I am completely disgusted with pretty much all politicians, and even more so with politicians that try to position themselves as “I’m a [insert noun] first, not just another politician.” Those ones are dangerous because half the time they don’t understand what the heck they are dealing with. I’m talking to you, Dr. Joe Heck!
I’m tired of politicians who think we can balance the budget without increasing taxes.
I’m tired of politicians who think we can balance the budget without addressing our 2 1/2 wars.
I’m tired of politicians who think that just because I’m not 55 yet, I just need to kiss Social Security goodbye.
I’m tired of politicians who are so ignorant of history that they think there can be a “private sector” solution to Medicare.
I’m tired of politicians who use the phrase “death tax,” when only a few thousand people will ever pay it.
I’m tired of politicians who use coded words to whip the ignorant into a frenzy. (“Domestic enemy”? Why not just call him Satan or the Anti-Christ? What a shame that you really mean he’s an “uppity ******”!)
And most of all, I’m tired of the other politicians who won’t call them out on this nonsense. Don’t even get me started on the media that lets them lie on the air and call it the truth.
Go ahead. Close down the government. Do it! Do it right at “tax day” and completely screw yourselves.
In Closing: defense; a man and his boat; two takes on dessert sushi; WHY??; if you won’t stop for humane reasons, or justice reasons, how about fiscal reasons?; about time; I like Kathy; it’s all about cheap labor; gaming inflation through housing prices; if you haven’t heard about the real Tea Party yet, watch it today; resist BAMTOR; I knew this would happen! Throw the book at them!; and a picture of a random cat. If anybody knows the source, put it in comments so I can attribute it:
