With the “Health Insurance” vote, it has become clear of the two major parties, there is one party of freedom and one party of totalitarianism. Anyone intellectually honest knows the Constitution prohibits government actions such as this (or the Patriot Act for that matter). To see a document of enumerated, limited powers twisted into the opposite by power-hungry politicians sworn to protect and defend it is disgusting. The Founders are not just spinning in their graves, they have spun so fast they have completely disintegrated. Just like the protections in the Constitution.
So, the United States can now throw out the old flag while Congress throws out the last vestiges of the Constitution. As such, a more modern flag is needed. Several contenders to replace the old “Stars and Stripes” with a more timely flag are shown below.
President Obama has proposed a 1.4 % pay increase for active duty military in 2011. This is the LOWEST since 1973. Nice to know that during a time of rampant inflation, while a war is fought in 2 theatres, our men and women in uniform get a LOWER PAY INCREASE THAN WELFARE RECIPIENTS. — from K.P.L.
When the parasites can vote themselves a bigger bite from the host, they will do so. The law is supposed to protect you and your life from being voted into subservience, but when the law is used instead to steal from a disarmed population, the law has been perverted. Today many people believe the concept of personal responsibility means expecting someone else to pay for you and what you believe you “need.”
Today, the parasites are in control and the parasites have realized they can vote themselves a bigger bite from the host. And the chief parasites in Washington want to maintain control by directing where the rest of the parasites can take their bite based on how you are favored – from the filet portion or the keister.
Great video from Real Clear Politics showing Obama Campaigned against a spending freeze at least four times during the campaign. And yet The Washington Post reports that President Obama will propose a spending freeze in his 2010 State of the Union Address.
Copying another well known hypocrite – Jim Jeffords from Vermont – Arlen Specter abandoned his principles in order to retain power. Well, he never really had principles except being power-hungry, so it was difficult for him to abandon them, but he choose the only route he could to try to maintain his tenuous grip on power but lost his slight remaining grip on reality in the process.
After stating he would not switch parties in a March 17, 2009 interview, today he said he would switch parties:
[Democrats] are trying very hard for the 60th vote. Got to give them credit for trying. But the answer is no. … I am staying a Republican because I think I have an important role, a more important role, to play there. The United States very desperately needs a two-party system. That’s the basis of politics in America. – March 17, 2009
You have to hand it to him, he values POWER over your lives and mine over anything else. Hope he enjoys it for the next 18 months. A disgraceful end to a disgraceful political career.
Since the White House seems to be in need of economic advice, here are a few suggestions that would help to turn things around quickly. Items #1 and #2 would not cost anything.
1. Eliminate Mark to Market – for people holding until the asset matures, mark to market is crazy.
2. Reinstate the uptick rule in order to restore some balance to the market.
3. Instead of spending more than $1.2 trillion on questionable projects, much of which won’t be spent for years, stop collecting income taxes for 2009. Federal Revenue in 2007 was approximately $2.5 trillion with individual income taxes making up a bit over 40% of that. So, drop the stimulus and put the money right back in everyone’s pocket this week. Save $200 billion, and let the citizens of the company keep their own money.
4. Talk about some of the positives: lower fuel costs, productivity and the like.
