Ukraine / Egypt – Who’s Right?

Both the Ukraine & Egypt had democratically elected governments until popular anti-establishment uprisings.
While mainly localized to Kiev & Cairo these uprisings gained enough support from opposition elements within the government & military, that the sitting elected officials were removed from power.

If this happened in Washington or London there would be total anarchy yet both the US & British governments support the new regimes either officially or unofficially.
When Russia made the citizens of Crimea vote on the leadership they wanted this was condemned by the western governments.

I say take to the streets & lets get some good leadership, its obviously the new way to get the government you want.

Illinois

 

There are more people on Welfare in Illinois than there are people working.

Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. averaging $110,000/year.

Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. You can’t blame that on republicans because there aren’t any.

 Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what?

Be sure to read till the end. I’ve never heard it explained better.

Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago?

Body count: In the last six months 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago.
221 killed in Iraq AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.

 

Here’s the Chicago chain of command:

 

  •  President: Barack Hussein Obama
  •  Senator: Dick Durbin
  •  Former House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr.
  •  Governor: Pat Quinn
  •  House leader: Mike Madigan
  •  Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike)
  •  Mayor: Rahm Emanuel
  •  The leadership in Illinois – all Democrats.
  •  Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago.
  •  Of course, they’re all blaming each other.
  •  Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!
  •  Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country. Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!
  •  State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country. Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!
  •  Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!
  •  This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. And he is going to ‘fix’ Washington politics for us???
  •  George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in the big house.
  •  Of course he was replaced by Rob Blajegovitch who is…that’s right, also in the big house.
  •  And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned a couple of weeks ago. That is because he is fighting being sent to…that’s right, the big house.
  •  The Land of Lincoln, where our governors make our license plates.

But you know what?

As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does.

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him; better take a closer look at the American Indian.”

The Good Fiscal Cliff

You won’t hear any pundits saying that falling over the fiscal cliff is “Good News” but why not?

The USA needs to stop spending too much!

Previously to kick the reverential can down the road the Republicans And Democrats agreed to spending cuts and tax raises that unless you are a conspiracy theorist  neither side wanted.

Now a case could be made that this is the easiest way to raise taxes without breaking a promise to Grover Norquist or cut spending without offending any special interests, but if we are to believe the rhetoric neither side wants this to happen.

As an average working tax paying citizen falling over the fiscal cliff is THE BEST thing that can happen.

America simply cannot afford to spend money it doesn’t have so cutting benefits and special interest programs is essential. Don’t we teach our own children to save for things they want? Quite simply if you cannot afford it you cannot have it!

On the other hand your representatives should be answerable to you not Grover Norquist,  if raising taxes is the right thing to do to pay your creditors or pay down the debt then it needs raising.

It seems to me the fiscal cliff burns both sides so for once we actually get a compromise, yes its going to smart a little but everyone needs to tighten their belts if the USA is to reclaim the #1 spot.

America needs to work but not for tax dollars, government generated jobs are “temporary jobs” any future stimulus spending should encourage America to invest in the future of America with new equipment, technology & jobs.

So Simoncez

Politicians Playing Solitaire

Politicians Playing Solitaire

Politicians Playing Solitaire House Minority Leader  Lawrence F. Cafero Jr., R-Norwalk,  pictured standing, far right, speaks while  colleagues Rep. Barbara Lambert, D-Milford and  Rep. Jack F. Hennessy, D-Bridgeport, play  solitaire Monday night as the House convened to  vote on a  new budget. (AP)

The guy  sitting in the row in front of these two….he’s  on Facebook, and the guy behind Hennessy is  checking out the baseball  scores.

These are the folks that  couldn’t get the budget out by Oct. 1, and are  about to control your health care, cap and  trade, and the list goes on and  on.

Should  we buy them larger screen computers – or  – a ticket home,  permanently?

Internet Marketing 101

First I would like to point out I am not a self proclaimed internet marketing guru.

I have been marketing online for about 5 years and am not driving around in Ferrari’s and Lamborghini’s so by “Guru” standards I am a failure 🙂

Hype

The Internet Marketing Arena is rife with false promises but if you do know your way around a computer you can make a decent living.

Scalability is the key to success if it works do more of it if it doesn’t and you are sure you have exhausted all angles move on.

One thing is for sure there is no push button software that you are going to be able to buy for $37 that will make you a millionaire.

Regardless of the hype and faked testimonials nothing will replace careful planning and hard work.

Still Interested?

If you do have an interest in pursuing online opportunities I will happily provide a few pointers on how to get started in this section, yes i will use affiliate links when recommending products after all i am a marketer, however what i won’t do is  recommend products i haven’t used or don’t like.
Take my word for it or not but there are very few marketers who follow that guideline.

Check back frequently I will be posting free tips as well as product reviews on a regular basis.

Multiculturalism

As an Englishman by birth I don’t have allot of sympathy for the French but this video is scary.

Sympathy or not it just goes to show how uncontrolled socialism is dangerous, this could very easily be happening in a city near you!

Land of the Free?

USA at risk of loosing Land Of The Free Title!

Nanny State Politics and the desire to make a difference by overzealous politicians are creating a

“no do” rather than “can do” nation.

Don’t get me wrong this is not a problem solely confined to the USA the “Nanny State” is alive and flourishing all over Europe as well.

So Just What is a Nanny State?

Given the correct information and advice most adults would prefer to make their own decisions, unfortunately politicians for a variety of reasons think they know better and legislate to restrict choice.

In some instances they may well be correct but not at the cost of social liberty what the West needs is LESS LAWS and LESS TAXES not more.

Higher Taxation through Fines

For Governments to regulate your life they need more and more money to finance this growing numbers of governing bodies, and if they can’t get it via taxation they get it in fines.

What are red light and speeding cameras? Road Safety Measures or Indirect Taxation? Why do police hide behind hedges and billboards, not in high accident areas but in areas with low posted speed limits. THEY want your money!

Do you want choice or regulation?

I have no intention of arguing that smoking is nothing but bad for you but i will stand up for peoples right to smoke if they so choose, New York has lost the plot, what are they really trying to do –

  • Stop smokers
  • Collect fines
  • Generate Votes

Smoking is Legal, they collect a huge amount of tax / pack yet they still want to impose their authority further and or think that by pandering to the extreme anti smokers they will generate votes?  Whatever the motivation they are dictating what you can do and where you can do it. That is not Freedom!

Don’t think it stops at smokers

Do you buy and eat food? If you do then the government is already dictating what you can eat, it is all done in the name of good health and healthy eating but if you are like me you would prefer to be educated and vote with your wallet than be dictated to or taxed for eating the wrong thing.

Freedom is about education and making choices

Western governments, are removing your right to choose, but do they legislate to protect or to control?

Make up your own mind while you can and make sure your voice is heard by actively participating and voting
