Tom Daschle May or May Not have had some "Tax Problems"

I am beginning to think that all of Obama's appointments have either been in the Clinton White House or are involved in some shady and corrupt scandals. The latest falls into the later category. Former South Dakota Senator Tom Daschle is tapped to be the new Head of Department of Health and Human Services. And they have openly admitted they are aware he may have some "tax issues". It is reported that he failed to report $$128,203 in back taxes and $11,964 in interest, car service totaling more than $250,000, and also unreported consulting income of $88,333, in 2007. Well, let me tell you, when I don't pay my taxes, the government doesn't call it "tax issues" they call it failure to pay taxes and I get in trouble. In this case, it gets Daschle appointed head of Dept. of Health and Human Services. Funny how that works isn't it? How can be be the right man for the job when he is taking money fist over hand from speaking engagements at health care companies that would benefit from his appointment?

This isn't the first loon with "tax issues". Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, recently appointed by Obama failed to pay almost 35K in taxes as a result of what he called a "careless" error. Hasn't anyone heard of HR Block? Wow these people are either crooked or stupid. Well, in this case they could be both. If he keeps appointing idiots who go on to say stupid things, then I am going to run out of time in the day to write about them!

What's Good for the Goose???

Isn't that the saying? What's good for the goose is good for the gander? Which basically means if your president urges you to keep your heat low to conserve energy and save the planet then you would expect him to do so as well. Especially since our tax dollars are paying that electric bill. Well with Obama we have learned that he is the second coming, can walk on water, cure cancer and gets cold very easy.

Well apparently, Mr. President may want us to keep our thermostats down to save the planet and conserve energy but he gets a free pass because he is from Hawaii?? This week, his senior adviser, David Axelrod, was asked about the temperature in the White House and he didn't even bother to spin it. He said,

“He’s from Hawaii, O.K.?” “He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there.” Now is that a slap in the face to all Americans or what? So what if he is from Hawaii? "

He was a Senator from Chicago, a city notorious for cold blistery winters. Where is the outrage? Where is Al Gore when you need him??

This is the double standard I was talking about before he was elected. If this were Bush, the tree huggers would be launching a full attack on the White House with demonstrations and somehow the ACLU would get called in and then Al Sharpton would show up and it would be a national headline. Every American would lash out for having to make such sacrifices when he did not. Well this isn't Bush anymore and we see this is the start to a long four years of excuses and get out of jail free cards. I wonder how long the public will stand for this type of hypocrisy at its finest? If you tell us what how to conserve then you damn well better get out your sweater Mr. Obama cause if I am freezing, you are going to freeze too!

In one more rant about double standards let's look at two similar scenarios. When Bush was in a foreign country and was locked out and couldn't get through the door and this week when Obama mistook a window for a door. The difference is the press. Bush was a laughingstock and made fun of. Obama's mishap was endearing and he got a pass cause "he's the new guy". IF anyone tries to tell me there is no media bias, then I will scream. It is such a double standard that it's not even funny. The American people aren't stupid. Hopefully their eyes will open to what's really happening in Washington and wont make the same mistake in 2012!

Nancy Pelosi is an Idiot

Every now and then God smiles down upon us and leaves us something behind to remind us of his glory. In this case, it's video of Nancy Pelosi being an idiot while trying to explain away why $345 MILLION with a M out of the stimulus package that is going to ruin America, is going to be allocated to prevention of STD's. I didn't know that preventing the clap was the answer to our country's immediate financial crisis.

$150 million is going to honey bee insurance. I cant wait to hear her take on that one!!!!

Here Comes the Acid Trip Again!

Ever have one of those dreams where you are trying to tell someone something important and for some reason they cant/wont hear you. And if they do not hear your warning then it will mean something terrible will happen? OK, that's how I feel about President Obama's stimulus bill. It is the most absurd and wasteful bill I have ever seen. Well I am sure that I could conjure up some others, but for the time being this is #1. Lets take a look at our tax dollars hard at work shall we?

In the 819 BILLION dollars he wants to spend, he has allocated funds for areas which will not immediately stimulate the economy. I am all for education and the environment and even prevention of STD's, but don't try to pull the wool over my eyes Obama! If this is a stimulus package that is supposed to rev up the economy, then make it so. Don't add things like polar ice caps research and carbon footprint recording! None of which are going to help me make my house payment or save my job! Dont disguise big government spending as relief. If you are pushing it through the House so the money can get out as fast as possible, then why spend it on programs over periods of years? Thats not relief. Thats called wasteful spending on another agenda.

$355 BILLION of the money isnt even going to be used until after the fiscal year 2010! How is that going to help us now???? I am not saying infrastructure, education reform and enviornmental research and protection aren't important but should be in a seperate bill. If you are going to stimulate the economy NOW, then use the money to stimulate the economy NOW! Our nation is on the brink of ruin and we cant really afford to funding some tree huggers right now. $345 Million is allocated to prevention of STD's. Thank you Obama, because I didnt realize that the root of this IMMEDIATE financial crisis was the clap! That will surely jump start the economy once all STD's are erradicated!!! I hope I live to see the day!!!! $150 MILLION is going to the honey bee insurance. Now thats one I cant understand at all. I cant wait to hear Pelosi explain that one.

Seems to me somewhere Bobby Jindal and Sara Palin are sitting back thinking about how the phrase "I told you so" fits onto a campaign button!

Thank Goodness I watch TV!!!

Congratulations Mr. Obama, the first success of your administration was getting the switch from analog TV to digital TV pushed back because you feared not enough Americans would be ready. Really?!?! Well, I am not ready for another terrorist attack or global depression, what about that???!!! Who gives a crap about the TV switch. It's only been advertised about for a year now! I guess I didn't hear that part in your campaign promises about how you were going to fix the very serious problem of digital television switchover from analog. Thank you Mr. President. I can rest easy tonight.

File this Under WTF?!?!

Obama watch Day 2. The hangover is complete and he has started working. And I will be here disecting everything good and bad. I meant what I said before, about us all coming together for the greater good of the country, but I am still free to speak my mind about the president's action. As far as I can tell, my first ammendment rights havent been taken away.....yet. Give Pelosi some time though....

So this one goes in the WTF category. Obama has promised and delivered on cutting wasteful spending in Washington. Yesterday he froze salaries of those making over 100K a year pending review. Good for him. He cut wasteful spending . He then issued a reversal of a ban on federal funding for non-governmental organizations working outside the U.S. that offer abortions or abortion counseling. So I am left scratching my head on that one.

Of course the big thing is the closing of Gitmo and the ceasing of military trials for the prisoners. Let's just step back and think about this. Anyone who thought Obama would be a centrist is now flinching. He is favoring his left winged liberal roots in full glory. He is basically flicking off the families of 9/11 victims AND those of soldiers killed or wonded in the war by saying these animals have rights???? Why dont you just do the same for the American penal system too? Hell lets give rights to all the rapists, child molesters, bank robbers and terrorists. Welcome to the next four years of our lives. Bush may not have been in favor with the liberals, but at least he kept them safe. I am making sure my mace is up to date and staying away from tall buildings! Below is a break out of the grouping the adminstration wants to lump these dangerous terrorists in to:

"Administration officials indicated they do not want detainees outside of the U.S. to get habeas corpus rights or rights similar to those enjoyed by U.S. citizens. The Obama administration will likely go to Congress for what it wants to accomplish. The order will direct that all information regarding the remaining 245 detainees be consolidated in a central repository and will create a panel to review those cases and split the detainees up into three categories......

Category one is comprised of the 70 detainees that President Bush sought to repatriate but couldn't because no country wants them, and they would likely be tortured at home. The Obama administration believes they can get foreign countries to take them." WTF????? Dump terrorists into the hands of other terrorists? What kind of kool aid has he been drinking????

Category two is the group of detainees that can be prosecuted under war crimes in Article III courts — federal courts designed to address cases that involve citizens of other countries — or tried in modified military commissions. This includes Sept. 11 planner Khalid Sheikh Mohammad. The administration would seek a stay on habeas petitions in Article III courts and continuances on the ongoing military commissions.

Category three is made up of detainees who can't be released and can't be tried. The thought is to create a panel, which could turn into a national security court, to handle these future highest-value detainees to determine prospective policy since terrorists like Al Qaeda chief Usama bin Laden will continue to be caught. When the govt creates a panel, nothing good comes out of it. A bunch of left wing weenies sitting in a room crying about civil liberties can do no good here!!!

Day 3 and I already dont feel safe!

I'm Baaaaaack

Hey to the one reader I may actually have. I am back. I took some time off to rest, regroup and step back and reflect about all the events that took place post election day. I have not been pleased with some appointments and controversies, but Obama is my president and it is up to all of us to work together for the greater good of the nation. If I turned my back on this administration then I will be no better than the liberal anti-American loons who turned their backs on American just to spite Bush. It's a display I dont think America loving conservatives sould make. We can show the left that our love for America runs deep and we wont cut off our noses to spite our faces... here is a post I made on Facebook this week and it is the kick off to the re-birth of Lamb in the Lions den.

“My affections were first for my own country, then, generally, for all mankind” Thomas JeffersonI am a little concerned by the amount of people who are saying things today like "now I am finally proud to be an American". I understand today was an important day and that it is the sign of new times, but patriotism is loving America no matter who is in office. It’s not just about politics. If you are a patriot of this great nation then you love her always. I did not vote for Obama, but now he is my president and I love this country as much as he does. So now we all work together. As he said, work together not as Republicans or Democrats, but as Americans! I am NOT going to stop being proud to be an American just because a Democrat is in office.

It's like no one listened to Obama's speech. How can we rise up and give the greatest thanks to those who came from other countries and worked their fingers to the bone so we could live better? How can we thank those who fought and died in countless wars and conflicts for us to have this day when an African American could be our president? By spitting in their faces and being patriots only when it suites us? So if you think that way today, think about how you felt when you watched the towers fall on 9/11. That day, it didn’t matter who was in office because we came together as one in a show of unity. It wasn’t until days later that it became politicized. Let's not forget that feeling. We shouldn’t have to be attacked to stand together and love this country.

" You can disagree with her leaders, but your love for her should never falter. If it does, then get your ass to Canada."
