Just Do It!

Hydrofracking and casino gambling are not bogeymen. They are desperately needed revenue streams and job creators. Follow the leader: Gov. Cuomo.

Welcome to 2012.  It may be a new year with new resolutions for us all, but inevitably many things are still un-resolved.  As usual we’ve been inundated the past few weeks with Top 10 lists. The one that intrigued me most was Top 10 News Stories of 2011.  Not No. 1 on any list was the economy.  In fact I did not read one list where the economy was in the Top 5.  If you believe our elected officials are out of touch with the electorate, maybe it’s because the media they read and feed is out of touch with the electorate.

Maybe they, the press, are just surrogates of the Democrat party. I do know that MSNBC is.

You know why the economy wasn't listed as in the top? Because the press is in the pocket of the administration. They don't want people to know how really dad the economy is. Whats more they don't want to let the people know that if this president is re-elected it won't get much better. He is now asking to raise the debt limit 1.2 Trillion dollars more and the dopes in congress will probably let it happen. How can anyone look their children and grand children in the face and tell them that things will be better for them? Shame on these tax and spend liberals and shame on the people that voted them in.

It is very simple and you are right, we as a country need to get back to basics. We need to commercialize the vast natural resources we have; coal (250 year supply and the highest quality in the world), trillions of cubic feet of gas being discovered across the country, billions of gallons of oil (onshore and offshore). Our tax code needs to be refined and lowered and we have to encourage foreign companies and countries to trade with us and be on our side. The US economy dwarfs the rest of the world (with the exception of China) so we have to start flexing muscles.
