55 + WAKE UP!

August 15, 2012

 

The Obama campaign is on the attack so watch out!  Liberals in their condescending way are saying senior citizens are stupid!  Why else would they air campaign ads claiming that Romney/Ryan will cut out Medicare leaving seniors with no medical coverage?  Throwing Granny off the cliff!

This is so untruthful it is ridiculous; it implies liberals think senior citizens are stupid.  Senior citizens are not stupid.  Many are being misled by the constant barrage of lies and misinformation coming daily from the Obama campaign and liberal media.

How ironic, Obama’s campaign has chosen Dan Rather as their principal attack person to go after Paul Ryan’ tax plan,  Dan Rather, publicly disgraced and fired as a news correspondent for blatantly false reporting on President Bush’s National Guard service.  (Remember that?)  Dan is back, lying to convince senior citizens that Paul Ryan will cut Medicare for seniors!  The truth, Paul Ryan is on record with his budget plan (the only budget plan out there) and it does not change Medicare for anyone over the age of 55.  It does offer younger Americans an opportunity to have choices and encourages them with tax incentives to save money for their own health care options for retirement.

What Obama and Dan Rather don’t want you to know is important.  Social Security and the Medicare system will be bankrupt by 2033.  Democrats when they were in full control of the Senate, Congress and the White House did absolutely nothing to fix it!  Instead, they squandered their political capital on Obama-care. After the selection of Paul Ryan as the VP candidate, Obama’s campaign is attempting to spin the Medicare issue in their favor by claiming reforms on fraud have accounted for significant improvements to Medicare. Dan Rather will not report that Obama’s new law will take funding away from Medicare!

If you are 55 and older please wake up and pay attention.  The liberals are in full attack mode in Florida and they are once again using the same old tactic of scaring seniors into voting for Obama.  Don’t believe it!  If you reject their lie and vote for Romney/Ryan, you will send a message to liberals.  Senior citizens are not stupid!  If you agree, forward this email to your fellow senior friends and set the record straight.

Best Quote 2012

July 15, 2012

Best Line so far of 2012:

I don’t know whose quote this is, but it is definitely packed with truth”  and, as we all know, sometimes the truth hurts!

This will be a classic!!!  It should be engraved in stone at the front of the Capitol.

Witnessing the Republicans and the Democrats bicker over the U.S. debt is like watching two drunks argue over a bar bill on the Titanic.

Obamacare TAX

June 29, 2012

Yesterday’s decision from the Supreme Court came as a big surprise to many of us Conservatives who oppose Obamacare.  What made the decision so difficult is just how wrong the experts got it.  The focus was on Kennedy as the swing vote and it turns out the swing vote comes from a conservative, Justice Roberts, appointed by GW Bush.  It is fair to say nobody saw that coming.

As disappointing as the vote by the Supreme Court, opponents of large government and Obamacare in particular can make a difference with their vote.  Obamacare can be defeated by We the People, but only if we remove Obama from the White House and regain a majority in the US Senate.  That is the only way we can repeal this law now that it has been ruled constitutional.

Chief Justice Roberts is not very popular with conservatives today and for good reason.  His reasoning this is a taxing power that falls within Congress is misguided.  Obama told the American people this is not a tax.  Well guess what, the Supreme Court has ruled it is in fact a tax and it will represent one of the largest taxes in US history.  For the very first time Americans are taxed for not buying something which is unprecedented!  That should be an important message in the fall during the election campaign.

Is The Media Hiding The Truth?

February 23, 2012

Last nights GOP debate was hosted by CNN in Arizona.  During the questioning of the candidates, the issue of birth control was raised to the candidates by the CNN reporter.  In a time of spiraling gasoline prices that threaten to reach $5.00 a gallon,  not one question was asked by the media members on the spike in gasoline.  The candidates had to bring it up themselves.  The media panel also ignored the present administration’s involvement with “Fast and Furious”, a program approved by Obama’s Attorney General, (Eric Holder) allowing federal authorities with ATF to sell automatic firearms to Mexican drug cartels in Mexico.  It has now turned into a government coverup, with Holder refusing to turn over memos generated by his office pertaining to “Fast and Furious”.  The program resulted in the killing of a Federal agent with one of the automatic firearms sold to the cartel by ATF!

Back in 2007 when candidate Barrack Obama was running for President.  Not once was he ever asked by the mainstream media this question:  Why as an Illinois  State Senator, did you not support  The Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (BAIPA)?  It was never raised as an issue by the media, anyone hearing about it heard of it from bloggers on the right.  So why today does the mainstream media think it so important to report on a candidates view on  birth control?  Is that more important then America’s economy  reeling from over regulation by government,  out of control deficit spending, and high energy prices, all because of Obama’s failed policies?  Or is it because the mainstream media chooses to keep these issues hidden from the average American voter?

