You have to wonder just how many times Obama is going to announce that, thanks entirely to Republicans in Congress, this nation is on the verge of going over the cliff or ending up in a ditch. I also wonder how many people still give a darn if Head Start simply disappears or how it is that cops and firefighters, who all collect a city or county paycheck, will suddenly be unemployed if the federal government has to cut 2 cents from every dollar it currently squanders.
The Little President who cried ‘Wolf’
It was just a matter of time, before this little subject would come up, because Obama has been crying ‘wolf’ since day one. And I have always wondered just how many times he would do it before someone would call him on it.
The fact of the matter is, the government will not have to stop a lot of the programs that are out there, and cops and firefighters are not on the federal government’s dole. The fact is, government spends way to much, and no matter what Pelosi says, they have a spending problem, and no amount of crying “wolf” is going to tell the people anything but.
If you go into the government bureacracy, and look at the government programs we have, many of them do the same things. Couldn’t we just cut a bunch of those and streamline the government without cutting all kinds of programs? Think of it this way.
You have your light bill. The light company supply’s the electricity for it. Not the trash pick up. Not the gas company. But if you were the government, you would have the electric company. And because you think that the electric company doesn’t do a good enough job in certain areas of your business, you form a program to help it along. Most of the time, this kind of thing is redundant. Like most government programs.
But this article needs to be read. So most of the rest of this post is about it. I will post here part of the article from WND, but if you want to read it, the link is under the first paragraph of this post.
Apparently, Chuck Hagel will be the next secretary of defense. Not only can he count on all 55 Senate Democrats voting for him, but a large number of Republicans. In spite of the fact that he is an anti-Semite and the best friend Iran has in America, the feeling, as expressed by Sen. Saxby Chambliss, is that the president should be allowed to pick his own Cabinet members. Why any Republican senator should feel that way is a mystery to me. Not only is Hagel not the best man for the job, he may very well be the worst.
But I also could never figure out why the Republicans allowed Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who had been the chief counsel of the ACLU and an outspoken feminist, to sail through her confirmation hearings in 1993 even though she refused to answer questions from those who wondered how she planned to make the transition from left-wing advocate to being a justice on the Supreme Court. And over the past 20 years, we’ve all come to realize that she never had the slightest intention of transitioning. The final vote, by the way, was 96-3.
And yet it had only been a scant six years earlier, in 1987, that the Democrats prevented Ronald Reagan from appointing Robert Bork to the Supreme Court.
And, again, in 2004, the Democrats prevented George W. Bush from appointing either Charles Pickering or, later, Michael B. Wallace, to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, often a stepping stone to the Supreme Court.
Clearly, it’s Democrats who know how to play hardball. Republicans don’t even know how to put on their jock straps.
I am guessing that the Democrats will get the massive immigration reform bill passed just the way they want it. That means, as happened with Reagan, who signed the first amnesty bill, they will promise to build an enormous fence with barbed wire and electricity running through it, and then renege once they have all the illegals registered as Democrats. And by “all,” I am not referring to the 11 million they keep yakking about. That is the exact same number that was being tossed around over a decade ago. So unless Mexicans stopped sneaking in since then, stopped having babies or have taken Romney’s suggestion to heart and started self-deporting, I think it is safe to assume the number is much closer to 20 million.
Wouldn’t it make for a nice change if the next time Obama started in about needing higher taxes to finance work on our infrastructure, he quit yakking about bridges, roads and those damn trains that nobody wants, and instead started making plans to build that fence?
I always found it odd that Reagan, who made the line “Trust but verify” so famous when talking about the Soviet Union, was so easily flimflammed by the Democrats.
I remember that “Trust but Verify” about the Soviet Union that Reagan so famously used. But I also, over the years notice how the democrats have “flimflammed” it because it now doesn’t fit their agenda. And that is something we all have to realize. Politicians do only what their agenda requires. Right now the republicans are on the right side. Their agenda is to save this nation.
Some want that too, but the majority of them now it seems just want to help the president’s agenda. And that is to destroy this nation in the guise of helping it. And you have to have smarts and common sense working to see this. *sorry you Obama followers who can’t seem to see anything wrong with his policies.*, but it is the truth. If Bush had done 1/100th of the things that Obama is getting away with now, he would have been impeached and removed from office. Obama?
There is an impeachment in Congress now, but do we hear about it? NO. We don’t, unless we do not listen to the lame-stream media, and we look for other ways to get our news. I myself look to the mainstream media, magazines like the New Republic, and also others like NewsMax and FoxNews and others.
I listen to both sides, then weigh what is going on with this country and figure it out for myself. I do not care if I am labeled as a racist or a homophobe or a terrorist by the democrats and those who are following Obama like he is our next god…..because he is wrong. And it has been proven. All you have to do is look and see what is going on, to know what is really happening. Democrats are blaming republicans for everything going wrong, but it is a democrat led Senate that hasn’t passed a budget in almost four years. Republicans would never get away with that, without everyone jumping on it and bringing it to light. But no one in the media, hell, not even FoxNews for the most part isn’t doing that.
We have to start using our God-given Common Sense here people and start realizing that our politicians are not in it for us. They are only there for them, and it is time for a revolution against them. For they do not represent us.
Now, granted, there are a few out there, like Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, and my congressman Todd Rokita of Indiana, or any of the other Conservative Tea Party people who are introducing themselves to the American public, who are doing everything they can to show what is going wrong….but we need more of them.….
Not more of Hagel, Pelosi, Reid, McCain, Boehner, Christy, Obama, Biden, Bloomsberg, and others who keep caving or sticking to the liberal agenda. It doesn’t work.
It’s time to change directions. Mark my words here folks. It’s time.
God Bless America
God Bless our troops
God Bless us to start using our Common Sense
