HISTORICAL QUOTE OF THE WEEK - "Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other." ABRAHAM LINCOLN

Tuesday, March 31, 2009


The United States Of America as we have known it ceased to exist during an announcement made by the President of The United States. Barack Obama announced that essentially government was taking over two major companies who up until the announcement were publicly owned by stock holders and privately managed by a CEO and Board of Directors.

We have witnessed at the behest of Barack Obama and his elitist advisers the government take over of General Motors and Chrysler, two of the ,"Big 3, " car manufacturers, both publicly held and privately managed but now controlled by the Obama administration.

Many of the liberal Kool Aid drinkers will try and spin this as protecting the American people and the tax money that has been given to the two companies which has not resulted in turning either company around. They will try to spin that Obama is doing nothing more than insuring that good money is not added to bad and that he is saving jobs by moving in on the automakers.

But the truth and the dangerous precedence that has taken place with this take over is the end of United States Capitalism and Free Market business and the beginning of total government control and the ability to seize any business if the President and his advisers decide that a particular business does not meet their standards or qualifications to operate.

The Kool Aid drinkers will further state that Obama did not take over GM and Chrysler because he stated that he was not interested in running either company. But the fact is that a President demanded the resignation of a CEO of a publicly held and privately run company. Demanded that another company would only continue to exist IF they accepted a merger offered by a foreign held company, namely Italian owned Fiat to merge with Chrysler.

Then stating to the American people that they need not worry about service or warranty issues because both were better now because they will be backed by ,"The United States of America." This is not stepping in to help a company or save jobs but a deliberate take over of American business and a complete and total violation of the Constitution as well as the introduction of the nationalizing of business by Obama.

Nowhere in Article II of the Constitution does the President have the authority to fire a CEO of a private business. Nowhere in Article II of the Constitution does the President have the authority to back any of the business practices of private business yet he has backed warranty and service for GM and Chrysler.

Backing the warranties and firing and hiring CEO's is not just assistance by a concerned President. This is a deliberate action to take over both companies. In fact Obama stated that the restructuring plans that the private management presented were not good enough so his advisers would now step in to assist with the restructuring plans. In other words the Obama administration will now dictate to GM and Chrysler how they will operate and the direction for the future of the companies. This is not assisting troubled companies but nationalizing.

In a free market society if a business is experiencing trouble they have options short of closing down to restructure and rebuild. One of those is through bankruptcy reorganization which is what should have happened with GM and Chrysler last year rather than bailout money. Now Obama has moved in and taken over the companies and even if allowed to file for bankruptcy the Obama administration will control the reorganization and the reemergence from bankruptcy.

Additionally not once during the take over announcement did Obama place any of the blame for the demise of GM and Chrysler on the two most guilty culprits. The over regulation imposed by the government and the UAW whose demands have been the driving force behind the failure of the American auto industry. And as the companies have fallen the UAW refused to make concessions to assist the struggling companies.

But with the government under Obama now running GM and Chrysler the UAW need not worry because the American tax payer will now foot the bill for the blood letting that will continue by the labor union.

Now Obama heads to Europe with the destruction of Capitalism coup under his belt to receive the praise of European Socialists who still drool over the American messiah. Through all of this madness the Russians have presented the only ray of sanity as it was announced on the same day as the take over of the automakers, that Russia will propose at the G20 meeting that all world currencies be placed back on the Gold Standard.

Amazing a former Communist Nation is proposing Capitalistic economic solutions while the President of the strongest Capitalist, (until now), Nation is moving to Socialism, the nationalizing of business and spreading the wealth in a manner that Vladimir Lenin would approve. Welcome to Obamaland.

The old adage, "action speaks louder than words," has never been more appropriate than it is now when applying it to Barack Obama and his agenda of, "change," which in reality is taking our Nation toward total bankruptcy. He continually tells the American people during talk show visits, orchestrated press conferences, and policy or legislative announcements that without his agenda America will never recover from the current economic turmoil.

Yet the truth is that recovery from our economic problems and real concern about the well being of Americans is the last thing on Obama's mind. Long before the economic woes that we are facing began showing their ugly head, Barack Obama was promising in campaign stop after campaign stop a massive social spending agenda that promised to balloon government to an unprecedented size, while spending more than any time in our history, and that is what he has done since taking office.

He has used that guise of concern over the economy and the well being of the American people and the large amount of jobs lost as a deception and cover for an agenda planned long before he took office. Using every scare tactic available, every exaggerated statistic and every means at his disposal to push through the largest transfer of power to the Federal Government in our history. And he is just beginning.

Any economist with any sense agrees that the worst thing that can be done in a recession is to borrow and spend, creating huge deficits at a time when an economy is experiencing constant negative growth. Yet Obama continues down this path without pause and using the fear in our economic situation as a tool to force through his take over of American business and the American way of life.

I heard a very disturbing statistic which if allowed to happen would mean the end of American Capitalism and the full implementation of American Socialism created by and in the image of Barack Obama. At his current rate of spending and expanding of government the debt accumulated by Obama will become 45% of the United States GDP in the next fiscal year. Which means that 45 cents of every dollar produced by the labor of American workers will be obligated by the current Administration in debt to an ever expanding government.

The true agenda of Obama and the only real concern that he has is to create an American Socialism conceived by Democrats and created to give the government under their control domination over our economy and our lives.

Norman Thomas a Socialist Presidential Candidate in the 1940's once stated, "The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism,' they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day, America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened." Barack Obama is out to prove this statement true and make it a reality for America.

When asked by Congresswoman Michelle Bachman ( R MN), where the Treasury Department finds Constitutional authority to seize or control private business in America, tax evading Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner speaking as a member of Obama socialist administration, evaded the question and tried to come up with any conceivable avenue of authority from the Congress to the committee he was facing knowing that he could not provide a truthful answer about Constitutional authority to Bachman because there is no authority found for government take over of business.

But consider that this is an administration whose boss, Barack Obama, believes that the Constitution is only a, "series of negative liberties, " that tells what the government cannot do but not what the government , " must do, " on behalf of the people. He considers this a flaw in the Constitution and his responsibility to correct it by making government the authority over Americans.

The reality of the Constitution is that the Founders never intended for government to be the authority and provider for the Nation and as such limiting the power of government and stating what it cannot do allowing for the American people through freedom from government to do for themselves. "Providing for the common welfare," means allowing a free atmosphere in this Nation to allow each citizen to prosper without government encumbrances or intervention. Not making government the welfare provider.

Obama's agenda has violated much of the Constitution through his massive power grab but especially the Tenth Amendment which states, " 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." The Seven Articles of the Constitution state specifically the power and authority of the government and the Tenth Amendment passes all other authority to the States and the people.

