Maximum Pain For Political Gain

Maximum Pain for Political Gain

What is this gun Barry the Bullshitter keeps talking about? The gun he holding at the heads of Americans while socialist democrats whistle past the graveyard. The Hostage takers are Obama and the democrats!  When you hear members of congress and the media using this language, look carefully at who is holding the gun.

The shutdown is designed by Obama and the socialist democrats to maximize pain to the American public.  Some of the most ridiculous schemes to prevent people from enjoying the National Monuments are being carried out by the National Park Service at the behest of Dear Leader, Obama.  The pettiness to even attempt to shutdown parts of the Atlantic ocean is laughable and pathetic.  Obama wanted the shutdown and now he’s got the shutdown.  The responsibility lays on the regime.

 

firingSquad

You know you’re over the target when you’re getting flack!

Republicans have again resorted to the establishment circular firing squad.  Stale and moldy, go along to get along; republicans like Juan McLame and Peter King feel it’s necessary to employ a strategy of surrender, rather than fight on principle.  This notion that surrendering is a winning strategy is pure stupidity.  At least Ted Cruz has people talking.  People that should know that Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act are the same thing.  But they don’t!  And that’s why what Senator Ted Cruz did was to create a winning strategy.   It got the establishment and the socialist democrats hurling insults bombs at Se. Ted Cruz.  It got people talking!

Enter Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), who gave an impassioned 23 hour filibuster on the Senate floor.  Helped along with Senators Mike Lee (R-UT), Rand Paul (R-KY), Marco Rubio (R-FL) and others supported bringing light to the Sheeple.  People may ask what was accomplished, and I would answer, “it got you talking about obamacare, didn’t it?”

Don’t fear the shutdown.  Only 17% of the government isn’t working.  Worry about Obama hurting this nation with further spending.  The communist in chief will demand taxpayers fork over more money to waste on his green projects.  Obama made the same warnings about the sequester claiming it would harm the economy.  It didn’t!  It actually helped the economy by slowing down the spending, but it’s not enough.

 

WWII

Here’s a poke in the eye to WWII Veterans. Obama’s effort to shut down the government at the expense of Americans is lowdown and despicable.  Obama is taking advantage of the government shutdown that he caused and so dearly wanted.  The first thing Obama did was to create a much pain to the American people so that he can pass the blame to the Republicans.  Republicans were only asking for fairness to the American people.

Closing the WWII National Monument, which is an open air location that anyone can walk through is barricaded with barbwire to prevent anyone from walking through.  Dubbed, the Barrycade!

Obama feels so threatened by 90 year old WWII veterans , he has to threaten them with arrest.

OcarePhone

Obama gave Big Businesses and Congress special exemptions to his “Train Wreck” signature law, Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  Obama did that because he knew what a disaster the law was to become.  Those Big Business political campaign cash donators would have been scared off by having to implement Obamacare.  Obama couldn’t take that risk that his Socialist Democrat buddies would lose cash for votes if Big Business jumps ship on him.  However, Obama is against union strikes!

So Obama plotted to not to compromise with the American people, and the Republicans.  As the deadline to the implementation of Obamacare loomed, it was all but certain that Obama was going to get his way, and force this terrible law upon us all.  Exempting, of course, his rich corporate friends.

doubleSTD

It’s no secret that Obama has a particular hatred for the military.  That’s why he left Americans to die at the hands of Islamic Terrorists in Benghazi Libya and then lied to the world about the events.  Obama threatens Christian priests with arrest if they practice their religion.

How could any Military Service Person support a Commander in Chief that would abandoned them in a time of War?  We are at war, despite what socialist democrats and the phony President tells you that Al Qaeda is on the run.  It should be clear by the events in Africa where Islamic terrorist are thriving.

Obama ordered barricades to close off an open-air monument to WWII. It cost more money to set up the barricades, than keep the sidewalks stay open.  Today we learn they wired them shut to prevent anyone from visiting America’s Memorials. This is petty act by a narcissistic spiteful president.  A phony and cowardly president.

Notice how the democrats are becoming more uncivil with the calling?  Just pathetic behavior.  Blaming the Tea Party for the failed policies of Barack ‘the insane Obama!  The Tea Party seems to be an easy target for the socialists because Obama sic’d the IRS on them.  The media demonized the Tea Party with false libelous allegations of  violence, misogyny and racism.  However, like global warming, it never existed.  The real war is on the American people by the democrats and their dear leader.

Didn’t Obama claim that patients couldn’t be denied healthcare because of precondition’s?

Sarah Palin was brutally ridiculed by the media and politicians for pointing out the Death Panels in Obamacare.  She was right all along and now we can see the death panels in action.  Starting with Kathleen Sebelius, the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, says she doesn’t want to intervene in transplant decisions about a dying Pennsylvania girl when other children are just as sick.  There’s the first, one size fits all healthcare plan.  Everybody’s on the plan, and no one gets any care.  Obamacare is Denied Care!

Harry Reid’s (D-NV) comment regarding a child with cancer is chilling of what Obamacare will bring, Death Panels! Reid says helping children with cancer is not important.  Sebelius, the Health and Human Services vampire denied a child a new set of lungs.  These are the people that care for Americans healthcare and then exempt themselves from Obamacare? Are you kidding me?

This is how Obamacare will operate.  With walking cadavers Reid and Sebelius setting the standards of Obamacare.  The IRS will be the enforcer that will have access to your personal information.  Rife and ready for Identity Theft!

Wisconsin Wins And So Does America!

 

Wisconsin won big tonight and so did the American people.  Bloated Public Unions have pushed the envelope too far and the American taxpayers have made their voices heard.  No more!

Courtesy of the American Taxpayer

Union pension demands that were negotiated with the promise of union votes to Democrat lawmakers have been a symbiosis for years in many states.  As the unions grew in power, the more they took from the taxpayers.  As unions promised more votes, the more socialist democrats gave more concessions to the unions.  The taxpayers never had a chance to negotiate how their money was to be spent.  Property taxes went up to extraordinary rates to pay for salaries, benefits and retirement pensions of government workers.  They were not in line with the private sector.  It was extremely unfair to demand that the private sector pay for the public sector workers.

