Might get a room at the camp for this.

Again; not about GUNS it’s all about CONTROL. Any of you who think differently are either naive or willfully ignorant. I guess I should clarify: You may personally think that it’s about guns, but I’ll guarantee you that the regime does not. This out of control, Marxist, murderous, law-breaking administration actually doesn’t give a rat’s a** about guns or your children , just using this “crisis” as a means to either provoke, continue chaos or both, while getting in some more control regulations.

(this’ll probably put me down for a room in the camp 😉 )

Mourning in America

With apologies to President Reagan’s 1984 campaign.

When Hal Riney (who wrote and narrated the ad) said the words “Morning in America” he was giving voice to the idea that it was a new day dawning and things were  better, and they were. From the “malaise” of Carter’s America to the get-it-done attitude of Reagan’s America.

When I used the word “mourning” in the phrase, I intend it to mean exactly what you probably understand it to mean: Enter into a time of grief, for something great has died.

Of course the ones who will mourn are those who actually care about the America that was a shining city on a  hill. The light of hope to a dark and corrupt world. A place where one could actually aspire to whatever one wanted to do, and with enough talent and hard work achieve those aspirations.

Now it appears that the highest aspirations of a majority of voters is to live off the government dole or payroll. The Takers have taken over and now demand their due from the Makers.  As long as the takers don’t have to worry about anything more important than where to get their malt liquor and free phone they will be OK. Keep those SNAP cards and disability checks coming in and we won’t burn down the cities.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largess from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising them the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy…. The world’s great civilizations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependence; from dependence back again into bondage.” Alexander Tyler (ca.1770)  More here.

Got to hand it to the Liberals/Progressives/Commies, they have steadily worked the problem of how to take away the independence and freedom of Americans. It seems they have achieved their goals: A permanent class of dependent-on-the-gubmint people who vote. It started with the schools, and the unions, and the media. Once the civil service and the teachers were unionized, it was just a matter of keeping the effort moving FORWARD. And no, I’m not saying there was a vast conscious conspiracy, just groups of like minded fools idiots people who understood that to accomplish their goals this is the path to take.

This rant could go on for pages, but I’ll end it soon. I just want to say that my whole reason for wanting America to stay free is for my grandchildren. As selfish as that sounds it’s honest. My life on this mortal coil will end within a few years, but my grandchildren will have to live with massive debt or a total financial collapse. How could anyone want that reality for their loved ones? But with the re-election of obama, that is exactly the minimum future. It could get worse. I believe we missed the last exit to get off the road to destruction. Now we are motoring down that “Highway to Hell”.

“Bye,Bye Miss American Pie” RIP Lady Liberty and freedom. Goodbye Constitution, it was nice while it lasted. God have mercy on us.

You’re doing a heck of a job Barry!

“Where does America stand? You see when the friends or foes alike don’t know the answer to that question, unambiguously and clearly, the world is likely to be a more dangerous and chaotic place.” – Condoleeza Rice

Not that I’m any great shakes at prognostication, but anybody with any time living in Realville could have predicted some fiasco would happen after the jihadists took over. Back in Jan I wrote a short piece to that effect.

Dhimmi thinking: “Just sympathize with them and all will be well.”  Idiots.

Let’s see: A mob in Egypt storms our embassy, tears down our flag, raises a POS terrorist flag. Then in Libya a mob attacks our consulate in Benghazi and manages to kill our Ambassador and 3 staff members and the media (MSM) is saying it’s all over some poorly produced amateur YouTube video. Right. I’ve got some land and a bridge to sell you. Dummies

These attacks were planned and executed by direction of some leader; they were not spontaneous. Does the date 9/11 signify anything to the liberals? No, probably not. Obviously Dear Leader didn’t think it necessary to attend any intelligence meeting/briefings for a week before these attacks. Too busy going to fundraisers or playing golf. Putz!

The one on the left went on to become an effective leader of a nation, the one on the right just stayed a chump.

Meet with the leader of our strongest and most consistent ally in the middle east? Naw, can’t be bothered, but I’ll meet with the leader of Egypt and go on Letterman. Participate in ceremonies for 9/11? Naw, but I’ll do a radio interview with some no talent hip hop DJ. Poser!

