Issue 26


About 30 years ago (as I matured) I became disturbed at a pattern in the election process. It seemed I was always voting for the lesser of two evils - not FOR someone but AGAINST the other poorer choice. That’s not right, when it is seemingly every time. When Obama ran for president my first reaction was “great” because I intended to vote republican anyway. But I was truly happy to see how far this Country had progressed from the disgraceful days I saw in the late `50s and `60s of racial discrimination in America. I was proud of how well he was received - until I looked deeper and saw his poisonous past. I was tired and weary of eight years of Bush and his wild (democratic-like) spending. And with eight years of Clinton before him I didn’t want Hillary and her “progressive views” in there for another eight. McCain was bland and I really didn’t like his views on illegal aliens and the border and buying into Global Warming to the degree that he was reluctant to drill here, drill now and get us off that damned dependence on Arab and Mid-East oil! Then along came an electric Sarah Palin - anxious to drill, and I saw immediate vitality and energy, and a genuinely proud American candidate - not seen (by me) since John F. Kennedy! I saw a real person unsoiled by dirty politics and tactics, with passion and a vision for a resurgence of America. I didn’t give a damn if she didn’t have experience. The experience Obama, Hillary and even McCain had were negatives to my thinking. I’ve grown to despise that kind of experience - how to play the “game” in politics and Washington. Ronald Reagan didn’t know “squat” about being president, but HE KNEW that. He surrounded himself with a cabinet of very wise and experienced people to advise him, and he was wise enough to follow their advice - hence, he BECAME an excellent president, and (like Palin) no one questioned his passion for America! Today, you BUY your way into office with enormous sums of money from evil billionaires and Hollywood and corporate lobbyists - money used to publicly smear and disgrace your opponent. There is no real debating of issues anymore. You align yourself with masters of deceit and clever liars to teach you. They are “hired guns,” professional diggers of dirt and slinging mud. It can be selected individuals or (if you’re democrat) an ACORN-SEIU army of bullies, corruption and crooks that will deliberately cheat and even break laws to get their candidate IN! Once you’re in, all those scummy people will have their hands out, to be rewarded for a job well done. To actually vote FOR someone vibrant, alive, with passion for our Constitution and love of Country, my God, wouldn’t that be something? If someone stood up and said, “We can’t spend what we don’t have. America will be dependent upon no one, if I am elected!” Wouldn’t that be special? Do you think it will happen in our lifetime?

When Medicare was first conceived they said it would cost $9 Billion - it became more than 10 times that. They said Medicaid would cost $1 Billion - look at it now, and our bloated Social Security! All Gov’t run and near bankrupt! NOW they want control of THE REST of health care. Why? They say to cover the 47 million uninsured -their plight is terrible. For a little over a Trillion dollars (1.2 Trillion) we can get it done. This they said a couple of months ago. Part of their financing plan is to force the younger taxpayers, who are well and feeling indestructible, to buy insurance or pay a $1,000 fine (tax). They now admit that about 20million “unfortunates” will STILL not be covered after this horrendous expense, so it’ll only get about HALF done. What about the half NOT done? They aren't even talking now about them! Doctors are vociferously against having the Gov’t getting between them and their patients AND taking a big cut in pay through dictated pricing, while still nothing’s being done to curtail their huge expense for trial lawyers, or malpractice insurance. Taxpayers are screaming about the enormous total expense. Seniors are hollering about the rationing of care about to come their way through proposed cuts of $500 Billion in Medicare financing. Now comes the “figures don’t lie, but liars figure” part. Seniors will get $250 checks in the mail to help placate them. Pelosi has “cut” the projected expense down to only $900 Billion. Remember, Gov’t projections of cost are about 10% of reality. But how did Pelosi whittle it down to under a Trillion? She (or they) created another Bill considered to be “the doctor fix.” That Bill pulls $247 Billion OUT of the original Bill. Over a trillion is too offensive, under a trillion sounds better but changes nothing in their shell game! Her shuffle of funds sounds like a cut only if you have mush for brains, which she thinks we have. It is just a separate pile of money to show and assure Doctors they won’t have to take a cut in pay - at least to start. Their cuts in pay will come later when the cash pile (or bait pile) runs out, but Pelosi’s Bill will already be in place - for Gov’t control. No one has pointed out that many hospitals that will take a dictated hit on what they can charge will also go bankrupt. They barely get by now. Doctors will get out when that “pile” is gone and no new ones will study to get in, but hospitals are stuck. Anyway it’s just Pelosi playing with numbers - “skinning the cat another way,” to get that Gov’t foot in the door, like her wanting to change the term of Gov’t option or Public Option to “Consumer Option” - people don’t like those other terms. She thinks we are simpleminded. Terms, “Opt-out” and “Trigger” you'll also hear. ALL = foot in door!

Lord Christopher Monckton is a climate change expert, and has great objection with many “facts” and figures of Al Gore’s global con job and huge personal money-maker. Monckton says he has read the Global Warming Treaty that Obama is going to Copenhagen Denmark to eagerly sign in December. It is 200 pages centered around “Climate Debt.” The United States and other western developed countries are considered "responsible" (not India’s or China’s smokestacks) for global warming, even though we’ve documented that the planet has been cooling for the last 8 years straight. But the Treaty’s first purpose is to create a New World Government - a Communist Gov’t. (We seem to have a few czars or advisors warm to Marxism and Communism don’t we?) The second purpose is a transfer of wealth from western countries to poor third-world nations (that transfer or redistribution sounds familiar too, doesn’t it)? Monckton said nowhere in those 200 pages were the terms: election, democracy, vote or ballot. All the 3rd world countries will sign the treaty because they think they will get a bunch of money in reparations. The western left-wing regimes will rubber-stamp it. Russia and China will sign it just to laugh and watch us squirm. The third purpose of the Treaty is enforcement. The U.S.A. will be the biggest payer and will not be allowed out, once signed in. Obama will sign. He was just awarded a ridiculous Nobel Peace Prize out of Copenhagen. Now you know why, and doesn’t it all tie in neatly? He will sign away our sovereignty with a big smile, our freedom, democracy, and prosperity - forever - in the blink of an eye! IF anyone over here is inclined to stop him, there probably isn’t even time. You don’t hear much about this in the news, do you? And I know it sounds too ridiculous to be true!

There are between 8 and 9 million people in New York State. Only 44,000 people pay HALF the taxes generated! 1.1 million of the richest people have left the state.. What do these things tell you? And how long before those 44,000 are gone? Then what?

Who was that gal on the news (supposedly knowledgeable) and speaking for the Gov’t that said, “The stimulus package has done all it can do?” 24% is all that has been spent. Just thought that simple statement was newsworthy, like Speaker Pelosi’s, “It’s not a tax increase. It’s elimination of a tax decrease.” ???

Alan Grayson (Florida Democrat) said the Republicans’ health care program is, “Get Sick and Die!” He also said Bernanke’s Aide was, “a K-street whore” and FOX News was, “The Enemy.” After these recent quips, Obama said Grayson was a “great” representative.

