Socialist Nancy Pelosi Talks Of The Baby Jesus

Socialist Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and the Minority Leader of the US House of Representatives recently said that we should see the Illegal Alien children coming across our border as refugees just like Baby Jesus.  This Blogger does not understand the analogy; though I don't understand much of what Dizzy Pelosi has to say.  According to Christian theology, Jesus was born in Bethlehem to the Virgin Mary as the son of God in what is now the West Bank and Palestinian territory; but was then Israel.  Jesus was not an Illegal Alien having crossed an international border; though Jesus, Joseph and Mary did go into Egypt for a short time to escape the murder of the innocents by the Jewish King Herod.   However, once Herod died and it was safe, they came back to Israel, their homeland. 

It is ironic that Dizzy Pelosi would attempt to use a religious analogy to make the case for refugee status for the thousands of Illegal Alien children that have crossed our border with Mexico without their parents.   Mary was with Jesus to the day he was crucified on the cross and never abandoned him during his lifetime.   It was Mary who went looking for young Jesus when he was preaching at the temple.  This Blogger does not see any connection with Jesus and these Illegal Alien children. 

What I do see is Socialist Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, who claims to be a Roman Catholic; but supports the unrestricted right to abortion, which results in the murder of innocent children; about 50 million since Roe V Wade that legalized abortion.  Pelosi claiming Christian values wants to give refugee status to these Illegal Alien children at the same time that she supports the murder of innocent babies.  Go figure.      

Polarization In America - The Great Divide

There has always be Us and Them in America; but Socialist President Pinocchio Obama and his Socialist pals in Congress has divided our country like no other time since the Civil War and it is very dangerous.   Socialists have come to realize that they can only win elections by creating greater polarization in our country because otherwise their Socialist Schemes have been such a failure that they simply can't run for office on their record. 

So, Socialists continue to practice Class Warfare to divide our country along class lines defining those of us who are successful as greedy and evil, rather than the roll models and job creators that we truly are.  Socialists also demonize those of us that cling to our guns, religion and family values as somehow out of the mainstream.   The Socialists also claim it is unpatriotic if the 50% of us that pay all the income taxes in our country complain about the confiscation of our hard earned money by a power elite in Washington DC and State Capitals because they continue to use our money to win elections so that they can continue feeding at the trough.  

The Socialists also say that when we argue for a balanced budget to avoid the economic collapse of the United States that we are "racist" because presumably it would mean denying benefits to their able bodied PEEP's on the dole.  Finally, when we push back on the Gestapo tactics of the IRS, the EPA, the Justice Department and Homeland Security to preserve our freedoms, arguing for limited government in keeping with our Constitution, the Socialists describe us gun carrying, subversives to be feared and targeted by government.

Abraham Lincoln once said that a nation divided against itself cannot stand.  Lincoln further went on to say that danger and threats to our country would not come from foreign shores; but rather from within our nation.  It is amazing how prophetic Lincoln was in these pronouncements.  So today as a result of the divide created by Socialists to win elections, we have a President and a Congress that simply cannot work together to get important things done.   This divide is so great that this Blogger has even determined that we have no interest in being friends with anyone that does not share our values.  As such, we ended a relationship with neighbors in the last election that supported Obama.  It is just too hard to be friends with left wing Socialists and why bother anyway.  We have nothing in common. 

Socialist President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Dirty Harry Reid of Nevada will not allow common sense bills enacted by the Republican House of Representatives, many with bi-partisan support, to even come up for a vote in the Senate.  There are at least 40 bills passed by the House that would create jobs.   We could also have comprehensive Immigration Reform, if and only if, the Socialists would agree to secure the border first and abide by the laws already on the books.  But none of these things will happen because of the polarization caused by Obama and the his Socialist pals at all levels of government.  This is all very dangerous to our country.

Obama Will By-Pass Congress To Grant Amnesty To Illegal Aliens

Socialist President Pinocchio Obama is under enormous pressure from his PEEP's, which include the Illegal Alien Lobby, to use his Pen and Telephone to grant Amnesty to as many as 9 million Illegal Aliens.   In complete disregard of the law, Obama will probably start with about 4 million Illegal Aliens that have American born children and then use other excuses to get to all the other Illegal Aliens in the United States.  This is happening as Illegal Aliens, who should be arrested and deported, actually protest in front of the White House demanding Amnesty.

The rule of law has completely broken down under this lawless President at the same time that our border with Mexico has collapsed. as a result of Obama's intentional actions or inaction's.  While the IRS, Homeland Security, the Justice Department and the EPA Gestapos target law abiding Americans born in the United States, Obamanistas are doing everything they can to open our borders to Illegal Aliens granting them legal status.   What the hell is going on. 

If Obama does these things, it should be grounds for impeachment and or significant court challenges.   The House of Representatives should act to preserve the rule of law by filing Impeachment Proceeding if Obama continues to ignore the laws on the books.   Presumably, Republican Governors should file a Class Action Lawsuit against the President because he is impacting their state budgets by allowing Illegal Aliens into our country.  These Governors, representing the taxpayers in their states, most definitely have standing.

We could argue what should be included in Comprehensive Immigration Reform, which this Blogger supports, but the notion of Presidential usurpation of power is in violation of our Constitution and must be stopped.   And, this would be true whether it is Obama, or any other President.   The American people are losing our freedoms and our country.   We must stand up and say ENOUGH.

Stupid In America - Common Sense Is Dead

Common Sense in America is dead.  Instead, we see Stupid In America on a daily basis.  Let me count the ways:

1.  The Veteran Affairs Medical system fails to provide timely medical services for VETS and many die.  Administrators were caught cooking the books to steal bonuses from the American taxpayer.   Instead of firing and prosecuting these crooks and privatizing Veterans Affairs medical facilities, which is what should happen, both Republicans and Socialists will soon provide even more money to Veterans Affairs to grow government even bigger.  It does not get any dumber. 

2.  The United States spends more money on public education than any other country in the world; yet student achievement is below most other industrialized nations.  Instead of implementing reforms that would actually improve public education, the solution is always throwing more money at the problem to grow government bigger.

3.  The IRS and the Justice Department are now extensions of Obama's political apparatus targeting Conservatives, those of faith and anyone who opposes Obama's Socialist Schemes.   Instead of these people being fired and prosecuted, they get promoted, or allowed to retire to collect hefty pensions. 

4. The NSA and Homeland Security are spying on all Americans in the name of fighting Terrorism.  While we lose our freedoms, Terrorists organizations are alive and well and growing around the world. 

5. Our border with Mexico has collapsed.  Illegal Aliens are now referred to as "Refugees" from countries with lots of crime.  At the same time, the streets of Chicago and other inner cities in the US are a war zones as murders occur everyday.

6.  Our soon to be $18 Trillion National Debt grows with no end in sight.  This will lead to the economic collapse of the United States and civil strife on our streets.  This is the reason why Homeland Security and our city police departments are now paramilitary units preparing for the violence that will surely come when the those on the dole stop getting their checks. 

7. Medicare and Social Security are going bankrupt.  ObamaCare is unsustainable and will surely collapse as well; yet Socialists in Congress go on business as usual. 

8.  American companies are leaving the United States because the combined federal and state corporate income tax rate is often above 40%.  These companies are voting with their feet when they move to Ireland and other countries and pay 5% to 20%.  Well dah!

These are just a few examples of Stupid In America.  There is so much fraud, waste, abuse, corruption, incompetence and redundency in government that this Blogger could go on and on describing the death of Common Sense in America.   How on earth could we let these things happen.  We really do need to take back our country to end Stupid In America. 

Israel & Islamic Radicals - No Moral Equivalency

Israel has been fighting for its very existence since it was founded in 1948.  Israel, a pluralistic democracy, is home to about 7 million Jews, Christians,  Muslim Arabs and people of other faiths, or no faith at all.   As a result, there are Jewish Temples, Christian Churches and Muslim Mosques all over Israel as people practice their religions freely.   With the exception of Egypt and Jordon, other Arab countries in the Middle East and Iran, that control all the other land in the Middle East, do not accept Israel's right to exist as a nation, on a tiny strip of land that is not as big as the smallest states in the US. 

