- First, the idea of an elected official constantly looking for new projects to spend money on.
- Next, the idea of using federal money to pay for local projects.
- Finally, the idea of kicking the can down the road and not fixing our problems now.
The last two are directly related - the people in charge now (and the people that put them there) would rather their children solve the tough problems, probably even their grandchildren.
Because when you salivate over spending federal money that we don’t have for projects that we don’t really need, then what you’re really saying is that your children’s future doesn’t matter, that their children’s future doesn’t matter, either.
This is typical Baby Boomer thinking, the worst generation this country has ever seen. When they first reached voting age around 1965, we had $300 billion in federal debt. When they hit retirement age, we had over $20 trillion.
Sadly for the kids that aren’t even born yet, these folks aren’t done. They have another 10 or more years of ruining America left in them, and I suspect these years will be the worst. Remember, as you age it’s not your mind that goes first, but your judgement.
I’m sorry, but what’s wrong with the Orange Street underpass now? I stopped reading the drivel from Missoula’s current propaganda rag over a month ago, and have no intention of ever reading it again. When I see the same articles on KPAX, I skip them.
It doesn’t really matter if there’s a problem or not - it’s a potential project, and the people in government think that if they aren’t spending money they don’t have, they’ll be seen as doing nothing.
At this point, that’s exactly what we need people in government to do - nothing, nothing at all.
Let the private sector do it.
I have absolutely no faith in this town anymore and am looking for the exits. I think this fall, we’ll see the three conservatives on the city council lose ground, likely losing a seat (Ward 4). I think Engen will coast to a very, very easy victory over Elder. I don’t think anyone else is going to file.
This town is being run into the ground, at a much faster pace than it has been. Things really accelerated over the past year, egged-on by the huge influx of federal make-believe money, hot off the presses.
Successful communities try to figure out how to create new jobs, attract new industry, and elevate the quality of life for their hard working citizens.
Here in Missoula, we spend most of our time trying to figure out how to get alcoholics and drug addicts into housing we don’t have and at prices that don’t exist.
Creating new jobs, bettering pay, and alleviating the housing crunch isn’t important at all, aside from lip-service in the media. It’s important to have wage slaves that are always on the edge of subsistence and existence, eager to cater to the wealthy elite of this town. More and more are coming all the time, don’t ya know?
It’s a lot easier to offer someone a one-time bonus to come to work as opposed to a permanently higher wage.
Sadly, I think things will continue as they are.
My greatest hope, though, is that they unfold like this:
- 200,000+ illegal migrants continue to pour across the border each month, creating a monumental headache for Biden, and the possible ouster of Kamala Harris.
- More and more comes about about Herr Fauci, how he paid to have 3.7 million people killed worldwide, then tried to cover it up.
- We learn more about the 2020 election fraud as more states conduct their audits.
Under the overwhelming weight of the truth of those three stories, and the media’s inability to cover them up any longer, Biden will have to do the only thing he can do to take the pressure off, direct attention elsewhere - crash the economy.
The best time is this fall, when the harvests are coming in, when the stimulus checks finally end. That will fall just weeks before our local elections.
The housing market will crash along with the stock market, millions will lose their unimportant telecommuting jobs, millions more will lose important jobs, and millions will be unable to pay their mortgage, ending the housing crisis overnight, yet exacerbating the already terrible homeless situation.
The puppets in power got there by cheating, and they’ll do everything they can to stay in power, including ruining this country even more than they already are.
This is what I hope will happen, and I think it stands a very strong chance.
If it doesn’t, the wealth gap will only grow larger, and eventually the masses will band together to fight the wealthy, ditching the critical race theory and other silly ideas being manufactured to divide us. No one wants that, but it is coming.
