Blame Where It should Be

Charley Reese has been a journalist for 49 years.
545 PEOPLE
By Charlie Reese
Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don't propose a federal budget.. The president does.
You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.
You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.
You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason.. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.
Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party. What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it. The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can not replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair. If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red . If the Army & Marines are in IRAQ , it's because they want them in IRAQ. If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.
There are no insoluble government problems. Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like "the economy," "inflation," or "politics" that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do. Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible. They, and they alone, have the power. They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses. Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees. We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

But wait, there's more: At last count we have 29 Czars to add... Comrades,,,Just what in Hell is happening to this great country of ours???

And Still More Obamacare

Weight Of Reality Sinks Health Reform
By CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER Posted Friday, July 24, 2009 4:20 PM PTWhat happened to ObamaCare? Rhetoric met reality. As both candidate and president, the master rhetorician could conjure a world in which he bestows upon you health care nirvana: more coverage, less cost.But you can't fake it in legislation. Once you commit your fantasies to words and numbers, the Congressional Budget Office comes along and declares that the emperor has no clothes.President Obama premised the need for reform on the claim that medical costs are destroying the economy. True. But now we learn — surprise! — that universal coverage increases costs. The congressional Democrats' health care plans, says the CBO, increase costs in the range of $1 trillion plus.In response, the president retreated to a demand that any bill he signs be revenue neutral.But that's classic misdirection: If the fierce urgency of health care reform is to radically reduce costs that are producing budget-destroying deficits, revenue neutrality (by definition) leaves us on precisely the same path to insolvency that Obama himself declares unsustainable.The Democratic proposals are worse still. Because they do increase costs, revenue neutrality means countervailing tax increases.It's not just that it is crazily anti-stimulatory to saddle a deeply depressed economy with an income tax surcharge that falls squarely on small business and the investor class.It's that health care reform ends up diverting for its own purposes a source of revenue that might otherwise be used to close the yawning structural budget deficit that is such a threat to the economy and to the dollar.These blindingly obvious contradictions are why the Democratic health plans are collapsing under their own weight — at the hands of Democrats.It's Max Baucus, Democratic chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, who called Obama unhelpful for ruling out taxing employer-provided health insurance as a way to pay for expanded coverage.It's the Blue Dog Democrats in the House who wince at skyrocketing health-reform costs just weeks after having swallowed hemlock for Obama on a ruinous cap-and-trade carbon tax.The president is therefore understandably eager to make this a contest between progressive Democrats and reactionary Republicans.He seized on Republican Sen. Jim De-Mint's comment that stopping Obama on health care would break his presidency to protest, with perfect disingenuousness, that "this isn't about me. This isn't about politics."It's all about him. Health care is his signature reform. And he knows that if he produces nothing, he forfeits the mystique that both propelled him to the presidency and has sustained him through a difficult first six months.Which is why Obama's red lines are constantly shifting. Universal coverage? Maybe not.No middle-class tax hit? Well, perhaps, but only if they don't "primarily" bear the burden. Because it's about him, Obama is quite prepared to sign anything as long as it is titled "health care reform."This is not about politics?Then why is it, to take but the most egregious example, that in this grand health care debate we hear not a word about one of the worst sources of waste in American medicine: the insane cost and arbitrary rewards of our malpractice system?When a neurosurgeon pays $200,000 a year for malpractice insurance before he even turns on the light in his office or hires his first nurse, who do you think pays?Patients, in higher doctor fees to cover the insurance.And with jackpot justice that awards one claimant zillions while others get nothing—and one-third of everything goes to the lawyers — where do you think that money comes from?The insurance companies, who then pass it on to you in higher premiums.But the greatest waste is the hidden cost of defensive medicine: tests and procedures that doctors order for no good reason other than to protect themselves from lawsuit.Every doctor knows, as I did when I practiced years ago, how much unnecessary medical cost is incurred with an eye not on medicine but on the law.Tort reform would yield tens of billions in savings. Yet you cannot find it in the Democratic bills. And Obama breathed not a word about it in the full hour of his health care news conference.Why? No mystery. The Democrats are parasitically dependent on huge donations from trial lawyers.Didn't Obama promise a new politics that puts people over special interests? Sure.And now he promises expanded, portable, secure, higher-quality medical care — at lower cost! The only thing he hasn't promised is to extirpate evil from the human heart. That legislation will be introduced this week.

More On Obabacare

For those who wanted change, you are about to get it in spades!

If you are not a member of Congress, the President or a Federal employee, who, BTW, are exempt from the Universal Healthcare Plan, your healthcare is about to be screwed up beyond belief!


A Peek Inside the ObamaCare Bill

Chairman Obama wants to ram his gargantuan healthcare bill down our throats before anyone realizes what's in it. What doesn't he want us to see? Some examples, from a quick inventory by Family Security Matters:

Pg 22 of the HC Bill mandates the Government will audit books of all employers that self insure.

Pg 30 Sec 123 of HC bill — a Government committee (good luck with that!) will decide what treatments/benefits a person may receive.

Pg 29 lines 4-16 in the HC bill — YOUR HEALTHCARE WILL BE RATIONED!

Pg 42 of HC Bill — The Health Choices Commissioner will choose your HC Benefits for you.

PG 50 Section 152 in HC bill — HC will be provided to ALL non US citizens, illegal or otherwise.

Pg 58 HC Bill — Government will have real-time access to individual's finances and a National ID Healthcard will be issued!

Pg 59 HC Bill lines 21-24 Government will have direct access to your bank accts for election funds transfer.

PG 65 Sec 164 is a payoff subsidized plan for retirees and their families in Unions & community organizations (read: ACORN).

Pg 72 Lines 8-14 Government will create an HC Exchange to bring private HC plans under Government control.

PG 91 Lines 4-7 HC Bill — Government mandates linguistic appropriate services. Example — Translation for illegal aliens.

Pg 95 HC Bill Lines 8-18 The Government will use groups, i.e. ACORN & Americorps, to sign up individuals for Government HC plan.

PG 85 Line 7 HC Bill — Specifics of Benefit Levels for Plans. AARP members — your Health care WILL be rationed.

PG 102 Lines 12-18 HC Bill — Medicaid Eligible Individuals will be automatically enrolled in Medicaid. No choice.

pg 124 lines 24-25 HC No company can sue Government on price fixing. No "judicial review" against Government Monopoly.

pg 127 Lines 1-16 HC Bill — Doctors/ AMA — The Government will tell YOU what you can earn.

Pg 145 Line 15-17 An Employer MUST auto enroll employees into public option plan. NO CHOICE.

Pg 126 Lines 22-25 Employers MUST pay for HC for part time employees AND their families.

Pg 170 Lines 1-3 HC Bill Any NONRESIDENT Alien is exempt from individual taxes. (Americans will pay.)

Pg 195 HC Bill -officers & employees of HC Admin (the GOVERNMENT) will have access to ALL Americans' finances and personal records.

PG 203 Line 14-15 HC — "The tax imposed under this section shall not be treated as tax" Yes, it says that.

Pg 239 Line 14-24 HC Bill Government will reduce physician services for Medicaid. Seniors, low income, poor affected.

Pg 241 Line 6-8 HC Bill — Doctors — doesn't matter what specialty — will all be paid the same.

PG 253 Line 10-18 Government sets value of Doctor's time, professional judgment, etc. Literally, value of humans.

PG 265 Sec 1131 Government mandates & controls productivity for private HC industries.

