Arizona Governor has it right!

Consider this Argument:

Arizona governor vs. Phoenix Suns owner - I'd say she makes a
pretty good case with her analogy!!

The owner of the Phoenix Suns basketball team, Robert Sarver,
came out strongly opposing AZ's new immigration laws.

Arizona 's Governor, Jan Brewer, released the following statement
in response to Sarver's criticism of the new law:

"What if the owners of the Suns discovered that hordes of people
were sneaking into games without paying? What if they had a
good idea who the gate-crashers are, but the ushers and
security personnel were not allowed to ask these folks to
produce their ticket stubs, thus non-paying attendees couldn't
be ejected?

"Furthermore, what if Suns' ownership was expected to provide
those who sneaked in with complimentary eats and drink? And
what if, on those days when a gate-crasher became ill or injured,
the Suns had to provide free medical care and shelter?"

Obama is still suffering from the Speech Illusion, the idea that he can come down from the mountain, read from a Teleprompter, cast a magic spell with his words and climb back up the mountain, while we scurry around and do what he proclaimed.

A thinking mans journalist!


-By Charlie Reese

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don't propose a federal budget. The President does.
You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.
You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.
You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.

Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.
The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House now? He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.
If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red.
If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it's because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ...
If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.
There are no insoluble government problems.

Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like "the economy," "inflation," or "politics" that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.
They, and they alone, have the power.
They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses. Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees...

We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!
What you do with this article now that you have read it... is up to you.
This might be funny if it weren't so true.
Be sure to read all the way to the end:

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table,
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for
peanuts anyway!

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid...

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
'Taxes drove me
to my doom...'

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?
Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was the most prosperous in the world.
We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom, if agreed, stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the heck happened? Can you spell 'politicians?'

I hope this goes around THE USA at least 545 times!!! YOU can help it get there!!!

The Left Comments on Weiner! Firedoglake musings.


June 12th, 2011 at 5:17 pm «
THANK YOU!!!!

I love you . *smooch*

Thank you, too, I will contact his office.

Recc’d. I’ve been saying it for a while; all this is not possible without media compliance/exacerbation.

I’m sick of high-pruderism.

Hi back C-S; Heh. It is as far as I’m concerned. Replaces “High Broder-ism.”

I’m sick of prudes. I exult. I’m an exulter. Not a shame-based person. And I’m sick of the shame-demanders. They can piss off.


“I do not understand this Democratic Party drumbeat for Anthony Weiner to resign. The man is in treatment for this illness, or compulsion, or whatever it is. Can’t his fellow Democrats at least respect that?”

This has been my take from the start also, at least the part that the man needs to get with a doctor and get some help with this.

The drumbeat people calling for resignation over what they think his issue may be adds to the circus atmosphere that they claim to dislike so much.

I don’t know the guy, but I will say this: He will find out who his friends are and who his friends are not…and he may be very surprised at what he finds out.

I don’t know , I’m on the fence with this one.

At first I was 100% for Anthony–a man whose legislation I’ve agreed with about 95% of the time.

But good grief! more and more photos of him are emerging on the Internet.

It is sad but he looks like an immature fool, a buffoon.

I cringe to think what else is yet to be unearthed.

I guess the fair thing is to wait until we see the worst of the worst.

And what will that be?
I don’t know.
I guess the fair thing is to wait it all out and see if he has indeed broken the law.

ETHICs? Honest to goodness! The US House dispensed with ethics with the 109th Congress “The Worst Congress Ever” as they were so named by Matt Taibbi.

The thing is, nothing — nothing — that has been “unearthed” is actually illegal. At all. (They tried to make something of some innocent Tweets exchanged between him and a teen a few months ago, but the teen’s mother and the cops both saw the exchange and cleared it. In fact, the mother is sickened at how the press is hounding him.)

There is also evidence that Darrell the Car Thief Issa or at least his staffers may be behind this:

N then, contrary to all other comments it seems, I’m gonna bet he’s been sordid, unfaithful n cheatin all along.

