MORE ‘Stupidity on Parade!’…Special (S)o (H)appy (I)t’s (T)hursday edition!


Just a little update on what’s being said out there!..

o

“No, the overall goal is to decrease our dependency on oil, to build and strengthen our economy,” ... “We think that if you consider all these energy policies, including energy efficiency, we think that we can go a long way to becoming less dependent on oil..."

Clueless Energy Secretary, Stephen Chu, testifying before a Congressional committee about the spike in gas prices…and if the Administration plans to do anything about it….Apparently, the belief is Americans will change their driving habits overnight. Yet another example of President Obama deciding which industries can function in the free market place…and which cannot.

"The big difference is that the protesters don’t believe in governance. They have zero tolerance for the compromises needed to get legislation passed. They don’t believe in trimming and coalition building. For them, politics is more about earning respect and making a statement than it is about enacting legislation. It’s grievance politics, identity politics."

Pontificator and supposedly “conservative” columnist, David Brooks on the tea party influence with the Republicans….I think it’s safe to say Mr. Brooks’ take could be applied to Congressional Democrats also….hmmm…

Peggy Noonan counters….

“For conservatives on the ground, it has often felt as if Democrats (and moderate Republicans) were always saying, “We should spend a trillion dollars,” and the Republican Party would respond, “No, too costly. How about $700 billion?” Conservatives on the ground are thinking, “How about nothing? How about we don’t spend more money but finally start cutting.”

“The second thing is the clock. Here is a great virtue of the tea party: They know what time it is. It’s getting late. If we don’t get the size and cost of government in line now, we won’t be able to. We’re teetering on the brink of some vast, dark new world—states and cities on the brink of bankruptcy, the federal government too. The issue isn’t “big spending” anymore. It’s ruinous spending that they fear will end America as we know it, as they promised it to their children…”

"....much more complicated and difficult … and not being compensated fairly when compared to the private sector....''

A man obviously detached from reality, Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) referring to federal jobs as he addressed the National Treasury Employees Union….I wouldn’t expect anything less enlightened from you, Senator!

"Under current law, on Jan. 1, 2013, there’s going to be a massive fiscal cliff of large spending cuts and tax increases,” “I hope that Congress will look at that and figure out ways to achieve the same long-run fiscal improvement without having it all happen at one date. “All those things are hitting on the same day, basically. It’s quite a big event.”

Obviously unaware of the everlasting and damaging effects HIS entity, the Federal Reserve, pursues…Chief Ben Bernanke lectured Congressional committee members of the dangers ahead….like they will actually DO SOMETHING about it…

“In looking forward, this is a new chapter in my life. I decided if I was going to do something different, it had to be at this moment in time. I’m going to be giving my voice to what should change here in the United States Senate and in Congress to get things done for the American people,”

Worthless  Maine Senator, Olympia Snowe (R) on her retirement plans…She has the dubious honor of ranking #2 on Human Events’ listing of RINOS….Essentially, if a Democrat picks up her seat, it would make little difference to Republicans in the Senate…