Pg 317 L 13-20 OMG!! PROHIBITION on ownership/investment. Government tells Doctors what/how much they can own.

Pg 317-318 lines 21-25,1-3 PROHIBITION on expansion — Government will mandate hospitals cannot expand.

Pg 354 Sec 1177 — Government will RESTRICT enrollment of Special needs people!

PG 425 Lines 4-12 Government mandates Advance Care Planning Consultations. Think Senior Citizens end of life prodding.

PG 425 Lines 22-25, 426 Lines 1-3 Government provides approved list of end of life resources, guiding you in how to die.

PG 427 Lines 15-24 Government mandates program for orders for end of life. The Government has a say in how your life ends.

PG 429 Lines 10-12 "advanced care consultation" may include an ORDER for end of life plans. AN ORDER from the Government to end a life!

Page 472 Lines 14-17 PAYMENT TO COMMUNITY-BASED ORGANIZATION. 1 monthly payment to a community-based organization. (Like ACORN?)

There's plenty more. See for yourself: http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/getdoc.cgi?dbname=111_cong_bills&docid=f:h3200ih.pdf
This bill would drive unemployment, taxes, and the deficit through the stratosphere. It would turn hospitals into the DMV, dramatically reduce our access to healthcare, let bureaucratic slime decide when it's time for us to die, and guarantee that no one in his right mind goes to medical school. As for the damage this would do to individual liberty — let's just say that any doubts about the Moonbat Messiah being a socialist have been put to rest. If this nightmare bill isn't Obama's Waterloo , then it's America 's.

Medical Reform???

(If this doesn't make your blood boil.......... nothing will!!)
Page 425 of Health Care Bill - Listen to this interview Fred Thompson's Radio Show interviewing Betsy McCaughey (pronounced Mc Coy). Or look it up on www.fredthompsonshow.com, under interviews.

On page 425 it says in black and white that EVERYONE on Social Security, (will include all Senior Citizens and SSI people) will go to MANDATORY counseling every 5 years to learn and to choose from ways to end your suffering (and your life). Health care will be denied based on age. 500 Billion will be cut from Seniors healthcare.&nb sp; The only way for that to happen is to drastically cut health care, the oldest and the sickest will be cut first. Paying for your own care will not be an option.

Now, CALL YOUR PEOPLE IN WASHINGTON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tell them to read page 425 if they don't read anything else. Surely some of them have parents.

"ON PAGE 425 OF OBAMA’S HEALTH CARE BILL, the Federal Government will require EVERYONE who is on Social Security to undergo a counseling session every 5 years with the objective being that they will explain to them just how to end their own life earlier. Yes...They are going to push SUICIDE to cut medicare spending!"

I have noted that many elected officials, both Democrats and Republicans, called upon America to unite behind Obama. Well, I want to make it clear to all who will listen that I AM NOT uniting behind Obama! I will respect the Office which he holds, and I will acknowledge his abilities as an orator and wordsmith and pray for him, BUT that is it. I have begun today to see what I can do to make sure that He is a one-term President! Why am I doing this?
It is because I do not share Obama's vision or Value system for America;
I do not share his Abortion beliefs;
I do not share his radical Marxist's concept of re-distributing wealth;
I do not share his stated views on raising taxes on those who make $150,000+ (the ceiling has been changed three times since August);
I do not share his view that America is Arrogant;
I do not share his view that America is not a Christian Nation; (THIS JUST SHOWS HE CERTAINLY ISN'T UP ON HIS AMERICAN HISTORY!)
I do not share his view that the military should be reduced by 25%;
I do not share his view of amnesty and giving more to illegals than American Citizens who need help; (NO WAY, HOSEA!)
I do not share his views on homosexuality and his definition of marriage;
I do not share his views that Radical Islam is our friend and Israel is our enemy who should give up any land; (GIMME A BREAK!)
I do not share his spiritual beliefs (at least what I think his beliefs are);
I do not share his beliefs on how to re-work the healthcare system in America ;
I do not share his Strategic views of the Middle East, and certainly do not share his plan to sit down with terrorist regimes such as Iran.
Bottom line, my America is vastly different from Obama's, and I have a higher obligation to my Country and my God to do what is Right! For eight (8) years, the Liberals in our Society, led by numerous entertainers who would have no platform and no real credibility but for their celebrity status, have attacked President Bush, his family, and his spiritual beliefs! They have not moved toward the center in their beliefs and their philosophies, and they never came together nor compromised their personal beliefs for the betterment of our Country! They have portrayed my America as a land where everything is tolerated except being intolerant! They have been a vocal and irreverent minority for years; they have mocked and attacked the very core values so important to the founding and growth of our Country! They have made every effort to remove the name of God or Jesus Christ from our Society! They have challenged capital punishment, the right to bear firearms, and the most basic principles of our criminal code; they have attacked one of the most fundamental of all Freedoms, the right of free speech! Unite behind Obama? Never!I refuse to retreat one more inch in favor of those whom I believe are the embodiment of Evil!PRESIDENT BUSH made mistakes during his Presidency, (EVERY PRESIDENT DOES) however; I believe that he weighed his decisions in light of the long established Judeo-Christian principles of our Founding Fathers!!! Majority rules in America , and I will honor the concept; however, I will fight with all of my power to be a voice in opposition to Obama and "his goals for America ."I am going to be a thorn in the side of those who, if left unchecked, will destroy our Country!! Any more compromise is more defeat! I pray that the results of his election will wake up many who have sat on the sidelines and allowed the Socialist-Marxist anti-God crowd to slowly change so much of what has been good in America !

The Sarge On 'Stupid Police'

Bottom Line is I agree with your post about the bho comments about the " stupid police department". Now having said that lets not let anyone think that this was some kind of off hand shoot from the hip comment. This was orcheststrated from the very start, probably from the telephone call from the neighbor through the news conference. My suspicious mind is just going crazy. Let me make some observations here and remember I wasn't there so I can only say what I think. The suspect has a doctorate right? He has a chauffer, right? Don't you think that he would have access to a spare key? Access to a cell phone to call a Lock Smith which would have only taken a hour at max instead of standing on the front steps trying to "jigger" (the word is jimmy) the damn door. The act itself was orchestrated along with the question and the answer given by bho. This man (bho) is so narcissistic and so far out there we don't even know some of the shit he's capable of. He is a socialist and wants this great nation to become socialist. We need to look into these Czars he's appointing. This Jones, the green czar, is a self claimed communist and he's one of bho's friends. He has appointed at last count thirty Czars. This is the same kind of Shadow Government that Hitler setup. These people are absolutely capable of totally destroying the world as we know it. Are you and I and the DO the only ones who are seeing this? Surely Fox News sees it and is trying to get the word out. But we got so much complacency in the US that bho's administration is getting by with it. We simply cannot set idly by and let this happen. Let me know if you think I'm nuts and I'll set down and shut up. Nah I won't but I can't believe we and Fox News are the only ones seeing it.

Excuse Me While I Go Off

The Chicago Sun-Times reporter Lynn Sweet asked the president what the recent arrest of Henry Louis Gates said about the state of race relations in the country.

