Are you happy with anything in Washington D.C.?

The president wants to create jobs…using taxpayer dollars. We are in debt and he wants to drive us further in debt. He proposes creating jobs that will be 100% funded from taxpayers pockets. That’s what infrastructural jobs are. They probably need to be done, but we need to create jobs that will increase the tax base, and we don’t need to raise taxes to do it. My idea is to stop giving our jobs away to other countries. You don’t count as a U.S. company if the only citizens making money are the board of directors. Even many foreign car companies are making cars in the U.S., while U.S. manufacturers are having the parts and/or the cars, made in other countries. Not only that, Chrysler is now Fiat and GM is making more cars in China. The jobs would come back if other countries were required to follow our patent laws and our quality control rules. There is no quality control anymore (except for those who make stuff here). China adds lead to stuff that they sell to us, and the U.S. Government says “Bad China, don’t do that again or you’ll have a time-out”, but the time-out never comes. It’s like the parents in the U.S. that use a time-out as a punishment, and don’t enforce it.
Also, even Ronald Reagan could see how useless it was that the rich weren’t paying their fair share. I’m not saying “raise taxes for the rich”. I’m saying that the loopholes and deductions need to come under control. The first thing that you can do is to make a law that the rich cannot pay less taxes than someone making minimum wage at a full-time job. Millions of dollars would begin to pour into the government coffers. I believe that would be a 10% tax on all rich people’s wages to match the underpaid tax percentage.
Next, can you blame the people that are protesting Wall Street when Wall Street is a major part of our countries problems (along with the banks, oil companies, and U.S. Government)? And the airlines have been milking people for years while the many airline unions dig deeper. As far as the airlines go, the terrorists can’t kill as many people in one fatal swoop if we cut out the major airlines fringe stops and start using trains again. It takes less than an hour to get to Minneapolis from Fargo if you are flying, but when you add the extra hour and a half that you need to be at the airport before the flight, layovers, and the two-to-three times the price of Minneapolis to anywhere else, you can drive for hundreds, maybe thousands less if it is less than a month notice and the time will be about the same to get to your first flight in the cities. You can also save on the charges for everything that you do while on the plane. A train will take longer, but you don’t have to drive, they can get you to the airport, it’s much more relaxing (everyone can sleep without their knees being ripped off by the increasingly tight spaces), and you can get up and walk around and look outside without peeking through a porthole. If a train crashes, you don’t have far to the ground from where you sit. Even if the landing gear collapse, you are farther from the ground than you would be on a train.
Back on task. When is the last time that you heard someone with a Harvard degree, actually say something intelligent? I can’t even remember that, and I’m no genius. They go to school with the expectation that they will be highly regarded as some kind of special, educated whiz, so they expect to start at the top. Fools start them at the top and eventually watch their company crash because of all of the bad ideas that they implement. The best advertising for any company is the happy and content employee, not the stuck-up fool with his head stuck up someones…you know what I mean. Also, employees that move up the ladder have more incentive to work hard for their employer. A stagnant employee who stays at the bottom will never have a reason to work hard because they know that they are going nowhere. At least employees who have medical benefits, are more likely to try harder to keep their job than ones who don’t have any benefits at all, because they need to keep their families healthy, and the health care business is right up there with Wall Street. Don’t let me get started on that. I need to hold back for another time and rant.
In conclusion, Get the Democrats, Republicans, and Tea-Partiers out of office because they don’t really know what they are doing, and they don’t even make suggestions. They re-word the problem and blame the other parties for the mess that we are in. It’s time for them to say what they stand for, and actually give some ideas of how to fix our country before they finish destroying it.
