Obama Using Dictatorial Powers

Since taking office, President Obama has been wielding executive powers like free beer at an open bar. He has created a number of regulations without the consent of Congress. These regulations are costing taxpayers millions of dollars.

In an effort to curb in the president’s dictatorial use of executive power, Rep Geoff Davis, R(KY) first introduced the Regulations From the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act of 2010 of REINS Act 2010, but the measure failed. This year, Rep Davis re-introduced the REINS Act 2011 with the co-sponsorship of over 200 co-sponsors.

On Wednesday, the House passed the REINS Act 2011 by a 241 to 184 vote. The measure will now move to the Senate where the Democrats have vowed to defeat it. And if for some reason it does pass the Senate, President Obama has vowed to veto it since it will take away his dictatorial powers.

One of the main sponsors of the REINS Act was Rep Geoff Davis, R(KY) who sent out the following statement following the House passage of the measure.

Today, the House of Representatives passed Congressman Geoff Davis’ bill, H.R. 10, the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act, by a bipartisan vote of 241 to 184.

Congressman Davis said, “The point of the REINS Act is accountability. Each member of Congress must take a stand and be accountable for regulations that will have the greatest impact on our economy. Regulatory compliance costs small businesses an estimated $10,500 per employee annually. At a time of high unemployment, we must do something about this massive burden. No longer would Congress be able to avoid accountability by writing vague laws requiring the benefits up front and leaving the unpopular or costly elements up to the bureaucrats who will write those elements of the law at some later date.

“I want to thank all of the supporters of the REINS Act, especially Speaker Boehner, Chairman Smith, Senator Paul, and the over 200 co-sponsors for their tireless efforts to advance this commonsense legislation.”

Speaker of the House John Boehner said, “Passage of the REINS Act is a significant step towards fulfilling our obligations to the American people outlined in the Pledge to America. The REINS Act will make the regulatory process more open and accountable, and rein in unelected bureaucrats from strangling small businesses in red tape, which will give private sector job creators the confidence they need to grow our economy and hire.”

House Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith said, “More than once this year, the President has talked about the dangers that excessive regulations pose to our economy. But unfortunately, his actions speak louder than his words. The Obama administration is preparing numerous regulations that each will cost the economy $1 billion or more per year.

“The American people want job creation, not more regulation. The REINS Act reins in out-of-control federal regulations that burden America’s businesses and job creators. It guarantees that Congress – not unelected agency officials – will be accountable for all new major regulatory

"It's not that liberals aren't smart...

IT'S ABOUT TIME WE GET THE TRUTH OUT THERE! It is shocking that so many who walk among us are uninformed. It's OK to disagree but let's try to get our facts straight!!
Remember Jan 3, 2007

The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009
it was actually January 3rd 2007 the day the Democrats took
over the House of Representatives and the Senate, the start
of the 110th Congress. The Democrat Party controlled a
majority in both chambers for the first time since the end
of the 103rd Congress in 1995. For those who are listening
to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is
"Bush's Fault", think about this:

January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the
Senate and the Congress:

At the time:

The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77

The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%

The Unemployment rate was 4.6%

George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT

Remember the day...

January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over
the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took
over the Senate Banking Committee.

The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in
what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!

Thank Congress for taking us from 13,000 DOW, 3.5 GDP and
4.6% Unemployment to this CRISIS by dumping 5-6 TRILLION
Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac fiasco's! (BTW: Bush asked Congress 17
TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001, because
it was financially risky for the U.S. economy, but no one
was listening). (I personally recall Bush asking for Congressional oversight
because "Wall Street was getting too greedy!")

And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND
Freddie Mac?


And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie???

OBAMA and the Democratic Congress.

So when someone tries to blame Bush...

Bush may have been in the car, but the Democrats
were in charge of the gas pedal and steering wheel they
were driving. Set the record straight on Bush!

So, as you listen to all the commercials and media from the
Democrats who are now distancing themselves from their
voting record and their party, remember how they didn't
listen to you when you said you didn't want all the
bailouts, you didn't want the health care bill, you didn't
want cap and trade, you didn't want them to continue
spending money we don't have..

I'm not forgetting their complicity in getting us into this
mess, and I'll be marking my vote accordingly!

"It's not that liberals aren't smart, it's just that so
much of what they know isn't so" -Ronald Reagan


I'd heard years ago that Snopes was a left-wing operation but found it odd that there was absolutely nothing negative to be found about Obama when he was running for President.
Most of us have gone to Snopes for verify information that we were not sure about. Now, come to find out, Snopes is not the paragon of truth we thought it was. I just eliminated them as a source of honesty and integrity. Please read and pass on to your friends.
In our Search for the truth department, we find what I have suspected on many occasions. I went to Snopes to check this out and they said it was false and there were no such dockets so I Googled the Supreme Court, typed in Obama-Kagan, and guess what? Yep you got it. Snopes lied. Everyone of those dockets are there. So Here is what I wrote Snopes:
Referencing the article about Elena Kagan and Barak Obama dockets: The information you have posted stating that there were no such cases as claimed and the examples you gave are blatantly false. I went directly to the Supreme Courts website, typed in Obama Kagan and immediately came up with all of the dockets that the article made reference to.. I have long suspected that you really slant things but this revelation is really shocking. You exist behind a veil of half truths and distorted facts. Hoping you will be honest and forthcoming in the future is probably expecting too much.
That being said, if you really didn't know THIS then your investigative reporting is a sham; Kagan was representing Obama in all the petitions to prove his citizenship. Now she may help rule on them. Folks, this is really ugly. Chicago Politics; and the beat goes on and on and on...
Once again the US Senate sold us out! Well, someone figured out why Obama nominated Elana Kagan for the Supreme Court.... Pull up the Supreme Courts website, go to the docket and search for Obama. Kagan was the Solicitor General for all the suits against him filed with the Supreme Court to show proof of natural born citizenship. He owed her big time. All of the requests were denied of course. They were never heard! It just keeps getting deeper and deeper, doesn't it? The American people mean nothing any longer. It all comes down to payback time for those who compromised themselves to elect someone that really has no true right to even be there.
Here are some websites of the Supreme Court Docket: When you look up some of these hearings and guess what?? Elana Kagan is the attorney representing Obama!!!
Check out these examples:​arch.aspx?FileName=%2Fdocketfi​les%2F09-8857.htm​arch.aspx?FileName=%2Fdocketfi​les%2F09-8857.htm​arch.aspx?FileName=%2Fdocketfi​les%2F09-6790.htm​arch.aspx?FileName=%2Fdocketfi​les%2F09-6790.htm​arch.aspx?FileName=%2Fdocketfi​les%2F09-724.htm​arch.aspx?FileName=%2Fdocketfi​les%2F09-724.htm

If you are not interested in justice or in truth don't bother checking.
However, if you hold sacred the freedoms granted to you by the U.S. Constitution
By all means, please PASS it ON! to those not connected to the internet. Thanks

You Won't See This on the MSM News!!

George Washington statue is hidden at the MLK rally
in Columbia , SC.
The annual MLK observance at the state house in Columbia
SC had an interesting twist this year. The event is held on
the north side steps of the statehouse.
Prominent at that location is a large bronze statue of
George Washington.
This year, the NAACP constructed a "box" to conceal the
father of our country from view so that participants would
not be 'offended' by his presence.
I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw this picture of
the MLK Day rally in Columbia , South Carolina .
This rally was sponsored by the NAACP and they said that
they covered the statue because they "didn't want to
offend anyone". Really? George Washington is the father
of this nation. How is he offensive to anyone?
Can you imagine what would happen if we covered the
statue of Dr. Martin L. King on President's Day? or is only
the statue of a 'white guy' offensive ??
Of course, this display of anti-Americanism wasn't covered
at all by the national media (surprise, surprise !!), and the
local paper in Columbia only ran a short piece on it. It has
been covered a little by the blog-world but I think the word
needs to get out to the general public that this is what the
NAACP is all about...militant and (most definately) racist.

