Tag Archives: TRILLION DOLLAR GIVE A WAY

Those that can … do! Those that can’t … become Community Organizers & Economists!

Remember when the reference to those who can’t was directed to those entering the teaching profession.  Given the state of education today, it appears that this was an apt quip.

Looking at our economy, the $14 trillion dollar debt fast approaching, the recession, 17% unemployment (as high as 50% in some areas), and the lack of new jobs being created in the private sector, it is clear that Barack Obama and Paul Krugman’s names must also be added to the list of those who can’t.

Team Obama’s insistence on impaling our economy on  Kruganomics (Keynesian economics on steroids) has pushed the US so close to the edge that we are close to falling into a death spiral … complements of our two Nobel Prize numskulls!

BTW, in addition to Obama and Krugman both having the ignominious distinction of having a Nobel Prize (the new standard of non-accomplishment & failure), neither one has ever held a real job.  These men are  academics who never created a job or taken the necessary risks needed to created a business.

All of which leads me to recommendations  I made for strengthening the economy last year.  These recommendations are just as needed today as they were during June ’09 …  even more so!

They begin with eliminating all Czars Obama created and in their place naming a Common Sense Czar.  (OK, so that was said tongue in cheek, however the our country’s needs are real.)

What exactly would the Common Sense Czar ‘s (hereinafter referred to as the  CSC) duties entail? The CSC’s first actions would be to:

  • Get rid of all redundant and unnecessary Czars … that’s about 14 or 15 of the Czars that I can see.
  • Dictate that Congress can no longer pass legislation, like the $787 billion “stimulus bill” without reading it first!
  • Immediately get the government out of the car business.
  • Insist that all credit card companies cap their interest rates to consumers at 13% or dictate that no bank can charge consumers more that 4 times the rate that they pay for SAVINGS ACCOUNTS!  Banks paying consumers 5%  for their saving accounts get to charge as much as 20% on credit cards . . . banks paying 2% on savings can only 8% on their credit cards.
  • Demand that every government agency look at their budgets and cut 10% … no make that 15% . .. cutting 10% is easy, 15% takes a little effort.
  • Dictate that every member of Congress  and in the executive branch take a 10% cut in their salaries, since We the People are being asked to sacrifice and live with less, they should lead by example … Mr. Obama that means you.
  • Appoint a government Expense Review Dept to go over the expenses that our leaders and representatives are charging the taxpayers. Expenses found to be unnecessary or frivolous would have to be reimbursed to the taxpayers.  Nancy, that  means no more trips to see the Pope.  Barack you and the little lady will have to forget trips to see Broadway show, or fly overs NY City for a photo op, just for the heck of it.

  • Demand that any member of a finance or banking related committee MUST TAKE a course in business 101 before passing another piece of legislation.  Additionally, they must demonstrate that they could operate a lemonade stand and make a profit!
  • Demand that every member of legislative & executive branches take a refresher course  in political science and the Constitution. They would  have to pass a test with a grade no lower than C before they enacting any new legislation!

A Review of the Top 7 Obama Lies in 2009

There are lies and then there are damnable lies.

Number 1 –

Barack Hussein Obama is eligible to hold the office of POTUS. BHO has never been eligible to be President.  His desire for truth and transparency in government is selectively applied; but never as it applies to any record that verifies he is a Natural Born Citizen.  On the first day in office he issued his first executive order that specified that all of HIS personal records were to be withheld from the public!

