Au revoir

I’m done for now. Had enough. Not interested in the world, in it’s steady march to destruction. I think I’ll quilt, or maybe play video games or visit the grandchildren.

There has to be more to life than the constant barrage of hate and discontent that spews from the politically aware on both sides of the aisle, by the way. While my sweet spouse will continue to fight the good fight at least for now I’m on hiatus again. Somewhat like “what’s his name” from Green Bay who kept retiring, except I have a wonderful warm feeling in my heart (which I know to be the Holy Spirit) that this is the right decision for me.

To those of you who come occasionally, thanks for visiting. To my friends, we won’t say good bye but as the French say au revoir.

Good luck and God bless you.

Republicans, the one’s shut out of the decision making process for the last 6 years (up until January of this year 2011) are going to CRIPPLE America.  Really? That’s where this president wants to go now.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult men (8.9
percent), adult women (8.0 percent), teenagers (25.4 percent), whites
(8.0 percent), blacks (16.7 percent), and Hispanics (11.3 percent) showed
little or no change in August. The jobless rate for Asians was 7.1 percent,
not seasonally adjusted. (See tables A-1, A-2, and A-3.)
The number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks and over) was
about unchanged at 6.0 million in August and accounted for 42.9 percent of the
unemployed. (See table A-12.) Report
and not ONE job was created in August 20011.

Pardon the expression but America is already crippled. The criminal lack of leadership by this administration who couldn’t create a job due to the fact that none of them have a clue as to how to do so because they’ve never actually worked or owned or managed anything in their lives.  Only 7 % of the Cabinet have any business experience outside government or the law profession.  Hence why they think that if you water the ground with money jobs will simply grow, like weeds. Thanks in large part to the dismal liberal leadership in the government, before January, and in the Senate since then, the currant administration has hounded, regulated, and taxed the American business community not just into crippling inactivity but almost to death.

The annual cost of regulation—$1.75 trillion by one frequently cited estimate—represents twice the amount of individual income taxes collected last year. Overall, from the beginning of the Obama Administration to mid-fiscal year (FY) 2011, regulators have imposed $38 billion in new costs on the American people, more than any comparable period on record. Consider Washington’s red tape to be a hidden tax. Report

Republicans plan to cripple America?  How exactly do they plan to do this? I know they want to get rid of ridiculous regulations, free businesses from onerous taxation, and repeal the greatest boondoggle in the history of the world “Obamacare”.

Here’s what families have to look forward under our fearless leaders health care plan to.

* If your household income is $66,000 a year, slightly above the national average, Obama’s healthcare bill will require you to spend 12 percent of your income — about $8,000 a year or almost $700 a month — to buy health insurance before you get any federal subsidy. * Even those making less will have to reach deep into their meager resources to satisfy Obama’s statutory requirement. Families scraping by on only $44,0000 a year will have to pay 7 percent of their income (about $3,000) on insurance.- The Hill

It’s no wonder businesses aren’t hiring.  With the insecurity attached to the presidents “fair and balanced plan” we get items such as this;

No matter the size of his firm, if he or his workers earn around $30,000 to $100,000 and get coverage through one of the new health insurance exchanges, their implicit marginal tax rates will jump from around 30-40 percent all the way up to 60-75 percent!

In many cases, if his employees get a raise or work more hours, ObamaCare will leave them with less take-home pay, because the higher earnings will cause them to lose thousands of dollars in subsidies. Their implicit marginal tax rate will exceed 100 percent!  –Cato.

No matter how you slice this Nancy Pelosi, and her cabal in the House (before January) who rubber stamped everything and I do mean EVERY LITTLE THING the administration whispered in her craggy ear and her partner in crime Dingy Harry Reid in the Senate and the current resident of 1400 Pennsylvania Ave. have their sticky little fingers all over this new recession/depression. From the bank failure and bailouts to the massive land grabs to the unwillingness to shut off the glut of illegal immigrants (sorry I’m mean future Democratic voters) to new and costlier regulations and taxes on the citizenry, these people, the card carrying members of the Liberal coven, have indeed crippled America.

We have no other option.  They have left us with no other choice.  Come November 2012 we too must MARCH, to the polls.  We need to organize and  mobilize, unmask and debunk, educate and enlighten our fellow citizens.  At every opportunity we should remind others of the sheer unmitigated incompetence of the current crop of liberal inmates running the asylum.

It’s past time to find some adults to put in charge so that the teenagers can go back to protesting every little thing, pouting because they didn’t get their way and mooning over George Clooney and Rachel Maddow. It is way past time to get an adult in the White House who won’t embarrass us just by opening his mouth, whose first lady won’t decide she’s the nations “buttinsky” who will leave parents and their children alone to make whatever choices they desire. Someone who will fill their cabinet with experts instead of “past drips under pressure” or political cronies, who’s experience in the business of America wouldn’t fit on a gnats small toe.  Oh and one other important thing, someone who wouldn’t make the choice of vice president as a life insurance policy. You know the guy NO ONE in their right minds would want to see in the Oval Officer should something happen to the President.

That’s the guy we need in the White House with his finger on the red button.  I’m not sure we have one of those in any party but that my friends is what and who we need.

Trouble in Perrydise

(I’d like to note that there are no ad hominem attacks here.  I might not care for the Governor but those kinds of sentiments just negate one’s argument not buttress it, and the Daily Kos this is not)

Governor Perry  can’t turn things around on his record. 80% of the jobs created in Texas went to immigrants 40% or more went to ILLEGALS.  He’s the governor of Texas, close the borders, expel the criminals, stop the trafficing of human beings.  Except he agrees with Obama and is against the Arizona law that would force the state to enforce Federal law at the border.  Go figure?  And lets not even go to instate tuition for illegal immigrants.  Heartless I may be but I refuse to subsidize college tuition for criminals when my own children are in debt up to their eyeballs because they wanted/needed to go to college.  So I should tell my youngest child, “Sorry Mom and Dad can’t afford to send you to college.  They are paying too much in taxes to send illegal immigrants to school instead.  You can get a job at McDonalds or maybe something in the yard work or roofing industry.”

That’s not to mention his willingness to make medical test subject of young Texas girls with the whole HPV debacle. The fact that his former chief of staff is/was a lobbyist for Merc the company that developed the shots and that Merc gave him 30,000 dollars not 5,000 as claimed. When you’re running for president there can be no hint of backroom deals.  Not any more. People are wise to that nonsense. On top of all of this is the reality that in Texas girls and their parents have no real choice about the vaccine.  They can of course OPT OUT but unless they are paying very close attention their daughters are vaccinated before they even know about it.
(there should be a break here but wordpress won’t do it. Sorry)
Then there’s his position on Social Security as a ponzi scheme.  He has yet to address what the country is going to do with millions of senior citizens who can no longer work but who still surprisingly have to eat, pay rent or a mortgage, clothe themselves not to mention medical care.  If you’ve ever owned a car for longer than 4 years you understand that the older it gets the more work has to be done on it.  Just like the human body. So what’s he going to do about that?
Sorry, I’m just not feeling it.  This is a candidate I would have to hold my nose to support. Of course if the choice were him or Obama, I’d vote for him but I’m really tired of voting against someone. I’d really like to vote for someone this time.
