During Clinton's presidency, the United States actually had a budget surplus..that is right..SURPLUS...
Actually, Clinton brought SURPLUSES for FOUR STRAIGHT YEARS ... and PROJECTED Surpluses for DECADES in the Future. RepugnamtC*nts DESTROYED that.
That said ... "Surpluses" can be as DESTRUCTIVE as even the WORST of Deficits. Just as we ALL see in our own homes, small businesses, and other endeavors, intelligent INVESTING (while takinin' on RATIONAL Debt) INCREASES our Financial/Economic viability.
... a SIMPLE example is the small business owner ... say, a baker ... who sustains Storm Damage to his bakery. IF his "Cash on hand" is INSUFFICIENT to Rebuild his PROFFITABLE Bakery business ... what should he do?
The ANSWER is SIMPLE. He could go belly-up by MINDLESSLY refusing to BORROW money to re-build his business ... OR ... he could incur RATIONAL DEBT (repayable over time ... and with intere$t) in an effort to REBUILD his THRIVING business.
What's happenin' here?
Well ... FAILURE to Deficit Spend would ENSURE that that entrepreneur would become. EFFECTIVELY, Destitute. No source of Present, Mid-term. or LongTerm income.
... he'd EMPLOY NO ONE!
... he ... AND his former employees ... would contribute ZERO revenues to the INFRASTRUCTURE building AND MAINTENANCE that allowed him/her and them to THRIVE. The INFRASTRUCTURE that MADE ALL of their successes possible, would DETERIORATE.
Over time, we'd ALL be caught in that SAME, ever-widenin' , DESTRUCTIVE VORTEX ... DRAIN ...
Ignorant folk, like JimmyBobBoyHowdy, like to believe that they "made it" on their "own". NUTHIN' could be further from The TRUTH!!!
America was DISCOVERED ... and POPULATED ... and FUNDED AT EVERY LEVEL ... by DEFICIT SPENDING!!!
Make NO MISTAKE ... America was NOT Viable or Profitable at the outset. People RISKED (Deficit Spent) for DECADES before they saw a PROFIT on their INVESTMENTS!!!
When the smoke clears, there ain't NO Progress EXCEPT via RISK ... ie. Deficit Spending.
Mind you ... not ALL "risk" pays off ... even over the long-term. "Risk" IS "risky business". BUT ... MINDLESS FEAR (Conservatism) all but GAURANTEES FAILURE!!!
Mindless Conservatism ENSURES FAILURE! Mindless FEAR ensures FAILURE!!!
Timid folk ... like JimmyBobBoyHowdy ... did NOT Build America.
... uneducated, PARANOID, COWARDS like JimmyBob did NOT "Build America!!!"
People ... PARANOIDs ... like JimmyBobBoyHowdy ... HOLD US BACK!!!
Those people HOLD BACK America!
... they throw ROADBLOCKS in the path of WimminZ ... an' SpicZ ... an' BlackZ ... and HomoZ ...
THEY BLOCK ... at almost EVERY TURN ... even "the Threat" of PROGRESS that doesn't somehoe INCLUDE them. That's "human nature" ... BUT ... "Selfishness" AIN'T a "RIGHT!!!
Understand ... Freeloaders like JimmyBobBoyHowdy ARE ... FREELOADERS and they FEAR that their "Free-loadin'" gravy-train may end.
JimmyBobBoyHowdy DOES have stuff goin' for him ..
... despite failin' to graduate from even HighSkOOl ... he done okay.
LUCKILY, JimmyBobBoyHowdy was the BROTHER of an EDUCATED and SUCCESSFUL family member. That Family Member (brother) took pity on his uneducated, LUNATIC BROTHER ... and set him up with Un-EARNED Income (and un-EARNDED Societal "Stature").
Through his SUCCESSFUL Brother, JimmyBobBoyHowdy had contact/access to some of his SUCCESSFUL Brother's inner circle contacts.
JimmyBobBoyHowdy's successful Brother provided innocent "ACCESS" to his OWN Influential Contacts.
I DOUBT that JimmyBob's legitimately SUCCESSFUL brother EVER DREAMED that the ACCESS that he had provided to his SIMPLETON Brother would come to THIS!!!
Understand ... JimmyBobBoyHowdy's LEGITIMATELY SUCCESSFUl BROTHER was JimmyVBob's Welfare Source.
Brother GAVE his PARANOID, IGNORANT Brother UNDESERVED INCOME ... and even some Organizational AUTHORITY. Bro GAVE JimmyBobBoyHowdy SOLE OVERSIGHT over one of his CROWN JEWELS ...his HISTORICALLY SIGNIFICANT Meadowbrooke Golf Course.
... what did JimmyBobBoyHowdy do?
Well ... JimmyBob DROVE that HISTORICAL COURSE into the ditch!!!
Well ... JimmyBob's salary DWARFED the COMBINED SALARIES of ALL Meadowbrooke Employees (from greens-keepers, to restaurant staff. Outside of JimmyBob, the AVERAGE ... THE phukkin' AVERAGE SALARY of EVERYONE ELSE(19 employees) on his staff was LESS than $20,000 per year!!!
Understand ... that INCLUDEz the incomes of so-called "gourmet cooks", waite-staff, waitresses, busboys, VIP Lapdances, etc. PONDER THAT!!!
Is it any surprise that Meadowbrooke went BELLY-UP under JimmyBobBoyHowdy's OVERSIGHT?
Don't git me wrong ...
... I LIKE JimmyBob on some levels. He's got some SIGNIFICANT redeeemin' qualities. I don't think that he MEANS harm ... he's just IGNORANT. He's the PlayToy of the malipulators around him.
I GUESS that I'd liken JimmyBobBoyHowdy as SIMILAR to Joe LOUIS after his Prime ... when Joe was doin' the biddin' of ANYONE willin' to "Pay his bills".
Short and sweet? JimmyBob IZ an IMBECILE.
... he didn't graduate HighSkool ... EVEN in 1950 TEXAS!!! PONDER THAT!!!
He is an UN-American ... who HATES the SLOW EVOLUTION of AMERICA which has ACCEPTED the HUMAN RIGHTS of Women, Children Blacks, Hispanics, LGBTS, and even CHILDREN.
The guy IZ a RightWing LUNATIC ... with a SEMBLANCE of DUPLICITOUS "Soyjern Charm" !!!
Make NO MISTAKE ... JimmyBobBoyHowdy is JOINED at the HIP with people like Timothy McVei.
Feel free to support JimmyBobBoyHowdy as ya see fit.