 

 

The unions were not willing to negotiate; instead they demanded more from lawmakers.   The lawmakers complied and coddled the unions for their votes. Eventually, the salaries of government workers were not in parity with private sector workers.  A government worker receiving a taxpayer salary of $81,637 and compared to a private sector worker making $67,067 was woefully unfair.  Plus the private sector worker was paying for their healthcare and paying for their retirement.  The public sector worker wasn’t paying for their benefits and their retirement; it was the taxpayers paying for their benefits and retirement.  Were any public sector workers contributing to private sector workers benefits and retirement?  Nope!

 

 

Wisconsin elected a governor that changed all that.  The unions didn’t want to pay for some of their benefits and pensions, so they went on strike.  But the unions didn’t just strike; they forced a recall of Wisconsin’s governor Scott Walker.  The unions were determined to force the taxpayers to pay for their benefits and retirement.  Retirement is for life BTW!

 

 

These are the same people that cheat at elections.  They find ballots hidden in trunks of cars.  They intimidate businesses and voters into voting for the official that will continue to spend taxpayer’s monies in their favor.  These are the same union leaders making six figure salaries at taxpayer expense.  These are the same socialist democrats that want to prevent voter ID’s at elections to they can fix the elections in their favor.  Unions and socialist democrats have perpetuated a corrupt system at taxpayer’s expense.

 

 

Then there is the socialist, Barack Hussein Obama.  The media helped elect him and they continue to protect him.  This socialist clown is exposed now.  The unions are exposed also.  The media is exposed now!!  The relationship that they shared to rob the American taxpayer is over now.  Wisconsin proved that and in November Obama will be voted out of office.   The Republic will be restored!

 

 

Andrew Breitbart said it best at CPAC 2012.  The Unity Speech he gave said it all.  The Tea Party that has driven the elections since 2010 to reclaim the House of Representatives, State and local governments won big then.  The Tea Party was declared dead by the socialist democrats, the Lame Stream Media and condemned by the leftist’s communists.  Quietly, we’ve been working the local, state and national politics.  We no longer have to hold rallies and protest marches.  We are organized and focused.  We listened to Breitbart….

WAR!

 

This is more than a win for the Wisconsin; this is a win for the American people.  This is a win for the Tea Party that was behind the scenes working to reelect Walker and other candidates that believe in American Constitutional Values!!!  In the words of Emperor Obama, “We Won!!!”

See You In November!!!!!

The Progressive Paradox

Why do progressives politicians lie and get away with it?  When a conservative politician gets caught lying all hell breaks loose in the media.  The condemnation stories and commentary by the liberal media goes on endlessly.  However, when a socialist progressive, a democrat, gets caught lying, it’s almost accepted as standard operating procedure.

Take for example, Bill Clinton’s famous “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” lie.  It was later revealed that he did have sexual relations in the oval office with Monica Lewinsky.  Of course, Clinton was later impeached, but that was just a slap on the wrist for the playboy of politics.  With a lengthy history of sexual improprieties and creepiness, there are still liberal women that gush over him like some kind of rock star.

 

 

 

Remember Barney Frank who boldly stated there was nothing wrong with the housing market just before it collapsed.  The same Barney Franks that didn’t know his same sex partner was running a drug and prostitute ring from his house.  It’s examples like this that neither gets investigated nor are they prosecuted.  Gross incompetence, immorality and criminal behavior seems to be an accepted practice within the progressive paradox.

 

 

 

Then there is the curious case of Elizabeth Warren who for years passed herself off a Native American Indian, Fauxcahontas.  When it was later revealed that she may have committed “academic fraud” by describing herself as a minority just so she could get special status at universities, she claimed her high cheekbones made her look like a Native Indian.

A 1997 Fordham Law Review article described Democratic Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren as Harvard Law School’s “first woman of color,” saying in footnotes that the information was based on a 1996 telephone interview with a Harvard spokesman.

So the prestigious Harvard Law School thinks a lily white woman a person of color?!  After a genealogist looked into her family history, it was revealed that her great-great-great grandfather was part of the militia that rounded up Native American Indians known as the Trail of Tears.  She has no Native American Indian in her linage at all!  She lied!  There’s a good chance she will lose the Senate election in Massachusetts to Scott Brown, but what would someone openly lie and think they wouldn’t get caught?

Makes you wonder about the value of elitist universities with a propensity to accept minority status of individuals that are not minorities.  But why should there be any special status for anyone?  Shouldn’t people be judged by their accomplishment?  Remember Derrick Bell, the father of Critical Race Theory?  Remember when a young Obama in 1991 praised the former Harvard Law professor for his thesis which is outright racism?  If you’ve ever wondered what was wrong with our education and legal system, look no further than the progressives that support racism and inequality.  Under the guise of victimhood, these radical racist communists have subverted the educational and legal system into a joke of justice.

There are dozens of stories like this, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, another socialist progressive democrat, lied about his military record by saying he served in Viet Nam, when he never served in Viet Nam.  He later halfheartedly apologized for his “exaggeration” and defiantly said, “But I will not allow anyone to take a few misplaced words and impugn my record of service to our country.”  You lied!  Blumenthal went on to win the Connecticut Senate seat.  He was rewarded, for lying.

 

 

The double standard is hardly limited to elected public officials; there are other progressives that apply this double standard to those with impeccable standards beyond reproach.  However, there are those progressives in their lust for hatred of anything conservative will impugn good people, just because they are conservatives.  I read an article from a blog that was extremely disturbing.

