If you haven't already seen Glenn flame CT Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, please take the time to do it. DO IT!
I could go into the whole upholding the laws on the books as opposed to enforcing those you WISH were laws argument, but Glenn, God Bless him, needs no help from the likes of me.
When the video ends, pick Part 2 from the YouTube menu that pops up right above the streaming bar. It's not done till Beck takes Blumy to task about the actual laws on the books.
As we said in the 70's: BURN!

Now, not only can you have your government in your pocket taking what's yours only to give it to someone more deserving, you can also count on them back up GM's vehicle warranties. YES! I can imagine a governmental utopia of ease and really really really fast, not to mention reliable, service. Way better than it is now.
He's also saying not to worry, that the government doesn't want to run this business, that this is merely a blip. But as the administration forces major concessions out of both companies, the president said he does not want them to become "wards of the state."
I swear he didn't flinch when he said it. And because he always says what he means and follows through with what he promises, I think we can all just get back to work knowing he's got this crazy car business under control.
He's also assuring you, oh and me, that if you just do your part, while he continues to do his (Wednesday's All You Can Drink at the White House Party!) then the sacrifice won't hurt so much. Why? Because we'll all be doing what he wants, what he instructs you to blindly do, silly.
Don't question The One.
In other news it (allegedly) looks like Joe Biden's daughter, Ashley Biden, may be responsible for the drug war in Mexico. A "friend" of Vice President Joseph Biden's daughter, Ashley, is attempting to hawk a videotape that he claims shows her snorting cocaine at a house party this month in Delaware.
Remember, last week Hillary pointed her crooked finger of responsibility at Americans who use drugs (which ironically includes her boss and his past contributions to the drug lord coffers): An "insatiable" appetite in the United States for illegal drugs is to blame for much of the violence ripping through Mexico, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday.
I think maybe the smokers among my readers will need to take a cig break right about now. WHAT?! You are thinking about quitting?! Just because Barry signed a law early in his administration to raise taxes from 39 cents to $1.01 per pack of cigarettes and from 19.5 cents to 50 cents per pound for chewing tobacco is no reason to hurt the children. Look, I know it's going to be tough to pay the new tax on your pack, but you will single-handedly finance a major expansion of health insurance for children. Think of it as your civic duty. I know Barry does.
Finally, in the Greed Is Great section of my brain, my blood pressure spiked over the name change of the Freedom Tower. Greed is the cause of many a bad decision, this one included.
Beautiful, isn't it?
“As we market the building, we will ensure that the building is presented in the best possible way,” Tony Coscia, chairman of the Port Authority’s board, told reporters after the lease signing ceremony. “1 World Trade Center is its address. It’s the address that we’re using. It’s the one that’s easiest for people to identify with, and frankly, we’ve gotten a very interested and warm reception to it.”
Yeah, that helps. As we market = we are doing what we want to make as much cash as we can, as we bend to the liberal faction opposed to the word "freedom."
No? Don't believe it?
When pressed during the news conference on whether Freedom Tower will appear anywhere on the building, Coscia replied, "Next," and turned to answer a question from another reporter.
Makes you wonder who the tower is being marketed to, right? Who would ever oppose the word "freedom?" Wonder no more:
on this very spot on 9-11.
You know, all the civilians and emergency workers who perished HERE:
Shame on the Port Authority Board. While they choose to turn their backs on those who still suffer the sacrifice made on that day, there are those of us who will never forget, and who will fight on.

Maybe with the big guns of possible terrorists enjoying release onto US soil and welfare payments to detainees at the Guantanamo Bay.
Or, how about Barry considering using a partisan tactic to push through the health-care overhaul, energy proposals and tax increases in Congress that would thwart Republican efforts to block the measures?
The administration and congressional Democrats are debating whether to use a parliamentary procedure called reconciliation to advance some of the biggest items on the president’s agenda. The move would allow Democrats to approve plans to raise taxes by $1 trillion, create a cap-and-trade system to rein in greenhouse-gas emissions, and overhaul health care without a single Republican vote.
Disenfranchisement anyone? It amounts to a total dismantling of our constitutional checks and balance.
If that wasn't enough there is this on the healthcare front: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the House this year will consider health-care legislation including an option for a government-run program that would compete with insurers.
Welcome to the DMV/MEDI-MART! Now serving 14 out of 69746. Hope you brought your Kindle cause you're gonna be here awhile.
Here's my favorite line though: President Barack Obama has said he wants Congress to produce legislation that would expand health-care coverage for the country’s 46 million uninsured and reduce medical costs.
It's kinda his mantra. He wants to expand his power and reduce your freedoms. Oh, and he is assuring you, his peeps, ~fist bump here~ that it's gonna save you money. That is if you still have any money after all his plans get approved by a the "fast tracking" of legislation.
A draft of the House tax-and-spending blueprint calls for using “reconciliation” procedures, a maneuver that would allow a health-care overhaul to move through the Senate with a requirement for a simple majority of 51 votes. Under normal Senate debate rules, 60 votes are needed to keep opponents from blocking legislation.
Still not drawing blood? Really?! How about Bar's promises on hope and change (for those of you who believed this to begin with)? I think he should have run on the more truthful slogan of Charging You Trillions For Your Misplaced Hope!
FOR a guy who talks so much about wanting a new era of responsibility, President Obama spends an awful lot of time blaming Republicans for all the wild and reckless spending he crammed into his own budget.
After running a campaign against the $1 trillion deficit he "inherited" from President Bush (just can't quit ya!) and the Republicans, Obama quickly matched it. During his first 50 days in office, he and his Democratic-controlled Congress spent $1 billion an hour.
$1 BILLION AN HOUR?! Lord in heaven, have mercy. It's a slap in the face to all who are struggling to feed their families and make their morgages.
Badass of the Day: Because I don't want you to go away discouraged for the weekend, I'll share an amazing short article by a great American: Bob Hamer. Bob wrote America's Heroes for Big Hollywood (Do not be fooled by the "Hollywood" part. This site is fun, thought-provoking, irreverent, and smart). I consider him one of America's Heroes. It's worth the click over.

