My predictions for the 2014 and 2016 elections!

Come the fall elections of 2014, it will be a bloodbath as far as the Democratic Party is concerned. It almost doesn't matter what the Blue Party does. (I don't think them even walking on water would be a cure for the millions of Americans who will have realized just how screwed the got with the implementation of Obamacare). The Republicans will keep the House and take over the Senate.

Then, in 2016 with Hillary Clinton the most likely person to represent the Left and the Democratic Party, yet another blood bath as I would venture that even a person like myself could be elected President on the Republican ticket! This election won't even be close!

Did I miss a tax? Is a Revolution near?

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
Anyway!

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid.

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

YOU ALL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?

Not one of these taxes existed 60 years ago, & our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had a large middle class, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

You want to know something else patriots? The last time we had ourselves a good old Revolution, it was over a lousy STAMP TAX!

America! What in the hell has happened to us? Can you spell 'politicians?'

A State with No Republicans!

Very interesting...Note this. A US State with zero Republicans in office  - The State of Illinois. Think about this. 

Some interesting data on the 'state' of Illinois ...  There are more people on welfare in Illinois than there are people working. Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. averaging $110,000/year. Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what? Be sure to read till the end. I've never heard it explained better. Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago ?  Body count: In the last six months, 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago .   221 killed in Iraq ; AND  Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.

Here's the Chicago chain of command:  President: Barack Hussein Obama · Senator: Dick Durbin · House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr. · Governor: Pat Quinn · House leader: Mike Madigan · Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike) · Mayor: Rohm Emanuel · The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats. · Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago . · Of course, they're all blaming each other. · Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any! ·

Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country.  Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!

State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country.  Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!

 Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!

This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois . And he is going to 'fix' Washington politics for us?

George Ryan is no longer Governor, he's in the prison.

He was replaced by Rob Blajegovitch who is that's right, he's also in prison.

And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned a couple of weeks ago, because he is fighting to not be sent to...that's right, prison.

 The Land of Lincoln , where our governors make our license plates.
   
But you know what? 

 As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago , nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does.

 "Anybody who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him; better take a closer look at the American Indian."

Don’t forget Detroit another good example. 
 
Some of you might find these data interesting. ALL SHOULD.
There are actually two messages here.  The first is very interesting,
 but the second is absolutely astounding -- and explains a lot!
 
A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:

              U.S.                      65%
              England                46%
              Canada                 42%
 
Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:

              U.S.                      93%
              England                15%
              Canada                 43%

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six
months:
              U.S.                      90%
              England                15%
              Canada                 43%

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:

              U.S.                      77%
              England                40%
              Canada                 43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:

              U.S.                       71
             England                 14
             Canada                  18

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in "excellent health":

              U.S.                     12%
              England                2%
              Canada                 6%

And now for the last statistic:

            National Health Insurance?

              U.S.                     NO
             England               YES
             Canada                YES

And check this last set of statistics!! 

The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet..... You know what the private business sector is?  A real-life business, not a Government job.  Here are the percentages:

            T. Roosevelt................... 38%
            Taft.................................40%
            Wilson ........................... 52%
            Harding.......................... 49%
            Coolidge........................  48%
            Hoover ..........................42%
            F. Roosevelt................... 50%
            Truman...........................50%
            Eisenhower....................  57%
            Kennedy......................... 30%
            Johnson..........................47%
            Nixon..............................53%
            Ford................................42%
            Carter.............................32%
            Reagan...........................56%
            GH Bush.........................51%
            Clinton  ..........................39%
            GW Bush........................55%
            Obama............................. 8%

This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration: only 8% of them have ever worked in private business!

That's right!  Only eight percent -- the least, by far, of the last 19 presidents!  And these people are trying to tell our big Corporations how to run their business?

How can the president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he's never worked for one?  Or about jobs when he has never really had one?  And when it's the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers?

They've spent most of their time in academia, Government and/or non-profit jobs or as "community organizers."  They should have been in an employment line.
  

Remember!

"One of the penalties of not participating in politics is that you will be governed by your inferiors."  - Plato


“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy;
Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery” ...  Winston Churchill

There goes the old can yet again!

The slugs and slugettes on Capitol Hill have done it yet again. They've managed to shirk their collective political responsibilities, in front of the world in general ,and displayed what it means to lack any meaningful or rudimentary form of leadership. I tell you, it's just sickening to watch!

And, during these pasts weeks, Obama never came forward other than than to say he would not negotiate. Like some evil spider, he spins his web of socialism, while his chef puppet, Reid insures that millions will view them both as complete idiots who are out of their depth professionally. Good job you too! Now, we get to do this all over again in January as the ratchet of credit liability grows ever tighter around our fiscal throat.

I will tell you true, I am totally ashamed to live in a such a great Republic and yet have to suffer, day by day, such abject retardation and humiliation as what I see so plainly displayed on the national stage by these individuals; whether they be Democrat or Republican. An American Revolution, should one form, may well come as a welcome relief to millions...

What if (when) America gets nuked!

At some point in time, America will eventually get nuked. Disregarding, for the moment, the specific type of nuclear device that a terrorist might use, I'd like to focus on just where such a device might ignited...
Just for the sake of argument, let's assume that at some point some terrorist organization will effectively detonate an existing (i.e. stolen)1 nuclear device with a nominal yield of 475 kilotons2. The relevant questions would then center around the devices geographic location and the elevation above ground level. Let's look at each...

Geographic location

When ever a nuclear device is detonated, large amount of radioactive nucleotides are generated, primarily from the debris that are sucked up into the expanding ball of fire. The breakdown or half life of these particles can be anywhere from seconds to thousands of years and they can be scattered far down wind of wherever they are generated. This debris field can stretch for hundreds of miles, sickening or killing all who come in contact wit it. So, the 'fallout field' can be of importance to the terrorists as to where they place the bomb. Some likely locations might be Kansas City, Chicago or points east as the prevailing wind currents would then affect other population centers.

Elevation

Critical to the type of damage a device would do concerns how high up it is. A low ground burst would max out the damage radius while at the same time would generate a lot of fallout, while a high latitude burst would max the EMP effect which could effectively render many electronic devices inoperative. In either case, many millions of people would be effectively terrorized and that, after all is the real intent in the first place!

The bottom line is that any device, be it crude or sophisticated, would effectively place a high degree of stress on the psychological profile and resilience of our nation. Markets would likely crash, transportation would be disrupted, food networks hurt and it would take a long long time for things to get back to 'normal. Just look at what three planes did to America in 2001! They ended up costing the country close to a trillion dollars and changed the way we do business and live our lives to this day!

1 – Most of the literature I've been able to read indicates that a 'home built' crude nuclear device would be very problematic to construct.

2 – The average yield of a single W88 thermonuclear warhead.

The intelligence curve and political affiliations!

The question that came to my mind while viewing an intelligence curve one afternoon was whether or not there was a correlation that existed between a person's IQ and there they fell on the political spectrum. Perhaps not surprisingly, there were studies that supported both concepts; that smart people gravitate both towards conservative values and liberalism and vice versa for those of lesser intelligence.

My personal theory is that party affiliation can be driven both by intelligence and by maturity in a temporal manner. That is to say, young smart people tend to be liberal and then as they age and become more monied, assume progressively more conservative values. On the other side of the spectrum, people of lesser intelligence tend to be of either political persuasion when young, but then tend to favor any political institution that will give them added support as they age and find themselves in in more challenging financial circumstances; ergo they tend to swing further left as time goes on. The end result is a stacking either left or right depending on age and financial status.

The Louisiana Gun on President Obama!


I do so admire this man...
Please note that I have very close friends who are colored as well as friends of Hispanic and Asian decent. All of them, without exception are walking creations of God. Obama...well.. he and his Left Wing nut jobs are in a class all unto themselves.

President Obama's worst nightmare!

March 15, 2014 dawned like any other day. President Obama rose from his bed knowing that he was facing some tough challenges as food riots were erupting across the land. Decades of reckless spending had finally come home to roost as double digit inflation caused wholesale food prices to rocket. Unknown to him, an offshoot al Qaeda group was making final preparations to detonate a nuclear device in down town Manhattan. Also, unknown to him and the rest of civilization, a major earthquake was about occur just off the coast of southern California. The resulting 50 foot high tsunami would devastate Los Angeles and other nearby cities causing billions of damage not to mention the shutdown and implosion of the Diablo Canyon nuclear power facility which released millions of cubic tons of radioactive debris.

Later that day, standing in front of a podium before a rapt national audience, our president calmly blamed it all on Bush....

I wonder how history will treat Obama?


How will history treat our President Obama? Man, that's a toughie. I think that any review would want to start with what he has actually accomplished in over 5 years in office:
.
.
.
ObamaCare
.
.
.
.
OK, not much there so far, but to be fair, he had a lot of problems with the economy he inherited from Bush (ahem). But take heart! Obama still has THREE MORE YEARS to enact legislation that he feels is important and pressing! Let's see now, there is;

A Carbon Tax on coal that will cause our electric rates to 'necessarily skyrocket' - his words, not mind.

An Immigration Bill to allow most anyone who wants to join the American Democratic Party to just come on in. Yeah, that outta work out well.

More and better Entitlement Programs to fund things like our still failing system of Education ... Uh, you might ask where's the money gonna come for that - why the President's stash of course!

A Balanced Budget! Actually, I'm just jacking you on that one....

Your Gov is right here waiting for you! Yeah, sure!



BEFORE YOU PLAY THIS OLD VID! PLEASE READ BELOW~!


WARNING! If you are young, healthy and intelligent, why the hell would you ever fall for this Obamacare BS? Research it, talk about it, Tweet it and then... please, just walk away from it! You're individual destiny is what you make. The destiny of your country is what you make it as a people. Please don't let some old man on Capitol Hill cast that destiny for you...

God Bless America and all those who love her and the freedoms won so dearly through the blood of past fallen Patriots! Actually, for the rest of a desperate world, the Statue of Liberty is always there waiting...

Note: This video was from a now defunct Finnish group known as the Nylon Beat. Please check them out on my YouTube Channel!

A Nation in disarray!


It is my hope, that at some point during this latest Federal shutdown, a few of the 800K furloughed employees will contemplate on what's going to happen to all of us going forward. There are three things that I can think of off hand....

First, they will come to understand that these Federal shutdowns will become the 'new normal'. Out of necessity, they can only increase in number and each time the severity will be greater. Why? Because there is no where else for this Country to run! The Administration's back is up against the wall and everyone knows it. At the time of this post, another CR is just six weeks away! And, there will be yet another after that in December... Crisis after crisis after crisis with no country who can or is even able to bail us out! Today, the only infusion of 'new' money to support our failing economy is the 'funny money' that the Fed is printing. And, even that isn't going to work much longer. Our Congressmen and women, now at only a 10% approval rating, are coming under increasing pressure to raise more taxes in order to continue pumping billions and billions into frayed entitlement and infrastructure programs. An orgy of spending by Capitol Hill that, in or itself, needs four trillion a year just to keep itself afloat!

Second. Obamacare is not only just a train wreck. It's an infected chancre of convoluted legislation whose poison will take years to work its way through the body politic. And, by the time all the supporters of this law, (the scared, the old and the infirm) come to realize they've been thrown under the bus, it will be far too late. (Incidentally, I predict the year twenty fourteen will be a horrible election cycle for the Democratic Party. But, you know what? At that juncture it simply won't matter who is or who comes into power). By 2014, the country may well be reeling from the cumulative effects of massive tax increases even as a bloated, cancerous and incompetent government grows ever larger. Money will flow uphill like some incredible river with only a trickle coming back down to the average citizen. Money that no longer expands the economy, but rather sustains the slow rot that is killing it. Millions of lives will be permanently wrecked from the synergistic effects of poor & inadequate healthcare, too few working hours and a general loss of faith. (And, our boy Obama? Why, he'll still have two more glorious years to go...)

Third. As our Republic reels continues to reel back and forth from one crisis to another, I'm sure the other world powers will be eying this piece of real estate with increasing interest. Iran, soon to be a nuclear power, may start things off with a nice little war with Israel as they try their best to wipe that country off the face of the map. In that event, I predict Obama will just stand by and watch. Maybe he'll give a good speech. I don't know. But, if he does, it will be an empty speech none the less. You see, America is fast losing her status as the last bastion of freedom. She has become darker and more diminished in the eyes of the world. and, she may well be forced to stand idly by as Muslim extremists consolidate and bring together a new caliphate – an assembly of Islamic peoples that will bow (willingly or not willingly) to Allah, while the women of that world are reduced to the status of cattle.

Are these the disjointed musings of a demented old man? On this day, while sitting at home, I'm not even 100 feet from a gate that bars me access to a much loved park... Let the games begin!

You are so a f'ing special creep!


Ignore the video portion, please close your eyes, sit back, and concentrate on this very awesome audio track! We're all so special~! And, maybe a bit creepy! At least, I am! Also, please do not share this one!

Whoppers and outrageous lies!

Ya just gotta love our enemies and the way in which they are leading our President down that flowery path! In my opinion, Obama and his Congress have done more damage to our Republic than any who have come before. Allow me to cite a few examples:

The Affordable Care Act - You're just gonna love it!

Starting on October 1st, online exchanges of insurance will allow consumers to compare insurance plans like they compare flat screen TVs (none currently exist in Missouri as of September the 17th). Obama asserts that market forces will push costs down on the exchanges. He references that average premiums in New York for people buying insurance will be 50% lower. Self-employed people could save thousands of dollars a year, he says. This means hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers who don’t have insurance will be able to afford it. This is an example of how the Affordable Care Act is doing what it is designed to do.

Really?? So how is it that why providers like Blue Cross are raising their premiums 20% across the board? Is that why why 60% of Americans are unhappy right this second? How are they gonna feel when it really kicks in in 2014?

Key Iranian official says new leadership more ready to compromise to reach nuclear deal!

Ya don't say?? I won't even go into this bunch of malarkey again. Apparently Iran has figured out the 'new leadership' angle is the perfect vehicle in which to continue feeding the US Administration a load of BS, while finishing up their nuclear missile testing program. (Hell, that delaying tactic has worked for over a decade, so why not dust it off and spin it to a gullible president Obama and his stooge Kerry). 'Another spoonful of sugar for your tea, Mr. President?'

Fort Hood survivors to get little or no money!

“An attorney for the Army psychiatrist who killed 13 people in a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas in 2009 has said that almost all of the gunman's salary has been donated to charity, making it likely that his victims would receive very little or no compensation for their trauma.”

Oh, yes! And forget about any federal benefits as this is still considered 'workplace violence' by Obama and friends!

No public tours, but 344 visits by lobbyists to the White House!

'Regular American citizens visiting the nation's capital lost access to the White House in March as President Obama eliminated public tours to make a point in his battle with House Republicans in the sequestration debate over cutting spending or raising taxes.

But hundreds of K Street lobbyists, including corporate advocates who are paid to influence policy on behalf of Fortune 500 giants, saw no change in their access to the chief executive and his senior aides, according to a Washington Examiner analysis of White House visitor logs and lobbying records.'

