Looking for Reason

The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn't so. – Ronald Reagan

More blatant media bias on CNN and Hypocrisy from the left


As if we needed any more evidence of the liberal bias of the mainstream media, one need only look at this recent CNN report on Sarah Palins’ recent visit to a Chick-Fil-A restaurant. In case you’ve been in a coma for the past month, Chick-Fil-A is under fire by the left for “Anti-Gay” remarks by it’s CEO. As for the bias, the CNN report on Palin is preceded by the song “Stupid Girls” by Pink, played I’m sure, in case you didn’t already dislike the conservative spokeswoman, such background music should help mold your opinion. I wonder what the chances are that their next report about Joe Biden will be accompanied by Keith Urban’s song “Stupid Boy”?  

You see the liberal media, the bleeding hearts who get all their information from them, and of course the gay rights types, are screaming about the anti-gay remarks made by the CEO of the successful restaurant chain. The hoopla is all centered on remarks made during a Fathers Day radio interview with Chick-Fil-A CEO, Dan Cathy. Mr. Cathy’s crime? He spoke out about traditional marriage.

The truth is, and you won’t get it from the MSM, is that Mr. Cathy didn’t say a single word about gay marriage, homosexuality or anything of the like, he simply stated the following…

“We are very much supportive of the family – the biblical definition of the family unit,” he said. “We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that. … We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.”

But to hear it from the press, the gay rights types and their ilk, he was bashing gays and gay marriage. I think his biggest mistake was in believing that he lives in a country where he can share his beliefs and operate his company on biblical principles without becoming the object of hatred from the left. How foolish of him to believe that “tolerant liberals” would allow this diversion from their prescribed rules of behavior without a scene. Doesn’t he realize that liberals are only tolerant of others if you don’t disagree with them? For a crowd who loves to lecture the rest of us on tolerance, these hypocrites show none toward anyone who has the audacity to make statements that they disagree with.

For these leftists, freedom of speech and religion (or lack thereof) is only for them. To disagree with their views is to commit suicide by press, but I think Chick-Fil-A will get the last laugh. They couldn’t possibly afford the free advertising they are getting over this silly controversy, and in the end, I believe that the vast majority of Americans believe in the same values Mr. Cathy does.

Remember “Anyone but Obama in 2012!”

Is This A Joke?


After over three and a half years we should all be used to Obama blaming George Bush for every ill plaguing the country. Afterall he inherited the problem right? One of Obama’s lackeys has now come out and is blaming Romney for continued high unemployment. Wow and he hasn’t been nominated yet, much less elected, yet AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka whose union endorses Obama, said during a statement last Friday that “The cruel reality is Mitt Romney and his Republican allies in Congress are willing to sabotage the recovery in the hope of scoring political points against the President” This would be funny if it were not so sad and completely typical of Obama and his supporters.

He was complaining about the slow job growth and the fact that (the official) unemployment rate remains at 8.2% which is artificially low and is actually well over 10%, but the Labor Department doesn’t like to count those who’ve simply given up even trying to find a job. The reality is that Trumka and his ilk blame the republicans in congress for holding up Obama’s “American Jobs Act”, and fighting for tax cuts for the rich instead. As I pointed out in my previous post today, supply-side tax cuts result in far more prosperity for everyone and far more job creation, than stupid government spending programs like the failed stimulus package of 2009, or this latest bill, which only continue to be an anchor around the necks of the real job creators in this country. 

 Remember the only jobs the government can create are those within government and who pays those salaries? That’s right scooter, you and me, the productive tax payers, and who benefits from the boondoggles like the stimulus and the American Jobs Act? The lazy, the corrupt and the friends of Obama, but I repeat myself.

Here’s Mr. Trumka’s full statement if you have the stomach for it…

For America’s working people, the economy is simply not delivering right now. The trend of slow job growth is both frustrating and heartbreaking. The economy added only 80,000 net new jobs last month – not nearly enough to bring unemployment down and fuel a robust recovery.

Republicans in Congress have responded to a massive jobs shortage and weak economy with obstructionism and dishonesty. They have repeatedly blocked public investment that would create jobs and spur growth, including President Obama’s American Jobs Act. They have held up countless necessary bills, including relief for student loans, by insisting on yet more tax cuts for the richest one percent and preserving existing tax breaks for outsourcers. They push a politics of austerity, which here and in Europe is strangling our economy.

Republican priorities are more tax cuts for the richest one percent and more layoffs for teachers and firefighters. The cruel reality is Mitt Romney and his Republican allies in Congress are willing to sabotage the recovery in the hope of scoring political points against the President.

Cutting back on policies that provide relief for millions of working families is not just bad policy, it’s immoral. Working people are willing to take the lead to get our economy back on track, but they need our policymakers to do their part. By investing in jobs, reconnecting wages to productivity growth and ending policies that ship jobs overseas, we can turn things around. The labor movement is committed to pushing for these deeper changes and reforms that bring us together and make America strong.

There you have it folks, just keep this in mind as the November elections approach, do you want more of the failed policies of the past three and a half years. More of the same old BS like that stated above, or do you want real change and a return to the ideals that made America the greatest country ever brought forth on the face of this Earth? More Robin Hood economics that can’t possibly sustain itself, or a return to liberty and individual initiative and responsibility? More Nanny State, “We know what’s best for you”, or the freedom to make your own choices, decide what’s best for you and your family and spend your money how you want, not how some DC bureaucrat thinks you should?

If I may make a suggestion, consider this… Don’t vote for one single incumbant,  Democrat, Republican, whatever. Vote every single incumbant out of office and send a clear message that we’re sick and tired of politics as usual and we aren’t going to take it anymore. Let’s tell them all… YOU’RE FIRED! So what if we get a bunch of inexperienced new comers, if they don’t know “How it’s always been done” then maybe it we’ll get done our way.

Obama “Here’s Your Sign”


A popular comedian, Bill Engvall, uses a catch line of “Here’s your sign” the basic premise of which is that stupid people should be given signs that say “I’m Stupid” in order to warn the rest of us not to put any faith in nor lend any credence to them.

While the left holds Obama up as a messiah and some sort of brilliant thinker, I on the other hand have long felt that he should be given one of Engvall’s signs, but this latest example only convinces me more of that fact. While campaigning at an event in Poland, Ohio last Friday resident Obama said that supply-side economics was a “theory” that it “has never worked.” Oh really? Well Mr. Obama either you’re a bald faced liar or your stupid, I’m honestly not sure which is more true.

I suppose if you believe that the Obama Stimulus package was a wonderful success, then you would believe this drivel too. In reality, it was billions of tax dollars wasted and the promised benefits never seen. Obama is flat-out wrong about the Kennedy & Reagan economic policies, they weren’t just theory that didn’t work, history proves it. In the nineties, the liberals were screaming, as they still do today, that Supply-Side Economics” was a failed experiment, however a policy study by the CATO institute published in 1996 shows the real truth. You can read the entire report [here], but I’ll synopsize it for you.

  1. Real economic growth averaged 3.2 percent during the Reagan years versus 2.8 percent during the Ford-Carter years and 2.1 percent during the Bush-Clinton years.
  2. Real median family income grew by $4,000 during the Reagan period after experiencing no growth in the pre-Reagan years; it experienced a loss of almost $1,500 in the post-Reagan years.
  3. Interest rates, inflation, and unemployment fell faster under Reagan than they did immediately before or after his presidency.
  4. The only economic variable that was worse in the Reagan period than in both the pre- and post-Reagan years was the savings rate, which fell rapidly in the 1980s. The productivity rate was higher in the pre-Reagan years but much lower in the post-Reagan years.

The report also shows that tax cut policies instituted by JFK before his assassination, had benefits in the late 1960’s that were even better than those seen in the Reagan years. It also debunked several popular “Reaganomics” lies such as “The rich get richer and the poor get poorer” the truth is that from 1980 to 1989 while the richest 5% saw their piece of the income pie raise from 16.5 to 18.3%, or just under 11%, the number of Americans making less than $10K per year in 1980 dropped from 66 to 62.6 million by 1989, a drop of 5%. Those making between $10K and $50K per year rose from 9.9 to 15.6 million, an increase of 60%. Further, those making less than $75K per year rose from 3 to 5.5 million an increase of 83%. So the truth is that the middle class fared much better than the poor or the rich, but everyone made out better. Isn’t Obama always claiming he’s looking out for the poor and middle-class? Then here’s the better path than his lame cry of “Tax the rich”.

His highness Obama is so far out of touch with reality, that it now surpasses being just a matter of policy disagreement. Remember this dunce recently said that the “Private sector is doing fine”. I suppose as long as it’s someone else’s money, then he’s all about playing Robin Hood and telling us we’re doing fine, but in reality he’s just buying the poor vote by promising that which is not his to give.  All the while the failed policies of the left continue to hurt and enslave those they claim to be helping.

So Mr. Obama, giving you the benefit of the doubt between being stupid or just being a pathological liar… HERE’S YOUR SIGN.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!


