The Financial Dilemma America Faces That No One is Willing to Solve – Let’s Do Some Math

Here are some numbers to consider that are mind boggling. It is important that you are aware of these numbers: Our government borrows roughly 40 cents of every dollar it spends (Politifact) In 2012 the government will take in about $2.17 trillion in tax revenue and spend $3.82 trillion – the difference is roughly 43%.Continue Reading

Cap and Trade Passes the House

This should be the last political post for a while. I just think there needs to be more awareness of what is going on and so I am doing my small part here. If you don’t know what is going on with the cap and trade legislation you better wake up. Cap and trade isContinue Reading

Taxes Going Up in Smoke

During the campaign we were promised repeatedly that if you make under $250,000 you would not see higher taxes. Here is one quote from Sept 12, 2008 from then candidate Barack Obama – “I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form ofContinue Reading

What Will They Regulate Next?

I love my pickup truck. It is great for doing home projects and helping people move. I guess I have to say that I am a little irritated at the move by the Obama admin to make these trucks more expensive and raise fuel economy standards. I can’t afford a hybrid and don’t care toContinue Reading

States Need to Spend Stimulus Responsibly

Did anyone else think Obama telling states they better spend their stimulus money responsibly was funny? On the federal level they can spend money on mice and tattoos…but you states better keep close watch on how you spend it. I think we have gone insane as a country. I also cannot believe how we areContinue Reading

Temperatures at Past Inaugurations and the Effects of Global Warming

Did anyone else here the guy say that it probably didn’t snow this year because of global warming? Was that Chuck Todd? It was 28 degrees in Washington D.C. at the inauguration so it could easily have snowed. Second, we are in the middle of a huge cold front that is freezing everyone out atContinue Reading

Rick Warren, Obama, and What is Mainstream

So president-elect Obama picked Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at his inauguration. What is the problem? People are saying he is not mainstream enough…not even that. He is a radical! What makes him so radical? His conservative stances on abortion and same-sex marriage. A CNN article yesterday quoted the President of the American way,Continue Reading

Obama Defeats McCain

Hopefully tomorrow we will have a picture of McCain triumphantly holding up a newspaper with that as the headline… As far as I can tell McCain had no campaign. When he debated you couldn’t understand half of his explanations. He didn’t pursue Obama on his weaknesses. He didn’t tell us clearly and concisely what hisContinue Reading

American Tax Payers Buying Bad Loans and RISK

Is it just me or did it sound like McCain was saying the government needed to buy up the bad loans? I wonder where “the government” could get so much money from? Does the government produce any income? Does the government make payroll due to their profits? No. Taxes. So let’s say it like itContinue Reading

Biden – Palin Debate: Any Feedback?

Just a few thoughts…interested to see what your reactions were. It seemed to me like Palin pretty much held her own. She did appear weak in some areas where she completely skipped the question and went back to stock answers on energy policy in Alaska. Biden kept giving that goofy (maniacal?) grin. Biden seemed toContinue Reading
