A Few Impossible Things

Two weeks ago in a post entitled "Mirror, Mirror," I raised the possiblitiy of believing impossible things. Today, we look at a few of the impossible things the Wonderful Wizards of Washington want us to believe.

1. We can spend our way to prosperity.

2. Universal health care will get costs under control.

3. Bureaucrats know what is best for hoi polloi.

4. Bureaucracy will enhance efficiency in any arena.

5. We can borrow our way out of debt.

6. Though "freedom of religion" as a principle was established early on, what was really meant was "freedom from religion."

7. The framers didn't really mean it when they said that areas not addressed in the Constitution were reserved to the states, or to the people.

8. The people and the government are separate entities, and the government knows what is best for the people.

STOP! STOP! Wait. This is not impossble to believe. We had better believe that the WWofW are making every effort to separate the people from the government, and that the WWofW will be the government.

See how many of these you can believe before breakfast. I'll give you until ten tomorrow morning.
Incidentally, have you noticed that even the wizards are beginning to doubt some of their own stuff? We don't hear about "global warming" anymore. Now it is "climate change." What's up with that? Well, you know, don't you?

It boggles the mind. The question is, do the believe what the say?

A fearsome question, Chuck. I fear that either a 'yes' or a 'no' is too scary to contemplate.

(On the one hand they are nuts, and on the other, liars.)
