Statement from the Candidate

In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

Urgent Letter To Our Representatives in Washington

Our spendthrift and Constitution-hating president must be told to "Go To Hell" for demanding that he get the right to raise the national debt limit as he sees fit.  This effort to get carte blanche spending rights proves that this fool man has no intention of ever cutting spending.  He is intentionally trying to bankrupt our nation and bring it to its knees, and he must be stopped!

No tax increase.
No debt limit authority.
Halt the EPA regulations.
Say "NO" to United Nations taxes on carbon usage.
Stop spending.
Obey the Constitution.

Obama's Tax-Payer Bracket Creep and Your 401K Bullseye

Obama campaigned on taxing the top one percent of earners.  Now that he's safely in office again the concentration for taxation has moved to the top 2 percent of earners, and you can expect that he'll soon be taxing 100 percent of wager earners in his desperation for more and more of "other people's'" money to allow him to spend the additional trillions of dollars (and these are new trillions, in addition to the trillions he's already burned through) that he wants to waste.  And when he gets through destroying incomes and the economy with his taxation policy, he'll then come after any accumulated wealth, in the form of savings, stocks, bonds and 401K/IRA funds.  His policy is: First tax the income, then confiscate the wealth.

So our  faithless, lying president just used his politically feel-good campaign to tax the highest earners as a way to get uninformed, envious voters to accept the proposition of raising taxes to support all of his out-of-control spending, and once that base-line is in place it's easier to push the notion (and the necessity) of having to raise taxes on all workers, because the top one percent don't make enough money to support Obama's profligate spending habits.

This fool man must be opposed by Republicans.  We must forget the current foolishness about who will be "blamed" for policy decisions and do the right thing, for ourselves and for our children.

Our Unconstitutional President

We all know our president is a liar who has repeatedly abused the Constitution by doing things specifically denied to him under that document.  Now consider that this same man, in 6 weeks, will swear on a Bible to "protect and defend" the Constitution.

We know right now that this pledge will be broken within minutes of his making it. If our nation is to survive we must find a way to block this dishonest man from lying to us on inauguration day.  I encourage everyone to contact your Senators and Representatives and make the case for denying Obama the insult to our nation of making another dishonest pledge.  Does not the House of Representatives have impeachment powers?  And can they not hold hearings as to whether he has broken his current oath, and if he makes it again, given his dishonorable history, can they not have discussions about his ability to serve after repeatedly lying to us?

Our nation can't survive another 4 years of Obama and his Unconstitutional behavior, and although I fear our weak-kneed Senators and Representatives don't have the courage of any real convictions about Constitutional matters, we must make our sentiments known to them and hope they will raise a fuss about this critical matter.  Obama is a disaster and the Supreme Court is packed with too many people who are opposed to Constitutional rule, so we can only hope our elected representatives can be convinced to defend us from an evil ruler.  It's our last hope as a free and sovereign people.

Don't Even Think Of Nationalizing Our 401Ks and IRAs

After 30 years of realizing that our government would eventually overspend, over-borrow and go broke, leaving Social Security high and dry and penniless and leaving those who are uninformed enough to depend on Social Security with no income and no reserve to fall back on, many who saw the future as it's currently playing out began to invest in employer 401(k)s and private IRAs.  We put large percentages of our incomes into these vehicles so we could be independent of the government when it finally crashed and left Social Security people with nothing.  Because of the amounts of money we diverted from our incomes to our savings for the future, many of us lived very simply.  We did not drive the newst cars and we raised our families in very modest homes; in other words we practiced discipline and spent frugally for many years to accumulate the relative wealth that now resides in our 401(k) and IRA retirement plans.

Now along comes our government (can you say Barack Obama and his Democrat/communist pals?) , itself broke and having to borrow 60 percent of what it over-spends from foreign governments, and we learn that the Treasury and Labor Departments are devising ways to take the money we've saved and invested and roll this final, capitalism-based source of real value, into the government's coffers in order to support Social Security and welfare for those who need it "more", for those who have "less", than we investors do.  And when this final multi-trillion dollar pile of actual wealth is sucked into our wasteful government, and those of us who saved for the future are reduced to living on hand-outs from Obama, what will become of our society?  There are zero dollars in Social Security, we owe trillions of dollars to enemy nations that have loaned us money knowing our wastrel government would eventually go bust, our nation's credit rating has been down-graded under the Obama Administration, and the dollar is about to be replaced as the unit of exchange for internatonal dealngs (if you think a gallon of gas is expensive now, wait until this disaster happens), and our own government is trying to rape its citizens by taking their hard-earned and harder-invested money and leave us with nothing.

And to add insult to injury, the government is stating that the reason they are justified in taking this money is that it was tax-deferred and now the government needs the money too much to let us continue to keep and invest our own money on a tax-deferred basis, they must now tax 100 percent of our incomes because of their need.  Our incomes now belong to the government and we have no say in how it's spent. Obama said he will only raise taxes on those making over $250.000 (the rich, remember?), and now comes a tax on absolutely everyone who has managed to save some of their own money to be used for their own futures.  I can only ask: why is it only now, with the Obama Administration running trillion-dollar deficits and the national debt increasing enormously, that we need to take this draconian step and take people's own money from them?  I think it's obvious that it's America's welfare state and its refusal to stop spending and going further into debt that makes this step seem necessary.  Private property means nothing any more; the Constitution means even less.  Just as Communist and Fascist states in the past have destroyed the lives of their citizens, so our government is making the same moves that will destroy our pleasant lives and reduce us all to poverty and dependence on government hand-outs.  And the real insult to the mentality of our ruling class, and they aren't smart enough to understand it, is that they've been telling us for years why we must trust government for our income and retirement and not trust the evil capitalists and their undependable stock and bond markets for any value in our lives, and here they are, demanding that we bail them out with the value of our 401(k)s and IRAs, which represent capitalism and capitalism's promise more than anything else can.  They now want capitalism to bail them out of the socialist mess they've cause.  And when this money is gone, what will be left of our nation?

If our ruling class thinks they saw a large and angry crowd turn out in Washington to protest Obamacare on September 12, 2009, they haven't seen anything if they proceed with this 401(k) scheme.  They'd better not try.  Our President has let us down on spending and borrowing, the Supreme Court has let us down on Obamacare, and if our elected Representatives and Senators let us down on this issue there will be hell to pay.

Is Wealth Evil?

If wealthy people are evil and selfish, as Obama and the Dems claim (even though they themselves are wealthy), then how can this evil wealth be so desirable to government?  Is the money bad in the private hands that earned it but good in the government hands that took it from the earner?  How can the government lust after this money by trying to tax the rich at an increasing rate, and still proclaim that the possessor of the wealth is selfish, while at the same time we hear Obama campaign to gather as much as he can of other people's money?  In fact the government appears to be prostituting itself with its insatiable lust for more money, and its inability to stop spending.

At the same time that Obama and the Dems bad-mouth the wealthy for having money, they make every effort to take all the money they can from them.  I would suggest that people with wealth will spend their money more productively than the government can, and private expenditures will benefit the nation (and thereby generate additional wealth and value) more than the government using the money to support people who will not work to support themselves.  In fact, the government is the destroyer of wealth, not a creator of it, and as it takes money from the earners it is reducing the pile of wealth that it is at the same time confiscating, and when the rich are penniless, where will the government go for more cash?

