Paybacks really are a bitch.

As we are all no doubt aware the Generational Theft Act of 2009 (GTA09) did pass the House and Senate this week and is only awaiting the wonderful Obama families return from Chicago to become law. Yay. I am super excited and filled with anticipation. Thank goodness all that silly concern and worry over the future of this country is done with now-catastrophe averted. What with the new golf carts, the STD's research, and the jam-packed fun funding of welfare "Pay to NOT Work" scheme, the economy should be bouncing right back any second. Now? How 'bout now? Now? Hmmmm. Oh well, I will just wait for my piece of other people's hard work. Oh and I almost forgot-MY piece of salvation for my own hard work….$13 per week until January 2010, then it drops to $8. Again, yay. I might be as filled with excitement as Michelle Obama was when speaking of the Bush rebates last spring.

I was also relieved to find out that my healthcare is really too bothersome for me to worry about any more. I need to let the brianiacs in the Federal government watch out for me. We are clearly far over-reaching our boundaries as human being to think we should have one shred of influence over our healthcare-EVEN IF YOU WANT TO PAY FOR IT YOURSELF. Finally, our old people will be made to understand, things happen to your body as you age and there is simply no sense in treating them. You're getting old-please die. Finally, the government is going to step in to assess whether your doctor, your insurance and YOU have any idea how to handle your healthcare. I mean really, who are you assume you know anything about your own body-if the government believed we were anything but completely stupid and moronic individuals with an IQ of about 10 they wouldn't need to keep "helping" us this way. Finally, as they found in Atlas Shrugged, invention and ambition are harmful to EVERYONE in "the public", so thank your lucky stars-one more time-for Daschle and the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research. (We are going to make their acronym FUCKEDUP-it's just easier to remember)

"…to slow the development and use of new medications and
technologies because they are driving up costs. He praises Europeans for
being more willing to accept "hopeless diagnoses" and "forgo experimental
treatments," and he chastises Americans for expecting too much from the
health-care system."

Again, just please die would you, you are running up costs for the rest of us.

Finally, as the last point that I am even capable of making today, welfare reform has been made profitable for the states again. Thankfully, now for every new recipient states can enroll, each dollar they spend will be increased by $4 from the federal government. We all know what a crazy loon President Clinton was-I will be forever indebted to this GTA09 for reversing the only intelligent thing he ever did. We are also going back to Clinton's level of funding (or worse) for defense spending. Golly, that will be great-9/11 wasn't memorable enough the first time around. Seriously, we should just tongue kiss all the leaders of the countries that hate us-that's why they don't like us-we aren't showing them any love.

There is so much more there, I could go on for days-but for now I'm going to stop. Frankly, it is all too depressing for me to think about some days. The GTA09 isn't the only issue here; the bigger problem is THIS is what Obama has done in less than one month as President. This is very likely only the scratch in the dam before the flood gates open. So I am left wondering, did I miss the day in class when we learned if something is true of a Republican it is bad, but if it is true of a Democrat it is virtuous? Or better yet-deficit spending is the devil until when? I know, I know-When Obama has to pay back the people who got him elected.

Face Punch Wednesday

(If you are new to Face Punch Wednesday, please read this post before you complain, I don't want to hear it.)

Welcome to Face Punch Wednesday

Miley Cyrus-This girl is sadly just becoming one more train wreck teen super star. Not only her parents are idiot "progressives" by letting her 20 year old male "friend" spend the night (I'm pretty sure that's statutory rape in most states-and please don't tell me they're not doin' it); now she has been photographed with several friends pulling her eyes in a slant. Why? Who knows what they really think they are doing, but it is stupid and childish. Clearly she is incapable of thinking ahead to what the result of her actions might be. 7 punches

Indian Education Ministry-Yes that right, the Education Ministry. They have been touting their $10 "laptop" for some time, much to the doubt of actual people with actual brains. Well it was finally revealed on Tuesday and is in NO WAY a laptop, but simply an external storage device with a tiny, crappy screen attached. No keyboard, no mouse, not much of anything. Funny enough, the Sinha "refused to comment as to why was it being projected as a laptop when it was not." 7 punches

Timothy F. Geithner- This is short and sweet-if you are too stupid to use Turbo Tax you are too stupid to run the Treasury and the IRS. 10 punches.

Is this really helping things?

I, like you, have been doing a lot of thinking the past few days, since this stupid Porkulous Crap-a-Rama Bailout came down the pike. I have come to the conclusion that any form of the current package is unneeded and a complete waste of money. I'm wondering….are things really getting worse? Look at the whole economy-look at people you know. I know there have been lay-offs, I know people are having a hard time getting credit, but are things on the brink of implosion if we don't take some kind of action. I'm sorry-I just don't believe it any more. Even now, people are getting by, though things are tight. I believe the general population is coming up with creative ways to deal with the facts as they are. I believe the general population is going to be ok.

The government tries to force this piece of trash down our throats with the threat that if we don't do something immediately everything is going to hell-in-a-hand basket. Ironically, they have been saying that for about 4 months. I know certain sectors are hurting. I do believe a few very specific programs could be enacted to provide some relief. But that is it, nothing more. The government cannot spend us out of this mess. We are figuring it out without them.

Here are a few examples of policies I think would actually help people, more so than Porkulous:

  • Extend and maybe even slightly increase unemployment benefits for the next 12 months with a review of that policy at the end of the term.
  • Suspend all federal payroll taxes for 6 months to 1 year
  • Tell the credit card companies there will be a freeze on rate increases to all borrowers for 12 months and maybe permanently. At this time they are raising rates and fees to all borrowers and more so to those who can afford it the least. They really need to stop-it is on the verge of being predatory and that is illegal. On top of everything, several of these companies have benefitted from the TARP Bailout fiasco-so if you have that credit card-you get screwed coming and going. You paid to bail them out, now they are shrinking your credit line and raising your fees. Ridiculous.
  • Put a stop to the oil companies lowering output, making record profits and raising gas prices, even now, with barrels of oil staying around $30-$40 per barrel. This is a basic commodity that nearly every citizen must have; in addition it affects almost every other industry. Keeping these prices low, at least for now, is very important.

Keep in mind a few things-I am not in favor of any government regulations-if enacted-being made permanent. I think they should be reviewed and probably repealed once recovery is happening. Also, these are just a few examples; I'm sure a few more could be added that would be of value to aid the actual people. The bigger point I am making is this-none of the things I have come up with would require new bureaucracies and very little (if any) new spending-very little. What they would require is cutting fat from our current budget. It would require hard work on the part of the government for once, instead of the people they claim to serve. As Obama and Biden believe and tell us all the time "It won't be easy, government, but cutting back and doing YOUR part government, is the patriotic thing."

The truth is, during this recession some segments will be hurt, some seriously-even devastated-but we should not panic and give the entire population radical brain surgery when some folks only have a headache.