Here’s a partial list of what we still can’t see:  (more here)

  1. Certified copy of original birth certificate
  2. Columbia University transcripts and thesis
  3. Occidental College Transcripts
  4. Campaign donor analysis requested by 7 major watchdog groups
  5. Harvard University transcripts
  6. Illinois State Senate records and schedule
  7. Law practice client list and billing records/summary
  8. Locations and names of all half-siblings and step-mothers
  9. Medical records (only the one page summary released so far)
  10. Parent’s marriage Certificate
  11. Record of baptism
  12. Selective Service registration records
  13. Schedules for trips outside of the United States before 2007
  14. List of all campaign workers that are lobbyists
  15. Punahou grade school records

Whether BHO was born in Kenya or Hawaii is immaterial.  What counts is his citizenship status on the day he was born! His Kenyan father was a British subject and as such British citizenship was passed onto Barack.  His mother was too young to confer her citizenship status on her son. The fact that BHO admits to being a dual citizen (opps… make that Citizen of the World) automatically disqualifies him as well.  To date, World Net Daily has  estimated that BHO and his team of obscurers of fact have spent 1.7 million keeping the truth hidden. So much for truth and transparency!


Number 2 –

If BHO was elected he would govern as a moderate and in a bipartisan manner.  Well, the jokes on all the fools who believed that trash.

Obama’s policies are extreme by any measure. Let’s see Obama has given us TARP, passed without anyone in Congress having read the bill.  We have multiple czars (34 at last count?) that act as his shadow government, we’ve witnessed the government takeover of the banking industry, most of the US auto industry, bailouts for Wall Street and nothing for small business and Main Street.  The coup de grâce is Obama’s healthcare legislation despised by 85% of Americans who want change but not this boondoggle!  If this guy isn’t a radical, who is?  The question in 2010 isn’t, “will the corrupt Dems  lose seats in Congress?”  The question is, “How many seats will be lost?”

Number 3 –

Obama’s election would change the world’s view of America … our enemies would suddenly put down their spears and pick up ploughshares because of the color of Obama’s skin … and the choir sang Amen!   Let’s see, South American dictator Hugo Chavez, who thought Bush left a sulfur smell when he talked at the United Nations finds Obama leaves that same sulfur smell behind.  The Iranians have just flipped Obama “the bird”  when it comes to their nuclear program.  They have every intention of enriching nuclear fuel.  Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s latest notice to Obama is simple, “try and stop us!”

And while we are at it, there are many people in Europe who are finally coming to see what an empty suit BHO really is.  Obama-mania is finally over and the Obama hangover has set in! The Brits call him President Pantywaist!

Number 4 –

Race relations in this country were going to improve. Not only haven’t race relations improved, they have gotten worse.  Of course, yelling “racist” every time anyone with lighter skin than BHO holds an opposing view hasn’t helped.  In fact, the race card has been played so many times it no longer shocks anyone … it does quite the opposite including “pissing” people off.

Number 5 –

Obama became our first black President.  Come on now, not only isn’t he our first black president he isn’t even the first man in office whose bi-racial background was known.  According to Diversity Inc. not only isn’t Obama our first mixed race president at least five other presidents came from mixed race backgrounds.  Historian Leroy Vaughn, author of Black People and Their Place in World History state emphatically that Thomas Jefferson was the nation’s first black president.

Number 6 –

Obama is a great orator.  Ah, not exactly.  This is true, but only as long as BHO has his teleprompter with him.  Ever hear him try to speak without his teleprompter?  He sounds like he is barely educable. Remember this golden oldie?

Number – 7

If Obama were elected, blacks and other minorities would thrive and advance.  With the jobless rate over 10% in middle class communities, the black unemployment rate is 15.6 percent today, as opposed to 11.9 percent in December 2008, over 50 percent higher than the white unemployment rate.

Rep. Maxine Waters made it clear that the caucus could cause trouble for future Democratic bills by voting with the Republicans. The protest was in response to what the CBC considers to be a blatant disregard for African American issues by the Obama Administration.




EXPORTING GREEN JOBS TO CHINA ON OUR TAX DOLLARS … DAILY KOS WRONG ON JUST ‘BOUT EVERYTHING FINALLY GETS SOMETHING RIGHT!

(H/T DAILY KOS! WHO KNEW???)

See, I was over at the ‘ultra left into the stratosphere Daily Kos” about to comment on why their analysis on why the Dems lost so badly in the November mid-term elections  was sooo wrong, when I found this.  Hard to believe, but even the NY Times is right on this issue.  Do you think hell is freezing over?

