OK…I give up!  How many more stupid things can be going on in our country at the same freakin’ time?

Here’s a brief list:

Benghazi

1 – Bengahzi – was a LONG time ago per Press Secretary Carney…however, NOT so long for the families of the murdered Americans I would bet.  If you expect the Obama administration to come clean on this or any other subject for that matter, you might as well get in the “Ice Water” line in HELL…..

Dont tread on my gun rights

2 – Gun Control Bill – Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) is DYING to get SOMETHING passed regarding gun control.  Hopefully he will just die off… But that’s one thing about our elected officials…  They NEVER give up on trying to destroy your Constitutional Rights!  If only they were so adamant about protecting the tenets that built our country…  Dream on I guess….

illegal immigration

3 – Immigration – Please, get it through your ridiculously swollen Senatorial and Congressional heads that IMMIGRATION is at the root of America’s problems in regard to terrorism!  Lack of border control, our apparent inability to keep track of NON-AMERICANS who enter our country and political correctness in REMOVING these people will eventually come back to bite us in our collective asses!  I do not believe for one second that the Federal Government and DHS cannot keep up with foreign students or immigrant workers and their comings and goings across our borders!  That’s a load of crap!  They simply choose not to.

don't tax me bro4 – Sales Tax for Internet Business

This little morsel for the state and federal coffers will slide right in while everyone no one is watching.  They say that internet businesses that do not collect sales tax are in unfair competition with traditional “brick and mortar” businesses.  If you plan to force internet businesses to collect and pay taxes to each state and locality while your traditional businesses only have to collect and pay their single state and locality taxes, this would be completely UNTRUE!  Call me an idiot, but your small business that sells on the internet could never afford the infrastructure to administer the tax accounting, collection and payment burden.  They will simply go out of business, thus exacerbating our economic problems, increasing unemployment and killing the American dream for thousands of hard working people.  Maybe that’s the whole idea…..

military prayer

5 – America’s Military and Faith

So my niece is forced to learn about the “peace loving” religion of Islam (no, Christianity is NOT discussed), but our soldiers are currently being told to hide their faith or be prosecuted by OUR OWN GOVERNMENT!  The level to which this makes no sense is astounding!  Which is why I have no doubt our government will continue in this vein.

6 – Foreign Aid – OK, this just KILLS me…  With the sequester budget cuts (laughable BS at BEST), daily attempts to increase taxes, rampant fraud in all branches of government programs, we ALSO have aid to foreign countries.  Not just to countries with which we are friendly, but to countries that would like to BLOW US UP!  We dole out about 50 BILLION dollars each YEAR!  Take a look at the numbers for just a few:

  • Afghanistan                       2.5 BILLIONmoney hole
  • Pakistan                            2.3 BILLION
  • Iraq                                    2.0 BILLION
  • Egypt                                 1.5 BILLION
  • Nigeria                              600 MILLION
  • West Bank / Gaza             440 MILLION
  • Lebanon                           167 MILLION
  • Ukraine                               04 MILLION
  • Russia                                52 MILLION     (Uh????)
  • Saudi Arabia                      10 THOUSAND    (WHAT??)

I honestly believe that 50 BILLION dollars would be MUCH better spent by sending each American a check for $160 and tell them to go out for dinner or a few drinks or pay a bill or two.  It would definitely garner the Federal Government more respect that it does from these ingrates.

obamacare

7 – Obamacare is LAW????

42% of people polled this week by The Kaiser Family Foundation did NOT know this….  Why am I not surprised?  That must have be the 42% of idiotic Americans that forgot to V O T E!!!!  You non-voting bastards get everything you deserve…..

The biggest problem is that there is SO MUCH more than just this going on today in our country.  It’s the Federal Government’s biggest and best domestic weapon:  The American WMD…Weapon of Mass Distraction!  Keep as many balls going in the air as possible, ‘cause we can’t watch them all!

I have to wash my hands now….just typing about the Federal Government makes me feel dirty…

Americans Simply Do It Better!

