Obama’s Buying My Chicken Coop

It comes as little surprise to me that, precisely as I predicted, Obama’s reaction to our crashing economy is to add another trillion+ in national debt by giving us another “stimulus package”.  In fact, so eager is he to further sink our economy that he can’t even wait until he’s sworn in.  How any sane person can believe these packages are a good idea is beyond me.  It’s like giving a drowning person a brick – it gives him something to hold onto, but it sends him to the bottom that much faster.  Click on the link below for real, genuine ideas to save the economy:

But until we get a president with a clue, I’ll take my check, and I’ll let Obama buy me a chicken coop.  We’re designing it right now, and planning the breeds of chickens to buy through www.mypetchicken.com Besides the standard-sized egglayers, we’re getting a few Silkie Bantams.  These chickens are an amazingly bizarre breed with a history – they were brought over from China by Marco Polo.

And they are so cute.  I think they look like miniature gryphons.

Real eggs, as opposed to those sickly and tasteless store-bought imitations, bug and slug control, free manure for my garden, and affectionate new pets that love to lap-sit and snuggle – you can’t deny that chickens are awesome.

So good luck to you, Mr. Obama.  Thanks for the hen house, and it’ll be interesting to see what happens once everyone realizes you’re already begun breaking your campaign promises, before you’re even in office.  That has to be some kind of record.

Change.  Remember that word, Mr. Obama?  Change means doing something different, not just to just keeping repeating the previous administration’s mistakes.  At least in my back yard, though, the results of your “stimulus” will be crap that’s actually beneficial to my garden.

Things I am Happy about at this Moment…

1) A new season of Chad Vader begins February 1st!!!!

If you don’t know who or what Chad Vader is, go to this link and be educated. Truly, Chad Vader is one of the marvels of YouTube.

2) They’ve chosen a new Doctor, and it’s no one I hate. It’s actually no one I know either, but that’s a good thing, as I am able to come into this relationship with no prior baggage. He’s young, yes, but I’ve watched this interview with him, and I’ve seen a few moments of Doctor-ness in him. He’s certainly got offbeat looks. I like that in a British actor.

However, I still grieve the passing of the 10th Doctor.

3) The new season of Lost begins in a few days, and as I’ve just had a marathon viewing of the last season on DVD, I’m primed and ready. Time travel and disappearing islands and many other things I may never understand, yay!

4) My steampunk corset is half done. And I mean literally half done. Since it laces up the front and back, when it’s unlaced, it’s in two separate pieces. One side is completed, the other half still needs its embroidery, which I’m putting off, because the first half wasn’t all that fun to embroider. I tried a new embroidery stitch, and I’m sorta regretting it. But yay – half of it looks gorgeous!

5) I’ve sold 3 steampunk penguins this month!

6) It looks like Obama plans to pay for my chicken coop I’m building this Spring. More on this later.

7) And now I’m going to watch a Jane Austen film on tv.

Don’t Blame Me…

It won’t be long before I’ll be able to say “Don’t blame me, I voted for Baldwin”. Between McCain and Obama, I was hoping Obama would get it, simply so that people might finally come to understand that it wasn’t only Bush and the Republicans that have caused our country to get into such a mess. The difference between McCain and Obama is literally skin deep – there’s no discernible difference when it comes to their foreign policy, morals, or their financial plans for America. And once everyone sees for themselves that Obama’s “change” is only about power for himself, not power for the people, we’ll hopefully be able to get some real change started.

Let’s start with bringing all of our troops home from everywhere, closing our borders to everyone but legal immigrants, and denying all welfare and benefits to those still here illegally. Let’s restore the value of our money and stop allowing the federal government to tamper with aspects of our lives that they have no right to mess with. Let’s return to the Constitution as written, rather than being forced to live by the ‘interpretation’ of a handful of judges.

Let’s start with getting rid of illegal income taxes by dissolving the IRS, and let’s go back to being a prosperous nation! Did you know that none of the below taxes existed 100 years ago?

Accounts Receivable Tax

Building Permit Tax

CDL License Tax

Cigarette Tax

Dog License Tax

Corporate Income Tax

Federal Income Tax

Federal Unemployment Tax (FUTA)

Fishing License Tax

Food License Tax

Fuel Permit Tax

Gasoline Tax

Hunting License Tax

Inheritance Tax

Inventory Tax

IRS Interest Charges (tax on top of tax)

IRS Penalties (more tax on top of tax)

Liquor Tax

Luxury Tax

Marriage License Tax

Medicare Tax

Property Tax

Real Estate Tax

Service Charge Taxes

Social Security Tax

Road Usage Tax (truckers)

Sales Taxes

Recreational Vehicle Tax

School Tax

State Income Tax

State Unemployment Tax (SUTA)

Telephone Federal Excise Tax

Telephone Federal Universal Service Fee Tax

Telephone Federal, State, and Local Surcharge Tax

Telephone Recurring and Non-recurring Charges Tax

Telephone State and Local Tax

Telephone Usage Charge Tax

Utility Tax

Vehicle License Registration Tax

Vehicle Sales Tax

Watercraft Registration Tax

Well Permit Tax

Workers Compensation Tax

Not ONE of these taxes existed 100 years ago…and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, we had the largest middle class in the world. So what went wrong?

We continued to elect men like Obama and McCain, that’s why. We elected men whose only solution to debt was to borrow more and give out ‘stimulus packages’. We elected men whose reaction to families living from paycheck to paycheck was to raise taxes and create ever more types of taxes. We elected men whose idea of foreign policy was to completely ignore the command of the Founding Fathers and continue to interfere with and police the governments of other countries. We elected men whose idea of solving the illegal immigration crisis was to issue amnesties and to send our border patrol to Iraq.

According to a recent poll 47% of Americans “was considering” voting third party, and just in my own hometown it seemed like around 47% of people I spoke to said that they wanted to vote third party, but they “didn’t want to waste their vote”, because “there’s no chance” that a third party candidate would win. How cowardly is that? History is packed with instances of events occurring that had “absolutely no chance” of succeeding…but they succeeded in spite of the odds, because men were brave (and desperate) enough to do what they believed right and necessary despite what anyone else said.

How desperate will America have to become before Americans will regain their courage and do what they believe to be right? I think, in the coming months, we’ll have a chance to find out.

CAN A NEW PARTY WIN?

HISTORY SAYS “YES” – The Republican Party was itself a “third party” in 1854 when it was founded. in 1856 it was defeated with John C. Fremont as its first presidential candidate. Just four years later, however,the Republicans defeated the incumbent party, the Whigs, running a man named Abraham Lincoln. In a four-way race, Lincoln won the electoral college vote and the presidency despite not being on the ballot in nine states and receiving only 38% of the popular vote (by comparison, Bill Clinton was elected president in 1992 with 43% of the popular vote).

VOTERS SAY “YES” – Surveys show a steady increase in the public’s desire for a third party. A May 8, 2007 Rasmussen survey found that fifty-eight percent (58%) of Americans say it would be good for the U.S. to have a truly competitive third political party. An April 27,2006 Rasmussen research poll indicates that a third party presidential candidate emphasizing border security would tie a democrat candidate and defeat a republican. In a race with more than three candidates, one third of the vote can mean victory. Constitution Party candidates were elected to partisan offices for the first time in 2006, including Montana State Representative Rick Jore.
