Obama’s Xanadu Comes Crumbling Down

Boy, how Obama has fallen since the time he came into office with all his talk of hope and change. Very little of what Obama promised us has come to pass. The man who gave a good speech, turned out to be just a lot of hot air. As time went on America saw that Obama was nothing without his teleprompter and in reality was not a good speech maker at all. So much has changed in the past four years, which only proves Vice President Joe Biden was right, when during the Democratic primaries of 2008, he said America could not afford to seat a President that needs on the job training, it was probably the only time Joe has made any sense, and America has paid the price.

I always said that in my lifetime, I would never see a President who was worse than Jimmy Carter, but I guess I was wrong, no wonder why Carter likes Obama so much, because now Carter knows he is not the worst President anymore. But America has only itself to blame for the situation we find ourselves in, we elected our first black President, but like I said back then, big deal, we have a black President that has no clue how to run a country. Obama is the perfect example against affirmative action.

However, all his inexperience is now coming to a head and everything that Obama has tried to do is coming back to bite him on the ass. We have a President, who like the Indians in those old movies used to say, speaks with a forked tongue, and after four years how can anyone believe a word he says. His biggest so called accomplishment was ObamaCare, which after two years is still unpopular and he doesn’t even bring it up on the campaign trail. A president who said he was going to work with both sides of the aisle, but rammed it through without a single Republican vote. As a matter of fact, when talking to John McCain about the bill, he famously said, “Elections have consequences and I won.” In other words he told McCain to shut-up, it does not matter what you have to say.

Well, now Obama’s world is crumbling in front of him, the economy he said he was going to fix is still broken and stuck in neutral. In his own words, he said the unemployment rate would be at 5.4% by now and our G.D.P. would be up at over 4%, wrong on both. People are hurting all around this country and his plan for the next four years is to keep doing the same thing as he did in the last four years.

All his make nice, nice policies to try to make our enemies like us is a complete disaster, the Middle East is on fire and still he will not blame our enemies, which are Muslims, instead he still wants to blame it on some video. Moreover, how about the lies and the cover-up, does he think the American people are stupid? I think that is exactly what he thinks. In addition, all those billions of dollars in so called loans to Green Energy Companies that were just payback to big contributors of his presidential campaign are falling apart. One by one, we see all these green companies filing for bankruptcy, billions wasted and thousands of jobs lost, this administration stinks of corruption. All this money wasted on green energy, while gas is up at $4.00 a gallon and he stops the pipeline from Canada, which would not only give us more oil, but create thousands of jobs as well. Obama also stopped permits for drilling on government lands, which means less oil and no jobs. His domestic policies are a joke and his foreign policies are a joke, so how on earth can anyone in their right mind vote to re-elect this guy, it just boggles the mind. We have a president who once said that,

“This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal,” what a joke that sounds like now.

Famed columnist Michael Goodwin, who voted for Obama in 2008 now says, “He failed as president because he is incompetent, dishonest and not interested in the actual work of governing. His statist policies helped consign millions of Americans to a lower standard of living and his odious class warfare further divided the nation. He had no intention of uniting the country — it was his Big Lie.”

Obama’s Xanadu is crumbling all around him, his failed policies are making a mockery of America around the world and a slew of his supporters have jumped ship and swam to the other side. Even Iran’s President,  Ahmadinejad said, America is becoming weaker because of all of our debt. How come our biggest enemy can see we are in trouble because of our debt, but not the president, he is either ignorant or blind, either way the house of cards he has built is crumbling and it is time for him to fade into history.

This is one man’s opinion.

No, Conservatives Don’t ‘Hate’ Stephanie Cutter

Here we go again. Those mean conservatives ganging up of a poor, helpless liberal from the Obama campaign, which happens to be the president’s deputy campaign manager.  We don’t “hate” Stephanie Cutter, which Amanda Marcotte suggested in her October 23 post on Slate’s feminist “Double X” blog.  Ok, let me walk that back – most conservatives don’t “hate” Stephanie Cutter.  You’ll always find those hyper-partisans, on either side of the aisle, that will have deep-seated hatred for the other side. But for the rest of us – it’s not hate that drives our passionate responses about Stephanie Cutter.  It’s the fact that she is dead wrong on most of the issues of this campaign. Oh, did I also mention that she engaged in deliberate misinformation.

First, Marcotte recommends Alex Sietz-Wald’s piece on Salon.com, which is a cesspool of American progressivism.  Marcotte wrote that “she’s [Cutter] an attractive woman who looks younger than her 44 years and who appears to believe that none of these attributes mean that she should be taken less seriously than a man in her position. As with Sandra Fluke and the poor woman who asked a question about equal pay at the last debate, it seems that being an attractive female with liberal opinions in your reproductive years who speaks in public makes you a target.” No, it’s when you’re a deputy campaign manager that makes you the target.  A title that shows that this isn’t your first time to the dance.  The same goes for Fluke.  She’s a seasoned political activist, who knew full well the chaos she was about to unleash when she gave that testimony on the Hill last winter. As Hyman Roth said, “this is the business we’ve chosen.”

“If conservative pundits don’t cut it out, they’ll soon find out that the era when pretty unmarried women were considered “girls”—expected to be quiet and let the adults do the talking—is waning rapidly. Over time, people are going to start noticing the correlation between the amount of hate aimed at a woman and her single, attractive status, and begin to piece it together, ” according to Marcotte.  I’m sure The Hardy Boys are on the case.  What correlation is Marcotte talking about?  What hate does she speak of? This is pure liberal drivel.

Marcotte then cites “Seitz-Wald [who] quotes Rush Limbaugh, whose attacks on Cutter are pretty standard issue when it comes to his approach to any nice looking liberal woman with the audacity to flap her lips: assert repeatedly that said woman is only useful as a sex object, and angrily disavow the very idea that she might actually have some intelligence of her own.”

Well, let’s go over Cutter’s top three whoppers she’s said so far during this election.

Let’s start with her denial that she didn’t know any facts relating to Joe Soptic, aka cancer man, even though she had a conference call with him in May of this year.

Here she is lying about not knowing the details surrounding Joe Soptic’s wife.

A U.S. ambassador was assassinated for the first time in thirty-three years in Libya.  The calls for more protection at our compound in Benghazi were ignored.  The narrative surrounding the cause of the terrorist attack constantly changes.  Yet, Cutter thinks this isn’t a foreign policy disaster.  As Ed Morrissey noted, that our efforts with NATO to oust Qaddafi lead to the proliferation of terror networks in Libya.  Love him or hate him – Qaddafi kept these people out.

By the way, this little kerfuffle in Libya is only an issue because Mitt Romney is politicizing the tragedy.  Yep, how dare someone ask questions about the facts surrounding a terrorist attack on Americans.  How dare Mitt Romney demonstrate that he could be a more competent commander-in-chief.  Did anyone tell Cutter that this is an election?

Then, there is the $5 trillion dollar lie concerning Mitt Romney’s tax cuts.  A spin tactic Cutter admitted wasn’t true.

Cutter: Well, okay, stipulated. It won’t be near $5 trillion but it’s also not going to be the sum of $5 trillion in the loopholes that he’s going to close. So it is going to cost someone and it’s going to cost the middle class. Independent economists have taken a look at this. There aren’t enough deductions for those at the top to account for the number of tax cuts that they get because of Mitt Romney’s policy so you have to raise taxes on the middle class. As Bill Clinton said, it’s just simple math.

Burnett: Okay, they’ll just say that you can do that. They’re are other studies. I know the one to which you’re referring, but there’s also the possibility of economic growth.

Cutter: Prove it. Erin, prove it.

Burnett: We can’t prove either side, that’s all I’m saying, but the one thing that I can say is not true is the $5 trillion tax cut.

Cutter: I disagree with you. You can prove it. So then they should just say that they’re counting entirely on economic growth to pay for a tax cut. Which is an interesting theory because that is what George Bush and let’s look at how that turned out, we had the slowest economic growth since World War II.

Burnett: They’re not saying entirely, they’re saying closing loopholes and economic growth, both. I understand you disagree with it.

