Disrespectin’ Obama and Gen. Stanley McChrystal

Posted by madjillmom on June 22, 2010

It is unsettling to see the process play out. Yes, General McChrystal is responsible for the “loose lips” of his staff that has resulted in the Rolling Stone report on disrespectin’ Pres. Obama. I know, it is against the rules for the military to speak out in this fashion. It was stupid. I have to think that under the stress of command in Afghanistan, the staff, in true bravado fashion, trash talked their bosses. It was incredibly stupid to do so within earshot of a publication that would like nothing better than to rat on the military. Now it will all play out on the world stage. People will be ruined. So sad.

I can’t help but think about the recent photos showing Obama staffers playing shirtless beer pong. They might have been trash talking their bosses. They did this while the ongoing crisis in the gulf was happening. While the President and his minions were telling us there was no greater urgency of the President and his staff, there are some of them shirtless and swilling beer. Just blowin’ off some steam while under pressure. Sorta like Pres. Obama needing to play golf at least once a week during this crisis.

Perhaps if Gen. McChrystal and staff had been shirtless swilling beer or on the golf course, it would have been excusable.

It is sad.

Obama’s Record on Jobs

Posted by madjillmom on June 18, 2010

Saw last night that the government payrolls have grown by 400,000 people while the private sector has lost 2.6 million jobs. Wow. How is that stimulus working out for us. I believe these were Bureau of Labor Statistics numbers.

The dems still believe that more stimulus is necessary. More taxes, more government spending. Less revenue, Social Security in the red 5 years before projection. Good work, Mr. President.

Offending the British

Posted by madjillmom on June 18, 2010

I guess that the congressional committee wanted to offend the populace of Britain. Not to mention screwing pensioners all other the world.

I believe they should have known that the BP’s people would not be able to say too much about their liability in the Oil Spill. No one should believe otherwise.

BP has more American employees than British employees.

Was it worth it to get your ugly mug on television, Mr. Waxman? I do not think so. Did it do anything to help the people of the gulf coast or stop the oil? No.

Obama Oil Spill Brain Trust Recommendations

Posted by madjillmom on June 17, 2010

One of the Oval Office speech points was that the President called together all the smartest experts to try to figure out what to do about the horrible, awful oil spill. Their recommendation somewhere around day 55 was essentially “Do more and go faster”. Thank goodness the President was wise enough to call upon this brain trust. Thank goodness it was a slow but giant oil leak and not a dirty bomb in a major city.

Sprinkling Bureaucrats on the Spill

Posted by madjillmom on June 16, 2010

Basically, Pres. Obama, orator of the century, is telling us that his only fix is a new level or bureaucrats and a few more committees. Wonder how much oil they will suck up?

Then about twice a day, another democrat or two advises him to confiscate BP or force the company not to pay a dividend. So what if this isn’t constitutional. Wait for the groundswell.

The AP fact checked the President’s speech. Not good for Obama.

Tax us all for innovation in the green energy movement. Throw confiscated money at various possibles. Make us pay through the nose. Kill off any anemic recovery. Do all this while China and India don’t stifle their economies and continue to pollute. Bring America to its knees. Why? What do they have to gain?

Confiscate an escrow fund from BP and turn it over to ACORN???? to administer? I don’t trust the Dems to not make that a political slush fund. Watcg who is put in charge of this boondoggle. Hold tight.

Way to go, Pres. Obama.

While we are concentrating on the oil spill, miss the bad news of the cost of Obamacare.

Throwing Rocks at Eric Holder

Posted by madjillmom on June 14, 2010

Say there is a Tea Party being held outside the Department of Justice. Attorney General Eric Holder leaves his building to go to a nearby lovely restaurant for a much needed break from dismissing cases against New Black Panthers harassing voters and such. A young Tea Party supporter who has been arrested several times for defending the Constitution picks up some big rocks and throws them at the Attorney General. Should the secret service men take down the rock thrower? Isn’t this deadly force?

Substitute the President for the Attorney General. Substitute the Border Patrol Agent for the President.

Small Video Cameras

Posted by madjillmom on June 14, 2010

A small handheld video camera is:

a drunk coeds worst nightmare
a defense against a bully
a tea party verification tool
video proof against false witness
like throwing water on the Wicked Witch of the West
a window to an old crone’s heart

I wish I had one and could use it when I feel like I need it. Especially since I am not now a drunk coed.

Congressman Assaults Student

Posted by madjillmom on June 14, 2010

The Democratic Congressman who assaulted a student has apologized. Of course, the apology implied that the student was partisan and intrusive. He doesn’t say that is what they were, just implies it. Is he afraid there is more Youtube video to show they just asked a reasonable question? I would encourage the students to file charges and sue for damages.

See this to see the original altercation and make up your own mind. North Carolina, send this guy back home. Maybe he can get a job at the local college as a rent-a-cop to harass students.

Pres. Obama Going Gray

Posted by madjillmom on June 14, 2010

A few clips I saw today showed noticeable gray in Obama’s short hair. This has happened before. Perhaps he is spending too much time on the golf course and it is bleaching it. Nah. This happens. But I predict that this time it will stay, not be “Just for Men”ed away. He needs it to show us all just how concerned he really is about this terrible situation, the ecological nightmare in the gulf. See, while he was golfing, his hair was showing us just how this is foremost on his mind.

BP, The President, Terrorism, and a Big Escrow Fund

Posted by madjillmom on June 14, 2010

The President used his pulpit this weekend to make a comparison of the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico to 9/11.

Yes, both of these things were terrible. Both impact many people. In 9/11, thousands died. In the BP catastrophe in the Gulf, 11 people died. The spill in the Gulf was not terrorism. It wasn’t even eco-terrorism. This was indeed a man-caused disaster. Can you see that, Janet Napolitano? It was quite probably negligence. We don’t have all the facts. The courts will decide this sometime in the future. It was an accident. No one at BP (or Haliburton or TransOcean) wanted this to happen. They are trying hard to fix it. I believe that they are trying hard in the face of animosity and ass-covering by the administration, to make people whole.  BP is not Bin Laden.

Now the Obama administration is demanding an escrow account be administered by other than BP to pay claims to those injured in this terrible time. OK. Should this happen? If the government oversees this fund, will we see lots of bogus claims and government credit cards used at Strip Clubs like we did after Katrina. Who will verify that claims are not fraudulent? The government that has been promising to stop the fraud at Medicare for years? How is that working out?

The liberals complain regularly that Bush used 9/11 to take away some of our freedoms. What is Obama doing with the Oil Spill? Carbon tax anyone? Retroactive laws anyone?

I know people are hurting. This stuff takes time. Claims will be paid. If they aren’t, further damages will be awarded. Interestingly, I went on the BP website for the spill. Claim forms come in three languages. English, Spanish, and Vietnamese. Why? If you are an illegal immigrant working at a gulf coast hotel, will the government demand you be paid wages lost?
