    Yes, I will Say It. There is Nothing Wrong With Governor’s Romney “Secret” Video Statements 

    There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what.

    And, I mean, the president starts off with 48, 49 [percent], he starts with a huge number. These are people who pay no income tax. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low taxes doesn’t connect. So he’ll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean, that’s what they sell every four years.

    And so my job is is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. What I have to do is convince the five to 10 percent in the center that are independents, that are thoughtful, that look at voting one way or the other depending upon, in some cases, emotion, whether they like the guy or not

    Now, he didn’t say it very tactfully, but this was never intended to go out into the public realm.  Were all of his facts correct?  No.  I don’t think all 47% (or 46.4% as CNN has pointed out) look at themselves as victims either.  Many of the people who don’t pay income tax will vote for him.  But this statement is what should be the heart and soul of this election.  Do we want smaller, more constitutionally limited government or do we want an ever-expending government that hands out as many entitlements as it can?

    This is debate we must have.  Nearly 53% of the country is paying 100% of the bills.  There is something wrong with that picture.  So to the media and to the left, I say Bring.It.On.  I want this debate.  I want  President Obama and the people on the left to answer the question about how long do they think we can sustain this?

    Don’t back down Mitt.

      It`s interesting that Jimmy Carter`s grandson is using this months` old recording as a job-search resume enhancer as well as a diversion from the false narrative of a months` old film causing the multiple consulate attacks in the middle east ! It IS a diversion from Obama`s failed policies in that region as well as his spiking the “I killed Bin Laden” football every chance he and the dems could find !

      Today`s topic on the local radio talk show was, “Does this recording doom Romney`s campaign ?” It`s a false narrative, much ado about nothing, nothing but a diversion ! NO, it does not !

      I agree, jacg; Romney needs to be careful that these statements need to be made and must stay in planning meetings, not let out into the public, but he can clarify it easily, as I believe he has already done !

      I usually get an income tax refund, but I still am not automatically voting for Obama. But with that being said, I don’t think Romney’s premise is entirely faulty. He is right that he needs to speak to those folks in the middle that don’t automatically vote one way or the other.

    Quote of the Day – Rahm Emanuel Edition 

    “We`ve got two gang bangers, one standing next to a kid. Get away from that kid. Take yourself to the alley, don`t touch the children of the city of Chicago, don`t get near them. And it is about values. As I said then, Scott, who raised you? Where were you raised? And I don`t buy this case where people say they don`t have values. They do have values. They have the wrong values. Don`t come near the kids. Don’t touch them.”

    Mayor Emanuel answering a reporter on the fact that more people die in Chicago than in Afghanistan.

    A frightening stat isn’t it?  For the second time I agree with the mayor.  They have the wrong values.  But what are the causes of these wrong values?  Of course we will never know for sure, but I would venture to say it has something to do with how government behaves.

    Most of the gang violence in Chicago is by blacks.  So this is being said based only that fact.  I would like to know how many of these gang members have been raised in single families.  I would venture to say that the vast majority of them have been.  From what I have read from many gang members who are jailed or have been rehabilitated themselves, they have said that much of the allure of the gang life is a feeling of family and acceptance.  Why do they need a feeling of family?  One of the very worst things that the welfare system has done is make the black man virtually irrelevant.  Being a single mom is what gives you the best benefits, so sadly many have fallen into that trap.

    We have children being raised by single moms who are living around the poverty line.  They sometimes need to work long hours, or in some cases have substance abuse problems themselves.   They are most likely not well-educated and then we ask why they are raising children that have the wrong values.  We then add the fact that many of these young men have few to any positive male role models in their lives.  Fathers are pretty scarce in poverty-stricken areas.  A very sad state of affairs.

    This is part of the price we pay when we dependent on government to solve our problems.  The welfare entitlement programs are killing the black family and black men most especially.  We, as a society, need to wake up and realize that children growing up in single family homes and depending on government entitlements is a recipe for disaster, one that we see coming to fruition in the streets of Chicago.

