Van Jones finally agrees with the Tea Party!!!

September 28, 2010

In a September 2010 interview with Think Progress, Van Jones FINALLY states the EXACT same reasons I used, when I voiced opposition to National Healthcare. 

Here is my post from August 2009, where I ask the question,  “If the National Health Care system gets enacted, are you going to like the National Health Care system when Republicans get to make the decisions about coverage???”

And Van Jones, in the interview states:

“JONES: If you think things are bad now, what will happen when the people are screaming and yelling at these Tea Party events are actually in charge of your government, and in charge of your life, and in charge of your kids’ future? That is, maybe you have some hope fatigue, but you got a lot of reason to be fearful enough I think to stay involved and to get involved. I don’t think you want the Tea Party running your community, running your family, running your government.”

Hey, Van Jones, if you replace the Tea Party, in your statement above, with the word Democrat, you would have echoed my thoughts.

THANK YOU Mr. Van Jones!!  I hope that every American thinks about our question.  That should be the SECOND question that everyone should always ask, when considering a new law.  The FIRST question should ALWAYS be, “Is this law CONSTITUTIONAL?”  I understand that Van Jones does NOT want the “Tea Party” running the government, but as I stated in my earlier post, there is NO way that the Democrats were going to stay in power forever, just as there is NO way that the conservatives will stay in power forever, either. 

Are YOU going to still want the same laws, when the side YOU do NOT agree with, is in charge of those laws? 

I just want to mention another “regulation” that the Obama Administration is trying to enact.  Net Neutrality.  Not only do I think that it FAILS the FIRST question, but I think both sides (remember BIPARTISANSHIP) can agree that they will NOT like this “regulation” when the other side gets to enforce it!!!

Perhaps, Van Jones should consider the unintended consequences of enacting his dream!!!

No Specific Ideas…

September 21, 2010

Today, the Anointed One “claimed” that the “Tea Party” does not have any SPECIFIC IDEAS when it comes to their desires to lower Government spending and/or cut taxes. 

First, I wat to state that there is not a “Tea Party”, per se.  There is a (large) group of American Citizens that do NOT like the  current direction of the United States, specifically the trend towards a Socialist government that controls almost EVERY aspect of its citizens lives.  They believe that Government is NOT the solution to every problem that we face.  They desire lower taxes, more freedom (including the freedom to fail), and they want to feel safe in a dangerous world. 

Now, as for the “allegation” that the “Tea Party” does not have any specific ideas about spending.  Give me a minute, I want to make sure that I say this in such a way that The One may finally understand what I am saying.

Let me be clear,  I want the government to pull out the books from way back in 2008.  Then I want them to spend EXACTLY what they spent, on EXACTLY what they spent it on!!!! 

This will be a good place to start.  If the President does NOT like these ideas, I will readily give him a choice.  HE can pick ANY year, BEFORE he became the leader of the FREE WORLD, and use that year as the spending EXAMPLE!!!  Do not change the amount or the destination of the spending!!!  THEN we can work on other ideas for reducing spending.

I hope I have been CLEAR.  Any questions, Mr. President??
