Joe Biden Laughing
Last week, our nation’s genius Vice President Joe Biden offered a statement that alienated some of his most loyal fans.  “If I blindfolded someone and took them at 2:00 in the morning into the airport in Hong Kong and said ‘where do you think you are,’ they’d say, ‘this must be America, it’s a modern airport,’” Biden said during a speech on infrastructure in Philadelphia.

Mr. Biden had a point, though not for the reason he thinks.  The Vice President believes that the government is not spending enough money on infrastructure projects like airports, bridges and highways.  If that is the case, why not hold Old Jumpin’ Joe accountable for the taxpayer dollars which have already been put in his care?     

After all, it was he who Obama put in charge of the $872 billion stimulus package that the Democratic-controlled Congress passed in 2009.  Remember, this is a stimulus that was supposed to reinvigorate our economy while repairing and creating many of the infrastructure problems plaguing the country.

But under Joe’s direction or negligence or both, the vast majority of these funds were spent as political payoffs to Democratic donors and government grants and programs that had not been receiving or were receiving very few federal dollars.  Solyndra, which was given $590 million and was bankrupt within one year is just one of the more prominent examples of these wasted funds.  The American people have not been given an accurate audit of where exactly these funds were used.  

People on both sides of the aisle ought to agree that LaGuardia needs an overhaul. America needs interstates. The electrical grid hasn’t been upgraded in decades. Major bridges are perilously close to catastrophic failures. Sewage plants in most major cities are a few breakdowns away from total collapse. 

But the reason the federal government as well as state governments can’t maintain this critical infrastructure is because they continue to spend tax dollars in places our Founders never intended government to ever be involved.  Such massive government programs such as the New Deal, Great Society and now Obamacare are sucking money out of the Federal Treasury and ultimately out of the pockets of taxpayers.  Taxes continue to rise and yet debt continues to increase as our government continues to pay for programs that cannot be managed properly or sustained.  

Politicians at the federal and state level will continue to expand these wasteful programs at the expense of infrastructure. They have no motivation or incentive to seek responsible use of taxpayer dollars because the magic wand of the Uncle Sam will always be there to sprinkle fairy dust of funds. Elected Democrats believe that the government is and should do everything for the citizens, and are willing to curry favor with key constituencies by showering dollars into entitlements, subsidies and social welfare programs.

Republicans are simply gutless.  They are not willing to cut a majority of the programs for fear that they will be negatively stereotyped in the media and public eyes.  And that stirs the greatest fear in their mind: they just might get voted out of office. The establishment Republicans are not about curbing the growth of government; they think they can manage and run it more efficiently.

For the few conservatives willing to buck the system and dismantle the growing welfare state, men like Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, they find themselves as a small minority. Fighting the Bridge to Nowhere, the Woodstock Museum, shrimp on the treadmill, unemployment benefits to millionaires are just a few of the major pork battles that Senator Coburn has fought.  But after 20 years, even Coburn has had enough. Washington has exhausted him.  He is packing it up and returning to Oklahoma to return to his medical practice. 

If a stalwart conservative like Coburn is giving up, should the rest of us?  What are we to do? Should we just give up holding DC accountable and let them spend everything with hopes that one day we might personally benefit from their irresponsibility?

That would be a grave mistake, one that I’m convinced America won’t make.  At its core, America is not a selfish nation. Most of us want a better country for future generations.  If we bothered to educate our children and ourselves regarding the facts about heading down the path to financial ruin and foreign bailouts, it would become obvious that we’d be a heck of a lot better off with a few more Tom Coburns and a few less Joe Bidens in charge.

 

 

Comments

  1. Only those of PRIVILEGE, would even notice. Says a lot about the spoiled, worthless character, of the wealthy elite……..who do nothing but rule America.

  2. carl arasi says:

    Biden will swing along side barry! This I am sure of!

  3. What everyone seems to be missing about Joe is, he’s from up here, mining country, PA. When he talks, we always look for the crack pipe.

  4. Do not blame it on Biden, he is only his good buddies wishes. Does not excuse him but wors makes him just a political hack.

  5. To talk about Biden, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, etc, and remain civil, is an exercise in futility to me, so I’ll just not comment.