Cutter: But that still leaves you at least a trillion dollars short. The math does not work with what they’re saying. And they won’t name those deductions, not a single deduction that they will close because they know that is bad for their politics. Now look, this is the center, this is the core of Mitt Romney’s economic policy. Last night, he walked away from it, said he didn’t have a $5 trillion tax cut. He does. That’s what lowering the rates amounts to.

Lastly, Cutter said that the Obama recovery has created more jobs than Reagan’s in the 1980s.

James Pethokoukis of the American Enterprise Institute had this to say on the matter.

From the end of the recession in June 2009 through July 2012 — the first 37 months of the Obama recovery — the U.S. economy has generated 2.7 million net new jobs. From the jobs low point in February 2010, the U.S. economy has generated 4 million net new jobs.

From the end of the 1981-82 recession through the end of of 1985 —  the first 37 months of the Reagan recovery — the U.S.created 9.8 million net new jobs. And if you adjust for the larger U.S. population today, the comparable figure is more than 12 million jobs.

So, it’s not that conservatives “hate” Stephanie Cutter.  We just hate her lies and willful ignorance concerning the facts, which has gotten her tongue tied on live TV at times.  Lastly, to hang the hate card on Rush Limbaugh and to convey that fat that he’s the leader of the conservative movement is too easy.  He’s one of many voices in conservative America.  We have different opinions and tolerate such differences within our big tent.  A notion liberals seem to forget, as they have a tendency to eat their own during election cycles.
Our, or should I say my, problem with Cutter isn’t that she’s a woman, single, attractive or smart.  I find those qualities appealing.  It’s that she’s a liar and a deceiver with a long rap sheet affirming such notions.

On November 6th, Remember Obama’s Record

In 2008, America was tired.

War-weary.  And fearful of an impending financial crisis.

The country hungered for change.

Candidate Barack Obama offered the nation a sappy-sweet promise of “hope and change” full of high emotion and little substance to which many disillusioned Americans fell prey.

In 2012, America is more fearful than ever.  The promised change has not come.  In its place, a dark agenda of wealth redistribution, punitive taxes and massive expansion of government control in all areas of our lives.

Some saw this coming.  Others are just awakening to the nightmare.

Now, Barack Obama says he wants four more years to finish what he started.

Except this time, the happy talk and lofty rhetoric is gone.  There’s a record to review.

And the reviews are not good.

The polls are reflecting this truth and it’s only going to get worse.

Because when Americans go to the polls on November 6th, we will remember the Obama record.

We’ll remember Obamacare being forced down our throats without one Republican vote and without anyone reading the bill.  Our voices were heard loud and clear at town hall meetings across the nation.  Yet, Obama and Congressional Democrats chose to rule against the will of the people.

We won’t forget or forgive them for it.

As the details of Obamacare slowly dripped out, people of faith joined in protest of provisions requiring religious institutions to provide health insurance that covered abortions and abortifacients.  Barack pledged that there would be no taxpayer funded abortions in Obamacare.  But, now he demands that religious organizations violate their conscience and support the murder of unborn babies.

Obama repeatedly promised that no American earning over $250,000 would receive a tax increase.  America believed and was then shocked to find 21 new taxes hidden within the 2,000 pages of the Obamacare law.  We won’t forget that.

He said that Obamacare was not, in any way, a tax on Americans.  Yet, when Obamacare reached the Supreme Court, the Obama team argued that the law actually was a tax and, therefore, constitutional because of Congress’ power to tax.  The Supreme Court clarified.  Obamacare is a tax, the largest in U.S. history.

In 2008 Obama promised to lower the unemployment rate to under 6%. Yet, today, true unemployment is in the 15% range with untold Americans underemployed or having given up looking for work altogether.

Meanwhile, Obama has not passed a single budget since entering office.  Both Democrats and Republicans have rejected his budget proposals.  That is inexcusable, and it will be on our minds.

As gas prices soar, we’ll remember that Obama restricted American oil production and rejected the Keystone Pipeline while championing and providing financial assistance for oil drilling by Brazil.  His war on coal is killing jobs in coal producing states and threatening to decimate the entire U.S. coal industry.

Meanwhile, Barack channeled 90 billion dollars for “green energy” to companies like Solyndra, Abound Solar, A123 Battery Co, Ener1 and Beacon Power all of which went bankrupt.