Palestinians are already part of Arab countries called Jordon and Egypt, which should take control of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip to end the Arab-Israeli crisis, once and for all and bring both peace and cooperative economic development to the region because the Palestinians continue to prove that they cannot govern themselves.  This is the only solution that the international community, including the United States, should be trying to negotiate and accomplish.  Instead, Israel faces Hamas and Hezbollah, Terrorist organizations on its borders, supported by Iran, committed to the destruction of Israel.  It is the Islamic Radicals in the Arab world and Iran, that want to destroy Israel, that continue to prolong this battle, by arming the Terrorists, rather than seeking peace.  There will never be peace as long as this continues. 

It is important to recognize that these Islamic Radical countries have no religious, or personal freedom in their countries.   Any remaining Christians and Jews in those countries are persecuted and even murdered.  They should be given refugee status by Western countries so that they can leave. The Terrorists in Iraq have given Christians in the territory they now control four choices; convert to Islam, pay a tax, leave, or die.  These are Christians that have lived in the Middle East for 1,900 years and Jews that lived there for 5,000 years long before Islam ever existed.   Terrorists in Iraq and North Africa are destroying Christian churches.   It is illegal to practice Christianity, or Judaism in many of these Islamic countries, including those that are supposed to be allies to the US.

As Israel fights for its very existence, it is important for all peoples of the world to recognize that there is NO MORAL EQUIVALENCY between Israel and Islamic Radicals around the world.  These fanatics are attempting to create an Islamic Radical Caliphate in the Middle East and around the world that threatens our freedom.  Destruction of Israel is part of their plan.   We can't let that happen.

Nevada Public Education Ranks Poorly Compared To Other States

The state of Nevada public education system ranked poorly in the most recent Anne B. Casey Foundation Study compared to other states related to a variety of criteria.  This study has been conducted for the past 25 years.   40% of Nevada's students did not graduate from high school in 2012, which is double the National Average. Nevada also had the lowest number of kids attending Pre-School at 30% compared with 46%, which is the National Average.  Since this Blogger lives in Nevada and as a former public school teacher, naturally I am concerned.  These numbers are bad; but even some states like California that spend a lot more money on education are not wonderful either.  

The solution we always hear from Teacher Unions and their Socialists supporters is that we need to spend more money on public education when in fact, the United States spends more on public education that any other industrialized nation in the world; yet it is not reflected in student achievement.  This very moment, the Teacher Union in Nevada is pushing a Margins Tax on businesses, supposedly to benefit education, that will be a job killer.  If it was proposed with necessary reforms, this Blogger might be a supporter; but since it is business as usual, I am opposed.  As a former public school teacher and someone with a Master's Degree in Education Administration, who spent six years teaching at the junior, senior and adult school levels in the Los Angles City School system, I know that student achievement is not about more money, or even class size.   

Look, kids need decent facilities, great teachers and books and other materials to learn.  It is that simple.  Computers may be helpful, as long as they are not a substitute for rote learning.  Common Core, the latest Socialist Scheme to improve public education, has nothing to do with learning.  It is all about imposing standardized politically correct, Socialist ideology in our schools and as such will fail.   And, what kids don't need is three levels of education bureaucracy at the federal, state and county levels wasting everybody's time and taxpayer dollars.   The Education Establishment, like all big government, is plagued by waste, fraud, abuse and redundancy, which is the reason despite spending billions on education has little impact. 

Public Education should be run by local school boards and parents, not bureaucrats from hundreds, or thousands of miles away.  To improve public education, we need real reform and administrators with the power to actually manage our schools like any other business, which includes the power to hire and fire.   Further, kids that are constantly disruptive should be put in special schools to prevent them from taking time away from learning.  Sorry, it may not be politically correct, but I have been there and I know that this is a major problem.

Collective bargaining has to go.   Even Socialist President Franklin Roosevelt was against collective bargaining for public employees.  Public Schools, like all government employment, should be governed by a Civil Service Commission with the power to make the rules in the interest of children as their only concern.  The rise of teacher unions has coincided with the poor results we see in many public schools.  To deny the correlation is to deny facts.  Collective bargaining works for the union bosses; but it does not work for kids.  As a young teacher, I was forced by the Union to submit mediocre objectives for my evaluation because the Union did not want teachers held to a higher standard.  I know, I was there.  Teacher Tenure has to go, as well, so that bad teachers can more easily be fired in accordance with fair evaluation procedures.  This is the reason there is a Class Action Lawsuit working its way through the courts in California alleging that Teacher Tenure is harming children.  I saw it with my own eyes.  There were incompetent teachers that should have been fired; but the process was so arduous that Administrators would not take the time to battle the bureaucracy and Union to get it done. 

We need Merit Pay for teachers, opposed by Teacher Unions, to reward really good teachers based on sound evaluation methods.   Why on earth should a poor teacher make the same money as a great teacher.  From what I saw when I was teaching, given the same years of service, there were about 25% of really outstanding teachers making the same money as teachers that were incompetent.  This makes no sense.   We need School Choice for parents and kids in failing public schools to create competition for eduction dollars.  To hold those kids prisoner in these schools is outrageous.   These children should have the same opportunity as the rich, including the Obama's and most members of Congress to send their kids to private schools, when the public schools in their areas are poor. 

There should be more public and private charter and magnet schools run by independent boards of directors and involved parents.  We also need more vocational education and apprenticeships for kids who are not college bound so they can graduate with a marketable job skill.  Unless and until we see the reforms indicated, we will not see the quality of education improve.  Just throwing more money at a system that often produces poor results will not improve the quality of education, whether in Nevada, or any other state.

ObamaCare Could Now Face An Ugly Death

The Socialists in Congress rammed through ObamaCare without one single Republican, or reading  reading the bill.  Remember, ditz Socialist Nancy Pelosi said they had to pass the bill to know what is in it.   While now we know what is in ObamaCare.  A particular provision has come back to haunt the Socialists.   There was an assumption that all states would set up Exchanges as the only vehicle through which premium subsidies could flow.   Only 14 states set up Exchanges, while 36 states did not.  The language in the bill is very clear.   Subsidies going to Americans in the 36 states with no Exchanges that used the Federal Exchange to buy ObamaCare are illegal.  One federal court ruled against Obama, while another ruled in favor of Obama.  This means that this case will go to the Supreme Court for final resolution. 

It will all boil down to Chief Justice John Roberts.   The four Conservative Justices on the Supreme Court will rule against Obama because the language is clear.   Roberts will again decide this case.  If the Supreme Court rules these Subsidies provided in the 36 states without Exchanges are illegal, it will be end of ObamaCare because the Republican led House of Representatives will never vote to change this provision. 

This would mean that the 90% of Americans that got Subsidies through ObamaCare will not receive them going forward.   If that happens, they will not be able to afford the skyrocketing medical premiums and ObamaCare will die.  Let us hope that Chief Justice John Roberts votes right this time around.   History is watching Roberts.  His legacy is on the line.

Republican Businessman Outsider Beats 11 Term Congressman in Georgia

Outsider Businessman David Perdue, former CEO of Reebok, Dollar General and Pillowtex, beat 11 term Congressman Insider Jack Kingston in the Republican Primary for the US Senate Seat.  This was a major defeat for Establishment Republicans that were solidly behind Kingston, who really is a pretty good and Conservative guy.   However this was another anti-incumbent vote by Conservatives in a Republican Primary. 

Kingston will support Perdue in the November election as he faces Michelle Nunn, the Socialist candidate and daughter of former Socialist Senator Sam Nunn.  This is probably going to be a very close election in Georgia and one that Socialists are hoping will go their way to counter all the losses they are likely to face in November in Red States.

Socialists need Georgia to have any hope of retaining the Senate in 2014.  This means that all Conservatives need to donate money to the Perdue campaign because you can bet that the Unions and big Socialist donors will pour millions of dollars into Georgia to help win this election for Michelle Nunn.   We can't let that happen. 

Most important, Conservatives must support, David Purdue, this businessman outsider.  This means fundraisers should take place all over the country to insure a Republican win in Georgia.  We can make this happen.  Let's do it.

Governor Perry Sends In The Texas National Guard

Since Socialist President Pinocchio Obama refuses to secure the border, Governor Rick Perry of Texas is sending in a thousand troops from the National Guard, under his control, to the Texas border.  It good to see that the Governor recognizes the national security threat we face on our border, even if the President is missing in action.  While this will cost the state of Texas $12 million a month, it is money well spent, since several hundred thousand crimes have been committed in Texas by illegal aliens.  

