Speaker Boehner Shows Intelligent Side


  The U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner has decided to listen to the Tea Party constituents once again. In a press conference this morning he decided he wanted to extend the Bush tax cuts until next year. For anyone who does not know what I am talking about this is basically giving everyone including the wealthy tax cuts for the next fiscal year. Incredible this man did not even listen to the public. Correct me if I am wrong but there was an election just days ago and Obama won. This should be a case open and shut as far as legislation is concerned. The American people obviously want what Obama promised and part of that promise was not to extend these tax cuts.

            When President George W Bush proposed these tax cuts he was making an idiotic mistake that cost our country millions in tax revenue. Some may say that we deserve this tax break we need it in order to survive. This is pure baloney, we do not need more tax breaks we need a better economy. When our economy broke several years ago it was a domino effect all over the world. Asia is the only continent on our planet that is flourishing right now. Considering the United States is less than favorable in Asia this is not a good thing.

          John Boehner is a Tea Party puppet, the Tea Party picks and chooses what they want based on their bank accounts and Boenher complies.  If it will put more money in their already full pockets they are all for it. This is why the Tea Party makes me thoroughly sick, they can care less about the middle class like they would want you to believe. This is all based on their actions not their talk. The day following Obama's tremendous win over Mitt Romney Mr. Speaker went on live television saying he would compromise. Today he has flip flopped over to the other side. This is sounding like a Star Wars movie. He says that raising tax revenue with make job creation that much harder. This is all news to me and anyone else listening. President Obama would like tax rates as they were when President Bill Clinton was in office, at that time our country flourished as it should. So tell me Mr. Speaker why exactly will this lower job creation? Jobs were at the highest this country has seen in many years while President Clinton was in office. I would love to see their spreadsheets showing the bullshit that spews from their mouths.
                                    John Boehner Wasted Drunk         Luckily there are far less Tea Party winners during this election. It looks as though some people woke up and realized they were being had by the very party they backed. The Tea Party is full of far fetched promises and out right lies. It is as if you are believing Fox News they are pretty much one in the same. Fox News caters to the Tea Party since most of the members contribute far too much money to that ludicrous television station. The majority of people that I personally know are aware how full of crap Fox News is, but there are still a few people I know taken by the idiots they watch on there. Some of the women look a little like Stepford wives, I wouldn't be surprised if those women on their were robots after hearing some of the obscure, moronic things coming out of their mouths. It could also be that they are brainwashed by that evil station.
I'm just going to call this one Foxy Bimbos
      I am quite sure Michelle Bachmann was very perturbed by the result of the election. She is a smart one and below is a very good example of how less than intelligent this woman really is. There is obviously a problem with the state that elected her, I wont say names...This is an old video but it is off of a CNN news cast.
                            Michelle Bachmann shows her intelligent side Bottom line is the Tea Party has so many very different outlooks on life it looks like they are completely mindless. The best part of this video is that she was the response to President Obama's State of the Union Address via The Tea Party. Way to put up the smartest candidate! Someone really messed up there.

In other news....Gay Marriage and Marijuana won some states over this election period...not to the President...legalizing Marijuana would be in your best interest it would generate far more revenue than you can imagine. I am quite sure someone has showed you a graph of how much it could potentially generate.

Hail to the Chief

Congratulations President Obama, I knew you would win. In fact this was written before the election was even underway it is not even 10 a.m. central time yet. I am very happy at the results. I am looking forward to seeing the results from other votes taking place right now.