The Good The Bad & The Ugly- Learn From Them

Every person with whom you interact is important in forming your soul growth and your character & experience in this life.

We look at the bad relationships we've had and don't appreciate the growth we've accomplished in that relationship. Sometimes we form bonds with others in our survival of certain relationships.

For instance, a lot of people are very disgusted with us having Obama for a President, but if you look at the good that's come out of it rather than just the bad, a lot of good has been accomplished. The nation was complacent. The citizenry relied totally on the mainstream media, to their detriment, believing everything we heard on the News and read in the paper. What they omitted to report was as important as what they misinformed us about and what they failed to do themselves. The mainstream media, in the past, always vetted people running for President. They didn't vet Obama. Plus the man lied about what he was going to do, what his purpose was, what his beliefs were. Now he's trying to appear to be inept, when its obvious to those paying close attention that he's right on target to accomplish what he let slip to "Joe the Plumber". His goal is to "fundamentally transform America" into a Socialist/Communist country where he can be the dictator.

What good did this do? It brought together a lot of Patriots who are working together without the mainstream media, asking, growing, learning, educating themselves. In the process we are learning personal responsibility for our own actions, and learning that we have God-given Freedoms that can never be taken from us.

In our personal lives we need to look at our "bumping against" all others as an opportunity for learning, growing, and becoming in our own soul growth and our own trip through this life experience. Whether good or bad, each experience is an opportunity for learning and growth. We need to examine each such experience and extricate the good that came to us from it and give thanks for the experience that contributed to our growth.

Armageddon was Yesterday; Now Survive

Armageddon was yesterday. Today, we have a serious problem.

I received this note in an email from a friend. This first note is from a dentist who shared info about his doctor friend.
I do not know who wrote the story at the bottom.
However, a similar article in a magazine made the same comparison about what
is happening to our country.

Some friends of ours, a physician and his wife and their daughter just
recently returned from a seminar in Cuba. They said that Cuba was like a
country that was in a time warp,...nothing has been changed since the
takeover of Castro in the mid 1950s. Buildings are in disrepair,... not
painted or repaired. The cars are mostly American from the 50s and look like
clunkers. The roads are terrible. The entire infrastructure has
deteriorated. The Cuban government owns everything and every business, and
everyone works for the government. The doorman at the hotel makes more money
than a Cuban physician, because of tips from the few tourists that visit.
There is no incentive to work hard or get an education. So they have a
terrible shortage of medical help.... why spend the money and time to get
such an education, when you are worked beyond endurance and there is no
compensation? Their hospitals are ancient and don't have any up to date
equipment. This is what happens when the government takes over. Read
" A democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are
willing to work and give to those who would not."
~~ Thomas Jefferson


What others see plainly, we often ignore.
I'm not saying this is true, just something to think about this is some
pretty good reading...

Here's something to think about. More truth than fiction.
I remember asking dad about Castro when I was about 9 years old. I asked,
"Is Castro a good guy or bad?"

Dad said he couldn't tell!! This was about 1955. We were living in Louisiana
at the time. Dad was in the army there.

Cuba was fairly close and in the news a lot. The Cubans were asking the same
question! Ike was president.

This past July, we had the pleasure of sharing a summer barbecue with a
refugee from Cuba . Our dinner conversation was starkly different than most.

This refugee came to the United States as a young boy in the early 1960s.
His family was more fortunate than most as they were able to bring a
suitcase and $100 when they fled Castro's newly formed revolutionary

Our dinner consisted of all-American fare: hamburgers, potato salad,
watermelon and fresh ears of sweet corn. This is a menu shared with
Family and friends nationwide, while celebrating the birth of our beloved
American the Fourth of July.

We began with a simple discussion about our country and the direction it has
taken since Barack Obama came to power. We shared the usual
Complaints about the sour economy and liberal social engineering emanating
from the rulers in Washington..
But then he said it. The sentence came naturally. I assume it was unplanned.
But it carried the weight of a freight train. "You know
When Castro took power, none of us knew he was a Communist." We sat stunned.
He continued, "Yes, we all thought he was a patriot, a nationalist. Before
the revolution he didn't sound like a radical."
The comparison at this point was easy, and I interjected,
"You mean just like Barack Obama?"
He responded; "Yes, just like Barack Obama."
He continued, "We were all shocked as the government just continued to grab
more power. First they said the revolution is over, so please turn in your
guns. We all complied."
"I remember my uncle saying after it started; 'Castro will only nationalize
some of the big industries, he will never come and take our family hardware
store.' But that is exactly what happened; Castro started with the sugar
mills and the large industries, but they eventually came and knocked on the
door of our family hardware store. My family had run this store for
generations. They said we now own the hardware store, you work for us. And
that nice, large four-bedroom home you own, it is now our property also, and
you can move yourself and five children into two rooms of the house because
others are moving in with you." The lesson learned from this discussion is a
lesson most Americans refuse to hear.. Political leaders can lie about their
agenda and once in office they can take totally unexpected turns.
If you had asked us three years ago if we thought General Motors would be
nationalized, we would have never believed it. We could never contemplate a
country where the rule of law, the most fundamental building block of a
justice society would be evaporating just like it did in Castro's Cuba in
the early 1960s.
But the news of injustice keeps increasing. Black Panthers are not charged
with wrongdoing by the U.S. Department of Justice because their crimes are
against whites. The bondholders of GM are stripped of their assets without
due process by the government. Governmental leaders are bribed in full
daylight only to have all criminal investigations blocked by the Attorney
General. The U.S. borders are overrun with crime and illegal activity and
the leaders in D.C. move to protect the law breakers, while the innocent are
killed and overrun. When local communities attempt to enforce the law, they
are ridiculed and threatened as extremists, racists and bigots. Then, they
are sued by the very administration entrusted with enforcing the law.

Without the rule of law the U.S. Constitution is a sham.
Without the rule of law our beloved America is swiftly becoming a country
where only the well connected and politically powerful will be safe.

As Michelle Malkin has so eloquently explained in her recent book, a culture
of corruption has replaced honest government.

The only way this problem will be fixed is by massive citizen action. All
honest citizens that want to be treated equally must come together and
demand that the favoritism, the bribes, the uneven enforcement of law end
now. And yes, it can happen here.

And may God save the United States of America !

Personally, I believe it is happening here, and if you think so too the
least you can do is forward this site to your friends.

Six million plus Jews didn't believe it would happen in Germany either.

If you're in these United States of America you're next on the list. The
real problem here is the boy from Cuba did manage to make it to the U.S.. We
will not have any place to escape to except death.

Why Americans Want Secure Borders

Well, there's the first worry, if nobody's watching terrorists could get in and foment unrest and civil disobedience, or even bomb us or otherwise terrorize us. And then there's the illegal alien problem. We can't afford it.

For Those Who Do Not Understand.....

'JOE vs. JOSE'

You have two families: "Joe Legal" and "Jose Illegal".
Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California ..

Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes
$25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.

Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number,
and gets paid $15.00 cash "under the table".

Ready? Now pay attention....

Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000.00 per week, or $52,000.00 per year.
Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe Legal now has $31,231.00.

Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.0 0 per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has $31,200.00.

Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his family
at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $24,031.00.

Jose Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and local clinics and emergency hospitals at a cost of $0.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.

Joe Legal makes too much money and is not eligible for food stamps or welfare.
Joe Legal pays $500.00 per month for food, or $6,000.00 per year.
Joe Legal now has $18,031.00.

Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps, WIC and welfare. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.

Joe Legal pays rent of $1,200.00 per month, or $14,400.00 per year.
Joe Legal now has 9,631 ..00.

Jose Illegal receives a $500.00 per month Federal Rent Subsidy.
Jose Illegal pays out that $500.00 per month, or $6,000.00 per year.
Jose Illegal still has $ 31,200.00.

Joe Legal pays $200.00 per month, or $2,400.00 for car insurance.
Some of that is uninsured motorist insurance.
Joe Legal now has $7,231.00.

Jose Illegal says, "We don't need no stinkin' insurance!" and still has $31,200.00.

