Crap. I agree With Obama

Today, President Obama actually said something that I praised. He wants to hold teachers accountable by allowing merit pay.

Imagine that. A teacher would get paid based upon results. He also said if a teacher repeatedly fails, they should no longer be teaching. I agree whole-heartedly. But I doubt the unions will let it happen.

As well, for all of his pro-education rhetoric he is still going to sign a bill that repeals the voucher program that helps hundreds of low-income D.C. kids get an education from the same school as the Obama girls.

Why is that? Maybe because he is pandering with his words (again) and doing the opposite with his actions (again)?

Let us see how this goes.

Al Gore Refuses To Melt

I am against the idea that man has made global warming- err, I mean global CLIMATE CHANGE – worse because of his incessant need to spew CO2 gas into the atmosphere.

I cannot stand Al Gore and his continual drumming of the false facts. Fortunately I am not alone.

I Am A Bad American

[H/T: My Dad. Thanks!]

I am an American.

I believe in God.

I ride Harley Davidson Motorcycles and believe in American products.

I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some Liberal governmental functionary be it Democratic or Republican!

I'm in touch with my feelings and I like it that way!

I think owning a gun doesn't make you a killer, it makes you a smart American.

I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to anything. Get over it!

I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac, do it in English.

I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to.

My heroes are John Wayne, Babe Ruth, Roy Rogers, and Willie G. Davidson.

I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor.

I know wrestling is fake and I don't waste my time watching or arguing about it.

I've never owned a slave, or was a slave, I haven't burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks and neither have you! Shut up already.

I believe if you don't like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country!

If you were born here and don't like it you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you.

I want to know exactly at which church the Reverend Jesse Jackson preaches, where he gets his money, and why he is always part of the problem and not the solution.

I think the police have the right to pull you over if you're breaking the law, regardless of what color you are.

I don't mind having my face shown on my drivers license. I think it's good.

I'm proud that 'God' is written on my money.

I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don't want you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years.

I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making 'donations' to their cause. Get a Job and do your part!

I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents.

I believe 'illegal' is illegal no matter what the lawyers think.

I believe the American flag should be the only one allowed in AMERICA ! If you are so proud of your old country, feel free to return (with the flag).

If this makes me a BAD American, then yes, I'm a BAD American.

Stop Picking On Undocumented Workers

After all, what harm is there in having a few illegal persons doing work for good old Uncle Sam? Does this not help the economy go?

Well, let us start with Health Care Costs. Then, let us look at the USA Today, who actually have decided to let people know how many illegal alien jobs the so-called stimulus bill will save.

I guess since many illegals are returning to Mexico due to job loss, the Obama folks are just doing their part to help save the voter base.

More Pro-Life Killing

Everyone thought that President Bush banned stem-cell research. Nothing is farther from the truth. What the former-president DID do was to ban the use of FEDERAL money from being used.

Now I know that there are some out there who will wonder what is the big deal? Ask someone who is vehemently pro-life, however. I, am not. I am pro-life to be sure. I think abortion is wrong in all cases except the life or death of the mother, but I am not rabidly insane about it.

I AM rabidly insane about my money, however. Why should more of my money be taken so that science can get federal money? Private industry can drive it more efficiently, and only those who WANT to contribute need to. Now, I have no choice.

After today, Glorious Leader will repeal the rules set down by President Bush. Of course, it is ‘all for the people’. After all, we need this research to find cures for all manner of  disease and illness.

Does it matter that we are already some of the most taxed people in the world? Nope. If they now are going to provide money to this area of science, it has to come from somewhere. So, either they are going to cut funds from somewhere (which program will get the axe?) or they are going to have to raise it through taxes.

My gut instinct tells me that they will get the money from the defense cuts. The left will logically say “Well, when we stop spending all of that money in Iraq…” to which I say- the money to Iraq is in addition to normal spending. You say we are spending too much because it is going to liberate a country (I mean, get all that oil revenue) but taking that ADDED spending and making it permanent is ok. Does it still not cause us massive deficits? Not to mention that this repealing will allow aborted babies to be used in the stem cell research.

Yep, Save the trees, save the seals, save the titmouse.. but helpless unborn can be murdered at will.

Oh well. They cannot vote, so why do they matter?

Iowa A Casualty Of Obanomic Cap n Trade

From the Jawa Report:

Cap and Trade appears to have a lot to do with this

NEW YORK, March 5 (Reuters) - Alliant Energy Corp's Interstate Power and Light Co on Thursday said it canceled plans to construct the proposed 649-megawatt Sutherland 4 coal-fired power plant in Iowa.

The Madison, Wisconsin-based company said in a release it canceled the project based on several factors including, the current economic and financial climate, increasing uncertainty regarding regulation of greenhouse gas emissions and the terms placed on the plant by regulators.

Thank the Obama administration for this.

I Am A Conservative Republican

[H/T: AlphonZo Rachel and his YouTube video. It prompted me to write this.]

I believe that life begins at conception and the taking of an innocent life is not a religious issue, it is a moral issue.

I believe in the separation of Church and State, but not the absence of God from the public place.

I believe that America is the land of equal opportunity, but not the land of equal results.

I believe that what is mine is mine, not something to be confiscated and spread around for all to share.

I believe that it is the job of the judicial branch to enforce the constitution, not to legislate a new one.

I believe that we have the capability to provide our own energy quickly, safely and cost effectively. Oversight yes; Industry killing regulation no.

I reject the mentality that the right to bear arms only applies to state militia. It is the people’s path to protecting themselves from a tyrannical government.

I reject that America is a collection of individual cultures. I embrace that America is its OWN culture that should be promoted, vaunted and celebrated.

I reject the notion that government is the end-all means to prosperity. I embrace the idea that free markets work best in driving the economy.

I believe that it is the government’s job to serve and protect the people; to enact policies that enable me to succeed and then get out of my way.

So Much For Will Of The People

So California voted in November. They elected to pass a resolution that banned gay marriage. It is in the California constitution that its people can do so.

Of course, as is with our very own federal government, the constitution is merely a piece of paper to be legislatively or judicially circumvented whenever possible.

Your vote no longer counts in California, so why even bother?

I guess all we need to do is start publishing the names of everyone who supported the anti-prop measures. Stage boycotts. Harass and spit on them. Physically assault them

Maybe then our voices will be heard?

Idiots.

The Real Obanomic Numbers

This post is targeted toward those for whom I originally started this blog. Most of them (us) are nowhere near the Obama target of $250K, so the whole raising of tax stuff does not affect us to any great extent.

I want to add a caveat, though, that when the Bush tax cuts are allowed to lapse in 2011, ALL of us with children will get affected, as the (now) $1000 credit per child (as a single example) will be reduced to pre-cut rates ($800).

So anyway, the top marginal rate is 35%. Pretty high, compared to my meager rate of about 15%. Obama plans to raise this to Clinton-era rates of 39.6% Again, that doesn’t seem like much, right? A meager 4.6%? I mean, a paltry $46 per $1000 made is forked over.

Recall though, that these are not the entire number. Check out the real scoop from a tax expert as reported by Michelle Malkin:

… while it may be true that under Obama the marginal effect is only 2, 4, or 6% (depending on what actually passes from his budget), I think the greater effect is the psychological line that Obama has so clearly drawn in the sand. If the tax rates are adjusted so that someone making 250,000 is taxed at 39.6%, if this person is self-employed, they are looking at a total tax rate of up to 61.4% on each dollar over $250,000. [61.4% = Federal Income Tax (39.6), State Rate (up to 10.3% in California), and self-employment tax rate (roughly 11.5% when you take into account your deduction for ½ of the self-employment tax)].

I am a tax accountant, don’t consider myself to be an idiot, and I am right in Obama’s income target range. I will be joining those looking to limit hours worked so as not to enter that 60% territory. Part of the motivation will be the self satisfaction of not contributing to the socialist cause.

So as he taxes those with high income (which by the way is not very high if you live in New York) and those people decide to stop working. So they cut jobs, cut profit, hurt the economy and then force those who cannot realistically cut enough profit to pay an even higher percentage of the tax. Recall that the top 2% of Americans pay the largest portion of the tax burden- now they will pay even more.

Obama Team Can Only See 4 Months Ahead

Ok, maybe the title is an exaggeration. However, check out the new Obama site.

According to VP Joe Biden, the website NUMBER is http://www.recovery.gov

First, notice the pretty new logo. Michelle Malkin has some more fitting logos, but what I found most interesting is the timeline. With $500 million in campaign funds accumulated and the entire weight of the Federal Government behind them, Obama can only project his porkulus plan out to July 15, 2009? Why can we not see the REAL numbers out to 2019?

What a joke. I could have done something faster and more accurate by myself, given the resources available to him.

Once again we see how inept he is at leading. Get it rammed through. get it NOW NOW NOW. Who cares if it is accurate or professional. We DID something. We have SHOWN the American people we are bold men of action!

Obama Dis’s Number One Ally

So first, when Obama gets into the Oval Office, he sees a statue of Winston Churchill. It was a gift from Britain after 9-11. Does he embrace the legacy of this great man? Does he speak to the honor of all men fighting tyranny during that time? Does he hire someone to dust the great edifice down?

Nope. He sends it back, saying he does not want it in his oval office. (Well, in actuality he had them put it in the US Embassy in Britain.)

Now, when the British prime minister AND HIS WIFE visit for the FIRST TIME, Al-Queada’s favorite American said there would be no traditional press conference and there would be no meeting of the first families.

Great. His first press conference is to an Arab news station and he snubs our number one ally in the world.

Why The Education System Sucks

Look at Detroit and the UAW (United Auto Workers Union). One need look no further to understand why the education system is in such a shambles. They are unions. And unions are killing almost every industry they run.

The NEA (National Education Association) works hard to prevent any reform of education whatsoever. Its lone beating mantra is more money for teachers, more money for teachers, and more money for teachers. Why would they want more teachers?

They will then have more dues paying members, of course.

But let there be real reform. How about merit pay instead of contracted pay? People are so paranoid that the EVIL school boards will rip off the POOR teachers. But under contract, the board is forced to pay a crappy teacher the same as a teacher willing to put in extra effort and who has proven results.

In LA, when most of the schools received failing grades, the local NEA blocked the board’s attempt to institute merit pay for teachers, saying that it would be ‘a cold day in hell’ when they allowed that sort of reform to occur.

When the St. Petersburg Times asked Pinellas Classroom Teachers Association executive director Jade Moore why few teachers were signing up for the merit pay program the union helped design for the school district, Moore replied, “Our goal was to make it nearly impossible.

Imagine that. A union whose sole purpose is to extort dues from its members and block education reform.

Don’t get me wrong. At one time in our history unions played a valuable part. But with modern society, myriad of new laws governing the workplace, the time for unions is over. All they do is strip the employer of any ability to make a profit or function freely. Look at the auto workers who get 95% pay even when laid off. Or the teacher who is so crappy and involved with scandal that he is removed from the classroom- and moved to an office with the school board at the same pay he was getting as a teacher, because the union contract prevented his dismissal.

People are crying out about the budget cuts. What is the answer? Give the schools more federal funding? When does the begging stop? I am all for federal subsidies for education. It is one of the few areas where I am FOR federal money.

But look at D.C. They have a voucher scholarship program that allows kids to go to private schools. D.C, OUR CAPITAL has some of the worst schools in the country. And with his new $410 billion bill, Obama is cutting the program funding and forcing all of those poor kids back into the crappy public schools.

For the children my ass. It is all about keeping people ignorant and uneducated so they won’t have a clue what is really being done to them.

Government Moves To Control Charities

Did you know?

In the latest legislation being pushed through congress, those making over $250K cannot claim as much charitable giving as they once did. In other words, if you normally give a lot to charity, and claim it on your taxes (because it is a good deduction and you get it back, thus helping reduce your tax burden) you will not get as much back as you once did.

Why is that? So the government can get more of your money, of course.

However, administration officials say that it is because the government has written more charitable giving into the legislation, so Americans are not ‘burdened’ with it.

Ah yes. So, like the banks, if you are a charity organization, you can get money from good old Barney Frank.

But at what cost?

Remember, Women Are Property

Of course, we must be tolerant and accepting of their religion, even though there is nothing at all accepting or peace-enabling about theirs.

In fact, in Malaysia the Christians cannot use the word Allah in their publications because ‘there might be confusion’ according to the government.

Yeah. Wouldn’t want THEM to read or understand/tolerate US.

How Dumb Do They Think We Are?

I was listening to the CPAC conference going on today and Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich brought the house down with a dead-on accurate assessment of the current administration.

His mantra for the speech was How Dumb Do They Think We Are?

He began with Obama’s rant against CEO’s and their private jets, when Speaker Pelosi now has her own taxpayer funded private jet.

His biggest score, though, was the fact that Obama swore not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $250K, but the new budget has over $600B in energy taxes, including electricity, heating oil, natural gas and gasoline.

So, unless you don’t use any of those, you are going to get your taxes raised. The fact that it is not ‘income’ tax is irrelevant. If you tax energy, EVERYONE (except the Amish and perhaps some hidden commune in the mountains of northern Idaho) will get hit. And the Carbon Cap and Trade program will help drive the coal industry to its knees.

If CPAC puts out You-Tube videos, I highly recommend watching them. Even my liberal friends should look, because at least see what our side is proposing.

CPSIA – Huh?

Before I get into it, you can read about the new law right here.

Then, see one mom’s really good take on the law.

So. Just what is this new law really? It is one of those knee-jerk reactions to an event that occurred in 2007. As you may recall, China sent us a bunch of lead-laden products.

Lead. Children. Bad.

So, congress jumped right on the solution. Reduce the lead content in products. Force industry to perform testing on their products. Force businesses to either test themselves or get their suppliers to provide certification of testing.

All for the children. Sort of like S-CHiP. No one can say no to a child.

If a business sells a non-conforming product, they get fined $100K. For each item. Wal-Mart beware, if you have 100 non-conforming items on your shelf, you are going to pay dearly.

But it’s for the kids, right?

But. But. If there is a book printed prior to 1985, it might fall under that category. What is that used book store owner going to do?

Why, pay a few hundred dollars per book to get it tested, of course. Or, if they cannot afford it, just toss the book. Just to be on the safe side.

Are you getting the picture? Already, untold millions of dollars worth of product has been tossed ‘to be safe’. Already the first lawsuit is underway, charging a business with non-compliance. Already there are numerous tiny, mom-and-pop businesses reeling from the constraints in the law.

All because congress knows best. All because those whom we elected can jump right on the problem and fix it SHAZAAM!

Sort of like they are fixing our economy. My warm and fuzzy feeling is back.

World Wide Protesting

"Opal must not die, and Opal will not die."

This came from the head of the labor union in Frankfort, where 15,000 GM workers gathered to protest GM saying they planned to cut 46K jobs worldwide. He was speaking about the GM auto made in that part of the world, of course.

"Yes We Can" signs were everywhere... wonder why they said that? A push for Hopey Kenobi to do something for them?

More protests happened in France, Spain, and pretty much everywhere else where the loser company has businesses.

I find it funny that a recent Rasmussen poll has 50% of Michigan people think the company (which lost $84 million a day last year)  needs to be cut loose.

Senate Votes On Fairness Doctrine

For all of you who think that the Obama administration is not going to try and shut down any dissent (i.e. all of talk radio) you have another thing coming.

On the Senate floor, for a vote, are a pair of amendments. One is to ban anything akin to the Fairness Doctrine (Demint – R) and the other an amendment that will push the FCC  to  “take actions to encourage and promote diversity in communication media ownership,” (Durbin – D)

That, dear readers, is the Fairness Doctrine in a nutshell. The US Government forcing radio owners to put on what the government sees as fair broadcasting.

Never mind that every other media outlet- TV, newspaper, magazine, etc – are all liberally biased. Now congress wants to dictate it all.

Divide and conquer as they say. Get rid of talk radio, and you take away the common gathering point of conservatives.

Homeland Security Doesn’t Want Laws Enforced

Ask anyone from Arizona about Napolitano’s record on immigration. The law says if you hire illegal alien workers, you are going to get shut down.

The law says that if you are an illegal alien and get caught, you are going to jail and going to get deported.

Of course, now that she is the Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano has decided that enforcing the laws is not consistent with her or the president’s position on immigration.

Position?

Illegal. Bad. Arrest. Send Home.

Seems simple enough to me. But, then, I am not an open-all-borders freak who thinks that the United States should be a worldwide welfare state.

UPDATE: Edited to keep Jen's head from exploding at my piss-poor grammar. Not that this is any better, but it is better..:)

If you are not beginning to question your choice in voting for Hopey One Kenobi, then my only guess is that either 1) you WANT to be the Socialist States Of Amerika, 2) you could not care less about what he said on the campaign trail, as long as Bush and the evil R-People were booted to the curb, 3) you could not care less about what he said as long as a black man got elected, or 4) you really are as stupid as I think.

I cannot keep up with this moron.

- The guy has more lobbyists in his administration than staffers.

- He randomly picks people to be in his cabinet because he has no clue. He has done nothing but campaign since getting elected to the Illinois senate.

- He just signed an $827 billion spending frenzy (1.2 trillion with interest) which is closer to $3 trillion when you take into account the annual funding required to keep the programs going.

- He decided to use some of TARP II ($275 billion) to buy out those poor unfortunate a$$hats that got in over their head and now claim it is their RIGHT to have a house.

- His House just passed $410 billion more in spending today, which is guaranteed to pass in the Senate.

- Thursday he will unveil his FY2010 budget (which takes effect in October, btw)  which includes $634 billion for healthcare alone.

Over $2 TRILLION dollars in just over 30 days.

Where will it end?

I follow Robert Stacy McCain's blog almost daily (The Other McCain). I rarely comment, because... well.. what he says usually doesn't need to be commented on. I just accept what he says (mostly) at face value, pick what I need from his words of wisdom and move smartly onward.

But today I cannot resist posting a comment to his post. He informs us of something as horrific as anything the liberal media could drum up regarding Bush and his Evil Empire. Why? Why would you try and scare our society like some McCarthy throw back? 

Leave the scare tactics to Obama and his flunkies.

For shame, sir.

The post?

The penultimate sentence is enough to send one packing for the Appalachian Hills.

THIS Is The Problem With America

I don’t claim to be a know-it-all, but I do know where I stand in the economy. Like many others I got myself into debt by running up credit cards instead of saving until I could afford it.

It took me the last 10 years of my Navy career to pay down my debt, but even then I am still left with a pair of cards that have high charges on them (though one was to help pay my son’s dental expenses when the insurance wouldn’t so I will take that every time; the other is just do to greedy wanting on my part).

However, when I bought my house, I knew what I wanted. I wanted a payment I could afford, and one that would not significantly change over time. In other words, I wanted a fixed rate mortgage. If I lose my job, I won’t have much time to get another one before my house goes into default.

Am I crying to my government? No. If I go into foreclosure, will I cry to the government? No. I have family. I have places I can go. I will never need Nanny Samantha to take care of me.

Not so in other parts of the country. Just check out this CNN bleeding heart report on how these ‘poor’ folks got screwed by the mortgage people because the mortgage people made it too easy to get that $800,000 home. (glad I stayed at my paltry $160K range!)

What  great thing to teach the kids. Take whatever handout is given then cry foul when things don’t go your way. This lady says Obama needs to stop all foreclosures. Great idea. Better yet, first come, first serve and all homes are free!

Idiots. This is your country in a nutshell. Are you just going to sit there?

Step One: Nationalize Banks

Did anyone really think that this was not going to happen? First Citigroup, then… who knows? One by one, it is all coming together for the socialist administration in power.

The banking giant is in talks with the government which may result in the government controlling upwards of 40%. I cannot wait to see what Pelosi and Reid do when they get their hands on all of that money.

This isn’t all that is going on either, Clinton in China, Obama with this budget commission. Change is in the air. Stay tuned for more as I get the word as to who is doing what.

Here Is Our Real Hope

Just when you think that our children are lost to an ever-deteriorating moral compass, there is something like this that comes along to give you true hope.

More Proof Of DEMOCRATS Being Racist

A couple of days ago, a large monkey brutally savaged a 55 year old friend of its owner. The police wound up shooting the ape. A tragedy, yes, but an avoidable one. I won’t detail it here, but the old woman owner (in her 70’s) should never have been allowed to keep the chimp.

A cartoonist for the NY Post drew up the scene of two police officers, guns out, standing over the dead chimp. No big deal, right?

The caption read: “They’ll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill.”

Now, for me, the intent was clear; The cartoonist likened the crazed ape to a crazed congress that put together an abortion of a legislative package and rammed it through congress despite an outpouring of public dissent.

But, of course, our famous Democrat race-baiters came out in force. Led by Al Sharpton, they protested and picketed the paper and its advertisers, thus extorting an apology from the paper.

Why is it that the only ones crying race are the Democrats? I, for one, have yet to see any conservatives doing the same. I guess that the only ones who see race in EVERYTHING are those who are racist.

Democrats Are All Raaaaaaaaacist

Don’t like it when i say that? Too bad.

Democrats are racist. They started the KKK. They tried to prevent the Civil Rights Act. They put all ethnicities into their individual groups and then tell them how they are victims.

White men are the trouble. White men are stopping you from getting what you want in life.

Even the senior Democrat representatives are starting to spit the same hate. A few Conservative governors say that they do not want the money. They do not believe it is a good thing and that it will actually hurt the economy.

Nothing like being able to voice your opinion, right? In doing so, Mark Sanford, Bobby Jindahl and others are now being accused of not liking blacks.

Yep. THAT is why I don’t want to partake of the destruction of our society. It is all because of the blacks.

In the words of my Company Commander in boot camp, “Shut the f**k up.” When there is a White History Month, come and get me to discuss racism. Until then, look around. it is not conservatives spitting the hate, it is the liberals and their brain washed minority brethren.

Pope Smacks Pelosi

Ok. Not physically, but read what was said.

Thanks to the Gateway Pundit for this. I like it. I think the words should not have been politicized. Tell her just what you think, pontiff, because there are a lot of ‘Catholics’ I know who look the other way on the aborting of children. (Else there would have been 0% Catholic support for Hope n Change.)

It should be at the top of our list (and I am not really a practicing Catholic, but hold the church’s beliefs close).

ACORN Calls For Civil Disobedience

So I guess if it worked in the 60’s and 70’s, it will work here. The problem is, however, in the 60’s people were civically disobedient to correct a major tragedy- civil rights for blacks. They were also civically disobedient towards the Vietnam war. They exercised their right, as is put forth by our constitution.

Now, however, the voter-fraud leaders of the pack (ACORN) say this:

“On Feb. 19, ACORN members will launch a new tactic in fighting foreclosures: civil disobedience. Participants in the ACORN Home Savers campaign nationwide will simply refuse to move out of foreclosed homes, or in some cases, will move back in. ACORN homesteaders intend to squat in their homes until a comprehensive, federal solution for people facing foreclosure is put in place.” [HatTip: Michelle Malkin]

So, basically, because some people got themselves in over their head, or they fell on hard times and got evicted from their homes, it is the governments responsibility to save them?

Why do we bother?

Damn it, I cannot pay for my groceries, so I am going to stage a sit-in at the local Winn-Dixie until they give me food for my family.

Idiots.

Terrorist Training Camps On U.S. Soil?

As reported on 2/16/2009, FoxNews (via Sean Hannity)  reported on roughly 35 para-military training facilities located throughout the United States.

Their ‘sheikh’ hails from their parent group in Pakistan. Watch the segment and tell me that our country is not headed for a major incident; if not between liberals and conservatives, then between foreign nationals and red-blooded hillbillies.

A Recap Of The First Few Weeks

I wanted to take a second to recap just what the Obama administration has done during the first few weeks in office. This is, of course, beyond the Porkulus Bill that was passed Friday.

  • His first call to any head of state as president was to Mahmoud Abbas, leader of Fatah party in the Palestinian territory. 
  • His first one-on-one interview with any news organization was with Al Arabia television. 
  • He ordered Guantanamo Bay closed and all military trials of detainees halted. 
  • He ordered all overseas CIA interrogation centers closed. 
  • He withdrew all charges against the masterminds behind the USS Cole and 9/11.  (of course, charges can always be pressed again, though it would be within civilian courts, more than likely.)
  • He  signed an order to release $20.3 million to help migrate thousands of Palestinian refuges to move to and live in the US at American taxpayer expense.  (‘cuz we are friendly like that, and are worried about our Arab brethren who are being persecuted by the evil Israel.)

Not that I am worried, of course. It is, after all, just Obama trying to get settled in and working to get the world to ‘approve’ of us again…

The Die Is Cast

It has come to pass. After all that has been said to the negative; after all the calls, faxes, emails, etc that have flooded Washington, D.C.; after all of the public outrage regarding this massively heinous Bill Of Socialism, the House passed it 246-183 and the Senate will pass it as soon as the last Senator returns from his mother’s funeral. He is a Democrat, so we know the outcome there.

I want to thank all of the GOP in the House. They all voted NO. I want to thank the 7 Democrats who voted NO. I don’t care why (one said there was too much tax cut and not enough school and social program money, which scares me, but I will take it).

With this upon us, I believe we are very much screwed. Why?

NOT ONE SENATOR OR CONGRESSMAN READ THE BILL before voting. The House voted unanimously to have the bill on the internet for 48 hours before voting. Nancy Pelosi had a date in Rome, Italy so they had to forget that. Obama promised to have all EMERGENCY legislation out on the internet for a full 5 days before he signed them. He has forgotten that and will sign it on Monday.

If you get a chance to read it, do so, Look at the reports coming out and read the words for yourself. Nationalized health care, earmarks put in under the cover of dark, forcing governors to accept money even if they do not want it, money for people who don’t even pay taxes, extra money for Social Security recipients (to the tune of $250- wow $4.80 per week for the year… nice).

I know to many it seems like we are just screaming in frustration that Obama won. I would agree that many are. But what is driving me is deeper than that.

I guess I was born in the wrong era. I want everyone to be proud of their country. I want everyone to stare down the enemy and send them packing. I want people to rise up, like the days of the revolution and demand their freedom from government meddling and interference.

But too many do not care. None of them, I am sure, come to read my barely-visible blog in the ocean of other writings. If they do, they never leave comment anyway, so I apparently do not touch them. But it burns inside that there is so much apathy in our country.

How can people be so delusional as to think that this legislation is a good thing? Regardless of who you voted for, the fact is that this bill was crammed through and NO ONE got a chance to read it.

I don’t come out and say it, but the truth needs to be said. If you voted for Obama and his trumped up siren call of HopenChange, you are an idiot. You have been blinded by either pure idolatry or pure hatred of Bush. You obviously care more about what he says than what he has actually done in his past. There can be no other explanation. 

God help us all, and I truly hope I (and all of the other thousands of experts who have been warning about this) are wrong in their assessment.

‘Stimulus’ Bypasses State Regulations

So the governor of a state, much like the president, has control of the state’s budget. The congress submits and he approves or disapproves.

Well, until now, that is. Buried in the ‘stimulus’ is a provision that says a governor cannot stop the state from taking the stimulus money if the congress says they want it.

In other words, the governor cannot veto it.

Now why would they say this? Because one governor has the balls to stand up and say his state will refuse any money from the government.

Nice to know that states are still sovereign. Remember when we used to be a REPUBLIC? States did not have to follow the government if they did not want?

Cue broken record voice.

Thanks to all of those who voted for HopenChange. You are about to get it big time.

Actual Cost Of The Generational Theft Act

As I go on like a broken record, those Democrats and Independents who wanted HopenChange are going to get it big time.

Check out the Heritage Foundation’s estimate of the final cost of this monstrosity after 10 years. I am not even going to put the number here because it hurts enough just looking at it.

In unrelated news, some are reporting that The Wicked Witch of the West (Pelosi D-CA) has said that the only way congressmen will be allowed to get a full copy of the bill (as opposed to the ‘summary’ she provided them) was to swear an oath that they would vote ‘yes’ to the bill…

…so.. you have to promise to vote yes before you get to actually read the additional 700 pages she and Reid added?? Interesting development in the Pelosi era. She has already changed House rules to prevent the minority power from submitting alternatives to proposed legislation. This step is just one in a long line of more to come, thus ensuring a bastion of immovable Democrat control.

Thanks to all of those out there who could not see the true intent of this administration for the hatred of ‘evil’ George. Many of you are my friends, but you have been totally fooled by these corrupt-o-crats.

Unite Or Die

Our Founding Fathers had it right. We either get together with one another and stand against the tide or fall by the wayside.

You speak out online, but are you active in your neighborhood? Do you call your congressmen and senators? Do you engage others in debate?

We have become a nation of complacent do-nothings who look at others and nod in agreement, but do little to get out and become active in effecting change. Do you want to lose your country or do you want to be on the frontlines?

Yes, it is scary. People, by nature, avoid difficult confrontation. But, I cannot see any other way. Get involved. Make the call. Join local groups. Activism is the only way.

Failing that, gird your loins and draw close your guns.

God Bless The Children

Thanks to R.S. McCain for posting this.

In particular, watch the anti-abortion essay (in video) by a very eloquent young lady. I am pretty much against children stepping out into the political arena. More times than not they are being exploited by someone behind the scene, and I was conflicted on posting the link here, but I was impressed by her.

New Federal Committee Will Decide Healthcare

I know. That sounds totally Orwellian, doesn’t it? Why in the world would anyone want to create a governing body that decides if you can get treatment or not? Or, better yet, if the treatment cannot cure you and will only prolong the inevitable, you can be cut off.

Totally sick, yes? Yeah. I agree.

For those who voted for Obama, thanks. The very language mentioned above is part of the now-passed stimulus package.

For Once, The Truth!

Obama promised that this ‘stimulus’ was just the first step. Boy was he RIGHT ON TARGET!

Today, Tim “The Tax Cheat” Geithner spoke of the NEW AND IMPROVED plan to save the banks and all Americans who are losing their homes.

$1.5 TRILLION dollars are to be used. This would be a ‘partnership’ between the government and investors.

For those who did not know, we just did this with Bank of America. The government told the CEO that it was ‘patriotic’ and would be ‘good for the country’ if they bought the troubled assets. The problem is that the assets were worse off than the bank was told and they lost billions- to the brink of bankruptcy.

Yeah. Great idea. The market is letting them know what they think already.

Like I have already said. I am hopeful that all of those who used to be Democrats (now the Socialist Enabler Party) and voted for this guy are the first ones to feel the effects of massive government intervention in the markets.

Per the Congressional Budget Office, there will be a small bit of improvement in the near term, but a much worse economy in the end.

What will they say then? They need to do MORE?

You Betcha!

The revolution is at hand. Will you be a leader or a follower?

Most Open And Transparent? Hardly.

For those not following the news, there is yet another Obama bait and switch going on. It is being overshadowed by the bail-a-mania but bears a very close looking into.

Obama has promised Hope-n-Change. He has promised bipartisanship. He has promised openness and transparency.

Why is it, then, that he waits until 3:30 PM on a Friday, a day that historically an administration would do something it wanted buried in the news over the weekend, to sign a directive moving control of the census from the Commerce Department to the White House? Rahm Emanuel, the most partisan of all of the Democrats in Washington, D.C. will be in charge?

I guess that we get what we vote for… oh wait.. I didn’t vote for the government to take control of my life. If you did, this is all on you.

If you are not sure why it even matters, you should not have voted. He who controls the counting, controls the government.

Iran Opens Arms To Welcome U.S. To Table

Oh. My. God.

Check out what Iranian president dictator Achma-get-a-job said:

The hard-line Iranian leader said terrorism, the elimination of nuclear weapons, restructuring the U.N. Security Council and fighting drug trafficking could be topics for the two sides to talk about.

"If you really want to fight terrorism, come and cooperate with the Iranian nation, which is the biggest victim of terrorism so that terrorism is eliminated. ... If you want to confront nuclear weapons ... you need to stand beside Iran so it can introduce a correct path to you," he said.

Last night, Obama said that America was looking for openings to talk with Iran. Now Ahmadinejad says his country is willing.

Great. We are going to jump high to please them right? So we can become one with the world, right? Biggest victim? Like their funneling of money and arms to Hezbollah and Hamas? Like their smuggling of Iranian troops into Iraq to help create more chaos for the American effort?

Give me a break. One more reason to not trust this Corrupt-o-crat.

When Presidents Lie

So.

Obama made it to TV to express how bipartisan this stimulus fiasco is. Yep. All 3 RINOS who voted for it must speak for the entire Senate GOP.

The ZERO House Republicans and ELEVEN House Democrats who voted against it showed more bipartisanship. The fact that we are even calling this crock of stuff remotely bipartisan goes a lot to saying how nice we are trying to be.

The fact is, this bill will kill our economy. More than one economist says it will, and the CBO has the numbers to prove how it will tank us even further. Obama even says those SCIENTISTS who proved that FDR’s spending in the New Deal actually prolonged the depression are wrong. (He, the apparent ultimate economist, is right??) A one-year minimal growth followed by a collapse even further than we are now.

But through it all, we had not heard Obama lie about the bill. He tells it as he thinks it should be. But to stand in front of the cameras tonight and blatantly LIE about there being “Not a single earmark” floored me.

The so called ‘trimmed down’ Senate bill is, actually, $19 billion more than the House. See how that works? Y0u inflate it so you can then cut it and claim you were helping the folks.

This bill is nothing but one BIG earmark. The only reason they got three RINO votes is because the two from Maine are just trying to get a share of the haul for their state- country be damned. And Specter is just an idiot who cannot leave his former Democrat ways.

So the vote will come soon. The cloture vote passed 61-36 with two non-votes. (Cloture means no more amendment submissions, I believe). This means that in the next day or so the Senate will vote on it and send it to House-Senate committee for final drafting.

I’m scared. Really scared. I was just getting used to the USA as she is. Now I’ll have to read up on France and Germany to figure out how things are going to start working.

Stop Paying. Your House Will Then Get Paid

While not exactly true, the title does give a great indication of one provision in the forthcoming Generational Theft Act of 2009. What do I mean? Right from the text, found here:

SEC. 7001. MANDATORY LOAN MODIFICATIONS.

Section 109(a) of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (12 U.S.C. 5219) is amended—
(1) by striking the last sentence;
(2) by striking ‘‘To the extent’’ and inserting
the following:

‘‘(1) IN GENERAL.—To the extent’’; and
(3) by adding at the end the following:

‘‘(2) LOAN MODIFICATIONS REQUIRED.—
‘‘(A) IN GENERAL.—In addition to actions required under paragraph (1), the Secretary shall, not later than 15 days after the date of enactment of this paragraph, develop and implement a plan to facilitate loan modifications to prevent avoidable mortgage loan foreclosures.

‘‘(B) FUNDING.—Of amounts made available under section 115 and not otherwise obligated, not less than $50,000,000,000, shall be made available to the Secretary for purposes of carrying out the mortgage loan modification plan required to be developed and implemented under this paragraph.

‘‘(C) CRITERIA.—The loan modification plan required by this paragraph may incorporate the use of—
768

‘‘(i) loan guarantees and credit enhancements;
‘‘(ii) the reduction of loan principal amounts and interest rates;
‘‘(iii) extension of mortgage loan
terms; and
‘‘(iv) any other similar mechanisms or combinations thereof, as determined appropriate by the Secretary.

So, what is being said is, if you are in deep kimshee with your mortgage, never fear. There will be $50 billion (in addition to the $20 billion asked for by the House) available for banks to renegotiate your loan to a better price.

“Your home has lost half of its value?  No problem, Mr. Smith, we here at Gov Loans, Inc. can just appraise your new home value and get you a loan based on that. No worries!”

“What is that? You never miss a payment? You have always been on time with all of your bills? I am sorry, Mr. Jones. It seems that there are no programs to help you out. You just will have to live with the fact that you owe more than your home is currently worth.”

“What is that, Mr. Illegal? Why of course! Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has blocked any chance at having to prove you are a legal citizen. You are fully eligible for money too!”

From the Declaration of Independence:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

Not that I am proposing an outright revolution, but the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s may have a new purpose: A Modern Day Boston Tea Party; No Taxation Without Representation.

If we call and scream and badger our representatives and they vote against us anyway, it is our duty to remove them from office, by any means required.

Obama Decision Kills Potential Jobs

Hope and Change. Yes sir, Hope and Change.

For all of his bloviating about NEEDING to get this scam of a stimulus bill passed in order to ‘save or create 4,000,000 jobs’, Obama’s latest executive order is one for the record books.

Because of his decision, there are now some 25,000 non-union companies will be banned from bidding on large-scale (i.e. over $25 million) government contracts. I wonder how many of those potential jobs will be contained in the Porkulus Bill?

I guess saving jobs is only good if it means you are a union supporter of his.

Yankee Oppressor

The following is in response to the word that some turncoat RINO’s have helped the Democrats increase the pork-laden ‘stimulus’ bill to $1.75 TRILLION dollars. It is most sure to pass. We are so effing screwed, folks:

On February 6th, 2009 at 7:38 pm, Yankee Oppressor said:

I REJECT your attempts to force collectivism on the American people.
I REJECT the contempt in which you hold the American taxpayer.
I REJECT the notion that “I am responsible to the Federal Government” for an ever growing portion of the fruits of MY LABOR to be squandered on pet projects or given outright to those that have not EARNED it. I am a free man. YOU can make no claim on my labor or insist that I do my part by shouldering more and more of the load. The very idea of “trickle up” economics is absurd.
I REJECT your call for more sacrifice and service to this nation. I have worn the uniform of this nation for over 25 years and I have freely given my sweat and my blood to protect it. I have done enough. How many brothers have YOU buried? What were their names? What have YOU sacrificed? What have your children done without? What have you done except corrupt everything that you have laid your hands on?
I REJECT YOU for your belief that the Constitution of my country is a “living breathing document’.
I REJECT YOU for wrapping your liberal agenda in the flag that I love and then claim to be patriotic.
I REJECT YOU for your belief that the States are subordinate to the Federal Government and that the Constitution is an imperfect document. The sovereign states created the federal government not a national one. The central government only exists at the pleasure of the states. To do otherwise is illegal, immoral, and unconstitutional.
I REJECT YOU because you have destroyed the education system of this nation and you have bankrupted Social Security and mismanaged Medicare. You can not even run a cafeteria.
I REJECT YOU because you have ensured that you are not subject to the laws and systems you lay down for the “common” people.
I REJECT YOU because you cling to a failed ideology. Central Planning has FAILED everywhere it has been tried. Why would the outcome be an different here?
I REJECT YOU for your belief in anthropogenic global warming and for your plans to further cripple the most powerful economy on this planet with draconian measures designed to appease or enrich a select few.
I REJECT YOU for insisting that the United States continues to buy oil from people who wish to do us harm, ignoring the fact that we could safely drill or process oil shale here and be independent. Our entire economy revolves around affordable petroleum. New technology can not be created out of thin air.
I REJECT YOU because you believe in rights without responsibilities…certainly, an individual can and should be able to make decisions and have to FACE THE REPERCUSSIONS OF THOSE DECISIONS without affecting the rights of another.
I PROMISE that you will be held accountable for the innumerable crimes you have knowing committed against your constituents, this country and mankind at large.
I PROMISE to keep my solemn and sacred oath “to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies foreign and domestic” which absolutely, unequivocally includes YOU!
I GUARANTEE you that the moment you begin your blatant and overt attack on the Second Amendment that millions of REAL Americans will institute organized and effective civil disobedience so that unless you plan to murder millions of this country’s citizens you will have no choice, but to cease and desist from such action OR accept the inevitable REVOLUTION which you would precipitate with your patently illegal and unconstitutional attack.
Tax cheats as Cabinet appointments. “New, tough” ethics rules waived on a whim. Diplomatic messages of weakness and cowering sent to our enemies. Oh, and a Democrat-owned porkulus political payoff package that will do nothing to stimulate anything except for the Democrat Party that costs more than the entire Iraq war.
I agree with the Heritage foundation when they state “It should not be government policy to spend massive amounts of taxpayer money to subsidize those who don’t need subsidies, provide homes for those who cannot afford to keep them, and in the process destroy the private mortgage finance system. Trying to short-circuit the market’s resolution of the current housing situation will be both expensive and unlikely to succeed.”
You have had quite a start to your administration. You’ve managed to raise the white flag to our enemies, bankrupt the next two generations of Americans, not stimulate the economy, and violate your own ethics rules. Oh, and you also walked into a window.
HOPE! CHANGE!

Keynesian Economics Explained

If you don’t know what Keynesian Economics is, let me break it down. Back in the 1930’s there was an economist who said that the reason we had a depression was that we did not spend ENOUGH.

This goes contrary to modern economists who say that FDR’s New Deal actually deepened and lengthened the Great Depression.

Of course, because Republicans were in power, and because the economy turned south, the current administration says that we cannot follow the old rules. We must be bold. We must spend MEGA money regardless of the short term deficit. In short, we must be Keynesian.

There is no talk, of course, about the notion that the liberals in congress strong-armed lenders into giving loans to very risky people. As a result, they inflated the housing market to the extreme and it all cam crashing down.

I want you to go watch this video, posted by our friends at the Jawa Report. It says it all, with regards to explaining Keynesian ideas and what is about to happen if we don’t put pressure on congress to stop this idiotic spending bill.

(WARNING: There three parts, each is long, and it includes the commercials… D’OH!)

God help us.

One More Step To Killing God

There was an amendment in the Stimupolooza Bill today that said simply- remove the paragraph that says if any institution receives these funds, they cannot have any kind of religious activity where the funds were used.

The amendment was rejected by a vote of  43 – 54.

No big deal? Separation of Church and State? (Which is a LIE, because nowhere does it say that.) Think again.

If a school gets federal dollars to repair their aging buildings, then students could not gather in those buildings to have a bible meeting. Automatically, churches are banned from getting funding. ANY INSTITUTION GETTING MONEY IS PROHIBITED FROM ANY FORM OF RELIGIOUS GATHERING.

The Supreme Court has already ruled that mere prayer is a religious gathering. So I guess Congress cannot use the funds to provide upkeep on the capitol building? That or banish the opening prayer?

These secular fascists are beginning to get under my skin.

S-CHIP Deux- The Road To Universal Care

I cannot stand being made to pay for people’s health care when they should be perfectly capable of paying for it themselves. As I explained in an earlier post, the new S-CHIP program allows people up to age 30 (some child!) and in families making around $85K (some poor!) to get federally funded care.

Today, Obama rescinded an order from President Bush. The order used to say that a state could not give free care to a child (of a family) making more than the allotted salary unless at least 95% of the poor were getting the care.

Is it hard to judge 95%? Yes, I will agree. But now, it does not matter if the poor get care. All that matters is that anyone who wants free care can now get it, all at our expense.

Of course, groups like AMERIGROUP are loving it. They now get federally guaranteed money.

This administration is completely oblivious to reality. We cannot afford to continue to pay for everyone and everything. It cannot be sustained. I wish you all well, because the storm is brewing.

Parental Rights Are On The Chopping Block

Don’t think that the majority of liberals in Congress are a big deal? What if international law told you that you were no longer able to home school your child? What if you were not allowed to determine what religion your child worshipped?

You don’t think it can happen? Think again, because it already is.

Check out the treaty our beloved United Nations tried to get the USA to sign off on back in 1995.

Be sure and give thanks to the CONSERVATIVE movement that stopped it from being ratified after Madeline Albright, our U.S . ambassador to the UN, signed the thing.

Keep your eyes peeled. It is stuff like this that scares the hell out of me.

Going Through ‘The Change’

I could not articulate my frustration any better than Glenn Beck does. Check out his video from last night’s show.

S-CHiP Passes, Quit Smoking Now

Well, the administration got its first true legislation passed today, by a vote of 290-135-8. What this bill does is expand the health coverage to some 4 million children who might not otherwise have it.

Not a bad thing, yes?

Unless one considers the fact that the bill opens up the eligible to a higher income bracket, meaning that those targeted are NOT the poor as claimed, but to those who might otherwise afford their own care.  Check out this summary to see where someone making 300% of the poverty level can now qualify for free care. (in context, poverty for my family is about 29K. So, I would be eligible up to 87K- yes, I am eligible and yes, I can easily afford my own). And, it isn’t just children who are eligible under this version, but adults as well.

Of course, the key to all of this is that there will now be a 61 cent tax on all tobacco products in order to fund this; a fact that as stated here previously means the poor will now have to pay the larger portion because the poor have the highest percentage of smokers.

This is how it is going to be, folks., We The People will be forced to pay it all. Of course, many are happy with that. Especially your congressmen and senators because they get full coverage even after leaving office- all on the taxpayer dime.

Keep the Vaseline close; it is going to be a long, hard, deep road.

The Fountain Of Stupid

I found this comment on Allahpundit’s blog. It fits SO perfectly with the given topic. The commenter, Ellen, said the following:

I used to think that Patricia Schroeder was the stupidest woman in congress, then came Barbara Boxer. Now comes Pelosi. I have found the fountain of stupid.

Ellen on February 4, 2009 at 10:34 AM

Why would we be saying this you ask? Because of what Nancy Pelosi says in the below video:

Based on 500 million people per month, this means that every single man, woman and child in the USA will lose their jobs at a rate of nearly twice per month. Children beware! No more lemonade stands. No more lawn mowing. All is lost.

I would add that before this, Pelosi used the same number on a FOX News interview and was corrected. Why are our leaders such idiots?