Hillary: An "insatiable" appetite in the United States for illegal drugs is to blame for much of the violence ripping through Mexico, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday.
Obama's words from his book "Dreams from My Father": "Junkie. Pothead. That's where I'd been headed: the final fatal role of the young would be black man," Obama wrote. Mostly he smoked marijuana and drank alcohol, Obama wrote, but occasionally he would snort cocaine when he could afford it.
Drugs, Obama wrote, were a way he "could push questions of who I was out of my mind, something that could flatten out the landscape of my heart, blur the edges of my memory."
Obama used drugs = Obama is to blame.
Hil, you have gone too far! Oh wait, my bad, you didn't mean Obama, you just meant the rest of our junkies and potheads.
Hillary went on to say: "Our insatiable demand for illegal drugs fuels the drug trade. Our inability to prevent weapons from being illegally smuggled across the border to arm these criminals causes the death of police officers, soldiers and civilians," Clinton told reporters during her flight to Mexico City.
"I feel very strongly we have a co-responsibility."
Uh-oh, she's building steam towards gun control. I can smell it. Rahm's battle cry of never letting a serious crisis go to waste is ringing in the air.
She even gets Mexico's President Calderon in the act: Mexico has repeatedly said, however, that its efforts will come to nothing if the United States does not clamp down on the smuggling of U.S. guns used in 90 percent of drug crimes south of the border.
Where has our government been while those of us who live in border states have been screaming like banshees over this issue for years? Protect the damn borders. Use the laws on the books now to round up illegals (yes, some, not all, illegals are complicit in the drug war) and give them the boot. They drain our natural resources, they weaken our schools and hospitals, they are a mockery to those who do the right thing and work through the system, however flawed. They are here illegally, breaking the law everyday, while the rest of us are expected to follow the law. Enough.
This mess is of our own making. We've looked the other way and this is the consequence. Now, instead of controlling our borders, the administration is going to try and control the drug war. Yeah, good luck with that.
To use Barry's verbiage: Instead of tackling the real crisis, that didn't happen overnight or on his watch, they're going to invest in the tough choice of trying to control the uncontrollable. Like the press wrongly going after AIG executives for choices made by Barry and his team, Hillary and her team will go after the drug lords instead of actually securing the borders.
And in the meantime, you get blamed. GO TEAM!

