I Am So PI$$ED that Even I Can’t Joke
I try to be funny in my blogs, and I try to be relevant. My theory is that I will reach more people if I don’t simply rant, but instead, prove my point with a humorous story or at least a sprinkling of witty one-liners (I hope they are witty). Because I honestly don’t know how funny I am, and I doubt anyone really does. In the world of humor you are only as good as your last joke.
I occasionally get praise from my groupies and I occasionally get arguments and dissent. I welcome both with open arms. The praise though is something I can live without. The truths that I promote are not.
My desire is both to learn and to teach people on CAPS and TMF about the freedoms they are quickly relinquishing without a fight. I preach about the dangers of too much government most days, but often it is masked in a “Steven Colbert”-type character’s language. Most people can easily see my true intentions and beliefs, even when I am being sarcastic, but today, I do not wish to take that chance.
In fact, I am too angry to even jest right. Instead, I must be deadly serious because I believe what I am about to tell you is a matter of life and death. In fact, life without freedom is worse than death. So, please listen carefully to what I am about to tell you.
Today, in the spirit of bipartisanship every single House Republican (EVERY SINGLE ONE) and 11 house democrats voted against the non-“Stimulus” bill, a.k.a The Obama-Pelosi Plan to Destroy this Country. Here is a sprinkling of the proposed “stimulus:”
$1 billion for Amtrak
$2 billion for child-care subsidies
$50 million for the NEA
$400 million for global-warming research
$2.4 billion for carbon-capture demonstration projects
$81 billion for Medicaid
$7.5 billion for Public Housing
$1 billion for nutrition programs
$83 billion for the earned income credit for people who don't pay income tax
There is more. The list goes on and on and only about 5% of the entire bill has anything to do with immediate “job creation” and “infrastructure projects.” The Senate will likely add more pet projects and bring the total to over $900 Billion. 90% of it is counter-productive and will destroy rather than create wealth.
Everything that has been on the “democratic agenda” for the last 40 years can be found somewhere in this bill. We are being exploited. You and I, the taxpayer, are being forced to fund billions of dollars worth of projects with which I vehemently disagree. Maybe you think all these projects are good, and if you do that’s fine. But don’t lie to me and tell me that this will create jobs and economic growth. If you want to live through The Greatest Depression in history just so that we can spread out the wealth, then be aware of the consequences.
Do you know what I could do with $400 million dollars (the amount given to “research” on a total lie)? I will give you one example (there are thousands) and I welcome everyone to give their own example in the comments of the jobs and economic growth they could personally create.
I would make four blockbuster movies! Doing so would employ thousands of people. Not to mention I would have something of value once I was done, a movie, which I could market and sell to millions of people (four movies in fact). I could take the profits from those films and make more movies! Thus creating economic growth immediately and continuously.
Both immediacy and continuity are extremely important. We need jobs created now, and we need to continue to growth the economy. Some of these government projects will create temporary jobs but not economic growth. We are simply throwing money into a black hole of nothingness (don’t forget it’s your money). Many of these other projects will not even create temporary jobs, but will simply fall into the pit of government waste. Medicaid anyone? How about Medicaid for everyone? Don’t worry that’s coming later in the year.
Sure “$83 billion for the earned income credit for people who don't pay income tax” will help some very poor people through the rough times we are currently experiencing, but the majority of that money will go to paying off credit cards and buying only the basic necessities. Neither of which will create growth.
The taxpayer is being stolen from and lied to. You are being stolen from and lied to. This is anything but “stimulus.” This will destroy our economy. We are going to double our budget and take on more debt than we have had since WWII. The long term effects of the path that we are currently on will be the annihilation of all economic freedom because debt is no different than shackles.
To show it another way: we are spending more on this bill than all of the Iraq War combined.
And Alstry is telling you to prepare for Deflation!
I don’t expect you to read the 647 pages of nonsense in its entirety, but I would urge you to skim through it or at least investigate further what lies within.
And if you are as appalled as I am, then call your representative and thank/berate him/her for his/her vote. And then call your Senator and tell him/her that you will never vote for him/her again if he votes for this. If he doesn’t plan on voting for it, then tell him/her to grow some testicles and filibuster this piece of shite!
We were promised “change we could believe in,” and I see lots of “change” but I refuse to believe in fasciso-socialism and straddling our country with so much debt (on so much stupid stuff) that we will never recover.
Good Luck America cause we will need it,
