Whenever austerity measures and budget cutbacks are discussed there is an immediate chorus of “Nooooo’s” that come from the left. Along with their tried-and-true name-calling and mudslinging and claims that it’s a “war on the poor” , “it’s a war on children” and that millions of people will die if they don’t get their food stamps or other entitlements in a timely fashion. Lately, they have even latched on to a nonemotional argument namely that austerity measures and reduced government spending will cripple the slowly healing economy. These are the same economic illiterates who wholeheartedly support “Obamacare” otherwise known as “Obamatax”. Even the Nancy Pelosi and dirty Harry Reid all the way up to the president with all of his epic wisdom have voiced the same concern about spending cuts…

To the extent that their ideas regarding reduced spending could hamper our nonexistent recovery every single first year economics student… And most fifth-graders know that you don’t raise taxes in the middle of her recovery or during a recession. Why then is nobody talking about the disastrous effects which will most certainly follow the largest tax increase in the history of our Republic?

The joint committee on taxation released a report early this year on the tax provisions associated with the affordable care act. The report identified 21 tax increases included in this bill which totaled over $1 trillion… Which was much more than the initial assessment which surprises nobody. In fact this estimate is twice the 500 billion estimate produced at the time the law was passed under less than aboveboard ways. Hasn’t anybody stopped to consider the impact of the government pulling another $1 trillion out of the economy? How about huge amounts of money that will be used by the 20 million or so Americans who up until now didn’t have healthcare premiums to pay? How about the billions of dollars in premium increases that will have to be paid under this new law so that 70-year-old women have reproductive care? This doesn’t even take into account the loss of income that millions of Americans will experience when their jobs are cut back to part-time status to avoid the law. Forbes recently reported that instead of the $2500 per family decrease in healthcare spending Obama care will provide the real number appears to be an increase of $7450 for a typical family of four each year. Every dollar that is spent on healthcare premiums is another dollar that isn’t being spent to stimulate the economy. In short over $1 trillion and possibly as much as $2 trillion will be extracted from the economy in the next 10 years at a time when it is barely limping along as it is. It’s far as I’m concerned the economic consequences are scarier than the health consequences of this huge new tax. Why is no one talking about this? Ohhhh… nevermind.

But didn’t Obama say that everyone’s premiums would go down? What aboout the $2,500 savings for a family of four that he ran for office on and sold this plan to a very skeptical nation with?

Dirty Business as Usual at California High Speed Rail
From the article:
Out of the entire universe of those who could have won the first phase construction contract for California’s high speed rail boondoggle, who would stand out as the last person who would win it if there were no political patronage.
Put another way, who is the most likely person to win it if there is political patronage?
Both questions have the same answer: Richard Blum, the husband of California senator Diane Feinstein.
So, who won the contract? Blum, of course, as the principle owner of Tutor Perini, the lead firm in the three-firm consortium selected by the California High Speed Rail Authority.
Yes, Diane, it really does look that bad to us little people.
A High Low Bid
The Perini-Zachary-Parsons bid was the lowest received from the five consortia participating in the bidding process, but “low” is a relative term. The firms bid $985,142,530 to build the wildly anticipated first section of high speed rail track that will tie the megopolis of Madera to the global finance center of Fresno. Do the division, and you find that the low bid came in at a mere $35 million per mile.
And that doesn’t include the cost of rolling stock (that’s engines and cars to the normal among us). Nor does it include the cost of electrifying the route. Does it at least include the cost of land acquisition? No, it does not.
As this fiasco progress, remember that this $35 million per mile represents the best California can do on the section of track the High on Crack Speed Rail Authority selected to go first because it will be the cheapest.
Some background on this company:
High-Speed Rail bidding practice questionable the winner’s checkered past has a proven record of high cost over runs.
The Feds put together a task force to go after construction fraid, overruns and safety violations. Perini has been caught doing such things over and over again. They are absolutely ridiculous in California projects. It is like DBE fronting is a part of its business model. Overall fraud appears to be a part of that model also.

According to the Seattle News some of the Perini headlines read: “In February, Tutor-Saliba and Perini agreed to pay $19 million to settle racketeering and fraud allegations in a San Francisco airport project.” “In 2004, Perini agreed to pay the federal government $998,500 to settle fraud claims in the construction of an embassy building in Venezuela.” “The companies are embroiled in an 11 – year legal battle over $16 million in extra costs on a Los Angeles subway job.” “Perini sued for more than $170 million in cost overruns on three New York City projects during the 1990s before settling for about $22 million.”

“A Girl Who Knows Her Own Mind”
Just one girls take on what’s happening in the world today …. The ongoing struggle between Good vs Evil and Right vs Wrong and yes, it’s cousin…
Right vs. Left

The World Has Gone Crazy!

I can’t help but sometimes just scratch my head and wonder ….just what is wrong with everyone’s thinking all of a sudden? Is it me who has changed or is it everyone else around me? I tend to think it must be something in the water. Most troubling to me is that the people who are demostrably more whacked out than the rest of us ALL hold positions of influence and power in this country. Let me give you some examples of the types of lunacy I am referring too. 1. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi- This woman is third in line to be the POTUSA should (god forbid!) something happen to B. Hussein Obama and Joe Biden. Wouldn’t you think this lady would someone you could take seriously sometimes? Last week she was speaking before a large group of hispanic’s (most of whom were obviously illegal aliens) and rather than deliver a message asking them to respect our laws…learn our language… and immigrate into our country legally….what does she do instead? She calls for an end to the immigration raids and mass deportations of illegals that we have been carrying over the course of the last several years. She claims that protecting our borders and building our giant fence is “unamerican”. And then tells them all that they are the patriots? (I could not make this up) and then she closed by encouraging them to continue breaking our laws. ! Nancy Pelosi Video – Nancy telling illegal aliens how patriotic they are for breaking our laws and invading our country

Here is my favorite video blog on Nancy Pelosi brought to us courtesy of my favorite ranting clear thinker …”drinkingwithbob”

2. Barney Frank and Chriss Dodd- How do these two chalatans manage to keep getting re-elected? Barney Frank; the only openly homosexual congressman was also the guy who back in July of 2008 (just before the crisis hit in earnest) testified that “Freddie and Frannie are fine …they are solvent, they are safe investments now everybody” and as Chairman of the Financial Services Committee, one of the committee’s responsible for overseeing both Freddie and Fannie. This man is an expert at screwing things up big then blaming it on someone else. This man should have lost his job 100 times in the last 6 months for gross stupidity. And if that weren’t enough our government now has the person who played a significant role in screwing things up spearheading the efforts to fix it? Why isn’t the press having a field day with this numbskull 3. Acting like a lunatic isn’t isolated to members of congress …unfortunately this countries obsession with pornography and creating as many sex offenders as possible out of normal law abiding citizens has really caught fire. With no state or county Judge or District Attorney wanting to be left out of the contest of who can make the most assinine rulings and/or prosecutions this most recent case comes to us by way of the great state of Idaho!. There a 19 yr old man has been charged with two counts of statutory rape and is currently getting ready to go on trial where he could be sentenced to life in prison. Who was the victim? It is the 15 year old (then) girl who proudly carries his baby and wears his ring as his wife! Yes they made the mistake of doing exactly what every single one of us did (or tried to do or wanted to do or dreamth about doing..Usually in the back of a car) …got caught and since the girl could not legally give him consent he may go away for life! Of course she apparently could consent to marriage and no one seems to think anythingof the fact that she is another preganant teen …no all eyes are focused on the boyfriend who “raped” her …hello!!??
