The Effete Elite

Victor Davis Hanson's appraisal of the nation's cultural elites is both accurate and comprehensive.  The author starts by describing the elite rather than defining them, a prudent choice given progressives' penchant for quibbling.  He points out that they "include the academic class in the university that educates our children...[t]he upper echelons that run government departments...an entertainment cadre that oversees television and Hollywood...[and] corporate managers."

Hanson identifies elites' essential characteristics.  One "is a certain allegiance to untruth, to saying one thing and doing another."  Their rhetoric is rife with hypocrisy.  They "clamor for a green cap-and-trade revolution" rejecting compromise "with a fossil fuel near future that would transition us in a half-century or so to renewable energy."  Still, there are few elites "who live green lives."  As is the case with John Edwards and Al Gore, "the bigger and more impressive the home, the better to contemplate how lesser others use too much carbon-based power."  The green sacrifice is left to "coal miners, oil drillers, timber men...classes whose...work brings [elites] instant gratification."

The author adds pointedly that on "matters racial, it gets complicated since advocacy is one thing, living another."  Cultural elites use their 'pull' "to get their kids into college, money to live in a 'good' neighborhood, and 'networking' to marry and 'place' like others from a good background."  Elitists rarely discuss this because to live by their stated beliefs would require them to live in "the San Jose or Fresno mixed suburbs, to have their children school with the 'other'...and to marry their children to Rick Lopez or Tyrone Hiller," in the name of multiculturalism.

Cultural elites' fear of losing their money, privilege, and status by living by their stated beliefs "only heightens [their] shrill and sanctimonious demands on less blessed others to prove their morality."  Elites hide their wrong doing by accusing others of crimes that they themselves have committed.

Hanson ends with the recognition that "there is little logic among the cultural elite...the idea that taxes cause scarcity and subsidy abundance... that entitlements create dependence" is not part of the "worldview of the sheltered elite who navigate in rather protected channels and not in the open seas of the real world."  Logic, or rationally deliberating factually accurate and empirically valid information to establish the relationships between causes and effects makes elitists uncomfortable, as does exposure of the wide divergence between their alleged beliefs and actions. 

For anyone who has not yet recognized that the O-bomunist administration is dedicated to eliminating the First Amendment guarantees and prohibitions for anyone who has the effrontery to disagree with their power grabbing, nationalizing, underhanded dealings, and confiscatory taxation, read this article and follow its links.

A former head of the Federal Elections Commission points out that their proposed legislation reveals about the Corruptocrat members of Congress that they believe "they have the power to violate the First Amendment with impunity and censor the political speech of those who they believe should not be able to speak."  Free speech for the totalitarians but not for the rest of the country is a philosophy that reveals that they are simply too pusillanimous to bear being treated as they treat others.  It is sad that they do so with neither remorse nor shame.

The First Amendment is foundational to the liberty and freedom bequeathed by the Constitution.  To steal liberty is so despicable that one has to wonder as to what sort of benefits they expect to gain by willingly choosing to join the company of Mao Zedong, Pol Pot, and Joseph Stalin.

Now that they were only able to weasel through part of their agenda of selfishness and greed, Senate Majority Leader Red Harry Reid wants to change the Senate rules to aid his cause.  In but one more act of the sort of reprehensible timidity that typifies their Congressional dealings, Reid wants to eliminate the filibuster.  Since they could not win by playing according to the rules to which they had agreed, they want to change them.  There is no act so low that they will not stoop to it.  Fortunately for now, changing those rules requires 67 votes, and after the mid-term elections they will not even have 60.

In an almost universally under covered news story, it seems as though the O-bomatrons were contacted by the WikiLeaks people before the information was made public.  No one representing the White House was interested, at least according to this report from Politisite.  If true, this is either pitifully inept of this administration or another example of what many believe to be a deep and abiding disregard for our military men and women.

Finally, it seems self-defeating to allow virulently anti-American dictator-for-life Hugo Chavez to contribute openly to an organization that promotes illegal immigration.

May your gods be with you.

Charlie's Not Smiling Now

Long time Corruptocrat Congressman Charles Rangel has been hit with 13 charges of ethics violations, including that he failed to file taxes when he was "Congress chief tax writer."  When the party of government controls Congress, justice is neither swift nor certain for the in crowd.

It is reprehensibly hypocritical that the entire Mexican media apparatus is being censored by criminal cartels, and there is no national outcry by the US mainstream media.  With this much violence just over our border and the Mexican government fecklessly unable to control it, the fears of it crossing into the US are realistic.  O-buffona's contrived ignorance of smugglers bringing terrorists into the country flies in the face of this Government Accounting Office report.

How much incompetence, misfeasance, and malfeasance must we endure before Congressional leaders call for impeachment hearings?  Still, it could be unwise if he were to be removed from office; then, Biden would be president.

News flash--Syrian government: ban the burqa, support from American pseudo-feminists: not so much.

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, from unreasonable search"...except when HolderBuma and the FBI want to access private email or Google searches.

Apparently, it is not bad enough that the Corruptocrat Cowards in Congress are too spineless to pass a budget that allows taxpayers to see exactly how we are being robbed.  Now, they are using federal bureaucracies to avoid prosecuting illegal aliens and to legalize their illegal activities.  Senator Charles Grassley complains that the O-bumites are "trying an end run around Congress," and that they "will go to great lengths to circumvent Congress and unilaterally execute a back door amnesty plan."  Their actions give the term underhanded new meaning.

All Senator O-buma's hooting, gibbering, and chest thumping about George W. Bush's policies was merely high volume sanctimony.  Now, the ACLU is kicking his keister with their collective jackboot because he has kept those policies in effect.  He's going to get us out of Iraq, well after a bit. He's going to close Gitmo, pretty soon.  We're abandoning Afghanistan; no, wait, we'll send in an additional 30 thousand troops.  We won't raise taxes on the middle class.  WelfareHealthCare is not a tax, unless we have to defend it in court.  Right Brick-a-Brack, your veracity is awe inspiring.  It is revealing that a Loopy Left president cannot keep even the ACLU in his corner.

Speaking of loopy, there may be hope for Peabrain Pelosi after all. 

The compliant and complicit mainstream media colluded to mislead the public about the now failed DISCLOSE Act.  This was a blatant attempt to overthrow the recent Supreme Court ruling in favor of free speech and against censorship in the Citizens United case.  The plan was to have the law in effect before the November elections.  The Most Transparent Administration in History, my foot.

May your gods be with you.

An Unserious Presidency

President Gadfly golfs and vacations while hundreds of thousands are out of work due to his massive failures in the Gulf of Mexico.  Now, he's hitting the talk show circuit.  It is certainly beneficial for him that he has his plethora of media apologists to flutter about him making excuses for being a vacant suit.  All he really needs is an Obama ShamHow.

