Just hand-carted in my 2009 1040 BOOK from the mailbox. I should inspect the mailbox for stress damage. At this rate, a few more years and this thing should be bigger than a phone book.
I hope the average
sucker taxpayer notices the switch to perfect binding and the increased size. I hope as they bring this atrocity into their home they think about our renegade out of control government. I hope as they spend hour after hour, working on their taxes, they get angrier and angrier at the criminals running congress.
And I pray that they will resolve to become politically active in this crucial year. As for doing so respectfully, I don’t think most of our representatives pay any attention to respectful letters and emails. I don’t think they respect respect. They just think we’re suckers. So take action. Do something – write, call, visit and demonstrate. I made three trips to Washington last year and I expect to make more this year.
A trip to your senator or representative’s home office when they are in town, is much better than a letter. Try to make an appointment to see them in person. Make them see your intensity. Make them look you in your eyes and lie to you in person rather than by a return form letter.
Demonstrate that you’re watching what they do and how they do it. And make sure they understand that you are ready to take action and encourage others to take action to kick their asses out of office if they continue to ignore us. Make 2010 a pivotal year for America.

Why are they picking on this guy?
I think its wonderful what Alan Grayson is doing to prove that the mentally challenged can serve in Congress.

The ever arrogant Chuck Schumer provides us another dramatic example of why these pompous jerks should be term limited. After being repeatedly told by a flight attendant to conclude his conversation and turn off his phone, and that “everyone on the flight was waiting for him to turn off his phone,” Schumer is reported to have called the flight attendant “a bitch.”
Even after he stopped his phone call, the phone rang again, and Schumer was said to have stated, “It’s Harry Reid calling, I guess health care will have to wait until we land.” Yeah, right bitch, America’s health care depends your wisdom. It shouldn’t be surprising that Schumer would think nothing of abusing and potentially endangering his fellow passengers. After all the bill he’s working on will screw over the entire country.
Everyone on the plane should have picked the bastard up and thrown him out the door. Unfortunately, the voters in New York are unlikely to show him the electoral door.

That’s what the headlines should read. Pelosi and the other bastards running the most irresponsible congress in modern history may cause there to be a real war before they are done.
This legislation must be resisted, disrupted and overturned. As the hidden details of this monstrosity are dragged into the light of day I believe that there will be enough public backlash to turn sufficient seats to overturn this 15 months from now.
These people are clueless as to the fury that they are unleashing.

Dick Morris has a new column on health care that asks some great questions. He also calls out the AARP for posturing as advocates for the elderly, while simultaneously selling them out. And he explains their motives.
“Today, 800,000 doctors struggle to treat adequately the 250 million Americans who have insurance. Obama will add 50 million more to their caseload with no expansion in the number of doctors or nurses. Indeed, his plan will likely reduce their number by lowering reimbursement rates and imposing bureaucrats above them who will force medical decisions down their throats.
And it is the elderly who rationing will most effect. Who should get a knee replacement a 40 year old or a 70 year old? Who should get a new hip, a young person or an old person? Who should have priority in the operating room a seventy year old diabetic who needs bypass surgery or a younger person?”
The exclamation point on the pure evil of this is found in the comments by readers. Comment 5:
|“Yes, this is the critical issue we all must face as a society! What are our priorities? . . .How much do we spend to keep our elderly hanging on, just because it can technically/medically be done, or when do we let nature take its course? . . . How many years do you want to spend sitting in front of the TV or lying in a bed just because you can be kept alive?”
That is not an issue we must face as a society. You have no goddamn right to make those decisions for another human being. That is the individual’s decision. Read the full comment for a dramatic demonstration of ethical perversity.
These people think they are entitled to repeal freedom. They see no problem in making life and death decisions for other people. Statists see no problem in stealing livelihoods and the products of an individuals life. So why should they hesitate in stealing life itself?

Since the so-called stimulus is a total waste of 787 billion anyway, the less that is spent of it, the better. Maybe Congress can even miss their real target of stimulating votes for their 2010 re-election campaigns.
Republican members of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committtee are pointing out that the stimulus bill was largely sold as an infrastructure and job creation bill. But the amount of the dollars targeted to infrastructure was only between 7 and 8 percent of the total bill. And as yet only one percent of that amount has gone out.
Even though it takes many years for highway projects to go through the planning process, at any one time there are many projects in the pipeline simply waiting for funding. But out of the 48 billion allocated to the Transportation Department, only 523 million has been disbursed.
It is inevitable that a few years from now, a study will show that nearly all of the “stimulus” was worthless. It will have been a total waste that will take a generation to pay back. If by some miracle, control of congress goes to adults, this bill should be reversed and used to lower the deficit. Any sign of fiscal responsibility will do more to restore confidence and help the economy than the combined pet projects of all the clowns in Congress.

Screw Greenpeace. This entire climate change bullshit is just an avenue for anti-American and anti-capitalist radicals to force political action for their extreme ideology. The fact that they would choose such an iconic American monument upon which to unfurl their propaganda shows how truly anti-American they are.
They damn well better end up being charged with more than tresspassing. Once the damage, if any, is ascertained, they should be hit with every possible charge to the fullest extent of the law. These people are dangerous extremists out to destroy lives and end the freedom entrusted to successive generations by the leaders honored on Mt. Rushmore.