Fairness Test

February 8, 2012

Please take a few minutes to answer the following (9) questions asked by Stephen Moore in an article he writes about the fairness issue, that is the current mantra of the Obama administration.  The questions are short and to the point.  The answers you provide may surprise you if you share the same opinion of the far left.

1.   Is it fair that those who took out responsible mortgages and pay them each month have to see their tax dollars used to subsidize those who acted recklessly, greedily and sometimes deceitfully in taking out mortgages they now can’t afford to repay?

2.  Is it fair that thousands of workers won’t have jobs because the president sided with environmentalists and blocked the shovel-ready Keystone XL oil pipeline?

3.  Is it fair that some of Mr. Obama’s largest campaign contributors received federal loan guarantees on their investments in renewable energy projects that went bust?

4.  Is it fair that federal employees receive benefits that are nearly 50% higher than those of private-sector workers whose taxes pay their salaries, according to the Congressional Budget Office?

5.  Is it fair that soon almost half the federal budget will take income from young working people and redistribute it to old non-working people, even though those over age 65 are already among the wealthiest Americans?

6.  Is it fair that in 27 states workers can be compelled to join a union in order to keep their jobs?

7.  Is it fair that nearly four out of 10 American households now pay no federal income tax at all—a number that has risen every year under Mr. Obama?

8.  Is it fair that Boeing, a private company, was threatened by a federal agency when it sought to add jobs in a right-to-work state rather than in a forced-union state?

9.  Is it fair that our kids and grandkids and great-grandkids—who never voted for Mr. Obama—will have to pay off the $5 trillion of debt accumulated over the past four years, without any benefits to them?

A Disservice to Veterans

January 26, 2012

The Florida Senate passed a bill sponsored by State Senator, Mike Bennett, R designed to improve benefits for returning war veterans.  But Mr. Bennett is very angry over hearing the news of the bill’s passage.  Why?  Because, the Senate committee gutted the most important benefit from the bill before approval!  The Senator’s bill had called for an automatic admission to any state university for any veteran with an honorable discharge.

Why was this part removed?  Because University officials objected to it! They believe some of the veterans might not be qualified!  The truth behind their decision is they do not want an influx of men and women who have real world experience and common sense challenging the liberal philosophy taught in most State Universities.  That could possibly influence the young easily influenced minds of those without the benefit of any real life experience and common sense.

If the leaders of our state universities are honest about their reason, how can they justify years of affirmative action, a brain child of the liberals?  There is no difference, unless you count the bias harbored towards veterans by the elitist running and teaching at our state universities.  The blame for failing our veterans falls directly on the Florida State Senate for being gutless in not looking out for the men and women, who gave everything to defend America.  This was not a good moment for the Florida Senate, which should be looking out for its most treasured constituents, not over paid employees of the state.

Most Divisive President Ever!

January 25, 2012

Last night in front of the nation, Obama proved he is intellectually dishonest or clueless about the American way of life! He wants to tax the rich at 30%. (code for taxing capital gains income). What does it mean to America’s economy? No investment capital to create new business and jobs! 7 Trillion dollars has been printed and spent in the 3 years Obama’s administration and we continue to have no real job growth, yet Obama wants more money! The speech last night was the most divisive speech ever given by a sitting president. Unbelievable!

The Real Reason For Gas Price Spike

December 31, 2011

The Obama administration is blaming Iran for the steep spike in gasoline prices. Wrong! Obama is to blame for refusing to approve domestic drilling and building the oil pipeline from Canada to our refineries in Texas, keeping America dependent on those nut case Mullahs in Iran! Don’t believe Obama! His far left base is making you pay more and jeopardizing our national security.

Remember the idiom, “don’t shoot yourself in the foot”? That is exactly what Iran will do if they attempt a military blockade. It gives Europe and the US the justification to take out their military, leadership and nuclear plants.  A blockade would hurt their economy even more then the embargo placed upon them that caused the threat. The focus must stay on Obama and the liberals in congress for refusing to allow American  energy independence. PERIOD!

Obama Needs A Game Changer!

September 7, 2011

The President will announce to Congress his job plan tomorrow and is expected to extend payroll tax cuts for workers and prolong expiring jobless benefits.  This will require an additional spending of 300 billion dollars, sources say.  The lunatic, Maxine Waters, (D) CA. said the other day, the nation needs an additional Trillion dollars in government spending for job creation. Only those on the far Left (which is our President) could conceive a plan that requires even more government spending. That represents the principal difference between the Democratic Party and the GOP.  It will define the 2012 election!  Note to Congress – It is not smart to boycott the President’s address tomorrow night it is disrespectful, so don’t do it!   

The fight is on for which party has a real plan for job creation. Romney has announced a plan for government getting out-of-the-way and allowing the private sector to engage in business and to bring back the billions of dollars going off shore to China and other countries in Asia.  Key proposals of the plan in brief:

1. Reduce corporate taxes and capital gains taxes, continue payroll tax cuts.

2. Relax oppressive government regulations impacting on business growth, chief among them repeal Obama-care, and EPA mandates.  

