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.

All Governments Lie: Liberals just do it better

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.

Excuse me for a moment while I blow a fuse. . .

Good thing all you people voted your conscience and voted for change. Good thing that when our economy is in trouble we have good leaders that are willing to put their careers on the line and do whats right. Good thing that they don't lie and then go behind our backs and do something else. Good thing we voted the right people in right when it mattered most. Good thing that they could focus on doing just one thing without attaching so much pork that it makes me proud.

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.

From the Family Research Council:

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.

Many thanks to the website readthestimulus.org and its participating organizations.

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

Stupid Stimulus: You get what you vote for

Once again for all you addicts hopped up on Obamacrack, if you think this government is here to save you, man, you couldn't be more wrong.

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.

Why our government can't get anything done.

Chuck Grassley the ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee Launches Inquiry Into Reports Alleging Fed Computers Used to View Porn.

Two things that this explains.

First: This is the reason why nothing is getting done.

Second: It explains why although our country can split an atom, they won't use its vast power, endless resources, and undimmed intellect to restrict Internet pornography, calling it freedom of speech. (Cause they are all addicted and don't want it restricted.)

Federal government, give me another marble.

It took less than 6 days

Remember when the Liberals spent all of their time whining and complaining that President Bush lied and that was unacceptable to the American people?

It took Obama less than six days to lie to everyone.

What was his lie? Let's go back to his inauguration speech, shall we? That great eloquence of this historical man, the liberal messiah's message of hope and change. It wasn't that long ago, but for you A.D.D Liberals let's review. . .

He said, “Those of us who manage the public dollars will be held accountable. . . to spend wisely and do our business in the light of day

His point that he was going to conduct business in the light of day, right?

Then why did he give millions of dollars to fund overseas abortions behind closed doors? Why were the press not allowed to know before he did it? Why did he release a statement only after pushed?

Because they all lie. That is standard operating procedure in Washington.

Just thought I would point out to all you idiots that voted for Obama "change," He's no better than the man you used to hate.

I'd would now like a marble from all of you.

On a different note, I talked with a friend who pointed out that we've gone from a president who couldn't find two coherent words to put together, to a man who's only substance is that he can put a whole slew of coherent words together.

He also said that it was the perfect storm that led to this "historic election." The U.S. would have elected a "a Spanish speaking, midget, transvestite, with one arm and a lisp, as long as it wasn't a republican or someone that even looked a little like Bush."

(That's kinda racist. Well, I'll let you tell him. He's a 6 foot 6, 375 pound, black guy who is proud of Obama in a fashion, but is conservative too the core.)

Why our republic failed.

I’ve been thinking about this for a long time, a long time, but I have been unable to write it because I lacked the truly cynical POV needed to do it. After this last weekend I think I found it so here goes.

O.K., O.K. first a joke

What do you call a liberal who believes it is better to save a death row inmate than an unborn child?

O.K. That’s not funny. . .

How about, what do you call a liberal who bows down to the God of Darwin, but won’t even speculate on God’s. . .

O.K. that’s not funny either.

Let’s see, how about what is the difference between a liberal and a dead kitten. . .

I just can’t do this.

It’s not funny.

I turned off the news about a week ago. I didn’t watch the Today show, the nightly news, or even HLN. I just stopped. I needed a break and so did my business. I needed to just stop.

And something happened. I started living the day to day things that I have to do to stay alive. And none of them involved the government. I planted a garden, went to church, played with my kids, ate home cooked meals, wished I had played Carcassonne over the weekend, but none of it, not one thing was attached to my being a citizen of the U.S.

Then it hit me. I knew it before, but it hit me in another way I never noticed. I do not live in a democracy. Neither do you.

If you lived in a democracy, you would play an active role in government every day. You would take part in government decisions every day. It is not an opinion it is a fact. And our founding fathers knew it. They didn’t set up a democracy; they set up a Federalist Republic. They set up a government where we elected officials to go to the federal or state governments and do the work in our behalf. We choose them to go and represent us. They set us a system where we are supposed to be paying attention to our elected representatives.

God help us, what have we done?

Do you know what congress did yesterday? Me neither. Do you know what they have done over the past three years? Nope, not a clue. Did they represent you, how about me? No idea. Do you know where to go to find out what they are voting on next week? Butkis, nada, does c-span have a schedule? I am not even sure I know how to get in touch with my representatives.

I don’t live in a democracy. I didn’t vote on anything yet this year. Instead I planted a garden, played with my kids, read the entire Twilight series, worked, looked at Facebook, created a new website and slept.

I haven’t checked to see if my representatives are representing me.