I can only describe this blog as an example of seething progressive hatred towards anyone conservative, in particular of conservative woman.  In what I would classify as purely misogynistic and vile hate speech; this author weaves a hateful vitriol of people of faith.  Apparently in an effort to sell his novel of religious hate, this author compares today’s media and political conservatives as fanatical terrorist.  This is the religion of progressives; vilify people of faith as extremists.  Call them vulgar names; compare them to the religious bigotry of a history long since past.  Reading this person post is like watching Pink Floyd’s the Wall where the central character progressively goes mad dealing with his own loneliness and self-loathing envy of the world around him.  Plus he writes like a teenager scrawling dirty messages on the bathroom wall.  Simply pathetic!

These are the same progressives that make claims so outrageous, you wonder if they think that you are that gullible and stupid to believe their crap.  Progressives are so envious of conservatives that they will deliberately attack the family and children of conservatives.  We’ve all heard about Bill Maher and his attacks against Gov. Sarah Palin’s children.  We’ve heard Obama’s operatives make disparaging remarks against Mitt Romney’s wife.  We’ve listened to Nancy Pelosi, a Socialist Progressive and a Catholic; state that her faith compels her to support same-sex marriage.  I was born and raised a Catholic and I’ve never heard of this before, and indeed, there is nothing in Catholic teachings that support Pelosi’s claim.

These are progressive woman attacking conservative women.  Their sacrament is abortion.  Progressives do not value life like conservatives do.  It’s obvious in the comments they use to criticize women with infants born with birth defects.  They criticized Gov. Sarah Palin for not aborting her Down ’s syndrome baby.  They looked with disgust at large families with normal heterosexual and religious values.

It was the late Paul Harvey that said during one of his broadcast sign-offs in 1965: “If I were the Devil

If I were the Devil . . . I mean, if I were the Prince of Darkness, I would of course, want to engulf the whole earth in darkness. I would have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree, so I should set about however necessary to take over the United States. I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.”   To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”.  In the ears of the young marrieds, I would whisper that work is debasing, that cocktail parties are good for you. I would caution them not to be extreme in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to say after me: “Our Father, which art in Washington” . . .

If I were the devil, I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull an uninteresting. I’d threaten T.V. with dirtier movies and vice versa. And then, if I were the devil, I’d get organized. I’d infiltrate unions and urge more loafing and less work, because idle hands usually work for me. I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. And I’d tranquilize the rest with pills. If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine yound intellects but neglect to discipline emotions . . . let those run wild. I would designate an athiest to front for me before the highest courts in the land and I would get preachers to say “she’s right.” With flattery and promises of power, I could get the courts to rule what I construe as against God and in favor of pornography, and  thus, I would evict God from the courthouse, and then from the school house, and then from the houses of Congress and then, in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and I would deify science because that way men would become smart enough to create super weapons but not wise enough to control them.

If I were Satan, I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg, and the symbol of Christmas, a bottle. If  I were the devil, I would take from those who have and I would give to those who wanted, until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. And then, my police state would force everybody back to work. Then, I could separate families, putting children in uniform, women in coal mines, and objectors in slave camps. In other words, if I were Satan, I’d just keep on doing what he’s doing.

Paul Harvey, Good Day.

This is so true of today’s progressives.  They are exactly what Paul Harvey was warning the nation about.  He saw these progressive coming years ago.  He knew they were demonizing all the good values that made America great.  Since the maculation of Obama in 2008, he and his progressive minions have been tearing down all the pillars of the Constitution.  Socialist progressives like Obama have replaced the Constitution’s God given Rights of Life Liberty and Happiness, with Government Healthcare, Gay Marriage, and Class Envy.  It is like some crazed drug addict took over the country.

Not so far from the truth, eh?  All of the progressives in government are socialists.  Their goal is class envy, the destruction of Judeo-Christian religious institutions and the American family values.  The pendulum of liberalism has swung so far to the left that this country is on the verge of total destruction.  The Obama regime is transforming a free market capitalist based economy into a government central planning entity.  We are looking more like socialist Europe.  Our economy is on the verge of collapse.  As of today, our government has failed to pass a budget and spending remains out of control.  Conservatives have put cost cutting budgets to reform our largest spending problems, entitlements.  The Socialist controlled Senate has refused to consider any budget, by the conservatives and Obama.  In May 2012, the Senate voted 99-0 against Obama’s budget to increase spending and to raise the debt ceiling.

When conservatives introduce a budget with spending reforms, the progressives set out to attack it.  Progressives accuse conservatives of wanting Americans to breathe dirty air, drink dirty water and people with less health insurance.

Obama claims the stimulus has created jobs, but unemployment is still over 8%, and the real numbers are actually higher in certain demographics.  Obama has spent Trillions of dollars on Green Energy projects that have either gone bankrupt or moved to China.  Obama has directed the Environmental Protection Agency to impose regulations that have shut down businesses and put people out of work.

At a campaign stop in Youngstown, Ohio, today, Vice President Joe Biden lit into Republicans and their presumed presidential nominee Mitt Romney for what he described as a failure to understand the plight of the middle class.

“I resent when they talk about families like mine that I grew up in. I resent the fact that they think we’re talking about envy: it’s job envy, it’s wealthy envy; that we don’t dream,” an impassioned Biden told a crowd of manufacturing workers.
“My mother believed and my father believed that if I wanted to be president of the United States, that I could be, I could be vice president! My mother and father believed that if my brother or sister wanted to be a millionaire, they could be a millionaire! My mother and father dreamed as much as any rich guy dreams!
“They don’t get us! They don’t get who we are!”
he yelled before the crowd, drawing loud applause.

Biden was referring broadly to Republican criticism of the administration’s push for higher taxes on wealthier Americans and expanded investment in federal programs aimed at boosting low- to middle-income families.

What people need to understand is that under the Obama regime, the uncertain economic conditions have gotten worse over the last three and a half years.  Obama’s war on business has made companies doing more with less.  Companies are not hiring because they cannot forecast a business future in taxes and regulations.

