I will use this blog to do three things. One, provide a voice of opposition to the liberal controlled government. Two, to track their progress on promises they made to get elected (to see if they ever deliver.) Three, to vent, educate, and to work through my own frustration. Please read the ground rules if you wish to respond to this blog.

There are financial experts that are not on the government's payroll talking about a day when all this spending our brilliant Marxist government is spending is going to come back and bite us right on our butts. It is going to be bad, really bad.
Here is why:
We don't produce anything in the U.S.A anymore. Take a look around you. Your T.V., your toaster, your car, your phone, anything, most of it, I will bet 75% of it is made outside the U.S. Tell, me what do you produce at work? Me? I make money when people move money, but I don't make anything, I don't produce something out of raw materials. Almost no one does in the U.S. Almost all the people in the U.S. work in middle man industries reliant on others producing and still others buying.
So, what we have is rampant unemployment. Because people are not buying from each other. I bet a shinny nickle that you bought less this year than last. This means your neighbor made less this year than last, buys less from you, and so on.
So where does this lead us? For most of you, you're out there thinking, "soon it will get back to normal and the recession will be over." You're wrong. There is no going back to normal. Something is happening and you better get prepared.
Here is the signs and there is more than one economist out there screaming his head off trying to get people to listen.
Your going to wake up one morning and the Dollar, the Pound, and many other currencies are going to be down 10-25%. You won't know it, because they don't report this kind of thing. For a few days, nothing will change, but then after a few days, there will be a meeting with world leaders who will hold a summit on a new world currency and within days the dollar will crash, What happens next is weeks if not months of chaos, confusion and economic devastation.
When this happens, you will have a small window. If you are watching the dollar, you'll see it drop, there will then be a loll when nothing happens. If you were smart, you would go out and buy a ton of durable goods and food stuffs. By the time the government lest you know, it will be too late.
Here is the best place to watch the dollar: http://www.fxstreet.com/rates-charts/usdollar-index/
And for those of you who think this could never happen, ask yourself two simple question:
How long could you spend like this government and not go completely bankrupt?
Why would this liberal Marxist government want to stop it from happening?
If it happens, they get what they always wanted, a New World Order, one currency, and the complete death of democracy and capitalism.
Still think it's a stretch?

He bowed to the Emperor of Japan.
Not a big deal you say?
You are a moron, I say.
Here is the leader of the free world bowing to the Emperor of a foreign country. If that is not a big deal, what is? How many times is he going to have to show you what he believes in before you stop listening to what he is telling you he believes in? It is just another in a long line of ACTIONS that speak louder than words. His actions tell us that he is ready and willing to bow to others as he wants the U.S. to bow to others.
Then the White House denied that he bowed.
ARE YOU SERIOUS? How many times is this administration going to get caught on tape or in a photograph before they realize that that EVERYONE HAS A CAMERA IN THEIR CELLPHONE? How are these idiots running our country?
He didn't mean anything by it, you say.
Oh, my foolish feeble minded Obamacrack junkie, I say.
There are only two scenarios here. One, he knew exactly what he was doing. OR two, he and his staff are so incompetent, so inept, so "can't find their asses with both hands" stupid that no one told him of the hailstorm Clinton caused in 1994 by only slightly bowing to the Emperor. Better yet, they are so inanely brainless and dimwitted that they could not remember that they were raked across the coals less than a year ago when Obamassiah bowed to the Saudi Prince and caught all hell from it.
So Obamacrack heads, which one do you want? A leader who willingly bows to another government knowing full well that the action speaks volumes about his true intentions for this country, OR a leader and administration who is too incredibly stupid to know that bowing is the wrong protocol. (Don't give me the 'his staff didn't know' crap either. What is he paying these people for?)
Either one is fine with me.

But they are not, and they are failing.
Network news used to charge $280,000 for a 25 second commercial. Now they are reporting that they can only get $130,000. Newspapers have lost 30-60% of their readers in the last two years, Top magazines are printing less than half as much as they did a year ago.
Why would they let the biggest liar, the easiest mark, the village idiot, and the corrupt Chicago politics bastard child get a free pass? What is their end game?
Then it dawned on me. . .
State controlled media.
They all want him to succeed. When he succeeds, freedom dies, capitalism dies, free markets die, and the government will control the media. This is their end game. They want a piece of the pie when he makes his move to control the media. They want to be left standing, even if he controls them.
Short sited liberal Morons.
If only they had a model to test to see if it worked. Like a cable news channel that caters only to liberal thought. A joint venture between really rich ivory tower types and liberal news people. One where they could spew out all the liberal propaganda they wanted and see who was listening.
Apparently no one.
During the news cycle of the Fort Hood shootings in November 2009 more people were watching Animal Planet then CNN or MSNBC. Ouch! More people were interested in the dead Crocodile Hunter than what the talking heads at CNN or MSNBC had to say.
And you think your chances are better with state run media?
Three times as many people watched FOX news. Oh and remember, we all own guns, cling to our religions, and get our information from Glen. Oh and if it hadn't occurred to you, we will be the only ones left who have gold to buy anything with. Hey liberal media brainiacs, you bet on the wrong horse. Half of the country is against you. Of the remaining half, more of them would rather watch a rerun of a dead guy than listen to you.
Sucking up to Obamessiah doesn't sound so good now does it?
Wednesday, November 4, 2009
Visitors appear out of nowhere. Before people know the truth they suck every small minded, freebie wanting, city dwelling, person into their cult by promising anything they want.
They gave them free health care. But it is not what it seems. The underlying truth is that universal health care is nothing more than a ploy to exploit the people. (Oh and to make sure the food chain is disease free.)
They tried to silence their critics, control the media, and eliminate anyone who opposes their plan.
They convince the youth that their parents are bad and know nothing about what the world is facing.
But, they are not what they seem. They have been planning this for years. Infiltrating the highest levels of government, military, organizations and sports teams.
The visitors don't care about the people of earth, they want to have power over them, make them do what they say, oh and eat them.
Glen Beck makes an appearance too, right before a little ball of death tries to kill him for starting the revolution. Glen lives and becomes a galvanizing force that will destroy the V's.
Wow. Sounds like the last year and a half. (But, Obamessiah is not as good looking as Inara Serra, I mean Morena Baccarin.)
I can't wait to see how it ends. Oh right. I know how it ends.
Let me start by letting you in on three little known secrets.
1. Americans are the stupidest educated people on the face of the planet. Half of the country went from being a massive lie detector able to tell with 100% certainty that George W. was lying, to slobbering, nodding, chill up their pants ninnies, that cannot detect a lie when it is being read from a teleprompter by their never truthful snake charmer. Stupid people. When are you going to learn that governments lie. That is what they do.
2. Saving jobs is not an economic principle. You either loose jobs or create them. You don't save them. Think of it this way. If you have a town where everyone is employed in two factories. if the government closes down one factory eliminating half the towns jobs, they don't get to claim they saved the other half. Morons. And you believed them?
3. Glen Beck is Zeus. Listen to anyone who is anti Beck. Do they debate the issues? Nope. Do the open a debate about policy, people, ideas? Not a chance. They bash him as a person. That is all they can do. He is dead on. He is two weeks ahead of the liberal media. He single handedly started the revolution. Hey progressive dorks, keep underestimating him. Keep thinking he's a right winged nut.
Isn't that what England thought of the wacked out freedom freaks in the new colonies? They were just a bunch of reject farmers. What could possibly happen?
Of course Obamassiah and his media lackeys say that the tea parties and astro turf nuts are nothing to worry about. They have to be telling the truth right?
Did you already forget the first secret I told you? Morons.

