  • Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

    Ronald Reagan

    ---

    When the government's boot is on your throat, whether it is a left boot or a right boot is of no consequence.

    Gary Lloyd

    ---

    We have a system that increasingly taxes and subsidizes nonwork.

    Milton Friedman

    ---

    The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money

    Alexis de Tocqueville

    ---

    Those of us who manage the public dollars will be held to account to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and our government.

    Barack Hussein Obama, 1/20/09

    ---

    My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it.

    Barack Hussein Obama

    ---

    “And the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history”

    Nancy Pelosi, Election Night 2006

    A community organizer can't bitch when communities organize.

Random Cogitations 8/4/2009

  • The Kremlin White House wants YOU to snitch on your neighbors.  Specifically: If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.”
  • As people are beginning to see who B. Hussein Obama REALLY is, he is rapidly losing his popularity amongst those who voted him in (dead voters not included in this group).  Before you know it, Chrissy Mathews may end up losing that thrill up his leg.
  • The latest liberal tactic to come up is to blame organized right wing thugs for disrupting Town Hall meetings held by Democrat Senators and Representatives.  Hmmm.  Did they ever consider the fact that Congress is bringing this upon themselves?
  • Speaking of thugs, Rahm Emanuel’s thug tactics and use of the   “playbook of the Chicago political machine” have been called out by Representative Darrell Issa.  Way to Go Representative Issa – it’s refreshing to see a Republican with testicular fortitude!
  • The White House is linking The Drudge Report to “misinformation” about B. Hussein’s wish for a “single payer health system”. Note to White House:  given the current climate, it’s probably not a good time to go up against Matt Drudge.  Facts are facts, and they eventually will prevail.
  • When those of us making under $250k are taxed, remember B. Hussein’s election pledge to NOT tax those of us under this random thresshold, as well as his recent reiteration of this.
  • Many bloggers are following Jim Demint’s comments regarding the Obamacare proposal, and I’ll pile on as well.  If the government can’t properly administer a $1 Billion “Cash for Clunkers” program, how in HELL will they ever be able to handle a $1 Trillion health care plan? BTW, $1 Trillion is equal to 10 hundred BILLION dollars, to put it into perspective.
  • Michelle Malkin KICKED LIB ASS this week on The View.
  • If you are fortunate enough that your Democrat Rep or Senator will be hosting a Town Hall meeting (mine isn’t), Heritage has 5 questions you may want to ask regarding Obamacare.
  • Being that the Dems have an untouchable majority in both houses of Congress, why are they having to work so hard getting Obamacare passed? (hint: there are Dems within the party that either realize that it is a disaster, or that it is political suicide to vote in favor of it)

CAUTION: More media manipulations ahead

The headline: OBAMA DEMANDS SPEED ON STIMULUS.

Variations of this theme are all over the place, from soundbites to news articles and now to people talking on the streets. 

The great liberal wet dream of a socialist Amerika is within their reach, and the Mainstream Media is doing their best to ensure that it happens. And both the MSM and politicians are playing on the achilles heel of the American public; widespread ignorance of economics, and the PERCEIVED promise of freebies from the Government. Just ask Peggy Joseph.

Have you seen anything this week in the media on anyone appointed to Obama’s economic advisory board? And if so, did any of the names mean anything?

Well, one of those “advisors” is Jeffrey Immelt. Yes, the CEO of General Electric, who has led his company to a plunge in profits since taking over from Jack Welch (40% drop in stock price), is advising The Messiah on how to save the economy.  

But even more chilling is the fact that GE is the parent company to NBC. Immelt’s new position makes George Stephanopoulos’ daily calls with Rahm Emanuel  pale in comparison to this.

In addition to NBC Nightly News, the big deal with this is that CNBC is also under the control of Immelt.  And if you think the propaganda we are hearing NOW is bad, just wait until it pervades one of the top watched business news channels. CNBC – the new MSNBC?

In another development this past week, it’s clear that the Left will forego the 1st Amendment and attempt to stifle Conservative radio.

