The United States Passes from Tragedy to Farce

The Democrats think you're stupid enough to accept that hundreds of billions of dollars spent years from now on big government programs is an emergency economic stimulus. Krauthammer explains. The Congressional Budget Office says the pork will harm the economy, not help it. But your government doesn't let the facts get in the way because it thinks Americans are too ignorant of these facts and too stupid to process them. President Obama:

So then you get the argument, well, this is not a stimulus bill, this is a spending bill. What do you think a stimulus is? (Laughter and applause.) That's the whole point. No, seriously. (Laughter.) That's the point.

Either he's really that ignorant and stupid or he thinks you are. It doesn't matter which is the case. The American government is so broken, stupid, and corrupt, and the voter so ignorant and backward in his values, that at this point the American experiment is over. It has been over for several decades now. The generations after the Greatest Generation are stupid, ignorant, narcissistic, vain, and spoiled. There is no use mourning the death of America. It wasn't recent.

Sure, there are millions upon millions of liberty-loving patriots left. So, what? Their numbers are relatively few and diminishing.

No, the tragedy was decades ago, albeit it was a slow poison that gradually spread to the brain and heart. The poison was wealth, ignorance and leftism, a lethal cocktail. The corpse flops around, a zombie, a clown. We've passed to farce at this point. This bill, this Congress and Executive, are a farce. We'll vote them in again soon. We deserve them. Pity about the children, though.

Not to worry, we press on. We think in terms of centuries and preserving what is precious and fragile. These are things that the United States has forsaken but we have not.
