It might be 'food, water and ammo' time

Do you get the feeling that we, Americans, are screwed when this sophistry somehow passes as leadership?

Rangel says cutting government spending will hurt African-Americans

The ultra disturbing, but predictable excerpt (and easy-to-read, I might add):

"And so many African-Americans, for reasons that I do not have to go into, have sought public service as a way of life because of the security that's involved in it," Rangel said on the House floor. "And so, when we talk about cutting the budget and cutting the services that are provided, we're talking about a larger number of minorities that would be losing their jobs as a result of budget cutting."
So now we have another hollow argument against downsizing the unsustainable juggernaut that is the Fedrule Govmint: It would disproportionately hurt minorities.

Yeah, and the women and children argument against the overdue austerity can't be very far behind.

In my mind, Rangel dissed his own people. Because the dirty little secret is that government is, and probably always was a safe haven for the marginally employable.

Hey Junior, what do you want to be when you grow up?

I want to be a paper pusher for the U.S. Department of Paper Clips & Erasers.

Whatever.

On payday, start making with the survival supplies. Because with "leaders" such as these, the inevitable economic shock will come.

Later
