Nobody Asked Me , but......! Part 6

  • Did all the women who have gotten tattoos in some very intimate places ever think what those tattoos might look like in 30-40 years when the body starts to sag?
  • Why, if you criticize Pres. Obama, the liberals call you a racist, but if they criticize Herman Cain or Allen West, it is legitimate criticism with no racial overtones?
  • How come the far left liberals rant and rave about ending the death penalty, but never complain about killing babies during a late-term abortion?
  • Why is Eric Holder still Attorney General?
  • How much of the “Stimulus” money payouts went to “pay back” Obama campaign contributors?
  • How come Al Gore bought property on the Pacific coastline after he predicted that the “melting icecaps” would raise sea levels by 20 feet, thereby flooding the coastline?
  • Why is it O.K. to give preferential in-state tuition to illegals, but not to legal American citizens?
  • Why, since Solyndra Corp. went bankrupt, were the stockholders given preference over the taxpayers in distribution of assets in bankruptcy when the taxpayers gave the company a $½ billion loan guarantee? By the way, wasn't the largest stockholder in Solyndra, George Kaiser, a big Obama campaign bundler?
  • Why do we spend billions of dollars each year for energy from foreign countries, when we have the largest reserve of natural gas, oil, and coal in the world right here in our own territory?
  • If George Bush were President now during these perilous economic times, would the liberals (a/k/a Progressives) be claiming the economy was as great as they say it is doing now under Obama?
  • What President was in office when our annual deficit reached $1.5 trillion, when at the beginning of his presidency the total debt was $9.8 trillion and now after almost three years the debt is over $14.5 trillion and counting, and who was president when our credit rating was lowered from AAA for the first time in our history? Could that president be Barack Hussein Obama?
  • Why does President Obama refuse to let the “Voucher School” program continue in Wash. D.C. for 1,500 inner city students who live in public housing, when he sends his own children to a private school instead of enrolling them in the same schools that those 1,500 students must now attend, even though he also lives in public housing, the White House. Would you call that hypocrisy in practice?
  • How can the mainstream media continue to attempt to equate as equals the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters and the the “Tea Party”, when the two groups are polar opposites in how they petition the government to air their grievances? Which one causes civil disruption and police confrontation, and the other assembles peacefully, with no arrests, and cleans up after their rallies. I wonder who is who?

Clear as Night and Day

As an observer I notice vast differences between Conservatives, left leaning Liberals and those labeled Tea Party.

Liberal demonstrations bring out some legitimate participants, but most of the ranks
are filled with what appears to be professionals that travel from one venue to another, where ever their financial backers like George Soros's Moving On orders them. To increase the count, public service union members are enlisted along with the SEIU who outnumber the legitimate protesters. Personal hygiene and grooming doesn't seem to be a priority for many of them. They look so grimy you'd think they were Michael Moore's offspring.

Disorder and disruption is what they bring, like the rabble who stormed the Bastille and reign of terror. After their activities, it takes an army of men and a fleet of sanitation trucks to clean up the mess they leave.

Few are dedicated to a real cause and many are there hired for mischief, to provoke law enforcement and make them look bad. Having missed out on the 60's, it's their 21st century urban Woodstock. The liberal left media loves to champion their cause, to give credibility and sympathy to these low life, unemployed by choice outcasts, who cost time and money for the middle class workers, by disrupting their schedule and preventing access to their place of employment.

In contrast, I never hear of any arrests or profane signs and acts if any, when the Tea Party or Conservatives demonstrate. I separate them, because Tea Party members come from the broad spectrum of American life. Scan the crowd and many could have posed for the cover in the Saturday Evening Post, whereas the, "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrators look like they came from a police line up.

You can bet there is no need to recruit overtime sanitation workers to clean up any mess they might have left, because there is none. The Liberal left Democrats, jealous of Tea Party success are trying to equate these dirt bags to their own type Tea Party. Wrong! They want more government, more regulation, more entitlements, more spending, more taxes and more money redistributed to them from the toils of the productive. Tea Party and most conservatives are a 180 from these demands.

The legitimate protest has been taken over by self-interest organizations, anarchists, stoned slackers, public service unions with endorsements by notorious characters like Hugo Chavez, Mahmud Ahmadinejad, the American Nazi and American Communist parties, overshadowing unscrupulous board rooms.

MORT’s Meanderings

The Thoughts of an Officer and a Gentleman.

