Requiescat in Pace U.S.A.

This whole Health Reform Bill process, is so surreal it should be a bad parody movie (think "Epic movie", "Scary Movie" etc...) I don't even know where to start addressing the ludicrous claims. How about the CBO stating the bill is budget neutral? ENNHHH. You can't include 2010 because it already started, so start with 2011 and the number goes from 940 billion to 1.2 trillion. Further, you can't pay into a program for 10 years, receive 6 yrs of benefits, and then start the next 10 years 40% in the hole, and expect it to be in the black. Basic economics my liberal friends. I'm also really psyched about the 10 billion set aside to hire 16,000 new IRS agents to police and levy fines on those not wanting to take part. That's all-American. But then, maybe that's wy Dem. Steny Hoyer instructed his members in Congress not to talk about the particulars of the CBO report. Interesting...
Or we could go to the pledge of Mr. Hope and Change, you know, the one that says no American making less than $250k a year will see any of their taxes increase. Welllllll, except for all of the taxes and fees in this plan that will hit Americans making $60,000 or more. I wish that would have been on all of the open, transparent C-Span negotiations that were televised when this bill was crafted...
Or wait, I know, there's the plan to further defund an already bankrupt govt. healthcare system, Medicare, to the tune of $500 billion. Super that should work out well...
I can't even talk about Pelosi, her comments makes my head hurt. So we'll move on to another Mensa grad, our very own Louise Slaughter. You know, the Congresswoman who wants to "deem" the bill law because, the Dems don't have enough votes for an up/down procedure? Yes the brilliant head of the Rules Committee had this recent thought-provoking insight...

Rep. Cliff Sterns (R) FL., "So the real question I have for you folks (Democrats): Why are veterinarians part of this health care bill?" [referring to $285 million loan forgiveness for vets]
Rep. Louise Slaughter (D) NY, "Have you ever heard of swine flu?"


These are the people who want to run healthcare for us? W-O-W...

Really?

As if everything else this charlatan of a Puppetdent has done hasn't been an utter failure, now there's this

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203863204574346610120524166.html


Are you kidding me? So $2 billion of our dollars can fund offshore oil drilling for Brazil with the full benefit to go to China, why? Because, some lunatic named George Soros (one of the largest shareholders of Petrobras), has been such a huge financial donor to Obama and it's payback time? Congrats Liberal America, "Hope and Change" is going to lead to $4 gallon gas again. It's time to wake up and get a clue. The average American citizen doesn't want this crap anymore. Nov. 2010 and 2012 can't come soon enough...

"A Government big enough to give you what you want, is big enough to take away everything you have"

I started this as a response to my good friend The Wannabe Outdoorsman's post regarding Barry's speech to schoolchildren (click his link on the right to read), but then it got too long-so here goes!

My friend,

Ok so Cap And Trade we'll have to agree to disagree on...

The stimulus bill is helping your industry? My business with my clients has soared this year. Great, but our industries aren't the sole buoy to hold up the nation's financial ship. We have to think bigger than the personal microcosm here...Banks are repaying loans? So what, that's not a major indicator of economic growth, and viability. In fact in this instance it's going to hurt us in the long run. Why? Because of the correct point you said about interest rates going up.

The packages’ spending (like virtually all failed govt. stimulus plans of the past 70 years) is based on the Keynesian theory that injecting money into government projects will eventually make its way to American workers. Theoretically then, when the economy is in better shape it can repay the debt through taxes.
The problem with this failed principle is that, if a government has to borrow or create capital to finance these types of public projects, (which ours is) GDP growth will be reduced as a result of debt, interest on debt, higher interest rates and taxation of the citizenry to repay the debt. The larger the sum of money borrowed to finance growth, the heavier a repayment schedule, the higher interest rates go, the larger the tax burden is to be repaid by all Americans and the greater a hindrance on economic stability and growth of GDP.

In fact, economic estimates already are calling for a precipitous fall in GDP by 2020 if not sooner... In the meantime my friend, unemployment hit 9.5%, while real unemployment hovers around 16.5%. Over two million jobs have been lost since Mr. Hope and Change took office. Foreclosures are rising, while economists expect 1.5 million people to file bankruptcy this year. Many states are facing severe fiscal crises, with California being on the verge of bankruptcy. And you say it was scary for a while?? Maybe it was, but now it's positively terrifying.

