That Giant Sucking Sound

It's my understanding that if the President got his way with taxes, the additional inflows would run the government 47 hours at our current rate of spending. Yet that is the all he cares to talk about, well that and class warfare.
The Republicans should go along with him on the taxes and then stand with their hands on their hips and say, "Okay, now what?" "What about the other 363 days, can we stop giving out entitlement funds now? Then yelling they should say, "IT'S THE SPENDING, DUH!"
The money he wants to tax at a higher rate has already been taxed over and over. But taxing and taxing again is how casinos make their money. They return 93-95% of every dollar bet but when you run the winnings through again and again, you eventually lose it all.
A federal government that vacuums up all of the capital from the private sector and uses it to buy votes with the use of entitlement and union payouts is not long for this world.
I hope in tonight's State of the Union address he lets us know which country we will fall to so we know which language we should begin learning. How much are those Rosetta Stone Cd's anyway? Do they have Russian?
The great part of having satellite TV is that we won't have to watch our leader put his nose in the air and stare into the distance.
Pawn Stars is on the History Channel tonight. Some good news after all.

Wait... Pawn Stars was LAST night! Thanks to DVR, we always have something to watch.

I never watch for fear of drawing my own conclusions. That would ruin it for the broadcasters and spin doctors who can't wait to tell me what to think.

Janell said...

Yeah, that sucks all right.

The King's Speech was on, too. It's on again Wed and Fri nights. Watch it if you haven't yet.

I watched half of the "speech". That's when Char came down and said, "Stop the yelling, turn the TV off, sit the remote down and back away slowly."
