I figure if everyone else can do it, so can I. So I have taken a hiatus from blogging recently. But here is a bit of my thinking on current events of late.
Sitting here reading the news this morning about the government shut down and I am amazed at the indoctrinated mindless opinions being displayed. There seems to be a few common threads emerging as to who and what are to blame for our maladies. The prominent accusation: "the Tea Party "terrorists" are to blame." Really? Since when does having an opposing opinion make anyone a terrorist? Oh! Now I remember. That's what the British would have called the patriots who stood up to taxation without representation. Just as many of those in the Tea Party are presently trying to do. So much for diversity and tolerance.
Since when does being a veteran make anyone a terrorist? Those who served, those who fought for this nation, those who spilled their blood to protect this nation are terrorists? I don't think so. No more than I believe that anyone expressing a heartfelt and sincere opinion in opposition to idiocy is a terrorist.
Since when does working for a living all of your life and earning your way make anyone a terrorist? Or are the only acceptable Americans those who are either on the public dole, or those engaged in raping the system that made this once the greatest nation on earth in the first place.
I am sorry, but the American people have been forced to live without non essentials for the past six years, yet suddenly if there won't be money for parks and recreation, or to pay for those who process all the claims for the largest entitlement society in the history of the world, then suddenly the world is ending and its all the fault of those who have worked the hardest to preserve our nation over the course of their lives. Tjhose who actually pay the taxes are the bad guys if i am reading all this correctly.
Once again, I am sorry, but I am not buying it. America hasn't had a budget since this president took office and since he as took office, he has increased the deficit by 8 trillion dollars in 5 years. His predecessor increased the deficit by 4 trillion in 8 years, while fighting two wars, yet when this president doubles that rate in four years, no one seems to notice and there are those who continue to want to blame everything on the former president. Fleeing from reality seems to be a reoccurring liberal trait.
I have noticed what has been happening and I know who is responsible. For the record, I have about as much use for the present republican leadership of this country, as I do for the present democrat leadership of this country. NONE! They are all a bunch of sorry lying partisan hacks who need to be flushed and replaced. I am not a Tea Party member or a Tea Party supporter, but one thing is for damn sure, I am not a supporter of either of the parties presently running this country either.
I don't know what will need to be done short of economic and societal collapse and a complete re-building of this nation, but I am pretty damn sure that what we are doing right now ain't working and it isn't going to work. As the saying goes, we are all riding in a hand basket to hell, on a greased rail, in the express lane. So if it takes a government shutdown to force people in this country to pull their heads out of their backsides and say enough is enough, then I say more power to them and let the revolution begin.
Maybe if the traitorous bastards we having occupying Washington are forced out due to the chaos they have created, then maybe just maybe this nation can be salvaged before it is too late. America has become nothing more than cesspool of individual and special interests centered around the lies of egalitarian socialism and anti Americanism and we are paying the price for our own craven desires. The great melting pot of America past is now nothing more than a bloated pool of egalitarian flotsam that created the illusion that everything should be free and now the true cost of that idiocy is coming due.
So....if you really want to be pissed at someone about what is happening in Washington and the causes behind the government shutting down? Then you should be pissed at yourself for sitting there like a knot on a log and allowing it to happen while you took advantage of the same things that are causing it. Whether is its government shutdown over partisan bickering today or a complete collapse of our economy under the weight of egalitarian socialist policy tomorrow, either way the collapse of America is going to happen and it is happening right now.
