I listen to a fair amount of talk radio on a daily basis, basically the entire lineup on Sirius/XM's Patriot Channel.
What usually has me pounding my steering wheel is 'the liberal caller' who phones in to tell the host how wrong us conservatives are.
The one thing that I that always amazes me, is after all the crap that has gone on in this country over the last 3 or so years, what with a massive health care bill, a massive spending bill, and a checked off 'To Do' list of every liberal/progressive/socialist/marxist/populist wet dream, it's all the Repugnican's fault we're in the mess we're in.
I've got a news flash for these morons. Yes. The previous administrations of the last 60 or so years have run debts and deficits. Some bigger or smaller than others. What sets this latest one apart is the fact that in a little over 3 years, our debt is twice what it was during the entire 8 years of the previous occupant of the mansion located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
With all this debt and deficit, a looming economic crisis in Europe, and the fact that for the last 2 years, the labor force has hemorrhaged more jobs than naked camp counsellors at Camp Crystal Lake have blood. Yet we're constantly told this all the fault of the opposition party. Never mind who controlled the coffers for 4 of the last 6 years. Never mind that when you give a trillion dollars of money you don't have to all the fools who helped you pull the wool over the eyes of the American electorate, it's all the fault of the Repugnicans. Nope, nothing to see here, move along...
Nope. We have to get them evil rich guys. We have to give jobs we don't have to people who technically don't exist in the tax system. We can't take any money away from the supposed 99%. Yet the more you look at who they want to tax the shit out of, the more you find out that the very middle class they claim to support, are the very people they are trying to drive to the poor house. I'm still trying to figure out how millionaires and billionaires equates to folks making $250K a year. Maybe I missed that class in public school. But then again, I was educated at a time when they actually taught something other than the touchy-feely crap they put out now.
I read these letter to the editor telling everyone that if we went back to a more Constitutional foundation, then Granny would be pushed off a cliff or Little Sally would starve because there are no more school lunches. Or that entire towns would degenerate into a burning chaos because there wouldn't be any firefighters or police. Special note about the police and fire departments: They are not federally funded and were never supposed to be that way. That's what local property taxes are for. Not federal income taxes. So to insinuate that if we don't get another stimulus package, then blood will run in the streets and every building in town will burn down is pure-d-bullshit.
Get your fingers out of my wallet. You didn't work to earn it, you don't get a piece of the action. You want a new TV or the latest super-computing phone, get your ass a job and go get it yourself. For those who legitimately unable to work, we can work something out. For the rest of you lazy asses who can't be bothered, two words I think sum up how I feel on the subject and one of them begins with the F.
