Wedgie

Let’s see BO is unable to run on his record, so what is he doing? He is trying to drive a wedge in the public, here is the list from just since the primary season began.

1. He comes out in support of the Occupy Wall Street gang. Why? Because it plays right into his fiddle of hating the rich and successful. Right into his view that taxpayers should be footing the bill for the poor, or unwilling to work.

2. He says “if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon”. Why? Because he can try to drive a wedge between the races.

3. He makes a phone call to Sandra Fluke to praise her on taking a stand for what she believes in. Why? Because he wants to drive a wedge between the genders, and gain votes for November.

4. He comes out in support of gay marriage. Why? A further wedge, because many conservatives believe in marriage being between a man and a woman. Again to shore up votes.

5. He now has the TSA performing random checks on the highway at truck way stations and bus stations. Why? Because they think trucks are the biggest security threat, not airplanes. Remember when he said we need a civilian security force that’s just as big, just as well-funded as the military? I would say the TSA is in training as that force.

I’m probably missing some example, but those come to mind. I don’t think BO has any intention of trying to fix things, I think he hates this country and is doing everything he can to cause social strife. I mean it was his own words when he said he wanted to “fundamentally change America”. And his hag wife says that BO getting the nomination was the first time in her adult life she was proud of her country. How about his friendship with Bill Ayers? How about his admittedly be drawn to communists in college. This man hates the country, pure and simple, and he will do whatever he can to help with its demise.

Yeah, call me extreme, but I’m a micro-spec compared to the president. He must be defeated in November, because if he wins reelection, you can bet some bad stuff is going to go down when another term isn’t holding him back.

Declaration of War

Contraception, equal pay, stay at home moms…each instance is purely the democrats attempt at regaining/retaining the vote of women.

Contraception has been covered in the Sandra Fluke scenario, so I won’t hash out the details, other than it was trying to make it look like NO republican men wanted women taking any form of birth control.  No, it was all about convincing women we hate them, and about who should or shouldn’t have to pay for extra curricular, personal physical activities.

Attack stay at home moms.  Brilliant, attack the group of people who are the most keenly aware of how much it costs to raise a family, and the hard work that goes into that task.  I’m a dad with two kids, I work full-time in the evenings, and let me tell you just having two kids running around for half the day is a serious workout.  I can’t imagine Ann Romney and five boys.  Liberals simply hate the idea that a woman would voluntarily stay home with kids and not pursue a workplace career…unless you are Sarah Palin and then they hate you because you were a vice presidential candidate who wouldn’t be at home.

Equal pay taken care of in the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.  I work for a company that employs over 1,000 people, and every hourly employee starts at the same pay, and EARNS incremental increases based on the time they have been employed with the company and their job performance.  All pay raises on my shift of 80 to 120 people are put in for by their immediate supervisor, it then goes across my desk, and finally the desk of the vice president of distribution.  Oh, have I mentioned the raises are figured out by computer programming based on the supervisor entries.  If I had the hankering to adjust down ANY employees pay increase, I am required in writing to justify the decrease to the vice president.  I work for a mid-sized company in the midwest and we have a rather detailed system for reviews and pay increases.  Sure there are exceptions to everything, but there is no doubt in my mind that most companies are diligent in the pay process.

So, in summary us conservative/republican men just hate women so much we have to have a war against them.  This notion is completely insane.  I for one love women, probably too much for my own good sometimes.  If anything you would think some men would be giving better raises to women simply because of beauty, and maybe a smile shot in their direction.  Nope, it’s all about shoring up the female vote in November.  If the liberals can convince women us conservatives are out to run/ruin/destroy every aspect of their lives, the democrats will get their vote in November.

It is an absolute mystery to me how highly intelligent people, or marginally intelligent people for that matter, fall for these sort of amateurish pranks. War against women, what a joke.

I’ll Take 1%

I’ll preface this as normal, I’m not a big Mitt Romney fan, he is a standard Northeast Republican, a liberal streak runs through him.  Yet again I’ll say this also, if he is the nominee, I’ll support him…bumper sticker, yard sign, etc.  Every year we hear that “this is the most important election ever”, well in this case that is true.  I’ll take a Northeast republican over the dictator wanna be, communist at heart currently putting his feet on the Oval Office desk.

