"Ax-Ready" gov't programs vs. 0bama's "Shovel-Ready"

An Open Letter to the United States Congress and President-elect Obama: Instead of "Shovel-Ready" Spending, Focus on "Ax-Ready" Waste

NTU Excerpt:

In the interest of fostering a rational debate over Washington's priorities, both the National Taxpayers Union (NTU) and Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW) maintain extensive lists of programs that could be cut and legislation that would reduce spending. We target programs that are either ineffective or duplicative, as well as activities best left to state and local governments or the private sector.

CCAGW's research arm, Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW), released "Prime Cuts 2009" this week, a database containing 700 spending cut recommendations across the entire federal budget totaling $1.9 trillion over five years. It includes the elimination of duplicative and inefficient ventures such as the Market Access Program, which is funneling $231 million over five years to some of the largest and most profitable American companies for advertising abroad. "Prime Cuts" also makes tough calls, like canceling the NASA Mars Initiative, saving $11.5 billion over five years. It is available from CAGW staff or at www.tinyurl.com/primecuts09.
 
 
Big Rattler says, "Let's get a grip on the ax, not the shovel."

Risch porks it up right out of the hog pen for gov't land grab

Twelve US Senate RePORKblicans, including newly suckled Jim Risch voted for Harry Reid's government land grab bill that puts us further away from a decent energy policy.  (Wonder how he and Crapo-rk would have voted when gas was $4.00+ a gallon?)
 
Excellent link to Michelle Malkin's write up and list of other RePORKblicans who voted with Harry Reid:  "Jim DeMint didn't mince any words when calling out the capitulationist Republican 12 who aided Reid and the Dems. Dingy Harry has blocked Republicans from proposing any amendments to the package. The Bend-over GOP Dozen deserve a smack upside the head."
 
More info:  "The bill ... sets aside 200 million acres for public wilderness in nine states. It adds more than 1,000 miles to the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System and 2,800 miles of new trails to the federal system."

'Atlas Shrugged': From Fiction to Fact in 52 Years

Wall Street Journal editor Stephen Moore wrote an article (1-9-08) drawing parallels of today's massive debt crisis and Ayn Rand's influential book "Atlas Shrugged."  Below is an excerpt of his article.  Link
 
One memorable moment in "Atlas" occurs near the very end, when the economy has been rendered comatose by all the great economic minds in Washington. Finally, and out of desperation, the politicians come to the heroic businessman John Galt (who has resisted their assault on capitalism) and beg him to help them get the economy back on track. The discussion sounds much like what would happen today:

Galt: "You want me to be Economic Dictator?"

Mr. Thompson: "Yes!"

"And you'll obey any order I give?"

"Implicitly!"

"Then start by abolishing all income taxes."

"Oh no!" screamed Mr. Thompson, leaping to his feet. "We couldn't do that . . . How would we pay government employees?"

"Fire your government employees."

"Oh, no!"

Blago should rescind Burris and appoint a GOP'er

Now Blagojevich should rescind the Burris nomination since the US Senate has tainted his appointment and postponed the law by not seating him.
 
Blago's next move -- to throw the corrupt fish-headed politicians into full flatulence frenzy -- would be then to appoint a REPUBLICAN to take 0bama's old Senate seat.
 
Frankly, what does Blago have to lose?