It isn't because I had nothing to say.
It is because my frequent use of the word Obamacrack and other drug terms caused my internet filter to block my own blog. It then was blocked for hate (because of my tone towards government and particularly Liberals, and then for racism because in one of my pieces I told you that I must be a racist because i disagree with Obama.
What is amazing is what I told you would happen is happening. go back and read my entries and you'll see. What I told you was going to happen is happening. Useless government.
But the best part is those stupid, astro turfing, paid, mob mentality, ignorant, Fox News Junkies and overall wonderful people are starting to take back the government. It isn't the Republicans, it is regular people who now realize that the silent majority cannot be silent anymore.
Revolution baby! Bring it on!
Wednesday, April 29, 2009
Here were the ten things he promised and how I feel he is doing.
1. End the war in Iraq.
Nope. He got into he oval office and got a real briefing on what is going on and decided to keep the troops where they were. Oh, and just in case that war didn't go well, he spent the first three weeks of his administration doing everything he can to make USweaker and a prime target for the next attack. So he can have his own war.
2. Make the U.S. energy independent.
No drilling, no clean coal, no nuclear reactors. Nope we are still as hooked to the middle east oil. I sure hope that they get the windmills up and running because Obama's energy plan BLOWS! (or sucks depending on which way the windmill is turned.)
3. Create Jobs.
Yep, he created hundreds of shovel ready jobs. Too bad his fiscal policy ruined any traction we once had and millions of real people who had real jobs (you know good paying non-shovel using jobs) are out of work.
4. Bring unity to the U.S. Listen to the other side of the isle.
Five words: Most divisive President in history. He only stretched his hand across the isle to slap a seventy-year-old war veteran and to steal all the cash he had in his wallet.
5. Repair our economy
Yep. it sure "Feels" like our economy is coming around. Too bad we financed what little success this Blowhole gave us with every last dime of our children's future. I look at my not quite teenage daughter and shed a tear. She doesn't even have a chance. He has already spent her future to get what he wanted right now.
6. Bring down the cost of health care/ universal health care
Being uninsured. I hoped that this might get somewhere. But, nope. All we get is a "down payment." Kind of like layaway. You pay as you go, then you get to keep it, only to find out you don't want it anyway.
7. Tax cuts for the middle class under $250,000.
Nope, with cap and trade and letting Bush's tax cuts expire, every person in the U.S. (except those who don't pay taxes) are going to be paying more. Just think, he didn't raise taxes at all, and still was able to lie to your face as he slipped his hand into your pocket. Dirty Pervert!
8. Improve foreign relations.
Well, if you think that being apologetic and conciliatory to terrorists, bowing to foreign oil cartels, and not understanding U.S History good foreign relations, yep he's 100%.
9. Keep America safe.
Not in a million years. He quietly selling us off, pimping us out, and destroying the U.S.'s ability to strike back. You'd be a fool if you didn't recognize the yellow bastard. One of the first things he did was appease the Muslim extremists. Yeah good luck with that one. I hope they cut off his outstretched hand.
10. Solve the entitlement programs of Social Security and Medicare.
What people don;' understand is that this is a time bomb. It is the exact same issue GM is dealing with. GM is about to go bust under his omnipotent leadership. So is medicare and SS.
So where does this leave us? While the main stream media is having their Obamaffair, the rest of us are going to have to figure out if we have enough ammo yet to take back our country, and at what point we say enough is enough?
Nope the first 100 days on ObamaCrack was enough for me. I'd like to be sober please.

You are obviously on Obamacrack!
Obama hasn't got a clue and you are too stupid to recognize it because you are blinded by all the flash bulbs going off with this paparazzi farce of a president to see that he is the biggest joke in history. I didn't much like Bush, but at least everyone knew of his short comings INCLUDING HIM. Obama in all his hubris can't find his political butt with both hands and the media, all of his loyal subjects and people too stupid to know the difference between a statesman and a snake oil salesman keep giving him a pass.
So ask yourself:
If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics,would you have approved? (He would have been vilified by the liberal media. Don't think for one second they would have let him off the hook as saying it was a poor attempt at humor.)
If George W. Bush had given Tony Blair a set of inexpensive and useless (to Tony Blair's UK video formatting) DVDs, when Tony Blair had given him thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved? (This is a slap in the face and proves that he hasn't got a clue. A DVD? Are you kidding me? Might as well have been porn.)
If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have approved? (What a narcissist! What kind of people are whispering in this idiots ear? 'Yeah Bro, I bet the Queen would love to sit with her feet up and just listen to your silky, smooth voice.' 'Heh, heh, dude, you said silky.')
If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved? (If another liberal media bafoon tells me that he didn't bow, I am gonna puke. It is one thing to lie about landing in in a war zone when there are no cameras. It is another to lie when it is on film for everyone to see. Why would you lie about it? How stupid is this guy? Let's examine exhibit A shall wee. . .)
If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip? (Hey Liberal media! Isn't this the exact issue you had with Phalin? Turns out your horse doesn't know anything more than she did, and had less experience to boot.)
If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current on their income taxes, would you have approved? (This is the biggest hypocrisy and the smoking gun of this president. Ever wonder why liberals want to spend YOUR money, but they can't seem to pay THIER OWN Taxes? If Socialism, or whatever they are trying to pass it off as this week, works so well, why are they not paying in all their income? Or why are they not paying their taxes AT ALL? Obama is a puppet, a troll, and a fool, but he sure knows who should be running our government, people with none of their money in it.)
If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved? (This one chaps my hide. If I were the CEO of that company I would have introduce Obama to my middle finger, more than once. Notice that he used public frenzy to make rash decisions? This man has no concept of standing firm, standing for what is right, or having morals. He just does whatever he thinks will get him more power. Narcissistic hubris, pure and simple.)
If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved? (Well, Bush did actually and he did it the same way Obama is doing it just not on the scale Obama is. But that is not the point! The point is that Obama is lying to you when he says that he has intentions or any other notion to cut taxes. Here's why. He can lower taxes and then take on more debt over a longer period that is exactly the same thing. it is like you paying your car off with a home equity line of credit. You owe more now, but the payments are smaller, but you have to pay for a longer period of time!)
If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10years, would you have approved? (No one would, but you and the liberal media are giving him a pass! He doesn't care about you, or the U.S. Want to know how I know? Stop and think, don't let the media, or your hate for GW cloud your vision, don't let his smooth tongue slip you into an obamacrack coma, stop and listen to what he says. He told you he wouldn't pass a bill unless you had time to read it. He passed the spendulis before even congress could read it. He said he was going to make politics more transparent, yet he is signing bills without media scrutiny, and without your input. He said he wasn't going to put lobbyists in government positions, but he did that too. For someone who cries "change is coming" he has done nothing to change it at all. He is the worst kind of liar. He does it to your face and you don't care.)
So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? (Nothing. I am not impressed with a man who had every opportunity in his first 100 days to make good on the promises that he bought the election with. He has done everything in his power to show his followers that they were sheep following a wolf back into a boxed canyon, and yet his sheep are still crying out his name in praise as he thrashes them to pieces.)
Thursday, April 9, 2009
The Obamacrak Heads want you tho think that the world was screwed up by George Bush, and that Obama is here to save the day and correct all the wrongs with his powerful mouth. They want you to believe that you cannot take care of yourself, and that the government is here to save the day. They believe that religion and family values are outdated, and that freedom means what the government wants you to believe it is. They believe that a murderer on death row's life is precious, but an unborn baby is just a choice. They want to save the planet even if that means not saving the human race. They want energy independence, but are not willing to drill anywhere in the U.S. which leaves us a slave to Mid-East oil. They believe that the U.S. should apologize, unilaterally disarm, and present ourselves to the world for trial and give into the U.N. to be ruled by the New World Order. (Too harsh? I was trying to go for the full impact. Oh, I got it? Good, thanks.)
On the other hand. . .
Rush junkies want you to believe that Obama represents the end of all things sacred and good in the U.S. They want the government to sleek back into he shadows so that unscrupulous big business can screw the people again. They believe that there should be a gun in every home and a Bible on every night stand. They believe that the government should butt out and let us live our lives. They believe the government should get out of the way of the constitution. They believe that a baby is precious, but we should be building electric benches to send all the murderers and terrorist to. They believe America should be strong so everyone else should just get out of the way and let us dominate. They want to drill all over the U.S. for oil, get rid of the Mid-East dependency, and become self efficient. They want to pollute the world to make a buck. They want judges to quit legislating from the bench, and for Congress to quit spending everyone elses money. (did I go far enough? I am not sure I captured a Liberals angst.... Oh well. I tried.)
Then there is the rest of us. We are somewhere in the middle, going to work, spending money, not really paying attention to what happens in Washington DC 'caus it really doesn't matter. I mean, if it really mattered, my income would stop, my credit cards wouldn't work, and the grocery store wouldn't be full waiting for me to buy stuff. Oh yeah, if it really mattered, Lexus wouldn't be selling $80k cars and people wouldn't be buying flat screen T.V.'s, right?
I am mean how bad could it get? I still have a job right? I still have money? Why do I need to listen to what is going on with our government? So they spend a lot, nothing is new. Yeah and there seems to be a war brewing, but hey, that doesn't effect where I am buying fast food today. Right? Come on, if things were really going bad, the news would tells us right? They would have our best interest at heart. I mean, come on, isn't all of this going to wash away in a couple of years? You know when the stock market rebounds and we all make our money back?
When the masses in the middle stop listening, do you know who gets louder? The people on the far left and right. You want to know why? Because the more you don't listen, the more there is to lose. I guess in their eyes, the more their is to gain. Control of your future is at stake, right now. The decisions you are not making right now, standing up for what you believe in and voicing your opinions, and making demands of your leaders will effect us the rest of our lives. The fact that most people are staying quiet is the most disconcerting aspect of everything that is happening right now.
Do you think the Romans thought they would be superior forever? What about the Persians? The Khans? the English? Do you think they knew that their empire and era of prosperity was about to end? Or were they more worried about what's for dinner, or what they can buy with the change they had in their pocket?
I guess the middle masses were about as aware as the Rest of Us.
Do you know what is sad? China knows.
Hey middle masses! You know any Chinese?
Better start learning.

