I must admit … Al Gore doesn’t give up (or know when to quit). So, it now seems that if you do not allow yourself to succumb to the hysterical hype about global warming (aka climate change), you are now “racist;” at least according to Al Gore! It simply does not matter that the “global warming” scientists were caught red-handed falsifying facts to support their assertions, and that the real average global temperature has not risen! It does not matter that Al Gore jets around in his PRIVATE JET spreading his “inconvenient” untruths while lecturing us all on decreasing our own carbon footprints; or that Al Gore admitted that his support for ethanol subsidies was a “mistake” and he was simply concerned with getting vote from corn growers in Tennessee and Iowa. Let me get this straight … all that matters is that, if I don’t fall for his “scam” … then I am a racist. I wonder what he would call his own dad … who voted against every civil rights bill that came across the table?
So, moving on …
Who in the heck uses T-Mobile? AT&T has promised to bring 5,000 jobs back to the U.S. and create 96, 000 jobs modernizing their network infrastructure if they can buy T-Mobile. It seems they would dearly like to have T-Mobile’s 4G network structure to help service AT&T customers. But, good old Eric Holder (of “fast and furious” fame), is afraid of a AT&T monoply and that Verizon, Sprint, U.S. Cellular, etc., are not enough choices for the American public. It is nice to see he has our best interests at heart!
Who needs 101, 000 new private sector jobs anyway! Obama is going save us all … he’s going to have the government employ us after next Wednesday. So what if tax rates go sky-high to pay us all … at least we will all have government jobs!
The nerve of those republicans … scheduling their debate, way in advance, on the day Obama decreed he needed to have his jobs speech. I am surprised, and a bit proud, that Boehner had the guts to call him on it.
Speaking of jobs, I may be wrong, but I just bet Obama’s new jobs plan will want to borrow money from the treasury to create more government funded jobs that will naturally lead to increased taxes. What the Obama administration doesn’t understand (or simply hates to admit) is the fact that small businesses make up about half of our nation’s annual Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and employ 60 percent of the American workforce. In addition to this, about 66% of all real new jobs in this country are created by American small businesses!
That being said, I think that the “Anointed One” should create real private sector careers for citizens by doing things to help American small businesses create new jobs (what a thought). This would directly increase tax revenues because more Americans (who are not simply on the tax payer’s payroll) will be working. This is much more effective than increasing taxes on those who already pay more than their fair share to form some new government job banks!
Obama should then lower our energy costs by creating real energy jobs (and not chasing pipe dreams about wind powered cars, etc.).
Lastly, he should drastically reduce the imports from foreign sources … particularly those sources who threaten the security of the U.S. and its allies.
How would this be done, you might ask? Obama could start by:
- Rolling back the quagmire of existing regulations that cripple small businesses. Excessive regulation interferes with small business growth, and negatively impacts new job creation in the private sector.
- Lift the oil drilling moratorium, and remove the miles of red tape that prevent more offshore oil drilling! Free up Section 1002 of the ANWR region of Alaska (less space than a square with 50-mile sides) for new exploration and drilling.
By removing the red tape, and taking away the atmosphere of uncertainty and government created roadblocks; Obama could create a lot of new jobs as American companies take advantage of new and sustainable opportunities to increase energy production, lower our dependence on foreign oil, and go along ways toward putting America back to work.
Anyway, just a few thoughts!
