If it’s Friday…

it’s Talking Points with the Founding Fathers…

As you know, this patriot is a radical.  This patriot could care less who he upsets if a point is made on how Congress, state, and local politicians spend our money.  And you can bank on this:  I will stay true to the words I have written.

Therefore, as for the talking points this week…OH MY GOD THEY HATE US!

How else can you describe the current Congressional stiffs and they way they are acting on extending the Bush Administration taxcuts to prevent a massive tax increase?  Don’t forget good old Bobby Etheridge, who rode around Lee county saying he gets up every morning thinking about you and me, is still there.   

But seriously, if you patriots use just a small part of your brain and logically think about what they are doing, you’ll get it.  This will be an extension.  No one is getting a cut.  We just won’t be getting a tax increase.  I cannot afford a raise in taxes – no where – not in property, sales, payroll – absolutely nowhere! Their arrogance, their defiance, their absolute hate for you and me is sickening.  They do not want America to prosper.  They do not want YOU to prosper.  They want us as servants and until Nov. 2, they were pretty close to getting their wishes.  Bunch of elitists!

Congress is playing the race card when they try to pit the haves against the have-nots. Instead of lifting people out of poverty by providing less regulation, less spending, and staying within their  budget (if they bother to even pass one), the Dems instead demonize the “rich”.  They’ve been so successful that I’m not too sure we’ll ever  be able to penetrate the minds of society so they see the truth anymore. It is the rich who produces jobs.  Not the government.  Not your trusty city councilman or commissioner or mayor.  Not your State House representative or Governor.  It is you.  And in America, you really don’t have to be rich to create wealth.  That’s the beauty of the country we live in – I can be my own boss with a good idea of a product of service that people want. 

Why can’t people see this?  Why can’t our public schools teach true economics to our kids and what “trickle down economics” simply means?  I’ve got that answer.  Because the left along with the unions realize the way they grow is to keep you from growing in knowledge and prosperity.  The longer they beat us down, the weaker we become.  Until one day, we just give up.  Need proof?  Look at Germany. Look at the fighting in London.  It’s ignorance on its best display.  This can happen here. 

My friend, Benjamin, was brilliant.  When he made the statement, “It’s a republic, if you can keep it”, he knew it would be tough.  Almost impossible!  Societies that are spoon fed cannot survive. 

Promise me you will not let this happen.  Promise yourself to never give up fighting for America.  She’s worth it.

    The Republic was shattered by the so called War between the States. States Rights lost big time! Every war since then has brought further reductions in our liberty. Things were given up to win the wars and never restored when the war was over.
    I include the non military wars such as the War on Proverty, the War on Drugs, and the War on Terror. I won’t go into the details, everone should know them.
    Now we can be ‘felt up’ for weapons when stopped on the highway, funny how those searches manage to find tiny little pills when no weapon is that small. The sign from a trained animal is considered to be reasonable cause for a search. Funny, people are willing to be felt up or have porn pictures made for the right to board an aircraft. Many useful chemicals are unavailable (like effective cold meds) because they MIGHT be used to make drugs or even weapons of mass destruction. Is there any Liberty that will not be traded for the false promise of Security? Frankly even with some recent small gains I feel that America will never again be as great as it once was. This Goose honks in mourning for her. H O N K !t

    I’m afraid you’re right, Goose. But I will continue to try to keep the torch burning for as long as I live and to have hope. Thank you for your comments.

  3. Pardon me if I stake a contrarian claim here. I’m in that kind of mood today.

    It’s my fervent hope and belief the debacle playing out in Washington this week and last is pure theater rather than the mature, responsible legislative discourse we should expect of our Congress. Let’s pray the 112th Congress displays a significantly higher degree of professionalism!

    In the end, a 2-year extension of the present tax rates will be passed into law. The Defense Department’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy will continue to hover in limbo (waiting on the 112th Congress to use it for a bargaining chip in trade for something else they need). The DREAM Act will remain a nightmare no true conservative will embrace. (It too will die a slow death.) Cap and trade finally will get its last rites. Conservatives will begin reversing the cancerous effects of Obamacare. But most importantly, the 112th Congress will begin reform of our out-of-control federal spending on entitlement programs. These legislators will promote and encourage small business expansion and innovation in the USA and we’ll begin to see meaningful evidence of growth and rising employment by late summer or fall 2011.

    That’s what I see coming. You can too. Just look past all the muckraking and posturing going on these next few days. McConnell, Boehner, and their crews have things pretty well in hand for the moment.

    I might would accept that Mr. Madison except that I just read an article in Saturday’s Sanford Herald – Commissioners approve 10K raise for county manager

    So let me get this straight: County manager makes $132,000. Gets a $10,000 bonus because it’s difficult to make ends meet with 2 houses. Can’t afford to lose him?

    Don’t get me wrong: Creating one’s wealth is the American way when government isn’t involved. For this, it is happening with my tax dollars.

    Recap: Medium income in Lee County: $55,200 (2008 figures)
    Unemployment: Hovers around 11%

    How many other valuable employees do we have in Lee County? Seems we can’t afford to lose anymore taxpayers either.

    I said in previous posts: We shall hold our elected officials accountable.

    You know what this makes me think? If we find out these tidbits in a “down” economic time, OMG – what has been done in an uptick time?

    PH you aren’t happy that the chief financial planner for Lee County couldn’t read the housing market in July 2007? Neither am I. Evidently he seems to think his skills are in high demand in the job market now and I wonder about that too. Frankly this cynic’s read of that story is that the new BOC were convinced that the man needed a bonus to have to put up with a bunch of conservatives so they ‘threw him a bone’ in hopes that he will be more cooperative in their near impossible task of cutting back on spending without cutting services in the budgets coming up. I expect he has resumes out all over in any place that he can think of. Of course I am disappointed in the BOC but I have some hope that they knew what they were doing, and it may be a wise investment of what amounts to petty cash. Besides it is the wrong time for this Goose to head north. HONK!

    Now,Goose you just made my day! You made me laugh!

  7. Goose says:

    I have been told that I have a twisted sense of humor but I must ask, were you laughing AT me or WITH me? The thing about being a Goose is that there are two points of view available. I can soar overhead and get a bird’s eye view, but when on the ground I am about level with people’s crotch or maybe billfold level if I really stick my neck out. These two levels make for some interesting contrasts which sometimes appear in my comments, which are the ‘nuggets’ that I leave in passing.
