My favorite video of the week so far…
Don’t miss it.
When it comes to stealing taxpayers money, we have two very close contestants this week.
It seems the good representative of Texas likes to travel…and she wanted to travel the world to visit all the communists countries—at our expense:
According to the House Committee on the Judiciary — Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Tex., “traveled around the world on an official trip in February that cost American taxpayers $23,646. led by Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., — traveled first to Seoul and Hanoi in South Korea and then to Cambodia—But as Cooper noted Monday, Lee didn’t travel with CODEL. While other members of the delegation traveled together for the Feb. 16-22 trip, Lee took separate commercial flights to the region, and then left early on another commercial fight through Frankfurt Germany to explore ways they could “assist the region on child welfare reform and international adoptions.” Lee routinely upgrades her airline seats to first class.
Sheila evidently is a queen of righteous discontent if she isn’t treated like royalty, or Obama’s ugly step-sister. Not only does she insists she is chauffeured exactly ONE block from work to her apartment, (200 paces) she’s been known to throw hussy fits on planes if they don’t have the food she wants. There was a report that one time she got really angry when she found the menu didn’t include a seafood special she wanted.
“Don’t you know who I am? I’m Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. Where is my seafood meal? I know it was ordered!”
Nobody Knows how many couples in Texas want to adopt babies from Vietnam, but you would think that it would be low on the totem pole of Texas concerns.
Yes, We have wasted a lot of money on Sheila, who flies first class everywhere. But let’s just say, for her last trip, it costs the taxpayers a rounded, $50,000 (Come on…You know they jiggle the figures)
And then there’s Massachusetts. To let everyone know they are decent and loving people, evidently Massachusetts likes to make terrorists so comfortable the killers of the Boston Marathon lead a very cushy life at our expense.
The Tsarnaev family, including the suspected terrorists and their parents, benefited from more than $100,000 in taxpayer-funded assistance — a bonanza ranging from cash and food stamps to Section 8 housing from 2002 to 2012, the Herald has learned. This has since expanded its probe to include a full history of the benefits received by the entire Tsarnaev family.
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award this week?
You know, I have to say…Massachusetts. Liberalism is a disease, and people are dead and lives changed forever because of their stupidity.
What do you expect from a state who hatched Ted Kennedy?
But…oh you KNOW I really wanted Sheila to win and my only consolation is:
—-Huey Long (D. Senator from Louisiana), because our schools make darn sure our kids don’t know much about anything…but thanks to YouTube, we can visit the early seeds of Obama’s democratic/Marxist philosophy, made long ago…and here Huey delivers it with a lot of what looks like drunken flair, delivered with down-home cornporn passoion…The utopian Marxist dream of redistributing the wealth is displayed here on steroids. It’s pretty funny to watch.
Here’s some more of what Huey said on the radio in 1934:
Now, my friends, it makes no difference who is President or who is senator. America is for 125 million people and the unborn to come. We ran Mr. Roosevelt for the Presidency of the United States because he promised to us by word of mouth and in writing;1. That the size of the big man’s fortune would be reduced so as to give the masses at the bottom enough to wipe out all poverty: and 2. That the house of labor would be so reduced that all would share in the work to be done and in consuming the abundance mankind produced. There are thousands of share-our-wealth societies organized in the United States now. (In 2012 it’s just one society of Democratics)
Huey went on to suggest that all the multimillionaires and billionaires wealth shall be reduced so that nobody had more than one million.
“But $3 to $4 million is enough for any one person and his children and his children’s children. We propose to limit the amount any one man can earn in one year or inherit to $1 million to the person.”
Huey said that with the money they got from the rich
”We could provide a home and the comforts of home with such common conveniences as radio and automobile, for every family in America, free of debts. We guarantee food and clothing and employment for everyone who should work by shortening the hours of labor to 30 hours per week. Provide education, to everyone, including college. We would give a pension to all persons about sixty years of age. And would grant a moratorium on all debts which people owe that they cannot pay.
(Nobody says that already do that here in St. Louis. Every year, any one who got a ticket in St. Louis can line up and for $5.00, get their fines dismissed!)
Tell me…isn’t this exactly what they’ve been trying to do for the last decade? Someday when our deficit becomes to big for our children to pay, are they just going take GE’s profits and spread it around?