It’s not just shutting down oil drilling and coal mining, it’s shutting down farms and lemonade stands.  It has just gotten out of control this government aggression.  So if conservatives are in favor of dirty water and dirty air and no healthcare, then what are progressives for?  Bankruptcy, joblessness and economic serfdom are what progressives want for America.

Obama is using class warfare to promote class envy.   Obama has used healthcare to divide religious freedoms.  Obama has used the sanctity of marriage to destroy the American family.  This is the transformation of America Obama promised as Hope and Change.  Apparently, being successful in America is somehow wrong.  Obama makes success sound like the rich stole it from the poor.

I don’t believe this is what Americans believe in when they voted for Hope and Change.  I don’t think most Americans understood what Obama was promising.  The news media deliberately did not vet Obama’s background and the media continues to protect Obama from his abysmal record.  There are fewer jobs and fewer opportunities.  The problem is the economy and the progressives don’t want to change the economy.  Listen to Debbie Wasserman Schultz dodging Fox News Bret Baier’s questions on student loans and the budget.  The pure dishonesty by this woman is extraordinary.

She is the Democrat Chairperson, a socialist progressive that refuses the answer a question.  She claims she knows what the American people want, but I don’t believe this is what the American people want in their government.  She claims Obama has put forth several proposal, but that’s an absolute lie.

Government spending has to be slowed, reforms have to be enacted, but the progressives are going to drag the budget process to the end of the year.  That will trigger massive tax increases and will destroy any economic recovery, such as it has been.  The government doesn’t create jobs, but the government does eliminate jobs through over-regulations and needless restrictions.  Higher taxes will force companies to lay off people.  Consumer spending will slow as goods and services increase in cost.

The American people needs to answer a simple question; do we want another four more years of failed economic policies, job crushing regulations and higher taxes?  Do we want a government spending its way into bankruptcy?  Do we want a central planning socialist government?  Do we want some government bureaucrat deciding our healthcare?  Do we want the government to force us to purchase health insurance, or pay a fine?  Do we want see the decline of America?

Misrepresentation

Misrepresentation

 

My Congressional misrepresentative Crazy Mazie Hirono (D-HI) sent out a newsletter proudly proclaiming that she’s against the people of Hawai’i in the Second District where I live.  In her newsletter she states that she voted against the Ryan budget because she claims it will harm the priorities of communities and the people of Hawai’i.  That’s a flat out lie!

Hirono outlines 10 points where she misrepresents the Ryan budget with Socialist Democrat talking points.  Each point is a complete distortion of the Ryan budget.  Hirono would rather keep with the failed policies of the Obama regime.

Let’s take a look at her poorly defined excuses for not voting for a stronger Hawai’i:

1)      Ends Medicare as we know it:  Medicare as we know it, is going broke.  The Ryan plan brings Medicare back into solvency.  Medicare is already in the RED and will eventually run out of money.  Hirono would rather keep propping up a system going broke.  Doctors are starting to turn away Medicare patients.  Ryan’s voucher plan would give more flexibility to the patient to choose and decide their medical needs.  Under the current plan, the patient and the doctor must follow government rules that restrict how Medicare money is spent.  In effect, keeping the government between you and your doctor.  It is well known that AARP is a stooge for Obamacare, that catastrophe of a healthcare plan soon to be declared Unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.  Social Security is going broke, the government has spent the money that was promised; there are only IOU’s left in Social Security trust.  The only thing Hirono’s budget does is keep our money in government hands to further misspend it recklessly.

2)      Repeals the Affordable Care Act: Also known as Obamacare.  And YES!  We want that Obamanation REPEALED!  It is 2,700 pages of bad law!  Why else is the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) giving waivers away!  Waivers mostly to Unions and Obama cronies.  It is well known that without the waivers, companies would have dropped their employee healthcare plans, well before the Government Insurance Exchange programs will have started in 2014.  The excuse of insurance discrimination is flat out wrong.  Obamacare will discriminate against patients and doctors through a 15 member panel of unelected, but appointed, bureaucrats.  This unelected panel, (a.k.a. Death Panels) will decide if you will get any healthcare.  They will focus on cost and not care.  This panel will judge your eligibility for healthcare by your taxable worthiness. In other words, if you not paying enough in taxes to support the system, you will receive rationed care.  Why else does Obamacare force parents to insure their children till 26 years of age?  Because the law assumes the child’s taxable worthiness will reach the level needed to prop up Obamacare.  Someone has to pay for Obamacare and the law assumes 26 years of age is that age level that reaches the workforce as a fully paying taxpayer.  Seniors and retirees, on the other hand, will receive rationed care.  Obama said it himself; “Maybe your Mother should take the Pill!”  Preventing insurance discrimination for pre-existing conditions can be made a law by itself.  Insurance is not healthcare.  Insurance is a means to healthcare and should be treated separately.  As Obamacare become more online, the costs are going up.  You won’t be able to keep your doctor.  You won’t be able to keep your insurance.  What will result, will be a two tiered healthcare system where the very rich will be able to afford health care, and everyone else will have hospital emergency rooms just to get basic healthcare.  That’s the future of Obamacare.  Is the age of consent now going to be 26 years of age?

3)      Attacks Women’s Health Care:  That’s a total lie! A manufactured scare tactic the Socialist Democrats like Hirono are using to try and scare women.  Insurance discrimination is a falsehood!  Insurance is not healthcare, but a means to acquiring it.  A simple law to prevent insurance companies from discriminating anyone, regardless of either gender, age or precondition, doesn’t need to be in a wieldy 2,700 pages of bureaucratic nonsense disguised as healthcare.  This scare tactic Hirono and her Socialist partners in crime are playing on the American people’s fears is shameful.  There is no proof that the Ryan plan discriminates against women.  That is a simply a lie, and Hirono knows it.  What Hirono wants to do is make everyone pay for abortions and contraceptive services.  There is nothing in the Ryan budget that prevents women from healthcare, that’s the bottom line.  Shame on Hirono for promoting a lie to her constituents.

