A Liberal Education

Kula Kumu, it means teachers school.  There’s a new movie coming out called “Waiting for Superman“.  It involves and outlines what is wrong with the Education System in America.  Why are schools failing our children?  Are bad teachers being kept in the system, because they are protected.  And if you are a good teacher, why are you not recognized for your success?

Nothing against teachers as a whole organization, but you must admit, you people have a problem.  Your Unions are destroying your future and your children’s future.  Your neighbors children, your relatives children, are all at risk of not having the skills to enter the world.  The skills to make them successful.  The knowledge to innovate, communicate, and to provide.

For anyone, that has children in the school system, please watch this, and learn.

BG – John Nolte

Again, this is not against Teacher, but the Unions that keep Bad Teachers in the system.  The Unions are destroying your credibility to be Professional Educators.  Your education, in your field of expertise, is being challenged.   Your dedication, to the success of your career, is being chiseled away.  You pay into a system that has you locked into future  of entitlement.  No self reliance.

No Relevance either.  Vouchers, Home Schooling, and Private Learning Institutions are cleaning your chalk board.  Your Unions are sucking at your wallet and what are you getting for it?  The promise of a pension and health care for life?  Are you  looking at the funnel?  The funnel of dwindling support?

A Good Idea, To Look Home

Defying the Laws of Political Gravity

The election of Tea Party Unknowns is extremely interesting.  Alas, Refreshing.  Long Overdue.  Leaderless, and Spontaneous.  A mass of “We The People” has risen.  We see the erosion of American Exceptionalism.  We see the future of out of control government spending, as would anyone that lives within a budget could see.  We see the forces within government that would print money recklessly, and throw it at causes that make no sense.  If by sense, political cronyism.  Greasing the palms of the Public Unions.

AFL-CIO Boss on Obamacare:

‘We Drove it Down the Republican’s Throat’

Actually, you drove it down the American People’s Throat.  Everybody in America will be strapped with the debt of paying for everyone else’s health care, like it or not.  Except for the Unions.

The union carve-out is perhaps the most egregious example of special-interest pandering, but doubtless other side deals are being cut as well.

The Face of the Union Mafia

Kneecapping America.  That’s the Union Way.  That’s the Union Label.

Proud of yourself, are you?


The attempt to define the Tea Party, and to identify the leader of the Tea Party, is a puzzle for political pundits on both sides.  The Tea Party goes against the rules of the establishment.  We are told by the Republican Gurus that certain candidates are “Unelectable”, “Kookie”, and will lose.  We are told to “Hold your Nose and Vote for the Republican In Name Only“, because they, The RINO, has a better chance on winning the elections, than the unknown candidate.  Karl Rove and Charles Krauthammer, could not be more WRONG!

I’d rather lose by fighting to win, rather than being told who to vote for.  Opinions are like anuses, everybody’s got one.  So now, instead of flatulenting in the wind, and supporting a pretension, empty and inflated, hand picked by the intellectuals, candidates that would not, does not, support our values.  We’re going off the reservation and making our own decisions.  And we will defend our choice, to the bitter end.

Even the deliberate and open Racism of the NAACP, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, would charge the N-Word of Racism against the Tea Party.  See for yourself the face of the Tea Party, or at least, Freedom loving people.

Tea Party critics, on both sides, don’t seem to get what’s happening in America during this election cycle.  It’s a wave never seen before in American Politics.  History is playing out before our eyes, and it’s important that History is written, accurately, and Remembered!

Where else in political history has a person like Sarah Palin, endorsed so many Tea Party Candidates, and WON!

Tax Cuts

The Obama case for raising taxes on the rich, is an attack against the American economy.  All sectors of the economy will be effected by this effort by Obama to punish success.  However, where Unions are involved, the Obama deems them “Too Big To Fail”.  Take the automotive industry, the General Motors bailout.  The people that benefited from that colossal act of stupidity were the Unions.  The people that were screwed by the Obama, were the stock holders.  So, if you had General Motors in your 401K, your IRA, and a individual stock holder, you lost money.  The Obama stole it from you.  Unions are in lock step with the Obama and they want your money.  Particularly, Public Unions are some of the most greediest of all Unions.

The Obama and Democrats argument is that the Rich don’t pay their fair share of taxes.  However, looking at the Congressional Budget Office data on entire incomes Americans that pay taxes including Federal, Social, and Corporate; the picture begins to open to tax reality.