Here is the president's full answer from the transcript:

"Well, I should say at the outset that "Skip" Gates is a friend, so I may be a little biased here. I don't know all the facts. What's been reported, though, is that the guy forgot his keys, jimmied his way to get into the house, there was a report called into the police station that there might be a burglary taking place - so far, so good, right? I mean, if I was trying to jigger into - well, I guess this is my house now so - (laughter) - it probably wouldn't happen. But let's say my old house in Chicago - (laughter) - here I'd get shot. (Laughter.)"But so far, so good. They're reporting - the police are doing what they should. There's a call, they go investigate what happens. My understanding is at that point Professor Gates is already in his house. The police officer comes in, I'm sure there's some exchange of words, but my understanding is, is that Professor Gates then shows his ID to show that this is his house. And at that point, he gets arrested for disorderly conduct - charges which are later dropped."Now, I don't know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that, but I think it's fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two, that the Cambridge Police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and number three, what I think we know separate and apart from this incident is that there is a long history in this country of African Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately. That's just a fact."As you know, Lynn, when I was in the state legislature in Illinois, we worked on a racial profiling bill because there was indisputable evidence that blacks and Hispanics were being stopped disproportionately. And that is a sign, an example of how, you know, race remains a factor in this society. That doesn't lessen the incredible progress that has been made. I am standing here as testimony to the progress that's been made."And yet the fact of the matter is, is that this still haunts us. And even when there are honest misunderstandings, the fact that blacks and Hispanics are picked up more frequently and often time for no cause casts suspicion even when there is good cause. And that's why I think the more that we're working with local law enforcement to improve policing techniques so that we're eliminating potential bias, the safer everybody is going to be."

The Officer's response:
NATICK, Mass. (July 23) -- A white police sergeant who arrested renowned black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. at his home says he followed procedure and is disappointed President Barack Obama said officers acted "stupidly," despite acknowledging he didn't know all the facts.
Gates has demanded an apology from Sgt. James Crowley, who had responded to the home near Harvard University last week to investigate a report of a burglary and demanded the scholar show him identification. Police say Gates at first refused and then accused the officer of racism.

Gates said Crowley walked into his home without his permission and only arrested him as the professor followed him to the porch, repeatedly demanding the sergeant's name and badge number because he was unhappy over his treatment.
Crowley said Wednesday that he won't apologize. The charge of disorderly conduct against Gates was dropped Tuesday.


In radio interviews Thursday morning, Crowley maintained he had done nothing wrong in arresting Gates.
Skip over this content
"I support the president of the United States 110 percent. I think he was way off base wading into a local issue without knowing all the facts as he himself stated before he made that comment," Crowley told WBZ-AM. "I guess a friend of mine would support my position, too."

Obama said federal officials need to continue working with local law enforcement "to improve policing techniques so that we're eliminating potential bias."

Crowley said he's grateful he has the support of his police force. He said he's not worried about any possible disciplinary action.
"There will be no apology," he said outside his home Wednesday.
Crowley was a campus police officer at Brandeis University in July 1993 when he administered CPR trying to save the life of former Boston Celtics player Reggie Lewis. Lewis, who was black, collapsed and died during an off-season workout.
Cambridge police and the police officers' union have declined to comment.
But there was plenty of blame being spread around by the public, through talk shows, blogs, newspaper online forums and watercooler chats. Even the hosts of a sports radio show in Boston spent much of Wednesday morning faulting Gates.


Gov. Deval Patrick, who is black, said he was troubled and upset over the incident. Cambridge Mayor Denise Simmons, who also is black, has said she spoke with Gates and apologized on behalf of the city, and a statement from the city called the July 16 incident "regrettable and unfortunate."

Gates said he was "outraged" by the arrest.
"This isn't about me; this is about the vulnerability of black men in America," Gates said.
He said the incident made him realize how vulnerable poor people and minorities are "to capricious forces like a rogue policeman, and this man clearly was a rogue policeman."
Police supporters charge that Gates, director of Harvard's W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research, was responsible for his own arrest by overreacting.
Gates' supporters cite Boston's history as a city plagued by racism as an underlying reason why this could still happen to an esteemed scholar, at midday, in his own home.
"That stain on this city — as far as persons of color are concerned — is a real one," television and radio commentator Callie Crossley said.


Black students and professors at Harvard have complained for years about racial profiling by Cambridge and campus police. Harvard commissioned an independent committee last year to examine the university's race relations after campus police confronted a young black man who was using tools to remove a bike lock. The man worked at Harvard and owned the bike.

Richard Weinblatt, director of the Institute for Public Safety at Central Ohio Technical College, said the police sergeant was responsible for defusing the situation once he realized Gates was the lawful occupant. It is not against the law to yell at police, especially in a home, as long as that behavior does not affect an investigation, he said."That is part of being a police officer in a democratic society," Weinblatt said. "The point is that the police sergeant needs to be the bigger person, take the higher road, be more professional."

Let us set the stage, shall we?
Officer gets detailed to a burglary in progress call.
Officer arrives to find a black man breaking into a home.
Officer confronts him and instead of immediately arresting him and sorting it out later, takes the time to ask for proof the man lives there.
Man initially refuses and accuses the officer of racism. I must assume the man, at some point, does in fact show identification.
Can you see the scene? Can you put yourself there? Was there yelling, anger, accusations of racism by a man who automatically assumes the mantle of 'victim' upon being confronted by a white officer trying to do his job?
Now let us add in the president. A self professed 'friend' of Mr. Gates. Think old 'Skip' may be cut from the same cloth as BHO maybe? Remember BHO is a child of the reverend Wright and his odious brand of racial identity. Think Mr. Gates might just be of the same stripe? Now BHO is sounding off and talking about 'stupidity' and says this "And even when there are honest misunderstandings, the fact that blacks and Hispanics are picked up more frequently and often time for no cause casts suspicion even when there is good cause."

That's called race baiting folks and it's being done by the president of the United States of America. It is beneath contempt. When the president sounds off like this the officer is damned no matter what actually happened and the only 2 people who know for sure are the officer and Mr. Gates. I don't know, you don't know and damn sure BHO doesn't know. To publicly castigate this officer shows exactly who BHO is and what he wants to do. He is creating a condition where no white police officer will ever arrest a minority where there is even the remotest possibility that he will complain. Not a possibility that he is innocent, because in this case no one can say for a certainty that he did or didn't deserve to be arrested, but simply a complaint of a racially motivated arrest. In one fell swoop BHO has managed to handcuff law enforcement across this country. He has said to every punk, thief, robber, murder and rapist that if you're black or latino just make a race complaint and you'll get off scott free with an apology and probably taxpayer money in your pocket.
This president has set back race relations in this country by 50 years. At a time when most white Americans are pretty damn good at being color blind BHO has said 'Forget that, race is the only thing that matters.' It is absolutely chilling to law enforcement and if you think we didn't get the message you're wrong. Take a look at LA after the King verdict riots. Officers were afraid to arrest an african american. Afraid. Wrong? You bet but very, very human.
It is maddening to hear this man speak and read what he writes. He took a case that might have generated some questions and concerns from white America and turned it on it's ear. White America is much more likely to turn a deaf ear to legitimate complaints of racism. This is akin to the claim of 'verbal rape'. It so dilutes the word rape that genuine victims are forgotten. We're going back to the days of ignoring those legitimate complaints because of the overreaction to things like this. BHO weighed in because this is a friend of his and he saw a chance to further the victimhood status of minorities. BHO is no friend of the African American or Latino peoples.
He is trying to use incidents like this to woo the conservative and libertarian sectors of the minority communities to his camp and co-opt them.

Whatever actually happened one thing is certain. True racial harmony and fair and color blind law enforcement in this country has been dealt a hammer blow. How, when and if they recover remains to be seen.

This entire incident could have been handled so simply and easily. A citizens complaint against the officer, investigated by his department, a review board or a state agency. You know, the way it's supposed to be done. The way it would have been done if Mr. Gates were white. I know that sounds harsh but tell me I'm wrong. The president should have kept his damn mouth shut until all the facts were out and an internal investigation was done. Now, we find ourselves in conversations like this and arguing over race relations in the U.S. I find myself hoping Sgt. Crowley sticks to his guns and refuses to apoligize, even at the cost of his job. Even though he might in fact be wrong. And that, folks, is enough to make even The Six cry.

God, I thought we were past all this crap!

And here it is!!!


While discussing the upcoming Universal Health Care Program with my sister-in-law the other day, I think we have found the solution. I am sure you have heard the ideas that if you ’re a senior you need to suck it up and give up the idea that you need any health care. A new hip? Unheard of. We simply can't afford to take care of you anymore. You don't need any medications for your high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems, etc. Let’s take care of the young people. After all, they will be ruling the world very soon.

So here is the solution. When you turn 70, you get a gun and 4 bullets. You are allowed to shoot 2 senators and 2 representatives. Of course, you will be sent to prison where you will get 3 meals a day, a roof over your head and all the health care you need! New teeth, great! Need glasses, no problem. New hip, knee, kidney, lung, heart? Well bring it on. And who will be paying for all of this. The same government that just told you that you are too old for health care. And, since you are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any income tax.

I really think we have found a Perfect Solution!

Works for me.

Do you think this article from the Canadian Press reads true?

The Canadian Press and Obama
"A shallow, manipulative and egotistical amateur who is in over his head" The Canadian Press.
http://www.thecanadianpress.com/about_cp.aspx?id=104Obama's White House is Falling DownBy Daniel Greenfield Thursday, June 11, 2009In the sixth month of his presidency, Obama has turned an economic downturn into an economic disaster, taking over and trashing entire companies, and driving the nation deep into deficit spending expected to pass 10 trillion dollars.Abroad, Obama seems to have no other mode except to continue on with his endless campaign, confusing speechmaking with diplomacy. It is natural enough that Obama, who built his entire campaign on high profile public speeches reported on by an adoring press, understands how to do nothing else but that.Ego driven photo op appearances and clueless treatment of foreign dignitariesWhile the press is still chewing over Obama's Cairo speech, this celebrity style coverage ignores the fact that Obama's endless world tour is not actually accomplishing anything. Instead his combination of ego driven photo op appearances and clueless treatment of foreign dignitaries have alienated many of America 's traditional allies. Those who aren't being quietly angry at Obama, like Brown, Merkel or Netanyahu, instead think of him as as absurdly lightweight, as Sarkozy, King Abdullah or Putin do.While his officials carry out their dirty economic deeds, Obama responds to any and every crisis as if it were a Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland musical, with a cry of, "Let's put on a show." Thus far Obama has put on "shows" across America , Europe and the Middle East . And what the adoring media coverage neglects to cover, is that Obama's shows have solved absolutely nothing. They have served only as high profile entertainment.Neither alienating America 's traditional allies, through a combination of arrogant bullying and ignorance, nor appeasing America 's enemies, has yielded any actual results. Nor does it seem likely to. Islamic terrorism is not going anywhere, neither are the nuclear threats from North Korea and Iran . While Obama keeps smiling, the global situation keeps growing more grim.At home, if Obama was elected as depression era entertainment, the charm of his smiles and his constant appearances on magazine covers appear to be wearing thin on the American public. Despite the shrill attacks on Rush Limbaugh or the Republican Enemy of the Weak-- the Democratic party of 2009, is polling a lot like the Republican party of 2008. The Democrats have suddenly become the incumbents, and the only accomplishment they can point to is lavish deficit spending, often on behalf of the very same corporations and causes they once postured against.The European Union Parliament's swing to the right cannot be credited to Obama, though doubtlessly some European voters seeing socialist economic crisis management on display in the world's richest country decided they wanted none of it, but it is part of a general turning against federalism. And Obama's entire program is dependent on heavily entrenching federalism at the expense of individual and state's rights. Yet that is precisely his achilles heel with independent voters who are polling against more taxes and expanded government. And no amount of speeches by Obama can wish away his 18 czars or the national debt he has foisted on generation after generation of the American people.That leaves Obama with a choice between socialism and the independent voter. And thus far he has chosen socialism.Obama's tactic of hijacking Bush Administration era policies on the economy and the War on Terror, and exploiting them as trojan horses to promote his own agenda, have left him coping with a backlash from his own party, as well as general Republican opposition.His Czars are meant to function as the bones in an executive infrastructure accountable to no one, but a lack of accountability isn't just another word for tyranny, but for incompetence. A functional chain of command is accountable at multiple levels if it is to function effectively. Obama's White House by contrast is in a state of over-organized chaos, the sort of organized disorganization that undisciplined egotistical leftists naturally create for themselves, complete with multiple overlapping levels of authority and no one in charge but the man at the top, who's too busy doing other things to actually be in charge.Dennis Blair as National Intelligence, who collaborated with the Muslim genocide of Christians in East Timor , trying to muscle out the CIA to create his own intelligence network, is typical of the kind of chaos being spawned by every chief in an expanding government bureaucracy working to make sure that all the Indians answer to him. Similarly the National Security Council wrestling with the State Department, highlighted by Samantha Power getting her own specially created NSC position to butt heads with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, illustrates the state of conflict and chaos in American foreign affairs. A state of chaos so pervasive that incompetence has now become commonplace, and no one can even be found to double check the spelling of a Russian word that is meant to be the theme of American's diplomatic reconstruction with Russia , or to pick out a gift for the visiting British Prime Minister.The death of Chrysler at the hands of Fiat and the UAW Meanwhile on the economy, Obama exploited the ongoing bailouts, transforming them from bailouts into takeovers meant to shift the balance of power in what had been a democracy and socially engineer not only corporations, but the lives of ordinary Americans. But the public's patience with corporate bailouts is at an end, most Americans were never happy with them to begin with, and want them to end. The death of Chrysler at the hands of Fiat and the UAW might look like a victory in the union ranks, but it doesn't play too well outside Detroit . And tacking on CAFE standards that will kill the pickup truck and the SUV will badly erode Obama in the swing states, if exploited properly in 2010 and 2012. Despite the constant media barrage, orchestrated out of the White House, the public is growing disenchanted with the performance of Obama and the Democrats. With unemployment booming and the economy dropping, the jobs aren't there and the spending is out of control. Republicans today are polling better on ethics and the economy, than the Democrats are. That shows a trend which is likely to register in the mid-term elections in 2010, in the same way that the EU parliamentary elections served as a shock to the system.In the opposition, Republicans are free to embrace the rhetoric of change, to champion reform and push libertarian ideas about the size and scope of government. In turn all Obama has is his celebrity fueled media spectacle world tour. A charade now serving as a parallel to the depression era entertainment that functioned as escapism in a dour time. But before long, it may be Obama that the American public will want to escape from.A shallow, manipulative and egotistical amateur who is in over his headObama has tried to play Lincoln, Reagan, JFK and FDR-- but in the end he can only play himself, a shallow, manipulative and egotistical amateur who is in over his head, and trying to drag the country down with him. Obama's White House is falling down and while the flashbulbs are still glittering and the parties are going on in D.C. and around the world, Obama and the Democratic Congress may be headed for a recession of their own.

