I confess that I took some literary license here. Senator Robert C. Byrd, (D-WV) actually cast his vote for “health care reform” and proclaimed, “”This is for my friend Ted Kennedy, aye.” He did not mention his constituency, or the people of the United States. It is thought that later today there will be a meeting of the Robert W. Byrd admiration and self adulation society where the Exalted Cyclops is expected to nominate something to be named after him to add to the list of 30 plus Robert W. Byrd roads, buildings, institutions, etc. You know for the people. You have to give the people something. Wouldn’t be right otherwise. I nominate an insane asylum.
Surprised? General Phil Sheridan famously said, “If I owned Hell and Texas I would rent out Texas and live in Hell.” I think Algore certainly would prefer Hell over Texas. But, I digress. How about that Rick Perry, governor of the Great State of Texas.
Governor Perry was addressing a group in Dallas yesterday (16 December 2009) when he disclosed where Algore was residing now. Governor Perry was at one time a Democrat. He was chairman of the Texas Campaign committee for Algore when he ran for President. Governor Perry was being quizzed about his past unfortunate associations. Someone in the crowd asked, “Did you get religion? Did he get religion?” and “What has happened since then?”
“I certainly got religion,” was Governor Perry’s reply, “I think he’s gone to hell.”
Upon hearing the line, the room exploded with laughter and applause.
“I think they agree,” Perry said after the room quieted down.
This was all as reported by the Dallas Morning News. Now I am not sure why I am mentioning this at all. Algore causing Americans everywhere to explode with laughter for years is old news. The man is a hoot I tell you.
This story has been around for a few days. “Exclusive: IRS hires “hundreds” for new wealth unit”
You heard it here first, exclusive! Expect a future update to this story, perhaps, Exclusive: IRS hires “thousands” for new squeeze the Washingtons unit. It will be a necessity with out of control Congressional spending. All of the talk about wealth and taxes is nothing but a diversion to take attention away from their run on bankrupting the country.
When health care is a reality, our national debt exceeds 14 trillion dollars, and the reality sets in that private wealth will not help, everyone will suffer. I wouldn’t gloat about some citizens in this country paying 60%, and more. I am sure we will all be there. Here’s more bad news. Wealthy citizens paying 60%, and more, are still far better off than you will be when you start paying six of every ten dollars to satisfy Congress’s voracious appetite for creating debt and tax slaves.
Here’s more bad news. Tax the wealthy at 90% and a significant number will still be wealthy. The ones that finally throw in the towel will either be competing with you for your miserable tax slave job, or, will go on the public dole. You all know what proverbally rolls down hill. You better duck because you are about to be hit by a big stinky, brown ball picking up momentum at this very moment.
We are a freedom loving people. We start plotting, at an early age, life without parents. Our freedom. Our own space. Do what we want to do when we want to do it. This is a common thread at every level of our society. Why would anyone want to submit to “father” Harry Reid, “mother” Nancy Pelosi, and a “funny” godfather like “Barney Franks.”
The Danish Foreign Ministry believes that there is no place for Christmas trees at the United Nations COP15 climate summit. Foreign Minister Svend Olling said that participants should not be subject to Christmas symbols such as fir trees. See the story, “Christmas trees banned for climate summit.”
The interesting side story is that banning limos and private jets was never considered. The climate hypocrites would benefit by hearing a lecture from Ed Begley, Jr. about how to walk the environmentalist’s walk and not just talk about it (and what others should do.)
I was just reading an article, “Reid Compares Opponents of Health Care Reform to Supporters of Slavery.” Is this guy for real? Did people in the state of Nevada really vote for this mindless twit? Surely there were pre-election clues to his instability. Nevadans! You can do better. Vote this mindless twit out of office.
Personally, I believe that supporters of Harry Reid, MT-Nevada, are obviously supporters of ignorance.