What gives? Here we have a situation where the average citizen is denied access to a building we own while pork laden lobbyists are allowed clandestine entry to brew up more trouble. If you wonder what the president is up to in the White House these days – well, just keep on wondering.

Is the perfect storm coming?

When I look around at what's going on both in the US and abroad, all I can see are storm clouds closing in all around. Let me break a few of them down;
  1. At some point the Fed will have to quit with the Quantitative Easing bullshit and at that time the stock market will take a hell of a dive. This could happen as early as September 18th and if it does, look for interest rates to skyrocket!

  2. The Middle East is on a razors edge with warships representing the US, Russia and China all grouped together in one spot. Putin is grabbing and asserting his power while at the same time playing President Obama like he's some kind of dullard. Iran is rapidly moving towards nuclear capability and the United Islamic Extremists are pushing towards a Caliphate. A true powder keg getting ready to explode...

  3. Drastic cuts in the military have and are decimating my country's ability to be an effective force. This at a time when China, Russia and Iran are building their military infrastructure just as fast as they can go!

  4. The Unites States Congress has become so entrenched and divided, that even common sense legislation is stuck in neutral with nothing getting done.

  5. A debt ceiling crisis is looming, in just thirty days, and spending cuts or even basic efforts to curtail government spending look to have already been tossed out.

  6. The Affordable Health-care Act begins to kick in in earnest in just a couple of weeks with the so-called state health exchanges in a state of complete chaos.

  7. President Obama increasingly has become embroiled in a series of scandals (24 at last count) concerning agencies like the IRS and the NSA. Scandals that have shaken the confidence of millions of Americans.

  8. The world's opinion of the United States and it's belief that she can take care of her allies are at an all time low.

  9. Winter is coming on and more and more citizens are finding themselves with only part time jobs or no jobs at all. And, to add insult to injury, many will receive notices of large increases in even basic health care.

  10. And worst of all...our great Republic is lacking the leadership to turn it all around!
God! Please help and protect the United States of America!

USPS – Poor service and always late!

You package is currently here!
Against my better judgment, I ordered a product from a company called Aware Electronics out of Chadds Ford, PA recently and once again as has always been the case in the past, this joke of a government run agency lies through its business teeth when you ship something Priority Mail 3-Day! This cluster fuck of an agency couldn't get get a package delivered, even if the address was just across the street, in under five days!

I have made a solemn promise to myself to NEVER EVER use this asinine excuse for a company again. It is the absolute poster child for everything that is wrong with our sad excuse for a government! There! I've vented and will remember next time that if a product can't be shipped UPS, then it ain't getting purchased by me!

Obama needs to correct Americans on the upcoming Muslim march!

The American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC) is organizing a March on Washington on Sept. 11, 2013, a date that coincides (by accident?) with the deaths of nearly 3,000 innocents on the same date in 2001 due to extremists. They are proudly marching to protest the poor treatment they've received from other Americans who perhaps confuse them with Islamic terrorists, even though they are so no those people! According to the group, "Muslim and Non Muslim alike were traumatized, but we as Muslims continue 12 years later to be victimized by being made the villains. To this day, every media outlet and anti Islamic organization has committed slanderous and libel statements against us as Muslims and our religion of Islam." No way, I say!!


President Obama, this could be a shinning moment where you could yet turn all the negatives of your term in office around. I feel you must consider going on National TV so you can let us slow witted Americans know that Muslims are actually a peaceful and non-intrusive religious order that just want to spread the 'truth' about Sharia Law and how it could fit right in with American ideals. And, Mr. president, this could all happen under your wise and so progressive watch. And please remember, we must all learn to be more tolerant of everyone who is not like us.

Detroit! A model for the future?

After declaring bankruptcy, Detroit has become the defacto poster child for what Americans can expect in their cities as the Democrats continue to solidify their base through lies, promises, smoke and mirrors.

And what will the hard working American middle class do about it....absolutely nothing.

Obama's house of cards!

With three more year's of President Obama's 'special' form of leadership to go, we need to do all we can to show him our support for a house that is looking more and more like it's made out of cards. I especially like his 'it's my way or the highway' attitude to the American public and the 7 trillion in debt he's manage to burden the nation with in just four years...

Islam Is Cult for Terrorism

There’s something that seems to be missing in the debate pursuant to discussions of Islam and terrorism — and that omission should be as troubling as a skunk at a picnic. We are not discussing what happens when a person embraces Islam. Especially young people.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev shot dead at age 26 in a dramatic shoot-out with Boston Police and 19-year-old brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, also wounded in a shoot-out with police, were raised in America. They attended the best schools in America, they participated in America’s cultural activities and sports. Dzhokhar was given a $2,500 scholarship to help with college tuition.


My Thoughts: This was a well thought out article that appeared in the Daily Rant was written by Mychal S. Massie who is the former National Chairman of the conservative black think tank, Project 21-The National Leadership Network of Black Conservatives; and a member of its’ parent think tank, the National Center for Public Policy Research.  

How long before this ticking viral time bomb goes off?

A new bird flu strain that has killed 22 people in China is "one of the most lethal" of its kind and transmits more easily to humans than another strain that has killed hundreds since 2003, a World Health Organization (WHO) expert said on Wednesday.

The H7N9 flu has infected 108 people in China since it was first detected in March, according to the Geneva-based WHO.

My thoughts: I definitely do not like the trend I’m seeing in China. The continue mixing of people, poultry and swine in close living quarters provides the perfect crucible for the development of a flu strain that will eventually become both very contagious and very deadly all at the same time!

Democrats vow to impose strict gun control even if it takes years!

Supporters of new gun control legislation are vowing to ramp up their campaign for expanded background checks despite suffering a major defeat in the Senate Wednesday, threatening to overpower the gun lobby even if it takes years. 

My thoughts: With any luck, the Democratic bozos who are currently in office won’t be there for much longer.

Thirteen now dead from new strain of bird flu in China!

Two more people have died in China from a new strain of bird flu, raising the death toll from the virus to 13, state media reported Sunday.


My thoughts: China is notorious for under-reporting flu infections and causalities. This particular strain of avian or bird flu is extremely deadly and if there is an outbreak going on that involves person to person transmission,  then a scenario similar to the movie 'Contagion' could ensue.

A letter to the People from the Confederation of Criminals and Thugs!

Look all youse guys, we here at the CC&T feel just like those Democrats do about all you civilians owning guns! You need to turn them in, cause frankly they’re making our jobs that much more of a problem to do. (Our members work at all sorts of odd hours and getting shot by some homeowner with a gun is messing up our healthcare packages big time). You all should listen to your President and turn your firearms in today! Let the police handle people like us. You see, they are trained to give us every consideration and benefit of the doubt, no matter how bad one of us may have f’d someone up!

What it all comes down to is that we are just doing what the President wants the Nation to do. That is the redistribution of wealth directly to poor people like us! Seriously, the only difference between Obama and a dink like Jimmy the Hood is that Obama’s methods take forever, whereas Jimmy can improve his bottom line in just one nights work! Now that’s what we like to call redistribution at the speed of light!

So, listen up dummies, when an icon like Harry Reid (who is protected by guns 24/7) tells you people what’s good for you to do! You all are ‘too dumb to be handling guns’! (Hey! That rhymes).. Ya’ll do that and we promise we won’t beat the living crap out of you when next we pay youse a personal visit at three in the morning!

In the End - Linkin Park...

I never connected this older video by Linkin Park with what is going on today, politically right here and right now, in the US. (I guess I'm slow in that respect)! But, yes here we are, after all of us have tried so hard and for so many years to do those things that were right, honest and just.. Yet, in the end, they didn't really matter very much... Thanks President Obama! Thanks for nothing...

When war breaks out in Korea, what effect will it have on US?

After Pyongyang said Monday it would pull out its 53,000 workers at the complex, which began production in 2004 and is the biggest employer in the North's third-biggest city, rumors have grown that war between the South and the North could break out at any moment. Some pundits are now asking when and not if...

Should war erupt between North and South Korea a lot will suddenly be at steak and for many players. Chief among these would be South Korea and the magnitude of her response to naked aggression by the North. On the heels of that would come the response by both China and the United States as a traditionally shaky alliance in the delta region becomes shattered by war. With warships from the US and other allies already patrolling the waters off the coast to support not only the South but also the 28 thousand troops stationed there, things could become dicey rather quickly. And any use of nuclear weapons, no matter how crude by the North, would be a definite game changer that would have instant ramifications all across the globe!

It would also appear now that perhaps all the bargaining chips are off the table as both sides have become so entrenched in their respective positions; the UN Security Council representing the West versus North Korea lead by Kim Jong Un, a man who it appears is happy to let his people suffer just to show the world he is upset with the US.

As of this point in time, there is no way that this situation will have a good ending other than if Kim’s regime is overthrown and both the North and South become re-unified. A move that would be applauded by much or the West while at the same time greatly feared by the Chinese government.

Gun owners refuse to obey new gun law in New York!

After Democrats in New York rammed a sweeping assault on the right to keep and bear arms through the legislature that failed to exempt police officers from the draconian restrictions, gun owners and even some lawmakers are planning what has been dubbed potentially the largest act of civil disobedience in state history. According to news reports, gun rights activists are urging everyone to defy far-left Governor Andrew Cuomo’s new registration mandate while daring authorities to “come and take it.”


My thoughts: Well I'm sure you know, the law is the law and in view of what looks to be the great potential for massive defiance of this ‘well thought-out’ law, I can only guess that Cuomo will be forced to impose MARTIAL LAW on his minions! Then, it will be up to the police to seek out, identify and confiscate those illegal and unregistered weapons from these 'nouveau  criminal elements' who apparently have so little disregard for the law of the land. I'll even wager a bet that prosecutors for the state will ask that this crime be considered a Class D felony! And as such, all these men and women should considered felons after they've been found guilty in a court of law. I say let justice be done in the New Progressive Obama United States!

Just say no to Kim Jong Un and then ignore him!



