Stimulus Archives

susan_roesgenAmerican citizens, both young and old furious over Barack Obama’s economic plans took to the streets yesterday in what they’re calling “Tea Party” protests. That is, of course, an allusion to the Boston Tea Party, a protest that helped spark the Revolutionary War. While outrageous spending is what sparked the Tea Parties, the concern at the heart of most protesters is that the government is NOT listening to them. Not listening to them in regards to taxes,securing the Mexican border,term limits for Congress. Protesters carrying signs saying, ” I had a 401k now I have change”, “Born Free,Taxed to Death”, ” We Came Unarmed,THIS TIME” and ” We are not your ATM” just to sight a few.

CNN sent reporter Susan Roesgen to a Chicago “tea party,” and the results were inflammatory. First Ms. Roesgen went up against a man who labeled President Obama a “fascist,” . Roesgen then approached another protester, who was not pleased with the Administration and its policies . Roesgen, after interviewing these two protesters threw her hands up and described the protesters as “anti-government” and “anti-CNN” because the protests have been “promoted by the right-wing conservative network Fox.”

Protesters attending the rallies have been labeled “right wing extremists” . Is it extreme to want our borders secured? Is it extreme to NOT want our great grandchildren taxed to death?? Isn’t it amazing how when CNN and the left wing nut cases where criticizing Bush we were all told that dissent was the highest form of patriotism??

Bailout or Bullshit? You Decide….

American International Group, Inc.

Bailing Us Out or Burying Us?

What ever happen to the free market?? It used to be that is you went into business and it failed, you liquidated and closed your doors. We do not need nationalization of the banks. Let the banks that had poor management, made risky loans and spent money like drunken sailors, fold and let FDIC step in an make the depositors of the failed banks whole.

The federal government needs to read and understand the definition of insanity which is as follows, doing the same thing over and over again anticipating a different result. Our government is bailing these banks out left and right, throwing money, our money, at them hand over fist, infuriatingly enough to the very same people who drove these financial institution into the ground, as very few of these banks changed personnel from their mid-high end management.

So while John Q Public is at home, praying he will have a job to go to tomorrow and his wife is sitting at the table trying to figure out how to make ends meet since she was recently laid off, many of the criminals, ahem…. I mean bankers, are having a blast,  safe in the knowledge that Uncle Sam will continue to squeeze every last dime it can from the already struggling middle class.

Does this sound like the banking system really needed bailout monies to you? Consider the following:

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.

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.
