“It’s an honor to be here tonight. I speak to you not as a representative of young Hollywood, but as a representative of the many millions of young Americans, particularly young women, who depend on public and nonprofit programs to help them survive.” – Scarlett Johansson.
Listen, my dear ScarJo, you have NO idea what us young women are facing out here. So shut up! You just continue you’re not-so-hard job of getting paid to entertain us and do us all a favor out here and keep you’re weirdly large mouth shut. If there is anyone I DO NOT need lecturing me about why we need to re-elect the worst President in history, it is a bunch of out-of-touch celebrities like Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria, Kerri Walsh, and whoever the hell else thinks they know what they’re talking about in Hollywood. Especially about the plight of women!!! (I think the same of Clint Eastwood, Hollywood just needs to stay out of politics because how can they honestly have any clue what is happening out here in the real world… I mean Clint’s daughter set a 10,000 dollar purse on fire for Merlin’s sake.) HAHA You are kidding yourself if you think Miss Johansson goes to a PUBLIC hospital when she needs medical care! Uh, no. What these people don’t care to understand is that if this President got out of our way out here in the real world, we’d be much better off. If we had a President who was going to continue the Bush-era tax cuts for everyone, deregulate the private sector, and work help the free market grow we would be much better off! We would not have to depend on the President, or anyone on the hill for that matter! We’d be able to feel better about our investments and our businesses. We’d have to give less of our hard-earned paychecks to the feds. If we actually allowed for the private sector to thrive, costs all around would go down, the price of living would be much more manageable, and not to mention the jobs that would be created out of a free flowing market! Wow! Rocket science? Nope! WE DO NOT NEED TO RELY ON THE GOVERNMENT, and to have celebrities telling us we I do, COME ON! Not only was Obama’s speech completely underwhelming, I just grew frustrated by the parade of completely out-of-touch people telling me what to do!
I hate the word depend so much! I work on a daily basis to make myself completely independent! I work on a daily basis to not have to ask for a hand-out, and to not owe anyone anything. By allowing the government into your life, you allow them to have control over it. I cannot think of anyone that actually wants this. Who wants to be controlled? Who wants to be dependant on other people, and rely on others to take of you? Unless you are the laziest person on the Earth, no one!!! The theme of the DNC was dependence. It was a message of you need us, not you can do this on your own and we are going to get out of your way. That is the difference between the two conventions. The Republican’s talked about independence rooted in a strong family, faith and a small government. The Democrat’s talked about how we need them in office to take cares of us, we need to rely on them, and we need to give them another chance.
What it comes down to, my fellow citizen’s, is do you want people in office who are going to get out of your way and allow you to thrive and grow on your own? Or do you want people in office who are going to make it so you rely on them, and become dependent on them? To me the choice is quite obvious, being a strong, smart, and independent women, but I implore you to really think about that difference and make a smart and solid decision.
Today, we add almost 1.8 million more job-seekers to an already extremely over saturated market. At this time of RECORD unemployment, almost 2 million more people will be searching for a job! And you want to know the kicker, they are all illegal alien’s who have been granted amnesty today. Displaying yet again his disrespect and blatant disregard for the Constitution, Obama will allow these illegal aliens to stay in the State’s for 2 years on what they are calling “deferred action.” The USCIS will today begin accepting applications for these millions of people without requiring an interview or a criminal background check, they just get to stay for two years, with unlimited renewal’s or their “deferred action.”
Yes, people, this is really happening!!! Congress has once again displayed just how incredibly out of touch and crazy they are! This is BLATANTLY Unconstitutional, yet they have not challenged this “DREAM” act since 2010! They have just become content to sit back an accept and blindly follow Obama right through the backdoor, bypassing the Constitution and popular opinion YET AGAIN! The reason why these idiot’s are on the hill and are in Congress is to uphold and protect the Constitution, and reign in the power of the President should he/she become to powerful. WHAT THE HELL is going on here? Congress has a responsibility to make immigration laws. They also have the responsibility to reprimand the President when he BLATANTLY ABUSES EXECUTIVE POWER. This is illegal! Obama is ILLEGALLY allowing ILLEGAL immigrants to stay! Why does he get all of these free passes??? This is madness! Obvious, crazy, and blatant MADNESS!
