An Election Today and The President’s Proposed “Jobs” Bill

Neither of the two posts today were planned. I received them yesterday and in one case posting it today was necessary. The second post falls in with what I had planned so it will be sort of a lead in.

“The 9/11 anniversary may be over, but New York City is still making history. Tuesday, parts of Brooklyn and Queens are headed back to the voting booth to find a replacement for exiled Congressman Anthony Weiner, whose Twitter scandals opened the door to a new leadership in the 9th District. Although Democrats have reigned over the seat for 90 years, the race between Dave Weprin (D) and Bob Turner (R) is shockingly close. While some are calling it a referendum for President Obama, new polling suggests that it might be Dave Weprin’s record that’s to blame. As a state senator, Weprin was one of the 33 leaders who voted to force same-sex ‘marriage’ on the people of New York. That didn’t go over too well in his District, where 55% are saying the marriage issue is an important factor in deciding who to vote for. And before the media rushes to discredit the poll, it should note that 59% of the respondents were Democrats.

Contrary to what the pundits would have you believe, social issues are not only playing a role in this election—they may be deciding it! Without Weprin’s support for same-sex ‘marriage,’ this race—even in the ‘bluest of blue districts’—wouldn’t even be close.

Although Democrats outnumber conservatives 3-to-1, the majority of 9th District is still socially conservative. In fact, a lot of the outrage over Weprin’s same-sex ‘marriage’ vote stems from the local Jewish community. When he threw his support behind counterfeit marriage, he cited his faith as part of the rationale. The reaction from orthodox leaders was so severe that Democratic Assemblyman Dov Hikind decided to endorse Republican opponent Bob Turner.

(From the Old Testament, Jewish religious law: “Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.” Leviticus 18: 22 (NIV)

And: “If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.” Leviticus 20: 13 (NIV)

So where in his faith (the Jewish faith) is homosexual behavior allowed? These people just make things up to suit their own purposes!!!

This video is an interview with Democratic Assemblyman Dov Hikind:

With the exception of Matt Lewis at the ‘Daily Caller’, most reporters are either ignoring the connection with social issues—or, as in the case of the ‘Albany Times Union’, mocking it. As loathe as the mainstream press is to acknowledge the impact of traditional values in elections, the numbers don’t lie. Nor do the expense accounts! According to the ‘Washington Times’, Weprin’s campaign is sinking $750,000 into TV ads, compared to a modest $35,000 by Turner’s. The spending gap is even more evident this weekend, as liberals do some hefty last-minute giving. Two national political committees have pumped $200,000 into the race for Weprin, while other radicals are flooding the Democrat with cash. Just this weekend, billionaire activist George Soros fired off a $100,000 check to the effort. We’ll see tomorrow how much their influence buys. In the meantime, as the Republican establishment and GOP hopefuls look for ways to shape the debate in 2012, they should take a long hard look at the polling numbers in NY-9. Obviously, being soft on social issues is a losing strategy.”

If you live in New York Congressional District 9 and are a registered voter, VOTE today—Tuesday. According to both Rush and Sean, Bob Turner is now leading, in at least two polls, by 6 percentage points. However, polls don’t vote; people do! And unfortunately, the Democrats are known for fraud in elections to protect their own.

Beware of fraud; vote if you are an eligible voter! Help to get out the VOTE. PRAY that the people of this nation REPENT and RETURN to GOD‘S MORAL LAW and WILL!

Let’s play ‘Who wants to be a CEO?’ Ok, you are about to create or save a $50,000 job just to claim that new $780 one-time payroll tax credit when the Department of Justice comes blasting into your office with guns drawn and confiscates all your raw materials.

Do you a) thank the President for his bold leadership in job creation, b) blame the Tea Party for foiling his perfect and most wonderful vision of our nation, or c) move your plant to another country where they need warrants to seize your property. Ding ding ding ding ding ding!

Let’s stay with No-Brainers for $400, Alex. Ok, you are about ready to place orders for a few million dollars of new capital equipment that you don’t even need just to take advantage of the President’s one-time accelerated depreciation rule when the NLRB forces you to abandon the billion-dollar plant you just built in South Carolina and move the work to Washington state and overpay union guys who go on strike a lot.

Do you a) praise Mr. Obama for tinkering with an obscure accounting rule in order to benefit Wall Street banks, b) blame the Republicans for not doing it first, or c) build your next plant in a country where mobbed-up union bosses don’t threaten to ‘take you out’ when they welcome the President to their stage. Ding ding ding ding ding ding!

Bonus Round: You are trying to decide where to site a new industrial facility that will employ thousands when you learn that EPA has passed arbitrary rules that will shut down over 20 power plants, double your energy costs, and cause rationing of electricity. Do you, a) salute the President for his commitment to his donors’ green job subsidies, b) blame George W. Bush for global warming, or c) build your plant in Brazil where they will sell you all the energy you need at low costs. Congratulations—you just won an all-expense-paid trip to Sao Paulo!

