Let’s have a quick tutorial about minimum wage, shall we? It’s more simple than you might imagine.
When you don’t have 30 million illegal aliens working for cash and eating for free, there is no need to raise the minimum wage. Period. The End. The supply for labor works off of demand, and there’s no reason for artificial embellishments and government intervention if you just let the water rise. Moreover, you don’t need to try to find a manner in which to fund Medicaid, because, thank you Jimmy Carter, we’re still paying out other people’s money for it as well as Medicare.
What I’m saying is that the government is not needed in order to make the trains run on time, and, instead, they run on time a lot better when the government is not meddling with everything.
Now, let’s contrast that notion with the State of the Union Address. Some “state.”
The selling of the point that we need more government is a ruse, and the reason it’s a ruse is because it comes with the little tag line of “power”, and that power means someone tells you what to do instead of you relying upon yourself to determine what to do. I happen to have had wonderful parents who raised me to be self-reliant, as were they and their immigrant parents, so as I now approach retirement I don’t need a nanny, and neither do my children, and to suggest we “need” that supplement is insulting, as it should be to any grown-up.
Oh, my. Hot button there.
Grow up. I might have just insulted half of America.
Are you part of the train, or part of the luggage? Do you prefer being a baby or do you wish to nurture? In more plain language, do you want to suck on the teat forever or stand on your own?
Now, according to Mr. Obama………………….we can’t. We “need” him. I don’t think so, Scooter, and he betrays his true ambitions by suggesting so. Perhaps he still needs his mommy, but if you’re the leader of the free world it’s high time you quit suggesting everyone else needs a lifeline, and don’t present false promises or guarantees for which we simply cannot pay.
Ronald Reagan and presidents of his ilk challenged us to be better, and if anyone remembers the line from JFK it is to ask what you can do for your country————-even though he stole it from Khalil Gibran——-it’s the sentiment that counts. Government is not a business, and why is it not a business? Because it doesn’t have to show a profit, because if it had to show a profit it would be a Chapter 7 organization.
If people in Congress have to show no responsibility why would they challenge the citizenry to do so as well? It’s a pattern of behavior and a pattern of irresponsibility, and so it goes……..malingerers lead by malingerers, and walking down a path of unsustainable means.
When does it end? The day the printing presses quit running, and that is downright shameful.
