I am sorry Mr. President, we arent a democracy; we are a Republic. I know you big government socialists, wish it to be strictly a democracy. Because then, you would only need to turn fifty-one percent of the citizens on the other forty-nine percent. Sorry Obama, thats just not what we have or want. We are a nation of laws to prevent that.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) – President Barack Obama took aim Saturday at the angry rhetoric of those who denigrate government as “inherently bad” and said their off-base line of attack ignores the fact that in a democracy, “government is us.”
Since when has it become posh to actually come out and rally for more taxes! It has not fooled me of course; I am aware that its just a union crowd trying to answer the call of the TEA PARTY movement. They do seem to have the favor of the White House, and have received several avenues of stimulus and bailouts since the arrival of Obama. Why would they not, cheer for more taxes to refill their outstretched hands.
The true agenda of the liberals has been, to flood us with piles and piles of leftist notions while they have the power. In order to leave us so angry and exhausted that we give up our will to fight.Read More
So I saw a blog today proclaiming that the EPA was having a contest. The contest is to have people submit propaganda youtube video to sing the praises of government regulation.
I was so taken back by this I clicked the inline link to the epa homepage. Low and behold, there it was just as the author claimed. The government offering a reward for this jedi mind trick? So we Americans who wish for smaller government and less intervention, are going to be tricked into helping the government sell more big government? Amazing, is this where we are folks?

Finally the courts making a stand to end funding of ACORN. This organization has been notoriously crooked for many, many years. No matter how often it was brought under scandal, you still had big government funding them to the tune of 53 million dollars(since 1994).
It sickens me that the President, has a storied association with the likes of these people. It serves as example , that we as Americans must do a better investigation of our would be leaders. In the past men with silver tongues, were simply not enough.Read More
Isn’t it convenient that while the President now tries to cuff the financial sector, with new extravagant ‘financial regulatory reform bill’. That he sends out the SEC to finally address some devious doings at Goldman Sachs. Isnt it convenient that we didnt attack Wall Street, immediately when we chose to bail these fools out.
The truth is the Government is really to blame for the collapse. Do I believe that people on Wall Street made profit off the disaster, sure- it IS what they do everyday- risk, gamble, assess, hedge, knowing and projecting which side to be on to make money. But for the Government to be able to ‘control’ the private free market, they have to be able to paint these money makers as evil.Read More
Really?….”say thank you”…are you serious?
So I was reading in another article, which referred back to this article in the USATODAY (here) where as part of the obvious failed stimulus package. This ‘cut’ is so insignificant I didnt even notice, or feel it. This constutes this middle class tax relief? Are you serious Mr President?
You are chuckling, cracking jokes, laughing off something as serious as tax policy, with this excuse for a tax cut? This was the ‘cut’ used to bribe the masses to vote for you which was supposed to be $500 lump sum, and turns out to be a tax credit. Albeit a tax reduction, but at what interest are we paying it. Your gratuity is far insignificant now in the abounds of debt you have leveled on this nation.Read More
After watching this video, I just wanted to scream. “Come on Mr. President just be honest and answer the question.” However, when you watch it you will notice, the same old tired circle jerk stepping around of truth. Mr. President, she asked you: “Is it wise to be adding taxes at this point, when we are already overtaxed?”
The clear truthful answer should have been no. I remember when Obama professed he was going to go through the budget “line by line”. “Cut spending with a scalpel”, instead he has driven the deficit up to 14 trillion dollars. No cuts, unless you include the fake one where he froze spending on 3% of his budget that he had already bloated, beforehand.Read More
On the issue of the Tea Party Movement, although some Republicans share some of the philosophies associated with the activists- they are NOT synonymous. The recent effort by the Republicans to hijack the movement sort of irks me.
Considering the movement principles based on small government, fiscal responsibility, Constitutional obedience, free markets- it would be more Libertarian, then modern day Republican. For the past eight years the Bush administration did not practice any of these. Granted the new Obama regime has quadrupled the Bush expansion, it does not excuse the Republicans.Read More
Having been so focused on the tyrannical raid on my liberties here in the states. I barely have paid attention to the new policy we seem to be implementing on Israel. I will go into them in a second.
Having originally supported the Iraq conflict, (I dont say war anymore since they never passed the declaration of war in Congress) I thought we had a real reason to take action. We toppled over Saddam, he was hung for his crimes. We should have declared victory and left that day. He was the threat, we snuffed out the filth.Read More
“ economic equality, today known as socialism, or the sharing of wealth”
What you mean is entitling some of the people to wealth, they did not earn, nor help produce is equality. So in effect theft is equality. This only serves the nonproducer with artificial happiness- it does not make him better nor equal. Of course the one who put the effort towards making the wealth that was taken, has been stolen from…somehow advocating theft to make things more equal-is supposed to be more moral?Read More
It really gets on my nerves when I see Nancy Pelsoi in front of a camera. She is just another corrupt liberal pushing her own agendas, with no regard to what she said before. In fact, she really don’t care if the people are for or against her position, she does what SHE wants. Especially if there is any opportunity to step on the Constitution, spread the wealth, raise taxes, or put down any oppositions point of view as evil.Read More
On another blog, I participated in a discussion. The basic theme was about why people of color normally and habitually vote Liberal. I believe they target any and all ‘groups’, breaking them down into demographics. The Liberals waltz around and pretend to be ‘the party that cares’ and champion any and all ‘special interests’; in actuality its a scheme to build a firm base to keep them in power.
Too, they realise that all of these special interest have their own social networking; if whispered the right promises they can be absorbed into the collective, to vote Liberal. They break everyone out into blocks and have them sing the moral praises about Liberalism to their circle and wham their own message gets pushed for free for a few more tear soaked stories.Read More
“You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle for independence. ”
Charles A. Beard
That quote prolly went well with the last post too…but newsflash after newsflash I have watched over the last couple days have been how the republicans have been advocating violent protests, among the wave of unrest, spurred on by the dictatorish health- takeover by the governmentRead More
I wonder if Obama and the media will call this guy a “tea bagger, right wing racist, facist, terrorist, neocon, hate monger”
It gets tiresome listening to hipocrisy.If a union worker gets out an protests with their pickets and signs- its extrodinary exercise of their constitutional rights. If a conservative does so they are obviously wacko’s…lol
All the uproar over death threats and the like, trying subterfuge to avoid the recoil of a scorned people. Let’s call the 9.12’s and Tea Party activists names(to discredit them) and when they say no to something -they are insulting a protected class(they have to be a racist of course and excluded). Let’s blame them for violent behavior(to shut them up)…yet Nancy walked unabaded through them to go vote for socialized Healthcare…and wasnt harmed hmmmm.Read More
I just watched a special last night. It was explaining how many homeless, and non insured patient walk into emergency rooms sometimes as much as 2-3 times per week even, and are not turned away.
The hospital took it upon itself to make its ‘own program’, which helped these people get off drugs, find jobs and housing so they wouldnt clog up the ER for real emergencies. This is a prime example of a non-government solution to a problem.Read More
In case you were not reading the fine print. This is where the government stacks the deck. For a year now, they promised competition. Yet, the socialists are trying to secure a way already to make sure they do not operate with any restraint.
I mean it wasn’t enough, that they already don’t have to meet any expectations like regular insurance companies. They don’t have to carry a payroll, provide benifits, ‘make a profit’, etc. Now they want to ensure they can outprice even the smallest amount of Insurance Companies that can actually rival a resource limitless competitor.Read More
So I visited the website that promotes the egibility for medicaid. Upon a few minutes of reading, I was convinced that this program was exactly what the big government expansionists was saying they needed. I mean supposedly they claim people can’t afford medical, isn’t Medicaid the cure for that? What? Its broken?…or you mean broke.
http://www.cms.hhs.gov/medicaideligibility/ <<<<<<read it.
Part of the “escuse” for new “federal control of medical”, is that poor people do not have access to healthcare. I see so we already have a program with very broad basis for eligibility, yet its “broken”. It doesnt do its job?
So there I was researching on what this congress uses to make this healthCare bill constitutional.
In my stumbling I hopped on this site:
I don’t know who these people are, frankly it don’t matter…there is a couple links that caught my eye.
Of course Princess Pelosi making an ass out of herself yet again– idly dismissing a real question:
(you have to click on her link to get that article http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/55971 )
CNSNews.com: “Madam Speaker, where specifically does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to enact an individual health insurance mandate?”Read More
The government, in its ever relentless assault on our liberty, is now trying to add on more government to the HealthCare Bill. The same bill that is rejected by the people cause we don’t want big government. Its almost laughable. Though I don’t find it funny, they are arrogantly pressing their socialist agenda, with more and more expansion.
‘We can’t get our big expansion passed, so lets take another facet we don’t control and bring it under our bloated bureaucracy.’
Americans have voiced a 3-1 oppposition to this government expansion, yet the thieves of Liberty plan to add another heaping pile of ‘control’ onto the pie.Read More
“The Senate-passed bill would establish a 40 percent tax on the cost of health insurance policies above $8,400 for individuals and $23,000 for families (the cost below those thresholds would not be taxed). Some people, such as police officers, firefighters and others whose insurance is expensive because they hold high-risk jobs would be exempt.”