Hey! It could happen.
I watch Bar's news conferences with an ear towards what he is actually saying (decoder ring will cost ya) as opposed to what he needs you to believe (every living falsehood that escapes his lips).
Item #1: Be wary when Bar tells you he needs you, the American people, to sacrifice or that he needs your support. Translation: YOU will need to sacrifice, not so much Bar and his lavish White House partying ways.
Obama: Well, as I said, the American people are making a host of sacrifices in their individual lives. We are going through an extraordinary crisis, but we believe that, if you take the steps that we've already taken, with respect to housing, with respect to small businesses, if you look at what we're doing in terms of increasing liquidity in the financial system, that the steps that we're taking can actually stabilize the economy and get it moving again.
What I'm looking from the American people to do is that they are going to be doing what they've always done, which is working hard, looking after their families, making sure that, despite the economic hard times, that they're still contributing to their community, that they're still participating in volunteer activities, that they are paying attention to the debates that are going on in Washington.
And the budgets that we're putting forward and some of the decisions that we're having to make are going to be tough decisions, and we're going to need the support of the American people. And that's part of why what I've tried to do is to be out front as much as possible explaining in very clear terms exactly what we're doing.
Item #2: Fear is his biggest tool. He wields it expertly, and will continue to do so until you no longer buy it. He wants more power, needs more power, and if he can scare you just enough (you don't want to lose anymore money do you?!) he knows he will have your support. He even offers you a special shout out on that valuable support.
We don't have that power right now; that's what Secretary Geithner was talking about. And I think that there's going to be strong support from the American people and from Congress to provide that authority, so that we don't find ourselves in a situation where we've got to choose between either allowing an enormous institution like AIG, which is not just insuring other banks, but is also insuring pension funds and potentially putting people's 401(k)s at risk if it goes under, that's one choice, and then the other choice is just to allow them to take taxpayer money without the kind of conditions that we'd like to see on it.
Item #3: If cornered, blame Bush (can't quit ya!). Last week Barry was talking about making vets use their own insurance to cover their war injuries once they got home. Brilliant fund raising idea (my words, but his idea) or nauseating horror? Obviously, to those of us who cannot thank our military men and women enough, it was/is a nauseating horror. An uproar ensued and Bar changed his tune (or did he? remains to be seen). Remember, this vet incident happened LAST WEEK.
Question: When so many items that may be destined for the chopping block seem politically untenable, from major weapons systems, as you mentioned procurement, to wounded warrior care costs, or increased operations in Afghanistan, or the size of the military itself.
That's the right thing to do. No one doubts the extraordinary sacrifices that men and women in uniform have already made. And when they come home, then they have earned the benefits that they receive. And, unfortunately, over the last several years, all too often the VA has been under-resourced when it comes to dealing with things like post-traumatic stress disorder or traumatic brain injury, dealing with some of the backlogs in admission to V.A. hospitals.
Item #4: Whenever Bar tells you that he has to make hard decisions, that it will not be easy for him, you can pretty much guess that you are gonna pay out the ass. Health care is the best example, evah. In the following portion of transcript he talks about investing. Investing = bending you over (you know you like it! plus, you even asked for it: gimme "free" healthcare. DO IT!). The easiest, not gonna cost you a dime, probably gonna save you money, but sadly will NOT grow government (ie your dependence), would be to stop offering free (no really, it's like, free) healthcare to illegals. Boom. Problem fixed. Next.
Now, how do we -- how are we going to reduce health care costs? Because the problem is not just in government-run programs. The problem is in the private sector, as well. It's experienced by families. It's experienced by businesses.
And so what we've said is, look, let's invest in health information technologies. Let's invest in preventive care. Let's invest in mechanisms that look at who's doing a better job controlling costs while producing good quality outcomes in various states and let's reimburse on the basis of improved quality, as opposed to simply how many procedures you're doing. Let's do a whole host of things, some of which cost money on the front end, but offer the prospect of reducing costs on the back end (hehe).
Item #5: He has morals and ethics but chooses to ignore them. First off, why is he concerned with cloning if he's for stem cell research on human embryos? Life is either sacred or not. If I support embryonic stem cell research, I would support cloning. Bring it on! I could use some help with the laundry. Seriously. He tells us that he believes in embryonic stem cell research, even though adult cell research is making incredible strides. He tells us it's ethical (whew, Bar's Seal of Approval, now I can relax) but then he makes his final statement about how he hopes that one day the ethical argument will be mute. Um, hey dude, for some of us it already is. Moral/ethics check, please!
Question: In your remarks on stem cell research earlier this month, you talked about a majority consensus in determining whether or not this is the right thing to do, to federally fund embryonic stem cell research.
I'm just wondering, though, how much you personally wrestled with the morality or ethics of federally funding this kind of research, especially given the fact that science so far has shown a lot of progress with adult stem cells, but not a lot with embryonic?
Obama: ....Look, I believe that it is very important for us to have strong moral guidelines, ethical guidelines, when it comes to stem cell research or anything that touches on, you know, the issues of possible cloning or issues related to, you know, the human life sciences.
I think that the guidelines that we provided meet that ethical test. What we have said is that, for embryos that are typically -- about to be discarded, for us to be able to use those in order to find cures for Parkinson's or for Alzheimer's or, you know, all sorts of other debilitating diseases, juvenile diabetes -- that it is the right thing to do.
Item #6 (the how did I forget? edit): No transcript here, merely an opinion. When Bernanke and Geithner were asked yesterday if they would agreed to renounce dropping the dollar and going to a global currency per China's and Russia's suggestion (i believe you can see this in the youtube posted below, around the 2:30 mark), they both answered "no." But it was the way in which they answered that bothered me. I felt the answers disingenuous. Bernanke looked at Bachmann then looked quickly away, but Geithner didn't even look at her. To me it signaled that there was much more to their answers. As if they were signaling to the other not to give anything away.
Today, Politico has posted a story saying the exact opposite. This administration is hell bent on destroying everything in it's path. Down goes the Dow and POOF! goes your 401ks.
WTF?! of the Day: Ann Compton and her race question. Which by the way I heard as: HEY! YOU'RE BLACK! We can see it too! Holy Smokes! You're our president and YOU'RE BLACK! Can you believe we even voted you in? Cause, like, YOU'RE BLACK! BLACK BLACK BLACKITY BLACK!!
Bar almost had me in his answer. So close.
And, you know, obviously, at the inauguration, I think that there was justifiable pride on the part of the country that we had taken a step to move us beyond some of the searing legacies of racial discrimination in this country, but that lasted about a day. (as i have said many times before, that step had been taken long before you were ordained, Bar. But i get how this serves you to say it.)
To end, I give you the Badass of the Day: Michelle Bachmann for her grilling of Geithner. Barney why-are-you-such-a-homophobe Frank couldn't wait to gavel her. It was great theater without the popcorn.
Tuesday, March 24, 2009
My initial response lately, to those in power and their relentless shenanigans, is to throw out f-bombs and sons-of-bitches and many a shit and damn. It's a shameful trait, but better than smacking someone in the head instead.
Right now I am listening to Bernanke and Geithner testify before a house panel on AIG and the banking crisis. They aren't handling themselves very well. Their arrogance and dismissal of the questions is serving to turn the air blue in my office even as I write these words. Barney "if you don't agree with me you are a homophobe" Frank is causing me to spit out my biggest bluest guns.
Here's what I want to know: Why are we letting those who are in power bend us over, day after day? Where is our outrage? Tea Parties aren't gonna do it folks.
Those who control the reins of this country are goose-stepping all over our rights. They are infringing upon our freedoms, the freedoms secured with honor and blood. Daily, our rulers insist on more power in the name of saving us. They are preceding with such astounding speed, arrogance and disdain for the populace that it has caused many to stand in stunned silence.
Where the hell is our outrage? Why aren't those of us who fuel this country's economy, who fuel its taxes, who fuel its future, marching on Washington?
In answer to this very literal question is a common response. Those who are the bread and butter of their great country are the same folks who take their responsibilities of employment seriously, who take their responsibilities of paying their mortgages seriously, who take their responsibilities to their children seriously. They can't just take off work, take off from their lives, and go march on Washington.
While I understand this stance, the time has come for action in this moment of grave danger to our freedoms.
"The price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men." Plato
We must stand and take the light to this present darkness. We must make the hard choice. We must act. We must unite. No more left or right. No more dividing our house. No more tearing each other apart when the time has come to save what has been hard won.
"There can be no transforming of darkness into the light and of apathy into a movement without emotion." Carl Jung
I know I'm not the only one out here railing against what I see happening. I'm not the only one feeling my power as an American citizen eroding even as our sons and daughters continue to spill their blood, to give their lives, in the name of freedom. I'm not the only one knowing YES, WE CAN stop the downward spiral if we only raise our voices together, get in the buses and planes and cars together, and march on Washington together until they listen to us.
"One man with courage is a majority." Thomas Jefferson
My outrage, punctuated by the bluest words I can think of, is out here for all to see and hear. I am done with being handled. Washington: Get your hands out of my pocket and your invasive control out of my life. You have gone too far.
I know I'm not the only one...

You want "free" healthcare just like the Canadians (who happen to cross the border into America when they need real care)? Fine. Then expect this:
"It's impossible for me to comment specifically about her case, but what I could say is ... driving to Mont Tremblant from the city (Montreal) is a 2 1/2-hour trip, and the closest trauma center is in the city. Our system isn't set up for traumas and doesn't match what's available in other Canadian cities, let alone in the States," said Tarek Razek, director of trauma services for the , which represents six of Montreal's hospitals.
I am a thinker by nature. I am an observer and rock turner. When there is a popular take on a story, I try to see things from a different angle. One question I always ask myself is : What is their agenda? What do they need me to believe?
Obama. Sheesh. This dude keeps my brain turning. One particular clip from his latest 60 Minutes interview got me to wondering.
President Barack Obama said he believes the global financial system remains at risk of implosion with the failure of Citigroup or AIG, which could touch off “an even more destructive recession and potentially depression.”
As late as March 14th, nine days ago, he stated TO THE WORLD that the economy was fine.
In less than two months in office, Obama has gone from declaring in his inaugural address that "we are in the midst of a crisis" to affirming Saturday the "soundness of investments in the United States" -- the latest example of an apparent change in tone that has caught the attention of political strategists.
That he says one thing and then turns around and says another on such an important issue means one of two things. #1) He has no idea what he's talking about. or #2) He is telling you things he needs you to believe at the time.
Barry is not stupid. Those who surround him are not stupid. The obvious choice is #2. He told us the economy was failing horribly and that it was a crisis in the beginning because he needed the stimulus to pass. If the stimulus failed to pass, his fairness agenda would fail. Couldn't have that. Oh, and by the by, prepare yourself, the mere mention of a depression means that he's coming for another dip in your pockets: Stimulus II.
So why did he then turn around (after the stimulus had passed) and tell us that the economy was fine just a short time later? He needed Americans to start spending again (let's get that economy jump-started!) so he could claim the credit through his passed stimulus, but more importantly, he was showing the Wizard's strength (deception) to those in the international community who might doubt us and take their money with them.
It's the old "say it and it's true" ploy. Clinton perfected this technique: I. Did. Not. Have. Sexual. Relations. With. That. Woman. Miss. Lewinsky. (uh, yeah, you kinda did)
So now, as is documented by the 60 Minutes interview, he's back to the sky is falling, and this time he pulls out the biggest fear gun: potential depression. If that doesn't make you blindly follow him and what he says to be the truth, that just means you are on to him. And our numbers are growing.
Deceit is a powerful tool. It's what bothers me most about Bar. That and his condescension. He calls the angry populists "Main Street." “Main Street has to understand, unless we get these banks moving again, then we can’t get this economy to recover. And we don’t want to cut off our nose to spite our face,” he said.
Thanks for clarifying the obvious and using the term "Main Street" to make us understand who we are to you.
He laughs in the interview (no harm in that...usually). But the way he laughs at what he says is what bothers me.
You're sitting here. And you're— you are laughing. You are laughing about some of these problems. Are people going to look at this and say, ‘I mean, he's sitting there just making jokes about money—’ How do you deal with— I mean: explain. . .” Kroft asked at one point.
“Are you punch-drunk?” Kroft said.
“No, no. There's gotta be a little gallows humor to get you through the day,” Obama said, with a laugh.
He calls it gallows humor to get him through his day. The tough day that begins and ends at the White House where he has chefs and housekeepers and a solid income. He is disconnected from the angry populists, um Main Streeters. He is so hell bent on fairness for those without that he's going to do his best to destroy an entire system that is a proven model for those who want to succeed. A model that works so well, people risk their lives daily just to get here to start a new life. Yes, capitalism fails, for those who demand that the government pay for that which is NOT a right: health care, homes, business bailouts.
It brings me back to the question: What does Obama need me/you to believe? That capitalism has failed us. Period. That socialism can save us. Exclamation point.
If he gets his way it's going to cost us more than we ever imagined with an unimaginable diminished return.
Just ask Natasha Richardson's family.

Poor Bar, he's in it deep with the Special Olympics crack. Appearing on "The Tonight Show," the president told host Jay Leno he'd been practicing at the White House's bowling alley but wasn't happy with his score of 129. The he rolled a gutter ball by quipping: "It was like the Special Olympics or something."
He's hurting to be sure. But not because he made a crass parallel between his bowling form and Special Olympics athletes. Not because those who would tear apart Bush for such a remark laughed, because they did. He's hurting because he had to apologize.
Inside Obama's head: Those who are with me didn't have any trouble with the knee-slapper. Sure, if it had been Bush, they would have torn him a new one, but I'm NOT Bush. How dare the populace demand an apology. Don't they know how long I worked on getting that joke just right?! Don't they know I'm allowed to say whatever I want?
~Moment of Silence for Barry here~
BO's other half is having a hard day too. While visiting Anacostia High School "on the poor side of town" ~sniff~ , she shared a particularly traumatizing incident in her youth, something so heinous that it remains with her still. Needing to bond with the students, she shared her story of how she was taunted for talking "like a white girl."
The night terrors must be horrific.
As if that wasn't enough, she was forced to reveal an intimate detail about her life that she had hoped would never, ever, find its way to print. Brace yourself:
Then a question few professional reporters would have dared to ask: "Do you put on your own makeup every day?"
ACK! Not only does she talk like a white girl, but she was forced to reveal she doesn't do her own makeup?!
~Moment of Silence for I-Talk-Like-A-White-Girl here~
It's like they're living Judith Viorst's book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. WHEN WILL THE NIGHTMARE END?!

I seriously need to hide my hammers. I can not take one more blow to the head.
I know the outrage being felt by so many about the insane bonuses being paid to bailed out companies, but here's my question: Who signed off on the legislation?
Sen. Dodd, who became the early called-out accomplice to AIG because it's by his hand the amendment was inserted, is now saying that Barry's administration asked him to include the amendment that assured the bonuses. Who ultimately signed off on that law?
Barry likes to remind us that this mess didn't start on his watch (just can't quit ya!), as if that somehow smooths over the disgrace of HIS bailout debacle. If BO hadn't signed the stimulus bill into law, or if I'm really generous and just point out that his administration is responsible for the Dodd amendment (according to Dodd), the majority dumbasses wouldn't be running around with their pants around their ankles trying to shove yet another piece of bad legislation down the American's throat.
Fake histrionics are so Stimulus Package One. By the way libs, Chicken Little called and he wants you to stop stealing his shtick.
For those of you who can see through the dems attempt to divert your understanding of the matter, that they are the ones who drew up the law and then voted for it hoping you would never find out about their double dealings, this next quote has the power to bring back your lunch. Hope you didn't have Mexican food:
"The American people demand protection and that's what we're doing today," said Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee.
Makes you feel safe and secure knowing they are doing what you demand. They are so in tune to our needs, aren't they? Urk.
All the while, Mr. The Buck Stops With Me is off to Leno hoping to convince the American public that if dirty-dealing Bush, Bush, BUSH had just been stopped earlier then we wouldn't be in this mess. Barry's here to help us. ~ smile smile, winkety wink ~ To make everything fair. ~ soft with-you laugh ~ He'll use his unmistakable charm (Leno will do his job by softballing him) trying his darndest to hypnotise the populace back into believing he's doing all he can.
Everything but take responsibility for his role in this calamity.

