Anyone can make a mistake. But when a parade of Obama administration cabinet picks -- Richardson, Daschle, Killefer, and Lynn -- turn out to have ethics or tax problems, and are actual lobbyists or lobbyists by any other name, you start to wonder. But why be surprised? You expect stuff like that from today's Democrats.

Yes the word "delusion" is an understatement as we recover from 8 years of Bushisms.

That is the reality and liberals and the other lot shoud not be deluded by how "plucky" we should all be right now!

get you a copy of Patriot Future by Milton Johns. Written in 1997 - foreshadowed and predicted much of what is happening today - even predicted a Homeland Security type department being formed some 4-5 years before it had.

Obama's campaign was built on lies so it is no surprise that it is already starting to unravel at the seams.

I look forward to an article about how Social Security is just "socialism" and must be done away with.

That way the GOP will lose the over-65 age group - the only one McCain won.

Social security was always solvent until the libs started adding in disabled kids and every other person who never worked a day in their lives.Then if you do work and get sick,the denial system of SSDI drags you out thru 2-3 years then you end up before a ss judge...social security isnt for workers,its a disabilty welfare plan for retards rejects and yoyos that have never worked.Yet for workers they keep raising the age to get your retirement and say well your living longer now.........scrap it and start over.Before the entire govmnt PONZI scheme collapses right along with the govmnt..65.5 trillion in debt is what our great govmnt is in debt for.

The new democrats and progressives are the new KKK/Black power/fascists/nazis/racists. They are power hungry, and do not like any other opinion to their agendas. I would be very leary of their agendas, and would not listen to their biased media. I would not listen to their "news" "opinion" peddlers nor buy their crap! The only silver lining of this $$$ shakeup, is that I hope for the downfall of these hypocrits businesses and careers! Proud and no nonsense fiscal conservative forever!

You got that right, having been at the desk on the iside! Also, these gov workers are a bunch of parasites who live off these funds as well, in the form of wages and benefits/retirements.

We must take back our country! When we are into the bottom of the Depression, which is upcoming, the blackhearted powerful will be exposed. And the Obama voters will be very angry.

I know this absolutely first-hand from working for the federal government some years ago. All those funky days you see on the calendar? Those are PAID federal holidays. And in some cases, if you choose to come into the office, you are paid DOUBLE.
Also you can build up sick days! At the end of the year if you were NOT sick, you get paid for sick days!

It is a thoroughly corrupt system.

So how do we fix it???

Well, I'm an unapologetic fiscal conservative, they can try to haul me off to wherever central party headquarters decides to put the U.S. version of a Siberian gulag if they think that their agenda is best served by it... I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees.

First you have to get some real info, not watered down, or slanted to agenda of those who do not care if you know fact from opinion.

There are some good radio people, who share your concerns, and have many good guests. You can locate their websites for online listening, or if they are broadcasted in your area. Some of my favorites are: Jerry Doyle, Mark Levin, sometimes, Michael Savage, John & Ken on LA, CA KFI.

Also, Wikipedia is helpful. And there are tax payer groups, that keep tabs on the waste, who voted for it, etc, that will help you keep track of your representatives. Here's a site for National Taxpayers Union: www.ntu.org/main/

And a site for the senate: www.senate.gov/

Also, more people are getting involved, with political organizations to find solutions.

How about a march on the Washington Mall by all we good people. If the queers, unemployed jive-time boogybutt blacks, Wall Street bankers and other buggers who get us in messes can do it, the decent people who actually pay taxes for these scum and losers should get recognized.

Or all of us NOT pay federal income tax until we get some recognition.

Rasmussen’s poll round up for the week:

----------

Even its strongest promoters, Obama included, admit the plan may not work as intended to help America’s troubled economy.

39% of Americans now express confidence in the banking industry. That is a 29 point drop from September.

What emerged from Obama and congress is not what voters have been asking for.

56% of Americans oppose giving bankers any additional government money and guarantees back by the government.

62% of US Voters told us they wanted it to include more tax cuts and less government spending.

48% of voters believe that increased government spending is bad for the economy.

57% say tax cuts are generally good for the economy.

44% of voters were in favor of it, while 40% opposed it, despite Obama campaign style events supporting it.

60% say the stimulus plan emerging from Congress is what Democrats want anyway rather than a bipartisan product.

58% of voters believe that most members of Congress will not understand what is in the plan before they vote on it.

67% of voters have more confidence in their own judgment about economic matters than congress.

49% trust their own judgment more than Obama’s, even though he fares better than congress.

Democrats and Republicans have pulled nearly even 40 to 39% on who is trusted more on the economy. Democrats are slightly favored, but have steadily lost ground since November.

75% say that the federal government should not nationalize US banks.

59% of voters ACROSS ALL party lines believe that when members of Congress meet with regulators, they do to help their friends and hurt their political opponents.

60% of Americans say most politicians will break the rules to help people who gave them large campaign contributions.

----------

February 12

52% of Americans it is VERY likely that a large amount of taxpayer money in the Bank bail out will be wasted.

27% say it is SOMEWHAT likely.

79% total think that the bail out will in some form WASTE money.

----------

On February 11th:

26% say we are on the right track, that is DOWN from 29% from last weeks high.

66% now say we are on the WRONG track. That is UP from 62% the previous week.

----------

Question from a February 11th poll:

Suppose the economic recovery plan changed so that it included only new government spending and there were no tax cuts? Would you favor or oppose an economic recovery plan that included only new government spending?

14% Favor
72% Oppose
14% Not sure

----------

72 PERCENT OPPOSE!

Obviously this isn’t what the American people wanted.

Welcome to the twisted world of democrats.
