Friday’s Bits and Pieces
Nightmare on Sequester Street… how to beat down the American people and make them feel defeated to achieve a political win. Destroying confidence in the people, filling them with despair, terrifying the sick and elderly, dumbing down of America to win political points, what an ignorant way of governing.
It is always cliffs, ceilings and looming catastrophes with Barack Obama. It is always government by freakout.
That’s what’s happening now with the daily sequester warnings. Seven hundred thousand children will be dropped from Head Start. Six hundred thousand women and children will be dropped from aid programs. Meat won’t be inspected. Seven thousand TSA workers will be laid off, customs workers too, and air traffic controllers. Lines at airports will be impossible. The Navy will slow down the building of an aircraft carrier. Troop readiness will be disrupted, weapons programs slowed or stalled, civilian contractors stiffed, uniformed first responders cut back. Our nuclear deterrent will be indefinitely suspended. Ha, made that one up, but give them time.
Mr. Obama has finally hit on his own version of national unity: Everyone get scared together. …
[G]overnment by freakout carries a price. It wears people down. It doesn’t inject a sense of energy, purpose or confidence in those who do business in America, it does the opposite.
Getting sucked in to the defeatist attitude, throwing up one’s hands and giving up is exactly what they want you to do.
Rush Limbaugh has it exactly right, we all should be ashamed of what our governing body is doing to our country.
To be watching all of this ‘sequesteria,’ to be treated like this, to have our common sense and intelligence insulted the way it’s being insulted? It just makes me ashamed….[snip]
We’re creating more and more dependents. We’re robbing people of their dignity and humanity and of their opportunity to realize their dreams as they turn their lives over to the government. It’s like a never-ending cycle. The government makes the private sector smaller. There are fewer job opportunities.
Obama can’t help himself, he believes the bigger the government the better. But, government under Obama has become a destructive force stealing our future, stealing from our children, robbing us of our way of life which is built on the premise of success by achievement.
After spending this week in tax hell paying our “fair share”, having one of our cars stolen by one of those helpless people who BO wants to redistribute the wealth to, I choose to keep exposing the Liar-in-Chief for exactly what he is, not worthy of the office he holds. Governing by manufactured crisis is destructive to the American psyche.
Government is the problem and never, not ever, the answer.
Too funny…’I chase him, I bite him’… the crime report written by a DOG: Officer investigated after submitting witness statement in character as animal. Higher ups wanted a written witness statement from the “other officer” on the scene.
High school teacher ‘refused to mark students’ assignments because they mentioned guns’. Is everyone losing their sense of reason?
T-shirts with a dose of reality…Don’t worry, they won’t bite! Crazy 3D T-shirt craze starring dogs, cats and even raccoons look scarily real
Can’t make this stuff up….The press pool complains about access, so Obama holds an “off-the-record” meeting with them to discuss their complaint …. and, of course, they can’t report on it.
I]n mid-September 2010 the Departments of Labor and Treasury held hearings on the next step toward achieving Ghilarducci’s goals. The stated purpose was to require all private plans to offer retirees an option to elect an annuity. The “behind-the-scenes” purpose for this step was to get people used to the idea that the retirement assets they had accumulated would no longer be part of their estate when they died.
So the Government would get the money, not the estate or family of the people who saved the money during a lifetime of work. That’s a one hundred percent death tax on savings. Worse, the most responsible and poorest families will be penalized.
Thought for the day…… But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty
