Arlen Specter: Goodbye & Good Riddance!

December 22, 2010

Arlen Specter gave his final speech on the Senate floor today.  He used the occasion not thank Americans for the privilege of serving them as a US Senator.  Instead, Specter used the occasion to attack the Tea Party, those Americans who worked hard to make needed change in the direction of our government.  How sad to end his political career in such a manner.  I have a few words in response to his remarks.

What a hypocrite you are Senator Specter, you are the “poster politician” for career politicians.  I see how you regret the fact many smart Americans have woken up and are now fighting back to regain control over our government.  That is what the Tea Party is about, sorry if that did not fit into your view of how things should be in DC!   Tea Party members are determined to stop the madness that has gone on unchecked for decades due to the likes of you Arlen Specter.   We are doing it for our Grand Children’s future.  You refer to yourself as a political centralist?  Are you kidding me?  You are a Rhino a term for a liberal in disguise and your record in Congress has exposed you as the  progressive/socialist you truly are politically.  That is why you were voted out of office Senator.

Is anyone surprised that Specter is going out kicking and screaming?  His arrogance during the Healthcare issue was not forgotten.  Specter was so out of touch with his own constituents it cost him his Senate seat.  Good riddance and it better be a wake up call for others trying to push forward this progressive insanity that is destroying America!  God Bless America and Merry Christmas to those who still love this country.

St Pete Beach Oil Spill?

December 21, 2010

I must have been out-of-town when the oil washed up on the beaches of Pinellas ruining the beautiful beaches of St Pete Beach and ruining the tourist industry for the beach resorts.  The TradeWinds Island Resorts cashed in on the oil spill (1.3 million) through their corporate legal staff. It illustrates how big business works the system to collect your tax dollars (and in this case) dollars out of your pocket. Any payouts coming from the BP fund will be made up from higher energy costs and passed onto the consumer. That is how business works and BP will recover their loss. 

The fishing industry, namely the fisherman and small businesses supporting it were impacted by the oil spill and most deserving of compensation for their loss.  Why?  Because their fishing grounds were quarantined during the worst days of the oil spill.   They are now being turned away by the BP Administrator for insufficient paperwork required to obtain reimbursement. 

The resorts along Pinellas County used the oil spill to recover profit loss due to a recession and a record unemployment rate in Florida and the nation, coupled with a similar situation in Europe. That is why their net profit has fallen, Overton, the Vice President of the TradeWinds Resort is laughing to the bank cashing  his check at your expense!

A friend sent this to me and I thought it was too good, not to share.  I will never hear the Star Spangled Banner the same way again!! This should be required viewing in every public school.
 
 

Military Recruiters Are Child Predators?

December 9, 2010

A University of Washington Professor, who fought allowing military recruiters in local high schools, is the lead author of a report that compares the behaviors of recruiters with the behaviors of sexual predators.  Don’t be surprised if you have not heard about this outrageous story because the main stream media is ignoring it.

Amy Hagopian, assistant professor with the University of Washington’s Department of Global Health concludes military recruiters are a “threat to the health of adolescents.”  In follow-up interviews she stated military recruiters are child predators!

Everyone is entitled to an opinion and the right to say them publicly, that is what makes America a great country.  But, there is an important distinction between expressing your beliefs and teaching them to young minds in a public university.  That is cause for alarm if you care about our country’s future.

This far left liberal should not be teaching young impressionable students this garbage!  It is not very difficult to understand why so many young people hold America in contempt today given this garbage they are taught in the classroom.  It is wrong and something must be done to prevent it from continuing.  Public funding should be withheld until Professor Hagopian recants her statements and makes a public apology to our military.  If she refuses, (she is not a tenured professor) so remove her from the Assistant Professor position she holds at the university so she does not infect others with her hatred.   

I hope others share my view and  support this position.  The lady has gone too far in her hatred for our military heroes.  The very same ones who have paid the ultimate sacrifice or are in harm’s way right now defending her right to be a public fool.  God Bless our Troops!

TEA PARTY I AGREE, Here’s WHY

December 6, 2010

For those of you who are still trying to understand the thinking process of our friends on the far left (Liberals) maybe this can help.  I answered the questions and accusations this Liberal made via an email.  I seriously doubt my answers got through to this person.  Perhaps it may help others who are not afraid to take on and debate the far left’s agenda to transform Americainto socialism via political correctness and a revision of history.  This blog is long but worth the read. 

Key: Black Bold is my leftist friend’s questions – normal black my responses. 

heydo4u@  If you agree with the Tea Party, here’s a few things to think about:  I agree with the Tea Party.  Here are my reasons.
After 8 years of the Bush/Cheney administration, NOW YOU GET MAD?!  George Bush was President for 8 years.  Was he perfect? Of course not, no President is perfect. But, he did not take an oath in front of a Grand Jury, swear to tell the truth and then tell a despicable lie about his involvement in a sleazy sex act with a teenage intern?    Why did you not get mad when your President Clinton committed perjury?  PS – contrary to liberal talking points, President Bush did not lie about WMD in Iraq.  All intelligence information said they were there in Iraq.  He did his duty as President to protect America that is his job.  His decision was backed by evidence of it being used on Iraq’s own people and Iran during the Iran/Iraq war.  Liberals of course have a habit of either ignoring facts or revising history to suit their political agenda.  Bush acted to protect America which had already been attacked by Islamic extremist who were thought to be in alliance with Hussein.  Common sense would dictate any President act to protect Americans. 

The economy did begin to fail under Bush and he took responsibility.  But, something liberals ignore or tend to revise in their recollection. The House of Representatives and the Senate were controlled by Democrats and it was their domestic agenda!  Liberals tend to forget it is the Congress that enacts legislation not the President!

You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a president with fewer votes than his opponent. Why would we get mad when the better candidate prevailed?  Why would we get mad at the Supreme Court?  Go back to school and educate yourself on American government and political science.  The Supreme Court is our 3rd branch of government and has equal powers shared with the President and Congress.  It is called checks and balances.  The liberals believe it was a legal recount.  That is evidence they are ignorant.  It was not legal and that is exactly why the Supreme Court, (highest court of the land) rejected the liberal argument that is was legal.  Why was it illegal?  Because the Florida election laws which govern their elections stated clearly you could not extend a recount past the date of when the election had to be re-certified. Why? Because you cannot transition something as powerful and important as the Federal government in three days!  Laws are enacted for a reason.

You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed anonymous energy executives to dictate energy policy and pressure us to invade Iraq.  We already discussed Iraq   Just FYI.  When our nation is currently dependent upon fossil fuel energy to maintain our economic engine why would we not worry about energy policy?  You liberals are the first ones to scream when the fuel prices skyrocket due to oil reduction from the Middle East who we depend upon for oil due to Democrats handcuffing our own energy exploration.
You didn’t get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us. The invasion was approved by an over-riding majority of both Democrats and Republicans. (Check it out in the Congressional Record)  The UN passed resolutions authorizing force if Hussein did not cooperate with UN inspectors looking for weapons of mass destruction and evidence of a nuclear proliferation industry.  Liberals changed history in their minds (they are good at that) during the Gore presidential campaign.  Gore is a great liar, why don’t you mention him when you viciously attack Bush/Cheney as liars?  The “GLOBAL WARMING” disaster (conveniently happened when his book and movie came out and made him rich) is now exposed as a huge hoax perpetrated by the scientific community that is largely composed of liberal Academians, who have also gotten rich from the Green machine.
You didn’t get mad when we spent $800 billion (and counting) on that war. The war was over 8 years and it liberated a country giving it democracy, free elections, and freedom for women who lived in oppression. I am throwing Afghanistan in the mix since you are ignoring it because that is now the liberal Messiah’s war.  Your Messiah and Pelosi and Reid, the Liberal morons spent 8-Trillion dollars and growing (Bailout and Buyouts) in less than 2 years.  Did I say spent, my bad, I meant wasted!  So the question, what is better? Spending 800 billion to liberate two countries from evil dictatorships that threatened and in Afghanistan’s case, hosted the enemy that attacked America, or wasting trillions of dollars to transform the greatest country in the history of the world into a socialist country?  Just look at Europe to help with your answer. 

You didn’t get mad when over $10 billion in cash just disappeared in Iraq.  Why are you not mad about the Trillions that have disappeared in two years under liberal rule?  Why are you not mad about having to get taxed to death due to Obama-care?  Probably because you’re ignorant of the facts because you read too many liberal talking points!  Try reading some different literature and viewing some different news for a more balanced perspective.

You didn’t get mad when you found out we were torturing people. Another lie told by liberals for the purpose of having political leverage for the election.  We poured water over known terrorists to get them to tell us where they were planning to attack next because we knew there were more attacks coming.  Where was the liberal outrage when Islamic terrorists chopped the heads off of captured Americans to prove a point?  That is not torture.  You are misguided for even trying to make a comparison to water boarding!