We remember Obama’s foreign policy record as he insulted our closest allies by returning the bust of Winston Churchill to Britain and choosing to put “daylight” between America and Israel.  Remember Barack’s hateful glare at Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu?

And who can forget Obama’s overseas apology tour as he criticized America while standing on foreign soil?

Americans heard Obama, on a hot mic, tell Russian President Medvedev and, by extension Vladimir Putin, that he’d have “more flexibility” after the election to deal with difficult issues such as missile defense.

Obama championed the “Arab Spring” while a radical, Islamist government arose in Egypt with anti-American, anti-Christian sentiments.  Coptic Christians are beaten and slaughtered in Egypt and in Nigeria.  According to Obama, the “Arab Spring” is a victory for democracy.

We know better.

We remember the Iranian protests of 2009 as they sought freedom for their nation and asked “Obama, are you with us or against us?”  Obama’s silence was deafening.  Iran remains in the hands of radical, apocalyptic Islamists committed to achieving nuclear weapons and the destruction of Israel and the United States.

Two days after the announcement of Bin Laden’s death, Vice President Joe Biden revealed that U.S. Navy SEALs had ended OBL’s existence.  One month later, the Administration provided the name of the planner and SEAL commander to Hollywood producers.  90 days after Bin Laden’s demise 22 U.S. SEALS, most from SEAL Team 6, were killed in Afghanistan when their helicopter was shot down by a rocket propelled grenade.  30 service personnel died that day.  The worst single day death toll in the entire Afghanistan war.

We will not forget them or that Obama Administration leaks likely contributed to their deaths.

Meanwhile, Libya is in shambles and Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three brave Americans are dead.  We remember their names:

Glen Doherty.

Tyrone Woods.

Sean Smith.

And we won’t forget that they were abandoned in their hour of need or that Barack Obama continues to lie to the American people about the events of that day.

Mr. President, when you needed them, the SEALs responded and killed Bin Laden.  When they needed you in Benghazi, where were you?

We are repulsed by the President’s lawlessness as he signed executive orders circumventing Congress and changing U.S. policy toward illegal immigration, effectively implementing “The Dream Act” without Congressional approval.  And by refusing to defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and negating key work provisions of Bill Clinton’s Welfare Reform Act, he violated his oath, and the law, once again.

Maybe it’s all in a day’s work for him.   But, we expect our presidents to obey the law.  We’ll remember that Barack did not.

We’ll remember Operation Fast and Furious and seek to honor U.S. Border Agent Brian Terry and his grieving family.  The Obama Administration allowed thousands of weapons to “walk” into Mexico.  Those weapons killed Brian Terry and are now killing Mexican citizens.

And we won’t forget that President Obama invoked Executive Privilege to prevent the truth from being known about this deadly scandal.

We’ll be reminded that Obama has repeatedly lied to the American people as demonstrated in numerous articles, fact checks and witnessed by tens of millions of Americans during the recent presidential debates.

We’ll surely remember Obama quoting the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal and endowed….with certain unalienable rights…” regularly omitting the words “by their Creator.” 

All parents will remember that Barack and Michelle Obama mandated what kind of food and how much of it our children can eat while at school even to the point of confiscating our children’s homemade lunches.

And no one will ever forget You didn’t build that!”

As Americans vote this next Tuesday, we will remember the Obama record and how it has affected the people in our lives.

We’ll think about family and friends who are out of work or are just barely scraping by.

We’ll think about the millions of Americans who have lost their homes and now wonder if they’ll ever own a home again.

We’ll think about our children and every parent’s dream that their children’s lives will be better than their own.

Many will wonder if they’ll ever retire or if being a senior citizen means having to say “do you want fries with that?” or “welcome to Walmart” until they can no longer physically perform.

We’ll remember our men and women in uniform and wonder if their Commander in Chief truly values their lives and the sacrifices of their families.

Business owners will wonder if they’ll be able to expand and hire new workers or if they’ll be forced to lay off more of their valued employees.  Even worse, if they’ll be forced to close their doors forever.

And entrepreneurs will wonder if opportunity will still exist in America.  If free enterprise can survive another four years of Barack Obama.

Americans will remember the Obama record.

