Smiling Not Allowed in U.S. Under Obama

If you spend any amount of time listening to conservative talk radio of late, you’ll note the airwaves are ablaze with diatribes (rightly) decrying the rest of organized media for constantly spinning facts to insinuate economic success in a Democrat-controlled America. The news regularly buries double-speak under headlines purporting significant economic recovery in the United States, and the Limbaugh crowd is always Johnny-on-the-spot to call them out. ‘It’s the end of the world, dammit! Don’t you know that?’

Liberal spending policies may, in fact, not be doing anything to help the financial situations of the country and its denizenry, but there are other means of reconstruction that are overwhelming even the meddling politicians at the helm today. The free market is a powerful engine for growth, and it is when times are at the worst that the innovative spirit of America is at its best!

All around me, I see new business models emerging and successful transactions taking place every day. GM and American Airlines may be going to hell in a hand basket, but that doesn’t mean more agile, independent businesses aren’t finding opportunities to thrive where others’ imaginations have failed them.

We are better than the worst the Fed can do to us, and if the government doesn’t want to work for the winning team anymore, then so be it. We’ll leave them to their self-destructive devices and pick up the pieces when it finally keels-over.

In the meantime though, can we please face the Republican press for their constant bashing of what is obviously wrong with their opposition? It is the exact same tactic that THEY were complaining about the other side using against them about 24 months ago!

Instead of pointing out what’s wrong, Rush, tell us what your side is doing right.

(long, akward silence)

Yeah, that’s what I thought. Show me an honest politician, and then I’ll start investing in your gold. Ha! Maybe more on that next time, though…
