A Patriotic Response To The "Clown Prince;" 09/17/2011
District of Corruption
September 17, 2011
I’ve spent some time lately traveling the country and talking with folks outside of Washington. And the number one issue for the people I meet is how we can get back to a place where we’re creating good, middle-class jobs that pay well and offer some security. That’s the idea behind the American Jobs Act. It’s a jobs bill that does two simple things: put more people back to work, and more money back in the pockets of people who are working. This jobs bill puts construction workers back to work rebuilding our roads and bridges and modernizing our schools. This jobs bill puts teachers back in the classroom, and keeps cops and firefighters on our streets. This jobs bill gives tax credits to companies that hire our veterans, because if you sign up to fight for our country, the last thing you should have to do is fight for a job when you come home. This jobs bill connects the long-term unemployed to temporary work to keep their skills sharp while they look for a job, and it gives hundreds of thousands of young people the hope of a job next summer. This jobs bill cuts taxes for every small business owner in America. It cuts them even more for small business owners that hire new workers and raise workers’ salaries. And it cuts taxes for every working family in America so that you’ll have more money in your pockets, and businesses know they’ll have customers to buy what they sell.
[What I'm not telling you: Actually, what my American Jobs Act does: It ignores all the projects that were to be funded with the previous $787 Thousand-Million PORKulus Bill that just had to be passed immediately to prevent the complete collapse of the American infrastructure and the American economy. Well, we can see how efficiently I've spent that money! The bulk went to pay off the public and labor union officials for their support and monetary contributions. More went to buy General Motors and Chrysler Corporation. During the time that the federal government became the largest auto manufacturer in the world, I told the private GM bondholders to 'go f**k themselves!' They ended up being repaid a mere, few measily, cents-on-the-dollar, while the United Auto Workers union received major stakes in both 'Government' Motors and Chrysler. UAW-GM received 17.5% of the common stock; $6.5 Thousand-Million in preferred shares; a $2.5 Thousand-Million note to fund a trust that will take over funding of the union retiree health care costs.
I have promised that each and every proposal outlined in MY American Jobs Act will be paid for!! But, how you ask?!? Any government at any level, does not--and cannot--create wealth! The only ways any governmental entity can raise money is through entering into borrowing or through taxation. In a single day, I nearly "maxed-out" the recent debt-ceiling increase, so borrowing is out of the question. That leaves but one other avenue: that of taxation. If the gullible public actually believes my on-going, blusterful blather (that these proposals will actually be 'paid-for'), the only possible way these proposals can be funded is with ever-increasing taxes to those who can least afford them: the American Taxpayer!! So actually, where's the benefit here?!? If I were to honestly look at all phases of the proposal, I'd have to admit that it actually does more harm than good!!
As I've been doing for a week-or-so, I can recite all the rosey predictions of this bill, but at- the-end-of-the-day, no one believes me!! If this were truly a beneficial bill, wouldn't the owe-bamacRATics in the House of Representatives be 'crawling-all-over-themselves' to sponsor and co-sponsor the bill in their chamber?!? Sofar, not a soul has ventured-forth to sign onto the bill!!]
That’s the American Jobs Act, and you can check it out for yourself on WhiteHouse.gov. It will create new jobs. It will cut taxes for every worker and small business in the country. And it will not add to the deficit. It will be paid for. On Monday, I’ll lay out my plan for how we’ll do that – how we’ll pay for this plan and pay down our debt by following some basic principles: making sure we live within our means and asking everyone to pay their fair share. But right now, we’ve got to get Congress to pass this jobs bill. Everything in the American Jobs Act is the kind of idea that’s been supported by Democrats and Republicans before. And if they’re ideas you agree with, too, every one of you can help make it happen by telling your congressperson to pass this jobs bill right away. I know some of them would rather wait another year to wage another election than work together right now. But most Americans don’t have the luxury of waiting. It was three years ago this week that a financial crisis on Wall Street made things much more difficult for working folks on Main Street. And too many are still hurting as a result. So the time for action is now. No more games or gridlock. No more division or delay. It’s time for the people you sent to Washington to put country before party – to stop worrying so much about their jobs and start worrying more about yours. It’s time to get to work and show the world once again why the United States of America remains the greatest nation on Earth.
[What I'm not telling you: When you do your due-diligence on the American Jobs Act, do not be confused with the Representative Louie Gohmert (r, Tx-1) bill of the same name!! The Gohmert bill has actually been introduced into the House of Representatives so--in essence--it's 'light-years' ahead of my bill. The Gohmert bill realistically stands a chance of enactment, whereas my bill seems to be 'dead-on-arrival!!' While I can't even brow-beat 'pinky' reid into supporting my bill; Nancy PORKlosi has spoken out--albeit, somewhat ineptly--in support of this massive tax increase proposal!!
Don't tell anyone, but I think she's so stupid; so uneducated; so star-struck with me, that she actually believes this will have other actions besides relieving the America taxpayer of more-and-more of his-or-her monies!!
The prime moving force behind my proposal is FEAR! This is the first point in my life that I actually believe that I'll not be given all I desire! There has been no point previously that I've not been handed anything and everything I ever wanted; I had but to make my desires known. This actually started a an early age. After failing kindergarten, I was just pushed along with others my age each time I returned to schooling in Hawaii, after being in Indonesia for part or all of a school year. With the exception of said kindergarten failure, my mentors and handlers have been able to quash any investigations into my grades at any school level. I can tell you here, that I managed to squeak by in those courses in which my grades couldn't be fixed!! That's the primary reason you'll never find my grades from Occidental College, Columbia University or Harvard Law!! Even with the formal schooling I benefitted from--with little, if any, 'sweat-equity'--I most cherish those eight-days I spent in Los Angeles, attending a national training course on the Saul Alinsky methods of community agitation!!!
But--I digress: The FEAR I refer to is the probability that I'll not be re-elected! Early on, I found it quite easy to convince and confound the listening public with regards to the fundamental changes I had in store for the country, for the economy. With a couple of exceptions, practically every one of my proposals has failed; the only meaningful success I've had recently is the actual election as "Clown Prince;" an election purchased by George Soros, Valarie Jarrett and their vast network of communist sympathizers. As I'm being rediculed at every turn, the latest is the ill-concieved "AttackWatch.com" If this doesn't illustrate the fear that my handlers and I feel, I don't know what will!!
In conclusion, the Louie Gohmert bill is the one I sincerely wish I could 'get behind.' Even though it goes against everything I've been taught; everything I support, it's the only bill in the past two and a half years that actually is a benefit to the American taxpayer; the American people!! While I cannot support it--the political costs would be insurmountable!!--I'm sure the vast majority of my party will; they fear the '12 elections and the impact the "Tea Party" movement will have on them!!]
