Are You a Racist?

According to many liberal Democrats, if you criticize President Obama, you must be a racist. Are those numb nuts for real? Do you mean to tell me that I can’t criticize my President without being called a racist? I guess so, according to them!

In addition, besides being called a racist, Republicans are routinely called heartless, cruel, homophobic, sexist, proudly ignorant and inherently violent. Gee, I didn’t know I was such a terrible person by being a Republican? Even a flame-throwing Congressman like Congressional Black Caucus whip Andre Carson said that, “Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now with the Tea Party movement, would love to see you and me hanging from a tree”. Where’s the outrage by the liberal media condemning outbursts like that? But no, no outrage, as the vile messenger of hate was a Democrat and he was black. Democrats never have say they’re sorry. Doesn’t that add up to a racist comment?

Just recently, the tragedy of a young 17 year old boy, Trayvon Martin, was shot by a neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman. When this story hit the news media, all hell broke loose. We had so-called black leaders such as Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Miami), come to Sanford, Florida to stir up trouble by depicting the shooting as a racial incident. They claimed that Zimmerman (a white man) shot the unarmed Trayvon for no apparent reason other than he was a black boy wearing a “hoodie”. The din of the prodding of the Sanford Police Dep’t. to arrest Zimmerman reached a crescendo, and a special prosecutor was appointed to hasten the demand for “their” justice. Most all news reports and the “racial arsonists”, found Zimmerman guilty even before all the evidence was collected and evaluated. Well, as predicted, Zimmerman was finally arrested and remanded to jail. While in jail, some of the facts started to be released. Those facts seemed to back up the claim that Zimmerman was the victim of an attack by Trayvon and he seemed to have shot Trayvon in self-defense (the gun used by Zimmerman was legally registered). Quite ironically, it also was revealed that Zimmerman was part Hispanic who also had a grandparent who was black. In other words, he wasn’t the “lily white” racist murderer he was portrayed to be.

The case is still pending, but it is a case study in a race to judgment by an out-of-control media and racial hustlers like Jackson and Sharpton. It was similar to the Duke Lacrosse case, whereby innocent college kids were vilified and called racists for a crime none of them committed, other than being “white“.

So, when these purveyors of racial disharmony throw out that term “racist” willy-nilly, just tell them to look in the mirror to see who the real racists are.

OBAMA: The gift that keeps giving.

I really have thoughts to express on other subjects but, each new day brings another brilliant statement from Obama that is so stultifyingly stupid that it simply cannot be ignored. And so, sadly, I find that I am in an almost perpetual anti-Obama response mode.

Today’s response was prompted (demanded) by his ludicrous attempt to explain the anatomy of businesses in terms of entrepreneurs who only thought they had conceived and created their businesses but really, they didn’t – it was others who built the roads and bridges that actually made those businesses successful - - - Whaaa-a-a-at??

When I heard him utter that bit of off-the-wall illogic, using his most ‘down-home-lemmy- have-an-amen’ preacher-man tone – in that sing-song cadence he uses to mesmerize the Kool-Aid crowd, I almost wretched. The man is way beyond ludicrous.

What Obama doesn’t know about entrepreneurship is precisely what he doesn’t know about the free-enterprise system; is precisely what he doesn’t know about finance; is precisely what he doesn’t know about work ethic; is precisely what he doesn’t know about employee-management relationships; is precisely what he doesn’t know about how this country works; is precisely what he doesn’t know about our founding, our history; our traditions, our values – or any other damned thing. In fact, Obama is an inept oaf with a motor-mouth and precious little else to recommend him.

Let me back off from that appraisal just a bit - - - he does have a special knack for irritating the living hell out of me. I guess that’s sumthin’.

I believe it is time to wrap up the gift that keeps giving.

Is Obama Going Back to His Community Organizer Roots?

