3 Things You Didn’t Know About Islam

Islam- The most important video on Islam.

YouTube Description:

Most important video I have ever seen about Islam — thanks whoever made it.Every non-muslim should know these facts before they begin to know about it — at least the first one.You will never able to find out two Islamic clerics simultaneously explaining Qur’an same way.There is no authentic translated version of Qur’an — because these are all the part of their strategy or treachery to hide the facts.Truth is Qur’an is the most heinous ideological book ever written in this planet — at least for a non-muslim.In fact,”Main Campf” is child to it and probably inspired by this book. At a core level, there is no such big difference among Communism, Nazism and Islamic Ideology —- at least in the eyes of a stupid Indian like me.Please, don’t hear anybody — how great he is, just read the book and decide yourself.

How Halloween can teach your children about Socialism

votenomalley2Yes, you read that correctly. Halloween may be a Pagan holiday from a long time ago but it also creates as Barack Obama likes to say a “teachable moment.” If this exercise that I’m about to give you is done correctly it should have a significant impact on your child this Halloween and will illustrate to them just how unjust and unfair Socialism can be.

A liberal’s favorite holiday must be Halloween. They get to knock on stranger’s doors and ask for free handouts. If you think I’m trying to take all the fun out of Halloween than you haven’t read anything yet. Liberals have a mindset that they should not have to work for anything and that they should be giving things that they never worked for. They have an entitlement attitude that is so nauseating my stomach is starting to hurt just writing this, but I digress.

If you have children and plan to go trick or treating with them try this exercise.

Go out and knock on all the doors you can in your neighborhood. Make your kids walk the neighborhood until their little feet are sore. Depending on their age you may only need to walk for a little more than 30 minutes. Make sure they collect a lot of candy. So much candy that they can barely carry it home by themselves. As soon as you get home dump out all the candy on the table and inspect it. Once you realize that it is all safe to eat tell your kids they did a good job collecting all the candy.

Before they can start enjoying the fruits of their labor immediately take away half of all the candy that they collected. When they complain and ask you why you took away half their candy, tell them because you didn’t have any. Their natural reaction should be to tell you that it is unfair. This is when you teach them the valuable difference between Socialism and Capitalism.

Ask them how they felt having to give up half their candy just because you wanted it but didn’t work for it? Ask them if they think it is fair that everyone must be equal regardless of their work ethic? I think you know what their answers might be. Then when they fully understand the meaning behind this exercise obviously give them back the other half of their candy. Your children will never forget this exercise, and it hopefully will help shape their views long term against the evils of Socialism.

This may seem like a cruel and unusual exercise but it is a necessary exercise that your children will thank you for doing to them later in life. This is a real life, relatable exercise that will teach your kids the absurdity of Socialism. It will also help to combat the leftist indoctrination from the Common Core loving union backed public school teachers that will spend eight hours a day teaching your children to be ashamed of their country, and to think the Constitution is an outdated document. So when your child is taught that Capitalism is evil and Socialism is good they will think back on that very important lesson they were taught one Halloween.

Wheelchair-Bound Gun Owner Shoots Robber

YouTube Description:

A wheelchair bound jewelry store owner in Alcoa, Tennessee has proven more than the fact that guns save lives and stop the bad guys. He’s proven that they also level the playing field.

Jewelery store owner Danny Malone had two men come into his store last week under the guise of shopping for jewelery. One of the men asked to look at a piece for his girlfriend, but when Malone noticed that the man was not paying much attention to the piece of jewelery he began to grow suspicious of his visitor’s true intent.

Why Changing Demographics Mean More Democrats

spyonme1They always shoot the messenger. Even when he’s being optimistic.

And Mitt Romney was optimistic when he said only 47 percent of the potential electorate wouldn’t vote for him because they were dependent on the government. The actual Census Bureau figures are much worse.

The bureau reports 49.2 percent of your fellow citizens received some type of benefit from one or more government programs. A more accurate term would be ‘residents’ since when bureaucrats display their compassion by distributing your money, a lack of documentation is seldom an obstacle. These particular recipients are not conservative, small government voters. They constitute a large portion of the Democrat base.

People in the US that receive means–tested government benefits actually outnumber the people who worked fulltime in 2011. In the fourth quarter of 2011, 108,592,000 individuals were on the receiving end of federal goodies compared with only 101,760,000 working fulltime.

This is a catastrophic situation for supporters of conservative, small government and it threatens to undermine the nation’s social fabric. Possibly you feel sorry for these unfortunates, at least the ones that don’t loot Walmart when the food stamp verification system crashes. But they don’t return the favor.

Our current situation is the equivalent of enjoying a business dinner at a popular restaurant. At the conclusion of the meal other diners, waiters, valet parkers, kitchen staff and the hostess look at the remnants of your prime rib repast and vote to have you pay for everyone eating dinner that evening and add a 25 percent tip to the bill.

(I know some of you parents are thinking, “Hey! That’s exactly what happened to me when my daughter got married!” But these are strangers sucking you dry, not relatives.)

Or you go to the doctor’s office and while you sit in the waiting room, the other patients notice your elegant topcoat and they vote to have you foot the bill for everyone’s treatment that day.

Farfetched? Unrealistic? A similar scenario takes place every Election Day when people who are essentially wards of the state vote for politicians who tell you to foot the bill for the ward’s benefits. Please don’t bore me with “but these people pay taxes, too.” Paying sales tax with taxpayer’s money is hardly “paying taxes.” It’s closer to an inefficient form of recycling.

Although these recipients are the vast bulk of the Democrat base, they are not alone. The big government base (BGB) also includes federal, state and local government employees; government contractors, grant recipients and the non–profit sector.

Here’s how the numbers break out:

20,269,000 total government workers

13,700,000 non–profit workers

4,400,000 government contractors

100,000,000 enrolled in one of 80 different and overlapping “means–tested” welfare programs                            (this figure does not include Social Security or Medicare recipients)

         TOTAL BGB: 138,369,000 individuals

In fact the federal government alone employs more people than the top ten private sector employers combined! Federal: 18,000,000 (not counting military) Vs. 5,677,046 for General Electric, Hewlett–Packard, Home Depot, Kroger, Target, UPS, IBM, McDonald’s, Yum! Brands and Walmart.

Factor in another 9,000,000 or so formerly illegal voters after “immigration reform” and we are well on our way to Argentina.

This goes a long way toward explaining Obama’s re–election.

Of course not all the 100,000,000 welfare recipients are voting age and not all government workers and contractors pull the Democrat lever. I know of patriotic government employees and contractors that put the good of the country before their own economic interests and I say God bless them.

Unfortunately, those stalwart individuals are more than offset by working Americans under the delusion Democrats favor the middle class. And don’t forget the workforce also includes moles that work for MSNBC and other propaganda arms of the BGB, along with private university professors and other assorted leftists.

This is why it doesn’t matter that the Obamacare website cost $500 million in hard–earned tax dollars and Chinese renminbi. That’s more than Facebook spent in six full years according to reporter Andrew Couts.

But aside from the embarrassment, no one in the BGB cares. Their criteria for success is not does the website work, is the program efficient or are we using tax dollars wisely. The BGB measure of success is: Did I get my check and did it cash?

Voters living on Uncle Sam’s dime are not going to be voting to downsize government. BGB economics are based on the existence of a money tree, possibly growing in China.

The Chinese and our other creditors would be the greatest gift to conservatives since Ronald Reagan if they simply refused to lend the Uncle Sam any more money. Limiting federal borrowing will limit the size of the federal government. Even our rapacious leftists couldn’t tax their way out of that hole.

Unless the size of the government shrinks — and that includes benefits — there is no hope for avoiding soft socialism in our future. And — judging by the number of government agencies that have their own SWAT teams — maybe not so soft at that.

There are principled conservatives in office who refuse to vote to increase spending without a corresponding cut to balance the total. That’s fine, but it’s not enough. They must also refuse to add to the number of government employees or contractors without a corresponding reduction in force in another part of government.

Otherwise potential death spirals won’t be limited to Obamacare.

New York Doctors Revolt Over Obama-Care

We have to pass the bill so we can find out what is in it said Nancy Pelosi, well she was right, we are all finding out what is in it and we don’t like it. But how long will it take before people get mad enough and they demand this law be overturned? Doctors in New York are already starting to face the reality of Obama-Care and it’s not pretty.  This is from a story from the New York Post.

New York doctors are treating Obama-Care like the plague, a new survey reveals.

A poll conducted by the New York State Medical Society finds that 44 percent of MDs said they are not participating in the nation’s new health-care plan.

Another 33 percent say they’re still not sure whether to become Obama-Care providers.

Only 23 percent of the 409 physicians queried said they’re taking patients who signed up through health exchanges.

“This is so poorly designed that a lot of doctors are afraid to participate,” said Dr. Sam Unterricht, president of the 29,000-member organization. “There’s a lot of resistance. Doctors don’t know what they’re going to get paid.”

Three out of four doctors who are participating in the program said they “had to participate” because of existing contractual obligations with an insurer or medical provider, not because they wanted to.

Only one in four “affirmatively” chose to sign up for the exchanges.

Nearly eight in 10 — 77 percent — said they had not been given a fee schedule to show much they’ll get paid if they sign up.

The survey invited doctors to anonymously share opinions about the new health care law, and many took time out of their busy days to vent.

“Obama Care wants to start right away, but who will see all these new patients? Not me,” e-mailed one doc.

Another said, “I plan to retire if this disaster is implemented. This is a train wreck.”

“I refuse to participate in the exchange plans! I am completely opposed to this new law,” said a third respondent.

One doctor recycled the mantra used to attack addictions: “The solution is simple: Just say no.”

One physician was so disgusted, he threatened to take only cash patients going forward.

“I am seriously considering opting out of all insurance plans including Medicare because of Obama-Care.”

Some physicians said the pressure on insurance carriers to control costs is leading to rationed care.

“Obama-Care is a disaster. I have already seen denial of medication, denial of referrals,” one doc said.

“Any doctor who accepts the exchange is just a bad businessman/woman. Pays terrible,” argued one doctor.

Said another MD, “Can’t imagine any doctors would be willing to work for so little money? All doctors should boycott.”

“I get screwed from insurance companies already. I refuse to get screwed any longer,” one doctor said.

Others said they don’t have enough information to make an informed choice.

“This is a joke. We are flying blind,” said one doctor.

That doctor hit the nail on the head, this law is one big joke, a joke that will destroy health-care in this country and the economy as well, when will people have enough?

Myth: “the Defense Lobby buys politicians”

tokenlibertariangopfail

For some years, some people have erroneously believed and claimed that defense budgets are determined by, and weapons programs initiated at the behest of, defense contractors, who supposedly buy Washington politicians’ votes. Anti-defense organizations like POGO have been spreading that propaganda for decades.

Recently, pseudoconservative sites like LibertyNews and the DailyCaller have been spreading that blatant lie too, claiming that the mythical “defense lobby” has essentially bought the votes of those Senators who voted for authorizing strikes on Syria. As “evidence”, they claim that the Senators voting for the strikes on Syria have received 83% more in contributions from defense contractors than Senators voting no.

But if you look beyond the deadlines – and the DailyCaller libelously shouts “WARBUCKS FOR WARMONGERS” – and look at the details, a completely different picture emerges. The defense industry has not bought these Senators votes, and if any “defense lobby” exists in America, it is woefully ineffective and far weaker than other lobbies.

LN and TheDC complain that pro-war-voting Senators have, on average, received $72K each from the defense industry in the last 5 years (2007-2012). Oh my gosh, $72K in five years!

Although LN and the DC want you to think it’s much, it isn’t. It’s peanuts, especially over 5 years ($14,500 per year on average, hardly George Soros money).

But some Senators voting AGAINST strikes on Syria, like Joe Barrasso of Wyoming, have received contributions ABOVE that average from the defense industry: $86K in Barrasso’s case. In fact, by LN’s and the DC’s own standards, even those Senators voting “no” on war have received handsome contributions from the defense industry: $40K on average.

But in reality, neither $86K nor $72K nor $40 K nor even $100K is George Soros money. It’s peanuts, especially over 5 years and especially given how much other industries and lobbies contribute to Washington politicians every election cycle.

Because, you see, when one looks at the defense industry’s TOTAL contributions to politicians, they are meager compared to the scores of millions of dollars that other industries and lobbies dole out.

A full list of all financial contributions to all 535 members of Congress in the 2012 election cycle (therein counted from January 1st, 2011, to December 31st, 2012) is available here. Basically, it says how much money which industry contributed to Washington lawmakers in the last cycle.

A close look at that list reveals just how tiny the defense industry’s muscle is.

The largest contributor sector of the defense industry is the defense aerospace sector: $9,113,892 in contributions. Defense electronic contractors contributed $6,083,951, defense shipbuilders $2,693,281, defense services $1,605,374, and other sectors of the industry no more than $615,014 each.