The main findings: The overall effective federal tax rate (the ratio of federal taxes to household income) was 20.7 percent in 2006, with the highest quintile of American households paying 25.8 percent of their income in federal taxes.

Because higher-income groups earn a disproportionate share of pretax income and because tax rates rise with income, higher-income groups also pay a disproportionate share of federal taxes. In 2006, the top quintile of households earned 55.7 percent of pretax income and paid 69.3 percent of federal taxes, while the top 1 percent of households earned 18.8 percent of income and paid 28.3 percent of taxes.

Several times in United States History there have been efforts to lower taxes on All Americans, Personal and Corporate, while reducing Government Spending.  The result has been spectacular economic growth for both personal income and corporate income, and increased tax revenues to the government.  The opposite was true when taxes were raised: reducing job growth, personal income, reduced personal and corporate spending, resulting in declining tax revenues.

So when Obama brings in his Economic Czars, those in Academia that have never held a job, never started a business, never ran a corporation, school us on how the economy works, disaster soon follows.  The Tenure of Academia is insulated from the real world of business.  It operates on Economic Theory, not Economic Reality.

Back To School

This is Obama’s problem, he is also from Academia.  He has surrounded himself with Academia advisers, Czars, all from the school of theory, but with no real world application.  Not one of Obama’s advisers are real business owners, not one are experienced in how business works.  Instead, the Obama would treat business, success, and profit, as evil.  Along with the current crop of Socialist Marxist Democrats in Congress that tag along with Obama’s plan to change the Capitalist economic model that has served this country well since its inception, into a form of a European economic model.  One only has to ask, hows that working out for Greece?

Obama claims that  these are not new ideas, and they are not.  They are proven ideas that have worked.  Time and time again.  It worked under Calvin Coolidge, Ronald Reagen, and George Bush.  In fact, fiscal responsibility of lower taxes, less government and less regulation, brought times of great prosperity.  But the Obama doesn’t get that.

Obama would encourage Class Warfare.  The Obama, who has never held a Job in the private sector, an academia in theory, but never in practice, will never learn, reality.  Obama’s out going economic adviser Christina Romer claims we didn’t spend and tax enough.

Clueless In Academia

Obama’s solution is to throw more taxpayer money at the problem.

Eventually, you run out of Taxpayer money.

Then what?

Obama would advocate more stimulus money, but not tax relief.  Reduce government spending?  Not in Obama’s vocabulary.  Obama talks about fiscal responsibility, but Obama doesn’t have a clue how the economy works.  There is theory, and there is practice, Obama has no Czars with practical experience.  Arrogance and Ignorance is Obama’s knowledge base.  Know it all’s, that couldn’t find their way out of a paper bag.

If anyone ever takes a course in economics 101 in Bezerkley, CA, make sure to steer away from Christina Romer’s classroom.  How can Romer claim to be a Professor of Economics, when she dosen’t have a clue how the economy works?  Cash for Clunkers, there’s a bit of genius for ya!

Elect Ramsay Wharton: Hawai’i Congressional District 2

Ramsey Puanani Wharton

2nd Congressional District


Hawai’i needs better representation in Congress.  Ramsey Wharton is the right person for the job.  Hawai’i needs an independent voice that will not follow lockstep with the Executive Branch.  Hawai’i needs a Representative that will follow the Constitution and fight for sound economic policies.   With Ramsey Wharton in the 2nd Congressional District, along with Charles Djou in the 1st District, the people of Hawai’i will have the right voices in Congress to better represent the needs of Hawai’i.

For far too long, the liberal democrats have placed Hawai’i on a dangerous economic path by supporting Obamacare, Cap and Tax, Failing Schools, and an Over-Reaching Government Regulations.  Under the current Representative of Mazie Hirono, the people of Hawai’i have been ignored.  Under Hirono mismanagement, Hawai’i finds itself in danger of rising taxes, rising food prices, rising unemployment, and rising energy costs.  Hirono has followed and voted for the Marxist-Socialist Obama administration policies without question.  The decisions Hirono has made puts the People of Hawai’i in danger of not being able to afford their own homes, to get jobs, to afford to put gas in their cars, and get adequate health care.

