Hey Democrats, Vote Obama Out on the Expansion of the Patriot Act Alone!

Good stuff from Roger Hedgecock... good and scary:

While Obama publicly proclaimed his rejection of the Bush "torture" under the Patriot Act, he has quietly expanded the Bush policies of communications intercepts.
But little notice has been given by the Obama cheering media to Obama's failure to close Gitmo or Obama's accelerating assault on the protections of the Bill of Rights.
If Obama were a Republican president, I bet this issue would be getting the attention it deserves.

E-mails My Dad Sends Me: The Real Life and Political Meaning of 1 Billion

Remember November 6th is just around the corner! No matter which side you're on, this one puts things in perspective.This is too true to be funny.

The next time you hear a politician use the Word 'billion' in a casual manner, think about whether you want the 'politicians' spending YOUR tax money.

A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, But one advertising agency did a good job of Putting that figure into some perspective in One of its releases.

A billion seconds ago it was 1959.

A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.

A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.

A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.

A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.

While this thought is still fresh in our brain...
let's take a look at New Orleans ...
It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division.

Louisiana Senator,
Mary Landrieu (D)
was asking Congress for
To rebuild New Orleans. Interesting number...
What does it mean?

Well .. If you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans (every man, woman and child) You each get $516,528

Or... If you have one of the 188,251 homes in New Orleans, your home gets$1,329,787C. Or... If you are a family of four... Your family gets$2,066,012

Washington, D.C.

We had absolutely no national debt...
We had the largest middle class in the world...
And Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What happened?
Can you spell 'politicians'!

And I still have to Press '1' for English.

I hope this goes around the USA at least 100 times.

What has happened to our country?????

E-mails my Father sends me: Billboards Bashing Obama

Scroll down.
This one is seen on Interstate I-35
Now this is a good one it will be seen by many.

don't know where these are seen

Highway billboard attacking 0bama inspires
heated newspaper letters:
a billboard in West Plains showing a caricature
of Democratic presidential candidate
Barack 0bama wearing a turban and using
his middle name - Hussein - in quotes
has sparked outrage and accusations of racism

Look at the bottom of this next sign to see
who paid for it. Love it!!


It would be nice to keep this going until
November 2012...
5 miles east of Clovis, New Mexico
on Highway 60-70-84.
That's the Texaco highway for those of you
who don't know.

Please send this to all your friends
and ask them to do the same... We are really
going to have to work to limit him and
his administration to one term.

Thanks ……………

Rachel #Maddow is such a hypocritical person

On July 11, 2012 or Wednesday's show Rachel Maddow did an amazing thing.  In one segment she blamed the Washington Times for doing poor journalism and just printing talking points from the Romney campaign about Dick Cheney and Romney's relationship, then talked about (and admitted) that the Democrat talking points are about Romney's dad and releasing his tax returns.  So she basically slammed the Times for sucking at journalism and then turned and did THE EXACT SAME THING on her show repeating the Democrat talking point.
Plus a really weird comment she made about Dick Cheney.  She mentioned that Cheney had a heart transplant then said, "Isn't Obamacare great!?"
Now, I don't really know how to take that comment.  She can't be that dumb and think that Dick Cheney's heart transplant was somehow paid for by Obamacare which hasn't even started yet.  Maybe she's being sarcastic meaning that when ObamaCare is in effect, Dick Cheney shouldn't get his heart transplant, you know because he's a Republican. 
What do you think?

Dear Eugene Robinson, One Simple Question

Eugene Robinson
Leave it to Eugene Robinson, the giggling guy on the Olberman show from a few years back (which I listened to and didn't know he was black for a long time but when I realized that, it didn't change my mind about how silly some of his ideas are) wrote a real eye-roller of a column over at his home at the Washington Post on the Supreme Court's ruling that Obamacare stands as the largest tax increase EVER.

Funny thing is that he never mentioned "tax."  

Here are some of the more eye-rolling comments he said:

"Much more important is what the ruling means in the long term for the physical and moral health of the nation."

Moral?  Moral?  Tell me where in the 2000 page document where Obama heals our moral health?  I'll save you some time: NEVER!

"the Affordable Care Act was intended as just a beginning. We have far to go, but at least we're on our way."

Oh yeah. This is great.  Just like a Utopian statist.  All of their big initiatives are beginnings.  Never done.  Never done tinkering.  Never happy to leave people alone.

Now Mr. Robinson gives us the biggest eye-roller yet when he talks about the silly system we have now where your job gives you your health insurance:

"this is a haphazard and inefficient delivery route that puts U.S. businesses at a disadvantage against foreign competitors, most of which shoulder no such burden. Tying health insurance to the workplace also distorts the labor market and discourages entrepreneurship by forcing some employees to stay where they are — even in dead-end jobs..."

Oh this is rich.  I agree that businesses providing health insurance is not good because it creates this silly 3rd party system where nobody really knows the cost of what you are getting.  But here you have a liberal progressive democrat who is pretending to care about entrepreneurs and US business competitiveness.  That is the funniest joke EVER!  Mr. Robinson doesn't give a fig for business!  And yet...this is where all the money comes from to buy the POST!


"When that next big push takes place, it will be with the underlying assumption that health care should be available to all who need it regardless of their ability to pay — that it is not a privilege but a right."

Regardless of their ability to pay?  And who will pay Mr. Robinson?  One simple question.  Who will pay?

The Joni Mitchell Rule when it comes to #Obamacare. "You don't know what you've got till it's gone."

Good old EJ Dionne has another doozy of a worthless article at the Washington post.  He's pre-lamenting the death of Obamacare and throwing about silly statements.  But the silliest of all that I read was the bit at the end about Joni Mitchell and "You don't know what you've got till it's gone."  

Now that I come to think of it, the younger generation probably only knows the Counting Crows version of that "You paved paradise and put up a parking lot."  But this quote can easily be used on the conservative side.  If Obamacare is found to be kind of Constitutional (kind of because it isn't but it kind of is according to the Justices) then gosh won't most Americans feel soon what they've lost?  

Honestly, Obamacare, I think, wouldn't affect too many people who already have health insurance.  Of course if their company just dumps them on the national system then they will be affected.  But remember, Obama said that HE wouldn't change your healthcare if you liked it.  When the people come screaming that their healthcare was changed, he'll ask them a simple question, 

"Who changed your health care?"

"My company!"


"But because of your stupid law!"

"There's no evidence of that.  But even if there was, what I told you was the truth.  I never changed your healthcare.  Your stingy rich boss did."

"yeah, that's right. He is rich.  Rich AND stingy."

Then madness ensues.

Read the garbage at E.J. Dionne Columns and Blog Posts

Thursday, June 21, 2012

E.J. Dionne is a very dangerous man...but he should keep writing so we can continue laughing at him!

Mr. Dionne again.  He says that European problems are nothing like our problems.  Greece is nothing like us.  Then he goes ahead and compares US problems with European problems.  Quite convincingly so.  

He also says that the bank bailout, pouring money on banks who knowingly lent money to people with no money, was good and that the auto bailout, surpassing the actual people who invested in GM and giving all the money and ownership to the UAW, was a good thing!  

Early in the recession, the feds were able to offset problems in the country's most troubled regions with a stimulus program (and also with that auto bailout that so many, including Mitt Romney, opposed). The stimulus should have been bigger, and it should have extended over a longer period. But it helped.
Second, we bailed out our banks right away and also have a more effective central bank. We thus avoided some of the problems now facing Europe, notably in Spain. 

So EJ Dionne is FOR Crony Capitalism.  I see.

Later in the article he mentions that all we really need is growth and government can spend and spend and spend and that will help boost the economy.  The Republicans should agree to:

"pump more money into state governments and into infrastructure spending to speed a decline in unemployment."

Really?  I have one question for Mr. Dionne.  Where will all that money come from?  From collecting taxes?  Why then are you so sure that the government officials and bureaucrats would spend that money more wisely than the people who earned it in the first place?

This kind of "educated think" is just so sad because it just defies logic.

After the Wisconsin Recall #wirecall Now I can say that I think Obama is smart. He stayed out of it!

