White House Claims $$B Savings In 2 Years

WASHINGTON, DC – President Obama today announced nearly $4 billion in combined federal and private sector energy upgrades to buildings over the next 2 years. These investments will save billions in energy costs, promote energy independence, and, according to independent estimates, create tens of thousands of jobs in the hard-hit construction sector. The $4 billion investment announced today includes a $2 billion commitment, made through the issuance of a Presidential Memorandum, to energy upgrades of federal buildings using long term energy savings to pay for up-front costs, at no cost to taxpayers.

At no cost to taxpayers? Huh? How is that possible with the billions needed to be spent by federal and private sector energy upgrades, as mentioned above?

What are they smoking in the White House? Will it need to be fumigated come January 2013? Seems it will.

DOJ Sues Another State

This time it is Utah. Two days before Thanksgiving.

The first paragraph from their own, uncolorful, website proclaiming –

WASHINGTON – The Department of Justice today challenged Utah’s immigration law, which comes after recent lawsuits in Arizona, Alabama and South Carolina.

How, selfish, of them. Telling states they are not allowed to protect themselves, their lawful residents, their budgets and their way of life. Is it the Feds job, Eric? Then why don’t you do it??

By the way, Eric, where is the money coming from to support all these lawsuits? Just how many states are you willing to sue? Do you really expect the states to respect you for this?

No soup for you, Eric.

No Thrill Up His Leg

Seems Chris Matthews might be seeing no light at the end of this Administration’s term? Is that right?

What? Is Chris Matthews trying to become Conservative?

Don’t make me laugh.

Proof Protester Knows Nothing

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.

Pelosi Is Against Your Freedom to Choose

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.

Obamacare Support Now At 34%

Support for President Obama’s health care reform law has reached an all time low, in part because of Democrats’ diminished faith that the law will improve their lives, a new poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation finds.

Only 34 percent of Americans now support Obamacare, a 16-point drop from an all-time high of 50 percent in July 2010. A small majority of Americans, 51 percent, now say they oppose the law.

Occupy Wacky Sitins

Especially this dude that – doesn’t – quite – get – it.

“It’s weird protesting on Bay Street. You get there at 9 a.m. and the rich bankers who you want to hurl insults at and change their worldview have been at work for two hours already. And then when it’s time to go, they’re still there. I guess that’s why they call them the one per cent. I mean, who wants to work those kinds of hours? That’s the power of greed.” – Jeremy, 38
