After my monthly meeting with local conservatives ended, I took a look at the new proposed budget by the Deficit -in-Chief and once again, SOP! There seems to be no reality when Obama is spending other peoples money, errr, should I say, compiling debt other people will pay? Yeah, there I got it. Even with 535 men and women in Congress, it appears to me a case of mass hysteria is prevalent and incurable.
What is it Obama and his minions are trying to accomplish? He is spending four billion dollars a day just in DEBT! Why would he do this? Why would Congress allow this? I am totally perplexed. Do they all know something we don't? I must say, the personal fear politicians have of being blamed for something bad (and they appear to think Americans will rebel and toss them out if they don't spend all this debt) trumps reality. Is it better to keep spending our great country into oblivion and send everyone to the poorhouse? Apparently so. The political class measures their personal electability by voting for a balanced budget with their electability to spend trillions in debt our great, great, great grandchildren won't even be able to pay back. They seem to not care. Why?
I listen to all the bloviating coming from Washington but things don't change. I was hoping there would be a daily press conference by the leaders I respect. I wanted them to state every day they would be proposing a single year balanced budget, a real one, not some phony smoke and mirrors we seem to get every time. Heck, my people even seemed to cave real fast on the so-called "payroll tax" reduction. I think they need to call it what it really is, a theft of social security money that shortchanges the elderly! Ah, those "big brother" think-speak words. You gotta love them!
It is the "pay me now or pay me later" philosophy. Wimpy from the Popeye cartoons had nothing on Obama. The democrats in the US Senate, led by Harry Reid, have stalled all the progressive bills to begin fixing the mess. At last count, 26 House passed bills were siting in the Senate round-file in Reid's office. I thought these people swore to uphold the Constitution and their main job, allocating the people's money, was their first and foremost duty! I think that Reid is undermining the security of the United State and should remove himself for treasonous behaviour. By refusing to do his job, bring forth bills to be voted on, up or down, he is breaking his oath and should resign.
There are many Republicans trying to do the right thing though. Our Congressman Tom McClintock is one of them. Paul Ryan and California's Darrel Issa are two more. Many of the folks who won in November 2010 are trying too. In our state we have Dan Logue and Doug LaMalfa doing their best to bring reality to the Sacramento circus under the dome.The country has been at risk and it is getting worse each day as China buys our daily four billion.
We discussed this topic and others as conservatives seem to be the only people concerned witht he debt and deficits. We would fix it all in one year.
I rememebr Arnold, our Governator, complaining about the deficits here yet he had the "blue pencil" and could have single handily vbalance the budget the Legislature sent him. He didn't do it of course and once again, words were hollow. Action speaks louder than words and Americans are fed up with the words, promises never realized. We want action and we want it now.