Cap And Tax

June 26, 2009
The Economic Impact of the Waxman-Markey Cap-and-Trade Bill
Testimony before theSenate Republican ConferenceJune 22, 2009
My name is Ben Lieberman, and I am the Senior Policy Analyst for Energy and Environment in the Thomas A. Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies at The Heritage Foundation. The views I express in this testimony are my own, and should not be construed as representing any official position of The Heritage Foundation.
I would like to thank the Senate Republican Conference for extending me the privilege of participating in today's hearing. I'll be discussing the costs of the cap-and-trade approach to addressing global warming and The Heritage Foundation's economic analysis of H.R. 2454, the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 (Waxman-Markey). As you know, the House is currently considering this bill, which is similar to but has more stringent targets and timetables than the Lieberman-Warner cap-and-trade bill that was rejected by the Senate last June.
It is clear that cap-and-trade is very expensive and amounts to nothing more than an energy tax in disguise. After all, when you sweep aside all the complexities of how cap and trade operates--and make no mistake, this is the most convoluted attempt at economic central planning this nation has ever attempted--the bottom line is that cap and trade works by raising the cost of energy high enough so that individuals and businesses are forced to use less of it. Inflicting economic pain is what this is all about. That is how the ever-tightening emissions targets will be met.
The only entities directly regulated by Waxman-Markey would be the electric utilities, oil refiners, natural gas producers, and some manufacturers that produce energy on site. So, the good news for the rest of us--homeowners, car owners, small-business owners, farmers--is that we won't be directly regulated under this bill. The bad news is that nearly all the costs will get passed on to us anyway.
What are those costs? According to the analysis we conducted at The Heritage Foundation, which is attached to my written statement, the higher energy costs kick in as soon as the bill's provisions take effect in 2012. For a household of four, energy costs go up $436 that year, and they eventually reach $1,241 in 2035 and average $829 annually over that span. Electricity costs go up 90 percent by 2035, gasoline by 58 percent, and natural gas by 55 percent by 2035. The cumulative higher energy costs for a family of four by then will be nearly $20,000.
But direct energy costs are only part of the consumer impact. Nearly everything goes up, since higher energy costs raise production costs. If you look at the total cost of Waxman-Markey, it works out to an average of $2,979 annually from 2012-2035 for a household of four. By 2035 alone, the total cost is over $4,600.
Beyond the cost impact on individuals and households, Waxman-Markey also affects employment, and especially employment in the manufacturing sector. We estimate job losses averaging 1,145,000 at any given time from 2012-2035. And note that those are net job losses, after the much-hyped green jobs are taken into account. Some of the lost jobs will be destroyed entirely, while others will be outsourced to nations like China and India that have repeatedly stated that they'll never hamper their own economic growth with energy-cost boosting global warming measures like Waxman-Markey.
Since farming is energy intensive, that sector will be particularly hard-hit. Higher gasoline and diesel fuel costs, higher electricity costs, and higher natural gas-derived fertilizer costs all erode farm profits, which are expected to drop by 28 percent in 2012 and average 57 percent lower through 2035. As with American manufacturers, Waxman-Markey also puts American farmers at a global disadvantage, as other food-exporting nations would have no comparable energy-price raising measures in place.
Overall, Waxman-Markey reduces gross domestic product by an average of $393 billion annually between 2012 and 2035, and cumulatively by $9.4 trillion. In other words, the nation will be $9.4 trillion poorer with Waxman-Markey than without it.
It should also be noted that the costs are not distributed evenly. Low-income households spend a disproportionate share of their incomes on energy, and thus would be hit harder than average by Waxman-Markey. Of course, the bill has provisions to give back some revenues to low-income households, but it is likely that these rebates will amount only to some portion of each dollar that was taken away from them in the first place in the form of higher energy costs and higher costs for other goods and services. Waxman-Markey also disproportionately burdens those states, especially in the Midwest and South, that still have a substantial number of manufacturing jobs to lose, as well as those that rely more heavily than others on coal for electric generation. In addition, because the bill raises energy costs, it hurts rural America much more than urban America. Rural Americans, farmers and non-farmers, spend an average of 58 percent more on energy as a percentage of income than their urban counterparts, and those costs would go up.
In conclusion, it's not surprising that support for Waxman-Markey is heaviest in those parts of the country, the urban centers in the West Coast and Northeast, that are least harmed by it. Even there, the economic damage would be bad enough, but the citizens in the rest of the country and their representatives should really be asking many tough questions about the economic impact of cap and trade. Thank you.

Ladies and Gentlemen
I am writing this is hopes that you will take action. With-in the next couple of week our elected officials in Washington will be voting on the National Health Care Program that Obama is pushing through the House. I am totally against this program for the following reasons. Along with the Cap and Trade bill that passed the house; the National Health Care Program will continue us on the road to complete bankruptcy and a depression like we have never seen in this country. I have experienced the Government run health care through the Veterans Administration, and I guarantee you won't like it. You can wait months for an appointment and they are already setup to deny any kind of coverage you may need.
I am also opposed to the confirmation of Sonya Sotomayor as a Supreme Court Justice, I base this opposition on her historical facts. She is a racist and she is against the 2nd Amendment. Her statements (that she's made several times both verbally and in writing) says that a hispanic female would make better judgments than a white male justice. She also believes that the 2nd Amendment does not apply to the states and therefore the people, Only the Federal Government should keep and bare arms. In the next couple of days I will be calling the politian's and voicing my opposition in these matters. You do not need to agree with me but I would encourage each of you to call and let them know what your position is be it for or against. This is such an important time in our country that we each must take a stand and let those who are trying to change our lives know how we feel. I am sending you the names that need to be contacted if you know of others please let me know.

How Far Will You Be Pushed?

Once upon a time, I was invited to the White House for a private dinner with the President. I am a respected businessman, with a factory that produces memory chips for computers and portable electronics. There was some talk that my industry was being scrutinized by the administration, but I paid it no mind. I live in a free country. There's nothing that the government can do to me if I've broken no laws. My wealth was earned honestly, and an invitation to dinner with an American President is an honor.

I checked my coat, was greeted by the Chief of Staff, and joined the President in a yellow dining room. We sat across from each other at a table draped in white linen. The Great Seal was embossed on the china. Uniformed staff served our dinner. The meal was served, and I was startled when my waiter suddenly reached out, plucked a dinner roll off my plate, and began nibbling it as he walked back to the kitchen. "Sorry about that," said the President. "Andrew is very hungry." "I don't appreciate..." I began, but as I looked into the calm brown eyes across from me, I felt immediately guilty and petty. It was just a dinner roll. "Of course,"I concluded, and reached for my glass. Before I could, however, another waiter reached forward, took the glass away and swallowed the wine in a single gulp. "And his brother Eric is very thirsty." said the President. I didn't say anything. The President is testing my compassion, I thought. I will play along. I don't want to seem unkind. My plate was whisked away before I had tasted a bite. "Eric's children are also quite hungry." With a lurch, I crashed to the floor. My chair had been pulled out from under me. I stood, brushing myself off angrily, and watched as it was carried from the room. "And their grandmother can't stand for long." I excused myself, smiling outwardly, but inside feeling like a fool. Obviously I had been invited to the White House to be sport for some game. I reached for my coat, to find that it had been taken. I turned back to the President. Their grandfather doesn't like the cold." I wanted to shout - that was my coat! But again, I looked at the placid smiling face of my host and decided I was being a poor sport. I spread my hands helplessly and chuckled. Then I felt my hip pocket and realized my wallet was gone. I excused myself and walked to a phone on an elegant side table. I learned shortly that my credit cards had been maxed out, my bank accounts emptied, my retirement and equity portfolios had vanished, and my wife had been thrown out of our home.
Apparently, the waiters and their families were moving in. The President hadn't moved or spoken as I learned all this, but finally I lowered the phone into its cradle and turned to face him. "Andrew's whole family has made bad financial decisions. They haven't planned for retirement, and they need a house. They recently defaulted on a subprime mortgage. I told them they could have your home. They need it more than you do." My hands were shaking. I felt faint. I stumbled back to the table and knelt on the floor. The President cheerfully cut his meat, ate his steak and drank his wine. I lowered my eyes and stared at the small grey circles on the tablecloth that were water drops. "By the way," He added, "I have just signed an Executive Order nationalizing your factories. I'm firing you as head of your business. I'll be operating the firm now for the benefit of all mankind. There's a whole bunch of Eric’sand Andrew’s out there and they can't come to you for jobs groveling like beggars." I looked up. The President dropped his spoon into the empty ramekin which had been his crème Brule. He drained the last drops of his wine. As the table was cleared, he lit a cigarette and leaned back in his chair. He stared at me. I clung to the edge of the table as if were a ledge and I were a man hanging over an abyss. I thought of the years behind me, of the life I had lived. The life I had earned with a lifetime of work, risk and struggle. Why was I punished? How had I allowed it to be taken?
What game had I played and lost? I looked across the table and noticed with some surprise that there was no game board between us. What had I done wrong? As if answering the unspoken thought, the President suddenly cocked his head, locked his empty eyes to mine, and bared a million teeth, chuckling wryly as he folded his hands. "You should have stopped me at the dinner roll," he said.


