Shutdown the Government? A Truly Wonderful Idea! By Chris Knight
At the moment the US government is supposed “shut down,” as the Dumbocrats use their fiscal voting powers to create more problems for Donald Trump:
Fortunately, on this one, at least, Trump seems to be holding his ground, and working on an alternative strategy to get the money bills passed:
Still, one cannot but be amazed at how much better things are with less government, and less pecuniary parasites festering on the body social. If only it could go further rather than be “resolved.” The end result of the world the liberal elites want is seen in the example of California, the White minority state which is now the most impoverished in America:
Liberal California is the poverty capital of America:
“Guess which state has the highest poverty rate in the country? Not Mississippi, New Mexico, or West Virginia, but California, where nearly one out of five residents is poor. That’s according to the Census Bureau’s Supplemental Poverty Measure, which factors in the cost of housing, food, utilities and clothing, and which includes noncash government assistance as a form of income. Given robust job growth and the prosperity generated by several industries, it’s worth asking why California has fallen behind, especially when the state’s per-capita GDP increased approximately twice as much as the U.S. average over the five years ending in 2016 (12.5%, compared with 6.27%).
It’s not as though California policymakers have neglected to wage war on poverty. Sacramento and local governments have spent massive amounts in the cause. Several state and municipal benefit programs overlap with one another; in some cases, individuals with incomes 200% above the poverty line receive benefits. California state and local governments spent nearly $958 billion from 1992 through 2015 on public welfare programs, including cash-assistance payments, vendor payments and “other public welfare,” according to the Census Bureau. California, with 12% of the American population, is home today to about one in three of the nation’s welfare recipients.”
The Democrats, drunk on socialism and the same crazy politically correct fantasies that grip Australia, only in a more concentrated form, have destroyed California, and now they hope to spread their misery across the United States. Their political relatives in Australia intend to work us over, but we are getting plenty of sleep, eating our spinach, and are ready to go for them.
A blast from the past to enjoy when you take a break:
