|If you had an employee who was getting $160,000 a year, plus a full time staff, travel expenses, and a huge budget to work with, but never showed up for work, what would you do? Obama proudly lists on his resume that running for President is the most substantial thing he has ever accomplished. I am sure that his campaign manager must be surprised by that bit of hubris. What has he done though to earn $320,000 the past two years while he has been paid for being a Senator?
And his response to McCain returning to DC to actually punch the time clock and have an impact on the debate about the economy is met with snide comments about being able to multi-task. Thatís sort of like a guy playing golf, getting a note that his wife is in the hospital saying he can multi-task by continuing to play while calling her on the phone to wish her well.
Here is an easy solution to this economic crisis, and I give Planned Parenthood the credit for making it so crystal clear. They announced that because of the economic crisis they are going to give out free abortions for a while. But why not de-fund Planned Parenthood and apply that money to the crisis? Then take every single earmark that was just passed by congress and put that on the balance sheet representing less money the taxpayers have to cough up for this unbridled greed and corruption.
Donít stop there. What is HUDís budget? And what does HUD do besides make sure that the government can dictate to a property owner who they can and canít rent to. Close that useless agency and add that money to the crisis column. Convert that government building into high priced condos so that it actually serves an income producing purpose.
The Department of Energy? What does it accomplish other than preventing us from drilling for oil in our own country to achieve oil independence? What really is the purpose of that agency and dozens of others like it that sit on prime real estate in the nationís capitol, devising ways to curtail liberties and impose greater restrictions and regulations on us.
If you took the entire budget of HHS, which is larger than many countries in the world, divide it by the number of families it claims to help with its plantation handouts, and provide an advisor for each one, it would not only save the taxpayers millions, but it would bring an end to a totally failed system that has institutionalized dependency and served to rob people of their dignity and freedom. Oh, and convert that building into low income housing where each family is responsible for paying rent...from the 20 new jobs they will get once the restriction for them finding work has been lifted.
These government agencies have either robbed freedoms from the citizens, or they have enabled citizens to continue with irresponsible behavior, rewarding them at every turn. Itís sort of like Obama saying he wants to give the UN almost a billion dollars more to help end poverty in the world, when he canít even pull out his own checkbook and help his own brother who is living on less than $10 a month in Africa.
So, if you take out all those earmarks and special interest giveaways that are in the budget and fire candidates who are on the government payroll while pursuing their own careers, close abusive and oppressive government agencies, tell the UN that you will only pay the bare minimum to be a member since you have only one vote, like a country that pays $10,000 a year to belong, allow drilling off the coast to bring the cost of gas down, and start selling a lot of the real estate that the government has acquired through the centuries . . . they wouldnít need an economic bailout or stimulus package, because all of that would solve the problem.
What is Barack Obamaís solution? To insist upon a debate because the country deserves to hear his eloquence. Heh, earth to Barack . . . we have been hearing from you for two years now and it is getting old, tiresome and redundant. Other than adding a few more states to the union, you really havenít done or said anything that would have us believe that one more debate will reveal a unique thought. Give it up. It is hard to break it to a self-proclaimed messiah that there really is an issue bigger than you.
