Wildebeest Care is the Key to Economic Recovery!

March 6, 2009

Centered by the ever-present bronze-tinted, but opaque teleprompters (whispers among the White House Residential Staff say that before joining Michelle in bed each night, the TPs–as they call them–are arranged on either side of the Presidential bed’s headboard with a script running to the effect, “Yeah, baby! Yeah, Momma; Daddy’s got yo’ back and I cannot lie!” and “The Big O’s a gonna fix it right!”–there has been no video to confirm this, unfortunately, but keep watching to YouTube, you never know) and flanked by his Minister of Propaganda; the Secretary of the Interior, amazingly the only nominee that had paid his taxes, but expects to recoup that money through the Indian Affairs and Casinos Department; and Wildebeest Czar, Jim Folwer, the anaconda-wrestling, geriatric right-hand man, sidekick, schlub and patsy to Marlin Perkins on Wild Kingdom, President (Transparency and No Earmarks) Obama addressed the ever-so-important National Wildlife Reform Forum yesterday.

After introductions and the wait for the teleprompters to warm up, he prefaced (reading from said devices) the need for the forum with, “By a wide margin, the biggest threat to our nation’s balance sheet is the skyrocketing cost of Wildebeest care–it’s not even close.  If we want to create jobs and rebuild our economy, and get our federal budget under control, then we have to address the crushing cost of Wildebeest care this year, in this administration.” And finally, he expressed the direness of emergency, “The cost of Wildebeest care now causes a  bankruptcy in America every thirty seconds.” Gosh, who gnu?

When confronted by a reporter, that Wildebeests are not native to the United States or the Western hemisphere for that matter, and pretty much restricted to the African continent and almost exclusively to the Serengeti, and asked for the research regarding the statistics on bankruptcies caused by Gnu Care, the effervescent and bouncy, Christina Romer of the Council of Economic Czars and Rasputins (doesn’t she remind you of your old Bozo Bop Bag, the punching ballon from your childhood, or a Russian Nested Doll that you want to un-nest to see if she just disappears), she bounced and giggled, “I’m gonna [sic] to have to  check the numbers for you; I think the important thing is the idea is absolutely true.”

So, now we have another (one) expressly derived reason and cause of the Economic Crisis and the KEY to recovery–fix Wildebeest Care!

In reality, he was centered between the ever-present teleprompters, and we’re still awaiting the video evidence regarding the WH Bedroom rumors, and flanked by his minions, but Dear Leader was speaking before the Health Care Forum and indeed The Key to recovery was fixing health care.

“By a wide margin, the biggest threat to our nations balance sheet is the skyrocketing cost of health care; it’s not even close.” Followed by, “If we want to create jobs and rebuild our economy, and get our federal budget under control, then we have to address the crushing cost of health care this year in this administration.” and “The cost of health care now causes a  bankruptcy in America Every thirty seconds.”

The LEFT’s Side of the Coin on Patriotism

February 21, 2009

There is always another side to the coin and that includes the LEFT–here’s one of there takes on how our “right-winged writers” are being “outrageous, scandalous and unpatriotic” regarding HRO and Congress’ valiant and brave effort to right what’s wrong with the United States. Marks Steyn rightly takes humbrage of the challenge to his patriotism at NRO Corner. 

Published in the Reporter

It is outrageous, scandalous and unpatriotic, what is being written about President Obama and a Congress that is attempting to clean up the mess left in Washington by yet another mediocre Republican, who destroyed America at home and her good name and reputation in the world.
The cases in point are two letters to the editor (“Stop the stimulus package” and “Pork and ideology: Don’t count on stimulus,” both published Feb. 13) attacking directly and indirectly the Obama administration’s strategies and Congress’ will. They do so by quoting two writers and political commentators, Amity Shales [sic–he can’t even check spelling of someone he attacks] and Mark Steyn, whose patriotic loyalty and political opinion is questionable.

 Shales still claims that the New Deal was a scheme and that President Roosevelt and the New Deal did nothing to end the Great Depression. She is probably still longing for the return of Republican Herbert Hoover, who declined to pursue legislative relief, believing that it would make people dependent on the federal government. Only toward the end of his term did he support a series of legislative solutions to the Great Depression — too little too late. On Hurricane Katrina, Shales wrote, “The fact that the country and President Bush personally were already mobilized for disaster has saved lives”; she was fired from the Financial Times for her outrageous and questionable remarks.

 As for Mark Steyn, Salon.com published an article calling Steyn a “faux warrior” who is “one of the most extremist warmongers in our country,” adding that Steyn has been “as fundamentally wrong as one can be about virtually every issue he has touched.”He appears on radio shows, such as those of right-wingers Rush Limbaugh and Hugh Hewitt. Limbaugh has publicly stated that he wants President Obama to fail. You can’t get more unpatriotic and right wing than that.

 It is apparent that the two letter writers anchor their knowledge on right-wing writings and thoughts that are fundamentally wrong; therefore, their assumptions and ideology are by inference wrong as well.

ACORN Office in the White House

February 21, 2009

HRO (His Royal Obamaness) signed an Executive Order “ESTABLISHMENT OF THE WHITE HOUSE OFFICE OF URBAN AFFAIRS” on Thursday the 19th, evidently quietly with no fanfare; another campaign promised payoff to his roots and supporters.

Not only is ACORN in line for 100s of Millions in “Stimulus” money (they DO have to apply for it–do any of you think that other organizations of lesser notoriety will receive moneys over ACORN?) but now, don’t worry,  the new Urban Affairs Office will ensure all that money gets where it’s supposed to go. Just wait to see who he puts in charge.

EXECUTIVE ORDER

– – – – – – –

ESTABLISHMENT OF THE WHITE HOUSE OFFICE OF URBAN AFFAIRS

 By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to take a coordinated and comprehensive approach to developing and implementing an effective strategy concerning urban America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

 Section 1.  Policy.  About 80 percent of Americans live in urban areas, and the economic health and social vitality of our urban communities are critically important to the prosperity and quality of life for Americans.  Vibrant cities spawn innovation, economic growth, and cultural enrichment through the businesses, universities, and civic, cultural, religious, and nonprofit institutions they attract.  Forward-looking policies that encourage wise investment and development in our urban areas will create employment and housing opportunities and make our country more competitive, prosperous, and strong.  In the past, insufficient attention has been paid to the problems faced by urban areas and to coordinating the many Federal programs that affect our cities.  A more comprehensive approach is needed, both to develop an effective strategy for urban America and to coordinate the actions of the many executive departments and agencies whose actions impact urban life.

 Sec. 2.  Establishment.  There is established within the Executive Office of the President the White House Office of Urban Affairs (the “Office”).

 Sec. 3.  Functions.  The principal functions of the Office are, to the extent permitted by law:

 (a)  to provide leadership for and coordinate the development of the policy agenda for urban America across executive departments and agencies;

 (b)  to coordinate all aspects of urban policy;

 (c)  to work with executive departments and agencies to ensure that appropriate consideration is given by such departments and agencies to the potential impact of their actions on urban areas;

 (d)  to work with executive departments and agencies, including the Office of Management and Budget, to ensure that Federal Government dollars targeted to urban areas are effectively spent on the highest-impact programs; and

 (e)  to engage in outreach and work closely with State and local officials, with nonprofit organizations, and with the private sector, both in seeking input regarding the development of a comprehensive urban policy and in ensuring that the implementation of Federal programs advances the objectives of that policy.  [my emphasis]

 Sec. 4.  Coordination.  In performing its functions, the Office shall work closely with [read the rest through the White House title link above]