In some schools in the Northeast they are serving “Meatless Monday” meals to “teach” responsible eating to preserve the planet. The raising of beef causes greenhouse gasses, they say. I say they are indoctrinating our kids. I hunt and eat deer. They are nearly fat-free and don’t contain herbicides or pesticides. They are ruminants, too. Do we eliminate all wild animals along with the cows? Will Obama’s nutty czars declare a National Emergency and make us all vegetarians? He has people in place that have said some crazy things. I now take him seriously! Even the crackpots.

The famous New York Times newspaper has been “in the tank” for Obama (starting with his campaign) almost as shamefully as MSNBC. The Times has even covered up unfavorable revelations to get him elected. The Times is nearly bankrupt. Tom Freidman, one of their most notable reporters GOLFS with Obama. Trust me, Obama WILL bail them out - and they will be ever grateful - and useful perhaps, don’t you think?

ACORN is vile and corrupt. ACORN will do anything to get Democrats elected. Obama, the Senate and the House are all Democrat controlled. Notice the silence in D.C. now, on de-funding ACORN? It ain’t gonna happen, folks. It’s just, “ease off `till this blows over,” and then it’s, “corrupt business as usual” - shovel money to them to continue heavyhanded, crooked support. 40% of ACORN’s funds come from Gov’t to support just Democrats!

$638,000 per year Stimulus funds keep a National Park maintained that is not even accessible by road. $700,000 was spent to put beepers on busses when they make a turn. Waste plus noise pollution. Millions are spent to buy up all the empty seats on planes that only have 1 or 2 passengers daily (sometimes none). All over, City and State and Union employees (already working) are getting RAISES with Stimulus funds. For some, times aren’t so bad! News just out says “Cash for Clunkers” actually cost taxpayers $24,000 per car sold! We were told buyers would get $4,000 as incentive to buy. Many of the (rich?) Congressmen that passed the Bill bought cars using that “free Gov’t cash!” Does any of this make sense? Gov’t run anything will be raped and pillaged! Just some tidbits for thought.

I started writing my weekly newsletters 6 months ago. I saw something very wrong in this Obama administration that moved me to do all I could to warn people of the danger. The more I looked, the more I found and it became even more sinister than I could have imagined. So I dedicated myself to 4 or more days a week to thoroughly research for accuracy and write my paper, do my patriotic bit in my own small way for my Country and its people. You can’t do something like this without getting emotionally involved, and in time it takes its toll. You can go quite a while on adrenaline and passion for your cause. The passion will never run out but the adrenaline is running low, folks. I love to fish and hunt and have reached that stage in life where I can (if I want) do it 7 days a week. I saw the summer go by with practically NO fishing getting done. Well, as much as I like fishing, I am a real hunting nut, especially deer hunting in the fall. I MUST go hunting and tune in to my other passion. I will begin now to write my newsletter twice monthly (the 1st and 15th) instead of weekly. That will also help me contain the personal expense of it. I had hopes that my web site would be “discovered” by someone “out there” nationally. My web site is better quality and has more information than my paper letter. When you have a Wednesday deadline and a typist and “hurry up” proofreading toward the end, “stuff’ happens, or must be left out. I invite you all to visit my site, which also has related links for your perusal. Those without computers can use the Library’s. They also have my printed newsletters beside the fireplace. The Frederic Library also has my letters.

I reasoned that if a few hundred people in a town of a few thousand really found my viewpoints interesting why wouldn’t hundreds of thousands of similarly sized towns across America read my paper? The same amount of time and energy goes into the project whether 300 or 300,000 or 30 million pairs of eyes see it. They just don’t know that I, or my “letter” exists. So, the Internet is great for “potential” and what “could be,” but exasperating when after 6 months, STILL virtually no one knows you’re alive. I don’t know what it takes to be discovered on the Net, and I don’t know anyone else that does either. I write. I am told people like my writing. Some thank me for taking the effort and believe as I do - we are afraid for our America. If “One American’s View” was growing across the nation (even a little) I would happily put it out weekly (even forsake my hunting). Lord knows what is going wrong in this world and needs to be addressed, can easily fill a paper every week. But, for now I’ll have to try to cram in the highlights twice monthly. Maybe some day FOX News or some individual with clout will “zap” out to the populace (e-mail, twitter, I don’t even know what most of this stuff is), “Hey, you ought to check out Phil’s Site.” I know in my mind that is all it would take. When I someday see a hundred thousand hits I know, from there, word of mouth will take it the rest of the way, and it will hit my “refresh” key! If I was reaching lots of people I could and would, go non-stop. Thanks for your following, folks and your patience in my lengthy explanation.

One American’s View, Thanks for listening, and please tell others about my website.

Issue 25


Government control or power comes in many forms. It is not always insidious and dark. Sometimes it is just stupid and ineffectual. Take the “no-tolerance” of knives and other weapons on many school properties. Any law that is enforced without common sense, compassion and some understanding, yet has possible criminal interpretations, and can besmirch a perfectly good person’s reputation or a good citizen’s “record” is stupid, AND injurious. Did you see the 6 year-old excited new Cub Scout on TV? He took a camp-out eating utensil to school to eat lunch with - a knife, fork and spoon “all in one” contraption. He was kicked out of school and became national news, where everyone saw what a non-violent sweet little boy he was. How was that not snuffed out right there at the school as too ridiculous to enforce? Then there was the 17 year-old Eagle Scout, the highest achievement that a scout can attain, in a wonderful organization, expelled for one week. The Boy (and Girl) Scouts exemplify goodness and the finest qualities in our young people - sorely needed and in scarce supply today. It takes a lot of dedication to become an Eagle Scout and this young man wanted also, to go to West Point Military Academy. Concerned about hurting his chances, he appealed and got 2 more weeks of punishment added on! His crime? Having a 2-inch knife locked up in the trunk of his car! Not even a 2 inch blade, it had a blade of less than 1 inch in length with a little handle, again, a scout utensil about as threatening as a nail file. This is obviously a decent young man, with morons judging him, in a system too stupid for words. It is “one size fits all” justice and shows the potential abuse in the wrong hands, “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts, absolutely!”

Now, consider the “fat tax” they are enacting. Diabetes is a bad disease and getting more prevalent. It is directly related to obesity, which is related to fats and sugars. Here comes the Gov’t to the rescue. Tax “Big Macs” and soda pop! Tax people into thinness - brilliant. Taxing alcohol and tobacco sure worked wonders in eradicating those scourges, didn’t it? Of course, if what the Government is really trying to do is get their hands on lots of available money (ripe for the picking) under the guise of “helping” and wiping out obesity, then it is “mission accomplished.” That is our Gov’t and a politician’s nature, certainly with easy money involved. What they SAY they are doing, and WHAT they are doing are two different things, especially in Obama World. I see it as a TAX (like “sky-rocketing” utilities) on the poorer half that Obama swears he’s for. Rich people on an evening out are served, (in restaurants) well-marbled steaks, butter-sauteed mushrooms and fine liquor or wine (made with heavy sugars) to get their fat and sugar fix. Less moneyed people eating-out, are more in line with their budget eating burgers, fries and soft drinks. Who does a “fat tax” hurt the most? Both income levels are obese.

