No such thing as a free lunch

Did you hear about the school that took kids' lunches away?

At a school in Salt Lake City, Utah, students use cards to buy lunch.  Parents are supposed to put money on the cards so that the kids can pay for their lunches.

Everyone makes mistakes, it would be very easy to forget to load up the card.  I have forgotten my kids' lunch tickets before.  I got a note that said, you owe us money for your kids' lunch, idiot.  (I am paraphrasing.)

Well, apparently that isn't the policy at Uintah Elementary.  The people running the cafeteria noticed the deficits on students' accounts and took away the lunches, after the students had been given the food.

What?

Little kids were calling their parents crying.  That would be pretty tough on a little kid.  Don't you think?

Why would they do that?  Why would they punish the child in such a public way?  Couldn't they have just asked the parents for the money?

Liberals don't seem to recognize that children are children.  They want to teach sex ed to kindergarteners, for heaven's sake.  Taking away a little kid's lunch and throwing it away isn't something that an adult, who is caring for a child, should do.

It shows a real lack of caring for the child.  Maybe that is why people are pulling their kids out of school and home schooling them.

Right?

Dog poo

I was walking my dog this morning. It is really hard to walk a dog in a foot of snow!  But, it is warming up a little bit and the top two to four inches of snow have melted.

Guess what was everywhere?

Yup, dog poo!  Did people think that no one would ever find it because of the snow?  What is that stuff made of anyway?  How can it remain intact under a foot of snow?

Anyway, you know what it made me think of?  Of course!  Obama!

The way he has been sweeping stuff under the rug, that carpet looks like Mount Everest.

But, you know what?

When you pull that rug back, everyone of those scandals will be intact:

Fast and furious
Benghazi
IRS targeting of conservatives
NSA spying scandal
Obamacare debacle

Just like dog poo.

State of the Union preview

I am going to save you, like, 3 hours of your life.  Yes, you will owe me.  But, you can spend 3 whole hours this evening catching up on DVR shows and NOT watch the state of the union because I am going to tell you now what you won't be missing.

Because millions of people have left the job market and have given up looking for a job, the unemployment rate has gone from 7.2% to 6.7%.  Expect to hear Obama go on and on about this success.  But, you know that 13 million people have just given up.  A historic number of people are out of work and it is all due, directly, to the horrendous economic policies of Obama.

Watch Transformers, I am sure that one will be on TBS.

The economy has been growing at a pathetic rate of 2%.  That is, well, pathetic.  But, Obama will go on and on about it.

Catch up on Fast and Furious, you might have missed 5 or so of those and you can see that cute sweetie, Paul Walker.

Then, Obama is going to go on and on about income inequality.  You and I know that all of his job-killing, regulation-strangling, tax-burdening policies are destroying the economy.  Most importantly, those policies are CREATING income inequality.

But, pop some popcorn and enjoy your life because if Obama has his way, you won't be living like that for long.  You are going to be paying much more to subsidize the lifestyle of someone who wants your lifestyle.

Of course, that person could work hard and achieve yor lifestyle.  But, that is going to be impossible really soon, especially if Obama has his way.

Then, Obama is going to talk about the landmark achievement - Obamacare.  What has it achieved?  Obamacare has officially kicked 6 million people off their insurance.  Yes, 2.2 million have "signed up."  But, most of those people had Medicare anyway.  We have spent 3 billion dollars to get healthcare insurance for  200,000 people.  Yup, only 11% of NEW Obamacare enrollees didn't have  insurance before Obamacare.

Some achievement.

Then, he is gong to talk about how he is opening the Keystone Pipeline which will usher in a new era of economic prosperity...

Ha!  Gotcha!

He is not going to say that.  He is going to go on and on about all of his liberal policies and how wonderful they are.

I bet there are a few episodes of Downton Abbey I haven't seen.

Right?

Do something else.  Remember, you owe me.

Ponzi Scheme

Why are Ponzi schemes illegal?  And, why are Medicare, social security and Obamacare legal?

We were getting stuff ready for our taxes and I was looking at my husband's W2.  The amount of social security and Medicare taxes is unbelievable!  Go get your W2.  You will be outraged.  And, you know what?  We will never see a penny of that money.

I know I said it before, but if Newt had gotten his way in the 90s, all of that money would be sitting in an account with my husband's name on it and we would get every penny of it back.

But, nope.

Liberals said that privatizing social security was stealing granny's retirement.  They called it pushing granny off a cliff.  They even have an ad showing a man in a suit (clearly a Republican) pushing a woman in a wheelchair off a cliff.

They know that isn't what we want.  But, I worry that they believe their constituents to be so uninformed that they can say anything and people will believe it.

Of course, after getting their way, liberals spent all of the money on other things.  After telling granny their money was safe with them, democrats spent all of granny's (and our) money.

They spend all of the social security money on God knows what.  And, they spent the Medicare money on Obamacare

The bottom line is that social security is the idea that you pay a little bit now and get more later.  How is that different from a Ponzi scheme?  Newer people pay in and the money goes to the older people.  It works until it is discovered, the money runs out or there are fewer younger people than old.

Same with Medicare and same with Obamacare.

Why are they legal?

I don't know.  Do you?

Congress is trying to give away your rights


 If I am counting correctly, that is 99.  So, one weasel-ly senator didn't even have the guts to vote.  Clearly, some democrats are awake and voted against this, thank goodness!  This is the kind of stuff congress is doing, the kind of stuff that wouldn't have even received a vote 5 years ago.  Please make note of these senators, if they are in your state, you must call them.  This is just completely insane.
 
Ok, the rest of this has been forwarded and was written by someone else:

In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.  The Statement of Purpose from the Bill reads:  "To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty." 
 
The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms.  The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry, now get this, on all private guns and ammo.
 
Astonishingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power.
 
Here are the 46 senators who voted to give your rights to the U.N.
Baldwin (D-WI)
Baucus (D-MT)
Bennett (D-CO)
Blumenthal (D-CT)
Boxer (D-CA)
Brown (D-OH)
Cantwell (D-WA)
Cardin (D-MD)
Carper (D-DE)
Casey (D-PA)
Coons (D-DE)
Cowan (D-MA)

These Senators voted to let the UN take control of something over our own Constitution and American laws.   46 Senators Voted to Give your 2nd Amendment Constitutional Rights to the U.N.
 
Please send this to SOMEONE!  They need to lose their next election.
 
 

Downton Abbey

You may have guessed that, eventually, I would get sucked into the vortex that is Downton Abbey.  Come on, it is freezing outside.  There is, like, a foot of snow.  The dog won't go out there and the kids could get frostbite.

So, I have some free time on my hands.

Besides, I can't take all of the lies, betrayals, scandals and drama that currently exist in this country.

Of course, that makes me want to traipse across the pond for some lies, betrayals, scandals and drama in jolly old England!  What better way to dish up dirt than to serve it with tea, crumpets and clotted cream?

Why are Americans so in love with this show?

Why?  In a world where anything goes - why would anyone be interested in a world where nothing goes.

In a society where manners are seen as bourgeoisie, why would anyone watch a show where impeccable manners are the foundation for the world?

Downton Abbey is the tale of Robert, the Earl of Grantham, his American heiress wife and their 3 daughters.  The story begins with the sinking of the Titanic in 1912.  Having no sons, the earl's considerable estate, including the mansion (Downton Abbey) are all entailed away to a cousin, Patrick.  The home and all of its inhabitants, both upstairs and down are thrown into complete turmoil  because Patrick perished on that fateful ship.

Downton has survived the war, scandal, several marriages and near marriages, a few deaths and I am currently somewhere in 1921.

When we currently have everything, can get anything, have been sexually liberated and live in freedom, what would draw people to a place that is just the opposite?  Ruin and destitute poverty lurk at every door, for everyone.

