Can We Change the Speaker of the House
From CNS News: “Boehner Won’t Rule Out ‘Balanced Budget Amendment’ That Permits Unlimited Federal Spending” Is there any way, other than elections, to remove the “Speaker of the House”. Not necessarily from office. Just that position. Mr. Boehner is showing the country that he is not conservative and has no real desire to fix any problems. He is demonstrating that he is a ‘Good old | Read More »
Florida Announces January Primary – HUH!?
So Florida has a primary in January. Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina then soon follow. ALL vying for the right to declare that they are THE state that has chosen the next President. I say they are jumping the gun. Buying the first distribution of IPad. We know now that the newer IPads are much better. Faster, cheaper, more capable. The difference here | Read More »
Our President is Not Aware That he is a GUEST in Congress?
Based on the atricle below, Mr. Obama is not aware of the fact that he is NOT allowed to just saunter into the House chambers without an appointment. It is rather uncouth of him to assume that he can just order Congress around as he does below. And that he only has 1/3 of the power. Not a larger 1/3, but exactly 1/3 of the | Read More »
Boehner, It’s Time To Move On
In an interview with CBS News (RE: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/08/01/eveningnews/main20086598.shtml ) The question was put to J. Boehner: “Pelley: You were unable to get your own caucus behind your bill a few days ago. Do you intend to remain Speaker of the House?” His Answer: “Boehner: I do. When you look at this final agreement that we came to with the white House, I got 98 percent of | Read More »
Only In America
No, not the song from West Side Story. Today we wake up to learn that the concrete workers union, which is working on the “Freedom Towers” in New York, are on strike. Apparently they believe that they should get a raise during these wonderfully fruitful fiscal times. Ok, so we have come to expect that. The Unions, all of them, operate on the same rules | Read More »
U.S. Contingency Plan Gives Bondholders Priority
this is rather interesting. When We The People took over a couple of Private auto manufacturers, the bond holders in that deal did not get priority treatment. They were left holding the bag. The President’s friends and funders got priority. I wonder if ‘Bondholder’ is a secret word for ‘friend’ or ‘financier’?
Judges Make Laws?
According to the absolutely ignorant H. Reid, “the Democrats need Goodwin Liu on the federal bench because “the court of appeals is where law is made, and we need the finest minds in the world for that.”” Funny, I thought it was their job to interpret/enforce the law. I guess Congress has given up this Constitutional requirement, and handed it over to the courts. Perhaps | Read More »
What About the Baby Boomers?
Unemployment to 9% Jobs Created (?) 244000 Baby Boomers retiring at the rate of 10000 per day, 300000 per month. Isn’t that just a little bothersome? We are not hiring at a rate to replace boomers entering retirement.
None Too Rich or Too Poor
During his 2008 campaign, B.H. Obama declared that no one should be too rich or too poor. He also pointed out that he believed in transferring the wealth. Spread it around. Paraphrasing, “Take from the rich and give to the poor”. But I find this rhetoric just a little odd when we see his plans in action. As president, Mr. Obama has declared war on | Read More »
President to Speak About Japan Today!
Hooray! We are Saved! Japan is Saved! Can we expect to hear the infamous words: “I will not sleep until this problem <insert problem here> is solved!” OR “I will not rest until this <insert problem here> is put to rest!” I just cannot wait to hear his undying, “LASAR BEAM” fucus is put to Japan’s problem.
