Several of us here at Mad As Hell And… have been attending the US Open golf championship this week and we have found the one place in the United States of America that has a surging and vibrant economy!

Washington DC!

Not that Washington DC having a vibrant and surging economy should surprise anyone since there are Trillions of Dollars of the American People’s hard-earned money pouring into this city and no doubt most of it being wasted by OUR “Elected Leaders” that have actually found a way in 2011 to spend almost…


while running a deficit that will approach $2 TRILLION DOLLARS this year!

That is Absolute Madness, but then any American visiting his or her Capital City would quickly see the full restaurants, the packed shopping centers and OUR “Elected Leaders” living like Roman Kings with little concern how much they are spending and borrowing and understand very quickly where all of OUR money is going!

One book that all of us have been reading the last few weeks is David Walker’s latest….

Comeback America, Turning Around the Country and Restoring Fiscal Responsibility

….and it is Great and Must read for All Americans that care about their country and the futures of their children and grandchildren.

Here is the Booklist review of Comeback America:

“It’s time for us to wake up—and wake up America—to the lethal threat of our own fiscal irresponsibility.” So states Walker, CPA and the government’s former top auditor, who now concentrates on raising public awareness of our nation’s growing deficits, increasing debt, and dependency on foreign lenders. He sets out to explain our fiscal situation in understandable terms, offers solutions, and helps us evaluate future programs that are heralded as “fair” or will “pay for themselves.” Walker explains our political culture in terms of what he sees as Washington’s malfunction. Questions that he suggests citizens ask of their government leaders: Has the government promised more than it can afford? Have politicians acknowledged that federal taxes must go up for more Americans than those designated “rich,” and are they just talking about fiscal responsibility without any action? Everyone will not agree with Walker, although he makes a compelling case for his views. Excellent book on critical issues as our economy slowly emerges from recession. –Mary Whaley”

Comeback America Initiative

Amen to that, but for all of the efforts by David Walker (If David Walker is reading this blog we would encourage him to run for the US Senate from Conn. because we believe you could have a real impact in America in the Senate), Pete Peterson and others that are trying to warn the American People and OUR “Elected Leaders” about the looming disaster for the American Republic, after spending a week in Washington DC talking to our good friends that work across the US Government we still don’t think most of these folks understand the dangers OUR country is facing and look no further than the economy and the over-the-top opulence of Washington DC to understand that reality.

As the “Washington-types” celebrate and laugh about all the American People’s hard-earned money that they waste on a US Government that is out-of-control it did not surprise us earlier this week that the White House Chief of Staff William Daley got an earful while meeting with executive from manufacturing companies earlier this week:

White House’s Daley seeks balance in outreach meeting with manufacturers, Washington Post

“It was supposed to be the White House’s latest make-nice session with corporate America — a visit by Chief of Staff William M. Daley to a meeting with hundreds of manufacturing executives in town to press lawmakers for looser regulations.

But the outreach soon turned into a rare public dressing down of the president’s policies with his highest-ranking aide.

One by one, exasperated executives stood to air their grievances on environmental regulations and stalled free-trade deals. And Daley, the former banker tasked with building ties with industry, found himself looking for the right balance between empathy and defending his boss.

At one point, the room erupted in applause when Massachusetts manufacturing executive Doug Starrett, his voice shaking with emotion, accused the administration of blocking construction on one of his facilities to protect fish, saying government “throws sand into the gears of progress.”

Daley said he did not have many good answers, appearing to throw up his hands in frustration at what he called “bureaucratic stuff that’s hard to defend.”

“Sometimes you can’t defend the indefensible,” he said.”

Yes, it is very hard to defend the “indefensible” William Daley but the very scary thing for of us that have seen the Government of California turn itself into the Biggest Job Killing Machine in the history of Man on Earth is that the Wacko Liberal Nuts that came to power in 2008 in Washington are of the same “ilk” that turned the former Golden State into the Broken State and now these folks seem determined to do the same to America!

Amazing as it sounds it may not only be the Wall Street Bastards that will be out of the business of capitalism (The Wall Street Casinos are now little but the Biggest Welfare Queens and Kings on Planet Earth and wouldn’t last five seconds in the Real World if the US Government and Federal Reserve weren’t bailing their Sorry Asses out on a regular basis) but the entire Damn American Republic may be going the same way as well and the reality of slow employment growth in this recession make perfect sense.

Why in the Hell would an employer hire employees when the US Government is now doing everything in its power to make life as difficult as possible for American employers?

Damn good question and meanwhile William Daley is over at the White House presiding over a bureaucracy in Washington DC that we have come to understand is just like the government bureaucrats in the Broken State of California that wake-up everyday of their lives and dream of ways to make the lives of the American People and American Employers as miserable as possible.

That is why there is slow job growth in America and look no further than the State of California which has a reported unemployment rate of almost 12 percent and a REAL unemployment rate of over 20 percent to see what lies ahead for America if the Wacko Liberal Nuts get their way!

Check out this story from the Broken State of California that is led by some of the Craziest Wacko Liberals Nuts that have ever walked on Planet Earth led by Jerry “I want your money and if I have to destroy every business and family in California to get it that is just what I will do” Brown:

Employers shed thousands of jobs in California and Bay Area during May, dealing setback to economy, San Jose Mercury News

Get ready to add thousands of more jobs that will leave California in the coming years to other American states where the state governments do not wake-up and wage war on businesses and it People!

A few of us were just visiting some cities to possibly open or locate businesses to in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia and we can report that there are some “government” types that don’t hate American business and the American People so there is some hope for the future of America!

Meanwhile back at the Congressional Country Club in Washington DC the “Washington Glitterati” are partying down and having a great time while the American Republic and American People suffer!

When they say “Cheers” in Washington DC and celebrate their affluence which is based up taking money form Hard Working Americans that now means “The American People can Go To Hell” and we could care less that we are becoming richer as the American People are being destroyed.
