Giving or taking a few months I spent twenty-seven years in the construction trade as a carpenter, supervisor, contractor and small business owner. Most of that time I was involved in some capacity with building single family homes and home improvement remodeling, but I also had experience with commercial building, such as apartment complexes, warehouses, commercial storage units, office buildings and post offices. At other times I worked on the reconstruction of property damaged by fires, floods or other weather catastrophes such as tornadoes. Over the years I was often required to be the estimator, salesman, draftsman, or poor man’s architect, contractor, supervisor and “nail-pounder.”
In other words at one time or another I have done just about everything in construction from beginning to end to complete a project including obtaining the required licenses, insurances, permits and materials, to including billing and collecting payments.
Yet never in all that time did I ever imagine that I could get away with selling, constructing, remodeling, repairing or billing for the finished products the way these power crazy Democrats are now selling their Congressional bills, regulations and future plans for America.
For example, concerning ObamaCare a few months ago Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said, "But we have to pass the (health care) bill so that you can find out what is in it."
When you consider that the passage of this bill would affect the lives of every American citizen, that just may be the stupidest statement a politician has ever uttered.
We must also remember that no one who voted to pass this health care scam had even read the entire bill nor did anyone have any idea how much it was finally going to cost the American citizens! Yet in order to end the supposed “health care crisis” this unconstitutional bill was rammed through Congress using bribery, coercion and partisan politics and then signed into law by Obama despite the continuing objections by the majority of the American public.
Likewise the Obama-Reid-Pelosi Mob had confidently assured us that once we Americans found out what was in ObamaCare we would all come to love it. Of course that arrogant boast has just been the polar opposite of reality as the more we Americans come to understand the convoluted, bureaucratic mayhem included in ObamaCare the more opposed to it we have become. And despite the outright deceit by some mainstream media outlets stating otherwise, this opposition is in fact increasing not declining.
But what has happened since the passage of ObamaCare is that even their highest “estimated” cost for this plan has all but doubled in price and it hasn’t even gone into effect yet! God only knows how much this health care scam will end up costing the American taxpayers and our future generations.
There has also been the utter disappearance of that supposed “health care crisis” in the Democratic and MSM rhetoric. Before this bill was passed they would have had us believe that people were dying on the streets of every American city because they could not get health care. Now, since it was signed into law, this “health care crisis” is no more, even though it will be years before the law goes into effect. So what happened to all of those sick and dying people who didn’t have health care?
However, if you’re looking for a real health care crisis try finding a doctor who will now accept new Medicare patients since ObamaCare has been passed. Of course you won’t hear about that from the O-R-P Mob or the MSM.
Now for those of you who think that I am just digging up old news here’s the tie in. Yesterday, June 26th, these same Democrats announced that both the House and the Senate had agreed upon a new bill to “reform” Wall Street. It is expected to pass both houses and be signed into law by July 4th. Again this is mainly a partisan bill as only four Republicans voted for their previous versions. This “Dodd-Frank” bill is named after Chris Dodd and Barney Frank, who are also two of the largest recipients of Wall Street campaign contributions, or whatever they are calling these payoffs now.
Without going into detail of how this bill will regulate banks and corporations, as it is all a bunch of baloney anyway, lets just say that Congress has now been able to further distance themselves from how they were really responsible for our economic woes in the first place. And of course they have stated that this bill was necessary due to the “economic crisis.”
What American taxpayers get are more false assurances that this kind of an “economic crisis” will never happen again, more and more bureaucracy and regulations and the false pretence that the government actually knows what it is doing.
What American taxpayers should be asking themselves is why we have this great financial circle of Wall Street, i.e. such as Goldman Sachs, giving so much money to people like Dodd-Franks, then after making bad investments getting bailed out by people like Dodd-Franks, then supposedly being regulated by people like Dodd-Franks, only to again give so much money to people like Dodd-Franks? And it’s all on the taxpayer’s dime. Now this is some big time shell game.
But here from the Washington Post is the kicker:
"It's a great moment. I'm proud to have been here," said a teary-eyed Sen. Christopher J. Dodd (D-Conn.), who as chairman of the Senate Banking Committee led the effort in the Senate. "No one will know until this is actually in place how it works. But we believe we've done something that has been needed for a long time. It took a crisis to bring us to the point where we could actually get this job done."
Now read that again: ” "No one will know until this is actually in place how it works.”
Folks, this is INSANITY.
Do you want to know why Dodd was “teary-eyed?” He and his fellow maniacs are just so overwhelmed that they are actually getting away with this sh..!
Folks, the United States Federal Government is suing the State of Arizona over the passage of an immigration law that is almost word for word with the Federal immigration law. As the U.S. Federal Government represents ‘us’, and even though 70% of ‘us’ support Arizona’s new law, in reality ‘we’ are suing Arizona whether we support the law or not! That’s crazy!
We have legislators passing bills they do not read, do not know what all it includes, do not know how much it will cost, do not know how it will work until after they are passed, and are unconstitutional!
That Ladies and Gentlemen is a classic example of insanity.
There is not an American alive that would have allowed me to tell them that I do not know what your house will look like until I build it, I do not know what it will include until it is completed, or I do not know how much it will cost until it is finished, it is unlawful and against existing building codes and still have given me the go ahead!
No, under those conditions none of you would have allowed me to build your houses or to remodel your kitchens. Yet we are allowing this rabble to steal our children and grandchildren’s futures and Freedoms!
When you consider that most of what this Congress and Administration has pushed down our throats, from the bailouts, the stimulus bill, the omnibus bill, government takeovers of private business, ObamaCare, this Dodd-Franks shell game, the refusal to secure our borders, their lack of response and purpose in dealing with the Gulf oil disaster and the up and coming cap & trade scam, has all been against the will of the majority of the American people it is Democratic insanity run amuck.
If the American people stand by and allow this insanity to continue unchecked then we are even more insane than these power crazed “teary-eyed” lunatics.
May God Help America
November 2010 and 2012 cannot get here soon enough!
