During the 2008 campaign, as well as during the “debating” what would become the ram-rodding of ObamaCare down the throats of the American people, we heard time and time again the sad sob story of how his mother could not get health insurance in the last years of her life because the mean ole horrible insurance companies would not give it to her.
In September of 2008, Obama said:
“I remember in the last month of her life, she wasn’t thinking about how to get well, she wasn’t thinking about coming to terms with her own mortality, she was thinking about whether or not insurance was going to cover the medical bills and whether our family would be bankrupt as a consequence.”
He added to that, in January 2008, by saying:
“She was in her hospital room looking at insurance forms because the insurance company said that maybe she had a pre-existing condition and maybe they wouldn’t have to reimburse her for her medical bills.”
In February of 2010, during the ram-rodding session, he said:
“My Mother, who was self-employed, didn’t have reliable healthcare, and she died of ovarian cancer. There probably is nothing modern medicine could have done about that, it was caught late and thats a hard cancer to diagnose. I do remember the last six months of her life, insurance companies threatening that they would not reimburse her for her costs. And her having to be on the phone in the hospital argueing with insurance companies when what she should have been doing is spending time with her family.”
However, the sad sob story is not true. The facts, which are presented in a new book written by New York Times reporter Janny Scott tells an entirely different story. The book, entitled “A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother”, reveals that Ann Dunham did, in fact, have health coverage for her ovarian cancer, and was compensated for most all of her treatments, with the exception of one in August of 1995 which was denied. She was, however, denied coverage by CIGNA for a claim under her employer’s disability insurance policy, which is separate from her healthcare policy. She applied for disability because she wanted to be compensated for medical costs as well as living expenses.
The author writes that Obama‘s tragic story of his mother’s fight with insurance companies was “abbreviated”, because she did have health insurance to pay for her treatment:
“Though he(Obama) often suggested that she was denied health coverage because of a pre-existing condition, it appears from her correspondence that she was only denied disability coverage’”
How do we know that Ann Dunham had insurance? Her own words prove it, in correspondence that Janny Scott reviewed for the book. Byron York, with the Washington Examiner, writes:
“Dunham decided to stay in Jakarta, where she underwent an appendectomy. But the pain did not go away, and Dunham feared, correctly, that she was terribly ill. In January 1995 she left Indonesia to go home to Honolulu, where she was diagnosed with advanced uterine and ovarian cancer. She began a regime of surgery and chemotherapy.
That is the time during which Obama says his mother battled insurance companies to cover her illness. But Scott, who had access to Dunham’s correspondence from the time, reveals that Dunham unquestionably had health coverage. ‘Ann’s compensation for her job in Jakarta had included health insurance, which covered most of the costs of her medical treatment,’ Scott writes. ‘Once she was back in Hawaii, the hospital billed her insurance company directly, leaving Ann to pay only the deductible and any uncovered expenses, which, she said, came to several hundred dollars a month.”
It is becoming quite evident that this President has no clue what the truth is! While I am sure the last years of Ann Dunham’s life was quite painful and frustrating, her son has exploited her pain and frustration with outright lies! Obama has made his mother nothing but a pawn in his web of lies and schemes. The question now becomes: America, have you had enough? Are you going to hold him accountable in the 2012 election? Or are you going to continuing believing the lies that he spoon feeds you?
After years of denial or dismissal from the left, the mask of Hollywood has finally come off. However, it is not something that I imagine the “elite” of Tinsel Town really expected.
In interviews with what they thought to be a liberal reporter (because, come on- any “good” reporter worth sitting down with is liberal, right??) several Hollywood producers used words such as “idiots” and “medieval minds” when referring to conservatives.
In reality, all it takes is a baseball cap with a liberal college logo- Harvard- and the fact that the reporter’s last name is “Shapiro”, and you have the perfect scene for the latest expose’ of the liberal agenda.
Mr. Shapiro conducted the interviews for his book, Primetime Propaganda: The True Hollywood Story of How the Left Took Over Your TV, which was just released this past Tuesday.
In reading what these executives had to say in the interviews with Mr. Shapiro, what I find more than just a little bit amusing is how in this day and age where you can find out anything about anyone with just a few keystrokes on a computer, it does not appear that very many, if any of the 39 Hollywood executives interviewed bothered to “google” the name Ben Shapiro. As Mr. Shapiro states,
“Most of them didn’t Google me. If they had, they would have realized where I am politically,” he said. “I played on their stereotypes. When I showed up for the interviews, I wore my Harvard Law baseball cap — my name is Ben Shapiro and I attended Harvard, so there’s a 98.7 percent chance I’m a liberal. Except I happen not to be.”
So it doesn’t look like the elite know so much after all!
One thing that I find quite interesting is how these people who claim to be so “tolerant” of others show their true colors! The truth is they are “tolerant” of people that have the same views as they do, but as soon as someone comes along who does not agree with their agenda they are not so tolerant after all.
