Dig Deep and Patriotic


Open it up. Click on the flow chart.  Try to follow the government cheese around the maze that is the proposed health care reform from Mr. Kennedy.  How does it make you feel?  Perhaps like you need to see a doctor.  Well I hope not.

Now that Franken-stein has made his appearance at the castle, the evil plotters think they have enough votes to avoid by-partisanship on healthcare reform.  Schumer plans to ram it through the senate as fast as possible.  Who cares what is in it, right?  Recent polls suggest the Democrats should resist this temptation to become heavy handed.  Obamacare is not popular among unions and seniors, two groups that are more than blue leaning.  And the Democrat senators and representatives that will have to vote for this turd face re-election.  Many live in states that McCain carried last fall. 

The house and senate Democrat majority is about to get smashed in 2010. (Just like in 1993 - Hillarycare anyone).  In that election 56 house seats went to the Republicans as a result.

Read in yesterday's WSJ that some folks in the Obama administration think we should have MORE stimulus even though only 10% of the original Porkulus Plan ($787B) has been spent so far!  Seriously, they want to print even more money!!!

Biden, speaking on behalf of Obama (That is just plain scary), stated that Obama "had misjudged" the depth of the economic problems referring to increasing unemployment (and underemployment) as it approaches double digits.  Say it ain't so, Joe!

Of course, the last part of the Federally mandated minimum wage standard increase is about to happen at the worst possible time - NOW!  How is that going to impact hiring?

So let's see, Germany is about to lower taxes and curtail spending while the USSA (United Socialist States of America) is about to plunge even deeper into the red ink.  When you are in debt do you borrow more money and go on a shopping spree to get out of debt? Ahhh - no.

Forgive me my monthly rant.

An interesting side personal note....

I received a marriage proposal from one of my long time roommates this weekend.  The question is....which one?  The female or the male.  And the obvious next question is - how did I answer?

I will answer another day....

Peace to you all, except you Kim Jong Il and Hugo Chavez.

Banging like a screen door in a wind storm...

"The problem with socialism is you eventually run out of other people's money." - Margaret Thatcher. Maybe our Tin President should contact the Iron Lady for some manning up.

A Republican Governor in the Deep South was overheard saying about the Stimulus Package, "...of course we are going to get the funds we are entitled to." I checked the Constitution and it does not say anything about States Rights to Entitlement other than a common defence (spelled as it written in the document).

We raised the axe (again) this week at my company. It will fall soon. We are not entitled to any money from the bailouts, nor do we want any. More good people around the world will be hurt. It depresses me.

"The problem with Healthcare in America is there are simply too many people." - Nancy Pelosi. Perhaps we should put term limits on common people. What say you, commoners? The max age a person can live to be is 65? Welcome to retirement and the afterlife. Looking at some of our Senators and Justices this is not that bad of an idea. Kidding....

A-Rod understands. That's good. Does anyone have a problem with a scenario where a person volunteers to a drug test with the stipulation that the results will be kept confidential and then it leaks out and is used against the person? I imagine that Mr. Rodriguez has been tested plenty since 2003 and has not resurfaced on the list since the steroid rules were implemented. MLB in 2003 - "Let's see how many people are using. Answer= 104 in 2003. We now understand the scope of the problem. Let's institute some clear rules." Should he have taken them in the first place? Of course not and he should not need a rule to know that. That is his mistake to bear the burden for. But violating confidentiality is wrong on every level.

Make love to someone, it's almost free if you wrap it.Kiss