Obama has and is continually over stepping these Constitutional boundaries in violation of the law and principles of our land. But this matters little to him because in actuality he does not believe in the Constitution and he and and his Democrat cronies see it only as a grand historical document which was fine in its day but does not apply today, especially if it is counter to their socialist agenda.

I have always admired and studied our Founders and been extremely thankful for the sacrifices that each made to give birth to the Nation that I love. They created through the power of law and Constitutional principles a Nation, if allowed to truly follow those principles, where everyone is free to his/her own pursuits and prosperity without fear of an over powerful and encompassing government standing in the way of freedom and prosperity.

Yet in that admiration, while understanding the anger and frustration that drove our Forefathers to bring Revolution and fight the government oppression being forced upon them by the British Crown, I never truly identified with their plight until now. The anger and frustration that I feel as Obama creates program after program, borrowing and spending our country into bankruptcy brings that identifiction with our Founders.
Expanding government to the point that it is quickly becoming impossible to define where the government ends and the freedom of the people begins. Forcing an agenda which truly has no concern for the people but only the passage of a preconceived socialism whose goal is expansion and take over and not economic revival as stated.

I now can identify fully with the spirit of Revolution that our Founders faced and the need to stand and fight for the freedom threatened by an oppressive government. We may not have a Revolution by violent force as our forefathers, but if we want our country to remain free and each of us as Americans to have the ability to provide and prosper without government mandates or intervention, forcing dependency on the government whether we want it or not, then we must stand as one voice and make that voice heard until it cannot be ignored.

We cannot wait for a voter revolution in 2010 to remove liberals and RINOS, because by then it may be to late and the government to expansive to reverse the damage and return to Constitutional principles of limited government and individual prosperity. Obama is poll driven and has proved that by his recent tour using any means available to get before the American people as his numbers began tanking. We can drive those numbers down and force both he and the Congress to listen if we stand as one and fight this take over and demand that the march to socialism stop and that Obama return this land to her rightful owners, the people of The United States of America.

I wish that someone in our own government would lash out with the truth to Barack Obama as Daniel Hannan did to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Hannan railed at Brown for doing exactly the same thing that Obama is doing in our own country, trying to borrow and spend to end the recession.

Hannan stressed the stupidity and irresponsibility knowing that it will not and cannot work. Bankrupting Great Britain as it will also bankrupt The United States.

Hannan was the special guest on Hannity's program on Fox News. In addition to his inspirational speech to Gordan Brown and by proxy since few of our representatives are willing to lash out with this same truth to Barack Obama, Hannan warned and actually pleaded to our Congress to never permit nationalized health care. A program that Obama is already making moves to impliment.

Citing the massive failures and the tremendous cost to British tax payers, Hannan warned of the dangers of nationalized health care for both the advancement of medical care and the treatment dangers that it creates for patients.

Brits face long waits for necessary medical treatment and lack proper perscription availability because of nationaized health care and as he put it, "no contractual agreement," between the patient and the provider which limits care and endangers the patient.

I hope that many of our own representatives have and/or will listen to Mr. Hannan and stand up to Obama with the truth as this conservative British patriot did to Gordon Brown.

No matter how Obama tries to spin it, or how he thinks that only he has the answer to economic recovery, it all adds up to DEBT. Unsustainable and a strategy for US Bankruptcy!

YoU cAn'T mAkE tHiS sTuFf Up - MORAGA, Calif. — Twenty-two students at St. Mary's College of California have done something their predecessors famously did 50 years ago: cram into a phone booth. Teams competed to fit as many bodies as possible into a phone booth on the campus green Wednesday, a half-century after Life magazine published a now-famous photograph of 22 St. Mary's students stuffed into a phone booth, a popular college stunt in the 1950s.

Current students matched the number in the 1959 image, though they failed to break the campus record of 24 set in 1984. St. Mary's officials say a South African team set the world record of 25 set in 1958.

I am wondering just where they actually found a Phone Booth. Haven't seen a real Phone Booth for quite some time ! - YoU cAn'T mAkE tHiS sTuFf Up

Obama expands government more that any and all President's in history. Crushing our country with an insurmountable debt and then calls of sacrifice and thrift from the people. What an arrogant hypocrite !

YoU cAn'T mAkE tHiS sTuFf Up - LINCOLN, Nebraska — Residents of a small southwest Nebraska town have a question for state officials: You're not doing anything with that old electric chair, are you? The Nebraska Supreme Court ruled last year that the state's use of the electric chair was unconstitutional. Some people in McCook — population just under 8,000 — think "Old Sparky" could be a tourist attraction and have offered to take it off the state's hands.

Fifteen men were executed in the chair, which is about 210 miles (338 kilometers) east of McCook at the Nebraska State Penitentiary in Lincoln. Corrections department spokeswoman Connie Nemec says there are no immediate plans to move the chair.

If they get the chair, I wonder if the will, "charge," an admission to tourists. You know tourists just might get a ,"charge," out of seeing the chair! - YoU cAn'T mAkE tHiS sTuFf Up

The TelePrompter in Chief refuses to see how it is impossible to borrow and spend to prosperity. If it could happen, loan companies would be the most popular place in the country and every American would be rich through the, "borrow and spend you way to wealth," scheme that Obama is using for the country.

YoU cAn'T mAkE tHiS sTuFf Up - SAN FRANCISCO — The Clorox Company is offering a $5,000 reward and a year’s supply of toilet cleaning products for tips leading to the arrest of San Francisco’s notorious portable potty pyromaniac. The Oakland-based chemical company deployed a “potty patrol” team in the city today to make residents aware of its offer marrying marketing and community service.

Since November, more than two dozen construction site toilets have been set on fire in the city, causing an estimated $50,000 in property damage and leaving a trail of foul-smelling evidence.

Talk about ready made combustible fuel ! Clorox employees will have a great item for their future resume. I can see it now, " 2009 - employed by the Clorox Company. Job Position - Potty Patrol. Duties - Patrol to prevent the destruction of portable potties and inform the public of a reward of free wipes for a year." - YoU cAn'T mAkE tHiS sTuFf Up

Barry, Barry quite contrary, how does your garden grow ? "With spending bills and deficit hills making debts for the people to owe."

I truly tired. I really did. I actually tried to watch the fully orchestrated press conference held during prime time by Barack Obama. After about ten minutes I could not take anymore of the canned questions and answers and the arrogance that recovery would only happen with his plan and his spending.

So I grabbed a DVD and figured that since Obama was discussing his plan to destroy our country I could at least watch a movie where Martians tried to do the same and ended up failing in our destruction as I pray Obama will also. I popped in Steven Spielberg's remake of the H.G. Wells classic ,"War Of The Worlds," and sat back to a rather restfull and enjoyable evening.

