Senator Dirty Harry Reid - There He Goes Again

Socialists will lie, cheat, steal, borrow, extort, target their political enemies and history teaches us even murder to stay in power feeding at the trough.  Socialist President Pinocchio Obama and his pals in Congress, like Senator Dirty Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader and Minority Leader Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi have all decided to double down and lie even more than usual going into the 2014 election cycle.  Dirty Harry, who often has the side of his brain turned off that filters his comments, recently went on the Senate Floor to declare that all those Americans negatively impacted by ObamaCare and there are millions of us are LIARS.   Can you even imagine this comment. 

More than 6 million Americans have lost their health insurance plans because of ObamaCare, in addition to losing their doctors, despite of Obama's promise that if you like your plan and doctors, you can keep them.   Millions more have seen big increases in their taxes, medical insurance premiums and deductibles, including this Blogger's employees.  The Brookings Institute, a liberal Think Tank, now estimates that 80% of Americans will pay more as a result of ObamaCare; so much for saving every family $2,500 a year, as promised by the President. 

It is also now estimated that Senior Citizens in the Medicare Advantage HMO Program will see a $900 increase in their cost in 2015 as a result of cuts to Medicare that were part of ObamaCare.  These are usually low income Seniors that have opted for the Medicare Advantage Program because they can't afford straight Medicare, or other Medigap policies.  Further, Americans are losing their jobs because of ObamaCare, or being put on part time.   This is reality not LIES. 

So, when Dirty Harry went on the Senate Floor to call millions of Americans LIARS related to ObamaCare horror stories,  it is clear now that this is coming right out of Socialist Obama's propaganda play book.   Josef Goebbels, the NAZI propagandist, practiced the Big Lie theory and that is tell a lie often enough and the people will believe it.  Not this time bozos.  These Socialist politicians are running scared related to the upcoming 2014 election that favors Republicans.   Socialists play dirty.  Expect more to come as they get  even more desperate.

Arizona - Religious Versus Personal Freedom

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer correctly vetoed a bill that would have allowed a business owner the right to deny the sale of goods and services to a customer based on religious grounds.   Fundamentalist Christians, Jews and Muslims believe that the gay life style is an abomination based on Bible, Torah, or Koran teachings.  This Arizona bill actually emanated from two legal cases; one involving a baker and one a videographer that refused to do business with Gay customers on religious grounds.  Discrimination lawsuits were the end result.   The Arizona legislature attempted to protect the business owner, who on the basis of religious convictions, chose not to do business with Gays, or anybody else. 

As a business owner, while I might turn away a known murderer, rapist, pedophile, dead beat, or anyone asking us to do something illegal, or dishonest, turning away business from anyone else is inconceivable to me and just plain dumb.  Though this Blogger businessman is a Common Sense Pro-Life Christian Conservative, I am not God.  It is God's job to judge all of us for our sins while living and on judgement day.   If God believes being Gay is an abomination, then God will have to implement whatever punishment is appropriate.   God may already be doling out punishment for those who hook up to have unprotected sex in the form of Aids, Syphilis, Herpes and Hepatitis C, all debilitating diseases, that impact men and women of all persuasions that make bad decisions.  Maybe this is part of God's Plan.  Who knows?

However, as a company that is not part of a church, or other religious organization, other than the effect on our company health care medical premiums, what happens in someone's bedroom is none of my business.   Governor Jan Brewer got it right when she vetoed this legislation.   When any business owner hangs up a sign that says "Open for Business"; it is to all who can pay the bill, regardless of race, religion, ethnic origin, or sexual orientation.   This in no way violates anyone's right to practice their religion, however they choose to do so. 

Obamanistas & The Rule Of Law

The foundation of any democracy is the rule of law.   Our Founding Fathers set up the three co-equal branches of the federal government to prevent an abuse of power through checks and balances that were intentional.  Over the years, Presidents have assumed more and more power until today when Socialist President Pinocchio Obama has become a quasi dictator using Executive Orders in complete disregard of the law.   We are on very dangerous ground.  Recently, Obama's Liar Attorney General Eric Holder advised State Attorney Generals to ignore the laws of their states if they simply thought the laws were unconstitutional.  Obamanistas may think that this the basis for our democracy; but that is not how it is all supposed to work. 

Problem is that Obamanistas do not recognize the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, as the law of the land.  Obama and his Attorney General have refused to execute laws on the books that they disagree with even though there has been no change from Congress, or the Courts.   This has happened related to Federal Appointments without required Congressional Approval,  Immigration laws that are being ignored, EPA Regulations that are not part of the Clean Air Act, IRS targeting of Conservatives and religious groups and at least 30 changes and waivers to ObamaCare, without an act of Congress.  If Obama was a Republican President doing all of these things, you can bet that the lame stream, left wing media and the Socialists in government would be screaming for Obama's Impeachment.

The fact that Obama is our first Black President does not give him the right to ignore the Constitution and the laws of the land.   The dictatorial precedents that are being set will be used by another President in the future as justification for additional abuse of power.   Americans of all political parties, wake up.   Socialist President Obama is a clear and present danger to our freedom and our nation.   WE THE PEOPLE must stand up and say NO MORE at the polls in 2014 and 2016.   We must throw these Socialist bums out of office that would condone this abuse of power.

Obama Gutting US Military

At a time when the United States faces renewed threats from China, Russia, Iran and North Korea, not to mention a resurgent Al Queda and instability throughout the world, Socialist President Pinocchio Obama is gutting the US Military.  In fact, Obama is cutting the military to its lowest level since prior to World War II, including cutting military pay and benefits, which is dangerous. This is happening as Obama is proposing more than $50 Billion in additional spending on his PEEP's in his 2015 budget.   This should be no surprise because Obama does not believe in American Exceptionalism and deep down all Socialists hate the military. 

Obama sees the US as just one nation among many, not the super power we need to be to maintain peace in the world.  While Ronald Reagan implemented "peace through strength" that destroyed Communism and ended the Cold War, Socialist Obama is hollowing out the military, much the same way Jimmy Carter did during his Presidency to make it impossible for the US to act in the face of danger.  History teaches us that power vacuums are always filled by dictators; just wait and see.   Unfortunately for the American people, Obama never learned the lesson of both History and Economics. 

Rather than take cell phones away from his PEEP's, that cost our country $2 Billion a year and curtail all the waste, fraud, abuse and redundancy that exists at all levels of government, Obama is cutting the military, which is a perilous path for our nation.    Most important, without Entitlement Reform, which Socialists will not allow, these cuts to our military will do little to deal with deficit spending, or paying off our National Debt.  But let's face it, Obama, the Community Organizer and Liar In Chief does not understand his role as Commander In Chief.   This is the reason Obama is not respected by other world leaders.  This naive and inexperienced President is a clear and present danger to our nation. 

