Solyndra-Gate

Well, well now, we are seeing the transparency of this administration once again. The Whitehouse is refusing to hand over text and other information relating to Solyndra. What’s the big frigging deal? Obama claims he has nothing to hide and his green investments are for the good of the country and will put millions of people to work. I don’t see the jobs, or anything good for the country for that matter. I guess pillaging the taxpayers out of 1/2 a billion dollars might seem like a good deal to Obama since it is obvious he could give a crap about you or I. I’ll tell you what, when Nixon erased 18 minutes of tape recordings the press went into a frenzy, it was the end of a Presidency. Some people say that a Blackberry is different, I don’t think so, the tape recorder was cutting edge back in the sixties so what the hell is the difference? The difference is that this President is so damn arrogant he thinks that he can do what ever the hell he wants and get away with it, and for the most part he has. It is now time for the chickens to come home to roost, that’s my little Jeremiah Wright thing going on there. This pathetic little President will pay for the destruction he’s causing and it won’t come soon enough.

Go Green, Get Rich

 

This whole global warming and green job initiative crap is nothing more than a money laundering scheme on the backs of the taxpayers. Yes, the earths temperature may have risen a few celsius degrees the last 200 years, but that’s nature. At one time the earth was nothing more than a 4,000 degree ball of fire. Then, the whole earth was covered in water. Golly Miss Molly, we forgot about the “ice age,” too. Mother nature with its ecliptic orbit around the sun, volcanoes, crashing meteors, ocean currents and God knows what else that’s going on, changes the planet like Imelda Marcos in a shoe store. Us humans that have been on this planet for a tiny spec of time are damn arrogant to think we can change the temperature. The green people are getting very wealthy selling their snake oil. Look at Al Gore, billionaire, he must be smarter than I ever gave him credit for. See folks, all you got to do is start-up some company, lets say, “a windmill farm.” Attend a couple political fundraising events, layout your Green Plan to one of the crooks after you gave a 100 dollar donation and you’re in. If you promise more donations in the future you will be set to receive very large sums of money in federal backed loans, whether you make a profit or not. Lets look at Solyndra, they never did show a profit, yet they received half a billion dollars from you. I don’t know about you, but that kinda pisses me off a bit. Companies like GE are littering the countryside with windmills that work only part-time at best, yet they receive billions. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the windmill transformers are made by the UAW, now, “who’s your daddy.” It’s time for the American people to wake up and put a stop to this nonsense. Please don’t get me wrong, I am for anything that will generate electricity or make my SUV run at a lower cost, but we havent found it yet without massive government subsidies.

Liberals in Congress have spent the past three decades pandering to environmental extremists. The policies they have put in place are in large part responsible for the energy crunch we are seeing today. We have not built a refinery in this country for 30 years.

OSHA the Business Buster

OSHA has overstepped its boundaries by beating up on the new construction industry, you say, “what new construction Industry?” That’s what I am  going to enlighten you on. Since the collapse of the housing market, due to Barney Frank  and Chris Dodds genius minds dealing with Freddie and Fanny, there is not much going on in construction. The unemployment for construction workers is at 28%, with over 2 million workers out of a job, I would venture to say they need every break they can get, for some reason OSHA doesn’t see it that way. In Johnson County, Kansas new construction has started to pick up slightly, I mean very slightly. The crews that are working feel very fortunate since they have been starving for the last 4 years. Some of the contractors that I interviewed are 1 to 2 months behind on their house payments and worried about foreclosure, just having a job to work on is a small sign of hope. So OSHA decides to make things better for them by making regular rounds to the job sites like Nazi’s entering Poland. These academic, pin heads with zero clue on how a house is put together in a semi-affordable manner are slapping fines on these poor guy’s that cost more than a new Ford diesel pickup truck. One contractor that I know personally, was fined $40,000.00 for not complying to regulations that were meant for large industrial environments. That was his first encounter with these revenue generators in over 30 years of being in the business. OSHA claims that over 37,000 emergency room visits per year are caused by nail guns, this is posted on OSHA’s website. Let’s look at some raw data here, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics 721,000 carpenters were in existence in 2008. Since then another 10% have lost their jobs, if my math is right that leaves 648,000 that are potential victims of nail gun injuries. That means that 1 in 20 carpenters get rushed to the e.r. for life threatening injuries every year. Since my background was in the construction industry, I happen to know more than 20 carpenters who use nail guns everyday. I will admit that even I have been slapped with an airborne nail, or drew some blood from curling trim nails, but I have only heard of 1 carpenter who had to have emergency medical attention from a nail gun accident. I would venture to say that OSHA is fabricating the truth to generate support for their totalitarian behavior. This is nothing more than a revenue generator from the back bones of people who actually work for a living.

Obama the New Jew

The King of America just pulled another flip-flop out from under his hijab, aka Muslim robe. Standing in front of the U.N. saying he doesn’t support Palestine in their efforts to join is mind-boggling. It was just a few weeks ago that he was in support of the Palestinians. As a matter of fact, he was also encouraging the Jews to stop developement of the West Bank. Do we think the election in New York, with the Jews coming out in droves to elect a Republican had anything to do with it? No, I don’t think a fine dictator like the King could be swayed by something like that. After all he did tell the Speaker of the House to put politics aside for the good of the Country.  This is just one more incident where his passion for dissing our allies has been curbed by the possibility of losing some votes.

Obama and His Billionaire Supporters

It seems odd to me that Obama’s class warfare stimulus package has attracted support from people like Warren Buffet and Mark Cuban. For years Buffet has had his past due tax bill held up in court under a dispute claim. If that is the case then why, does he think you and I have to pitch in more to Tax Cheat Timmy’s well run Treasury? Those Billionaires can easily get out their little pens and write a check made out to the U.S.Treasury, for some reason unknown to me they will not do it. Don’t get the wrong impression of me, I do not dislike people of wealth. Those folks earned it and probably work very hard to acquire the wealth that they possess. Even if they inherited it, someone worked for it, and no one should force them to hand it over to any government. Well, Obama and the big wealth distributing congress are different, after all Biden Is the new sheriff in town, he will make damn sure your hard-earned money is well accounted for. So, let’s all ante up to put a big smile on economic treasonist Obama’s face.