Illegal Aliens cost all states, where they end up, billions of dollars for education, welfare, medical care and the cost related to arrest and our penal system.  Our prisons are full of illegal aliens that have committed serious crimes.  It is a blatant Socialist lie to say that illegal aliens pay taxes to cover all these services, since Illegal Aliens are in the 50% of other Americans that pay no income taxes at all.  

Republican Governors Susanna Martinez of New Mexico and Jan Brewer from Arizona should send in the National Guard to the border in their states, as well.  Of course, it would be great if Socialist Governor Moonbeam Jerry Brown of California would do the same; but that is not going to happen.  Since most of the illegal aliens, drug smugglers and Terrorists come into our country through Texas, New Mexico and Arizona, shutting down the border in those states will help stem the tide.   However, this is just a band aide because Illegal Aliens arrested will just be released by Obamanistas, pending court hearings that they never show up for.  It is all just an Obama Game that the American people are losing. 

WE NEED TO SECURE OUR BORDER.  The United States cannot take in all of these people requiring services at taxpayer expense.   Our National Debt is nearly $18 Trillion with no end in sight.  Our country is going bankrupt.  At the same time Obama is spending billions to take care of Illegal Aliens, he is gutting our military, which is a clear and present danger to our nation and our people.  It all has to stop.

Obama On Ukraine - More Yada, Yada, Yada

Weakling Socialist President Pinocchio Obama should have just slept in rather than come out and make another feckless statement on the Russian Aggression in the Ukraine.  It was just more Yada, Yada, Yada and no actions designed to deter Russian Aggression against the Ukraine.  It is important for all to recognize that when the Ukraine gave up the nuclear weapons that were based on their territory, Russia signed a non-aggression pact guaranteeing Ukraine their national sovereignty.  So much for that worthless piece of paper that went up in smoke when Russian Dictator Vladamir Putin took control of the Crimea and now has Russians running the war in the Ukraine. 

In the mean time, Obama does nothing to prevent Putin from pursing his goal to recreate a greater Russia that includes the former surrounding Soviet states some of which are now part of NATO.  What Obama does not seem to understand is that Russian Dictators, be they Communists or Czars have pursued a Greater Russia for centuries.  If Obama had learned the lessons of history and economics when he was smoking dope at university, perhaps he would know that this is an old story.  It was Putin who said the worse day in Russian history was when the old Soviet Union fell apart.  Since Putin was head of the old KGB Secret Police in the Soviet Union, he longs for the good old days at the expense of freedom in surrounding countries.  

Just implementing minimal sanctions that prevent Russian Vodka, Caviar and Marushka Dolls, about the only things, other than oil and gas that come from Russia that have any value, from entering the United States will not deter Putin from pursing his expansionist goals.   Ronald Reagan called the old Soviet Union, the "evil empire" much to the chagrin and criticism of Socialists in Western countries at the time; but Reagan new evil when he saw it.  What we are seeing once again with Putin is evil and if nothing else Obama needs to properly call a spade a spade, instead of using weak, meaningless diplomatic speak. 

But Obama also needs to do more to deter Putin's aggression.  Since European countries are held hostage by their need for natural gas from Russia, as was once predicted would be the case, by the Iron Lady Margaret Thacher of Britain when those deals came down, Obama needs to act and soon because the Europeans won't.  While we don't need to send troops to Ukraine, they should be given the weapons they need to to defend their nation.  Obama needs to immediately authorize a missile defense system and ring around Russia in Poland, the Czech Republic and maybe even the Baltic States that he unilaterally ended when he became President without getting anything in return from the Russians.

Finally, we need to bolster the military of all NATO countries, in particular; but perhaps others surrounding Russia by giving, or selling them advanced defensive weapons, aircraft and tanks to deter Russian Aggression.  It is very clear that a policy of containment concerning Russia is as warranted today as it was when the old Soviet Union existed.  Russian Dictators only understand Peace Through Strength.  Look to history for our model.  Weakness never buys peace and always results in eventual war.  Obama needs to practice his Chicago politics overseas.  If the other guy brings out a knife, we better bring out a bigger gun.

The War On White Men, Married Women & Traditional Families

Have you noticed that Socialists and the lame stream, left wing media always seem to portray White Men as either rich, evil and greedy, or really stupid.  White men are always the brunt of jokes on many comedy shows focused on hooking up for unmarried sex and all sorts of non-traditional relationships.   Married women are rarely portrayed in the media as stay at home Mom's in business to nurture children.  In fact, those Mom's are often viewed as less than smart because they are not pursuing a career by putting their kids in full time child care.  And, then there is the "Modern Family" that usually involves divorces and resultant combined families, Gay relationships, or otherwise dysfunctional families.  It is very rare to see a traditional family with a loving Mom and a Dad supporting their children.  Somehow when we do see a traditional family on TV, it is made to look abnormal. 

Clearly, there is a War On White Men, Married Women and Traditional Families, not to mention those of us that cling to our guns, religion and moral values.   The reason Socialists and the lame stream, left wing media have declared war on these groups is because they happen to vote for Conservative Republicans who are very often Pro-Life.   Well dah!  This Blogger is not delusional.  As someone who has been around the block a few times, I am well aware that rich, evil, greedy and stupid people come in all colors.   I also have no problem with married women who choose to work, or not to work as a life choice. 

My 93 year old mother, who was married for more than 55 years until my Dad passed away, worked six days a week to help support our family her whole adult life, until she finally retired at 65.  She actually was and still is a great role model for me.   I know that the Obama economy makes it almost impossible for a Mom to stay home and care for her children because with Middle Incomes falling, it requires two incomes to survive.  I don't even have a problem with the Modern Family, or Gay Relationships; though it is very probable that dysfunctional families, those involving alcohol or drug abuse are never good for children.   

While I as a Conservative Republican am not at war with anyone, though I do believe that  Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion mill, responsible for more than 350,000 abortions a year is evil, Socialists and the left wing, lame steam media are at war with me, a White Man, who owns a global company, who has been married for 40 years to a White Woman, who stayed home to care for our sons in a traditional family relationship.   We also cling to our guns, religion and moral values, which Socialists just hate.  Socialists win elections by dividing our nation; hence their war on White Men, Married Women and Traditional Families.   Sadly, since Socialists will lie, cheat, steal, borrow, extort and history teaches us even murder to stay in power feeding at the trough, it is what it is.  

Iran, Russia & Terrorists Playing Obama For A Sucker

Tyrants, Dictators and Terrorists around the world know that any red line in the sand drawn by Socialist President Pinocchio Obama is meaningless.  Obama did it again.   Iran has been given a four month extension and $2.8 Billion in freed assets to continue negotiations along a road to nowhere.   Iran continues to enrich uranium that they need to develop nuclear weapons with no end in sight.  Once they have the bombs and the missiles to deliver them, the negotiations will end.  That day is coming.   At that point, Western countries will have to accept a nuclear Iran, or implement all out war to stop it.  Four months from now, negotiations will break down.   When it happens, weak and incompetent Obama, will just impose more sanctions that will not stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons.  

The next President will either have to act to destroy Iran's nuclear capability, or impose a policy of containment, which may not be acceptable to Israel, our only real ally in the Middle East.   If containment becomes the only policy option, it will set off a nuclear arms race in the Middle East that will surely end in nuclear war.   The fanatical mullah's that run Iran are looking forward to Armageddon because they believe their Mufti will return when it occurs.  So the old concept of Mutually Assured Destruction is not relevant to them.   They want to destroy Israel even if it means they will be destroyed in the process. 

We are entering a new Cold War with Russia, except that naive Obama is too stupid to see it.  Generally, this Blogger has given Obama the benefit of the doubt related to his intelligence; but his Socialist ideology and lack of knowledge about history and economics and failure to learn the lessons of history makes him stupid.  Dictator Vladamir Putin is determined to create a Greater Russia just like his Communist Predecessors and Czars did before him.   The battle going on in Ukraine is just the beginning.  Putin wants all the former Soviet states back and he will do what he has to do to make it happen.  

The Baltic countries and countries like Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary are now part of NATO, which would put Russia and the United States in direct confrontation if Putin does anything to move on those countries.  Obama needs to make that impossible by providing sophisticated weapons to all these countries and the Ukraine, including the missile defense system in Poland and the Czech Republic, that he unilaterally eliminated without getting anything from the Russians in return.  Further, there is not one American tank still left in Europe.   The tanks need to go back in whether manned by Americans or Europeans. 