Just more proof of the hypocrisy of the left.
In another quote from the article about Mr. Shapiro’s book:
Another video Shapiro will release shortly has producer-director Nicholas Meyer being asked point-blank whether conservatives are discriminated against in Hollywood. “Well, I hope so,” he answers. Meyer also admits his political agenda for “The Day After,” a TV movie he directed for ABC that was seen by 100 million people when it aired in 1983.
Wow! I’m guessing Mr. Meyer was not counting on that statement being made public!
I also find it very interesting that liberals have no problem at all pushing their agenda, yet if we conservatives- especially God-fearing, Bible believing, gun-toting conservatives just so much as breathe our beliefs or want to make a movie about our beliefs we are called bigoted, racists, extremists, and any other derogatory name they can think of.
The bottom line comes down to this: if you are a conservative with dreams of becoming a Hollywood star, you would do best to keep your mouth shut about your political beliefs or just find another dream to pursue.
Or, another idea: I say the conservatives in Hollywood ban together and revolt against this leftist agenda! In the modern age of the Internet, Netflix, and other options who needs the left? Who needs the network TV stations? And for that matter, who needs Primetime TV? There’s very little that comes out of Tinsel Town worth watching at all anymore anyway! On the rare occasion that something decent DOES come out it is canceled after half a season, or a complete season at most!
The leftist agenda has indeed taken over what is produced for TV. They have completely “dumbed down” what once was quality entertainment. Just like everything within the leftist agenda it’s been a slow process. But the slippery slope that began forty years ago has been quite successful. We are now left with “reality shows” and we call that entertainment.
I say let the leftist liberals continue their agenda on Primetime TV. Let Hollywood continue the downward spiral into the abyss they seem to crave. We conservatives can put our money- advertising funds, production funds, funds for conservative actors- whatever it takes- to create a conservative entertainment outlet. What that is I don’t know- I am a writer, not a movie or TV producer. But I know with the collective minds of the conservative movement the answer is out there!

Hello DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Shultz, I live in Tampa Florida, and just read your marvelous announcements about Fellow Democrat Kathy Hochul winning a seat in congress in the New York (26) special elections. Congratulations! First of all I must comment on how I’m sure you know New York well, as you still have that New YAWK accent, even though you supposedly live here in Florida and represent all Floridians today as the Democrats mouthpiece. Isn’t that amazing? Here is something I also found to be amazing today in typical Democratic talking points propaganda media piece speak, from CNSNEWS.COM:
In a statement congratulating Democrat Kathy Hochul on her victory, Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz noted that Hochul won in a “solidly Republican district,” despite being outspent by a 2-to-1 margin:
“Tonight’s election result is not just a victory for Congresswoman-Elect Kathy Hochul, it’s a victory for the residents of Western New York and for Americans who believe that our elected leaders should fight to protect Medicare and ensure that our government works for our seniors, working families and young people.
Debbie Wasserman, (I had cancer) Schultz is really getting on my nerves with her hypocrisy here. Let me remind you of one basic FACT here for all of our Seniors concerned about their medicare and believing the Democrat’s lies here: Obama and the Democrats just cut $500 billion dollars out of your medicare to pass Obama-care under the fake budgetary standards the head liberal (Obama) demanded. Clear enough Seniors?
One last question for the new Propaganda Mistress of the DNC, Miss New York- what in the hell are you doing here polluting Florida, Wassermann-Schultz : How about you Democrats explaining just how well you are doing for the “young people” you mention above? Like, explaining to them the over $6 TRILLION dollars of debt they have to repay since you clowns took over Congress in 2006, and the trillion dollar yearly deficits ever since Mr. Hope n Nothin- left- but- change, got into the White House? I’m calling your BULL just what it is W-Schultz, ya got the facts to deny it ? If you are sooo self-righteous in that garbage and misinformation, lets get together for a one on one here near Tampa. As Tim Pawlenty says… It is truly “A Time for Truth” for all Floridians. Dial it up Princess, let’s match up some truths and facts about America , her budget deficits and Medicare . That is right, I am calling you out on the part of my parents and millions of Seniors across America. Contact my editor, lets see what you have, or call into our show The Plain Hard Truth, tomorrow night. I shall be there waiting on you, but I’m not holding my breath, as you are too busy spreading lies and misinformation for the DNC to honest hard working seniors who have paid into SSI for decades, like my parents here in Florida and across America ! As my Grampa always said W-Shultz, “It is time to put up or shut up.”
I have been called a racist. I have been called a hater.
Racist I am not. Hater I am. I do not hate the person; I hate what they are doing to this country. Notice I said “they“!