His inability to get things done, to perform on behalf of the American people.

And to tell the truth.

Obama will be weighed in the balance against previous presidents, and he will be found wanting.

Incompetent.  Dishonest.  And un-American.

As history judges the record of President Barack Obama, it may be that his one, signature achievement was not only unintended, but something that no one thought possible.

In less than four years, Barack Obama has made even Jimmy Carter seem competent by comparison.

And Bill Clinton seem honest.

On November 6th, we’ll remember.

 


Andrea Mitchell Attacks Mitt Romney for Making Collections for Sandy Victims

MSNBC host, Andrea Mitchell, attacked Mitt Romney for making collections to help the victims effected by Hurricane Sandy.

“And then you have the image of Mitt Romney, doing what they say is not a campaign event, in the same space they were going to hold a campaign event,” says Mitchell. “They say they are making collections for hurricane and storm relief. Chris Cillizza, first to you: We checked with the Red Cross, the Red Cross said, well, they are always grateful for donations, but this is not what they need or want. That they always tell people, please donate money, because we have our own packagers, wholesalers. They have their own distribution system. And to now get these canned goods from the Romney event in Ohio, and have to first package it–used clothes, they have to clean, they can’t go directly to victims. So, what they need are donations of blood and donations of money. It does seem like a thinly veiled–why Ohio? Why choose Ohio?”

“Right,” responds Cillizza, “because the storm is kind of there” in Ohio, while Mitchell interjects simultaneously, “not in Ohio.”

Per the Toledo Blaze, “High winds spinning off the edge of superstorm Sandy took a vicious swipe at northeast Ohio early Tuesday, uprooting trees, cutting power to hundreds of thousands, closing schools and flooding parts of major commuter arteries that run along Lake Erie.

“At least 250,000 homes and businesses in Ohio — the majority in the Cleveland area — were still without power by early afternoon. Scattered outages reached down into central and eastern Ohio, with some in the southern part of the state. Utilities said it could be days before it’s fully restored.”

The Obama Youth

Recently an advertising agency by the name of Goodby Silverstein and Partners came up with an ad that asks viewers, “what would the children of the future think if we let them down this November and blames mom and dad for electing Romney. This is the Obama Youth, same as the Hitler Youth, staring blankly into space singing about Romney fixing gays, letting people die and killing polar bears and oil in the seas and blaming their parents if that happens. SICK!!!! Nothing could be further from the truth. So despicable indeed using innocent children to promote this kindof evil. Check out the video and lyrics in the link I have provided below. Never forget that Obama said at the beginning of his term he wanted an internal army bigger than our regular army. As far as letting people die, Obamacare does just that as at 70 years of age they put you in comfort care if you need a major operation as everything is cost effective and based on the current lifespan. Talk about letting people die. This ad is brainwashing kids at its’ best. Romney wants to repeal Obamcare which is another reason he must be elected. I realize he had a similar plan in Mass., but I don’t think it let people die like Obamcare does.

Page 30 section123 of Obamcare clearly states that there will be a government committee that decides what benefits and treatments you receive. These committees are the so called “death panels” that Sarah Palin talked about and that liberals refuse to acknowledge.

Also check out the link I have provided below. This tells you page and reference what’s in the healthcare bill. Government controls your life even in death and has access to all your files and bank accounts for money transfers and a say in any living wills ,etc. and who gets what and how much care. You have no choice.

In 2009, President Obama said that: “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

Intimating that the internal affairs of the US necessitate a civilian army because America’s security was threatened from within harkens to dictators of the past that created their own youth groups of trained citizens that were brainwashed into believing that continuity of government supersede basic adherence to fundamental human rights, i.e. Hitler’s Youth Group.

As Joseph Farah stated in World Net Daily:

“Are we talking about creating a police state here?

The U.S. Army alone has nearly 500,000 troops. That doesn’t count reserves or National Guard. In 2007, the U.S. Defense budget was $439 billion.

Is Obama serious about creating some kind of domestic security force bigger and more expensive than that?

If not, why did he say it? What did he mean?

So far, despite our attempts to find out, the Obama campaign is not talking.”

