Never Let a Crisis go to Waste

It’s always a crisis of biblical proportions.

TARP, if we don’t pass it the sky will fall and the country will collapse…it passed and the gov. promptly lost over 300 billion…poof, nowhere to be found.   Did it fix things, are we better off?

Bailout of GM, the gov. took 51% ownership of the company.  Did it fix things, are we better off?

Stimulus, 800 billion pork bill that would save the country.  What happened?  Unemployment went up and has yet to come down.  Oh, and each job created by the stimulus package cost taxpayers 278,000 dollars.  Did if fix things, are we better off?

Cash for clunkers, 4,500 dollar rebate for people to trade in their “junk” cars for new ones.  Cost hundreds of millions of dollars.  Did it fix things, are we better off?

Cash for caulkers…too ridiculous to even expound upon.  Needless to say it didn’t fix things, and we are not better off.

No budget, and one continuing spending resolution after another.  Did it fix things, are we better off?

How could I forget the lame ass republicans.  Campaign = 100 million in cuts.  Vote for 60 million in cuts.  Settle for 30 million in cuts.  Did it fix things, are we better off?

Now we have the debt ceiling, if we don’t increase our debt limit we will default and the world will fall apart.  I stinking doubt it!

The jerk offs in our government must think we are idiots.   Scare, scare, scare, that’s the only tactic they know, and they use it well.  Now the republicans are talking about compromise on increased “revenues”…oh wait, that means taxes.  These A-holes better hold the line and not vote for an increase in the debt limit. It’s all smoke and mirrors, a fake crisis like all of the others.  There are more ways this government could save money than you can shake a stick at, yet they won’t do it.  I’ll attack these areas of savings in a not so future post.

Well, I have to sign off, as I am about to reach the limit on my credit card (which is already tough to pay), so I think I’ll beg the credit card company to increase my spending limit…so I can accrue more debt that I can’t pay for.  Ahhh, if the morons in the government actually had to balance their budgets and control spending like the rest of us, we might not be in bad shape…oh wait, they don’t have to worry about it, they will just TAX (increase revenue) us to pay for their irresponsibility.

Bottom line, the government isn’t the answer to anything, the private sector is the answer.  All the government succeeds in accomplishing is making ALL tax paying citizens slaves, working our asses off to pay for their lack of control in spending.  But hey, it’s easy to spend someone else’s money.

    When on does not exist, create it. When one does not have attention, force it into crisis mode.

    crisis (plural: “crises”; adjectival form: “critical”) (from the Greek κρίσις) is any unstable and dangerous social situation regarding economic, military, personal, political, or societal affairs, especially one involving an impending abrupt change. More loosely, it is a term meaning ‘a testing time’ or ’emergency event’.

    • Exactly Corey. I guess with the “fundamental change” they want, everything probably is a crisis, just not the manufactured ones they keep pushing on us.

    I think we need a third party, formed by middle class. Maybe we could call it the Common Sense Party.

    Interesting on how much money it takes to run for office.

    Also find it interesting on how one can retire from an elected position.

    Maybe we should have a virtual House and Senate? A lot of folks tellecomute these days. Instead of working for the lobbyist maybe our elected officials could work for us the people.

    Seems to me if we take the lobbyist out of the equation, then decisions could be made for the good of the people not the greed of the big money.

    just my humble opinion

      Your humble opinion sounds like you’re familiar with the thinking of the Founding Fathers!
