the budget proposal

Sure is pretty, all dolled up and reading like another campaign speech.

If you have to sell it, something is wrong.
If you need to add sugar, it must be bad.
I am done with discussing this for a while, it is driving me nuts. He truly does not get it, he thinks that he can get an 'A' for a pretty paper, can fix things with a pretty speech. He is wrong, it takes more than that.

Say hello to a long recession

One of the worst things to do when the economy is bad is to raise taxes on those that produce; not only things but jobs. So, what does our President do? He plans on raising taxes on those that produce.
Obama's Budget: Almost $1 Trillion in New Taxes Over Next 10 yrs, Starting 2011

DO not be fooled by that date, just having this knowledge out there will force Businesses to either simply close, or, more likely, head to a country that has a much better tax structure.

Can't. Write. More. Head. Hurts

Sickening

We knew this was coming, another campaign lie by Obama, this lie directed at the right. He claimed he had respect for the first amendment, and now is going to attack guns.
First, reinstate the 'assault weapons' ban that Clinton enacted. Remember, the ban that included many hunting rifles? Insanity. oh, and it wouldn't be an attack on the first amendment with out the bull-crap rhetoric:
"I think closing the gun show loophole, the banning of cop-killer bullets and I also think that making the assault weapons ban permanent


Now, however, there is a new reason. It is to save those poor Mexican drug dealers from killing each other. Really, I am not making this up.
Holder said that putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border
.

I have an idea, let Mexico worry about Mexican drug dealers killing each other in Mexico, and if the guns are streaming across the border from the US, well, let Mexico build a fence. Seriously, build a wall so nothing can come into Mexico from America.
On last shot at the obvious lies:

with cartels employing automatic weapons and grenades


Those things are already illegal to buy in America, this ban will not change that.

Interesting question

I was asked an interesting question last night, time to address it I guess.
hell is it real or just pr from the church to keep you in line?


rather deep, sure, but one that is easy to answer, and, impossible to answer at the same time. The quick answer is yes, hell is a warning by religious leaders, there most likely is not a physical place called hell out behind Jupiter or in the center of the earth. Religions, all of them, tend to promise a reward for being good and a punishment for being bad, much like life.
If we breathe (good) we live. If we forget to breathe (bad) we die. Same goes for eating and sleeping. Then, as we become more cerebral, there are other innate goods and bads, or right/wrong. These are inbred, things like avoiding the rattle of a snake, not jumping off big buildings, not insulting an Eagles Linebacker in a bar.

Now, death sucks, it is the end, and so many people are afraid to die that others realized it would be a good idea to simply teach that death was not a bad thing, in one way or another we simply changed planes of existence. This has been taught in many ways, reincarnation, joining the Gods, Heaven and others. Ascribing this life after death to everyone didn't keep people from doing bad stuff until it was decided that humans could be even more controlled if living actions determined the after-life qualities. Hence, hell, or coming back as a bug, or instead of being a God, being a tree. So that is the simple version, the easy way out.
Now, for me, personally, not as easy to vocalize. Hell is not something that happens after death, it is right here, right now, as is Heaven. These words, as shown above, cover all the aspects of each religion, don't pigeon hole me into just one. If life is lived in a manner that would please your fellow man, chances are it would also please God, hence, Heaven. If life is lived in a manner that truly hurts others, then, well, internal hell. Everyone I have ever met that lived honestly in a manner that was proscribed by a deity was a happy person, those who pretended to live that life were miserable, and those that chose to live in opposition to were rudderless. Rudderless is neither sad nor happy, but existing, breathing, and living day to day in a manner that denotes survival, but not fulfillment.
I am not preaching any one goal, just pointing out that those who pick one, stick to it, and live it, are pretty happy people (the honest ones.)
For instance, a christian that judges others based on a choice of worship is not an honest christian, that person has missed the teachings of the Old testament. That person will not be happy.
Or, someone who is reincarnated in a higher caste must have been good in a previous life or if that person is not good in this life, the caste level will drop. All of this must be done honestly.
I mentioned honesty quite a bit, and am off the Hell topic pretty far, but they go together. Try it, think back to the last lie you told...how did you feel? Honestly, how did you feel? Were you proud of yourself for lying?
Thought not. Now, think back to the last time you felt pride for someone other than yourself, how did you feel?
Welcome to heaven.
Oh, and the worst lies to tell are those we tell ourselves.

Mr. Obama, you are the President, stop campaigning

Stocks fall as Obama fails to deliver details

I had to give up on watching it live, it was too much like everything we had been hearing the last year or more.

