A Leopard Cannot Change Its Spots, Nor Can A Progressive

My father told me many years ago that “people are what they are,” that is such a true statement. All people have their own belief system, we all believe what we want to believe, the things that make sense to us. But, there are certain people in this world that will not change their views no matter how wrong they actually are, enter the Progressives.

For those of you who might not know, New York City (my hometown) has elected a communist for a Mayor. I am not slinging arrows here, he readily admits what he is and did so during his campaign, he even honeymooned in Cuba, what does that tell you, New York has surely fallen since I grew-up and lived there.

Recently in the New York Post, there was a story about how few minorities are getting into specialized schools, the schools that you must pass an entrance exam to get into. It seems that more black and Hispanic students took the entrance exam to get into the city’s elite high schools this year, but their pass rates were as dismal as ever, said officials. Of the 5,096 students accepted by eight specialized schools, just 5  percent were black and 7 percent were Hispanic.

Now, what does Mayor De Blasio think we should do about this? Well, like all other Liberal-Progressives, he wants to lower standards, (Sounds like a President we all know.) You see to the Liberal-Progressives, the only “fair” thing to do is make the test easier so everyone can get into these schools, God forbid he should find a way to get these kids to study more. Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña said the administration would make changes. “We must do more to reflect the diversity of our city in our top-tier schools and we are committed to doing just that.”  Of course to the Liberal-Progressives it does not matter if those kids qualify for those schools, as long as they are enrolled, politicians think they are doing their job, the show must go on.

Even parents realize that the Mayor is totally wrong in his assessment. “Leave the exam alone and help our students meet the standards. The solution is to improve the elementary and middle schools in neighborhoods of color so the students can perform and pass the exam,” said Mona Davids, head of the New York City Parents Union. Why don’t we elect people like this parent to public office, at least she has common sense, something those Liberal-Progressives seem to lack.

The Presidents big agenda right now is income inequality, he believes the top is making too much and the lower is making too little. Naturally, he wants to lower people at the top, instead of finding a way to raise the people at the lower end, typical, very typical.

It has been the agenda for the Democratic Party for too long to punish the rich, that is the only way that we can see true income equality in this country. The Democratic Party has done nothing but demoralize the American spirit in this country piece by piece. Back in 2010 in his speech to a Quincy, Illinois audience about Wall Street reform, Obama said, “We’re not, we’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s “fairly” earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”

Obama knows when people have made enough money, so when that time comes, he knows that’s the time to start taking it from them and giving it to people who don’t have any, that seems only fair. Obama and  Mayor De Blasio are cut from the same hunk of wood, Progressivism, it works like the Vulcan mind meld. Only they know what is fair and only they know how to achieve it, no matter how much common sense says otherwise.

Progressivism: “Every step we take towards making the state our caretaker of our lives, by that much we move toward making the state our master.” Dwight D. Eisenhower.

When Will Democrats Wake Up

How out of touch are the Democrats? It seems to me that they are losing on every front and are grasping at straws, I mean come on, staying up all night to talk about an imaginary threat like climate change, is pushing the envelope. Throughout the night, I am willing to wager that there was more hot air in the chamber, then circulating in our atmosphere.

Senator Mitch McConnell said that the talkathon amounted to “30 hours of excuses” from senators who think it’s OK that “families are losing work because of government attacks on the coal industry.”  You would think that with 74% of the people in this country believing that we are still in a recession, (even though it supposedly ended five years ago) that the Democrats would concentrate on that. Barbara Boxer said.  “The American people are listening,” “They care.” She added that the event should “wake up Congress to the dangers of climate change.” Now, that’s pretty funny, considering that when surveyed about the twenty most important things facing our country, climate change came in at nineteen, I guess not that many people care.

92 million people are out of work, yet the Democrats push policies and agendas that destroy jobs instead of creating them. We have a president who is entering his sixth year in office and still has no clue how to create a job. We have a president who does more to stifle job creation than create them, but hey America, you voted him in office, not me.

In May of 2007 then-House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was critical of the nationwide price of gas reaching a $3.07 average and squarely placed the blame on the Bush administration.“Drivers are paying a heavy price for the Bush administration’s failure to enact a comprehensive energy strategy,” Pelosi said. “Years of Bush Administration’s policies that have favored big oil over the consumers have resulted in record dependence on foreign oil, leaving American families and businesses to pay even higher prices.”Pelsoi continued, “This Congress, under the Democratic leadership, is working to make up for years of inaction, taking America in a new direction that helps bring down the cost of gas and promotes energy independence. Energy independence is essential, essential to reducing the price at the pump.”

When Obama first took office, gas was $1.67 a gallon, it is now north of $3.50, where is Pelosi’s big mouth now? Why isn’t she screaming about the high gas prices under this president? For a party that says they are for the little guy, the Democrats seem to push policies that hurt them. High gas prices hurt the poor more than anyone else, yet the poor keep voting Democrat, even though all the Democrats do, are make promises but never deliver on them.

The earth has been warming and cooling since it began and will continue to do so, that is what it is supposed to do, it’s natural. Even when faced with reality, Democrats will never admit they are wrong. Who can forget the ship full of researchers who were stuck in the ice while going to the Antarctica to prove global warming. They went there to document global warming and shrinking polar ice caps, but  they desperately had to wait for the US Coast Guard to rescue their ship after it got stuck in record-breaking Antarctic ice.

You know what, on second thought, forget the title of this article, let the Democrats sleep, hopefully they will turn into Rip Van Winkle and sleep for twenty years, maybe then we can get this country back on track.

What The Hell Is Going On Here?

I can’t tell you how many times I sat in front of the TV shouting “WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON IN THIS COUNTRY,” and it seems I find myself saying that more and more. We are supposed to be a nation of laws, when any public official takes office, they take a pledge to uphold the Constitution and the laws of the land.  U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said recently that state attorneys general are not forced to defend laws in their states that ban same-sex marriage if they believe it to be unconstitutional. A nation of laws no more.

Colorado Attorney General John W. Suthers, R-Colo., voiced his opposition to Holder in a Washington Post editorial recently.“Depending on one’s view of the laws in question, such a ‘litigation veto’ may, in the short term, be a terrific thing; an unpopular law is defended and the attorney general can take credit. But in the longer term, this practice corrodes our system of checks and balances. Public belief in the power of democracy and ultimately the moral and legal authority on which attorneys general must depend,” These state laws are often state constitutional provisions or laws enacted by referendum (people voting directly at the polls), so some find it especially anti-democratic for a state Attorney General not to defend them.

The job of law enforcement is to enforce laws, if the laws are unpopular than change them, but you cannot just disobey them because you don’t agree with them. Not only is our top law enforcer a lawbreaker, but it seems that he is also a racist. The Department of Justice wants schools to directly consider race when disciplining students, taking care to ensure that some races are not punished more often than others, even if students of certain races misbehave more often.

Eric Holder’s DOJ co-wrote a letter with the Department of Education, and sent it to public schools across the country recently. First among its decrees: Schools should not strive to treat all races the same; rather, they should treat the races differently, levying weaker punishments when necessary, in order to effect equal outcomes among students of all races.

If schools are pressured to get their numbers right in this area, they will either start disciplining students who shouldn’t be or, more likely, will not discipline some students who ought to be. If unruly students are not disciplined, the kids who will lose out the most will be well-behaved students in classes with undisciplined classmates. According to the DOJ if a teacher disciplines a white student twice, that teacher can only discipline a black student twice, even though the black student misbehaved six times.

Joe Hicks, a member of the Project 21 (The National Leadership Network of Black Conservatives,) says the attorney general is obsessed with racism. “My view of Eric Holder is that he is most racialized and the most ideological attorney general I think this nation has seen at least in the modern era,” he offers. “So here’s a man who constantly weighs in on the issues – and always weighs in from a racial aspect that black kids are being mistreated.”

Robert Laurie, wrote in The Canada Free Press – I’m pretty sure that Eric
Holder begins each and every day with a meeting where he and his team sit around brainstorming new ways to call Americans racist. If you support the 2nd Amendment, you’re a racist. If you want to enforce the nation’s borders, you’re a racist. If you favor voter ID laws, you’re a racist. If you think it’s criminal to run guns to Mexico, you’re a racist.

Let’s face it, the Left is at the point where whenever someone disagrees with them, they have to be a racist, to the people on the left, there can be no other explanation. How long are people going to put up with this? If someone on the Right said that we should not strive to treat all races the same; rather, they should treat the races differently, the media would have been all over them calling them racists remarks, yet we have an AG who not only said it, but truly believes it.

Our top law enforcement officer is a lawbreaker and a racist; well what can we expect, when he gets his marching orders from the lawbreaker-in-chief himself, Obama.

The Despicable Truth About Democrats

I understand the importance of being a team player, I also believe that loyalty is the best quality a person can have and I respect it. However, there has to be a point where you say I cannot backup or support a person anymore because it is the wrong thing to do and it is harming too many people, the case in point is called Obama-Care.

Stevie Wonder can see that Obama-Care is a big disaster, yet Democrats refuse to admit that it was nothing but a mistake and continue to push it on the American people. They voted on a bill that no one took the time to read, and I am willing to bet that they still have not taken the time to read it.

Just recently, a Michigan cancer patient by the name of Julie Boonstra, who was diagnosed five years ago with leukemia was under attack by Michigan Rep. Gary Peters for appearing in an ad criticizing Obama-Care. It seems Rep. Gary Peters, had his campaign lawyers write to Michigan TV stations, effectively warning that their FCC licenses could be at risk if they continue to criticize Obama-Care, stating that the ad and Ms. Boonstra were lying.

Ms. Boonstra said, “Under my old policy, I knew what I could afford every single month because I wasn’t hit with extra charges. Now I don’t know what I have to pay month to month,” she said. “Leukemia tests are extremely expensive.”

Millions of people have lost their insurance and millions have seen their premiums go up, while millions more have seen their deductibles go through the roof, yet the Democrats still have the audacity to call it the Affordable Care Act. The law was shoved down the throats of the American people with the claim that it will help the 40 million uninsured people get insurance, while the CBO says that 30 million people will still be uninsured years after it is implemented.

The American people are being taken for a ride, Obama has lied, his administration has lied and the Democrats have lied, why is there no outcry? Obama-Care, Benghazi, IRS, NSA all lies by Obama and his administration and the rest of the Democrats just follow like sheep. Four Americans died in the Benghazi attack, yet the Democrats say there is no scandal there and try to sweep it under the rug, but they attack Governor Christie on a daily basis because of a traffic jam on the George Washington Bridge, where are their priorities?

Ms. Boonstra said, “I am not lying. … I was lied to.” Well, I think she also speaks for the rest of the country, why can’t the Democrats admit that they were wrong? Loyalty is a great quality, but there comes a time when the Democrats have to face reality, Obama is a failed president with failed policies and what he is doing is harming America.

When All Else Fails Use Racism

Once again, we see the Liberal mind at work; it seems the old standby of the Liberal/Progressive strikes again, RACISM. The Volkswagen plant employees in Chattanooga voted 712 to 626 against joining the United Auto Workers Union, but Timothy Noah, a contributing writer for MSNBC, saw something that no one else did, by suggesting that race was a factor in a recent vote by Tennessee autoworkers against unionization. “The opposition, I gather, portrayed this as a kind of Northern invasion, a re-fighting of the Civil War. Apparently there are not a lot of black employees in this particular plant, and so that kind of – waving the Confederate flag – was an effective strategy,” said Noah.

When are they going to give this a rest? If things do not go their way, they automatically shout racism, the only people who believe that race played a part, are the simple-minded Liberals who see a racist behind every tree. Ann Coulter said it best “There are two groups in this country who are obsessed with race, Skin Heads and Liberals.”

During a TV interview, Mike Jarvis, a VW worker and who voted against being unionized, said, if the Union came in he would be getting a three dollar an hour pay cut. The Tennessee workers were worried about their jobs going to Mexico which is a real possibility. Volkswagen has $7 million set aside for development in our hemisphere but most of it is slated for Mexico. Mexican workers make one-sixth to one-seventh less and the quality is the same as U.S. workers.

After we bailed out GM and Chrysler, which is now Fiat, the two companies and Ford sent business to Mexico where 3 million cars are made a year. That number is expected to increase 38% by 2016 with all foreign companies adding plants there. Mexico is now the 8th largest car maker.

Let’s face it, unions are a dying breed in this country, at least in the private sector. Unions have been going downhill for about fifty years. There was a time when almost 35% of all workers on private payrolls were union members, by 2009 it had fallen to 7.2%. In the 19th and 20th centuries, labor unions helped establish a middle class, ensured professional standards for some industries, and secured access for all workers to good benefits. There was a time in this country when we needed unions, but that day is long gone.

And then there is this from a Watchdog group:

Defending workers’ rights is a noble mission. But sometimes labor unions take it too far. Here are some of our favorite examples of labor union contracts “gone wild.”

1) Three strikes and you’re still not out. Believe it or not, an overly generous clause slipped into the teacher Master Agreement in 1997, basically states that Bay City School Teachers (Michigan) can be caught drunk at work up to five times before they get sacked.

In Florida, a teacher who showed up to class plastered and then started “dirty dancing” with her students may end up teaching again, thanks to her union’s excellent negotiating skills.

Bay City School teachers (again in Michigan) managed to negotiate a union contract where they could be caught in possession of, or under the influence of, drugs three times before they lost their job.

2). No shows at work, Dozens of Miami-Dade County employees often don’t bother to show up for work, and instead, opt to spend their time working as union reps, on the taxpayers’ dime. County Commissioner Esteban Bovo told Florida Watchdog this is costing taxpayers anywhere from $12 million to $24 million annually.

Let’s face it, Unions have grown too big and too powerful in this country, they have become big bullies and the people are starting to realize it. I know by writing this Liberals will call me a racist, because that is the only thing they know. You know what, me and plenty of others just don’t care anymore, it’s getting really old and the race card just don’t cut it anymore.

Obama And The Minimum Wage

Recently, Obama made good on his pledge and took pen in hand and issued an executive action to raise the minimum wage for government workers to $10.10 an hour. Obama and the Democrats made it sound like a big deal, as if they were doing such a noble deed, when in fact, it only effects a handful of workers employed by the government. Obama’s real motive was to get the congress to pass a law raising the federal minimum wage, even though most economists agree that raising the minimum wage in a slow economy will hurt job creation.

Let me be up-front and say I am not in favor of a minimum wage, I believe the free market should dictate, for instance; most people working at McDonalds in my state of Florida are probably making the minimum wage of $7.79 an hour, while a person working at McDonalds in North Dakota is making over $17.00 an hour, where the minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. Why is there such a difference in wages between the two states? There is an old law that is known as supply and demand, which works better than any government interference.

Let’s say I have a new business, and I can really use two people to work for me, but I can only afford to pay $10.00 an hour, is it better to hire two people at $5.00 an hour, or hire one person and leave the other person without a job? I am sure this can be debated for hours and both sides can bring up valid points, but the bottom line is this, one person is without a job. So, what happens when there is a minimum wage? There are some jobs that are only worth a certain amount of money. I don’t think it’s worth paying somebody $15 an hour to come and sweep the floors, it’s just not worth it for me to pay that kind of money, so I wind up doing it myself and another person is out of work.