The above video shows clips from the movie with music and video of an fantastic musical version written by Jeff Wayne which was narrated by Richard Burton originally performed and recorded in 1978. An excellent CD set that I also own and listen to quite often.

So rather than suffer through the frustration of discussing the Obama press conference, I share with you my restful evening with great music that I have enjoyed for 30 years. I hope you enjoy it also!

Crank up the government printing presses again because The Trillion Dollar man, Barack Obama has introduced yet another spending program that hovers around his favorite number, one trillion dollars. Wall Street greeted the news of the toxic asset buyout with a rally that has become scarce since Obama took office.

The Wall Street reaction was due to the fact that this particular trillion dollar program does at least address the root cause of the financial collapse that has crippled our economy, worthless mortgages whose true value is well below the value being absorbed by the bank or lending institution which carries the paper on these sour mortgages.

The Obama administration trying to place a new spin on these toxic properties are now referring to them as, "legacy assets." But call them what you will they are the root cause of the financial debacle and as such are a tremendous drag on financial institutions and credit which has all but frozen the credit market since the collapse last year.

The program depends on a combination of private investment and government money to purchase the toxic assets. Private investment is planned to take up about seven dollars matching the governments seven dollars for every $100 dollars of paper value of the toxic assets. The rest of the purchase is to come from loans from the FDIC and the Federal Reserve, a combined loan of about $500 billion dollars.

The governments initial seven dollar purchase will come form TARP money. Now here is the sleazy part of the program. The $500 billion dollar , "loan," from the Fed and FDIC will come from the printing of more money, devaluing the dollar once again, that the FED will then loan to the Treasury to purchase the assets. Either way the money comes from tax payers and further devalued currency.

Relieving the drag on the credit market of these toxic asset could free up lending once again but it all comes way to late in light of the trillions of new spending that Obama has introduced since taking office. This priority was obviously not a priority with Obama and as such one has to wonder whether he is actually truly interested in the struggling economy or just his expansion of government and socialistic programs and this particular trillion dollar plan was a desperate answer to sagging numbers and an angered public.

The market jump came because some program to relieve the credit crunch has been anticipated since Obama took office but Obama's policy priorities in spending came well before addressing the root cause of the financial trouble. A trillion here , a trillion there, what does it matter as long as liberal spending is passed.

The Congressional Budget Office projections are showing that Obama's figures in his budget fall far short of actually budget deficits and that he is leading this country down the path of unsustainable deficits and national bankruptcy. Yet he still continues to spend, print money and expand deficits more than every President in history combined.

The dollar whose value is well below the value of the denomination now, will soon become just a piece of paper whose only true value will be the historical picture of George Washington. The purchasing power of American currency will be as weak as any third world country and we have a President who is not concerned and is hastening the day when that devaluation becomes a reality. The people are angry, the government is in chaos and Obama laughs at the problem calling it gallows humor. Yes my friends, change is in the air and it is bringing destruction with it!

The 2008 campaign has been over for nearly five months. The inauguration took place just over 60 days ago. Yet Barack Obama still acts as if he is campaigning and trying to convince voters to elect him to office rather than fulfilling the responsibilities of the office he already holds with some sort of sanity.

Every press appearance he makes is staged like a campaign stump speech. In fact even the speech given during these press appearances whether to announce an appointment or to present yet another socialistic program, Obama rhetoric follows a campaign mode rather than a confident informative press briefing that is the norm for a President.

He has continually used every opportunity to make town hall or rally appearances to, "sell," his agenda. While meeting directly with the people is not unusual for a President, Obama's rallies like his press appearances are staged like campaign stump stops with slogan laden signs and campaign style rhetoric that use high sounding words with little if any true information to garner support from, "voters."

He still refers to the American people as ,"voters," rather than making the distinction between a President talking to and about the people and a candidate seeking support for an election from ,"voters."

Last week was a prime example of the never ending campaign that Obama is running. His office announced a prime time press conference which will take place on Tuesday of this week, which already promises to be as dull and uninformative as the last teleprompter staged prime time press conference that accomplished nothing except giving the appearance of yet another campaign stop for the road to socialism that Obama is staging.

He used the NCAA tournament as a means of getting tube time by selecting his brackets for the tournament and spreading campaign rhetoric to basketball fans. His quest appearance on the Leno Show was a nothing more that campaign hype. An appearance which in this writers opinion was demeaning to the Office of the President and was advertised by Obama's PR people as promoting his budget plan. Then he embarrassed himself and the Office with a insulting gaffe about the Special Olympics. Pitiful for a President but normal for a candidate.

Why does Barack Obama feel that he must continually campaign like a candidate who is seeking office rather than someone who has already been elected to office ? There have been many pundits who have talked about Obama's continual campaign mode, yet nobody seems to grasp exactly why he cannot stop campaigning.

The answer to this $64 thousand dollar question is simple. He cannot stop campaigning because campaigning is all that he is truly qualified to do. Take a look at his dismal record before taking office. He was a State Senator who campaigned to be a United States Senator who campaigned to be President.

Especially that last three years before being elected to the highest office in the land, campaigning was all that Obama did. He was on the stump during his entire tenure as a United States Senator and campaigning for office is his only real political experience and his only true political qualifications. And that is the experience that he has brought to the Presidency and the same experience he is using to act and appear , "Presidential."

During the actual campaign when the experience, or lack thereof, issue was becoming more intense in the few moments when what little media scrutiny that he received reached its peak, Obama stated that he had executive experience and used his campaign as the only example of that experience.

This particular example of Obama's executive , "experience," came to a head when it was stated that Governor Sarah Palin, the number two on the GOP ticket had more experience as an executive because of being a Mayor and a Governor than the number one, Obama, on the Democrat ticket.

Obama's response to this criticism was given on Anderson Coopers show on CNN. In reference to his campaign being executive experience Obama said, "Well, you know, my understanding is, is that Governor Palin's town of Wasilla has, I think, 50 employees. We have got 2,500 in this campaign. I think their budget is maybe $12 million a year. You know, we have a budget of about three times that just for the month. So, I think that our ability to manage large systems and to execute, I think, has been made clear over the last couple of years."

Now that Obama is an executive and the most powerful executive in the world he runs his office and his public relations in accordance to the only, as he believes, executive experience that he can follow. The running of a national campaign. And this limited , "experience, " if it can truly be considers executive experience is showing in everything that has happened since taking office.

Campaigns always appoint people who either do not work out or have skeletons that are discovered after hiring. When these people don't work our they are quickly replaced with someone else and many times key positions in a campaign are frequently replaced. Obama's appointments during his transition and since taking the Oath have followed a similar path with the same indifferent attitude to the skeleton's in the closet as are expressed when a campaign position is changed.

The tax problems or scandal problems of his appointees has bee fluffed off as if it they matter little and like a campaign many key positions are still left open as if not needed. Look at all of the vacancies in Treasury. 17 of 18 top spots are still empty and the Secretary is a tax evader who is a complete imbecile, lost in a sea of confusion during hard economic times. Obama's campaign response to Geithner's failings is to state that he is the best Treasury Secretary since, "Alexander Hamilton." Frankly I am surprised that Obama even knew who Hamilton was.

Like a national campaign when he speaks Obama presents high sounding rhetoric with almost no substance leaving out key details that are quickly pounced on when the legislation or the plan that he is campaigning for is actually revealed to the public. In most instances his rhetoric is so far from the truth found in the plan or legislation that it then comes across as a lie to which Obama again hits campaign mode to cover his butt.

He signs legislation and Executive Orders to the fan fair and hoopla of a political campaign only to see it come back to bite him when it is discovered that neither he nor any of his staff have bothered to read what he signed. Much like a candidate who makes a big deal about signing some sort of campaign pledge that he never intends to keep in the first place. Like pledging to use public financing for instance and then not doing so.

What we are seeing with the havoc and total confusion that is becoming normal activity in the Obama Presidency is a Chief Executive who is continually campaigning because that is all that he knows how to do. A President who sees his job responsibilities as a candidate who heads a campaign. Doing what impresses voters while promising to give away the house. Except as President he has the power to truly give away the house and is doing so.

This works fine during a campaign when what the candidate says has nor real ramifications or policy implications. But when this same campaign experience translates into complete and utter failure because of no real executive experience and that failure happens to come from the President of The United States then it becomes dangerous to the country, the people and our allies as the inexperience creates chaos and trouble.

The Presidency is collapsing because of Obama's inexperience but Leno's rating skyrocketed while Rome burned during Nero's appearance with his violin on late night television.

Never in my lifetime nor the lifetime of my son or future grandchildren could I in my wildest nightmare imagine that a President of The United States along with Congressional morons create the insane havoc that this President and his accomplices on Capitol Hill are making.

Using a self righteous anger to hide the truth of the total incompetence the President, his Treasury Secretary and a certain Connecticut Senator whose only attribute is that he can lie with a straight face and then defend it, join with an equally incompetent House Speaker and Congressional members to pass legislation that taxes 90 - 100 % of an individuals income.

Now like you I am angered about the $165 million dollars in bonuses that were issued by AIG with tax payer money. Money frankly that should have NEVER been given to a failing company in the first place rewarding failure with big bucks. But now in a move that can only be called one of the most asinine in our history, the House passes legislation to tax the bonuses at 90 - 100% which opens the door for this same Congress to in like manner tax ANYONE whose income is not pleasing to these self righteous jack asses who claim to represent the people.

As this debacle continued to develop, it became clear that not only did the jack ass who could not pay his taxes and was STILL confirmed as Treasury Secretary knew about this long before it happened but that he also instructed Chris Dodd to include an amendment in the, "stimulus bill," to ALLOW these bonuses, after both spent the first of the week acting like they had no idea how it happened.

Then the President in like manner acts like he is angered when he was the person who signed the bill into law with the bonus amendment and NEVER even tried to READ WHAT HE SIGNED! Does anyone in Washington have a brain or at least the most remote amount of intelligence ? This administration and the leaders in Congress are all acting like a bunch of spoiled children who haven't had their diapers changed and the rash is chafing their royal butts.

So what does the President do ? He hits the ESPN circuit making asinine predictions about the brackets for the NCAA tournament. Then jumps on Air Force One and heads to LA to make an appearance on the Leno Show acting like an innocent bystander who is just as enraged as ,"we the people."

Well I have news for you Mr. Obama , you are the President and the responsible party for the total circus that you have created in Washington and running to Leno and basketball does not change that. When a top official in London cannot get an answer on the phone at the Treasury Department because no one has been appointed and the Treasury Secretary is as lost as his boss in the White House, it is an embarrassment for our Nation and emboldens our enemies because they see just how weak Obama is making our country.

Then to top it all off the Speaker of the House stands before a group of illegal aliens and calls them patriots and the raids to make these illegals adhere to the law un - American prompting the secretary of Homeland Security to stop the raids completely showing the world that no one in Washington has a clue.

We haven't even made it through the first 100 days and already the entire administration is collapsing and the Congress is run rampant with power hungry idiots who think that the people of The United States must bow and thank then for saving their money. Money that these same idiots have stolen from us to give away at record levels with no end in sight!

Barack Obama what have you and your cronies done to my country ? You have spit on the Constitution, bankrupted our coffers, weakened our Nation and emboldening our enemies. Mr. Obama your trip to Leno is no different than Nero playing the violin while Rome burned. You are a joke and your administration along with the leadership in Congress are hell bent on destroying my country and ," we the people," are mad and will not allow you to continue. If we must fight you every second we will. And we have the law and the Constitution on our side because this is still our country !

Ken Taylor

NOTE: The tax legislation passed by the House is un-Constitutional, violating Article I, Section 9, Clause 3 preventing Congress from passing a Bill of Attainder which Constitutionally outlaws an act of legislation declaring a person or group of persons guilty of some crime and punishing them without the benefit of a trial. While morally wrong the AIG bonuses were legal especially since they were approved by amendment in the stimulus bill.

In a move that was obviously made because the out cry against it was so vocal and so strong, Barack Obama has scrapped a plan that would require Veterans to carry private health care in order to reimburse the VA for the cost of service related injuries including those sustained in active combat situations.

Fox News reports that the plan has been scrapped because the opposition from Veterans and Veteran groups who stated that Obama's plan was morally wrong because of a sacred obligation that our Nation has always held to take care of wounded American heroes who have sacrificed so much for this country. Finally a single dose of sanity from an insane administration hell bent on the destruction of our country!

Bailouts and mega spending are coming back to roost as the irresponsible administration of Barack Obama just keeps on rolling.

YoU cAn'T mAkE tHiS sTuFf Up - MILWAUKEE — Two robbers leaving a Milwaukee jewelry store with cash and gems didn’t get far with the loot — another group of thieves robbed them as the pair left the crime scene. Police Lt. Thomas Welch says a fight broke out in the street Wednesday before the groups got in vehicles and a chase ensued.

Welch says officers pulled over both vehicles and arrested four people, including the original two robbers, ages 40 and 31, and two men from the second group, of ages 22 and 27. All four are from Illinois. But he says police didn’t recover any cash or jewelry and are searching for more suspects.

YoU cAn'T mAkE tHiS sTuFf Up - ASHBURNHAM, Mass. — Senior citizens in a Massachusetts community are telling a town official to keep his hands off their doughnuts. Francis "Bill" Johnson is chairman of the advisory board in Ashburnham, a 90-minute drive northwest of Boston. He said at a Council on Aging meeting this week that spending money on doughnuts and pastries for the local Senior Center's morning coffee club encourages unhealthy eating habits in a population that already has health issues.

