Flush 'em Friday the 10 14 11 Edition

Happy Flush 'em Friday everyone! It's time Flush whoever and whatever annoys, bothers or confounds you. 

Today my list is as follows...

  • David Stern, the NBA owners, the NBA players...get on with it!
  • Anyone who thinks ILLEGAL aliens should receive benefits of any kind from the USA. 
  • The "DREAM ACT" for being a nightmare for those of us who must pay for it. 
  • Governor Jerry Brown for signing in the DREAM ACT. 
  • The US Department of Education's Civil Rights Office...for taking 19 months to tell us that English-Language learners and African Americans are struggling and saying that they are not receiving the same education as whites. 19 months? How long will it take them to "find" that the Pacific Ocean touches California?
  • The US Department of Education...just for existing...what a waste of money.
  • The US Department of Education for having a Civil Rights Office...again, what a waste of money.
  • People who take up two parking spaces.
  • 50% off the second item "sales"
  • Those who like to dole out criticism but can't stand to receive any. 
  • People who micro manage...
  • The guy in line to order who doesn't think about what he wants until he gets to the counter.
That's all folks. Anyone like to add to the list?

No Tax Tuesday the 10 11 10 Edition

A co-worker of mine asked me the other day what I thought about those people protesting with "Occupy Wall Street". She also asked me if I thought "rich" people should pay their fare share of taxes.

Well, she probably thinks she is opened minded, but, just the questions pretty much tell you what she thinks.

What are the Occupy Wall Street protesters (paid or not) protesting? According to my coworkers they are protesting people making someone else's expense(?). I just wonder why liberals believe they should tell another person how much money to make or they (liberals) think they should determine how much another person deserves to earn. One answer my friend has no idea about is why the banks made bad loans to people in the first place. Weren't banks forced to loan to consumers by the government? The government tries to control the banks via regulations, bailouts and taxation manipulation, the plan fails and then the politicians that forced the banks to operate like morons blames the banks and accuses them of being greedy.

As to the notion that the "rich" should pay their "fare share" I am astounded at the ignorance of the left. First of all, no conservative believes that the rich should not pay their fair share. I have never heard any one (except maybe liberals) say that anyone should not pay taxes. What no Democrat, liberal or leftist has ever been able to tell me is how they can tax a company into growth and hiring more people. How can you take money away and expect that company to then hire more people? there anyone that can hire more people with less money? The only way is via government handouts. That's what this whole green jobs malarkey is all about. That is not a business, that is welfare.

What about No Tax Tuesday? Why should our tax dollars be spent on bailout welfare jobs?
By-the-way protesters, why not occupy the White House and ask where all the jobs are?
