  • Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

    Ronald Reagan


    When the government's boot is on your throat, whether it is a left boot or a right boot is of no consequence.

    Gary Lloyd


    We have a system that increasingly taxes and subsidizes nonwork.

    Milton Friedman


    The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money

    Alexis de Tocqueville


    Those of us who manage the public dollars will be held to account to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and our government.

    Barack Hussein Obama, 1/20/09


    My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it.

    Barack Hussein Obama


    “And the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history”

    Nancy Pelosi, Election Night 2006


    A community organizer can't bitch when communities organize.

Random Cogitations 2/22/09

  • It continues to appear that Tea Party USA is gaining momentum; the sleeping giant is awakening, and BOY IS HE PISSED!
  • Public schools have failed miserably in educating students on economics. This is clearly evident when listening to people discuss the current economic situation. On C-SPAN this morning, I heard a caller lamenting how he has such high property taxes, yet corporations such as the eeeeevil Wal Mart get tax breaks, while the commoners get slammed. My answer to THAT is we are overtaxed to pay for all of the entitlements and pork thrust on us by power-hungry politicians. Placing an undue tax burden on corporations has lead to many of them moving factories outside of the US, thus resulting in job losses. More taxes on business is analagous to biting the hand that feeds us.
  •  Between election day and 2/12/09, the Dow fell 18%. I don’t want to hear ANY Obama voter bitch about their 401k. 
  • Back in June, when George Bush was President, the Congressional Budget Office forecast the 2009 budget deficit to be $482 Billion; liberals and Democrats were utterly INCENSED over this. B. Hussein’s new plan puts the budget deficit at $1.7 trillion, and the silence from these same people is deafening. 
  • Hope and Change; the Obama mantra. That massive increase in the Federal budget deficit is definitely Change. Now, Slick Willy is advising a little more Hope from The Messiah.  I wonder if Slick Willy’s wife’s boss will take the advice?
  • Presumably, Chandra Levy was a Democrat (she was an intern with a Dem Rep from California). Although I don’t know her family’s political views, nor do I know either her’s or her families views on illegal immigration, it’s interesting to note that her suspected killer is an illegal immigrant from El Salvador. 
  • The New York Times feels that the government should take over the banks. I wonder if they feel the same way about large newspapers? 
  • B. Hussein is apparently trying to stem the tide of his falling approval numbers. Yesterday, he announced that we will be getting our tax cut by April. Try not to spend all of that $65 per month (for a family; less for individuals) all in one place. 
  • The Democrats have been obsessed with ensuring that the rest of the world likes us. But that was BEFORE the election. Apparently, that has changed.
  • Students at NYU barricaded themselves in a cafeteria, protesting the lack of budget transparency of the University. “The students wanted NYU to release information on its budget and endowment, including staff salaries and financial aid. The students also wanted the university to release its investment strategy and the names of the people and firms involved in it. “  How dare them? 

When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe    –   Thomas Jefferson

The Coming Tea Party?

B. Hussein’s true liberal colors are now fully evident.  It is clear that he has initiated  a full-out assault on the producers in this country (middle class WORKING taxpayers, corporations, etc), and it is not going unnoticed.

Protesters lined the streets in Mesa Arizona this week to greet BHO with signs such as “Free Beer For My Horses” and “Give Me Liberty Or At Least A Big Screen TV!”. And CNBC had Larry Santelli from a trading floor in Chicago say that there was going to be a “tea party in July”, as he was incensed that the government is forcing us to pay the mortgages of those who had no business in the first place being given a loan that they couldn’t pay back.

New websites protesting the redistribution of taxes in the form of mortgage bailouts are also popping up, such as Angry Renter.

And in Pennsylvania protesters greeted Obama-ally Arlen Specter with a protest over his recent support of Porkulus.

If it weren’t for the damage they do to our Capitalist and Democratic system, these Libs would be fun to watch…

Obama’s Ministry of Truth

One of the goals put forth by B. Hussein was to utilize the internet to communicate to the American People. We saw the unprecedented website of “The Office of the President Elect” , and a revamped White House website.  And since inauguration, it seems as though more and more .gov websites popping up out of nowhere.

And while I think it’s great to have government transparency in the form of information for the whole country to see, if that information is false, it does more much more harm than good. Such information in previous years would be call “propaganda”.

Well, Recovery.gov is one of those new websites, and The Heritage Foundation has a piece on their blog showing that the data is “completely made up” And in an Orwellian twist, the administration has “corrected” job numbers so that there is no discrepancy.  What next-the “Thought Police”?

PA Election Worker Faces Charges

I know this is extremely hard to believe, ESPECIALLY in Pennsylvania, but a poll worker is facing charges for his alleged *GASP* vote tampering for B. Hussein Obama.

On election day, there were numerous anecdotal reports on local radio in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area of various voting irregularities, but this is t he first I’ve heard of any legal involvement.

Now if they’ll only investigate that cess pool 0f vote fraud, Philthadelphia….

7 broken Obama promises from Porkulus

This is for all of you who voted for B. Hussein based on various promises he made while campaigning.  I found this over at Sweetness and Light.

7 Broken Promises in Record Time

1. Make government open and transparent.

2. Make it “impossible” for Congressmen to slip in pork barrel projects.

3. Meetings where laws are written will be more open to the public. (Even Congressional Republicans shut out.)

4. No more secrecy.

5. Public will have 5 days to look at a bill.

6. You’ll know what’s in it.

7. We will put every pork barrel project online.


Specter the sell-out

Arlen Specter (RINO-PA) once again abandoned the Republican party through his vote this past week for Porkulus.

The New York Times has an informative article on his motives for doing so (and it WASN’T at all based on the wishes of his constituents).
