My Neices and Nephews

I’m pretty sick of hearing, “… for our children and grandchildren!” Its complete bunk. No one in politics today does anything for anyone but themselves. If you paid $90-200 per ticket to see some assclown speak, he’s only out to rape your wallet. He’s going to do it by preying on your fears and anxieties. He’s going to attack you where you are weak. He’s going after what you love.

I don’t have kids of my own. I probably won’t ever have kids of my own. What I do have, is nieces and nephews. Right now, if I’m to believe the Tea  Party Movement, on the off chance that these kiddos survive a terrorist-muslim-facist-nazi-commie-homo-tranny-liberal president actively trying to kill them and eat their puppies, then there won’t be an economy for them to find jobs in, and they’ll all become heroine-addicted prostitutes.

No, seriously, there’s a conspiracy against your kids. You have to believe me, I wrote it… in chalk.

Chalk makes it TRUE! Glenn Beck tells me so.

This evidence of course, only works if you believe in magic chalk, and that anything you write with it comes to life like so many PBS cartoons. If you don’t believe in magic chalk, you poor foolish bastard, then you’ll just have to look at all the significant evidence that exists in reality… like:

Increased Government Spending:

Its obvious if you look at the government debt charts that Barrack Obama wants to force you into poverty so you can only afford to eat dog meat, too. Yes, you see:

SEE! SEEEE!

You see, obviously from the chart, the republican business model didn’t take us from the lowest national deficit in the history of our nation to an all time high in a matter of 16 months. No, that would never happen. And surely the $1 trillion cost of the Iraq war had NO effect on our government spending. And we should always completely ignore the fact that George Bush Jr went on television and told us all that if we didn’t push through a ridiculous stimulus package we will all die a horrible nuclear death.

All of those things are Obama’s fault.

In my grandparent’s time, they had their own economy problems. It seems that Herbert Hoover destroyed their economy the same way the tea baggers say Barrack Obama destroyed ours.

The solution was FDR’s New Deal. Jobs were created, lives were saved, swing music was played over loud speakers in the Vatican. It was a total era of capitalism and greed!

Or wait, no… that was the 80s… FDR was a progressive… ….. … … like Obama…

Maybe I shouldn’t worry about the kids after all…

    Lol. Chalk makes things even more true than the internet does.

    I don’t (can’t) buy into the line about “our children and grandchildren” because it is fear mongering; however, a push for politics to move past working for what is best right now and think of the future might not be a bad thing.

    I really don’t care who is at fault for the debt (it is both parties and over many different congresses). What I do care about is the fact that it exists without a system to balance it. Most folks cant live beyond their means in the long term. Most businesses can’t survive if they cant keep on budget.

    Keynes gave governments the tools needed to use fiscal policy to grow economies, but he never meant to have only growth without planning for retractions that happen naturally. I think both sides of the aisle need to learn to balance the budget and quit bribing the voters with programs the government cant afford.
