The United States Is Now Number One

Since Japan has lowered its corporate income tax rate, consistent with what is happening around the world, the US now has the highest corporate income tax rate in the world.   We are now Number One, which is a very bad distinction.  Socialist President Obama wants to lower our corporate income tax rate from 35% to 28%; but along with it, Obama wants to tax overseas profits that remain overseas and are already taxed in those countries.  If this were to happen, it would cause a trade war of sorts as other countries respond in ways that mitigate the effect of this crazy idea.  The impact of Obama's Socialist Scheme would be to actually raise corporate income taxes for major global companies so it would be very counterproductive.   Beware of any Socialist talking about tax cuts because they are rarely real cuts.

Here are the facts.  Several hundred thousand American companies that do not have overseas operations and that do not benefit from various loopholes and gimmicks in the tax code, which typically benefit very large companies, pay a federal corporate income tax rate of 35% along with average state income taxes of 5%.   So many American companies are paying about 40% of their profits to federal and state government.  This does not include payroll taxes, which amount to 7.65% of payroll to fund Social Security and Medicare, local property taxes, one way or another and various business taxes and other fees required to do business.  This gets these companies up to around 50% real quick.   So how is this different from Communism, where all the means of production were owned and controlled by the state? 

In addition, companies that provide their employees health insurance are getting killed as premiums continue to go up despite ObamaCare.  Finally, all companies in the United States must spend a considerable amount of money in legal and accounting fees to comply with all sorts of regulations and frivolous lawsuits.  Obama, in fact, has added 11,000 regulations since his election that are all job killers.  This is in addition to thousands of other state and federal regulations already on the books. 

Socialist President Obama, as part of his Class Warfare argument to get his PEEP's to the polls, has also singled out oil and coal companies and banks as enemies of the people calling for higher taxes and more regulations on these industries.  Of course, if these things were allowed to happen, we would just see higher costs passed on to consumers; i.e. higher gas and energy costs and bank fees.  It is already happening.  

The reality is that all subsidies, loop holes and gimmicks in the tax code that benefits any company, or industry should be eliminated.  That would include agricultural subsidies, ethanol subsidies, subsidies for green technology and oil companies and any other industry that benefits from crony capitalism.   We should just allow the free market to work based on supply and demand and nothing more.  The corporate income tax rate should be brought down to the average of the top ten industrial countries in the world to make the US competitive.  This is just common sense, something often lacking in Washington DC. 

I suspect that would give us a federal corporate income tax rate of about 22%.   From there, taxes should be computed by simply taking revenues, generated in the US and subtracting expenses and depreciation to determine pre-tax profit.  Federal corporate income tax would then be determined by simply multiplying pre-tax profit by 22%.   Just think, a simplified tax code might mean we won't even need accountants just to figure out what we owe.    

Of course, none of this will happen as long as Obama and his Socialist pals in Congress control any branch of government, which is another reason we must sweep them all out of office in 2012 and 2014.  The current corporate tax code gives US companies an incentive to move jobs and revenues overseas.   Companies, like people, vote with their feet when taxes are too high.   We are competing with countries like Germany, Canada, Ireland, China and many others that have corporate tax rates of 20% or below.   As long as this continues, the US is not competitive and we will continue to see many companies move operations overseas.  It is time for Congress and the President to fix this problem; however, it will not happen until we have a Republican President and Congress. 

The elections of 2012 and 2014 are perhaps the most important in 70 years.  There is no doubt that we have to take back our country to prevent the bankruptcy of the United States and that means defeating both Socialists and RINO's.  To do so, we must sweep Socialists, at all levels of government, including President Obama, out of office.   We can do it.  We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren. 

We have to reform our tax code, including lowering both personal and corporate income tax rates by getting rid of all the loop holes, deductions and crazy gimmicks in the tax code that distort the economy.  Only when we make this happen will we see economic growth and job creation again in our country.  To get there, we must make Obama a one term President.  So put on your hip boots because we have to drain the swamp in Washington DC.  It is dirty, stinky work; but we have to do it to take back our country.

Obama Betraying Israel

Since the outcome would be uncertain, the very last thing Socialist President Obama wants is for Israel to strike Iran to destroy their nuclear capability before our election.   As are result, it has been reported that Obamanistas are actually leaking classified information related to Israel's game plan to get the job done to prevent it from happening.   This Blogger will not repeat what has been leaked because it would further compromise Israel's military plans.   There is no doubt that these leaks would never happen without Obama's approval.   President Obama is so desperate to win reelection that he would betray Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, and our long time ally.   It is shameful and dangerous and could cause Israel to act sooner than later to avoid further compromise of their position by Obama.   

While Obama is worried about staying in office, Israel is concerned about the very survival of their nation.  Iran is not only building nuclear weapons, they have threatened to wipe Israel off the face of the map.   Given 5,000 years of Jewish history and the Holocaust in particular, Israeli leaders cannot ignore these pronouncements.  Jews have suffered at the hands of madmen before and as a result, they have rightfully learned the lessons of history.   Never Again, Never Again.

What they also see in Socialist President Obama is a man they can't trust.  Heck, many Americans don't trust him either.  When Obama confided to Russian President Demetri Mednevev that after his reelection Obama would have more "flexibility", just think of what that might signal to the Israeli's.  Presumably, Obama was talking about eliminating our missile defense in Europe and other parts of the world and dismantling our nuclear arsenal, both Russian demands, but could Obama also be talking about walking away from our historical support for Israel.  The Russians and the Chinese support Iran rather than Israel.  In Obama's need to be loved, he could make concessions on Iran that would endanger Israel.  Based on experience to date, nothing would surprise this Blogger. 

Israel needs to do what Israel needs to do to protect their nation.  As long as Obama is in office they can't count on the United States.  If Israeli leaders feel that a tipping point is being reached that would prevent them from destroying Iran's nuclear capability, then they need to act.  It is very clear that they cannot depend on President Obama for support; though it is very likely that any strike on Iran will almost certainly involve the United States in order for us to protect our interests in the Middle East.   This is happening because Socialist President Obama is perceived as weak overseas.   Iran is emboldened by Obama's weakness, which is the reason they continue to thumb their nose at the President and  other Western countries.  

Socialist President Obama will continue to play the sanctions game giving Iran more time to develop nuclear weapons.  That strategy has failed, which is the reason we are where we are today.  Israel is facing a life or death decision.  It is too bad they are also dealing with a President of the United States, Barack Obama, that they can't trust.   We have to make Obama a one term President in 2012 to preserve not only our freedom, nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren; but also for the sake of the people of Israel.    

Senator Dirty Harry Reid - Missing In Action

Socialist Senator Dirty Harry Reid of Nevada, the Senate Majority Leader, is missing in action.   Once again this year, the House of Representatives will send over a budget enacted this week in accordance with the law.   And, once again, Senator Reid will not allow this budget to come up for a vote.   So for about three years, the United States of America has operated with no annual budget, using continuing resolutions to fund the business of our country.   Why is Senator Dirty Harry Reid collecting his $174,000 salary if he refuses to do his job.  Beats the heck out of me.  Oh, I forgot, Harry and his family of lobbyists have been feeding at the trough for years during Harry's "service" in Washington, while Harry lives at the Ritz Carlton.  You don't become a millionaire like Harry on $174,000 a year; that's for sure. 

In any case, the Republican House of Representatives, enacted Congressman's Paul Ryan's budget, again this year, which cuts spending by about $5 Trillion in the next ten years, reforms entitlements, and simplifies the income tax code to two personal rates of 25% and 10% and a 25% corporate tax rate by getting rid of most deductions and loop holes.   Even if this budget was enacted by Congress and signed by the President, which will not happen,  the National Debt would grow by $3 Trillion in the next ten years.  But, at least the Ryan budget provides a path to ending deficit spending and paying off the National Debt.  

The budget proposed by Socialist President Obama would result in adding a probable $10 Trillion to the National Debt in the next ten years, even with tax increases and never does end deficit spending, or pay off the National Debt.   It is a road to the bankruptcy of the United States.  Of course, the President's budget was defeated in the House of Representatives by a vote of 400 to 0, since not even the Socialists support President Obama's budget and it will probably never be voted on in the Senate.   

The House of Representatives has passed dozens of bills that would help restore economic growth and job creation in America, many with bi-partisan support.  In addition to a Budget, Socialist Senator Dirty Harry Reid will not allow these bills to come up for a vote in the Senate because he knows that many of them would be enacted into law.   The United States Senate, as managed by Senator Dirty Harry Reid, is completely dysfunctional.   We tried to FIRE Harry Reid during the last election, but with big union support and his usual crooked shenanigans, he was able to hang on to his seat.  

