Bloviating Zeppelin: "Stimulus" Package?

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

"Stimulus" Package?

Where, I ask, in the $1 TRILLION dollar package (to acquire a vote today!), is the "stimulus" in the $4.19 BILLION dollars proposed for ACORN? If ACORN gets this money, it is nothing more than a sure-fire way to profligate not only more and more Demorats, but more persons with outstretched hands.

And, since this proposed stimulus package mostly doesn't, is everyone aware that ANOTHER stimulus package is already being pushed?

And if anyone is serious about a true stimulus as opposed to a proposal rife with pork ($200 million for the beautification of the National Mall, including $21 million for sod; over $200 million for contraceptives and the abortion industry; $650 million for digital TV coupons; $136 billion for the creation of at least 32 new government programs – as Representative Boehner’s website explains, more than a third of H.R.1’s spending provisions would go towards growing the government—not the economy; $600 million for new cars for the federal bureaucrats; $50 million for the National Endowment of the Arts; $6 billion for colleges and universities; $300 billion to bail out state governments; increased spending on over 150 different federal programs; $335 million for for sexually transmitted disease education and prevention programs), why not enable the obvious (which is screaming to be considered): tax breaks for the middle class and business? Oh no no no, can't consider that -- a tax break for business only benefits tyrannical white male oppressors -- despite the fact that small business employs most of the persons in this country -- and we can't give hope or reprieve to those persons on whom we must count for government's bailout: the basic taxpayer.

Then, on the other hand, in the midst of all this, the really serious issues must be considered, like the Demorat petition to censor Rush Limbaugh, which has conveniently been placed online. Now that's one helluva priority, majority party.

The GOP can't be left out of this equation, so they became offended when, on his show, Limbaugh said President Obama is “obviously more frightened of me than he is Mitch McConnell. He's more frightened of me, than he is of, say, John Boehner, which doesn't say much about our party."

Sorry if the truth happens to wound.

Perhaps this is a time to reiterate from my prior post: 1) Alinsky's Rules #5, 6, 8, 10 and 12; -- and 2) Goebbels quote of "It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Finally, I should like to observe: whilst researching this post about the stimulus package, I attempted to acquire the NRCC (National Republican Congressional Committee) website for insight. The problem was, I couldn't go anywhere on that site without first taking a survey and then mandatorily submitting my e-mail address and zip code. Oh, I take it back: I could go one other place on the site -- I could click on DONATE.

Let me be blunt: you are making no, and I mean no friends, GOP, when you set up a home page where it is crystal clear that all you want is an e-mail address for more cash demands. Contributions to you, NRCC? No. Not when you play that little trick.

Plus, allow me to add this little tidbit: it is hinted that the GOP is going to go again with Robert "Mike" Duncan as RNC Chairman.

Uh, like he did so wonderfully this past year?

One more time, I will put you on notice, RNC: just when I was thinking about donating again, if you leave Hunter in place and refuse to install new blood in the form of, say, Michael Steele, you can kiss any future cash from me quite fare-thee-well.

There HAS to be a change, GOP and, right now, I'm not much impressed. Complaining about Limbaugh? Give me a break.

Do your jobs.

They could do more to stimulate the economy by just taking that 1 trillion dollars and sending a check to every (working, tax-paying) American.

Excellent post.

Others have suggested that in jest but, at this point, it would be in my opinion (and yours!) EVERY bit as stimulative in the real world but, unfortunately, would REMOVE the POWER from government by doing so.

Thanks for visiting and thanks for the comment!

Well seeing as it's our money that would make sense. his whole thing makes me want to puke. The pork in this "stimulus" bill is beyond the pale.

It's my belief, BZ, that Obama committed to memory everything Alinsky ever wrote and put it into practice. He also only directs Republicans to stop listening to Limbaugh because he fears him. God bless Rush for telling it like it is. There are far too few voices with large audiences who do!

Gayle: Which is why the perception becomes reality, that Limbaugh truly IS more dangerous than any of the spinally-challenged GOP.

Excellent Post! I had no idea there was that much pork. I knew about Acorn and the contraceptive crud, but this is BEYOND the pale.

Your every day common housewife would be a better pick for the Senate and the House than what we have in there now. For crying out loud. We have to take our country back from these crooked people!

There are supposedly only 5 million homes in danger of forclosure in the nex 2 yrs. If each one of those loans were offered a govt loan from the 1.175trillion (3.5 tarp and 8.25 new request) at even ZERO percent they would get 28000 each. Make the loan bankrupcy proof to come off the top when the home sells the public would at least get the money back. The "bad" loans all the banks hold would now be good, the real estate prices would stabilize, the loan holders would be getting money to loan out thru the payments. Im sorry but no amount of road and windmill building or prok will have that effect.

Incidentally, I just went to the DNCC website and inserted my OWN comments, which read:

"Problem? Yes indeed, there's a problem. There's a problem when the Democrats take a page right out of Saul Alinsky's 'Rules For Radicals' and specifically Josephs Goebbels notebook, the portion which reads:

"It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Your governmental attempted suppression of an individual private citizen, Mr Limbaugh, via petition, so-called "Fairness Doctrine" or otherwise -- ANY governmental attempt to silence dissent -- ANY chip taken out of the First Amendment -- is both frightening and reprehensible."

BZ, the country sits on national debt equal to 4 years worth of revenue right now. If left unchecked, that will be closer to 6 years by the time we vote that pompous asshole out of office! We would need to not spend a friggin nickel for 7 years to pay it off (with the interest)! Anyone already alive, including new borns, WILL NEVER SEE THAT BILL PAID! That should scare the bejesus out of every single American citizen, but only conservatives even have a clue.

CC: why not.

AA: I remain unconvinced that "every single American citizen" is sufficiently intelligent to draw that Capt. Obvious-type conclusion.

The two people the Donks fear the worst appear to be Rush and Sarah. That's the team, one in office and one speaking daily to America. Let's give em hell.

Republicans are not going to vote for anything the Democrats put forward, that’s a given.

My advice to Democrats, forget the Republicans they’re irrelevant, you don’t need them and that includes Rush.

With that said, I applaud all who voted against this bill today.

The stimulus package is theft. Plain and simple. The majority of Americans don't agree with their money going towards bailing out these companies that were bound to fail anyway. This is sick foulness. And as I have said before, President Obama is charismatic and so forth, but he has absolutely NO clue on how to FIX this economy. OH wait a minute yes he does. He will turn us into the United States Socialist Republic. God help us.

Am the only perv who sees the crazy sexual inuendo in this issue?

Maybe it's just me.

I'm done with it anyway!

Ranando: why, that would include all the Dems. And ALL the Republicans, oddly enough, voted against it. Guess you're pulling for the GOP?

Mahndisa: theft? Yes, precisely.

PCC: but it's not done with you.

I guess the only thing that surprises me is that there are some "red" states on that map getting a heftier piece of the pie. What's up with that?
