Washington Speak

Investments:

The spending of money for special projects such as, increase federal government control over the local school systems, special interests and friends of Washington. The Government controlled schools must invest more because the government controlled school program is currently failing.

Spending Cuts:

Lower the amount of increase of tax funds; an example of this: department “A” had a budget of $600,000,000.00 in 2010 with an expected increase in the budget of $145,000,000.00. Instead of increasing the budget to that amount, they only increase it to $140,000,000.00. This is a cut in spending, even though the congress is now spending $740,000,000.00. In the real world, the $600,000,000.00 would be cut to a lower amount, but in Washington nothing is ever actually cut.

Cost to government:

All money is the property of Washington and if you are allowed to keep a little more of it, then it cost the government. Although you might like to think this is your hard earned money, Washington sees this as an act of compassion to allow you to keep some of their money.

Balanced Budget:

Increase taxes to lower the amounts which need to be borrowed. The idea of actually cutting spending in Washington has never entered their minds.

Spending Freeze:

Return the budget to a previous amount. This is used only after Washington has increased spending beyond amounts absolutely necessary to please their campaign contributors and special interests groups.

Election Losses:

If the losses are republican, this means the people are unhappy with the work the republicans have done. If the losses are democrat, this means the electorate wants the republicans to start working with democrats.

Bi-partisan:

Do what the democrats want and stop fighting for what you want.

Leftwing:

Government control over everything now.

Rightwing:

Government control over everything later.

Tea Party:

Left look at them as terrorist, the Right looks at them as power.

Cooperation: Do what we want; forget what we did to you last year.

Reinvent: Give more powers to Washington.

Redistribute tax breaks:

Tax oil companies forcing gas prices to rise while pass Cap & trade to cause energy prices to even go higher in an effort to focus on electric cars.

For the children:

Any spending that gives Washington more power but is not popular with the voters and tax payers.

Immigration reform:

Give criminals citizenship

Illegal Immigrant:

No such thing.

Spending tax breaks & loop holes:

Tax reform simplified: how much to do make, send it in.

Health reform:

Spend a minimum of $2 trillion or $250 billion, they chose to spend $2 Trillion.

Online medical records:

Better access by the government to make decisions once the government takes 100% control.

Border security:

What boarder security? There is none.

Economic reform:

Complete government control by politicians. So they can decide who wins and who loses.

In Camden N.J. today, the decision to fire some police officers over budget concerns is believed to be the correct move by local officials. Firing a librarian or secretary or two could have saved just as much money without allowing the citizens to be placed in danger. But that is the intent of the Camden N.J. officials; to place the citizenry of Camden N.J. in jeopardy so when they raise taxes the people will not fight about it.

Did the local administration take a pay cut, no. CNN reported today that nearly half of the city’s police officers were releases along with almost one third of the fire departments. This is a maneuver that has been used by many local governments to persuade the citizens to shut up and do what they are told. Did they cut back on the tax assessor’s office, not to my knowledge they did not. Did they reduce the road crews and janitors; I have not found one instance were any “nonessential” personnel had even taken a pay cut, but that is not to say they did or didn’t.

The only cuts were the very ones the government are actually organized to supply; all of the other wasteful spending keeps going. The duty of our government is to collect taxes, provide for our defense and guarantee our US and state constitutional rights. But what they do instead is endanger the people, release prisoners, close prisons, fire police officers and fire department personnel. Do they cut out the private coffee machine in the administrative offices? Do they cut the Mayor’s pay? Do they reduce the two hundred thousand dollars a year pay to the education administrator?

Nope, all they cut are the very duties for which are the main purposes of government; all in an effort to force the citizenry to shut the hell up and fork out more money. It is not any simpler than that, but most people do not look at it that way. Most of the citizens believe it is better to have the library open than to have police; they believe that bridge next to some important campaign contributor is more important than some poor soul’s home burning down.

Look at what our governments have become, tax and spend-a-holics, special funds for special people. I will say this one more time and this time I hope others hear, until we fire every single person in the state capitals and in Washington DC, nothing will ever get better; we will just stay on this course until the US Dollar becomes worthless. When the US Dollar is no longer the international exchange currency, you will wish for the days when gasoline was only $5 a gallon.
