I Get An F

by

Yep.  I have to admit I failed Podcast 101.  I had my notes, downloaded the necessary sound software program and established a podcast site.  Yet, even with reading the directions I couldn’t get it to work.  So I’m back to the drawing board.

Still, I should have something so I will post my notes and fill them in a bit and go back later and try again to make the podcast work.  First I have to get the sound working again on my laptop.  🙄

—————————————————————————————————————————————-

I think they should have a test to be an elected official.  You should have at least a working knowledge of the Constitution I would think.  Recently Eleanor Holmes Norton, took to the airwaves to wail about the “Masters in Congress” who decide what the DC government can or cannot spend its own money on.”

“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, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings”

This comes straight from Art. 1 Sec. 8 of the Constitution.  Maybe she should try reading it.

SEN. BENJAMIN CARDIN:  “But right now, we need to complete this year’s budget that started October 1 last year, that ends September 30. We’re committed to making sure we get that budget done.”

So 8 months after the fact, now you consider it the GOP’s fault that we still don’t have one?  Let’s be honest here this budget was due to be in place a full month before the 2010 election and Democrats kicked the can down the road because they just didn’t believe, (and still don’t) that the Tea Party represented a large section of the Country and it’s voters.

SEN. BENJAMIN CARDIN: Democrats are prepared to negotiate in good faith. We’re not prepared, though, to give up the rights of the United States Senate or the rights of the American people.

The American people’s rights?  Since when do we consider bankrupting our system of Government a right of the American people?  Since when do we consider breaking the backs of the American people a right of theirs?   The call and cry of the American people was made very clear last November.  Less Government, Less waste and less debt.  And if safe Democrats like Cardin can’t see that, then maybe it’s time for Maryland to wake up and make him feel a lot less safe.

I see once again my favorite “spend until it hurts and then spend some more” economist Paul Krugman is trying to savage Paul Ryan’s budget plan.  All I can say is given that he uses the term Voodoo a number of times, (reminding us of Reagan’s budget plan), can leave me to no other conclusion that it must be a good one.  Because as most of us history people remember we snapped back for almost double-digit everything except pay raises , to a historic rebound in economic growth.

The President was in Fairless Hills, PA the other day.  I happen to grow up in the area.  In fact I played ball in the local YMCA in the town many years ago.  When asked about the price of gas by a local man this is his response according to the WH.

I know some of these big guys, they’re all still driving their big SUVs. You know, they got their big monster trucks and everything. You’re one of them? Well, now, here’s my point. If you’re complaining about the price of gas and you’re only getting eight miles a gallon–(laughter)–you may have a big family, but it’s probably not that big. How many you have? Ten kids, you say? Ten kids? (Laughter.) Well, you definitely need a hybrid van then. (Laughter.) . . .

So, like I said, if you’re getting eight miles a gallon you may want to think about a trade-in. You can get a great deal. I promise you, GM or Ford or Chrysler, they’re going to be happy to give you a deal on something that gets you better gas mileage.

Isn’t this the same candidate that blasted Bush for high gas prices in 2007 and 2008?  Wasn’t the press all over Bush for the cost of gas rising to almost and over $4 a gallon?

 

It seems that both the President and the media face a conundrum. If they were at all honest, which very few believe either all, then this President would be just as accountable as the previous President was for the high prices.  So why did it cost me %50 to fill up my little Ford Ranger this morning and I do not hearing any outcry at all from the media?

Can it be that the President’s green agenda is more important to him and his media than our economy improving?  The two are of course tied together so tightly that no one can deny that it is so.  An increase in the pumps at some point shows up on the clothing rack and the grocery store shelves.

He asked to help Brazil drill more and we can be her best customer.  How about we let us drill more and be our own best customer?  If, as your supporters claim, it will take 10 years for us to get oil for the coastal shelve so we can’t drill our way out of the high prices, what makes you think that Brazil is going to do any good?  Do you  think they are going to be able to do it faster?

Yet how courageous is it to whack poor folks and promote tax cuts that favor the wealthy?– Pete Marovich.   And I would ask Pete what’s so noble about stealing the earnings of those who earn it?

Now Mr. Marovich might say that it is their obligation to help but charity at the point of a gun is hardly charity.  I would point Mr Marovich to read Th. Jefferson who said; “A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned – this is the sum of good government. “

And this, my friends, is the essence of the structure of our Government.  Not a nanny state that bans Happy Meals or demands you wear a seat belt.  Our Government was designed to reward us for hard work, innovation and being frugal.  Not punish us for passing on our gains of a life time to our children or placing punishment taxes on us for drinking a beer.

It’s time we got the Government out of our back pockets and our private lives.  To reign in it’s power over us and return it to a Government the governs less.  Because as Jefferson said that which governs less, governs best.