I afraid the dinner roll is long long past. WE better start to do something or the game will be over.

CONGRESSIONAL GUIDE: Is mass resignation too much to ask?

One of the things I learned a long time ago, is that I am so average that my thinking is very similar to at least 75% of the American people, regardless of political party affiliation. Let's see if that holds true in this case. If so, politicians beware!!!

You know, I am not a Bush fan. However, I am really tired of hearing his name still repeated over and over by the far-left, and always associated with something bad. If President Obama is as astute as the far-left would have us believe, he would never mention the name Bush, or refer to "the mess he inherited" again. George Bush is history. Nothing can be done to change history. Might as well get over it, and let's look to the future, the only thing that can be changed or controlled. In my opinion the damage to this nation by the Obama insanity in his first 130 days is 100-fold worse than everything both Bush Presidents did combined.

We must get a grip on our government. We are beginning to resemble the chaos I observed in the Philippines while attending Snake School enroute to Vietnam in the 1967.
That was an unpleasant memory! Have you ever seen a 12-foot King Cobra---but, that is another story.

The current path chosen for our country is more dangerous that I have observed in my lifetime. That is saying something, as I was trying to command an F-15 Fighter Squadron when Jimmy Carter was President. I thought times were bad then!!!

After observing the most far-reaching far-left changes in our country's history occur in the past 130 days, there are a few things I would like to see changed again, and very soon. How about you Mr. and Mrs. America?

-----I just want Obama's insane spending to stop. We must stop listening to the far-left politicians and staff members who are paid to support this nonsense. Our debt is already beyond ever being repaid, unless the dollar is devalued to the point where it is worthless. Maybe that is the plan. If not, there is no plan.

-----I would like to see our President stop apologizing for America. It makes me believe he does not understand and appreciate the enormously positive role this country has played in maintaining freedom around the world. For example, Europe would be speaking German twice over, if it were not for American blood and treasure. The WWII generation was the last generation to truly understand sacrifice for freedom. We should treasure them, and never apologize for their contribution to saving those to whom our President appears to be constantly apologizing to.

-----I would like to see the majority of both Democrats and Republicans voted out of office, and replaced with young patriots who support term limits. A good place to look for replacements is our returning soldiers who have served in the Middle-East. They understand and appreciate life in this country. They were willing to die to protect that way of life. How may of our present elected officials can make that statement?

-----I would like to see strict term limits set at six two-year terms for the House and two six-year terms for the Senate. And for goodness sake, leave the President's term limit alone at two four-year terms.

-----I would like to see even the mention of ear-marks and pork-spending become a felony!!!

-----I would like to see our military rebuilt so strong that no country on this planet would dare attack us. Deterrence prevents war. And while we are at it, let's insure this nation buys the right stuff. For example, I would like to see the buy on our new F-22 fighter increased to the point of maintaining air-dominance for the next 50 years, as it has been for the past 50 years. I like lots of insurance when it comes to protecting this great nation. Boy, will that one burn Obama and his cronies' whiskers!!! They are destroying our military as we speak, as they are convinced Obama is gifted to the point of talking his way out of anything. North Korea, Iran, China and Russia are all laughing their butts off over that one.

-----I would like to see us completely pull out of Afghanistan. The Soviet Union proved many points there, and none were good. It is a totally different situation than Iraq. To win in Afghanistan, first we must win in Pakistan, and the American people are not willing to pay that price. It will become Obama's Vietnam, and for what reason? Enough of our young have died in the Middle-East. Please see the above concerning building our military strong enough that it will never need to be used.

-----I would like to see our health care system left alone. Let's offer a plan for those not covered, but do it through the private sector. Government should be kept as far away from this program as possible. I lived under a socialized medical program for over 30 years. It was called military health care and it sucked.

-----I would like to see our government severely limited and forced out of the auto and banking business. If a company can't cut it, let them use bankruptcy as our law allows. Who came up with this idea of too big to fail? It had to be someone in government drawing a salary far too large for their level of thinking.

-----I would like to see taxes reduced and in proportion to what is paid. If we want to reduce unemployment and see the economy soar, reduce tax rates on small business and provide assistance at that level, as opposed to General Motors. Where do we get these Harvard lunkheads who can only suggest government intervention and massive spending? This is not Rocket Science. They just want you, the American people, to think it so.

-----Did I say already that even the mention of pork-spending by our Congress should be considered a felony---and retroactive?

-----I would like our guns left alone. There is no controversy here. We have an Amendment to our Constitution clearly giving gun rights to American citizens. By the way, did I already say that to even allude to a "living Constitution", or suggest any deviation to our Constitution should be considered a felony offense?

-----I think we should maintain separation of Church and State. But, we should fully understand what that means. It does not mean that we cannot post the Ten Commandments anywhere we wish, use white crosses to mark the graves of our fallen soldiers, use the word "God" on our coins, and let those among us worship as they please. Does that not ring a bell even for those who skipped high school and went directly to Harvard? One of the factors leading to the founding of this nation was the search for religious freedom. I often wonder what is really being taught in our schools, when basic thought like this is not understood.

Well, there is so much more I would like to add, but I am already worried about the far-left, attack and destroy tactics being planned for me, and Hobbs (my Chinese Pug). However, those guys had best be careful. Those high paying government jobs are probably going to no longer be available when Sara is elected President. They might want to start hiding in the woodwork now.

A Word About Sarah Palin From A Father And Husband

Listen up you liberal children; it’s time and past time for the adults to do a little disciplining. A spanking is due and it’s coming but it does no good for a bratty child to be corrected if they don’t know what they’re being spanked for.

You Liberals are the most self deluding group of squalling children I have ever seen. You seem to believe, I mean REALLY BELIEVE that anyone who does not think like you is in a wrong headed minority. Nothing could be further from the truth. Whether they call themselves Republican, Democrat, Independent or whatever, the majority of Americans are pretty much middle of the road. We are separated primarily by our views on a very few issues but we are united by a great many more. Equality, fairness, respect, family, friends, hard work, you know, the American Way.

