Atta boy, Congressman!



Simple, straightforward and on point...Answers don't lie in Washington.

From everything I am hearing and everything I have seen, the Republicans are standing tall, proud and finally are fighting back.

Even some in the media are grudgingly acknowledging this fact:

CNN’s DAVID GERGEN: “The folks in the White House just must be kicking themselves right now. They thought that coming out of Baltimore when the President went in and was mesmerizing and commanding in front of the House Republicans that he could do that again here today. That would revive health care and would change the public opinion about their health care bill and they can go on to victory. Just the opposite has happened.” (CNN’s “Live,” 2/25/10)

You don't say...Democrats

He is Jimmy Carter II

Price controls?

This is the Obama healthcare plan?

Jimmy Carter tried this in the 1970's which created a massive shortage in oil and natural gas. Things got so bad that only weeks before his re-election bid, he immediately began deregulating the gas and oil industry trying to drive the price of gas down. There were fist fights at the gas pumps with people who had waited hours just to get a few gallons of gasoline.

Do we want fist fights with people desperately waiting to see a doctor?

This is the new path Obama plans on taking us down?

Do we really want to create a massive shortage in health care?

I swear, this new president looks more and more like Jimmy Carter ever day.

Congressman Paul Ryan in Newsweek

Nice article from Congressman Paul Ryan.

Imagine your family's finances if you spent and borrowed like Washington: you'd owe $60 in credit-card loans for every $100 of income. Every month you'd pay back a little but borrow even more. In 10 years, you'd owe $87 for every $100 you made. At some point you'd hand off the debt to your kids. If they worked until 2035, they'd owe more than $180 for every $100 they earned. In 2050, your grandkids would owe more than $320. By 2080 they'd owe seven times their earnings. Of course, lenders would cut them off well before then, and your family would be ruined. But this is the path your government is on right now.

Today, our country faces a fiscal meltdown—and Washington's continued cowardice is a big part of the problem. The social-insurance strategies of the 20th century—Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security—are driving our federal government and economy to collapse. It's long been obvious that we're ill prepared for the retirement of the baby boomers. Now, the recession and Washington's recent spending spree have accelerated the day of reckoning.

Who cares about Tiger?

Does anyone in the public really believe that Tiger owes them an apology?

I don't care who he sleeps with.

Bummer, Doyle's global warming bill is in trouble

My heart is almost breaking.

How come when a conservative makes the following statement, they are accused of being idiots and science deniers, but when a liberal makes the statement like this, it makes the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel?

Later, Senate Majority Leader Russ Decker (D-Weston) said, "I think the bill is going to need some retooling.

"I think the bill, as it is, obviously has got some problems, and I'm concerned about the impact that it would increase utility rates."

Hey, Obama tax increases are coming

Politico

President Barack Obama doubled-down this year on his campaign pledge to roll back the Bush-era tax cuts for the richest Americans while keeping them in place for the middle class.


What? President Bush gave tax cuts to middle class Americans?

But I thought evil Bush only gave tax cuts to the wealthy?

President Bush would have been pillared

President Bush would have been pillared if his administration was caught defending this practice...

Two years ago, when the FBI was stymied by a band of armed robbers known as the "Scarecrow Bandits" that had robbed more than 20 Texas banks, it came up with a novel method of locating the thieves.

FBI agents obtained logs from mobile phone companies corresponding to what their cellular towers had recorded at the time of a dozen different bank robberies in the Dallas area. The voluminous records showed that two phones had made calls around the time of all 12 heists, and that those phones belonged to men named Tony Hewitt and Corey Duffey. A jury eventually convicted the duo of multiple bank robbery and weapons charges.

Even though police are tapping into the locations of mobile phones thousands of times a year, the legal ground rules remain unclear, and federal privacy laws written a generation ago are ambiguous at best. On Friday, the first federal appeals court to consider the topic will hear oral arguments (PDF) in a case that could establish new standards for locating wireless devices.

In that case, the Obama administration has argued that warrantless tracking is permitted because Americans enjoy no "reasonable expectation of privacy" in their--or at least their cell phones'--whereabouts. U.S. Department of Justice lawyers say that "a customer's Fourth Amendment rights are not violated when the phone company reveals to the government its own records" that show where a mobile device placed and received calls.


Screeching and wailing would be heard on Capital Hill against President Bush from the left. Can you imagine the Bush administration stating "Americans enjoy no "reasonable expectation of privacy"?

Oh boy!

Where are you Senator Russ Feingold?

Congressman Paul Ryan rules out Presidential run in 2012

Anyone who knows the congressman pretty much knew this already. However, the Congressman also is looking towards 2012 and taking on Senator Herb Kohl.

Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan (R) said over the weekend that he will not run for president in 2012.

However, while Ryan has ruled out a national bid, he is still considering running for statewide office in two years. In an interview with RealClearPolitics last week, Ryan said he may run for Senate in 2012, when Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wisc.) -- who just turned 75 -- will be up for re-election.

Do they realize how foolish they look?

Seriously, This is the ad that NOW was in complete hysterics over?



Pro abortion groups were coming unhinged for weeks, demanding that the ad be yanked. It was an attack on a woman's right to have an abortion they screeched! Literally millions of Americans were demanding the ad be removed.

How ridiculous do these people look today?

Good grief!

How many jobs lost or not created because of stimulus?

Billions upon billions of dollars have been pulled out of today's current private market place and tomorrow's private market place and has been placed into the government's wasteful hands. Exactly how many private jobs have not been created because of government largess?

Steve Chapman from the Chicago Tribune wants to know:

Last week's official report that the effort created 600,000 jobs certainly didn't prove anything. All the government did was count how many jobs were paid for with stimulus funds.

That ignores the obvious problem. Money the government uses to create jobs is money that can't be used by the private sector to create jobs. But no one in the White House is trying to count jobs that didn't get created as a result of this mass diversion of funds.


Since the Obama administration makes up their own numbers, I say we should be able to make up our own also. So what do you think?

Has the private sector not been able to create or save 2,000,000 jobs because the debt mounted by the Obama administration?

Did anyone notice? $787 billion stimulus

The media has been rather silent on this issue. Remember that $787 Billion stimulus bill? Yeah, it is now $862 Billion.

Another $75 Billion. You would think the media would be rejoicing at the "extra" money to create jobs. After all, the original stimulus was to create jobs.
