BalancingI’m one of those people who has always tried to avoid anything that smacks of politics because I don’t agree with either side enough to call myself one or the other.  It depends on the issue for me.

When it comes to the Republicans, to me it seems as if they don’t seem to really give a damn about your average American, they’re in it for the big guys and big bucks.  Handling out tax breaks to the ones who need it the least.

When it comes to the Democrats, it looks like they don’t really care about the average American either, they want to save the poor, the indigent, the illegals.  They want to hand out tax money, my hard earned money to people who sit on their asses with their hands out whining “feel sorry for me.”

Sure, there are some people who truly need help and that’s different but to continue to hand out money to able-bodied people who can work but who find it easier to play the government game, no, sorry, stop being damn leeches on society!

With all this money that the current administration is handing out in an effort to stimulate the economy, luckily Obama is demanding some accounting for where it’s going and what it’s being spent on.  How well that is actually going to work out only time will tell.  We can only hope we won’t see the same kind of abuses the banking system and Wall Street has been able to get away with since Bush just handed them billions and let them do with it whatever they wanted.  Yeah, love those trips and bonuses, they sure earned that as the companies deteriorated and continue to deteriorate.

Politics Defined

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, “What is Politics?”

Dad says, “Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I am the head of the family, so call me The President. Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we call her the Government.”

“We are here to take care of your needs, so we will call you the People. The nanny, we will consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we will call him the Future.”

“Now think about that and see if it makes sense.”

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said.

Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper.

So the little boy goes to his parent’s room and finds his mother asleep.

Look What Has Grown from the ACORN

Lady Liberty CriesWhat a great look inside the idiotic mind of a typical ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) thug.

Here is Stuart Varney of FOX Business interviewing Bertha Lewis, Executive Director of the New York branch of ACORN, about the recent invasion of private property by the criminal enterprise… ACORN;

Stuart Varney: Do you think you got a right to these houses?

Bertha Lewis: I think the homeowners have a right to stay in those homes until the administrations plan can be implemented…yes I do.

Stuart Varney: They got a right to the house even though they haven’t paid their bills?

Bertha Lewis: They have been paying their bills…I think it’s a false thing to say that people haven’t been paying their bills.

Stuart Varney: No, their delinquent on their mortgages.

Bertha Lewis: Well, they maybe delinquent on their mortgages but there are people still do that.

Stuart Varney: They haven’t been paying their bills

Bertha Lewis: There are millions of millions of people who are…

Stuart Varney: Doesn’t matter, they haven’t been paying their bills.

Bertha Lewis: Being foreclosed on every day and so we have a plan in place and people need to stay there..

Stuart Varney: What right do you claim to stay in a house that you can’t afford and you cannot pay the bills and what right do you have to get my money to pay for you? I’ve read the constitution, I don’t see that right…

Bertha Lewis: Well, I don’t see the right that banks have to get 700 billion dollars to get bailed out

Stuart Varney: No, no, that’s a different thing…

Bertha Lewis: That’s all part of the same thing…

Stuart Varney: No it’s not…

Bertha Lewis: Every 13 seconds, Stuart, people are getting foreclosed on and they have the right to protect their homes and to protect their communities. It’s the most American thing you can do to protect your community.

Stuart Varney: ACORN is well known for looking at banks and saying “give us a loan,”….they don’t give you a loan so you scream racism you then invade their offices and demonstrate outside the private homes of bank executives, you embarrass the banks and you force them to give you loans on favorable terms, now…those loans cannot be repaid, you will not leave those homes and your claiming a right to stay in them and have a right to my money to make sure you stay in them, again…I come back to it Bertha, they may be be foreclosing every 13 seconds but you have absolutely no right to that house.
