Obama's $30M surplus

So our new president has some extra bucks he needs to get rid of. Hmmmmm.

Click below of follow the link to read the AP article.

Let's see if we can think of some things he might could do with his extra money.

I heard Hillary Clinton was in debt. Mr. Obama wants the voters to help her pay it off, even though I'm pretty sure she could afford to pay it off herself. But hey, who wants to do that???? But Mr. Obama has some extra cash. He could help her with her debt. Oh shucks, that's no fun. Let the common plebes take care of it.

The article say's that the Democratic National Committee is carrying about $5 million in debt, with almost $12 million cash on hand. DNC officials say they expect to have the debt paid by the end of the year. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee carries some $19 million in debt and less than $3 million on hand. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is nearly $13 million in debt.

Well now, there's some folks he could help out I suppose...

How about this one? I know some poor American car makers who keep going to Washington in their, no, no, I mean their cars to ask for help. Seems they screwed up their companies something good and now they need some help to fix things. Mr. Obama, being the generous, organizing type of soul that he is could help those guys out.

Oh wait. I know a better one.

Give the money to the common folks of this country who go to work everyday and pay their taxes.

That might help the economy.

On a closing note - if McCain had won the election and he had this much money left over, I'd say the same thing.

Wait and see where the money goes...

Time for a Change

Now that the election is over and John McCain pretty much blew it, I've decided it's time for a few changes. I'm big enough to admit that these things have been in process for a while. The results of the Presidential election simply put the final piece into place for me.

The first change is that I'm done with the Republican party. Kind of a shame. I was raised Republican. My family is of Republican leaning kinds of people, for the most part and we're all pretty much conservative. But the Republican party no longer represents me or my interests - at least not accurately. I first really saw this when the Republicans took control of Washington. There they were in total control of everything and they completely alienated the rest of us. It's like they all went to Washington and stuck their heads into a time warp of stupidity. They did everything wrong, were an embarrasement and eventually got voted out. Look at where the party is today. What a shame. I refuse to associate with a party that acts that way and is that stupid.

So now I'm an independent. That's an interesting place to be in. It's kind of freeing!

I now listen to Neil Boortz too. There are days when he drives me crazy, but he's spot on with the Fair Tax. Good stuff. Once again, it's something that the Republicans ignored to their detriment. Of course, the Dem's are ignoring it too. Too bad for them. Whichever party wakes up first and latches on will own a major foothold in Washington...

While I am no fan of Obama or the left leaning people he seems to be picking, I do respect the man for an incredible campaign. He got it right. He ACTED presidential which is exactly what he needed to do. I'm hoping he is an incredible president. We'll see.

The other problem with the Republican party is their inability to relate to people and to explain the advantages of "Rugged Individualism." I love individualism. I don't want to suck off the government's tit. I don't want the government to own me or to rescue me. But rugged individualism is also very hard. And most people don't understand it. And further, those who do understand it - Republicans mind you, are absolutely horrible at incorporating compassion into their message. The Democrats are all over this one and I applaud them for that.

One other thing. I listened to most of A Prarie Home Companion the other day.

It wasn't too bad.

Hey Joe, do you think YOU can do the job?

The Democratic campaign continues to weaken...

Oh Be Careful Little Tongue What You Say!

Uh-oh, Mr. Obama is starting to come undone. You may be seeing the first cracks in a campaign that is going to crumble into ashes.
