Dream Act: Democrats Didn't Learn A Thing In 2010 Elections

First, they re-elect their leadership in Congress. I guess they should be given a pass on Pelosi. She's scary in a very scary Baltimore street thug way of being scary. Kinda like re-electing Chavez or any Castro.

Now they want to increase their voter base through the Dream Act using "fairness" and "reform" in the chorus of their mantra which they believe if sung very nicely that voters either will agree or be lulled by the tune. Maybe they hope that the language alone will make it not understandable. 2, 000 page of Congressian is less understandable than Opera in Italian.

The bottom line is that the Dream Act is a cynical act to create a new generation of Democrat voters who the Democrats hope to bribe with this legislation. The Dream Act is a horrible act and Democrats should be embarrassed and shamed.

They haven't learned a thing and need to be further reminded in 2012. That is if Republicans do the job they were elected to do. If they act like Democrat lite then 2012 could be a nightmare for all involved.

Pelosi Wins Or The Demise Of Democrats

Pelosi Wins Bid for Leader Despite 43 Defections

My fav line from the story:
“Barbara Lee says she’s fine with it: If she’s fine, I’m fine,” Clyburn said.
This is a win for Republicans.

Unions, Big Government Killing States Like Ohio

Americans are fleeing high tax, union-dominated states and settling in states with lower taxes, right-to-work laws and lower government spending. Nothing sends a message like voting with your feet.

People do vote with their feet and the vote here in Ohio is saying get out and go where there are jobs, less government and a right to work without coercion from "friendly" union officials.

Ohio’s state government spending increased by three times the inflation rate between 1994 and 2002. At this clip, the state government budget would double every 14 years. More importantly, this rate of growth outstrips income growth and exceeds our ability to pay for it. The result? Government spending as a share of Ohio’s economy has increased rapidly since 1980. Ohio left the ranks of low-tax states in 1994 and has been one of the highest tax states in the nation since 2000.

Ohio is a "closed shop state" which is a fancy way of saying that workers can be forced to join unions or have to pay unions dues no matter what. The fact that unions have invaded our public (government) sectors is only making the problem worse. Much worse.

Because of these things Ohio is no longer a state that is friendly to its citizens. I have very high hopes that Gov-elect Kasich and soon to be Speaker Batchelder will turn this around.
