Corruption: The American Way

Is America a corrupt nation? Yes, have we always been a corrupt nation? Yes, will we always be a corrupt nation? Yes again. Let’s face it, America has been, is now, and will be a corrupt nation, that is what seems to make America work.

I recently rented the Spielberg movie Lincoln, it was a good movie, but after all the hype I expected a little more, but I still enjoyed it. The one thing that stuck out to me was the fact that Lincoln had to resort to many shady practices to get the Thirteenth Amendment passed. Extortion, bribery and lies were the things that got the Thirteenth Amendment passed, without all those deceptive practices Lincoln had no chance of getting the Amendment through congress.

Who can forget the passage of Obama-Care, we all remember the corruption when Obama was trying to push his bill through. Politicians being payed off with bribe after bribe, politicians refusing to vote for the bill unless their palms were greased. If not for the corruption Obama-Care would not be the law of the land, this was the mirror image of how Lincoln got his bill passed.

Now we have the Immigration Bill working its way through congress, low and behold corruption rules the day again, already we are reading about payoffs to politicians who would not vote for the bill otherwise. One has to wonder, do any of these politicians really care about anything that they vote on, do the American people ever enter their thoughts when they are preparing to vote, or do they think, O.K. my price was met so I will vote for it. The new Immigration Bill is nothing more than another pork barrel bill, just more waste of the American people’s money.

Corruption is nothing new in Government; it has been going on since ancient Rome and in our own country, it has been going on since Washington was President. How many politicians campaign on a platform of reform, but as soon as they are in office, they conform to the Washington way. Reform has been preached for years, but politicians always find a way around them. Political corruption reform started with the Pendleton Act of 1883 which created a federal civil service to cope with patronage problems. The Tillman Act of 1907 stopped banks and corporation from contributing to federal elections. In 1910, the law was passed requiring congressional candidates and their organization to report contributions and expenditures however it had many loopholes. The Federal Regulation of Lobbying Act was passed in 1946 however; both the Truman and Eisenhower presidencies were accused of questionable behavior by lobbyists.

Let’s face it, we all have to face the reality that corruption is a part of the way Government does business and it is here to stay. I truly believe Washington would be at a standstill without corruption, you think nothing gets done now, without corruption in Government, Washington would collapse. I don’t care who is in office, there will always be the you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours mentality, without it nothing would get done.

Without a doubt, Obama is a master at corruption, well what do you expect, he comes from one of the most corrupt cities in the country, Chicago. Make no mistake about it, Obama is a very corrupt President, if there ever was a President that believed in crony politics it is Obama, he is not a leader, so he has to bribe, lie and extort to get things done. However, what are we getting so upset about, at least we finally found out that he is good at something.

Can We Trade Obama For Putin?

Who knew, after the past four years of calling Obama a Socialist, it turns out we were wrong, it is now confirmed, he is a Communist. I guess we all owe Obama an apology, only calling him a Socialist for four years when he was a Communist must have been a big hit to his ego. But now the truth is out and I think we all should apologize to Obama for calling him a mere Socialist, after all being a Communist is one step up from being a Socialist. Let’s not forget all his supporters that were screaming “Obama is not a Socialist” for the past four years, they deserve an apology as well, after all it turns out they were not lying to us.

It seems that the Russian newspaper Pravda, which was formed as the official Communist publication of the former Soviet Union, came out with a story the other day claiming that Obama is without a doubt a Communist, after all, who would know a Communist better than Russia?

The author, Xavier Lerma, goes on to say how Obama’s “cult of personality” has mesmerized the ignorant in America, who will follow the hope and change icon in much the same way as ”fools” still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia, “Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same drink of illusion.” Now I think at this point I deserve an apology from all the Liberals who have been calling me a racist and a bigot for calling the followers of Obama idiots over the past four years, seems I was right for calling them ignorant idiots all along.

