When Porky Pig says "That's all folks" it is to let us know that a funny and enjoyable cartoon episode is coming to an end.
It is an extremely benign use of the word signaling that something good is now over.
When Barack Obama talks about the folks around the country it is to let us know that his attempt to destroy our economy and our nation is unendingly marching on.
It is a toxic use of that benign word signaling that something terrible will be ongoing until his reign, and the reign of the Democrats as majority party in the Senate, ends in the 2012 election.
Is President Obama really concerned about the American people, or with changing the culture and economy to resemble that of Europe?
The faux concern expressed by President Obama when invoking the word folks may have worked on some people once upon a time, but the bloom is off of the rose and that dog just won't hunt anymore for the majority of Americans.
The goal for this President and the Democrat Party is to raise taxes on the jobs creating people that they demonize, spend the new debt just authorized and to have another round of stimulus when the first two tries by this administration have failed miserably.
To quote Harry Reid, "We've had too much talk the last few days of Republicans as early as this morning, Republican leaders in the Senate saying there will be no revenue. That's not going to happen. Otherwise, the trigger is going to kick in. The only way we can arrive at a fair arrangement for the American people with this joint committee is to have equal sharing. It's going to be painful. Each party if they do the right thing, it's going to be painful for them because to be fair, we have to move forward. There has to be equal spending cuts, there has to be some revenue that matches that."
The passage of this debt ceiling increase is by no means the end of the fight but merely the beginning of another fight.
Beware of those uttering the phrase shared sacrifice as this is simply code for a European model!
The Debt Ceiling Rap!
