There’s an old saying: “I’m Fat and You’re Stupid, But I Can Lose Weight”. This pretty well sums up why I like Chris Christie. He tells it like it is, come hell or high water. He treats people like adults. It’s up to the listener to decide if they are.
That seems to be the winning combination in New Jersey, where the 400lb tough guy is growing his fan base with a “pair” like no other. He is simply stating the obvious, then sticking to his guns. And the combination is hitting home, while many are losing theirs. Time has long passed when Hope and Change will salve the savage beast or union thugs.
If Christie knows anything, he knows that with only 10 to 12 percent of our work force being union, America, saddled with unsustainable pay and benefits, is sinking under the weight of the union model. So what if 70 or 80 or 90 percent were unionized? Oh yeah, that’d work.
But while New Jersey, Florida, Wisconsin and Ohio struggle with the reality that they are in deep doo doo, California looks to balance their books with tax increases and steep cuts in public services. Apparently the Rolls Royce health and pension plans, which are the ‘Third Rail’ of California public employee issues, aren’t being considered as part of the state bailout.
This brings us to where the upside down state and federal governments are going, to reverse our financial misfortunes. Whether it be cutting $61 billion from a $1.5 trillion dollar deficit or raising tax on beer and cigarettes in California has just about the same affect. I don’t want to go out on a limb here, but taking the Sprinkles off your 150lb. birthday cake won’t do much to lighten your “Carb Load”.
Let’s face it folks, with politicians more concerned with their re-elections than the future of America, with unions (supported by the MSM) more inclined to protect their control than consider the long term consequences, with voters being distracted by Charlie Sheen, Dancing with the Stars and delusional, prattling leaders espousing revisionist history, Dumbplumber has but one conclusion. WE ARE SO SCREWED. Dumbplumber
