Taxing our way to prosperity.....

While strolling a beach in Cape May, one may come across this sign. It tells of a ship made of concrete. Yes.... concrete (I won't make any poor jokes about having a 'rocky trip'). The idea didn't pan out too well, and the usual thing happened as with any poorly designed ship. It sank.

I can't help but draw a parallel between concrete ships and taxing our way out of this depression congress has built for us. I suspect it will all arrive at the same end.

Back at State U, the Mechanical Engineering students would have an annual Concrete Canoe race. They'd design and build them, of course.

The problem is not at all the analogy, it's that the new ship design DumB-O and the Progs are outfitting for our future, which is as sure to sink as Atlantus, is the one we're on right now!

The short-sightedness of politricksters who would not see beyond keeping their synchy jobs has destroyed more nations than anything on Earth.
