Tigerís speech was pretty good. Although, I had to make three trips to the bathroom to puke. I believe that it was the best speech that money could buy. He has a good staff of writers and handlers; they did a good job and are handling the situation pretty well. Tiger should apologize to his wife, but I donít think he should apologize for having sexóthatís a basic human right. It was obvious from his speech patterns and his mannerism that Tiger actually believed all the hype written about him for the last twenty years. He quoted some famous person who said ďItís not what you achieve, itís what you overcome.Ē What a bunch of crap, Tiger hasnít had to overcome anything, well, maybe small insignificant things, nothing major. He still has his big house, massive amounts of money in the bank, the only thing heís lost is a little of his future earnings and a big share of that will come back. That and his reputation, heíll be known along with President John Kennedy and others as a famous womanizer, if only I could join that crowd, I would....
Why is it that only men have to go to into therapy? Thirty years ago Tiger would have been a real man and these women would have been sluts. I guess the big wheel has turned 180 degrees. Now the man is the slut and the women are WHAT??? Oh yeah, victims. Regarding his therapy (and only because I canít afford it), some of these clinics are nothing but high priced spas/resorts/hotels/brothels (pick one or pick íem all) with 5 star chefs and high priced hookers, disguised as physical and massages therapists. If I were rich and well known, I would have a scandal just so I could spend a month in the lap of absolute luxury. There is no word on whether Tigerís medical insurance is picking up the bill. Well Tiger, have a good time in the loony bin; I wish I could join you.
I supported Obama over J. McCain and I still believe that Obama is doing just as well as J. McCain would have. J. McCain was a weak candidate with limited ideas on fixing America. I believe that he would have given all of the tarp money to banks and when they paid themselves huge bonuses he would have said thatís the way they do business. The Republicans canít offer up a loser and expect people to follow him. I didnít and I wonít. S Palin is another light weight candidate by the time her contract with FOX runs out she wonít be able to get re-elected to mayor of any small Alaskan town.
Obama on the other hands is so naive that itís pathetic. He really believes its Americaís foreign policy that causes Muslims to hack-off each otherís head. He really believes that if you call an Islamic cold-blooded hate-killer, terrorist by some other name it will help the situation. That is naÔve and funny.
The real problem is that no one stands up for America. American politicians let Hugo Chavez, Putin, and other world leaders bash America and get away with it.No one condemns the massive amount of anti American hate speeches. America has been condemned by so many pathetic little politicians that people believe them.
Poorly run, wretched little countries in Africa, South America, and Asia have always blamed America for their problems. A good anti American hate speech can arouse the masses and reflect criticism from the real cause of their problemsóusually corruption, incompetence, and socialism. So many countries blame America for their failures, that hating us has become standard third world political practices. Socialism, along with government corruption, the lack of work and educations values, and large families are never to blame.
Note: itís also pretty standard for black Americanís to blame the government and/or white people for their problems. Black church leaders are known for their anti government and anti white speeches. I think that Obama was generally surprised when people called his pastorís speeches hate rhetoric.
Regarding the Austin plane bombing, itís too bad that I couldnít have hooked up with the pilot, before his timely death. We could have ranted together. If everyone who feels like he did grabs a plane and bombs the government there wouldnít be any planes left in America. The thing is heís not alone. But blaming the little people working at the IRS is meaningless. The vast majority of government workers are just well paid middle class Americans.
Have a nice day and thank for reading my blog.
Itís been 11 days since I posted mostly because I donít have anything nice to say, so Iíve been keeping my F-bombs to myself. Conservative Republicans are blasting Obamaís stimulus plan, but not one has mentioned the 625 billion dollars that G. Bush borrowed each year. That money is gone and weíll never get it back. The one nice thing about the stimulus plan is that money will go for some of my pet projects. 1) Fixing the electrical grid before we have a major meltdown. 2) Computerizing medical records, this could save Medicare and Medicaid 75 billion a year by reducing fraud. 3) Renewable energy; wind and solar power are the biggest weapons against terrorists. Terrorists get their money from the massive amounts of money that we send to the Middle East.
Itís a foregone conclusion that some sort of massive bill will be passed, but if this writer had his way, we would spend the entire amount on renewable energy, itís that important. Itís irresponsible for so called conservatives to think that renewable is pork. Conservative talk show hosts like Glenn Beck and Bill OíReilly show their ignorance or they are getting big bucks from the oil industryóbuying their opposition to renewable energy. I think itís money. We need a federal law forcing political reporters to identify their source of income. If Exxon is funding the Glenn Beck show, the viewer should know it.
On the salary cap: Itís smart to cap the salary for companies that are taking our grandchildrenís money. Expect a big exodus of greedy executives, but expect their replacements to be just as good if not better. At least they will be dedicated to the firm and an eventual turn around. The current crop of me first Wall Street executives should go away and stay away. Itís ironic, these Wall Street executives paid themselves billions while running their companies into the grounds, and people are worried that the companies will lose talent. Who would want them? If a company hires them sell your stock in that company as quickly as you can. Better yet send these pathetically arrogant little Wall Street brokers to China, Iran, and Russia; let them run those countries into the ground instead of our country.
On television, reporters are talking about these men as if they are talented financial managers. What the fuck are they thinking? For the last twenty years these men filled their pockets with cash when they went home every night. Legal maybe, but they had fiduciary responsibility. These men are criminals and if they are not, we need massive legal reform.
On history: during the late 1980s we went through the same crap. Remember the saving and loan crisis? Remember Charles Keating and Lincoln Savings and Loan that cost the taxpayers $2.6 billion? Remember the 12 years in prison that Keating got for massive fraud. Remember the Resolution Trust Corporation set up by the feds to fix the housing market. Remember that savings and Loan crisis cost hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars. Finally do you remember how many went to jail? Very few, and most are out of jail. Crime in America pays, but only for Americas elite. Only for Ivy League smart men.
The God damn government didnít fix anything then and they arenít fixing anything now. We didnít fix anything after the Enron crisis, and we didnít fix anything after WorldCom, Inc. scandal. Accountants are still borderline crooks; corporations are still borrowing off the books; greedy corporate managers are still sucking America dry.
On the California sow: the women who sowed-out with a litter of eight kids should be arrested for conspiracy to defraud the taxpayers. The doctor and hospital, at the least, should be boycotted and at the best, the doctor and hospital administrators who did this should be arrested and their assets seized. Book deals or money made should be seized by the government. There is no miracle, there is nothing God-like in this, there is nothing natural about this. A doctor has a fancy drug. A woman has her legs spread and her feet up in the stirrups. A man is in a cubical looking at a dirty magazine and jerking off.
How can elected officials do nothing about this? How can they not be raving mad? If I was a congressman, I would have a bill making the doctors and hospital officials responsible for the children. At least there is some anger in the media. For years sows were evaluated to mother of the year as if they had done something great.
On Gitmo:this prison should never have been used from day one. Why Bush and his advisors set up a special prison for terrorist remains a question. The really bad terrorist should have been killed outright, while the rest should have been imprisoned in Eastern Europe, India, Afghanistan and Iraq (under American control,) and Egypt. Instead, Gitmo has been the focus of the anti-American/war crowd. Iíll be glad when itís gone. Bushís second mistake was not closing it himself and killing off the detainees. Now, imprisoned in America, weíll spend millions on their trial and imprisonment.
On Leadership: So how can Democrats dominate Congress and the White House? Why have Americans turned their back on the wealthy? Itís about leadership, well, bad leadership from the men and women who should have been out leaders. Last Year a spokesman for the Rockefellers family said, we need to focus on renewable energy. From 1970 to 2008, thirty-eight years, the Rockefeller family was mute on renewable energyóabsolute zero leadership. With the help and guidance of Wall Street, the wealthy transferred a massive number of jobs out of America, where they are exploiting cheap labor. Modern America products made by foreigners are cheap and poorly made and sell for a high price. Jobs that couldnít be transferred out like retail and construction were given to uneducated foreign workers, who worked cheap and needed government subsidiesóhealth care, food and housing just to live. Programs like affordable housing, food stamps/aid government health care have become enormous, transforming America into a socialist country. All of this was done with approval from the wealthiest Americans. They did this for profit, while getting massive tax breaks and underfunding American retirement programs and borrowing eleven trillion dollarsóin a large part, to support their foreign labor force.
