THIS IS HOW OBAMA IS GOING TO CLAIM HE HAS CREATED JOBS AND STIMULATED THE ECONOMY!!!

Ever wonder how in the world that this administration is going to claim that is stimulated the economy and created jobs?

I’ve figured it out.

I am the Federal Sales Director for my company, and I have a good pulse on what is going on in the government markets. One of the first things that became clear a few months ago, after the stimulus was passed was that every government agency began to start gearing up with projects that “needed” to get done because of the stimulus money that was going to be sent their way. Now remember, if a government agency doesn’t spend the money that it is given, it loses that money for good.

The projects that were alluded to in requests for comment (RFC) at places like Fedbiz.gov were staggering. Billions upon billions of dollars worth of projects, all to pre-existing agencies and/or projects. And this struck me as odd because this “stimulus” money was supposed to be put back into the economy. Putting “stimulus” money into federal projects that are not “shovel ready” and most likely to be serviced be pre-existing workers and contracts made no sense.

Until now…
I caught this little gem today in FedSmith.com:
The Federal Hiring Process: Can It Meet Today’s Government Requirements?
August 21, 2009
URL: http://www.fedsmith.com/article/2094/federal-hiring-process-can-meet-todays-government.html

Here is the telling statement:
“From the stimulus plan to the debate on health care in American, the federal government is involved. Big government is not only big, it is getting bigger.
The estimates of the number of new federal employees to be hired ranges to as high as 600,000. John Berry, the Director of OPM, wants to revamp the federal hiring process to make it more efficient. Whether this effort will be successful or how long it will take to make it successful is open to question.”

You can go and read the article for yourself, as it mostly pertains to the notion of increasing “efficiency” in the government hiring process… Which is a joke in and of itself… I digress…

The point is that the federal government is anticipating the hiring of 600,000 employees!!!!!

That very notion in and of itself would give this administration the ability to say that it has stimulated the economy by the creation of new jobs, and I am sure that they will leave out the reality that those jobs were government jobs. While government jobs are not a bad thing per say, when they are “created” after the government has taken the steps to slow the economy; it becomes a feat of political gamesmanship and dishonesty.

It is also yet another government power grab because now, there will be 600,000 people (and their families) who are now beholden to the federal government for their very livelihood. New government worker drones will be created.

Stop and think about the gravity of this.
Stimulus money appropriated for the purpose of “stimulating” the economy, but in reality will be dumped into federal programs.

The government claims its plans will create new jobs and prosperity, but it does not admit that it is going to create a new class of “worker”; that of the government worker. Moves that will not exactly stimulate a free economy.

Sadly, I do not think that many people out there will take the time to draw the correlations that now exist in the actions of this government. If you have ever sat back and wondered “what are they thinking”, or wondering how in the world anyone in the government can think that this will work; now we know. They never intended for their plans to work in the free market. Their plans are to bring the free market down, and replace it with their own collectivist economy.

Take the time to understand this, and educate those not likely to draw the correlations for themselves.

Rules for the Non-Military


Dear Civilians, 'We know that the current state of affairs in our great nation has many civilians up in arms and excited to join the join the military.
For those of you who can't join, you can still lend a hand. Here are a few of the areas where we would like your

assistance:*



1. The next time you see any adults talking (or wearing a hat) during the playing of the National Anthem - kick their ass.
2. When you witness, firsthand, someone burning the American Flag in protest - kick their ass.
3. Regardless of the rank they held while they served, pay the highest amount of respect to all veterans. If you see anyone doing otherwise, quietly pull them aside and explain how these veterans fought for the very freedom they bask in every second. Enlighten them on the many sacrifices these veterans made to make this Nation great.

Then hold them down while a disabled veteran kicks their ass.
4.. (GUYS) If you were never in the military, DO NOT pretend that you were. Wearing battle dress uniforms (BDUs) or Jungle Fatigues, telling others that you used to be 'Special Forces, Collecting GI Joe memorabilia, might have been okay when you were seven years old Now, it will only make you look stupid and get your ass kicked.



5. Next time you come across an *Air Force* member, do not ask them, 'Do you fly a jet?' Not everyone in the Air Force is a pilot. Such ignorance deserves an ass-kicking (children are exempt).
6.If you witness someone calling the *US Coast Guard* 'non-military', Inform them of their mistake - and kick their ass.
7. Next time Old Glory (the US flag) prances by during a parade, get on your damn feet and pay homage to her by placing your hand over your heart. Quietly thank the military member or veteran lucky enough to be carrying her - of course, failure to do either of those could earn you a severe ass-kicking.
8. Don't try to discuss politics with a military member or a veteran We are Americans, and we all bleed the same, regardless of our party affiliation. Our Chain of Command is to include our Commander-In-Chief(CinC). The President (for those who didn't know) is our CinC Regardless of political party. We have no inside track on what happens inside those big important buildings where all those representatives meet All we know is that when those civilian representatives screw up the situation, they call upon the military to go straighten it out. If you keep

