HDR 193: What Do Obama and Madoff Have in Common?
ALOHA, ALL!! What’s a Ponzi scheme? The liberal press and pundits are choking on their self-righteous saliva about how Rick Perry keeps calling Social Security a Ponzi scheme. Guess what? He’s right. Here’s a basic characteristic os a Ponzi scheme: A fraudulent investment plan in which the investments of later investors are used to pay earlier investors. Sure sounds like social security to me – Bernie Madoff would be proud. How many of you younger than 65 actually think you’ll get what you paid into social security? If you do, then vote for 0bama in 2012 because you’re about as gullible as you can get. Perry defended his stance in an editorial in USA Today: Perry Op-Ed: I’m ‘Honest’ About Social Security
More Ponzi-ness. Obama the new Ponzi… | The Black Sphere Kevin Jackson is a Facebook friend of mine. He’s got some great one-liners in this article: “Obama reminded us that he is the exquisite showman minus the show.” And “Obama is a blind-folded man riding a unicycle on the rim of an active volcano wondering where the heat is coming from.” You gotta read this one!
This is Your Brain Stuck on Stupid…Perpetually. Debbie Wasserman Schultz: It’s ‘Baloney’ to Say Stimulus Didn’t Work | CNSnews.com Thank you, Debbie! When Nancy Nitwit lost her visible position as Speaker of the House, I wondered who the next nitwit would be. You are a wealth of material – the gift that keeps on giving!!!!
DUH! Dems starting to think Obama could lose « Hot Air “The only question remaining will be whether they will watch as Obama drags down Democrats into massive losses in November 2012, or whether they can convince him to step aside so that they can salvage what they can with a different Democratic nominee at the top of the ticket.”
HDR Readers are very alert! Several of you wrote to me about Barry’s gaffe during his big jobs speech: No, Lincoln was not a founder of the Republican Party. I read that this line was “off-teleprompter” so Barry once again puts his foot in his mouth when he goes rogue and doesn’t read what TOTUS tells him to read. So much for this brilliant person who thinks there are 57 states and we have “corpse” men in the military. (As an aside….LOVE the looks on Biden’s & Boehner’s faces in this clip!!) Several of you also sent me this link: Blog: PBS alters transcript to hide Obama gaffe And we contribute tax dollars to this so-called news outlet.
PASS THIS BILL NOW! Obama Said to Send Congress Jobs Legislation Tomorrow “Obama is planning an announcement in the White House Rose Garden tomorrow at which he’ll again urge quick passage of the proposal and will send the legislation to lawmakers in the evening…” The bill went to Congress Monday – Typical Barry tactics: send it late in the day when everyone is tired. I’m surprised he didn’t wait until Friday. Of course, still no insight on how it’s paid for.
A Possible Earthquake in New York? New York Special Election Could Spell Trouble for Obama – US News and World Report “If the Republicans do pick up the seat, it could signal that despite Democrats’ efforts to change the national conversation, public confidence in President Obama is continuing to pull the party down.” This is Weiner’s old seat – A Republican has not held that seat since 1923.
Progress in That State Up North. Michigan Takes on Welfare Reform “In the national effort to overcome dependence on government, Michigan has just moved one step forward toward ensuring that welfare promotes self-reliance. On Tuesday, Governor Rick Snyder (R) signed legislation to place a four-year time limit on cash assistance benefits for welfare recipients.” (Editor’s Note: A true Buckeye can never say the name of that state, but refers to it as TSUN.)
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO GLENN BECK? Glenn Beck TV Launches Today, Already Bigger Than Oprah’s Network “Glenn Beck launches his much awaited Internet-based program today on his GBTV network and The Wall Street Journal notes that the early subscriber numbers point to a potentially lucrative payout for the former Fox News host.” UPDATE: I just saw Beck on O’Reilly’s show – I sure wish Bill would stop stealing my material. Plus, they were talking about Ponzi schemes! Geez…..I guess great minds think alike 😉
Finally, At Least One Person on the “Super Committee” Has Some Guts. Editorial: Gutting Defense Won’t Solve Debt Crisis – Investors.com “Firing a shot across the committee’s bow was Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., who announced to a conservative group Thursday, “I’m off the committee if we’re going to talk about further defense cuts.”
Final Thought: “A man is his own easiest dupe, for what he wishes to be true he generally believes to be true.” Demosthenes
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN 2012!!
