Those Pesky Democratic Socialists

In a recent FB post a writer blamed waste in Government spending  on “Democratic Socialists…..

Democratic Socialists? you say that like its a bad thing. BTW it’s good to know if you lose your job you will decline unemployment checks and when you’re old , you will respectfully decline your Social Security. You’re probably against money to pay local Police, Fire and EMT’s. You probably will work over 40 hours without overtime and would love a job in a sweatshop . Damn Those Bleeding Hearts , Damn Them. Anything that Big has waste, Anything. Yes it’s broken , but you were probably all in on 5 Billion Dollars a week spend on the Afghan War when 19 of the 911 Hijackers were Saudi Nationals as well as Osama Bi Laden , and a member of a prominent Saudi family. Before you say it , I am proud to be a Social Democrat , yes one of them again. In case you don’t have a dictionary in your bookcase…. Social democracy is a political, social and economic ideology that supports economic and social interventions to promote social justice within the framework of a capitalist economy, as well as a policy regime involving a commitment to representative democracy, measures for income redistribution, and regulation of the economy in the general interest and welfare state provisions. Social democracy thus aims to create the conditions for capitalism to lead to greater democratic, egalitarian and solidaristic outcomes; and is often associated with the set of socioeconomic policies that became prominent in Northern and Western Europe—particularly the Nordic model in the Nordic countries—during the latter half of the 20th century. And while i’m on a Rant, Congress sets the spending and they have Oversight power, A congress that was controlled by Republican six years of President Obama’s presidency . A Congress that told President Obama that he could NOT launch Airstrikes in Syria. I’ll bet you are a Trump supporter , he did it on his own, notifying the Russians but not his parties Congress. Here’s a question for you, Where does an American soldier eat dinner in Afghanistan , behind a rock. Where does a drone pilot eat dinner, At Applebee’s with their Family