asking us the same stupid questions repeatedly, you will get your ass kicked.
9. 'Your mama wears combat boots' never made sense to me - stop saying It! If she did, she would most likely be a vet and therefore could kick your ass!
10. Bin Laden and the Taliban are not Communists, so stop saying Let's go kill those Commies!' And stop asking us where he is! Crystal balls are not standard issue in the military. That reminds me- if you see anyone calling those damn psychic phone numbers, let me know, so I can go kick their ass!
11. 'Flyboy' (*Air Force*), 'Jarhead' (*Marines),* 'Grunt'(*Army*), 'Squid' (*Navy*), 'Puddle Jumpers' (*Coast Guard*),etc., are terms of endearment we use describing each other. Unless you are a service member or vet, you have not earned the right to use them. Using them could get your ass kicked.
12. Last, but not least, whether or not you become a member of the military, support our troops and their families. Every Thanksgiving and religious holiday that you enjoy with family and friends, please remember that there are literally thousands of soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen far from home wishing they could be with their families.. Thank God for our military and the sacrifices they make every day. Without them, our country would get it's ass kicked..'
It's the Veteran, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press. 



It's the Veteran, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech. 



It's the Veteran, not the community organizer, who gives us the freedom to demonstrate.



It's the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the  protester to burn the flag.
AND ONE MORE::
If you ever see anyone either standing for or singing the national anthem in Any Language but English - KICK THEIR ASS.


A letter from your boss under an Obama administration.

You can perhaps consider that you just might see a letter like the following under the Obama administration. Why? Simply because so many people were unable, or unwilling to stop and consider the implications and consequences of Obama’s economic policy’s.

Millions of our citizens thought that “spreading the wealth around” was, and is a viable and realistic economic policy; but the reality is that it is not, nor has it ever been, anywhere. Obama will drive up the cost of doing business in just about every way possible, and it is going to force business owners (such as yours truly) to cut costs anyway possible; and that means that people are going to lose their jobs.

I’m going to save the following letter in my personal draft files for use at a later time because I fear that there will come a time under the Obama administration that I will have to use it. And should I know that one of my employees was an Obama supporter, they will be the first to go. I will give them a chance to truly understand the consequences of what they supported.

Subject: Letter to employees
To All My Valued Employees:

There have been some rumblings around the office about the future of this company, and more specifically, your job. As you know, the economy has changed for the worse and presents many challenges. However, the good news is this: The economy doesn’t pose a threat to your job. What does threaten your job however, is the changing political landscape in this country.

Of course, as your employer, I am forbidden to tell you whom to vote for – it is against the law to discriminate based on political affiliation, race, creed, religion, etc. Please vote who you think will serve your interests the best.

However, let me tell you some little tidbits of fact which might help you decide what is in your best interests. First, while it is easy to spew rhetoric that casts employers against employees, you have to understand that for every business owner there is a back story. This back story is often neglected and overshadowed by what you see and hear. Sure, you see me park my Mercedes outside. You’ve seen my big home at last year’s Christmas party. I’m sure; all these flashy icons of luxury conjure up some idealized thoughts about my life. However, what you don’t see is the back story.

I started this company 12 years ago. At that time, I lived in a 300 square foot studio apartment for 3 years. My entire living apartment was converted into an office so I could put forth 100% effort into building a company, which by the way, would eventually employ you.

My diet consisted of Ramen Pride noodles because every dollar I spent went back into this company. I drove a rusty Toyota Corolla with a defective transmission. I didn’t have time to date. Often times, I stayed home on weekends, while my friends went out drinking and partying. In fact, I was married to my business — hard work, discipline, and sacrifice. Meanwhile, my friends got jobs. They worked 40 hours a week and made a modest $50K a year and spent every dime they earned. They drove flashy cars and lived in expensive homes and wore fancy designer clothes. Instead of hitting the Nordstrom’s for the latest hot fashion item, I was trolling through the Goodwill store extracting any clothing item that didn’t look like it was birthed in the 70’s. My friends refinanced their mortgages and lived a life of luxury. I, however, did not. I put my time, my money, and my life into a business with a vision that eventually, some day, I too, will be able to afford these luxuries my friends supposedly had.

So, while you physically arrive at the office at 9am, mentally check in at about noon, and then leave at 5pm, I don’t. There is no “off” button for me. When you leave the office, you are done and you have a weekend all to yourself. I unfortunately do not have the freedom. I eat, shit, and breathe this company every minute of the day. There is no rest. There is no weekend. There is no happy hour. Every day this business is attached to my hip like a 1 year old special-needs child. You, of course, only see the fruits of that garden — the nice house, the Mercedes, the vacations… you never realize the back story and the sacrifices I’ve made.

