WORK! Just got through watching CNN news, they had that crook Chris Dodd on saying that the economy is starting to turn around, all we need is time. No sh*t, Chris, like we didn't know that. That's all any economy needs is time, but with Obama on pace to spend more than the other forty three presidents combined, we may not have enough time. Economic fact: the level of spending our illustrious leader is planning is unsustainable, period. Sure, it will work in the short term, but it cannot be sustained over time. If you think it can I urge you to check your history books, the USSR fell apart because they couldn't keep on spending what they didn't have. And who in their right mind would lend money to a communist nation (a point Obama ought to keep in mind). Economic fact: people cannot live in homes they can't pay for, nor drive cars they can't pay for. This is because the people actually paying for these people, the taxpayer, will sooner or later wake up and call for an accounting from their represenatives. And that means Chris Dodd and Barney Frank too, who sit up there all high and mighty calling for investigations into why the banking system is all screwed up when they know full well that they are the cause of it all. Passing regulations that require banks to lend to people who would not qualify otherwise does not suspend the laws of economics no matter how much the liberals believe it would. Economic fact: the creditors lending money to this country are going to ask for more stringet terms, i.e. higher interest rates, or more collateral. Let's face it the full faith and credit of the government isn't going to cut it with the Chinese, they already talking about going off the dollar standard. If you are perceived as a credit risk your interest rate is going to be higher. If you don't believe me, ask for a loan at your local bank, if they are giving loans! Economic fact: we, as a country, no longer make anything. Which begs the question: what are we going to sell to the rest of the world so we can earn money to repay the debt. I doubt our creditors are going to think that warm fuzzy feeling is payment enough! Economic fact: only forty five percent of the people in this country pay income taxes! The others have been corrupted by the welfare state into becoming non-producing leaches. They don't do anything, but beleive its their God given right to get welfare, food stamps, and any other kind of assistance because the producing rich steal their money. This notion is one Obama, Pelosi and all the other liberal morons perpetuate. Sooner or later the rich and semi-rich aren't to put up with being demonized and taxed to death. Here's an eye opening example: Governor Patterson of New York wanted to raise taxes on the rich this was opposed by Mayor Bloomberg. Why? Because in New York city, with a population of 8 million, the forty thousand rich people pay for seventy percent of the city's budget, and the good mayor thought if the tax increase went through the rich would begin to move to a more tax freindly environment. That's the U.S.A. in a nutshell. I don't know how liberals think, but I do know it does not work in the real world!!!!
