According to the Rasmussen Poll, 9% of Americans think that the current CONgress is doing a good to great job. That means that 81% of Americans think that the current CONgress is doing a fair to poor job. Most of you know that I don't hold polls in high esteem when it comes to elections, especially the current presidential elections. However, it is painfully obvious to all that the 110th CONgress has been a pathetic one from the beginning primarily because the current crop of leadership and majority lied to get into office in the first place. (Robert has previously reported on this data here)(blog no longer available)
Now, having said all of the above, what is so perplexing is this. If you ask folks, as we did in my latest trek through Michigan on the Man On The Street Campaign we conducted, what they thought of the CONgress Critters, the vast majority said they would vote for Democrats.
So, learning that from these people, we asked certain key questions. (At the time the DNC led CONgress was at 11%.) We asked and stated that the Democrat led CONgress is at 11% approval rating. The DNC leadership through the years has created a circumstance that has forced the USA to be nearly totally dependent on foreign oil thus driving the costs to all time highs. The DNC leaders have the worst records of corruption in the history of this nation. The DNC leaders have violated the Logan Act continually "negotiating" their version of Foreign Policy in direct violation of the laws on the books because of their hatred of President Bush. Who are you voting for this year when 79% of the country thinks that the DNC led CONgress is pathetic and not doing what they promised the people they would do? Most of them said Democrats.
Someone please explain that to me.
And yes, we do in fact live in upside down land.
Now, after hearing this, we performed an operation that took courage and chutzpah. We took laptops and went where there was free WIFI (sometimes not) in various eateries and hotel lobbies and began a re-education process and were highly successful. We targeted college students in college towns at facilities either on the premises of colleges or at least near by where the Young Ones hung out.
The Bottom Line we discovered is as follows: the students ALL had the "understanding" that the country was in such sad shape because of the Republican Party whose leaders were Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and John Jerk Off Jack Murtha.
This is pure craziness. We have Academia purposefully misleading their captured audiences?
And now, on top of that, we have Obama the Marxist, wanting to have an armed Civilian Force so we don't have to fully rely on the military for our National Security? My first impression upon first hearing of this was an image of the Hitler Youth. I first ran into this over at the pathetic AARP. Why? Because I am a member of the Senile Citizen Club, that's why and I was reading their indoctrination crap.
Afterwards, I read this at Little Green Footballs and we discussed it on the JPA Live show. Simply amazing this is. Why is this not FULLY attacked by the lazy - well, I answered that with the lazy word. This is another example as to where the GOP/RNC people need to go an a tear and rant to ask this Marxist idiot just what in the hell he is planning and just how in the hell he is planning to finance such a project.
[...] Obama promised to increase AmeriCorps slots from 75,000 to 250,000 and pledged to double the size of the Peace Corps by 2011. [...]
"We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set," he said Wednesday. "We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded." [...]
Naturally, there is always this bit of lame rhetoric...another touchy-feely sound good idiotic tenet...
[...] "Our destiny as Americans is tied up with one another," he said. "If we are less respected in the world, then you will be less safe." [...]
[...] Is he even aware that the Department of Defense's current base budget is close to $500 billion? Obama is going to create a civilian force with this level of funding and equipment? To do what? [END]
Great questions, yes? We live in odd times where we are watching the List of 45 unfold and the Sheeple laugh and watch American Idol.
Lock and load people.
