Somebody Else's Money

Politics is always somebody else's problem unless you're the politician putting your hand in the public's pocket. That's business as usual everywhere in the world. The big joke is always that it's better to 'own a politician than to be one'.

However, in the US, in this upcoming presidential election, it's becoming critical to work to repair the machine. Clint Eastwood's speech (above) addressing President Obama as "the empty chair" was not the most eloquent, but his point was made clear. We can't keep borrowing money that we don't have and literally wasting it on a utopian socialist dream that has no place in reality.

And now people are celebrating "empty chair day" with vacant chairs and simulated teleprompters...

I hope the Tea Party gets a lot of new politicians this year. That would be a step in the right direction.

I think that Clint done good. So far, the only people I've seen who disliked his presentation are hate filled democrats; poor babies.

It would be interesting to see the outcome of the election. I remember everyone being so hopeful when Obama got elected... turned out that it was the "same shit, different day" scenario.

The Dem's are out there claiming a goal of reducing the debt by $4 Trillion, yet their written plan increases it by $6 Trillion - which would keep him on pace.

If we elect him again, it will be worse than an empty chair - he is going to charge us for looking at it.
