The state of our Union



For the past few years, during the Obama administration for sure, governments, federal to local have been violating the people's rights as declared by the Constitution.  This trend should be very disturbing to us all.  Life in America is becoming more like life in the old Soviet Union and less like our founders envisioned and prepared for us and future generations.  This is true both economically and liberty wise.  Kicking people out of their homes is just one of the latest violations by a government agency.  We have witnessed warrant-less surveillance, forced purchase of insurance, armed intrusions on businesses, denial of free speech, confiscation of property, obstruction to religious practices, and many more violations of our freedom and liberty.  We need to cleans our governments of those who put personal ambition above that of serving the people and upholding the basics of our Constitution.  We must resist those who demand the replacement of our constitutional rights with the edicts of globalists, Marxists, Socialists, Islamists, and others that disrespect our Constitution.  The time for non-involvement is long gone.  It is time to embrace the spirit of our founders and fight for the things that so many have fought and some died for, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
I urge all to take charge of our destiny.   Volunteer for work on/with local and state executive committees, help vet new candidates, select the right ones, work hard to elect true public servants, and stay involved with those you elected to office.

What is missing



Regardless what the group is called conservatives have missed the most important aspect of campaigning.  A political campaign is in fact a sales pitch.  It must be delivered using basic salesmanship.  First it is important to get the prospect’s (voter) attention, and then get him/her interested in the pitch.  The third and for sure the most important part is convince the prospect of the benefits to him/her of agreeing with what is being said.   The Democrats have dangled bright shiny beads and sparkling trinkets in front of the voters; “free stuff”. Facts, logic, and reason do not evoke any emotional response, except perhaps resentment.  That is not the emotion that will get people to agree with you.  After showing and convincing the voter that your ideas are of great benefit to him/her, the next step is to put the voter into comfortable, happy, and safe place.  This is done by describing the pleasant situation that will be the result of agreeing with what you are “pitching”.  The finally of any speech must be a call to action.  If the first four parts are done correctly the audience is ripe to follow a suggestion.  Now is the time to “ask for the order”; finalize the sales.  Ask for their support with specific suggestions.  Include how they will benefit through their support.  Present precinct walking and phone banking as a fun social event.  If you are asking for donations, show how and where they are to be used and how important it is to raise whatever amount you need to raise.

It never ceases to amaze me how terrible our candidates are at the art of salesmanship.  I attended several of Sarah Palin’s rallies. She really had as all in the palm of her hand but there was no effective call to action at the end.  The people left there eager to do something, she should have given us better and specific direction.

Republican candidates will continue to come in second best if they do not check out Dale Carnegie’s salesmanship courses.  Let go of all previous conceptions about campaigning.  Realize you are selling something and don’t be shy to use blatant sales tactics.  It might feel strange at first as it did to me.  But once I took this approach seriously, it worked wonders for me.  I increased my sales volume tenfold. I went from $20K to $200K a month after applying these principles.

Self Reliance Lost





Entrepreneur-ism, Self Reliance, and Self betterment have been replaced by chasing bright shiny things, free stuff, and submission to socialist powers.  This election the American people have rejected fact, logic, and reason for lies, fairy tales, and dammed lies.  We have allowed ourselves to be bamboozled by people who have lied to us in the past (“I have not had sex with that woman”), broken promises they made (I will cut the daffiest in half – reduce healthcare costs – strengthen relations with our allies), and destroyed our economy (high unemployment – ruined the nation’s credit rating) for now and the future.  We picked a president that watched four Americans be butchered and did nothing to stop it, gave tax payers and borrowed money to contributors for failed businesses, and declared his intentions to bankrupt an industry supplying most of America’s energy sources.

The psyche of the American public has done a 180.  We do not consider the government as an extension of ourselves anymore but as a separate entity that should rule over and control our lives.  A woman in New Jersey was interviewed on television last week.  She complained that there is no power and now she has to walk up several flights of stairs to get to her apartment.  She complained that the government is not there to help her.  She whined that there is debris in the hall way and stairwell.  She can’t get to work so she just sits and waits for help.  It never occurred to her to pick up a broom and clean the debris from the apartment herself.  She is wallowing in self pity and the thought of helping herself never entered her mind.