Now the best we can hope for is that Republicans will take back the US Senate in 2012 and/or 2014 to remove incompetent Reid from his leadership position.   Some have speculated that Reid, who is about 70 years old would resign from the Senate if he loses the leadership position.  The Blogger knows that unless Reid is carried out on a gurney, or loses an election in Nevada, that Reid is not going anywhere because his family is making millions as a result of his position in the Senate.  Socialist Senator Dirty Harry Reid hit the lotto when he got elected six terms ago.   And, Harry Reid has milked it for everything he can since then.  

We need to take back our country in 2012 and 2014 by sweeping these Socialists, at all levels of government, including President Obama and Harry Reid, out of power.   These incompetent characters are a clear and present danger to our country.   Their reckless spending is leading to the bankruptcy of the United States, which will eventually will cause civil strife on our streets and a loss of our sovereignty.  Just look to Greece and other countries to see the end of our story if we don't remove these Socialists from office.   We can't let that happen.  We can do it.   We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren. 

In the mean time, Americans and Nevadans, call our Senator, dear old, old, old Harry Reid and tell him to do his job for the money we pay him and the money he steals in the process.  Reid needs to bring the Ryan Budget and other House enacted bills up for a vote.  Or, if Reid refuses to call for a vote on the Ryan Budget, then propose a Socialist Budget, or vote on the President's budget.  It is time to put a Socialist alternative on the table and let the chips fall where they fall.   After all, Harry, you should know, that is what we do in Nevada when we play the game.

Obama At War With The Catholic Church

Socialist President Obama claims to be a Christian.   How would we know if that is true.   Obama went to Reverend Wright's church in Chicago and listened to Black Liberation Theology for 20 years.  Obama claimed that while there he never heard all of Wright's hate filled, anti-Semitic, racist proclamations.   Maybe Obama was day dreaming during all those sermons.  In any case, this Blogger does not believe that Obama is a Christian, Muslim, or any other religion.  Socialists, like Obama worship big government.  Government is their God.

President Obama is at war with the Catholic Church.  That should be no surprise to anyone because the lame stream left, wing media and Hollywood, Obama's PEEP's, have been at war with the Catholic Church for years because of Catholic opposition to abortion and gay marriage.  The most recent fight, insisting that the Catholic Church provide health insurance for their employees that pays for Birth Control and the Morning After Abortion Pill is just an extension of the culture war going on in our country.   The real battle here is all about abortion.  Socialists would like to see abortion covered under ObamaCare no matter what they say.   This Blogger, as a practicing Catholic, has made absolutely sure that the health insurance provided my employees by my company does not cover abortion.   Since we pay 70% of the cost, there is no way we will participate in infanticide.     

Whether Catholics use Birth Control, or not is irrelevant, the very notion that the federal government would force the Catholic Church to violate their religious beliefs, by providing these health benefits to their employees, is a violation of the First Amendment of the Constitution, guaranteeing freedom of religion.  This also technically should apply to business owners, practicing their faith, when they purchase health insurance for their employees.   This Blogger has drawn a line in the sand at abortion.   

This fight is not about Birth Control, which is readily available for free from Planned Parenthood, or at Wal Mart for $9.99 a month.   This fight is about religious freedom and federal government over reach.  Obama was advised by Vice President Joe Biden, a Catholic and others in his Administration, not to go down this road; but Obama is so desperate to motivate his PEEP's to vote for his reelection, that Obama decided to pick this fight.  Unfortunately for Obama, Timothy Cardinal Dolan of New York City, the highest ranking Catholic in the United States and the other Bishops in America have drawn a line in the sand. 

Dolan is apparently up to the fight, actually doing interviews on TV, opposing Obama's attack on religious freedom.   In 2008, 54% of Catholics voted for Obama.   Catholics make up 28% of the population and in some swing states the numbers are even higher.   While the Catholic Church does not tell people how to vote; priests and Bishops are standing up for religious freedom during sermons.   Obama needs Catholic votes to win reelection.  It appears this time around many Catholics will end up voting for a Mormon.  Go figure.   Counting the days until November to make Obama a one term President.  Wish it could happen sooner; but we will have to wait for election day .

Obama - A Threat To Our National Security

In a private meeting, that became very public as a result of an open microphone, Socialist President Obama told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he will have more "flexibility" after this reelection, presumably to deal with eliminating our missile defense and nuclear weapons.  Medvedev told Obama he would inform Vladamir Putin, reelected to President, of Obama's "flexibility".  This Blogger is scared to death at the prospect of an Obama second term because not only is Obama bankrupting our country, he is a clear and present danger to our National Security.  

Obama unilaterally disarmed our country when he said early on in his administration that the US would never be first to use nuclear weapons.  The problem with that strategy is that there may not be a chance to be second.  Most important, taking the notion of a preemptive strike to preserve our nation and telling that to our enemies is just plain dumb and very dangerous.  Further, Obama betrayed our allies in Poland and the Czech Republic when he pulled our missile defense system out of those countries as protection against Iranian missiles coming into Europe, at the insistence of the Russians without getting anything in return; again dumb, dumb, dumb. 

Obama's need to be loved, probably stemming from his childhood, when he was abandoned by his parents, makes him very dangerous to our country.  The Russians are pushing for elimination of our missile defense system and much of our nuclear arms because they don't have the technology or financial resources to keep up.  This is the reason way Medvedev was immediately critical of Mitt Romney, the probable Republican nominee for the Presidency for his criticism of Socialist President Obama over this "flexibility" remark.   Mitt Romney has made it very clear that if elected, he will maintain a strong US Military, second to none, as opposed to Obama's plan to seriously diminish the size and capabilities of our military.  No wonder the Russians support Obama.   

The problem, however, is not so much Russia, though they are a threat; but China, Iran and North Korea that pose a real threat to our National Security.  President Obama is either naive, stupid or treasonous when it comes to International Relations and protecting our National Security.   As a Socialist, Obama is a one world guy who would surrender our decision making power and national sovereignty to other nations and or the United Nations.  Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta even said as much during testimony before Congress, when Panetta said we would have to get permission from other countries to go to war.  Since when?  While the President needs to gain approval from Congress to go to war, there is nothing in our Constitution that requires us to seek permission from any other country to do anything.  And, in fact, we would never want that to be the case. 

Voters beware, Socialist President Obama is a clear and present danger to our nation.   An Obama in a second term, unfettered by a next election, will move ever further to the left in his goal to transform America into a Socialist country than has occurred in his first term.  That means Obama will hollow out our military and surrender our national sovereignty to other countries.  Instead of eliminating our missile defense, we should be building more.  And, instead of eliminating our nuclear weapons, they should be modernized.   The best way to keep the peace is to be the strongest country in the world, second to none.   It is when we are weak that we face danger. 

Machiavelli posed the question in his book the Prince, is it better for the Prince to be feared or loved.  Obama's need to be loved is dangerous to our National Security.  Instead, in order for the United States to maintain the peace, the President must be feared so that no country would dare test our resolve.   It is very clear that Obama is loved overseas because he is very weak.   If the Israeli's don't act soon, Iran will have nuclear weapons in the next few years.   No matter what he says, Obama will do nothing meaningful to prevent this from happening.  Sanctions will not work as Iran just plays the West for time to get their nuclear program in place.  And by the way, both China and Russia are supporting Iran, which hardly makes them friends of the United States.  

President Obama, may or may not have been born in the United States; but either way, he is not an American working in the best interest of our country.   This President in apparently intentionally out to bankrupt our country in his quest to "transform" our country into a Socialist nation.  When Obama speaks of his "flexibility" after reelection, he is talking about weakening our country and surrendering our national sovereignty to other countries.   We can't allow any of this to happen.  We have to make Obama a one term President in 2012.

In fact, we have to sweep Socialists at all levels of government out of office in 2012 and 2014 because they are all a clear and present danger to our country.  We have to put on our hip boots and drain the swamp in Washington DC to take back our country.  We can do it.  We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.  Clearly, President Obama is a threat to our national security.  Obama has to go and the sooner the better.

Socialist Perverted Thinking On Taxes

In testimony before a House of Representatives Committee, tax cheat, Socialist Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner refused to acknowledge that about 50% of Americans pay no income taxes at all to support the activities of the federal government.   Instead, Geithner insisted that all working Americans pay income taxes because they normally pay 7.65% of their earnings for Social Security and Medicare contributions.   The fact that 6.2% is paid to cover a pension in the future and that 1.45% is deducted to pay for medical care, after the age of 65, is apparently irrelevant to Socialists.  

