I was stuck listening to the Barry’s I Have A Scheme speech last night; every tv in the gym was on it. When he stated that Americans are “rugged individualists.” I almost took a header off the tread mill. He has no concept what that means, and everything he has ever done, said, or been exposed to, is the complete opposite of the term. He believes that the Federal Government providing social security, and medical services equates to rugged individualism. WRONG! If it were not for these programs, all Americans would be receiving support, if needed, through churches, non-profits, service organizations, and even private donations from companies.

As I listened to the first part of Captain Job Program’s speech last night, I couldn’t help but be a teensy, weensy bit skeptical every time he
lied claimed that his new jobs plan is “already paid for,” and “won’t add a dime to the deficit.” Coming from the mouth of a man who is suspect at best – whenever his lips are moving – excuse me if I’m leery; we’ve heard it all before, dude, c’mon now.
It was just a month after his inauguration that Captain Teleprompter stood before Congress and declared: “Now is the time to jump-start job creation.” (cha-ching) Eight months – and untold billions – later, the unemployment rate had jumped nearly 25% to 10.2%.
And now? Will infrastructure construction and aid to state and local governments (to prevent layoffs of teachers and other public workers) actually create jobs? Doubtful. Hell, his last “stimulus” – at twice the money – didn’t exactly “jump-start” anything - except for the unemployment rate. And how about Captain Environment’s “green jobs” program? Abject failure. (I called Solyndra for an update, but their phones have been disconnected.)
So, let’s get back to the “already paid for,” and “won’t add a dime to the deficit” business: Did you, or did you not, call for additional deficit spending, Mr. President? Of course you did. Yeah, I know how you like to call it “investment,” but as I said at the beginning; excuse me if I’m skeptical. Here’ why:
Americans for Tax Reform has compiled a comprehensive list of the new taxes, or tax increases Captain Redistribution has signed into law since taking office.
Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell hit the nail on the head last night, saying: “This isn’t a jobs plan – it’s a re-election plan.”
And what’s wrong with that, Mitch? Obama benefactor, AFL-CIO union-thug Richard Trumka, (sitting with Mishy), thought his comrades’s speech went just fine.
Rob from the rich and give to the poor; don’t unions do that the other way around?