Oh, and if a man that was a sitting Senator complains about inheriting this mess one more time, I might just puke. Either he is admitting that he did nothing while in the Senate or he has no clue as to how Government works. He had the power, was in the party in power since 2006, and gee whiz, that is when it really began to get bad.

Please sir, stop campaigning and tell us something detailed, no more hope, no more change, this is reality.

Live blogging the speech

Here we go,
Even my 15 year old son understands the applause is over the top, and now it happens again.
I think Pelosi is gonna break a cheek
Now applause for the woman who hates America
why?
Oh, for respect, sorry, she gets that.
Economy first, and life is horrible, Why? positive please.
Pelosi needed to see her copy to know when to clap, I wonder if he is going to install applause signs
How can you take responsibility for the future when you just mortgaged it.
Blaming and looking bakwards AGAIN.
Here we go, let us blame the past.
Imported oil is due to the Democrats
Schools fail due to Democrats
debt is due to Democrats.


He is campainging, I am turning it off.

One good thing

House Democrats propose $410B spending bill

There is one good thing in this bill, a reversal of a policy that was created under Clinton and enacted under Bush, that of the free run on Mexican trucks into our cities.
In another change, the legislation bans Mexican-licensed trucks from operating outside commercial zones along the border with the United States. The Teamsters Union, which supported Obama's election last year, hailed the move.

Of course the rest of the bill is socialist crap, including loosening restrictions on travel to Cuba, but in the spirit of intellectual honesty I had to give credit for the one thing they got right.

The article does attempt to push the blame for the insane idea of Mexican trucks in America onto the Bush administration when it clearly was a part of NAFTA which was started in 1994.

Hypocrisy still

I noticed couple of things the other day, and it did not really sink in till it was mentioned by a friend earlier today. The first thing is that the new moniker for black people is African-American. The incredible arrogance involved in this notwithstanding, why then do we not celebrate African-American History Month? Tongue in cheek, sure, but the premise merits inspection.
It is not African-American History Month because some of the Black Historical figures are not from Africa. Did all blacks originate in Africa? Who knows, there are many pre-historic skeletons scattered about the globe, we still do not know for sure where man began. I personally am pretty sure the origination of man was somewhere in the fertile valley between the Euphrates and the Tigris rivers.
Anyway, that was a little off topic, so back to it. Black people are not the ones who changed the moniker, guilty white liberals did that, as they have done for years.
I actually thought the first black President would maybe have mentioned that the need for a separate special month of history for one race was wrong, but we all know that is not going to happen, 20 years listening to one of the most racist preachers in the country would make anyone racist too.
So, maybe he will institute an Irish History month instead, or an Italian History month. If not, why not?
I must have had a great education in the West Chester Area School District because even way back in the 1970's, before the advent of these special months, we learned about blacks in history.
We will never get past the racial crap in this country until some of the issues I have discussed here are taken care of.
First, shut up about it, equality happens when we do it with out being guilted into it or shamed into it.
Second, get rid of affirmative action, the worst thing we can do to a person is tell them they will never succeed without special dispensation.
Third, stop liberals from blaming white people for all the ills in the black community. Many years ago there were reasons to blame whites, not any more, now, we must figure out why the rate of single parent births are higher, why violence is higher and why drop-out rates are higher in black communities.
When all of the above is honestly discussed, not simply glossed over, we may become a country that really understands that all men are created equal.

Reuters, still carrying water for Obama

The passage of the massive bill -- the largest fiscal stimulus in U.S. history -- marked a huge victory for Obama.

I have been through this, time and again, a big win would not have "...highlighted partisan division in Washington after it passed the U.S. Congress with only three Republican votes."

Maybe I am crazy, but a huge victory is when you change the minds of the other side. I once told a muscle bound laborer who wanted to kick my ass that kicking my ass would not make him right, I may be hurt, but I would still be right. Luckily I had more buddies on the job site than he did, so I did not get my ass kicked. Oh, was that a huge win for me?

No, that was having more people on my side, no one had a huge win...and again, IT WAS NOT A HUGE WIN, it barely passed in the Senate, needed three turn-coat republicans to pass.

Fox in the Hen House

Arab League in Gaza to document Israeli war crimes

C'mon, even the Jew hating Human Rights Watch had to admit the human rights violations of Hamas this time around, just way too obvious. Launching rockets from schools, yeah, that's not a bad thing. Admittedly targeting civilians? Nah, no problems there.

Important---Ignored

There are things that happen in the world, things that are said that are ignored by those who should not be ignoring them.

