We May Be Speaking Chinese

August 8, 2011

There are so many things I would like to say, but I know I won’t have the energy or, for that matter, ambition to cover everything. Besides, where is it written that the world is waiting to hear what I have to say on everything? How many more words can be written about the obscene debt we have in America?

I would like to share some thoughts with you on a few ideas. First of all, why do Congressmen (and, of course, Senators are also part of Congress as are members of the House of Representatives), have to have so many staff members and so many different offices? It just so happens that in addition to the large salaries and expense accounts all members can also finagle another large perk: a junket. A junket is any trip abroad to whatever part of the world that public servant wants to visit. Just think of a female moron like Nancy Pelosi and all the free travel she has gotten. Not only does she travel free, but so do staff members who are necessary for the former speaker to do her job. And what kind of job has she done? To prove the rectitude of the word moron as applied to Madame Pelosi, I will relate the events of her trip to Syria a couple of years ago. While there she told that mass murderer, Bashar al-Assad, the prime butcher, president of Syria, that the U.S. wished to improve relations with Syria. But, I don’t think you need much reminding as to how inept Nancy and her Democrat colleagues are. In defense of Ms. Pelosi you might say, “Didn’t Secretary of State Hillary Clinton refer to the murdering dictator, Bashar al-Assad as a reformer?”

Look at all the money Hillary spends and all the people that do the work in state department. Many of those people are only there because they are politically connected. All of this is par for the course. Most people who have those jobs in government are connected. So, when Congressman Barney Frank talks about the Defense Department and the American military being involved all over the world, including still being in Europe and on the 38th parallel in Korea, when he talks about the spending of $200 billion annually just to maintain these forces, I say, “Bravo Barney Frank . . . I never thought I would see the day that I agreed with anything you say.”

The bottom line is that if we ran government like a business where we would have our feet held to the fire by our stockholders, we would not be running deficits. And before I forget, what about all those czars that Barack the boastful has appointed? Their salaries and staffs add more billions to the deficit. But, I am afraid we will have to wait until the entire house of cards collapses before we do anything that really stops the hemorrhaging. By that time, we will be speaking Chinese.
