Democrats are so entrenched to allow some of the Bush Tax Cuts to expire for the “rich,” and preserve those tax cuts for people making less than $250,000. It needs to be reminded of the schematics or words being used. While the “rich” is define those making over $250,000, there are many who believe these are only individuals. Ironically, it is mostly small business that fits this category too. These are the business that provide and create jobs for the American people. Over-Tax this particular group and expect a prolong effect to the recession.
Bernanke said it best. Congress needs to lower spending if the Bush Tax Cuts are extended. I wonder which word Congress couldn’t comprehend (lower spending).

In the article, a small piece of information was left out. On May 10, 2010, Manny Pacquiao won a landslide Congressional victory in his country. Yes, Manny “The Pac-man” Pacquiao is a Congressman in the Philippines.
The 31-year-old boxer had aspirations to go into politics. It is what many famous people in Philippines do and that is making politics as a retirement plan. Several famous Filipino athletes and many movie stars have won public office. It is sad that these people we once admired turn into ruthless and deceptive politicians. Like any other politician, it is all about wealth and influence. Even though Congressman Pacquiao insists he just wants to help his people, we heard that tune many times before.
But that is not the intent of this blog. Manny Pacquiao is going to fight this November as a Congressman. Now, this has become an embarrassing circus. There isn’t a political leader that has a second career in a dangerous sport and at the same time. I can imagine how the fight will go if Manny’s opponent knocks him out or brutally hurts him. Will it be an international incident? How will the “secret service” of Manny Pacquiao handle the situation? I heard Congress fighting one another, but this is going a bit far.
It is important to decide where your heart lies. Is it boxing or politics? It can’t be both. Either choice, Manny Pacquiao will be a very rich man. So, Manny, pick one! Don't embarrass the Filipino people.

Well, I know that answer. It will happen when insurance companies are unable to support the overwhelming demand of claims that will bombard their offices. When anybody with pre-existing conditions cannot be refused coverage, insurance companies will either go bankrupt or increase their premiums. This is when the public option will be debated in Congress.
Also, it is disingenuous when Reid had the gall to say that Social Security is still strong and calling it going bankrupt is a lie. It is time to get rid of these bozos before they further harm America.

Duplication of services is a good way to cut wasteful spending. There are other state-funded clinics, emergency rooms, and health centers to assist low-income women meet their health needs. This $7.5 million entitlement program is a waste of tax payer’s money. If all fails, the best form of birth control is abstinence.

The bill would have provided three-quarters of the funding for homebuyers to buy a newly constructed home, but in this economic downturn, New Jersey doesn’t have the luxury wasting tax payer’s money if the state has so many foreclosed homes.
Governor Christie stated, “I was forced to cut many worthwhile programs from the fiscal year 2011 budget. ... I cannot approve legislation, no matter how meritorious, when the state simply cannot afford it.”
Supporters of tax cuts, this is not like the Bush Tax Cuts, which will expire at the end of the year. The NJ legislature claim that the stimulus would have helped bring the state out of the recession, but this is wrong. This band-aid is like the federal stimulus housing tax credit, which expired June 2010. Initially, the housing market climbed, but once the program expired, housing dropped. There is no long-term investment to this program. It is a wasted effort. Governor Christie is trying to cut spending and find ways to create jobs. If foreclosure is so high, buying a home does not create jobs. Stimulating an economy is not as simple as building a house. If people can’t afford it, these houses would be foreclosed. With unemployment nearing 10 percent, people should start saving and bring down their debt instead.

