Where is the outrage? What happened to change? Transparency? A New Ethics?

In less than a month and a half, Barack Obama and his buddies in the Congress have done nothing but spend, spend, take a small breather to talk about spending, then sign more bills to spend.

Obama's own economic team says the Recession will be over within a year. Yet, this unread-before-passed $800 BILLION stimulus bill was thrust upon us. And in the rush to pass this gargantuan spending package, more than half of the money approved isn't going to be spent until AFTER 2010. Yes folks, a year after even Obama's own economic team predict that the recession will be over, more than half of the money that is supposedly designed to fix the recession will be spent after it is OVER.


When are we going to stand up and say STOP.

Our children...our children's children...our children's children's children...our children's children's children's children...will still be paying off the debt accumulated in the last 40 days.

What happened to survival of the fittest? These Liberals are always pushing for evolution education...why not support the practice of evolution and let the weakest businesses and banks in the herd die?

It is amazing how much money is being wasted...and sadly, it is more amazing, and angering, that there is no real outrage.

Where is the common sense? Why do we buy into Obama's fear mongering so wholeheartedly and completely ignore instinct and common sense?

I am just absolutely scared of what this administration is doing, and what they are going to do. And Americans are strangely silent.

Do you realize what is happening? Do you really understand what is going on in DC? If you aren't outraged, you must not know. Or, if you do know, then you are ignorant of what is best of our country.

Too Important for Just One Blog

The Fairness Doctrine.

This ideology is one more attack on the First Amendment and the freedoms that make America not Europe.

Liberals pine to make us Europe II, eroding our freedoms and growing the control and power that our federal government exudes upon us. They long to have an elite class telling us little people how to live, think, and die. They are hypocritical to no end.

They fight to kill babies, but save the lives of murderers and genocidal dictators.

They fight to free criminals, and attack victims for being having prejudice.

They fight to raise taxes on the wealthy, but apparently do not pay their own taxes.

They fight for equality, but only equality based on surface criteria and not content.

They tell minorities that the Democrats are the only ones in Washington fighting for them, but forget these same minorities in-between elections.

They claim to support the Civil Rights movement and claim pride in a black President, but the President is still answering to the political wants and agendas of white 'massas' in Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.

They claim to want ethics, transparency, and no lobbyists in the new administration, yet we get the polar opposite (tax cheats, liars, a $790 BILLION package that no one knows the contents of, and lobbyists are fully integrated in the administration despite campaign promises to do otherwise).

Obama himself lied with his first public promise on the campaign trail when he said he would take public financing for his campaign, only to do the opposite.

And now, our freedom of speech is under attack. Unfortunately, it is under attack in only the area of media that has a tinge of right-wing-leaning: Talk Radio.

The "Fairness Doctrine" is on the agenda in Washington, DC, now, and 'fairness' could not be further from the truth.

The "Fairness Doctrine" will only attack commercial talk radio. It will not go after NPR, which is tax-payer funded radio. It will not include NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, CNBC, and CNN. It will not include print such as the New York Times, Time, Newsweek, the LA Times, the Washington Times, and any of a million print media.

The "Fairness Doctrine" is specifically designed for the one media stronghold that conservatives have. Commercial radio.

I said in a previous blog that this is another way Democrats are going to punish success. Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity are successful in a competitive, commercial, ratings-driven, results-driven occupation. They both offer a service that millions of people want. They are successful because they offer something that people listen to and sponsors want to have their product attached to.

This cannot stand, at least from the point of view of Liberals.

Liberals failed in radio. Air America, funded by millionaires country-wide, cannot get in one year the ratings Rush and Sean get in a week. Why? People do not like to listen to liberal whining for three or four hours a day. People do not want to become further upset because of the liberal doom and gloom on their way home and to work. Air America failed in a fair-market system. They had their chance.

So, instead of believing in evolution and survival of the fittest in times that they are not the ones surviving, they decide to become parasites. Leeching off the success of people like Rush and Sean and Boortz and Mark Levin.

The "Fairness Doctrine" is like the NFL going to Foxboro, Massachusetts, telling Brian Belichick that he is too successful. The Patriots have been too dominant for too long. It is not fair. So, to make it fair, he can only play Tom Brady for 2 quarters, then he has to play the Detroit Lions' quarterbacks for the final two quarters. Its not fair that these QBs in Detroit cannot win. So, they get a chance to win in New England.

