I’ll buy 6 of Those…

…and a half dozen of the other.

Congrats tax payers of the United States, you now own mortgage companies and financial institutions, and with a little luck we might later own other businesses.  We the people are now in business, as are your children, as are your grandkids, and most likely their kids and maybe grandkids.

Instead of ranting over this abuse, (though a needed abuse), of Government spending of the public funds.  Though it is disputed in some areas, or even discounted altogether, but even if it did’t happen just as this story portrays, it is still a dang illustration of what the thinking of Congress should have never varied from.

Take 5 minutes to read this:  http://www.theadvocates.org/library/christian-crockett.html

Just to give you a taste this is an excerpt from the link:

“There is a woman in my neighborhood, the widow of as gallant a man as ever shouldered a musket. He fell in battle. She is as good in every respect as this lady, and is as poor. She is earning her daily bread by her daily labor, and if I were to introduce a bill to appropriate five or ten thousand dollars for her benefit, I should be laughed at, and my bill would not get five votes in this House. There are thousands of widows in the country just such as the one I have spoken of; but we never hear of any of these large debts to them. Sir, this is no debt. The Government did not owe it to the deceased when he was alive; it could not contract it after he died. I do not wish to be rude, but I must be plain. Every man in this House knows it is not a debt. We cannot, without the grossest corruption, appropriate this money as the payment of a debt. We have not the semblance of authority to appropriate it as a charity. Mr. Speaker, I have said we have the right to give as much money of our own as we please. I am the poorest man on this floor. I cannot vote for this bill, but I will give one week’s pay to the object, and if every member of Congress will do the same, it will amount to more than the bill asks.”

The best part of the story, if you read it all the way through is how he came to understand this position.

As cold as it may sound, there was never an intent for public funds to be given to private individuals, for ANY reason.  Only the excess of revenue after WW II allowed for such “charity”.  And only a progressive/socialist would believe it a worthwhile endeavor of the Federal Government.

Charity begins in the home and is only charity when done so of your free will.  It is wealth redistribution or more correctly theft when forced upon you.  If a credit card company treated you the way the Federal Government does, (ie, the IRS) they be under investigation and most likely heading off to jail.

Think about this the next time you hear someone whine about how the Federal Government failed to help in New Orleans.
