This Is About Self-Dealing, Not National Economic Health

The Democrats are clearly in grabbing mode, and this sort of thing is not going to stop until we citizens of the United States make it stop:

President Barack Obama’s Democratic allies in the House Wednesday muscled through a year-end plan to create jobs, mixing about $50 billion for public works projects with another almost $50 billion for cash-strapped state and local governments.
The unemployed would get continued benefits. But conspicuously absent from the plan were Obama’s recently announced initiatives to give Social Security recipients $250 payments, a tax credit for small businesses that create jobs, and a program awarding tax credits to people who make their homes more energy-efficient.

This is all about the government and public bureaucracies preserving themselves at the expense of national economic health, rewarding special interests, and expanding dependencies.
It’s worth noting, too, that although no Republicans voted for this particular legislation, there’s little reason to believe that all, or even many, of them will allow small government principles to stand in the way of their own benefit should they return to power. The political class requires wholesale revision.

“Government is the great fiction, through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else.”
“Everyone wants to live at the expense of the state. They forget that the state wants to live at the expense of everyone.”
“Often the masses are plundered and do not know it.”

Sorry to go off topic here, but, does anybody seriously doubt that someone isn’t saying something to these stupid f’n liberal global warming fools, by the record snowfall in Washington and Copenhagen?

Mike, it’s not “global warming” anymore, it’s “climate change.” It now includes both very cold and very warm weather.
Very scientific.

Dan,
They change the name to throw us a head fake. Like the stupid f’n liberals now want to call themselves “progressives”
Whatever. It’s all nonsense.