For the same reason I don't carry my cell phone around with me anymore. Not for two years now.
My business allows me to meet with a lot of people. I once had lunch with a very successful business man, when my cell phone rang. At the time, I had made it clear to all my clients that they could call me anytime and I would pick up the phone. So I did. I excused myself politely and took the call. When I came back, I was taught one of the most important lessons I have ever had.
I apologized to the business owner, after all, it wasn't a business meeting, we were just having lunch and talking about his business. He accepted, then told me something I will never forget.
"Life was simpler when people could only reach us on our terms." He said. "Just because people can reach you, doesn't mean that they should. The day is fast coming when we will not know when enough is enough, and society's eagerness to communicate will corrode our ability to communicate. We will all be trying to say so much, that what everyone says will mean nothing."
Since that day, I told clients to call me at my business, during business hours and I would be happy to talk with them. I told friends to call me at home at appropriate times, and kept my cell phone for emergencies and for my family.
I am much happier. Work stays at work, and I am not tied to my phone like an addict tied to his meth. Facebook was becoming the same thing. Just because people can access information about each other doesn't mean they should.
But more importantly for me, It is one less thing I have to worry about during the day.
Friday, April 3, 2009
So I put my head down at work and started to focus on saving my business, earning “Screw You, Obama” money and making sure I would last through this crisis. By doing so, I actually became apathetic. I couldn’t change the fact that political novice Obama and Queen Pelosi were setting a foundation that we will never recover from, so I changed my business and got my own house in order (gardens, food storage, guns and ammo, etc.( no I am not kidding)). I didn’t have time to worry about what I cannot change until the next election.
What I found was bliss. My garden is producing food on an almost daily basis now. I am comfortable knowing that if all hell breaks loose I have enough to at least survive. Watching food grow is incredibly hypnotic and calming. Planting something and seeing it break through the dirt and become greed, or flower, or turn into something you can eat is amazingly blissful. It is quite reminder that God is in control and we only need to align ourselves with his will.
Which brings me to my next phase of warning.
I only write this blog for myself and usually the only ones who ever read where my friends and family. So this is for them as well as anyone who reads. . .
1. This is not a normal recession. Do not believe anyone who tells you that this will be over soon and we will get back to normal. There is no normal. There are new factors involved now that have never been involved before. There will be a new economy, one we have never seen before, and it will not be kind to us as it stabilizes.
a. Banks are still not lending to businesses at the level that is necessary to function. Many, many small businesses are at the brink of failure. Small businesses employ 40-50% of the U.S. population. IF they fail, larger and larger businesses will fail too.
b. Commercial real estate is beginning to falter and foreclose just as the housing did a yar ago. The same signs are there and it will have the same if not a larger effect then what has happened so far.
c. We do not produce much anymore. Almost 63% of our GDP is based on the “exchange” of products and services not in production. This means that it is like dominos. One business fails and that will affect ten others that will affect ten others. Look at people you know, think about what they do for a living. Do they make something or do they service, exchange, or support those who do? All those jobs are in jeopardy.
2. Your government is not your government. They no longer represent you.
a. Whether you like Obama or not, one thing is very clear. He has no intention of keeping any of his promises. Line for line, all the promises he made in speeches and on the campaign, have fallen away. He has kept none of them. Since taking office he has paid back every favor, every donor, and every special interest group that put him in office, at incredible disregard to you, its citizens and the country in whole. He had plenty of opportunity to do what he promised, but never did.
b. The Congress and the Senate are no longer listening to their constituents. They do not care. There has never been a time where so many people are out do what is best for them, not the country. It is appalling to see our system abused in this way.
c. You can’t do anything right now. Until there is an election all you can do is wait. Our only hope is that enough people in the middle will see that they need to oust congress and senate to get new people with more level heads into the mix. Our only hope is to replace as many people as we can with new ones.
3. Debt is crippling the country.
a. In less than 12 months we have pledge to spend 4.6 years of tax revenue (when the economy is good). This is like saying that you make $100k and you have $100k in debt, so to solve the problem you take on $460k in new debt to solve the old debt. But here is the kicker, in a recession your salary is going to be cut 40%. How are you going to repay the new debt with less when you couldn’t repay the old one?
b. Your government wants you to think that they are the only ones who can save you. They will promise everything and produce nothing but make new promises to cover that up. How do they do it? By putting you in debt. You pay taxed now, not because the government uses the money to make your life better, but to finance promises that can never be kept, and new promises to hide that fact. Once it begins it will never end. Governments are like freight trains; once they get rolling nothing short of derailment will stop it.
c. Your children will have less opportunity, not more. All you need to do is look to the past and you will see that all empires die and new ones will begin. China will be the next super power. They are the only ones that are funding our debt, and your children will pay for it deeply. The U.S. will shrink back into socialistic oblivion and will feed off the scraps from China just as Europe did from us the last 100 years. Look to China for opportunities, maybe have your children learn Chinese.
4. It will be a tough transition.
a. The dollar is exactly like the stock of a company. It is the stock of the U.S. Right now it is being held up in the exact same way that Enron held up their stock. The government has four sets of books, barrowing huge amounts of money from outside and from each of the books. It will fail, just like Enron.
b. Think it can’t happen? Why? DO you think the U.S is so important that the rest of the world will not let it fail? That is like saying that other companies will support Enron so it won’t fail. Watch closely to what is happening with Russia and China, they are pushing for things that erode the U.S’s economy and guess who is slapping them on the back and agreeing to it. Your president.
c. Hillary Clinton has already used land rights to secure loans from China. What does that mean? It means when we can’t pay, they get land in the U.S. What land? Well, that is the question isn’t it? China may just want the northern half Alaska. And believe me, they won’t have a problem sucking ALL the oil out of the ground. All you green idiots will be shot on sight when you try to protest it.
d. The Dollar will fail. There will be a time when nothing is available because of hyper inflation. People don’t want to sell a load of potatoes for $500 when that $500 might be only worth $50 the very next day. You will need your own storage, and your own bartering chips to survive the 3-6 months until it is stabilized. Gee, three to six months, where have I heard this before?
e. When we come out, we will not know what to do, and most people will have to restructure their lives to survive. We will all have to get back to basics. You will not be making $100K a year selling anything.
Could I be wrong. I pray I am. I am not taking any chances though. I would rather be prepared for it and have it not happen then be right and not be prepared.
For those who have ears let them hear.

