“Shut Up.” Our President explained. And he meant it.
To that separate, intellectually inferior branch of government; known as the Supreme Court. “Shut Up! Senators McCain and Feingold will tell you when you can speak and under what restrictions. I don’t want to be hearing from the people who caused the problems around here. The people that agree with me are still allowed to speak. You others Shut Up!”
To those ignorant, Bible-Thumping, tea-bagging moral hypocrites who think I spend too much. “Shut Up! You didn’t hold mass rallies when George W. Bush ran deficits. So therefore, you have no moral right to complain about mine! Besides, I’m freezing $15B in spending while I submit a Presbud for $187B more in stimulus funds – it’s the new fiscal responsibility. So Shut Up!”
To those faux-conservatives who think tax cuts are the way to fix a broken economy. “Shut Up! His actual wording follows below.
Let me repeat: we cut taxes. We cut taxes for 95 percent of working families. We cut taxes for small businesses. We cut taxes for first-time homebuyers. We cut taxes for parents trying to care for their children. We cut taxes for 8 million Americans paying for college.
What His Majesty, MemyselfandI I, was lying about in that screed involves the difference between a tax cut and a tax credit. A tax cut involves the government reducing its initial intake of money. A tax credit involves the government taking the money, and then offering to let you have some of it back. Tax cuts go to everyone. Not just specific children the government wants to condescendingly pat on the top of the head.
So with a tax cut, you just keep the money that you went to work for in the first place. You choose what to do with it. You make like the typical American and go pursue happiness. With a tax credit, the state takes your money and then conditionally gives it back. You have to fit a certain equivalence class or behave the way Big Brother tells you to in order to qualify. If you don’t do what Big Brother tells you, you guessed it Sucker, “Shut Up!”
To those people who haven’t gotten with the program and realized that Gubbermint Clause hands out the goodies in this town, “Shut Up.” To those of you who know who Father Christmas is. “Do you like Thomas The Tank Engine? I can buy you a really neat-o Chu-Chu Train – and THE RICH get to pay for it. Isn’t Daddy fun to play with?” And if you’re one of THE RICH; “Shut Up!”
And to any of those people who think they can get away with forgetting who they elected king, let me make perfectly clear whose fault everything wrong with America is…
We cannot afford another so-called economic “expansion” like the one from last decade – what some call the “lost decade” – where jobs grew more slowly than during any prior expansion; where the income of the average American household declined while the cost of health care and tuition reached record highs; where prosperity was built on a housing bubble and financial speculation.
Oh, and furthermore…
So let me start the discussion of government spending by setting the record straight. At the beginning of the last decade, America had a budget surplus of over $200 billion. By the time I took office, we had a one year deficit of over $1 trillion and projected deficits of $8 trillion over the next decade. Most of this was the result of not paying for two wars, two tax cuts, and an expensive prescription drug program. On top of that, the effects of the recession put a $3 trillion hole in our budget. That was before I walked in the door.
Poor King MemyselfandI I. The game was rigged just so that he, personally would have low poll numbers. It’s all those messes he inherited. If they were actually his problems, than he would be expected to solve them.
The worst thing that President Barack Obama has done to America has nothing to do with even his stupid, socialistic policies. His worst deleterious effect is that he has attempted to turn the Presidency into a recreation of Louis XIV’s Divine Right Monarchy. It really is all about Obama – not just some of it, but all of it. The State is Barack.
After the Barack Obama ego jet goes down like the airliner featured in the first episode of Lost, the clean-up of what really is wrong in America can begin. We can take those messes His Highness inherited, convert them into close-form problems and solve them. We can do this – not I. To quibble a bit with the Sci-Fi classic Dune, hubris, not fear, is the mind-killer.
Which is why last night’s epic to solipsistic narcissism won’t even help His Obamaness, much less those other people – who just happen to live under him. It’s truly hard to evaluate, measure and report on The State of The Union when your wounded pride drives you to deliver a STFU Address to your political critics instead.
