“A Gross Betrayal and Abuse of Our Trust”

I just read a post on the  conservative BLOG Backyard Fence. It reveals a plan for re-taking our republic. So many of the concerns registered by this blogger are my own.  I wish his words were mine.  I promised him that I would link his site and post his plan on GrumpaJoesPlace.  Here is the opening.  Click the link to Backyard Fence to get the entire piece.

“CONSERVATIVE ACTION PLAN

In order to Restore our Republic, We the People of the United States of America hereby declare and affirm that we will engage upon an Emergency Action Plan to ensure the bail outs and excessive spending are all rescinded.

After that has been achieved, we will then embark on a longer term program to fully Restore our Representative Republic.

EMERGENCY ACTION PLAN

The singular observation we made early this year, after calls and letters to the government were between 50 and 100 to 1 against the TARP program and all subsequent spending, was that our government no longer represents us. Indeed, our government has begun harvesting us and our resources against our will and in direct opposition to our best interests. This is a gross betrayal and abuse of our trust and shall not stand.
Emergency Demands:

1. Repeal the Stimulus Package.
2. Repeal the Omnibus Spending Bill
3. Recall the Budget, eliminate all unnecesary spending and pork and re-submit for a vote

 It’s a good read. If we can see it and believe it, we can achieve it.

One Hundred Million Dollar Bone

Throw the Dog a Bone

Oh yes, yes,  please  throw me the 29 cent bone, and I’ll gladly pay $28,571.43 at the checkout.

How stupid does POTUS think we are? Feed that line to your liberal thinking “tax the rich,”  loving supporters.

Subtrafuge

Obama's Spending ChartIn my business, I was taught to look for places to cut costs. This is a graphic world. We can process information easier if we see it graphically. POTUS has been spending money like a drunken sailor, and it’s been bothering the heck out of me. The most recent dialog on the news concerns the massively huge bonus package being given to AIG out of the bailout money from the government.   I agree, one hundred sixty five million dollars is a huge amount of money. It is so large that most people can’t process the number. Most likely because many of us accumulate much less than a million dollars over fifty years of hard work.  Those who do amass that much can retire,  as long as they also receive Social Security. The population is angry that we donate our tax dollars to save a failed company, and then reward the men who caused it to fail with bonuses twenty times larger than a typical nest egg.

What I can’t understand is why the citizens of this good country aren’t upset with the antics of our elected  representatives. The chart above shows it clearly.  All I have done is graph the costs of the federal budget, and the various bailout bills next to the cost of the AIG bonuses. The left side of the chart is graduated in trillions of dollars. I ask you this; if  this chart represented your personal expenses, and you had to trim your spending, where would you look first? Which area would produce the most benefit if it were attacked looking for savings?  Do I have to explain further?  Lee Iaccoa, chairman of the Chrysler Corp wrote that he could cut ten percent out of any budget and no one would notice. Ten percent of the first bar on the chart amounts to three hundred and fifty billion dollars. Any one with a brain could trim that bar deeper than ten percent. If you have a job in manufacturing in the USA you are faced with making cuts of that nature everyday. There are many qualified people who could see where to make cuts. Most of these people are managers, accountants, and engineers. Do we have people from these disciplines sitting in the Capital ?  

Why then, are these morons in the White House and the Capital steering all the news toward the AIG bonuses. Do they think we are as stupid as they are? Do they think the people of the USA are so dumb as to not see through their subtrafuge. It is clear to me they are trying to deflect the news away from massive spending they call “Change You Can Believe In.”  

Here is something to think about; after spending all those dollars shown in the chart all we will have left is “change”  in our pocket.
