That’s Some Expensive Pork

How much for sliced ham? I guess it’s pay back time for supporting Obama, but jeez, if they want ham, it’s a lot cheaper in Iowa, or may be he could just send Michelle. This mountebank is bankrupting us for non-sense. 2 mill for a ham? They’ve hanged people for a lot less.

The Right Guy Stimulus Plan: What I Would Do If I were the H*IC

leave a comment »

The Right Guy Stimulus Plan
  1. Repeal of all federal taxes (thereby abolishing the IRS as we know it).
  2. Implement a national sales tax of 10-15%(on everything).
  3. Implement zero based budgeting.
  4. 20% across the board budge cut the first year, 10% each year there after for a total of four years. Eliminate some agencies.
  5. In regards to capital gains tax and inheritance tax, see 1.
  6. All bailouts cease. All institutions that took money from the government will pay it back at a prevailing rate. If they go under, we own the assets.
  7. Either Social Security must be scrapped or everyone contributes into it.
  8. A roll back of emission standards to 2006 standards for 4 years.
  9. No more corporate subsidies, no more individual subsidies. If you make gasoline, make gasoline, you don’t need our help. The same for corn, soybean, milk or anything else.
  10. Repeal of the minimum wage.
  11. Repeal of the Wagner act.
  12. The creation of a national Right To Work law.
  13. Repeal of the CRA.
  14. Begin drilling for oil anywhere in the U.S. and its territories, like ANWR, and any coast.
  15. Overhaul of the Federal Reserve.
  16. Extend our domain from 12 miles to 50-200 miles where applicable for offshore limits. Enforce them as well.
  17. Sign free trade agreements with as many nations as possible. This means we can sell anything anywhere without restriction or tariff, and vis versa.
  18. Federal monies that go to states are directly proportional to their population and contribution (and therefore tax base). You can’t get more than you put in.
  19. Nations where our troops are stationed: Germany, Korea, Iraq etc, will have to pay for our troops that are there. If they cannot pay in some way, we leave.
  20. Reduce foreign aid by 50%.

Stimulus?

leave a comment »

Barack Hussein Obama has his bowels in an uproar over the fact that the republicans (and the American People) are holding back their support for this bill. Each party involved has their own priorities in this fiasco, so lets take a little closer look at them. 

President Obama has to pay back a lot of people for his getting into office. The only people that are being stimulated by this bill are people that supported BHO and people that work for the government. Look at the subsidies promised to ACORN for example. We will pay billions to this corrupt organization because they committed fraud to put another fraud in office. 
The democrats in congress want this bill to go through as is because one, like republicans, and most politicians, they want to make it look like they are doing something. call it busybody disease if you will. If they aren’t doing something, no matter how feckless on one hand or outright corrupt or insane on the other, they feel they aren’t doing their job. What they don’t realize is that the less they do on our behalf, the better off we would be. The other MO for the democrats is that they are in on the BHO group think to move us towards socialism. Look for items in the bill that pertain to healthcare, welfare and education. Yet another reason for the pork is just because they feel they can do it.¬†
Now, with the republicans, the figure they can make political hay out of this by not supporting the bill and letting it hang on the democrats neck like an albatross. The problem is that too few of them truly agree with common sense americans that the bill is horse shit and they suffer from the same busybody disease as the democrats. They look at polls and judge how long they have to appear to fight the bill to get the greatest benefit all the while back room negotiating for the pork and earmarks they can believe in. Just like TARP, they will get on board when they have been bought off cheaply. 
There is next to nothing in this bill that will get us out of any recession or depression. In fact, it will makes things worse. This quote has been making the rounds lately and I thought it would make a good lesson for our ersatz president: “You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by¬†legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person¬†receives without working for, another person must work¬†for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take¬†from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do¬†not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that¬†it does no good to work because somebody else is¬†going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is¬†about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it”. This has been attributed to Dr. Adrian Rogers, although I have my doubts. Still, it rings true, and right now, Mr Obama and his cadre of socialist mountebanks are preparing to implement not only unwanted and feckless obligations, but obligations for which all of us will be in peonage for quite some time to come.¬†

Right now it doesn’t look good. My guess is that the republicans will fold because they don’t want to been seen as feckless for doing nothing, so they will barter for their own pork. Right now, the best we can hope for is a change in voting habits in 2010. I have to wonder if there aren’t several million people right now wondering why they voted for this incompetent hope and change freak from Chicagoland. Right now we are stuck with this double talking charlatan and his equally tergiversating distaff.¬†