Of course, it is fascinating to see that some of the nobility are just that, noble.  Meanwhile, their most faithful and loyal servants seem, well, just as noble.  They literally give up their entire lives for service to the noble family.  In fact, England's aristocracy couldn't have existed without this invisible servant class.  It is very interesting to study that time in history.

But, why does it strike such a chord with American audiences at this time in OUR history?

Could it be that living without the parameters of a moral code isn't exactly as liberating as our hippie friends thought it would be?

Is "anything goes" really the recipe for freedom and happiness or just the opposite?  Since we have thrown aside morals, values and religion are we better off?  Or, do we really wish that we could transport back to a time when virtue meant something, when honesty meant everything, when the world, well, made sense because there was a clear meaning of right and wrong?

I don't know.  Do you?

Huckabee

I just don't get it.  I have listened to the exact words that came out of Mike Huckabee's mouth.  I have read it quoted by conservatives and liberals.  And, I just don't get it.

What's the problem?

Liberals DO act as though reproductive health is the only issue that is important to women.  They DO say that they will give free birth control to women and somehow seem to think that will secure the vote of all women forever.

That is demeaning, insulting, disgusting and stupid.  It is a war on women.

Birth control IS NOT the only important thing to women.  And, to say so, as the democrats do, is wrong.  The number one issue on the minds of women is jobs and the economy.  As most women watch their household budgets dwindling, their top priority is to keep food on the table and the light bill paid.  (See, women are the "congress" of most households, they hold "the power of the purse").

Interestingly, they aren't thinking about sex.  But, I am not sure how we can ever get the party of Bill Clinton to recognize that.

Can you?

Athletes vs. Academics

Why is it that when a person studies a lot and achieves high academic status (Ph.Ds, etc) they tend to become liberal?  They seem to become god-less.  They know so much that they reject God.

I am saying "sometimes."  Don't Huckabee me.

Why is it that when a person (like an Olympic athlete) achieves the highest status in his or her field, he or she tends to be humble and thank God?  They seem to be pushing their bodies to the limit and tend to recognize a higher power and thank God for their abilities.

I am saying "tends."  Notice that.

If you don't believe me, watch the Olympics.

Then, go to an academic symposium on, anything.

I'm just saying.

Keystone pipeline and the EPA

 I haven't researched this fully yet.  So, this is just a start.  But, I wanted to point this out.

The EPA has been conspiring with environmental activists to halt the Keystone pipeline.

They have the emails and everything.  I suspect you won't here anything about it on the news.

But, if a conservative administration did something like that, there would be hell to pay.

Do any liberals stop to think about what might happen when a conservative president is elected?  Don't they see what all of this power could do in the hands of the good guys?  I mean, the opposition party?

An open letter to conservatives in New York

Leave New York.

There are plenty of states that will be happy to have you.  Pack your bags and get on out.

Andrew Cuomo, governor of New York, recently said in a radio interview that people who are pro-gun, anti-gay and pro-life aren't welcome in the state of New York!

Can you even imagine if a conservative said something like that?  He or she would be fired, immediately.

Period.

So, start spreading the news, conservatives, you aren't welcome there, leave today!


National debt

Ok, if you have come this far, you are interested in the future of our country.

Come on, how many people are actually going to open a post called,  "National Debt."  I guess I should have titled it something like, "Miley's latest pics."  But, I didn't and here you are.

We have three more years of this hopeless president, his failed policies and a dismal economic outlook.  So, this budget thing is going to come up again.  And, the way that guy seconds money, it will be soon.

So, let's look at the pure idiocy of the liberal argument - anyone who doesn't want to raise the debt ceiling is: a terrorist, an arsonist, stupid, racist, is "holding a gun to people's heads," is "strapping a bomb to their chest," taking food from babies, "holding the government hostage."  I couldn't make this stuff up.  Honestly.  If I could, I might be, like, an editor at the New York Times.  Instead, I am the purveyor of a $6 blog.

Ok, so reasonable, responsible people who merely want: less government waste, lower taxes and limited government were called all of those names.

Let's look at some real world examples and how the liberal argument, "Keep raising my debt limit, I will pay you back later, eventually, maybe" doesn't work, will never work and what people in the real world would say to you if you used that argument.

Let's say that you like to shop and you have $17,000 in credit card debt.  Your bank tells you that you can't have anymore credit, you have to pay back some of the principle.  Until then, you credit is cut off.  (Maybe they want you to go back down to your pre-spending spree days and have only $5 grand in debt.  Just sayin')

You say to your banker, "I understand that my debt is high, but, please raise my credit limit so that I can keep on spending.  I will pay you back eventually, maybe."

The Banker will say, "No."

Imagine if you then jumped up and said, "You are a terrorist!"  Of course the banker isn't a terrorist, he is just trying to stay in business.  Frankly, you are a crappy client.

Let's look at another example.  Say a business has, um, $17 million in debt.  The company's creditors call in the head dudes and say, "You guys need to start paying this back now or at least spend less."

The president of the company says, "Sure, you raise our debt limit and we will pay you back eventually, maybe."

Uh, no.

The president of the company jumps up, enraged, "You are holding these negotiations hostage!"

The creditors would be like, "Wha...?"

Are they terrorists?  Of course not, they are trying to stay in business, get their money back and the company is not a good risk.

Now, the example we have all been waiting for: imagine if the federal government recklessly ran up 12 TRILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT in just 5 short years.  So, now the total national debt is a whopping $17 trillion. That is more spending by the federal government in five years than the entire federal government spent in the previous 232 years.  A few people actually say, "this has to stop, this is hurting the country."  Please see the above list for the actual names these people were called.

Sheesh.  This is scary!  Except, it has actually happened.  And, wait, it will happen again.

Security at the Olympics

I am starting to think that we should boycott the Olympics games.  I am serious.

When Vladimir Putin is touted on the world stage as the model for diplomacy, I think that we are living in an alternate universe.

When we are beging pulled around by the nose by North Korea, instead of putting them in their place, I scratch my head in disbelief.

Then, we get preached to about income inequality by Mr. 4 Million Dollar Vacation.

Sheesh.

What is going on?

When you think of the government, do you think of efficiency?  Do you think of an organization that can swoop into difficult situations and fix them?  Or, do you think of a slow-moving bureaucracy?  Do you think of a monolith that doesn't care about efficiency, your satisfaction or quality of service?

Let me help you.  Think of the post office.  Does the post office provide you with friendly service at a low price?

Uh, no.

If anyone thought that the government COULD swoop in and fix things or help things or do things efficiently or anything of the sort - surely they know now, right?  How can anyone NOT see that the government take over of healthcare has been a collossal waste of time, waste of billions of dollars and a complete failure?

It used to be that when a tyrannical government issued propaganda, we could see through it.  Distrust of the government is the foundation of this country.  We moved here to get away from a tyrannical government.  We came here to be left alone.

Now, all of a sudden, somehow, in the last 5 years, none of us can do anything without government intervention.

Putin, Jong-un, where are we going?

More liberal lunacy

I just heard a liberal commentator say that if Republicans had "let" the Obama administration "put more money into the economy" then the economy would be recovering at a faster rate.

Hunh.

Well, that sounds good.  You might be able to put that on a poster and stand in front of a profitable business yelling that or something.  But, it isn't true and frankly, it doesn't make any sense.

Obama has been dumping money into the "economy" by giving unlimited, no strings attached hand outs to anyone, well, with a hand out.  He has been given free reign to put as much money as he could imagine "into the economy."  He prints money, he hands out money, like it grows on trees.

In addition to printing money, borrowing money and putting the largest economy in the world on the verge of bankruptcy, where is that money coming from?

It comes from people who work and pay taxes and profitable businesses, of course.  They are the ones paying into the great Obama machine of big government that is casting a huge shadow on our economy.

Can those profitable businesses grow or hire more people?  No way, their profits belong to the government.  Can those people who work hard go buy stuff and put that money back into the economy?  Nope, they are evil and greedy and must pay their fare share.

