50+ Years of Welfare Spending & Military Gluttony

 Dave Manuel 

Despite this government largesse, 37 million Americans continue to live in poverty. In fact, despite nearly $9 trillion in total welfare spending since Lyndon Johnson declared War on Poverty in 1964, the poverty rate is perilously close to where it was when we began, more than 40 years ago.

Dave Manuel re Historical Military Spending (Additional stats)

Obscene spending, whether for creating a welfare dependency apparatus or over kill, so to speak, defense spending. It is all ridiculous and MUST STOP. Foreign aid, military/police intervention,  job & political bureaucracy security.  Both parties are married to a history of growth and both own the tumor. Debt, who holds the debt, welfare dependency, military bloat. Shame!

Pelosi Blames Republicans: Same Ol’ Blame Game

Pelosi shut the hell up! The sooner this twit fades into the political graveyard the better. Of course, she has amassed wealth during these terrible economic times through sweetheart dealings. No questions asked of that.

Sarah Palin: said it before, say it again….get off the bus! Go up and fish with hubby. Leave us alone. You sound like a shrill, annoying (plug in your own annoying noun). Please stop. You are a non-helpful distraction; a Trump of sorts. That said the rest of the field is not inspiring either.

Oh, the economy: ALL indicators are down. “Have added 2 million jobs” is BS! “Investing in the future” is equally absurd. You have failed this country with your stimulus spending and blame game. The reality of potential status downgrades and debt distribution abroad is frightening. The boy wonder is a campaigner, organizer with pom poms. Nothing more than a speech whore with an oversized ego….   STOP THE BLAME GAME; CLASS ENVY; SCARE TACTICS!!!!

Kudos to Ryan et al for standing up and taking the lead on our debt load.

Pawn of Social Justice or Defender of Liberty?

Don’t be played into class envy, political correctness or to the tit of the Nanny. Recognize if you are slowly, incrementally being swayed into class envy. Are you able to care for yourself and your family? Are you sitting on your ass, unemployed? Are you bitter? Are you angry? Angry at who? Banks, business, the rich? Wake up and look about you. How do you know what you know? Are you a pawn to the mantra’s of the Left? Wake up and become independent. Defend liberty and not the progressive’s social justice BS. All that does is create envy, class envy. And, make you mentally dependent….then physically dependent upon the State. Are you a robot? Group thinker?

Climate Change Debate (Yes, a debate at least)

“Last month, in another study, also released in Science, Oregon State University researchers claimed to settle the debate over what caused and ended the last Ice Age. Increased solar radiation coming from slight changes in the Earth’s rotation, not greenhouse gas levels, were to blame…..

Nonetheless, what I find interesting is the eagerness of the authors and the media to make it clear that this doesn’t have any particular significance for the debate over climate change….

But we live in a moment when we are told, nay lectured and harangued, that if we use the wrong toilet paper or eat the wrong cereal, we are frying the planet. But the sun? Well, that’s a distraction. Don’t you dare forget your reusable shopping bags, but pay no attention to that burning ball of gas in the sky — it’s just the only thing that prevents the planet from being a lifeless ball of ice engulfed in darkness. Never mind that sunspot activity doubled during the 20th century, when the bulk of global warming has taken place.”

Green=Red

Green=Red

My closet is full of clothing. My garage is full of too much stuff, much forgotten or unused. Stuff. Is it my business that I have it? Is it anyone else’s right to lecture me, us, on the consumption of goods? Saw the recent Hollywood Pathetic Love Fest for Wonder Boy Service Call. Recall the guy earnestly saying to grow more and consume less? Well, now on the surface (it always is on the surface) that seems fine (their arguments are always fine up front) to have a back yard garden or terrace container garden. Just 50 years ago everyone in my neighborhood had a sizable back yard garden. Consume less. Well, yes. Save more and be more frugal in these hard times. Not bad advice. BUT! that is not the ultimate intent of the planners.

You will be self contained unit consuming less and eating your kale and tomatoes. Your savings, your frugality will benefit others. The State will decide how to divide you savings….your forced savings. Forced frugality. Forced co-ops? Forced this and that. All this nonsense ties back (yes I know you wondered) back to this climate change nonsense. Over focusing upon the sky is falling rhetoric of ‘scientist’ with a myopic view and the planners using the data to reduce our lives to frugal little consumers saving the planet.

Yes, stop pollution. Stop over development, but don’t crush it at all costs or for a Leftist agenda. Enough earnest little ‘bots running about lecturing and one step away from snitching you to the green gestapo. You know those little earnest twits will be the ones to call the authorities some day.

The debate is on and maybe the State Run Media will be counter balanced by questions, data, recalculations that bring honesty to the discussion (no discussion yet). I am tired of lock step propaganda spewed forth as fact. “Man is causing the disfigurement of the coastline with a planned resort.” “Man is causing the rise in sea levels.” On and on. No, I am not a scientist. But, for now, I have the freedom to call BS on the flock of crows that counter as false every scientist that counters the mantra. As scientist, isn’t it odd that many don’t seem to be intrigued by data that may suggest the earth is not flat.
