Crap. I agree With Obama

Today, President Obama actually said something that I praised. He wants to hold teachers accountable by allowing merit pay.

Imagine that. A teacher would get paid based upon results. He also said if a teacher repeatedly fails, they should no longer be teaching. I agree whole-heartedly. But I doubt the unions will let it happen.

As well, for all of his pro-education rhetoric he is still going to sign a bill that repeals the voucher program that helps hundreds of low-income D.C. kids get an education from the same school as the Obama girls.

Why is that? Maybe because he is pandering with his words (again) and doing the opposite with his actions (again)?

Let us see how this goes.

Al Gore Refuses To Melt

I am against the idea that man has made global warming- err, I mean global CLIMATE CHANGE – worse because of his incessant need to spew CO2 gas into the atmosphere.

I cannot stand Al Gore and his continual drumming of the false facts. Fortunately I am not alone.

I Am A Bad American

[H/T: My Dad. Thanks!]

I am an American.

I believe in God.

I ride Harley Davidson Motorcycles and believe in American products.

I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some Liberal governmental functionary be it Democratic or Republican!

I'm in touch with my feelings and I like it that way!

I think owning a gun doesn't make you a killer, it makes you a smart American.

I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to anything. Get over it!

I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac, do it in English.

I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to.

My heroes are John Wayne, Babe Ruth, Roy Rogers, and Willie G. Davidson.

I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor.

I know wrestling is fake and I don't waste my time watching or arguing about it.

I've never owned a slave, or was a slave, I haven't burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks and neither have you! Shut up already.

I believe if you don't like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country!

If you were born here and don't like it you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you.

I want to know exactly at which church the Reverend Jesse Jackson preaches, where he gets his money, and why he is always part of the problem and not the solution.

I think the police have the right to pull you over if you're breaking the law, regardless of what color you are.

I don't mind having my face shown on my drivers license. I think it's good.

I'm proud that 'God' is written on my money.

I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don't want you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years.

I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making 'donations' to their cause. Get a Job and do your part!

I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents.

I believe 'illegal' is illegal no matter what the lawyers think.

I believe the American flag should be the only one allowed in AMERICA ! If you are so proud of your old country, feel free to return (with the flag).

If this makes me a BAD American, then yes, I'm a BAD American.

Stop Picking On Undocumented Workers

After all, what harm is there in having a few illegal persons doing work for good old Uncle Sam? Does this not help the economy go?

Well, let us start with Health Care Costs. Then, let us look at the USA Today, who actually have decided to let people know how many illegal alien jobs the so-called stimulus bill will save.

I guess since many illegals are returning to Mexico due to job loss, the Obama folks are just doing their part to help save the voter base.

More Pro-Life Killing

Everyone thought that President Bush banned stem-cell research. Nothing is farther from the truth. What the former-president DID do was to ban the use of FEDERAL money from being used.

Now I know that there are some out there who will wonder what is the big deal? Ask someone who is vehemently pro-life, however. I, am not. I am pro-life to be sure. I think abortion is wrong in all cases except the life or death of the mother, but I am not rabidly insane about it.

I AM rabidly insane about my money, however. Why should more of my money be taken so that science can get federal money? Private industry can drive it more efficiently, and only those who WANT to contribute need to. Now, I have no choice.

After today, Glorious Leader will repeal the rules set down by President Bush. Of course, it is ‘all for the people’. After all, we need this research to find cures for all manner of  disease and illness.

Does it matter that we are already some of the most taxed people in the world? Nope. If they now are going to provide money to this area of science, it has to come from somewhere. So, either they are going to cut funds from somewhere (which program will get the axe?) or they are going to have to raise it through taxes.

My gut instinct tells me that they will get the money from the defense cuts. The left will logically say “Well, when we stop spending all of that money in Iraq…” to which I say- the money to Iraq is in addition to normal spending. You say we are spending too much because it is going to liberate a country (I mean, get all that oil revenue) but taking that ADDED spending and making it permanent is ok. Does it still not cause us massive deficits? Not to mention that this repealing will allow aborted babies to be used in the stem cell research.

Yep, Save the trees, save the seals, save the titmouse.. but helpless unborn can be murdered at will.

Oh well. They cannot vote, so why do they matter?

Iowa A Casualty Of Obanomic Cap n Trade

From the Jawa Report:

Cap and Trade appears to have a lot to do with this

NEW YORK, March 5 (Reuters) - Alliant Energy Corp's Interstate Power and Light Co on Thursday said it canceled plans to construct the proposed 649-megawatt Sutherland 4 coal-fired power plant in Iowa.