Maybe the NBA should have gone to Chicago in the 1990s and said, "Michael is too good. Better than we expected. It is not fair. Portland did not know he was going to be this good. So, to be fair, Michael has to play 41 games in Chicago, and 41 games in Portland. To make it fair, you guys can use Sam Bowie for the 41 games Michael is not here."

Those are two great examples of how the "Fairness Doctrine" would work in other forms of competition.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the evolution of Big Brother. This is socialist control of our freedoms. This is an ever-growing government. If we do not rebel...if we do not revolt...if we do not fight this administration's agenda...folks, without a doubt, in the not-so-distant future, we will find ourselves in underground meetings, in back-alleys, in darkened rooms, telling remorseful tales of how America used to be free...and how we let it die.

The Deciet (and Deficit) of Panic and Fear Mongering

The Dems, who have been in control of Congress since early 2007, right before things started to tank economically, have done nothing but spread fear, panic, and emotional depression about the American economy. President Barack Obama keeps hammering home the point that he believes the current economic situation is a mirror image of the Great Depression.

Their constant fear mongering and pessimism is creating a vicious cycle that does nothing but worsen the situation. The pessimism leads to more fear, and mass populations do not work well with fear. And the Democrats are shoving through this pork-filled, wasteful, irresponsible, and damaging Stimulus Package.

The bill is over 1,100 pages long. It was written, approved in committee, passed in the House of Representatives, passed in the Senate, and on Barack Obama's desk within about 48 hours. It took approximately 24 hours to get it forced through the House.

1,100 pages of bureaucratic language and spending.


How long would it take you to read 1,100 pages? This blog usually takes up the equivalent of 2-3 pages per posting. I am estimating you spend in upwards of 10 minutes reading it. Ok, so let's do some math.

If it takes you 10 minutes to read 3 pages, which is roughly 3 minutes per page, and you were able to keep that pace for the length of the bill, you would spend about 3,300, minutes reading this bill. That is 55 hours of non-stop reading. The bill was passed in less than half of that time in the House of Representatives.

In the House of Representatives, 246 people voted for this massive bill without having read the thing. 246 Representatives took Obama and Pelosi's word and voted on the largest bill in the history of the United States without knowing what they were voting for. They authorized a bill that will end up costing over $1 TRILLION, with interest, with only the assurances that one might get from a shady used car salesman.

"No, no no! This car is hot! If you don't sign now, someone might steal it from you!! You don't have to read the warranty. I promise it will all work out. Sign now. Oh, no, the engine and transmission is fine. I promise! You don't need 24 hours to think it over. Come on, you can trust me. Ok?"

And 246 people signed for the car. Perhaps the car is ok. Perhaps it is a lemon. Perhaps the un-read warranty strictly states that the warranty is only good as long as the car remains on the lot? Still yet, 246 people signed for this bill. In less than 24 hours of its completion.

In your life time, how often does not reading the warranty information, or the contract information, work out for the person signing it? How often does not reading the fine print work out for the consumer? How often does a rushed long-term commitment work? How often do drive-through weddings work?

Yet, we, the American taxpayer (obviously dis-including anyone in the Obama administration, whom do not pay taxes unless caught and publicly outed) are now saddled with footing the cost of this bill. It was crammed through Capitol Hill and down our throats by a group of people who had not read it through.

This, my friends, is the Democrat party. Reckless spending with no responsibility or forethought. This is the Democrat party. Got a problem? Let's throw money at it.

If you are ever on a plane with a bunch of Democrats, and the plane has a similar fate to US Airways Flight 1549, you'd never make the Hudson River. Instead, when the first engine went out, they would reach into your pockets, take the cash you had, ball it up, and throw it at the engine. When engine two went out, they'd reach deeper in your pockets and throw more money at the first engine. This is the Democrat way.

Perhaps this nightmare will be over during the first week of November 2010.

UN-Fairness Doctrine

Making small, but ever-growing waves within the American political machine is the ideal of the "Fairness Doctrine." Sounds nice on the surface, but what does it really mean?

