The Cal Ripken President

A must read from Ann Coulter: The Cal Ripken President

Here are some notable quotes:

"As with the Clintons, Obama so earnestly believes in public school education that he sends his girls to ... an expensive private school. He demands that taxpayers support the very public schoolteachers he won't trust with his own children."

"Federal meddling in education has been an abject failure, so the Democrats' plan is to keep doing more of the same. If only there were some aphorism about people who fail to learn from history -- oh, well!"

The big bail out

Young Chuck in Montana bought a horse from a farmer for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day. The next day he drove up and said, "Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the horse died." Chuck replied, "Well, then just give me my money back." The farmer said, "Can't do that. I went and spent it already." Chuck said, "Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse." The farmer asked, "What ya gonna do with him?" Chuck said, "I'm going to raffle him off." The farmer said, "'You can't raffle off a dead horse!" Chuck said, "Sure I can, Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he's dead."

A month later, the farmer met up with Chuck and asked, "What happened with that dead horse?" Chuck said, "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars a piece and made a profit of $998." The farmer said, "Didn't anyone complain?" Chuck said, "Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back."

Chuck grew up and works now for the government. He was the one who figured out how to "bail us out".

500 Million Americans a month to lose their jobs...

Straight from the Speaker's mouth:

Since there are only 305,831,640 people in the US (, how can we possibly lose 500,000,000 jobs a month? Since she appears to have said this on our before January 24th, 2009, doesn't that mean that as of February 11th, 2009 all of the jobs are gone now? What are we to do?


Change is good?

So, exactly what is Obama changing?

CPSIA - The De-stimulus program

It appears that I'm little late in finding out about this one. It appears that back in August 2008 Congress passed the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008. This was sponsored by Illinois Congressman Bobby Rush and quickly signed into law by President Bush.

As is more and more typical of our government representatives, their good intentions often produce bad consequences. This is a prime example of good intentions gone wrong. It also a prime example of what happens when you vote on a bill that you didn't read. And, this one is only 63 pages long (!

As of yesterday (2/10/2009), what will now be know as National Bankruptcy Day, many children's products are now illegal. Common examples include ATVs, bicycles, and motorcycles. But it certainly doesn't stop there. Everything made for children is affected. New mandatory testing requirements (don't let 'em fool on this one) make even the resale of virtually all children's products nearly impossible.

I can't imagine a better way of de-stimulating the economy... Then again, there's that $1,000,000,000,000 "stimulus" plan that promises us a new job for every $225,000 that we spend on it. Now that's deal!

Back to the issue at hand. We need to take a stand and make the CPSIA go away. I signed at least three petitions today (, (, ( Tomorrow I call the id10ts that call themselves my representatives...

Give Us A Stimulus Plan that Works

I have just signed a national grassroots-led petition opposing the
Obama/Congress trillion-dollar spending bill. This approach has
failed horribly in the past, and will most certainly cripple the
generations that follow.

In addition to opposing this spending plan, I'm urging the
President and Congress to embrace a proven method to jump-
start our economy--by cutting taxes and putting the "stimulus"
into the hands of taxpayers!

Odds and Ends

If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?
