Ronald Reagan Quote of the Day

rr 2The American people are determined, I believe, to have actions on the economic problems that we face. They’re going to find out that we’re listening to them.

Bush Approach to Government – Noise Based on Ignorance

Did Ronald Reagan rebuke Bush’s light bulb banning Act through premonition?

“Those loud voices that are occasionally heard charging that the Government is trying to solve a security problem by throwing money at it are nothing more than noise based on ignorance.”

Not really, all big government Republicans seek to enforce Democratic policy as long as they get credit for it in the eyes of the elite.

Reagan was right on so many things, and his efforts in the ’80’s threw a wrench in the establishment’s machine. The Energy Independence Security Act of 2007 signed by G.W. Bush is now banning your light bulb. We’ve spent a lot of money for “security” when there is little supply of either.

But this quote could be used for nearly all of Bush’s spending. Big government Republicans no longer need apply, and those who have tricked their constituents are going to have a tough road in 2014, and for many years to come.

We need another Reagan, a person who understands the people, not one who wishes to silence them, or rule over them.

Blame the Spending-Psychoneurotic Democrats

“Waaaah! We are going to go over the cliff and it’s the Republican’s fault because they won’t give us more of your money. Waaaah!” whines Harry Reid.

Yet another interesting point that should be on the front page of the nation’s papers: Did you know that there are more women head of households in the group of people Obama and Reid want to target than men head of households? Since the census only has data from $200,000 and over, we can’t be completely sure, but since when has the nation’s propaganda arm of the administration cared about being completely sure? In a nation with the goal of total equality, the headlines should read, Obama Proposes Higher Taxes on $250,000 Income and Higher; American Women and Children Hardest Hit.

Ahh, to dream…

Meanwhile, Bill Kristol shows how out of touch he is by saying, “You know, a lot of the tea party guys don’t care that much if a few millionaires pay a couple percent more in taxes, honestly.”

Then the tea party folks were the only ones who stood firm on principle, and sent Boehner’s plan to raise taxes on millionaires to the dust bin.

Huh. Go figure.

It’s good to hear that John Boehner has been likened to that of a dictator, even if for the wrong reasons.  Considering his, ‘my way or the highway’ approach to leadership, John’s lifetime achievement award will consist of a plaque inscribed with the words, “Because I said so.”  Reid says that if Johnny-boy just would’ve let the House vote, the millionaire tax hike of ’13 would be able to be ignored in the Senate by now.

Leave Johnny alone, Harry.  He cries sometimes too.

Then of course, who can ignore Timmy Geithner, who just now figured out that not only is a crisis a terrible thing to waste, (oh, we do so miss our Rahm,) it’s even better to scare the piss out of everyone and push the debt ceiling issue in with the, ‘not gonna stop spending’ issue.

I, for once, disagree with Sarah Palin.  I believe we should continue the decades-old tradition of making fun of politicians who disrespect us, and call them names.  Wussies?  Heck yeah.  Add pansies, chickens, cowards, lily-livered, yellow-bellied, weak-kneed, wimpy, and gutless.  We da boss, LaTourette.

But let’s not stop there, call the ones who stood with steel spines and did not back down, courageous, bold, heroic and strong.

Where is the unity?…

So the thug with a suit and tie comes back from Hawaii singing, “Mele Kalikimaka…where’s my money you useless Republicans?”  When, in truth, he gets his money if the House does nothing.

Seriously, I’m certain that this game in Washington DC being played by players of games is extremely offensive to most Americans.  And by Americans, I mean people who love America, not what it has become.

In effect, Obama is threatening, “If you Republicans don’t increase taxes on thousandaires and millionaires and billionaires, I’m going to increase taxes on thousandaires and millionaires and billionaires, we can’t wait.”  And the papers say, “The Republicans wouldn’t raise taxes, so we blame them for raising taxes.”

We are led to believe that the only people who can afford a tax increase make $250,001 and over.  No wait, $400,001 and over.  Well, what about Jack and Diane?

Jack is an engineer in his 40’s.  He met Diane when she was going through nursing school, and she is now working as a neo-natal nurse in one of the nation’s best hospitals. Together, they make about $275,000. They have two kids, one in the first year of college, the other a high school junior. They have a nice home that isn’t near worth what they paid for it, and they have some investments and business interests as well, that are not doing so well in Obama’s economy.

