Have Our Chickens Finally Come Home?

with one comment


 
Amazing, isn’t it? Right away, I have two thoughts.

First, people such as those presented in the video, are demonstrating an inability to process truth even when the facts are carefully laid out before them. Their minds have been corrupted to the point where that capability has been taken from them. They are no longer independent thinkers capable of engaging in critical analysis. In a sense, they are truly drones, zombies, the walking unconscious.

As a visible case for this point, in Greece, the populace run into the streets to protest and riot against austerity measures designed to pay off their astronomical level of debt. In effect, these people are protesting against the outcome of their own design, the result of generations who voted for politicians who have promised them benefits they could never afford. Their chickens have come home.

Second, Nikita Kruschev was absolutely correct when he addressed the Western Ambassadors at the Polish embassy in Moscow on November 18, 1956, where he said the following:

We will take America without firing a shot…….We will BURY YOU! We can’t expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism. “We do not have to invade the United States, we will destroy you from within.

Conclusion

I would have to say the process of subversion which has produced a population unable to process and accept truth has been very, very successful. In addition, our education system has performed superbly at keeping the voting population as dumb as a box of left-handed crayons while at the same time the media expertly performed their duties by continuing to pump pablum into the brains of American voters.

 
 

How to unelect a Governor

leave a comment »

There is a tactic being applied designed to usurp the will of the people. It is both simple yet effective. It is the tactic of litigating an elected official out of office.

There is an independent investigator who has accused Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin of violating state ethics laws. The interesting part is that he is a major donor to the Democratic Party as well as a partner in a law firm that represented Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.

Thomas Daniel was hired by the Alaska Personnel Board in late April to investigate several complaints against Palin, including one filed by an Alaska resident who claims the governor used her official position for personal gain by authorizing the creation of a trust to use as her legal defense fund.

Palin’s supporters say the governor, who will resign on Sunday, needs the legal fund because of a quirk in Alaska law that prevents state officials from defending the state’s chief executive against ethics allegations.

“The whole situation is nuts,” said John Coale, a prominent Washington attorney who helped set up the legal fund, which so far has accepted $500,000 in donations. “Alaska has an ethics law that is unsustainable.”

Coale also accused the personnel board of being “either vicious or idiotic” to hire Daniel, whose law firm is closely tied to the Democratic Party.

This should serve to make all of us livid, but it escapes most people.

What amazes me about the “Let’s Bash Palin” crowd is the attraction to the minutia and lack of ability to stop consuming the pablum and gaze upon the bigger picture.

It’s clear to me that the majority of voting Americans are easily tempted and fooled by slick speaking car salesmen only to discover that after they get into office they deliver us into ruin the likes of which this country has never seen.

Like Palin, Bush was vilified for the lack of oratory skills and his mannerisms. Compared to what we now have, I’d go for an honest speaking common American without charm and charisma in a heart-beat.

A missed opportunity

Jews aren’t the only segment of American society concerned about Barack Obama and his apparent willingness to throw Israel under the bus. This American is concerned that after Israel, he may throw America under that same bus.

I rest at night (albeit lightly) only because I gain a little bit of peace from the fact I did not vote for Barack Obama. My reasons for not voting for him comes more from personal efforts to do a little bit of research about him during the early days of his campaign and less from sound-bites provided by TV and radio. This research, coupled with a willingness to let the facts speak for themselves allowed me to assess his character and values as many know them to be today – only after the election.

My findings allowed me to see him as the socialist many are only now calling him. I saw a man whose character and values were formed and influenced by a 20+ year association with the Rev. Wright, an obvious racist and anti-Semitic, along with Bill Ayers and others of his ilk who harbor anti-American sentiment.

His background and early upbringing have given me cause to suspect his allegiance to America. This has since become painfully clear after hearing his recent speeches given abroad.

His experience with and knowledge of fiscal matters is showing to be abundantly weak. The motley collection comprising his cabinet have roots in Chicago politics and are tainted by the same. There have been jokes made of the fact that some members of his cabinet avoided paying taxes only to have them miraculously paid once they had been selected for the cabinet position. This has been drolly described as Obama’s earliest efforts in fiscal responsibility. To date, it’s been his best shot at it.

I could go on describing the weaknesses of this president including his naivete on foreign matters which will undoubtedly serve to be dangerous for America, but I will instead point to a missed opportunity for a great op-ed piece which can be read here. http://www.afa.net/youscareme.asp

In the end, it should be clear that we can never take our awesome responsibility to vote lightly; that our vote carries with it supreme consequences. It should also be clear that we have repeated history here.

We have rushed headlong for change, anxious to distance ourselves from a president who guided America out from the shadows of the events of September 11, 2001, only to be placed under a darker shadow of fiscal disaster for the nation.

One only has to look back upon the Ford-Carter election of 1976 and to reflect upon the psyche of America in the wake of Watergate to learn we have missed yet another opportunity to prevent history from repeating itself.

Live and learn can’t even be applied.

$100 Million in savings!! Wowsers!!!!

with one comment

I know that $100 million dollars is a lot of money, but when you compare that against the pile it came from, it is a mere pittance.

Obama's idea of saving.

So which should make me the most angry about this? Is it the fact that Obama did not try to save us from a mountain of debt by taking a bigger budget cut? Or, should I be angry at the fact that I’m expected to be satisfied and grateful with this symbolic effort to reduce the size of the colossal budget, and in so doing, realizing that I and every other thinking American are begin played as an idiot.

Dodd: General Motors Executive Should Resign in Exchange for Bailout

with 2 comments

Sen. Chris Dodd called on the CEO of General Motors to be replaced if the auto company is to receive any bailout money from the federal government.

U.S. Senate Banking Committee Chairman Chris Dodd called on a top auto executive to resign in exchange for bailout money from the federal government.

Dodd said General Motors’ chief executive officer Rick Wagoner — who has been with GM since 1977 — should be replaced if the faltering auto company is to receive any money from the government.

“I think he has to move on,” the Democratic senator said of Wagoner during an interview Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

“If you are really going to restructure this, you’ve got to bring in a new team to do this,” he said.

Dodd also said he is hopeful Congress will pass a short-term $15 billion aid package for the automakers in the next several days. But the Connecticut Democrat says the companies should have to restructure if they want a more significant bailout from Congress next year.

He added that the companies need quick cash to avoid collapse in the next several weeks. But over the long-term, Dodd said Chrysler probably ought to merge with another company.

Dodd said Ford is the healthiest of the Big Three U.S. automakers.

ED:

If Dodd’s reasoning for calling upon a top auto executive to resign his position as head of a faltering company rests on claims of mismanagement, incompetency, dereliction of duty, lack of vision, failing to accurately gauge and correct failed policies, then for the same reasons Dodd should likewise resign his position as Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee.

Dodd’s leadership and failed policies for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac served to usher in the credit debacle tax-payers are to pay for.

In my opinion, both Dodd and Barney Frank are at the top of the pyramid and both should be the first in the long line of many Democrats (please give me a name of a Republican – an no, Bush does not count) to be removed from office.

If Dodd wants accountability from auto company leadership we should all be screaming from the mountain tops for Dodd’s and Frank’s heads.

We should show no mercy two years from now.

Representative John Lewis reaction to McCain campaign “hostility”.

leave a comment »

Representative John Lewis reacts to audience members divisive comments at campaign stop by blaming McCain.   Keep in mind all that Mr. McCain did was cite fact.  No more.  No less.  Just the facts.   He can no more be held responsible for reaction to those facts than I can be held responsible for Mr. Lewis’s obtuse viewpoint on the matter.

As one who was a victim of violence and hate during the height of the Civil Rights Movement, I am deeply disturbed by the negative tone of the McCain-Palin campaign. What I am seeing today reminds me too much of another destructive period in American history. Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin are sowing the seeds of hatred and division, and there is no need for this hostility in our political discourse.

During another period, in the not too distant past, there was a governor of the state of Alabama named George Wallace who also became a presidential candidate. George Wallace never threw a bomb. He never fired a gun, but he created the climate and the conditions that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans who only desired to exercise their constitutional rights. Because of this atmosphere of hate, four little girls were killed one Sunday morning when a church was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama.

As public figures with the power to influence and persuade, Sen. McCain and Governor Palin are playing with fire, and if they are not careful, that fire will consume us all. They are playing a very dangerous game that disregards the value of the political process and cheapens our entire democracy. We can do better. The American people deserve better.

This is simply an example of hypersensitivity. How does anyone raise facts about the behavior of any given person without being attacked from an emotional level and in the process having to defend against irrelevant accusations?

Say for a moment a young boy sees his four year old sister set fire to the family cat and he reports the event to his mother who retorts, “Leave your poor sister alone. She would never do such a thing. You’re just picking on her! Now go to your room young man!!!”

The attack from the mother comes from an emotional level and chooses to ignore an accusation firmly based upon fact. A conscious choice is made to dismiss an allegation because of a strong emotional attachment and a general disbelief that the little girl is capable of doing wrong.

Don’t shoot the messenger just because you don’t like the message, especially when the message is based upon fact. Doing so only makes you look like an over protective and emotional mother.

Further, If McCain and/or Palin are at the podium to deliberately bring the crowd to a froth ready to lynch then that is one thing which should never be defended. However, again, this isn’t the case.

The fact there are a few idiots in the crowd should be viewed by any thinking American as being just that and should not serve to detract from the facts presented by McCain and Palin.

In my opinion, Mr. Lewis who owes McCain and Palin an apology after his vile attempt to link them to rioting in the streets and organizing lynch mobs and should seek out the members of the audience to address his grievance.

America – no principles, no scruples, no honor.

leave a comment »

Polls are showing that Obama’s association with Bill Ayers – bomber of the U.S. Capitol building during the late 60’s and therefore a domestic terrorist – carries no importance to the majority of Americans. Of those polled 87% do not believe Obama’s relationship with Bill Ayers is a valid campaign issue.
View the poll here.

Why is that?   Why is it not important that a possible future president of the most powerful and greatest country in the world launched his political career from the living room of a domestic terrorist, a self-described communist?

Why would anyone seek out and align with racists, anti-Americans and Marxists unless they considered themselves to be a sympathizer of their beliefs, motivations and ideals.

We have a presidential candidate who actually makes it a personal policy to associate with individuals like Bill Ayers and Rev. Wright.

To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists. – Barack Obama

But what can we expect from a country with a growing population who has over the past few decades grown to hate her country, has popular cultural figures publicly sympathize with her enemies and encourages others to do the same? What else can we expect from a country that believes it is more important to abandon her founding principles to embrace socialist/Marxist policies?

Why America should not vote for Barack Obama

leave a comment »

He’s a racist.

He portrays himself as a mainstream American which he is not.

To the Trinity Church of Christ in Chicago Illinois and to Reverend Wright in particular I have this to say.

From where I sit, I don’t hear a positive message about Jesus teaching about love and forgiveness. Instead, I hear messages wrapped around the central theme of white Europeans and Romans oppressing and killing a black Jesus. The parable here is obvious.

Your own bigotry blinds you to how your messages are coming across to the rest of America. In a country where over the last 50 years we have been trying to remove bigotry from our very own culture, message like those coming from this church and from Reverend Wright in particular only serve to perpetuate what we are trying to destroy. If anyone should, it should be the leadership within the black community who should be setting the standards and in the process raising the bar.

The fact that it took Barack Obama a little over 20 years to denounce the words of Reverend Wright is telling. It should not take 20 years to decide if you should associate with leadership spewing racist vomit. I suppose in this case it’s like they say: “Birds of a feather …”.

Racism is not limited to just the white population and the black community is not immune. The “teachings” of Reverend Wright shows that a segment of the black population can also be guilty of racism. The hypocrisy is self evident.

Simply put, Reverend Wright and Mr. Obama are racists. The failure of Obama to distance himself from the Reverend and this church says it all. Veiled racist and in-your-face anti-American rants by leaders who falsely preach hope and opportunity are not what this country needs.

I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of twelve or thirteen, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites. – Barack Obama

I found solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race. – Barack Obama

He views America as so flawed that he wants to change it

My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you’ll join me as we try to change it. – Barack Obama

He is a Globalist

People of Berlin – people of the world – this is our moment. This is our time. – Barack Obama

He is a Socialist with leanings toward Maxrism
Obama’s pledge to cut taxes for 95 percent of Americans, while raising taxes on the tiny fraction who earn more than $250,000 is known as “redistribution of wealth” and is understood by most thinking Americans as “stealing from the rich and giving to the poor”. Revealing a socialist mentality, Obama says it’s simply being “neighborly”.

If I am sitting pretty and you’ve got a waitress who is making minimum wage plus tips, and I can afford it and she can’t, what’s the big deal for me to say, I’m going to pay a little bit more? That’s neighborliness. – Barack Obama, Sept. 8, Fox News interview with Bill O’Reilly

Reaching into your own pocket and pulling out a large tip for that waitress is neighborly. There is nothing neighborly about using the tax code to make you pay the waitress a large tip. Redistribution of wealth in pursuit of social fairness is not neighborly or generosity. It is tantamount to theft at gunpoint.

Why would anyone seek to align themselves with racists, anti-Americans and Marxists unless they considered themselves to be a sympathizer of their beliefs, motivations and ideals?

This is the moment when we must build on the wealth that open markets have created, and share its benefits more equitably. Trade has been a cornerstone of our growth and global development. But we will not be able to sustain this growth if it favors the few, and not the many. – Barack Obama

The American Democratic Party has presented their presidential candidate who launched his political career from the living room of a domestic terrorist, a self-described communist. We have a presidential candidate who actually makes it a personal policy to associate with individuals like Bill Ayers and Rev. Wright.

To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists. – Barack Obama

He is ignorant about the United States
It is no less fair to point this out than it is to rail against a vice president for misspelling potato or to label a president as a moron simply because of a demonstrated lack of oratory skills.

Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. – Barack Obama

He has a history of questionable friends and associates demonstrating bad judgement

William Ayers was clearly more than someone Obama just ran into in the neighborhood on occasion. In the mid-1990s, when Obama was making his first run for the Illinois Senate, Ayers had Obama to his home to introduce him to others.

Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that’s where it’s really at. — William Ayers

Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon. — William Ayers

I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough. — William Ayers, September 11, 2008

Does anyone else see the symbolism of launching a political career from the home of a radical American – a domestic terrorist – an anti American – a self described communist? Is this not important and worthy of overlooking? William Ayers bombed the United States capitol building for Christ’s sake!!!

I’ll put it another way… What conclusion would you draw if I associate myself with the Grand Dragon of the KKK and had launched my successful bid for the local chief of police from his living room? How would that be viewed by the local black Americans?

He is an enemy of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
Q: You said recently, “I have no intention of taking away folks’ guns.” But you support the D.C. handgun ban, and you’ve said that it’s constitutional. How do you reconcile those two positions?

A: Because I think we have two conflicting traditions in this country. I think it’s important for us to recognize that we’ve got a tradition of handgun ownership and gun ownership generally. And a lot of law-abiding citizens use it for hunting, for sportsmanship, and for protecting their families. We also have a violence on the streets that is the result of illegal handgun usage. And so I think there is nothing wrong with a community saying we are going to take those illegal handguns off the streets. And cracking down on the various loopholes that exist in terms of background checks for children, the mentally ill. We can have reasonable, thoughtful gun control measure that I think respect the Second Amendment and people’s traditions.

His continued association with radical organizations such as Acorn
On behalf of Acorn, in 1995 Obama worked with a group of Chicago attorneys and won a suit forcing the state of Illinois to implement the federal “motor-voter” bill. To be clear Obama worked as a lawyer for Acorn which actively engages in strong-arm and in-your-face tactics to oppose welfare reform laws. Acorn uses banking regulations to pressure financial institutions to give massive donations to Acorn which are then used to finance supposedly non-partisan voter turn-out drives. This flies in the face of current activities of Acorn’s where today Acorn is being investigated for driving people registered only moments before to places of early voting and telling them to vote for Obama. Today Acorn is being investigated in Ohio for voter registration fraud where in some cases it is clear a voter registration form was submitted more that a dozen times for the same person which showed handwriting suggestive of a 12-year old.

This is an orchestrated effort by the left-wing socialist minded and by extension the Democratic Party to undermine the political process to help usher in a socialist regime.

Change for the sake of change
This country deserves better for President of the United States than the likes of Mr. Obama and his ilk.

But I fear that liberals driven by their emotions and not their intellect will vote him into office – all for the illusion that change is always for the better.
