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.

Ignorance is Bliss, (in some cases)

I guess in some cases that ignorance is bliss. This video is  about 5 minutes long but says so much about the so called enlightened,progressive party of Obama. Especially the one who says “whatever my President wants, I’ll support” that is truly frightening. That is the same type of thinking that gets anybody in trouble. “Just following orders” etc, etc–you know where unthinking and blind loyalty leads.

Those same non-thinking fools idiots Kool-aid drinkers  leftists then buy into this line of BS: “we all belong to the Government”.  What! Wait, I don’t belong to the government, I use the government when necessary, but the government belongs to me. For without the producers paying taxes there would be no government. Dummies!

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.

Not only is Obama incompetent, so’s his whole regime.

Here’s one of the problems I have with Mr. Obama: I knew he was the least qualified in experience to be the most powerful executive in the world. I at least hoped he would surround himself with competent advisors and Cabinet members.  Well, that doesn’t seem to have worked out very well.

Here are some of his choices for “Czars”, remember we are paying for these folks:

 

Richard Holbrooke

Afghanistan Czar

Ultra liberal anti gun former Gov. of New Mexico. Pro Abortion and legal drug use. Dissolve the 2nd Amendment

Ed Montgomery

Auto recovery Czar

Black radical, anti- business activist.  Pro Affirmative Action and Job Preference for blacks. Univ of Maryland Business School Dean teaches US business has caused world poverty. ACORN board member. Communist DuBois Club member.

Lynn Rosenthal

Domestic Violence Czar

Director of the National Network to End Domestic Violence. Vicious anti male feminist. Supported male castration. Imagine that.

Cameron Davis

Great Lakes Czar

Chicago radical anti business environmentalist. Blames George Bush for “Poisoning the water that minorities have to drink.” No experience or training in water management. Former ACORN Board member (what does that tell us?)

Cass Sunstein

Regulatory Czar

Liberal activist judge believes free speech needs to be limited for the “common good”. Essentially against 1st amendment. Rules against personal freedoms many times -like private gun ownership and right to free speech. This guy has to be run out of Washington!!

Go here to see the full list: http://mishmashofmiscellanea.blogspot.com/2011/10/amrican-czarswho-thought-it-was-good.html

 

See a pattern? Yeah, they are all  left wing nut jobs and most are ignorant of their area of responsibility.

 

The problem with all this is these people make the rules that are then propagated to us lowly peons (for that is truly how this regime thinks of us) and unless there are court or legislative relief these rules or regulations will stand even after this regime is history. We’re so screwed.

Let us mention the department heads that have ravaged the rule of law-yeah I’m talking to you Eric Holder! The NLRB that wouldn’t “permit” Boeing to move part of their manufacturing to a right-to-work state because the unions were upset.  How about denying bondholder rights when the regime took over GM and Chrysler? Etc., etc.  This is the most corrupt administration I have lived through and I lived through LBJ and Nixon.

In a sane world, Holder and most of the other people in this regime would have already been indicted and on trial. I’m leaving out Obama, because then VP  Bite me Biden would be President, and he is incompetent.

We the people started a change in the 2010 elections with taking back the House, but since The Dear Leader this President is determined to get his way with executive orders and signing statements ( for which, as a candidate, Obama denounced  Bush), our majority is not doing much good, and don’t get me started on the lack of leadership in the House.  We have to continue  cleaning up this mess by getting rid of this regime. Then start rolling back the idiotic over- regulated, nanny state this country has become.

2012 is it folks. If The One Barack  Obama is re-elected I predict chaos, turmoil, and an end to the American dream. Maybe even an end to the United States.  Oh, I don’t think I’ll live long enough to see that, but my children probably will and for sure my grandchildren.  Because his re-election will ensure that the election in 2016 will be dominated by the over 50% of voters who get their sustenance from the dole. And when there is a majority of voters on the public teat, what do you think the odds are that those same voters will vote themselves off the public teat? About the same odds as Eric Holder and I going out for drinks.

The headline says “Not only is Obama incompetent, so’s his whole regime.” I’m thinking that might be misleading, because although I think he is in way over his head, his handlers have us right where they want us.

<end rant>
