Remember ACORN? Congressional Democrats voted to offer billions of taxpayer dollars to ACORN and other leftwing outfits – YOUR tax dollars – in their “economic stimulus” legislation.
But that isn’t all. House Democrats voted to spend $600 million on new cars for the federal government, $50 million for the National Endowment of the Arts, and $136 billion on at least 32 government programs. They even voted to spend $335 million on STD prevention.
None of this will fix our ailing economy.
How about a simple NO for those begging for handouts.
Like any business owner if you can not make it on your own then you need to go out of business.
If ACORN can not make it on their own they too need to go out of business.
It will be interesting to see how much of this stimulus package they want to siphen off to themselves in raises or perks.
Personally I think they all need about a 25% pay cut (at least) since they are responsible for this problem.
It could never happen to us seems to be what much of the populations thinks.
That is either arrogant, delusional or flat out stupid. The most interesting thing to me is until the bomb drops in your own back yard much of population functions on business as usual.
First we have a President of the USA who has been sued more in 12 months than any other President has been sued in a whole life time. That should send up red flags somewhere. Again there is a new lawsuit challenging Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president.
Instead of the President simply presenting the documents that would settle all of this … NO ! NOT going to do that. So we have suit being brought on behalf of Charles F. Kerchner Jr., Lowell T. Patterson, Darrell James Lenormand and Donald H. Nelson Jr. and names as defendants Barack Hussein Obama II, the U.S., Congress, the Senate, House of Representatives and former Vice President Dick Cheney along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Where’s the proof Barack Obama was born in the U.S. or that he fulfills the “natural-born American” clause in the Constitution?
HERE THIS LOUD AND CLEAR … THERE IS NONE YET !!

Then we have Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner’s nomination was held up after it was revealed that he had failed to pay more than $34,000 in taxes.
Now we have former Sen. Tom Daschle, chosen to lead the new president’s health reform efforts. Daschle recently filed amended tax returns to report $128,203 in back taxes and $11,964 in interest, according to a Senate document obtained by The Associated Press.
Daschle filed amended tax returns for 2005, 2006 and 2007 to reflect additional income for consulting work, the use of a car service and reduced deductions for charitable contributions. He filed the returns after Obama announced he intended to nominate Daschle to head the Health and Human Services Department.
Most of the additional taxes resulted from unreported income from the use of a car service provided him by a close friend and business associate, Leo Hindery Jr. The unreported income for that service totaled more than $250,000 over three years.
I am beginning to wonder if a requirement to be in the Obama administration is DON’T PAY YOUR TAXES.
Clinton ushered in the legacy “it’s okay to be in politics and be a liar” … it appears that the legacy for Obama is “tax cheats are okay”.

Meanwhile a large segment of the population either does not have a clue or simply does not care we are in an economic meltdown.
EVERYONE should stand up and scream STOP !

