Debt Ceiling???

April 22, 2011

I have seen many reports that the Democrats are SCREAMING that if the debt ceiling does not get raised, then the economy is going to crash and every bad thing that happens can be blamed on the Republicans.

OK, let’s say that I, and the rest of the American Public, agree.  If the debt ceiling does NOT get raised, then the economy will enter a second recession, or worse a depression..  OK.

Then I believe that the Republicans should agree with raising the debt ceiling!!

But…..what if I disagree?  What if , I say that if we do NOT control the spending of the Government of the United States of America, then NOTHING will help us avoid the slow death that is coming……courtesy of Obama’s death panel….because it will become too expensive to save the patient, that is the USA.

I think I have a solution that will satisfy BOTH beliefs!!!

I think that the Republicans should agree to raise the debt ceiling, with NO conditions!!!  Then, ANYTHING that happens after that IS the President’s, and by default the Democrats, fault!!!  If you think that things are not going to get worse from here, I think you are delusional.

P.S. – I think the Republicans should raise the debt ceiling……………..

………….by $1!!!!!!

Now, it is the President’s fault!!!  He did not say how MUCH he wanted it raised by!!  Because, he has NO idea how to lead!!!

Irony…. (reposted with updates)

January 27, 2011

Does anyone else find it ironic, that now that the Republicans in the House of Representatives are going to hold a vote to REPEAL ObamaCare, the only things the Democrats can talk about is Jobs? (UPDATE:  The House has passed the repeal of ObamaCare, now it is up to the Senate.)

Let me get this straight. 

You, the Democrats, worked for almost 2 full years to jam ObamaCare down our, the American Public, throats against the will of a majority of us.  This is during the longest period of 9%+ unemployment in the history of the United States of America.  And now you want to say do not worry about the JOB KILLING provisions and uncertainty contained in the 2,000+ pages of a bill that NO ONE has read, worry about the economy and jobs.  Huhhhhh?

Seriously, at this point there have been 111 organizations that represent more than 1 million Americans that have been granted a waiver from complying with ObamaCare.  (UPDATE #1:  As of December 3, 2010:  The number has increased to 222 organizations and more than 1.5 million Americans, the HHS summary.  That is a 100% increase in the approved waivers, in 3 weeks!!)  (UPDATE#2 : As of January 27, 2011:  The number has increased to 733 organizations  and more than 2.1 million Americans. More than a 300% increase in 8 weeks!!)  The White House will not say how many have applied or how many are planning on applying.  So by my calculations, we have at least 111 people that have wasted spent time applying and we have at least 1 government employee reviewing the applications.  This is being generous on both counts, as I imagine that there at least 20 people in the government and at least 5 people involved in the private sector per application.  So you see, the Democrats are creating jobs!!

To the Democrats:  You have had more than 18 months of 9%+ unemployment to concentrate on jobs and the economy, and have only damaged or ignored both.  For examples, examine the off shore drilling moratorium that you have enacted, or the Obamacare fiasco that NO ONE in the world knows how it will be implemented, but most economists agree that it puts a strain on new hiring.  I suggest you sit down and learn something about how the real world, ie. not D.C., works!!

To the Republicans:  REPEAL the farce that is ObamaCare!!

I welcome any proof that the policies enacted by the Democrats, in the last two years, has created ANY jobs, not related to government.

The Red state/Blue state question???

August 3, 2010

I always wondered about the colors that depict the states leaning towards the Democrats and the states leaning towards the Republicans during Election reporting.  Especially on Network News or MSM.  And how did they all come to use the same colors??

After revelations about the JournoList, as revealed on the Daily Caller, I think all questions are more relevant.

Why did the Democrats get to be Blue??

Why did the Republicans end up with Red??

Could this be a subliminal suggestion to the masses to try and shape their responses??

Here are a couple of excerpts from Color Psychology:

Blue – Blue is described as a favorite color by many people and is the color most preferred by men.  Blue calls to mind feelings of calmness or serenity. It is often described as peaceful, tranquil, secure, and orderly.

Red – Red is a bright, warm color that evokes strong emotions.  Red is also considered an intense, or even angry, color that creates feelings of excitement or intensity.

Who picked these colors?? and why??  What were their intentions??

