War on Christmas Begins Again

The first salvo fired on the War on Christmas comes via a Florida school.  The colors of Christmas, Red and Green, are not allowed.  Santa has been banned.  Christmas Carols silenced.  Once again, because of political correctness.

“Are we singing ‘Come All Ye Faithful’ or ‘Frosty The Snowman’?

There’s the line between religious and cultural, if you will,”

Atheist put up billboard claiming Christmas is a myth.  Calls for closet Atheist to come out of the closet.  Say they deserved to be represented, but imposes their views on others.

Where are the Catholic Anti-Atheist Billboards?

The Spending Contagion

Debt that spreads like a disease is not limited to just our economy woes, but in Europe is seems to morph itself into an economic bubonic plague.  This threatens to spread worldwide and could lead to violence and even War.

I read this article by Roger Kimball at Pajamas Media, where a member of the European Parliament in Strasbourg gave a stirring speech regarding a tsunami of debt the European Union is either ignoring, or deliberately protecting to  preserve their superpower.  The alarms have been ringing, but is anyone listening?

My favorite quote in the article is, “In the Age of Barack ‘the sky’s the limit’ Obama“, brings into light how tied the worlds economies are inter-tangled.  While Obama tries to convince the lame duck session of Congress that the Bush tax cuts for anyone making over $250,000 should expire, and that he’s willing to consider extending the tax cuts for others making less.  By reasoning that we cannot pay for the tax cuts, Obama is following EURO rational that we can spend ourselves into prosperity.  Of course, you don’t pay for tax cuts, but don’t try to convince Barack “the economy impaler” Obama, of that little factoid.

Listen to Nigel Farage, the leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party, ask the European Parliament:

Just who the Hell do you people think you are?”

An excellent question, indeed.

United Kingdom Independence Party

Sounds like a contradiction in itself, but there it is.  In a prediction to the Union, Mr. Farage said the following:

It is “more serious than economics,” Mr. Farage argued, “because if you rob people of their identity, if you rob them of democracy, then all they are left with is nationalism and violence.

Note that North Korea is in the process of extorting aid from the West by shelling their southern neighbor, and students in France are rioting over increased tuition rates, the path to violence is already upon us.  What’s next?

We Tried To Warn You

But you didn’t listen.  When drafts of the bill started becoming available, we read them.  We became alarmed by what was in the bill.  We were told, no lied to, that the bill would reduce costs.  We were told we could keep our doctors.  We were told we could keep our insurance.  No, Pelosi said, “We have to Pass IT, to find out what’s in IT


“No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people. If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.”

Obama made that particular pledge in a speech to the American Medical Association in June 2009, but he said the same thing, with slight variations, dozens of times during the health care debate. And now, exactly eight months after he signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law, we’re seeing just how empty the president’s promise was.

Another RINO Whines About Global Warming

Groan, another RINO whines about Global Warming, and not just climate change, but Man-Made Climate Change.


Watching the raft of newly elected GOP lawmakers converge on Washington, I couldn’t help thinking about an issue I hope our party will better address. I call on my fellow Republicans to open their minds to rethinking what has largely become our party’s line: denying that climate change and global warming are occurring and that they are largely due to human activities.

And that’s the rub isn’t it.  The worlds weather patterns are being manipulated by the sentient creatures that inhabit this third rock from the Sun.  Apparently, this planet is populated with Dr. Evil’s and Minnieme’s, and our carbon shoe size is far too big for the planet survive.  Thus saith the former Republican Congressman from NY.

Former House of Representative Sherwook Boehlert (R-NY) frets over the incoming class of Republicans will not take Global Warming seriously.  In an effort to co-opt the new crop of conservative lawmakers, Boehlert asks:

Why do so many Republican senators and representatives think they are right and the world’s top scientific academies and scientists are wrong?

How about they flat out lied.  How quickly people forget about Climategate.  Those emails that were released proving that these “Top Scientists” fabricated much of the data, skewed it, and attempted to create a whole sham industry in selling and trading “carbon credits”.  It ties back to Obama’s Cap and Tax policies that would have crippled the energy industry and raised the cost of energy to astronomical levels.  It would have effected every other industry in the world by raising the cost of  food, transportation, and just about everything else.

Some people stood to make a ton of money from this scheme to defraud the public with false information.  They were going to use government regulations to force industries to pay huge taxes to “Offset their Carbon Footprint”.  At the top of this hoax was Al Gore and Rajendra Pachauri.  These two crooks formed a sham company to trade in carbon stocks.  The Chicago Carbon Exchange (CCX) was formed to strong-arm American industries into the European version of mafia shakedowns known as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Obama was apart of this scheme also.

