Michael Moore Is Still At It

Michael Moore flew to Wisconsin to stir up trouble, I mean support the PUBLIC sector union employees. Moore, who thinks we have plenty of money and that the money people have is a natural resource that belongs to everyone, said that this episode has awakened a sleeping giant. Moore put it this way:

Right now the Earth is shaking and the ground is shifting under the feet of those who are in charge…

…America is not broke … Wisconsin is not broke,” Moore said. “The only thing that’s broke is the moral compass of the rulers. Wisconsin State Journal

Given the stature of the rotund movie producer the shaking ground was probably a result of his walking on it.

Moore is among the group of people who see absolutely nothing wrong with public sector union employees bargaining with politicians for the money of the taxpayer while the taxpayer has no say in the matter. To make a bad thing worse, those unions then get paid dues (which ultimately come from the taxpayer) and spend them on Democrats.

All people who pay taxes have their money taken by force and then laundered through unions so it ends up in the pockets of Democrats. It is an incestuous relationship where the taxpayer foots the bill and has no say.

Why should public sector union employees be allowed to bargain for deals that are better than the ones the people who pay them have? Why is it that the federal employees do not have these same bargaining powers and seem to get along just fine? All the things that private sector union employees have fought for regarding safety and a fair pay work environment are already in place in the public sector. How many public sector employees are in a bad way because of terrible working conditions and long hours with no pay? How many work in unsafe environments (not including inherently unsafe jobs like say, being a soldier) and are at risk every day?

NONE

The taxpayers foot the bill so there is no way that they get a fair shake in the situation.

Public sector employees do not need unions and they do not need the protection that unions are supposed to provide (I think all of them have outlived their usefulness but certainly the public sector has).

Moore also states there is plenty of money. He and people like him claim we are not broke. We borrow about 40% of the money we spend and we have a deficit that exceeds 14 TRILLION dollars. That ladies and gentlemen, is BROKE.

This is unsustainable and it would only take one of our creditors to demand payment of our debt for us to be in a dire situation.

Our debt situation is the same as Social Security. Government collected money for SS from employees and then took the money and issued a Treasury Note for it. Then government spent the money so there is no money to pay back on the notes. If SS needs money the government has to borrow it to pay our obligations. If government had left the money alone there would be plenty to pay the recipients without borrowing. But since government could not keep its greedy little hands off that money we now have to borrow and we have to force people to pay more into SS or raise the retirement age to keep the scheme solvent. There is likely no way that those who make a fair amount of money and had the sense to save will ever draw that to which they are entitled.

SS and Medicare are a huge part of the budget and we cannot meet those obligations. We continue to borrow money to meet out obligations and the deficit continues to rise.

That is absolutely the definition of BROKE.

Despite what Moore and the uneducated among us claim, we do not have enough money to pay the bills. We take in less than we spend and unless we correct that we will continue to spiral out of control.

As for the money that is in the hands of the people, it belongs to them. It does not matter how wealthy they are or what they are doing with their money because it belongs to THEM.

Just ask Michael Moore. I am sure he can tell you that he is holding on to his money.

As for the moral compass being broke. The only moral compass that is broke is the one that leads people to believe that they are entitled to the fruits of another’s labor.

The compass that points to Moore’s kitchen however, seems to be working just fine…

Cave Canem!
Never surrender, never submit.

    Ah, but to understand this position, you need to see the world through the eyes of a liberal/Democrat/media/socialist/etc.:

    Imagine, if you will, a world in which no one will do anything you think is right unless you use force to make them do what you want. Working conditions? If the government and the public unions were not there, within a week these “poor” teachers would be required to work 80-hour weeks or face unemployment and blackballing so they’d never work in the state again. Without these unions working for them, these teachers would be in classrooms with 200 students in each room, no heating or air conditioning, and few working light bulbs. In fact, there’s be cockroach infestations and polio outbreaks within a month. But since government is there to spend hundreds of trillions of dollars, none of this will happen.

    Seriously, that’s how liberals view the world. Without them to “save” people, people will just be dumb and do things the liberals don’t like.