Mr. Lerma went on to say that even President Vladimir Putin was more of a capitalist than Obama. Listen to what Putin said recently, “During the time of the Soviet Union the role of the state in economy was made absolute, which eventually lead to the total non-competitiveness of the economy. That lesson cost us very dearly. I am sure no one would want history to repeat itself.” Putin also speaks and promotes smaller government and less taxes.

Now, my question is this, if a Communist says that he has learned his lesson, that Communism does not work, what the hell is wrong with Obama, why is he trying to take us down the same path that collapsed the Soviet Union? Many people, including myself have said that was Obama’s plan all along that he wanted to end the American way of life, now we know he just might do it.

Mr. Lerma also noticed some other similarities with the former Soviet Union and America.  “Christianity in the U.S. is under attack as it was during the early period of the Soviet Union when religious symbols were against the law,” We see everyday attacks on Christianity, The ACLU and other atheist groups in America are on the attack against religious symbols. Lawsuits against religious freedom and expression seem to be an everyday occurrence.

For years, I have been watching videos on YouTube with people who fled Communist countries and came to America for freedom, but noticed that America was starting to resemble the countries that they fled. Now we have a former Communist, telling us that we are headed in the wrong direction, when are the American people going to wake-up, when we have a hammer and cycle on our flag?

Is there a reason why the former Soviet Union is now becoming more like America used to be? Of course there is, because the America of yesteryear worked and Communism does not, is that so hard to understand? I guess it must be, because America has chosen a President who wants to take us down a road that will surely fail. But many of us in America knew what his intentions were all along, the rest were Kool-Aid drinkers. I only wish Pravda had published that piece a week before the election, maybe more people would have woken up.

ObamaCare; We Warned You This Would Happen

Well it is happening, we told you it was going to happen, but all you Liberal Democrats were bent on defending a bill you knew nothing about and never even thought of reading. The only reason you defended it was because it was a bill passed by Democrats, that is all you cared about. The Republicans kept warning you what was going to happen if the bill became law, but all you saw was free health-care, the word free was stamped on the inside of your eyelids so that is the only thing that you saw.

As soon as Obama was re-elected, companies started laying off workers; it is just too damn expensive. However, instead of seeing the reality, the left is doing what it does best, blaming the business owner, it makes more sense to the left, that a business owner would rather shrink its business just to spite Obama. Let me try this once again, hopefully the left will start to get it.    IT IS A JOB KILLING BILL.

Let’s look at Applebee’s restaurants in the New York City area, they announced that the company was freezing employment and would not build any new restaurants. President Obama’s re-election meant that Obama-Care was likely to be fully implemented, costing his company millions of dollars and significantly raising the cost of hiring a worker. That statement prompted outrage and threats of a boycott, (the left is good at that) but he was far from alone. Already John Schnatter, CEO of Papa John’s Pizza, has announced that he would likely lay off some workers. Earlier, Schnatter said that Obama-Care would cost his business $5 billion to $8 billion annually, forcing him to increase the price of pizzas.

Meanwhile, two other restaurant chains, Olive Garden and Red Lobster, are moving many of their employees off full time work in order to avoid the law’s mandate that anyone working more than 30 hours must have insurance. The owner of 40 Denny’s in Florida, says he will add a 5% surcharge to customer bills in 2014 to cover his increased costs. In addition, Dana Holdings, an auto-parts manufacturer with more than 25,000 employees, says it too is exploring Obama-Care-related layoffs. There is something that the left just cannot seem to get through their head, which is a business has to make a profit in order to stay open, if they do not, the business will close and no one will have a job. Nevertheless, maybe that is what the left really wants, since Obama’s goal is to put as many people as he can on Government subsidies, I guess that was his plan all along.

France has the same Government policy, most of the government regulations kick in at 50 workers, while there are over 3,000 companies that employ under 50 people and a little over 600 companies that employ over 50 people, what more proof do you need. Are you on the left getting this, Government regulations kill jobs; it has been proven time and time again, why does it not sink in to those Liberal brains? Even the Congressional Budget Office has said, Obama-Care could end up costing as many as 800,000 jobs. Is that going to wake-up the people on the left? Probably not.