Before Barack Hussein Obama started his political career in the home of admitted domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, he was a rabble-rousing Community Organizer in the City of Chicago. His job in those days was to mobilize the residents in the inner city (a/k/a mostly black people) to demand as many “freebies” as they could “”shake down” from the city and businesses (mainly banks). That’s what a Community Organizer is supposed to do. He was a follower of the late Saul Alinsky, an avowed Marxist and radical around the 60’s and early 70’s. In fact, during his time as a lowly law lecturer at the Univ. of Chicago, he taught classes on the workings of Alinsky and by using his book called, “Rules for Radicals”.

Today, Obama is using the same tactics as what he used during his days as a Community Organizer. The only difference is that today he is the President of the United States and those tactics are not very presidential, to say the least.

Many have said that you can take Obama out of Chicago, but you can’t take Chicago out of Obama. He is using the same political ideas that have been used by the Democrat machine to maintain control of the City of Chicago for many decades, including the present Mayor, Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s former Chief of Staff. It is called the “Chicago Way”.

For his re-election campaign, he has set up his campaign headquarters in the City of Chicago, that is led by the “Red Diaper” baby called, David Axelrod (his parents were avowed Marxists). His chief presidential adviser is Valerie Jarrett, another lefty Marxist from the corrupt City of Chicago.

The tactics he is using in his re-election campaign is right out of the Saul Alinsky playbook. He is trying to demonize his opponent, Mitt Romney, by making outrageous personal charges against him, and which are in fact, lies. Even when his statements are shown to be falsehoods, he doubles down and continues to spout them in his ads. Famous liberal publications such as the Washington Post, Fact Check .Com., and the very liberal N.Y. Times, have all called those anti-Romney Obama charges as falsehoods, and even the Wash. Post fact checker gave those ads “4 Pinocchio’s” as being outright untruths. But, just like a Community Organizer, the end justifies the means and it’s full speed ahead in trying to destroy his opponent.

I have the gut feeling that his blatant false attacks are going to backfire on him, as the general public doesn’t like to see their President get down into the gutter in campaigning like a sleazy Chicago politician. There will be a backlash against Obama, and Romney will be our next President. It can’t come soon enough.

America’s ‘hard-working folks’.

Whenever I hear politicians refer to the ‘hard-working middle class’, my skin begins to itch. This over-used, often mis-used expression just seems to roll off their tongues with such ease.

There are of course, exceptions to every generalization. I’m quite certain that among those categorized as ‘middle class’, there are some folks who avoid hard work every chance they get.

I am equally confident that the same can be said about the ‘hard-working poor’. And for that matter, the same goes for the ‘hard-working rich’. But at least, the ‘hard-working rich’ are able to do their hard work in nicer, more comfortable surroundings than the other ‘hard-working’ groups.

I’ve worked shoulder-to-shoulder with many folks in each of these ‘hard-working’ categories. Been known to do some ‘hard-working’ myself however, have yet to reach the coveted category of, ‘hard-working millionaires’.

But, this is still America, the land of opportunity. And, I keep scanning the news for the obituary notice of a rich uncle who named me in his will to the tune of a few ‘mil’. So far, no luck. However, if that unlikely event should occur, I’d be obliged to join yet another ‘hard-working’ group – ‘the hard-working fortunate’. Seems there is no easy way to avoid belonging to one ‘hard-working’ group or another.

But, back to my original harangue: Politicians who constantly refer to ‘hard-working’ folks. I feel safe in ‘generalizing’ that the great majority of such self-serving jackasses will latch onto any phrase or expression they calculate is likely to ingratiate themselves to whichever audience is in front of them. Again generalizing – usually, the only thing that is hard-working about such blabbering ‘public servants’ is their rhetoric.

I rest my case. Now, back to something less challenging, like maintaining my proficiency at opening a bottle of cheap red wine with a ‘hard-working’ corkscrew.

The “culture of corruption” recently lost one of its adherents with the passing of Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.), the self-styled “King of Pork”. His passing doesn’t alleviate the endemic problem in Wash. D.C., but it points up how pervasive the problem really is. It is one of the reasons why the public, according to recent polls, have Congressional approval poll numbers in the low teens. Besides the health care debacle, the honesty and integrity of the members of Congress was the reason why there was a major overhaul that occurred in the elections of 2010. We must CLEAN the HOUSE and the SENATE of more Democrats, and continue the cleansing on Nov. 6, 2012, starting with our “Liar in Chief“, Barack Hussein Obama!

