Enough. The headline in a recent Advocate about President Barack Obama denouncing Republicans “for a constant attack on working Americans” and that he is using his executive power to force federal contractors to give paid sick leave to their workers is for the stupid. Federal contractors will simply up their bids to cover the cost of the sick leave and the “working Americans,” who are all taxpayers, will pay for it.

This ranks right up there with the statement the rich do not pay their “fair share.” Notice there is never any attempt to define the “fair share.” That is simply because the rich are being used as a political scapegoat.

Enough. I am tired of being asked to drink this political Kool-Aid from this bumper sticker (“change — hope”) president.