I’m sure you already know who I am accused of being a racist and hater against. You guessed it! President Barack Obama! I do not hate Barack Obama. I do hate what he and the liberal agenda are doing to this nation! My issues with him have absolutely nothing to do with the color of his skin! His skin could be white, black, brown, red, purple, yellow, orange, or polka dotted for all I care!
Let me just lay my cards on the table from the beginning.
As I have addressed in my previous article, Mr. Obama FINALLY Presents His Birth Certificate , I have my doubts that the birth certificate that was released is actually real. With this issue it has absolutey nothing to do with the color of his skin; it has everything to do with the fact that I do not believe a single word that comes out of his mouth, as I wrote about in my article, “Liar, Liar Pants on Fire!” However, because I do not have actual proof, I am not going to waste my time going down that road. The simple fact is things just don’t add up. But, what’s done is done. The American people elected him. So be it. Enough said about the birth certificate.
As to the second accusation that I am a hater, I do not hate anyone. I strongly dislike some people, and there are many, many, many people I choose not to spend time with, I do not hate anyone. As a Christian, I strive to live by the Word of God. (Matthew 5:44; Luke 6:27) So no, I do not hate President Obama as a person.
However, I do hate what he is doing to this country! He is systematically destroying everything that this country stands for!
For the record, he has not done this on his own. I believe he is the one to actually accomplish the goal that the liberals have been working towards for 100 years or so.
It was WHITE people who started the Liberal Agenda and have used and manipulated blacks along the way. Unfortunately, and very sadly, so many blacks have bought into the lies of the Liberal Agenda. But blacks are not the only people who have bought into their lies.
It’s interesting to me that if a black person speaks out against President Obama they are referred to as a racist. This has got to be one of the most asinine arguments/attacks/accusations I’ve ever heard! How can a black person be racist against another black person?
I guess I can somewhat stretch my imagination to the farthest ends of the earth to understand this logic if… and ONLY IF – the person was speaking out against the black President to say that the president should be white. However, if the black man is speaking out against the black President to say that he- a black man- is going to run against him, I believe that throws the whole racist argument out the window entirely. It’s just logical. But hey, that’s just me. Logical. It’s so sad that so often the liberal argument lacks common logic.
Herman Cain- a black man- is running for President as an opponent of President Barack Obama- a black man! So, Herman Cain- a black man- is essentially saying he is applying for the job of President of The United States of America- which is currently held by- wait…. a black man! I know! Shocking, isn’t it! How racist of Herman Cain!
So, for the record- to be factual in this discussion- what is a racist?
1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.
4. the belief that races have distinctive cultural characteristics determined by hereditary factors and that this endows some races with an intrinsic superiority over others
5. abusive or aggressive behavior towards members of another race on the basis of such a belief
From this definition it is very clear that Herman Cain is not a racist. I personally can say, from reading the official definition of the word, that I am not racist. In fact, if I were able to pick my perfect candidate and running mate for 2012 President, both the President and Vice President would be non-white. I will not elaborate on the reasons for my choices in this article, but will in a future article. So who would I choose? For President I would absolutely love to have Allen West. For Vice President I would absolutely love to have Michelle Malkin. Now, I do realize that Michelle Malkin has never breathed a word of interest towards a political position. However, this country would benefit greatly from her being in a leadership position.
The only real explanation that makes any sense to me is that the people shouting “racism” have no other legitimate argument to stand on. The last thing any normal person wants is to be called a racist. Notice I said normal person, because there are the ridiculous people out there that take pride in being called a racist. I believe these people are by far few and far between in comparison to normal people who see things factually rather than racially.
The liberals are smart enough to realize that any sane, normal person will vehemently deny being racist. This distracts from the real issues. If you can disarm the person from arguing the real issues you are essentially the winner.
The problem is this is not a game. The winners and losers are not those arguing the liberal or conservative agenda. The real losers are our children. Our future. The future of this great nation. There are no winners at all!
We truly have reached a very sad state of affairs in this country. Call me what you will- racist, hater, or any other hateful thing you choose. I know the truth. Do you want to know what I really am? Sad. Very sad to see how far we have sunk as a nation.
“The speech he chose to deliver was dishonest even by modern political standards”.
It is pretty much a “given” that politicians cannot be trusted. However, for a major news source to go on record with the quote above I would have to say that Obama pretty much takes the cake in the deceit category!
I literally get sick to my stomach when Obama comes on TV. Oh, laugh if you will- I am not exaggerating! One thing that I absolutely detest is a liar! I know from personal experience how it can- and will- destroy a person!
When he makes what has become almost a daily appearance on TV I cannot get to the remote fast enough to change the channel! By the way- a little side note/question- what is up with this narcissistic man? He’s on TV more than the paid news anchors that are supposedly reporting the news!
