The Crazies

Posted Tuesday, February 15, 2011, at 9:20 PM

The craziness that is our government under the control of the Democrat Socialists says that THEY should decide what health care we get, and when, and under conditions they approve of, and yet...

...TSA employees in New Jersey have been charged with felonies for stealing tens of thousands of dollars from the people they are suppose to be protecting. TSA agents would steal money and personal items from travelers, and then bribe supervisors to look the other way.

If they are stealing money in Jersey, it is a safe bet that passengers all over the country, have been robbed, in bigger and busier airports.

I can't wait until government employees are in charge of our health care. Better have some cash on hand to bribe your way through treatment.

More craziness...we have "The New GM" Yessiree folks, Government Motors, driven to bankruptcy and failure by unions and government regulations, now have enough of your taxpayer dollars to hand out over $400 million in bonuses. It was mere months ago when Government Motors was bailed out by you, the taxpayer, and billions given in union payoffs and bribes.

GM now has the stones to handout bonuses while the taxpayers suffer through the Obama Recession (soon to be depression). You can afford it, right? You hardware store owners, you truck drivers, you welders and restaurant owners, you can afford more payoffs to union thuggery. What else would you do with this money? Hire people? Expand your businesses? Invest in equipment?

The average union thug will get four grand of your money. I bet you self employed folks wish you could still get four grand "bonus" for driving your business into bankruptcy, and producing a product no one will buy without a government bribe.

It's the crazies, running the show.

Remember how the left bleated out their disapproval for private sector bonuses? And what did Government Motors give you for your hard earned money? The Chevy Volt. That is crazy gone to seed.

More craziness...FIFTEEN tax hikes, slammed onto the backs of small businesses, corporations and families can be found in Comrade Obama's budget. Since the propoganda media will do its best to hide the truth when it comes to Socialist Democrat plans and ideas, let me just point out some of what the producers have to look forward too.

*Raising the income tax rate at which most small business profits face taxation $709 BILLION in the next 10 years. Could anyone with half-a-brain or more think that this stupidity will encourage small business to hire people?

*Raising the capitol gains and dividends 25%!

*Raising the death tax on families $100 BILLION in ten years. Your government, profiting from the death of YOUR love one. Crazy.

*A $321 BILLION dollar tax hike by gouging mortgage deductions, charitable contributions, property taxes, state and local taxes, out of pocket medical expenses and unreimbursed employee business expenses. Oh this will help you sell your home! (NOT)

It's the crazies folks. Pure nuts. There's more...

*New bank taxes of $33 BILLION over ten years. (good luck getting that small business loan)

*New international corporate tax hikes totaling $129 BILLION over ten years. More craziness to make sure that international corporations hire people overseas and not you.

Let's not stop there liberals...

*How about massive new taxes on energy, $120 BILLION over ten years? Because to crazy liberals, you are still not paying enough to heat your home, and small businesses aren't paying enough in manufacturing costs.

*And then let's raise unemployment payroll taxes by $15 BILLION. Sure 'nuff, this is yet another job killer.

*New life insurance company taxes of $14 BILLION. That's right libs, punish those insurance companies that provide a necessary product that helps families. Get those who lose a loved one to turn to the liberal government god.

And less we forget, crazy libs need to get more payoffs to the trial lawyers, Comrade Obama's largest contributors. $300 million in tax hikes, refusing to let companies deduct losses from punitive damages from our friends, the ambulance chasers.

The crazies are running the show.

ABC News has begun to ask, Is the Obama Regime creating a State Run Media? Welcome to the daylight ABC News. You're about two years late to wake up, but better late than never. I think ABC News must be upset that they have not received the bribes and payoffs that NBC has been bathing in. Too bad.

You swim with snakes, and you'll most likely get bitten. It will be interesting to see if ABC News will continue to be a lapdog of the left, or if they will actually turn from their evil ways, and once again engage in actual journalism.

The crazies are running the show...this statement by Sam could easily be overlooked and discarded as less than relevant.

However...if the crazies are perceived by the up and coming citizens (immigrants, young people coming of age) and less than fully engaged citizens of this country as behaving within the norm...one can see how quickly our society can get skewed. Upon that deviation, any attempt to correct or adjust policies, laws, or every day business back to the ream of "normal" will be resisted by the very people who would benefit greatly from the improvements in the first place.

Does anyone believe that this is not done purposefully?

CLUELESS: I agree with 99.99% of what you said. Oh! by the way, I'm not from Nebraska any more, and guess what? I haven't a clue either. I stopped watching the news three or four years ago. It's made me a much less stressful person.

