Gas Tax Is Back – Shovel Ready Jobs Lie Returns

Gas Taxes

I never liked Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) as he’s a loud mouth RINO and a liar. Now I like him even less.

You see, Mr. Corker is now joined at the hip with two Marxists from the Democrat party – Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) in his zeal for a new gas tax now that private industry has succeeded in lowering the cost of a gallon of gasoline as well as the price of oil.

Politician generally create an environment that destroys jobs through the regulation and tax process. They rarely do anything that enhances the ability of private industry to create jobs, expand, create economy and increase profits which generally lead to reinvestment and more jobs.

Nancy Pelosi is so bold she doesn’t think the average consumer will even notice a hike in gas taxes or the price at the pump.

“If there’s ever going to be an opportunity to raise the gas tax, the time when gas prices are so low — oil prices are so low — is the time to do it,” she explained.

Your Federal government wishes to do for you what OPEC can’t. Competition makes the world go round and economies not politicians.

But wait, there is an excuse for higher gasoline taxes. Remember Obama’s shovel ready jobs, the one’s where hundreds of orange barrels show up blocking lanes to your highway with warning signs concerning worker safety? One problem is I have yet to see the workers or equipment.

Whoa’s me – the infrastructure is crumbling, the bridges are falling, the potholes are growing, airport runways are dangerous and need repair.

Mr. Corker adds that we are:

“…just stealing from future generations out of the general funds to pay for infrastructure because Congress is going to fund infrastructure but not in the appropriate way.”

Newsflash to Corker: you bastards have been stealing our money for decades, let’s examine social security and it’s so-called trust fund.

At 18.4 cents and $34 billion annually one would think there is plenty of money to go around so states can repair their “crumbling” infrastructures.” One major problem is this money is never devoted to just infrastructure, it finds it’s way into bankrupt projects like California’s high-speed railway which is setting records each day for overruns.

While the Marxist-in-Chief, Barack Obama, touts the fact he will veto any bill approving the XL Pipeline which will further lower gas prices and create thousands of jobs at zero taxpayer expense he wants $100 billion for infrastructure. Pelosi and Durbin are vehemently against the pipeline also.

One solution would be to use tax money more efficiently while not robbing from other sources to fund pet projects doomed to failure. Lower taxes and really watch the economy approve and the creation of jobs.

Politicians like to take credit for lower gas prices although they have nothing to do with this American success story while at the same time they plot to increase taxes which will destroy the goose laying the golden eggs.

Obama – Missing in Action – Again

Obama Missing In Action

It’s been fairly well documented that on the night of the Benghazi attacks on the American consulate leaving four Americans dead no one really knows where Barack Obama was, except for the ilk hiding the truth.

Once again Obama has been invisible, off the world stage after a major crisis where world leaders gathered in solidarity, including polar opposites Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

More than 40 heads of state showed up in France this past weekend to denounce the wave of terrorism that left 17 innocent people dead and others wounded. However, the country that symbolizes, or once did, the war on terror after 9/11 attacks in New York City went unrepresented.

By all accounts Obama and VP Biden had open schedules and certainly could have rearranged commitments to show solidarity against terrorism if they saw fit. John Kerry, presumed US Secretary of State was in India and thought the dust up is merely “quibling.”

“We have offered, from the first moment, our intel, our law enforcement and all of our efforts, and I really think that, you know, this is sort of quibbling a little bit,” Kerry told NBC News.

Not to worry, the US ambassador to France, Jane Hartley, receiving that position as a reward for raising more than $500,000 in campaign funds for Obama, made an appearance.

Spokes Idiots for the administration were full of excuses as well as other foreign objects of relative distaste such as security issues, too much distraction, all which didn’t seem to detract other leaders as well as record crowds.

One protester held a banner with Voltaire’s most famous line:

“I do not agree with what you say, but I will fight to the death to defend your right to say it.”

