No… you pull the plank out of your eye!

So… if you don’t know the name Christine Lagarde you should.  She is head of the International Monetary Fund and frankly they are the slimy cousin of the Not-So-Federal Reserve.  This morning an article was posted on about how they feel that we should boost the economy and worry about cutting deficits later.  She was criticizing us just like our own Ben Bernanke criticized them!


That thinking couldn’t be any further from where we need to be.  For so long we as Americans have lived high on the hog. Buying what we want when we want on someone else’s money.  We have to stop sending and just pumping more printed money into the economy! Sure, there are pockets of Americans who are fiscally responsible, but for the most part America is doomed to repeat history and be dissolved and become smaller nations.  

Now… there is a solution. 

Albeit a really, really uncomfortable one. 

We have to end entitlements ASAP!

Here are two photos for you to look at, these are pages 108 and 110 from the 2012 – 2013 Federal Government budget; 

Notice anything significant?  You don’t have to be a math wiz to see that we continue to run a deficit through 2022… We can’t keep going like this! We don’t have the tax revenue to support our spending.
Even my 8 year old knows that if you have 3 quarters and something costs 4 quarters you can’t buy it. 
Why can’t those in power see it?   We have to tighten our budgets.  It is not the Governments job to save its people.

I know Thomas Jefferson said it best; “Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have. The course of history shows us that as a government grows, liberty decreases.”   
I’ve written about it before, and I’ll write about it again, we will have to have some very, very tough times in this nation if we want to actually have a nation to speak of come this time next year.

I can just hear you know...“But Jay, what will happen to the families that rely on those programs? You’re just being heartless! Isn’t it a Christians Duty to protect the widows and the Orphans?”  

Here is my response; Yes… we should be helping those less fortunate than us, but it was Christ who said this …. Not the Government!  We as the Church should absolutely be stepping up all around the world to help! 

We should be thinking as they did in Acts 2:42 and Acts 4:32….

We need to help each other, because when the money runs out, those who haven’t learned will suffer greatly… we can fix this!

Until next time!
