The Whited Sepulchre often brings us tables of a statistical nature, but unlike dry statistics, they are oft nourished with the cream of truth! To wit…
How freakin’ huge is your share of what Obama is spending? If you’re a smart person and not even bothering to work any more, your share of the government’s fifty-year spending spree is only around $50,000.00. If you’re one of the dwindling number of net taxpayers, your share is around $100,000.00.
Would you like to turn back the clock and make a few changes in this? (BTW, the debt is now close to 17 trillion. Remember the good old days shown here, when it was only 10 trillion?)
Let’s move on. would you like to earn a dollar and be able to keep the dollar for longer than a few minutes without it losing value?
The Federal Reserve was given the job of stabilizing the money supply way back in 1913. Here’s what has happened to the value of a dollar (as determined by the money supply) since 1971. The red line represents the inflation rate – AKA the increase money supply.
Want to invent a time machine, turn back the clock, and for the sake of everyone on a fixed income tell Tricky Dicky Nixon to leave us on the gold standard?
Let’s move on to Nixon’s dirty little War On Drugs, and what it’s done to the incarceration rate. (BTW, a white woman has a one in 111 chance of going to jail at some point in her life. But for a black dude, it’s a one in 3 chance.)
Want to turn back the clock and convince Nixon that his War On Drugs is a bad idea? Or is wanting to turn back the clock, under any circumstances, a sign that someone is a racist reactionary?
Has it worked?
Are we going to keep doing it?
Well, do Barack and the Democrats rely on Narc, Jailer, DEA, Homeland Security, Torturer, Prison Contractor and Police Force votes to get elected?
That’s why we’re going to keep doing this crap.