Exasperated Liberal: Can't you tell me anything good that Obama has done?  Just one thing?
Me: Sure, now I can!
Exasperated Liberal: Oh ok. Good, what's that?
Me: He stayed out of Wisconsin's Recall Election.  That was smart, a good move and intelligent.
Exasperated Liberal: WTF!??  (Liberal's head explodes.)

Obama win could cost Romney $5M in personal taxes

-As if this is a good thing.  If Romney's taxes are going up under another Obama 4 years what about the rest of us?  
If Obama wins, Romney and EVERYONE gets taxed their butts off.  
If Romney wins, Obama and everyone won't get their butts taxed off!  Hmmmmm... tough decision. 
Romney would owe taxman $5M more under Obama's plan than under his own tax ...
Washington Post
He'd save as much as $90000 a year if Romney's plan were enacted rather than his own tax-the-rich vision. Two nonprofit research groups, the liberal-leaning Citizens for Tax Justice and conservative-leaning Tax Foundation, did the calculations, ...

Obama win could cost Romney $5M in personal taxes
Atlanta Journal Constitution
For President Obama, losing re-election could provide a tax windfall, saving him as much as $90000 a year if Mitt Romney's plan were enacted rather than his own tax-the-rich vision.

Obama Win Could Cost Mitt Romney $5 Million Annually
The Inquisitr
So Romney would pay approximately $7.8 million under President Obama's tax the rich plan and just $3 million under his own plan. On the other hand Obama would claim an effective tax rate under his own plan of 28% which based on income of $790000 in ...

Can Someone Explain Why E.J. Dionne is a credible journalist/commentator?

I try to read and or listen to all sides.  I want to be a good American and listen to both sides.  But WTF?!?  If the other side is as brainless and "holier than thou" as E.J. Dionne, then maybe I'll just go back to reading Breitbart and listening to Rush and save myself some time.

In Dionne's new piece at the Wash Po he laments about the possibility of wasting the next 5 months and 2 billion dollars on the election if we haven't come to a conclusion about what we're really talking about in terms of the issues.  So he decides to spell out HIS issues and it's hilarious.

But instead of boring you with his article I'll just get to the money quote and we'll be done with it.

Conservatives might rebel against the way I frame our objectives. In talking about the budget, I do not even bring up reducing taxes. That is because I think the evidence shows that if we are serious about balancing the budget, government needs more revenue.  

1.  Not object, but rebel.  I thought liberals were all about rebelling?

2.  "evidence shows" yet no evidence mentioned.

3.  Evidence shows what exactly? That people who make money, then forced to give it to government who then redistribute it to others, are most likely going to keep working hard for the ever decreasing amount that they "get to keep"?  Look back on the theories of human motivation!

4.  serious about balancing the budget?  Since when did it take more money to balance the budget?  Key Word EJ: Balance.

5.  Gov't needs more revenue.  Really?  To dump down the rat hole that is Solyndra?  To waste it on research on the sexual practices of autistic snails in Brazil?  Or do they need more revenue to pay down the debt because we know how big a joke that is.

There's so much more to this article that even a lowly blogger like me doesn't even want to waste my time refuting it.  Mr. Dionne is a frequent guest on Rachel Maddow's show which I also torture myself listening to it.  Recently he's been overly appreciative of her having him as a guest on the show.  Perhaps that's the only show who will have him.  Sad. 

Advice time: Mr. Dionne, read 2 Thomas Sowell books and write an e-mail to me in 2 months.  Then tell me if you've been cured of your silliness.

Bring on the jobs debate: 4 Arguments for Obama vs. Romney on Jobs

Roger Hedgecock wrote a good piece here on World Net Daily called "Bring on the Jobs Debate."  There are good points he makes.  Here's the money quote:

President Obama has pursued a government-led, debt-financed "stimulus" and investments in "green" companies while Romney at Bain pursued a private capital rescue of failing companies.

But for fun, let's think about the arguments that Obama might give about his horrible jobs track record:

1.  "Mitt Romney's been at this much longer than I have, give me four more years and I'll invest MORE making sure they win!!"