So, why is the economy shrinking under Obama (excuse me, growing at an anemic rate)?  Because he is taking money from the people who work and giving it to those who don't.

No matter how many newsreels we see of able bodied young men who surf all day in the California sun and then use their EBT cards to go buy steak and lobster every night, it doesn't matter to liberals. They close their eyes, put their fingers in their ears and yell, "La, la, la!  I can't hear you!  That doesn't happen!  There is no abuse of the system!"

Of course there are people who genuinely need aid.  By golly, they are going to get it.  But, abuse of the system is legendary.  Anyone who wants to stop the abuse is accused of wanting to take food from babies.

That is a complete lie, but it sure has shut up the debate about fixing welfare fraud.  Hasn't it?

We need to completely reverse the entire government rollout of the Obama administration.  It  is killing our economy.  Yes, the rich will get richer, but the poor will be richer too.

But, of course, you know what happens then.  They become Republicans.

The evolution of hate

Boy, liberals spewing hate got me all jacked up.

We had the whole thing making fun of Mitt Romney for his family adopting a black child.  Now, we have this whole thing with people viciously attacking Tamera Mowry (that cutie) and it really got me thinking.

How did we get here?

Well, hate is taught.  It is learned.  Have you ever seen that picture of the two hands, one is white and one is black.  The researcher showed the picture to children and asked what the difference was.  The child said, "One hand is smaller than the other."

It is a good thing that Obama's mother was colorblind or he wouldn't be here!  It is also a good thing that his white grandparents were ok raising a mixed race child, or he might be in Kenya with one of his many 1/2 siblings, living in a dirt hut.

But, Obama has had fertile soil in which to sow his seeds of racism, class warfare and general hate.  How did that soil become so fertile?

We have to go back to the beginning, the beginning of liberalism and the basis for our current liberal progressive movement - evolution.  Darwin's theory of evolution has never been proven.  That is why it is a theory and not a law.  Laws can be proven, scientifically, like the law of gravity.  If you drop something, it will fall to the ground, period.  You could do it a million times.  The law would always work.

Not only has the theory of evolution not been proven, it has been disproven many times by science and the fossil record.  When the fossil record is studied, it is as if, all of the plants kinda appeared all at once, very close in time.  Then, all of the animal life appeared in close order.  Then, the fossil record shows evidence of a great flood of some sort and then, bam, all of it is back, like all at once.

On his deathbed, Darwin completely retracted, disavowed, his entire body of work.  But, does that stop liberal haters?  No way!  The theory of evolution has become, for liberals, the linchpin in their religion of liberalism.

We are all animals.  We are descended from animals, period.  Animals, humans and the environment are all equal.  Ok?  This is very important.  Once you get that, every liberal argument flows very easily from this foundation, this beginning.

Where should we start?  Oh!  Eating meat.  God didn't give Adam dominion over the animals and didn't tell him to carve them up into a nice roast.  Humans and animals are equal.  So, eating meat is murder.  Killing a person who eats meat is EQUAL to eating meat.

God didn't give the beautiful earth to people and say, "Have at it. But, you know, clean up."  No, humans and the earth are EQUAL.  So, someone who uses oil is hurting the earth.  Hurting a person
like that isn't wrong, it is the same as hurting the earth.

God didn't create people in His own image, we are just animals, descended from monkeys. So, killing babies is no worse than throwing kittens in the river.  Of course, now, if someone threw kittens in the river, he or she would go to jail.  But, an abortion doctor?  He gets immortalized in film!  Remember "The Cider House Rules?"  It won awards.

Euthanasia - anyone who is old and can't be of service to society should be put out of his or her misery, right?  I mean, it is just an old, sick animal, we should euthanize it.  We don't do that to dogs anymore, but we are doing that to humans!

And, at all costs, we can't celebrate Christmas or any Christian holidays.  We must abandon our closest friend, Israel.  The Judeo-Christian ethic, which expounds the exact opposite of every liberal philosophy, must be silenced.

Did I miss anything?  It doesn't matter, you can figure it out.  Take each liberal argument and trace it to its core - a fundamental rejection of the Judeo-Chriatian ethic.

Don't judge, don't call anyone names, don't reduce yourself at all.  Just explain the truth, lovingly.  It is our only hope.

The truth.

Tamera Mowry

This has been bugging me for a few days.  It is kinda like a follow up to, "I am too stupid to be a liberal" because I just don't get it.

I thought that liberals were supposed to be tolerant, open-minded and like everyone.  Right?

Since when did liberals start to dislike inter-racial marriage?  I misses that memo.  I had to stop reading the tweets that were posted about Tamera Mowry because she married a white man, Adam Housley.  They were so vile and hateful, it was disgusting

It's crass just typing that!  When did we get to be so low?  The president is the result of an interracial marriage.  I thought we liked that.

What made me decide to write this was a movie that I saw part of last night.

Remember the movie with Sandra Bullock, "The Blind Side?"  In it, a white family takes in and eventually adopts a black young man, Micheal Oher.  Michael, a gentle giant, then goes on to play in the NFL.

That movie won Oscars.

So, I am sitting there thinking of that cutie Tamera and thinking about Michael Oher and I thought what on earth has happened?

Then, I looked at the guide and noticed the date of the film "The Blind Side."

2009.

The Blind Side came out 5 years ago, before America went through its fundamental transformation.

Amazing how quickly things can change isn't it?

I understand that there were bigots before Obama and there will be after.  But, what I am saying is, that as a society, a film that featured an interracial family won awards.

Now, just five years later, a young woman, who has never had a bad word of publicity in her entire life is being completely smeared for marrying a white man.

Is this the kind of transformation we needed?

200th post

Well, here we are, our 200th post.  Can you believe it?

I cannot believe the things that are happening in this country.  Half of the country seems to be aware that our personal freedom is under attack in every possible way.  But, the other half - they either don't care, aren't paying attention or actually want us to be a communist country ruled by a tyrannical dictator.

That is what he is, if congress won't act to promote his progressive liberal agenda, he has a "pen and a phone" and he is going to do it without congress.

He shakes hands with coal miners in West Virginia, then goes back to the office and does everything that he can to completely destroy the coal industry.

He shakes the hands of senior citizens, then goes back to the office and takes Medicare money to pay for Obamacare.

Global warming is false, it just isn't happening, but he can't write fast enough to make laws that will cost billions and restrict our economy even more because of "climate change."

The EPA, under Obama, released the private information of ranchers and farmers.  These ranchers and farmers are now, rightly, afraid of Eco-terrorists doing harm to them, their families, their farms and their livestock.

Obamacare hasn't really helped anyone.  Most of the people who signed up for Obamacare did so because they were tossed off their previous plans, because of Obamacare.  So, in essence, this entire debacle has done nothing, only cost the American taxpayers billions of dollars.

I could go on and on.  Actually, I have, for the past 200 posts.

Vote for conservatives, vote for Republicans.  We have to fight, we have to stick together.  We can get through this, we have something worth fighting for.

Things that should make you outraged

I alluded to this earlier in my post explaining that I am too dumb to be a liberal.  But, I want to write a little bit more about this:

The healthcare.gov website isn't secure.  World renowned security experts have been consulted and the website isn't secure.  When you buy something from Walmart.com and put it on your card, it is a secure site.

But, healthcare.gov, in which people are supposed to put their most sensitive data, is NOT SECURE. With me so far?

House Republicans have sponsored legislation that would require the government to tell people when their security has been breached.  Reasonable, right? If you put your information in healthcare.gov, the government should tell you if someone, like, steals it.

The Democrats have rejected the bill.

Democrats are supposed to care about people, they are fighting for you, they are all about the little guy.

Snort.

I can't understand how anyone can oppose notifying people of a personal security breach and still sleep at night.