So the unions are tweaked off because their ‘bloated’ insurance plans will fall into this 40% tax– so in order to not have to lose union support we will just push that ‘cost’ back to 2018? (yet include it in the CBO score as revenue in a ten year review) hmmmmmmm “social justice” tastyRead More
“Right to education”?
You have a right to it?, Or does the public find it socially acceptable to invest in it?
I contend you have no right to make me pay for your childs education. Although I pay my taxes, because if I don’t I can be punished, it don’t mean I agree with your term “right to education”.
I know it sounds very moral to educate our youth, and I do favor doing such- the problem starts where what we are teaching is brought into question. Todays basic skills are suspect, in my opinion.
The lack of sustained civics, American History, downplaying of capitalism, selling the goals of big government. Suspected indoctrination comes to mind.
Recently I was conversing with a few of my online friends from other nations. Some were trying to rave to me how sweet it is to have free healthcare. Which I know there are pro’s and cons, and furthermore many countries have varying degrees of social medicine and varying results.
Its my own survey thats found for every single “social medicine is awsome” story you hear- there 3 misery stories.
Case in point – a Canadian Official just recently came to the good old bargain basement USA healthcare system to get treatment. Right?..
We all have our problems. People in the United States are desperate and the government are preying on that very fact. You see I wish I ‘could’ believe that my government could pull this off. The trouble is a ‘politician’ is constantly running for office. Out of 535 people in our government I bet only a handful or so are worth the powder to blow them up with.
That IS the problem. You approve them to spend 20 million they dial up China for 1 trillion. Sure all this free stuff “sounds great”, but not borrowing it against my childrens future. Not allowing the government to expand its way by 1/6 into our free market. OUR system, our constitution was specifically designed to prevent that sort of thing.Read More
I didnt write this its something I found @ Boortz.com which made me smile so broadly I am sharing it with everyone I can!
BRAIN-DEAD QUOTE OF THE DAY
By Neal Boortz @ March 12, 2010 10:04 AM
The title of brain-dead quote of the day goes … yet again … to Princess Nancy Pelosi. I think you will understand why once you read her statement:
“They know that the American people have been exploited by the insurance industry. We can’t walk away from this. So I have faith in [Congress] that they value what this is — health care as a right, not a privilege.”
The article below was found on Nealz Nuze, at Boortz.com. I read this blog just about daily, and come across this. I have always maintained, that Obama wasn’t the sort of proCapitalist- free enterprise leader we need. He is and always has been a Socialist. His speech is always in more government control, central planning, equalizing everyone into drones, everyone is paid the same, and can say what they want as long as its not against the government, and agree to be dictated to by the elite.Read More
Right at this moment the deathtax is 37%. According to the tax code, beginning 1/1/10 through 1/1/11 if you die and leave your children your wealth free of deathtax. If you choose not to die- the rate is going to jump up to 55%. Then, you might enjoy giving your kids 45% of all you worked for in your life. Granted some of you may think you dont have enough money to worry, but those of you that have a million dollar insurance policy kiss that thought goodbye. 50% of all households have two income earners in America, that easily puts many citizens inheritances in the line of fire of the million dollar threshold.Read More
Ok, so in the recent news we have the ever open mouth of Harry Reid, touting how Secretary Paulson, has this power to bailout the unions.( ‘he has the power but just won’t do it’, implying that he solely is in favor of the big 3 failing) No I didn’t say that wrong, make no mistake- this isnt about the automakers failing. This is strictly about the UAW voters whom the liberals have been swooning to as of late to ensure their pocket voters will stay in their corner in all the forthcoming elections.Read More
Ok so I just read an article where a leader of the UAW, decided that the union workers will not give up concessions in any sort of bailout deal. Really? So- I see , the taxpayers of this nation, whom have not done one thing towards the contract, to the automakers, to the CEO’s etc., can concede you 50 billion dollars but you and your fellow coworkers wont agree to taking any of the burden? Excuse me?Read More
Ok so today I was reading an article in the Washington Post. The article featured California Gov.Schwarzenegger, in which he levied that Washington got us into this economic free fall, and should get in gear and get us out of it. While I agree, they did with the ‘sub prime load debacle’ engineer this recession. I do not simply trust that they are the ones who can or should be trusted to fix a mess they made!Read More
So, looking at the news today, a poll already surfaced:
So I want to go on the record-s-. President elect Obama made alot of promises, its my opinion that when it seems he will not deliver on these promises, he and other liberals first excuse and main excuse will be GW BUSH. Yes, I know all through the election, we heard this trotted out: “Vote for McCain= 4 more years of Bush”.Read More
General Motors oldest retiree will be 110 years old this year. The employee worked for GM for 32 years and has been collecting pension and health benefits for 47 years. If this employee dies and leaves behind a spouse, the spouse will get a partial part of his benefits……..