In an interview this week with Bill Press, Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Michigan said that there needs to be more “balance” in broadcasting, and suggested hearings on this in the Senate. Yes, that great liberal mantra of “fairness” will rear it’s ugly head and gun for the likes of Limbaugh, Savage, Boortz, and anyone else that opposes The Plan.

As Michelle Malkin points out, opposing viewpoints are getting under the skin of these Leftists. It’s not difficult to figure out that they will stop at nothing to stifle opposing viewpoints. Damn the Constitution!

Will there be a need for Radio Free America in our future? Will pirate broadcasters pop up all over the place? Stay tuned – if you are still allowed.

Random Election Thoughts

The election is over and life goes on.  Here are some of my random thoughts:

  • With a Democrat Congress, a Democrat in the White House, and more liberal judges to most likely be named to the Supreme Court, there will be PLENTY of BOHICA‘s to look forward to.
  • The American electorate voted for change, but I don’t think we’ll get change. Rather, we will get more of the same, only worse.
  • The Republicans have no one to blame but themselves for their utterly poor showing in yesterday’s elections.  Nominating a RINO, and forcing true conservatives to pick the lesser of two evils caused them the election. It also didn’t help having so many RINO’s in the Senate as well (Arlen Specter over Pat Toomey? c’mon….)
  • Had Sarah Palin not been chosen as Mac’s running mate, the election would be more like Reagan/Mondale in 1984, only in reverse.
  • If thinking about making a gun purchase, buy or invest now, especially a semi-auto pistol or rifle. (remember the first 2 years of Clinton?)
  • WWRD?
  • Will BHO make Jimmy Carter’s presidency look GOOD?
  • The Dems excelled at PsyOps: Rendell “worrying” about PA, “leaked” internal polls showing poor numbers for BHO, etc. I was snookered as well.
  • When the economy tanks even further under Obama, the excuse will be that he “inherited” the problem from Bush. Wrong: see “Anatomy of a Train Wreck” , Acorn Flowchart, How A Clinton-Era Rule Rewrite Made Subprime Crisis Inevitable , and many, many more.
  • Voters in Northeastern PA are apparently easily impressed (“Joe Biden is from Scranton”)
  • Voters in Northeastern PA will bitch about the economy, yet they’ll re-elect a congressman directly involved in the sub-prime crisis, and one who channeled over $9 million of our tax dollars to his family.
  • It’s OK to vote “a couple of times” in Philadelphia
  • When will Joe Biden and Michelle Obama have their proverbial muzzles removed?
  • It would be great for both states if Philth-adelphia secedes to New Jersey.
  • Liberal reporters will stop at nothing  to discredit the opposition.
  • It’s almost the end of the day, and I have yet to hear anyone mention “Joe The Plumber”.
  • When will Joe Biden resign, and will his son be named to take his place? (h.t. to pstarr999)
  • When will Obama pull out of Iraq, and will he concentrate more forces in Afghanistan?
  • Which cabinet post will Oprah be named to?
  • Will the Republican party ever return to Conservatism?
  • Will the Libertarian party benefit from the Republican party attempting to cross over to the Dark Side? (liberalism)
  • How many more hours before Jack Murtha insults the voters who put him back in office?
  • Will BHO be able to make all liberals happy?
  • He campaigned there, but I STILL haven’t heard how many votes BHO received in Berlin…
  • How high will gas prices go?

And for those of you who are down and out and discouraged, Michelle Malkin suggests what needs to be done:

We stand up for our principles, as we always have — through Democrat administrations and Republican administrations, in bear markets or bull markets, in peacetime and wartime.

We stay positive and focused.

We keep the faith.

We do not apologize for our beliefs. We do not re-brand them, re-form them, or relinquish them. We defend them.

We pay respect to the office of the presidency. We count our blessings and recommit ourselves to our constitutional republic.

We gird our loins, to borrow a phrase from our Vice President-elect.

We lock and load our ideological ammunition.

We fight.”
