The devil made them do it

Posted on Updated on

Devil

Just go ahead and emblazon the term “the devil made me do it” on the seal of the Democratic National Committee.  Decadence, elimination of God, bowing to the environment as a god rather than the creator of the environment, and the general loathing for individual self-reliance are considered liberal traits by many.  There’s an obvious similarity in values between liberals and the devil.  Liberals seem to clearly believe that there should be a lack of moral consequences for the decisions we make in life and hence a lack of moral responsibility.  The fact that there are over one million abortions a year is horrific.  Throw in the fact that Planned Parenthood harvests body parts like their running an auto scrap yard is unconscionable.

The push by liberals to reduce individual self-reliance is significant.  Without independence, government is free to grow at will, inflicting liberal collectivism upon society rather than individuality.  Take home-school teaching as an example.  Many liberals fume over the notion that education can be provided by parents without government interference or control.  Another example is masculinity.  We’ve seen the liberals’ definition of a man; a dainty, doe-eyed, child-like representation of an adult complete with hair gel, skinny jeans and a fanny pack.  It’s not surprising that this is the picture that liberals want to paint.  Boldness, masculinity, independence and family values reek of individual power.

And finally, compassion.  Liberals have compassion but for some reason there’s more compassion for the criminals than for the victim.  We guess that since the anti-God ideals and planks in their political platform, help create the criminals, the next logical action is to make excuses for them.

All of this points to a real similarity between liberals and the devil.  Or at least makes the devil a big fan.

Rahm Emanuel dithers himself into a crisis

Rahm

It appears as though Rahm Emanuel has continued Chicago’s long tradition of corruption.  This boss waited a year before releasing the dash cam video and now the possibility of another video being deliberately disposed of.  This smells as bad as all of those turkey carcasses that have been sitting in garbage cans for several days.

Thanksgiving, a time for …. politics?

ThanksgivingOur fearless leader suggested we spend a little quality time this Thanksgiving mixing politics in with our turkey and fixin’s.  Nothing says love, togetherness, and holidays more than a heated discussion over gun control.  Isn’t he satisfied enough with tearing the country apart that he doesn’t need to have families fighting as well?

Obama attempt at calm?

Afraid

Obama isn’t exactly inspiring confidence.  Even listening to his rambling you’d think it was a middle schooler trying to convince classmates that he’s the right man for class presidency, complete with plenty of “ums and uhs” to fully sell his commitment.   Middle school students basically just wanted free stuff so maybe that’s his target audience, or democrats.  Although, we’re sure there’s an army of unicorns just around the corner that Obama’s preparing to unleash on the unsuspecting bad-guys-with-good-media-skills ISIS.

Looking forward to Social Security at about the time I’m bouncing great great grandkids on my knee.

social security

A few things worth considering related to Social Security, especially if you’re a few years away from retirement….

In 2015, $900 billion was spent on social security.

In 2005, $530 billion was spent on social security.

The work force has dropped 4.5% since 2000.

We’ve nearly doubled Social Security expenditures in 10 years and simultaneously seen a drop in the work force that funds it.  Key the dramatic Michael-Meyers-is-behind-the-bedroom-door music folks ’cause we’re looking at trouble.

In spite of our borrow and spend mentality – by Congress that is – it’s actually illegal for the country to borrow money to keep Social Security in the black.  Huh?  “Does not compute” you say.  “I thought that’s how we solved all of our problems.”  Sorry folks, time to be grown ups.

Whatever the answer, it’s quite likely that by the year 2030, Social Security will look very different than it does today.   The primary differences will be in who gets it and when eligibility kicks in.  So if you won’t be retiring for a few years, your financial planning should likely not include Social Security.  Oh and one more thing, along the way the government will be dipping into your pockets to start paying back the 10’s of trillions of dollars of debt.