The Declaration of Independence

Today in honor of the 236 anniversary of the above document, I am parting from my usual political opining, and posting this as a reminder of what it is we’re celebrating today. What follows is the complete text of the Declaration of Independence. I will add a few thoughts at the end, but please read this today of all days and make it a point to do so every year on this day. Without further delay…

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Some final thoughts…   Read those last couple of lines again, they pledged to each other their Lives, their Fortunes and their sacred Honor. I think Walter Lippmann, said it best when he said “He has honor if he holds himself to an ideal of conduct though it is inconvenient, unprofitable, or dangerous to do so.” Those signers pledged their “Sacred Honor” knowing that doing so made them traitors to the crown of England. Do you have honor as defined above? Would you be willing to sign the Declaration today? I know I would, and the day may soon come when it will be necessary for people of honor to once more stand shoulder to shoulder and remind the tyrants you tread on our liberties who’s the  boss.

This is flying below my stars & stripes today.

 

RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!


Every time I think that the morons running the federal government couldn’t be any more stupid, they surprise me again. Thanks to the Obama Department of Homeland Security’s latest directives, when a border patrol agent is confronted by an armed aggressor in public, they are now being directed to “Run awayand hide or throw things at the gunman”. [Read more here]

 Are you kidding me? Throw things at some mutant with a gun? How many more casualties like Brian Terry will the Border Patrol rack up with a policy like this? It’s bad enough that Obama has surrounded himself with Radicals, Socialists, Communists, and Domestic Terrorists, to name but a few of his friends and advisors. But these morons are so PC and afraid of upsetting the flow of illegal voters from south of the border, that they are putting these agents at a serious disadvantage and further endanger the civilians that these agents should be able to protect.

 God knows that if I’m walking down the street somewhere and some drug smuggler opens up with an AK-47 I want those well-trained rock throwers close by to defend me and those around me. I’m surprised that the DHS doesn’t just direct the agents to turn in their weapons and save the taxpayers the cost of all that ammo. I mean why pay for guns & ammo if they can’t use them? Perhaps Ms. Napolitano would prefer these agents carry water pistols, and of course for those particularly dangerous incursions, they would be allowed a Super Soaker in the trunk of their vehicle. Hey… it makes as much sense as this latest directive.

 The seemingly unending string of moronic, despotic and unconstitutional crap that has sprung forth from the Obama administration this past three and a half years should convince any reasonable person to vote for “Anyone but Obama” this November. I saw a bumper sticker awhile back that should be widespread it said… “That Obama Sticker on your car should say… I’M STUPID!” I couldn’t agree more.

The Dictator Obama does it again!


Is anyone out there surprised? Obama has once more displayed his arrogance, and contempt for the constitution and the rule of law. Within hours of the Supreme Court ruling that upheld the core portion of the Arizona Immigration law allowing law enforcement to check the immigration status of suspected illegal immigrants, Obama has once more decided that his administration is above the law and has announced that it will not enforce it!

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said that the Obama administration was “suspending a key program that allowed state and local law enforcement to enforce federal immigration law.” Of course this is not the first time Obama has taken this course, with every law or ruling that goes against his personal agenda, he simply ignores it, refuses to enforce it or as with his June 15th executive order, makes law where none existed before, something even he has admitted that he lacks the constitutional authority to do!  [See him here] With his continued flagrant disregard for the Constitution that he swore an oath to “protect and defend” how can anyone even consider electing this wannabe dictator again?

The SCOTUS is scheduled to rule tomorrow on his signature bill commonly known as Obamacare, if as most suspect it will be at least gutted, and hopefully overturned completely, will he once again choose to circumvent the court and order the Department of Health and Human Services to push forward with implementation? My bet is yes he will, let’s watch and see.

It’s time to bring our troops home.


First, to those of you who have asked if I’ve given up this blog, the answer is no. I was gone for nearly a week the first of the month, then had so many other things going that I just didn’t have time to keep up with my sources and then write this blog. But after reading a story this morning, I felt it was high time to get back to it.

An article in Tuesday’s Army Times (here) titled, “Combat warrants limit raids, cause worry over leaks” absolutely blew my mind. I have often said that what our military is asked to do these days is nothing more than be a policemen to the world. This article is just more proof of this fact. Now our troops must have warrants to conduct their operations? It’s obvious to me from the way the conflict in Afghanistan is going, that this country has lost its will and its know-how to fight and win a war. Requiring our troops to have warrants (issued by the Afghan government of course) before conducting patrols and raids is just plain insanity. Why not just put up signs announcing our intentions and give the enemy plenty of warning to set up a better defense?

