BEFORE THE NEXT SHOE DROPS
The CNN article headline asks a simple question, "
I am really not trying to warn you of an upcoming depression, I have been doing that for over ten years, nothing has improved, we keep going down the same road. Obama is in India, to talk about more trade, funny though it seems that the leader of the greatest nation on earth is out there begging a third world country for help, we did that with the Chinese before this.
But who are we to complain, we have been guilty, and have not yet repented. If you believe that the Democrats want something for free, then so do the Republicans. I laughed out loud, there was an instant in Detroit where some black gathered to get some free money from "Obama's stash". So how is it that some Republicans also want some free money, from their lets say defense and some other government contracts. Free money is free money no matter how you get it. If the welfare rolls are filled with sorry bunches trying to game the system, then the halls of the congress are filled with the similar kind, only in expensive suits and fancy neck wares, everyone looking for free money.
I was listening to a Limbaugh rant, how Germans had the lowest unemployment rate in seventeen years, failing ever to mention that Germans control most of their own industrial production and have strong unions, they did not ship their manufacturing to China and India like the Reagan, Bush I and the others did. Oh did I mention that the senior Bush was the first Ambassador to China, before becoming the chief of the CIA, and then the president. Oh we are Americans we can not be expected to know this kind of trivia. Among other things besides, Germans have real high taxes, government supported health care and an education system based on merits, But the trivial things matter, like where did all that American money go? Limbaugh did, as I am sure Beck, and Hannity, and probably Dick Miller would have talked about the British cuts in spending without talking about their cuts in defense spending and an actual increase in infrastructure spending.
To have two opposing ideas in mind and still be able to function is the sign of genius it is said, by that measure the talk radio listeners would all be geniuses, but if the two ideas are totally mutually exclusive and you can still accept one and disregard the other then you must be on the lower end of the intelligence totem pole.
But hey, we are Americans right! We work under divine providence, so the reality does not matter, or does it? As the time passes each day I am vindicated.
The problem here is this, both the left and the right have been brain washed, been made stupid, we are deaf dumb and blind, just that we are not Tommy (look it up).
Why are we reduced to becoming the beggars of the world? What may be the message in our cavorting with the bloody oppressive regimes? Could we also be headed for a socialist/ plutocratic regime? It could happen here! I have been saying it for years too.
LIFE IS A GAME OF CONNECT THE DOTS, IF YOU DON'T CONNECT ALL THE DOTS OR DON'T CONNECT THEM IN THE RIGHT ORDER YOU NEVER GET THE PICTURE
