I have to thank my good friend Lou for sending me this piece of wisdom. It seems I am always the last to know these things. In trying to find the source author of this remarkable description of Liberal Progressive thinking I have learned that it is a very popular piece being circulated on blogs and via e-mail. I think it is worthy of sharing again, lest we never forget how stupid our country has become. The author is still unknown, who ever you are thanks for a great lesson.

Founded by geniuses – run by idiots
  • If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

 ;
  • If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
 
  • If you have to show  identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a  library book, but not to vote who runs the government … you might live in a  country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

 ;
  • If the government wants to  ban stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines with more than ten  rounds, but gives 20 F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt … you  might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

 ;
  • If, in the largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not a 24-ounce soda because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

 ;
  • If an 80-year-old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a woman in a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

 ;
  • If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

 ;
  • If a seven-year old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

 ;
  • If children are forcibly removed from parents who discipline them with spankings while children of addicts are left in filth and drug infested “homes”… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

 ;
  • If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government intrusion, while  not working is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized  housing, and free cell phones … you might live in a country founded by  geniuses but run by idiots.

 ;
  • If the government’s plan for getting people  back to work is to incentivize NOT working with 99 weeks of Unemployment checks  and no requirement to prove they applied but can’t find work … you might live  in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

 ;
  • If you pay your  mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big screen TV while your  neighbor buys iPhones, TV’s and new cars, and the government forgives his debt  when he defaults on his mortgage … you might live in a country founded by  geniuses but run by idiots.

 ;
  • If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more “safe” according to the government … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

One blogger who posted this piece suggested that it might be even better if one substitutes the word idiot with the word liberal, or socialist. I think it best to leave it alone as the word idiot defines it perfectly.

This Young Lady Has Got it Right!!!

I don’t know who this young lady is, but if she really does exist, I will vote for her.

SNOPES doesn’t show this. Check out the Waco Tribune Herald, Nov 18, 2011.

Don’t Mess with Texas!

 This young Lady has got it right!!!“IF YOU CAN’T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER,YOU’VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM”

WRITTEN BY A 21 YEAR OLD FEMALE     Wow, this girl has a great plan!  Love the last thing she would do the best.This was written by a 21 yr old female who gets it.  It’s her future she’s worried about and this is how she feels about the social welfare big  government state that she’s being forced to live in!  These solutions are  just common sense in her opinion.This was in the Waco Tribune Herald, Waco , TX , Nov 18, 2011PUT ME IN CHARGE . . .Put me in charge of food stamps. I’d get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans,  blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want  steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I’d do is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal legations. Then, we’ll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use  drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.Put me in charge of government housing.  Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your home” will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be  inventoried.  If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your  own place.In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a “government” job.  It may be cleaning the roadways  of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you.  We  will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo  and speakers and put that money toward the “common good..”Before you write that I’ve violated someone’s rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary.  If you want our money, accept our rules.  Before you  say that this would be “demeaning” and ruin their “self esteem,” consider  that it wasn’t that long ago that taking someone else’s money for doing  absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.

If we are expected to pay for other people’s mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices.  The current system  rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.

AND While you are on Gov’t subsistence, you no longer can VOTE!  Yes,  that is correct.  For you to vote would be a conflict of interest.  You will  voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov’t  welfare check.  If you want to vote, then get a job.

Cut 1.5 Trillion From Federal Budget in Ten Minutes

My Flag Flies Every Day

Watch this video for a very brief and concise plan to cut Federal Spending by 1.5 trillion in ten years.. This task took the 535 several weeks to decide they could not do it. Amazingly, not  a single social program was touched. So what is our problem? Maybe the 535 should be impeached for failure to do the job.

I Call and Raise You a Trillion

Poker is not one of my games, but I know enough to realize a hand with a low pair will lose to a royal flush.

POTUS is currently handing out his usual campaign rhetoric about Republicans killing granny and we have to tax the rich some more. Throughout his campaign I heard his sorry story about how the Republicans only wanted to hand the voters the same old crap that doesn’t work. It seems the shoe is on his foot now. He is the one spewing the same tired old ideas that don’t work

This week Representative Paul Ryan announced a new plan for cutting spending, saving Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. At the same time his plan will cut the deficit and balance the budget.

Obama panicked when he saw the plan. The tone of his voice and agressive attack on the plan made it obvious that he feared the young congressman who proposed it. In his panic I’m sure he commanded his advisors to spend another trillion to take the plan apart line by line, word by word like he goes over the budget with his scalpel. He has to destroy this plan or he is a one term president.

My last job as a private sector worker was to create plans.  Most of the projects were to introduce a complete multi-part product line. The work included design and development of the products as well as the plastic molds, automated assembly, and automated packaging involved in production. It is not easy. The first task is to define the goal. Once we set the goal, all the plans centered on achievement. The plan usually took several groups many days, and often weeks to develop. When we finally presented it to upper management, they typically took our timeline and folded it in half. It was never good enough. Most times, however, by working the plan at a feverish pace removing every obstacle in the way of the critical path, we made the original estimate.

