Image Well it looks like its OK for Obama to fire the head of General Motors; however, Bush can't even fire his own U.S. attorneys. Obama administrations demanded that Rick Wagoner resign as chairman of General Motors, basically he was fired as the price of GM's accepting government money. Obama says the government will stand by your GM car warranty to promote sales of GM vehicles. And all the taxpayers will get to foot the bill. The new GM owner's manual will come with a disclaimer: "Government Control, closer than it appears”. Now that we’ve all agreed that the government can make hiring and firing decisions based on the acceptance of taxpayer money, I can think of a few specific government funded entities whose employee’s are badly in need of firing. Right off the bat I think of Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and everybody at the Department of Education? Also, how about firing all the former Weathermen, like Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn and Mark Rudd, whose university salaries are subsidized by the taxpayer? Doesn’t that seem fair? I am sure if their achievements were racked up alongside Rick Wagoner we would have no choice but to fire them. Almost every, if not all, universities in the country accepts government money. Is there any industry in America more in need of some restructuring than academia? What's Berkeley's business plan, stop turning out anti-capitalist graduates who hate America? And what is Obama's reason for keeping Shirley M. Tilghman as president of Princeton University as long as Princeton employs the well known wackjob Peter Singer? Singer, the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton's Center for Human Values, believes parents should have the right to kill newborn babies with birth defects, such as Down syndrome and hemophilia, and says there is nothing morally wrong with parents having children in order to harvest them for spare organs for an older child, or even for society to breed children on a massive scale for spare parts. Someone REALY like the matrix first time they saw it. I mean, his views on these issues are so extreme I am surprised Singer hasn't been offered a position somewhere in Obama’s cabinet yet. Perhaps he paid his taxes, and only hired legal documented workers and therefore was disqualified. Singer compares the black liberation movement to the liberation of apes, saying we must "extend to other species the basic principle of equality that most of us recognize should be extended to all members of our own species." Now please indulge me, my Chey flag waving, Fidel Castro praising liberal buddies, Imagine, just for one moment, if Rush Limbaugh had said that. I cannot even begin to tell you of the outrage in the liberal media. Keith Oberman and Chris Matthews would be organizing a Frankenstein mob, with torches and pitchforks calling for his head. The esteemed professor Singer also believes sex with animals is acceptable and has no objections to necrophilia, only if of course the deceased gave consent when still alive. We're still waiting to hear his views on sex with dead animals. Especially me, because I have absolutely nothing to do this Easter. Doesn't a new vision for Princeton, which profits from massive, and I mean massive taxpayer subsidies in the form of student loans and government grants , require firing the president of Princeton? That university is clearly teetering on the brink of moral bankruptcy. Would you keep paying your child’s tuition if this black hearted sicko was teaching your child? Totally honesty is required beyond this point.. So..when is the government going to get around to firing 99 percent of public school superintendents? They're clearly turning out an inferior product, like America's public school graduates, more than half of which can’t even read for christsakes. In New York City, spending on public schools increased by more than 300 percent between 1982 and 2001, coming in at $11,474 per pupil annually , compared to about $5,000 for private schools. If Obama can tell GM and Chrysler that their promotional activities in NASCAR is an "unnecessary expenditure," isn't having public schools force students to follow Muslim rituals, recite Islamic prayers and plan "jihads" also an "unnecessary expenditure"? Are all those school condom purchases considered "necessary expenditures"? Illegal aliens cost the American taxpayer more than $10 billion a year in Medicaid, Medicare, food stamps, free school lunches, prison, school and court costs. You want some stimulus, close emergency rooms to illegals. And yet cities, counties and states across the nation are openly refusing to enforce federal immigration law against illegal aliens, while accepting billions of dollars of stimulus money on top of numerous, and I mean numerous other federal payouts. Shouldn't somebody be fired over this? How about hauling San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom before a congressional committee and firing him? San Francisco is getting $18 million of stimulus money . It’s no surprise to me that the majority of its residents will receive this money in the form of Social Security payments, government grants, welfare payments, federal highway funds, not to mention the numerous other government handouts they have over there. Doesn't PBS take federal funds? Obama should really ask Elmo to step down and fund the research to discover actually how to get to Sesame Street. While we're at it, shouldn't Tim Geithner be fired? Now that the government owns everything, there's no end to the dead weight that we can be rid of. What about Schumer, Harry Ried, Franklin Rhaines, I mean there’s so many. But the problem is, as this very incomplete list shows, most of the dead weight exists only because of government in the first place! Capitalism has its own methods of clearing out dead weight, which the government keeps preventing by forcing the taxpayer to bail out capitalism's losers. Let the market fail, let it reset and those who lose will rebuild like always and those who deserved to fail will. Life is not fair, not everything is free, and bad things happen to good people and that my friends is what builds character and winners in America, not whining, sniveling future Marxists with their dirty little paws extended outward begging, please sir may I have some more?
