Political parties’s fortunes rise and fall, lately in the blink of an eye. But for the past decade, Americans’ trust in their government has been steadily going south. Last year, that confidence reached a near-historic low, according to a poll conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press: Only 22 percent of those surveyed said they trusted government in Washington “almost always or most of the time.”

“There isn’t anything we’ll be able to do about the media in ’12, but we can at least recognize it for what it is. If the media is favorable toward a GOP candidate in the primary, do not assume it will continue – and certainly do not favor a candidate because the media does so.”

“The government is supposed to provide order and structure. It is the agency of law in a just and reasoned society. The shameful failure of the Pelosi Congress to produce a budget is an example of lawlessness — a failure of fiscal duty no different from various accounting frauds that would put corporate CEOs behind bars. A budget is the government’s way of explaining to its masters in the electorate how it will perform the duties they have assigned to it, using the resources they have seen fit to provide. The current process of limitless deficits and make-it-up-as-we-go spending resolutions makes an utter mockery of this republican ideal. … Government through continuing resolution is a fraud. Politicians who claim the wisdom to manage our lives, with piles of law carved into stone, are instead scribbling their judgments on scratch paper with pencils. It’s time to hear exactly what they intend to do, and exactly how much it’s going to cost us, so we can pass judgment on them.”

“The pretence is made that to do away with right and wrong would produce uncivilized people, immorality, lawlessness, and social chaos. The fact is that most psychiatrists and psychologists and other respected people have escaped from moral chains and are able to think freely.”

“Congress is now preparing to pass yet another jobs bill. You know how to create more jobs in this country? Fire the people that wrote the first jobs bill. That obviously didn’t work.”

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

GOP & Jobs

If you thought that the change in the house to a GOP majority meant that companies were suddenly going to start shitting out new jobs, then you need a reality check. The economy is still a mess and that isn’t going to change just because of an election. It’s going to be a mess for years to come.

FACT: Unemployment is down… BUT that is because of an increase in companies like Wal-mart needing low paid part time workers and many other people just giving up on finding a job and their unemployment running out.

In spite of what some people think you can not feed a family of four and keep a roof over your head on a minimum wage part time job. 20 hours a week @ 7.50 and hour is not enough to live on.

FACT: The government can’t employ everyone. Unless you want one of those sixteen thousand new IRS jobs that will be created by Obamacare. Which in and of itself is a complete joke.

FACT: Companies won’t be hiring en-mass until they know what the ramifications of hiring large numbers of employees under Obama’s ill advised health care plan. Many companies are trying to find ways to pay for the employees they have now. This will surely lead to higher prices on many services or goods. Are you an AT&T customer? Most of us are… Get ready for rate increases. AT&T alone figures it will cost them one billion to cover all their employees. Who do you think is gonna pay for that?

So again those of you who are already jumping up and down about the jobs promises that were made, shuddup it took almost eight years to get into this mess (longer really) it’s going to take a lot more than two months to get out of it


In a pre-dawn vote Saturday, the GOP-led House approved legislation to cut nearly $61 billion from the federal budget. The House vote sets up a high-stakes impasse between President Obama and Congress that seems likely to lead to a government shutdown early next month.

The budget plan, approved on a largely party-line vote, would impose serious spending cuts over the next year in virtually every reach of government, including domestic programs and even some military programs. Among the more controversial proposed cuts are hundreds of millions of dollars in reductions of  the nation’s border security, nearly $400 million culled from U.S. efforts in Afghanistan and another $1.5 million taken from support for Iraqi security forces.

President Obama offered the GOP an olive branch on health care and Reagan-style optimism in an address that didn’t satisfy the talking heads—but will be seen by many Americans as common sense.

The congress is at it again. With the republicans saying there needs to be a decrease in federal spending. The Dem’s of course want to keep things status quo or even increase federal spending. They blindly believe that if spending is cut then it will hurt economic recovery.

What these idiots fail to realize is there has been little to no economic recovery. The economy is in the toilet. There’s no jobs, prices on just about everything seem to be going up on a weekly basis. But the Dems believe we can spend our way out of debt.

I don’t know a lot of things, but here is what I do know:

If you make four hundred dollars a week and your bills are three hundred and fifty a week that leaves you with fifty. Now I need gas and groceries with what’s left. That means I don’t go out and buy that new iPod I really want, because I can’t friggin afford it.

This whole theory is falling on deaf ears in Washington, particularly with the democrats.

It’s really simple guys you can’t spend your way out of debt. I am sure you have heard that before.

The economy might actually improve if some of the BS spending is cut out. Maybe take some of that money you save giving out food stamps and free housing to illegal immagrants and put it to use creating jobs for the people who actually have lived here their whole lives, are citizens and have paid taxes.

Just a thought…

Now Choke On It.

The GOP’s drive to repeal health-care reform is an uphill battle, given the program’s renewed popularity. But the White House can’t be bothered to defend its achievement.

The GOP is set to make its first major act as the new sheriff in town a faux-repeal of Obamacare.