Click on picture to enlarge
The picture here tells a story of two worlds; a prosperous South Korea that lights the sky up at night, and of North Korea, a dark country with tens of millions of its citizens living in Medieval squalor. One country, is a working and thriving Democracy while the other is lead by an irresponsible tyrant who is just begging to be hanged.

I would think that the world (and America) has just about had it with Kim Jong Un and his incestuous regime. A festering sore that may soon require the lance to cure. The world should elect to wall the country off and then let nature take its course. Either one of two results would quickly ensue; 1) Kim will make the mistake of attacking Allied interests, in which case Pyongyang will be leveled and the last ‘lights’ in the North would be turned off, or 2) his own starving people will rise up and form a lynch party. Either way the problem will get solved and then perhaps the North and South can re-unite and move forward to a more promising future for both.

Obama’s moment to shine! Off he goes to North Korea!

Perhaps a chance for greatness comes only once in a person’s lifetime, if it ever comes at all. Our glorious leader, President Obama has just been handed one of those opportunities.

North Korea has recently gone from a slow simmer to an active boil after UN sanctions have kicked in over fallout concerning their nuclear ambitions. War could be just around the corner and even a small miscalculation could result in an exchange of nuclear munitions!  Now is the time to send the Great Orator himself, Barrack Obama to Pyongyang to address the grievances of Kim Jong Un mono a mono. Once the President of the Free World crosses that border, I’m positive that all 24 million North Koreans will stand up and take notice. Maybe he could even take Dennis Rodman with him as a kind of ambassador.

Now I know what everyone’s thinking! What with sequestration and all, our man may be caught up a little short. Therefore, I’ve decided to start a nationwide campaign to send OBAMA TO NORTH KOREA. Yes, for just a small donation of $10 or $20, I’m sure enough money could be quickly raised to pay for a one-way round trip to this very mysterious and even dangerous country! I’m putting the campaign together as I write this and am only waiting for confirmation from the President that he will agree to go. Go get em tiger!

Is North Korea merely acting out a ruse? Are there more sinister forces at work?



Is there a bigger and unseen picture with regards to North Korea and her dogged determination to build nuclear weapons; even when doing so would cripple her economy?

North Korea has been, and continues to be to this day, a failed economy in just about every sense of the word. (The average monthly salary per capita is only about $47)!  Her population lives at a subsistence level while the leadership pursues hi-tech weapons of mass destruction! There is absolutely no evidence that any of the research done there was ever aimed at peaceful nuclear power development. But, why continue down this road? Why would a government who oversees a population of over 24 million citizens continue to walk down such a mutually destructive path?

In my mind, there are two possible answers; 1) the leadership is truly insane, in which case nothing can be done; and 2) there are other forces are at play to which the Western World is not privy. I would contend that it is the latter at work here.

Just yesterday, Fox News reported that, ‘North Korea has moved a missile with "considerable range" to its east coast after an unnamed spokesman for the North Korean army warned the U.S. Wednesday that its military has been cleared to wage an attack using "smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear" weapons.’

Is it possible that there is collusion going on to which no one is aware? Could it be possible that North Korea is working closely with certain extremist Islamic elements to bring so-called suitcase nukes across our border from Mexico? Is that what North Korea is referring to when they cite ‘smaller, lighter & diversified nuclear weapons’?

I don’t know. But, more importantly, does anyone in the State Department?

North Korea declares war!

North Korea's young leader Kim Jong Un’s war rhetoric has going ballistic, in recent weeks, with him now declaring that both the North and South are in a ‘state of war’!

While neither the United States nor South Korea are taking Kim very seriously, they are somewhat worried that Kim Jong Un may be painting himself so far into a corner that he might feel compelled to act in order to save face. The problem is, even South Korea acting along could clean the North’s clock were a war to break out.

I have to wonder if there is anyone in leadership ability on that side of this divided country that is not a complete dingbat? And, do any of the citizens of this beleaguered country know that ‘war could break out at any moment’? I suspect not. I also suspect that about the best thing that could happen would be for Kim to actually make a misstep that would result in the complete and utter annihilation of his government. Perhaps then, more responsible (sane) people could step in, make steps toward a more democratic regime and then join with the South in a relationship that would be advantageous to both!

On such a day, the thin, sad and hungry faces of the North could then begin to look a little more like the round, jovial and well fed faces of the South!

Senator Ted Cruz on Healthcare!

Dallas Morning News
March 26, 2013

By Sen. Ted Cruz

Three years after the Affordable Care Act passed, it’s proved to be neither affordable nor caring.
Insurance premiums are skyrocketing. Seniors are losing health care choices. Millions of Americans are being pushed into a struggling and ineffective Medicaid system. Americans are grappling with scores of new taxes. Employers are slashing jobs and hours to avoid complying with Obamacare requirements.

This isn’t what was promised. Americans were told if Obamacare was made law, they would be able to keep their health plans, taxes wouldn’t go up, premiums would go down, and more jobs would be created. But the law isn’t living up to its label. And it’s hurting working families, young people, poor minorities and seniors the most.

