99 Weeks of Unemployment in the Mail

Nov 20 2011 Published by under salt

“…You take one down and cash it around, 99 weeks of unemployment in the mail.”

NewsBusters has a story on yet another liberal trotting out the tired meme that UI is “stimulative.”

Uh… No.  It’s a nice thing to do for people who are suffering under the boy tyrant.  But that’s a moral question.  As an economic question, it’s not “stimulative.”  It’s the oxygen tank people who have lung disease walk around with.  If they could sit still (perhaps at a desk at a job) they may not need it, but this is walking around oxygen.  One might even go another way and describe it a bender. Hangover tomorrow.

I actually have no problem in ObAmerica with 99 weeks of unemployment, but it’s not stimulative.  I regard it as treading water until Obama’s removed from office.  Under any other President 99 weeks would be very, very, very long.  But this guy?  No way anyone’s hiring until he’s gone, so let ‘em have it.  But, again, it’s a flat-out lie that it’s “stimulative.”  It’s treading water.  It’s circular breathing. It’s keeping status quo, then paying for it later. Let’s test out the theory to prove I’m right.


Surely between week 1 and week 99 we’ll see a change in America’s economy, with all this “stimulation” right? Something lasting, meaningful, right?

Let’s see:

1. Nope.

1. The President is not King. He may speak to a Joint Session of Congress at THEIR pleasure, not his.

2. The White House knows this and knew exactly what they were doing when the booked Bam-Bam the same day and at the exact hour the loooong scheduled GOP debate was being held. If the WH did NOT know this they should be fired for incompetence.

3. This speech is nothing more than A-roll for a 2012 campaign commercial. That’s (partly) why Speaker Boehner rebuffed Bam-Bam with the BRILLIANTLY crafted letter suggesting he speak on opening night of football season instead. For that ALONE, I will always have a warm place in my heart for the gentleman from Ohio.

4. GUARANTEED there will be NOTHING NEW in it. Say it with me: “NOTHING.” Heck, let’s spell it: N-O-T-H-I-N-G. You can’t COUNT how NOTHING new-ish this speech will be. There are no negative numbers low enough. NONE.

5. I’m offended as an American that the current occupant of the WH cheapens his office by calling a Joint Session for this happy horseh*t.

GOP Candidates MUST Paint the Picture!

Aug 26 2011 Published by under salt

Why isn’t American business hiring?  

Because I have to look someone in the eye and shake their hand.  I take my responsibility to pay very seriously.  I’ve got a President swearing up and down he’s going to tax people like me more.  I’ve got a President who said, very matter of factly, that my utilities costs to keep the lights on in my business will ‘necessarily skyrocket.’  He’s a threat to my business.  Until the threat is gone, I’m not going to risk everything I’ve busted my ass for by inviting another man (or woman) to join me on the Titanic if it all sinks in ObAmerica.  No. I’m in survival mode right now.  I’m treading water.

Somebody needs to say that – OVER & OVER AGAIN.