Like this for instance:


The fact is that Tehran and Caracas are on the right track in the path of God and humanitarian goals, he said.
"Fortunately, we are now witnessing that the fronts of our enemies have been weakened to a large extent," President Ahmadinejad said.
Once only Cuba and Venezuela were active in the fight against global arrogance but today a number of nations have joined the stiff struggle, he pointed out.


This worries me, Venezuela, a communist country (almost) and Iran, a fascist country (yes), working together to destroy America. Actively working together, not just rhetoric. That bomb that Iran is working on, I hear from the left in America that Iran should have a protective nuke, and besides, they have no missiles that can reach America. Well, they do if that missile is launched from Venezuela, or from Cuba.

Wake up people, they want us all dead or, worse, communist, or even worse, muslim.

20 seconds in, the most impressive sound in the world!

The End?

Happy

Great week upcoming, it is the end of my 42nd year and it has been one of my best. Really, you say...yup. Each year with this family, each minute I spend living the way I am living now is incredible. I used to wonder what it was like to be happy, I have known the full answer these last 9 years, I have know most of the answer for 16 years. The answer is simple really, to be happy, choose to be happy. A very good friend of mine once told me that if things seem bad, someone else has them worse. I know he meant that I not to revel in the misery of others, but that I was to be content with what I had.
I am.
Thank you.

Still campaigning

President Barack Obama ordered the U.S. Treasury on Saturday to implement tax cuts for 95 percent of Americans, fulfilling a campaign pledge he hopes will help jolt the economy out of recession.

Do I really need to point out that the number of people who pay taxes in America does not even begin to tickle 80%, let alone 95%?

This is more rhetoric by the empty suit.
The funny thing is the article goes on to discuss the record number of unemployed, "...With tens of thousands of Americans losing their jobs...", and the rate at about 7%, even if every american worked (babies, old people, sick people) there would still only be 93% left to get a tax cut.

Why is he still campaigning?

Confused

The left, which calls for equality all the time, who are the reason we have to write he/she, the reason we have to call actresses actors and waitresses servers (yeah, those three things really make sense when together in a sentence, don't they?), have now succeeded in lowering the equality bar once again.
George Mason picks drag queen as homecoming queen

How has the bar been lowered you ask? Well, now all men at George Mason can compete in normally women only activities. Men can enter the rest rooms set aside for women, and all men can not take advantage of the title IX provisions. If not, is not George Mason discriminating against straight men? By allowing a special exception for a gay MAN, did not George Mason violate the civil rights act of 1964?
Please, men are men, gay or not, they are still men. If not, well, then the argument that gay men are the same as straight men kinda flies out the window.

Intellectual Honesty people, try it out.

Intellectual Honesty

So here we go, something that was lacking for the last eight years. When Mr. Bush did something wrong, that I thought was too far left, or simply bad for the country, I called him on it, but those on the left continued to disparage the man. That side of the political spectrum seems to be filled with children who cannot give credit where credit is due.
Okay, maybe I am being smug, but shoot, Mr. Obama is the President of my country, if he makes a decision I agree with, I will commend him on it, maybe if enough of his political enemies commend him when he makes a decision that is important for the safety of us all, he will at least swing a little right in terms of national security.
Today, the administration "...shocked human rights attorneys." Even the headline for the arrticle was designed to raise the ire of the left (Obama backs Bush: No rights for Bagram prisoners)...funny that, I guess they eat their own too if they do not tow the line, much like a thread at Kos or DU. comparing Mr. Obama to Mr. Bush must have heads exploding on the left-wing blogs!
For those lefties that read this, please, take no personal offense, it is just that I have been banned from both of those sites for quoting Al Gore, for quoting Barak Obama, for quoting facts. Seriously, I have been BANNED for not being a part of the echo chamber politically.
I will not block you here, dear leftist, post away, keep it clean though, that will get you removed, this is a family type blog.

I am going to keep plugging

I am not going to let those who have screamed global warming for so long to forget it started as global warming.

Arctic Sea Ice Underestimated for Weeks Due to Faulty Sensor


Global warming is a fraud, climate change is real, and it happens all the time, it is NOT caused by humans, it has never been caused by humans, and chances are it will never be caused by humans. This is simply a way for communist, socialist, left wing idiots to try to gain power.

They have been doing this for years, as long as I have been alive (the first earth day sported signs about the next ice age, dooming the earth due to human caused cooling), and they will not stop, ever.

It is a religion to them, I have mentioned this before, with all the trappings of a religion. They have sin>>burning fossil fuels, they have redemption>>carbon credits, they have a Messiah>>Al Gore, and they have the dooms-day scenario>>Oceans rising.