All I can do is sit here and hope that the millions of unemployed CITIZEN’S notice these nearly 2 million NEW people also clambering for the job they are after, then feel the salt in their already jobless and pulsating wound when this NEW person will do the same job for much less. Obama DOES NOT CARE about the average AMERICAN citizen. He does not care whether you are employed or not. He want’s to be your ruler, and push you around while handing you things, he want’s to expand the number of people reliant on the government, expand welfare, tell you what healthcare you can have, and regulate your business, and collect your money, and force you to compete with workers willing to work for less pay, and THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE STILL OK WITH THESE THINGSSSS! Why, WHY, are there still so many people who support this DISASTER OF A PRESIDENT?!?! PLEASEEEEEEEE, PLEASE ENLIGHTEN ME IN THE COMMENTS. Thank you.
So I have not been paying any attention to this whole ‘War on Women’ crap cause it just sounds like something some pissed off feminist made up to yell about, but now our dear President is in my state to apparently ‘stoke the War on Women.’ So I had to look it up and do a little research.
So this really is not some war on women at all. This is about spending. Which, apparently, the liberal’s are too dumb to figure out. They are up in arm’s because Mitt Romney has pledged to cut off federal funding for Planned Parenthood. I am a woman, annndddd UH DUH! The federal government should NOT be funding ANYTHING let alone Planned effing Parenthood! Apparently, cutting spending is anti-progressive these days. You know what ‘progressive’s,’ go fall off a really high cliff! All you are doing is swelling the debt and the government and making it difficult for normal people to scrape by! If you want birth control, get off your ass, get a job, and pay for it! If everyone just understood that if they stopped relying on the government for healthcare and insurance services the price of everything would GO DOWN because the government would have MORE DAMN MONEY and there would actually be some competition out there in the market place! WHYYYYYY is that so difficult for everyone to understand?! Everyone is looking for a hand out these days, a free pass! It is sad! When did people become so reliant on other’s to take care of them, what happened to self-dependence and taking care of yourself? I mean how lazy have we become that we have spun some ridiculous tale of a ‘War on Women’ in order to obtain free birth control and other “women related healthcare issues?! Like WHAT THE FLUKE (anyone catch that, feelin’ pretty damn clever right now) PEOPLE?! This is getting out of hand. So every time a politician suggest’s cutting spending and reducing the size of the government, we are going to have some new IDIOTIC catch phrase or term for it? I mean ‘War on Women’ for Merlin’s sake. No, ‘War on the debt you idiot’s are racking up for your children and your grandchildren and your great-grandchildren for being FUCKING IDIOTS!’ I think is a much more proper phrase for what is really at work here. And much more catchy, if you ask me. AHHHH!
Haven’t had a good rant in a while.
Take from rich and give to the poor. That’s the Robin Hood mentality, and that is the mentality of the President. Let me explain why that doesn’t work, ever.
To tax anything by definition is to take away something and then give it over to the government. Rich people are rich because they own a lot of shi!t. Asset’s, in other words. Therefor, taxing the rich is taking away their stuff. Who do you know that keeps a million dollars in their bank account? Wealthy people’s money goes into things; business’s, factories, buildings, cars, houses, bonds, stocks, you know, asset’s! It just does! Contrary to popular belief, 89% of the nation’s wealthy are self-made. The rich own a good portion, actually a great portion, of the non-residential assets in America. These are counted as ‘wealth’, but they are really being used to build the economy, create GDP, and provide jobs. Now the thing is, the greedy federal government does not want these assets, they want cold hard cash up there on the hill. So by raising taxes on the rich, the government is having them liquify their stuff and their buildings and their asset’s. Meaning what really happens is that money that could have gone to create more non-residential assets for the wealthy tax payer (business, buildings, factories, oil wells, etc…) has to be redirected to buy the taxpayer’s already existing assets and the taxpayer in turn has to hand that money over the the government. Government has more money, but a wealthy taxpayer now has less asset’s to use to create jobs and business and so on and so forth. For the past half century or so the relationship between non-residential assets and GDP has been basically the same, and pretty steady. About 1 dollar of non-residential assets creates about 50 cents of gross domestic product. BEA data says that a regular job is usually supported by about 200 thousand dollar’s in non-residential assets. So in other word’s, wealthy people’s non-residential asset’s are essential to creating and sustaining jobs. So, unavoidably, if you tax away 200 thousand dollar’s from a rich person, the GDP will drop by about 100 thousand dollars in a year (because of the 1 to .50 ratio and because wealthy people own most of the non-residential asset’s in the nation), federal money intake goes down about 20 thousand dollars per year because of the loss of income tax collection, and employment will go down by exactly one job. (One job is supported by 200 thousand dollars.) 200 thousand is undeniably more than 20 thousand dollars so you might be thinking the federal government is winning. It is not winning, it is actually losing, a lot. Why? Because to get the 200 grand, the fed had to give up the 20 thousand dollar’s in income tax I was talking about and the current value of 20 thousand is just around 600 THOUSAND DOLLARS. That’s how bad things are! Just to put that into a little bit simpler of an explanation, when the government taxes and takes away 200 grand from a wealthy person, it sinks itself by about 400 thousand dollars. And on top of that, someone is out a job.