Posted: January 1, 2013 by G. Byron Barrett in Anti-Americanism, Our Government, Socialism / Marxism

Americans simply do it better……

Face it, we do.  We ROCK!  We KICK ASS!  We do EVERYTHING better than any other nation or people on the face of the earth.  Even if we do not come up with the initial idea, we take it, own it, run with it and make it the best that it can be!

THAT is our basic nature.

We better hope this is true!

Since America is rushing headlong over the fiscal cliff and straight into the waiting arms of socialism like so many of our allies, we better hope and pray that, as normal, we can do it better than they are doing it everywhere around the world.  Of course, how could we do a worse job at it than countries like Japan, Italy, Greece, France, Spain, etc…?

You might be thinking, “With debt to GDP ratios running in excess of 200% in some of these countries, how can you possibly screw up your economy any better than this”?

Well, just let the overachievers in the United States of America join the race!foam-finger

Like I said before, we might not come up with the initial idea, but we do have the historical reputation of snatching up the ball and running with it.

Where Japan is only at 228% of debt to GDP ratio, I am betting that the USA, under the omniscient leadership of Barack Obama and his minions, can FAR exceed even the wildest dreams of the Progressive (see Socialist) Democrat party.

I mean, simply because EVERY nation that has adopted a socialist form of government has FAILED, doesn’t mean that America will fail at it.  Come on guys!  Let’s give it a try!  You all know it’s only fair to the deadbeats!   Oops!  I mean…liberal… voters, who by 51% of the vote gave our current administration its sweeping Progressive mandate, to make this bold attempt at Socialism work!

It’s time that we did away with debt limits.  We need to increase the tax rates AND close the loopholes to increase Federal revenues.  We need MORE Federal spending, not less.  We must have income re-distribution in the name of fairness.  We have to expand our entitlement programs and make sure more money flows out of the pockets of the bad people who earned it and into the pockets of good Americans whose job it is to simply take.  We must endeavor, as a Nation, to level the playing field to the extent that everyone, regardless of ability or desire or intelligence, amasses no more and no less, than their fellow citizens.  We must make sure to staunch the flames of free expression, of innovation, of competition and make MEDIOCRITY the standard by which all citizens are judged.

Karl Marx may have said it best in his 1875 creed, ‘Critique of the Gotha Program’:

“In a higher phase of communist society, after the enslaving subordination of the individual to the division of labor, and therewith also the antithesis between mental and physical labor, has vanished; after labor has become not only a means of life but life’s prime want; after the productive forces have also increased with the all-around development of the individual, and all the springs of co-operative wealth flow more abundantly—only then can the narrow horizon of bourgeois right be crossed in its entirety and society inscribe on its banners: From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs!

Since Americans DO IT BETTER, what’s to make us, as citizens, think that we cannot make Socialism work too?  Surely our Federal government and our elected officials in Washington have OUR best interests at heart?  Surely our Federal government would NEVER consider overstepping their constitutional authority? Isn’t it true that the Federal government is here to protect us from ourselves???

In all seriousness, our Federal government has, over the last 100 years or so, managed to weasel its way into making decisions that it has NO mandate to do or authority over.  The State Governments have abdicated their authority to the Federal government and the people have, through their own apathy and ignorance, allowed this fiasco to occur.  Only by pulling our heads out of our own asses and forcing our State governments to take back their Constitutional authority, will this ever change and the United States of America once again truly be the Land of the Free.

If this does NOT happen, go ahead and take this flying leap off the fiscal cliff and embrace all the ramifications that this entails.  If we, as a Nation, are going to follow Europe and the rest of the world into Socialism, let’s make sure we go at it whole hog and as quickly and as hard as we possibly can.

Who knows?  Maybe Americans ARE better at everything….

My life has been consumed with personal matters and I have not spent time to write my thoughts on the many events that have happened and those that are happening now. 

Rather than reiterate what has already been said, I will refer you, my readers, to watch the last two weeks of Glenn Beck’s show.  The research, analysis and projections provided by Glenn, his team and his expert guests is unparalleled. 

Beck has discovered the keystone to what our world is experiencing and it is frightening. 

