I Couldn't Have Said it Better...

...well maybe, but I couldn't have made a better video:

(if we had a flat tax, the rate should be 12% (see Arthur Laffer's The End of Prosperity), and then, with some BASIC deductions down to 10% or less)

Freedom of Speech...

...and Freedom of Religion, all balled up into one:

[an old lady sent me this]

My favorite parts:

"...others who have stood with us, have died at the hands of Socialists for the past two centuries."

"...I am tired of this experiment (socialism) and I hope you are tired of it too!"

E M E R G E N C Y . . .

So much is at steak stake this election, and now, its getting SERIOUS:


Industry group: bacon, pork shortage ‘unavoidable’

"Maybe the Mayans saw this coming in their end of the world prophesies. Those who pray at the temple of bacon could see their world crumbling to bacon bits this winter..."  Hey, freedom of religion...and it is an altar, not a temple.

"The trade group urged supermarkets to pay pig farmers a fair price for the meat to help cover the drought-related losses..."  This is not a 'fair price' matter, it is an access matter.  Access to bacon, we need to keep the flow of bacon...flowing. Comprehensive bacon reform!

"The surge came as farmers scaled down their herds as feeding the animals became increasingly expensive..." Was Obama for the surge, or against it?  What if we feed the pigs more bacon...whoa, I think I may have something there.

Will this be covered in the debates?  Is there polling on this?  I don't even know where the candidates stand on this - I seriously doubt Obama eats bacon.  Romney, probably has it sprinkled on things, but I don't see him picking it up with his hands.  Either way, I think it was William Howard Taft who said it best, "I like a little bacon, okay?"

Never Before...

George Washington did not have to 'run' or 'campaign' for President.  As we are a Republic, he was elected by the elected representatives of the states.  However, in the subsequent elections - he was slammed in the press (by a surrogate of Washington's Secretary of State, Thomas Jefferson) in an attempt to sway votes against him.  It didn't help, he won re-election with a unanimous vote.

However, the 'parties' that had formed, managed to fight over Vice President, and John Adams lost votes to George Clinton, Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr.

And things will never be the same...  

Two years later, United States Congressman Matthew Lyon was beaten on the floor of the Senate by Congressman Roger Griswold, with a wooden cane.  This, was after Lyon spat in Griswold's face.

In 1798, things had gotten so cantankerous, the 5th Congress of the United States passed the Alien and Sedition Acts, making it a federal crime to publish "false, scandalous, and malicious writing" against government officials.  However, FBI agents of the day, could not find a United States Attorney to prosecute it (...okay, that part I made up, but some things NEVER CHANGE!).

One of the first to be imprisoned under the new law was James Callender, who published pamphlets, the Richmond Examiner, and a book titled, The Prospect Before Us (available on eBay for $ 2012 dollars), in which he railed against John Adams and his party of Federalists.

Later that year, Congressman Lyon was arrested, tried, convicted, and spent time in jail, for criticizing our second President, John Adams.  (Lyon was essentially wrong, he published criticism of Adam's policy towards France, but either way - apparently our Founding Fathers had not heard of the 1st Amendment).  Lyon also published a newspaper, The Scourge of Aristocracy and Repository of Important Political Truth (a lot of the good names of newspapers were already taken).

Yadda, yadda, yadda...and we find ourselves in the election of 1800.  Adams vs Jefferson.

You think things today are bad?

Jefferson won, John Adams never again participated in national politics (somebody please send this link to Carter and Clinton), Alexander Hamilton was shot, and his murderer, Vice President Aaron Burr, was later tried for Treason, but charges were dropped by a meddling Supreme Court.

The Left does seem to be taking us in the wrong direction...but not exactly uncharted waters.

It Doesn't Matter...

As Kirsten Powers (Democrat) pointed out on Fox News, if the Main Stream Media doesn't put it out, and then it doesn't get picked up by the local news will have NO EFFECT on November 6, 2012.


We on the Right, know the entire Obama story is a facade, as are his slogans (Change?), and his promises (to reduce the national debt), etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.

But what about the people in the COMMUNITIES that Obama ORGANIZED?  At the risk of sounding harsh, I believe that Barack, Valerie al, get rich by keeping the rats in the trap.  How can the old ladies, who still live and work in the projects, think that he helped anybody but himself?


