Barack the Magic Negro

Here we go- an audio CD being given out by a nominee for the job of Chairman of the GOP National Convention included a song called 'Barack the Magic Negro'. Yep, that's right! Funny thing is, it's over a year old, and they're just now noticing it!

You can see the video on this page. :)

I don't feel like blogging

Really, I don't. All the news is just too depressing. It was too depressing yesterday also. I don't know...the auto bailout bill passed the House, and President-elect Obama is trying to push it through the Senate.

You know, it's the fault of all these unions. Let's just get rid of them, then we'll all be better off. There's no reason for them anyway.

So I better go now...before I make myself really sick. 'Night!

Yet more Fed aid requested...

Yup, we all saw this one coming! With the 'Big 3' in Washington, all the other auto makers have decided to get in on this deal of the century. And not just auto makers- cities, steel producers, and hundreds of other industries and manufacturers have virtually run into DC, all eager for a handout.

Metal forming companies, auto glass companies, and many other car-material suppliers came flocking in, stating that they too required money!

Individuals are even hoping to cash in big on this loan frenzy- a group of retired auto mechanics came into DC and asked for an interview with Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala).

Governors are hoping to get in on the deal too- asking the Fed to give their respective states loans.

When, oh when, will this loan binge end?!

Today's Time-Out

Well, time for a little silliness to end the day...what about this story?

An African man, coming into the country, was stopped when sniffer dogs found three smoked monkeys in his bag, along with some venison and beef, which are all common food products in Africa. The gentleman was stopped, his meat was confiscated, and he was sent on his way.

Apparently, bringing in monkey meat, or any kind of meat for that matter, is illegal in this, our wonderful ole' USA.

You can read the entire story here.

The Auto Bailout

As most of you know, the congress is considering a bailout/handout for the auto companies, to the tune of $15 billion.

General Motors, Chrysler, and Ford are cashing in big on this deal- each of them petitioning the Fed to give them money! Their biggest allies- the Democrats, predictably- are pushing for this bill to pass the house as quickly as possible.

Beyond this, a provision is being made in the bill to allow the President to have unlimited 'dip-in' powers to get as much as he needs from the treasury to cover any future needs of the auto companies! To put that in perspective, GM has stated that it would like- and 'needs'- at least $15 billion, and Chrysler could sure use an extra $4 billion in it's coffers!

Didn't Washington learn it's lesson the first time? *raises glass* here's a toast to monumental economic stupidity!

Obama's economic plan

On NYtimes

Sorry President-elect Obama, but this just sounds like a stupid idea. We don't need to spend more on government programs- we need to get busy on fixing things that really matter, like the un-constitutional legislation that is going on. Let's repeal the PATRIOT act, then deal with the fact that children can't get online and play games.

I mean, really. Broadband internet access is a privilege that is based on how much money you have. Sorry, but it's the truth. If I couldn't afford internet, then I wouldn't have it. It's as simple as that.

The economy does not need government support. Let them fail. It's called capitalism. They made stupid business decisions; now they're suffering. It's life, and it's the way of the market. But of course, some people might not be able to buy their deluxe new GMC if we were to let the auto companies go under! Our hearts are breaking!

Any way you look at it, spending MORE money is not going to help the economy, or our deficit, which President-elect Obama claims to be so worried about. I'm also concerned about where he's going to get the money to pay for all this. As a person who's going to be paying taxes during Mr. Obama's term (or terms), I'm not to keen on that aspect of things.

“We’ll measure progress by the reforms we make and the results we achieve by the jobs we create, by the energy we save, by whether America is more competitive in the world.” - President-elect Barack Obama

Where was he...

Where was Fred Thompson during the election?!

The Political Action Committee

He's wonderful in his economy video! Be sure to check it out- its the #1 video on his homepage. He's humorous, witty, and you have to listen to him because he actually makes sense! Where was this side of Thompson during the elections?!
