Honoring Our Fathers: Stewardship of the Gravy Train

It's time America got on board with the new bipartisanship emerging in our great Nation's capital. There is a New Day (TM) dawning in America, with good will toward men and other people's money for all. Well, almost all. Except for those 'other people.'

Nancy Pelosi, speaking at Google offices, said that a Congress dominated by even more Democrats will actually be more bipartisan. Pelosi said, "Elect us, hold us accountable, and make a judgment and then go from there. But I do tell you that if the Democrats win and have substantial majorities, Congress of the United States will be more bipartisan."

Which two partisan approaches she thinks will be working together remains unclear, but past performance and conduct would suggest that both sides will be working together; Those who support Barack Obama and Socialism and those who hate George W. Bush and Conservatism. And I have to be honest, I'm getting excited about it all.

Howard Dean also assuaged fears of partisan divide. In noting that both proponents of socialism and opponents of conservatism will work together amicably, Dean assured, "Republicans had a chance to rule. They failed miserably. I think it's time to give the other party a chance."

The Peace and Prosperity Coalition is building, acquiring cooperative membership from all sides: Democrats, Obama Supporters, Bush Haters and the Media. Peace in our time, and "political and economic justice" to boot. Once we can "break free."

"Break free"? Oh yes, brothers and sisters, Break Free!

With the bipartisanship extended all the way from Capitol Hill to the White House, President Obama will finally have the visionary cooperation necessary to "break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution" and get to work for the American people in exacting "redistributive change."

After all, nothing's more fun than spending other peoples' money. And 95% of us are getting more of that. It's been promised. And we deserve it, after all. Talk about your ultimate stimulus package... Now I know what Chris Matthews felt like. I'm getting a tingling feeling running up my leg just thinking about the shopping spree that awaits me and my family.

Now, where can I go to sign up for the new Civilian Defense Force? There is unrest and violence on farms across this nation that the millions of police departments, sheriffs departments, FBI, ATF, and the Armed Forces have long refused to put down. And it's high time we stood up.

When we get to the farms and put down the violent oppressors, the patriotic duty is to paint on the barn sides "All animals are equal." For a new chapter has truly begun.

Our fathers and grandfathers would be so proud. "What stewardship!" they surely would proclaim, "What stewardship!"

You might want to hold off on putting down the oppressors on the Farms. Mugabe has done that in Zimbabwe, and look how that has turned out. Maybe they forgot "All animals are equal." on the barns. Yeah, that explains the failure.

RE: Speaker Pelosi: "Elect us, hold us accountable, and make a judgment and then go from there."

We did elect you in 2006. How about we hold you accountable NOW? Why is that unfair? You have had the Power of the Purse for about a year and a half now, and you've done nothing constructive with it.

RE: Dean: "Republicans had a chance to rule. They failed miserably. I think it's time to give the other party a chance."

Except, of course, that the Republicans got elected in 1994 because the Democrats failed so miserably. After only two years on one-party rule by Democrats, the public trashed the Democratic majority in both houses of Congress - ending about thirty years of Democratic rule in the house.

There are several bad things being shown in this election (and in 2006). One of them is that neither party can effectively manage the government for the benefit of the country. Both parties are hopelessly corrupted by the powerful forces inside the beltway. Democrats have always been the party of corruption; Republicans came in to fix the mess and got corrupted, too. The other dynamic is that the majority of Americans are expecting to vote themselves rich. Robbing Peter to pay Paul is a popular idea - unless you're named "Peter".

A wise man once said, "Intelligent people learn from their mistakes. Really intelligent people learn from other people's mistakes." Democratic Socialism doesn't work. It's been tried, and it's a terrible failure. As P.J. O'Rouke said, "When everything that is bought and sold is controlled by politicians, the first thing bought and sold are politicians." And the more money you put into government, the less efficient the economy gets.

The last time we tried this income re-distribution nonsense was tried the Democrats gave us the Federal sales tax on luxury goods. Even Democrats voted to kill that idea because lots of ordinary working people lost their jobs (especially in the pleasure boat industry).

It could happen. Look at the job they did getting gas prices down, all it took was the near destruction of the global economy. I can see this working - an increased democratic majority (because 9% approval ratings are just too darn high!) coupled with the most liberal, by far, president in the history of the nation is bound to cripple if not completely trash, the country - which, at that point, might conceivably lead to the election of some actual conservatives (note I don't say Republicans) and, therefore, more bipartisanship.

Yeah, it could work. But, boy, isn't that a rather extreme path to get there, Nan?

San Fran Nan doesn't care as long as her hubby still gets multimillion dollar government contracts, so she and her family can live the lifestyle they are accustomed to.

It's those peons who actually want to earn enough so they can live next door to her who she wants to keep on the government dole.

This is NOT a game...though... (Below threshold)

This is NOT a game...though many "star struck" Americans are treating it like one. Those "star struck" Obama fanatics are standing on the very same "thin ice" that we are, and their glee in helping to crack that thin ice by jumping up and down on it will be short-lived should Obama become President. They'll be in the same freezing water that we are...though I tend to think we are better swimmers.

Better "swimmers" we may be, but the water they (and Obama, of cource) are seeking to drop us ALL in is deeper and colder than most of us have seen. Our first thought will be to survive...financially and physically...and the actions we will take to do so will make it harder and harder for the Obama-Pelosi-Reid troika to deliver all the treats they have promised the masses. Tough!

American industry remains the envy of the world (China included) because of one basic principle: FREE ENTERPRISE. Americans can dream, act on their dream, and succeed or fail by their own will, pluck and luck. They are currently driven by the belief that, "Progressive Tax Systems" notwithstanding, in America you have to earn your way in the world...and how much you KEEP should not be based on how much you NEED. Obama wants to change all that, and adopt the philosophy of "From each according to their ability, to each according to their need". The Thirteenth Amendment abolished both slavery AND Involuntary Servitude. Working to satisfy someone else's "needs" is indeed "Involuntary Servitude". I won't do it...and millions like me won't do it. Willingly that is. Sooner or later to GET what we have you have to come and TAKE it. It won't be pretty.

American industry remains the envy of the world (China included) because of one basic principle: PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH. Take a tough-as-nails bouncer who is only 5'4" and a 6'6" bouncer who is made of tissue paper. Who keeps the peace BETTER in the bar? The 6'6" bouncer of course...because no one messes with him! If he can actually fight it is even better, but just the APPEARANCE of strength deters most fights. The 5'4" bouncer practically INVITES bar-fights...and though he wins every one it is hard on the furniture! Obama wants to change all that. He has declared his desire to slow down or ELIMINATE "future combat systems". Look at the population of China, for example, versus the U.S. We depend on state-of-the-art combat systems because numerically we are TINY. Our state-of-the-art combat systems portray us as "Six foot Six"...and allow us to fight that way. Obama wants us to be that "tough-as-nails 5'4" bouncer"...which will only invite "bar-fights". Biden reminded us of that. Peace is not the absence of war. Remember that.

I don't expect the trolls and Obamamaniacs to really take any of this to heart...and I'm sorry about the long post.

But we're all standing on this very thin ice...and the cracking sound is starting to drown out the chants of "Obama...OBAMA!"

Stay dry...stay warm...McCain/Palin '08.

Ever signed your name to anything, big man? You can't even comment with your name or even an email address for a private response, let alone publish a thought that has a permanence of record.

I stand on my principles in a very forthright and public manner.

Your anonymity and distance speak volumes more than your brilliant self-edifying retorts.

Have a relatively uneventful stress-free day, sweetheart.
