Even Øbama can't keep a straight face when talking about his budget.

So, Øbama calls his new “budget” Winning The Future or, as aptly abbreviated, WTF. Listening to this, any American should be questioning it in the manner of its apropos abreviation.

WTF?! There are no spending cuts in this budget; only increased spending and, just as bad, increased taxes. How does it deliver on any assertion that it is a deficit cutting  budget? I don’t get it. Spend more, tax more, economy contracts due to the increased taxation, which, in turn, causes tax revenues to decrease… I don’t see the deficit reducing  power in this new, improved formula.

WTF?! Where does Øbama get his interpretation of “From whom much is given, much will be asked.”? This was not Jesus’s call to government to swoop down and take from one to redistribute to another, but his call to the individual to share his or her gifts. It would be better for Øbama and his minions to cite “Give unto Caesar what is Caesar’s” in his never-ending quest for that which is in your pocket; your bank account. At least then, he would be showing you his true stance. Like that blithering idiot Michael Moore, Øbama clearly believes that money is a national resource and should not be held by any individual. He will twist and pervert biblical phases in order to justify his goal; however, do not be deceived. Jesus always spoke with regard to the individual. He never asked a prospective disciple to go and sell all of their things, all of their family’s things, those of their neighbor, and of their neighbor’s neighbor – and to give the proceeds to the government so that they could redistribute wealth to those who have learned to live off of other people’s charity rather than upon the fruits of their own labor. No! Not in any bible I’ve ever read.

Unfortunately, seeing an advantage that I don’t quite see, the church has allowed -yea, they have promoted – this perversion of The Word into charity at gunpoint as it seemed to fit their purpose.  There is an incredible number of Catholics, in particular, and Christians in general who espouse the view that social welfare programs as administered by the Federal Gummint answer Jesus’s call to charity and stewardship. Hardly. Paying your taxes vs. going to prison is clearly not the exercise of intellect and free will God calls us to in doing His works. And what has allowing the Federal Gummint take this role done, but breed a population of folks who will no longer lift a finger to help themselves? A culture that squanders its God-given gifts because they’re paid to? From these to whom God has given the gifts of intelligence, talent, industry nothing can ever be expected except for their outstretched, wanting hands and their ingratitude. Their gifts are squandered. I’d imagine God is not happy. Now that the Federal Gummint has seen fit to walk over the constitutional rights of those same Christian churches, I wonder if they are revisiting their complicity with the progressives and, in particular, The Great Society? In any case, they’re not happy right now, either.

When newly appointed budget director Jeff Zients was grilled by the Senate Budget Committee, populated from that august community that hasn’t managed to pass a budget of their own for over 1000 days, he could offer nothing better than regurgitated Øbama sound bites designed to placate those who aren’t really interested in real substantive answers (ie: the main stream media). When questioned what the budget does, for instance, to prevent Medicare from going belly up, this elocutionary genius could only offer up long-worded vagaries, generally indicating that, um, Medicare is kinda on its own – unless all those other people get their act together; to wit: “[Medicare must] increase its productivity, decrease variation in care which results in poor healthy outcomes … while preserving the compact” WTF?! How does this drivel  answer the question at hand? First off, Medicare is a program of the Federal Gummint and therefor, can do nothing on its own, except mandate action from others (something Øbama is quite expert at). I can imagine this imbecile answering with hands behind his back, head down, toe dragging back and forth in a half-circle in front of him, as if he’s an elementary school student trying to BS his way out of a missing assignment! In this same session, he could not give a direct answer whether there were actual spending cuts  in Øbama’s WTF budget. When queried regarding the Senate’s failure to pass a budget since The Øne came into office, he elucidated on his inability to fathom “the mechanics and the process” of doing so, even though the mechanics and process  are spelled out in The Constitution, and that every congress prior to this one has  somehow managed to do it. And Øbama chose this to be his budget director? WTF?!


One Response to “WTF?!”

    WTF? Indeed. So succinct. So true. It’s astounding to me that the gov’t and its lovers can’t comprehend this: if you earn (take) $25,000 a year (aka, taxes,) you can’t spend $40,000 a year (our gov’t expenses,) very long without going bankrupt. Nor can you take in taxes 50% or more of everyone’s income in city, county, state and federal taxes (regardless of as “income” or some other sort of tax, all of which are on “income,”) and expect the people to do well. History has shown, through the very untold story of thousands of Medieval tax revolt stories, that whenever a government takes more than 50% the people rile up and go to revolution. It’s going to be an ugly next 4 to 8 years, however, alas, for whether Obama or one of the Obama-lite current Republicans get in, it’ll be more of the same. I see no sign of change. I detect no flicker of hope. I might not be your, um, average American (and you’ll recognize my name from Stilton’s site, I’m sure,) but I sure can count.