Money in private hands means it was earned in exchange for goods and services rendered in the free market, by willing participants.  This is the same as saying the wealth was earned by the possessor of it: he did build that!  But money in government hands is money that was obtained under penalty of law and threat of imprisonment, and money obtained in this manner is increasingly suspect and lacking of real value because it was not earned by the government, it was simply taken.

Helping Christmas Deniers Think Right About Christmas Trees

If a Christmas denier suggests that it's not a Christmas Tree, ask them these questions:
Is it a December Tree?  No.
Is it a Winter Tree?  No.
Is it a Chanukah Tree?  No.
Is it a Nativity Tree?  No.
Is it a New Year Tree?  No.
Is it an Islam Tree?  No.
Is it a Kwanzaa Tree?  No.
Is it a Fourth Quarter Tree?  No.
It's a Christmas Tree, and has been called such for decades.

If the Christmas denier insists it's a Holiday Tree, ask these questions:
What is the federal holiday the tree represents:
Chanukah?  No.
Buddhism? No.
Year's end?  No.
Winter?  No.
Time change?  No.
December?  No.
Kwanzaa?  No.
The federal holiday it represents is Christmas, and has for a very long time.

The Perfect Storm Of Obama

The plague and pestilence that has been visited on this great nation since Obama was elected president is unprecedented.  The debt problem, the spending problem, the borrowing problem, the illegal immigration problem, the joblessness problem, the gas price problem, the executive order problem, the education problem, the welfare problem, the dead ambassador, all have been made worse or were initiated  by Barack Obama.

And keeping in mind the Obama administration's philosophy of let-no-crisis-go-to-waste, how will Barry respond to the disaster of the storm that just hit New York and the east coast?  Will he allow the presidential election to continue on schedule or will he dictatorially halt it?  Will he allow the election to be held and then have his Attorney General declare it null and void (because of supposed Republican vote fraud or the disaster and disruption of the recent storm) if he loses?

Just watch this fool man use the storm to stay in power.  "We've come too far to turn back now" he's fond of saying, and he may be right in part.  The deficit, the national debt, the quantitative easings and the fiscal cliff we are facing may be too much for the nation to overcome, but it's a cinch that Obama will only make things worse and will not even try to make them better if he's re-elected.

If we don't get Mitt Romney elected next Tuesday our demise will be certain.

The Filth That Is The Obama Administration

After weeks of Obama lying about the "peaceful demonstrators" that killed four Americans in Libya, we now have documented proof that the deaths were caused by organized terrorists who had inside information concerning the security plans, such as they were, for the Libya staff and ambassador.  And we have also learned that repeated requests for increased security by the ambassador and his staff were routinely and repeatedly denied by the State Department (can you say Hillary?) and the Obama administration. And the most upsetting and unbelievable aspect of the denials is that they were issued because Obama, following his Arab Spring initiative and his Middle East speeches criticizing America for the pain that part of the world suffers, and trying to appease the Muslim rulers there by extending the olive branch to the very people who have called for the death and elimination of Israel and the devil-America, didn't want to offend the sensibilities of these murderous groups. 

Is this understood?  Security was denied to the Libya staff and to the ambassador because Obama wanted the Libyans to "feel good" about the loving and caring Obama administration and didn't want to hurt their feelings by installing barbed wire or adding Marines with guns and bullets to the building and grounds of the American property there.  Obama knowingly risked the safety and security of the staff his administration sent there, and I submit he in effect caused the deaths of those Americans because of his idiotic liberal tendencies (much as Chamberlain caused the deaths of untold Poles, French, Danes, Belgians, British, Canadians and Americans through his appeasement of Hitler and his Peace-in-our-time stupidity).

Now let's compare what the diseased judgement of Obama caused in Libya and what Obama's policies are causing Americans domestically.  Obama has repeatedly denied our appeals to stop controlling our healthcare, stop denying our ability to drill for critically needed oil in the gulf and via the Keystone pipeline, stop the deluge of regulatory edicts issued by the EPA that are causing our economy to contract and causing record levels of unemployment, stop the Quantitative Easing and other borrowing/printing schemes that are causing our nation to go broke and will result in misery for our children and grand children when it comes time to pay these loans back, come clean on the Fast and Furious effort put forward by Obama to undermine public  sentiment for gun ownership in America.  Without exception, Obama makes decisions, whether in America or Libya, that are injurious and destructive to our lives and liberties, and four more years of this idiot man and his intentional destruction of America will doom us.

Damn this fool administration and it's criminal leaders for the death and destruction they have caused!  I demand that Congress, in its Libyan hearings beginning today, put the administration in prison for the stupidity and the pain and suffering they have caused, and that will continue years after they are gone.

Vote Romney in November and kick the Democrat bastards out!

As Usual, Obama Blames America and Americans First

Obama's comments following the killing of the American ambassador in Libya blamed Mitt Romney's comments about the Obama administration's incompetence more harshly than he did the killers of the ambassador. And then, having made his pronouncement, Obama's off on a campaign speech.  Is there no shame in this fool man?  Why not stay in Washington and make certain that other embassies in the world are safe for the workers at those sites instead of campaigning and fund-raising for your re-election?  It's a good thing he didn't have a golf game scheduled for tomorrow or he'd be out on the links while the ambassador's body lies in state.

Hey Barry, park the damned 747, stop campaigning during a national crisis and an international outrage and try being a president for a change!

Democrats Deny God And Israel

Democrats have unintentionally told us their real positions on the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution by dropping any reference to God from their party's 2012 platform.  This was not an accidental elimination of the reference to God, but was an intentional, planned, coordinated and deliberate modification to their previous platforms, and it was a pleasure watching the delegates to their convention squirm to add the reference back to the platform, and all of this while the world watched on live television.  The importance to Americans to the idea of God being central to our lives and liberty is that Republican Americans believe that God gave us liberty and freedom, and that government must have limited and defined powers over us, whereas Democrats believe in government being the guiding and controlling being over our lives. This is a critical distinction and one that Americans dismiss at their peril.

This was a great opportunity for Americans to understand the real attitude of Barack Obama and the modern Democrat party: they say all the correct, traditional, patriotic things in public, but will undermine tradition and patriotism behind closed doors with no one watching them.

Also dropped from the 2012 DNC platform was a reference to Jerusalem and its importance to Israel.  Although Obama gives lip service to being an ally of Israel (because he desperately needs Jewish votes), his own actions and the dropping of Jerusalem from the platform speaks the truth about any ties Obama feels toward Israel: he has none!

From An Empty Suit To An Empty Chair

Clint Eastwood did a great service to liberty at the Republican Convention by brilliantly defining the empty suit that is Barack Obama as being an empty chair.

Under Obama joblessness has increased; race-relations have worsened; education scores have gotten worse; family income has decreased; energy security has lessened; there's been no Constitutionally required Federal budget for well over 1000 days; the national debt has sky-rocketed; tax-payers are still owed billions of dollars by the illegally nationalized General Motors;  Solyndra-like loan guarantees are still being discovered anew and will be a burden to tax-payers for decades to come; the Gun walker scandal is getting worse; the Keystone pipeline that Obama lyingly stated he was pushing toward approval has still not begun yet, and won't begin as long as Obama is in office; regulations are still being imposed on businesses at a staggering rate; executive orders still flow at a record level, imposing unconstitutional burdens on Americans; Obamacare is still making headlines with new costs and regulations being discovered that will destroy healthcare in America and bankrupt the nation. Whether the subject is gender, race or income level, Obama has divided and impoverished America and appears to be proud of it.

