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
              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%
            Wilson ........................... 52%
            Harding.......................... 49%
            Coolidge........................  48%
            Hoover ..........................42%
            F. Roosevelt................... 50%
            Eisenhower....................  57%
            Kennedy......................... 30%
            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.


"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.


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:
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!


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!
