A Patriotic Response To The "Clown Prince;" 10/15/2011
District of Corruption,
October 15, 2011
I’m here in Detroit visiting workers at a GM plant in the heart of a resurgent American auto industry. And I brought a guest with me – President Lee of South Korea. We’re here because this week, Congress passed landmark trade agreements with countries like Korea, and assistance for American workers that will be a big win for our economy. These trade agreements will support tens of thousands of American jobs. And we’ll sell more Fords, Chevys and Chryslers abroad stamped with three proud words – “Made in America.” So it was good to see Congress act in a bipartisan way on something that will help create jobs at a time when millions of Americans are out of work and need them now. But that’s also why it was so disappointing to see Senate Republicans obstruct the American Jobs Act, even though a majority of Senators voted “yes” to advance this jobs bill.
[What I'm not telling you: This has been a really dismal week for me; for my regime in general and for 'General' holder in particular! So I thought we'd start the explanation of this blather opportunity off with a bit of humor: President Lee of South Korea is visiting for a cuppla'days as we sign away more American rights on the international trade front. Just for the-hell-of-it; I decided to feed the president some Japanese food; Waygu (Japanese bred cattle) beef, if for no other reason that to show him who's actually in charge around here.
The South Korean trade agreement was suggested to me as a way to continue to reward the United Auto Workers Union for their on-going support. You'll recall that during the $787 Thousand-Million PORKulus bail-out of 'Government Motors' and Chrysler, we gave said union a 17.5% stake in the company while the bond-holders--the only ones putting private money at-risk--were screwed-to-the-wall with a mere 10% ownership in 'Government' Motors!!
That "Made in America" phrase means diddly-squat!! Considering the vast and varied makes and models of American autos, about the only thing Made in America are the patents and the trademark agreements!! Just considering GM vehicles: the Camaro, the Equinox, the Impala and the GMC Terrain are Made in Canada; the Cadillac SRX and Escalade EXT, the Chevrolet Aveo, HHR, Silverado, the GMC Sierra are Made in Mexico!! Hell, the foreign monikers build more 'Made in America' vehicles than do the U.S. companies! Of foreign auto makers, Toyota: Camry and Avalon (Georgetown, Ky.), Sienna and Highlander (Princeton, In.), with other large Toyota auto plants in Huntsville Al., and San Antonio, Tx.; Hyundai: Sonata and Elantra (Montgomery, Al.); Kia: Sorento (West Point, Ga.); Nissan builds its larger pickups and SUVs in Smyrna, Ga.; Mercedes-Benz ML-, R- and G-class models (Vance, Al.); BMW X-Series SUVs (Spartanburg, S.C.).
My failed 'American Jobs (and Taxes) Act' was not the result of which side the republicRATs fell on during the Senate vote; the owe-bamacRATics couldn't even get all their members to vote for my latest (but surely not the last) wealth re-distribution plan! Some of those owe-bamacRATics who did vote for the plan, questioned the $447 Thousand-MILLION spending plan with an already outrageous $1.5 Thousand-BILLION budget deficit!! Hell, even that louse 'Pinky' reid changed his vote to "NO!!"]
We can’t afford this lack of action. And there is no reason for it. Independent economists say that this jobs bill would give the economy a jumpstart and lead to nearly two million new jobs. Every idea in that jobs bill is the kind of idea both parties have supported in the past. The majority of the American people support the proposals in this jobs bill. And they want action from their elected leaders to create jobs and restore some security for the middle class right now. You deserve to see your hard work and responsibility rewarded – and you certainly deserve to see it reflected in the folks you send to Washington. But rather than listen to you and put folks back to work, Republicans in the House spent the past couple days picking partisan ideological fights. They’re seeing if they can roll back clean air and water protections. They’re stirring up fights over a woman’s right to make her own health care choices. They’re not focused on the concrete actions that will put people back to work right now.