Should we change these colors to be more neutral??  Perhaps the Democrats can keep blue, but maybe Republicans can pick….green? 

Remember I am not a Psychologist, but I could play one on TV.  Provided they would pay me, of course.

Senator Kent Conrad is an IDIOT

January 21, 2010

Well which is it?  Is this the worst recession that the United States has had since The Great Depression or is it WORSE than that????    Huhh???

The following is a quote from Senator Kent Conrad, DEMOCRAT from North Dakota, on January 21, 2010.  That is the day after Scott Brown, a Republican, was elected to the Senate in the state of Massachusetts.  You know, the most democrat state in the most democrat region of the United States.

“I think part of the problem is the agenda itself,” said Conrad, who doesn’t face voters again until 2012. Instead of spending so much time on health care reform, Conrad said Democrats should have focused first on reducing the national debt and a bipartisan energy bill — and that President Barack Obama should have done a better job of explaining that the economic situation he inherited was “far worse” than he’d originally thought.(My emphasis)

The following is a quote from President-Elect Obama, The One, on January 11, 2009.

“Whether it’s retail sales, manufacturing, all of the indicators show that we are in the worst recession since the Great Depression,” Obama said on ABC. (My emphasis)

No, Senator Conrad, the problem IS the agenda, and that is why the American people are going to throw all of you lying politicians out of office as soon as we can.  You STILL do NOT get it!!!!!

Call me Skeptical

November 18, 2009

Let’s say that the House Health Bill that has passed is GREAT for America.  And let’s say that the estimate that has been made is perfect and that is what the Bill WILL cost.  Hoorah!!!!!  End of story!!  Congratulations are due to the Democrats and LONE Republican that voted FOR the Bill.

What if…??????

What if they are WRONG?  I know, I know, congress has NEVER been wrong in the past, but…..What if???

Here is another solution, as opposed to the one I wrote here.  Put an Amendment in the Bill that states:

IF the cost is greater than the accepted estimate, then the money to pay the excess cost first comes from the Representatives and Senators that voted FOR the Bill.  This can come from their salary, savings, investments, or estates, whether or not they are still in those positions.  NO money, above the accepted estimate, will come from any place other than the ones who voted FOR the Bill until they, or their estates, have $0 in assets.  Any money that they have donated or given away is also subject to seizure, this includes spouses money, heirs money, charity, loan payments, or political activities.

Let me know what you think.

P.S. Send a pink slip to your representatives here.

National Health Care

August 3, 2009

I have a question for ANYONE that feels that the “Government” should be invoved in Health Care in this country. 

I will ask it in a moment, but first I want to clarify some things.  Currently, the Obama administration, the Democrats in congress and the Democrats in the Senate are telling us that the public is clamoring for a solution, and that their solution (National Health Care) is the ONLY way to solve the problem.  They are ignoring the polls where some 80% of the public is happy with their coverage, or the FACT that the United States has the BEST medical care in the WORLD.

I am NOT saying that the system should not be improved.  I feel that there is too much inefficiency and costs are out of control.  But, I also feel that the involvement of the government WILL make the system worse and COST way too much.  Probably more than the $1 Trillion that has been thrown around.  If someone can show me ONE government program that has not gone over budget, I WILL show many that have.  For example, Social Security (projected to bankrupt in my lifetime), Medicare (I have NEVER heard anyone complain about this program…NOT), Medicaid (I have NEVER heard anyone complain about this program…NOT) and how about Cash-for-Clunkers (that budget, from the administration, did NOT last two weeks), there are many others.  So, now WE are supposed to trust them on this one.  I am SORRY, I cannot.

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???

Please do not believe that the Democrats will forever run the White House, Congress, and the Senate.  And do not think that the coverages will NOT change with each change in party.  Let me make some observations.  Abortions – depends who makes the decision (Pro-life or Pro-choice).  Stem Cell therapies – depends who makes the decision (It was only 7 months ago that these were frowned upon).  Cancer treatments – maybe the patient does not have a good probability of survival, why spend the money?  I do not want a bureaucrat making those decisions for anyone in MY family!!

Will Chris Dodd (just diagnosed with Prostate Cancer) let ME decide what treatment he should get??  I will BET anyone, any amount of money that he will NOT.  I do not want HIM to make that decision for ME, or anyone in my family, either!!!!