I realize that some of you may consider Mr. Beck a “nut job, kook, etc.” because he warns us of danger – danger that a lot of you refuse to see.  But, I have met this man.  He is humble and honest; he is a seeker of truth.  As he says, “don’t take [his] word…research it for yourself!”  I have and he has been spot on with his analysis. 

It angers me that politics, journalistic celebrity, and TV ratings seem to get in the way of truth, thus the whole picture of news.  It also angers me that America has produced at least 3 generations of mindless idiots that will take the word of any talking head on TV without concern for credibility, or believe any headline that comes from the hippest publications without reading the details.

Glenn Beck is one of a few that know the score and is trying to tell the American people.  Another is Michael Savage; and Brigitte Gabriel.  I urge you to take time to hear, really hear, their messages. 

If we are, indeed, in the beginning of massive change and world war, you owe it to your family, your children and yourself to stop “listening” to the nicely presented propaganda cloaked in touching ads and peppy network anchors.  Instead, begin “hearing” the evidence the truth and truly consider its possibility.  Read and educate yourself on the history of our country, our world, our enemies, our allies.  Seek out the hidden truths that are not found in school texts.  Below are several places to begin your journey.

Authors, historians and analysts

       

This quote was forwarded to me from several readers.  The author is unknown, but is cited as a citizen of the Czech Republic.  It would make sense that only one who has lived under the iron curtain of tyrannical socialism or communism would have the experiences and insight to view the situation in the United States of America as it is today and articulate the unspeakable truth.  As with Ayn Rand and her eerily familiar stories of a collapsing nation in The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged, this insight is a profound and accurate assessment.

 “The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.   The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool.  It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

With a narrow margin of only five votes, the United States House of Representatives has passed the health care reform bill with the final tally of 220-215.  No Republicans voted for the bill; and several Democrats voted against the bill. 

Tonight, our nation has crossed the Rubicon on its way toward Socialism. 

The take-over of the health care system – representing a 6th of our entire economy – was the key step in shackling our people.  These Socialists/Marxists that are controlling our government are now in position to dictate who lives and who dies.  They have placed the chains of dependent enslavement on our people under the disguise of “doing good.” 

Speaker Pelosi said tonight that, “…access to health care is a right, not a privilege…”  What grandiose words to use while speaking lies.  For the uneducated, undereducated, or simply uninformed in our population, this is a sound bite that is acceptable to our naïve ears.  It sounds great, kind, honorable – yet it is a bald face lie…and those at the helm know it. 

Rep. Hoyer stated that this legislation is the actualization of “what Presidents over 100 years have tried to do.”  He’s right.  It has been 100 years since Woodrow Wilson set the groundwork for the gradual transformation of our form of government from a Republic to Socialist dictatorship. 

The American people have roared against this bill, yet were ignored by our elected officials.  It is time, my fellow patriots, to roar with force.

Pestritto.  Pestritto exposes the Progressives, Communists and Socialists that have been behind the scenes in our government and how their acts with the appearance of “good intention” have paved the way toward a one world government.

Paul Revere's Ride

 

The climate kooks in Copenhagen are proving that life can imitate art as they adeptly play out the role of the “looters” from Ayn Rand’s classic, Atlas Shrugged. 

A chilling reality to those of us who are paying attention.  (Watch for John Stossel’s special on Atlas Shrugged, a Fox Business Network special report.) 

DrudgeReport alerts us to Andrew Bolt’s commentary on the response by the climate-kooks to the address given by Hugo Chavez: 

 
Climate summit erupts in ‘deafening applause’ for Hugo Chavez… 

To date, we have seen both houses of Congress put forth health care reform bills that are nothing more than a license to steal.  The latest travesty occurred this past Saturday evening when the Senate voted to continue discussions on the Democrats’ (no bipartisan input allowed) proposed health care bill. 

The pièce de résistance of this Senate proposal was not the bill per se, but the bribes that were included to obtain key votes and secure reelections. 

The critical votes for Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, were those from conservative Democrats who are facing backlash over ultra-liberal policies from the extreme Left of the party.  One very important vote was that of Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu, a conservative Democrat who has been somewhat critical of extreme liberal policies in the past.  Recently, Landrieu had voiced her “grave concerns” about the cost of the health care bill.  (more…)
