San Antonio Toll Party has a good article on the bond election and some good recommendations on how to vote on several of the propositions. Personally, if they are going to go to the well AGAIN for money, why can’t they use it for roads instead of tolling us to death more and more. That’s what burns me up about tolls. It releases huge amounts of money for a bunch of scumbag politicians to use in the public tit which buys votes from those dumb enough to think that the well is bottomless. It’s a tax that they don’t have enough courage or honesty to call a tax. Sic Semper Politicus.
The story is here about the District Attorney’s office. First the newly elected black DA fires all the white employees and replaces them with blacks. Then when a judgement is found against him for that action and he is ordered to pay restitution he refuses. This is another YWSTSITMSM (You Won’t See This In The Main Stream Media) story. How can somebody be so stupid to think that action like this will bring anything but bad results?
After observing Africa’s internal politics for many years I heartily agree with the sentence from The Astute Bloggers which pointed me to this story, “If he had been a white Republican, the national media would have been all over this years ago. But they seem to accept from African-Americans exactly the sort of behavior that has made Africa such a lawless place. I can’t see that they do anybody any favors by that. It’s just another form of racism. They judge a man by his race and have different standards for different races.”
The Discerning Texan has the story and the classic quote, “When they may be seeing the light in Austin, there may be hope for us all.”
Chickenhawk Express has it. Be the first in your neighborhood to get one.
Here’s a good reply to your liberal democrat friends that are caught up in this pie-in-the-sky, utopian fantasy that all we have to do is institute free medical care for everyone and we will have it just like it is now, only free!
How many articles are we going to have to see from Canada and England of the horror stories associated with socialized medical care before we realize that it is a bust. But our lazy libs just cannot believe that anything coming from the free market can be good. The only good and compassionate dispensary is our federal government, according to them. Just look at that example of efficiency, the U.S. Post Office or our nearly bankrupt Social (in)Security system or our over subscribed, underfunded medicare and drug benefits.
Yessiree, folks. Just sit back and relax. Hillary and Nancy will take care of all of us.
An article at Seeking Alpha talks about Chicago, Michigan and California. The same thing is going on in Texas. If you think you’ve seen tax increases now, just wait until the next session of the legislature. When have you ever heard a legislator talk about re-ordering priorities of spending? When you ever heard one saying that we have to cut spending? How long do we have to wait for that? Anyone that says anything about cutting funds for anyone gets killed at the election booth.
Then there is the old scam of politicians. Can you spot it in the featured article? Michigan’s democratic governor Granholm’s statement, “We prevented massive cuts to public education, health care and public safety…” is one. What it fails to address is that there are plenty of other things in the budget that certainly could afford to be cut but scum-bag pols will always threaten to cut mom and apple pie things. Some commission to rescue the endangered blind cave spider would not be missed by too many folks but they will talk about having to take food out of childrens mouths, having kids dying by the millions because they won’t get this or that immunization. I was in New York several years ago when they were facing a budget shortfall. In the appeal for more money from the taxpayers the mayor threatened to have to close the zoos and the libraries. What a chump. He threatens to close the most used entities to scare the people into thinking that they will lose these if they don’t vote for more taxes. That dishonesty should be enough to vote them out of office.
So what else is new? Pundit Review kind of hammers it home. Boy, and how. They’re really catching a lot of flak because of their stupid decision and they deserve every bit of it and more. They make some really memorable points in this posting. Note them well. Then use them on your non-scientific, true-believer friends. You know, the ones that believe in this scam.