Well, I want no part of it, it is a sham, and I will not let the left forget it started as global warming, and in 20 years, when the left is screaming about the next ice age, I will point to all my posts predicting they will be screaming about ice ages in 20 years.

This is getting funny

this would be real funny if it wasn't straight from the political machine that gave us our current President.

Illinois gov.: Burris should resign from Senate

What a mess that Chicago scene is!

Why? Why do they lie to us?

for years, George Bush has been saying that Iran is trying to enrich plutonium to build a bomb, for yeas the leftists in America, at the UN, and around the world have been saying that this was not true. So how come the head line today reads:

Iran holds enough uranium for bomb


This is insane, absolutely insane. Cognitive dissonance, lies, hopes, whatever you want to call it, it sucks. When will people realize that there is scum in the world, that not all people are likable, that not everyone wants to sit around a campfire singing kum-by-ya?

I am off to bed now, this ticks me off, I knew it was coming, I knew the UN was lying all along, I am not surprised at all, but I am extremely mad, mad at those who live in this country and do everything the can to undermine it, including mocking the President of the last eight years.

I will not mock Mr. Obama, I will disagree with him.

People should take a minute and go to Daily KOS and search the term 'chimpy', they might be surprised. The compassionate left is a myth.

Now, some stupid cartoon....


oh well, the world is backwards, Iran will have a nuke, then, when Israel is wiped off the map, as promised by the President of Iran, the leftists will act surprised.

At least the author catches the lie

Here is an article where the headline is true, even if inside the main character is caught lying. And the writer catches it, even if it is only with the headline.

E.P.A. Expected to Regulate Carbon Dioxide

So, we all expected that, a global warming alarmist is in charge of the EPA. Here is the lie:
Lisa P. Jackson, the new E.P.A. administrator, said in an interview that she had asked her staff to review the latest scientific evidence and prepare the documentation for a so-called endangerment finding. Ms. Jackson said she had not decided to issue such a finding


This is in regard to a Supreme Court order to determine if the substance we exhale is a pollution. Seems to me that the answer would be no, but then again, if we breathe to much of it, we die. Hmmm, but if there is not enough of it, all the trees die...but trees make oxygen, no oxygen, we die. See, this is harder than it seems folks, it is a good thing she is not ready to make a...oh, wait a minute, read further in the article:
If the environmental agency determines that carbon dioxide is a dangerous pollutant to be regulated under the Clean Air Act, it would set off one of the most extensive regulatory rule makings in history. Ms. Jackson knows that she would be stepping into a minefield of Congressional and industry opposition and said that she was trying to devise a program that allayed these worries.

“We are poised to be specific on what we regulate and on what schedule,” Ms. Jackson said. “We don’t want people to spin that into a doomsday scenario.”


Poised to be specific, on something she is not ready to suggest. Interesting to say the least.

No, we talk too much about race

Our wonderful attorney general has called us cowards in matters of race relations. First of all, BITE ME.
Secondly, sir, you are a member of the administration that was supposed to transcend race, not beat it to death, again.
In a speech to Justice Department employees marking Black History Month, Holder said the workplace is largely integrated but Americans still self-segregate on the weekends and in their private lives.

"Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards," said Holder, nation's first black attorney general.

Once again, the AP manages to present two opposing views in two paragraphs. We don't talk about race, especially during BLACK HISTORY MONTH. Juxtapose much?
Now, personally, I think we talk about it too much, we think about it too much, and people like Mr. Holder are the ones who continue pushing racism on us. This supposedly intelligent guy as not figured out that we are tired of the race baiting, tired of being called names, and tired of the lies.

"White House: Obama Opposes 'Fairness Doctrine' Revival..."

So, now to go read the article. Okay the following is the meat of the short article:
"As the president stated during the campaign, he does not believe the Fairness Doctrine should be reinstated," White House spokesman Ben LaBolt said.

That was after both senior adviser David Axelrod and White House press secretary Robert Gibbs left open the door on whether Obama would support reinstating the doctrine.


There is ambiguity here, the statement does not say that the President would veto a bill that included the fairness doctrine. Saying he does not think it should be reinstated and saying he would veto are two very different things.

this leaves it up to the socialists in congress to decide.
Do we trust them not to gut the first amendment?

Will it stop?

I know the stimulus is bad, all of the financial managers I have talked to know it is bad, and the market knows it is bad, it was bouncing around at 8,000, a nice solid bottom, till the stimulus happened, now who knows how low it will go.
My question is: The republicans in Congress know it is bad, do the Democrats really think it is a good thing? Are they that blind? Or do they also know it is bad and just do not care, anything to push socialism?
Which is it?