All too often, before I can get to the remote to get his smug face off of my TV, I am subjected to his lies. It has gotten to the point that his voice literally makes me cringe! So it is in these moments that I have to vent my frustration- my mouth flies open, and I cannot help but yell out at the TV- “You LIE!” Over time, it’s become, “Liar, liar pants on fire!”
When I saw this article today in The Wall Street Journal I started laughing. No, not a hysterical, funny laugh…. But instead, a sad, disturbed laugh.
What is the point? Do they honestly believe the lies they spew? Not just Obama, but all of these politicians? And the next question- the most important question- why do so many still believe anything that comes out of Washington?
I looked up the term “Liar, liar pants on fire” in the event that I needed to give credit to someone. While it is a well-known saying, I wanted to see if there was a “behind the saying story” that would hit the nail on the head, so to speak, in my thoughts.
There is no dispute where the paraphrase comes from- a poem, which was written in 1810 titled “The Liar” by William Blake.
What I found is quite amusing- again, not in a funny way, but in a sad and disturbing way. It’s funny how something written 200 years ago can be so fitting today!
I am not going to quote the entire thing, but you if you like to read it, you can find it here.
“What red devil of mendacity
Grips your soul with such tenacity?”
“What internal serpent
Has lent you his forked tongue?
From what pit of foul deceit
Are all these whoppers sprung?
I am sure you have heard the rumblings and questions of, “Could Obama possibly be the Antichrist?” While I do not personally believe that he is the Antichrist, I have to say reading these lines from the poem really made me stop and think for a second or two. Without a doubt I believe there is a quality of evil that surrounds him. Now, I know- there will be leftists who will attack me on this. So be it. It is what it is. I cannot change the way I perceive something. His actions are all the proof I need!
From the very beginning of him stepping onto the scene I have sensed something about him. There are many pictures of him that just look plain evil! I am a firm believer that the eyes are the window to the soul. I believe who you truly are is reflected in the depths- or shallowness- of your eyes.
There are a few pictures of Obama that have given me the most eerie feeling. It’s as if there is nothing but darkness behind his eyes- the window to Obama’s soul.
Satan is the Father of Lies (John 8:44). Anyone who is entangled in the sin of lying is following Satan. So for those of you who want to cast stones at me- I will make no apologies. The Bible is my reference for everything in life. So I speak not only of President Obama, but of any and all people who speak lies. Lies are from the pits of hell!
Interesting that this poem that was written 200 years ago speaks of liars having a devil gripping their soul [there we go again with the soul]; it speaks of the internal serpent with a forked tongue from the pits of deceit; and the final explanation of a deceiver. Very interesting indeed, when you look at the parallels between this poem and President Obama!
While I disbelieve almost everything from our elected officials in Washington- Democrats and Republicans alike- I do most assuredly believe that President Obama takes the cake! I find it very interesting that now, The Wall Street Journal, one of the most respected newspapers in print, is coming out and publicly saying it.
At the very bottom of the source I quoted above for the origin of the saying, “Liar, liar, pants on fire”, it says that it is recommended that the phrase be shouted when someone has said something with insufficient truth value. Without a doubt this applies to President Obama! I cannot think of a single thing that has come out of his mouth that I actually believe! So it is with great anger and sadness that I shout, “Mr. Obama- Liar, liar, pants on fire!!!!!”
With a noteworthy source such as The Wall Street Journal shining the light of truth on the enormity of the lies coming out of President Obama’s mouth- the article even stated that his speech was “toxic”- I wonder how long it is going to take for the main stream media to wake up! Oh, wait a minute! Never mind. I know that will never happen! They have bought into his lies and believe the great illusion that is now the President of The United States of America! God help us all! Seriously, God- please help us all! You truly are the ONLY Hope we have! The toxicity of this man is unparalleled in the history of this great nation! He is bent on destroying all that we represent and stand for as a nation! Barack Obama’s words truly are vile, destructive… and yes, toxic!

Our Obama, who art on vacation, Hollowed be thy head.
Your limo come, vacation’s done,
in Chicago as it is in Hawaii.
Give us this day our daily cheese,
and forgive us our conservatism,
as we forgive those commie, pinko, progressive, tree-hugging environmentalist wacko Van Jones clones who trespass against us.
And lead us not into solvency,
but deliver us from living within our means.
For thine is the Federal Reserve, and the student loans,
and the Obama stash, forever and ever – at least until the worm turns.
The stupidity of Barack Hussein Obama’s supposedly intellectual political arguments goes beyond the pale. No, take that back! Obama didn’t say a thing. TOTUS did all the talking. Obama’s overhyped speech today, Wednesday, April 13th, didn’t deviate one whit from his commie track record. In fact it didn’t even start on time. He was late as usual…word has it that he was on the toilet. Presidentin’ makes you want to “go” don’t cha know. And then rumor has it that while walking to the speech he allegedly stopped along the way to squeeze the fruit – regrettably, Barney Frank couldn’t be reached for comment. Another possible reason given for the lateness of Obama’s arrival at the podium was the suggestion that the Obamas were held up reenacting that scene from the Geico commercial featuring Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln. So Michelle supposedly told Barack to get her something good for her birthday and gives him some hints like “I want something shiny, which goes from zero to 200 in five seconds.” So Barack gets her a scale! But anyway, we digress – Time to get back on track with the weightier matter of the stupidity of Obama’s political speechifying arguments.
