How did we stray so far from our Founding Fathers? Why are those in power so bent on always grabbing more power? Thomas Paine's wisdom said, "Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one." Obviously, those in office believe entirely differently, as gov't is taking over every facet of our lives. Those in office that scorn our founders' wisdom, scorn our Constitution & scorn us, The People. When do WE unite & leave no doubt, by the millions, of our scorn for them? Throw every one of them out of office! I offer here a short history lesson. Indentured servants "leased" their services out for 4-6 yrs to book passage to the New World, then became "free." Slaves were bought outright, never to be free - were considered as "property." The majority of our Founders hated slavery & freely stated so. Liberals love to sneer at our Founders, conservatives & tea-partys, lately disparaging all with the misunderstood 3/5's Rule that counted slaves as 3/5 of a person. It sounds mean, cruel, unfair, inhuman - just as liberals today want it to - spew hate (without media criticism) to gain political guilt-advantage from the unknowing - YOU perhaps. The ratification of the Constitution was at an impasse back then, & had been for years. The southern states had dense populations of slaves, but not that many "eligible" voters - slaves being considered purchased property to tend the fields & crops. The census was to determine how many representatives each state would have, to vote in the House, so southerners (for this purpose) wanted slaves counted as persons (but their owners would do all the voting). Remember, no woman could vote then either. The North said "NO." It would be an unfair advantage for power (the south had 90% of all the slaves). If the South could count their farm (plantation) slaves, someone said (somewhat sarcastically) then the North should be able to count the horses & mules in their fields. It was heated, & the compromise to finally get Constitutional agreement was to let slaves be counted as 3/5 of a person - 100,000 would be recognized as 60,000 for House Representative numbers & electoral-college voting for President. It was not sinister. It was a necessity of the times, because the South wanted to form its own country. It was a big power thing then. If you think not, consider that right after ratification, the importation of slaves shot way up. The south took heavy political control for many years from that 3/5 compromise. What the north feared was real. It would have been far more power, faster if slaves had been census-counted as "whole" people. Those loving to play today's "race card" using 200 yr old 20-20 hindsight will keep it a festering issue, with media play, for current politics. Fan those flames to your advantage. Ignore the facts of history. Better yet, media, twist & distort them - even lie for still more advantage. Anything goes, just like importing lots more slaves. Cunning takeover of power took us to Civil War back then. Is it rearing its ugly head again?
Obama has over 1,000 advisory panels with over 74,000 members, costing over $400 Mil to taxpayers. In 2000 they cost us $215 Mil & apparently were giving us better advice. Jeff Immelt (Gen Elec) CEO was just Obama-appointed to chairman of the New Jobs Council. This inept bozo ran GE right into the ground, so Obama appointed Immelt onto his Economic Advisory staff after giving his GE $26 Bil in loans. Look how that turned out. And, GE (Immelt) gets huge gov't contracts from an appreciative Obama for all of the sickening propaganda crap Immelt's NBC, CNBC & MSNBC supports him with. GE will get immense gov't Green-energy contracts as Obama's EPA shuts down coal power & mining jobs. GE will take even more of their jobs overseas (where 53% of their workers are already) when Immelt chairs that "New Jobs" post while simultaneously running GE. Neal Boortz said of Obama & Immelt, "They are so in bed together, it's amazing that Immelt is not pregnant!" Immelt gave orders to his 3 "Propaganda News" stations to not say anything negative about Obama, starting early in his campaign. You see his rewards everywhere.
Obama & Company likes to quote the CBO (Cong Budget Off) for facts & figures on how much will be saved, or how such & such can be financed with no "cost" blah blah etc etc. But it's just as the head of the CBO shrugs & says, "Garbage in - garbage out." Their opinion isn't asked, like, does it even pass the "smell" test? I say often, "Figures don't lie, but liars figure." Obama's liars never stop. They just use the CBO's credibility to "sell" their garbage. The figures & scenarios they continually give are a joke but their instructions are to just report back the numbers IF this info given to you is real. The CBO doesn't like being used, just like scientists didn't like "lying" & being used, using false "facts" & numbers to "verify" global-warming. The "smell" test on ObamaCare would tell even an idiot with a head cold that you can't pull $450 Bil from Medicare (which is on the ropes even before all the "boomers" get on board) without very serious repercussions. And yet, that's the only reason it's even remotely "affordable." It's all sheer nonsense that taxpayers know, but their idiot representatives supposedly don't. Obama also didn't bother to include $115 Bil of cost just to implement his "Care!" And, the CBO was told to include the taxation of big Union's "Cadillac" insurance plans that Obama knew he would immediately exempt from paying. It goes on & on, yet only about 16% of all media questions any of these miracle-funding lies! The only bottom-line question really needed is, "How many Trillions is it going to cost us for this pie-in-the-sky B.S. Utopia!? This is why it was fast-tracked unread, but to not be exposed for its economic destruction until after Obama's re-election! New FL represent Allen West (one man you must watch for our future) says it well, "There's a dishonesty in the liberal/progressive/socialist agenda that comes down and says, 'We're here because we care about you; we want what's best for you.' But really, what they want is the control of your life." Just last issue I reported that over 200 organizations & groups (1.5 Mill people) had waivers from compliance. Over 500 more have been added, (729 total) so far! Represent Trey Gowdy (R-SC) said, "If there are exemptions, what was the process by which they were sought and given?" They just have W.H. connections, Trey. That's all that's needed! There are many more to come. These too are violations of our Constitutional rights (individuals & small businessmen) to equal protection under the law. The big guys squeal & squawk & have the lobbying clout, or are already in the fold, so the small business (job-makers) are nailed again, as Obama continues talking "jobs priority" while he slams the door. There's one set of laws for Obama, Congress & all their friends & another set for all of us dummies! Obama studied Constitutional Law for only one purpose - to exploit every weakness & loophole. But our brilliant Founders designed a flawless document. Only the flaws & weaknesses of those in Congress & our Courts can be exploited by evil power-seekers. Only "The People," when they've truly had enough, can remove every damned one of them. I, in my heart, do believe they will - one way - or another. Bill Cosby says, "There are four boxes to be used in defense of Liberty: The soap box, the ballot box, the jury box - and the ammo box. Please use in that order."
Bill Maher (another pathetic liberal comedian with a national audience) gets to rip apart tea-party Americans, our Constitution, our Founding Fathers, belief in God & shout out how rotten & nasty America is. For this he gets paid enormously by our (his words) stinking capitalist system, & his ridicule gets lots of laughs from other lousy Americans. First, you need to know that "tea-baggers" is double entendre - one is an obscene term amongst crude individuals - natural insulting humor to Maher. He said, "Now I want you tea-baggers out there to understand one thing: While you idolize the Founding Fathers & dress up like them, & smell like them, I think it's pretty clear that the Founding Fathers would have hated your guts. And what's more, you would have hated them. They were everything you despise. They studied science, read Plato, hung out in Paris, & thought the Bible was mostly bulls--t." Maher (& Michael Moore) are so like Obama, Pelosi & Reid. They can all just openly lie like crazy & it is readily accepted as truth or humor. And they also treat you like you're so stupid you need to be led around by the nose. You can't be trusted to make the simplest decisions. That other unfunny (loud, full of lies & hate) comedienne, Janeane Garofalo blasted tea-partys (on poisonous MSNBC), "They have no idea what the Boston Tea Party was about. They don't know their history at all. This is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism straight up. That is nothing but a bunch of tea-bagging rednecks." Maher says, "We have democrats for only one reason, to drag the ignorant hillbilly half of this country into the next century, which in their case is the 19th. They don't understand the issues, they're too stupid. They're like a dog. They can understand inflection. They can understand fear. They can understand dominance. They don't understand issues. You can't actually explain issues to a dog."
Four months ago a far-left wacko attempted to assassinate Gov Nixon of Missouri. 22 yr old, Breznik wore a bullet-proof vest & tried to slash Nixon's throat. He mistakenly cut the throat of the college Dean instead, before he was overwhelmed. The Dean is OK, but this would have been big "news" if it had been any nut on the right, that could even remotely be tied to Palin, Beck, Limbaugh or Tea Party. You know the press stampeded to the blood, full of hope - but had to say, "Dang it! Put down the cameras. He's one of us." Did you see or hear one word of this assassination attempt of a top official? Amazing! More evidence of the sleazy left media.
From the promise of, give us a near Trillion in Stimulus & we'll keep unemployment below 8% to present-day loony-tunes Pelosi saying they saved us from certain 16% unemp & crabbing that they're not getting enough credit, it boggles the mind. Only the addled could spend wildly, like a maniac, then announce (with a straight face), "Deficit reduction has been a high priority for us. It is our mantra, Pay As You Go." Just 3 months ago she said food stamps created jobs! About unemp benefits she said, "This is one of the biggest stimuluses to our economy. It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative." You might (very loosely) think that this spending gift will help maintain the status-quo (artificially) for those still working, but in NO way can it "create" a job! You can't take money out of the private sector (taxes) & then put that taxed money (now as unemp pay & stamps) back into that same private sector as purchases & say that creates jobs! That is a shell-game explained with political double-talk, smoke & mirrors - and assuming that those listening, are idiots. How did this air-head get to the top & amass all her millions? She totally embarrasses herself. She even said that Obama created more private jobs last year than Bush did in 8! Her brain is mush. These aren't gaffes - it's blathering nonsense. If she was republican our blood-thirsty media would rip her to shreds every time she opened her mouth. Her reasoning, facts & figures are just pulled out of the air. Obama's are too, but he is a calculating, systematic liar. She just rambles. HE is dangerous. When I hear her, the system scares me. But if she, & gaffe-a-minute Harry Reid are considered among the elite - we aren't really up against much, once you see through that lying media support protecting them.
Back before the democrats (Pelosi & Reid - 2004) got the reins, the worst school district in the nation (DC) started getting student vouchers to attend private schools (courtesy of Bush & repubs). Obama attended a private school, so do his daughters. Vouchers were a resounding success. Parents were thrilled, so Obama killed it in 2009 because of teacher's Unions pressure. It made their lousy public system look bad. They even revoked 216 that had already been approved. The new Republican House is now pushing to re-enact it - giving $8,000/yr for elem students & $12,000 for HS. Not only successful, it's comparatively very cheap! No wonder it's so hated by teacher's unions. Cost per public DC student now is $28,000 (not $8-12,000)! Another obvious stupid waste of taxpayer money - more than twice as much for half as much! How could there be ANY debate? Any resistance whatsoever? Get their names. Shame them & run them out of office! We spend more than any other nation on earth - in monumental failure. We get embarrassed in any world scholarly competition anymore - we don't even enter Math! And Obama (SOT Union address) wants to "invest" (spend even more stupidly) in our public education. Stimulate those Unions some more, sir - & send your kids to private.
KSM (Mohammad) was video-taped decapitating Dan Pearl AND masterminded the 9/11 attacks killing innocent thousands. He still has not been brought to trial, nearly 10 yrs later. Att'y Gen Holder & Obama have us looking like fools in the world's eyes. 13 yrs after the 1998 bloody Embassy bombings, we finally got a US court (expensive circus) conviction of Ahmed Ghailani. He was acquitted on 284 of 285 charges. Were 284 of those just to string out & pad lawyer's pay on both sides (since we pay also for the defense)? Or are we so inept that we fabricated 284 offenses? Or was it a sign of how scary a jury can be? Obama has quietly succumbed (no media outrage) & decided to have military tribunals at Gitmo - which he still hasn't closed, after adamantly swearing he would, as a first order of business. He campaigned (milking the media) heavily, ripping into all of Bush's anti-terrorism policies (wiretaps, drone attacks, oversea prisons, military tribunals, etc. He now has adopted them all himself, but without the media outrage Bush got daily. Think he'll ever apologize to Bush?
Did you know that when China's Chairman Hu came here that the parade route had "paid" students all along it chanting, with lots of waving flags & banners in front to block out the human rights protesters? Students on Chinese scholarships were ordered to attend for int'l show. They worked in Chinese embassy organized shifts. They were also promised plum jobs when they return home, if they serve the Party well, abroad. But the crowds were told, "If interviewed, just say you came spontaneously to do the welcome & paid all your own costs." The Chinese leave nothing to chance. That Chinese pianist (at the big DC show) played a "ridiculing ditty" (Korean Conflict era) with hidden American insults (in the lyrics not sung) that the massive China TV audience back home could laugh at. They were previously informed (probably ordered) to watch, laugh & enjoy. It goes with Hu's speech that went without interruption by an interpreter right to the end. Then, a long prepared English version was read. I'll bet anything they weren't the same - just like Ahmadinejad of Iran does. Our media wouldn't say boo if they knew, since Obama applauded the speech and the ditty. And, when over there (in China) Obama exited the Imperial Palace (11/09), he went through the "Gate of Divine Prowess" as all must do. But their Communist TV coverage said Obama went through the "Gate of Obedience & Purity." Their unending subtleties denied him that "honor." When pres Nixon went there he had to extend his arm way out to shake hands, because the Premier had a bad arm they said. Their photo & media said to the populace, "See how long Nixon's arm is stretched out? That shows the U.S. is reaching out to us." China's new "Stealth" fighter was unveiled just a week before Sec'y of Defense, Gates arrived there for talks. It is almost the mirror image of our stealth - imagine that. Of course, no one has seen it do more than taxi around on the ground. That is their way. China can easily, openly up-stage & make world-wide fun of us, with this apologetic, mushy & ignorant administration.
Rham Emanuel wants to be mayor of Chicago. An appellate court said he lacked residency qualifications (like some question Obama's). But the state supreme court got him back on fast-track, ruling with lightening speed (7-0) that he does qualify. It's amazing how fast they can get to it & render a decision when motivated. Illinois Gov Daley & Obama want Rahm as mayor, along with crooked ACORN & the Unions with their hands out. Interestingly, Rham has $12 Mil to spend to get him there. His 5 opponents (all together) don't have half that much. Another strategic office bought even before the election formality. Yes, he is way out in front in the polls in just a matter of hours. And yes, another Illinois' Daley (family history of corruption) shoots off to DC to side with Obama - taking Rham's old job (WH Chief of Staff). Why doesn't all this bother half of this country?
We are the only industrialized country (unbelievably) that does not have an energy program, what our needs are - & will be 10, 20, 30, 50 yrs from now. How will we achieve those needs? If we drill for oil all over for our own oil, they say it will take 10 yrs before we see real benefits. Well, why didn't we start drilling 10 yrs ago? Or 20 or 30, when the Arabs jerked us around with long lines at the pumps for expensive gasoline? How many times do you have to get your nose rubbed in it? We are energy "pigs" by world standards. If you're going to be "pigs," at least recognize the obvious & plan ahead, otherwise you become just stupid pigs. Why do we not ask, where electricity comes from to plug in all those electric cars, as Obama shuts down coal-fired power plants & jobs all over? Don't say wind & solar without smiling. Highly polluting China is now building TWO coal-fired plants every week, doubling their previous efforts as Obama shuts ours down! When will all those power plug outlets or battery-exchange stations be installed nationwide? After you pay heavily to charge it up it will quickly become weak & listless north of the Mason-Dixon line half the year, nigh useless in a Michigan winter, climbing a hill. Cold kills batteries! Ever think of that? What a buy for $40,000 plus. What visionaries.
Note that the anti-gov't protests in Egypt (tens of thousands) against Pres Mubarak are clamoring for democracy ("hope & change"). VP Biden says Mubarak is "not a dictator," but he shut down all communications - telephone & internet! Is this a close parallel to (Obama's & Cass Sunstein's) intentions for an Internet "kill-switch" here? Be very concerned with what is going on over there. Not only Egypt, but with terrorist Hamas having taken over Lebanon & Palestine. Tunisia's open rebellion & successful demonstrations inspired Egypt's people taking to the streets. Jordan's situation is precarious & Yemen is about to fall. These Muslim countries were not ideal, or democracies to our American way of thinking of freedom & such, but they live in a vastly different world than we & we can't select who heads up their country. We can only negotiate & deal with who's there, or they selected - no matter how distasteful that often becomes. Otherwise, Iran, Hamas & radical Islam take over everywhere over there and march West. They are doing so now, but it's rapidly picking up speed. Beware & learn all you can about the "Muslim Brotherhood." They are evil to America in every way imaginable - yet Obama rather likes them. The "Hood" is prodding & provoking, organizing & instructing (handing out how-to pamphlets) at these demonstrations of unrest to escalate it to rioting, looting & killing. It is far more radical than here, but like the internet shut-down, the sly organizational efforts & prodding of big Unions & ACORN for unrest here is eerily similar. In the vacuum chaos causes, Iran, Hamas, & radical Islam will seize control - in the guise of helping, protecting & taking care of the people. They will promise "Hope & Change"- then Hope is dashed as Change is for the worse. Is that happening here? Sound familiar? Do you see more violence, unrest & distrust in America today? Like in the last 2 years, especially? Obama constantly insults & rebuffs America's long-standing allies, while apologizing repeatedly to all those that would do us in, or certainly enjoy seeing us, "done in." No other president in history has acted in such a puzzling, arbitrary, incredulous way - like, he's not one of us, & he wants the Muslim world (& anyone else not liking us) to know that. If Egypt falls to Hamas, who has vowed there will be peace only when Israel is wiped off the map & every Jewish man, woman & child is exterminated, Israel will undoubtably retaliate invasion from all sides with nuclear arms. What will we do? We may soon be looking at all the ingredients for World War III! Radical Islam & Muslims world-wide are thumbing their noses at America & the West. Go ahead, bow, extend your hand, reach out in peace, Obama. Maybe they'll let you keep a piece of your hand.