The Federal Reserve has evaluated the effectiveness of the Keynesian economic program that O-buma, Reid, Frank, Pelosi, Dodd, and company have put into effect to save the nation.  We are hip deep in grits.  The fed's analysis indicates that we are not coming out of the current recession until 2015-16.  Why oh why, one wonders, is Bobblehead Barney Frank singlehandedly blocking the House from voting on a bill, HR 1207, to authorize auditing the Fed.  Yes, we can; that is, we can vote O-buma's thugs out of office in November.

Another thing that we can and should do to stop the Theftocrats' schemes of wholesale importation of illegal alien welfare recipients is to change the 14th Amendment to require legal citizenship of parents before their offspring are granted citizenship.  Encouraging illegal alien women to stagger across the border and give birth in a taxpayer funded emergency room is just one aspect of the Obomunists' scheme to expand the theft welfare state.

In Utah, state officials estimate that some 20 thousand children's social security numbers have been stolen and used by illegal aliens.  They use the information to get driver's licenses and to obtain government services for which they are not entitled. They use children's identities because they are easier to acquire and are available to be misused for longer periods before anyone notices.  Requiring job applicants and anyone interacting with government agencies to prove citizenship could minimize these abuses.

The Service Employees International Union, a government union, wants illegal aliens to be granted legal status so that they can recruit them to become members of their already unjustifiably bloated and taxpayer subsidized guild of bureaucrats.  Remember in November the videos of SEIU hooligans harassing elderly people at the town hall meetings over WelfareHealthCare.

In other government union sleaziness, the National Education Association has chosen to celebrate Mao Zedong's murder of millions of Chinese as he created his version a workers' utopia.  This is being done in the name of diversity despite the fact that Mao's Murderers killed more people than Nazi Germany.  This article describes NEA's sanctimony as the arrogant hubris of "holier-than-thou" pseudo-intellectuals who are "not dedicated to the principle of diversity."  Instead, they are dedicated to "cultural Marxism."

However, when a member of the national education guild breaks ranks to expose wrong doing, cover ups, and theft, well, there is heck to be paid.  As a matter of fact, doing so is one of a very few acts for which a union teacher can be fired.  In Washington, DC, that bastion of responsible and effective education, Schools Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee has fired 241 teachers for incompetence, and in a surprise event, government teachers' union lawyers plan to game the system to get them reinstated.  What a shock. 

When student achievement tests require demonstrated cognitive learning, test takers fail in wholesale fashion. Still, there are no penalties for education union members who give unearned high school diplomas to students who simply do not attend classes.  EducRats' welfare scams harm those whom they claim to serve. 

In an event that is certain to secure Americans more liberty, Google and the CIA are combining resources to create a means of surveilling "tens of thousands of websites, blogs, and Twitter accounts to find the relationships between people, organizations, actions and incidents--both present and still to come."  Named Recorded Future, this Web scouring program gives its users the ability to "assemble real time dossiers on people."  Left wing totalitarianism is in full bloom.

May your gods be with you.

Control the Vote, Steal the Election

More antics are afoot with the HolderBuma department of selective enforcement, injustice, and prosecution by demographics.  Now they are trying so forestall implementation and enforcement of the Move Act for voters in the military.  Doing so can make their absentee ballots arrive too late to be counted.  How very convenient for them.  Considering that most military voters support Republican candidates, is this not merely another slant at stealing elections?

On the other hand, when it comes to enforcing parts of the Motor Voter law that requires purging the dead and ineligible off of voter lists HolderBuma political appointee Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes refuses to enforce the law. Her claim, on behalf of the Obomunistas, is we "have no interest in enforcing this provision of the law.  [Because it] has nothing to do with increasing turnout," and by extension illegal voter turnout.  According to the article there are many places in Missouri where "there are more registered voters than there are people with a heartbeat old enough to vote."  However, Eric the Red dismissed the pending lawsuit.

Comedian Al Franken was declared the winner in the 2008 Minnesota Senate race by 312 votes.  However, almost 400 convicted felons in just two counties voted for Franken.  Those who claim that elections cannot be stolen by illegal voting practices seem disingenuous at best.  Franken has no right to hold the seat that he currently occupies in the Senate.

To understand better how the Theftocrats engineer election results to their own liking and against voters' wishes, peruse this article about ACORN, the taxpayer funded front organization for the Corruptocrats.  Fourteen states are investigating charges of voter fraud concerning this group.  Members of Congress have unsuccessfully petitioned Holder's voting fraud facilitation team to prosecute.

Apparently, electronic voter fraud is easy to perpetrate.

Much in the same way that NASA has been converted into a Islamist outreach center, the EPA is now under MaoBuma edict to take regulatory actions that cater to minority, low income, indigenous peoples or tribes as regards "development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies."  What a relief that the EPA can use environmental laws to purchase votes from O-bum's permanent welfare constituents and race hustlers.

The Most Transparent Administration in History is at it again.  Brick-a-Brack O-buma promised that the taxpayers would not have to foot the bill for BP's Gulf of Mexico oil spill.  What a load.  Red Harry Reid and Bubblehead Barbra Boxer have created a Senate bill that, if passed, will greatly increase the cost of gasoline and diesel fuel.  Moreover, the party of government's drilling moratorium is also a jobs moratorium for hundreds of thousands of Gulf states' workers who badly need employment.  Good job there, O-buffoona.

Still, the Yes, we can't crowd relies on its plethora of academic and intellectual elitists to run things for the people whom they have designated as too ignorant to think and act for themselves.

How many people are aware that Taliban terrorists have killed ten times more Afghan civilians than NATO coalition troops' collateral damage?  The Presstitute Propagandists and O-buma apologists would like to keep it that way.

May your gods be with you.

Obomunism, a Failed Experiment

Last Friday was another example of the Most Transparent Administration in History's furtive practices.  The Mid-Session Review of the federal budget was released three hours late to limit media coverage.  The document, according to this article, is "nothing short of a complete admission of failure of the White House's economic policies."

There are some worrisome details that this administration is desperate to keep under wraps.  Its forecasters optimistically predict that unemployment for 2011 will average 9%.  Their prediction that the US economy will expand in 2011-12 at a rate of 4% is delusionally unrealistic.  However, one thing that is almost certain is that the feds will borrow 41 cents of every dollar that they spend.

The article raises other interesting points.  If the federal government were "to return to the per-household spending level of the Reagan Administration, the budget would be balanced by 2012, without any tax hikes."  Simply returning to spending levels that "existed before the current recession would balance the budget by 2019."

Unfortunately, Team O-buma's approach to matching the nation's expenditures to its receipts is merely the same failed experiment; they plan to increase taxes by three trillion dollars.  This time, despite having failed each time this experiment has been conducted in the past, the mommy staters claim that it will produce different results.  Treasury Secretary Little Timmy Geithner, the administration's shill, says it will.

