A pack of cowardly hypocrites just sold out their hero president, betrayed their agenda, lied to the American people, and it all happened in one day over a trade bill. We probably shouldn’t expect anything better from Democratic Party members who have to look to the future and answer to their union and special interest overlords as election season nears.
It is highly unlikely that McDonald’s corporate elite were quaking in their boots when a horde of Fight for $15 derelicts descended on the company’s headquarters in Oakbrook, Illinois. Most of us were working that day so we couldn’t join in on the fun.
If you are sending more money to the IRS this month and feel anything but anger and hatred towards the evildoers in Washington who skimmed your paycheck all year and still want more, you are one of two things. You are either a tax cheat who really should be paying more or you are a moron.
All of you fiscal conservatives who keep demanding that we pass a law for a balanced federal budget? Give it up. A federal budget that doesn’t leak at the seams and rack up unimaginable debt for every taxpaying American is unthinkable.
Most of us get a few days off at the holidays. We don’t get a long Christmas break like members of Congress. We don’t get a trip to Hawaii like the president, but most of us don’t have jobs, salaries, and publicly-funded perks that provide that kind of indulgence.
The Obama propaganda machine has given us a new social class, a conglomeration of middle and working class families said to be suffering from low pay and meager job benefits. This group doesn’t have a name. It was created out of sheer political opportunism and the need to confuse voters about what they are supporting.
How do you sell a middle class bailout when the recession is over and you have taken credit for the economy coming back, when Washington is wallowing in debt, and when you have to promise more spending for votes? You fall back on catchy political slogans that don’t sound like slogans and repeat them until people believe them.
