No new ideas???

August 26, 2010

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: They have not come up with a single, solitary new idea to address the challenges of the American people.

I am getting sick and tired of hearing President Obama say these words.  Let me be the one to challenge the President to a debate on the truthfulness of the statement, and the implication that he is ATTEMPTING to make.

First.   When he says they, he means the Republicans.  OK, I agree with the President. “They” have NOT offered up any NEW ideas. 

The ideas that they have offered up have, however, been PROVEN effective in the recent past.  There are three large examples, since the start of the industrial revolution, and they were done by President Calvin Coolidge, President John F. Kennedy, and President Ronald Reagan.  That is two Republicans and one DEMOCRAT.  Let me say this again.  These ideas, mainly CUTTING taxes, have been done by both parties, in the difficult times (some say worse than the “Great Depression”) of the early 20’s (have you heard of the Roaring 20’s?), the difficult times of the early 60’s, and the oil/confidence recession of the late 70’s/early 80’s.  I would argue that the tax cuts of  Reagan, and the temporary defeat of communist Soviet Union, produced the great expansion of the 90’s and first part of 2000’s.  If you have more questions, please ask, please research, please become informed.  You may or may not agree with my assertions, but I will debate them.  Let’s see who can make the best case.

So far the President’s statement is absolutely TRUE!!

Second.  Lets examine the implication that President Obama is making with his statement.  His implication is, “We have come up with a single, solitary new idea to address the challenges of the American people.”  When he says “we”, he means the Democrats.

NO!!!!  Mr. President YOU have not come up with any NEW ideas.  Your ideas are all OLDER than the ones, discussed above, put forward by the “they” (Republicans).  Not only that, but, they have been the PROVEN failures of Socialism, Communism, Fascism and Statism.  These are the ideas of Stalin, Lenin, Mussolini, Hitler.  STOP, please do not dismiss this argument because I have used the dreaded Hitler word!!!!  I am NOT comparing President Obama’s ideas to the MURDEROUS ideas of Hitler.  I am comparing their economic policies.  All of these policies lead to Statism.  I am sorry that I can not cite the author of the next statement, but it is not mine.  I am repeating it, because it is true.  “The problem with all of these political systems is, that in the end, there can be only ONE.”  Meaning, they will all tend towards a Dictatorship.  Examples of this are Cuba, Venezuela, Iraq, Iran, North Korea, the old Soviet Union and eastern bloc.

So, Mr. President, I will TAKE the no NEW ideas from the Republicans that are currently being offered, because they have been PROVEN to work!!  I will DECLINE your NEW ideas, that are just OLDER ideas, that have been proven Failures.  The definition of STUPIDITY (remember the Cambridge Police?) is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.  Lets decide who is being STUPID!!

Ground Zero Mosque

August 18, 2010

I thought everyone would like this quote, I think it is all you need to say to defend your opposition to the building of the Mosque at Ground Zero.

It is not a way of improving your rights and exercising your freedoms when you use these rights for insulting the most sacred values and symbols of others and inciting hatred…This is a very wrong, provocative path — unacceptable.”

I think that says it all.  Who said that, you ask?

It is from Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the Turkish Secretary General of the Jeddah-based Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), the world’s unique pan-Islamic political body, comprised of 57 members, including secular Turkey.  Here is the quote as printed in the American Thinker and here is the original audio.  Unfortunately he was stating his, and Islams, opposition to the printing of 12 CARTOONS

But, I would like to say thank you, to Mr. Ihsanoglu, for so eloquently stating the reason for opposing the Ground Zero Mosque.

The National Deficit

August 17, 2010

Anyone who reads this post, I am imploring you to PLEASE help.  We need to educate our fellow Americans on the workings of the Government.  Here is a link to Pew Research Center results from a recent poll that they have conducted.  And below is results of a question that are causing the problem that I am having:

“Thinking about the economic stimulus passed by Congress last year. Do you think the stimulus has [see below] or not?”
 
    Yes No Unsure    
    % % %    
 
  “Increased the federal budget deficit”
  7/15-18/10 66 23 11

Seriously???  I will give the 11 percent the benefit of the doubt or say at least they KNOW that they do not know.  But, the other 23%??  Seriously???  Does anyone here actually believe that the stimulus ($800 BILLION, plus or minus) has NOT contributed to the National Deficit?? 

Please let me know, we can have a conversation about this.  If you know someone who falls in this 23%, please sit them down and explain it (nicely) to them.

Obama and the Ground Zero Mosque…

August 17, 2010

I was watching the news this past weekend, and was unsurprised to watch Obama step in a great big pile of …  Seriously, the President should have people around him that should be saying, “hey, Mr. President, watch your step, the first dog just took a dump right there.”

But then I heard this quote from Prsident Obama, “I was not commenting and I will not comment on the wisdom of making the decision to put a mosque there,” he claimed. “I was commenting very specifically on the right people have that dates back to our founding. That’s what our country is about. In America, we treat everybody equally and in accordance with the law, regardless of race, regardless of religion.” (I would have posted the video, but in a brief search was unable to find a link.  Bold is MY emphasis.)  At this point I had to yell at the TV.

NO!!  Mr. President, YOU are NOT treating everybody equally AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAW, regardless of RACE.  YOU are refusing to ENFORCE EXISTING LAWS that deal with ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.  You are even suing the state of Arizona for trying to help the federal government enforce the law.  IF someone is here ILLEGALLY, they have ALREADY BROKEN the LAW. 

Mr. President, enforce the existing laws, that is YOUR job!!!  Your job is NOT to try to jam through ObamaNONCare, or Cap and Tax, or Amnesty, or etc.  What say you, Mr. President?

The farce that is the CENSUS!!!!

August 12, 2010

I love this article on Fox News compared to this article from the Juneau Empire.  I hope that the Juneau Empire will correct the title of their article, “Totem pole, after boosting 2010 census count, heads to new home”.  According to the Census Department, the census count in Alaska was down from 2000.  Which also got me thinking…

The part I love the most about the Fox article, and checking other Census articles, are the quotes “Sixty-two percent of Alaska residents mailed back their census forms in 2010, compared with 64 percent in 2000” and “the mail-in response rate nationwide clocked in at 72 percent — same as a decade ago”.  Now my questions:

1.  If they KNOW the percentage that answered – 72% of the total or 62% of Alaskans – WHY do they need to do the census??  They need to know the total BEFORE they can calculate the percentage of responders.

2.  If they DO NOT know the total, how can they KNOW the percentage of responders.
This is just more MADE UP government numbers, for which WE pay too much.  Next time, I will give them the numbers and they can pay ME 10% of the cost this year.  I’ll bet my numbers are just as good as theirs!!!

How much money has Shirley Sherrod bilked US for??

August 11, 2010

Questions need to be asked!!!

And ANSWERS need to be given!!!

There is more to the story about Mrs. Sherrod.

Read this (from the Washington Examiner), it appears that Mrs. Sherrod may have sued herself into her position.  What did Obama know and when did he know it??

And….WHERE has she gone???   Is the media so afraid that it will continue to show the incompetence of this administration, that they now refuse to ask questions???  Sometimes I wish Bush was still in office.  At least the media would be asking questions!!!!

Censorship???

August 9, 2010

Are they serious??  Here is an article from Big Government that I have to comment on.  This article is alerting everyone about a Geauga County Board of Elections (Ohio) suit against a lone blogger.  Apparently, the Board would like to censor this blogger because he dares to criticize them and does not tell everyone his name. 

Personally, I think this is fantastic!!! I hope the board wins in their case against this blogger. Then when WE have a precedent that  WE can demand that everyone include the information needed in ANY political article. This will INCLUDE the names of ALL the owners and their political contributions, the support of the writers, editors, publishers, parent companies, board members, union support, etc. I want to know what political parties/causes are supported by:

  1. the Author,
  2. the Editor,
  3. the Publisher,
  4. the Reporter,
  5. the supporting cast
  6. the Officers of the Corporation/Union/Non Profit,
  7. the Corporation/Union/Non Profit,
  8. the Board Members of the Corporation/Union/Non Profit,
  9. the majority Shareholders,
  10. the PAC (who funds them, and their relationships)

 WE need more transparency!!! This is the information that I want public.  What say you MSNBC, NBC (both owned by GE), CBS, ABC, NYTimes, LATimes, Soros, Media Matters, SEIU, ACORN, ACLU, NAACP, AARP??? That sound you hear is the sound of crickets as they just realized that this ruling WILL affect them. I hope they get their original wish.

This looks like “pork spending” from “pork spending”…

August 5, 2010

Are you kidding me??

When is the American public going to say enough is enough?

Here is the article, from the Washington Post, that details how “Government Motors” is now funding Politicians’ Pet Projects.  It is not as if the Congressional Black Caucus does not have enough corruption perception problems (Rangel and Waters) as detailed here and here.  Why is it that IF the liars thiefs corrupt Politians can not insert their pet projects into a bill that they pass, as an “ear mark”, they think it is better to have another tax payer funded project, do it??  Stop the madness!!!

At least “Government Motors” could pay US back first!!

The Red state/Blue state question???

August 3, 2010

I always wondered about the colors that depict the states leaning towards the Democrats and the states leaning towards the Republicans during Election reporting.  Especially on Network News or MSM.  And how did they all come to use the same colors??

After revelations about the JournoList, as revealed on the Daily Caller, I think all questions are more relevant.

Why did the Democrats get to be Blue??

Why did the Republicans end up with Red??

Could this be a subliminal suggestion to the masses to try and shape their responses??

Here are a couple of excerpts from Color Psychology:

Blue – Blue is described as a favorite color by many people and is the color most preferred by men.  Blue calls to mind feelings of calmness or serenity. It is often described as peaceful, tranquil, secure, and orderly.

Red – Red is a bright, warm color that evokes strong emotions.  Red is also considered an intense, or even angry, color that creates feelings of excitement or intensity.

Who picked these colors?? and why??  What were their intentions??

Should we change these colors to be more neutral??  Perhaps the Democrats can keep blue, but maybe Republicans can pick….green? 

Remember I am not a Psychologist, but I could play one on TV.  Provided they would pay me, of course.
