industry”. (Fox News) Never mind that this represents the entire amount of jobs “saved or created” by Obama during his pathetic reign, and never mind that such chicanery would naturally seem to go on in a state run by the Reid crime family.. Never mind that there are so many well documented cases of “Scamulous” tax dollars going to imaginary congressional districts, etc, etc..
Let’s carry the “infrastructure” and the “green industry” analogies farther, shall we?
Why have the liberals invested so much of their “intellectual” stock into the whole GREEN malarkey? Because they have “invested” so much of their PERSONAL stock into these “green” corporations.
Liberal politicians place their progressive portfolios into these “green” adventures, they can craft legislation further funding these forays into fantasy, thereby feathering their own financial nests and the nests of their “rich” friends.. This by any other name is “insider trading”.
Why has the left has invested so much of their “intellectual” stock in this green phantasm? They fully understand the amount of “green” that they not only get to redistribute from the bank accounts of the middle class, but the amount of “green” that they stand to make personally by endorsing it. Just ask Al Gore.. Just ask the “scientists” slaving away on the university campuses, “scientists” that have been proven to be in collusion over their attempts to silence the overwhelming evidence to the CONTRARY, these “scientists” who live off of government grants and subsidies to produce more palpable fiction..
The liberals know that the “green” business comes from their creation of a “crisis”. A “crisis” ALWAYS needs immediate attention and the “immediate attention” is always available from the “impartial” media. Creating a “crisis” is nothing more than “job security” for the members of the left and for the left, creating their OWN “job security” has proven much easier than providing “job security” for the nation’s middle class..
The “conventional wisdom” actually holds that socialist spending is socialist spending.. Where the dollars go isn’t as important as the fact that whenever a liberal is the one doing the spending, the dollars are GONE, never to return..
