"Stimulus" Support Waning

There is hope for those of us who see the government as the central evil in our lives. If there is a way to screw something up, the government will find it. That seems to be the nature of that beast.

Anyway, support for Obama's insane spending plan appears to be waning. Republicans in the Senate are following in the footsteps of their House counterparts. At the same time, some moderate Democrats are getting into the mix. The fact that there is a bit of delay in it's passage is allowing people to really look at the bill. And, what they are finding is very little stimulus.

Different groups and economists are estimating that between 12%-25% of the bill offers actual stimulus. The rest is pork. Thus, a $850 billion package is overwhelming payoffs to those organizations and groups which supported the corrupt who are in office now. Before anyone gets hell bend at the attack on Democrats, I will say that if the Republicans were in control, the NRA and Smith & Wesson would be in line for billions. As it stands, the liberal organizations are profiting.

What is upsetting is that you and I (and our children) are going to be stuck with the tab for this garbage. Once again, the politicians, with the help of the media, succeeded in scaring the American people into believing that we need their help. The truth is that America would be better if the government just got out of the way. If we got rid of every politician and government employee, the country would be a better place. There would be a period of adjustment but we would prevail. Americans are funny that way.

However, we will not see that happen anytime soon. The next four years is going to see a continuation of the last 8 years. What you say. NO!!!!! Obama is all about change. HORSECRAP! There is no change going on. Obama is going to expand the power and control of the government just like George W. Bush did. It is that plain and simple. If you do not believe me, maybe it is time to pull your head out of your ass and read the facts. This "stimulus" package is the first in a series of steps which will expand the role of government. It is bad enough that they screwed up education, Social Security, Medicaid, and anything else they are involved in. Now, they want to mess up healthcare too.

The revolution is all about taking back what was given to us by the Founding Fathers. Our government is corrupt, broke, and in need of overhaul. A liar who is a product of that corruption organization called the United States Senate will do nothing to make things any different. In the end, they are all the same. Bush screwed America. Now it is Obama's turn.

The next time you hear a politician use the
word 'billion' in a casual manner, think about
whether you want the 'politicians' spending
YOUR tax money.

A billion is a difficult number to comprehend,
but one advertising agency did a good job of
putting that figure into some perspective in
one of it's releases.

A billion seconds ago it was 1959.

A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.

A billion hours ago our ancestors were
living in the Stone Age.

A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.


A billion dollars ago was only
8 hours and 20 minutes,
at the rate our government
is spending it.
While this thought is still fresh in our brain...
let's take a look at New Orleans ...
It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division.

Louisiana Senator,
Mary Landrieu (D)
is presently asking Congress for
to rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number...
what does it mean?

Well... if you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans
(every man, wom an, and child)

you each get $516,528.

Or... if you have one of the 188,251 homes in
New Orleans, your home gets $1,329,787.

Or... if you are a family of four...

your family gets $2,066,012.

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago...
and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt...
We had the largest middle class in the world...
and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.


Can you spell 'politicians'!

And I still have to
press '1'
for English.

I hope this goes around the
at least 100 times

Maybe we'll wake up,
before it's too late!
