There are reports that the Oval Office had an extreme make-over this past weekend. I marvel at the timing, well… no I don’t!
But, if I were the betting type, I would wager the primary color used is red, or possibly green. But since I am not, it really doesn’t matter. What matters is was this really necessary?
Was the expenditure from the public treasury justifiable in our precarious economic times?
Or are those of the political elite that far disconnected from the average Joe?
We shall see, soon!

Dear Mr President,
America wants health care reform. What Americans do not want is a 2000+ page bill that takes complete control of the best health care system in the world.
Start over. Do it a piece at a time. We do not want this horrible bill that was written by union hacks and lobbyists. It is patently obvious that this bill is more about the growth of government leading toward a totalitarian state than it is about health care.
Actually, I look forward to you ramming this monstrosity down our throats. It will mean the end of progressivism in America for a long time. This fall we will vote in a congress that cares about America that will repeal your monstrosity and make America great again.
Do the country a favor. Resign, go back to Indonesia, disappear from politics. With any luck, within a few years, an American that is actually black will get into the White House.

Here is another treatise on isms.
The left is bankrupt, there ideas empty, and there ideologies vapid. We are on the precipice of a worldwide collapse of economies.
There is a mass move to suck money from the world’s producers and lavish it upon the uber-rich, all the while extolling their so-called policies of taxing the rich. It is an empty game, and has been proven for decades.
Yet these elitists (read smarter than you) have retreated to colleges, where there ideas have not languished in mothballs. They have been used to indoctrinate an entire generation or two in communism. Some were smart enough to resist, however, most who have attended college in the last 15 years have bought the liberal swill and believe it to work.
They have trusted in the words of their teachers, they have trusted in “science.” But, what they have not done, is to check it out for themselves to see if what they were taught is real.
Well, check them out for yourselves… today’s “flourishing” communist economies, Cuba, North Korea, and Venezuela.
Any up for relocating tomorrow?Print This Post Filed under government, news, views | Tags: communism, Democrats, economy, liberal, socialism, the lie | Comments Off on The Pending Implosion Of Liberal Socialism
POTUS gave his State of the Onion address last night. It went something like this:
blah blah blah Bush’s fault blah blah lecture blah health care is what America wants blah blah I am arrogant and do not listen blah blah we need to drill offshore and build more nukes blah blah mare bailouts blah blah bigger government blah blah repeal DADT and let gays serve openly blah blah you people need to listen to me because I know what you need and will do it to you and your great grand children’s grand children blah blah blah.
About the only thing that surprised me was his call for offshore drilling and building more nuclear plants. We need nukes to get off the middle east oil addiction, but it will be ten to fifteen years before any new nuke plants go online. Federal regulation is the main thing responsible for the long lead time for this. The radical environmentalist fringe is also good at keeping this completely carbon free energy source form becoming reality. Not that I care about the man made climate change hoax, even though BO proclaimed it was still reality in his speech.
Offshore drilling is all well and good, but what we really need to tap into is the reserves on the coastal region of ANWR. No, not in those pretty flower filled meadows the environmentalists show in their propaganda. The part of ANWR that looks just like Prudhoe bay, which coincidentally is just a few miles down the shore, where the oil pipeline head is. By the way, the pipeline is nowhere near capacity, so any new oil would be welcome.
Another place we need to be drilling is the Bakken oil formation in North Dakota and Montana. Tapping this formation alone could make us independent of the middle east oil fields controlled by violent repressive regimes that think human rights means sharia law and believe women are simply cattle.
Except for the energy blurb he gave that will be stomped on by the enviro groups the left includes in their power base, the speech was another example of how the Progressives that have taken over the Democratic party simply refuse to listen to what Americans want: small government in Washington that does not suck the life blood from the country.
That is obviously something that has to be done by American citizens demanding candidates that truly feel their pain and believe that the federal government has to be scaled back in a massive way. A second goal that is just as important is to root out the Progressive influence in education, the courts and the media that has worked for years to change history, deny God and dumb down the populace.
Do you truly believe America can and should be great again? Pray a lot. Get involved in politics. Join the local tea party movement. Consider running for government. If you cannot run, work to elect candidates that share your values and want to fix the problem that Ronald Reagan talked about in his first inaugural address:
government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.
That is more true today than it was in 1981.Print This Post Filed under CULTure, Global Warming, government, history, views | Tags: corruption, Democrats, economy, government, obama, politics, tough times | Comments (2)
Our tax system is one that encourages people to lie, cheat, and steal, and it is also a way for our government to hold over our heads the threat of our freedom. If we were to go to a National Sales Tax, we could take away all the loop holes for people to cheat the system. Whenever someone made a purchase they would be paying their share of taxes. The rich would pay more because they spend more, and the poor would pay less because they would spend less. But why would the more than 400 attorneys that are presently in Congress get rid of a tax system that is so complicated you need lawyers to interpret it? They won’t. Congress likes to keep things complicated so that they are then needed to deal with the complications. You should not need a CPA to pay your taxes, but you do. Congress likes to keep everything complicated. Well there is one thing they have kept simple. Their pay raise every year. They have that arranged so that it will take effect every year without fail unless they vote for it NOT to happen. The way they have it set up is a way that allows them to say that they did NOT vote for a pay increase. The truth is every Congressman can say that he did not vote for a pay increase and yet it would still take effect.
They do not take part in the same health care system we do. They set themselves apart from the rest of us This was exemplified in the 80’s when so many of them were caught kiting checks. Something that would land you and I in jail
This sounds like I am blaming Congress. No, I am blaming you and I. Because every election cycle we each vote for the one that promises to give us the biggest piece of the pie. The truth is, there is only so much pie, and every ingredient used to make that pie comes from you and I and, unfortunately our children’s future as well.
The sad thing is that this sick economy will NEVER be well again as long as those attending to it continue to put band-aids on severed arteries. They will only slow the bleeding, but we continue to bleed nonetheless.
We need to abandon politicians and elect true leaders. Unfortunately I am not sure that can be done one congressional seat at a time. The future looks bleak, and at times I think that this house of cards just might have to totally fall apart before we can begin to build it on a solid foundation again

