"…a buzz kill for jobs.

I saw this great line on FoxNews.com, a partial quote from the CEO of Overstock .com. He was talking about the CA. sales tax on internet sales.

How appropriate a comment to describe Mr. POTUS and his current “Kill the Goose” campaign tactics. Cut “loop holes” for private corporate airplanes. George H. W. Bush damn near killed the boating industry in the US with the same philosophy and his Excise Taxes on boats, expensive cars and jewelry. So much so that a proposal was actually floated in congress to allow special tax incentives and bail-outs for boat builders.

According to yesterday’s POTUS teleprompter-led press conference, class envy and dissention are the key elements to winning elections. Guess that is why Goldman-Sachs is so excited about the future of America, they are on a hiring binge, planning to hire at least 1,000 people! (in Singapore, not the US). 

(The below quote is unedited. I have no intention of making even so-called fair-and-balanced idiots look good with spelling, grammar and other text corrections)

“Goldman is so concerned about the potential for criticism that the firm’s representatives have been alerting staffers of lawmakers in Washington of the hiring spree in recent weeks as a way to mollify any concerns they may have about previously undisclosed plans to add 1,000 jobs to the firm’s Singapore office, according to people in Washington with direct knowledge if the matter,”

“Firms like Goldman have to conform to a plethora of new and costly regulations that came as a result of the 2008 financial collapse, and the massive government bailout of the big financial firms that followed,” the article read. “Those regulations [are] found primarily in the Dodd/Frank financial reform bill.”

Way to go, POTUS

In other news, I noted in The East-African news that Kenya is paying 1.7 million annually to Chlopak Leonard Schechter and Associates (CLS), a top lobbying firm in Washington DC that also represents Google and Intuit. According to a recent report by the Congressional Research Service, Kenya is set to receive $3 billion in foreign aid between 2008 and 2011. And here I thought Lobbyists were just for Big Business. How naive!

One last buzz-kill. Harry Reid announced today that the Senate would be in session Tuesday, July 5th. Golly, I wish they would just stay home until the elections. It is almost impossible to imagine how many trillions of dollars that would save the taxpayer.

The Gold Shower Curtain

POTUS n0bama has been on my TV for over an hour, passing platitudes and prevarications to the idolizing press and the more gullible progressive socialists that still think he is the savior reincarnate.

It appears POTUS once again cannot bother himself to be patriotic. Perhaps a background with the American Flag and the Presidential Seal would be “offensive” to someone. Or, perhaps, it is harder to lie to the American Public when you are standing in front of a reminder that we have a pledge of allegiance.

I pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.

Kinda hard, really, to think of the above while you are so obviously choosing which business to steal, which one to support, which to cause to fail.

Kinda hard when you are busy paying off all the unions, the big contributors, trashing the economy via obfuscation, over regulation and over spending.

I pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.

Kinda hard when you have spent over two years running down Christianity, running down the Sovereign United States of America in front of foreign dictators and despots, trashing relationships with our valued allies, running our country so far in debt it will take generations to pay it off.

Kinda hard when you will not protect our borders. Kinda hard when you refer to chronic unemployment as “not quite shovel-ready.”

Repeat after me MR POTUS, and don’t forget that it is your RIGHT hand you hold over your heart. (You know, your military right?)

I pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.

Lest you forget, there are Primaries and General Elections coming up. Vote the Bastards (all of them) out.

The un-United States of America, divisible and without god

NBC determines you do not need to belong to One Nation, Under God, Indivisible.

In Eugene Or. city council has decided that they will no longer recite the Pledge of Allegiance as they are no longer Citizens of the United States of America. Time to send them all to Mexico, Iraq, or whatever shit hole of a place we can find them that does not believe in God or Country. I guess they just believe in Dictators. Maybe China or Venezuela or Iran would be better for them. Wait. They did say they are “Citizens of the World.” How about a small boat on the International Date Line?

We have a President who cancelled National Prayer Day in the White House as to not offend anyone. I guess that, when the F. L. went to Africa to promote education and enlightenment for women, she did not go to any Islamic countries, she doesn’t want to offend anyone either.

