Kill Bill Kill Jobs

There was a movie a while back called "Kill Bill vol I" that I made the mistake of renting from the Library. It was about some woman who I think was trying to quit some sort of assassination group and they didn't want her to. There was a lot of senseless violence with a lot of blood & fighting of one vs. many many ninja types. The movie was a waste of time (my lovely wife was sensible enough to not watch it) and really was completely mindless.

Now we have politicians who do not understand how business works; business hires the people who pay taxes. There is a finite amount of money to buy bonds or invest in businesses. The government (which used have an AAA+ rating on its bonds) is borrowing all the money that could have gone to individuals or businesses that would be used to grow businesses which would lead to more jobs.

The Congress & P.O.'s highest priorities are Cap & Trade and Health Care "Reform." Both of these will Kill Jobs; especially the Cap & Trade Bill which raises taxes on all energy (coal, gas, oil,etc.). More money to government means less money for the small business people to create a products & jobs. HC "Reform" is basically for the first 4-5 years just a tax increase plus more regulation on insurance companies; which (you guessed it) leaves less money for the producers in society. Some actual reforms like containing lawsuit abuse or allowing insurance to sell across state lines (proposed by R) are not in the bill.

Kill Bill was mindless as are our politicians are in Kill Jobs mode.

Arizona faces unique healthcare challenges including uncompensated care for illegal immigrants, and the large number of Native Americans who live in remote and isolated areas of the state. Rick Renzi

Financial literacy is an issue that should command our attention because many Americans are not adequately organizing finances for their education, healthcare and retirement. Ron Lewis

Lawsuit abuse is a major contributor to the increased costs of healthcare, goods and services to consumers. Charles W. Pickering

MIND, n. A mysterious form of matter secreted by the brain. Its chief activity consists in the endeavor to ascertain its own nature, the futility of the attempt being due to the fact that it has nothing but itself to know itself with. From the Latin mens, a fact unknown to that honest shoe-seller, who, observing that his learned competitor over the way had displayed the motto "Mens conscia recti," emblazoned his own front with the words "Men's, women's and children's conscia recti."
