Who Owns the Money You Earn and Union Gouging
When you work, you get paid. Who owns that pay you just earned? President Barack Obama gave a speech recently at Northern Virginia Community College where he told us who he thinks owns what we earn… With all of the media attention to Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Obama’s hot microphone with Dmitri Medvedev, the Romney etch-a-sketch comment and the fugazi war on women, there have been far too many distractions to focus on some serious issues that impact our lives now and our futures… Cities all across America are getting dying because of the bloated pensions, benefits and salaries of their unionized government workers. Just look at San Diego, Chicago and Los Angeles, where you can be a librarian with a pension of over $230,000, or retire with a $500,000 buyout of your “sick days,” or be a convicted kid-touching felon and still receive your government pension.
A Fairness Quiz, Volunteers and Retiring at 50
With the likes of President Barack Obama, Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi and on and on ranting about paying one’s “fair share,” but are they ever asked any questions about the way things really work in America? They need to be challenged, because the false picture they paint of America is nonsense… Volunteers all over America are saving city and state governments billions of dollars – and during a recession it’s much needed and very welcome. At least, that’s what you would think. Not everyone is too happy, though… It’s not just Greece where government workers retire at age 50 – Fairfax County is a just in a long line of mini-Greeces in America. Fairfax County is a double-dippers heaven.
War on Women Continues, more Bank Bailouts and a New Mortgage Lender – the USDA
The Democrats, along with the mainstream media, continue this nonsense about the “war on women.” The new attacks are on Rush Limbaugh – even on the House floor – because of comments Limbaugh made about Georgetown Law School student Sandra Fluke (for which he has since apologized). Even President Barack Obama jumped in the mix, saying he did it for his daughters (which I guess he forgot to do when Bill Maher called Sarah Palin the “c-word.”)… Gas prices continue to go up, but isn’t that the plan Obama and Stephen Chu had all along?… Another one of Obama’s “green economy investments” goes sour – Abound Solar… Fannie Mae needs MORE bailout money, and the FHA isn’t far behind, as the bailouts continue… Another possible bailout is the USDA. Why bail out the USDA? Because the USDA is also a mortgage lender. More taxpayer money at risk because of the government.
The Dependency President and Bad Policies Resulting in Dead American
America continues down the path of deeper and deeper dependency. Contrary to those misinformed emails you keep getting, most of the money spent in DC is not for the military – it’s given to other Americans. Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, food stamps (now called SNAP), welfare and the other more than 70 means-tested welfare programs are nearly three quarters of the federal budget. According to a study by the Heritage Foundation, 67.3 million people now rely on some federal program. What’s been President Obama’s solution? To put this system on steroids – dependence on government assistance went up 23% in just his first two years in office… Government workers in the city of D.C. collected unemployment, while still employed by the city… With such massive deficits and mounting debt that’s increasing faster than the speed of light, it’s a good thing our government is focused on improving the economy by spending millions of dollars on programs that tell us not to drink soda and not to eat food like the wonderful Twinkie… One thing rarely asked by someone on the Left is “then what?” Tune in to find out the “then what?” when an illegal immigrant from Haiti was allowed to stay in America – after getting out of prison because of two felonies.
War on Women’s Health and Whitney Houston’s Significance
With President Obama and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius bossing around religious institutions and health insurance companies, Senators Barbara Boxer, Patty Murray and Kirsten Gillibrand are spearheading a movement, stating you are waging a war on women if you do not want to provide all women with “free” contraception (birth control pills, sterilizations, the morning after pills, IUDs, etc.). Meanwhile, has any one bothered to ask them about free lunches, or 1st amendment protections, this new-found shortage of contraceptives, to explain how a free lunch actually does exist or how it can be one person’s right to have control over what another person has earned… The news coverage of Whitney Houston’s death has been non-stop, but maybe the media is missing out on other important things in life… Samuel L. Jackson said he vote for President Barack Obama because Obama was black.
Bailout for Homeowners, Green Jobs and Booze Stamps for the Poor
First it was the banks and GM and Chrysler. But, now, underwater homeowners will be getting bailed out – if President Barack Obama gets his way. But what’s the real reason behind this bailout?… Another one of Obama’s “green investments” files for bankruptcy. And, his goals for green jobs training result in miserable failure… The Democrats continue to beat the “fair share”drum, with the leader of the orchestra being Obama – even though he has members of his own executive staff that owe back taxes… A bill is making its way through the House of Representatives to prevent people from using their welfare checks (debit cards) at nudie bars and other fine establishments of that sort.
Tax the Rich, Shame CEOs and the “Unreasonable Profits” Board
President Barack Obama, Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the left continue their class warfare. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid joins them and is promising votes to raise taxes on “the rich.” Karl Marx would be so proud… The DoddFrank bill has a little-known rule in it – with the purpose of shaming CEOs… Six Democrats in the House of Representatives (Dennis Kucinich, John Conyers, Bob Filner, Marcia Fudge, Jim Langevin and Lynn Woolsey) have put forth their latest mastermind idea: an “Unreasonable Profits Board.” All this class warfare is just a smokescreen to distract us from the disastrous job our government has done.
Unions “Help” Working Families, Sterilization of Americans and Voter Ignorance
Imagine a job where you show up and do nothing – yet get paid $400k. Oh, and massive benefits, a bloated pension, and even a retirement annuity on top of all that. That’s the life some union members have – with taxpayers footing the bill. How, exactly, does this scam by unions help working families? What’s worse is when you see unions doing it at ground zero… What are you most afraid of? Big corporations? If so, were corporations forcefully sterilizing Americans in the 1900′s?… With how incompetent our gov’t is, you can actually get find for not buying a product that doesn’t even exist… Our Treasury Department loves to brag about any initiative where they don’t screw up. But, when the do mess up, don’t hold your breath on those press releases… The IRS wants more of your money – but not the way you think… Should everyone vote? How informed are most voters?
Skirting Congress, Chocolate for a Healthy Life and Occupy Lawsuits
President Barack Obama’s dictatorial presidency continues as he makes “recess appointments” – three to the NLRB and Rob Cordray to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. This follows a long line of legislative failures (Cap N Trade, the DREAM Act, Net Neutrality, Card Check, etc.) that are now being implemented by the administrative state… Wouldn’t it be great if you could take vacations on private jets and not have to pay for them? Ignoring the fact that you harp on and on about being “green” and reducing your carbon footprint? Must be nice to be Queen Michelle… Only a fool would by fuel for $16 per gallon when it’s available for less than $4 per gallon every where else – unless you’re the government. Especially when you’re the government and you can legally steal taxpayer money to massively overpay for something (from Solazyme) that you’re buying from one of your campaign donors… The idea of a “payroll tax holiday” continues – ignoring the fact that Social Security has unfunded liabilities of trillions of dollars… Only in California can you sue the manufacturer of Nutella on the grounds that they made you think Nutella was good for you. Another gift to trial attorneys, compliments of the state of California… Since they weren’t satisfied after destroying public property and costing taxpayers millions upon millions of dollars in policing/security costs, the Occupy Wall Street protesters are now suing local governments… Shocker: the Obama administration’s “green energy program” was LOADED with politics in every decision – so says the Washington Post… Electricity bills are skyrocketing – just like Obama promised us… And, a warning of the rationing to come…
Million-Dollar Gov’t-Worker Buyouts and Forced to Pay for a Politician’s Campaigning
It’s not just bankers that get golden parachutes – it’s gov’t workers too… DC’s fund for “the poor” is abused by DC council-members, who are fighting till their death to protect their slush funds… Money intended for “the poor” that were affected by Hurricane Irene goes to gov’t workers who fraudulently filled out applications for the aid… Speech after speech after speech, President Barack Obama travels all around America campaigning and fund-raising – all at tax-payer expense… Heather MacDonald points out some little-known reasons why college costs are going through the roof… Think pork-barrel spending went away? Think again… The People’s Republic of California is looking at another looming tax hike… Obama’s administration is spending taxpayer money to educate illegal immigrants about fraudulent immigration scams.
A New Housing Bailout, a Pension Bailout and Obama’s Friends with Benefits
Where are the jobs? I see the over $15 trillion in debt – even after all of the committees our government keeps punting to. Although, we should be in the black soon since Obama said they’ll stop buying coffee mugs on our dime. No one can waste like gov’t, they make the Housewives of Wherever look frugal… First we bailed out the banks, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, GM and Chrysler – the FHA is next. Looks like the dunces in DC can watch a movie 500 times in a row and always be surprised by the ending… California’s Attorney General, Kamala Harris, may sue Fannie and Freddie if they don’t reduce the principal for underwater CA homeowners. Does she still think the tooth ferry is real?… Oh yeah, one more bailout: the PBGC (Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation). Clever name, but it’s a gov’t program, not a “greedy” corporation… Does anything really make more sense than spending half a billion dollars on a disease that hasn’t been seen in America in 62 years? It does when a big shareholder at that company is a big Obama donor… Much the same goes for Bobby Kennedy’s kid and BrightSource which is only a good investment if you’re financially illiterate – which would be another reason why Obama risked out money…. We should pray every day and thank our benevolent govt for creating programs like the People’s Garden Grant Program – without urban gardens, society would crumble… Even Massachusetts Democrat Martha Coakley is proving that a “green economy” is a sham and it’s only green for the connected people who are able to take money from the rest of us taxpayers… Do you really think we can just raise taxes on corporations and think nothing bad will happen? ObamaCare did it on medical devices and they’re responding – Stryker will lay off 5% of its workforce. Actions have their consequences.
Retiring at Age 50, the Stupid Flu and Pelosi’s Push for Unemployment
More pension fraud at government unions – this time it’s the Long Island Rail Road. Must be nice to retire at 50 with a “disability” then play golf and tennis all day with a massive boost in your pension… Californians have caught the “Stupid Flu” – with the bullet train costing more and more every day… Colorado voters are smart enough to realize that throwing money at education won’t make it any better… In this recession, some states have surpluses. What are North Dakota, Alaska, West Virginia and Wyoming doing and why are they way better off than states like California and Washington (throw New York, New Jersey and Illinois in that mix with the states that are Grecian). Maybe the Keystone XL Pipeline has something to do with it… Nancy Pelosi’s brilliance on the new Boeing plant in South Carolina… A tax on Christmas trees – not a joke… More carve outs for special interest groups… And, the failure of the Dodd-Frank Financial Regulations Bill.