I mean, you can’t argue with that.
Ever heard of these funny little things being passed and approved on a regular basis known as “celebratory, simple resolutions?” Well, two thoughts ran through my head when I heard about them. 1) What the F. Scott Fitzgerald are they celebrating in DC anyway? I can’t think of anything they should be happy about. (Except perhaps’ their personal bank accounts and that ‘high end call girl’ is one sector of job growth that isn’t struggling…) 2) If any of these people in Congress, the Senate, and the White House have any ‘simple’ solutions’ brewing in their diminutive brains about how to fix this country, I owe you 57 trillion dollar’s. So anyway, after those two things ran through my mind, I was then able to wrap it around the extent of the stupidity at work here. It turns out that these “celebratory, simple resolution’s” are referring to sh!t like “National Bowling Day,” “National Hug a Tree Day,” “National Paperclip Day,” “National Chinese Day,” “National Punch A Senator Day,” “National Investor’s Month,” “National Safe Digging Month,” “Sidewalk Appreciation Week,” “Year of Water,” “Triwizard Tournament Remembrance Week,” “National Chess Day,” and all of that crap! And want to know the saddest thing, 87% of those things are actually real! Now each “resolution” cost’s TWELVE HUNDRED DOLLAR’S OR MORE. And do you want to know what else, there have been MORE THAN 300 of these things passed since January! WHAT THE FLINSTONE’S? There are more of these on the table, and by the end of August these STUPID things will have cost tax payers more than FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS! Merlin, wizard of Wales.
Now thankfully, there is a Senator up there with his head on at least semi-straight, Jim DeMint. He has suggested a bill that require’s senator’s, if they feel these idiotic days or months or whatever are absolutely necessary, to pay for them themselves’. UH, DUH! No one care’s what the name of a day is! We care about employment rising, the economy recovering, spending being cut, the debt being chipped away at, safe borders, and the over all hapinness of the citizen’s.
Dear People of Washington DC,
The Hill is not a treehouse, stop acting like children in a stupid little kid club and wasting time on stupid things like what to call the day… I did that when I was six and it usually had something to do with my little pony. Grow up.
New reports from The Hill say that Obama has a mountain of cash under his campaign, but despite this plethora of funds, he has added several fundraisers. These fundraisers are after the convention during the campaign blitz that is the fall every four years. This is very unusual, most past incumbent’s already have a satisfactory and extremely large amount of money raised by the convention so they can spend the fall hammering the swing states and actually find time to govern. (But Obama doesn’t govern very often, and when he does it is not so much in a democratic way but by way of a monarch, so this won’t be much of a change for him.) Why is he doing this? Because Obama has a knack for BURNING THROUGH CASH. It is estimated that Obama spends between 20 and 25 million dollars a MONTH on the infrastructure of his campaign, and has spent even more than that on ads attacking Romney’s character. Let me just state a few facts for ya’ real quick here. Obama has attended more fundraisers than the past FIVE President’s COMBINED. He has attended one hundred and twenty fundraiser’s in the last six months, and he has met with his jobs council exactly ZERO times during that time. He has attended fundraiser’s with Hollywood stars, aaaand I honestly can’t think of another group that supports him other than just rich liberals I suppose? However, much like he does not understand this fact when it comes to the economy, you cannot spend more money than you have coming in. Obama’s fundraiser’s are coming up shorthanded. I mean, this is just a PERFECT metaphor for the situation we are in. Obama built a campaign he ASSUMED he would be able to pay for, and it turn’s out he can’t. Now he is literally begging donors to bail him out! OHH THE IRONY! I love it. You should see the smug firetruckin’ smirk on my face right now! Teheheheh
In addition to my sticker stating that Obama is an idiot, I also have this sticker on the back of my car:
I, for some reason, get A LOT of flack for this sticker. Save for some pissed off and crazy liberal’s that yell profanities at me in traffic, more people comment on this sticker than the IDIOT sticker! Republican’s and Democrat’s alike seem to think I am out of my mind for supporting someone as “goofy” and as “inconsequential” as Ron Paul. So, my fellow citizen’s, let me explain my reasoning for throwing my support behind Mr. Paul.