I find that most people have a hard time admitting they are wrong on most blogs. Myself included. I have learned to walk to the center of the political road. Sometimes I have no position on a subject. This brings me to this saying.

"Don't worry about having no position; worry about that

whereby you may effectively become established. Don't worry that no one recognizes you; seek to be worthy of recognition.'

I think we all seek recognition in our own way or we wouldn't be commenting on these blogs.

Right SW..

Don't have a clue.. (well maybe I went to far with that one) you do have a clue.. probably even intelligent or probably even very intelligent for that matter I guess I meant to say very very sheltered and unaware... or tunnel vision.. most people have thier minds made up before they even know they story.. and who is to say that is really what happened?? it's all hear say..

and this is the case with most of americans regardless of geographical location...

The number one mistake people have in this country is already having thier mind made up before something is even presented to them..

for instance... lets say there was a republican presidential candidate who was clearly the best candidate possible and was cleary going to do this country a great service and turn this thing around and everyone could clearly see that without a doubt.. you would still have millions and millions and millions of democrats still vote someone else just because they would not want to have a republican president.. and that is just plain sick and stupid.. and the same would go if it was a democratic candidate who was in the same scenario...

Tell me I am wrong on that???

It is just sick to think we have so much pride or so much hate for one party that it derails us from actually making educated decisions!!!

Oh and one question???

Do any of you feel high and mighty if you slam someone good on this blog or really do some reaserch to type up a strong statement to back up your argument and feel good about it... ???

Like heck ya I sure told Damu or I sure told captainovious or I sure put Sam or Mike in his place with that one...

If you do all I can say is

Good Job buddy you are the Master Mccook NE blogger.. you have won the gold..

I hope no one would ever feel that way or want to feel that way or want to have that title...

could anyone really be proud of that or actually feel inteligent or actually use that as validity to your political knowledge..

Like your over at a buddies house.. saying Oh boy Bobby Joe I sure told them on the blog about the upcoming bill that may or may not pass.. I sure am smart I sure know my politics... I sure told Mikey and Sammy how it is or how it should be..

It's a MCcook NE Blog..

None of us would last a day on capital hill...

Neither would Rush Neither would Olberman or who ever else you have fantasies about while laying in bed...


I'm OUT!!

"especially don't have a clue if we live in little old Mccook , NE..."

This is a pretty scary statement to me. Why do you think people who live elsewhere have a better "clue" than those in McCook? Do you want others to do your thinking for you?

This Nation has seen way way way worse times before.. Like Billions and Billions and Billions times worse times.. and thats a lot.. (great depression)

did we climb out of that??

has this nation with stood everything that has been thrown our way?

Do we wish we could go back and do things differently?? Yes of course..

The things we feel we did wrong we all have someone to blame for it or take the fall don't we??

Adn the good things or the right things we all think it was someone from our party who did right??

It's all opinion.. it's all hear say..

We are not in the white house , or the pentagon , or the CIA or FBI offices , or involved with the congressional house on an hourly daily basis for the last 100 years to know why our government does what it does....

SO we don't know for sure...

especially don't have a clue if we live in little old Mccook , NE...

all we do is watch FOX , watch CNN or surf the net to hear or find stories that are completely distorted in a way to accomadate a certain political party..

(Do you not all know that???)

figure it out and make judgements for yourself and yourself only.. don't listen to anyone else..

It's ok to disagree.. in fact that is what makes this country great..

In the meantime the National Debt has been in the billions and trillions for quite sometime now has it not???

Has this country still moved forward and prospered???


So lets not all get our panties in a bunch just quite yet...


Just Say'in!!!

Speaking of 'Crazy,' I received this, once more, this morning, and the brevity and perfect sanity, just might fit this subject:

""" Let me get this straight . . . .

We're going to be "gifted" with a health care

plan we are forced to purchase and

fined if we don't,

which purportedly covers at least

ten million more people,

without adding a single new doctor,

but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents,

written by a committee whose chairman

says he doesn't understand it,

passed by a Congress that didn't read it but

exempted themselves from it,

and signed by a President who smokes,

with funding administered by a treasury chief who

didn't pay his taxes,

for which we'll be taxed for four years before any

benefits take effect,

by a government which has

already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare,

all to be overseen by a surgeon general

who is obese,

and financed by a country that's broke!!!!!

'What could

possibly go wrong?' """

I just love it.

Here is a demonstration of a comparison using only Million, as the base number, but equaling over Six Billion:


This is a demonstration about having an impact on the poor throughout the world. Very convincing argument.

Keep the Watch
