March Madness Brings April Hope That Bankers Will Get It Together

obama basketballI am a more of a football kind of guy and plan on making football a large part of upcoming installments of my "Obama Taco Underwear" Painting Series", especially once the 2009 season starts, but in the spirit of bi-sportisan unity and to somewhat emulate our great basketball-loving President Obama, I've been watching a few basketball games during the NCAA March Madness tournament and think the championship game between Michigan State and North Carolina should be a compelling one. Here we have two teams who represent two very important news issues in America recently. Michigan State, of course, being in East Lansing, MI, is not far from Detroit who has been suffering all sorts of woes and upheaval concerning their auto-industry which has always been vital to the American economy. North Carolina, being a major grower of tobacco in the nation, has been having to deal with price increases to cigarettes ever since Wednesday when the largest federal tobacco tax hike in history was implemented, raising the federal tax from .39 cents to $1.01. Being a smoker who has long wanted to quit, I actually welcome the tax increase, and the higher price has motivated me to set a date for finally quitting soon. All revenue from the tax hike go to the children's insurance program, SCHIP, and who can argue with wanting to be able to provide better medical care for kids? Oh wait, George W. Bush vetoed it once, didn't he? . . . .. . . click here to read more

Is The Obama Santa Claus Also A "Reverse Robin Hood"?

Click on pic to enlarge!
Obama as santa clausOf course there is the inevitable comparison to Barack Obama as Santa Claus. He gets that label, first of all, by his simply being a Democrat who are often criticized as givers of hand-outs to poor people who do not deserve them because they allegedly don't work hard enough. Secondly, President Obama takes office at a time when the giving of "hand-outs" is a necessary evil in turning around our economy. Strangely enough, though, this time around all the taxpayers' money is being given to people who are already rich and are in the trouble they are in because they SQUANDERED the resources of normal American taxpayers! It's a really odd situation and some might even say suspicious. Conspiracy theories abound and there are some who look at the fact that Obama and McCain were tied neck and neck in early September and it was only until the economic bubble burst and all these banks started failing and needing help when voters started to give Obama the nod. So it was the failure of the banks which got Obama elected and now that he is President he is giving the money they lost back to them using American tax dollars! It really is strange, isn't it? It is so paradoxical because we have conservatives complaining on one front about the pending tax hike on those making more than $250,000 a year and at the same time we have the REAL money being taken away from the middle class to bail-out the banks! There is all this talk about Obama being "Robin Hood" and wanting to "take from the rich and give to the poor" but if you get away from party talking points and ideology and look at what is actually HAPPENING, the exact OPPOSITE is the case. Now, I don't know of any rule or qualification or constitutional amendment that actually says that to be Santa Claus you have to give to the poor, right? I guess Obama can give to the rich and still be Santa Claus so it is all good! I am a big believer in Obama and his agenda, though, and even if things look a bit strange and uneven right now I'm sure they will all balance out in the end.

Obama Christmas Painting

obama christmas paintingThe Fat Cats on Wall Street aren't so fat anymore! All the head executives of major U.S. banks are now starving and skinny as a candy cane as they meow for help from the government to bail them out. While these greedy corporate creeps wait around to receive their funds from the Troubled Asset Relief program (TARP), President-Elect Obama has taken pity on them. While most Americans are fine with letting them jump off a cliff, Obama was charitable enough to let them jump off a cliff and into a pit of GREEN GUACAMOLE! Then after letting them feast on nothing but crushed avocadoes for awhile, on Christmas Day he and a few of his helpers volunteer to give these guys a few tacos to eat for the holidays. . . . . .. . . .. . . click here to read more