On hypocrites: is the stimulus package 800 billion plus the normal 625 billion dollars budget deficit that has been borrowed each year by G. Bush. Republicans that are questioning the plan should look in the mirror. Here is some irony, the Republicans, under Regan, Bush 1 and Bush 2 has borrowed more money than the Democrats under Bill Clinton. The choice is between big spending Republicans or the socialist Democrats. Either way, America is following a very bad path.
On Bill OíReilly and R. Morris: R. Morris, the author of Fleeced was on the Factor with Bill OíReilly and said that B. Obama wanted to use the banking bailout to nationalize our banks. Well, what the hell did G. Bush want? It was the Republican who allowed the wealthy to fleece America. R. Morris also said that G. Bush didnít know what he was doing, well thatís true. He said, ďThe big infusion of cash moves America from an investor driven economy to a government driven economy.Ē Well, that started with Reagan and we are well on a way.
Nothing is Free:State and federal regulations govern how credit agencies like Experian, Equifax, and Trans Union can use our information. But companies like Freecreditreport.com arenít regulated, because they are not a credit agency. They run our credit report and then sell our information to the highest bidder. Thatís how they make money, and how they can spend massive amounts of money on advertising. Just be warned nothing is free. By the way, the guy singing that ďin your faceĒ rap song for Freecreditreport.com is making his way up my list of people I would like to beat the crap out of.
On crooks: men working on Wall Street and at big Banks are redefining themselves in new and improved ways. But theyíre still players, theyíre still grayliners operating right on the line and theyíre still crooks with massive greed. Redefine are you want, but itís still business as usual. Your greed will destroy us, and then you will have to deal with redefined Americans.
On the bailout: one final thought, banks are under pressure again, the credit market hasnít opened up, and banks arenít loaning money. But who would they loan to. GM, with both feet in the grave, airline companies, a little more of a downturn and they will all be in bankruptcy. A homeowner with a foreclosure freeze possible; money could be tied up for years without the bank seeing a dime. Good companies donít want a loan and they arenít borrowing; they canít be blamed for that. Bad companies will take the money and pay their executives massive bonuses while they wait for the market to turn or until bankruptcy proceedings are initiated.
Címon, banks loaned money back to the federal government. The feds handed over 350 billion dollars to banks and they in turn loaned it back to the federal governmentóa round-robin process. Hand over more money and the banks will hand it right back. Where will it end
On Jan. 20, 2001 the Federal government owed 5,727 776,730,304.64 dollars, (5.7 trillion dollars.) At that time, G. Bush inherited a balanced budget from Bill Clinton. Eight years later, on Jan. 15, 2009 the federal government owed 10,627,708,753,691.49 dollars (10.6 trillion dollars,) a difference of 4,899,932,023,386.85 (4.8 trillion dollars.) G. Bushís administration borrowed 4.8 trillion dollars; a total of 612,491,502,923.35 (612 billion dollars) per year. The Ronald Regan, Republican style tax cuts didnít work, the tax cuts implemented by G. Bush left the economy in a mess. G. Bush pushed deregulation but without regulation (oversight) American business raided the piggy bank destroying the banking, insurance, brokerage, and Real Estate markets. G. Bush and his administrators sat in the White House doing nothing, while allowing the wealthy to steal everything in sight and destroying nearly everything put in place since the great depression. All the safe guards, rules, and regulations developed to protect our financial community, insurance business, and Real Estate market were deemed unnecessary and chopped off at the head. G. Bushís presidency was a dismal failure and he is the worse God damn president America has ever had.
On being conservative: Iím supposed to support G. Bush because Iím a conservative white male. I donít think so. Iím supposed to support Republicans because Iím a conservative white male. I donít think so. Iím supposed to be for tax cuts because Iím a conservative white male. I donít think so. Iím supposed to believe that global warming is a myth because Iím a conservative white male. I donít think so. Iím supposed to be against renewable energy because Iím a conservative white male. I donít think so. Iím supposed to believe in the bull shit coming from the mouth of conservative radio and television talk show hosts, because Iím a conservative white male. I donít think so.
