Be careful what you wish for

Well, wonders never cease — for the first time in four years, the United States Senate has actually passed a budget. And given that the party of big enormous gigantic government controls the Senate, it’s pretty much what you’d expect. The Bard of Murdock comments:

We asked. We begged. We pestered.
We pleaded and cajoled.
We called upon the Senate
A budget to unfold.

We mocked their inattention.
We taunted Harry Reid.
We asked their party leader,
The One, to intercede.

For years they dodged their duty.
For years they let it ride.
For years on autopilot
They let their spending glide.

But now they have acceded.
They brought it to the floor.
And when the votes were tallied
The Democrats had more.

For further debt they clamored.
For higher taxes too.
For government expansion,
Upon an I.O.U.

And thus an object lesson
Provided for us all:
Take care in what you wish for,
And that for which you call.

    Saddening for sure. They follow the UN-Golden Rule: Do on to others before they ‘do on’ to you! Take what you can and steal the rest! Now that progressive Evolution at its best! Back to the slime they go!
