Posted in Politics with tags , , , , on August 16, 2011 by shutterbugklentz

Ah  tax day cometh, already?  My favorite time of year, you gotta love it!  Yes, that’s right my fellow citizens, it has only taken us 7 1/2 months and every penny that we have collectively earned to pay for federal, state and local spending.  And don’t forget government regulations.   I know you’ll feel good getting out of bed tomorrow headed off to work knowing that this years astronomical tax bill has been paid…SHWOOOO what a load off!  Each of us should be ecstatic and feel that extra bit of patriotism for doing our fair share knowing that we will each get to keep the next 4 1/2 months of our pay.  Gotta love this government, can you feel it working for ya?

How to win back the White House in 2012? CONSERVATIVELY

Posted in Politics with tags , , , on April 23, 2011 by shutterbugklentz

2012 Republican Contenders

If you ask me, the Republican party has far too many “hopefuls” for the 2012 presidential election and hope is something we do not need.  

What we do need is a Winner!  We need to focus, now, on one candidate that has the best chance of winning back the White House and leading this great nation back to its conservative roots and here’s how it can be done.

1.      Quickly decide on one eligible-qualified candidate that has the best shot at Winning back the White House and beginmarketing that one person to the American people.  Unite and Conquer 
2.      Pull all of our resources (funds) together for this one candidate.  President Obama as you may already know has become the Billion dollar candidate.
3.      Gather together the top ten issues that the American Citizen (doesn’t matter if they are a Democrat or Republican) has and create one conservative plan to resolve those issues.  Even if that means combining several different plans into one.  Let’s put the egos aside, please.
4.      Begin, immediately, a forceful Public Relations campaign that will articulate to anyone that is capable of hearing, the details of how and when the top ten list will be accomplished and school every member of Congress on the details of said plan.  Remember Action speaks louder than Words. 
5.      Fax, email, snail-mail and advertise this completed plan to all GOP members, Independents, Libertarians, even Democrats…etc. anyone you think that needs to fully understand what the Republican party can do for them. 

And lastly; talk, blog, phone, fax, YouTube, sign, if you have to, the plan and the one person up until you are unable to speak another word!

Time is of the essence.  This is the only way we are going to win the White House back, Unite and Conquer!  The American Citizen is exhausted from all of the non-sense that our Representatives have been doing and are fed up with the business as usual glad-handing and soft-selling.  It is time to get serious about the conservative roots of the Republican party and start behaving like Conservatives and turn this mess that both the President and our Representatives have created.

Our Immigration Policy really works, if you’re an Illegal Alien

Posted in Politics with tags , , , , on April 21, 2011 by shutterbugklentz

Cheap Tomatoes – an English teacher speaks out!  This English teacher has phrased it the best I’ve seen yet!  She is with LAUSD but it could be anywhere USA.

“As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of: I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large southern California high school which is designated a Title 1 school, meaning that its students average lower socio-economic and income levels.  Most of the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High,Bell Gardens,Huntington Park, etc., where these students are protesting, are also Title 1 schools.  Title 1 schools are on the free breakfast and free lunch program.  When I say free breakfast, I’m not talking a glass of milk and roll — but a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make a Marriott proud.  The waste of this food is monumental, with trays and trays of it being dumped in the trash uneaten.   ( OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK – disgusting )

I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least moderately overweight.   About 75% or more DO have cell phones.  And they love to text message during class time.  The school also provides day care centers for the unwed teenage pregnant girls (some as young as 13) so they can attend class without the inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids.  (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)

I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department or risk losing funding for the upcoming year even though there was little need for anything; my budget was already substantial.  I ended up buying new computers for the computer learning center, half of which, one month later, have been carved with graffiti by the appreciative students who obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a free education in America.   (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)

I have had to intervene several times for young and substitute teachers whose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students here in the country less than 3 months, who raised so much hell with the female teachers, calling them ‘Putas’ (whores) and throwing things that the teachers were in tears.  Free medical, free education, free food, day care etc., Is it any wonder they feel entitled to not only be in this country but to demand rights, privileges and entitlements?

To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our society because they LIKE their gardener and housekeeper and they like to pay less for tomatoes: spend some time in the real world of illegal immigration and see the TRUE costs.  Higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical costs, lower wages for citizens, more crime, lower standards of education in our schools, overcrowding, new diseases etc., etc, etc .  For me, I’ll pay more for tomatoes.

We need to wake up.  The guest worker program will be a disaster because we won’t have the guts to enforce it!  Does anyone in their right mind really think they will voluntarily leave and return?  It does, however, have everything to do with culture: A third-world culture that does not value education, that accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out of school by 15 and that refuses to assimilate, and an American culture that has become so weak and worried about ‘political correctness’ that we don’t have the will to do anything about it.

CHEAP LABOR?  Isn’t that what the whole immigration issue is about?  Business doesn’t want to pay a decent wage.  Consumers don’t want expensive produce.

Government will tell you Americans don’t want the jobs.  But the bottom line is cheap labor.  The phrase ‘cheap labor’ is a myth , a farce, and a lie.  There is no such thing as ‘cheap labor.’  Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children.  He takes a job for $5.00 or 6.00/hour.  At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return, he gets an ‘ earned income credit’ of up to $3,200 free.  He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent.   He qualifies for food stamps.  He qualifies for free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care.  His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school.  He requires bilingual teachers and books.   He qualifies for relief from high energy bills.  If they are or become, aged, blind or disabled , they qualify for SSI.  Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare.  All of this is at (our) taxpayer’s expense!   He doesn’t worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance.  Taxpayers provide Spanish  language signs, bulletins and printed material.  He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in benefits.  Wake up people!

Want to instill fear into Terrorist?  New TSA Policy:  Janet Napolitano is coming to an airport near you.

See you at the Polls

Posted in Politics on November 2, 2010 by shutterbugklentz

Don’t forget to pack your common sense on November 2 when you head out to the polls, and remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.  remember these:

“I’ve got swampland in Florida to sell you, real cheap.”  Or “If you believe that, I’ve got a bridge to sell you.”  Or this one, “Daisy chain of profit:  Last one in loses.”

Don’t forget these gems?
