If you can’t afford it, you’ll just have to do without!! What is so freakin’ hard to understand here?!
Common sense dictates that we cannot borrow our way out of this mess. Our current budget methodology is akin to the gambler that increases his bets in a futile attempt to recoup his already mounting losses!
You’ll just have to make do with what you’ve got!
This is my message to government and citizen alike! It seems as though an awful lot of Americans and their government have become a bunch of whining, needy little crybabies who can’t stand even the smallest of privations anymore without calling for a government program to satiate their every whim and desire. Sadly, our prostitute politicians are only too happy to oblige them.
Having been terrorized by government twice in recent weeks(I live in California), and expecting further terror-by-budget in the coming weeks as the House Dems prepare to ram another unread, undebated and untransparent budget monstrosity up our, I mean down our throats, I am screaming STOP!
The House GOP seems to be getting the message. To wit:
House GOP leaders wrote to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer Monday asking them to consider imposing a federal spending freeze on the unfinished 2009 budget.
In the letter, the GOP leadership team calls for a freeze “at a time of record deficits.”
I hope they mean it and fight like the country’s future depends on it! Because it does!
“1. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. 2. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men. 3. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. 4. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. 5. You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich. 6. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income. 7. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. 8. You cannot establish security on borrowed money. 9. You cannot build character and courage by taking away men’s initiative and independence. 10. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.”
