First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
It would be nice to start off fresh this new year with a new beginning as the new year baby is supposed to signify. As with most symbols reality has a way of creeping in. An article in our hometown “conservative” newspaper has me shaking my head mostly because it was written locally and as such had the opportunity to set some of the record straight and illustrate to the masses the flaws of big government. They failed.
Many times as I read an article I find a few sentences that capture the essence of the piece. In “Phrase-e-ology” I’ll post some thought followed by key phrases. As always I’ll have a link (in blue) to the original article.
I read this morning about the pending retirement of Camille “Bud” George from the Pennsylvania legislature at the ripe old age of 84 and after 19 House terms! So that is nearly forty years that Mr. George has been looking out for the “people” or at least that is how it is being characterized;

By all accounts there are trillions of dollars out there in which the federal government has no control over. Both Demoncrats and RINOs will salivate at the thought of having that much money to spend to ensure their re-election. They’re not likely to just take it, but will offer you the ability to convert your accounts to government guaranteed annuities. Think of Social Security again…many promises and IOUs and your beholding to the government for your daily bread. Any guess who you will vote for?