Salaries of the Privileged, Madame Moonbeam and Drug Tests for Welfare
San Jose’s Silicon Valley isn’t the wealthiest area in America any more – now it’s the D.C. area. With the high concentration of 6-figure income federal workers and lawyers and the fact that federal employees have not only been immune in this recession but have also prospered, it’s not surprising at all… Over 100 agencies were responsible for oversight and regulation of the financial industry and many of them make over $225,000 per year in wages alone, but we still had the massive meltdown… California’s Governor, Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown, signs multiple bills, putting to rest the question of how big of a union whore he is… Chicago union leaders double and triple dipping in pensions… California keeps spending like there’s no tomorrow, but are tax receipts keeping pace?… If higher energy costs will drive people out of California, maybe “free” health care and medical clinics in Los Angeles will bring more people here. What are the odds that they’ll create any jobs?… Many states are now having welfare recipients take drug tests to prove they’re drug-free to get welfare benefits. And, as always, Lefties are screaming bloody murder… Nancy Pelosi gets offended for all women when Elizabeth Warren and Senator Scott Brown take jabs at each other… ObamaCare gives the shaft to married couples… And, the union president representing ICE officers testifies at the stupid and insane rules officers are forced to follow under Obama’s and Janet Napolitano’s rule.
Student Loans, Foreclosures and What Gov’t Really Does
With Congress’ “super committee” trying to figure out how to resolve our massive growing debt, have they bothered to look at how much federal spending has been growing?… If you’re bogged down in student loan payments or mortgage payments on a house that’s under water, King Barack Obama is coming to the rescue. But will his plans actually help anyone, or just help his 2012 campaign… First Solyndra, now Beacon Power. More taxpayer dollars flushed down the toilet for make-believe green jobs – sort of like the nonexistent biofuel Rodney Hailey was producing and for which he was selling renewal energy credits. All thanks to government programs and laws… Interior Secretary wants our government to “invest” more time and money in finding historic landmarks and parks for “Hispanics…” If you’re a victim of domestic violence, you better hope you don’t live in Topeka, Kansas… The U.S. State Department spent $70k of taxpayer dollars to spread its propaganda to other countries by buying them books written by a certain American politician… What’s the punishment if you’re an illegal alien driving drunk the wrong way on the freeway? Work release on a 11-month sentence that could have been a 10-yr sentence… Federal gov’t employee paid for the past 4 years to just sit at home while the Energy Department figures out what to do with him… More of ObamaCare’s fugazi surplus disappears as HHS recommends burying the CLASS Act… Obama hires another lobbyist… Elizabeth Warren takes the most recent gold medal awarded for hypocrisy.
Political Roundtable – Occupy Wall Street and Obama
A political roundtable discussing: the Occupy Wall Streeters, Obama’s policies, our Education system, Elizabeth Warren, Herman Cain, and the booing of a question at a recent Republican Presidential Debate (amongst many others). Hosted by Crysta Garner with panelists: Domagoj Gotovac, Mike Skibba, Langdon Bosargeand Casey O. Day.
More Benefits for Illegals, Visions of America’s Future and Free Sex Change Operations
The Occupy Wall Street rallies continue… California’s Governor Jerry Brown signs CA’s DREAM Act into law, giving illegal immigrants another benefit… Where is America headed? Marxists Elizabeth Warren and Valerie Jarrett offer us their vision of America’s future – as opposed to Senator Mike Lee’s vision… New York’s governor, Andrew Cuomo (one of the architects of the housing meltdown), has been advised to offer sex change operations under the state’s Medicaid system… Latino students are starting to disappear from Alabama public schools… ICE sweeps out thousands of illegal immigrant fugitive felons… President Barack Obama continues to play identity politics – this time at a White House roundtable regarding “Hispanics.”… California continues to allow its “public servants” to double-dip – sometimes making over $300,000 per year (which doesn’t include benefits) – in a state with massive budget problems and extremely high unemployment… Senator Dick Durbin’s Amendment to the Dodd-Frank “FinRegs” Bill is forcing banks to turn to new sources of revenue – us.
Occupying Wall Street, Racist Bake Sales and Green-Washing
What are the people at the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations all about? Any influence from Uncle Karl (Marx) and Uncle Friedrich (Engels)?… UC Berkeley College Republicans host a bake sale to point out the inherently racist admissions policy of affirmative action at California public universities. Will Governor Jerry Brown bring it back via SB 185?… Shane Bauer, Joshua Fattal and Sarah Shourd (the Iranian-imprisoned “American” hikers) are all now free, but what did Bauer have to say upon his release?… Since our schools clearly can’t teach future generations how to read or write or to do math, they’re just brainwashing them with the help of the NEA and President Obama’s Department of Education into the miraculous benefits of solar panels, windmills and the whole green economy. Green-washing America’s youth – the new movement on the Left… Steven Chu’s Department of Energy rushes out more loan guarantees for “green energy” projects (SolarReserve / Tonopah Solar Energy and Sempra Energy / Mesquite Solar). Let’s hope they’re not another Solyndra. Although, with one going to Nancy Pelosi’s brother-in-law’s company, you never know. Crony capitalism at its finest… Part of Obama’s mini me of a Fugazi Stimulus Bill will allow rejected job applicants sue if they think they were denied a job because they were unemployed. Meaning, Christmas came early for trial attorneys… A principal in St. Louis, MO changed attendance records to get money from the disaster known as No Child Left Behind… And, Milliman reports its results on the impact ObamaCare will have on Ohio.
America’s Education Dictator, Courting the “Black Vote” and Chasing Lenders Out of California
Everyone knows that No Child Left Behind is a disaster, but is the solution for President Barack Obama and Education Secretary Arne Duncan to behave like dictators through a system of waivers with strings attached? I guess we don’t really have a need for Congress. Maybe Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) didn’t get the memo… Not long after members of the Congressional Black Caucus have made comments and speeches with the intent of fanning the flames of racial hatred, President Obama made a speech at the CBC’s recent annual awards dinner. Get ready for a rush of identity politics through the 2012 elections… Is Social Security a Ponzi scheme and how is the disability portion of it doing for us Americans?… California may have a new ballot proposal that would prohibit foreclosures – but what will it do to the mortgage industry?… California is also pushing “rights” for babysitters. Who doesn’t want a babysitter who takes a half hour lunch while they’re supposed to be watching their kids… If you want to know how to stay in America illegally for about 20 years after being told to leave the country, just as President Obama’s uncle – but you may have to wait until after his DUI problems get settled.
Secretaries vs Warren Buffett, Looming Government Shutdown and How GM is Screwing Taxpayers
President Barack Obama continues to beat the drum about Warren Buffett paying a lower tax rate than his secretary, but is it true? And contrary to King Barack’s new deficit reduction plan, as well as a plan by Yale Law School professors Bruce Ackerman and Anne Alstott, the solution is not to tax “the rich.”… We’re facing another possible shutdown of our government: in one corner Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) and in the other corner some House Republicans – all over FEMA and how to pay for the damage caused in Jolpin, Missouri from tornadoes and the east coast from Hurricane Irene… Tom Vilsack (Secretary of Agriculture) is planning with the National Restaurant Association to make us eat the kind of food our government wants us to eat… GM won’t be paying us back all the money that was taken from taxpayers in its bailout, but will that impact the bonuses and raises it gives to its UAW employees?… Eric Holder’s Department of Justice is making minority voters super-citizens… The Center for American Progress paints a picture of what America would be like with the Tea Party in charge… Former Vermont Governor and DNC head Howard Dean tells us that ObamaCare makes it certain that if small business employees like their healthcare plan, they can’t keep it… Do Latinos in Florida, Colorado and New Mexico support or oppose a voter ID laws?… Labor Secretary Hilda Solis continues to sign labor agreements with foreign countries to protect illegal immigrants in America.
Teachers Strike, Crony Capitalism and Wisconsin Discrimination
The teachers of Tacoma, WA decide to strike… More bad news for the Obama Administration on the “green jobs” and “green economy” poster child Solyndra – a picturesque example of crony capitalism… Will General William Shelton be the center of a new scandal?… President Barack Obama tells the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute he wants to “work my way around Congress…” The Center for American Progress spins new info from the Census Bureau… The students and faculty of the University of Wisconsin-Madison pull the race card on the Center for Equal Opportunity… President Obama pushes his new stimulus bill to the “Hispanic” voting bloc… And, new EPA rules kill more jobs – this time in Texas at Luminant.
Sept 11 Anniversary, Obama’s New “Jobs Bill” and Stoking the Flames of Racial Hatred
The 10th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks just passed… President Barack Obama’s campaign speech to a joint session of Congress touted his new stimulus bill: social security and medicare payroll tax cuts, the hiring tax credit, extending unemployment benefits, taxing “the rich,” an infrastructure bank for roads and bridges, more spending on school construction and teachers, money for police and firefighters and money to help distressed homeowners – among other ideas. What will actually happen if any of these proposed plans become law?… And, the Congressional Black Caucus is making its rounds stoking the flames of racism and racial hatred. Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN), Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL), Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) all joining in on the hatred-fest. Where will this actually take us?
No Jobs, Pelosi vs “The Rich,” Green Jobs Boondoggle and Alcoholic Truck Drivers
The August no jobs report doesn’t bode too well for President Barack Obama and his failing economic policies… The uncovering of the cover-up of Operation Fast & Furious continues… King Barack signs an executive order forcing racist hiring practices in the federal government… Former-Speak Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) attacks the rich… And Obama drone posts a video of herself online – the future of an America run by the Left… Obama’s Energy Department “invests” in green jobs at Solyndra at a loss of about half a billion dollars to taxpayers; Obama bundler, and oil tycoon, George Kaiser was an investor at Solyndra. Coincidence his company got the money?… Barack Obama Administration suing a trucking company for firing and employee after he admitted he has alcohol abuse problems. Maybe it’s time for a new reality show, “Drunk Truckers.”… Former Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle’s (D) study of ObamaCare’s impact on Wisconsin’s health care system. Did Obama keep his promises he made?… Illegal aliens pocketing billions in refundable tax credits from the IRS… Striking Verizon employees received unemployment benefits… AFL-CIO-affiliated labor leaders sing a different song after not inviting Republican politicians in Wausau, WI to a Labor Day parade… And, looks like there is now a civil rights warrior for – ugly people.
