Happy Stimulus Day!

I’m just so happy that the Stimulus Bill has been signed (in my very own state no less) that I just know this is going to become a national holiday.  Decades from now people will look back on this day and see the moment with the earth was healed, the oceans stopped rising, and everybody started farting rainbows.  And I don’t mean metaphysical “happiness” rainbows.  I mean actual rays of refracted light emenating from the orifices of every man, woman, and child in America.  Of course, I haven’t actually seen any of these farted rainbows yet, but that could simply mean I haven’t been in the presence of anyone with gas.  Or anyone with happy stimulus gas.

Of course, no one has really read the whole stimulus bill and therefore knows a) what it really spends b) what regulations and destruction of sections of the economy will occur nor c) just how Republicans will be punished for not supporting the will of the Chosen Ones of Democrat.  We know that Republicans will be punished for not supporting the The Messiah.   Obama is perfect in all he says and does, and those who oppose him must be punished.

But back to happy thoughts.   Are you one of the 95% of Americans who will be getting a tax cut?  Well, perhaps you are.  But its really impossible right now to tell if you are one of the happy, happy bunch who will be getting tax relief.  In fact, even if you don’t pay any income taxes you will be getting a tax refund check.  This is not a welfare check – no, no, no.  Those who say that getting a check when you didn’t pay any tax are Republicans and Republicans will be punished.  What we have is happy bunny checks coming to everybody.  Happy, happy bunnies.  Bunnies that multiply into stimulus for the economy.  $13 a week according to most reports.  That’s really happy.

And who do we have to thank for the rainbows and bunnies?  Well, this woman for one:

Aren’t you reassured to know that she is third in line to succeed to the Presidency of the United States?  Isn’t that yet another thought to be happy about on this Happy Stimulus Day.

Gimme Society – California Style

This is presented as a heartbreaking tale of the horrors of the California State budget impasse:

Kathy Sapp, who operates a state-funded day care center in her East Oakland home, has been running on fumes since the state Department of Education – its purse strings tied because of the budget impasse – stopped paying her and hundreds of other child care providers in California in early June.

To trim costs as she waits for her $4,000 monthly payments, she has stopped taking field trips to restaurants, has reduced the kids’ milk portions and sometimes uses beans instead of meat. She’s dipping into her savings, but she might have to take out a loan to cover groceries, her mortgage, her utility bills and her insurance if the 50-day stalemate drags on much longer.

On Monday afternoon, three preschoolers she is caring for woke from a nap after a trip to the library and ate a snack of cheese sandwiches, apple juice and bananas.

OK – so this is state-funded babysitting.  But what is actually missing from this report?  Parents.  As in – if this woman is having problems taking care of their children why doesn’t she go to the parents who are entrusting this woman with the care of their children and get the fracking money from them?

Of course then it wouldn’t be “free” would it?  But can anyone explain where in the US or California Constitution a “right” to “free” babysitting?  Just how did the instutions that were created to promote and protect the freedom of its citizens become a big babysitting entitlement machine?  The complete and utter degradation of what it means to be a free citizen in a free society has come down to hundreds and hundreds of taxpayer funded babysitting services.

So as the taxpayers of California are being raped to the tune of 8 to 11 percent of their salaries, each and every year, remember that you are paying for essential babysitting services.

Work harder – millions on welfare depend on you!

Competing With the Welfare Economy

Australia has a long history of appeasing the aboriginal population with money that they have to do nothing to obtain.  And guess what?  Sitting around and getting drunk and watching TV is easier than working for a living:

Artist Bernadette Tjingaling has been on CDEP longer than she can remember.

The 34-year-old was busy cleaning up at the Merrepen Arts Centre at Nauiyu when The Australian visited.

She was helping to prepare for the community’s annual arts festival, which will be held later this month.

Like many others in her community, Ms Tjingaling was forced onto the work-for-the-dole program when the Howard government abolished CDEP last year. She is one of the few in the community who works in exchange for her welfare payments.

Federal Indigenous Affairs Minister Jenny Macklin has reversed the previous government’s decision to abolish CDEP, but Ms Tjingaling said that after months of being paid a little over $200 a week for doing nothing, many people in her community did not want to go back onto CDEP, let alone undertake full-time work in local industries.

“Everybody used to work here,” she says, pointing around the arts centre. “When Centrelink came back on, everybody got lazy staying home.”

Now, would the “shocked” progressives in the audience please raise their hands?  Anybody you know who would be surprised that getting paid to do nothing–even a pittance that just gets you by–is preferred to working?

And its really interesting after being up there in the northern part of Australia with a bigger aboriginal population that you see the results right there every day.   The natives are sitting around the front of the mall or some store with the big bottles of beer.  They obviously have nothing to do, and spend their days getting drunk from about noon till they pass out.  And then start the same thing the next day.

There are Help Wanted signs in just about every store in the mall, but you never see any aboriginal people working in the stores.  Just sitting outside getting drunk.  And that’s how it ends up with a welfare state:

Tiwi Land Council business development manager Brian Clancy said a company set up by traditional owners on the island had trouble finding staff to work in its forestry operations.

“We’re competing with the welfare economy,” Mr Clancy said. “People just say straight out: ‘Why would we come out to work when we can go home and watch a video and still get our 280 bucks at the end of the week?’ It makes it very hard.”

Its just that you eventually hit some point where there are more drunks on the couch than the working people will pay for.  In Australia the aboriginal population is very small compared to the country at large, so its more of a rounding error in the national budget to just give them weekly beer money.  And the aboriginal society continues to disintegrate.  Wife beating (well, live-in woman beating – marriage is almost extinct) is common, just about everybody eventually ends up arrested for drunkness or theft, and the checks still come.

Isn’t this a case of genocide?  Just being done one check and case of beer at a time.

Man Dead 8 Years Found in Apartment

While his severely mentally ill roommate continued to live there with the body all that time?
clipped from www.smh.com.au
The body of a man, believed to be dead for nearly a decade, has
been found in a UK flat, where a council tenant continued to
live.
The body of the tenant’s former lodger was discovered by council
workers on a sofa in the lounge room after neighbours reported a
foul smell.
Police believe the dead man was in his 70s.
Police initially arrested the tenant living in the unit but are
no longer treating the death as suspicious.
They believe the elderly tenant failed to report the death
because he suffers severe mental health problems.
Bristol Coroner’s Court will open an inquest today and Bristol
City Council has launched an internal inquiry into how the corpse
went unnoticed for so long.
A spokesman for the council says it’s suspected the body was
there for at least eight years.

Britain – Mulitple Wife Welfare Payments

Sharia by stealth.
clipped from www.theothersideofkim.com
Barry Beelzebub asks the simple question: if bigamy is illegal in Britain, and it is, then why aren’t Muslim men prosecuted for having more than one wife?
But that’s only the first part of the question, because:
The [Department of Welfare and Pensions] has decreed that the going [welfare] rate is (pounds) 92.80 a week for hubby and wife one, with a further (pounds) 33.65 for subsequent wives. They don’t say that the upper limit is four, but I bet that it is.
So how did this happen? When did Parliament decide that sharia law is now applicable in Britain? Who decided to give extreme Muslims immunity from the day-to-day strictures that apply to the rest of us? I must have missed that debate and subsequent vote.
The truth is that there has been no debate and there has been no vote.
This is how Government proceeds apace in subverting our society: not by law, but by regulation.