4)      Eliminates Brand USA, our nation’s travel promotion arm: The question is, why do we need this program?  Wouldn’t a program like this be better administered through private enterprise?  The answer is a resounding YES!  The mission of Brand USA is to encourage international visitation to the United States.  With the debt burden that Obama has done in just 3 short years, something has to go!  The taxpayer money spent marketing the American States, cities and towns would be used at the local level.  The world already knows where and who we are.  This is just wasteful needless spending.

5)      Rolls back efforts to make college affordable: Is college affordable now?  Is college a good value today with leftist professors indoctrinating students into a Socialist model?  No!  This is another scare tactic by Hirono and her Socialist Democrat criminals.  You’ve got Occupy Wall Street (OWS) people running around with worthless degrees in such fields as Cyberfeminism” and “Taking Marx Seriously: Should Marx Be Given Another Chance?”.  These are real courses being offered in Universities that Hirono wants you to pay for through government grants.  What marketing skills do courses like this offer the soon to be 26 year old about to enter the workforce?  Ryan’s plan does not eliminate grant programs; it just streamlines it towards courses with job marketable skills.  Isn’t that a better use of taxpayer money?  Let the student pay for these whacky courses through other means other than government taxpayer grants.

6)      Slashes education programs for Hawaii’s students:  This is also another lie and scare tactic that Hirono should be ashamed of.  Currently the Department of Education (DoE) is spending more money, but getting poorer results.  Hirono would rather continue the time honored practice of throwing taxpayer monies at a failing system and hoping someday it will get better.  The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.  The Federal taxpayer monies spent on education should be a block grant to let the States run their education programs that work for the people of their state.  Hirono would continue with a central planned system that puts conditions on the states like “No Child Left Behind”, a noble plan that never worked.  Hirono would better represent the educational needs of Hawai’i’s students by working to get the largest block grant for her district.  But that means work.

7)      Cuts nearly 4.1 million jobs nationwide through 2014: This is Liberal fantasy!  This is the Socialist Model that states only the government can create jobs.  It is not the role of the government to create jobs.  Our Constitution is based on a Free Market Capitalist system, not a Socialist Central Planning model.  The Obama regime has spent billions of taxpayer dollars trying to make that work and it has failed miserably.  The Ryan plan seeks to eliminate unnecessary wasteful government programs.  Currently, the rate of government spending is unsustainable and dangerous.  It is pure fantasy to believe spending can continue at its current rate.  I believe the Ryan budget doesn’t cut enough!  I also believe Economic Policy Institute is nothing more than a mouth-piece for the Congressional Progressive Caucus to spread economic half-truths and outright misinformation.  The Economic Policy Institute makes claims, but fails to back it up with any supporting data.  Under Obama’s NO PLAN, but continuing run-away spending will eventually hurt everyone; seniors, children, poor, middle class and the rich.  Again, another Social scare tactic by Hirono.

8)      Gives millionaires and billionaires $265,000 each in addition to the $129,000 they would receive from the Bush tax cuts:  Hirono is a student of Keynesian economics and wealth redistribution.  Classic Socialism and Class Warfare! The belief that if you take money from one group of people and give it to another group.  That does not create jobs.  It does not create economic opportunity.  Hirono wants to expand government by using tax payer money to waste on government programs.  That’s unsustainable!  The Bush tax cuts gave everyone a tax cut.  Obama and Hirono wants to punish people that are wealthy and successful.  Hirono wants to tax the job creators.  Hirono wants to slow down the economy by killing small business with unnecessary taxes.  This country has the highest corporate tax rate in the world.  Hawai’i has some of the highest taxes in the nation.  Hawai’i currently tacked on a half percent to the General Excise Tax (GET) to build a train to nowhere.  How long before Honolulu’s mistake starts to affect the neighbor islands?  This nonsense of taxing and spending our way into prosperity is complete idiocy and irresponsible.

9)      Cuts transportation investments in roads, bridges, rail lines, buses, and airports: Again, spending cuts need to be done because we don’t have the money.  Obama has drained the Treasury.  We as a country are broke.  To continue to deny that is like not paying your mortgage.  Eventually you will lose your house.  It’s like not paying your credit cards, eventually the bank will come for you.  It’s like not paying off your car; eventually the repo man will repossess your car.  States should be responsible for their transportation priorities.  Instead, States with Democrat leadership have wasted transportation projects on other general fund projects.  Neil “Crusty the Clown” Abercrombie took money from the Hurricane fund for other projects.  This is the same thing that Hirono wants to do.  Barney Frank, the Congressman crook that once claimed the Housing Market was solvent and not in trouble of collapsing, did a fund raiser for Hirono.  You see, these are the people that caused the economic collapse.  It wasn’t the Bush tax cuts.  It wasn’t the eight years of the Bush presidency.  It started in 2006 when the House of Representatives was dominated by Socialist Democrats.  That’s when out of control spending started.  That’s when the housing market started to implode.  In 2008 when Obama Regime increased spending with Cash For Clunkers, the GM Bailout, the Stimulus plan and the Quantitative Easing of the economy.  All failed economic policies supported and voted for by Hirono.

10)   Protects tax breaks and boosts incentives for corporations shipping American jobs overseas:  I don’t know what incentives companies to move overseas, except for high taxes and over regulation.  Hirono and her gang of Socialist Democrats have choked businesses with high taxes and over-regulations.  Their failed economic policies to pick winners and losers have resulted in millions of job losses.  Conveniently, Hirono blames the Republicans for the Democrats failed policies.  The Democrats owned the House of Representatives for 4 years until 2010 when the Tea Party and Conservatives swept the house with Fiscal Conservatives.  There hasn’t been a budget passed since Obama came into power.  Even the Senate rejected Obama’s budget.  So for Hirono to gleefully cast her vote against fiscal sanity just shows the lack of intelligence she has understanding how the economy works.