The "Fairness Doctrine" is a govenment policy that forces the FCC to monitor the airwaves and make sure that broadcast radio gives fair time to both the left and right wing philosophies. Basically, the govenment will ensure that every radio program will give 50-50 time to both sides of the political aisle.

Sounds good...but, as wil every other Democrat-inspired idea, one must look below the surface.

Notice, first, that the Fairness Doctrine does nothing to monitor or police the broadcast airwaves of television, nor the print media. The Fairness Doctrine is going after the only media that has even a chance of carrying a right-wing bias.

Anyone with even the slightest sense of objectivity and reality can tell you the television media (with the exception of the right-of-center Fox News Channel) is very much on the left-wing. The "newspaper of record" The New York Times is as left as the Huffington Post, Al Franken, and Al Gore combined. Yet, NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, and the New York Times would not fall prey to the Fairness Doctrine. Just Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Neil Boortz, Dave Ramsey, Michael Savage, Curtis Sliwa, John Gibson, and the other INDIVIDUAL broadcasters who voice a dissenting opinion from the left. Notice this, also...the Fairness Doctrine would affect only individuals who have worked hard to achieve success in the broadcast media. This doctrine would use their hard work and success to force a different opinion on the air.

This Doctrine mentions nothing about the free market in which Air (or Err) America has utterly failed. Liberals have as much right and freedom to broadcast their message on radio. The problem is, no one wants to listen.

So, now, the Democrats want to impose limits on the conservatism of a show and force liberal opinions to be heard.

Let's look at it from this perspective...

You spend years perfecting a secret sauce for your burgers. You become a world-reknowned burger joint. People come in droves to enjoy your burgers because they love them. Your burger reigns supreme to all others.

Then, the government sees that your burger is drowning out McDonald's, Burger King, and even Red Robin. These three national joints have friends in Washington, DC, in the White House and Congress. Suddenly, there is a "Fairness Doctrine" for burgers. You must now sell your product and allow McDonald's, Burger King, and Red Robin equal time on your grills to sell their products.

Instead of selling your burgers at your joints on your equipment 100% of the time, all of which was built 100% on your hours of work, suddenly, because some beauracrat bought the line from lobbyists, you must give up 50% of everything you've worked for to be "fair."

This, my friends, is the "Fairness Doctrine." Punishing the successful. Taking away from people who have worked hard to give to people who have failed. This is the Democrat way. This is the "Stimulus Package" for the airwaves. Taking from those who work and earn and are successful, and giving to failure after failure after failure.

The "Fairness Doctrine" is nothing short of CENSORSHIP. Silencing voices. Killing the opposition. Clearing the playing field. The "Fairness Doctrine" is Big Brother...and 1984 might be about 25 years late.

The Hypocracy of the Left

The left is so hypocritical, and they do not hide it anymore, it is sad that there are intelligent Americans who still buy the bull.

President George W. Bush suffered an onslaught of personal, professional, and family-related attacks in the days immediately preceding his inauguration. The onslaught still continues today, even as the dream majority of the Democratic party is in charge. The Dems have had the House of Representatives and the Senate since the beginning of 2007. They now have the White House.

What is the first thing they do with their power? Force America to swallow a $780+ BILLION package of pork, earmarks, and waste full and inappropriate spending. This "stimulus" package is full of earmarks such as pool improvements for schools in Connecticut, water slide improvements in Providence, RI, and Frisbee golf courses in California.

There are very few job-creating efforts in this Pork Pet Project Package. There are very few stimulating effects, just ask Obama's own economic whiz kids. This stimulus package is nothing more than re-election spending for 2012, which is the calendar year in which much of this package will actually take effect. So, through manipulation, bending the rules, cutting corners, out-right lying, and over-the-top fear mongering, Obama has just orchestrated the biggest heist of tax-payer money since the Democrats opened the coffers and started spending Social Security monies in the general budgetary funds.

Obama bold-faced lied to America when he said there are no earmarks in this bill. There are billions of dollars in wasteful federal spending. Some projects might be all well and good, however, this bill violated the sanctity of State versus Federal spending. There is now a very blurred, nearly invisible, line between State and Federal jurisdiction in funding, spending, and creating the funds needed for projects. Instead, this package spends billions of federal monies on projects that are strictly under state and local jurisdiction, and not up to the Federal Government to force the states to allow these projects to come into the individual states.

