An all new contribution by Daver the Raver
Wow! The Global Exclaimer and Daver. Long time, no rant.

It has been several years since I have taken the time to blow off steam and let loose with some world-class sarcasm and self-amusing wit. During that time, I have observed the Global Exclaimer take on many forms, and have sat by placidly watching while many rant-worthy topics have crossed my psyche. I can be silent no longer.
WTF is going on with our new President? I don’t understand his reasoning behind changing EVERYTHING he can get his liberal, socialist brain latched onto. Perhaps his goal is to throw what can only be described as a crap-load of money into changing EVERYTHING that existed prior to January 20, 2009. Get ready to live in the United States of Oprah!
Travel with me back to the famous “Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country” line issued by John F. Kennedy. What a tremendous impact that statement had on the country, not only in 1960, but for decades. Contrast that line with the general attitude in this country since our Commander-in-Chief raped the American people by signing the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. He might as well have stood at the podium and announced “Ask not what you can do for country, but ask who is going to save your sorry ass from your own bad decisions.”
What did you expect from a man who campaign rally cry was stolen from Bob the Builder? Yes, we can! Yes, we can my ass!
The next wacko I hear ask “Where’s my bailout?” has a high percentage of meeting God. I am sick to death of people wanting freebies! AAAAGGGHHH!!! Here’s an idea – don’t buy what you can’t afford! We have financial rules at the house of Daver; we buy what we need, and some of what we want. We did not buy a big-ass house we couldn’t afford. (Aside: Did anyone seriously think they could afford a house worth 400 large with a job that requires them to ask if the customer wants a “refreshing beverage”?) We have one car payment at a time. We only eat out once a week. We do not run up credit card balances. If we can’t afford it, we DON”T BUY IT!
The net result of these rules? We have all we need and some of what we want. We have money in the bank. If my CFO (Mrs. Daver) or I lose our jobs, we can last for quite a while without going on the government handout program. In my case, I am thankful for this fact. I am surprised every day that my employer is still in business. (Picture the Titanic after hitting the iceberg.) Guess what, it sucks that my employer is on shaky ground. It is not the job of the United States government to find me a better job!
If I were in charge, and I should be, I would not give bailout money to anyone or any company. That is like giving a hungry, screaming baby a pacifier instead of a bottle. It shuts him up for a while not solving the problem and creates more dependence on the provider. Either way, it SUCKS! Take responsibility for your own actions and decisions. Grow a pair!
For all you hard-working readers of the Global Exclaimer – be prepared to lose more of your hard earned money as the Obama machine decides that your income is needed to help others with their head up their own ass.
For those who voted for him – I hope you are happy. You got what you wanted!
Don’t even get me started on that freak Nancy Pelosi…
God help us all.
