Indiana is full of Big Government Republicans

Republicans do not stand for smaller government.

This session a bill (SB 0490) was passed that would make it much harder for "Interior Designers" to work in the state of Indiana.

This stupid piece of legislation is an example of how both Democrats and Republicans in Indiana constantly expand government and intrude into our daily lives...

Please check this out:

(History of SB 0490 including the votes)

And then check out:

(Relevant section of Indiana Code)
<http://www.in.gov/legislative/bills/2007/ES/ES0490.1.html>

Please realize the the Indiana Senate is heavily Republican and passeds this bill by a massive majority.

Believe it or not, Mitch Daniels just vetoed this bill...

Mitch Daniels should have vetoed this bill.

No self respecting Republican or Democrat should have voted for this bill.

Is there even one person reading this blog that thinks SB 0490 was a good bill?

If you do please let me know...

Also I hope all of you Republcians chime in and tell me what you think about the huge number of Indiana Republicans who voted in favor of this bill...

Good grief...

Just another stoopid piece of s&$t legislation by our resident north east Indiana nutjob.

I was thrilled to see the Gov veto it.

I was critically injured by drapes that didn't match the carpet.

I think the entire country, for the most part is full of big government Republicans. Did you watch the debate on Thursday?

Tim Zank said...

Robert, that's hilarious!

Kody, you may be right, maybe it's time for FRED!

Robert Enders said...

I think its time for Ron Paul. If he wins the nomination, I'll vote for him.

Say Yes to Dr. No!

Kody Tinnel said...

I'll second that Robert.

I have been researching Ron Paul a lot lately. I like what I see.

LP Mike Sylvester said...

I would certainly vote for Ron Paul as well...

To All,

I am reasonably happy w/ my 2002 Ford Focus. I spend about $30 every two (2) weeks to fill up. I get good fuel efficiency (but not great).

Here is what is going to really piss me off (prediction #1).

All of us out here in the real world have seen gas prices rising (some might go so far as to say skyrocketing) over the last couple of years.

So what have American car companies done in preparation of higher gas prices... Dumbasses keep building big trucks and SUV's like nothing is happening. They do this because they are short sighted idiots and because the big vehicles (which they HEAVILY PUSH with marketing) are selling now.

As we all can predict gas prices are going to have a negative impact on the sales of vehicles that are fuel inefficient (big trucks and SUV's). But our stupid, inbred, narrowminded, short sighted auto industry keeps tooling along like it's 1969.

In a few years they are going to be in SEVERE financial trouble. They won't have time to retool their factories. Thus their losses WILL BE STAGGERING! Then they are going to whine and beg the US Government to bail them out and save them from going out of business due to their own incompetent stupidity.

What I am really going to get pissed off at is that you know our government will be DUMB ENOUGH to do this.

Forget the free market! Forget letting the strong survive! Forget Darwinism! Forget Capitalism! Let's bail out the big, dumb, stupid American auto industry.

Again...

OK, Rant over.

Respectfully,

Doug Horner

"In a few years they are going to be in SEVERE financial trouble."

You mean like the recently released Q1 earnings reports that showed Ford only losing $282 Million? How about Chevy's recent turd dumpling of a quarter that showed profits down by 90%?

Doug...what you're talking about is at hand already. No matter how you define "SEVERE financial trouble," American automakers are already knee deep in it.

Jodi - Thanks for calling this out - This is what some of us have been trying to point out over the last 3 months. Did you note that the article listed Indianapolis as having the closest approach to this type of facility? The only problem ,now, is that the Harrison Square stadium will be eating up all of our TIF, CEDIT and CREeD tax revenues with the sure-to-occur "cost overruns" and all this income will not be available to use for something like this - all will be going to Atlanta, Georgia. Maybe we do have an "inbred stupidity" in our town. John B. Kalb

Agree Mike. Saw a gaggle of them at the bottom of page 10A of Sunday's paper today.

Good grief indeed!