According to the model shown in nearly all introductory textbooks on economics, increasing the minimum wage decreases the employment of minimum-wage workers. One such textbook says:

If a higher minimum wage increases the wage rates of unskilled workers above the level that would be established by market forces, the quantity of unskilled workers employed will fall. The minimum wage will price the services of the least productive (and therefore lowest-wage) workers out of the market. The direct results of minimum wage legislation are clearly mixed. Some workers, most likely those whose previous wages were closest to the minimum, will enjoy higher wages. This is known as the “ripple effect”. The ripple effect shows that when you increase the minimum wage the wages of all others will consequently increase due the need for relativity. Others, particularly those with the lowest prelegislation wage rates, will be unable to find work. They will be pushed into the ranks of the unemployed or out of the labor force. Some argue that by increasing the federal minimum wage, however, the economy will be adversely affected due to small businesses not being able to keep up with the need to subsequently increase all workers wages.

Obama does not seem to understand, he can raise the minimum wage to $30.00 an hour, but if there are no jobs, what good does it do? Obama and the Democrats love to expand government give away programs and raise the minimum wage, but one thing they do not seem to comprehend; we need jobs in this country, why don’t they focus on that?

It is easy to see what is coming down the road, technology is advancing so fast that machines are doing things better, faster and cheaper than a human can; it is going to get to the point that wages are going to get too high for an employer to afford, so they will all lose their jobs and be replaced by machines, many jobs are already being shipped overseas because of labor costs.

You know, I remember seeing that in all the science fiction movies, men being replaced by machines, but it won’t be fiction for long.

As I was writing this, Glenn Beck had something interesting to say about the minimum wage. See here.

Hey Alan Colmes I read Your Book

Mr. Colmes came out with a book titled, “Thank The Liberals For Saving America” I immediately thought it was a book of humor and fantasy, I mean come on, the title alone started to make me laugh. The title should be Thank The Liberals For Destroying America. Any sane thinking person knows that it is the Liberals that are running this country into the ground, so how could I think otherwise that it was a humorous read, so I decided to check it out.

After finding the book on Amazon, I clicked it so that I could browse a few pages, as I read, I found that I was correct, it seemed to be a very humorous book, and it seemed to me it was also a book of fantasy. I said to myself, if the first few pages are like this I have to find out what other bits of bull Mr. Colmes has sprinkled through those pages. But there was no way I was going to pay $15.00, there isn’t a Liberal alive that has anything to say that is worth $15.00, so I saw they had a used one (one of many I might add) for one cent, so that is the one I went with. With the shipping charge at $3.99, I was into this book for $4.00, I had second thoughts, but I said what the hell. I’m glad it came in plain brown packaging, so my neighbors couldn’t see what I ordered.

Throughout the pages of my book my intention is to try to make some sense of Mr. Colmes and his words of twisted logic and fantasy. Alas, I cannot correct everything in his book, if I did, my book would be longer than War And Peace, so I just go through it and touch on some things that need to be said. I am sure it is not Mr. Colmes intention to mislead his readers, he truly believes in what he is saying, but that is the sad part.

Obama, The New Bernie Madoff

At another boring State Of The Union address last week, Obama made another attempt at getting into the pockets of the American people. It is not enough that the Government taxes everything under the sun, now Obama has come-up with a plan that supposedly will make Americans just want to hand over our money to the Government.

To better enable Americans to save for retirement, Obama said he would order a new starter savings plan called My-RA geared at low-income households. The My-Ra account would function like a Roth IRA, allowing savers to put in after-tax money that would then grow tax-free. Now, on the surface that sounds pretty good, but, I have to ask you, after the disastrous Obama-Care roll out, does anyone actually trust the Government to do anything right?

Let me point something out to Mr. Obama, after five years of his so-called leadership, the poor have gotten poorer, people are having a hard time just surviving day to day, what makes him think they have any spare money to give to the Government? Mr. Obama, why don’t you concentrate on what you promised the American people five years ago, creating jobs and fixing our economy, it seems you try to do everything else except what the country really needs?

People who are now investing in a traditional IRA have their money invested in a variety of different platforms, but unlike traditional Roth IRAs, the accounts will solely invest in government savings bonds. I don’t know about you, but I would not give my money to a Government that is drowning in debt and cannot manage its own spending habits.

Obama has the nerve to ask the American people to invest in a Government that has lost billions of dollars in failed green energy companies. What about the Governments investment in the automobile industry, I think they lost somewhere in the neighborhood of ten billion dollars on that one alone. Let us not forget the billions wasted every year on senseless projects like the shrimp on the treadmill. How can we forget the IRS spending tens of thousands of dollars on stupid parody videos of Gilligans Island and Star Trek and we are expected to trust the Government with our hard-earned money?

Americans have so many different ways to invest, we do not need government. There are 401k’s, IRA’s, Roth IRA’s, there are tons of banks around, yet Obama thinks it is necessary to have a government run savings vehicle, which will pay a much lower rate of return I might add. Does anyone really want the IRS to have more oversight into our lives?

While President Obama tried to see the plan as a safe and secure bet for our nation’s retired population, the introduction of the My-RA essentially confirms the notion that the U.S. government can longer find anyone to lend them money. What can an investor in Obama’s new My-Ra expect in return? 1% maybe 2%, why, that doesn’t even keep up with inflation, nice try Obama, but not for me.

Mans Law Vs. Natures Law

Recently on the Glenn Beck program, Glenn went through the differences between man’s law and natures law, does anyone know the difference, I didn’t. We as a people are so confined by man’s law, that we completely forget about natures law and we think that we are a free people, think again, read the transcript.