The fault for this turn of events lies with the voting public and the leaders of the Republican Party, the public for allowing to be fooled and the Republican Party for orchestrating a woefully lame campaign.  There were so many opportunities to turn the tide and deliver a Romney victory and the Republicans wasted every one of them.   One would think that they learned something from the previous presidential election.  Perhaps the reason is that both political parties are cut from the same cloth.  Perhaps the Republican Party is not so much a “small government” party as they claim. 

Perhaps they did not fight the Democrats as hard as they could have because their goals are not that different from the Democrats.  Both sides are applauding the “ending of the war in Iraq” and preparations to “end it” in Afghanistan.  Picking up one’s marbles and going home is not a good end.  Winning the war is the only acceptable way to end a war, or all the sacrifices made are in vain.  Killing one leader of the enemy does not mean victory.  No matter how many “victory laps Obama takes” our enemies are well, alive, growing stronger, a bigger threat, and danger than ever.

The election is over and this country is in the same mess it has been for four years.  We still have a socialist front man for the Marxists in our government.  The Senate is still under the control Harry leaving us in a stalemate in Congress.  Locally the Republican Party has been just as ineffective in California.  The American people are in denial of the facts and need to be informed. 

No amount of effort in registration and monetary support will make a difference how the people will vote.  We have had several decades of effort wasted on Republican candidates only to suffer defeat after defeat.  Facts, logic, and reason have not worked.  What is needed is an effective way to educate the public and bring back the spirit that made this a once great, strong, and prosperous nation.  WE need to appeal to the emotions of the people.  That is the only way we can get more support for our cause.  We must show a direct benefit to voting with us.  We must promise better, more valuable things and deliver to usurp the euphoric promises and scare tactics of the Democrats.  We face a huge and daunting task that will take time.  This is the only way we can make any headway.  So let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work.

I am not a big supporter of Mitt Romney but having experience with turnaround companies I must clear something up. In the late 70's Pertec's techknowledgy was outdated and had little if any hope of continuing. So the new management bought up a bunch of computer companies with similar issues. They sold off everything that was thought to have future value. Cut expenses to the bone and went bankrupt. Top middle, and some lower level management did well (they saw what was coming and prepared for it) but most employees were about of a job. This was a calculated plan. My next encounter with a capital venture company was as a computer dealer of Rexon and other products. Two venture capital companies took over the operations of Rexon and a tape drive company started and operated by Sr. Ben Wang. Both companies had a large investment in technkowledgy that was being surpassed by new ones. The investment for these two companies to compete was just too much. The venture capital companies sold off everything they could and drained off everything leaving nothing but skin and bone. Rexon and Wangtech went under. Again management and the venture capital companies did very well while Rexon and Wangtech employees were out of jobs. There was no hope for any other outcome. The action taken by the venture capital companies was not antagonistic towards anyone. They did not start out to raid these companies. They brought about a strategic end. Much like an army would retreat and save what was possible. Yes the venture capital companies made a bunch of money but they did not steal from anyone. In a capitalistic system there is the possibility of losing. There is a risk involved with a chance of making a profit. Not all will survive, just like in nature. The company that Mitt Romney ran helped many companies to better times, some were doomed to fail. That is business. A much better outcome than when the government decides who will benefit from taxpayer funds. It is not a perfect system but the best that there is

Immigration Policy Changes

Children born to visitors to America (tourists, diplomats, students, and those who entered without a valid visa) residing in America cannot be eligible for citizenship simply due to being on American soil. Other than in emergency cases, neither the states, nor Federal Government have no obligation to pick up the medical expenses of foreign visitors. All visitors must have means to sustain themselves for the entire duration of visit prior to receiving a visa to enter America. They will not be eligible for any social services provided by State or Federal government. Those who entered our country illegally are subject to deportation based on an individual review of circumstances for them being in this country. Economic situation in their home country or medical needs without the means to pay for them is not a valid reason for them to stay. Only reasonable fear for their safety or life if they return to their home country will be considered as a reason for being allowed to continue their stay. Most importantly, our borders must be secured to prevent illegal entry.

Ignorance of Islam is Helping the Enemy

It is mind boggling to listen to people who one might think are critical thinkers, show how ignorant they are to the greatest danger to western enlightened way of life. A war waged for over 1,400 years is coming to a head and so many “leaders” refuse to see, hear, or talk about it candidly.

The word “PEACE” does not have the same meaning in Islam as it does to the rest of the world. To Islam “peace” can only reside in the lands under Islam and Sharia rule. Islam divides the world into two sections, the house of “peace”, and the house of war. The house of war is anywhere that is not under Islamist control. That is where you and I live. By this definition, the west is at war with Islam and Islam must defend itself by massacring all those who do not submit to Islam. The Koran insists that non-believers, without lifting a finger, are attacking Islam just by not accepting Allah as the one and only true god. Therefore Islam is defending itself as its followers go around the world destroying property, torturing, and murdering non-believers. The truth about Islam needs to be brought out in the open and recognized by the masses. That includes many Muslims who have no clue as how ridiculous the concept of non-aggression by the non-believers can threaten Muslims.

Those who believe that there is a reformation coming to Islam should be careful what they wish for. The reformation in Christianity was not a refining or change but reaffirming its original teachings. It erased the man made twisting of the religion, like the Salem witch trials and other abominations. A reformation within Islam will bring it closer for strict interpretation of the Koran where it states “never make friends with the people of the book”. The Jews and Christians are the people of the book (Bible). Unlike the Bible that teaches true peace and tolerance, the Koran promotes the eradication of all that is not Islam. Every Buddhist in Afghanistan was murdered and all historical records, temples, and historical artifacts were destroyed.

No one can get along with Islam except as a slave. If we all do not recognize this fact, we all be slaves or dead.

The enemy within

I encourage you all to campaign vigorously and positively for you candidate in the primaries. But be sure you vetted your candidate thoroughly. Forget about the opponent’s negatives. Just push all the reasons why your candidate should get elected. Negative campaigning in primary elections must be avoided. After the primary election it is our duty to get behind the primary winner of our party. This is very important. Even if your candidate is not selected put all your effort into supporting the one who was elected. That candidate most assuredly is much closer to your beliefs than the opposing party’s candidate. We can’t all have everything our way 100%. Realizing this and being able to live with is the mature thing to do. Let’s not be little children, pick up our marbles and go home. The candidate of our party is the one to support. I urge all grass roots workers to do the responsible thing. That goes especially for the candidates who did not make the cut. Do not let your disappointment punish your party’s candidate by voting for some miner candidate who you know has no chance of being elected or not voting at all which is tantamount to voting for the opposition. If you analyze the situation critically and logically, you will realize that your party’s candidate is with you at least 80% of the way, much closer to your beliefs than the opposition’s candidate. Do not cut off your nose to spite your face. You will be hurting yourself. There may be exceptions, for instance if the Democrat is more of a conservative (Highly unlikely) than the Republican or the Republican candidate is a plant by the Dems. How could the latter happen you ask? Only by us not ferreting that candidate out in the primaries. The enemy within our Party has been us. We must not lose one other election due to childish emotions. There is too much at stake.

Don’t Let The Obama Machine Fool You Again

There is an old saying; “fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.” If we are taken in once, it might not be our fault. The second time we can only blame ourselves. The Obama machine fooled America and we elected him to the highest most powerful position in the world. He has been dismantling all that America was. The people have become disenchanted with him and his cadre. His reelection to a second term is in jeopardy. He is now campaigning for reelection.