In November, if Americans don't assure that the empty suit that Clint Eastwood represented with the empty chair does not become an Oval Office empty of Barack Obama, our nation will suffer for decades to come and our children will never enjoy the liberty we've known all our lives.

Joblessness and Poverty In America. Obama Built That!

Most pundits and Republican politicians blame Obama for a lack of leadership in creating the increased poverty, joblessness, misery and debt America is experiencing, but they miss the point.  Obama has been  a successful leader in creating the misery our nation is experiencing.   His every action, speech and decision was designed to generate the outcome we are living because it makes the government and Obama more powerful, it makes individuals more dependent, and it makes actions like the illegal takeover of General Motors and the unwise financial bailouts more likely and possible.  Obama has been leading in exactly the direction he intended: a weaker, poorer nation at the mercy of the more powerful central government.  He said he would transform America and he has kept his promise.  He has been a successful leader in that regard.  He accomplished exactly what he promised, and the voters in 2008 were too stupid to be alerted by his words.

And while weakening and impoverishing America Obama and his Democrat pals have enriched themselves.  The term "public service" means private enrichment to them.  Just ask yourself how a community organizer like Obama, who considers corporate America to be the enemy, could become a multi-millionaire, and how someone like Harry Reid could also amass a vast fortune without using his political influence and exercising insider information to enrich himself.  These people haven't earned their fortunes, they've become rich through the political positions they hold, which is the definition of corruption.  And they've achieved their wealth while the nation suffers.

The voters of this nation must dump Obama and his corrupt liberal/progressive buddies in the next election and replace them with true patriots who will work to make our nation free again, and stop peddling favors to their pals and punishing the true wealth builders.  The Obamas and Reids of our government are pure evil.

American Citizens Are "Endowed By Their Creator.."

The Declaration Of Independence states that  "all men are created equal, and they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights...".  The problem our nation faces today is that Democrats/Liberals/Progressives don't believe in God, so it follows that they don't believe in God-given rights.  The only God they worship is the power of government, and they truly believe that all rights flow from government to the rabble being governed, and leftists get their power by doling out money and benefits to the masses and making the citizenry more dependent on the goodies they dispense at tax payer's expense.

The defined powers statement listed in Amendment 10 of the Constitution, which Obama and members of the House and Senate have sworn to uphold and defend, is directly related to the Declaration Of Independence's "endowed" phrase, and liberal politicians have failed to uphold their sworn duties by subverting the Constitution and allowing Obama to: edict immigration law in contradiction to legislation, issue regulations via the EPA that deny people and businesses their property rights, halt drilling for oil we badly need in the Gulf, refuse oil offered by Canada, sue states that try to enforce laws that Obama doesn't favor, pushes for a United Nations treaty to tax us and take away our right to bear arms, and many other instances of deliberately denying creator-given and legislatively passed laws and freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution.

If we don't rid ourselves of the leftist scum that Obama represents and the rights curtailment he tries to impose on America, our children and grandchildren will suffer forever.

Terrifying Insight Into Obama's Mind

It was bad enough, during the 2008 primary and general election season, to hear Obama say that he didn't care that lower tax rates generate more revenue for government, because he wanted higher taxes in order to achieve "fairness", even though higher taxes reduce the revenues government needs to operate.

Then recently Obama said "if you've got a business....somebody else made that happen".  This, of course, is a rather dark message to Obama's followers, too many of whom are themselves on welfare and foodstamps and are completely dependent on Obama's "stash", and is a reminder to these people in failed circumstances that they are not responsible for their situation because they were not helped, as the "wealthy" business owner was helped, and that government will keep the goodies flowing if they vote for ole Barry.

Our fool president is not only operating in contradiction to America's traditions and to the Constitution he swore to uphold and defend, he's contradicting the experience of the entire western, civilized world, which leads the rest of the world in wealth and freedom.

Just imagine what Obama's words mean to copyrights, patents and other intellectual properties laws and practices.  Who would write the books and who would compose the music if these people could not profit from their efforts?  Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Henry Ford, among other millions of the generators of wealth and jobs, would be denied their just rewards for developing their businesses and giving the world products and services it needs and wants, if Obama has his way, and four more years as president would pave the way for his unAmerican onslaught and his totalitarian method of governing.

Obama is undermining the lives of our children and grandchildren with his big government ideas, and this fool man must be stopped in November.

U.N.-American Activities

The United Nations (along with Obama's own EPA) is trying to destroy the United States with the Rio Climate Change project and the Arms Trade Treaty, and they must be stopped by the U.S. Senate or all our lives will be adversely impacted.

Senators Roberts (913-451-9343) and Moran (913-393-0711) are opposed to the Arms Trade Treaty as well as the Climate Change disaster and should be called and told of our support for their opposition to these un-American proposals and the Obama administration for supporting both of them.

Our lives and liberties are literally on the line with these movements and Obama must be stopped before he makes America a party to, as well as subservient to, these radical proposals.  The very thought that an American president would support such radical ideas, ones that would severely hurt America, its prosperity and security is appalling and unbelievable, but that's the Obama administrations' legacy: strip us of defense and let countries like North Korea, Cuba and Russia deprive us of our ability to live and prosper.

Call the Senators now!

House Dems Perform "Wisconsin Walkout" On Holder Contempt Vote

Two years after the party of Village Idiot Nancy Pelosi corruptly forced Obamacare down the nation's throats, the House Dems recently got all incensed and offended because the House Republicans held a vote of contempt against Attorney General Holder for withholding documents needed to investigate the murderous Fast and Furious project of the Obama administration, and they all walked out of the House in a huff.

Are these fools born anew each morning?  Don't they remember the walkout of the liberals of the Wisconsin legislature when a vote came up a while ago to vote for limiting union and public employees' benefits and pay increases?  And do they not recall the shellacking the Wisconsin liberals got out of their childish maneuver?  It was similar to the shellacking that Obama's party got in 2010 as a result of the Obamacare obscenity and the general liberal push to destroy liberty, prosperity and jobs in America.

I hope Nancy rallies her troops a few more times between now and November and walks their shoes off in protest of one odd thing after another.  The "Wisconsin Walkout" is the doom of present-day liberals, and Obama is gone in 2012.  And with Obama's political passing, prosperity and freedom will return to America once again.

When The Obamanocchio Administration Ends

Given that the Obama administration is the first virulently anti-capitalist administration in American history and has taken major steps to remake  America into a socialist/communist nation, what will our dear leader do when the American people vote him out of office and stop the destruction of this great nation?  Some considerations:

What happens when the American people tell Obama that he has indeed spent more money than any other president with his trillions of new debt and continued spending, and that they want it to stop?

What happens when the American people tell Obama that they believe his government take-over of General Motors and his Obamacare legislation and both illegal and unconstitutional and they want him removed from office so he can commit no more crimes against the nation?

What happens when the American people tell Obama that his division of America along political, racial and economic lines is not acceptable and is un-American?

What happens when the American people tell Obama that his green ideas don't work and that it's impossible to get food and clothing distributed throughout the nation by powering 747s and over-the-road trucks with wind power?

What happens when the American people tell Obama that jobs will not be created when he abuses the very people who create jobs (the rich) and that they want neither the job creators, nor themselves, to be taxed any further?

What happens when the American people tell Obama that they don't want the sovereignty of the United States to be subverted by the United Nations with its Law Of The Sea Treaty nor its Agenda 21 schemes?