Before Obamacare was adopted, President Barack Obama pledged that American families would pay $2,500 less for their insurance premiums by the end of his first term. Today, they are paying $3,000 more — a $5,500 swing between what was promised and reality. Young people will be particularly impacted, with the Energy and Commerce Committee estimating that recent college graduates with entry-level jobs who are struggling to pay off student loan debt could see their premiums increase between 145 and 189 percent on average.

As health costs are going up, jobs are becoming harder to obtain — a double dose of economic pain for those worrying about making ends meet. The Federal Reserve recently reported in its annual “beige book,” which analyzed economic data from across the country, that “employers in several districts cite the unknown effects of the Affordable Care Act as reasons for planned layoffs and reluctance to hire more staff.”

This is terrible news for Americans already suffering from disproportionately high unemployment rates. Currently, the unemployment rate for people who didn’t graduate from high school is more than 12 percent. Hispanics have an unemployment rate of nearly 10 percent, and the African-American unemployment rate is over 14 percent.

Small businesses are discouraged from growing and hiring these folks. Indeed, Obamacare is designed to keep small business small. Once an employer has 50 employees on payroll, expensive compliance requirements are triggered. The approximately $1 trillion in new Obamacare taxes Americans will pay over the next 10 years, as scored by the Joint Committee on Taxation, will go to the government instead of private-sector paychecks.

For those who already can’t find jobs, all this will make it even more difficult — especially for those seeking low-skilled work. The Heritage Foundation found that “workers who cannot produce at least $20,000 a year” for a single plan, or “$27,500 per year” for a family plan “of value to their employers will have serious difficulty finding full-time jobs.”

When I read those statistics, I think of my father, who came to America as a Cuban immigrant in 1957. He was penniless, could not speak English and worked for 50 cents an hour washing dishes. At the time, he couldn’t come close to producing $20,000 worth of economic value, but he needed that job to climb up the economic ladder and help pay his way through college. It’s what enabled him to graduate, get a higher paying job and start a small business.

If Obamacare had been in place when he was looking for work back then, he may have never been hired.

More and more employers are dropping health care coverage because of the burdens associated with Obamacare, too. The Congressional Budget Office estimates up to 7 million people will lose their employer-provided health insurance by 2020.

In Texas, one of the largest insurance markets in the country, every single carrier has dropped its child-only health insurance coverage.

According to the Office of Actuary at the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Obamacare will reduce enrollment in the Medicare Advantage program from 14.8 million to 7.4 million by 2017.
So much for “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it.”

Americans deserve access to affordable health care that suits their needs and an environment where jobs are plentiful. But Obamacare is standing between them and those opportunities.

Congress can help, and the first step is repealing Obamacare. That is why, fulfilling my promise to Texas voters, the first legislation I filed as a senator will do just that. And it is why I have twice pushed for votes to undo Obamacare, which Senate Republicans unanimously supported.

There’s not a moment to waste. Because the longer Obamacare remains the law of the land, the more damage it is certain to do.

Cyprus bailout deal, was not a good ‘deal’ for depositors!

Imagine waking up to find out that as much as 40 percent of the money you thought was safely deposited in the bank was seized, without your permission, to bail out a near-bankrupt government.

My thoughts: Get ready for the true Euro-meltdown that’s coming and which will suck most of the rest of the world down with it!

Iran threatens to level Israel. Really?



Iran's leader said in a speech that the country would annihilate the Israeli cities of Tel Aviv and Haifa if it were attacked by Israel, and criticized the U.S. over nuclear talks.

The Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has final say on all key decisions in Iran, says Israel is too small to be called an enemy, and that the United States is the "center of animosity" toward the Islamic republic.

"Sometimes, leaders of the Zionist regime threaten us. They threaten to take military action. They are not in the size to be put in the list of Iranian nation's enemies," Khamenei said in comments broadcast live on state TV.

In a strong warning to Israel, Khamenei said that if Israel attacked Iran, the "Islamic Republic will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground."

My thoughts: Here’s the deal. Things are now unraveling at so many locations across this world (and seemingly all at the same time), that it concerns me when an extremist and wacked out Islamic infected tic like Iran makes threats against one of our key allies; perhaps it’s time to call them out and to crush them. Just a thought…

Robo-Squirrel and our Government! A true match!

Watching our government operate these days will either make you laugh or cry. Sometimes I do both simultaneously! Whether it’s the squandering of $325,000 to build a robotic squirrel or another one billion to deploy additional missile interceptors in a knee-jerk response to North Korea’s nuclear efforts, you just can’t help but feel sorry for the American taxpayer. After all, they’re the ones footing the bill for such foolishness.

The sad truth is that almost half the population pays no income tax (they’re all on entitlements) and fairly soon the nation’s corporations will be plundered into bankruptcy. That will leave just a small core of the working middle class left to foot the bills for everything! Watch for new and ever more clever ways to tax people without always calling it a tax, i.e. a surcharge on ammunition to the tune of 50% of its cost! WTF?