The charge: Under pressure by the GOP, Washington Ethics committee found Charlie Rangel misreported to pay taxes on rental homes he own in the Dominican Republic. Also, they have reported that the Congressman had a no-interest mortgage for more than a decade on these investment properties. Another ethics violation found Charlie Rangel used rent-stabilized apartments in NYC as his campaign office and used official congressional stationery to solicit political contributions.
The resolution: Democrat leaders forced Charlie Rangel to step down as chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee.
The behind-the-scene backdoor dealing: House Democrats wants Charlie Rangel to admit wrongdoing and make a public apology in return for a “slap” on the wrist and lose his chairmanship permanently. House Democrats are forcing Rangel to take the offer to prevent a public fiasco as it will go to trail and jeopardize the Democrat reputation in the November elections.
The agreement: Charlie Rangel refused to accept any deal. He would accept going to trail to clear his name than to admit ethic violations and derailing his re-election bid to return back to Washington.
Personally, the Democrats are willing to throw Charlie Rangel under the bus to prevent any further embarrassment to the Democrat Party. Many are encouraging that Rangel take this to trail and expose other Democrats who may be involved in this ethics violation and throw them under the bus.

On November 6, 2009, Obama said, "Now, it's important to note that the bill I signed will not add to our deficit. It is fully paid for, and so it is fiscally responsible." Therefore, signing this bill was another broken promise because Obama wouldn’t comply with the GOP request. The GOP wanted the cost of the bill be paid for government funds or by cutting some programs to pay it. The promise of the “Pay-Go” system Obama preached was another lie.

The issue is not whether she said those remarks or it was taken out of context. The issue is how the White House wouldn’t listen to her testimony before they fired her. Also, the NAACP, who held that meeting Sherrod spoke, didn’t review the tapes of that conference to know it was edited. They too should be blamed for encouraging the White House to fire Sherrod.
The apology from the White House 48 hours after the video showing Sherrod talking about her experience with a white farmer went viral made Obama look scared and in panic mode. In fact, it is not the first time Obama was in trouble with racial charges. In July 2010, Obama made a scathing comment that the D.C. police had "acted stupidly" when they arrested Harvard University scholar Henry Louis Gates, who is black, on charges he was breaking into his own home. Also more recently, the Justice Department dismissed voter intimidation charges against the New Black Panther Party, prompting criticism from conservative groups who said the black president was unwilling to prosecute fellow blacks for civil rights violations. Therefore, anything considered racial, Obama would attack it with firm resolve; whether or not the story was true.
It all shows the hypersensitivity of the Obama Administration during an election year. Obama is trigger happy to use force without due process. Also, it demonstrates how the White House is not strong enough to run this country. Hillary Clinton was right when she said during the 2008 Democrat Presidential Primary that Obama is not ready to answer the 3:00 AM phone call. This is a costly mistake among many costly mistakes this president has done during his 19 month reign as president.

If this is the road America should follow, you are naïve and sadistic. America is on unsustainable grounds that need a major overhaul. Obama took a system that had problems, but not broken, and recreated the wheel. This is what I seen during the Jimmy Carter era. I am glad this generation is seeing the same thing with Obama. It is a very expensive lesson to learn, but we do learn from our mistakes.

With Liberals claiming Obama hasn’t raised any taxes, there will be one tax that will make or break this president. The Bush tax cuts will be expiring January 2011. That will automatically raise tax revenues to $1 trillion. The death tax will come back, the AMT will affect more taxpayers, and the tax brackets will return to pre-Clinton days. Obama better renege on his promise that he wouldn’t raise taxes on people earning $200,000-$250,000 per year because everybody will be affected when the Bush tax cuts expire.

