Some Things to Think About--- (and Added Wednesday)

Janet Napolitano and the Jackson County Commission have something in common:


This morning we heard that one Border Agent was killed and one was injured while in Mexico as part of their job with their diplomatic papers and badges in order. After being identified apparently a drug cartel member had a problem with them. And guess what? Janet extended the sympathies of herself and the country and said they would be looking for those responsible.

It took her two years to get used to using the term Terrorist--remember when the Obama administration would only recognize an "overseas contingency operation?" How long will it take her to stop telling us that the borders are in the best shape they have ever been? Unbelievable!

Same thing with Jackson County. Every dog now gets a free bite as long as the owner can show Homeowners Liability insurance in the amount of $100,000. Then a dog gets tagged with being "aggressive, etc." and restrictions are put on the owner. Well, duh, that is just not going to cut it. Little kids need protection, not get their doctor bills paid! And we, with the larger brains, are supposed to be able to think about how to do it. Com'on. Give us a break.

1) So the new Obama budget is out. $3.71 trillion. Please don't hold me to this, but back when I was keeping track of these numbers more closely (in the 1998 to 2004 time frame) the budget stayed at "around" $2 trillion with the GNP at "around" $20 trillion. Some quick and dirty arithmetic would indicate about a 1 to 10 ratio.

And what is the GNP today? I haven't researched this number but I have a strong feeling that our GNP is not over $37 trillion. So how much of a spending increase in the last two years did it take for our President to be able to look like the Great Compromiser rather than a shyster horse trader? This leads to--

2) Oprah--the gal who is on the feminine side of the "controllers" along with Michelle wants us to play nice and respect the President because he holds the title. Well, folks, Respect begets respect. Certainly he doesn't respect the electorate if he is constantly trying to fool, or make fools of, us. We can respect the office of the President, but respecting a guy who lies on a constant basis as far as abortion is concerned (yes, it's back in the Obamacare bill) is getting a "twofer" -- two bad acts for the price of one.

3) All of the left wing's push toward Green Power is also lacking in honesty. Just think. If we had nothing but electric cars and didn't need a drop of oil except for heating and incidentals don't you wonder what the costs of operation might be? How about the fact that all that Lithium needed for batteries presently comes from China. They have 30% of the world's supply, but presently actually supply 95% of the world's needs. Australia has some, California has some, and the rest of the supply is extremely difficult and expensive to get.

Have you heard of supply and demand? Given that the batteries in my son's all electric car are projected to last 10 years at which time if they are replaced, the bill will be $10,000. Do you even want to go there? And will the subsidies still be in place? Or will we all be scrambling to pay our energy bills. Hmmmmm...

I'm thinking this is probably just the tip of the iceberg and we don't want to go into information overload today, but my husband thinks we are fat, dumb and happy and waiting for the other shoe to drop. What do you think?

God bless...
Need Him more every day--
