The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense

“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775

"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell

President "Irresponsible" Obama Proclaims April Month To Teach Young How To Budget

Here's the Nonsense:  It's excellent that our president sees the importance of fiscal responsibility being taught to our children.  

Here's the Horse Sense:  Talk about hypocritical!  The president proclaims April as a month to teach our young how to budget, yet he has shown nothing but irresponsibility in his handling the the nation's finances.

According to, President Obama has proclaimed April as the month to teach our young people how to budget their money.  This coming from the man whose administration has sent the nation further into debt than America's first 41 presidents combined.  This is either absolute ignorance or hypocrisy, and I don't believe he's ignorant.

This president takes great pride in his ability to handle our financial situation, but I'm reminded of an old Argentinian saying that says:  "Tell me what you are conceited about, and I'll tell you what you lack."  This is a man who it has been said over and over again by those near him that he thinks he's the smartest man in any room he enters.  His arrogance about his ability to handle our finances shows that he either lacks knowledge of how to fix the problems or he lacks the concern for America to do what is best for us.  As a trained progressive of Saul Alinsky's teachings it is apparent that his goal is to destroy our economy by overburdening it.  The desire is then to replace it with what seems to be a Fabian Socialist system that will reduce, if not eliminate, prosperity, private property ownership, personal freedoms, and free decisions by Americans, except for a limited elite few.

If Ben Franklin were alive today he would probably repeat his famous statement:  "E'er you remark another's sin, bid your own conscience look within."  But in this case he would have an audience in the president who doesn't recognize as sin his actions heading us to the financial destruction of our nation.  Rather, his background would tell us that he is more likely to be planning it.

It is a sad day that we have in leadership of our nation men who either plan to destroy what has made us the great nation we are or men who don't recognize the threat and do nothing about it.  It's time for Americans to replace these men and put into office ones who will do what's right to return America to it's greatness.  Failure to do so will mark the end of this once great society.