      I love his outrage and shock over who raised these thugs. The same brain dead people who continue to vote for democrats and are a continual drain on all aspects of society, schools, health care and every aspect of our country’s finances. These people also get a total pass on the Obamacare tax but the working middle class who don’t have insurance are “free riders”. I want to scream when I hear the Democrats when they say the “free riders” overrun the emergency rooms and cost us more money. If you have an income, the hospitals will pursue you until you are dead to pay those bills. The welfare folks and illegals, not so much.

      • signpainterguy 3:28 PM on 07/11/2012 Permalink | Reply

        It has been my experience that clinics and hospitals will accept weekly / monthly payments and as long as you keep up those payments, they have no problem with you, nor should anyone else !

        It`s fascinating how hospitals and clinics love knowing they`re getting CASH on a predictable schedule, even in smallish amounts !

    Cry Me a River – Michigan Teacher Upset She Can’t Retire at 47 with Full Benefits 

    Yes, you read that correctly.  Terri List, a teacher in Michigan, is upset that with the new law in place she can’t retire at the age of 47 with full health benefits.  She is so upset that is ready to advise her students not to become a teacher in the state of Michigan.  You see they have to start putting in 5% of their annual income (her current salary range is between $70-80K per year).  She is being asked to contribute approx. $3750 per year over her career so that she will get full health benefits for life.  Something that very few people receive anymore.  Only the chosen few.

    She can actually retire in two years at the age of 47 and get $60K per year in retirement pay.  She would also be free to get herself another job that gives health benefits if she doesn’t want to pay for them herself.  Which at $60K she should be able to afford.  In order for her to qualify for free health benefits for life she will have to stay at her current job until the age of 60.  Her pay scale would be expected to reach $90K per year by that point.  Which of course will also increase her yearly retirement pay, it increases at 3% per year.  Which would give her an additional $39,000 per year.

    By the time I’m 60, I would have put in 43 years of service, earning a salary at the top of the pay scale. How does that save the district money? You could hire two people for the cost of one and encourage young people to join the profession. Right now, I would not recommend to my pupils to become a teacher in Michigan.”

    Boy, they start them young in Michigan.  She starting teaching at the age of 17?  I sincerely hope Ms. List isn’t a math teacher.

    “Wow. They have reached the politicians’ level of entitlement, she thinks she is entitled to retire at 47? Holy smokes. I don’t know what more to say to that. A government employee thinking that 47 is a reasonable expectation to retire shows just how deep inside their own bubble they live, insulated from the real world.”

    Leon Drolet, Chairman of Michigan Taxpayers Alliance.

    A Random Conversation with A Liberal 

    I have been under the weather as of late so I have not really posting all that much of late.  Boy, much has happened over the past week or so; where to begin. 

    I have a part-time job.  I work there for the insurance not really the paycheck.  But obviously the paycheck pays the insurance costs.  As many of you have heard JC Penney has made some major changes in the way it prices things.   The branding they are doing is saying that the marked down the prices by about 40%.  Which what they really did was price it the way things used to be priced before the public at large was brainwashed into believing that they were saving money when things said sale, or worse yet there was a coupon.  For those who still don’t get it, when a store has a coupon they use a lower mark down.  You are pretty much paying the same cost with or without a coupon, it is all in your head that you are saving money in a department store setting. 

    The truth is that the business is very slow; at least at the store that I work at.  So in order to not have the bad publicity of layoffs they have done several things.  They have cut hours for entire departments and some have no full-time employees left.  Which means the level of benefits change drastically.  For others they offered them positions that they knew full well most would not take.  The added benefit after the bad publicity is also the money that they will save on unemployment.  My hours were cut so I no longer qualify for the part-time associate insurance.  So it is pointless for me to keep the job as that is the only reason that I took it in the first place. 