At some point, this country will grind to a halt when all the money gobbled up by this left leaning monster we call Capitol Hill. Then, in four more years, the Democrats will all scamper back under the carpet (or wherever it is they hide), while the newly elected Republican majority in both the House and Senate attempt to put everything back together. That’s how its gone before and that’s how it will go again.

That damn Keystone pipeline and our Great Obstructionist President!

The Keystone pipeline that has now been reviewed to death by every major department and which has been given the green light by all is still ‘on hold’. Why? President Obama perhaps better known as Mr. Obstructionist wants to ‘think about it’ for another year or so.

This pipeline which now has bipartisan support and which has met all of the Presidents objections languishes and languishes and… Even hard line environmentalists, when inform by the EPA that its construction will actually save green house gases are questioning the President’s actions (or in-actions). On hold, too, are the estimated ten thousand jobs (many of them union jobs) that could help put a dent in the US unemployment figures. So what’s going on here?

Obama is dragging his feet on this project for one simple reason. He feels strongly that fossil fuels are inherently evil and that we should find a way to power our economy with…windmills. What! And, oh yes, we could also use solar power to possibly take up whatever slack is generated.

God, I hope that once this great Republic collapses (and it will), that everyone will remember who was responsible. In the meantime, can we please get that project started?

At some point, it's time!

At some point, whatever is left of the core of this Republic; those men and women who work hard every day and who have a strong family ethic and who understand where we all are in relationship to God, must and will make a stand!

Our government has abandoned us. Our government now serves its own interests more than it serves the peoples who it was sworn to serve. That's a fact.

No American now living; rich or poor, will be better off following the course we now find ourselves on. Only those who are sworn to protect and serve us will benefit greatly, and continue to benefit, under this new and twisted regime of socialist reform.

Stand and be strong my fellow Americans! For we fight for our Republic, our past war dead and for freedom!

An express train to Vegas? Will it be another bridge to nowhere?



All aboard!
Hold onto you’re garter belts, ladies and gents. Mamma Gov is about to plunge into a risky 6.9 billion dollar gamble when and if the Transportation Department ‘wisely’ squanders more taxpayer money on a train that will go from suburban California to Las Vegas! After all, you hard working Americans will be footing 80% of the bill!

In spite of well considered objections from House Republicans on Capitol Hill, it’s looking likely that this deal will go through. Interestingly, some insiders feel it may act as an escape route for millions of over-taxed Californians as they endeavor to make a mass exodus from the West Coast! (Sort of the opposite of what happened during the California Gold Rush of 1849)!

The first hint that all may not be well, will come after this train begins running and the ticket agents, over on the Coast, realize that the tickets are all one way!

Magpul - Get the F out of Colorado! Come to Missouri!

Unnoticed amid dozens of tract homes in the Denver suburbs, a nondescript industrial building is suddenly in the middle of the gun control debate in Colorado.

The company, started in an ex-Marine's basement in 1999, is in a standoff with Colorado Democrats who want to restrict the size of ammunition magazines after mass shootings in a suburban Denver movie theater and a Connecticut elementary school. Magpul has issued lawmakers an ultimatum potentially worth millions: Pass the bill, and the business will move.

Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/03/02/company-will-move-if-colorado-approves-gun-control/#ixzz2MQhm7AcK

My thoughts: We are witnessing the emergence of perhaps the most retarded liberal group of people in Colorado ever to grace a planet. That they even go to bed at night and sleep soundly is beyond my keen...

Magpul! - Please come to Missouri. We still have a modicum of sense left. God bless this country and those of us who still believe in You!

Those damn Republicans did it again!

With as many as three quarters of million workers due to be laid off in March as a result of the sequestration act (this according to our President), the unemployment rate figures due to be released in mid March will almost certainly look dismal. And you can blame the Republicans and Bush for all of it!

Picture this unpleasant and unfolding scenario; millions of undocumented workers streaming north across our fractured southern border (a fact), as HSF is forced to cut back, while almost a million (750K) are summarily laid off due to the cuts that will take effect in just a day or so. And that’s just the beginning of bad things to come according to President Obama. Also in the mix is the release of hundreds of hardened foreign criminals (this has happened already) along with the absolute and complete gutting of our armed services! (Factors that could easily play into an invasion scenario should China or Islam so elect). And, standing all around will be hard working citizens all asking, ‘What’s happening’?

Here’s what’s happening. The United States is being systematically altered, dismantled and forever changed into a country that few will want to remain in by the time newly crowned King Obama assumes full dictatorial control in about four years. I predict this country will look very similar to Greece by that time, with unemployment above 25%, lines forming at grocery stores while people wait for a chance to buy food they cannot afford, energy shortages at all levels with gas leading the way at $12 a gallon and a universal sense of doom suffered by all.

Thank you President Obama, thank you for nothing…

The Democrats as a whole!

Actually I should have left off the ‘w’ in whole. When they can’t achieve their liberal agenda’s on fair and legal grounds, they seem to have no problems with resorting to cheating. And, while I am not a Republican by any stretch, I’d have to give them the moral high ground in the area of gun debate.

‘President Obama supporters appear to be using fake Twitter accounts to send pro gun-control messages to members of Congress, Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman and conservative bloggers who also reviewed the messages said Monday.’