  Can’t lose the chance to score some bucks!

Of course when Mr. Romney expresses his outrage on the attacks before Dear Leader has made his statement, the propaganda arm of the Democrat party the mainstream media jumps all over him asking why he (Romney) jumped the gun , and did he regret his statements. AYFKM  Really? That’s the important questions?  Romney was the only one making statements that looked and sounded like an adult. Schmucks!

So now the Won has decided to send more money to Egypt, but he’s not sure if they’re an Ally or enemy.  Echos of Jimmy Carter.

I guess Carter doesn’t have to worry about being the worst President in modern times, Obama has surpassed him.

And there’s more: I saw where our oh so effective Secretary of State was in Morocco saying Islam is a Great Religion. WTH. (It’s actually more of a political philosophy.) Some more of that progressive thinking, that Kumbaya-it-takes-a-village BS. How’s that all worked out for y’all?

“The gang that couldn’t shoot straight” is the perfect appellation for this cabal. Except that they have succeeded in wrecking the economy and making our enemies bolder. The kind of  thinking that this regime manifests is dangerous.

I really believe November is our last chance to start to reverse this mess, and no I don’t think this GOP ticket is the best we could have fielded, but it is what it is. If Oblamebush and the Zombie Rats Democrats are not roundly turned out, it’s going to get real ugly.

I’ll make another prediction: If Obama is defeated some cities will burn. It’s not a prediction I find any pleasure in making, but I think there are some people who will take an Obama defeat poorly to the point of violence. Look at the Rodney King verdict. And that was not near the status of Obama being elected, and then being rejected.

One more: There is usually an October surprise. Now this is just really winging it, but what if there is a crisis of some kind that requires a declaration of a National Emergency? Banking crisis, real hot war in a large region?- doesn’t matter what it is, maybe even a crisis manufactured? All that has to happen is a declaration and “we will have to put off the elections until we get this crisis under control”. There are any number of standing Executive Orders that allow the complete takeover of this nation or at least large enough chunks of it that the regime could easily be in power for a long time. I would make plans with a bias towards a little paranoia.

I’ll be working on the bunker if you need me.

A (re-)statement of questions.

This was from June of 2011. The questions are still relevant–they’ll always be relevant.

 

QOTD: “The [Sixth Circuit] majority [decision upholding Obamacare’s individual mandate] is ludicrous. It stated, “Virtually everyone will need health care services at some point, including, in the aggregate, those without health insurance.”

 

“All of us will need shelter. Should government control the residential housing market and compel individuals to buy approved housing?

 

All of us will need clothes. Should government control the clothing market and compel individuals to buy approved clothing?

 

All of us will need food. Should government control the food supply and compel individuals to buy only approved foods?

 

All of us will need transportation. Should government control all modes of transportation and compel individuals to buy only approved transportation services?

 

And, now that the Constitution has been shredded, where does this control over the individual end?

 

I’ll tell you where it ends: with the destruction of this Republic, by a fifth column called the cadaver of the Democrat Party, a once-proud and patriotic group that has been utterly subsumed by the maggots known as Marxists.” Doug Ross

 

(Emphasis above  is mine)

 

This is ONLY about the Federal Government getting more power; if you believe that a great lumbering bureaucracy cares about you, you’re delusional enough to vote for Obama. You’re delusional enough to believe that more spending will result in a lower debt, crazy enough to believe that if we are just nice to the Islamists that they will make nice with us. And probably in so much denial that you believe that what happens on American Idol/The Voice/Jersey Shores–whatever– is important   If you believe any of that, Please,please do not vote! You’re part of the problem. (Hey, if the Panthers can physically intimidate voters and get away with it, I can beg you not to vote)

 

Look at Europe, do you really want to go down that path? that way leads to Greece, Spain, etc. Nothing but shells of their former glory, with a large dependent class and unsustainable debt. The CBO estimates that by 2035 Americas debt service will take 200% of GDP to pay–Impossible! My prediction is we won’t last until 2035 if we don’t change our present direction NOW! and continue in 2012 with a sweeping out of the spenders (either party),drastically reduce spending (back to FY 2001 levels), lower taxes (or eliminate them and go with the Fair Tax) otherwise, say goodbye to our country as we know it. That would mean our children and grandchildren would be stuck with something that is hard for me to envision; a world with no where to go to escape the stifling,choking stench of Socialism/Marxism/oppressiveness. No place to escape to, to be able to enjoy individual liberty, freedom.

