Louis Carl "Lou" Dobbs for President.

Just watched an interview with Lou Dobbs on Huckabee it made me wish he was running.

Sigh...

Why is everyone else framing this and worried about defaulting on our 'obligations.'

This is like me maxing out my credit cards, then making a promise to you to by you a new car. I don't have the money so I need the credit card company to raise my limit, so I can keep a promise I should not have made. If I don't buy this car you might blame me and not like me.

Idiots,
Josh

Message for Huckabee

Sent this e-mail to Mike Huckabee at huckmail@foxnews.com.

Subject: You lost me on FOX and Friends Saturday this morning.

Sometimes the best thing is for something not to get done.

If you have an addict; and our government is addicted to spending, what do you do? Do you facilitate the addict and make excuses for them; it's only a little spendy know?

Doing something is not always better than doing nothing.

Let's put this in terms you will understand. It's like having someone that weighs 600lbs. set a goal to lose 200lbs; because you can't get them to commit to a long term health plan, and then patting them on the back saying your doing a good job.  As soon as you turn your back they're back to binge eating and now weigh 700lbs.

Your assertion that the Speaker of Houses job is just to move legislation along and get something past is, in my humble opinion, the problem.

People like to make the analogy between a family in debt/credit crisis and our governments current debt crisis.

This is my response to them.

Sorry, if your like most people, that get into a spending debt crisis in this country, you file bankruptcy. The question is do you file under 11 or 13?

Chapter 11: get the courts to screwover your creditors (get them to except 10 cents on the dollar), and start running up the dept again. Or....
Chapter 13: court order restructuring/ payment plan. Stop incurring new dept. Accept a crappy credit score. Cut up the credit-cards, and start living with in your means. This means no new Lexus everyyear. No McMansions. Maybe start shopping at WallyWorld.

We need to accept the pain and get through it, and move on. We've become such pussies as a country that we don't want to take the consequences of our largesse.

The next person I hear complaining about our national credit rating might get down graded and the Fed might raise interest rates is going to get bitchslaped, or at lest a dressing down in a loud voice.

If certain institutions hadn't kept interest rates artificially low and our national credit rating high, so as to make things appear better than they are. Maybe we wouldn't have aloud things to get so out of hand.

We can yell at congress and our government, but they are us, and we haven't done so great ourselves.

That being said we can no longer afford to continued down this path, and just slowing the car down is not going to be enough.

Those that complain or worry about our credit rating getting down graded or interest rates raised are the ones that need it the most.

When money is easy to come by we lose sight of the value of money.

Congresses job is not too just pass legislation, and most of us would like them to stop fiddling with the engine while the cars still moving.

Thank you for taking the time to read this rant.

P.s. Sorry for the car analogies. They seem to be in-vogue now. :-)

This is how the police get a bad rep.

If the police want to win the public relations war then they need to do a better job of policing themselves. They need to not tolerate the 'Thin Blue Line' mentality of us against them.

The police are public servants. Not our mommies or daddies. If the police expect us to treat them with respect they need to treat the general public with respect. Respect is a two-way street.

I know cops that act like this one are in the minority, but the public perception that this attitude is tolerated, even covered up and pushed under the rug is out there.

The Links here & here.

I tried to find a statement by the Canton OH PD, but I couldn't find one. If someone has a link or knows of one let me know, and it will get linked.

Thanks to David Hardy over at Of Arms & the Law for bring this to my attention.

P.S. If this didn't effect something we cared about would we even be talking about this out of control cop?


Update: over at "Of Arms & the Law" there's a new post with updated info and more thoughts on the matter.

Another update: Roberta X has a great post at her blog, and it's a great reminder that not all officers are a Goofus.

Thinking about Thinking.

Have we as a nation lost our ability to think for ourselves?

Our we at the point, that without an authority figure to tell us what the correct answer is or what to do, we wouldn't be able to figure-out something on our own?

Hmmm...,
