Although this country has been operating under the two party system of government for longer than I can remember, at least one of your readers seems to believe the Tea Party, which has only been in existence for a little over two years, is responsible for the financial mess we are in. (Wednesday, “Bizzaro world doesn’t add up.”) The two major parties have been leading this country down the road to bankruptcy since FDR started the handouts over 75 years ago.
Personally, I think the idiots are the people that keep electing career politicians year after year even though these same politicians are the ones making matters worse. Maybe the letter writer needs government to take care of him, but I would rather they just get out of the way and let me live my life without having to support an endless line of parasites suckling at the public teat.
Getting our financial house in order is not increasing unemployment. Taxing the people that produce jobs to the point where they can’t afford to reinvest is what is killing employment. A bloated government stealing from the industrious to redistribute to the motivationally deficient is what is killing employment.
Someone once defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different result. Please explain to me how continuing to spend beyond our means is going to reverse our course.
The writer would have us believe that debt is not the problem. Talk about living in a bizzaro world!