Hurricane Irene Hype and Pandering to the “Hispanic” Voting Bloc
Hurricane Irene dances up the east coast, but where are the missing cheerleaders, such as former Speaker Nancy Pelosi, for natural disasters? And what happened to all the media hype about it wiping 5-6 states off the map?… Queen Michelle Obama vacations again, at what cost to us, the taxpayers?… Barack Obama’s administration is doing all it can to try to get Latinos to vote for him in 2012 by vote-buying and behaving like a dictator. Maybe we should just disband Congress, since it won’t do what King Barack wants it to do – such as pass the DREAM Act, or Cap n Trade or whatever else he wants to do… Thankfully we have a federal government. Otherwise, immigrant goat herders in America would be screwed.
Obama’s Vacation, EPA Killing Jobs and the Virginia Earthquake
An earthquake of magnitude 5.8 hits Virginia and is felt all over the northeast and parts of the midwest, but what did the media NOT talk about in its coverage of the quake?… President Barack Obama took the first family on a vacation to Martha’s Vineyard, the land of the beautiful people. Now, consider where he went and under what circumstances as well… The EPA is planning on releasing job-killing rules on the acceptable level of ozone in any given region… See how much more difficult the city of Los Angeles makes it to run your own business in LA… Has there been any proof regarding Obama’s and Biden’s and Pelosi’s promises of “green jobs” and a “green economy.” A perfect example of how it’s working out is Seattle – just ask it’s Mayor, Mike McGinn.
Obama’s Next Housing Meltdown and Brainwashing Our Children
Despite decades of proof of what government involvement in the housing and mortgage industries results in, President Barack Obama’s current plan for both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac don’t make our future look too bright… A brief history of government involvement in the housing market from Steven Malanga… Henry Waxman, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Max Baucus are challenging Obama’s Administration by filing a brief on behalf of Medicaid recipients who want to sue the state of California, but are they aware of their hypocrisy when it came to their yes vote for ObamaCare… Kathleen Sebelius, the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, announced that women will get “free” contraception to the great applause of the Center for American Progress – but, does the decision make any sense?… Looks like the cost of ObamaCare will be way more than the CBO calculated – because the Democrats pushing ObamaCare told the CBO to calculate its costs that way… Looks like the U.S. Postal Service will default on the money it borrowed from taxpayers… Who would have thought that the U.S. Department of Education would team up with SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer to brainwash our schoolchildren? Lenin and Stalin would be so proud of the Obama Administration.
Deficits, Riots and Public Safety Racial Quotas
For the third straight year under President Barack Obama, our federal deficit has topped $1 Trillion, but whatever happened to the projections made in 2001, or 2007 or 2009? The solution to spending and all government programs is simple… Rioting all over England, and, yet, many people in America don’t notice the similarities between England and the U.S…. Government pensions promised, but not kept… New Haven, CT; Dayton, OH; New York, NY; The U.S. military; Fire Departments; Police Departments – all exist for the purposes of racial quotas… Maryland adds a new subject matter in which its high school students need to be indoctrinated. Our inconvenient former vice president Al Gore must be so happy.
Downgrade Blame and Benefits for Select Minorities
Standard & Poor’s downgrade’s America’s debt from AAA to AA+, kicking off the blame game… New jobs numbers are out, but are things getting any better?… President Obama recently signed a bill to raise the debt ceiling, a deal ignoring what’s really causing America’s credit rating to start dropping… Oil rigs – and the jobs, oil and revenues that come along with them – are leaving the Gulf of Mexico… Rationing of health care services continues in the U.K. – a look into America’s future… NYC’s mayor, Michael Bloomberg, joined George Soros in throwing in money to fund a series of racist and sexist programs – with NYC residents picking up more than half the tab… California’s governor Jerry Browne forces CA schools to include the contributions of people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender in social studies classes in CA’s schools… Governor Moonbeam also signed CA’s version of the DREAM Act for illegals seeking private financial aid for college…
Fair Share, Race Baiting Latinos and Diveristy Czars at our Universities
The debt ceiling debate was full of phrases like “fair share” – what exactly does that mean? How much should people pay in taxes?… What do the DREAM Act, Card Check, Net Neutrality, Cap n Trade and Amnesty for illegal immigrants have in common? Illegal immigrants continue “coming out” protests against laws enforcing our immigration laws, as Obama meets with La Raza to pander to the Latino (or, as the Left calls it, Hispanic) vote and continues to give them tens of millions of taxpayer dollars… Our CAFE standards have been raised to 54.5 miles per gallon – with consequences. A rule which carries the weight of a law passed by Congress (and signed by President Obama), but not actually passed by Congress nor signed by King Barack… No need to work, the FHA has at least tripled the amount of time you can stay in your house without paying a penny of your mortgage… San Francisco may soon force apartment building owners to rent apartments to ex-cons… And, California’s great UC University system keeps raising tuition and fees because its broke. Yet, UCSD just can’t teach its students without a “vice chancellor for equity, diversity and inclusion.”
Obama Facing Racism, Wasserman Shultz vs West and Obama’s False Claims About His Deceased Mother
The latest jobs report doesn’t looks so good, and when you add revisions from previous months, which lowered jobs created, it looks even worse… A new book, “A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother,” by a former NY Times reporter tells the truth about President Barack Obama’s mother. Obama campaigned for president and pushed ObamaCare by making us all believe that his mother’s health insurance company fought her over whether or not her medical bills would be paid because she had a preexisting medical condition. What really happened??? The song continues: opposition to Obama’s policies is because he’s black. Sheila Jackson Lee did a rendition of that song on the House floor, as did Professor Michael Eric Dyson of Georgetown on MSNBC… Representative Debbie Wasserman Shultz (D-FL) started a fight with Representative Allen West (R-FL)… And, data from our government shows us how people in America below the poverty line live. What kind of lifestyle to you think they lead???
Palin’s Emails, Future Problems and Starting a New Housing Crisis
Sarah Palin’s emails from when she was Governor of Alaska have been released. I’m sure that will solve our rising unemployment numbers, unsustainable debt levels and record deficits… How much will the taxpayers of America lose because of the Bush/Obama bailout of GM and Chrysler… Even the USA Today is pointing out how America is headed toward financial disaster – pointing out how much each of us are in the hole for what our politicians do… Who’s the biggest owner of US debt? Are we owned by China and Japan, or someone else?… Representative John Campbell (R-CA) ignores what Fannie Mae and Freddi Mac brought us and proposes that we repeat the housing meltdown… The remarkable pay level of federal employees is reaching unbelievable territory.
Anthony Weiner, Jim Crow Laws and Banning Prayer
New York Democrat Congressman Anthony’s Weiner now joins a long list of saints of our government: Senator Ted Kennedy, Governor Arnold Schwarzeneggar, President Bill Clinton, and the list goes on and on. Maybe these aren’t the right people to be telling us how we should live our lives… Michelle Obama joins in on the “this is how to live your life” parade… DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) displays her talent for lying (or, her inability to read and comprehend)… Never mind if the courts and its own charter says it can’t do it – President Barack Obama’s FCC is going full steam ahead with net neutrality regulations.. A federal judge in Texas bans a high school from praying or even using specific words at its graduation ceremony… And, the Obama Administration throws its tyrannical weight around when Indiana tries to end funding Planned Parenthood.
Using Scare Tactics Instead of Avoiding Bankruptcy and Giving Our Money to Tax Cheats
Instead of solving the decades-old problem with Medicare and Social Security leading us down a path toward bankruptcy, some politicians prefer to use scare tactics and “maintain the status quo” as President Barack Obama was so fond of saying just recently… It’s no wonder why America has lost its way – we don’t teach our students anything when it comes to civics. ‘Ever heard of separation of powers? If not, you’re not alone… Billions of dollars from the Fugazi Stimulus Bill have gone to companies that owe the IRS millions… And the solution to over $14 trillion in debt is: buy Chevy Volts for federal workers.
Another Bailout on its way, Pelosi’s Friends with Benefits and the Disaster AKA Government Programs
Two reasons for the world to end these past few days, but nothing happened… Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) battle it out over the nation’s debt ceiling… How much would you pay for a light bulb?… It must be nice to be a “friend of Pelosi’s” since that means you don’t have to abide by the laws the rest of us do… FEMA’s mess.. Medicare’s mess… Washington Posts’ stinging investigation of HUD’s billions of dollars of wasted taxpayer dollars… the proposed bailout of the US Postal Service by Senators Tom Carper (D-DE) and Susan Collins (R-ME)… And, while California’s economy tanks, it’s government has focused its priorities on bed sheets and trains.
Illegal Immigration, the Debt Limit and Jobs for Minorities
President Barack Obama traveled to El Paso, TX to give a speech on illegal immigration and our immigration system…. The Congressional Black Caucus met with Obama to get the president to focus on job creation in urban areas… Our nation’s debt limit is about maxed out – will they just keep spending money recklessly?… Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac continue to owe us more and more money… The US Postal Service loses more money… Latest data on the progressing failure of Massachusetts’ health care reform… And Obama’s Justice Department investigating why NCAA Football doesn’t have a playoff system.
Bin Laden Killed, Obama’s Soviet Planning, More New Taxes and Illegal Immigration
Navy SEALs find and kill Osama bin Laden. But, how did we find out where bin Laden was hiding?… NLRB vs Boeing: Just like the good old days in Communist Soviet Union, government tells businesses what they can and can’t do down to the smallest detail. Obama’s appointees at the National Labor Relations Board think they have the power to tell a business in which state they can open a new manufacturing plant. So much for “free markets” – which will be blamed if things don’t go swimmingly… The government’s new idea to bleed us dry is taxing us per mile we drive. Big Brother may soon be a reality… What’s the truth behind the “subsidies for Big Oil…” President Obama continues to meet with leaders of the “Hispanic Community” over immigration reform as Utah comes up with its own way to deal with their problem with illegal immigrant populations… May Day has come and gone – a Communist Holiday now celebrated in America by unions and amnesty advocates.
Immoral Oil Profiteering, Squelching Free Speech and Recruiting Latino Celebs to Rally the “Hispanic Vote”
“Big Oil” is constantly slammed for “immoral” profits – but who makes the most money off a gallon of gasoline? And, who are the fat-cats that get rich when an oil company’s stock goes up? All the while the EPA is preventing domestic energy exploration – this time in the Arctic Ocean off the Alaskan coast… Prince William and Kate Middleton get married… Donald Trump and President Barack Obama’s birth certificate… More theft uncovered in the City of Bell by its crooked politicians… A draft executive order by Don Juan de Kenya will squelch free speech… Deep blue Massachusetts tries to reduce government union power to prevent going broke… And, Obama holds meetings at White House to rally the “Hispanic vote” and to convince Latinos that this time he really means it when he says he will comprehensively reform immigration.
