One Paratroopers Opinion

My daughter has a Blog and told me I should get one. In fact, she said I already had one. Well, I don't like the name Blog so I changed it to Blob which rhymes with slob and as I am somewhat of a slob that sounded just right!

Someone asked, through the comments page, for my Testimony so HERE it is!

May 28, 2011



A long, long time ago I took a High School course on salesmanship. The teacher pointed out that each sale made is really a vote for or against that product. Different products had different advantages. The teacher also said there always was a finite amount of money to be spent on that product. That is, if you have $100.00 to spend you could buy one item priced at $100 or two $50 items or four $25 items. You can't buy three $25 items and a $50 item because you DON"T have $125, you only have $100.

It all comes down to the rather rotten fact that we can only buy what we have money for and once we spend that money we have to stop buying. If we buy something we are voting for that particular product or service.

We vote like this all the time. I can eat at Red Lobster once for $20 or I can eat at McDonald's twice for $10 each time. Also, once I have eaten (spent my money) I can't eat again till I earn or borrow more money and that is the key point. This is true for an individual and it is true for a nation.

That is now where we are as a nation. We have over spent and borrowed too much. The bill is now starting to come due. I say starting because we can still pull out of the mess both the Democrats and Republicans have gotten us into. We just have to STOP all the over spending and I do have a plan. Whether I like it or agree with it or not, some people really want to help just everybody even when it is their own stupid actions that got them into the mess they are in. Whether they like it or agree with it or not, some people (like me!) do not want to pay to bale out every bum that drank or foolishly spent all their money. Either way you think, we still have to live together. We still have to deal with the fact that we are broke and our credit cards are charged to the limit.

So what is the cure? Obviously, spend less money. How do we do that? Simple. Make an across the board cuts of 5% on ALL government spending for this year. Same again next year and each following year until we balance the budget. That means ALL government spending. Military, Social Security, Medicaid, all paychecks, all benefits, All of it. Everything.

If we do not, these programs will simply peter to a stop. Do you remember the Berlin Wall? The fall of the Soviet Union? They simply ran out of money. It will happen to us too. They ran out because of heavy, military overspending. We, being Americans, had to out do them so we overspent in BOTH Military AND Social programs. The bill is now coming due. If we cut Government spending now there is still time for the economy to turn around. If we don't... what do you think will happen?

My daughter has a laptop computer that was giving her problems. Every once in a while it would stop and a box would come up and tell her the computer was out of disk space. The problem was getting worse and worse. I checked and she had many, many megabits of music files on here C drive. I removed them and guess what? The computer worked just fine again. If we had done nothing the computer would have finally stopped working. If we do nothing, as our Dear Leader President Obama is doing nothing, we will fail. I mean come on folks, we don't even have a budget let alone a plan for cutting it.

I'm 61 years old. I have kind of a vested interest in seeing that these programs keep going. We can take a small hit now and make it or stick our collective heads up our fourth point of contact. It's your choice... choose wisely come 2012.

OK, How do I say this without being offensive. I am really interested in what you say but I don't give a flying passage of gas in a hot place about what you think!

WOW, what does that mean? Simply this. I am interested in what you say about the things I say and you can tell the truth to me because you can't offend me. That is because I don't care about what you think of me! You can FLAME me, Rant and Rave, say you love me or say you hate me, it's all the same to me!

I am interested in how you come to whatever opinion you have, why you say what you say. Lately, I keep hearing and reading about people who say they HATE, absolutely HATE Palin, Beck, O'Reilly, Fox, ETC. They are just liar, liar pants on fire. However, they never seem to be able to give proof or at least some kind of reason for what they say. I gave you reasons why I feel as I do so if you disagree with me can you give me some reason why?

So there you go. Tell me what you think. I promise to read what you say but I will not write back because I don't care what you think. I only care about what you say!

One last thing. This is for comments on my Blobs only. No motorcycle questions because I'm not writing back from this E-Mail address. OK?

If you have motorcycle questions click the motorcycle and follow my rules.

The Next One Is Coming Soon!
