We Have Not Taught This Generation What It Means To Be An American

May 31, 2010

Mr. Dennis Prager, during a question and answer period at University of Denver, relates that we have not taught American values and what it means to be an American to this Generation.  He also relates difference in thinking between liberals and conservatives.

‘The bigger the government the worse the citizen’.  I could not agree more.  One of the problems in modern Greece is the government controlled everything.  When the government failed, everything failed.  When the government asked for help from the people, the people said no.

‘A woman who banned the military from a college campus, that Democrats sanction this, that this is not disqualifying, is a moment of darkness in American History’.  President Obama basically nominated himself to the Supreme Court.  This woman is a hard leftist Socialist liberal with a very thin resume and a history of activism.  The worst choice possible for a free nation.

‘This November is a referendum on what we want America to be’.  Yes, we change the government now, or we become a Socialist Nation of has beens forever.

‘You can love America and be an awful person’.  This is true.  I know many that were willing to sacrifice their lives for this country, but they were not very nice people.  Also, taking into account our Socialist and dysfunctional education system, you cannot expect anyone to graduate with less than extreme views.

‘Because they like to distort everything we say’.  Yes, the Alinski method is the tried and true way for Democrats.  They know they cannot debate the issues, because they will lose on substance.  So they merely change the message of those who oppose them and count on the cover of the government-owned media to continue the lie.

‘If we do not change both houses we lose’.   Yes, he is basically stating that if Conservatives do not take control now, two more years of Obama politics will result in a permanent Socialist Government that controls everything and everyone.

‘No one has ever said that Norway, Sweden or Denmark is the last best hope of mankind’.  This goes back to gist of the article.  Current generations cannot see through Socialist Liberal view of this nation and take notice that we are the light of freedom in the modern World.  No other nation in history has sacrificed so much for the freedoms of others.  No other nation will.

‘Peace activist did not liberate Auschwitz’.  ‘The left have everything wrong’.  The leftist have this flawed thought process that believes if we all simply sit down, and sing Kum Baya, everyone in the World will get along just fine.  Sorry, but that is not human nature.  There are radicals who want to kill people simply because they do not worship the same way.  There are radicals who believe music is evil.  You are not going to change their minds by simply being friendly to them.  This has not worked with criminals, it will never work with terrorist or dictators.

‘America is the last best hope of mankind’.  All of Europe and most of Asia depend on America for defense.  Socialist Europe could not exist today if they had to pay for their own defence.   Without the US backing them up, Russia would simply take all of Europe. China would take all of Asia.  There would be no freedom in the World.

‘The President does not believe in American Exceptionalism’.  This President does not like America as is.  He wants to change it into a Socialist hell hole,  based on some twisted view he has that will allow the Social Elites to continue business as usual, while average Americans will see their lifestyles in reverse and their wealth transferred to other nations.  He will enrich the World by doing away with the American middle class and destroying the American process for success. 

‘The Left believes that the UN is the best hope of mankind.   The UN who just elected Iran to the UN Commission on Women’s Rights’.  The UN is a joke.  The UN is the most corrupt liberal organization on the planet.  Over half the money that is dumped into the UN, on an annual basis, goes unaccounted for.  Foreign aid that does make it to its’ original destination often goes into the pockets of dictators and corrupt UN employees.  The UN is anti-American, Anti-Israel and Anti-free speech.  The troops they send to protect people often end up robbing and raping the populace, while being totally unconcerned with defending them.  The UN is incapable of bringing the World peace, hope and freedom.

‘Who is the greater good, the US or the UN’.  The US is the most charitable nation on Earth.  Without US aid people in third World nations would live very short and very miserable lives.  Lets face the facts, the UN, without US money, is nothing.  The UN with US money is practically nothing.  The only thing that makes the UN anything is the US.  I for one, would fully support our leaving the UN and making our own way.  Let China, Russia and the Middle East fund their own corrupt organization.  If they sanction us, we turn off their food supply.  It is just that simple.

All in all I thought Mr. Prager’s video was thought provoking and well worth sharing.  It is rare to hear someone put it all into perspective in one short answer.  We need to educate Americans on true American History and put a stop the Socialist lies and slander that subsitute for education today.

More than anything, we need to vote the Socialist out of power this November.  It is November or a lifetime of people who would rather go on vacation than deal with the problems facing the nation.

