The current breed of pol is quite amazing – doesn’t matter which party. Though, there are a few of a new breed that might actually care. Most are of the tribe of the Shi Thead. Many suffer from Cranial Rectal Inversion – or CRI. I mean, how hard is for one to step back and see that the more government does the worse our economy grows. While it is true that some poor individual may not get some deserved service, it is more true that the masses are getting run over by the bureaucratic steam roller. Who cares about us – the masses, that have to pay under duress, for the steam rolling??? Want more jobs, you tribe of the Shi Thead? Get started dismantling the BBS and then we might actually be able to plan to bring more people back to work.
The tribe of the Shi Thead pols can’t seem to look up and see that the more they do the worse it gets. It is obvious, from a macro-economic view, that the trajectory of the economy is inversely related to the growth in government. It is really obvious the last three years since the bailout has begun. All of the promised economic miracles that were promised if the gov to action have failed – miserably. They have us, the masses, in a hole and demanding that we keep digging. Which one of us, even from our disadvantaged hole, can’t see that we should stop digging. Adding more government BBS is not going to get us back on top of a firm economic footing. All we want is to go to our kid’s soccer games and hit the Big Mac on our way home. But no, soccer is demeaning to the losing side and a Big Mac is unhealthy. Do I really need some Pol or Bureaucratic smuck to tell me that the loser feels bad? Do I need some Pol to tell me that it would be better to eat a healthy meal at home? Wouldn’t I love to live the Leave It to Beaver life style? I could if it didn’t take two incomes and then some to pay for all the taxes that the various govs extract from all layers of society. I would not eat at the Big Mac if I could stay home and cook for my kids. But at over 50% tax burden on the average family who can???
My husband and I own a small biz. Lucky us. Want to trade?? Employees actually ask to be laid off so that they can collect 99 weeks of unemployment. Who knows what workers comp., unemployment tax, FICA, SUTA, FUTA and now the new Obama Care is going to cost. We would love to hire more people, but what is it going to cost? We would love to add new products, but who can navigate the Bureaucratic BS (BBS) to get them approved? Want more jobs, you tribe of the Shi Thead? Get started dismantling the BBS and then we might actually be able to plan to bring more people back to work. While you’re at it, do something about tort reform. How much time do we waste and how many decisions are based on the likely hood of being sued. If you are in biz, it is not a question of if, but when.
Yeah, I know, I’m just whining. The gov is good, I know. At least that’s what I’m constantly told by all of the PSA’s that the Propaganda Press keeps putting out. What news media doesn’t constantly remind me of this? If the Pols and Bcrats want to concern themselves with my self-esteem, quit telling me that to lose a soccer game is bad for my self-image. Quit telling me we should play and not keep score. If they are really concerned about my self-esteem, quit telling me that I should do anything, as if I am not smart enough to know what is good for me. Do they think I am going to start smokin’ dope if it were legalized? Do they think I am going to ram my head into a brick wall if I don’t have on a helmet while riding my bike to work (because I can’t afford the gas). I mean, how dumb to the Pols, Bcrats and Damn-do-gooders think I really am. Get them out of my face and I just might feel better about myself – and for that matter, everyone else. And besides, if I want to kill my self while on a bicycle smokin’ a joint who’s biz is it of theirs. I didn’t ask you to take care of me in the first place. Maybe if you would stop trying to take care of me, I might make better decisions. But hey, if the net is under the wire, maybe I’ll just go for a spin on the “high” d/rope.
But alas, maybe the pols aren’t of the tribe of the Shi Theads. Maybe they are right. Maybe we the masses do need someone to take care of us. After all, WE KEEP RE-ELECTING THEM.