Badass of the Day: George W. Bush. He refuses to to have an easy poke at Barry. Sure, Barry loves him some Bush-bashing (can't quit ya!) as do all the liberals, but here's a man of substance, a leader who has been accused of everything from full responsibility of the economic meltdown to expediting global warming (because he IS that powerful), and he's keeping his thoughts on BO to himself. "...former President George W. Bush said that if President Obama wants help, “he can pick up the phone and call.” Otherwise, Bush said: “He deserves my silence.”
Dadgum, that's true restraint.
Shut Your Pandering For New Constituents Piehole of the Day: Pelosi. "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently told a group of both legal and illegal immigrants and their families that enforcement of existing immigration laws, as currently practiced, is "un-American."
While the above is a mere head-exploding taste, the rest of the article's content will require you to slap something, HARD.
Hey, Pelosi, do you think those of us who are legal citizens should also be able to pick and choose what laws we think are un-American? Fair play, right? Isn't that what this administration is all about? Fairness? Oh wait, my bad, you and your cohorts are all about fairness to those who cheat, lie and steal from those of who do not. Gotcha.
I Still Have Time To Piss Off, Even Though The Country is Burning of the Day: Barack Hussein Obama. It's good to know that our president has filled out his March Madness Brackets (he's just like you and me!) and that he can swing by Leno's place to give us a hope amidst all of the socialistic change he has pushed down our throats.
Just when you thought the campaigning for the presidency was over, he jukes to the left and starts anew on Leno. Gosh, Barry must be a guy you can trust. He's gonna put himself out there on Leno. Whew, millions will be able to witness the carnage. Man, hope Leno goes easy on him. I mean come on, I heard there will be no teleprompters available.
Incompetent Much? of the Day: Barry and his wackadoodle administration. "Sources in the Obama administration Tuesday said that despite previous media reports administration officials did not know until a couple weeks ago that the officials of the controversial AIG Financial Product Division were set to receive $165 million in bonuses on March 13."
Geez, I don't mean to tell anyone how to do their job (yeah I do), but don't you people think it's kinda your responsibility to know this stuff? Not that I believe for one minute that any of what you are desperately trying to convince us of is remotely truthful. How could you not know? And why is it that whenever something doesn't go your way, IE hoodwinking the American people, you revert to shrugged shoulders and telling us you didn't know anything? Deluded, much?
Nuts to You of the Day: ACORN. ACORN is going to be involved in counting peeps for the census. Well, we need someone to do it, right? Why not ACORN? First, for those who aren't aware, the census is not just about counting all of the people of this country to get a head count. Nope.
The census is an official count of the country's population mandated by the U.S. Constitution. It is used to determine distribution of taxpayer money through grants and appropriations and the apportionment of the 435 seats in the House of Representatives. Every U.S. household unit, including those occupied by non-citizens and illegal immigrants, must be counted.
Aha! It has political ramifications. ACORN should not be involved in the counting. Period. ACORN, which claims to be a non-partisan grassroots community organization of low- and moderate-income people, came under fire in 2007 when Washington State filed felony charges against several paid ACORN employees and supervisors for more than 1,700 fraudulent voter registrations. In March 2008, an ACORN worker in Pennsylvania was sentenced for making 29 phony voter registration forms. The group's activities were frequently questioned in the 2008 presidential election.
You have to ask yourself why they will be involved. What's in it for BO? Barry is counting on you to ignore the obvious payola going on here. I can just see what he's thinking: DO NOT CONNECT THE DOTS.
Like I said in the opening, I feel a road trip coming. Who's with me?

Cause and effect, baby. Sen Dumbass, you make the rest of the dumbasses bow to your colossal dumbassery. And that's something.
Next on my list of things that makes my head hurt: Obama mulls making vets foot bill for service injuries. Just the headline is enough to raise my blood pressure. How is that for a great idea military folks?! You get sent to Iraq on direct orders of your government, get your limbs mangled or worse, leave them behind, and then your government makes your private insurance pay for the care. Well if we're completely honest (stop laughing), you get slammed with the deductibles and co-pays. Ready to reenlist?
Who wants to take a stab at why Obama may be "mulling" this idea. Kinda makes him sound smart. Say it. Mulling, mulling, mulling. Don't be fooled. He's "mulling" another FU as he bends over those who protect our freedoms.
Now, who said "greed" as the reasoning behind the mull? Dead-on accurate: "It became apparent during our discussion today that the President intends to move forward with this unreasonable plan," said Commander David K. Rehbein of The American Legion. "He says he is looking to generate $540-million by this method, but refused to hear arguments about the moral and government-avowed obligations that would be compromised by it."
Well now, if he's looking to generate cash, it's all right. Right? My guess is that some of the cash he generates will go towards worthy projects like paying for illegal's medical expenses, welfare lifer's health costs. No you don't think so?
Headline last week: Budget crunch cuts illegal immigrant's health care. Here's what was reported: Local health systems in other states are facing similar decisions as health officials find themselves trapped between dwindling federal, state and local funding streams and the growing number of newly uninsured who need services.
Wow, funds are drying up. I bet if we put our heads together we can think of a new way to get the needed dough to help these poor ILLEGAL immigrants and the lifetime moochers who need to GET A JOB. You know, the taxpaying stiffs that keep this country going.
That BO wants our men and women to pay for their own healthcare after they come home injured, goes beyond gall. It is morally reprehensible. For those who voted for this man, who are standing with him still, I hope that this is your tipping point. These men and women are fighting, not only for our lives, but many times for their own. They leave their families, their homes, the safety of their world,with no guarantees of returning alive, to fight for our right to come here and strongly disagree with one another. Without their sacrifice we have nothing. The men and women of our military forces shouldn't have to add healthcare costs to their worries while in a firefight.
Talk about hope and change. This administration hopes to change the government's policy from treating our military's injuries as our sacred duty, to treating their injuries as a fundraiser.