Barack Obama was a board member of the Joyce Foundation that funded the fledgling CCX. Professor Richard Sandor, of Northwestern University had started the business with $1.1 million in grants from the Chicago-based left-wing Joyce Foundation enthusiastically endorsed by Obama. When founded in November 2000, CCX’s carbon trading market was predicted to grow anywhere between $500 billion and $10 trillion. Fortunately before its collapse Sandor was able to net $98.5 million for his 16.5% stake when CCX was sold.

The Europeans trapped themselves into this scheme by agreeing to the Kyoto Protocol.  Originally agreed to by the Clinton administration and wisely rejected by the Bush administration, this socialist law would have killed jobs in the United States.  They should have called it Carbon Fleecing.

NASA’s Earth Observing System (EOS) Aqua Satellite was launched from Vandenberg AFB, California on May 4, 2002. The primary goal of Aqua, as the name implies, is to gather information about water in the Earth’s system. Equipped with six state-of-the-art instruments, Aqua will collect data on global precipitation, evaporation, and the cycling of water.

We were warned that the seas would recede and our planet will heal once Barack the Almighty was elected President of the United States.  Since then, the only thing rising are prices, taxes, and generational theft of taxpayer monies.  Looking at the national weather map today, we see blizzard conditions in the mountain timezone and hard freeze warnings across the upper half of the country.  There’s your Global Warming for ya.

And our lawmakers are being asked to consider a Global Hoax.

How about Repealing Obamacare and reducing the debt first.

Liberals Like The Police State

More and more liberals are coming out with acceptance the Police State siege mentality of the TSA.  The  intrusive groping, prodding, and exposing the traveling public.  On Sean Hannity’s show, liberal activist and feminazi Gloria Allred admitted she likes getting TSA pat downs.

The champion of liberal nonsense continues to make excuses for intrusive searches of the traveling public.  The TSA is not making anyone safer.

But hey!  Now Whoopi Goldberg came out on the Mike Huckabee show to say she also doesn’t mind a good groping either.

In response to Huckabee saying he is not happy about a government employee going into people’s pants at the airport, Goldberg reminds him “no it’s not comfortable and it’s not the way I would like to live, but if it’s going to keep me from getting blown out of the sky, you can check anything you want.  And if you feel something you like and squeeze it, what am I going to do?”

What makes this Mediate story even more ridicules is the obligatory swipe at Governor Palin.  Blaming anonymous bloggers for Wordsmith Terrorism.  Are the TSA looking for terrorists?  How about the little boy being stripped searched by the TSA?  Regardless if the father of the child took the sweater off, or not, is not the point.

Now, why are liberals so accepting of Police State activities now?  What if George Bush was still in office?  Would the liberals be so accepting of giving up their privacy and liberties?  I think not.  Liberal celebritards might enjoy being felt-up while the rest of the traveling public just wants to get to their destination, safely and on time.

So as security lines get longer and longer, what is Homeland Security going to do?  Take a look at the security line at Chicago’s O’Hare airport.

How many people missed their flights.  How much longer will the traveling public put up with this nonsense?  How many terrorists did the TSA find going through security?  How long will it before the airlines begin to feel this intrusion hurt their bottom line?

They are not looking for terrorists, they are looking for stuff.

TSA : Travel Sexual Assault

The TSA is out of control.  It is a reactionary program of government waste that will not do anything to provide security for the traveling public.  Several stories over the weekend told of what horrors travelers had to endure just to get into the airports.  Is this really keeping us safe?

It’s Come To This

Coming Soon to an Airport Near You: Prison Style Strip Searches

Reason TV and Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government puts this in perspective, we are already there.

The Face Of Terrorism

When Muslim terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab boarded a plane bound for the United States with his underwear stuffed with explosives, he set off a series of countermeasures by the TSA to prevent a repeat incident from happening again.

Full body scan machines that can see through clothing, literally a strip search, are being installed in airports around the country and world.  The TSA is also using enhanced pat-down searches that now invade the genital areas of traveling passengers.  Apparently, the TSA is going to consider the traveling public as potential terrorists.

When Muslim terrorist Richard Reid, the Shoe Bomber, had explosives hidden in his shoes on an American Airlines flight from Paris, France bound for the United State.  This prompted the TSA to make the traveling public to remove there shoes at the TSA screening area.  He was on the plane.  Doesn’t he look suspicious?

When it was discovered that liquids were being designed by Muslim Terrorists as explosives to be mixed on transatlantic flights, and detonated once the planes reached United States airspace, the TSA quickly prohibited travelers from bringing any liquids on-board planes.

The 911 Hijackers were already in the United States when they boarded planes to commit their murderous suicide mission to kill as many American as possible.  After that tragic event, the government created the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) responsible for security in all modes of transportation.  Is it working?

