Vice President Biden speechifies at Florida State University that if the state cuts aid to education so will the federal government.

::::::::

Atop all their hypocrisy (constant wars and Greedster immunity from prosecution, etc) the Democrat leadership now propose that cutting federal funds to states that raise public student costs is the responsible solution.
.
This from the front page (2-8-2012) of the Tampa Bay Times report of Vice President Biden's speech at Florida State University in Tallahassee:
.
"Obama is proposing giving fewer federal aid dollars to colleges that increase (student) costs."
.
Now Dayem! there's a real democratic enhancement to the less parentally endowed students' resources and opportunity! Florida's Neanderthal government (right down the street in Tallahassee) runs the kids down with a school bus, then Uncle Joe descends from Obamaville to kick 'em while they're on the ground! "Take that! Florida kids, ya cudda avoided this by bein' born rich, or perhaps elsewhere!"
.
Well what's a poor guy awaiting a presidential accident to do? We really couldn't expect anything a bit more Rooseveltian, such as: "Obama is proposing giving more federal aid dollars to colleges that reduce (student) costs. We will not permit Florida kids to be denied the education that provides them some chance to compete with the more privileged born."
.
But hey, I know, that wouldn't fit too well with the Money Meisters that actually run our...er...THE gov'mint, and what with the cost of the wars and all........ And furthermore, that would be inadequate in the face of such as Rick Santorum's suggestion that Democrats are just a bunch of lily-livered liberal candy-asses. Well, they aren't that...are they?
.
But wait: Could the Biden intention be that the federal government will give states less so the states will provide more? and mumbo jumbo yellowbrickroady hoopedeedo doncha know! Certainly George Orwell writhes in his grave at this larceny of his "double-speak."
.
How abysmally naive and imbecilic does the Democrat "leadership" believe its "base" to be? Well you aren't that imbecilic...are you?
.
Well, does any of their "base" suggest that Obama glance at the example of my ancestral Norway, as well as most Western industrialized nations including those behind the once Iron Curtain, who provide tuition-free university education to all academically qualified entrants? Oh, and yes, single-payer medical care for all! Sure it costs tax payers money, at a steep progressive rate, which is what democracy (from the Greek "demo" for people) and one would think the Democrats should be all about.
.
"But we didn't realize that," you say? Oh my! Well, your leaders do, Mr. and Mrs. America, and it's time you woke up to the importance of Economic Opportunity in a democracy, and the key factor in that to a poor kid is Educational Opportunity, that is some chance to compete for a decent life as an adult with the Yalies and Princetonians.
.
"But what's to be done," you say, "with the only alternative being Romney and his rapacious bunch?" In other words, the usual numbskull response, the Democrat obsession that there may or may not be only one eternal God, but certainly ONLY ONE CHOICE of TWO ETERNAL political parties.
.
Well, would you go for three? "No way!" you say. So this is what needs to be done: The Democrats need to clean up their act, for the demos (the people) and for their own well being, not just for the ilk of the current posturing incumbents, and certainly not again for "winning" the "lesser-evil" sweepstakes. You need to reach down and grasp some integrity and the political courage to insist upon a DECENT SLATE OF CANDIDATES. (Y'all ever hear of a presidential Primary?)
.
Most of the rest of the world is watching you Democrats, and believe it or not, even Americans will eventually catch on to the duplicity of your chosen masters and dismiss the lot of you. I sincerely hope that you comprehend this reality and perform accordingly, so to enable me (never a Republican!) to vote for a major slate that provides DECENT REPRESENTATION FOR THE PEOPLE.
.
And, Democrats, be advised that the clock of integrity is ticking.

 

Leaving behind a treacherous government now addicted to perpetual war, its limitlessly greedy and power-lusting masters, as well as the retarded albeit smirky Republicans and their evermore clonish Democrat colleagues, a braindead electorate (more...)
