Crack – Cocaine User Fair Choice Act

Really, from the same guy that has nothing good to say about American business, the markets, capitalism, the banking and financial industry, self-interest for pursuing a profit. The essence of our self – interested dynamic economy, public enemy #1 for this guy. Do a simple Google search on Obama + Greed and you will get 4,600,000 hits. It’s a central belief in the Obamanation camp that ‘greed’ is the virus and ill of our country that must be curtailed and stopped.

Back to priorities and the above AP story on the MSNBC site. Apparently there were/are Senate hearings on the issue of the ‘disparity of sentences handed out between crack cocaine vs powdered cocaine’ and the impact this has on ‘African Americans’. Quote from U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton to the Senate – “Jails are loaded with people who look like me.” Brilliant, from a Federal judge no less. No kidding jails are loaded with cocaine users that look like you, there are just as many that look just like me and Tom, Harry and Sally next door.

On to the illustrious Senator Dick Durbin – “Under current law, mere possession of five grams of crack — the weight of five packets of sweetener — carries the same sentence as distribution of half a kilogram of powder or 500 packets of sweetener.” He goes on to say ”81 percent of those convicted for crack offenses in 2007 were African-American, although only about 25 percent of crack cocaine users are African Americans.”

Therein lies another new agenda for the Obamanation and the liberal-leftists in congress – to make sure that cocaine users will be treated more fairly and not as if they were ‘dealers’. The Obamanation also expressing a belief in these changes while campaigning last year and now stressing ‘recovery and rehabilitation’ vs hard time for users. I wish that he had such feeling for America’s #1 Public Enemy, the self-directed business class. Better and easier to clamour for protection and leniency for cocaine users than tea-party protesters, small-business owners, and concerned taxpayers.

Creepy Media Adulation 100 Days

The fawning and adoring, adulating and drooling hyena media-types slobbering over the ”first 100 days” of the Obamanation. Did they get the talking points and even the concept of the ‘first 100 days’ of this administration? I sure don’t remember them doing this with Reagan or for that matter Bush in 2000. I bet that pols in the White House were sending out memos months ago to hype this turn in time. I’m sure of it. I watched the press conference from last night so that I could blog about it today, (otherwise I wouldn’t be able to stomach it). My opinion – just another long campaign commercial. Is America getting fatigue from this for God’s sake?

Highlights from the press conference include our leader admitting that waterboarding is ‘torture’ and that his banning of waterboarding was the ”right thing to do, regardless of whether or not waterboarding actually was effective” He then said that the information received from waterboarding could have been ”gotten in other ways, consistent with our values” How does he know this? What a revelation of arrogance. He thinks that he can practically part the oceans with his Messiahness. He then goes on to say that he isn’t sure that ”enhanced interrogation techniques made us safer and if other techniques would have worked instead.” Have you ever seen our national security being kicked around like a football like this? Arrogant, incompetent.

Jeff Zeleny from the NYT had the most slobbery question for the Obamanation, ”During this first 100 days, what has surprised you the most, enchanted you the most …” Enchanted? Really? Are you kidding me? What kind of question is that? Creepy Leninist media activity. A willing and able media, imagine a question like that for a conservative. Click here for my entry on the Media Leninist parallels.

Possibly the most telling quote – “we’ve begun the work of remaking America.” Take that as you may dear reader, I take that as an admission of what they are truly doing – expanding the state to Bolshevik proportions, curtailing our Constitution and individual freedoms, and bankrupting future generations.

A reader sent (tip of the hat, Matt D) me a New York Post slideshow that is the antithesis to the MSM portrayal of the first 100 days. Titled “100 Days, 100 Mistakes”, it goes point by point to every error and mishap the Obamanation owned in such a short time. Click here.


Obama on Tea Parties – the Hipocricy of the Community Activist

This morning I watched a good amount of the Obamanation’s town hall meeting in Missouri. It was mostly the typical Obamanation mantra of ”repeat a lie and it will eventually be believed.” I heard reiterations of greatest hits like ”95% of Americans getting tax cuts”, ”renewable” energy, ”tax cuts for the greedy rich” (can you believe how fervently they believe in the class warfare stuff?), and others. But it wasn’t until the Q&A afterwards that I saw something that really caught my eye.

In reference to a question on the tea parties the Obamanation replied “Those of you who are watching certain news channels on which I’m not very popular, and you see folks waving tea bags around, Obama said, “let me just remind them that I am happy to have a serious conversation about how we are going to cut our health care costs down over the long term, how we are going to stabilize Social Security.” “But let’s not play games and pretend that the reason is because of the Recovery Act.

Wow, what a defense of the largest increase in Federal government largess in US history. Having attended a tea party as well I will say that those in attendance were not demonstrating against the ”Recovery Act” ie. the ”Pork, Democrat grab-bag, spending bill”. People at tea parties were protesting against the general notion of the government squandering our nation’s resources and bankrupting future generations. A government that is so out of control that tea party goers felt that the entire financial viability of the US is at stake.

This is in direct contrast to the leftist – racist misfit ‘community organizer’ of which the Obamanation was a member. Definition of ‘community organizer’ from Wikipedia – Community organizing is a process by which people living in proximity to each other are brought together in an organization to act in their common self-interest

Sounds like tea party attendees? Doesn’t apply here because the tea party folk are demanding less forceful government interaction. Citizens demanding less, not holding their hands out claiming reparations for redress. They may have been claiming redress, but in a desire to be simply left alone and not taxed, shackled, and regulated into subsistence and serfdom. Imagine if hundreds of thousand of rabid ‘community organizer’ types had marched and protested in cities across the country?

FAA Memo Obtained by CBS: Feds Knew Air Force One Phot-Op Would Terrify

And they couldn’t have cared less –

Our government on many levels shows disdain for the public. We are sheep to be led to the slaughter. Or pawns for their schemes of the day. Or simply just means to their ends. These ends, subjective, ambiguous, shifting on a whim. A memo obtained today by CBS news in New York highlights the above, showing that Federal officials knew that the site of a jumbo jet lumbering about several hundred feet above Manhattan would create sheer panic. They knew this and then threatened sanctions against the NYPD, FBI, and the Mayor’s Office if they let this ‘flyover’ event be known beforehand to the public. What? No, folks this is not an error, the Federal Aviation Administration actually threatened sanctions against other branches of government if they warned the public. Outrageous? Idiotic? Insane?

The memo shows that the The flyover was ordered by the White House Office of Military Affairs for a ”Souvenir photo of Air Force One.” The Obamanation came out and said that it was ”a mistake and will never happen again.” I’m sure he didn’t know anything, right? He obviously thinks that Americans are absolutely stupid. For you folks in the press (for the most part), I would say this is correct. In a show of great statesmanship yesterday the Obamanation called for an internal investigation into what happened. This entire story simply just illustrates how different levels of our government in the US operate as a tax-funded cosa notra. ”If you squeal about the flyover, we’ll break your kneecaps.” They threatened sanctions!

