Piling It Up

It doesn't require elaboration. One need only start a list and in short order you should be convinced that we are way too stupid to govern ourselves.

  1. AMTRAK. Want to take a passenger train somewhere? Forget it.
  2. USPS. Want to send a package or some important documents? Pick a free enterprise solution.
  3. Social Security. The ultimate Ponzi scheme due to become insolvent in 25 years.
  4. Medicare. Increasingly not accepted by doctors and hospitals, inadequate in payments, requires a free-enterprise supplement, and forecast for bankruptcy in five to seven years.
  5. Education. Free "fisting" kits and diagrams for middle-schoolers. Indoctrination of impressionable children in the infallibility of the administration.
  6. Airport security. Online manuals of how to beat the system, delays in travel, accelerating invasiveness, and political correctness that renders it a laughing stock.
  7. Job creation. False reporting, average cost per job approximately a quarter of a million dollars, and no long term result.
  8. Mortgage banking management. Mandated issue of loans to people with no proven income or credit history for property valued at less than the mortgage.
  9. Environment protection. Critical component of life cycle declared a pollutant and artificial market created to stifle the economy.
  10. Gun control. Highest violent crime rates in communities with most restrictive laws.
  11. Community improvement. Video documentation of corruption, proposed funding of underage prostitution and instruction in how to falsify welfare claims.
  12. Defense. Slashing of budgets, waffling on strategies and objectives, and apologies for strength and promoting democracy.
  13. Finance. Quadrupling of national debt in ten months and devaluation of currency and national credit rating.

I could go on, but you should get the idea. So let's put these guys in charge of a command/control economy and disbursement of healthcare.

The problem is, Im not sure we can stop them.

We have basically put them into a position of power and where those who are the biggest drags on a productive society wield great voting powers. I really think the Founding Fathers had it right when they limited the voting of representatives to educated land owners who actually had a stake in ensuring the taxation and power of government were kept in those who pay very little of the tax burden (if any at all) vote themselves more and more freebies from those who work their butts off. Very sad state of affairs we have here.

Tally-ho! Tally-ho! Check your eight o'clock. It's the Frankfurt School:

"To further the advance of their ‘quiet’ cultural revolution - but giving us no ideas about their plans for the future - the School recommended (among other things):

1. The creation of racism offences.
2. Continual change to create confusion
3. The teaching of sex and homosexuality to children
4. The undermining of schools’ and teachers’ authority
5. Huge immigration to destroy identity.
6. The promotion of excessive drinking
7. Emptying of churches
8. An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime
9. Dependency on the state or state benefits
10. Control and dumbing down of media
11. Encouraging the breakdown of the family"
