So Glad He Lost
USNews reports of Senator John Kerry (D-MA) speaking at a breakfast recently, sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor. He speaks of what a good job Washington DC has done to head off the economic problems this country, and the world, have experienced.
“We’ve come back,” he says of the nation, Wall Street, and the economy. “This is an amazing resurgence.”
Hmmm… last I’ve heard, unemployment was still very high, credit very hard to get, and home foreclosures are still at near-record levels.
They go on to say:
It wasn’t a slam at the Tea Party movement and those upset at Washington as much as a frustration he feels that Congress and the president aren’t getting the credit he thinks they deserve for pulling the country out of a second depression
Oh, believe me, Senator, I’m giving the Imperious Doofus, Nancy Pelosio, and Dingy Harry, as well as all their cronies like you, all the credit for the damage that things like the Health Control law is doing. Not to mention the lack of any perceivable benefit from the Porkulus deal a.k.a, Barack Obama’s Very Large Stimulating Package. I would contend that the economy has not gone into full out Depression in spite of you and your leftists buddies doing all they can to bring it on.
Kerry thinks there is a “comprehension gap,” or we dirty peons out here driving our pickup trucks just don’t get how much help they have been with the bailouts, stimuli, and Health Control. Maybe Kerry could explain it to us at a sixth grade level?
But he said that the D.C.-directed attacks are hypocritical, since many of those attacking Washington spending presumably want to keep their Social Security and Medicare and want Washington to play a big role in the Gulf Oil cleanup. “There’s a huge contradiction on a daily basis,” he said.
There might be some of that, granted. But overall, I really think the good Senator is missing the point: Washington is spending too much money, too much money that we do not have.
Social Security and Medicare programs are promises that have been made to millions of people. Too many people are depending on that promise. Ideally, I would love to see a complete revamping of those programs, eventually all but eliminating them in favor of private accounts of some fashion. This would take a long time to work in, as we simply cannot cut off people in the middle.
As far as it goes, the problem is not so much current programs like Social Security, but proposed things that they keep wanting to foist upon the American public. Things like that Health Control law, that really needs to be repealed as soon as possible, or struck down as unconstitutional. Or all the Energy/Climate controls they wish to enact, all to control a “poisonous” substance (carbon dioxide) that appears more and more to have nothing to do with global temperatures. And all of these items will require an ever-increasing level of taxation to maintain, which would hobble our economy for decades.
So, Mr. Kerry, please stop it with the government programs and trying to take total control of as much as possible. We all know that is what you and your friends want, after all. We are just here to try to stop you from achieving it.
