Paul Ryan must be running short on Washington cocktail party invitations – or perhaps he is itching to get back on MSNBC or CNN. Whatever it is, there is no good reason for a Republican to criticize talk radio, and to blame conservative media for “the coarsening of our debate.”
What a tool! What liberal network talking point did he read that off of? Only someone so ensconced in the beltway that they can no longer see would utter such a vapid cliche. With that Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Debbie Wasserman Schultz have said about Republicans in the PAST WEEK – how in the world can Ryan blame “talk radio” for this coarsening? It is sickening.
See the story here at Breitbart.
And think – we MUST HAVE a virtual congress. Washington is a cesspool.
Inside the Washington beltway, the unemployed are revered, pampered, pandered to and almost worshipped. How politicians treat the unemployed – meaning how much of other people’s money will they give them and for how long – is considered a critical measure of compassion.
Out here in the hinterlands, however, us rubes have a different idea. We see unemployed “foodies” buying more expensive groceries and latte’s than many of us can – and we see those EBT cards running through those scanners at a maddening pace. Obviously, to anyone with any common sense, people are gaming the system widely. Now a study from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) validates what we instinctively knew: people on unemployment benefits will shop more than twice as often as they will look for a job. And by shop, I don’t mean food and gas – I mean shopping for stuff. On an average day, 40% will shop and only 18% will bother to look for a job.
Wow, 40%. I can’t imagine shopping for “stuff” 40% of the time. Source: CNS News
This article was run on Breitbart Sports on May 2, 2013 – and it’s titled “PC MASCOT POLICE WILL NEVER BE SATISFIED.”
I think you’ll find it funny, pithy, and scarily prescient.
First, a report that President Obama is making renouncing citizenship 5X more expensive than it used to be. Now before some folks react happily over that, let’s consider a few things. While he’s making leaving more difficult, he’s making coming here easier for the destitute populations who will require government assistance – while making it harder for qualified folks to come.
This cannot end well.
Moreover, look at world history and the regimes who built a fence around a country to keep PEOPLE IN. The Soviet Union. Nazi Germany. Iraq. East Germany. Again, this never ends well. See a piece here by Daniel Greenfield.
The other disturbing item is that bureaucrats are continuing to re-write Obama Care daily – sneaking in all kinds of liberal mischief. Namely, “death panels.” Sarah Palin was right from the jump on this. Again, a bureaucratic state can never end well. They never have, and never will. David Catron’s piece today at the American Spectator is worth a read. Catron, like myself, has a very keen eye towards the bureaucratization of our country and how this is a cancer.