[What I'm not telling you: Not only have I destroyed the domestic energy sector on both land and sea; I intend to continue to destroy it through the IRS which will have the added benefit of raising energy costs as I had intended in my last campaign. With the removal--or severe limitation--of various oil and gas tax incentives, the intended consequence is higher exploration, recovery and refining costs as well as increased retail energy costs FOR YOU, the consumer!!
My voter base has substantially deminished of late! Polls indicate that the 18-to-24 year-old voter is quickly but quietly, leaning toward a far more conservative mindset. With the added deficit spending putting them--and all Americans--in the untenable position of being so far in debt, they'll never-see-daylight in their lifetimes. Even the leadership of the various "occupy (insert city name here)" mobs have such a disjointed agenda as to be rudderless. Their spokes-people on the national news shows can't clearly articulate their demands; they just--much like my campaign blather--read from a list of 'talking-points.']
Well, we’re going to give them another chance. We’re going to give them another chance to spend more time worrying about your jobs than keeping theirs. Next week, I’m urging Members of Congress to vote on putting hundreds of thousands of teachers back in the classroom, cops back on the streets, and firefighters back on the job. And if they vote “no” on that, they’ll have to tell you why. They’ll have to tell you why teachers in your community don’t deserve a paycheck again. They’ll have to tell your kids why they don’t deserve to have their teacher back. They’ll have to tell you why they’re against commonsense proposals that would help families and strengthen our communities right now. In the coming weeks, we’ll have them vote on the other parts of the jobs bill – putting construction workers back on the job, rebuilding our roads and bridges; providing tax cuts for small businesses that hire our veterans; making sure that middle-class families don’t see a tax hike next year and that the unemployed and our out-of-work youth have a chance to get back in the workforce and earn their piece of the American Dream. That’s what’s at stake. Putting people back to work. Restoring economic security for the middle class. Rebuilding an economy where hard work is valued and responsibility is rewarded – an economy that’s built to last. And I’m going to travel all over the country over the next few weeks so that we can remind Congress that’s their job. Because there’s still time to create jobs and grow our economy right now. There’s still time for Congress to do the right thing. We just need to act.
[What I'm not telling you: All these 'protected-class' jobs I refer to?!? The teachers, the policemen and women, the firefighters, the first-responders, et al?!? Those jobs that will come with the passage of my mis-guided Jobs and Tax' legislation will only be funded FOR ONE YEAR!! After that year, it will become the responsibility of the states, counties and municipalities to either continue funding on their own, or lay off the added employees!! How cleaver is that!! I get the 'positive bounce' with the jobs 'creation;' they suffer the wrath of raising local taxes to continuing the funding OR to fire the workers!! Again..... How Cleaver Is That?!?
Notice that--even though this regime's created dam' few jobs--I continue to wander aimlessly around the countryside (at taxpayer expense), blathering on incessantly about all the good I'm doing, all the jobs I've created. In truth--if George Soros would allow it--all that's needed for an intense economic resurgence is the nullification of the many and vast, strangling rules and regulations small businesses suffer under, as well as the nullification of owe-bamaKare!! owe-bamaKare has been the most destructive jobs-killer ever devised--and most of the provisions haven't even gone into effect, yet!!
Truth-be-told (a foreign concept to me!), the only thing stopping me (actually Soros) from being anointed "Ruler-for-Life" is that dam' "Tea Party" movement!! The 'movement'--as opposed to those "occupy...." miscreants--protest as such a well-mannered, ordered gathering as to be practically impossible to vilify! Try as we might, ordering the fascist-leaning media to continue to denegrate the movement never works. The articles never gain any traction, except on shows like 'Mr Ed' Shultz and that idiot Sharpton's, reaching a combined viewership of about 16 people.
The "Tea Party" movement continually hold their representatives' and senators' feet-to-the-fire; making fascist legisation nearly impossible to pass!! The current trend is circumventing the "Tea Party" movement with those "occupy...." miscreants by the fascist-leaning media. Even that ain't workin'!]
