Beyond the threats, bribes and corruption, the lies and deceit, from all facets of this administration you must also be wary of their slyness, what they pass - like sneaks in the night. All to attain more power and control over The People and the States. Crush the economy and the destitute will succumb to feed their families. Suppress private-sector jobs - create more Gov't jobs in their stead, and spend, spend, spend. Look, it is evident everywhere, just not exposed by the media. Pork and earmarks by the thousands, wasting billions, by both parties and having nothing to do with jobs or stimulus. Even a child understands or accepts, when a parent says, "Look, we just don't have the money now for toys and candy" - not Congress! A secret memo has surfaced. The Fed Gov't is actively pursuing (seizing) over 13.5 million acres (so far) in land grabs from western states. They can then stop job creations in forestry, ranching, mining and energy development under the guise of environmental protection of endangered species, or the like. Remember, just recently the upstart EPA told Congress (our elected body) to pass the Cap & Trade OR they would ORDER it done, for the "overall good." Get used to that attitude and terminology. You will hear it a lot as they clamp down on us in health care too - like banning salt in restaurants? Stay tuned. Didn't the reluctant Savior say he HAD to take over the banks, insurance and auto industries? Obama will grab the land to appease his environmentalist Left, much as when protecting the Delta Smelt in job-poor indigent California. 80,000 were put out of work in the "Breadbasket of America" when they shut off the water supply, and we created a greater dependency on imported fruits and vegetables. And when we have those freezes in the South, wiping out crops there are no reserves coming from the West anymore. The 21 page Secret document lists 14 large areas that can be closed to development by just declaring them "Monuments." It says all kinds of animals would be better off by doing it! The Vermillion Basin in Colorado is about to become one because it is (quote) "currently under the THREAT of oil and gas development." The threat! That is how Obama, Pelosi and the nutty Left sees it. Not as $7 a gallon gasoline and bowing to the Arabs. No one cared much about the wild horses out west a while back, until someone noticed that there were huge oil shale reserves UNDER their wild range. It was quickly grabbed - for the good of the horses. Anyway, a vote to block this was just defeated in the Senate, 58-38. Did you even know about it? How about that good old media?
Now, more about all this psychotic Gov't spending - phase 2 of economic destruction. No one with half a brain spends so frivolously in so many areas while on the brink of fiscal collapse. The FCC is now asking for $25 Billion to provide "high-speed" internet access for the last 4% of the country that doesn't have broadband. They must use slow old dial-up. That injustice can be rectified with a paltry $25 Billion. What recession? And as we prepare for 1/6 th of our economy to be forcefully taken over by our Gov't against our will, consider their track record. The Dept of Energy was formed 33 yrs ago to rid us from foreign oil dependency. It now has 16,000 lavishly paid Gov't employees, spends $24 Bill per year, and we import more oil than ever! The US Postal Svc is broke. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac so disastrously broke they were the chief cause of our collapse. Medicare, Medicaid, even AMTRAK - broke. Social Security is broke because all the money taxed, to set aside and fund it, the dumb a--es spent on other crap. Yes, give these idiots what little we have left. Oops, I forgot. They are just going to take it from us!
I hate to belabor the health care issue but it's always in the news. When Pelosi talks about "faith and trust" - have none! But sometimes she can be a hoot. She says, "It's going to be very exiting.... Congress has to pass the bill so you can find out what's in it, away from the fog of the controversy." Obama and Pelosi have all but stated outright, let's get it passed - promise whatever - we'll add public option and Gov't funded abortions later. We have an abject failure that they want to emulate right in Massachusetts, known as Romney Care, that neither party wants to talk about. The democrats because it is so awful and way in the red in just 4 short years (yet what they're advocating for us) and the republicans because Romney is pretty much their man in 2012 and it's his fiasco - with stigma attached.
Local schools no longer accept my newsletters for their break rooms. So much for open-mindedness in the teachers of our children. Would they read it if my name was Saul Alinsky? Our education system is a disgrace! We have the worst graduation rates and dummied-down expectations of any industrialized nation. Yet we spend far more than any other. The National Education Assoc. (NEA) is a powerful Union that pays lobbyists heavily to prevent vouchers or anything competing with their stranglehold. For every 25 students there is one teacher, and 4 well-paid Union administrators draining funds, meaning about one dollar in five actually goes for "teaching." Our drop-out rate is horrendous and 93% of our "graduates" are so lacking, they are turned away by foreign universities. Increased spending (always our answer) just fattens Union pay and pensions -our kids get nothing! Another example of inept Gov't control.
Unemployment compensation paid for 99 weeks (4x the normal assistance) becomes welfare. It costs $10 Billion per month, of money we don't have. Many prefer the handout to lesser or minimum wage jobs and won't do them. And who can blame them, witnessing the asinine give-away spending by Congress? But all of it is stupid, unsustainable - ignoring facts - the band plays on as the Titanic sinks! Just when a person gets wondering, with all this wrong-doing and reckless spending everywhere - where is the press? Up they jump, all indignant and outraged. Senator Jim Bunning felt media wrath when he demanded Pelosi and the House "honor" her commitment to pay-as-you-go financing - just uttered from her flapping lips. Simply said, you can't spend on anything new without pulling the funding from something old - eliminating something not necessary or reducing waste within it. Noble - but only if adhered to. Bunning said NO to routinely issuing $10 Billion for Unemployment Compensation checks this month, without an open declaration of where the money was coming from. For that you would have thought he was inhuman, he was so relentlessly and viciously castigated by the media. Bunning and everyone else knew the people would get their money, maybe a week late, but all of it. He tried to make a stand for principle and commitment - to Pelosi's word for once. He is not running for re-election (could not be threatened) so he spoke his mind with seldom heard truth, and paid the price. Where were his republican friends in support? Truth, and honor of commitment aren't well-received in D.C. Bunning regrets his twinge of conscience on his way out, I'm sure. The People have budget constraints - NOT Congress. ABC news had 6 times as much coverage on Bunning's good intentions (with outrage) as Rep Charles Rangel, stepping down (with dirt all over him) as Chairman of the Ways & Means Committee. He has been under investigation for nearly 2 years for a bunch of ethical infractions. He is another tax cheat and liar and on the take, but having been around for 40 years he knows where all the skeletons are buried, and how to play the game. Pelosi knew about his latest (Corporate paid trips to the Islands) since October but there is "honor" among thieves, in spite of her vow "to drain the swamp" and rid the House of snakes. And the media says, Get that guy with integrety - smear him. Ignore that writer of tax laws that "forgets" millions to declare (for years) on his own taxes and is obviously, actively on the take. Think he will ever pay interest and penalties - like common folk? He belongs behind bars but that's not news to the media. That's business as usual in Washington. Besides, he's a good and useful friend of the President and Speaker - therefore, OUR friend. We all LIE in the same big bed.
67% of High School seniors, when asked where the statement, "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need." came from said - the US Constitution. How sad. But it describes our pathetic schools and progressive taxation and re-distribution system perfectly, doesn't it? It was Karl Marx, self-avowed enemy of Capitalism, who said it, the founder of Communism. Saul Alinsky worshipped at the Marxist alter and wrote "Rules for Radicals" which is like a handbook no one in Obama's circle of friends is without. They read it religiously, follow the doctrine closely, and doggedly apply its tactics on us. This is their bible. Alinsky mentored Hillary Clinton and most everyone Obama grew up around and chose to be with. She wrote extensively and admiringly of Alinsky in college. Obama was a bit young then, but absolutely fixated. Give him time and "Rules for Radicals," Alinsky and Marxism will be taught in schools in place of our Constitution! Today, he is just shepherding our juniors and seniors in high school for his purposes. Yes, like sheep. They sign papers and volunteer for extra-curricular "teaching" for 9 weeks. As Alinsky's very impressed son said (quote) "Obama learned his lessons well."
The purpose of hundreds of Billions of dollars borrowed from China was to create lots of jobs we were told. The very best jobs of all for America are those sacrosanct "Green" jobs we are told - like wind power and solar power. If WHAT we are told (once again) is NOT B.S. explain why 70% of all our wind and solar components are manufactured in Communist China - from whom we borrowed the money? NOW we are concerned with rewarding the lowest bidder? From anywhere? Of course, union-wage labor can't compete with child slave labor. Following Obama's reasoning, the kids of China should be shipped here or illegal Mexicans should be assembling and installing the finished products here. Doesn't this lying deceitful crap continually fed to us and unreported by the media get you riled up? Remember it well come November. And progressive spokesman, Harry Reid saying it was, "a really good day in America" because ONLY 36,000 American families lost their jobs in February.