He has been raising money for quite some time. He has or will have over a billion dollars in his campaign chest and has already started to spend it. To help keep America dependent on foreign energy sources he has pressured large corporations into promoting his “green” agenda. Today I saw a commercial promoting ethanol use in gasoline. A practice that is causing price increases in corn and corn products. This caused price increases in other items all over the world. Corn is used to feed farm animals. When it costs more to raise pigs, cattle, and chickens the price of these items is raised and we all have to pay more at the grocery store. It takes around 27 pounds of corn to distill one gallon of gas. This raises the price of gas, lot more than we think. Our government subsidizes the growing of corn. This is one way this administration is ruining America’s economy.

These people are doing everything they can to bring America to its knees. They are stubbornly keeping us from exploiting our own oil and natural gas reserves. At the same time we just gave billions of dollars to Brazil so they can hire the Chinese to drill for their oil. Not only that, but Obama promised to buy it. First we are denied to drill our deposits, denying American jobs and economic growth. Then we will have to spend more money to buy foreign oil.

These and his other actions are shoving America in to an even deeper economic hole. He is using the EPA to increase the price of energy which in turn raises the cost of everything else. During his campaign for president he vowed to bankrupt the coal industry. Coal is the major generator of America’s electricity. He is attacking our industries further hurting the economy.

This man cannot be allowed another term in the White House. Four more years and America will be in ruins. Ruining America’s economy not only makes Americans poor, it weakens America, including our police and military. If things continue, America will be vulnerable to attack. There are forces out there that are attacking us right now and soon we will not have the resources to defend ourselves.

Up until these past few months, Obama could not be accused of being too patriotic. He did not put his arm over his heart during the playing of the National Anthem. For years he refused to wear the American Flag Pendent. Instead of meeting with wounded troops he went to play basketball. There were many other incidences where he passed on honoring our military. He is against a day of prayer that every president before him participated in but he did pray with the Muslims on an Islamic Holy day. Now that the killing of Usama Bin Ladin was thrown into his lap he has said “God Bless” more times than during all the time he was running for president and after. He is honoring the troops that he ignored before. He has said “God Bless the troops” and “God Bless America” in his speeches about the killing of UBL. Finely he paid tribute the heroes of 9/11 in New York. It is just a ploy to mesmerize us. The man is on a campaign trail.

He has never stopped campaigning. We must no fall for his deceitful speeches. His intentions are not honorable. Reelecting him or any of his cadre in the Senate and House will bring America to ruin. We need people who will lift America to greater heights not those who are diminishing America’s greatness. November 2012 may be the last chance we have to rescue current and future American generations. Don’t let this opportunity pass by. Vet new candidates, select the right ones, and work hard to elect them.

Barak Husain Obama deserves no accolades for the death of UBL

When engaged in a war there should be only one goal that is to win. The feelings of the enemy can’t be part of the decision making in how to conduct a war. Much of the world Muslim community considered Usama Bin Laden a holy man. Well apparently so did our president. Our president scoffed at the National Day of Prayer yet he participated in prayer during a Muslim Holy Day. It was the decision of his administration to conduct Muslims services for the leader of people that have nothing but contempt for us. Muslims have hacked off the heads of news reporters, defiled the bodies of our military, tortured and raped civilians, pushed a man in wheel chair in to the ocean, and forced its own children back into a burning building because they were female and were not wearing head scarves. Usama Bin Laden inspired the incineration of almost three thousand unsuspecting innocent civilians. This man was the leader of the people that attacked the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington DC. The devastation of life and our economy was horrendous. After all this and much more how much respect did we owe people who celebrated these events in the streets by dancing, shooting into the air, and giving children candy? I do not feel a movement that is working very actively to shred our Constitution and replace it with a primitive 7th century mentality of Sharia Law deserves any respect at all. We are being attacked on many fronts. They are wrong and we are right. We must win and they must lose.

