If You Were Wondering What The Liberals Would Want As The Next Right

Liberals love free stuff, the mere thought of free stuff sets them all aquiver. Health care, abortion, cell phones, food , housing, money, contraception all these items have become free and they have even expanded the concept of welfare and charity to make it a right. Not content with giving our money away hand over fist to an ever expanding segment of our population, it has now in their opinion become a basic human right to take our money to provide free stuff. By they I mean of course the liberal/progressive/democrat crowd. A simple fact of life is once you start to bribe someone the demands do not go away and those being bribed always want more. Well folks that is where we are today. Today nearly 50 % of those who file a tax return, meaning they have an income, pay no federal income taxes and 40 % of them receive a check from the government although they have paid nothing into the federal coffers. Today 49.1 % of ALL households in the U.S. receive a check from the government. That's nearly 1/2 the households in the U.S. that are on the government dole for one reason or another. Under obama welfare and food stamp use has exploded and the obama administration is now running adds to increase that use even further. So after obama care whats next for liberals, maybe this.

Obamaland: Atlantic Pushes for ‘National Vacation Policy’

3 Jul 2012 131 post a comment

For those wondering what came next after Obamacare, the answer is here: a national vacation policy. Yesterday, Derek Thompson of The Atlantic suggested that the United States was the “only advanced country without a national vacation policy”:

In Germany, workers are guaranteed a month. In the UK, they're guaranteed more than five weeks of paid vacation. In the U.S., unique in its class, there is no such guarantee. There's your American exceptionalism.

In the United States, as Thompson does acknowledge, 90% of workers get at least 12 days of paid vacation from their employers. But, says Thompson, “That still puts us at the bottom of the [Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development].” And, says Tompson, “Americans don’t even make use of the paid vacation they have … The United States’ long-hour culture permeates both our day-to-day family choices and our national laws, creating an up-and-down feedback loop of industriousness.”
