Obama the Socialist

October 15, 2008

Last week Obama was talking to a plumber, trying to drum up some votes.  The plumber told Obama that his next tax plan would cost him more money.  Here is what Obama told him:

It’s not that I want to punish your success,.I want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they’ve got a chance for success, too.“

Nice.  Let’s punish the wealthy.  It’s all about class warfare and wealth envy.  Is it the job of Govco to redistribute wealth?  To “spread” wealth around as the Chosen One puts it?  Does this surprise any of you Obama supporters?  It shouldn’t if you know anything about your Messiah.  He has history of Marxist leanings. 

So, either we get a moratorium on Obama next month or you can kiss more of your money good-bye as he takes it, by gun point mind you, and gives it to others “less fortunate” than you.  Of course, I’m sure to many folks this will be just fine.


More wisdom from Jimmy Carter

October 11, 2008

Did you see that Carter blames Bush for the economic crisis?  Ok, is that not the pot calling the kettle black?  The guy who is possibly the worst President in history on economics is pointing the finger at Bush?  The guy who gave us double digit interest rates?  What a loser.  This is really laughable.  Even Bill Clinton has come out and taken some of the blame for everything going on due to his policies from the 90’s and the lack of the Democrats to approve more regulation.

Hey, Jimmy….who was it that proposed regulation of Fannie and Freddie back in 2004?  Um, that would be President Bush and the GOP.  Who was it that voted it down?  Yeah, that would be the Democrats. 

This video really says a lot.  I mean, BIG TIME.  Any self respecting Democrat cannot possibly defend their party after watching it.  Well…then again, there is Mark Elrod.   I only wish he had the guts to be out in public instead of down in his bunker so we could chat him up about this.  

Anyway, isn’t it past time for Jimmy to shut-up?


October 8, 2008

There are all kinds of moratoriums we could apply to driving.  I mean, that could be it’s own sub-category.  We all complain, gripe, bitch and whine about other drivers.  I’ll just talk about one thing that you don’t hear a whole lot of condemnation on.  That is the liberal use of brakes.  You ever wonder why you get in a traffic jam on the expressway…it’s stop and go and stop again.  You think it’s an accident or something but when you get to where traffic is finally moving…there is nothing there.  Do you know what causes that? Brake lights.  Well, not just that.  Here is what happens – someone is not looking a head and, even though traffic is slowing down, perhaps for a curve, a few idiots go flying past you and ride right up on someone then put their brakes on.  Now, that is one cause – an idiot who doesn’t look a head.  Now, the other part of the equation are the multiple idiots behind him who, seeing a flash of brake lights, they tap their brakes instead of just letting off on the accelerator.  Then, people behind them do the same thing.  What do you have?  A traffic jam. 

People… don’t have to apply the brakes in every situation.  Just let off the gas.  That’s all.  You see a light turn red 100 yards down the road?  Do you know what I learned over 20 years ago in Drivers Ed?  You let your foot off the accelerator and slow down.  You don’t keep your foot pressed on the gas then slam the brakes on. 

I feel that brake lights are one of the main reasons traffic backs up.  People are doing 80mph down the interstate and then, even though no one is in front of them, they tap their brakes for one reason or another.  Then, people behind them see a flash of red and tap theirs.  STOP! Just stop the madness!!!! 

Ok…so, can we get a moratorium on the liberal use of brakes?

SNL and standards

October 8, 2008

Did you catch the housing skit on SNL last week?  It was pretty good.  It really ripped into the Democrats for opposing regulation four years ago as well as spotlighting many of the “average Americans” who went out and got mortgages they could never afford.  Finally, at the end, they rip into George Soros and his idiocy.  It was pretty good.

Didn’t see it?  Sorry…NBC pulled it as it didn’t meet their standards.  Standards?  Hmmm….did referring to incest in Sarah Palins family meet your standards but making fun of Democrats doesn’t?  In case you missed it, here it is.

Ok, this post may be a bit crude so I apologize in advance. 

I gotta tell ya, there are a lot of sayings that just bug me.  Either they just sound really stupid or they are way overused.  The category we are asking for a moratorium on now are neither of those.  It’s simply something that…I don’t know….just sorta sounds strange.  Ok…ya ready?

Whenever a female uses a saying that is normally only for a male or when a saying is applied to a female.  Case in point, “She doesn’t have the balls for that.” or “I am going balls to the wall next week.”  or “That really took some balls to do what she did.” 

I don’t know….it just doesn’t sit well with me.  Now, I now there are other sayings that use the male anatomy that females use but I just can’t think of them right now.  A little help?

Anyway, can we get a moratorium on this or at least come up with some new sayings that are strictly for women?

“Bail Out” to “Rescue”

October 2, 2008

Have you noticed the headlines? The title?  The words being thrown around?  It changed, didn’t it?  Ever since the House, rightly so, voted down the “bail out” bill, it changed, overnight, to a “Rescue” bill. 


Yep, make it sound nice and you can put crap in a baby bottle and people will buy it.

“We have lost this country to Entertainment Tonight watchers, celebrity worshippers, jock-sniffers. know-everything college students and those who depend on government entitlements. Conservatives are going to lose this election to people who register to vote based on the fact that Jay-Z is going to host a concert for Obama.”