Some, even so called conservatives, praised president Obama for making a “gutsy” call. A call he had to make. If he did not give his ok to the elimination of America’s worst enemy he would have paid a heavy price had it become public that he let Usama Bin Laden escape. There was nothing “gutsy” about his decision. He was forced into it. Many American lives were lost hunting down this miserable excuse for a human being. He was caught because of the efforts set up by the previous administration. The “gutsy” call was made by the passengers of the third hijacked airplane when they said “let’s Rock ‘N’ Roll” and forced the plane to crash into a field. “Gutsy” calls were made by the men and women fighting our enemy. It was a “gutsy” call to hunt down our enemies. Our current president just happened to be on watch when the opportunity came to eradicate Usama Bin Laden. He had very little to do with it.

Put America First

We helped the Muslims get rid of the Soviet Union occupation and what did we get for it? Four plane loads of our people being incinerated as two took out the World Trade towers, one slammed into the Pentagon, and one is a grave in a field. Almost 3,000 people died. We got in the middle of the strife in the former Yugoslavia and all sides now hate us. We liberated Kuwait from a despot and they cannot wait for us to get the hell out of there. Why does our government insist on helping out the wrong side? The Egyptian dictator was just about the only one helping to keep a somewhat truce with Israel. Now every country that helped to restrain terrorism to one degree or another is now in danger of being totally controlled by people who really hate us. These people are attacking us abroad and the home front.

America is under attack by one enemy that is both foreign and domestic. This is the enemy that attacked our military barracks around the world, held embassy employees hostage, blew up caf├ęs frequented by overseas Americans, killed our sailors on board ships in foreign ports, and many other such atrocities. This same enemy killed almost 3,000 in New York, the pentagon, and the passengers in an airborne America plane. This enemy killed 13 people on a military post in this country and made many attempts to bomb crowded area in America. The one common denominator in all these events is the cry “Allah-uh Akbar”, the last expression of those who attack Americans and others just before their evil deed. This cry tells all, the reason for the attacks. It is the ideology of a barbaric seventh century mind set teachings of Muhammad.

It is time for our government to put America first. Stop sending foreign aid to countries that hate us. Stop spending money on wars that end with us having more enemies. Stop wasting the lives of our brave men and women. Stop worshiping at the altar of a Global Government. Stop putting the needs and wants of foreigners ahead of the many Americans that need a hand up. Just put America first.

We Can and Must Fix the System

People have been led (wrongly) to believe that Social Security would be a major part of their retirement income and Medicare would cover their healthcare. Both have been mismanaged and wrought with fraud. SS funds have been raided for decades. Since our legislators felt it more important to fund studies such as the sex lives of bugs, paying for monuments to themselves, restoration of Mosques in places like Saudi Arabia and Egypt (very oil rich countries), and aid to countries whose leaders live high on the hog by siphoning off most of the aid money while their people live in squalor. We spend millions on the UN which has become a forum and force for evil. Now there is talk of denying retired people who have contributed to SS and Medicare for their entire working life. That is despicable.

Our legislators have mismanaged revenues. It’s time things get set right. Stop handing out money on non-deserving projects. Let’s take care of American citizens first. Then if there is anything left over, we can take a look at what we can do for others. Tax money must never be spent on self promoting projects. There are Federal projects that should be taken care of by the states. Federal Education Department should be disbanded. How can Washington DC handle the schools in California or Appalachia when schools in their own district are failing? On what basis do the Feds feel they can run the private financial system when they have no clue on how to live within their means?

The Federal Government was established for the sole purpose of protecting the citizens of America. Yet they refuse to protect our borders but do provide special privileges to illegal foreigners at the expense of taxpaying Americans. Americans pay more for out of state tuition than foreigners with no legal status in this country. There are illegals with several children born here with all expenses paid for by tax money while too many Americans are dying because they can’t afford to pay for healthcare. Islamists from all over the world are determined to rip up our Constitution and replace it with Sharia Law. The Feds seem to be aiding and abetting this onslaught. There is something very wrong with this picture.

There are solutions available but our leaders do not see them. They have morphed into a type of special kind of royalty that has lost touch with the people. Just like the lords and kings of olden days, they look at the population as subjects to rule over instead of serving them. They have lost touch with the basis that this country was based on, a government of the people, for the people, and by the people.

