“We inherited this economic crisis from the previous administration.” This is the mantra of the Obama Administration for the last 20 months. They want to make everything Bush’s fault and yet, there comes a time when you have to stop blaming someone else for your mistakes. But as usual, Obama keeps playing the “Not my fault” card as if it’s supposed to make all of us poor Americans somehow feel better.
First of all, this isn’t Bush’s fault as Obama would have you believe. The economy is the result of liberal fiscal policies that have been in place since 2006 when they first took over Congress. It is, of course exacerbated by the fact that there were some things that Bush did when he did have a Republican Congress because he wanted to appeal to everyone and govern from the just-right-of-middle. Those things did actually come back and bite George W. in the butt, but they are not the overall abject failure implemented by the Democrats who took over Congress in 2006.
If you want to know why America is in the economic trash dumpster, let’s consider the mentality of the liberal progressives who have put us here.
Liberal Lie #1) Home ownership is a right.
Home ownership is not a right, it is a privilege extended to those who are responsible with their money. People who lie around all day watching TV and waiting for their “guvmint check” to come in are irresponsible people and therefore do not deserve to own a house of their own. Don’t believe me? Take a drive through South-Central Los Angeles and look at the houses. I pick that area because it is where you will see the greatest dynamic. It would be harder to make the point picking some place like Westwood, Pasadena or Beverly Hills. The houses in South-Central that are well maintained and kept looking clean are occupied by people who are responsible – not just with money but with everything. They recognize that it is only through hard work that a person can have anything of value. Even those who are responsible and can’t keep their homes maintained alone have someone to help them. Now look at the houses that are run down with trashed lawns. They are occupied by people who think they are somehow entitled to have someone give them something for nothing. They expect someone else to do the hard work for them. They are lazy individuals who think that work is beneath them and possess the attitude of “like hell I’m going to do that!” The truth is they don’t care. They are irresponsible.
Enter the liberal progressives and their ownership is a right lie. These people go around waving “ownership is a right” in these people’s faces and then through the efforts of pinheads like Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, these lazy entitlement-minded dolts are given loans to buy houses with exorbitant mortgage payments on the idea that in five years these people will magically increase their income and be able to handle the upwardly adjustable mortgage interest payment. When that five years passes and the mortgage goes up, these irresponsible dolts aren’t making more money, they just decide to refinance themselves and put off the inevitable. Problem is, they mortgaged themselves out of their homes and now they expect the government to come along and bail them out. This is a very, very bad idea. It is not the job of the government to bail you out when you get stupid. But Pelosi, Reid, Dodd, Frank and Obama (sounds like a law firm, doesn’t it) all think that is the EXACT role of government – which is why they are liars on that point. If you are stupid and you mortgage yourself out of your home, tough. You made your bed now you lie in it. Don’t expect me to help your stupid, miserable ass get out of trouble.
How was Bush blamed for this? Well, unfortunately, this all began to really snowball under his administration, but the pieces were put into place for this disaster when Bill Clinton was president and before Newt Gingrich and the Republicans took over in 1994. How is it now Obama’s problem? He’s the one who said he was going to fix everything and so far that hasn’t happened and economists are now saying that we may be headed for a “double-dip” recession. Obama and his idiots don’t realize that more spending doesn’t stop a recession. FDR and his idiots didn’t figure it out in the 1930s and Obama is bound and determined to make the same mistakes truth be damned.
Liberal Lie #2) A job is a right.
Yeah, and the sun rises in the north. I actually saw a rally sponsored by progressive liberals that counted among the attendees members of the SEIU – remember them? That bunch of self-centered, arrogant, stuck-on-stupid, mess of morons who backed HRH Obama in the last election actually had people at a rally with signs that read “A job is a right.” Someone want to get that doofus away from the Kool-Aid dispenser? You no more have a right to a job than you do a right to drive a car. Again, a job is a privilege reserved to those who are willing to actually work. Part of this comes from pinhead teachers who think they have a right to tenure so that even the most incompetent dolt can still teach school even though she couldn’t teach a kid to find his own nose.