A Gift For Reading The Teleprompter Is Not The Same As Leadership

May 31, 2010

Ms Liz Cheney adds a litte zing, on Fox News Sunday, with her comment ‘A gift for reading the teleprompter is not the same as leadership’.

I agree, just because he says it is so, does not make it so.  Now, if the lame stream media would just pick up on that ‘fact’.

Of course, he is too busy playing golf, basketball, partying down in the White House and going on vacation to notice that the majority of the people are no longer buying the lies he is trying to sell.


Hodge Podge Sunday 30 May 2010

May 30, 2010

Hello all.  I hope this finds everyone well and enjoying the Memorial Day Weekend.  Please remember to take a bit of your precious time, a moment of thought, perhaps a prayer, in order to honor those that sacrificed so much for our freedom and safety.

On to what is in the news that is worth a comment, jab or two.

My favorite has to be Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s on air comment ‘the rich do not pay their share’ in taxes. Apparently, Mr. Nick Gillespie of reason TV took issue with Ms Clinton’s comment and produced a video titled ‘Is Hillary Clinton right to say the rich don’t pay their fair share of taxes’.

Now, Ms Clinton, who is as cuddly as a porcupine, says she was not speaking for the Obama Administration.  Okay, Ms Clinton, your purpose of being on camera is/was a personal appearance that had absolutely nothing to do with you current job?  Any time you offer your personal opinion, you are offering the opinion of the administration, because you are a very large part of that administration.

As for the term ‘fair share’.  What is the Socialist Liberal definition of ‘fair share’?  If I go out with friends and have dinner, what is my fair share of the bill?  Do I turn to my friends and say, well you make more money than I do, so you should pay more, that is your ‘fair share’?

The top 10% of American taxpayers pay over half of all income tax.  The lower 40% pay ‘no income tax’ yet receive the majority of the benefits.  Well, excluding the current administration and their awarding of our tax dollars to Wall St millionaires, Social Elites and Socialist billionaires, in a ‘fair’ society tax dollars normally benefit the majority.

Over taxing the rich simply punishes success.  If there is no reward for success, who will bother?  This very issue is what has destroyed every Socialist Society that has ever been in existence.  Socialism does not work, never has, never will.

BP rolled out the red, well sand, carpet for President Obama’s visit to the Gulf of Mexico.  According to Jamie Wearing Fool BP bused in temporary employees to cleanup the beaches for Obama’s visit.

Well, we all figured this would be a carefully choreographed photo op for the current occupant of the White House, but little did we know having their boot firmly on the neck of BP meant the folks at BP were obliged to send in some stooges for the visuals. I guess the goons from SEIU were off harassing some bank workers or getting an early start on the holiday weekend and weren’t available. Or maybe Organizing for America didn’t factor stuff like this into their budget. I saw a report earlier from Grand Isle and the place was a virtual ghost town. Seems they have to pay the folks to show up.

Perhaps you saw news footage of President Obama in Grand Isle, La., on Friday and thought things didn’t look all that bad. Well, there may have been a reason for that: The town was evidently swarmed by an army of temp workers to spruce it up for the president and the national news crews following him.

Jefferson Parish Councilman Chris Roberts, whose district encompasses Grand Isle, told Yahoo! News that BP bused in “hundreds” of temporary workers to clean up local beaches. And as soon as the president was en route back to Washington, the workers were clearing out of Grand Isle too, Roberts said.

Special added bonus: The bused-in workers making things pristine for The One.

Of course BP claims this was no stunt, that they were just performing business as usual.

Gee, they are even looking for workers.  They must be really hard to find with all the oil drilling and fisheries shut down.

This was a staged photo op without a doubt.  The President wants to look good on camera.  He has ignored the responsibility for this incident and wants to appear in command.  However, while he claims to be too busy to meet with Congressman, Governors and private citizens who offer solutions, he still finds time to vacation, play golf, play basketball, go on dates, attend political events, etc… people can’t you see that the man is just too busy to be bothered with this oil spill.  I mean the responsibilities of being President are seriously inconvient to the man’s lifestyle.  Not to mention the damage being done to his Socialist political ambitions to be President of the World.

Speaking of political ambitions, the one place the President decides to cut funding is of course the U. S. Coast Guard’s pollution response center.   According to a recent Washington Post article ‘Critics say plan to cut Coast Guard personnel will harm readiness for crises’.

