Obama won’t Cut Big Bird, so What Will He Cut

Posted by madjillmom on October 11, 2012

Obama has continued to “lead from behind” on cuts to the federal government.  He has not used any political capital to push for reforms in entitlements and has stood by while the threat of sequestration threatens to decimate the military in a dangerous world.

Now Obama and his campaign is running around the country on our dime laughing it up about Big Bird and Elmo being in the crosshairs of Romney’s gun.  He won’t let that happen.  If he can’t bring himself to cut funding to PBS/Bill Moyers/Sesame Street how will he ever be able to deal with the really hard stuff like Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and Sequestration?  Where is his leadership? Is it too much to ask that he consider the actual future of our great country?

Free Obamaphones and Colonoscopies

Posted by madjillmom on September 28, 2012

This week a video went viral of a delightful black woman telling us all she is going to vote for Obama because he gives her a free phone.  This is indeed a stupid government program that was supposed to give phones to the needy that has mushroomed in price by double.  It buys votes.  Remember, our kids and grandkids will be paying for these “free” phones for a very long time.

Today, I see a Drudge post about Biden telling some old people in Boca Raton, FL, that Romney will take away their free colonoscopies if he is elected.  So if you want a free colonoscopy, don’t vote for Romney.  Once again, do I have to tell you that nothing is free.  Do the elderly need to be told that their grandchildren will be paying off this colonoscopy long after they are dead and buried?  I guess I do.

My proposal is to tie the two programs together.  In order to get a free Obamaphone, you should have to have a free colonoscopy.  Let’s see how many viral videos that will spew.

Throwing Granny Off a Cliff

Posted by madjillmom on June 1, 2011

A liberal group recently got a lot of press regarding an ad showing a Paul Ryan look-alike pushing Granny in a wheelchair off a cliff.  This should be the counter ad to that one.

A pack of grandmothers and grandfathers wheeling about on their hover-round chairs on a college quad.  They should be swinging lassos and admiring the chairs they have for “nothing out of pocket”.  Then a senior yells “There they come!”.  All  the medicare posse advances toward a group of students and lassos them.

Next scene. A few cattle trailers being filled by the students.  The trailers should be named High Tax Future, Enslavement, and Granny Doesn’t Love You Anymore.

Pan out with a Grey Headed Mean Granny saying “That will teach you to mess with my Medicare.”

Medicare is going to have to change for us Baby Boomers.  It will have to be means tested.  I hate that.  It punishes those who did the right thing and saved for their retirement.  We cannot keep up this generational theft.  Our children and grandchildren cannot be robbed of their futures.  All government entitlement programs will have to be scaled back to only those in the greatest need.