    This of course has been the topic of discussion among employees as you can well imagine.   Someone who works there has a close family that live in same complex and they are dependent upon each other for daycare of their kids and the like.  Four out of the six adults work at the same place.  Not something I would think is a good idea.  But that is just me.  One just started there less than a year ago after arriving in the U.S. from another country.  He originally was going to take a position with another retailer, but then the job at Penney’s opened up.  It was a good set up for them as they could car pool.  Well he works in the department that no longer has any full-time employees.  His daughter who also works there has lost about half her hours and had her commission cut by quite a bit.  Even had they not cut her hours, her paycheck basically would have dropped in half.  She told anyone that would listen that she couldn’t work for the lesser rate and had to find another job.  Yet, she is upset that they cut her hours.  Her boss knew that she said she would be looking for another job, so doesn’t it make sense that she would be logical choice to cut the extra hours they needed?  It makes perfect sense to me.  She also feels that they owed her father a full-time position for at least year since he could have gone and worked somewhere else. 

    I was dumbfounded listening to this conversation.  I told her if they had to guarantee him a certain amount of hours for certain period of time they never would have hired him.  Did they pay him the wage he agreed to when he accepted the position?  Did they treat him fairly in the work place?  Did they put a gun to his head and force him to take that job over the other one?  Was it anyone else’s fault that you told anyone and everyone that you didn’t want to work for a lower wage? 

    This throws a wrench into my life as well.  But, oh well; that’s life.  Would I have prefered that they just laid me off so I could collect unemployment for a while and pay for Cobra while I look for something else. Sure would have, but they didn’t  They are going to cut my hours to force my hand into quitting. Is it nice?  No.  Is it legal?  It sure is.  Would I have made a different decision if I were the head of the company?  No I would not.  Retail has very small margins to make its profit.  Most stores run in the black until very late into the fiscal year.  We are in a recession right now.  They have to spend a great deal of money to publicize and explain the new pricing to people who were used to seeing signs that said 50% off, the people who would come in and try to use 15 coupons on two items are not going to be happy that they can’t use them anymore.  They are planning on slower sales for a time I am sure.  They are doing what they have to do to keep their board and stock holders happy.  That is their corporate responsibility as a publicly traded company. 

    I then had to listen to “Only in America do they not help you get a job”.  In Europe they can’t just fire you like that.  True, they can’t.  But, the other side of that coin is the fact that on average when times are good they have higher unemployment and a more stagnant economy.  It doesn’t occur to them that finding a job in Europe is harder for that very reason.  When it is so difficult to fire someone when times are lean, they don’t hire when times are fat. 

    I ended the conversation by saying you live in a right to work state, if you don’t like it move.  You can go to one of those states that have all these laws designed to keep you employed and allow you sue to your heart’s content if you get laid off.  Just remember in those states, your taxes are generally much higher and so is the unemployment.  If you don’t like the capitalist system in America, then you should not have moved here.  You are immigrants, you could have gone to many other places around the world when you decided to leave your country, but you chose to come here.  We are a capitalist society.  You want quasi-socialism move to Greece and ask them how that is working out for them.

    • Quite Rightly 11:46 PM on 02/04/2012 Permalink | Reply

      Immigrants from socialist countries can’t seem to understand that it is precisely individual responsibility to choose wisely and well that leads to the success they crave. Blue Staters are the same: They can’t wait to move to Red States for job opportunities, low taxes, or retirement, but the minute they arrive they start preparing to vote against the very policies that made their new homes attractive options. Geesh!

    And Speaking of a Sense of Entitlement – Drunk Driver Sues Bar for Her Medical Expenses 

    Chelsea Hess, a 22-year-old from South Carolina, is suing the county and a local sports bar to cover her medical expenses after a car accident left her paralyzed.  Ms. Hess was 20 at the time of the accident.  After spending several hours in bar drinking and playing pool she got into her car to drive home without putting on her seat belt.

    Ms. Hess and her attorney have decided that this is the responsibility of the bar, the bartender, and the county.  Apparently, she bares no responsibility at all.  The court documents show that she feels that she should have carded and refused service of the alcohol, the bartender should have also known that she may have been drinking before reaching the sports bar, and then of course, they should have also realized that she was unable to drive due to her drinking.

