What we are up against

Monday I had the luxury of being at my desk doing paperwork and I had Rush Limbaugh’s program going in the background.  He had a 24 year old caller who had taken the Liberal (Leftist, Democrat, Progressive, Socialist, whatever) bait hook, line, and sinker as they say.  He had called in to make the case that a tax cut equated to government spending.  That reducing the tax burden on American corporations was tantamount to welfare for corporations.  Now Barack Obama pulls that crap (“Tax cuts that we didn’t pay for”) I just never thought anyone with half a brain would buy that line. 

Limbaugh picked this young man up at the end of a segment, asked him to hold on through the commercial, and continued to work with him.  Limbaugh failed to make a dent in this guy’s thought process that everything he made, everything you make, and everything Ford Motor Corporation makes, somehow belongs to the government.  I didn’t hear every word and every argument but it was stunning.  No doubt the caller was a product of the public school system.  What is scarier – he may have been voting for three election cycles! 

I can kind of understand why a Professor of Environmental Studies at a University supported by taxpayer funds, working on a grant from government largess, and expecting to retire on a sweet pension would vote Democrat.  It’s in his self-interest.  But how on earth can someone believe after the record of catastrophe accumulated by government that the fruits of your labor are better handled and dispensed by the government?  I mean exactly how many bridges to nowhere do we need?  How many things can we build in West Virginia and name after Ku Klux Klansman Robert Byrd?

  1. Amigo,
    Proof once again that you just can't fix stupid.

    Thw worst thing that was the amendment (not sure which one) that landowners were only eligible to vote. The reasoning for the original clause was that one had to have skin in the game to vote. Now we have clueless morons voting for "free cheese" and have no stake in the game or a cluse as to how things work.

    The proof in that was the 2008 election when a cluseless majority voted for "hope & change" not knowing what was on the menu but voted for it anyway because it sounded good and the candidate sounded cool. Not once was the candidate vetted for the most important job in the world.

    Case closed.

    Now we have these asswipes in charge and the lemmings are running for the cliff all the while blaming any adult that has any reasonable suggestion for a course correction.

    We are screwed my friend. How's your ammo supply?

  2. It is amazing to me that people as old as Nancy Baloney could say things like we have to pass it to see what's in it. Wrong! We have to read it to see what's in it.

    We have let our schools get to the point that students don't do anything they are not required to do. When I was in school, if the teacher sparked an interest, say in George Washington, you went to the library and got a book on George to learn MORE than just whats on the test. Not anymore. If its not on the test, they don't care to know about it. If the test is over, they don't retain anything that isn't on the next test.

    We have to change that, or we will be Greece.

  3. H-Nox - no argument from me.

    10th - it is hard to not think of it as a diabolical conspiracy. That we turn our children over to people who ruin their minds while we work our asses off to pay for them to do so.
