My Own Final Four Bracket For America’s Future Holy Moly!
Are you kidding? You’d think one who is representing the mighty Badgers, who made it to the Final Four based on sacrificial work ethic and discipline that obviously pays off in the end, he who represents the great state of Wisconsin that hosts this underdog celebrated college basketball team, would understand that future success depends on hard work and sacrifices. (Oh, more basketball references. That never gets old.) The latest Ryan (R, Wisconsin) Budget is not an April Fool’s joke. But it really IS a joke because it is STILL not seeing the problem; it STILL is not proposing reining in wasteful government overspending TODAY, instead of speculating years out that some future Congress and White House may possibly, hopefully, eh-who-knows, take responsibility for today’s budgetary selfishness and shortsightedness to do so. THIS is the definition of insanity. (Well she would know.) Do we still not understand how dangerous it is to allow government to grow unchecked as we shackle ourselves with massive debt – a good portion of which is held by foreign nations who don’t necessarily like us? If we can’t balance the budget today, what on earth makes us think it will happen at some future date? The solution is staring us in the face. (That could be the wig. I think I saw a face on it.) We need to rein in spending today, and don’t tell me there is nothing to cut when we know every omnibus bill is loaded with pork and kickbacks. (Well we could further cut military spending, get rid of tax subsidies for oil companies, and stop paying farmers not to grow crops. Oh she means making budget cuts that only hurt poor people who need government assistance. How silly of me.)
Reading the article linked below gave me the same reaction that my daughter just caused when she punked me with a very unfunny April Fool’s Day announcement. (Really which one said the rabbit died this time?) As my Dad would say after these April Fool’s announcements, “This would kill a lesser man.” This out-of-control debt is killing our economic future.

Apparently Paul Ryan has attracted Teabagger scorn by creating a pretend budget that only cuts social programs to the bone, ends government ownership of Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac, and repeals Obamacare, but does not suggest selling the first born children of Democrats currently serving in the Senate.
The budget gets 40% of its savings from the repeal of Obamacare which will never happen, and much if the rest from cuts to social programs that would never pass the Senate in its current form. So essentially it is a creative writing piece with no real connection to reality.
However the Teabaggers don't quite get that, and decide to attack it, apparently just for something to do:
Judson Phillips, founder of Tea Party Nation, told Breitbart News "Ryan's budget should be found in the book store in the fiction department. If there is one thing we know about Washington, increased spending now with the promises of spending cuts on the future means we will get the spending but never the cuts."
Ben Cunningham, founder of the Nashville Tea Party, told Breitbart News it is fitting that Ryan released his budget on April Fool's Day. "On this day when we celebrate fools, we are once again presented with a budget by Republicans and asked to believe it is something more than a political document," Cunningham said.
Mark Kevin Lloyd, a Virginia Tea Party activist, was equally dubious. "I got tired of watching Popeye reruns when I was a kid in the '60s," he told Breitbart News. "Wimpy was always asking for a hamburger today, and offering to pay next Tuesday. That is exactly what this budget does for us."
And since the Teabbaggers have their panties in a bunch that means that Palin has to get her granny panties all wrapped around her bony thighs as a show of solidarity. After all what is April first without the resident fool making an appearance?
In my opinion this is yet another indication that Palin is absolutely panic stricken that the Tea Party is leaving her behind, and she is trying to kiss blubbery middle age ass in order to get back into their good graces.
Excited to announce that @SarahPalinUSA is coming to #SWFL this week to join me on the campaign trail! #FL19 pic.twitter.com/OnqbPXRNL6So desperate is she in fact that she is ready to haul her skinny ass down to Florida in order to rub bony elbows with on of her endorsees.

Wow a Facebook post AND a personal appearance. Gee that will almost make up for the fact that Palin is unlikely to pony up any actual cash.