This perverted thinking does show that Socialist see both Social Security and Medicare contributions as just another form of income taxes to do with as they please.  This is probably the reason they have been stealing this money since 1965 to spend on annual operating expenses, rather than putting our Social Security and Medicare contributions away in the infamous "lock box" to pay for these future benefits.   For this reason, both Social Security and Medicare face bankruptcy.   These trust funds are sitting on a bunch of federal government IOU's.  The money to pay these benefits is gone with the wind.   Why aren't our elected representatives that perpetrated this crime in jail rather than in Congress.   I am sure there are probably prison cells available near Bernie Madhoff in the section of the prison for Ponzi Scheme criminals.    

In fact, the 50% of Americans that pay no income taxes at all are likely to get a great return on their money, since they most assuredly will receive full Social Security and Medicare benefits, while others that pay income taxes and the highest levels of Social Security and Medicare contributions will face means testing and caps on benefits.  It is already happening as the so called "rich" pay much more for Medicare at 65 years old, even though they paid in substantially more while working.  And, if the rich defined by the Socialists as Singles earning $200,000 and a married couples earning $250,000 a year get their Social Security benefits at all in the future, it will be with a cap that does not reflect their life time investment in this system.  

In other words, the 50% of us that pay all the income taxes in this country to support the 50% that pay no income taxes, will suffer further when it comes time to receive Social Security and Medicare benefits.   When Socialists speak of the rich paying their "fair share", they refuse to acknowledge that the "rich", the top 10% of income earners in the US already pay 70% of all income taxes paid.   If not for the rich, the government would be collecting very little in revenues.  

Always remember, Socialists will lie, cheat or steal to stay in office to continue feeding at the trough.   Their perverted thinking on taxes is no different that Nazi Goebbels's Big Lie Propaganda practices.   Nothing Socialists say about taxes, the economy, the deficit or the National Debt is ever true.   The numbers just never seem to add up, do they?   The good news is that Cards Talk and Number Don't Lie even if Socialists do lie.   When all is said and done, if Socialist President Obama's budget trajectory is allowed to continue, we will add another $10 Trillion to our $16 Trillion National Debt in the next ten years.    Of course, the markets will never allow that to happen.    If Obama's path toward bankruptcy continues, we will instead see the economic collapse of the United States, civil strife on our streets and a loss of our national sovereignty.   We can't let that happen.

President Obama and his Socialist pals in all levels of government, are a clear and present danger to our nation as bad as any external enemy we have ever faced.   For that reason, we must sweep these Socialists out of office in 2012 and 2104 to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.   We can do it.  We must do it.  In the meantime, when you hear Socialists on the campaign trail, just know you can't believe a word they are saying, particularly related to their perverted thinking about taxes.   None of it adds up even in the New Math.

Radical Environmentalism & Common Sense

Most Americans, this Blogger included, are environmentalists, we are just not radical environmentalists that would destroy our economy in the name of being green.    This is about common sense and a desire to maintain a high standard of living for the American people.  Besides, many purported environmental schemes actually make matters worse related to carbon emissions and or other issues.  Government subsidized Ethanol is a prime example.  Corn is used to make ethanol, which actually results in higher food prices, since corn is also a primary food stock.  And, it takes more energy to make ethanol than it saves in pollution.    There are even some honest environmentalists that now say Ethanol is a bad idea.  

The Congress of the United States has banned perfectly good, cheap light bulbs.  Instead, in the next few years Americans will be forced to buy very expensive LED, or other light bulbs that are five times as expensive; but are supposed to last longer.  Tell that to the single mom trying to support a family when she has to choose between food and light bulbs.  In addition, these new more energy efficient light bulbs contain mercury, a poisonous substance that is a health hazard.   Mercury laden light bulbs cannot just be thrown in the trash when they burn out, or break.  As a result of the danger they pose, these new light bulbs must be specially disposed of in a way to be determined.  Just maybe local cities will have to send out the HAS MAT crews to take the bulbs away and or we will have to drive to special dumps and pay extra for disposal.   Where is the common sense in Washington.  

The best one is electric cars as though they run on thin air.  Electric cars, as currently developed, require an electric charge daily.  Mr. Obama in case you were not aware, electricity comes from power generating stations primarily fueled by coal and natural gas in the United States because cleaner nuclear facilities have not been permitted and built in years.  So to say that electric cars do not have a carbon footprint is ludicrous.   And, what is going to happen to all those batteries when they wear out.  No doubt, they will be deemed an environmental hazard.  I know, I know, these batteries can be stored at Yucca Mountain, the facility in Nevada built with $13 Billion of our hard earned money that was supposed to be nation's nuclear spent fuel repository and now stands empty because it is opposed by radical environmentalists.

And, then there is the Keystone XL Pipeline, which Socialist President Obama will not allow to be built because of radical environmentalist pressure.  This pipeline would have safely and cleanly carried oil from Canada to Houston refineries; again just common sense.    So now, since there is no pipeline, Canadian Pacific Railways will be happy to use their diesel powered locomotives, with all the pollution it will cause, to transport millions of barrels of oil each year from Canada to Texas.   Again, where is the common sense in all of this.  

Radical environmentalists, including Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, are such ideologues committed to green technology that they just can't see the forest for the trees.   We need to replace the Environmental Protection Agency with an Environmental Solutions Agency committed to safe, clean and cheap energy.  We need more research and development on both carbon and nuclear energy, both readily available, contrary to President Obama's lies to make them safer, cleaner and cheaper to spur economic growth and job creation and to insure our national security.   Green technology is fine if it worked; but it cannot power our economy today, or perhaps for years to come. 

It is time for an all of the above common sense Energy Plan that recognizes reality.  That will never happen as long as President Obama and his Socialist pals, at all levels of government, remain in office because they are held hostage to radical environmentalists, that live in a dream world of wind mills and solar plants.   We have to take back our country in 2012 and 2014 to restore common sense and prevent the bankruptcy of our nation.   We have to sweep these Socialists out of office.  There is no other way.   We can do it.  We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.  In the mean time, when you go to the gas pump and pay $4 or more for a gallon of gas, you can thank President Obama.  He told us his plan included higher energy prices.  This is one promise Obama has kept.

Tragic Death Of Trayvon Martin In Florida

Travyon Martin, a 17 year old Black teenager was shot and killed in a gated community in Florida, by a security guard claiming self defense.   It will be a while before we know what really happened; but whatever happened this is a tragic and needless death.  In general, this Blogger supports the notion that anyone threatened with violence, particularly on his or her own property, has the right to use lethal force in self defense.  It remains to be seen if in fact this was the case.  Of course, what ever happened, the family of Travyon Martin has a right to be outraged, as do many who are protesting in the streets, demanding the arrest of the murderer, if he is a murderer. 

MSNBC, the Mindless Socialist News Broadcasting Corporation is portraying this murder as racially inspired, which usually translates into a "hate crime" requiring federal government involvement.   There is no proof that this was the case; but the fact is, the very notion of a "hate crime" is pretty ridiculous.  Any murder is by its very nature an irrational "hate crime".  It does not matter if the murderer is White, Black, Purple or Gay, or if the person murdered has any of these characteristics.   Ultimately, all who are murdered and all who murder have the same color blood that is often spilled.  Murder is murder and no matter who is murdered, or who the murderer is, the act itself is evil and should carry the same punishment regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation.   The notion of a "hate crime" is just more left wing federal government intrusion and political correctness gone stupid.  

Those protesting the murder of Trayvon Martin have every right to be outraged; but I would ask where is the outrage related to Black on Black crime in the inner city as murders, often drug and gang related, happen every day.   Are those "hate crimes"?  I would think so if the concept is valid.  And, where is the outrage concerning the destruction of the Black family, caused by government Welfare programs, as 7 out of 10 Black babies are born out of wedlock into poverty.  Why don't we hear Black community leaders preaching the sanctity of marriage when all the data shows that children growing up in a two parent in tact family have a far better chance of success in life.  And, where is the outrage as teacher unions and Socialists prevent School Choice in our inner cities that would allow poor Black children to escape failing public schools.   Why don't we see thousands in the Black Community in the streets protesting these issues that impact them every single day of the year. 

In particular, the education issue is serious as Blacks generally experience unemployment that is double national levels, not because of discrimination as the left would have you believe, but because of poor education and lack of job skills.  The high school drop out rate in the inner city is very high.  And, many Black children in our inner cities grow up in a disproportionate percentage of dysfunctional families where learning is not valued.   Further, many inner city public schools are managed by incompetent administrators with poor teachers protected by teacher unions. 

Until this is corrected, which will not happen as long as teacher unions and Socialists control the education agenda, we will not see the focus, discipline and hard work needed to improve inner city public schools.  That is why School Vouchers, that would allow poor Black children to escape failing public schools, are so important to this discussion.  Instead, we are stuck with politically correct nonsense and a big government solution that has failed.    Where is the outrage in the Black community?    These people should be mad as hell. 

As a father of two sons, this Blogger sees Trayvon Martin's death as tragic.  And, if the security guard committed murder, he should be punished, perhaps even with the death penalty.   That is indisputable.  I am just perplexed when we see Blacks in the street protesting what is perceived to be police malfeasance, which may be justifiable; yet there are so many other serious issues that should stir the Black community and particularly their leaders to action; but it just does not happen.   90% of Blacks tend to vote for Socialists, yet it is Socialists that keep Blacks enslaved by big government dependence.   Trillion of dollars have been spent to alleviate poverty since 1965 and though many Socialists and Black Community Leaders have benefited greatly from government largess, the poverty rate in the US has not improved dramatically.   What we have are poverty pimps living off the fat of the land at the expense of the very people they purport to help. 

Today, we have 46 million Americans on Food Stamps, a record number, up from 26 million when Obama was elected.  Of course, not all of those people are Black; but a large number fall into this category.  Socialists may see that as a good thing related to taking care of their PEEP's; but it is really a tragedy in disguise.    Always remember, whose bread you eat, whose song you sing, which may be why many of these people vote for Socialists as their benefactors.  Yes, Trayvon Martin's death is a tragedy; but it is the tip of a huge iceberg in the Black community that is never addressed, or even discussed because it is not politically correct to speak the truth.  

When Black leaders stand up and talk about the real issues facing the Black Community, progress can be made.  Until then, we will continue to see Black on Black crime, poverty and misery in our inner cities and lots of people looking to place blame on others, rather than accepting personal responsibility, when in fact only they can control their own destiny.   Socialist President Obama will never be their savior, as Blacks might have hoped from his empty promises because government is the problem and rarely the solution.   Only when the Black Community takes control and responsibility for what is happening around them will they together solve their problems.  Sadly, it will not happen any other way.

ObamaCare Monstrosity - Two Year Anniversary

It was two years ago that dizzy former Speaker of the House Socialist Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco told us that Congress had to enact ObamaCare to know what was in it.  So without reading this 2,800 page monstrosity, Socialists in the US House of Representatives and the Senate blindly enacted ObamaCare, without a single Republican vote and it was immediately signed into law by President Obama.  This happened during the two year period when the Socialists controlled both Houses of Congress and the Presidency, showing how dangerous it really is when Socialists control all levers of power.  Fortunately, the end result in 2010 was a stunning defeat for the Socialist Party as Republicans took over the House of Representatives and gained 6 seats in the Senate, nearly taking over that body, as well. 

Socialist President Obama suffered a real "shellacking" to use his word during the 2010 election.  ObamaCare was the spark that ignited the Tea Party Movement and marches on Washington, which led to Socialist electoral defeat, at both the federal and state levels.  Republicans took over both the Governorships and legislatures of numerous states in response to Obama's Socialist Schemes.  It should be no surprise that President Obama did not make any big deal about the two year anniversary of ObamaCare, since more than 60% of Americans want this over reach of the federal government into our daily lives, repealed. 

Of course, now we must finish the job in 2012 and 2014 by sweeping these Socialists, at all levels of government, including President Obama, out of office.   Socialists are a clear and present danger to our nation as bad as any external enemy we have ever faced, so they have to go. 

How appropriate that on the two year anniversary of ObamaCare, this week the Supreme Court will hear the lawsuit filed by 26 states to strike it down.  This is the equivalent of a peaceful civil war against President Obama and the federal government.  At issue is the Constitutionality of the Mandate requiring Americans to buy health insurance, or face fines.  The reality is if the federal government can force us to buy health insurance, they can force us to buy anything.  Remember the elimination of cheap light bulbs.  And, if the Mandate is struck down, since it is the basis for funding ObamaCare, whether the rest of the law can stand.  Most experts think not.  

ObamaCare was built on Socialist lies about the cost and the health care it will provide.  It was all smoke and mirrors, which has now been verified by the Congressional Budget Office.  Instead of costing about $900 Billion, over ten years, even with $500 Billion in tax increases and stealing $500 Billion from Medicare, the CBO now says they erred and in fact ObamaCare will cost more than $1.7 Trillion, over ten years, or just about double what was originally projected.  Surprise, Surprise.   Further, Medicaid cost mandated on the states will bankrupt the states beginning in 2018, which is another topic for Supreme Court adjudication because it is a violation of the 10th Amendment of the Constitution concerning States rights. 

Hopefully, this summer when the Supreme Court rules on ObamaCare, they will strike down this 2,800 page monstrosity that takes over one sixth of the US economy and will lead to an incredible federal government intrusion into our lives, loss of freedom and rationed medical care.  ObamaCare, like Obama, is EVIL plain and simple.  Just in case, we must elect Conservatives in November, 2012 committed to the repeal of ObamaCare in its entirety.   We have to take back our country in 2012 and 2014.  Let's start by regaining control of our own health care.   We can do it.  We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.   Obama and ObamaCare have to go and the sooner the better.

Republican Congressman Paul Ryan - American Super Hero

Republican Congressman Paul Ryan, Chairman of the House Budget Committee, is also one of the smartest, if not THE smartest guy in Congress.   Add to that his courage for proposing a common sense budget that recognizes that the federal government cannot go on borrowing and spending trillions of dollars we don't have, adding to our $16 Trillion National Debt, in accordance with President Obama's Socialist Schemes.   Ryan continues to stand up and say ENOUGH.  And for that Congressman Paul Ryan is an American Super Hero.    

Ryan is a Super Hero because he is willing to withstand all the Socialist personal attacks portraying him as a villain who wants to throw Granny over a cliff.   The reality is that President Obama and his Socialist pals, at all levels of government, are bankrupting our country.   Congressman Ryan is simply trying to put the brakes on before we all go over a cliff.  Ryan is proposing to cut about $5 Trillion in federal spending over the next ten years in an attempt to slow down deficit spending; not even end it.  

Congressman Ryan is proposing a simplified tax code of personal income tax rates of either 10 or 25% depending on income level along with a corporate income tax rate of 25%.   In doing so, Ryan is pushing to get rid of all loop holes and various deductions.   If these changes were put in place, our economy would boom.   We would see economic growth and job creation again in America.

Ryan is also proposing choices for Medicare for people 55 years and younger.  There would be no changes for people 55 years and older.  Those changes recognize that Medicare, as currently constructed, is facing bankruptcy.   Those that can afford to pay more for their Medicare coverage will have to pay more in order to save Medicare for future generations.   It really is that simple.  

Socialists have been playing the Social Security and Medicare card for years in an attempt to scare Senior citizens into voting for them.   Socialists always say that Republicans are out to destroy both Social Security and Medicare, when in fact it is only Republicans that are proposing ways to save both.   Always remember Socialist will lie, cheat or steal to stay in power.   We see it ever election cycle, don't we.  If Pinocchio Obama's nose grows any longer, from all his lies on the campaign trail, he is going to need a cart to carry it around.     

In any case, support Republican Congressman Paul Ryan.  He is one of few guys in Washington actually doing his job.  We need to take back our country in 2012 and 2014.  It will be elected representatives like Paul Ryan that will save our nation.  Maybe one day, Paul Ryan, American Super Hero, will end up being President of the United States.  If it happens, there is hope for our nation.

Time To FIRE Secretary of Energy Steven Chu

Egghead Secretary of Energy Steven Chu should be FIRED NOW.   Chu is a Nobel prize winning physicist and radical environmentalist.  In testimony before Congress, Chu recently gave himself a grade of A in managing the Department of Energy.  What universe does this guy live in; certainly not the real world as we face gas at more than $4 a gallon.  This is the guy who initially said he wanted to see gas go up to $9 - $10 a gallon, like in Europe, so that solar and wind power could be feasible.  Now of course, as result of political pressure, Chu has developed convenient amnesia and no longer wants to see gas prices rise so high.  What a bunch of baloney.   

Steven Chu, along with all Obamanistas, including Socialist President Obama, are radical environmental ideologues concerning energy.  They oppose all current sources of carbon and nuclear based energy, clinging to their windmills and pipe dreams of green technology that are not feasible today and may never be able to power the US economy.   These characters are professorial eggheads that have never lived in the real world.   They deal in theory not reality.  