The Terrorists Have WON!

The headline and picture on the Drudge Report today.  Here is a Muslim TSA screener frisking an elderly Catholic Nun.  Over the weekend, a 3 year old child was terrified when a TSA screener was conducting a security pat-down on her, video HERE.  While it is true that Muslim terrorists have used their children and the mentally disabled as bombs, but that  has not happened here in this country, yet.  It is a legitimate fear that Muslim terrorists would actually try that despicable act of sacrificing their own to kill others.

Another passenger, John Tyner, refused to be groped by TSA agents and recorded the event on his cell phone.  What is shocking is that after Tyner was escorted out of the airport, another TSA agent threatened Tyner with a  civil suit and a fine.  Listen to the TSA agent own words, and think how your rights as a traveling passenger are being destroyed by an out of control government bureaucracy.

Before he could leave, however, he was again surrounded by TSA employees who told him he couldn’t leave the security area. One, who kept insisting he was trying to help Tyner, told him that if he left he would be subject to a civil suit and a $10,000 fine.

When did the traveling public become Guilty until proven Innocent?  Another woman was handcuffed and interrogated by the TSA for refusing pat-down searches.  Click on the link and hear her story of abuse by the TSA.

The TSA chose Meg McLain for special screening. They wanted her to go through the new porno-scanners. When she opted out, TSA agents raised an enormous ruckus. When she asked some question about what they planned to do to her, they flipped out. TSA agents yelled at her, handcuffed her to a chair, ripped up her ticket, called in 12 local Miami cops and finally escorted her out of the airport. Listen to her story as she told it on radio show Free Talk Live last night.

To make matters worst, the terrorist organization known a CAIR, is advising women wearing the Hijabs to allow enhanced pat-downs only around the head and neck area, and to object to full body scans and full pat-downs for religious reasons.

Before you are patted down, you should remind the TSA officer that they are only supposed to pat down the area in question, in this scenario, your head and neck. They SHOULD NOT subject you to a full-body or partial-body pat-down.

That’s the root of the whole problem isn’t it?  These enhanced security measures are a direct result of Muslim terrorists.  However, political correctness is putting the entire traveling public in danger.  The TSA is not profiling passengers as potential terrorists, but treating everyone like potential terrorists.  Random enhanced screening will not suddenly find a passenger with explosives either in their underwear or in their shampoo bottles.  Let alone some TSA Agents with questionable judgment in performing their jobs.  Like this HERE.

Over the past 30 years, the Israeli airline El Al hasn’t had a single terrorist attack either by Muslims, or anyone one else.  This Jewish airline has been a target by Muslims terrorists dating back to 1968 and endured repeated attacks by Muslim terrorists.  El Al developed a stringent security protocol that employs profiling passengers and that strategy has kept their airline and its passengers safe for three decades.

Homeland Security could take a lesson given the backlash over enhanced security problems.  The terrorist only need to strike us once, we have to be forever on the watch.  When the underwear bomber tried and failed to detonate his junk package over Detroit, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Incompetano went on television to declare that, “The System Worked“.

If this is an example of the system working, then how would Secretary Napolitano describe the system if the underwear bomber had been successful?  Abdulmutallab had successfully boarded a plane from Nigeria and nearly caused a disaster.  The system is not working.  The system is destroying the Airline Industry, the public’s confidence in government security measures, and making travel as unpleasant as possible.

Instead of being reactive after a terrorist attack, be proactive and profile passengers

When A President Hates His Country

It’s fairly obvious, by now, to anyone reading Obama’s speech to the Indian Parliament that he dislikes the United States.  So much so that Obama takes great pride in telling the Indians not to rely on the United States.

Implicitly acknowledging the decline of American dominance, Barack Obama on Sunday said the US was no longer in a position to “meet the rest of the world economically on our terms” 

Indeed, it seems Obama is putting in place policies that will surely hurt America.  Under Obama’s direction, the FED is printing money that we don’t have.  They are calling it QE2, Quantitative Easing, which means increasing the money supply in the hopes that it will stimulate the economy.  So why are they calling it QE2?

Because QE1 failed.  That was the first stimulus.  The American Recover and Reinvestment Act, or ARRP, was meant to stimulate the economy by creating tax incentives for individuals and companies, Education, Transportation, Healthcare, Infrastructure, Government buildings, Renewable Energies, Housing, and a bunch of other projects.  There was no oversight and accountability where the money was going.

So at first you don’t succeed, try again.  Now, the FED will implement QE2 and like QE1, the stimulus, is a New Keynesian economic model in which the theory favors Monitory over Fiscal Policy.  Meaning, the Government Budget Deficits should use the money in the U.S. Treasury to cover a drop in consumer spending.