Most of this Pork Pet Project Package won't even take effect for over 24 months from the second it is signed into law. If this is an emergency; if we are in dire times on the brink of permanent, irreversible financial ruin; if we need this adrenaline shot into the economy TODAY; if we need it to effect now...why is this package full of spending projects that won't start for 2, 3, or 4 years?

By the way...isn't it amazing how much the economy tanked and the markets dropped within SECONDS of the announcement of the passing of this bill? If this package was so awesome...why isn't there a hint of a turnaround with the announcement that help is on the way? Why? Because this package will stimulate inflation, egos of the politicians for whom these porky projects will be named.

Chuck Schumer admitted there is pork in the bill. He said that the "chattering class," which I assume he is referring to right-wing bloggers and conservative commentators like Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, are focusing on the "porky amendments," which are the addendums tacked on to the bill by individual Senators and Representatives. These amendments are the true definition of pork, earmarks, and irresponsible spending...the very things that President Obama has repeatedly LIED about not being in the stimulus package.

Obama lied...our economy died....

Republicans are the obstructionists? I think they are saving America.

The next time you reach for another bucket of blame to throw across any Republican in your immediate proximity, please take a moment.

Most everyone in America, including myself, will concede the point that the American and World economies are both in dire straights. Joblessness is climbing at an alarming rate. Businesses and corporations are all burning through cash just to keep the lights on. People are having to leave their homes. It is not a good time in America right now.

Add to that the fear-mongering of Barack Obama and the Democratic Congress, and the constant repetition of the negativity on the 24-hour news cycle, and you have a self-defeating attitude among the people of the planet, thus creating a vicious cycle of fear, dread, and a lack of confidence in the system. Things are bad, but the perception is a majority of our trouble.

So, we need a stimulus package to jump start the economy and provide the opportunity for new jobs, and old jobs to come back. We are in an emergency, so we need a package that takes effect now. Not in 2 years. And certainly not in four years.

We also do not need billions of dollars to go to Connecticut to repair high schools, water slides, and pools. However, that is exactly the type of pork, monetary mismanagement, and wish-list spending that this stimulus package is carrying.

More than half of this bill is scheduled to spend its money in over 2 years from the day it is signed into law. We all hope this recession is not going to last 2 years. This is an emergency bill and not a bill for long-term spending. Yet, that is exactly what we are getting. This is the "do-or-die" package Obama, Pelosi, and Reid are shoving down our throats, threatening anyone who dares question the bill as being unpatriotic, an obstructionist, and uncaring of the struggles of the everyday American.

If the bill is so great, and has so much positive effect, why can't we take a few more days to fine-tune and question it?

Just take a look at this video. It takes about 20 minutes. Yes, he is Republican. If you need to, ignore his party affiliation. Just listen to the items included in this emergency stimulus bill. Listen to the earmarks included in this bill. Just listen and try to reason to yourself how these expenditures will create long-term jobs, long-term recovery, and slow and stop the recession. Ask yourself.

So many of these earmarks are spending packages that are supposed to be under the jurisdiction of the local government. These are not federal funding issues. This is what we mean by bigger government. Federal money means federal rules means Washington, DC, will be in your backyard. Big Brother is watching...

European Socialism Spending Bill of 2009

Are you serious?

We are in a dire financial crisis, and the only answer we can come up with is this $800+ billion package?

This is an 'emergency' stimulus package, but the spending involved is chock-full of spending and pet projects, with little to no truly stimulating effects.

The only stimulation is the fact that the American taxpayer will be getting screwed by this bill for generations. Our grandchildren's butts will be aching if this goes through.

Where is the outrage? Why is the vast majority of Americans grabbing the ankles and smiling while chanting, "Change we can believe in!"?

Obama takes the podium to whine and complain about the massive debt and deficit that he found "wrapped in a giant red bow waiting for me in the Oval Office." Yet, all he does is push and cram down our throats this pork-saturated travesty.

There are billions of dollars in new spending in this bill. There are amendments that call for restabalizing of ATV trails. There is spending to modernize hospitals. There is spending to restore government buildings. There is funding to purchase hybrid vehicles for government fleets. There are whines and cries that Republicans do not want to spend $400 million on STD prevention. HOW IS THAT ECONOMIC STIMULUS???? These are the purchases and expendiatures that Obama is saying are necessary, or else we will go into a permanent, irreversible financial collapse?