And yet this isn’t a headline story for the Main Stream State Controlled Media. I didn’t see any of this on CNN, MSNBC, ABC and the local affiliates here in San Diego. It was all ”piggy-flu” mania, something the hyenas have all latched onto and not nearly the ‘crisis’ in my opinion that they are making it out to be.


RINOS Facing Extinction? Adios Arlen

Arlen Specter, every Conservatives favorite RINO Republicrat announcing today that he is leaving the Republican party. Please make sure the door hits you on your way out. From the NYT, “Since my election in 1980, as part of the Reagan Big Tent, the Republican Party has moved far to the right…” Really? Horse hockey folks, the Republican party is nothing like it was in 1980 when the Reagan-era started, the party of Goldwater, Reagan, Milton Friedman. The Big-Government Rockefeller types have been in control of the party for years really, the last big hoorah for fiscal conservatives was the 1994 Republican congress victory. What is he even talking about? Better to know and compete against your enemy than to have one your midst.

A recent Rasmussen poll came out that shows Pat Toomey, a former congressman and founder of the Club for Growth, beating Specter by 20% amongst primary voters. Apparently Specter saw the writing on the wall and rather than fight through a primary season and have a high chance of losing, he decided to jettison the Republican Party and then blame the party for being to ‘right-wing’. I wish he had done this ten years ago. Adios Mr. Liberal…

Political fallout from this seems to be that Democrats now have a filibuster-proof Senate, also due to Franken’s likely win against Coleman in Minnesota. The Liberals will have an easy time to ram through their agenda now, I’m not sure that Specter has changed this. Under pressure I am certain that he would have voted with the Democrats on key bills anyway.

Rober Gibbs on the Plane Scare – Contact the White House?

Press conference yesterday with Press Secretary Gibbs, new levels of naked incompetence here regarding the Air Force One photo-flap.

Reporter to Gibbs, “Do you feel you owe folks in NYC this morning an apology for this incident…there seemed to be a lot of panic.”

Gibbs eloquently, “I will point you to FAA or Air Force…”

Reporter, on getting to the bottom of this, ”Everybody is pointing us to the White House military office, so that’s why….”

Gibbs brilliantly, “Well then I would contact the White House…I uh..I..uh..”

Certainly NYC folks should feel so much better after hearing the official spokesman for the White House, really clearing up the confusion here. Contact the White House? You are the official mouth of the White House! Are you kidding me here? I have never seen anything like this.


Let’s get a Photo-Op over the World Trade Center Site but not Tell Anyone – Obamanation

Does the Swine flu have you nervous? The piggie-flu is just a distraction to New Yorkers, a distant second to a spectacle concerning what looked like a hijacked jet.Earlier today thousands of people looked up into the sky and saw a 747 jet flanked by an Air Force fighter jet making provocative maneuvers. Soon thereafter employees at the New York Mercantile Exchange, Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch and other institutions evacuated their buildings, sending thousands of citizens fleeing to the street and prompting hundreds of emergency 9-11 calls. When the dust had cleared and the ‘stunt’ became apparent, NYC Mayor Bloomberg came out with a press briefing admitting that city officials and the federal government hadn’t properly warned the public. The Obamanation also expressed outrage and Louis Caldera, the director of the White House military office took the blame. I’m sure it was all laid at his feet.
Confused? I was too. From what I am reading, it seems that the Obamanation Administration had been planning a photo-op of Air Force One with the Statue of Liberty in the background?!?! Wow, that sounds great, tough on terror, right? Can’t you hear it in the public classroom -” Look Johnny 2nd grader, there’s a poster of Obama and Air Force One with the Statue of Liberty in the background, let’s put this in every classroom along with a huge Hope and Change banner in Collectivist colors!” Woohoo!
Today, this flight took place without proper communication between fed and city officials and the sight of a low-flying jumbo jet horrified many lower Manhattan residents. I really feel for these people in NYC.

This is shockingly insane dear reader, can you imagine if such a stunt occured during the Bush administration? Can you imagine how many times over the outrage from the howling media hyenas would be heard? And to compare this with the “Mission Accomplished” Bush flap? This kind of behaviour and antics reminds me of a Banana Republic. Apparently I’m reading here now too that several agencies were notified but the public was out of the loop. Can you imagine this? Can you imagine walking out of your office and seeing a plane circling the lower Manhattan area at altitudes as low as 150 to 100 feet? According to one eye witness, it looked like the plane was ”heading for the Goldman Sachs building.” This is unprecedented. Watch the videos below to see for yourself.

Remember these same people that can’t even coordinate the photo-op flight of the ‘backup’ Air Force One (and I’m sure Obama was behind this too), want more control over our lives at every point. They have the American public corralled and frightened and want more of our hard-earned dollars, appeasement to our enemies, control of the health-care system, total control over the economy. And they prove every day just how disastrous this is. Big Government kills the human spirit. In this case, by unnecessary sheer panic and heart attack.

Obamanation Going the British Route – Why That’s not a Good Thing

I’ve done several posts about the British press lately, here’s one regarding tax legislation in the UK. High income earners, especially in the financial and banking sectors in Great Britain are eyeing the possibility of moving out of the country. Why? PM Gordon Brown’s Labour (liberal) Party’s recent proposal to boost income tax rates over $220,000.00 to 50%. Sound familiar fellow Americans? From the Bloomberg article above –

”The initiative is part of the government’s efforts to contain a planned budget deficit of 12.4 percent of gross domestic product, Britain’s biggest in peacetime. The Treasury expects the tax to raise about 2.2 billion pounds next year when government borrowing will be 173 billion pounds. Darling’s budget calls for 703 billion pounds of deficits in the five years through April 2014.” Basically translated folks here, this means that the UK government is going to squeeze high-income, high-achievers (just like our liberals here desire), and come up with 2 billion of a 173 billion shortfall. So basically they are going to risk a mass migration of the business class for a drop in the bucket change in their budget. Incompetence and populist pandering on an Obamanation level.

Apparently there is another angle to the story. From Bloomberg – “There is a populist side to this message: Let’s over-tax the rich,” said French-born Philippe Houchois, 45, an analyst in London for Zurich-based UBS AG. The state is encouraging this anger “against banks, against the financial sector.”
According to British polling, a majority of the public believes that raising taxes is a good idea. Sound familiar again? ‘Fairness’ trumps sound economic policy in the UK as well. Never mind if the rich are going to say ‘adios’ to their country, it’s ‘fair’ that they pay more taxes. Never mind that they will pay the highest top rate in Europe, even higher than France.
The Uk is the Unites State’s canary-in-the-coal-mine. Economically they are 10, 20 years ahead of us with liberal social spending. Look at where they are at.