Gang O-buma is not comprised of stupid people.  Fearless Leader is far from dim witted; however, he is sneaky, underhanded, devious, and cunning.  The Obomunists plan to have taxpayers on the hook for nearly $20 trillion by 2020. In less than ten years, US debt will be roughly 139% of 2009's GDP.  They do this knowing full well that runaway federal spending and nationalizing the private sector will throttle the very engine that is vital to economic recovery.  Totalitarians are intentionally running the ship of state aground.

Corruptocrats have moved to control Internet content through the Orwellian decree that ISPs are actually utilities.  Now, they are trying to control search engine results so that only information that is politically expedient (note the satire here) for them can be found.  They want to take over the major newspapers with federal subsidies; this is an old socialist trick.

They have given their socialist soul mates in the nation's unions political power exponentially greater than the 7% of the workforce that they represent.  They plan to force acceptance of union members on the boards of directors of all corporations without the approval of their companies' shareholders.  Eliminating the secret ballot with the Card Check hustle will facilitate union goons forcing otherwise unwilling workers to join unions.

Here is a bit of union history; the video shows members of the Teamsters union opposing striking members of the United Farm Workers.  Growers and Teamsters signed agreements trying to freeze out the UFW.  Sentient beings should recognize that two primary union goals are to extort economically  unjustifiable compensation packages from employers (including taxpayers) and to eliminate competition that would otherwise determine labor rates through the interaction of supply and demand.  Other unions exert influence as well. 

Grades K-12 are controlled by the American Federation of Teachers and the National Education Association.  Their union's leaders have bragged openly that they no longer teach facts.  If they are not teaching factual information, of what possible use are they?  What they teach is the indoctrination of attitudes, behaviors, and beliefs.  Also, university professors are almost universally progressivist Social Marxists who hate America.  They overwhelmingly support O-buma's nationalization schemes.

Dodd-Frank finished nationalizing the economic sector.  It gave the feds the authority to confiscate any business in the nation for arbitrary reasons.  This legal club allows the feds to micromanage all businesses in much the same way that WelfareHealthCare facilitated but from a different angle.  D-F also created another huge welfare bureaucracy of quotas, set-asides, and demographic driven hiring policies that further hampers businesses.

The federal government invents crises by contrivance and maintains them to perpetrate their fraud.  Think CRA, Fannie, and Freddie.  Subversive government practices collapse or cripple economically vital sectors.  Think auto manufacturing, housing, Wall Street, and banking.  Then, having made the mess intentionally, in swoops the federal perpetrator with loans and subsidies, some of them unwanted, and viola!  All they need to do is add some oppressive regulation by unelected bureaucrats and the takeovers are complete.

Banking, communication, education, health care, housing, manufacturing, media,  transportation, and utilities have been taken over through sleight of hand legislation and regulation.  We are likely too far along the slippery slope toward communism to recover.  

Remember the Tony Soprano Rule.  First it's the money; then, it's the takeover.  Expect more O-bumunista sneakiness during the lame duck session, especially if the Theftocrats lose control of one or more Houses of Congress .  Then, they will have much to gain and few, if any, commensurate consequences to bear.

May your gods be with you.

Forced to Subsidize Our Own Demise

One form of hiding our sins is to accuse our adversaries of our own wrongdoing.  The National Association for the Advancement of Crass Propaganda, a race based group, alleges that the Tea Party's members are racist in their support of political liberty and equality of opportunity and responsibility under law for all persons.  The federal injustice department has clandestinely adopted a no-prosecution-on-behalf-of-white-victims policy.  The Theftocrats want to add 10-20 million foreign welfare recipients to their already bloated welfare constituency.  Life is just peachy in post-racial America.

Hypocrisy and sanctimony are endemic in this society; still, it is in academia that the most egregious forms of racial bias and bigotry occur.  Education is increasingly vital in the quest for employment.  However, despite academic achievement, the task of being accepted to the nation's most prestigious universities is almost impossible to achieve for some.  The SAT Reasoning Test is used nationwide to evaluate students' readiness for college.  This article reveals that, compared to whites, Hispanics receive a 130 point entitlement bonus to their test scores, and blacks are given 310 unearned points.  Asians bear a 140 point penalty for being excessively intelligent.

Princeton Professor Russell K. Nieli summarized the findings of The National Study of College Experience that examined eighty of the nation's premier colleges and universities.  He concluded, in the above referenced article, that there is "an unwritten admissions rule at America's elite schools [that despite excellent SAT scores] Poor Whites Need Not Apply."  Members of these taxpayer funded institutions overwhelmingly supported O-buma in the last election.

This situation exists nationwide, and it is because government agents take money from taxpayers to fund it and to perpetuate it.  How thoroughly post-racial it is to discriminate against kids from Poland and Vietnam in order to provide entitlements to kids from Nigeria and Venezuela.

Virginia Senator James Webb (D) wrote in the Wall Street Journal that affirmative welfare "has within one generation brought about a permeating, state-sponsored racism that is as odious as the Jim Crow laws it sought to countermand."  He continued by asserting that "present day diversity programs...now favor anyone who does not happen to be white."  Webb cited the case of recent immigrants who benefit from "special government programs [while]  The same cannot be said of many hard-working white Americans, including those whose roots in America go back more than 200 years."

It is revealing to see how greedily and selfishly government union academics and those clients who most effectively bloat their bureaucracies defend their fiefdoms from any form of meritocracy.  Still, it does stand the test of reason that they would.  Bureaucracy is the antithesis of meritocracy.

The proponents of meritocracy believe that we should all earn our keep, pay full price for ourselves, and be individually and totally accountable for our actions.   Bureaucrats covet others' resources.  They believe that they deserve to be carried about by the working class as the nation's grand orchestra leaders who know best how everyone should live, think, act, and believe.  They are the self-appointed and self-anointed ruling class elite; all others are benighted heathens.

Brick-a-Brack O-buma leads the bureaucrats' theft-welfare state.  He is a career hustler whose knowledge of the private sector amounts to little more than how to steal from successful people.  He learned this as a community organizer.  He believes that he should be able to take whatever he wants, whenever he wants it, and from anyone whom he chooses to rob.

O-buma sees it as his destiny to wage a class war against all those who want to determine for themselves how to live and reject his vision of a socialist utopia run by pin head academics and funded by thieves in Congress.  The first shots in this class war were fired long ago; however, the Theftocrats are increasingly using the welfare state to rent more and more mercenary rats to rally to the cause of the collectivist, America hating traitors who are working hard to bankrupt the US.

We have been lulled to sleep by the complicit mainstream media as government has become all powerful, ever encroaching, pervasive, intrusive, confiscatory, and totalitarian.  The people who made this nation great are yearning to breathe free from the bonds of government imposed servitude.  Children have no concept of political liberty.  Their grandchildren will be repaying loans for money squandered today.  Deception among government officials is rampant.  They lie to us, steal from us, indoctrinate our children, punish hard work, and reward sloth.

Yes indeed, change is coming, and it will move us toward a government of, for, and by the people. 

May your gods be with you.