I believe that the Obama administration is so deep into its lies, its self-delusion and its full force attempts to destroy this wonderful nation that they will erupt when the American people vote them out of office in November, 2012.  And following that vote Obama will have nearly 3 months to issue executive orders, make secret deals with Russia, issue even more radical regulations from the EPA, make further attempts to force unionization on all companies, shut down more oil exploration and refining enterprises, waste more billions of the public's tax dollars on failed green companies, further undermine and gut the military and make secret, anti-American and anti-Israeli agreements with the Palestinians and the Islamic Brotherhood in Egypt. During this lame duck period at Obama's sunset, expect dire, violent reactions from this delusional pack of radicals.

Defrauding America's Youth: Two Immoral Policies (Among Many) Our Government Must Stop Now!

The first immoral policy that government must halt immediately is using the FICA tax of citizens under the age of 35 to go into the lie of Social Security for promised benefits when they retire. We all know that Social Security is now broke and will soon either have to stop paying benefits to those who are currently in the system, or will have to raise the age for new entries into the system, or will means test new and probably existing recipients of Social Security benefits, or all of the above. And this will happen because our nation is broke and can't afford such entitlements any longer and our government must stop lying to young workers about the impossible future benefits they are contributing to under the FICA tax. Young people must be permitted to divert their money to an IRA plan that they can direct into something that will allow them to plan for future retirement. The current system is dishonest and America must stop this dishonest, immoral practice of defrauding our children.

The second immoral policy that must be stopped immediately is the use of Ethanol (E15) as an additive to gasoline. Obama's crony capitalism is allowing Ethanol producers to get rich on the backs of the poorest and most needful of our citizens, while at the same time reducing the miles-per-gallon fuel economy we all get from a gallon of gasoline and causing an increase in general food prices.

The price of a bushel of corn has sky-rocketed ("sky-rocket" is a favorite term of Obama's and one he sincerely believes in as regards energy policy) with the EPA's edict of mixing Ethanol with gasoline, which makes many other foods besides corn increase in price accordingly, impacting poor people the hardest, and poor people in Mexico and Guatemala even harder due to their corn-based diets, as the expense of corn, now a source of much-needed fuel, increases in price. There has even been rioting in poor countries due to the excessive increase in the price of corn and the difficulty of the poorest families to be able to afford to feed their children, but the immoral Obama administration just turns its back to such suffering, and the EPA just keeps pumping out regulations to increase the percentage of Ethanol in a gallon of gasoline, which further increases the price of corn along with the costs of many other essential foods, and reduces the miles-per-gallon we get from the gasoline we buy. At the same time the EPA is increasing the demands on automobile manufacturers to increase the CAFE standards for fuel economy their vehicles will produce, in a government-forced cycle that will end, as it's intended to end, with the destruction of this already seriously wounded nation (wounded by the destructive regulations, policies, spending and borrowing of the Obama administration).

And all of the fuel costs could be turned around relatively quickly, and a family's fuel and food costs reduced, if we were allowed to access the rich and enormous supply of oil and natural gas that we have under our own soil. But Obama's EPA and his Departments of Energy and Interior won't allow this common sense solution, and instead give billions of dollars to electric car and photo voltaic cell producers who soon go out of business because their products are not a market-based solution, but are instead an invasive, big-government edict.

Our immoral government must free our young people from the lie of Social Security and at the same time free the general population from the lie of Ethanol, and allow "we the people" to prosper once more. Obama has made a mess of everything he's touched in the last three years and we must rid ourselves of this fool in the next election and reverse his destructive policies. Time is running out for a reversal on both accounts.

Obama: Putin's Man In The White House

Several years ago there was a book written with a title of "The Red President" in which the President of the United States was really working against the welfare of the citizens who elected him and was instead working for the enemies of the United States.

I was reminded of that book when I saw the video a couple of days ago of Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, head to head in an intimate conversation, in which Obama was recorded as saying "after my election I have more flexibility" with the missile defense treaty with Russia, and Medvedev said "I will transmit this information to Vladimir" (meaning his boss, Vladimir Putin). Then they shook hands sincerely and parted.

Think back to a few months ago when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was in Washington to see Obama concerning potential war in the middle east with Iran and how Obama kept Netanyahu waiting in an outer office, hat-in-hand, showing complete disrespect for one of our closest allies. And also recall at the beginning of Obama's administration when Obama said that under his Presidency Republicans would be relegated to the back of the bus, or words very close to those.

Our president shows contempt for our allies and his fellow citizens, while going out of his way to beg for more time to meet the demands of an enemy that swears to destroy us: Russia. And what exactly was Obama promising Russia with the increased "flexibility" following his certainty of being re-elected? I tremble at the question.

Obama is scum and filth. To think that an American president would ask our enemies for additional time to meet their demands while he stiffs fellow Americans and our allies is beyond anything we could have imagined when our child president was elected.

We MUST make certain that Obama is not re-elected or this nasty man will plot with more of our enemies and further hurt the security and prosperity of America. He's gone a long way toward underming our national welfare in three years, just think of the harm he could in four more years.

Steven Chu is a Failure and a Bald-Faced Liar

At a recent House Oversight Committee hearing about the high price of gasoline, Department of Energy Secretary Steven Chu was asked what grade he should be given for the way gasoline prices have increased since the Omama Administration took office 3 years ago, and our brave and humble Mr. Chu stated the his grade should be a little higher than an A-minus because he has tried hard and valiantly to keep prices of energy down.

Setting aside for a moment that every statement made by Chu or Obama since 2008 has been in favor of the reduced production of oil, coal and natural gas in favor of windmills and solar cells, and that their actions accurately reflect those sentiments and are opposed to actually giving Americans access to the supply of energy that is abundant in the United States, Mr. Chu is making the typical liberal position that he and Obama shouldn't be judged by the results of their actions and efforts but should instead be judged by their noble intentions. Mr. Chu needs to be reminded that grades are not issued based on intent, but instead are awarded by actual measurable results, and Mr. Chu gets a grade of F-minus for the disastrous results of 3 years of halting oil and gas production (which makes these necessary commodities more scarce and expensive while also killing the jobs that would result from greater production and refining efforts) and throwing billions of tax-payer dollars at wasteful companies like Solyndra which quickly go out of business but manage to give hefty donations to Obama's re-elect committees.

Liberals are always insisting that we grade them high on good intentions and forget how they've virtually enslaved poor people by keeping them dependent on government hand-outs, which barely keep people alive but insure a steady stream of Democrat voters, generation after generation, thus destroying millions of lives to poverty. Now Mr. Chu wants a good grade for the high price of gas and electricity, possibly because in the past he's stated that high energy prices are exactly what he and Obama are striving for.

But Mr. Chu is of the privileged class and is chauffeured about in a government-provided Chevy Suburban, so he is insulated from the expenses he has forced on the rest of the nation via his disastrous policies. The price of a gallon of gasoline has increased 100 percent under Obama and Chu, and they should be ashamed of themselves.

Why Is Obama A Candidate For Re-Election?

The term "public service" suggests a selfless service to fellow citizens and future generations by donating one's time to make life better and allowing citizens to enjoy more productive lives. Everything Obama has done is a contradiction to that principle. Americans are less free, their lives are more costly, the tone of daily life is more strident, racial feelings are more raw, the political tone is harsher, the continuation of social security is now in doubt, Medicare as we know it will soon end, the most prosperous nation in history is on a steep decline, the greatest healthcare system in the world is grinding to a halt, our industries and factories are shutting down and moving overseas, the price of gasoline is equal to Europe's, joblessness is at an all-time high and would be higher if the government were not cooking the books, the number of welfare recipients is at an all-time high, Obama himself has stated that he wants electric rates to "necessarily sky-rocket", his administration has stated that they want gasoline prices to increase substantially, our debt to other, and often unfriendly, nations is so high that even apologists for Obama don't know how it will ever be paid without impoverishing us, the Obama administration is serving the ends of the United Nations which is trying to take our land and tax us for being a successful nation, and Obama is personally and figuratively turning his back on Israel at its hour of greatest need against Iran. And with the increasing cost of electricity and gasoline one must not forget that Obama has halted the private production of much-needed fuel in the Gulf, Alaska and importation of oil from Canada, while wasting billions of tax-payer dollars on still-developing alternative sources of energy that remain decades away from being a replacement for oil or coal. In short, Obama has intentionally caused prices to increase for all Americans for everything they use and buy, while making the supply of these essential products more at-risk and making their lives less convenient and more uncomfortable and costly. And let's not forget that Obama's National Labor Relations Board prohibited Boeing from manufacturing aircraft in Charleston, South Carloina at a time he was pretending to be staying awake nights, losing sleep, in an attempt to think of ways to create more jobs (but of course our valiant president didn't lose so much sleep that he couldn't play golf the next day). Who would ever have believed that a President of the United States would actively work to make life for Americans more expensive and less free, setting an atmosphere in which there are fewer jobs, as a direct result of his policies of halting production of the things our society cannot live without for one day?

With all of these problems, caused or made worse by him, why would Obama seek re-election and why would the people serving that end continue working for him when they can see the problems themselves and know that the futures of their children are at great risk? Only two answers are possible:

1) They are so caught up with the celebrity status and personal gains of this administration that they can't picture the nation months or years into the future and visualize the destruction they are doing,

2) They are intentionally destroying this great nation by ripping tradition, common sense and the Constitution to shreds.

Author Edward Banfield once wrote that criminals commit their crimes because they don't have the ability to understand the future outcomes of their criminal actions and can't visualize an eventual punishment. They just commit the crime and the punishment flows without them understanding what has happened or how they got involved with the law. Most likely they think they are victims and are resentful of the law enforcement officers who arrested them and placed them on trial.

This phenomenon of not being able to see a cause and effect relationship could explain why liberals cause so much damage to personal lives and to our nation: they just do stuff (such as endless welfare, nationalized healthcare, pandering to totalitarian threats as Neville Chamberlain pandered to Germany, and as Obama is pandering to Iran and North Korea) and then wonder how everything goes to hell after they've done their best to be, and play, nice.

The second option above would suggest that they really intend to undermine America's prosperity, security and comfort and want to increase the daily cost of living to a point where everyone has to depend on government to stay fed and sheltered.

My personal opinion is that both options are true: Obamaites really want to create a situation where government becomes central to everyone's lives, and they are unable to see that future generations will suffer greatly from the destruction of this wonderful nation, that they are causing.

In short, liberals (and Obama is the main liberal in our lives at the moment) are stupid as well as evil. They want immediate personal gain and popularity but are unable to see the suffering their current actions will cause our children and grandchildren. The destruction Obama has caused in three years will be magnified enormously if he is re-elected and has four more years to block progress and prosperity without worry of having to get elected another time and without having to pretend to care about the destruction to the lives of most Americans with his totalitarian rule of the nation via executive orders and radical administrative agencies like the E.P.A.

There was a movie a few years ago titled "Not Evil, Just Wrong" that exposed the lies and destruction that resulted from liberal claims of global warming, or climate change, or whatever these fools are calling it at present. But the excellent film got one thing wrong: liberals, and the Obama administration in particular, are evil as well as wrong, and they are bent on the destruction of the lives of every one of us.

If we don't tear down the governmental utopia that leftists have built over the last 60 or so years and get rid of the Departments of Energy and Education, and the E.P.A. in particular, and if we don't defeat Obama in November, we'll never be able to regain our Constitutional protections and our children will lead very crude, impoverished lives for decades, and possibly forever.

Keeping Liberals Out Of Our Bedrooms

The old leftist complaint from the 1960s was that the government was trying to edict and control how a couple should behave in their bedroom, which complaint was largely justified. But now the tables have turned on the leftists, and it's conservatives who are shouting to be left alone concerning bedroom issues.

The big difference between the government intrusiveness then and now is that the intrusiveness of the 1960s was largely societal, mostly a state of mind and not codified in any law, whereas the invasiveness today is part and parcel of the Obama Administration and Obamacare and has the full force (and punishment) of the law, which will be fully enforced by the left so as to make people behave as they dictate.

The current situation of the government edicting that a Catholic employer must, under penalty of law, provide contraceptive care to its employees (or that an insurance company must provide this coverage free of charge) is over the top and must be opposed by all Americans who want to preserve the little liberty left to us under the Obama regime. In fact, we now know that the issue of contraceptive care is a contrived political stance intended to keep the liberal sheep in Obama's camp, because the abortion issue is losing ground with the entire nation and is not as divisive and attractive to leftists as it once was.

So far we've been unsuccessful at keeping government out of our bathrooms, our healthcare, our gas tanks, our foods and diets, our classrooms, our energy supply, our electric generating plants, and they're even controlling the carbon dioxide we exhale as part of their lies about the existence of global warming, but in November of this year we must begin rolling back big government by getting rid of Obama and his cherished Obamacare, abolishing the EPA and the Departments of Energy and Education and repealing the Financial Reform Act, or we will have no liberties at all left to defend.

As an aside, isn't it interesting that it's largely the same age group who protested anything and everything in the 1960s, who are now opposed to liberal attempts to control our lives in the 2010s under Obama? It appears true that the older we get, the wiser and more conservative we become.

Obama E. Newman: What, Him Worry?

By this time we've become used to our idiot, grinning-from-ear-to-ear, Alfred E. Newman-like president, glad-handing everyone he sees, promising to "not rest" until jobs are plentiful, while simultaneously taking credit for the Bush-era oil drilling rigs and blaming Bush for the escalating cost of gasoline, or healthcare, or housing or whatever else Obama has made worse in the last 3 years.

But ole smiley will be sure to have elaborate, expensive parties in the White House, set new records for golfing while the nation sinks in debt and joblessness, and grinning for the camera in Martha's Vineyard and Hawaii, while wasting billions of dollars on his pet, non-productive alternative energy start-ups, which have all failed at taxpayer expense. And he does all this while Americans are dying in Afghanistan because someone burned some papers, and he's allowing Iran to continue to build a nuclear weapon which they've promised to detonate on Israel.

Anyone of a certain age will recall the liberal press of the 1970s posting a photograph of a smiling Richard Nixon along with the question: "Why is this man smiling?". Today I'd like conservatives and other Republicans to ask: "Why is Obama smiling?". This grinning fool has accomplished the financial ruin of this great nation and has completed his promised restructuring of America along lines of leftist "fairness", and this destruction is certainly what he's smiling about. In November we must send him and his grinning ears back to Chicago.

The Double Standards Of Liberal "Faith"

Why is it that when conservatives/Republicans speak of matters of faith and religion they are criticized by the press and liberal politicians, and are described as imposing their religion on the nation, but when Bill Clinton (remember his "healing" prayer sessions with Jesse Jackson after the Lewinski affair became known?) or Barack Obama (he speaks of his "Christian Faith" while trying to force the Catholic Church to abandon it's long-standing beliefs and doctrine, and after sitting for 20 years in the church of Reverend Wright and listening to the hate that this man spewed from his pulpit all that time) talk about religion, the press is silent and doesn't consider their words to be at all a breach of the church and state divide. Why does this double standard exist?

It exists because the press and liberal politicians know that Clinton and Obama are lying through their teeth about their "faith", and the press admires how they can use the words of conservatives to defeat those same opponents. On the other hand liberals know that conservatives really mean and live by the words of faith they express, and the press scorns them for this middle class naivete.

So liberals improve their standing by lying and conservatives are ridiculed for stating the truth, and both sides are using very similar words, only with different meanings and audiences. There's really nothing new in any of this. Conservatives (like Rick Santorum) need to continue to speak the truth without making a sermon out of it, and a majority of voters will reward them for it in the end.

The Obamas of the world are pure evil, and they must be voted out of office before they completely destroy this great nation, regardless of the enlightened words they use to try to convince us of their so-called "Christian Faith".

Obama "Occupies" The Oval Office,The Unions "Occupy" GM

Given the unflinching gall of the Obama administration and their communistic insistence of basing everything from personal wealth to wages on a doctrine of "fairness", instead of the work and thrift it takes to accumulate wealth, what's to stop these leftists witf their occupying of wall street, and any other street, park or city they want to occupy, from turning their "occupy" movement into a real occupation (traditionally meaning one's chosen line of work or profession, but taking on a new and unconstitutional meaning with these fools being encouraged by Obama) and simply occupy people's large homes, or hotels and motels having unused or spare bedrooms and bathrooms in fairness to. and the use of, those who will not work for a living and will not provide for themselves. Using the ill-logic these leftist nuts have been using since the protests in the 60s, they could just take over and occupy anything they want and no one could stop them. After all, Obama did the same unconstitutional thing when he by-passed bankruptcy laws, gave General Motors to the unions and denied bond holders their legal rights to compensation as the company went under. Obama and the union rabble simply "occupied" GM, so they have tradition on their side. And there's international tradition as well, because the communists in Russia occupied the homes of wealthy Russians after their revolution in 1917, so Obama and his occupiers are in good company, because, after all, that experiment turned out so well for the citizens of Russia.

If our nation doesn't dump Obama this year and return to abiding by the Constitution and the rule of law, America will wither and die and our children and grandchildren will have much meaner and crueler lives than any of us have experienced.

Obama Just Keeps On Spending

I understand that the Obama administration has, or will soon, appoint a governmental advocate for illegal aliens. Who's the idiot that thought of this fool's proposal?

Setting aside that we should be deporting illegal aliens, not advocating on their behalf, I thought Obama agreed with Republicans that we need to cut expenditures and spend less money, not create more high paying jobs and spend more money on this new salary. We can't afford to hire more people and make government bigger. We should be laying government employees off and sending them home, not adding to the payroll.

If congress doesn't deny the funding for this new position they are a pack of fools. What we need to do immediately is repeal the enabling legislation for the Departments of Education, Energy and Interior, and fire the EPA in one fell swoop for declaring war on the American economy with it's never-ending regulations and controls, not hiring more liberal fools who are plotting our national demise.

The Liberals' $2 Billion School District Decertification Plan

Rush Limbaugh is fond of saying that when you investigate the most failed cities, and in this case our attention is on a failed school district, you'll discover that liberal Democrats are in charge of the failed entity. But in the case of the Kansas City school district, liberals made the citizens pay out $2,000,000,000 to finally achieve only the decertification of the district.

Liberals always want attention directed to their motives, not the outcome of their policies, so we must be reminded that liberals destroyed the Kansas City school district in an attempt to eliminate segregation, and when all is said and done, they destroyed the education of all of the students in the district, even the minority (actually they are the majority) students they intended to protect. Liberals always think they can throw money at a problem and it will fix itself, and they are always wrong. And in this case their error will impact many students for years to come. they should go away in shame for what they've done, but instead they look for someone else to "help".

So we have the desire to help under-privileged children that ends up hurting them and undermining their futures, and costing everyone an enormous fortune in the bargain. Total waste, government control and stupidity. And these are the same fools who now occupy the Obama administration and are in control of our nation's defense (cutting the military budget at a dangerous time in the world), our economy (the EPA is shutting down electric generating plants when we need them most, and Obama is denying America a new source of energy from Canada), healthcare (Obamacare has only just begun and already is costing us money and medical attention), and our children's education (need I say more about liberals and education?).

Will we get rid of the liberal scourge in November 2012, or will we allow Obama to finally end the prosperity and liberty this nation has enjoyed for over 200 years?

Democrats-The New Prohibition Party

The new prohibitionists love to just-say-no:

No, you can't keep your healthcare.
No, you can't practice your religion as you see fit.
No, your coal-powered electric plant can't continue to operate.
No, you can't buy incandescent light bulbs.
No, you can't buy the toilet of your choice.
No, you can't build on your own property.
No, you can't import oil from Canada.
No, you can't keep more of your own money.
No, your government will not abide by the Constitution.

Increasingly, Democrats, and our "just-say-no" president, are choking our nation's economy and ending our Constitutional liberties by denying us everything our free population has always enjoyed, and withholding the freedoms we used to take for granted.

But of course, being the counter-culture that they are, Democrats occasionally say "yes":

Yes, we can legalize marijuana.
Yes, we can abort a fetus at-will.
Yes, we can defecate in public and block traffic in any city we wish to "occupy".

We must not relax our opposition to the party of the left, and we must continue to push for the defeat of Barack Obama in November.

Liberal Policy Is Driven By Illogic

At a time when Obama is trying to push the Chevy Volt on the nation as a gas and carbon saver, the EPA is publishing regulations that will cause many power plants to shut down, thereby depriving the Volt of its charging current. At exactly the time we need gasoline-powered cars the most so as to have transportation during the certain brown-outs to follow on the heels of the EPA's dictates, Obama wants us to get off gasoline and onto the dying power grid. And even in those locations where there will be plenty of electric power left after the EPA edicts begin shutting down plants, the electric generating plants largely use fossil fuels to deliver the power that charges the Volt, so where is the gain?

This situation is similar to the new low water use toilets; the new toilets use less water per flush, so in order to do the same job, more flushes have to be made, so where is the water savings? Add to this illogic the fact that water is not in short supply and that the water you buy is your personal property, and you might well ask what business the government has telling you how much of your personal property you can use at any one time. The same offensive edicts are made with the new curly light bulbs: the electricity and the bulbs are your personal property, so how dare the government tell you how you should use it and the type bulbs you should buy.

Recently the Chevy Volt was reported as having a tendency for causing fires, so General Motors recalled all of the new cars to inspect them, but quickly ended the recall at the government's acquiesance stating that the Volt was no more likely to cause trouble than a gasoline-powered automobile. But that wasn't the point of the recall, which was to determine why cars sold by GM were bursting into flames and burning down owners' homes. The government was protecting GM because it's now owned and operated by the unions. Remember when the Toyota was accused of unplanned acceleration a few years ago and causing accidents? The government made a big deal of this in an effort to hurt non-union Toyota and sell more Chevys, but the Toyota scare was a lie.

I'd still like to know why the Volt suddenly bursts into flames and burns down homes, but Obama wants to cover this up and make it go away.

The Keystone XL pipeline investors seek to create a new source of energy and to create new jobs and employ people currently out of work. The aspect of the project involving jobs would seem to be one that Obama would favor because he has said numerous times that he "will not rest" until there are jobs for everyone. Of course he didn't say he wouldn't play golf or vacation in Hawaii until there are sufficient jobs, but he must be tired when he golfs and plays on the beach because he's still denying Americans jobs. And consider his loud voice when he proclaimed that we must stop our dependence on foreign, unfriendly oil, and then balance that statement with denying energy from a friendly source: Canada. But the Obama administration, when faced with the decision to allow people to live freely, is the party of NO! Investors cannot provide the energy we need, nor will you be allowed to provide employment, because not "enough" jobs will be created (the government decides when there are sufficient jobs being created, and whether they are sufficiently well paying). However the Obama administration will freely give money to Solyndra and Fisker (the Finland-assembled electric auto maker) even though their products are not wanted by prospective customers, they can't afford to do the things they state are their goals, and they're broke!

The EPA passes regulations limiting mercury everywhere in homes and businesses alike in order to prevent poisoning, especially in children (the liberals in government love to express their protection of children, except when the children are in the womb, or when they are trying to get a good education, at which time they are forced into failed government schools). But government bans the use of incandescent bulbs and force us to buy the mercury-laden curly fluorescent bulbs that will be in all homes and near all children in the event they're broken.

Open Letter of Thanks and Apology to our Good Neighbors in Canada

To the great people of Canada, I, as an American citizen, want to thank you for your offer of oil and gas products to be delivered via the Keystone XL pipeline, and to apologize to you for any offense that may have been taken by the rude rejection of your offer given by our president.

Barack Obama is a fool for rejecting a source of energy that our nation badly needs, and realizing that his decision was 99 percent politics doesn't make the decision less offensive. Didn't our child president just recently criticize America for not thinking about big projects any longer, and is this not proof that America and Canada both think big, but the American government halts all such big projects?

Given that our nation has more that 500,000 miles of pipelines criss-crossing it with few if any leak or break problems in the past, and that we need the jobs that a new project would create in the midst of the Obama depression, only a spiteful, political idiot would reject such an offer.

Occasionally liberals will offer the objection that the Keystone XL pipeline will not create "that many" jobs, but in these lean times, even 10 or 15 jobs (the Keystone project anticipates creating tens of thousands of jobs, by the way) would be a God-send to the workers and their families. And we also have to remember that no participant in the proposed pipeline has asked for one dollar of help to build it (unlike the billions of dollars the Obama administration has thrown at, and wasted, on the alternative/green energy companies that have subsequently gone broke (failed companies like Solyndra).

It has been reported that the parties to the pipeline are devising an alternate route that will make Obama's objections irrelevant, so I hope you will wait for this back-up plan so we can by-pass our child president and still do business with your wonderful nation, and make a nice profit for your companies and workers in the process.

As an aside, and in an attempt to poke a finger of logic and common sense at our liberal politicians who are attempting to increase the cost and reduce the supply of gas and oil in America, while they attempt to destroy our economy with ideas that will cause immense financial costs and real personal pain to Americans, I notice that the Democrats in Washington are trying to apply an additional tax to energy products with their H.R. 3784 bill, titled "The Gas Spike Act", which would greatly penalize gas and oil companies for their products, with these government-caused additional costs being necessarily passed on to consumers, and that this bill would allow big government to decide what level of profit is "reasonable" for companies to make and tax them for all profit over that amount. A government enforced limitation on profit is what is done during a communist takeover of a nation and is contrary to everything that has made America the most prosperous nation in the world, and would undermine the large, wealthy middle class that is the envy of the world. Additionally, the profit-tax would only add to the government's already draconian tax on gasoline, which is in large part the reason your gas costs well over $3 a gallon. If the government would get out of the way and stop sticking us with their extra charges on everything we buy, costs to our already-stressed population could be reduced and paying bills would be more easily done. But don't hold your breath until the government lessens its hold on your pocketbook and allows you to save some money. The next logical step for liberals will be the takeover of oil and gas companies by the Obama administration, and at that point our nation will be absolutely destroyed, because without market-based energy available to consumers, the costs of just trying to drive to work each day will skyrocket and the supply of oil and gas will disappear. That's what history and the Carter administration tell us that government involvement, regulation and control causes.

But be that as it may, best regards from the United States.

Obama Has the Urge to Rule

Our pleasant looking, well-spoken president seems to have developed some unpleasant tendencies of late. It appears that he thinks he's been elected to rule, not preside over a free and sovereign people, and he believes that Congress is just a rubber stamp for anything the ruler wishes to do. What is it about the term "constitutional checks and balances" that this guy doesn't get?

On October 29, 2011, Obama said "If congress won't act, I will..." when he wanted to concentrate more government into home refinance (bailing out people who could not afford the homes they bought), student loans and jobs for Veterans (he forgot that only the private sector can provide real jobs, not the government) and more heavily taxing the rich, (who ultimately provide most the the jobs our nation has).

On January 4, 2012, Obama's press secretary said that if Congress won't cooperate, Obama will take "small, medium and large" executive order actions to go around them.

On November 22, 2011, Obama claimed that every American would see "$1000 tax hikes if Congress won't act.." to extend the existing payroll tax rates (of course he called the proposal a "tax cut" though it's not. He wanted to extend the current FICA rates for only 2 months instead of the 12 months that Republicans wanted, so wouldn't his plan be less than 20% as attractive to struggling citizens as the Republican proposal? And his plan to reduce the FICA tax would be, in effect, raiding Social Security, which he and his Democrat pals have consistently accused the Republicans as scheming to do).

Obama's policies are unpopular with Americans and Congress often opposes those policies, again for purposes of checks and balances, to avoid an abuse of power, but Obama terms this constitutional opposition to be foot-dragging and claims that what he wants to do just "Can't wait" for Congress, so he plows ahead and does unconstitutional things like his recent recess appointment of a Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Under Obama this position has been made mostly irrelevant because, with the way Obama has handled the economy, there are very few "consumers" left to protect.

There are many troubling aspects to Obama's tendency to rule instead of govern, but my great fear is that when he loses, or even before he loses in his re-election effort, he'll discover a November Surprise that will require his sole attention, leadership and action, and that he would consider the upcoming election to be a distraction, so we will have to defer the election until the emergency (perhaps a nuclear Iran that conservatives have been warning about, or an attack on Israel that seems to be inevitable given the situation in the area, or the revelation that a nuclear device had been smuggled across our porous border and whose discharge is imminent) has been sufficiently addressed by his majesty, a task that could take months or years to complete.

And one must keep in mind that during the 2008 campaign Obama spoke clearly and often about the need for a Civilian Defense Force, armed and trained as well as our military and designed for use internally within the United States. And if there is any doubt where he would get the vast sums needed to arm and train this civilian force, just recall the billions of dollars of unspent and unaccounted for stimulus and TARP appropriations which old uncle Joe Biden was going to oversee, control and track that have evaporated into thin air. And also recall the additional trillion dollars that Obama has just claimed he desperately needs immediately or the nation will not survive (isn't this approach of desperation and appeal to fear getting a little thin and worn at this point?) and one can see serious storm clouds on the horizon for this great nation, with this small man as president.

Marines: Heroes For Killing, Criminals For Peeing

A photograph of Marines urinating on the bodies of Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan is all the rage in Washington and has our Lillywhite liberal politicians reaching for their hankies to help them sustain themselves during the case of vapors caused by these crass Marines. The message from the likes of Leon Panetta and Hillary Clinton is that Marines are heroes for killing and ending the lives of the enemy, but are punishable for urinating on or near them. I don't think Panetta or Clinton are thinking clearly, but are instead only taking the most recent convenient opportunity to criticize the Armed Forces and appear to be politically correct to Islamic groups both here and abroad.

To make matters worse for our nation, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta kow-towed to Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai and promised an investigation into the matter. How can an apology be appropriate to Karzai when the Taliban being urinated on are enemies of the Karzai government and were trying to kill Afghans? Karzai has no role in this and definitely deserves no explanation and no promise of an investigation. And to make matters even more dire, Karzai has announced that if the U.S. and Pakistan end up warring with one another, he will side with Pakistan. Maybe the Marines should pee on Karzai for being such a weak ally, for risking their lives defending his corrupt government and then have him turn on them at the first opportunity. I also think Panetta, instead of the Marines, should be investigated for playing nice with the corrupt Karzai and for trying to have peace talks and share an office with the Taliban in Afghanistan. The Taliban should be killed, not talked to. The Taliban are truly despicable people who will never stop trying to kill Afghanis or Americans until they are dead. Peeing on them is optional.

But I can fully understand the offended sensibilities of Washington politicians who look down their noses at the middle class schlub Marines who wouldn't know the correct cravat to wear with a dinner jacket, nor the right Cognac to select for after-dinner drinks at the country club. But what the liberals who send our young men and women (largely other peoples' children, not their own) off to war don't understand is the unrelieved pressure of the war that Marines, Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen and women face when they are sent to far-off places away from friends and family and asked to risk life and limb daily in a war that seems to have no end-point and only offers restrictions on military actions.

I hope all Americans follow this issue closely, and if the accused Marines get any punishment stronger than a talking-to and then sent back to their units, we must all throw a fit with the Obama administration. Because in an increasingly dangerous and threatening world, how do Panetta and Clinton think they will be able to get volunteers to fight our nation's wars if they punish every unthought-thru action the Armed Forces personnel take as criminal acts?

Politicians Consolidate Power and Control

All grocers want to do is feed us.

All musicians want to do is entertain us.

All electricians want to do is provide electrical convenience to our homes.

But politicians are not content with "serving" us, as they pretend to do; they insist on gaining more and more power in order to control our every move. It's true that we elect these so-called public servants, so in reality we get what we deserve, but it hasn't always been so.

Originally the citizen legislators served when needed and then returned home to their jobs and businesses to live under the laws they passed. More recently politicians operated within the specified and enumerated limits of the constitution and were content with the semi-celebrity status and the relative high pay with which they rewarded themselves.

But today's politicians, especially liberals, want to control every aspect of our lives (the amount of water we flush, the light bulbs we use, the types of cars we buy, the power plants used to generate our electricity, the type of fuel we burn in our cars, the amount of salt we eat, etc). Our elected representatives should feel shame for their laziness in voting for legislation. . The bills they write are too often vague and leave legal specifics to the unelected regulators and secretaries who finally make the laws that control our lives and undermine our freedom. Democrat Representative John Conyers once admitted know what's in the legislation he votres for when he stated that a 2000 page bill is too long and too complex to understand. So why do fools like Mr. Conyers pass legislation that only increases the power and control of the various agencies and departments impacted, and that takes away our liberties? In the future we must be more diligent and elect people to the House and Senate who will obey the constitution and begin legislating as our fellow-citizens, not as our rulers.

Nero Fiddled While Rome Burned; Obama Golfs While America is Destroyed

Our self-centered president has been dithering again while his administration and his czars are literally destroying this great nation. Whether it's an unconstitutional recess appointment, the dismantling of our ability to generate electric power for our homes and businesses, borrowing trillions of additional dollars on top of the $15 Trillion we already owe, congress not producing a constitutionally required national budget for 3 years, denying a Canadian proposal to provide us with much-needed energy or reducing our military at a critical and dangerous time, while at the same time growing government and it's control over our lives, Obama is literally destroying America. Are we just going to sit here and take this, or are we going to get our representatives in gear and stop this fool man?

We Must Restrict Government Now!

Once a nation loses its liberties there is little chance of ever getting those liberties back again without a great shedding of blood and enormous loss of life. The best example of this is Germany before World War II. The German people voted Hitler into office and then permitted him to remove one freedom after another until they were enslaved by him and his totalitarian policies. Germany was a free, wealthy, sophisticated and modern nation until Hitler began changing it for his own ends, and eventually destroying millions of lives as a result.

America is being destroyed just as Germany was destroyed, piece-by-piece, liberty-by-liberty, inch-by-inch. Americans have been so wealthy, so comfortable and so free for so long that we have forgotten the miserable existence a majority of the people of the world live, and if Obama and the EPA have their way, our own standard of living will begin to crash around us rather quickly.

Along with various unconstitutional invasions of our rights and liberties over the last 3 years (forced socialized medicine; the destruction of contract law with the General Motors and Chrysler takeovers; the Attorney General ignoring voter intimidation and voter fraud violations; the government telling a private company (Boeing) that it cannot establish a manufacturing plant in South Carolina; the government telling farmers in California that they cannot irrigate their fields for fear of harming a fish; shutting down all oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico; denying a new and much needed source of energy from Canada with the Keystone XL project), we now see an administration that is forcing the shutdown of standing, operating power generation plants which will adversely impact millions of lives immediately if allowed to take place. Add to this list the illegal and unconstitutional appointment of a new finance czar by Obama and you can see the clouds gathering immediately ahead for America if our representatives in Congress and the Senate don't get some courage and oppose this golfing, vacationing, 747-loving fool. Our constitution is under attack and we must unite to oppose this unforgivable act by the administration, or our liberties will be gone forever. God help us and our children if we are unsuccessful in our opposition to the pending takeover of this great nation.

Obama Wants To Shrink Government? B.S!

Our big government president, now in trouble during an election year, suddenly pretends to want to make government smaller and save $3 billion over 10 years. How can one keep from laughing?

I'll believe that the lying fool in the Oval Office wants to reduce big, overbearing, intrusive, freedom- and job-killing government when he proposes eliminating the EPA (which issues seriously restrictive and freedom-robbing regulations by the wheelbarrow load); or when he proposes getting rid of the Department of Education (which has destroyed education in America over the last 20 years); or when he proposes eliminating the Department of Energy (which has restricted the availability of energy in the U.S. by denying the expansion of refining and discovery efforts and has caused the price of energy to increase sharply in the last 10 years); or when he withholds funds from the United Nations (which has tried to tax the world, especially the U.S.. for our trade and our use of carbon under the lie of global warming, and has attempted to criminalize aspects of our nation's daily business).

And instead of saving a measly $3 Billion over 10 years, a plan of eliminating the agencies and departments listed above (and add the IRS, the czars and the Departments of Commerce and Interior to that list) could save easily $1 Trillion each and every year, and we'd get rid of the liberal trouble makers trying to run our lives and destroy our nation, in the process. That's $10 Trillion over 10 years in case Obama is still tracking by 10-year intervals (this tendency of Obama and the Democrats to list specific savings per 10-year periods reminds me of the Communists and their 5-years plans, but excuse me for noticing the parallel).

Obamacare and the Financial Reform Act, both signed into law by Obama, prove that the last thing this man wants is to shrink government. All evidence is that he will grow it even further if given another 4 years in office. Didn't he just ask Congress for another Trillion Dollars to spend? The man is a serious liar and must be removed from office before we're all living in hobo camps.
