Magots in Government

I was very incensed during the Obama years when he asked to Congress for an 800 billion dollar stimulus for shovel ready infrastructure projects. Neither the Democrats, Rino’s or Republicans gave a shit about what mattered to me, they all lined up waiting to vote for Obama’s second near trillion-dollar gift.

I still ask the question which of the 800 billion dollars went to a shovel ready job? My answer came a year or so later when Obama admitted that there were no shovel ready projects, but it sounded good and the people swallowed the bait. He got what he asked for. Had we spent that money on infrastructure we could have built a fence across both the southern, and northern borders and replaced every rotten bridge in the country, but we spent it on keeping Obama cronies well fed, and millions of people stayed unemployed. Now, these same maggots who call themselves Congressional leaders won’t spend a dime to give a real president what he promised the people. He promised because we the people elected him to do so. I can’t wait for the next election to vote more of these slime balls out of existence.

The border is porous, it is vulnerable, it is easy to cross. We need something more than more border patrol officers and sensors. Sensors work if you stomp across the border and wake them up. Our dear leaders should read a book titled “The Coyote’s Bicycle,” (Kimball Taylor).

The Coyote’s Bicycle is a story about a young kid in Mexico whose family deserts him to take care of his aged grandfather while they all cross the border to a better life. The grandfather dies leaving the kid to fend for himself. At the tender age of twelve he leaves town to find his family. He ends up in a Mexican border town and waits for his opportunity to cross over. He learns that there are men called coyotes who make big money to take people across. He waits and learns the business by watching.

Eventually, the boy becomes a coyote, and makes a million dollars smuggling people into America. He has a secret. He smuggles his customers across the border through the areas where it is too hard to build a fence. He gets past the sensors because sensors listen for foot steps, but they cannot detect the sound of bike tires rolling across. His added advantage is that his customers can move quicker on a bike, and thus avoid border patrols more easily.

Today, I heard Senator Chuck Schumer present a plan for border security. Guess what? All of his ideas are those this young coyote learned to defeat.

When will we learn that democrats don’t have an original idea nor are they capable of thinking of one? All they ever think about is how to entice new voters to keep them employed. It is time we begin to think about how to use the right our Founders left us, i.e. to use our second amendment rights to rid ourselves of the vermin who insist on turning our country into a mindless socialist state.

The Chicago Way

6a00d8341cf3a353ef00e54f0dc5968833-800wi

I laughed the first time, and I’m laughing again, except when I realize it is my money being played with.

Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House.
One is from Chicago, another is from Kentucky, and the third is from New Orleans.
All three go with a White House official to examine the fence.
The New Orleans contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil.
“Well,” he says, “I figure the job will run about $9,000. That’s $4,000 for materials, $4,000 for my crew and $1,000 profit for me.”
The Kentucky contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, “I can do this job for $7,000.
That’s $3,000 for materials, $3,000 for my crew and $1,000 profit for me.”
The Chicago contractor doesn’t measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, “$27,000.”
The official, incredulous, says, “You didn’t even measure like the other guys. How did you come up with such a high figure?
“The Chicago contractor whispers back, “$10,000 for me, $10,000 for you, and we hire the guy from Kentucky to fix the fence.”
“Done!” replies the government official.
And that, my friends, is how the Government Stimulus plan worked.

Sometime this year, we taxpayers will again receive another ‘EconomicStimulus’ payment.

 This is indeed a very exciting program, and I’ll explain it by using a Q & A format:

 Q. What is an ‘Economic Stimulus’ payment ?

 A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

 Q.. Where will the government get this money ?

 A. From taxpayers.

 Q. So the government is giving me back my own money ?

 A. Only a smidgen of it.

 Q. What is the purpose of this payment ?

 A. The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.

 Q. But isn’t that stimulating the economy of China ?

 A. Shut up.

 Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the U.S. Economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:

 * If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China or Sri Lanka .

 * If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs.

 * If you purchase a computer, it will go to India , Taiwan or China .

 * If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico ,Honduras and Guatemala ..

 * If you buy an efficient car, it will go to Japan or Korea .

 * If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan .

 * If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.

 Instead, keep the money in America by:

 1) Spending it at yard sales, or

 2) Going to ball games, or

 3) Spending it on prostitutes,

 4) Beer or

 5) Tattoos.

 (These are the only American businesses still operating in the U.S. )

 Conclusion:

Go to a ball game with a tattooed prostitute that you met at a yard sale and drink beer all day !

No need to thank me, I’m just glad I could be of help.

 

Put Another Log on the Fire

One thing a Boy Scout learns early is how to start a fire. Fire is essential to survival. Since POTUS has never been a Boy Scout he needs to learn the best way to make a roaring fire is not by striking a match to a big tree. A good Scout starts his match to dry fine tinder, moves up by adding twigs, and then larger sticks, eventually, when the flames are hot and strong, he adds a moderate size chunk of log. The US economy is now at a stage of a small fire. It is barely hanging on and it needs incentivizes to grow stronger, but not with a honking huge log.

The heart of our economy is small business. It needs to be nurtured and fed sales in a continuous stream without interruption. If business has its tinder taken away in the form of taxation or new regulatory costs there is not enough left to feed the fire and make it grow. The overall effect of a huge stimulus at this point would certainly be to squash any business activity with inflationary costs. My advisor tells me that there is no inflation, and I ask him if he has bought milk or gas lately? Sure, electronics are not rising in price, but the stuff of everyday life is rising very fast.

Do not get your votes at my expense Mr. President, get my approval by doing something right for the country, RESIGN!

A Bill For Services Rendered

I just received a bill that set me back on my heels. What the heck did I spend on to get a bill like the one below? I do not spend much at all, but the government spends on my behalf. They do a very good job too. The problem with their spending is that I do not see any benefit. So why am I getting the bill? You will get one too. This invoice is for every person in the USA. The problem is that after I pay this bill, I will get another one to pay for my counterpart who has not worked.

Do Walls Really Work?

It seems to me that China wouldn’t be anywhere if it weren’t for our disgraced President Nixon. It was he, who opened the door to the east and allowed the USA to export its entire manufacturing base to that country. Now, we have a President that apologizes for a heroic state that chooses to enforce our federal laws. Yep, we are a nation of laws alright.

I challenge Obama to look at China’s record of keeping people  out of China. They know that walls work. A five thousand-year history should be proof enough.

Had Obama spent his trillion-dollar stimulus money on a fence across the south and north borders, the economy would be booming and the illegal immigration problem would be under control.

I agree with Forrest Gump; “Stupid is as stupid does.

“A Gross Betrayal and Abuse of Our Trust”

My Flag Flies Everyday

My Flag Flies Everyday

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.
