Did anyone run the numbers?

A vehicle at 15 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses 800 gallons a year of gasoline. A vehicle at 25 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses 480 gallons a year.
So, the average "Cash for Clunkers" transaction will reduce US gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year. They claim 700,000 vehicles
– so that's 224 million gallons / year. That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil. 5 million barrels of oil is about 1/5 of one day's US consumption. And, 5 million barrels of oil costs about $350 million dollars at $70/barrel
So, we all contributed to spending $3 billion to save $350 million. This means spend approximately $8 to save $1.
Even if the numbers are off by 50% how good a deal was that?
They'll probably do a great job with health care though!!

ACORN in action

Chaos for Glory

This is a stunning video of ACORN workers (ACORN has received $53 Million of our tax payer money) helping what they think is a prostitute who wants to set up a brothel using 13 yr. old girls as prostitutes. The ACORN worker is showing them how to get the loan, claim that as a prostitute she is actually categorized as a 'performing artist' and how to claim the girls as dependants.

Though no crimes may have been committed by law, these people need to be investigated by Congress!

Marriage Is What Brings Us Together..Today

"The Actions of the President and this Lopsided Congress are akin to Prince Humperdink"

I use the analogy today of the 'Marriage Scene' from the movie 'The Princess Bride'. In this scene Prince Humperdink is forcibly constraining Princess Buttercup to marry him against her will. He thinks he has killed her love 'Wesley' and is very smug. Suddenly there is a ruckus outside the gate where he has posted 60 (Interesting Number) guards 'just in case'. Buttercup exclaims at the alter "My Wesley will come for me", to wit Humperdink says "Your Wesley is dead, I killed him myself". Buttercup says "then why is there fear in your eyes" at that moment Humperdink can hear the tussle at the front gate and his men screaming in fear. At this point the minister is droning on through the ceremony and Humperdink interrupts with, "Skip to the end, Skip to the end" the puzzled minister oblivious to the activities outside of the chapel looks bewildered and Humperdink says urgently, "Say Man and Wife!". He does and Buttercup is whisked off to the bridal chamber where she is planning on taking her life. Muttering the whole way "he didn't come for me"

Ok, the fans are already quoting the movie and have left this blog in the dust, but there is a point really.

The Actions of this President and this Lopsided Congress (his 60 guards in the senate) are akin to Prince Humperdink. Here is the president trying to get this behemoth of a 'Reform' bill passed for a government run health care program that is currently ruining the UK. He is forcing the 'Bride' to the altar (that would be the American taxpayer) to marry our future to this bill which will effectively kill capitol ism in this country for the sake of providing health care for all. The scene is set. The hero in this analogy are those town hall folks and senior citizens that are just 'mad as hell' and not going to take it anymore, y'know regular American citizens. Humperdink Obama is yelling to Congress "Skip to the end, Say Man and Wife", in other words "you have the votes pass my bill at any cost and do it NOW!"

There is fear in his eyes because he thought he killed conservatives with his demoralizing presidential victory. After all he has told us to shut up and accused us of causing all the problems he has today.

The twist here is that Wesley sneaks into the bridal chamber (after being 'mostly dead' all day) and says to Buttercup "Did you say I do? If you didn't say it, it didn't happen". Here is the truth in the protests and dissent we are seeing now, we haven't said "I Do" to any proposal in congress and Wednesday night Mr. Obama has one last chance to introduce us to the bill that we will be married to for the rest of our lives (our children's children too). We want to meet this companion, take it out on a date and get to know it and we reserve the right to call off the engagement.

In closing, remember the urgency when we had to have this stimulus bill passed right now or we were going to see unemployment go up to 8%? Most Americans gave him the benefit of the doubt and now that they have spent 150 Billion dollars we are now at 9.7%, the highest unemployment in 26 years. We need to remember the words of former president G.W. Bush:

"Fool me shame on .. uh you, no me. Fool me We won't get fooled again!"

Behind Every Great Man...

For months my wife has been saying 'There is someone behind Obama, he isn't doing all of this on his own'

Hmmm.. I am a bit more skeptical and lean more on the side of Obama being driven by his radical ideals.

...But what if

We know that Hillary heavily influenced Bill's policy in the White House, so could Michelle be the one 'behind the curtain'?

We do see some similarities, after all the Wizard came into his kingdom on gust of hot air!
Following the analogy, we must throw cold water on Wicked Witch of the WEST, click our heels together three times and hope for the best.

Lord knows, since Obama has occupied the White House 'We're not in Kansas anymore'.

Just a light hearted start to what we hope will be a productive week :-)

Barack Obama accused of making 'Depression' mistakes

By Edmund Conway
Published: 9:55PM BST 06 Sep 2009

History repeating itself? President Obama has been accused by some economists of making the same mistakes policymakers in the US made in the Great Depression, which followed the Wall Street crash of 1929. His policies even have the potential to consign the US to a similar fate as Argentina, which suffered a painful and humiliating slide from first to Third World status last century, the paper says.

There are "troubling similarities" between the US President's actions since taking office and those which in the 1930s sent the US and much of the world spiralling into the worst economic collapse in recorded history, says the new pamphlet, published by the Institute of Economic Affairs.

In particular, the authors, economists Charles Rowley of George Mason University and Nathanael Smith of the Locke Institute, claim that the White House's plans to pour hundreds of billions of dollars of cash into the economy will undermine it in the long run. They say that by employing deficit spending and increased state intervention President Obama will ultimately hamper the long-term growth potential of the US economy and may risk delaying full economic recovery by several years.

The study represents a challenge to the widely held view that Keynesian fiscal policies helped the US recover from the Depression which started in the early 1930s. The authors say: "[Franklin D Roosevelt's] interventionist policies and draconian tax increases delayed full economic recovery by several years by exacerbating a climate of pessimistic expectations that drove down private capital formation and household consumption to unprecedented lows."

Although the authors support the Federal Reserve's moves to slash interest rates to just above zero and embark on quantitative easing, pumping cash directly into the system, they warn that greater intervention could set the US back further. Rowley says: "It is also not impossible that the US will experience the kind of economic collapse from first to Third World status experienced by Argentina under the national-socialist governance of Juan Peron."

The paper, which recommends that the US return to a more laissez-faire economic system rather than intervening further in activity, has been endorsed by Nobel laureate James Buchanan, who said: "We have learned some things from comparable experiences of the 1930s' Great Depression, perhaps enough to reduce the severity of the current contraction. But we have made no progress toward putting limits on political leaders, who act out their natural proclivities without any basic understanding of what makes capitalism work."

OMG Watch this!!!