Speaking of sleeping at night, we finally have the findings from congressional investigations of what happened in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.  The president and Hilary Clinton were informed that an Al Qaeda-led, terrorist attack was taking place at our embassy in Libya, within hours of the beginning of the attack.

Yet, they both went out and intentionally, knowingly, perpetuated the lie that the attack was about an anti-Muslim video.  This is the smoking gun, people.  This is the evidence, proven that Obama and Clinton lied.

I say a lot that if this were a Republican the reaction from the media would be very different.  The media didn't report anything, at all, about this bombshell revelation that the president lied, again.

Want the evidence that if it were a Republican the coverage would be different?  Look at what happened with Christie, see post Bridge Over Troubled Water.

But wait, there's more!  The Obama administration has bragged in recent days that 6 million have received insurance coverage all thanks directly to Obamacare.  They count 2.1 million who have signed up on the exchanges and 3.9 million who have enrolled in Medicaid.

Ok?

The 3.9 million include everyone who already had Medicaid and just renewed through the open enrollment period.  The NEW enrollees, which can be attributed to Obamacare are more like 380,000.

This is an outright lie.  Can you imagine if a Republican fudged numbers?  OMG!  And, the 2.1 who have allegedly signed up?  They have no idea if those people have paid because that part of the website hasn't been built yet.

You should be outraged.

I am.

It's official, I am too stupid to be a liberal

See?  They were right!  Conservative Christians are dumb.

I read and listen and can't figure out for the life of me how anyone can keep it all straight.  None of it makes any sense.  They contradict themselves, they lie outright.  We can pull up the clips and play them side by side.  Let me give you some examples.

Muslim is good, according to liberals, it is a religion of peace equal to Christianity.  But, then, why are conservative commentators personally attacked for calling Obama a Muslim? If it is fine, by their own account, why would they need to hide it?

See?

Ok, Christianity and all of its tenants are bad to liberals, really bad.  But, Obama pretends to be one, a Christian.  Why?  See how this isn't making any sense?

They say one thing and do another.  Or they say something and don't mean it.  Frankly, it doesn't make any sense and I just can't keep up.

Why do they say that Al Qaeda is on the run when it clearly isn't?

Why do they say that the IRS abused its power when targeting conservatives but won't do anything about it?  In fact, they are making a mockery of it by appointing an Obama supporter to "investigate" it.

Why do they sent troops to battle, but don't really want us to win?

Why do they say that they serve the country but don't support policies that are in the best interest of the country or its people?

Why do they say you can keep your doctor and health insurance plan when you can't?

Why do they set up a website with no security, ask everyone to use it and then fight with congress when congress asks for website security?

Why do they say that the economy is improving when it is not?

Why do they say that unemployment is going down when it isn't?

Why do they say that income inequality is a problem when it isn't?  Liberal policies are the problem.

Why do they say that unlimited handouts are good for people when they aren't?  You wouldn't give your child every single thing that he or she asks for.

Why do they call the deficit a good thing and people who oppose our uncontrollable debt "irresponsible?"

Why do they say that the government doesn't have any money, then spend money closing open air monuments to keep the American people out?

Why do they go on vacations that cost millions of dollars but close the White House to school children?

I could go on and on.  But, seriously, I am confused.  It is all a big jumble of nonsense, backwards world.

I don't understand it.

Do you?


Disney on Ice

I took a break from politics last night and we all went to see Disney on Ice.  Each year, it is my crowning achievement to get good tickets for this show.  It is a great show and I got excellent tickets. We were so close that we could clearly see the facial expressions of the skaters.

They looked so happy, gliding along, doing something that they love.  I suspect that most of the skaters were one triple lutz away from the Olympics.  But, still, they get to do something they love.

I also noticed, in the pairs skating, that the female is smiling, skating and looking straight ahead. The man never takes his eyes off her.  Even when they are skating side by side, he watches her.  Sigh.

Anyway, the show was about celebrations.  So, they had a birthday party.  There was an Obama tribute, Pinocchio came out and lied about something.

:)

They did Carnivale, Mardi Gras, Halloween and saved the best for last - Christmas.

The last number was clearly Christmas, they had stockings, presents, a roaring fire and chimney, even Goofy was dressed up like Santa.  And, guess what they said as every character from the entire show came out?

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

My children and husband looked over at me with fear and awe.  Not sure why.

Other than referring to one of the Toy Story toys as a "Christmas toy" the WORD Christmas wasn't even spoken.

Isn't that sad?  It made me sad and a little mad.  I am going to compose a strongly worded letter to Feld Entertainment.

That is FELD ENTERTAINMENT.

Lone Survivor

A new movie is taking the nation by storm.  This movie is not about a relationship between cowboys and it is not about sex or drugs.  Yet, it is still popular.

The movie stars Mark (may not be a liberal) Wahlberg and is based on the book by Marcus Luttrell, a former Navy Seal.  The book and movie are Luttrell's account of events involving his Navy Seal team fighting against Al Qeada terrorists.

Why are people responding to this film?  Could it be because people love America?

Why do liberals and the media dislike this film and its popularity so much?

I believe it is because liberals don't understand war.  First of all, liberals inherently believe that America is bad.  They don't believe that our goals are noble.  Because they think that America is bad, they don't understand that America is something worth fighting for.  So, under no circumstances do they understand the need for war.

Liberals are commonly humanists.  They believe that all humans are good.  They genuinely don't understand that man is inherently bad.  They don't understand that some people genuinely hate us, want to kill us and won't stop until we stop them or we are all dead.

Liberals don't understand that we arm ourselves to protect ourselves from people who hate us.  They don't understand that we have a military to protect us from people who hate our freedom.

They don't understand that we go to war, begrudgingly, as an absolute last resort only to protect ourselves and our way of life.

Why?

They don't believe in American Exceptionalism.  They, typically, oppose the Judeo-Christian ethic.  They actually think that WE are warmongers.

Luttrell, in an interview was asked what he would say to critics who called this film pro-war.  He said that he didn't understand the term pro-war.  There is nothing good about war.  He said that war is horrible, holding your friend as he dies is horrible.  He just couldn't figure out why anyone would even use the term pro-war.

And, that is the great divide that we have right now, it really is a chasm.

Liberals don't understand that America is the greatest country the world has ever known, it is worth defending, it is worth fighting for.

They go on apology tours and blame America first for everything.

Proud Americans understand that America is exceptional and people hate us and want to kill us.  We need to arm ourselves and, as a last resort, go to war to protect this republic.

Will there ever be a bridge to connect these two sides?

I don't know.

Do you?

Latest jobs report

Why do we even do these things anymore?  Seriously, these reports are just a confirmation that the economy is in the toilet, right where Obama wants it.

Every economic report is, actually.  And, fair-minded economists actually analyze the data, as if that would help.

The economy added 74,000 jobs in December and grew at a rate of 2%. Obama and his supporters go, "See!  Things are great!  The economy added 74,000 jobs and 2% growth!  Things are going swell!"

But, do they know that the economy SHOULD be adding 350,000 or so more jobs and should be growing at a rate closer to 5%?  Of course not, nobody knows that except geeky, number-type people, like me, who look it up.  (Those were Reagan-esque numbers btw)

Obama just goes on his tour, saying the exact same thing that he has said for 6 years and his supporters go, "Yeah!  Everything is great!  See, he said so."  The lazy, liberal media goes right along with it and we keep right on flushing ourselves down the crapper.

But, whenever Obama talks you and I hear Charlie Brown adult talk, "Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah."  And, we know exactly what it means.  It means that Obama is a complete genius and he has gotten every single thing that he has wanted on his path to transforming America.

First, demonize success.  How can you possibly convince half the country that they don't have enough, need more and they need to take it from someone else?  Easy, demonize success.

Next, make student loans easily accessible and unlimited.  Now, after 5 years, we have straddled our youth with debt that they could never hope to repay.  In one easy stroke of the pen, Obama has taken away the hope of our youth.