I can't get close enough to protest. There is no "sanctioned area" for protesters. I guess he hasn't ticked off enough people yet.
It makes me sad, so here is what I would have put on my signs and held them high.
"You Lied. You brought no hope or change to Washington."
"You lied. Your government is not transparent."
"You & Congress just robbed the American people."
I have to admit, I feel helpless. There are so many things wrong with what is going on right now, and most people don't care.
I can't figure out how to make a difference. If the silent majority stays silent, the loudest of the minority takes over. If we don't put up a fight, we will always lose.
Friday, February 13, 2009
I voted Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I've decided to marry my dog (as soon as she is 18; I'm not a pedophile).
I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.
I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.
I voted Democrat because freedom of speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.
I voted Democrat because when we pull out of Iraq I trust that the bad guys will stop what they're doing because they now think we're good people.
I voted Democrat because I'm way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.
I voted Democrat because I believe that people who can't tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don't start driving a Prius.
I voted Democrat because I'm not concerned about the slaughter of millions of babies so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.
I voted Democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as THEY see fit.
I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite The Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters. Face it; this is the legacy of "multiculturalism."
I voted Democrat because I like that idea that a tax cheat could become the tax chief.
I voted Democrat because my head is so firmly planted up my A-- that it is unlikely that I'll ever have another point of view. (Party loyalty is very powerful--and it excuses me from learning the truth.)

What happened to that guy?
I'll tell you what happened. HE LIED! THEY ALWAYS LIE!
All you sanctimonious Obamacrack addicts would be in an uproar if this was a Republican. But since he's a fellow liberal all of this is just hunky dory when he lies to your face, and forgets every promise that he made during campaigning. He could sell your soul and all you can think about is "that audacity of hope." If you voted for this Bozo you were taken in the biggest scam in history.
Name one thing he has done that he promised to do? ONE. Not five, ONE! He isn't even trying to do most of the things you voted him to do.
"He's working on the economy." You say.
Really? Let's take a look shall we? He could have worked for a bill that was ONLY stimulus and NONE of the PORK and it would have sailed through congress and the senate and be working for you weeks ago. HE DID NOT DO SO! He could have rained in Queen Pelosi and Prince William to get a bill that would actually help the U.S. HE DID NOT DO SO. He isn't working for you. He has no intentions of working for you. IF HE HAD HE WOULD DO IT ON HIS FIRST ITEMS OF BUSINESS! Why make a poor first impression?
If he really cared about you, about his promises, about the country, he would have made an extra concerted effort to be what he said he was in the first month.
He did not.
What does that tell you?
It has nothing to do with the Republicans. This is how your president is acting.

Illegal aliens do not have rights to trespass on private property. They do not have rights to damage, litter, poop, or walk on a U.S. citizens land without permission.
Welcome to liberal hell. Where people with no rights are given them by a government to stupid to understand that rights are earned not rewarded.

16 illegals sue Arizona rancher
Claim violation of rights as they crossed his land
Jerry Seper (Contact)Monday, February 9, 2009
An Arizona man who has waged a 10-year campaign to stop a flood of illegal immigrants from crossing his property is being sued by 16 Mexican nationals who accuse him of conspiring to violate their civil rights when he stopped them at gunpoint on his ranch on the U.S.-Mexico border.
Roger Barnett, 64, began rounding up illegal immigrants in 1998 and turning them over to the U.S. Border Patrol, he said, after they destroyed his property, killed his calves and broke into his home.
His Cross Rail Ranch near Douglas, Ariz., is known by federal and county law enforcement authorities as "the avenue of choice" for immigrants seeking to enter the United States illegally.
Trial continues Monday in the federal lawsuit, which seeks $32 million in actual and punitive damages for civil rights violations, the infliction of emotional distress and other crimes. Also named are Mr. Barnett's wife, Barbara, his brother, Donald, and Larry Dever, sheriff in Cochise County, Ariz., where the Barnetts live. The civil trial is expected to continue until Friday.
The lawsuit is based on a March 7, 2004, incident in a dry wash on the 22,000-acre ranch, when he approached a group of illegal immigrants while carrying a gun and accompanied by a large dog.
Attorneys for the immigrants - five women and 11 men who were trying to cross illegally into the United States - have accused Mr. Barnett of holding the group captive at gunpoint, threatening to turn his dog loose on them and saying he would shoot anyone who tried to escape.
The immigrants are represented at trial by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), which also charged that Sheriff Dever did nothing to prevent Mr. Barnett from holding their clients at "gunpoint, yelling obscenities at them and kicking one of the women."
In the lawsuit, MALDEF said Mr. Barnett approached the group as the immigrants moved through his property, and that he was carrying a pistol and threatening them in English and Spanish. At one point, it said, Mr. Barnett's dog barked at several of the women and he yelled at them in Spanish, "My dog is hungry and he's hungry for buttocks."
The lawsuit said he then called his wife and two Border Patrol agents arrived at the site. It also said Mr. Barnett acknowledged that he had turned over 12,000 illegal immigrants to the Border Patrol since 1998.
In March, U.S. District Judge John Roll rejected a motion by Mr. Barnett to have the charges dropped, ruling there was sufficient evidence to allow the matter to be presented to a jury. Mr. Barnett's attorney, David Hardy, had argued that illegal immigrants did not have the same rights as U.S. citizens.
Mr. Barnett told The Washington Times in a 2002 interview that he began rounding up illegal immigrants after they started to vandalize his property, northeast of Douglas along Arizona Highway 80. He said the immigrants tore up water pumps, killed calves, destroyed fences and gates, stole trucks and broke into his home.
Some of his cattle died from ingesting the plastic bottles left behind by the immigrants, he said, adding that he installed a faucet on an 8,000-gallon water tank so the immigrants would stop damaging the tank to get water.
Mr. Barnett said some of the ranch´s established immigrant trails were littered with trash 10 inches deep, including human waste, used toilet paper, soiled diapers, cigarette packs, clothes, backpacks, empty 1-gallon water bottles, chewing-gum wrappers and aluminum foil - which supposedly is used to pack the drugs the immigrant smugglers give their "clients" to keep them running.
He said he carried a pistol during his searches for the immigrants and had a rifle in his truck "for protection" against immigrant and drug smugglers, who often are armed.
ASSOCIATED PRESS DEFENDANT: Roger Barnett said he had turned over 12,000 illegal immigrants to the Border Patrol since 1998.
A former Cochise County sheriff´s deputy who later was successful in the towing and propane business, Mr. Barnett spent $30,000 on electronic sensors, which he has hidden along established trails on his ranch. He searches the ranch for illegal immigrants in a pickup truck, dressed in a green shirt and camouflage hat, with his handgun and rifle, high-powered binoculars and a walkie-talkie.
His sprawling ranch became an illegal-immigration highway when the Border Patrol diverted its attention to several border towns in an effort to take control of the established ports of entry. That effort moved the illegal immigrants to the remote areas of the border, including the Cross Rail Ranch.
"This is my land. I´m the victim here," Mr. Barnett said. "When someone´s home and loved ones are in jeopardy and the government seemingly can´t do anything about it, I feel justified in taking matters into my own hands. And I always watch my back."