    • Gregg Weber says:

      With all those names, sounds like a lot of impeachments are needed before one gets to someone who knows something about the Constitution.

  6. Perfect, a third world President and third world Vice president for a third world infrastructure. But Bidens comments are to be expected. Obama will now push for the U.S. to have infrastructure like the cities of Europe, of course this means that no Americans can be employed doing the work since only European workers (in Obama’s opinion) can create such quality, just like the high quality website for Obama care from that great Canadian company.

  7. billwhit1357 says:

    It would be nice if that $8 Trillion, that Obama has put us in debt for, did go for infrastructure instead of furnishing weapons to Islamic Terrorists in Egypt, Syria, Sudan, Libya, and elsewhere. He prefers supporting his fellow Muslim Terrorists than help America, that has been obvious for five years now!

    • Linda Patterson says:

      Guess who the terrorists will be using those weapons against, If you don’t believe he is setting us up for a muslim take over then you need to lay off the kool aid, The man is evil to the bone and hates whites and our country and will allow the muslim’s to take over and we will live under martial law. By this time next year we will be under martial law. Wait and see.

      • billwhit1357 says:

        I agree, Linda! Obama needs to be in Gitmo, Water Boarded to find out the Truth, put on Trial for Treason, and, if found guilty, Executed on National TV! Bet it would break all rating for viewers, lol!

      It

      was you who appointed s your chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett , who is a member
      of the Muslim Sisterhood, an off shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.

      Do we really need to go on?

      Barack, you may be a lot of things; but, for certainty, you are no Christian.

      Obama,
      who refers to himself as: “A man of Africa”,
      is precisely the type of ‘divided loyalties” individual that our Founders attempted to prohibit from ascendancy to the presidency when they constructed our Constitution.

  8. Rebuilding LaGuardia Airport is not a federal issue– yes they can tap federal FAA and transport funds, but the impetus to do it must come from the local level– the loser bureaucrats that are running it into the ground……forward thinking transportation managers look 10+ years ahead and have a detailed blueprint of where they want to go — in the case of NY airports it is more complicated because there are 3 major airports spread over 2 states with competing objectives. To do it properly, there needs to be a master plan across all 3 airports in the area. One start would be a fast rail connection between all 3 airports so people could transfer efficiently between them.

  9. This guy is obama’s greatest insurance policy against an assassination and that is the only reason obama chose him to be VP. Aside from the fact that next to obama Biden is the biggest liar and idiot in DC Biden is another immoral baby killer.

    • He also is part of the impeachment calculation. Personally I think that Holder ought to go first.

  10. Maybe Coburn should go on a speaking engagement and find anyone who will listen to him. Could do “non-political” sort of things like Knights of Columbus, rotary meetings, college campuses. Maybe if people heard from someone who is in the know (and has proof to back it up) about all the pork, they would listen. The conservatives and liberals couldn’t fingerpoint and accuse him of having an agenda. He is no longer in politics, he just wants the facts out there for people to see without the slant of the media.

  11. 1NoHyphenAmerican says:

    Scary to think this moron is a heart beat away from taking over, if the other idiot is dead. Talk about frying pan into the fire!

  12. Time to audit the federal government an dmake public the findings. There is no way that much money can be unaccounted for. Where did the millions given Solyndra go?

  13. Larry Moser says:

    The only thing missing. Just wait.

  14. arnold schwertman says:

    THIRD WORLD Texas OKLAHOMA RED STATES

  15. disqus_Ki3yt4g0EM says:

    How more screwed up can our beloved nation get????????????God please HELP us!
    3 more yrs of this treasonous ilk ,

  16. Craig Case says:

    Buy a shotgun, maan….

  17. Roy Browning says:

    America, as well as most eu countries, have passed the point of failure. Britain has regulated people to such a state that the anger is boiling over making britain the most violent country in the EU and second most violent in the world.

  18. dextermassolettisr says:

    Biden, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, McConnell, Boehner and the rest of the garbage need never be reported on in the News — excerpt for their demise.
    They all put is in this sorry state we are in.
    Biden should not run for president, but for his life.

  19. Margaret Surovietz says:

    And the idiot Biden and the democrats make USA looks like 3rd world country

  20. Only one thing can be said about “Shotgun Joe”, he’s a total ahole!