Ex Soviet-Union Tactics Used Against Global Warming Skeptic, Nostril Batman Spills the Beans

Earlier this week the Democrat leadership in the House announced that they would entertain the presence of some sort of ‘celebrity speaker’ on the global warming topic. This speaker was in regard to debate on the cap and trade legislation (the so-called ‘American Clean Energy and Security Act), taking place in the Committee on Energy and Commerce. That is a mouthful, stay with me dear reader, this is interesting.

When the minority Republicans heard of this ‘celebrity’ speaker they decided to invite a certain Lord Christopher Monckton of the UK, a renowned global-warming skeptic and great debater on the topic. Pictured left, he also served as Science Advisor to former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and is Chief Policy Adviser for the Science and Public Policy Institute in Britain. Click here for his point by point rebuttal of Al Gore’s movie . As I did more research on him this morning I found that he is a great defender of free markets and individual liberty. Once again, as in yesterdays post, I find the independent British as a clarion voice against the Statist ills thrust upon us in the United States. Click here for a great 10 minute lecture in which he debates many of the inaccurate claims of the global-warming cult in Britain.

As it were, word came out that the famed Albert Gore Junior would be the Democrats ‘mystery speaker’ (Oh my God, I’m shocked). Whilst Monckton was air-bound, Committee Chairman Henry Waxman, (pictured to the right), caught wind that Monckton would be the opposing speaker. Waxman and Democrats quickly rescinded the Republicans choice to debate Gore. Monckton’s plane arrived and he was shortly told thereafter that he would not be able to speak. Instead Newt Gingrich was ‘allowed’. Free speech, settled science? Who says the face of evil is not ugly, ( I’d say it is, confirmed in the picture above)?

So the hearings go on, Al Gore highlights his appearance by saying that people that question the validity of ‘global-warming’ are the Bernard Madoffs of the world (?!?). See for yourself below.

Now we come to Newt Gingrich and his rebuttal to Gore. He has some great points here, calling Gore’s assertions ”deeply misleading”, pointing out that U.S. energy reserves far outstrip Gore’s assertions, debunks Gore’s 20′ rise in seal level, and more below.

Now hold your stomach, here comes Waxman, as described above, the nostrilly version of Bald Batman. You’d think with that piggy-looking sniffer, he’d be able to smell the scam of global warming? Nostril Batman starts out here comparing Cap and Trade to the Clean Air Act. Definition of the Clean Air Act here. Clearly the Clean Air Act is an EPA regulatory law, vs a direct ‘carbon’ tax. Second grade knowledge here. He then accuses Newt of ”scare tactics”, “attacking democrats and the president”and then banters about on procedural rules on letting Gingrich rebut, eventually acquiescing. Then the whole enchilada here folks. At 2:55 Waxman lets the cat out of the bag so to speak. He clues us in to the entire Leftist agenda, the Obamanation, the Radicals that want to transform our country into a 3rd tier nation right in front of our eyes. “The 600+ billion tax increase in Obama’s budget is not a tax because it will be redistributed!” And there it is, I could have skipped this entire post and not bothered, if only I had just seen this right off the ‘bat’, no pun intended.


US Newspapers Dying – I Don’t Care, I’m Reading the Daily Telegraph

The New York Times? The San Francisco Chronicle? Washington Post? Stalwart defenders of free-speech, the Constitution and individual citizens? Not quite, unless you don’t mind liberal-statist proselytizing, gutter-level celebrity worship, urban-violence ambulance-chasing and general incompetence. Check my other blog entry on my pathetic interaction with the San Francisco Chronicle.

I find myself jettisoning the U.S. press and turning to the Politics section of the Daily Telegraph. Founded in London in 1855 (check picture to the left), and a voice of the Conservative party in Great Britain, the paper offers a unique personality and take on U.S. politics. Mind you I am not reading the print version so I cannot confess to smudgy-black fingertips. Nevertheless I love what I see here. There’s a certain air of London pub-chatter and punch throwing that good red-blooded Brits offer up. Has anyone seen a parliament debate from the UK? It’s almost as if the lawmakers arrive to debate after spending most of the day at the pub.

I came across a piece from Daniel Hannan, the man made famous amongst conservative circles a few weeks back with his tirade against PM Gordon Brown. Titled “If You Pay People to be Poor, You’ll Never run of of Poor People.” From this piece –
Poverty is not simply an absence of money. Rather, it is bound up with a whole set of other circumstances: lack of qualifications, demoralisation, family break-up, substance abuse, fatherlessness. It follows that you do not end poverty by giving money to the poor: a theory that British welfarism has amply demonstrated over 60 years. Only when you tackle poverty holistically will you facilitate meaningful improvement.

I come to another interesting author, a man by the name of Gerald Warner, the side note on him says,”If it is an exaggeration to say that he believes the world has gone to the dogs, it is only a slight hyperbole.” This is the British style of which I speak, great command of the English language.

His column today titled ”Barack Obama and the CIA: why does President Pantywaist hate America so badly?” Now that is a headline, can you imagine this in the NYT? Beginning of the piece – ”If alQaeda, the Taliban and the rest of the Looney Tunes brigade want to kick America to death, they had better move in quickly and grab a piece of the action before Barack Obama finishes the job himself. Never in the history of the United States has a president worked so actively against the interests of his own people – not even Jimmy Carter.”
Clearly unfit to print in the U.S., it takes a boozy-brit to say it like this. Is our press so diluted as to not even see this? Does it take the vastness of the oceans separating us to clear the intellectual fog and cut to the chaste like this? Bravo Mr. Warner.

The close of his piece – ”President Pantywaist’s recent world tour, cosying up to all the bad guys, excited the ambitions of America’s enemies. Here, they realised, is a sucker they can really take to the cleaners. His only enemies are fellow Americans. Which prompts the question: why does President Pantywaist hate America so badly?”


