"Spread the Pain--Enjoy the Gain": Tales From Normal, Mn.: FICTION
It is the Holiday season---and the bass fishermen in Normal, Mn. have just texted me the next strategy of conservatives during this season of joy and peace...it is a little unusual...but they feel that over the long run, say a few decades, it will bring peace and joy to their political persuasion.... The strategy is "Spread the Pain": In the short term, and for many of you this is the rest of your lives..it means that you will not have any health care, or any income benefits to speak of...it will be the real pain...but in the long run...as in decades from now, others will be pleased that their forefathers died with better balance sheets, and leaving less debt for them to cover.. Yes it would have been nice if those wonderful Greatest Generation folks had had this theory earlier, but now that they have passed on their war debts to the Baby Boomers, it is the perfect time to renounce the commitments that previously had been made to the boomers...it adds a new meaning to the word "boom." Remember to spread the Pain...it is the holiday season.
