But no politician wants to talk about real cuts that up big popular programs and after every most people the shopping mall -- see why.
No one there wanted to cut anything.
That's why the politicians are scared and few people in the media are willing to talk seriously about the need for big cuts.
Glenn Beck does -- hate that he -- out his chalkboard and does these weird professor Beck lectures.
Many of them about death -- he wrote this book called broke.
So he's talking about it.
They're all you get through that is is grief I suppose I had at least you're talking about him.
So I know you watch the state of the union -- What are we getting through -- they're not facing.
What he said in the state of the union was let me ask this -- -- like fish.
Yes feel like cookies yes great what he did is he said of -- -- go with this let's bake.
Fish and cookies together so here.
He took smile really the answer is -- you shop manager cookie.
-- that Ronald Reagan that's the founders the answer review the individual person.
And then you have the little progressive Woodrow Wilson Barack Obama FDR.
But government is really there and he'd make them close together who want.
Either of them you don't want cookies and you don't want fish when they're -- together and that's what he did.
He was telling us last night you -- the answer.
You're in the answer America but at the same time he then said we need another spot neck.
But it what is the sputnik moment the sputnik moment is the moment that everybody said you know what we got a problem.
He said we need is funny moment.
You just showed -- the debt.
Well what more moment do we need I was struck by when he talks about week.
This careless use of the word we we.
Is not the government.
It's we the people it's either we are individuals or the government takes our money and make -- stuff he's different he said a very important we.
During -- state of the union he said down.
We owe it to people we have to give them a better government.
Let me ask that who's we have not won.
We have to get a better of the better government it's the elite ruling that think that they can manage and control he was talking about.
Hobbling together these agencies not cutting these agencies.
Putting them together in super agencies now and merging them passing -- good good.
I'm struck by some of the things he said.
We're selling acres of federal office space that.
Hasn't been used in years where buying hundreds of thousands of acres of land in the west.
And why -- they have acres of federal office space that had not been used in years because it's the government what -- you saw the top of the show I went to this shopping mall.
In come I don't area.
I don't know how to make this I don't know how to John.
Well 47 now.
And I don't have any idea.
How people even my age don't know Social Security is over.
You're never going to get the money.
-- done it can't sustain itself but country can't sustain itself how do you make that point where people when they say when that lady said and you notice.
She was saying we need more money.
-- schools and what and her daughter say.
Her daughter said renewables.
What really brought India and that's what they're taught us more money -- we need more money for education because look how good the indoctrination is doing my daughter and of course we can't cut Social Security because I'm gonna get it.
She should've said if she wasn't being indoctrinated at school and she was learned simple match you to look at mom and said but -- that there's no way that -- it all asked to be.
-- -- Social Security if you're on Social Security right now we have to take care of our obligations and take care of people.
But it doesn't make any sense people are leaving longer.
Almost no one knows that -- on FDR.
Started Social Security measures most people were already dead by age 65 most people is an example -- marine was the average age for men it's.
61 for men.
Not sure and now -- eight for men and women is seven -- eight there's no way.
You what it was SS -- Social Security insurance.
Well that's not insurance that's a guaranteed payout.
That President Obama this week in his state of the union did at least acknowledge that this gimmick of freezing just discretionary non defense spending is not gonna do the trick.
We have to stop pretending that cutting this kind of spending alone.
We'll be enough.
That -- was encouraging at least he Sendak and given how hostile people -- to cut so it's hard to blame when things a -- -- -- not.
What what is he what is the progressive big spending giant government over regulating.
President going to cut.
While apparently nothing he wants I think bigger Bentley right -- seven that for the first.
Can you know Republicans are just.
And about it you know what 15% of the budget -- this was this was a a great speech he took.
He took the words of of Ronald Reagan which he read it over Christmas holiday.
And he he -- that hole I don't know I guess it's the people thing that make a difference here and he gave us the nice little cookie of that and then gave us the fish -- of big government.
It's a mess it's not going to work what the what he's telling us.
Is the book is probably the most radical speech -- president has made in my lifetime where -- saying I'm going to.
Regulate even more he said for your protection.
And -- Ramirez and his other regularly but keeps the food say only government keeps the only sick it bracket enough I wouldn't be different if it.
There are cooked together I mean if you don't live that.
But at least he bothers to write a op Ed in the Wall Street Journal saying we have too -- traded regulation I think you're being -- I think he's being sarcastic when he's done.
This is at least he's saying get you'll know that I.
I mean I.
Wanna see the bright side and every time a politician.
Since they didn't even used to talk about these things -- and it's like -- I've just.
How it would feel so much better -- -- -- -- stabbing me in the chest while telling me I'm not stabbing you in the chest I love you thought they.
If they're stabbing the country in the -- liquidity is dead and more regulation more debt it is not -- laughs it can't last so.
It's not up to them to do anything it's up to us to educate ourself -- say.
Social Security I -- I don't know anything about Social Security great educate yourself just.
Do the simple math it can't be done it if it doesn't work nobody wants to do that.
Well then that then were all going to be.
We're all going to be making the little umbrellas for the Chinese people's drinks so that's a little bit link the little little umbrellas while they have prosperity.
Were facing riots like they do.
In agree -- will Greece or facing vastly inflated currency like they did Weimar Germany where you walked around with.
-- -- barrels full of money and to buy a loaf of bread it doesn't.
If Americans don't wake up.
And say you know what this has been a sweet ride it's been good but everything I've been told by the labor unions -- -- politicians.
Is a lot.
Doesn't work now we can these be another page in history book or we be a whole chapter and say we were the first civilization that woke up.
And then sit up and said you know what no man can rule himself we've just been lost here lately.
We're gonna do it right.
