Ever hear some fucking dolt say “the government will pay for it” or “the government should pay for it”?
ZH posted an article about a guy that has been living in a $1.4 MILLION dollar home for 5 YEARS and has never made a mortgage payment. Not fucking 1 mortgage payment. Guess who with 99% certainty owns that mortgage? The Federal Reserve, which printed the money out of thin air for it. At one point a bank like JPM probably owned that mortage but since they don’t have to worry about taking a loss on it will go out and put their money where it will chase it’s best rate of return….maybe that’s stocks. But some other investor who owned those stocks is thinking…stocks are overvalued and I want a hard asset to protect myself against inflation so I’m going to buy oil. Well guess what assholes? The price of oil goes up.
This goes for welfare, foreign aide, and every other fucking thing “the government pays for”
People LOVE handing out money from the magical wealth machine, otherwise known as the government. However, when gas prices go up they get pissed. This is because people don’t realize that SHIT ISN’T FREE. There is always a cost and we are just starting to pay the price.
Look at liberal states like NY, CT and CA whom have the most generous public employee compensation and overall social welfare programs. Guess where gas prices are the highest in the country? Where do you think the gas taxes go? Take a look at this chart http://www.api.org/Oil-and-Natural-Gas-Overview/Industry-Economics/~/med… spans to property tax, state income tax, and everything else.
And ya know what really diddles my fuckin’ strings? These stupid celebrities raising all this awareness in places like Darfur when entire communities in Detroit are getting buldozed, and families and children are starving in our own back yard. And what do they want? The fucking government to get involved. I’m gona’ have a fuckin’ stroke if I continue so I’m done.