They are STILL THERE, in the projects.  How many who lived there, in public housing, made it out? How many of their children made it out?

Is it a great moment for them, for Obama to become President, and get them more food stamps, more job training, easier welfare checks?  Isn't the goal, to get actual jobs, and move out? To improve their lives? The unemployment rate for blacks in Chicago in the 90's was estimated at a median of 18.2%, in 2011 it was reported to be 21.4%...with people 16 to 30 years old, its over 50%.

With a track record like that, who wouldn't want Obama elected President?  Except blacks living in Chicago!

But give the guy a chance, see how he helps.

...and here we are, four years later.  How's it working for them?

In 2011, they got Obama's man, Rahm Emanuel, as their mayor - how's it working for them?

The Poor People Obama Left Behind

I've worked to put "offenders" in prison.  They earn it, and they are a scourge to their own society.  But, listen to the men in the video - GIVE THEM A CHANCE to earn something different!

They don't want a handout, they don't want fake job training. They know, it is only because of their FAMILY that they aren't on the street now.

And the people who claim to be helping them, are actually keeping them from succeeding.    

Some, have known it all along...

Obama's Toughest Critics on the Left

But those are the ones that weren't invited to the party in D.C.  Those are the ones still stuck in inner city Chicago.

These are the ones that were invited to the party.

New Poll on Bullying...

Department of Justice Sues Gallup Polling Regarding Over Billing

NBC was sure to print that story...but they forgot to print this one:

"Internal emails between senior officials at The Gallup Organization, obtained by The Daily Caller, show senior Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod attempting to subtly intimidate the respected polling firm when its numbers were unfavorable to the president."

But that isn't all...this DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE claim may be Furious, just not Fast:

"The publicly available complaint shows the DOJ is relying solely on the allegations Lindley (former Gallup employee) is making to back its claims...."

"...They have 120 days to serve a complaint on us — so they might just hold off on service until the election passes,” the senior Gallup official said. “That way they prevent us from officially responding to their allegations, which might be damaging to the campaign.”

Holder spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler did not respond when asked by TheDC why the Justice Department has not yet served the complaint to Gallup."

Holder spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler - you mean the one who has been working with Media Matters to make sure the TAX EXEMPT outfit gets 'facts'? Wonder why she hasn't responded?

Hugging Trees...

Just as the political world approaches its peak, and my head is about to work life is about to get crazy busy (hopefully...if not, I may give up on trying to clean up the world), and so I took a little time to get away...

...I took Jonny Q with me.  The picture doesn't do the terrain justice, this was some serious decline...especially after 12 miles under our boots...I had to block out the face, the sheer terror would have scared you away!

A True Remembrance...

Who would have thought, that on the anniversary of 9/11, attacks on U.S. Embassy's in several Muslim countries...would be met first with an apology from the U.S., and then more soft talk from the President of the United States.  We are living in interesting times.

Our Ambassador is dead, our Embassy in Libya is destroyed (did they have time to secure things that needed to be secured, or does the Muslim now Brotherhood have our computers, our plans, etc?), and the Main Stream Media is most concerned that the man trying to be President, spoke before the President.

On 60 minutes on Sunday, President Obama will say that Mr. Romney has a problem speaking before he has all the facts (see "Beer Summit").  When in fact, Mr. Romney was correct in his words, and correct to say "its never to early" to condemn attacks on Americans.

Mr. President, they would not have dared to do this (or what comes next...) if they knew it was dangerous to do so.  Mr. President, didn't you see all that Bin Laden did in the 90's?  Don't you see that the governments of Libya, Egypt and the rest of the Middle East will see how you want them to treat our Embassies?

Years from now, will the books (eBooks?) tell about President Apology and how his ethnocentric view of the world cost the lives of Americans?  Worse yet, the story is not completely written.  When the Marines arrive, will they have food and money for Brotherhood, or will they have the dangerous end of an M16? is slowly becoming clear (where is the MSM on this?).  The Internet movie that nobody heard about, was a hoax, and a ruse.  The citizens of Libya, Yemen and Egypt did not, on 9/11, all of a sudden get upset over a movie no American ever heard of, and decide to protest the American Embassies.  The Islamists coordinated this, just like they did on THE 9/11.  There is even conspiracy talk that the Coptic Christians of Egypt funded this to get America involved in their war, since it is the SAME enemy.  Either way, it boils down to the simple fact that we were attacked again, and again the wrong man is at the helm of our Ship of State. The only reason their attack is so small, is because we beat the hell out of them around the globe the last time...

