wednesday's gregalogue: PEOPLE ARE BAD

So two eighty year old sisters are suing each other over a half million in powerball prize money. They haven't talked to each other in years, all because one sis claims they had a contract that says they would split their winnings every time they gambled.

And this reminds me of something very important: people are bad.

Seriously: people are bad. To the bone, to quote Mr. Thorogood. I mean, when two sisters who've known each other for nearly a century are rejecting their own blood over bucks - you're seeing humanity. Or more specifically: what happens to humanity when you think you have something - and then it's taken away.

I want you to think about that when you consider the health care reform bill, which will create new agencies, new bureaucracies, new taxes, new costs. Meaning new opportunities for entitlement desire, and entitlement rage. The thing that grows cannot ungrow. It's here to stay, and it will only get bigger. And our government wouldn't have it any other way.

I also want to remind you of medicare and Medicaid fraud, charity and nonprofit schemes, and the countless other tax, home and small business loan scams all able to operate, simply because the government assumes people are good. That's right - no one would ever create a fake charity for Katrina, or pocket cash meant for orphans - because we aren't like that.

Ha Ha.

We, the people, are.

Worse, when you give people something for nothing, replacing self-reliance with "where's my free cheese," they'll want more, and nothing less. And just like water, human graft will find a way into every crevice and corner of your life, until you realize the only person you won't be paying for is you.

Because you'll be broke.

And if you disagree with me, you're a racist homophobe who hasn't bought Andrew WK's new CD.
