Face to face with the worst economic crisis confronting our nation in decades, our dedicated public servants are hard at work on our behalf.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is busy launching an online petition for readers to express their outrage at conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh. This, coming on the heels of triumphant Democrats confirming a tax cheat as our new Treasury Secretary, which came on the heels of giddy Democrats spearheading a new bill through Congress that would require camera phones to make a sound when taking a picture.
Six Democrats were busy enjoying a Caribbean junket sponsored by Citigroup after Congress obligingly approved the $700 billion bailout of financial services firms in October, while others were hard at work crafting a $819 billion spending package under the guise of stimulating the economy.
What spending millions of bucks on sexually transmitted diseases and giving billions of our tax dollars to corrupt left-wing groups like ACORN has to do with stimulation has yet to be explained. Instead, we’re urged to look at ‘the larger picture’.
The ‘larger picture’ that immediately comes to my mind is Father Earth, Algore, testifying before Congress, warning of the imminent demise of the human species because of global warming, while the storm of the century rages across 1,400 miles of the U.S. I digress…
President Obama meanwhile, continues his honeymoon, bravely shrugging off the arrest of his half-brother for dope and his aunt’s illegal status.
In response to news that Iran now has the ability to manufacture a nuclear weapon this year, Obama ordered the closure of Guantanamo and changed the rules governing interrogation of terrorists, in order to assure these prisoners not be made “uncomfortable.” No mention was made of the 61 Gitmo inmates that had already been released and found, once again, engaged in jihad.
Obama then followed up by asking the military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff to cut the Pentagon’s budget request for the fiscal year 2010 by more than 10 percent — about $55 billion.
Obama reacted to Republican Congressman and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Peter Hoekstra’s comment “There’s no way and no chance to stop the Iranian nuclear program,” by penning a Dear Achmadinejad letter to Iran, legitimizing the rogue regime by agreeing to direct talks, something Bush had refused to do.
Iran promptly responded, claiming that Obama’s offer signaled that America’s policy of “domination” has failed. “This request means Western ideology has become passive, that capitalist thought and the system of domination have failed,” Iran gleefully retorted.
No fool, he, Obama had already pre-empted Iran by appointing Gary Samore as our new Weapons of Mass Destruction Czar, allowing him to continue focusing on his plan to do away with the military’s ‘Don’t ask, Don’t tell’ policy regarding gays in the military.
Anticipating this new policy,
Army Secretary Pete Geren has approved adding legal personnel
to help combat sexual assault among soldiers, which he deemed “repugnant to the core values” of the Army.
Meanwhile, our dedicated public servants on the state level are just as busy. New York’s Mayor Bloomberg, facing shrinking tax revenues that have turned the $1.3 billion November budget hole into a now $4 billion chasm, took to the microphones and declared a war on – salt. I’m not making this stuff up.
