Look who's talking?

Bob on Twitter!
Or just
Ask Bob a question already.

A few weeks ago I wrote about national economics, but I don’t know if I explained the whole works effectively. I don’t know much about calculus, but I do know that if I bring in $2 and spend $3, I’m in the hole.

One group of politicians say if they bring in (that would be taxes) $2.25 and spend $3, and that should do it.

The other side says we should bring in $1.75 and spend $2.95 and that would be better. Can’t tax wealthy folks ‘cause all that money trickles down, because everyone knows if one thing flows downhill its money.

I guess politicians have been sayin’ that since 1980, but I don’t think it has ever happened yet.

Turns out Obama put together some sort of think tank of financial wizards to figure out how to get out of debt. To my surprise they said we should avoid spending more than we bring in.

Politicians will never agree to this because the American public isn’t smart enough to understand basic math. We can comprehend voice inflection, but nobody comprehends the words, like a dog.

It’s one thing to do nothing and watch us slowly die, but some politicians actually bet against the United States economy to get re-elected. Not a good thing to do, but it seemed to work pretty good.

Here’s what they did, once the healthcare debate was lost, they jumped up and started up about the deficit like it was TOTALLY BRAND NEW! They’ve been ignoring these jack-ball deficits for the past seven years and now its number one priority.

I’m glad politicians are looking at the economy seriously. However, creating uncertainty and fear, then forecasting economic doom and gloom due to the deficit; does nothing but creates instability in the minds of the population and businesses. This mind-set in itself is sabotage, intended to prevent the economy from recovering.

As a result of this sabotage, politicians could use this uncertainty and lack of growth as a reason to elect them.

In two years international relations will replace concerns about the deficit, while deficit concerns are swept under the rug. It’s all based on the idea that American’s memories don’t last more than one year.

COMING NEXT: Gee, I forgot what I was going to write about!
