Citizen Kaine’s Parting Gift to VA

“Virginia Leading the Way”

That is Governor Kaine’s motto but leading Virginians where? Instead of preparing to move on with his life and after having inflicted enough damage to the Commonwealth’s economy he is eager to announce the nature of his parting gift; ‘People are going to see an awful lot in this budget they don’t like.” 

Like all Demicrats, Kaine, throws the proverbial hand grenade into the hole and runs away, perhaps glancing over his shoulder to see everything go up in smoke. Well, instead of acting like a gentleman working for Virginia’s future he leads the way into higher taxation and job cuts, a nice parting gift for the holidays. He’s like the bad boyfriend who gets dumped at Starbucks over some drink I can’t spell out; if he can’t have VA then no one else can have it. A tax hike will certainly force the Republican/Conservative side of the house to deal with this atrocity long after he’s left office. This is clearly designed to set up Governor-elect McDonnell for failure but we must all be astute and pay attention. This is precisely why we’ve voted Dems out and more will be ejected from VA in coming elections. To fight it is the right thing but just the same Kaine is determined not to balance our budget responsibly (say, stop spending) and I’ve been waiting for that car tax to go away as promised but nothing. Kaine is convinced that he can balance a budget at this point in time it doesn’t make sense. Here’s a clue: stop spending on social programs. This is not news. Get rid of social programs catering to the environmentalist movement; that should save you a lot of money.  

Another thing that bothers me is a study being conducted to determine why there are less minority students enrolled in gifted studies programs in comparison to their white peers. After I found it I started looking for the cost of the study but naturally, it’s not mentioned. Now I can’t find the original story on his site but that’s okay. I’d like to volunteer to conduct the study, and I will only charge $1 for my trouble.

Minority kids have access to gifted study programs. Why they are not represented in greater numbers may be due to a poor study and family support system. Why? Because it’s the Dems’ doctrine to convince minorities that they are too dumb to do anything on their own, and this is done from cradle to grave. Their academic ethic may be strong but if not properly supported parents will not make them do the work to get them to that level. It’s a working theory but after discussing this issue with some friends of mine who used to be teachers the lack of parental support at home is a huge factor in lower performance scores.

But then libs like to think that after-school programs are better than to let kids run home and do their homework, right? We have smart kids with great potential in VA. Let them choose their courses. That’s about as much freedom as we have today…before electives go away for good.

So now, after all this spending and receiving federal handouts to fund pet projects we can expect Virginia’s high schoolers to be forced to take a financial literacy class. Now think about that; Demicrats spend out of control, we’re on the verge of national bankruptcy and economic collapse and this is the time to introduce the elements of capitalism in schools. Fantastic. With the terrible example of fiscal mismanagement I’d say the course would be a waste of time and effort. All these kids have to do is watch the news and see how not to handle their finances. How are we going to pay for the books?

How about we have ACORN – which is still getting federal funds – to buy the books and run the courses? After all, with a president who values a good self-grading moment like it’s nobody’s business, he’d be proud to see that the training of future illegal accountants is well-funded. Here is genius testimony to this legislation, just make sure no one thinks I’ve made it up. And I quote:

Del. Lionell Spruill Sr., D-Chesapeake, who sponsored the legislation for the course, said he believed a financial literacy class was necessary because he met many students who had no clue about managing money.

“They didn’t know how to keep a record or balance a checkbook,” he said. “They were spending money on credit cards that they don’t know they have to pay back.”

You know this is just too outrageously funny and sad at the same time. This is not the time to make major changes to anything. Just leave things alone. I thought that discussing Kaine would be boring but you know what? Maybe I’ll find enough stupid crap and add to this post, just to prove how destructive he and the Dems in Virginia are.

Update:

So did anyone ask Timmy why Virginians coughed up around half a million dollars to fund security and transportation costs for the Obama coronation? The feds have reinbursed the Commonwealth part of that money but there’s more. That should be only part of the $5.7 million spent by Virginia transportation agencies – why is a local government helping the feds with security costs? – reinbursing us $2.8 million. Where’s the rest of the money? With stimulus money gone to ghost zip codes and other money that is not accounted for I have to ask, when are we going to start prosecuting these corrupt politicians for their negligence and crimes and fiscal fraud? Timmy is out of office. There has to be a way of bringing charges to these people so that justice can be served.

If I wanted to go see Obama’s coronation I would have driven or taken a bus or metro. Why stage the dem’s wagons in Virginia is outrageous. But that’s okay. Accountabiliy will once again come to light. Bob McDonnell has a lot of work ahead of him.

Republicans, you’re not off the hook. In the senate action must be swift to stop this tax increase to go through and stop these special projects from being funded. Your political future depends on that. You know what? You should have been history too. Go away quietly. We can elect new people.
