Apocolypse Now

It is amazing that in a year that a black President can be inaugurated - which to its very core repuidates slavery and its entrappings and enboldens the very heartstrings that the Civil Rights movement of the 60's was made of - that even because of that - this new black President is now going to enlsave the American people and its economy by forcing massive and ill-advised spending programs along with increased taxation on virtually every slice of American life.

And this if freedom? The new President Obama wants to reshape America, a success story of a nation 200+ years young, into his own delusional vision and in its very thought crush the future of our country. By increasing taxes on an a ever-decreasing percentage of "super earners" - the so-called"two-percent solution" -he throws the entire burden of taxation on a small sliver of the population thus causing the other super majority of the population to appove of increasing spending programs since it does not impact them at all. And this, my friends, is the road to socialism. See here.

At the same time he told most of the nation that they would all get a tax cut - that is now a lie - and a further greater lie, or truth, will be that after it is determined the top 2% cannot pay for his increasing irresponsible spending programs then the middle class will have to take up the burden (here).
Meanwhile in just seven weeks his announced plans of 1) inaction to the banking crisis, 2) ridiculous rushing through of a stimulus package (a trillion dollars y'all) that won't stimulate anything, and 3) his clear denuciation of all that is capitalism in the year 2009 are all wrecking the market and everyone's economic hopes. And Obama can't blame anyone else anymore - his own actions have just deflated the market and the short-term investment and retirement aspirations for many (here).

Here's to hoping he has "relations with an intern" soon so impeachment procedings can commence. Unfortunately such an admittedly playful (and wishful) situation will not solve the problem because that will leave Joe 'gaffe a day" Biden in the way, and then after that Nancy Pelosi. George Washington is certainly rolling over in his grave. More attestment to this embarassment can be found here, here, Lies here.

Stealing Through the Night

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Michael Steele today released the following statement concerning the executive order quietly signed by President Barack Obama on Friday ordering the use of union labor for federal construction projects:

“President Obama’s executive order will drive up the cost of government at a time when we should be doing everything possible to save taxpayer dollars. Federal contracts should go to the businesses that can offer taxpayers the best value – not just the unions who supported the Democrats’ campaigns last year. Quietly signing executive orders to payback campaign backers undermines Obama promise to change Washington. It is a disappointment for Americans hoping for more transparency and less politics as usual in Washington.”

Barring many of the new contracts that are supposed to improve employment from open (non-union) shops is not "putting American back to work again". It is paying off campaign promises. And it doesn't promote growth at all. This is tantamount to censorship - he is saying who can do what and when with who. Again -More change we can believe in? Talk about absolute cronyism - and it's still the first month! The new President doesn't seem to care (or understand) how any one of his hastily passed new policies affect the nation - just how it affects his campaign backers.

Elegantly Wasted...

Evening - Feb 5th: The man is unwraveling before us in such a short time. Why he feels he needs to pass a trillion dollar pork barrel bill - and rush it through Congress - is beyond any reasonable man's thinking. And the more and more he presses his point (which is none - except "Obey me, because I won") - he looks more and more foolish, clueless and ignorant. He doesn't, even to this day, understand what is in the bill and what any component will do. Let's look for where those puppet strings are leading to right now.

All he does is campaign, campaign and campaign (it's all he knows what to do, but someone should remind him that he "won" as he so insultingly told the same Republicans last week he was trying to court for their vote, what arrogance!) - and he is now swinging wildly and missing - and just after two weeks and sailing aboard a tusnami of initial good will and hoopla, he is frankly just talking gibberish - and frankly insulting the intelligence of the American people. (see here).

And just tonight, before a throng of Democrats at a posh resort, he did not posture himself as the President of the United States, but as a singular Democrat. After again jousting with veiled threats at conservative radio (the only people who dare analyze anything on this bill) and saying that whatever he thinks must be right because he won the election (thank you for reminding us again and again "O") - he then ended with a flourish of rhetorical platitudes and with the statement that "that is what the Democratic Party is all about".

You might be able to win elections through vacuous and vague speeches but you cannot legislate nor lead that way.

(Please see here for an excellent article on Obama's fondness for campaigning and not leading and his awkward duplicitness on the "I won" argument.)

Batman Blows Up

Why does anyone care about actor Christian Bale (the latest Batman as in last summer's Dark Knight) blowing up on another movie set at a lighting technician who stumbled on to his scene? Did anyone see American Psycho? Do you really think actors are "that far off" what they play? Puh-leeeese.

Just a minute. "Let me tell you about the artistic stylings of Mr. Phil Collins."
You sort of need to see that movie to get it - and that is one terrific movie by the way.
Actually, I think Christian was just pissed off at the pathetic stimulus package Obama continues to peddle. Sounds like me yelling at Chris Mathews.
