~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
Entitlements are mostly a myth
The earth begins with just dirt and water. And most of the water is in the oceans and non drinkable. There is also bacteria, disease and death. That is the reality that each of us are entitled to when we are born.
But many in the world wanted more than dirt, water and disease. Many like Americans and other countries worked very hard, demanded freedom, used Capitalism and Patriotism to build America into the greatest country the world has ever seen, with the highest standard of living. People worked hard and made things. Capitalism. Then they sold their hard work and made money to pay their bills, pay the US bills, and even help out US poor and give much money to other world countries who have not yet embraced freedom and capitalism.
But then came the stupids. The stupids were dumb and lazy and thieves as well. They looked around and said that the earth was not dirt and water. See? There are buildings over there and grocery stores over there with food! And the stupids screamed, "Freedom did not build that! Capitalism and job creators did not build that! No! Every time a politician plays golf a grocery store just appears complete with food. Every expensive vacation a politician takes builds hospitals and roads. You see? It is not working but being arrogant and sitting on your butt that really built the US," say the stupids.
And the US stopped working. It no longer paid its bills. Instead its deficits are so high that few will give it a loan any more. When the "Fed" Geithner went to China and told young students perhaps 12 years old in a class that investing in the US was a good idea, the students just laughed at him. Yes I watched the video. It likely was not on all channels. The Chinese are not stupid people. Why should they invest their money in a country of bums and thieves who now refuse to work? And so the US descends into chaos. Its first quarter GDP was a negative 2.9%. Negative. Our economy is getting worse.
Meanwhile leaders in much of the rest of the world are brighter. India and China have embraced the capitalism that America now hates. Hundreds of millions of them have been lifted out of poverty. Germany who embraces capitalism and exports five cars - Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Porsche, and Volkswagen and who has at least two large electronics companies that export - Siemens and Bosch, and who has the telephone company Deutsch Telecom who claims to be the largest in the world who at one time owned T-Mobile in the US, is a country who works. Germany who understands capitalism and works for a living pays its way and is told to bail out the rest of Europe, some of whom hate capitalism and that believe that some slaves in the world owe them a living.
Understand that the earth just starts with dirt, water and disease until someone gets off of their butt. Now watch your TV. Now see illegal immigrants demanding food, money while some of their supporters rip up American flags, as they did in Murrieta and yell "f*** America". Or look at the news in Detroit that was on last night. Yes, Detroit with continuous Democratic leadership and strong unions who shot capitalistic job creators did everything right, some would say (but not me), went bankrupt. And so the news ignores Detroit. It is, you see, a bad story for the left. Except a lady from Detroit on last night who screamed that the US was a piece of crap since it shut off her water to her house. I guess she does not know that for water to be there, someone must work at the filtration plant, and others must work like plumbers, construction workers, chemists, biologists, repair people. Nope to stupids, it is all about them. I agree totally to charity. I agree totally with helping others, as long as those others show some respect and are not running from work. I even agree to charity for those from other countries when we can afford it. But those also better respect our country, our flag and our laws, and for those who can, be willing to work and to pay taxes. But I do not agree with bums who say some other slaves should work twice as hard - since it is their entitlement to never work hard at all. US debt in 14 years added $12 trillion dollars since the bums and thieves are now winning.
I, for one, am totally disgusted to see the greatest country in the world turned into a country of stupid bums and thieves who sit on their butts and print money. The crooks should at least wear masks. But they have no shame. Thieves seldom do.