The lackluster achievements by both Mazie Hirono, and Neil Abercronmbie, now candidate for Hawai’i Governor, has done little to benefit the people of Hawai’i.  Even now, Hirono, wants to raise your taxes by eliminating part the Bush Tax Cuts.  She says only for the wealthy.  By wealthy, anyone making over $250,000 a year.  Many small business owners will be at economic jeopardy.  Hirono claims Obama already made tax cuts, but where are they?  What has Hirono brought to Hawai’i?  How about higher unemployment:

The Hawai’i Unemployment rate is higher now than it has ever been.  Hirono was elected Hawai’i 2nd Congressional District in 2006.  Look at where the Unemployment rate is today.  Hirono’s achievements include driving business out of Hawai’i.  Hirono nods with approval when Obama says under his plan for a Cap and Tax, energy costs will necessarily skyrocket.  Along with energy cost, unemployment will skyrocket, because employers will not be able to afford to hire.  Yet, there’s Hirono voting for higher unemployment.

Hawai’i unemployment rate is going up.  Thanks to the terrible policies of  Obama, and Hirono’s support for the destruction of the American economy.  Now, Healthcare costs in Hawai’i are going to rise.  We already have a shortage of Doctors throughout the islands.  That’s only going to get worst.  This is a ripple effect of bad government by Mazie Hirono and her liberal policies.

These wealthy people that Hirono wants to Punish with higher taxes, they create jobs.

Supporting Soft Tyranny

Mazie Hirono didn’t even have the courtesy to hold Townhall Meetings with her Constituents during the Health Care debates.  No, she voted for Obamacare, and what a mess that’s turning out to be.  She also supports Cap and Tax.  That will place more regulations on people of Hawai’i.  Hirono supports the over-reaching government regulations that will tell you what kind of car you can buy, how big your house can be, what food you can have.

What can you expect by allowing more Government Malfeasance by Mazie Hirono and her liberal counterparts?  How about rising poverty rates.

One in seven Americans is living in poverty, the highest number in the half-century that the government has kept such statistics, the Census Bureau announced Thursday.

The cost of living in Paradise is already too high.  What have Hirono and Abercrombie done to provide economic relief for the people of Hawai’i?  NOTHING!  What has Hirono done to reduce run away government spending.  NOTHING!  In fact, Hirono has voted to increase spending more of your tax dollars.  The Poverty Rate in Hawai’i has gone up, not down, under Hirono’s mis-leadership.  What kind of Representation is this?

Hawai’i deserves better.

Hawai’i needs better leadership.

Hawai’i needs sensible government.

Hawai’i – Enough is Enough

The Palin Factor

Establishment Candidates Out


Christine O’Donnell won the Delaware State primary.  Endorsed by the Tea Party, Jim DeMint, and Sarah Palin.  The reaction by the establishment within the Republican party was disgraceful.  They openly attacked O’Donnell over trivial issues, whereas, Mike Castle, the establishment candidate, voted with democrats.  Castle, an establishment Republican (RINO), also went along with other democrats to impeach George Bush.  Mike Castle is not an Moderate Republican.  He is a:

RINO – Republican In Name Only

The Tea Party movement is putting America in the Right Direction.  The Republican GOP Establishment Party, disgraced themselves by refusing to back the better candidate.  Why?

State and national Republicans have made no secret of the fact that O’Donnell’s questionable personal finances and public misstatements — she once said she carried two out of the state’s three counties in her 2008 race against Biden but she didn’t — made her close to unelectable.

Character issues?  Yeah, so?  What Politician hasn’t done the same thing?  Resume’ Embellishment?  When have you’ve heard of any Politician not embellishing their own resume’?  We have a solid conservative in O’Donnell.

Mike Castle voted for Cap and Tax.  Mike Castle voted against conservative values.  Mike Castle has character issues. So, what’s the difference?  The difference is, one that will vote with the flow, the other is one that will vote Conservative.

Only Dead Fish Go With The Flow

[Sarah Palin]

National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), has refused to back O’Donnell.  Yet, they would support Castle.  Where’s the sense in that?  This is the problem within the Republican party.  Too many establishment, entrenched, make believe conservatives, that continue to vote for unpopular and expensive legislation.

Gateway Pundit

Shame, because I will not grace my donations to the NRSC.

This reminds me of the New York 23 race when Newt Gingrich endorsed Dede Scozzafava.  It also reminds me when Gingrich scolded us on not being more moderate, else we would continue to wander in the political wilderness.  Gingrich could not be more wrong.  Forgotten Values.  Forgotten Principals.


Congratulations to Christine O’Donnell on winning the Delaware Primary!

We know you’ll make a Great Senator!

You are on your way, and we will support you!

NRSC Changes mind, decides to support O’Donnell

This should have been a No Brainer from the Beginning.
