"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

Just Say No

New jobless claims rise unexpectedly...
House approves $290 billion increase in debt limit...
Obama signs $1.1 trillion spending bill...
House approves $155 billion for 'jobs'...
NBCNEWSWSJ POLL: Americans Souring on Democrats...
Congress Travels More, Public Pays...

These were the headlines from Drudge. Can we wonder why the poll says that Americans are souring on Democrats? Reading just these headlines~ jobless claim rises, but we increase our national debt limit, the president signs a 1.1 trillion dollar spending bill, and Congress(all the while we as a nation have been in at the very least a recession) travels more- courtesy of you and me~rattles the brain.

Obama told ABC News’ Charles Gibson in an interview that if
Congress does not pass health care legislation that will bring down costs, the
federal government “will go bankrupt.”(source)

I seem to recall that it was portrayed similarly for the Stimulus Package. If it was not passed ASAP that the nation would fail overnight.(funny thing is that very little of the money has even been spent-yet it was a crisis of the nth degree).

Now if the health care legislation does not pass the federal government will go bankrupt? Here's a clue- STOP SPENDING. And for the record, all those wasteful things you found in Medicare and Medicaid- WEED OUT. And to add money to the government coffers, why not fine those who are employed even in the White House for their tax delinquencies. These bumps that we constantly have to read about, are prison time for the Joe the Plumber types out here in non government status land.

I am done with the threats of the nation's demise if we do not spend a trillion here, a trillion there, everywhere a trillion. The MSM is immune to how vast these numbers are and speak about them as if we were going out for a burger and fries at McDonald's. The spending that has happened in the last ten months is fast tracking our nation into a serious crisis. We are on the ice and it is cracked and we are just waiting to spill through to the depths below.

We cannot spend our way out of debt. You know that this is impossible, yet the President keeps saying that this is what we need to do. Please click here to see what a trillion dollars looks like. The only way that the government can keep spending this kind of money is if they have some way to print their own money- oh wait, they can. We have not seen an improvement in our economy. We have seen a steady and consistent loss of jobs, and we have seen prices go up in all markets. This is a terrible way to close the year, and I believe that Americans need to prepare now for the times coming ahead. Logic and reasoning seem to go over the head of the government. Why? Aren't they the uber-educated? If they are acting illogical it must be because they desire this outcome- it is hard to read any other way.
