Would the last American with money please turn out the lights?
How much longer is this insanity going to last? I keep thinking I am going to wake up from a nightmare in which we did not elect Barack Obama President. A nightmare in which Nancy Pelosi is not sitting there, cackling, “I’ll tax you and your little dog too!”
Every day, there is new and insane spending. The latest, Secretary of State Clinton has promised that we will spend $2,800,000,000.00 for the reconstruction of Gaza. (That’s 2.8 billion for those who don’t want to count the zeros!)
My father spent 28 years in the Air Force. From him I learned many creative, unique and very obscene ways to express my displeasure. Every day, I feel like using more of them!
$2.8 billion, not only for reconstruction of Gaza but to bring HAMAS refugees from Gaza to America. Hello??? Hamas is an international terrorist organization. What are we doing importing terrorists to this country?
And, why are we rebuilding Gaza? Two points of interest to emphasize this. First, the Israelis pounded the living crap out of Gaza because Hamas was using Gaza to shoot rockets into Israel and kill hundreds of it’s citizens. They are the architects of their own problems. Why are we paying to clean them up? Second, does anyone remember 9/11? One of my most vivid memories of that day is the people in Gaza cheering the attacks on the twin towers and the death of Americans. These people cheered the death of American taxpayers and now American taxpayers are bailing them out? Is it just me, or in the immortal word of Lloyd Bridges, “Did I pick the wrong week to quit sniffing glue?”
Last week, Obama introduced a $3,600,000,000,000.00 budget. (Again, that’s $3.6 trillion). That comes out to $25,000 for every man, woman and child in America. In my home state of Tennessee, the average single family income is…. $25,000. In the 90’s, we used to joke about the new 1040CLINTON tax form. It was pretty simple. Line one, you put your total income. There was no line two. You mailed line one to the IRS.
Suddenly, that’s not a joke anymore.