I saw yesterday that lawmakers were undecided as to the meaning of Tax Increase. Perhaps POTUS and FL are undecided as to meaning of “Anyone.” I know the meaning of both, but I ain’t goin’ there. Maybe tomorrow, but not today.

TSA molests children and Grandma, Texas gets even. The Texas House on Monday gave preliminary approval to legislation that prohibits invasive pat-downs by federal airport security agents. The bill would expand the federal definition of “official oppression” to ban federal employees from improperly touching a person’s private areas. Violations would constitute a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail and a maximum $4,000 fine. Hopefully Gov. Perry will sign it.

Did George Soros force 0bama to switch parties? Why else would he go to Iowa just before the Republican Caucus? Oh, never fear, he was just promoting spend more and union love. I guess if Alcoa doesn’t give the union workers a raise, the EPA will write some new pollution emissions regulations for the aluminim industry.

While the convention that was writing the Constitution of the United States was still in session, a lady asked Benjamin Franklin what the delegation was creating. “A republic, madam,” he said, “if you can keep it.”

One Nation, UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, with Liberty and Justice for All.

I love my candidate

National statistics for both parties remind us that the potential to be reelected is much greater than the potential to get elected in the first place. This, is in spite of the fact that most all voters want the scoundrels thrown out either because they are too liberal or too conservative. In fact, snakes and cockroaches are normally rated as more trustworthy and liked better than the average congress person, senator, president or most any politician in general.

There are 1000’s of statistics published as to why incumbents are reelected, and reams of rhetoric expounding on the rules and regulations that are written to favor the incumbent.

I, your esteemed blogger have boiled it down to the basics as to why we keep reelecting slime and crooks.

MY congressman is a concerned, caring and honorable gentleperson who looks out for his constituents.

YOURS, on the other hand, sucks.

Did’ja ever feel …

… that you might be just a little “out of touch”?

Headlines in this morning’s crop of newsletters include

  • Virtual Rooms for Distance Learning
  • Best Practices for CMOs
  • Tax small business more so Govt. doesn’t shrink
  • Time Magazine will celebrate 4th of July with shredded Constitution
  • Ron Paul And Barney Frank Introduce Bill To End Pot Prohibition
  • Hillary Clinton Questions Congress’s Patriotism Over Libya

Headlines from the Huh? What did they just say? department

  • China’s peaceful rise is unique to its own circumstances and is not based on looting, plundering and invading
  • China, on Obama’s troop withdrawal plan for Afghanistan: “The political significance has outweighed the military significance.”

The first 2 up there are high-tech mumbo-jumbo nonsense. As to the others? They are just tripe to make you believe you are out of the loop.

I am not out of the loop. I am just not going to participate in the stupidity and business as usual mentality of the Washington Elite. I have a much better plan.

If you support NoBama or NoPaul, or anyone in between, you are part of the problem, not part of the solution. Our country is facing many severe problems. The answers do not always call for compromise with those who would do nothing, or worse, promote more of the same, causing our country to go deeper and deeper into the hole we have dug.

Here is a solution. No Compromise. No bending our beliefs, no abandoning our moral positions. There is no room left in this country for compromise. And, as long as Eric Cantor, John Boehner and any other congress persons or senators believe we can compromise, they cannot and should not be considered for reelection.

Look for the candidates in your area that believe as you do that this country has had enough government intrusion into your life and your pocket book. Help that candidate get nominated in the primaries. Then, help that candidate get elected.

The larger the number of  bastards currently in office that lose the general election, the quicker we will get back control of the government.

    He (don’t) Have A Dream

    His name is on a street in almost every burg, town and city in this Country.

    OH! I’m sorry, I let my mind wander before I started. Here I was thinking of our POTUS, you know, the one with a new Plan Zero every day, the POTUS with no clear destination in mind for our Domestic or Foreign Affairs? He who lies with some regularity about his past, his present and his future?

    That POTUS, not the preacher. He had a dream. POTUS only has an empty reflection from his mirror. Of course, his apparant lack of leadership could be just because he doesn’t have any of those new, green, solar-powered teleprompters. Maybe that will make a difference. Him and Algore need to discuss that.

    He has a problem! He needs to lead! Of course, that is hard to do when you can’t even follow.