They said Bush was a fear monger. But he talked about the need to fight and find and kill terrorists before they killed Americans. He talked about strategy to prevent crisis through logical means. He was not saying we need to spend $600 million on new hybrids or else our economy will be forever destroyed.

If we don't spend $1 trillion on a bunch of Democrats' pet projects, our economy will die. That is the message we are getting from Obama and his stuttering press secretary. (PLEASE NOTE: I have nothing against people who stutter or stammer, I am merely pointing out the fact that the mouthpiece...the very spokesman...for the Obama Administration falls into stammers and stutters and misspeaks the second he gets a direct question).

I hope Americans, especially those blinded-by-the-light, kool-aid drinking, worship at the altar of the lord god Obama Democrats, will take a step back and think. Why is there such a rush and panic to spend this money?

Why is there a rage anytime a piece of this bill is questioned? Why is the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party so infuriated that there is a call for some responsibility with this spending bill?

Sometimes you have to get a feeling like you are buying a used car from the slickest, smoothest-talking used car salesman in the world.

"No, its a beauty, isn't it? Sign it now, and you can look at this thing when you get it home. Go ahead, sign the papers now so you can get it. Otherwise, the other customer might come back and steal it from you. No, you don't need to think about it. No, you don't need to look under the hood. No, you don't need a CarFax. Come on, sign it. If you don't sign it now, you could lose this car, and this car is perfect for you. Come on, sign these papers. No, you know you want the car, no questions asked, right?"

Would you sign the papers for that car?

Then why do you sign on for this crazy, tragic, destructive bill?

This is NOT a stimulus is a welfare spending bill. It is a vote-buying bill full of earmarks and favors. There are so few jobs that this bill will creat. Please, for the sake of our country, do your own research. Find out what is in this bill for yourself.

Then, just remind yourself who has been in power in the governing body that creates budgets and spending since early 2007...and remember this as we approach the mid-terms in 2010. Remember that this is a primarily Democrat-created bill. Only 3 Republicans have signed on to this stimulus package.

Glenn Beck: Unelectable

Okay, this blog is not going to rail against the morons, I mean anyone who is trying to support the new administration, but instead, I am offering some hope.

Real hope.

For years, there was one shining light coming from CNN headquarters via CNN Headline News. That shining light was the one voice of reason that did not fall in line with the liberal idiocy and hypocracy. This shining light is now the 5pm show on Fox News Channel...His name: GLENN BECK.

My life's schedule prevents me from seeing his broadcasts on FNC. I wish I had been more familiar with him while he was at Headline News.

I write about him tonight because of the inspiration he has just provided me. Let me explain.

Recently, due to the irregular schedule of my job as a Family Teacher (NOT HOUSE PARENT! [That's a joke...hopefully fellow FTs appreciate it]), I decided to join Netflix. In my hours of searching Netflix's vast library, the website's suggestion features showed me a DVD created during the travesty of an election season we just had in 2008. The DVD is entitled Glenn Beck: UNELECTABLE.

Beck's passion and sheer, unadulterated, unquestionable love of country inspired me. He loves this country. He loves God. He believes in both.

In today's world, people do not talk with the passion and emotion that Beck presents on the stage in this DVD. People do not express the deep-rooted love of God and country that Beck does in this DVD.

I love Rush, Hannity, Mark Levin, and so many others on our side, but when they talk about their love of country, it doesn't carry the same depth. This is not to say they love America any less, or that Beck is so much better, but I am merely pointing out that I am inspired by this man.

Beck's take on America and politics and politicians is humorous, engaging, and though-provoking. If you have the slightest sliver of pride and love and respect for this country, this DVD will leave you elevated.

I am 27 years old. I am the son of a Vietnam Vet. I have walked the streets of two of the greatest cities God gave man: New York City and, my original and current city, Chicago. I have seen, in just under my 3 decades on earth, Americans lose themselves. I have seen the pride, love, and passion for our country and freedom get eroded and washed away. I have seen my peers never develop a proud, American core within themselves.

Most American parents have failed their children and their country by not nurturing that American pride in the last two generations.