Videotape, Lies, and the Public gets Shafted

The Loony Left embraced Lyndon Johnson's fascist executive order establishing affirmative action as national policy.  This allowed Corruptocrats to circumvent the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments with impunity.  That fascism continues today as the O-bumites bestow resources to the governed based upon demographic considerations.

Noticeably silent on this campaign of duplicity and theft has been the fourth estate, or media, both print and electronic.  Without the presstitutes' yellow journalism, Obama might not be in the White House.  These people conspired to conceal news about Goddamn-America Reverend Wright when the story was fresh and most damaging to the totalitarians' cause.  On the very day that Sarah Palin was announced as McCain's running mate they launched a smear campaign against her.

In the above referenced article, journalist John R. Guardiano reports, "I always knew most Washington journalists were leftists.  But what I didn't know were the depths of intellectual dishonesty and dishonor to which many Washington journalists would descend in order to protect leftist pols and smear conservatives."  No lie is so low that they will not stoop to it in order to pursue their cause.

Richard Nixon was impeached for misleading the public, or lying.  Now, testimony given under oath by more than one source indicates that the Prevaricator-in-Chief lied when he denied that he had any knowledge of the back-room dealings in the Rod Blagojevich case.  Although it is a drop dead certainty that the Pinhead Pelosi House would not hold impeachment hearings for O-buma if the ABCNBCBS media prostitutes released film of him dismembering Michelle on the White House lawn, perhaps something could be done post election.

Hmmm...what could possibly explain the dearth of coverage on this story?  The Nixon story garnered front page coverage for weeks.

Another matter that merited more national attention than it received was the Republican filibuster against extending unemployment benefits.  The lapdog media portrayed this as hard hearted.  What they did not reveal was that the blockage was an attempt to force the Theftocrats to offset their spending with cuts in other areas pursuant to the Senate PAYGO rule.

Also underreported is this article on the Congressional Oversight Committee monitoring the $182 billion giveaway for the too-big-to-fail AIG.  There were better ways to handle the situation, and they were suggested at the time.  Taxpayers may well never be repaid, and worse yet, some $40 billion went to foreign banks.  This was done by the pass-it-before-we-read-it clowns.

Another story that received amazingly little coverage is the fact that the Groveler-in-Chief acquiesced to Chinese threats and moved our joint exercises with South Korea out of the South China Sea and to the other side of the Korean peninsula.  A weak appearing Jack Kennedy emboldened Nikita Khrushchev to expand into Cuba; this brought us to within an eyelash of nuclear war with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.  A kow towing, appeasing Obomunist could do even worse.

May your gods be with you.

Welfare by any Other Name

Once again, the O-bumites prove that they are too pusillanimous to bear being treated as they have treated others and that they offer a segregated and inferior collection of expectations and requirements as to the conduct and performance of people who qualify for affirmative welfare.

Maobuma's plan to save government union teachers' jobs will only cost taxpayers a mere $70,000 per job.  It seems as though the most effective way to combat this hustle is at the state level.  The theftocrats' generosity with other people's money is galling.  They are propping up these unions  with another $10 billion.

However, Democratic House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey, to his credit, did cut out $800 million of a $4.3 semi-slush fund given to the educrats to "spend virtually any way" they want.  Obey was at odds with Department of Education Secretary Duncan that he was "offended that he only has $3.2 billion to pass around."  Life is tough for the SecEd.

One way to curtail out-of-control federal spending is to shift entitlements to the states so that the voters there can decide whether and to what extent they want to fund those programs.  This would offer an additional bonus. There would be fewer federal bureaucrats needed to track, account for, and spend the states' money.

The consequences of progressive/socialist/mommy state influences on federal policies and legislation are coming due.  Everyone in this country will bear the burden and some of us more than others.  

The Obomunists are planning to stick it to the middle class taxpayers once again.  They are going to allow the Bush Tax Cuts to expire.  The article points out that "one lesson from Hoyer's tax assault on the middle class is that 'temporary' tax cuts face the chopping block, but 'temporary' tax increases live to be paid another day."

What a shock it is that Team O-buma is still at it lying, sneaking, and weaseling to increase the size of their welfare fiefdom.

The UN's Program of Action on Small Arms is embraced by the Obaaama sheeples.  It seems likely to conflict with both the First Amendment and Second Amendment.  In the first case, the program calls for a "reduction of violence in media and in video games" and sustained "efforts at re-education and reorientation of {member states'} citizens."  Chairman Mao's re-education camps are to be run by the UN.

Second, PoA parallels an Organization of American States agreement on illicit manufacturing of firearms that neologizes that term such that virtually every US gun owner would be required to acquire a manufacturing permit from the feds.  Good luck with that; ownership requires a manufacturing permit.  This typifies Backdoor O-buma's devious schemes.  He is planning to disarm Americans through compliance with a UN mandate and then blame it all on that pesky UN.

Evidence continues to accumulate that lowering tax rates increases revenue to government.  When rates are increased, revenues decrease.  The state of Oregon recently learned what history has already taught about Jack Kennedy and Ronald Reagan.

O-buma and company seem to have tossed a bone to NASA.  Perhaps it is a meaty bone at that; we'll see whether this is genuine or just PR.

Look who's having labor problems.

May your gods be with you.

Has this gotten old yet?  There are no excuses, only rationalizations and outright lies; racism is racism.

MTAH is launching wave after wave of clandestine racist actions.

Holderbama is suing Arizona but allowing sanctuary cities to continue defying federal requirements to enforce immigration laws.  Nope, this is not one bit racist.

Is Maobuma garnering support from police unions by allowing them to run amok?  Exposing wrongful acts by government agents used to be protected and even encouraged.

O-buma and his lackeys want to eliminate the Commerce Department from involvement in US arms exports and give it to the White House friendly State Department.  Gee, what benefit could this give to the person who appoints our foreign ambassadors?

Observant individuals across the globe continue to recognize that the O-bomunistas are hell bend on bankrupting this country.

The evidence just keeps mounting.

Does the ONE have a plan?  Why, yes he does, and you are not going to approve.  It will cause electricity bills to increase by 36%, decrease family income by $2400 a year, and cost the US about one million jobs.  All this is to purchase continued support from the ecofascists.

"Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press."

Here is more from the party of it-depends-on-what-your-definition-of-is-is.  It seems as if the Corruptocrats have abandoned their weaseling semantics about the Commerce Clause in defense of the WelfareHealthCare and have finally admitted that is a tax.

Speaking of WelfareHealthCare, what did the genius policy planners in the White House think was going to happen?

Tocqueville was right.  We are being bribed with our own money.  This time it is to acquiesce to the federal push to finish nationalizing education with national non-standards.

The national education collective is continuing its Luddite ways.  The NEA and AFT are going to join their fellows at the UAW in a reality check.  The use of computers and automation will consign them to the same fate that the International Longshoreman's Association met at the hands of containerized shipping.  They will be consigned to history's trash heap along with other mid-twentieth century dinosaurs.  It is sad the they simply cannot remove their self-imposed blinders.