So my new goal now is to find out. My new goal is to become part of the republic and make sure my voice is heard.

Right after I check my garden.

The Whole World in His Hands?

The whole world loves Obama right? Maybe we should listen to those who have been down the road befreo we start walking.

The Daily Mail (UK) wrote this editorial about Obama on 1/6/2009. (confirmation, Google "London Daily Mail Obama's Victory")

Obama's Victory--A British view

A victory for the hysterical Oprah Winfrey, the mad racist preacher Jeremiah Wright, the US mainstream media who abandoned any sense of objectivity long ago, Europeans who despise America largely because they depend on her, comics who claim to be dangerous and fearless but would not dare attack genuinely powerful special interest groups. A victory for Obama-worshippers everywhere. A victory for the cult of the cult. A man who has done little with his life but has written about his achievements as if he had found the cure for cancer in between winning a marathon and building a nuclear reactor with his teeth. Victory for style over substance, hyperbole over history, rabble-raising over reality.

A victory for Hollywood , the most dysfunctional community in the world. Victory for Streisand, Spielberg, Soros, Moore, and Sarandon. Victory for those who prefer welfare to will and interference to independence. For those who settle for group think and herd mentality rather than those who fight for individual initiative and the right to be out of step with meager political fashion.

Victory for a man who is no friend of freedom. He and his people have already stated that media has to be controlled so as to be balanced, without realizing the extraordinary irony within that statement. Like most liberal zealots, the Obama worshippers constantly speak of Fox and Limbaugh, when the vast bulk of television stations and newspapers are drastically liberal and anti-conservative. Senior Democrat Chuck Schumer said that just as pornography should be censored, so should talk radio. In other words, one of the few free and open means of popular expression may well be cornered and beaten by bullies who even in triumph cannot tolerate any criticism and opposition.

A victory for those who believe the state is better qualified to raise children than the family, for those who prefer teachers' unions to teaching and for those who are naively convinced that if the West is sufficiently weak towards its enemies, war and terror will dissolve as quickly as the tears on the face of a leftist celebrity. A victory for social democracy even after most of Europe has come to the painful conclusion that social democracy leads to mediocrity, failure, unemployment, inflation, higher taxes and economic stagnation.

A victory for intrusive lawyers, banal sentimentalists, social extremists and urban snobs.

Congratulations America!

Yep, we are so proud for this historic president, I can't stand it.

Inauguration Revelations

(For those of you who still think this has something to do with racism I refer you to my December 16th blog.)

As I watched the Liberal Messiah Tuesday at the Inauguration I was a little sickened by the idol worship the participants, attendees, and the media has for someone who, to be honest with you, hasn’t earned it. I was simply amazed at the crying and erratic posturing of a lot of the people. It scared me a little.

But the revelations that came out of the inauguration were many, and scary, to those of us who were not overcome by the sheer presence of the Liberal Messiah.

First, from Diane Feinstein:

“Future generations will mark this morning as the turning point for real and necessary change in our nation. . .” This is entirely based upon which line you draw in the sand. If you are a liberal, this day marked the moment that power shifted. If you are not, it is the moment that we lost ourselves.

Then the Liberal Messiah spoke:

On this day we come to proclaim an end of petty grievances, the false promises and worn out dogmas that for far too long have strangled our politics . . . the time has come to set aside childish things. . .”

That is rich! For those of us who sat through the petty liberal fascists attacks on everything we believe in for the last two years! Everything and I mean everything was on the table. Liberals attacked every worthwhile, conservative idea with reckless abandon. They played dirtier than ANY republican in history, and NOW they want to proclaim an end? Nice. All I can say to that is %$#&^%% you stupid *&&^%$%^! You declared war, fought dirty and won, and now you want to put it all behind you? Good luck.

Then my favorite moment of the Liberal Messiah’s indoctrination speech:

“The question is not if the government is too big or too small, but if it is working. . . Where the answer is “no” those programs will end.”

Really? Good let’s start with CONGRESS! What exactly have they done for the PEOPLE in the last four years? How about Welfare? Every state in the union last year has study that said that no one, not one state had a program that worked with the federal system. How about the U.S. Political campaign system and how the money works. How about Fannie May and Freddie Mac? How about the freggin NEA, that has never worked. How about the Liberal fascist program called the National Association of Science? How about Social Security? Not one of these programs will change under his worshipfulness’ regime. Not one of these will be put on the chopping block and none of these systems will end. He’s not unequivocally ready to make government work, he’s just posturing to do away with those portions he doesn’t agree with. There isn’t one government program that I can claim that works at all. So maybe it’s time to do away with the whole thing.

Another brilliant, eloquent prose that means something completely different from the Liberal Messiah:

He said, after talking about the founding fathers with such slickery: “We will remake America” not restore American. Notice that this isn’t about putting us back, it is reforming us. Nice, I bet no one crying at the sight of him, noticed.

Then he said:

“Those of us who manage the public dollars will be held accountable. . . to spend wisely and do our business in the light of day”

Well dammit, someone better get on the phone and tell Pelosi and Reed because they are working to put government back behind closed doors and repeal all that the 1994 congress put in place to strip the democrats of their back room deals, their smoke screen leadership, and their morally challenged government style.

Then the grand daddy of them all. The one that made me so mad that I wanted to chuck something at the T.V. The Liberal ObamaCrack Addicts drink this up and don’t even know what it means:

“Success of our economy is based on the reach of prosperity.”

Really? So our prosperity is defined by the number of people who are prosperous with us? Kind of like when everyone makes the same wage, or get the same benefits, or share in all the risk equally? How about we redistribute all the wealth so that the reach of prosperity is “far reaching?” Let’s start with Oprah. How about she chooses 100 people, I don’t care who they are, and redistribute all her wealth equally among them and see if she feels the reach of prosperity.

Stupid people.

The laws of economics say that risk is rewarded, but few are willing to take the risk. That is why and how things get done. People are willing to only take the risk when they feel they will receive a reward that is large enough to overcome the risk. By definition, the reach of prosperity has no bearing on economics. Individuals get rich, get over it, they took the risk. When individuals get rich they do it by hiring other people, and providing jobs for others. Think about if there were no rewards for the risk of oil, we would still be sitting around our hearths playing the fiddle and wondering how the crops are going to fair this year. If there were no rewards for the risk of industrialization, you wouldn’t be reading this, there would be no computers, no cars, no A/C, no Wii, no Las Vegas, no jobs and no future. If there was no rewards for the risk in food production, you would still be eating hard tack and whatever you could forage for. Do you honestly think that any of this would happen if your reward was the same as everyone else’s? Even if you did all the work, took all the risks, and expended all your time, but the reward was the same as someone who did nothing?! Do you really think that a future energy source is going to be found, created, manufactures, sold and managed by the government? Oh, that’s right because there is so many new inventions and progress coming out of Italy, France, Russia and China. Wake up! If I am going to be punished and taxed for taking the risk and being successful, I may rethink my business plan and hover right around mediocrity so I don’t get penalized. Oh, and by the way, the jobs I would have created won’t be there to fund the jobs that fund your job. So good luck in the future as we redistribute less and less, and the government taxes us all more and more.

This shows me he doesn’t have a clue about economics, he has a clue about socialism though.

For all you Obamacrack addicts I say this.

For all the hope you feel right now, I feel the same measure of despair.

This inauguration showed me that as citizens, we have lost all semblance of what the founding fathers wanted us t0 become.

Sorry, I'm in Mourning

I thought I would comment on the inauguration today, but I can't. Tune in tomorrow for my reaction. I am in mourning.

Just kidding, I didn't have time.

The Ascent of Money

I had been working on a rather lengthy blog about how this economic crisis happened, and school all you liberals, who blamed Bush on why it happened, but it turns out, someone already did it, and it came from a rather unlikely source.


Now, I am not a real fan of PBS. Yes, I occasionally watch several shows on this “public” station, but on the whole, I think that a governmentally subsidized “not for profit” entity that allows merchandising that makes millions for the producers, but not enough to pay for the show (think about it, Sesame Street makes millions selling merchandise, but needs millions of dollars from the government to put the show on PBS). Having gotten that off my chest. . . .

The show was called “The Ascent of Money” and I think that every American over the age of ten should have to watch it. I think Congress should have to watch it weekly, if not daily and I think that you should watch it now.


Yes, I know it takes two hours. SO WHAT? You can’t take two hours to learn what you should have to be classified as an adult? I promise that if more people watch this they will make better decisions, have less debt, and work to get our country back from spendthrift liberals.

Yes, I know that at one point the narrator says that George Bush says that he wanted 5.5 million more minority home owners, but it was individual members of congress who pushed Fannie & Freddie to loan to people who couldn’t qualify. Go back and read what Bush said, the whole statement, he was talking about people increasing their standard of living and being able to afford a mortgage. It was members of congress guided by groups like ACORN that pushed to give loans to people without jobs, people who couldn’t afford the payments, and people who would ultimately default on their loans.

Pay close attention to the last hour, and think about what this new government of ours is doing and what it is promising to do. It should scare the &^%$# out of you.

