Dem’s Latest Ploy In War On Poverty: Cars For Sots?

11 05 2009

Ed Morrissey at HotAir.com follows a Boston Globe item about welfare in Massachusetts:

And here I always thought “Welfare Cadillac” was just a stupid novelty song from 1970.

Now it turns out Guy Drake’s tune is another state entitlement here in Massachusetts, compliments of the Department of Transitional Assistance, formerly known as welfare.

In Gov. Deval Patrick’s Massachusetts, if you’re on the dole, you may be eligible to get a free car. So much for the budget Armageddon they keep talking about at the State House. …

Nice enough that the layabouts get a free car – plus the state picks up the tab for insurance, excise tax, title, registration, inspection, and approved repairs. The absolute frosting on the cake is a free AAA membership.

Whoa.

Let’s investigate the “rising tide” of trickle-up possibilities.

  • Rich people will provide funding invest in a new wave of government workers, who will be needed to allocate cars to welfare recipients.
  • Newly mobilized welfare recipients will get hired by business owners (who paid for their cars).
  • Other workers will be hired because the supply of cars will increase.
  • Rinse and repeat!

Boom!

Unemployment dead!

Recession dead!

I can see it now…The 2010 GM Stimula, now with a convenient but durable sleeper for those homeless nights!

UPDATE: Leaked document says GM to sell Chinese-built cars in America.

Black Racists Go After Clarence Thomas Over Obama’s Birth Certificate

4 12 2008

1228398203clarenceobama

Funny that Clarence Thomas is the “Uncle Tom,” anti-black, racist while all the people attacking him racially, are just open-minded Obama supporters.  Click that link and go read the comments that easily contrast the devotion to each of the talented men…It’s no surprise, Obama denegrated Thomas at the Saddleback debates for being inexperienced a weak jurist.  Maybe Obama picked the wrong fight.

Here is background on the case at the Supreme Court on December 5th, 2008

Look at all this trouble Obama is causing by neglecting court orders and refusing to release any information about his qualifications.

MISSING-HIDDEN DOCUMENTS:

Original, vault copy of Certificate of Live Birth in the USA — Not Released (one version locked up in Hawaii, Original found in Kenya)

Certificate of Live Birth — Released – Proven Counterfeit (www.ObamaFiles.com and Atlasshrugs.com)

Obama/Dunham marriage license — Not released

Soetoro/Dunham marriage license — Not released

Soetoro adoption records — Not released

Fransiskus Assisi School School application — Released

Punahou School records — Not released

Selective Service Registration — Released – Proven Counterfeit

Baptism certificate — None

Medical records — Not released

Illinois State Senate records — None (Locked up to prohibit public view)

Illinois State Senate schedule — Lost (All other Illinois state senators’ records are intact)

Law practice client list — Not released

University of Chicago scholarly articles — None

HotAir.com and many conservatives think it’s all malarkey…still doesn’t explain the dearth of media coverage regarding 16 lawsuits against the President-Elect

UPDATE: Even SUPER liberal, PRAVDA, has concerns and wonders when his maternal grandmother might be taken off ice and laid to rest…

None of these lawsuits and suspicions mean as much as the fact that Obama can easily dispel all the legal actions and mistrust by simply producing a valid Birth Certificate. It matters not in the least that he has not proven his attendance at Harvard and Columbia University. It does not matter that any number of claims about his past and his experience have not been validated.  The only thing that matters is that he refuses to produce a valid Birth Certificate and instead spends thousands of dollars on attorneys and defies Federal lawsuits and State lawsuits asking him to produce one single piece of paper that most every citizen of every nation of the world has easy and rapid access to.

UPDATE: The media is starting to notice.  They’re not investigating, but they’re talking about it.

UPDATE: Malkin thinks only kooks would bite on this.

A Muslim graveyard in the heart of Mumbai has broken with Islamic tradition and refused to bury the bodies of nine terrorists who were killed during the attack on India’s financial capital.