Ron Paul is not, and has never been, a scummy “modern politician” – as I like to call them. Save for those crazy and very mean people who smell like body odor and crack in line at insane clown posse, these modern politician’s we have are my least favorite people on this planet. They gross me out, they make me nauseous, and they definitely don’t have the country’s best interest’s at heart. To quote a quite beloved Christmas story of mine, I wouldn’t touch one with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole. Mr. Paul has fought tirelessly to restore the original political values of our country. He always refer’s to himself as a statesmen, and not a politician. A good and recent quote: “A politician thinks of the next election. A statesmen, of the next generation.” Here’s another good one on why he is excluded from my definition of a modern politician: ” When the federal government spends more each year than it collects in tax revenues, it has three choices: It can raise taxes, print money, or borrow money. While these actions may benefit politicians, all three options are bad for average Americans.” I mean, what is not to like about those statements, he is not goofy, he just hasn’t fallen in line with what a politician is today; only concerned with themselves and how much power and money they can gain. Maybe that is weird by the new standard of politician, but it is certainly not something he should continuously be scorned for!
A lot of people think I am dumb for supporting a foreign policy like Ron Paul’s. While I do believe that obviously war is sometime’s necessary, I do not see the problem with keeping our noses out of other countries business until they directly attack, effect, or pose a threat to our homeland. For example, here’s another Paul quote: “Everyone assumes America must play the leading role in crafting some settlement or compromise between the Israelis and the Palestinians. But Jefferson, Madison, and Washington explicitly warned against involving ourselves in foreign conflicts.” I agree completely. Until ither of those places is a direct threat to the homeland, why do we have to be involved? I am really asking that question, feel free to leave your answer in the comments. But personally, I am of the opinion that until we are messed with, we do not need to mess with anyone else. This goes for Syria, Libya, Cuba, Tatooine, Mordor, or wherever the hell something is happening. We need to pump our defense money into making OUR troops and OUR borders stronger. This way, when there is a threat to America, imagine how strong our military and our borders would be if we solely spent defense money on ourselves? Another quote: “How did we win the election in the year 2000? We talked about a humble foreign policy: No nation-building; don’t police the world. That’s conservative, it’s Republican, it’s pro-American – it follows the founding fathers. And, besides, it follows the Constitution.” “I am just absolutely convinced that the best formula for giving us peace and preserving the American way of life is freedom, limited government, and minding our own business overseas.”
I am also of the opinion that the media is extremely unfair to Ron Paul. They, first of all, barely cover him at all. And when they do, it is as a goof ball with off-the-wall, irrelevant causes and opinions. Ron Paul has the most Constitutional views and stances of ANY CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT right now. Once again, I will back this bold statement with a direct quote from the man himself: “I will always vote what I have promised, and always vote the Constitution, as well as I will not vote for one single penny that isn’t paid for, because debt is the monster, debt is what’s going to eat us up and that is why our economy is on the brink.” He has not lost sight of what the Founding Father’s believed in. He is the one person who constantly fights for, quotes, and supports the Constitution. “The moral and constitutional obligations of our representatives in Washington are to protect our liberty, not coddle the world, precipitating no-win wars, while bringing bankruptcy and economic turmoil to our people.” I mean, I can go on and on with quotes from Mr. Paul constantly siting the Constitution, small government, the Founding Fathers, personal liberty, and the value of the citizen’s over the politician’s.
In my very humble, though often times correct, opinion if you see Ron Paul as a goofy, irrelevant wacko you have been manipulated by a media that is hellbent on protecting large government, shredding the Constitution, and encouraging discourse in America. Though I am aware Ron Paul has said some questionable things in the past, I would be TERRIFIED to look deeply in the past lives and quotes of Obama and Romney. Ron Paul is the only person who will endlessly defend and protect the Constitution and what this country was founded on, as will I. So there you have it, that is why I like Ron Paul. You either love Ron Paul, or you don’t understand him.