It is becoming clearer by the day that Obama is out to cause the economic collapse of the United States because he simply will not stop all the deficit spending that is bankrupting our country.   At the same time, Obama intends to turn the United States into a weak, second class nation.  Thank God, there are only a few more years of Obama.  Let us hope that the people of the United States have the common sense to elect Conservatives that support limited government, lower taxes and less regulation and a strong national defense to take over the Congress in 2014 and the Presidency in 2016.   If this does not happen, our country is destined to experience decline and serious threats from abroad that will cost American lives.   Anyone who has learned the lessons of history has seen this story before.

Ukraine and Russian History

Many Americans, including President Obama and his Socialist pals in government know nothing of world, or even US history.   These are often the Low Learners that vote for Socialists.   In any case, specific to what is happening in the Ukraine, we should tread lightly.  For more than 500 years, Russian rulers, be they Czar's, Communist Commissars in the old Soviet Union, or current quasi dictator Vladamir Putin have moved to establish a Greater Russia that has always included the Ukraine.  The Ukraine is not only the bread basket of Russia, it is of strategic interest to Russia because of their major naval base on the Black Sea in the Crimea.  All Russian Rulers for the last 500 years have recognized that Russia needs a warm water port to be a great nation, since their main port in the Baltic is frozen for half the year, hence the reason control of the Black Sea is so important to them.     

As a result, naive and inexperienced, Socialist President Pinocchio Obama should not be drawing any more silly lines in the sand that are not sustainable anyway.  The fact is that Russia and Putin will enforce their Vital Interests in the Ukraine one way or another, the same way the US would do so in our backyard.  Remember the Monroe Doctrine, which made clear that the time for foreign powers in the New World was over by the early 1800's.  President Monroe established hegemony over the entire New World with the stroke of a pen early in American history.  Politicians in the Ukraine better understand that they must straddle two fences; maintaining friendly ties to Russia, while at the same time developing closer ties to Western Europe.   This is possible and in the best interest of the Ukrainian people. 

The bigger issue is the oil and gas that Russia sells to both the Ukraine and Western Europe.   British Prime Minister Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher was totally opposed to Russian pipelines into Western Europe that would make those countries dependent on Russia.   Thatcher predicted that rather than integrate Russia into Europe, the Socialist goal, Russian Rulers would use their energy power as an economic weapon, which Putin has already done.   Putin can turn off the faucet any time he wants and he has done so to exert economic pressure.  Ukraine, which is bankrupt, is particularly susceptible to this economic black mail.  Most important, all should understand that what we see happening in Russia and its former satellite countries has been happening for centuries.  This is all old news.

Obama Minimum Wage Baloney

Socialist President Pinocchio Obama is out on the campaign trail again pushing Congress to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour.  The Congressional Budget Office conservatively predicts that this increase will cost 500,000 jobs so it is a job killer.   So, while theoretically about 16 million, mostly young people, will benefit from a raise in the minimum wage, it will just be the redistribution of income from the very poor, that will lose their jobs, to the working poor.  How can that be a good thing. 

The current federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour.  States cannot enact a minimum wage that is lower, but many cities and states have enacted minimum wages that are more, which is appropriate.   This should be a state issue because the cost of living in the 50 states varies dramatically.   And, it would still be best that the minimum wage, what ever it is, should be two tier; one for kids under 18, teenagers, and one for adults to provide for first jobs for kids, particularly in our inner cities. 

Most important, if the minimum wage gets too high, it will encourage companies to automate work, or push more jobs overseas causing further job loss in the US.  We will end up with even more people on Welfare and Food Stamps; an Obama objective.  But this Obama propaganda has nothing to do with the minimum wage.   This fight is actually about union labor wages.   Raising the federal minimum wage will bring pressure to raise union wages.   This is the real fight that is taking place.  

Obama's minimum wage propaganda is just more Obama lies and baloney.  Ultimately, the free market should determine wages based on supply and demand and the skills of a worker.   Anything else distorts the economy and will ultimately hurt the very people Socialists are presumably trying to help; just like all Socialist Schemes.

Obama Cuts To Medicare Advantage Program Coming

Ever since ObamaCare was enacted, robbing Medicare of $700 Billion, this Blogger has been saying that there will be big cuts to the Medicare Advantage Program impacting about 20 million Seniors, about 30% of Medicare recipients.   The Medicare Advantage Program is an HMO, provided by insurance companies and paid for by the federal government, that primarily lower income Seniors often opted for rather than having straight Medicare with all of its deductibles and co pays. 

For many Seniors, the Medicare Advantage Program cost little or nothing more than straight Medicare premiums.  However, in exchange, since this is an HMO program, it is limited to only certain doctors and hospitals.  This Blogger's 93 year old mother, who gets very little in Social Security and Pension, has been in a California Medicare Advantage Program for years.   It has worked very well for my Mom through various surgeries and monthly medical care. 

In April, once these 3 - 5% cuts kick in, insurance companies offering the Medicare Advantage Program will determine if they will continue to offer these programs, if they will have to restrict doctors and hospitals further and or if they will have to begin charging recipients monthly premiums.   My guess is that the insurance companies will do all of the above.   By the way, AARP, the American Association of Retired People went along with these cuts to sell more Medigap policies that earn them big commissions.  So, when Socialist President Pinocchio Obama promised the American people that they could keep their current medical plans and doctors, once again related to millions of Seniors, this will prove to be a another very big lie. 

So Medicare Advantage recipients beware,  your benefits will be cut, one way or another, to fund ObamaCare.   That was always part of the plan.  Now 40 Senators, including many Socialists, are asking President Pinocchio Obama to delay these cuts so that they don't hit before the 2014 election.   What a surprise!!  The problem is that Obama needs these cuts to fund ObamaCare, which is already going to cost double what was originally projected.  

So just watch what happens in the next few months.  The Socialists are running scared.   Obama is likely to push these Medicare Advantage cuts out beyond the 2014 election.   Always remember, Socialists will lie, cheat, steal, borrow, extort, target their enemies and history teaches us even murder to stay in power feeding as the trough.  This Medicare Advantage Program is just one more example.

Obama - Just More Lies - Social Security

Socialist President Pinocchio Obama has said that if he just got higher taxes, he would work with Republicans to put a grand deal in place related to saving Social Security and Medicare; both headed toward insolvency.   Well, Obama got 21 new taxes in ObamaCare that will impact all Americans that pay taxes and much higher taxes on the "rich" in the Fiscal Cliff Deal; but once again we see more Obama lies.   Obama had proposed a more Conservative approach to Cost of Living Increases for Social Security, that would not have made Social Security much more solvent, but would have been a start.   At the urging of Socialists in Congress, including Senator Dirty Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, that change is now off the table.   