The Religion of Environmentalism – Price is Right Goes Green on Earth Day

You know that a political movement and identity reaches quasi-religion, (if not outright), status when a culture is permeated and saturated with this identity. From the Ivory Towers of academia, to elementary schools, from Saturday morning cartoons to prime-time news, our entire population is inundated with a daily assault of ‘green’, ‘carbon footprint’, ‘global warming’ propagandizing. Anyone notice the recent polling data that shows a third of children believe the earth will enter some sort of environmental apocalypse? The definition of religion according to the Webster Dictionary –

  1. a personal set or institutionalized system of religious attitudes, beliefs, and practices
  2. (archaic) : scrupulous conformity
  3. a cause, principle or system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith
So let’s go over the above definitions of religion and the comparison to environmentalism.
  1. Attitudes – atoning for one’s sins via carbon credits, even the (seemingly) innocent concept of recycling. Beliefsthe ‘global warming’ mantra is clearly a faith or belief and in many ways not a ‘settled’ science. Remember Al Gore’s comments on the validity of ‘global warming’ being ”settled”. Not to mention his refusal to discuss and debate the scientific merits as with many of his ‘global warming’ peers. Faith, clear and simple. Practices – check above.
  2. The archaic definition here, conformity. Any debate on the fact that if you disagree with the science in today’s ‘global warming’ debate that you are treated fairly? Holocaust denier ring a bell?
  3. Causes, principles and systems held with ardor and faith ‘Eco-defense’, ‘earth-liberation’, ‘global-warming’, ‘sustainable living’, ‘eco-terrorism’, ‘earth-day’ and many others.

So now that we have this out of the way, back to the title of this blog entry. The local am radio talk show host Chip Franklin here in San Diego quipped this morning that ‘earth-day mania’ had reached such a zenith and that the tv show “The Price is Right” had an earth-day special yesterday. If you watch the youtube video I posted you’ll note that Drew Carey quips at the beginning saying “Have you hugged the earth today, have you? Go out and hug the earth.” Knowing that Mr. Carey is a fellow Libertarian and interested in the cause of liberty, I laughed at this. He clearly had a besmirched look on his face. During this ‘green’ episode, contestants had the chance to win a hammock, and trip to Austria, a seemingly ungreen thing, the moderator said that ‘since it was ‘earth day’ that there would be a voluntary contribution to a carbon-footprint offsetting organization (pheww, that was close.) Also up for grabs were an electric bicycle, (pedalling is causing ‘global warming?), an electric-solar golf-cart(what if it’s not sunny on the course?), and a Toyota Prius.

I don’t want to read into this too much but come on, greenie Price is Right? Our culture has reached the saturation point with the environmental nonsense, frankly I’m tired of it. Does such a saturation level indicate a tipping point in which the public will be more suspect of the agenda? Hard to say but I think that we can see some of the public tide turning with ‘global warming.’ We have a lot of work to do.

Bush is the Devil, Obamanation and Hollywood my Amigos, my Presidential Rival Soon a Jailbird

A handshake and a grin with a pathetic dictator, a stunningly ignorant defense to the press, an unprecedented photo-op for despot validation. All in a days work for our Fearless Leader. Ignorance and naivete on this new elevated level for our white house brings Hollywood to mind. Remember when the news hit that our beloved Oliver Stone was pow-wowing with Chavez due to his upcoming movie portraying the ”South American Revolution?” No-doubt an apologetic Red slobber-fest. Pathetic, Stone should be barred entry into the U.S. when he goes oversees and pals with dictators (he did the same with Fidel 5 years ago). Then again if was barred access back into America, would we have to do the same for the Obamanation? Clearly progressive pols (Obamanation, Pelosi, etc) and the Hollywood Left (Stone, Penn, etc) suffer from the same mental dysfunction. Oliver Stone’s ”Fidel and Chavez are great guys, I’m a fan” is the equivalent to the Obamanation’s “We can talk and laugh and thanks for the book.”

Yesterday the Chavez government ordered the arrest of opposition leader Manuel Rosales. Rosales ran against Chavez in the 2006 ‘election.’ Remember, the same election that Jimmy Carter showed up at and ‘certified’? Click here. Venezuelan prosecutors ordered Rosales’s arrest after saying he “has shown he isn’t willing to present himself” (in court). Rosales, until recently was mayor of Maracaibo and has been in hiding. Really? This isn’t rocket-science folks. See how things work in Leftist dictatorships? See why it is so disturbing that our intelligensia, academia, and even our own President don’t get it? Maybe they do.


The Brilliant Obamanation Doctrine – Why is Fidel Angry?

Fidel Castro coming out today, angrily declaring that the Obamanation misinterpreted Raul Castro’s recent remarks that made it seem that Cuba may open up democratically. Of course our media here made it look like the sheer oozing charisma and brilliance of the Obamanation was going to be a game-changer regarding Cuba. And so everyone thought that Raul Castro meant it when he promised to “discuss human rights, freedom of the press and expression, and political prisoners on the island”

Sounds good, right? No such luck – a communist state web site posted an Essay from Hollywood’s president Castro (even more than the Obamanation), in which he shot down his brother’s softened stance as of late and poured cold water on the subject.

Maybe the White House will post this essay on their website and our Leader can respond to each of the most important points –

Castro – “My brother was Affirming that the president of Cuba is ready to discuss any topic with the president of the United States expresses that he’s not afraid to broach any subject.”

Obamanation -“We will not ask anything of you more than a photo-op, and if you want to rant and rave in my presence for an hour, I will sit idly by and ‘listen’. All international opinions are relative, hear about my new doggy?”

Castro – ”Nobody should assume that he was talking about pardoning those sentenced in March 2003 and sending all of them to the United States, if the country were willing to liberate the five Cuban anti-terrorist heroes.”

Obamanation – “No problem here, I’ll see if I can put these guys in Guantanamo right before we close it, that way I can immediately release them when we close and we can talk thereafter, sound good?”

Castro – “Obama is showing signs of superficiality” (read: my american counterpart isn’t quite meeting expectations)

Obamanation – “Brother Fidel, remember, patience is key, things must happen more slowly here in the U.S., keep your eyes to the sky.”

Truth is stranger than fiction.


John McCain Vs. Chris Simcox, 2010

The Obamanation. The perfect storm election-creation of a dissatisfied Republican limited government grass-roots, a fawning orgasmic media, Hollywood adoration, minority and hippie-youth cult following, and John McCain. Known for great hits such as McCain/Feingold (censorship), McCain/Kennedy (amnesty from a Republican), supporting ‘global-warming’ legislation, voting for pork-laden Bush budget-busting whilst crying against pork, and many other RINO greatest hits. He played a large part in Republicans staying home and saying ‘no’ to 4 years of more big-government Republicanism.

Enter Chris Simcox. Founder of the Minuteman campaign, tough on illegal-immigration, capitalist, young and well-spoken, Mr. Simcox is running in the Arizona primaries against our favorite RINO that gave us the Obamanation. Long-shot? Maybe but check him out above. If you like what you see, make a small donation (I’m going to), or if you live in AZ, do some campaigning for him. What a stunning message this would be to the Republican establishment if Mr. Simcox spanked McCain in the primaries. Conservatives need to put their mouths where their money is in 2010, Arizona primary voters need to vote for this guy!