Council on Aging board member Lorna Fields says Johnson has "overstepped his boundaries." She says that many seniors won't eat "carrot sticks and stuff" and that healthier items such as grapes and cheese are available. A cream-filled doughnut covered with sprinkles has about 350 calories. But 67-year-old Senior Center regular Betty Bushee tells the Telegram & Gazette of Worcester that no one has the right to tell seniors what to eat.
Two things you don't mess with, telling your elders what they can and can't do and never take away their jelly doughnuts. - YoU cAn'T mAkE tHiS sTuFf Up

YoU cAn'T mAkE tHiS sTuFf Up - NEW YORK — A rare copy of the first comic book featuring Superman has sold for $317,200 in an Internet auction. The previous owner had bought it for less than a buck. It’s one of the highest prices ever paid for a comic book, a likely testament to the volume’s rarity and its excellent condition, said Stephen Fishler, co-owner of the auction site and its sister dealership, Metropolis Collectibles.

The winning bid for the 1938 edition of Action Comics No. 1, which features Superman lifting a car on its cover, was submitted Friday evening by John Dolmayan, drummer for the rock band System of a Down, according to managers at “This is one of the premier books you could collect,” he said in a telephone interview. “It’s considered the Holy Grail of comic books. I talked to my client, and we made the move.”

Only about 100 copies of Action Comics No. 1 are known to exist and they seldom come up for sale. The man who had previously owned the book purchased it in a secondhand store in the early 1950s when he was nine years old. He paid 35 cents.

Using the bailout situation with AIG, Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer from New York revealed the truth behind the tax plans of liberals. In case you have not heard AIG has issued $165 million dollars in bonuses to many of their employees while receiving bailout money from taxpayers under the TARP program.

This of course angers many in Washington and throughout the country as most consider this an abuse of money that should not have been used as bailout to an entity that failed to use sound business practices. Plain and simple bailout rewards failure.

While the millions in bonuses anger many, Democrats are attempting to use this situation to press forward with tax programs that endanger all Americans and not just those who have received the bonuses. Schumer stated on the Senate floor that if the individuals did not return the bonus that legislation will be put forth to tax the bonuses at 100%.

Now to many who are angered by this it may sound like an bold and brave idea, but in actuality if Democrats are allowed to get away with this it opens the door to a flood gate of similar taxes for any reason that liberals deem a detriment to the American people.

Using the AIG situation as the catalyst to 100% taxation for most any entity that Democrats wish to vilify as unfair or un -American. FDR attempted this in the 1930's. $25 thousand dollars was considered a high income at the time and FDR actually proposed to the Congress that all income above $ 25 K be taxed at 100%. Thankfully the Senate Republicans defeated the measure and FDR did not try it again.

If Democrats are allowed to write legislation to tax any income at 100% you can bet your bottom dollar that it will hold provisions allowing them to use this taxation anytime they see fit and not just with the AIG bonuses. Regardless of how this may anger Americans, allowing the Democrats in Congress this type of free hand is a dangerous precedence and should not be allowed to happen.

Since Obama took office both he and his liberal cronies have used the economic crises as a reason to push through excessive spending, massive government expansion and socialist programs that thus far have been unchecked because of the scare tactics used to gain support for the largest transfer of power to the federal government in history.

And now Schumer and his fellow liberal Democrats are attempting to hide their failings at scrutiny with the bailout money and providing them a catalyst to tax anything at 100% whenever liberals decide it is a detriment to their agenda. Dangerous for Americans and dangerous for America.

Yes you read the title correctly. Barack Obama, in order to raise and estimated $540 million dollars to help pay for his socialist agenda is changing the way that wounded soldiers who have been injured or disabled are charged for Veterans Services.

Instead of continuing the honorable system of caring for disabled and wounded veterans through VA benefits, Obama is pushing through a plan that will require wounded and disabled vets to use private insurance to reimburse the VA for expenses related to their disability or injuries. So according to Barack Obama, a soldier who is wounded in battle and becomes disabled or injured because of that wound no longer is to be taken care of by the country who asked this brave American to sacrifice in service for our country.

What happened to the time honored idea that ANYONE who serves this nation and because of that service is wounded, injured and/or disabled because of that service DESERVES to be taken care of out of a profound gratitude for the sacrifice and service in the defense of this country ?

Obviously Obama could care less about our military and the brave men and women whose sacrifice made it possible for someone like him to become President. This is the lowest and most despicable move made by any President and personally I consider this action a crime against the brave men and women who serve this country through their military service.

Commander David K. Rehbein of The American Legion met personally with Obama concerning this despicable plan and stated that Obama refused to listen to his arguments about the moral and government avowed obligations to veterans that this plan would compromise. In fact the only reason Obama met with Commander Rehbein was to try and solicit the SUPPORT of the American Legion for this disgusting plan. Support that the Commander stated Obama will NEVER receive.

What's next an across the board pay cut for military personnel in order to pay for Obama's nationalizing of health care ? Or maybe he will charge military personnel for the use of military aircraft to arrive at their post when sent to battle, in order to pay for Nancy Pelosi's use of military aircraft for she and her cronies to party in San Francisco.

In a letter of protest against the plan Commander Rehbein stated, " There is simply no logical explanation for billing a veteran's personal insurance for care that the VA has a responsibility to provide. While we understand the fiscal difficulties this country faces right now, placing the burden of those fiscal problems on the men and women who have already sacrificed a great deal for this country is unconscionable."

Is Obama as Commander in Chief, (I gag each time I think of this guy as CIC), willing to give up his government medical coverage to help raise money for his socialist agenda ? Of course not. This one move alone especially coming from the CIC shows how little respect and in fact an actual disdain that Obama has for those who are willing to sacrifice for this country.

As Commander in Chief he is responsible for the care and actions of the military and to neglect our veterans in this despicable way is a crime against the brave American heroes who fall under the command of the CIC. Personally I see this as a high crime and misdemeanor and as such an impeachable offense. A field commander who would sacrifice the well being of his troops would face a courts marshal for this type of offense and so should Obama then removed from office!

"I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical." Thomas Jefferson to James Madison

When our Founders gathered in Philadelphia in 1776 declaring Independence and then again in 1787 to establish the Constitution there were two basic premises that were created for The United States that had not existed before in any country and to this day still exist only in our beloved land.

The premise that all men have the right as endowed by our Creator to be free and that true freedom in ones country comes through the necessity that government is answerable and under the direct power and will of a free people. A free people who by the will of the people establish and decide what direction and how this free nation is governed.