Ad uses children to sing Romney will let people ‘just die,’ kill polar bears, oil fill the seas…

Isn’t the creation of a civilian police force akin to a police state?
Here is the link of Obama stating he wants to create one
Obama stating that he wants a civilian security force

Reasons and numbers

When compared to 2008, Barack Obama’s early vote advantage has dropped by 22 points.  That is according to Gallup, one of if not the most respected American poll.

In this year’s early voting Mitt Romney leads Obama by seven points, 52-45 percent.  Four years ago, Obama led John McCain among early voters by fifteen-points, 55-40 percent.

The latest National Public Radio poll registered an 8 point swing in favor of Romney that puts him in front.  The NPR poll, which showed Obama ahead of Romney 51- 44 percent a month ago, now has Romney leading 48-47 percent.  Romney is doing particularly well with independent voters.

According to NPR:

“Most of the gains for Romney have come from independents, who went from favoring Romney by a few points before the debates to favoring him 51% to 39% after the debates.”

Obama’s left base, in the form of Michael Moore and MoveOn.Org, has responded with an ad which allegedly speaks for the Greatest Generation:

“If your voter suppression throughout this beautiful country enables Romney to oust Barack Obama, we will burn this mother f*cker down.  I’m going to track down Mitt Romney and give him the world’s biggest c*ck punch.”

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/332037/all-class-ad-vows-cck-punch-mitt-romney-viewer-discretion-advised-eliana-johnson#

Americans raised in the homes of the Greatest Generation know the Greatest Generation…they are their mothers and fathers.  This ad does not come from the Greatest Generation.  This ad definitely is not the Greatest Generation.

What this ad reflects is the depths to which the institutionalized “progressive” left is willing to sink in its desperate bid to hang on to absolute power.

They were so close.

They won the Congress and Senate in 2006, and thought they had put the final piece of the puzzle in place in 2008 with Obama’s election.  They could do whatever they wanted and America could not stop them.  Their all-powerful centrally planned “progressive” big government would rule America in perpetuity.

In 2010 Americans thought otherwise.

Now, America needs to send “progressives” home licking their wounds from an obvious shellacking.

Furthermore, America needs to remember how sneaky, nasty, dishonest, irresponsible, selfish and contemptible “progressives” were between 2006 and 2012 and never, ever, ever vote them back into power.

Hurricane Sandy – How To Help

.

As Hurricane Sandy begins to weaken and pass, cleanup efforts and relief are needed.  Here is how you can help through the American Red Cross.

NOTE – Only use reputable charities and organizations in order to avoid scams.

FINANCIAL HELP

Financial donations help the Red Cross provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to those affected by disasters like Hurricane Sandy. To donate, people can visit www.redcross.org , call 1-800-RED-CROSS, or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Contributions may also be sent to someone’s local Red Cross chapter or to the American Red Cross, P.O. Box 37243, Washington, DC 20013.

The Salvation Army is also accepting donations for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.  You can donate online by clicking on the following link: https://donate.salvationarmyusa.org/disaster

Also with the Salvation Army, you can contact your local branch HERE to find out if items are needed such as food, clothing, children’s toys, or other goods.

RED CROSS APPS

More than 235,000 people have downloaded the free Red Cross Hurricane App Friday when Sandy began approaching, making it one of the most popular free apps. The app gives up-to-date weather alerts, information on open Red Cross shelters, a toolkit with a flashlight, strobe light and alarm and a one-touch “I’m Safe” button that lets someone use social media outlets to let family and friends know they are okay.

People have been using the app to find shelters, to set up locations for the app to monitor, to make a disaster plan, and learn what steps they can take to stay safe. The app is available in Spanish just by changing the smart phone setting to Spanish before downloading.

The First Aid app puts expert advice for everyday emergencies in a person’s hand. Both can be found in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store for Android by searching for American Red Cross.

How Far Will the Left Go? Pretty Darn Far.

So, this last week we’ve seen a young adult talking about her ‘first time’, an ad filled with sexual innuendo and references; followed by younger children with sad little faces and drawn mouths singing wanly about the wanton destruction of the country due to their parents’ foolish votes for republicans and now this:

MoveOn.org has teamed up with Michael Moore to produce a new pro Obama advertisement. Filmed in a supposed ‘nursing home’ the ad features scripted octo- and nonagenarians who tell us just what they’re going to do if Mitt Romney ‘steals’ the election. The commercial is vile and foul mouthed, not representative of the seniors most of us know and respect as the Greatest Generation.

