Turkey with all the trimmings

Thursday, 02 October 2008

Here it is!  The 700+ Billion pound turkey  (H. R. 1424)  with all the trimmings!

From 4 pages to over 450 pages, what's been added?  More than $20B in all kinds of nifty provisions, including incentives for rum exporters!

It has become the American way to pay our debt with more debt.  That's all this bill does.  It's no rescue, it's another nail in the coffin.  And, friends, this coffin is buried in a deep heap of crap.

Don't let the media scare you.  We can get through tough times.  Socialist thinkers will tell you this is a collapse of free market.  It's not.  It's the result of years and years of regulation patches and personal and political greed.

Will it be harder for Americans to get a car loan?  Maybe.  Maybe we need to stop borrowing so much.

Please, please, write or call your representatives and tell them to vote NO to this bill. 

 

The Class Wars

Tuesday, 30 September 2008

Is anyone disturbed by the incredulous critique of McCain in last Friday's debate?  What?  He didn't use the term Middle-Class?  Can you believe it?  Not even once, did he pigeonhole a population into a Middle-Class.

Um, isn't that a good thing?  I mean, do we really live in a country defined by classes?  I'm particularly amused that it's the liberals who are so averse to labeling just about any other group of people, who were the first to jump on McCain for not using a label. 

As of today, we still live in a country where, though we may not be born into equal circumstances, we most certainly have equal opportunity to succeed.  Some of us have a longer, harder climb to get to the top, but that makes the view all the sweeter, in my opinion.  And I rather enjoy the freedom offered in this country to determine how high I want to climb.

Classes?  That's Communist talk.  

 

 

Ms. Speaker, heal thine own house, first

Nancy Pelosi and her sidekick Rahm Emanuel are quite a team, aren't they?  If you're wondering why congress has the lowest approval rating at under 15% - and I've heard even as low as 9% - all you have to do is listen to those two.  You know what, Ms. Pelosi?  If you're so sure this bailout is the right answer then get the votes from your OWN party.   Let history show how the Democrats saved the American economy from disaster in the fall of 2008.  This is your baby, Sweetie.

Emanuel, stop shooting your mouth off over all the ways this Administration is to blame for this crisis and invest in some history lessons.  There's enough blame to bury every administration since before FDR.  And, you know what?  Your party is the one holding the stacked deck, now.  Play 'em and Shut Up.

Here are over 100 economists who agree the rush to bailout is a bad idea.  How many of these names do you recognize?  Chances are, none.  The only voices you are likely to hear on the major "news" networks are establishment parrots who are paid to look good and create panic.  Maybe they are sincere.  I think the term Marx used was "useful idiots."

Huzzah! to the 95 Dems and the 133 Republicans who listened to their constituents (and reason) and did the right thing by voting NO to this socialist abomination.  

*Edited 9/30/08 - Turns out my Huzzah! was a bit too inclusiive.  Some of the Dems who voted 'no' were doing it, presumably, with blessings from Pelosi to ensure the bill would not pass with a majority Democrat vote.  Now, that's principled behavior.