Demand higher wages for workers.  This has all sorts of nifty consequences - lots of low wage workers lose their jobs and go on unemployment benefits, the prices of cheap stuff goes up which squeezes the middle class and it starts class warfare!  The evil greedy employer makes too much and should pay poor Joe Worker more.

What about our greedy government?  What about "evil dictator" who takes 4 million dollar vacations while preaching that we aren't paying our "fair share."

When a small wave of people wake up to what you are doing, be sure to use the most powerful agency in the government to punish them and crush them like bugs.

Oh!  Send our military into harms way, but don't have any real interest in it.  I mean, after all, war is so boring.  It's not like it is a party in Vegas with Jay-Z or anything cool like that.

Ok, we have all been down this path before, many times.  Finally, 6 out of 10 Americans can see that Obama is lying, about everything.

What about those other 4 people?!?  Have they been living in Saddam Hussein's bunker?  You would have to be living in a hole to not know that this guy's shorts need a serious fire extinguisher.

Anyway, I am here to tell you the truth - Obama's tax-hiking, regulation-strangling, middle-class destroying policies are killing the economy.

But, you didn't need an economics report to tell you that.

Did you?

Equality

Why do liberals hate it?

Seriously, they love:
1. Royalty
2. Self appointed Hollywood "royalty"
3. Unions
4. The government and
5. Every conceivable policy that promotes and creates inequality


Liberals HATE: the Judeo-Christian ethic, which is founded upon the belief system that a loving God, who cares for us, made us in his image and we are all equal.  And, they hate capitalism, the greatest equalizer the world has ever known.

There could not possibly be a greater system of inequality than royalty.  It is the idea that someone is infinitely better than someone else and the greater person was chosen by God.  Liberals LOVE royalty.

They are also totally obsessed with Hollywood stars.  These people are no different than you and me. They work hard, some have gotten really lucky and they are very rich.  But, to hear liberals tell it, Hollywood stars are actually BETTER PEOPLE.  Nonsense.

When I hear a Hollywood liberal talk about greed, I just want to cry.  Or spit.  What could be more greedy than taking an outrageous salary with no regard, whatsoever, to the amount of money the movie makes?  If Brad Pitt gets paid $20 million for a movie and the movie only makes $15 million, do you think he cares?  (Some huge stars do profit share, making an even larger, outrageous salary.)  But, what could possibly be more unequal than a movie set?  Brad is making $20 mil, how much is the guy who cleans his trailer making?

Liberals love unions!  Unions are the perfect little socialist, utopian societies.  (See my post about 4th grade history and the industrial revolution.) Although they served a good purpose before, now, unions are job killers, not job creators.  The unions bosses get rich off the backs of the workers.  Liberals are supposed to hate that.  But, nope, they absolutely love unions.

Liberals, as you very well know, love the government and every conceivable policy that has ever been thought up by the liberal mind to create inequality.  Raising taxes doesn't necessarily make the rich poorer.  The rich take their money to places with lower taxes, like Texas.  The poor get more money, sure, but it comes, in large part, from the MIDDLE CLASS.  So, the great "equalizer" taxation doesn't actually make those evil rich people poorer.  It just makes middle class people poorer so that they look more like the lower class.  When liberals get every possible thing that they want, everyone is poor and you get Detroit.

Liberals HATE the Judeo-Christian ethic.  We are all equal.  We all have the same chance to work hard, do our best and live our lives to our fullest capability.  Liberals hate that.

They also, as you very well know, hate capitalism.  For some reason, making money is inherently evil to them.  But, taking money from some people and giving that money to other people is totally fine.

The reason that liberals love what they love and hate what they hate is because they, wait for it,

WANT TO BE GOD.  They want to decided what you eat, wear, where you work, how much money you make for doing it.  They want to decide what kind of health insurance you have, which doctors you see.  They want to tell you what to believe, what is good for you.  Why?  Because they know better than you.  You are too stupid to figure it out yourself.  So, the government needs to tell you.

But, just remember, when the government is in charge of everything, you have communist Russia and Nazi Germany.  These were the most unequal societies ever to exist on this planet.

What next?  Obama's America?

Ariel Sharon

He who watches over Israel slumbers not nor sleeps - God

I can't believe the hate filled anti-Semitic rants that people are posting on Twitter about the death of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.  I couldn't continue reading them and there is no way that I will repeat them.

Don't people know that we are on the same team?  Israel is on our side, people.  We stand with Israel, not terrorists.  I understand that Sharon wasn't perfect, like Obama.  He made some fantastic choices and some odd ones, like handing Gaza over to the Palestinians in 2004.

Marginalizing one group of people is exactly what Hitler did.  Just a few years ago, we all hated Hitler.  What happened?  Once you say that one group of people is stupid, evil and unworthy, it is just a hop, skip and goose march to war with that group.

Of course, if you have the foresight to disarm the populous, then it isn't really a war.  The government can come in and take property and people by force.  No one can defend themselves.  That is exactly what Hitler did - disarm, a propaganda war against Jews and then a whole-hearted attempt at annihilation.

Hollywood gets it, sometimes.  In Harry Potter, the evil wizard Voldemort is trying to rid the wizarding world of "mud-bloods."  The mud blood is a witch or wizard from a non-wizard family.  They call mud bloods "filthy."  Next step, evil leader takes over to cleanse the world of all filthy mud bloods.

When we don't learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it.  And, I guess that it why revisionist history is so vitally important in our school system.  Otherwise, the White House would be overrun with angry 4th graders demanding to know why the president violates the constitution.

Remember, the current progressive liberals don't have a civil disagreement with us on policies.  They call us "stupid, evil, terrorists, arsonist."  They say that people who want to lower taxes or lower out of control government spending are "holding a gun to people's heads."

This is marginalizing an entire segment of the population.  It is dangerous.  It is history repeating itself.  And, who do they have in the crosshairs?

Us.

War on poverty

We lost.

I guess that it has been 50 years since the notoriously bigoted, leftist, liberal hater Lyndon Johnson, patron saint of all progressive liberals, declared a war on poverty.

I repeat, we lost this war.

I guess that we have spent, like, 2 trillion dollars on this war.  To be sure, America's poor don't have it so bad.  Most have several color televisions, cell phones and cars.  But, is this war helping poor people or hurting them?

Before I go on and I am going to go on, I want to refer you to Charles Payne.  Just look him up, the guy totally gets it.  I am going on now, you aren't going to like it.  But, I warned you.

I read somewhere that if a person gets an education (even a high school education) THEN gets married THEN has children after getting married (note that timing, not before getting married) their chances of ending up in poverty decrease exponentially.

But, see, in our society, we can't tell people that they need to get married before having children.  That would be mean, it could hurt their self esteem and, most importantly, it would promote Judeo-Christian values.

So, young girls have learned, if they want to get out of the house and live on their own, all they need to do is have a baby.  The government will then issue her a check.  In fact, she gets a larger check each time that she has a baby.

Does this promote waiting to have babies? Uh, no. Does this promote marriage?  No, if she were married, she wouldn't get the money.

Sadly, 72% of black children born in this country are born out of wedlock.  And, the cycle continues.

How do we break the cycle?  Someone has to stand up and say, I am not going to do that.  I am going to finish my education, THEN get married, THEN have children.  That will break the cycle of poverty.

Why don't liberals want this to happen?  Why can't people just have babies whenever they want and get money from the government?  Why can't we throw away the institute of marriage, say anything goes and everything will work out?  That is the liberal way - there is no God and we are all just descended from animals.  It is the most basic, fundamental argument.  It is the linchpin in the religion of liberalism.

Why?

Because if there is a God and we are all created in his image, then all that stuff we've been doing would be bad.  In fact, it would be a sin.

So, we have seen it the liberal way - no God, we are animals, anything goes, destructive downward spiral of poverty.