As one who has didn’t spend 22 years as a career officer in the U.S. Army or been elected by his constituents to represent them in the U. S. House of Representatives – I can only wonder what goes through Congressman Allen West’s mind when he is confronted with the likes of Lois Frankel, Patrick Murphy, the editorial staff of the SunSentinel, political writer Anthony Man and political cartoonist Chan Lowe - and some of the lunkheads who avail themselves of the Letters-to-the-editor venue as an outlet for their venom? What must he think?

The comments and cartoons that spew forth from the bunch of left-threaded bolt-heads who populate this newsrag are pretty much to be expected. The SunSentinel, the painfully-thin newspaper of record in our real-news-deprived area, is of course just one withering arm of that multi-tentacled monster of Liberalism, the Tribune papers. This group of newsrags proudly carries forth the banner first raised by those pioneering giants of ‘yellow journalism’, Col. McCormick and William Randolph Hearst. Scandal sells; the more the merrier.

Retired LTC. Allen West must think back to his days of strict upbringing by his family and faith; his days in the ROTC as a young patriot; his early years in training as a career Army officer and his years of leading his troops into battle in the Middle East, against this nation’s enemies - and he must ponder how it is that the people back home whom he laid his life on the line to protect, can be so stupidly insensitive to the presence of the bad guys among us and the multitude of problems facing us today, that threaten our freedom and yes, even our very survival as a nation?
When such as the aforementioned stupidly-insensitive-group-think followers of Obama the Pied-Piper of false words and anti-free-enterprise policies swallow such Kool-Aid, it boggles the mind to imagine how our dear country might be saved from such as this ilk?

What Congressman Allen West is thinking in terms of our problems as he is privy to them by virtue of his time spent in the Halls of Congress when it is in session and by his time spent among his constituents between Congressional sessions, is vital information that as responsible citizens, we need to know. He shares this information and his practical and workable solutions at each of the two Town Hall Meetings he conducts in District 22 each month, with a clarity that makes one wonder why other representatives from this area aren’t doing the same? Or, did I just answer my own question? Can anyone reasonably expect this kind of representation from a Lois Frankel? Does anyone really expect to hear such cogent analysis and principled solutions from a Debbie Wasserman Schultz, an Alcee Hastings, a Ted Deutch or any of the other faux representatives of the people in this region? I don’t think so.

Is it Settled Science?

According to that guru of man-made “global warming”, Al Gore (a/k/a Al Bore), man-made global warming is a fact, a slam dunk, beyond a doubt, and “settled science”. Sez who?

The flunky's who follow Al Gore, and his “green energy minions”, have claimed that 99% of the scientific community have concluded that the theory of man-made global warming is a reality and only a small disgruntled group of “global warming deniers” are challenging the consensus of the scientific community. Not so fast Al Gore!

A growing number of scientists say the climate change debate is far from over, and global warming was never a crisis, as Al Gore wanted us to believe. Over 560 certified meteorologists and climate scientists are on a U.S. Compilation of climate cataclysm skeptics - and, 32,000 scientists have signed the “Oregon Petition”, saying that they dispute claims humans are causing climate change. They say the dominant “greenhouse” gas is water vapor, which nature controls via evaporation and precipitation.

Since I was in grade school, I remember hearing in my 2nd grade science class that people breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide (CO2), plants “breathe” in carbon dioxide and “breathe” out oxygen. It seems like Al Gore and his “green” (does the green refer to the “greenbacks” they expect to make by pushing this scam?) friends who are scientists and journalists missed that day in science class. This “evil” gas (CO2), which seems to inundate this planet, are producing plants that are getting bigger and stronger by taking in more CO2, and, I presume, sending out more O2 (oxygen). Could it be that a little extra CO2 in the atmosphere, rather than spelling out “doom and gloom”, is actually a good thing? Could it be that increased CO2 will mean stronger plants and trees, and thus, more and better crops and healthier forests?

The Al Gore sycophants who believe in the theory of global warming, say that all the scientific global warming “deniers” are bought and paid for by the energy companies. Well, let me give you three names of reputable (among many others), real-live climatologists and meteorologists who are “deniers” because of their scientific expertise and not because of any “fantasy” payments by the energy companies. There is Dr. Timothy Ball, environmental consultant and former meteorology professor at the University of Winnipeg; Dr. Richard Lindzen, meteorologist and Alfred P. Sloan professor of meteorology and climatology at M.I.T; and John Coleman, meteorologist and founder of the “Weather Channel”, who has called man-made global warming “the biggest scientific scam in history”. They all pooh-pooh the so-called flawed data of the U.N. sponsored I.P.C.C. who were caught “cooking the books” a few years back in order to prove the bogus theory of man-made global warming.

So when global warming (a/k/a climate change) fanatics try to sell you their “snake oil”, tell them to stop “blowing that false smoke out their butts” as you don't believe it and that you have thousands of scientists and climatologists who will back you up.

So, Al Gore, the only “settled science” on your theory is that it is in your thick head, with nothing to back it up but “junk science”.

Anti-Semitism Is On The Rise

Anti-Semitism is on the rise. Our president and his administration are aiding and abetting it with their solidarity with the Palestinians and tolerance of the intolerance of the Islamic Fascists in the Islamic Brotherhood. Those two organizations, admittedly, are dedicated to the destruction of Israel and our Western Civilization. It is rather puzzling to find that our Jewish Brethren, who have collectively suffered more than any ethnic group when power becomes absolute in the hands of one man, highly support this president and his administration. Their cry of “never again” has become very weak. Aren’t they aware of the power being accumulated by this president? Where is the outcry when the president bypasses Congress and governs by fiat and executive order? He ignores the Iranian protestors but invades Libya without Congressional approval. He usurps the role of our Supreme Court and declares the Defense of Marriage Act “unconstitutional”. Did we
elect a dictator or a president?

Examine the deeds. At one time it was against the law to be a member of the Communist
Party. This president had two, Mark Lloyd and Van Jones, occupy important positions in the White House. No wonder we hear about distribution of wealth and giving the central government all excess of what we need to live. Those are Marxist ideas. In addition to Communists in the White House some of Obama’s other appointees are highly suspect. His list of czars reveals some backgrounds that would have aroused serious questions had they gone through the confirmation process.

Rashad Hussain, whom he appointed as ambassador to the 57 member Organization of
Islam Conference, was a supporter of Sami-Al Arian. That Academic pled guilty and was
convicted of supplying material support to a terrorist organization. Hussain first accused our government of persecution in its prosecution. Then later he denied that he said it, attributing the words to Arian’s daughter. Obama’s White House backed his statement and the first admission was redacted from a report. When Hussain admitted that the first report was the truthful one, the White House allowed its version to stand. There are unanswered questions about Hussain’s connections to the Islamic Brotherhood.

His appointment of Eric Holder as Attorney General was imprudent from the beginning
as Holder was instrumental in the Clinton Pardon of Marc Rich. What makes it further
suspect was the donation given to the Clinton Library by Denise Rich after or before
the pardon. Holder has refused to prosecute the new Black Panther party for voter
intimidation in Philadelphia when it had prima facie evidence on tape. He will prosecute the state of Arizona however for enforcing a federal law against illegal immigration.

Now he is prosecuting Gibson Guitar Co. in Tennessee, a Republican contributor, for
using certain exotic woods. The same woods, by the way, are used with impunity by
other guitar companies who happen to be Democratic supporters. Now Congress is
investigating the Department of Justice for its operation ”fast and furious.”

Our president is certainly providing some juicy controversies for the media to exploit. Lucky for him, most of them are ignoring them.

MORT KUFF's Response to Chan Lowe

Eric Holder is in Trouble

Dear Editor,

Most adults become immune to the lies that politicians tell us. However, some lies are not to be forgiven, and America’s Attorney General has foist a “doozey” upon us.

Eric holder, with apparent concurrence of The White House, helped launch a “sting” in 2009 whereby The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives encouraged the sale of almost 2,000 weapons to the Mexican drug cartel. It was hoped that these guns would be used in the drug war there, be found by the FBI and exposed as "smuggled" from America. This would embarrass the gun lobby here and bring public pressure to bear to curtail gun sales, a goal of this administration.

Unfortunately for the genii in Mr. Holder’s Justice Department, two Americans were killed by these guns as well as 200 Mexicans, which prompted investigations led by Senator Charles Grassley and Congressman Darrel Issa. The scheme, dubbed “Fast and Furious”, was initiated in 2009, the killings occurred in 2010, at which point The White House and Justice began what must be termed a cover up. As expected, the mainstream media abetted the administration’s cause by giving this matter little or no coverage.

Attorney General Holder is directly responsible for ATF but has professed ignorance of the sting. In May 2011 he testified under oath before congress and indicated his learning of Fast and Furious “within recent weeks”. Unfortunately for him, email records obtained by CBS News contravene his testimony indicating a much earlier knowledge of the scheme. It seems Mr. Holder was as ignorant of the sting as was Richard Nixon of his White house tapes. For this lie Eric Holder deserves to be indicted; he is not above the law.

