CADILLAC ELR POOLSIDE 2014 AD

February 27, 2014

I think the Poolside 2014 Cadillac ELR ad is terrific.  I see it as a response to Nancy Pelosi and Congressman Charles Shumers (D-NY) ridiculous comments trying to cover-up the colossal failure of Obamacare, which resulted in the loss of full-time, well-paid jobs and the lowering of the full-time work week from 40 hours per week to 35 hours.  This Healthcare abomination has resulted in the creation of minimum wage, full-time, temporary jobs and Nancy is promoting this as a good thing, claiming that now these under achievers, and under paid workers can relax, follow their dreams and let the Government take over in supporting them.  Of course, what Nancy, Harry (Reid) and Charles don’t tell you is that along with that government support, that they claim is a good thing, they are also passing Bills that will allow the government to regulate what you eat, drink, and soon what activities you must participate in if you want to be supported and receive government paid for and less than optimal Healthcare.  

Most foreigners come to America to follow their dreams, but those dreams don’t include sitting on their duffs all day and painting a picture or playing the guitar Ms. Pelosi.  People come here, to the land of opportunity, where they have the Freedom to compete, in the work place, where the best of the best, rise to the top, and by doing so, they develop a good work ethic, sense of self-worth, satisfaction for putting in a good days work and pride in themselves, knowing they can pursue their dreams, whatever they may be, but on their own terms, with money they have earned and with pride because they too are a part of the American  exceptionalism that Patriotic, true Americans have always had.  For those who do not believe in American exceptionalism, well, all I can say is, WOW!  Evidently, there’s a sucker born every minute.  ss

 

No Change In DC

December 21, 2010

It Continuously baffles me how Americans constantly give the Democrats (more to the point, Obama) another chance.  It is also mind-boggling how we repeatedly believe that the elected officials from either House have learned their lesson, or better yet, seen the light, and will almost over night change their tune.  

I remember when Obama ran for office and how the media and all those elitist Democrats raved about what a fabulous speaker Obama was.  The fact that he was reading someone else’s words, from a teleprompter, never became part of  the discussion. 

My point:  Obama just spoke words.  Words that meant the world to those who listened and eventually voted for Obama, but meant nothing to him.  As for Congress, it never mattered what Obama said he would do or not do; Congress always exempts itself from the bills they pass into law.

So, when you hear that Nancy Pelosi is for some bill because it is good for the people; she is not including herself as one of the people; she is exempt.

I guess I’m going off course here a little.  You see, I don’t think anyone who is voted out of office like 60+ Democrats were, should be allowed to vote on the passage of any law, during the lame-duck session of Congress.  None of the bills passed this week should have been voted on.  Basically, Congress should have gone home for Christmas and waited until they came back to discuss the bills up for a vote and then read them out-loud on the floor, before voting on them.

Has anything changed in DC; I think not.  Are the Republicans so much better than the Democrats; I think not.  There is no logic to the fact that the Republicans claim that they need the Bush tax cuts extended for everyone, especially the rich, because it is the rich who create the jobs, do the hiring.  Well, the rich have had the Bush tax cuts for 7 years, and I haven’t seen any jobs being created nor have I seen any hiring, at least, not in America, (A bunch of CEO’s did go with Obama to Indonesia (remember the 13 day trip? It certainly wasn’t to create American jobs.

If you need verification of this fact then tell me, why did we need to extend unemployment for 13 months if the rich were doing all this job creating?  The Democrats and the Republicans talk out of both sides of their mouths.  The American people are still not connecting the dots.  When will they learn?

The Republicans could have held off until after Christmas to vote on all the bills, including the one that would shut down the Federal Government.  They could have taken a stand; but hey, the won their seats this time around, because the people believed their promise to cut spending and then they did what they always do, a complete180° turn around, and went back to their old tricks. 

When will they ever learn?  ss

Tea Partiers Need More Action, Less Talk

March 2, 2010

I watched the National Tea Party’s first gathering a week ago.  Sarah Palin was the main speaker.  She did a good job,  expressing her views and the views of the Tea Party movement.  I am pleased that Americans are finally standing up and getting involved.  One thing I want to point out though, is that the Tea Parties have been reving up for the last year, but now it’s time to go into action.  Yes, they have started, but to really effect this mid-term election, they need to  Stop talking and start “Doing”. 

We need to get to work Now, Today!  We have only 9 months until the elections and time flys by very fast.  It’s time to start targeting some issues and we need a National Referendum put on the ballot in each state this year. We need to change how Congress gets paid.

1)No continuous pay checks once they leave office.
2)They need to be put on Social Security like the rest of us
3)If and/or when they pass a Health Care bill it will apply to them also. No more treatment as though they are Royalty.
4)They only serve TWO terms and then they are out. This will help limit the amount of corruption within those Congressional walls.
5)The spouses should be on Social Security now.

They also need to be put on the same Health Care program that they so graciously pass for us. These very disgustingly poor examples for Human beings, much less Americans deserve to be run out of town with no benefits at all. They have done nothing but waste a whole year working (supposedly) on a bill the majority don’t want, instead of spending that time working on a plan for jobs for unemployed Americans.

These people, especially this Congress, starting with Nancy Pelosi, are condescending in the way they speak to or about their constituents, they are rude and self-absorbed. They refuse to listen to their constituents when they say “NO” to a bill they are working on. The Health Care bill is an example, something like 70% of Americans do not want the Health Care bill Congress has been fervently working on, and they have yet to listen.

This Congress just wasted 1 year, working on a Health Care bill that the people they are supposed to be helping by passing this bill, cannot afford to pay the monthly payments on because they are out of work. Congress hasn’t listened, but has instead said, “Hey, if you don’t pay then you will be fined”. I mean this really makes sense, doesn’t it? The fact that many Americans have no job doesn’t even matter. Of course, I believe if they don’t pay the fine they are sentenced to a term in jail, where they will at least get food, shelter, and “YES” Health care for free.

Really do you actually think these idiots deserve the salary they are getting paid now, much less after they retire? I don’t. In fact, just writing this is making me sick.

This Congress has yet to earn what they have been paid this year. And I truly hope, with all my heart, that we pay them the bonus they deserve for  all their hard work this year, by not re-electing them.