Our Defense budget was hit for $6.8 Billion by Senators for earmarks and pet projects. The Pentagon’s Operations & Maintenance is largely for training and supplying troops fighting in the field. THEY will do with less, even cut back on training in time of war, because Senators want to maintain their image to back-home voters. They insist on building things the military does NOT want OR need, plus build an Institute to pay tribute to the late Sen. Edward Kennedy from those funds - like a $1.7 Billion Destroyer the Navy doesn’t want and 10 Boeing C-17 cargo planes, at $2.5 Billion the military says it doesn’t need! Kind of reeks of lobbyists again, doesn’t it? Or someone is going to work for Boeing after their “Civic Duty” to their Country is complet. All while Air Force and Navy combat pilots training to deploy, are getting about half the flying hours they need, due to budget constraints! Horrible, even IF we had the money!

Obama blasted Bush about failing the people of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and rightly so. FEMA did a miserable job and there are thousands of empty mobile homes that just went to rot, plus much other waste testified to the Fed’s failure. But it was a terrible failure of Louisiana’s Governor and New Orleans’ Mayor too, and it was THEIR people. But Obama made much political hay on his campaign trail blaming Bush. When Obama was recently asked why, 4 years later the City still did not have a full service hospital he said, "I wish I could just write you a check.” When asked, `Why not?’ He said, “Well there’s this thing” called the Constitution and Congress.” HE is never responsible or at fault, you must know that by now. He openly disregards our Constitution and has a democrat Congress in his pocket, and THEY love to spend money wherever they can take a bow or gain a vote. Obama writes checks to everyone, if only for paybacks or bribes for his programs. Obama, just pretend you need their votes, or it’s Goldman Sachs or J.P. Morgan. Anyway, it was just a quick stopover for a few hours on his $34,000 per couple dinner engagement in San Francisco, people he really relates to, in a limelight he relishes - fellow entertainers in a pep-rally atmosphere where he can whip them into a frenzy.

Pelosi said this Congress would be the hardest working Congress ever, honest and transparent, since she became “Speaker" and both House and Senate now held a democrat majority. I have pointed out “tons” of graft, earmarks and self-indulgent extravagance the House votes in for themselves and “Her Highness.” She said they would work 4-5 days, 6 if necessary per week to get all the things done that were so necessary, and here-to-for, neglected. Congress flies in to D.C. on Mondays (part-day worked) votes on Tuesdays and flies back to their respective homes by Wednesday night. That is 2-1/2 days a week! Thursdays and Fridays, D.C. must resemble a ghost town. The only voting done on a Friday this year is when they voted in their raises.

I know times are hard for many, but take heart in knowing that Goldman Sachs, that huge investment bank we gave Billions in aid to and helped get through harrowing times just a year ago, is snapping back in fine fashion. They just earned $3.19 Billion in this 3rd quarter - a new record in their 140-year history. Now they have to figure out how to “divvy up” the $5.35 Billion earmarked for their annual bonus pool. I’ll bet they have great Christmas Parties and New Year’s celebrations at Goldman. Be sure to drink a toast to their success in these hard times, wherever you are these holidays. J.P. Morgan Chase (another investment bank we bailed out) reported even more, $3.6 Billion in their 3rd quarter. I have already told you about the rampant corruption and collusion throughout our Gov’t with Goldman, and high positions everywhere in Gov’t, held by ex-CEO’s of Goldman Sachs. It has gone on since Clinton’s reign. It is so scandalous and “inside” dirty it is hard to believe, but it is real! And the scandalous Gov’t dealings with AIG, Bank of America, our FDIC and Merrill Lynch I told you about in previous issues. It is still there and it is still happening, as I chase down other Gov’t scandals and sleazy relationships (like czars and advisors), but it’s news again - like they’re rubbing our noses in it.

We taxpayers bailed out AIG, the huge worldwide insurance conglomerate with 173 Billion dollars in just the last 6 months. That is serious money! They are now awarding their big shots with millions in bonuses. The bonuses are needed AIG says, to retain the brainy ones that lead them into near bankruptcy. I found that a laughable statement when it was revealed that bonuses trickled down to even stock clerks and cook’s assistants, getting about $7,500 each. I don’t know what they get paid, and I don’t begrudge them their agreed upon paycheck, but $7,500 bonuses? When was the last time you got that large a bonus, and from a bankrupt company - but for the grace of U. S. taxpayers? AIG is pretty loose, spending OUR money. They say if they don’t, those cooks, clerks and CEOs will skip out and work for someone else. Darn! Can’t let that happen.

The Gov’t has limits on how much “pain and suffering” you can be compensated for in Workman’s Compensation for an on-the-job injury - no juries- no outlandish payments to be made by the Gov’t. If you are injured by a hospital or doctor earnestly trying to HELP your “pain and suffering” you can make their lives a living hell, and become a millionaire, with the help of already wealthy trial lawyers that pay Congress to look the other way. Everyone knows that trial lawyers are raping the system and driving the cost of medical care unnecessarily higher, way higher. Everyone knows, and yet Congress totally ignores this as they exhort to us how WE MUST control medical costs! These twofaced lying crooks (taking in trial lawyers’ money) have more lawyers write up a health care Bill of over 1,300 pages that (deliberately) only other lawyers can read and understand. And IN that complex Bill there is deliberately again, NOT ONE WORD about tort reform (limiting malpractice awards). In the few States that have realistic malpractice limits, which means doctors don’t have to pay exorbitant insurance premiums, and pass that cost on to patients, the medical care costs drop 40% immediately - to everybody. Why is this evidence NOT big news? It screams that IT is the biggest single asinine expense (and quickest easiest fix) - and there for ALL to see. It PROVES that capping or limiting malpractice amounts works, and hurts no one but trial lawyers, who take a mere cut in pay. But still with this so obvious we all pay (tens of millions of us) excessive medical costs because a few hundred slimy crooked politicians get a few lousy bucks from trial lawyers. For that, Pelosi, Reid and Obama say we can all go to hell, and they will happily pave the road for our departure. Don’t forget that they in Congress pay just $42 a month ($500 per year) for THEIR health care! They have the finest physicians and clinics taking care of their every whim, around the clock, as they dictate to us, what WE will have and settle for! They will throw everything we now have and understand at least, into the garbage can and start us all over, in their grand experiment. No one knows or can even calculate how much it will cost, but it STARTS at an acknowledged (so far) 3 Trillion dollars! This is lunacy, catastrophic blundering, and will drive us into certain National Bankruptcy. We cannot change our minds once this is set into motion folks, and the Bill is passed. You DO know that, don’t you? There is no “do over.” It cannot be corrected or reversed even if we throw all the bums out in the next elections - and we will. But it will be too late, and we will be well down that road to Socialism. It is also weird and ironic that as this administration is in hot pursuit of socialized medical care, they are trying to change from their proven failed socialized systems in a number of European countries to privatization (or what we have now). What in hell is going on in America? Yeah, Obama, (and the 14 or so czars and advisors you picked that are against our having guns), come take MY guns! That just might take you the better part of the afternoon! You crooks are making a laughingstock of our legislative process and our Constitution, but beware of all those true grass roots people that (as you say) “cling to their Guns and Bibles.” I know that’s funny to you, your Hollywood friends and all those anti-America organizations that moved into the White House with you. But, you have our attention now, and we don’t find you, and yours, and what you’re doing, one damned bit amusing. And I despise all the “alphabet” media doing your bidding like lap dogs, and covering up all the dirty things you’re doing to us - America. You USE them ironically, as you line up your troops to rid yourself of any and all criticism from FOX News, talk radio and that pesky internet, all while you would ravage OUR right to free speech, and whom we choose to listen to.

We are about to experience perhaps the most dastardly threat to this Nation EVER in its history. I know I seem to hit you with this kind of talk on a regular basis with this administration, but I don’t know what else I can do, except keep you informed to the best of my abilities. Obama is about to surrender our Country to the dictates of the rest of the world, the sleazy dictators of 3rd world countries, the less than useless (dangerous) United Nations, and every other country that has had it in for us all these years. It will come under the guise of cleaning up all the worldwide pollution at America’s expense. It is considered JUST and necessary, because Obama and a great many Countries (that will heap great financial rewards in retribution) are in agreement that WE caused it all. Obama is begging the world’s forgiveness, and will throw our Nation onto the mercy of the world court (scummy United Nations) pledging all the money we have and all we can borrow, to try to undo all the contamination to the environment America has caused. I will try to explain more fully next week how unbelievably devastating this will be to each and every one of us. Obama will soon return to Copenhagen - this time to drive the final nail in our economy’s coffin, and destroy America as we know it. That has been his intention from the start.

Issue #24


What can you say about the absurdity of Obama being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize? What a farce! Can any prize they hand out ever be taken seriously again? The Committee members have made absolute fools of themselves. Obama has done NOTHING at all. Nothing! I wish they would disclose all those passed over, to give it to a do-nothing, so THEY could voice their displeasure. He was nominated in only two weeks of his presidency, and was barely a U.S. Senator, and won out over 170 others! What a “prize” to cherish. A 1.4 Million dollar prize based on “potential.” Geez. Just what his ego needed to get him all puffed up again on that World Stage. And just what WE needed, to soften up even more, a wimpy indecisive U.S. President in the eyes of our enemies. He loves adoration and will now try all the harder to live up to being the WORLD’S leader and “Savior.” America’s image and its people will suffer all the more, and the snickering will build to laughter amongst those that know, and want to see America taken down. Obama will revel in self-adulation and play into their hands. Iran, Russia and China will stroke his ego while they maneuver into positions of global power, taking advantage of his ignorance and naivety - and huge ego.

Last week I read about more fraud and abuse of Food Stamps (this time) in Detroit. It was Jefferson’s Liquor Palace in this particular scenario. They ripped us off for over $130,000 to buy booze, porn and Viagra - the staples of life, and our tax dollars at work. It is just one infraction of countless examples of runaway abuse nationwide. I find it deeply disturbing that there is so much obvious fraud in our giveaway programs and so little policing. If nothing else, the policing necessary, would create lots of jobs, but no one in Congress cares. Why is that? We can disagree on whether or not we should even be helping, when we see generation after generation on the same programs, but NO ONE should tolerate ABUSE of those programs. There is no excuse whatever in not strictly overseeing those funds now being squandered - and jailing abusers. You’re paying for their existence either way. And that is why I have said those jailed or on welfare can pick the fruit, or do whatever jobs illegal immigrants are being paid to do. We are already paying them. Pay them more if necessary. And why is there no taxpayer money spent in studies of why families on welfare raise their kids to be welfare recipients? Why do we give them enough to get by, with no work or service required whatsoever. There is no reason once they get past the pride issue to get a job. No pride - no problem. When I was a child there were none of these programs, I am happy to say. Everyone had a job or lived a very meager lifestyle, or freeloaded off relatives and were then pressured and treated with scorn. What was wrong with that? So wrong that we (who exactly?) decided that we (taxpayers) would support strangers (not family obligations) to the point that (if they have no pride) they can have unlimited children and never work a day in their lives, if THEY so choose?! WE (that work and have pride) are growing smaller in numbers (with less incentive to do right) and those freeloading are growing larger in numbers. Trust me, it will correct itself in time, when there is no more money, or people willing to be so used - that silent majority getting “uppity” again. But what an idiotic stance we are supporting, apparently to the end - to bankruptcy! As children, we in my time, walked past the “Poor Farm or Poor House” with trepidation, not knowing what it was like on the inside, but knowing full well it was not a place we ever wanted to be. Family took in family in those days so that it could never be said that “one of ours” had to be taken care of by the government. Pity us today for losing touch with true humanity and family. WE (today) are the losers. I hope what we had then, is not lost forever. Families that took in family back then saw to it that those taken in, pulled their own weight while there and it was made clear, it was only until they could get a job or get back on their feet. OR they silently took in their shame and kept it IN the family. The rest of the family had pride, even if one didn’t. But the freeloading stopped right there, it didn’t expand and expand like our useless and degrading system of today. We do those on welfare today no favors. We rob them of dignity, pride and self-respect, and at great expense to ourselves. There is NO GOOD in this endeavor, for either side. Powerful words by great men speaking truth stand the test of time. People, and basic responses (human nature) do not really change much. Ben Franklin, nearly 300 years ago observed, “I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves and became richer." I’ve used this quote before but it is as true today as it was then. Who among us knows better?

Have you heard about the ASPIRE Act (America Saving for Personal Investment, Retirement and Education)? It would give $500 in a savings account to each child born in America. That savings and what it accrues to through high school presumably, can go toward further education, a first home, or retirement. It is one more Bill planned for by year’s end, to give you a heads up. It is another one of those “feel good” projects - like minimum wage increases that seem so right - at first glance, and tend to get politicians re-elected. Upon closer evaluation you will most always find flaws in the thinking - or true motives of devious minds. Proponents say having assets (even $500) has the potential to change the way people think and plan their lives. Recipients will feel more confident about their future and that they have more control over their lives. They may even get into civic (ACORN?) involvement. Wow! We could do all that with a paltry $500? What’s not to like? Well, isn’t it just another handout (something for nothing but being born?) based on a theorized “return on taxpayer investment” because each individual will become a more productive citizen? This is theory. It MIGHT happen (if you buy into this hooey at all). Facts are real, and REALLY happen. How does a broke, bankrupt system (congress) continually entertain foolish spending, printing or borrowing money we DON’T have, for NEW hair-brained programs we don’t NEED!? Never, to my mind, but certainly NOT when you’re in the financial hole! If you or I acted so fiscally berserk they would cart us off to jail for writing bad checks. ASPIRE would start out costing $3.25 Billion the first year. Those that would benefit most (I would guess) are those that would have the most babies. Now, whom might that be? Just thought I would comment on how our Congress JUST DOESN’T GET IT! We are BROKE! We can’t sustain or SURVIVE “Business as usual!” But onward the ignorant asses go (democrat donkeys) of course. The republicans say, “they’ve seen the error of their spending ways.”

