Are We Enjoying The Scam Yet?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This post Are We Enjoying The Scam Yet? appeared first on Daily Reckoning.

As I watch from afar, I wonder how Americans can take it. Seriously, American taxpayer largesse pays for untold amounts of charity, though it’s coerced from them through tax. I don’t know who said it, but he was right: the profits of capitalism pay for the follies of socialism.

How do we measure such things?

It seems that deficits still don’t matter to most; in fact, too many people profit from them to force the government to be fiscally responsible.

Even if The Donald gets back behind the Resolute desk after the election, he certainly won’t make Congress behave with America’s money. He almost certainly will prove Milton Freeman correct. Freeman once wrote, “Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government program.”

As Obama’s programs became Trump’s, Trump’s programs became Biden’s (and then some). I suspect a Trump 47 presidency will return the favor.

This won’t stop until the American people force their government’s hand. And, quite frankly, the people aren’t angry enough yet. So, the goal of today’s piece is to get you angry. And then, I’d like you to pass this piece along to get your friends angry. And then they can pass it to their friends and so on.

You’ll sit there in astonishment as you read and ask yourself the same question I’ve been asking myself:

What’s the diameter of the American taxpayer’s cornhole?

How Dare You?

It’s a fair question, though not as bad as asking a woman how old she is. It’s harsh but fair. The way it should be. The last time someone got bent over this hard, Chevy Chase was singing Moon River.

And it’s the entire country’s tax base!

Take, for instance, this peach of a piece that’s no longer available on Ukrainska Pravda:

Luckily, a website called The Intel Drop got to the article before it was unceremoniously taken down. It reads:

The article continued:

Ah, it’s only $175 million of the $61 billion the House sent to Ukraine, $26 billion for Israel and $8 billion for Taiwan.

As Senator John Blutarsky might have said, “$95 billion down the drain.”

But let’s not even worry about the money going out of the country. What about the money staying in the country?

The List of Offenses

Redistribution. The Left loves it. The Big Government Right pretends not to. The Small Government Right and every American breadwinner hates it.

My good friend and ace copywriter at Paradigm, Mohan Garikiparithi, put together a list of all the perks the undocumented migrants get. You know, those people who illegally invade America through the unprotected southern border.

Mohan lives in Kanada, so he’s just an innocent bystander taking notes. In case you’re wondering, he entered Kanada by plane.

Let’s get into it.

New York City

The former Greatest City on Earth™ pays over $300 per night for budget hotel rooms to house migrants. According to Bloomberg, the cost of housing migrants is an estimated $4.3 billion between April 2022 and July 2024. Mayor Eric Adams says he must cut city services to afford it. On the bright side, Adams would like these migrants to become lifeguards.

“How do we have a large body of people that are in our city, our country, that are excellent swimmers and at the same time we need lifeguards — and the only obstacle is that we won’t give them the right to work to become a lifeguard. That just doesn’t make sense.”

Mayor or Village Idiot? You be the judge!


Governor Whitmer is offering homeowners $500 per month to host illegal immigrants so those new people can vote for her in the next election.


The state of Colorado is purchasing a gym for $4 million to house immigrants. Colorado is also giving stipends of up to $2,000 to host migrants. This is what happens when too many Left Coast skiers invade your polity.


Minnesota introduced guaranteed basic income for migrants in HF 2666 in March. It provides $500 monthly payments for 18 to 24 months to help support an undocumented immigrant’s basic needs. I’m sure the residents of Little Mogadishu are pleased as punch, as they won’t be paying for it.


Here’s a list of other crimes against common sense:

  • In 45 states, police don’t have the authority to ask for immigration status. This is utter lunacy.
  • Twenty states allow illegal immigrants to attend public college at regular in-state fees. (Normally, aliens pay 3x to 4x the in-state fees.)
  • Ten states allow illegal immigrants to get a driver’s license even though they don’t have a Social Security Number (SSN). Americans must show an SSN to get one.
  • Asylum seekers can get an SSN even if their papers aren’t processed after 6 months.
  • 4 million illegal migrants will get work permits and protection against deportation.

This isn’t some naive bit of compassion or pity. This is bribery, pure and simple. But the Democrats are bribing the invaders, not the natives, for their vote. And you wonder why Democrats are against voter ID?

Wrap Up

Of course, this is The State redistributing your money to some stranger who came into America without an invitation. You didn’t get asked, but you’re paying for it.

I hope the country comes to its senses. From Ukraine to Israel to Taiwan and back to America, citizens are parted from their Treasury. It’s your money. You must decide what to do with it.

If you keep leaving the allocation decisions to the government, you won’t have much treasure left.

As for your cornhole, keep it tight!

      Actually the billions of dollars our politicians borrow from the bankers to bribe the illegal invaders and the billions they borrow from the bankers to fund weapons purchase for the Ukraine and to aid in the genocide of the Palestinian people are not the “taxpayers money”. Americas politicians have now borrowed over forty five thousand billion dollars from the global bankers in the name of “taxpayers” who can’t pay even the interest on that debt much less pay the debt itself.

      This whole monetary system is a criminal scheme purposely by the international bankers in 1913 and designed to destroy our country by transforming its once free people into debt slaves who own noting. And that criminal scheme has been conducted with the help of Americas bribed politicians. So lets not fall for the BS line that the “money” actually exists as debt and the “taxpayer” is responsible for paying it off. We can’t possibly pay it off and neither can our posterity. The only way out of this mess is for the American people to wake up and flatly reject it.