I donít see today as some big historic occasions. The fact that B. Obama is black is immaterial. I supported B. Obama because I thought he was the best man for the job. If you voted for B. Obama because he is black you shouldnít be allowed to vote ever again. If you voted against B. Obama because he is black you shouldnít be allowed to vote ever again. If you thought J. McCain was the best man, you should read Smart Drugs & Nutrients by Ward Dean, M. D. and John Morgenthaler
H Clinton didnít run as a woman, she ran as a tough bitch, I supported that and her. B. Obama didnít run as a black man, he ran as a man. I supported that and him, butÖ. B. Obama is starting off poorly, the biggest coronation in Americanís history, you ainít king, bud. You need to stop thinking of yourself as Black or making history and get on with the job.
On how to destroy an economy: the crap that people are talking about is getting bizarre. Some people want to freeze foreclosures. For whom; black people, foreigners, Mexicans, women, people with bad credit? Who should make their payments; the middle class, white males, the wealthy? Once foreclosures are frozen who will lend money to buy a house? Nobody; the credit market would be dry. If you had a million dollars would you loan it out to people who want to buy a house. Hell no, because its lost money, if they never make a payment.
If you freeze foreclosures, IĎll take a thousand houses. I can lease them out for $1000 a month, pocket the money, and never make a payment. If foreclosures are frozen, no one should ever make a house payment again. Freeze foreclosures and the Real Estate market is finished. Freeze foreclosures? How can people be so fucking dumb? Itís getting bizarre in America.
Bailing out dysfunctional companies. For at least five years we have had to listen to Ivy League smart men tell us that GM and Chrysler are no longer viable companies and they need to declare bankruptcy. Their business plan is dysfunctional. Their cars are ugly. Their payroll is out of line with the world. Their retirement programs are flat out bad. So what happens; Washington blinks. When the time comes, they get a bailout. Now, we have to listen to Ivy League smart men tell us how important GM and Chrysler is to America. Citibank is doing what they should have done before the bailout, their downsizing. Thatís what stupid companies do when they bite off more than they can chew; they downsize; going back to their roots, the stuff that they know. But the fifty billion or so dollars that the government gave Citibank is gone, sucked up by a losing money pit.
Regulate the financial market. The credit market is dry because nobody in their right mind would loan anyone money to buy a house, car, or build a business. If foreclosures are frozen, an investorís money could be tied up for years without any income. Why are people in Washington and the media so blind to that fact? Regulate the housing market; foreclose on every house when they are three months behind. Fix it now.
On hate: In the media, there is talk about hatred of the wealthy, the rich guy, and the losers in Washington. In my blog, there is hate and downright contempt for the wealthy and those in power. Iím not against wealth, IĎm for money, for capitalism, for greed. I believe that these things are good; they motivate and are good for any economy. Iím against uncontrolled greed; Iím against getting rich at any cost. Iím against grayliners, who operate in the gray areas of the law. Man, if you need an attorney to know if you are doing the right (legal) thing, youíre not. On Burris: this contemptible little man is filled with arrogant disrespect for every single citizen in America. Why would any man go against the will of the people? The Senate should have run him out of Washington; instead, they talk about seating him, at least until the voters, can vote. On the Senate: why canít you do the right thing; spineless cowards in the senate would seat Bin Laden, if he votes with their party. If you had sent Burris packing you would have earned back some of the respect that you have lost. On massive CEO salaries: if a CEO is getting 100 million or more, than senior VPs are getting 20 million or more, even middle management can earn massive salaries and bonuses. American corporations, brokerage companies, banks have been sucked dry by greedy managements. They should pay back the money that they have taken. Instead, our grandchildrenís money is being used to bail out billion beggars. Yes, we hate you and I have nothing but contempt for you. Corporations have maximized profits, jeopardizing our standard of livingócars, and appliances are of poor quality. Food and products are cheap but of poor quality. Technology has been transferred to China, so a few stocks will sell for a premium; little men have jeopardized our future for profit. On leadership: where do we find the leadership to lead us out of this mess? It should be no surprised that B. Obama won, J. McCain offered the same old tired rhetoric, weíve heard the lip service before, and it grates on our nerves. J. McCain claimed he wasnít G. Bush yet his record shows that he voted like him. On G. Bush: the headlines read, wishful and relieved. G. Bush is a prime example of The Peter Principal which should be renamed the Bush Principle. He was overwhelmed the last few years. From his words, he still isnít aware of the damaged that has been caused by his presidency. He borrowed 5 trillion and left America in shambles. On selected outrage: here in Dallas a white cop with sixteen years of service was shot and killed by a two-bit black criminal. Not one single black person spoke out; the guy was buried with minimal fanfare. We have nothing but contempt for black people who riot after a shooting by a cop. The black folk in Oakland should be told to shut up. On the Miracle on the Hudson: this is one of the many good stories that have surfaced this year. The pilot better than good. The plane better than good. The civilianís rescuers better than good. Now I pray that attorneys are better than good. The airlineís insurance will pay for hospital bills, hotel rooms, and other out of pocket expenses. I pray that no one sues.
