Why I blog as Amendment X
Ya know, there are times like this I don't even know where to begin.
I'm listening to Rush and he's on a roll about the fraud from Hurricane Katrina relief.
Not to mention 10,000 trailers stuck in the mud and absolutely unusable. $250,000 spent per household in relief (what would you be able to do if you had been given $250,000 in the last five months?). Even Snopes has an entry on the fraud!
And all the lefties will scream that this waste is the fault of GWB, Chertoff, mean and nasty Republicans. And they continue to believe that the government can be, should be or can be made to be efficient and effective. That big is only good when it comes to government. That their ideal model is the UN ( yah-read what Mark Steyn has to say about the UN and incredible corruption that you'll never hear about).
Again, the only reason that lefties will tell you that big government doesn't work are one or more of the following:
1. Not enough time has been given to socialism/communism (150 years just isn't quite there yet).
2.Not enough money has been spent ($7,000,000,000,000 on the War on Poverty Programs and we still have the same % of "poor people" . So, we lost the war).
3. The right people just haven't been in charge (the corollary to this is that the program just needs to be "fine tuned").
The truth is so clear, so obvious, so pronounced.
And so ignored.
