"John McClane: You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
Matt Farrell: Then why you doing this?
John McClane: Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
Matt Farrell: Ah. That's what makes you that guy. "

Words To Live By
"The era of small government is over ... government has to be more proactive, more aggressive." ( Tim Pawlenty 2006)

"You're just petty politicians, who'd sooner sign onto the wisdom of a tyrant in another country, than the demands of ticked off voters in your own." (Neil Cavuto June 2008)

“I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment.” Mr. Cheney went on: “The point I made and I’ll make it again is that Al Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of Al Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it.” (Vice President Cheney NYT Feb. 2007)

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. (Ronald Reagan March 1, 1975)

"Oh, no! First of all, if I took one vote away from a serious candidate, it would be a sin." (Al Franken Time Magazine, 9/1/03)

The Great Thriftmas Miracle

We all have been feeling it. Something wasn’t right. They kept saying in the news that the economy was back, that shoppers were out in force, that everything was ok and people were thrilled Obama was reelected.

But people aren’t out there shopping, they are looking for something for nothing. Seeking out huge deals and only showing up for the loss leaders, not big ticket items at full retail. We’re the discount bin nation now. We have learned patience. Why buy something at full price that will be obsolete today when you can get it next week at 40%?

Add to that the awakening on how bad the fiscal mess in Washington is, Americans are finally realizing that the chickens of the great society are finally coming home to roost. The average Joe’s out there on the street are starting to dig down to see the truth, not the spoon fed lies of the media, to see that the next few years are going to be very VERY bad for America.

Obamacare is coming to tax us to “health”. Obama’s scam payroll tax credit is ending, and rightly so as that was money not going to the Social Security Fund. Income taxes are going to go up. Businesses will not be looking at wage or benefit increases with all the red tape and added costs thanks to Obama.

Let’s also not overlook that not all electoral capitulation was done in Washington, in Minnesota Democrats rode the socialist GOTV wave to winning single party rule of all levels of Government. uHaul is now the busiest business in Minnesota as the question is not if taxes will be raised, but how how. Not if money will be wasted by the social engineers on trains and other useless stuff, but how many more billion dollar boondoggles that make traffic worse are going to be added..

Americans are finally looking in the mirror and realizing that the party is over, that the bills are going to come due. That this Christmas was not going to be on someone else’s credit card.

The stark reality Americans are facing is that the fiscal cliff is not located in Washington, and that the only way out of the mess created by promises made for votes cast is that literally everyone has to pay their fair share.

As I have pointed out, even if you took every penny away from the rich, you would only balance the budget for one year.

Merry Thriftmas America. Its a miracle. You woke up and you finally realized things aren’t all rosy, but it may be too late.
