By all means, when the boat is sinking, the absolute best thing to do is to take on more water, just as a temporary "stop-gap" measure to get the boat to float again, right?
Am I missing something amazing here, like up is down, left is right, and taking on more debt will solve the financial problems CAUSED by debt to begin with?
At some point, you either have to conclude the entire lot of congress, all parties, are complete moronic idiots, or it's being done on purpose. No, really! Every conceivable way to make things worse is what is being foisted on us, the American Idiots.
Look, even tossing a coin yields a 50-50 ratio of heads to tails; even pure chance would dictate that without mal intent, the government's actions should not make things better or worse. Yet every decision goes one way: from bad to worse.
Some would say this is a pattern. It does not seem possible that those in charge who seek to make things better only make it worse, unless it is on purpose.
And need I mention the growth of government packed into the latest stimulus bill? I mean, folks, if you have to borrow from your parents to pay off debt, that's one thing, but if you borrow the money and then use it to get into more debt, and then do it again, and then do it again, and then do it again...
Can it be any more obvious what is going on here? Americans, friends, thinkers, beware, this is a continuation of Bushanomics, and this is going to become an Obama-nation. You read it here.