The Liberal attack on Sarah Palin pisses us off in a fundamental way. It attacks us at our core values; that every person should be judged by the same template. She’s being attacked for being what so many of us are, every day Americans. It doesn’t matter if you’re a hunter or not. It doesn’t matter if your kids played hockey or any sport for that matter. Ever had a special needs baby? Maybe your teenage daughter got pregnant. No? It’s happened to us and continues to happen every day. No outsiders allowed to play in the big sandbox you say. We say bullshit. Just take a seat and watch.

The argument against Sarah Palin boils down to one basic fact; she’s a conservative. Worse, she’s a Republican! It’s the truth, don’t bother to deny it. The liberal media wouldn’t have dared to attack a liberal woman the way Sarah’s been assailed. Even the idea that a woman couldn’t be a working mother would itself have come under intense media bombardment as just another proof of the Neanderthal nature of conservatives. Dear liberal children, where are the calls for reasonableness? Where are the rallies for a woman’s right to choose? Just because she chose conservatism is no reason to be shy. Come on, speak up now. No? How about a sit in protesting for open mindedness, freedom and love? Not today you say? Typical spoiled rotten childish behavior. No tantrums now. Stamping your little feet and crying about how unfair we parents are being won’t help. A spanking is coming.

I am a father and a husband. My wife got pregnant at 17. Oh the shame. We got married and did our best to muddle by. It’s been 30 years last August. My wife bore a girl child and we raised her as best we could. Were we always perfect parents? Hell no but we did the best we could. Just like most Americans. Those Americans are out there right now, speaking volumes. Can you hear them? No? Most children can’t hear Mom and Dad when they’re called in for supper, chores, homework and bed. They hear ice cream of course but little else. It’s not really their fault it’s ours. The parents. Us. We’re just going to have to fix that little thing and teach you to listen more and talk less.

My daughter is mostly conservative (I don’t want to put words in her mouth but I’ve met the girl once or twice and I think I have a fair idea of her positions and basic nature). Are you liberal children trying to tell me that she’s unqualified for higher office in this country because she has chosen to have her children and might want to have a career as well, owns and shoots guns (Oh dear again), loves her husband and kids, wears blue jeans and sweatshirts, quilts, and sometimes acts in ways you have oh so reasonably termed “white trash”? Guess again Skippy. She’s one of the smartest people I know. Way smarter than me and I’m not exactly a drooling idiot (whatever you might think). She’s been around the world. She’s served her country and continues to do so as the wife of a serving member of the armed forces. Well, he’s in the Air Force but it’s close enough (just kidding Son-In-Law). She’s raising 2 kids and taking care of a very busy household. She’s fiercely loyal to friends, family and those she loves. She’s very well read and has even explored other religions. Gasp! Say it ain’t so! I could go on and on but I won’t. The point is clear by now. I got news for you kids, she’s about ten thousand times better qualified for President (not to mention Vice President) than Obama. When you attacked Sarah you quite literally attacked my wife and daughter. Mine and a whole lot of other Americans. In doing so you unmasked yourself as the close minded, spoiled, angry children you are. You have made it clear you consider any woman not of your liberal persuasion “not qualified” to be Vice President. You also directly challenged the adults and that’s very much a no no kiddies.

We’ve been spoiling you liberal kids for too long now. It’s time to step in and do what we parents have to do from time to time, administer a little discipline. Let the spanking commence.

The first one will come in 2010. Kids, I hate to tell you this but the Democrats will lose and lose badly. It won’t even be close. You can watch all the drive by media pundits you want to. I’m sure they’ll tell you comforting things but the truth is clear to us adults. I’m sorry but Liberalism as currently practiced is a no go. It sounds all nice and gooey but the Democratic party is socialist and consorts with people we don’t think are good influences on you so No. You can’t play with them any more. Sting a little? Good.

And I’ve got even worse news for you. The American people are going to elect a woman President, probably in 2012 but for sure in 2016 and her name will not be Hillary. Her name will be Sarah Palin. Write that down and get the spelling correct, you’ll be putting it in the history books. And it’ll be us, the American adults who’ll be doing it. All colors, both genders, every socioeconomic group, every religious group. Us. The adults. Did that hurt? Good, it’s supposed to.


We don’t do this because we hate you. Quite the contrary, we do this because we love you and hold out a parents hope that you’ll see the error of your ways and become productive adults yourselves. Personally I really believe most of you are lost causes but a parent’s love knows no bounds.

Just know that this is going to hurt you a lot more than it’s going to hurt us. Still, we see no way to avoid it.

Now, go cut me a switch and you think about what you did on your way.

What a profound short little paragraph that says it all!!!

The Sarge


"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation ... You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it." ~~~~~ Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931

Rant And Book Recommendation

Just finished a book by Glenn Beck called Common Sense. Great read. Says it like it is and will hopefully get some people off their collective asses and do something about this fucked up government. The core values of this country are in the toilet. We have a president that's going around the world apoligizing and shaking hand with our enemies. We have a congress that for the most part is on the take and can't even balance their own check book let alone the nations budget. The whole government is full of coruption and greed. The house speaker just ram rodded the cap and trade through, and the only hope we have is the senate. But they too are on the take. We can't get the right equipment to our troops and Nancy just got several million to protect a fucking marsh mouse. I can't remember the last time I ate a marsh mouse or even ate anything that might have eaten a damn marsh mouse. California is so broke they can't pay attention and she's saving a marsh mouse. This government is so broken I don't know if we can fix it. Read the book COMMON SENSE by GLENN BECK. That explains it a whole lot better than I can.

(I second the Sarge's recommendation. Great book full of...well, common sense.

Response

A few days ago I wrote a letter to senators boxer and feinstein. Here is boxer's response.

Dear Mr. (The Six):

Thank you for contacting my office to express your views on H.R.2454, the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009, which was passed by the House on June 26, 2009. This comprehensive legislation aims to limit greenhouse gas emissions, improve energy efficiency, and promote alternative energies. Please know that I value your concerns and will keep them in mind as the Senate begins its consideration of this bill.
I believe that all citizens should become involved in the legislative process by letting their voices be heard, and I appreciate the time and effort that you took to share your thoughts with me. One of the most important aspects of my job is keeping informed about the views of my constituents, and I welcome your comments so that I may continue to represent California to the best of my ability. Should I have the opportunity to consider legislation on this or similar issues, I will keep your views in mind.
For additional information about my activities in the U.S. Senate, please visit my website, http://boxer.senate.gov. From this site, you can access statements and press releases that I have issued about current events and pending legislation, request copies of legislation and government reports, and receive detailed information about the many services that I am privileged to provide for my constituents. You may also wish to visit http://thomas.loc.gov to track current and past legislation.
Again, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me. I appreciate hearing from you.

Sarah

Let me just say as plainly as I can.
I am an unabashed, unapologetic, unashamed Sarah Palin supporter. Sarah is one of us. To the left and the republicans who have hammered her and reviled her and harmed her family: Fuck You. Sarah belongs to We The People, not you, and we're keeping her.

Go read this piece in the National Review Online by David Kahane. (h/t to Cold Fury).