Taxing the Rich, Men’s Rights Groups, and Racist Diversity Requirements
Set aside the fact that a “rich” person’s money is their money, is there actually enough money to take from the rich to pay for our government’s out of control spending? The real money isn’t in the hands of “the rich…” The House Progressive Caucus released their “People’s Budget” – something that would bring a tear of joy to Karl Marx… Carrie Lukas (of the Independent Women’s Forum) points out that studies prove that men actually make less money than women – keeping all things equal. So, why all the cries of sexism and laws President Obama passes and stupid chants of “equal work means equal pay.” Was President Obama standing up for men’s rights?… California forces its students to learn about the contributions to the state and the nation of women, gays, African Americans, Mexican Americans, entrepreneurs, lesbians, trans-sexuals, European Americans etc. Whatever happened to being American without an adjective or modifier or hyphen?… As economist Walter Williams said, diversity is an elitist term used to give respectability to acts and policy that would otherwise be deemed as racism… Chicago schools ban children from bringing lunches from home and Boston’s Mayor bans sugary drinks from government property… The NLRB thinks it can tell private companies where they can and can’t open up new factories in America – and we wonder why jobs go overseas?… GM “investment” looking to cost taxpayers over $10 billion in losses… IRS gives prisoners and children first-time homebuyer tax credit… Obama fundraises – on our dime… As jobs flee the state of California, Governor Jerry Brown touts his new plan to require that California get 33% of its energy from renewable sources. Somehow he thinks raising the price of electricity will help California’s failing economy.
Shutdown Avoided But Nonsense Continues, ObamaCare’s Bailout of UAW and Paul Ryan’s Budget
A “shutdown” of the federal government was averted by a deal that seems to make President Barack Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) happy – which means that we, the taxpayers, got screwed while they make it look like they’re doing us a favor. What exactly were the results of these negotiations? Also, have you heard of the war and mass killings of women in the United States? Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) and Louis Slaughter (D-NY) enlighten our ignorance… The Left stands for higher taxes, but when they have the chance to pay more of their income in the form of taxes to the government, do their actions match their words? Massachusetts’ State Department of Revenue tells us… Who’s the bigger winner from ObamaCare? Not hard to figure out: government unions, private sector unions, and big businesses that supported the president’s health care deform bill. A bill which is now becoming another bailout for both GM and Chrysler… The snowplow operators union (a government union) in Wisconsin filed a grievance against Racine, WI to get paid days off – after a snowstorm. Maybe they’re confused as to why they were hired in the first place… And, Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) gives us his plan and vision for America’s future.
Government Unions Using Mafia Tactics, “Extreme” Propaganda and the End of Charitable Giving
Government unions in Wisconsin have resorted to what they do best: using mafia tactics to get their way. Somehow they think boycotting businesses helps the “middle class”… Unions rally in Downtown Los Angeles, as a CalPERS scandal unfolds… A new Social Security rule (upheld by an activist judge) will take away all Social Security benefits from some people and force them to pay back any Social Security checks they’ve received… Senators Harry Reid (D-NV), Tom Harkin (D-IA), Bernie Sanders (S-VT) Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Al Franken (D-MN) hold a “Hands Off Social Security Rally”… Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) spills the beans that calling spending cuts and politicians “extreme” is nothing more than a coordinated propaganda effort on behalf of Senate Democrats… And, Barack Obama’s 2012 budget shoves us down the path to the end of charitable giving and, thus, the end of a civil society.
At War With Libya and Corporations Not Paying Their Fair Share
President Barack Obama listens to the U.N. and sends in American troops to bomb Libya. What have Hillary Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden said about the way Obama chose to do it… Some corporations make billions in profits, yet pay no taxes… Natural disasters are good for the economy, at least according to Paul Krugman of the New York Times and Nancy Pelosi… Budget deficits as far as the eye can see… And how the bank bailouts will turn out for us taxpayers – will we turn a profit?
Affirmative Action Insanity, More Children Left Behind and Illegals Voting in New Mexico
People who support Affirmative Action have gone too far. The Obama Administration, through Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department, are using the threatening power of the federal government to force local police and fire departments to hire unqualified police and firefighters. The same is happening in our military… President Barack Obama wants to reauthorize the failed No Child Left Behind program. Maybe he thinks that although throwing money at a problem has done no good the past hundred years, but somehow it’ll be different now that he’s the one throwing the money. Then again, he is the one we’ve been waiting for… With tight election races all over America, something needs to be done to put an end to voter fraud – including non-citizens and illegal immigrants voting in our elections. Maybe politicians should consider one thing: if an illegal can’t come in the country, they’ll never be able to vote illegally… Should government funding for NPR continue?
Pro Choice When It Comes To Abortions, But Not Light Bulbs
How is it that many politicians are pro choice when it comes to abortion, but anti choice when it comes to light bulbs or a bunch of other consumer items we buy or use on a daily basis? Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky challenges our Department of Energy’s stance on light bulbs, toilets and more… We give corporations massive tax loopholes, then we complain that the corporate tax rate needs to be higher (even though it’s the second highest in the world – soon to the the highest)… Would you pay 80 cents for a product that never sells for more than a dime? No one is stupid enough to do that – with the exception of your Uncle, Sam… Another continuing resolution budget resolution passes to fund the government another three weeks… President Lyndon B. Johnson’s war on poverty has already cost us over $16 trillion, and now costs us about $1 trillion per year – all for a massive set of programs that are a complete failure. Who else would do this other than someone stupid enough to pay 80 cents for a dime?… Miami recalls their Republican, tax-increasing, government-worker-pay-raising during a recession Mayor by a landslide… And, the bank bailout panel says the new financial reform bill which supposedly ended bailouts forever actually makes sure that bailouts are guaranteed to happen again in the future.
Women Still Earning Less than Men, Brainwashing Students in Wisconsin and Increasing Gas Prices
The White House, President Obama’s senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, Universities, “women’s rights” groups, etc., continue to beat the drum how women make less than men do in the workplace. A recent article in the Wall Street Journal discussed this info – from a White House report. What a sexist country we live in where women earn 75 cents for every dollar a man makes. Does the article, or the White House study, have any sense of logic or reality when they talk about numbers like this? Or is it just more victim-hood promotion by the Left?… Wisconsin’s Republican Governor Scott Walker responds to Obama’s attacks on Walker’s supposed oppression of rights of public unions… Wisconsin (under recently-defeated Democrat Governor Jim Doyle) passed a law in 2009, when the Democrats controlled both housing of the state legislature and the governorship, requiring the brainwashing of their schoolchildren of the virtues and greatness of the labor movement and the Progressive movement. I thought that only happened in communist countries like the Soviet Union. Funny how the media has been largely silent on this law – which passed in 2009… The unsustainable pay and benefits of Wisconsin’s public employees exposed… ErrorFM’s Barry Funkhouser joins me to talk about rapidly rising gas prices, California’s budget problems under new/old Governor Jerry Brown and California’s job-killing push for renewable energy standards.
Willfully Wasting Our Money, Crony Green Economics and GM’s Fugazi Success
Politicians love to pass laws that create new programs to solve society’s problems (whether the problems are real, perceived, or even non-existent). But they don’t bother to see if that program already exists, or possibly exists 47 times, with 44 of them overlapping with at least one other program doing the same thing. A new GAO study shows how our money is being wasted. Yet, the Democrats in Congress, along with President Obama, say there is no spending we can cut – absolutely every penny is necessary or the sky will fall. And Republicans who are supposedly fiscally conservative act as if they never knew any of this… Bankruptcy for America is a guarantee if Social Security and Medicare are not reformed… One of Obama’s and Biden’s chosen “green jobs” initiatives is Solyndra, Inc. in northern California. Other than stealing money from us to give to their cronies, they’ve chosen cronies who can’t even turn a profit or create a job with hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars now squandered for nothing. But, it’s not their money, so why should they care?… GM may have returned to profitability, but with all of the gimmes and special deals from the dunces in DC, its’ almost impossible not to… The United Federation of Teachers in New York City proves, once again, that the teachers unions represent their members, not students, as they waste taxpayer dollars on lavish parties and galas… Not only did former Senator Ted Kennedy prove that he’s an accomplished killer of women in Chappaquiddick, but now it comes to light that he was also a connoisseur of brothels in Chile… What’s your weapon of choice: hand gun, or bean bag?… Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner says one thing, but desires another when he talks about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mace… The new Wyden-Brown Bill offers flexibility if your example of flexible is an iron pipe…
Arizona Clamps Down on Illegal Immigration, “Racist” Voter ID Laws and Government Wasting our Money
Cities in California have been using money intended for redevelopment to pay the salaries of their employees and to provide core services – everything but what the state-provided funds were supposed to be used for. How many other government programs serve no other purpose than to waste (often fraudulently) our money? How about the 21st Century Community Learning Centers program? Or Head Start? We have programs that are proven failures, deemed so by our own government that runs those programs, yet their solution is to continue to increase funding… President Obama asks businesses to start hiring again, confusing private enterprise with charities and government… Improper foreclosures may soon lead to billions of more dollars going to irresponsible borrowers, with the responsible taxpayers paying for it… Due to intentionally cumbersome collectively-bargained union rules for laying off teachers without tenure, 75 fired teachers will be hired back and paid $7.5 million for work they never performed in the time they were out of work. Former D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty’s school chancellor Michelle Rhee fired bad teachers to help the schoolchildren. But, in the end, the public unions win whereas the students and taxpayers lose… Illinois wants to borrow billions to help fund unfunded pension liabilities – as if piling debt on top of debt is the solution to their problems… Senators Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) fight to get MLB to ban smokeless tobacco while Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) wants the state of Nevada to ban brothels and while citizens of San Francisco want to ban circumcisions… Arizona’s state Senate is on its way to passing more legislation to handle its illegal immigration problem… Wisconsin wants people to present ID when voting…
Public Union Tyranny, Obama’s Dictatorial Stance on DOMA and Rising Prices at the Pump
Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana and other states are fighting the tyranny imposed by public unions who have a far-too-cozy relationship with their bought and paid for politicians that for years have been giving them unsustainable compensation and retirement packages – with every penny to pay for these being stolen from the taxpayers. Republican Governors Scott Walker, John Kasich, Mitch Daniels and Chris Christie lead the fight against the unions, who have the support of Democrats, President Barack Obama, Senator Bernie Sanders, the Communist Party USA, the Socialist Workers Party and the Democratic Socialists of America. The fight continues to heat up and the Democrats from Indiana and Wisconsin are still hiding in Illinois… Soaring prices at the pump in America have been accelerated with turmoil in Libya, Egypt and elsewhere in the Middle East. With drilling bans in place, prices will continue to rise… President Obama decided he no longer wants to defend DOMA. Leaders of countries who decide themselves which laws they will enforce/defend are called dictators. This just adds to the list of unconstitutional things Obama is doing since he’s been in office… Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac ask for billions more in bailout money – from our pockets… The 38th thwarted terrorist attack since 9/11… Idaho’s school superintendent gets his car vandalized by public union members – who also decide to give his mother a visit at her house.