What would that buy?
Obama says it will save or create 4 million jobs.
If he is correct, each of those 4 million jobs cost us $2,250,000 each. Where do I go to get one of those jobs?
It would also pay for 78% of all the mortgages in America, including every one of the "sub prime" mortgages that caused this whole mess.
Now I ask you, what could you do to help the economy if you no longer had to pay a mortgage payment every month?
If we had this type of money, socked away somewhere in the government's coffers, why wouldn't they pay off all our mortgages?
Answer: The government is no longer here for your benefit. They exist for their own.
Because this money is 'fiat currency' (not backed by gold), not 'specie currency' (backed by gold), your government (both Bush and Obama) have just begun printing money with reckless abandon. We don't have $9 trillion. They just made it up, born from thin air, hoping you didn't notice while you tell the surveyor that Obama get high marks for the job he's doing.
We are a country of elected morons, that we allow to ruin our future, re-elect them to continue to do nothing but pad their own pockets and the pockets of their friends.
It is time to revolt. What would our forefathers have done? Did they sit back and allow the English government to tax and spend for them?

In this chapter Jesus Christ taught the people in parables. Why did he teach them in parables? His reasons were two fold.
First, parables are a unique way of telling everyone a story that has multiple meanings. To some, it meant a nice little story. To others it had deep meaning that they needed to ponder. But to those who knew, it meant specific things in specific ways, that had specific results.
Second, it was a way to convey information out in the open, even though it might not be for everyone who can hear.
Thus the saying, "Let those who have ears hear."
Right now we are in the midst of an economic crisis which the prevailing government has chosen to use to grab power, change the course of our country, disrupt Conservative beliefs and morals, and implement their own. It is nothing less than a pivotal point in our country's development.
They are buying votes with special interest spending.
Right now the president is going on a whirlwind tour to get people to accept his Spedulis Plan. He wants people to pressure congress, no scratch that, Republicans to vote for the bill.
Problem: He doesn't need the votes. If the democrats wanted to pass the bill there is nothing the Republicans can do about it. They just need to vote and be done with it.
But they won't. Not without Republican finger prints on it.
"Let those with ears hear, and those with eyes see."
Why don't the Democrats vote for it pass it and get on with it if it is so important?
Why will they not risk their own political capital by passing it themselves?
Why are they so concerned about Republican support?
"Let those with ears hear, and those with eyes see."
Why don't the democrats scale down the bill, cross over and add some of the Republican ideas to get more support?
Why are democrats hell bent on leaving in spending that has no place in a stimulus bill, that if they took it out, it would have more support?
Why is the president traveling and rallying support for a bill written in congress that the White House only had a small amount of input on?
"Let those with ears hear, and those with eyes see."

So here's some common sense:
You're a moron if you think Obama is going to spend his way out of this recession. Go read about FDR and how his spending didn't stop the depression only WWII did that.
You're a moron if you think that the world is going to be safer with liberals in charge. Muslim extremists don't want to sit around a campfire and sing, give you a hug, or exchange phone numbers. They want to kill you, me and everyone else.
You're a moron if you think that Obama's energy policy is going to help you in any way. He does not want to drill anywhere. He does not want nuclear power. He does not want coal. He does not want to process shell. All he wants to do is tax the oil companies and harness wind and solar. You are simply a moron if you think that is going to help our country.
You're a moron if you think that "sharing wealth" helps you. Obama and his liberal lackeys can spread the wealth around all they want, but it won't ever do two things. One, it will not create jobs. Two, it will not help people climb out of the dole.
You're a moron if you think Global Warming is science rather than political. For years people who did not believe all the rhetoric about G.W. were made fun of. Now it is my turn to laugh. You are a moron if you believe that it is more about science than it is about politics.
You're a moron if you think that the government will create jobs.
You're a moron if you think that congress is there to help you.
You're a moron if you think that actors or actresses in Hollywood should be listened to just because they have a stage to say something.
You're a moron if you listen to the news without thinking, What a bunch of morons.
How did you get to be a moron? Go back and watch more news until you figure it out.

People are unplugging their refrigerators for good, to lessen their carbon footprint.
(ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, breathe, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, wipe tears, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, breathe, ha ha ha ha ha ha whoops, sorry, I wet myself a little.)
No seriously, it's a badge of honor that they can get ride of their refrigerator. See for yourself,
My favorite part of the article is :
"PEOPLE who do best without a refrigerator often have certain built-in lifestyle advantages — they live alone and don’t have to cook large meals for a family, say, or they live on a farm or within walking distance of a grocery store."
So these people, these enlightened ones, who are the shinning light of liberalism and enviromentalnuttyism, live where? Big cities, liberal bastions on either coast?
I once heard a comedian say that if the power went out in NYC that within a week, half the population will cannibalize the other half.
Without fridges, it will happen a lot sooner.
This is stupid because these are the same people who go out to eat at restaurants, WHO USE POWER. They want to shop at grocery stores, THAT USE POWER. They ride public transportation, THAT USE POWER. And they live in cities, THAT USE POWER! What good is giving away your fridge to lesson the "carbon footprint" if everything else you do in your life also takes power?
Idiots. Power monks. Carbon Nazi's. The article actually says we have refrigerator lust. Morons. I got a better way for you to lesson your carbon footprint that won't be so annoying. Move to the woods, take off all your cloths, and live like the animals you think you evolved from. I bet monkey's carbon footprint is ZERO!
Oh, and by the way, the reason that they live alone is not because they don't have a refrigerator, it is because they don't believe in showering either. "Water is precious, why waste it on our bodies."
The great French economist Frédéric Bastiat called politics “the great fiction through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else.”
I want to put something in focus for you. I was a "Community Organizer" in a differnt life. Except I ran a grant to work with gang kids in the early 1990's.
- My budget was more money then Obama's.
- I employed more people than Obama did.
- I got paid 1/10th of what he got paid.
When I was at budgeting meetings, I was told that whatever I did, I needed to expand my budget. I needed to figure out how to use anything, any crisis, any event, I could to get more money from the state, the feds, and from private donnors. That was the name of the game. "Expand while you can."
This governement is using your fears for power grab. But, I still can't figure out what the end game is.
Can someone please tell me what liberals gain if they win the country, but kill the economy?

