Tax the Rich and Call Me In the Morning

Posted by madjillmom on September 10, 2012

Obama is running around the country with a new funny line.  He says Republicans/Romney/Ryan only answer to the economy is tax cuts.  Got a headache, take two tax cuts, cut some regulations and call me in the morning. LOL. Remember when his favorite funny thing was the car in the ditch thing.  Then he went all “moving forward, not stopping, not asking directions” at the end of his acceptance speech. All I could think was moving forward, not stopping, off the cliff that is our debt.

So, let’s turn it around. Obama has only one prescription for what ails us:

  • Got 16 trillion in debt, tax the rich.
  • Got 15% unemployment/underemployment? Tax the rich.
  • Need to do something about sequestration? No problem, tax the rich.
  • Government running out of money? Tax the rich.
  • Teacher Strike in Chicago? Tax Buffett and me.
  • Things will be great just like in the 90’s if we just tax the rich. I’m just like Clinton, except for that moderate thing.
  • Stimulus didn’t work.  Solydra was a bad gamble like a lot of others. No problem, just tax the rich.
  • Just got back from a great trip abroad with your boyfriend, and can’t afford $9 for your birth control.  Don’t worry, I really want to tax the rich. That will fix women’s issues because Romney hates women and Ryan will cause more women to die in the emergency room.

Remember, taxing the rich will result in 8 days of money for our bloated government.  This won’t make a difference and will result in lower tax revenues.  That means more unemployment. Meanwhile, Obama/Biden are driving us right off the cliff. The pot is calling the kettle black.  Whoops, that is racist.

Obama/Biden and the Jobs Council

Posted by madjillmom on September 8, 2012

Remember a few months ago when we learned that Obama’s much vaunted Jobs Council, the wise minds he called together to give him counsel on the best way for government to help create jobs, hasn’t met with him since January. Well, not only has he not met with them, but neither he or Biden have read any of the recommendations from this vaunted council. You see, they recommend a “Territorial Tax” as a good way to help American companies be competitive and grow. So Biden, known as Sheriff Joe Plugs for not letting any stimulus money get misused and wasted, spoke of this tax as a bad Romney plan the other night at the Democrat’s Convention.

Obama and Biden are both idiots. Everyone on the jobs council should send in their resignations (including Ken Chenault, CEO of American Express, the company my husband worked at for 28 years until he was laid off last year. He still works for American Express, but as a temporary worker with no benefits.)

Obama has no earthly idea how to be business friendly so that jobs are created. He rarely meets with his Cabinet and the Jobs Council is only window dressing. Kinda like the Simpson Bowles Commission Report that Obama/Biden didn’t fight for or probably even read. Evidently, Obama was cleaning off his desk the other day and he found a dusty copy of their recommendations. So he mentioned his “support” of the recommendations in his acceptance speech.  Both Simpson and Bowles fell out of their chairs after a strange coughing fit overtook them.

Obama’s Biggest Mistake

Posted by madjillmom on July 13, 2012

It wasn’t pushing through Obamacare with no bi-partisan votes. It wasn’t letting the Dems write-up a ridiculous Stimulus package that didn’t do the job and indebted our children and our children’s children. It wasn’t his evolving flip-flops on gay marriage. It wasn’t his arrogance when meeting with the opposition and telling them tough nouggies, “I won”. It wasn’t winning the Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing. It wasn’t his apology tour. It wasn’t backing the Arab Spring to an Islamic nightmare. It wasn’t speaking about “police acting stupidly” before you knew the facts. It wasn’t expensive vacations in Martha’s Vineyard.  It wasn’t polling to get a dog. It wasn’t throwing contract law out the window and screwing the GM and Chrysler bondholders in favor of the UAW. It isn’t his penchant for taking credit for the good and blaming Bush for all the bad. It isn’t the crappy unemployment numbers and the college graduates working as janitors. It isn’t more people on food stamps and disability than ever before. It isn’t ten programs instituted to help the housing/foreclosure crisis that do nothing but extend the pain and agony. It isn’t his genuine inability to understand what creates a job. No, none of that.

It was the fact that he didn’t TALK ENOUGH and give us stupid people a better storyline of his fabulous policies. If he can just talk enough, we will re-elect him.  Gosh, his analysis is so spot on.

Plus don’t forget, Romney is rich.

Bain Capital vs. Obama

Posted by madjillmom on May 23, 2012

Which seems to be the more fair?

Mitt Romney gets funding from individuals and pools that money to invest in companies, using those funds to save some companies and to sell off others that aren’t so strong. At weak companies, people are laid off, companies are restructured, and sometimes, they are sold off at a profit.

President Obama takes taxpayer funds and funds borrowed from China and our children and grandchildren.  Then he and his cabinet find friends and other cronies and they hand out money to questionable “green” companies by the bucketful.  Minimal very temporary jobs are created and the Energy Secretary changes the law so that some of that money goes straight to Obama supporters in payback.  Now the taxpayer has nothing to show for Obama’s leadership and stewardship of taxpayer’s money.  The much touted jobs are now gone.  People who thought they had a good job are laid off.  Companies are bankrupt and the taxpayer is screwed.

Which scenario shows real leadership?

Zero Unemployment

Posted by madjillmom on May 4, 2012

If we want 0% unemployment, all those looking for jobs should just quit looking for jobs.  That is what happened today.  Jobs created were about 120,000.  That is a massively anemic number.  The reason that the bogus unemployment number ticked down 1/10 of 1% was because 3 time the jobs number totally dropped out of the employment market.  So, if you want Obama to bask in good numbers, stop looking for work.  Statistics are an amazing thing.

Obama = Government

Posted by madjillmom on April 23, 2012

I just listened to PresBO’s speech at the DC Holocaust Museum.  In the speech, Obama takes credit for trying to prevent holocausts in our current day.  He tends to take personal credit for such things. “I have sent…”,  “I took action…”, “I appointed a committee to keep women from being raped in war…”, “I sent troops to help capture Koney in Africa…”.  All this personalization of government is a peril for Obama.  In the wake of the GSA scandal, the Secret Service Scandal, the bloated stimulus being handed out to bankrupt solar firms, never-ending waste and fraud, bad choices after bad choices.  Obama is the first to claim credit and the first to assess blame to others for bad choices.

Obama’s push to take credit for all things government may bite him on the ass as people are increasingly do not trust the government to do the right thing.

Government Waste and the Budgeting Process

Posted by madjillmom on April 17, 2012

As more and more details come out about the abuse of taxpayer’s money in the GSA, I have begun to wonder about the quality of the workers throughout the government.  It seems that the people at the GSA came up with so many ways to waste the money entrusted to them.  This is in part because all government agencies get more money every year.  There are no real cuts to anything, just reductions in the increases.  As a result, they need to come up with ingenious and stupid ideas to spend the funds.

I truly believe that if there were real cuts, the workers would use their ingenuity to actually work to save money in their agencies.  If an agency had an actual cut in funding, the people working there would begin to value cost cutting and would work hard to make sure their divisions show actual productivity for less taxpayer dollars.

When responsible people see less money coming in, they cut the premium channels on the cable, buy generic, keep their cars for a few more years,and cut vacations or extravagances.  Of course, some people have worked in this wasteful culture for too long to ever be able to figure out how to run lean and productive.

What I am saying is basically make real cuts.  The government can change if we make actual cuts.  Cut every agency back to 2007 levels.  Cut each agency by 5% now.

QUIT WHINING AND STARVE THE BEAST!

Pres. Obama, where are your cuts?