You didn’t get mad when a covert CIA operative was outed by the White House for political revenge on her husband for doubting nuclear weapons in Iraq. Why would I want someone who hates America and is willing to embarrass our President all due to political motivation? Valerie Plane was a paper pushing, coffee drinking over paid bureaucrat with a CIA title in name only.  She was not in the field over in Afghanistan risking her life for her country as a field operative.  I am sure there wasn’t an embassy party those two missed within the beltway.  CIA operative please…

You didn’t get mad when the Patriot Act suspended habeas corpus and other fundamental human rights. Show me proof that the Patriot Act suspended habeas corpus.  If that was true, how did those suspected as terrorists being detained in Gitmo eventually get freed during Bush’s administration?  Another liberal delusion!  I got news for you, your Messiah has limited more American freedom than the Patriot Act!  You just don’t have the accurate information to see it!  Obamacare represents the greatest loss of freedom in my life time.
You didn’t get mad when GW Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined. You can’t be serious, I know you’re joking, China has become a super power in two years thanks to your liberal aged hippies who are running congress, and the assistance Clinton provided China during his Presidency in the form of Super computers.

You didn’t get mad when GW Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country. We did get mad and our anger started when your liberal (Clinton) began the process with NAFTA.  Once again an example of you not understanding history.

You didn’t get mad when the government illegally eavesdropped on millions of Americans. Because I was not doing anything illegal and my government was searching for terrorists hidden in America who were trying to kill me and other innocent Americans!

You didn’t get mad when Osama Bin Laden was allowed to slip away. Read Decision Points and see for yourself how badly Bush wanted Bin Laden dead or alive.  Any American with common sense was disappointed over him alluding capture.  Take a look at a topographic map and look at the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan.  Then tell me why we let him slip away.  Why hasn’t the Messiah captured or killed him in two years?  Hussein did not get away so one out of two is not bad.

You didn’t get mad when Bush rang up $10 trillion in combined budget deficits. Now you’re being stupid if you really believe this was done by Bush.  News Flash, this was all done in the past two years thanks to the Messiah, Nancy and Harry.

You didn’t get mad when you saw the conditions at Walter Reed Army Hospital. Unlike you, I am a proud veteran, and a volunteer for a non-profit that provides assistance to our wounded war heroes.  Your comment about Walter Reed Hospital is disgusting and pathetic and not worthy of comment.  Grow up!

You didn’t get mad when the federal government let a major US city, New Orleans, drown. Mistakes were made in handling the Katrina disaster but the blame was more on the State and local governments for not being prepared and acting in a timely manner.  Guess what?  They were Democrats!  Bush in his autobiography admits to having made mistakes with Katrina.  I am still waiting for your Messiah to admit to mistakes in response to the BP disaster.

You didn’t get mad when the government gave people who had more money than they could spend over a trillion dollars in tax breaks. Liberals do not understand the economy, they only understand the government is supposed to give them things and take care of them.  So, how would I explain tax breaks?  I am sure you don’t believe that the top 5% of income earners pay 75% of all taxes which gives you liberals your things!  Nor would you believe those same top earners are the small business engine that runs America.

You didn’t get mad with the worst 8 years of job creation in most of a century. I am sure you’re ignoring the fact that “the worst” of the lack of job creation has occurred over the past 2 years under the Messiah.  Unemployment has risen to 9.8 percent nationally and that is only those still collecting unemployment that are counted.   Why is there no job creation?  Because why would we small business owners invest money into our business, borrow money, etc when we have the pending reality of higher taxes, higher unemployment taxes, higher healthcare costs, and higher product costs in our immediate futures?  Liberals have no clue about business, which is another word for the economy.  Unlike government, we just can’t go out and print money, we have to raise prices.  Well guess what? In a global economy, raising prices does not always work out!  That is why you are not seeing jobs being created. Of course were mad about it because it is exactly what you socialists want to happen as part of your plan to transform America. We are mad as hell about it!  Your Queen (Nancy Pelosi) made one of the stupidest remarks ever made by a House Speaker when she said unemployment benefits charge the economy and are necessary!  Are you kidding me?