And people thought GW was an idiot.
Queen Pelosi is a moron.
I bet you didn't know that you lost your job twice yesterday, twice today, and twice every day her spending package isn't approved. This means you have lost your job a total of thirty-two (32) times since Obama took office.
Moron. I can't believe this is who people chose to lead them.
They do not, and are not those people. This congress is the most corrupt congress in the history of your country. they neither care about you, nor do they care about how you feel.
Rep. Jim Cooper, a conservative Democrat from Tennessee, told a liberal radio network on Monday that the Obama White House encouraged him to defy House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the $819 billion economic stimulus bill.
"Well, I probably shouldn't tell you this, but I actually got some quiet encouragement from the Obama folks for what I'm doing," said Cooper, one of only 11 Democrats to vote against the economic stimulus plan that passed the House last week.
"They know it's a messy bill and they wanted a clean bill," he said. "Now, I got in terrible trouble with our leadership because they don't care what's in the bill, they just want it to pass and they want it to be unanimous."
Cooper, whose startling admission came on Liberadio, was one of about 55 House Democrats to sign a letter criticizing Pelosi for suspending debate and committee rules on the fiscal package.
"They don't mind the partisan fighting cause that's what they are used to. In fact, they're really good at it -- and they're a little bit worried about what a post-partisan future might look like," Cooper said during the radio interview. "If members actually had to read the bills and figure out whether they are any good or not. We're just told how to vote. We're treated like mushrooms most of the time."
Still think this government is representing you well? Think that they are doing a good job?
If you do, you're a moron.
I guess I don't have enough money for them to represent me.

Bush stuck by his guns, believed in his morals, did not falter in the face of opposition and was hated.
Clinton swayed like a leaf in the wind, used polls to make policy decisions, crumbled when opposed and was loved by liberals everywhere.
Obama says one thing and does another, talks more about nothing of substance than any president in history, thinks it nothing in saying whatever is necessary to substantiate his position, and is considered a Messiah.
We are one screwed up country.
I am scared at how stupid we have become.
Monday, February 2, 2009
Charlie Rangel, Timothy Geithner, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and most recently Tom Daschle have all NOT paid taxes. That's right all the Dems leadership thinks that it is O.K. for everyone else to pay taxes, as long as they don't have to.
Can they honestly say they didn't know? What idiot believes them? Oh, that's right, Obamacrak addicts that are still filled with hope and excitement from his amazing performance so far. Great job reeling in congress there buddy. You're way ahead of my schedule for ruining this country.
Remember when the Republicans had all thier little issues. People lost their jobs, the media went nuts and the public attacked.
Gosh it's quite. (chirp, chirp) Where is the media now? Where is the public outcry?
I guess that's what I get for having morals, and a job, and paying my taxes.
I'll just grab my ankles.
Here's another marble.