It could be prudent to respect someone who robs you at gunpoint; however, never respect a robber who pencil whips you.  Remember the intellectual giant Pinhead Pelosi's claim that it was necessary to pass the bill in order to learn what was in it?

People who have been getting the shaft from set asides, quotas, and affirmative welfare policies undoubtedly have fairness issues.  However, it seems arguable, even plausible, that free market economies can effect fairness better than the corporate-state oligarchies favored by the O-bumunistas.  Shocked, shocked.

Here we have just another isolated event that is completely unrelated to any administration plans to control unfriendly bloggers and talk radio.  You don't suppose that this was Hollywood inspired by any chance?

May your gods be with you.

Vote with our Feet and Money?

True to form, MTAH is desperately trying to sweep evidence of its ineptitude out of the 24 hour national news window.  Needless to say, this cannot be done without the help of the Three Big Weenies at ABC, CBS, and NBC.

O-buma's political capital is spent, at least for the current term.  As if the damage done by him and his party-of-theft comrades were not enough, see what he plans to do if he is re-elected in 2012.

Here is another glimpse of the future, Portugal, Ireland, and then the US?  Our national debt is over 87% of our GDP.  The federal deficit for the current fiscal year is $1.42 trillion.  The Congressional Theftocrats plan to increase mandatory spending by 15.6% and discretionary spending by 13.2% for the next fiscal year, or a whopping increase of 28.8%.  The people in Washington, DC simply don't get it; hopefully, what they will get is the ax in November.    

The full weight of the federal government will come to bear on anyone who fails to seig heil to the fuhrer of WelfareHealthCare.  The problems with having adopted a Massachusetts type health system are many; the health benefits, if any, are few.  Federal laws such as this one are totems, or must-do-requirements, rather than taboos, or thou-shalt-nots that form the basis of out legal system.  This totalitarianism began in earnest in the 1960s when the feds used the Commerce Clause to prevent individuals from owning land outright.  Is the picture becoming more recognizable?

The pattern is clear by now.  First comes the federal giveaway.  After that comes the confiscation of land, liberty, and property.  First it was a penalty, then it was a fine, now it's a tax.  If we refuse to give away our money willingly, they will send people with guns and lawyers to confiscate it against our wishes.  Welcome to the world of Barack O-stalin.

This article reports that 20 of the 50 states are suing the O-bumunistas for expanding the theft welfare state by nationalizing the health care industry.  Without recommending it and merely as an observation, perhaps this could become a wave of succession from the increasingly totalitarian reach of the federal mommy state.  If individuals and businesses in those states refused to pay federal taxes in protest of this unwarranted intrusion, the Theftocrats and their ever more burdensome permanent welfare constituencies could lose 40% of their income.

The states of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, and Washington have joined the suit.  Virginia has filed a separate suit.  How can the federal government enforce a law that so many people oppose?  If the O-bomunist has too few troops to defend our border with Mexico, how can he make us buy what we do not want?  Think about the marvelous success of the Eighteenth Amendment's prohibition of alcohol.

If federal duplicity under the guise of applying the Commerce Clause were not despicable enough, the Federal Communication Commission's Orwellian lies to excuse its plans to take control of the Internet is even more appalling.  Now that they have declared that a horse is actually a donkey, this ruse will be followed by micromanaging regulation, taxation, rationing, and censorship.

However, this act is the first Obumination that deserves to be repealed by Congress in January, 2011.  Why is there so little outrage over this totalitarian takeover via taxation and regulation?  Have we really become such docile sheep that we are willing to be led to slaughter? 

Many years ago, it was suggested that we should sprinkle fluorescent powder that glows brightly under black light along the most heavily traveled smuggling routes on the US/Mexico border.  We could then use portable black lights to check for the powder.  This would give law enforcement agents probable cause to stop, search, and check the immigration status of everyone who was tainted with the substance.  This could help curtail smuggling of drugs, people, and weapons.

This plan could drastically improve enforcement efforts against smugglers.  The problems that we have along the border exist because those in charge of government want things this way.  They are benefiting from it; otherwise, they would commit the necessary resources to end it.

For anyone who is weary of the O-bum's New Black Panther Party type of government, take a look at this can't-be-fired government employee scoundrel bragging about its racist actions.  Are you fed up yet?  Remember in November.

May your gods be with you.

AFT, NEA China Connection?

In the ongoing culture wars between the secular human-progressive-mommy state totalitarians and the economically and socially laissez-faire libertarians, totalitarians currently have the upper hand.

They control education; therefore, they control how language is taught to children.  In doing so, they determine what they think and believe.  This sets limits as to what they are able to think, say, and believe.  These emotional and cognitive blinders are useful tools that help them condition children to become self-censoring and subservient.  The only alternative that they find acceptable is to drug them into submission.

Free speech is an indispensable means of combating, confronting and challenging the totalitarian education collective's indoctrination machine.  We use words to express ideas or concepts.  Without the words, we cannot express our ideas; unable to articulate those concepts, we lose the ideas themselves.  Bowdlerizing speech sanitizes thought.  Words only mean what they mean when it is expedient to totalitarians.  Diane Ravitch refers to this as "cultural amnesia."   

At the heart of the conflict is their plan to eliminate all words and ideas that facilitate accurate comparison.  Part of the scheme to eliminate accurate comparison is to eliminate standards. Without a standard, or single, fixed point of reference, such comparison is impossible.  This helps their efforts to reward or discourage students based upon the extent to which those students are willing to embrace totalitarian groupthink.

Eliminating accurate comparison also prevents universal evaluation of conduct and performance.  Doing so helps to promote totalitarians' ethical and cultural relativism agenda.  If ethics can be understood as the science--emphasis on scientific method--of making moral choices, the purpose of the relativist agenda becomes clear.

Some tenets of ethical relativism are that all moral choices are equally valid, that they are purely subjective, that morals are only relevant when it is convenient, that situations, rather than principles, determine whether actions are moral, and that each individual choice is as valid as any other. 

Cultural relativism's dominant precepts are that all cultures' values, beliefs, and practices are equally valid and worthwhile, that all cultures have contributed equally to the human condition, and that behavior can only be evaluated from within the context of its cultural setting.  Totalitarians emulsified ethical and cultural relativism and devalued objectionable cultures and ethical systems to hide their intentions.  

Totalitarians' agenda has been effected through various means and by many different sources.  Outcome Based Education is one method of behavioral conditioning that they have used.  Under it, schoolchildren who object to particulars of the agenda or point out its flaws are ostracized and bullied with peer pressure until their voices are silenced.  In adolescent and young adult settings, the result of refusing to conform is that they are branded by their peers, teachers, instructors, and professors as people who have personal problems.

They are most often accused of exhibiting from some form of ism, ageism, racism, sexism, who-knows-what ism; nonetheless, the message is clear.  There is something wrong personally with non-conformers; these tactics resemble those used in Chairman Mao's reeducation camps.  An enlightening and informative reading list on these matters can be found here.

