Why are All the Leftist Politicians Who Hate the Rich…So Filthy Rich?

That’s right. Socialist Holland owns not one, not two, but three homes in Cannes on the French Riviera. Unbelievable.

In America let’s think of the biggest haters of the rich. Obama is now filthy rich. He has been since selling his autobiography after getting elected to the U.S. Senate, and buying a $2,000,000 Chicago home (with help from a convicted felon). Once Obama leaves the White House (hopefully soon), he’ll spend the rest of his life getting paid millions for books and $200,000 a pop for speeches to the business groups he hates so much.

Have you ever noticed how almost all the leftist politicians who hate and want to punish the rich with draconian tax increases…are filthy rich themselves? Confusing, isn’t it?

Actually, once you know the truth it’s really quite easy to understand.

Take France’s new Socialist President Francois Holland. He never stops talking about his dislike and disgust for the rich. He is almost more obsessed with hate for the rich than Obama is. Yet it turns out Holland is…drumroll please…filthy rich himself.

There’s room in Washington for ‘Big Dummy’

Congress’ failure to figure out the budget mess means the hole we’ve been digging for decades isn’t any closer to getting filled in. The mess that has been created by the politicians in Washington reminds me of a recent addition to my household.

Congress’ failure to figure out the budget mess means the hole we’ve been digging for decades isn’t any closer to getting filled in. The mess that has been created by the politicians in Washington reminds me of a recent addition to my household.

Last year my wife had the bright idea to add a second dog to our already crowded house of three kids and a cat. She got me to agree to this by promising to help take care of the dog, including picking up the poop, walking it and taking responsibility for various other things that come with pet ownership.

Since in the previous month she had mentioned something about having another baby, this seemed like a good compromise to help her meet her maternal needs. Continue reading “There’s room in Washington for ‘Big Dummy’”

Voting is a lot like dating two girls

So far today I have seen six political ads on television, have been called by two opinion research poll companies and had four recorded announcements by candidates who are running in the primaries. And it’s not even noon on a Monday! As I sat back and began feeling overwhelmed by the all this undeserved attention it made me realize that running for office is a lot like dating someone who possesses ulterior motives. But even women who have sought relationships with me haven’t given me as much attention as the candidates who are obviously obsessed with my vote. Normally I should be flattered by all the attention but, to be honest, I find the whole process like being stalked. No matter where I turn they’re there, the “CANDIDATES.” It’s like being a victim in a horror movie the only difference is that instead of being lunged at with a knife, I’m being assaulted with advertisements, calls and campaign literature which keeps the guys who collect my recycling extremely busy.

Immigration reform is simple

The immigration law signed by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer a few days ago sent shock waves through a nation divided by the issue of immigration. Now, I must warn you that what you are about to read might shock your conservative sensibilities and cause you to throw things at your screen. Before you label me as a liberal writer of tripe, I urge you to read this to the end and give it some serious consideration.

The immigration law signed by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer a few days ago sent shock waves through a nation divided by the issue of immigration. Now, I must warn you that what you are about to read might shock your conservative sensibilities and cause you to throw things at your screen.  Before you label me as a liberal writer of tripe, I urge you to read this to the end and give it some serious consideration.

As most know, entering this country without proper authorization from the federal government via the Department of Immigration and Naturalization is a felony.  People that enter the United States illegally are felons, law breakers, criminals, scofflaws, bad guys, etc. We should throw them all in jail, Continue reading “Immigration reform is simple”

America’s Long Dark Shadow

When considering the state of our nation’s economy and the uncertainty surrounding the new unfunded healthcare entitlement and where our country is headed, it is important that we focus on what is real. In this case, the tree that represents our government and the leaders we elect to guide us into the future so that our children and grandchildren will have a brighter and more prosperous future.

Entitlement programs don’t grow on trees, just their shadows

By Leonard Curry

On the heels of the healthcare vote and the economic uncertainty facing our country, I am reminded of an insightful quote from Abraham Lincoln: 

“Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it – the real thing is the tree.”

When considering the state of our nation’s economy and the uncertainty surrounding the new unfunded healthcare entitlement and where our country is headed, it is important that we focus on what is real. In this case, the tree that represents our government and the leaders we elect to guide us into the future so that our children and grandchildren will have a brighter and more prosperous future.

Airport Security Measures are Window Dressing

Okay, let me get this straight. Some Nigerian terrorist attempted to take down a U.S. airliner on Christmas day using liquid explosives. That much I understand very easily. A lot of people still hate the United States — apparently all the liberals were wrong. It wasn’t Bush they hate. It’s America.

If government bureaucrats and politicians did their jobs, screening Grandma wouldn’t be necessary

Okay, let me get this straight. Some Nigerian terrorist attempted to take down a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day using liquid explosives.  That much I understand very easily. A lot of people still hate the United States — apparently all the liberals were wrong. It wasn’t Bush they hate. It’s America.

As I start to look at the facts and consequences of this case I start to get confused.

This much we know: The alleged terrorist’s father warned U.S. officials that he thought his son had gone off the reservation and was up to no good.  U.S. bureaucrats at the State Department put him on some sort of “watch list” which we have now learned is pretty meaningless.

We know this because the terrorist has a U.S. visa that is not immediately revoked. Rather, the nice people looking out for you and me at the State Department put a note in his file indicating he should be examined with further scrutiny the next time he applies for a new visa.

Terrorist (he has a real name that wouldn’t surprise you is one of a terrorist, but we’ll just call him terrorist. Okay, his real name is Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab and I’ll take the lashings for suggesting someone with an Arabic sounding name you can’t pronounce doesn’t make them a terrorist) proceeds to pay cash for a a one-way ticket to the U.S. and checks no bags.

Crist and Atwater both full of…

Crist is apparently trying to frame Rubio as something less than genuine after Rubio said he would have accepted “non-recurring” dollars from the Obama stimulus plan. Rubio has been a critic of the $787 billion plan and of Crist for having been Obama’s biggest Republican In Name Only who helped him get it passed. Rubio asserts there is a big difference in accepting the dollars and actively lobbying for the stimulus package as Crist did.

Two empty suits with no sense of shame

By Chris Ingram

In what has to be the most jaw-dropping and shameless statement since he denied knowledge of Barack Obama’s recent visit to Florida, and denying having supported the stimulus package before that, Governor Charlie Crist had the audacity to say he likely would not debate Marco Rubio and suggested the reason is because Continue reading “Crist and Atwater both full of…”
