Can we survive?

Budgets (public, government) are shrinking…fast!  And the question on the minds of Virignians…..Can we survive without government services?  The Times-Dispatch has many articles detailing the “downfall of society”:

Officials seek ways to deal with budget shortfall

Virginia tax collections reflect struggling economy

Get ready folks…here it comes!  The biggest whine-fest, horror-story, fear-mongering you have ever heard!  Remember, only you and your family can live with less, never the government!  But, even I, understand these cuts are going to have to be deep! 

Something very good can come of this….peope will begin to learn that life can really go on and life can function without government programs and services!  Yes!  It can!  (or should I say, “Yes, we can!”)  Where services are vital…the private sector can respond…where serives where niceties in good times…they can go away (just like your home when things get tough!)

However, I have already heard rumors (mostly from the education establishment,  not the only time, and not the first time) that some will be asking for a tax increase!  OF COURSE! 

Get ready…fight against any proposal to raise fees and taxes!  As a reminder, the gutless, easy thing to do is run to the taxpayers for help by raising taxes…courage is cutting programs and waste!  Lets watch and see who is Gutless or Courageous!

Because we can survive!

Can’t we?

  1. Scott,
    Why is it that college tuitions go up every year? I heard a repoert on the Rush Limbaugh show that most Ivy League institutions make so much money in interest on their holdings that they could give every incoming freshman a one year free ride and never come close totouching the principle of their investments! So where does all that money go? Maybe to fund the socialist representatives in Washington? Just a suggestion folks, just a suggestion.

  2. I am telling you….it is going to get ugly! There will be a crush of people that think schools and government services should NEVER be cut!

    The Elite (school lobby) will tell you that kids will suffer! And the premise is that it’s governments job to educate your kids and if government doesn’t do it…then your kid will suffer.

    It is time for a “change”, wake up sheeple! It is our(your) job to educate our(your) kids!

    Stop depending on “all things government”!

  3. ROFLMAO!!!!

    Meet the new boss , same as the old boss.

    This is gonna be fun to watch.I guess eventually you will see creating children just to create children and then dumpimg them on society to raise was in fact one of main driving points for abortion to be legalized.

    As you yourself posted Scott “it’s our job to educate our kids”

    Well Scott dont stop at education , perhaps you should in fact alert potential parents exactly how much is costs to raise a child to age 18 as well, cuz it seems to me many current parents havent a clue at ALL.

    Grant

  4. Grant,
    When Scott says “it’s our job to educate our kids” he is not speaking of the collective, but the individual family. This is where you fall off the edge every time. You misinterpret what people say as opposed to taking them at their word.
    About informing potential parents what it costs to raise a child, it is a matter of PERSONAL RESPONCIBILITY, that is lwhat living in a free society is all about. We have the liberty to make our own decisions and our own mistakes, too. I SEE YOU HAVE MADE YOURS
    Beyond that, Grant I truly hope you have a blessed Thanks Giving

  5. UM John ?,

    If Scott wasnt speaking of the collective then he should have said “it’s YOUR job to educate YOUR kids” NOT “It’s OUR job to educater OUR kids”.

    In fact JOHN is is YOU that fell off the edge not realizing that . Cuz Scott’s use of OUR indicated the “collective metality ” you seem to decry.

    PS i had a grand thanksgiving and hope you did to John.

    Grant

  6. Grant,
    Knowing scott as I do, when he speaks of OUR he is talking about his own children and everyone else does likewise. I thinkthe better phrase would have been my own and your own. But definitely not the goverment’s job.

    we’re still partying here at 9:40 PM not just thanking God for his blessings but also remembering those we lost this year, too

  7. Grant,
    Did you read the post? Do you listen to our show? Have you ever read ANY of my posts?

    It is not governments or the collective society job to educate our kids, it MY job to make sure my kids are educated.

    I am amazed it needs clarification!

  8. Scott in fact i listened to your show on friday filling in for doc and was wondering when the so called terrorist that got a fat lip from those 3 SEALS had his conviction proven in a military tribunal .

