How Cold Is Planet Earth Getting? Ask The Sun

December 20, 2010

For sure the warmists have no clue.

You can hide the heat, but faking the cold and snow, not going to work. People don’t pay close enough attention to the weather to see the shenanigans with the hot side — But freeze their junk and they notice.

Australia’s summer interrupted by snow — Bitter summer freeze bites eastern states as summer gives way to snow and cold. Remember, down-under it’s like “June” in the northern hemisphere.

And here I bet you thought the cold was only where it was supposed to be winter.


Big Pharma Shrugs

December 20, 2010

Mandated price reductions produce mandated drug scarcity. Who could have seen that one coming?

There once was a baker who made delicious pies.

Then the government came, and ordered him to sell his pies for less.

While he used to get up at dawn, to bake his lovely pies, he now slept in.

He began getting up later and later and then just slapped the pies together, who cares, they are free.

And then the pies became half baked, as the government answered the cries for better and more pies.

And then they were government ordered “free pies” for all, to hide their half baked quality.

The baker had had enough, no more pies, I quit said the baker.

… the government came and ordered him to bake pies, he said no again, so the government shot him outside his bakery.

Then the government asked, who wants to bake pies?

… or for that matter make drugs.

Constitutional Lessons For Dummies

December 18, 2010

You know, things like the Federal Government cannot force people to buy health insurance they don’t want, little things like that.

From a disapproving Politico:

Fulfilling one of their most prominent campaign promises, House Republican leaders have unveiled a new rule to require that each bill filed in the House “cite its specific constitutional authority.”

And for those who may have skipped that constitutional law class, Republicans have organized four staff briefings prior to the Jan. 5 start of the 112th Congress to provide guidance on compliance with the new rule. The first session will be Monday at 1 p.m. in the Capitol Visitor Center.

GOP leaders have prepared a memo for all members of the new Congress and senior staff informing them that no bill may be introduced unless the sponsor has submitted for the Congressional Record a statement “citing as specifically as practicable the power or powers granted to Congress” to enact the measure. The memo included five examples of forms that sponsors could include with their legislation.


Now Just Go Home

December 17, 2010

Democrats controlling the Senate have abandoned a 1,924-page catchall spending measure that’s laced with homestate pet projects known as earmarks and that would have provided another $158 billion for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Nevada Democrat Harry Reid gave up on the nearly $1.3 trillion bill after several (nine) Republicans who had been thinking of voting for the bill pulled back their support.

GOP leader Mitch McConnell threw his weight against the bill in recent days, saying it was in his words “unbelievable” that Democrats would try to muscle through in just a few days legislation that usually takes months to debate.

Reid said he would work with McConnell to produce a short-term funding bill to keep the government running into early next year.

The top Senate Republican has offered a one-page bill to prevent a government shutdown on Saturday as an alternative to a 1,924-page catchall spending measure offered by Democrats.

Go home, we don’t want your ‘enabling act’ con-con anymore, and take your Obama-Communism with you. Try and do one thing positive for America, while you still have your 13% approval.

Epilogue: TEA PARTY POWER to the people.


Texas Tea Party On Fire

December 16, 2010

The Lake Fork Tea Party Patriots have a great write-up on the events here.


The Tricks Of Last Year’s Democrats

December 16, 2010

At the urging of the tea party folks, why not just do a clean unencumbered continuing resolution, just extend the current spending for a few months, and wait until next year to detail the spending. We have had enough of the tricks, it’s all so transparent, even though you think you hide it so well.

“Republicans and Democrats Pledge to Read 1,924-Page Omnibus Spending Bill Before Vote” — note the Democrats joining in, as 2012 just isn’t that far away. And the likelihood of the tea party forgetting is zero — I can see 2012 from my window, can you???

By law, it was the duty of the Democrat majority to supply a budget and get it passed before October 1, 2010. But obviously they did not want the people to know the plan and the spending before the election, did they.

Since Democrats had all year to do what they wanted, instead they opted to delay until after the 2010 election, and before the new Congress is seated, then lard the spending up with everything they could think of, sadly driving the debt up higher and higher. Why allow it to happen now. There are now over 6,000 earmarks, including 48 BILLION for inner city bribes. Yes you read that right, just another reparations package.

BUT — Think what we could get for the carbon credits if we just bulldozed the inner cities, these liberal welfare plantations, and sold the carbon credits. What’s the rush?

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has adopted precisely the approach to fiscal 2011 appropriations.

From his press release:

“Today I’m introducing this: a clean, one-page continuing resolution that keeps government funded through February 18th at current spending levels. Once the new Congress is sworn in, we’ll have a chance to pass a less expensive bill free of wasteful spending.” — Sen McConnell said.

There is no reason why Democrats, having failed to pass a budget or fund the government for next year, should now be allowed to lock in their spending priorities until next October.

Prove the new and improved Republicans are not just the same as last year’s Democrats. Make our day.


A Temporary Solution For America’s Future

December 16, 2010

As the government tries to coral people, people react to realities. Filling employment needs with temporary workers, to avoid the unknowns of health care costs. Hah, the people are always smarter and quicker acting than the ponderous behemoth Obowma government.

A Recovery Like No Other

The explanation behind temporary job creation is pretty simple: uncertainty. Companies don’t want to make longer-term commitments if they don’t know what the next couple of years will look like. New regulations are being imposed on companies, be it health care, finance, the environment, and the other areas. And the exact form and extent of these regulations still have to be determined by regulators. Many small companies don’t even know what tax rates they will face after the beginning of the year. Neither the president nor the Democratically controlled congress attempted to prevent income tax rates from rising for even the middle class until just a few weeks before they were expected to rise.

President Obama’s stimulus and regulations have created much of today’s unemployment by moving around trillions of dollars in the economy and moving around the jobs that are associated with that money. People haven’t instantly moved from one job to another.

A temp job recovery, because these contract workers can be dismissed at any time, with no costs.

 

 

 


Florida: 20 States Lawsuit Will Go Forward …

December 16, 2010

A federal judge in Florida will start hearing arguments Thursday in the latest legal challenge to the constitutionality of a key provision of the nation’s new health-care reform law — that nearly all Americans must carry health insurance or face a financial penalty. The Federal Government’s dismissal motion was denied.

On Monday, a federal judge in Virginia sided with that state’s attorney general, who contended that the insurance mandate violated the Constitution, making it the first successful challenge to the legislation.

The dispute over the constitutionality of the insurance mandate is similar to the arguments in about two dozen health-care reform lawsuits that have been filed across the country. Besides the Virginia case, two federal judges have upheld the law and 12 other cases have been dismissed on technicalities, according to Politico.com.

What makes the Florida case different is that the lawsuit has been filed on behalf of 20 states. It’s also the first court challenge to the new law’s requirement that Medicaid be expanded to cover Americans with incomes at or below 133 percent of the federal poverty level (about $14,000 in 2010 for someone living alone). That Medicaid expansion has unleashed a series of protests from some states that contend the expansion will overwhelm their already-overburdened budgets, ABC News reported.


Latest Poll: Only 23% Say Country Headed In Right Direction

December 16, 2010

Continuing the theme, communism is not popular, looks like we are down to liberals and progressives only. The rest of the people know something is wrong, with Obammunism.

(Rasmussen)- Just 23% of Likely U.S. Voters now say the country is heading in the right direction, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey taken the week ending Sunday, December 12. Down three points from last week, it’s the most pessimistic finding since January 2009.

Confidence that the country is moving in the right direction is down to 42% among Democrats from 59% the week before Election Day.

Among all voters, confidence in the nation’s current course had been hovering around the 30% mark since last November except for a brief burst of enthusiasm, largely among Democratic voters, just after Congress’ passage of the national health care bill in late March.

Seventy percent (71%) of voters say the country now is heading down the wrong track, the highest level found since March. Following passage of the health care bill, this number fell slightly but has since returned to levels found prior to the passage of the bill.

Forty-nine percent (49%) of those in President Obama’s party feel the country is on the wrong track.  Eighty-nine percent (89%) of Republicans and 76% of voters not affiliated with either political party agree.

And yet, the liberals continue spending other people’s money like it’s a bottomless pit. Hey liberals, there has been no society in human history that has made socialism work … it’s only how many people had to die before total failure.