Connecting the dots the media won't

So, our state department thinks the vote in Venezuela is a good thing
The career diplomats in the state department finally have a socialist in the White House, they must be so happy. 46% of the people in Venezuela did not want Chavez to be President for life, who knows how the others were coerced, but our state department says:
Clay said that after the vote, "it is important that elected officials now focus on governing democratically and addressing the issues of concern to the Venezuelan people.

Yeah, that is going to happen.
An emboldened Hugo Ch├ívez vowed to speed up “the construction of true socialism” in Venezuela after winning the right to stand for reelection indefinitely – a measure that opponents say puts the country on the path to dictatorship.

I am a 43 year old college drop out, how come I know that this is what the result would be and our state department pretends it didn't know this? Are we as Americans supposed to be that stupid? really?

FIrst CA now KS

This seems to me to be illegal, keeping tax refunds because the government overspent. I wonder if they will offer penalties and interest to those who are being held up in this manner? That is what would happen for sure if the shoe was on the other foot.
Hey, how about the state employees that are not going to be paid, how are they going to be able to pay their taxes?
Read the comments at the article, it seems that more people are catching on to this socialism stuff.

Cognitive Dissonance

I a trying very hard to reconcile the following two paragraphs, and wondering just why the author of the piece does not mention the insanity of the position taken. Groundwork: The secretary of state is in Japan, talking about nuclear proliferation.

During her plane trip, she implicitly criticized the Bush administration for abandoning the so-called 1994 Agreed Framework with North Korea, reached during President Bill Clinton's first term in the White House, which called for the North to give up its plutonium-based weapons program.

The framework collapsed when the Bush team accused Pyongyang of maintaining a separate highly enriched uranium program, about which Secretary Clinton said there was still great debate. As a result, she said, the North had restarted and accelerated its plutonium program, allowing it to build a nuclear device that it had detonated in 2006.

Maybe I am nuts, but the entire world knows that the North Koreans never stopped the weapons program:
Shortly after signing the (1994) agreement, North Korea began seeking nuclear weapons fuel through uranium enrichment.

Mrs. Clinton is lying, just like her husband (he was found in contempt of court for lying under oath), and just like President Obama.

this guy read my blog!

I posted below that President Obama was doing more harm to the economy than was necessary with his lies, now an actual journalist agrees with me!
Obama's Rhetoric Is the Real 'Catastrophe'

He even uses that same argument that I did, that 1982 was worse than now and to say that this is the worst since 1930 is a flat out lie, used for simple political gain.
The latest survey pegs U.S. unemployment at 7.6%. That's more than three percentage points below the 1982 peak (10.8%) and not even a third of the peak in 1932 (25.2%). You simply can't equate 7.6% unemployment with the Great Depression.

So I am not nuts, I just wish more people would research this, would figure out that our President is a socialist bent on taking my money and giving to to someone who did not work for it.

This is what the left thought Bush was going to do

It is not a conservative notion to become a dictator for life, that is the purvey of leftists. It is the way socialists rule, and it is the way communists rule. Why is it the leftists in this country try to claim conservatives are fascists when it is obvious to anyone who can think that it is the communists and socialists that have killed the most humans under the guise of national security. Now, Venezuela is doomed, Chavez will simply use the same thuggish tactics to remain President for life. He will become another Castro, another Stalin, another Saddam Hussein, killing his own people to remain in power, it is the way of the left.
Chavez has already been in power for 10 years and the referendum vote helps clear the way for him to fulfill his declared goal of ruling for decades,

This is the man who insulted our President and then was applauded by leftist citizens. Wait, just wait, when some two-bit dictator from some backwards country insults President Obama I will be the the first to stand up and...fight for him. I do not agree with him, I think he is a socialist and is bad for this country, I am allowed to say that, not some idiot from down south, or some Arab from across the sea. Like him or not, he is our President, and I respect the office. It is a shame that the same can not be said for the democrats in this country.

How do they say this stuff wihtout laughing?

Saudi Arabia, the most backwards rich nation on the earth. Check this out:
He also said that segregation makes it easier for women in the Kingdom to reach high leadership positions. There are more women in key positions in the country than in developed countries, he added.


Then, in two paragraphs we get to the heart of the article, yanno, just what the article is about:“This is not just about having the first woman deputy minister."

Okay, one one hand, complete segregation, including no right to drive a car or even be outside without a chaperon, and some idiot saying that is a good thing for women. Then we find out that just now, in 2009, there is the very first woman deputy minister.

That place is not on my list of travel destinations.

A Win?

the media is trying hard to make this look good, even NPR this morning called it a win. Funny, when George Bush managed to get the No Child Left Behind passed, with both parties voting for it, it was not called a win.

