Hey all – I sure hope everyone had a great Halloween last night. My kids made out like bandits – which means – so did daddy!!!!!! Bwahahaha.
We have some great posts this week. Please make sure you visit these bloggers and let them know your thoughts and opinions of their posts.
You’re absolutely correct on this. Wish I had been there to here the speech in person.
As always, Scott – another great post. I hope my libber readers and contributors here will stop by and take a look. This faux “health care reform” bill is probably the worst legislation in the history of this country. Our country and economy can ill afford the price tag. Not only that, but we taxpayers can’t afford the penalties, fees, or taxes they plan to impose on us. Just more of the same old tax and spend democrat policies of the old.
Great post, Scott. I’ve pointed out some of those as well since January. Unfortunately, what it will take is some representative in Congress to push it to SCOTUS. But, will SCOTUS have the balls to overturn all those bills? Probably not, given the fact they supported the Unions over the bond holders. That decision alone turned our constitution on its head. Apparently, despite the fact that we do appear to have some conservative judges – they don’t want to buck the Obama machine either. I hope the elections of 2010 and 2012 will see some significant changes that will put this country back on track and perhaps put D.C. in line with the constitution again. We’ll see.
Welcome to the Carnival, Steve. You know it was Bush’s fault! It will always be Bush’s fault. I bet the 2012 elections will focus on just how much everything was Bush’s fault and that the four years that Obama will have had in at that time wasn’t enough time to fix everything that Bush screwed up. Not only that – but – anyone who has continued to stand in his way will always be labeled a racist. Nice post – but – it would be a pipe dream for any of us who oppose him to ever think he will accept the fact that he alone is destroying this country. Bush opened the door -but Obama is the one who actually walked through it.
BWL presents Another 10 billion to be spent on the extention of the home-buyer tax credit! posted at Christian Personal Finance, saying, “Is it really a good idea to extend the homebuyer tax credit?”
This is freakin’ ridiculous! We can’t afford these kinds of policies. If people have the money – they would buy a home regardless of the tax credits. This isn’t going to boost the market in any manner whatsoever. If it was – it would have worked already. The only reason this administration continues to throw these bones out there is to continue to try to enslave Americans to the government. There is always a catch with this administration. I’m just getting sick and tired of seeing my taxpayer money going to others for stupid crap like this.
Personally, for the sake of this country and our economy, I hope he does remain on the sidelines. Apparently, what you guys on the left forget is that a public option ultimately leads to a single payer system – which will ultimately destroy this country. If you don’t believe me – just ask anyone from Europe. Their economies are so bad – and a lot of that has to do with their government run health plans. In case you haven’t been paying attention – Canada and the rest of the European Union are all moving towards privatized medicine. Why do you think that might be?
Oooh. The Dems completely betray him in 2008 and you consider it a “favor” that Dingy Harry gives the most upstanding man in Congress a seat on a committee? At least Joe always goes with his convictions instead of whichever way the winds blow as the Dems and Repubs currently do. You shouldn’t be so hard on him. You should actually do a “special” limerick for those idiots that re leading the house and senate. They’re gonna be the downfall of Obama and the Democrat party.
Len Penzo presents It’s Time Unemployed People Start Working For Free posted at Len Penzo . Com.
Holy Shit, Len! 99 Weeks? I hadn’t realized it had gotten that bad. What the hell are we doing paying unemployment benefits for almost 2 freakin’ years? When I found myself on the unemployment line back in 1990 – the maximum was 6 months. And..you know what – that was quite a motivating factor to find a job – knowing that after 6 months was up – there would be absolutely no income coming in at all. Once again – liberal policies creating slaves to the government. How the hell do we turn this around? I had to report in to the office once a week in person and provide proof that I had been job seeking. I had interview cards that had to be completed by myself and signed by the employers I had interviews with. I had to have at minimum 3 a week to continue to receive benefits. I like your proposal – but – I think it needs to go even further than that. There needs to be at least one job interview per day and provide proof in person at the unemployment office at least once a week. This is bullshit.
Taft Babbitt presents Big Government is more dangerous than Big Business posted at American Sage.
Hey Taft – welcome! The 6 points you provide are spot on a should be a primer for any libber who believes government is the solution.
I agree Chuck – we should always vote out incumbents. Those idiots in DC will obviously never vote in term limits. Congress was never supposed to be a full-time career. Our representatives were citizen representatives until the late 1800′s when they started voting themselves in pay raises. Let’s get rid of all these long-term career politicians. They are the one’s who ruined this country – not we good citizens. Although – there are a lot if ignorant electorate out there who just continue to vote the flow. Let’s hope there are enough who have woken up now to take a stand in 2010 and 2012.
Awesome post. I have nothing further to add to this at all. Your last sentence says it all.
Thanks for this post, Thinker. The good news is that at this time, those socialist believers are in the very minority. The bad news about that is that very minority is actually who is in charge of our government right now. I only hope enough people wake up and realize what this means to the future of our country before it is too late. Perhaps if they hear a modern-day Russian speak out against it – some of those on the other side might realize they’ve been duped.
jim presents Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009 (HR 1207) posted at Blueprint for Financial Prosperity, saying, “This is a bipartisan issue that I think we need to get more publicity to. We need more accountability and transparency in the “quasi-public” Fed.”
Thanks for posting this here Jim. I had planned on doing a post myself – now I don’t need to. You are absolutely correct – this is a bill that all sides need to get on board with. The Fed (a private owned corporation) has waaay too much power over our financial policies. It’s time for the people to know EXACTLY where our money is and who is getting it.