Three months before the massive BP oil spill erupted in the Gulf of Mexico, the Obama administration proposed downsizing the Coast Guard national coordination center for oil spill responses, prompting its senior officers to warn that the agency’s readiness for catastrophic events would be weakened.

That proposal is feeding a mounting debate over whether the federal government is able to regulate deep-sea oil extraction. Defense analysts and retired agency leaders question whether the Coast Guard — which shares oversight of offshore drilling with the Interior Department’s Minerals Management Service — has the expertise and resources to keep pace with industry advances.

Accidents happen, “but what you’re seeing here is the government is not properly set up to deal with this kind of issue,” said Robbin Laird, a defense consultant who has worked on Coast Guard issues. “The idea that you would even think about getting rid of catastrophic environmental spill equipment or expertise at the Department of Homeland Security, are you kidding me?”

“Cutting a strike team is nuts,” said Stephen Flynn, a former Coast Guard commander and now president of the Center for National Policy, a Washington think tank. “Whether it’s an accident of man or an act of terrorism, it requires almost the exact same skill set to clean it up.”

President Obama’s $10.1 billion spending plan for the Coast Guard would scale back funding and active-duty personnel by 3 percent. As part of a proposal to cut 1,100 military personnel, it would decommission the National Strike Force Coordination Center in Elizabeth City, N.C., and reorganize parts of it elsewhere.

In a statement, Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Kent.), ranking Republican on the House Appropriations homeland security subcommittee, said, “If we’re going to rely on the Coast Guard to secure our borders, stop Caribbean drug traffickers, respond to earthquakes, counter terrorist threats, and stop one of the largest oil spills in American history, we’d had better resource these frontline agencies appropriately.”

Every Democrat President since Carter has either reduced the Coast Guard or simply attempted to do away with it all together.  I believe this has to do with one of two things.  Either they are totally ignorant of importance the Coast Guard has to this nation, or they simply cannot tolerate government efficiency on the level that the Coast Guard provides it.  In other words, the Coast Guard makes all the other federal agencies look bad.

The truth is that the American taxpayer gets more bang for the buck out of the U. S. Coast Guard than they do any other federal agency.  With an active duty force that is smaller than the NYC police department the Coast Guard conducts operations World Wide.  They are the model navy that the majority of the World’s countries attempt to be.  They provide services far above and beyond what any other federal agency is capable of.

I could write a book on this subject, but needless to say, when President Socialist goes looking for some place to cut the budget, he could easily find Trillions of dollars of waste in his own Socialist programs.  He should not be looking into cutting the budget of the very personnel that provide the greatest services at the lowest costs and protect this nation.  The man is a financial moron and this line of thinking proves it.

Well, that is all I have time for Today folks.  I will leave you with a few entertaining videos.  This first one is a bear doing ninja tricks with a stick, though it kind of resembles a majorette thing to me.

Kung foo fighting looks more like this.

Okay, maybe not, but at least the song was the right one 🙂  Okay, as a last resort, I will try the most funny video clip in the World.  Well, that is the title anyway.

Have a great Memorial Day All.


Chris Matthews Praises Rush For Mocking Clinton

May 29, 2010

MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews offered a bit praise to Rush Limbaugh for his impersonation of former President Bill Clinton.  Mr Limbaugh was making light of the former President’s standard of truth, or lack thereof.


Ms Peggy Noonan Suggests President Obama Is Incompetent

May 29, 2010

In her latest opinon piece at WSJ online, Ms Peggy Noonan notes ‘He Was Supposed To Be Competent’ in reference to President Obama.  In regards to his actions this past year, she notes that he has been anything but competent.

I don’t see how the president’s position and popularity can survive the oil spill. This is his third political disaster in his first 18 months in office. And they were all, as they say, unforced errors, meaning they were shaped by the president’s political judgment and instincts.

There was the tearing and unnecessary war over his health-care proposal and its cost. There was his day-to-day indifference to the views and hopes of the majority of voters regarding illegal immigration. And now the past almost 40 days of dodging and dithering in the face of an environmental calamity. I don’t see how you politically survive this.

The president, in my view, continues to govern in a way that suggests he is chronically detached from the central and immediate concerns of his countrymen. This is a terrible thing to see in a political figure, and a startling thing in one who won so handily and shrewdly in 2008. But he has not, almost from the day he was inaugurated, been in sync with the center. The heart of the country is thinking each day about A, B and C, and he is thinking about X, Y and Z. They’re in one reality, he’s in another.

