The Nutshell

“When the people find that they can vote themselves money,
that will herald the end of the republic.”

– Benjamin Franklin

Almost 50% of the populace are reliant on the Government’s graces. That’s the end.

Unless, the people wise up and take the bitter pill of responsibility.

But what are the chances these days in an entitlement society where a near majority expect other people to pick up part or all of their check.

Where Health care is now “a right”.

It’s someone else’s money. They have to earn it, and you deserve. It has to be taken from them and given to you. And that’s only “right”.

You don’t care. YOU NEED IT. YOU WANT IT.

You can’t LIVE without it.

So anyone who wants to take away your candy is a “bad man”.

Sacrifice is not in your nature. You aren’t your grandparents, who were part of the generations that sacrificed but then also created this mess. Oh, sure it was out of good intentions. But now that’s just the road to socialist hell.

And don’t expect the government to reform itself. They aren’t there for the money, but the power that the money brings to them.

And they are growing in power everyday.

So you have the incestuous drug addict scenario I laid out years ago.

The people are addicted to the “free” money they believe they must have. The Politicians are addicted to the power promising (or fear mongering) that money gets them that power.

So two co-dependent drug addicts sink the ship for the rest of us.

And the ones who protest, are the “extremist” “domestic terrorist” “crazies” that no one likes.

Chris “tinkle up my Leg” Matthews: ‘When you look at Cruz you can see the insurgent right in all its indignant victimhood,’

If you remember what Speaker Pelosi said in July 2010:

“Let me say that unemployment insurance… is one of the biggest stimuluses (sic) to our economy. Economists will tell you, this money is spent quickly. It injects demand into the economy, and it’s job creating. It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name.”

So unemployment is good for everyone!

The adults in a crowd are the bad guys in a nation of drug-addicted children who will lash out at you viciously if you try and take their candy away or expect them to go on a diet.

They want what they want when they want it and they want it now!!!

Obama: “I don’t want to hear the same old stuff about how America can’t afford to invest in the things that have always made us strong. Don’t tell me we can afford to shut down the government, which cost our government billions of dollars, but we can’t afford to invest in our education system,” he said in a speech.

So cutting spending is only about cutting HIS agenda items and the items that most hurt YOU. Not which best benefit you. The only benefits he wants is even more power and control.

Obama “reiterated a shared principle that we should focus first and foremost on how we can grow our economy and create good jobs with good wages for middle class families,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said aboard Air Force One.

And look how well it’s work so far… 🙂

Wait until the full weight of ObamaCare crushes the economy.

But never fear the Hyper-Partisan is here, it will be the Republicans/Tea Partys/Big Insurance’s Fault!

Not the fault of the lawmakers who exempted themselves from it.

No, they are “good” and too proud and elite for that.

But will the people be smart enough to figure this out.

NO.

Drug Addiction is a very nasty beast. It clouds your better judgment.

Besides, do you want to say to your kids and grand kids, “Whoops! Sorry, we screwed up and now we’ll all have to sacrifice so that YOUR grand kids will have a better life. Not YOU.”

Not a chance in Socialist Hell!!!

So the death spiral will continue.

And that’s the way I see it.

Obama: “We need a budget that is responsible, that is fiscally prudent, but a budget that cuts what we don’t need, closes wasteful tax loopholes that don’t create jobs, freeing up resources to invest in the things that actually do help us grow, things like education and scientific research and infrastructure – roads, bridges, airports,” he said.

A ‘responsible budget’ wouldn’t spend more than we take in. Do you think that will happen?

HELL NO!

‘wasteful tax loopholes’ aka tax increases on rich people and companies to pay from the increased spending, which COSTS jobs and lowers the revenue coming in so they have do even more of it. After all, you wouldn’t want to be seen as being favorable to “greedy” corporations after all…

Socialist eventually run out of other people’s money. But by then the people are decimated.

wasteful were all those “non-esssential” jobs during the shutdown. Wasteful is 15 Different Food Stamp Programs. But every one them is “essential” to someone’s agenda or someone’s pocket. The waster is also in your neighbor’s yard, not yours.

