Free Stuff Party
The great depression and dust bowl created an era of massive poverty. Most, who were caught in this destitution, did not lose their pride and were grateful and humbled when receiving any kind of aid. Many felt it shameful not to be able to provide for ones self, let alone a family. It was a time of bare essentials, patched up clothes, worn leather soles and heels, toy-less birthdays and Christmas's, stale baked goods and many meatless meals.
Even today's genuine poor are no where near to what I just described. Many can be seen as yesterday's lower middle class. There are areas in the world where people would gladly change places with them and feel blessed. This doesn't mean their needs should be ignored nor compassion withheld.
What blemishes this scenario is a huge number of people working the system and making a mockery out of its intent; abetted by our President and assisted by his capo, David Axelrod, who abused it politically, for the votes that gave him another four years, to complete the destruction of America as we have known it; a populous of creative individualistic entrepreneurship and a Norman Rockwell image of our country they view as pornographic by his entitlement abuser constituencies, who are the real pornographers of our country.
They are a group professing pseudo poverty, to claim the spoils of Obama's dismantling of private enterprise and toils of the productive tax payer. Non tax payers who have paid their dues are not under this banner. This is not the Democratic Party of our parents and grandparents. It isn't the party of FDR, Harry Truman, JFK and even the one Ronald Reagan once belonged to and grew out of. It has become an unrecognizable organization of questionable character, leaning dangerously toward what this nation has always fought against.
I have coined a new, more appropriate name for it... "The Free Stuff Party!" And now, while most of us are tightening our belts because expenses of our essentials and taxes going up, with no plan to cut down on government ex penditures, the President continues to spout the phrase, "Fair Share." No matter how much we shell out, the fair share revenue will not go to reduce the astronomical debt, but instead, a new executive order just executed by this arrogant, pompous ass, lifts the ban on pay freezes for federal employ ees that gives raises to the Vice-President, members of Congress and circuit and district court judges. How different is it fromthe board room of a corporation, lavishly compensating upper management?
Is this a great country, or what?
