Disappointment

February 24, 2010

There’s a lot of talk about Scot Brown being a disappointment. I don’t know how you feel but personally I expected a lot more. Of course I based my thinking on the thought that anyone who drives an old truck must be all good. I suppose I should have been considering the obvious, he’s a Republican from Massachusetts.

I guess he’s better than a Kennedy but here’s the thing. The Founding Fathers envisioned a congress where the average guy would leave his productive job and go “serve” in the congress and then go back home to his productive job. I read where the average salary in America today is $40,000.00. Who can afford to get elected on that kind of money? I will venture to say that we haven’t had an “average guy” in congress for many moons.

The type of jackal that runs for office today is normally backed by many a pocket-book all looking to get fatter, not skinnier. By the time an “average guy” gets in office he owes so many favors that he feels obligated to honor that he will inevitably produce votes like Mr. Brown’s “jobs bill” vote. He should be the poster boy for campaign finance reform.

Here’s a quick overview of my plan for campaign finance reform. Nobody spends more than $100,000.00. NOBODY! Not the Pres, nobody. No donation can exceed $100.00. This means all donations, corporate, personal, organization. The NRA can give you no more than $100.00. The SEIU can give you no more than $100.00. GM, GE, Mobil, McDonald’s, Fred Farkel, the girl up the street, the homeless guy on the corner, all no more than $100.00. If you can’t find 1,000 donations maybe you shouldn’t be running. All monies must be donated, none of your own.

Hey just a quick shot from the hip. Maybe one of you “average guys” out there can draft something up and introduce it. Probably not because congress has become a wealth building endeavor hasn’t it? That’s right, they’re rich when they go in and they’re even wealthier when they come out. Plus they usually have brokered a six figure income consulting some super-corporation after retirement. A retirement funded by the American people. What a scam. Oh well, until next time, screw environmentalists.

Voter Registration

January 11, 2010

I heard the other day that our esteemed legislators, Schumer and Fwank in particular, have “crafted” legislation for voter registration so no one will be left out. It’s a piece of… legislation… that will make it possible for everyone on every list in America to be registered to vote. An admirable idea with only… thirty or forty flaws.

Right out of the chute I can see a duplication flaw. I myself am on the list of land owners as well as drivers, and on into infinity. How much will this oversight cost the American people? Ahh, what’s a couple of billion among friends? If that’s the only problem we’re good to go.

Hold on there. I personally have found several properties that had legal owners who were deceased. Now what? I suppose just have acorn register them as Democrats. Well, they’ll probably just omit the list of property owners anyway. No great loss as most of them are rich Republicans anyway, and should know how to get registered by themselves.

What about drivers? I have seen several people with drivers licenses cashing welfare checks in liquor stores who didn’t even speak English. You don’t think they were illegal aliens do you? Nahh. Just undocumented immigrants right? Well that’s pretty much the only big problems I can see and these should not stop such an important piece of… legislation… wouldn’t you agree?

To heck with all of this. I’m sick and tired of having it shoved to me by these criminals in congress. They are shooting to have this piece of crap passed into law in the next two weeks. TWO WEEKS! WTF? E-mail, phone, visit in person, send a candy-gram, send a strip-o-gram, do whatever you have to to let these vermin know that you will not stand for any more gerrymandering on their part.

Remember. The welfare check of thirty million illegals depends on you.

Congress

August 21, 2009

Between Maxine saying she is all about socializing business and the rest of the idiot quotes I’ve heard coming out of DC it’s amazing these negative IQ’s keep getting work. But somehow they fool enough of the people long enough to re-up. That’s not saying much for the American people and there is nothing I can do about it. Facts is facts.

It’s not all Democrat quotes that make the hit parade. The one that I think is the best is from Republican Rep. Bill Sali of Idaho who said, “I have asked my staff to draft a measure I call the Obesity Reduction and Health Promotion Act. Since Congress will apparently not be restrained by the laws and principles that naturally exist, I propose that the force of gravity, by force of Congress, be reduced by ten percent. Mr. Speaker, that will result in immediate weight loss for every American. It will immediately help reduce obesity problems in America.”

This was probably some sort of attempt at dry humor (I hope) on the part of Mr. Sali, but he’s right on here. Congress acts like the laws of physics, nature, economy and all the other unchangeable constants don’t apply when they are involved. Then they glom on to some twisted theory like global warming and hang on for dear life through the coldest summer I can remember. We need fresh thinkers. We need people with real life experience. Throw all these fossils that have broken with reality out and elect some people with something besides oatmeal between their ears.
