Are you kidding me!!
So … Record spending, record deficit, looming financial problems on all fronts! Obama points his finger at Congress, scolding them for not doing their jobs; and then … what does he do? He quietly signs another executive order and gives them a 1.5 to 2.0 percent pay raise! Unbelievable!
Instead of cutting spending to avoid the fiscal cliff, which is a direct result of out of control government spending; Congress delays cuts, increases spending, and raises taxes.
Meanwhile Obama gives speeches in which he says, don’t you dare prevent me from spending what I have already promised … even though, once a gain, we have exceeded our own debt limit.
What a freaking joke! Any of our grandchildren who can actually do math will never believe that we, their parents and grandparents, were this greedy, this lazy, and that this insanity actually happened. Hmmm! Maybe that is why we are so busy dumbing-down our public schools … so they won’t be able to do the math and tell how badly we screwed them over!
As my brother put it, we are living like some kind of a bloated, immoral monster … thoughtlessly gorging itself at the free “super buffet” while the ship we all share is sinking beneath our very feet! But hey … no problem! Not to worry! The “free buffet” is being run up on a charge card which will be presented to our children and grandchildren for payment. Aren’t we so very clever!?
NO! We are not clever! As a nation … we have become sick!! Unlike Michelle Obama … for the first time … I am very ashamed of our country!