Obama now professes to support an all of the above energy policy claiming that he supports more oil drilling, natural gas, clean coal, oil and gas shale and nuclear development.  Obama is a convenient election year LIAR, plain and simple because for the last three years his Gestapos at the Energy Department and the Environmental Protection Agency have done everything possible to stop, or slow down carbon or nuclear energy development, including stopping the Keystone XL Pipeline, preventing oil drilling in the gulf coast, closing down coal mines and Yucca Mountain that was supposed to be the nation's nuclear spent fuels repository.  In addition, Chu/Obama have closed federal lands and off shore to more energy development.  These are facts, not fiction during an election campaign. 

In addition, Steven Chu, as incompetent as President Obama, has mismanaged billions of dollars going to companies like bankrupt solar manufacturer Solyndra and many others supporting their crony capitalist contributors.   We can smell the corruption coming out of Washington all over the country.  In addition, SwindleUS monies have been used for these green projects all over the country and they have been a failure.   In this Bloggers's home town of Reno, the city was given $420,000 federal taxpayer dollars to construct 9 windmills to help power city buildings.  The savings has been a paltry $3,000 a year.  At this rate, it would take 140 years to see a return on this solar investment at a time when the city of Reno must lay off firemen.   This is crazy environmentalism gone wild.   

Secretary of Energy Steven Chu and President Obama should be given a big fat F for failing to develop a long term energy plan to make the United States energy independent.  Instead of wasting money chasing windmills, if the federal government is going to invest money in energy development it should be to make carbon and nuclear based energy, both of which are plentiful; cleaner, safer and cheaper not more expensive.   The Environmental Protection Agency should be renamed the Environmental Solutions Agency in place to develop all energy sources, within the US, not hinder them. 

Secretary Chu should be FIRED Now.   We need a can do kind of guy at the Energy Department; not a can don't egghead Energy Secretary, which is what we have today.   Of course, this will not happen as long as Obama is in office, which is just one more reason we must make Obama a one term President.   Obama and his Socialist pals at all levels of government are a clear and present danger to our nation as bad as any external enemy we have ever faced.  We have to take our country back in 2012 and 2014 to get our nation back on the right track.   We can do it.  We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation, standard of living and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.  Both Obama and Chu have to go and the sooner the better.

Canadian Oil Coming To The US By Train

Since Socialist President Obama has refused to allow the Keystone XL Pipeline to be built, connecting Canada with Houston, free market capitalism has found a way to get the oil there anyway.  Canadian Pacific Railways is transporting oil from Canada to the US gulf coast by rail.   In fact, since 2009, shipments have grown 2500% from 325,000 barrels of oil a year to 8.5 million barrels.   And, this number is expected to 45 million barrels a year in the next decade.

There are three problems with this short term solution.  First, it adds $5 to $10 a barrel to the cost of the oil.   Second, if environmentalism is important, trains run on diesel oil so this solution will contribute tons of pollution to the air each year; pretty dumb, isn't it.  And third, the chances of a train accident will increase greatly with additional frequency.  The Keystone XL Pipeline solves all of these problems as the most efficient and safest way to get Canadian oil to refineries in Houston.  You would think this would give Obama cover to defy his radical environmental supporters; but apparently not so.   Even Democrat President Bill Clinton supports building the Keystone XL Pipeline because it is just common sense. 

The good news is that this oil will be coming to the United States, rather than going to China.   The bad news is that it will be shipped inefficiently unless of course, we make Obama a one term President.   There is no doubt that any Republican President will approve building the Keystone XL Pipeline.   More important, any Republican President will implement a common sense long term Energy Plan designed to make our country energy independent.  It will be an all of the above plan, including more oil drilling, oil and gas shale, natural gas, clean coal, nuclear and green technologies.   There is no other way to get there. 

So while President Obama continues to chase wind mills and now is focused on algae as our energy sources, electing a Republican President in 2012 is the best way to finally make the United States energy independent.  It can be done within 20 years, which should be our goal, with a longer term goal in 50 years of bringing feasible renewables on line. 

Energy independence is the key to economic growth and job creation, as well as, important to our national security and standard of living.  President Obama and his Socialist pals, at all levels of government, do not get any of this, which is the reason they have to go in 2012 and 2014.   We must sweep these Socialists out of office to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.   We can do it.  We must do it.

Obama's Executive Order - Peace Time Martial Law

On Friday, March 16th, Socialist President Obama signed another far reaching Executive Order entitled National Defense Resources Preparedness, which would allow him to declare peace time martial law, presumably in the event of some sort of national emergency.   While other Presidents have issued similar; but less far reaching Executive Orders, this particular dictum has been attacked by both the left and the right fearing a President planning to take dictatorial powers, for a yet to be determined national emergency. 

Obama's Executive Order would allow him to take over all aspects of the economy; basically nationalizing all industries.  This did not even occur during World War II, or at any other time in American history.   Given that Obamanistas have ignored the Constitution concerning many actions, including ObamaCare,  all should be very concerned by this latest Executive Order issued late on a Friday night in an attempt to escape the national news cycle.    

This Blogger believes that Obamanistas fear both the Tea Party Movement and the Occupy Wall Street Movement.   While the Tea Party Movement has been completely non violent, the Occupy Wall Street Movement has resulted in riots on our streets.   And, Obama is watching the riots in Europe that are the result of national bankruptcies and the Arab Spring and Winter.    If we don't get our deficit spending under control and begin paying off our $16 Trillion National Debt, we could see the economic collapse of the United States.   If that were to happen, there would be civil strife on our streets.   These are the lessons of history, not just some prediction by an alarmist Blogger.  

Obama finds himself in a damned if you do, damned if you don't position.   Obama has increased the National Debt by an unprecedented $5 Trillion during his first term in office to buy votes and take care of his PEEP's, those on the dole, those that pay no income taxes at all, illegal aliens, big unions, radical environmentalists, trial lawyers and crony capitalists, all feeding at the trough.   If Obama actually acts responsibly to balance the federal budget and begin paying off the National Debt, his PEEP's will riot. 

And, if Obama keeps borrowing 40 cents for every dollar spent by the federal government, adding Trillions of dollars more to the National Debt, it will lead to bankruptcy and cause the economic collapse of the United States, which will absolutely result in civil strife in our nation.   Either way, Obama ends up with riots in our streets.  Given the choice and since Obama's plan is to transform our country into a European style Socialist nation, this President will choose bankruptcy as the radical means to make it happen.   

However, since history is always the best teacher, it is very likely that the American military would step in to prevent chaos in our country, if martial law were ever declared.   If that ever happens, the outcome would be very unpredictable.   In any case, this latest Executive Order is an indication that Obamanistas, acting out of fear, are preparing for a Dooms Day scenario.   Remember, the Soviet Union collapsed, not because it had a weak military; but because their economic system collapsed.   Don't think it can't happen in America.   

P.S. Vice President Joe Biden was recently booed by blue collar types at a St. Patrick's Day parade in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which normally would be Socialist territory.  The natives are restless, which will make Obama even more desperate.   Beware the latest Executive Order.

Time To Get Out of Afghanistan NOW

President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan recently said the both the United States and the Taliban equally are demons.    Some say this guy has not been taking his MEDS; but whatever caused Karzai to make this statement, it is an insult to the 1,800 or more families that have lost loved ones, our brave soldiers, fighting to keep Karzai in power and the thousands of American soldiers wounded, or maimed, in the last ten years trying to bring peace and stability to Afghanistan.  It is time for us to get out of Afghanistan NOW not a year or two from NOW. 

Socialist President Obama made the right decision to go after and kill Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan.   As such, we can declare Victory and get the hell out of Afghanistan.   Unfortunately, we find ourselves in the current mess because Obama publicly announced a withdrawal date.   Would Roosevelt have ever announced a withdrawal date from Europe while we were fighting the NAZI's.  Would Truman have told the Japanese that we had no more atomic bombs, after dropping the only two we had on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  Obviously, announcing your withdrawal strategy to the enemy is pretty stupid; but that is exactly what Obama has done. 

Karzai knows that we will not be there to protect him by a date certain and as such, he is now looking for ways to work with the Taliban.   What a surprise.   The reality is that Afghanistan has been a hell hole for centuries.  We are not going to change that any time soon.   Shortly after we depart, the Taliban will be back in power.   Karzai will flee to Switzerland to join his bank account full of American taxpayer money.   Sadly, women once again will face incredible repression in Afghanistan.  Unfortunately, we just can't change these cultural behaviors.  Once we leave, Afghanistan will go back into Mid Evil times and their corrupt society.  It is all they know.  It is what it is and we can't change it. 