Everyone seems to want to dog Romney out for being rich, for being out of touch because his wife has a couple of Cadillacs (woo hoo, my dad has a Lincoln), and a new mansion in California that has an elevator for his cars.  SO WHAT!   I watched Meet the Press this morning and they actually had a video montage of Romney’s “gaffes” about his money.  Glenn Beck has been so in the tank for Santorum, that even he and his guys were making fun of Romney for his wealth and how he couldn’t relate to normal people.  SO WHAT!  Presidents of all stripes have money, Obama has a 1.4 million dollar house in Chicago…yeah it’s a big city, but 1.4 million is a lot no matter where you are.  The other factor is you have to earn enough money to be able to pay for the darn thing.

All people are doing by ragging on Romney is playing directly into the hands of the type of Occupy Wall Street crowd, who slam the “1%ers”, and are doing their damnedest to draw a dividing line amongst the population, hence class warfare.  I’ll gladly take a guy who is unapologetically rich and wants others to be able to have the same opportunity, over a communist who wants to take as much money from those who earn it, and GIVE it to those who don’t.

Another thing, people talk about having a president they “feel like they could drink a beer with”, no thanks.  I can drink beers with my buddy downstairs.  I also don’t want a president who is some smooth talking guy who can sound good to everyone, tell great jokes…no I want a president who is smarter and more of a bore than me, who is, for a change, all business.

Anyway, our current White House occupier goes on more vacations, spends Christmases in Hawaii, and plays golf at the rate of a rich guy.  Why the heck aren’t people calling attention to that kind of stuff every day.

Yeah, I’ll take Mitt Romney any day over the dictator wanna be, communist at heart who we are currently unfortunate enough to have to call president.

Not Irreversible

The NY Giants finished the regular season 9 and 7…that is a 56% winning ratio, yet they went on to win the Super Bowl.  A mediocre team was able to pull out the big win out of a ho-hum regular season.

Now to the election in November.  Obama has had a miserable presidency, twice the increase in debt in half of the time that Bush had.  Obamacare that most people don’t like.  Injecting himself into small situations to try to make himself look good.  And the other day he tried to liken himself to Gandhi and Nelson Mandela.  These are just the tip of the iceberg.

The Republicans seem to have put up a bunch of candidates of which it seems, the public aren’t really fans of.  I have spent a lot of time beating up BO for his sorry run as president, which is deserved, but November will be the test on who I beat up on in the future.

I blame the fact we have BO on the media for a complete lack of vetting, that the public didn’t really know what they were getting, and they didn’t.  But the next election I might have to change my mind.  This country is so high on spending, a lot of which goes into the pockets of people who don’t pay federal income taxes.  Subsidies for business that would tank without the help of federal (taxpayer) dollars, such as ethanol and solar (Solyndra).  The list goes on and on.

Next election though, if BO wins the White House again, I will turn my anger to the public.  People in this country have become so used to sucking on the government boob, that it seems like they will elect anyone who continues feeding them.  If BO is reelected that will mean one thing, that the population at large is refusing to give up the boob, even if it means the system will fall apart, as it has in Greece, and how it is going in Italy and Spain.  A lot of people can’t think beyond the day in front of them, and most of the same people don’t pay any attention to society or politics until campaign time.  At that point all they hear are endless talking points, and are clueless to what is actually going on.

Now if a Republican wins, that will send me a message that the population as a whole doesn’t like the path the country is on, and they want to make an effort at fixing it.  Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not in the tank for all Republicans, Congress under GW were a bunch of drunken spenders, and GW never vetoed anything.  But I would like to think the light speed BO is spending money has really brought the fiscal problems to the front.

Though I am not a real fan of any of the Republican candidates, I will vote for the nominee, if for anything, as a vote against BO.  I just hope the rest of the voters who aren’t fans of the nominees will do the same.  I truly believe if BO gets another four years the country may well be on an irreversible course.

A long story shorter, don’t let BO become the NY Giants (though the Giants had a better record).

Burn Baby, Burn

So, I’ve come to this conclusion.  Let’s get out of the Middle East permanently, and let them kill each other at will, with no U.S. interference.