He’s a moron when it comes to economics, commerce, business, and finance. Stealing the message of conservatism from the true conservatives, Obama magnanimously called on both Democrats and Republicans to balance the budget and work toward paying down the debt of the federal government. But then his inner communist took over and he decided that the way to accomplish the feat would be to put an end to the Bush-era tax cuts for those making more than $250,000 a year. Somehow, Obama is convinced that penalizing the productive will somehow translate into exalting the nonproductive elements of society. In other news apples and oranges have been deemed to be identical. “The only concrete proposal that he proposed was raising taxes,” said Eric Cantor, a member of the House GOP leadership. “That solution falls far short of dealing with the kind of crises that we’re facing,” said Cantor.
A blogger known only as Freddie Cougar said it best: “Raising taxes = ‘reducing tax expenditures,’ addressing ‘spending reductions in the tax code,’ ‘spending in the tax code,’ and ‘spending reductions in the tax code.’ Doublespeak at its finest.” It was a friggin’ campaign speech. Government has been the source of our prosperity? Good grief, it was another revisionist history lesson from our commie president. According to Obama tax cuts are the problem. “It’s all the Bush’s fault” – signed Moses. Poor Dubya, the Evil Genius. Obama is good at only one thing. He is an exceptional liar. Obama is a crybaby. Obama is a wimp. Obama is a whiner. Obama blames everyone but himself. Obama sucks. His entire talk could have been summed up thusly: “When I took office…it’s not my fault!”
Behold the Lying King! We’ve all heard the old joke that goes something like this: “What is the difference between the Lion King and Barack Obama? The Lion King is an African Lion. Obama is a Lying African.” Liberals inevitably call the joke racist. They don’t get the fact that liars can come from any continent. It’s just the plain fact, Jack that this one’s roots are from Kenya. Last we heard, after that stupefying speech, is that the village doesn’t want its idiot back. Good for the village! Perhaps the HildaBeast can spare a dime.
In a poor zoo of Africa, a lion was frustrated as he was offered not more than 1 kilogram of meat a day.
The lion thought its prayers were answered when one day a Honolulu Zoo manager visited the zoo and requested the zoo management to shift the lion to the Honolulu Zoo.
The lion was so happy and started thinking of a central A/C environment and a goat or two every day.
On its first day after arrival, the lion was offered a big bag, sealed nicely for breakfast. The lion opened it quickly but was shocked to see that it contained nothing but a few bottles of KGBean dip. The lion thought that maybe they cared too much for him as they were worried about his stomach as he had recently shifted locations.
The next day the same thing happened. On the third day again the same food bag of KGBean dip was delivered. The lion was so furious; it stopped the delivery boy and blasted him, “don’t you know I am the lion…King of the Jungle? What’s wrong with your management? What nonsense is this? Why are you delivering KGBean dip to me?”
The delivery boy politely said, “Sir, I know you are the King of the Jungle … but… you have been brought here on Frank Marshall Davis’ visa!”
Now we know that Obama’s speech was timed so as to not go up against Dancing With The Stars. We don’t know why; but considering the way Obama tap-danced around Libya and the economy, he might have won. Some people are saying Obama was a little bit testy during the speech. Hmmm… it looks like somebody’s March Madness bracket pick didn’t do so well. You know, ever since the CEO of G.E. became his advisor, everything Obama says sounds like a light bulb commercial. Walk to the light, little people! Walk to the light!
It was recently reported in the news that Obama had been accidentally locked out of the White House. For that one panicked moment Obama thought that they must have found his real birth certificate. At least the locked door to the White House gave Obama an alibi. “I didn’t do it. It was broken when I got here.” – Barack “Bart Simpson” Obama.
America has taken up the drinking game to pass the time during Obama’s speeches. Drone. Drone. Drone. Drone. Drink. Of course the game gets a little mixed up when it comes to the Obamartini – made with Absolut Zero.
And then there was Barry’s Audacity of Hype. Did he really say “My finely honed political instincts”? Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! I can’t breathe! First off, Barack, you are a politician. Second, all of our taxes are spent on the entitlements. Everything else is funded by loans. Barack, you are a fiscal imbecile. “Gubmint cheese is the best cheese there is. And it is free. Free for you and free for me,” – the essence of Obama’s talk about his stash and entitlements. “I’ll take Manchurian Candidate for $500, Alex.” Ahhh, Komrades. It is boootiful day in USSA. Did he say corpseman? This dumbass couldn’t even pass a middle school speech class. By Friday afternoon he will backpedal on everything he said by making what he said “perfectly clear”. Got it? For the Obamassiah, there is no issue he cannot straddle. Oh fer cryin’ out loud. Did he just denounce his own 2012 budget? Is he mentally challenged? Does he not recall what he threw out in January? Obama is nothing but a Puppet of Meat. Yo, Meat Puppet! Nobody’s clapping so quit waiting for the applause. It ain’t coming your way.
Is there any doubt about his Marxism? Like was said up front, Obama’s stupidity goes beyond the pale. What level of Hell has the United States of America sunk to when Obama’s sophist rhetoric is actually taken seriously? Isn’t America starting to feel a bit bloated from all the smoke being blown up its collective arse? Furthermore, what the Hell is a Kwag-mahr? Is Kwag-marh a city in Pohkeesstohn?
Four trillion in cuts over 12 years…backed by his “fail-safe” guaranty. Wimpy: “I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.” LOL, when has congress ever followed up on a guarantee? Lock box anyone? America is going to have to practice bending over a LOT more… Can this get any worse? Of course it can! Darn it, Mr. President, would you at least treat us to dinner and a movie first?
Obama’s pandering for the senior vote is getting old. Note to Obama: You have lost the senior vote and you will not get it back. You stupid meat puppet teleprompter reading political hack. We all find you taxing, which explains this:
The Tax System – Explained With Beer
Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100.
If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:
- The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
- The fifth would pay $1.
- The sixth would pay $3.
- The seventh would pay $7.
- The eighth would pay $12.
- The ninth would pay $18.
- The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.
So, that’s what they decided to do.
The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve.
‘Since you are all such good customers,’ he said, ‘I’m going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20.’
‘Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.’
The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the other six men – the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his ‘fair share?’
They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody’s share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.
- The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
- The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings) .
- The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28%savings) .
- The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 ( 25% savings).
- The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 ( 22% savings).
- The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).
Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.
‘I only got a dollar out of the $20,’ declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man, ‘but he got $10!’
‘Yeah, that’s right,’ exclaimed the fifth man. ‘I only saved a dollar, too. It’s unfair that he got ten times more than I!’
‘That’s true!!’ shouted the seventh man. ‘Why should he get $10 back when I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!’
‘Wait a minute,’ yelled the first four men in unison. ‘We didn’t get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!’
The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.
The next night the tenth man didn’t show up for drinks, so the nine sat down and had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn’t have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill!
And that, boys and girls, journalists and college professors, is how our tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

So Barry, what are we cutting in order to balance the budget? Oh, I see, you’re cutting employment and taxing the rich. Great plan!!! Okay, JackWagon, WHAT DO WE CUT? – Besides Defense? Typical Obama speech, lots of hype and no substance. I thought Pakistan said no more drones. Obama never ceases to amaze. He is laying on the lies and class warfare like there’s no tomorrow. Logic isn’t his strong suit. Come to think of it…nothing is his strong suit…unless flies on the lip count for something. America felt like it was watching tennis during Obama’s speech. Left – right, left – right. Teleprompter 1, teleprompter 2.
Obama could have stood on the podium and picked his nose for 30 minutes. The Main Stream Media would have still declared the speech a victory, and that was that. Obama throws out accusations at conservatives but offers no plan of his own. He avoids specifics like the plague. You can just envision Obama saying something like this: “I will give every American everything they want and it won’t cost a cent. I’m leaving it to Congress to figure out how to make that happen.”
The jackwagoniest of jackwagons; what a miserable, pathetic president we have. Expectations for today’s speech were low, but he still managed to hook an ankle on the bar he could have easily stepped over.
The highlight of the speech was Rip Van Biden’s reaction to it – which was a big effing deal! Joe slept though it!
See the photo for proof. Old Joe has heard the commie spiel so many times that he can doze off through an entire progressive speech and not miss a thing. No big deal, Joe. The rest of the country was going comatose, too. All you missed, Joe, was Obama saying “My vision for America is one where we live within our means, blinded by my socialistic government ideology.” Got it, Joe? Good! Now, remember, Joe, that for the rest of us our vision for America is to wipe away all you FDR/Johnson/LBJ/progressing/Obama stains from our Republic. All we know is that Obama’s plan is heavy on the “fail” and light on the “safe.” Obama says he wants America to live within its means? Okay! – Then no more flying in a favorite chef from Chicago to make pizza at the White House. No more ridiculously expensive vacations on the public’s dime! No more lobster deliveries for Michelle. No more flying Obama’s dog Bo around on his own private jet. Man, I dunno. I mean, it’s probably pretty hard subsisting on a $15T budget. Perhaps Obama meant everybody but the government has to live within their means. There, that’s better! Be thankful for small gifts, America – at least he’s not using the stupid Slurpee story anymore.
That’s an F+ for effort, Barry, and a G- for substance. “My vision for America is one where we live within our means.” No it’s not, Barry. LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR!
Gene Roddenberry was a prophet. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present Landreu, the automated president….programmed to respond. Click, whir, Dolby Sound enabled. Here’s Barry at his best:
“Let me be clear, as I’ve always said the time for change is now and we are the ones we’ve been waiting for. Thank you and goodnight.” – Barack Hussein Obama
Voters narrowly approved issuing $9.95 billion in bonds, with expectations that the federal government and private investors would cover the rest. But after the election, cost estimates rose to $43 billion for the Los Angeles-San Francisco project alone.
Also, the one-way fare between the two cities was predicted to be $55, making it cheaper than flying. But after the election, ticket price estimates rose to $105, observes Adam B. Summers, a policy analyst at the Reason Foundation.
“Like most large public infrastructure projects, the California high-speed rail project was sold to the public based on false promises, exaggerated benefits and low-ball cost estimates,” Summers writes in an opinion piece for the San Diego Union-Tribune.
He points out that ridership estimates are projected as high as 117 million passengers per year. Yet the entire Amtrak system, which includes more than 500 destinations and 21,000 miles of track, serves just 27 million passengers a year. (emphasis mine)
The actual cost is over 400% of the original projections, ( lies ) the ridership projections are so inflated that it is almost beyond comprehension, as in Amtrak serving 27 million riders a year while the scheming politicians and fraudsters had the people of California believing that this high-speed rail project would have 117 million riders a year. WOW. Where the hell did Californians think all these riders would come from? False promises, exaggerated revenue projections and benefits and low-ball cost estimates, and the people of California bought it up like $10 dollar Gucci handbags at a flea market! Right there we see every reason Governor Scott turned down this rail scheme, and he is proven to be 100% correct, and yet we still have some morons down here in Florida, ( The St Pete Times to name the biggest one ) crying about his decision. Amazing.
Mr Summers also pointed out the insanity of this boondoggle was exposed as early as 2008, yet the corruto-crats and the California media puppets of the Liberal machine kept the truth from the people:
Summers notes that a September 2008 study published by the Reason Foundation and the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association found that the actual cost of the high-speed rail system would be at least $65 billion and perhaps as high as $81 billion, and that “the project was not viable because it was based on wildly optimistic assumptions.”
Governors in Florida, Ohio, and Wisconsin have recently canceled plans for high-speed rail projects in their states. Summers urges that California, which is running deficits of up to $25 billion a year, “should follow their example and put a stop to this boondoggle before it becomes yet another budgetary black hole for the state.”
Thank you Governor Scott and the other Governors that have protected the taxpayers by refusing this Liberal high-speed rail scheme that is being promoted by most of the lame media puppets across America today. I hereby issue a challenge to ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, and Fox to report this information on the high-0speed rail rip-off that now hangs over the California taxpayers heads for decades to come, all simply because of media manipulation, malpractice and flat out lies. What say you MSM ?
Governor Pat Quinn, of Illinois recently signed into law the abolishment of the death penalty, and he also commuted all death row inmates sentences to life without parole. When the abolition law takes effect July 1, Illinois becomes the 16th state without a death penalty. This issue can be very dangerous politically, as it has both fierce support and opposition in almost all walks of life. Why is it that some people can be against abortion, yet have spoken up in support of the death penalty, or vice versa? The answer to that question lies within the auspices of perception management, propaganda campaigns, and the usage of *nudging* society to believe right is wrong or lies to be the truth.
Take for instance the hard core religious voters. While the bible says an eye for an eye, which should be quite self-explanatory, many Christians feel the death penalty is somehow inhumane or unfair. You know, turn the other cheek and all that kind of stuff, and forgive those who sin against us. Yet many people who have been victimized by the crazed murderers, rapists, and violent criminals of society, who have had their family crushed by the grief caused by these madmen, feel they are unworthy of living in a country where the rest of the citizens have to live by the rule of law and are held accountable for their actions. They then want them executed. The death penalty is the greatest deterrent we have in controlling the career criminals and murderers that prey on the decent people of our country. They tend think twice of killing someone in cold blood, knowing that they themselves will be killed in return for the malicious actions. That is just a common sense fact of life, and it the main reason the death penalty was created in the first place.
The main problem in the death penalty debate seems to be indicative of the problems plaguing our country today, which stems from false perceptions being promoting by self-serving small groups representing a minority of people or instances that occurr in society. A great example of this can be seen in the case of the environmental activists, (whom are mostly supported and funded by the Leftists in America today), and how they are stopping us from using our own oil, while at the same time promoting green energy that is decades from becoming viable. Gasoline is now $4.00 a gallon in many States today and is expected to go much higher this summer, while billions of barrels of oil sit in South Dakota and Alaska untapped. This is directly due to the usage of false propaganda and data manipulation to create a false perception that we will all burn up tomorrow if we don’t stop using oil, the greatest energy resource on earth. These people have proven to have manipulated data and flat out lied to advance their socialist agenda, yet this minority of green freaks, backed by leftist progressives, has been allowed to cripple our own natural resources usage. Then they have the audacity to holdup signs demanding that we decrease our dependence on Foreign oil through green scams like the now known to be very problematic, Chevy Volt. Noone ever talks about the oil burning electricity it takes to charge those cars. That is just plain ludicrous.
This same method of creating false perceptions has now created another travesty within the death penalty debate, yet it is one that these States that are abolishing the death penalty refuse to acknowledge. That being the huge expense of housing, feeding, medical care and securing mass murderers and the worst criminals of society for decades. In doing my research for this article, I got to thinking about just who would be behind this push to abolish the death penalty. Meet the NCADP*, or the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty.*
Here is just 3 of the 10 false perception propaganda lies they promote on their own homepage*:
1. Executions are carried out at staggering cost to taxpayers. Here they want you to believe that the cost of a lethal injection, costs you more than housing, feeding, and securing these criminals for 20,30,40, and even 50 years! . They are creating a false perception that simply is not true.
2. Capital punishment does not deter crime. Here they use an unnamed scientific study to try to make you believe that the death penalty does not deter serious, violent criminal activity. It is human nature and instinct to want to live as long as possible. When a criminal steps into the world of possibly murdering someone, I do not believe for one minute that the majority of them don’t think about receiving the death penalty when they get caught. They also do not take into account the people who commit crimes that could result in the death penalty that actually have their own perverted death wish. For one reason or the other they don’t want to live any more, therefore they want the death penalty. So the death penalty does deter crime. They are creating a false perception that simply is not true.
4. Race plays a role in determining who lives and who dies. Since 1977, blacks and whites have been the victims of murders in almost equal numbers, yet 80% of the people executed in that period were convicted of murders involving white victims: Here we have the ever-popular leftist tactic of playing the race card. The NCADP doesn’t think you are smart enough to know that when the U. S. population has been predominantly white for decades, more whites will be the victims of murder. The reason that these numbers are proven to be wrong is in another fact that they fail to produce. At one point in recent history, when blacks compromised 17% of our population, they were responsible for over 70% of the violent crimes in America. Things such as black on black crime statistics have fluctuated immensely, depending on who you believe today also. Since the NCADP wants to inject the race card into the death penaly debate, I shall help them out with some statistics from the Justice Department in 1995 from ourcivilizaion.com**:
Almost 1 million white Americans were murdered, robbed, assaulted or raped by black Americans in 1992, compared with about 132,000 blacks who were murdered, robbed, assaulted or raped by whites, according to the same survey.
Blacks thus committed 7.5 times more violent inter-racial crimes than whites even though the black population is only one-seventh the size of the white population. When these figures are adjusted on a per capita basis, they reveal an extraordinary disparity: blacks are committing more than 50 times the number of violent racial crimes of whites.
According to the latest annual report on murder by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, most inter-racial murders involve black assailants and white victims, with blacks murdering whites at 18 times the rate that whites murder blacks.
With statistics like those above, we see just how far the NCADP goes in creating a false perception that simply is not true. The fact is, that the death penalty is an important tool in deterring violent crime and murder in the United States today, and has been since it’s inception. It also helps prevent prison overcrowding and the very expensive burden of keeping these criminals from further harming society. It is also a form of closure for the many families that have been destroyed by the murder of a loved one, parent, or main breadwinner. The bottom line here, is that we see once again how data and information are being distorted to push a group’s agenda through the blatant use of propaganda. The two men I consider to be the godfather’s of propaganda usage in America, Saul Alinsky and Edward Bernays would be quite proud of the NCADP’s usage of propaganda campaigns to abolish the death penalty in America today. As we see noted above, it has already been abolished in 16 states or almost 1/3 of the total states in America.
Update for those who may doubt the progressive mindset and patterns of propaganda inherent in the NCADP, here is an interesting fact: NCADP is grateful for the support of Working Assets/CREDO as a 2009 grant recipient. Click here to learn more about Working Assets/CREDO and become a customer. Help us become a 2010 grant recipient by nominating us here.
Yes your tax dollars are being funneled to support another progressive propaganda group here. Just who are the Working Assets*** clan? Well this statement is from from their own homepage: “A legacy of progress: Since 1985, our members have raised over $65 million for progressive nonprofits.” As they say if you dig deep enough into progressive so-called non-profit propaganda arms today, you will see your taxpayer dollars being used to further their Socialist agenda.
