Money for Nothing - Rockers, Politicians and Lobbyists

Mark Knopfler
Mark Knopfler

I was driving home and listening to C-Span and they were talking about heath care and reform. Also discussed was  the Medicare Part D, prescription drug plans. I am in that plan and medicare also. Callers talked about the pros  and cons of these plans. Politicians and lobbyists were mentioned. And how much these leeches earn.  Also discussed in another segment was how politicians take our  money and give it to their buddies,  like how Harry Reid gave Mary Landrieu  $300 million. 
And for some reason I thought about Dire Straits and their hit Money for Nothing.
 Please read the lyrics and you will see how the words can be applied to our friends in Washington, politicians and lobbyists et al.  I made bold the words that add clarity to my analogy.

Below are the lyrics of Money for Nothing - I took out the verses that repeat.

 Now look at them yo-yo's, that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the M.T.V.
That ain't working, that's the way you do it
Money for nothing and your chicks for free

Now that ain't working, that's the way you do it
Let me tell you them guys ain't dumb
Maybe get a blister on your little finger
Baby get a blister on your thumb

We got to install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators
We got to move these colour T.V.'s

The little faggot with the earring and the makeup
Yeah buddy, that's his own hair
That little faggot got his own jet airplane
That little faggot he's a millionaire

Look at that, look at that
I should have learned to play the guitar
I should have learned to play them drums
Look at that mama, she got it sticking in the camera
Man we can have some
And he's up there, what's that? Hawaiian noises?
Banging on the bongos like a chimpanzee
Oh, that ain't working, that's the way you do it
Get your money for nothing get your chicks for free

Listen here
Now that ain't working, that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the M.T.V.
That ain't working, that's the way you do it
Money for nothing and your chicks for free
Money for nothing and chicks for free

Get your money for nothing, get your chicks for free
Money for nothing, chicks for free

Look at that, look at that
Get your money for nothing, get your chicks for free (I want my, I want my, I want my M.T.V.)
Money for nothing and chicks for free
Easy, easy

That ain't working  !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

New War Tax for the Wealthy and Probably the Rest of Us

Labor Secretary Solis testifies on labor issues to House Committee in Washington

"Rep. David Obey, a Wisconsin Democrat and the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, is the latest lawmaker to call for a new tax aimed at the rich to pay for a troop increase in Afghanistan."

 The additional tax  would apply to those making more than $200,000 or $250,000. But don't hold your breath, we all will be next.  More taxes, are coming.  And this weak administration, continues to blame Bush.
White House Budget Director Peter Orszag has estimated that each additional soldier in Afghanistan could cost $1 million, for a total that could reach $40 billion if 40,000 more troops are added.
This cannot be right, just more legal stealing by the government.  Trying to get money they do not deserve.

If you have a job, just send in your pay check  to the IRS, they get most of it already. Then give away what you own, and go on welfare.  You'll get free heath care, now, not in 2012.  Free food stamps. Free clothes for kids, and maybe day care. Maybe  Federal subsidized apartment payments. You may qualify for your local utility to pay for some of your electricity and heat.  Contact ACORN, they know more tricks than I do.

Obama and the Congress can cut spending, but no,  they want to tax the rich.  I  guess its  easier for them.

But there will be a price to pay. This move could cost Obama his next election.
Washington officials do not always pay their taxes.

 But they have the gall to ask us to pay an additional tax.  What an outrage.

Obama: People Could Lose Confidence and Lead to a Double-dip Recession

 While President Obama was in China he made these points:

 In an interview with Fox News:
"The United States' climbing national debt could drag the country into a "double-dip recession," President Obama warned in an interview with Fox News Wednesday from China, though he said he's still considering additional tax incentives for businesses to reverse the rising unemployment rate. "

"I think it is important, though, to recognize if we keep on adding to the debt, even in the midst of this recovery, that at some point, people could lose confidence in the U.S. economy in a way that could actually lead to a double-dip recession."

"people could lose confidence"?

People have lost confidence in YOU and your administration, and your White House has not helped.

Now you are worried about confidence.  Your initiatives are all expensive.  You said Health Care reform must be deficit neutral. Is it?  Another Obama  mess.
And there is  the Obama administration’s phony stimulus claims.  The Washington Examiner has  set up an interactive map that documents instances of government exaggeration-- or lies --over how many jobs were “created or saved” by the $787 billion stimulus package.

 There is no excuse for this nonsense.  Obama is surrounded by economists and experts.  VP Biden has his own economist.  Just can't get the numbers right. They are only good at excuses.

