Bumper sticker

Dateline: Tue 29 Jan 2013

This is Facebook lite, but so what?

"Tell Barack I'm baroke" bumper sticker. Posted by a friend. Young friend, too. And NOT a white male.

And....George Will and Charles Krauthammer both had good columns that the Star published within the week. Will is writing today on conservatism, the prez and global warming (a subject on which science is divided; it's real, but how much of it is man-made?), and more importantly, Charles K, who began, "The media herd is stunned to discover that Barack Obama is a man of the left. After 699 teleprompted presidential speeches, the commentariat was apparently still oblivious. Until Monday's inaguration address, that is...It was a paean to big government. At its heart was Obama's pledge to 1) defend unyieldingly the 20th century welfare sate and 2) expand it unrelentingly for the 21st."

Once again, the main point, and really the only point: Obama ignores the financial crisis....and instead helps to construct "an increasingly insolvent entitlement state."

That's where the cancer gnaws. The rest of it is all fluff -- gay marriage, climate change, gun control. If we don't have the dignity of work and jobs, we won't have a country as we've known it.

I feel like an old white man. (That's the only demographic who voted overwhelmingly against Obama). I also feel like the ants in the fable about the frivolous grasshopper and the hard-working serious ants....the younger generation are grasshoppers, merrily farting around. But when the winter hits, who will provide for the grasshopper?

Never mind. That metaphor is not working. Nobody will.

You can't pin the condition of the US economy on Barack Obama when the GOP controls the House of Representatives.

The economic mess is somewhat Obama's. He had the opportunity to do something, and blew it. Yeah, the problem had brewed for years, with a license to steal granted to the banks by the Congress.

This isn't a welfare state, which is as silly a phrase as its meaning. Lots of us work, hard, pay taxes, and help others. Some play the system, it's true. Getting rid of them takes generations or jobs. Who invests in the jobs? Oh, right......
