Where is the Cash for Splash?The government is taking many millions of dollars from all of us, and there seems to be unlimited funds for the favored in our struggling economy, but where is the cash for splash? Throughout the country, pool builders are selling pools, only to have trouble getting them financed. Yet today, it has come to our attention that our government is loaning two billion dollars to drill for oil in…Brazil! George Soros, coincidentally, holds the largest holding in his hedge fund in Petrobras, the Brazilian company. We are lending money to Petrobras in order to drill offshore, while at the same time expanding drilling is prohibited in our own country!In the meantime, our own vehicles have to be filled up with expensive foreign oil each day, the financing has dried up for pools, and the cash for clunkers program is being prematurely closed amidst a chaos of mismanagement. We found out in Texas this year that not only did we need to run our businesses, but defend them and our customers against onerous and poorly thought out new legislation threatening to burden our customers with extra costs and us with untenable procedures.Fortunately we were successful in our “grassroots” efforts to modify this, but on a national level we need to be aware, informed about what is going on, and ready and willing to defend what we have worked to build. If Paul Revere were taking his midnight ride today, he might be shouting to us, “the socialists are coming, the socialists are coming!” Taxation without OUR representation to fund Brazilian oil drilling, helping cronies to make megabucks in the process is robbing us of our “cash for splash”! It may no longer be enough to be businesspeople- it is time to stand up to save private enterprise and also become patriots.This is only my humble opinion, and I respect yours as well, agree or disagree- but can you tell me why there is no cash for splash for We the People?
