Well it looks like its OK for Obama to fire the head of General Motors; however, Bush can't even fire his own U.S. attorneys. Obama administrations demanded that Rick Wagoner resign as chairman of General Motors, basically he was fired as the price of GM's accepting government money. Obama says the government will stand by your GM car warranty to promote sales of GM vehicles. And all the taxpayers will get to foot the bill. The new GM owner's manual will come with a disclaimer: "Government Control, closer than it appears.
Now that weve all agreed that the government can make hiring and firing decisions based on the acceptance of taxpayer money, I can think of a few specific government funded entities whose employees are badly in need of firing. Right off the bat I think of Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and everybody at the Department of Education? Also, how about firing all the former Weathermen, like Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn and Mark Rudd, whose university salaries are subsidized by the taxpayer? Doesnt that seem fair? I am sure if their achievements were racked up alongside Rick Wagoner we would have no choice but to fire them. Almost every, if not all, universities in the country accepts government money. Is there any industry in America more in need of some restructuring than academia? What's Berkeley's business plan, stop turning out anti-capitalist graduates who hate America? And what is Obama's reason for keeping Shirley M. Tilghman as president of Princeton University as long as Princeton employs the well known wackjob Peter Singer? Singer, the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton's Center for Human Values, believes parents should have the right to kill newborn babies with birth defects, such as Down syndrome and hemophilia, and says there is nothing morally wrong with parents having children in order to harvest them for spare organs for an older child, or even for society to breed children on a massive scale for spare parts. Someone REALLY liked the matrix first time they saw it. I mean, his views on these issues are so extreme I am surprised Singer hasn't been offered a position somewhere in Obamas cabinet yet. Perhaps he paid his taxes, and only hired legal documented workers and therefore was disqualified.
Singer compares the black liberation movement to the liberation of apes, saying we must "extend to other species the basic principle of equality that most of us recognize should be extended to all members of our own species." Now please indulge me, my Che flag waving, Fidel Castro praising liberal buddies, Imagine, just for one moment, if Rush Limbaugh had said that. I cannot even begin to tell you of the outrage in the liberal media. Keith Oberman and Chris Matthews would be organizing a Frankenstein mob, with torches and pitchforks calling for his head.
The esteemed professor Singer also believes sex with animals is acceptable and has no objections to necrophilia, only if of course the deceased gave consent when still alive. We're still waiting to hear his views on sex with dead animals. Especially me, because I have absolutely nothing to do this Easter. Doesn't a new vision for Princeton, which profits from massive, and I mean massive taxpayer subsidies in the form of student loans and government grants , require firing the president of Princeton? That university is clearly teetering on the brink of moral bankruptcy. Would you keep paying your childs tuition if this black hearted sicko was teaching your child?
Total honesty is required beyond this point.. So..when is the government going to get around to firing 99 percent of public school superintendents? They're clearly turning out an inferior product, like America's public school graduates, more than half of which cant even read for christsakes. In New York City, spending on public schools increased by more than 300 percent between 1982 and 2001, coming in at $11,474 per pupil annually , compared to about $5,000 for private schools. If Obama can tell GM and Chrysler that their promotional activities in NASCAR is an "unnecessary expenditure," isn't having public schools force students to follow Muslim rituals, recite Islamic prayers and plan "jihads" also an "unnecessary expenditure"? Are all those school condom purchases considered "necessary expenditures"?
Illegal aliens cost the American taxpayer more than $10 billion a year in Medicaid, Medicare, food stamps, free school lunches, prison, school and court costs. You want some stimulus, close emergency rooms to illegals. And yet cities, counties and states across the nation are openly refusing to enforce federal immigration law against illegal aliens, while accepting billions of dollars of stimulus money on top of numerous, and I mean numerous other federal payouts. Shouldn't somebody be fired over this?