Now, the economy is falling apart and I, the guy that made all the right decisions and saved his money, have to bail-out all the people who didn’t. The people that overspent their paychecks suddenly feel entitled to the same luxuries that I earned and sacrificed a decade of my life for. Yes, business ownership has is benefits but the price I’ve paid is steep and without wounds. Unfortunately, the cost of running this business, and employing you, is starting to eclipse the threshold of marginal benefit and let me tell you why:

I am being taxed to death and the government thinks I don’t pay enough. I have state taxes. Federal taxes. Property taxes. Sales and use taxes. Payroll taxes. Workers compensation taxes. Unemployment taxes. Taxes on taxes. I have to hire a tax man to manage all these taxes and then guess what? I have to pay taxes for employing him. Government mandates and regulations and all the accounting that goes with it, now occupy most of my time. On Oct 15th, I wrote a check to the US Treasury for $288,000 for quarterly taxes. You know what my “stimulus” check was? Zero. Nada. Zilch.

The question I have is this: Who is stimulating the economy? Me, the guy who has provided 14 people good paying jobs and serves over 2,200,000 people per year with a flourishing business? Or, the single mother sitting at home pregnant with her fourth child waiting for her next welfare check? Obviously, government feels the latter is the economic stimulus of this country. The fact is, if I deducted (Read: Stole) 50% of your paycheck you’d quit and you wouldn’t work here. I mean, why should you? That’s nuts. Who wants to get rewarded only 50% of their hard work? Well, I agree which is why your job is in jeopardy.

Here is what many of you don’t understand … to stimulate the economy you need to stimulate what runs the economy. Had suddenly government mandated to me that I didn’t need to pay taxes, guess what? Instead of depositing that $288,000 into the Washington black-hole, I would have spent it, hired more employees, and generated substantial economic growth. My employees would have enjoyed the wealth of that tax cut in the form of promotions and better salaries. But you can forget it now.

When you have a comatose man on the verge of death, you don’t defibrillate and shock his thumb thinking that will bring him back to life, do you? Or, do you defibrillate his heart? Business is at the heart of America and always has been. To restart it, you must stimulate it, not kill it. Suddenly, the power brokers in Washington believe the mud of America are the essential drivers of the American economic engine. Nothing could be further from the truth and this is the type of change you can keep.

So where am I going with all this? It’s quite simple. If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, my reaction will be swift and simple. I fire you. I fire your co-workers. You can then plead with the government to pay for your mortgage, your SUV, and your child’s future. Frankly, it isn’t my problem anymore. Then, I will close this company down, move to another country, and retire. You see, I’m done. I’m done with a country that penalizes the productive and gives to the unproductive. My motivation to work and to provide jobs
will be destroyed, and with it, will be my citizenship.

While tax cuts to 95% of America sounds great on paper, don’t forget the back story: If there is no job, there is no income to tax. A tax cut on zero dollars is zero So, when you make your decision to vote, ask yourself, who understands the economics of business ownership and who doesn’t? Whose policies will endanger your job? Answer those questions and you should know who might be the one capable of saving your job. While the media wants to tell you “It’s the economy stupid” I’m telling you it isn’t. If you lose your job, it won’t be at the hands of the economy; it will be at the hands of a political hurricane that swept through this country, steamrolled the constitution, and will have changed its landscape forever.

If that happens, you can find me in the South Caribbean sitting on a beach, retired, and with no employees to worry about.


Signed,
Your Boss

Voter Registration Fraud: Dems at the tip of the spear…

It is astonishing that the mainstream media is not all over this voter registration fraud!! Especially considering that they are the ones that pushed the stolen election drivel from our last elections. You would think that they would be all over this story, but as it is, only local media is reporting on the MASSIVE voter registration fraud that is going on. And criminal democrats on at the tip of the spear on this one!!!

The Secretary of State in Ohio actively blocked the investigation of over 200,000 mismatched voter registrations… Yes… 200,000…

Democratic officials are at the tip of the spear in regard to voter fraud…

You’ll note that most sources are local papers and news stations or blogs, few are national media or the leading dailies.  That is, while local media and blogs are covering this, the national media is downplaying it or downright ignoring it.

Obama, “Spread the wealth around” equals socialist income redistribution.

Power Line – Spread your own wealth around

When Barack Obama responded to the Ohio plumber who didn’t want his taxes raised that Obama wanted to “spread the wealth around,” I wanted to tell him to spread his own wealth around. It was in any event a rare moment of candor on the part of Senator Obama.

Obama all but told the plumber that his wealth should be seized in the name of equity. The encounter played out one of the old themes of democratic politics: the appeal to the many to take from the few. It’s traditionally an easy sell in democratic regimes.

Despite Obama’s implication to the contrary, however, It doesn’t represent much in the way of change. According to the most recent (2006) data released by the IRS, the top 1 percent of filers paid nearly 40 percent of all income taxes; the top 5 percent paid 60 percent of all income taxes. The bottom 50 percent paid virtually no income taxes (3 percent of all income taxes paid).

The personal income tax, the federal government’s main source of revenue, is collected overwhelmingly from a relative handful of Americans. The large majority of all Americans pay little or no income tax.
