The very definition of BLASPHAMEY!

I started to read the Time article in the barber shop. What a crock – pure bull excrement! There is nothing this president won’t do to get reelected. They had a graphic to show the similarity between the two. What really leaps out is the difference in experience. Reagan had higher unemployment and a lower approval rating. But he lost far fewer seats in Congress at the first mid-term election.

Continue on to view the definition of pure BLASPHAMEY!

Happy New Year!

This year, the President will concentrate on jobs and the economy. He has told us so.

This is the scene where the attorney stands up, glances at the jury, as if to say, “Watch this”, and asks, “Are you lying now or were you lying then?” In the case of our President he was lying then. While constantly talking about jobs, behind the scene he was working on his agenda. And his party paid a heavy price – and rightly so.

He may still be lying because he is also starting his campaign for 2012. Remember 9.8% unemployment, and never forget. This after TWO years. Instead of concentrating on the economy, his administration worked to fundamentally change our government. The uncertainty introduced kept the unemployment high. And we are still at risk. The only recovery worse than the present was called the Great Depression. And it was Great because FDR and his ilk thought government could manage the economy while also fundamentally changing government.


The Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010

No Democrat leaders were at the signing. The total cost of what is called a “tax-cut bill” is pegged at $858 billion. Of course a significant “cost” is really due to blocking a tax hike. That is because CBO calculations are based on current laws in effect. Ergo, it assumed the Bush era tax cuts would expire 1 Jan 2011. Bringing back the estate tax is totally a tax hike. Just not as much as the Democrats wanted. The rest could be more correctly called stimulus II. Still, this is likely to provide more true stimulus then the equivalent cost of the first stimulus bill.

A busy day in the US Senate

For an organization that normally only meets three days a week, the lame-duck Senate is working overtime. And they have many pressing matters to attend to – just like last week. All because this Congress didn’t do it’s job for most of the year. Pathetic! People of Nevada, what were you thinking? Senator Reid is still trying to use cram-down methods which have more in common with Hugo Chavez than George Washington. The agenda includes:

Deja vu all over again

Last year Congress worked right up to Christmas eve to pass Obamacare. Now they introduce an Omnibus Spending Bill for fiscal year 2011 of 1,924 pages loaded with pork. Keep in mind the 2011 fiscal year started October 1, 2009. That alone should cause us to fire them all. The Senate bill FY 2011 Omnibus Appropriations Act totals $1.1 trillion. The government will run out of money December 18th. What a bunch of jerks.

Start sending emails, phone calls, or both. Especially any Senators, specifically Democrats, who will face election in 2012. These people haven’t learned anything in this last year. And we can start here.

Keep your correspondence as civil as possible but you could quote Howard Beale of Network, “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!”.


2012 Elections

One day after election day 2010 and the talking heads on almost every TV news show are lining up who will run in 2012. Good grief! A lot can happen in two years. There is a lot of work to do in the next few weeks let alone two years.


Stop the insanity dear leader!

Civilian trials that give citizen rights to enemy combatants caught on the battlefield is utterly stupid and violates even minimum common sense. And now WE HAVE PROOF!

A jury in New York has acquitted Ahmed Ghailani, the first Guantanamo detainee to face trial in a U.S. civilian court, of all but one of 285 charges against him. Ghailani had been charged with conspiracy in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and his native Tanzania. He faces a minimum of 20 years in prison, but his attorneys plan to appeal the conviction.

Note the test case chosen was one which resulted in far more African deaths than US citizens so there would not be much of an outcry if the verdict went wrong. Which it did. And the one charge they found him guilty of?

Sarah Palin must really be polling well

Not only are the Democrats and media throwing crap at her, but so is the Republican establishment. The Republicans need new leadership! Once Christine O’Donnell won the primary, they should have rushed in to get her up to speed as quickly as possible. Delaware should vote her in just to stick it to the establishment of BOTH parties.

Of course the Politico article doesn’t name anyone so it might be a Democrat attempt to cause trouble within the Republican leadership; Or it could be a single individual Republican off the reservation. With no names attached, it certainly isn’t journalism! Gossip maybe… embellished for effect. Whoever the source, I sure wouldn’t want them on my cleaning staff let alone any position of trust or as an advisor. First guess? Steve Schmidt.

Then there is this; If the Republicans don’t get their act together, 2012 might well be another 2008. It is way to early to talk about 2012.

CINC redefined

CINC used to mean Commander IN Chief. With this administration, it means Campaigner IN Chief.

The Republicans will almost certainly take control of the House and the Senate is in play.

He is out trying to fire up his base. The Independents have largely left his cause since they didn’t get the change they had hoped for. In less than 24 months, his administration has added to the national debt an amount greater than the debt from George Washington through Ronald Reagan. Be sure to point this out to ANYONE who speaks of the Reagan deficits.
