Do YOU spend more than you make? ... As I mentioned we are BROKE. B-R-O-K-E!!! 15 TRILLION BROKE!
Since the first day that the Democrat National Convention convened in Charlotte North Carolina the National Debt counter clicked over the SIXTEEN THILLION mark. You need to feed your abacus more often Blue, she be running a bit slow. And my dear BlueBee, that is just our bonded indebtedness. Counting Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, VA Pensions and benefits, US Government Employee Pentions and Benefits, State Government Pentions (including teachers, cops, and other bureaucrats) not to mention underfunded private pention plans) All told it amounts to some 125-150 TRILLIONS MORE in non existant DOLLARS.
Tell me pray tell, who is going to pay their fair share of this unsecured debt, the same greedy one percents who you are depending on to rake your chestnuts out of the current fire? The really nice thing about our unsecured indebtedness is as inflation goes up the debt will increase just as fast to keep pace with, or maybe even run ahead of wage inflation, tightening the screws on the real wealth creators, the wage earners.
Who will be the first to step up to the alter and break their iron rice bowls as a public sacrifice? Will you be the one BlueBee? That is what this is all really about, the favored among us in the form of current and former bureaucrats (See a partial list above) against those of us who still have a job and who Obama has blessed with a shrinking pay check out of which they are forced to finance the good life for those of us who produce nothing but who consume everything.
BYW, as more and more Beeks wake up to the facts of political life, the more of us Beeks realize that the police no longer protect life, liberty, property, or our pursuit of happiness. Every year the police become more of a glorified coups of retirees and score keepers whose main job is to maintain a sort of peace or equality between the forces of good and evil without making either side feel bad about their contribution to society. Afterall, those of us who only stand in line and take, take, take also serve.