On big mistakes: B. Obama made his first big mistake when he said only the government can save us. America has never been about big government, medium government, or even little government. America is about people being free to start and build a business. Weíre about thinking and putting our thoughts into action. We need reform now. We need to stimulate the economy, while scaling back government, and balancing the budget. Do that Mr. Obama and youíll be president for life. So where do we start: Bushís tax cuts have to be repealed. Get out of Iraq now, scale back the military in Europe, and unleash the CIAóbe ruthless, our enemies need to be killed off. Federal and state retirement programs have to be scaled back. Social Security has to be scaled back for those that donít need it. Medicare and Medicaid need massive reform. The Medicare drug program should be repealedóthat was the dumbest God Damn bill every passed. The budget has to be cut across the boardóevery department, and every salaryóby 3 or 4 percent. Bad government programs need to be cut and sent to the scrape pile. Renewable energy programs will provides jobs and reduce our trade imbalance and should be funded by the government. The Pickens plan should be funded, a trial city should be selected, and cars converted to natural gasóletís see if it will work. Electric cars are the future and the government needs to fund research into manufactory techniques and batteries. Start ups for electric carsónot some flex fuel or hybridóshould be funded. Billionaire beggars should be told to shut up, that big bailouts is overóbankruptcy is part of business, we should not be afraid of it. The last item, these greedy little men running Wall Street, our banks and companies, and who have nearly destroyed our country; go after them, take away their money, and put them behind bars for life.
Iíve been working on ďon not making itĒ the next section in this post, but I think that Iím rambling, it doesnít sound right, so read it if you will.
On not making it: I woke up knowing we arenít going to make it. Weíre not going to get through this economic downturn. Life is headed down into a deep unknown abyss. Losers in Washington, Wall Street brokers, bankers, and CEOs are trying to keep the status quo. The 14 million dollar yearend bonuses, the 100 million CEO packagesóbut greedy management compensation has destroyed the balance of income between the average American and those lucky enough to be in a position of authority. The status quo has ripped the heart from America. Politicians, like B. Clinton, make massive amounts of money when they leave officeóremember Bill Clinton buying million dollars houses, one in New York, and the other in Washington. Politicians in America make huge amounts of money, but only if they keep the status quo.
Lou Dobbs was outraged about the proposed increased gas tax, but what does he propose? That we wait until gas goes back up and send 500 billion a year to our enemies in the Middle East. Lou Dobbs is thinking about ratings and his income not the long term future of America. Heís not thinking about making it.
Donald Trump was on television complaining that a bank had used bailout money to buy a bank in China not to give American businessman a loan. But my gut feeling is that much of the bailout money went into government bonds. The federal government borrowed money to give away to banks so where did are that money come from? From Banks!
Do legitimate businessmen want a loan? Now is the time to scale back and prepare for the future not to expand in a very risky market. Force loans on solid businesses and they wonít do the right thing. Theyíll take risks that will destroy their company. Loaning money for a house or car to people whoíve never paid back a loan in their life is absurdósome people donít deserve a car or house. The government canít force them to be middle class.
A lot of the commercial Real Estate (empty retail spots) was leased out to marginal companies that are the first to go when things turn south. Many sold expensive junk that nobody needed; in no way should they get a loan to keep going. Some banks and companies, like GM with their ugly cars, arenít worth bailing out.