Remember in 2006, right after the Democrats took control of Congress (they were sworn in and took control in Jan. 2007), Nancy Pelosi said that she was “going to drain the swamp of corruption” that the Republicans left for the Democrats? Well, how did those words turn out? It looks like dike has cracked again and the polluted water is again poring back into the swamp.

The erstwhile Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.), has had his “wrist slapped” because he didn’t report that some corporations paid his way (and other Congressmen) to a conference in the Caribbean. Out of all the charges that have been leveled against him, that was probably the least damning, as the other charges of submitting false income reports to Congress, using Congressional stationery to solicit funds to erect a college wing bearing his name, his abuse of the rent-control laws of the City of New York by taking 4 apartments for his own personal use, etc., etc. Shouldn’t Nancy Pelosi have been shocked at these revelations? Of course not, she only gets shocked when a Republican is accused of malfeasance (real or imagined), like in the case of former Rep. Tom DeLay. In fact, she came to Rangel’s defense by saying that the ethics committee said that he didn’t “violate” House rules. What does ole Charlie have to do, hold up a bank to get condemned by the former Speaker? But, being the good “party soldier” that he is, he requested a leave of absence of the Chairmanship of Ways and Means Committee until the OCE had completed its investigation. He really thinks he has done no wrong, but what the hell, neither does Nancy Pelosi. Finally, after much prodding, the House Ethics Committee did bring charges against Cong. Rangel (it only took three years) and the Congress censured him. But, guess what, he is now running again for re-election and most probably will win another 2-year term in his racially gerrymandered district. What a country?

Last spring, a year ago, the House agreed to investigate 7 members of the House subcommittee on defense spending, including the now deceased Rep. John Murtha, for soliciting clients of the PMA Group (a lobbyist organization - Paul Magliocchetti Associates) for campaign contributions. According to the Seattle Times, in the 2008 defense bill alone, lawmakers gave PMA clients 172 earmarks. Everything about this arrangement smacks of the “one hand washes the other” theory of taking care of friends who take care of friends. Only it happens to be our tax money they are divvying up to buy up campaign contributions from selected clients.

By putting fellow Congressmen in charge of investigating their fellow Congressmen is like putting the fox in charge of the hen house. In the case of Barney Fwank (Frank), it was like putting the fox in charge of the rooster house (if you know what I mean). Nothing worthwhile will come of it and, so far, it hasn’t.

Congressional earmarks, which Obama said he would do away with, but hasn‘t, as any rational person can figure out, is still being used as a fund raising tool by the Congressmen to fill their campaign coffers by directing federal funds to “worthy” constituents. They hope that in return, their largesse will be rewarded by the “worthy” constituents in the form of hefty campaign contributions which all Congressmen need to help them get re-elected. The culture of earmarks, of which there were 10,000 in the FY 2010 spending bills, will not be cancelled by the Congress because they have nothing to fear from the OCE (Office of Congressional Ethics) .

The “Culture of Corruption” lives on, and on, and on.

Sorry, Obama. We apologize.

I’m so sorry, Mr. President. The problems you ‘inherited’ are far worse than you thought. George W. Bush played you dirty by not telling you just how bad things really were. Dick Cheney and Karl Rove could have told you but, they didn’t.

Mother Nature too, conspired to block your genius – she invented Tsunamis, tornadoes and other such bothersomes to foil your beautifully-crafted plans for the destruction of the United States of America. And, there’s more.

Those pesky Republicans won’t accede to your ‘nuanced’, hair-brained schemes that are based upon your vast experience gleaned from your glory days as a Chicago street- thug renowned for your organizational prowess. And worse, the ‘something-for-nothing’ crowd turns out to be insatiable – ‘something-for-nothing’ is never enough for them.

