The Chain


                                                      The Chain

If you were sitting back in your recliner, watching your favorite TV programs, you would probably get accustomed to 300 Lbs. of log chain shackled to your ankle. As long as the remote works, you’re probably in good shape. Eventually, you’ll need to get to the fridge or the rest room. Someone could get you another snack, but for some things, you’re on your own. I hope there is someone to run to the store for new batteries for the remote, when you need them.

When people displaced by Hurricane Katrina were about to be moved from hotels to mobile homes, the question arose, “Who will bring us our meals?” This is how dependency works. That is the heavy chain that can make willing slaves of everyone. Some people are stubborn enough to drag that chain around, everywhere they go. Some just sit and wait for a someday that never comes. Some don’t consider removing the chain because they are told that they have to wear it. This is life on the Federal Debt Plantation. We all know what happened to Cool Hand Luke. As the chain gets heavier and the inconveniences multiply, people will be waiting for meals that never come. There is no remote that will change channels on U. S. Treasury debt. The labor to move the chain will become all yours.
