Cap and Tax

June 30, 2009

Ok, it’s past the house and on to the senate. I nagged my representative (who voted nay) and I continue to nag my senators. If this crap becomes law, life, as we know it, will change for the worse. This is the change you voted for if you put this schoolyard wimp in office. Yeah, I was noticing the other day how all these people he is putting in office look like the same wimps that used to take daily whippings in the schoolyard at recess. More on that observation later.

Cap and Trade (or crap and tax as I like to call it) will impact every aspect of your life. Not a thing you do, touch or consume will be unscathed. NOW IS THE TIME TO CONTACT YOUR SENATORS. NOW! If you don’t do this now, I promise you will regret it later. Yeah, you’ll hate yourself in the morning when that big old fat tax comes down on your Cheerios and you no longer can afford sugar to put on them before you try to catch the bus to work.

You’ll say, “Why didn’t I listen? Why didn’t I e-mail my gay senator and threaten him if he voted for this crap?” The little three hundred page “earmark” (didn’t Zero say no more of this?) says you can’t even sell your house without government approval. What is that, comrade? Don’t think you are this macho dude who will do as you please regardless of what they say. Remember, they own the banks now. Unless you know someone with cash (that’s becoming worth less and less day by day) you won’t be selling until little Timmy G says so. Hope you like that change?

Health Care

June 29, 2009

The brand spanking new healthcare plan from our fuehrer appears to be unsustainable. is that the term he used? I don’t remember, it gives me a headache if I listen to him for more than thirty seconds, he is truly a lot more ignorant than curious George ever thought of being. Anyway, he says he is going to fund it by taxing those of us that have healthcare for said healthcare as regular income. Oh, but his cohorts in the union, no tax.

So, all I could gather from thirty second sound bites is that he will be taking over healthcare and killing off old people because they are expensive to keep alive and medicaid and medicare are broke. Also they are collecting social security which is (you guessed it) broke.

This brings me to the old question, how can they be broke? They are trust funds. The money was put in there out of my pay. It has to be there, unless. Do you think someone has embezzled it. But that is a trust fund, wouldn’t that be a crime punishable by prison time? Let’s see, if you had a trust fund and I took some money out of it and gave it to my friend, oh…let’s say, Ted, to buy some beer, wouldn’t that be a crime? I’m pretty sure it is.

So, if a crime has been committed, why is no one in prison? Why is no one calling the police? Why is no one investigating this? Why does no one even seem to care. I want everyone who ever voted to take money from these funds and use it improperly, arrested, tried, and jailed. I am publically calling for this, right now.

Seed Banks

June 28, 2009

Seed what? A seedbank stores seeds as a source for planting in case of catastrophic events like natural disasters,  outbreaks of disease, or war. There are about 6 million types of seeds in about 1,300 banks throughout the world as of 2006. The Svalbard International Seed Vault has been built inside a mountain on the frozen Norwegian island of Spitsbergen with 1-metre thick walls of steel-reinforced concrete, two airlocks and two blast-proof doors. Why do you suppose?

A few years back I heard that the seed companies were genetically modifying seeds so that the plants grown from them would not produce seeds. Then the other day I heard a guy on the radio talking about how his garden was ruined because the genetically modified seeds cross-pollinated his normal seeds and caused them to be seedless.

What can this mean? Is this just a money grab by greedy companies? Is this some diabolical plot from the government? Is some “unseen society” planning to rule the world in this way? Seeds made it five thousand or so years since God created them, I think they will last a while longer. If nothing else this is a huge waste of tax payer money. You say no it was paid for by the Global Crop Diversity Trust. Yeah, with generous grants from the government of (you guessed it) tax payer money.

More Mass Transit

June 27, 2009

Today we’ll ride the bus around town. If you’re young, and you live in the coverage area, this doesn’t seem so bad. Walk down to the stop, get on the right bus and ride to the stop nearest your destination. About a buck. not bad. Let’s sell our car and do it regularly. Good for a few months. Then it snows. The bus is late. You are late for work. It happens more. You are fired. How would a date be on a bus? Sounds kind of cool.

Ok, let’s say you’re a little older. Let’s say you need groceries. You hop the bus and get to the grocery store. Everything is cool. You shop and return to the bus stop, which usually seems to be near these stores, cool again. It’s hot. The frozen vegetables are not as hard as they were when you bought them. They’ll be alright, right? Oh, what about the ice cream, it’s going to be milk. But that’s ok because the milk is going to be cottage cheese. What do you suppose the chicken is going to be? Will eggs be ok? You probably should do this every day because you really can’t get on the bus with six grocery bags.

Ok, you don’t live where it snows and you have the groceries covered. How well do these buses keep a schedule? Can you use it on a regular basis and keep your job? How many people actually live within walking distance of the bus stop. I live on a main road through a large subdivision and I have never seen a bus in the year and a half I have lived here. I used to live near a main road in a larger city and I saw quite a few buses. They usually had one or two people on them. I got a schedule once and it was like deciphering some communiqué from a German enigma machine. I never did figure out how I could get to work.

Does any of this sound workable to you? Can you see any holes in my logic? Am I missing anything here?

Mass Transit

June 26, 2009

This is another hot button for the tyrants. They all seem to want you dependant on public transportation. First who is going to take a train on a day trip to another city? Come on, I don’t hear any takers out there. All you have to do is get to the train station, get on the train, relax, get off the train, find transportation in the city you are visiting. That’s not so bad is it?

Well, getting to the train station; $30.00 taxi ride. Getting on the train; $100.00 ticket. Relax; free if you do nothing while on the train, just don’t touch any of the stuff they have for you to eat or drink on the train as they make mini bar prices seem like bargains. Get off the train; free. Find transportation; $30.00 taxi ride. $160.00. I’ve bought cars for less.

