Obama's way to kill the economy, and steal yet more money from our pockets

The draft of the transportation proposal, which reportedly has been circulated within the Department of Transportation and the Office of Management and Budget, would create a $300 million office within the Federal Highway Administration to be called the “Surface Transportation Revenue Alternatives Office.”

If anything shows how out of touch this administration is, it is this.  Why would anyone who's trying to find a way to stay within budget, create a 300 million dollar office?

Common sense would say that this is a bad idea and that any one who wants to be re-elected, should run screaming as far away from this, as possible.  But, our favorite teleprompter in chief, who by the way, doesn't have any kind of degree in economics, or even in common sense, would rather move our country even closer to Orwell's Big Brother world.

I will tell you this, I will not allow anyone to put anything on my car that broadcasts my location or travel plans to anyone, period.  This would be a violation of my right to privacy, and another stupid tax would go even further in breaking my bottom line.

Listen up and listen good, Big Brother Obama, We don't want this change you want to bring, and we don't see any hope at all for this country with you in charge.  Maybe you should just write your memiors and go join Carter in retirement.

Texas Railroad Commision changes name and wants secret meetings

In recent news from Austin, The Texas legislators voted to change the name of the Commission to the Texas Oil and Gas Commission.  And in an amendment, they also voted to have secret meetings when it comes to rate increases and other controversial discussions.

In my humble opinion, the name change is needed, but the secrecy is not.  The taxpayers should always be allowed to be present when the Oil and gas commission discusses the raising of tax rates.  This is because it's ultimately the consumer that pays for those increases, and we should always have the ability to sit in on such discussions.

The fact that the commission wants to meet in secrecy, only sounds to me like they want to raise rates and don't want us to know about it, until it's done with.

This is not government by the people, for the people, of the people, it's government by state, for the state, of the state, and it's illegal, as per the Texas constitution.

I am sick and tired of the State and Federal Government thinking that they can disregard the will of the people who voted them into office.  This is a cancer that needs to be cut out.

Osama Bin Laden dead. (Or is he?)

My wife woke me up at 12 am, asking, "Are you awake enough to hear the radio?"  Between my mumbling, she cryptically said, "Because if it's true, Obama just got re-elected."  Needless to say, I groggily came around, wondering if I'd missed time and it was 2012 already.  Instead, I heard that US Forces in Pakistan had just Killed Osama Bin Laden.
My first thought was, "Damned, now he won't get to stand trial or spend time in G'Tmo."  Then I kind of thought about it, and maybe it's for the best.  I know that the families of 9/11 won't be happy that they didn't get to stone him, but justice was served.  Then later, somewhere around 2am, I heard that the World's most wanted man was given a full military funeral at sea, and I was like, "What the hell?  Since when do we honor terrorists so?"  When they mentioned it was in accordance with Muslim law, I couldn't believe it.
Bin Laden had orchestrated the death of 3000 people, sent us into two stupid wars, got our brave soldiers killed, and he gets a full military funeral at sea?

If you are thinking that Obama might get re-elected.  Don't fret, it's a year and 5 months until the next election, and the way Obama is going, most of us will forget that Bin Laden is dead by then, and we'll be backto concentrating on the spiraling debt, the massive entitlements, and other things, and Bin Laden will still be sitting at the bottom of the ocean, being chewed on by sand crabs.

It's sad, but it seems like some people just won't listen, because the easiest way to win this war, and yes it's a war against Islam, is to destroy mecca, Medina, and let the Israeli's blow the hell out of the al-asqa mosque that stands on the site of Solomon's temple.

I find it just a bit odd, but so far, Obama has gotten us into two more wars, one in Libya, and maybe one in Pakistan by invading countries that haven't touched us or attacked us.  So much for the idiot in chief's promise to bring troops home.

By the way, I have a message for the US Forces that killed Bin Laden.  "Way to go, guys, YOU ROCK!!!"

Climate Change: Facts

Unless you live in a place where the temperature stays 72 degrees year around, it rains at 3:30 pm every day, like clockwork, and it's always a nice 60 degrees at night, and the grass is always green, no matter what the season, your climate is always changing.

Take for instance where I live.  Friday it was 85 degrees, the sand was blowing.  No, I don't live in the desert, I live in west Texas and where I work, there is sand.  Saturday it was 65 degrees and there were hints of rain.  Right now, it's 44 degrees outside and the high is estimated to be 61 degrees and the low might be 40 degrees.  And to top it off, it's supposed to be May outside, though it feels more like February.

I hate to tell you people, but we live in a closed, yet dynamic system, and the climate is always changing.  Get used to it.  The important thing is not to let the Global Destruction fanatics scare you.  Honestly, climate is gonna change, it's just a part of life.  Embrace it, let it invigorate you, and simply enjoy it.  If it's not to your liking, hang around because it will change, it's just a fact of life.
