“I ONLY LOOK THIS WAY”


Have you reached the point of being tired of political types treating you like you’re stupid? I am hoping you are, and ready to get up off our apathy and start speaking up (but NOT like the ‘Occupiers’).

In the last couple of weeks I find myself screaming at the pundits, their spokesmen, and the professional pot stirrers, “Hey, I only look this way.” (For those of you needing an explanation, “I only look that stupid”, or, “I am not as stupid as I look.”). For example, there is a man running for District Attorney for the City of Los Angeles claiming that electing him will enable the children to have a fair chance. Sound familiar?

Another one is part of a campaign to raise tax dollars to fight cancer. One of the supposed doctors claim that this bill will keep 200,000 children from smoking cigarettes. And on they go making promises that sound very vague, without any detail, after the pattern of candidate Obama in 2008. Make a lot of promises, keep the promises extremely vague letting the electorate to decide in their own minds what you stand for and will carry out. That way when you fail, you just remind them that you did not make those exact promises, change the mantra, and continue campaigning.

Now you understand the primary reason for the title of this blog. I find myself constantly asking, “What did you say?” These politicians have learned that most of the electorate will NOT hold their feet to the fire about their promises. As a result, they have become so bold as to make statements and promises knowing that you won’t be challenged unless you go on O’Reilly.

Will you join me in putting these politicians’ feet to the fire by challenging them when we can? Attend the rallies. Write the letters. Share blogs like this and let us do all we can to educate the electorate around us making this November the most active in history.

FREE STUFF


I AM PUBLISHING THIS EMAIL THAT I RECEIVED TODAY TO ALL THE “THINKERS” . IT REFLECTS THE FEELINGS OF A LOT OF PEOPLE.

I have never heard this said as simply or as well. Class war at its best.

The folks who are getting the free stuff don’t like the folks who are paying for the free stuff, because the folks who are paying for the free stuff can no longer afford to pay for both the free stuff and their own stuff.

And, the folks who are paying for the free stuff want the free stuff to stop.

And the folks who are getting the free stuff want even more free stuff on top of the free stuff they are already getting!

Now… the people who are forcing the people who pay for the free stuff have told the people who are RECEIVING the free stuff that the people who are PAYING for the free stuff are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

So… the people who are GETTING the free stuff have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free stuff by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff and giving them the free stuff in the first place.

We have let the free stuff giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting free stuff than paying for the free stuff.

Now understand this. All great democracies have committed financial suicide somewhere between 200 and 250 years after being founded. The reason?

The voters figured out they could vote themselves money from the treasury by electing people who promised to give them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.

The United States officially became a Republic in 1776, 236 years ago. The number of people now getting free stuff outnumbers the people paying for the free stuff. We have one chance to change that in 2012. Failure to change that spells the end of the United States as we know it.

A Nation of Sheep Breeds a Government of Wolves!

ELECTION 2012 IS COMING

Drug Free: Mandatory Drug Screening before Welfare!

NO freebies to: Non-Citizens!

OPEN LETTER TO ALL VENTURE CAPITAL COMPANIES IN THE UNITED STATES


Because the President Obama Administration, along with the Democratic Party and their willing media partners, have labeled all of you as “VULTURE” Capitalist, and because they have demonized what you do, lied about how you function and dehumanized the profession as being thieves taking from the poor and giving it to the rich, I propose the following:

  • Immediately stop all work with companies you are trying to save who are in States Governed by Democrats, especially those that have joined the bandwagon to bad-mouth all of you.
  • Go immediately into States governed by conservatives who appreciate all the companies you save, and therefore, all the jobs that are associated with those companies.
  • Look into Canada. They will welcome you with open arms.
  • Look into other countries who are going bankrupt. They will appreciate all the taxes you generate when you save companies and make the prosper.
  • As you leave each Democrat State, let the government know that they can be expecting more unemployment because you are taking your own money to States that are governed by those that understand what you do, and what you have to do in certain cases to save a company the their employees. Also let them know that because you are leaving, their tax revenues will drop dramatically.
  • Let the employees of those companies you are leaving to the Democratic Government that President Obama and the entire Democratic party feels their pain as they stand in line for unemployment.

That should make everyone happy because the Democratic governance can be free of you and your “vulture capitalism”. It will give them an opportunity to lie about something else.

United States Constitution; The Presidency 101


Printed from: http://www.patriotprintshoppe.com/Const.html

Article. II.

Section. 1.

The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows

Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.

The Electors shall meet in their respective States, and vote by Ballot for two Persons, of whom one at least shall not be an Inhabitant of the same State with themselves. And they shall make a List of all the Persons voted for, and of the Number of Votes for each; which List they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the Seat of the Government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate. The President of the Senate shall, in the Presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the Certificates, and the Votes shall then be counted. The Person having the greatest Number of Votes shall be the President, if such Number be a Majority of the whole Number of Electors appointed; and if there be more than one who have such Majority, and have an equal Number of Votes, then the House of Representatives shall immediately chuse by Ballot one of them for President; and if no Person have a Majority, then from the five highest on the List the said House shall in like Manner chuse the President. But in chusing the President, the Votes shall be taken by States, the Representation from each State having one Vote; A quorum for this Purpose shall consist of a Member or Members from two thirds of the States, and a Majority of all the States shall be necessary to a Choice. In every Case, after the Choice of the President, the Person having the greatest Number of Votes of the Electors shall be the Vice President. But if there should remain two or more who have equal Votes, the Senate shall chuse from them by Ballot the Vice President.

The Congress may determine the Time of chusing the Electors, and the Day on which they shall give their Votes; which Day shall be the same throughout the United States.

No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

In Case of the Removal of the President from Office, or of his Death, Resignation, or Inability to discharge the Powers and Duties of the said Office, the Same shall devolve on the VicePresident, and the Congress may by Law provide for the Case of Removal, Death, Resignation or Inability, both of the President and Vice President, declaring what Officer shall then act as President, and such Officer shall act accordingly, until the Disability be removed, or a President shall be elected.

*****************************************************************************************************************

In any of what you read, did you see any part that says the President of the United States has the responsibility, or the authority, to:

  • Create jobs in America?
  • Make sure every citizen has an equal opportunity to succeed?
  • Ensure every citizen has the same success?
  • Define what success is ion America?
  • To execute judgment on free market companies that they are making too much money?
  • To declare that profit is bad?
  • To declare who is a good business person versus a bad business person?
  • To make sure all wealth is evenly distributed?

Did you read anything in the Constitution that lines up with anything President Obama has said about how he perceived the position of Presidency? This is the same man, and his vast media team, that has painted a picture of Mitt Romney;

  • As a vicious Venture Capitalist who goes about taking from the poor and giving it to his rich buddies.
  • According to Vice President Bidden Mitt Romney is “unqualified” to be President. “Mr. Vice President. How qualified was Mr. Obama before he was elected?”
  • Because he put his dog (in a kennel)on the roof of their car while on a trip.
  • Because he MIGHT have bullied someone in high school.Because their interpretation of Governor Romney’s tenure in Massachusetts was different from what the Romney Campaign is saying.

This is becoming the most ridiculous Presidential campaign in history. Let’s end the madness.

ECONOMICS 101


Profit is good. Loss is bad. Profit enables profitable companies to hire more employees. Profitable companies pay many taxes. The more employees on the payroll, they more Federal and States Taxes, the more Sales taxes and the more other taxes the government has hung around our necks. Profit means more other companies can hire more people and pay more taxes.

Loss means layoffs and unemployment. No taxes paid because there is no income generated. Loss makes people grumpy and some to break the law just to be able to eat. Loss does not make momma happy, and if momma is not happy, ain’t nobody happy.

Venture Capital companies take their own money, and sometimes the money of investors, and take a big risk by investing in companies that are doing good, but could do better, and struggling companies that could be profitable. They know by experience that the bigger the risk, the possibility of a greater return on that investment exists. They lose THEIR money because the risk was too great, oh well. They took the chance and it didn’t pay off. That is why more people are NOT in the Venture Capital business.

They succeed in their risk; they get a return on that investment. That is fair. They risked their own money; they should be able to enjoy the benefits of that investment. They also pay State income taxes on that profit AS WELL AS Capital Gains Taxes. Profit good. Loss is bad.

The Venture Capital Company sometimes makes changes in the company they invest in, and that can mean staff is laid off, or let go. That happens every time any company has to do to become more profitable. It’s never a person thing, but a business decision to keep the company going and most of the employees keeping their employment. It is never pleasant, and yes, it can make for some bad feelings. I have been laid off more than once. It is not fun.

When government thinks it knows how to run business better than the business people, regulators are created to make business very difficult. That can also cause people to lose their jobs.

President Obama claims he has a better way than all business people. He is so smart, and has so much experience in running multimillion-dollar business, that he says he will make everything fair. Of course, no one bothers to ask him to define “fair”, just like no one asked him to define “change you can believe in” from the last election. President Obama says he wants to make sure that everyone has a “fair shot.” Again, no one has asked him to define what he means.