By comparison, here’s how much other, much more powerful lobbies contributed:

  • Lawyers and law firms contributed $82,383,361.
  • Corporate lawyers and law firms contributed another $7,748,951.
  • Trial lawyers and law firms doled out another $7,589,180.
  • Lobbyists and PR people contributed $25,324,387.
  • Liquor wholesalers contributed $6,595,758.
  • Business services doled out $12,287,113.
  • The Israeli lobby gave Congressional politicians $12,519,563.
  • Democrat- and Republican-leaning groups both contributed over $13 mn per each side. (See here and here.)
  • In the Miscellaneous Business category, General Commerce businesses contributed $15,318,578.
  • Industrial/commercial equipment and materials producers contributed $7,122,304.
  • Restaurants and drinking establishments contributed $7,606,496.
  • Civil servants and public employees doled out $13,004,717.
  • Building trades unions contributed $12,688,265.
  • Women’s issues political groups doled out $18,670,081.
  • In a surprise to nobody, Big Pharma is also a big donor: pharmaceutical manufacturing businesses alone contributed $11,196,254 to Washington politicians last election cycle.
  • Hospital employees contributed $12,349,339.
  • Health professionals dole out big bucks to politicians, too. On MapLight, the biggest donor category of these professionals is “other physician specialists”, contributing $20,220,876 to members of Congress in the last election cycle alone. A separate group, termed “physicians” by MapLight, doled out $19,698,565.  Dentists contributed another $5,668,355.
  • Security brokers and investment companies doled out $24,844,329.
  • Private security and investment firms steered $8,138,283 towards members of Congress.
  • Real estate companies contributed $14,362,151; on top of that, real estate developers and subdividers doled out $13,294,500, and real estate agents contributed another $11,462,900. Other real estate people contributed still further millions of dollars.
  • In the Misc Finance category, investors contributed $10,726,065.
  • Insurance companies, brokers, and agents contributed $14,043,345, and life insurance companies contributed still another $8,749,154.
  • Commercial banks and bank holding companies gave Congressional politicians $16,917,860.
  • Accountants doled out $11,438,703.
  • School and college employees contributed $27,402,329.
  • Book, newspaper, and periodical publishers contributed $9,423,129.
  • Several other industries contributed $6-7 mn each.

And yet, MapLight, LN, and the DC make a lot of noise about Senators receiving $72K on average from the defense industry, when many other industries make contributions measured in MILLIONS each election cycle to each of its favorite politicians!

IN SHORT:

The defense industry is a weak player in Washington and its money politics game. It is a baby chimp compared to the 800-pound gorillas that other industries and lobbies are.

By far the most powerful interest group/lobby in America are lawyers – “ordinary” lawyers and law firms contributed over $82 mn to Congressional politicians in the last election cycle alone. On top of that, corporate, trial, and other lawyers contributed still further dozens of millions of dollars.

School and college employees have the second-biggest financial muscle in politics – they contributed $27,402,329 in the last election cycle. Lobbyists and PR people are third, at $25,324,387 in contributions. Security brokers and investment companies are not not far behind, at $24,844,329. A group termed “other physician specialists” by MapLight is fifth, at $20,220,876. Physicians are sixth, at $19,698,565.

On top of them, there are – as shown above – many, many industries and interest groups which each contributed over $9 mn in 2011-2012 – usually over a dozen million dollars – far more than the aerospace industry – the relatively wealthiest part of the defense industry – could muster. Total contributions from all sectors of the defense industry were at about $21 mn in 2011-2012 – again far behind the contributions of the above-mentioned other sectors, especially the legal/law firm sector which alone contributed over $100 mn to Congressional politicians.

“Ordinary” lawyers and law firms contributed FOUR TIMES as much to Congressional politicians as the entire defense industry! School and college employees (not to mention the entire education sector) and the medical profession both also outperformed the entire defense industry in contributions, and by a wide margin.

Similarly, single-issue PACs advocating a dovish, pacifist foreign policy spent over $600K in the last election cycle, while PACs advocating a strong defense spent a meager $500. Just five hundred bucks.

Want to know why? Because the “military-industrial complex”, which supposedly buys politicians so that they vote for weapon programs the military supposedly doesn’t need and for wars, is a myth. It doesn’t exist and never did, Dwight Eisenhower’s foolish ramblings to the contrary notwithstanding.