Wasteful is ObamaCare and it’s Commodore 64 website.

But since the Democrats are still pissed off about the Sequester (a 2% cut in an increase in spending) what do think they say about REAL cuts: ARMAGEDDON!

And The Republicans: The toothless, let’s just get along, “I’m not a racist” Please love me!, I don’t like the Tea Party Either crowd?

‘Nuff Said.

The Echo Chamber

…the most astonishing dance step in the post-shutdown shuffle might be the president’s call to “stop focusing on the lobbyists and the bloggers and the talking heads on radio and the professional activists who profit from conflict” and instead “grow this economy, create good jobs, strengthen the middle class, educate our kids, lay the foundation for broad-based prosperity and get our fiscal house in order for the long haul.”

In other words, all those people who disagree with HIM and THEM. You should only listen to their “echo chambers”…:)

Michael Ramirez Cartoon

Pretty business-friendly, right? But the friendliness isn’t reciprocated. The Federal Reserve’s beige book survey of businesses on Wednesday pointed a sharp finger at the devastating effects of ObamaCare, with employers cutting workers’ hours or laying off employees because of the law.

The Dallas Fed reported one business respondent describing signed contracts in which a temporary employee is made full-time, but will later be hired permanently (but part-time) when ObamaCare is implemented.

Businesses aren’t forced into such absurd, unproductive acrobatics because of something Sen. Ted Cruz or the Tea Party did. Years of the worst economic recovery in U.S. history didn’t happen because of a recent, brief government shutdown.

They happened because, from the waste of a trillion dollars on a stimulus that didn’t stimulate, to the hyper-regulatory Dodd-Frank financial overhaul that preserved “too big to fail,” to the more-hated-by-the-day ObamaCare, this president’s Big Government ways are keeping America down.

The budget deal failed to stop the train wreck that is ObamaCare, ignored the nation’s entitlement crisis and kicked the debt can down the road. But lawmakers did manage to take care of their own.

President Obama insisted throughout the budget showdown that he wouldn’t negotiate over reopening the government or the debt ceiling. He said he’d accept nothing more than a “clean bill.”

Clean, apparently, is in the eye of the beholder in Washington. The debt deal Obama signed did reopen the government and suspend the debt ceiling entirely until early February.

But the bill included several sweetheart deals. While modest compared to the normal sort of federal pork, it nevertheless shows where lawmakers’ priorities are.

Among other provisions, this “clean” debt bill:

• Adds $2 billion for construction work on the Olmsted Locks and Dam on the lower part of the Ohio River. That’s an increase of 276% over what had been appropriated for this project. By an odd coincidence, much of this money will be spent in Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s home state. The Senate Conservatives Fund dubbed it the “Kentucky Kickback.”

• Hands $174,000 over to Bonnie Englebardt, widow of the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg. Never mind that she’d been married to Lautenberg for just nine years when he died, or that it was his second marriage, or that Lautenberg’s net worth was upwards of $116 million when he died.

• Promises federal workers a 1% raise starting in January, in addition to providing back pay for the two weeks they were off due to the shutdown. Too bad for all those private sector workers who will see their pay and hours cut next year thanks to ObamaCare.

• Gives the Transportation Department $450 million more to repair flood-damaged roads in Colorado.

• Devotes $3.1 million for a Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board. This board, unfortunately, has nothing to do with protecting Americans from ObamaCare’s violations of privacy and civil liberties. It’s meant to ensure that federal anti-terrorism efforts don’t cause discomfort to anyone at home.

Meanwhile, the deal left ObamaCare alone, except for one meaningless tweak, and did nothing to rein in the other runaway entitlement programs. Worse, it totally ignored the nation’s long-term debt crisis.