Everyone knows Socialists will lie, cheat, steal, borrow, extort, target their enemies and history teaches us even murder to stay in power feeding at the trough.   So, this new Pinocchio Obama lie concerning Social Security should be no surprise to anyone.   Socialist in government will never reform Entitlements.   The fact is that there is $127 Trillion in unfunded liability for Social Security and Medicare sitting out there that will explode on the United States like a nuclear bomb in the next 20 years as Baby Boomers retire.   There is only $109 Trillion in combined wealth in the entire United States.  If Socialists confiscated every dollar of wealth in our country, not just a percentage, which they would love to do, it is impossible to cover the unfunded liability for Social Security and Medicare.   Of course, you will never hear any of this from Socialists. 

Instead, even though all Americans that work, except some government employees, pay into Social Security and Medicare, since the money will not be there to pay us our benefits, only the poor will get the benefits that have been promised.   Others will get little or nothing of the money they paid in throughout a life time of work.  Medicare is already means tested.  Anyone with assets will have to pay even more.   Social Security will eventually be means tested, as well, so anyone with assets will get little or nothing.  Social Security is already taxed for Americans with assets.  It will just be taxed even more. 

Social Security and Medicare will turn out to be the biggest Ponzi Scheme in human history.   Americans will have paid in trillions of dollars only to get nothing in return.   The day is coming.   Obama has proven over and over again that he can't be trusted.   So don't believe anything you hear from Pinocchio Obama and his Socialist pals in government, concerning Social Security and Medicare, or really anything else.   It is all just more lies.

Obamanistas Now Want To Control The News

In Journalism 101, students are taught to report the news objectively by identifying the Who, What, Where, When and Why of a story.   That was all before the lame stream, left wing media decided that the American people needed to see, or hear the news with a Socialist Spin.   The left wing media is where the Low Learners in our country get their news.  But it's OK because those of us that want the truth can go to Fox News and other sources to get "fair and balanced" information. 

However, now, Obamanistas at the Federal Communications Commissions are advancing a plan that would allow them to go on to a newsroom floor to determine philosophy and the basis for reporting on some stories and not others.   This of course is all baloney.   The real reason the FCC is attempting to regulate, not just TV and Radio Station News; but also print media, where it has no authority, is that Obamanistas don't like the negative coverage they are getting concerning President Pinocchio Obama's Socialist Schemes.    

In the latest Obama attack on our Constitutional Rights, in this case Freedom of the Press, Obama is trying to turn all media sources that speak the truth into MSNBC, the Mindless Socialist Network Broadcasting Corporation, that is nothing more than a mouth piece for Obama and the Socialist Party of America.  Obama wants the American version of Pravda, the old Soviet Union Communist Party propaganda machine throughout the media.   Since the FCC controls licensing for both TV and Radio stations, this threat is real and designed to have a chilling effect. 

All Americans, even Socialists, should stand up and say absolutely NOT.   Socialists need to remember that one day the President may be a Conservative.   What is used by one President to punish perceived enemies can be used by another President the same way when the shoe is on the other foot.   Let's see how the Socialists in government handle this hot potato and attack on Freedom.  

These characters always say they support protecting our freedoms; but then given the opportunity, they do everything they can to grow government to intrude into all aspect of life taking away our freedoms.   Since the first day Obama was elected, all of our freedoms have been under attack.   WE THE PEOPLE must stand up and say NO MORE to these Obamanista thugs.

Homeland Security Now Tracking Driving Habits

The US Department of Homeland Security, that purchased thousands of assault rifles and millions of rounds of ammunition, has secretly been working on technology to photograph license plates as we drive our cars.  This is already happening in some cities; however they intend to create a federal registry, in all cities, tracking our driving habits all in the name of national security.   Really??  Homeland Security, under Obama, is becoming a federal Gestapo police force.   Why do we need this.  Isn't the FBI in place to deal with criminals that cross state lines. 

This new encroachment on our freedom, when combined with the National Security Agency's monitoring of our phone calls and emails is chilling to say the least.  The US Constitution guarantees freedom of speech, press, religion and assembly as basic to our rights.  The fact is that the federal government is becoming Big Brother, under Socialist President Pinocchio Obama, who has used the IRS, the EPA, the Justice Department and potentially now Homeland Security to target his "enemies".   The notion that Obamanistas, or any future President of either party, will now have all of this information at his disposal should sound alarm bells for all Americans.  We are headed toward Totalitarianism. 

Richard Nixon was forced to resign from office because of a botched break in and cover up.   Obama makes Richard Nixon look like a choir boy.  Each day, under Obama we are losing more of our freedom as government intrudes into all aspect of daily life.  This latest encroachment by Homeland Security is particularly scary.   Who do they plan to use all those assault rifles against as an internal security agency.  

It is clear that Obamanistas are planning for the civil strife that is likely to happen when we have the economic collapse of the United States as a result of their deficit spending that is bankrupting our country.   This spying on the American people is in preparation for the imposition of the police state that in many ways is already here.    We The People must stand up now before it is too late and say NO to more spying on the American people.

Socialists - Whose Bread They Eat

Whose Bread They Eat, Whose Song They Sing.   Right now, Socialists like President Pinocchio Obama and his Socialist pals in government are singing like canaries because Tom Steyer, a Socialist billionaire, plans to spend $100 million in the 2014 election cycle to support Socialist candidates.   Steyer made his billions from involvement with one of the most successful hedge funds in history.  Wait a minute, I thought Socialists believe hedge fund managers are greedy, rich, evil people, that don't pay their "fair share", living off the poor.

Of course, there must be good and bad hedge fund managers depending on whether they support Socialists, or not.   In this case, Steyer is an environmental radical who founded NextGen Climate Action, a political action committee, in business to support candidates committed to ending Global Warming.   Steyer ran ads opposing the Keystone Pipeline that were so dishonest that they were awarded four Pinocchio's by the Washington Post.  

None of this matters because we all know that Socialists will lie, cheat, steal, borrow, extort, target their enemies and history teaches us even murder to stay in power feeding at the trough.  This rule certainly applies to Global Warming, or what Socialists are now calling Climate Change.   So just this week, Obamanistas are back on the road arguing for higher taxes on carbon based energy.   Obama is coming out with an Executive Order to limit emissions from trucks that carry all of the goods we buy every day.  Hang on to your wallets.   This will mean higher prices at the super market.  

And, then there is brie eating, French Speaking, kept rich man, Secretary of State John Kerry comparing the threat of Climate Change to weapons of mass destruction.   Kerry is both a liar and a moron.  All of these pronouncements happen to coincide with Tom Steyer's announcement that he will spend $100 million to support Socialist candidates in the 2014 election.   What a coincidence!  Whose Bread They Eat,  Whose Song They Sing.

Socialists and Global Warming - Just Another Socialist Scheme

Socialists have stopped using the term Global Warming.  Now they talk about Climate Change because when Americans in the East, Midwest and South experience the coldest winter in decades, we obviously cannot relate to the term Global Warming.   But, it now gets worse.  French speaking, brie eating Secretary of State John Kerry, with his Boston accent now claims that Climate Change is as big a threat to the world as Weapons of Mass Destruction.   So, if the climate is changing by a few degrees every few hundred years, whether getting hotter or cooler, which is still debatable, Kerry is now claiming that it has the same impact as a nuclear explosion detonated by a Terrorist in a major US city.  It is clear that Kerry is a rich, kept man, high brow, Socialist moron. 

