USA needs a sound direction defined by the Executive branch, Senate and House of Representatives. Our Economy depends on this. Presently, we have a liberal Congress, who feels they have the reins and consent of the people of the United States. The “Change” implemented may be what the far Left want, but it has not created confidence in the business climate. The recent CHANGES are directly influencing the downward spiral of JOBS. Yes, I agree Bush decisions in supporting an unfunded war are also part of the problem; but you need to wake up and smell the stuff you are asking the center Left and center Right to smell.
The present Congress is doing things the Far Left want, but not what the center Left and Center Right want. CHANGE seems to be inducing recession. I know the liberals will argue the opposite, but facts are facts. Our economy is stagnant. It is JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!
Congress is focusing on the wrong priorities and waving their hands on “Jobs Saved” versus “Jobs Created”. Do you think that if you wave your hands fast enough, we will forget about few jobs created? Let’s see, Unions saved; Cocaine induced monkey studies; and we can’t forget the census workers hired that made your Jobs Created numbers look good for several months. Do you honestly feel short term gloss helps our long term infrastructure? And look at the jobs created! Excuse me, but do you think saving Unions is the same as creating jobs? The reason Unions have difficulty is they are too expensive and have a Union Management that is only concerned of their power and retirement.
You can divert the discussion by creating false #1 priorities with arguments such as the NY mosque issue, border issues, health care, etc. But JOBS are #1. You are failing on JOBS. Congress, the President and the Financial Chief, you are failing on JOBS. You spend your time accusing each other, painting the conservatives with a “NO” paint brush, but your “CHANGE” paint brush is just as broke. Jobs are the first priority, and not union jobs or census workers or federal employees. None of those types of jobs help our long term infrastructure or national confidence. Those types of jobs are for controlling society direction and the people of our country.
We need a 2nd priority of a sound Financial proposal that includes Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac getting shut down and no more friggin loans to these two organizations. And who were the idiots that recently passed the non-approved funds to these two clown organizations? False arguments, such as the border resolution, mosque, health care do not supersede JOBS.
Jobs, Budget cuts and Financial resolution is the three most important needs. We need a sound policy where businesses feel confident to hire and develop new technology. We need Direction agreeable to the middle Left and middle Right. We need priorities to focus our direction. If you choose to be blind to this precarious situation, you WILL see the voting results in 3 months!
We have seen the total lack of experience with the Democrats in Congress since 2006, as they only know how to spend without regard. President Obama and his finance team has magnified that failure 10 fold. If the Republicans can not define a 10 point plan of Priorities to solve our national concerns, then what good are they? Senator McConnell, I heard nothing from you on 22 August. Your refusal to specify a 10 point plan is telling me you are more concerned about regaining your personal position of power over the success of the USA. We can vote independent, if you can not lay out a 10 point plan for our American success, and stick to it.
The recession does not care whether you are a liberal or conservative. Recession does not care about color or race or your position on politics. Yet the House and Senate seems intent on driving us into bankruptcy and socialism. Many of the liberals and conservatives are very good at pointing fingers; but most are not capable of solving problems. A good business person, when confronted with a serious problem, will analyze the problem objectively, and come to a decision of how best to solve the problem, and then implement the necessary changes to solve the problem, while monitoring to verify the results. Government uses knee jerk reaction, political screaming, and incomprehensibly implements the wrong solution, and never follows up to see if the money spent was what they guaranteed. Our House and Senate is composed of men and women, who throw temper tantrums; who voice terrible accusations in order to demagogue an issue rather than propose a solution; and who are arrogant in their presumption of authority. In many cases immature people and idealists run our government, when it should be center right and center left adults who are capable of proposing real solutions and negotiating to a mutual agreement. Mutual Agreement, by definition, means you sometimes give something of equal value to accomplish the greater good. Sometimes, both parties agree completely! If you can not negotiate, get out. If you refuse to listen to the center Left and center Right majority population, then people please vote out those Representatives and Senators, who refuse to work as a team! Congressional members gives excuses why they can’t move forward, and the excuse is always pointing at another person or group. And we keep voting these incompetents back in! When will these people start pointing their finger at themselves? Their refusal to work to a common center position is the reason we are in the financial mess we have.