    And you wonder why very few are rallying behind those 3 SEALS when the answer is you have not yet confirmed the guilt of the person they gave that fat lip too.
    The vast majority of AMERICANS think innocent til proven guilty is a belief this nation was founded on yet you seem to believe only an accusation is needed to prove someone’s guilt in this case.
    SO I WILL ASK NOW WHEN WAS THAT CLAIMED TERRORIST TRIED AND FOUND GUILTY?

    Loooks forward to your response.

    Grant

  9. SCOTT ,

    btw , learn to use the term MY then if you are refering to YOUR children and not the collective OUR.

    GRANT

    • Grant,
      Once again Scott is reffering to all conservative families, and their children, when he uses the term “our”. It should be a given when you already know his point of view and nothing more than a samantic argument from your point that actually holds no water. Because even you know in what context he is speaking. That makes your statement nothing more than dust.

  10. Grant,
    Where are you getting your intel on “very few”are rallying behind these SEALS? I know that you will cringe BUT you need to watch and LISTEN to Fox news. The do have both the largest and MOST DIVERSE audience on TV. They represent the vast majority of this country. At last check over 40% of Americans describe themselves as CONSERVATIVES as opposed to 20% who call themselves as LIBERALS.

    By the way how did you like those two callers, on Doc’s show last night, that tore any liberal view to pieces with their knowledge of both history and recent experience IN THE FIELD OF BATTLE?

  11. LOL ,

    ONCE MORE I WILL ASK ,

    WHEN WAS THAT CLAIMED TERRORIST (THAT GOT THE FAT LIP FROM THOSE 3 SEALS ) TRIED AND FOUND GUILTY?

    I still are looking forward to your response that answers that question.

    Grant 🙂

  12. Grant,
    The ONLY rule of law on a battle field is; if you have the right guy, you kill him! This is not a question of U.S. Constitutional law or the U.S. Bill of Rights! Those are reserved for CITIZENS of the United States of America When are you going to learn this? This man ws taken on the BATTLEFIELD not in the streets of anytown, USA. Get over it! And that, my friend, is the right answer to your question. Whether you like it or not. As we say in NYC,dems da rules, if you don’t like ’em go somewhere else.

  13. LOL JOHN ,

    It’s apparent YOU can ask the question i posed to Scott either.

    Figures .

    If you were accused of something i’m pretty sure you’d be the 1st to run for a lawyer to prove your innocence. Then again with tort reform that may not be possible much longer either.

    GRANT 🙂

    • Grant
      1) As far as I have read, tort reform deals with medical malpractice, not with criminal law.
      2) The SEAL team was taking him into custody. If he resists, he gets banged up. SO WHAT

  14. Grant,

    This is exactly why people like you should never be in charge of our country during a time of war!

    Do you really think our enemies, that we catch on the battle field, are the same as American Citizens and should be read their rights? Your type is exactly like Bill Clinton…when Sudan called and said we have Osama Bin Laden do you want him! Rememer Clinton’s answer, “We have no grounds to take him!” Holy Crap! Clinton could have stop 9-11!

    But you….you are too weak, at least your comments show that to be the case, to understand how to fight this war on terror! It is not a civil case…it is WAR!

    Sorry you don’t like it, but this terrorist is guilty because he is the enemy and tried to kill us first!

    I support the the US NAVY SEALS over any terrorists!

    Liberals are frightening!

  15. LOL,

    And yet i notice here you and your ilk are in Virginia and not over in Iraq or Afghanistan .
    Perhaps things would go far better if you were over there shooting bullets as fast as you shoot syllables from your mouth on the radio.;-)

    ROFLMAO AT THE CLINTON COMMENT … WHAT CRIME was BIN LADEN GUILTY of on JAN 20th 2001 ? Which was the DAY CLINTON LEFT OFFICE.

    Research this link —-v
    http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/11/17/army.tapes.canal.killings/

    GRANT 🙂

  16. Grant,
    Your “grasp” of law, history and facts is pitiful at best. I am guessing that Nathan Hale was read his rights, too?

  17. LOL,

    Guess this shows why blogs are better forums than talk shows now.
    I hope the readers of these blog are enjoying the opinions posted here and they help them decide where they finally decide to stand on issues.

    Grant 🙂 🙂

  18. Grant,

    Okay, since I havent served in the military I cant comment on how to fight a war?

