Did you know that the economy is now in full recovery?
It’s true; welfare rolls have been cut by more than half. That must mean that more Americans are working. In fact, the number of Americans on welfare is less than half of what they were in 1996, and back in those good old days, before the internet and willing interns, the unemployment rate was only 5.5%. That’s full employment, folks.
Why would I say this? Because CNN.com told us so.
Yesterday, CNN.com trotted out old Uncle Bill—as in Clinton—to trumpet the fact that welfare payments in America are less than half they were back in Americus Clintonia.
Did they really try to push that ham-handed load of boloney on us? Really?
Pony is no thoroughbred
CNN.com even produced a chart to back up their claim, showing 20.4 million people on welfare in 1996, and only 9.6 million on welfare today.
If that sounds utterly unbelievable to you, I couldn’t agree more. You have to ask yourself, “What was the objective of CNN—and Bill Clinton—for trotting out such an ugly pony and calling it a thoroughbred?”
It’s no wonder that no one in America watches CNN anymore; you can’t even trust those idiots to tell you what day it is…
And they are idiots if they’re so stupid to think that we’re so stupid.
It turns out that in paragraph five, the truth comes out. The statistic is for cash welfare payments. The fact is, today most welfare payments are not in cash payments; they’re in the form of a debit card.
The fact is that in 2000, there were 17 million people—Americans and non-Americans—on welfare. Today that number has swelled to over 46 million. And, if we take the word “welfare” and apply its real meaning—government assistance, the number of Americans getting some sort of federal handout is about 100 million.
Think of that; 100 million Americans on welfare. 100 million people riding on the backs of working Americans. It’s a goddamn shame. This country was never about carrying slackers and cradle to grave nanny-state politics; it was about working. It was about building a country from scratch, not turning generations of Americans into dependent slobs sucking off the producers and swallowing spoon-fed propaganda from quasi-organs of the State.
And CNN.com wants us to believe that the welfare rolls are less than half of what they were when there was full employment in the country?
What were they thinking?
Let’s break it down…
If CNN.com is all about “Where America gets its the news,” then they have utterly failed to meet their own standard. As I said, they’re either stupid to think that we would believe such obvious drivel…
The end of meaningful debate
Or, they’re so arrogant that they don’t care whether we believe it or not; they know who they serve and they’re happy to carry the water of the Left. The latter is the sad reality, and is disheartening to me not because I’m a fan of CNN, but because it means that meaningful discussions on important things like the free-market economy and unbridling Americans from the welfare state are no longer intellectually in vogue. In fact, the intellectual traffic no longer flows to questions about foundational economic principals, but trend only to enforced outcomes…
Today, for CNN—and others--it’s all about the agenda. Yeah, I know--newsflash Gorrie--it’s been that way for a long time. I guess I just miss the pretense of objectivity, and the underlying assumption that though the American economic system was far from perfect, everyone understood that, but it was also understood that it was a damn sight better than anything the rest of the world had to offer.
Those assumptions are no longer part of the economic discussion on the Left. The paradigm is no longer how to strengthen our underlying capitalist economic system, but rather, how to unmake it as soon as possible…
How else to explain the president’s expressed desire to nationalize—er, “save” the rest of the manufacturing base just like he did with GM? Never mind that GM is losing money hand over fist to this very day…
How else to view this administration’s disdain for the values of middle America, and its campaign to get as many as possible on the welfare rolls?
The media on the Left constantly seeks to invalidate what America is, who founded it, and on what values.
Economists like Robert Reich and Paul Krugman consistently talk about how America should come up to the standards of the rest of the economies of the world, which for the most part, are economic cripples and political purgatories.
Those assumptions are, at their roots, the abandonment of American economic principles and, per this president, all apologies for our prior successes…
But the president can stop apologizing; with folks like CNN leading the way, we are about to join the rest of the world.
And those are…The Gorrie Details.