If the President of the United States invited you to the White House, would you go? Think of the novelty of it. Even if you didn’t like his policies the attraction would be great. Just to be there and see things few have seen. So when 150 invited Doctors show up in white coats for a photo-op it shouldn’t be a surprise. White coats were supplied if you couldn’t follow simple instructions. Of course those invited, donated to and voted for Obama. That part isn’t news coverage though. Just like the hundreds of Doctors that marched on Washington (just before) to PROTEST Obama’s healthcare uninvited, on their own initiative, time and expense. Still Obama said Doctors supported his plan, citing the American Medical Association’s approval. But only one Doctor in five is even in the AMA. He used the same namedropping ploy in saying that the AARP was behind his plan, when seniors all across America are vehemently opposed to it. Seniors are the biggest group certain to vote in the country, which will bite him the next chance they get, but that may be too late. AARP’s membership took a serious blow at the mere suggestion. But these are the ways of Obama. He vilifies Doctors saying they amputate feet to make money, then asks for their support - whatever it takes in Obama-world. I said Doctors polled around the country revealed that 90% are against Obama’s healthcare plan and 45% will retire or quit if government option or single payer gets in. Those are facts, and would affect ALL of our health care immediately and extremely! Now, back to those turncoat whitecoats. Every profession has its extremists or renegades. Doctoring is no exception. On a nationwide scale, finding 150 is no real problem (out of a million) especially if THEY belong to a special club like “Doctors For America” (DFA) unveiled just this past spring. It’s almost like they were psychic and knew they might be useful later in the year. DFA branched off “Organizing For America” (Obama’s campaign group). DFA’s vice-president, Dr. Alice Chen is a staunch supporter of Obama and his OFA. It is tangled (what isn’t with Obama and ACORN?) but Doctors For America produced the whitecoats for the hungry news reporters and flashing bulbs on the White House lawn. You should know that the DFA is sponsored by the leftist “Center for American Progress” which is underwritten by far-left, underhanded and dirty-dealing billionaire, George Soros. And a good many of the “Doctors” on display are tied closely with SEIU, the Union, IN the White House and talking with Obama every week. See how it all ties together when you lift the covers and let in a little light? Everything Obama does, says, or doesn’t do or say, has a deliberate purpose. He is “calibrating,” always. But Obama always seems to untangle BACK to ACORN and sinister people in The Tides Foundation (George Soros) or SEIU, APOLLO, AmeriCorp, etc. etc.

Joe Biden, our Vice-President said the Stimulus program has worked out, “beyond his wildest dreams!” What in hell was he dreaming? Or smoking? When they rushed us in panic and ran off with about $800 Billion, they were supposed to stimulate the economy and create jobs. Bridge and road construction and repairs were “shovel ready” and waiting for the funds. There hasn’t been “Jack” in jobs created throughout all the 50 States. Those few realized were made to pay union scale wages, which amounted to about half of the out-of-work families actually benefiting that could have. But Obama’s Unions made out well. The heaviest spending and most visible benefits from that largesse will take place just before the next presidential election, for Obama’s benefit. Don’t you feel just a little bit used and abused? They are holding on to that unused money, even as they suggest the possible need for another Stimulus package! Their scorn for our intelligence knows no bounds, as they treat us like idiots.

I’ve written quite a bit about indoctrination of our kids in school. We send them there to learn basic necessary skills. Everyone is pretty much in agreement that reading, writing and spelling well is important. Simple math (add, subtract, multiply and divide - fractions and decimals) plus maybe some business type applications are necessary to everyone. Some basic physical science is useful, and everyone should have at least a rudimentary knowledge of history (American and world) and some Geography. NO ONE should be released from school, regardless of age, except in the most extreme of cases, without these basic abilities. I don’t think it’s fair to them or society, for them to be so handicapped starting out. Algebra, geometry, physics and chemistry are great, and rather necessary if you’re going on to college, but not practical for everyone if you don’t have the basics nailed down. The majority does NOT go on to college, or even a trade school. That is fact, so teach accordingly. It is better to spend twice as much time digesting and learning what you MUST know, to compete (with dignity) than to have many subjects available that you would like to know perhaps but will seldom, if ever use. Nothing should dilute or water down subjects one NEEDS to know, just to give students a touch of everything. Those could be wonderful electives AFTER you have mastered the basics. THAT, I believe is what education (High School) started out as, and basic education as I just described it, WAS an 8th grade education. Fortunate ones went ON to “High” School" - which was also College or Trade preparatory. The graduation rate of the youth in America is deplorable, and half of those so-called graduates, I venture to say, are near illiterate compared to the stringent standards of 50 - 70 years ago. What is even more shameful is the indoctrination that I have been raving about. The invasion of agendas by teachers, or political ideologies USING teachers. We don’t send our kids to school to learn political correctness or all about gays, gay marriages, transsexuals, and what a lousy country America has become. Some things kids are supposed to learn from their parents, their faith, or on their own, and it’s none of the government’s or teacher’s business. Our children are learning far too little about reading and writing and the "basics" because those formative first 8 or 9 years of schooling are spent "social programming." "A" and "B" grades are "too judgmental" of others. Competition is not good, because nobody is a "loser." Nobody gets a failing grade. Soon it will be like Denmark, where they have sports but nobody keeps score, because somebody might feel inferior or get their feelings hurt. Sociology class as I knew it has today become Socialism 101. We are all equal. No one is better than anyone else. Hogwash! That kind of schooling doesn't prepare you to be strong, proud and go out into the real world, maybe become a leader and leave your mark. I say, make certain no child, no matter what it takes to "teach" them, or how LONG it takes, gets released from our care and sent into the big bad world out there, without society genuinely making every effort to give them a SOLID 8th grade education, on a national standard. That is MY definition of "no child left behind." No illusions, frills, political correctness or hidden agendas - just do right by ALL of our youth (black, white, hispanic) - let them have an equal chance, minimally, regardless of background.

Issue #23


Obama finally HAD to say something nice about America. He had no choice! He zoomed to Copenhagen to cajole the I.O.C. (Int’l Olympic Committee) into bringing the 2016 Summer Games to his adopted hometown, Chicago. His wife and Oprah Winfrey preceded him in anticipation of a triumphant return. It was basically between Chicago and Rio De-Janeiro, they said. He reversed his personality once again, and even had to brush away a tear, in his magnanimous B.S. presentation to the IOC. The U.S. went out in the lst round of their elimination process - a humiliation to America, and a serious blow to Obama’s enormous ego! I loved the media’s rationale: George Bush was so hated throughout the world he made it impossible for even Obama to save us! What crap!