Here is the real story.  Socialists, including President Pinocchio Obama want to tax all carbon based energy used in the industrialized world, specifically in North America and Europe, to grow government even bigger, which will slow economic growth in the private sector.   These characters hate Free Markets and Capitalism.  Socialists intentionally want to cause a lower standard of living for the American people.   These loons believe that the West is too rich when compared to the developing world.   Socialist believe that we in the West use too much of the world's natural resources at the expense of the poor.  Socialists like Obama not only want to redistribute income in the United States.  They want to redistribute income out of the United States to the third world. 

The reality is that carbon emissions in industrialized Western countries have been falling for years.   The real problem, if it is a problem related to carbon emissions, is coming from China and India that have refused to sign any kind of treaty limiting their use of carbon based energy.  China, in particular, is bringing on a new coal fired power plant every week, which is the reason pollution in China is unbearable.   The reality is that there is nothing that can be done by Western countries that would have any impact on the environment as long as China and India continue polluting the air without any limits.  

However, none of this matters.   Dealing with Global Warming, or Climate Change, the new Socialist term, is just one more Socialist Scheme focused on redistribution of wealth, growing government, destroying the private sector and forcing Americans to have a lower standard of living.   Of course, you will never hear the truth from Pinocchio Obama, his minions, or his Socialist pals in government.  

The fact is that Climate Change is a normal occurrence that has been happening in the world for thousands of years.  Whether human activity is contributing to it, or not, is irrelevant.   If it is happening, which again is debatable, it is the result of normal climatic cycles that have occurred long before there was any carbon emissions produced by human beings.   Don't believe all the Socialist hype and left wing science.  Always remember, Socialist will lie, cheat, steal, borrow, extort, target their enemies and history teaches us even murder to stay in power feeding at the trough.   All the Socialist hype about Global Warming is just one more example.

President's Day In The US - History

The third Monday in February of each year, President's Day, is a National Holiday in the US.  Schools, Banks and many businesses are closed to honor all Presidents of the United States, but most importantly our greatest Presidents.  The reason the month of February was originally chosen for this holiday is because both George Washington, born February 22, 1732 and Abraham Lincoln born February 12, 1809, two of our greatest Presidents were born in this month.   But another great President was also born in February, one of this Blogger's heroes, Ronald Reagan was born on February 6, 1911. 

Those of us that lived through the failed Carter Presidency, the Reagan Presidency and now the failed Obama Presidency, long for the days of Ronald Reagan.   The lame stream, left wing media at the time characterized Reagan as a Simpleton and a Cowboy.   The left wing media doesn't do that today because Reagan was clearly one of our greatest Presidents, but they still hate him because he was a successful Conservative.  After the dismal Carter Presidency, high inflation, the hostage crisis, gas lines and "malaise" in our country during the horrible Carter years, Ronald Reagan brought morning in America again. 

From Reagan's election in November, 1980 big thing started happening.   Reagan signaled to the Iranian's that he would take military action to end the hostage crisis and he had the credibility to make his threat believable.  It is no coincidence that as Reagan was being sworn in as President, the Iranians released the hostages, that very moment, after holding them for more than 400 days.   Reagan was shot in 1981, not long after taking office; but in characteristic good humor, while on the operating table, Reagan quipped to the doctors that saved his life, I hope some of you are Republicans to which the doctors said, Mr. President, "we are all Republicans today".   That day actually began the Reagan Presidency. 

Ronald Reagan, like Pope John Paul, lived through an assignation attempt, which was their destiny.   Ronald Reagan worked with a Democrat Congress to cut taxes, restore incredible economic growth, rebuild our military, conspire with Pope John Paul to bring down Communism and end the Cold War.  It is important to note that Reagan inherited a horrible economy from Jimmy Carter, born October 1, 1924, yet this Blogger does not remember one instance of Reagan continuing to blame Carter for the mess he inherited.  It is also important to note that it was Ronald Reagan who signed the bill allowing for the Earned Income Tax Credit to benefit the working poor. 

Reagan always looked to the future and never look backwards.  And, Ronald Reagan was not afraid to speak the truth when he called the Communist Soviet Union the "evil empire" that is was.  Most important, Ronald Reagan never, never attempted to divide our country, the way Obama does every day because Reagan knew correctly that America wins when we work as a team. 

The election in 1980 was the first time this Blogger, then 30 years old, voted for a Conservative and a Republican.  It was Ronald Reagan who helped me realize that government was the problem and not the solution.  Gosh, do we see that today under Socialist Pinocchio Obama who works hard to divide our nation into rich and poor, men and women, white and black, straight and gay.  Obama is in business to grow government to intrude into all aspects of daily life even though we will all be poorer for it.  

Clearly, Obama, born on August 4, 1961, like October born Jimmy Carter, will never go down as one of our great Presidents, celebrated in February because Obama is incompetent and does not understand the job, which Obama has in common with Carter.  Obviously, Obama is no Ronald Reagan; that's for sure.  We need another Ronald Reagan to both bring our country back together and deal with the big problems we face today.   We can only hope that just maybe in 2016, that person, a Conservative, willing to speak in "bold colors not pastels" will emerge again.

Workers Reject United Auto Workers Union

Auto workers at the Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee wisely rejected representation by the United Auto Workers Union.   Ironically, in this particular case German car maker Volkswagen actually encouraged a vote in favor of the union because VW Management is very accustomed to dealing with unions.  In any case, a majority of the folks that work at the plant said, No Thanks. 

Who can blame them.   Factory workers in the United States are protected by all sorts of state and federal laws that govern work rules.  In addition, auto makers in the South pay competitive wages.  So why on earth would auto workers want to pay union dues to support fat cat, cigar smoking union bosses.  It is these same bosses that bankrupted GM and Chrysler and caused several hundred thousand jobs to be shipped overseas because of unreasonable compensation, benefits and work rule demands.   The Auto Union kept squeezing the balloon and when the financial crisis hit, it burst. 

This vote against the United Auto Workers spells bad news for the union that has been trying to organize car plants in the South.  The Volkswagen Plant was its best chance of getting a positive vote.   Other states in the South are all right to work states, which is one of the reasons new car plants were built there.   Union representation would be a waste of money for these workers, since they are already well paid and get good benefits.  The fact is that only public employee unions are growing.   Unions in the manufacturing private sector have been on the decline for years.

New Cadillac Ad Celebrates American Dream

A new Cadillac ad celebrates the American Dream recognizing that hard work and ambition that lead to wealth is a good thing.  This ad is in contrast to Obamanista Socialist ideology that the rich are evil causing income inequality.  It is ironic that Obama bailed out GM to benefit the auto unions at the expense of the bond holders, the real owners of GM.   But now, the marketing company working with GM to sell Cadillacs realizes that the people that might buy Cadillacs are not Socialists.  