White House Women’s Forum

Posted by madjillmom on April 6, 2012

I just went to the whitehouse.gov website to read PresBO’s address to the trumpeted White House Women’s Forum.  First, I wanted to know who was attending.  That isn’t listed on the website as far as I can see.  I did go to #WomenEconForum on twitter and the posts were 9 to 1 against the Obama plan.  Then I read over the speech he gave.

It consisted of this approximately:

Blah, blah, blah, women creating chaos…  I married a great woman, but now I am outnumbered…   That is why I have a dog,,. Equal Pay, Republicans want you barefoot and pregnant… Then something about dry cleaning…

Thank goodness he talks to us.  We are so important to him.  He wants our votes.

I am a woman.  PresBO having a women’s forum in the White House does nothing to help me.  It gives Obama a chance to give a speech, but it doesn’t get my husband, myself, or my college graduate son living at home a job.  It doesn’t fill up my gas tank or bring down the cost of hamburger meat.  Perhaps the forum had some seminar on cooking for your twenty somethings on a budget.

By the way, I could have watched the forum online.  But the stimulus money that was supposed to help eliminate the rural digital divide was used by some B grade actors to produce a soap opera only available on the internet.  Strangely, I can’t watch that video of the forum or the soap opera because my internet is too slow and expensive to do that.  Thank you massive stimulus plan and Joe Biden for making sure the money was spent wisely.

Happy Birthday, Pres. Obama’s Stimulus Bill

Posted by madjillmom on February 17, 2012

It’s been three years.  Wow, how time flies when you’re going bankrupt. The stimulus was over-promised and under-performing, with lots of waste and bogus numbers attached to it throughout the 3 years.   For the first 2 years, Democrats said it wasn’t working as well as it should because it wasn’t big enough.

Then, for the last year or so, no one mentions it on the Dem side, because it is just an embarrassment of Solyndra’s and bloated welfare rolls.  The ongoing Recovery summer turned into Recovery Summer: The Crappy Sequel  and so on with charts and weak evidence that happy days are just around the next set of confusing numbers and stats.  For every trending up category, there is a opposite set of numbers showing that things might not ever be as good as it was years ago.

The new Dem argument is basically this:

We put the economy on drugs and produced this weak-ass, jobless economy and PresBO’s budget keeps raising spending because the economy needs the drugs and we will crash and burn if we don’t keep injecting the drugs taxpayer’s money into the arm of the anemic economy. Cuts in government spending will cut off the supply of drugs to the economy. We need to keep the economy limping along, spinning the bad, lauding the good until PresBO is re-elected.

Then what? Let’s don’t find out, please.

Obama’s Stimulus Jobs cost $242,000 each

Posted by madjillmom on November 23, 2011

Remember the $800 billion stimulus that came in Obama’s first month as President.  It was a Democratic Gimme List shoved through with a promise that unemployment would not go over 8% if passed.  Obama’s experts told us this.  Flash forward three years.

Politico has an article about the Congressional Budget Office numbers regarding jobs and that first stimulus.  Turns out, under the best possible scenario, the stimulus provided 3.3 million jobs.  At worst, it provided 500 thousand.  These are pretty broad highs and lows.  So, lets use the rosiest scenario of 3.3 million jobs.  The cost of each job was around $242,000 each.  The “experts” around Obama like to tell us that taxpayer government money handed out in stimulus has a multiplier effect over the actual amount handed out.  In other words, $1 handed out by the government really benefits us by the tune of $1.50 in magic ways.  So, $242000 should have given us 5 straight up decent jobs at about $48,000 per person.  With the multiplier effect, it should have been about 6 decent jobs – teacher jobs, fireman jobs, policeman jobs.  So, by my estimation, the stimulus should have resulted in about 6 jobs instead of the one job per $242,000.  That would be 3.3 million times 6. That would be 19.8 million jobs rather than a puny 3.3 million jobs.  Epic fail, Obama.

Of course, after seeing how the first stimulus worked out the only real thing to do is try again with another stimulus under the guise of Obama’s Can’t Wait Jobs Bill.
