1,350 days of a “do nothing” Senate

Byron York of the Washington Examiner says it clearly (emphasis added by me):

Tuesday marks the 1,350th day since the Senate passed a budget. The law requires Congress to pass a budget every year, on the grounds that Americans deserve to know how the government plans to spend the trillions of taxpayer dollars it collects, along with dollars it borrows at the taxpayers’ expense. But Majority Leader Harry Reid, who last allowed a budget through the Senate in April 2009, has ignored the law since then.

There’s no mystery why. The budget passed by large Democratic majorities in the first months of the Obama administration had hugely elevated levels of spending in it. By not passing a new spending plan since, Reid has in effect made those levels the new budgetary baseline. Congress has kept the government going with continuing resolutions based on the last budget signed into law.

While Reid has forbidden action, the House has passed budgets as required. Senate Democrats have been highly critical of those budgets, designed by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan. But under Reid’s leadership, Democrats have steadfastly refused to come up with a plan of their own.

Yet some how the lunatic left will still blame Republicans for this.

Best part of the 2012 election cycle…

Today I woke up and had a thought that brought a smile to my face. I will count this thought as the happiest part of the 2012 election cycle. So the thought that I had was that no matter what happens tomorrow, no matter who wins and will be in the President on January 20th is that in 4 years Barack Obama will not be our President.

I know, if Mitt Romney wins then Barry could run again, but I don’t think the Democrats would risk running a looser against the person who bear him. So in 4 years the Democrats would have to run a new candidate and that will show the direction that party plans to go.

If Barack Obama wins, Americans will wait out another 4 years of a bad economy knowing that a new President will take over when he is done. Americans will do all they can to succeed DESPITE the actions of Barack Obama, just like we have tried to do the last 4 years. We did all we could to better our lives, even though we knew he would take credit for any thing positive and push blame to someone else for anything negative, because Americans want to succeed.

God bless America.

Got an email from the President today.

Opened my email this morning and saw an email from our President. I will let you in on my thoughts by commenting inline.

Mike —

Real quick — tonight is the final FEC fundraising deadline of this campaign.

For me as a candidate, it’s my last FEC deadline ever. {Awesome, this brought a smile to my face. I hope we can take this as a pledge he won’t run again after loosing this year.}

I know we’ve asked a lot of you these last 18 months. {You can say that again. I don’t think a day went by with a DNC email begging for money.} But it would mean a lot to me if you could join the more than 4 million Americans who’ve already stepped up to build this campaign, and chip in today. {and yet he does it again}

Any donation, no matter how large or small, {blah, blah, blah.. edited for reality}

If you can, please make a donation of $5 or more before midnight:

{edited out url, no need to use my site a portal to spam}

Thank you — for everything. {because that is what he wants to take from us… everything}

Barack

Who wants to bet this is not the last DNC panhandling email we get?

For the record, I get nearly 1/10th the number of emails from Republicans asking for donations. The DNC is pathetic.

Why I fear for America’s future

Sometimes I come across a comment on WordPress that makes me want to weep for the future of America. Today I came across a post where the author said:

“that our President who has done everything in his power to be conciliatory and has been by all accounts a moderate” (source)

This level of ignorance makes me fear that it is too late for America. When the most left leaning president since LBJ is considered a “moderate” I weep. When the most divisive president since Woodrow Wilson is considered “conciliatory” I weep.

If someone creates a political scale that uses Barack Obama as the middle of the scale JFK would look like a right wing radical. That person will never be able to have an honest discussion on politics, they are too far gone.

Eric Holder chooses his scape goat and the MSM will be happy with it.

So the Obama administration and the Department of Justice are going to throw Lanny Breur under the bus to take the heat off of Eric Holder for the Fast and Furious debacle.

The report says Attorney General Eric Holder was not made aware of potential flaws in the program until February of last year. But the report cites 14 other department employees — including Criminal Division head Lanny Breuer — for potential wrongdoing, recommending the department consider disciplinary action against them. (Fox News)

All though this conclusion does not explain the use of executive privileged by President Obama, and it does not say that Eric Holder had no knowledge of “Fast and Furious” prior to February. But I predict that the media will run with this report and call anyone that questions the report a “conspiracy theorist” and then dismiss any additional inquiry.

Forget the fact that the report was written by an employee of the Department of Justice. Are we supposed to believe they are impartial? A crime has been committed and someone needs to go to jail and that someone is the person that allowed this to happen. Eric Holder wants the paycheck and prestige of being the Attorney General, now he has to accept the responsibility that goes with that position.

Until we the people hold our elected official responsible for their actions they will continue to act irresponsibly. Start throwing some of these dirt bags in prison and we will start getting better results from Washington.

I hope they are just ignorate

In a recent post at “Whatever Works” the blog author wrote:

USA! USA! USA! (ssshhhh, don’t let the secret out)
We don’t trust the Congress. We don’t trust the Executive. And since Bush v. Gore and all the 5-4 decisions since, we no longer trust the Supreme Court.

However, by all measures, Americans have a high level of  trust in the U.S. military. Admiration too.

Don’t tell the flag wavers that the United States Military is an entirely Socialist enterprise. It would spoil their fun.

Figuring that my response would be censored I wanted to post it here to fight the lies:

saying that “the United States Military is an entirely Socialist enterprise” is a completely ignorant statement that shows you have no understanding of what Socialism is. If I am wrong, please give a definition of socialism and then show how the US military fits that definition.

Are you up for the challenge?

I hope that the author really is ignorant, because it would be scary if someone would knowingly propagate such lies.

The heart of the progressive plan has been revealed

Do you have your “tin foil hat” on? I am about to draws lines of connection between dozens of shadowy groups that are working undercover to destroy the American way of life. These groups meet in secret and use false names to cover their tracks…. oh wait, it’s only a Democrat from California that has shown us the core of the progressive plan to take down America.

In a recent interview the former speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi said:

“Right now there are over 80 million people who are benefiting from the bill,” the California Democrat added. “We can’t roll that back, so we have to find a way to keep it.”

There you have it, spoken out loud for all to hear. Now for those in denial I will spell it out in plain English.

The Democrats, with a majority of representatives in the House, passed what they knew to be an unconstitutional bill. They put a couple of provisions in the bill that small number of people will benefit from quickly so that once the facts are known and the bill is thrown out they can use the few that benefited as victims of the system.

So here we have it. The progressive lunatic left has showed us their plan. Pass unconstitutional bills that have some benefit for a small number of people so that those people can now be victims of the system if the unconstitutional bill is voided. When are people to going to stand up and tell the Democrats that they are not pawns to be used for political gain. When are people going to realize that the Democrats care nothing for the poor other then getting them to vote for what ever dirtbag has a (D) next to their name.

Wake up America!!!

Stop letting politicians use you for their gain. If you cast a vote for any Democrat this November you are sending a message to Washington that it is ok to lie, cheat and steal from the American people. If you don’t mind politicians running your life, then go ahead and vote for the Democrats.
