Basic Math

It is becoming painfully obvious that America is terminally stupid. Now I don’t mean your garden variety, porch sitting, tobacco spitting stupid, but rather the swallow the gun barrel, deer in the headlights, felony stupid. And the latest statistics on Obama’s approval ratings says it all.

52% of America says that Obama and Congress are spending us into oblivion, while as much as 63% says el Presidente is doing a fine job. Well folks, unless 52 and 63 somehow now equals 100, America is further in the tank than I thought. Jesus people, if you can make sense out of this you are ready to fill a few slots at Treasury.

To be more specific, Obama has failed to keep any promises he made during his campaign, or since. But now that he has spent more money in the last 3 months than all presidents before him combined, with not so much as one success in saving jobs, homes or businesses, he enjoys approval ratings beyond Elvis Presley. Now that is Stupid cubed.

Now I don’t want to go a rant here, but someone needs to tell me what the hell is going on when the majority of our Country doesn’t realize that their heirs will inherit a debt that will shackle every newborn with over $100,000 in debt, just to paying interest, forget principle. And for what. To bailout banks and auto companies who should have gone through bankruptcy as a matter of practice, or to let a few hundred thousand union auto workers go home and watch Oprah at 80% pay, with full health benefits. Geesh, where do I sign up.

No people, what we have here is a front row seat to the undoing of America. When our Administration has the temerity to take money from 82% of non-union workers, who don’t have a gold plated health plan or a diamond encrusted retirement plan and hand it to those who do, just to maintain a solid voting block, well the country has gone off the rails.

Mr. Obama and his minions are about to discover the wrath of America that he had no idea existed. And having the likes of Arlen Specter leaving the life boat to get back on the Titanic isn’t exactly a move that inspires confidence.