The most recent mayhem in Afghanistan, which has now spread to Pakistan, over the destruction of Korans by our military, is completely out of hand.  These idiots will kill and maim anyone who doesn’t believe what they believe.  They will kill Christians and burn their churches to the ground simply because they are Christian…not  Muslim.  They repeatedly attack Jews in Israel, because they aren’t Muslim.  Our military has burned our own bibles entering Afghanistan because the Muslims were concerned we were going to try to proselytize to them.  Yet when we destroy (burned) a handful of Korans because bad guys in lock up were writing messages to each other in them, the Islamic world goes crazy and starts killing because they are offended.  Seems familiar to the insanity they showed after a cartoon of Mohammed with a bomb for turban.

We have been in Afghanistan for over 10 years, shedding the blood of our troops, spending billions of dollars to get rid of bad guys.  What are the thanks?  Four of our guys get thanked by being murdered by Afghan troops because they are mad about the Koran destruction.  What else happens?  Our president and his minions are out there apologizing left and right, thinking that will help calm people down…it hasn’t, not in the slightest.  What else happens?  The Afghanistan president, Hamid Karzai, says there should be public trials of the troops who did the burning, oh, and the chief UN representative says they should be punished.  What hasn’t happened?  I haven’t heard one word expressing any type of apology for the murder of our guys…no, the book is more important.

Let’s see.  We had our embassy overrun and hostages taken by Iran.  Libyans bombed airlines.  We had peace keepers who were blown up in Lebanon.  We’ve had two wars with Iraq.  We are in the longest conflict in our nations history in Afghanistan.  We’ve had ships blown up in ports.  More embassies blown up in Africa.  We had Somalia.  The list goes on and on.  They keep doing bad things to us, yet we keep trying to be nice guys by helping get rid of their bad guys and sending them financial help.  To what?  Lost American blood, that’s it.  They have always hated us, and they will always hate us…we aren’t Muslim, and that’s all the reason they need.

Yeah, over 10 years in and this is what we get.  It’s time to pull ALL of our guys out of there.  Let’s help Israel, they have been screwed over and blamed for everything since they have been around.  After all, our country was founded on Judeo/Christian values.  The bible still has the old testament, which is the Jewish bible.  So yeah, let’s keep the faith with them.

For the rest.  Screw them all.  Let them kill and maim each other to their heart’s delight. But at the same time, we tell them if something bad comes our way, via you…we will come back and turn your country into a sheet of glass.

Nice Try

So, Mitt Romney is the lead guy right now, lucky us.

Four years ago Mitt lost in the primaries to John McCain, who in turn was trounced by BO. Not only did McCain get trounced, but it was by a guy with zero history, well, a history that wasn’t reported on.

So, four years later Romney is still trying to convince people how conservative he is. Wouldn’t one think that after four years that stage would be long over?

Now, I’m not a huge fan of the others either. Looking at the Republican field makes me wonder “is the best we can do?”

I’ll say this out front, I’ll vote for the nominee, though maybe holding my nose the whole time.

It’s simple, if BO gets reelected after his disastrous, dictator light, presidency, the country will get exactly what it deserves…closer to looking like Greece.

No Pain, No Gain

OK, I’m not an economist, but I am a thinker. This ridiculous debt “super committee” can’t seem to get out of their own way. Both sides blocking each other, appears no one really wants a deal. So, now we have a “super committee”, which has done one thing so far…taken the best and brightest (insert gagging sounds) from a useless congress and made a super useless committee.

They continue to look at cutting this and cutting that, no one wants their pet projects or favorite programs cut. If they can’t decide on anything they should do this…cut EVERYTHING by 10%. 10% could be cut easily, the wasted spending and unnecessary procurement of our dollars is rampant. Here is a good example, the city of Columbia, MO has received well over 20 million dollars of federal funding to promote “non motorized” transportation…in other words, feet and bicycles. Talk about stupid.

And they keep talking about needing “increased revenue”, well that could come in the form of getting rid of some deductions. How about this, for one tax year NO ONE gets to write off anything, no work clothes, no mortgage, no kids, no charitable contributions (I don’t get this, are you donating for the cause or for the write-off)…nothing.