Hirono offers no budget solution herself.  Typical Marxist Democrats that are good at making speeches but little on substance and follow through.  At least Ryan has a budget with substantial fiscal sanity.  Sooner or later, this nation needs to come to grips with our fiscal house.  If not, we will surely end in worse condition.  Hirono can hide her head in the sand all she wants, but standing on the sidelines and making unhelpful comments doesn’t demonstrate good government.  It does show a small petty woman with an ego of empty vanity.

 

 

House Budget Commitee Chairman Paul Ryan corrected Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s incorrect speech on Medicare during House Floor debate of the Path to Prosperity Budget.

DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz: As a member of Congress representing a large number seniors in south Florida, I can tell you that the House Republican Budget would be devastating for seniors and older Americans. This Republican path to poverty would pass like a tornado through America’s nursing homes, where millions of Americans seniors receive long-term and end-of-life care.

HBC Chairman Paul Ryan: The growth rate of Medicare under this budget is the same one the President proposes in his budget. Here’s the difference: President Obama in his law — the one being debated over in the Supreme Court — says 15 unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats will be in charge of putting price controls and cuts to Medicare to accommodate that growth rate. Our plan puts 50 million seniors in charge of choosing what health care plan is best for them — more for the poor, more for the sick, less for the wealthy, and it makes Medicare solvent. 

And here’s the catch: we don’t change the benefit for current seniors. This just applies to younger people – unlike the current law that the President passed — that my friend voted for – 15 bureaucrats are in charge of putting price controls on current seniors’ medical care which leads to denied care for them. So if we’re talking about who’s “saving and strengthening Medicare” it is this budget as opposed to the status quo, which raids it, rations it and still allows the program to go bankrupt.

“This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility,”

Presumption is a scary thing.  Does Obama know something we don’t?

The Ryan Republican Budget did pass in the House today.  The Senate is scheduled to review the budget, but the Socialist Democrats that holds the majority rule under Harry Reid will most likely put the budget on hold.  This means the current rate of mismanaged spending will continue until after the election.  If Obama gets reelected, the America as we have known it will cease to exist.  Our economic future will look like Europe, in particular Greece.  That is a future which will end the republic and the beginning of a socialist model much like Russia.  If Obama is reelected, the Second Amendment will end and Obama will disarm the populace.  If Obama is reelected, free speech will be a thing of the past; any dissenting opinion will be not be tolerated.  If Obama is reelected healthcare will be rationed, jobs will be scarce, housing will be government owned and the disintegration of individual freedoms and liberties will be forever lost.

I Was Inspired

 

 

I am inspired!  Last night, I had an encounter with great wisdom.  I had recently written an opinion article for my local newspaper regarding the Rush Limbaugh faux pas.  In it I explained that this wasn’t about what Limbaugh said, but about the moral decline being promoted by the Socialist Democrats.

Last night I received a phone call from an 85 year old elderly Japanese woman, she wanted to complement me on my opinion editorial.  Her name was Arlene, and she wanted to tell me how much she enjoyed reading my article that I wrote to the Hilo Tribune-Herald.  I’ve written opinion articles to the Hilo newspaper many times before, and on occasion people have complemented me on my ramblings.  However, this was the first time I had an hour plus long conversation with someone so passionate about losing a voice on the airwaves.

Arlene was disappointed by the decision by our local radio station KPUA to pull the Rush Limbaugh show from their programming schedule.  Having the dubious recognition of being the only radio station in the nation to do so, KPUA’s President Chris Leonard was obviously pleased with himself.  By punishing the listeners of his radio station, he must have felt he was making a bold statement for righteousness, or something.

Chris Leonard: Click on the pic to read the full story

“Apparently, we were the first in the country to cancel and it has generated a fair amount of national attention, which was certainly not our intent, and we have received a ton of feedback on both sides of the issue over the past several hours,” he noted. “We’ve heard a lot from Rush listeners who are disappointed in our decision and we’ve also heard from a lot of people who are very happy about the decision.”

 

Arlene was angry that KPUA canceled the Rush Limbaugh show, and she told me that she called the station to express her anger.  She told me she did not know what she was going to do without her daily listening of “Excellence In Broadcasting!”  She went on to explain that she agreed with Rush; that Sandra Fluke is a “slut”!  Anyone that would publicly shame themselves before “Pelosi’s Gang” is deserving of such rebuke.  I agreed that the larger point was not lost in the fluff of leftist manufactured outrage.

 

When Conservative women are disparaged by the left, not a word is heard by the elitist media.  Why does the media turn a blind eye at the conduct by so called late night comedians, leftist cable news anchors and leftist radio talk show morons that regularly disparage women?  In particular conservative women?

Media Mashup

Letterman’s top ten countdown – number 2, he makes a remark about Sarah Palin.

 

This is, apparently, acceptable behavior to the National Organization of Women (NOW).  Notice that they didn’t say a word about any vulgar remarks about conservative women.  That’s because in their feeble little hateful minds, this is acceptable in today’s society.  Allow some women to be discriminated against and then only defend those that fit their political views.  This is also because the National Organization of Women is at war with itself.  How else can you explain the content of their website.  They are promoting an appearance that women are all discriminated against.  This is patently not true!  Discrimination is not the exclusive domain of women.  People like me were not raised that way.  People like Arlene are not like that either.

Gloria Steinem, Jane Fonda and others have expressed outrage over Rush Limbaugh’s comments and demand the FCC ban the show.  Considering the brain trust of these two, I would have thought their greatest collective concern would be either spit or swallow.  The moral outrage over a talk show host is lost in hypocritical hyperbole of “do as I say, and not as I do”!  Arlene and I spoke of this double standard and how it has poisoned the discourse in today’s society.  After all, it was Gloria Steinem that once said about housewives:

“[Housewives] are dependent creatures who are still children…parasites.” ~ Gloria Steinem, “What It Would Be Like If Women Win,” Time, August 31, 1970.