Our media has betrayed and failed out country with their coverage of the last 5 presidencies. From their disrespectful attacks on Ronald Reagan to their unfailing love and support of the criminal Bill Clinton, then their unrelenting attacks and insults and disrespect to George W. Bush to their praise, support, and adoration of Barack Obama, they have consistently taught Americans all the wrong things about how to be a country of strength, independence, intelligence, and pride. The media has helped destroy our American Pride.

Our public schools, whose policies and curriculum are primarily devised by Democratic-minded, liberal-leaning beauracrats and not people within the education system, and certainly not by conservatives who have pride in America. Our kids are bieng indoctrinated to ignore their country's greatness and only focus on her imagined faults, meanwhile praising and envying the cultures of other nations while completely ignoring the human rights violations, violence, and lack-of-freedoms those cultures have. (Imagine walking around in China and carrying a poster that spoke ill of the current regime in many bullets would pierce your body before you hit the ground?)

I encourage all Americans to listen to Glenn's speech in this DVD. I hope that you will consider trying to instill a higher sense of pride, love, and adoration for America in those people around you.

Have you read the entire US Constitution?
Have you read the entire Declaration of Independence?

Our biggest problem in this tough economic time is that we have lost a sense of what makes America America. We no longer look at the stars and stripes with a prideful heart and an inner peace. We no longer remember on a daily basis that thousands upon thousands of men, women, and children have fought and died to give us the rights we abuse and take for granted.

We abuse our rights. We are "endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." We are not guarenteed happiness. We do not have a RIGHT to tax-payer-funded housing, health care, or anything else. We have the right to live, to live free, and to spend that free life pursuing happiness...we do not have the right to get there. We have the right to attempt to get there. But, we forget that. We tend to stick out our hand and expect people to give us what most people used to work for.

Watch the DVD. Start reinforcing your love of America. If we all step back, look around, take a deep breath, and fall in love with our country all over again...if we do that...if we give up a piece of ourselves and love America...I truly believe that we can figure out how to get our country going forward again. I believe we can be successful and leave this country in better shape than when we found it.

Attention Parents: Positive Role Model for Little Girls!!! A True Find!!!

For most of my commentary career, I will periodically rail against someone like Britney "Mother of the Year" Spears, Linsey HO-han...I mean, Lohan, Jessica "Undercarriage" Simpson, or the other bevy of female celebrities who flaunt their 'goodies' with no remorse.

I have attacked morons like Lindsey Lohan for weighing 25 pounds and announcing she is trying to lose a few more pounds. I have questioned the popularity of people like Spears and Simpson and Christina Aguilara...and why so many parents look the other way.

I have verbally fought Eminem, 50 Cent, Kanye, and all these other cRappers for their disgusting lyrics and even worse videos that devalue women, meanwhile teaching all kids that women are only worth how often they share themselves with others, men and or women.

In addition, I have supported positive role models...sadly they are few and far between. I have also stood up for people who are attacked unfairly. A couple years ago, Jennifer Love Hewitt was attacked for being fat when she clearly was not even close to being fat. I think the attacks on Britney's appearance at the MTV VMAs two years ago was unfair and gave even more negative messages to little girls everywhere.

So, out of nowhere, I see this news story. It is about Emma Watson, one of the stars of the Harry Potter series of movies. She recently turned 18, and the sicko paparazzi was right there, and as she admitted, there were members taking full advantage of her now-legal status and trying to snap revealing pictures, including paparazzi lying on their backs attempting an up-skirt shot.

Emma Watson does not want to be classified as "sexy." She refuses to don the revealing low-cut tops and high-cut skirts. She dresses conservative, values education, and wants to continue to work and better herself, even though she could live off the fortune the Harry Potter series made possible.

This blog is not to say she is perfect...I am not Chris Matthews and she is not tingly feelings here...I am merely pointing out that it is cool and it is good to have morals, decency, and modesty.

This is ridiculous...will we make it to 2012?

The Obama Administration is off and running!

Running us into the ground, that its.

Obama is closing GitMo, hiring tax cheats, and trying to force working Americans into buying a $1 trillion...that is $1,000,000,000,000 or $1 million times $1 million or enough for every man, woman, and child to each receive a check for about $3000...spending package that does little for real job creation and little to encourage growth.