Kuwait’s Ward Churchill

The above is a chilling rebuttal of the “I’d like to meet with despotic dictators, shake their hands, get a book deal with them, and get photographed with an ear-to-ear grin with them” , aka the Obama Doctrine. Apparently this man is a certain Dr. Abdallah Al-Nafisi. A Cambridge educated poli science major that got his PHD at Cambridge. Of course he did, what does this tell us about academia? From research on the net too I found that he has been a visiting professor at Harvard and Stanford as well as having been in the Kuwaiti Parliament (he was raised in Kuwait). I though everyone in Kuwait loved the U.S.? Here is his website in Arabic. Great WND article here.

This comment was the most telling to me were “Four pounds of anthrax – in a suitcase this big – carried by a fighter through tunnels from Mexico into the U.S., are guaranteed to kill 330,000 Americans within a single hour Using Mexico to disseminate a biological weapon? Nah, that would never happen. Concerned citizens in San Diego have been warning the public about the possibility of terrorist gaining entry into the U.S. via the porous border for years!

He goes on in the video with other faboulous tidbits such as – “white militia members” in the U.S. who are “calling to attack the federal government in Washington, and to banish the Arabs, the Jews and the negroes (sic) from the U.S.” “These are racist people. They are called ‘rednecks.’ The Ku Klux Klan. They are racists.” Sounds like the DHS report, is this guy consulting with Napolitano to paint all conservatives as mad-hat bomber types?

The best rebuttal of the Obama-Doctrine – “Allah states in the Quran that the hostility between us and [the Jews] is eternal. So whoever talks about dialogue – cut off his tongue! What dialogue are they talking about?! There is no room for dialogue. Allah said that our hostility towards the Jews is eternal, and then along comes someone and talks about brotherhood and so on … This contradicts the Quran. Anyone who contradicts the Quran is an infidel.” This is the mentality that Ahmadinejad, Chavez, et al. are supporting and our own government via Obamanation appeasement and propagandizing validation are condoning. Disagree?


Chavez to Obama – “Here’s my Favorite Book, Amigo”

They say that you can judge a man by the company that he keeps (not to mention the content of his character). A photo is also worth a thousand words. The above was released yesterday by the Venezuelan government, taken at the Summit of the Americas yesterday. Will they use this photo-op as a propaganda tool? Apparently it took the White House (upon inquiries) over three hours to confirm the friendly handshake and meeting. From the pictures I saw, the men were obviously enthusiastic about each other. Take from that what you will.
The biggest part of this story for me is something that I caught watching a Reuters slideshow of the event. Apparently at the offset of their cordial meeting, Chavez extended a book to Obama as a gift. Obama accepted the gift with a glowing, toothy smile. Asked later about the book, “I thought it was one of Chavez’s books,” I was going to give him one of mine.”
Before I give you, dear reader, the name and content wherein of the book, I did a quick search on Amazon and got a few reviews to see what ‘others’ thought of it –
“A superbly written, excellently translated, and powerfully persuasive expose which all students of Latin American and U.S. history must read.”–Choice
“Well written and passionately stated, this is an intellectually honest and valuable study.”–Library Journal
“A dazzling barrage of words and ideas.”–History

Wow, this sounds great doesn’t it? Maybe the volume contains inspiring stories of the ancient civilizations of the Aztec, Inca, and Mayan Indians? Easter Island? Perhaps allusions to the rich culture and spirit of the people of Venezuela? Maybe it paints pictures in words of Christopher Columbus’s voyages to the region?

We should all be more cynical. In what is sure to become bedside reading material for the Obamanation, the book is titled in Spanish “Las Venas Abietas de America Latina” . A direct translation is “Open Veins in Latin America : Five Centuries of Pillage, authored by an Eduardo Galeano.

Sounds innocent enough? “Open Veins” (maybe it’s about South-American surgeons?). ”Five Centuries”, (maybe it has something to do with Obama’s Five Pillars?) Nope, the term ‘pillage’ should have clued you in here. Simply put, it’s an anitcapitalist treatise. Listen to this review from Resistance Books, an Aussie communist book club, (read ‘Red’ Amazon.com down under) –

”Eduardo Galeano’s classic analysis of the effects and causes of capitalist underdevelopment in Latin America presents a clear, passionate account of almost 500 years of the history of the continent. He shows how foreign companies reaped huge profits from their operations in Latin America. He explains the politics of the Latin American bourgeois and their subservience to foreign powers, and how they interacted to create increasingly unequal capitalist societies. With an introduction by Isabel Allende.”

Well said comrade


Civil Liberties Don’t Apply to Conservatives – DHS

AP story today that highlights the fact that the DHS pushed through the recent ‘Right-Wing Extremist’ report regardless of known civil liberty concerns. Nothing shocking here. I’ll make this one simple, the DHS knew full well that singling out illegal-immigrant opponents, right-to-lifers, gun-owners, vets and others as possible security threats is a clear infringement on their rights. Can you imagine if the DHS under Bush and Co. had issued a report showing that environmentalists, feminists, and gays were security threats? And then substantiating this allegation with one lone wacko from 15 years ago (read McVeigh)? I don’t think so and can only imagine what the howling hyenas in the Mainstream Media would do if this were the case. Outrage of the day from a large stack of stuff…..


Oceanside Tea Party!

Today I attended the Tea Party in Oceanside Californian, a coastal city north of San Diego. It was encouraging to see so many concerned citizens expressing their dissafection with the current regime in our government(s). As this four-sided sign expresses, this is not a Democrat/Republican issue.

I talked to an Oceanside PD officer and I quote, ” This is the most peaceful rally I have ever seen.” Are you listening main stream media? Porbably not.

This is a couple, husband and wife who make their living trucking. I jumped up the platform on the side here, grabbed the rail on the side and said “God bless you guys, I appreciated you making a stand and being here”

Yes I did, the Treasury Secretary however, that’s another story, one set of rules for we ‘peasants’, one set for elitists……

Obamasham, Awesome!

The crowd gathered here to throw tea into the sea….

Queen Pelosi, not amongst us…..

Americans at Tea Parties on April 15th, Obamanation – ”I’m With Stupid”

“My administration has taken far-reaching action to give tax cuts to the Americans who need them” – Obamanation

A repeated lie does not make a truth. In Washington la-la land it does. Apparently the Obamanation thinks that it does too. The above jewel was uttered by none other than him on Tax Day today, a day that most Americans loathe. He touted having his part in the ”most progressive tax cut in American History”,(wow those damn rich people have it coming). Click here for quotes from the Father of progressive taxation. He said that he was getting rid of “unnecessary giveaways that have thrown our tax code out of balance”. Check back to the quotes for the real meaning behind this. He then went to say that wealthy Americans are ”extremely lucky”. Of course all wealth comes from luck, not hard work, drive and determination.

