Ever get the feeling that the “professionals” don’t know what they are doing? Lots of them don’t, and a few dangerous one’s use the others… nothing is “too big to (let) fail”, seems our new speak is rampant these days.
What’s the best thing to do when you are sent a piece of paper that devalued your other worth less government issued paper. Some say electronics so you can be distracted, some say gold so it can be seized, others say guns so they can be banned, while others still say heat in the most direct form.
Tax cuts without corresponding cuts in spending create debt, a debt which we will have financed at our expense.
This Saturday I attended my district’s Republican Caucus. Being a little apprehensive and curious prior to the event, I wanted to post about how the day went, so others might not have the same uncertainty. I had little luck finding an example that sufficed ahead of time, which would have made the whole thing much clear.
To quote an online post:
When the home builders were going broke, the government said:
“It’s their own fault, they build too many houses.”
When the mortgage brokers lost money, the government said:
“It’s their own fault, they made bad loans.”
When people lost their homes, the government said:
“It’s their own fault, they bought more house than they could afford.”
When investment firms and hedge funds can’t sell their bad investments, the Fed says:
“Here, here’s some money for all that worthless paper.”
- Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
- the Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
- I see no reason why Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot.
- Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t’was his intent to blow up King and Parliament.
- Three-score barrels were laid below to prove old England’s overthrow;
- By God’s mercy he was catch’d with a dark lantern and lighted match.
- Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring.
- Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
- And what shall we do with him?
- BURN HIM!
