First, the US is facing a debt crisis again and cannot even pay the interest on the debt it already has unless the drunken sailors can borrow more. Some of the world’s largest economies; California, NY, Illinois, Michigan, all big blue states by the way, are already bankrupt and beyond saving; oh but the Feds will step in, they have to. These states make Greece look like a slinky toy and Detroits all over the US are coming fast. I am waiting for Las Vegas to start placing odds on what state, city or when the country goes bankrupt!
The US and its cities and states are crumbling. More than half of our budget is spent to prop up our society. The “Full Faith and Confidence” that American can manage its finances and pay its bills I assure you is long lost worldwide. And the kicker is that the US is its own largest debtor – pilfering government programs and the Treasury printing money to buy our IOUs. I think the public is so desensitized and breathing the opium of the masses that all this runs off their backs. Join me and pick up a stone and throw it right at the sun.
Second, when we turn on the TV and see Miley Cyrus jumping around in latex underwear and sticking her lounge out in a sexual way we know the bones of the country are decaying. We are buried under a ton of dirty politics, liberal progressive social welfare programs, bad economic decisions, taxes, a burlap social fabric, gun violence on and on and of course a looming fiscal meltdown.
Third, we have Bradley Manning looking for a sex change! Snowden is hiding in Russia. The NSA called out for protecting the US against attack. Syria to be attacked for sure. What else? More than I can write.
Fourth, and certainly not least, DC cannot gain enough collective courage to gut the pig of government, the budget, foreign aid, unearned social welfare programs and the over 130 trillion dollars of future funding obligation shortfalls.
That is just the last few weeks of headlines. Makes you sick doesn’t it!