    Now, Behind Door #1, Lead
              Behind Door #2, Follow
              Behind Door #3, Get out of the way

             Behind Door #4 (I know, only 3 allowed…) Obfuscate, Lie and Confuse, while showing a total lack of leadership, common sense or anything else resembling activities engaged in by a rational human being.

    Which oh which door will POTUS choose? Based on current and past performance,  Door #4, of course.

    The liberal progressives claim that Eric Cantor and other GOP leaders walking out of the useless “budget” talks today are pandering to the tea party and conservative members of their base.

    So, why did they walk out? Simple. The Democratic  “grown-ups” believe that the only way to reduce our budget deficit is to spend more and raise taxes. And they (the Dim-o-crats) think Lindsay Lohan is a dumb bimbo?

    Pop quiz: Who said “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.  Americans deserve better.” 
    If you guessed Eric Cantor, Mitt Romney, Jon Huntsman or John Boehner, you would be wrong.

    Correct answer: Barack H. Obama, spoken in the Senate in March 2006.

    My, how times change. However, I, like the guy with a street almost everywhere named after him, have a dream.

    let us all vote to throw the bastards out of office.

    "a moment of truth" in crisis

    BBC headlines this morning claimed that Greece faces a “moment of truth” in their financial crisis.

    Well, I got news for ya’ folks, the US is facing if not a “moment of truth”, at least a “moment of realization” for the unwashed that blindly follow the Usurping Prevaricator aka POTUS. One cannot be so stupid as to not realize that Mr. Obama is doing his best to subvert the Law of Congress and the United States Constitution. His latest effort to give “executive amnesty” is just one more step too far. Not that he has not already taken many steps too far on other matters. Here are just a few I recall from recent news stories.

    1. furnished falsified birth records
    2. refused to release school, medical or financial records from his “law” practice.
    3. refused to comply with federal laws regarding Medicare financial planning requirements
    4. engaged in warfare with Libya without congressional approval
    5. bowed and kowtowed to foreign kings, disgracing The Sovereign United States of America
    6. kissed ass of his contributors, playing favorites with Unions and other large contributors
    7.  has done his best to destroy American Energy, instead furnishing money to Brazil and telling them we will be their greatest customer while preventing domestic off shore drilling
    8. has permitted Cuba to lease off-shore areas that US companies are prohibited from drilling in by virtue of US regulations to oil and gas companies based in Spain, Norway, India, Malaysia, Venezuela, Vietnam and Brazil. China currently has oil leases on Cuban soil, but not off-shore. Yet.
    9. has had his Justice Dept. sue states to prevent them from forcing the Federal Government to uphold Federal Law.
    10. has refused to defend our borders from illegal intrusion
    11. has consistently spent our Federal Tax Dollars for his own reelection campaign fund raising junkets
    12. has consistently appointed “Czars” to circumvent congressional approval while appointing radical progressive socialists to “supervise” the destruction of American society
    13. has increased the Federal Debt by a larger amount than that spent by the entire federal government from its inception up through WWII.
    14. has no plan for ending hostilities in Afghanistan or Iraq, with no firm goals for this or any other foreign policy objectives
    15. has subverted our Military by attempting to cut medical benefits, limit numbers, and force them to accept orders from foreign authority (NATO, if you are in doubt)
    16. has supported initiatives from the United Nations that would allow the UN to control certain legal actions in our county.
    17. has all but thrown Israel under the bus
    18. did throw Poland and other former Eastern Block countries under the bus when he cancelled promised missile defenses in Eastern Europe.
    19. has stolen private corporate property for the Gvoernment, and favored unions over private bond holders
    20. has used the threat of govt. leagal intrusion to bully Soveign States, insurance companies and banks to bow to his demands.

    Need I go on? I can, but what is the point?

    Now, a little prediction.

    This usurping prevaricator has an incredibly slim chance of surviving reelection. However, you can expect him to do anything to remain in power.

    I predict that if we do not remove this Scourge to the American Way of Life, you can look for a terrorist attack or home-grown uprising causing a “National Emergency Requiring War-Powers Act” declaration of martial law, thereby using Government intervention to attempt to guarantee his reelection, or an outright attempt to cancel or “postpone” our 2012 elections to allow this thief of Our Liberty and Freedoms to remain in power similar to the slime he bows to in the enslaved and dictator-run countries of the world.