Now my favorite issue, taxation. Yeah bro, no one wants more taxes and no one wants a high deficit, but to have Barry raise taxes and quadruple the deficit in the same term is financial lunacy! Who the hell wants to hear or deal with both of those things at the same time? Moreover, just because you and those in D.C. deem the top 2% to have expendable income, (i.e. the fact that they won't miss a meal) doesn't mean that it's ok for the govt. to straddle them with more of the burden for everyone else than they already bear.

Yeah, no shit, no one complains about making more money...for now... Wait to see how many employers pay people anything over $250k when tax liabilities go up. How happy or motivated will people be then? Or should we all just be happy with that amount because, after all, that's more than the average person makes, why should anyone want more than that? That's not what this country was founded on my friend. In fact, I'll remind you:

“I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the constitution which granted a right to congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents…Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government." -James Madison.

"To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” — Thomas Jefferson

"A wise and frugal government… shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” -Thomas Jefferson

This sums it up brilliantly...

I would've bet the farm...

...that the lionizing of Ted Kennedy would've happened. Really? Now look, I don't wish suffering on anyone, but am I in a state of mourning? Absolutely not. One only mourns what one misses. The fact that people want to cling so badly to some delusional notion that the Kennedy family is the paradigm of altruism, is itself ludicrous, but that Teddy was some kind of hero? Repugnant... Folks, we're talking about a man who:

1.) Honored politicians who threatened the poor, disabled, and marginalized. When George C. Wallace in February 1974 announced his candidacy for a third term as governor of Alabama, he noted that several prominent Northern politicians had flown to the state capitol of Birmingham to kiss his ring. One of those was Kennedy, who contemplated running for president in 1976, a time when the South was still up for grabs. All of those Northerners, Wallace told his followers at a morning press conference, had but one message: “How great thou art in Alabama!”

2.) Cheated on his first wife from the moment the two were married; in December 1985 grabbed a waitress at Washington’s La Brasserie restaurant, picked her up from the table and threw her into the lap of his oh so honorable friend Sen. Chris Dodd, whereupon he proceeded to rub his genital area against her; and in September 1987 screwed his blonde girlfriend on the floor of La Brasserie. (Class, Class, Class)

3.) In a little-noticed vote in April 1976, favored a joint Senate resolution to define personhood as beginning at conception. However, when it became politically expedient for him, he turned his back on this. Not only did Kennedy by the 1980s come out in support of Roe v. Wade; he also supported taxpayer funding of abortion. His most consequential pro-choice advocacy was the 1987 Supreme Court hearing of nominee Robert Bork. Standing on the Senate floor, Kennedy assailed Bork as a jurist whose rulings would force women to resort to “back-alley abortions.”

4.) Further, on the politically expedient "Teddy the Lion", in 2004 he was the driving force behind a law in Mass. (when Mitt Romney (R) was governor, and Sen. John Kerry (D) was running for Prez.) that essentially removed the right of the governor to appoint a potential successor for Kerry and instead left the decision to a special election. Ok, I guess... Though I found it laughable last week, when I read it was Kennedy himself who proposed the law be changed back, now that Mass. has a Democrat for governor and he needed to be assured that his soon to be vacant Senate seat would be filled by an appointed Democrat. Oh yes, what a "wonderful champion of law" was Teddy.

5.) Then there's the "booming-voiced lion of the Senate" who mysteriously was stricken dumb when his nephew William Kennedy Smith raped a girl at the Florida compound...Oh I know, Smith was acquitted, but then so was O.J., so don't give me that bullshit argument...

6.) In May 1951, anxious about maintaining his eligibility for athletics for the next year, he had a friend who was knowledgeable on the subject, take his Spanish language examination for him. The two were quickly caught and expelled, but in a standard Harvard treatment for cases of this kind, they were told they could apply for readmission in a year or two after demonstrating good behavior.