Author Ann Wilson points out that Outcome Based Education has been "packaged under other names, including Mastery Learning, Performance Based Education, Glasser's Reality Therapy, Management by Objectives, Planning Programming, Budgeting Systems (PPBS), Total Quality Management (TQM), Accelerated Schools, Effective Schools, Corner Schools, Johnson City Schools, Schools for the 21st Century, Sizers Coalition of Essential Schools, Professional Development Schools, Outcomes Driven Development Model (ODDM)," and many other euphemistic titles that obscure that they are only slight variants of OBE.

These agents of the state are hiding their intentions and actions; when government agents hide what they are doing, something is seriously amiss.

May your gods be with you.

La Mordida

US stock markets rallied during the last 12 months due to artificial (not market driven) actions by the federal government.   Despite the stimulus spending, the first time home buyers tax credit, and massive "capital injections by the federal reserve," official unemployment estimates are still near 10%.  The feds tried the FDR plan, and it failed this time too.

This has saddled the many with massive debt to benefit the privileged few.  The too-big-to-fail propaganda was created to hide the federal government's confiscation of privately owned property and use of tax dollars to prop up economically non-viable industries.  The now-pending Dodd-Frank bill also authorizes the federal government to seize businesses that seem likely to fail due to government meddling.

If businesses can't compete within their market niches, they deserve to fail, should have their doors shuttered, and have their remaining assets sold to repay investors.  Artificially supporting stagnant and bloated buggy-whip-maker-type operations coddles, pampers, and protects the moneyed few at the expense of the many who are the nation's taxpayers.

The US steel industry is an example of an industry transformation.  Non-viable companies folded, merged, and restructured to lower costs and improve cost-effectiveness.  A new industry emerged that is able to compete in the global economy.  This is how free enterprise works; we add new innovations and eliminate failed experiments.  In the words of Ray Kroc: "As long as you're green, you're growing.  When you're ripe, you start to rot.

The Corruptocrats are well along into the rotting process.  This chart was compiled by Open Secrets.  It shows which organizations have contributed most to political campaigns from 1989 to 2009.  Notice carefully that of the heavy hitters in the top twenty, three contribute about equally between Democrats and Republicans.  Fourteen of the twenty tilt heavily toward Democrats, and two tilt moderately toward them.  Of the top twenty, only two tilt toward Republicans and only slightly.

Four of the top 20 are government unions' political action committees.  In the reported period, they contributed about $172 million dollars to elect proponents of the mommy state.  First, follow the money.

Government agents take money from private sector workers to pay bureaucrats more than they can command for their services on the open market.  The government unions take a cut of those bloated compensation packages.  Then, they contribute to the political coffers of the very government hoods who are preventing taxpayers from buying labor at rates determined by the laws of supply and demand.  The money trail is clear.

Government takes privately earned money.  It gives bureaucrats lavishly extravagant compensation packages.  The unions take a bite and contribute some of it to the politicians who are perpetrating this taxpayers' fleecing.

Private sector unions are little different.  The National Labor Relations Board, the federal Department of Labor, and various supporting state and federal agencies keep a club over the heads of employers that forces them to accept union monopolies on the supply of labor for their companies.  This keeps business owners from shopping in an open marketplace driven by the forces of supply and demand in which increased demand raises prices, and increased supply decreases them.

This is just another back door tax levied against the majority (private sector) of workers in this nation.  It is a surreptitious tax because unelected officials create and effect the process.  The House neither appropriates this money nor allocates its spending.  It exists as a means to inflate wages arbitrarily for the purpose of paying off the overlords who are re-elected by its proceeds.    

Among the top 20 campaign contributors in the last 10 years, two lean slightly toward Republicans, 4 divide money about evenly, and the other 14 are comprised mostly of taxpayer supported government and private unions.  Of the non-union entities, one is ActBlue, a Democrat front organization, and the other is AAJ, formerly the Trial Lawyers Association, whose significant contributions are helping to prevent tort reform.

When seen in conjunction with other forces such as the heavily subsidized efforts of ACORN, another Democrat front operation, and similar other organizations, a pattern starts to emerge.  Although the Theftocrats did not invent the process of buying constituents' votes by confiscating the legal, social, economic,and political resources of others, they are the largest purveyor in the nation.

May your gods be with you.

O-buma and Chavez: Slouching Toward State Corporations

Brick-a-Brack O-buma is no Franklin Delano Roosevelt.  His intentions are considerably more sinister, and he and his minions are much more inept.  The people who are best able to revive the nation's economic engine refuse to participate in his failed experiments.  No amount of public disparagement, legislative and regulatory arm twisting, or shady back room deals will get them to participate enthusiastically in their own undoing.

Although Mao-buma succeeded in getting Bank of America's CEO and Board of Directors fired, he cannot get the nation's business leaders willingly to invest in his progressivist schemes because their potential reward, if any, is not justified by the risk.  It reveals the ONE's arrogance and naiveté that he feels betrayed because, after excoriating the heads of the financial sector, they have the audacity to refuse to be led to slaughter by the Theftocrats.

Expect further nationalization efforts from this merry band of thieves. 

Critics of Arizona's new immigration law have begun hypocritically to chant their mantra: this is racial profiling.  This article from the ultra right wing New York Times discusses charges of profiling that were lodged against the New York Police Department for their stop-and-frisk policies.
  • 55% of stops involved blacks; they represent 23% of the city's population.
  • 10% of stops involved whites; they represent 35% of the population.
  • 66% of all violent crime was committed by blacks.
  • 80% of shootings and 71% of robberies were committed by blacks.
  • 98% of reported gun assaults were attributed to blacks and Hispanics.
In contrast, 5% of violent crimes, 1.4% of shootings, and less than 5% of robberies were committed by non-Hispanic whites.

In 12% of all of the stops combined, arrests or summonses resulted; however, the ratio to population was identical for blacks, Hispanics, and whites.  

In Los Angeles, the data for stops and arrests are similarly proportionate.  As a result of a legal challenge, the federal courts recently found that the way in which those policies were carried out was "consistent with civil rights."

Claims of racial profiling usually fly in the face of reason.  Law enforcement officials have established empirically that the numbers of illegal immigrants crossing our border with Mexico overwhelmingly are Hispanic.  Funneling resources to known smuggling corridors and areas where illegals tend to congregate, recognizing that illegals entering from the Mexican border are most likely Hispanics, and acting appropriately on that information judiciously applies limited resources.

The motivations behind the spurious claims of racism are myriad.  Members of the civil rights industry want to help illegal aliens to avoid bearing commensurate consequences for their actions.  Civil rights lawyers, paid activists, hate mongering race hustlers, professional victims, left-wingers, and yellow-journalism style media types are benefiting economically and politically from the deceitful claims of racial profiling.  What they want most is to eliminate effective law enforcement strategies.