There are argument for and against this approach to spur growth in the economy.  Probably the simplest way to look at it is how consumers spend.  There are savers, and there are spenders.  There are those that live within their budgetary means, and those that live paycheck to paycheck.  If you have wondered why the Stock Market has been going up, you can attribute that to the first stimulus.  The creation of an artificial economic bubble.

It is difficult to interpret Bernanke’s defense of QE2 as anything else but an attempt to replace the recent bubble with yet another – to drive already overvalued risky assets to further overvaluation in hopes that consumers will view the “wealth” as permanent. The problem here is that unlike housing, which consumers had viewed as immune from major price declines, investors have observed two separate stock market plunges of over 50% each, within the past decade alone. While investors have obviously demonstrated an aptitude for ignoring risk over short periods of time, it is a simple fact that raising the price of a risky asset comes at the sacrifice of lower long-term returns, except when there is a proportional increase in the long-term stream cash flows that can be expected from the security.

It was announced that the recession ended in June of 2009.  That was when economist tracking the numbers determined the economy stopped falling and started rising.  The question now is, why do we need another stimulus?  If the economy is being artificially inflated with money we don’t have, then wouldn’t a more responsible position for the FED to take, would be to reduce risk and regulation?

If consumers and small businesses are to begin spending and investing again, then the FED needs to lower the risk.  The government needs to reform its spending.  The government needs to reduce regulations.  For example, in the Obama Healthcare bill, there is a provision that requires a 1099 form to be filed on any vendor, supplies, and business you pay $600.00 to in a calendar year.  That’s just one of many hidden taxes and regulations  buried into the Healthcare bill.  This causes uncertainty in the business environment.  Consumers and Business stop spending.

Additionally, there’s the Bush Tax Cuts that Obama and the Democrats are going to allow to expire.  This uncertainty will prevent employers from hiring, investing, and expanding.  Instead, small businesses are taking a wait and see before they spend capitol.  Ask yourself if you could spend your way out of debt.  After you deplete your savings, your 401K or pension, max out your credit cards, what’s next?

While the news might be good for large companies like Intel, small businesses are still struggling, says Scott Brown, chief economist at Raymond James & Associates in St. Petersburg, Fla.

“Ultimately, we need the small firms for expansion,” Mr. Brown says.

What has been driving the market higher, Brown believes, is anticipation of the Federal Reserve’s next step in monetary easing: The nation’s central bank may begin to buy long-term Treasury notes. By buying these notes, the Fed hopes to lower longer-term interest rates. It has already dropped short-term rates to almost zero.

What are the consequences should the FED’s gamble fails?  Inflation and the dollars devaluation.  Higher unemployment and lower wages.  Consumer spending slows and confidence wanes.  The key to economic productivity is to remove the crushing regulations imposed on employers by the Obama Healthcare Law.  Reducing taxes on corporate and personal incomes will generate the spending needed to increase the tax revenues the FED’s.  The Bush Tax Cuts need to become permanent.  Until the government removes the uncertainty, any gains seen now, could evaporate into another recession, or even a depression.

After denying support, then acknowledging support for Obamacare.  Putting the weight of their reputation behind the the most colossal and costliest Health Care Legislation disaster ever, the AARP showed poor concern for your best interests.

Siding with the Obama Regime, and allowing Obamacare to pass as law, we now know what Nancy Pelosi meant by Passing It, To Find OUT What’s IN IT.

In an e-mail to employees, AARP says health care premiums will increase by 8 percent to 13 percent next year because of rapidly rising medical costs.

So much for looking after your best interests.

One of the marvels of American Exceptionalism has been the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).  Formed and passed into Law in 1958 by then President  Eisenhower, the Executive Branch Agency has spawned a wealth of technological achievements.  From this government agency came such inventions as the hand held calculator, to the repeated successful maned landings on the Moon.

Comet Hartley 2

The EPOXI Deep Impact spacecraft took these stunning pictures of the Comet Hartley 2 and came within 435 miles of the comet.  A remarkable achievement, that has been done before.

Thursday’s flyby is actually an encore mission for Deep Impact. It set off cosmic fireworks on July 4, 2005, when it fired a copper probe that crashed into comet Tempel 1. The high-speed collision spewed a cloud of debris into space, giving scientists their first peek of the interior. 

Impact View

EPOXI Deep Impact’s mission was to hurl an object at the comet to study the material that ejected from the comet.  That was five years ago, and here’s the spacecraft making a rendezvous with the comet again.


Among the many accomplishments besides this was the first ever spacecraft to land on an Asteroid.  Today under the Obama administration, the focus of NASA mission is to improve relations with the Muslim world.  So instead of looking towards the future, we’re now going back the 14th century.  Bravo!
