About TJ Thompson


  1. Well – If your premise while very subject to interpretation is correct then it is time for Obama and his entire cabinet to resign in disgrace. Three strikes? Hell I stopped counting at constitutional runarounds and programs designed to void our laws yet garner votes such as promoting illegal invasion of the US.

    What time did you get this Soros/Media Matters Hit piece last night? Were they on the ball or did they pick one of the prepared articles?

    LET’S move the conversation to budgets and the economy…Let’s.

    • What time did I get this?? Let’s see, I sat down and wrote this between 1am and the published timestamp of 2:18am EDT.

      3 words: Prove Me Wrong: me@tjthompson.com

      You want to talk about budgets and the economy? LET’S do that, shall we?

      The Ryan Budget Plan has the United States financial ledger running a deficit every year for the next 30 years – only THEN will we see an annual surplus.

      Further budget analysis from his voting record is not much better:
      -Voted YES on TARP (2008)
      -Voted YES on Economic Stimulus HR 5140 (2008)
      -Voted YES on $15B bailout for GM and Chrysler. (Dec 2008)
      -Voted YES on $192B additional anti-recession stimulus spending. (Jul 2009)

      The Ryan Plan also addresses entitlements – specifically Medicare and Medicaid. The problem is that there are no changes made to Medicare for 10 years, which leaves a full decade for the Medicare program to expand on it’s current $83.3 TRILLION unfunded liability.

      And again, to refer back to Paul Ryan’s record on entitlement programs:
      -Voted YES on providing $70 million for Section 8 Housing vouchers. (Jun 2006)
      -Voted YES on extending unemployment benefits from 39 weeks to 59 weeks. (Oct 2008)
      -Voted YES on Head Start Act (2007)

      …..so please… LET’S talk budgets, economy, and entitlements (which fit naturally into that mold)

    • And I will agree with you on Obama and everyone else around him.

      I despise Obama, and everything that he’s done, doing, and wants to do.

      I’m not some idiotic liberal, as you rudely insinuated.

      I am a Conservative, and I have no problem pointing out when Republicans are not Conservatives — and most aren’t.
