Hollywood Actor Charlie Sheen was rushed to the hospital yet again after yet another drugs,sex, and booze binge.
Kinda sounds like the folks in Washington D.C. to me.
And to an extent the American people, who have been trained by Washington D.C. to live the high life and expect dependency.
So you have wild, crazed spending binges likes the last 10 years really. Both Obama and Bush 41. Both Republicans and Democrats. It’s just that the Democrats have partied heartier and faster than the Republicans did.
Much higher debt in a much shorter time frame.
The “suitcase full of drugs” was spending. Spending to advance one’s ideology, but most spending to pay off dependents, make more dependents and to buy votes for their re-election so they can do it all over again.
That’s where the Prostitutes come in.
Unions, Lobbyists, and the “advocates”.
But the Congress Men and Women are also Prostitutes for the money
The Money leads to the power and the power is the real drug of choice in Washington.
Just look at Deposed but still defiant Queen Pelosi and Prince Harry Reid.
Harry Reid’s defiant thumb in the eye about earmarks, another drug of choice for buying off the American people, where he will continue doing them because that’s how he got elected in the first place.
Dance with the Whore that got you to the party and then “Party on Dude”.
The Porn: That it has no consequences so you can just watch it continue and view it from a far and that we can’t change it now and any who dares is just a “racist” “extremist” “teabagger”.
Then there are the American people, who are the co-dependents (and in the case of ObamaCare the forced dependents) in this equation. (of which now Over 700 waivers have been granted, more on this in another blog)
41% of people in a recent Rasmussen poll said it was Ok to spend even more on Education and Infrastructure even after all this. Denial is strong with these folks.
We have spend enough. The good times have rolled by. Get over it.
They have come to expect over the last couple of generations that the government will in fact take care of them when they get old and retire so no need to plan ahead, let’s just party like it’s the Summer of ’69.
And every time some tries to inject some sanity into the proceedings they are crucified by the addicts in Washington and the dependents in the heartlands.
But the party is going to end, whether anyone likes it or not.
There will be an intervention and pain now, or there will be massive and prolonged pain later.
As the old Fram air filter commercials of my youth would say, “You can pay me now or you can pay me later”.
It’s time to pay for the Sex, Drugs, and Rock n’ Roll.
And whether you like it or not is IRRELEVANT.
Thing of it this way. You got a credit card. You maxed it out so you got another credit card and you maxed it out and another and another.
Now all you can do is pay the minimums because you have so much debt that you can’t see anything else.
That’s where the US is right now.
To put $14 trillion in perspective, our national debt is larger than the total economies of China, the United Kingdom, and Australia combined.
If our Debt was rank as “an economy” it would be #30 in the world of nearly 300 nations!!
Just how far in debt are we? Find out below.
Current debt: 14,059,409,159,678.42
So do you think politically safe nibbles around the edges (Republicans) or Politically slick slogans (Democrats and their “freezes”) will staunch this bleeding?
Or are HARD, politically unpopular choices needed. By both the Political Class, their Drug Dealers, Pimps, Whores, and Prostitutes and the the American people.
Denial is not an option anymore. The Credit cards are maxed out.
The Party is over.
The Hangover and DT’s are going to be pain like you never knew.
But the alternative is that Charlie Sheen and the Charlie Sheen economics becomes Anna Nicole Smith or River Phoenix.
Personally, I want to live!
How about you?