I was having an enjoyable conservation over the phone with a wonderful grandmother, a widower and a very intelligent woman.  A bold and passionate woman that was not afraid to speak her mind.  A woman with a voice, and not afraid to use it either!  A woman with health problems, for her age, but she was not afraid to pick up the phone and call me; to thank me for my opinion.  I was inspired and humbled!

How could anyone not want to hear a complement?  This was different.  She was praising a man she admired.  She was angry that a source of information was gone.  She was hurt by losing a friend on the radio for three hours a day.  She was emotionally distraught over a person that when they spoke, made her think, was now off the airwaves!  Much like the passing of Andrew Breitbart, I felt the same way.  She was grateful to know there were others like me out there.  Who appreciated free-thought and lived by conservative values.  I was inspired!

Arlene told me about her upbringing.  Growing up in the plantations north of Hilo town in Pēpē’ekeo.  How back in that time people didn’t conduct themselves like Sandra Fluke, out of fear of shaming their family and shaming themselves.  People had more pride in keeping with the morals they were taught.  Indeed, 85 years ago means she was born in 1927, and she lived through World War II, the Japanese interment and she has seen the changes in the world with a lifetime of experience.  Growing up on the slopes of Mauna Kea during the plantation days must have been an experience.  Back then, Hilo was just a small town and Pēpē’ekeo was just a small sugar plantation.  Arlene told me how she was raised with family values which she passed onto her children and grandchildren.  I was inspired!

Values that included pride and respect!  Values that included independence and interdependence.  Values that shared love and family.  Values that had mutual partisanship and commanding directness.  Values of respecting ones person, a temple, if I could use that phrase.  Something that seems in great deficit in today’s society.  The rational that contraception is cheaper than the full birth of a new life brought into the world is somehow a better trade off, is just frightening.  That was partially the subject of my article, but she saw it from a higher elevation and seen the larger picture.  She called me at home to tell me that.  I was inspired!

Bart Simpson explains Sandra Fluke

We agreed that if there was a War on Women; that I would surrender.  I said “willingly”.  All joking aside, my conversation with her was thrilling!  She went on to explain how she called the radio station’s phone number (KPUA), and voiced her displeasure with the stations decision to cancel the Rush Limbaugh Show!  She also told me she apologized to the station operator for her choice in language.  She did not elaborate on what she said explicitly, and neither did I inquire, but I can only imagine!

I could not imagine we are the only two people on the Big Island of Hawai’i with the same values.  I know we are not alone.  She told me because of her age and frail condition, she is no longer able to either drive, or get around without some assistance.  We talked about conservative groups here on the Big Island; The Conservative Forum and the Hilo Tea Party.  Both are a rich diverse group of people of both men and women that are like minded.  She was surprise and happy to hear that there were others out there.  Free-thinkers that often get together to discuss issues that affect our lives.

We talked about the entitlement mentality, the desire by people to depend on handouts from the government.  They call those handouts, free!  A right!    We talked about a variety of topics from family to politics.  We talked about how we make decisions and what guides our decision processes.  We talked about the Hawai’i caucus taking place today.  We talked about our candidates of choice.  We talked about the current administration, and local politics.  I was impressed by Arlene’s knowledge of current events.  If I didn’t know better, I’d say she was getting her news feeds via twitter or facebook.  I was inspired!

Getting Your Money’s Worth

Democratic Rep. John Mizuno of Oahu introduced what amounts to an asinine bill requiring Internet Service Providers (ISP) to save for two years the Domain addresses and Internet Protocol addresses of “everyone” in the State of Hawai’i.  Creating a virtual dossier on every resident in the State that uses the internet.  In other words, the government tracking everywhere you go on the Internet.

Under the guise of “privacy protection”, H.B. 2288, this unnecessary regulation could lead to gross violations of the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unreasonable search and seizures.  The bill does not contain any privacy protections to restrict what ISP providers can do with the information they gather.  They can sell the information to advertisers and the legislation doesn’t prevent law enforcement from getting a warrant before obtaining the data.  This is a clear violation of Fourth Amendment protections and privacy protections.

This isn’t the only attempt by law makers to place restrictions on the Internet.  Recent legislation in Congress to restrict freedom of speech was stopped after a huge public outcry.  The Legislation known as SOPA (Stop Online Pirating Act) was pulled after it was learned that the bill would amount to nothing more than internet censorship.  The bill was intended to stop copyright infringements and to protect Intellectual Property (IP) from being stolen, but the broadness of the legislation went beyond just protecting copyrighted material on the internet.  It went further to requiring ISP providers to monitor customer internet traffic.   Effectively spying on where ever you went on the internet.

The implications into heavy-handed government restrictions meant certain websites could be shutdown by just the suspicion, or accusation by anyone claiming internet piracy.  Just the suspicion of copyright infringement would require the ISP provider to use deep packet inspection to block web sites using IP (Internet Protocol) Blocking.  It would force the ISP providers to intercept and analyze customers’ Web traffic.  The question is, do we want the Web providers policing the internet?

That’s not to say there isn’t piracy on the internet.  Off Shore piracy by countries like China are openly stealing Intellectual Property such as Hollywood movies and Software programs.  I was in Malaysia recently and saw this first hand.  There are stores that sell copied software and movies onto CDROM’s and sold outright in large Malls and shopping centers.  When the police arrive at these stores, the pirate vendors, simply move the racks of pirated items out of view until the police leave.  Then it’s business as usual.  Most software vendors encrypt their products with an encoded key to prevent illegal pirating.

But from a larger point of view, why should broadly worded laws be enacted that restricts those that wish to keep their Intellectual Property open and free to the public domain?  Why do we want to add a layer of bureaucracy onto the cost of already expensive internet services?  Why do we allow legislators to write lousy laws that result in restrictions in Free Speech and Free Access to the World Wide Web?