Then, to your disappointment, the Islamo-Lunatics in the Middle East have taken your heart-felt apologies and attempts to suck-up for exactly what they are – a glaring expose’ of your character weakness and intensely yellow cowardice, in the extreme. This is not at all what you expected, We understand your disappointment, Sir.

Adding to your bundle of disappointments certainly must be, the unexpected results of your most benevolent policy of giving away all we have plus, all we could borrow. Who knew that would bring about such disastrous destruction in our economy? Who could have guessed that?

Can there be any doubt that the entire world has conspired against you to thwart your efforts to destroy this country? Can there be any doubt that all your enemies have sipped the TeaParty Kool-Aid being offered by Rush Limbaugh? Don’t these fools know how hard you try, in between rounds of golf and exotic vacations?

And Sir, as if all the foregoing weren’t enough to try your soul, you suffer from the unfair competition for attention by your lard-assed wife who won’t permit you to smoke, eat junk-food or even indulge in homo-sexual dalliances much less, your life-long practice of self-gratification. Worse yet, she commandeers your own personal Air Force One to travel all across the country, to spew her nonsensical utterances to vulnerable school children. Then, she makes more trouble for you by her exorbitant extravagances (I know, that’s redundant) lavished upon her own person –- a legion of highly-paid fawning gay & lesbian attendants, closets full of designer clothes and drawers-full of expensive bling. Then, there are her trips to exotic destinations required to replenish her energies after the exhaustion of doing the Lord’s work. Damn Sir, why can’t she just stay at home and tend the White House garden?

And now . . .and now – to administer the final blow – here comes this racist, soldier- guy, elected to Congress from the notoriously weird state of Florida. This guy is even blacker than the President of the United States, our first black president. He spent 22 years in the United States Army and attained the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He actually commanded soldiers and led them into battle with our enemies and for that, received numerous decorations for valor, including the Bronze Star.

This is just unbearable. This guy has become the media darling and why? He has a direct manner and tells the truth; no bull-shit. He speaks clearly and distinctly. He uses facts and figures instead of high-sounding rhetoric and benign platitudes. How unfair is that? And did we mention that he’s even blacker than the first black president? Plus all this, he hides behind his integrity and honor to make the case against your policies. He doesn’t care how well-intentioned you are – he wants to return this nation to its path of decency in accordance with the Constitution of the United States. And, his vehicle of choice – the free-enterprise system. How unfair is that, I ask you?

With all this negativity going on around you Sir, how can you as a poor, fraudulent professor of Constitutional law, be expected to complete your assigned task of turning this nation into rubble?

We’re sorry, Sir. We apologize.

Now, go to your room.

Virtue and integrity is not the sole provenance of either political party. In fact corruption is endemic to both political parties and to root it out is one of the biggest problems facing us as a free society.

Many politicians campaign on the excesses of corporations and its executives, claiming that they are “ripping off” the public by reaping excessive profits or earning obscene salaries. In some cases, those claims are correct, but when the accusers (the politicians) are scrutinized, they come out just as corrupt as the people they are condemning in the corporate world.

Many career politicians start out their political careers as reformers of the status quo and end up as millionaires many times over, even by earning a modest salary as an elected official. It’s not supposed to be that way, but power has a tendency to corrupt and politicians seem to be one group that is most vulnerable. It happens on all levels of government, local, state and federal, and many times the corruption is overlooked because of politics. Neither party in power wants to “air its dirty linen” by exposing their fellow politicians as being corrupt. It might just open up a “can of worms” that might just touch them in return. Is that being too cynical?

For instance, right here in Palm Beach County, within the past few years, four commissioners have been convicted of crimes and are now or will be serving time in prison. Three happened to be Republicans and one a Democrat. Just recently, arrests have been made in Broward County whereby some Democrats have been charged with corruption. Some cynics say that local politicians should be limited to two terms, one in office and one in prison. That’s a funny line, but a sad observation at the same time.