Let's look at it the Judeo-Christian way.  You are a child of God.  God made you, he loves you.  He made you different from animals, he made you smarter.  Use that brain.  Once you have educated yourself (it is free in America) find a mate.  You are not an animal, driven by instinct, you are a human, made in God's image.  Marry her and commit to her for life.  Or him.  After you are educated,
with a job and a partner, then have kids.  The children are a blessing to your union, ordained by a loving benevolent God.

Can you imagine if that was on a pamphlet.  Of course, we can't have that, it would be religion.  And, we, at all costs, must marginalize as complete lunatics anyone who believes in religion.

(See all of my war on Christmas and freedom from religion posts.)

The majority of Americans used to believe in the Judeo-Christian ethic.  Wait a minute, the majority of Americans still do, but we have been programmed to believe that it is bad.  We just need to stand up for what we believe in.

Get your armor on, Judeo-Christian warrior.  Don't you know we are in a war?  And, this is one that we can win.

Just say no

I am not sure if I mentioned this, but the small town near where I grew up is one of the most liberal college towns in the country.

Hippies (real ones) came to the area because (alleged) some of the best pot in the world grows in the rich, fertile soil.

Some of the hippies put down their pipes and walked right into churches, and became front runners for the evangelical Christian movement.  That is a story for another day.

One neighbor of ours was a former hippie who became a Christian.  He lived at the end of our dirt road in, basically, a shack, with his family.  He and my mom taught high school at the same school and we gave him a ride everyday because he didn't have a car.

My mother may not know this, but that was the absolute best "don't do drugs" lesson my brother and I could have possibly had!  He would talk about his drug use and how harmful it was.  He was the only person I ever heard talk about how bad extended marijuana use was.  (In a super liberal area, you hear your English teacher praise pot regularly.) He said that he used to know things that he couldn't remember.  He would get confused.  It was scary to him and to us.  Sadly, he died at the age of 56.  Based on the things that he told us, I believe his life was cut short from extended, frequent drug use, most notably, pot.

Here is a quote from Dr. Keith Ablow about regular marijuana use:

"And research shows that marijuana is linked to a syndrome in which people have little motivation to pursue goals and interests that they once found compelling."

Dude!  No way!

Yes way.

We indoctrinate children about the harmful effects of smoking.  Every single ad about alcohol has a warning.  But, we act like there are no consequences from marijuana use?

I think that is harmful.

Don't you?

The appearance of impropriety

Ok, I am a CPA.  Scary, I know.  But, when you practice public accounting you learn about impropriety.  It's kinda funny because all of us wide-eyed accountants couldn't even understand impropriety.  So, we had a class to explain it to us.

We were all like - what?!?  People would actually do that?!?

But, we also learned that you can't even have the APPEARANCE of impropriety.  Let me explain.

When I was a low level accountant, the lowest of the low, I had to sign a form.  I had to look through my investments, which didn't take long, and let my public accounting firm know about my holdings.

For example, say I had 2 shares of Pillsbury and we audited the Pillsbury account, I would disclose that information.  Then, they wouldn't put me on the Pillsbury audit.

Make sense?

We were held to a high standard.  When we audited companies, we wanted to be sure that there wasn't even an appearance of impropriety, to the point that the lowest accountant on the account couldn't even hold a few shares of a major, publicly traded company.

The reason I mentioned all this is because the enraged Obama is keeping his promise (snort) and getting to the bottom of the IRS targeting his political opponents.  Obama promised to get to the bottom of this scandal in May of 2013.

The department of justice has just announced their appointment to head up the investigation.  Whew! The appointee is Barbara Bosserman.  Bosserman has donated $6,000 to Obama's campaign and to the DNC.

This is a conflict of interest.  This is impropriety.

The funny thing is that Obama doesn't care.  You can call it "the fox watching the hen house," conflict of interest or a complete joke.  Whatever you call it, it is absolutely ridiculous that a supporter of Obama would be in charge of "getting to the bottom" of the IRS scandal.

Expect another report that is about as true as the New York Times "report" on Benghazi.

Bridge over Troubled Water

I am sure that you have been sitting there all day waiting to hear what I have to say about New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and his bridge scandal.

Well, even if you haven't, as you know, I am going to tell you anyway.

As you can see in my previous post, the governor's office should NOT have closed down the George Washington bridge for political retribution.

Political retribution - remember that - we will come back to that in a minute.

And, Christie's staff shouldn't have lied about it.

Lying - hmmm - hold onto that thought, too.

But, in my humble opinion, here is what Christie did today and he did it right:

1. He apologized.  Now, I know that we have heard a lot of apologizes from a certain politician lately.  But, those apologies were insincere.
2.  He took responsibility for the mistake.  Has Obama ever taken responsibility for anything?
3.  He actually did something about it.  Christie's advisor, Bridget Anne Kelly, was fired today.  She wasn't put on paid administrative leave, she wasn't promoted, she didn't "retire from public office to spend more time with her family."  That is code, btw, for a ticket to Cabo.
4.  He actually spoke to his political opponent.  I mean, he justed walked out of the Fort Lee mayor's office, like two minutes ago.

Now, let's compare this response to some other policitian and some recent scandals, shall we?

First of all, I in no way whatsoever equate closing a bridge in Fort Lee, NJ with the murderous, negligent and tyrannical policies of the Obama administration.

Second, I wish that the clever reporters at the New York Times would use their investigative journalism skills on both sides of the aisle.  Ah, I can dream can't I?

Can you imagine how much better informed the electorate would be?  Of course, more people would vote Republican and they would lose elections.  But, would that be so bad?  Would a level playing field really be so awful?

Ok, the IRS under the Obama administration, led by Lois Lerner, has been torturing political opponents of the president since 2010.  Lois Lerner refused to testify before congress and now she has retired, with full benefits.

Obama has lied about so much stuff that his pants are currently engulfed in flames.  Nothing has happened to him or anyone in his administration.

Obama has feigned outrage about the host of scandals that have plagued his administration his entire second term.  But, he has never done anything about it.  No one has ever been fired.

Can you see a difference in Christie's response today and Obama's response to all of his scandals?

The New York Times reports...

That Governor Chris Christie may have been involved in closing down the George Washington bridge in September.  A main thoroughfare from New Jersey to New York City, the closures caused massive delays and huge problems for commuters.

Christie has denied having any involvement in the bizarre lane closures.

But, here is the reason I am writing about it:

The New York Times engaged in investigative journalism to uncover this potential scandal.

See how good they are at it when the subject matter involves a Republican?

If Christie did close down the bridge to enact political revenge, that was wrong.  If he did, he shouldn't have and he deserves to be watched by the watchdog media.

As we approach midterm elections and the 2016 presidential election, I am sure that we can expect a lot more investigative journalism from the NY Times, as long as it hurts Republican candidates.

It must be just exhausting to report both sides, right?  And, it is so hard. I mean how can there be any scandals to uncover when the president is liberal?

Oh, yeah:

Benghazi,
The IRS
The NSA
Obamacare
The website
The lies about Obamcare and the website
Spending money to close down open air monuments, which are free to the public, to keep out American citizens because the government was partially shut down for 17 days.  Spending money to pay security guards and police officers to keep octogenarians out of the very monuments meant to honor them.  How petty is that?

We'll just ignore those.

Great job on the investigative journalism, NYT.

Rodman recap

I couldn't understand what Dennis Rodman said yesterday in his mindless rant on CNN to Chris Cuomo.  The hair dryer was on (see climate change post) and he was using that weird voice.  Late last night, after getting the pipe going again, I actually heard what he said.

Rodman was asked if he will use his influence with manical dictator Kim Jong Un (who most recently made world news by feeding his uncle to a pack of wild dogs) to secure the release of jailed Christian American Kenneth Bae.  Rodman went ballistic on Cuomo, who did an admirable job in the face of pure lunacy.

Well, let's just post the whole quote:

"Kenneth Bae did one thing," (an angry Rodman shouted, as he waved a cigar at the camera.) "If you understand what Kenneth Bae did. Do you understand what he did in this country? No, no, no, you tell me, you tell me. Why is he held captive here in this country, why? ... I would love to speak on this."    

And, he said all that in a weird, gravelly, faux-dictator kind of voice.

Um, I know why he was jailed.  You probably know.  Bae was jailed in North Korea for being in the country and also happening to be a Christian at the same time.

But, I don't think that Dennis Rodman knows that.  Do you?

The good news is, I haven't heard anyone praising Rodman for his "cultural exchange" ahem efforts.  So, that means that we haven't gone completely off the deep end.

Clearly, Rodman has.

The Ten Cannots


  • You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
  • You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
  • You cannot help little men by tearing down big men.
  • You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
  • You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
  • You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money.
  • You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
  • You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.
  • You cannot build character and courage by destroying men's initiative and independence.
  • And you cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they can and should do for themselves.

That whole climate change thing

Sorry I didn't get to this sooner, I spent a good part of the day with a blow-dryer trying to unfreeze a pipe that seems to have escaped proper insulation.

The point is - it is cold - really cold.  I understand that it is colder than it has been in 20 years.  Someone told me that today as we were snickering about the global warming scientists being stuck in Antarctica for a week.

Snicker, snicker.

Climate change, fear-mongering lunatics are saying that the COLD temperatures now gripping the nation are the result of GLOBAL WARMING.

Did you catch that?

They are actually saying that the "polar vortex" is opening and the warming of the polar ice caps causes the vortex to make the cold air go whooshing down to us, causing the cold temperatures.

Hunh.

Ed Schulz even seemed to be blaming the cold on Republicans.  Of course, it is our fault!

So, global warming is causing record breaking freezing temperatures.  Global warming is causing my pipes to freeze.  I am glad that we got that cleared up.

Aren't you?

Even lower

Did anyone watch the inauguration of the new New York City mayor, Bill de Blasio?

OMG!  Why are liberals so negative?  And rude?  Do they have no scruples?

The progressive liberal stood there and trashed the former mayor, Michale Bloomberg, while he was sitting right there.  He and other speakers called NYC "Dickensian" and a "plantation."

What?!?  Are you kidding me?!?

Why are liberals so upset?  Well, I guess that their policies are really getting everybody down.  But, why don't they see that the very policies that they love cause the inequality that they loathe so much?

Every major city that is crumbling, failing, and going bankrupt is a literal Petri dish of liberal policies.  The utopia that is created by decades of NO CONSERVATIVE POLICIES WHATSOEVER is Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland and soon to be New York City.

Oh, that is the other thing - he ranted (hey, just like me!) on and on about income inequality.  Does anyone actually believe that the government can solve income inequality?

I know what can solve income inequality - capitalism. Please see my previous 150 or so posts.

More random thoughts

I can't believe that I am actually typing this, but I sorta respect what Russian President Vladmir Putin had to say about the terrorist attacks in Russia leading up to the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

He said that the "terrorists" (note use of word terrorist) would be "annihilated."

I think that is a good way to handle terrorists.  First, call them terrorists.  Then, promise annihilation.  People respond to a strong leader who knows what he wants.

We have a sniveling, snarky, lying, double-talking weasel in the Oval Office.  You don't get as much respect for someone like that.

You know?

Speaking of sniveling weasels, what is the deal with Dennis Rodman?  Why do athletes and stars fall in love with cruel communist dictators?  Think about it, Jay-Z and Beyonce recently got the first class tour of Cuba.  Why don't they know that Castro has been a maniacal tyrant since taking over in 1959?  Danny Glover was all in love with Cesar Chavez.  He was also a cruel communist dictator.  But, Glover just loved him!  Why does this happen?  Why does the media allow this to happen?  Why don't freedom lovers, America lovers and the media expose these people for how foolish they are being?

Oh, yeah, because the media loves communism.

I am totally distressed that unemployment benefits are being extended for 3 more months.  That is even for people who have been collecting government benefits for 2 years.  I know, sometimes people need a hand.  (See previous posts.)  But, this isn't a hand up, this is a hand out.  After not working for two years, a person could become dependent on that aid.  That could discourage someone from even looking for a job.  You know?  Rewarding NOT working is NOT a good idea.

I am also totally distressed about the fall of Fallijah into the hands of Al Qaeda terrorists.  We sent troops over there and fought for Fallujah's freedom.  Now, since Obama abandoned Iraq, it took just two short years for Fallujah to fall back into the hands of terrorists.

These failures at home and abroad are even more evidence of Obama's complete incompetence.

And, I haven't even mentioned Obamacare in this post.  Not once.

Are you distressed?

And BTW, I wanted to follow up on MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry's apology to the Romney family.  Her apology seemed sincere, heartfelt and I think she was tearing up.  (Of course, Romney publicly accepted her apology with grace.)  I am glad she apologized and I am really glad that she truly appeared to mean it.  But, I want to stress again - how have we gotten to this point?  How can we, as a society, have reached a point where it is even possible to be so crass, so rude as to make fun of a baby and the family who adopted him?  It is truly distressing.

Doing alright

Last night, as I was drifting off to sleep and thinking about happier times, I (very thankfully) realized that we are doing ok.  Despite everything that Obama is doing to hurt hard-working Americans, we just had a really nice Christmas and are doing fine.

That is saying something - the price of gas had doubled and food had tripled in the past 5 years.

But, our lives have changed quite a bit in the past five years.  We used to go out to eat, at a sit down type restaurant, once a week.  Well, we went out at least once a week.

We might do that once a quarter now.  We go out 1/12 as much as we used to.

We have to spend that extra money on food and gas, we just have to.

So, what does this have to do with anything?  Well, if millions of Americans are faced with the exact same income and a tripling in food and doubling in gas prices, don't they also have to forego things?

Eventually, Applebee's will go out of business.

Do you think that Obama cares?  No way, he and Michelle have lobster flown in every night.

People will, over time, buy fewer shoes, go on fewer trips, spend less at the mall.

Famous Footwear, Motel 6 and Bath and Body Works will all go out of business.

Does he care?  No way, he has a cobbler, the Lincoln bedroom and an aromatherapist.

American ingenuity is TRYING to forge ahead despite every conceivable obstacle from the president - taxes, regulations, fines, Obamacare.  You see restaurants giving deals so they can stay in business.

Netflix is a perfect example of an ingenious way to save people money on their entertainment.

But, that is all DESPITE the president wanting those businesses to fail.  Do you see what I mean?  Can you imagine if we had a president who understood capitalism?  The economy would grow like crazy.  More people would be lifted out of poverty because there would be more jobs and opportunity.  Lower taxes would give us all more money to spent on stuff to make our lives better.  That would translate to higher earnings for companies and more revenue for the government.

Capitalism would even help the government!

Why don't liberals know this?

And, they call us stupid all the time.

Well, we really are doing alright and, for that, I am thankful.  But, we could all be doing so much better!

Clear and Present Danger

Last night, my husband wrestled the remote from me and turned on "Clear and Present Danger."

Remember that movie?  It was made in 1994. Ah, a simpler time, when Americans were good and people who killed Americans were bad.

In the movie, the president of the United States sends an elite military squad to kill a Mexican drug lord.  He does it for revenge, the drug lord killed one of the president's friends.

The mission doesn't go well and the president can't tell anybody about it, so he leaves the military guys there to die.

Dr. John Ryan (Harrison Ford) finds out about it.  Along with Willem Defoe, he rescues the surviving men.  When he returns to Washington, he confronts the president and says that he will report the president to the Senate Oversight Committee.

I snorted.

The president, rather arrogantly, says that the scandal will never make it all the way back up to him and calls it the old "Potomac two-step."

In true, post-cold-war, America-butt-kicking style, Ryan says, "Mr. President, I don't dance."

I am sure that in 1994, my hair was teased up to the ceiling and I probably cheered in the theater, with the rest of the Americans, when he said that.