I have stated in previous postings that the first three words of our Constitution, "We the people," were not placed in this most precious of documents by James Madison because they had a profound poetic nature but because found in those three words is the very foundational principle in which this country was created and the very principle that has governed and kept our nation strong and free throughout our history.

We have been blessed with the greatest leaders that the world has ever known. From Washington to Lincoln to Reagan, The United States has had the greatest men and women in world history working for and leading this land of the free. But their greatness did not just come from personal attributes alone. Much of their greatness and the reasons that history considers them great is found in the fact that they were part of a nation whose, "grand experiment," of freedom has stood the test of time and still stands today as it has though history as a beacon of free men and women whose destiny comes by the will of a free people.

Yet this premise of freedom by the will of the people that found its birth through the hardship of Revolution and the will of free men establishing it into law by our Constitution has been slowly whittled away over the years until we find our self today at the crossroads of the possible end of a free Republic of, by, and for the people and the establishment of a government empowered society whose citizenry are slaves to an all powerful government though dependency on that same government.

This move away from a free Republic by the will of the people as established by our Constitution has not happened overnight nor just by the extreme actions taken in the last weeks by the current administration. It has been deteriorating over the course of years as government has grown and through that growth much of the power of a free people has given way to an ever growing and more encompassing government bureaucracy that is stealing the power and will of the people and establishing a monster through government whose power and influence on our rights and will is changing the premise of rule by the free will of the people into government rule through intervention in all aspects of American life.

So much so that, through a continual dumbing down process a large number of Americans, dare I say maybe even a majority do not understand what the true premise of freedom by the strong will of a free people actually is and many believe that they can only find, "freedom," when government provides the answer or the means to live and work in our country. Many simply do not know that government and those within it answer to us and not we to them.

The United States has not given up true freedom because leaders have actually taken it away from us but rather because the people have by their own lack of understanding of where our freedom comes from and in whom the power of our nation truly lies have allowed it to gradually transfer from the will and strength of free Americans to an all encompassing and over burdensome government.

Like many of you I found myself terribly disappointed by the election of Barack Obama for several reasons and none of them had to do with his ethnicity. In fact his ethnicity is about the only reason that I , as an American, am grateful for his being President because it proves that we have overcome a great injustice that has haunted this nation for most of our history and that all people regardless of ethnicity, parentage or background can achieve, even the highest office on this land.

My disappointment is found in the policy of Obama and the direction that his policy is promised to and since taking office has already begun to take this nation. A direction that is contrary to our Constitution and the foundational principles of freedom from government and strength through the will of the people.

But I am discovering that the very policy that I deem as socialistic in nature in which I have been greatly disappointed and aggravated, which is escalating a trend in the direction of this country that has been taking place for years, may very well become the catalyst that will finally bring about a new American Revolution which may return our nation to a Republic governed only by the true will of the people through free Constitutional principles.

There is cropping up in this country from the grassroots a movement that is disgusted with government and this take over of power that has been continued and escalated by Obama policy which is taking the shape of a Revolution. Not by force or the might of weaponry and armies but by the will of the people realizing finally that this is our country and we are no longer going to stand for leaders and government to dictate to us who we are and how we live in our freedom.

Glenn Beck, a nationally syndicated conservative talk show host has begun the, "912 project." A movement that is gaining momentum so rapidly that the website cannot match demand. A movement whose numbers are already in the millions. We are witnessing ,"tea parties, " taking place as a result of comments made weeks ago by a very aggravated reporter who expressed his disgust at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange by calling for today's equivalent of the Boston Tea Party and without creating an actual organization disgusted Americans are holding Tea Parties all over the nation.

In fact an Internet e-mail movement is catching on by storm in which a Tea Party will be held in July where aggravated Americans will mail, (yes we still have a Postal Service), a tea bag to Obama, our District House Representative and both Senators protesting the massive government spending and influence in our lives. Can you imagine the impact that millions of tea bags showing up at the White House and on Capital Hill sent my millions of mad American demanding that we take our country back can have in expressing our anger ?

This is Revolution my friends and Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Adams and the rest of our Founding Fathers would not only approve but were they alive today be among those participating in this movement to return America to the people. This Revolution is long overdue and is necessary to prove to Obama and those in Washington that we are tired of government. We are tired of the deterioration of our freedoms.

That we believe that the Constitution is law and that law comes from and belongs to, "We the people," and NOT the government. A Revolution through the strength and will of a free people who will no longer bow to government. Who like our Founders understand that true freedom comes from our Creator and is ONLY found through a free people who are governed by the will and consent of the people.

A free people who demand that government answer to us and that the leaders have no right nor authority to dictate to us or demand from us anything unless we specifically allow them the authority and then ONLY if it is within the law and Constitutional principles of freedom from a free people.

My fellow Americans, the Revolution has started and it is time that ,"We the people," take back our country. Time that," We the people," demand that those we have hired to work in Washington or state and local governments stop demanding of us and start listening to us. This is who we are as a country and what we believe as Americans. It is why we were founded and the foundation in which this nation has grown upon and the very premise in which America has found her greatness. Stand up Americans and breath the freedom of Revolution and let us together take back this land that we all love !

President Ronald Reagan first told us what, "yes we can," means. We as Americans can recover without the oppression of government, without massive programs and spending and without socializing American life and ending American freedom by creating an enslaved dependancy on government to solve all of our problems.

Reagan believed in America. But he also beleived in the American people to rise above any crisis and not using the crisis to force government upon the people as is happening with the current administration.

During the campaign Barack Obama stated that he thought that Ronald Reagan, "changed the trajectory of America," because America was ready after the,"excesses of the sixties and seventies where government had grown and grown," and tapped into what the people wanted. It is time to follow the Reagan example Mr. Obama and remember as President Reagan said,"government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem."

Larger deficits than all other President's COMBINED. Barack Obama, change we can believe in.

This is one City Council Meeting where Green House Gases were the agenda. (snagged from Mikes America.) - YoU cAn'T mAkE tHiS sTuFf Up

First Obama tries to re-write the Constitution. Now through his socialist agenda telling everyone that his socialist programs which create slave dependency on the government are inalienable rights.

YoU cAn'T mAkE tHiS sTuFf Up - EASTON, Pa. — A man accused of driving drunk says Pennsylvania courts have no jurisdiction over him because he's his own country. After seeing the paperwork that 44-year-old Scott Allan Witmer filed with the court claiming sovereignty, a Northampton County judge said Tuesday he cannot be released from jail until he gets a mental exam.

Witmer, who represented himself, said he believes police lack jurisdiction to pull him over. As he said in court: "I live inside myself, not in Pennsylvania." He said there is no victim in the crime and asked to go to trial.