Corruption will probably be with us till the end of time, but we could and should try to control its tentacles so that it stays the exception rather than the rule. Some people claim that entrenched politicians are more prone to become corrupt because of the power they exert by being prime targets for the graft that is offered to them by special interests wanting special treatment.

Some people claim that “term limits” is one means of reducing the opportunity of politicians being tempted to take bribes or of getting favorable treatment while in office or when they leave office. The argument against instituting term limits is that we already have a remedy – it’s called elections. Yes, in a fantasy world, that’s the most effective way of trying to keep politicians honest, but in the real world, incumbents win 90% of elections and as a result become bolder and more entrenched as a result and the circle of corruption continues on its merry way.

Another area of ridiculousness is in the area of “self-policing” by the politicians themselves. In 2006, when the Democrats won majorities in the House and Senate, Nancy Pelosi said that she would “rule”, as Speaker, over the most honest Congress ever. Has she succeeded in carrying out that pledge? Not quite! The impotent “Ethics Committee” has quite a few names of Congressmen under investigation, but nothing has been done. Some egregious charges had been filed against the late Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.), Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-Ca.), Rep.Charlie Rangel (D-NY), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Ca.), to name just some of the most prominent. Charges have lingered, in some cases, for some time, even years. How come? Do you think politics or cronyism have played a part in this inaction? Of course! Just recently, the Ethics committee found Rep. Charlie Rangel had violated 11 of thirteen rules of the House. He was censured, but he remains a member in the House and is now running for re-election.

The Senate Ethics Committee, over the past couple of years, has also been busy investigating their “own”, such as Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Ct.) and Sen. Kent Conrad (D-ND), both retired from the Senate, for getting “sweetheart” mortgages from their bank, Countrywide Mortgage. After a “thorough” investigation and testimony from people who actually negotiated with these senators to give them the “V.I.P” deals, the Ethics Committee found “insufficient” evidence to punish them. Do you think that the members of the ethics committee might be afflicted with the malady called CRI (Cranial Rectal Inversion)? You make the call.

So yes, a “pox on both political parties” as they go merrily on their self-serving pandering ways to enrich themselves both financially and politically. Maybe we need a “real change” in Washington? The next step is a real cleansing in 2012, starting by getting rid of that fraud in the White House.

“With all due respect . . .”

At this juncture in our nation’s history, all too many public offices both elected and appointed, are populated by unworthy occupants. That my friends, is as gently as I can put it.

Please feel free to substitute the word ‘unworthy’ with ‘inept’, ‘incompetent’, ‘ill- suited’, ‘untrustworthy’, ‘scuzzy’, ‘immoral’, ‘arrogant’, ‘crude’, ‘rude’, ‘sub- standard’, ‘anti-American’, ‘anti-Constitution’, ‘Socialist’, ‘Communist’, ‘Marxist’, ‘Fascist’ – or, any one of dozens of other descriptive terms that might be used to connote nasty, unsavory, undesirable characters, overwhelmingly Democrats - you’ll get no argument from me.

I believe wholeheartedly in the Constitution and the other manifestations of their genius that were bequeathed to us by the Founding Fathers. Further, I believe that those extraordinary men created a form of government that represents the best possible system yet created as a structure by which men might govern themselves fairly, in a civil manner. What they fashioned was a system that permitted the ‘governed’ citizens to run for public office and if elected, to serve in their governing process by expressing their own viewpoints and those of their constituents toward crafting legislation they calculated to be of maximum benefit to the entire citizenry.

That is why I preface my tirades aimed at ‘unworthy’ office-holders with the qualifier, “With all due respect for the office”. I want to distinguish between the office and an office-holder I feel is guilty of malfeasance in the performance of his or her sworn duties. Okay, so sometimes I forget the qualifier. Sue me.

Today, my focus is on a pair that I consider prime examples of the worst of the worst. It just so happens that one is a former President and the other, his former First Lady and currently, Secretary of State. Can you guess the names of these reprobates whom I believe to be among the most unworthy? Correct. Bill & Hillary Clinton.