Department of Energy

Absolutely the funniest joke ever......ON US !!!
Let it sink in.
Quietly we go like sheep to slaughter. Does anybody out there have any memory of the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY ..... during the Carter Administration?
Anybody?
Anything?
No?
Didn't think so! Bottom line ... we've spent several hundred billion dollars in support of an agency ...the reason for which not one person who reads this can remember.Ready??????? It was very simple .. and at the time everybody thought it very appropriate...
The 'Department of Energy' was instituted on
8-04-1977 TO LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE
ON FOREIGN OIL. Hey, pretty efficient, huh????? AND NOW IT'S 2009, 32 YEARS LATER ... AND THE BUDGET FOR THIS NECESSARY DEPARTMENT
IS AT
$24.2 BILLION A YEAR
IT HAS
16,000
FEDERAL EMPLOYEES
AND APPROXIMATELY
100,000
CONTRACT EMPLOYEES
AND LOOK AT THE JOB IT HAS DONE!THIS IS WHERE YOU
SLAP YOUR FOREHEAD AND SAY
'WHAT WAS I THINKING?'
Ah, yes, good old bureaucracy... And NOW - we are going to turn the Banking System, Health Care & the
Auto Industry over to government?
May God Help Us !!!


I listened to this in total amazement. Where is the out rage? Are we going to accept this as the norm??? 20 czars for hells sake that only answer to the BHO.

Below is a letter I sent to McDonalds.
I hope everyone sends them a letter disclaiming the La Raza convention that McDonalds is sponsoring, Thought you might want to do a little research on La Raza then let McDonalds know what you think.

Subject: McDonald's Web Site Comment or Question
Thank you for visiting McDonald's website. Below is your email which has been submitted to McDonald's Customer Response Center. While replies to this e-mail cannot be received, should you need to contact us again, please feel free to contact us through McDonald's.com. Thank you.

Comment: I am the grandfather of 21 grandchildren and the great grandfather of another 22 great grandchildren. In the past we have enjoyed the McDonalds experience. Taking our grand kids to McDonalds has been in general a fun experience. But after your decision to sponsor the unAmerican group La Raza. We have decide to take our business elsewhere. Burger King will be our destination from now on. I don't want not one cent of my money going to La Raza.

Not only take a peek but watch the whole thing then get off your butts and do something. It doesn't matter your political affiliation it is up to us, WE THE PEOPLE. Write, Phone, your representatives, go to your city council meetings and let them know that we are mad as hell, and we're going to take our country back.

BAR CODES: : SEE WHERE IT'S MADE!............INTERESTING INFO

This may be useful to know when grocery shopping, if it's a concern to you. The whole world is afraid of China-made "black hearted goods". Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or China ? If the first 3 digits of the bar code are 690, 691 or 692, the product is MADE IN CHINA. 471 is Made in Taiwan .
This is our right to know, but the government and related departments never educate the public, therefore we have to RESCUE ourselves. Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products "MADE IN CHINA ", so they don't show from which country it is made. However, you may now refer to the bar code, remember if the first 3 digits are:
690-692 … then it is MADE IN CHINA .
00 - 09 … USA & CANADA
30 - 37 … FRANCE
40 - 44 … GERMANY
47 ... Taiwan
49 … JAPAN
50 … UK
BUY USA by watching for "0" at the beginning of the number. We need every boost we can get!


Letter to Barbara Boxer
This gentleman has a way with words; couldn’t have said it any better…...


Subject: Letter to Barbara Boxer

Here is my final draft to Barbara Boxer. Please give it your widest dissemination. I want the world to know at least one scoundrel who masquerades as a wise Solomon and a congress in whose hand trillions are spent without even reading the bills.*******************Babs:

You were so right on when you scolded the general on TV for using the term, “ma’am,” instead of “Senator.” After all, in the military, “ma’am” is a term of respect when addressing a female of superior rank or position.

The general was totally wrong. You are not a person of superior rank or position. You are a member of one of the world’s most corrupt organizations, the U.S. Senate, equaled only by the U.S. House of Representatives.

Congress is a cesspool of liars, thieves, inside traders, traitors, drunks (one who killed a staffer, yet is still revered), criminals, and other low level swine who, as individuals (not all, but many), will do anything to enhance their lives, fortunes and power, all at the expense of the People of the United States and its Constitution, in order to be continually re-elected. Many democrats even want American troops killed by releasing photographs. How many of you could honestly say, “We pledge our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor”? None? One? Two?

Your reaction to the general shows several things. First is your abysmal ignorance of all things military. Your treatment of the general shows you to be an elitist of the worst kind. When the general entered the military (as most of us who served) he wrote the government a blank check, offering his life to protect your derriere now safely and comfortably ensconced in a multi-thousand dollar leather chair, paid for by the general’s taxes. You repaid him for this by humiliating him in front of millions.

Second is you puerile character, lack of sophistication, and arrogance which borders on the hubristic. This display of brattish behavior shows you to be a virago, termagant, harridan, nag, scold or shrew, unfit for your position, regardless of the support of the unwashed, uneducated masses who have made California into the laughing stock of the nation.

What I am writing, Senator, are the same thoughts countless millions of Americans have toward Congress, but who lack the energy, ability or time to convey them. Under the democrats, some don’t even have the 44 cents to buy the stamp. Regardless of their thoughts, most realize politicians are pretty much the same, and will vote for the one who will bring home the most bacon, even if they do consider how corrupt that person is.

Lord Acton (1834 – 1902) so aptly charged, “Power tends to corrupt and absolutely power corrupts absolutely.” Unbeknownst to you and your colleagues, Mr. Power has had his way with all of you, and we are all the worse for it.

Finally Senator, I too, have a title. It is “Right Wing Extremist Potential Terrorist Threat.” It is not of my choosing, but was given to me by your Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano. And you were offended by “ma’am”?

Have a nice day. Cheers!

Joe Legal vs. Jose Illegal

You have 2 families... "Joe Legal" and "Jose Illegal". Both families have 2 parents, 2 children and live in California .
"Joe Legal" works in construction, has a Social Security Number, and makes $25.00 per hour with payroll taxes deducted.

"Jose Illegal" also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash "under the table".
Joe Legal... $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000.00 per week = $52,000 per year. Now take 30% away for state and federal tax. Joe Legal now has $31,231.00.

Jose Illegal... $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week = $31,200.00 per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal pays for Medical and Dental Insurance with limited coverage ... $1000.00 per month = $12,000.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $19,231.00.
Jose Illegal has full Medical and Dental coverage through the state and local clinics at a cost of $0.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal makes too much money to be eligible for Food Stamps or Welfare so Joe Legal pays for food... $1,000.00 per month = $12,000.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $7,231.00.

Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for Food Stamps and Welfare. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.

Joe Legal pays rent of $1,000.00 per month = $12,000.00 per year. Joe Legal is now in the hole -<$4,769.00>.

Jose Illegal receives a $500 per month Federal rent subsidy, which entirely pays his rent of $500.00 per month = $6,000.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays and gets a part time job after work to make ends meet.

Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.

Joe Legal's and Jose Illegal's children both attend the same school.

Joe Legal pays for his children's lunches while Jose Illegal's children get free government sponsored lunches.

Joe Legal's children go home after school. Jose Illegal's children have an after school ESL program which, again, is provided free of charge.

Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same Police and Fire Services, but Joe Legal paid for them and Jose Illegal did not pay.

ARE YOU MAD YET?!?!?!
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~The reason congressmen try so hard to get re-elected is that they would hate to have to live under the laws they've passed.

Read this and pass it the hell on. Every American, no matter party affiliation, race, gender, religion or whatever needs to read and understand it. We are at the cliff edge. It'll take only one more small nudge to shove us off the precipice. We must shove back and step away from the abyss.