    We must force our congress to initiate legal action to remove this person from the White House, either through Impeachment or just out-right ejection as an illegal occupant who was not Constitutionally permitted to run for President of the United States.

    Well Shoot My Mouth!

    Before I get off on today’s comments (sorry, another Weiner joke?) I was doing some research and ran across this little poster.  Just to refresh your memory, E. E. Schmitz was Mayor of San Francisco during the 1906 earthquake. According to reports, about 9 or 10 people were shot while looting, and then there was no more trouble.

    My, how times have changed. Compare this poster with recent statements by Mayor Newsom:

    The television and radio campaign will tell immigrants they have “safe access” to public services, including schools, health clinics and – perhaps most importantly – the police, something that local law enforcement officials say is a chronic problem in émigré communities.
    “It is a trademark of a criminal predator to convince victims that because of the victims’ immigration status that they – not the predator – will be treated as the criminal,” said Kamala Harris, the city’s district attorney. “We want to remove that tool from the criminal’s tool belt.”

    Rampant infusion of illegal immigrants shall certainly follow this campaign. Welfare and crime will increase to the point where legitimate working citizens leave in disgust. I recently received some pictures from another city that has had a severe illegal immigrant problem. What-oh-what will all the transgenders do when their city looks like Detroit?

    The planned topic for today’s discussion was the Republican Party. As a party that professes God, Family and the Right to Work without Govt. Intervention, they have once again made the mouthed motto a lie and subversion of the true colors of so many of their “party members” This morning’s headlines blared “Republicans vote handouts for Big Labor!” Yesterday, the House passed the largely non-controversial Military Construction/Veterans Affairs Appropriations (MilCon) bill for FY 2012.

    Weiner Award

    In 2009, Obama used an Executive Order to compel  private contractors to use only unionized workers on Federal projects. Last month, Republicans on the Appropriations Committee inserted language in the MilCon bill to nullify any executive mandate for project labor agreements. Ironically, it was a Republican, union shill Rep. Steve LaTourette, who proposed an amendment to strike out the anti PLA section from the bill. He rounded up 26 other Republicans and helped Democrats preserve Obama’s pro-union discrimination by 204-203! Rep LaTourette gets the Weiner Award of the day.

    I hereby would like to also provide the ammunition for the Republican sharp-shooters (candidates) that will be using their skills to take pot-shots at the president. It is rumored that the RNC has already issued a new tool for use as part of the Republican Presidential Campaign Welcome Kit. I have a rare proto-type photo of the new device that is supposed to help Candidates take aim at the Nobama initiatives. I guess that gives a whole new meaning to the old saying about “shooting off your mouth.” On the upside, OSHA should love this device as it is almost impossible to “shoot yourself in the foot.”

    My Own New Rules

    The FBI announced today it has created new rules allowing it, without permission of the courts, congress or God, to willfully violate the following Amendments.

    • Fourth Amendment – Protection from unreasonable search and seizure.

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

    • Fifth Amendment – due process, double jeopardy, self-incrimination, eminent domain.

    No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

    • Ninth Amendment – Protection of rights not specifically enumerated in the Constitution.

    The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

    • Tenth Amendment – Powers of States and people.

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

    Terrorist Gardens

    Under the pretense of searching for Home Grown Terrorists (now available in natural and genetically manipulated varieties, suitable for planting in your Topsy-Turvy Tomato planter), the FBI can now peek over your fence, rifle through your garbage and public or private records.

    According to The New York Times,  the new rules allow agents to use surveillance squads multiple times during the “assessment” phase. Currently, those teams can only be used once during that phase.

    Just think if you are a Tea Party Member speaking out for replacement of the current administration, you could be classed as being small-cell or lone-wolf plotters, thereby allowing  agents to look up people on various databases without opening up a low-level inquiry known as an “assessment.”  The new rules “allow” agents to administer lie-detector tests to and search the trash of potential informants and suspects.
    Now for some of (Tah-Dah!) My Own New Rules
    1. Never let them see the whites of your eyes.
    2. Leave nothing unshredded
    3. Keep any other new rules secret and unplublished.
    Way past time to take back the government from the anti-any-freedoms people.
