Congressman Cleaver's $48 Billion Earmark (Reparations)
via drudge ^ | 12/15/10 | Mike Jensen

Rep. Cleaver has proposed a $48 billion earmark When absurdity gives way to hilarity, you must be talking about politics.

In the midst of a colossal global concern for the economic stability of our great nation, Emanuel Cleaver, Missouri's 5th Congressional District representative, has one small earmark on his wish list that deserves some attention.

Cleaver has listed a new earmark -- one of several -- and he promises to "fight for every one." But this is a whopping $48 billion package that must go down as the grandaddy of all earmarks.

Search Breitbart for “Pigford”. Still think Democrats have lost their minds? Whatever they can get away with, they will do it.

I wonder what June Cleaver would think of this?

“Why not ask the Beaver”?

“Wally, what do you think about this idea?”

” Ah, ma, it sucks!”

The Beaver: It thi congressman a relative? If so, throw him out of the family.”

Oh, well. April and tax time are just around the corner, and they’ve already got that spent 25 yrs. or more in the future. Ahhh . . springtime . . and they smell money burning a hole in their pockets. Our money . . .

Their plan is simple. Loot the Treasury while the Treasury still has the ability to borrow from future generations. Not thought at all for tomorrow......

Criminals.

Rev. Cleaver was a do nothing Mayor in Kansas City, Missouri. He was the alledged spitting victim with Nancy “wicked witch” when they were taunting Tea party folks on Capitol hill after passing ObummerCare.

A certain group of people (?) elected this guy mayor, and he did nothing, so they elected him to Congress, where he continues to do nothing but devise ways (actually, borrow ideas on how) to steal money from people who earn it in order to give it to people who don’t. What does that tell you about his constituents?

Well, with $48 billion you could give to the 12 million (est) inner-city black people these choices:

1. give the money to community organizers for bribery, graft and get out the vote efforts (i.e. waste the whole kit & kaboodle, as usual)
2. give each person in the inner city $4000, provided they get the hell out of the inner city and STAY the hell OUT, thereby elevating the level of rural basketball across America, while giving them a chance to go to schools where at least half of the kids and parents care about getting an education and a future.
3. like that’s gonna happen

Think of the crack that would buy. They would not leave if cash was provided. This is so devious and so wrong. Years of the Great Society and War on Poverty. A nation of dependency, with very few who “got out”. Made to fail,made to keep them where they are.

keep them where they are

which is precisely what community organizers are for -- doing everything possible to keep a bloc of voters all in one place and well under control. Period. What a crime against humanity.

Drive a wooden stake into the heart of this abomination of a bill; born in secret behind closed doors. In fact, kill all the bills during this lame duck session.

Remember Republicans who brought you to the dance.

Sorry, but adding dog crap to good soup doesn't improve the soup or the dog crap. Let them stay where they are and fix their own damned problems.

This is a good (cough, cough) Reverend. He has just picked up the methodology of how to legislate ‘compassion’, without having to pass the plate and praise the lord.

Obama “raised a ruckus” last week with his tax-extension proposal to create a distraction from the fact that he was quietly signing Pigford II and setting up the long-awaited reparations for blacks.

Wasn't affirmative action enough? I mean, it brought us uhbama...either that or something sinister did. He won't release his records, which leaves much speculation. What were his grades? Who paid for his schooling? Did he receive foreign aid at Occidental College? Who paid for Harvard? Columbia? All secret. From his nation he keeps this a secret. What experience did he have in meeting a payroll, governing? Who financed this smarmy smooth talking man? Why is he not considered half black? He certainly does not qualify for the office.

I’ve seen that picture posted many times, but have never known what was inside the building they were trying to enter.

Of course, when they're teenagers and start having kids they'll receive free in-school child care whilst they ply away in class learning all about science, math and geology so they can go on to be stellar; productive citizens.

You know, there really is nothing to worry about. If Obama can’t come up with solutions to bring about economic expansion and national security he does have Jay-Z and Beyoncé on his Blackberry contact list. Those two are very, very intelligent beings.