    ‘The bartender failed to attempt to ascertain whether or not plaintiff was already impaired by alcohol consumption when she purchased the alcoholic beverage and made sale to plaintiff even though she was unable to legally purchase the alcoholic beverage, and notwithstanding the possibility that she was already impaired by alcohol consumption,

    She then follows all this up with county being responsible for the road saying it has not been properly maintained.

    ‘suddenly dropped off into a large unmaintained area on the shoulder of Alljoj Road, which caused plaintiff to lose control of her vehicle and causing her to roll the vehicle off the side of the road.’

    So let me get this straight, a woman who is legally an adult bares no responsibility for going into the bar and ordering the drinks even though it was illegal.  It is all the bartender’s fault, even when apparently they are admitting that she had been drinking before even reaching that bar.   Then she gets into her car knowing that she had been drinking and ends up driving on the shoulder of the roadway, then loses control of her car.  She crashes and because she wasn’t wearing a seat belt she was ejected from the car and her injuries have left her paralyzed for life.  But that is the fault of the county.  It has nothing to do with her own reckless behavior.  It couldn’t possibly be that her own bad choices caused this tragic accident.

    Yes, it is sad that she will spend the rest of her life in wheelchair.  That must be a difficult thing for a young person to face.  But, that doesn’t change the fact that she made some very poor choices that evening.  The county didn’t force her to drive her car, she did that all on her own.  The bartender didn’t force her to drink any of those drinks.  While I agree that bars should be vigilant about making sure that who they are serving is of age, it isn’t the sole responsibility of the bartender.

    It seems that young woman didn’t learn a great deal from almost dying.  She made choices.  Very bad choices.  She has to learn to live with consequences of those choices and stop putting the blame on others.  Her life is not over.  She can do many great things with her life while in that wheelchair.  It is high time that she accept her fate, take responsibility for her actions, and get on with her life.

    Boy, do we need tort reform.

    Corporate Responsibility, Personal Responsibility, Nike, and Michael Jordan 

    We have all heard the stories of the near riots that occurred when Nike released a new version of Air Jordan sneakers several days before Christmas.  There were arrests, damage to stores, toddlers left in cars, and pepper spray all brought out while the frenzy to be one of the lucky ones who got a pair.  Sneakers that are now on sale on Ebay for almost double the original cost.

    Activists in the Houston area have asked the Michael Jordan and Nike take responsibility for the violence that occurred when they went on sale and the violence that has occurred to those who have a pair.

    “It is the responsibility of Michael Jordan and Nike to stand up and be part of the solution. Right now it’s a public safety issue with children wearing those sneakers,”

    “The people that can least afford these shoes are buying them, and what happens as a result of that? Well there’s more crime,”

    So, it is Nike and Michael Jordan who are responsible for the violence?

    I have had pretty strong opinions on Micheal Jordan during his entire career.  As a lifelong long-suffering Knicks fan, Michael Jordan and his Bulls team was nothing but a source of disappointment for me.  But above and beyond the fact that the Knicks could never get past the Bulls and go onto to win a title one of the things that always did annoy about Michael Jordan was his insistence of saying nothing no matter what was going on.  When asked about endorsing a political candidate running against the sitting republican senator of his home state his response was:

    “Republicans buy sneakers, too.”

    Jordan made millions and possibly billions from endorsements.  His life has always seemed to be about the conquest and the next thing.  Some call that arrogant, I have always preferred to look at as the “eye of the tiger” if you will.  He always maintained an edge that made him better and more competitive.  His juices for the next title, the next trophy, the next accomplishment kept him at the top of his game for the majority of his basketball career.  He made very few errors until the very end of career  and once he went to the management side of things.  He has every right to go out and make money.  I believe in capitalism so have at it.  But I, for one, have always been disappointed that they he didn’t take some stands on important issues.  Such as child labor in China, the breakdown of the black family (while since it has come out that he had more than one affair while he was married, that could be part of the reason) as he had an image of a family man, who grew up in a close family, and many other issues.  But he always kept his mouth shut and picked up his next check.  The same was true of Tiger Woods.

