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 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
The Federal Hiring Process: Can It Meet Today’s Government Requirements?
August 21, 2009

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.


Steve Driehause votes to steal $4000 from every American Family

Steve Driehaus votes to steal $4,000 from your family.  Thanks, Steve!

This is no joke.

Think its a joke? Don’t.

This is not intended to be a judgment about the presidential race either way. It is however an intent of hope, that will cause some people to stop and take notice, and make a judgment about the associations that Obama has made.

Obama is truly an example of a criminal politician.
– He has masked his intentions totally. He say’s that he’s not an ordinary politician, that he is one of “change” and “hope” (CHOPE for short). Yet he’s the most party line voter out there. How is that CHOPE? It isn’t. You really need to take notice when the person totally misrepresents what he says he stands for.

– Look at his associations:Ayers, Rezko, Wright, various communists and jihadist sympathizers. And thats the short list.

This guy couldn’t get a security clearance if he were in the military. Yet some are considering acceptable as the commander in chief of our country’s military. He is not fit to lead in any way, shape or form.

We no longer have leaders, in any party. It is time to throw the bums out.

Gone are the days where men of vision, integrity, courage and character where at the forefront of our nation. Now we have a conglomeration of criminals who serve no other interest than to increase their own power, wealth, and our dependence upon them.

The Bill of Rights hangs in the balance at this point. Through parliamentary trickery and slight of hand, we actively have politicians seeking to subvert the Founding Fathers vision of freedom and liberty, to a version of freedom and liberty that means to be free from having to be responsible for oneself.

Wisdom that has been written during our foundational years is extremely relevant today, and these quotes read like a blueprint of what we are seeing today:

Benjamin Franklin said Americans would lose their liberty
‘when the people shall become so corrupted as to need Despotic

“Sam Adams predicted of Americans, ‘…once they lose
their virtue they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the
first external or internal invader.”

President George Washington warned Americans in his farewell
address, ‘…cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be
enabled to subvert the power of the people…’.”

Government has become a house of whores, and they have no inclination to remember that they are here to serve the population of this great nation. I really believe that these people are criminals. They seek to take from us, and then attempt to sell back to us, what it was that they took from us.

I would argue in this current financial crisis that we are about to experience, that there are many members of congress that should arguably end up in prison. And I am talking about big boy and big girl prison, not some hotel jail. These people in congress have potentially damaged the ability of many Americans to live a life of prosperity. One of the tenets of this country is the PURSUIT of prosperity and happiness, and that pursuit and hard work has potentially been destroyed by these criminals, err…. I mean, politicians.

Thomas Jefferson had extraordinary vision:

At the establishment of our constitutions, the judiciary bodies were
supposed to be the most helpless and harmless members of the
government. Experience, however, soon showed in what way they were to
become the most dangerous; that the insufficiency of the means provided
for their removal gave them a freehold and irresponsibility in office;
that their decisions, seeming to concern individual suitors only, pass
silent and unheeded by the public at large; that these decisions,
nevertheless, become law by precedent, sapping, by little and little,
the foundations of the constitution, and working its change by
construction, before any one has perceived that that invisible and
helpless worm has been busily employed in consuming its substance. In
truth, man is not made to be trusted for life, if secured against all
liability to account.

Thomas Jefferson, letter to Monsieur A. Coray, Oct 31, 1823

The quote below is extremely poignant today, and it is something that we need to consider in our current critical state.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Now it is dangerous to consider the notion of extraordinary means to right the ship that we have. However, the situation that we have allowed to occur in our government now requires an extreme resolution. It need not be “bloody”, it does need to have responsible citizens removing the whole of congress. We need to see term limits, we need to see people who have professional experience outside of government seeking temporary positions of duty within our government. We need to remove the criminals that have occupied the halls of congress.

Service in congress is a duty, and should not be a position of high reward because the intoxication that we have allowed our politicians to succumb to is out of bounds.

Where do we start?
By preventing the socialist from gaining entrance to the office of President in this election. That is a place to start.

How have we come so far as to allow a no account political hack, with known and verifiable anti-American associations to get as far as he has. Such a person should not even be involved in our government whatsoever.

We start there, then we throw the bums out. They have become the worst kind of parasites imaginable.