What we can do is make it very clear to who ever is in power in Afghanistan that if they allow their country ever again to be used for Terrorist bases,  they will face aerial bombing and cruise missiles to not only destroy those bases; but also the heroin fields that fuel their economy and corrupt bank accounts.    We don't need American boots on the ground to display American power.   We can implement shock and awe anywhere we choose to make it happen. 

Most important, we should not be in the business of nation building anywhere else; but the United States of America.   There has been and there will always be cruelty in the world.   We can't solve all the world's problems no matter how horrible these people are to each other.   We can apply pressure; but that should be the extent of our involvement in many of these countries that do not involve the vital interest of the United States. 

Socialist President Obama, when running for the Presidency, called Afghanistan the right war and Iraq the wrong war.   So that makes Afghanistan Obama's war.  Obama has already thrown in the towel and as such not one more American soldier's blood should be shed in Afghanistan.   It is time to get out of Afghanistan NOW.   Obama has already surrendered so why waste any more time, resources, or American blood on this backward country.

Here We Go Again - Federal Budget Time

Very shortly, Republican Congressman Paul Ryan, the Chairman of the House Budget Committee will publish and the House of Representatives will enact a budget for 2013 designed to cut spending and begin to get some control over deficit spending and our National Debt.   This will be a party line vote as the Republican majority in the House will vote for the budget and the Socialist minority, led by Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, will vote against the budget.  Ho Hum.   This story is getting really old. 

The Socialists will claim that life as we know it will end if the cuts endorsed by Republicans become law.  And, of course when the Ryan Budget goes over to the Senate, it will be labeled dead on arrival by Socialist Senator Dirty Harry Reid of Nevada.  Again, nothing new since the Socialist controlled Senate has not approved a budget in about three years.   Dirty Harry won't even let a budget come to the floor.   The budget proposed by Socialist President Obama will not become law either since even Socialists in the Congress won't vote for it; let alone Republicans.

And so, the dance continues.   Instead of a budget, eventually the Congress will enact a series of continuing resolutions that allow for the trillion dollar deficits that have occurred every year since Obama took office.   This President will add about $5 Trillion to the National Debt in his first term in office, more than any other President in American history.   The highest year of deficit spending during the Bush 8 years was around $400 Billion by comparison. 

We are fast approaching a $16 Trillion National Debt, which may occur before year end.   When that happens, once again the Congress will be asked the raise the National Debt Ceiling, with no end in sight.  Clearly, Obama and the Socialists in Congress have no plan for balancing the budget and paying off the National Debt as we spiral out of control toward bankruptcy.   Bernie Madhoff went to jail for pulling off a $2 Billion Ponzi Scheme.   President Obama and his Socialist pals in Congress are recklessly bankrupting our country.   These characters make Madhoff look like a dime store crook. 

President Obama and his Socialist pals in Congress and at all levels of government are a clear and present danger to our nation as bad as any external enemy we have ever faced in American history.   We have to take back our country to prevent the bankruptcy of the United States, which would result in the loss of our national sovereignty.   It would appear that this is Obama's intent.   We can't let that happen.   We won't let that happen.

We must sweep these Socialists at all levels of government, including President Obama, out of office in 2012 and 2014 to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.   We can do it.  We must do it.  In the meantime, here we go again related to the 2013 budget.    There will be name calling.   The Socialists on MSNBC will say we want to throw granny off a bridge, or maybe under a train.   We will hear it all. 

Socialists, like Obama, will say all we have to do is raise taxes on the "rich" to solve all our problems.  What a bunch of baloney.  Obama is borrowing 40 cents for every dollar the federal government spends.   If Obama confiscated all the wealth in the United States, it would be impossible to pay off the National Debt, or fund his crazy Socialist Schemes.  

Remember, Socialists will lie, cheat or steal to stay in power.  We will see all of these things happen during budgets deliberations.  The reality is that cards talk and numbers don't lie; but Socialist do lie all the time.  Obama is a LIAR plain and simple.  This election year will just be more of the same.

Paying Off The National Debt

Since it is very unlikely that Socialists or Republicans will find a way to  actually pay off the $16 Trillion National Debt, that just continues to grow, every minute of every day, the only way to pay off the Debt is by the federal government generating  royalties from drilling for oil, oil or gas shale, natural gas, or mining on federal lands, or in waters off our shores.   Socialist President Obama will not allow this to happen; but it must happen not only to make our country Energy Independent; but to pay off the National Debt and prevent the bankruptcy of the United States.   It is just common sense; provided this new found money actually goes to cover the Debt. 

It is estimated that the federal government could generate about $18 Trillion in royalties from drilling and mining on federal lands over time.    This does not include the additional tax revenues that would come from a vibrant energy industry, which is the key to job creation, economic growth in our country and a higher standard of living for our people.   Unfortunately, President Obama is an impediment to making any of this happen.  

The key issue in the elections of 2012 and 2014 is Energy Independence.     Socialists support pie in the sky green technology that cannot power our country for years to come.   President Obama continues to chase wind mills in the hope that solar and wind can replace carbon, or nuclear based energy.  That is just not going to happen any time soon. 

Putting a 50 Year, all of the above, Energy Plan in place is the answer that will create Energy Independence and protect our National Security.   The fact that we are dependent on an unstable Middle East for oil is ridiculous when Canada and the United States together have the capacity to supply all our energy needs for at least two hundred years and maybe longer.  

The reality is that President Obama and his Socialist pals in government are  ideologues owned lock, stock and barrel by radical environmentalists to the detriment of our country and our people.   These Socialists are a clear and present danger to our nation as bad as any external enemy we have ever faced in American history.  For that reason, we must sweep Socialists, at all levels of government, including President Obama, out of office in 2012 and 2014.  The survival of our nation depends on it. 

We can do it.   We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.   We have to pay off our National Debt to restore our Triple AAA credit rating.   Royalties from energy production is the way to do it.  We can make it happen; but only if we elect Conservatives that get it.  We have to make Obama a one term President to prevent the bankruptcy of the United States.   We have work to do.

Obamanistas Want More SwindleUS Money

Former Chairwoman of Obama's Council of Economic Advisers, egghead professor Christina Romer and Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner are both arguing for more deficit spending and fiscal stimulus.    This is nothing new.  All Obamanistas want to continue borrowing trillions of dollars to take care of their PEEP's, those on the dole, those that pay no income taxes at all, illegal aliens, big unions, trial lawyers, radical environmentalists and crony capitalists, all feeding at the trough at our expense. 

The fact that Obama's Trillion dollar deficit spending SwindleUS Plans I, II, III and IV have done little to bring down real unemployment, currently at 15% or higher, stop the rate of foreclosures, stem the tide in housing depreciation, or reduce the number of Americans on Food Stamps, now a record 46 million people, does not seem to matter to these Keynesian Economists.   For Socialists, it is all about buying votes to win elections.  

Tim Geithner, the Secretary of the Treasury has said now is not the time for austerity.  When is it the time for austerity?  Deficit spending, adding to our National Debt, has continued during good and bad times for years.  Our National Debt is now approaching $16 Trillion.   We have lost our Triple AAA Credit Rating, under Obama's management, for the first time in American history.    We have government intrusion into every aspect of daily life.   And, we recently learned that ObamaCare will cost nearly double what was projected, about $2 Trillion over ten years, which is no surprise since Socialists in Congress manipulated the numbers and simply lied to enact Socialized medicine.

The only way to achieve economic growth and job creation again in the private sector is to cut taxes and regulations and shrink the size of the federal government in an orderly way.   More government borrowing and SwindleUS money will achieve little more than a sugar high.   Government does not create permanent jobs.  Only the private sector creates permanent jobs that are based on free market capitalism and supply and demand, not artificial government stimulus that once gone actually results in higher unemployment.  

A PHD is not required to understand this reality.  It is taught in Economics 101; but wait a minute Socialist President Obama, who has never worked in the real world, apparently did not take and pass that course.   What a shame.  If Obama had just read Milton Friedman's book, Capitalism and Freedom, just 202 pages long, the President would know all he needs to know to actually restore economic growth and job creation. 

Unfortunately, this President studied Das Capital by Karl Marx, the  Communist Manifesto and other Socialist and Communist authors.   This must be true because Obama is an advocate of "redistribution of income" in the name of "social justice".   These are the words of Communists and Socialists not people who support free market capitalism.  It is true that Obama inherited a deep Recession.   However, Obama's economic policy and professorial theories have made it worse, causing the Recession to last longer and be deeper than it otherwise would have been with the right free market policies in place.  

If Obama would have just implemented an all of the above Energy Plan instead of subsidies for goofy green technology that is not feasible today, millions of Americans would be working now instead of collecting Food Stamps.  Millions more might not have lost their homes to foreclosure.  Sadly, Obama, though smart and attractive, has failed.  But then Jimmy Carter was believed to have the highest IQ of any President; yet he too was a miserable failure.   Success is not just about intelligence; but rather just plain only common sense.   

We must make Obama a one term President to prevent the bankruptcy of our nation.  For the first time in our history, the federal government has experienced trillion dollar plus deficits every year since Obama took office with no end in sight.  It is as though this President is intentionally attempting to cause the economic collapse of the United States.   We can't allow that to happen.  

We have to get out our check books and work very hard to sweep Socialists at all levels of government, including President Obama and all his pals in Congress, out of office in 2012 and 2014.  These characters are a clear and present danger to our nation as bad as any external enemy we have ever faced.   We have to send these Socialist packing.   We can do it.   We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.  In the meantime, tell your Congressman and Senators, no more SwindleUS Plans.   It is time to cut the size of government to no more than 17% of Gross Domestic Product.   We are currently at 25% under Obama.  To do otherwise is a road to the bankruptcy of our nation.

UN Investigating US Voter ID

In perhaps the biggest laugh of the century, the United Nations Human Rights Council is investigating allegations that US States, that require photo identification to vote in our elections, are discriminating against our people to deny them voting rights.  This is particularly ludicrous since Communist China, Cuba and several Arab countries, all run by dictators, sit on the UN Human Rights Council.   

Socialist President Obama, as our elected leader, should tell the UN to mind its own damn business.  Of course, that will not happen because the Obama Justice Department, led by political crony Attorney General Eric Holder, has sued South Carolina and Texas to cease and desist from requiring the same Voter ID used by 23 states and approved by the Supreme Court in 2008 with liberal Justice support. 

This Blogger's 91 year old mother has a Department of Motor Vehicle Photo ID (not a Driver's License) so she can cash checks and presumably take an airplane flight and for all other purposes requiring ID.   My mom, who never did drive a car or have a Driver's License, in her whole life,  has had this ID since it became available in California perhaps 30 or more years ago.  What's the big deal. 

Various US states, now totaling 32, either have a Photo ID requirement to vote, or are putting one in place to avoid FRAUD at their polls.   And, while everyone knows that the dead vote in Chicago, Obama's home town, it is critical that we make sure that those voting, are who they say they are, to ensure the validity of our electoral process.  Of course, Socialist President Obama, when he was a Community Organizer, served as ACORN's attorney.   You know ACORN, the President's PEEP's and the group that has been convicted of voter fraud.  

It always important to remember that Socialists will lie, cheat or steal to stay in power to continue feeding at the trough and that includes playing games with voting.  Whenever this Blogger goes to vote in Nevada and I show my Driver's Licence as photo ID, I remind the people working the polls to make sure to look at the picture to prevent shenanigans that would otherwise occur.   We have to deal with Socialist Senator Dirty Harry Reid and his supporters in Nevada and they play dirty.   If we did not have photo ID as a requirement, Reid, who is a crook, would resurrect the dead to stay in office, much like happens in Chicago. 

As Ronald Reagan always said, "Trust but Verify".   This is another one of those cases where we should trust those going to the polls to vote; but just in case someone is trying to play games, require Photo ID.   And, by the way, various states are making the Motor Vehicle Photo ID FREE of charge for those than cannot afford to pay so this is not about denying the poor the right to vote.   Now if the poor are too lazy to get Photo ID, too bad for them.   This is another case of personal responsibility.

Aside from all this silliness,  the United Nations involvement in our voting procedures is another reason to discontinue funding of the United Nations.   The US provides the UN most of its operating budget.  So in essence we borrow money to pay for the UN, known to be a corrupt bureaucracy full of crooks.   And, the UN is full of countries that hate the United States.   What are we doing?  

When it comes time to cut federal government expenses to balance our budget, the billions we give the UN should be at the top of the list.   This is another case where common sense should prevail.   The United Nations is of no value to our country.    If the Chinese want to fund the United Nations that is up to them.  They can move the organization to Beijing.  It is time for the United States to say sayonara, adios and bye bye.   

Of course, this will not happen as long as Socialist President Obama is in office because he is a one world guy who believes in collective decision making, even when it is not in the best interest of the United States.   Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta even said so before Congress, when he said the US would have to get permission from the International community before we can use military power.  

Mr. Panetta, please read the US Constitution.   The President must come to Congress for permission to use our military, not any foreign body.  This is just one more reason we must make Obama a one term President in 2012.  We have to take back our country by sweeping these Socialists, at all levels of government, including President Obama, out of office in 2012 and 2014.   We can do it.   We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Republicans - A Two Man Race

With Senator Rick Santorum winning both Alabama and Mississippi, it is clearly turning into a two man race between him and Mitt Romney for the Republican Presidential nomination.   The notion that Romney's nomination is inevitable is beginning to shatter.  In addition, one other thing is for sure.   Newt Gingrich should absolutely pull out of the race NOW.  

Gingrich has won just two primaries out of about 20 primaries and caucuses.  Continuing in the race is starting to look like nothing more than a vendetta against Romney for Romney's negative ads that took Gingrich out early on.  As they say, politics is not bean bags; but it is starting to get dangerous for the Republican Party.     

Newt Gingrich has to go because now he is hurting the Republican Party and our chance of beating Socialist President Obama.   We need this race settled quickly, not at the convention in Tampa in August to have any chance of winning in November.   Mitt Romney also needs to learn a lesson from his losses and that is that negative advertisements against other Republicans is backfiring against him. 

It is time for Romney to cut it out and fight it out with Rick Santorum on the merits.  It is time for Reagan's 11th Commandant, "thou shall not speak badly of another Republican".   Believe me, the Socialists will sling plenty of mud and lies about our Republican candidate without our own candidates doing it too. 

If Mitt Romney does win the nomination, it is certainly looking like Rick Santorum will have earned the VP spot.   All these negative ads by Romney will make it that much more difficult to bury the hatchet when the time comes to unify the party.   A Romney/Santorum ticket could be just fine.   We need Social and Economic Conservatives along with Independents and Blue Collar Reagan Democrats to beat Obama.  A Romney/Santorum ticket could get us there. 

We have to take back our country in 2012 and 2014 to prevent the bankruptcy of the United States.  It is critical that our candidates aim all their criticism at Obama and his Socialist pals in government NOW in order for us to win in November.  We can do it.   We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.  

It looks like we will have a Romney/Santorum ticket.   Though I would have preferred a more Conservative candidate as our Presidential nominee, this Blogger can live with a Romney/Santorum ticket.  We need to move on and begin to focus on sweeping Socialists at all levels of government out of office.

California On A Death March - Luney Land

California is on a death march.   The state is run by Socialists controlled by public employee unions.   California's Governor Moonbeam Jerry Brown is a back to the future experience since Brown was a failed Governor of California 30 years ago.   It is a pretty sad day when Republicans have little chance of winning office in California and the best the Socialists can put up is a 70 year old retread.   So like always, California is borrowing and spending Billions of dollars it does not have because public employee unions continue feeding at the trough in the process of bankrupting California.  

In fact, if anyone wants to see what would happen to the United States if Socialists controlled both Houses of Congress and the Presidency, which was the case that produced ObamaCare; just look to California for the example.  Unemployment in California is around 11%, not the highest in the country; but darn near.   Housing prices have fallen by about 40% and the foreclosure rate is very high.   Taxes are among the highest in the country, which has caused many companies to leave California over the years.  

In fact, 30 years ago about 250 companies with 5,000 employees or more were headquartered in California.  Today, that number is 129 and of those most have shipped major operations overseas, or to other states.  Apple may be headquartered in California; but its killer products are made in other countries.  Yet the Socialists in California continue on their merry way.  Governor Moonbeam Jerry Brown is proposing even higher taxes on people earning more than $250,000 a year along with a major sales tax increase. 

$250,000 may be a lot of money in Alabama; but it is not such a big deal for two married professionals in California to earn this amount.  In fact, a teacher married to a fireman could very well be in this wage category.  But that is not all.   The public employee unions are planning other initiatives, as well, that could be on the ballot next November to raise all sorts of other taxes.   And, then there are all the crazy regulations in California that make manufacturing, in particular, impossible in the state.  These Socialist characters just don't get it.   Companies and people vote with their feet to escape California taxes and regulations.   It has been happening for years.  Even Hollywood movies are often not made in California any longer. 

It is no coincidence that Texas has grown in direct proportion to California's company and job losses.  Texas is a business friendly state with relatively low taxes, reasonable regulations, a good quality of life and a lower cost of living.   These are the ingredients necessary for economic growth and job creation. 