I must confess I did not watch the President’s speech last night (Neither did I. I was speaking about restoring the Constitution at a local 9/12 meeting!—my addition), I just read a transcript this morning (I didn’t bother! I knew it would be the same old, same old. See my post of September 8th on job creation and growth!—my addition). While he was putting lipstick on his recycled 2009 stimulus pig, I was driving home from a meeting with Wisconsin Governor Walker at one of our plants up north. What a contrast.

President Obama told us (again) what Congress needed to do to create jobs, as if they could (He can‘t!—my addition); Governor Walker asked us how we create jobs in our company. The President dictated incentives and demanded we hire more workers; the Governor asked us what government could do that might matter to us.

President Obama encouraged everyone (again) to go to college. We talked with Governor Walker about the shortage of skilled trades and technicians and the high-paying jobs that we can’t fill for lack of qualified candidates. I learned that most students at Wisconsin’s two-year technical colleges have four-year degrees (and a mountain of student loan debt) in fields where there is no demand.

President Obama promised to plug school budgets and increase teacher pay for a year (again) [Of course! Both major teacher unions have already endorsed him for 2012!!!—my addition]; Governor Walker asked us what Wisconsin students need to learn in school to be employable. The President lectured a room full of professional politicians; the Governor took questions from our plant employees—and he answered them.

Our Governor came to learn; our President hasn’t learned a thing (NOT surprising!!!—my addition).

The President’s words don’t really matter anymore, because his actions are pure Jobzilla. Stomp—Obamacare. Stomp—repeal of the Bush tax cuts. Stomp—union card check by executive order (To help his supporters and contributors!!! NOT the nation!!!—my addition). Stomp—drilling ban. Stomp—EPA edicts. Stomp—$1.4 trillion deficit (This fiscal year!!!—my addition) .

But here he goes again with the roads, bridges, and schools shtick—$150 billion to rebuild our infrastructure after he just threw $800 billion down that rat hole with nary a single new road, bridge, or school to show for it. Here’s a clue: 15 million unemployed Americans aren’t going back to work on roads unless President Jobzilla has 15 million surplus CAT D7 bulldozers stored with the cheese in those government warehouses of his.

And am I the only one that sees pure hypocrisy in the President’s ‘payroll tax holiday’ (NO!!!—my addition)? You realize, I hope, that the payroll tax he is talking about is your Social Security withholding. So not only are you contributing less, which might reduce the amount of benefit you will receive when you retire, but your ‘holiday’ will be taxed at ordinary income rates come the end of the year.

Not to mention that those payroll taxes are what funds Social Security, an already broken system that Republican Rick Perry correctly called a ‘Ponzi scheme’ in Wednesday’s debate. That ‘tax holiday’ money was supposed to go into the Social Security Trust Fund, the pot of money they keep saying is really there for you even though they spent it all on other stuff like teleprompters and tour busses from Canada (Just kicking one can down the road—our increasing debt—while kicking a second can closer to reality—running out of money to pay social security benefits!!! Oh wait, the money that is now in the social security fund is composed partially of federal government I.O.U.’s. The federal government borrowing money from itself to fund unfunded spending which is already out-of-control!!!—my addition).

The President just proposed to defund Social Security by 50% and not one liberal went hysterical on him (That‘s because he‘s NOT a conservative Republican so it‘s alright NOT to fund social security!!!—my addition). Not one drum, not one ‘war on the middle class’, and nothing but gurgling coos from the infants at MSNBC. If a libertarian did that (or Paul Ryan) [Or Rick Perry!—my addition] all XXXX (expletive deleted by me—my addition) would break loose. And how did Social Security get so flush with cash all of a sudden that President Obama can afford to defund it for a whole year? A month ago, we didn’t even have enough money to cut checks to recipients without raising the debt ceiling and borrowing more money (Please don‘t bring that up! Do you expect logical reasoning from the left?—my addition)—remember all the wheelchairs going over the cliff on August 3?

I’m not sure if our Jobzilla President even knows how any of this stuff actually works. The advance hype for his big speech said Mr. Obama would solve our jobs problem with over $400 billion of ‘tax cuts and spending increases that would be paid for by deficit reduction.’ … That statement would need a lot of editing just to be upgraded to stupid.

Here is what is so sad: someone with a college degree wrote that talking point, dozens of people with college degrees approved it, and hundreds of journalists and editors with college degrees printed it. And our President thinks even more people should go to college (Don‘t be nasty! Education does help some people. NOT leftists; but some people!—my addition).

I think less people should go to college and more people should learn to drive bulldozers. And build them and design them and service them and make parts for them, and mine the iron and make the steel and drive the trucks and drill the oil wells and refine the diesel fuel and build ships and nuclear power plants and windmills and appliances and foundries and factories and all the cranes and machine tools to fill them up.

The only jobs plan we need is to get the government off our back so we can do all those things here again. That will put 15 million Americans back to work—for real.”

Is there anything more that needs to be said about the President’s “Job Creating” proposal? One thing! I sure hope the voting public and the Republicans don’t buy into this utter nonsense!!! This bill should NOT even have been proposed!!! It certainly should NOT be passed!!!!!

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” (Last sentence of the Declaration of Independence)
