Great Information.

Tom's Journal.

The Obama Democrats: by the numbers

$34,000: the amount of federal taxes that Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner (D) failed to pay during his employment at the International Monetary Fund despite receiving extra compensation and explanatory brochures that described his tax liabilities.

$75,000: the amount of money that the head of the powerful tax-writing committee, Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY), was forced to report on his taxes after the discovery that he had not reported income from a Costa Rican rental property. His excuses for the failure started with blaming his wife, then his accountant and finally the fact that he didn't speak Spanish.

$93,000: the amount of petty cash each Congressional representative voted to give themselves in January 2009 during the height of an economic meltdown.

$133,900: the amount Fannie Mae "invested" in Chris Dodd (D-CT), head of the powerful Senate Banking Committee, presumably to repel oversight of the GSE prior to its meltdown. Said meltdown helped touch off the current economic crisis. In only a few years time, Fannie also "invested" over $105,000 in then-Senator Barack Obama.

$140,000: the amount of back taxes and interest that Cabinet nominee Tom Daschle (D) was forced to cough up after the vetting process revealed significant, unexplained tax liabilities.

$356,000: the approximate amount of income and deductions that Daschle (D) was forced to report on his amended 2005 and 2007 tax returns after being caught cheating on his taxes. This includes $255,256 for the use of a car service, $83,333 in unreported income, and $14,963 in charitable contributions.

$800,000: the amount of "sweetheart" mortgages Senate Banking Chairman Chris Dodd (D-CT) received from Countrywide Financial, the details for which he has refused to release details despite months of promises to do so. Countrywide was once the nation's largest mortgage lender and linked to Government-Sponsored Entities like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Their meltdown precipitated the current financial crisis. Just days ago in Pennsylvania, Countrywide was forced to pay $150,000,000 in mortgage assistance following "a state investigation that concluded that Countrywide relaxed its underwriting standards to sell risky loans to consumers who did not understand them and could not afford them."

$1,000,000: the estimated amount of donations by Denise Rich, wife of fugitive Marc Rich, to Democrat interests and the William J. Clinton Foundation in an apparent quid pro quo deal that resulted in a pardon for Mr. Rich. The pardon was reviewed and blessed by Obama Attorney General and then Deputy AG Eric Holder, despite numerous requests by government officials to turn it down.

$12,000,000: the amount of TARP money provided to community bank OneUnited despite the fact that it did not qualify for funds, and was "under attack from its regulators for allegations of poor lending practices and executive-pay abuses." It turns out that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), a key contributor to the Fannie Mae meltdown, just happens to be married to one of the bank's ex-directors.

$23,500,000: The upper range of net worth Rep. Allan Mollohan (D-WV) accumulated in four years time according to The Washington Post through earmarks of "tens of millions of dollars to groups associated with his own business partners."

$2,000,000,000: ($2 billion) the approximate amount of money that House Appropriations Chairman David Obey (D-WI) is earmarking related to his son's lobbying efforts. Craig Obey is "a top lobbyist for the nonprofit group" that would receive a roughly $2 billion component of the "Stimulus" package.

$3,700,000,000: ($3.7 billion) not to be outdone, this is the estimated value of various defense contracts awarded to a company controlled by the husband of Rep. Diane Feinstein (D-CA). Despite an obvious conflict-of-interest as "a member of the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee, Sen. Feinstein voted for appropriations worth billions to her husband's firms ."

$4,190,000,000: ($4.19 billion) the amount of money in the so-called "Stimulus" package devoted to fraudulent voter registration ACORN group under the auspices of "Community Stabilization Activities". ACORN is currently the subject of a RICO suit in Ohio.

$1,646,000,000,000 ($1.646 trillion): the approximate amount of annual United States exports endangered by the "Stimulus" package, which provides a "Buy American" stricture. According to international trade experts, a "US-EU trade war looms", which could result in a worldwide economic depression reminiscent of that touched off by the protectionist Smoot-Hawley Act.

It's not just a culture of corruption. It's a culture of corruption and stupidity. And, unlike Republicans, Democrats appear to be above the law. All of the aforementioned clowns are still in office, ruling like the royalty they've become.

Update: Neptunus Lex has details on serial tax cheats mistake-makers Geithner and Daschle.

Who is running the VA shop? A bunch of Monkeys?

Tom's Journal.

