The collapse of American Values?

For many years we have been hearing about the decline of our society, if you are interested in history that is a pattern that is worthy of your interest.  We hear words like tolerance and phrases like “cant we all just get along” the reality is that for the most part No we cant all just get along.

There is one thing that we all have in common, it is a small thing really but we are all human, we may not speak the same language, we may not like the same foods, but we all laugh the same and we cry the same.

We experience life in the same ways, though for some of us in vastly different circumstances.

We try to do the best we can but sometimes we fall short.

the President is right

As much as it Pains me to say this, the debt has gone too far to be able to manage it with cuts alone.

We are going to have to raise taxes, so on that issue the President is right, however everyone is going to have to “chip in” as the President also said, we can exempt the very very poorest of us certainly however anyone living 200 percent above the poverty line should pay something even if it is just a small amount.

The one thing that we must do here is to not waste any more of this money.

We simply cannot afford to fund radio and TV, and Gas and Oil, and Corn, and Farming, we have to use this money wisely.

If that does not happen, then financially we cannot recover.

So yes, call it revenue or taxes that is something that must be done, and it can be done really it can but we must have a special account where this money is collected and it will not be spent on things that does not directly reduce the debt.

No more Bailouts, no more Arts and humanities, programs, no more waste.

We must find a method to deal with this issue and fix it, otherwise what happened yesterday on the stock market will only be a drop in the bucket. We are seeing just the beginning of a huge issue that could cause millions and millions of Americans to be homeless, while banks hold empty homes, hostage, and senators draw ever increasing paychecks to allegedly betray the American people to our enemies.

Sounds like a movie but it is playing out in the news every day.

We are going to have to raise taxes to deal with this issue however, only if we have a balanced budget amendment to the constitution otherwise we might as well go back to the stone ages and default on everything.

If you have a leaking boat, and the water is getting higher, eventually if you do not fix the cause of the leak the boat will sink, sounds pretty simple right, well it is, and the leak must be fixed. The Tax code is antiquated and outdated, it simply must be fixed, and the only way to do that is to make it so simple that a cave man can do it, a flat tax is the only thing that makes any real sense.

senate working against America?

Is the Senate and Harry Reid allegedly working against the American people?

In a recent news report, this headline came up.

US Senate Votes For Repeal of Ethanol Subsidies, on the surface this might seem like a good thing, but is it really as good as it might seem to be?

Lets think about this for a moment, First were putting our food in our gas tanks, this is by order of law.

Second lets consider the effect that this will have not only in the cost of fuel, but in the cost of other things.

With the Ethanol subsidies gone, the cost of this will have to be passed on to the consumer, (voters) like you and me, so expect 12 to 15 cents a gallon increase in the cost of fuel.

Now lets have a clear look at what is going to happen next, Ethanol must be created from corn, which has caused the price of corn to go up.

This in turn has caused the price Dairy products such as milk to go up.

As a consequence the cost of meat, has gone up.

This “trickle down effect” has created a serious problem for America and it leads right to the door of Harry Reid.

Should harry reid resign because he allegedly has disgraced the Senate with his ignorance?

Did Harry know this was going to happen we dont know, but one thing is for sure, they had the ability to make it right the first time but they failed to do it, why is that?

Want to know how easy it would have been to make this work out right?

Just reduce the requirement of ethanol to gasoline ratios, and over night, the cost of all these things would have gone down.

But that is not what they did, what they did was to pass the cost of the ethanol directly on to the consumer, that is the voter.

You see just how little they the politicians care about you, who have to fill your tanks with expensive ethanol laced gas products.

You see just how little they think about you as a voter when they do these things.

It is Amazing to watch what these people do, because it shows you just how little they care about America.

  • They concentrate on things like trying to criminalize the Internet, (allegedly)
  • They do things that benefit themselves, but do not include the people in those same benefits.
  • They life a life that is far above what any American could afford to live, yet never consider that the voters are watching.
  • They think that you are so dumb and ignorant that you will never figure out what they are doing.

The truth is that most all of those Senators up there need to be voted out of office, because they are not doing the peoples business.

They need to be voted out to send a message that the American people are to come first now last.

They need to be voted out because they are moss backed and have forgotten where they came from.

They need to be voted out because they have been up there too long living off the American people.

 

Vote them out in 2012, no matter who it is, vote them out.
