Hodge Podge Friday 30 April 2010

Hello all, its Friday and I’ve been tardy in my posting, so that must mean its time for another Hodge Podge Friday 🙂   A chance to sit back, relax and allow me to vent my frustrations 🙂

Lori Ziganto at Red State has a post ‘Your Pay Is Not Above Obama’s Paygrade’.   Apparently President Obama decided to give his teleprompter a break and of course that is when the Socialist comes out.  He states ‘I do think at a certain point, you’ve made enough money’.

Okay Mr. President, you made 5 million last year?  Are you going to stop taking a salary now?  What about all the millionaire wall street people you have on the government payroll, have they made enough yet?

More to point, what about the Socialist Billionaire George Soros?  The man who bankrolled your presidency and the Democrat takeover of the government.  He has made billions during this recession, but still you gave him two billion of the Stimulus money as payback for the election, then offered OneWest Bank, which he co-owns with another Socialist Billionaire, a different set of rules which allowed them to make billions more by foreclosing mortgages, kicking people out on the street, dumping the homes, then being reimbursed courtesy of the U. S. Taxpayer.  At the same time you were chastising all the other banks for not doing more to keep people in their homes.

So I guess your limit on what an individual should be allowed to make does not apply to Socialist Elitist like yourself and the billionaire owners of the Democrat Party.   Hypocrite 🙂

Ms Star Parker is running unopposed in the Primary in California’s 37th congressional district, which encompasses Long Beach, Compton, Carson, and Signal Hill. This district is currently represented by Democrat Laura Richardson who is running in a tight primary election on June 8th.  If you live in California please visit Ms Parker’s web page and more importantly, please vote for her.  Our country seriously needs this type of leadership 🙂

Speaking of strong leaders, LTC Allen West tells it like is about Islam at the Freedom Defense Initiative.  The best speech I have ever heard on the issue of terrorism and radical Islam.  This video runs 19 mins, but trust me, it is well worth your time.  Ms Pamela Geller does a one and a half-minute intro if you would like to skip ahead.

LTC West is a strong and dynamic leader that is also running for congress.  He will make a great representative, senator and one day candidate for the White House 🙂

Well, I did not set out to make this all about the future election, but considering our present congress would we be better off with Peter Griffin?

Okay, I double tapped, but only for your amusement 🙂

According to the latest Rasmussen poll Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is up 16 points after signing the new immigration law.   She was at 40% approval rating in the state and now she sits with at 56% approval rating.  Regardless of what others may be saying, 70% of the people in Arizona support the new law, while out of touch obliviots in San Francisco want to boycott Arizona products including Arizona Tea which is actually manufactured in New York.   Way to go lefties.  Not too smart, but then you never were.

Mr. Dick Morris says the financial bill the Democrats are pushing in congress is a disaster in three major respects.  

1. It gives incentives for irresponsibility by, in effect, guaranteeing banks’ survival by establishing a $50 billion rescue fund. In doing so, it gives the large banks a huge advantage and extends to them the same kind of implicit guarantee that once encouraged the likes of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae to go on their lending spree. It is a key step in the conversion of big banks into quasi-public institutions, ultimately controlled by the government, levers through which the public sector can control the private.

2. By vesting the secretary of the Treasury with the power to seize — in a hostile takeover — any financial institution he deems too big to fail, it puts at risk of public takeover every such company in the nation. Granted, the FDIC now has the power to seize any bank. But the FDIC is headed by a nonpartisan board with a heritage of nonpolitical regulation. The secretary of the Treasury is an arm of the president. If a political appointee has the power to take over any financial institution — bank or non-bank — fire the board, replace the management, wipe out stock equity and sell off pieces of the company, it gives him a power that is so awesome it can undermine our democratic freedoms. What corporate executive will feel free to donate to Obama’s opponents or to speak out against the administration when doing so could cost him his job and his bank?

3. The newly established Consumer Financial Protection Agency will have the power to approve or reject any loan instrument offered by any company in the land. A mattress company that wants to let customers go 60 days before paying will have to get CFPA approval before extending credit. The bureaucratic bottleneck will slow economic activity, encourage corruption and retard consumer spending. It will be big government at its worst.

Financial reform that does not rein in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will only multiply the problems that caused the economy to crash in first place.  Democrats are pulling a fast one and hoping the rest of us are not paying attention.  Contact your elected officials and give them an earful.  It may not do any good, but it will lower your blood pressure.  Tell them you are a Tea Party member and raise theirs 🙂

Well, I would like to discuss the oil spill in the Gulf, but I have that ethics thing to deal with.  Unlike elected officials and Democrat Party Socialist, I could be punished.  So I guess I will stay away from that issue.  

Needless to say the Democrats will attempt to use this accident for political gain and new regulations that make us even more dependent on others for our energy supplies.  I would like to point out one simple fact that no one else has.  It was a foreign oil rig.  It does not belong to the U. S.  It was contracted to save money.  I will post more on this once the heat dies down.

Well, that is all I have time for Today friends and neighbors.  Life is keeping me fully engaged with issues at work, but that will not stop me from posting a few of those funny, or odd, videos I found while trucking down the information highway 🙂 

Okay, the first video is called dumb people doing stupid things.  Is that an oxymoron, or just a video of morons.  You be the judge 🙂

Well, I especially liked the lady trying to do the Flintstone stop on the icy road.  Yep, there is a future Senator 🙂 

This next one is called Idiots of the World.  At first I thought it was about our congress, but it must have been San Francisco Socialist at play.  Who else has the time.  The rest of us have to work to pay these moron’s medical bills.

Can you believe they want us to pay for these people’s health care?  We seriously need to consider chlorinating the gene pool 🙂

Okay, this is probably a fake prank, but it is funny 🙂

Now, tell the truth.  Haven’t there been days you wanted to do that to your boss.  Okay, spouse, co-worker, significant other, just fill in the blank  and smile 🙂

And last, but never least, I will leave you with one of those funny candid camera videos.  It starts out a bit slow, but picks up at the end.  Kind of like me.  Take care and have a great day 🙂