The Madison, Wisconsin-based company said in a release it canceled the project based on several factors including, the current economic and financial climate, increasing uncertainty regarding regulation of greenhouse gas emissions and the terms placed on the plant by regulators.

Thank the Obama administration for this.

I Am A Conservative Republican

[H/T: AlphonZo Rachel and his YouTube video. It prompted me to write this.]

I believe that life begins at conception and the taking of an innocent life is not a religious issue, it is a moral issue.

I believe in the separation of Church and State, but not the absence of God from the public place.

I believe that America is the land of equal opportunity, but not the land of equal results.

I believe that what is mine is mine, not something to be confiscated and spread around for all to share.

I believe that it is the job of the judicial branch to enforce the constitution, not to legislate a new one.

I believe that we have the capability to provide our own energy quickly, safely and cost effectively. Oversight yes; Industry killing regulation no.

I reject the mentality that the right to bear arms only applies to state militia. It is the people’s path to protecting themselves from a tyrannical government.

I reject that America is a collection of individual cultures. I embrace that America is its OWN culture that should be promoted, vaunted and celebrated.

I reject the notion that government is the end-all means to prosperity. I embrace the idea that free markets work best in driving the economy.

I believe that it is the government’s job to serve and protect the people; to enact policies that enable me to succeed and then get out of my way.

So Much For Will Of The People

So California voted in November. They elected to pass a resolution that banned gay marriage. It is in the California constitution that its people can do so.

Of course, as is with our very own federal government, the constitution is merely a piece of paper to be legislatively or judicially circumvented whenever possible.

Your vote no longer counts in California, so why even bother?

I guess all we need to do is start publishing the names of everyone who supported the anti-prop measures. Stage boycotts. Harass and spit on them. Physically assault them

Maybe then our voices will be heard?

The Real Obanomic Numbers

This post is targeted toward those for whom I originally started this blog. Most of them (us) are nowhere near the Obama target of $250K, so the whole raising of tax stuff does not affect us to any great extent.

I want to add a caveat, though, that when the Bush tax cuts are allowed to lapse in 2011, ALL of us with children will get affected, as the (now) $1000 credit per child (as a single example) will be reduced to pre-cut rates ($800).

So anyway, the top marginal rate is 35%. Pretty high, compared to my meager rate of about 15%. Obama plans to raise this to Clinton-era rates of 39.6% Again, that doesn’t seem like much, right? A meager 4.6%? I mean, a paltry $46 per $1000 made is forked over.

Recall though, that these are not the entire number. Check out the real scoop from a tax expert as reported by Michelle Malkin:

… while it may be true that under Obama the marginal effect is only 2, 4, or 6% (depending on what actually passes from his budget), I think the greater effect is the psychological line that Obama has so clearly drawn in the sand. If the tax rates are adjusted so that someone making 250,000 is taxed at 39.6%, if this person is self-employed, they are looking at a total tax rate of up to 61.4% on each dollar over $250,000. [61.4% = Federal Income Tax (39.6), State Rate (up to 10.3% in California), and self-employment tax rate (roughly 11.5% when you take into account your deduction for ½ of the self-employment tax)].

I am a tax accountant, don’t consider myself to be an idiot, and I am right in Obama’s income target range. I will be joining those looking to limit hours worked so as not to enter that 60% territory. Part of the motivation will be the self satisfaction of not contributing to the socialist cause.

So as he taxes those with high income (which by the way is not very high if you live in New York) and those people decide to stop working. So they cut jobs, cut profit, hurt the economy and then force those who cannot realistically cut enough profit to pay an even higher percentage of the tax. Recall that the top 2% of Americans pay the largest portion of the tax burden- now they will pay even more.

Obama Team Can Only See 4 Months Ahead

Ok, maybe the title is an exaggeration. However, check out the new Obama site.

According to VP Joe Biden, the website NUMBER is http://www.recovery.gov

First, notice the pretty new logo. Michelle Malkin has some more fitting logos, but what I found most interesting is the timeline. With $500 million in campaign funds accumulated and the entire weight of the Federal Government behind them, Obama can only project his porkulus plan out to July 15, 2009? Why can we not see the REAL numbers out to 2019?

What a joke. I could have done something faster and more accurate by myself, given the resources available to him.

Once again we see how inept he is at leading. Get it rammed through. get it NOW NOW NOW. Who cares if it is accurate or professional. We DID something. We have SHOWN the American people we are bold men of action!