Planning is hard, picking on a plan is easy. In Obama’s speech to George Washington University students, he ruthlessly picked apart Paul Ryan’s “Path to American Prosperity.” For some reason, Obama cannot see prosperity as an outcome for anyone but himself. President Obama very arrogantly presented his own plan. It was his generic old campaign BS about cutting the deficit without a single suggestion for how he will do it; not a single specific. Yet, he picked apart a very detailed plan with many specifics. The details are what  make it easy for the criticizer to pick something apart.  There are thousand ways to skin a cat, and one man’s choice of a way to carry out a task may not be another’s.  Yet Obama decided to critique Ryan’s plan without offering a single  alternative. He chose instead to mis-represent the plan with blatant lies intended to scare.

What Obama and his leftist cronies fail to understand is that old guys like myself would be happy to choose their own plan for medical care, just give us the opportunity to do it. Currently, Medicare is not a choice. Medicare has been forced upon us by a government that believes it knows what is best for us, and now that same government is placing blame for the bankrupt system on the people it forced into using it. The new system, or Obama-care, is the new democrat disaster for eliminating a poor plan. With its death panels, the current Obama-care law is the plan that will kill granny, not the Ryan suggestion.

Obama and the entire Liberal world does not have a rats ass clue how to even start on a plan like the one presented this week. Obama’s rhetoric is still the same, i.e. rob from the Capitalist Fats Cats to feed government Fat Cat Bureaucracies. Oh, and trickle a speck down to the poor too.

He has never revealed his goal, except to state that he wants to transform America. Transform it to what?

We the People must insist that the President be called upon to present his specific vision and specific plan for transforming America.

Here is one last thought:  If the president finally succeeds in destroying capitalism, and every single job in America is gone, and all of us depend on the government for life sustenance, who will continue to feed the monster?

An Obama-Care Anecdote

It has only been a few months since Congress immorally, and illegally squeezed through the huge Health Care Reform bill. The effect is already showing. Yesterday, I took my beautiful wife to her cardiologist for a check-up. She is currently paranoid about losing her healthcare insurance because of an incident that occurred this month. She received a letter from a collection agency. She does not do too well with any threat to her credit score. The overdue bill was $24.55.

Her secondary insurance is from the State of Illinois, and you may be aware that the state is on the edge of bankruptcy. The result is they are slow at paying their obligations. Peggy is the victim of their stupidity. Our visit to the cardiologist was the result of stress she suffered from the collection notice.

The real point of this post is our conversation with the doctor. The doctors are waiting to see what, if anything, Medicare will pay under Obama Care. If their payment drops to the level of Medicaid, well, his practice does not accept Medicaid patients. The practice cannot afford to keep an office open on that level of payment

Here is my advice to all of you liberal, progressive, socialist, baby boomer, ass kissing Obama health care reform, new Medicare recipients; sit down, put your head between your legs, and kiss your ass goodbye. There is an excellent chance that you will see a death panel of big government clerks before you will see a doctor.

How in the hell could you be so stupid as to believe that a government that cannot handle the cost of one social program (Medicare), that it will be able to manage a gargantuan (twenty-two hundred page) loosely defined plan?

Here is my wish for you:

I wish you eternal happiness, as you slave endless hours all your life to get a free happy pill from your new health care system.

A Health Care Prediction

Alot of speculation is taking  place on the news about the new health care bill. First of all, why the rush? Everyone seems to want universal health care, so a good proposal should pass easily. I happen to believe the rush to get it done has nothing to do with health care. It has to do with power grabbing. Strike while the iron is hot. No doubt POTUS will use the economy as the reason there is a need for speed.  Just where is all this cost coming from? The government pays Medicare, and Medicaid.  The first is for old guys like me, the second is for someone one who is disabled or on welfare. Well we all know that Medicare is going broke, even though it is a so called insurance plan that we pay into.  At the moment my personal health isn’t expensive, but I was married to a lady who had a heart attack and she turned into an expensive case. 

I don’t believe for one minute that the cost of healthcare is such a drain on the government. If it is, it is their own damn fault for signing  so many people onto the Medicaid part of it.

Another thing, if Medicare is going broke with only a small portion of the population eligible, then  how in the world will POTUS pay to care for the entire population?

If POTUS is so hot to have universal health care, pass a bill that requires all citizens to have it, period. That’s what most states are doing with car insurance. If you get caught driving without it,  you go to court or you go to jail. The same can be done for health care. Show up at a doctor or the ER without an insurance card and they jail you after they treat you.

In the meantime, my vision for what will happen on Obama-Care is in the following cartoon. Scary hilarious isn’t it?

Dr Consults with Federal Obamacare for Direction

Converting Dollars to Cents

Government"s Idea for HealthcareIt is not that I don’t trust big government with my health care dollar, it is that I don’t trust big government with any of my dollars. I see a record of tired old ideas that have failed to produce the utopian society that they were invented for.

 Take education, as an example. We spend more dollars per student than any country in the world, yet our kids can’t read. Why?

 Take Medicare as another example. It is a system that is limited to the senior population. Yet, Medicare is broke. Why? One reason is that over the years it has been expanded to include too many non-seniors.

 Take the DEA as another example. Are we really winning the war on drugs?

How about the Department of Energy. Invented by Jimmy Carter to reduce our dependence on foreign oil in  the 1970’s. Have we seen an effect yet? I could go on and on with every department in the government and report a dismal record of expenditures. Why do we insist on continuing these stupid lame policies?

The cartoon above depicts my vision  of how our tax money will be used by big government on healthcare.
