November 12, 2010

Here’s an interesting take on the “mystery missle” recently captured on video in Southern California.  Conspiracy theory or just weird enough to be true?

November 2nd Can’t Arrive Soon Enough

April 19, 2010

You really have to wonder about the people in office right now.  Last week, tea party protests were held all over the USA.  Now the Democrats want tea party activists to think they’re trying to cut taxes, make government smaller, and reign in the deficit.

First, President Obama spoke at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser on tax day, April 15th and said that tea party activists should “be saying thank you” for the tax cuts enacted by his administration.

Then Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner appeared Sunday, April 18th on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”  He was asked about the tea party protests and responded by saying “We’ve just been through eight years where many people said deficits don’t matter. We can pass huge tax cuts, pass huge new programs without paying for them. That debate has changed fundamentally.”  “You don’t hear people say anymore deficits don’t matter. You don’t hear people saying we can pass enormous expansions in government without paying for it. That’s an important change.”

ACORN to Get Federal Funding…Again?

March 23, 2010

Mainstream media is doing everything they can to minimize coverage of ACORN.  The last six months have been devastating to the organization.  Between the sting videos, the state lawsuits, and an act of Congress, it looked like ACORN was out of business.

Not so fast.  On March 10, 2009, federal judge Nina Gershon of the Eastern District of New York made permanent her temporary injunction prohibiting Congress from cutting off funding for ACORN.  The Department of Justice is planning to appeal Gershon’s ruling and seek a stay pending appeal.

That’s What Elections Are For

February 25, 2010

Fox News is reporting that President Obama ended the health care summit by threatening to pass a health care reform bill without Republican support.  BHO said, “If we’re unable to resolve differences over health care, we will need to move ahead on decisions,” alluding to using reconciliation, a controversial maneuver that prevents a GOP filibuster by requiring only 51 votes.  How much did that summit cost tax payers?

But what’s more interesting was his follow up comment.  Obama added that if voters are unhappy with the results, then “that’s what elections are for.”

Did the President just dare the American public to vote him and other supporters of the health care bill out of office?  Neither the Congress or the President has an approval rating anywhere near 50%.  Be careful what you ask for…you just might get it.

Every New GM Vehicle Costs Taxpayers $12,200?

November 20, 2009

The National Taxpayers Union (NTU) has just released a study announcing that each new GM car costs taxpayers $12,200 and each new Chrysler costs taxpayers $7,600.  The report made several assumptions to determine this cost.

Jalopnik.com, a well-known automotive blog provides analysis on this report and trys to debunk some of its conclusions.  Only time will tell how many cars GM and Chrysler will sell and IF they will ever repay the TARP funds.

Your tax dollars at work!

Operation: Can You Hear Us Now?

September 17, 2009

“October 17th, 2009 could be a great day in American history. The so-called “media” is complicit with big government and the party in power. Politicians USED to be afraid of the media – no longer! Now, the “media” is the mouthpiece of the government!”

Operation Can You Hear Us Now has a great idea. They are planning Tea Parties at mainstream media outlets simultaneously all over the USA on October 17, 2009. This is a great way to Be Heard, Not Herded!

ACORN Plays the Race Card

September 17, 2009

With serious heat and light now shining on ACORN, Bertha Lewis, the group’s CEO told ABC News that all the negative attention is a “modern day form of McCarthyism” and said ACORN’s efforts help make sure “poor people, young people, minorities are participating in this democracy.” She went on to say that “There is an undertone of racism here. I think they’re basically saying these people shouldn’t be trusted, how could they be trusted? You know, they’re all poor black and brown people.”

Meanwhile FBI Director Robert Mueller said yesterday that he had only recently heard about the ACORN videos but that given the preliminary information, it is the type of thing that the FBI and Justice Department “would look at.”

ACORN Stung…Again!

September 17, 2009

James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles have done it again.  Their fifth video was filmed at the ACORN office in San Diego and it appears that the ACORN worker actually offers to help bring under age girls to the USA for the purposes of prostitution.  To see it, please visit www.BigGovernment.com

Many people say that ACORN should lose all federal funding.  They were on track to receive Billions next year.  I agree and so do all but 7 US Senators…good luck to those 7 in getting re-elected!  But I have a bigger issue with ACORN.  How many real criminals have they helped break federal and state laws against prostitution, tax evasion and fraud, among others?  Can you say RICO?  Why is the FBI not at every ACORN office in the country right now sifting through email and other records?  Who is protecting this organization and why?