Let’s face it, everything that Obama and the Democrats said about Obama-Care was pretty much a lie, although since not one of them actually read the bill, I guess technically they are not liars, remember Pelosi said “We have to pass the bill so we can find out what is in it.” Smart move.

Let’s face it, this is only the beginning, the truth of what the bill really is will start to come out little by little and people will start to realize that it was nothing more than a way for Government to take over the health care system. One by one, Obama’s lies will start to surface, believe me it is not going to be pretty. The left shouts, now everyone will have health care, well everyone might have an insurance card, but how many are going to have access to health care. This law is going to make health care a two class system, the wealthy will have the best health care because they will be paying cash, while the rest of us will have rationed health care, because there will not be enough doctors to go around.

I want those on the left to remember that old saying, “Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.” Remember, you are going to get it too, and it is going to be without Vaseline.

Entrepreneurship Not Government, Can Save Our Country

America woke up on November 7th to find a transformed country, but that is what Obama promised anyway, so why were we surprised. We are now a big Government country; it seems America has chosen to have big Government in charge of our lives, boy how America has changed. We are a far cry from where we started, history has proven time and time again that big Government suffocates, not grows an economy.

I have always been fascinated and intrigued by history as well entrepreneurship, so when the History Channel had a series called The Men Who Built America, you could not keep me away. As I watched the series, I could not help but realize that there was one thing missing from the equation, and that missing part of how these men became rich and successful was Government, that’s right Government.

It seems that these men became rich and successful and this country grew and became a powerhouse without the interference of Government. But how can that be, when we have a society today that believes that we would all perish without Government in our lives. A month ago, I would not have believed that, but after this past election, it is obvious that the people of this country think that Government is the answer, instead of the individual being responsible for their own lives. It seems that the Democrats plan of making people dependent on Government, so that they will always vote Democratic is working. It’s a shame.

The more I watched, the more I was amazed at how much these men accomplished by themselves, without one ounce of help from the Government, and yes Obama, they did truly build that. Men like Andrew Carnegie, big steel man, when he needed a bridge to cross a river so he could sell his goods and grow his business, he did not run to the Government, he rounded up investors, raised the money himself in order to build that bridge, no Government help. Yes Obama, he did build that.

After Cornelius Vanderbilt built a ferryboat empire, and realized that railroads were the next big boom, did he run to the Government for help? No, he built all the railway stations himself, as well as laying the entire track throughout the country with investor money. That included all the roads, bridges as well as the tracks; Government never came into the picture. In addition, during a rough period in his life, when he was faced with losing everything, did he run to the Government for a bailout? No, with his own ingenuity and determination, he managed to pull himself back to prosperity.

Moreover, during the financial meltdown of 1907, who saved the country from falling into a deep depression? J.P. Morgan. As a matter of fact, the panic might have deepened if not for the intervention of financier J. P. Morgan, who pledged large sums of his own money, and convinced other New York bankers to do the same, to shore up the banking system. How about that, the Government came running to the private sector for a bailout. During the recent financial meltdown of our own, people were screaming that the Government had to do something, so they did, with taxpayer money, now we are all on the hook for it. As I was watching this, I found myself thinking why the hell do we need Government, these men built this country without Governments help, then I realized that America, the America of rugged individualism and independent thinkers is no more, now Government is the only answer.

There are those in this country, well, it seems most in this country, want Government to not only run everything, but also take care of our every wants in life. I find it very sad where we find ourselves as a country and as a people. After this past election, I had to face the fact that we are no longer a center-right nation; it seems the people of this country decided that big Government is the way to go.

Calvin Coolidge, our 30th President said, “The business of America is business.” He was so right, without business how would this country survive. It is businesses that pay the taxes, create jobs so people can live, why without the private sector creating jobs and wealth in this country, we would cease to have a country.  I think America woke-up on the wrong side of the bed this past Election Day.

Liberal Brown Shirts Strike Again

It seems that free speech and truth are under assault in this country once again, it seems that Hitler’s brown shirt brigade have taken root in America. While Adolf Hitler was rising to power in Germany in the 1930’s he had a group of people dressed in brown shirts, it was their job to silence any person that did not agree with Hitler’s way of thinking, so free speech and truth did not exist, unless they were Hitler’s.