It is grim irony and a parallel reminder that we pay exorbitantly for Arab & Mid-East (Muslim) oil. They too, laugh at us and use OUR money to finance war and terrorism against ourselves. We are financially destitute with an apologetic, so-called leader bent on keeping things going just as they are. Why? Give any "good" reason in his defense. Any. Especially after I reveal the lies to you about oil. A huge majority of the American People are totally against borrowing and jobs for China AND oil dependency because it defies any common sense, just as totally overhauling our superior health care with no attempt first to "fix" just the parts that everyone knows need fixing. In these terrible financial times, explain this unceasing open defiance of what "The People" want. Why no immediate war against abuse and fraud in Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security? We all know it is rampant. Why the wait? And the health care changes they say we are in dire need of, why an immediate taxation for 4 years BEFORE the changes will benefit anyone? I'll tell you why. Because voters, especially Seniors, will be FURIOUS with their LACK of benefits and long lines, and Obama would stand NO chance for re-election in 2012! And why are Billions of stimulus dollars blown on earmarks - so many it boggles the mind, everywhere, with many obvious payoffs and pay raises for Union employees coast to coast? Congress now wants overpaid Gov't union employees that are bi-lingual (Spanish of course) to get an additional pay boost of 5%. Why not just say, "no English - no benefits," and try to save us a few bucks! All Obama, Pelosi and Reid regurgitate are lying words and empty promises. Their every action is, in your face, go to hell to The People. We will do what we want - when we want. Obama radiates exasperation from having to explain things so many times to (in his mind) dimwitted taxpayers. Everyone needs to know about the oil shortage lie that has been perpetuated for at least 40 years - a lot like global warming. Yes, it eventually will be gone, and the Sun will burn out too - don't panic. But, for the foreseeable future AND with simple conversion of trucks, busses and autos to cleaner plentiful Natural Gas (we have more Gas reserves and Coal than any one else in the world) any forecast U.S. shortages in the next 500 years or more is pure hogwash! The real question is why the lies? Is it really a sinister conspiracy? Who gains? The USGS (US Geological Survey) in April of 2008 updated their report of 1995 on recoverable oil in North Dakota/Montana's Bakken Formation to 25 times their original estimate. There are 3-4.3 Billion barrels of sweet crude (best for gasoline). In 1999 Geochemist, Leigh Price estimated a possible 413 Billion barrels were pooled below. A later review toned that finding down to 200 Billion barrels, nevertheless a whole lot of independency potential and jobs galore if anybody is truly interested. It would cost us about $16 a barrel (and no shipping) expense. There is absolutely no reason given anywhere why no one but T Boone Pickens is touting Natural Gas solutions. Brazil has lots of oil. They run their cars on Natural Gas!
With all the sleazy "deals" made to get votes for Obama's health care do you really think it was a coincidence that House democrat Jim Matheson of Utah (who voted against it previously) had his brother Scott nominated to the US Court of Appeals? This was just hours after Obama said, "No more deals." Sometimes it just gets comical. It has just come to light that last fall retired Admiral Joe Sestak of Pennsylvania - where opinion of Obama is sinking fast, was apparently bribed to not run against shifty Senator Arlen Specter. The insipid Specter even switched parties to better his chances of getting re-elected. Sestak said he was offered a high position (suspected to be Sec'y of the Navy) in Gov't if he withdrew his candidacy against Specter. Sestak is an honorable man with no real motive to lie, and a duty to reveal improprieties if emanating from the White House. The W.H. is furious! Because it's a lie? Or that he made it public? My bet is on the latter. The rabble at Obama's side never lets up - good old dirty Chicago-style - bully, bribe and B.S.. He, and they, are haughty, disdainful of any and all not in their "family." That definitely includes voters, who are only a necessary manipulated means to an end - Power!
To exemplify how quickly and easily our Constitutional Rights can be ripped away I cite an example extracted from the noble-sounding Patriot Act. A "violation" of that Act that took place in Bridgeport Connecticut went like this: The FBI presented an 86 year old Librarian with a self-written Search Warrant. She looked at it and rightly said, "Who the hell are you and what the hell is this?" She then showed it to her 76 year old assistant. THAT is a violation of the Patriot Act which says that, if served, you cannot tell anyone - ever - about the fact any of this even took place. Not your spouse in the next room, your clergy or even your lawyer! Think of how unbelievable a violation of our rights that is! The 2 elderly ladies were arrested for that - to be tried and sentenced to 5 years in prison. When the jury was selected the FBI withdrew the charges because they knew this particular Judge (that would preside) would throw the case out AND declare this part of the Patriot Act as un-Constitutional. It seems an active court case is the only time they can do it. But our FBI wasn't concerned about 2 old ladies going to prison or trampling all over our God-given rights, or Nazi Gestapo-like secrecy, or violating their own vows to uphold and defend our Constitution. THAT IS SCARY! The FBI has self-written (routinely) over 120,000 search warrants since late 2001, effectively circumventing the inconvenience of bench warrants by judges and ignoring our judicial due process rights. Precious rights - gone in an instant - without a murmur of protest that I know of. Did you know? Add to this the IRS informant program rewarding neighbors that turn in neighbors for tax evasion and you're flirting with a police-state scenario - in America. Considering few in Gov't seem to bother paying their taxes it is especially vexing that the "special ones" would have us turn in each other. Against it, when Bush was in power, Obama now wants the Patriot Act continued on his watch -no surprise there. I say, WHO THE HELL ARE THEY - HIJACKING OUR RIGHTS - AND WHERE ARE THE TRUE PATRIOTS, NEEDED SO DESPERATELY ? !
