I take no credit for this, it’s from today’s edition of Smart Business Hawaii (authored by the lone ranger, Sam Slom, Hawaii’s only Republican State Senator) and it’s great:
“Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing; and, where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.”
Does this sound familiar to you? Sadly, it does to me and here’s a good example.
The Obama administration (job creators that they are) wants to put an end to kids working on family farms -their own family’s farms! You can’t make this stuff up. It’s true (hat-tip, The Daily Caller). Maybe Barry and Michelle aren’t talking because they seem to be at odds here.
She wants kids to get off their butts and be active and he wants to turn them to fat, lazy couch-spuds dependent of government hand-outs, no doubt. Drive what little work ethic there is out of today’s youth. Get ’em busy and engaged in more worthy things like Occupy Wall Street maybe. Who knows?
~REMEMBER THIS: The government has NO resources. They produce NOTHING. They can only take from one group and give to others they feel more worthy of their largess (and votes). Push for tax reform.

Yesterday’s Daily Caller reports:
The Internal Revenue Service says it will need a battalion of 1,054 new auditors and staffers
and new facilities at a cost to taxpayers of more than $359 million in fiscal 2012 just to watch over the initial implementation of President Obama’s healthcare reforms. Among the new corp will be 81 workers assigned to make sure tanning salons pay a new 10 percent excise.
Does this look like a president who now understands what ‘We the People’ want in the way of deficit reduction? If this isn’t a case for a total tax reform I don’t know what is. Do you think the IRS came out with this on their own? I doubt it, they are at the beck and call of the administration which continually talks out of both sides of their mouth.
The President’s budget does not include a single difficult decision, yet he says he is willing to compromise and work with the House Majority. Where’s the leadership here? This makes them the villains when they do come up with the real substantial cuts necessary. It’s the same with the GOP being forced to shut down the government if they push for conditions on raising the debt ceiling.
First of all, everyone needs realize that shutting down the government is not a bad thing. It’s called Time Out!
Mitch Daniels, a likely GOP presidential candidate tells it like it is regarding doing the hard work of deficit reduction,
“When infinite demand meets finite supply, you have a problem.”
But even better, Daniels admits his fellow Republicans need to admit this too and get down to work. Just like senator Rand Paul says, it’s not just Republican vs Democrat, it’s can the country sustain that level of debt? Answer: Not even!
Please urge your Congressmen and women to get serious on the budget (and part of this is tax reform). All entitlement programs need to be cut (medicare, medicaid and social security) and there needs to be means testing to qualify for entitlements. Here’s all you need to do: find your state on this map and away you go!

David Kernell 23, the son of a Democratic Tennessee state legislator and former University of Tennessee student convicted of hacking into Sarah Palin’s e-mail account during her campaign for Vice President, has begun his federal prison term of 1 year and a day in a minimum security facility.
Not all who tweet are fans
Meanwhile dozens tweet for the death of Palin. The YouTube video has already been taken down, but according to the DailyCaller.com, some of the Tweeters wish Palin would die of cancer, while others advocate for her assassination.
“My hatred for Sarah Palin continues to grow. I think this woman should be assassinated,” said one person. “Sarah Palin should be shot for her encouragement of fanaticism against Democrats,” says another.
Now I ask you, where’s the love? These aren’t even close to being rhetorical, they mean it. Talk about hypocrisy, OMG.