By the way…just so you know and do not remember: Huey Long was assassinated….
Makes you wonder if Obama just learned about Huey.
It’s a “cliff-hanger” of suspense…If ’President’ Obama and the Congress don’t make a deal in the next couple of days…I’ll have to sell my old drum set, and my grandfather’s old watch, and Timmy Geither will just have to move to Switzerland. But gee…what’s a President to do? He won the election, booked a 3 week vacation in Hawaii…and now he has to fly back Washington D.C. to “talk” again to the same people who he didn’t want to talk to in the first place.
How unfair is that?
First, we heard he was coming in Wednesday morning. THEN..it got updated to Thursday afternoon. THEN it go moved to more like Thursday night. Michelle wasn’t about to cancel her fun, so, will Obama come here for a Photo-op and go back out to Hawaii?
And how much will that cost us?
Or will he just bring his golf buddies back with him and take Air Force One down to Cancun?
It’s just so annoying to have your vacation interrupted by the Nation’s business. BUT..there IS a solution, and I’m so glad Nobody thought of it. Because it’s not being reported that the Obama’s have bought a house for $40 million dollars in Hawaii. I’m sure they have got a lot to do…especially hiding the fact that they are part of the 1% they keep talking about.
Barack and Michelle have just purchase an estate in close proximity to land owned by the University of Hawaii, where the Obama presidential library and “political center” will be located. The estate is valued at $40 million. There’s a movie theater in the mansion and it already is set up to play ALL of Obama’s speeches over the last 20 years – in a continuous loop. ”It was fun while it lasted”, Miss Marion is quoted by Chicagoans as saying, “but wait until you see the place they’re buying for Michelle and Barack!”
What we need to do, is get Obama…”THE BEAM,” and it’s a steal at $16,000. It walks, it talks, it connects, and it will save the taxpayers BILLIONS…no make that TRILLIONS of dollars. All it will need is one body guard to take it up and down stairs.
Take it from a boss who loves it!
Palo Alto, Calif.–Engineer Dallas Goecker attends meetings, jokes with colleague and roams the office building just like other employees at this company in Silicon Valley. But Goecker isn’t in California, he’s more than 2,300 miles away, working at home in Seymour, Indiana. It’s all made possible by Beam…a mobile video-conferencing machine that he can drive around his company’s offices and workshops in Palo Alto. The five–foot-tall device, topped with a large video screen, gives him a presence that makes him and his colleagues feel like he’s actually there.
Think of the GAS he is saving! Think of all the plane tickets he won’t have to buy! Think of the fact that he can’t touch his secretary in all the right places!
I think the Republicans would LOVE it. They might like talking to a robotic screen so much, all kinds of deals would get done. In fact, I say we send them all one, and let them stay home in their districts, where they might have to actually SEE the damage they are doing to the country.
Or they could ALL move to Hawaii!
Software engineer Josh Faust beams in daily from Hawaii, where he moved to surf, and plans to spend the winter hitting the slopes in Lake Tahoe. He can’t play ping-pong or eat the free, catered lunches in Palo Alto, but he otherwise feels like he’s part of the team.
So, there you go. I think it would work. Beam them in. Let Obama go back to Hawaii and stay there…and you know what? He won’t need Air Force One anymore. Park that gas-guzzling sucker Mr. “President” in D.C.
You would save so much money, that we could expand welfare, and nobody would have to work, ever again. Use it to give free Airplane rides to Hawaii to visit your house!
After all…we paid for it.
“The president of the United States is also on an economically stimulating spending spree, and he’s paying for it with a lien on all the future job and business opportunities that your children will have. This means they won’t have them. I hope that your kids, once they’ve gotten their MBAs, enjoy stocking shelves at the Dollar Store. “ –P.J. O’Rourke, Don’t Vote It Just Encourages the Bastards.
I don’t know about you, but it’s hard to come back to reality after Christmas. We had a month of Hallmark Christmas specials, and more than the usual Christmas cheer in the Malls. This year, Christmas was NOT a dirty word. After the election, half the country went into a stupor of –”Please…let us celebrate something!” And they did. Christmas is just what everybody needed.
