The United Brats Of America

America should be put in ‘Time Out’ for a few years. We are the most spoiled, ungrateful society in the history of the universe.  When we can’t get what we want, we whine, wail, snivel, grouse, and stamp our collective feet.  We want what we want and we don’t want to pay for it.  We have enabling-politicians who promise us everything without more taxes – and we believe them! Again and again.

Americans want affordable health care, Social Security, cheap loans, low-rate mortgages, better roads and bridges, inexpensive transportation, more funding for schools, farm subsidies, welfare, and a thousand other things with federal dollars.  PLUS we want the biggest, baddest war machine ever to save us from the enemy-du-jour and we spend more on it than the next 10-countries combined.

When clearer heads point out we can’t have everything on the never-pay-forever plan, we raise a cacophony of howling!  When a few actually shut down the government for delirious overspending, we’re ready to lynch them. SHUT UP – WE WANT EVERYTHING NOW!

America, if you can’t appreciate what you have, at least be thankful you don’t get what you deserve.

(Pass this on to someone who is at least as intelligent as you.)