The reason I bring this up, is that this is happening today in America, except the brown shirts are now called Liberals. Believe me they are a shifty and dangerous group of people, they are the true fascists of today. You have to watch out for them, because they are the complete opposite of what they preach. They preach they are for tolerance and against hate, yet if your views differ from theirs, they are the first to attack and viciously I might add.

I bring this up because once again they show themselves for what they truly are, hypocrites. The election is over; business owners were waiting to make a move because they wanted to see who was going to win, Romney was their choice because he would have been better for business. After Obama won, many businesses around the country announced layoffs, Papa John’s Pizza announced cutbacks because of Obamacare, it is just too expensive. Right away the brown shirts, sorry, I mean the Liberals came out attacking Papa John’s for lying about Obamacare. According to them, Papa John’s was lying about Obamacare only because they hated Obama and wanted to hurt him anyway they can, so they called for a national boycott; do not buy Papa John’s pizza. Now I must say, Liberals are pretty stupid to think that a man would deliberately prevent his business from growing, just to spite Obama, morons.

Like Jack Nicholson said in the movie A Few Good Men, “They can’t handle the truth.” The fact of the matter is, Obamacare is a job killing monstrosity of a bill, the negatives outweigh the positives tenfold, but the truth must not be told because it is not the truth that Liberals believe in. In addition, who can forget the big Chick- Fil-A fiasco, because the President of the company believes in traditional marriage, as I do and millions upon millions of people of this country do as well, he was demonized and a boycott was called for.  However, the brown shirts, I mean the Liberals were stopped in their tracks when the whole thing blew up in their faces. It seems that the normal people of this country had a plan of their own, that was to pick a day and eat at Chick-Fil- A. The response was so overwhelming, that Chick-Fil-A had its most profitable day in the history of the company, three cheers for the normal people of this country.

When it comes to the brown shirts, I mean Liberals; I don’t understand why I keep confusing the two? I guess maybe it is because they are one and the same. If it is not their idea of truth, the rest of us must not believe it and God forbid we should speak out. You see free speech and truth belong only to the Liberals and if you disagree, be prepared to be bombarded with all the hate they can muster, tolerance, I do not think they know the meaning of the word, although they say that is what they stand for.

In addition, during the election, a few actresses had the nerve to say that they supported Romney for President, how dare they, can you imagine someone actually voting their conscience in Hollywood, they need to move out immediately, can’t have none of that, now can we?  These poor women were attacked viciously on Twitter, with words I have not used since I was a juvenile, but that is the mindset of a Liberal I guess, juvenile that is.

The problem is that most people back down when they are attacked, therefore the Liberals win their argument, that is how they stifle free speech. I for one made a vow years ago never to be politically correct, as a matter of fact, I go out of my way to be politically incorrect, because I know it annoys them. This is America, we are allowed to have our own views, without being attacked for them, but the Liberal brown shirts seem to have forgotten that, I guess they think they are back in Nazi Germany, I tell you, sometimes it feels like it.

Remember, Liberals, Progressives, Socialists, Communists, Marxists are all cut from the same hunk of wood.

America You Really Blew It

America had the perfect opportunity to turn this country around and get it back on the road to prosperity, but America, you blew it. We had standing in front of us, the perfect man to get us out of the situation we find ourselves in. A leader, a successful businessman, a successful Governor, a good man, an honest man, a thoughtful man, a generous man, an intelligent man, a compassionate man, a hard working get it done type of man, but instead America chose a man who is the complete opposite, what the hell were you thinking?

America, instead you chose a man who chooses to divide our country, a man who said he was going to unite the country, but did the complete opposite. He has been the most divisive President in my life time. America, I believe you elected a man who cares little about its people, but only cares about shoving his idealistic views down our throats. Richard Trumka, head of the most powerful union AFL-CIO said,  “We did deliver those states, Without organized labor, none of those states would have been in the president’s column.” Do you think it is big payback time for the unions? Trumka also said that Obama should raise taxes on the rich, not make cuts to Social Security or Medicaid, and to pay no attention to the deficit, as Trumka goes, so does Obama.