The Artful Dodger

That is the new name for Timothy Geithner, though it may be considered slanderous to the original Dicken's character.

Dr. Helen has a great bit about how those who are honest and hardworking are demonized as tax dodgers when people like Geithner are given a pass.

I don't think we really need any more proof about the bias in the media, but this one is dead-on accurate.

Obama Dis’s Number One Ally

So first, when Obama gets into the Oval Office, he sees a statue of Winston Churchill. It was a gift from Britain after 9-11. Does he embrace the legacy of this great man? Does he speak to the honor of all men fighting tyranny during that time? Does he hire someone to dust the great edifice down?

Nope. He sends it back, saying he does not want it in his oval office. (Well, in actuality he had them put it in the US Embassy in Britain.)

Now, when the British prime minister AND HIS WIFE visit for the FIRST TIME, Al-Queada’s favorite American said there would be no traditional press conference and there would be no meeting of the first families.

Great. His first press conference is to an Arab news station and he snubs our number one ally in the world.

Japan Sees The Light

UPDATE: Read here, and here, and here (in Japanese).

Global Warming my ass.

Leading Japanese scientists, including astrophysicists, arctic experts and multi-level modeling scientists have completed a study that now says the earth is going through normal cyclic temperatures and is not an anomaly as claimed by eco-freaks.

But. Were. They. Ever. Vice. President. Of. the. United. States?

I thought so.

Scientists. Who the hell do they think they are? The sun is merely there to provide a place for the constellations to revolve around. It has NOTHING to do with warming the planet.

Why The Education System Sucks

Look at Detroit and the UAW (United Auto Workers Union). One need look no further to understand why the education system is in such a shambles. They are unions. And unions are killing almost every industry they run.

The NEA (National Education Association) works hard to prevent any reform of education whatsoever. Its lone beating mantra is more money for teachers, more money for teachers, and more money for teachers. Why would they want more teachers?

They will then have more dues paying members, of course.

But let there be real reform. How about merit pay instead of contracted pay? People are so paranoid that the EVIL school boards will rip off the POOR teachers. But under contract, the board is forced to pay a crappy teacher the same as a teacher willing to put in extra effort and who has proven results.

In LA, when most of the schools received failing grades, the local NEA blocked the board’s attempt to institute merit pay for teachers, saying that it would be ‘a cold day in hell’ when they allowed that sort of reform to occur.

When the St. Petersburg Times asked Pinellas Classroom Teachers Association executive director Jade Moore why few teachers were signing up for the merit pay program the union helped design for the school district, Moore replied, “Our goal was to make it nearly impossible.

Imagine that. A union whose sole purpose is to extort dues from its members and block education reform.

Don’t get me wrong. At one time in our history unions played a valuable part. But with modern society, myriad of new laws governing the workplace, the time for unions is over. All they do is strip the employer of any ability to make a profit or function freely. Look at the auto workers who get 95% pay even when laid off. Or the teacher who is so crappy and involved with scandal that he is removed from the classroom- and moved to an office with the school board at the same pay he was getting as a teacher, because the union contract prevented his dismissal.

People are crying out about the budget cuts. What is the answer? Give the schools more federal funding? When does the begging stop? I am all for federal subsidies for education. It is one of the few areas where I am FOR federal money.

But look at D.C. They have a voucher scholarship program that allows kids to go to private schools. D.C, OUR CAPITAL has some of the worst schools in the country. And with his new $410 billion bill, Obama is cutting the program funding and forcing all of those poor kids back into the crappy public schools.

For the children my ass. It is all about keeping people ignorant and uneducated so they won’t have a clue what is really being done to them.

Government Moves To Control Charities

Did you know?

In the latest legislation being pushed through congress, those making over $250K cannot claim as much charitable giving as they once did. In other words, if you normally give a lot to charity, and claim it on your taxes (because it is a good deduction and you get it back, thus helping reduce your tax burden) you will not get as much back as you once did.

Why is that? So the government can get more of your money, of course.

However, administration officials say that it is because the government has written more charitable giving into the legislation, so Americans are not ‘burdened’ with it.

Ah yes. So, like the banks, if you are a charity organization, you can get money from good old Barney Frank.

But at what cost?

Remember, Women Are Property

Of course, we must be tolerant and accepting of their religion, even though there is nothing at all accepting or peace-enabling about theirs.

In fact, in Malaysia the Christians cannot use the word Allah in their publications because ‘there might be confusion’ according to the government.

Yeah. Wouldn’t want THEM to read or understand/tolerate US.
