Lessons from Meatloaf (Like a Bat outta Hell)

Lessons for Liberals: "There ain't no Coupe DeVille hidin' at the bottom of the CrackerJack box"
Every action made right now that buries small business in the papertrail is inching some towards closing the doors and just letting more people go from their payrolls.
Every new law that targets the small businesses across America is closing down the largest collective source of the new jobs that we need so desperately.

This appears to be foisted upon us by a group who has never owned anything, and never had to manage any aspect of the business world. This is why it is so dangerous to have them implementing the policies that manage the actions of small business.

On top of all that, they are spending three times the money spent by Bush, all the while laying blame back on Bush for the past 18 months of chaos. Look dems.....grow a set and stop whining. If you had a friggin' clue about where jobs come from, you'd get off of small business' back and work harder for them.

I have to search for it, but I saw a brilliant layout of Reagan vs. Obama job creation...month for month. As much as this administration likes to crow about their job growth, they suck. They wouldn't even give Carter a run for his money, much less Reagan.

Bringing this to a head, I recently reviewed Wolf's competition's website (no, you will not get a link here)...because he's engaged a reply button to his posting apparatus.And I foolishly thought he'd allow the posting of arguments based in fact and devoid of cussing and such language. I was incorrect.
My post was kicked out as "spam". Guess I'd like a look at exactly what his "filter" is spitting out. Bet all of the filter words are ones contained in the following:

Two rules in politics. Never ask a question you do not know the answer to...Never acknowledge your opponent if he's not gaining any traction. Oh yeah...third rule - never NAME your opponent when all that does is add name recognition.
With regard to Jeff's outlined tasks...
"I am running for Congress because our district needs someone who believes in stepping up to our problems, not passing the buck to the next generation of Virginia." Jeff, you've got a lot of nerve even saying that and running as a democrat.
Under this administration, those who could choose to purchase health insurance at their leisure before this congress engaged in it's terminal run, are now forced to buy it or pay a huge fine. Nice going. Now they'll have to decide between food or insurance.
And with the way dems are spending money (we're awfully close to a 100% of GDP....that's never been done or anything close to it to this date) -- I'm personally glad Frank Wolf has been there to say "enough".

"We need to focus on producing economic growth while helping families keep their homes, sparking the next generation of job growth, creating the next generation of transportation, and achieving national security."

You're damned right we do. So stop Cap and Trade job killing legislation, rescend the Healthscare fiasco that has so many boots on the throats of your main employment engine (the small businesses across Virginia) - start enforcing the rule of law on immigration and stop passing the buck to that next generation that you don't want to saddle. If you really want to help, get off the taxpayer's back....don't put your boot on his neck.

Cap and Trade looms.

In an earlier posting I pointed out that the next generations will inevitably get left holding the Obama joke bag.... But wait, there's more.

In the newest Cap and Trade legislation - they propose to opt for a licensing for your home....the building. You'll need to get federal approval before you sell.
In order to get that approval, you need to have your residence evaluated to a standard that they will determine. If you don't pass - you need to invest in the repairs and services to get it up to their standard in order for them to allow you to sell it.

Sounds pretty bad so far, huh? It gets worse.

The opening standard was pretty lax, but each year , they'll enable themselves to raise that standard....until an overhaul is pretty darned expensive.

This travesty has passed the House...and it's headed for the Senate.

You youngin's wanted change? Now change involves an efficiency apartment for life, if this passes.

Catching up on my life....

Aside from the recent ramblings from some who continue to fill my e-mail box with garbage for races as far away as South Carolina -- and then bitch when I tell them to delete my address from their list --- life is going swimmingly. Of course I'm prepared for November. I plan a huge undertaking to increase Frank Wolf's percentage over Barnett by unbelievable numbers in a solid trounce.

But right now, I'm in the stride of summer. I'm working quite a bit this year with an uncommon amount of jobs....all of them occurring concurrently, too. It is basically a great time to throw some money back for the famine just around the corner. When those Bush Tax Cuts end, you'll see what I mean. This is the last chance to employ those cuts and their benefits. Next year, the smart money is going to clamp down -- and find a floorboard somewhere.

Along with that, there's long days and sunset that doesn't come until 8:00 or 9:00....and me slaving over my latest project in the shop.


I stripped another truck to the frame and cut all of the floorboards and cab completely off, leaving only the engine, transmission and the footwells.
Then I drew up the skeleton of this monster and began to attach it and square it.


After the basic skeleton was complete, I attached it to the donor and began making the interior sheetmetal, as well as reforming the firewall. I set out to mock the original 6061 aluminum stamped pieces of the real thing, so that once it's all covered in Linex, only the true expert can see that it's not original.


Yesterday, I hinged the hood and completed the new supports that will permanently join the new body to it's older frame. Today, after I finished my work for the day, I went back down and cut more steel for the fab of the floorboards and door hinges.
I recently aquired a full Kevlar top for this thing, and the gentleman also provided those four slick Kevlar doors from a military unit.(Thanks so much, CW)


If I actually finish the body by September, I should be well into relocating the brake, the steering wheel and box, the accelerator and the center tunnel dress up and complete all the wiring by next time to go topless!

$220 MIL back on reserve!!

Congressman Eric Cantor (VA-07) today made the following statement after Virginia announced a $220 million state budget surplus:

"During these challenging economic times, Virginia balanced its budget and created a revenue surplus of over $200 million in FY 2010. This is a result of the steady leadership of Governor Bob McDonnell. Due to its fiscal prudence, Virginia was also able to close a $4.2 billion budget shortfall in the FY 2011/2012 by significantly cutting spending and without raising taxes. If America is to get its fiscal house in order, Washington needs to learn from the bold actions taken in Virginia by Governor McDonnell.

"Unfortunately, over the last eighteen months, Washington has gone on a spending spree to the tune of nearly $8,000 per person - an increase of $4.9 billion per day - the highest rate of growth in our history. We must start cutting spending, and we must start now, which is why over the past month, Republicans have forced the House of Representatives to vote on more than $100 billion in spending cuts. Unfortunately only a handful of Democrats supported our efforts. Instead of working together to cut spending immediately, President Obama and Speaker Pelosi want to keep kicking the can down the road, but there's no more road left. We can't keep waiting until the proverbial ‘next year,' we need to get our fiscal house in order now so that tomorrow our children and grandchildren can enjoy the same freedoms and opportunity that were provided to us.

"Mr. President, take a look at the example set by Virginia, and let's start making the tough decisions today."

See....All 'ol Timmy had to do was make the tough choices that everyday families have to. Kinda like splurge on instant gratification --- or plan for the long haul.
McDonnell was on Fox news telling the rest of the Nation. It is possible - you just have to make decisions with limited money and stop acting like there's always more in the spigot. The well is dry, Obama....the road ends ahead, so stop kicking the can, man.
