For heaven sakes, even God rested on the 7th day. Can BO spend money any faster...money we don't even have? Any moment now I expect him to rip open his shirt and show us the big S on his chest. Unfortunately, I think he misunderstood and is showing his ass instead. While we're being told to sacrifice and be patient, he's going on date nights, assuring the Muslims that America wants to play nice, and re-structuring the bankruptcy guidelines to fit GM. It won't be long until the government tells us what kinds of cars we can buy, and lord help those who don't adhere. Am I the only one scared of his man and his power plays?
My sister and I were discussing the proposed expenditure for health care reform. Have you noticed that despite the transparency claim he always quotes, you really never have any idea of what type of reforms he plans to make? Let's consider that two of the biggest money-sucking screw-ups in the the US are Medicare and Medicaid. The fraudulent claims number in the thousands for individual agencies, yet no one provides any oversight to rectify the problem. So...these government run agencies can be listed as money-sucking ventures from the tax-payers, yet the government wants to overhaul our entire health care program and tell us how it should be run. Right! What's wrong with this picture?
Speaking of what's wrong. Why isn't the media or some of the commentators on Fox asking the important questions. When announcement of upcoming jobs was made, why didn't someone ask 'where and who will benefit?"
When asked about the statement, VP Joe Biden responded that the answer was outside his payscale. Only the president knows the answer. Does Joe Biden know anything at all?
What about all the czars? The title isn't new, but never before has a president appointed so many to these posts. Currently he has assigned sixteen friends, acquaintances or complete strangers to occupy a desk. I watched Glen Beck explain how these positions function, and they are non-elected individuals, not necessarily qualified in any manner for an area of expertise, and answer ONLY to the President. The original format for government was set so that one branch didn't become too top heavy with power. I'd say there has been a vast change in the model. I'm with Glen in wanting to know why we need a Health Czar when we have just appointed someone as the Director of Healthcare...why a Terror Czar when we have a Department of Homeland Security, and why a Car Czar...although I believe that's to handle the new government interest in GM.
Okay...enough to ponder for today. I'll be back as soon as my blood pressure lowers.