3. Open domestic energy resources in America reducing dependence for expensive energy from unfriendly nations.  

4.  Re-negotiate unfair trade agreements with trading partners in Asia, namely China. 

What have you got Obama? It better be a real game changer.  If it is more of the same, government spending – government job creation – tighter government control (Regulation) over business –  more “Stimulus spending” on Green Energy – tax increases (Obama-care) well Mr. President, than welcome to the One Term Presidency Club!

 

Energy Independence or Politics as Usual

August 24, 2011

There is a critical debate going on between Obama’s far left supporters and reducing our nation’s oil dependence from hostile nations. There has never been a question in my mind that the fixed price of oil created by the Oil Cartel played a large role in damaging America’s economy.  What follows is a brief description of Canada’s vast oil sand reserve that is not only economically feasible to recover but can be shipped along pipe lines from Canada to Texas for gasoline production.  I don’t have to mention that Canada has historically been our longest friendliest and most reliable partner.

Facts on oil sands:

The Athabasca oil sands are large deposits of extremely heavy crude oil, located in northeastern Alberta, Canada These oil sands, consist of a mixture of crude (a semi-solid form of crude oil), silica sand, clay minerals, and water. The Athabasca deposit is the largest reservoir of crude bitumen in the world and the largest of three major oil sands deposits in Alberta.) The land contains about 1.7 trillion barrels^ of bitumen in-place, comparable in magnitude to the world’s total proven reserves of conventional petroleum.  With modern unconventional oil production technology, at least 10% of these deposits, or about 170 billion barrels^ were considered to be economically recoverable at 2006 prices, making Canada’s total oil reserves the second largest in the world, after Venezuela‘s.

President Obama must make a decision to approve the permitting that will allow a pipeline to be built from Alberta, Canada south to Galveston, Tx. where it will be refined into lower priced gasoline, thus reducing our reliance upon unfriendly nations for oil.  What makes this a critical issue is not just so much the oil dependency issue.  It also plays a critical role in defining our next Presidential election. Here is why:

President Obama is on the campaign trail talking up job creation and stimulating the economy and reducing US dependence on cartel oil.  Yet, he has NOT given approval for the permitting of this oil pipeline.  Why?  Because he knows it will cost him his voting base, the far left who vehemently oppose this pipeline project. If Obama approves building the pipeline, it means he will lose the far left voter base and his job.  Here is a sample of one of the several environmental groups (who helped elect Obama) and is now lobbying Obama to kill the pipeline.  

Natural Resources Defense Council“In Canada, the oil industry is transforming one of the worlds last remaining intact ecosystems into America’s gas tank.”

This is the same ideological garbage they used to prevent drilling and a pipeline in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR).  They are already in DC protesting and being arrested over the issue.  Their attorneys are preparing law suits that will most likely tie the issue up in federal courts for years. This has been there strategy for decades and one of the reasons why America is in today’s bleak economic situation.  Science concludes that any elevation in carbon output would be no more than 1/10 of 1 percent using sand oil! 

So it comes down to these questions, Mr. President are you supporting? 

1.  Americans who are desperate for job creation, an improved economy, and for the sake of national security, a substantial reduction in energy dependence from hostile nations?

2. The left supporters, whose strategy has been to destroy America’s capitalist economy? 

 Friends, keep this on your radar as it should be a huge factor for making Obama a one term president if he sides with his Wacko friends on the far left.

UPDATE

We learned yesterday (no surprise here) Obama has announced he will postpone a decision on the pipeline until after 2012.  He claims more time is needed to study the issue before making a decision.  The fact is this proposal has been studied and every agency who is involved has approved it.  Why is Obama delaying a project that will create jobs for our unemployed, reduce our energy dependency on the middle east, and improve our national security?  Because he is making this political, choosing not to anger his far left base of wackos who oppose building the pipeline.

This is a very clear message from Obama.  He is willing to put politics ahead of creating jobs and improving our national security.  Do you really think he deserves a second term?

 

**** UPDATE ****

The Canadian Prime Minister has announced his decision to divert the oil pipeline to the west coast due to Obama’s decision to delay making a decision on allowing it to run south to Texas and our refinement plants until 2013.  The decision, clearly political, was to appease his far left political base who oppose the pipeline.  What does this political decision mean to America?  The potential for solid blue-collar jobs is gone, cheaper gasoline prices and less dependency on OPEC and improved national security gone.   Perhaps the worst consequence is China will now purchase this oil from the West coast which helps increase their industrial machine and allow China to remain ahead of America in the manufacturing industry and the world economy.

This issue along with Obama-care should be on the minds of every American concerned about their future.  These political decisions are why we are stuck in a slow economy and unemployment is at an all time record high!  Obama knows exactly what he is doing.  The bigger question we should be asking ourselves.  Do you?