Still, there are many families that did not have the usual fun and frolic: Those in homeless shelters, and this guy. Watch this video…it is proof that nothing is going right in Dodge. This man is incredibly intelligent, and honest…kind, sensible…and he’s in a shelter. (Thanks to amfortas for video)
He WANTS to work. I’m sure he could collect welfare, but he wants to work. This is too sad.
Imagine..having three degrees, and you can’t find a job. And to add absurdity on to the top of it, we hear Obama pushing for college education for everyone who wants it every chance he gets. He wants a nation filled with people with degrees…. Why? To keep the liberal university professors working?
So–How do we keep the optimism going in the year ahead? Do we wait with breathless anticipation to find out if we all have to pay MORE taxes next year? Obama is determined to tax the rich. He will never relent. He won’t stop spending….and he will blame the Republicans for the money that will be taken out of the paychecks of those that work…as if the 45 percent that DO work aren’t paying enough.
Nobody is suspicious. If you listen to the experts, 2013 will be the worst in our history…which will give the number 13 all the credit that it is due.
Nobody Wants to look back on these past four years…and there’s certainly not much to look forward to..except the good news: Families will become stronger next year…out of sheer necessity. You never know when that uncle you didn’t get along with, just might give you a job.
But hey…Let’s not think about that…Obama will be coming in from Hawaii to make a speech!
And speaking of Obama…Adam Smith was talking about him a long time ago. …..tell me if this doesn’t just FIT him perfect.
The man of system…is apt to be very wise in his own conceit: and is often so enamored with the supposed beauty of his own ideal plan of government, that he cannot suffer the smallest deviation from any part of it. —Adam Smith
Yep. Hold on to your wallets compadres…Obama IS the system. Hide the eggnog.

By now, Paul Ryan has spoken to the nation and no doubt has told us about the danger coming from our national debt—We are spending too much, and Welfare includes more than food stamps. Much more. Hundreds of programs exist to ‘help’ the needy. You won’t hear from the Democrats that welfare is not a good thing, nope. For Democrats, the more people on welfare the better. They even have ads out to ‘hook’ you into free whatever you like, like this grocery receipt someone found on the ground in Ohio.
Hey…I’d LOVE to pick up some lobster, how about you? After all, you PAID for it!
I just downloaded ‘Google Chrome” and asked this questions: “How many people are on Welfare?”
I got this answer, “Not a good search.”
What? Google is now telling me what I can or cannot “intellectually’ handle. It gave me liberal sites to answer my question. Those sites told me NOT to listen to what those conservatives tell me…only 4 million people are on welfare..all that other stuff—food stamps etc–that’s not welfare.
But–we know better don’t we? The facts are: More than half the people in the United States pay NO income tax, and the other half is supporting them. This little tidbit is from FORBES:
Over the 10 year period from 2009 to 2018, federal and state welfare spending will total $10.3 trillion. This does not include Obamacare’s massive expansion of Medicaid, or the massive new entitlement providing subsidies for families making close to $100,000 per year, and beyond. Together, this abusive entitlement spending will add trillions more. 50% of the entire budget. Not exactly stingy.
But, here’s what you won’t hear from Paul Ryan: This massive welfare state was well-planned, and Obama’s plan is to keep as many people on Welfare as he can. The old Democratic Party is dead, and in its place, (Glenn Beck has been on this like a dead bug on a windshield) is a Marxist ‘takeover’ planned—by two Columbia University Professors. Here’s their plan from article published in “Nation” in 1966, by Cloward-Piven: It’s called the “crisis” strategy.
Here’s an excellent explanation from David Horowitz-The Shadow Party
The strategy would be to overload the welfare system with a flood of new applicants and cause it to go bankrupt. They proposed a ‘massive drive to recruit the poor onto the welfare rolls”. Cloward and Piven calculated that persuading even a fraction of the potential welfare recipients to demand their entitlements would bankrupt the entire system. The demands would break the budget and jam the bureaucratic gears into gridlock. The Result would be “a profound financial and political crisis” that would unleash “powerful forces for major economic reform at the national level.”
Their article called for “cadres of aggressive organizers” to use “demonstrations to create a climate of militancy.” Intimidated by black violence, politicians would appeal to the federal government for help. Carefully orchestrated media campaigns carried out by friendly journalists would promote the idea of “a federal program of income redistribution in the form of a guaranteed living income for all, working and non working people alike.” Local officials would grab hold of this idea like drowning men reaching for a lifeline. They would apply pressure on Washington to implement the idea. With major cities erupting in chaos like Watts, Washington would have to act.