Oh well that is sour grapes, not worth my time, here is the headline:

Obama has first big win in Congress


This is a Comcast headline and they are calling it a major victory. Not even close, sure, he 'won' in that the pork fest passed, but it was a one sided game to begin with. I complained on this blog about that basketball team that won 100 to nothing because the other team was simply not nearly as good, they did not even score a point. Heck, most of the country would not have called that a "major win", but when the administration rams through a bill that passes on pure party line (if you exclude the 7 democrats that voted NO), it is the same exact thing. Had Mr. Obama and Pelosi managed to get just one Republican, I would be willing to give him a slight victory, but no, nothing, and he, and his party are proud of how they 'trounced' the other side, well, they only won because they have more players in the field.

Fairness?

First of all, listen to to what was asked of Bill Clinton by an admitted liberal radio host. Seriously, don't take my word for it, hear it. The host is proud to ask Mr. Clinton if there should be "enforced ,media accountability." Mr. Clinton called for the return of the fairness doctrine or some other form of balance. I find it amazing that a man who swore to uphold the constitution of the United States would call for the return of something that abridged free speech. No one wants to listen to Liberal radio, Air America failed, NPR needs to be federally subsidized, and those smaller liberal shows such as the one above rarely are picked up for national syndication because the numbers are not there.
Now, to be honest, Liberals have most of the tv stations and a huge majority of the print media. I have always wondered why this doctrine does not seem to be aimed at those avenues and why this doctrine is now being pushed by liberals. I won't say this is being pushed by democrats as I am sure, unlike the stimulus pork fest, many democrats would opposed this forced censorship.
Forcing a radio station to carry certain programming, at the expense of other programming is exactly the same as forcing a library to carry certain books at the expense of other books.
That is a road I am sure all but the most tyrannical liberals or conservatives want to go down.

Honesty on the floor



Somebody had to say it, there are many Americans thinking it.

Perhaps

Perhaps this is another sign that Mr. Obama will not be able to completely install socialism.

The bill was passed 246-183 with no Republican help.

The democrats own this particular fiasco, there is no way to pin this to anyone else. This pork laden, socialistic boondoggle belongs to Mr. Obama, simple as that. Even the slobbering media can not blame the fall out from this on anyone but Mr. Obama.

Awesome

GREGG WITHDRAWS AFTER POLICIES TOO MUCH TO STOMACH

Another republican with conviction, finally...I see this as the begining, no, the complete shut-out on the stimulus in the house was the begining, this is a continuation of the resurgence of the party.

I have faith.

No links, no proof, just me

I am tired, it has been a long day. Okay, not too long, I managed to get up off the couch around 8, ran a son to school, went to Physical Therapy, did the taxes, ran a child to swim practice, wrote a short essay for school, and now it is midnight. I guess there was some other stuff in there, but not much. See, that is life, I avoided the news, I checked in at about 4:25 to see how the DOW went, it went up a little, but other than that, I stayed away from other sources.
I need to find a place that provides happy news, not silly stuff like our President comforting a homeless woman, or an actress breast-feeding a starving kid in Africa. We all know that neither one of those people truly cares about the photo-ops, and tomorrow that woman will still be homeless and that baby will still be starving.
No, I want news that makes me smile, that reinforces my love for America.
At a trade show yesterday the presenter bemoaned the economy, I was about to get up a walk out, I didn't need the dismal stuff, but he surprised me. This hardscaper from West Virginia said:
It's tough, it's hard to make sales for you contractors, but, together we can do this. Together we can make the sales we need to make to bring ourselves out of this situation. We can help each other, and we can win.

I sure do wish the politicians in Washington had been at that show.

I am afraid he might be right

Well worth the 6 minutes

What a long night, and a disturbing week. Gloom and doom everywhere we look, our way of life seemingly disappearing. No more, no more, take the time to watch the whole thing, slow down, do it, you know you want to, and if you can get through this without laughing, well, watch it again and again until you do!

The Who

Very fitting, "Same as the old boss"

A funny

I don't know how to embed this, and I prolly shouldn't anyway. I don't need the web police after me!

The Senate Passed it

So, back to committee to reconcile, I hope y'all are still happy with the Hope-n-Change.

No more on this for now, looking for some good news.

The man is lying, flat out lying

We have inherited an economic crisis as deep and as dire as any since the Great Depression. Economists from across the spectrum have warned that if we don’t act immediately, millions more jobs will be lost, and national unemployment rates will approach double digits.

The unemployment rate in 1982 was 9.71 according to this site. Mortgage rates were over 10%, that was the worst recession since the depression, this is a bump in the road compared to that time. Gas was higher, food was higher, and the cost of living was higher.