Man’s laws, nature’s law. What is nature’s law? Nature’s law is anything that happens in nature. I have a right to defend myself. Why? Bears do, you know? Nobody feels bad – I feel bad for somebody who, you know, thinks they have a right to go up to a baby seal and take a club and beat them to death just for sport, just for fun. You don’t have a right to do that because nature, it doesn’t happen that way. No other animal just beats something to death and just like ha ha. That’s not nature’s law. That evil.

However, do you feel bad for the person that goes, and they’re going to try to like, I’m just going to go, and they’re fully aware, they have their senses, and they go, I want to go and just cuddle the kitty cat, and it’s a lion, and the lion eats them? Nope, lion has a right to defend itself. The lion feels there’s a threat, he’s going to eat you. That is nature’s law.

Man’s law is different. Man’s law has never been what America is about. Man’s law is you must – these are the new ones now – you must raise your child the way the state says not even towards common sense. They can come into your house now, if you have had your child draw a picture of you with a gun, the state sees that and says wait a minute, wait a minute, and they knock on your door. What are you going to say to them?

Yeah, so what, my kid drew a picture of me with a gun? We go hunting. That’s not what the state does. The state says we have to now see what’s going on in your house. They have a right to come into your house. Man does not have a right to raise his children as he sees fit unless the state says it’s okay.

You only have insurance if the state approves. When the president said if you have insurance you like, you can keep it, no, what he meant was if you have insurance he likes, the system likes, the state likes, then you can keep it.

You don’t have a right to use the light bulbs or anything else. You don’t have a right to drive an old car if they don’t say it’s not safe. It’s not safe, not for other people, for you. It’s blowing too much blue smoke. It has too much miles per gallon, whatever. They have a right to say you’re not going to do it – hmm, okay.

You can’t fish without a license. You can’t hunt without a license. You can’t plant food on your own property unless the state says you can do it. There is no natural law that says that. If you have a plot of land, you can plant food there. In fact, I would say nature’s law goes a step further. I can plant food wherever I want, Jack.

I mean, why did the Indians sell us stuff? Do you know the Indians, don’t feel bad for the Indians. They sold us Manhattan for beads. Really? Really? Don’t feel bad for them. They were mocking us. They made fun of us. They were going back to their tribes, and they were like these guys think we own this land. We don’t own this land. That’s nature’s law. Nobody owns the land. We are stewards of the land. But you can’t fish, you can’t plant foot unless the state says so.

You can’t feed somebody who is hungry unless the state says and gives you a permit. That’s man’s law. That’s insanity. That is the end of civilization time and time again, okay? That’s where we are. Here is where we used to be, somewhat. We were never perfect, but this is what we were based on, and the idea was to get closer to this. We’ve lost all of this.

Natures law, again, you have a right to defend yourself because so does the lion. If the lion is afraid, he has a right to kill you. So do you. You have a right to raise your child. Your child is born to you. That’s blood of my blood, flesh of my flesh, not people in Washington. I have a right to raise my child as I see fit. Now, we have a responsibility if something is…I mean, if I’m beating my child in public or whatever, my kid shows up with black eyes all the time, yeah, we probably should as neighbors look in and say hey, dude, what’s going on?

I have a right to eat all the trans fats I can get into a 32-ounce cup, a 64, a 154 million-ounce cup. I can eat whatever I want. Do you understand why people who have cancer and have been given two months to live are not allowed to have experimental therapies? I don’t, because you can’t explain that one to me. It’s my body. I’m dying. I choose, I know it, I choose to put this in my body. If I am of sound mind, get the hell out of my way. Nature’s law tells me I can do that. Nope.

I have a right to live free. See, what liberty means, you have a right to have choices. I love this, the people who are pro-choice, they’re not pro-choice. They will fight for the right to kill an unborn baby, but they will fight against your right to have a 32-ounce soda. They will fight against your right to have a cigarette. They will fight against your right to be able to raise your child as you see fit, to homeschool them. That’s insane. That’s Fascism. That’s not liberty.

Nature’s rights, I have a right to live free. I have a right to create. I don’t need a permit. I want to build something. I’m going to create. And I have a right to keep the fruit of my labor. Abraham Lincoln said there is nothing more immoral, this is against slavery, but think of this with the IRS and what we’re doing now, there is nothing more immoral than taking the bread that has been baked by the sweat of another man’s brow.

In other words, how is it this man is going to go out and cut everything, and then I’m just going to go out and take all of the work that he has done, and I’m just going to take it because it’s mine. That was the case against slavery. Abraham Lincoln, I think you’re making the case against big government and Progressivism. Why? Because he was making a case on nature’s law.

See, man’s law can change. Man’s law tells you in China you can have slaves. Nature’s law says you can never have slaves. Man’s law changes, goes with the wind. This one comes from wisdom. This one comes from arrogance, pride, and greed.

Why is it whenever one of those Hollywood Liberals opens up their mouths, they make assholes of themselves? Film executive Harvey Weinstein said the other day on the Howard Stern Show that he plans to make an anti-gun movie starring Meryl Streep that will take a direct shot at the National Rifle Association.

“We’re going to take this issue head on, and they’re going to wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them,” Weinstein said on Howard Stern’s radio show. “I never want to have a gun,” Weinstein said. “I don’t think we need guns in this country, and I hate it, and I think the NRA is a disaster area.”