I have overcome extreme adversity more than a few times in my life. I know what it feels like to be told I might have only six months to live. I know what it feels like to be abandoned. I know what it feels like to be alone and realize that no one is coming to help. I know what it feels like to rage against God and his decisions. I know what it feels like to work desperately towards something only to be told an arbitrary no. I have stood empty and wondered what is the point of going on.
Yet, here I am, still standing. My faith in God, my extreme sports determination and my relative lack of fear have proved invaluable when facing overwhelming obstacles. Life is tough, no doubt. I'm not making it out alive and neither are you. Everything we do between birth and death is a choice.
When faced with that which goes against what we believe to be right, we can fight or allow the challenge to pass. My choice has always been to fight. Fight all takers if necessary. In other words, I am a passionate gal. Especially when pushed.
This may make it seem as if I live for the fight. Nope. I would rather do anything than fight. I do not like having to defend myself and others in an arena of nasty words and accusations. I'll try reason first. Maybe some pleading. Most likely some humor. All the time wishing we could all just get along.
But, human nature is a bitch, that ain't ever happening.
Which brings me to my point today. While I have expressed anger in these posts, and I believe that anger is righteous, I am still optimistic and I want you to know that. We the people have a voice and I am seeing signs of a new morning.
To be sure, the biggest part of this fight is before us. I believe that this administration is not even close to done with the damage it plans to inflict in the name of socialism, I mean fairness.
They don't want us to succeed in the form that this country was founded; they are looking to right the wrongs that they feel have gone on too long. They are encouraging states to add to their welfare rolls. They fuel the fires of classism by telling you that the rich (they make less than you think) must pay more, but the every little guy will have more to spend every month in their paychecks (what did you ever do without that $7 per week before?!). They hope this money buys your silence as they slip in new taxes to all, like the ridiculous carbon tax or the mulling of the healthcare benefits tax (to fund government-based ~ think dmv-style ~ healthcare!).
Man, they are trying my last nerve. So yeah, my anger gets riled and I get pushy, but so should you.
For those of us who work for what we have, who believe government has crossed the line, who believe in our country's freedoms, who believe we are headed down a dangerous path, this fight is going to be the biggest obstacle of our lives. The socialists will not go quietly if they think they can wrestle you out of your money and your power. And they are already succeeding.
The time for righteous anger is now. The time to fight for our country is now. The time for a belief's gut-check is now. Stand up. Stand up with those of us who have been angry and pointing and pleading for a voice in the madness. Fight. Fight with all you have.
If we stand together, we will prevail. Of this I am truly optimistic.

Obama's Poll Numbers are Falling to Earth The headline made me ~GASP~ in surprise. Could it be those that voted for The One, are rethinking the wisdom of going along with someone based on his ability to smooth talk them? Too bad they couldn't have figured this out about four months ago.
Obama: Economic crisis "not as bad as we think" Uh-huh. Dude, telling us one thing when you know another is a tired old campaign trick. By the looks of the headline before this, you can trust that "we" are on to you and your slick purdy words.
Rally Fizzles: is This The End Of The Line? Here's the telling line in the article: "What we now need to see is some nice price consolidation in these higher levels, make investors and traders think they're missing something and then I think this rally can continue higher over the next few weeks." Wool, meet eyes.
Everyman Obama Courts Socialites Everyman Obama?! While that's not the best part of this article, it made me cough as I tried to dislodge the sticky phlegm of it all, this is small taste (pinkies out everyone!):
Last month, White House social secretary Desiree Rogers, who has said she intends to make the White House the "people's" mansion, was rubbing shoulders with the kinds of people who land in the pages of People at New York Fashion Week.Everyman, is hanging with the people, at the people's mansion. Your/my peeps are his peeps. My bad.
And now for Friday's Badass: Sheriff Joe Arpaio
I suggest everyone get out of their chairs, face Arizona, and give Joe the standing ovation he deserves.
Now there's an Everyman I can support.

Braced for the worst, I started my daily ritual on the Internets (thanky Al Gore!) in search of any light to be found. To my surprise I found this headline: Obama: Troop move to Mexican border under consideration.
If you have been paying attention, you know I live in Texas. Texas and Mexico share a border. Hell, some of the cities in Texas are just like being in Mexico. Anyone been to Laredo? Anyone do any business there recently? Trust me on this one, it's just an extension of Mexico.
The violence that overflows from Mexico into Texas is a daily occurrence in some border towns. It's a very real and growing problem. And because this is America and not Mexico, we need a solution to the thugs beheading (yes) those who cross them, or recruiting our elementary school children to be drug mules (true).
So when I saw the headline, a glimmer grew inside me, but because Obama is not who he seems to be or who he says he is, I read on with an eye on finding the loophole to my glimmer.
The opening paragraph: President Obama weighed in Wednesday on the escalating drug war on the U.S.-Mexico border, saying that he was looking at possibly deploying National Guard troops to contain the violence but ruled out any immediate military move.
OK, so far I'm not feeling a head-banging session coming on. No one who lives in any border town wants to see a military zone between us and Mexico.
I read on: "I think it's unacceptable if you've got drug gangs crossing our borders and killing U.S. citizens."
Whoa. I had to catch my breath. We agree. There it is in black and white. Whoa.
I am cautious, but read further: "We've got a very big border with Mexico," he said. "I'm not interested in militarizing the border."
That is just what I thought. What is happening here? Black is white, white is black.
Deeper into the article: Calderon blah blah blah.....Gov. Perry blah blah blah....Rep. Granger blah blah blah...and then, there it was. The part that stopped me cold because I knew what it meant.
Obama showed his hand and I commenced my head-banging with this:
"We expect to have a comprehensive approach to dealing with these issues of border security that will involve supporting Calderon and his efforts in a partnership, also making sure we are dealing with the flow of drug money and guns south, because it's really a two-way situation there," said Obama.
"The drugs are coming north, we're sending funds and guns south," he said. "As a consequence, these cartels have gained extraordinary power. Our expectation is to have a comprehensive policy in place in the next few months."
And we are back where we stated in our relationship. I see who you are, and you try to convince me otherwise. Gotcha.
Too bad, for you, I'm not as pliable (there's a change you really wanted) as you'd hope.
The focus has been drawn to the GUNS! involved with the Mexican drug trade. Many of their guns come from US border towns. No, not from trade shows, but from pawn shops, reputable gun shops and corrupt weapons dealers. There is even a lucrative business for "straw buyers" who purchase in the US and then transport the guns across the border to Mexico.
Bamster has his eye on gun control and this is the perfect opportunity. I will go out on a limb here and predict that Obama will try to get legislation passed based on this horrifying situation. Never forget what Rahm said: You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”
OMG!! MEXICANS HAVE GUNS FROM US!!! GUNS ARE EVIL AND ARE KILLING INNOCENT PEOPLE!!! BAN GUNS!!
Mark my words, he will go as far as to trot out disturbing images of innocent victims of the drug war, wearing their blood as war paint, in order to sway a growing liberal public that guns should be severely limited in the general populace.
You think I'm leaping? You think this is anything but gaining control over our right to bear arms?
The NRA, yes that NRA, has a fact sheet about how Obama has voted, backed-up by footnotes so you can click over and see for yourself where they gained their insight. Read this sheet and prepare to be enlightened. And chilled.
NRA Fact Sheet.
You have every right to be on BO's side of the aisle, no matter how deluded I think you are. But here's a question for you: If all hell breaks out in this great country of ours (scoff away as sane economists discuss the possibility of another depression and food lines and a general unease among the natives. if that doesn't sway you, how about another natural disaster, ala Katrina, in our current state of affairs? think the government nanny will run to your defense in a timely manner?), and you find yourself in a self-defense pickle (steak knife or ice pick?), who are you going to align yourself with? One of us who took the 2nd Amendment to heart as a way to protect ourselves should it ever, God forbid, come to that, or one of you, who will have to rely on your wits and mad debating skilz?
And I bet you thought this entry was going to be about illegal immigration.

News Flash: Sean Penn and his ilk are not my compass. They are the opposite of my true north.
I know, some of you don't agree with my views and think I am harsh in my assessments here. I have been accused of spewing hatred and contributing to the problem of a declining America. That I even have a forum infuriates some you.
Funny. When I think you're wrong, and that happens a lot lately, hatred doesn't enter into the picture. Anger does, but mostly, I am curious about our differences. I wonder how you formed your beliefs and I wonder what we have in common. Even with those whom I staunchly disagree, I can usually find a common bond, or most likely a frayed thread. That's a starting point.
But, lately, as I understand it, we seem beyond discussion; we are at war with one another ideologically. When at war, one must put aside polite conversation and dig in for the fight. And that's exactly how I see it. I am digging in for the fight of a lifetime.
I see my country's future, the future I want for my children and grandchildren, riding on constitutional attacks that have the power to change everything that made this country great. The libs see it as a way to get what they have always wanted: control. And now that their favorite socialist is in power, they are going for broke.
Let's take Prop. 8. Those who opposed it said it had nothing to do with religious beliefs. Libs swore it was only about being equal under the law (thus they waved off civil unions). The libs took their sword and drew a line in the sand while pointing to the Preamble of the Constitution. With all their might, which wasn't quite enough to win, they tried to convince the voting public that religion was safe from the line. That the line would never get drawn into the churches.
Whew. That's a relief.
Now, some say this this next article doesn't have to do with Prop. 8 at all, while others are saying it's a backdoor move to make the changes necessary to bring about a Prop. 8 type change from within. I'll let you decide. Either way, it is a blatant attack on the Constitution.
Following the biggest political firestorm of the 2009 legislative session, a public hearing scheduled for Wednesday on the financial and administrative management of the Catholic Church has been canceled by the judiciary committee. The bill is dead for the rest of the legislative session.
As soon as word spread about the bill, the Legislative Office Building was flooded with telephone calls and e-mails on Monday. The bill, virtually overnight, became the hottest issue at the state Capitol.
The cancellation came less than 24 hours after Senate Republican John McKinney of Fairfield called for the cancellation, telling Capitol Watch on Monday that his caucus was unanimously against the bill because they believe it is clearly unconstitutional. He rejected the notion that the issue was raised as a committee bill on behalf of lower Fairfield County constituents, saying that legislators routinely offer a bill "by request'' if constituents seek a hearing on an issue.
Hello? First Amendment anyone?
First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
As the article stated, the bill is dead for the legislative session (my prediction is this is not the last attempt at this kind of legislation). It begs the question: What could be gained by introducing, and hopefully making into law, a bill that would legislate the structure of the Catholic Church in Connecticut?
Not Catholic? No need for you to worry? Don't be naive. The Jews underestimated Hitler's hatred too.

While the hosts of late night television are reluctant (scared?) to poke fun at Obama, we are not. Matter of fact, we relish the idea if for no other reason than making BO's enemies list.
If you doubt me (seriously, you will learn soon enough not to), I offer Big Hollywood's very own Ernie Mannix and his brilliant piece Things President Obama Does Instead of Watching Stock Market.
Do yourself a favor and go read it. But don't stop at his entry. Some of the best zingers are in the comments. If inclined, you can even add your own. I did.
Genius stuff. What a relief for those of us looking for a laugh. Better than anything I have heard on television. And those guys get paid for their lines.
SNL, are you paying attention? Those of us on the other side of the fence will laugh when offered something genuinely funny. And smart. Ernie and his funnier-than-you commenters got it right (Loren, I almost thought you guys had hit stride again with The Rock Obama hilarity until the skit went cram-our-win-down-the-losers-throats on us. Again. After that it was a huge, disappointing, ohsoclose stinker.)