Obama Releases his Disastrous 2012 Budget and the TSA Aims to Unionize
President Barack Obama released his 2012 Budget proposal – one which even his own Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner, said puts us on an unsustainable path. What exactly is in this $3.73 trillion budget? Does it tackle Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid? How will it impact future debt levels?… As if traveling wasn’t annoying enough, the Obama Administration wants the TSA to unionize… Michelle Obama continues her crusade against obesity by promoting the benefits of breastfeeding (never mind the more than $14 trillion in debt – it’s a scarcity of breastfeeding that’s bringing the country down).
Wisconsin Battles its Public Unions and Rep. Issa Digs into all Government Friends of Angelo
The public unions of the state of Wisconsin are in a battle with their newly-elected Republican Governor, Scott Walker, over the power the public unions will have within the state. Namely, will the 300,000 public union members continue to control the state’s 5.5 million residents, or will the power actually go back to the people. As Wisconsin struggles to balance its budget, reducing the influence, power and cost of public unions is a must. But will it even happen as Democrat State Senators fled the state to prevent a required quorum for fiscal bills… A proposed bill in Arizona would have hospitals check the legal status of its patients… Representative Darrel Issa (R-CA) subpoenas the records of Countrywide to see which federal, state and local policymakers were getting sweetheart mortgage loans from the disgraced and criminal lender. Issa also wants the names of staffers and spouses and employees of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac who received sweetheart deals as well. Under Nancy Pelosi’s leadership, the House failed to do its job on this front. But with Issa, over two years after the meltdown, our government is starting to truly investigate who contributed to the housing and subsequent financial meltdowns of 2008. There are a lot of friends of Angelo that need to be discovered.
Federal Funding of Abortions, Unions Fighting Unions and California’s Foreclosure Prevention Plan
Setting aside Pro Choice vs Pro Life, should your tax dollars be used to fund abortions? That debate is heating up in DC… In states such as California, unions are at each others throats over new “green energy” projects – what’s the reason?… California has a new plan to stop foreclosures… President Barack Obama proposed cutting subsidies for heating oil to “the poor…” and, the Obama Administration has been talking about plans regarding what to do with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
ObamaCare the Job-Killer, Government Waste and Arizona Sues the US Government
A perfect example of the kind of people that are trying to make decisions on how all of us should live: Representative Chris Lee (R-NY), a married man, took a shirtless photo of himself to flirt with women online while claiming he was single and a lobbyist (I guess he figured a lobbyist isn’t so bad when compared to a politician)… CBO director Doug Elmendorf clearly stated that ObamaCare is a jobs-killing bill, as opposed to waht President Barack Obama and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claim… Whitehouse.gov’s recent weekly address touts the benefits of a green economy which sound great – until you think for half a nanosecond… The IRS is yet another proven failed government program, even which all it has to do is give money to “the poor…” Why is our government involved in volunteering, in such programs as AmeriCorps… the State of Arizona and its Governor (Jan Brewer – R, of illegal immigration bill SB1070 fame) sued the federal government for not doing one of its only duties – protect the border… and, we can all rest well at night knowing that the people at barber shops and salons that shampoo your hair have licenses and were properly trained in such critical and difficult tasks as evenly distributing conditioner. Do you know how many professions in your state require licenses? You’d be shocked if you saw the list.
Gas Prices Keep Climbing, AP’s Bias and Stupidity, Sanctuary States and Cutting Federal Spending
When gas prices went up under President Bush, it was his fault. Why are the media silent now as gas prices keep climbing under Obama’s watch? The mainstream media should at least pretend not to be homers for Obama and the American left – such as, at the very least, pointing out that the Obama/Salazar drilling moratoriums aren’t going to make gas cheaper. But, this just falls in line with the bias and stupidity we get from most media outlets – some of which tell us the Senate has a Speaker… New Mexico’s new governor (Susana Martinez – R) announced that her state will no longer be a sanctuary state for illegal immigration – if you make something more enticing, more people will do it… After a bloodbath at the 2010 midterm elections, all the Republicans in the house can come up with for now are cuts amounting to less than $100 billion – in a budget that is approaching $4 trillion (over $5 trillion if you include tax expenditures). Someone let them know that it may be better than increasing spending, but it won’t make a dent in our massive deficits and debt… When she’s not planting arugula in the White House garden or telling people they’re fat, she wants DC to spend billions more on programs to get businesses to encourage volunteerism. Will America fall apart if this program goes away? One things for sure: dropping it saves billions of dollars.
ObamaCare Unconstitutional, Fannie/Freddie’s Legal Bills and Ending Teacher Tenure
A victory for liberty – senior US district judge Roger Vinson ruled ObamaCare unconstitutional. Since when can the dunces in DC force us to buy a product or service?… The gifts that keep on giving: Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Not only have they cost tax payers about $150 billion in bailouts so far, we’re also on the hook for hundreds of millions of dollars for legal bills for the former execs (like Franklin Raines) who should be in prison for the books to steal money from taxpayers. The Enron guys and Bernie Madoff are kicking themselves for not doing what they did in government positions… President Obama praised Bruce Randolph School in Denver for its achievements in education – but they accomplished that by firing almost all of its teachers and breaking loose from the shackles of teachers unions. Which comes at a time where many governors are trying to end or change tenure for teachers so that our children don’t get stuck being taught by horrible teachers who have the protection (and hundreds of millions of dollars of backing) of the NEA and AFT (among other teachers unions).
Civil Rights in Ohio, NACA, State Bankruptcies and CLEAN Contracts
Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. dreamed of an America where people would be judged by the content of their character, not by the color of their skin. Ohio’s new Republican Governor, John Kasich, tried exactly that – but was slammed by so-called civil rights groups. It isn’t sexist nor racist nor intolerant etc. to select people based on their abilities to do the job at hand – something economist Walter Williams clearly understands and articulates… The federal govt is still involved in housing, and it’s NACA (Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America) is back to using the same tactics and policies that created the housing bubble and meltdown in the first place. Forcing banks to do what the govt wants didn’t work before, so don’t expect different results now… If public unions won’t budge with respect to their contracts, states need to be able to file for bankruptcy. A federal bailout of states is just about the worst idea I’ve ever heard… The Center for American Progress is a strong supporter of CLEAN contracts – but what are they and do they make any sense?
Teaching College Kids to be Mooches, Repealing ObamaCare and Raising the Debt Ceiling
If you look at the stupid projects our government wastes money on, you’d think Sen Tom Coburn’s “Wastebook 2010″ was written by The Onion or the editors of Mad Magazine… Repealing Obama’s health care deform bill is one this we need to do to push back the day that the Greek flag flies over D.C…. What’s the reason people should go to college: to be educated and taught how to think so that we are prepared to be productive people in society or to be taught how to be a mooch and collect welfare benefits while in college? Which option your college chooses depends on which college you go to… The dunces in D.C. have already dug a hole of over $14 trillion in debt, and now the debate is how much deeper are we gonna dig that hole. How about filling it up instead?
Using Gabrielle Giffords’ Attempted Assassination to Violate Our Rights and Clamping Down on Public Unions
Jared Loughner’s attempted assassination of Representative Gabrielle Giffords (Democrat from Arizona) has, predictably, turned into an opportunity for the dunces in D.C. to take away more of our freedoms – from controlling speech to gun control. And let’s not forget the immediate attacks from the left that, somehow, this is all to blame on conservatives and, especially, Sarah Palin… The future of state budgets look as bright as dead light bulbs, and to try to get control over massive spending, Republican (such as John Kasich of Ohio) and Democrat (such as Andrew Cuomo of New York) governors are making efforts to avoid fiscal disasters. Many Republican governors vow to reduce the influence and power of public employee unions which have been ballooning state spending.
Tax Rate Extension Deal Reached and the Happiest and Most Depressing Jobs
It’s strange when two professions which look almost identical on paper end up with different reviews – one makes the happiest jobs list and one makes the most depressing… President Obama, Democrats and Republicans came together to pass a compromise bill on the expiring Bush tax rates. Who got the better end of the deal between the Dems and the Repubs, and how will us citizens fair?
Pending State Pension Crises and the Next Housing Meltdown is Already on its Way – Compliments of DC
Even the New York Times is now warning of the massive unfunded pension liabilities that many states are facing. Once this happens, who will be on the hook? Is it gonna be us, the taxpayers, again, like it was during the bank bailouts?… Politicians love to abuse the system of free cars and all the other benefits that come with being politicians. I don’t think they should have that to begin with. At least Congressional aides don’t get bonuses after being part of record-breaking budget deficits – oh, wait, they do. That’s how they get punished for their failure as our leaders/masters… More and more info is coming out to show how President Barack Obama’s civilian federal workforce “pay freeze” isn’t a freeze at all… Peter Wallison and Ed Pinto of the American Enterprise Institute show that our government is doing the exact same thing it did to create the recent housing meltdown… And, Attorney General Eric Holder is cracking down on Ponzi schemes. Is he going after the two biggest Ponzi schemes the world has ever scene?
America’s First Experiment with Communism and Green Economies
America tested Karl Marx’s theories long before he was even born, and they were a proven failure – in the 1600′s in Plymouth. So, why is our government moving more and more in that direction, when we’ve not only seen it fail here, but have also seen it fail all over the rest of the world… Al Gore admits that part of his environazi stance was to get re-elected even though (as he also admits) his stance was bad policy… One year has passed since the leaked emails from East Anglia University’s Climate Research Unit, and it seems as though governments around the world continue to pursue what seems more as a religious ideology and less and less scientific. But don’t count on America’s leftist media to tell you this – they were part of the cover-up… California is facing fiscal disaster in its near future and has been battling double-digit unemployment for about 2 years. What’s its solution to its economic woes? Raise electricity rates and imitate failure – good luck Moon Beam… Maybe Governor Moon Beam is looking to President Obama to guide him to disaster as Obama’s solution to energy independence is to drill less and less at home and prevent drilling and exploration in more and more areas.