On my ballot it asked if there should be federal regulation regarding campaign spending and funding. As far as I know the US Supreme Court voted against putting a cap on election spending saying the cap would do away with a freedom everyone was entitled. Entitled that should have been Mitt Romney’s Campaign slogan. It certainly fit the man that was born into his bubble filled with money.
There are so many things that need to be done in this country you have a long four years to go Mr. President. Many people believe you are up to the challenge as do I. Education is one of your top priorities and hopefully it will continue to be. This is an important part of our country and it needs to continue. Job creation is still needed it is extremely tough to get a job right now and it should not be that way. Houses are being foreclosed on everywhere still this is a fact if we do not stop it there will be ghost towns all over the country. People are being forced out of their homes as a result of job loss and/or higher cost of living that do not match the peoples pay. This is a growing epidemic in the United States, they are saying unemployment is down, that makes sense people can no longer collect benefits if they are exhausted. I have to give a lot of credit to Michelle Obama she is a strong woman and think she is a classy woman despite criticism she has been an outstanding first lady. Congratulations to both of you take care of your family as well as our country!

The polls are closed and counting the votes should be a chore and a half. The Electoral College better be fair with their ultimate decision our country/world depends on it.  This is a bad time in the world and we need a strong leader who will not be the Republican Puppet. Fortunately the people that have not been brain washed by Fox News will understand my last statement. For all of the Fox News watchers you really need to understand that they are lying to you and giving you false beliefs, it is not News after all. If you had an understanding of how the government worked at all there would be no reason to watch that pitiful excuse for a news channel. I watch for the humor in it, most of the time it does anger me mainly because of the obvious biasness of the whole network.  I can tell you the MSNBC is a strong Democrat supporting channel as well, they do not go as far as Fox News they do not actually lie to you they state facts. Congratulations Mr. President on 4 more years!!

In other news Glenn Beck is at it again...

Taking a quote from the New York Times on 11/4 "I believe Mr. Romney prays on his knees every day," ... "I believe he is being guided." He is being guided Mr. Beck, guided by the crazy Republicans that want nothing more than a pocket full of money. Glenn Beck will most likely cry when hearing the news his darling Romney lost. Sucks to be you Glenn Beck please go away now. This is not your world boss you’re a psycho and the American people have figured that out now. Stay on the internet no one wants you on the television anymore.

Voting in Chicago

For years it has been a simple procedure to register to vote. I have been a registered voter since I was 18 years old. I'm pretty old so about half of my life we will say. In mid-July I moved from a rural area in Illinois to the city of Chicago. About a month after I went on the Chicago Board of Election website and printed out a change of address form and mailed it in. I am a busy person with three active children so it slipped my mind to check on it. When a member of my household received their voters registration card, I decided to look into it. When I looked myself up I was still voting in my old district this is a bad thing, yes the Presidential election it may not matter, but it will matter when it comes to where I live and the things that go on in my neighborhood. Frankly when I did vote in the small town you were lucky to find a democratic candidate on the ballot at all.  I called the board of election to find out what was going on, a woman let me know that I was able to go to my local park district and vote.
Three days ago that is exactly what I did, I waited in a long line to get to the front, a lady even had me fill out my signature card saying what I was giving her was fine. When I get to the counter the ill-tempered woman tells me she does not know what the hell is going on and sends me to a supervisor who makes a phone call and proceeds tells me to go to the downtown location to vote. I’m a woman so I’m pretty pissed off at this point. Seriously, I live here see look at the mail look at my ID. NO! HAHA you can’t vote here go downtown! This is a hassle, but in my opinion worth it, I cannot complain if I do not vote and I sure do love to complain. 

About three days later I was dropped off at the elevated train, went to Washington/Wells stop walked about a quarter mile to the Chicago Board of Election on the 6th floor. I waited in a pretty long line, I would say at least 50 ahead of me and I was there fairly early in the morning. Some lady took my information and sent me to a separate line. I waited in that line around ten minutes or so and was finally able to vote I voted for Obama/Biden of course. There were many other things on the ballot that I felt strongly about as well. City workers pensions, they would like to lower them and it would affect family so that I voted against.  I found something on the ballot I had no idea was on there as well and I was intensely excited about, regarding federally regulating spending on elections. It would bring back the Citizens United Supreme Court ruling which was atrocious! Putting a cap on election spending would turn our country toward a better place to be. That should be everyone’s goal to get back on top in every aspect of your life including your country. So voting was finished I took the train back home and all was well. 

Some people getting on an el train

One line I stood in...
That is not my hand