And there’s more evidence that the “military-industrial complex” is a myth. Since 2009, when President Obama came into office, defense cuts now totalling over $1.5 TRILLION – over one and a half TRILLION dollars – have been programmed or already implemented. These include:

  • The closure of over 50 weapon programs by Secretary Gates in 2009 and 2010 ($330 bn);
  • The Gates Efficiencies Initiative, which involved cutting spending on everything at the DOD from HQs and generals to weapon programs ($178 bn);
  • The first tier of defense cuts mandated by the Budget Control Act pre-sequestration ($487 bn from FY2012 thru FY2022);
  • The second tier of defense cuts mandated by the BCA, i.e. sequestration ($550 bn, from FY2013 thru FY2022).

In total, this adds up to $1.554 trillion dollars in defense cuts already implemented or programmed to occur thru FY2022 – and there’s no indication they won’t happen, since Congress is utterly unable (or unwilling) to even cancel sequestration, yet alone the previous defense cuts.

And even further, under the cuts currently scheduled (mandated by the BCA), just like during all previous rounds of defense cuts, WEAPON PROGRAMS – the things the defense industry makes money on – are and will be the DOD’s favorite targets, as they are the by far the easiest thing to close. Whenever there are defense cuts, weapons programs and other modernization funds are everyone’s favorite pots of money to raid.

By contrast, Congress has strictly PROHIBITED the DOD from even PROPOSING to close unneeded bases, reform the military’s healthcare and retirement programs (which would involve modestly increasing healthcare plan premiums), or significantly reduce the number of troops.

If there really was a “military-industrial complex”, you would have rarely seen ANY weapon programs closed. Yet, since 2009, over 50 have been killed, and more will probably be targeted for closure in the years to come.

Because there is no “military-industrial complex” in America. It’s a blatant lie.

Shame on those who spread that lie.

When: Monday, October 28th, 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific

Where: Their Finest Hour with Allan Bourdius

What: Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it – or to not repeat the parts that should be. We’re in a solemn hour in the cause of freedom, and yes, we’re only ever one generation away from losing it. Allan Bourdius of the Their Finest Hour blog (theirfinesthour.blogspot.com) brings his conservative/libertarian fusion (“conservatarian”) perspective to the events of the day and contextualizes them with facts and history to arm the forces of liberty to better our communities and our society, open eyes, and win converts – so that one day our children, still with freedom intact, can look back and say of us, their parents: “This was their finest hour.”

Tonight: So, Sister Toldjah is stopping by. If you’ve been around conservatives on Twitter, and haven’t come across Stacey Matthews (@sistertoldjah), then what the heck are you doing? She’ll be talking with Allan tonight about bloggers and harassment, and ObamaCare, and probably Benghazi – because it’s only Monday, and it’s already shaping up to be a really bad week for Obama! “And there was much rejoicing… Yay!”

Obama Hates Black People

You may recall that, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, it became popular for black Americans to quote a certain rap star and say, “George Bush hates black people.” Because blacks in New Orleans were suffering. But the shoe is really on the other foot.

I don’t understand how black Americans can say with a straight face that Obama is for them, not when you have an article such as the one written by Kevin D. Williamson in the National Review Online. The text of his piece shocked even my jaded eyes.

Williamson proves that point that Obama in general and the Democrats in particular really care very little for black Americans. He says, “Fifty years into the Democrats’ declaration of a war on poverty and President Kennedy’s first executive order for affirmative action, while spending $300 million a year on worthless diversity workshops and singing endless verses of ‘We Shall Overcome,’ after enduring endless posturing from Barack Obama and the moral preening of his admirers, that is what black American families have to show for themselves: an average household net worth of $4,955. The average white household in these United States has a net worth of $110,729. Black Americans’ median net worth is less than 5 percent that of white Americans.”

Read that again and really take it in. We have a large population in this country kept perpetually poor by political design or by choice, and I’m not sure which is worse, or a greater insult to the idea of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. How can you pursue when you barely have enough to survive?

Williamson continues: “Everywhere it has been tried, the Democrats’ dependency agenda has been a social and economic catastrophe for black Americans — and a full-employment program for Democratic apparatchiks. This is not a conspiracy — it’s right out there in the open, every time a Democratic politician knows that he can count on 90 percent of the black vote without lifting a finger, winning the opportunity to add four more years to the 50 years of broken promises Democrats have made to black Americans, who lag their fellow countrymen on practically every social indicator. ‘These Negroes,’ said alleged civil-rights hero Lyndon Baines Johnson, ‘they’re getting pretty uppity these days, and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before: the political pull to back up their uppity-ness. We’ve got to give them a little something — just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.’ So far, the LBJ plan seems to be working perfectly.”