How did we get to this point where everyone needs or wants a bailout? How can an economy primed with 500 billion a year fail? Weíve had nearly eight years of borrowing 500 billion dollars per year, now they want to borrow a trillion dollars a year to keep us going. Most Americans have lost confidence in part because of the huge national debt. So what are we doing increasing the debt?
Did all the loans and bailouts solve any problems? NO. Did it reform or fix the banking system? NO. Did it reform or fix Wall Street? NO. Did it reform or fix GM? NO. Did it reform or fix the insurance industry? NO. The bailouts main objective is to maintain the status quo. But the status quo is dysfunctional.
We need reform, Social Security, private retirement, and health care reform. We need a balanced budget. We need to decrease our dependents on foreign oil. We need to fix our trade imbalance. If B. Obama focuses on fundamentals, if he is truly for change, he will succeed.
If not, we are not going to make it.
On the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007:Fair to whom; one of the problems that have hit businesses is the mandatory increase in the wage scale. Just as we face the second biggest downturn in this century, businesses are forced to increase their employeesí hourly pay. The Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007 should be repealed; wages should be scaled back. From January 2008 to January 2010 the wage scale will go up about two dollars per hour. Businesses will be forced to increase prices, stop hiring, and/or lay off workers to maintain the same salary structure.
On Blagojevich and Burris: This is what makes American politics so bad. There is no shame. Blagojevich should have quit instead of making the taxpayers fund an expensive inquire. Burris should have never accepted an appointment from a tainted governor. Instead, both men have attorneys and both men are suing or threatening the taxpayers with lawsuits. Both men want to walk away with millions of the taxpayersí money. The attorneys want to walk away with millions of the taxpayersí money.
But both men should go to jail. The despicable lying scum tells us they didnít do it, Burris said ďI have no money,Ē then itís reported that the money trail between Blagojevich and Burris is huge. Besides being a despicable liar Burris is an arrogant idiot.
On the war: Hamas soldiers hide weapons and explosives in their home, in Mosques, in hospitals and schools. Hamas soldiers hide behind women and religion. Political and religious leaders recruit suicide bombers from the weakest members of the vast uneducated masses of Muslim society. The Middle Eastern Muslim culture has no respect for women, children, or life. Muslim men demand respect from the world but it is impossible to respect men who have no respect for themselves or others. Even as we listen to Muslims telling us how great their society, culture, and religion is, we can see the truth: we know the truth.
On the American media: the American median continues to give Muslims, their religion, and culture more than their due.A society that allows their leaders to prey on the uneducated, that encourages terrorism, and suicide bombers, deserves no respect. Men who hide behind women and children who use their churches as military depots and encourage the weakest members of their society to kill themselves deserve no respect. The respect the media has for absolute scum, borders on the bizarre, the American media need to call scum, scum.
On Rockets and Food: Itís typical for Muslims to cry aloud for food and medical aid while their supply of rockets seen to be never ending. Beggar governments that spend their money on military supplies then beg for food should not receive the worlds supportóliving on the charity, while plotting genocide should not be tolerated. How can the world continue to support a country that puts bullets ahead of education, jobs, and its people?
On worldwide protest: itís obvious that the protests against Israel were planned in advance, that part of their war planning is worldwide protest. Americans participating in these anti-war protests against Israel should be ashamed of themselves. Itís surprising to me that so many Americans are willing to associate themselves with a despicable group like Hamas.
On Burris: becoming more despicable by the day. On Blagojevich: guilty or not, just plan despicable
On GM: to reward the television industry for supporting the bailout, GM has been running quite a few television ads. But their cars seem overpriced. They seem too big. The styling seems radical and too modern, bordering on ugly. One car was ugly, it was too big, and it was overpriced. I hope the ads bring in the buyers, but I donít think so. I think the bottom line is that GM is no longer a viable company. Arrogance from management down through the hourly workers has destroyed this company.
On California: one of our wealthiest states, itís been run into the ground by well-meaning do-gooders. They need to cut programs, cut government workers, and reduce their retirement payout.
A lot of what ails state governments is ďemployment of last resort.Ē States have employed people, especially minorities, when they couldnít find a job, when their skill set wasnít needed or when they didnít have proper education. Employment of last resort is a big dog that has tore into state budgets and taken a big bite from the economy.