And, then there is all the crazy social policy in California.   Of course, abortion on demand is a right along with medical marijuana.  But, the most recent craziness is Senate Bill 182, the Judicial Applicant and Appointment Demographics Act.   This is a voluntary on-line survey sent to all judges in California.   In addition to asking questions about gender, race and ethnicity, this questionnaire asks if a judge identifies as a man, woman, gay or transgender.   Names are required, though the information is supposed to be confidential.   What a laugh. 

Nothing in California is confidential because the environment is so highly politicized.   Remember, California includes the lame stream, left wing media and Hollywood, where anything goes.   40% of judges refused to respond to the survey, which means that 60% actually answered these questions about sexual orientation.   This data will lead to appointment quotas; just wait and see based on sexual orientation.   Why else for big government to collect the information. 

What is happening in California demonstrates why we must work to sweep Socialists, out of office, at all levels of government.   We can see the end result of their handiwork in California.   Socialists are a clear and present danger to our nation as bad as any external enemy we have ever faced in American history.   They are out to transform our nation in their image.  Socialists believe that big government should make all our decisions.  They support big government as a replacement for the family.  Obama and his pals believe in redistribution of our income in the name of "social justice" from those of us who work, to their PEEP's, many of whom don't work. 

To all of this, we must stand up and say HELL NO as we "cling to our guns and religion".   We must sweep these Socialists out of office in 2012 and 2014 to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.   California may be lost, though there is always hope; but we can't allow what is happening in California to happen to our nation.  

We have to take back our country by making Socialist President Obama, a one term President and by sweeping other Socialists, at all levels of governemnt, out of office.   We can do it.   We must do it to prevent the bankruptcy of the United States.   So get ready.  Get out your check books.  Put on your hip boots and let's work together to drain the swamp that is Washington DC and in every state in the nation.

Sarah Palin - HBO Hatchet Job

In the most blatant hatchet job perhaps ever in a TV movie, HBO portrays Governor Sarah Palin as a stupid, deranged, lunatic having a nervous breakdown in the movie Game Change about the 2008 Presidential Campaign.   This movie was produced by actor Tom Hanks, who donates big money to Socialists, including President Obama; so the bias during an election year is no surprise.  The left wing, lame stream media did the same thing in the movie Iron Lady about Margaret Thatcher, who was depicted late in life with Alzheimer's rather than during her glory days on the world stage.   What do these two women have in common?

Both Palin and Thatcher were Conservative, tough women that Socialists and the left wing, lame stream media just love to HATE because of their popularity.  The only problem with these depictions is the actual history.   Sarah Palin was not at all incoherent during her run for Vice President.   Palin is also regularly seen on TV and has a good command of facts, figures and government policy.   If Sarah Palin is so stupid or deranged, how is that possible. 

Margaret Thatcher was perhaps one of the greatest, toughest Prime Ministers in British history.   Thatcher was a presence on the world stage for more than 10 years working with President Reagan to end Communism and bring down the Soviet Union.  Thatcher restored prosperity in Britain that had suffered from Socialist Schemes for years.   These are facts not fiction. 

The real message from the movie Game Change was that John McCain's campaign staff was completely incompetent.   And, John McCain, the RINO, was a lousy candidate; who though a war hero, ironically was not tough enough to win a Presidential election.   In fact, McCain would have done even worse had Sarah Palin, or someone like her not been his running mate because McCain brought no energy to the campaign.  John McCain was just an old man running for President against a Socialist who would do or say anything to win.   John McCain just never understood what he faced in Barack Obama, the Socialist Community Organizer and as such McCain deserved to lose. 

It should be no surprise that the left wing, lame stream media, which includes HBO continues to demonize Sarah Palin because she is a Conservative pro-life Christian woman with moral values.   That combination just does not fit the Hollywood mold.   The fact that Palin is very popular with a segment of the American people is a threat to Socialists and their supporters.  

It is no coincidence that this movie came out during the Republican primaries, since it was planned at least two years ago when there was a good chance that Sarah Palin might run for the Presidency.  These Socialist will do anything they can to destroy Palin, or more importantly to silence her.   The fact that Sarah will not leave the national stage is the reason the movie Game Change was produced.  

This left wing depiction of Sarah Palin is really about the culture war going on in our country.   Those of us that "cling to our guns and religion" and who are avidly pro-life and family are seen by Socialists and their left wing supporters as a threat to their left wing big government agenda.  This is the cultural divide that exist in the United States.  If our nation is to survive, we must win this cultural war by changing hearts and minds.   Thankfully, though the left wing media says otherwise, the majority of Americans are now pro-life and Conservative. 

We still have lots of work to do in order to sweep Socialists, at all levels of government, including President Obama, out of office in 2012 and 2014 to take back our country.  We can do it.   We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.  

In the meantime, if you subscribe to HBO, the cable channel that also broadcasts the Bill Maher show, it is time to cancel.   Vote with your money and when you cancel your subscription tell your cable company why you are getting rid of HBO.   We are interested in entertainment, not left wing propaganda.   The movie Game Change about Sarah Palin is just more left wing Socialist baloney.   This movie is nothing more than hate speech.  It is what it is. 

P.S.  To see the real story of Sarah Palin watch the documentary, The Undefeated.   You will see that Palin is a tough determined woman who is not going away any time soon.

Obama's 2% Big Lie - Nose Is Growing

Like Pinocchio, Socialist President Obama's nose is going to grow if he keeps up his lies and propaganda on the campaign trail.   Obama claims that the US uses 25% of the world's oil supply and that we only have 2% of the world's known oil reserves.   There Obama goes again telling his Socialist lies.   The fact is that the United States is sitting on oil and oil shale that could power our country for another 250 years, if Obama would allow for off shore drilling and drilling on federal lands.   Oil experts tell us that we could easily go from producing 6 million barrels of oil to 10 million barrels of oil with our own resources.  We are not talking about drilling in national parks; but rather lands in the middle of no where, far out to sea and at Anwar in Alaska. 

Obama wants to see gas at $8 - $10 a gallon as the only way to make his pipe dream of wind and solar power economically feasible.   This President and all Socialists are so blind to reality that they just can't see that "green technology" can in no way power the United States for many years to come, if ever.  And, any and all energy initiatives are always positioned by Socialists as too many years away to have any impact on current gas prices.   Socialists use this excuse for not approving any energy initiatives.   The Keystone Pipeline is just the latest project prevented from happening by Socialists using this crazy logic.

This happens because Obama and his Socialists pals in government are owned lock, stock and barrel by environmental radicals and big unions.  Every action the President takes is governed by his patrons calling the shots even if it means destroying our economy and providing our people a lower standard of living.   Ironically, this time around some of the big unions are upset with Obama for failing to support the Keystone Pipeline that would have created 20,000 or more good paying union jobs.  

The reality is that the United States could be Energy Independent, within 20 years with focus.   We need a 50 year Energy Plan to develop all sources of energy, including renewables, but that plan must recognize reality, not pie in the sky, or a President chasing wind mills.   Energy Independence requires an all of the above strategy, including more oil drilling, oil and natural gas shale, natural gas, clean coal and nuclear energy along with more research on renewables.    This does not mean ignoring the Environment; but rather more research and development to make all current energy sources, cleaner, safer, more available and cheaper.   Obama's goal is to make all current energy sources more expensive to justify green technologies and pay-off's to his crony capitalist supporters.

Socialist energy plans are really ridiculous.   Socialists support electric trains and cars like the $40,000 Chevy Volt that is a real clunker.   It is as though electricity comes out of thin air.   Most electricity today is made by generators powered by coal, natural gas, or nuclear energy.   If every train and car in America was an electric train or car, it would not reduce our carbon foot print one bit because even more electricity would have to be produced to power these vehicles. 

A better solution would be using natural gas to power our cars and trucks, particularly if every home in America could essentially become a natural gas station.  The United States has several hundred year's supply of natural gas.   And, it is relatively cheap and cleaner that gasoline.   Can we at least get serious about potential energy sources that work, rather than pie in the sky that does not work.  Further, nuclear energy produces no carbon emissions and must be in the equation in order for our country to become Energy Independent. 

We have to make President Obama a one term President.   This man is a liar and a clear and present danger to our nation and our people as bad as any external enemy we have ever faced.   We must sweep Obama and his Socialist pals, at all levels of government, out of office in 2012 and 2014.   We can do it.   We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren. 

In the mean time, when you hear Obama on the campaign trail just know that most of what he says is propaganda designed to fool enough of the people for him to win reelection.   Always remember that Socialist will lie, cheat, or steal to stay in office.   Obama's 2% Big Lie about oil is just another example.
