Democrats Spoil Mayor Dickinson's Party

The Democratic party at all levels of government loves to spend money. They love to force unnecessary costs on all of us. I really have to laugh at Wallingford Democratic Town Chairmen Vincent Avallone's complaint of a dinner in which Wallingford Mayor Bill Dickinson will be honored for the many years of positive service to the town. The Mayor will not receive any funds from the dinner nor are any funds being raised for any political purpose. Any money which is above and beyond the expenses of the dinner will be donated to several different Wallingford civic organizations.
Thus according to the Democrats it is against state election law since even though no money has been raised for any candidate, Mr. Avallone feels that this is a testimonial for the Mayor and can't be done. Thus he files the complaint. Now we have the paradox of this argument. Here is the Democratic party in Wallingford which can not even field a candidate for Mayor in the last election, doing whatever it can to find fault with the Republicans in town and their majorities in the Mayor's office, Town Council and Board of Education. We can also assume that the most critical issue in Wallingford today is if this simple dinner can be allowed to go on or not, or must it cost the Republicans a large fine to the state thanks to the legalese of Mr. Avallone. And the other big loser will be the Wallingford civic organizations who would have benefited from receiving money from the dinner. Thus the Democrats have helped to promote another lose-lose situation. They can not field a candidate to run against Dickinson, they condemn his dinner as being against state law and they are against civic organizations in our town receiving donations. If you are a registered Democrat in Wallingford, I would truly question why your leadership must resort to this foolishness. Maybe your party could be spending the time to actually field real candidates for local office. Oh I forgot, this is really the most crucial issue in Wallingford today. It is obvious why the Wallingford Democrats are in the minority in 2010 and will be for a long period of time in the future.

Why Are Economic Plans Difficult To Create?

Why are economic plans difficult to create? In my economic opinion, our political system. Our political system seems to be made up with individuals who either have inherited old money and never have worked a day in their lives, have been in public service and never worked a productive day in their lives or have been able to manipulate the political system to their advantage and also have never worked a productive day in their lives. Therefore, our political system negates productivity as deals must be constantly made to enact legislation all of which cost taxpayers (in theory those who produce) more and more of their real income. Taxpayers must be productive in order to earn income. They are allowed to keep only a small portion of their income in order to contribute to this political and economic debacle that we see in Washington and Hartford. What gives both Congress and our Democratic super majority in Hartford the right to overtax you? Are they held accountable through audits and reviews of programs? I see little if any of this. Thus there can not be an economic plan nor any forward economic thinking other than raise taxes on those who are the most productive in our economy in order to give to those who are the most politically connected in both Washington and Hartford. Thus we have a mess in our economy which is directly related to the poor and inept political system which governs it. Our 2010 election should begin the change back to a free economic system and gone will these non productive and disgraceful politicians who have debased our economy.

Let The Tidal Wave Begin

Let the tidal wave begin, may it spread to Connecticutax. Is Dick Blumenthal nervous? Of course he is. Is he a strong candidate? In his mind he is. The thought of Ned Lamont as Governor truly sickens me also. The tidal wave against socialism, liberalism and excessive taxation has begun only a few miles away from our poorly governed and overtaxed state. It is spreading to our state.
The Connecticutax Democrats have to be scared. The media will try to help them spin this debacle as best as they can to try to cover up the years of poor government that the Democrats have given us both on a federal and state level.
However, Dodd was dumped, Blumenthal will lose, Lamont will lose and Donovan will go to minority status. Connecticut voters are fed up and see 2010 as a time of change in this new decade. The lies of years past by the Democrats are being remembered by voters and taxpayers. They have had enough. The tidal wave has begun and the Democrats here in Connecticut can no longer paddle their deceptions any more.

Where Is The Economic Plan?

I am curious where is the economic plan from either Washington or Hartford? I do not see one nor is unemployment going down. How can we be coming out of the recession when we have a posted 10% unemployment rate and a real rate of 18%+ (those who are still unemployed and are no longer being counted)? What is the economic reasoning behind that? Where are all the supposed jobs that were created by the ill gotten stimulus package?
Here in Hartford, our state's finances are a debacle. We are fast approaching a $1 billion deficit with no relief in sight. We have a legislature which could care less about any of the economic issues facing Connecticut. Taxpayers hear the same song of higher taxes will solve all of our problems. And we also see the great migration continue out of the state for a better and lower taxed life elsewhere.
Washington and Hartford have no economic plan. They have the same stale rhetoric which taxpayers at all levels no longer buy into. The Tea Party movement will continue to grow and will eventually help replace our stale and economically illiterate elected officials. 2010 is here now, where is the economic plan? It is not in Washington or in Hartford.

Bad Health Is On The Horizon

Bad health is in store for most Americans with the socialized health care plan that the Democrats in Congress will be voting on before they lose their super majority. Taxpayers will now be burdened with a top secret, highly taxed, partisan, illogical and unhealthy health care plan. It is a plan that full of earmarks, it is secret, negotiations and debate closed off to Republicans and the public. It is a plan that shows how ineffective, illogical and non cooperative to those whom they supposedly represent Congress has become. And they will exempt themselves from this debacle of a bill. All in the name of a liberal, socialistic agenda that is creating ruin for our economy.
We have really poor government in 2010. We have an inexperienced President who disregards those who supposedly elected him in his false claim of change. All that has changed is that we have lost a great deal of our freedoms in the past year. We have a Congress who totally disregards logic and debate. It is socialism at its best. And the voting public has begun its great awakening. Bad health is on the horizon with a mangled health care bill which defies any type of well being. The horizon will change soon as November approaches.

