Earmarks Don’t Mean Crap

Here’s a great article about how earmarks don’t mean CRAP.

They’re just a straw-man argument, used by fake conservatives, like Eric Cantor, to dupe the public into thinking that they’re good on spending.

A real conservative would not waste his or her time on stupid earmarks.  They would be going after the appropriations’ bills.  That’s where the big spending is:

But really, we’re talking about a pittance in the big scheme of the federal budget. Slaughter all the earmarks, and it would barely put a dent in runaway spending.

Well actually, it wouldn’t even do that.

That’s because earmarks come out of a total amount of federal spending that’s carved in stone before the earmarks are ever doled out to the lawmakers. In other words, the money’s going to get spent anyway.

You Need to Teach Your Child Spanish!

Or so says, Obama, in the below video:

A poll two years ago showed that “Eighty-five percent (85%) of Americans believe that English should be the official language of the United States. The latest Rasmussen Reports survey of 1,000 adults found that only 11% disagree and 4% are not sure.”

John McCain should seize this opportunity, but he probably won’t because he doesn’t want to upset his illegal-immigrant base.

Pure Communism from Obama

Here are some excerpts from an Obama speech. This is pure Communism.

This almost makes me want to vote for McCain, but then all I have to do is read what he says and it’s pure Marxism, too. November will suck!

McCain and Obama: Two Peas From the Same Pod!

Each day I am more and more convinced that there are very little, if any at all, differences between Obama and McCain.

From life to guns to taxes to the role of government, they seem very similar.  They both support the same end — bigger, more intrusive government — but only differ in their means to which they want to achieve their end.

For instance, a recent headline reads, “Obama unveils clapdown on oil speculators.”  But McCain said the same thing: “I believe there needs to be a thorough and complete investigation of speculators to find out whether speculation has been going on and, if so, how much it has affected the price of a barrel of oil. There’s a lot of things out there that need a lot more transparency and, consequently, oversight.”

Not much difference, huh.

And don’t forget that it was the Communist Lenin who wanted speculators to be “shot on the spot.”

Obama Wants To Regulate CEO Pay…

… Wait, not Obama.  I mean McCain wants to regulate CEO pay:

“Americans are right to be offended when the extravagant salaries and severance deals of CEOs … bear no relation to the success of the company or the wishes of shareholders,” he will say, adding that some of those chief executives helped bring on the country’s housing crisis and market troubles.

“If I am elected president, I intend to see that wrongdoing of this kind is called to account by federal prosecutors. And under my reforms, all aspects of a CEO’s pay, including any severance arrangements, must be approved by shareholders,” he will say.

There you have it.  We have a choice between two Marxist in November.