Federal Worker Wage Freeze, Fat Tax, School Nutrition and High Speed Rail
After raises throughout the whole meltdown and recession, we’re now supposed to think that federal government workers are “sharing the sacrifice” with us because President Barack Obama proposes a wage freeze for them? Does he think we’re that stupid – apparently so… Since it is December, disgust for the word “Christmas” and for anything that even remotely resembles Christmas is making headlines again… Why can’t our government just let us eat what we want to eat, and let parents be parents, instead of wasting billions upon billions of our money to tell us how to live our own lives. I’m sure America won’t see its downfall because of unregulated bake sales at schools… Somehow high-speed rail has been only slightly successful in 1-2 places in the world, but Obama’s administration thinks it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. They should notice that if it has failed in more densely populated areas that it probably will be another money pit our government has created.
Incentivizing Illegal Immigration, Budget Crises and Not-So-Free Speech
It takes less than half a brain cell to realize that if you want more of something, incentivize it. So what do you think will happen if President Barack Obama provides a pathway to citizenship for over two million illegal immigrants who came to America “young” and either completed a couple years of college or served in the military (the DREAM Act) and the Supreme Court of California’s determination that illegal immigrants in California can be charged less than half the price charged to American citizens (who live outside of California) to attend California’s public colleges? Rewarding a behavior gets you more of that behavior, and illegal immigration will drastically worsen if we continue on this path… California’s budget is in deep trouble again – it’s time to order your CD of “Speak Greek in less than 30 Days.” And, yet, University of California students violently protested proposed tuition fee hikes. With a $26 billion budget shortfall and freebies to illegal immigrants did they think the cost of their public education would decrease? The UC system may want to make basic addition and subtraction a requirement for incoming students… And, Senator Jay Rockefeller has a “bug” in him that wants to shut down Fox News and MSNBC – clearly Freedom of Speech means nothing to parts of our ruling/privileged class.
Federal Government Salaries, Public Housing and BP Gulf Oil Spill Investigations
We in the private sector lost millions of jobs, but the “public servants” in our federal government not only didn’t lose jobs, but they also received raises every year of this recession/downturn. The number of federal workers making over $150k per year has doubled in Obama’s less than two years in office – just one of the benefits of being part of America’s privileged class… How long will our government waste our hard-earned tax dollars on stupid housing ideas at HUD before it realizes those ideas are all failures… The Obama Administration is being called out for the lies it spread (with the help of its ally – mainstream media) about the BP Gulf oil spill – as are its recommendations for a moratorium on drilling.
Massive Public Union Pensions, Campaign Money and Charity
Infomercials use lines like “how would you like to make tens of thousands a dollars a month, doing nothing?” This best describes government pensions in many of our states. California alone has well over 10,000 retired government employees pulling in over $100,000 per year – and that does NOT include their overly-generous health benefits. This is leading to the death spiral of California (with New York, New Jersey and Illinois close behind). And where is this money that is stolen from us and given to public employees being used? Answer: political campaigning… When our government isn’t buying votes this way, they try to by the vote of retired people by sending them checks in the mail for cost of living adjustments that never happened… Considering the fact that Americans donate more than $300 billion and over 8 billion hours to charities and charitable activities, why are we constantly told that without government, society would fall apart. The truth is the polar opposite – it’s government that is making our society fall apart… Congressman Barney Frank helped bail out the banks, promised not to take money from them, but then took money anyway – and he’s another example of people who want to tell us how to live our lives?
NPR Fires Juan Williams, More Bailout Money for Fannie/Freddie, and more Taxpayer Dollars Wasted
Taxpayer-funded NPR fires Juan Williams, claiming bigotry, but the real reason is one they will not admit to… Taxpayers continue to be on the hook for bad mortgages through another federal program – Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (NACA). How long before that bubble bursts and those of us that were responsible get stuck with the bill?… President Obama set aside billions of dollars to “weatherize” homes – an idea that’s turned out to be not only wasteful and stupid, but also loaded with fraud and abuse – all at taxpayer expense, again… Does charging you for your “free” checking account sound like a consumer protection? The answer is “yes” if you support Barack Obama… The taxpayer bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will cost us more money, possibly double what it’s cost us so far, but I still can’t figure out why I can’t afford to buy a house while being forced to help other people pay for their mortgages… Tennessee Governor Philip Bredesen (D) explains in the Wall Street Journal how ObamaCare does everything it can to incentivize even governors to drop health insurance coverage for their employees.
The Party may be Over, City Pensions Funds Drained, the Latino Vote and Not Letting the Military Vote
The party may well be over, especially if we don’t do anything soon to stop to profligate spending in D.C. We can’t continue to borrow forever – sooner or later the people who loaned the USA money are going to want that money paid back – and not in more treasury bills… If anyone in America deserves the right to vote, you would think it’s the men and women of our military – but that’s not the case in many states, especially Illinois and New York… The privileged class is killing society. We are on the hook for trillions of dollars for public union pensions, and a new study on city and county worker unfunded pension liabilities shows just how close we are to becoming like Greece… And, President Barack Obama was supposed to be the great unifier, but he’s done nothing more than be the most divisive president I can remember. One of “his” think tank’s plan to get the “Latino vote” shows how Obama and his Leftists/Progressives want society divided.
Why the People of D.C. Deserve to Rot and California’s Proposition to Legalize Marijuana
Jerry Brown’s campaign office called Meg Whitman a whore, and Brown agreed. Was Brown right?… I used to feel sorry for people who don’t live in the greatest neighborhoods and whose futures were hampered by failing public schools, but the people of Washington D.C. are getting what they deserve, after giving Mayor Adrian Fenty the boot and voting for Barack Obama who yanked their Opportunity Scholarship Program… California has a proposition on its ballot for the November 2nd mid-term elections to legalize marijuana. But, the proposition does more than just that. This completely changes the impact of the bill and my vote… And, I’ll tell you why it’s important for all of Bush’s tax cut to expire – temporarily.
King Barack and Education Dollars Wasted
All hail our glorious dictator – King Barack! The Los Angeles Times spells out the plans for the Obama Administration – leaving Congress out of it… When you hear people say we need to “invest in education,” what comes to mind? A mariachi program? Maybe a program fighting Goth culture? Well, that’s where our money is going – all exposed by Senator Tom Coburn in his recent “School House Pork” report… The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities tries its spin on how Social Security debt isn’t really debt… And, does moving toward an economy based on “green jobs” have any basis on reality?
Side Effects of ObamaCare and New Solar Panels for the White House
Another politician is off to prison – and we’re supposed to trust them with our money and and, now, our healthcare?… How many times will our government send money to dead people before we figure out they can’t do anything right?… What are the side effects of ObamaCare?… What does California’s Proposition 23 mean for America?… And, find out which states’ bonds are considered more risky than Mexico’s.
Unknown Fate of Bush’s Tax Cuts and YMCA Ideas for DC
Congress went home before resolving whether or not to extend all or some of Bush’s tax cuts – right before an election… What do you think about legalizing polygamy? How about only allowing people who pay federal income taxes the privilege to vote? That and some other interesting ideas from YMCA’s Youth and Government.
The GOP’s Pledge to America and Obama’s Response
The Republicans of the House of Representatives released their “Pledge to America.” Does the Pledge have any good ideas? Or is it like most political promises – empty? President Barack Obama gave us his answer in his weekly address from the White House. So, what to the people who are trying to rule our lives have in store for our futures?
Buying Votes Like FDR, Krugman’s Dementia and Six Month Anniversary of ObamaCare
Obama’s Fugazi Stimulus Bill is being used just as predicted here on www.TiltedTalk.com – to buy votes like FDR did with all of his New Deal spending. So, our own government is stealing our money (and the money of those yet to be born) to run their political campaigns… More goodies for unions from the Democrat Party – although you’d never know it if you just paid attention to the mainstream media which claims that only Republicans have special interests they cater to… Paul Krugman’s recent Op-Ed in the NY Times is worthless, Jedi-mind-trick, Marxist class warfare garbage which only drones could believe… And, how is ObamaCare looking after its first six months?
Obama’s Aunt, a Renewables Energy Bill and Attacking Tea Partiers
President Obama’s illegal immigrant aunt, who continues to live off government assistance, is symbolic of everything that’s wrong with America and why the path we’re headed down will make us all worse off… The new pig with lipstick is a Renewables Energy bill being pushed by a group of Democrat and Republican Senators. Whatever name they give it, it’ll be just like Cap N Trade – a disastrous effect to our economy, all for zero impact on climate… Rumor is that Democrats will use the Tea Party movement against the Republicans, thinking that bashing normal Americans is a good idea.
Mob Government, the DREAM Act and Cannonizing Environazis
Goodfellas comes to the White House – get a beat-down if you don’t do as you’re told. Courtesy of the unelected Czarina Kathleen Sebelius and our self-annointed mob boss Barack Obama… Senator Harry Reid is trying to use the current military spending bill to win re-election – by pandering to supporters of Amnesty with the DREAM Act… And, a $500 million school in LA is named after environazis Al Gore and Rachel Carson. Ignoring the fact that our inconvenient former Vice President’s alarmist movie has been proven to be full of lies and that Rachel Carson is responsible for more dead people that Mao, Hitler and Stalin combined.
Congressional Brothel and Bush’s Tax Cuts
Tune in to hear audio of Congressman Eleanor Holmes Norton calling a lobbyist to ask for money – as she stresses how high her ranking is and how much government money (our money) she has at her disposal. And these pieces of garbage want to tell us how to live our lives??? With failing schools and substandard conditions, do you ever feel bad for the residents of D.C.? If you do, you shouldn’t. They paved their road to misery and thus deserve it. They proved this by ousting their current mayor… And is raising taxes on our “rich” a good idea?
Human Rights in the USA and Illegal Immigration Enforcement Neglect
If you think of a country with a terrible human rights record, do you think of the USA? I don’t, but Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton do. For some reason, they love to bash the greatest country in the world – and the do it to the piece of garbage known as the U.N… Our current federal administration loves to talk about rule of law, but then ignore almost every law on the books when it comes to immigration – unless you’re a state like Arizona that is trying to enforce federal law which Obama’s ICE won’t do.
Remembering 9/11 with a Marine and More “Solutions” to Fix Our Economy
It’s the 9-year anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks on the United States, yet lots of people, especially some politicians, seem to be quickly forgetting they ever happened… And President Barack Obama plans yet another stimulus bill – reminding me of the definition of insanity.
