Children Forced To Say Pledge To Image Of Obama

No. You did not read the title incorrectly. And no, it was not meant as a tricky way to get you to read this blog.

Just read here for yourself. Or maybe you can read it here.

And if you do not believe those blogs, read about it here, too. You can also find it on Lou Dobbs Radio site as well.

And they say REPUBLICANS are the whack jobs. get a grip on reality. The man is an empty-suit pandering to anyone and everyone, saying whatever needed to get people to like him.

It is going to be a long four years.

A Tale Of Two Barneys

So there was this guy. Bernard "Barney" Rubble. Barney lived in the fictional prehistoric city of Bedrock, a world where dinosaurs coexisted with barefoot cavemen and the cavemen enjoyed "primitive" versions of modern conveniences such as telephones, automobiles and washing machines.

Barney's interests included bowling, playing pool, poker, tinkering around in best pal Fred's garage and playing golf. He, like Fred, was also a member of the Loyal Order of Water Buffalos lodge and its predecessor, the Loyal Order of Dinosaurs. He is also a talented pianist and drummer.

Barney was a swell guy. The problem was, that Barney and Fred, were always trying to get the quick score. They did a lot of dumb things in an effort to do the right thing. I found it to be sort of a comic tragedy, without the death and destruction…

...well, in truth, there could sometimes be a LOT of destruction.

Which brings us to the descendent of this blockheaded character, Barney Frank. The similarities are striking, and not just in the portliness of their posteriors. No, the bloodline runs much deeper than that. Mr. Frank obviously lost his ancestral knack for trying to do good but making a mess of things. No, our new Mr. Rubble has decided that it is much easier to just destroy things overtly; no covering of true intentions required..

It isn’t about race, remember? All persons created equal, inalienable rights, one the basis of merit, not skin, etc etc etc. I am pretty sure that you have heard the beating of the leftward leaning drums on this. After all, is it not by merit that Glorious Leader now holds sway over our Executive Branch?

So here is our modern-day barney, touting the need for $12 million TAX DOLLARS be allocated to a failing Massachusetts bank. A bank that does not even qualify under the current TARP legislation.

Why would he need that, you ask? The bank is the sole provider of banking in the town? Perhaps they hold liens on some properties and are the only ones qualified on the planet to manage those loans? They were, perhaps, robbed of all of their currency and need a bridge until they can make it up?


Barney Frank says that “…the only minority owned bank in Massachusetts and it would be a shame to see them fail.”

Yep. A bank, which by the way has had all sorts of FDIC issues as pointed out on fousesquawk, that for no other reason than being owned by a minority, needs our tax dollars to keep them in their Porches and multi-million dollar CALIFORNIA homes.

C’mon, Barney. Go back to Bedrock where dinosaurs belong.

The Stimulus Idea Explained

I got this from a co-worker, who in turn got it from his girlfriend. I’m not sure of the originator, and it is actually based on LAST YEAR’S plan, but thanks for it!

Sometime this year, taxpayers will receive an Economic Stimulus Payment. This is a very exciting new program that I will explain using the Q and A format:

Q. What is an Economic Stimulus Payment?
A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

Q. Where will the government get this money?
A. From taxpayers. (EagleEye: True for THIS plan too)

Q. So the government is giving me back my own money?
A. No, they are borrowing it from China.  Your children are expected to repay the Chinese. (EagleEye: True for THIS plan too)

Q. What is the purpose of this payment?
A. The plan is that you will use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.

Q. But isn't that stimulating the economy of China?
A.  Shut up.

Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the US economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:

-If you spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China.

-If you spend it on gasoline it will go to Hugo Chavez, the Arabs and Al Queda

-If you purchase a computer it will go to Taiwan.

-If you purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala (unless you buy organic).

-If you buy a car it will go to Japan and Korea.

-If you purchase prescription drugs it will go to India

-If you purchase heroin it will go to the Taliban in Afghanistan

-If you give it to a charitable cause, it will go to Nigeria.

And none of it will help the American economy. (EagleEye: True for most of THIS plan, too.)

We need to keep that money here in America. You can keep the money in America by spending it at yard sales, going to a baseball game, or spend it on prostitutes, beer (domestic ONLY), or  tattoos, since those are the only businesses still in the US.

Even More Cool SCHIPpiness!

If you didn’t read my blog about the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), please read it. But now it has gotten even better!

Check this out.

Now, you don’t even need an ID to get coverage. All you need is a Social Security Number! And of course, all of those here illegally will be honest and upright when it comes to getting their free health care at our expense, right?


Heck. You don’t even need to be illegal, All you need is an SSN. So go look one up. Genealogy sites abound, so I am sure that you can find one easily enough.

But all is not lost. If you are aged and on Medicare, do as another person suggested- dye your hair and say that you are under thirty. All you need is a valid SSN and you, too, can get free medical care.

Fore everyone who keeps voting these ‘save the entire world’ liberals into office, I would like to sincerely thank you for bankrupting our country 10 times faster than your hated President Bush could ever have dreamed of.

SCHIP On its way! Hurray! Finally change we can believe in!

State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) is a program designed to get low income families health coverage for their children. How low of an income? President Bush wanted it to be a truly working class poor. Even below three times the poverty level was too high for Bush.

See here for current poverty levels, but roughly for a family of four it is below $22,000 annually. So basically President Bush said if you made $66,000 annually you should not be on this program. I am around that and I am doing fine, so I can agree with the veto of the original bill.

Well, now that we have The Wicked Witch Of  The West and the Cowardly Lion running the show, the bill has been resubmitted. This time, there are no limits on salary.

From the Washington post:

The new expansion, which is vengeance for Bush’s veto, is mission gallop: It will make it much easier for some states to extend SCHIP eligibility to children from families earning up to $84,800. Furthermore, to make “poor” an extremely elastic concept, generous “income disregards” are allowed. Families can, depending on their state’s policies, subtract from their income calculation what they spend on rent or mortgage or heating or food or transportation or some combination of these. So children in some families with incomes well over $100,000 will be eligible.

Grace-Marie Turner, a student of health-care policies, says this SCHIP expansion is sensible — if your goal is quickly to get as many people on public coverage as possible and to have children grow up thinking that it is normal for them to get their health insurance from the government. That is the goal.

What a fantastic plan! Why was this not done sooner? Allowing me to exercise my patriotic duty by funding health care for people making twice as much as I do! I love it! What a country.

I think I am going to revisit Mad Max and The Road Warrior. I consider them as training films for what is to come.

The Obama-Limbaugh Bipartisan Stimulus Plan

I like it. Obama told the Republican leadership that they needed to stop listening to Rush Limbaugh; that was not how things got done in Washington.  Yes, this was the same meeting where he told them ‘I Won’ and thus ushered in that era of bipartisan support he has been touting.

I don’t listen to Rush. I did a few times back in the early 1990’s, when I was hanging around a friend of mine who was a big Rush supporter, but other than the occasional Rush comment found online, I never listen.

I don’t think, however, that Obama has ANY right to tell ANYONE who they can or cannot listen to. This is just another glimpse into his narcissistic mentality.

‘I won’ translates into ‘Get in line. I am popular. People love me. I am the American Dream. Do what I say or get out of my way.’

That is exactly what Rush and company are saying about this so-called bipartisanship talk. It means, if you are not with the democrats, you are obviously a partisan dissenter. If you are on board with their agenda, then you are being bipartisan because you caved on your values to come to their side.

So I listened to Rush for the first time today, because I wanted to hear his reply to Obama’s ludicrous comment. He came up with a truly bipartisan stimulus that I thought was cool, albeit a bit contrived.

53% of America voted Obama, and 46% voted McCain. 1% voted others. So to be fair, we will give that extra 1% to Obama. Of the 825 billion stimulus, let us give 54% to Obama to spend as he sees fit, and give 46% to Rush to spend as he sees fit.

Rush touts capital gains cuts and corporate tax rate cuts across the board. This would make up the largest portion of his half. He figures Obama to spend his portion on those infrastructure, schools, IT, bridge projects, etc. We could then measure the effectiveness of each plan.

Of course, nothing like that will ever happen. The Democrats have too much at stake. Obama said that if they do nothing, the Democrats might lose seats in 2010 and he might lose in 2012.


He has been in office just one week and already he is planning for his next election!! The guy is already far beyond what I was worried about. He truly thinks he is the Messiah come to liberate his people.

Rachel Maddow Is An Idiot

It is like watching a horrifying accident in progress. You know it is wrong to watch. You know you should look away out respect for those about to die.  But, the scene is just too unbelievable not too watch. Surely there must be some magical TV stuff working in the background to make it look worse than it actually is.

In this case, however, it was all of a train wreck and more. I never watch MSNBC. I am particularly repulsed by Keith Slobberman, but I was flipping through the channels and came across Rachael Maddow talking about Obama. She was being critical!

But, she was being critical for the wrong reason. You see, most economists (her words) tell Rachael that we need to pump this massive amount of money into our infrastructure. We must make jobs to build bridges and patch roads and fix schools and update broadband and make jobs (which taxpayers will then be on the hook for supporting evermore). We cannot afford the 'failed economic policies' of the past (I mean tax cuts- those evil things introduced by Satan Bush II).

Why was Ms. Maddow upset? Obama met with bipartisan leaders regarding the proposed stimulus. The House Republicans expressed concern over the size of the bill. To them it is just  huge chunk of pork, waiting to be spent in a haphazard and ill-advised manner by a congress rushing our economy headlong over a cliff. Obama looked at them and said, point blank, "I won."

"I won."

So much for bringing all sides together. However, Mrs. Maddow was upset that even though Obama stuck it to the minority House (which she gloated over) the proposed bill still had an abundance of  tax cuts. Tax cuts that will get money into the economy much faster than trying to spend our way out. Faster than the estimated 10 years it will take for all of the proposed funding to be spent. Only about 10% of the money would even be spent in the first year. By that time, economists project that we will be long out of our recession.

But, since tax cuts are associated with former President Bush they must be bad. What kills me the most about her insane ramblings is that these tax cuts are all targeted at small business and middle class families. Are these not the same people Obama said he was going to help? Are these not the same tax cut proposals main stream media outlets went wild over during the campaign season?

It is no wonder that MSNBC was 27th in the ratings. With idiots like Slobberman and Maddow, I don't see them getting much better.

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

Obama Fails First Casual Press Meeting

One thing that Obama promised was Change. Transparency. No more business as usual. To that end, he issued a policy that says no one who has been a lobbyist would be allowed to serve in a department for which the person lobbied.

As well, if you worked in the government, you could not then leave and become a lobbyist to that department. I like the rule. If I might borrow from a software development term, it ‘separates the concerns’. A fair and reasonable request.

Of course, now that he is confronted by reporters about a pentagon nominee who just recently lobbied the pentagon on behalf of Raytheon, he got agitated. The administration has asked for a ‘waiver’ for the individual because, I guess, there are no other suitably qualified people in all of the world.

Read about the pentagon official here.

 See Obama get agitated here when questioned by White House Press Corps folks.

This is the reason I say that he failed the meeting, though I imagine many will not. He gets easily miffed at being questioned. Yes, he did not go there for the purpose of answering questions, but they are reporters!

All during the campaign (and after) he  had the questioning tightly controlled. He had better get ready for the hard questions to come. Otherwise it will be a long four years,

A Soft Military Lets Him Off The Hook

I am as pro-America and pro-military as a guy can get. Ask  my wife just how vehement I got with regards to the blasphemous flags waving around Baltimore and Washington D.C. this past week and you will know just how sincere I am.

With that said, I am appalled at the recent verdict for a 19 year old Navy kid who tortured his girlfriend’s 8 month old daughter. If there is one thing that gets me going more than anti-Americanism it is cruelty towards children.

I can watch a movie about death and destruction. I can handle seeing what is going on with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. I have no sympathy for the murderer who screams his repentance right before the needle goes in. I rarely cry. That isn’t a boast, it just is.

However, if you want to see me get emotionally red-faced and visibly upset, show me a child that is being willfully hurt. It strikes too close to home, what with having four of my own. I would die for them without so much as batting an eye in contemplation (or so I tell myself- let us home it never comes to that).

So for slapping around this baby, dipping her in scalding water to ‘have something to laugh about’ and then dunking her in the bath tub to the point that he had to revive her, he gets 15 years.

FIFTEEN!! Out of a maximum of 45!

The asshole is only going to be 34 years old when he is let out. His ass should be put to death. Unfortunately, it is guys like this that get all of the attention for our troops. He should not have been let off the hook. He should have begged for his life before a firing squad.

Harsh Criticism Indeed

Scott Thong has this to say in his blog post regarding the repealing of the funding ban for abortion. Scott, however, is pulling no punches.

He speaks from the heart, however. Would it were that half our congress followed suit.

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

US To Fund Abortions Worldwide

As one of his top priorities, Obama will sign several executive orders. One of them is in regards to closing Gitmo, which to me is a big mistake, unless they find viable alternate holding cells for the prisoners.

Sure, we can bring them here to the USA, since no other country is willing to help us out, but WHERE will they go? It doesn’t really matter because by being here in the USA we now have excellent terror targets. Think their friends won’t want to come see them? Think again. And trying to protect the nearby cities and towns will be a logistical and security nightmare.

Then we have my favorite order being issued. Obama plans to rescind a Bush order that bans federal funding for non-governmental organizations working outside the U.S. that offer abortions or abortion counseling.

Basically, this means that if you are a private US firm working outside the United States, you can get FEDERAL dollars to conduct abortions or provide abortion counseling.

Great. Now we get to fund every global slut-fest there is with our tax dollars. I am quite sure that the world will love us ever so much more now that we are pulling ourselves out of our moral quagmire and into their ‘enlightened state’.

The Good The Bad And The Ugly

First the good: Caroline Kennedy has given up her bid to replace Hillary Clinton as the next senator for New York. Woot! There were mixed signals all day, but she, herself, sent a message indicating her decision.

Next the bad: Hillary Clinton is our new Secretary of State. While I am sure that she will do fine, and has plenty of experience in dealing with foreign governments, the fact that the very same questionable folks will still be contributing to Bill Clinton's foundation bothers me. Can you say fox in the hen house? How difficult will it be for her to do right by America, if funding for Slick Willie is on the line?

And the ugly: Janet Napolitano is our new Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. I don't know the woman, but that fact that she presided over the worst state for illegal alien crossings, left her successor a $1billion dollar budget deficit and opposed the state wide ballot measure to deny welfare benefits to illegal aliens is bad enough. But, I put her in this category for one real reason- she is, in fact, ugly. But that is just my prejudiced opinion.

Stupid Liberals Prove Me Right

I didn’t watch the Obagasm today. I had thought about it, but when I saw the abomination flags in the blogosphere, the very same ones touted in Baltimore that were now in D.C., I elected to skip the event. I am glad that I did. I just don’t think I could have sat through a racist invocation, a seriously out of it poet and the continual gushing of adoration by a million worshipers (and a few MSM news media to boot).

I hope my children got to see it; I have yet to ask them but I am sure their school stopped all class work to allow the children a chance to see the historic event. And I mean that sincerely, for it is certainly that. Children should be presented with events such as these; how else will they ever become knowledgeable citizens?

But the liberal crowds again showed their crass and ignorant ways. They demand fairness and equality for everyone. They demand that we look past bias and accept folks for who they are. The demand that we all just get along. Unless you are George W. Bush, former president of the United States of America.

As he left, the crowds were chanting an old tune- "na na na na, na na na na, hey-ey-ey, goodbye."

Yesterday, there were stands up where people could remove their shoe and throw it at a likeness of President Bush- who was still the president! Secret Service? Hello?

Will anyone in the Administration bother to repudiate the crowds? Will they stand up for the outgoing president? Of course not. But what they WILL do is go full speed into the liberal agenda now posted on the re-done site. All of the placating of gays, environmentalists and anti-American folks now begins in earnest. (And we can even blame Michelle Obama and Jill Biden because they are listed as part of the Administration, according to that site.)

Stupid is as stupid does. And today the news media provided me a great glimpse into the stupidity about to unfold.

Proposal To Remove Presidential Term Limits

I thought it was a joke, but it is true.

On January 6th, 2009, the Honorable Representative from the 16th District of New York entered into the House of Representatives H.J.Res.5, a bill proposing the repealing of the 22nd Amendment, thereby removing the presidential term limits.

Luckily there are no sponsors... yet! I wonder why he would want that?

Liberals Are Stupid

The double standard is getting to be incredibly much to bear. I swear, every day I believe more and more that the Russian guy who predicted America would fail and be divided into six different sections in 2010 is right- though perhaps off by a year.

I don't want any part of a liberal nation. The slow, consistent perversion of morality is killing me. I am by no means perfect. But abortion is wrong; Worshiping a false idol is wrong; Nanny State socialism is wrong; Being 'nice' to blood-thirsty psychopathic jihadists is wrong; Letting millions cross our borders and not forcefully enforcing immigration laws is wrong.

Why is it that when Republicans or Conservatives do something questionable the MSM and liberal idiots jump up and down screaming and crying foul, but when liberal idiots do the same thing, people have orgasms over the historical nature of it all?

Cases in point:

  • President Bush spent around $45 million on his inauguration and the media and liberal idiots screamed bloody murder, saying it was severely poor taste to spend so much during a time of war, and when the middle class was hurting. Of course, not a word is mentioned about the $150 million our President Elect is splooging all over Washington. So much so, that the White House has declared a state of emergency in the city and will be helping out financially (maybe THIS is why Congress released the rest of the TARP funds?)
  • In 2003, President Bush signed a few American flags for some embassy staff members. The media and liberal idiots, correctly, said President Bush was wrong in doing so. The code of the American flag clearly says that no marking shall be placed upon the flag. NOTHING ON THE FLAG. But of course, the liberal idiots don't give a damn about the American flag when the face of our President Elect is put on one. Don't believe me? Look for yourself. I would put it up here, but REFUSE to give that abomination of a flag any more visual press than it has already gotten.

The liberal bias in this country has reached a frenzied state. Our economy is going to tank even further after the hemorrhage  of money flowing from our coffers finally catches up with us. But all of the liberal idiots who voted for Obama (or against McCain) don't seem to care one iota that we are wallowing in our own immoral vomit. All that they care about is that Nanny Sam will provide all that they need and the rest of the world will once again pay homage to the USA because the savior is about to rise to his throne.

I get so sick of my fellow citizens some times. Perhaps my friend Grace has a point. Secession might not be such a bad thing, if it will allow me to live in the type of country meant to be by my founding fathers.

Finally! The REAL Change As Was Promised

UPDATE: I am not the only one seeing this happening. Check out what my buddy Bob has to say about the recent confirmations.


I get it now. The change promised by PEBHO (President-Elect Barrack Hussein Obama) is coming into the light for me. I had my doubts, but now I can see the grand scheme.

Basically, it no longer matters if you obey the law. All that you need to do is switch to the Democrat Party and all will be forgiven. This man is not the Messiah as claimed by many; he is, in fact, John the Baptist. He will cleanse us of our moral sins.

The fact is, that several of Obama’s picks for cabinet members have shady backgrounds and items of interest in their activities. Hillary Clinton used her senatorial clout to go to bat for some of the major donors to Bill Clinton’s foundation. His choice for Attorney General has the distinction of getting presidential pardons for some pretty bad guys- guys who should be spending life in prison about now.

His choice for Treasury Secretary, the very guy who will be overseeing the IRS, failed to pay his taxes for four years. Not only that, he failed to pay taxes for an ILLEGAL ALIEN EMPLOYEE. Oh, and not only that, he was reimbursed by the IMF (International Monetary Fund) for those very same taxes he failed to pay. He signed the forms indicating he understood just what was needed of him when it came to his tax liability- then promptly ignored it.

The arrogance is breathtaking. Here is a man, Ivy league educated, touted as a brilliant and detail-oriented tax master, who didn’t realize that he was supposed to be paying his own self-employment tax? Even after he signed the paperwork indicating he did? Who had to be told by the IRS to pay up? Who had to be told by the Obama team to pay up what the IRS had missed? (Or, more correctly, the statute of limitations for the additional failed taxes had expired, but the Obama team made him pay anyway).

Remember Joe the Plumber? He was railed in the media for his $1800 back tax lien (a lien he didn not know about because they sent the notice to an incorrect address). This guy missed $43,000 in taxes. Remember President Bush’s nominee for the head of Homeland Security Bernard B. Kerik? Remember how he failed to pay taxes on some ILLEGAL ALIENS in his employ? Remember the New York Times being all over the event? Remember how Mr. Kerik was forced to withdraw himself because of it?

So, because it was a Republican president doing the nominating, this obvious corruption could not be let go. Congressional leaders refused to allow the confirmation over such a thing. Yet, here we are four years later and we have an even WORSE nominee who is being given a pass by both the media and congress. They errors are being called ‘goofs’.

Well, I proclaim this year as National Goof Year. Call Disney, as I know the perfect replacement for the Bald Eagle as our national symbol.

He will fit right in with the current administration.

Another One Bites The Bus?

Bumpity bump bump, Bumpity bump bump look at OB go.

This is getting to be surreal. Tim Githner, Secretary Treasurer designee failed to pay taxes back from 2001-2004. No big deal, right? I mean, it was an honest goof by a smart (very smart) tax expert.

Githner worked at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and was supposed to pay self-employment taxes. He did not, and was told by the IRS he owed back taxes from 2003 and 2004.  He paid part of them.

Along comes Obama’s team to tell him that he also needed to pay all back taxes for the same mistakes in 2001 and 2002. He obliged, paying all back taxes in full just days before being announced as the President Elect’s Treasury choice. (Imagine that!)

The media has called it an ‘oops’ or a ‘goof’ on Geithner’s part. He did not realize the mistake; did not realize he had to pay his own employment taxes. (But… isn’t he a very smart TAX EXPERT??) As usual, he was given a pass- unlike Bush’s designees whom were dropped from contention based on the same thing- not paying taxes on illegal employees, which Geithner is guilty of as well.

So now it comes to light that not only did he not pay taxes, but he signed the paperwork every year for the IMF saying that he paid his own taxes. And, by signing that, the IMF reimbursed him those very same taxes!

What this means, then, is that he is either a crook or totally incompetent. He was reimbursed for taxes he failed to pay. Another ‘goof’? Not hardly.

The only goof so far is the guy picking all of these idiot cabinet members. I HOPE it gets better.

Best National Security Idea Ever

Ok, there are a lot of smart people in the world. Why has no one ever proposed this before? My God! Think of the lives we could save!

Read the idea here.

If you are too lazy to visit this guy’s site, let me break it down:

We require all convicted terrorists to register with their local authorities. Much like we do with sex offenders, we can have them entered into the national database. The author even goes as far as to make them have a Google map-like object.

You know, the push-pin thing on Google maps that when you hover it opens a balloon with all of the location’s information? In this case, the name, photo and what terror activity they were convicted of would be displayed.

I would like to add that we could also then provide web search ability, like for sex offenders. You could enter your address and get all of the convicted terrorists living within 10 miles of your house!


Now that would be something. I say we get the Internet-Savvy Obama folks on it. After all, if they can hide $150 million in donations from Hillary Clinton’s people, they can surely make THIS simple task a reality.

Best Comment Of The Day

The House is arguing the case over the afore-mentioned legislation that will pulverized the tobacco industry with taxes. On Michelle Malkin’s blog, one reader made a perfect comment regarding just what was going on:

My impression of the debate:

Here is the will of the DNC now shut up and vote.

All the people who like cute babies say aye…

All the child molesting monsters who want to make children suffer and die in pain say nay…

Americans Are Stupid

Yes. I said it. And yes, for the most part I mean it.

We as a nation cannot think for ourselves. We require massive amounts of media input to try and come to even a simple decision. We cannot (or will not) go out into the harsh world to find answers for ourselves, relying instead on a broken news media and radical wings of all parties putting crap out on the internet. (Yes, this includes blogs like this one.)

The Democrats ran on a ticket that we needed change to come to Washington, DC. We needed to do away with the garbage politics of old and usher in a new era of peace and prosperity.  Folks who are well-to-do must tighten their belts and give a little more, so that our great nation can turn the corner and begin crawling our way out of the cesspool and into the light of an enlightened country.

Yes. I see the great plan now. I am sorry for disbelieving. I shall strive to never again question those in power, for to do so is to be a hater, racist and bigot and is not tolerated in this country- unless, of course, you are against Israel or other freedom-loving, anti-radical countries who are defending themselves from daily bombardments- but that is another blog.

What I am talking about here is how Americans get snowed under by politicians who are good speakers, sound credible and look nice. How many young folks said they could never vote for someone who looked as old as McCain? I know of three, personally. Contrary to that, we have media who get ‘thrills up their legs’ by being close to Obama, who give others a pass on things like tax fraud, employing illegal aliens, helping push through pardons for big time crooks, and a whole host of other things.

Look at Hillary Clinton’s confirmation; hardly any of the Republicans have even been present at her confirmation hearings and those who were made it more of a group hug than anything. She fought for companies and donors to Bill Clinton’s foundation. She used her political influence on their behalf.

This is the state of our union?

Now look at what Obama promised Americans during the election. A tax cut for 95% of working Americans (an impossibility if you go by the IRS numbers, where 40% of Americans do not pay income taxes). He promised that he would not raise taxes on the poor, and the media sold the lie to America.

Did we investigate? Some did, but the vast majority were blinded by Bush hatred and/or Obama love. It is that simple. Rational thought left us long ago and we are now guided by our ideological passions. This includes a corrupted media.

What is driving this post is the new legislation being pushed through the Hose and Senate. It is a law that will massively increase taxes on all tobacco products. It is interesting to note that studies by various institutions have reported that families making OVER $60,000 per year account for only 14% of the taxes on tobacco. What that means, dear readers, is that the POOR of the country are about to have their asses handed to them.

Of course, the liberal folks will tout that the taxes will be used to provide funding for health care for children. If you are against that you are a Hate Monger in Extremis, even though many of the people getting these funds are neither poor nor children. So the new regime will not tax your income- that would be bad. instead, they will tax (incredibly) an entire industry; an industry largely supported by those at the lower income levels.

How bad could it be? Cigarette taxes would rise from $19.50 per thousand to $50.00 per thousand for small cigarettes and from $40.95 per thousand to $105.00 per thousand for large cigarettes.

Read the bill here, or just the tax portion here. Michelle Malkin does a great job of reporting on it.

Get ready to ride the wave. It’s going to be a wild time.

Imagine That!

So, dear readers, what we have been saying all along is corroborated by the Pentagon. Just yesterday, President Bush went on the offensive about Guantanamo. He said that for all of the countries who bitched about our keeping TERRORISTS locked up in Cuba, not a single one of them agreed to let them be moved to their country for holding while awaiting trial.

Imagine That!

The reports are all around, letting the world know just how good the TERRORISTS in Gitmo have it, including hot meals, video games and time to pray as they see fit. Of course, one will never see it reported in the media, as it is not good slander against our troops or the president.

Imagine That!

Now, it seems, that the folks in the Pentagon are opening up about an interesting development on the battlefield. It seems that some of those poor, misunderstood TERRORISTS who were allowed to be let go because they were ‘illegally’ detained as TERRORISTS in Cuba are now showing up in increasing numbers as attackers against our troops.

Imagine that!

For all of you liberal bitches who continue to whine about what we are doing to protect our country, SHUT THE #$@! UP (edited from original comment with apologies for getting all worked up) and stay in your hidey-hole, while we go out and do what is NECESSARY to inflict pure retribution on the TERRORISTS who seek to destroy us.

New Hope For Teachers In Washington State


Simply put, this is incredibly stupid. So if you are a teacher, there is nothing whatsoever wrong with sleeping with a student- as long as that student is over the age of 18.

Ok, I know. A student who is 18 is legally an adult. But my daughter will be in high school when 18. That makes it alright for her teacher to make a play for her?

Laws for students should be revised to include criminal liability for situations like this. In college, I imagine it is even worse. But for kids in high school, laws should be adjusted to include them until such a time as they graduate and become part of society.

I don’t have a good answer. I am mostly passionate about my daughter someday facing this potential issue. And it is just plain wrong.

See the moral erosion here.

Big Joe On The Move

I have to say, I am not sure about Joe the Plumber, but I don’t fault the guy from taking every advantage of the opportunities given him. He was a bit hard on the McCain campaign, speaking out about how he thought that it was badly run, etc, though he hasn’t offered anything better (that I know).

Be that as it may, had I been in his shoes I would be doing the same thing- sinking my teeth in and milking it for all I was worth.

Our intrepid campaign hero is now on the trail of the piss-poor media in Israel and Palestine. Read about his adventures here or watch them on Pajamas TV.

Supreme Court To Hear Case

I find it incredibly remarkable. If true, and it appears to be, the Supreme Court Justice John Roberts has agreed to hear the case against Barack Obama regarding eligibility to become POTUS.

Stupid Congress Forces Bankruptcy

It seems to me, that the more the United States Federal Government tries to help, the worse they make things. I have ranted about the flood of money being used to artificially support our economy, a plan so idiotic that only our elected officials would want to try it - and thus be able to blame everyone else when it fails, because the dissenters blocked their ability to spend even more and so it was Conservatives' fault for putting the idea of of fiscal responsibility and small government into everyone's head so even though massive entitlement programs have failed many times before we were sure we had it right this time, until it didn't work again but it's not our fault, it''s... Bush!


However, this new government regulation is something that is incredibly MORE stupid; a regulation that could potentially bankrupt a whole host of businesses.

But as I look at it, I realize that it is all part of a grander scheme. By pretending to 'help protect children' no matter the cost, when this new regulation forces business to close their doors, the former employees will become dependant on government handouts. Thus, our new congress will have job-security.

Although, the 600,000 new federal employees, employees we taxpayers will need to fund forever, should have been enough to satisfy even the most hardy liberal, big-government glutton.

I guess not.

Told You So!

Back in November, I had this to say about the looming energy issue in Russia as was reported in the news and other commentary.  Now, it seems, it has come to pass.

Check out the latest development between Russia and the Ukraine. Scary, isn't it?

More Change To Wonder About

I spent 20 years in the Navy. I loved and hated it as much as anything I can remember. Loved it for the adventure, people and experience; hated it for the vast amount of time away from home, paltry pay and the people I had to work with (double edged sword!).

One thing I will say, is that I support our men and women 100%. I will defend their actions to my last breath. For those who criticize them, I would say spend a bit of time in the service members'  shoes. You may gain some insight as to why they think the way that they do.

I have said repeatedly that I have no issue with gays. But I am sorry, I find it reprehensible that our new President-elect has marked for his next Secretary of the Navy an openly gay man. From there, the signal is clear that the walls are about to come down regarding the military's don't ask, don't tell policy.

Outsiders just do not get it. For one thing, getting mixed crews brought about a big problem on surface ships. Sailors found a myriad of ways to get alone time with their favorite shipmate. It caused major hassles when they were caught, or worse, became pregnant. Senior members were forced to devise rules and guidelines that inhibited sailors of the opposite sex from being alone with one another. This was not always possible, but I bore witness to just what was required to achieve this.

Adding into the mix, now, gay members, the problem rises even further. And though I hate to say it, a military soldier, sailor or airmen does not want to constantly look over their shoulder and wonder if their shipmate is eyeing them sexually. The same argument that reversed Clinton's attempt still holds true today: there is a vast morale concern here. And like I said if you are on the outside, you just cannot understand our train of thought.

So, with that said, if this man, Bill White, gets the nod and is confirmed, our military is going to be put under a far greater strain from this issue than it gets from the continued conflict in the Middle East. Pry for our brothers and sisters in harms way. Life just may be about to inflict the Change We Deserve.

The Wicked Witch Is Not Dead

I saw the Wizard of Oz. I saw the Witch of the East get crushed under a house and the Witch of the West get melted from a bucket of water. They were destroyed, leaving only Glenda the Good Witch of the North alive. (Unless she had a southern sister I don't know about, of course.)

Now, however, either Glenda is a turncoat (God help us all) or the Wicked Witch of the West has arisen from the grave and now plots to overthrow all of mankind with their evil ways.

What am I talking about?

Nancy Pelosi, the Democrat Congresswoman from California, and the current Speaker of the House has announced plans to remove the fairness rules established by the REPUBLICANS under the leadership of then-Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Under the rules change, if a Democrat submits legislation that Republicans disagree with, they will be unable to change it, submit alternatives or even guarantee open debate over the bill. Basically, what the Speaker wants to do is make sure that the Republican House members will not be able to do anything to oppose the agenda to the Democrats.

This is the change that the people of America has voted for. A democracy gets the government that they deserve. I just hope our new Oligarchy is kind and benevolent.

When in Rome, Do Not Become The Roman

I was watching a video on a favorite blog of mine today, The Radio Patriot. In the video, the author discusses the various forms of government. There is not a lot I did not already know, but the video does an excellent job of bringing the information back to the front of my brain; as such, I now am bringing it here for you to ponder.

When our country was created, it was designed to be a Republic. Today, everyone calls the United States a Democracy. The two forms of government are vastly different. In a  Democracy, a majority rules. That means if more than 50% of the people agree to something, then it is so. In a Republic, there is a small government that has the sole purpose of 'protecting its people.'

Over time, more power has been assumed by our elected officials. Like the Romans, the population is becoming more and more reliant on the government to solve all of its ills. There is no more real self-reliance. It is much easier to get a handout, and continue to do so, than to actually put forth the effort to make it on your own.

I will submit that this is not always the case. I am even hopeful that it is really the minority case. But it is growing stronger every year. Just look at what has happened in the recent past. The people who are getting elected are those who promise to give more. If I did the same thing to a police officer, I would be arrested for attempted bribery.

Yet, in our national elections, people were promised this grandiose plan of 'much needed relief'. It does not matter that the reason we, as a country, fell on such hard times is because we SPENT TOO MUCH. What matters is that people cried that they did not have enough; they did not have as much as the next guy who had a better paying job or better skills at the job he had; they were not getting enough of a break from the government.

The cry about tax breaks being only for the wealthy was used to great effectiveness this election cycle. But to that I say, who should the tax breaks go to? The people at the bottom pay no taxes, so it HAS to go to those who make more. Even with the tax cuts, the wealthiest pay more than the other half. But that was not enough for the 'average Joe' and so the masses complained and were answered.

But I digress into campaign rhetoric. It is in the past. We are moving into the future; The great Roman Empire Part II. If you disagree, just look at history. The Roman people needed the government to protect them so they went from a Republic into an Oligarchy. A few in power totally dominated the rest.

Does this not sound familiar? If we are a Democracy, then does not the majority rule? And if the majority rules, would not the bailouts have been a non-issue? Our elected officials completely ignored the will of the people because they now have the power to do as they wish 'for our best'. I don't need a nanny-government telling me what I need to do. I need a government to do as I want. It is why they were elected in the first place.

I would say, 'they would do well to remember that', but I think they know the truth as well as I; America is already in the latter stages of the Roman Empire, and soon we will need to surrender all control to the incoming Oligarchy (dictatorship). I wish it were not so, but the facts, as laid out, are nearly irrefutable.

Right in our own backyard

The conflict exploding across Israel and the Gaza strip is bad enough. Now, we have pro-Palestinian people running amuck right here in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

While I feel for the civilians caught up in the ordeal, perhaps they should not elect a terrorist organization to lead them. Nothing good will (or has) come of it.

I will say again, why is it alright to launch 100's of homemade rockets at schools and civilian targets in Israel, but not OK for Israel to target the centers of Hamas? Yes, innocents are going to get hurt, but when you start a war, you had better consider to consequences.

Read (and view) about the Florida protest here. Hat tip to The Radio Patriot for getting the video out for viewing.