In fact, this funny new ad mocks the French for taking 4 weeks vacation and the whole month of August off as anti-American, saying that two weeks vacation and hard work are what allows Americans to have the good life; not more time off.  This is happening as Obama is trying to "transform" the United States into a European style Socialist country with a much lower standard of living, the same as in Europe. 

From a personal standpoint, this Blogger used to own GM cars including Buicks, Oldsmobiles and Cadillacs.  It all ended one day when the local Cadillac dealer refused to service my car because each time I was asked to return a service survey, I continued to complain about the fact that the dealer closed their service department on Saturdays, which made it inconvenient to me.  They turned me away, a 20 year customer, rather than continue to get my ding on their ratings.  I even called GM in Detroit to complain and I was told that the local dealer could choose to do business with whom ever they chose to which I said that I had the same option. 

That particular year in 2008, this Blogger's family bought four cars; a Mercedes, a Lexus and two Honda's never to return to GM again.  Given the government bail out of GM and Chrysler that cost the American taxpayer more than $15 billion when the dust settled and my prior experience, I pledged that I would never buy a GM, or Chrysler product again.   Though I must say, Cadillac's new ad has caught my attention.  Now if only they would open their service department on Saturday again, just maybe I will consider Cadillac as an option.  Of course, now that the federal government no longer owns any part of GM, the Senior Management of GM better tell Socialist Obama that it is ok to get rich in America.  In fact, it is the American Dream. 

Republicans - Always About The Next Election

The Republican Party Establishment in Washington believes that the ObamaCare Debacle is the key to victory in 2014 and 2016.  While it may allow them to retain the House of Representatives, opposition to ObamaCare alone will not be the basis for winning back the US Senate and eventually the Presidency.   In the last few months, rather than make waves, Republicans allowed a Budget to be enacted that raised spending and increased the National Debt Ceiling in the name of "governing", rather than face criticism from Socialists and the lame stream left wing media.  As a political junkie, I fully understand the strategy. 

However, if "governing" means contributing to the bankruptcy of the country and the eventual collapse of the United States, then Thanks for Nothing.   The fact is that RINOS at the state and federal level have been complicit in expanding 100 years of Socialist Creep and deficit spending for years to stay in power feeding at the trough just like Socialists.   The only difference is that Republicans often claim to be for limited government, lower taxes and less regulation and moan a bit when it does not happen; but when push comes to shove they do not take the hard stands necessary to get our fiscal house in order.  Republicans are just as responsible for our $17.3 Trillion National Debt as Socialists. 

It is true that Republicans can't be the party of NO.   Republicans do need to be the party of solutions and an opportunity society.  Now is the time for Republicans in the House of Representatives to enact legislation to cut spending and taxes, reform our tax and Entitlement systems, limit government, replace ObamaCare, reform Immigration and strike down regulations that are job killers.   Of course, none of this will go anywhere with Socialists in control of the White House and the Senate; but it does not matter.  

The American people need to understand the Republican definition of "governing".  In addition, Conservatives need a reason to go to the polls in 2014 and 2016, if Republicans are to have any chance of retaining the House of Representatives, gaining the Senate and winning the Presidency. 
Right now this Blogger is inclined to sit on my hands and checkbook, rather than support a Republican Party at the state and federal level that talks a good game; but is missing in action.

Republicans Boehner & McConnell Cave On Debt Ceiling Deal

Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell both caved to Socialist demands to raise the Debt Ceiling once again without any cost cutting conditions.   So President Pinocchio Obama will be able to continue borrowing and adding to our $17.3 Trillion National Debt without any other cuts in spending.   This is outrageous and just demonstrates that John Boehner and Mitch McConnell have to go.  Boehner and McConnell are allowing the Socialists to bankrupt our country, which makes them complicit in this fiscal insanity that continues in Washington DC.   Even though most Republicans voted NO, Boehner and McConnell allowed raising the Debt Ceiling to come up for a vote.  

When oh when are we going to get deficit spending and borrowing to fund it under control.  The answer appears to be never.   As a political junkie, this Blogger understands that it is all about the next election; but it is always about the next election.   If Republicans don't stand firm in their support of limited, smaller government, lower taxes and less regulation and stopping the fiscal insanity, then there is no reason for the Republican Party to exist anymore.  It will go the way of the Whig Party as we establish the Conservative Party of the United States and face off against the Socialist Party in head to head battles on key issues.  It is certainly not happening now under Boehner and McConnell's leadership. 

Of course, all Socialists in Congress voted to give Obama an open check book.  The few Republicans that voted to increase the Debt Ceiling unconditionally, even if part of a political tactic, should be primaried.  No Republican can claim to be for debt reduction and presumably paying off the National Debt, while voting time after time to increase it.   The National Debt is now greater than our annual Gross Domestic Product.   We are heading into very dangerous territory.   If this does not stop and soon, we will see the economic collapse of the United States and then all bets are off.  We will have civil strife on our streets and maybe even the dissolution of the United States.  Remember the Soviet Union did not collapse because it was militarily weak; but rather because its Communist Economic System fell apart. 

And this is not the whole story.  There is over $127 Trillion in unfunded liability that is not even on the books for Social Security and Medicare and that does not include local, state and federal pensions that are also under water.  Just go to to see the whole ugly picture.   Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell acted irresponsibly in allowing the vote to increase the Debt Ceiling to go forward without any cuts in spending.   This is just plain crazy.

ObamaCare Must Be Repealed

Dictator, Socialist President Pinocchio Obama, facing backlash from the American people and the 2014 and 2016 elections keeps changing ObamaCare by Executive Orders, which are Unconstitutional.   This time, Obama has exempted companies with 50 - 99 employees from the mandate to provide medical insurance, or face penalty now until 2016.   Gosh, do you think that has anything to do with the election in 2016.  Companies with 100 employees or more are still on the hook in 2015, but by Obama dictate, they can insure fewer people than the law says is required for while longer.   What the hell is Obama doing.  It is clear that Socialists are running scared because they know they are going to get killed at the polls in 2014 as a result of all the bad ObamaCare shoes that keep falling daily. 

ObamaCare must be REPEALED.  It is a train wreck that has hit the American people, which is the reason Obama keeps changing the rules.  It is a job killer.  ObamaCare has resulted in millions of people losing their health insurance and their doctors.  The Congressional Budget Office has reported that 2.3 million people will lose their jobs in the next ten years because of ObamaCare.   The Brookings Institute, a liberal Think Tank, has reported that 80% of Americans will pay more for medical insurance and treatment because of ObamaCare.   There are even some poor people falling between the cracks in states that have not accepted Expanded Medicaid that now have no insurance at all.  All of Pinocchio Obama's pronouncements about ObamaCare were lies. 

What more has to happen for Obamanistas and Socialists that voted for this monstrosity to admit that ObamaCare is a National Disaster as bad as Katrina.   Next, we will see the bail out of the insurance companies.  But, Socialists just will not admit that they have harmed 80% of the American people.  Instead, Socialists are now saying, isn't it great that people can work less and still get free medical insurance. Oh really???  IT IS NOT FREE A--H---S.   Hard working American Taxpayers that still do work for a living are paying for ObamaCare subsidies and all other Entitlements and people on the dole.  Enough is enough.  Our only hope is that Conservatives retain the House of Representatives and take over the US Senate and eventually the Presidency in 2014 and 2016.  ObamaCare must be REPEALED.  This monstrosity can't be fixed.   We need to start over to get real health care reform.

American Morality & The Rest Of The World

Hollywood, the lame stream left wing media and Socialists in government in the US have established what is acceptable related to morality in our country.   So hooking up to have sex outside of marriage, having babies out of wedlock, using drugs, unlimited access to abortion and gay marriage are all considered fine by some in America that for the moment control the American media and our government.  And, it is these things that they attempt to impose on all Americans and the rest of the world.   Only problem is that most Americans and Billions of other people in the world do not support this left wing, politically correct version of morality.

In fact, many Christians, Jews and Muslims, in particular, do not support any of these things.  Many people of the Book (Bible, Torah and Koran) are incensed by this left wing, politically correct version of morality.  In the extreme, it is one of the reasons radical Muslims are waging Jihad (Holy War) against Western countries when they refer to the US as the Great Satan.   Whether right or wrong, they do not want these values imposed on them.  Rest of the world, be assured, it is Hollywood, the lame stream left wing media and Socialists in America that are agents of the devil, not the vast majority of the American people.  In our country, we fight our government, as well, but in court to stop Obama and Socialist government over reach and intrusion into our personal freedom to believe as we choose. 

Even so, Obamanistas attempt to impose their left wing, secular morality in our foreign policy as they lecture other countries because they do not support the moral values espoused in our popular culture by Hollywood, the lame stream left wing media and the atheist Socialists that run our government.   Obviously, this does not go over very well in many countries that hold to more traditional religious values of right and wrong and moral behavior.   Who is to say that the morality demonstrated in our popular culture is the right approach.  Clearly, billions of people in the world, including most Americans, believe otherwise.   This is the basis of the culture clash in America and the reason why we are so divided often into Red and Blue states.   In fact, we have never been so divided since the Civil War.

John Kennedy Was A Conservative

What often gets lost in the stories about Camelot, a reference to President John F. Kennedy's Administration, is that he was a Roman Catholic Conservative who opposed abortion.   Kennedy once said that he was a Democrat because he was born one.   All should remember that 1960 was a very different time with a very different Democrat Party.   The Democrat solid South was then run by Democrat racists, until they saw the light, including Lyndon B. Johnson.  It is true that Kennedy began pushing for Civil Rights legislation, as the right thing to do, before he was murdered; but it only happened after Johnson took over with Republican support.   Don't forget it was Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican President, who freed the slaves.   Democrats in the South did everything possible to repress and even murder Blacks after the Civil War, including forming the Ku Klux Klan. 

John Kennedy was a fiscal Conservative.  He did not expand the Welfare state in his short term in office.  Matter of fact, Kennedy did not support big government Keynesian economics when pushed by John Kenneth Galbraith, the liberal economist in his Administration.   Galbraith later commented that Kennedy told him to shut up.  The only reason Kennedy invested in the space race was because of the Soviet threat; not because he believed in new government programs.  John Kennedy like Ronald Reagan believed that "a rising tide raises all boats", which is the reason Kennedy enacted a tax cut to spur economic growth. 

John Kennedy was also a hawk who often referred to the "Commie" Threat.  It was John Kennedy who risked nuclear war, rather than allow the Soviet Communists to place nuclear armed missiles in Cuba.   We can only wonder what Socialist President Pinocchio Obama would do today if faced with the same threat; probably lead from behind at the United Nations. 

John F. Kennedy was an old style Northeastern Democrat and probably even a closet Conservative Republican.   Socialists today claim Kennedy as one of their heroes; but the fact is that John Kennedy was no Socialist.  Far from it.  John Kennedy had a lot more in common with Ronald Reagan than Pinocchio Obama; that's for sure.  A new revisionist history book is coming out shortly that makes this case. 

Immigration Reform - Obama Can't Be Trusted

Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner has slowed down the pace of Immigration Reform legislation in the House of Representative because Republican don't trust Socialist President Pinocchio Obama, who is ignoring current Immigration Laws on the books now by Executive Order.   Republicans fear that Obama will use his "pen and his phone" to rewrite whatever Immigration legislation is enacted as he is doing with ObamaCare and many other laws on the books.   Who can blame them for distrusting Obama.  Most Americans distrust Obama, the Liar In Chief. 

The real issue is what to do about the 11 million illegal aliens working in our country now.  Under no circumstances should those who came to America older than 18 years old be given a path to citizenship, outside the normal legal system.  These people should have to wait in line just like the millions of others that want to come to our country.   An argument could be made that kids brought to America involuntarily that graduate from our high schools should be given an opportunity to become citizens.   For all intents and purposes, these kids are Americans now, referred to as Dreamers.   They are less Dreamers than kids just caught between their parents and the law. 

If Congress provides legal status to their parents, allowing them to pay a fine and come out of the shadows, the law must be iron clad denying Pinocchio Obama any opportunity to somehow give these people a path to citizenship outside the normal process.  It is obvious that Obama must be denied any wiggle room, on penalty of Impeachment because given the chance, Obama will put these people on the dole and give them citizenship to gain more Socialist voters.   Republicans cannot allow that to happen.  

Specific to other issues that should be a no brainer, like securing the border first, again without any wiggle room for Pinocchio,  allowing foreign college graduates to stay in our country by providing an automatic Green Card and allowing more educated immigrants with skills we need to enter our country legally, Republicans should act in 2014 to get this done.   It is true that Obama can't be trusted; but fortunately he will be gone in a few years so perhaps, just maybe, we can get back to honest Constitutional government, instead of Obama's Presidential illegal actions.

EPA Gestapo Killing The Coal Industry & Jobs

Socialist President Pinocchio Obama's radical EPA Gestapo is determined to destroy the coal industry.   Shortly, the President will do by Executive Order what he can't get done by an act of Congress.  The EPA is planning to set emission standards, related to coal fired power plants so low, that no new coal plant will ever be built in the United States again.   Our country has a 200 years supply of cheap coal.  Rather than figuring out ways to make energy cleaner, safer and cheaper, Obama is doing everything he can by Executive Order to raise the cost of energy in the United States, which is going to hurt the poor and Middle Class most.

But the story is not over.   Just wait and see since utility prices continue to rise, Socialists in the US will soon advocate energy subsidies, to put more people on the dole, the same as occurs in Europe because the cost of energy there is so high as a result of government actions and taxes.   In the mean time, we are having one for the coldest winters in years.   So much for Global Warming. 

And, then there are all the jobs that will be lost in coal country.  Many coal miner families have been mining coal for generations earning very good money.  These are people with little or no education often earning $80,000 or more a year.  Coal is integral to a Middle Class in coal country.   Once these jobs are gone, what are these people supposed to do.  Oh, I know;  go on extended Unemployment, Welfare, Disability and Food Stamps, what else.

Socialist President Obama is destroying the Middle Class in America and increasing the number of the poor by providing his new Entitlement programs to keep them on the dole voting for Socialists.   Middle Class families are earning about $5,000 a year less since Obama was elected.  ObamaCare is the icing on the cake as the Brookings Institute, a liberal Thank Tank, just reported that 80% of Americans will pay more for health insurance as a result of ObamaCare.   This is primarily the Middle Class they are talking about.   Any time the President, or any of his Socialist pals in government talk about helping the poor and Middle Class, all should know that these statements are just more Obama lies and B--L S--T.  Obama is not called Pinocchio for nothing.

Drugs, Hollywood & Socialists

Recently, a fine actor, Philip Seymour Hoffman, died of a heroin overdose and Hollywood mourned his death.   Broadway turned off their lights for one minute to honor him.  Every time a high profile Hollywood type dies of an overdose, it is big news.   The fact is that hundreds, maybe thousands of Americans die every year in the United States of a drug overdose.  We rarely hear about any of those people.

Hollywood, supported by their Socialist allies and the lame stream, left wing media, is a drug culture.  Rather than condemn the use of drugs,  when one of these deaths occurs, Hollywood often makes it look like fun in movies and even downplays the harmful effect of drug abuse.   When a Hollywood type dies, they do mourn the death; but never condemn the behavior. 

Now many states are legalizing recreational use of Marijuana.  Socialist President Pinocchio Obama claims that Marijuana is no different than alcohol, when there are studies that show that continued use actually causes brain damage in the form of a lower IQ.  The President admits to drug use when he was young so perhaps that is the reason Obama seems to be tolerant of drugs.  Further, many of the same people who support Marijuana, abhor cigarette smoking.  Isn't putting smoke in your lungs that causes cancer and contains one addictive chemical, or another equally as bad.  This Blogger just does not understand this positioning.

Drugs, Hollywood and Socialists go together.  Hollywood has done more to promote the legalization of drugs, that every now and then kills one of their own.  If they don't care, why should we.  Only problem is that drugs are killing hundreds, if not thousands of Americans every year that we all should care about, especially the impacted families.   Too bad Hollywood, Socialists and the lame stream media just don't care about the tragic deaths they are causing.   


IRS Gestapo To Get Bonuses

The new IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, appointed by Socialist President Pinocchio Obama, the Liar In Chief, announced that bonuses are being restored at the IRS.   $62.5 million will be paid out to IRS employees to maintain their "morale".   Most of this money is going to IRS union employees.   Obama has turned the IRS into a political arm of the Socialist Party in place to punish Obama's perceived "enemies" and in return they are all going to get a bonus/payoff for their service.   Surprise, Surprise.

Though Obama recently claimed there is not a smidgen of corruption at the IRS, we all know that the IRS has targeted and persecuted Conservative and Religious groups.  Let's also not forget that it is the IRS that is enforcing ObamaCare, the single most hated program in American history.  Not since Richard Nixon have we seen the IRS politicized and used the way it is being used today by Obama.   The IRS is one of Obama's Gestapos, along with the National Security Agency, the Justice Department, the EPA and the National Labor Relations Board carrying out Obama's Socialist Schemes to "transform our nation" into a Socialist, or maybe even Communist Welfare State where half the people support the other half, Obama's PEEP's that vote Socialist.

So now, these thugs at the IRS, like Lois Lerner and the others who obviously committed crimes, when they targeted Obama's political enemies, that should have landed them in jail, are now going to get these bonus monies.  This is happening when many Middle Class Americans are now earning about $5,000 a year less, since Obama was elected.   What is wrong with this picture.

Socialist Schemes Hurt The Poor & Middle Class

The Congressional Budget Office just reported that 2.3 million full time jobs are likely to be lost in the next ten years as employers make jobs part time to avoid the cost of ObamaCare.  Or, the CBO reported that people will just drop out of the work force altogether because they know they can get free health care benefits.   The big unions are going nuts because their Cadillac medical plans, that now will be taxed under ObamaCare, that they spent 50 years fighting, for will go down the drain as more jobs are designated part time.    ObamaCare is contributing to the destruction of the Middle Class in America. 

Socialists refuse to allow poor kids to escape failing public schools, by providing School Vouchers so inner city kids can go to better private schools because teacher union support is more important to Socialist elections than making sure kids are well educated.  Poor inner city kids are now the new slaves on the public school plantation with teacher unions as their masters.  It is shameful. 

Welfare has destroyed the Black family as 7 out of 10 Black babies are now born out of wedlock often into poverty.   47 million Americans are now on Welfare and Food Stamps, up 20 million since Pinocchio Obama was first elected.  14 million Americans are now on tax free Disability Benefits, often fraudulently, up several million since Obama first took office.  This money comes right out of the Social Security Trust Fund to the detriment of Social Security that is going bankrupt and will not be there for the poor and Middle Class in the future.  Obamanistas have made it easier to get these benefits to the detriment of the very people they say they want to help by making them dependent on the government. 

Cheap energy is key to a growing economy and a higher standard of living for all Americans.  Yet, Socialists at all levels of government do everything they can to tax energy and make it more expensive.   This is directly killing jobs and hurting the poor and the Middle Class.   All should remember that Socialists will lie, cheat, steal, extort, target their enemies and history teaches us even murder to stay in power.   What is worse,  Socialists will do everything they can to keep the poor, poor and make the Middle Class poorer and on the dole to buy votes.   Sadly, it is what it is.

Pinocchio Obama - Just More Lies

Bill O'Reily of Fox News recently interviewed Socialist President Pinocchio Obama and all we heard is just more lies from the President.  O'Reily asked questions about all the Obama Scandals; Benghazi, the IRS Dirty Tricks and ObamaCare.  Obama is sticking to the original script about Benghazi even though he knew within minutes of the attack that is was implemented by Al Queda Terrorists, not as a result of some spontaneous demonstration by people who saw a video.   The fact that Obama would stick to this story, when the Senate Committee controlled by Socialists has said otherwise, is remarkable. 

And then, Obama actually claimed that the IRS did not target Conservatives and various religious groups even though many of them are now suing the federal government alleging this targeting.   Obama claimed there was not one smidgen of corruption in the IRS.  Oh really!!  The IRS Director met with White House operatives 157 times, from 2010 to 2012, more than any other IRS Director in American history and the timeframe with this targeting took place.   What the hell were they discussing.   Obama's promised a swift investigation that has still has not happened.  Since the Justice Department appointed an Obama campaign contributor and crony to conduct this investigation a year later, it is obvious that we will see a white wash related to the IRS Dirty Tricks Scandal.   This is far worse than Watergate; yet there is no outrage from the left wing media. 

Finally, Obama just can't admit that ObamaCare is a complete failure that has hurt many Americans.  Obama keeps saying that millions have signed up for ObamaCare, which is just not true.  Most that have enrolled have signed up for Medicaid that they were eligible for anyway.  The President lied when he said "you can keep your medical plan and doctors, PERIOD.  Obamanistas knew in 2010 that this simply was not true.   Obama's campaign stooges insisted that Obama perpetuate this lie during the 2012 campaign.   The fact is that millions of Americans have lost their health insurance, while others have seen their medical premiums go up dramatically. 

Socialist President Pinocchio Obama is the Liar In Chief, which is why the majority of Americans do not trust the President.  We can't believe a word that comes out Obama's mouth.  Best of all, Obama blamed Fox News for continuing to report on these Scandals.  Well yah!   The lame stream, left wing media is part of Obama's propaganda machine that never reports the truth.  Always remember, Socialists will lie, cheat, steal, borrow, extort, target their enemies and history teaches us even murder to stay in power feeding at the trough.   Sadly, Pinocchio Obama proves this rule true.

Dirty Harry Reid & The Do Nothing US Senate

When Socialist President Pinocchio Obama talks about the Do Nothing Congress, he really should be talking about the Do Nothing US Senate, led by Socialist Majority Leader Senator Dirty Harry Reid of Nevada.  Aside from repealing ObamaCare more than 40 times, the Republican led House of Representatives has enacted more than 40 bills that would create jobs and be good for America.  Dirty Harry will not even allow those bills to come up for debate in the US Senate because he knows that many of them would be enacted with Bi-Partisan support.  And, if the President would just do his job, instead of always talking about it, these bills could be crafted, based on compromise, that would satisfy both Conservatives and Socialists in government.  That is how our government is supposed to work.  Instead, we see gridlock because of Dirty Harry Reid. 

If Dirty Harry would have allowed these Republican enacted bills to be debated and voted on in the Senate, instead of averaging 2% GDP growth since 2009, we might have seen 3% or higher GDP growth.   However, since the Socialist's goal is to get as many people on the dole as possible to insure that these low information Americans will vote for Socialists, allowing them to stay in office, feeding at the trough, the last thing Socialists want is a thriving economy and Middle Class.  The President and his Socialist pals in government have achieved their goal.  We now have the highest poverty rate and the lowest labor participation rate in three decades, thanks to Socialist economic schemes. 

But this time, it is going to backfire.  Socialists have given up any hope of taking back the House of Representatives in 2014.  They now are completely focused on the US Senate, where seven Socialist seats are in jeopardy because of Obama's failed policies.   These Socialist Senators, all in red states that were won by Mitt Romney and by big margins, will not be even be seen with Obama, Reid or Pelosi because they know that they are poison for them.

If there is any person in the country that is responsible for ObamaCare, it is Senator Dirty Harry Reid of Nevada. who used a parliamentary maneuver to cram ObamaCare through the Senate.  Since not one Republican in Congress voted for ObamaCare, anyone who has lost their health insurance and or seen their premiums and deductibles go up dramatically can thank Dirty Harry Reid.  Reid who has been in the US Senate is a millionaire by questionable means.   Reid has family members working in Washington DC, earning millions of dollars as paid lobbyists, lobbying Reid.  Go figure.   Even thought he will be 75 years old by then, Senator Dirty Harry Reid has already announced that he will seek a 7th term in 2016, senile or not.  Certainly, there is too much corrupt money to be made for Reid and his family to leave voluntarily.  Reid will either have to be carried out of the Senate,  or defeated to get rid of this dinosaur and poster child for term limits. 

Common Sense Conservatives must be elected in 2014 and 2016 that believe in Free Market Capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulations if we have any hope of getting our country back on track.   We have to keep the House of Representatives and take back the US Senate to get rid of Socialist Senator Dirty Harry and all his shenanigans.  This one man has done more to harm our nation that any single other person, including Pinocchio Obama, in modern history.   We have to send Dirty Harry back to that hell hole he came from in Search Light, Nevada and the sooner the better.  Of course, Reid will never come back to Nevada.  Living at the Ritz Carlton in Washington DC, raking in the big bucks, is more likely to remain his home away from home.

4% GDP Growth - Jobs, Jobs, Jobs

Socialist President Pinocchio Obama is running around the country talking about income inequality and helping the Middle Class when in fact his economic policy has negatively impacted everyone who works for a living.  The facts are simple.  The Obama Recession technically lasted from 2007 - 2009; but not really.  In most years after Recessions, the economy grows by 4% or more a year; but not during the Obama Presidency.   Obama's Socialists Schemes, higher taxes and more regulations have all been job killers, so much so that we have averaged 2% GDP Growth since 2009, not nearly enough to deal with real unemployment.  The rich have gotten richer because companies have cut costs so Wall Street is doing fine and property values are starting to rebound.  But the poor have gotten poorer and so the poverty rate is now higher than three decades ago.  And, the Middle Class is earning about $5,000 less in real terms since Obama was elected.  Thank You Mr. President. 

We need 4% GDP growth every year to deal with both income inequality and raising wages for Middle Class families.  It will not happen any other way despite what you hear from Socialist politicians.   In the June 10, 2013 edition of Forbes magazine, in an article written by Rich Karlgaard, he called it right.   We can achieve 4% GDP growth if we implement a lower, flatter and simpler tax  system, including corporate tax reform, to keep more jobs in the US.  We need sensible regulations that set the rules of the road; but don't stifle job creation.  It is time for Entitlement Reform to save Social Security and Medicare from going bankrupt.  And, we need real health care reform that brings down the cost of health care.  This means repealing ObamaCare.   Finally, this Blogger would add an all of the above Energy Plan that makes the US energy independent within 10 years and meaningful Immigration Reform. 

Most of these things will happen as long as Socialists control any branch of government.  No matter what Socialists say, we cannot deal with income inequality, or helping the Middle Class as long as they continue to borrow, tax and spend to expand the federal government through deficit spending.  In fact, we need to cut federal government spending to free up resources to grow the private sector where real jobs happen.  Federal government spending is about where it was during World War II at about 25% of GDP.  It should be around 17 or 18% of GDP because government does not use our money more wisely or efficiently than we can use it ourselves.   The waste, fraud and abuse in federal government spending is just money down a rat hole. 

We can grow GDP by 4% or more a year; but government has to get out of the way.   That means electing Common Sense Conservatives in 2014 and 2016 that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulations.  We have to create good paying jobs to deal with income inequality and to build a thriving Middle Class.  It will not happen any other way.   Obama's Socialist Economic Schemes are job killers.   Cards talk and numbers don't lie. The numbers since Obama took office have been dismal.