    I am not a believer in parents sitting back while their children idolize some sports or music star.  We should be showing our children the real heroes in our society, first responders who put their lives on the line to protect their communities, our volunteer military who willing go off to war to protect our rights, the people who work at shelters and food banks to help the neediest amongst us for little pay, and countless others who get up everyday and just try to do the right thing.  Parents should be living a life that their children will be proud to follow as they grow and mature.

    But we have become a culture of entitlement.  One of the activists said himself that the people who can afford them the least are the ones buying them.  A Black Panther is saying that Nike is responsible for the thefts that are occurring to the people who lucky enough to get a pair of these sneakers.  Another said this:

    “These shoes have always had a place of value in Black life,”

    Maybe instead of going after Nike to lower the price to keep up with the demand (I will let go of that obvious ignorance of how economics work) they should be having the discussion with parents of the kids who were rioting.  They should be talking to the kids themselves about coveting a pair of sneakers instead of looking at what the Christmas season is really about.  Maybe we should be telling these kids that expecting your parents to spend almost $200 on a pair of sneakers when they don’t have a great deal of money isn’t such a great idea.  Take this moment to teach them about personal responsibility instead of what we want and when we want it.  Let this be a teachable moment about how if we really want something we need to go out and work for it.  No, instead they are saying that Nike should lower the price.  How low should the price be?  Should Nike also give some away at no charge for the neediest of people because after all these shoes are part of “black life”.  What about the non blacks who want these shoes too and can’t afford them?

    While I would love to see Michael Jordan take a real stand for once, the truth is, this isn’t his responsibility.  This is the responsibility of the care givers of these children and young adults who caused all the mayhem last week.  It is up to the individual to act in a responsible manner, not some athlete who hasn’t been on the scene in more than decade.

    • SignPainterGuy 11:43 PM on 12/29/2011 Permalink | Reply

      According to a story I heard on radio while driving to my Sister`s for Christmas I heard about the release of these sneakers, the price and the riots. In Atlanta, anxious crowds ripped the storefront doors off the hinges to get inside. Someone fired at least one shot in the air to repel another customer from getting “his” shoes.

      For cryin` out loud, all that stupidity for a pair of Butt-ugly sneakers that (sorry jacg) weren`t any new style, but retro models of shoes originally released back in MJ`s prime !

      You are exactly right, the responsibility for this misdirection of want and violence falls on these individuals and their care givers / parents, not any bb star or any corporation !

    American Girl and Entitlement 

    Today, I had to take a 10-year-old to a birthday party as mom was home with a sick toddler.  The party was at the store American Girl.  For those that are not aware of the American Girl, it is quite the store.  There are nine stores around the country, six of which are considered boutique stores, while three are the larger flagship stores. 

    American Girl originally started by Pleasant Company was only mail order.  Mattel purchased the company back in 98 and proceeded to grow the line and open the stores.  The marketing at this store is brilliant.  As a person who has a master’s degree in Marketing I find it fascinating and awe-inspiring.  Who ever came up with the concept deserves the many millions that they will make off of this venture.   Simply stunning job in marketing the store. They sell clothes for your daughters that match the clothes for the dolls.  Every imaginable type of accessory is available, diaper changing stations, eye glasses in a variety of colors so your daughter can find ones that match hers, hair brushes, and on and on it goes. 

    For those who are not aware the dolls are sold with an accompanying book and mostly depict a time in American history.  The girl of the year for 11 is Kanani, a native of Hawaii.  Molly is the only original doll that is still available through the stores or online.  Molly is a young girl living through World War II, and waiting for her daddy to return home from war.  There is also Kit (from Kit Kittredge fame) who is growing up during the depression and watched her family lose everything and learns to realize that money isn’t everything.  Many of the dolls have a very good theme and reading is heavily emphasized.  I picked up a few of the books in the store and was happy to see that they had some very constructive advice for tweens who are online. 

