Imagine

by

The dream world calls to the President.  Now I am all for not being all negative all the time and I am happy that his message is trying to sound a bit more positive, but let’s not confuse uplifting with fantasy.  “What we’re starting to see is glimmers of hope across the economy,” the president said, although he also noted that the economy is “still under severe stress.” What we are seeing Mr. President is a Congress that is spending us into a debt that 10 generations cannot pay back.  What we are so far seeing is that Billions of dollars have been spent and only banks seem to feel the effects.  What we are seeing is 8.5% and rising are out of work.

And to be fair, this isn’t on you so much as it is on Congress.  But you are the bully pulpit, you are the leader.  Bush took the whipping and now it’s all yours.  Time to stop blaming Bush, stop blaming AIG and start blaming the people who sat back and did nothing.  The GOP lead Congress, even though asked, did nothing.  The Dem lead Congress even though asked did just as little, just got more money for their campaign’s in not doing anything.

“Whatever we do ultimately has to translate into economic growth and job,” Obama said. Sorry to say sir, so far it hasn’t.  Your “stimulus” didn’t even get noticed when it showed up in my pay check.  If it wasn’t for the note at the bottom, I wouldn’t even have known.

I hope all the reading of the people that I read, that say this positive thinking is wrong.  No one that I see, (other than the Presidents people) thinks this is going to do more than just slow down until this time next year.  The cost, $2Trillion, isn’t cheap and certain not worth just slowing this down.  I believe it would have been easier and cheaper to just let it go hit the bottom sooner than later, so we could rebuild.

It was estimated that the debt would increase by$150 Billion.  Turns out it was $192Billion.  I mean come on a billion here and a billion there and the next thing you know we’d be talking Trillions.  Oh wait we are because  the prediction was 1.7 Trillion but only half way through the budget year and we sit at over $956Billion.  And talking about even more spending.

And if you think making 12 million illegals citizens isn’t going to cost a chitload of money you might just want to review what it cost us when we started the “Great Society”.  Medical cost shot up like 400% in 4 years.  And before you say but the Government is going to control cost, that’s what they said then also.  This part is really, really simple.  You are going to add 40 million people to a system that can’t actually cover the people who are in it now and you expect those cost to drop?  Economics 101, demand drives price.  If there aren’t enough medical people, which there isn’t, the demand out grows the supply and the cost goes up.  Adam Smith isn’t out dated, believe me.

041009_obowma Sure glad the Press Secratary cleared up that bowing mess, informing us that the President was ONLY reaching down so that he could get to the Kings hand.  Otherwise I might have to think that the President of the most powerful country in the world, was kissing the ring of a thug.

Anyone can see that he is just trying to tie his shoe.  :mrgreen:

Being Easter Weekend, I wish everyone a great weekend.  The best part of this weekend, aside from the obvious, is that all the buttholes are out of town and they can’t do any damage and the weekend shows will have less to talk about besides the up coming Tea Parties.

    I think we should be concerned,
    this government wants us to believe, what they want us to believe,
    with the MSM behind them it might be possible,
    something just like the bow, they say it wasnt a bow, wow,
    does the President have a bad back?
    is that what they will say next….lol

    I don’t see it happening, but I would like to think a repeat of 1994 would take place. but I fear we are too far down that path.
