(Washington, D.C.)—Taxpayers can now make plans for the biggest barbecue in American history as Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) prepare a bonfire that will be fueled by billions of dollar bills. President Barack Obama is acting as unofficial emcee, stumping the country to sell the Democratic Congress plan that guarantees the sky will not fall. An added bonus, even if the sky does fall, is that the air will be cleaner despite all those dollar bills burning, because Democrats are eager to limit carbon emissions and create the next economic bubble for the country—alternative energy and Cap and Trade. Welcome to the most liberal ideology of all time. I would say ‘I told you so’ but you already know that if you read this column on a regular basis.
The Pelosi-Reid contingent says the ‘stimulus’ bill must be passed immediately, and supporters imply anyone who doesn’t support it is a dirty (conservative) dog. I hereby apologize to my trusty hound and constant companion for usurping his species to make a political point. So who are some beneficiaries of this bill?
The bill designates money for minority construction workers. In a previous column, you can see the video of economic advisor Robert Reich telling white construction workers not to apply.
The bill designates money for STD prevention because apparently there are still a number of people who stubbornly refuse to purchase condoms although they’re cheap and very user friendly these days. Minorities are hardest hit by STDs, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Men who decide to have unprotected sex with men will also benefit from the bill.
Aside from sex assistance and green energy, a very lucky little mouse is one species that will benefit from the $30 million bucks Pelosi’s home state will receive. Cute critter, the Salt Marsh Harvest Mouse, but pricey—a perfect metaphor for San Francisco, designee of the money.
The Democratic Party will likely benefit in terms of growing voters, since groups like ACORN still stand a chance to get their energetic hands on our tax dollars. It’s my opinion the DNC is the impetus behind turning the country brown by legalizing anyone who’s in the country without proper documentation and naturally, by providing food stamps and other assistance.
If a country can be handed to the world on a platter, Pelosi and Reid can be credited for doing so. Pelosi loves to talk about the “failed policies of the last eight years.” But her party has controlled Congress for 43 of the last 55 years. And if you think about it, things were going pretty good until her party regained control approximately three years ago. The most conspicuous aspect of the new administration working with Congress is the ability of many in the Obama camp to deny IRS their just due and get forgiveness for it years later. You can read about tax dodgers running the country and writing your tax laws in our previous column.
Meanwhile, doesn’t it strike you as strange no one has come up with a valid explanation about what made the economy suddenly tank? When will Congress admit the truth? When will they investigate why money market funds imploded on September 18, 2008?
An article in Politico suggests Pelosi and Reid tangled over the barbecue bill: “It’s ruffled feathers, big time,” said a House Democrat speaking on condition of anonymity. “The speaker went through the roof.”
So Pelosi went through the roof. Not to fret—it’s all good. I hear she bought herself a new broom and it definitely emits no carbon.
