WE PISS TRILLIONS AWAY OVERSEAS WHILE OUR INFRASTRUCTURE CRUMBLES
22nd September 2012
The http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/ with another fine list of things to depress you. Here is the missing piece. I hear various jackass pundits like Larry Summers declare that what this nation needs is a massive Keynesian Federal Infrastructure Program to repair our infrastructure and generate jobs. It’s a crock of shit. The Federal government, state governments, county governments, and municipal governments create budgets every fucking year and have been creating them for over 200 years. Expenditures for capital and infrastructure projects have been in these budgets every year. So why is our infrastructure crumbling?
It’s because these politicians and government bureaucrats have CHOSEN to spend YOUR money on gold plated public union contracts, beautiful new municipal buildings, bridges to nowhere, social welfare programs, food stamps, SSDI for depressed people, corporate tax breaks, solar energy subsidies, ethanol subsidies, and the biggest of them all – handing hundreds of billions to dictators we prop up throughout the world, three trillion dollars fighting wars in the Middle East, and spending $900 billion per year policing the world.
We spent billions blowing up Iraqi infrastructure, then spent billions more rebuilding Iraqi infrastructure that we had blown up, while our own infrastructure crumbles by the day.
Well it’s too fucking late people. The fucking money is gone. We can’t afford a massive Keynesian infrastructure program. The money is already committed to Social Security, Medicare, Obamacare, and the Military Industrial Complex. So Solly.
