We love a good story of the insiders that just do not get it. The Prince George’s County Council is spending $10,000 to $15,000 for a two-night retreat on the Eastern Shore this week. This would not be a big deal except for the fact the chairwoman of the County Council has no idea about spending tax payer money. The Prince George’s County Council decided to spend this money on this year’s retreat, even as the county faces a $77 million shortfall next fiscal year. If that was not enough they have a reason of course if it made these pages it is off the wall. They need to spend this amount of money to be able to focus and help council members avoid distractions. The diggs are top notch as council’s two-night retreat in Upper Marlboro offices at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa & Marina in Cambridge. They are claiming that it is also needed because they have five new council members that are starting the beginning of a four-year term. If you need a cherry on top asked if the members would pay their own way the chairwomen thought few members would still want to stay at the resort in that case. Is it not funny how when it is on their own dime it is not so attractive.

The biggest treat for most in attendance was the sail through the Cold War on USS Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. We also learned the ship had an unmanned helicopter that hunted Soviet submarines. It was amazing to think we had predator technology back in 1960. They also have a high-speed missile corvette that the Soviets designed to fight us.

We are glad to see that change in nurse attire in the hospital. If you have not seen this you might have the change on your favorite hospital show. If you remember in the past scrubs have always been stuck with the same plain pastel colors. These scrubs have changed and been updated when you see what is available at nurse uniform stores. There are so many styles, colors, and designs that there is something for everyone. This is a great change for a nurse to be able to show off some flair and style as well as bringing a cheery outlook to their patients. We know that when the public is pressed into interaction at a hospital it is always the nurse that is the calming voice of reason in those troubled times. It is a great service to the medical industry that they can express a little freedom and be confident that they are still easily recognized as the professionals they are. This new era in style will cater to all medical professionals as they also have nursing uniforms for men and women. We also know that when medical professionals are dealing with children that being able to have a warm voice, kind heart and wearing cute little bunnies can make all the difference in being that calming influence to help a child relax and feel like they have a friend by their side.

There are times you read a report of something President Obama say and you scratch your head. Then there are other times you just get angry. That was the case when we heard President Obama it is reported is trying to put plans in motion to give the Commerce Department authority to create an Internet ID for all Americans. White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt said it is perfect spot in the U.S. government to create an identity ecosystem for the Internet. We are angry because how hard is this compared to trying to make a national ID card in a government-controlled system. Why is this easy to do but making sure every American is in the country legally impossible to do. Why can this be done but removing illegal aliens impossible to do. They are trying to say the importance of this is to enhance online security and privacy, and reducing or eliminate the need to memorize dozens of passwords. On the other hand does anyone really want the government this involved in their internet use? We do not believe Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt is naive but how can anyone think we need this or that it is even possible to implement.

When it comes to saying things that mean nothing President Barack Obama is the champion. If you did not hear he is revamping his economic policy team and signaling cooperation to ascendant Republicans and the business community at a pivotal moment in the nation’s recovery and Washington politics. We were wondering what this economic policy team has been doing anyway. When the president needs fresh new ideas and none of his ivy elites have a clue, he turns to the way back machine and looks for veterans of the Clinton administration. Chief of staff William Daley, economic overseer Gene Sperling and recently confirmed budget director Jacob Lew. When you listen to the talking head president he explains the new mission has to be to accelerate hiring and accelerate growth, this what the president declared last week. For the sake of the nation we hope this new found need to find value in international trade deals in an economic message centered on competitiveness that spends on education initiatives to retool the workforce embraces trade and provides tax breaks to businesses. Then at the same time he claimed a new focus looking at the deficit and debt. This is going to be highlighted when the president releases his budget. We think this should have been the priority last year after he pushed Obamacare through. We also have no faith he will provide any solutions or any progress on any of these issues. But we have come to understand if you could solve problems with speeches we would be in the US would be utopia.
We started to see the new run of the House Republicans first attempt to repeal President Barack Obamacare. Republican lawmakers know that any effort to repeal the health care law in will still need the Democratic Senate approval which will not happen. The vote was 236-181 procedural vote, largely along party lines, that sets the stage for the House to vote next week on the repeal. The bigger issue is Republican governors representing 30 states opened up a new line of attack, complaining that provisions of the health care law are restricting their ability to control Medicaid spending, raising the threat of devastating cuts to other critical programs, from education to law enforcement in a weak economy. We had a federal judge in Florida is expected to rule on the lawsuit brought by 20 states that challenges the law’s central requirement that most Americans carry health insurance. Remember a judge in Virginia ruled it unconstitutional last month, while in courts in two other cases have upheld it. It’s expected that the Supreme Court will ultimately have to resolve the issue. Republicans hope to force Obama and the Democrats into a defense mode right from the start. The only way the Republicans can insure repeal is with the election of a Republican president and one can only hope.

One day after we reported the sky was falling it turns out we are not the only one that think so. We are happy to say the House Republicans told the White House the request to raise the nation’s $14.3 trillion debt limit will require federal spending cuts to win their approval. We are hopeful Speaker of the House Boehner, can stick to his guns and cut government spending by at least $100 billion this year. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, has said the government could exhaust its borrowing authority of $14.29 trillion between March 31 and May 16. The new Republican Pledge to America, is the document the new House Republican candidates signed promised to pare most non-defense programs by $100 billion, the amount they said had been added since Obama took office. We love hearing congress talking about spending cuts and reforming a broken budget process we just hope this time it is more than words. We have stated many times that why our government continues to write checks it cannot cash is no way to run a country and if a citizen did it they would be arrested. It is time to make the hard choices and turn this country around once and for all. It sounds good in words and look even better on paper for some reason we will not hold our breathe on implementation.
Congrads America you national debt is now $14,011,526,727,895.85 did you ever think you would see 14 trillion in our lifetime. Like they say you have to have goals. We are growing the debt at a level our country has never seen before. We continue to spend more than we make. Congress continues to spend more than they can tax us. This is business as usual and it looks like it does not matter if you are democrat or conservative it just does not matter to them. They are even talking about raising the debt ceiling higher, so no one is taking the national debt issue as a crisis. The idea we can just make our children’s children and grandchildren’s children pay is a supported policy and not a strain on anyone we have sent to congress. We try our best as readers know we told you on June 16 that debt went over 13 trillion. That is right the new America raises the debt a trillion dollars every six months. We told you then 13 trillion is an astronomical number when you think this country on January 8, 1835 was the last day this country had a national debt of 0. So expanding on those thoughts it was only 11.4 trillion in June 2009. This means it is growing at a rate of 3.6 trillion every 18 months. We always like to remind you that it was 9.3 trillion in 2008 when President Bush left office. So we can finally point to something President Obama has done better than anyone under his watch the last two years the debt has rose 4.7 trillion which is the greatest growth of any U.S. resident in history.
