Your Week In Review #4
It was another exciting week of mud wrestling in Foggy Bottom. Progress? Did you expect anything from the Do Nothing Party? They just got a week closer to what they see as "The Big Event," their possible reelection chances. Are you starting to figure that out yet? All of this has very little to do with “We, the People…” and everything to do with “They, Themselves…” To them we don’t have any skin in the game except our tax dollars.
Speaking of tax dollars, there is a quiz today about spending. It’s relatively easy so I’ll give you a cheat sheet to use. Just try to imagine yourself picking the worst possible answer to each question. You’ll do well I’m sure though there is one trick question so watch it;
Grab a Sharp Pencil Or Maybe A Stick
- Dirty Spending Secrets
Take the Dirty Spending Secrets test to see if you can detect five of the dirty spending secrets Washington doesn't want you to know . . .
It was quiet on the Debbie Downer front so maybe they finally found a muzzle to fit her. Another bureaucratic tax eating machine seems to be forming with the advent of The Food Police. You missed it? Better catch up because they’ll be coming to your kitchen in a jiffy. They may even Deputize Moochelle Obama and make her the honorary sheriff. The problem is in finding a saddle to fit. When the federal government starts intruding into your kitchen, hasn’t that stretched the meaning of Big Brother a bit too far? I’ll write Orsen Welles and ask. He died? From choking on his Coco Puffs? Oh my…
Drop Those Cornflakes Mom!
Also running at a furious gallop was the Obama administration trying to figure out who was going to be thrown under the “Operation Fast & Furious” and “Project Runner” bus. Andrew Traver, the anti-gun nut from Chicago, was summoned to the hill. Hopefully they don’t think his stalled nomination has a chance of going anywhere. The ATF is already a huge mess with fingers pointing every which way about how in the world such large gun running operations could be authorized without anyone authorizing them. Huh? That’s right. It was like listening to Sergeant Schultz, "I know nothing, I see nothing, I hear nothing, I did nothing…” What I know is that I smell a cover up that they seem to want to perpetuate rather than put on their big boy panties and fess up.
Stone Walling? Was Issa Pissed At Holder At The End Of The Video Or What?
Jack Up The Bus Some More
Can’t reality be a cruel thing to face? The economy is in the dumps and unemployment ticked up again. Obama at first, came to the rescue with the ATM/Kiosk Boogie Man in tow to explain how technology was the real enemy. Then, obviously becoming the butt of the many jokes that were being made about his ignorance, he reversed course.
One week he appears on the No Business Reporting The News Channel (NBC) and says, "There are some structural issues with our economy where a lot of businesses have learned to become much more efficient with a lot fewer workers. You see it when you go to a bank and you use an ATM, you don’t go to a bank teller, or you go to the airport and you’re using a kiosk instead of checking in at the gate.”
Then this past week he does the now famous Obama Flip Flop and in his weekly radio address he states that automation creates jobs. Most people in the business world already know that. At times this guy is like watching a big bass flop around on the bottom of my john boat.
The Wake Up Call Can Be Found Here
They continued to have their smoke and mirrors talks in private concerning the deficit One of the things that just reared its ugly little head to the public was the Do Nothing Party throwing not only taxes on the table but they want to have another stimulus program as part of any deal. Are these people nuts? That’s all we need. More tax payer spending to invest in shovel ready projects that aren’t shovel ready? Where's the transparency we were promised?
The next time you’re sitting at your dining room table staring at that growing stack of bills give yourself a reality check, a pinch won’t do, and go back and read the facts of what we are facing.
FACTS!!! Please don't confuse me!!!
In closing, as I was sitting here writing this, who should appear on the TV? Yeah, you guessed it - Obama. This is what he said in a nut shell. His exact words were, "We can't reduce our spending as a way to prosperity." That we can't reduce the national debt by reducing spending? Obviously he and I aren't living on the same planet. His view is still stimulating the economy by spending more of our tax dollars on nonsense. So starting today, he will enter into the impasse on breaking the stalemate on reducing spending. In view of what I just watched hm say it will probably get worse rather than better.
We tried it his way when the Do Nothing Party had control of The Whine House and both houses of Congress. It didn't work. It failed. The last Stimupork bill was a failure. The excessive spending has produced no results, other than to go down in history as the largest spending spree ever witnessed in this nation. Nuff said?
That's recap of last week. I can hardly wait for the coming events this week will surely bring.
