Diming us to death
During the State of the Union address, as well as many other speeches he's given over the past four years, this President emphatically continues to state that his programs - his investments in America - "should not add one single dime to the deficit".
Through tears, I watched the SOTU speech and when I heard this statement repeated once again, I was reminded of the scene in the movie Blazing Saddles during which, a posse was riding out after their man. Coming upon a makeshift toll bridge, the posse stops. The sheriff then yells out for "someone to go back to town and get a $#!+ load of dimes.
That, in a nutshell, is America today. This country, and all of its spending issues, is merely a posse looking for a whole lot of dimes to get across Obama's toll bridge!
