Okay, so I know you are asking the question, “what is Michele talking about now”? Well first of all, I’m not a high maintenance kind of gal (to be quite honest). Sure, I like for my hair to look good and all but I don’t fuss about it if it decides to be lazy. I spend about 30 minutes total getting dressed in the morning. That includes shower, make-up, hair and putting my clothes on. Outside of that time frame seems like a waste of time for me. I don’t wear blush or a lot of makeup in general, maybe more than some and less than others I guess. I also don’t bother so much with accessories like earrings because you can’t see my ears for my hair, so I figure why bother. I’m not one for wearing my hair up either…nope not into all that fuss. I like a simple, classic and no-nonsense approach to getting ready in the morning. I feel my day is already full of other stressors so why add to it?
I view the government the same way. Sure, from time to time I get the urge to paint my toe nails, but I’m not one to go sit in a nail salon and have someone do it for me. I’m more of the “do it yourself” kinda gal. Unlike our government that has decided not only do they want their toe nails painted on a daily basis, but they want to have hair, makeup, tanning and a personal shopper to go along with it! Kind of like the “Rodeo Drive” mentality we see from Hollywood elites, only the Government spends OUR money!
Quite frankly I am getting tired of having such a high maintenance government. I feel for you men (and women in some cases) who have partners/spouses who are high maintenance. How exhausting it must be to not only pay for that habit, but to keep up with the “wants” as well! Like a high maintenance woman/man our Government decides almost daily what new pet project they want us taxpayers to fit the bill for. Just like people who are on the Government dime for so long, they just decide “well if the taxpayers are willing to pay me to do nothing all day, then why bother getting a job”?
Now we see Democrats using this strategy in the talking points, only they mask it with “the Republicans want to kill poor people” mantra. You know Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a prime example of the Democratic mantra of divisive crap throwing. Every day she finds a camera and someone willing to give her face national attention and she goes with this “Republicans want to take us back to Jim Crow days” or “Republican policies will hurt the poor and elderly” and the sad part of it is, there are people who actually believe in what she says! It is quite discerning to realize people who are voters would rather use snippets from talking points as the gospel instead of doing their own homework and find out what our Government is up to. On both sides of the aisle, whether Democrat or Republican, politicians are more interested in getting re-elected and keeping that Cadillac health insurance and high salary than they are to do the job they were hired by the people to do.
As Americans, we are watching our great country fall to the “high maintenance” attitude. We really are facing a dire crisis and yet there are people willing to lie to your face on camera and tell you “we don’t have a spending problem”. Well guess what folks, if you are under the age of 50 we have a problem that we will face when we look to retire and that is “no retirement” and “no social security benefits”. What I have been paying into the system since I was 15 is paying for someone else to live on Social Security benefits right now! When I hit 65 or 67, I will have no benefits despite paying for it all these years. Ain’t that a kick in the head!
Democrats want to demonize Paul Ryan for coming out with his budget, but what have the Democrats done for the past 3+ years for a budget to cut the debt? Absolutely nothing…just spend over a trillion each year. Why should the Democrats or Republicans worry about it? After all they will have their retirement and the benefits of having the “edge” when it came to what to invest in all these years! Many of our elected officials are millionaires thanks to us fine voters! The Government version of a great Ponzi scheme right before our eyes but how much do you want to wager that anyone in office will see jail time like Bernie Madoff? Nope, we will just keep on watching our American Idol and the Bachelor while wondering who will JLo marry next? After all, that is what the majority of the younger generation is concerned about. It’s not like they are learning about economics and our history of Government in schools by anything more than liberal scholars whose mentality is the same as our elected officials.
Yep, just like painting your toe nails to feel “special” our Government is systematically getting all the salon services every day with our money and laughing at us tax payers because they know we won’t do anything about it! Of course unless you decide to get involved and actually do something to change it? Just remember if you do, you will be considered a radical, extremist, racist and any other adjective the progressives want to throw at you…but personally I’ve been called much worse and I really don’t care! Who wants to join me as a radical, racist and extremist?
