Up, Up, and Away..................

Do you ever feel like you've heard enough? That you're living in an alternate universe? We've got ridiculously huge amounts of 'stimulus' money and only a tiny amount will be spent this year so how can we ("WE?") call that a 'stimulus'? We've got a governor who's on tape clearly asking for money for a senatorial position but thinks he did nothing wrong. We've got thousands of people losing jobs every day. We have a new Secretary of the Treasury who very clearly evaded paying taxes. You and I both could go on and ON and on, right?

........and Yahoo! has a story tonight on Angelina Jolie having worn a dress backward. WHAT?

Okay...fire up the balloon (as IF I'd get into one!!!).........................I'm ready to TAKE OFF into the air......mostly because I'm just not one of those who puts her head in the sand.

I have a different idea: We put His Majesty Obama I and his whole gang into the basket and let it fly very high..... Au revoir!

And then we make a second shipment: The 90% of members of both houses, who are worth nothing. Adios!

And then start all over..... Refreshing idea, isn't it?

I'm fairly overwhelmed at this point, Z.
I get that way quite often, though.

It's scary. Obama's been in office just over a week and we've got this much junk going on?

Let's not worry, let's stay informed and keep handing it over to God.

Not only that, but only 12% of the money is "stimulus" money. The rest is a GIGANTIC pork spending bill.

Z, Yeah I can agree with that feeling of wanting to just high tail it out of here.

Paul said it this way,"For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:Nevertheless to abide in the flesh [is] more needful for you." Phil 1:23-24

So, even with the feeling of getting out of dodge; we that love her (America) must stay and help.

That's my two-cents anyway.

Blessings.

I.H.S., I'm so glad to hear you say that because I believe that, too.
There are some on this site (Ducky) who accuse CHristians of apocalyptic dreams...but I know we aren't going anywhere until He wants us to go and we are to be good stewards and do our work down here.

yeah I'm thinking a weekend trip to San Diego would be nice.

Frankly z, I'd worry about Cali starting to default on its bonds.

Got a real financial mess on your hands there. About all you can handle and it isn't clear the Gropinator is up to it. Well that's what happens when Hollywood gets involved in trying to govern.

The Gray Davis days are going to be fond memories.

Z said...

Ducky....what, is this a news flash to me, or? the purpose of your comment?

You're right about Hollywood! The Left has almost TOTALLY ruined this state. Utterly stupid restrictions, environmental laws you can't believe!...

Arnold is no conservative....he got elected with the same ridiculous STAR thing that your ONE did.

Let's hope liberal Arnold's election doesn't foreshadow California's problems for America...........
Thank GOD Gray Davis is gone...he'd be acting in the same irresponsible ridiculous socialist ways THE ONE is exhibiting today!? Whew!

It just goes to show how desperate the need is to clean the Democrats out of Congress. Otherwise they'll do to us federally what the medieval legal/leech bearing bloodletters in the California Legislature did to the Golden State... suck their taxpayers drier than the Mojave Desert in August.

I.H.S. My sentiments exactly. I too have those thoughts of escape, for a few seconds. However, I love America too much to seriously entertain such thoughts.

Ducky, you'll get no defense of our California Governor from me. The "R" after his name means nothing to me. Unlike too many democrats for whom their party is their religion.

Having said that, our California legislature has not changed, and regardless, we would be right where we are no matter who the Governor is. The Democrats run this state, top to bottom.

If the feds gave us a bailout of 40 billion, they would do what the democrats in Washington just did. Spend it! Spending, passing laws, and regulating our lives, is their addiction and they need their fix!

What should have been done in Washington is a big across the board tax cut. The economy would have responded positively.

But, that would mean the people would be in control, and the left could not abide that. Their addiction is too great. Spending and control. They need their fix too.

As I said further above, I wished BHO and his whole gang and the 90% of Congress which are useless idiots would just go away, by hot air balloon or otherwise. Yes, since some of you mentioned it, Arnold, his left-wing Kennedy offspring, and the whole CA legislature need to join that one-way-trip, too. This micro-cosmos CA reflects very well what will be expecting us at the Federal level with His Majesty. CA has the worst business conditions, probably in the world. No wonder that companies leaving in droves.

So, we will design a vehicle large enough to send the whole group off. Auf Wiedersehen! (Actually, not - this German expression means "see you again").
