Politcally Incorrect Musings
An interesting thought

from Torrey Spears' blog:

"If one good thing has come out of this finanial mess - it's that *should* Barack Obama get elected - his super-spending plans are finished. There's no money. That is, unless with an Obama Presidency and a Democrat controlled Congress - they expand our national debt into a number that hasn't even been created yet. You can also forget about Obama's 95% tax cut/rebate and economic stimulus package plans.


By comparison - McCain's tax cuts across the board is gone. McCain will have to reign in government spending, but leave taxes alone because the Feds need this money."


I tend to agree with Mr. Spears.

So if you thought that voting for Obama was going to get you more government services, you are wrong. Gone is your "universal health care", gone are your guaranteed student loans, gone gone gone. You want change? That change is the few remaining coins you have in your pocket, because that is all you'll be left with.

The bailout that none of us wanted and is being shoved down our throats will remove any "change" your candidate (pick one) wanted to make.

All you will get is more of the same: more taxes, more corruption (the bailout does NOTHING to punish the greedy), and more idiot career politicians with no clue, plan, or ethics.

Sad days, my friends. Sad indeed.

I agree for the most part. But the biggest, simplest, easiest way to bring our budgets back into real numbers and eliminate the Federal debt? Stop blowing money on stupid Pork-Belly addendums to every single bill that passes through Congress. There was a report several years ago (before the current Iraq war, so take this info with that in mind) that demonstrated we could be out of debt in 5-10 years completely if Congress (Both Reps and Dems) would stop padding the wallets of special interest groups and their constituency. Every bill that goes through the House and Senate contains between 50% and 100% of the Bills true cost in Fat added by greedy people. But of course this would mean having people in Congress that actually care more about the people they represent and less about their re-election and pocket books of greedy companies. Republican... Democrat... Irrelevant! They all do it.

Sorry... /rant

Supposedly the original bailout bill was three or four pages.

Now it is over 400!!

Everyone say "oink"!