Fellow Americans

As an American, I am endlessly tired of the asylum in the Washington DC Beltway screwing up our country. Whether Democrat or Republican, Conservative or Liberal, our elected officials are so drunk with power, so void of consciousness and so devout in their narcissism, that it is clear to everyone but themselves that they have brought us to the edge of implosion on the scale of the Roman, Greek, Egyptian and British Empires.

Our Government was built on the fact that if it no longer worked, if it got too big, or unjust, or just plain too silly, we should rise up take back control and overthrow the government. I fear we are reaching this stage much too fast.

But, I have not given up hope. I have but one life to give to my country, so I thought I might as well ask what I can do for my country. For this reason I am forming an exploratory committee to explore my options of running for President of the United States.

So here is my foreign/ domestic policy platform:

1) "The US will apologize to the world for our "interference" in their affairs, past & present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those "good 'ole' boys", we will never "interfere" again.
2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany , South Korea , the Middle East , and the Philippines . They don't want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No one allowed sneaking through holes in the fence.
3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave. We'll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of whom or where they are. They're illegal!!! France will welcome them.
4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 days unless given a special permit!!!! No one from a terrorist nation will be allowed in. If you don't like it there, change it yourself and don't hide here. Asylum would never be available to anyone. We don't need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.
5) No foreign "students" over age 21. The older ones are the bombers. If they don't attend classes, they get a "D" and it's back home baby.
6) The US will make a strong effort to become self-sufficient energy wise. This will include developing nonpolluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou will have to cope for a while
7) Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don't like it, we go someplace else. They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling up the storage sites would be enough.)
8) If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not "interfere." They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides most of what we give them is stolen or given to the army. The people who need it most get very little, if anything.
9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island someplace. We don't need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, the building would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.
10) All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no one can call us "Ugly Americans" any longer. The Language we speak is ENGLISH.. learn it...or LEAVE.
11) "The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses." She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'you want a piece of me?'
A special thanks to Robin Williams for outlining my Foreign / domestic policy so perfectly. I will strongly consider him for Secretary of State or Vice President.

View of Abortion: (cause they say you can't get elected without a position, like that’s the guiding star we should all choose for electing our government) I believe in a woman’s right to choose, because it is the law. I believe that if a woman is raped, or her health is in danger that she should have a choice. I also believe that only the Supreme Court interprets that law. However, I believe in something more basic. I believe that for most women, the right to choose took place BEFORE she got pregnant, in a bedroom, the back seat of a car, at prom, when she was drunk at a bar, or just because she didn’t want to say no. I believe that is when she made the choice and was free to do so. I believe that abortion absolves a woman of her first choice and should be applied universally. If abortion is the law, and freedom to choose the outcome of our decisions is upheld, then that must be applied universally to all who “make a choice” but are unwilling to live with the result. Therefore, it should be illegal for children who smoke to get lung cancer, because they should have the right to choose. Golfers, who slice the ball into the water, should not incur a penalty stroke for the hazard, nor the penalty of a drop, because they should have the right choose. Obese people should not have to endure the health problems of being overweight due to over eating. They should also have the right to choose what they want to eat, without consequences. In short, under this reasoning, anyone who does not like the outcome should be allowed to choose if they are willing to accept or reject that outcome.

View of Personal responsibility:
Hand in hand on my stance of abortion is my position on personal responsibility. I believe that everyone should be held responsible for everything. All of us, responsible for everything. It is all our fault. Except in the cases of men who get women to the state in the above paragraph, they too should have the right to choose the outcome of their actions.

View of Tort Reform:
If we are all responsible for everything, then there is no reason for tort laws in our country. This will rid the U.S. of more than half of all lawyers in the US, freeing up the courts to decide important things like religion in our schools.

Employment Policy:
After we release half the lawyers and secure our boarders, the lawyers will step in and take the jobs left over by migrant workers. It is about time that they earned an honest living.

View of Religion in our Schools:
I believe that there should be no religion in our schools, none. No religious works, no faith, no prayer and absolutely no Mel Gibson’s Passions, or Passions of any sort. This therefore, would include Al Gore’s passion for fighting global warming, Nancy Pelosi’s passion for bringing down George Bush, George Bush’s passion for beating terrorists and CNN’s or FOX's passion for news. Neither will Bobby’s passions for Suzy be allowed either!

My Energy Policy:
Drill in Alaska. Find out how much is there and how long it will last. Divide that number by three. That is the time we absolutely, positively, without exception must have alternative fuels in place or we dissolve our government. If the people in the capital can’t create energy by then, they shouldn’t be in power. (did you get the word play there? Energy, power? O.K. here's a marble.