The Afghan government has done nothing but proven itself to be totally corrupt organization, therefore the chance of our strategic planning being leaked to the very people we are looking for is almost assured. When you think back to World Wars I and II, we allowed the generals who knew what they were doing to conduct those wars as they found necessary to win. We fought on countless fronts and still won those wars in a matter of 4 and 6 years respectively. Since Vietnam, it’s the politicians in Washington and a bunch of dimwitted armchair generals who run these wars and ultimately lose them for us. Their silly rules of engagement and political correctness only unnecessarily drag these conflicts out to a decade or more and cost the lives of thousands of American soldiers for what usually amounts to nothing.

I will admit that in Iraq, we managed to topple a dictatorship and bring to justice perhaps the worst mass murderer since Adolf Hitler. Even there the loss of life was far worse than was necessary to accomplish the goal, had the generals been allowed to run the war instead of the politicians. Despite the fact that this country has completely forgotten how to fight a war to win, it is these same politicians who continually drag us into one after another. Virtually always resulting in heavy casualties to our troops and usually an overall lack of meeting the objectives that were stated in the first place. If we have no will to win, and our hands are tied by silly rules, then it’s time to exit and let the Afghan forces deal with their own problems and prevent the loss of any more American lives.

Ready for more corrupt liberal duplicity and stupidity?


Well here goes… but first I want to expand on the comments in an earlier post (The Liberal Mind, is it Political Madness?), I want to say that in addition to not believing that all liberals are stupid or crazy, I also do not believe that everyone with a liberal viewpoint is evil, corrupt or wants to destroy America. In fact have a number of close family members and friends who are on the opposite side of the political fence from me. These are smart caring people, I just believe that they listen to too much of the biased main stream media and are thinking too much with their hearts.

One of those to whom I am very close, as well as love and respect highly (but will not identify) said during a recent conversation about  my study of the founding documents and the constitution , that it was as if these documents were “inspired”.

I was actually quite struck by the comment considering that this person staunchly supports Barack Obama and his administration. While I, on the other hand, agree with Ted Nugent who said recently that if people can’t see that this administration is, “wiping its a** with the Constitution you’re living under a rock some place”. Even now I’m a bit perplexed that someone could believe the Declaration and Constitution were inspired and yet support an administration that clearly has no regard for those principles.

There are countless liberals in positions of power, leadership and influence or who just have a loud mouth and a mouthpiece like Michael Moore and Alec Baldwin, that spout rhetoric which is completely devoid of any semblance of intellectual honesty, logic or reason, yet act as though they speak from some lofty moral high ground.

While liberals claim to be the party of tolerance, they typically display none, toward those who disagree with them. They cry out for civility and co-operation while being rude, crude or divisive and completely against compromise unless it’s giving in to their will. They claim to be all about fairness, equality, and helping the poor or disenfranchised, while their policies do little toward those goals, and most often have the opposite effect.

The latest example is enveloping rocker Ted Nugent who during a speech at the NRA convention two  weeks ago not only gave the earlier quote, but said that “if Barack Obama becomes the president in November, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” Those on the left had a collective mental breakdown, and claimed that the statement is a threat of violence toward the resident.

I find this all quite laughable considering that no one over on the left was the least bit disturbed when in a campaign speech in June 2008 and again at a Philadelphia fundraiser in January 2011; Obama said “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Interesting rhetoric from a man who lectures on civil discourse, and doesn’t believe that free people should even be allowed to own guns.

DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz who continues to proudly display her partisan stupidity in public statements, has also ripped into Nugent’s comment, saying, “Mitt Romney surrogate Ted Nugent made offensive comments about President Obama and November’s elections this weekend that are despicable, deplorable and completely beyond the pale.”

Wow, really? Can anyone reading his statement please show me anything in it that amounts to a threat or has any violent overtone? I’m sorry I just don’t see it, and by the way neither did the Secret Service who interviewed Nugent about the comment less than a week later. Remember, it is a Federal crime for anyone to threaten Obama.

Los Angeles Times editorial writer Jon Healey told Democrats to relax, that Nugent is just a rock ‘n’ roller. “Nugent is no more a surrogate for Romney than the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. is for Obama,” Healy said, adding “Just because someone with a microphone urges people to vote for a candidate doesn’t make him or her a ‘surrogate’ for the campaign.” I wonder if the DNC Chairwoman has the brains to grasp that.

Nugent’s reply to Wasserman Schultz’s comment was simple, “By no stretch of the imagination did I threaten anyone’s life, or hint at violence or mayhem. Metaphors needn’t be explained to educated people.” In a radio interview on the Dana Loesch Show Nugent explained, “I’ve never in my life threatened anyone’s life. I am incapable of threatening anyone’s life because I’m about positive change.”  The liberals once more are attempting to make something controversial out of a comment made by a conservative voice with a following, larger than any on their side.

My interpretation of his comment was that he fears that as an outspoken critic of the Obama regime, that under an unrestrained second term, he might well be jailed as a domestic terrorist or be the victim of another of Obama’s “extrajudicial killings” like that of another U.S. citizen Anwar al-Awlaki.

So who’s right, the typical divisive ranting from the left, or a more reasoned explanation like the one I just gave? Considering Nugent’s statement that he has never threatened anyone in his life, and the fact that the Secret Service walked away considering the case closed, I guess once more logic and reason win out over the stupid rantings from the loud mouths on the left.

OMG, OBAMA ATE DOG MEAT!


So what?

As Americans we are repulsed by the thought of eating dogs, cats or even horses, but it is common place in other cultures. Hindu’s worship cows and likely find it repugnant that we eat them as a matter of course. When I was a teenager (before it was outlawed) I was given horse meat once, though unlike Obama I have no recollection of how it tasted or its toughness. The only memory I have is the surprise I felt when told what I had just eaten, and thinking it wasn’t bad.

Now someone has made an issue out of  the fact that in chapter two of his book Dreams from My Father  Obama says “I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy).”  Big deal!

My point is anyone who’s read my blog up till now knows that I have lost any respect I may have ever had for Barack Obama. I have also said that my point of writing this blog was to try to shed some reason on the topics of the day. So I have to ask, is this all the media and bloggers have to worry about these days? I have no desire to defend anything Obama has, is or will do, but there are mountains of issues to work with that are far more important than Obama eating dog meat as a kid. Let’s move on to some of those shall we?

The Tyrant in the White House


(This post was actually written a week ago, but I neglected to “Publish” it till now)

When will the people of America wake up and realize that Obama is leading us to the edge of a cliff and the gullible are following like lemmings ready to plunge off into the abyss of socialism? Their liberal hypocrisy is endless, and their desire to corrupt the very foundation of our once great nation is on a path to completion. We have a man in the White House who last October basically declared congress irrelevant when he said “We don’t have to wait for Congress, we’re just going to go ahead and act on our own,” while indicating that he planned to issue executive orders weekly for the remainder of the year. On average he did just that, issuing 9 Executive Orders between October 31 and December 19th, 2011.  In addition he has issued 7 more so far this year. In the span of only five months he has continued to usurp more unconstitutional power, sixteen times.

On April 2nd he likewise lashed out at the Supreme Court decrying that it is an “Unelected” body and chastising them for even considering the possibility that they might “overturn a duly constituted and passed law”.  So congress is irrelevant and the unelected Supreme Court shouldn’t even think about overturning unconstitutional laws, which he worked so hard to get passed. I ask you, what is left? As I see it we now have a totalitarian state with Barack Obama as its supreme commander. Who needs three independent branches of government when we have the omniscient and omnipotent Barack Obama to tell us how to live, how to think, and what to buy?

 Can you name another leader who has managed to get the national media to follow in lock step, fawn over him as a messiah and cover any attempt to question his legitimacy? Has any other leader had school children being indoctrinated to sing songs about him? How about one who has written an autobiography that is used like a bible to promote his life and thinking? I can think of one, and that the risk of being dismissed as a quack, it was Adolph Hitler. I don’t expect you to take my word for it, or accept my point of view, I want you to use your own ability for critical thinking and look at the facts for yourself. Simply Google “Hitler’s rise to power” and see for yourself.

Take an honest look at the highlights of Hitler’s rise to power, look at the things he promised the people of Germany to put him in power in the first place. Then compare that to what Obama is doing, including his complete disrespect, or dare I say hatred, of Israel. He has bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, (and others) while denigrating the right of Israel to make its own choices in dealing with its neighbors and its enemies. He barely veils his support of Islam and Arab countries, and his disdain of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. For instance, remember when Obama told Netanyahu he wanted him to redraw his borders to the pre-1967 lines, to give the (non-existent) Palestinians their own homeland?

 Can you imaging the leader of another country telling a U.S. President to redraw our borders to some historic line and give a piece of the U.S. to some made up group of people as their homeland? Once more Obama displays his audacity…  no arrogance, to believe that he has the right to tell another world leader what to do. This man is a tyrant and megalomaniac of the highest order, and anyone who believes he has done anything to deserve another term just isn’t paying attention.