Hmmm wonder why this guy would need a mental exam. Hey maybe Obama could nominate him for some staff position. He'd fit right in ! - YoU cAn'T mAkE tHiS sTuFf Up

Moderate Taliban ? Yeah the moderates only want to kill most Americans instead of all of us.

YoU cAn'T mAkE tHiS sTuFf Up - HARRISBURG, Pa. — Pennsylvania liquor store clerks need to be more bubbly when they’re selling Champagne. The state’s Liquor Control Board is spending more than $173,000 to try to make workers friendlier and more well-mannered at the nearly 650 stores it operates. The board says it wants to make sure clerks are saying “hello,” “thank you” and “come again” to customers shopping for wine and spirits.

It has hired Pittsburgh-based consulting firm Solutions 21 to help coach store managers so they can instruct their clerks on issues such as how to greet customers and where to stand. Training begins this month. Harrisburg good-government activist Eric Epstein calls the idea “a demented interpretation of happy hour.” He says it’s “a sad state of affairs when you have to train people to be kind and courteous.”

Sounds like Pennsylvania is taking a page from Washington. This program is right out of the Obama play book. SHEESH ! - YoU cAn'T mAkE tHiS sTuFf Up

Their even talking about putting a computer screen on Obama's podiums now so the coaching he's getting from back stage won't be as obvious as the Teleprompters. If this were President Bush the press would have a field day with it.

The $410 billion dollar Omnibus bill containing 9000 earmarks passed the final Senate hurdle and will now make its way to the Oval Office for Obama to sign. This pork filled bill with some of the most irresponsible and stupid spending on record is also backed by some of the most hypocritical Representatives from BOTH parties.

The hypocrisy over this bill covers two Branches of the government. Obama, who pledged that he would not sign any bill containing earmarks, once again breaks that pledge. First he signed the earmark laden socialist spending bill, which was falsely called a, "stimulus package," now he has stated that he will sign the porkulus Omnibus bill claiming his reasoning behind it was that the bill was started BEFORE he took office. Regardless it will still be HIS signature that makes the bill law.

No one is immune from the hypocrisy found in connection with this bill. Republicans are railing at Democrats about the pork that reeks in this bill while a majority in the House actually have one or more pork projects contained in the very legislation they are screaming about. In fact 139 of the of the 178 GOP House Representatives have tagged this bill with their pet projects.

Republican House Minority Leader John Boehner late last week announced a stop gap measure that would hold spending at the federal level to 2008 figures which would negate the 8% across the board increase in the Omnibus bill and all 9000 earmarks. With the Senate fighting over the bill it looked like the Boehner plan would become reality especially since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stated that if the Senate did not pass it by Tuesday she would be forced to accept the GOP plan.

But pork won out in the Senate and the hypocrisy of both parties prevailed as the bill passed and now waits Obama's signature. All the while from the White House to Capitol Hill both the President, Senators and Representatives have been crying about wasteful government spending. But when the rubber hits the road and they have a prime opportunity to curb the very waste they all rail about not only do they not take the opportunity but attempt to justify their hypocrisy with lame excuses like Obama's, "the bill started before I took office, " to many Congressional members saying they would remove their pork if everyone else does.

Truly the children are in charge because both lame excuses sound like a child saying to their parent, " but Mom all the kids are doing it." Or , " Dad, it's not my fault because HE did it first!" Obama and the Democrats promised change and as usual nothing changes. The GOP when in charge also promised change and the only change they made was abandoning long standing GOP fiscal principles of less government and less spending and becoming like big government and big spending Democrats.

And it looks like while the Dems are in charge, when it comes to pork, most on the GOP side of the isle will fall in lock step with their liberal counterparts. This is one of the very reasons why I have yet to renew my GOP membership for 2009. While I believe that Michael Steele plans to renew the RNC and restore conservative principles within the party, until I start seeing results that satisfy me I will not give them my support.

There have been signs of progress but the involvement of most of the House members in the ridiculous porkulus bill negates most of the favorable gains the the GOP has made in the lase few weeks. As far as Obama's hypocrisy, this is becoming par for the course with the President who promised change and has yet to bring any except changing the deficit form bad to ridiculous.

Frankly I am totally disgusted with the whole lot and unless a complete shake up takes place in 2010 placing truly responsible Representatives in Congress who then can hold an irresponsible President accountable, our ship of state will continue to sink with the Captain and his crew playing poker while the passengers drown!

"We got your money, we got the power, now it's PARTY TIME !"

Today marks day 50 of the Obama administration, ( I know it seems like 50 years). With each day that has passed since January 20, the messiah has painted gloom and doom and today looks to be no different. It is all rather depressing isn't it ?

Well rather than post about the depressive spending, bailouts and gloom being dished out by Obama and company, today's post is given to hopefully inspire laughter or at least a chuckle to relieve some of the stress.

Abraham Lincoln was once asked why he joked so much and his response was, "I laugh because I must not cry." He also once said about laughter, "I have always believed that a good laugh was good for both the mental and physical digestion."

So in the spirit of Abraham Lincoln I offer this post for the health of your, "mental and physical digestion !"

Since taking office, Barack Obama has taken many actions which are in stark disagreement with a great deal of Americans. From economic to moral issues Obama has given executive orders and/or lobbied for and seen passed legislation that has created deficits that have surpassed every administration in our history and there is no end in sight.

In speeches he has created gloom and doom scenarios which compound the fear that is already permeating in the country. And his reasoning in creating this fear is to scare Americans into supporting his ideas, his plans and his spending. When the least amount of questioning begins to appear, Obama or his staffers change the direction of the conversation.

That change of direction in itself is cause for great concern when is comes to one of our greatest and sometimes most misunderstood freedoms. The freedom of speech which is not only one of our first freedoms as written in the Bill of Rights, but it is also one of our most fundamental and important freedoms which makes this country stand above all others in history.

Many liberals when faced with the accusation that Barack Obama's agenda is socialist in nature and his actions are threatening our freedom always ask, "what freedoms are threatened ?" My answer for one is the freedom of speech.

Whenever any disagreement with Obama's agenda , his spending, his executive orders, his rhetoric is expressed, those in disagreement are considered, "unpatriotic, un-American," or, "wanting the country to fail." Especially when stating that one does not want the country to fail but the agenda of the President, those with this opposing view to Obama are crucified as hate mongers who want America to fail.

Opposing a Presidents or any other politicians agenda or plan is one of the most basic freedoms that has been present in this country since its birth. But opposing Obama's agenda is considered by his supporters and the media as wanting the country to fail and as such un-American.

A great deal of this has to do with the hype that surrounds Obama. Most who support him and especially those who have supported him blindly without knowing anything about his radical past or researched what little there has been to find about him, believe that he can do no wrong and have an almost worshipful mentality toward Obama.

