Steyn Says It Best

Mark Steyn perfectly nails the destructive arrogance of the current administration in Ending Medicare, or ending America?, linked here. As usual, he can make you laugh through his vivid and acerbic depiction of bad news.

My favorite paragraph is below:
"America, 2011: A man gets driven in a motorcade to sneer at a man who has to drive himself to work. A guy who has never generated a dime of wealth, never had to make payroll, never worked at any job other than his own tireless self-promotion literally cannot comprehend that out there, beyond the far fringes of the motorcade outriders, are people who drive a long distance to jobs whose economic viability is greatly diminished when getting there costs twice as much as the buck-eighty-per-gallon it cost back at the dawn of the Hopeychangey Era."
Steyn is incredulous that we are passively witnessing our own demise through the incompetence of our current government. "The death of the greatest nation in the history of the planet," I heard him term our dire financial situation in one radio interview. If only our "leaders" would be as passionately concerned about our longterm fiscal health as Steyn, a Canadian schooled in Britain who chose the U.S.A. to settle for life and career. He is someone who understands the critical importance of our country to the world.

Sadly, that is a fact that seems beyond the grasp of too many of our current "leaders."