America is becoming a top down ruled country. We are too close to being a socialist dictatorship. The Feds are employing socialist methods and justifying them with Marxist ideology, an ideology that has failed miserably. It is time to implement the KISS method, keep it simple stupid. Our government is too large, too complicated, and too cumbersome to have any semblance of efficiency. We must vet new candidates, pick the right ones, and work hard to elect them to replace those who are ruining America. If these new officials won’t size down the government then they too must be replaced until we get the right people into office.

Obama is Lowering Our Standard of Living

The Obama administration’s goal has been and still is to plunge America to a standard of living on par with Third World nations. Prior to the spill in the Gulf it took two weeks to process applications to drill new wells. Since the spill 5 requests have been waiting for three to nine months. He is using any excuse to raise the price of oil so that fewer and fewer people can afford to drive their vehicles, strangle the air transportation industry, make it more and more expensive to transport goods across the country, endanger supplies and their transport to our troops, and generally weaken our national security.

At a time when the oil providing nations are in political turmoil and the world oil supplies are in danger, we should be drilling and exploiting our own energy sources. We need more sites pumping oil, more refineries, more nuclear plants, and reduced restrictions on producing reusable energy sources.

The solution is private enterprise not government mismanagement, waste, and corruption. The American entrepreneur and worker, if left alone with less government interference, can make this nation strong, powerful, and respected again. Now is the time for action. We need to make some changes in Congress and the Administration.

Moderate or Radical Islam, is There a Difference?

Reading various article concerning Islam I am confused by the terms “radical” and “moderate” Islam. Exactly what do these terms mean? Other than maintaining a cast system, (the rich and powerful versus the poor and enslaved, the privileges of men and the denigration of women) the main goal of Islam is to conquer the world and have it submit to a World Caliphate and Sharia Law or die. What part of this goal can be called “moderate”?

Lands that are overrun by Islam have very cruel solutions to the Infidels. They must submit to Islam, either by conversion or accepting to live in dhimmitude. All who refuse to submit are murdered. A dhimmi must give up his or her space (be it a seat or their home) to a Muslim. He is required to pay a special tax and stay out of the way of a Muslim. They are not allowed to congregate to worship other than Allah. They may not wear symbols of any other religion. They are not allowed to poses a Bible. Men are not allowed to marry Muslim women unless the man converts to Islam. A Muslim man can take a non-Muslim woman, since women are considered property.

We must stop making a distinction between “radical” and “moderate” Muslims. All Muslims have one goal. That is to dominate us all and eradicate all that is/was not Islam. Since the early 600 AD, Islam has been waging war on the rest of the world. The sooner we realize and face this fact the better we’ll be off.

IF THE EPA WAS here in 1865 America would still be a third world country - broke with no JOBS.

This was a post by Gerald4 on the Huffington site and then potsed by Lock Piatt in Song of Truth.

The EPA rules and regulation's mere the main factors that destroyed the jobs that used to pay decent wages for a decent days work in the Steel Belt (Rust Belt)!

Why did all of the Copper smelters close in Northern Michigan? EPA

Why did all of the Paper Mills close everywhere in the USA? EPA

Why did all of the Steel Mills close in Pittsburg? EPA

Why did the computer chip manufactur¬ing plants close in the USA? EPA

When the EPA's proposed "Cap and Trade" is passed by the US congress, our remaining petrochemi¬cal industries will relocate to foreign countries and then they will fire most all of their thousands of employees as they close down their refinery businesses in the USA.

If the EPA had been created in 1865, the USA would be a third world country of unemployed beggars today, or maybe a part of Germany or Japan.

If the US economy implodes, the USA will probably resemble India, Mexico, China, etc., as these countries were in the decades before they industrial-ized. I do not believe that any of these foreign countries will help the US citizens if we are in distress.