Most unnerving was the pathetic display today of various American that the Obamanation had on the stage behind him. These he called examples of ”working families” that he is standing for, clearly poor souls that decades of wealthy folk’s decadence have hurt. He even (gasp, wow!) highlighted a gentleman in this group as being involved in a business that is thriving in the renewable energy business. Obviously he’s making a profit but since it is in one of the protected liberal special interest business groups, he is to be applauded, and not ‘lucky’. Once again, God help us.

Team America Redux – Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton today in typical liberal fashion, calling for Somali officials to go after ‘land bases’ that pirates use to attack ships, adding that the U.S. will attempt to freeze the pirates assets. Does anyone really think that the pirates (terrorists), have liquid assets that the U.S. can find and freeze? Oh yes, the have brokerage accounts at Schwabb and are known to be avid day traders. Really! Obviously preposterous. As far as ‘land bases’ and the Somali’s aid, do I need to go back to the 90’s and remind everyone of the Black Hawk Down incident? Does Team America (read Hillary) really think she can make a few phone calls to the Somalis and ‘bingo’, a quick raid on their Centcom, problem solved? God help us.

You are a Right-Wing Nutjob, Monitoring Starts Now – U.S. Department of Homeland Security

They’ve done it. They’ve finally drawn the dots between Militia Members, Mad-hat Bombers, Neo-Nazis, various nuts and fruits and their equivalents – Pro-lifers, Military Vets, Freedom-Lovers, Constitutionalists, NRA Members, Border Protectors, Libertarians and Conservatives, and all Concerned Citizens.
A new DHS memo, apparently acquired by an insider concerned citizen does just that. Read it and see for yourself. It is most striking to me that the Obamanation is using the DHS to go after conservatives and anyone against the Socialist agenda. You are now labelled a Mad-Hat Kook dangerous to the Union. You shall be monitored. You shall have Bush-era counter terrorist government powers used against you.
Several years ago I predicted this. I predicted that if the Radical Left ever got their hands on the counter-terrorist powers granted to the Bush Administration (ie. wiretapping, surveillance, etc), they would turn it against conservatives. They are doing just that, only 3 months into the Obamanation’s governance. God help us for the next FOUR years.


Obamanation Five Pillars

Key Excerpts from the speech,

(My take italicized)

“To begin with, economists on both the left and right agree that the last thing a government should do in the middle of a recession is to cut back on spending.” Really? This is it? We should burden future generations with unbridled debt and this is the best he can do?

“Second of all, I absolutely agree that our long-term deficit is a major problem that we have to fix. But the fact is that this recovery plan represents only a tiny fraction of that long-term deficit. As I will discuss in a moment, the key to dealing with our deficit and debt is to get a handle on out-of-control health care costs – not to stand idly by as the economy goes into free fall. ” I actually heard this part whilst driving down the coast. I felt like throwing something at a seagull at this point. Are you kidding me? Health care has nothing to do with the deficit for God’s sake, runaway federal spending on all fronts is the cause. 2nd grade math here. Another straw man for political gain.

There is a parable at the end of the Sermon on the Mount that tells the story of two men. The first built his house on a pile of sand, and it was destroyed as soon as the storm hit. But the second is known as the wise man, for when “…the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house…it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.” Ok so a parable here, I digress but more on my take of this later.

But the only way to truly spark this transformation is through a gradual, market-based cap on carbon pollution, so that clean energy is the profitable kind of energy. Some have argued that we shouldn’t attempt such a transition until the economy recovers, and they are right that we have to take the costs of transition into account. But we can no longer delay putting a framework for a clean energy economy in place. This one is simple – force socialism and a Marxist government scheme for ‘carbon-credits’ on a people regardless of bad economic conditions – Socialism cannot wait!

Now to my Five Pillars –

Pillar 1. Debt-ridden, insovent taxpayer

Pillar 2. Debt-ridden, insovent future taxpayer(s)

Pillar 3. Future 10% inflation and devaluation of the dollar

Pillar 4. Collectivism and Statism sold to us with a silver tongue and a smile

Pillar 5. One giant industrial paper shredder for the Constitution


John Coleman – Global Warming Scam

Local San Diego weatherman and founder of the Weather Channel John Coleman is courageous. He decided several years ago to stand up against the juggeraut behind the global warming scam power grab. He has turned his stand against the leviathon global warming political movement into an almost daily activism and I must commend him.

Recently I read Coleman’s brilliant piece The Amazing Story Behind the Global Warming Scam in which he details the beginnings of the movement and the deeply political nature of the cause from the start. Politics at the start was the clear motivation, not science. The entire notion of warming and the greenhouse effect started in 1957 in a scientific paper co-authored by a man named Roger Revelle of Scripps Oceanographic Institute in San Diego. According to Coleman’s research, this man is the grandfather of the global warming movement, leading the groundwork lockstep with scientists, academics, celebs, politicians and pundits. This was a cause that the left loved! They could rally around a man-made pollutant (carbon-dioxide), and fund every cause their hearts desired. Paramount obviously being control of the economy. In 1963 Revelle left Scripps and went to Harvard to establish a Center for Population Studies. It was during this time and using this platform that he disseminated his warming theories and had profound impact on a particular undergrad – Albert Gore Junior.

Years later something strange happened. In 1991 Revelle (the grandfather) was forced out of Harvard and decided to rethink the theory of global warming. He co-authored a scientific article for Cosmsos magazine. He had second thoughts, wasn’t quite convinced of the hypotheses and apparently didn’t like the politics of it any more, feeling that governments and activists were using the issue as a way to gain footing on economic control. Indeed Revelle, the early mentor of Al Gore at Harvard lost confidence in the entire theory. It was too late, Revelle passed away from a heart attack 3 months later.


Bailout Mutual Funds?!?!

This one came to the top of my stack ‘o stuff for the weekend. The Obamanation administration is toying with the idea of giving the American public the chance to buy mutual funds invested in toxic loans. The asset and theme is similar to the “Liberty Bonds” that the public were encouraged to buy during World War I. Inherently the same toxic loans that caused so much economic damage and prompted all of the bailouts would be packaged up and sold to the public like stock. The Obamanation think that this may quell some of the populist anger toward the Bailout Bandits and Wall Street. It is being hailed by Pimco’s Gross (liberal), and Geithner our favorite elf-boy lookalike Treasury Secretary. These guys all think that this is just a genius move and once our 201ks and IRAs recover because we bought some of these Bailout Mutual Funds, we’ll soon forget the trillions flushed down the toilet and forced onto our grandchildren via debt and higher taxes. Wow! Amazing, that they could come up with something this incredible. This has to work! America will be saved! Where’s my broker? Dialing…..dialing….he’s not picking up….

