Why Our Elites Just Can't Get No Respect


Recommended Posts

American Thinker:

Since the very first tax-day Tea Parties popped up in April 2009, a raging sense of puffed-up indignation has possessed our ruling class. Emerging as the single truly bipartisan issue of our day, this how-dare-they-question-us obsession has grown from spurts of shocked angst among media talking heads to hands-on-the-hips Capitol Hill lectures to full-blown rhetorical assaults on populist candidates.
Just as all human beings from time immemorial have, our own ruling class of elites crave the one thing which must still be earned -- R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

Unfortunately, our elites just can't get no respect from the people. This irks them down to the marrow of their souls. From sunup to sundown, day after day, they squirm and fret and bellow for the respect they've lost among the governed.

Yet, respect lost is neither easily nor painlessly regained.

Alas, the higher one climbs upon his own high horse, the more ignominious his fall from grace, when his claims are revealed as unworkable-in-the-real-world flimflam

Our ruling class finds itself now in the crosshairs of public scrutiny and the hardworking public is purely disgusted by what it sees.

Policies long heralded as the cure for all that ails now have become the oozing boils on a diseased economy and every American middle-class family bears the pain.

The home-ownership-for-everyone push, backed by both parties for decades, has brought us a devastating bubble-burst, with worse housing-price declines than the Great Depression. Our government-run "education" system, operated by unions dedicated to feathering their own nests, under discipline constraints that ensure chaos, has produced whole generations of illiterate "graduates," who are unfit for any workplace. Government bureaucrats, in a shoddy, self-justifying system designed by our elites, choke our entrepreneurial engines of success with ever-growing ropes of regulation.

Social policies, ubiquitously heralded by our elites as "kind" and "humane," have reduced large swaths of our population to greedy, screaming, lawless welfare-state dependents, wholly unable to create a single thing of value to others. Real human beings, reduced in the minds of our elites to nothing more than "social experiments," now bear the pain of wrecked lives due to elite folderol of a magnitude which truly deserves the label "crimes against humanity." snip
