Dear Leader Has Spoken

Did you get the chance to listen to Dear Leader today? What a great orator. He made everything so clear. He summed up his position so concisely. I now understand what we must do. And now, I’m going to try to relate that to you. You see, we’ve been looking at this all wrong. Maybe the best way to describe it to you is to give my original position first.

You see, I always thought that you had a certain amount of money and you adjusted your living style to fit that level of income. Or better yet, you toned it down just a notch so you could actually get ahead. Man, was I stupid. Now I clearly see the light. What a fool I have been. Now if you’re sitting there thinking that I may have been correct before, you really need to listen to this. Then, you too, will become a liberal.

First, you look at what you would like to do. Perhaps go on 61 vacations in two years. Or become the biggest philanthropist in the world. Then, and only then, I mean once you have a kind of crystal clear vision of all the things you want and would like to do this year, you determine how much money you will need to do it.

Now that we have a figure in mind we will take a look at the kind of cash we have on hand to do these things. OH! Bad deal, you say? Not so, and here’s why. Now we get out the plastic. Credit cards. We see how much we can get there. That should cover it. But if it doesn’t there are still no worries. We just get the credit card company on the phone and let them know that we will probably be going a bit over this year, but we are sure we can make those minimum payments. That should do it. Now we’re ready to party.

No. Really. This is how they think things work. Oh. There is one more little thing. As our minimum payments may be going up a bit we will need to generate a little more income so we might have to take up welfare fraud or check kiteing. I don’t believe that I’ve ever heard the communist position summed up so concisely. Oh yeah, there it is. You knew where I was going with this. But wait! It gets better.

In the gubmint version of this scenario we don’t even have to find the extra income. All income is produced by taking money from the peasants. This is the scary part of the whole thing. He actually believes that the gubmint is responsible for all the wealth. He doesn’t realize that money is just paper and ink until it is earned. When you just print money, even if it’s real, and buy back our securities from China, it devalues every other dollar out there because it hasn’t been earned. In other words, it wasn’t really needed. Now, when you force people to earn the money it just isn’t worth as much. Just like communist money. Isn’t that strange? Until next time, screw environmentalists.