I am disappointed with Palin’s decision to resign. I’m sure a lot of Alaskans put their faith, hard work and money on the line to get her elected. I’m sure few people who made a donation to SarahPac ever expected this turn of events. I believe she had an obligation to finish her term. Will I ever be able to forgive her choice? You betcha.
If she has some grand plan, we should know within a few months. My guess is that she isn’t that complicated. Many reports have cited her disgust at the wasteful expense both for herself and the State of Alaska, in defending against the frivolous ethics complaints brought by her hate-filled opposition. She has now dispensed with that.
As for the vile treatment of her family by everyone from bloggers to past their prime late night hosts, stay tuned. Palin can now respond as mama bear, not hamstrung by the governor’s seal behind her. Pretty simple.
Is there much to gain politically from completing the last year and a half of the term. Not really, considering the circumstances, and if you have no intention of running for re-election, why not give your chosen successor a leg up on the competition. She said she was passing the ball, and that is what she has done.
The meritless complaints against her are reported to have personally cost her as much as a half million dollars. She can now make that back with a handful of speeches. She’ll very quickly be a multi-millionaire while her detractors and complainants will still be worthless trolls. Palin can now make so much money her family will never need moose stew again.
And whatever support she loses by this move, she can recapture many times over by being free to campaign for candidates and issues wherever and whenever she likes. She may love Alaska, but I sense a new found appreciation for the lower 48. So is there some complicated grand plan? It looks more to me like some straight forward common sense.
Do not misunderestimate Sarah. How many governors can have their positives drop thirty points and still be in the SIXTIES? She was the top draw during the McCain campaign, and that is not about to change. The demand for Sarah appearances will continue to far outstrip the available supply of Palin hours.
Her surprise speech several days ago invoked MacArthur and spoke of advancing in a new direction. However I don’t think the end target has changed.

Jamie Dupree of WSB Radio in Atlanta spoke with Neal Boortz about an apparent new entitlement program buried in the little read cap and trade bill. Apparently the bill includes an “Energy Refund Program” which reveals that the Dems expect the bill to raise energy costs far more than they admit.
The new monthly payout would go to those whose income is no more than 150% of the poverty line. The provision appears on page 1193 of the bill which was raced through unread by nearly all of the so-called representatives voting on it. The current modus operandi of Polosi’s most irresponsible congress in history is to make sure the public has no opportunity to comment on proposed legislation.
Dupree also writes in his blog about the bill making provision for loss of funds to the Medicare and Social Security funds because of the job-killing nature of the bill. Dupree, unlike the lapdog official state media, is going through the bill line by line and reporting what he finds. His full blog is on the WSB site here.

Wal-Mart – new corporate enemy of freedom. I’ve already sent them my reaction. I had always liked shopping Wal-Mart but things change. Ironic, in their support of a health-care mandate, they have teamed with the people who would most like to see them destroyed. Oh well, onward.
According to The Washington Post the agency proposed by dear leader would “oversee nearly all facets of consumer lending.” Disguised as a consumer protection bill, it could better be described as a scheme to spread the bad lending practices of Fannie and Freddie to all healthy banks.
Lead congress criminal Barney Frank plans to rush the bill through this month. Frank, as responsible as anyone for precipitating the mortgage crisis, will be able to force bad lending practices upon conservative local banks. The Post quotes Edward Yingling, chief executive of the American Bankers Association as saying, “I think when people read this, they will be shocked about the incredibly broad delegation of power . . It basically can do almost anything it wants. . .”
Another bank official is reported to have said this new agency “could compel lenders to offer loans to poor consumers who have shaky credit histories even if this could jeopardize the firms’ health.” Isn’t that how Frank and friends started the whole mortgage crisis? Of course the bill is supported by community groups that seek more lending to people who cannot afford the loans.

Mary Bono Mack of California., Mike Castle of Delaware, Mark Steven Kirk of Illinois, Leonard Lance of New Jersey, Frank LoBiondo of New Jersey, John McHugh of New York, Dave Reichert of Washington, and Chris Smith of New Jersey. These are the people who are most responsible for cap and trade passing in the House.
Eight worthless Republicans who betrayed their party, betrayed their country, betrayed any claim to economic sanity. Hell, they have betrayed any claim to any sanity having voted for this lunacy. This will cost every American family thousands of dollars a year before long if permitted to stand. All for nothing. Sham science. Bad economics. Anti-business. Anti-jobs. Anti-economic recovery. Anti-energy. Anti-freedom. Anti-American.
This has to be stopped in the Senate. And I don’t care what party these lunatics who voted for this bill belong to. If they are worthless on a vote this crucial, they are worthless period.
And three of the bastards are from my state of New Jersey. All of them are within very reasonable driving distance for campaign events in the next election cycle. And thanks to them, the gas to get there will cost more.

” . . . government-run health insurance would crater the private insurance market, forcing most Americans onto the government plan. The Lewin Group estimates 70% of people with private insurance — 120 million Americans — will quickly lose what they now get from private companies and be forced onto the government-run rolls as businesses decide it is more cost-effective for them to drop coverage.”
Karl Rove in the WSJ offers five arguments against the public option government health insurance plan which our nation’s petty tyrants intend to use to not so slow boil America into total government health-care.
And he warns that if the enemy is successful, “we won’t be able to undo the damage.”

One of the commenters in an article announcing that Battlestar Galactica’s Katee Sackhoff will join the cast of 24 next season characterized 24 thusly:
right-wing torture porn
I never thought of it that way. But it does give me an even greater appreciation of the show.
And it provides this post with some great search terms.
The events going on in Washington are too horrific to not give voice to my opinions. Sorry, but I’m back.
With Obama racing Chavez for the best imitation of a young Fidel, its time for anyone who wants to preserve a free America to take a stand. Its time to write, make phone calls to your deadbeat legislators, speak to your neighbors, attend protests and most important -VOTE to replace your deadbeat representatives.
TalkJunkie will soon have a new design and a slightly new direction. Links are being updated and the talk schedules will get their own pages. And the new design will include commenting. So for all one or two of you still using the website, you’ll see a new look over the next few weeks. And you’ll be better able to offer suggestions and radio schedule additions. Said suggestions should include as few profanities as possible.