You didn’t get mad when over 200,000 US citizens lost their lives because they had no health insurance. 
Here is a news flash for you.  People die, it is part of the natural life process and it has absolutely nothing to do with health insurance!  If you are hurt or seriously ill you go to an ER and you receive treatment regardless of ability to pay! And you know it.  Here is a question for you back.  Why are you liberals not concerned about the estimated 1.7 million innocent babies murdered in the USA annually due to Democrats and their abortion policies?  Explain the difference.
You didn’t get mad when lack of oversight and relaxed regulation from the Bush Administration caused US citizens to lose $12 trillion in investments, retirement, and home values.  Says who?? I was mad as hell when my retirement portfolio went into the toilet due to bad behavior on Wall Street. I still maintain all of those responsible should be in Federal prison.  Am I sitting around crying about it today?  No, I am working hard like other smart Americans to rebuild my savings for retirement.  What a concept, try sharing it with your fellow liberals and we just might get our economy “working” again!

But you did get mad when a black man was elected president and decided that people in America deserved the right to get medical attention if they were sick.  There it is….  I knew a liberal could not have a debate without trying to inject the race card!  You liberals are the racists and you just proved it.  We conservatives could care less about the color of the Messiah’s skin.  We get mad at his disdain for America and his efforts to change the greatest country in the world thanks to (freedom and capitalism) into a failed socialist country, controlled by a powerful central government.  That my misguided friend is why we have a Tea Party! We do not want Government reaching into our homes and personal lives because they feel they are smarter and know better!  Wake up; you should want the same thing!  Anyone can receive medical attention in America if they want help.  We are not going out on the streets looking for you to provide it.  The ERs are well-marked and there are even signs on the highway telling you where to go!

Illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, job losses by the millions, stealing elections, stealing your tax dollars to make the extremely rich richer, and the worst economic disaster since 1929, are all okay with you …  but helping fellow Americans who are sick is not?  What’s wrong with you, anyway? LOL what is wrong with us?  I guess it is the fact we enjoy freedom, Love God and family, and respect the sanctity of life.  We do not want to legalize drugs, invent new terms like “baby mommy” “baby daddy” or “sperm donor” to identify a child’s parent.  We value life and we also value freedom and are willing to fight for it.  We want secure borders but welcome new citizens provided they come to America and become law-abiding productive Americans like our ancestors.   We live by the 12 commandments** and we respect the rule of law.  We do not trust government, but we recognize government is necessary for a lawful society.  We place our trust into the Constitution, not the men/women running government (Bureaucrats) who view the constitution as a hindrance to their plans for America. 

 One final thought on the Messiah.  What has he taught Americans?  He certainly has taught  conservatives that electing a man with no leadership experience, no business acumen, and no military leadership is not the kind of leader you want elected to the most powerful position in the world.  History has shown men lacking those skills make terrible Presidents (with the exception of Jimmy Carter)  I don’t know what his problem was, but he must be happy knowing your Messiah is going to bump him out of the title as worst American President in history.

So the real question is – What is wrong with you liberals?

** Twelve commandments may have some conservatives confused.

1.  Thou shall not speak badly of a fellow Republican.

2.  Thou shall not vote for any Democrat.

Merry Christmas to my fellow conservative Americans and Liberals and God bless each one of you and your families during this most joyous time of year.  Our savior was born and he loves each of us even the misguided liberals, who are really not bad people, just poorly informed. Pray for them.

 

DOUBLE STANDARD?

December 3, 2010

Charlie Rangle faced Congress yesterday and was admonished by Nancy Pelosi (House Speaker) in the form of a censure. That had to be difficult for both of them given their close political alliance.  

What is making thinking Americans angry is the double standard that was proven during this sorry example of justice.  Any average American would be facing federal charges for income tax evasion.  Charlie evaded income taxes over a time period that spanned 17 years yet was not criminally charged by federal prosecutors.  “Joe the Plumber” or you and me would most certainly be facing criminal charges if we had done the exact same thing! Lesley Snipes, recently convicted on 3 misdemeanor charges of tax evasion was just sent off to serve 3 years in federal prison!  Obviously he has fallen out of grace with the elitist running the country.  

The explanation from those who continue to support Rangle’s punishment is also rather disturbing to thinking Americans.  Charlie, when exposed by the media for his tax evasion, immediately contacted the IRS and agreed to pay all back taxes owed.  By doing this he avoided federal criminal charges.  Based on that rationalization can we assume a bank robber, who realizes he has been identified publicly, returns the money to the bank and avoids being charged with bank robbery?   Thinking Americans recognize hypocrisy.  The federal government’s decision to not prosecute Charlie Rangle (who was the most powerful figure on the Ways & Means committee) is a perfect example of it!  The swamp still needs to be drained and it will take the thinking American’s vote to drain it in 2012!