Along with a permanent 10% across the board cut by the federal government (states without a balanced budget in their constitutions should follow suit), and a one year moratorium on write-offs, would go a long way. I don’t have any figures on how much money would flow back into Washington, but it would be a lot, and every penny of it would have to go to paying down the debt.

The only way we are going to get out of this mess is for EVERYONE to feel some pain. Not some “super committee” picking and choosing who will feel that pain…based on their personal preferences.

Oh, and I forgot one major item. If congress and their drunken spending is how we got into this mess, and they routinely hav a 9% approval rating, then why the hell do we continue to re-elect the same inept knuckleheads every two and six years? Fire every stinking incumbent next November…which leads to another topic.

28 years ago today 241 Americans (220 Marines, 18 Sailors, and three civilians) were blown up at the Beirut International Airport while on a U.N. peacekeeping mission. In a separate bombing the same day, 58 French troops were killed. That act was left unpunished.

This was a needles slaughter. 28 years later Hezbollah, via Iran, is basically running Lebanon. Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility.

When are we ever going to learn that all our blood spilled in that region is for nothing. They hate anyone not a Muslim…pure and simple, always have always will. All you have to do is read some history to know this is true.

With that said, this is a sad anniversary to have to remember. May those who lost their lives that day rest in peace, and know they are not forgotten.

We Don’t Need No Stinking Investigation

Whether or not you agree we should have been involved in Libya, spending a billion dollars in the process, doesn’t matter now…it’s a done deal.

What I find interesting is we (NATO…which is we) spent over six months bombing, many time deliberately targeting Qadaffis’ compound, or other areas we thought he might be located. So we and the French attack a convoy (that we supposedly didn’t know had Qadaffi as a passenger), the convoy goes boom, and Qadaffi runs and finds a drainage pipe to hide in. When the rebels found him, they paraded him around, then put a bullet in his head…end of story. That bullet saved an obscene amount of money and many years of a pointless trial/circus at the Hague (waste).

So what happens now, the U.N. decides there needs to be an investigation of his death, and Hillary Clinton just agreed with that on Meet the Press. Brilliant.

Nope, no investigation needed, he died a fitting and recorded end.

Appoint this…

Back in 2004, Michele Bachmann had some choice words on how she felt about gays.  No problem there, this is still a free country and you can basically say what you want.  But when you are in the public eye everything you say is being recorded in voice or video…and you better bet that it will come back to revisit you later, well, that is if you are a republican.

On Meet the Press this past Sunday, David Gregory interviewed Representative Bachmann and had a “gotcha” question for her.  First he played the audio of her comments about gays, then he proceeded to ask her, should she win the election, if she would ever appoint an openly gay person to her cabinet.  Her answer was that she would appoint people who upheld the constitution and subscribed to her views.  That wasn’t good enough for Gregory, he badgered and hammered on that question about five different ways.  First off I’m willing to bet the vast majority of gay people are liberal and wouldn’t want to work for her in the first place, so the question was really stupid.  Second, how different would it be if he had asked her if she would ever appoint a pro-choice person to her administration, or if she would appoint a person who believes in raising taxes.  Why on earth would anyone consider appointing a person who is opposed to, and possibly work against your core beliefs.

It really is pathetic how blatant the media is in its efforts to tar and feather conservatives, while leaving their own party alone.  How many people during the 2008 presidential campaign ever heard about BO’s fondness for communists in his college years?  How about the fact that his mother cultural Marxist.  Did anyone ever ask him if he would appoint a person who against gays to his administration?  How about the fact that his campaign kick off/fundraiser was held in Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorhn’s house…people who were flat-out domestic terrorists in the 70’s (look up Weather Underground, it was them).   I could go on and on with examples of the pass the media gave him.

How about this gem.  BO says to George Stephanopoulos “My Muslim faith”, what does Georgie boy do?  He corrects him and says “Your Christian faith”.

Point is this, Republicans have to watch how and what they say.  If it’s a core belief they won’t compromise on, so be it, but they better be prepared to back up what they say, rather than trying to put a spin on it to appease the likes of David Gregory.  The liberal media will do anything it can to smear and paint conservatives in a bad light…espcially conservative women.