    But there are many problems with these stores as well.  The dolls are marketed to girls 8 and over.  Now, I have not lived through watching a little girl grow up and so I don’t know when little girls really stop playing with dolls.  But, I do seem to remember that was about the age that I started losing interest in dolls, and I was a HUGE fan of dolls.  I have so many good memories of playing my baby dolls and my Barbie’s.  I had the whole line of Barbie items; the townhouse, the corvette, the big Barbie head so you could play hairdresser, and so on.  I loved my dolls and they were very well-worn out by the time I was done with them. 

    The party I attended today was for girls aged 9 – 11.  Every girl was given a party hat, a doll, choice of one accessory item, and a party hat for the doll.  The dolls were also treated to the hair salon (yes, you read that correctly there is a doll hair salon complete with little capes that are put around the dolls while they are getting their hair braided or curled).  It was quite the day.  The girls seemed to enjoy the store and enjoyed the party luncheon and cake that came with the party.  They all had plenty of pictures taken.  I was thinking that this party must have been quite expensive, so I looked around the store more closely.  Every doll in the place costs at least $100.  That does include the story of the doll as well.  The accessories were sold separately and range from $8 to $24.  The birthday girl got two dolls and a stroller to push her dolls around in.  She turned 11 today.  Maybe I am wrong, but I am thinking she won’t be pushing that stroller around the mall anytime soon.  This party was about entitlement. 

    The little girls felt important being at that store.  Especially since it was made clear to them how lucky they were to live locally to one of the stores.  That was mentioned while we were outside on the patio putting the dolls in the high chairs that the store provides for them.  Like I said, it was quite the party.  There were 12 girls at this party (two were the birthday girl’s sisters).  This party had to have cost three or four thousand dollars.  Plus she then received gifts on top of this. 

    Did this mother ever stop and realize that the parents of the little girls that went to this party would never be able to afford to throw such a party themselves, which could become an issue when their birthday’s coming rolling around over the next year?  I realize that I live in area where money is not much of a problem for many.  But, this was such a blatant display of it that it really shocked me.  

    Isn’t this just one more display of how we are teaching our children to expect things?  Now, the little girl that I took to the party is lucky that she was given a doll at the party, because I can guarantee you her mother won’t be buying her one.  It isn’t about the money so much as it is the need for an 11-year-old to have a doll at that price.  Maybe I am wrong, but to me going to the store and the prestige of having the doll is what the girls want more than the doll itself.  It is purely an image thing.  It is sort of like the Air Jordans were to my generation.  It wasn’t that the sneaker was all that much nicer than the ones that were half the price, you just wanted to “be like Mike”. 

    Like I said there are many things about the store that I really like.  It promotes reading, it promotes patriotism, and it gives out some sound advice to tweens about the dangers in the world that they face.  But it is directly marketing to girls that are probably a little too old for playing with dolls and a little too young to understand the worth of the keeping the doll in pristine condition for collecting. 

    Much to my chagrin, my little friend chose Julie as her doll.  Julie is from San Francisco in the early 70’s.  She works to save the environment and to promote women’s lib.  Looks like I have some work to do with that one!!  But, I have never seen her play with a doll ever, so I relatively certain it will be an expensive dust collector that sits on her bed. 

    See the website for yourself and let me know what you think. 

    I personally believe that the mother who threw this party better be picking out the kind of car she wants her daughter to have, because she will be expecting it in the driveway five years from today.   And she has no one else to blame than herself for her daughter thinking that way.

      My grand-daughters were thrilled by being given a visit to the store in New York City as a gift. They would never even think of having that much money spent on a toy. They have gotten some of the books from the library and enjoyed them.

        They are being raised right then. Good for your son/daughter. There is no reason on God’s green earth that a young child should have a doll that costs that much money. It just sets them up for the disappointment later when they realize that they can’t have everything that they want.