This 'stimulus' bill is nothing more than a big group of favors and paybacks for the last two national elections in 2006 and 2008. There is more pork in this one bill than you can imagine. Which is why Obama and the democrats are in such a hurry to pass it...the longer it sits, the more we learn.

Obama promised transparency, ethics, and change once he got into office. Obama was "the one." He was the man chosen from high above to come down and make America a better place. He was going to move America onto a better path.

The only thing that I can give credit for is the fact that those campaign lies were the only transparencies we are getting for the next four years.

There is not code of ethics in this administration. Ever since we learned about Bill Ayers, Reverend Wright, Tony Rezko and the like, we have seen Obama surrounded by nothing but crooks, liars, and thieves. It seems everyone he works with is somehow a law-breaker and has some questionable morals, ethics, and decency. Bill Richardson had donor issues. Hillary Clinton is still stained with Whitewater, the Vernon Jordan murder, and the Marc Rich pardon, not to mention the "souvenirs" her and Bill bilked the American taxpayer out of in January of 2001. Tim Geithner is a tax cheat who will now run the IRS. Tom Daschle, the latest snafu, is also a tax cheat who will end up running the Commerce department.

I am sure any day now Michael Jackson will be appointed as the head of a new, national pre-school program. Followed by Britney Spears to be in charge of parenting. Perhaps Rod Blagojevic should be the new head of the FBI?

It is going to be a long 4 years. I sincerely hope that people start to realize the REAL problem.

We all started to see this economic crisis coming in mid-2007...just after the mid-term elections gave Democrats the House and Senate. Since the Dems have had the power, they have done nothing but preside over the largest jumps in energy costs in history, as well as the largest economic collapse since The Great Depression.

I guess this is the change we have been waiting for...

About Me...And This Blog Site...

My name is David A. Ebert, the oldest of two siblings produced by my parents, Leah and David G. Ebert. We are all Republicans, but I take it a toke or two...well, closer to 10 tokes...further than my parents,

I am very much a Right Wing Conservative. I am a Reagan Conservative. I believe Americans, in general, are smarter than elected officials in Washington, DC. We should be more in charge than the Government.

We, as individuals and families, should have more responsibility over our own, hard-earned money and not send more and more and more taxes to the out-of-touch politicians. I believe the government is there to serve us, and not us to serve them.

I believe in America's greatness and that, overall, we are the most generous, forgiving, intelligent, and genuinely decent country in the world. I also believe that we are the most powerful nation in the history of the world, but do not use that power to hold over the collective heads of other nations.

I believe that low taxes, intelligent spending of those tax revenues, strong initiatives on defense and education, and small government influence on the day-to-day lives of Americans are some of the most important ideals related to how the US should be operated.I believe in the freedoms granted by the US Constitution. I believe that judges should uphold and interpret the laws as written in the US Constitution, and not refer to any foreign legislation to make their historic decisions.

I believe the First Amendment, as well as the entire Bill of Rights, are the most important laws this world has ever seen.

I believe abortion is WRONG. I believe that homosexuality is WRONG. I believe that allowing anyone to publicly debate the possibility of lowering the age of consent, especially for young boys to consent to older men, is a tragedy of morality. I believe that organizations like NAMBLA should be publicly shunned and not given a platform to spew their harmful and dangerous rhetoric.

I believe there is a sad lacking in the ability of our nation to appreciate and accept self responsibility. We, as a nation, blame daddy, racism, sexism, classism, mommy, the mean teacher, the mean little league coach, the loud mouthed uncle, the financial status of the neighborhood in which we grew up in, and a million and one other reasons why we do not succeed. How often do we, as a nation, take the blame for our own mistakes? How often do you hear someone accept responsibility for their own mistakes? How often?

I am conservative. I am worried about the future of the country and the planet, especially if O-BOMB-A or Billary Clinton make it to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I will start posting my fears, my hopes, my ideas as they all relate to news and politics. I hope to open some eyes and change some opinions with my writings. Most of all, I hope you will read my words and be inspired to find the truth...and not rely on Chris Matthews or Keith Olberman or Katie Couric or Matt Lauer for your opinions. I hope you will break the mold and do something something that O-BOMB-A and Billary are afraid of you doing...
