Seriously, Shut The Hell Up You Damn Cry Babies

The majority of this posting is pure personal commentary and rant.

Gallup Poll released the following poll today.

Gallup

Three in four Americans (76%) want the government to take actions to block or recover the bonuses insurance giant AIG paid its executives after receiving federal bailout funds.

Poll Results

Question

Answer

Which comes closer to your thinking about this matter: The government should not intervene because the AIG bonuses were part of existing contracts in place before the bailout money was given to AIG,  (or) the government should take actions to try to block or recover any bonuses paid to AIG executives because the company was given government bailout money?

17% -government should NOT intervene

76% -government should intervene

How do you personally feel about these bonuses – outraged, bothered, or not particularly bothered? 59%-Outraged
26%-Bothered
11%-Not particularly bothered
Views on AIG bonuses by party affiliation Democrats:
83%- block/recover bonuses
70%- Outraged
Independents:
77%-block/recover bonuses
54%- Outraged
Republicans:
67%-block/recover bonuses
56%- Outraged

Seriously, shut the hell you damn cry babies.

The majority of you are not outraged, you are jealous.

Your personal envy of another should not have effect on their personal incomes.

As has been established, the government knew of these bonuses long before the bonuses were paid. The stimulus bill allowed for these bonuses to be paid.

I must also ask, are those of you who believe these bonuses should be returned also demanding with the same amount of outrage that president Obama and other politicians return the monies they received from AIG?

ABC

AIG employees kept doling out donations to politicians, including presidential candidate Barack Obama, after getting bailed out with federal funds last year, raising the question of whether those politicians will now return the money. […]

top AIG recipients for the 2008 campaign:

1. Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., $103,100
2. Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., $101,332
3. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., $59,499
4. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., $35,965
5. Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., $24,750
6. Former Gov. Mitt Romney, (R) Pres $20,850
7. Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., $19,975
8. Rep. John Larson, D-Conn, $19,750
9. Sen. John Sununu, R-N.H., $18,500
10. Former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani (R) Pres $13,200
11. Rep. Paul Kanjorski, D-Pa., $12,000
12. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., $11,000

That is just the tip of an iceberg I do not have time to climb at the moment.

 

 

Let’s not forget also, who the controlling partner in AIG is, our government.

The government owns at least 79% right now.

Politicians are of course suggesting now that the employees who received the bonuses be taxed on those bonuses at up to 100%.

Carolyn MCcarthy (D) New York would like to take it even further if she knew of a way.

MSNBC

A hundred percent, as far as I‘m concerned, is not even enough.  If I could tax them 1,000 percent, I would tax them 1,000 percent. 

Why the hell aren’t more Americans outrage at the above statement?

Why aren’t more outraged at the very idea of retroactively taxing a business?

That would set a dangerous precedent, that I assure you, you want no part of. What will you think of a retroactive tax when they come for you?

The damned jealousy of some makes me so angry. At one time it did not bother me much at all, but it seems to be a prevailing tendency in America.

What happened to the America I grew up in?

Not that jealousy did not exist, however it did seem that the majority of Americans sought their own success and did not begrudge the success of another.

Barack Obama is not only creating policy that ushers this nation into a true socialist (as opposed to the semi-socialist nation we have been for sometime) state, but the people are clamoring for it weather they see it or not.

You may recall the Fox Dynamic poll I posted about on February 20th of this year.

Those polled concluded that Americans rely on the government too much while at the same time expressing that they [the person polled] believed in the majority that the government should provide, food, healthcare, housing, and employment.

Who the hell are we that we think we deserve something without having earned it , while those who have earned something (AIG executives) are not deserving of what they worked for!?

What happened to the American attitude of government staying out of the way and we will provide our own opportunities and either succeed or fail based upon our own efforts and merit?

Boulder Colorado Requests Six Million In Federal Funds To Update 60 Hybrid Cars

From the Peoples Republic of Boulder comes the following:

Complete Colorado

The city of Boulder asked for $6 million to "...[p]rovide funding to convert 60 hybrid electric vehicles to Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles with Vehicle to Grid technology. The cars are part of the City of Boulder, Boulder County, and the University of Colorado fleets." The retrofit of each vehicle, therefore, would cost $100-thousand dollars a piece.

In case you missed it, that is one hundred thousand dollars per car.

 

Day Without A Gay

Homosexuals on strike.

A Day Without A Gay

1%, possibly 2% of America does not show up to work?

My first thought, they must have more confidence in the current economy than I do, to skip a day of work and risk losing their job. Of course, no business is going to fire any of them because they know the risk is too great.

The homosexual machinery is rolling at full speed and has proven since Nov 4th that they are willing to run over anyone who get’s in their way, a sane employer would not risk it.

Secondly, what do I care if 1 to 2 percent of the population does not show up to work within a 24 hour period. No real effect was felt after the ‘day without a Mexican’ or ‘brownout’ as some called it.

The only way any effect can be felt by such a tantrum is if non-homosexual gay marriage supporters join them in large number. That is likely not going to happen, and then it wouldn’t truely be a Day Without a Gay would it?

Third, get over it.

Stop throwing a fit.

Stop trying to impose your will upon others (I don’t get to say that very often, most often it is said to me simply because I believe in the God of the bible).

You want to impose your social belief that homosexuals should be able to be married to one another, a majority of your fellow California residents do not want homosexual marriage to be legal.

Grow up already, go to work and act like adults.

P.S.- you already have the right to be married, to a member of the opposite sex, just like the rest of us.

Anything beyond that IS a special right.

You are not anymore special than any other American and are not deserving of any rights beyond any other American.

Satan Is Dead… Again

hajj

Satan is dead, again.
He is scheduled to die at the next Hajj as well.

I know, I sound very intolerant, religiously bigoted…

I’ve always found the Hajj a tad strange and scarey. The images of it give me the creeps, such a volume of people, the seeming chaos.

It also seems more than a little primative as well.

To be fair, there are groups which make claim to Christanity that I believe have some primitive rituals as well.

By primitive I do not mean, unga-bunga cave-man primitive, I mean false religion primitive, tribal to the extreme.

Just my perception from the outside.

Breitbart

Hundreds of thousands of Muslim pilgrims massed in a valley near the Saudi holy city of Mina on Monday for the stoning of Satan, the last and most dangerous rite of the annual hajj.Hundreds of people have been trampled to death in stampedes which have blighted several previous pilgrimages to Islam’s holiest sites when the faithful rush to hurl stones at huge pillars symbolising the devil.

To complete the ritual, a pilgrim must throw 21 pebbles at each of three 25-metre (82-foot) pillars and this year the faithful are being given pebbles in pre-packed bags to spare them the effort of searching for the stones.