Speaking of poorly written laws, Obama signed the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) which is an international treaty agreement that permits foreign countries and companies to demand Web providers to remove Web content in the United States without legal review.  The Treaty has not been ratified by the Congress.  However, that hasn’t stopped the Marxist in Chief from stepping around Congress.  In what was a blatantly illegal move, Obama declared the Treaty an “executive agreement” and thereby bypassing Congressional approval.  This law is worse than SOPA and its partner law PIPA.  The scope and broadness would effectively stifle free speech on the web.  For example, suppose a website reported on the intolerance of certain a nations’ political or religious discrimination, it could be blocked from publishing that content.  That’s exactly what happened to “Bare Naked Islam” on blog hosting website WordPress, the host of this blog.  When the organization known as CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), an organization with ties to Islamic Terrorist groups, accused the website of spreading hate speech, WordPress then shut them down citing a violation of terms of service.  Granted this decision by WordPress to silence “Bare Naked Islam” wasn’t related to any existing legislation, but it represents a pattern of political correctness that internet providers, hosting sites and users are facing in the wake of attacks on Freedom of Speech.  The ISP providers see this coming and are preparing for the worse.

That is the real problem with rotton legislation like the one being proposed in the Hawai’I legislature. As in Hawai’i, there seems to be a lack of “Checks and Balances” with legislation written by all government entities.   This seems to be a systemic problem with all levels of government, from Congress, to State and local entities.  It’s not just either a Democrat or Republican problem.  SOPA’s data retention proposal was written and sponsored by U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas).  Rep. John Mizuno’s legislation takes data retention to a whole new level of privacy intrusion.  Besides not being well thought-out, the consequences of how such legislation would not only hurt free speech, but it would severely damage commerce on the Internet.  This is not what the Founders had in mind when they designed the Republic.

Voter apathy must end if we are ever to see an end to this creeping socialism!  The voting public needs to be more involved in the legislative process at all levels; from the PTA to Presidential elections, to electing the Dog catcher.  The public should demand greater accountability from those in our employ.  We are taxpayers, and they are elected by “us’, the taxpayers!  They are paid by “us”, the taxpayers.

We should get our money’s worth, don’tcha think?  When voters do get involved, this is what happens.  Read Here!

Obama Passes Card Check, By Fiat

NLRB to Issue Final Rule Requiring All Employers (Even Nonunion Employers) to Post
Notice of Employee Rights Under the NLRA
August 25, 2011

On August 25, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB or Board) announced that it would issue a Final Rule, to be effective on November 14, 2011, that would require all employers subject to the Board’s jurisdiction—i.e., the vast majority of employers doing business in the United States—to post a notice in the workplace informing employees of their right, among other things, to “[o]rganize a union,” “take action . . . to improve your working conditions by, among other means, raising work-related complaints directly with your employer or with a government, and seeking help from a union,” and to “strike and picket.”

 

Obama is illegally ordering “Card Check” legislation into law without it first being passed through the Congress.  Another job killing move by the Keynesian socialist that wants to change the United States into a Socialist European utopia. Obama is determined to shutdown American businesses.

Using the National Labor Relations Board (NRLB) as the enforcement arm of the Executive branch of government, Obama is giving the Unions a token to remember him in November 2012.

 

Card check is popular with the union bosses looking for increased political power and increased dues money because it’s an open process that lets organizers know who’s on board and who’s not. It’s a fertile ground for the intimidation of workers and worse—which is exactly why we have elections in this country by the sacred institution of the secret ballot. And it’s this institution that the Arizona, South Dakota, and other state constitutional amendments recently enacted seek to protect. For the unions and their allies in the Democratic Party, though, these amendments are roadblocks that must be cleared away before their overall plans can come to fruition.

The NLRB has announced lawsuits against the states of Arizona and South Dakota because they passed, by citizen initiative, constitutional amendments that require secret ballot elections to form unions.  The Obama Regime is trying to intimidate states, businesses and workers by forcing them to be a part of the Labor Unions.  You do not get a choice.  The Unions will take your money, your pay, and use it to get Obama reelected.  They’ll use it to reelect more socialist democrats.

 

Where the current administration has failed to persuade Congress to adopt its legislative agenda, time and again, it has waived its regulatory wand and enacted the failed “legislation” as “regulation.”

Magically, it becomes the law of the land.

Since the rejection of the Employee Free Choice Act, the administration, largely through the National Labor Relations Board, has brought the legislation the Congress killed back to life.  

Consider these recent regulatory initiatives of the NLRB:

Expanded use of mail and Internet balloting in union elections.

Why? Because these ballots are not cast in secret.

Union officials could monitor the voting, accomplishing the primary objective of EFCA —  a vote outside the secret ballot booth and under the watchful eye of the candidate;

This is hardly constitutional.  It is Illegal.  What the Regime is doing is removing the secret ballot so Union Bosses can see how you vote.  If you don’t vote the way the Unions want you to vote, you will be targeted for intimidation, you may lose your job, you may be demoted, you may not get a pay increase, you will be punished if you do not vote the Union Label.  Disgusting!!!

 

It will cost jobs:

The agency’s action is seismic. If successful, it would undermine economic competition among states, which helps drive the American economy. Even worse, it would induce companies to export jobs not to other states that have lower labor costs, but to other countries that do.

This action by the Obama Regime is un-American.  It is what dictatorships and communists do around the world.  It will force jobs overseas to countries with lower wages.  It will force small businesses to close.  It will put millions of workers out of jobs.  This is a deliberate effort by Obama to destroy the free-market capitalist society and turn us into Venezuela!

Every single day there is some new information on what they are doing. The media is not covering it, in fact they are covering it up. I am hoping that everyone who sees what they are doing, is willing to spend the time to pass the information on. We have a very short about of time to stop what they are doing or we will lose our country. The loss of jobs alone will lower our standard of living. The loss of  freedom will ruin our country.

Indeed, there hasn’t been any reports in the media; not ABC, NBC, CBS, not the printed media either.  The blogs are reporting it.  Fox News reported it.  None of the other Lame Stream Media outlets are reporting this atrocity of the abuse of Executive power by the Obama regime.