Whatever happens in DC in the next few days, their taxes on both their income and investments are going up. They work 45-60 hours per week each to keep their lifestyle, but in the last few years, the budget has been getting inflated because of the price of gas and food and insurance, and of course college tuition and extras, so they have been drawing a bit heavy on their line of credit at the bank. The line of credit was started when they had the addition put on the house a few years back, and it has swelled from $32,000 to $64,000. Their credit cards have gotten a bit out of control, when the kids were little, it was easy to pay them off every month, but now they have been only paying the minimum.

If the bank increases their line of credit, and they do not stop spending as if the economy is trucking along beautifully, they will hit the increased maximum in no time. Same with the credit cards.

So they talk to one financial advisor  and he tells them they have to either come up with more income, or, risk losing their home and go into bankruptcy.

So, being a fine neo-natal nurse in one of the best hospitals the nation has, Diane picks up a weekly gig teaching nursing students. She now has about $10,000 more income. Jack found a way to increase his income as well, and they make $295,000 per year.

They make more than they ever have, and the economy is the same, and they are spending more, because they have to spend more money when they have less time. Dianne isn’t home two nights a week, and Jack has extra meetings with business interests, so they don’t see much of one another and everybody gets a bite to eat on the fly.

They have been able to put a little more on the credit cards, but there is still a hefty balance, as well as the line of credit sitting there like a lump. But it gains interest.

They go to another financial advisor who shows them how much money flexibility they would have if they didn’t have all the payments. “Make a budget,” he said, “based on your last three months of spending, then cut everything by 5%. Work that budget for three months, and I’ll bet you won’t miss much, then, you can cut another 5%. Then start paying off these cards and loans.”

Pleased with a new goal and a new appreciation for their limits, Jack asked if Diane could quit her extra job. “No,” the financial adviser said, “not yet, you’ll need that income to pay for your new taxes.”

It doesn’t matter if you start at $1 million per year or $87,000, most everybody lives according to their means, until outside forces force them to change their habits. Had Obama cared about Jack and Diane, he wouldn’t force them to reach their debt limit, then take more money from them. Then again, if Obama cared at all for the American people, he wouldn’t have spent their children’s money already.

We are already over the financial cliff. Right now, the Obama administration and Harry Reid are shaking down the American people for more dough. That’s really all they are, thugs in suits and ties. Increasing revenue doesn’t fix the problem, so that is what Obama and Reid are focused on. It doesn’t fix the problem, so that’s why they want it. The only way to fix the problem is to cut spending. But that isn’t even part of the plan.

Increasing taxes on Jack and Diane doesn’t help anyone. They have to pay the tax man instead of the bank or the violinist who could be giving their daughter lessons. The violinist needs the extra income to pay his taxes too, if he could just get out from under his mortgage….

Debt is a killer. It makes life unbearable, because no matter how much you work, you have nothing to show for it. It does not matter how much money you make. Again, it does not matter how much money you make. If you make $30,000 a year, you can go bankrupt just as easily as if you make $2 million a year. You spent the money on God-knows-what, and now you have to pay the bills. And if you don’t stop spending, you will always be a slave to the payments.

The only people in DC that are focusing on the problem are the tea party folks. John Boehner isn’t, neither is Reid or Obama. Some leadership.

Spring will be here in a few months, and Obama will be talking about infrastructure jobs and so on. He’ll be proposing more spending. Jack and Diane won’t dare buy anything new in a very long time, and that is how Obama wants it.

We are a nation enslaved by debt.  The Democrats had both houses of congress and the Presidency from 2009-2011, and now that the people have put responsible people in the House, the Democrats in DC continue to play games with the lives of people who have problems of their own.

So I don’t really care if it’s immature or improper, or the recently accepted term, “hate-speak” I’m going to call the Democrats in DC what they are: thugs, bullies, crooks, felons, liars, tax-cheats, perps, pickpockets, racketeers, swindlers, thieves, highwaymen, malefactors, pervs, immoral, unethical, unscrupulous psycho-neurotics.

It’s the spending, stupid.

The president tweets:

Yet the key to the major problem is the spending.

So to those Democrats, rich and poor who contribute bundles and $3 at a time, don’t come crying to us when he keeps spending more than you can give him.

That is the major problem the American people have with him, and it seems you aren’t catching on to the main problem with his entire administration.

There isn’t enough money to keep Barack Obama in office.

Levin: The Government Is Devouring Society

In Ameritopia, Mark Levin writes about how large the United States Federal Government is. From taxation, spending and debt, to regulations and entitlements, the federal government is now devouring the private sector. It is taking no time at all to quicken it’s pace, and we are being governed by rulers instead of representatives of ourselves.

