Can we PLEASE save our Country?  How many more dollars are we going to print, that we can’t cover, that are going to be spent for expenses that are not part of the enumerated powers granted to the Federal Government by Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution?

“The 1,000-plus-page bill covers spending for the Departments of Education, State, Health and Human Services, Transportation and Housing and Urban Development, among others. In all, six of the 12 spending bills Congress is required to pass each year is folded into one measure that raises spending for its designated programs by an average of about 10 percent, or well above the inflation rate.”

I find it funny that you can stick 5,000+ pork spending projects in a 1,000+ page bill.

The legislation also:

— Includes an improved binding arbitration process to challenge the decision by General Motors Corp. and Chrysler LLC to close more than 2,000 dealerships.

— Renews a federal loan guarantee program for steel companies.

— Permits detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to be transferred to the U.S. for trial, but not to be released.

— Calls for federal worker pay increases averaging 2 percent.

By The Way, the reports of how many in the Government make over $100K a year, yep sure that’s true.  Where I work I’ve seem 50% of the actual workers retire and an increase of 50% of Engineers hired.  Most of them make at or over $100K.  The people who do the actual work, 2% doesn’t even cover the increase in their Healthcare.

Another Land Grab?

Upwards of 40 percent of all land in the United States is already under some form of government control or ownership — 800 million to 900 million acres out of America’s total 2.2 billion acres.

The government now appears poised to wield greater control over private property on a number of fronts. The battle over private property rights has intensified since 2005, when the Supreme Court ruled in the Kelo v. City of New London case that the government could take property from one group of private landowners and give it to another.

I would say that the largest land grab ever was under the watchful eye of Teddy Roosevelt.  The National Parks sucked up some of the most valuable land this Country had to offer.  And though it should belong to all of us, they pass rules and laws that totally restrict what the land can be used for and what you can even do upon it.

Do you know how much land the Federal Government is actually permitted to control according to the Constitution?  Try this;

Article 1, Section 8, para 17,

To exercise exclusive legislation in all cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten miles square) as may, by cession of particular states, and the acceptance of Congress, become the seat of the government of the United States, and to exercise like authority over all places purchased by the consent of the legislature of the state in which the same shall be, for the erection of forts, magazines, arsenals, dockyards, and other needful buildings…

The District at present is 68 sq. miles.  Any questions about the Government expanding it’s range and power?  We’ve gone from a couple of seaports and weapon storage areas to 900 million acres of land.

Didn’t get the message?

Gore, speaking at the Copenhagen climate change summit, stated the latest research showed that the Arctic could be completely ice-free in five years.

In his speech, Gore told the conference: “These figures are fresh. Some of the models suggest to Dr. [Wieslav] Maslowski that there is a 75 percent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during the summer months, could be completely ice-free within five to seven years.”

But as things would have it, just like the rest of the Global Hoaxing crowd, Algore is lying to everyone.

However, the climatologist whose work Gore was relying upon dropped the former vice president in the water with an icy blast.

“It’s unclear to me how this figure was arrived at,” Dr. Maslowski said. “I would never try to estimate likelihood at anything as exact as this.”

I call this a bald face lie.  As most liberals often do, he has another explanation for it.

Gore’s office later admitted that the 75 percent figure was one used by Dr. Maslowski as a “ballpark figure” several years ago in a conversation with Gore.

At some point everyone will get the entire picture, which is Global Warming is as big a hoax as Global Cooling was, Y2K, Or Climate Change.

    “The Emperor and His Clothes”….for those old enough to have had this read to them..hum? All along, Gore has sold this, to those who were uninformed and naive, and all along, those of us who ‘know’ recognized him for what he is………..an angry man who is REALLY mad he isn’t prez, so decided to defraud the American citizen and the world along the way. His pockets may be full, however, he will, in the end, be recognized as the flim flam artist he is, and prob always was. OR so I believe… 🙂
    ==========================
    One can hope that Karma is real and he suffers from his fraud of Global Hoaxing. S.O.S. indeed.

    The congressional arrogance which is on display louder than ever before will have consequences, Chas. We will be pushed only so far. The fact that the Tea Party has more support at this time is indicative of how deep is the anger of the people. Somehow this tyrannical attitude toward the population will be reversed.
    =================================
    Or a revolt is in the making. As you say we the people will allow us to be ignored for only so long.

    How right you are about the federal workers pay. Then you have the private sector thinking wow I wish I had one of those high paying federal jobs with the great benefits. Yeah right. They don’t have a clue.

    Gore isn’t even in the ballpark. The man doesn’t have a clue.

    I love your insight Chas. Your posts always provide food for thought.

    Thanks again.

    I wish I had the answer but I still would not want to live any other place.
    =========================
    Not I. But we have to fight the left swing we are heading towards and resolve to fix the massive spending.

    Good Morning Chas,
    How much can the American people take-from this Administration?
    Great Post Chas.
    ==================
    Hopefully not much more. 2010 might temper it a bit. At least we can all hope.

    Fascinating and slightly scary. Kelo vs City of New London. Ok this is unsettling for anyone group who owns land. Al Gore and Dr. Maslowski. talk about awkward, really awkward. The look on Gore’s face must have been really awkward. Nothing great post. Keep them coming.
    ===================
    Gore is an idiot and a hypocrite, plan and simple.