Men of power abuse their status for sexual gratification, it’s been proven, it’s a pattern thru out history, it’s a well documented trend.

I don’t care if it’s illegal or not, like Ahnald The Gropenator (bless Maria for dumping his ass finally after so many years of bullshit on his part) it’s disgusting and if an elected offal will abuse that privilege sexually then they will abuse their power in other ways.

We’ll see just how messed up this dude is soon . . . I’ll bet he’s a mess . . . diapers or not.

I don’t get the support for him, he’s a proven lech, (underage twits, I mean, why is he twitting sexual stuff in the FIRST place? He’s married!).

And I reject the ‘prude’ labeling of those who hold Weiner to be a lech, that’s just a complete bunch of jive.

Are there political enemies who want to take him down? Protect their own selfs politically (dems)?

Sure!

But ya can’t lump them all into one catagory.

MY bag is, he’s a proven lech and unfit to lead.

But the bottom line will and should be, what do his constituents think. They elected his lech ass, they should be the one’s talking about it all n making decisions n writing letters n making phone calls.

Harumph.

Medicare Unveiled Will Hurt Your Pocketbook!

MEDICARE PREMIUM INCREASE For those of you who are on Medicare, read the article below. It is
about the monthly amount of money you are going to pay in Medicare
premiums in 2011, 2012 and the huge increase you will pay in 2013. It's
a short but important article:
Congress will not allow an increase in the social security COLA (cost
of living adjustment); however, the per person monthly Medicare
insurance premium will be increased from the 2009 premium of $96.40 to
$104.20 in 2012, $120.20 for the year 2013 AND increases to a wonderful
$247.00 in 2014. Thank You Obamacare!
Congress also gave themselves a $3,000 a month Cost of Living
Adjustment!

"Another Find Mess You've Gotten Us Into!


Trading this weeks has been low with Passover and Easter Week and many people away on Spring Break. The stock market has been down as our US debt has been downgraded to negative as the government has not solved the budget issues. These issues will cause the interest rates to rise in the future.

Conforming 30 Year Fixed (up to $417,000) are at 4.75% and High Balance ($417,000 to $729,750) are at 4.875% and Jumbo (over $729,750) are at 5.625%. FHA is at 4.5% up to $729,750.

Democrats Civility?


Democrat urges unions to 'get a little bloody when necessary'
By Michael O'Brien - 02/23/11 07:57 AM ET

Sometimes it's necessary to get out on the streets and "get a little bloody," a Massachusetts Democrat said Tuesday in reference to labor battles in Wisconsin.

Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Mass.) fired up a group of union members in Boston with a speech urging them to work down in the trenches to fend off limits to workers' rights like those proposed in Wisconsin.

"I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going," Capuano said, according to the Dorchester Reporter. "Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary."

Political observers have been the lookout for potentially incendiary rhetoric in the wake of January's shooting in Tucson, Ariz., where Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D) survived an assassination attempt, six were killed, and 13 others were injured.

Political rhetoric has become especially heated in Madison, Wis., where Republican Gov. Scott Walker has proposed major labor reforms that sparked more than a week's worth of rowdy protests at the state capitol.

"We take security seriously, whether it's for me, the lieutenant governor and all 132 members of the state legislature, Democrats or Republicans alike, because there's a lot of passion down here," Walker said Tuesday on MSNBC about his safety in Wisconsin. "And particularly when we see people coming in being bussed in from other states, that's what worries us."

Capuano made his remarks before a crowd of union members in Boston, along with other members of the state's congressional delegation. Massachusetts has an influential union population that could loom large over the 2012 Senate race. Capuano is considering getting in that race to challenge Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) next fall.

“This is going to be a struggle at least for the next two years. Let’s be serious about this. They’re not going to back down and we’re not going to back down. This is a struggle for the hearts and minds of America,” Capuano told union members.
