Jeesh! It is freakin’ cold here and it’s blowing, snowing and drifting worse than my 403K under the Democrat Congress. Now that our Porky-Pig President pushed through the Porkulus-Democrat-Spending-Fiasco, what can be done now if anything? Bill O’Reilly suggests that we watch the spending closely and scream and holler if it goes the wrong way. My thought is, what can we do WHEN it goes the wrong way–he says to holler if it goes to ACORN–well billions ARE scheduled to go to ACORN already–how are we going to stop it? Besides, they need lots of money to plan out the cheating and lying that must be done in time for the next coronation.
Meanwhile, in Alaska, we see one of the few if any fiscally sound states with 1 billion dollars socked away for next year’s public education already.
….As we are watching California being sucked back in to the earth in terms of debt, we can learn some lessons from the Alaska story that the media undoubtedly has buried:
When oil prices were high and the state was bringing in a ton of cash, the State of Alaska didn’t spend all the money on new unsustainable programs. They didn’t, you know, try to give everybody on the planet free healthcare. They didn’t search everywhere for places to dump money while claiming, you know, they were the wealthiest country on Earth, they are the wealthiest state in the land, this will go on forever. They didn’t do it. What they did is they saved.
Does it take a rocket scientist to understand what Sarah Palin is able to do in the face of the biggest Democrat-created fiscal implosion this country has ever seen? The fact that she has been able to save and then calls for over 258 million more dollars to be cut from the budget is in direct opposite to the crazed spending of the Pelosi-Obama-Reid debacle (Is there any surprise that this spells POOR?).
Sarah is fiscally conservative, abhors spending unnecessarily, says what she means and means what she says, is the opposite of Washington’s business as usual, puts honesty and transparency above the “do what looks good” mentality of the Obama administration. She has values and morals and sticks by them–i.e. her right to life belief unlike Obama’s broken promises (it is barely 4 weeks in office and he’s already broken 7). For a list of all of B.O.’s promises so you can watch as the rest of them fall by the wayside:
