Overheard at the Counter: Uncomfortable Truths

Things Americans refuse to hear:

This year, there is a raging idealogical debate on how to make our country solvent: whether we should cut benefits or raise taxes. There are three words that would give us enough money for decades to come . . . STOP - THE - WAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you want to get out of debt, cut up your credit cards.

People who don't want other people to have access to birth control are mean. Plain mean.

Whenever a politician uses the words, "The American People" - substitute "Big Corporations" or even "Special Interests." The "American People" do not factor into any political equation - ever.

If the "American people" want to change government, then voting in every single election - including local elections, MUST have at least 75% turnout. Every single election. Then will the people have a shot at being truly represented.

The fault is not the goverment. It is ours.

Why are you so surprised that a tabloid did something horrible? Isn't that what you pay them for?

ANY TIME that a politician uses the word "entitlement," they are subtly leading you to see that your 89 year old grandmother who can barely walk and barely see, who sits in front of the tv all day long not understand half the shows that come on, who lives on a social security check that barely covers her 17 different daily medications for high blood pressure, diabetes, and Parkinson's, (among others) - that this lady is somehow the cause for the trillion dollar deficit of the ENTIRE COUNTRY. - oh yeah, they're also likening your grandmother to that 400-lb crack whore with 8 babies that she pumped out just so she can collect a welfare check.

Needless to say, this last kind of double-speak is somehow the most heinous of all.
