Soc. 101, Psy. 101, Econ. 101

I shake my head in disbelief.
It's so elementary, yet the "intellectuals" among us ignore it, maybe because it IS so simple.
If you reward something you get more of it.
If you negatively reinforce something, you get less.
In this political environment, what are we rewarding?
Who/what are we punishing?
Bizarro world!
God help us.

Everything is backwards in liberal/Pelosi/Reid world.

On the other hand, Merry Christmas to you and yours!

It's THIS simple:

We are rewarding NEGATIVE behavior.

And disavowing the efforts and sweat and blood and tears of those who have TOWED THE LINE and done EVERYTHING they can to work and color between tghe lines.

Pretty soon:

When people realize that GOOD BEHAVIOR yields nothing -- then they TOO shall become bloodsuckers at the Gubmint Teat.

And on that day: we shall ALL be SO FUCKED.

You're right on.

If and when the current healthcare plan gets passed we will be rewarding even more non-deserving folks. Obama promises nothing for the illegal immigrants one day and promises to grant amnesty and citizenship to illegals the mext.

And for fun just think of YOUR taxed dollars building a new home UNDER the decades old levee in the slums of New Orleans for the poor chronic welfare family that refuses to move to higher ground and away from the local food stamp distributor.

Makes a grown man spit don't it.
