“This Parrott Is Dead……

An essay from Skip March:

….it is deceased…it is no more” As you Monty Python fans know, two frequent themes of their skits were 1) the ineptitude of government agencies (e.g. Ministry of Silly Walks) and 2) the inanity of arguing for something so obviously false (e.g. Dead Parrott routine). A recent conversation with some business colleagues from Western Europe is further illustrative.

The dinner subject involved taxes and government social programs such as national healthcare and national pensions. Despite what we may read in the MSM and hear from the Democratic Party, these programs are quickly becoming a disaster in Europe. According to my colleagues, Europeans ( at least those who can find employment) don’t start taking home their own income until mid August with the previous 7-8 months wages going towards various taxes ( federal, VAT, etc.). At the same time socialized medical care is seriously deteriorating with top physicians leaving their practices because they cannot make a decent living and rapidly diminishing healthcare resources. Further discussion revealed an appreciation for “Reaganomics”, that is economic growth, not higher taxes will create greater tax revenues and that government social programs sap people’s opportunity, initiative and creates unemployment.

So next time someone argues the merits of government social programs, just have them watch some Monty Python sketches. The humor will soften the blow of reality and hopefully help liberal Dems to unload their anger….although I am not hopeful. Maybe I should just let dead parrots lie.