In the words of Reverend Ike, the best way that "you can help poor people is not to be one of them."  Members of the nation's education collective claim that the most reliable way to achieve that is through the product that they are selling, education.  They would also have you believe that they are driven by altruism; they only want what is best for the children.

Education may be the way to the promised land; however, their hustle is that you can only get there by worshiping their deity.  Their god is the gatekeeper of the path to prosperity.  Any other faiths, philosophies, or persuasions are all followers of false gods, pagan idols, or cultists whose motivations are crass, venal, and lack the purity of the collective's visions.  

Before uncritically adopting this line, perhaps examining some successful educational methods and programs could be useful.  In Washington, DC, the Opportunity Scholarship Program has been hugely successful for poor and minority students over the last five years.  Who is moving to end it and why?  It is the powerful elite, O-buma, the National Education Association, and the union fat cats and bureaucrats who want to continue conducting the same failed experiment that is education in America.

Read about the Education Debacle of the Decade.  Continuing to allow organized labor's communistic philosophies to monopolize public education cannot be justified economically, academically, or socially.  Far too many tax dollars are squandered outside the classroom on administrative featherbedding, union teachers' salaries and benefits are bloated compared to their private sector counterparts, and education continues to foster and maintain a permanent government-dependent underclass of people who are vocationally suited for little more than salting fries at hamburger outlets.

Still, they are whining that the Obomunist has not repaid them sufficiently for their campaign contribution largess.  Those campaign contributions, by the way, were dollars earned by private sector workers, confiscated by bureaucrats, and given to educrats to help O-buma get elected.

Who, oh who, could possibly benefit from maintaining, at taxpayer expense, a permanent welfare constituency?  Surely it could not be bureaucrats, Theftocrats, collectivists, academics, nihilists, socialists, statists, communists, community organizers--who else could they organize--mommy staters, radical feminists, and the rest of the Loony Left, could it?

Once again, a federal give away program has proved to be little more than a boondoggle.  The One Laptop per Child initiative proved to be unhelpful.  Test scores barely improved, decreased, or dropped significantly after the computers were given to students.  It seems that, unsupervised, the students used the computers recreationally rather than academically.  One valuable lesson to be drawn from this--something that parents have known for generations--is that the most effective way to enhance children's educational achievement is through the constant involvement and supervision of two caring parents.

Finally, it is interesting to recognize the relationship between those who are riding in the public wagon and those who are pulling it.  The people who are riding in it, bureaucrats, welfare recipients, and public officials are not taxpayers.  They receive the people's money and return some of it to taxing authorities.  This is not paying taxes.  The people who are actually paying taxes are the people who earned the money originally by working in the private sector.

This is not intended to belittle those employees of worthwhile government agencies and departments who provide vital services to the US.  The Department of Defense, NASA, and NOAA come to mind, among others.  However, the increasingly lopsided ratio of riders to wagon pullers is making it ever more difficult for the private sector to generate enough revenue to support the grand old lady of government in the style to which she has become accustomed.

May your gods be with you.

RIP Terry Anderson

Silent raids, or federal agents' auditing businesses' records for evidence of employing illegal aliens, is another Obomunist opacity scam angling toward amnesty.  At first blush, it may seem as though this plan might stanch the flow of illegals across the border with Mexico.  Actually, it provides Corruptocrats two benefits.  The fines levied satisfy leftist desires to harm business people for their egregious crimes of earning profits.  Additionally, the fired aliens move onto the welfare rolls, which adds to the Theftocrats permanent entitlement constituency.

This ersatz enforcement hustle is but a ploy.  If the Obum were sincere--volumes could be written about those five words--about immigration reform, he might propose refusing immigration to people with work skills that we have already in adequate supply.  This of course runs counter to claims from the Loony Left that we need more people with strong backs and uneducated minds.  Illegal immigration hurts poor and minority people through the loss of vitally important entry level jobs and affordable inner-city housing.  The result of which is that--what a shock--formerly productive citizens are turned into government dependent O-buma supporters on the welfare rolls.

On the topic of welfare, the Tenth Amendment might be a means of having the recently enacted WelfareHealthCare hustle declared unconstitutional.  The Totalitarian Left could be hoist by its own petard.

Another form of welfare is federal employment.  Bureaucrats in the federal government union are greatly over compensated compared to private sector workers whose money is confiscated to pay the bureaucrats.  According to this article, they are compensated "approximately 30 to 40 percent more...than comparable private sector workers."  We could decrease the federal deficit by nearly $50 billion a year just by compensating them as they would be as private sector workers.  Fifty billion here, and fifty billion there, and the next thing you know, you're into some real money.

Still, fifty billion is a pittance compared to the energy tax that the party-of-theft is hoping to enact.  Their kneecap and rape scam is so far reaching in its totalitarian micro-managing that it will prevent people from selling their homes in order to retire.  This is how low they will stoop to further the scope of the federal theft-welfare state.  They genuinely want to bring America to her knees, and no act to further that cause is too despicably fraudulent not to be utilized.  In Chicago under Saul Alinsky, Maobuma learned well the ropes of organized voter fraud.

The party of deception has used its compliant bobble head media resources to smear Israel since taking over the White House.  The recently converted Christian (thanks to God damn America! rev. Wright) and was-never-a-Muslim Hussein O-buma is openly supporting the Islamofascists' jihad against the US, but he and his minions lack the spine to admit it.  Others seem to notice the con perpetrated by them.

The Obamination seems intent on alienating our friends and coddling our enemies.  Compare the spineless ONE's kow towing and groveling to this example set by an earlier president.

We now have our own Joseph Stalin in the White House.  His academics are deceitfully rewriting history.  He has used theft-by-regulation to take over the financial, housing, manufacturing, and health care industries.  All of those former private sector operations are being forced to engage in redistribution of wealth and capital in ways that are making them non-viable business entities that cannot expand or create enough jobs to end the recession; all the while, huge tax increases are coming in January, 2011, that will further cripple our once robust economy.  The communist is even using the injustice department to facilitate voter fraud and voter intimidation.

It seems that the only thing that history has taught us is that it has not taught us very much.

May your gods be with you.

Weekend Reading, Not for the Faint of Heart

Even among traditional supporters, people are recognizing that Obuffoona's agenda to dismantle America is a threat to our nation.  They are growing increasingly disgusted with him, even at festivals for elite academics.

It will be interesting to see what happens with this in September, just before the elections that seem poised to return the House to Red Staters.

New Orleans public school system's voucher program has vastly improved their students' academic performance.  The education collective's government union types are wringing their hands and holding their collective breath until they turn blue in envious protest of this success.

We are in the throes of a deep recession; unemployment is high and the economy will be in the tank for the foreseeable future.  So, what do the Obaministas do?  They raise the cost of energy while we are being roasted by a heat wave.  Way to go O-buma.

O-bumaHolder's department of injustice continues to be revealed as slimier than imaginable.  Are these not impeachable offenses?  When DOJ intentionally and knowingly violates the law, who investigates?  That's right, either the Obum or the Complicit Congressional Corruptocrats.