The Direction and Priorities needs to be based on the center majority priorities, not the far left or far right. USA needs an objective Economic Advisor, such as Dr. Jeffery Sacks. We need an objective, independent Securities Advisor. Who?
I stoop to symbolism? Liberals and Conservatives, it is the Economy, Stupid. Liberals, you can not keep spending money. You must cut the budget across the board to pay only expenses we have taxes available to pay. No borrowed money! Conservatives, you can not cut taxes or keep taxes low unless you budget real dollars to maintain the expenses. We all must cut an equal amount of real expenses. Yes it is painful, but you are part of the problem, until you become part of the solution! No, you can not pass budgets based on borrowed money or bypass the budget with your Emergency Spending BS ruling. You already know how to do this in your families. Your Spouse at home, can balance your home budget. You do not walk through a “stupid door” when you go to the House or Senate, do you? So many dollars in, an equal amount or less dollars out. A 5th grader can figure this out! Stimulate business, cut expenses, balance the budget and get our national debt paid off in 15 years. I can hear the woosies now, crying because they just can not do what it takes. That is what our country is best doing – The impossible! If you don’t try, you can never achieve. Are you who refuse to cut expenses willing to choke the country to death just to prove your positions are more righteous?
In both liberal and conservative cases, we have to reduce spending and stop whining about someone being left out. We civilians are doing it now. We all lose equally if you cut across the board. Equal pain for all. No, stop whining about your special protections! We all lose equally. Cut expenses by 25% across the board, decrease Federal civilian manpower back to 2006 levels, and no you can not move people around to make it look as if you cut manpower. Get some courage in your arrogant self. Do your damn jobs. Nobody in the business sector would hire your sorry group of congressional and senatorial people, as many of you are incompetent and embarrass yourselves. Some of you yell and have tantrums like children. Some of you throw out such bad insults (a Democratic Representative from Florida is one recent example), you should have been thrown out for total lack of professional integrity. Some of you are quite good. Some of your staff are extremely good. But you have to stop with the 2000 page bullshit. Did you go into Congress to work as a team, or was your ulterior motive all about power and subterfuge. Get real people writing law and not the damn legal beagles. It is simple. Choose to work as a team; set 10 primary objectives to achieve, which are priority to the majority center, not the Far Left and Far Right and Big Business. Achieve those objectives by getting the incompetent leaders out of power, get the extremists out of the loop; stop pointing fingers; stop being divisive and stop saying/repeating divisive things. Start doing what you said you would do when you were first given the position. Stop allowing yourselves to be told how to vote by leaders. You are supposed to vote for your state population, not some biased, arrogant leader, which claims to know what is best for you. Your state population already indicated to you what they want and what they expect from you. Get out if you can not support their stated objectives!
Ultimately, it comes down to the Center Left and Center Right coming to a mutual agreement as to what our United States stands for. The right must separate itself from people, organizations representing the far Right; such as the KKK, xenophobes, etc. The Right must not allow Big Business to have power over your decisions to guide our country. The Left must separate itself from socialists, communists, progressives and Unions representing the Far Left. Union lobbyists, MOVE On, Big Business lobbyists, Lawyer lobby groups, Socialists and Communists have too much influence over our Senate and Congress, as well as our society direction. We are supposed to be liberals and conservatives; not socialists, communists or progressives; which is a variation of a socialist. The Center Majority has far more influence with votes, so why are our House Representatives and Senators listening primarily to the Far Left and Far Right. Decisions are a mutual agreement. The average Jane and Joe want common sense solutions, no bickering and good leadership. We want this from our Liberal Left and our Conservative Right – all the time! We do not want pointing fingers!