I already contacted my state officials and told the to vote NO.
Let your voice be heard.
You can go HERE and get help composing your letter and they will send it for you.
You are NOT HELPLESS unless you choose to do nothing.
There are millions of Americans who are politically ignorant. That does not include the voting public that are simply plain ignorant. Today it is unfortunate the rest of us are left to suffer those consequences. To top that off it appears that a good part of the public have lost the ability to use what we all know as ‘common sense’ and far worse have lost their ‘ethical compass’.
Personally I give up my political affiliation with the Republicans.
The bad behavior in Washington in my viewpoint is rampant on both sides of this isle. I blame the Republican party the most because they failed to hold the ethical line that made me proud to be in that party. The Democrats have always been whiny sniveling boo hoo artists giving handouts to the undeserving in order garner perks for themselves.
Why do I put the heaviest blame on the Republicans? Because they KNOW BETTER and are either in collusion or chose to say nothing for whatever reason.
I fully believe that those who sit on the sidelines and say NOTHING when they see a wrong being committed are as guilty as those who commit the bad behavior. In that case SILENCE IS NOT GOLDEN.
I watched Orin Hatch being interviewed about the ‘okay’ of Tim Geithner on Glen Beck the other day. I was appalled that Hatch thought it was better for the country to have a crook watching over the treasury assets because he was “so brilliant” so “smart”. I am aghast at Hatch’s definition of brilliant. Hatch looked into Geithner’s eyes and trusted this was an honest mistake. We trust the running of our government to people who themselves have less than adequate judgment skills?
1. Brilliant DOES NOT trump ETHICAL.
2. Someone who ‘cheats on his taxes’ is a gambler … better defined by stupid rather than brilliant.
Geithner by action is not brilliant or he should have known HE WOULD BE EXPOSED. Maybe he did and thought “oh well business as usual”.
“Inexcusable negligence” for non-payment of ($43,000) in taxes during his International Monetary Fund days … was the comment from Susan Collins of Maine (R). Tom Harkin of Iowa, Robert Byrd of West Virginia and Russ Feingold of Wisconsin (all Democrats where smart and ethical enough to put the nix on the okay) as was Bernie Sanders an Independent. Arlen Specter said he would vote yes but had a change of heart and the last moment and voted NO. Well BRAVO to those with the ‘common sense’ and ‘ethical guts’ to call a spade a spade. You see it seems a good many feel “Had (Geithner) not been nominated for treasury secretary, it’s doubtful that he would have ever paid these taxes.”
Geithner was given a thumbs up and now is in charge of the IRS.
This is ethical insanity.
Thank heaven there are still young people who are not as foolish as their peers and some of their professors and administrators.
Reformed is not part of what Bill Ayers is at all.
He is not the least bit sorry for his actions … in fact he denies them.
He maintains HE is not responsible for any bad behavior (anyone believing that has a serious brain function impediment). Isn’t that what every narcissistic jerk says?
Every PARENT footing the bill for their kid to take classes from Ayers should be pitching the BITCH of a lifetime. Insist on your money back and start a class action if you don’t get it.
Bill Ayers was one of the founders of the Weather Underground, a Vietnam era radical group responsible for several bombings in the early 1970’s. At present, he is a professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago and noted for his work in education reform.
Ayers was invited to speak at the St. Mary’s College in Moraga Wednesday night as part of a lecture series designed to challenge students to think in new ways. But not everyone welcomed him. Several conservatives went to the college to protest Ayers’ appearance. They called him a domestic terrorist.
During his speech, one man tried to present Ayers with a bible. Security took him away and Ayers went on with his lecture. He challenged students to look at the world differently and get involved. “We need to open our eyes and see the world as it really is.. not some fragmented stereotype of a world predigested corporate ideological lenses and see the world as it is,” Ayers said.
Bravo Barack Obama … well said!
President Barack Obama issued a withering critique Thursday of Wall Street corporate behavior, calling it “the height of irresponsibility” for Wall Street employees to be paid more than $18 billion in bonuses last year while their financial sector was crumbling.
“It is shameful,” Obama said from the Oval Office. “And part of what we’re going to need is for the folks on Wall Street who are asking for help to show some restraint, and show some discipline, and show some sense of responsibility.”
The president’s comments, made with new Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner at his side, came in swift response to a report that employees of the New York financial world garnered an estimated $18.4 billion in bonuses last year. The figure, from the New York state comptroller, drew prominent news coverage.
Then we are facing this:
Eastman Kodak Co. said Thursday it is cutting 3,500 to 4,500 jobs, or 14 percent to 18 percent of its work force, as it posted a fourth-quarter loss of $137 million on plunging sales of both digital and film-based photography products. Its stock tumbled more than 23 percent.
Ford Motor Co. said Thursday it lost $5.9 billion in the fourth quarter and burned through $5.5 billion in cash as sales slumped, but the company still says it does not plan to seek federal loans.
The Labor Department reported that the number of Americans continuing to claim unemployment insurance for the week ending Jan. 17 was a seasonally adjusted 4.78 million, the highest on records dating back to 1967. That’s an increase of 159,000 from the previous week and worse than economists’ expectations of 4.65 million.
This is a drop in the bucket of what is on the horizon.
Apparently the “oh well” attitude will continue until the pink slip hits the mailbox of “we the people”.
Do you have a plan B?
If the breadwinner in your family were cut loose from their job what would you do? Those are things that could be just around the bend. The first domino has been pushed over … how long will that line take before it hits your spot on the planet?
