You know you’re not in Kansas anymore when:
- Both Political Parties of a Government that hasn’t passed a budget in over 1,000 days, hooked on a $ Trillion deficit-spending habit, amassing a “greatest threat to our national security” mountain of debt, goes on the attack…AGAINST CONSERVATIVES!
- A Wisconsin Governor elected to solve the fiscal woes of his state, converts a $10 Billion deficit into a $300 Million surplus during the worst financial downturn since the Great Depression…IS RECALLED!
There is a danger in holding a set of passionate beliefs; The risk of an attachment that would preclude our ability to accept a conflicting reality is a danger to all parties in a free society.
There is an even greater danger in having our heads so far up our own butts, that we are precluded from both sight and air!
The fix is in people. Both political parties are singing from the same hymnal of delusion. The discussion is framed and moderated by the very same people who got us into this mess. And here’s the bottom line…
There is not, and there will never be a recovery on the foundation of a lie! There can only be the seed of a far deadlier scenario put off till a later date…just as we are seeing in the Euro Zone! Only we are creating our own Greek Tragedy after witnessing their folly! That’s kind of like jumping after our parachute packer informs us that he forgot to pack the chute!
At some point, the rational thinker must put his finger up to the wind of reason. At some point even the most jaded among us has to feel the flames of the counterfeit recovery! The conspirators seek to lull what the heart looks to revive…and the hour is getting late.
Their entire plan rests on the soothing quality and effectiveness of their well orchestrated lullaby. Our survival will depend on our willingness to see with our own eyes and listen with our own ears…to every sight and sound!
“Figures don’t lie,
…but liars figure.”– Samuel Clemens
“If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” – Winston Churchill