If you want to have money you have to have a job. The problem is, you shouldn’t have that job if you can’t do it. Do you really want a doctor giving you an appendectomy who isn’t qualified for the job? I don’t like the idea of some D- third-rate hack treating a disease, working on my car, flying me in an airplane or teaching my children and yet these doofuses in the SEIU would rather have cut-rate morons doing high-end jobs because those idiots have a right to a job. Sorry, Captain Herbalife…just because you actually register 98.6 on the Fahrenheit scale doesn’t mean you’re qualified for a job. This all goes back to affirmative action – a dismally ineffective outcropping from the civil rights boneheads who think they can increase workforce competence through federal mandate. It’s another federal policy that needs to be dismantled before someone really gets hurt. Same for unions. People think they’re entitled to money. Truth is, you’re not entitled to money. If you want money, you have to earn it and that means working for it. If you can’t find a job, then volunteer somewhere to get the experience then maybe you can get paid. Schools are turning out graduates who think they’re entitled to a six-figure income and a Mercedes-Benz right out of college. To those petty-minded fools I can only say, “go flip hamburgers at McDonald’s for a while. It’s good for you and it builds character.” Chances are if you’re reading this and disagreeing with any of it, then maybe it’s time you go flip some burgers, clean some toilets, shingle some houses, pour some concrete, lay some asphalt, move some furniture or wait some tables. I’m no worse off for having done all of those jobs at some time in my life to earn money. You do what you have to do to earn money. But I’m guessing someone will find a way to advocate for the lazy bums who don’t want to work and just lie around waiting for the “guvmint check” to come in.
How is Bush to blame for this? He isn’t, but liberals want you to believe he is because he didn’t give away the farm while he was in office. How is this Obama’s problem? He’s the one who let SEIU support him for president – and yes, he even advocated for them while acting like a community organizer. He has bought into their progressive liberal garbage and thinks he can require US companies to come back to America using empty promises and phony threats. He’s is clueless as to what would really bring manufacturing jobs back to America – less government intervention and lower corporate taxes. Of course he’ll never do it because his brain-dead minions think corporations are all evil and that the only way to punish them is through high taxes. If these people could take just one course in business finance, they would see how stupid that idea is. But most of them won’t because they have their heads up their butts and wear a sign that says, “My mind is made up, don’t confuse me with facts.”
Liberal Lie #3) Health Care is a right.
There are only two words in the English Language that can follow that lie and they begin with the letters “BS”. Anybody who tells you that health care is a right is the biggest snake oil salesmen on the planet and he’d sell his own mother to make a buck. You are responsible for your own health. If you choose to eat healthy food, exercise properly and take care of yourself, you won’t need to go to the doctor as often as some shlub who eats fast food three meals a day, doesn’t exercise, smokes, drinks and does drugs.
If anything, health care is a personal responsibility. YOU need to be responsible for your health. All too often parents leave their children to fend for themselves in terms of food and by this I mean they let their kids eat the crap served through school lunch programs. When was the last time you ate lunch at a public school? Chances are not since you were attending one. It’s another government-run agency that provides the least amount of food possible so that there’s enough to go around. This is the fallacy of socialism in action. There is only so much food in a school lunch kitchen and it has to be divided among several hundred students. So the end result is the children get very little food – with much of it being thrown away – and then these kids “pig out” when they get home before sitting down on their lazy butts to play Wii-Box…or whatever the latest video game happens to be.
Then there are adults. As kids we are told to eat our vegetables then when we become adults we say, “I’m grown up and I’ll eat how I damned well feel like it” and immediately we find our clothes don’t fit and we’re 130 lbs. heavier than we were in high school. On top of that, adults smoke, drink, take drugs, have promiscuous sex and then can’t understand why they get diabetes at age 35, lung cancer at 42, liver failure at 47, kidney failure at 53 and are dead before they’re 55. But hey, they were the ones who made the choice and yet, now a bunch of stupid bobble-heads in Washington have made it my responsibility to pay for the unwillingness of others to take better care of themselves. Just like when you couldn’t afford your mortgage, if you don’t take care of yourself properly, I have no sympathy for you. I have even less if you can’t have the decency to take care of your children, but even then, I couldn’t care less about your kids. I make no apologies if this sounds cruel and heartless. There are those who will excoriate me for saying I don’t care about the kids, but frankly, I shouldn’t have to. They aren’t my kids so why does the government feel the need to steal money out of my paycheck to take care of them? Besides, there are kids in this world whose sole existence is because their irresponsible parents wanted another credit from the government in the form of more money. I have my own issues that take up my time. We have churches that are supposed to help…let them help. Just get the government out of my wallet!