Obama might consider all this a victory. But the country is the poorer as a result.(IBD)

But whenever the president rehearses the ‘parade of awfuls’ that befell the country due to the temporary shutdown, remember this: Under orders from Harry Reid, Obama refused to negotiate with Republicans to prevent the shutdown from beginning, and threatened to veto virtually every single Republican bill that would have ended the standoff or mitigated its impact. He bears much responsibility for what just happened. He’s the President of the United States, not a helpless bystander who floats above the DC morass. He is DC.

The mini lecture about civility and name-calling was simply precious. During the showdown, a top Obama spokesman called Republicans suicide bombers, arsonists and kidnappers (and their favorite: “Hostage takers”)…in the span of a single interview. The invective hurled at Republicans by Democrats far outweighed anything elected Republicans said about Democrats. (Townhall)

But at least THEY got theirs. The elites got what they wanted. And it’s the “other guy’s fault”.

Big Government is good. Bigger Government is Better.

And that’s what matters in the end.

So they’ll demand Government fix it and we can propose EVEN MORE government as the solution!!!

The Cave-In Begins

House Republicans have sent the White House a revised proposal to lift the debt ceiling for six weeks, as well as reopen government through December 15th, which was their original spending proposal before the partial shutdown. The revised GOP plan reflects the demands Obama made in a meeting with House GOP Leaders on Thursday. It also reflects the unwillingness of the DC GOP to face a fiscal showdown with Democrats.

‘Nuff said

 

Inarticulate

Townhall: Obama, criticized by Republicans for his unwillingness to negotiate over the debt ceiling, also said that beyond the immediate harm, there were larger issues at stake for future presidents and for democracy.

“This is not just for me. It’s also for my successors in office, whatever party they’re from. They shouldn’t have to pay a ransom either for Congress doing its basic job. We gotta put a stop to it,” he said.

Obama acknowledged that he was at a disadvantage in the public relations battle because asking lawmakers to raise the debt ceiling “is a lousy name” that voters can come to equate with authorizing more debt.

“It is not raising our debt,” he said. “This does not add a dime to our debt.”

‘RISK OF A VERY DEEP RECESSION’

As if the Recession for the last 5 years+ isn’t  “deep”

And remember kiddies that raising the debt limit doesn’t raise the debt!!!

Orwell couldn’t do better.

“You don’t get a chance to call your bank and say, ‘I’m not going to pay my mortgage this month unless you throw in a new car and an Xbox.'” he said.

Yeah, just raise my credit line so I can just spend even more. It’s not like I’m increasing my debt or anything. 🙂

When in debt, raise the credit limit of what you can spend so that you aren’t making more debt!!! 🙂

So in the face of this babble…

Thomas Sowell: If the continued existence of mathematics depended on the ability of the Republicans to defend the proposition that two plus two equals four, that would probably mean the end of mathematics and of all the things that require mathematics.

Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, John Boehner, epitomized what has been wrong with the Republicans for decades when he emerged from a White House meeting last Wednesday, went over to the assembled microphones, briefly expressed his disgust with the Democrats’ intransigence and walked on away.

We are in the midst of a national crisis, immediately affecting millions of Americans and potentially affecting the kind of country this will become if ObamaCare goes into effect — and yet, with multiple television network cameras focused on Speaker Boehner as he emerged from the White House, he couldn’t be bothered to prepare a statement that would help clarify a confused situation, full of fallacies and lies.

Boehner was not unique in having a blind spot when it comes to recognizing the importance of articulation and the need to put some serious time and effort into presenting your case in a way that people outside the Beltway would understand. On the contrary, he has been all too typical of Republican leaders in recent decades.

When the government was shut down during the Clinton administration, Republican leaders who went on television to tell their side of the story talked about “OMB numbers” versus “CBO numbers” — as if most people beyond the Beltway knew what these abbreviations meant or why the statistics in question were relevant to the shutdown. Why talk to them in Beltway-speak?

When Speaker Boehner today goes around talking about the “CR,” that is just more of the same thinking — or lack of thinking. Policy wonks inside the Beltway know that he is talking about the “continuing resolution” that authorizes the existing level of government spending to continue, pending a new budget agreement.