7.) On the night of July 18, 1969, Kennedy was on Martha's Vineyard's Chappaquiddick Island at a party for the "Boiler Room Girls", a group of young women who had worked on his brother Robert's presidential campaign the year before. Leaving the party, Kennedy was driving a 1967 Oldsmobile Delmont 88 with one of the women, 28-year-old Mary Jo Kopechne, as his passenger, when Kennedy drove off Dike Bridge into the Poucha Pond inlet. Kennedy escaped the overturned vehicle, swam to safety and left the scene. He did not call authorities until after Kopechne's body was discovered the following day.
On July 25, Kennedy pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident and was given a sentence of two months in jail, suspended. (shocking, I know) That night, he gave a national broadcast in which he said, "I regard as indefensible the fact that I did not report the accident to the police immediately", but denied driving under the influence of alcohol and denied any immoral conduct between him and Kopechne. (Riiiiiight)
In January 1970, an inquest into Kopechne's death took place in Edgartown, Massachusetts. At the request of Kennedy's lawyers, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ordered the inquest be conducted in secret. (I wonder why?) The presiding judge, James A. Boyle, concluded that some aspects of Kennedy's story of that night were not true, and that "negligent driving appears to have contributed to the death of Mary Jo Kopechne." A grand jury on Martha's Vineyard staged a two-day investigation in April 1970 but issued no indictment, after which Boyle made his inquest report public. Kennedy deemed its conclusions "not justified."


So folks this is the man, who for all of his "successes" as a politician, had more than his share of a politician's failures...Honor him if you must, I'd prefer to honor true heroes that died this year. Men whose death, was merely mentioned in passing, if not altogether overlooked by the media at large. Men like Henry Allingham, Kenneth Reusser, Darrell "Shifty" Powers, George E. Wahlen, Robley Rex, Ray Nance, Russell E. Dunham, James E. Swett, Harry Kinnard and Robert Prince.

If it wasn't so ridiculous, it would be tragic...

The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775 - they've had 234 years to get it right; it is broke, and even though heavily subsidized, it can't compete with private sector FedEx and UPS services.

Social Security was established in 1935 - they've had 74 years to get it right; it is broke.

Fannie Mae was established in 1938 - they've had 71 years to get it right; it is broke.

Freddie Mac was established in 1970 - they've had 39 years to get it right; it is broke. Together Fannie and Freddie have now led the entire world into the worst economic collapse in 80 years.

The War on Poverty was started in 1964 - they've had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our hard earned money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor"; it hasn't worked.

Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965 - they've had 44 years to get it right; they are both broke; and now our government dares to mention them as models for all US health care.

AMTRAK was established in 1970 - they've had 39 years to get it right; last year they bailed it out as it continues to run at a loss!

This year, a trillion dollars was committed in the massive political payoff called the Stimulus Bill of 2009; it shows NO sign of working; it's been used to increase the size of governments across America, and raise government salaries while the rest of us suffer from economic hardships. It has yet to create a single new private sector job. Our national debt projections (approaching $10 trillion) have increased 400% in the last six months.

"Cash for Clunkers" was established in 2009 and went broke in 2009 - - after 80% of the cars purchased turned out to be produced by foreign companies, and dealers nationwide are buried under bureaucratic paperwork demanded by a government that is not yet paying them what was promised.

So with a perfect 100% failure rate and a record that proves that each and every "service" shoved down our throats by an over-reaching government turns into disaster, how could any informed American trust our government to run or even set policies for America's health care system - - 17% of our economy?


Couldn't have said it better myself. And people wonder why the "angry, un-American, Nazi-mobs" are showing up at town halls to voice their collective displeasure with this sham of a bill? Please...

Beat it...

I'm so sick of the continuing coverage of the death of Michael "Nosferatu" Jackson. Really America? Really? How is it that a child-molesting, pedophile gets so much attention, but soldiers, volunteers, etc... are largely ignored? How is it that news like the bloated cap and trade bill stumbling through Congress, a disastrous unemployment rate, failed 'stimulus' packages, etc...are deemed not as important as the loss of this sicko who just happened to be able to sing and dance? Disgusting...
To NY representative Peter King, congrats for speaking your mind! To Michael Eric Dyson, who spoke on MSNBC, Michael Jackson on par with Mozart? That exceedingly moronic statement sickened me. Yet, Jackson is soooo important that the bankrupt state of California has to have its largest city pay for a public memorial? It's hard to feel sorry for these fools...
