The U.S. Constitution (The Rule Book)

Response to Anonymous
I wanted no bail outs from the start. If congress was not to blame for all this mess, there would be hearings and criminal trials and people in jail. The fact is congress is never held accountable and now they expect me to be concerned about the policies of private companies. The democratic congress will now point fingers at the companies they had to bail out due to their involvement and policies to begin with. I do not have the energy to listen to news or talk about CEOs getting paid too much or how they run their businesses, if they would have just failed to begin with, it would have been the end of the discussion. It is not a bail out, it is a take over. Just replace the word what ever it may be, rescue, bail out, with the words government take over and it all spells nationalism (to transfer a business, property, or industry from private to governmental control or ownership). Our federal government bankrupts everything they run, even the Capitol cafeteria. The reason our military is successful is due to the good honorable people who make it up, and it will be the first and possibly the only department to face cuts. The goal of this administration is not to improve the economy but to run it. Health care is 1/7 th of the economy. Nancy Pelosi (Dem. Congress House Leader), Harry Reid (Dem. Senate Majority Leader) and yes even Barack Obama are more concerned about the power it brings to the Democratic Party than your health. When capitalism is driven out of any industry quality will go down, wages will go down, the standard of living will go down and costs will go up. The oil industry could be next. Maybe the democrats won't let us drill, until they control it 100%. The first amendment (freedom of speech) is also under attack through the Fairness Doctrine (Controlling content on the public airwaves). The Census will now be overseen by the white house and not the Commerce Department. The Nationalization of housing and banking started with Freddie and Fanny, you know all about them don't ya. Those who believe in the Constitution and the Heritage of this country would like all people to live by The U.S. Constitution (The Rule Book), not a donkey or an elephant. HWR

Laughter is good medicine make sure you find a way to get some.

Anonymous is a good friend of mine.

I'm sure you already know this, but the evidence continues to mount that Government under President Obama continues to expand its role in taking care of all Americans. I love President Bush for his courage in fighting terrorism and keeping us safe, but every day I am more disappointed with his role in opening the door for this march to socialism.

I remembered hearing back in December that Fannie/Freddie would not move forward with any foreclosure/evictions because of the holidays. The extension to Jan 31 has now been extended to the end of February. Every month they avoid dealing with the foreclosure issue is another month for the amount of bad debt to grow larger and larger.

Perhaps they are seeking a way to never deal with the problem. More and more mortgages going unpaid and no evictions. Oh, I see -- we are providing free housing to those in need!!

Now that the Government has seized Fannie/Freddie (last year) there is no longer a responsibility for them to conduct business profitably. They are now a valuable tool for Mr. Geitner.

I have always been a very optimistic person, yet every day I feel like I run out of time for researching to try to be informed about the multitude of issues that cause me great concern. The thought "perfect storm" haunts me.

Save your money - don't spend on anything you don't have to. We are all in for a long hard road.

Thanks for letting me vent!!

What Is In The Bill? Who Cares?

They found universal health care in the bill, another step towards socialism. Read this from Bloomberg.

Ruin Your Health With the Obama Stimulus Plan: Betsy McCaughey

This Bill WILL effect all of us forever. The closer this Bill gets to Obama's desk the more my gut tells me we are headed for a cliff with the gas pedal to the floor.

I forgot, Obama won he can do whatever he wants.

I knew when Obama won the election government would become the solution to all of our problems, I just didn't think he would try to solve all our problems so quickly.

Our country is not suffering from too little government.

No matter what the president wants, it is We The People (Congress) that is responsible for spending and passing laws.

Somebody leave me a comment who thinks health care run by the Government is a good Idea. HWR

Rahm Emanuel

Obama's Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel

Never let a serious crisis go to waste

A short must read - The U. S. Financial Crisis. A well planned fiasco.


On Wednesday, the Congressional Budget Office issued a rather pessimistic view of the stimulus bill in front of the Senate, and virtually no major media outlets reported it.
Not the New York Times. Not the Washington Post. Not USA Today. Not ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, or MSNBC.
What were they hiding from the public? This (emphasis added):

Catastrophe, mind you. So much for the president who in his inaugural address two weeks earlier declared "we have chosen hope over fear." Until, that is, you need fear to pass a bill.

First U.S. President February 4, 1789

George Washington, the commander of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, is unanimously elected the first president of the United States by all 69 presidential electors who cast their votes. John Adams of Massachusetts, who received 34 votes, was elected vice president. The electors, who represented 10 of the 11 states that had ratified the U.S. Constitution, were chosen by popular vote, legislative appointment, or a combination of both four weeks before the election.

That the remaining 69 unanimously chose Washington to lead the new U.S. government was a surprise to no one. As commander-in-chief during the Revolutionary War, he had led his inexperienced and poorly equipped army of civilian soldiers to victory over one of the world's great powers. After the British surrender at Yorktown in 1781, Washington rejected with abhorrence a suggestion by one of his officers that he use his preeminence to assume a military dictatorship. He would not subvert the very principles for which so many Americans had fought and died, he replied, and soon after, he surrendered his military commission to the Continental Congress.

In 1797, he finally began his long-awaited retirement at Mount Vernon. He died on December 14, 1799. His friend Henry Lee provided a famous eulogy for the father of the United States: "First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen."

My Comments:
George Washington was a great man that became a good president. George Washington was a great leader because of his actions and not just his words.