Subsidizing Living in the way of Danger, Fannie Mae’s Future Bailout and Intel’s CEO Explains Why Businesses Leave the USA
Why do we keep paying people to live in the way of danger? If you live in a flood zone – get flood insurance! Don’t come crying for help when, surprise, a flood hits your hometown… Our government has planted the seeds for the next housing meltdown… And, Intel’s CEO (Paul Otellini) explains why president Barack Obama’s policies drive businesses out of America.
Ground Zero Mosque, Hiring Murderers and Anchor Babies
The dunces in DC now say that you just might be racist if you don’t want to hire someone because they happened to have been convicted of homicide. This is what you get when you live in an administrative state… The Ground Zero mosque plows ahead – but should one be built there… And, talk of birthright citizenship for children of illegal aliens heats up.
Another Bailout for Our Privileged Class And Food Czars
Our Congress and President Barack Obama passed another bailout of teachers and public union employees – the main parts of America’s privileged class. Do the bailouts make any sense? Did education need more funding? Do you like the fact that money is being stolen from all of us, for the benefit of only a few select Americans? And with multiple bailouts of Medicaid in the past decade, don’t you think that something needs to be done about it other than just continuing more and more bailouts which are starting to look more like an allowance parents give their kids? And… the matriarch of our ruling family wants to tell schools what food they can and can’t serve their students, which is just the first step in telling every single American what they can and can’t eat – just ask Justice Elena Kagan.
John Kerry’s Hypocrisy, Central Planning and the DREAM Act
Senator John Kerry is in the lead for being the biggest hypocrite in Congress – voting every time to raise our taxes but avoiding sales tax on his $7 million yacht… Van Jones, an avowed Communist and President Barack Obama’s former “green jobs czar,” has a novel idea for the left: soak the rich and businesses… Central planning has failed everywhere when tried, and now it’s showing massive signs of failure in Cuba… And, since when do we bend over backwards for people who break our laws?
Countrywide’s “Special Relationship” with Congress & Fannie/Freddie and Communist Journolist
While we, the US taxpayers, are stuck with massive debt from the housing and financial meltdown, people in our government (who are supposed to “serve the people”) got sweetheart deals from mortgage companies that were at the root of the disaster – deals that none of us schlubs could even dream of getting. Same thing happened in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the root cause of the meltdowns) – yet, do you hear of anyone getting fired or paying any price for what they did?… Plus, if you’ve ever been to a Communist country, you really wouldn’t notice much difference between our media and their media. Read almost and newspaper or watch almost any TV channel and you’ll think that their instructions come from the White House.
Get Ready for Another Financial Meltdown
If you liked this past housing and financial industry meltdown, you’ll love the next one because the recently passed financial deform bill does nothing to prevent another meltdown. The only thing the bill does is give regulators (who were asleep during the recent meltdown but somehow kept their jobs) more power, give other parts of the gov’t more power, and create an unconstitutional quota system under the name of “diversity.” What a bunch of idiots. And the bill is named after Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT) and Representative Barney Frank (D-MA) – the two biggest crooks in US history. They make Bernie Madoff look like he stole a candy bar. Next time Barack Obama or Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid tell you what progress looks like, ask them that when the banks get bailed out again – all on our dime – because that’s what this progress will look like.
The Costs of Illegal Immigration and CBPP’s Blind Support of the Left
A recent study points out the costs of illegal immigration to the U.S… Steven Greenhut points out how public unions are killing the goose that lays the golden eggs… And, the Progressive Center on Budget and Policy Priorities testified in front of Congress with respect to the unsustainable path of our budget – but did they come up with any decent ideas?
The Origins of Obama’s Political Philosophy and the Recess Appointment of Donald Berwick
There’s an old political philosophy the Obama administration is following to a tee. And it is clear they are doing this not only by their actions, but also by the desires his administration has indicated in speeches by: the recent recess appointment to head the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Dr. Donald Berwick; Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; President Barack Obama himself; Senator Max Baucus of Montana; and Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan – just to name a few. What is that philosophy that we are progressing towards and is that the kind of society you want to live in?
Obama’s Illegal Immigration Speech and Forced Unionization
President Barack Obama recently made a speech on illegal immigration – find out what he thinks and what solutions he has… And, why do some people in our government want to force certain people to join unions? I didn’t realize our national anthem’s ending was changed to “the land of the union members and the home of tyranny…”
Can the Government Tell You What to Eat and Social Security’s Slow Death
Do you think our government can tell you what to eat? If not, think again. Barack Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Elene Kagan, would not say “no” when asked if the dunces in D.C. can tell us that we have to eat three fruits and three vegetables a day. Kagan will serve as a rubber stamp to every dictatorial bill Obama rams through Congress. I guess this is what change looks like… If you like to hear nonsense, listen to what the Center for American Progress thinks about health care deform bill the Democrats forced on us… And, Social Security is dying, and bankrupting the United States, yet if you say we need to make some changes, you’re crucified. I guess that means we’ll take what’s behind door number two – Greece’s situation.
The Politics of the BP Oil Spill with Joe Barton’s Apology and More False Promises Uncovered in ObamaCare
Representative Joe Barton was slammed by both Democrats and Republicans for his “apology” to BP. But, what exactly did he say and who’s side is he on?… We were repeatedly promised by King Barack that if we like our insurance plan we can keep it, “period” – is there any truth to that?
Touting the Failed “Stimulus” Bill, Border Security and Birthright Citizenship
The fugazi Stimulus Bill was passed well over a year ago to provide a “jolt” to the U.S. economy, yet the bulk of the money is being spent this year – especially this summer as President Obama and VP Joe Biden travel across America to tell us how great it is. This is exactly what FDR did during the Great Depression… Senator Jon Kyl claims Obama’s Administration is holding border security hostage until Republicans agree to “comprehensive immigration reform.” And, will a law soon pass to put an end to the practice that if you enter the country illegally and have a child, that child is given American citizenship?
Spending Ourselves to Disaster and Fraudulent ObamaCare Accounting
President Barack Obama, and everyone in Congress who voted for ObamaCare, just proved to us they were lying when they told us we’d be reducing the deficit with the passage of ObamaCare… As a country we are headed toward financial disaster – according to everyone. What’s our government’s solution? Add more and more to the debt – at a record pace.
DC Elitists Power Grabs, Altering Union Strangleholds and Incompetence in the Gulf
These incompetent elitists in DC keep grabbing more and more power, and then even ask us for more and more power. Just ask Barney Frank… And when they fail at what they do, they just keep blaming George W. Bush – Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama’s favorite tune to play… Their best friends in this quest are trial attorneys and public unions – the same unions that are now threatening to kill the economies of Minnesota and Colorado… And a lovely example of the failure to lead our nation is in the Gulf of Mexico now, with the BP oil spill. This is the most poorly handled event in generations.
Public Employee Unions Running, and Ruining, America
The federal government of the United States of America recently surpassed the debt threshold of $13 trillion. States, counties and cities are also in trouble – especially in California where the state is run by public employee unions. The unfunded pension liabilities of most cities and states in the USA will soon make what happened recently in Greece commonplace in the USA. And with Leftists like Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid leading our country, the public unions are getting more powerful by the day. The fact that we live to serve government workers will become a bigger and bigger story as the days go on and as budgets look worse and worse… In Ottawa, winners are actually losers – if you win by too much… A prominent Keynesian economist clearly tells MSNBC that Obama’s fugazi stimulus bill was a failure.
The BP Oil Spill Continues and Protests of the Arizona Illegal Immigration Law
Live on Talk Radio 790 KABC in Los Angeles with Lee Klein: The oil spill in the gulf of Mexico continues as BP struggles to figure out a way to stop it, as our Barack Obama’s administration and the private companies involved in the spill keep pointing fingers in all directions. But, some new information on what happened right before the explosion may prove that the spill could have been avoided… And, people all across America protesting the Arizona illegal immigration law (SB 1070).
Felipe Calderon Slams Arizona Law and ObamaCare’s Costs Keep Rising
The attack on Arizona’s new illegal immigration law continues, but this time not just from most media outlets and Leftists like President Barack Obama, but also from Mexican President Felipe Calderon – after Obama provided him with one of the biggest stages in the world to bash an American law… A new appointee to the executive branch bashes the U.S. health care system and proves that ObamaCare was nothing more than a massive welfare program.
America on the Road to Failure and More Proposed Bailouts
A recent article on the front page of the Sunday edition of the New York Times clearly points out that the Welfare State (the model the USA is following) is a proven failure. Welfare states in Europe are crumbling, yet the Obama administration is trying to be more and more like those failed states… We now have two new proposed bailouts – I wonder how popular those will be? And, will philosophical scrutiny of all government actions by someone like Rand Paul be good for America – even though some are trying to paint him as a racist.
Propaganda and Lies Regarding Arizona’s Anti-Immigration Law
Ever since Arizona’s illegal immigration law (SB 1070) passed, and even before it passed, there have been lots of lies and misconceptions spread by the media and by our own federal government. What does the bill really say? Will you be stopped and harassed to show proof of citizenship if you walk across the street to buy ice cream? And, considering that we have 12-20 million illegal immigrants in the United States, what do you do about them?… ‘Wondering who was saved by President Barack Obama’s fugazi stimulus bill? The city of San Francisco released data indicating that its average employee makes $93,000/yr – and that doesn’t include benefits. So, we lost our jobs and are paying taxes through the nose so government workers can live the high life?
Utah’s New Old Idea and the Impact of Supreme Court Justices and Decisions
I had an epiphany while going to Croatia for my cousin’s wedding: if you eat lots of high-fat and high-sugar foods and combine that with a sever lack of exercise, you will likely gain weight. With that enlightenment I now solved Michelle Obama’s problem of trying to solve the crisis of childhood obesity… The president of the Utah state Senate and the Speaker of the Utah House wrote a letter asking President Obama to allow Utah to run certain programs within their state free of government strings and regulations – it’s based on something called the U.S. Constitution… And, the importance of Supreme Court justices and their decisions.
Public Unions Drowning California and ObamaCare Bends Cost Curve Up
If it is true that the country follows California’s lead, prepare for a nice ride down the toilet. California is a disaster and it has none other than its politicians and public unions to thank… Obama’s own Department of Health and Human Services just released a report and they determined, after spending millions of dollars analyzing ObamaCare, that there is no such thing as a free lunch. ObamaCare will increase costs of medical care – bending the cost curve up, not down, as President Barack Obama had promised us.
Politics: Financial and Immigration Reform
Unfortunately, the dunces in DC often prefer to play politics and do whatever they can to help themselves in the upcoming elections instead of dealing with the tasks at hand. It is no more apparent in the current battle for financial regulatory reform and with the recent immigration law passed in Arizona. Campaign season is in full swing on both of these – and the unanimous loser in all of this is America.
Acting Politicians and Food Deserts
Do you ever wonder what politicians sound like when they’re not reading off a teleprompter? Or if they are just puppets, and their heads are filled with what their puppet masters taught them, but that one day they can be derailed by a question they weren’t told how to answer? Or, just weren’t told enough info to fake it? How about if that person is president Barack Obama? Also… Our government loves to coin new phrases, new crusades, new wars on whatever. How about this one: food deserts.
Terroristic Tea Partiers
There’s been a lot of talk about the Tea Party movement. Former president Bill Clinton is trying to compare them to Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City bombing 15 years ago. Others label them (or any opposition to Barack Obama’s policies) as racist and hateful, claiming they are promoting domestic terrorism. Do you know what the Tea Partiers stand for? Have you looked into it? At a time when income taxes were just due, don’t you start to wonder how your money is being spent (wasted)?
The VAT, ObamaCare and Income Taxes
Live on Talk Radio 790 KABC: The value added tax looks like it’s headed to the USA, but how much more can our government tax us?… I am still being stiffed by my health insurance company… And, what percentage of people who work pay federal income taxes? How many people actually profit from paying federal taxes?
More Lobbyists in DC, Where are Stimulus Funds Going and Expanding the Welfare State
There’s a good reason why most people don’t believe the crap that politicians spew. And it’s no different for Barack Obama who also managed to wipe away Bill Clinton’s greatest achievement in Obama’s first couple months in office.
Cars that Kill, Oil Exploration Stunt and Congressional Witch Hunt
What do you think happens when you have to build a car using lighter materials? You get better gas mileage, but, there’s something else that’s more likely to happen too. And it’s all in the name of man made global warming, which is as real as the Easter Bunny – which was given a temporary dirt nap in Iowa… President Barack Obama plans offshore oil exploration, but what he says and what it really means are two completely different things… And, what kind of country drags CEOs in front of its central government when they follow the law and obey disclosure laws?
Nancy Pelosi’s Definition of Freedom and Obama’s Plan to Stop Foreclosures
What kind of America do you want to live in? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, after ObamaCare became law, defined “freedom” and told us very clearly what her utopia in America would look like… President Barack Obama has a plan to reduce the number of home foreclosures, but, will it work?
Violent and Racist Opposition to ObamaCare
According to the mainstream media, and the politicians who supported President Barack Obama’s health care reform bill, opposition to ObamaCare is racist at its core and violence only occurs on one side of the political spectrum. It takes great wisdom and intelligence to come to the conclusion that the actions of a couple loons represent a whole movement of millions of American citizens.
Supposed Premium Hikes, Cars for the Privileged and Embarrassed of the US Flag
Leftist, including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and President Barack Obama, sold ObamaCare to the American people as something they did FOR us, repeatedly using tactics such as sob stories, class warfare and the methodical selection of enemies. Tune in to find out how ObamaCare was sold to us – it reminded me of the Truecoat sales pitch in Fargo… Also, wouldn’t you love to have someone else pick up the tab for a car lease that costs over $1,000 per month? And, who do you think is embarrassed to fly the American flag?
ObamaCare Becomes Law
The Senate’s version of ObamaCare was passed by the House of Representatives, and signed into law by President Barack Obama. Tune in to find out how ObamaCare will change the United State of America.
Controlling Your Life and Karl Rove on Kudlo
Our society is resisting a transformation. From a free society to one where we are told what we can eat, what we can drink, what kind of cars we can drive, what kind of TVs we can watch, and even what kind of toilet paper we can use. ‘Makes you think the end of Rage Against the Machine’s “Killing in the Name” was written for Barack Obama and the current Democrats running the show in Washington, D.C… President Obama tries to change the definition of “poor” so that there is a perpetual “poor” sector of society – no matter how much wealth it amasses… And some interesting audio from Larry Kudlow’s interview of Karl Rove (President George W. Bush’s Deputy Chief of Staff and former Senior Advisor) on CNBC.
The Sob Sell, Government Greed and Green Economies
In a last ditch effort to force ObamaCare upon us, President Barack Obama has stooped to using children and their sob stories to try to convince us that his takeover of our health care system is a good thing. All this, while government workers continue to get raises, receive bonuses and hire more employees – which we pay for – while the private sector lost nearly ten million jobs over the past two years. The Leftist’s next push may be this “green jobs” nonsense. Look for further than Spain to see how that bright idea will turn out – if you are fond of 10% unemployment, then you’ll love it when it hits 20%.
DanielsCare, Federal Jobs, Pay for Pork and Pocketing Per Diems
Governor Mitch Daniels, of Indiana, reduces his state’s health care costs by over 10% by doing one simple thing – which Obama calls “not real insurance.” And, how does it make you feel to know that federal government workers get a far higher compensation than the private sector and that our Congressmen sell earmarks for donations and pocket per diems when they travel?
Don’t Pay As You Go, Escalating Debt and Failing High Schools
Congress passed Pay-Go, and President Barack Obama signed it. But when Senator Jim Bunning said Congress should follow the new pay-go rules, they tried to quarter him – all as our debt continues to pile up… Representative Steny Hoyer’s solution to a spending problem is higher taxes… And, what do you do when one of your high schools is loaded with failures and kids that are dropping out?
Success of the Stimulus Bill and Census Waste
President Barack Obama gave a speech touting his perceived success of his fugazi Stimulus Bill… Congress’ Credit Card Act recently took effect – intended to protect you. Will this cost you, or will you benefit? And, see how much of your money is being wasted on the 2010 Census.
Health Care Summit, Business Roundtable And Shovel-Ready Speeches
President Barack Obama held a “bi-partisan” health care summit and had a roundtable discussion with business leaders to figure out ways to help the economy. ‘Wonder what will come of this?
Blue Dogs More Blue than Canine, Paid Volunteers and Telling You how to Live
Actions speak louder than words. If a politician claims to be one thing, but does the complete opposite, why would you believe what they say? How many volunteer jobs have you had that paid tens of thousands of dollars? And, a new crisis has hit America, but, don’t worry Queen Michelle will save us.
Propagating Dependency Through Food Stamps
Our federal food stamp program – does it work? Is our money being wasted? How many billions of dollars are spent in just administration costs? Does food stamp fraud cost us billions of dollars per year? Tune in to find out…
Bush’s Tax Cuts for the Rich and Lech Walesa’s Warning
Whose taxes were cut under Bush’s tax cuts for the rich? Where is the money in our Fugazi Stimulus Bill being wasted? And, what warning does Lech Walesa have for the Unites States of America?
A New Era of Irresponsibility
President Barack Obama released his 2011 budget proposal. If you’re big fan of tax and spend policies, you’re gonna love the next few years of your life.
Fugazi Spending Freeze, Federal Subsidy Programs, Trains and the Paris Hiltons of Congress
How would you like to go on vacation whenever you want, wherever you want, and not have to worry about its cost at all since someone else is paying for it? If you do, you need to become a member of Congress (or just marry one). That follows in line with the joke of a spending freeze President Obama proposed – after he instituted record-high spending and deficits.
Obama’s 2010 State of the Union Address
What promises did President Barack Obama make in his 2010 State of the Union address, and are they good for America?
Obama’s 1st Year in Office
How has Barack Obama done in his first year as the President of the United States of America.
Head Start Failure, Brown Defeats Coakley and More Warm Mongering
Who’s stupid enough to increase funding for a $166 billion program that’s been proven to be a failure, while at the same time killing a program that works, and costs more than four times less than its replacement? What’s the significance, to all 50 states, of the US Senate special election in Massachusetts. And, if you believed the Himalayas would be glacier-free in just a few years, you bought another IPCC lie.
Stolen Property and Federalism
States should be allowed to run their states and not have to bow to the federal government… If you thought your business or property was safe, you thought wrong. Looks like the government can take it from you as long as their reason is “good enough.”
Fugazi Stimulus Bill
An analysis by the Associated Press shows that the construction projects funded by the stimulus bill aren’t doing much stimulating – not a surprise at all. If this approach miserably failed when Hoover and FDR tried it, what makes the current administration think it will work now?
Defense Bill – The Next Chapter of Lies and Broken Promises
Nothing helps keep us safer than spending money on museums. If pork is your favorite, you’ll love the new defense spending bill.
Transparent Administration? Not so Much
Didn’t President Obama promise us a new kind of politics and a transparent administration? If doing things behind closed doors and lying to us every step of the way is what he meant then he’s passing with flying colors.
Buying Votes and Public Union Slavery
Bush (and anyone who voted YES on Medicare Part D) bought votes with our money, and now ObamaCare supporters are also trying to buy votes with our money. And… If you had your own business, then one day found out that you somehow had an employer and money was being stolen from you by an organization claiming to represent you against your “employer,” would you be surprised? You shouldn’t be – tune in and find out what’s happening all over the USA.
Ripping Off Our Welfare System
Guest co-host Crysta from “The Malibu Dan and Crysta Show” is asked about her experience with welfare abuse. You’d be surprised by the kinds of cars some welfare recipients drive.
Common Sense in Health Care Spending
There is something very easy to do if you want to control spending on health care. Tune in to find out…
Build-A-Bear Brainwashing and Al Gore’s Poem
If you thought brainwashing children only happened in the Soviet Union and other Communist countries, think again… And Al Gore (our former inconvenient vice president) uses his alarmist scare tactics in a pathetic poem.
Recession? Not if you Work for DC
We’re taking huge pay cuts or losing our jobs, but the federal government is giving huge raises and hiring tons of people – does that sound like “tightening our belts” to you? And, Obama wants to use the bailout money as a jobs stimulus – what was the $787 billion stimulus bill for, preparation to spend money to create jobs?
Who Should Pay for Abortions?
Whose responsibility is it to pay for an abortion? If you think abortions shouldn’t be funded by taxpayer dollars, does that make you sexist?
Jobs Summit and Incentives for Good Teachers
There’s no need for a jobs summit – stop sending people unemployment checks and tell them to get off their asses and look for a job… In Massachusetts, they prove that teacher unions prefer to have stupid students and do everything they can to stand up for incompetent teachers – God forbid someone is praised for being a good teacher.