So I normally don’t concern myself with what is happening in the fast food world, unless it involves those golden, delicious, crack laced, french fries from McDonald’s (I seriously need them to survive), but recently I began hearing a whole lot about Chick-fil-A. Now Chick-fil-A is owned my a Mormon man named Dan Cathy. Mr. Cathy recently announced that he does not support gay marriage. While I do support everyone’s right to marry whoever they want, the fact that Mr. Cathy does not hold the same opinion as me will not deter me from occasionally indulging in those wonderfully delicious waffle fries that are available at Chick-fil-A. Why?! BECAUSE I ALSO BELIEVE EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO THEIR OWN DAMN OPINION! Why did I feel the need to type that sentence capitalized you may be wondering… because every liberal from LA to New York is just OUTRAGED that Dan Cathy does not support gay marriage! Dan Cathy is a religious man who believes marriage should be what the Bible says it should be. And the liberal’s can just not TOLERATE that. Rahm Emanuel (on my list of least favorite human beings on the planet) is contemplating denying Chick-fil-A zoning and building permits in Chicago because of the CEO’s stance! For the love of Merlin!!! Another, ANOTHER, blatant attack on the First Amendment! The beauty and privilege of being an American is having the undeniable right to say and believe whatever you want! Boston Mayor Thomas Menino recently said it would be very difficult for the chain to obtain a permit in Boston because of the CEO’s stance on gay marriage. This is punishing someone for exercising his right to believe whatever he wants to believe! You CANNOT do that! We have to let people believe what they want to believe, and TOLERATE it! It is time this madness stops. The First Amendment is not up for compromise. No one “shall make a law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” WHAT IS SO DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND ABOUT THAT SENTENCE? Merrrlllinnnnn.
Updated 8/2: Cathy is not a Mormon, he’s Baptist.
You may have seen these obnoxious and self-righteous stickers around town:
I was driving home yesterday from work behind a man in an old school Toyota Prius (he COULD NOT drive like a normal human being, mind you) and he had this sticker in the center of his back window along with a plethora of other smug stickers. Some of those including one that said “Hybrids: So many miles, so little gas,” “What are conservatives trying to conserve?” and “I brake for animals, but not Republicans!” There were many, many more but I can’t remember all of them… what is the liberal infatuation with bumper stickers? Anyway, this is the sticker on the back of my gas guzzling, bare bones, ’97 Wrangler:
No secret, I think the President is an idiot. So this guy in the teal hybrid changes lanes and gets right next to me at a light. His lane is moving slower than mine so he changes lanes again, right behind me. Oh the look of disgust and horror that crossed his face is priceless! Priceless I tell you! So he speeds up, cuts the guy off in the other lane to get next to me, and we stop at another light. He looks over, and I sh!t you not, says this to me:
“How the fudge popsicles (he did not say fudge popsicles) can you think our President is an idiot?! People like you need to burn!!!!!”
Picture crazy eyes and spit flying.
So I look back at him and say:
“So are you saying you are tolerant of everyone but fellow American’s who have a different opinion than you?”
Picture a look of complete bewilderment and confusion.
Why do liberals continually try to come off as peace-loving, accepting, tolerant, and open-minded people when all they constantly try to do is undermine, discredit, smear, attack, and bring down other American’s who simply have different political views than themselves? They preach about how people need to accept others of all different religion’s, races, sexual orientations, and what have you, but they just cannot accept people who have a different political opinion! I am sure I have said this before because it is one of my favorite rant lines, but the double standard liberals operate on never ceases to amaze me.
The house has approved Ron Paul’s “audit the fed” package! And quite overwhelmingly at that… 327-98.
While I will be keeping my hopes up, I don’t see this moving past the Senate. (The real scumbags live there.) None the less, this is a huge victory for Mr. Paul and those of us who have supported his effort’s. The media continually ridicules and ignores Ron Paul for a reason unbeknown to me. (I do know actually, because Ron Paul crusades against large government and fights for transparency in the Federal Reserve, and the media protect’s the agendas of liberals who constantly expand the powers of the government and the control it has over our lives. But shhhhh… they don’t think we know.) This victory they will not be able to ignore so easily. This sends a message that Democrats and Republican’s alike would like to know about the atrocities happening within the Federal Reserve, as would many, many American’s. I think this shows how libertarianism has really moved into the mainstream. If I had my choice, I’d love to see Paul as President. At least on the ballot. He’s not as goofy as the media would have you believe.
” ‘I think when people talk about independence and having this privacy of the central bank means they want secrecy, and secrecy is not good,’ Paul said during Tuesday floor debate on his bill. ‘We should have privacy for the individual, but we should have openness of government all the time, and we’ve drifted a long way from that.’ “