Can this election get any further in the gutter? I don’t think so.
NOTE: This is the PG version. The ad is being promoted without the bleeps.

UPDATE: It has been pointed out that these are actors, probably paid, probably in heavy make up and probably following a script. That could surely be so. But it still gives me the heebie jeebies. tw

We cannot afford to be a silent majority.

VOTE November 6 to take back civility.

Bigoted, Racist, No-Good, Evil Conservatives and the Leftists Who Need Them

All those who dabble in the dark arts of conservatism are called bigots, racists, sexists, homophobes or just plain evil in the course of exchanging pleasantries with the left. So why not just own it?

Fine, I’m a bigot, a racist, a sexist and a homophobe, according to a warped left-wing worldview that casts all those who oppose government redistribution as oppressors of blacks, immigrants, gays and women.

Obviously, any wingnut’s confession of guilt for the litany of sins charged by his fork-tongued adversaries is tongue-in-cheek. The question is: do progressives who project such a nefarious psyche onto their ideological opponents really believe the nonsense they’re spouting? In other words, are lefties getting high on their own supply?

There are two kinds of people who believe the tripe that conservatives are racist misogynistic knuckle-draggers: the uncritical soft left, who suckle at the sour teats of MSNBC and CBS News, Huffington Post or Yahoo News; and the Marxist, Castroite left, whose ideological framework necessarily casts their opponents in the mold of bigots, racists and women-oppressors.

But let’s leave aside the flotsam and jetsam who float idly on the neomarxist cultural tide and concentrate on the ideological leadership. Why do the Ivy league set say the right is full of closet Klan members aching for a return to the ‘good old days’ when a fella could whimsically rape and abuse women in public, force them to carry babies to term, and then burn any as witches who so much think about asking for child support?

The left needs the right. In a zero-sum world where the poor are necessarily impoverished by the rich, the minority are necessarily oppressed by the majority, and physically weaker women are the prey of physically stronger men, then there is no other explanation for someone opposing the left’s equalization of life’s injustice than being prejudiced.

That’s why if you oppose Barack Obama’s quixotic brand of value redistribution, then you must be a heartless racist! That’s why if you think the Lily Ledbetter act is a condescending piece of legislation that neglects the market’s punishment of idiots who don’t recompense for value because of anti-vagina bias, then you sir, are a mysogynist. And that’s why if you believe that immigrants must at least pay tributary acknowledgment of our rule of law and our system of government, then you must be a xenophobe.

In order to cast themselves as heroes of their own passion play righting the wrongs of cosmic injustice, progressives need villains. It’s not enough to yell, Lieutenant-Danlike, in front of an ungodly hurricane, “Come and get me, you son of a bitch!” — one has to cast other human beings as somehow responsible for the gargantuan storm.

Never mind that any hurricane possesses the combined force of several million nuclear bombs; in order to stop these catastrophic acts of Nature, people just need to stop breathing. It’s the progressive version of “original sin,” born of a post-religious worldview that takes all the worst aspects of Christianic faith and throws in the non-redeeming value of eschewing God.

But underlying this point-of-view is the true irony: it casts all members of a given class of people (sound familiar?) as inherently needing of progressives’ help. Women truly are needing of all sorts of government protections; lest the marketplace would have them all in sweatshops. Blacks need housing projects or even better, redlining legislation; or else greedy bankers would win out (by not making money on mortgages, apparently). If humans are allowed to go about their business making stuff without progressives putting a halt to it, the planet will be poisoned and all life on earth will end as we know it.

Not to mention that according to taxpayer-funded NPR, if you plan on voting for the mildly pro-market Romney/Ryan, then just put your check on the “white supremacist ticket“…

The conservative’s answer to the left on matters of economic justice is that consumers, laborers and businesses are held accountable for their decisions every day, as voted on in dollars. People don’t need biased, self-interested progressives rigging the system for themselves or for crony corporations or for unions. Right-wingers would rather have the maximum amount of economic power in their own hands; and no, they don’t believe working for or buying products from corporations is an act of exploitation. On the other side of the “corporate exploitation” equation are the consumers that derive benefit from their goods and services.