How about hauling San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom before a congressional committee and firing him? San Francisco is getting $18 million of stimulus money. Its no surprise to me that the majority of its residents will receive this money in the form of Social Security payments, government grants, welfare payments, federal highway funds, not to mention the numerous other government handouts they have over there. Doesn't PBS take federal funds? Obama should really ask Elmo to step down and fund the research to discover actually how to get to Sesame Street. While we're at it, shouldn't Tim Geithner be fired? Now that the government owns everything, there's no end to the dead weight that we can be rid of. What about Schumer, Harry Ried, Franklin Rhaines, I mean theres so many.
But the problem is, as this very incomplete list shows, most of the dead weight exists only because of government in the first place! Capitalism has its own methods of clearing out dead weight, which the government keeps preventing by forcing the taxpayer to bail out capitalism's losers. Let the market fail, let it reset and those who lose will rebuild like always and those who deserved to fail will. Life is not fair, not everything is free, and bad things happen to good people and that my friends is what builds character and winners in America, not whining, sniveling future Marxists with their dirty little paws extended outward begging, please sir may I have some more?
Next time Bawney decides to go spew his BS at some college, make sure some smart young student asks him this question.
He’ll throw a stroke.
...Chris Dodd is still there too!
Yea - we need a student to do it because the Pubbies are too weak to stand up to Bawney like that kid did.
Lame. Coulter’s version is better - and it came out a week ago. He takes the same jokes, though.

As much as I HATE Obooooombi & the rest of the demoRAT socialist-fascists, I am literally amazed at the balls & chutzpah of these socialists. And why aren't ANY of these so called high powered execs like Rick Wagoner showing any balls themselves and telling Oboooombi & the rest of demoRAT socialists to go pound salt (or whatever else they pound) when the demoRATs call for the resignation of Rick Wagoner or any other execs.
I cannot believe the cowardice of Wagoner & other execs to allow that commie pig incompetent bastard Obooooombi to chastise them and then call for their resignation, irregardless of whether they took bailout money or not. Wagoner should have grown a pair of balls, and told Obooooombi to shove it....and force a confrontation. Instead he just immediately resigned VOLUNTARILY!!! And bank CEO's grovel before Obooooombi while he smears them privately & publicly. WTH???? Are these CEOs that big of wimps that they allow a junior nothing like Obooooombi or other demoRAT socialists like faggot Barney Franks to humiliate & chastise them publicly???
I don't have a lot of sympathy for these execs who will let these demoRAT socialist bastards & usurper commie pig Obooooombi rip them apart without even speaking up in their defense......let alone harshly rebuking Obooooombi & the demoRAT socialists. I guess maybe they were hopelessly incompetent in running their banks or companies, when they allow a complete novice unaccomplished idiot like Obooooombi to chastise them openly & publicly, while they cower before Zero.
I think you got it on this one. We have no one with any fortitude in any position of power of our large companies and in the GOP. I am hoping BofA takes the Kenyan ass and his cohorts to court and forces them to take back the money they forced on them. Of course this is a pipe dream.
IMO, many of our larger companies do not want to upset the Kenyan ass because they are in favor of his health plan ideas because it will reduce a cost of doing business.
Bawney leawned his lesson. He's gonna make sure and only take questions from shills in the future.
At medicines shows a century ago, the pitchman would have accomplices, called shills, in the audience who would make "unsolicited" testimonials to effacy of the snake oil on offer. These days the LSM play the role of shill to the Democratic snake oil pitchmen.
Bawney Fwanck: "Enwon. I'm glad ya you axed me that son, you see this here bail out, it's known to cure all the ills dat dem wascally wepublicans cawsed wid deir market dwiven shennagians. Enwon. A fu bottles of dis and you'll feel like a new countwy. Only a twillion dollaws a bottle. Did I mention Enwon? "
Only I'm afraid we will feel like a new countwy.
Sigh. I hate Obooooomba more every day, but I have to confess that I equally hate & despise the rat bastard cowardly GOP wimps & RNC who gingerly or never attack Oboooomba, and the wimpy rat bastard CEO's who cower before this incompetent, insignificant junior grade beginner associate in his first ever full time job, while he rakes them over the coals. And they meekly bow in subservience to this commie pig!!! God forgive us for such cowards who share in the blame for Obooooomba's destruction of America.