Obamanation Half-Brother ‘Sex-Assailant’ – British Authorities

Can you imagine if a Conservative president had an overseas half-brother that was accused by the Brits of attacking a 13 year old girl? Front-page news in every newspaper? Network news circling like rabid hyenas? Talking heads foaming at their collective yappers? Yep, you bet that would be the case but I haven’t heard a ‘peep’ on this story here in the States. Leave it to the British Times newspaper to pull this one up. It seems Samson was refused entry to Britain on grounds of deception. Authorities quickly linked him to a sex attack in Berkshire. Yikes.


Possible Tax Revolt in Taxifornia?

We’ve done it. We humble residents of the Golden State now have the highest income tax now of any state in the union clocking in at 10.425 %. We are close on sales tax as well, at close to 10%. For you self-employed California Obamanite high-income earners (leave while you can, it’s your fault), you will soon bask in the glow of combined State + Federal tax levies in excess of 50% of your hard-earned income. Change We Can Believe In! How do I do this math you say? It’s simple, let’s say that you are an entrepreneur toiling over a great business idea for years and your dream has finally come to fruition right in the middle of the Obamanation and the Schwarzenegger/Sacramento madness. You have a great year thanks to your years of struggle and have taxable personal income of say $400,000.00 net of deductions. I am assuming a young, non-coital (gasp!), person full of ambition. Here’s how the tax liability will go –

  1. Federal income tax = $133,510 (the upcoming Obamanation top rate of 39%)

  2. CA income tax = $39,781.00 (this amount could be higher, ‘only’ based on the new 10.425% rate, some subject to 10.55%)

  3. Self-Employment tax = $22,943.00 (this one may go up as the Obamanation has toyed with the idea of lifting the Social Security tax cap set at $106,800 to all income)

Total = $196,234.00

Amazing, it isn’t 50% (yet?)

Anyone think he should pay more? Less?

Blade Runner Pistol on the Auction Block.

Sci-fi nuts and fans rejoice! Big bucks to spare? Maybe you’ll have a chance to pick up this pistol donned by Harrison Ford in the cult classic ”Blade Runner” circa 1982. One of my favorite movies of all time, sure would be a collector’s dream to get a hold of this….


Shining City Upon a Hill – Burning City of Rome

Envision a far-off country that is the envy of the world, a land of riches and freedom, of happiness and the pursuit of it. A country and society made of rules and laws not of man but of a Constitution. A Constitution standing the test of time and melded through people from all walks of life to create the most prosperous civilization ever known to mankind. From Africa to Antarctica this Country, this Nation, this People represent hope for individuals to chase their own initiative by their own free-will and volition.

Envision many decades ago in this society. Academics in Ivory Towers pontificating in their lecture halls on the errors and evils of this society, this shining city upon a hill. Pundits decry excesses, racism, greed, egoism in their news pages and publications. Politicians call for a public to flush the notions of capitalism and rugged individualism. “It is wrong for one person to have more than the next, this is inherently unfair and rigging the lottery of life” they declare.

New generations come into this society and upon age are met with daily frontal assaults on the values, edicts, and timeless knowledge of this society. These new generations, aghast at what a deplorable nation they are amidst, search for a better plan , an alternative. The professor and the newsman speak of brilliant Utopias that have never been properly executed, or so they say. The new generations find their answers on the streets, in the ivory halls, in the Smart Ones in Tinsel Town.

And today we see a poll that is a culmination of these efforts.


Resisting the Urge to Throw a Shoe – Barney Vs. Harvard Student

Yesterday a Harvard student at the JFK School of Government had the gall to call out Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee Barney Frank. Frank is frankly (no pun), one of the most obnoxious and arrogant lawmakers in Congress that is directly responsible for the toxic relationship between Congress and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. These two organizations under congressional oversight (and owned by us now), had a large role to play in giving loans to people without the means to ever pay them back. Thus the ‘subprime’ crisis ensued and caused a lot of the pain in the economy today. When pressured by the Bush Administration in 2003 to relinquish much of Fannie and Freddie’s power from Congress to the Treasury Barney wanted nothing to do with it here. Barney also received substantial contributions from the two companies over the years, just a smidgen though compared to the Obamanation, Hillary, Chris Dodd, John Kerry and others. See this here.

Barney deflects the student’s questions (God bless the student for having the guts), and blames everything on a right wing conspiracy. Of course. Watch the video if you can stomach it, this guy needs to be in prison based on the evidence above…..


San Francisco Chronicle – A Personal Example Why Newspapers are Dying

Yesterday I received a call from the Bay Area, turns out it’s a writer from the San Francisco Chronicle wishing to interview me on my views of the economy. He got my name from Parade Magazine, I will be in this weekend’s issue – the “What People Earn” issue. Anyway he asked me some pretty basic question – length of time of business experience, where we operate, and what my views on the economy are. So I basically told him that we are slow at the moment but will be resilent. Today on the SFGate site the story popped up, not knowing what to expect I came across this at the beginning,
The (Parade) list looks at how the economy values jobs, from the celebrity – radio host Rush Limbaugh collected $38 million last year – to the everyday, such as the $100,000 that Tim Daniel earned as a tile and masonry contractor in San Diego County.

“This year, we’re definitely feeling the pinch,” said Daniel, who runs a third-generation family business in Carlsbad

Ok, so I should know better. This guy thinks that of anyone in America, I should be compared to Rush Limbaugh and his ‘obscene’ income. There are dozens of celebrities, that make us much as he does or more (who cares?), why not list Oprah? George Clooney? Preposterous, the media cannot do anything without injecting liberal bias, a simple story on the economy automatically has to be ‘normal people’ vs Rush Limbaugh. No wonder the papers are whithering on the vine….

Obama to Business – ‘Come Here Goatboy’

Reuters today with a story showing US CEO’s negative outlook hitting record lows. This reading came about despite the market’s rally off the lows, (bear market rally in my opinion). Apparently businesses see tougher times ahead. The mainstream media of course see no connection between this continual malaise and the Obamanation. It is simple cause and effect that our new leader and team have in just a few months beaten down the already low business spirit with aggrandising, posturing, promise of punitive tax increases and a general ‘fat white men in board rooms smoking cigars caused our problems’ mentality. At the worst possible time in recent history they have come out guns ‘ablazing with the most insane approach possible. Scapegoat, and I’ll be damned, business is ever more disheartened! These guys simply see the people that make America work,(businesspeople), through a prism of prejudiced distrust as if we are all disfigured goatboys to be penned up and beat into submission……


Obamanation to Europe – “End to Nukes”, to North Korea, “We Will Nuke you Unless…”?