The real question, then, is what Eric Holder’s boss, President Obama, knew of these matters and when. The administration Is doing all it can to keep the media at bay and the media, which swoons for Obama, has reciprocated with minimal coverage. What America needs now is a modern day Woodward-Bernstein to flush out the facts.

MORT’s Meanderings

There is a fungus among us.

This is meant especially for those of us residing in S. E. Florida who were born under the Star of David. But, since it is my sincere belief that everyone is entitled to my opinion - - all y’all others born under the sky full of stars can listen up, too.

We are surrounded by pretenders: Socialists, pretending to be ‘Progressives’. Democrats, pretending to be bi-partisan. Mainstream media, pretending to be unbiased. News reporters, pretending to be journalists. Liberals pretending to be for the ‘middle class’. A radical Muslim, pretending to be President; an anti-military slacker, pretending to be Commander-in-Chief. A squadron of appointed Czars - thick-skulled, thin-skinned theorists from the nether world of
academia, pretending to be knowledgeable about things with which they haven’t had a scintilla of experience. A First Lady, who truly believes she is the last word in style and substance and therefore, pretends she has every right to spend tax-payer’s money on her own personal whims. Democrat leadership in the Congress, who pretend that they have any other motivation for their shenanigans, than freely taxing & spending and of course, sabotaging the two-party system so they can remain in control, forever. Oh, I could go on but, you get the picture.

Okay, here’s my rant of the day:

RON KLEIN the former Congressman from District 22 and fake Jew, hasn’t given up making a fool of himself by sticking his nose up Obama’s rear end. He recently hosted a ‘closed’ event with fifteen local rabbis enlisted to soak up pretend-VP Joe Biden’s message carried directly from pretend-Fuhrer-Obama. Let us never forget KLEIN the coward, who so viciously attacked then-candidate Allen West and his family by making public, West’s personal information. This fake Jew is genuinely despicable.

Let’s never forget ROBERT WEXLER the former Congressman from District 19 and fake Jew, who made a mockery of his loyal but clueless constituents who had voted for him time and again, simply because he was a member of the tribe. He has unapologetically gone over to the side of the Palestinians against the closest ally of the USA, the sovereign State of Israel. No one ever mis-represented his constituents more blatantly than this fake Jew.

Let’s never forget Congressman TED DEUTCH, the fake Jew from Florida’s District 19 - another handsome member of the tribe, whose only qualification for office is that he is a member of the tribe. His record of representing his constituents in Dist 19 that is heavily populated with retired Jews who ‘vote for their own’, is precisely what you would expect from someone who was hand-picked by his predecessor, the pro-Palestinian Wexler. Prior to being sworn in to represent all the citizens of Dist. 19, Teddy Baby proudly swore to support Barack Obama’s policies, 100%. How’s that for bi-partisanship? Ya gotta love the guy. Someday, he’ll make a great ex-Congressman. The sooner the better.

Let’s never forget BUTTHEAD BURT AARONSON the perennial PBCounty Commissioner and fake Jew, who has for years, used his elected office as a trading post to bargain such goodies as the installation of traffic lights at dangerous intersections, for heavily-obscured benefits for himself, his family and political cronies.

Let’s never forget the always delightful DEBBIE WHATEVAH SCHMUTZ (Schultz) the fake Jew-ess, who devotes 100% of her time serving those who elected her to the U. S. House of Representatives, while devoting the other 100% of her time to her duties as Chairwoman of the DNC (Democrat National Committee). How do she do dat? Somebody is getting short shrift – could it be the voters of Florida’s District 20 or is it the Dem voters in the public at large. Take your choice.

Let me axx you a question? Are these faking Jews worthy of the faith we’ve placed in them?

I don’t think so. Please don’t misunderstand - It ain’t just business with me; it’s personal.

Does Competition Improve Schools?

One of the principles of our free enterprise system is competition - it is one of the main reasons why the U.S.A. is the economic powerhouse of the world (at least it was before Obama was elected).

Since it has worked so well in business, why shouldn't it be the driving force in improving our schools, which seem to have been flat lining, or declining, for the past few decades?

Since the 1970's, attempts at getting competition in our educational system has faced fierce opposition from the teachers unions and their political allies, the Democrats. It seems the teachers unions seem to think that Charter schools and Voucher schools are a threat to the monopoly of government-run schools.