America, you have chosen a man who has done little to restore our economy over the past four years and our standing around the world. You have chosen a man who chooses to lead from behind and who passes the heavy lifting to others, as a matter of fact he is known as a week negotiator and his own party prefers that he stays away from negotiations, what kind of leader is that?

America, did you happen to notice that when hurricane Sandy hit, he flew to New Jersey, took a few pictures, told the press he was going to take care of it and was never seen or heard from again. Two weeks later hundreds of thousands of people still have no lights, no heat, no transportation, no food, yet he promised to take care of it, where is the leadership?

America, You re-elected a man who showed no plan for his next four years except to say forward, if you thought the first four years were bad, the next four years, with him not worrying about having to be re-elected, well all I can say is bend over and spread em, but don’t complain because you asked for it.

America, with the re-election of Obama, you now allow Obamacare to take effect. Because of that, the day after he was re-elected, dozens of companies started to lay off workers, with many other companies to follow. Obamacare was set-up supposedly so everyone would have insurance, but let me ask you; maybe everyone will have an insurance card, but does mean everyone will have access to medical care? Many doctors are leaving the profession and over 27% of doctors say they will not take insurance, only cash. If people would just have taken the time to read the law, they would realize what a disaster it really is.

America, you have re-elected a man who gave us trillion dollar deficits each year he was in office, who has given us over 16 trillion dollars of debt, who gave America its first credit down grade in our nation’s history, who continues to grow government and keeps borrowing money from other countries to fuel his spending habits. Oh, and by the way, the unemployment rate is still higher today than when he took office, after four years and you can expect it to go higher.  You call that leadership?

America, what else can I say, you really blew it. You could have given the reins to a man who would have brought true hope and prosperity to this country, but instead you gave them to a man who after four years showed you who he was and that he was incapable of doing the job, now we all have to pay.

If you had any doubts before if Obama was a Socialist Marxist at heart, wait and see what he has in store for his second term with a boat load of new Government regulation.

This is a special note to all the so-called Republicans and Conservatives out there who complained about Obama for four years, then chose not to vote because you did not like Romney. I blame you more than anyone else, from here on out you have no right to complain about Obama, because you are the ones that put him back in office.

 

This is one man’s opinion.

I Think This Says It All

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, after looking at this picture I would have to agree. If there are any undecided voters out there, which I can not understand how there are, this picture should tell the whole story. It might even give you a little chuckle.

Is Obama, Carter Or Was Carter, Obama?

Something has always puzzled me, when Obama was elected President, he kept saying that he inherited the worst economy since the great depression. After three years of him not being able to turn the economy around, he said it was because he did not realize how bad the economy was when he first took office. I do not understand, how can it be worse than the worst economy, either it was the worst, or it is the worst, are you as confused as I am? Do you think Obama is just making excuses why his policies are not working?

Former President Bill Clinton, while sticking up for Obama in one of his speeches, said that the economy was so bad that no one could have turned the economy around in one term, not even him. Well there is a reason why that is true and it has nothing to do with how bad the economy was, it is because we need a Republican to do it. I can hear the Liberals screaming now, Bush left Obama with a bad economy, yes, and we have heard that for four years now, is not enough, enough? Any way, it was the Democrats that actually caused the problem, but that is another story. This country hired Obama to turn the economy around, not cry, complain and blame about it, which is what Obama has been doing for the past four years.

For those of us who are old enough to remember another President by the name of Jimmy Carter, will also see the amazing similarities between Carter and Obama, to start with both were incompetent and should never have been President. However, there is one thing that I need to bring up, Carter’s economy was much worse than Obama’s. During the Carter day’s inflation and interest rates both soared to double digits, going as high as 20%, while unemployment soared to 11%. Then there was the problem with Iran, with American hostages being held captive for over 400 days. In addition, how can we forget about gas prices, Carter had a terrible oil crisis, I remember, because I was there. Gas prices doubled, we had long lines at the gas stations and we had odd and even days when you could buy gas, if your license plate ended in an odd number, you could only buy gas on an odd numbered day, plus the lines stretched around the block and many stations only let you get ten dollars worth of gas.