Let me just say, if this doesn’t piss you off, nothing will!  Read on and get ready to vote  all the bums out that voted for the stimulus … Democrat or Republican … get ’em out and quickly before they can do any more damage to our economy!

2000 More Green Jobs Sent to China On Our Stimulus Dollar

by Muskegon Critic

Wed Nov 04, 2009 at 04:50:32 PM PST

I guarantee, if green jobs keep flying out the door, America’s support for alternative energy is going to collapse.

I seem to remember some very expensive, and possibly not expensive enough, Stimulus Package that was meant to create jobs. And not just any jobs. Oh no. Green jobs. Sustainable jobs.

And as it turns out, it’s working!

The stimulus package is creating jobs in the green manufacturing sector.

Just, not here.

A week ago I was on the warpath about a locally incubated company that used State and Federal research grants and used Muskegon’s multi-million dollar state of the art research and tech incubator facilities to develop their wind generator. Then they turned around and took 2.7 million dollars from Canada as a “grant” to move their factory, and 200 jobs, and their research and development arm, to Windsor, Canada.

Then RLMillersent me an article from the New York Times that made my eyeballs explode…  READ ON

HEY… WHERE’S OBAMA’S COMMON SENSE CZAR?

Or… maybe we need a Czar to manage all the Czars… all those appointees not elected, vetted, or scrutinized.  If you’ve lost count of the number of Czars we now have… 16, this is from Pink Elephant Pundit:

  • Drug Czar: Gil Kerlikowske, former Seattle police chief
  • Energy and Environment Czar: Carol Browner
  • Homeland Security Czar: John Brennan
  • Health Czar: Nancy-Ann DeParle
  • Urban Affairs Czar: Adolfo Carrion, Jr.
  • Economic Czar: Paul A. Volcker
  • Regulatory Czar: Cass R. Sunstein
  • Technology Czar: Vivek Kundra
  • Government Performance Czar: Jeffrey Zients
  • Border Czar: Alan Bersin
  • WMD Policy Czar: Gary Samore
  • Intelligence Czar (Director of National Intelligence): Dennis Blair
  • Car Czar: Steven Rattner
  • Pay Czar: Kenneth R. Feinberg
  • Great Lakes Czar: Cameron Davis
  • Cyber Czar: TBA

Let’s talk a little more about this. Know how many Czars Reagan had? One. Bush 41? One. Clinton? Three. Dubya? Four.

Obama has already QUADRUPLED that. And since most of these positions are already covered by Secretaries, the overlap is wasteful.

And some are just inane (seriously, A GREAT LAKES CZAR? What is a Great Lakes Czar? Overlord of the Catfish? I don’t understand). Scariest part? Czars have no one to answer to but Obama. Know how much they are in control of? $1.7 TRILLION. Yeah. (emphasis mine)

Ah yes, but let’s get back to the Common Sense Czar, my personal choice for the next Czar in ObamaLand.  What exactly would the Common Sense Czar ‘s (hereinafter referred to as the  CSC) duties entail? Since Czars apparently have powers not granted under the Constitution and are free to act as they please the CSC’s first actions would be to:

  • Get rid of all redundant and unnecessary Czars … that’s about 14 or 15 of the Czars that I can see.
  • Dictate that Congress can no longer pass legislation, like the $787 billion “stimulus bill” without reading it first!
  • Immediately get the government out of the car business before this becomes Obama’s economic Viet Nam
  • Insist that all credit card companies cap their interest rates to consumers at 13% or dictate that no bank can charge consumers more that 4 times the rate that they pay for SAVINGS ACCOUNTS!  Banks paying consumers 5%  for their saving accounts get to charge as much as 20% on credit cards . . . banks paying 2% on savings can only 8% on their credit cards.
  • Demand that every government agency look at their budgets and cut 10% … no make that 15% . .. cutting 10% is easy, 15% takes a little effort.
  • Dictate that every member of Congress  and in the executive branch take a 10% cut in their salaries, since We the People are being asked to sacrifice and live with less, they should lead by example … Mr. Obama that means you.
  • Appoint a government Expense Review Czar to go over the expenses that our leaders and representatives are charging the taxpayers.  Expenses found to be unnecessary or frivolous would have to be reimbursed to the taxpayers.  That means no more trips to see the Pope,  or trips to see Broadway show, or fly overs NY City for a photo op, just for the heck of it.
  • Demand that any member of a finance or banking related committee MUST TAKE a course in economics 101 before passing another piece of legislation.  Additionally, they must demonstrate that they could operate a lemonade stand and make a profit!
  • Demand that every member of legislative & executive branches take a refresher course  in political science and the Constitution. They would  have to pass a test with a grade no lower than C before they enacting any new legislation!


