A Fearful Master

Government
is not
reason,
it is not
eloquence,
it is
force.

Like fire,
it is a
dangerous
servant
and a
fearful
master.

--George Washington

The picture below is proof that government is a fearful master: instead of the icon of America being the wild horses running, the pioneer forging west, the cowboy riding herd, the old sepia photos of the poor but hard-working, pride-infused immigrant family earning their tract of land in the mid west...

we have this ... more and more often, this is the American way,
asking for a handout.



This is a man recently who saw the Presidential motorcade in Chicago, the President had just eaten at a restaurant there and this man made his presentation as the motorcade left.

Sad, sad sad representation of what a person can be reduced to when they learn to count on the government for their sustenance.

What would YOU rather see?

Oh. Dear. God.
And Obama is going to Mumbai and $pending 200 MILLION tax $lave dollar$ -A DAY!- to take along One Thou$and of hi$ clo$est friend$ and acquaintance$.
When someone asked him to justify all the money being spent he replied, "it could have been $300!"

Well said! I found this quote yesterday and think it makes a similar argument: “If you have been voting for politicians who promise to give you goodies at someone else's expense, then you have no right to complain when they take your money and give it to someone else, including themselves” -Thomas Sowell

Well said! And the comments above are right on the money, too. (Pardon the pun!!) Amazing that Obama can spend $200,000,000.00 PER DAY on an entertainment trip. Anyone else remember when Sam Donaldson carped for months during the 1980 recession that Nancy Reagan was insensitive to the middle class when she spent money to get matching China for White House state dinners?

Who said Obama isn't worried about stimulating the economy? This proves he is, only he's concerned with helping the economy in India, Indonesia and Spain, rather than the American economy! And after losing the midterms in a tsunami of common sense, he actually said he is out of touch because he doesn't get out of the White House often enough. Sickening!