Let us review the similarities;

  1. Carter had a problem with high unemployment, so does Obama.
  2. Carter had a problem with high interest rates and inflation, Obama does not.
  3. Carter had a problem with falling wages, so does Obama
  4. Carter was a weak leader, so is Obama
  5. Carter let Iran push us around, so is Obama
  6. Carter let gas prices rise instead of finding ways to get more oil, so is Obama
  7. Carter watched the economy shrink, so is Obama
  8. Carter stooped to class warfare to try to get reelected, So did Obama
  9.  Carter blamed the rich for the countries woe’s, so is Obama
  10.  Carter thought that raising taxes on the rich would solve all problems, so does Obama.
  11.  Carter liked to blame and apologize for America, so does Obama.
  12.   Carter saw gas prices double on his watch, so did Obama.

Wow, just like twins separated at birth, now let us get to the best part. Carter’s Republican opponent was Ronald Reagan, who was behind in the polls at the time of their debate. After their debate, Reagan saw a turn around and soared in the polls, why? Because during the campaign, all Carter did was demonize Reagan as some kind of monster, after the debate the American people saw Reagan not as a monster, but as man who was strong and could be President. Just like Obama and Romney, is it not?

Well, Reagan won that election by a wide margin, just as Romney is going to do. I saved the best for last, Reagan came into office and had the economy not only turned around, but also had it booming in three years time. You see, when Bill Clinton said Obama could not turn the economy around in one term and not even he could turn it around, he was right, but it was not because it is impossible, it was because they just did not know how to do it. Just as Republican Ronald Reagan got the economy moving again, we need Republican Mitt Romney to get our economy moving again.

As the saying goes, even Stevie Wonder can see that.

Thomas Jefferson: Things I Did Not Know

thomas-jefferson-statue

I have always considered our Founding Fathers the smartest men who ever lived. Creating the United States Of America, the envy of the world was an unbelievable accomplishment. Recently I have found out more about Thomas Jefferson, he was a remarkable man.

John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement: “This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”

Thomas Jefferson was a very remarkable man who started learning very early in life and never stopped.

At 5, began studying under his cousin’s tutor.

At 9, studied Latin, Greek and French.

At 14, studied classical literature and additional languages.

At 16, entered the College of William and Mary.

At 19, studied Law for 5 years starting under George Wythe.

At 25, was elected to the Virginia House of Burgesses.

At 31, wrote the widely circulated “Summary View of the Rights of British America ” and retired from his law practice.

At 32, was a Delegate to the Second Continental Congress.

At 33, wrote the Declaration of Independence.

At 33, took three years to revise Virginia’s legal code and wrote a Public Education bill and a statute for Religious Freedom.

At 36, was elected the second Governor of Virginia succeeding Patrick Henry.

At 40, served in Congress for two years.

At 41, was the American minister to France and negotiated commercial treaties with European nations along with Ben Franklin and John Adams.

At 46, served as the first Secretary of State under George Washington.

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

  “The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.” — Thomas Jefferson

“It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.” — Thomas Jefferson

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” — Thomas Jefferson

“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.” — Thomas Jefferson

“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” — Thomas Jefferson

“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”– Thomas Jefferson

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” — Thomas Jefferson

“To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.” — Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802: “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

What Song Does Obama Sing In The Shower?

For those of you who may not know, the Beatles recorded a song called Taxman. Here are the lyrics for the song.

Let me tell you how it will be
There’s one for you, nineteen for me
‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman

Should five per cent appear too small
Be thankful I don’t take it all
‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah I’m the taxman

If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat.
If you get too cold I’ll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet.

Don’t ask me what I want it for
If you don’t want to pay some more
‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman

Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman
And you’re working for no one but me.