Your campaign promises are off base too.  Too much smoke and mirrors. Distortions. 

I posted a while back and told you then that you are not in Chicago.  You are in DC, and many are watching, watching you all the time.  Non stop watching. You may be the President, but there are people out there that are going to make you "pay" politically for every mistake you make. And you make them everyday.

Why Are So Many Small Kids Murdered? American Genocide

From the www. clarionledger. com

SANFORD, N.C. — "Authorities in North Carolina say they have found the body of a 5-year-old girl who disappeared a week ago.
Searchers found the body of Shaniya Davis off a road southeast of Sanford in the central part of the state.
Two people have been charged in Shaniya's disappearance, including her 25-year-old mother, Antoinette Davis. Police have charged Davis with human trafficking and felony child abuse, saying Shaniya was offered for prostitution. Davis is due in court Monday afternoon.Authorities have also charged 29-year old Mario Andrette McNeill, who was seen in surveillance footage carrying Shaniya at a Sanford hotel.
Shaniya's mother reported her missing last Tuesday."

 Please look at this beautiful child.  She is gone now. A little life taken away, taken from us. That should not happen but it does all too often. She will not grow up and have a life.  Her life has been taken. She is gone now.
She will not laugh anymore.  Or cry anymore.  No more play time. She is gone now.

This hurts  to write about  this child,  who just had a start on life, and then her life was ended.  I do not understand why small kids are killed and abused so terribly.  Just makes no sense. 

Still think the death penalty for murder is not right?  I hope justice comes quickly for this little girl.

Washington Post's Dana Priest thinks Nidal Malik Hasan was not Crazy, maybe Odd?

China Holds Annual National People's Congress, China's Parliament


Follow the link below to watch this sickening commentary.;contentBody

On Sunday, Face the Nation: Bob Schieffer spoke with Washington Post's Dana Priest.    
about Roundtable On Afghanistan, Ft. Hood.

This was a truly pathetic interview. 
She gave Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan  literally dozens of passes. Pass after pass after pass.  This was sickening.
She painted a very sweet picture of this terrorist.

 Ms. Priest said he was a medical doctor and did not have the same treats as a infantry soldier.
She said Hasan was intelligent and soft spoken, who had no indication of violence.
The red lights (flags) came after the fact.
She said Hasan had a fascination with Muslims who had religious conflicts and  was trying to figure out what to do with these people, perhaps they should be classified as conscientious objectors.

While Hasan was at Walter Reed-
Priest made a reference to doctors who worked with Hasan.  "I don't think they (the doctors) thought he was crazy - maybe very odd."    ODD?   Your shoot and kill 13 + 1 baby its moms womb, you wound 31 some people, and you call this ODD?


Dana Priest you are Odd.  And you should be ashamed, not once did you mention the fallen victims  of this horrific crime, an act of a terrorist.

We Need A Better Count of Fort Hood Fallen Heroes

The news has reported the number of killed heroes at Fort Hood is 13. Its should be 14.
Special thanks to Michelle Malkin for bringing this info to our attention.
"Francheska Velez was a 21-year-old woman, shot to death by Major Nidal Hssan at Fort Hood Army Base. Thirteen others were slain also.
Nine weeks into her pregnancy, Army Private Velez had just called her cousin in Chicago on Thursday to say how excited she was about the child growing inside her. By night, she and her child were both dead, bringing the death toll at Fort Hood to 14 total. Not 13."

There are people who think the unborn child should not be counted.  You are entitled to you opinion.  But I say you are cold and wrong. That's my opinion.

Dodd Would Create 3 New Agencies

Senate Banking Chair Dodd Discusses Priorities Of Next Congress

Chris Dodd, Senate Committee Chaiman on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs

Sen. Chris Dodd wants to enact far-reaching Senate proposal to overhaul the financial system that would create three new agencies.  This move would  eliminate existing ones, to monitor risky bank practices and protect consumers. Where is the money coming from Mr. Dodd?

"This is not a time for timidity in this area. This is a time for some sweeping and bold changes," Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., said Tuesday. "It's been a long time coming."

Dodd says "This is a time for some sweeping and bold changes."

I have some sweeping and  bold changes-

Lets start by having Connecticut vote Chris Dodd  out of office.
Then  have California vote Nancy Pelosi out.
Then Nevada can vote out Harry Reid.
Then Maryland can say bye to Steny Hoyer.
Massachusetts can get rid of Barney Frank.