This is nothing less than an effort on the part of Democrats to keep a class of people so tied to their tethers that they could never break free and discover their own potential. Of course, that assumes black Americans indeed want to do that, and go ahead and call me a racist, but I don’t see a lot of that happening here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I see a lot of the opposite. There are a few that have risen above, but they still cow tow to the left’s party line. I don’t know a single black person that didn’t vote for Obama. “Because it’s time,” they say, whatever that means.

Has there ever a greater example of cutting off your nose to spite your face? I don’t think so. Yet generations of blacks have been convinced that it’s the only way to be taken seriously, and I shudder to think what would happen if they suddenly switched sides and let the Republicans have a go. Probably not much, thanks to wussies like Boehner, McCain, Rubio, et al. One can hope that should this country have a chance to return to real economic prosperity that the blacks would not only take advantage, but prosper with the rest of us. That’s what the United States is all about, everybody getting a shot at the gold. Instead we have a class of people who think that they’re only value is as a victim, waiting for a hand out, it’s everybody else’s fault, etc., etc., and George Bush hates black people.

If Obama cared so much about blacks, the Washington Post would not report that black unemployment is sky high. Quote: “….the rate for adult black men, those 20 years and older, jumped to 14 percent last month. That’s up from 13.5 percent in August and only slightly below year-ago levels. It also contrasts with 6.1 percent unemployment for white men in that same age group.”

Fourteen percent. That’s a disgrace. This is not the America I want. This is not the America we could have. Instead of trying to raise a segment of the population out of the gutter, we give them free cell phones and food stamps.

Because it’s time.

As long as we have a class of perpetual victims, this is the America we get. Fifty years and counting. I don’t see it turning around.

Teach your Children well?

From a young age and throughout the years I have heard people say, “teach your children well, you don’t want to raise little monsters, do you?”

These and other comments were about molding and shaping children at an early age. The Bible says “train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” I guess it’s all about training our children, right? Right!

In Germany, Hitler knew this to be paramount to his success in being the “supreme ruler,” dictator, and “Grand PooBah” so much so that he dictated what would be taught in every school and changed the curriculum to reflect the superiority of the Arian race and people.

At the age of 10 they were grouped by age and taught “German Patriotism”. No big deal right? They were molded and shaped until they were 18 and then inducted into the German Army. After the age of 10 they were not allowed to engage in any outside activities aside from their “group.” They were taught good work habits and ethics, and the learning day had much to do with the great Leader known as Hitler and the Nazi party (socialist).

These kids became so loyal to Hitler and the party that they would turn in their own parents for any anti Hitler or anti-party comments. Party indoctrination was so deep that when Hitler declared the Jews were the cause of the German woes, it was not hard to get the Hitler youth to turn on them. You don’t kill that many people, the way they were killed, without brainwashing the youth. They grew into soldiers that carried out the party’s orders without question because they trusted their leader.

Now, let’s look at today. We have education being more and more dictated by liberal America. Many elementary and high school texts have rewritten history to twist the things we hold sacred into something wrong and inhumane.

Recently an elementary school district taught and tested the kids on the evil conqueror, Christopher Columbus, and the millions of Indians (yes, millions) that he and his people slaughtered. If that’s true, why do we “celebrate” Thanksgiving? (That’s just wrong on so many levels.) The curriculum went on to ask the kids what questions they would ask him at his trial.

Textbooks are being changed to down play the Judeo/Christian influence on this nation’s history. Some history books emphasize that our forefathers came her to get away from religion, rather than the actual fact that they came here to practice their own religion and worship God the way they chose.

I guess, based on these new history books, the Pilgrims must have been very confused because they had the first Thanksgiving to actually offer thanks to the Almighty (not mother earth) for all He had given them.

Jefferson must have also been very confused because he used the congressional meeting house to have Sunday service, government paid and maintained, with the Marine Band playing hymns in the government building!

Now, our elementary school kids are learning about how bad these men were because they owned slaves. They had their faults, and it’s appropriate to teach about the wrongs of slavery, but not to the exclusion of the rest of the story. How about teaching our kids about the selfless dedication they had to the freedom of the American people and that what they sacrificed was much more than a new iPod or Sunday football game?

Then there are our institutions of higher learning that seem to teach more about sexual pleasure and how to get as much from the government as possible than they teach about, science, math, and technology, as evidenced by our drop in world standing in these areas.