Does it, or does it not sound like a song that Obama would sing in the shower? I bet he probably does. I can just picture President Obama leading Pelosi, Reed and the rest of the Democratic Party at the convention, making this their theme song. After all, we all know that the Democratic Party is the tax and spend party.

Even with a 16 trillion national debt, the Democrats keep on insisting that we should raise taxes and spend more money. I would like to quote Charlie Brown here “Good Grief.” Will they ever learn? Today’s Democratic party defies all logic, they want to keep taking more and more money out of the economy by raising taxes and waste it on idiotic projects like Solyndra. I am no economist, in fact I barely made it out of high school, but it just seems so simple to me. Low taxes means more money in people’s pockets, if there is more money in people’s pockets, they spend more, when they spend more, they feed the economy, when they feed the economy, the economy grows, is that so hard to understand.

Nevertheless, I will tell you the truth, I am afraid to put more money in the hands of the Democrats, because they will only put it towards liberal policies that are hurting our society. What scares me the most, is that they truly think they are doing good, when all they are doing is hurting America with their liberal policies.

I think we have to be fair though, Obama had no experience or qualifications for the job he now holds, I mean after all, the only thing he did was hand out pamphlets to people as a community organizer, so we have to cut him a little slack. Now as president, he seems to think that the world revolves around him and that he has the right to take money from who he chooses and give it to whom he thinks deserves it. It seems only he has the right to say what is fair for the rest of us. Which brings me to Obama’s second favorite Beatle song,
I Me Mine.

I Want My Buttered Pop Corn

Let us be truthful here. Government cannot do anything right. Government cannot run government. They screw up everything they touch. One of the reasons is that they hire anyone. If you can’t make it in the private sector, don’t worry, the government will hire you. If you have a pulse, you have a job with the government. It doesn’t matter if you know nothing about the position they hire you for. Moreover, if you want to get rich, just get a government contract. You can charge them whatever you want, and they will pay. It’s a well-known fact that they pay $1,500 for a wrench, $200 for a bolt, and even $2,500 for a toilet seat.

Over the years, I have read so many stories of how the government just throws money around. Moreover, what do they care; it’s not their money, it’s ours. Did you know that it cost the government 2.4 cents to make a penny and 11.18 cents to make a nickel? And you wonder why the government is always in debt. And they are always grabbing our money for the stupidest things that don’t make any sense. Does anyone really care how much gas a cow releases when it burps? Or how much water passes through a fish’s gills when it swims? Yet the government spends millions upon millions of dollars for asinine projects like this every year. In addition, any program the government comes out with is an ATM machine for organized crime. Enough already.

Government is the biggest source of waste in this country. It boggles the mind how much of our money they waste. And they always want more. The government truly believes that if you throw enough money at a problem, it will make it go away. What we need to do is bring in a couple of business people like Donald Trump to cut and stream line the government. (With any luck, we will get Romney) Let the government be run like a business, by executives. Just like in business, they need to trim the fat. Now we have the big G.S.A. scandal, Just more proof the government could not care any less about how our tax money is spent. Higher taxes, just means bigger parties for government workers.

I always believed in small government. Keep the government out of my everyday life. Let me make my own decisions, and spend my own money the way I see fit. Over the years, I have seen the government grow instead of getting smaller. In addition, they are telling me what I can and cannot do, eat and not eat, drink and not drink. The first time I noticed this was years ago when I heard that they were banning butter from movie houses. How can you go to a movie, order buttered popcorn, and not get butter? Someone along the way decided that butter was not good for you. It clogs the arteries. So they had to take it out of movie theaters and use a butter substitute. The argument was that it was healthier for you, and you would live longer. You know, I go to the movies maybe 3-4 times a year. Are they trying to tell me that having butter on my popcorn 3-4 times a year is really going to matter? Anyway, I like the taste of butter. People that want real butter on their popcorn should be able to have it. What’s wrong with having a choice in the theater when you order buttered popcorn. They simply should ask if you want real or substitute. Take the government out of the theater. And give me back my buttered popcorn.
