No sooner had the last words of President Bush’s farewell address to the nation faded, than the liberal gals at PMSNBC felt compelled to weigh in with their usual “impartiality”. Keith Olberwomann, sportscaster turned liberal genius, who left ESPN “under a cloud of controversy”, was making cow eyes at Christine Matthews, the host of the wildly popular PMSNBC show “Noballs” and former “Carter Communist Club” “speechwriter.” Both liberals wearing their traditional skirts and wonder bras, are still getting “a thrill running up my leg”, about the next Socialist Svengali intent upon destroying the nation and both couldn’t resist one last opportunity to beat around the Bush..
This will be a recurring theme for the next four years as there will be no other excuses available for the liberals and the inevitable futility and dereliction that inevitably follow them in the world of politics. They will hold the Presidency, the House and the Senate. Any and all failures industriously implemented by the fifth columnists in search of the next “New Deal” will be quickly attributed to W. We will not have long to wait as the House Democrats are now working on a $825,000,000,000.00 “stimulus package”. With Rodham soon to be butchering international relations and BHO/JFK in need of the perpetual teleprompter and their scandals already accruing, the only thing funnier than the idea of a liberal “economic stimulus package” will be the magical transformation of Michelle O to Jackie O..
I suppose that with Bill yearning to get his weenie back in the political campfire as the “two for the price of one Secretary of State”, the idea of a “stimulus package” takes on an old familiar flavor, that of chubby interns, cheap cigars and countless lies under oath.
This story of the 825 billion dollar “stimulus” plan (“House Democrats Propose $825B Stimulus Package”, Foxnews.) made very few if any waves today, even with the liberals who are simply giddy with excitement over the Inauguration a few days from now. No one is talking about this first mash note that the leftists will be sending to the “Marionette Messiah”..
As always, when the left talks about “stimulus”, it always becomes the economic equivalent of tossing a cinder block to a drowning man. It has been broken down into two categories, “$550 billion in spending programs and $275 billion in temporary tax cuts”. Please make note of the word “temporary”.. In the end, it will probably be replaced by “non-existent”.
Of this $550 billion dollars in “spending programs”, it is being reported that there will be “$87 billion dollars to help the states meet the rising costs of providing health care for the poor”. Included as well are “39 billion dollars to subsidize coverage by out-of-work wage earners who cannot afford the cost of their employer-covered health care.” That is $126 billion dollars alone that will have absolutely nothing to do with “stimulating the economy”, it is just another step towards the socialized medicine that the left has drooled over since the last Clinton embarrassment.
“More than $100 billion dollars is ticketed for education”. We are now up to $226 billion dollars of this revenue grab that will not stimulate the economy which is what the left claims the bill is intended to do. The previously mentioned $100 billion dollars is the partial payment to the NEA for delivering their votes in November. This is just the down payment, remember, “it’s for the kids”..
There is “more than $20 billion dollars in tax cuts to promote the development of alternative to oil fuels..” Even the liberals themselves can’t agree on this over priced bio-diversity buncombe. Michael Grunwald claims that “one person could be fed for 365 days on the corn needed to fuel an ethanol-fueled SUV.” He further says, “hyped as an eco-friendly fuel, ethanol increases global warming, destroys forests and inflates food prices”. Time April 7, 2008.) What is truly frightening are the areas reported where no actual amounts of stolen/redistributed tax dollars are given.
The article states, “increased spending on food stamps, unemployment insurance and job training.” It goes even farther with, “..billions more to make public housing, federal buildings and modest-income homes more energy efficient.” Still waiting to hear about anything that might “stimulate” the economy. This is nothing more than just another series of involuntary doses of liberal Ipecac that will be forced down the throats of the tax paying middle class. At least when Roosevelt implemented his Socialist takeover, he created some cute little acronyms to soften the blows of his collectivism.
The liberals in the House decided that the measure should further penalize the middle and upper classes just for spite. They decided to scrap the request to include a $3,000 tax credit for each new job created by private companies. The left still believes that the way to “stimulate” the economy is to punish those who produce the jobs and the nation’s wealth and to give it those who are professional siphons and bottom feeders.
There is nothing in this bill to “help middle-to-upper-income taxpayers ensnared in the alternative minimum tax..” which “now threatens more than twenty million tax payers”.. Never mind that the IRS’s National Taxpayer’s Advocate Report of 2006 called the AMT “the most serious problem with the tax code..” The CBO (Congressional Budget Office) in a brief issued on April 15, 1994 said, “..one in five taxpayers will have a AMT liability..” and it further said “the AMT has extended its reach to many upper-middle-income households”. When the IRS says a tax is a “serious problem”, you had to figure that that would be the green light for the liberal Reds.
David Obey (liberal, Wisconsin) said that this measure was necessary in order to “prevent an economic catastrophe..” The implementation of this tumor of a bill would be the cause of an economic catastrophe. Obey then verified his liberal provenance by adding, “that ($825 billion) may be insufficient alone” and to drive the nail home in the middle class coffin he added for full effect, “this product may undershoot the mark”. Obey decided to speak for all of the liberals when he said that the Socialists wanted this “bill” ready the day after the Inauguration, or as he called it, “the day after the crown prince is sworn in..”
For those who are observant, the progressive primer for this communist cash cow was the “Plan To Jump Start America’s Ailing Economy” from the January 2008 “Ridiculous Rodham Run”, and Rodham only wanted seventy billion to waste on the mendicants. Little did we know that we were getting off light.. The last “Obey observation”, and the most telling relative to the liberal “thought process” is, “I felt there was a hole in our hearts if we weren’t taking care of that problem”.. With the strains of Morris Albert’s 1975 hit (Feelings..) squeaking away in the background and as mentioned before, this has become the economic equivalent of having Kevorkian as your “caretaker”..
The summary of this bill claims an “unprecedented accountability”, which is as hilarious as Nancy “Where’s my 727?” Pelosi claiming that she will preside over the “most ethical congress in history”. This whole “compassion play” seems to make as much sense as giving $700 billion dollars in TARP money to the same people who created the need for the TARP money in the first place..
John Boehner of Ohio said, “the Democrats prepared this legislation with no Republican input at all”. That is actually a very good thing. That way the blame for this liberal floater can therefore be properly directed to the members of the liberal caliphate and its clueless leader, Barack Hussein Obama.