But, believe it or not, there are lots of citizens and voters outside the Beltway. And what is believed by those people whom too many Republicans are talking past can decide not only the outcome of this crisis but the fate of the nation for generations to come.

You might think that the stakes are high enough for Republicans to put in some serious time trying to clarify their message. As the great economist Alfred Marshall once said, facts do not speak for themselves. If we are waiting for the Republicans to do the speaking, the country is in big trouble.

Democrats, by contrast, are all talk. They could sell refrigerators to Eskimos before Republicans could sell them blankets.

Indeed, Democrats sold Barack Obama to the American public, which is an even more amazing feat, considering his complete lack of relevant experience and questionable (at best) loyalty to the values and institutions of this country.

The Democrats have obviously given a lot of attention to articulation, including coordinated articulation among their members. Some years ago, Senator Chuck Schumer was recorded, apparently without his knowledge, telling fellow Democrats to keep using the word “extremist” when discussing Republicans.

Even earlier, when George W. Bush first ran for President, the word that suddenly began appearing everywhere was “gravitas” — as in the endlessly repeated charge that Bush lacked “gravitas.” People who had never used that word before suddenly began using it all the time.

Today, the Democrats’ buzzword is “clean” — as in the endlessly repeated statement that Republicans in the House of Representatives should send a “clean” bill to the Senate. Anything less than a blank check is not considered a “clean” bill.

The Constitution gives the House of Representatives the responsibility to originate all spending bills, based on what they think should and should not be funded. But the word “clean” is now apparently supposed to override the Constitution.

If Republicans want to show some seriousness about articulating their case, they might start by deleting the abbreviation “CR” from their vocabulary. As has been said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” That journey is long overdue.

Not for For Me, But for Thee. It’s the Story That Counts.

Political Cartoons by Michael Ramirez

For Thee, Not for Me.

The chief of the FAA told Congress today that Washington-area airports will largely escape the effects of the air traffic controller furloughs — a blessing for lawmakers who fly out of the nation’s capitol.

Michael Huerta, head of the Federal Aviation Administration, told a congressional panel that the Washington region’s airports are spaced out enough and have enough spare capacity that furloughs to air traffic controllers won’t hurt as much here.

Because, in case you hadn’t heard Obama and his FAA have decided that the Sequester is not causing enough pain so they need to ratchet it up some more., but NOT on themselves though.
The White House accused Republicans of a political distraction Wednesday after House committee chairmen asked President Obama to release a State Department cable that they said would prove Hillary Rodham Clinton, as secretary off state, signed off on security cuts at the diplomatic post in Benghazi ahead of the attack Sept. 11. (WT)

Not that the whole “internet video” thing wasn’t a massive distraction and politically motivated to begin with.
Not for For Me, But for Thee.

“Green” Update…The Story Continues

Remember the “green” stimulus money that went to a company in Finland to build electric cars (not here in the US, but Finland).

The electric carmaker, which laid off 75% of its employees earlier this month, missed its first loan payment to the Energy Department on Monday. Treasury has already seized $21 million in an effort to get back some of the taxpayer money loaned to it, but most of the $192 million that was given to the company over the three years is very much at risk.

Also at risk is about $21.5 million it received from the state of Delaware because of plans it once had to reopen a closed General Motors plant there.

Company officials and spokesmen are not commenting on the outlook for the company or reports that it is close to a bankruptcy filing.

Fisker is what is known as a story stock. It’s not a public company, of course, but it still qualifies. A story stock is a company that relies upon “a story” to get new investors to pony up more money to keep the story going. 

It can’t point to results, or a business model, or demographics. It has some new, breakthrough technology or process that will revolutionize the world if and when… blah, blah, blah, blah, talk, talk, talk.

And all they need is a bit more money.

And Obama gave Stimulus Money to them.

More Money down the “green” rat hole.

Story stocks suffer from the opposite problem Google and Facebook posed: Story stocks have a revolutionary way to monetize demand for products, but they have little demand.