There's meltdown in the sky (Does this have to do with the North Korean "satellite" test?)
If you can judge a wise man (Um, Steven, I don't think we're supposed to "judge")

Most headlines/stories of the day make me want to kick some ass. Figurative or literal, makes no matter to me.
I give you the darkness:
* Cube-Steak Americans vs. the Wagyu-Beef White House by Michelle Malkin (supports my my point to do as 'Bamster orders not as he does, peasants!)
* Is Talk Cheap? by Thomas Sowell (this is a must read)
* Jobless Rate Soars to 8.1 Percent, Highest Since 1983 by AP (makes my heart hurt)
* Bill Seeks to Let FDIC Borrow up to $500 Billion by WSJ (yeah, your money is safe in the banks. can anyone say time to find tin cans and a shovel?)
* Obama Repeats Bush's Worst Market Mistakes by Steve Forbes (oopsie)
* Never waste a good crisis, Clinton says on climate by Reuters India (obviously Clinton got the Rahm memo)
* Gibbs knows the art of war by The Hill (idiots. we are in the midst of a f*cking meltdown and this is what Gibbs/Rahm/Carville/Obama thinks is important?!)
Now, how about some light:
* Dems need a do-over in spending fight by Politico (just the tiniest glimpse of light, but it's there)
* Heated Exchange: Al Gore confronts his critics by WSJ Blog (Gore wouldn't go off-script and is like the fit-throwing child who is blindly focused on getting that candy bar in the check-out aisle. As Mom tries to talk Al out of it by reasoning with him, he flails to the floor in a last desperate attempt to sway the purse-holder, while the rest of us stand by rolling our eyes at his histrionics)
* Obama's safety net: the Teleprompter by Politico (ahhhh, his weakness revealed. Maybe not such a brilliant speaker after all. and does anyone else wish for a Ron Burgandy moment? Note For My Older Readers: Ron Burgandy, an anchor for the nightly news, is the main character in the movie Anchorman. when he's on-air delivering the news by teleprompter, the staff messes with him and puts ridiculous stuff for him to read - which he does- and they all have a good laugh)
* Justices seem to be leaning in favor of Prop. 8 by SF Gate (this is a matter of the people going to the polls and voting. the proponents of Prop. 8 lost. plain and simple. want to change it? get your asses to the polls next time. in the meantime, give us all a break and suck it up. it's what you would tell us. hell, it's what you tell us every day since your messiah has arrived.)
* Anti-Obama retains radio power by CNN (oh, CNN, this has to kill you a little)
* Rush by Rush (love him or hate him, he's the badass you wish you were.)
Thursday, March 5, 2009
The figurative argument goes something like this:
We (half) the People and growing: Trillions for a "stimulus" you flipped a coin on? Bailouts and more bailouts? Maybe it will work, maybe it won't?! We don't need you to guess on something this monumental.
BO: Blame Bush (can't quit ya!). We must do something to get us out of this mess that we inherited from the last administration (BUSH is evil!). Even if it's wrong (if you want to talk about who was wrong...BUSH!).
We (half) the people and growing: Even if it's wrong?! But, isn't that like cutting off your finger when you have a splinter? The solution is over-reaching and will cause more damage. Surely we can take a bit more time and incrementally try solutions that may be better suited, maybe even consider solutions that have a history of working.
BO: ~clenched fist~ Are you not listening?! Bush is evil. He is responsible. Oh, by the way, No more earmarks! I know this budget has earmarks, but it's not mine (BUSH!), even though my name will be on it and by signing it I am authorizing the earmarks that aren't mine (Dirty Bush!). It's not my responsibility (Bush made me do it). Seriously, ask anyone in my administration. They'll tell you straight. Rahm. Ask Rahm. Oh man, he blames Bush as much as I do. ~serious face~ It's last year's issues (And who can we blame for last year? BUSH!). Has nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with me. I merely sign it into law.
Yeah. The Bush hating is old old old. You libs hate Bush. Got it. Check. Highlighted, so we never forget. I want to see problems addressed without nonsensical pointing of crooked little fingers towards Bush. We know he bears responsibility. But, news flash, so do you libs.
Jim Cramer gets the pushback right. Cramer responds to the White House knocking his recent observation about 'BAmster's policies causing "...the greatest wealth destruction by a president" in THIS ARTICLE. This from a man who voted for BO.
The article stays on point. He highlights what he thinks Bush got wrong, but it doesn't start and end with Bush. It's just a piece in the crap pile. But, you gather he is seeing things differently since he voted for Da Man. He says: "I am proud to have voted for the Obama who I thought understood the need to get us on the right path, and create jobs and wealth before taxing it and making moves that hurt job creation -- certainly ones that will outweigh the meager number of jobs he's creating." (emphasis mine. perhaps we (half) the people and growing, just got a plus one)
Now that's a fight worth hearing/watching. Jim Cramer, a recent BO supporter, is now a dismissed loonytoon by the intellectual elite (The folks now running the joint who know better than you. Yes they do! Just ask them.). Here is a guy who has a frenzied, hyper-caffeinated, highly entertaining yet educational show directed at helping people to retain and grow their capitol, and he gets it right. He, a recent supporter!, dares to hold up BO's insanity, his dangerous policies, for all to see and it ends up dwarfing whatever the administration throws at Cramer to discredit him.
Their disdain for Cramer, and his ilk (meaning all of us, no matter the affiliation. i stand by my previous prediction that they'll go after you as soon as they're done with us. count on it.) shows in their response. How dare he push back against their dangerous policies. He must be diminished. He must be contained. He must be stopped.
Here's the part of Jim's response that makes me get up on the table and cheer: "If that makes me an enemy of the White House, then call me a general of an army that Obama may not even know exists -- tens of millions of people who live in fear of having no money saved when they need it and who get poorer by the day."
Well done Jim. The army is growing and stands with you.