My Education Policy:
There should be a voluntary 25% contribution from all professional athletes, successful movie stars, music stars, corporate CEO’s, real estate moguls or anyone who make more than 10 times the national median income. The 25% contribution is not negotiable, and without loopholes. They should want to give back to their schools and communities. This money will go directly into a fund and divided by all teachers equally. They can live off 75% of what they are making, the rest of us do it everyday.

All schools should be privatized. We’ve now done it that way for 50 years without success, let’s try it the other way for 50 years and then compare.

My drug Policy:
Take North Dakota, (no one is living in most of it anyway,) and build a big electric fence around the perimeter and post guards every hundred yards with orders to shoot anyone trying to escape. On a user's or dealer's third offence, transfer them to North Dakota Treatment Facility. If they really want help, they will flee to the Canadian boarder for health care. The walk alone should dry them out.

Legalization of Marijuana:
No. I’m not stupid. All you pot heads can’t remember when to vote anyway. Want some cookies?

Boarder Policy:
Read statement given by Secretary of State Robin Williams, nothing goes in and nothing comes out. Unless we know about it and can track it.

Foreign trade Policy:
Trade equally. Period. If lets say China has a surplus of $100 million, they could buy 3,500 Chevy’s. If Japan has a $500 million dollar surplus, they could buy 5 billion shares of Enron. You get the picture.

Gun Control:
Criminals should not have guns. Therefore we should trade food stamps, rent assistance, housing subsidies and child care for guns and ammunition. Set up the operations right in the pawn shops or check cashing stores in those neighborhoods, they are not hard to find. No I am not implying that all criminals are poor, but let’s be serious here, more crime is committed in neighborhoods with higher concentrations of check cashing and pawns shops than in others. It will just make it easier.
"NO, a knife will only get you three days of food. Go over to your hommies crib, get his AK47 and bring it to me, then we'll talk about a months worth."

Political Correctness Policy:
People tell me daily that I have to be tolerant of others who beliefs are not mine. They say I have to accept sexual orientations, different religions, and people’s actions I don’t agree with. They say that there can be no lines drawn, no demarcation of any kind between right and wrong, even if there are state laws against it. All must be accepted. How stupid is that? Under those terms bestiality, child pornography and human sacrifice are all O.K. Oh, wait, you say there is a line? You believe that it is before those things? What makes you so smart as to know where to draw that line for me. Thanks, but I will draw that line where I see fit and so should every father and mother in this country. I will choose when to call a duck a duck.

Immigration Policy:
At the boarder, each person entering the US will have a GPS monitor implanted. We will then know EXACTLY where they are at all times. What human rights violations? They still have a choice, but if they want to be in the U.S. they got to get implanted. That’s how we know where all the movie stars are, simply follow the implants!

Farm Policy:
Grow food, lots of food, all kinds of food. After we close our boarders we are going to need it. Because we need it, we will get better at it and use the ground more wisely.

Term limit policy:
Member of congress can only serve for four terms, Senators for two, Presidents for one. We’ve seen what long term politicians can do to our country. Completely new blood with every new generation.

Line Item Policy
I will line item veto every single add on to every single bill that crosses my desk. If you want some money to build a geese museum in your state, go ask everyone in your state for a dollar! I will not tolerate pork barrel spending in any shape or form. If you want something be strait up about it and ask your constituents for the money. If they don’t have it you probably don’t need it.

Media Policy
I pledge to shut down every 24 hour news outlet in the country. It won’t matter; they are making half this stuff up anyway! You try filling 24 hours of news programming without sensationalism, 4 hours of talking heads, entertainment gossip, and catering to your base with half truths and unsubstantiated information. It’s hard.

Channels should be limited to 4 hours a day. That’s it, and then we can all bet back to work instead of watching the news.

Health Care policy:
Honestly, I haven’t got a clue. It is so screwed up now; it is like trying to chuck a frog to the moon. As soon as I am elected I will have the cast of Grey's Anatomy and ER look into it. I will also include Fifty Cent and a couple of other rappers on the committee just to keep them honest.

Vacation Policy:
I want a royal Caribbean cruise ship parked in the Potomac. That way I can stay close, but be far, far away. Oh, everyone else gets three weeks minimum.

Stupidity Policy:
I heard a comedian say once, you get five marbles. Each time you say something stupid, you have to give someone a marble. When you are out of marbles, you can’t say anything else the rest of the day. No. Shhh. No, not another word. You have already used all your marbles today.

You may not agree with everything in my policies, but ask yourself, do you like it more than any of the people running now?
