Good morning America, Smutty is wrapping up his coverage of the 2012 election. Everyone is exhausted from trying to keep track of the ups and downs but mostly just thankful its over.
Now its time to get to work. Be serious, every kitten and pup knows that if you give one person more food or toys, they don’t turn around and start passing out the extras. That is the essence of the “trickle down” theory of economics. Republicans, let it go. We are struggling to cut a deficit and provide compassionate safety nets for lower-income humans.
Someone has to pay more, it should be those who can afford it. Digging in your heels and refusing to budge on tax increases for the rich equates to rewarding a toddler for throwing a tantrum. Every time he wants something, he will scream like Donald Trump, knowing you are a wuss who will give in. In the animal kingdom, Smutty just delivers a swift paw to the head and they straighten right up. Try it, it works.
Businesses large and small; shut up and attend to business. Paying for healthcare is part of being in business. If you can’t afford to treat your employees like humans instead of insects to be stomped on, get out of business and get a job. Oh, what’s that? There are no jobs? Cause your rich friends sent their money to the Cayman Islands and their jobs to China? Take a note from GM and Chrysler who got bailed out and started ramping up their production in the country that stood behind them when times were bad. Or, look to Ford whose top guy took a $1.00 per year salary until they turned things around.
In other words, suck it up, take responsibility for your own future and be willing to make sacrifices for your business, employees, community and country. If you cannot do this, get out. America has enough whiny, arrogant, entitled idiots and one less is a good thing.
Check out the constitution. It offers equal opportunity for all. This means that roadblocks to success like crime, poverty, poor education and lack of proper health care an nutrition have to be removed so EVERYONE can rise to their personal best. Kicking those without access and calling them lazy without leveling the playing field is like peeing in the water hole. Of no benefit to anyone and a possible killer of everyone.
So, humans (and dogs), Smutty offers you two paws of hope and friendship. No matter if your candidate won or lost, the work still remains.
Roll up your fur or sleeves and get to work.
Smutty needs a nap now, then back to our regular programming.