The end of the movie shows Jack Ryan being sworn in before congress to give his testimony.  The music swells and it is filled with hope.  He is going to tell the truth - the truth will be heard.  The person who did something bad will be punished.

Oh, what a difference 20 years makes.

So, now it is 2014.  Our attorney general is currently in contempt of congress for lying and refusing to answer questions.

Lois Lerner, who tortured political opponents with her power, plead the 5th before congress.

Kathleen Sebelius, the head of the entire botched Obamacare nightmare, has been unbelievable snarky and rude to congress.

Hilary Clinton infamously yelled at congress that it doesn't matter about Americans dying.

And, as you know, the Obama White House has done absolutely everything to cover up its lies about Benghazi.  He left 4 men to die and went to Vegas for a fundraiser.

I said this before, but when I was looking up the names for a previous post, I saw our ambassador, after he had been tortured and drug through the streets by terrorists.  A simple search of AMBASSADOR STEVENS pulls up that picture.  Every American should see it and remember it.

Vote for another cowboy.  An America-loving, free-spirited, Christian man who cares deeply about this country and its citizens.  Liberals called Reagan and Bush stupid.  They did it all the time.  They weren't stupid, they just weren't progressive liberals.  They believed in freedom, limited government, low taxes.  They knew that government wasn't the solution, government IS the problem.

Government needs to get out of the way and let us get back to being the greatest country on earth.

After all that has gone on the past five years, do you really think that government is the solution?  Or, are you starting to see that government is the problem?

Foundation for a better life and Lynne Stewart

The other day, I was surfing around and looked up the Foundation for a Better Life.

Have you ever seen their ads?  They have been around for a while, since early in the 2000s.  They have (cheesy) little vignettes that promote values like honesty, integrity, gratitude.  They show a child sitting with a new student at school when mean kids won't.  They show a dad and daughter hugging before she heads off to college.  They show people doing nice things for other people.

But, I haven't heard much about this organization and have not been able to find anything out about it.

The ads remind me of the Mormon ads from the 1980s.  Do you remember those?  Cheesy, but effective and they promoted a good moral.

The foundation is funded by a Christian (he is a Presbyterian) and the president is a Mormon.  But, I mention all this because as I was looking it up, I found an article about the nefarious intentions of this group.

In the article that I read (from 2010) the writer had to admit that honesty and integrity are good things.  That is good.  I am not totally sure that the left embraces honesty and integrity.  But, I digress.  The writer was really upset, though, because the nefarious purposes of the foundation were hidden - the foundation proponents are "Christian, right-wing and anti-gay."

Evil!  There was no evidence of anti-gay sentiment anywhere.  I don't know if the writer just assumed that the people are anti-gay because they are Christian.  But, I am offended.

The writer was seriously upset because the people who founded and monetarily support this organization that promotes GOOD VALUES are Christian.  The writer is a Christian-ist.

Ok, so that brings me to Lynne Stewart.  Stewart was the attorney for convicted terrorist Omar Abdal-Rahman.  You may know him as "the blind sheik."  Abdal-Rahman bombed the World Trade Center, has killed gobs of people here and in Egypt with his terrorist plots and was praised by Osama bin Laden as a mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks.

Only in America could you find a lawyer who would hate her own country enough to defend this man.  But, Stewart did.  After Adbal-Rahman's conviction, he wasn't able l to send messages to his terrorist organizations anymore.

Aw!

So, Stewart, being compassionate, decided to start taking messages to his terrorist links for him.  Let's be clear, this American woman transmitted messages from a convicted terrorist imprisoned on US soil to his terrorist organization.  The transmission of these message led to an attack in Egypt that killed 30 people.

Lynne Stewart was convicted for these crimes, thank God, and went to jail in 2010.

She was just released from jail.  She is 74 and has stage 4 cancer.  She is expected to live 18 months.  And, now she is totally free to continue aiding and abetting terrorists.

She is not nefarious AT ALL.  She stands on every street corner loudly proclaiming that terrorists are "freedom fighters".  She will take any bullhorn to scream that America is evil.  She isn't hiding her agenda at all.  And, yet she is praised, even released from jail after committing atrocities against our country.

See?

We are living in a world where we blast Christians for being: kind, honest, decent and, well, Christian.  But, we praise murderers, liars and terrorists.

Why are we doing this?
I really don't know where to start.

I guess that there is hope that people are waking up across the country, realizing that Obama is a socialist dictator, and tiny steps are being made to stop him.

But, some of the things he is doing are absolutely unbelievable.  Here are a few:

Obama is waging a legal battle with THE LITTLE SISTERS OF THE POOR.  Obama is totally taking the gloves off now.  He is not even hiding the fact that he is fighting against a group of nuns who are devoted to, well, helping the poor.  Wasn't Obama supposed to want to help poor people?

Using the power of the federal government, Obama is insisting that Catholics violate their religious beliefs by providing contraceptives, abortion pills and abortions because of Obamacare.

In 2009, in a speech at Notre Dame University, Obama pledged to make special exemptions from Obamacare for Catholics.

If you like you plan, you can keep your plan...

Oh, sorry.

The point is, he lied, again, period.  And, he is suing the Little Sisters of the Poor.

Ugh.

In California, an illegal alien has just become a licensed attorney.  What is it with liberals?  Have they never travelled?  Have they never been to other countries?  No other country in the world lets illegal aliens become attorneys and practice law.  Because, you know, they are, um, like BREAKING THE LAW!

It turns out that people aren't really falling for the gun control thing, either.  People seem to understand that the second amendment is to PROTECT US FROM A TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT.  If we disarm the public, only criminals will have weapons and crime will increase.  The government can also take our stuff if we are unarmed.  Anyway, since Obama isn't having as much luck tightening gun control laws as he would like, he is going to increase background checks by executive order.

The whole NSA spying on EVERYONE isn't working out really well, either.  It turns out that people don't like it.  So, Obama is appealing a ruling that limits his spying capabilities.

And, you are paying for all of Obama's litigation.

I guess that in the mainstream media it is being under-reported that the scientists stuck in the ice were proponents of global warming.  So, I want to make this perfectly clear.  The scientists who were stuck in ice for a week were in Antarctica for the express purpose of proving global warming.  They got stuck IN THE ICE.  It took over a week and three ice breakers to rescue them because the ice was too thick.

Yet, Obama still passed climate change legislation.  This will cost billions and further strangle our stagnant economy.

Taxes, regulations, executive orders, there is no end to the ways that this man dreams up ways to destroy this country.

I am sick of it.

Aren't you?

J School

This is probably TMI, but I went to journalism school.

Yes, I know that it is shocking and, let's face it, all evidence to the contrary, I earned a master's in journalism from a reputable school.

Here is the reason that I mention it:

Reporting by media outlets is OUTRAGEOUS.

The New York Times recently ran an article.  In it, the NY Times is supporting the Obama administration's infamous lie that the terrorist attack on Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 was conceived and perpetuated due to a video.

We all know, with certainty, now, that the attack was a terrorist attack.

In journalism school, you are TAUGHT to research.  You get an "F" in news reporting if you misspell someone's name.  I, and 90% of my blogging colleagues, would get an "F" for our typos.

I would hope that in journalism school a person would get an F for turning in a paper that completely disregards facts, that poses only one side of an argument and postulates theories that have been proven to be false.

But, maybe they don't do that anymore.  I don't know how someone can graduate from journalism school, get hired by the New York Times and then publish an article that is so egregiously false.

It is sad, it is a little bit scary.  The watchdog media looked the other way in 2012 and (we now know) literally altered the outcome of the presidential election.

When will we demand honesty and integrity from the media?  We have freedom of the press for a reason - TO PROTECT US FROM A TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT.  It is not the other way around.  The media is free to protect us - not to protect a dishonest president.

I don't think they are doing that.

Do you?
