Moonbats enjoy barking self-righteously about sustainability. Yet they seem to consider this sustainable:
In 11 different U.S. states, the number of government dependents exceeds the number of private sector workers. This list of states includes some of the biggest states in the country: California, New York, Illinois, Ohio, Maine, Kentucky, South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, New Mexico and Hawaii. It is interesting to note that seven of those states were won by Barack Obama on election night. In California, there are 139 “takers” for every 100 private sector workers. … If you can believe it, entitlements accounted for 62 percent of all federal spending in fiscal year 2012.
We are drowning in debt, and we are stealing more than a hundred million more dollars from future generations with each passing hour.
Entitlement spending is worse than waste. A dollar spent on green energy is more or less the same as a dollar used as fireplace kindling. But a dollar spent on welfare makes America $1 weaker by strengthening government dependency and the entitlement mentality at the expense of our most precious and nearly depleted national resource: character.
The only good thing about Obamunism is that nothing so morally and economically insane can possibly last. But the longer it drags on before the inevitable collapse, the harder we will hit the ground.