Well, there is a 'P.S.' to yesterday's rant about the Milwaukee VA Pharmacy problem, of course. I called them again today and was 'super cordial' to 'Debbie' and she said that the meds were to arrive at my house on next Tuesday-- 4 days latter than scheduled-thenthey should have been-- BUT, I could drive the 30 miles thru congested ghetto traffic and pick them up myself on this Friday. I pleasantly said that 'I would do just that, thank you'... click. Let me see now, this has to be the 12th time I went thru this kind of crap in the past 12 months after THEY dropped the ball. I told my wife that I really didn't want to fight with them today and I thanked them [for screwing]. It's good and humorous that I can laugh at it now...Ha Ha Ha. Never mind, for the present, that my letter to the Congressman is working itself thru the mail system [smile].

Don't think it hasn't crossed out scheming little combat Veterans' minds that the VA probably calculates that some of us suffer heart attacks and strokes from all out constant strife, fights and frustrations with the VA staff bums... lol, so that they can save millions of dollars? But then, having been in Finance and Investments, I KNOW that the IRS produces the same effect [for the common man who is NOT well connected in D.C.] on many people. I have heard the figure put at HUNDREDS of poor people in the greater Milwaukee area. But Charlie Rangel need not worry...

A close Christian friend and fellow Journalist told me that I might be better off if I refrain from posting conservative 'sensitive' articles about abortion, Gay and Constitution issues that are hotly contended in the "News Media" now days, and it's almost impossible to escape the Web Site's prying eyes-- 'Big Brother' thingy. Suffice it to say that I was actually typing, writing, and printing letters on my own and handing them out door to door concerning the hot issue: Eminent Domain in our little one horse town of Union Grove, WI, 2 years ago and got PUBLISHED in the Racine, WI Journal [News Paper] that really grabbed hold in the 'grass roots' of our town that actually REVERSED what the crooked 'village fathers' planned to screw us over and steal our private property for a stupid idea,for a supposed higher 'tax base', thanks to that dumb, Liberal lady Supreme Justice, Sandra Day O'Connor [sp?]. Well, then, the different states including ours quickly passed better Eminent Domain laws that protected the citizens after that. People say that I was somewhat responsible for that Victory.

Let me tell you something. It usually takes a crazy combat Veteran to train the sheep how to fight back for their Constitutional, God-given RIGHTS! Hey, I am no hero, and I honestly believe that I am not long for this earth, but... God saved my life many times from certain death for SOME REASON...!

I also have an incredible sense of smell that detect things from far away. But that too can be a powerful "trigger" that can awaken some PTSD issues, in a heart beat. Go figure: God made our human brains so capable-- and some experts say that when we die we might have used about 1 or 2% of it. Genesis teaches us that the man was created to live FOREVER! Sin intervened. And to see and hear about young kids sniffing glue and paint to make idiots out of themselves and burdens to the rest of society. Shame--Waste. But then, we are not robots, but free moral agents that can choose bad or good. Without a loving but firm Mom and Dad teaching us, how can we learn. Seems to me that the Lefty Libby Dems want to bust up the, One Man- One Woman Marriage traditional arrangement set up by God in Genesis, and instead give 'Ted and Ed' a shot at it... lol. What if that were true in Japan, Italy and some other nations that are running out of their own 'natives' to re-populate? Hey, I know, the Dems want to import monkeys, Just kidding... only a joke.

Bobby Rush: bringing Chicago's crime-fighting success to your 'hood

This is Congressman Bobby Rush (D-IL). He represents the First Congressional District of Illinois.

The First District is located in and around the city of Chicago.

It is one of 19 Congressional districts in the state.

Chicago is one of the most crime-ridden and violent cities in the United States.

While other large cities like New York City and Los Angeles have seen violent crimes decrease, Chicago has experienced the opposite. In 2008, 510 murders were recorded, a rise of nearly 15% from the previous year.

Nearly all of the murders were gun crimes. But how could that be? The state of Illinois has arguably the most restrictive gun laws in the Union. Don't criminals abide by the law?

And Chicago's gun laws are even more restrictive. Chicago requires "that all firearms be registered with the local police department [and] does not allow the registration of handguns, which has the effect of outlawing their possession."

Despite the longstanding bans (in place since 1982), Chicago's gun crimes continue to run wild.

So what does Rep. Bobby Rush do? You guessed it: he intends to replicate Chicago's success in the rest of the United States by setting the stage for a federal gun ban.

H.R. 45, which Rush recently introduced, is the Democrats' first step at a total gun ban, a blatant and direct violation of the Second Amendment.

It requires the Attorney General to register every gun owner and every gun transfer using an onerous and complex application process. It bans transfers among private parties. It requires fingerprints, safety tests, fees, mental health records and much, much more.

If a gun owner does satisfy the licensing process, regulations describe the penalties for failing to report a loss or theft, a change of address, and other "crimes".

Put simply, Congressman Rush -- an uber-liberal with a horrific record of idiotic decisions -- plans on bringing Chicago's crime-fighting success to your neighborhood.

Plan accordingly.