On May 22nd, Mark stated that the government is devouring our society. It causes one to register a graphic image of a beast tearing our society up and devouring us one by one until one day, we no longer exist as a people.

Mindblowing Graphs That Show America Closer To Greece Than You Think

The has an article explaining the European Debt Crisis in simple graphs. They try to explain what kind of mess Europe is in, and they include America in their graphs. I think the real story here is how close we are to this disaster in Europe.

Our public sector is very large, and some would say that considering the size of our economy, it really isn’t, but we aren’t talking about basic government here, so let’s get real. The fact is that the government is too big, way too big, and this issue comes up this very week. Congress is fighting over a measly stupid over-hyped payroll tax cut for “working families” which amounts to gramma and grampa not getting a cola increase for the third year in a row in their social security checks, just so Obama and the Democrats can call the Republicans tax-hikers. The Republicans are trying to attach the extension of the payroll tax holiday to a freeze, not a cut, a freeze on government pay. Guess who wins? Nobody, and the government keeps on growing.

This graph is amazing because as the CSM points out, the Euro Union has a debt threshold of 60% of GDP. It’s right there in the rules, they make rules that they don’t follow, and apparently we have no one in government who can make this connection here in the States. While the graph is trying to show the irresponsibility of the Eurozone, can we please look in the mirror? Our GDP is 100% of our debt! No way would anyone lend money to us in our households if debt was equal to producible wealth.

Spain is getting rid of their socialists and we have to as well, and stop playing games with words. Obama is a socialist. In the graph, the lines all draw up sharply at about the same time, but look how close we are to Greece! This graph combined with the first should show that we are headed for riots in the streets.

Working under the table will grow in America as soon as the increase in taxes hit.

There could be some good news if Americans go the right way. With the amount of people out of work, there is a decision that has to be made. Either you hold out your hand while the nation drowns in debt, or you open a business, apply a trade, learn a skill, or manufacture something, because right now, America doesn’t produce enough stuff.

Obama Calls America Lazy For The Third Time

What our current President says about America is one of the main reasons most of us cannot wait to vote him out in 2012. The big news today is that ,

“But we’ve been a little bit lazy, I think, over the last couple of decades,’’ the president said. “We’ve kind of taken for granted — well, people will want to come here and we aren’t out there hungry, selling America and trying to attract new business into America.”

Heap that comment

“We have lost our ambition, our imagination, and our willingness to do the things that built the Golden Gate Bridge and Hoover Dam and unleashed all the potential in this country,” he said.

And on top it off with

“People felt opportunities were constricted for the next generation,” he said. “This is a great country that has gotten a little soft. We’re getting back on track. I would not trade our position with anybody on Earth. When you meet these young people who are so talented, they give you confidence they are going to help us figure it out.”

In every instance the President is saying that we, as Americans are not increasing government enough to suit his taste.

Our national debt equals gdp.

Unemployment continues to hover around 9%.

The President wants congress to spend more money, and raise more taxes.

We have to defeat this man and all his cronies in DC.

The Obama That Stole Christmas

The birth of Jesus Christ is supposed to be a joyous celebration filled with giving and love and family and good feelings.  However, with the current mess the country is in due to massive spending, a black cloud hung over the most wonderful time of the year.

The fact that we knew we couldn’t spend a lot for Christmas presents because we were laid off and April 15th looms after what is set to be another tough winter, weighted  our spirits.

The fact that we fought like hell to try to stop all of these massive spending measures all year and we needed rest and knew that we are no longer in a representative republic, and there will be no rest.

The idea that the Christmas Eve vote was going to twist the knife in our backs once again, and there wasn’t a damn thing we could do about it.

Then, finding out that on Christmas Day, some piece of filth tried to kill more Americans over the skies of Detroit, and, swearing off politics for the season, we had to jump back into it.

Then, knowing the tasks that lay ahead for the New Year, many of us had to fast forward our grief so we could face the mountain ahead.

Finding a place to go from our memories of last year and knowing we cannot blot them out, ever, was an assignment that was desperately difficult during that wonderful season.

Many of us suffered from inexplicable chest, neck and back pain and many of us prayed for others who presented with the same.

We prayed during that season for those who did not know what they did, and those that knew exactly what what they did.

We prayed during that season for the one who thinks only of himself and his power and who acts in His name.

But our largest, most significant, most sacred prayer, was to that Child Jesus for His Divine Intervention.

Obama stole our Christmas, we shall try to remember to not allow him to steal our country.