If you think ACORN (after all the scandalous revelations seen by so many on FOX News - and on FOX only) is going to finally get their comeuppance by this administration, for their sudden admonitions, I can only say, “I hope so,” but I have very serious doubts. Obama’s ROOTS are well established IN ACORN. Obama alluded, in his successful election that ACORN would be instrumental in his Transformation of America, and closely involved with his decision making IN the White House! Have you seen anything in 9 months to refute such a position? Only FOX News will pressure Congress to any point of action or real investigation. If EVER investigated, MUCH dirty laundry will be revealed with the simplest effort. But mostly politicians will exhort, posture and bluster, like little “Banty” roosters. It’s their way of appeasing the angry masses - soothe the savage beast. That is us of course, until we settle down, and it all blows over. Then it’s back to “business as usual.” Let time heal. Then ACORN and its missions of redistributing wealth, and Socialism, will reappear under another name, picking up where they left off. This president and his staff owe their success to Wade Rathke and ACORN, and they know it. My opinion is, Wade Rathke pulls the strings that Obama jumps to, based upon so much I have seen. I don’t expect any serious investigation of an Obama mainstay by any media but FOX. Wade Rathke founded ACORN 39 years ago. He left, or was removed, in June 2008. He “ran” ACORN for 38 of those years. ACORN IS what Rathke intended it to be! ACORN has hundreds of faces, and churns many millions of donated dollars from Billionaire Activists, dues and Gov’t grants. These funds are deliberately mixed, split up and re-channeled, some tax-exempt, some not, to confuse anyone trying to untangle the money trail. No honest orgination with any integrity would do this, but Obama loves them anyway! Obama personally gave ACORN $830,000 of his campaign money in gratitude. When confronted with the OK of the recent 13 year old girls, and pimp/prostitute tapes in ACORN Housing offices, Obama expressed mild concern and surprise, mostly that ACORN was receiving very much money from the Gov’t. He didn't KNOW he is sending them tons of money? ACORN is IN the White House with Obama and Apollo Alliance, who designed the Stimulus bill and sent possibly $8.5 Billion ACORN’S way. And Obama also proudly acknowledged a long relationship of “fighting alongside ACORN throughout his whole career.” This man and his selective memory are unreal, and of course, unbelievable! ACORN all but assured Obama’s election. success. Not only as a huge organized army, bussing people who have never otherwise voted in their lives, but in every crooked way they could conceive. Wade Rathke (ACORN) knew they now had “the perfect storm” (forming for decades). Finally, all the pieces were in place. ACORN membership, over 70% black would work tirelessly to get all the blacks to vote for a black president. Obama had been groomed for this role for years, indoctrinated, suave, articulate - self-assured. It is interesting to note that Rathke, and all those powerful supporters in the shadows, that espouse to the doctrine of ACORN, and the billionaires that donate huge sums to their “cause” are very “white.” Forgive me for being cynical of my white brethren’s benevolence. I tend to ask “why” when I see this incongruous show of compassion for the downtrodden, poor illegal immigrants and blacks, by extremely rich and powerful WHITE people. Hey, it’s not impossible, but it is certainly implausible. The powerful white people, like Drummond Pike and George Soros and others throughout ACORN’S build up, to this point are bent on overthrowing, or taking over America - I’m not sure which, but their backgrounds are power driven, not charitable. The playbook they all follow religiously is to bring America down economically, by milking every possible Gov’t handout or benefit available to the public (while creating even more, and including illegals). They pound on doors and educate the masses of “their rights” to even more "freebies" to crush America’s economy - bring her to her knees. Does this sound like a noble cause? Good people? President Clinton decided it was every American’s right to own a home. That is when we deviated from the 20% down payment standard - some buyer “skin in the game”. Make your payments or lose your 20%. Simple. No money down made no sense, especially to bankers. But the seed to our present recession was sown. How bad it becomes is yet to be known. A little sad poetry there, what with the unemployment rate and serious decline in the dollar. The bankers wouldn’t make stupid loans, so along comes ACORN to harass and threaten bank presidents at their homes, as well as work. Afraid for their families, they relent - but resist as much as possible. ACORN continues pressure, complains to the Gov’t. Bankers complain about high-risk loans on their books to the Gov’t. In steps Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (Barney Frank and Chris Dodd) to buy up all these high risk mortgages. The floodgates now open. Anyone can get these high-risk mortgage loans. Speculators (wheeler-dealers) jump in to just make monthly payments and let the house value increase (as it always has) for profit. Fannie and Freddie buy up scads of them and then the housing bubble bursts. House values go DOWN severely, but after those mortgages were bundled up (fraudulently) into AAA securities and sold to wheeler-dealers on Wall Street, or something to that effect. Anyway, the people making heavy monthly payments on a house now worth far less than when they bought it (especially if they aren’t living in it) stop paying because they have no “skin” to lose - go ahead and repossess it. Who cares? You can thank Clinton, ACORN, Fannie (Frank) and Freddie (Dodd) for the fix we’re in. Others helped, but they, plus GREED all around basically put us here.

On the rare occasion when some member of Congress shows a spark of initiative and fiscal responsibility and actually gets a bill all the way through the rigmarole - finally presented for ratification - it gets “slapped down” because of special-interest lobbyists, and our crooked “on the take” so-called representatives. Until we clean up our crooked system of gov’t we simply don’t have a chance of righting this stinking, sinking ship of state! Lobbyists and lobbying HAVE to be abolished, or their activities severely curtailed! Dope dealers make crooks out of well-intentioned cops on the street with fists full of cash. Cops see those they busted back on the street before their paperwork is done. They throw up their hands in despair, “What’s the use?” and start taking the money. I can understand that - not condone it, but understand. Lobbyists are like dope dealers, except they start out with many, all too willing participants. THAT, I don’t understand. Most of our “representatives” are eager to do the business of selling out America, for profit and personal gain. Those CROOKS totally disgust me! They should be imprisoned. Instead, IF we catch them (and who is looking - others just like them?) we slap their hands maybe. We don’t even remove them from office! The few that try to represent their people (like good cops) see all this and in time, throw up their hands in despair. In D.C., a hand up, or out is quickly filled with cash. A Bill presented to Congress by republicans in Bush’s administration, to help clean up some of the gouging of Medicare and Medicaid, by equipment suppliers to the gov’t was roundly defeated. It was simply to allow gov’t purchases from ALL manufacturers - not just 1 or 2 high priced ones. Remember the $200 or $400 hammers the gov’t was purchasing with much notoriety some years ago? Medical equipment suppliers rape the taxpayers for 2, 3, 4 times the going rate, sometimes far worse than that. Lobbyists for the health care industry spend over TWO MILLION dollars a DAY just to maintain things as they are. What does that tell you? If they readily SPEND that much daily - how damned much do they STEAL from us taxpayers PER DAY? This reminds me of when I became the new Safety Director for Bear Archery. We needed to order lots of safety supplies to comply with O.S.H.A. (Occupational Safety and Health Act). I looked at expensive purchases made in the past and compared those same exact products (and brand names) offered in brochures by other catalog suppliers, for far less money. I submitted orders to be approved, for a lot of necessary equipment at huge total savings, by being conscientious, selective and ordering from a variety of companies. I expected some appreciation, if not a resounding, “Atta boy!” for my efforts. Instead, I was rebuffed. I was told by “higher ups”, despite the thousands in savings, that we would be doing business with our “usual” suppliers. That was an eye-opener for me - innocence lost. You might say lobbyists on a minuscule scale permeated Bear Archery. Executives weren’t concerned about, or loyal to the company’s bottom line -just their perks and personal gain, in that time maybe boxes of fine cigars or fifths of the best scotch or bourbon. Who knows or really cares? But my image of virtuousness, working hard for, and loyalty to, the one that pays you, was forever altered. I resigned, not long after. I didn’t like the view - at the top. Congressmen (and women) somehow become millionaires off salaried “jobs” of $175,000, Charles Rangel as a case in point. But there are many others. The more terms they secure, the deeper in bed with lobbyists they get. They probably take solace in rationalizing, “Everyone’s doing it. Why not get mine? There is so much money. It is squandered everywhere. What I’m getting is infinitesimal!” That mentality and rationale is ripe for the picking, and scummy pickers (lobbyists) abound! America will never truly heal until we rid ourselves of the parasites in D.C.! How I long for that day.