Mr. Obama has got to stop campaigning, he is President now, he needs to drop the rhetoric and act like a President, not like a spoiled child.

Pure Insanity

Below is a post about out President trying to undermine the constitution, when right here we have judges simply ignoring it. A person has the right to be secure in in person and property, therefore, if someone is on his property illegally, that man should have the right to detain the trespassers in any manner he sees fit. I guess the judge in this case forgot the 4th amendment, or thinks is only applies to criminals.

Being sued for protecting his property when the federal government fails to protect it. I blame the administrations all the way back to the big amnesty foisted upon us by Reagan.

Census

Now our President is trying to oliticize something that is supposed to be apolitical. By handing the census over to a political hack such as Emanuel ( I would have said the same about Rove) is wrong and not enumerated in the Constitution of the United States. This is why he is doing it:

Critics note that the method of counting can skew the census. Democrats have long advocated using mathematical estimates, a practice known as "sampling," to count urban residents and immigrants. Republicans say the Constitution requires a physical head count, which entails going door-to-door.

And this is how it should be done:

The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law dir
ect.

NOT the purvey of the legislative branch, the above is from article 1, section 2, meaning the legislative branch is in charge of the census. This is incredible, absolutely incredible, and must be stopped.

He really thinks we are stupid

Honest mistakes my @$#, Geithner applied for and received compensation for the taxes he was supposed to pay, he knew what he was doing, he is nothing more then a common thief.
Daschle knew what he was doing as well, he didn't report it because it was an ethics violation as well as tax fraud.
"Highest standards ever" No way, most lobbyists ever? yup.

This is the difference

If you didn't know it, or if you spend time at Kos and DU, in America we have relatively clean transfers of power (except for the losers on the left who boo'd the outgoing president, how classy). In the countries that our left adores however:

Venezuela campaign gets rough

In that article are all the things the children at Kos and DU were claiming Bush was doing or going to do. Can you say projection?

'Bout time

Finally, the Phillie's did something smart!

Ryan Howard, Phillies agree on 3-year contract


Now, that is out of the way, we can concentrate on getting, keeping pitchers. Woo hoo, another WS coming to Philly next year!

Just thinkin'

So here I am, doin' nuttin' on a Friday night. I am getting tired of the doom and gloom that pervades every conversation, every blog post, or every news-cast. The world is not going to end because we have a weak socialist President. The world is not going to end because the stock market crashed. We are going to live, and we are going to find happiness in the small stuff again. We are going to smile at our kids, we are going to tell our parents thanks, and we are going to acknowledge our friends more often. We are going to gather for no reason, we are going to help one another, and we are going to come out of this stronger than ever.

Mark my words, America is not dying, Americans are simply re-charging.

Weekend dead

Yeah, there is bad news everywhere, so here is something to take your mmond off of it for 10 minutes...

Most Transparent Ever?

"Well, I read the story in USA Today, and it quotes somebody that works here, so obviously we've -- we know about this story. I'll say this. We reviewed her tax returns, and her tax returns are in order," said Gibbs.


If they knew about it, and were honest about being transparent and open, we would not have had to rely on USA today for the information.

A culture of tax evaders....

Porkalicious

Here is the list of pork in the 'stimulus' package, courtesy of NRO (and LGF poster WriterMom).

This is the one that kills me, not the money for the boxes, but the money to fatten advertising executives.
$650 million for digital-TV coupons; $90 million to educate “vulnerable populations”


Let your senators know how you feel, write them, call them, fax them.

Scare tactics, this time from the President

Obama: Catastrophe coming if Congress doesn't act


This man is driving me nuts. He is the President now, he needs to stop with the campaign rhetoric and get on with running the country. Catastrophe is a loaded word and for the President to use it is an admission that he is losing, either losing the fight for his pork laden bill, or losing his grip on the job. The worst part of all of this is not that he said it off the cuff it is that this was:

in his prepared remarks.


Once again, thought out for the heaviest impact, only now he is the President, not a candidate, his words reverberate around the world, and he does not seem to get that yet, or, if he does, we are in more trouble than we thought.

More scary stuf from the left

California farms, vineyards in peril from warming, U.S. energy secretary warns


I know, if you read the article he is predicting by the end of the century. Well, that is just as much bs as all the rest of the warming crap. That is not what ticks me off though, it is the scare tactics used by the left in this manner. They all screamed that Bush used fear of terrorism to set agendas, well, terrorism is real. This crap changes ever day, from warming to cooling to simple change. Please, no more, do not let this stuff even enter your thought processes, it is bunk and has been proven to be so on many levels.