The American people have spent at least two years worrying that high government spending would, in the end, undo the republic. They saw the dollars gushing night and day, and worried that while everything looked the same on the surface, our position was eroding. They have worried about a border that is in some places functionally and of course illegally open, that it too is gushing night and day with problems that states, cities and towns there cannot solve.

In his news conference Thursday, President Obama made his position no better. He attempted to act out passionate engagement through the use of heightened language—”catastrophe,” etc.—but repeatedly took refuge in factual minutiae. His staff probably thought this demonstrated his command of even the most obscure facts. Instead it made him seem like someone who won’t see the big picture. The unspoken mantra in his head must have been, “I will not be defensive, I will not give them a resentful soundbite.” But his strategic problem was that he’d already lost the battle. If the well was plugged tomorrow, the damage will already have been done.

The original sin in my view is that as soon as the oil rig accident happened the president tried to maintain distance between the gusher and his presidency. He wanted people to associate the disaster with BP and not him. When your most creative thoughts in the middle of a disaster revolve around protecting your position, you are summoning trouble. When you try to dodge ownership of a problem, when you try to hide from responsibility, life will give you ownership and responsibility the hard way. In any case, the strategy was always a little mad. Americans would never think an international petroleum company based in London would worry as much about American shores and wildlife as, say, Americans would. They were never going to blame only BP, or trust it.

I wonder if the president knows what a disaster this is not only for him but for his political assumptions. His philosophy is that it is appropriate for the federal government to occupy a more burly, significant and powerful place in America—confronting its problems of need, injustice, inequality. But in a way, and inevitably, this is always boiled down to a promise: “Trust us here in Washington, we will prove worthy of your trust.” Then the oil spill came and government could not do the job, could not meet the need, in fact seemed faraway and incapable: “We pay so much for the government and it can’t cap an undersea oil well!”

What continues to fascinate me is Mr. Obama’s standing with Democrats. They don’t love him. Half the party voted for Hillary Clinton, and her people have never fully reconciled themselves to him. But he is what they have. They are invested in him. In time—after the 2010 elections go badly—they are going to start to peel off. The political operative James Carville, the most vocal and influential of the president’s Gulf critics, signaled to Democrats this week that they can start to peel off. He did it through the passion of his denunciations.

The disaster in the Gulf may well spell the political end of the president and his administration, and that is no cause for joy. It’s not good to have a president in this position—weakened, polarizing and lacking broad public support—less than halfway through his term. That it is his fault is no comfort. It is not good for the stability of the world, or its safety, that the leader of “the indispensable nation” be so weakened. I never until the past 10 years understood the almost moral imperative that an American president maintain a high standing in the eyes of his countrymen.

Taken in context, everything Ms Noonan relates has merit, except for the idea that the President was ever vetted as being competent to peform the duries of President in the first place.

The lame stream media spent more time vetting Joe The Plumber than they did vetting Barrack Obama.  They sent one hundred investigative hacks to Alaska looking for dirt on Ms Sarah Palin.  They never sent one person into the city of Chicago looking for anything other than rainbows and unicorns when it came to Barrack Obama.  Trust me, there is plenty of dirt in the man’s closet if anyone should care to look.

President Obama’s resume is a very thin example of a man that spent the majority of his life spending other people’s money on Socialist programs. 

He had never ran a business, or been in charge of anything more than a campaign and many of the items listed on resume just do not truly reflect what he actually accomplished.

For instance, he was never a college law professor.  The people that worked with him suggest that he was politically appointed and never too the job seriously, thus he was never considered an asset to the teaching community. You would think at least one reporter would be interested in that little tidbit of information.

Like his duties as a state Senator, a member of the House and Senate, each job listed in Barrack Obama’s resume was simply a stepping stone to the next level.  He never took the job seriously, or performed the job in the manner required of the office held.  He was a Senator for barely a year when he began his campaign for President.   Few fellow Senators even recall his presence.

Now, as he campaigns for President of the World, people wonder if President Obama is incompetent to perform the duties of President?   My question is, at what point in time was he ever vetted to be competent in the first place?

We can place the blame for this whole disaster at the feet of the lame stream media who have proven beyond a shadow of doubt that they are definetly incompetent and totally incapable of vetting someone for the nation’s highest office.

Case in point.  The disaster speaks for himself 🙂