…For every worker working at General Motors they are footing the bill for 2.5 retired workers. The picture is not going to get any better as long as the UAW isn’t willing to make concessions. What concessions could the UAW make? How about going on par with what the blue-collared salaried workers make and then negotiate to the national averages.
Ok, don’t get me wrong here folks. I don’t want GM, Ford or Chrysler to fail anymore then any of you do. I understand that these companies employ thousands of Americans.
That being said, I am against taxpayer bailouts. Part of free enterprise is risk and reward. This means the Big 3 arent exempt from it merely because they employ we Americans. I dont hear rallies to bailout ‘Dominics Pizza’ who employs 15 Americans? Why because a mom and pops business is less important to the masses?Read More
“When I left office, there was a substantial amount of biological and chemical material unaccounted for. That is, at the end of the first Gulf War, we knew what he had. We knew what was destroyed in all the inspection processes and that was a lot. And then we bombed with the British for four days in 1998. We might have gotten it all; we might have gotten half of it; we might have gotten none of it. But we didn’t know. So I thought it was prudent for the president to go to the U.N. and for the U.N. to say you got to let these inspectors in, and this time if you don’t cooperate the penalty could be regime change, not just continued sanctions.”
“So then, your problem isn’t that either of them wish to give Government money to those who don’t pay taxes and or are unemployed, it’s strictly about where he gets the money?”
No.. I have a problem with a government policy that promotes charity over teaching. It prefers to control industry, instead of cultivate a vigorous job market.
That would tax the hell out of the people, business, profits, a tax pollution, property, tax on employees, tax on death, tax on interest, sales tax, etc… all these taxes…the second highest tax climate on the planet, why ? To pay for government charity.Read More
” Actually….I don’t think ANYONE gets it…except us little guys..We get it..in the ass ! ”
We’re all taking it in the ass…just some of us realize no matter what, taking money from one group of people and merely handing it to another group …its not only not gonna fix this anal raping, its plain out socialism.
The rich didnt screw you…they did what all Americans want to do -make it rich.
The govt screws you because, they bailout people who deserve to fail.Read More
Actually perhaps I’m stupid merely cause I don’t buy into the ‘ruleset’ that you seem to think qualifies or quantifies people.
You folks may take your liberty with a grain of salt -I don’t, you may want to socialize medicine, banking, housing, and then steal money from 5 percent of the nation and hand it over to other people, half of which don’t even pay a penny into the system…but I am not for that…and for the record I am a Libertarian.. I am not a republican stumping for Palin…however…if by accident some hand of God…she became president…I have more confidence in her -then I do anyone who wants to increase spending, put the deficit on the back burner, and one by one will start erasing my freedoms..
The “collective’ in this piece..is another term for the socialism model.
Obama wants to grow the economy from the ground up?
Notice how this starts by, taking from the top – whereby not raising the bottom, but LOWERING the top. The lower and middle do NOT move, they do NOT change. We all just seem more similar. This is not because we ARE ALL suddenly a success, but neither stands out among the many; the successful are castrated, the middle are still in the middle, and the poor have done zero in the whole deal to improve. They are still the same, except they have the gifts of money they didn’t earn, nor could regenerate on their own.Read More
Frankly, it is socialist economics, though you can try to paper over that fact all that you want.
When a government intervenes in a market, it upsets the dynamics of a market and forces inefficiencies. In fact, I would strongly argue that government is responsible for the high health care costs today.
In a free market, I have the option to pick the best plan for me, from a range of suppliers, at the price I wish to pay. As soon as you get government involved, there are mandates of what plans have to include, it increases prices and consolidates supply. That is bad for the consumers of health care.
I wonder why nobody is talking about this(taken for obama.com):
Provide Middle Class Americans Tax Relief
Obama and Biden will cut income taxes by $1,000 for working families to offset the payroll tax they pay.
Asked how they would deal with the housing and economic crisis America is facing, McCain said he would order the Secretary of the Treasury to “buy up the bad home loan mortgages in America and renegotiate at the new value of those homes, at the diminished value of those homes.”
Another not unimportant consideration is, that the powers of the general government will be, and indeed must be, principally employed upon external objects, such as war, peace, negotiations with foreign powers, and foreign commerce. In its internal operations it can touch but few objects, except to introduce regulations beneficial to the commerce, intercourse, and other relations, between the states, and to lay taxes for the common good. The powers of the states, on the other hand, extend to all objects, which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, and liberties, and property of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the state.