It’s his plan: Destroy the United States to rebuild it into his Marxist Utopia.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to live in Obama’s Welfare nightmare….I want to be able to buy my own lobster.

Nobody loves watching them all gather to eat in happy chirps more than me.
Every year, I would celebrate my little Cardinal couple having babies, and THEIR babies have babies, knowing that my little wonders would never have to worry about food or water even in the coldest of winters made me feel very happy. If I could not control my life and the world around me, at least I could do something good. Feed the birds, the squirrels, and the raccoons.
Who doesn’t love baby raccoons? It wasn’t only the enjoyment of watching nature, it was the feeling I got for…sort of doing my part. I know— I’m not the only one doing this. Lots of folks feed birds, raccoons– even deer for their own feeling of enjoyment. But this week, I am in shock. Not only shock, but embarrassment. Embarrassed at how stupid I have been.
What’s that saying: Don’t mess with mother nature?
You see, when you feed birds, they drop the shells on the ground. Don’t listen to the man selling bird seed to you, your grass will die, while he is on vacation in Hawaii. I would buy 40 pounds of sunflowers seeds a week, and the guy would always say” “This will HELP your grass!” You might as well spray it with bleach.
And the seeds bring mice, then rats. And rats have litters of 19, and the realization that feeding the birds has a high price: you will also feed the rats, and rats can bring disease.
So, I have to stop. After 30 years it’s time, and not a moment too soon either. At these times of higher gas, food, electric, etc, prices, every single worthless American dollar counts. For every future dollars I could spend on feeding birds,— that might be one more meal that I would miss when I’m 75.
But, I never thought I’d feel so bad about stopping. What would my poor babies do without me? Just today, I looked at my window, and saw my Cardinal running all over the ground, as if he was in a panic. The squirrel he shares his evening meal with: right beside him. The same squirrel who came up to my back door window and looked at me for the first time, in anger, with a “HEY…where’s my FOOD!” look.
Like I said– stupid. I was stupid to get all these birds hooked on free meals. Now, I will have to watch them struggle, and go back to depending on whatever DNA God gave them to tell them to eat.
If they could go on strike, I’m sure they would. I’d see them carrying little union birdie signs saying, “How do you expect us to feed our children?” AND; TAX the rich lady in the house, SELL the house and give us our food!”
And that’s what happens: All the movie stars, the CEO moguls, the liberals, —cannot stand any suffering of any kind. They want to redistribute the wealth to those poor little babies in Africa, the illegal’s from Mexico’s–WHOMEVER– because you see…it makes them FEEL good about themselves.
Giving is a very important human emotion: no doubt it triggers TONS of serotonin, and you can get addicted to that “giving” crack. The biggest problem with the Michael Moore’s', Obama’s, Oprah’s, and all the other bleeding hearts…is that, they are the ones hurting the world the most, and don’t even realized it, because, they want to feel GOOD about themselves. In the meantime, they are crack giving addicts. Obama feels good when he can take it from the rich, and spread it around. After all, he remembers how good he felt on Cocaine. Even if he is not still on Cocaine, (which is dubious) his addicting synapses in his brain didn’t go away.
After all the billions that have been given to all the nations in the world, tell me: Is Africa better off? How about Haiti? Mother nature meant for us all to take care of ourselves. Man is just as much part of mother nature as the little birds in the air.
It’s not good for birds, and it’s not good for humans. A few hundred humans cannot take care of the masses of the world, but they want their “fix.” The most humane thing for any man or woman to do, is to let other humans take care of themselves. Help out when necessary, but always aim to let mother nature take its natural course.
We need less of it, not more.
As for me…I’m still in withdrawal. It’s a painful lesson…I can’t wait for the day when I look out my back window and see my fine Cardinal friend still around. It’s time I started getting back to “Mother Nature” and let my grass grow back…who knows what lies beneath those crack- giving addicting weeds in my mind?
Some of you I know, may not have seen this yet. Leave it to Drudge to dig up the really funny stuff that you have to see to believe.
I have only one thing to say: I will bet you —that this guy voted for Obama. I think he needs more potato chips, don’t you?