Democrats would have you believe that Bush's Lie about the Iraq WMD was the world biggest, but they are wrong. Their own lie about global warming is the biggest, and has been going on since the 1950's.
This is how governments get brain dead citizens to go along with their agendas. They lie. Then they lie to cover up the lie. Just like a three year old. The problem is there are no adults to call them on the carpet. Most people don't care, don't have time to care, and don't know enough to care. They have been taught to ignore government. Taught by the government to not notice.
So here's when people will care. 10 years from now when the U.S. is nothing more than a "has been," and China and Russia are making all the financial decisions and reaping the rewards. You see, China couldn't give a rat's &$% about global warming. Just like we didn't in the early 20th century. They are going to use all their natural resources and not look back, just like we did. So will Russia. They will grow while we shrink with excess taxes and regulation.
How do I know this? READ HISTORY PEOPLE! We know that China is in the same position we were in in the 1940's after World War II. They are about to explode economically. They have more resources, more people, more savings (Capital), and LESS REGULATION! While your new government is worrying about carbon footprint, China is going to pass us and become the world's super power.
Let me put it another way. We don't make anything anymore. 3 out of 4 jobs in the U.S. exist ONLY because others have the money for excess stuff. Cell phones, Big screen T.V.'s, Luxury cars, bigger houses, processed food. But when we fail as an economy, all of those things go away, so do the jobs. Why would it go away? Oh, I don;t know, maybe because we are borrowing $4 billion dollars a day to just keep afloat? Our government is spending out of control. Look at the indications, they are spending without abandon, without oversight, and without a plan. WHY? because they don't know how to stop what is going on!
We don't recover from this. Either we crash economically, or we regulate ourselves into oblivion. The government is telling you with flashy speeches that everything is going to be O.K.
Remember the title of this piece: All governments lie. Believe them if you want.
Call me a fear monger if you want. The signs of the times don't lie. Neither does history.
Here's proof the the Global warming Lie.
The Amazing Story Behind the Global Warming Scam
By John Coleman
The key players are now all in place in Washington and in state governments across America to officially label carbon dioxide as a pollutant and enact laws that tax we citizens for our carbon footprints.
Only two details stand in the way, the faltering economic times and a dramatic turn toward a colder climate. The last two bitter winters have led the public to be skeptical that any runaway global warning. There is now awareness that there may be reason to question whether CO2 is a pollutant and a significant greenhouse gas.
How did we ever get to this point where bad science is driving big government? And how will we ever stop it?
The story begins with an Oceanographer named Roger Revelle. He served with the Navy in World War II. After the war he became the Director of the Scripps Oceanographic Institute in La Jolla in San Diego, California. Revelle saw the opportunity to obtain major funding from the Navy for doing measurements and research on the ocean around the Pacific Atolls where the US military was conducting atomic bomb tests. He greatly expanded the Institute's areas of interest and among others hired Hans Suess, a noted Chemist from the University of Chicago, who was very interested in the traces of carbon in the environment from the burning of fossil fuels. Revelle tagged on to Suess studies and co-authored a paper with him in 1957. The paper raises the possibility that the carbon dioxide might be creating a greenhouse effect and causing atmospheric warming. It seems to be a plea for funding for more studies. Funding, frankly, is where Revelle's mind was most of the time.
Next Revelle hired a Geochemist named David Keeling to devise a way to measure the atmospheric content of Carbon dioxide. In 1960 Keeling published his first paper showing the increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and linking the increase to the burning of fossil fuels.
These two research papers became the bedrock of the science of global warming, even though they offered no proof that carbon dioxide was in fact a greenhouse gas. In addition they failed to explain how this trace gas, only a tiny fraction of the atmosphere, could have any significant impact on temperatures.
Now let me take you back to the1950s when this was going on. Our cities were entrapped in a pall of pollution from the crude internal combustion engines that powered cars and trucks back then and from the uncontrolled emissions from power plants and factories. Cars and factories and power plants were filling the air with all sorts of pollutants. There was a valid and serious concern about the health consequences of this pollution and a strong environmental movement was developing to demand action. Government accepted this challenge and new environmental standards were set. Scientists and engineers came to the rescue. New reformulated fuels were developed for cars, as were new high tech, computer controlled engines and catalytic converters. By the mid seventies cars were no longer big time polluters, emitting only some carbon dioxide and water vapor from their tail pipes. Likewise, new fuel processing and smoke stack scrubbers were added to industrial and power plants and their emissions were greatly reduced, as well.
But an environmental movement had been established and its funding and very existence depended on having a continuing crisis issue. So the research papers from Scripps came at just the right moment. And, with them came the birth of an issue; man-made global warming from the carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels.
Revelle and Keeling used this new alarmism to keep their funding growing. Other researchers with environmental motivations and a hunger for funding saw this developing and climbed aboard as well. The research grants began to flow and alarming hypothesis began to show up everywhere.
The Keeling curve showed a steady rise in CO2 in atmosphere during the period since oil and coal were discovered and used by man. As of today, carbon dioxide has increased from 215 to 385 parts per million. But, despite the increases, it is still only a trace gas in the atmosphere. While the increase is real, the percentage of the atmosphere that is CO2 remains tiny, about 41 hundredths of one percent.
Several hypothesis emerged in the 70s and 80s about how this tiny atmospheric component of CO2 might cause a significant warming. But they remained unproven. Years have passed and the scientists kept reaching out for evidence of the warming and proof of their theories. And, the money and environmental claims kept on building up.
Back in the 1960s, this global warming research came to the attention of a Canadian born United Nation's bureaucrat named Maurice Strong. He was looking for issues he could use to fulfill his dream of one-world government. Strong organized a World Earth Day event in Stockholm, Sweden in 1970. From this he developed a committee of scientists, environmentalists and political operatives from the UN to continue a series of meeting.
Strong developed the concept that the UN could demand payments from the advanced nations for the climatic damage from their burning of fossil fuels to benefit the underdeveloped nations, a sort of CO2 tax that would be the funding for his one-world government. But, he needed more scientific evidence to support his primary thesis. So Strong championed the establishment of the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. This was not a pure climate study scientific organization, as we have been led to believe. It was an organization of one-world government UN bureaucrats, environmental activists and environmentalist scientists who craved the UN funding so they could produce the science they needed to stop the burning of fossil fuels. Over the last 25 years they have been very effective. Hundreds of scientific papers, four major international meetings and reams of news stories about climatic Armageddon later, the UN IPCC has made its points to the satisfaction of most and even shared a Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore.
At the same time, that Maurice Strong was busy at the UN, things were getting a bit out of hand for the man who is now called the grandfather of global warming, Roger Revelle. He had been very politically active in the late 1950's as he worked to have the University of California locate a San Diego campus adjacent to Scripps Institute in La Jolla. He won that major war, but lost an all important battle afterward when he was passed over in the selection of the first Chancellor of the new campus.
He left Scripps finally in 1963 and moved to Harvard University to establish a Center for Population Studies. It was there that Revelle inspired one of his students to become a major global warming activist. This student would say later, "It felt like such a privilege to be able to hear about the readouts from some of those measurements in a group of no more than a dozen undergraduates. Here was this teacher presenting something not years old but fresh out of the lab, with profound implications for our future!" The student described him as "a wonderful, visionary professor" who was "one of the first people in the academic community to sound the alarm on global warming," That student was Al Gore. He thought of Dr. Revelle as his mentor and referred to him frequently, relaying his experiences as a student in his book Earth in the Balance, published in 1992.
So there it is, Roger Revelle was indeed the grandfather of global warming. His work had laid the foundation for the UN IPCC, provided the anti-fossil fuel ammunition to the environmental movement and sent Al Gore on his road to his books, his move, his Nobel Peace Prize and a hundred million dollars from the carbon credits business.
What happened next is amazing. The global warming frenzy was becoming the cause celeb of the media. After all the media is mostly liberal, loves Al Gore, loves to warn us of impending disasters and tell us "the sky is falling, the sky is falling". The politicians and the environmentalist loved it, too.
But the tide was turning with Roger Revelle. He was forced out at Harvard at 65 and returned to California and a semi retirement position at UCSD. There he had time to rethink Carbon Dioxide and the greenhouse effect. The man who had inspired Al Gore and given the UN the basic research it needed to launch its Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was having second thoughts. In 1988 he wrote two cautionary letters to members of Congress. He wrote, "My own personal belief is that we should wait another 10 or 20 years to really be convinced that the greenhouse effect is going to be important for human beings, in both positive and negative ways." He added, "…we should be careful not to arouse too much alarm until the rate and amount of warming becomes clearer."
And in 1991 Revelle teamed up with Chauncey Starr, founding director of the Electric Power Research Institute and Fred Singer, the first director of the U.S. Weather Satellite Service, to write an article for Cosmos magazine. They urged more research and begged scientists and governments not to move too fast to curb greenhouse CO2 emissions because the true impact of carbon dioxide was not at all certain and curbing the use of fossil fuels could have a huge negative impact on the economy and jobs and our standard of living. I have discussed this collaboration with Dr. Singer. He assures me that Revelle was considerably more certain than he was at the time that carbon dioxide was not a problem.
Did Roger Revelle attend the Summer enclave at the Bohemian Grove in Northern California in the Summer of 1990 while working on that article? Did he deliver a lakeside speech there to the assembled movers and shakers from Washington and Wall Street in which he apologized for sending the UN IPCC and Al Gore onto this wild goose chase about global warming? Did he say that the key scientific conjecture of his lifetime had turned out wrong? The answer to those questions is, "I think so, but I do not know it for certain". I have not managed to get it confirmed as of this moment. It's a little like Las Vegas; what is said at the Bohemian Grove stays at the Bohemian Grove. There are no transcripts or recordings and people who attend are encouraged not to talk. Yet, the topic is so important, that some people have shared with me on an informal basis.
Roger Revelle died of a heart attack three months after the Cosmos story was printed. Oh, how I wish he were still alive today. He might be able to stop this scientific silliness and end the global warming scam.Al Gore has dismissed Roger Revelle's Mea culpa as the actions of senile old man. And, the next year, while running for Vice President, he said the science behind global warming is settled and there will be no more debate, From 1992 until today, he and his cohorts have refused to debate global warming and when they are asked about we skeptics, they insult us and call us names.
So today we have the acceptance of carbon dioxide as the culprit of global warming. It is concluded that when we burn fossil fuels we are leaving a dastardly carbon footprint which we must pay Al Gore or the environmentalists to offset. Our governments on all levels are considering taxing the use of fossil fuels. The Federal Environmental Protection Agency is on the verge of naming CO2 as a pollutant and strictly regulating its use to protect our climate. The new President and the US congress are on board. Many state governments are moving on the same course.
We are already suffering from this CO2 silliness in many ways. Our energy policy has been strictly hobbled by no drilling and no new refineries for decades. We pay for the shortage this has created every time we buy gas. On top of that the whole thing about corn based ethanol costs us millions of tax dollars in subsidies. That also has driven up food prices. And, all of this is a long way from over. And, I am totally convinced there is no scientific basis for any of it.
Global Warming. It is the hoax. It is bad science. It is a high jacking of public policy. It is no joke. It is the greatest scam in history.

Oh, crap, none of that's true!
If you voted for B.O and all his Liberal morons in congress, I hope your as excited as I am about this new stimulus bill that has absolutely no stimulus in it.
Let's put their thinking to the test shall we? You and your family are $100k in debt. So naturally, in order to get out of that debt, you go on a $100k spending spree, right? Yeah, because that makes sense!
Your government just screwed you in a way that no one ever, not in history, ever screwed their people before. And your still smiling and yelling "yes we can!" This great new government you voted in cares about you sooooooo much, it hurts to watch.
They took all that pent up anger they created by getting you to hate Bush, and put it into the all encompassing spending spree because they knew you wouldn't get it. Your still grinning from his inauguration speech and trying to dry your eyes. You're just so happy that he was elected that you aren't paying attention to the worst policy move in history. Way to go America in proving, that we are the most powerful group of brain dead organisms on the planet.
Remember the Dixie Chicks? Ahead of their time in hating Bush? I hate Pelosi, Reed and Obama. So before everyone jumps on my bandwagon a year from now when inflation is 10%, unemployment is 33% and the government is in shambles, just remember that I said it here first.
For the 250,000 people who lost their jobs this week. I hope you can find work in one of the following areas that your government has given your money to. And for the other 500,000 people who will be out of work next month, I hope you find hope in spending your way out of debt. I'm sure your mortgage holder won't mind waiting until we see if your spending spree works to solve your problem.
Liberal morons. I hope you choke on all that hope.

