Irony alert!

The risible and hygienically challenged Michael Moore joined the fray in Wisconsin. Little shock there since Wisconsin is known for its cheese and sausage but while he was there he engaged in a little delusional ranting….

Repeatedly saying "America is not broke," Moore said "the country is awash in wealth and cash ... It has been transferred in the greatest heist in history from the workers and consumers to the banks and the portfolios of the uber-rich."

Uh, yeah. So Mr. Moore says we aren’t broke but rather the evil bankers and uber-rich (which I believe includes him) are hoarding it all. Apparently he doesn’t consider over a trillion and a half in deficit spending this year on top of our fourteen trillion dollars in debt to be a problem at all. In the magic world he lives in trees are made out of chocolate and trillion dollar deficits are not a big deal. He also said…

"Right now the Earth is shaking and the ground is shifting under the feet of those who are in charge," said Moore

If I were a mean person I might suggest that the Earth shaking has more to do with him being corpulent than with a seismic political change. If I were mean that is.

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reports that our interest payments are a hidden threat that is only going to grow…

Without a change, in 10 years the federal government's net interest bill rises to $928 billion annually.

Almost a trillion dollars a year just to pay for debt that we accumulated decades earlier. That is more than our entire defense budget and those funds are largely going overseas, taking a trillion dollars in American wealth and sending it to China and other foreign nations. If you don’t see that as crippling to our economy in the near future, you simply are flat out ignorant. We are already paying $200,000,000,000 just to service the national debt this year. Guess how we are going to pay that $200 billion? If you said: by borrowing even more money, you are correct!

The extreme Left, guys like Michael Moore and John Kerry among others, seem completely oblivious to the reality that our nation is in really bad shape. Not because we tax too little but because we spend way too much. We get a lot of rallies and protests and vulgar shouting from the Left but no real solutions other than “raise taxes”. There is no leadership, no courage, no common sense on the Left. That leaves it up to conservatives to fix the mess liberals have created. Again.
