Happy New Year.
For the first post of the new year we’ll celebrate The Sunday New York Times for an unconscious headline on their editorial page. The editorial is “As Good As it Gets?” and the subheading is “Americans deserve better than an economy that merely muddles along”.
My question is: why do we deserve a better economy? What exactly have we done to deserve a better economy? The article of course blames Republican intransigence for blocking more government spending. And by doing so have prevented “more government aid to help create jobs”. Setting aside the fact that governments don’t create jobs (except more government jobs), the NYT is stuck on Americans deserving something (from the government).
I was brought up with the idea that I was deserving of anything I earned. Where is the part that says “American deserve everything they earn”. And if we go on electing the same bad actors that tell Americans they “deserve” things, then we’ll get what we deserve.
Have a healthy and happy.