And the last thing a company with very little demand needs is a bit more money.

A bit more money gives a company with no customers the trappings of success without the fuss and bother of actually selling things; a bit more money allows the story to supplant sales; a bit more money means that the only thing left to do is go out and get a bit more money over and over again.

In the 1990s the fuel of the future was to be ethanol, especially ethanol derived from biomass cellulose waste like switchgrass and cornstalks and sawdust.

All they needed was a bit more money to perfect the technology of refining ethanol from waste products and success was to be ensured.

Sounds like every Liberal idea I’ve ever heard of. When it fails, all we need (perpetually) is more money and it will succeed!  Just that little bit more…!!! 🙂

Twenty years later, all biomass fuels have to show for the story is more research grants from the Department of Energy, more demonstration plants that can’t produce commercial volumes and more need for subsidies from the federal government to stay afloat.

Other than an a food storage because of all the Corn converted to fuel instead of food, that is. 🙂

And regular corn ethanol- a competitor to biomass ethanol- is still only about as economical as regular gasoline, if not a little less so. 

Just a bit more money, please.

“There are two times in a man’s life when he should not speculate,” Mark Twain wrote in Following the Equator, “when he can’t afford it, and when he can.”

Twain by then had been ruined by a story stock of his own making.

“The author,” he says, “did not gather [these observations] from practice, but from experience.”

Twain invested in, managed and ultimately smothered a new marvel in typesetting technology called the Paige Compositor. Twain had the great disadvantage of knowing a thing or two about typesetting. He was a young apprentice typesetter in Philadelphia, New York and St. Louis.

In Twain’s case- as in other story stocks- a little knowledge proved to be a dangerous thing.  The inventor James Paige beguiled Twain with creating the most perfect machine ever, instead of one that would sell. Consequently the machine never even got to the prototype stage. Instead of merely losing money in the affair, Twain’s quest for a perfect machine finally drove him into bankruptcy- an event from which his creative mind never fully recovered.

According to biographer Justin Kaplan, Twain later indulged in fantasies of locking the inventor of the typesetting machine in a steel trap and watching him die.

The folks from Fisker have no less arduous a trap to face themselves.

“As the years rolled by,” writes Scientific American, “Fisker observers became increasingly suspicious that the company didn’t even possess a working car. At the 2008 debut, Fisker announced that the Karma would go on sale in late 2009. Yet by early 2010, when Bill Gifford profiled the company for Popular Science, no one but the chauffeur for the Crown Prince of Denmark had driven even an early prototype.”

But like most Liberal ideas, it sounded good, noble and tugged at the heart strings of emotion so with good intentions they wasted vast amounts of money. And in stead of admitting they were morons for buying into it they just want to spend even more money to prove their pie-in-the-sky righteousness is correct no matter what.

They actually did build a few cars, but most of them flooded before some spontaneously caught fire, just like the Chevy Volt. Really.

So now the steel trap set for Fisker is in Congress, which of course wants taxpayer money back. But what Congress really wants more than anything is to embarrass Obama, the Department of Energy and the whole green energy scheme, which was produced by a little too much knowledge and way more money than they ever needed.

They have found a willing victim in Fisker.

While Twain could only fantasize about retribution, Congress owns the steel trap of public investigation in which many others who speculate on the public dime have gone to die a slow, and humiliating, death.  

It’ll make a great story.  (Townhall)

No They Cant! The Sequel

John Stossel: President Obama said in his State of the Union Address that he is putting colleges on notice to lower costs. A few days later, he spoke to students at the University of Michigan, with a promise of more federal aid. Politicians claim they can make college affordable. No They Can’t!

In the last 30 years, inflation is up 160%, but tuition costs are up 750%.

It’s because colleges have no incentive to cut prices when students can get money from government. Federal aid, adjusted for inflation, increased from 32 billion in 1987, to 169 billion in 2010.

