It's hard to claim to be governed by science after the millionth example of why everything one thinks has been proven fraudulent. America is as weak as it is poor as a result of implementing an ideology designed to engineer mediocrity.
How much more data does this White House need? Well, another term's worth, but that still won't be enough for rules who think carbon dioxide is junking the planet but endless deficit spending is saving the economy. Sapping vitality is the undesirable contribution of those with such amazing ideas that they don't even need to check the consequences.
Their ignorance steals our bliss. This administration and their ilk can't bring themselves to admit that distorting every incentive has made panhandling chic. They'll claim everyone else needs their assistance, as we puny humans are too stupid to know what we want or how to get it. That's why they call present-ruining spending an investment in the future even though we have a firm idea how things will turn out, too. But people have never been able to accomplish anything without the steadying comfort of having an overwhelming stack of paperwork with which to comply, and that stultifying guidance is what life's about.
If it wasn't your money that had been placed in the invisible ether for eternal storage, it would almost be comical how many failures this clueless and possibly high regime has propagated. Don't count on them to reform after infuriatingly being granted a second chance: we'll be getting another mug of the same agony, because the coffee won't burn if you pour it down your pants this time. Astoundingly, rampant increases in handout spending leads to more people on them. Conservatives demonstrate their contempt for progress by noticing the cure caused the disease.
We'll never pay off our debt even if we had a job, and those banking on finding nourishment at the end of this unsustainable path will be disappointed to learn here's no Golden Corral at the exit. Of the president's countless shortcomings, he thinks that being reelected means he's doing swell. The number of dim suckers who voted for him is the only percentage he notices.
If you're not already discouraged, the effort required to maintain defensive front you've engineered so you may continue to work hard for a reward will itself wear you down. Americans have to actually argue to keep half of one's income in a measure of how far the collective has oozed. You can tell we've reached the canyon's nadir when telling others to mind their own damn business is a charge's best proper response.
The jealousy brigades think fortune is a matter of fortune, which is sign number one that this is not the country for them. Lowering intake and motivation with every percentage hike isn't, we can dream, a permanent American characteristic.
Bosses and owners find that they don't feel like working hard when they're ultimately keeping two-fifths the pay. That resignation really sets a good example for relatively poorer people. At least the latter don't have employment anymore what with all the nasty thieving millionaires sending income to the capital instead of workers' pockets. There's less money for both the private and public sectors, a shrinking act which is yet another shock for those who view life as a zero-sum game.
At least they're competent at generating lame excuses for seemingly limitless debt as if it's necessary to cede every decision to Washington. Don't ask for proof that the hive can spend our money better, as they've already tried it and will keep at it. They have at least shown that they can yap endlessly about putting wars on a credit card as if bagging terrorists and Saddam Hussein put us $16 trillion in the hole. Bullets are expensive, which is why only gun control can lower the debt.
You're so quaint with your attachment to the belief that it's a necessary government function to put global mass murderers who dislike us in the sand. Liberals will keep claiming that fighting back is the one action that's going to fire us into default, not the trillions in handouts to millions of people. Recipients would never make investments on their own if they had the chance to earn more. Remember that corporations aren't people but we're all of the government, with the difference being membership in the latter is an involuntary condition of citizenship.
Despite the demonstrable benefits of liberty and self-reliance, purveyors of unwise conventional wisdom have decided that federal guarantees are what made this country great. Every welfare state has a sizable and permanent class of people convinced they couldn't last otherwise, and the mission of shifting life from drive to neutral is their way of conserving fuel. Just see how long someone else will comply with your demand to push.
People don't notice rights draining away if it happens a few drips per day. But they should see that the bathtub has dissolved. This White House acts like a mean mom at home and cool dad abroad, and it's no wonder their charges have become undisciplined rebels. Taking advantage of the successful works as well as letting goons take advantage of us. Obama still thinks what he thinks works, and nothing like every single day of his presidency will convince him otherwise.
