Airheads ? Beam, look in the mirror!

Yes, most Americans do want their entitlements and expect someone else will pay. Beam summed up the Dem’s platform pretty well in his column Aug.10 “Smarten up, America.” The stupidity in this is that no matter how much you tax rich Americans, all the new revenues still can’t support these social programs. From the IRS: 50 percent of Americans pay little or no income tax at all while the top 5 percent paid 60 percent of taxes. And from historian Alexander Fraser Tytler, “A democracy … can only exist until a majority of voters discover they can vote themselves largess our of the public treasury.” If only our airhead journalists would wise up.
