Do you see the irony here?

Why doesn’t the fed get it’s nose out of our business and take a look at the 10th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America?  The fed has far overstepped its bounds…bounds set by the founding fathers.

And if they insist on doing things that the Constitution says leave to the states, why don’t they at least tell us the truth about what they do?

As a for-instance, how about those inflation numbers?  The fed says we have no inflation, however Parade Magazine says a family earning $35,083 spends almost $12,000 on “food and drink” and “getting around.”  I presume “getting around” is transportation, which equates back to gas and oil.  So, the fed excludes food and energy from inflation figures.  Let’s see, they exclude over 1/3 of what America spends from inflation figures.  A lie…another big federal government lie.  What they do include is housing, a market they destroyed so housing costs are down…way down…which drives down the inflationary figures.

So by not including the rising costs and including the falling ones, we get an artificial number.  And since most of us are locked into our housing in one way or another, we don’t get much benefit from falling costs…not unless we choose to move, which is a major expense in itself.  So all we feel is the rising cost of food and energy, and the only way we can take advantage of falling costs is to incur a major expense.

Another interesting figure in Parade was the fact Oklahoman’s donated $1,587.00 to charity for every man, woman, and child in the state.  That amount came out of the head of households pocket and likely went directly to some charity…without being massaged by a half dozen government employees and agencies along the way.  Had that number gone through the federal government before reaching those services, I’d be surprised if 10% of it actually reached someone in need.  However, I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if all those government employees through whose hands government programs and your tax dollars pass, didn’t make far more than each of those Oklahomans who willingly gave.  We don’t need the fed in programs for those in need…they do it badly, no say the very least, and it should be left up to the states, counties, and cities.

The fact is, if you look at the number of states that are technically broke, the last thing they need is another layer of expense between them and a balanced budget, and that’s exactly what the federal government is…another layer of expense.

Ironic.
