Supposedly there is a "sucker born every minute" but in America there is one born nearly every second. With the exception of my dear readers, of course, Americans will fall for practically anything.
I guess having to give the banksters all of those trillions really hit us hard in the pocket book.
Also, according to USA Today, the government owes a record 63.8 trillion dollars. If you read further in the article, it points out that there is just too much money going to social programs.
Hell, those nasty no good s.o.b's taking our money for things like social security and medicare. This really is enough to make an American mad.
But what the article conveniently forgets to mention is that nearly half our tax dollar goes to pay for military obligations.
Oops, they must have forgot about that one.
Americans are suckers.
We will get all upset over the aged and disabled getting some help but we won't think too much about giving nearly half of our tax dollars away paying for wars (past, present, and future). We also didn't get that upset about giving trillions to the finance guys who rip us off daily on our credit cards, home and auto loans, and just about anything they are involved in.
So the push is on in the managed, corporate controlled American media to tell us that we can't afford to pay for social programs, so we will just have to do with almost nothing. In the mean time, terrorist weapons of mass destruction will continue to get built in this country for trillions and Americans will sadly think that is for defense.
Americans will unfortunately be sucked into all of this because our "progressive" President Obama will continue to tell us that there is no more money. The Republicrats here in the United States will all agree with our leader, reluctantly, and terrorist weapons will continue to be built and empire will continue to be funded while Americans lose nearly everything.
Americans are suckers!