The progressive worldview is a paternalistic breed of racism and sexism that projects its biases onto those who oppose them on principled grounds. Conservatives don’t believe in ever-expansive, redistributive government, period. They don’t think people need it, in general, because there is enough equality in society among the great majority that if the marketplace is unleashed, people will have more than enough opportunities to triumph over adversity, making themselves and their country better in the process.

The conservative, therefore, is decidedly unbiased. Individuals can make it if the government’s big black boots of taxation, regulation, and redistribution are taken off their throats. Welfare and unemployment suppress human development; they represent the opposite of the kind of self-empowerment conservatives want to see for all citizens.

The conservative worldview is one where people are potential winners and not all tragedies in life can be prevented, only tempered through personally given charity and love; lest we empower a government that will cause more systematic and widespread tragedy through tyranny.

Coast Guard Rescue of HMS Bounty

A replica tall ship, the HMS Bounty was caught in Hurricane Sandy Monday. Though the crew tried to sail around the storm they lost propulsion and began taking on water forcing them to abandon ship.
All but two of the crew were able to make it into the emergency rafts. At least one crew member died from injuries sustained,

In the midst of this deadly hurricane the Coast Guard sent its rescue helicopters out. The following video shows in real time the dangers these brave men and women face.

Desperate Times Call for… Children? New Pro-Obama Ad

UPDATE 10/31/12: The song has been changed from public to private viewing. Still available for like-minded but not for the rest of us. But, you can read the lyrics and know this is what some believe.

Just in time for Election Day, one Obama PAC is promoting a frightening new ad about the state of our country.  Using fear and children this ad is meant to remind voters that only the Democrats know the true path for a better future. What better way to reach the hearts of voters than through sad little voices of children especially filmed in heart wrenching black and white?

From the song, “Find a park that is still open
And take a breath of poison air”

From Carla Marinucci’s blog at the San Francisco Chronicle: The award-winning ad team that brought you “Got Milk?” and some of America’s most iconic ads have created a touching, memorable — and, yes, slightly terrifying — new spot that stars America’s children. Just in time for Election Day, it’s selling a striking message — about the country’s future.

Another verse, “The Earth is cracked
Big Bird is sacked
And the atmosphere is frying”

The Blaze: The ad is the brainchild of Jeff Goodby and Rich Silverstein, of the San Francisco-based Goodby Silverstein & Partners, for their Future Children Project. The Future Children Project states on its website, “Re-electing President Obama is a momentous decision that will require every single voter. What would the children of the future say if we let them down this November?”

No one can argue that this is a major propaganda ad. Little children reminding their parents that if they don’t vote for Obama again it will be their fault that the world is all messed up.

 And yes, if you don’t vote right, “You did your best
You failed the test

Mom and Dad
We’re blaming you!”

While unsaid, it’s obvious that the mean old Republicans are destroying the earth through its love of big business; intolerant and willing to let people die; unwilling to spend money for roads and schools…  Yes, in short, the GOP is inflexible and wants the children to suffer…  It’s the Democratic Party platform put to music.

You can watch the song; the lyrics are provided below just for fun.

Imagine an America
Where strip mines are fun and free
Where gays can be fixed
And sick people just die
And oil fills the sea

We don’t have to pay for freeways!
Our schools are good enough
Give us endless wars
On foreign shores
And lots of Chinese stuff

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

We haven’t killed all the polar bears
But it’s not for lack of trying
The Earth is cracked
Big Bird is sacked
And the atmosphere is frying

Congress went home early
They did their best we know
You can’t cut spending
With elections pending
Unless it’s welfare dough

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

Find a park that is still open
And take a breath of poison air
They foreclosed your place
To build a weapon in space
But you can write off your au pair

It’s a little awkward to tell you
But you left us holding the bag
When we look around
The place is all dumbed down
And the long term’s kind of a drag

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And yeah, we’re blaming you

You did your best
You failed the test

Mom and Dad
We’re blaming you!
