Government’s reponse to job losses… give me more!

Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse…

I think we were all coming to grips with the “Socialist” Obama. Washington is now running the banks, running the auto companies, dictating salaries and planning to move into other sectors should the need arise. Some were convinced that these actions were necessary to stabilize the economy. Others believe that the economy is a convenienceContinue reading “Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse…”

What could you do with $9,000 dollars a year for three years?

+$1.15T being injected into the Financial market. Washington has now put in $9T to “fix” the economy. This is 89,000+ per household in the US. I am trying to find the statistics but I would think we could have just paid up the mortgages on everyone at risk for far less. But like many ofContinue reading “What could you do with $9,000 dollars a year for three years?”

"Barack Obama is the smartest President"?

Have you heard it before? We have all heard how “dumb” George Bush is/was. I think it is about time to reveal that there is a big difference between book-smart and street-smart; Obama being the former and in no way the latter. The media being much of the former as well, has little to noContinue reading “"Barack Obama is the smartest President"?”

Well played, Mr. Obama

Many is the media are “confused” by the seeming contradictions in the ever expanding spending coming from Washington and the statements about the desire to “balance the budget”. Since most of them are devoid of 5th grade math skills they can’t make the connections that most of the rest of us can make…”this just doesContinue reading “Well played, Mr. Obama”

Is Obama a muppet or the puppet master?

Those that know me well, know that, during the election, I had the opinion that Obama was a muppet. May argued he was left wing, and that may be true. Other argues that he was more center-left. Though I believed that he was likely far more left then his words, what he said and whatContinue reading “Is Obama a muppet or the puppet master?”

Cutting grocery bills easily by 33%

I was slightly surprised because I thought more people did this. I guess not. The steps are simple.1. Plan youContinue reading “Cutting grocery bills easily by 33%”

Does the media know what Bipartisan means?

It would seem from all of the press coverage of the “stimulus” bill that the term bipartisan is a bit confused. Based on a quick review on dictionary.com, I found that it means “representing, characterized by, or including members from two parties or factions”… odd. Based on the coverage of the vote it would seemContinue reading “Does the media know what Bipartisan means?”

Invalid Tax Theory Abounds

I heard it yet again twice today. This time clearly state don Lou Dobbs Tonight and eluded to on Hannity and Colmes. It is the seemingly honest statement that the Bush tax cuts are the cause of the current deficits. The problem is that this common opinion is absolutely false. It is a perfect exampleContinue reading “Invalid Tax Theory Abounds”