This will be a good start. If we can do this, the bulk of the trouble will be gone and the air will be a little fresher in DC.

Millions in Stimulus Funds to Aid Foreign Companies

Tasmania Goes Green For Eco Tourism

Sen. Schumer rallies with supporters of Judge Sotomayor on Capitol Hill in Washington
        Senator Charles Schumer

_______________________________________________________________________ - November 09, 2009 Senator Charles Schumer, New York, Democrate, wrote a letter to Energy Secretary Steven Chu urging him to deny stimulus funding to a Texas wind farm that would rely on wind turbines made in China. Its been reported that $849 million in U.S. grants have gone to foreign wind turbine companies in the past two months alone. The $1.5 billion project would create up to 3,000 jobs in China but according to one report only 330 jobs in the United States, most of which would be temporary. ________________________________________________________________________________
There are American companies that make turbines,
General Electric (NYSE: GE) and Siemens AG (NYSE: SI) are two.

Why would our stimulus money be used to fund foreign companies?   All stimulus money should be used for American enterprises and projects,  and American jobs.
What is happening to our country?

Fort Hood - Another American Tragedy

Thirteen Dead In Mass Shooting At Fort Hood

Things like mass shootings are not suppose to happen in America at an Army base. But they do.
 To all that lost their lives and were injured, we are very sorry.  To the families and friends of these brave Americans we are sorry, and please be strong during this very difficult time.  God Bless you all.
From FOX News Friday, November 06, 2009

"An Army psychiatrist who reportedly feared an impending war deployment is in custody as the sole suspect in a shooting rampage at Fort Hood in Texas that left 12 dead and 31 wounded, an Army official said Thursday night."
Major Malik Nadal Hasan, from Virginia, has been identified as the primary shooter.

 From the Telegraph in the UK--

Major Nidal Malik Hasan worshipped at a mosque led by a radical imam said to be a "spiritual adviser" to three of the hijackers who attacked America on Sept 11, 2001.

 This doctor needed a doctor.
  Seems like a lot was know about this guy, except by the Army.

Congressional Budget Office Heath Care Bill = $1.2 trillion or more over a decade

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has referred repeatedly to the bill’s net cost of $894 billion over a decade for coverage. Republicans put the cost of the bill at nearly $1.3 trillion.

“Our goal is to make it as difficult as possible for’’ Democrats to pass it, House Republican leader John Boehner of Ohio said at a news conference. “We believe it is the wrong prescription.’’
 They just cannot get it right.
Obama says one thing, Pelosi says something else.  This is all bull crap.  Shape up Washington, this bill is too big for you, you have proved you cannot handle it all.  YOU have made another MESS.

You are showing America, every day - you do not know what you are doing. Business as usual.  

You will not learn, so some of you will be asked to leave, when you run for office again.
  Santa Claus is coming to town - he is making a  list and checking it twice.

Rush Limbaugh Rushes to Judgement

Rush Limbaugh

On Sunday, Chris Wallace from Fox News interviewed talk radio host Rush Limbaugh.  Limbaugh was very critical of the President.
Highlights of the interview included:
  Rush said Obama was immature, inexperienced and was in over his head.
He said Obama’s swift rise to the White House after “a five-minute career” makes him a “man-child president.”
I think he’s got an out-of-this-world ego. He’s very narcissistic.
Limbaugh belittled Obama’s surprise, middle-of-the-night trip last week to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to observe the return of 18 flag-covered cases holding the remains of Americans killed in Afghanistan. “It was a photo op” designed to “create the impression that he has all of this great concern,” he contended.
David Axelrod, said in response Limbaugh's comments.  “I think it’s a surreal day when you’re getting lectures on humility from Rush Limbaugh. ... The fact is that he is an entertainer. The president has to run the country,” Axelrod said. “We walked into a difficult situation. I think [Obama’s] handling it very, very well. And most people believe that,” he added.
 “There’s no surprise that Rush Limbaugh espouses the views that he espouses. ... He’s marketing the outrageous. But as I said, he’s an entertainer. We’ve got bigger responsibilities.”
 _________________________________________________________________________________  "The President has to run the country."  Boy you would never know it.

"We’ve got bigger responsibilities."  Like Obama going to New Jersey to support Jon Corzine for the Governor race.

Why didn't David Axelrod  say of Limbaughs' comment, "you lie" ?  Because Alexrod couldn't. The truth hurts, but that's the way it is.

Here is some advise for this pathetic White House - Pick your fights wisely.