How is this Bush’s fault? Who knows, but it’s another issue that progressive liberals will use to blame Bush. They will always twist an issue into making it his fault. How is this Obama’s problem? Obama made sure to strong-arm Congress into passing a health care bill into law that will ultimately bankrupt America, cause a severe decline in the quality of health care in America and see more people dying needlessly because they cannot get treatment. Every other nation in the world that can do so is trying to move away from government-run health care and America is running straight into it – proof that sometimes Americans really are stupid people.
Liberal Lie #4) A Mosque at Ground Zero is Constitutionally Protected
Now before those who are in their mommy’s basements get their Fruit of the Looms in a bunch let me clarify something here. Even as a Reagan Conservative, I recognize that yes, there is a Constitutional Right to build a mosque near Ground Zero. Notice I said, “NEAR Ground Zero.” I recognize, as does everyone else (including Fox News), that the mosque is not being planned for the World Trade Center site. The site of the mosque is, however, only two blocks away and is far too close as is reasonably prudent. The argument among those who oppose the mosque is from a humanitarian stand point. Followers of the cult if islam have a history of attacking then building a mosque on the site of their victory. Look at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem as a prime example. Type the words “Cordoba” and “Mosque” into Google and read about the mosque in Cordoba, Spain – which, by the way is the origin of the name of the projected mosque NEAR the World Trade Center. Building a mosque near the World Trade Center in New York is not about bridge building for muslims – it is about an imam who wants to poke his finger in the eyes of those who lost family members on 9/11/01. It’s about one man’s defiant stance against America and the utilization of his position as a so-called “religious leader” to immortalize himself at the sake of prudence or even common decency. If he were the bridge-builder he claims to be, he would cease his efforts to build so close to the World Trade Center. If he wants his mosque, let him build it elsewhere. But he refuses to do so citing that he has the US Constitution to back him up. There’s an old saying, “Just because you CAN do something doesn’t mean you should.” This is a case of where one man’s selfishness and arrogance is going to inflict more pain on people who have already been hurt by radical islamic fanatics. He’s just one more of the same but is using other means to commit his acts of terror.
How is this Bush’s fault? It isn’t. He has no control over the arrogant, selfish actions of a man who hates the United States and will stop at nothing to aid in its destruction. How is it Obama’s problem? He claims not to be interested in involving himself in “local affairs” yet he had no problem with calling Cambridge Police “stupid” and encouraging Eric “Spineless” Holder to pursue a lawsuit against Arizona’s Immigration Bill. He would have been better off to refrain from saying nothing at all regarding the mosque instead of pointing out that they do have the right to build one then later backpedaling by saying he did not wish to comment on the “wisdom” of building it. I’m beginning to wonder if Obama may be in need of an anti-fungal treatment for his athlete’s tongue he must be getting from sticking his foot in his mouth so many times.
America is in trouble and Obama has done nothing to stop it. He promised that if the stimulus bill were passed, unemployment would not pass 8%. We’ve seen it as high as 10% with numbers suggesting that if we include those who are “underemployed” and those who have given up looking for a job completely, the rate approaches 17%. He claims that his tactics have “saved” jobs but the honest truth is that is not a number that can be measured. There is no way of knowing that “saved” jobs were saved because of his work or because of some other external force. The plan only created temporary jobs for the census bureau. There are a few roads that have seen some major work done, but those were all temporary jobs. So Democrats wanted to extend unemployment benefits to 99 weeks. They got that in spite of their lies that Republicans were blocking that legislation. It should be worth noting that the Republicans only blocked the measure because they wanted to know how it was going to be paid for. The Democrats weren’t willing to disclose that bit of information so that is why the Republicans blocked it. Once the Democrats agreed that it should be paid for and how, the Republicans went along. But to hear the liberal media tell it (and their messiah, Obama) the Republicans were being mean.
It’s time for America to wake up and stop being so damned lazy. We won two world wars, stopped fascism from spreading all over Europe, stopped Communism from taking over the world, put a man on the moon and developed virtually everything that runs this planet. Liberals hate that about America which is why they want to exterminate the nation. So far, with Obama in the White House – mission accomplished.