Almost all products are made with steel, aluminum, plastics, lead, copper, lumber, paper, gasoline, diesel fuel, electricit¬y, and other products that pollute or destroy the environmen¬t as they are produced. I cannot think of any product that is manufactur¬ed using any processes that do not pollute the environmen¬t. Can you think of any?”

The Obamacare Fallacy

American people are torn between the reality they know and the hope of change that promises a fairytale world. In the real world nothing is free. In the world of maidens being rescued from fire breathing dragons by princes with universal healthcare, there just might be.

All insurance programs depend on one thing; the number of people paying into the system is greater than those drawing on its resources. It is based on simple math that anyone should be able figure out, even though our schools are not doing too well with teaching math. The only way Obama’s healthcare program has any hope of working at all is if ever person pays into the system from birth. The way it is now the healthy ones can opt out of the system by paying a minor penalty. The result cannot be anything else but bankruptcy. Deposits of one dollar and withdraws $100.00 will result in a negative balance or subsidizing the account with taxpayer’s money; you know, redistribution of assets and that is not sustainable for long.

Since our courts have ruled demands for mandatory participation is unconstitutional and without it the program cannot work, this bill has to be repealed now and a new start for an improved system allowing cross state participation and competition, reformed tort system, and improved record keeping and communication.

Return to Capitalistic Entrepreneurism is Way Overdue

It is time we push our governments (from federal to state to local) to lift the restrictions on exploiting all our available resources and stop trying to artificially create an economy. A Mass. 'Clean Energy' Plant is closing after $58 million in state aid. Evergreen Solar calls itself a victim of weak demand and competition from cheaper suppliers in China. A major reason for low demand is that business and individuals realize that switching to solar energy is a huge investment (that may or may not be pay off) and not a prudent move in an uncertain economy. Unemployment hovering around 10%, prices constantly going up (due largely to cost of oil being pushed up by OPEC), and a financial system constantly being manipulated by the government and the chosen few (favored by the government) are not conditions for investment in anything but the bare necessities.

Evergreen Solar is not an isolated case. Every time a government meddles with business the economic deteriorates. A robust economy works best in a supply and demand environment, not with artificial stimulants. We watched a huge experiment that spanned half the world, took forty years, made millions of people miserable, killed countless number of people, and in the end failed. How many times and ways will people keep banking their heads against the wall before they realize that all they are accomplishing is a massive headache?

While we develop new sources of energy (and new means of using it) we need to exploit the resources that are readily available. This will lower the price of energy and provide the profits to invest in research and development to get to where we need to be. Restricting our economy only makes it harder and eventually impossible to achieve our goals. We need to be smart about it and not deny the opportunity to succeed. Success will come via ingenuity by individuals free to experiment, try, fail, and succeed.

The National Education Association of the United States and the Federal Department of Education must go

The National Education Association of the United States and the Democrat Party has announced its true intention without any masking. They have told us blatantly, it is control over the lives of future generations, even more so than they already have. We have been told that they intend to do the same thing that Hitler did by instituting his Hitler Youth movement and the Pioneers of the Soviet Union.

While Obama’s children are attending a private school, this administration ended the voucher program for all other children in DC. While the public schools are not good enough for their children, they have denied a better education for children of middle and low income families. They are determined to brainwash our children with Marxist propaganda, something they can’t do to the kids attending schools that concentrate on basic education; math, science, literature, and true history.

What has single-payer socialized medicine, immigration “reform”, a Cesar Chavez national holiday, special rights on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity and expression, special rights on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity and expression, abortion on demand, affirmative action, repeal of right to world laws, got to do with basic education? Nothing but these and many other things that have nothing to with education are all part of the agenda of the NEA of US.

Their goal is to prepare our children for a social paradise and a Marxist dictatorship. We must resist their efforts of enslaving future citizens of this once great country. The NEA must be declared a subversive organization with the intent of destruction of America as we know it.

Sharia Law vs. Our Constitution

America is the envy of the world. For the past hundred years we have been the most prosperous, moat powerful, and most generous country the world has ever known. America is the country where ingenuity and initiative is possible. America is the nation that has brought most of the innovations that the world has benefitted from. The ability to achieve this height of prosperity, protect the world from despots (like Hitler), and be the most generous nation ever, is made possible by one document, our Constitution. This single document is the corner stone of freedom and liberty.

Sharia Law is to Islam what our Constitution to America. Sharia Law is a collection of edicts hanging on to a 7th century mentality of “might makes right” that denies individual freedom, denies liberty, and imposes draconian punishment that does not fit the (supposed) crime. If America was founded on Sharia Law it would be a totally different country. We would be ruled by uneducated men that would have stifled any and all scientific and social progress. Most of the citizens would be pore, many enslaved, and under yoke of oppression. Since Sharia Law does not allow individual thought especially questioning any aspect of Islam, most of us would be living as serfs. Since Islam puts women in the category of beasts of burden without the right for a formal education there would be no women doctors. Without women doctors women would not be afforded medical attention since an unrelated man can not touch or even look at a woman. How many families can say they have a doctor in the family?

It is the goal of Islam to rule the world under a World Caliphate. Practicing Muslims in America want Sharia Law to replace our Constitution. Replacing our Constitution with Sharia Law will be a disaster not only for America but for the whole world. Instead of more text books about Islam, our schools should be concentrating on teaching the virtues of living in a land of liberty and individual freedom. A land where the heights one can reach are dependent on one’s ability, determination, and willingness to work hard; not by circumstances of birth or the whims of self proclaimed messengers of God.

How Much Campaigning is Too Much?

This president spews more bovine excrement than a carnie hustler. This man has spent the majority of his political stint campaigning. In Illinois he voted “present” most o f the time. Perhaps he did not spend any time on the issues since he was planning his run for the US Senate. Once he got to the US Senate, he immediately started to campaign for his run for the Presidency.

Because the path he wants to lead this country is so incredibly wrong, he has to constantly try to convince us to go along with him. When he stops bloviating and we get to analyze the issues critically, we realize how wrong he is. This past election is evidence that the people are not convinced that his way is the right path for our country. His campaigning did not help his socialist/Marxist cause.

Get ready for the snake oil salesman selling his poison. I am sure his campaign for the virtues (sic) of a socialist paradise will be hard, loud, and even threatening. Even though the Democrats, with a total majority in both houses, completely ignored Republicans, their campaign will center on compromise and bipartisan cooperation. When they had all the power their slogan as “we won you lost” so shut up. Now they will try to convince the people that to compromise is a moral virtue. Like hell it is. This country is an ideological struggle between what made this country great and what made so many miserable in countries around the world. Their way enslaved millions; behind the Iron Curtain of the Soviet Socialist Union, China, Cuba, and others. Let’s hope that he won’t be able to fool all of the people all of the time.

Can’t We All Just Get Along?

Hell no! Why should we even try? The Democrats keep talking about compromise as if compromise is always a good thing under any and all circumstances. Compromise in politics is like alcohol. A glass or two now and then is cool. Guzzling down cases of “two buck chuck” is disgusting. So a compromise would be only a half a case, that is enabling the drunk.

The road that the progressives in Congress , Obama, and his group of socialists/Marxist Czars and appointees are taking America directly in the opposite direction the people want to travel. In the past two years we have witnessed a huge growth of government, unprecedented deficit spending, and loss of freedom, and liberty that has brought us too close to USSR style socialism. This trend was aided and abetted by an elite group of career politicians who are totally out of touch with the reality of life of the American people. They have totally discarded our Constitution and the reason why this land divorced itself from a top down style of governing.

How can there be bi-party-ism if compromise is impossible without trashing the Constitution and abandonment of our core values? If self-reliance, liberty, and pursuit of individual happiness is to survive how can we compromise with the Marxist edict of “to each one’s need and each one’s ability”. That means distributing the wealth? That type of a system cannot survive even in a dictatorship, as we have seen with the Soviet Union and the Iron Curtain countries?
