Obama and Milli-Vanilli... same ethics!

As I witnessed Obama signing the Porkulus Bill into law yesterday I noticed something about his nose... it's growing! I thought I noticed this when he signed the Lily Ledbetter Act then again when he signed the SCHIP Bill... but he's the Messiah... and he's here to save us... right? The Messiah promised transparency in government under his administration... ya, right.. and I have 6 pack abs! First... let's review Obama's statements and positions so there is no question left to debate at the end of this.

From the Obama 'Ethics' page at

Sunlight Before Signing: Too often bills are rushed through Congress and to the president before the public has the opportunity to review them. As president, Obama will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days.

Shine Light on Earmarks and Pork Barrel Spending: Obama's Transparency and Integrity in Earmarks Act will shed light on all earmarks by disclosing the name of the legislator who asked for each earmark, along with a written justification, 72 hours before they can be approved by the full Senate.

Google for Government: Americans have the right to know how their tax dollars are spent, but that information has been hidden from public view for too long. That's why Barack Obama and Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) passed a law to create a Google-like search engine to allow regular people to approximately track federal grants, contracts, earmarks, and loans online. The Chicago Sun-Times wrote, "It would enable the public to see where federal money goes and how it is spent. It's a brilliant idea."

Now just a few of his platitudes from his 2 year long campaign:

"A democracy requires accountability, and accountability requires transparency."

"For a long time now, there's been too much secrecy in this city," (Washington D.C.)

"We will publish all non-emergency legislation to the website for five days, and allow the public to review and comment before the President signs it."

"to find new ways of tapping the knowledge and experience of ordinary Americans, scientists and civic leaders, educators and entrepreneurs" to solve problems.

"stands on the side not of those who seek to withhold information, but those who seek to make it known."

"The way to make government responsible is to hold it accountable. And the way to make government accountable is make it transparent so that the American people can know exactly what decisions are being made, how they're being made, and whether their interests are being well-served."

So now it gets politically incorrect! In case you didn't realize... I pride myself on being politically incorrect... not abusive... just politically incorrect!

Calling someone a "liar" in some circles is not considered politically correct... so I'm calling Mr. Obama... a liar! He is a Liar... yes, a LIAR! Our President is a LIAR! His nose is growing and his pants are on fire! Liar is a word politicians never use... so I will... OBAMA is a LIAR!

To prove my position... Did Obama publish the Porkulus Bill so the American public could review and comment on it for at least 5 days before signing it? ... hell no! He LIED! The largest expenditure in human history was pushed through the House and Senate at the speed of light... hell... Congress didn't even read it!

So did he... shed light on all earmarks by disclosing the name of the legislator who asked for each earmark, along with a written justification, 72 hours before they can be approved by the full Senate? ... hell no! He LIED... again! Haven't seen a list and it certainly didn't get published so Americans could review it. LIE!

So did he live-up to his position that... the way to make government accountable is make it transparent so that the American people can know exactly what decisions are being made, how they're being made, and whether their interests are being well-served? ... hell no! Just another LIE!

So did he... tap the knowledge of ordinary Americans -- scientists, educators, entrepreneurs -- to find ways to solve the problems of our times as one nation by involving the American people in shaping the policies that affect their lives... hell no! The liberal wackos wouldn't even let the other party into the conference committee room so he signed a Bill with virtually NO input from the other side, let alone from the public! LIED again to the American people!

So did he comply with his own stated policy when signing the SCHIP or the Lily Ledbetter Act into law?... hell no! I rest my case! If you voted for this guy... you voted for a LIAR! He is either a LIAR... or... he's a... LIAR!

All you Obama supporters and defenders have no excuses... you cannot wiggle out of this one! You have to concede... Obama LIED to you! None of these bills could be considered 'emergency legislation"... certainly not the SCHIP Bill ... nothing in it could have been considered an emergency. Same with the Lily Ledbetter Act... it was just a payoff to trial lawyers but certainly not an emergency! Was the Porkulus Bill an "emergency"... well, if it was then Obama was grossly negligent and irresponsible to take his wife out to a fancy restaurant on a vacation in Chicago while the rest of us suffer the consequences of his inaction.

Not one of these Bills could be considered 'emergency legislation'... all you Obama supporters have to admit... he is a LIAR! Please... don't bring up Bush at this point... he's irrelevant now and you can't misdirect our attention away from the fact that your guy... is a LIAR!

Just makes me smile... because I told you so!

Viva la Revolution!

I’ve witnessed some really stupid things take place during my life… but voting on this stimulus package (spending spree) without even reading it…. takes the cake. Just think about this. The largest fiscal expenditure in human history was approved by the idiots we sent to Washington DC… without even reading it! How insulting! What the hell is going on here?

Representatives and Senators… I ask… How contemptuous can you be? How insulting! You basically just told your constituents to go fuc# themselves! You promised to publish this bill so the people (who pay for this) could at least review it before you voted on it… you lied. You promised it would be a bipartisan effort, yet you locked the other party out of the room and refused to even listen to their suggestions… some bipartisan effort that was… you lied again!