But there is also an equal problem that once again exposes itself when one speaks out against Obama's agenda and is labeled as one who wants the country to fail. The recent flak concerning Rush Limbaugh highlights this and also exposes the danger accompanied with the accusation of wanting the country to fail if one does not support Obama.

There seems to be a concentrated effort within the administration and many within the media to quell all dissent when it concerns Obama and his agenda by smearing dissenters with the stigma of wanting the country to fail. The freedom to dissent our government is one of our most cherished and basic freedoms of speech, yet when it is used against Obama a stigma of hate and un-Americanism is hung around the neck of the dissenter.

Freedom of speech as defined by our Founders is NOT the freedom to place a crucifix in a jar of urine and claim free speech rights. Our Founders considered free speech a much more cherished freedom than just the freedom of artistic expression regardless of how tasteless that expression is.

True freedom of speech as defined by our Founders is the basic right to dissent with our government without the fear of recrimination, labels or legal action because of that dissent. Before we became a Nation and were still colonies subject to British rule, whenever there was dissent within the Colonies against the policy of the Crown or the oppressive laws handed down by the Parliament on behalf of the Crown, Colonists were threatened with arrest, military intervention and confiscation of property. In fact each of these threats were actually carried out during the fledgling years before Independence was declared and during the Revolution.

As such when the Framers of the Constitution began compiling the form of government and establishing the freedoms which would exist by law as a result of that government the freedom of dissent with that government was the foremost reason for the inclusion of freedom of speech in the First Amendment of the Constitution.

The freedom to dissent without fear of being arrested, legal ramifications or being labeled by anyone because of that dissent. While there have been no threats of arrest or legalities yet concerning the disagreement with Obama's agenda the labels have begun and I ask you is the rest soon to follow ? Will being considered wanting the country to fail because we disagree with the President, soon become more than just an un-American label though legislation that takes the,"Fairness Doctrine," to the next level ?

There are some within Congress on the left who are already hinting at this by disguising the fairness doctrine with other wording since this particular legislation is so well known. Will dissension against Obama policy become the quelling of free speech, and the gradual elimination of one of our most precious and basic freedoms ?

One of the most dangerous aspects of a socialistic government is the fact that it can create, because of an all powerful and all encompassing government a tyrannical leadership which quells initiative, production and dissent of it citizenry. Is this where America is heading ? Those who support Obama scoff at we who call his agenda socialism.

Yet his increasing of government spending to unprecedented levels, government intervention and partial if not complete control over business and environmental policies that force Americans to adhere to certain, "changes," in the way that we live in order to comply with Obama's environmental policy are signs of his socialism.

Not to mention the massive expansion of the welfare state forcing a greater dependency on government creating a bureaucratic governmental slavery to citizens with lesser means at the expense of those with greater means. This is basic socialism no matter how one explains it or tries to defend it. And those who speak out against it are labeled as un-American, wanting the country to fail.

Dissension with what we as Americans believe is wrong for our country is not only very American but when we believe that policy being implemented by a President or Congress that will cause our country to fail is taking place it is our Constitutional responsibility to speak out against it with every means available to us as Americans.

Socialism is unconstitutional for America. It is dangerous to our freedoms and it is in direct contrast to the free principles and fundamentals that has sustained this country since our birth. YES, I want Obama's agenda to fail. Yes I want a free market and free speech America. Yes, I want my country to succeed, but in continuance with the sound and tested Constitutional foundation and principles we have cherished and lived by for more that 200 years.

We are a land created for the people not the government. We are a land where the people are the voice and power of the Nation not the government. We are a land where those within government are answerable and accountable to the people and not the reverse. We are a nation of freedom loving and living individuals who do not bow nor bend to an oppressive socialistic government regardless of who the President or the party in power is. And I for one will fight to keep it that way. That my friends is American!

If Ronald Reagan were still alive today I believe we would here his famous line from the Carter debate when then candidate Reagan in highlighting Carter's exaggerations looked at Carter and said, "there you go again." Only this time the witty remark would be directed toward Barack Obama.

"There he goes again." Using fear and exaggerated figures to scare Americans into buying into his agenda and and no one in the media calls him on it to his face. During remarks made at the start of his, Health Care Conference, Obama stated without blinking an eye that due to health care costs someone in The United States goes bankrupt every 30 seconds.

A fellow blogger at Judging Truth ran the numbers on this fear tactic by the ever fear mongering Barack Obama. With one health care related bankruptcy, according to the messiah, every 30 seconds the total would be 1, 051, 200 per year. The total number of bankruptcies in 2008 were 1, 086, 130. Which equates to 98. 8 % of all US bankruptcies, according to Obama's figures, being caused by health care related expenses.

The actual percentage of bankruptcies that were related to health care expenses was actually around 5%, which totals roughly 54, 300 filings. Breaking it down further this number equals to 0.026th of a bankruptcy every 30 seconds. A far cry from the figures given by the great fear mongerer.

But why should pushing his health care dollars be any different from the trillions of new and excessive spending that he has already pushed through. In every case he has a sob story or a catastrophe story, or a story with twisted and/or extremely exaggerated figures designed to scare the living daylights out of everyone. Then he uses this fear to get his way and spend, spend , spend.

At a time when one of the primary duties of any President is to promote confidence and quell fear so that Americans and especially all segments of the economy can get a little boost, Obama is using fear tactics and Armageddon scenarios to make his case. The result is no confidence in the economy nor his agenda, (not that the agenda promotes any confidence), and every financial entity is afraid to make any type of move because the President has warned of catastrophic results if his ideas are not quickly implemented.

Even his mentor Franklin Roosevelt once stated that, "we have nothing to fear but fear itself." Obama believes that the more fear he creates the better he can get his way and his agenda without much opposition. At every opportunity he uses fear. Nearly every sound bite taken from Obama's speeches or statements contain fear scenarios or speak of catastrophe.

And of course only he has the solution and anyone who disagrees with that solution is not a patriot or anti-American or wanting the country to fail. Disagreeing with a President DOES NOT mean that we want the country to fail, it means that we do not believe that WHAT that President is doing is good for the country.

When the Founders included Freedom of Speech in the Bill of Rights their true intent was not to allow disgusting displays that are claimed to be art. But rather the freedom to dissent with our government without fear of recrimination. To disagree with any aspect of government including those elected without fear of arrest or being placed on a watch list.

Creating fear is not and will not promote an atmosphere for recovery. Creating fear cannot turn a bad situation into a better one. Creating fear succeeds in only adding to adversity. Promoting quick and unstudied reactions or , "solutions." Creating fear grows the problem and never eases any situation. Creating fear causes panic. Which is precisely why I believe that Obama creates fear. Keeping a panic mode that forces acceptance of his American take over and socialist agenda.
