Let’s Quit With The Recycled Dynasty Candidates

December 19, 2014

Apparently Jeb Bush is throwing his hat into the 2016 presidential ring. Big surprise? NO, but personally, I’ve got Bush and Clinton fatigue. Why do we have to keep churning through the same few people for our leaders? Why does either the Democratic party or the GOP think these two candidates are the best out there among millions of people? I don’t get it and don’t want another Bush or Clinton in the White House in 2016.

Jeb Bush is a nice enough guy and I believe he does have some accomplishments under his belt as governor of Florida, but he’s all in on immigration and he has been pushing federal control of our schools through Common Core. Those 2 items alone ~even if he weren’t the third Bush presidential candidate, should give pause to anyone who would vote in 2016.

Killary Clinton has a pitiful curriculum vitae. Tell me one thing she accomplished in the Senate. I thought so, you cannot. Tell me some of her great achievements as Secretary of State. Don’t forget as first lady she crafted the 1st failed healthcare scam. She lied and botched her way around the Benghazi Embassy attacks and is still lying about that today. Okay, one thing she’s done, she became a grandmother to Charlotte. Another in the Clinton dynasty?

And don’t forget about all the damage & theft from White House as they left at the end of Bill’s reign. We just do not need either of these two people leading our country going forward.

Think About This . . .

December 17, 2014

This is true and with all the blather about separation of church and state, no prayer in schools, removal of Santa Claus from school plays because of some twisted association with Christianity (?), and the general persecution of Christians everywhere just think for a minute what America would be like without religion.

As religion loses its influence over the lives of Americans, what will happen to our democracy? Have we already lost so much of our past religious teachings that our democracy does not work? Is this why there is no longer any ethics in government? And if there is no rule of law practiced by our leaders & politicians why should anyone else follow the rule of law? Oh . . . . they don’t. Just take a look around. Tyranny leads to anarchy.

Even a Calculator With No Batteries Computes This Action to Bankruptcy

December 15, 2014

And the Republicans did it to us! Apparently they didn’t get the message by way of their landslide midterm victories -the American people don’t want business as usual. Their win was supposed to be a mandate for change, a pull-back from the fiscal cliff.

BTW, why is the Chicago Fed bricking up the windows in the ground floor? Do they know something we don’t?time bomb

So what’d they do? The $1.01 trillion dollar omnibus bill just passed  allows the banks to stuff $300 TRILLION worth of toxic derivatives under the FDIC umbrella, putting taxpayers on the hook for the inevitable losses (hat-tip Bill Holter of Miles Franklin). Understand that the FDIC was already heavily over-leveraged with only $54 billion insuring over $6 trillion, now add $300 trillion more, all I can say is forget about it! Michael Snyder of The Economic Collapse blog wrote about it too.

And how did they come up with this idea? Well the legislation just passed by the house and awaiting Senate approval was provided & crafted by none other than Citigroup as reported by Mother Jones a year ago!

This is why we have to get away from the massive omnibus bills (this one over 1,600 pages) that nobody reads. The longer the verbiage in any legislation, the more opportunity to slip in favors and deals that are not in the best interests of ‘Joe-citizen taxpayer, you and me!

The Citi-drafted legislation will benefit five of the largest banks in the country—Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo.

NO ONE in Washington can be trusted. They will NOT fix themselves. The government and the banksters are way to cozy under the covers. We must take advantage of the tool left to us by the framers in the form of Article V, section 2 of the U.S. Constitution.

Touché Mayor DeBlasio; NYC Police Union Sends a Message to The Mayor

December 14, 2014

Dis us if you will, but don’t bother coming to our funerals, is the message the New York City Police Union sent loud and clear to Mayor DeBlasio.

“If he doesn’t respect us in life, why should we have him respect us in the time of our death?”

I admit to taking some heat for my last post regarding excessive use of force and police brutality in the Eric Garner case, but I agree whole-heartedly with the NYPD policemen and women who are reacting to DeBlasio’s offensive stance and rhetoric about having to coach his son about the dangers of “being stopped while black” in New York City. DeBlasio in my opinion leans a little too far to the side of Eric Holder, NObama and Al -not-so Sharpton in ginning up the race thing in the way white police officers do their job.

Let’s Be Honest; NYPD Choking of Eric Garner Was Excessive Use of Force

December 4, 2014

It’s too bad the Ferguson clusterf**k has tainted the New York City case because the ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ meme is asinine and disingenuous by all who are repeating it including most of the media, the Al Sharptons and his look-alikes, Obama & Holder and the NFL football players, and especially the Congressional Black Caucus! But there is very little reason to say the treatment Eric Garner received at the hands of the New York City Police for selling cigarettes!!!!! . . . . was not over and beyond excessive. He should not have died and it is hard to imagine how the grand jury did not indict the police officer.

Choke-hold or no, how many times did he say “I can’t breathe”? Eleven? Something like that, maybe more, maybe nine or ten, but certainly enough times that they should have backed off. Garner’s family and friends, and those who have been crying wolf in the Ferguson case have a righteous cause in this brutality case.

And maybe taxes in New York are too high. Maybe the behemoth federal and state governments have too much say in our lives. What do you think?

BTW, I do not think this was a racial thing either. It was police brutality, pure and simple. It seems Governor Cuomo has issued the word to crack down on those selling untaxed cigarettes. Garner was selling “loosies” individual smokes to those who cannot afford the high taxes. It’s a favorite of centralized government -get you addicted to something then tax it to death and this may be just what happened here. And who do the police work to serve? The state or the citizen?

There’s no question, this is a volatile issue, but it’s NOT a racial issue.

Obama’s Unconstitutional Amnesty Action + A $3,000 Hiring Incentive Gives Illegals a Leg-up On American Citizens

December 3, 2014

You cannot make this up folks. Obama’s policy gives legal status and three-year work permits to nearly half of the estimated 12 million undocumented residents in the U.S. But the real killer is the fact that firms will save $3,000 for each illegal they hire over an American citizen. Why? Because technically the illegal immigrants will not be eligible for public benefits (but if you believe they won’t get food stamps, earned income tax credits and FREE medical care at any emergency room they walk into, I want some of whatever you are smoking!), sooooo -employers will not have to pay a penalty for not providing health insurance to these people giving them a huge leg-up in jobs over Americans.

Why is it that it always sucks to be an American citizen these days under Obama’s rules and actions. This is upside down and inside out. But Mr. Obama is sticking to his guns:

“Immigrants are good for the economy. We keep on hearing that they’re bad, but a report by my Council of Economic Advisers put out last week shows how the actions we’re taking will grow our economy for everybody.”

And pigs fly!

I’m Guessing Neither Eric Holder Nor Barry Obama Got The Memo

December 2, 2014

Because these two racists are just the typical type looking for somebody else to blame.

Not only are both the Attorney General and the President poking their nose in places they have no business, playing both the race card and the blame game (again), they now want to federalize police forces in America buying cameras and mandating best practices police policies at the municipal level all over the county. The federal government has no business in our local police departments. Of course should the Congress deny this request they are racist!

And if you think these so-called ‘best practices’ policies are going to make our streets or our policemen or the communities safer, you are dead wrong. Just think of the rules of engagement which has hog-tied our military men and women (with an increasing fatal casualty county) to the point they have to wait until the enemy fires on them before they can do their jobs.
