You didn't think it would last forever - did you?

I've been trying to bitch less about President Money Bags. The minute I started complaining about him - I lost of lot of long time readers. I guess I immediately turned into a knuckle dragger. Even though socially I'm very liberal.

Still, every week when the jobs numbers come out. It affects me. It affects me when so many people are lining up for section 8 housing. And, it pretty much breaks my heart when the housing authority calls it a success when 30,000 people turn out for vouchers.

That should never be considered a success. Ever. It isn't like you are handing out movie tickets. There is a fine line between helping people, and ruining future generations.

And no - I am not being dramatic. People don't understand how hard it is for people to get off welfare. The children of those mothers have less opportunities and often wind up on welfare themselves. Many times they become teen mothers. Like my mom. And I'm not talking 18. I'm taking almost 15. Who then can't realize their full potential because they have kids to support.

Each and every week - I see us slipping closer and closer to people having to endure that scenario. So when I bitch about President Money Bags, it isn't because I'm racist. It's because I've lived the full affects of the liberal agenda. It takes a tremendous amount of willpower to reverse that course. And it just bums be out that we have a president that seems completely okay with this. I'm not going to lie.

You don't really think that explanation is going to help you with people who left b/c you criticized the president, do you? Remember, it's not facts but sentiments that count with the sort of people you're talking about, about yours are the wrong sentiments!

I guess I sort of wish it would. I mean, I don't care about a lot of things us knuckle draggers are suppose to care about. Religion. Gay marriage. Pot smoking. Don't care, don't care, don't care.

What I do care about is the equal opportunity for people to get jobs and run from the lives they were dealt. You should have control over your destiny. Not the government.

If it completely doesn't matter to them.. then I guess I lost nothing. I never really had anything to begin with.