Blaming on the Republicans to have too much power as the Minority, Liberals are angered that the Democrat Majority couldn’t muster an overhaul to silence them. These types of statements are ludicrous. To call the Obama presidency a big disappointment is one thing, but to blame the root cause on the Republicans, special interest groups, and a broken system in Washington is utter nonsense.
This is the ignorance of Liberals. Thinking that a Democrat president and a Democrat Majority will change the make-up of America, Liberals are blinded that the people’s vote controls Washington D.C. A recent poll showed that 44 percent of the American people are conservative; while 20 percent are professed Liberals. I don’t think Liberals get it. They are the minority in this country.
When Obama won the election in 2008, Liberals were concerned about the economy. Liberals felt that the $800 billion stimulus bill was not big enough and felt there were too many compromises to get Republicans to support it. Honestly, the Democrat leadership made too many compromises to garner support of their own party. They held the majority and they almost couldn’t pass the bill. Once they did, the people responded. They voted a Republican Governors of NJ and Virginia and voted a Republican senator from Massachusetts in the November 2009 election and a special senatorial election in January 2010, respectively.
For Liberals to blame Republicans is another excuse that has no merit. To call a 40 Republican Senate Minority as powerful as the 60 super-majority Democrat Senate is idiotic, but that’s what Liberals believe. They believe Republicans were able to bottle neck many legislations in the Senate and made Obama a lame duck president.
Liberals are bunch of whiners looking to the social injustices that they felt it warrants revenge. Blaming the economic crash on Wall Street, Liberals are ready to lynch the CEO’s and limit the pay levels on Wall Street. If they look closer they should have lynch Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, who created the corruption with Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac and the subprime loans. But with Liberals, they are too reactionary, and it would have been inconceivable for them to see the obvious.
It is the same with Universal Healthcare. I would have thought Liberals would be more excited, but to find out, they said it took too long to pass it. Again, they are finding ways to excuse themselves not to look stupid. How can healthcare be a dire emergency than saving Social Security and Medicare? That is plain ludicrous. To my amazement, Liberals are now seeing that any entitlement program needs funding. However, when they realize it will affect them, Liberals won’t have anything of it. Sadly, this is the mindset of Liberals. They want the government to give them everything, but let someone pay for it.
This president is thin-skinned and shrouded in secrecy. His speeches are incoherent and full of rhetoric. Obviously, his inexperience is being felt by every American. In fact, the community organizer is appeasing to the enemy and alienating our friends abroad. Not surprisingly, Obama’s direction for this country has made us more confused. The economy, national debt, Universal Healthcare, higher taxes, the BP oil spill, terrorist attack, climate change, “cap and trade,” immigration reform, and the war in Afghanistan are causing the American people to have an ulcer. What this country needs is a Zantac and a new change in government.
The federal revenues to fund the big three programs (Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid) are not enough to sustain viability. The discretionary spending for the war and the other entitlement programs are being hijacked by the Chinese, who have financed our debt. The report states that it doesn’t matter if we grow our economy by double-digit. We will never grow our way out of this huge debt.
The solution to the problem is nothing new. One solution is to increase taxes, cut spending, or the combination of the two. Of course, we are at the point that taxing will be counterproductive. It is more sensible to cut spending and end some of these wasteful entitlement programs. Only taxing to solve the problem will not end the spending. End spending and it should slow down the bleeding and hopefully encourage the economy to grow. If we do see double-digit growth, it is possible to concentrate to bring down the national debt.

As a true lap dog for Obama and after he admitted Democrat would lose the House, Robert Gibbs offers the alternative consequence of a Republicans Majority. Gibbs was denigrating the GOP for favoring big oil companies and less tight restrictions on Wall Street as the basis of his assumption, which he hopes will destroy the GOP.
But the narrow-mindedness of the Democrat spokesman, Gibbs fails to state the obvious. We are in the 80-some days of the oil spill, and presently, BP has uncapped the spill to implement a stronger cap over the well, which won’t be completed in several days. If Obama is directing the fix, he hasn’t done a good about it. In regard to Wall Street, the two writers of the reform bill (Barney Frank and Chris Dodds) were involved in the original downfall of Wall Street with Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac and the subprime loan.
Using the same idea done in the 2008 elections, it’s time for a new change because Democrats are screwing up this country. As I have said many times, your mistake to put the Democrats in power is your own doing. Put the Democrats back in November 2010, and continue to suffer your stupidity.

A Wall Street Journal analysis of employment trends in 11
countries suggests that manageable debt burdens and healthy banking systems—areas in which the U.S. doesn't excel—are proving to be crucial factors in creating jobs.
By contrast, total employment in the U.S. in June was down
4.8% from December 2007. Businesses have been reluctant to hire amid
difficulties getting loans from financially wounded banks and uncertainty about how long it will take consumers—a key driver of the U.S. economy—to pare down their large debt loads.
As of March, U.S. household debt stood at 122% of disposable income, down from a peak of 131% in early 2008 but still well above the 100% economists tend to see as sustainable.
We are not out of the woods yet. Even though the recession has made people saved and bring down their debt, it is not enough. If people dont spend, we cannot get out of this crisis. If business are not hiring, people won't be spending. While we are suffering, Obama is on vacation. It is Nero playing the violin as he watches Rome burn.

Since the recession started 2 years ago, there are close to 8 million jobs lost. The Obama government spent foolishly to create jobs, but that is just a folly. Government is not in the business to create jobs; its job is to spend our money. Obama has spent at least three stimulus bills to fix it, but each of them failed to produce any permanent jobs. According to the US Labor Department, of the 8 million jobs lost, close to 5 million people were jobless for more than a year.
But as Mr. Optimist, Obama brags how the job growth in the private sector is growing for sixth straight months. What Obama is not telling us is that as he lost 4 million jobs for the first six months of last year, he created only 600,000 private sector jobs this year. This is nothing to brag about.

When NJ Governor Chris Christie announced he will privatize the DMV inspection center, States Parks, Psychiatric hospitals, Pre-school classrooms, and toll booths, I must send kudos to the governor. This would save $210 million a year of wasteful spending. First and foremost, the governor will privatize the auto inspection centers as his highest priority and then implement the other sectors of the economy.
In some states, auto inspections have always been owner-paid. They usually pay about 20 to 30 bucks and the service is quick and easy. Many auto shops also have inspection services, some gas stations and most oil-change shops do inspections, and there is plenty of privately owned little "inspection stations" around that are clean, quick, courteous and reasonably priced.
Small business is the lifeblood of the U.S. and this type would provide a lot of jobs in N.J. For those government workers going to get laid-off, they can always work in the private sector where jobs will be in demand. New Jersey is a beautiful state going bankrupt. This governor is biting the bullet and he has no other choice. It is a promise he had made to the constituents of New Jersey. The huge spending from the former governor is crippling the economy of the Garden State. At least, this governor has set his eyes to fix the mess and get NJ back in the black.

The department abandoned the New Black Panther case last year. It stemmed from an incident on Election Day in 2008 in Philadelphia, where members of the party were videotaped in front of a polling place, dressed in military-style uniforms and allegedly hurling racial slurs while one brandished a night stick.
The Bush Justice Department brought the first case against three members of the group, accusing them in a civil complaint of violating the Voter Rights Act. The Obama administration initially pursued the case, winning a default judgment in federal court in April 2009 when the Black Panther members did not appear in court. But then the administration moved to dismiss the charges the following month after getting one of the New Black Panther members to agree to not carry a "deadly weapon" near a polling place until 2012.
In a statement Tuesday, a Justice spokesman said the civil rights division determined "the facts and the law did not support pursuing claims" against the two other defendants and denied Adams' allegations.
If feel that if it was the KKK instead of the Black Panthers, it would be a whole different story because reverse racism is alive and well in America.

Supporter for immigration reform claim on a 2008 study that found illegal immigration was actually helping to grow the American economy. The Perrymaan report estimated that illegal immigrants add $245 billion in Gross Domestic Product to the economy and account for 2.8 million jobs. But the fact remains, two wrongs does not make a right. If it is okay to break the law, then it is okay to use vigilantes to help law enforcement stop a growing crime rate in America. Lets include that many states are going bankrupt because they are unable to sustain the cost from these illegal aliens. Honestly, the Perryman report is totally bogus. The money earned by these illegals are sent back to their motherland, and working below minimum wage, it seems unrealistic that $245 billion was pumped into the economy.
It is time to give these illegal aliens a one way ticket to where ever they came from.
