The Speech…. Hey, Look At That Chicken!

Share Button

After a while…. looking at a chicken would have been more interesting.

In a nut-shell:

“We’re going to have tax breaks for people while we raise taxes on people. Corporations are bad because they take advantage of tax incentives we have given them. We’re offering tax incentives for companies to create jobs. We’re going to do three times as much as we did before, with 4/10th less the money than the last stimulus!…. blah blah blah”

I didn’t hear all of the speech; I turned it off somewhere in the middle. In my defense, you can only get so far down the laundry list before you realize there just isn’t enough money at your disposal to do all the things you promise.

We needed bold.

We got nothing more than the same ideas that have gotten us into this mess in the first place.

This was nothing more than the usual State Of The Union, complete with the empty promises that won’t / can’t be done… Just offered up without the lie that “This Union Is Strong” offered up at the beginning.