    Always the liberals reaction to scream that the one they are arguing with never served! The point remains….you want to read the terrorists we catch in this war their “rights”. And that is still scary!

    • Scott,
      My two eldest sons have served in this war. If I may respond with the insight of their experience. This is a war what they do is not pretty. It is kill or be killed. When you capture some one on the battlefield there are no Miranda rights. why? Because they are not Americans I know My eldest has said of those that would give these TERRORISTS Constitutional rights, HEY A$^H*&#, RANGER UP AND WALK A MILE IN MY BOOTS, IF YOU HAVE THE NERVE. THEN AND ONLY THEN CAN YOU PASS ANY JUDGEMENT ON ME!
      Personally I believe that opinions without facts to support it are useless. You know, like liberal beliefs. they are full of what ifs but short on real life experience.

  19. ROFLMAO

    the 2 question remain UNANSWERED for all readers of this blog to see

    1 WHAT CRIME WAS OSAMA GUILTY OF ON JAN 20TH 2001 ?

    2. WHEN WAS THAT CLAIMED TERRORIST THAT GOT THE FAT LIP FROM THOSE 3 SEALS FOUND GUILTY IN A MILITARY TRIBUNAL?

    IF YOU CANT GIVE COMPLETE ANSWERS TO THOSE 2 QUESTIONS FOLKS MAY START TO WONDER WHY.

    GRANT 🙂 🙂

  20. Grant
    Just try and resist arrest, here in America, and see what happens to you. You’ll get tuned up worse than that terrorist. When you are being taken into custody and resist, all bets are off on your physical appearance for your mug shot! AND THAT IS THE RIGHT ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION. You just don’t like the answer.
    Lets face it, I said it best on the show, last week;
    Watch any episode of COPS. American perps get faceplanted all the time and there are no charges brought against the police officers! So what makes this any different?
    GRANT try making observations and use some common sense. This is too easy.

  21. LOL JOHN ,

    I KNOW NOT RESIST ARREST

    HOWEVER I ALSO HOW NOT TO LET MYSELF BE PUT IN A SITUATION WHERE I WOULD EVER BE ARRESTED.

    AHHH COPS YEP THAT IS A GREAT SHOW , I OFTEN WONDER HOW MANY OF THE CLAIMED PERPS ON THAT SHOW ACTUALLY END UP CONVICTED. MUST NOT BE ALL OF THEM SINCE THEY DO HAVE THAT DISCLAIMER AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SHOW COMMENTING ABOUT TRIALS.
    EVER BEEN –> OBSERVANT <— ENOUGH JOHN TO NOTICE THAT DISCLAIMER???

    MAN THIS WAS EVEN EASIER

    GRANT 🙂 🙂 :-p

    • Yup I noticed the ALL INDIVIDUALS ARE INOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY IN A COUT OF LAW.. That being said……….

  22. That being said……………the perps still get face planted. that was easier still

  23. […] and gutless to run to the taxpayer, his employer, and demand more money…because he can!  I told you this was going to happen, government can’t live with less, never!  But you […]

  24. […] scare tactics start I mentioned this before (Can we survive?),  but it is getting […]

  25. LOL HEY SCARE,

    How do you plan to address the tax isuue when it’s bumped down to the local counties and cities where the blame for tax increases cant beblamed on the president , governor or the general assambly?

    Do you pan to actually go before your neighbors and actually claim they are using “scare tactics” to help educate their children?.
    Somehow i dont think anyone using that tactic will be welcome in the community very much longer .
    Then again the basis of our govt foundation is at the local level so we shall see how successful you are at keeping your local taxes at the levels they are now.
    WOULD IT NOT BE SOOOOOO IRONIC THAT MANY FOLKS HAVE BEEN GETTING LOCAL TAX BREAKS DUE TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY’S ACTIONS END UP LOSING THOSE PERKS NOW.

    What will you do then , spin it so you blame obama cuz your local board of supervisors raised some of your taxes? HA HA HA

    Talk about something fun to observe .

    GRANT 🙂 🙂 🙂

    BTW whatever did happen to those 3 SEALS mentioned earlier in this thread ?Never did see an answer posted.