 

We have to get back to the Constitution. To the founding ideas. We have to desire freedom and liberty more than convenience and pleasure.

 

Pray for our country.

GM (Government Motors) taxed less than Buffet’s secretary.

Since Obama gave GM to his buddies at the UAW while screwing the  holders of GM bonds this is one of their rewards. Oh yeah, the regime is also giving at least $7500 tax credit to any fool that buys a Volt. Your tax dollars at work folks.

 

http://nlpc.org/stories/2012/02/16/gm-pays-less-tax-buffet%E2%80%99s-secretary-uaw-profits

 

This chart is out of date by about a +trillion dollars, but the trend is the same. How’s that Hope and Change working out for you?

I’ve read somewhere today that the folks with the silk panties at the State Department have advised all non-essential personnel to leave the embassy in Egypt. Lord, if we could get all non-essential personnel to leave D.C. permanently, we could go a long way toward solving our economic, and social problems. The same applies to the state governments.

I made sure I tagged some of the key words, so the DOJ goons could track me easier.  Sleep well my friends, because Big Brother is watching you.

Bigportant

A Facebook acquaintance’s  son made up a word: “Bigportant” (from a discussion re: BigPharma, BigGov,etc) Defintion: entity thinks it is Big and Important, or my 1st definition: largest player in a field, ie: ExxonMobil, Federal Government,  my 2nd definition: Unmitigated arrogance,conceit, self-importance, hubris, also see: narcissism.

I think the following quotes easily meet the son’s definition and my 2nd definition :

“Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth.” -Barack  Obama June 3, 2008

From “60 Minutes” Dec 11th 2011: He ( Obama) rejected questioner Steve Kroft’s suggestion that the public was judging him on his performance as president. “I’m being judged against the ideal, ‘Don’t judge me against the Almighty, judge me against the alternative.’”

“The issue here is not gonna be a list of accomplishments. As you said yourself, Steve, you know, I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president — with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln”. — Barack Obama  Source

Arrogance thy name is Obama.

End of message.

We have a Winner!

UPDATE. 01/02/11

A commenter pointed out that the ending debt of Bush 43 was around $11 trillion and now the current is around $15 trillion. Here’s another chart:

Does this make you feel better?  Not me.  If you really want to get depressed go here. And here.

My statement will stand: This is the most destructive cabal of an administration in my lifetime and I lived through the Carter years. Confession: I even voted for the peanut farmer. Bad mistake, I’ll have that stain on my conscience as long as I live.

ORIGINAL POST:

Can one person “break the bank?”  Yes. Yes, one person can:

h/t Mostlycajun.

It took 43 Administrations to get to 6.3 TRILLION! $. Mr. Sereto Obama beat it in one! What a guy, maybe he is The One.

Now of course he had lots of help from the Dems in Congress (remember they took over both houses in 2006), they stopped passing budgets in 2008 after Obama was elected, and have just been  doing continuing resolutions since, thereby adding to the baseline spending. Now if they do a budget they will have the “baseline” to work with, and they can “cut” spending and still increase the costs. “Cutting” spending in a baseline budget is only decreasing the rate of increase. BTW: Cutting the deficit doesn’t mean jack squat unless the deficit is cut to ZERO. If there is a deficit we still add that to the debt.

Unless there are true fiscal Conservatives elected this cycle, we are in the crapper. Some say it may be too late now, but I’m an optimist.

ANYONE who thinks we can sustain this  spending is living in denial, in fact may be the King of denial. I know, I know-there are a lot of people out there that think Obama is the greatest thing since _________ (you fill in the blank). That’s what so sad; the people who think that get to vote anyway.

Back to the bunker.
