Well, the powers that be have all but done it again. They've gotten the rough draft for the bail out of the auto workers union.... er, I mean, the auto industry, hammered out and delivered to the presidency. Once again, I heard the words "equity shares" thrown out like a trial balloon and I swear it took the better part of a roll of duct tape to keep my head from exploding.
Back when they bailed out the insurance companies and then the banks, we said, "OK. That's as far as we go." Then they hit us with the housing industry debacle, and we said it again. Now they're about to rape us a third time for the auto industry and I think that America has finally, said, "Fine. You're not listening anyways, so do what you want!" I hear the same old voices crying foul but where is the hue and cry from main street? Why aren't the phones burning out their wiring from being called constantly.
I long for the "Shining City on the Hill" that Ronald Reagan described and fought for, but the farther along we go, the more I expect to see a red flag with a hammer and sickle, pulled up in place of old glory.
Barry announced his plan to start the largest infrastructure rebuilding plan since WWII and he's already telegraphed his intention to bull through his socialization of the health care industry. The banking and housing industries are, for good or ill, already in the clutches of the government, and the auto industry has shown that they will hike their collective skirts for a payday. So what's next? I foresee a bailout of the liberal media, next. And we're going to get little anorexic cars pushed down our throats, whether we want them or not.
Meanwhile, I'm listening to most if not all of the right wing radio hosts and I hear over and over again, people who are ready to shoot elected officials in an armed uprising. Truthfully, I'm nearly there myself. I have come to the realization that we the people, have lost control over our own government. The government has become that which our Forefathers fought against.
Here's my question of the day: What will be your trigger? What will the government have to take away in order for you to commit everything to the idea of resetting the great experiment and putting it back on track? With all frankness, I have to say that the only thing that keeps me from flying completely off the hook is my family. In the beginning of every revolt, the people who are later heralded as heroes, are at first called criminals. I cannot, yet, do that to my families. I'm not even sure what my threshold is, but I know it approaches.