Joe Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, etc..

Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, and
what he sends out of the country every month..

Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after work.

Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.

Joe Legal's and Jose Illegal's children both attend the same elementary school.
Joe Legal pays for his children's lunches, while Jose Illegal's children get a
government sponsored lunch. Jose Illegal's children have an after school
ESL (English as Second Language) program. Joe Legal's children go home.

Now, when they reach college age, Joe Legal's kids may not get into a State
School and may not qualify for scholarships, grants or other tuition help,
even though Joe has been paying for State Schools through his taxes, while
Jose Illegal's kids "go to the head of the class" because they are a minority.

Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but
Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.

My solution to illegal aliens, and their "anchor babies"? I believe they should return to where they came from, mostly Mexico and Central America. Their anchor babies are "US Citizens". If they want to keep their babies they should renounce their citizenship and take them along. If they do not, the babies should be given up for adoption and the parents should go home without them.

Why are they coming anyway? Tons of American jobs have been moved to Mexico! Why don't they go there to work? We just can't afford to be compassionate.

It appears Obama's solution to illegal aliens is to turn America into a Third World Country without Freedom, so nobody will want to come here.


Who Knew?? All makes sense in the end as you will clearly see !!

Railroad tracks.
The US standard railroad gauge (distance between the rails) is 4 feet, 8.5 inches. That's an exceedingly odd number.

Why was that gauge used? Because that's the way they built them in England, and English expatriates designed the US railroads.

Why did the English build them like that? Because the first rail lines were built by the same people who built the pre-railroad tramways, and that's the gauge they used.
Why did 'they' use that gauge then?

Because the people who built the tramways used the same jigs and tools that they had used for building wagons, which used that wheel spacing.

Why did the wagons have that particular odd wheel spacing? Well, if they tried to use any other spacing, the wagon wheels would break on some of the old, long distance roads in England, because that's the spacing of the wheel ruts.

So who built those old rutted roads?

Imperial Rome built the first long distance roads in Europe (including England ) for their legions. Those roads have been used ever since. And the ruts in the roads? Roman war chariots formed the initial ruts, which everyone else had to match for fear of destroying their wagon wheels.

Since the chariots were made for Imperial Rome, they were all alike in the matter of wheel spacing. Therefore, the United States standard railroad gauge of 4 feet, 8.5 inches is derived from the original specifications for an Imperial Roman war chariot. In other words, bureaucracies live forever.

So the next time you are handed a specification/procedure/process, and wonder, 'What horse's ass came up with this?' , you may be exactly right.

Imperial Roman army chariots were made just wide enough to accommodate the rear ends of two war horses.

Now, the twist to the story:

When you see a Space Shuttle sitting on its launch pad, you will notice that there are two big booster rockets attached to the sides of the main fuel tank. These are solid rocket boosters, or SRBs. The SRBs are made by Thiokol at their factory in Utah ....

The engineers who designed the SRBs would have preferred to make them a bit larger, but the SRBs had to be shipped by train from the factory to the launch site. The railroad line from the factory happens to run through a tunnel in the mountains, and the SRBs had to fit through that tunnel. The tunnel is slightly wider than the railroad track, and the railroad track, as you now know, is about as wide as two horses' behinds.

So, a major Space Shuttle design feature of what is arguably the world's most advanced transportation system was determined over two thousand years ago by the width of a horse's ass. And you thought being a horse's ass wasn't important?
So, Horse's Asses control almost everything...

Explains a whole lot of things --like what is wrong in Washington DC. doesn't it?

Rick Perry wasn't first on my list. I only had one person on my list and that was Sarah Palin. She is going to be President some day. But both I, and a bunch of others who love her, were on the fence about her running for President. We didn't want her to be saddled with a multiplication of all of the hateful attacks she's had to deal with just being a former candidate for Vice President. It was a bitter sweet relief when she finally said she wasn't running. But then there was a fearful emptiness where there had been relief for someone who could restore America to her former glory, preserve our freedoms, restore respect to the oval office, and ensure the salvation of our nation and our Constitutional Republic.

Rick Perry seemed to be that person, and I was a little upset about the statement he made about giving instate tuition to illegal alien children. It is my belief that giving such perks to illegals will just encourage more illegals to cross the border to get superior schooling for their children.

I was also unclear at first about why he didn't want a fence on the border. Then I listened to the boots on the ground explanation and that did make more sense, although I think there should be a fence AND boots on the ground, lots of boots.

You must admit Governor Perry didn't do that well at the subsequent debates. I feel he was being a little too cautious and that he lost his fire because of the way his in-state tuition statement backfired. He should have jumped back into the saddle and tamed the beast. Instead he became too cautious. It made him look weak.

I listened then to Cain. It occurred to me he had one-liners that sounded good, and that rang a bell of caution in my head. Obama had one-liners and what he said sounded good, but it also did not have the ring of truth to it. I believe Cain is telling the truth, but all I'm hearing are one-liners, nothing of substance, no detailed explanation of answers to all of the issues. Cain seems a nice, honest, sincere man. But does he know how to save America and restore her?

As an aside, I got goose bumps early on listening to Obama in 08, they were goose bumps of fear. I recognized the smooth hypnotic speaking of a liar. The sonorous tones of a Hitler, hypnotizing people into believing him, but his eyes were cold and the way he stuck his nose up in the air put separation between him and the truth. I guess I've had too many relationships with pathological liars! I did not believe him for one minute. Obama's race had nothing to do with my feelings toward him. Americans are all races, and many of us are such a Heinz 57 conglomeration of races that we have no reason to use a person's race in determining his character. Then there's the added reason that I was right about my feelings about Obama.

Back to Herman Cain. I respect him for his success, for pulling himself up by his bootstraps and at first blush the 999 tax plan seemed interesting. It would be if that were the only tax, but in Indiana that would turn out to be a 16% sales tax! He never did explain anything but the 999, and then I kept hearing other things that pretty soon made the 999 look more like a 666. The plan became nearly as complicated as our present tax code! It was the only issue that Herman Cain had presented so far. He hasn't presented a plan for the many other issues that confront us. He has no record of serving the public. He has been a very successful executive in a business. But I began to think of other successful businessmen who were successful in business, but they wouldn't necessarily make a good public servant.

What about Romney, there's Romney. He's "the frontrunner"! He gives me the creeps. He appears to be an elite, above-it-all, "I'm better than you, and I know what's good for you" politician. We don't need another politician, especially one who declares that he will "replace Obamacare". We don't want Obamacare replaced! We want it repealed and forgotten!! We don't need government doing things for us. We want power returned to the states. We don't want money funneled to DC, and then doled out piece by piece back to the states. We want each state to acquire its operating capital from good business in the state, from modest taxes in the state. We want operations to occur in the state where waste and corruption can be better controlled. We want less rules and regulations! I hate rules! My favorite saying is "Don't Ask For Rules someone will make one up for you!" (It's also the title of one of my fiction novels by the way.)

Which all brought me back to Governor Perry. He did explain the in-state tuition thing, and it made some sense, though it still rankles somewhat, though I understand fairly that states that neighbor Texas on all sides also get the same reduced in-state tuition rate. He did explain that rather than a fence that could be readily scaled he wanted to have boots on the ground to stop the illegal aliens from entering the country. He also has an outstanding record of creating jobs, and he has plans for decreasing the size of government and comes closest to fulfilling the wants and needs of those of us who consider ourselves Independents & TeaPartiers. Now if he addresses the Crony Capitalism issue and resolves to make that go away as well, I'm sold.

Governor Perry should speak directly to the people. I'm sick of debates controlled by people with an Agenda. I want to see him speaking to the people Tea Party style.

Lee Iaccoca is still speaking!!

Would you believe that Lee Iacocca is 82 years old and is still kicking
butt? Check out his latest rant.

Just as true today as it was when his book first came out.

He was, and still is, a brilliant businessman!

Often we need to be reminded of Iacocca's words.

Remember Lee Iacocca, the man who rescued Chrysler Corporation from its
death throes? He's now 82 years old and has a new book, 'Where Have All The
Leaders Gone?'.

