Revenue Neutral: A Liarspalooza

Revenue Neutral is not Congress cutting spending.

Revenue Neutral is not Congress capping spending..

Revenue Neutral will not Make Government Small Again.

Revenue Neutral is not about the Proper Role of Government

Revenue Neutral is not Tax Reform.

Revenue Neutral is about Control. It is about some in Congress wanting to maintain control of your hard earned money by redistributing it to their favorite projects and agendas and people. Instead of living on a budget or scrapping redundant or useless or wasteful or unconstitutional programs, ones that infringe upon unalienable rights, some in Congress want to keep spending your money without consequence, without conscience, and without just cause. 

Seriously Republicans, get a grip on it and stand for something.

You said. We believed you. We Won.

Now go and win some more. Take Back America! 

Full Repeal. No Bailouts. No Excuses. Cut, Cap, and Balance that stinkin’ budget already. Sheesh.

A Stinkin’ CR and Full Repeal Debate

The Continuing Resolution is all about extending the federal discretionary funds after April 28, 2017. Honestly, Congress has the Power of the Purse so with the threat of a Government Shutdown by the Democrats I say WHO CARES? 

“They” claim Shutdown Government. Nope. No. No it is not a shutdown. It is a slowdown, a partial shutdown that keeps Congress from spending money but funds the military and other critical organizations within government. There have been slowdowns in the last several years and hey, I am all good with the slowing down of D.C. nonsense.   (Read: Can the House Avoid a Government Shutdown?)

This piece by Rachel Bovard is interesting: Shunning the Shutdown.  Beware the OMNIBUS spending bill! (Yes, the thought of the Omnibus bill makes me want to spit!) Remember this in 2014? 

I have to put this video in from PragerU because it is important to #FrameTheDebate when it comes to budgeting and spending issues.

Now on to the #FullRepeal battle and other issues I wish my congressman, Bill Posey,  would go on record with, filled with solutions like Senator Mike Lee’s video below:

Living on the Dole is not Welfare

The word welfare, properly defined means faring well as in going or getting along well, succeeding well, doing well. 

Dole, properly defined, means an allotted share, a grant, a handout, a portioned amount therefore living on the dole is not the same as faring well.

Notice I specifically stated Living on the Dole. Again, the keyword being l-i-v-i-n-g on the alloted share-grant-handout-proportioned amount. Yeah, I do not count that as thriving or succeeding or doing well as in self-sufficiency. 

Case in Point: “Fable of the Gullible Gull,” Reader’s Digest, Oct. 1950, p. 32.

“In our friendly neighbor city of St. Augustine great flocks of sea gulls are starving amid plenty. Fishing is still good, but the gulls don’t know how to fish. For generations they have depended on the shrimp fleet to toss them scraps from the nets. Now the fleet has moved. …

“The shrimpers had created a Welfare State for the … sea gulls. The big birds never bothered to learn how to fish for themselves and they never taught their children to fish. Instead they led their little ones to the shrimp nets.

“Now the sea gulls, the fine free birds that almost symbolize liberty itself, are starving to death because they gave in to the ‘something for nothing’ lure! They sacrificed their independence for a handout.

“A lot of people are like that, too. They see nothing wrong in picking delectable scraps from the tax nets of the U.S. Government’s ‘shrimp fleet.’ But what will happen when the Government runs out of goods? What about our children of generations to come?

“Let’s not be gullible gulls. We … must preserve our talents of self-sufficiency, our genius for creating things for ourselves, our sense of thrift and our true love of independence.” 

Thus we see why #FullRepeal and so getting rid of many other addictive government programs is of paramount concern to those who work for what they have.

Today, and every day,  Congress has the Power to stop a nation from living on the dole. Basta. Congress simply needs to stop stalling, stop fretting over low-info voters, and trust the voters who put them into office to #ReclaimAmerica.

Lame Duck, Elections, Mike Needham

Mike Needham has a great Op-Ed Open Letter in response to a recent Wall Street Journal Op-Ed. Mike is my hero when it comes to speaking plainly, fairly, and pointedly.

My thoughts on his op-ed?

“but they are appear eager to dismiss its root causes.” ~ Yes. The Lame Duck Continuing Resolution through December 8th is an example. The excessive increasing of the National Debt is an example. The insane Drafting of Women is an example.

And how is Paul Ryan any different than his predecessor, John Boehner, as an example? (1)

What has Mitch McConnell offered the American people and is he as good as his word? (2)

“Failing to deliver promised electoral consequences will have consequences” said Lester Jackson.(3)

As a member of Heritage Foundation, having used their research in conjunction with other think tank ideas, I cautiously watched the Heritage Action (HAction) program unfold. I wanted to see how things were going work, how consistent HAction was going to be, what it would become.  It did not take me long to appreciate the focused educational approach HAction takes in promoting and framing debates for Constitutional centered ideas. Mike Needham exceeded my expectations as CEO. 

Remember when Mike said: 

Here we are in 2016 and Mike is still correct. And he is right today when he talks about the Opportunity for All: Favoritism to None Solutions that matter most, fair solutions that any candidate, especially Donald Trump, should be focused upon if serious about winning this election and serving as President of the United States.

And then educate your House and Senate members. #MakeDCListen

A few Lame Duck Issues: 

Another Layer of Freakspeak: Task Forces

One of my favorites to follow on Twitter is Dean Clancy. When I saw his post and clicked the Paul Ryan link I thought my head would pop off as I shouted, “What is this task force nonsense?”

Seriously Speaker Ryan? Task Forces? Are you the Big Giant head sending a message of delay, destroy, and deter the Conservative agenda?

Dude, You are so Boehnered. Seriously, after that pathetic opening at the Conservative Policy Summit 2016 where you preached capitulation so we can all sit down together and move forward with the Progressive agenda, do you think anyone is fooled by your Dilbert-Boss approach to making it happen?

Task Forces? Seriously? Another layer on the dung heap?

1) CUT, CAP, AND BALANCE THE BUDGET. Basta!

How do you do that?

CLEAN THE BARN DUDE! Haul out the dung heap of a mess that you, Speaker Ryan, and Boehner created in 2015 with the Bipartisan Budget Act. Go back to the 2011 Budget Control Act, at least, and put your House in order from that point of reference.

2) STOP RAMMING LEGISLATION THROUGH CONGRESS IN A DUNG HEAP.

How do you do that?

STOP BEING A PELOSIVICH-BOEHNERITE. Stop making everything a crisis like a Progressive. Stop. Just take one issue, one reform, at a time. Clean your stall first and then one stall at a time thereafter. Clean it. Clean it well. You can start with Defunding Obamacare so it makes it easier to get rid of it in 2017.

Take back the #PowerOfThePurse line item at a time. You don’t need no stinkin’ task force to tell you that.

3) OPEN DEBATES AND DISCUSSIONS OF IDEAS ON THE FLOOR.

How do you do that?

STOP WASTING TIME AND MONEY ON TASK FORCES. It used to be the GOP had a platform. They hammered it out during election cycles and WE, The People, voted on who we send to make the changes in Washington DC.

WE, not YOU, want things hammered out with Public Oversight and that is why we keep electing more Conservatives to Congress so you listen to WE, the People not task forces.

Finally – It is all about #ReclaimAmerica and Article 1. It would appear you skipped that #A1P event the other day so I am posting it here for your convenience. You can watch and learn on your own time to save people from wallowing through another stinkin’ task force meeting.

There you go Mr. Speaker. Task Force fait accompli.