The Again Coming Economic Storm

The economic storm is brewing again. It will be harsh. It will long. It continues to create havoc in our economy. I do not see much positive economic news on the horizon. We have a spend happy Congress which has become totally separated from the people they represent. What is the actual costs of the socialized health care plan they wish to ram down our throats? How much money has and will TARP lose for taxpayers? What is the economic point of cap and trade? What is the plan to pay down the national debt? How is this debt going to be financed in the future? At what cost? What is the plan to clear the toxic debt out of the financial markets? Why are economic financial whistle blowers silenced? What are the economic implications for the continuing wars in the Middle East? What are the unfunded liabilities of the federal government and how will they be financed? What are the plans to spur private job growth in the future since the unreported unemployment rate is around 18% and climbing each day? When are taxes going to be cut to stimulate the economy? And the questions continue ad infintum. 2010 is here and it will be time to vote these fools out of office at all levels of government.

Dodd Dumped, Now Dump Blumenthal

Dodd got dumped. What position was he promised in the last two years of the Obama Administration for giving up his seat? And why should Dick Blumenthal be our Senator? What has he really done to become a Senator? Let us now Dump Dick. His constant lawsuits which have cost our state millions of dollars have helped to develop a negative business atmosphere. If you were a business why would you want to locate in a highly taxed and litigious state for? And if one closely looks at his record especially the New England Pellet case, in which his office did not have the slightest clue as to what was the rule of law, his brand of media induced legalese will not play well with the voting public. I know that Connecticut's liberal media has already self appointed him the new Senator but I will predict that this election will become a blood bath over the year. Dick Blumenthal is an opportunist Attorney General who has done little to actually protect consumers in our state, improve our quality of life or allow businesses to operate without fear of reprisal. In my opinion, the Democrats are still going to lose this seat in November. Connecticut voters have had enough.

Back to the Economy. What Unemployment?

What is that? The economy, stupid. Remember that? What Unemployment? The free market economic system has been hijacked by corrupt politicians and feel good liberalism. I continue to be amazed by the political interference in our economy and by the supposed economic stimulation that government apparently provides it. For example I find it comical that Democratic pollster Mark Penn received an economic stimulus contract worth almost $6 million to work on a public-relations campaign to promote the national transition from analog to digital television. Why you may ask? Was this critical to our economy? He made the taxpayers pay him $6 million for 39 days work and has the nerve to state that it saved three jobs. Yes, three jobs. Thus your tax money paid $2 million dollars to save each one of those jobs. I wonder how many people in Connecticut who are unemployed know that? I think $6 million of taxpayers monies could have been much better spent. Where is the outcry by taxpayers or the media? How many actually know of this scam? And the list goes on and on.
Our economy will only recover when we allow the free market system to work again without governmental and political interference. We have an economically illiterate administration working hand in hand with an economically illiterate Democratic Congress destroying our economy on a daily basis so as to promote their inept ego, power and glorification of failed liberal policies.
The days are marching on and November 2010 will be here. A new economic dawn will occur for our economy with a new Congress then. 2012 will follow as quick with a new President. I can only hope those who are unemployed can last that long. Also if you unemployed why not ask Mark Penn for a job-why not make him share his liberal wealth?

We Are Now Under International Law, Why?

We are under international law. Why?
Here it is:
By a stroke of his amazing pen, President Obama has now overturned a law protecting our citizens, what deal was made with who?
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 1 of the International Organizations Immunities Act (22 U.S.C. 288), and in order to extend the appropriate privileges, exemptions, and immunities to the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), it is hereby ordered that Executive Order 12425 of June 16, 1983, as amended, is further amended by deleting from the first sentence the words "except those provided by Section 2(c), Section 3, Section 4, Section 5, and Section 6 of that Act" and the semicolon that immediately precedes them.
President Reagan's directive of 1983 placing Interpol, which is an international law enforcement agency, under our Fourth Amendment Search and Seizure laws and rules has just been overturned. The reason President Reagan did it was to protect our country from international law interference and protect United States citizens from these types of searches. It was logical what Reagan did. It makes absolutely no sense what Obama has just done. It also makes no sense that not one mainstream news organization actually reported it. Interpol by this act has greater powers than our Constitution. Why isn't Congress acting to overturn this directive? What is the reason for this directive with no debate from anyone?
We are now in 2010. A new Congress with new members needs to be elected to stop this abuse of power that is going on in Washington.

What's $400 billion dollars?

Hey what's $400 billion dollars? It is the amount of losses of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that you are paying to keep them afloat. And what is wrong with that? We as an economy sure as heck have another $400 billion dollars that we can take out of circulation and help prop up thousands of bad mortgages. Most of these mortgages will never get current. Most of these mortgages should be in bankruptcy now so as to clear the market out of this toxic debt which is still dragging down the housing market. But this administration still feels they are doing a great job and will throw more taxpayers monies out to keep them afloat. And also pay the officials of these two failed mortgages giants $6 million in compensation for the great job they are doing. It is an economic fantasy as to why this money keeps getting spent on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to prop up these bad mortgages. And this waste of taxpayer's monies need to stop immediately. We need the free market system to clear the bad debt out and let the normal supply and demand of housing start to go forward again. It is economic reality that not everyone can afford to own a home. The federal government needs to understand it. I am personally tired of paying for this ridiculous piece of social welfare that has failed our economy.
