Era of Big Problems

With his lips Barack Obama says that the era of big government deficit spending needs to be over. But with his proposed $3.8 trillion budget he says, “Not yet.” With a deficit of $1.6 trillion just for this fiscal year, that’s a new obligation of $5,333 for every man, woman, and child in the United States-and that’s before interest, which will likely end up in the pockets of the Chinese.

But don’t worry, the president is focusing on what’s most important to the American people, such as ending “don’t ask, don’t tell” in the military. So not only is our financial house in ruins, so is our moral house. And I’m sure this sop to his gay base will help our all-volunteer armed forces in recruiting, so our security house will also be in trouble.

The era of Barack Obama can’t end soon enough. I’m not sure we can take much more.