2.  "Who needs another Domino's Pizza or Staples?  Why didn't Bain Capital believe in green energy?"

3.  "Romney's investments failed too!"

4.  "Vote for me and government-led, debt-financed "stimulus" investments are all we're going to have.  Oh and donate to my campaign so that you can get some of the love spread around!"

Can you think of any other arguments that Obama could make?!

(Chinese) Culture Still Matters - From Victor Davis Hanson

A wicked smart guy, columnist and historian, Victor Davis Hanson's latest piece  talks about the cultural differences in Europe but it has amazing similarities in China.  He writes:

But government-driven efforts to change national behavior often ignore stubborn cultural differences that reflect centuries of complex history as well as ancient habits and adaptations to geography and climate. Greeks can no more easily give up siestas than the Swiss can mandate two-hour afternoon naps. If tax cheating is a national pastime in Palermo, by comparison it is difficult along the Rhine.

This is so true as what's been happening in China for the last 60 or so years.  Government driven efforts to overcome the culture and in each attempt they failed.  The Chinese will always yearn to breath free and make money no matter what the government and what the political situation.

Mr. Hanson continues:

...over the years I have developed an unscientific and haphazard -- but often accurate -- politically incorrect method of guessing whether a nation is likely to be perennially insolvent and wracked by corruption.
Do average passersby throw down or pick up litter? After a minor fender-bender, do drivers politely exchange information, or do they scream and yell with wild gesticulations? Is honking constant or sporadic? Are crosswalks sacrosanct? Do restaurant dinners usually start or wind down at 9 P.M.? Can you drink tap water, or should you avoid it? Do you mostly pay what the price tag says, or are you expected to pay in untaxed cash and then haggle over the unstated cost? Are construction sites clearly marked and fenced to protect pedestrians, or do you risk walking into an open pit or getting stabbed by exposed rebar?

The only thing in that list that wouldn't fit with China is the restaurant closing at 9pm. The rest of that is ALL the spitting image of China.  Amazing.  Perhaps he's correct as China is wracked with corruption and soon to be insolvent!

2, 3, Many Obamas - Victor Davis Hanson

I had been thinking this before.  How we're told by many Democrats that oil is bad, fossil fuels are bad for us.  Then suddenly we're told that Obama has been drilling more than anybody ever or something.  Wait, which is it?  Are we drilling or do we think oil is bad?  It gets to the point where you have to look the Obama Supporter in the eyes and ask them:  "Do you believe what he just said?"

I recall that once upon a time Obama derided fossil fuels, bragging that "millions of new green jobs" would accrue from subsidizing wind and solar power and "bankrupting" coal companies, as energy prices would accordingly "skyrocket." But then once upon another time, Obama bragged that on his watch we are pumping more oil than ever before, apparently because private firms ignored his pleas and drilled despite his efforts to shut down leasing on public lands. So we are to credit Obama for stopping oil leasing on public lands, which forced greater production on private lands, while being impressed that he lost billions subsidizing doomed solar and wind companies? When the government fails to promote new energy, that constitutes success because those outside the government then must do more? Do the various Obamas represent both the good but failed intention and the bad successful one?

Media Bias: 2 books, 2 standards, for Obama, Bush

Comparing "Fortunate Son" a book about Bush published in 2000 before the election and Klein's new book "The Amateur" about Obama.
Byron York writes:
Unlike the media storm over "Fortunate Son," the Wright revelation has attracted very little comment in the press. The Associated Press and most of those outlets that talked about Bush and cocaine? They've had little or nothing to say about Jeremiah Wright and alleged payoffs.

Atheists and Muslims Clash in Melbourne Australia, both shout "INFIDELS"

Some Muslims showed up at the 2012 Atheist Convention in Australia. This is what happened :)
h/t Instapundit.

This is hilarious.  The Atheists (God bless them) were finally fed up with being yelled at and they retaliated.  They chanted "Where are the women?" Sang songs, also chanted "ZZ TOP!"  Hilarious.

Unfortunately on our side of the pond, the #OWS (Occupy Wall Street) and Atheists and Radical Muslims would be working together I'm sure.