Speaker Pelosi’s Payoffs and Pork Bill
H.R. 1, “The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009”
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) recently found that the cost of the Pelosi-Reid stimulus package now exceeds $1.1 trillion. CBO also estimated that only 7 percent of infrastructure money would make its way into the economy by the end of the year and only 38 percent would be spent by the end of the 2010 fiscal year. Senator Jeff Session’s (R-Ala.) office estimates the actual number going to tangible road and bridge construction is just a little more than 3 percent. Where is this money going to? A not exhaustive look at the 1,588 page legislation, H.R. 1, “The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009” shows the bill is more payoffs and pork then stimulus.

To the Abortion Industry
Representative Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) inserted in the original bill billions of dollars for family
planning groups, including the abortion giant, Planned Parenthood. Pressure and public exposure from Congressional Republicans forced the Democrats to remove such funding from this bill. However the bill still provides billions in reforming the health care system and working towards nationalized health care – with little to no debate.

$4.19 billion open to ACORN. The Pelosi-Reid bill makes groups like ACORN eligible for a $4.19 billion pot of money for “neighborhood stabilization activities.”
Some of the biggest winners in the package are federal agencies:
$54 billion will go to federal programs that the Office of Management and Budget or the Government Accountability Office have already criticized as "ineffective" or unable to pass basic financial audits. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123310466514522309.html

Discretion is given to governors and Mayors for how to spend a large chunk of the money. The U.S. Conference of Mayors recently sent Congress a $96.6 billion wish list of "shovel-ready" projects which now could be funded by the stimulus. These projects include: “$1 million for annual sewer rehabilitation in Casper, WY; $6.1 million for corporate hangars, parking lots, and a business apron at the Fayetteville, AR airport; 28 projects with the term "stadium" in them; and 117 projects mentioning landscaping and/or beautification efforts. The taxpayers should be most teed off at the 20 golf courses included
This government cares so much about you that they are going to spend 12% of the $825 billion to help you in this economy. Wow, that's love. (I've never seen a more compassionate government) But first, they are going to fund everything on their agenda regardless of how it helps the economy. (Like I have said time and time again, government can't create jobs! Rich people who own businesses do, you morons)
Wake up! Our government is corrupt, abusive, out of control and lacks the simple ability to use common sense. Anyone who voted for B.O. or anyone who voted for this bill should be ashamed. They lied to your face, and you still believed. They kicked your needs to the curb the first chance they got and you still want to talk about hope. They have disregarded your voice, and went ahead with whatever they wanted without any consequences because your too stupid to know you got bent over! Get used to grabbing your ankles America.
Congratulations. Your "audacity to hope," just got you 12%, when we need 112% from our government. There's some change you can believe in. (Get it? 12 cents of every dollar is change.)
Oh, by the way, Republicans unanimously along with 11 democrats voted against the bill. It's about time they started opposing this madness.
From the WSJ:
A 40-Year Wish List
You won't believe what's in that stimulus bill.
"Never let a serious crisis go to waste. What I mean by that is it's an opportunity to do things you couldn't do before."
So said White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel in November, and Democrats in Congress are certainly taking his advice to heart. The 647-page, $825 billion House legislation is being sold as an economic "stimulus," but now that Democrats have finally released the details we understand Rahm's point much better. This is a political wonder that manages to spend money on just about every pent-up Democratic proposal of the last 40 years. AP
We've looked it over, and even we can't quite believe it. There's $1 billion for Amtrak, the federal railroad that hasn't turned a profit in 40 years; $2 billion for child-care subsidies; $50 million for that great engine of job creation, the National Endowment for the Arts; $400 million for global-warming research and another $2.4 billion for carbon-capture demonstration projects. There's even $650 million on top of the billions already doled out to pay for digital TV conversion coupons.
In selling the plan, President Obama has said this bill will make "dramatic investments to revive our flagging economy." Well, you be the judge. Some $30 billion, or less than 5% of the spending in the bill, is for fixing bridges or other highway projects. There's another $40 billion for broadband and electric grid development, airports and clean water projects that are arguably worthwhile priorities.
Add the roughly $20 billion for business tax cuts, and by our estimate only $90 billion out of $825 billion, or about 12 cents of every $1, is for something that can plausibly be considered a growth stimulus. And even many of these projects aren't likely to help the economy immediately. As Peter Orszag, the President's new budget director, told Congress a year ago, "even those [public works] that are 'on the shelf' generally cannot be undertaken quickly enough to provide timely stimulus to the economy."
Most of the rest of this project spending will go to such things as renewable energy funding ($8 billion) or mass transit ($6 billion) that have a low or negative return on investment. Most urban transit systems are so badly managed that their fares cover less than half of their costs. However, the people who operate these systems belong to public-employee unions that are campaign contributors to . . . guess which party?
Here's another lu-lu: Congress wants to spend $600 million more for the federal government to buy new cars. Uncle Sam already spends $3 billion a year on its fleet of 600,000 vehicles. Congress also wants to spend $7 billion for modernizing federal buildings and facilities. The Smithsonian is targeted to receive $150 million; we love the Smithsonian, too, but this is a job creator?
Another "stimulus" secret is that some $252 billion is for income-transfer payments -- that is, not investments that arguably help everyone, but cash or benefits to individuals for doing nothing at all. There's $81 billion for Medicaid, $36 billion for expanded unemployment benefits, $20 billion for food stamps, and $83 billion for the earned income credit for people who don't pay income tax. While some of that may be justified to help poorer Americans ride out the recession, they aren't job creators.As for the promise of accountability, some $54 billion will go to federal programs that the Office of Management and Budget or the Government Accountability Office have already criticized as "ineffective" or unable to pass basic financial audits. These include the Economic Development Administration, the Small Business Administration, the 10 federal job training programs, and many more.
Oh, and don't forget education, which would get $66 billion more. That's more than the entire Education Department spent a mere 10 years ago and is on top of the doubling under President Bush. Some $6 billion of this will subsidize university building projects. If you think the intention here is to help kids learn, the House declares on page 257 that "No recipient . . . shall use such funds to provide financial assistance to students to attend private elementary or secondary schools." Horrors: Some money might go to nonunion teachers.
The larger fiscal issue here is whether this spending bonanza will become part of the annual "budget baseline" that Congress uses as the new floor when calculating how much to increase spending the following year, and into the future. Democrats insist that it will not. But it's hard -- no, impossible -- to believe that Congress will cut spending next year on any of these programs from their new, higher levels. The likelihood is that this allegedly emergency spending will become a permanent addition to federal outlays -- increasing pressure for tax increases in the bargain. Any Blue Dog Democrat who votes for this ought to turn in his "deficit hawk" credentials.
This is supposed to be a new era of bipartisanship, but this bill was written based on the wish list of every living -- or dead -- Democratic interest group. As Speaker Nancy Pelosi put it, "We won the election. We wrote the bill." So they did. Republicans should let them take all of the credit.