In another shocking turn of events, Hoodlum Holder plans to review the Oakland BART verdict to determine whether any double jeopardy persecution is in order.  This is the same clown who welfared the Panther Putzes out of being held accountable in the way that real people are required to answer for themselves.

Sarah to O-buma: "How's that hopey-changey thing workin' out for ya?

How un-PC (pandering cowardice), the arsonist who torched the mosque in Marietta was--gasp--a Muslim.

This video illustrates why the Obum used the Congressional recess to appoint this communist.  The White House's minister of propaganda Robert Gibbs refuses even to address questions about the soon-to-be euthanizer of elderly and chronically ill people, much less to answer them.

This might make a wonderful birthday gift for dad this year.

Urban Shopping Excursion

What a surprise it is to learn that the guilty verdict for the Oakland, California, transit cop has sparked rioting.  Imagine that, especially in light of the innocent verdict in the infamous double jeopardy Rodney King case that was the excuse for the rioting following that verdict.  Let's see.  There will be riots for either innocent or guilty verdicts; imagine the devastation that a mistrial might bring.

Rioting of this sort follows a pattern.  Having latched onto one convenient excuse or another, the fun usually begins at liquor stores.  Once the buzz sets in and if they are available, it is off to any place that might have guns.  If there are no pawnshops, gun shops, or sporting goods outlets with guns, the jewelery stores are next for the easy-to-carry items.

This is usually followed, and in no particular order, by raids on outlets that sell shoes, clothes, appliances, and electronics.  The final stop is almost always to food stores for a refreshing pre-dawn snack to replenish the strength after a strenuous night of sporting events that included grabbing-and-carrying, car burning, passersby beating, fleeing and eluding, and the looters' all time favorite, the rock-and-bottle-toss.

The only other universally popular looters' event is the ever present mugging for the CNN cameras to satisfy the emotional needs of the insignificant and attention starved who feel the need to grovel for attention.  Riots are the living proof of the need for draconian welfare reform.

May your gods be with you.

Federal Communication Commission: Doublespeak, Doublethink

Instead of leading, we are on the outside looking inside at the world's conventional wisdom.  Ostensibly, we are part of the G20, but in reality the organization is the G19 and the O-buffoon.

The MTAH (muh-thuh) is a secret society.  One such group is the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility; liberals have re-named it the Catfood Commission.  They operate in secrecy to such an extent that members of both political parties, John Boehner (R-OH) and John Conyers (D-MI) have begun to complain about it.  The the slightly left-of-center Firedoglake organization claims that there will be reductions in Social Security benefits and new payroll taxes to reduce the federal deficit. 

So, where is the AARP on this matter?  It seems that they are reaping federal largess.  The Obumunistas have sullied so much of this nation; it is as though there is a moral oil spill blanketing the country.

Muhthuh's weaseling antics continue to hide the truth from Americans.  The budget substitute Deemed Duplicity continues to receive only a modicum of national attention.  Paul Ryan of the federal debt commission explains that "this is not a budget."  He continues, "it does not meet the most basic, commonly understood objectives of any budget."  Fellow commission member Judd Gregg describes it as a "hope-and-prayer exercise."  He further asserts that the Democrats "do not want to let the American people see how bad the five-year numbers are."  Way to go Muhthuh.

For the same reason that the Congress refused to pass a budget for fiscal year 2011, the feds have refused to publish the Annual Report of the Social Security Board of Trustees.  If it were published, the public would learn of the horrific effects on Social Security and Medicare that the O-bomination's WelfareHealthCare will produce.

For the O-bumites to scheme in secrecy, it is necessary to censor free speech.  The NASA/Bolden debacle reveals the extent to which the mainstream lapdog media has already become a bunch of self-censoring eunuchs who avoid reporting White House buffoonery.  The Disclose Act was conceived to pander to the Corruptocrats' government subsidized union supporters and silence those who resent having their resources confiscated to support the O-bomunist regime's agenda.

Perhaps the most insidious of the members of the coalition assembled under The One is the ecofascist element.  Along with the EPA, they are truly the thugs on the streets and in the schools and universities.  They prevent reasoned discourse, shout down accurate dissent, and indoctrinate children.  They are O-buma's brownshirts.  Green has become brown.

May your gods be with you.

Change We Simply Cannot Believe

If you who voted for Change We Can Believe In, did you know that one change that the O-boob wanted to make was to increase by 125,000 annually the number of Americans who will die of cancer?  Donald Berwick is soon to be a recess appointee who will run Medicare and Medicaid.  His plan is to provide too little health care (Cap) with the certain knowledge that the benefit will be to allow untreated people to die (trade).  This is planned and forced euthanasia, or execution without due process.

From Berwick: "You plan the supply; you aim a bit low; you prefer too little of a technology or a service to too much."  Under-supplying culls people at the margins.  They have begun with the elderly by cutting out hundreds of millions of dollars from Medicare.  They begin with the elderly; then, it is the severely disabled.  From there, they nibble away at anyone who is not part of the High Command.  Seig heil! 

Government steals the health care industry.  Congress, federal bureaucrats, government and private sector union members are exempted.  Too little health care is provided to the taxpayers.  Hundreds of thousands die for lack of care.  Federal bureaucrats will be in charge of rationing.  Anyone who cannot recognize that the rationers will see to it that those who opposed the nationalization of the health care industry will be on the short end of the rationing stick, please contact me.  I have a bridge to sell.

Another aspect of the mommy staters' WelfareHealthCare is the fines that will be levied against employers.  Businesses will be fined $3000 for each employee whose portion of a health premium exceeds 9.5% of his household incomeThis company would lose over half of its annual income to the theft welfare state.  Little, if any, expansion would be possible, and many fewer jobs would be available where they "are needed most--in lower income areas."  The upshot of this hustle is that--surprise--more people will be dependent upon the mommy state.

This is standard procedure Theftocrat politics: steal other people's resources, exploit the contrived loss of employment to expand the welfare state, keep the newly created drones trapped on the federal welfare plantation, buy their votes with the resources that were stolen in the first place.  Oh, and one other thing, magically deem into being a non-existent budget to hide the money trail. 

One of the activities at which the Duplicitous Dunces truly excel is job killing.  Despite outward appearances, not all of them are stupid.  They recognize their handiwork.  They also understand that the "nation's working-age population grows by about 150,000 a month."  It would immediately require over 10 million new jobs to put America back to work at the level that we were at three years ago.  If it takes three years to recover, " more than 3.5 million additional jobs will be needed because of continued population growth."

It is the continuing outrage.  First the subsidy, then the takeover.

That should be enough bad news for one day.  Here is a 30 minute fireworks display sped up to three minutes.  It's a bit like a turn of the century herky jerky, hand cranked film only in color.

This is an amazing safety advance.

Boeing's new stealth transport plane looks promising.  Also, this solar plane could fly around the clock.  It could be most useful to surveil the US-Mexico border.


May your gods be with you.
