The first was “Fuel Fight”, the page one main story. They go on to talk about biofuels and instability in the Middle East as reasons for high gas prices. Are you kidding me? When isn’t the Middle East unstable? Have you looked at their leaders recently? Or anytime for that matter. I’ve never seen a greater collection of unstable psychopaths. The bottom line is, gas prices are high because it isn’t an election year! Duh. Some genius predicted that the day after the election.
The next article was “Federal budget cuts creep into Iowa; Some Head Start classrooms and meat inspectors feel the pinch”. What??? You have an entire article talking about closing national parks, White House tours, air traffic control towers, special education teachers and meat inspectors- and you don’t mention entitlements??? Are you kidding me? Discretionary spending is so infinitesimally small compared to entitlements, its laughable to talk about balancing the budget on the backs of spec ed teachers and national parks. Completely absurd.
The third article was “Low-wage employees report a grim outlook; Survey: Those earning $35,000 or less have dismal hopes for personal finances, career advancement”, duh. Our leaders through a determined policy of taxation, regulation and disastrous trade agreements have for over 40 years sent good paying jobs overseas. Coupled with shortsighted and visionless/greedy corporations, and you have a recipe for our current disaster. The pizza maker in the article’s picture is worth a thousand words.
