Your Money Becomes Theirs

Heard of Solyndra, right? Apparently, more “green” companies are about to tank.
And what’s more, the Administration has had $2.4 billion in hand and planned for use involving these extra upcoming failures.

Now, what do you think about that? Criminal? Or truly incompetent at managing finances?

Either way, the wrong people are in charge within our Government. Remember November 2012.

This Is Not Politics

This is obstructionism at its worst.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) tried to bring up the House-passed payroll-tax bill for a vote with the intention of summarily rejecting it, but Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) objected. McConnell pushed for the Senate to first vote on an omnibus spending bill that would fund much of the federal government through 2012 and avert a shutdown after Friday night.

The two leaders ended their exchange with no immediate path forward. McConnell urged Reid to negotiate with Boehner, but Reid said “the Speaker can’t negotiate with me until this bill is killed” — referring to the payroll-tax measure.

Read the whole thing.

Screwed Yet Again

Because the Pres**ent B Obama loves to play politics (but with real cause and effect), we will not get any additional oil from Canada (due to putting off the Keystone Pipeline decision until ….. later, much later).

Apparently, BO thinks this is smart politics.

At the expense of 300 million citizens of the United States. (Because, Canada will now sell to others.)

Just like he has done with Obamacare.

He only cares about himself.

Come November of 2012, let’s care enough to open the door for him – and shove him out.

Protesters Don’t Want Jobs

You figure it out.

And, while you’re at that, think about their supporters.

Pelosi Says Government Should Shut Down Boeing Plant Where Workers Refuse to Unionize

This is not how we are supposed to operate in this country.

The sole goal in a case such as this is to separate a worker from a percentage of their earnings to feed an organization that only supports one specific political party.

Sounds like theft, socialism, Marxism, to me. What say you?

It Takes Two

According to the Mayor of New York City, one-percenter Bloomberg – if there is anyone to blame for the mortgage crisis that led the collapse of the financial industry, it’s not the “big banks,” but Congress.

I’d go along with that but for one thing – it takes two to tango.

Congress (aka, Barney Frank) may have tilted the field by pushing and allowing Fannie & Freddie to ‘relax’ loan policies, but this has to spread to the banks in order to complete the process. And don’t forget, President Bush sounded warnings about this and tried to get Fannie & Freddie investigated – but Congress, aka, Barney Frank and others, prevented that.

You’re pandering again, Mayor, you reeally need to clean up the place. Starting with the park.

Cause And Effect

Thanks to Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.

The following information is almost one year old.
But, it shows how many people have jobs working for Apple as of last year at this time.

Just think, two people, in a garage, started all of this:

SAN FRANCISCO | Wed Oct 27, 2010 7:53pm EDT
(Reuters) – Apple Inc said it has raised its employee headcount by more than one-third from last year, as it warned again that it expects its gross margin to fall in coming quarters.
Apple said it has 46,600 full-time employees as of September 25, up from 34,300 a year-ago and 32,000 in 2008.Most of that increase came in the retail segment, where Apple now has 26,500 employees, 10,000 more than in 2009. Apple has 317 retail stores, up from 273 a year ago.

Thank you, Steve & Steve.

Anybody with an Apple product, should thank you also.

Obama Versus Dingy Harry

Maybe these two are at odds with each other?

The Obama campaign sent out an email today asking supporters to urge Congress to at least vote on the president’s jobs bill almost immediately after Democratic majority leader Harry Reid blocked a vote on the bill in the Senate.

On the Senate floor today, Republican leader Mitch McConnell asked for unanimous consent to proceed on voting on the bill. Reid, who has struggled to find enough votes for the bill in the Democratic caucus, objected to the motion and killed the opportunity for a vote.

Because the above doesn’t ring true to what Barak said about the GOP holding up his “jobs bill” …….

How Not To Create Jobs Part 2

By enacting Patent Law changes that will ultimately hurt our country, our innovators.

The first paragraph -

On Sept. 16, at a ceremony involving some fanfare, President Obama signed the ironically-styled America Invents Act into law. While posed as an effort to “modernize” U.S. patent law by “harmonizing it with the rest of the world,” the bill actually represents an effort by multinational and foreign corporations to crush America’s vital culture of independent inventors.

Can you say – unConstitutional?

How Not To Make Jobs

And lose all of the confidence from the entire voting public in this country?
(Yeah, I know. Oversimplifying. But somehow, I expect he does not care.)

You raise new regulations (again) that will result in the loss of 500 jobs in Texas.

You raise taxes, and eliminate deductions, on the very people that are the backbone of job creation in this country.

You say a jobs bill is paid for, yet expect to raise $400B more in taxes.

And, somehow, nobody seemed to notice that Congress raised the debt ceiling last Thursday yet again, by $500B. Suspiciously, this figure is remarkably close to the amount the POTUS is claiming his “immediately pass this bill” is already “paid for.”

How can anyone believe this POTUS any more?