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!!
A friend sent this along to me. I can’t think of a reason to disagree.
I am sending this to virtually everybody on my e-mail list and that includes conservatives, liberals, and everybody in between. Even though we disagree on a number of issues, I count all of you as friends. My friend and neighbor wants to promote a “Congressional Reform Act of 2010”. It would contain eight provisions, all of which would probably be strongly endorsed by those who drafted the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
I know many of you will say, “this is impossible”. Let me remind you, Congress has the lowest approval of any entity in Government, now is the time when Americans will join together to reform Congress – the entity that represents us.
We need to get a Senator to introduce this bill in the US Senate and a Representative to introduce a similar bill in the US House. These people will become American hero’s..
A Fellow American
Congressional Reform Act of 2010
Based on the premise that serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.
1. Term Limits: 12 years only, one of the possible options below.
A. Two Six year Senate terms
B. Six Two year House terms
C. One Six year Senate term and three Two Year House terms
2. No Tenure / No Pension:
A congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.
3. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security:
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund moves to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, Congress participates with the American people.
4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan just as all Americans.
5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise or allow an automatic pay raise if they do not vote to stop it.
Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
7. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
8. All contracts with past and present congressmen are void effective 1/1/11 .
The American people did not make this contract with congressmen, congressmen made all these contracts for themselves.
We do not need 2000 pages of weasel words. The US Constitution is only 17 pages long and has governed the country for over 200 years. One page of direct points like this will do the job.
Is any politician brave enough to sponsor this bill? We should make sponsoring this bill a requirement for being elected in 2010.Print This Post Filed under email, government, News&Views, views | Tags: change, conservative, corruption, economy, government | Comments (2)
And if I were a betting man, I think in the end, they would all include spending more money that the state has, instead of what he has promised!
Politicians, Democrats mostly including those posing as Republicans, have shown no desire to be frugal with the public’s dollar ANYWHERE. They could care less, it is plainly evident, and it is our fault!
Start locally, attend city and county hall meetings. Hold these people accountable. Throw all the incumbents out, period! New politicians will take awhile to figure out how to feed in corruption, but like a pig to slop, they will eventually find it!Print This Post Filed under government, news, views | Tags: California, corruption, Democrats, economy, government, politics | Comments Off on Schwarzenegger has big goals for his final year as governor
Is that all we can possibly elect?
The bad thing is, they are really not two parties? They are almost the same. One likes to give charity to corporations and get bigger and tax the people to death. The other one likes to give charity to weird people and get bigger and tax people to death.
Only now we have a party that likes to give charity to corporations and weird people and get bigger and bigger and bigger and print money to make all the money we had worthless and call the other party names and call the people that call them out and tell about their evil lies “not worthy news reporters” or some such, and it lies and lies and lies.
We need to get out of this mess. Both parties are the same — they both want to become totalitarian regimes and destroy the freedom the people are supposed to have. The only problem is, if both parties are horribly evil and all the rules are set up to only allow those two parties, how do We, The People fix this mess??? It is really obvious they are not going to fix the problem. They ARE the problem!!!!
Can We The People agree that BOTH parties are broken, BOTH parties need to be booted out of power and WE the People have to vote for people of integrity that will dismantle the monstrosity we allowed to grow around us, to suck our freedom and ability to be great right out of us, the monstrosity that has dumbed down our children, denied our God, destroyed our heritage and made us vulnerable to our enemies?
We The People have to get our act together and fix all the horribleness that We The People in our apathy and greed and selfishness allowed to grow like a malignant tumor on the world.
Are We The People ready???Print This Post Filed under government, News&Views, salvation | Tags: can we fix it?, economy, government, politics, stupidity | Comments Off on Why are we stuck with two parties?
