Report for Deprogramming
Thanks to liberals, today we have public education, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, environmental protection laws, a minimum wage law. . .among many other wonderful programs. - Babs
Talk about proof of Hollywood's isolation from reality, here we have a prime example of why singers should sing, actors should act, and both groups should shut their bloody pie holes. Actually, upon closer examination, I agree with the above quote right up to the "among many other wonderful programs" part. It is thanks to liberals that we the taxpayer are being fleeced by Uncle Sam to pay for these atrocious programs. Let's run down the list shall we?
Our public education system ranks among the worst in the industrial world. It is ruled by the teachers union who is more concerned with advancing a socialist agenda than teaching our children.
Our Social Security system is on the brink of imploding. There is no reserve for the future, current payments are going out as soon as the come in, and it's only going to get worse.
Our environmental protection laws seem to have a primary purpose of strangling business, preventing economic growth, and ensuring our continued reliance on foreign oil. They do serve some good I will concede, but there needs to be some compromise.
And let's not forget minimum wage laws. My high school economics class told me that if you make something more expensive, the consumer won't be able to buy as much of it. In this case the product is labor. Translation? The higher the minimum wage law in relation to the cost of living, the higher the unemployment rate.
So to sum it up, uneducated kids, overpriced and collapsing socialist program, and a plethora of economy killing laws. Gee liberals, how can we ever thank you?