And even from the heart of Brooklyn, bastion for Obama supporters filmmaker Leo Herrera, 33, in front of the Park Slope Food Co-op said:

“It will have a chilling effect that America did not show up (at the Paris rally). This goes into the heart of what free speech is, so we should have a really visible reaction. I don’t think Obama sent any message, and that’s the problem.”

The message may be Obama’s distaste for Jews, his pro-Islam stance, his lack of concern over national security with his open borders, walking away from Iraq and Afghanistan, and over all lack of policy to protect the nation and fight terrorism.

John Boehner – Liar Extraordinaire

Boehner Spineless Hypocrite Liar

Since the 2014 mid-term elections John Boehner has cemented my belief that he is a pathological liar bent on keeping his power and running over anyone who may get in his way. And people like Rep. Nunes from California and Rep. King of New York talk like Stalin era Communists defending him.

“We need to get to the bottom of the guys who voted against [procedural motions], and we need to understand why they voted against that, and then we need to know why people voted against the speaker yesterday,” said Nunes. “I believe if you take on the leader and you lose, you face the consequences,” said King.

Nunes is reportedly drafting a resolution prohibiting members who vote against the speaker from chairing a subcommittee.

Let’s see, you vote for your representative of choice coming out of your home district but some jerk from California or New York or some other district outside of your own wants to punish your elected official because he/she disagrees with Boehner and wishes to defend their position, the one they campaigned on.

And look at the headlines coming out now:

Boehner Backing Away From Punishment for GOP Dissenters

Boehner Rethinks Retribution Against Dissenting Republican Committee Members

No, we don’t have to look to Democrats or Obama and his administration to find Marxism, Fascism, Communism, we only have to look at the Republican establishment to see that standing up for your principles will get you punished as well as your constituents. Forget the IRS, NSA, FBI, CIA – the GOP is full of liars who campaign as Conservatives then turn their ugly heads and reverse course to protect their power while lying to the American’s who voted them into a majority.

Boehner claims to be changing his tune while admitting punishment was being administered for not agreeing with his so-called leadership.

23 Conservatives wrote a letter to Boehner:

“It is unacceptable and disappointing to see that some conservatives are already being punished by you and your leadership team for disagreements over policy and the direction of the conference. This must end immediately.”

  1. Edwin Meese III, former attorney general for President Ronald Reagan
  2. David McIntosh, former member of Congress from Indiana
  3. Becky Norton Dunlop, former White House adviser to President Ronald Reagan
  4. L. Brent Bozell III, chairman of ForAmerica
  5. Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council
  6. Ken Cuccinelli, president of the Senate Conservatives Fund
  7. Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony List
  8. Colin A. Hanna, president of Let Freedom Ring
  9. Matt Kibbe, president of FreedomWorks
  10. David N. Bossie, president of Citizens United
  11. Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots
  12. Tim Wildmon, president of American Family Association
  13. William L. Walton, vice president, Council for National Policy
  14. William G. “Jerry” Boykin, retired U.S. Army general and executive VP, Family Research Council
  15. J. Kenneth Blackwell, chairman, Constitutional Congress
  16. T. Kenneth Cribb Jr., former domestic adviser, President Ronald Reagan
  17. Alfred S. Regnery, chairman, Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund
  18. Richard A. Viguerie, chairman, ConservativeHQ,com
  19. Andrew C. McCarthy, former federal prosecutor
  20. Frank J. Gaffney Jr., president and CEO, Center for Security Policy
  21. Allen Roth, president, Secure America Now
  22. Paul Caprio, director, Family PAC Federal
  23. Richard Manning, Americans for Limited Government

“We had a situation yesterday where we had to constitute the Rules Committee but because of some of the activities on the floor, two of our members weren’t put back on the committee immediately,” Boehner told reporters on Wednesday.

“I have not had a chance to talk to them, I have not had a chance to talk to our members. But this morning, I told the members the same thing I’m saying here. We’re going to have a family conversation, which we had this morning, about bringing our team together.”

Time will tell what Boehner does to reconcile differences among elected officials who disagree with him. Until then he remains a spineless, hypocritical, LIAR EXTRAORDINAIRE!