Congress had to rush this abomination through the process because the sky was falling and it needed to get passed immediately… yet the President took the weekend off and delayed the signing of this bill for a more prudent photo and political opportunity! Another lie!

Ladies & Gentlemen of the Congress… if you voted for this Stimulus Bill you should be tarred and feathered by your constitutes and run out of town. You are lying scum and are abusing the privilege of representing the American citizen.

If you voted against this Bill you are a patriot and I thank you!

Viva la Revolution!

The Bureau of Public Debt....

So the Congressman walks into the Bureau of Public Debt and is greeted by the government employee. (Yes... there really is a Bureau of Public Debt. I didn't believe it either... but go to and see for yourself)

Hello, I'm 3rd District Congressman Soandso and I would like to know just a little more about what you people do here?
Certainly... It's really great to have you here, we don't get many Representatives or Senators over here.
Really? Why is that and just how often DO you get visitors from Congress over here? asks the Congressman.
Well, I've been here for 22 years and you' re the first... responds the employee!

The Congressman asks... Just exactly what does your Bureau do?
Our job is to borrow the money needed to operate the federal government and to account for the resulting debt. In a nutshell, we borrow by selling Treasury bills, notes, and bonds, as well as U.S. Savings Bonds; we pay interest to investors; and, when the time comes to pay back the loans, we redeem investors' securities. Every time we borrow or pay back money, it affects the outstanding debt of the United States. Essentially, we sell the debt that is created buy Congress when it spends more than it takes in! We are the agency that finds customers to buy our debt. One of our primary responsibilities is to account for the U.S. public debt. We update this number daily at

I'm sure you've looked at the new stimulus package and our outstanding debt... so just how much public debt in Bonds, Bills and Notes will you need to sell to cover our debt?
The employees eyes and head drop slightly and he whispers... 150 Billion dollars a week!

I'm sorry... I didn't hear you... speak up!
The employee raises his head, puffs out his chest, looks the Congressman directly in the eyes and clearly states... 150 Billion dollars a week! When the new stimulus package passes and we add that to the present outstanding government debt we will need to sell 150 billion dollars of debt each and every week! Most debt is short term debt and rolls over rather quickly so the sum will be basically 150 billion dollars a week.

The stunned Congressman... ask... How much? What did you say? Did you say.... a150 Billion dollars a week?
Yes... responds the employee. 150 Billion dollars a week! The debt is basically traded on a weekly basis. Our customers are foreign governments like China, OPEC and Arab States, oil Sheiks, some customers are friendly... some are not! Just recently China has indicated they are limiting what they are going to buy in the future and some European countries are talking about a new monetary standard. It's getting harder and harder to sell that much debt every week!

The Congressman asks... What happens if we can't sell 150 billion dollars of our debt each and every week of the year?
OH!... that won't be a good thing... responds the employee. In fact that just recently happened in Germany. They decided to sell a fairly small sum of debt and the auction collapsed... they couldn't sell the debt... not a good situation! NO... No ... not good!

So do we just print the money to cover our debt?
Well... we could... but that would lead to hyper-inflation like pre-nazi Germany or like in Argentina a few years ago. Basically... banana republic monetary policy!

Holy crap! 150 Billion dollars a week, every week, just to cover our debt the Congressman mumbles as he turns and walks away with his head up his ass!

What's is a stimulus payment?

The Economic Stimulus Individual Payments program will be explained in this Government sponsored Q & A period:

Citizen to Government Official: What is a stimulus payment?
Government Official: A stimulus payment is your federal government giving you free money in hopes you will spend that free money and help stimulate the US economy.

Citizen: Where does the free money come from?
Government: The check you will receive is generated through your tax payments.

Citizen: ... but my tax dollars are the original source of all Government money... so you mean my tax dollars are just coming back to me?
Government: Correct... another question please!

Citizen: Why don't you just let us keep more of our own money instead of sending it to Washington DC?
Government: The Government needs to administer the money so it's fair for everyone.

Citizen: What do mean 'fair' to 'everyone'?
Government: Some people that did not pay taxes need to get tax money they didn't pay given back to them.
Citizen: What?
Government: Next question please!

Citizen: But if they didn't pay taxes... then they're getting money from the people that did pay taxes?
Government: It's called 'spreading the wealth around'... now sit down and shut-up.

Citizen: On what do you suggest we spend the Government money which is really our money?
Government: Well... if you buy a car the money will go to Japan, Korea or Germany. If you buy a new Computer the money will go to India. If you buy a new digital TV the money will go to China. If you buy fresh fruits and vegetables the money will go to Mexico and Central America. If you fill your tank the money will go to the Arabs. If you buy a bunch of useless crap you don't need... the money will go to Taiwan. We suggest you go to garage sales, your local liquor store or any fast food outlet.

Citizen: Gee... thanks... I think!

In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue...

Well this is an interesting little fact.

The Obama spending bill (and it's OK now to call this disastrous stimulus package a spending bill because Obama is now referring to it as a spending bill) is about $800,000,000,000 ($800 Billion or just under $ 1 trillion... what's a few hundred billion anymore?). Hey what happened to the stimulus?