Government tells us, “Here’s the gap between what you can afford and what the college is charging, we will now make up that gap. And then the college just inches up the tuition a little bit higher,” says Naomi Riley author of The Faculty Lounges: and Other Reasons Why You Won’t Get the College Education You Paid For.

Colleges don’t use all or even most of that money in the classroom. We were stunned at the gyms and dining halls that serve lobster and sushi. Check out the University of Missouri, which is proud of its spa, rock climbing wall and “Tiger Grotto” – an elaborate pool complex.

Government creates perverse incentives. Colleges compete on prestige and luxury amenities, not their price tag. Administrators don’t worry about high tuition costs because their customers have government subsidies.

And so what if they graduate with a mountain of debt and their job prospect are sh*t. They government will take of them too. And if ObamaCare survives they can be on their parents Health Insurance until they are 26.

And they’ve been raised by the liberal socialists to believe they are entitled to be look after just because.

So who cares, the Government will take care of you. You may remember that The Obama Administration took over the  student loans because they were going bankrupt.

2010: President Obama will sign a bill today that ends a 45-year-old program under which banks and other private-sector lenders such as Sallie Mae receive a federal subsidy for making government-guaranteed college loans.

Instead, the U.S. Department of Education – which already makes roughly a third of these loans through its direct-lending program – will make 100 percent of them starting July 1.

Students who previously had to choose a private-sector lender for their guaranteed loans will now have only one choice: the government. (SFGATE)

But the newly passed legislation does nothing to address the rapidly rising cost of education–and adds to our national debt. (Forbes)

A “single payer” system, you might say. 🙂

And costs are up 5 times inflation because colleges only incentive is to spend more to make college look like an French Riviera resort.

Costs? Who gives a crap about costs. The Government is paying for it.

Then they graduate and reality hits them in the face.

Students who graduated from college in 2010 with student loans owed an average of $25,250, up 5 percent from the previous year, according to a report scheduled for release Thursday.

The average debt — once again the highest on record — came as the class of 2010 faced an unemployment rate for new college graduates of 9.1 percent, the highest in recent years, according to the report by the Project on Student Debt, which pointed out that unemployment rates for those without college degrees were still higher.

The median starting salary for students graduating from four-year colleges in 2009 and 2010 was $27,000, down from $30,000 for those who entered the work force in 2006 to 2008, according to a study released on Wednesday by the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University. That is a decline of 10 percent, even before taking inflation into account.

35 percent of unemployed college graduates have been without a job for a year or longer. And, the long-term unemployment rate for those 25 and older is almost the same across the board—regardless of educational level.

Sidenote: remember, most report unemployment statistics don’t count people who have given up completely looking for a job.

CNN Last week: But the competition is steep, with employers reporting that they have received nearly 33 applications for every job posting, up from 21 applications per posting last year.

Enter Occupiers. “Entitled” little skulls of  unemployed (and many cases unemployable narcissistic and anarchist) socialist mush who have had reality hit them in the face and they just want to whine about it.

New York Times: The high cost of college and the growing debt burden of student loans have become increasingly potent political issues in recent years, high on the agenda of Occupy Wall Street and related protests across the country.

And then there’s the next line of graduate-in-waiting: Teenagers

The high teen unemployment rate, which came in at 23.8% for February (2012). Their unemployment rate remains above 20% for the 40th month in a row, the first time this has happened since the government started keeping records in 1948.

And since Obama was elected the first by getting naive 20-somethings to believe in his Messianic self he has to throw bones to his peeps, especially as their support has cooled over the years because a lot of them are not college students anymore but unemployed and underemployed debtors.

So he’ll need a new crop of naive morons to vote for him.

“Student debt goes up and it doesn’t ever go down,” said Mark Kantrowitz, the publisher of Finaid.org and Fastweb.com, two Web sites that offer advice on paying for college. “We’re clearly heading in the direction of decreased college affordability. Among lower-income students, the canaries in the cage that squawk first, we’re already seeing a decline in enrollment in four-year colleges and an increase in lower-cost two-year institutions,” he said.

Mr. Kantrowitz estimated that for the class of 2011, average debt was $27,200 — or, if parent loans were included, $34,000.

This is the fifth consecutive year in which the public universities that serve most students raised their tuition at a faster rate than the far more expensive private universities. (NYT)

So that’s why Obama has proposed….<<Drum Roll>> SPENDING EVEN MORE on student loan programs!!!

Now, I know that’s a shocker! 🙂

So when in Debt SPEND EVEN MORE!

When the system is bleeding red ink and it’s failing SPEND EVEN MORE!

When your house is burning down throw more Napalm on the Fire that will help!!

Liberal Economics at it’s finest.

But don’t worry, It’s all the Republicans! and “the rich”‘s Fault! 🙂

The Union Did It

The murder weapon has been found.

The culprit: A Government Public Sector Union.

The Victim: California.

The Patsie: Nikky Diaz ( the $23/hr “abused” maid)

The Pimp: Gloria Alred

Of Course, by now, you should have guessed I was speaking of the Nikki Diaz Illegal Alien Maid “October Surprise” that got uber liberal Jerry Brown elected as governor of the most bankrupt (economically and morally) state in the Union.

The scene of the crime: It’s late in the campaign season, you’re guy- the big spending liberal who’ll not cut your extravagant pensions or your extravagant unsustainable raises is losing to a Conservative who will gleefully slit the throat of your golden goose.

A friend has a friend who just happens to be an illegal alien and was a maid for 7 years  of this Conservative, Meg Whitman, that she was fired last year when that was discovered.

So you have a patsie you can gin up. You have a race issue you can gin up. And you play your cards right and you swing the election back in your favor.

Screw everyone else. This is all about ME.

ME ME ME ME ME!!!

MY PRECIOUS! 🙂

Meet the California Nurses Association.

The assassins are revealed to be petty, partisan, and ultimately very narcissistic, greedy public sector union employees who propped up not only Jerry Brown, but Barbara Boxer (against Carly Fiorino).

The sprung the trap. And gleefully so. But no one wanted to mention it DURING the campaign in October. No, that was secret.

Try as anyone might, no one wanted to give away the big fat secret that this was dirty hardball politics at it’s absolute worst.

We just had a frieghtened, script rehearsed Illegal alien maid cry on camera that her former boss was an arsehole, cheated her, and knew she was an illegal alien.

Oh, boo hoo! cry me pathetic…

So there. <<stick tongue out>>

The real story here is the hit job and what it say about “government reform” and the reform of government spending.

The Government sector unions have been milking the golden goose of what they believe is endless money for decades and they will not go quietly for anyone else’s benefit on cutting their lavish over-the-top pensions, raises, and benefits, that are choking the life out of California and many, many other states.

They don’t care. They are probably the worst narcissists of all. And they have a lot of power, especially with Liberals, Progressives, The mainstream media, and Democrats.

And they’ll use it to keep what’s theirs. Regardless of the cost.

They’ll be the people you see in the movies who has just found a golden treasure and are stuffing it in bags and down his trousers (or hers in the Nurse’s case) and when the tomb starts collapsing and the quicksand is rushing in and they have to choose between the treasure and their life and/or the lives of others, they will sacrifice every single person before anything else, and ultimately the treasure wins.

MY PRECIOUS!

That’s what we are up against in trying to reform government spending.

There are a lot of treasure troves and golden gooses that the public sector employees will guard with YOUR life and will destroy anyone who gets near their treasure.

Think a horde of Gollums from “Lord of the Rings” all reciting in unison “MY PRECIOUS!”.

And not only do these Gollums vote, but they have campaign war chests and dirty tricks squads and liberal media outlets.

They are Gollum on steriods. And they are addicted to their own One Ring. And  your death, economically or morally, is insignificant to them.

They don’t care. They are the ultimate addicts.

That is the challenge ahead.

But if we don’t meet it and we don’t defeat it, all is lost.

Cook their Geese (or at least seriously roast), or our Goose is cooked.

Period. End of story.