Maybe Weinstein doesn’t carry a gun, but how about the many bodyguards he uses, how many of them carry guns, all of them I bet. This is hypocritical talk from a man who made his fortune form movies with a crap load of gun violence, “Pulp Fiction,” “Reservoir Dogs,” “Django Unchained,” “Kill Bill,” and “Rambo” are just a few of the films Weinstein has financed over the years. According to CelebrityNetWorth.com, Weinstein is worth approximately $150 million, all from violent gun movies, not bad Harvey.

Stern also asked Weinstein what he would use to defend his family if he were living during the Holocaust, considering both he and Weinstein are Jewish. Weinstein said there was a justification for using a gun “when you’re marching a half of a million people into Auschwitz, I’d find a gun.” Nazi Germany largely confiscated its citizens’ guns through a government gun registry in the run-up to World War II, leaving Jewish Germans and other minorities without the ability to defend themselves when the Holocaust began. Hey Harvey, where are you going to find a gun after the Government has taken them away? What an idiot.

Weinstein is just another Hollywood Liberal who says he cares about human life, yet he champions abortion, which kills over one million babies each year, while there are around thirty-thousand deaths each year from guns, where is the justification? Why isn’t he going after Planned Parenthood, they take more lives in one day than guns ever will.

The Second Amendment is protected by the NRA, they stand in defense of our right to carry a gun for our protection, without them the Hollywood Liberals might have a chance of shredding the Second Amendment. It’s funny how these Hollywood Liberals rally against gun ownership, yet they are all protected by bodyguards who carry guns. I guess they think the little people are too stupid to own a gun, I guess if we were all rich enough to hire bodyguards we wouldn’t need guns either.

The NRA is one of the United States’ largest certifying bodies for firearm safety training and proficiency training courses for police departments, recreational hunting, and child firearm safety. You would think that people like Weinstein would appreciate the NRA for all the good work they do in teaching firearm safety, but alas, Liberals will never see the light, no matter how much good the NRA does.

My final word to Harvey is this, you can make all the movies and crazy speeches you want, the NRA is here to stay, so is the Second Amendment and so are guns, so go have another Latte and shut your pie hole.

Now! Now It’s Job One?

Obama first took office in January of 2009, now, January of 2014 the Democrats are saying, to quote New York Senator Chuck Schumer, “The debt and Obama-Care are important, but our number one focus should be on the economy and jobs,” where were the Democrats six years ago?

In 2009 we were at the height of the recession, where was the concentration on jobs then? The Democrats instead pushed a stimulus package that did nothing and forced Obama-Care down our throats, that is in the process of not only hurting the economy but also killing job creation. This same Senator Schumer also said “Many of our Republican colleagues say: ‘Oh, unemployment benefits keep people from work.’ That is insulting,” I think Senator Schumer is smoking that funny stuff that Liberals like to smoke. Not only him, but Obama also said, “Voting for unemployment insurance helps people and creates jobs. And voting against it does not,”

Let me explain something to our Liberal pals, even though it will never sink in, paying people not to work, will keep them not working, if we keep extending unemployment until it becomes another entitlement, it will only keep unemployment high. The December jobs report came out, 75,000 jobs created in that month, 75,000 jobs, it has been three and a half years since the economy created that few amount of jobs. Where are the four million jobs that were supposed to be created “almost immediately” with the passage of Obama-Care, at least that is what Nancy Pelosi promised, another Democrat promise that went nowhere.

The Democrats wouldn’t know a jobs plan if it bit them on the ass, their full concentration seems to be on keeping people out of work by paying them to do so. Now Obama has another bright idea that will go nowhere, ‘promise zones’ when you sit down and examine them, they are nothing more than welfare on steroids. This President does not seem to get it, LBJ tried it in the mid 1960’s with his war on poverty, that only grew generations of Government dependency. I have to hand it to the Liberals, they keep trying over and over, what are nothing more than failed policies, just putting a different name to them, they are persistent I must say.

Ronald Reagan said it best when he said “I believe the best social program is a job.” Why don’t Liberals understand this philosophy, why don’t they see that people would rather have a job than an unemployment check, is it so hard to understand? Liberals seem to be good at creating more and more entitlements, but why don’t they learn how to create what people want, which is a job.

FDR kept this country in a depression for ten years with his big Government spending, you would think that Obama would learn from that, all he is doing is following in FDR’s footsteps, thank God Obama can’t be elected to another term or we would see another four years unemployment checks instead of jobs. I have to hand it to Obama, he is good at giving people hope, but sooner or later people are going to realize you can’t live for long on hope. Going into the sixth year of the Obama Presidency and the Democrats are now starting to concentrate on jobs, but they are not fooling me. The only reason they are shouting income equality, and jobs is to get the heat off the failure of Obama-Care.

I am far from an economist, but even I know Government spending does not create jobs, the private sector does that. Oh, the Government can start a job for a month or two, but when the money runs out, so does the job. These Liberals need to understand, if you get the Government out of the way, the private sector will take care of the rest, but why am I wasting my breath.

A New Year Of What?

Here we are 2014, we are just a week in and we are watching Obama-Care fall apart and watching al Qaeda-linked militants, who have overrun two cities in Iraq. Wait, I thought Obama said that al-Qaeda was decimated and on the run? Well, I guess I will have to add this to the long list of lies Obama has told the American people since he has been in office, I have to admit, my pen is running out of ink.