I firmly believe the damage they have done to our nation is inestimable. When he was President & Degenerate-in-Chief, engaged in doing political damage daily to each of the three branches of the Federal Government, as he was being sexually serviced under the desk in the Oval Office, she was creating enormous disruption throughout the rest of the White House. There have been books written about each of these scourges. The authors for the most part, feeling compelled to expose the lurid details of their directly-related, first-hand experiences gleaned while serving in the White House during the Clinton administrations.

No need to revisit all that which is well-documented by their contemporaries. But, let’s fast-forward to today’s scene. The ‘scourges’ are still with us; they don’t seem to go away. They seem almost lovingly, handed-down from generation to generation.

He (meaning, ‘Slick Willie’), has become the white-haired, darling elder ‘Statesman’ (? ) of the Democrat Party. He is revered by that segment of the ‘Boomer’ generation that canonizes all things ‘Clinton’, from those heady days of his Presidency. At the same time, he is feared by the Obama’s and their string-pullers who realize just how fraught with danger it is to have the Clintons with their greater experience at vicious political skullduggery, so close at hand under the same tent.

She (meaning, “Hag Hillary’), was chosen by Obama to serve as his Secretary of State. The logic behind that appointment escapes me except that it might be explained by the Mafia maxim, “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.”. Yeah, that might be it. In any case, we’ve been stuck on stupid with Hillary grossly mismanaging the affairs of State by doing her utmost to place this nation under the most corrupt organization ever to embody all things anti-Semitic and anti-American – that vile entity on the East River, the United Nations. If she can hand us over to the total control of that gang of international thugs – letting them dictate the ‘what, where, how, when and why’ we might be permitted to live under their thumb, that is what she is all about.

No more disgustingly thick-thighed, thick-ankled female with a demonstrated traitorous nature has been at the helm of our ship of State, since her predecessor, the extremely ugly Madelyn Not-So-Bright.

To reiterate, “That my friends, is as gently as I can put it.- with all due respect.”

Win the Battle, Lose the War

With the unexpected defection of Chief Justice John Roberts, a supposed conservative jurist, the monstrosity called ObamaCare will survive, at least until “President” Mitt Romney takes over on January 20, 2013.

As much as I feel that the Supreme Court made a major mistake in its decision, it will be a welcomed blessing in disguise for the Republicans. I say that because, the enthusiasm that was exhibited by the electorate in 2010, will be revived in 2012, with the main goal of again repealing the ill-conceived “Affordable Care Act” (a misnomer if ever there was one).

The old saying, “win the battle, lose the war” will be what will happen to the arrogant “Liar in Chief”, Barack Hussein Obama. If people thought that 2010 was a fluke (not Sandra, of contraception fame), wait till you see what happens this November.

Obama, in his infinite arrogance (and the members of the Democrat Party also), will have done something Romney has been unable to do up until now, energize the base of Conservative Americans, to get out and vote out that “cancer” that now occupies the White House. People who never voted before, or very rarely, will be out in force in November to cast their vote for sanity in the conduct of our affairs, both domestically and internationally.

Remember in 2009, when the “Anointed One”, said that no person making under $200,000 would be taxed if ObamaCare would be passed, well, now that Obama has changed the rhetoric and the decision of the Supreme Court (the “hack” court that the Democrats would’ve called it if the decision was 5-4 the other way) has occurred, and that ObamaCare can be financed through taxation, the whole ballgame has changed. His empty assurances of not raising taxes, are now history and the losers will be the middle class, which he tells us constantly that he “exclusively” represents. Now, unless Romney is elected and a Republican legislature is also elected, you’ll see the hated I.R.S. being the enforcer of this dastardly act of legislative and executive disdain for the American people, who are against this act by over 60% in most polls. If this doesn’t energize the conservative base, nothing else will.

Yes, Obama might have won the battle, but, in the end, he will have lost the war (the election in November). This decision will motivate an already “sleeping giant” of voters, and they will bring sanity back to the White House by voting out our “Liar in Chief”, Barack Hussein Obama.