Hmmm, so what is the population of the US?




Just over 300 million if you didn't know. Then again, if you didn't know, you could be speaker of the house!

This is getting too easy

Robert Gibbs told reporters Tuesday, "The bar that we set is the highest that any administration in the country has ever set."


That s to be the stretch of the day when one considers the ethcs problems of EVERYONE connected to this administration. Sheesh, even the husband of SOS is am impeached President and she has her own problems (Vince Foster, WhiteWater). The thought that this administration is even close to ethical, or would be so, ended when the connections between the President and the terrorist were exposed, TWO FREAKIN' years ago.

Add to all of this the fact that Geithner, our new SOT is a tax cheat and that two more appointees dropped out today and you have the beginning of a joke of an administration.

More reading to make you laugh (or cry as it may be)

Obama's promise of ethics reform faces early test


On Jan. 21, the day after his inauguration, Obama issued an executive order barring any former lobbyists who join his administration from dealing with matters or agencies related to their lobbying work. Nor could they join agencies they had lobbied in the previous two years.

However, William J. Lynn III, his choice to become the No. 2 official at the Defense Department, recently lobbied for military contractor Raytheon. And William Corr, tapped as deputy secretary at Health and Human Services, lobbied through most of last year as an anti-tobacco advocate.


You see, Mr. Obama thinks the American people are stupid, heck, he may be right, they elected him.

Growing a pair?

It looks as if the Republicans in the Senate are joining the House in strengthening themselves in the face of Democrat wasteful spending and illegalities!

Senate GOP blocks extra $25B in stimulus package


Daschle withdraws as HHS nominee

I have to assume it was pressure from the right that caused this thief to withdraw, now if we can get Geithner to resign, maybe Mr. Obama can claim to actually have changed something...hahaha...never gonna happen.

Name that Party

Over at Grouchy Old Cripple (not a family blog, but more family then the other one) they like to play a game called name that political party. While Denny is off on the slopes I found one that is quite interesting:

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd says he'll refinance two mortgages that he received through a VIP program from Countrywide Financial Corp.

Dodd told reporters Monday that the mortgages for his homes in Washington and East Haddam, Conn., will be refinanced with a different company.

Dodd has acknowledged receiving mortgages in 2003 through a VIP program at Countrywide, which was sold to Bank of America Corp. earlier this year and has been the focus of allegations that it gave favorable loan terms to lawmakers.

Dodd says he's moving the loans in part because he was wrongfully labeled a friend of Countrywide's former CEO, Angelo Mozilo. Dodd says he never sought special treatment.

The chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, Dodd says a third party will be involved in choosing the new bank.


That is the full text of the AP report and even at the end we still don't know what party Dodd belongs to, let alone that he was instrumental in the whole mortgage debacle to begin with as the largest recipient of campaign money from Fannie Mae.

Hypocrite



“Make no mistake, tax cheaters cheat us all, and the IRS should enforce our laws to the letter. ” Sen. Tom Daschle, Congressional Record, May 7, 1998, p. S4507.


I really don't need to explain that this man is up for a position in the current administration and he is a tax cheat do I? Oh, that's right, Democrat tax cheats get a pass.

Rangle

Geithner

Both Geithner and Rangle are instrumental in creating the tax code and both are scum tax cheats. What the heck is going on?

freakin' Idiot

TAMPA, Fla. – Olympic great Michael Phelps has acknowledged "regrettable" behaviour and "bad judgment" after a photo in a British newspaper showed him smoking marijuana.

In a statement released to The Associated Press, the swimmer who won a record eight gold medals at the Beijing Games conceded the authenticity of the exclusive picture published Sunday by the tabloid News of the World.

Phelps said: "I engaged in behaviour which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment. I'm 23 years old and despite the successes I've had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again."

No more really needs to be said, other than...Why?

Okay, I know why, but sheesh, ya just hope that this one is going to be different, this one is going to be like those of old, this one is going to make us proud...oh well, nuttin' funnier than people as someone I know and love always says.

And another reason, or the only reason they hate us

Arabs and Muslims find it difficult to acknowledge the positive points in Obama’s speech simply because it included the statement that “the US is and will remain a solid ally of Israel.”

Which is another thing that people have been saying for years, it is the simple Arab hatred of Jews and the American acceptance of Israel that causes much of the terrorism in the world.

People need to read the Koran to understand Terrorism. (yes, I am done looking for the moderates, I am afraid they do not exist)


“O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.” (Sura 5, verse 51).




“And KILL them (the unbelievers) wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.” (Sura 2, verse 191).