The “one size fits all” idea that the federal government knows best when it comes to educating our children, just doesn't hack it and the poor results seem to back that up. SAT scores have been static or have fallen, even after all of the money that has been pumped into the system. Something is fundamentally wrong for us to be in this sorry predicament. Maybe it's because we don't have competition in our education system, because you are dealing with a monopolistic government-run system that is not performing up to expectations.

Look what happened in Wash. D.C., former Superintendent Michelle Rhee, was hired to run and fix-up one of the worst school systems in the country. She made a hands-on evaluation and decided to close failing schools, fired incompetent teachers, and turned the system around for the better. Included in Wash. D.C., was a voucher plan whereby students could attend a private school of their choice (just like Pres. Obama could do and does as a resident of public housing in Wash. D.C.). The plan only affected 1,500 students, but the results were better than expected, until the teacher's union couldn't stand the success of this program because it it showed positive results as opposed to the poor to mediocre performance of the public schools. After the unions went all out by lobbying the Congress (the Wash. D.C. Schools are financed by the U.S. Congress), the Congress, at that time controlled by the Democrats, voted to “defund” the voucher program, thereby sending 1,500 students back to the poor, less desirable Wash. D.C. public schools. What a compassionate thing to do? Not only was the union “successful” in getting the voucher program defunded, they also worked to get get Mayor Fendy defeated at the polls. In addition, when the pro-voucher Mayor was defeated, Michelle Rhee resigned. What a disgrace for the unions and the Democrat congressmen who cut off the funding for the voucher program, but also for the “stupid” voters who voted out of office a good education mayor. It looks like they cut off their nose to spite their face.

So, just like in business, the public schools need some competition to shake up the “status quo”. The bureaucracy of the public schools needs the competition to force them to innovate and to provide an educational environment that will keep students in their schools. With competition, the public schools must perform better or the students , who hunger to get a good education, will go elsewhere. If the public schools were doing their job properly, there would be no need for Charter or Voucher schools.

Let's bring competition to the public schools, like what is done in business, and see them flourish once again.

Vote for a Living?

I came across a quote from some clever person who stated; “The problems we face today are there because the people who “work” for a living are outnumbered by those who “vote” for a living”. Think about that for a moment, why do most federal and state government employees vote for the Democrats at election time? Since Democrats want to expand the size of government thereby creating more government jobs, it is in their self-interest to vote for the politicians from the party who will continue to spend taxpayer money to help them in their jobs. As a result, government and unions are tied at the hip with the Democrat Party - thereby giving the Democrats a steady supply of campaign workers and more than ample supply of union campaign funds (Upwards of 95% of their political campaign funds go to the Democrats).

This unholy alliance between the government employee unions and elected government officials (mostly Democrats) has caused many cities and states to be on the verge of bankruptcy, if not already there at the present time. The “real” employers, we the taxpayers, have practically no say in who (also what, when, or where) gets hired and compensated in a government job. Look around the country today, what cities and states are in financial jeopardy? Chances are they are all run by Democrats who have generally given government workers excessive amounts of pay and benefits which have, as a result, pushed the cities and states to the brink of financial disaster and ruin.

When the regular taxpayers and privately employed citizens get enough of the “sweetheart” arrangement between government and labor and vote in a Republican governor or mayor, that is when the trouble arises when these newly elected reformers try to act financially responsible and try to rein in these bloated contracts entered into by the previous self-serving politicians and union leaders.

Look at what has happened over the past year. Republican governors in Wisconsin, Ohio, New Jersey, Virginia, and even the newly elected Democrat governor of New York, have all come under intense fire by trying to do the right thing financially to get their cities and states back from the brink. The demagoguery and vilification of these newly elected leaders has been merciless, but already the “cuts” presented and passed by these victors in last Novembers elections, are already paying dividends for these officials, and the cities and states they represent.

The “Nanny State” which the Democrats believe in, must be reined in in order for us , as a country, to continue to be the pre-eminent country in the world. The entitlement mentality on the part of those in power, espousing their policy of “income redistribution” and trying to emulate the European socialist countries who are on the cusp of going over the financial cliff, must not be allowed to be voted back into office.

Yes, the people who “work” for a living are fed up and “won't take it anymore”, and the people who “vote” for a living are finally meeting their match, mainly from the likes of the Tea Party. Let's hope this energy carries over to the elections of 2012.
