2012 Election Information

American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 August 19, 2010

I want to talk about the American Recovery and Investment Act of 2009.

In my travels I came across this project in Pismo Beach, California

Ok so let me start by saying that I am all for improvements for local municipalities. It is really nice to see improvements that are about safety and are visually and ergonomically pleasing.

However I do not want these improvements to be paid for by federal tax payer dollars.  This project being built is using money from a tax payer in Detroit, Michigan or Beloit, Wis or what ever other town or city that federal tax payer dollars come from. I want local projects to come from either local county, city tax payer dollars or local bond measures.

Ok so why federal tax payer dollars and not local taxes or bonds?  Well as you know California just like so many other states is broke. We have a liberal government that has run this state for years that believes in high taxes, and very strict EPA restrictions. In other words California is not necessarily business friendly. As our economy fails in California so does the tax base from which projects like this are funded locally. To make matters worse the state of California’s credit rating is very very poor.

So what does this mean?  Well if California’s credit rating is bad then investing in any local or municipal bonds would be a very bad investment.  Why? There is not enough tax revenue to pay back the bond to the bond holders.

Why is there not enough tax revenue? Because there is high unemployment, upwards of 12.3%

OK so you read this and say, Well the EDD says the number of unemployed is down, Isn’t that good?  Well no.  The problem is that the EDD can only count the people that are actively collecting unemployment. The EDD cannot count the people that have dropped from the EDD system and have given up on looking for a job. So the real unemployment rate is more like 15-18%. If you count those that have dropped out from the system.

Ok so where am I going with this?

Did this grant money from the ARRA create jobs.  Yes it did. It created temporary union construction jobs that will end when this project is done.

Did the grant money create any full time sustainable jobs?  Sort of.

Notice in the plans above there are no provisions for any private owned businesses on the  pier.  Bait Shop, Restaurant, Souvenir Shop etc. Something that will employ people and generate sales tax income for the city of  Pismo Beach.

So what jobs did this create?  Well someone has to maintain this facility, paint, bathroom cleaning etc.  So maybe it will create a few CITY GOVERNMENT jobs to be paid with either state, county or city taxes to maintain this facility.  But where is that money going to come from?  Another hand out from the federal government?

There is always the possibility that the City of Pismo Beach could hire an outside contractor to maintain this facility.  That would create jobs in the private sector……but that maintenance contractor would still have to be paid with local or state taxpayer dollars.

If there was an outside contractor hired to do the maintenance on this new facility, how would they get the contract?  How much would they charge and who is the contractor? Will this be another SEIU involved organization that will continue to rape and pillage the local and state governments? Is there any Nepotism involved here?

Why would I even think of Nepotism?  LOL I was born and raised in Chicago and I have been surrounded by corrupt, usually Democratic politics my who life and now we have it running rampant in Washington DC.

Again I love the idea of new and improved public facilities funded by local tax dollars.  I just have to ask the person that is reading this that lives in Bridgeport, Connecticut how are they going to enjoy the fruits of their federal tax payer dollars being spent in Pismo Beach, CA?

10th Amendment And Other Topics. April 3, 2010

Hello All.

It has been a while since I have posted anything.  There was a time when there was maybe one big political atrocity per week or maybe two perpetrated on the US population by the Barack Obama’s wrecking crew. In the past months it would have been impossible for me to comment on all the things that have happened.  I just would have not had enough hours in the day. As I absorbed the series of events that have occurred, I came to a conclusion that a lot of these events have been exposed with ever sharpening coverage by Fox News Network.  When I first started to blog the Tea Party did not exist.  My goal in my writings was to get people to think. My goal did not include converting Democrats into Republicans or Republicans into Democrats.  My goal was to convert sheep following a good looking guy that spoke really well from a TelePrompTer into Patriotic Americans that would wake up, do their own research, read history and come to the conclusion that Marxist Socialism has been a huge failure in past history. Marxist Socialism is a distorted Utopian view on social/economic, human lifestyle.

Since I have started to blog, the Tea Party has come into existence.  Here is the irony about what is going on.  Most of the people, especially the younger Barack Obama disciples, do not even understand the origin of the Tea Party.  What I mean by that is they have no idea what the Boston Tea Party December 16, 1773 was or what it stood for.  My writings were inspired by trying to re-light the passion of the American Patriotic movement.  No No No.  I am not taking ANY credit for the new Tea Party movement….No.  But this is what I was hoping would happen.

It is very very clear that Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosie et. al. have been the most UN-American political party to ever hold court over the United States.  I feel very very confident that we will see the repercussion of this in the mid term elections in November of 2010.

As a follower of the Libertarian Party, I still have a lot of concerns about the mid term elections.  In the past Republicans have been responsible for massive tax spending along with Democrats. This is the core charge of of the new Tea Party movement. The Tea Party is about overpowering government both Republican and Democrat.

The currant issue is that if the Republicans regain control of the House and/or the Senate, will the politicians in control have learned that the people do not want huge, overpowering, dominant, controlling government and continue to make the same fatal mistakes as the currant and past administrations have made.

If we continue to elect the same ilk of self-centered, selfish, egotistical and unpatriotic people to office, the problem will continue to persist.  Maybe I am at the other end of the Utopian rainbow thinking that this could ever happen.  I don’t know. You can comment at anytime.

The next few months will be a political stage show that will continue to show the ineptness of the Barack Obama Tyranny.

I will make one comment on the constitutionality  of the Barack Obama Health insurance train wreck that was forced down the throats of US Citizens against our will.

If we read the 10th Amendment to the US Constitution, It is very easy to see that Barack Obama clearly disregarded the Constitution of the United States of America.  The main point is forcing people to buy health insurance against their will.

