Stuck on a Feeling…or, Living in Moucheville

I was watching the game last night and, when the power went out, I couldn’t help but think of the stories from the week before. We have a failing economy, the media no longer does its job, Obama gas will ruin your car… The list is long and growing. That’s when I thought of Ayn Rand’s novel, “Atlas Shrugged,” and couldn’t help but think of the parallels between the society in the novel from which the RNL takes its name and that in which we’re living.  Now, I realize there will be people who dismiss me, but I still can’t help the feeling that we’re living in Ayn Rands world.
But not to worry: the ‘experts’ will fix it all by blaming it on the rich and greedy and tripling down on the same old failed ideas they have pushed for the past few centuries. And the result will be the same as well.

Hey, here’s a sobering thought: take Moucheville, throw in a Dewey education system and you get “Idiocracy.”
Don’t the future look bright? :-)

  1. Maybe the city couldn’t afford the light bill.

    I have a girlfriend who is a freelance masseuse, and she knows absoluely nothing on politics. She did not believe me when I said that our bills have risen with one factor being Obamacare. I guess I could make my life simple and just ask her to look at one of her receipts……What I do not understand is the fact that my girlfriend is no idiot.

  2. The game last night showed a lot of the ills of America. First you have a murderer being celebrated as a champion and an elder statesman of the game. The halftime show was just missing a stripper pole to be complete, and a lot of the commercials highlighted bad activities as something to be proud of. I know I’m sounding like the old man down the street that keeps the kid’s baseballs that come in to his yard, but of course kids don’t play baseball now, unless they’re told to by NFL60.

  3. Fabulous example of Moocheville at it’s best.
    From an email:

    WHILE PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA TAKES THE STAGE AT HIS 2ND INAUGURATION HE TALKS ABOUT OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE EVERYONE GETS THEIR “FAIR SHARE” AND A “FAIR SHOT”….

    IN GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIZED HOUSING EVERYWHERE ACROSS AMERICA, PEOPLE ARE SITTING IN THEIR LIVING ROOMS WATCHING THE INAUGURATION ON THEIR BIG SCREEN T.V.’S AND CHEERING HIM ON….

    We felt like this was the perfect time to share this IMPORTANT story with you. Recently, our good friend Michael (a local realtor) shared his experience with Leisa and I about an “Obama supporter” he encountered while showing homes to a low income, working family in Pontiac, MI.. We asked him to please write it down so we could share it with you. YOU SHOULD BE SITTING DOWN WHILE READING THIS:

    As a Realtor for the past 28 years I thought I’d seen or heard it all. Until now.
    I was showing homes in Pontiac, MI. one afternoon recently and showed up at a home at the 4:00 pm time my appointment was scheduled for. After I woke up the homeowner, she let us in and then proceeded to tell my buyers and I that she has already entered into a contract to sell the home on a short-sale. (A short-sale is a sale where the banks accepts less money than is owed on the home). After some chit-chat, she proceeded to tell us that she and her sister (who also lived in the area) were buying each other’s homes via the short-sale process. I mentioned to her that I thought relatives could not be involved in those transactions. She smiled and said “We have two different last names so no one knows the difference”.
    She went on to tell us that each of them owed over 100K on their homes and were in the process of buying each other’s homes for about 10-15K cash. To top it off, they were each receiving $3,000.00 in government provided relocation assistance at the closing.

    My buyers and I were amazed that she was outright admitting to fraud and yet, she continued. She began to tell us that the best part of her scheme was that because they currently were not working that they (both) are now receiving Section 8 Vouchers. I said I thought those were for renters and she said “That’s the best part; me and my sister are going to be renting each other’s homes so we don’t even have to move, and Obama is going to give us each $800.00 a month to pay the rent!” She then picked up a picture she had framed of Obama and did a little happy dance around her living room and while she kissed the picture she was singing “Thank you Obama…. thank you Obama.”

    So here is the bottom line. Both of these scammers got at least $80,000.00 in debt forgiven, $3,000.00 in cash for relocation (when in fact they did not relocate) and to boot, you and I will now be paying (through our taxes) $1,600.00 in rent for each them each and every month…. perhaps forever!

    Is it any wonder why so many people have decided that all they have to do is VOTE for the Democrats and they will be taken care of for life at the expense of the taxpayers? I would not be at all surprised if they are receiving food stamps and whatever other programs are available for anyone who is willing to lie to get assistance.

    These women went from working and paying about $900.00 each in mortgage payments to staying home and getting paid $800.00 each per month to live in the same home they had been living in and all they had to do was lie on a few papers. This craziness has to stop! I’m sure this kind of fraud is going on each and every day all across the country and no one wants to touch the subject of entitlements because they might OFFEND someone or lose a vote or two.

    By the way… she had an almost new SUV in the driveway, three flat screen TV’s and a very nice computer set up in her living room which was furnished entirely with nice leather furniture.

    I’TS THE NEW ‘AMERICAN WAY’…..

    For all of the “do-gooder’s” who voted for Obama to help the “less fortunate”….CHEERS….. they are now the “most fortunate!” How’re things working out for you??