On the Middle East: I have written before and often that the solution for Middle Eastern turmoil is to take away their money. The price of oil has to be reduced to three dollars a barrel. This is war 101, taught everywhere by military instructorsótake away their money, destroy their economy, and reduce their access to raw material. Other then oil, the Middle East has no economy, without the West paying massive amounts for oil; they would be leaving in povertyóbuying weapons, funding terrorist groups, and fighting with Israel would be the last thing on their mind. They would be struggling to fund their government and feed their people.
The solution is wind, solar, and electric cars, (in deference to Mr. Pickens, natural gas could be added to that list.) A heavy tax on the price of gasoline would help fund the transformation to renewable energyówhile forcing Americans to conserve. Renewable energy would produce American jobs, it would reduce the trade imbalance, and it would solve global warming. Yet idiots still question the viability of renewable energy.
G. Bush is quite simply the worst president America has had. Heís sucked the treasure dry, borrowing 500 billion per years and transferring the vast majority of Americaís wealth to wealthy Americans. Heís allowed incredibly greedy men to transfer vast amounts of technology and jobs out of America and to run their companies into the ground. He allowed banks and investment banks to destroy the credit market in America. G. Bush has put Americaís future in jeopardy
In 2004, the Democratic candidate for the presidency was John Kerry, a socialist, standing left of Carl Marx and Friedrich Engels. He wasnít even smart enough to drop a few bones to conservative white males who were sick of Bush. John Kerry was a weak candidate running a limited, shallow campaign. He lost to the worst president America has ever had, making Kerry the worse candidate for the presidency in Americaís history.
In 2008, the Republican candidate offered up the status quo, more borrowing, more tax cuts, and more of the same. J. McCain was and is to Bush Like, and he ran a limited shallow campaign.
We will hear a lot about history being made, and the unlikelihood of B. Obama being elected. But quite simply, he was the better man for the job. His ideas, his grasp of the current situation, his understanding of foreign policy, and the war in Iraq and Afghanistan was more insightful than J. McCain. The fact that heís black or nearly foreign born, or has Muslim leanings is immaterial. The better man was elected.
The only good news in 2008 was that G. Bush bought a house in Dallas. Iíll be f-bombing the SOB for the next few years. If you hear some guy yelling, F you at Bush, thatíll be me.
On Rodney Burris: appointed to the Senate by Blagojevich. Why would anyone ruin their good name by accepting an appointment by a governor accused of crimes? This man has tainted his name for ever. The only thing that can be concluded is Rodney Burris doesnít have a good name.
On the Sixty year Muslim Israel war: Well, its active again, itíll stay active till both sides run low on ammo, then another cease fire will be put in place and both sides will reload and get ready for the next battle. Israel should be allowed to kill or push out every single Muslim living in the Gaza Strip. The majority of people living in the strip have no jobs, no education, no food, and they exist only to kill Jews. The population in the strip is not a viable population, without massive food aid they would starve, without massive health care aid, they would not have any health care, without massive economic aid, they would not have access to any goods. When people lose the ability to function as a viable population, they should be allowed to disintegrate.
On Muslims: for weeks before Israel struck back, Muslims were attacking Israel with mortars and rockets. Not one single Muslim protested. Itís as if mortaring Israel is a Muslin birth right. Yet the second Israel defended itself, Muslim protested worldwide. That is the weakness of Muslims. They are for hate, for Genocide, and for the destruction of Israel. Their hate will lead to their own demise.
On the wealthy: Iím not against wealth, although at times it may seem like Iím against wealth. Greed is okay, uncontrolled greed is fatal, money is good, and competition is good. Iím against pathetically arrogant little rich people. Iím against massive market manipulation. Iím against the ďanything goes mentally.Ē The wealthy has always been the heart and soul of America. Itís where we find leadership and direction. But the wealthy in America are filled with uncontrolled greed; they have led us down the wrong path, nearly into chaos.
On Bernard Madoffís victims: you pathetic, greedy little people. Go get a job at Wal-Mart.
On 2009: The next year may be the hardest in American history. America will survive; the only question is how low, will our lifestyle dip, while we pay for the excesses of our business leaders, our financial leaders and our political leaders?