Lee Iacocca Says:

'Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's happening? Where
the hell is our outrage with this so called president? We should be
screaming bloody murder! We've got a gang of tax cheating clueless leftists
trying to steer our ship of state right over a cliff, we've got corporate
gangsters stealing us blind, and we can't even run a ridiculous
cash-for-clunkers program without losing $26 billion of the taxpayers'
money, much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone
sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, 'trust me, the
economy is getting better..'Better? You've got to be kidding. This is
America , not the damned 'Titanic'. I'll give you a sound bite: 'Throw all
the Democrats out, along with Obama!'

You might think I'm getting senile, that I've gone off my rocker, and maybe
I have. But someone has to speak up. I hardly recognize this country

The most famous business leaders are not the innovators but the guys in
handcuffs.. While we're fiddling in Afghanistan, Iran is completing their
nuclear bombs and missiles and nobody seems to know what to do. And the
liberal press is waving 'pom-poms' instead of asking hard questions. That's
not the promise of the ' America ' my parents and yours traveled across the
ocean for. I've had enough. How about you?

I'll go a step further. You can't call yourself a patriot if you're not
outraged. This is a fight I'm ready and willing to have. The Biggest 'C' is
Crisis! (Iacocca elaborates on nine C's of leadership, with crisis being the

Leaders are made, not born. Leadership is forged in times of crisis. It's
easy to sit there with thumb up your butt and talk theory. Or send someone
else's kids off to war when you've never seen a battlefield yourself. It's
another thing to lead when your world comes tumbling down.

On September 11, 2001, we needed a strong leader more than any other time in
our history. We needed a steady hand to guide us out of the ashes. A hell of
a mess, so here's where we stand.

We're immersed in a bloody war now with no plan for winning and no plan for
leaving.. But our soldiers are dying daily.

We're running the biggest deficit in the history of the world, and it's
getting worse every day!

We've lost the manufacturing edge to Asia, while our once-great companies
are getting slaughtered by health care costs.

Gas prices are going to skyrocket again, and nobody in power has a lucid
plan to open drilling to solve the problem. This country has the largest oil
reserves in the WORLD, and we cannot drill for it because the politicians
have been bought by the flea-hugging environmentalists.

Our schools are in a complete disaster because of the teachers' union.

Our borders are like sieves and they want to give all illegal's amnesty and
free healthcare.

The middle class is being squeezed to death every day.

These are times that cry out for leadership.

But when you look around, you've got to ask: 'Where have all the leaders
gone?' Where are the curious, creative communicators? Where are the people
of character, courage, conviction, omnipotence, and common sense? I may be a
sucker for alliteration, but I think you get the point..

Name me a leader who has a better idea for homeland security than making us
take off our shoes in airports and throw away our shampoo?

We've spent billions of dollars building a huge new bureaucracy, and all we
know how to do is react to things that have already happened.

Everyone's hunkering down, fingers crossed, hoping the government will make
it better for them. Now, that's just crazy.. Deal with life.

Name me an industry leader who is thinking creatively about how we can
restore our competitive edge in manufacturing. Who would have believed that
there could ever be a time when 'The Big Three' referred to Japanese car
companies? How did this happen, and more important, look what Obama did
about it!

Name me a government leader who can articulate a plan for paying down the
debt, or solving the energy crisis, or managing the health care problem. The
silence is deafening. But these are the crises that are eating away at our
country and milking the middle class dry.

I have news for the Chicago gangsters in Congress. We didn't elect you to
turn this country into a losing European Socialist state. What is everybody
so afraid of? That some bonehead on NBC or CNN news will call them a name?
Give me a break. Why don't you guys show some spine for a change?

Had Enough? Hey, I'm not trying to be the voice of gloom and doom here. I'm
trying to light a fire. I'm speaking out because I have hope - I believe in
America .. In my lifetime, I've had the privilege of living through some of
America 's greatest moments. I've also experienced some of our worst crises:
The 'Great Depression,' 'World War II,' the 'Korean War,' the 'Kennedy
Assassination,' the 'Vietnam War,' the 1970's oil crisis, and the struggles
of recent years since 9/11.

Make your own contribution by sending this to everyone you know and care
about. It's our country, folks, and it's our future. Our future is at stake!

Happy and safe Fall to you all!

By Wayne Allyn Root , June 6th, 2010
Barack Hussien Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent.
To the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he's doing.
He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure,
economic crisis and social chaos -- thereby destroying capitalism and
our country from within.
Barack Hussien Obama was my college classmate

( Columbia University , class of '83).
He is a devout Muslim do not be fooled.
Look at his Czars...anti-business..anti- american.
As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Barack Hussien Obama is
following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbi University ..
They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system
with government spending and entitlement demands.
Add up the clues below. Taken individually they're alarming.
Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn
the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority
that desperately needs government for survival ... and can be counted
on to always vote for bigger government.
Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it.
Universal health care . The health care bill had very little to do with health
care.. It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and
health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions).
Obama doesn't care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans
will add trillions to the national debt.
What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government .
Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill
in the middle of a depression?
Cap and trade. Like health care legislation having nothing to do with
health care, cap and trade has nothing to do with global warming.
It has everything to do with redistribution of income, government control
of the economy and a criminal payoff to Obama's biggest contributors.
Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns
NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants.
They will kick-back hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to
Obama and the Democratic Party to keep them in power.
The bonus is that all the new taxes on Americans with bigger cars,
bigger homes and businesses helps Obama "spread the wealth around."
Make Puerto Rico a state. Why? Who's asking for a 51st state?
Who's asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government
entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression?
Certainly not American taxpayers.
But this has been Barack Hussien Obama's plan all along.
His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressman and a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government.
Legalize 12 million illegal Mexican immigrants.
Just giving these 12 million potential new citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America .
But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted
on to support big government.
Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children,
food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and
eventually Social Security .
Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go?
It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions -- including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country.
It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could
keep paying union dues.
It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out
(after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions).
A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues).
All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their
bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America .
The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful.
The ends justify the means.
Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job
creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers,
redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did
nothing to deserve it (except vote for Obama).
Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to starve the government. Barack Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to starve his political opposition. With the acts outlined above, Barack Hussien Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the
Add it up and you've got the perfect Marxist scheme -- all devised by
my Columbia University college classmate Barack Hussien Obama
using the Cloward and Piven Plan ..
"Correctly attributed" says snopes!

What we get for our money

House Minority Leader Lawrence F. Cafero Jr., R-Norwalk, pictured standing, far right, speaks while colleagues Rep. Barbara Lambert, D-Milford and Rep. Jack F. Hennessy, D-Bridgeport, play solitaire Monday night as the House convened to vote on a new budget. (AP)
The guy sitting in the row in front of these two....he's on Facebook, and the guy behind Hennessy is checking out the baseball scores.
These are the folks that couldn't get the budget out by Oct. 1, and are about to control your health care, cap and trade, and the list goes on and on.
Should we buy them larger screen computers - or - a ticket home, permanently?

This is one of their 3-DAY WORK WEEKS that we all pay for (salary is about $179,000 per year). I am ready to start from the beginning by voting out all elected officials and not letting any of them stay in office for more than two terms. No more lifelong healthcare, retirement, voting in their own pay raises, taking perks on our taxes, etc.

This is an article I received in an email. It had no one to attribute it to, so here goes:

Heidi is the proprietor of a bar in Detroit. She realizes that virtually all of her customers are unemployed alcoholics and,as such, can no longer afford to patronize her bar.

To solve this problem, she comes up with a new marketing plan that allows her
customers to drink now, but pay later.

Heidi keeps track of the drinks consumed on a ledger (thereby granting the
customers loans).

Word gets around about Heidi's "drink now, pay later" marketing
strategy and, as a result, increasing numbers of customers flood into
Heidi's bar. Soon she has the largest sales volume for any bar in Detroit .
By providing her customers freedom from immediate payment demands, Heidi
gets no resistance when, at regular intervals, she substantially increases her
prices for wine and beer, the most consumed beverages.

Consequently, Heidi's gross sales volume increases massively.

A young and dynamic vice-president at the local bank recognizes that these
customer debts constitute valuable future assets and increases Heidi's
borrowing limit.

He sees no reason for any undue concern because he has the debts of the
unemployed alcoholics as collateral!

At the bank's corporate headquarters, expert traders figure a way to make
huge commissions, and transform these customer loans into DRINKBONDS.

These "securities" then are bundled and traded on international
securities markets.

Naive investors don't really understand that the securities being sold to
them "AAA Secured Bonds" really are debts of unemployed alcoholics.

Nevertheless, the bond prices continuously climb - and the securities soon
become the hottest-selling items for some of the nation's leading
brokerage houses.

One day, even though the bond prices still are climbing, a risk manager at
the original local bank decides that the time has come to demand payment on
the debts incurred by the drinkers at Heidi's bar. He so informs Heidi.

Heidi then demands payment from her alcoholic patrons. But, being
unemployed alcoholics -- they cannot pay back their drinking debts.

Since Heidi cannot fulfill her loan obligations she is forced into

The bar closes and Heidi's 11 employees lose their jobs.

Overnight, DRINKBOND prices drop by 90%.

The collapsed bond asset value destroys the bank's liquidity and prevents
it from issuing new loans, thus freezing credit and economic activity in the

The suppliers of Heidi's bar had granted her generous payment extensions
and had invested their firms' pension funds in the BOND securities.

They find they are now faced with having to write off her bad debt and
with losing over 90% of the presumed value of the bonds.

Her wine supplier also claims bankruptcy, closing the doors on a family
business that had endured for three generations, her beer supplier is
taken over by a competitor, who immediately closes the local plant and lays off
150 workers.

Fortunately though, the bank, the brokerage houses and their respective
executives are saved and bailed out by a multibillion dollar no-strings
cash infusion from the government.

The funds required for this bailout are obtained by new taxes levied on
employed, middle-class, nondrinkers who have never been in Heidi's bar.

Now do you understand derivatives?

Windows vs. Ford

For all of us who feel only the deepest love and affection for the way computers have enhanced our lives, read on.

At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated,

"If Ford had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25 cars that got 1,000 miles to the gallon."

In response to Bill's comments, Ford issued a press release stating:

If Ford had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars with the following characteristics (and I just love this part):

1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash.........twice a day.

2.. Every time they repainted the lines in the road, you would have to buy a new car.

3... Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason. You would have to pull to the side of the road, close all of the windows, shut off the car, restart it, and reopen the windows before you could continue. For some reason you would simply accept this.

4.... Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause your car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to reinstall the engine.

5..... Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was reliable, five times as fast and twice as easy to drive - but would run on only five percent of the roads.

6...... The oil, water temperature, and alternator warning lights would all be replaced by a single "This Car Has Performed An Illegal Operation" warning light.

I love the next one!!!

7....... The airbag system would ask, "Are you sure?" before deploying.

8........ Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key and grabbed hold of the radio antenna.

9......... Every time a new car was introduced car buyers would have to learn how to drive all over again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car.

10.......... You'd have to press the "Start" button to turn the engine off.

PS - I'd like to add that when all else fails, you could call "customer service" in some foreign country and be instructed in some foreign language how to fix your car yourself!!!!

You say you will never forget where you were when
you heard the news On September 11, 2001.
Neither will I.

I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room
with a man who called his wife to say 'Good-Bye.' I
held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the
peace to say, 'Honey, I am not going to make it, but it
is OK..I am ready to go.'

I was with his wife when he called as she fed
breakfast to their children. I held her up as she
tried to understand his words and as she realized
he wasn't coming home that night.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a
woman cried out to Me for help. 'I have been
knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!' I said.
'Of course I will show you the way home - only
believe in Me now.'

I was at the base of the building with the Priest
ministering to the injured and devastated souls.
I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He
heard my voice and answered.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat,
with every prayer. I was with the crew as they were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the
believers there, comforting and assuring them that their
faith has saved them.

I was in Texas , Virginia , California , Michigan , Afghanistan .
I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news.
Did you sense Me?

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew
every name - though not all know Me. Some met Me
for the first time on the 86th floor.

Some sought Me with their last breath.
Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the
smoke and flames; 'Come to Me... this way... take
my hand.' Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me.
But, I was there.

I did not place you in the Tower that day. You
may not know why, but I do.. However, if you were
there in that explosive moment in time, would you have
reached for Me?

Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey
for you . But someday your journey will end. And I
will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may
be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are
'ready to go.'

I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.

During the next 60 seconds, stop whatever you are
doing, and take this opportunity. (Literally it
is only 1 minute.) All you have to do is the

Stop and think and appreciate God's power
in your life, for doing what you know is pleasing to
Him. If you are not ashamed to do this, follow the
instructions. Jesus said, 'If you are ashamed of Me, I will be
ashamed of you before My Father'

If you are not ashamed, copy and send this message...only
if you believe 'Yes, I love my God. He is my
fountain of Life and My Savior. He Keeps me going day and
night. Without Him, I am no one. But with Him, I can do
everything. Christ is my strength.'

I notice patterns a lot. I notice there is a lot of fear from "those other guys", some of them are merely people who grew up to be Democrats, and have never given much thought to why they vote the way they do. But they are extremely fearful of those who appear to be thinking for themselves. They don't want to be told where they can find the truth about anything. They call those who do understand what they're saying degrading names, and they accuse them of vile acts they haven't committed! And they do so because someone "smarter than them" has done the same thing!

Other ones of those "other guys" are people who sincerely believe that the "intellectual elite" are somehow smarter than they are, and so the things they are saying must surely be so. They are the ones that we feel sorry for, because they are "drinking the Kool-Aid. They're the ones who say "I heard it on NPR so I know it just has to be true!" These are the ones we really feel sorry for because they are so ignorant as to believe such a thing! And the scariest thing of all, they are afraid to NOT drink the Kool-Aid!

Then there are the ones who have heard others of their sort saying such things as "it's on [insert here name of one of the mainstream media networks] so I know it just has to be true. They are afraid to investigate for themselves, so they go on believing what they have been told!

Then there are those who say "they wouldn't let that happen to us!" These are the truly naieve who trust that the people who used to tell us everything, who used to guard the country, who used to do investigative reporting to uncover fraud, deceit, and the like, those people would have told us if there were Communists in the government. They would have told us if we were being lied to about something. These are the people who are afraid to believe otherwise, afraid to think about what the consequences might be.

Then there are people who just don't like the United States of America and want to destroy the Constitution upon which this country was founded, and turn this country into a place where every action of every citizen is proscribed by a law or a regulation. They don't understand patriotism and they fear what they don't understand. We should feel sorry for these people as well.

They are all afraid! They fear knowledge. They are sheep who don't know enough to step out of the shallow three inch rivulet, but choose to lay themselves down with their noses in the water and die! Fear!

Okay in this bunch of patterns what else is there that makes them different than you and I? They are fearful. Right, I got that. Okay let's go into this backwards. Why aren't we afraid?

We aren't afraid because we have faith in God and faith in prayer. We have faith that this country will survive.

I noticed something else about people who have faith in God, true faith, not those who think they ought to have faith in God, but still quake with fear, believing God might choose to punish them for one reason or another. Those people who have true faith in God will never be heard wailing at funerals!

I noticed that pattern in people as well. Those people who were weak of faith carried on at funerals as if they were never ever going to see the deceased again! They are ignorant in that they don't realize their loved one is still alive and still very close to them. They don't even want to think about death or dying, and they certainly don't want to know about "heaven". Because they think "dead is dead".

Fear is nothing more than a lack of faith. And you know what? Because we all hang onto our faith, and pray for our country, our freedoms and our Constitution, we will win. The God guys always win. Keep on praying positive: Thank you God for preserving our Nation, our Freedoms and our Constitution.

I've always beens somewhat ahead of my time in my thinking about things. I don't know if I'm psychic (some say I am), or if I'm merely an observer of patterns. After you get to be my age you put the patterns together more rapidly than you did in the past.

For instance, way back in the 50's, I was all gungho on mini skirts ten years before they became the thing to wear. I kept trying to wear mini-skirts to school, and the teachers kept sending me home. Back then the skirts were being worn to about 8 inches from the floor! Yuck! I couldn't stand it. I loved wearing mini skirts & high heels.

I saw a pattern developing in the 90's with regard to the mortgage mess. I was working as a paralegal doing bankruptcies for people, doing divorces, and in the process they were getting appraisals on their houses, so they could remortgage them to split them up or for the bankruptcies. I noticed houses were being way over-valued for their location, and for the normal price of housing in our area. At the time I figured my house might be worth about $60,000 (Fort Wayne has traditionally had very reasonable housing costs) at the very most, but a house exactly like mine (built by the same builder with the same floor plan) was appraised at twice that! And I thought my estimate for my house was high! Time after time, I kept seeing all of this over-valuing going on. I saw people who only earned $20,000 or less a year getting mortgages that required payments per month that would require 50 to 75 percent of their take-home pay! I thought it was irresponsible for them to take out those mortgages, and at the same time I thought it was irresponsible of the banks to give those mortgages.

My father always taught me you shouldn't pay more for your housing per month than you take home in one week. I've always adhered to that policy.

I knew in 1993 that the housing and mortgage industries were going to go belly up. If I'd been a little more prudent with my health, I could be a multi-millionaire by now!

Nevertheless, I said in 1997 that the credit card companies were going to go under. They should have gone under by 2007, and perhaps they did and just didn't know it. At any rate, the credit card industry is going to go under very soon. I don't know of any way for anyone to profit off that, and darn it, I cut up all my cards in 1997.

In 1996 I also observed that whereas one used to be able to have health insurance for one's family for a minimal cost of perhaps 1% of your take home pay, I discovered that for me to buy health insurance would cost me more per month than my mortgage payment!

About 1998 a part of my job was doing due diligence for an attorney who represented a large insurance company that was buying up smaller insurance companies. I went through a lot of records, reading things, absorbing knowledge, and filing it away in my head for later. At some point in that year I came to the conclusion that a lot of things had happened since 1976 when I was on my ex-husband's employer provided insurance.

Back then companies provided health insurance for an employee and his family either for free, or for a nominal amount per week. I think we paid something like $6.00 per week toward the premium. It cost less than $600 for my nearly one week hospitalization when my son was born (I was in labor for 3 days & they wouldn't let me go home once my water broke, and they thought he was jaundiced so they kept us for 6 days.) The insurance paid for everything. I think my husband earned something around $20,000 a year in 1976.

I saw insurance premiums skyrocketing, medical costs skyrocketing, and I wondered why. When I was doing the due diligence investigation I started to have an inkling! The insurance executives were paying themselves outrageous yearly bonuses! Some of them were getting $20 million a year in bonuses!

I reasoned that the doctors and hospital and pharmaceutical companies began observing that the insurance companies were paying for everything and had deep pockets. So they all raised their rates, doctors charged more, hospitals charged more, and pharmaceutical companies said "we can tell them it's the research that costs so much, and we can charge more". Unmitigated GREED!

So when the insurance companies saw the medical providers charging more they saw their bonus checks dwindling in size, so they raised the premiums. More unmitigated greed.

I harkened back to my first job selling greeting cards. I had sat down and figured out I could buy a saddle for my pony if I were to sell 500 boxes of greeting cards. Problem was, there weren't 500 people who would buy the boxes of greeting cards. I had built a pyramid scheme of sorts in my head, and being an eternal optimist I had let my dream mushroom into gigantic proportions. I had also filed that lesson away in my head. I don't know if I ever thought of it before now, but the lesson I learned was that sometimes the mountain can get so high that it will topple over on you. Well, people, the mountain of debt is toppling.

If your mountain is toppling, it's not the end of the world. There's always hope. I have written a couple of books. One of them is Unconscionable Contract: What Credit Card Companies Don't Want You to Know, available at Amazon in paperback or on Kindle, and the other is Winning at Wishing, a primer for the beginning positive thinker, also available in paperback or on Kindle at Amazon. Buy one of each! Or buy more and pass them out to your friends. There is a way out. And it isn't going to come from the government.

Pray positive: Thank you God for getting us through whatever lies ahead, and thank you for preserving our freedoms and the Constitution of the United States of America.

I wrote The Wish Factory: How to Make Wishes Come True some time ago. I then took the story in that book and turned it into a screenplay for an animated feature film. If anyone is interested in looking at that, they can get more information by going to


Obama at first appeared to be incredibly stupid. He was playing on the idea that he had no experience in governing, so he could just pretend he was stupid. He could pretend he was inept. His plan was to bring down the government of the United States, to restructure the government of the United States, to redistribute the wealth of America. He said as much. He revealed his plans near the end of the campaign for 2008 when he told Joe Wurzelbacher that, and Joe countered "Isn't that Socialistic?" That's nearly the first time we saw him hemming and hawing because he had slipped up and didn't have an answer for it.

I'm the last person in the world who would adhere to a Conspiracy Theory. For a long time I would say "They" wouldn't let that happen! I'm as guilty as everyone else. We let complacency over rule common sense. We believed the mainstream media was going to protect us from anything bad. Unfortunately mainstream media appears to be just as Far Left Communist as the rest of them! It's our fault for relying on mainstream media and not keeping up with things. And it's in our power to make the changes necessary to change all that and make sure it doesn't happen again!

I notice patterns. I don't think there's anything such as coincidence, I think there is synchronicity. Way back when that Russian pounded his shoe on the table and demanded to be taken to visit Disneyland, he also said "We will bury you". (A twitter friend always writes it "we will Barry you"). That happened about 1962. "Coincidentally" the Manchurian Candidate was published in 1959. Barack Obama, or whoever the heck he is (whoever heard of a President with an alias!!??) was born in 1961. I think all of those things clicked together. Obama has said "I've wanted to be President since I was five years old". At five years of age he was a student in a Muslim school in Indonesia!!!!!!!!! Who put that idea in his head?!!

Obama's mentors were Communists. Obama's parents were Communists. Obama's grandparents were Communists. Need I say more? Okay, I'm going to say more.
Soros is a Communist. He wants to rule the world. He doesn't want to give his money to the pot to be distributed to everyone else, he wants to control the money of everybody else. I believe Soros wants to be the King of the world, but he wants Obama to be his puppet.

Why else would Obama have to have teleprompters for every speech he makes. Obama believes that he can talk us into anything. After all, at first he was compared to the Great Communicator. I actually compared him to Hitler. He had a hypnotizing voice. But I listen to people and what they say. I look for reason in what they say. I listened to him. He wasn't saying anything! He was talking in circles! When he answered people's questions he talked in circles. Nothing he had contained any substance. He was dropping words into the conversation that people grasped as meaningful, but they were not attached to any words of action!

Now he's becoming frustrated because his words are no longer working. The greatest portion of the population has seen that Obama lies about everything. He just drops words that make us think he means what he says. He has not only attempted to restructure the government, but he has tried to restructure the English language, changing the meanings of words, disguising his true intent behind boggled up phrases that hide his true intent.

Obama does have a plan, he just doesn't want us to know what it is. His plan is to destroy the economy, eliminate everyone's means of making a living. Put the country in chaos, so that he can come to the rescue and implement a Communist regime with him as the Dictator.

Well, Mr. Obama can take his built-in teleprompter ears that don't listen to a thing the country is saying and go back to Mr. Soros and they can bunk together somewhere else.

Here's the secret that will destroy Obama. God loves America. America is God's experiment in Freedom. Freedom is our God-given right, and the Founders knew that. They constructed the Constitution of the United States to protect that freedom. We are free to think what we want. We are free to pray to God. Our Faith in God, and our multiple prayers to God will restore America to her greatness. We must all pray positive: Thank you God for restoring and preserving America's greatness, America's prosperity and the prosperity of the American people. And thank you God for finding Mr. Obama a job for which he is better suited in a country he can love and be proud of (it doesn't have to be America apparently.) Remember when two or more of you pray together the same words, those prayers are always answered. May all your wishes come true.