Obama said Cap and Trade would generate $366 Billion in revenue by 2015. HE said that. MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) divided Obama’s numbers by all the households in the U.S. and came up with an “energy tax” of $3,100 per family as a result. That is rich family and POOR family - simple undeniable math using admitted numbers, now subject to changes or lies of course, if needed to get it passed. That number may be high, but what if it isn’t? Whatever low number THEY admit to you (lying to sell it) will be a whole lot higher (in the end) than even they think it will be. Every gov’t cost estimate runs way over budget. Politicians do, but history doesn’t - lie! But anything near MIT’s projection will devastate small businesses (job creators), and lower-income families, two vital areas he is supposed to HELP. He SAYS he cares. Just his latest “con” job. Remember, on the campaign trail Obama said, “electricity rates would necessarily SKY ROCKET.” Again, HE said it. WHEN are we going to learn to listen and believe what he says outright or admits to? Energy “taxes” for us all is just one of the many asinine parts of this multi-faceted equation that needs lots of deep thought and scrutiny. No one seems to address some very obvious contradictions to common sense. We are supposed to “live with” high energy costs to, “save the planet - bite the bullet” so to speak and green energy will also create jobs. It will also ELIMINATE at least as many jobs already in so-called “dirty” energy. Our coal burning is A LOT CLEANER than China and India’s is. They have NO standards and little concern. They can hardly see the Sun. Remember how they shut down virtually all factories for 5 days before the Olympics’ opening to let the clouds of pollution dissipate and blow out? So tourists wouldn’t see how bad it was or have to wear masks? THAT cloud blows over to America and the rest of the world all the time. OUR environmentalists will fine and tax our energy sky high, without one iota of concern if it bankrupts us, and it won’t make one damned bit of difference in worldwide pollution. If anything it will make it much worse! It will shut down OUR (fast disappearing) factory jobs that put minimal coal burning pollutants into the atmosphere, and send them overseas where they pump out enormous amounts of pollutants! That is one awfully stupid piece of logic! That is the crap they expect us to buy into! WE will bankrupt ourselves and lose millions of jobs for a bunch of brainless crackpots! Obama is FOR IT, because he and his people are out to destroy our economy! I see and know that! It’s just hard for me to believe that not enough people in Congress care about what is obviously happening. It wouldn’t take all that many, asking a few probing pertinent questions, digging both feet in and saying, “NO! It’s gone on long enough!” But energy intensive industries and jobs WILL be going overseas, in droves if this passes! Jobs in glass, plastics, rubber and fabricated metal, to name a specific few. And that big dark cloud of pollution will also come over and dump on us. I wish it would give just the environmentalist nuts lung cancer, but it won’t. This is bullcrap propaganda on a massive scale, and boggles the mind. We KNOW what we HAVE, just like our health care. We, in both cases, as a Nation (while in dire economic straits) are supposed to trust and believe, with what little we have LEFT, that these clowns Obama and Pelosi, know a better way? Everything they do and say defies logic and common sense.

Issue #22


America became a strong and powerful nation in an incredibly short time by historical World standards. Two big reasons for this were the uniqueness of its people, AND Capitalism. People chose to come to a raw new land, start off as equals, pioneer, work hard and compete - “Let the best man win.” No restrictions, no government limits on what the common man could achieve, earn or obtain. The people that came here were free-thinkers, fed up with servitude to the wealthy classes and the Crown. What made this Country rich and powerful was, and is, CAPITALISM! Nowhere else in the world, nobody else, has done it better. Canada and Australia, our good friends, recognized this, and were founded trying to emulate us. We were all branded as castoffs and renegades (mongrels) by the aristocracy of the Old World. “Good riddance,” they said as we left. And yes we did, in a relatively short time, “Form a more perfect Union.” Capitalism by special breeds (“just give me a chance”), and a mixture (many diverse countries) blended into the perfect mongrel - America! Extra-ambitious, extra-adventurous, thinkers, a “can do” attitude or, “Why NOT me?” America, the Land of Opportunity! NOT the land of “give me,” handouts, and welfare. Anti-capitalism IS socialism. Both are ANTI- American! Today 50% of the population pays NO income taxes, yet receives some form of government handout from the “rich and enterprising” taxpayers - and complains about it NOT being enough. Again, America is about OPPORTUNITY! Had we all gotten off the boats with 50% relying on the other 50% for survival, the Indians would have ruled. There now are many among us, trying to pull us back to what we broke away from, or worse! This is craziness, working so hard and actually PROVING it works to the World - then throwing it all away - destroying it! That is insanity!

The far-left again (or call them liberals or progressives) are front and center openly attacking America, more so than ever before in our history. By controlling the educational process from kindergarten on, all the way through college, they indoctrinate our children to anti-American, anti-capitalism views. When nearly 90% of the “TEACHERS” think and vote only one way there is a huge problem. Add to that, a Media blitzkrieg of newspapers, magazines and television, with predominantly leftist ownership (unabashedly pushing Socialism) awaiting our kids’ maturation to adulthood, to continue their “guidance,” and you have a prefect recipe for EVIL! The great plans of ACORN, Wade Rathke, APOLLO, The Tides Foundation (rich conniving George Soros types) to take over America, do not even concern themselves with you and me anymore. We are insignificant to them. We have already provided them with the “tools” necessary to accomplish their mission - the BABIES to train properly, and parental APATHY. As we in time, with that “old school” thinking die off, so dies “old school” America! Her greatness will (not long off) become a distant memory. In one, or maybe two more generations America will evolve or “morph” into the mediocrity of sameness (Socialism, Marxism, Communism) - pick one. Who cares THEN, what we become? The shining light of "America the Beautiful" will be snuffed out forevermore! But it will have happened on OUR watch! Am I sounding melodramatic, or like a Steven King novel? Don’t let this seem too absurd to be true, or possible. It is imperative that we act quickly, do all that we can. NOW! Run for your school board. As parents, READ those “new” history books demeaning America. SIT IN on classes and blow the whistle on any improper teaching or materials. We can’t sing Christmas Carols, but we can sing praises to the “Savior” president? It is ironic having the principal of that school teaching kids that song and inserting Obama’s name in place of the Lord, in “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.” He has little regard for our God, or our Republic. How about that 20 minute video, Internet “watchdogs” told FOX News about? That hit the schools in Bush’s term, 2 years ago, “The Story of Stuff.” It trashes America as a capitalist bully, using facts and numbers that are fabrications and deliberate distortions, to shock the unknowing - like children. In it, they liken our government to an army tank and stress that it is the government's JOB to take care of us. I am sick of the term capitalist or capitalism being perceived as a dirty word. This great Country was founded upon it. It is envied. That is the reason it is put down by others. It is simply free enterprise without government control or hindrance, no impeding people of ambition and vision. But those wanting to shape the up and coming generation’s thinking have ordered this tape (this chicanery) to the tune of 600 thousand educators, at taxpaying parents' expense, and is IN 7,000 schools so far! ACORN, APOLLO, SEIU and The Tides Foundation all have intertwining parts (common board members) and are in tight with Obama. The same Tides Foundation that gave the Rathke’s $850,000 to cover embezzled ACORN funds, MADE the tape that teachers are procuring in great numbers to teach our kids with. And WHY did the TEACHER'S Union donate 1-1/2 Million dollars to scandalous ACORN? Don’t all these weird incongruous connections all the way to the White House SCARE YOU with their sinister implications? They scare me!

