Boehner to Obama: Pass GOP Bill To Create Jobs

House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) sent up a notice to President Obama asking him “review” House Republican proposals to help small businesses, the real engine of our economic growth, create jobs.
Seriously? You want Obama to review a bill to "create" actual jobs? I'm sorry, but Obama is not about creating jobs. He does his best to destroy and eliminate jobs. So far, over 4 million this year alone.

But Rep Boehner, you are still playing politics with people's lives here. If you want to impress your base, the Republicans of the Americas, then put some meat in that bill. Things like this ...
• Allow small businesses to take a tax deduction equal to 20 percent of their income.

• Let small businesses join together to purchase health insurance for their workers the way large businesses and labor unions do.

• Enact genuine legal reform and policies that incentivize wellness to reduce health care costs for small businesses.

• Lower taxes for all taxpayers by reducing the current 15 percent rate to 10 percent and reducing the current 10 percent rate to 5 percent. This will provide an immediate increase in income to every taxpaying family in America and free up capital to help small businesses hire more workers.

• Expand health savings accounts (HSAs) to provide additional flexibility to small businesses in providing health care to their employees.
... really do nothing to create jobs.

Rep Boehner, if you really want to create jobs, then put in these changes.

  • Place a one year freeze on Capital Gains taxes.
  • Provide a one year moratorium on small-business and self-employment taxes.
  • In addition to providing tax breaks for employees, reduce the taxes on employers. Reduce the top tax rate of 28, 33 and 35% down to 25%. Allow employers to keep more of their money so that they can AFFORD to employ more people.
  • Eliminate or drastically reduce minimum wage requirement. Allow more young people to find employment - they have a 52% unemployment now.
  • Implement a permanent 50% cut on corporate taxes. The US is the highest anywhere.
  • Mandate that any pork spending be done one bill at a time.
  • Mandate that any bill or spending measure can not have an amendment attached that is not related to the primary bill or spending measure.
  • Make it illegal to give federal money to private companies (ie. subsidies, stimulus).
  • Pass new laws making it unconstitutional, let alone illegal, for the federal government to take over and operate a private industry. (something tells me this is already illegal but no one wants to take a stand for some reason)
  • Stop funding Arts and Science unless it is related to our national security.
With these options, you can really kick-start this economy. More so than providing federal funds to help stock vending machines. But, you have to have the guts to do what is right, not just what is expedient.

Is This Mexico?

Tonight's Monday Night Football game was partly officiated in spanish. And, we were gifted with those spanish version of traditional NFL commercials as well. We were even blessed to have the game announcers trying their hand at spanish live on air.

All this is not pretty.

I know this was in "celebration" of Mexican Heritage Week, or something like that. But... come on. Football is an AMERICAN icon. Are there any football teams in Mexico? Are there any left in Spain?


This is AMERICA. Quit screwing with our culture.

Hey, those of you upset right now about what I am complaining about, think about this. How about we have a week celebrating White American Culture week. Would you be OK with that?

[Update:] My bad... (its worse)... It is Hispanic Heritage MONTH!! We get this all month long?

Coal Industry Helping Terrorists

That seems the be the new push from the glo-BULL wahmin crowd.

But a number of U.S. intelligence and military studies recently made public describe how man-made climate change plays into the hands of terrorist groups in many countries -- and specifically, aggravates the war in Afghanistan by giving a boost to the Taliban and its al Qaeda allies.

The studies detail a number of ways in which global warming is creating new headaches for the U.S. military around the world.

Like the other studies, it details how terrorist groups often are helped global warming's increasing droughts -- especially in poor countries.
And, who are the greatest polluters leading to global warming, according to the experts in all known knowledge? The Coal Industry.

Therefore, the coal industry is helping terrorists.

Simple, huh?
Afghanistan is now 11 years into a drought with no end in sight. Scientists say it fits the pattern long predicted for global warming,
Coal usage leads to drought. Drought is proof of global warming. Stop using coal and you will end drought and save the world from terrorism.

The Decline And Fall of Nobel

I saw the story this morning. I am dumbfounded and flabbergasted.

The Nobel committee keeps downgrading the worth of all previous Nobel prizes. When Nobels are given to terrorists and people who have done nothing at all .... on anything, then the value of all other Nobels are made completely worthless.

His award was given for his "efforts" in promoting "understandings" with the Muslim world. In addition, for his "efforts" to push for anti-nuclear proliferation.

I'm sorry, but when did he do these things? Was it when he forced Israel under his tanks tracks. oh sorry, he is anti-military, so under the wheels of his PRIUS.

And, when has he pushed for reductions in nuclear missiles as president? Oh sure, he played that hand while candidate Obama, but I really can't recall when he did so as President.

So, all we have now is a Nobel Peace prize for attacking Israel.

Which of course, is what Jimma and Bubba-Hotep did, and have been doing (for jimmy c at least), as well.

So, from now on, the Nobel Peace Prize will be forever known as the Nobel Prize for Jew-Haters.

Nobel is rolling in his grave.
