Michelle Obama and the $600 earrings

According to the Washington Times, at a meeting in Pontiac Michigan last week Michelle Obama was talking about the recent economic stimulus package.

You're getting $600 - what can you do with that? Not to be ungrateful or anything, but maybe it pays down a bill, but it doesn't pay down every bill every month," she said. "The short-term quick fix kinda stuff sounds good, and it may even feel good that first month when you get that check, and then you go out and you buy a pair of earrings."

There is a lot of talk about the Obamas being elitist and how most Americans don't buy themselves $600 earnings. While that is true, what is more disturbing about Mrs. Obama's comments is the notion that somehow the government is responsible for paying people's bills. Is she suggesting that the government start sending citizens $600 checks every month? Since when do the hard working people of America expect the government, ie our fellow citizens, to pay our bills? This is just more proof that the Obamas are socialist to the core.

Apparently she wants to send me enough money to pay down every bill every month.

Does this mean we get to start acting more irresponsibly if they get elected?

Sure! I'm going to quit my job, sign up for free health insurance and start cashing those government checks! Can't wait!
