Who Put Hannibal Lecter in Charge of Government Spending Cuts?
by Michael Cloud
*** begin quote ***
“What kind of heartless, sadistic animal are YOU?” demand Opponents of cutting government spending.
You remember Hannibal Lecter, don’t you? Perhaps you cringed while watching Anthony Hopkins portray him in “Silence of the Lambs.” Or perhaps you read Thomas Harris’ novels featuring him.
*** and ***
So why are opponents of government spending cuts letting Hannibal Lecter decide what to cut?
Why would opponents of government spending reductions appoint someone who takes delight in finding the most cruel ways to inflict pain?
But those are the wrong questions. Here are the right questions:
Why are opponents trying to convince Americans that any and every government spending reduction would inflict pain and injury?
Why are opponents of government spending cuts trying to scare us, guilt us, shame us, malign us, and intimidate us into shutting up?
How do they get away with this farce?
*** end quote ***
Yup, it’s a joke.
Any cut is a bad cut!
