Libs Freak Out Over Idea of Spending Freeze

Haha, the libs are FREAKING out! From Politico, "Left Pans Obama Spending Freeze:"

“A spending freeze? That’s the brilliant response of the Obama team to their first serious political setback? It’s appalling on every level,” blogged New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, a Nobel Prize-winning economist.

Of COURSE we need a spending freeze. How else are we going to save up for this trillion dollar health care bill?

At least liberals are consistent. Even when it's Obama, they still blame the government for not being able to make money fall from the sky.

Sadly, the republican mantra seems to be cut taxes, increase spending and the democratic mantra is raise taxes, increase spending even more. It's time for a third party.

Whether it is faith based initiatives, fake "Humanitarian aid" meant to convert Indians (in India), funding anti-choice legislation, funding private military corporations, regulating woman's bodies, or telling certain people they cannot have the same privileges as male and female couples, or waging war our government knows how to flush my money down the drain in ways I don't want them to!

Or, how about completely abolishing the need for debt and borrowing entirely? How about we make it so that wages are increased enough to send the average Middle-class child to private schools (in order to avoid the social Darwinism of the public "educational" system to give more people a truly equal chance. Also, giving more people demerits for their hair touching their blazer collar should help people become circumspect regarding behavior) respectable universities, and a good house & car, all while living comfortably. Letting failed corporations fail (if Japan or Germany makes the superior product, I'll buy from them) and letting newer, superior industries topple the obsolete, destructive industries should work.

Our governments need to stop giving to outdated, outmoded, and incompetent corporations whose only interest is reinforcing the rigid and durable economic and social structure by not allowing the clean, alternative energy shareholders and executives to meet their full potential.

The Rockefellers, Gettys, and others have benefited society by creating goods and services and improving the standard of living, yet in today's day and age such obsolete industires have outlived their raison d'etre.

I think we were laughing a bit too soon. The Obamacare has passed and there really isn't much we can do to repeal it anytime soon. :( :( :( :(
