John Boehner: “I’ve Learned My Lesson”!!  REALLY???

John Boehner: “I’ve Learned My Lesson”!! REALLY???

Well, John Boehner took time out from his latest sob-fest to come out with promises that he is going to “do things differently now”, he “has learned his lesson”. We are hearing to same old tired rhetoric we heard before the 2010 mid-term elections. Didn’t he come into the Speaker’s chair promising to “drain the […]

House Republicans cave on spending, embrace higher taxes

House Republicans cave on spending, embrace higher taxes

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. That is exactly what just happened once again in Washington. The people that created the country’s economic problems are somehow going to fix them with our tax dollars that we can’t account for and without cutting spending? Even […]

Off The Cliff We Go

Off The Cliff We Go

Tonight, Speaker of the House John Boehner declined to bring his so-called “Plan B” for averting the so-called fiscal cliff for a vote. “Plan B” did not have enough support among House Republicans to pass. The House immediately voted to adjourn until after Christmas. We’re pretty much going off the cliff unless something drastic happens […]

Let Obama Leap Off the Fiscal Cliff Alone

Let Obama Leap Off the Fiscal Cliff Alone

The editorial cartoon on the left perfectly summarizes the political situation surrounding fiscal cliff negotiations. The lesson is Republicans will be blamed regardless. CNN and Pew Research Center polls show a majority of the public will blame the GOP if the country goes over the cliff, even if Speaker Boehner fetches coffee for Obama during […]

Boehner: This is Not a Game

Speaker of the House, John Boehner, responded strongly to President Obama’s continued campaign effort to ‘tax the rich’ as a means to end the financial crisis quickly. Tax increases on the wealthiest two percent of Americans will damage the economy and is not the solution, said Boehner, reaching out through social media via the Internet […]

Perversion Rampant in America: Sponsored By Obama and Congress

Can things really get any worse in our nation? Planned Parenthood, “the bastion of breast cancer screening”, is beginning their “National Condom Week” today, Wednesday February 15, 2012. How asinine can anyone get to have a national condom week and celebrate it with such ballyhoo? Is Mr. Condom a national hero or something? Congressional Medal […]

Republicans Cave on Bush Tax Cut Extension, White House Wants More

Republican congressional leaders are indicating that they will allow the Bush tax cuts to be extended until the end of the year without requiring offset spending cuts to pay for it. The White House is demanding that the GOP give even more. The leaders of congressional Republicans will present an extension of the Bush tax […]

Keystone Pipeline: Why Obama Said No; And What Happens Now?

Yesterday the Obama administration announced he was declining the Keystone XL pipeline application due to the Republicans setting an “unreasonable timeline” of February 21, 2012 for a decision. That George W. Bush, still causing problems for Obama!!! Obama wanted to put it off until after the 2012 elections so he could continue to draw campaign […]

Keystone XL Pipeline Nixed By Obama Administration

According to reports out today, the Obama administration will reject TransCanada Corp. (TRP)’s Keystone XL oil pipeline. The company will be allowed to file a revised route that avoids an environmentally sensitive area in Nebraska, according to people familiar with the decision. The decision is expected to be officially announced today by the State Department. […]

January 10, 2012 Sen. Inhofe, Sen. Coburn, Rep. Boren: I am writing concerning several issues that show a total contempt for the Constitution and We the People of the United States of America by Barack Obama, and more frightening, the Congress of the United States of America. I have just been made aware of S. […]

The payroll tax gambit, eggs and the GOP miscalculation

The phrase “couldn’t find their butts with both hands tied behind their backs” comes to mind as I analyze the feat of stupidity undertaken by the leaders of the House and Senate in the Social Security revenue cut proposal (a.k.a. payroll tax holiday). A news outlet I do not often quote, The New York Times,  has […]

THERE ARE NO CUTS! – The Fallacy of Baseline Budgeting

From thehill.com I almost have to laugh at the old car commercials with the loud salesmen and the blinking graphics, “Come in today and save $5,000!!”  You have to know that this type of advertising works because it is still being used.  Ergo, there must still be idiots out there that think they are really […]

FAILED: Balanced Budget Amendment Does Not Pass House Vote

Just days after the national debt hit $15 trillion, in what Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, describes as the “last line of defense against Congress’ unending desire to overspend and overtax”, the proposed balanced budget amendment failed to pass the vote in the House today. The Conservative Congress members have spent months seeking support for […]
