FEAR MONGERING ....More to come

I got this in an email:

Today, Obama wrote in an op-ed piece in the Washington Post that if Congress does not pass his "stimulus" package, and do so right away, "Our nation will slip deeper into a crisis that, at some point, we may not be able to reverse." "Wow," I thought when I read this, "The stimulus bill must contain some really important stuff if it's critical to the survival of our country! I better take a closer look. Maybe the guy is really onto something." So, I did some internet research and here is just some of the massive spending proposed in the bill:

-- $50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts
-- $380 million for the Women, Infants & Children welfare program
-- $300 million in grants to combat violence against women
-- $1.2 billion to provide "youth" with summer jobs
-- $2.4 billion for "neighborhood stabilization" activities
-- $650 million for digital TV coupons
-- $150 million for the Smithsonian
-- $34 million to renovate the Dept. of Commerce headquarters
-- $500 million for improvements to the National Institute of Health facility
-- $44 million for repairs to the Dept. of Agriculture's headquarters
-- $350 million for agriculture department computers
-- $88 million to move (that's right, move) the Public Health Service into a new building.
-- $1 billion for the Census Bureau
-- $89 billion for Medicaid
-- $30 billion for COBRA extensions
-- $36 billion for expanded unemployment
-- $20 billion for food stamps
-- $850 million for Amtrak
-- $87 million for a "polar ice breaking ship" (What about the ice caps melting because of global warming?)
-- $1.7 million for the National Park Service
-- $55 million for the Historic Preservation Fund
-- $7.6 million for the Rural Advancement Program
-- $150 million for "agricultural commodity purchases"
-- $150 million for producers of livestock, farm-raised fish and honey bees
-- $160 million for paid volunteers (what is a "paid volunteer"?) at the Corporation for National and Community Service



Are we really to believe Obama that we may not be able to reverse our country's slide if he and Congress are prevented from ramming all this pork down our throats? And, by the way, what happened to Obama's pledge to end pork barrel spending?

Another interesting tidbit: Obama said that one of the reasons Congress must pass the stimulus bill, and must pass it NOW, is to end our dependence on foreign oil. What is astonishing is that he made this proclamation about energy independence less than 24 hours after his new interior secretary canceled the oil and gas leases on 77 parcels of federal land.


We are only two weeks into this guy's term and already he and his party are out of control.

The White House - Press Office - Executive Order: Establishment of the White House Office of Urban Affairs

So Obama is simply doing what he knows. He's declared himself to be nothing more than a NATIONAL COMMUNITY ORGANIZER.
 
... "Section 1.  Policy.  About 80 percent of Americans live in urban areas, and the economic health and social vitality of our urban communities are critically important to the prosperity and quality of life for Americans."
.
.
.
to provide leadership for and coordinate the development of the policy agenda for urban America across executive departments and agencies;

 (b)  to coordinate all aspects of urban policy;

.
.
...

 
 
 
Apparently the rest of the county can pound sand.  Thank God.

American Thinker: The Law Liberals Always Break

I already think like that. I just wish I could write like that.

 a false view of human nature as perfectible, if only the right
 political arrangements exist."

A thought on the 'Fairness Doctrine'

 
Memo to Bill Clinton, et al:
 
STFU
 
 
I've about had it with hearing you people whine about the 'Fairness Doctrine'.  It's sickingly amusing to hear Clinton saying, "...you know, Rush Limbaugh is fairly entertaining even when he is saying things that I think are ridiculous...."
 
Well look who's calling the kettle black.
 
 
You mess with my AM radio and we're gonna have words.
 
 
DO YOU HEAR ME?

Henrietta et al are the people the Joe the Plumbers will be 'spreading their wealth' to

Henrietta Hughes, et al, are the people the Joe the Plumbers will be 'spreading their wealth' to.
 
A few years ago my sister (not a rich person by any means) took in a homeless family off the side of the road (central Florida).
 
A man, wife, three kids (white folks, not that it's important to the story). Took them home, cleaned them up, fed and housed them for weeks. Over 2 or 3 months she took them out, got them clothes. Found them both a job, a place to rent and got the kids in school. She checked on them daily then weekly for a couple of months.
 
Next thing she knew they had rented a TV and some nicer furniture. Then the wife lost her job. So he quit. Said he wasn't working if she wasn't.
 
She saw them on the side of the road not long after.
 
Alas, my sister learned a valuable lesson.
 
Parable, The Lesson of the Butterfly:  You cannot help the butterfly by opening the cocoon for him.
 
By giving Henrietta a house she has learned nothing, except that begging works.
 
And that example will spread across the nation: Begging works.
 
 
My Dad (who grew up in the Great Depression) always says 'If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.'
 
Now it's true!!

Make Congress Give Us A Stimulus Plan that Works!

I just signed a national grassroots-led petition opposing the
Obama/Congress trillion-dollar spending bill. This approach has
failed horribly in the past, and will most certainly cripple the
generations that follow.

Please join me and Grassfire by signing their national
petition opposing the Obama/Congress ever-inflating $1 trillion
government spending plan. When scrutinized this plan more
closely resembles a huge pork-barrel spending spree that will not
stimulate the economy, but rather bury the next generation of
taxpayers in a sea of debt!

In addition to opposing this spending plan, I'm urging the
President and Congress to embrace a proven method to jump-
start our economy--by cutting taxes and putting the "stimulus"
into the hands of taxpayers!

Click here to add your name to the petition:

One Giant Step Toward Socialism

I'm just watching in wonder as our country slides into the abyss. 

 

 

STIMULUS DEAL REACHED? $780,000,000,000.00 

 

Well praise the Lord and pass the pork. The POTUS and his Congressional band of limo liberals have saved the day. What would we do without them? Why, our country was practically on the verge of total meltdown. The lights were about to go off and our cars almost quit working.

 

 

 

The United States Unemployment Rate 

Source: www.miseryindex.us

The United States Misery Index. The US Misery Index. Misery Index = Unemployment rate + Inflation rate.

    

 

Recessions come and go. It has always been so. Instead of spending a dime, POTUS could walk out into the Rose Garden, stand on one foot, spin around three times and spit in a southerly direction and the recession will STILL abate in 3 to 6 months. This spending boondoggle is an absolute travesty. I HOPE you realize that the CHANGE you sought has sold out our FUTURE for generations.
