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.

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.)

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.