Finally, Terrorism is on the rise all over the world.  Obama is giving Israel tepid support in its battle with Hamas, a Terrorist organization.   The fact is that Israel must destroy both Hamas and Hezbollah on its borders, to protect their country, the same way we must destroy the Cartels in Mexico that are a threat to our National Security.  Al Queda is alive and well in North Africa, the Middle East and other countries in the world.  The Terrorists in Iraq, attempting to create a Caliphate across the Middle East and beyond, are thumbing their nose at Obama.  In all, Iran, Russia and Terrorists around the world are playing Obama for a sucker.  What is particularly dangerous is that Obama is too stupid and naive to see it.   The United States and our allies face new dangers that have we have not seen since the old Soviet Union existed thanks to Obama's feckless foreign policy.   We need Ronald Reagan's strategy of Peace Through Strength, not Obama approach of Leading From Behind, which is a clear and present danger to our nation.

Israel - The Right Of Self Defense

This Blogger recently happened to see a bunch of young people protesting Israeli military action in Gaza.  They carried posters saying Stop Killing Innocent People In Gaza.   The reality is that those "innocent people" support Hamas, that governs them.  Hamas is a Terrorist Organization supported by Iran.  It is  important to realize that Israel pulled out of Gaza several years ago, which involved bull dozing several Israeli Settlements.  They did so in the hope that it would buy peace.  What they got in return was control by Hamas and thousands of rockets fired at their cities every year since then.  So far, only a few Israeli's have been killed thanks to their Iron Dome Missile Defense System; but if not for that system thousands of innocent Israeli Civilians would be dead today.

How long can any country stand for rockets being fired on their cities.  You can bet that if this was happening to the United States, we would take quick and decisive military action to stop it.  The lame stream left wing media in many countries condemns Israel for defending their nation.  Just imagine if one of those rockets were to hit a left wing media outlet building and their people were killed.  I suspect it would be a very different story. 

This Blogger has been to Israel.  The Israeli's, which include Jews, Moslem's, Christians and probably atheists have built a remarkable, democratic country in the midst of Middle East chaos.   Western countries have given the Palestinians billions of dollars to buy peace, much of which has ended up in Swiss bank accounts.  Corruption in Arab countries and the Palestinian Territory, including Gaza, is rampant, which prevents economic development.   I saw the third world conditions with my own eyes when we "crossed the border" into the Palestinian Territory to go to Bethlehem to visit the church where Jesus was born.

Israel has every right to defend their country.   If Palestinians wanted peace, they could have it tomorrow.  Disputes over a few feet of land, one way or another, are not an excuse to continue the attack on Israel.  It is also very possible that Jerusalem could become the capital of both Israel and Palestine under the right agreement and circumstances.  Of course, all countries must accept Israel's right to exist as a condition of any peace agreement to normalize relations in the Middle East.  Since both most Arab countries and Iran, that is building nuclear weapons, do not accept Israel's right to exist and even threaten the Jewish people with annihilation; a constant state of war has existed since Israel was founded in 1948.  Until this changes about the best we can hope for is a Cold War in the Middle East.  In the mean time, Israel must do what it has to do to keep their citizens safe.  What else can they do?

Obama Gutting US Military As Threats Grow

Socialist President Pinocchio Obama and his pals in the Congress are gutting the US Military to levels not seen since the end of World Wars I & II to fund all their Socialist Schemes and programs for their PEEP's.  Obama's clear goal is to weaken our nation.  While Obama attends fundraisers, the world is literally exploding as we face new threats everyday.   Terrorists are gaining control in North Africa.  Israel and the Middle East are in a state of war.  Russian Dictator Vladamir Putin, the former head of the KGB in the old Soviet Union, is attempting to recreate a greater Russia taking over the countries on Russia's border.  As a result, we have war in the Ukraine in the heart of Europe.  And, China is threatening all of its neighbors, including Japan, related to claims on islands that belong to other countries in Asia.  Finally, we have lost control of our border with Mexico as daily we face an invasion from the South. 

Despite this accurate picture, Obamanistas claim that the world has never been more "tranquil" as a result of Obama's lead from behind foreign policy.   These people in the White House must be smoking dope because no one with a working brain could possibly assert that we are safer today then when George W Bush was President.  What we need is Ronald Reagan's Peace Through Strenght policy to make certain that we have peace.  Obama has created a vacuum.  When the US is weak, Terrorists, Dictators and Tyrants fill the vacuum, which is exactly what is happening around the world. 

It is time for Obama to man up if that is even possible with this incompetent President.  First, we must put the missile defense system, that Obama unilaterally stopped, back into Poland and the Czech Republic.   We must make it clear to Iran that we will bomb their nuclear facilities if they don't stop developing nuclear weapons, since the negotiations under way are a road to no where.   We simply cannot allow Iran, that regularly funds Terrorists around the world, to develop nuclear weapons.  We must do what we can to stop the Terrorists in Iraq and Syria from taking over those countries, including using air power to destroy them.  We must become energy independent to support Europe held hostage by Russia.   WE HAVE TO SECURE OUR BORDER TO STOP TERRORISTS AND ILLEGAL ALIENS FROM ENTERING OUR COUNTRY EVEN IF IT MEANS PUTTING THE US ARMY ON THE BORDER AND INTO MEXICO.  Finally, we must restore monies to our military to make certain we have a military second to none. 

Of course, none of these things will happen as long as Obama is in office and the Socialists control any branch of government.   The end result is that the United States and our allies are in terrible danger.  Sadly, many Americans may have to die, as a result of Terrorist attacks around the world and we will have to wait until we have a strong President again to rebuild our military to protect our nation.   This is Jimmy Carter II.  Let us hope that we elect another Ronald Reagan in 2016.  If not, we will continue to see wars around the world that must eventually involve the United States.   We have seen this story many times before in history.  Those who fail to learn the lessons of history are destined to experience the same misery again.  It is what it is.

Senator Dirty Harry Reid Suffering From Senile Dementia

Everybody in the country knows that Socialist Senator Dirty Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader, suffers from foot in mouth disease.   We also know that Socialists will lie, cheat, steal, borrow, extort and history teaches us even murder to stay in power feeding at the trough.  Reid is  no exception to this rule.  And, it has been rumored for years that Dirty Harry has had a series of mini-strokes, which may very well have turned off the part of his brain that controls his mouth.  But, the latest pronouncements by Dirty Harry are proof that this old geezer is suffering from Senile Dementia.

Senator Dirty Harry Reid recently said emphatically that, "The Border Is Secure".   That has to be the most ridiculous lie coming out of a Socialist's mouth in American history, of many things said everyday.  More than 60,000 unaccompanied children and other illegal aliens have crossed our border this year with more on the way.  They are just turning themselves in as they cross the Rio Grand River in rafts.  That does not includes the hundreds of thousands of other adults, drug smugglers and Terrorists that are crossing our border with Mexico every year.  In making the statement that the Border Is Secure, it is pretty obvious that Senator Dirty Harry Reid has completely lost his mind and is suffering from Senile Dementia.

But, it gets worse.  Senator Dirty Harry Reid also said that the 5 White Men of the Supreme Court, in their ruling concerning the Hobby Lobby Case, are denying women their Birth Control Pills.  First of all, the last time Justice Thomas looked in the mirror, I am sure it was obvious to him that he is Black, not White, if it matters at all.  And, by the way, it was 5 White Men that handed down the Roe V Wade decision that has resulted in 50 million abortions to date.  We never hear anything about those White Justices.  Second, the Hobby Lobby decision did nothing to deny any woman her birth control pills.  The Hobby Lobby case allowed a privately owned company the right to cease paying for four pills, or medical devices that induce abortion, out of 20 contraceptives required by ObamaCare.  This case was about First Amendment Religious Freedom and in no way had anything to do with providing Birth Control Pills as part of Hobby Lobby's medical insurance coverage.  Hobby Lobby was and is providing medical insurance coverage that allows for 16 different Birth Control Pills.  So all of this is just another big Socialist Lie designed to get their PEEP's to the polls. 