“When President Obama withdrew all U.S. forces over the objections of our military leaders and commanders on the ground, many of us predicted that the vacuum would be filled by America’s enemies and would emerge as a threat to U.S. national security interests. Sadly, that reality is now clearer than ever,” said Sen. John McCain.

Now Americans can see the difference between winning a war and just walking away from a war, to me that difference is having a leader. It should be clear that Obama does nothing, unless there is a political benefit for him and his party. We are now into six years of Obama, the economy is just now starting to show a little life, after six years the unemployment rate is still at 7% and our growth is predicted to be about 2.5%. Throw on top of that his failed foreign policy, you have to be Stevie Wonder to say this guy is doing a good job. Obama has put a band-aid on everything, now those band-aids are starting to fall off.

Also this year, my home town of New York City has elected a Socialist, Progressive, Liberal as mayor, I lump them all together because they are all one and the same, plus he admits what he is anyway. The problem is people forget, I lived through the terrible years of the 1970’s in New York City, when they had Liberal Mayor Dinkins and he almost ran that city into the ground.

Dinkins was as Liberal as a Liberal could be, his only concern was social issues, so he did what all Liberals do RAISE TAXES. So New York saw a decade of despair, buildings crumbling, business leaving, crime rates rising, murder rates jumped to over 2000 a year, New York almost became Detroit. In comes Rudy Giuliani and believe me he turned that city around, business started to come back because he lowered taxes, decay around the city was fixed, crime went down along with the murder rate and unemployment rate, the city was revitalized. Mayor de Blasio is starting his term with a murder rate of about 300 for 2013, there is no doubt in my mind that murder rates will start to rise because of his soft on crime Liberal policies and he already said he was going to raise taxes. There is no surprise that back in the 1970’s de Blasio worked for then Mayor Dinkins, so what can New York expect. Like Yogi Berra said, it seems like déjà vu all over again.

What more proof do we need about Liberals, new Mayor de Blasio has said the reason he wants to raise taxes on the rich is so that he can start a pre-K program for the city. The Governor of New York has said that the state will provide the money without raising taxes, but the mayor made it clear that he’ll take whatever money the state wants to offer, while still demanding that the wealthy pay more. Obviously, the goal is not the pre-K programs, but just raising taxes, no matter how much money he gets from the state.

I am 61 years old and I have seen this time and time again, Liberals get elected by promising the world, then deliver nothing, so Conservatives have to come in and clean up the mess, seems like it is a never ending cycle. This much I do know, Obama is leaving one hell of a mess, and we need someone good to clean it up. 2014 is an important year, there is a good chance that the Republicans can re-claim the Senate and maybe even have it veto proof, at least that is what I dream about.

Let me also thank everyone for making my book “What Kind Of Society Are We Leaving Our Kids” a success last year. Available here.

What’s The Difference Between Bozo And Obama?

I know, I know, most of you are thinking that it is a trick question; you are thinking that there is no difference between Bozo and Obama, because you think that they are both clowns. However, there is a big difference, Bozo knows he is a clown, that’s how he earned a living. On the other hand, Obama thinks he is a President, but he is actually a clown, and that’s dangerous.

I am sure everyone is familiar with the disgraceful shenanigans Obama displayed at the Nelson Mandela Memorial, joking and clowning with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt taking selfies while laughing. It’s not even a Presidential thing to do in public at any time, but at a memorial service it is downright disgusting, even Michelle Obama was pissed and disgusted with her husband’s childish goings-on.

What does this man have to do before the Left will admit that he should never have been elected to the position he now holds? Time and time again he has proven that he is not a leader, he had no qualifications or experience for the job, even after five years in office it is obvious he hasn’t got a clue, now the American people are paying the price. America has become a laughing stock around the world, plus we are no longer respected and worse, we are no longer feared.

Scandal after scandal have surfaced, as they do Obama says, “He will get to the bottom of it” then that is the last we ever hear of it. He feels that if he just pretends these things never happened, they would all disappear, well as long as the lame stream media keeps protecting him, he is right. The media has done this country a great disservice by protecting an incompetent President, because of that, America has paid a big price, by looking like fools around the world. If you think that the world isn’t watching and laughing about the disastrous roll out of Obama-Care and thinking what a bunch of idiots those Americans are, you are sadly mistaken.

Obama also made a fool of himself this year by declaring a red line in Syria over chemical weapons. When his hand was forced, he denied that there was a red line, and then he sort of acknowledged it. In steps Putin, pushes Obama aside, takes control of the situation and makes a deal, again making Obama look like a clown.

What about Iran, the Obama administration is acting as though there is a deal in place; they have unfrozen Iranian assets and have lifted sanctions. Obama says that there is a deal, however the Iranians deny there is a deal and are stamping their feet over the type of language used. While the world sits and scratches their heads wondering what America is doing, Obama again looks like a clown.

While Obama is goofing off, taking selfies and acting like a clown, his entire foreign policy has failed. His Middle East policy is a disaster that has made the region less stable. China, North Korea, Russia, Iran are licking their chops, knowing that under Obama, America has become a weaker nation. That’s what happens when you send a clown to do a man’s job.

We Need To Start Condemning People Again

I was recently talking to a neighbor of mine, during our conversation he told me he was going to be a grandfather, which I said great and did the usual kidding about him getting older. Then I said you know I didn’t even know she was married, which he replied that she wasn’t, as he said it I could see the hurt look in his eyes. I said well, that seems to be the way things are going today, then he said, “she is my daughter, what am I gonna do, kick her out of the house?”

