The SIX OBJECTIVES of OUR CONSTITUTION ARE:
• Secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity;
• Insure domestic Tranquility;
• Promote the general Welfare;
• Form a more perfect Union;
• Establish Justice;
• Provide for the common defence.
No where in here does it say that the purpose is to support everyone within our boarders from the cradle to the grave.
No where in here does it say that we are supposed to bail out greedy corporate executives that manage their corporations into oblivian while they are taking home millions in pay, perks and bonuses.
All of the bailouts should be canceled. That money would be better put to use by allowing responsible people to be sucessful.
Obama, with the help of congress, has become a reverse Robin Hood. He steals from the poor and gives to the rich. If you think that there is anything in this stimulus plan that is going to create a living wage for anyone but the rich, then you have been smokin' too much whacky tobacky.
Since taxes were brought up and this was sent to me a while ago. I thought I would share it.
How many zeros in a billion? This is too true to be funny.
The next time you hear a politician use the word 'billion' in a casual manner, think about whether you want the 'politicians' spending YOUR tax money.
A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of it's releases.
A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.
While this thought is still fresh in our brain...let's take a look at New Orleans ...It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division..
Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu (D) is presently asking Congress for 250 BILLION DOLLARS to rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number...what does it mean?
Well... if you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans (every man, woman, and child) you each get $516,528.
Or... if you have one of the 188,251 homes in New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787.
Or... if you are a family of four...your family gets $2,066,012. Washington , D. C

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?
Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago...and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.
We had absolutely no national debt...We had the largest middle class in the world...and Mom stayed home to raise the kids .
Can you spell 'politicians!'
And I still have to press '1' for English.
One minute I'm reading about Ol' Limpballs and the Republican train of thought and how we're being led down the path of Communism and socialization by Obama's idea of putting people back to work and suddenly I'm hearing 1Billion minutes ago, etc. Christ walked in the Earth.
Now, first - I'm not a big believer in much more than a supreme being (period) - not calling, him or her anything other than that. Multitude of faiths and beliefs in my family.
But, near as I can tell if BC was before Christ and if the year is now 2009 - I would assume he didn't walk the earth - 694,444.444444444444444444444444444444 years ago if he was killed and born again at 33 or 35. Just a thought - who's calculator is broken - now.
Now, back to ol'limballs and the Republican party and the recession and putting American's back to work - for eloquence and ease of understanding the past and the present economic problems and the new or is it old Deal. Seems, Roosevelt was accused of sending us down that communism and socialism road way back when he former The New Deal, CCC, etc.
Remember electrification, roads, museums, artists, writers, Dams for electricity - locks and even that TVA with it's waste disposal problems (they did become careless) wow, imagine that.
For the ease of people who's minds are short, weren't born or calculators aren't working might I suggest the following website and pretty pictures to explain the old new deal of Roosevelt era. And then maybe you should replace electrification then to alternative energies - now. Roads and bridges then to many that haven't been repaired since the 50's. You'll get the idea - I have faith.