Numerous college campuses now have “Sex Week.” Many liberals justify this by saying it’s just “part of the college experience” and it helps the kids to blow off a little steam. I highly doubt that Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, and Jonas Salk would attribute their genius to their pursuit of sex and sexual knowledge in college! More and more colleges have what boils down to “how to have better sex” classes, complete with visual aids, presentations, and nothing left to the imagination. One college provides an introductory comic book to incoming freshmen to help them exploring their “erotic self” and even their “homosexual self.” Really? What if I have no homosexual self or can’t find it. Do I fail?

Politically, students on campuses are being encouraged to embrace communism and socialism and shun conservative values, speakers and teachers.

We are becoming the laughing stock of the world, with our failed economic policies, our mismanaged healthcare law and rollout, and our failing school systems.

Hitler’s lesson was on target. If you get the youth, you have the country. In other words, he trained the youth in the way he wanted them to go and eventually had total control.

Today the progressive left is training up the youth in the way they want to see this country grow and have they’ve been doing so for many years. Take a look around at what’s happening to in our country.
We are seeing the fruits of their efforts now. And we are in a heap of hurt as a nation and a people.

Who Are The Real Cronies And Fascists?

So often, in such a politically divided system, such as ours, in The United States, incendiary words such as Fascist, Socialist etc. are, routinely, tossed around, simply because one is opposed to a Politician, and their policies. I think it is, also, commonly accepted, throughout our population that, a Socialist or Fascist is synonymous with a murderous thug. Certainly, we have seen, throughout The 20th Century, with people like Adoph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, and Benito Mussolini, that was the case; but, the truth is, both Socialism and Fascism are nothing more then economic systems, which lends themselves very well to those thugs who are predisposed to violence. Simply put, because, such systems centralize economic Power into the hands of a few, who, at the same time, also have the Power of Government, to make Laws and Regulations.

The Spenders in Washington are the “Terrorists,” Not the Conservatives!

There was a time when it was thought to be prudent to not spend beyond one’s means; a time when frugality was a desirable trait, and when such discipline and restraint constituted a man or woman of wisdom in financial affairs. Judging from the predictable reaction to the storyline fed by the mainstream media regarding fiscal policy in our nation’s capital, such fiscal discipline no longer is perceived as wise, but as extremist and radical.

And apparently there’s an ancillary postulate that accompanies that conclusion; that those who desire to not inflict harm on the nation due to bad government regulation fall under the same broad definitional brush of extremism and radicalism.

RAMclrFNL-022212-worst-IBD.jpg.cms_Just since 2006, the last year the U.S. government had a budget passed by both congressional chambers and signed by a president, government debt has shot from $6.7 trillion, to over $17 trillion. The largest segment of that spending occurred over the past five years with four consecutive years of $1 trillion deficits. Our government has been spending 60% more than it’s been collecting in tax receipts.

Those figures do not even begin to address our long-term debt due to non-discretionary entitlement programs. According to the General Accounting Office’s (GAO) 2012 annual report, their most recent which was issued nearly one year ago, unfunded debt including Social Security and Medicare was $70.7 trillion, an increase of 8% over 2011 levels. Our national debt increases by an estimated $8.2 million per minute, and about $350 billion per month.

The GAO was explicit in its warning to the policy makers about our spending. They said in the very first paragraph, “GAO’s simulations continue to show escalating levels of debt that illustrate that the long-term fiscal outlook remains unsustainable.”

For those who may have difficulty grasping the gravity of the word “unsustainable,” let’s clarify the term. That means it is “not able to be maintained at the current rate or level.” That it is “not able to be upheld or defended.”

Former Comptroller General of the United States, David M. Walker, has been sounding the clarion call of economic disaster for the nation if spending is not reined in, and politicians refuse to deal with fiscal realities of unabated spending. He describes America as a “sinking ship” in a sea of our own debt. He points out that, “The US ranks near the bottom of developed global economies in terms of financial stability and will stay there unless it addresses its burgeoning debt problems,” based on the Sovereign Fiscal Responsibility Index.

“We think it is important for the American people to understand where the United States is as compared to other countries with regard to fiscal responsibility and sustainability,” Walker said in a CNBC interview recently. He predicts that the country is rapidly heading towards a debt crisis that could come within the next few years if we continue on our present course.

Those are the facts, at least a small glimpse at our dismal fiscal reality. And yet, when facing another massively expensive entitlement, and a debt limit, and a government “shutdown” over spending issues, the press and their chorus of ideologically-compliant sycophants across the land excoriate the one group of politicians that sees the threat of our current reality!

