Can you even imagine eleven trillion? Do you know how much ELEVEN TRILLION DOLLARS is? One trillion is 1000 billion. One billion is 1000 million. One million is 1000 thousand. Got it? Simple really, in purely mathematical terms. But can you get your mind around 11 trillion of something? Can you mind’s eye picture that stack? I can’t.
And now 43 years after LBJ fired the first shot in this struggle, good ‘ole John Edwards went on a Poverty Tour. Say what? Talk about beating a dead horse. Of course I should not be surprised. To listen to the mouthpieces of the Left/Progressives/Socialists (sorry Lib’s, but like it or not they are one in the same), poverty in this nation is worse than ever. Again, say what?
Where do these clowns actually get the nerve to stand up in front of the world and make such a foolhardy statement? Let’s take a common sense look at this situation.
The facts are as follows: Either poverty has improved (less as a percentage of the population) since 1964, or it is worse than 1964. If these base political slogans are true then justify throwing more than the ELEVEN TRILLION DOLLARS already wasted on this problem. I mean if 11 trillion is accurate, and it is, then how will more money fix the problem?
Conversely, if the ELEVEN TRILLION DOLLARS were well spent and poverty has been lessened in any significant way, then the idiots making these statements are just a bunch of damned liars!
That leads me to wonder which is worse: voting for an idiot who will stand up in front of a TV camera and tell an out-right lie for the sake of garnering political support; or voting for someone so damned stupid they would advocate throwing more money at a problem that thus far ELEVEN TRILLION DOLLARS has failed to fix. Either way, this is just like Human caused Global Warming.
If you’re a Lefty, humans are the sole cause of Global Warming, particularly we Capitalists, poverty is terrible, Iraq is lost, the economy is the worst since the Great Depression (the only thing GREAT about the Depression, at least in the mind of a Lefty, was how the Democrat Party seized a death grip on the Legislative and Executive branches) and a myriad laundry list of ills pertaining to the human condition, most of which we Americans are responsible for. And generally, ya’lls pat answer to every problem is to raise taxes and throw more money at the problem.
On the other hand there are peeps like me. You know me. Rather brutish, .45 caliber toting Capitalist pig. My sources tell me that unemployment is at an all-time post-war low, interest rates and inflation again at or near post-war lows, more personal wealth per capita than ever before, more home ownership than ever, more minority home ownership, more minority owned business, more individuals in the stock markets, etc. My sources (my college geology and meteorology textbooks, current scientific data from NOAA, etc.), also tell me that Global Warming is real, but mostly a natural condition that has occurred as a cycle of warming and cooling since the planet formed an atmosphere. You know, FACTS!
That’s not to say that just cause most of us are better off than ever there are still many who need a hand up, and I’m all for that. But I, and most intelligent non-partisan souls (I do not count myself as non-partisan) look at the data and we see something entirely different than the Lefty’s see. But no matter how many facts to the contrary, Lefty’s see the early 21st Century as a time of unprecedented disparity, entirely human caused Global Warming, a “Culture of Corruption,” and a hundred other complaints I’m too lazy to specify.
I truly do not know how you peeps can get out of bed every morning. If I listen to your leaders, all hope is lost. I might as well cap myself. Glad I don’t buy the nonsense Leftist leaders peddle in order to get the kooky Left to back them in their grab for power.
And by the way, how the Hell do you Lefty’s lay claim to the term “Progressive?” I know, I know, it’s a late 19th, early 20th century term applied to a social reform movement. I’m not sure those that laid claim to the term originally had the right to it, and I know you present day Lefty’s have no right to use it. But it does sound nice, don’t it?
And true to the “dictionary” definition, Lefty’s do favor social reform, but so did your Commie brothers, or Comrades for you pinkos. It never ceases to amaze me how at every turn the Leftist Agenda is a more palpable, watered down version of Marxism/ Leninism/Communism, but boy will an ardent Lefty have an apoplexy if you tell them to their face that they are nothing more than a Commie without the Goddam guts to stand up and admit it. They hate it when I do that. But they sure love it when I call them “Progressive.” Makes ’em sound so enlightened, so forward thinking, so erudite. What a load of crap. And how come I’m not allowed to call you pinkos for what you are, but at every turn you fine peeps think it’s just fine to call me a Nazi or Fascist? It’s almost like if the Left didn’t have something to complain and whine about, they wouldn’t have anything to say at all. Sweet!
So Progressives, more money for an ill conceived war? One without a plan? One without a strategy to “win the peace?” Or is that just rhetoric? You know, the political term for LIAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????
