A Great July Jobs Report!

The Administration announced what might be one of the best jobs reports in it’s almost 8-year history today.

It reported over 225,000 jobs created.

This is Super Great Awesome Amazing news!*

Let me ask you…

Why do we trust anything this Administration reports anymore?
It is true that I don’t trust anything ANY Administration reports, but at this point this one has demonstrated a complete disdain for the truth… and your intelligence.

Shall we take a stroll down memory lane?

It was Video.

I don’t have a private server, okay I do but it’s secure, okay it’s not but nothing secret was on it, okay there was but nothing important, okay there was some important stuff but I turned over everything to the state department for their review, okay I didn’t but AT THIS POINT WHAT DOES IT REALLY MATTER!?
Secretary Clinton was the Greatest Secretary if State this country has ever had.
If you like your Doctor, You can keep your doctor.
It will save every family $2500 a year.

There’s much more but my fingers are tapped out.

Oh… wait… and the above “*”.

*All numbers are subject to revision… and they are always revised down… when nobody is paying attention and the previous, erroneous, number has already been disseminated.

So, Why do we Trust?

Hurray for Mistrust!

According to a recent Study;

Young People Don’t Trust the Government!

Well it’s about D*mn Time..

Considering the Generations before them Trusted the Government and thus created the Rancid Pile of Poo Weasels along with the Statist Structure they Inhabit, I’m pleased to hear someone is coming to their senses.  I supposed the young folks might be taking a look at their inheritance and wondering what the rest of us were thinking.

This Government was not founded on the idea that all good things come from it.  In fact, this country was founded on the idea that limited Government is what would allow the individual to excel, and keeping the Government out-of-the-way, if not out-of-the-way at least close to home, was the key to a successful nation.

We are Never supposed to Trust Government.

We are supposed to recognize that the functions of Government are conducted by exactly the types of people the We Are.  Narcissistic, Egomaniacal, Self-Centered and Deeply Flawed.  The truth is Government actually ATTRACTS those types of people.  So what we try to deny to ourselves is Government over delivers when it comes to those you wish were not running things.  The Founders recognized, based on history, that the only way to address this problem was to Drastically Limit what it was The Government would be allowed to Run… by means of a Constitution.

The product of their deep mistrust of those elected to represent others was Checks and Balances.

So sure were the Founders that the biggest Thug in the Room would quickly take over through ‘legal’ means, they created a check on each of the three separate branches.

This was to Slow Things Down… if not stop things from happening altogether

Some of you Statists have intentionally changed the terminology to “Not Get Things Done…”, which if you mean not Race Forward to the Full Socialization of the United States then I’m good with that definition too.  The wisdom was that it is better the Government Do Nothing than Do Something Bad in terms of infringing on our Liberty.  I continue to Strongly Agree.

In the End,  we are NEVER to Trust Government.  Never, Never, Never!  We were Never, Never, Never, supposed to!

We are to hold all of those we elect to represent us with suspicion… particularly the ones we voted for.  American Exceptionalism Demands it.

We’re not exceptional because of what we do… we’re exceptional because of how we were founded and what that Protection of Freedom and Liberty of the Individual allows us to do.

That’s why we still have the longest waiting lines to come here legally.

However, we’re a mess, and…

Trust in Government is what landed us here.

It’s time for all of us to grow up and return to shouldering the responsibility our Founding Fathers expected us to carry.

If you want to Trust Government for some reason then Trust that They will do what benefits their power and wealth… Or at the very least suspect it.

Sound Cynical?  Well it is… look up the Cynics and understand what that means.  Cynicism is the Watchdog of Freedom.

It is our job to keep a close eye on these flawed humans, because no one else will and they have demonstrated for decades what they do when you aren’t looking.

May be the Children are our future after all.  Let’s hope they Nurture that Mistrust.

And, let’s hope the rest of us learn to recognize mistrust is… Good.
