Leftist Hate vs Reality? Time To Wake Up America!

One note before I go on. Anyone who has followed me at all will recognize most of the tail end of this particular post, especially in regards to the Tea Party. It is something I not only deeply believe in, but is in fact something that has to be said again and again. We silent majority Americans have got to drown out the destructive garbage coming from the hard left (as well as from the right)! This is long (sorry bout that!), but as I say in the main body below it has to be said.

There is a wonderful site I follow called Flopping Aces. ( . They have some great writers and contributors, and the comments are quite colorful and varied from both sides to say the least. 5 or 6 days ago, one of their folks posted a number of videos showing the vile hatred spewing from various lefty loons. The post was titled “Left wingers are animals” by Dr. John.

As expected, the lefties on the site took the writer to task for having the horrible gall to even equate a human to an animal citing how hateful that was and in turn ignoring the very proof in front of them as is normal for hard core ideologues of any persuasion. Early on in the thread, which by the way is one of the longer ones I have seen, I posted the following. (Note: I’m leaving things as I posted the comments. There are referrals to a few of the folks who comment on this site. Again, let me say they it is one of the best sites out there for discourse and I really enjoy engaging with everyone on there. One other note. I refer to Skook who actually goes under the moniker of Skookum when he posts. Among other things he is an ex racetrack (blacksmith) as I am . I just want to point out that he is in my opinion one of the greatest writer I have ever read. His stories are warm and reflect a life well lived).

“I’m not sure what a poor animal has ever done to be equated with these dregs of society! I’m sure Skook would agree with me as in the case of a horse for example. Noble and proud animals who surely are a far better example of life then these lowlifes!”

Over the next couple of days, I kind of forgot about it until I looked at my email as I get alerts from their site as to comments. Man, I couldn’t believe what I was reading as to the arguments going on between the commenters. As usual of course we had the racist hatemonger charge being bandied around as well as a rabid disregard for any facts bring put forth. In fact, the feel of the thread was becoming in my view extremely snitty. As there are way too many posts on this, let it suffice that when I finally caught up with it 3 days later, I got into one of my “I’ve had enough of this crap snits”. So let’s go on! My next reply was as follows:

“Long one here folks, but I’ve got my dander up!

My My, we’re getting a bit snitty here. For the record from my little place in the world. First and foremost it needs to be noted that the saner minds on this site (Mata, Bees, Skook and the others) are always first to point out there are loonies on the fringes in both parties.

Having said that, the main facts speak for themselves. The hatred, racist accusations, disdain for any opinion different from their own as evidenced by the leftist Democrats, their leaders and in turn the portion of the electorate ( I wonder a lot about those making the most noise. Losers like them tend to be the takers and not responsible voters) cannot even remotely be described as civilized. And as I said early on in this thread, animals should be insulted to be compared to the trash passing themselves off as “liberals”.

For the Gregs, Riches and others out there, I notice every one of you pretty much march to the hateful tune being put forward by the Dems. I will say one of you at least acknowledged the media’s leftist bias and then in turn defend them! So, I ask something I’ve asked more than once. What the hell is the matter with you people?! You defend the lies put forth (or the truths hidden) by the MSM and the party. You not only try to justify bit in fact glorify the pure vile hatred as put forth by these idiots. You lecture anyone with an opposing view to be tolerant. Just because they might be “expressing it badly, they still might be correct in their assertions”, those assertions being anyone on the right is a racist hateful person who only wants to get rich or whatever off the backs of the lazy idiots who only want to take!

I have been to 3 so called Tea Party meetings. I have not seen anything comparable from the right as to what we are seeing from the left. In the Town Hall meetings I have been too, the hate has come from the left. I have not seen people from the right trying to take over or disrupt meetings as what is happening from the left. And I sure as hell don’t see the right day in and day out throwing out the race tag or whatever other class warfare item they can when they cannot justify their positions.

The fact that from what I see the left will only put out the propaganda that they feel all should hear is bad enough. But for them to put out the Bull S… arguments that I have seen through this thread while refusing to even remotely acknowledge the compromised media is absolutely beyond me.

As near as I can see, the leftists have just about succeeded in their quest at indoctrination of the masses. They lash out at the truth yelling as loud as possible to block it. Their double standards are all they want one to see. The hate spewing from the left, be it the Al Sharptons, the Trumkas or any off the others is a sad commentary on what was once a great country.

Look in the mirror folks (this also goes for those far right idiots)! I believe the quote goes “We have seen the enemy and they enemy is us” (sorry if I got it wrong)? Well that’s what you have.

We’re out of time here folks! Tough decisions have to be made. not the posturing or the bull shit lies coming from the President, his lackeys or the entrenched RINO bastards who think we can just keep rolling along! Hell, you folks on the left actually feel anything I make belongs to the people! And you can all go jump because it belongs to me! Even now, one could take every dollar from every facet of this country and NOT PAY OFF THE DEBT, FORGET NORMAL SPENDING! My and your kids and grandkids are being stuck with this and you’re out there spewing hatred and worse. The President has the balls to tell a flat out lie his budget will cut the deficit when he still spends more than taken in? Ryan’s budget is accepted with scorn as being hateful towards whomever but at least is an attempt to if nothing else start the discussion. OOPS! Can’t have that! Discussion isn’t allowed by the left if it counters their position. So we’re right where we’ve been!

It’s time for those on the left and the right to understand one thing. I and others do not owe anyone a damn thing other than the equal right to succeed. Morally we all need to help the truly helpless. Other than that, those who refuse to help themselves don’t deserve anything from me or my government. We are out of time as far as addressing this country’s deficit. The fact that those on the left (and some on the right) are so intent on keeping their handouts and entitlements and in turn are willing to accept our fall into third world status disgusts me. Thoughtful discussion is fine. throwing out hate is bad! Since we all know the truth is now easy to find if one wants to look, something the left definitely doesn’t want to do as some on the hard right, it’s time for everyone to get their heads out of the sand and be real for once in their lives.
Just a quick example: When one has a Congresswoman who says she can’t understand the new members of Congress who insist things should be Constitutional when passed, one has to figure the party is now completely ignorant of any recognition of our country’s true ideals.

Play time is over folks. gloves off. It’s time for the hate mongers(and those few on the right who we have heard from, minuscule as opposed to what’s coming from the left at this moment) on the left to stop their yelling and vitriol and start acting on the problem at hand! Take the co-opted media to task. Take the political scum who refuse to act responsibly to task. Take the 40 or more percent of the “I wants” to task. This isn’t a free ride by any stretch of the imagination kiddies. For those of you who are moronic enough to actually justify the antics of the cretins as evidenced above, this probably goes against your very fiber but you need to get your heads into the game. And the game IS NOT THE VILE TRASH ONE IS SEEING FROM THE LEFT AND FOR THAT MATTER THIS PRESIDENT!

As always, the left refuses to acknowledge the truth choosing to point a finger rather than suggesting a real remedy. This is about the future of our country! The electorate had better come to it’s senses now. The hate has to stop! We are out of time!!!!@ “

A bit later, a gentleman named Rich Wheeler, a regular on the site replied as follows (please note. Rich was gracious in his reply to the following. I rarely agree with him, but he is one who is always willing to engage in discourse, a rarity for the left. Don’t think I or others have changed his mind on anything though. LOL!):

Reply from Rich Wheeler:

Joe T. Short note. Tea party consists of 80%-90% disgruntled white Repubs. To continue to paint some “rainbow picture ” is disingenuous .Let’s get real on that. Their approval sits at 27% and dropping. Sarah has disappeared in the polls. Will Michelle replace her?

For better or worse left leaning MSM, as evidenced by ratings, is no more powerful than right ranting Fox and Limbaugh.

I see crazies on the fringes of left and right. The over zealous protestors in Wisc. have been condemned. When people say BHO’S GOAL is to destroy the country and the Constitution I WANT TO THROW A NET. Why would a man who owes everything to his country purposely try to destroy it? Is he a Russian communist plant.? A Manchurian Candidate? C’mon Has any other Pres. in history TRIED to destroy his country.

I am a Dem and a Patriot A USMC V.N. VET. I love my country and have fought for it. As mentioned before I get real tired of those who tightly wrap themselves in flag and Constitution but have never served in our great country’s military.

As one can imagine, I couldn’t leave that one alone, now could I? So, I once again went off on one of my tirades. Again, most familiar with me realize this is all stuff I have discussed in the past exactly like I say below.

“Good lord Rich! Do you just read off a list of talking points or something? Get this straight once and for all. I don’t give one damn about ratings, polls or whatever. I give a damn about the truth as it should be put forward! I care about this country as it was founded, not about the Marxist/Socialist Dictatorship that the left seems to espouse!

I commend you for your duty! There is no higher sacrifice. However, the fact is that this country is now nothing but a sad shell of what it once was and that disintegration is being caused by the hard left slant taken by our leaders. As I say above, it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to open their eyes to the truth. It just takes someone to open their eyes!

Do I believe one could refer to Obama as a Manchurian candidate? Yes, I do. Do I believe he is purposely destroying the country? No, I don’t! I feel he is hopelessly indoctrinated in a hard left agenda that always leads to ruination wherever it has been tried. He believes it’s good because as like so many in the electorate he refuses to budge off his agenda no matter what is proven otherwise. I also personally believe he does not feel the laws pertain to him. That is my feeling as shown by his performance the last ten years. It is in his words and actions and guilt by association when you see who he has surrounded himself with. I do not believe in the agenda being put forward by the left, pure and simple. I do not believe in anything other than my country and the ideals she was founded under. As such, I cannot in good conscience support anything coming from this administration.

As you point out, there are crazies on both sides. Unfortunately at this time the vast majority of the hate is emanating from the left. Again, that’s just fact at this time.

I am a member of the Tea Party. I am not a disgruntled Republican however. I and most of us are disgruntled Americans! As I have said in the past, we are at this point because the electorate on both side chose to either not bother to vote or those that did couldn’t take the time to take their most sacred right responsibly! There is blame on both sides, don’t get me wrong. Doesn’t change the fact that everything being put forward by the left and RINOs is hastening the destruction of this country!

One word here as to the “ranting” of Rush and others. If the silent majority would in fact get off their asses, do their homework and wake and up to the disaster that is now our government and the loss of their liberties left and right, they’ll have to coin a new word other than ranting. As the left seems to feel the only way to defend their asinine policies is to out yell the other side, heaven forbid if the majority of Americans start sounding off. A hopeful pipe dream on my part I’m afraid as it appears that most in this country only give a damn about what the Government can give them, never realizing people like me don’t own them a damn thing.

You fought for our rights, a country that was founded by a revolution for those very rights. While I have no problem with the freedom of people to say what they want, I do have a problem with people of any ilk who refuse to speak out against the hate, lies and deceit that is now part of the public discourse. As I said, it can be bad from both sides, but in my 60 years I honestly do not recall not only anything like what is going on now, but I sure have never seen this kind of garbage coming from the sensible thinking right!

I do believe you love your country and as such, I find it even harder to understand your positions. As my assessment of Obama, that’s the conclusion I come to from his own words. Please do not take offense at this. I personally relish the discourse when I get the chance."

Rich sent a nice reply with no offense taken but of course, I had more to say.

“As long as I’m on one of my mini-tirades and please Rich, know this is not aimed at just you and the left, but everyone in this country, I want to add a few more things.
We the people sometimes do not pay attention to all that is going on, but once we open our eyes, we act. The hateful noise coming from the hard left at this time leads me to the following. I am hopeful this is the start of a second revolution that will restore our country’s soul. I’ve said before that we need a revolution but we are the only country that can have one that is done peacefully through that ballot box. As to the Tea Party, my feelings are well known but apparently need repeating!

It is apparent beyond all doubt that the establishment on both sides are deathly afraid of the so called Tea Party (and thus the electorate in general) and they well should be! For those of you who prefer to live in a cave, the Tea Party from my view is not just about returning to conservative principles. The people who are aligning themselves behind this movement are looking for so much more. We are looking for men and women of principle! We want representatives that obey the will of the people, not their leaders or their own power lust! We want a return to the bedrock principles this country was founded on! We sure as hell do not want to be told we are racists, hate mongers or all the other names we are called just because we disagree with the direction this country is being taken. We believe in free speech, not hate speech!

The Tea Party movement is not a fight for the heart and soul of the Republican party! A co-opted media led by a hard core left wing wanna be dictatorship government would want you to believe that it is in fact all about the Republicans. And they would be dead wrong! The Tea Party movement is a fight for the heart and soul of our country! It is a fight to return us to what made us the greatest country in the world! How sad that entrenched politicians on the right along with the tone deaf clowns on the left cannot or refuse to understand such a basic tenet!

Freedom comes at a price kids! Sit on your hands and take, take, take, you’ll lose everything! Take responsibility, work and earn your way, respect the rights of others to pursue those same goals and live as true Americans! Those who fought and died to make this melting pot the greatest country this world has ever known deserve that from all of us and if we act now, there is a chance to save it all. But time is running out and the fact that even now most of the current political class would rather punt and destroy our grandkid’s future is disheartening to say the least. Add the hate we now see and we are in free fall! “

Sarah, The Electorate And The Impending Doom

Folks, I apologize in advance for the rant that follows. As I started responding to a thread on another site, it hit me once again that the problem is all of us. Until we as a people realize that, we are in deep doo doo. The thread was on Flopping Aces, one of my favorite sites as it has frank open and sometimes some quite vicious discussions as to the issues. It concerned the absolutely marvelous speech Mrs. Palin made in Wisconsin the other day. My response was as follows.

Sarah is what she is and we are blessed to have her as a spokesman. One thing for sure, she has a set that this wishy washy poor excuse of a president wishes he had!

Having said that, it must be pointed out how so many of us on this site have in fact pointed out more than once that this catastrophe that is now our government and in turn the fiscal disaster we face is in fact the fault of every piece of S… politician of either party who has chosen to put their power lust at the forefront rather than what is right for the country! Entrenched RINO scum is every bit as responsible as is the Marxist/ Leninist wanna be dictator and his lemmings on the Democratic side. I and so many others on this and other sites have in fact pointed this out.

Being as the MSM, the Dems led by the President and the entrenched idiots both elected and appointed are on a “spend like hell, make sure the electorate is beholden to us” rush to disaster, it once again has to be pointed out that the problem is D.C. in general but the electorate also has to accept a major part of the blame. They as always choose the candy rather than accept the responsibility. As an example, it has been proven time and again that a robust economy, stimulated by lower taxes has resulted each time in higher revenues to the Treasury. Yet we continue to spend an average of 42 cents above every dollar taken in! And what do we get from our leaders?

Tax them more! We can’t stop ourselves so the hell with the public! Just be damned sure we are allowed to keep our power! Oh please MSM, make sure to keep the people ill informed so as to not jeopardize our phony baloney jobs! And the electorate, their heads firmly buried up their asses somehow keep electing these morons! Let someone speak against it they are either vilified by the opposition or as is the case ridicule from the MSM.

Those are the pure and simple facts, not all the rhetoric and caustic crap from the Ivans, Gregs and others of both sides who refuse to look beyond their own ideological idiocies! If I sound caustic or mad, I am.

Our country is going down the tubes and one seems to think nothing can be done. But there is a fix. It’s called revolution through the ballot box! We as a country must get rid of the garbage that is destroying us! We must take our country back. It is the responsibility of every citizen. We as an electorate are judge and jury. We must find these clowns guilty of the high treason they are committing that is leading this country to it’s doom! I’m dead serious about this!

It doesn’t take an elitist moron for one to see how screwed up we have become as to the very ideals that once made us what we were, the greatest country ever. Too many are now just selfish to the point they refuse remember they are Americans first!

Most folks on this site (as well as here on my site) have seen my rants and raves, so you know how strongly I feel about this. Just an hour ago, SandP downgraded the nation’s debt outlook to negative! And what did we get from the morons in the administration? “It was a political move!” As always, they refuse to acknowledge the truth choosing to point a finger rather than suggesting a real remedy.

As to Sarah and the others. The facts remain they will be slammed by not only the Commie leaning Leftists, but also their own party. As pointed out above there are far too many who in the end care only about the power. Hell, just look at Rove! Even now, he and other moderate (God, I want to gag on that) Republicans are leading the charge against anyone who does not toe the D.C. line!

This isn’t about just Sarah or Obama or any of the other crap anymore and hasn’t been for quite a while. This is about our country. The electorate had better come to it’s senses now. We are out of time!!!!@

Budget Follies and Whining Unions and Dems

Last week we witnessed another boondoggle effort by our leaders as to addressing the out of control budget deficit. We had a ballyhooed attempt at a compromise that in the end hardly cuts crap which in turn the very person who wants to spend the most started taking credit for cutting. Cutting what?! If one looks a t the following, we aren’t even talking 1% of spending outlays! Good God, we are talking incredible Bull S… here! Nothing else!

(Via the AP) A new budget estimate released Wednesday shows that the spending bill negotiated between President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner would produce less than 1 percent of the $38 billion in promised savings by the end of this budget year.

The Congressional Budget Office estimate shows that compared with current spending rates the spending bill due for a House vote Thursday would cut federal outlays from non-war accounts by just $352 million through Sept. 30. About $8 billion in immediate cuts to domestic programs and foreign aid are offset by nearly equal increases in defense spending.

When war funding is factored in the legislation would actually increase total federal outlays by $3.3 billion relative to current levels.
So after this fiasco of a vote and as I noted in my earlier post, POTUS declared certain things he signed into law do not pertain to him. So as it should be with a wanna be dictator. After that, we get the Paul Ryan budget. At last, an attempt in writing to address our country’s deficit and out of control spending. Is it perfect? Probably not. But it is a start. Nor according to POTUS, tha MSM and the Commie left however! No siree! The nasty conservatives want to kill seniors, children and completely lead us into Third World status, which by the way, the left has been doing quite nicely on their own.

Instead of leadership from POTUS however, we instead got one of the most hateful, ideological, partisan leftist leading speeches in the history of this great nation. Below are some great excerpts which say what I want to much more eloquently than I ever could!

From Krauthammer:

“I thought it was a disgrace,” he said. “I rarely heard a speech by a president so shallow, so hyper-partisan and so intellectually dishonest, outside the last couple of weeks of a presidential election where you are allowed to call your opponent anything short of a traitor. But, we’re a year-and-a-half away from Election Day and it was supposed to be a speech about policy. He didn’t even get to his own alternative until more than halfway through the speech. And when he did, he threw out numbers suspended in mid-air with nothing under them with all kinds of goals and guidelines and triggers that mean nothing. The speech was really about and entirely an attack on the [Rep. Paul] Ryan plan.”

Krauthammer offered up an example and showed in one scenario, the tax rates in Ryan’s plan were higher than what Obama’s own deficit commission had recommended.

“I’m going to give you one example of how dishonest it was – he went on and on how the Republicans want to steal from your grandma to lower taxes on the rich,” Krauthammer continued. “And he talked about the Bush tax cuts and how much he is going to stand on the bridge and oppose any extension which is what he knows how to do. He has done it over and over for the last six years. The Ryan plan is not about the Bush tax cuts. It transcends them. It’s what the deficit — what Obama’s own commission recommended, strip out loopholes and lower rates for everyone. It’s not about whether it’s the Bush rates or Clinton rates. It’s a whole new approach by which the Simpson-Bowles Commission recommended itself. In fact, Bowles had recommended in one of its scenarios of a high rate of 23 percent. Ryan is at 25 percent. Obama did this knowing that this is a way to play to his base. It was a speech that was quite remarkable in how demagogic it was and I say that with all due respect.”

Charles Krauthammer in many ways is a quiet man who speaks openly and plainly. My read on the above was it was as close as he would ever get to accusing POTUS as being a hypocritical run of the mill political bastard without saying it. The man is professional to a fault. I’m not! Next we hear from Herman Cain. A man along with Alan West I am admiring more and more every day!

From Herman Cain:

“President Obama’s address proved yet again that he values ideology over basic economics and leadership.

His budget employs his typical class warfare tactics, insisting on taxing America’s job creators into oblivion for what he deems “fairness.” In doing so, he makes clear his willingness to further cripple our economy in exchange for pushing his wealth redistribution agenda and abandonment of the free enterprise system.
President Obama also took the opportunity to blame everyone but his own administration for this economic disaster, shifting blame to the Bush administration, Congressional Republicans and America’s highest earners, neglecting his own administration’s reckless spending.

Instead of using this speech as an opportunity to preview a budget that could significantly pay down our mounting debt through meaningful spending cuts and entitlement reforms, he again insisted on saddling America’s job creators with an even heavier tax burden to pay down the debt. Meanwhile, Congressman Ryan proposed his own budget that reduces the national debt by $6 trillion without raising taxes on a single American family or business.

Most importantly, actions speak louder than words. President Obama claims that his budget proposal would cut $4 trillion in just 12 years. Can we really trust a man who vowed time and time again that his administration would cut the budget deficit in half, but instead, brought our budget deficits to record levels in just half a term in the White House?

Indeed, since President Obama just filed his re-election candidacy papers, Americans today got their first televised campaign speech for 2012: all talk, no leadership.”
Last but not least in this vain, I reprint an article from the Wall Street Journal. This is easily one of the best columns they have put out in years and says everything I want to say!

THE PRESIDENTIAL DIVIDER - reposted from The Wall Street Journal

Did someone move the 2012 election to June 1? We ask because President Obama's extraordinary response to Paul Ryan's budget yesterday—with its blistering partisanship and multiple distortions—was the kind Presidents usually outsource to some junior lieutenant. Mr. Obama's fundamentally political document would have been unusual even for a Vice President in the fervor of a campaign.

The immediate political goal was to inoculate the White House from criticism that it is not serious about the fiscal crisis, after ignoring its own deficit commission last year and tossing off a $3.73 trillion budget in February that increased spending amid a record deficit of $1.65 trillion. Mr. Obama was chased to George Washington University yesterday because Mr. Ryan and the Republicans outflanked him on fiscal discipline and are now setting the national political agenda.

Mr. Obama did not deign to propose an alternative to rival Mr. Ryan's plan, even as he categorically rejected all its reform ideas, repeatedly vilifying them as essentially un-American. "Their vision is less about reducing the deficit than it is about changing the basic social compact in America," he said, supposedly pitting "children with autism or Down's syndrome" against "every millionaire and billionaire in our society." The President was not attempting to join the debate Mr. Ryan has started, but to close it off just as it begins and banish House GOP ideas to political Siberia.

Mr. Obama then packaged his poison in the rhetoric of bipartisanship—which "starts," he said, "by being honest about what's causing our deficit." The speech he chose to deliver was dishonest even by modern political standards.

The great political challenge of the moment is how to update the 20th-century entitlement state so that it is affordable. With incremental change, Mr. Ryan is trying maintain a social safety net and the economic growth necessary to finance it. Mr. Obama presented what some might call the false choice of merely preserving the government we have with no realistic plan for doing so, aside from proposing $4 trillion in phantom deficit reduction over a gimmicky 12-year budget window that makes that reduction seem larger than it would be over the normal 10-year window.
.Mr. Obama said that the typical political proposal to rationalize Medicare's gargantuan liabilities is that it is "just a matter of eliminating waste and abuse." His own plan is to double down on the program's price controls and central planning. All Medicare decisions will be turned over to and routed through an unelected commission created by ObamaCare—which will supposedly ferret out "unnecessary spending." Is that the same as "waste and abuse"?

Fifteen members will serve on the Independent Payment Advisory Board, all appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. If per capita costs grow by more than GDP plus 0.5%, this board would get more power, including an automatic budget sequester to enforce its rulings. So 15 sages sitting in a room with the power of the purse will evidently find ways to control Medicare spending that no one has ever thought of before and that supposedly won't harm seniors' care, even as the largest cohort of the baby boom generation retires and starts to collect benefits.

Mr. Obama really went off on Mr. Ryan's plan to increase health-care competition and give consumers more control, barely stopping short of calling it murderous. It's hardly beyond criticism or debate, but the Ryan plan is neither Big Rock Candy Mountain nor some radical departure from American norms.

Mr. Obama came out for further cuts in the defense budget, but where? His plan is to ask Defense Secretary Bob Gates and Joint Chiefs Chairman Mike Mullen "to find additional savings," whatever those might be, after a "fundamental review." These mystery cuts would follow two separate, recent rounds of deep cuts that were supposed to stave off further Pentagon triage amid several wars and escalating national security threats.

Mr. Obama rallied the left with a summons for major tax increases on "the rich." Every U.S. fiscal trouble, he claimed, flows from the Bush tax cuts "for the wealthiest 2%," conveniently passing over what he euphemistically called his own "series of emergency steps that saved millions of jobs." Apparently he means the $814 billion stimulus that failed and a new multitrillion-dollar entitlement in ObamaCare that harmed job creation.

Under the Obama tax plan, the Bush rates would be repealed for the top brackets. Yet the "cost" of extending all the Bush rates in 2011 over 10 years was about $3.7 trillion. Some $3 trillion of that was for everything but the top brackets—and Mr. Obama says he wants to extend those rates forever. According to Internal Revenue Service data, the entire taxable income of everyone earning over $100,000 in 2008 was about $1.582 trillion. Even if all these Americans—most of whom are far from wealthy—were taxed at 100%, it wouldn't cover Mr. Obama's deficit for this year.

Mr. Obama sought more tax-hike cover under his deficit commission, seeming to embrace its proposal to limit tax deductions and other loopholes. But the commission wanted to do so in order to lower rates for a more efficient and competitive code with a broader base. Mr. Obama wants to pocket the tax increase and devote the revenues to deficit reduction and therefore more spending. So that's three significant tax increases—via higher top brackets, the tax hikes in ObamaCare and fewer tax deductions.

Lastly, Mr. Obama came out for a debt "failsafe," which will require the White House and Congress to hash out a deal if by 2014 projected debt is not declining as a share of the economy. But under his plan any deal must exclude Social Security, Medicare or low-income programs. So that means more tax increases or else "making government smarter, leaner and more effective." Which, now that he mentioned it, sounds a lot like cutting "waste and abuse."

Mr. Obama ludicrously claimed that Mr. Ryan favors "a fundamentally different America than the one we've known throughout most of our history." Nothing is likelier to bring that future about than the President's political indifference in the midst of a fiscal crisis.’

As long as we’re on the subject as to the President and his complete disdain for the common American citizen, I would like to point out the little letter that came from the Office of the White House Press Secretary. Can someone please tell me why the White House is shilling for the unions? Moron Alert! They are supposed to represent all of us! Not the leftist trash that is destroying the very fabric of this country. And for god’s sakes, I’m not talking about the everyday union member. I’m ranting at the leaders who openly steal your dues to promote their hard left Commie agenda! And that is exactly what is going on! The fact that the White House puts out this letter just proves how out of touch they are with the bed rock principles this country was founded on and in turn highlights their open disdain for the American people in general! When is this crap going to stop?

Trumka Statement on the President's Fiscal Policy Speech
By: Richard Trumka, AFL-CIO President

Today, President Obama gave a promise to America’s working people that he wouldn’t follow the path of the radical Republican fiscal agenda that leads to lost jobs and a national decline of standards. That commitment is essential at this crucial moment for children, students, seniors and everyone who hopes for a secure economic future.

The President also made clear that he understands why Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are so important to working people. The labor movement is equally clear that we oppose cuts to any of these critical programs – no matter who proposes them.

Above all, let us refocus our national energy and attention on job creation – because successful job creation is the key to making long-term deficit reduction both easier and more politically achievable.

The Republican budget proposal, by contrast, is simply a shameful wealth transfer from working people to corporate CEOs. It does not make a significant dent in the deficit. It is a fraud on the American people. Republican leaders in Congress have shown they want a massive cut in tax rates for the wealthy and for Wall Street, and they want the middle class and the poor to pay for it in various ways, including higher health care costs, hidden tax increases and cuts in essential programs. At a time of record unemployment, each cut to our nation’s budget threatens American jobs and the Republicans’ irresponsible cuts would eliminate hundreds of thousands of them.

Here’s the truth: We cannot have an honest conversation about the deficit until we return fairness to our tax system, and that includes addressing our medium and long term fiscal problems created by the $100 billion-a-year Bush tax cuts, as President Obama made clear today. But we also must close corporate tax loopholes in a way that raises additional net revenues. We must insist that corporations and the rich pay their fair share instead of shortchanging education, health care, technology and other investments in our future. President Obama does not yet have the balance right between spending cuts and new revenue. Without significant new revenues, we will just end up balancing the budget on the backs of the poor and the middle class.

The regressive and economically destructive plan of the Fiscal Commission Chairs is not a starting point. A number of groups on the Democratic side have come forward with plans and ideas that seek to restore fiscal health, tax fairness and investments in our future. Those ideas have to be the way forward to create an economy in which our children can thrive, with a renewed focus on creating good jobs.

Last but not least, I have my laugh for the day. Poor Nancy Pelosi is crying because she was left out of the budget negotiations in the exact same way the President and his party refused to include the Republicans in any way as they pushed their socialist healthcare plan and agenda down the throats of the American public! And The MSM actually is trumpeting her cause! These assholes refused to point out how the administration actually told the opposition to take a hike and now ant us to feel bad about how the Dems are being treated? This is indeed what I would call an Alfred E. Newman moment, except I’m afraid that even Mad Magazine couldn’t make this up! I found this on various sites and news agencies.

“To my Republican friends: take back your party. So that it doesn’t matter so much who wins the election, because we have shared values about the education of our children, the growth of our economy, how we defend our country, our security and civil liberties, how we respect our seniors. Because there are so many things at risk right now -- perhaps in another question I'll go into them, if you want. But the fact is that elections shouldn't matter as much as they do...But when it comes to a place where there doesn't seem to be shared values then that can be problematic for the country, as I think you can see right now.”

From the Washington Post:
“House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi complained Thursday her caucus was shut out of the negotiating process last week when congressional leaders and the White House hammered out a 2011 spending deal that avoided a government shutdown.
The California Democrat added she feels “no ownership” to the compromise.
“It’s pretty evident House Democrats were not a part of that agreement,” said Mrs. Pelosi during her weekly briefing with reporters at the Capitol. “The Republicans in the House, the Democrats in the Senate — the two majorities — they were the ones who had the votes so they have the strength to negotiate.”
“I feel no ownership of that or any responsibility to it, except that we don’t want the government to shut down.”

What a surprise. She’s so out of touch, she believes she should still be relevant! The amazing thing here is that the President and his propaganda arm are actually paying her lip service! How much more disgusting can they get in their stances and whining? One really wonders if there is a leader of any kind on the left and for that matter if the right has anyone who in the long haul has the balls to stand up and fight for what is left of our country!

Hypocrisy On Parade: Lies and Deceit

Before I get into the budget fiasco on my next post and what I consider a complete disconnect (I’m going to try and be civil today, not crass as I’ve been lately), I want to just throw a mention out there as to the lying hypocrisy practiced by the occupant ( I’m finding it to be an insult to the office addressing him as President) of the Oval Office.

First, we have him on an interview with George Stepanopolous in which he reveals a past vote cast for political reasons only along with a lame “Well, I was a new senator” excuse!

“As Obama revealed to George Stephanopoulos, he voted on the basis of what was politically expedient. In effect, he voted with his party to embarrass and make things difficult for George Bush.

In response to Stephanopoulos’ query on that vote, Obama said, “I think that it’s important to understand the vantage point of a Senator versus the vantage point of a . . . President. When you’re a Senator, traditionally what’s happened is this is always a lousy vote. Nobody likes to be tagged as having increased the debt limit for the United States by a trillion dollars. . . As President, you start realizing, “You know what? We–we can’t play around with this stuff. This is the full faith in credit of the United States.”

He then pled inexperience: ”And so that was just a example of a new Senator, you know, making what is a political vote as opposed to doing what was important for the country,” and had to add a plug for his unique honesty, ”And I’m the first one to acknowledge it.”

He pleads inexperience?! The man shows exactly what is wrong with Washington and politicians in general, that being their standings as prostitudes are in fact intact. But it doesn’t stop there, not with this clown! We have the following! In effect, he once again puts himself above the law and in turn into his perceived lordship position of self ordained dictator.

From Althouse and Jake Tapper:

One rider [to the bill] – Section 2262 -- de-funds certain White House adviser positions – or “czars.” The president in his signing statement declares that he will not abide by it.

“The President has well-established authority to supervise and oversee the executive branch, and to obtain advice in furtherance of this supervisory authority,” he wrote. “The President also has the prerogative to obtain advice that will assist him in carrying out his constitutional responsibilities, and do so not only from executive branch officials and employees outside the White House, but also from advisers within it. Legislative efforts that significantly impede the President's ability to exercise his supervisory and coordinating authorities or to obtain the views of the appropriate senior advisers violate the separation of powers by undermining the President's ability to exercise his constitutional responsibilities and take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”

Therefore, the president wrote, “the executive branch will construe section 2262 not to abrogate these Presidential prerogatives.”

In other words: we know what you wanted that provision to do, but we don’t think it’s constitutional, so we will interpret it differently than the way you meant it.
During his presidential campaign, then-Senator Obama was quite critical of the Bush administration’s uses of signing statements telling the Boston Globe in 2007 that the “problem” with the Bush administration “is that it has attached signing statements to legislation in an effort to change the meaning of the legislation, to avoid enforcing certain provisions of the legislation that the President does not like, and to raise implausible or dubious constitutional objections to the legislation.”

Then-Sen. Obama said he would “not use signing statements to nullify or undermine congressional instructions as enacted into law.”
Once again, his words and actions reek with hypocrisy! Again as I’m trying to be gentile here, I’ll omit my slant which roughly translates to B.S.! He openly claims legislation which he signed does not pertain to him! And one wonders why the American Presidency is now the laughing stock of the free world? Doesn’t it seem the world is happily watching as we regress into Third World status (something which the POTUS claims is being caused by those no good nasty Conservatives, not his Marxist/Leninist policies)?

The MSM of course refuses to take him to task on any of his lies or reversals. He has proven in his actions he will do what it takes to keep power and just the two examples cited above should prove that. Not only does he think he is above the law, but he actually feels he has the right to lie too and deceive the electorate. It seems he sees himself as a king of some sort and heaven forbid if one questions him! I for one am tired of it. My country does not deserve this!

Budget, State and Foerign Policy Lunacy!

There is just so much I want to comment on today, I don’t know where to start! So bear with me kids. It’s going to be a long one! LOL!

I suppose the best place to begin today would be with the budget. We have the President and the main media morons claiming “leadership” as to last weeks fiasco. It’s almost enough to make me puke.

Lost in all of this is the fact that one hardly hears any mention of the Dems failure to pass the budget last year as required. From the lying sack of crap in the White House to the propaganda industry they control, it's not their fault! How so many in the public refuse to recognize the failure on the Dems part is just an indication of how indoctrination in the schools combined with the welfare society these scum bags on both sides of the aisle is destroying the very fabric of this great country! Having said that, here are a few snippets I’ve stumbled across in the last few days.

From various sources:
The federal debt increased $54.1 billion in the eight days preceding the deal made by President Barack Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.) and House Speaker John Boehner (R.-Ohio) to cut $38.5 billion in federal spending for the remainder of fiscal year 2011, which runs through September.

Again from various sources but something I feel is true:
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said Sunday that White House senior adviser David Plouffe is not being honest when he says that President Barack Obama has been leading the discussion on cutting taxes and reducing the deficit.
“We’ve had to bring this president kicking and screaming to the table to cut spending,” Cantor said on “Fox News Sunday.” “I then hear they’re going to present a plan as to how to address the fiscal situation…. In my opinion, It’s really hard to believe what this president is saying.”

A little headline I found. I’m not sure if it should be in the joke department or the garbage: "George Soros Says The US Should Take On More Debt And Not Be Obsessed With Budget Cuts"

And there is this By The Prowler in the American Spectator:

No one can say that President Barack Obama and his administration weren't thinking of the American people during the budget standoff with Republicans. Their inconvenience was very much on his mind.
According to White House sources, in the weeks leading up to last week's push for a budget deal, the President approved plans that had the White House and federal agencies looking at every federal government resource that entailed public interaction, and whether it could be shut down during a closure of the government -- even if under normal government closures those resources would have or could have remained open.

"The goal was to inflict as much inconvenience and pain on the American public and lock them into supporting the Administration's perspective on the budget fight," says a White House source. "It was our nuclear option, but we saw how a government shutdown under Gingrich just destroyed Republican standing with the public, and we felt we could achieve that kind of damage and more, even if we really didn't have to."

For example, a number of websites that provide the public with information about everything from Social Security options to veterans services, even public-private educational websites operated by the Smithsonian, would have been shut down by the Obama Administration had a government closure taken place Saturday morning. "Those sites don't even involve government employees to operate, but we were going to shut them down anyway just to hit home the right message with the public," says the White House aide.

White House sources say some agencies, like the Smithsonian, which manages a number of the museums and Washington attractions tourists prize most during their visits, pushed back on shutting down the websites, but were overridden by the White House.
While about 800,000 federal employees might not have gone to work on Monday, the White House did have options to ensure that visitors to Washington got at least some of their tax-dollars worth. For example, the Smithsonian could have been identified as a federal program requiring "essential personnel," so that public-facing employees, such as security guards, docents, and exhibit managers, would be present to enable tourists to visit the museums. Also, museum employees covered by private foundation grants for specific exhibits could have been deployed. But the Obama Administration shot down all those plans, putting in place a draconian government shutdown plan.

"Basically, making life easy for the American public was not something that would have helped us," says another White House aide. "We controlled the executive branch and the federal environment. How could we basically do what would have been great for tourists, and then have media reports showing business as usual in Washington for tourists that undercut our arguments and our fight?"

First, the Soros thing is beyond amazing! He would have us piss away our entire future and spend nothing other than the phony money this lost in space government is printing! The sad part is, in listening to the talking points being put forward by President Bozo’s henchmen, he wants to take a scalpel rather than an axe to the budget and invest! Invest, for you moonbeam lobbies out there is their way of saying “spend like hell more of what we don’t have”. After all, our kids and grandkids are going to be stuck with it!

How about this for a start? $200 billion in spending on redundant programs and useless government employees! And I don’t want to hear the crying about these folks loosing their jobs. They aren’t doing anything space cadets! Some legitimate estimates that go as high as 25% in waste and funds that cannot even be accounted for! And let’s not forget NPR,CPB, Planned Parenthood and any other entity that if the public wants it, let them support it themselves (and for you libbies out there, this also means programs supported by the entrenched Rep. scumbags as well. I am after all an equal opportunity disser when given the chance)! I could go on and on. The point is a $38 billion cut for the rest of the fiscal year is just another slap in the American people’s face!

As we are now seeing our leader, you know, the one who had his ass against the wall and will be more than happy to abandon his Soviet style agenda only long enough so as to keep his sorry ass position. Not only is this clown taking credit for basically nothing, but he’ll use it to show he “is listening and thus deserves re-election! Anyone who is foolish enough to even remotely believe this clown has changed his stripes is either stone cold dumb or completely ideologically brain dead! Even if he pays the right some lip service, the moment he’s assured another 4 years, he will finish forcing this country into Soviet style government. That is and always has been his mantra as evidenced by his own words, actions and associates! In my book, guilty as charged!

The vilification of Paul Ryan has already started as well as the scare tactics by the left! As evidenced by the media slant, they are going to paint the right as extremists. Yet as evidenced above "The goal was to inflict as much inconvenience and pain on the American public and lock them into supporting the Administration's perspective on the budget fight," And they call this leadership from the President? More like stone cold treason in my book and if nothing else, it once again shows the utter disdain this elitist asshole and his minions have for the American public!

Next, a quick comment as to the farce going on in Wisconsin. As one now knows, a conservative in the end won the Supreme Court election. There was an issue that was resolved before the results were sent out to the press, something that the Union owned left is choosing to not disclose.

It has to be noted that a major Democrat who participated in the vote count and the subsequent discovery of the 7,500 omitted votes validated that it was an honest error and approved the final vote tally. She is acknowledged by many people from both parties as a lifelong union member, a Democrat and as honest as they come!

Every now and then an honest Democrat appears! Kudos Ramona Kitzinger! Your party could learn a thing or two from you!

Shouldn’t be too long now before the scum on the left starts demonizing another one of their own now, should it? After all, in the union owned Democratic Party, having someone actually tell the truth or show some moral backbone is tantamount to treason, isn’t it?

In the “You can’t make this crap up” segment of today’s post, we have the following.:

“Arab League Chief Amr Moussa said the organization will ask the UN to impose a no-fly zone over Gaza, which Israel has pounded with air strikes in response to rocket fire... "the Arab bloc in the United Nations has been directed to ask for the convention of the Security Council to stop the Israeli aggression on Gaza and impose a no-fly zone."

One cannot make this crap up! Get yourself attacked but do not under any circumstance defend yourself. Or better still, make damn sure Israel is treated as the pariah we, the Muslim world say it is! Seems to be what they're saying.
As this moronic proposal winds its way through the farce known as the U.N., I’m wondering what our Anti-Israeli President will have to say. One guess is he’ll be leading the charge to shut down Israel’s right to defend themselves from the murderous bastards of Hamas!

Last but not least for sure is what should be the laugh for the day except for the fact that not only are these idiots serious, but I would be deathly afraid that this Commie bum (and yes, as I’ve said before I do believe in my heart he is all of that) would actually be stupid enough to allow something like this:
From the Telegraph:

A top Kremlin official has told the United States Russia wants “red button” rights to a new US-backed missile defense system for Europe, a move that would allow it to influence the shield’s day-to-day operational use.

Sergey Ivanov, Russia’s deputy prime minister, made the controversial demand during a visit to the United States where he met with top officials including Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State.

“We insist on only one thing,” he said of the nascent US-backed missile defense shield. “That we are an equal part of it.”
“In practical terms, that means that our office will sit for example in Brussels and agree on a red-button push to launch an interceptor missile, regardless of whether the missile is launched from Poland, Russia or the UK.”

Blackhawks Back To Defend Lord Stanley's Cup!!!!

Before I get off on my tirades for the day on my next post, I would like to point out that my beloved Blackhawks have made it into the playoffs, albeit through the back door. All records are even now and they’re getting their injured players back. Big hopes as always! One other comment on this!
Last night I watched a great hockey game. The reason I mention this (not only because the Stars loss got my beloved Blackhawks into the playoffs) is because quite honestly, I'm at the point where I could care less about the other three sports, especially football and baseball. The way these sports have become what they are on the professional level has pretty much destroyed them as an enjoyable attraction.

Now back to the Minnesota Wild. In the other sports we hear all the garbage as to the "professionalism" of the players, the integrity of the teams and all the other B.S. Yet let a team in any other sport be eliminated from contention they will at once fold up their tents and just go through the motions. Get it out of their hair and go home, the hell with the fans, you know, those who pay through the yang to watch Professionals!

Last night, we saw a team going nowhere play with pride! We hear it all the time from the talking heads, but we never see it! Last night we did. I salute the Minnesota Wild Hockey team. They could have laid back and helped eliminate a bitter rival. They didn't! This is a lesson not only in pride, but in doing your job to the best of your ability every time, everyday! I would not think twice about using that team as an example of what sports and sportsmen should be for my grandkids! I cannot honestly say that about any of the other sports!

Random Comments: The Scum That Is D.C. Politicians!

Today, I am beyond mad. We are being told so many lies by this administration and government in general. We are told a legislative branch that had an insurmountable majority couldn’t pass a budget due to the minority blocking them. We’re being told the economy is improving. We’re being told inflation is minimal while fuel and food prices are going through the roof! We can’t drill for oil here, but we can give money to Brazil to do it! All of this spite aimed towards the American people continues unabated while the powers that be happily go about the destruction of our country!

First today, I have to comment on the pathetic performance art being put forward as budget negotiations! Can anyone out there tell me what those idiots do not understand about the fact that spending must be cut?

Moron Alert! The President is being portrayed by the scum in the MSM as being the “adult figure” as to the budget negotiations! What am I missing here? This guy has been AWOL from day one! He sure as hell hasn’t bothered to do any leading on the subject, that’s for damned sure! He and his Democratic cohorts had an insurmountable majority yet chose to not pass a budget last year. He’s out there with the best of them blaming the other side, but he sure as hell isn’t blaming himself! Leading? Adult Figure? The man wouldn’t know leadership if it crawled up his rear end!

Lost in all of this is the fact that one hardly hears any mention of the Dems failure to pass the budget last year as required. From the lying sack of crap in the White House to the propaganda industry they control, it's not their fault! And let’s not forget that space cadet Harry Reid! Today, he’s whining about the fact that the cherry Blossom Festival might be jeopardized! How so many in the public refuse to recognize the failure on the Dems part is just an indication of how indoctrination in the schools combined with the welfare society these scum bags on both sides of the aisle is destroying the very fabric of this great country!

As if the lies about the budget aren’t enough, we have the wonderful lost kids in government telling us we’ve turned the corner! The economy is recovering fine! Ask them. They’ll tell you so!

Joke of the year, but not funny. It’s being reported there were only 382,000 new unemployment claims. The economy added 216,000 jobs last week. The economy is turning around!!! Everything is fine now! Trust your government. Their tax and spend policies haven’t destroyed business! It’s turning around! Must be true! Katie said so!!

OOPS! Moron alert!!!!! If I’m looking at the weekly figures correctly (after all I am a dumb Neanderthal conservative and not a “learned head up my ass elite Ivy League genius” like our hallowed leader), that translates to a net loss of 166,000 jobs! That has been the same pattern every reported period, yet we get the “things are turning around” lies from the no counts in D.C.!

Someone has some “splainin” to do Lucy! The lies continue to pour out as the country goes down in flames, a pattern we have seen way to often in past failed hard left Socialist dictatorships! Someone has to start listening to the truth before it’s too late!!

A comment as to the insane murders going on in Afghanistan that were caused, according to the Muslim wackos by the idiot Terry Jones. (Note here: My son-in law is over there and unfortunately saw 2 children he had grown quite close too killed by these morons! He is upset with them as well as Jones, but like he said to me, the free speech here at home should never be used by ideological morons to justify this kind of moral outrage: His words)

Terry Jones is not responsible for this (and yes I concede he’s an idiot). Unfortunately as usual we have the “America should feel guilty about everything” legion out there that refuses to put responsibility on the shoulders of those who deserve it, namely the murderous radicals blinded by religious or cult like fury! I posted this on another site a couple of days ago, but it fits right in here also.
“And yet we have people here and in other countries informing us we should not and will not be allowed to exercise our constitutional freedoms under the guise of hate speech, intolerance or whatever one wants to call it! Burn a Koran, you will be charged with a hate crime. Burn the bible, that’s fine! Criticize Mohamed, you are a hater. Piss Jesus? That’s art!

Why isn’t everyone in this country outraged? LOL! I’m assuming I’ve posted enough here so one can imagine the word outraged doesn’t quite fit what I feel about this nonsense !

One doesn’t have to agree with the Terry Jones (the man is just another self-centered religious bigot) of the world but we sure as hell have to defend his right to do as he did. If I’m supposed to turn the other cheek when some commie bastard burns my flag, I sure as hell need to do the same in this and any other case! As much as I hate to admit it, he is correct on one thing. The idiocy we are now seeing over there does prove one of his points. The intolerance of these religious fanatics is beyond reason.

One other thing here as long as I’m on my soapbox. It is high time the people of this country stand up for their ideals. If I want to draw a satiric cartoon of Mohamed with his virgin harems, that is my right in this country. Yet, we have a rabid element starting with our President that wants to take that and other sacred rights away form us! We have a press who is afraid to offend and as such will not publish the truth about so many things. Personally, I don’t care who worships what! But I sure as hell care when one infringes upon another, especially with violence (Irish take note. Same idiocy there as I’m an equal opportunity disser. I mention this because once again religious fanatics are setting off bombs in Ireland. Same idiocy in my book!).”

Another comment. While the budget impasse has been going on, our erstwhile leader decided he had to go speak at an event with that wonderful racist Al Sharpton. Gotta take care of what’s important I guess. The hell with the country’s deficit problems! Priorities!

Gotta be careful here. I was taken to task on another website by someone who didn’t have the balls to comment on my site (I don’t and won’t block anyone. I want the feedback) as being a hard core white racist! My, crime? Using the President’s words. actions and associations against him in my assessments and comments as to his sad sack administration. Whenever one points out inconsistencies (can’t use the words “outright lies and hypocrisy”), I and others are branded racist. If one points out the shameful actions by the DOJ as to the Black Panther voter intimidation, we are branded racist. If one points out the need for self responsibility rather than earning one’s way, we are branded racist. And on and on!

Any way one looks at this, if they will just open their mind and actually look and listen, read and study, and take their so called leader at face value as to his words and actions, the end result is clear. They would have to come to the conclusions I and others have. I believe in guilt by association, by one’s words and one’s actions. Obama is exactly what he has always been. A Marxist/Socialist/ Anti-Israeli/Anti-American ideals hard lefty. Pure and simple. He will lie and ignore the laws of the land to achieve his set goals. And since he and his lackeys have no sound basis as to explain their wayward actions, they and their followers will continue to throw whatever they can put there to turn the attention away from their deceit. And the racism charge will always be number one. I know. I’ve been branded as such for simply pointing out the facts!

And it gets even better! Saw this headline on a site:

Despite Huge Fuel Cost Increases, Networks Criticize Airfare Hikes

And what do we have in the media? They are taking the air to task for raising their prices. The hell with the fact that fuel prices have almost doubled as this President apparently wanted! After all, he said so in his campaign. And of course, just the other day he chastised a citizen at a meeting telling him if he’s that worried about the prices the citizen should trade in his gas guzzler for a more efficient car. Once again, our chief loony tune had to talk down to a citizen who is worried about being priced out of even being able to go to work. The hell with the fact that this person didn’t even say what he was driving. He just had the veracity to question his President, you know, the person this citizens taxes are paying the salary on.

I found the following on Alan Caruba’s “Warning Signs” site. As always, he hits it on the head! Not really much I can add here without going off on a tirade so I’ll let it speak for itself!

“In two years, the nation has accumulated debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as its entire prior history since the day George Washington took office. In January 2009, when President Obama was sworn into office, the national debt was $10.627 trillion. Today it is $14.052 trillion and rising.

The leadership that the world has long looked to America to provide has dissipated. The nations of the West, in particular the European socialist nations, have also spent themselves into penury. Portugal is the latest to cry out for help. Greece, Ireland, Spain, all once among the great powers, have drained their coffers with cradle-to-grave assurances that the government would always pick up the tab.
After two years in which every regulatory obstacle, including an illegal “moratorium” on deep water drilling for oil was imposed, the price of West Texas crude oil went from $38.74 a barrel to $99.02. Other commodities, soybeans, sugar, and corn have all seen similar increases. The price of corn has more than doubled in just twelve months.

America has enormous reserves of oil, coal, and natural gas. It has long been a giant agricultural economy, but all this potential wealth is being throttled by men and women in the Obama administration who think Americans must be forced to change their driving and eating habits. In a consumer-driven economy, they want Americans to consume less.

When President Obama was sworn in, there were 2,600,000 long-term unemployed. Today there are 9,193,000 Americans in that category. People living in poverty in America have, in just two year’s time, gone from 39,800,000 to 43,600,000. This occurred during a time when massive “bailouts” were undertaken by the government. They are now widely regarded as failures.”

Finally, I ran across this little gem. As we have witnessed the Union thuggery in Wisconsin and around the country with the MSM of course pushing the union side. Either way, it’s not the least bit surprising that a union morn would liken his job to slavery. After all, when one watches some of these government employees do their job, it sure seems like they’re being paid to do nothing! Heaven forbid they’d actually have to work!

From Right Wing News: Warner Todd Huston:
“John Gage, national president of the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), recently said at the National Press Club that if there is a government shut down and his member’s luxurious paychecks don’t get paid out on time, he’d use using the 13th Amendment as his legal basis.

The 13th Amendment essentially ended slavery and indentured servitude in 1865 at the close of the Civil War. Gage says that having to work during a government shut down and if their paychecks are not issued in a timely manner, then these poor, poor government union members are somehow just like the slaves.”
