What Time is it Folks

Did you catch the Carnival Thursday? Representative Nugent rolled into town with his Republican script
tailored for his Tea Party followers and any non Tea party constituents. What’s new is that on the day that he delivered his parties scripted opinion the Dow Jones Index dropped $512.00.

His response to many questions in general was we did the best we could under the circumstances, including the
Debt Ceiling bill S365. What he hasn’t answered is why 12.9 percent are still unemployed in Hernando  County and why his party has not sponsored one jobs bill since he has been elected on a platform to create jobs.

When asked why he signed Grover Norquist’s pledge not to raise taxes he said he didn’t sign it for Norquist, he signed it for the gentlemen sitting in the audience. Sure he did? A retired school teacher tried to express her fears about the budget cuts that would affect her, Nugent’s response was that each of us has to choose how much we will be willing to give up. My question is why he is willing to ask us to sacrifice and not the wealthy he is trying to protect who earn taxable income over $250,000 a year. (The Norquist signing.)

Since the election of Barack Obama in 2008 the Republican agenda has been to discredit and inflict much pain on the people of the United Sates. They blame President Obama and the common man for the Great Recession not the Bankers on Wall Street. They blame President Obama and the common man for Governments spending not themselves and the previous Bush administration tax cuts for the rich, two wars, and an unpaid for drug program.

I know I’ve seen and heard this before so I traveled back in time to my child hood and realized I was watching the Howdy Doody show all over again. A wooden puppet controlled by his master.
