Liberal Logic: To Cut Spending You Have to Spend More

This government of ours is amazing. They don't produce anything, they don't create anything; by law they are allowed to take taxpayers' money, but yet they do not responsibly take care of it. I wish they would treat our money as if it meant something to them! It is very difficult to make it--it takes time, it takes effort, a whole lot of people sacrificed to get it, and yet they spend more of it than they take in. This is why Congress has a majority, because the Senate does not seem to get it.

How about Obama giving an EO, that government employees and Congressional members should get a raise, even while he is happy they are demonized and the focus is off his lies.

He already raised Congressional pay on New Year's Eve. I just couldn't believe it. The man is thuggish and other-worldly (belongs in Bedford-Sty). Praying that these politicians will ever see the light is all I can do, because nothing seems to be penetrating their thick skulls.

At the White House once I was regaling him with local news from Champaign (which he was always ready to hear), and I said, 'Blank is dead; his extremely disloyal sentiments so provoked his neighbors that there was serious talk of inflicting vengeance on him, and he was found dead in bed—caused largely by fright.' This man was an old Whig friend of Lincoln, but the reason of his exit from life's trials amused him. His comment was, 'He died, then, to save his life, it seems.'"- Lincoln's Own Stories, Anthony Gross, HARPER & BROTHERS PUBLISHERS NEW YORK AND LONDON, 1912
