The American People Get What They Deserve
The old tired refrains taxes are too high, the government is in everybody business, my rights have been violated, etc. These are all bogus bitches, because we have gotten what we asked for. Here's what the government is supposed to do for us.
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
A few of the things the government does, not included above:
Public education, Welfare, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, WICC, ADC, Pell Grants, Day Care, IRS, Airline bailouts, Chrysler bailout, rebuilding homes of the uninsured after tornados, hurricanes, etc, farm subsidies, the Arts, Public Radio, and Television, building parks, taking land from private citizens, controlling guns, paying the interest on the deficit.
Government has become unmanageable, because the citizens have become hogs at the tit, gimmee, gimmee, breast feeders, beggars, and louts. We creep closer and closer to Socialism daily, because of the lack of education and greed of the citizenry.
The Congress is pretty much made up of lawyers, and used car salesmen that couldn't make it in private life, and have subsequently gone into charity management. These swine want to be elected, and to reach that goal every term. They must give more and more of other people money away. And so it goes, never ending growing exponentially each year. These people along with the citizenry have no concept of economics and paying one's own way. The same person that gripes about welfare, will drool when Social Security is spoken of. We all hate the politicians, with the exception of our own, so we continue to elect the crook we know, that is when half of us vote.
Then there is medical care. More bogus bitches. medical insurance is too high, I have to wait too long to see the doctor, I have to pay a co-pay, I need some of those pills as seen on TV, I have a cold, I need antibiotics, my doctor is a bonehead, other people are abusing the health care system, we need nationalized health care, and so on. Chances are that YOU are one of the problems. Do you go to the doctor for things like tunnel carpal, colds, aches, and pains, nail fungus, dietary information, jock itch, athletes foot, yeast infections, nose bleed, gas, the shits, rashes, indigestion, Lupus, Asthma, Guilain-Barre syndrome, Hypoglycemia, type II diabetes (fat people disease), neurotic heart attacks, and other psychosomatic illnesses, especially after the doctor has said there is nothing wrong with you? Well then you are the problem. You are part of what is destroying the greatest health care system in the world, STOP IT! Most businesses allow their employees to accumulate a couple of weeks of sick leave a year, and people seem to think they are required to take it immediately, and when they fall ill whine about not having sufficient sick leave.
Lawyers and the people that utilize them are doing their part to destroy America. Everybody bitches about these Neanderthals, but given the opportunity to sue their brother or sister are on them like white on rice, but god forbid anybody would sue you.
The divorce rate is staggering, because people care more about their genitals than their off spring.
Many young women seek out breast enhancement over brain enhancement.
While the environment goes to hell in a hand basket people are unwilling even to drive a slightly smaller car, SUVs and pickup trucks rule the day go to a Sierra club rally and see how many of these behemoths you see. The government requires that a mosquito infested pond be created in front of every new business, yet recently my city fathers gave away one of the few remaining natural wetlands in our area.
People complain that we have become out of touch with each other and yearn for the good old days, but walk around with a cell phone protruding from their ear. We have the Internet, voice mail, cell phones, pagers, radios, and it is still damn near impossible to get in touch with someone when necessary.
So please don't say you're not getting your fair share, chances are you are getting exactly what you asked for and consequently what you deserve.
