When I Grow Up, I Want to Be a Crony

Posted: August 27, 2012 at 7:45 am   /   by

With crushing debt piling up on our children and grandchildren, becoming a “crony” is starting to look more attractive than becoming an over-taxed, over-regulated, college-loan-indebted doctor, engineer, or architect.  In less than 2 minutes, the Crony Chronicles video below makes that point in a clever way, as voiced by children.

Baby Boomers may remember the 1950’s-60’s Mickey Mouse Club Newsreels that began with the booming deep-voice announcement:

Crony Chronicles might do well to introduce this video with the announcement:

This video is dedicated to our kids, the future victims of 21st-Century Progressivism!