President Obama says that Mitt Romney is a bad man because he closed down a steel company and took all the profits of the company for himself. The past president of that steel company says that is not true. Bain Capital, the Venture Capital Company that Mitt Romney once run, actually closed the doors of one of the five companies in that steel company in order for the other four plants could stay open and thrive (that means they made profit and those employees kept their jobs, income and benefits). Why is that bad Mr. Obama?

Let us summarize. Profit is good because it enables the business owner to hire, train and develop employees who earn an income and benefits. When companies prosper, taxes are paid. When Americans are working taxes are paid. When businesses have to shut down because they can’t afford to stay in business because the government has made it too difficult to stay in business and make a profit, employees lose their jobs, have no income and no one is paying any taxes to keep the government running.

Telling lies about your political opponent is really ugly. President Obama does not like Mitt Romney’s experience, but it is far more leadership experience than he had going into office.

Another Cultural War Alert


They are at it again. Now it is Vice President Biden saying that his parents could dream great things for their children just like a rich man. According to the Vice President and other Left Wing spokes people;

  • Conservatives hate poor people.
  • Conservatives want to make the poor, poorer and the rich, richer.
  • Conservatives want to take from what the poor have and give it to the rich.
  • Conservatives do not care about the poor and only care about the rich.

These statements are ridiculous, unless you are a “cool-aid” drinker from the Left. No person who can actually think for themselves would put any value to such crazy claims. Understanding that they are saying such things to further gin up their voting base, and “stir the pot” so that more hatred is produced, and more envy.

I am very upset that those in the media who claim to be fair and balanced would ask a couple of very important follow-up questions:

  • “Mr. Biden. When you talk about the rich, what rich people are you talking about?
    • How about the Wall Street tycoons who gave you money in 2008 helping get you and President Obama elected?
    • How about professional athletes?
    • How about Hollywood?
    • How about all the Democrat Senators and Congress People who are millionaires and constantly vote themselves exclusions from the tax laws the rest of America is supposed to abide by?
    • How about all the foreign investors that give to the Super Packs?”

Who are the rich people the Left is demonizing? I would like to see one interviewer have the courage to actually ask that question and not let them go until they answer.

Have you also noticed that President Obama has done a great job NOT creating new wealthy people, except of course those contractors The President’s head of the GSA have awarded.

Do they really want riots in the street? Do they really want to create such hatred for 30% of our population who are actually employing those the Left are ginning up to hate? The Left has been very successful at creating their primary voting base; the 50% of Americans and illegals, who never pay any Federal Income Tax. According to the Left, the rest of us want to take away what they have and give it to ourselves.

No, I do not want anything they have. Instead, I support the following ideas;

  • All those that are on any form of Welfare immediate become employees of the State they live in. Take what they get in benefits divide by Minimum Wage. They owe those hours to the State.
  • Put them to work cleaning up the graffiti, clearing sewage lines, cutting firebreaks in the hills and mountains, keeping skid row clean, clean along the rail road tracks and all the other jobs that are not getting done now.
  • Treat them like any State employee. Screw up, and you are fired. No more freebies.

Let me know what you think.

STIRRING THE POT CREATES MORE ANGER AND HATRED


Professional Pot Stirrers (those people they claim to be a spokesperson for) succeed because they keep their “victims” focused on the wrongs of the past. Any psychologist will tell you that mental and emotional health is derived from not focusing on the past but looking toward to the future. Letting go of the past is the primary way of going forward in life.

These Professional Pot Stirrers keep their assumed followers focused on the wrongs done to them in the past. The natural anger associated with such memories get stronger and stronger which makes these people less productive and more dependent on the assumed leader (The Professional Pot Stirrer). The final result is the original goal of the Professional Pot Stirrer; Create so much anger and hatred that the people get violent. Death, disaster and chaos are the only result.

The Political Left is a master at creating Bills that are aimed at “Hate Crimes”, “Hate Speech”, and “Special Rights for Minorities”. These bills are designed to stir the pot, separate the citizenry more and more, while pitting them against each other. Their Bills are written in such a way that any disagreement with the Bill labels you as a person of hate and out of touch with suffering people. Your disagreement is also labeled as hate speech, and you are castigated as a bigot.

If we do not stop this now, we will have laws like Canada that will imprison you if you so much as speak in public your disagreement with a group (like several Pastors have learned in Canada for speaking out against homosexuality. Just using that word in Canada will land you in jail under hate speech).

We cannot wait any longer. Every election in all levels of government across America is more critical than ever before. We must encourage conservatives to get out and vote, while spending time with the Independents helping them to see the truth. Prayer works, however, God also want us to put “legs” to our prayers and go out in His strength, love and righteousness.
