A seminar caller to the Rush Limbaugh Show said we needed another stimulus program to fix potholes.

Here is what I would have said in reponse:

The last trillion dollar stimulus program didn't fix those potholes did they? What reason do we have to believe another trillion would do the job? It won't.

The first "stimulus" was pure patronage, it was a political slush fund. Do you really think it costs $20 million to weatherize 13 homes in Seattle? The numbers were just as bad all across the country. That money went into someone's pockets, you can bet they were the friends and allies of the party in power and even some Republicans probably because have they investigated this at all? Not that I've heard.

The government can't fix potholes because they are not important enough, you are not important enough, to get on their radar because you can't scratch their back. How much of that first stimulus slush fund is making its way back into the coffers of the Democrats? Barack Obama himself said he'll raise a BILLION dollars for re-election, who knows about the party itself, there aren't as many limits on "soft" money.

The big government gives millions annually in grants to left-wing Pacifica Radio, tens of millions to George Soros' Open Society Institute-a billionaire by the way. The government bankrolls General Electric to the tune of billions a year, now why can't a big profitable corporation pay taxes instead of get handouts of your money? Oh excuse me, your money and your childrens future income. General Motors cost us how many billions, fifty? Plus they get out of paying taxes for a decade or so? Democrats rail against the rich who supposedly don't pay their "fair share" yet they hand out your cash to the same kind of people.

Is Pacifica Radio, GM, GE, ADM, Planned Parenthood or anything else they subsidize part of the government? No, they are not. The federal government should be funding the federal government. That is all it should be funding. If they did this, they just might have some money left to build some public roads and fill in some pot holes. Maybe the government shouldn't be spending millions to help profitable corporations like McDonalds advertise overseas with the Market Promotion Program? These companies can afford it themselves.

Down to your state level. Texas. Your state has spent nearly $7 billion building up wind power and this past summer they found out that wind doesn't blow in Texas when the hottest days arrive. The amount of power generated on the hottest days was almost nil. With coal power plants being shut down now, you can truly expect blackouts next summer. Thank you big government stupidity. For half the price you could have built natural gas power plants, lots of that in Texas, you could have had reliable energy when its needed most. Then you could spend the rest fixing pot holes.

How much money does your state and even your city of Houston spend every year taking care of illegal aliens? How many idiotic ethnic community centers, gay libraries and other crapola do your tax dollars support that could have benefitted everyone by fixing pot holes? How many local government bureaucrats are sitting there and do nothing productive when they could grab a shovel and fill in those pot holes?

Finally, let me break it down to you. You and your pot holes are unimportant. You are the least important part of the big government-liberal agenda. You are collateral damage, you are the cracked eggs for the omelet. Sorry, your plight is simply not important enough for them to be bothered with. The left tells us we cannot compare the millions murdered by Hitler because he was mean to the millions killed by the Soviet Union, because they had "good intentions". So those people who were slaughtered, mass graves, oppressed, sent to gulags, starved to death; those are just collateral damage, broken eggs for the omelet.

We all know how that turned out, of course, but it'll be better this time, because they'll do it right this time. As for you and your potholes, see the big picture comrade!

Rick Perry not only disagrees with common sense conservatives on immigration, he uses leftwing attacks on them. In two different debates he has called us "heartless" and even said we don't like immigrants because their last names sound different. In other words we are "racists". Not surprisingly all signs point to the groundswell of support he had been enjoying being in total freefall. He lobbied and outspent the field to win the Florida straw poll and even lambasted other candidates for not showing up. He didn't even come close to winning, with less than half the support of Herman Cain.

So those who tell us this is a two-man between liberal Romney and whatever he is Perry (pretty much the RINOstablishment) have it all wrong. Romney does not seem to benefit from the Perry implosion. The voters who are abandoning Perry don't like Romney either and they want something better in their candidate. So unless Sarah Palin enters the race these heartless racists, it appears, will support the black man Herman Cain.

This was not "one mistake" by Perry as some of his hard core supporters are trying to justify themselves, this is part and parcel of who Rick Perry is. No serious politician would have struck out and smacked the people whose votes they seek this way unless it came from their heart. Perry really believes that the illegal children of illegals (they weren't born here) are more deserving of discounted tuition than hard working Americans from other states. We are also told this costs taxpayers nothing, although the difference from full-freight and discount rates are certainly covered by someone.

Rick Perry is his own worst enemy. He isn't good at debating, he has had little experience with debates while running for Governor twice, about 4 debates total, including the primaries. He ideas on parents rights, property rights and illegals are from the mainstream in the conservative movement. When Perry says he is for "states rights" he seems to means the state, not the individual will have those rights.

Attacking and name-calling the core conservative base of the Republican Party was a bonehead move and the Perry collapse will likely continue.

Emperor's New Clothes

So, the MSM is reporting that Obama will propose a $300 billion spending binge on Thursday. Well, if a trillion did squat what is this going to do?

This is politics, not economics. You can count on that.

Just like when the debt ceiling thing happened and the MSM and left declared it a "TEA party victory" even though the TEA Party opposed the deal more than any other group, it was for the sole purpose of blaming them for the debt rating being cut because they knew it was going to happen. All those letters to the editors attacking the TEA party for the debt rating were well prepared too.

This $300 Billion is not their "real" proposal, you have to know that by now.

Watch for members of Congress to start complaining that it might not be enough (this is planned too, they already know what he is going to say) and Obama will keep announcing "new ideas" to stimulate the economy all fall.

The MSM will probably do everything they can to make it look like Obama is the "idea man" and Congressional Republicans are simply a "roadblock". Meanwhile the Democrats will have doubled or tripled this $300 billion by the end of October as it "moves through" Congress. It will be built up as another emergency measure that has to be done or we are doomed. (Like TARP and Stimulus)

Meanwhile Obama will be on tour meeting with "business people" and "workers" and announcing new spending programs and "jobs tax credits" and other useless and worthless things. Finally he will make the big push for the Infrastructure Bank that will be "independent" of "political interference" that will have the authority to spend every dime on God's green Earth that will ever exist in the next century without oversight. It will be the biggest slush fund ever. If you think the "weatherization" program that spends $20 million in Seattle and weatherizes 3 houses is criminally wasteful (and that is just one city, btw, where is the money really going? Why have their been no House Committee investgations about these things?) you ain't seen nothing yet. Multiply that by 100 and think about whose piggy banks that money is funneled into.

So by Christmas the GOP will have thoroughly been painted, tarred and feathered by the MSM and Democrats as standing in the way of a better economy.

That is their plan I would bet. It's not like its not pretty much the same old playbook. It's easy to see this coming, just like the debt ceiling deal when they started crediting it to the group that opposed it the most, I knew exactly that we'd been had.

The left is very predictable.

Insanity in Washington

We must remember that with baseline budgeting even a $1 trillion cut in a decade means an $8.5 trillion increase in spending during that decade. "draconian cut" indeed.

Back to the Shire?

The doddering senile old fool doesn't realize that hobbits were the heroes of that story? Figures. Insult us by calling us heroes why don't ya.

Does Arizona have a recall?


The fact is that with baseline budgeting any trillion dollar "cut" is actually an $8.5 trillion increase. How insane is calling that a "cut"? Only inside the beltway would an $8.5 trillion spending increase be labeled as a deep, draconian cut!


Testing, testing