We don't have a Do Nothing Congress, we have a Do Nothing Senate because Senator Dirty Harry Reid refuses to allow bipartisan bills, enacted by the Republican led House of Representatives, to even come to the floor for a vote.  Dirty Harry likes to brag that he was a prize fighter when he was young.  Well yah, it is clear that Dirty Harry got punched in the head one too many times.  Reid is either an idiot or a moron, which ever is dumber, who is becoming a real embarrassment to the Socialist Party.   Unfortunately, unless Reid is carried out of the Senate, he is not going anyway because his position in the Senate is the source of their crooked family wealth.   Or, just maybe New York Senator Chuckie Schumer, who wants to be Senate Majority Leader, will get the long knives out to depose Reid.   Certainly, if the Socialists lose the Senate in 2014, Schumer will use the occasion to push Reid aside if common sense prevails.   Otherwise, expect more stupid statements from Dirty Harry Reid.   In his defense, the man has lost his mind.

Socialist's War On The Middle Class

This Blogger really detests Socialist's Class Warfare arguments because it intentionally divides our country; but the fact is that the Socialists are waging a war on the Middle Class in America.  Socialist President Pinocchio Obama has made a mess of our economy and it is really hurting the Middle Class most.   Wall Street is doing fine because of cheap money, but Main Street is bleeding.  Higher taxes and more regulations, by Obama's Executive Orders, are destroying jobs and Middle Class income.  In fact, in real terms the Middle Class is earning less today than when George W. Bush was President because many jobs have been pushed overseas by higher taxes and more regulations.  The reality is that we have more than 10 million Americans that have just given up looking for work altogether because there are no good paying jobs available for them; hence the lowest labor participation rate in three decades at around 62%.

Higher cost for medical insurance, as a result of ObamaCare and for food and energy because of EPA regulations are killing the Middle Class.  Obama, always out on the campaign trail, is pitching raising the minimum wage, as the solution to Middle Class problems.  But, this will not benefit the Middle Class at all since they typically earn more than minimum wage.   The Republican led House of Representatives has enacted more than 40 bills designed to create jobs and help the Middle Class.  Even though many of those bills have bipartisan support, Socialist Senator Dirty Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader, will not even allow those bills to come up for a vote.

Since Socialists have really hurt the Middle Class, they are attempting to create a different narrative to scare their PEEP's to the polls in 2014 and 2016.   Dizzy Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Big Mouth Dirty Harry Reid claim Republicans want to take birth control away from women as part of the War on Women.  Of course, this is ridiculous.  And then, Socialists claim that any criticism of Obama, one of the most incompetent Presidents in American history, is all about racism.   Again ridiculous. 

How does allowing thousands of illegal alien children from Latin America into our country help the Middle Class in America.  Socialist claim they are refugees fleeing danger in Central America.   Really.  What about the danger to Black American kids being shot in Chicago and other inner cities of our country.  Maybe those kids should flee to Canada for safety.  The Middle Class is suffering because of failed Obamanista policies that are killing jobs.  It really is that simple.   All of the other issues highlighted by Socialists are a smoke screen designed to avoid any discussion of Obama's many failures.  It is what it is.

Taking Back Our Country - Not About Racism

Proven Liar Attorney General Eric Holder recently said that some of us that want to take back our country dislike him and Socialist President Pinocchio Obama because they are Black.  If there are racists in the United States that dislike Holder and Obama just because of their skin color and nothing else, then they are doubly ignorant because there are so many Obama failed policies and Scandals that should be the basis for counting the days until Obama and Holder are out of office.  No, those of us that want to take back our country see Socialists and Communists in government, the left wing lame stream media and Academia, most of whom are White, that hate free market capitalism, our Constitution, as written, and individual freedom.   These little dictators want to control all aspects of daily life in their attempts to confiscate our hard earned income and limit our freedoms. 

Conservatives in particular are standing up and saying ENOUGH.  We are interested in pushing back 100 years of Big Government Socialist Creep that is both bankrupting and destroying our country.  Barack Obama, as an obvious Socialist, is just the extreme culmination of this process.  And so, our opposition to Obama, contrary to Holder's assertion, has nothing to do with their skin color, or racism.  It is all about Stupid In America that comes from the waste, fraud, abuse and redundancy that exists in all levels of Big Government.

Obamanistas play the race card to divide our nation in order to motivate their PEEP's to go to the polls because they have made such a mess of our economy and our foreign policy that they must create a different narrative; i.e. Racism and the "War On Women" neither of which have any basis in fact.  ObamaCare, based on lie after lie and smoke and mirrors related to the numbers, is a train wreck that continues to get worse by the day.  Since the Obama economy is so bad, millions of Americans have just given up looking for work, which is why the labor participation rate, at about 62%, is the lowest in three decades.   Black unemployment in particular is double the national average.  There are more Americans on Food Stamps and Welfare, at about 50 million and on Disability Benefits at more than 10 million, than at any time in American History.  Our Gross Domestic Product Growth, if any, is dismal.  The Middle East is exploding because of Obama's feckless foreign policy, which will impact energy prices.  And, our border with Mexico has collapsed because Obama refuses to enforce current immigration laws on the books.  This is all happening despite all the new taxes and defict spending, by Obamanistas, contributing to our nearly $18 Trillion National Debt. 

We have experienced numerous Scandals; Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS Dirty Tricks and the NSA spying on all Americans.  The EPA, as one of Obama's Gestapos, continues to destroy jobs and whole industries.  Obama refuses to approve the Keystone Pipeline that would not only create thousands of jobs, it would help make the US energy independent, which is more critical than ever.  Obama has been over ruled by the courts more than 20 times for Executive Order over reach.  This is the picture of America almost six years into the Obama Presidency.   What does any of this have to do with Racism.  Obama will go down as one of the worst Presidents in American history, not because he is half Black; but because he is a very poor and divisive leader, who will leave behind a mess for the next President to fix.  Sorry Liar Holder, it is what it is, no matter what you say.

P.S.  Attorney General Eric Holder has been held in Contempt of Congress for his lies before them.  This is shameful for the top law enforcement officer in the nation.  Again, this has nothing to do with Holder's race; but rather his integrity, which has nothing to do with his skin color.

Crony Capitalism - The Real Story

The annual Gross Domestic Product of the United States, the combined total of all goods and services sold in the US, is currently about $15.68 Trillion.   Local, State and Federal Government spending today represents about 40% of annual GDP, or over $6 Trillion of this amount.   As a result, Crony Capitalism is unavoidable and a real problem.   Many publicly traded companies get billions of dollars each year in revenues from government spending.   Since these larger companies live quarter to quarter and senior management huge bonuses are often predicated on short term results, it is easy to see why these corporate CEO's of both political parties support government largess.  And, many smaller, privately owned companies need government spending just to stay in business.    This is also the reason why the US Chamber of Commerce supports Establishment Republicans that will keep the pork coming even if in means bankrupting our country and eventually causing the economic collapse of the United States.

The problem is that government spending happens as a result of higher and higher taxes, which in the end is a job killer. Cards talk and numbers don't lie.   We have about 50 million Americans on Welfare and Food Stamps,the highest number in our history and the lowest labor participation rate in three decades even though total government spending has never been higher.   And, government spending always involves waste, fraud, abuse and redundancy so it is not the best way to use the resources in our country.   Private citizens spending their own money always do it more wisely than government ever will.  There is a place for lower government spending perhaps at no more than 25 - 30% of GDP, which is traditional.  That would mean that federal government spending would need to shrink from the current 25% of GDP to no more than 17 - 20% to get optimum economic results, while dealing with our national defense and providing a reasonable social safety net for those who simply cannot care for themselves because they are mentally, or physically unable to do so.  

In any case, government regularly picks winners and losers every year by giving business to many companies in the US, so Crony Capitalism by definition is all around us.  Koch Industries and the Koch Brothers, who Socialists love to demonize, own Georgia Pacific, one of the largest producers of paper products, including toilet paper.  The Koch Brother's, who own one of the largest privately owned companies in the world, are small government libertarians, however,  it is inevitable that they too benefit from government largess out of necessity.  The government needs billions of rolls of toilet paper and buying at least some of it from Georgia Pacific is inevitable, which enriches the Koch Brothers.   Wal Mart earns billions in revenues off the Food Stamp program, since many of the 50 million Americans that get Food Stamps shop at Wal Mart.   The same is true for JP Morgan that actually issues the Food Stamp Debit Cards to pay for those groceries. 

Let's face it.  Whose Bread They Eat, Whose Song They Sing.   Any company that benefits from government programs, benefits from Crony Capitalism.   Some of these government deals, like funding wind and solar power companies, with tax payer money, that have gone bankrupt make the headlines; but the reality is that Local, State and Federal governments are the 800 pound gorilla in our economy.  Naturally, those companies and indirectly their employees that benefit from government spending all support more of it even if it bankrupts our country.  It is what it is.

The Socialists & Communists In America

Americans that cling to our faith, guns and family values should all see the movie America: Imagine The World Without Her produced by Dinesh D'Souza, the conservative author.   It it D'Souza dispels all the lies and propaganda continually preached against America by the Socialists and Communists in government, the lame stream left wing media and academia.  These people hate the free market capitalism that has made the United States the greatest country in human history.  Many of them, including Pinocchio Obama and Hillary Clinton were students of Socialist-Communist Community Organizer Saul Alinsky from Chicago, who wrote the book 12 Rules for Radicals. 

Obama, the Community Organizer, is a Socialist and may even be a Communist who is following those rules to transform our country into a Socialist nation.  Think about it.  Though it may appear that Obama is incompetent; he is methodically working to destroy the America created, by our Founding Fathers, under the Constitution that was based on the rule of law, limited government, free market capitalism and individual freedom.   Alinsky preached Class Warfare to divide and create envy among our people.   Obama talks of "income equality" and portrays the rich as evil following this party line.  The story goes that the rich are rich because the poor are poor, not because they may be smarter and work harder. 

Obamanistas loved the General Motors and bank bail-outs because it gave them more control over our financial system.   In general, Obamanistas support Crony Capitalism to make companies dependent on them.  Higher government spending does that as well as 40% of our GDP now relates to local, state and federal government spending making it impossible for many companies to oppose cuts to spending.  Obama's goal is to make as many Americans dependent on government, as possible, so they will vote for Socialists, feeding at the trough and even bigger government.  As such, Obamanistas intentionally kill jobs, which is the reason today we have the lowest labor participation rate in three decades and 50 million Americans on Welfare and Food Stamps and more than 10 million Americans on Disability Benefits.   This is all out of the Alinsky School of Socialism-Communism. 

In addition, Obamanistas are using the apparatus of government at the IRS, NSA, EPA and Justice Department to punish those who love freedom and oppose Socialism and Communism, including Dinesh D'Souza who was indicted for violating campaign contribution laws.  The IRS targets Conservatives and Religious Groups.   The NSA is spying on all Americans.  The EPA, as one of Obama's Gestapos, is destroying whole industries.  And, the Justice Department, under Eric Holder is the most politicized in American history.   Obama has allowed our border to collapse to overwhelm our country by an invasion.   Finally, Obama wants to cause the economic collapse of the United States, which is the reason for all the deficit spending adding to our National Debt.  

Further, Obama is out to weaken our country by cutting back on our military.  These Socialists-Communists believe in one world government where the United States is one nation among many; following the orders of the United Nations, not one nation above all.  This Blogger has been saying for years that Obama is the biggest threat to our freedom that the United States has ever faced.  Obama is supported by Socialists-Communists Atheists in the left wing lame stream media and those in Academia that are teaching kids in our public schools and at our universities and colleges their left wing ideology and propaganda.  This is the reason they support Common Core, which is nothing more than a vehicle to spread left wing Socialist, anti-religious ideology. 

President Abraham Lincoln called it right when he said the danger to America would come from within our country, not from a foreign enemy.  See the movie America: Imagine The World Without Her to better understand the enemy and evil in our midst.   We have to take back our country at the ballot box and soon to preserve our freedom and way of life.   Otherwise, we are headed for economic collapse, civil strife on our streets and the potential dissolution of the United States.  Don't think it can't happen because there are many examples in history where it has happened.

EPA Destroys Another Family Business

The Environmental Protection Agency, one of Obama's Gestapos, is destroying another family business.   Mitcham Farms, established in 1946, as one of the largest peach orchards in the state of Louisiana is going out of business because the EPA has banned Methyl Bromide, a chemical that kills a fungus that impacts peach trees.   Without this pesticide, the Mitcham's peach trees are dying.  The EPA claims that this chemical is bad for the earth's ozone layer.  Tell that to the 60 employees at Mitcham Farms that are losing their jobs and their livelihoods.  The Competitive Enterprise Institute estimates that EPA regulations are costing the agricultural industry in Southern States about $1.5 Billion a year, which of course means more job loss.  When and where does it end.  This is the same EPA that now claims they can just fine American citizens, at will, without due process of law and then garnish wages and assets to collect.   These Gestapo Tactics are outrageous. 

The US has the lowest labor participation rate, at about 62%, in three decades.  Obamanistas and their Socialist pals in government continue to kill jobs at every turn.    They are destroying the coal industry and the many good paying jobs in that industry.   They are destroying the lumber industry, which makes no sense at all, since pine trees are fully renewable and regenerate in about 8 years.  Many types of manufacturing are simply not feasible any more in the United States because of environmental regulations, which has pushed millions of good paying jobs overseas.   

Obama, always on the campaign trail raising money, talks about job creation; but his actions speak much louder than his words.  Mr. President, approve the Keystone Pipeline to create thousands of good paying jobs in the US and to help make the United States energy independent, which is more critical than ever as the Middle East explodes.  We are all counting the days until January 20, 2017 when hopefully a pro-growth President take over to end the Obama misery.  In the mean time, voters have an opportunity to elect Common Sense Conservatives in 2014 and then again in 2016 to take back our country.  If it does not happen even more family businesses will go under.   We can't let that happen.

ObamaCare Could Unravel - Court Case Pending

Another court case challenging the legality of ObamaCare is working its way through the courts.   In Halbig versus Sebelius, the Plaintiff is asserting that the IRS illegally is providing tax subsidies in all 50 states in violation of the law.   ObamaCare is written to say that subsidies may only be provided if implemented in conjunction with State Run Exchanges; not the Federal Exchange.  Clearly, when the Socialists wrote the law, they assumed that all States would set up their own Exchanges.   The fact is that only 14 states did so.   36 states chose not to set up Exchanges so people in those states were forced on to the Federal Exchange. 

Obamanistas won this case in a lower court; but now it goes to  the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and there is some thinking that this Court will rule against Obama.  Either way, this case is going to the Supreme Court.  This will be Chief Justice John Roberts last chance to strike down ObamaCare.  Let's hope he gets it right this time.  Most important, the language in the law is clear.   What is happening now by Obamanista Executive Order and IRS regulations is illegal.  

If Obama wants to change the law, he would have to go back to Congress.  Obviously, Republicans will do nothing to facilitate ObamaCare so the law will not be changed in Congress.  Without the subsidies ObamaCare falls apart.   Let us hope that we are still a nation of laws; but time will tell on this one.

Obama & The Chaos At Our Border

Socialist President Pinocchio Obama has caused the humanitarian crisis and chaos at our border by implementing Executive Orders that encourage parents in Mexico and Central America to pay money to smugglers to get their children on American soil.  These people know that once their kids get to America they will more than likely be allowed to stay as long as Obama is President.  Obama is now asking Congress to approve $3.7 Billion to deal with the thousands of unaccompanied illegal alien children coming across our border.  Instead, Obama should be asking for a few million dollars to put these kids on air conditioned buses to take all them back to the countries they came from in Mexico and Central America.  

To be clear, these children are not "refugees" as claimed by some Socialists and the left wing lame stream media.   They are illegal aliens sent here by their parents to establish residency in the United States.  Once here, they will end up on our streets as is already happening.  Many of these kids have serious illnesses and even contagious diseases.  The people of Murrieta, California were absolutely right to protest to stop these illegal alien children from coming to their city.   The United States is broke.   We cannot continue taking on the poor from all over the world requiring American taxpayer support.   We don't even have enough jobs for Americans; yet alone more illegal aliens entering our country requiring public support. 

While many illegal aliens are hard working and work for low wages, they also end up in our public schools, hospitals and jails at taxpayer expense.   Any money illegal aliens pay in primarily sales taxes do not come anywhere near paying for the cost of all the services they use once they come to our country.   Many of them end up on various Welfare programs, one way or another.  Our border with Mexico has collapsed.  Obama has made a real mess of everything he touches.   Obama is responsible for the chaos on our border.  The last thing Congress should approve is the money that would allow these illegal alien children to stay in the United States.   These kids must be sent back to the countries they came from and soon. 

Washington State Going To Pot

Washington state, along with some other states, has legalized marijuana sales.   This is not just medical marijuana; but marijuana for recreational use, as well.   So now for about $50, someone can buy enough marijuana for about 4 joints, which is pretty expensive and unproductive.   As more "dealers" are added presumably the price will come down making marijuana more affordable.   How can this be good for society.   What this Blogger does not understand is that if breathing cigarette smoke into your lungs, which we know causes cancer is bad, how can breathing marijuana smoke be any better.  One contains nicotine and the other contains a hallucinatory drug; but they are both smoke, which must involve some pollutants going into the lungs.   Why aren't the environmental wackos, always talking about breathing clean air, yelling and screaming about the direct ingestion of marijuana smoke into the lungs.   We are not hearing from them because many of them on POT HEADS.  It actually is pretty funny. 

And, those of us that pay all the income taxes in our country, will all be paying for ObamaCare going forward, for many of these Pot Heads when they need lung transplants.  As such, I think this is pretty darn dumb.  Where are the studies that deal with marijuana smoke.   If they exist, the lame stream, left wing media and Socialist politicians never speak of them because many of them are Pot Heads.   This is the culmination of the hippy generation many of whom grew up on Pot, including Socialist President Pinocchio Obama.  And, by the way, selling or using marijuana is still against federal law; but Obamanistas are looking the other way choosing not to enforce the law in states that legalize marijuana.   So what else is new?

There are entrepreneurs lining up to get these Pot dealerships, including some Republican friends of mine in Nevada.  Clearly, there is money to be made in drug addiction, whether illegal or legal.   There are groups like Mothers Against Drunk Drivers that came into being because of deaths caused by drunk drivers.   So, should we expect to see Mothers Against Pot Heads, in the future, when driving under the influence of marijuana causes deaths.   I would think so.   Further, marijuana is a gateway drug.  Once the high from marijuana is not sufficient, these Pot Heads will turn to more potent addictive drugs.   There are lots of studies that show this occurs. 

I know, I know, alcohol is legal and lethal in many cases so why not Pot.  The reality is that both alcohol and drug abuse are destroying families today.   Why add to the mix.   Why cause future health problems that those of us that pay income taxes will have to pay for.   This Blogger believes that legalization of recreational marijuana is dumb, dumb, dumb and marks another indication of the decline of our society.   If medical marijuana is valid to treat some illnesses, then make it into a pill, like any other prescription drug, that is not ingested into the lungs.  In the meantime, watch out for Pot Heads on our streets coming to a city near you.

Obama On The Campaign Trail Again - Yada, Yada, Yada

Socialist President Pinocchio Obama is out on the campaign trail again raising money.   So what's new, just more Yada, Yada, Yada.  Obama went to Texas and put on a cowboy hat looking pretty darn stupid.  As they say in Texas, Obama is all hat meaning an empty suit.  But what is really stupid is that Obama is now blaming Republicans for the bad economy.   These are the same Republicans supporting lower taxes and less government regulations, the formula used by President's Kennedy, Reagan and Bush to spur economic growth.   These are the same Republicans in the House of Representatives that have enacted more than 40 bills to create jobs, that Obama and Socialist Senator Dirty Harry Reid, the Majority Leader in the Senate, will not even allow to come up for a vote in the Senate.  Of course, Obamanistas support just the opposite Socialist job killing Schemes.  Obama has raised taxes and added thousands of new regulations that are all killing jobs.  

Obama's EPA Gestapo is destroying whole industries.   And, Obama will not approve the Keystone Pipeline, which would create thousands of jobs and allow for more efficient fuel production in the United States.   Instead, Obama is pushing to raise the minimum wage, which the Congressional Budget Office has estimated will kill 700,000 jobs.   Another dumb idea. 

Always remember, Socialists like Obama will lie, cheat, steal, borrow, extort, spy on all Americans and target their perceived enemies to stay in power feeding at the trough.   We don't call Obama, the propagandist, Pinocchio for nothing.   Obama has made a mess of our economy.   The only reason the unemployment rate has come down at all is because millions of Americans have simply dropped out of the labor force.  The Labor Participation Rate, at about 62%, is the lowest it has been in three decades.  50 million Americans are on Welfare and Food Stamps.   More than 10 million Americans are collecting Disability Benefits.   Wall Street is doing just fine because of cheap money; but Main Street is hurting as the Middle Class continues to go backwards earning less and less every year.  Thank You Mr. President, or really thanks for nothing. 

Obama is responsible for all of this as he attempts to transform our country into a Socialist nation.   Obama's big government is the problem, not the solution.  Too bad that Obamanistas just don't understand our history and basic economics.  If you tax something you get less of it.  And, that is exactly what is happening in America because taxes are just too damned high and burdensome regulations are killing jobs.  It is what it is and it won't get better until we have a pro-growth President, instead of a job killer in the White House. 

Veterans Medical System - More Money Down A Rat Hole

Instead of enacting legislation to deal with the Veterans Affairs Scandal, by making it easier to FIRE those involved and sending some of them to jail, Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders and RINO Senator John McCain co-sponsored a "bi-partisan" bill to provide an additional $35 Billion to the Veterans Affairs Department, over the next ten years, to expand their system by building 26 new medical facilities in 17 states and Puerto Rico.   This bill was enacted by a vote of 93 - 3, which means many Republicans actually voted for this monstrosity.  So in this case, we have a corrupt and dysfunctional Veterans Affairs Department and medical system, so rather than fixing it through the private system, our elected representatives have rewarded these crooks, who cooked the books to get higher bonuses with more funding.  Go figure. 

This is another case of Stupid In America.  The reality is that the Veterans Affairs Medical System should have been sold off to private companies that would no doubt manage medical care better for VETS than the government has been doing.  Eligible VETS should then just be given a Voucher and or private medical insurance under ObamaCare, with a subsidy if eligible and allowed to go to any doctor or hospital of their choosing.   Creating even bigger government, in response to a failed system, is about as dumb as it gets.   The combined IQ's of our elected representatives gets them to the status of morons and not much higher. 

That vote of 93 - 3 just shows that Establishment Republicans don't get it.   We can always expect Socialists to vote for bigger government because that is their basis for staying in power to continue feeding at the trough.   One would hope that Republicans are smarter than that; but apparently not.  The solution to the Veterans Affairs Scandal and mess should have been less government involvement, not more.   But that is not how it works in Washington DC.  Screw up and your agency is rewarded with more money, even though it only makes the problem worse.   When are we going to see Common Sense coming out of Washington DC.   The answer is probably never until we have a Balanced Budget Constitutional Amendment and Term Limits for Members of Congress to end the corruption once and for all.  Some of these characters actually need to go to jail to stop the malfeasance we see everyday.

Grievances Against King Pinocchio Obama

All should read the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson, as the basis for the American Revolution.   In it, Jefferson list a series of Grievances against King George III of Britain, who he refers to as "He", as the reasons for the Revolution.   It is amazing that most of those Grievances would be applicable to King Pinocchio Obama today.   He, meaning Obama, has refused to execute the laws of the land.   He, meaning Obama, has pushed aside state laws and rights reserved to the people.  He, meaning Obama, has obstructed justice.   He, meaning Obama, has used Executive Orders and Regulations in violation of the Constitution.   He, meaning Obama, has created a standing army in the United States, with assault weapons, called the Department of Homeland Security and put them amongst us.  He, meaning Obama, has taxed us without our consent.   He, meaning Obama, has divided our nation like never before causing riots on our streets.  He, meaning Obama, has used the EPA to take lands from our citizens. 

There is even a Grievance listed related to obstructing the laws dealing with Immigration.  Clearly, our Founding Fathers and American patriots at the time fought the Revolutionary War to end this tyranny and here we are again today.   We got rid of King George only to suffer King Pinocchio Obama.  Thomas Jefferson listed all of these Grievances as the basis for the American Revolution.  Perhaps, Obama, the Constitutional Lawyer and Community Organizer needs to read our founding documents.  Of course, Obama could care less about the Declaration of Independence, or our Constitution.   As a Socialist ideologue, Obama is out to transform our country into a Socialist, or even Communist dictatorship stealing from those of us to that pay all the income taxes in our country and giving to those who pay nothing and or refuse to work for a living.  Obama actually wants to create more poor people dependent on government as the basis for staying in office so that Socialists can continue feeding at the trough. 

We see this everyday in Obama's words and deeds.  There is no doubt that we need to take back our country if we are to preserve our freedoms.  As Ronald Reagan always said, "we are just one generation away from tyranny".   If we don't stop the 100 years of Socialist Creep that has occurred, we will all end up enslaved.   It is already happening as government intrudes into all aspects of daily life.   It has to stop.

Independence Day - The Fight For Freedom

July 4, 1776, the official day of our Declaration of Independence from Britain and the start of the American Revolutionary War, was the beginning of our fight for freedom that continues to this day.  Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence to describe our God given, inalienable right to freedom.  Jefferson was talking about freedom from government tyranny.  Our Founding Fathers attempted to create limited government and checks and balances to prevent dictatorship.  Ironically, the Grievances set forth by Jefferson as the reasons for Revolution would all be applicable today as Grievances against Obama.   Read the Declaration to see that when Jefferson  is talking about "He" referring to King George III of Britain,  Jefferson could be talking about Obama as guilty of all the same things.  It is pretty amazing because today we are ruled by a similar tyrant who is using his Pen and Phone to issue Executive Orders and Regulations to make life miserable for many Americans.   We are right back where we started from in 1776.

So much so that our Founding Fathers would be turning over in their graves at discovering the 100 years of Socialist Creep that has led us to a huge federal government that intrudes into all aspects of daily life.  While our Founding Fathers would applaud the remarkable nation created by hard working, tax paying Americans, they would deplore the government over reach that has come with it in the name of "social justice", the code words for the redistribution of income.  They would also be astounded to learn that we have 50 million Americans on the dole and that the President either can't, or won't secure our border. 

The Revolutionary War was fought over taxation without representation among various other issues.  We face the same issue today, since we have heavy taxation for the 50% of us that pay all the income taxes in our nation, without proper representation.   Let's face it, our elected representatives of both political parties are often guilty of feeding at the trough, enriching themselves while attempting to stay in office for life.   They often represent Lobbyists, Crony Capitalists and Wall Street, rather than Main Street.   The Founding Fathers made two big mistakes in constructing the Constitution.  They did not include a Balanced Budget Amendment to prevent the borrowing that is bankrupting our nation.  And, they failed to include Term Limits for Members of Congress and the President.   Term limits for the President thankfully later came as an Amendment after Franklin Roosevelt was elected four times; however, Members of Congress will not act to limit their own terms because that would mean an end to their gravy train that is corrupting our nation. 

Thomas Jefferson envisioned that Revolution might be necessary every once in a while to get a nation back on track.  In a sense, the Civil War was another Revolution.  Let us hope that it does not take a Revolution to stop the fiscal insanity that we see happening across our country as politicians at all levels continue to borrow, tax and spend money we don't have to stay in power.  Clearly, we have lost our way and never more so than with these Socialist Obamanistas is power.  The elections of 2014 and 2016 are an opportunity to get our nation headed in the right direction.   If the voters are not wise enough to do so, we will see the economic collapse of the United States in the next 20 years.  If that happens, all bets are off because we will see civil strife on our streets that could lead to Revolution.   This is about the lessons of history that those who vote for Socialists never seem to learn.

Obama Rated Worst President Since World War II

In the non-partisan and very well respected Quinnipac Poll, Socialist President Obama has been rated the worst President since World War II.  This is really surprising since this Blogger lived through Jimmy Carter who was a miserable failure as President.   The difference is that in addition to being incompetent, Obama has divided our nation like never before.  Obama "gave people hope, but he clearly does not know how to govern".   As a Socialist ideologue, it is impossible for Obama to work with others that oppose his Socialist Schemes to get anything done to benefit our people and our country. 

In addition, Obama the Constitutional Law Professor and Community Organizer just does not seem to understand that we have three co-equal branches of government including the Legislative, Judiciary and the Executive Branch.  Obama is supposed to execute the laws of the land, not make them by Executive Orders and or Department Regulations.  This is the reason Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner is suing the President to push back Obama's over reach, the same as has happened more than 13 times by the courts.  And, Boehner has gone on to say that Immigration Reform is dead because no one trusts Obama to follow the law, whatever it is. 

We can only count the days until January 20, 2017 when Obama is finally throw out of office to end the misery.  By that time, it will be sayonara and good riddance and don't let the door slap you in the butt, Mr. President.  We face a lousy economy, numerous Scandals, foreign policy in complete disarray, ObamaCare that is a failure and increased threats from Terrorists.  This is the Obama Legacy.  It is really too bad because our first Black President was positioned to bring our nation together to make big things happen.  Instead, Obama focused on his Socialist Schemes that have made a big mess in our country and the world that the next President will have to clean up.  It is what it is.

Thousands Of Illegal Alien Children Being Released Throughout the US

Rather than being deported, thousands of unaccompanied illegal alien children, that have recently crossed our border, are being released into cities all over the United States.  Supposedly, illegal aliens arrested at the border are given a summons to appear at some future date; but of course they never show up only to vanish into our country.   Most important, many of these children are suffering from serious illnesses like tuberculosis, which is highly contagious.   This is about as dumb and crazy as it gets.   

Since Mexico is the transit point both for illegal aliens coming from Mexico and all of Latin America, we should have buses waiting at the border.  Illegal Aliens that come across our border should be loaded on those buses immediately upon capture and driven to Mexico City to allow the Mexican government to deal with these people.   It is about time for Mexico to take some responsibility for the mess they are creating in our country. 

Socialist President Pinocchio Obama refuses to secure our border.   The reality is that the border between the United States and Mexico has collapsed.  This is a humanitarian crisis of Obama's making because these people know that once they get to the United States, they will be permitted to join the other 12 million Illegal Aliens already in our country.   This has to stop.  Obama should position the National Guard, or the Regular Army at our border.  If the Mexicans will not act, we should send those troops a few miles into Mexico to stop this invasion.  What other choice do we have.   The United States is dealing with an INVASION and yet Obama does nothing to stop it.  Ridiculous!!!. 

Supreme Court Strikes Down Obamanista Over Reach

Socialist President Pinocchio Obama may have a pen and phone allowing him to make law by Executive Orders and Departmental Regulations, or so he thinks; but various courts concerning 13 separate instances of unconstitutional over reach have said NO.  The Hobby Lobby case is another example.  Obamanistas issued ObamaCare regulations requiring that companies fund 20 types of contraceptives for women in their medical plans.   16 of those contraceptives are regular birth control pills.  4 were Morning After, or Inter Uterine Devices that cause abortion to occur.   Hobby Lobby already provided and will continue to provide the 16 regular birth control pills, at company expense, for their employees.  It was the 4 abortion applications that Hobby Lobby owners, as devout Christians, declined to provide. 

The Supreme Court, by a vote of 5 to 4, upheld the owners of Hobby Lobby's right to exercise their religious beliefs by declining to pay for abortion related drugs or devices.  If Hobby Lobby had lost this case they would have faced fines of more than $400 million a year, which the Supreme Court also struck down as crazy.  This was a very narrow decision that only involves privately owned companies and in this case the 4 abortion related drugs, or devices.  

Of course, Socialists and the lame stream left wing media are already spreading propaganda about this case to win votes and campaign contributions.  Hobby Lobby is not denying their female employees birth control at company expense.   16 of the required birth control pills required by ObamaCare were never the subject of this case.  It was only those pills and devices that effectively caused an abortion to occur that were the subject of this case. 

Most important, at least related to privately owned companies, an owner's religious beliefs do not stop at the company door.  This Blogger made absolutely certain that our company health insurance does not cover abortion on demand because both my wife and I are ardently pro-life.   Since we pay for a substantial portion of our company's medical insurance, there is no way we could participate in paying for abortions.   We do cover birth control pills.   

Abortion on demand, paid for by an employer, as a form of birth control, is not a right under our Constitution.  Any woman seeking an abortion has access to Planned Parenthood, or other organizations to secure this heinous procedure at low cost, or even for free.   No company, private or public should be forced to pay for abortions; though the Hobby Lobby case only covers privately owned companies.   Finally, the Supreme Court got it right.