Lies, Damn Lies, and Democrats...

A Failed Governor Talks Up a Failed President

"...But even more bizarre than Granholm’s convention appearance was that she was invited to make one in the first place. She was arguably the worst governor of her time who, during her eight-year term, took Michigan’s teetering economy into her firm hands and gave it a good, hard push off the cliff...

...And the loss of dignity is just a small price to pay for a future Cabinet position."

The Democrats Try to Hide the Left...

Oops.  Villaraigosa is an idiot, he is trying to become the next not answering any question directly, and just spouting odd talking points.  He was clearly caught off guard:

Who is in the building at this time?  The base.  Who else would be in the convention hall, wearing their t-shirts at this time?  Hopefully enough "Democrats" see what has happened to their party.

They won't.

I'd Like To See That....

I would like to see this President, and his Attorney General, try to prosecute the former Navy SEAL, for revealing classified information.

I have seen first hand, what revealing SECRETS can do.  I have seen it dismantle individual investigations, and I have seen it change the way US law enforcement works.  Sometimes it is done inadvertently, sometimes its done on purpose - and sometimes its hard to tell which is worse...

I don't know what is in the book, only what I have heard.  The timing of the book is huge.  Some think it hurts the President (his account isn't exactly accurate, the troops don't like him, etc.), some think it will help (he was President when we got him, and people are talking about that). Can't say I'm happy about the book coming out.  I definitely will read it, maybe even pay for it.  I have read so many SEAL books, I feel like I went through BUD/S twice...without all the running, and sand and stuff.  Have nothing but good wishes for the author, hope he cashed in, and hope he spreads the wealth. 

But facts are stubborn things:

This ain't the first SEAL to write a book recently, so he's probably not revealing anything there.

Oh, and THE ADMINISTRATION ALREADY LEAKED this and so much more, they have already provided the defense for Mr. Bissonnette, er, Mr. Owen.

So good luck with that...

Happy Socialist Day!

Before we collectively sing...a note on more bad change:

This is what Labor Day meant to me:

...and now

Saturday, September 1, 2012


I was not a Romney guy.  In fact, none of my top five even ran.  But, I recognize that some in my top five, might not have even won the nomination, let alone beat President Kardashian.

I knew Mitt Romney was successful, and I believed he would do a good job.  As a libertarian leaning conservative, I was concerned that he wasn't ideologically a conservative, and that when he was, it was because he was a realist - and conservative ideas work.

Then I watched the convention.  I almost watched the entire thing, flipping from CSPAN to MSNBC to see what the Socialists were saying, and when I couldn't take it any longer, I flipped to Fox Business News, then back to CSPAN.

I was impressed with the way the speeches lined up.  There were some duds (hello Mitch McConnell).  But the stars did come out...Rand Paul, Nikki Haley, Chris Christie, Artur Davis, Mia Love, Susana Martinez, Condoleezza Rice, Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan.

They were all great speeches.  I knew nothing about Susana Martinez or Mia Love - what great arguments they made for America, and for the Republican party!  Chris Christie is not a conservative, but he is doing a good job in a tough state - something maybe nobody else could do. Condoleezza Rice came out of her shell - and the sky is the limit for her.  After Ryan's speech, Socialist Lawrence O'Donnell (a hate spewer paid heavily by NBC) said he actually feared for the Democrat's chances.

And then came Mitt.  Even my little sister was not excited to hear the nominee, and feared he would be 'plastic,' and that he would be anticlimactic after Rubio.  I was afraid too.

The way the convention speakers led up to him, the way they did the 'this is your life Mitt' earlier in the evening, "introducing us to the real Mitt," worked.  Mitt Romney is a great man, and has a chance, if elected, to be a great President.  He gave a great speech. After his speech, I felt optimistic about the election for the first time in a long time.

The election will be about the economy, stupid.  So while the Dem's forget this (and try to get the electorate to), the Republicans need to stay focused.  But its not just the facts, and the economics, and the finances - it is about the fundamental cause of the problems with our economy, the vision and actions of our leaders, who always seem to forget what made America the exception.

...and that, is what Romney and Co. were talking about all last week.
