Social Programs, Lifeguard Training, and The Nation’s Debt

Posted on: August 8, 2012

During a conversation with an asscociate she made the statement that social programs were good in that they help people that are in need keep their heads above water. You cannot really refute such a statement because it is obvious, kind of like “The sky is blue.” Of course the sky is blue, today perhaps.

The problem is that now substantially more people are receiving some form of government check in order to keep their heads above water than are paying into the system. With regard to the nation’s debt, the first thing they tell you in a class on lifeguard training is that the victim will try to pull you under with them in order to stay on top of the water and that they will clamp onto you in desperation like a vise.