It is important for everyone to recognize that one of Obama's tools for fooling the American public is "language manipulation", i.e., he changes the structure of sentences, and the meaning of words, to disguise the true intent of his actions. His hope and change, and "restructuring" And he constantly twists words until they have lost their entire meaning.

We need to understand what his objective is. His objective is to manipulate his language so that you will not understand he means to destroy our economy, place the country into an economic crisis, so that he can institute Communism to "save" the country and to make himself our dictator.

You don't believe this? In 2007 Obama said that he regretted that the Supreme Court hadn't been more radical and he described the Court's refusal to take up the issues of redistribution of wealth as a tragedy, And he said that he also "regretted that the Supreme Court didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers there in the Constitution" In other words, he wants to destroy our Constitution and Our Bill of Rights, and Our Constitutional Amendments so that he can institute Communism. Don't say "they" wouldn't let that happen! We are "They" and unless we take steps to get this man and his Communist friends out of power, we WILL be letting this happen!

He talks incessantly, sometimes talking in circles, actually saying nothing! He makes up new expressions to say the same old things. Raising taxes becomes "tax expenditure cuts". By some manipulation of common sense and reason, he is trying to say that it's a tax hike that is half of what they really wanted to make it, so they are "cutting taxes"!!!!!

He manipulates the language so that he can continue to pull the wool over your eyes. Wake up and see what is happening!

Unconscionable Contract Up on Kindle


I watched a story last night where a reporter interviewed people at the beach about "The Fourth of July" and asked them what they were celebrating. A lot of the younger people just said "The Fourth of July", as if they hadn't a clue what it was we were really celebrating. I think it would be a good idea to teach our children what it really means by always referring to the day as Independence Day. We need to teach our children what Independence means to America and to us as her citizens.

Only two out of a couple dozen people actually knew that we celebrate Independence from Great Britain on the Fourth of July. Inasmuch as Britain is one of our allies at this time, just telling them that probably lacks a lot of reason without filling them in about what people came to America to get away from.

Then when we explain that many came to America to have freedom of religion (NOT freedom FROM religion, by the way!) they need to learn that at the time America was a British Colony, and we were expected to have only the religion of the British Monarch at the time. Many of those who came to America did so to worship God the way they believed God should be worshipped, not the way that the British Crown dictated they should worship God. They believed that God had a purpose for America as an outpost of religious freedom, that here God could be worshipped in freedom. I have always believed that America will survive anything because America is God's experiment in freedom.

We declared, once we got here, that we also wanted to be free from taxation without representation! Isn't that a joke on us at the present time!?! How many feel that we have any representation for how we are taxed, and how the money that goes into taxes is spent? We see now that special interests get a great deal of our money, and the special interests are buying our interests from our representatives, i.e., if they put a lot of money into a politician's pocket for whatever reason, they are effectively buying that representative's choices that ought to be for our good, from our representative. Lobbying by special interests should be ceased. If there's special legislation that should be presented to a Federal Congressional Representative or Senator, that information should be presented by a State Representative for individuals only, not for organizations or businesses.

I believe we are going through a test right now with Christians being denied the right to speak of their religion in public. This is truly not what the Founders had in mind when they wrote the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. In celebrating Independence Day we need to teach our children what Independence means for America now as well as what it meant in the 15th century when America was "discovered". We need to understand America was already populated by a people who understood what Independence and Freedom meant, the Native Americans. We need to understand that well-meaning, but ignorant clergy from Europe came and tried to take away the independence of the Native Americans by denying them the right to practice their own religion, by demanding they learn to speak English, and demanding they become "European" in their dress and manners.

Perhaps we should define Independence in another way. To me independence means:

* allowing others to make their own choices about the way they want to live.
* It means teaching children that in America they can CHOOSE to be anything they want to be.
* That they have responsibility, through their choices, for the way their lives turn out.
* That they ARE, as each of us ARE, responsible for where we find ourselves.
* That Government is not responsible for our decisions.
* That Government should not be relied upon for anything.
* That we are not "entitled" to anything.
* That Social Security was not supposed to be an "entitlement" but that it was to be funded from the income of the employee, and supplemented with a payment from the employer, until Congress was allowed to borrow it to use it for something else, and then didn't have the money to repay the fund, thereby turning it into an "entitlement".
* That Medicare was not supposed to be an "entitlement" but that it is paid for by the insurance premiums of those retirees receiving Social Security, until Obama confiscated a goodly portion of that fund with his "Obamacare" insurance package, effectively stealing the money from the seniors who had paid into it.
* That the retirement age can be moved forward to seventy or seventy-two because it is better for older folks to keep working, that statistics show that those who "retire" with nothing to fill their lives are more likely to die early than those who keep on working.
* That Americans are "entitled" to their own freedoms of choice in every area of their lives, and that no one in government should do more than make suggestions but in no case should government make rules and regulations altering the choices Americans make.
* Independence means the right to decide how we spend our money.

Things aren't going so hot with the economy right now. In some areas the true unemployment statistics are nearing 25% if they haven't gotten there already. We are in a depression that may be greater than the "Great" Depression of the 20's and 30's of last century. Housing industry has nearly collapsed. Most of us have houses that we couldn't sell for the amount of the mortgage now on them, or we might just break even if we've been frugal.

We can't count on the government to save us from this, as it just isn't going to happen. The only thing we can do is look to our own survival and the survival of our families. We must work on ways to invent our own jobs, find our own food, plant a garden, buy meat from local farmers and have it butchered at a local butcher. Pack our own freezers with food.

We must make do with what we've got. Buy quality older American made products refurbished or refurbish them ourselves. Stop sending money to other countries for things we can get along without.

Nothing's impossible. There are empty factories around that could be acquired and turned into money-making industries again. It may be time to consider thinking outside the box for such industries, perhaps beginning them with a cooperative of small investors who all have a stake in the business, with experienced older workers who can lead.

It's time for Americans to prove they are still hard-working, intelligent thinking people who can survive.


I'm putting the finishing touches on a new non-fiction book entitled UNCONSCIONABLE CONTRACT: What Credit Card Companies Don't Want You to Know, about how I found myself in trouble with my credit some 14 years ago or so, and couldn't meet my credit card obligations because of health problems. They sued me, and I sued them back. They said, "let's call us even." My premise was that credit card applications are not contracts. They have none of the elements of a contract, and a reasonable person would not agree to the terms if they knew how one-sided they were. One never actually contracts with the credit card companies and they were suing on breach of contract-type complaints. Also included in the book, are ways to protect your credit, how to file bankruptcy, and how to change your prosperity mindset. It should be up on Kindle on July 5, and out in paperback within 6 weeks of this date: 070211. Thanks.