TENTH AMENDMENT

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution,

nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the

States respectively, or to the people.”

I believe that the Supreme Court will eventually have to hear this case. If they refuse then it will be very apparent that Barack Obama has single handedly destroyed the core reason that the United States even exists.  Remember that the Reason that the United States exists was to separate us from the controls of the British Parliament.  The US Constitution was written to maintain this country’s autonomy from British Rule and the Taxes imposed upon the residents of the 13 original colonies.

If the Supreme Court hears this case that should be named. “The People of the United States Vs. Barack Obama”.

If the Supreme Court rules in favor of Barack Obama, It will be very obvious that something happened behind the scenes. What could that be that would happen?

Can a US Supreme Court justice be impeached and removed from office?

The answer is yes.

“Under normal circumstances, a Supreme Court justice is awarded a lifetime commission.

A Supreme Court Justice may be impeached by the House of Representatives and removed from office if convicted in a Senate trial, but only for the same types of offenses that would trigger impeachment proceedings for any other government official under Article I and II of the Constitution.

Section 1 of Article III states that judges of Article III courts shall hold their offices “during good behavior.” “The phrase “good behavior” has been interpreted by the courts to equate to the same level of seriousness the ‘high crimes and misdemeanors” encompasses.

In addition, any federal judge may prosecuted in the criminal courts for criminal activity. If found guilty of a crime in a federal district court, the justice would face the same type of sentencing any other criminal defendant would. The district court could not remove him/her from the Bench. However, any justice found guilty in the criminal courts of any felony would certainly be impeached and, if found guilty, removed from office.

In the United States, impeachment is most often used to remove corrupt lower-court federal judges from office, but it’s not unusual to find disgruntled special interest groups circulating petitions on the internet calling for the impeachment of one or all members of the High Court.”

Remember what I have posted before.  I am originally from Chicago and I grew up witnessing some of the most corrupt Chicago Democratic politics on the face of the earth.

Is the threat of Impeachment enough to sway the vote of a Supreme Court Justice?  I’ll let you answer that question. I will leave that up to you to do the research on that scenario.

I highly doubt that the Supreme Court will come to a decision while Barack Obama is still in office as I think this will take quite some time in the court to come to a decision.

However, if the case of “The People of the United States Vs. Barack Obama” comes before the court and is ruled in his favor before he leaves office then it will be very apparent that the corrupt Chicago politics has even influenced the highest court in the United States.  If that happens, all is lost for the autonomy and sovereignty of this country is forever damaged without the possibility of repair.

One last observation:

John Kennedy, a true Democrat: “Ask not what your country can do for you, rather ask what you can do for your country.”

Barack Obama, a true Marxist Socialist:  Barack Obama continues to tell us what our county will do for us.  All we have to do is do as Barack Obama says and pay taxes and the US Government will take care of everything else. The citizens do not have to do anything else for the US Government.

An Open Letter to Congressman Adam Schiff (D) (Congressional District number 29 of California) Sent 12/20/09 December 20, 2009

Dear Congressman Schiff.

I am 59 years old and I have health insurance. It is expensive. But I am very happy with it. Will I be able to keep it? Maybe. But I know that if I keep it I will be taxed because I have a “Cadillac Plan” and I will be penalized with a tax because I am considered a “Rich Bastard” because I can afford healthcare insurance.

I am so disappointed in the Marxist Socialist Democratic Party. The United States is now a single central party system just like in Communist countries. The way that the MSDR has bought off the votes of Senators is unprecedented in US History. Being originally from Chicago I have grown up with corrupt Democratic Party procedures. These corrupt policies are what Barack Obama brought to the White House from Chicago.

I’m sure you will be an idiot and vote for this train wreck of a healthcare bill that no one, not event the people voting for this know what is all in the bill because is was written by lay people who have no idea what the people of the United States care about. This is a blatant disregard of the of the desires of the citizens of the United States of America. This is legislation that should have been a bipartisan effort instead of being created behind closed doors, excluding Republicans and Independents. You know this was morally wrong and is not Constitutional. If this passes there will be people in office that will be convicted of treason and put in jail. I will join every effort to see that this happens. In any event because you never spoke out against this bill you will be considered in this movement. Is this a threat….No. Is it a fact? You will have to wait and see depending on how your vote. It won’t be me starting this movement but when it happens I will support it.

The fact that you even support the disgusting Nancy Pelosi and the Pelosians is just appalling. Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstien Et. al. and the SEIU have all but ruined this state of California. Companies are closing and moving from this state in large numbers. The reasons: Excruciating high taxes, crippling EPA restrictions and the corrupt SEIU stranglehold on business in this State. This state will never recover until it is run by any other party except for the Marxist Socialist Democratic Party.

Here is the fact that you have to go to sleep with tonight. “The problem with Marxist Socialist Entitlement Programs is that you eventually run out of OTHER peoples money.”

P.S. Ditto on all of this for “CAP AND TAX.” This is another MSDP train wreck. If you think there is unemployment now wait till businesses get hit with “Emission Taxes.” If you vote for this train wreck of a bill and create “Energy Credits” what do you think will happen? Who will create, trade and control energy credits that are the same as money? Wall Street. Do you thing the corrupt US Government will be allowed to control “Energy Credits.” This will then make the United States officially a Communist Country because the US Government will control everything that that happens in The United States. I want you to vote against any kind of CAP and TAX legislation.

In any event no matter what you do: “YOU ARE FIRED.”

Don’t bother to respond to this unless you say “I agree and I will vote against both the Health Care and the Cap and Tax Train wrecks.” If I get a response from you saying anything else I will consider it a “Canned Response” showing that you do not care about what the the Citizens of the United States really want.