The fiscal terrorists are not those in the House, who out of conscience and their commitment to their voters refuse to budge on spending without fiscal reform. The biggest terrorist threat to the nation are those who vote perfunctorily to increase our debt, continue to spend beyond our means, and refuse to say no to new spending programs that threaten to expedite the collapse of the nation from debt implosion! They are destroying the nation minute by minute, and debt limit increase by debt limit increase, by continuing our unsustainable spending trajectory with no attempt at addressing it.

How idiotic it is when the mainstream media rejoices when a debt limit, regardless of how temporary, is increased. When the government resumes full operations without any substantive assessment of our unsustainable mountain of debt, as identified by the General Accounting Office! And how idiotic it is when a majority of the American public applauds the resumption of our unsustainable course of debt accrual, with no apparent concern for the perpetuity of the republic!

The president is claiming credit for a slight deficit reduction this past year. That’s sublimely ironic considering it happened because of an idea he floated, and then denounced, and become enacted as a 5% reduction in spending known as the sequester.

The sequester has made a slight difference in the trajectory of our mountain of debt, but not nearly enough. If the nation is to survive financially, a change of course and reassessment of our spending priorities is critical. Our role is to be an informed electorate, and if we love America, support candidates with a commitment to saving the nation from the spendthrift politicians in control now.

The Lies of Obamacare

 David Letterman has his top ten list so I am having my top 6 list of Obamacare lies starting with No.6 and working down to No. 1. Here we go:

6) Obamcare is a website where you can go and compare and purchase healthcare plans just like you would buy a TV on Amazon. (Tell that to the millions who have  had trouble logging on).

5) The plan I’m proposing will reduce the deficit by 4 trillion dollars over the long term. (He’s already doubled the debt and deficit and has spent more than all the presidents put together from Washington to Bush. We are now at 17 trillion).

4) The plan I’m proposing will cost 900 billion (It’s already almost two trillion with a capital ’T’ and rising).

3) I want to lower premiums by $2500 per family (Families are seeing their premiums rise as much as $7000 for a family of four).

2) If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.(Health plans are dropping doctors by the thousands. Obamcare’s plan calls for eventually laying off 30,000 doctors out of the 90,000 we have).

And the No. 1 lie about Obamcare is: If you like your healthcare plan you can keep your healthcare plan ( Obama has said he prefers single payer where we all are responsible to the government which is what Obamcare is all about. It’s not about healthcare, but about control).

Recently on Sean Hannity’s TV show, Congressman Mike Rogers of Michigan said “Obamcare is ruining insurance for 85% of the people who have it in favor of 15% of the people who don’t.” He is so right.

Bill O’Reilly has it right when he said recently, “People don’t care if it doesn’t concern them. Guns to the Mexican cartels no big deal, four people assasinated in Benghazi,no big deal, but Obamacare affects everyone so now they are concerned.”

Now everyone is unhappy as more and more people get cancellations than signed up for Obamacare. Even liberals are finally waking up. Democrat strategist Kirsten Powers (whom I’ve noticed is slowly coming around) had her insurance dropped and found out she has to spend $300 more for the same deductible in another company.

We spent $684 million dollars of taxpayer money for something that doesn’t work. They never did security checks on it and personal information can be revealed. Even creators of it admitted they can’t log into it. Sean Hannity recently had a CEO of a software company on his show who said he could do the same thing and create a website for 1 million dollars. Obamcare is causing people to lose their jobs as companies layoff and cut back to save expenses and the cost of Obamcare. The rhetoric versus the reality doesn’t match. The people were promised one thing and they are not getting it. They were grossly irresponsible with our money. As Ray Stevens says in his song ‘We the People’,  “I don’t think it’s one bit funny/how they take so much of our money/ and do things with it I don’t understand.”

Speaking of Sean Hannity, Obama said you can call the 800 number for Obamcare and register there so Sean did just that on his radio show. The woman who answered was very polite and courteous and truthful and answered all his questions to his satisfaction. Because she spoke with him she was fired. Sean checked with his accountant and is gifting her $13,000 for her and $13,000 for her son bringing a total of $26,000 which was her yearly salary. Sean also set up a website for a job for her . He also had her on his TV show last night. She got hundreds of offers and is taking one. Sean is very generous that way and has helped people in the past. He had the scholarship fund with Oliver North for kids whose parents were killed in wars. That’s more than Obama would do.
