Another cheery forecast.

This time from Unc:
They want Free Federal Moneytm for pork projects in their district, they want free health care, they want social security, they actually think the $600 rebate they’re getting in a couple months is a good thing, they want the .gov to write a big check and bail out their mortgage company, they want a puppy, they want to suckle at the .gov tit. It’s true. Deal with it. We’re the minority and that is that. Put on your big boy pants and deal with it.
It echoes what Kit wrote earlier:
America does not want what I want out of government. America loves big government. They don’t care about taxes and punishing producers and the non-scalability of things like health care and school systems. America wants Big Brother to make them feel safe. America wants Nanny Government to give them money, food, health care, and whatever else America thinks it’s entitled to loot, courtesy of the producers.

The "rebate" isn't even that...it's an advance on next year's refunds. Yup, just like those shady payday loan places that also specialize in the resale of stolen goods.

And people wonder why I say "Southerner" rather than "American"...

Unfortunately, there is no place left to run is there?
All we can do is try to go down destructively enough to make sure there is nothing left behind for the weasels to benefit from.

I'm actively lobbying my son for no grandkids, because there isn't going to be anywhere for them to live.

I think Americans have been fed a low-ball diet of false choices where candy canes, whipped-cream and placebos feature prominently. There's a Party that's been promising free stuff and dumping loss-leaders to saturate and earn market-share they can't sustain - they will cause a collapse.

Hey, I HAVE a puppy and it's not time to get the second one yet. Oh, and I actually think that the $600 isn't a bad thing. I just would rather see them cut spending in order to afford it. Well, ok I think that MY getting the $600 is a good thing, after all it's my freakin money.


I have said many times before to people that I would much prefer to pay a bill for my share of various items, with the option to opt out of things that I disagree with. Talk about representation of the people. If you really support it YOU get to pay for it.

This is the crap that my ancestors came to America to get away from. Too bad we couldn't have shut the door around 1840 or 1850.

As georgeh said, there's no place left to go...

No place left to go is right... I want space travel and some unpopulated worlds. When you think about it, we'd leave a lot of this type of crap behind because people trying to settle a new planet wouldn't have the time for the BS we're seeing nowadays. Besides, big government teat sucklers wouldn't have the self-sufficency to leave the home planet for someplace new.
