Where’s the Budget, Obama? Show me the Budget!

Posted: April 30, 2011 by thesundowner in Uncategorized

Many of us who watch movies remember the 1996 romantic comedy-drama film titled Jerry Maguire.

Jerry Maguire — played by Tom Cruise — is a stressed-out sports agent who later suffers a nervous breakdown as a result of a guilty conscience, and eventually writes a mission statement about perceived dishonesty in the sports management business. (If this sounds similar to the Contract With America, it is purely unintentional…)

He rewrites the Mission Statement at SMI and how he believes the sports management business should be operated. He distributes copies of it to his co-workers, entitled “The Things We Think and Do Not Say: The Future of Our Business”. His co-workers are touched by his honesty and greet him with applause, but the management don’t have the same sense of excitement as their subordinates, and they send Bob Sugar (Jay Mohr), Maguire’s protégé, to fire him.

Well, things don’t go so well, so Jerry and Bob devise a plan to call all of Jerry’s clients and convince them not to hire the services of the competitors. Jerry speaks to Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Rod Tidwell (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), one of his clients who is disgruntled with his contract. Tidwell tests Jerry’s resolve through a very long telephone conversation, which culminates in the famed “” scene.

Meanwhile, Bob Sugar secures most of Jerry’s previous clients and even brings on another superstar football prospect expected to be #1 in the NFL Draft.

Now, we have the Democrats in Washington kicking into full campaign mode (when have they ever kicked OUT of campaign mode?), attacking Republican Budget Chair Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) plan to help end our government’s spending binge and help create a better environment for job creation in America.

But whose budget is best for America–President Obama’s or Congressman Paul Ryan’s?

Well, this is where the problem is: where is Obama’s budget?

So far, we haven’t seen one, and what “appears” to be a budget (on the surface) has yet to appeal to the public like Maguires new mission statement.

Should our government spend money we don’t have? Or, should it tighten its belt like the rest of us?

It’s ultimately your decision, and if you don’t like the way things are going in D.C. nowadays, you can do something about it come November 2012: vote Obama out of office.

Give him the “heave-ho.”

Tell him, in words that Donald Trump is so noted for: “You’re fired!”

If you want jobs to come back, then you need to know that Washington can’t create jobs. Only achievers, businesses, and those gawd awful rich people (and a few “evil” oil companies) are the only ones who can create jobs. The majority of jobs in the country are created by small businesses — “mom and pop” shops and entrepreneurs.

Congressman Ryan has proposed a budget that cuts $6.2 trillion in spending over the next 10 years, helping the private sector to create jobs today and putting America on a path to pay off our national debt. This plan contains tax code reforms that will grow our economy while protecting critical health and retirement programs for future generations.

And contrary to the lies of the Liberal Marxists in the Democrat Party, they won’t be putting Grandma out on the street and they’re not going to mess with Medicare.

When are you Democrat Kool-Aid drinkers going to realize that Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Obama are playing you like a Georgia fiddle, making you do the Plantation Cha-Cha?

Meanwhile, the President presented Congress with a budget that looks like the recent forgery he gave us for his birth certificate. It fails to answer a lot of questions, and it fails to address the drivers of our debt while raising taxes by $1.5 trillion, a surefire recipe for destroying jobs in America.

The Democrats’ budget calls for more “stimulus” spending, more taxing and more borrowing — all of which will make it harder for the private sector to create jobs.

How does is make it harder for private sector to create jobs? Because when the private sector see the tax hikes, they just take their jobs somewhere else… like China or India… or Mexico.

So you decide.

Does Obama have a legitimate budget for America?

To date… no.

Do the Republicans have a better solution?


Is it perfect? No. Nothing is. But it’s a far cry better than stealing more money out of your pocket to give to ne’er-do-wells who won’t get off their asses and become productive.

The national debt has now surpassed $14.2 trillion and will soon eclipse the size of our entire economy. The President and House Republicans have starkly different visions on how to address this looming debt crisis: higher vs. lower taxes, more spending or less, an empowered Washington vs. a free people.

The choice is yours. Do you want to live “for the day?” Or do you want to leave something of value to your children and grandchildren? You can make America great again and let your voice be heard in the next election. But you can also let your voice be heard today by calling your Congressman or Congresswoman, and your Senators and let them know your concerns.

Or you can sit back and be a part of the Silent Majority and let Obama and his Marxist cronies put the shaft to you.

Drafting men over 50

Posted: April 27, 2011 by thesundowner in Uncategorized

I am over 50 and the Armed Forces thinks I’m too old to track down terrorists. You can’t be older than 42 to join the military. They’ve got the whole thing ass-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year olds off to fight, they ought to take us old guys. You shouldn’t be able to join a military unit until you’re at least 35.

For starters: Researchers say 18-year-olds think about sex every 10 seconds. Old guys only think about sex a couple of times a day, leaving us more than 28,000 additional seconds per day to concentrate on the enemy.

Young guys haven’t lived long enough to be cranky, and a cranky soldier is a dangerous soldier. ‘My back hurts! I can’t sleep, I’m tired and hungry’ We are impatient and maybe letting us kill some asshole that desperately deserves it will make us feel better and shut us up for a while.

An 18-year-old doesn’t even like to get up before 10 a..m. Old guys always get up early to pee so what the hell. Besides, like I said, ‘I’m tired and can’t sleep and since I’m already up, I may as well be up killing some fanatical son-of-a-bitch.

If captured we couldn’t spill the beans because we’d forget where we put them. In fact, name, rank, and serial number would be a real brainteaser.

Boot camp would be easier for old guys.. We’re used to getting screamed and yelled at and we’re used to soft food. We’ve also developed an appreciation for guns. We’ve been using them for years as an excuse to get out of the house.

They could lighten up on the obstacle course however. I’ve been in combat and didn’t see a single 20-foot wall with rope hanging over the side, nor did I ever do any pushups after completing basic training.

Actually, the running part is kind of a waste of energy, too. I’ve never seen anyone outrun a bullet.

An 18-year-old has the whole world ahead of him. He’s still learning to shave, to start up a conversation with a pretty girl. He still hasn’t figured out that a baseball cap has a brim to shade his eyes, not the back of his head.

These are all great reasons to keep our kids at home to learn a little more about life before sending them off into harm’s way.

Let us old guys track down those dirty rotten coward muslim terrorists. The last thing an enemy would want to see is a couple of million pissed off old farts with attitudes and automatic weapons who know that their best years are already behind them.

How about recruiting women over 50! In menopause! You think Men have attitudes! Ohhhhhh my God!

If nothing else, put them on border patrol… they’ll have it secured the first night! (and we won’t have to hear “Press 1 for English” anymore).

(Share this with all of your senior friends…)

Quote terrorist-turned-professor Bill Ayers:

“Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon. The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them.”

Then say: “Great prose style. You can see why his next book, Dreams from My Father, sold so well…”

Always refer to greenies like Al Gore, Carol Browner, and Ed Begley Jr. as “Watermelons” – green on the outside, red on the inside.
