Fiscal Reponsibility

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on May 25, 2010

There is a bloggingheads diavlog up now about tea partiers. At about the 38 minute mark, Bob “sex symbol” Wright says “there’s a certain vagueness at the core”. It seems like fiscal responsibility is a buzz word…everyone is for it, but no one agrees how to get it.

Carl Hiassen makes a similar point. His column this week is about some of the things that nasty big government does. Like inspect food, give warnings for hurricanes, and provide material for comedians.

The numbers do not look good. One estimate of the population is 307006550, with a national debt of over $ 12,957,610,742,337. This works out to $42,206.00 per person.

The United States is in two wars at the moment ( that we know of). We have 100k troops in Afghanistan and 95k troops in Iraq. The cost of supporting these troops, in addition to the cost of caring for soldiers wounded in these operations, is immense.

PG has always been suspicious of anyone who says they are a fiscal conservative, and yet supports the wars in Babylon. Having 195k troops deployed eight time zones away=big government.

The reaction of our media is to obsess over whether a nit wit politician in Kentucky would have voted for a bill passed in 1964. This goes beyond arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. This is arguing what color you would have painted them.

Pictures are from The Library of Congress. The elders of the day worried about the young people. Thank you dangerousminds(spell check suggestion:Dangerfield) for the animation. Go take his survey, but only if you buy stuff that will impress his advertisers.