Later on I started thinking, the reason why things like this are happening more and more these days is because there is no shame connected with it anymore. It seems that we live in a shameless society today where everything is accepted. Nothing is looked down on or frowned upon, if we criticize, condemn or judge anything, we are the ones who are wrong. The proportion of children born to unmarried mothers hit a record 47.5 per cent last year, according to the Office for National Statistics. The figure has risen from 25 per cent in 1988 and just 11 per cent in 1979. It is not only unwed mothers that we must not condemn, but it seems that most things that were once considered wrong, just does not matter to society today.

Once, being on welfare and collecting food stamps was an embarrassment and humiliating, if someone was on them, they would never admit it and would get off the Government dole as quickly as possible. Now, people are happy to be on the Government dole, they talk about it freely and even try to convince other people they know to jump on as well. In many states, you make more living on welfare than going out and working, so why bother working. Well, what do you expect when the Government sends out recruiters to sign-up people for food stamps.

We live in a society now where people can do whatever they want without any consequences, if you speak out about something that you know is wrong, you are labeled a hater or bigot or insensitive, or uncaring. However, it seems to me the opposite is true. It is because I care about the direction our country and society are heading, that I do condemn many things I see as wrong.

Now a day it seems like the worse things you do, the more you are celebrated, as a matter of fact you will probably be given a Reality Show. Unwed mothers are celebrated, drug users are celebrated, having multiple wives is celebrated, and making sex tapes will shoot you to the top fastest of all. Father Knows Best, Leave It To Beaver and Ozzie And Harriet were some of the shows I watched when I was a kid, now, unless Ozzie and Harriet were having multiple affairs and David and Ricky were homosexual drug users, the show would never get on the air.

It seems to me we need to start condemning and judging people again, don’t get me wrong, I am a believer in freedom, but a society needs parameters to live by or it will start to collapse and I believe our society is in decline. Just think, you can go to a restaurant in San Francisco and at the next table, you can find someone eating completely naked, that’s right, walking around naked is legal in San Francisco, where is the sense in that.

We are all familiar with the disgraceful performance of Miley Cyrus, after the performance her father said he was proud of her, Miley’s father, Billy Ray Cyrus, is well aware that his daughter can’t be tamed, and as such he tweeted a message of support for the 20-year-old singer. After her raunchy performance that featured her grinding on Robin Thicke and simulating masturbation, he also said he and his daughter have been like friends her whole life. Well I have news for Billy Ray, parents are supposed to be parents, not friends, condemning her performance might have been a start, but I think it might be a little late for Miley.

Why Don’t Americans Believe The Truth?

It should now be obvious to everyone, even Liberals, that Obama does not give a flying banana about the American people. How could anyone believe that he truly cares about people after his pathetic speech he gave on TV the other day? Telling people to go to the web-site to sign-up for Obama-Care when he knows the damn think does not work is truly pathetic.

How can he say he cares when;

  1. The web-site is nowhere near ready.
  2. People cannot make payments
  3. Insurance companies cannot receive applications
  4. And the biggest one of all is that the web-site is a hackers delight.

Putting people in harm’s way is not what a President is supposed to be doing, if he truly cared about the American people he would shut the damn thing down and open it back up when it is 100% ready. It should also be clear after that speech that Obama cares about only one thing, his ego.

But it wasn’t only about health-care, he also lied about the economy and the job market, now there is a report that the unemployment numbers were fudged two months before the election, in Obama’s favor I might add. So why do the American people choose lies over truth, because we as human beings, believe what sounds better to us, it is what we want to believe. There is no doubt that Obama got elected because of the many low information voters that are out there, people who care more about the sizzle rather than looking at the steak.

Well, we now know the truth about the 2012 election, everything Obama said was a lie and everything the Republicans said was the truth. Everything about Obama-Care that the Republicans said would happen, we find now is true, while we now see that Obama lied through his teeth. Everything that came out of Obama’s mouth from not letting Detroit go bankrupt, to keeping your doctor and your health plan was a lie and he knew it.

An ABC/Washington Post poll found that if they had a do-over, Romney would win 49 percent to 45 percent. The difference is within the margin of error of 3.5 percentage points, but Obama polls a lower percentage of the vote today than he did in November 2012. The largest number of defections were among female voters ages 18-54, 31 percent of whom said they would not have supported the president.

Many years ago I was a car salesman, a new guy came on the sales floor and started selling cars left and right, and soon became the top salesman. Management loved him and he received many awards month after month, when after about 9 months we found out why. Customers started coming back to the dealership complaining that what the salesman told them about the car was not true, also complaining that the free stuff they were supposed to get, they did not get. It seems the reason he was the top salesman all that time is because he lied through his teeth and told every customer what they wanted to hear and then some.

It seems to me that we have a President with the same philosophy, tell the people what they want to hear, even if you have to lie. The only difference is that the salesman eventually got fired, unfortunately, we can’t fire Obama, we had the chance in 2012, but people still believed his bullshit. Were all these lies an impeachable offence? Maybe, we will have to wait and see. It seems that only Congressman Joe Wilson knew the truth about Obama, he tried to warn us, but we did not listen.