So the Obamanation is pow-wowing over in Europe over the last few days for the G20 Summit among others things. His main theme has been to sing the praises of a ‘nuclear-free world’. Sounds great, no nuclear missiles pointed at anyone, we could have all nations just simply bury their caches of arms, I am sure this is feasible. Yet lo and behold yesterday every one’s favorite dictatorial regime North Korea lobbed off a long range missile here possibly capable of carrying a nuclear device. The Defense Department was adamant that the missile did not hit the atmosphere and was not ‘nuke-capable’. Regardless, the Obamanation hears this news and scrambles with his ‘team’ including Hillary Clinton (this is more absurd than Team America)to push for new sanctions. I’m sure that will work. Later yesterday the Obamanation then proclaimed that ”As long as the threat from North Korea persists, we intend to go forward with a missile defense system”. So basically our leader goes to Europe, initially promises to use his Messianicness to rid the world of all nukes, then turns tail and promises to retaliate against North Korea if necessary….am I missing something here?


Quote of the Day April 4 2009

Ayn Rand –

”Every government interference in the economy consists of giving an unearned benefit, extorted by force, to some men at the expense of others.”

Obama – ‘Comrade’

Am I the only one that is extremely uneasy with this story? Since when is a US president a ‘comrade’ of a Russian leader? Did we see a classic slip of the tongue here, kind of like the Obamanation’s ‘spread the wealth’ slip?

GOP RIP? Not According to Ryan

The essence of what the Republican party needs to stand for is simple – individual liberty as an absolute – a clear, polar opposite to that which the Establishment controlling both parties advocate. Freedom from subjective, ambiguous, open-ended government largess that stamps out the principles that our Founders founded our Republic on. The concept of the individual following his aspirations – pursuing one’s happiness. One simply cannot have the ability to chase freedom and happiness when one’s government controls too much in a society. Today is a crystal-clear example, the Obamanation does not believe in empowering citizens, his is a credo of more centralized control. I believe that the Republican party lost it’s way years ago when party leaders thought that they could ‘me too’ the Democrats at their own game. Co-opt and ‘improve’ liberal Democrat ideas, move past the stale, old ideas of Reagan. The RINO’s, George W Bush, the party leaders – they all jumped on this bandwagon. Because of this obsession to be watered-down leftists they lost mightily -and lost as they should. America needs clear delineation in the politica parties – the Republican party should stand for the dignity of the individual, the Democrat party for the State. On this note, congressman Ryan recently said that the Republican party should promote, not compromise conservative principles.
Ryan – “If you believe in freedom, liberty, self-determination, free enterprise, I don’t care if you’re a Muslim, Jewish, Agnostic, Christian, gay, straight, Latino, black, white, Irish, whatever. Join us.”
Exactly, this is true Republicanism – the ideology of Goldwater and Reagan. A party that stands for classic American ideals outlined in our Constitution.

On to another jewel from Ryan –

“When my kids are my age, the federal government will have to tax 40 cents out of every dollar just to pay for the federal government we have today at that time,” he said. “You add the Obama budget ambitions on top of it, it gets even worse. You will destroy this country’s prosperity.”

Could Ryan be the fresh new face that lifts the party back to it’s roots?


Socialism – A Parable

Socialism, Exploitation of the Worker?

Thanks to the Griper for permission to post his work……

“You Never Want a Serious Crisis to go to Waste” update -Counting on Death for More

So what do you get after living the American dream and building a business all of your life and paying state,local and fed taxes @ over 50% of your income? Double dipping taxation when you die of course……thanks Obamanation, I’m glad you are brilliant enough to stand by this credo, it’s great to see a new leader that clearly has his priorities straight. All in the name of sticking it to the ‘rich’. They must pay their fair share after having it so good for so long! Wait, what’s that? I’m rich? How can this be I’m considered rich ? How can it possibly be? You mean all I have to do to qualify as being ‘rich’ now is to wake up early every morning, apply myself every day, follow the rules and be fair and honest? All I have to do is put in more effort than the next guy, work myself silly, and wait for the benevolent almighty Fed to take their cut? Wait, I see how it works – dumb down everyone from media to academia, year after year, decade after decade, and slowly bring in a creeping mediocrity of class envy and when people don’t even see it coming – Bam! Confiscation and theft of productive citizens’ income does nothing more than feed the Leviathan Federal government’s insatiable appetite and equalize misery. The new code word for socialism from the Obamanation is ‘fairness’. All in the name of ‘fairness’. Haven’t I heard leaders over the course of human history justify myriad injustices under such ambiguous bromides as ‘fairness’?

Thanks to Hunter Lewis for the link


Bill O’Reilly on Letterman

Has anyone seen this? If so, what do you think of Letterman’s angling on whether or not conservative talk-show hosts really believe what they talk about? I’ve always known Letterman to be a dyed-in-the-wool liberal (I saw his show in NYC during the Enron debacle and it was patently obvious that he panders to liberals), but this strikes a new low in my opinion.

Paul Ryan – The Man?

I know a little about Paul Ryan having seen him on C-span and other conservative media outlets.For those who don’t know he’s a 39 year old Republican congressman from Wisconsin and has been in the House for 10 year or so. He’s a ranking member of the budget committee as well. The more that I hear about him and from him, the more that I like him. This is one of the faces of the GOP that could take the country away from the socialist tailspin that we are in. He seems to have a clean and youthful disposition – just what we need. Could he be a candidate in 2012, at least a VIP? Mr. Ryan unveiled the GOP budget to contrast the Obamanation’s, the best detail here in my opinion being a plan for a 10 percent rate on the first $100,000 of a couple’s income, with a 25 percent rate thereafter, here are some other details of the Repub budget –

  • Rescinds the newly passed economic stimulus package in 2010, except for unemployment insurance for those who have already lost their job.

  • Repeals the latest budget and continues a freeze in non-defense, non-veteran spending.
    Converts Medicaid into an allotment to states. Reforms Social Security and Medicare, including “means testing” for drug prescription benefits.

  • Simplifies the tax code. Taxpayers would have a choice of keeping the current system (details on what I outlined above), or choosing one that would tax couples making $100,000 (or individuals making $50,000) at a10 percent rate and taxing those above at 25 percent. The plan would include what Ryan called “generous” personal and standard deductions.

  • Cuts the corporate tax rate to 25 percent as a job-creating measure.
  • Increases offshore oil drilling.

  • Places a moratorium on all earmarks.

Paul Ryan, can you lead the GOP and keep the Obamanation and the Democrat Party from bankrupting this great nation?
