Some Monday random thoughts 

By Neal Boortz

  • Basic truth:  People who just want a check vote Democrat.  People who want a PAYCHECK vote Republican.

  • So now Obama says he wants to extend the Bush Tax Cuts for one more year.  But only for those who make $250,000 or less, and only for one year.  Great!  It’s the people making less than $250K a year who are creating all the jobs, right? 

  • New phrase for Democrats to use in their class war:  “Wealthiest, most fortunate Americans.”  Yeah … these people are wealthy because they’re lucky.  Had nothing to do with hard work and good decision making.
  • Did the HMWIC of the NAACP in DeKalb County, Ga. really call the upcoming vote on for a sales tax on a transportation initiative raaaaaaaacist because the plans didn’t include a rail line to a shopping mall favored by blacks? 
  • Atheists sue over symbols of Christianity in public places because they’re largely liberals and they think Christians are largely conservative.  They’re attacking conservatism, not Christianity. 
  • Every once in a while someone pops up on Twitter or in an email to say that they’ve been away for a while, and wondering where Royal is.  Often I just don’t have the heart to tell them. 
  • Speaking of Twitter … I’m creeping up on 100,000 followers.  You can find me at @Talkmaster.  Don’t look for a blue check mark.  For some reason known but to the Twitter Chief, they won’t give me one. 
  • So many people identify “Boo Got Shot” with my show .. .but it had nothing to do with my show!  Our intrepid news ferret Richard “Spanky” Sangster recorded Peaches at a crime scene and we merely lifted it from a newscast.  Hear it today on the show.
  • If Obama were to sell the GM stock the federal government is still holding after the United Auto Workers bailout, the taxpayers would take an additional $35 billion hit.
  • I wonder if all of those people who worked in the GM dealerships that Obama commanded to be closed have managed to find new jobs yet?
  • The number of Americans now receiving Social Security disability payments exceeds the number of people who live in New York City.  Since Obama became president the people on disability have increased by a factor of 15%, while people with jobs have increased by 2%.  Now Democrats can tell these people “If you vote for the Republicans they’re going to take away your disability.” 
  • Right now the maximum federal tax on dividends is 15%.  But … we elected Obama.  So next year the maximum federal tax rate on dividends will be 43.4%.  What do you think this does to folks who invest in stocks that pay annual dividends?  Oh yeah!  Let’s reelect this guy!
  • Florida Senator Marco Rubio introduced a bill in the Senate that would have allowed employers to give a raise to a union employee who did especially good work.  The purple-shirted goons of the Service Employees International Union fought it, and the Senate defeated the bill 54-45.  Don’t you just loooooove unions? 
  • The unemployment rate has dropped in every single state that elected a Republican governor in 2010.  Not so for all states that elected a Democrat governor.
  • Almost every month since November of 2009 – on 30 separate occasions – the Obama junta has greeted dismal employment numbers by telling the people that they “should not read too much into” the new “unexpectedly” dismal numbers.   In March, April, May and June of this year the White House used EXACTLY the same line:  “Therefore, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report and it is informative to consider each report in the context of other data that are becoming available.” 
  • It’s time the United States abandon the United Nations.  It is, as someone I can remember described, a “playground for dictators.”  Get out and start another international body with membership limited to countries with elected leaders, a constitution protecting basic rights, and the protection of the rule of law. 
  • If you use an iPhone 4 or a smart phone with dictation capabilities, and you dictate a text message while driving, are you texting while driving? 
  • You wouldn’t believe the amount of data I’ve been collecting for the past four years to prove EXACTLY where I am every single day of the year.  Credit and debit card receipts.  Entrance gate records.  Elevator records (seriously!).  Flight records. All to be ready should anyone try to collect taxes from me that I do not owe. 
  • The most prescribed medications in the world?  Statins.  And there is NO PROOF that statins have ever prevented a cardiac episode. 
  • David Axelrod is Obama’s chief advisor and dog-washer.  You would be surprised to see the extent of the connections between Axelrod and the Communist Party of the United States of America.  YOU would be surprised.  I wasn’t. 
  • Do you enjoy watching or posting videos to YouTube?  We now have a ruling in a federal case, National Association for the Deaf v. Netflix, that could lead to a requirement for closed-captioning for ever video posted to YouTube? 

Had enough?  Well then, we’ll move on to other matters:
