Here we continue the series ARE YOU PRO-ABORTION?. Part 1 answered a question, What Is An Economic Abortion? Here were consider a second question.
What Is A “Bipartisan Agreement”?
Check out how the rascals use the phrase “bipartisan agreement” => https://www.brainyquote.com/topics/bipartisan. They make the phrase sound like something holy and sacred. In practice, however, whenever someone calls himself “bipartisan”, we need only wonder which band of thieves this guy is with. Whenever Establishment Democrats and Republicans obtain “bipartisan agreement”, that almost always means that they have agreed upon some vampiric scheme to parasitize the US economy for the sake of some of their special interest donors.
We have grown too use to these vampires sucking on us. Even when their schemes involve borrowing huge amounts of money, we now struggle to become alarmed. So it is that even renowned Conservative, Rush Limbaugh, responded to a caller fatalistically.
RUSH: Scott, Jacksonville, Florida. Great to have you on the program, sir. What’s up.
CALLER: iPhone X mega dittos. Conservatives like myself, Rush, I mean, we voted for Republicans hoping to roll back all this government spending. And now I hear today that Congress, the Senate and the House, they’ve come to this agreement, everybody’s happy, and listen, I’m a Navy veteran. I’m glad for more military spending, but this is gonna add $300 billion to the deficit, so my question, Rush, is how do we as conservatives kind of justify this?
RUSH: You know, it’s a great question, and I was communicating with some friends before the program today on this, and I was telling them — I probably should not admit this, because it changes for me day to day. But I have to tell you, this whole budget thing, I think I’m immune to it now. I realized I’ve been caught up in this budget business for as long as I’ve been hosting this program, and I realized a couple things.
Spending never decreases. There’s one time in 30 years where the budget was balanced, in 1995, for one year, I think, yeah, ’95, ’96. Other than that, this is smoke and mirrors. The budget, we never spend less money than we spent the year before. We always spend more, no matter who we elect and no matter who’s in the White House and who runs Congress.
And then I got to realizing that I think one of the reasons so many Republicans are signing on to this is a silly reason, but in their world it makes sense. We’ve got, if this happens, a two-year budget deal, right? You know what that means? They don’t have to worry about being blamed for a government shutdown for two years! That alone is worth signing it, is it not? They’re probably gonna throw a party tonight because they’re not gonna be blamed for a government shutdown.
Every time we get an increase in military spending, there is no accompanying cutback anywhere else, despite the fact the news today: Food stamp enrollment drops by four million in one month. You think we’re gonna cut the food stamp program? Hell’s bells, no way. Whoever runs these budget departments doesn’t want less money than they had last year. We advertise for food stamp recipients when we begin to lose them. We gotta keep the budget.
I know I’m sounding kind of cynical here, but it’s not cynicism. It’s a realization that all the arguments, the budget fight every year is the best weapon the Democrats have to portray Republicans as racists, sexists, bigots, homophobes, of no compassion, who hate and want to starve kids. It never changes. Meanwhile, we’re told that the national debt’s gonna wipe us out, that the deficit’s gonna wipe us out. We’ve gotta get a handle on the deficit. It’s growing because the national debt is growing. (continued here)
So are Establishment Democrats and Republican trying to wreck the economy? No. These creatures of the dark — these soulless smiling beasts who compose their schemes in secret and bring forth their legislative bills suddenly in the night — these compassionate vampires understand that it is their best interests not to kill their hosts. Pity them. For in their hunger and their greed, they can miscalculate. They are only soulless, smiling vampires, creatures with deceiving toothy grins. Spending, not budgeting, is their forte. Eventually they will miscalculate, and our economy will crumple, and the poor beasts will loose their meal plan. We will have no blood left for them to drink. We will owe our next meal, the roofs over our heads, and the clothes on our backs to lenders. Those lenders will feed upon dead and putrefying flesh, the remains of a once great nation.
Meanwhile, we can watch our debt grow in real time. Impressive! Is it not?
What we cannot see is how that debt feeds — how those vampires are feeding — upon the future of our children and grandchildren.