I think it’s a control thing pure and simple. How can they control you if you can just up and leave.

Tomorrow we’ll ride the bus around town.

Trains

June 24, 2009

As I wondered earlier, why are trains so important to tyrants? What is it that they have that tyrants simply have to have? They are one of the most inefficient and expensive ways to transport anything, in spite of the CSX commercials on TV and radio claiming that they move so many thousand pounds of weight a mile down the track on a gallon of fuel. The figures are set up to make it sound better than it really is. Also, is that figure including the weight of the train itself. I believe one of those wheels may be a ton or more and there are eight of them on each car.

I have known many a railroad worker and one of the things that they will brag about to you is that they pay no federal income taxes. One actually showed me his check stub, zero income taxes. It’s a subsidy, one of many, without which the railroad would have gone out of business decades ago like it should have. It became extremely inefficient in the early sixties and has been going downhill ever since. Passenger trains cost an arm and a leg to ride and then you are still going to need a car when you get where you are going, that’s lose/lose.

Do you set at the railroad crossing waiting for the train like a good citizen? Do you believe that the train is a utility or something like that? NO! It’s the private property of someone. While you are sitting there losing time and money some rich dude is making money. How many people have died at railroad crossings so these dudes could make money? Do you think maybe they should take some of that money and build bridges and tunnels to eliminate railroad crossings? The government owns no railroad, but they subsidize them all. Something to think about next time you are setting at the railroad crossing, late for work.

Gold

June 22, 2009

Why are there gold vending machines in Germany. Could this have something to do with wheel barrels full of money to buy a loaf of bread. The Weimar Republic is the name given by historians to the parliamentary republic established in 1919 in Germany to replace the imperial form of government. It was named after Weimar, the place where the constitutional assembly took place. This liberal democracy eventually lapsed in the early 1930’s, leading to the the ascent of Hitler.

Although the constitution of 1919 was never officially repealed, the legal measures taken by the Obama administration, I mean the Nazi government in February and March 1933, commonly known as Gleichschaltung (“forcible coordination”) meant that the government could legislate contrary to the constitution (sound familiar?). The constitution became irrelevant, therefore 2009, I mean 1933 is usually seen as the end of the Weimar Republic and the beginning of Obama’s, I mean Hitler’s “Third Reich“.

In its 14 years the Weimar Republic was faced with numerous problems, including hyperinflation, and political extremists. However, it reformed the currency, unified tax politics and the railway system (why are railroads always so important to communist dictators like Obama?). Its constitution was seen as one of the most modern in the world and the Republic represented a period of cultural innovation in Germany. However, because it preceded Hitler, it’s widely seen as a failed democracy. Hope we do better.

Abandoned Troops

June 21, 2009

I’ve seen it over and over. Some egregious activity in some third world arm pit of the Earth and here comes the United States to the rescue with the liberals jumping up and down in their seats brimming with excitement. Then about half way through the job the same liberals lose their taste for war and decide that we are doing the wrong thing and should stop funding it. Then, as usual, they stir up unrest throughout the country, get in power, and hang our troops out to dry. They did it in Korea, they did it in Viet Nam and I think they are twisted out of shape because they didn’t do it in the first gulf war.

I was too young for Korea so I remember nothing about returning soldiers. I was unaware and young when they came back from Viet Nam but I do remember the way they were treated and if I were just a few years older I would have made a difference in the faces of some of the jerks that greeted them. But I’m old now and I guarantee you that if I see any returning soldier treated as they were when they returned from Viet Nam that someone will be going to the hospital.

FREEDOM IS NOT FREE

Detroit

June 20, 2009

Is Obama’s plan to tear down city slums like in Flint and Detroit just a trick to move Democrats to areas where their votes will swing more Congressional seats to the socialists. It’s said that he sees no value in 90% plus Democrat victories in these areas when he could move thousands of those votes into nearby Republican held districts and win them as well. Then he will rely on “White Flight” to clear out the last stubborn pockets of conservatives. To see what Detroit looks like today follow this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3Rzvn368XQ

If you will think back to yesterdays post I think this plan might be working and failing all at the same time. As you saw in the video the flight has taken place, but yesterdays post told you where they were going. This migration may be the setup for a break away republic of conservatives that will condemn Obama and his band of merry faggots and leave them holding the bag for their own costly policies. If that is the case, I intend to be in the Republic Of Texas when that happens.

The New Dustbowl

June 19, 2009

Is California the new dustbowl? New York? Michigan? The evidence is really starting to mount. Fleeing from the usual consequences of liberal policy (confiscatory taxes, a stagnant economy, and social degradation) the number of people leaving such states for greener pastures in conservative states is staggering.

The IRS has figures that show over a quarter of a million left California for Texas and Oklahoma from 2004 to 2007. That’s more than twice as many as went there from these places in the 1930’s. Check that with the Sacramento Bee at http://www.sacbee.com/topstories/story/1944947.html if you don’t believe me.

According to a migration survey by United Van Lines New York is second on their list at 59.5 percent. The percentage of those moving out of New York has continued to rise during the past three years. This from the Business Review at http://birmingham.bizjournals.com/albany/stories/2005/01/03/daily32.html

Michigan is just as bad, 11% of 600 people questioned in an EPIC-MRA Poll say they are likely or certain to leave in 5 years…that translates into roughly 600,000 people from the adult population. According to Craig Ruff, senior fellow at Public Sector Consultants Inc., “If we had a net loss of 600,000 people we would likely lose a seat in the United States House of Representatives.” This is from WZZM in Grand Rapids, MI.

What have we learned about liberal rule?
