Clunker-Cashless, Stimulus Porn and Pelosi’s Shrieking

leave a comment »


Well, there a lot of little things on which for me to comment.   Lately, there’s been so much going on in the world, I wonder if the liberals are sorta running a media blitz play with all the noise on the radar in hopes of diverting attention away from the real threats, namely Crap and Tax and the Careless and Unhealthy Reform Bill. But here is a three-fer for you of bite size rabidity on which to munch…

1. Well, my friend Roy should love this one. Turns out the Cash for Clunkers program may be stalling out (as much as (p)MSNBC hated reporting this story).  As I previously wrote on TRC, one of the reasons that this program was such a bad idea was my number one reason – adds to the overly exuberant government spending.  The program hasn’t been active very long – just a couple weeks and about 23,000 cars have already been purchased, with a government price tag of about $95M.  If left to itself, it probably could sap $1B of non-existent money from the federal treasury.

But there is a lesson to be learned here – one for the auto manufacturers to understand.  If you make a product that people want and price it competitively, people WILL buy it.  If people don’t want to buy your product, it could mean that your product is priced too high.  Remember, the ultimate value of something is what someone will pay for it.  Otherwise, my kid would be able to set up her lemonade stand, charge $58 for a 6 oz. cup of lemonade and gripe to the government for a bailout because sales are down.

2. Well, I guess the liberals think that providing funding for pornography is an important project, designed to create jobs and grow the economy.  As we found out today, the National Endowment of the Arts has dropped some of their red-inked money into the red light district, funding projects like the San Fran-freak-o debauchery Perverts Put Out and putting up $50k on a horror-erotica called Thundercrack, featuring three men, four women, and a gorilla.  Hmm…spending taxpayer money on porn involving killing and animals to me doesn’t fall into the “money well spent” column.

It would seem that crazy Uncle Joe is asleep at the wheel while he’s supposed to be watching for any fraud, waste, and abuse of any of the stimulus money.  So what we’ll do is take an impossible task, such as monitor the expenditure of stimulus money and give it to an incompetent boob like Biden.  Of course, earlier last month, Biden came out saying, “duh, yup, money’s a-being wasted!”  Good one, Uncle Joe.  We don’t need Urim and Thummim to figure that one out.

(can I say “boob”…considering that this bullet is all about taxpayer dollars for porn?)

3. The Queen Bee, the Head Battleaxe of the House, Nancy Pelosi lashed out in fury, demonizing all the evil insurance companies, telling us all about their immorality.  Now, I won’t disagree wholly with Pelosi here, because I believe any industry that makes millions off the suffering and fear of others (insurance and legal, for example), is evil.  But Pelosi’s attack isn’t over what the insurance companies do, but rather, it is to demonize them in order to push the Health Care(less) Reform Bill through Congress.

The thing is, as Rush Limbaugh eloquently pointed out in his radio program this week, Democrats need a demon, an enemy to fight.  They can’t keep lashing out at Bush, Cheney, Rove, Libby, or the like anymore because they’ve got all the cards now.  They’ve had the House and the Senate since 2006 and for the last six months, the White House.  They’ve even got the Senate filibuster-proof, so there is no reason they shouldn’t be able to get their agenda done, right?  What do they need the GOP for?  But that’s not enough – they don’t have a dragon to fight, so they have to attack windmills for their glory.  Without a demon to fight, the Democrat party has nothing. 

To my friends…