Panetta Ordered the Raid, Not Obama

George W (in some circles) is getting some credit, the below may get out as well
White House Insider: Obama Hesitated Panetta Issued Order to Kill Osama Bin Laden
by">;Ulsterman" target="_blank"Ulsterman in Issues, May 3, 2011"What Valerie Jarrett, and the president, did not know is that Leon Panetta had already initiated a program that reported to him and only him, involving a covert on the ground attack against the compound."
Q: You stated that President Obama was over ruled by military/intelligence officials regarding the decision to send in military specialists into the Osama Bin Laden compound. Was that accurate?
A: I was told in these exact terms, we overruled him. (Obama) I have since followed up and received further details on exactly what that meant, as well as the specifics of how Leon Panetta worked around the presidents persistent hesitation to act. There appears NOT to have been an outright overruling of any specific position by President Obama, simply because there was no specific position from the president to do so. President Obama was, in this case, as in all others, working as an absentee president.
(Notice that Panetta is NOT in the room) This update comes some 24 hours after our longtime Washington D.C. Insider first outlined shocking details of an Obama administration having been over ruled by senior military and intelligence officials leading up to the successful attack against terrorist Osama Bin Laden. What follows is further clarification of Insiders insights surrounding that event.
I was correct in stating there had been a push to invade the compound for several weeks if not months, primarily led by Leon Panetta, Hillary Clinton, Robert Gates, David Petraeus, and Jim Clapper. The primary opposition to this plan originated from Valerie Jarrett, and it was her opposition that was enough to create uncertainty within President Obama. Obama would meet with various components of the pro-invasion faction, almost always with Jarrett present, and then often fail to indicate his position. This situation continued for some time, though the division between Jarrett/Obama and the rest intensified more recently, most notably from Hillary Clinton. She was livid over the presidents failure to act, and her office began a campaign of anonymous leaks to the media indicating such. As for Jarrett, her concern rested on two primary fronts. One, that the military action could fail and harm the presidents already weakened standing with both the American public and the world. Second, that the attack would be viewed as an act of aggression against Muslims, and further destabilize conditions in the Middle East.
Q: What changed the presidents position and enabled the attack against Osama Bin Laden to proceed?
A: Nothing changed with the presidents opinion he continued to avoid having one. Every time military and intelligence officials appeared to make progress in forming a position, Jarrett would intervene and the stalling would begin again. Hillary started the ball really rolling as far as pressuring Obama began, but it was Panetta and Petraeus who ultimately pushed Obama to finally act sort of. Panetta was receiving significant reports from both his direct CIA sources, as well as Petraeus-originating Intel. Petraeus was threatening to act on his own via a bombing attack. Panetta reported back to the president that a bombing of the compound would result in successful killing of Osama Bin Laden, and little risk to American lives. Initially, as he had done before, the president indicated a willingness to act. But once again, Jarrett intervened, convincing the president that innocent Pakistani lives could be lost in such a bombing attack, and Obama would be left attempting to explain Panetta├»¿½s failed policy. Again Obama hesitated this time openly delaying further meetings to discuss the issue with Panetta. A brief meeting was held at this time with other officials, including Secretary Gates and members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but Gates, like Panetta, was unable to push the president to act. It was at this time that Gates indicated to certain Pentagon officials that he may resign earlier than originally indicated he was that frustrated. Both Panetta and Clinton convinced him to stay on and see the operation through.
What happened from there is what was described by me as a masterful manipulation by Leon Panetta. Panetta indicated to Obama that leaks regarding knowledge of Osama Bin Ladens location were certain to get out sooner rather than later, and action must be taken by the administration or the public backlash to the presidents inaction would be significant to the point of political debilitation. It was at that time that Obama stated an on-ground campaign would be far more acceptable to him than a bombing raid. This was intended as a stalling tactic, and it had originated from Jarrett. Such a campaign would take both time, and present a far greater risk of failure. The president had been instructed by Jarrett to inform Mr., Panetta that he would have sole discretion to act against the Osama Bin Laden compound. Jarrett believed this would further delay Panetta from acting, as the responsibility for failure would then fall almost entirely on him. What Valerie Jarrett, and the president, did not know is that Leon Panetta had already initiated a program that reported to him and only him, involving a covert on the ground attack against the compound. Basically, the whole damn operation was already ready to go including the specific team support Intel necessary to engage the enemy within hours of being given notice. Panetta then made plans to proceed with an on-ground assault. This information reached either Hillary Clinton or Robert Gates first (likely via military contacts directly associated with the impending mission) who then informed the other. Those two then met with Panetta, who informed each of them he had been given the authority by the president to proceed with a mission if the opportunity presented itself. Both Gates and Clinton warned Panetta of the implications of that authority namely he was possibly being made into a scapegoat. Panetta admitted that possibility, but felt the opportunity to get Bin Laden outweighed that risk. During that meeting, Hillary Clinton was first to pledge her full support for Panetta, indicating she would defend him if necessary. Similar support was then followed by Gates.. The following day, and with Panettas permission, Clinton met in private with Bill Daley and urged him to get the presidents full and open approval of the Panetta plan. Daley agreed such approval would be of great benefit to the action, and instructed Clinton to delay proceeding until he had secured that approval. Daley contacted Clinton within hours of their meeting indicating Jarrett refused to allow the president to give that approval. Daley then informed Clinton that he too would fully support Panetta in his actions, even if it meant disclosing the president├»¿½s indecision to the American public should that action fail to produce a successful conclusion. Clinton took that message back to Panetta and the CIA director initiated the 48 hour engagement order. At this point, the President of the United States was not informed of the engagement order it did not originate from him, and for several hours after the order had been given and the special ops forces were preparing for action into Pakistan from their position in Afghanistan, Daley successfully kept Obama and Jarrett insulated from that order.
This insulation ended at some point with an abort order that I believe originated from Valerie Jarretts office, and was then followed up by President Obama. This abort order was later explained as a delay due to weather conditions, but the actual conditions at that time would have been acceptable for the mission. A storm system had been in the area earlier, but was no longer an issue. Check the data yourself to confirm. Jarrett, having been caught off guard, was now scrambling to determine who had initiated the plan. She was furious, repeating the acronym CoC and saying it was not being followed. This is where Bill Daley intervened. The particulars of that intervention are not clear to me beyond knowing he did meet with Jarrett in his office and following that meeting, Valerie Jarrett was not seen in the West Wing for some time, and apparently no longer offered up any resistance to the Osama Bin Laden mission. What did follow from there was one or more brief meetings between Bill Daley, Hillary Clinton, a representative from Robert Gates office, a representative from Leon Panettas office, and a representative from Jim Clappers office. I have to assume that these meetings were in essence, detailing the move to proceed with the operation against the Osama Bin Laden compound. I have been told by more than one source that Leon Panetta was directing the operation with both his own CIA operatives, as well as direct contacts with military both entities were reporting to Panetta only at this point, and not the President of the United States. There was not going to be another delay as had happened 24 hour earlier. The operation at this point, was in effect, unknown to President Barack Obama or Valerie Jarrett and it remained that way until AFTER it was already underway. President Obama was literally pulled from a golf outing and escorted back to the White House to be informed of the mission. Upon his arrival there was a briefing held which included Bill Daley, John Brennan, and a high ranking member of the military. When Obama emerged from the briefing, he was described as looking very confused and uncertain. The president was then placed in the situation room where several of the players in this event had already been watching the operation unfold. Another interesting tidbit regarding this is that the Vice President was already up to speed on the operation. A source indicated they believe Hillary Clinton had personally made certain the Vice President was made aware of that days events before the president was. The now famous photo released shows the particulars of that of that room and its occupants. What that photo does not communicate directly is that the military personnel present in that room during the operation unfolding, deferred to either Hillary Clinton or Robert Gates. The presidents role was minimal, including their acknowledging of his presence in the room.
At the conclusion of the mission, after it had been repeatedly confirmed a success, President Obama was once again briefed behind closed doors. The only ones who went in that room besides the president were Bill Daley. John Brennan, and a third individual whose identity remains unknown to me. When leaving this briefing, the president came out of it much more confident. Much more certain of himself. He was also carrying papers in his hand that quite possibly was the address to the nation given later that evening on the Bin Laden mission. The president did not have those papers with him prior to that briefing. The president then returned to the war room, where by this time, Leon Panetta had personally arrived and was receiving congratulations from all who were present.
In my initial communication to you of these events I described what unfolded as a temporary Coup initiated by high ranking intelligence and military officials. I stand by that term. These figures worked around the uncertainty of President Obama and the repeated resistance of Valerie Jarrett. If they had not been willing to do so, I am certain Osama Bin Laden would still be alive today. There will be no punishment to those who acted outside the authority of the presidents office. The president cannot afford to admit such a fact. What will be most interesting from here is to now see what becomes of Valerie Jarrett. One source indicated she is threatening resignation. I find that unlikely given my strong belief she needs the protection afforded her by the Oval Office and its immense powers to delay and eventually terminate investigations back in Chicago, but we shall see.HERE'S THE LINK:
