Poor Babies

It’s disgusting watching these liberals bemoan the loss of one Senate seat. They act like it is the end of the world. They won’t be able to get through there precious socialized medicine. For Pete’s sake they had a super majority for a year. Don’t blame Republicans that you didn’t get your wildly unpopular bill in all its grandeur.

It was a pretty good deal for the libs. First they got a 1.2 trillion dollars in giveaways for their constituents. Most of which have gone to blue states. Since they haven’t spent all the TARP money they see that as another 400 billion dollars of “free money”. They are working overtime trying to figure out what to do with that.

Some of us still remember when a billion dollars was a lot of money.

I’m sure right now they are evaluating the bill to find, not the pieces will do the most good, but the pieces that will lay the foundation for “Great Society II”. For no money they could allow people to purchase health insurance across state lines. But they will go for expanding Medicare to a wider demographic. It will be about getting the governments foot in the door in as many new places as possible.

Don’t Do It

This may just be common sense to me but look at this package. I took this picture today at a local grocery store. To me this has all sorts of warning signs on it. First, it’s pre-spiced. It doesn’t just have a little tarragon sprinkled on it but a BBQ rub.  Usually they use a Cajun rub because it’s a better mask of smell. Think about it…why would they spice the chicken for you? Is it that hard for you to do yourself? They do it because this chicken is bad. It’s got a good stink to it and they are trying to hide if from the consumer.

Bad Chicken

You can’t see it but down in the lower right is the sell by date. It was yesterday. Butchers don’t want to ever EVER throw away meat. Instead they try to move it fast. They spice it up. They put it on special. When I see “Butchers Special” I hear “Salmonella Special”. Some butchers even change the sell by date.

NEVER BUY CHICKEN ON SPECIAL UNLESS THE SELL BY DATE IS FIVE DAYS AWAY! Even then be careful. No you probably won’t die. You may not even get sick but it’s just not worth it.

Butchers get serious pressure from grocery store management. They have to be profitable and they can’t afford to throw away product.

I imagine to most people this is obvious but to some young twenty something on a budget….it may be a life saver.

What do….

What do Venice Beach, Walmart and The Learning Channel have in common?

They are where you go to see freaks.

Massive shot to the ribs

I didn’t see this coming. What a huge win for liberals. We will now see unprecedented loaning to those who can’t afford it. It was a brilliant move by the Democrats. This is way better for them than the Great Society. Under the Great Society it was an assigned apartment; now the poor get a home and they even get to pick it out.

Fannie and Freddie’s Huge Christmas Bonus
By Larry Doyle

While Americans across the country hustled and bustled for last minute gifts and holiday preparations, our wizards in Washington tied a big red ribbon on a blank check made out to Freddie Mac (FRE) and Fannie Mae (FNM). In the process, a future of socialized housing finance has been increasingly solidified.

Why would the Obama administration pass this blank check under the cover of darkness on December 24th? In hopes that America had just settled down for its long winter’s nap and would miss this act of pillage and plunder. The Wall Street Journal highlights this ‘blank check’ in writing, U.S. Move to Cover Fannie, Freddie Losses Stirs Controversy:

The Obama administration’s decision to cover an unlimited amount of losses at the mortgage-finance giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac over the next three years stirred controversy over the holiday.
The Treasury announced Thursday it was removing the caps that limited the amount of available capital to the companies to $200 billion each.

Unlimited access to bailout funds through 2012 was “necessary for preserving the continued strength and stability of the mortgage market,” the Treasury said. Fannie and Freddie purchase or guarantee most U.S. home mortgages and have run up huge losses stemming from the worst wave of defaults since the 1930s.

“The timing of this executive order giving Fannie and Freddie a blank check is no coincidence,” said Rep. Spencer Bachus of Alabama, the ranking Republican on the House Financial Services Committee. He said the Christmas Eve announcement was designed “to prevent the general public from taking note.”

Let’s take note. Let’s ponder this development. What exactly does a blank check and unlimited access to bailout funds truly mean? I envision the following:
1. A total lack of discipline and accountability in the distribution of taxpayer funds.
2. A full government takeover of the U.S. housing finance industry.
3. A socialized housing policy and accompanying programs.

If those developments do not revile you enough, the blank check is also a confirmation of the following:
1. A failed housing policy developed and promoted over the last twenty years.
2. The true legacy of those who fed from the Freddie and Fannie trough during the last two decades. Which legislative leaders piled their plates the highest with Freddie’s and Fannie’s payoffs? John Kerry (D-MA), Chris Dodd (D-CT), and Barack Obama.

Are you sick yet?

Blank checks are no way to run a country!! Capitalism has been under assault all year long and this year end shot is the ultimate kick in the balls.

These bums must be thrown out.