Now we all remember the old saying... "In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue." Columbus discovered the Americas in 1492 (sorry... Mr. Erickson) and this is 2009... so 2009 - 1492 is 517 years ago! (Wow 517 years ago... was that like before Madonna was born?) So that equates to 188,705 days ago... just to be sure... 517 years x 365 days per year... yes... 188,705 days ago.

So this one spending package is equal to the U.S. government spending tax payers money at a rate of approximately $4,000,000 (4 million dollars) per DAY, EVERY DAY... since Columbus discovered America.

I know! I know what you're saying... "That can't be accurate!" Please... run the numbers... it's true! Spending $4 million a DAY, EVERY DAY since Columbus discovered America.

Insanity! Can you say inflation? I fear for the Republic! I think I'll take my shoe off and throw it at the Capitol building!

This is a joke... but I'm not laughing!

OK... I've heard it all. Obama is now saying: Without this $ 1 Trillion stimulus package the "recession may be irreversible".... Irreversible... power word Mr. President! Are you sure you want to use that term... irreversible? Then he adds: "This recession might linger for years. Our economy will lose 5 million more jobs. Unemployment will approach double digits (Just a note: where I live, it's already there). Our nation will sink deeper into a crisis that, at some point, we may not be able to reverse."

So let me get this straight... without an extra $35 Billion for the Energy Dept our country will never recover? Without $142 Billion extra for the Dept of Education our country will not recover? Without $650 million for digital TV coupons our country will never recover? Without $50 million for the Endowment for the Arts our country will never recover? Without $350 million for birth control our country will never recover? Without an $87 Billion bailout for State Medicaid our country will never recover?

Mr. President... please... way too much drama... not to mention your trying to scare people! Whenever the government wants some huge wasteful spending bill passed quickly they play the crisis card! Just admit want this bill passed quickly so the American people don't find out exactly what's in this gigantic pork chop!

You seem to be forgetting just a few facts here. #1) We the people, our children and grandchildren will be left paying for this debacle long after you're gone from office. (Just a note: It seems like several of your appointees have trouble paying their fair share of existing government programs) #2) You are significantly increasing the size of government and its intrusion into every citizens life right down to what they can smoke, drive, eat, drink, pray, watch and listen to. And #3) this program is significantly contributing to the creation of a "nanny state class" of citizens which will be more and more dependent upon government services to sustain their lives... this Mr. President... is a sin!

Most economic analysts agree only about 20% of this $1 trillion stimulus (spending bill... yes ,this is an out of control spending bill... not a stimulus package) is actually economic stimulus... gee... that leaves 80% or about $800 Billion in PORK... PORK... and MORE PORK. You seem to think only the government can get us out of this economic situation. Sorry... I'll put my money on the the free enterprise system... not the government. Hell, the government can't even get coupons out for digital TV conversion... and you say you want government run healthcare... what a joke... I digress... back to the topic at hand.

Here's an novel idea... you want to stimulate the economy... stop all payroll taxation for the next 6 months. That would be about $1 trillion, or the same sum you want infused into the economy through government spending... one big difference... the people would decide where to spend their money... not the government! Let everyone take home what they actually make! What a revolutionary idea! Just think what that would do for the economy... immediately... not 2 years from now when mid term elections are coming up!

I'm sorry, I didn't hear your response! I can't hear you over the screams from democratic politicians calling for my head! Oh... you say the government wouldn't get their share if we stopped taxation... Exactly, that's the point!

Whelping a litter!

I've held off commenting on this for a while now because I just knew there had to be more to the story than what was first reported. So now that more and more info and facts have been coming out... I just can't hold it back!

Having a baby is probably the most wonderful experience anyone can have. Having twins would be an even more unique experience! Triplets would be a test! But we’re talking about octuplets... just imagine giving birth to 8 babies! EIGHT! Eight babies at one time!

Sorry... I'm having trouble comprehending this! Maybe I'm just a little too practical but this isn't normal for humans. There are words for this... like WHELPING and LITTER... Not to mention, SHE ALREADY HAS 6 KIDS!!! 6 + 8 equals 14!!! GOOD GOD... 14 KIDS! Now obviously this woman has some serious psychological problems, not to mention her future financial responsibility... oh, that's right... she's not picking up the tab for all this... WE ARE! Where's Brad and Angie when we need them?

Here's the really disturbing aspect of this disaster! All these babies are the product of IVF. IVF means some fertility Doc had to thaw, fertilize and implant these embryos. Thawing, fertilizing and implanting these embryos was a conscience act... not just some random act or freak of nature... it was intentional! What ethical physician would commit such an act? Ethics probably had nothing to do with this... but getting published in a medical journal probably did! When it gets right down to it... this Doc should NEVER be allowed to practice medicine again.

Don't give me any of this "judgmental" crap... like... 'It's not up to us to decide what she can do with her body and eggs... it's her decision'! Wrong! It's not ethical by any medical or human standard, plus, we're paying for it. This is like asking my neighbor to pay the vet bill and expenses of raising my dog's puppies... except were talking about humans!

My guess... next stop Oprah and Dr. Phil... or some other talk show that will exploit this tragedy! Has anyone thought about the future for these kids?

This is whelping a litter... human style! Spay the bitch!
