3 Year Cop Jobs: Coming To A City Near You

29 07 2009

Good news – your town may get an extra police man (or two) for 3 whole years! Biden announced today the cities that will receive a piece of the $1 billion award to law enforcement agencies to hire police officers – with money coming from the Stimulus bill. The positions are 3 year jobs – (can you get vested in a retirement plan in three years?)- and cities like New York City didn’t receive anything – when Anchorage, Alaska got 9! My city, sadly, won’t benefit from one extra policeman for three years. The story is here.

So in three years, after ONE BILLION DOLLARS is spent with money we don’t have…then what do we do?

Cut Jobs to Save Money; Spend Money To Add Jobs

29 07 2009

So in the merry-go-round of Obamaeconomics, he’s gone into debt to stimulate our economy to add jobs. With a $2 trillion deficit, his centerpiece has been the need to create more jobs.

So then he asks his cabinet to cut $100 million from their budgets – you know – to show how they can save money while he spends money we don’t have.

They have responded with $102 million in proposed cuts.

One of the cuts is from the Department of Labor – who is proposing to disband the Employment Standards Administration – eliminating an assistant secretary of the department and 2 department secretaries – a savings of $1.75 million.

You would think when you are trying to get everyone to believe you are adding jobs, you might want to keep around a “Employment Standards Administration” department – whatever that is – and NOT contribute to the layoff rate by cutting jobs in that “Employment” department at your very own Department of Labor.

They are cutting jobs to save money…while Obama is spending money to add jobs.


The Czar Bazaar

27 07 2009

When you said you will run the most transparent administration ever but you know you need to hide stuff – what do you do? Bring on the czars!

Obama has appointed 31 czars, according to Taxpayers for Common Sense. We got car czar, climate czar, domestic violence czar and thank goodness – at last – we have a Great Lakes czar. Nevermind that we have government agencies – using your taxpayer money – that already do this work. So why the czars?

Either you don’t trust the people you hired to do the job, or you are trying to hide something. Take the Secretary of State – his former rival – Hillary Clinton. Why does Obama need a Sudan czar, Mideast Peace czar AND a Mideast Policy czar when he has a state department?

Michelle Malkinhas a new book out on the subject and will be blogging all week on the mysteries of the czars.


Honest Squiggly Lines

I’ve been posting Rasmussen’s squiggly line Presidential approval chart for awhile, and the latest one today is just pure delight.

Welcome to the “other side” America…. We are glad you are waking up.



More Declining Numbers

24 07 2009

Dropping faster than Obama’s approval numbers are his loyal viewers.

His press conference July 22 to sell the American people on the urgency of going into debt to provide healthcare coverage for the 10% of Americans who currently don’t have health insurance was the least watched press conference of his young Presidency. In fact, every time he has one of these press ops he draws fewer viewers.

2/9/09      49,455,000 – stimulus sell

3/24/09      40,354,000 – economic recovery revival

4/29/09     28,811,000 – 100th day in office celebration

7/22/09   24,682,519 – healthcare scare sell

Apparently, Americans are “just not that into him” anymore….


Now, President Police Officer

24 07 2009

First Obama is the Energy Czar – saying we should turn down our thermostats to 72 degrees (when his Oval Office in winter was as warm as Hawaii).

Next is Dr. Obama who says maybe an woman’s elderly mother should just take a pill instead of getting a pacemaker at age 100. Dr. Obama also thinks you shouldn’t have your tonsils out – or so he said in last night’s press conference that about 100 people watched…

Now he’s a cop – a law enforcement expert – and he’s waded in publicly on a situation involving one of his friends – who was arrested last week. His friend had locked himself out of his own house, and there was a reported break in when his friend broke in to his own house. When the police arrived, they questioned the man – Obama’s friend – who was found inside the house. Obama’s friend accused the police of racism, refused to produce identification and was arrested – but the charges later dropped. The policeman who responded is an expert in racial profiling, with an excellent record, and says he acted appropriately, arresting someone who broke into a home and refused to produce identification. Never mind the racial slurs that Obama friend hurled at him….  Now Mr. President Obama Police Officer says the Cambridge police acted “stupidly”. The PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES, after admitting he didn’t know all the facts in the case, just called a police officer stupid for arresting one of his friends.