Najibullah Zazi, the 24-year old Denver/New York terrorist is just the tip of the iceberg in home-grown terrorism plots IN our country. The numbers are building. They are getting bolder. With each failure they will get smarter and harder to detect. Profiling mid-eastern Muslims helps for now, but there will be U.S. born, twisted sympathizers (black and white) and nearly impossible to spot early enough, to prevent ALL the disasters coming. In the past 2 weeks alone, there have been 5 terrorism probes in 5 states, In Texas, Hosam Smadi, a 19 year old from Jordan, in the U.S. ILLEGALLY, tried to set off explosives to a Dallas skyscraper. In Illinois Michael Finton, AKA Talib Islam (29) drove a truck he thought contained a ton of explosives to a Federal building and courthouse, and tried remote detonation. In North Carolina Daniel Patrick Boyd and 7 others were charged with conspiracy to support terrorists, and to murder, kidnap, maim and injure people. Betim Kaziu (21) wanted to go to Somali and, “take up arms against enemies of Islam.” This soft, wimpy administration WILL bring the snakes out of the grass.

Obama is giving $2-1/2 Million to Gadhafi ’s oil rich Libya, and $400,000 to HIS KIDS’ endowments - of taxpayer’s money (or money we borrowed from China) however you prefer. The same tyrant that just trashed us at the U.N., and gave a hero’s welcome to that released murderer of 189 Americans! Obama, you stink! You shame us once again!

Did you ever see a more disgusting display of wasted money than the 5 BILLION dollars the U.S. Taxpayers throw away on the United Nations? Crackpots and despots come from the nethermost parts of the world to take turns with the microphone, insulting and deriding America, IN America. There is no excuse for hosting such derision from clowns like Larry, Moe and Curly (the 3 stooges), Ahmidinejad, Gadhafi and Chavez. Ahmidinejad again said the 6 Million Jews, Hitler and his Nazis hideously exterminated, in the vilest manner and only 65 years ago, NEVER happened! But he has a goodly portion of the ignorant third world population believing HIM, not actual historical events. WE give that sick lying tyrant credibility by allowing him to spew such garbage on American soil, with the whole world watching. A prestigious U.S. university once invited Ahmidinejad to speak to its young students, to show their tolerance for ALL to be heard in America, the land of “free speech.” - at least until Obama, Lloyd and Sunstein shut it down (like Chavez, their Idol). That same university’s students shouted down and ran off-stage, conservative dignitaries explaining a viewpoint the students and faculty took exception with. And Ahmidinejad states openly, Iran wants to annihilate ALL remaining living Jews. HE, this animal gets to speak! And there was no refutation by our stupendous orator, Obama in retaliation. No outrage from America’s “leader” after thousands upon thousands of America’s soldiers DIED in protest of such bestiality, just 65 years ago. Then, for an hour and a half we got to hear Gadhafi ’s lunatic ramblings about everything under the sun. His translator was even exhausted and quit. But he got in his gibes about America, too, as well as Hugo Chavez! Raze that U.N. building and put up a Lemonade Stand! Force these despicable nuts overseas for their rantings and America-bashing tirades. Fund them no more, and don’t bother to attend. We allow them to make fools of us. They wouldn’t put up with this crap in their crappy countries for one minute! Is there no vestige of American pride left? The only thing more pathetic than those 3 stooges, are the buffoons in Congress witnessing Obama's ever-timidness without reproach.

I must say though, I was impressed by Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel. I thought he spoke powerfully, with eloquence, presenting his country’s views and frustrations extremely well. He outwardly asked those who sat through Ahmidinejad’s denial of the Holocaust, and other absurdities, without a murmur of protest, “Have you no shame? Have you no decency?” It’s too bad he can’t run for presidency of the United States - a decent man, and a good leader in this screwed-up world, and WE are surely starved for one!

Names like “Buffy” Wicks and Valerie Jarrett don’t sound sinister or threatening do they? With hundreds of Billions of “Stimulus” dollars, Obama and company CAN (and DO) bribe a great many influential people and entities. The carmakers were told, in effect, “If you want government funds you WILL support government-run health care. Obama promised the N.E.A. (National Endowment for the Arts) huge government grants IF they promoted the president in any of four ways, two of which I remember as health care and the environment. I can visualize pictures, huge posters, banners and busts, everywhere (like past Russian and Chinese leaders) when I hear this. THEY were idolized - or else! We, of course are not supposed TO KNOW of these things. That darned internet and many “watchdog” groups, the administration intends to shut down (along with FOX News) overheard, and taped the incriminating “passing on” of the message, from the White House to the “Arts.” Since then that NEA spokesman has been reassigned, and directives have gone out on how to do things more discreetly, or secretly - “loose lips sink ships” you know. Obama hates sloppy messengers. Valerie Jarrett is like a sister, and a powerful advisor to Obama. She heads up these dirt-bag deals for money (OUR money). And “Buffy, the Capitalist Slayer” is getting the word out all across America to community groups, numerous associations, and nonprofit organizations that there is MUCH MONEY available, to “cooperative and supportive” organizations. Your National “Community Organizers” at work. Your “Stimulus” dollars are stimulating the “Image” of your president, much like the sing-song chants praising Him in public schools, don’t you think? Buffy’s previous associations were with ACORN and Unions. What a surprise. Everyone in the White House has ACORN’s playbook, it seems! Back to Valerie Jarrett. Rumor has it that she was basically a “slum-lord” in Chicago area real estate. She is apt to make lots of money if Obama’s whirlwind trip to Denmark secures the Summer Olympic Games for their hometown, Chicago. The people of Chicago are against hosting the Games but the City Council voted almost unanimously FOR it. Our “Commander in Chief,” who can zoom off to Denmark has spoken to his Field General in Afghanistan ONCE in-the 2-1/2 months of his appointment. Priorities? We are LOSING the war! Commander-in-Chief? Ha!
The Media described the masses in D.C. on 9-12 as, “a sea of protesters, angry and profane!” Yet, hundreds of thousands had no arrests and even left no litter on the ground. The recent G-20 in Pittsburgh had 7000 of the other type protesters. They had 190 people arrested, threw rocks at the police, and vandalized over $50,000 in damages. It took riot gear and tear gas to gain control. The N.Y. Times BIASED coverage of both incidents from “their” point of view was pathetically comical if you saw both videos! Glenn Beck attended a rally in Seattle at Safeco Field stadium. The Seattle press (quite a bit left) described the turnout as 40 people assembled. There were, OUTSIDE. There were 7,000 INSIDE! Any NEWS is only IF, and what, New York and Seattle “say” it is! Gotta love it!

Our allies are fast becoming aware of what we already know in the United States. Obama is a naive, conceited egotist - definitely not a leader. His diplomatic ignorance, with arrogance, alienates others and endangers world peace. His (and our) enemies see him as weak - especially Iran. The U.S. must put up a naval blockade to stop the flow of gasoline (at least) to Iran immediately. It should have been done when they began blowing up our soldiers. This regime has to be overthrown from within. Iran has much internal unrest they are already dealing with. Fan the flames! Act decisively and fast, or Israel WILL! I would like to see Israel kick Iran’s butt, but realistically, their underground bunkers will continue to expand their nuclear capabilities. Help OVERTHROW their government. NOW!