THE FEDERAL RESERVE HANDS OUT TRILLIONS DOLLARS IN SECRET- WHERE IS THE MSM?

Most of us have long since given up asking where the MSM is when it comes to Obama, but what is their excuse for not reporting this story? They are probably too busy figuring out what they intend to wear at all the Obama inaugural parties. What’s the MSM’s excuse for not reporting about the Federal Reserve giving away trillions of dollars and doing so in secrecy?

Congress, (see list at end of post) voting against the will of the people, approves $770 billion for a Wall Street rescue plan and there’s plenty in the news, but the Fed is handing out trillions of our tax dollars and coverage is almost non-existent.

I caught the tail end of ABC’s 20/20 on Friday when consumer reporter John Stossel reported on the Fed’s secret give aways at the end of the program.

Give Me a Break – The Government Bailout

It’s bad enough that politicians are giving out billions of your tax dollars to banks that made bad decisions — thereby rewarding failure — and encouraging yet more failure. But now it’s worse: the Fed has put $5 trillion of your dollars at risk, quietly guaranteeing loans to banks. The Fed won’t name most of the banks, saying that disclosure might create a panic. The government also will not reveal what collateral they got in return for giving banks your money. Basically, a handful of politicians have unlimited discretion over trillions of your dollars. John Stossel says ”Give Me a Break.”

This is story being reported around the edges and, as usual, on blogs on the Internet. Why? Why isn’t anyone following the money?

According to an original post by Mike Adams at Natural News and also here on Sodahead:

In 1942, German intelligence officers rounded up skilled Jewish prisoners and launched Operation Bernhardt, a clever scheme designed to counterfeit hundreds of millions of dollars worth of British Pounds and destroy the British economy by flooding it with counterfeit money. Located in the Sachsenhausen concentration camp, Operation Bernhardt was, even by modern standards, a runaway success that resulted in the creation of forged bank notes worth 132 million British Pounds.

[…]

It is important to note that Operation Bernhardt was an act of war, specifically pursued for the purpose of destroying Britain’s economy by creating so much new money that the value of the money already in circulation would plummet.

[…]

Today, the Federal Reserve is engaged in an eerily similar operation, counterfeiting trillions of dollars in U.S. bank notes and flooding the U.S. money supply with money created from nothing. The result, of course, is the same as was intended by Operation Bernhardt in 1942: The economic destruction of the target nation. Only this time, the target is the United States of America.

Don’t know much about the Federal Reserve? The following videos should provide you with some basic understanding. The videos are a little dry and dated, but the information is of value.

As you watch this first video, here’s a tid bit of interesting information about Dr. Quigley who is mentioned in the video.

“Tragedy and Hope” by Dr. Carroll Quigley ISBN 0913022-14-4 Dr. Carroll Quigley is best known as Bill Clinton’s professor of history at the Foreign Service School of Georgetown University. He also taught at Princeton and at Harvard

The following video also mentions the CRF, or Council on Foreign Relations. Their recent membership list is provided without comment. The complete list was unavailable. Apparently some members do not wish for their affiliation to be known.

Remember my initial question about the MSM, why aren’t they reporting the news that impacts on our lives? Here’s a possible answer.

For those who want to jump ugly, all I’m doing is asking the questions . . . something the MSM used to do!
