A Sermon Straight from Pastor GW Bush

Karl Rove


More Budget Woes

 

I think it would be good to note that, while Bush pretended to be sympathetic to low income working moms, his budget reveals that he is trying to cut back the food stamps and child care benefits they receive in order to expand tax cuts for the wealthy. Paul Krugman makes this point very well in his editorial in the New York Times.

"One of the proposed spending cuts (in the new budget proposed by President Bush) would make it harder for working families with children to receive food stamps, terminating aid for about 300,000 people. Another would deny child care assistance to about 300,000 children, again in low-income working families."

"It will proceed with the phaseout of two little-known tax provisions - originally put in place under the first President George Bush - that limit deductions and exemptions for high-income households."

"More than half of the benefits from this backdoor tax cut would go to people with incomes of more than a million dollars; 97 percent would go to people with incomes exceeding $200,000." -Paul Krugman, The New York Times, February 11, 2005

"February 2 was Groundhog Day and the State of the Union Address. It is an ironic juxtaposition: one involves a meaningless ritual in which
we look to a creature of little intelligence for prognostication and the other involves a groundhog."

SLAP!

 

"After a lot of yada, yada, doo, the answer is quite simply NONE. They get all of the breaks on the theory that they benevolently create jobs (yeah right!)."


I'm sure all the farmer's (let's not forget the farm subsidies being cut) who voted for them will be happy to get these "jobs"....I'm waiting for them to get outraged---after all they put them in office, but then again with no farms, maybe they can send their kids to fight "terror" for us all...that would be poetic justice in my eyes.

The Dem's better wake up and go to the people that this affects the most, get their quotes out on the airwaves...especially those that supported the shrub in the first place.

THE MONSTER STILL LIVES!

 

The head of the terrorist monster is the life of Osama bin-Laden. We have cut off many of the monster’s tentacles, but they grow back. We need to get the head of the bin-Laden Monster, so when other monsters attempt to come out of their caves, they might think twice. Until we get the bin-Laden Monster, all of the other monsters have hope, and hope is a dangerous thing for a terrorist monster to have.

This is something that the Bushies don't understand. Or maybe, because they let have already him slip through their hands at least once, it's just spin.

Stupid Quotes of the Day

 

"An idea to convene talks among the five countries (US, Japan, Russia, China and South Korea) excluding North Korea has emerged within the U.S. government,"

-Japanese newspaper Sankei Shimbun

 

That's a great idea! Let's talk amongst ourselves while North Korea makes nukes and thumbs their nose at the rest of the world.

When will the World realize that Kim Jong Il IS the World's most dangerous rogue leader and dispose of him before it's too late. Whether this maniac has nuclear weapons or not is of no consequence because he truly does seek them, he won't be satisfied until he has them, and, if threatened he will unquestionably use them.

If there was ever a dictator that needs to be removed, it is him. It might have been a good idea to rid the planet of Saddam Hussein (no matter how many times the reason changes), but it is a necessity to rid the world of Kim Jon g Il.
