Obama's Budget - More Smoke & Mirrors


I am not a member of a Tea Party, even though I support what they are doing.  Below is an e-mail I just received from the Woodlands Texas Tea Party, which is the one I usually attend events with.  Their e-mail is concerning the BRAND NEW budget plan that Obama just pulled out of his a** an hour or so ago, and returned to both houses for another vote.  It is the same last minute smoke & mirrors plan that the Dems are trying to sneak in on the American People.
My opinion is that if they will not allow a Senate vote on the Republican Cut, Cap, & Balance plan, we should allow the default and start letting the public know that Obama & the DEMs are responsible for the default AND ANY UN-NECESSARY DECISION TO CUT ANY ESSENTIAL SERVICES!  Here is the Woodlands Tea Party e-mail about Obama's CURRENT proposal an hour or so ago:
"Once again, the debt increase occurs immediately, while cuts are pushed into the next ten years where a future Congress must show the political will to retain them.
It’s possible also that the current deal includes triggers to automatically implement across-the-board cuts that are easily gotten around:
“if Medicare’s part of the trigger, then Democrats will follow Ace’s scheme to reinstate that money later even if the GOP doesn’t try the same move for defense. (Again, they do this all the time in “doctor fix.”) And even if the GOP does try the same move, why would Democrats care? They want to protect entitlements much more passionately than they want to see the Pentagon’s budget slashed, so they’d agree to reinstate the Pentagon’s money as the price of reinstating Medicare. The fundamental problem here, as always, is that Democrats don’t care about cutting spending. If there’s nothing built into this deal that prevents reinstating the money that would be cut when the trigger kicks in — and I’m not sure how there could be procedurally — then the trigger isn’t worth much.”
Progressives in Pelosi’s caucus are unhappy with this bill. The chairmen of the Progressive Caucus and of the Congressional Black Caucus have scheduled a joint-press conference on Monday to call on President Obama to raise the debt ceiling by invoking the 14th amendment.
Our suggestion, not surprisingly, is quite different. We want to see a budget passed that nails down what is to be cut and how much in the immediate future, not 10 years off. The other side wants a simple increase in the debt limit. Take Ryan’s budget with a budget from the Senate and work it out in conference, as should be, in exchange for a debt increase.
http://hotair.com/archives/2011/04/08/wheres-the-senates-budget/
“Normally, when a House plan fails in the Senate, the Senate passes its own budget plan in response. The two chambers then form a conference committee to reach a compromise that produces a budget. However, this process requires that the Senate actually approve a budget on its own. Since voting down HR1 and the Democratic plan, the Senate hasn’t done anything — which means it has gone more than 18 months without approving a budget of some kind.
Instead of negotiating on a bipartisan basis in conference, the Senate’s failure has the Democrats and Barack Obama grandstanding in public, despite their party’s refusal to budget at all. The media has allowed this to continue rather than ask why the Senate just doesn’t pass a budget and launch a conference committee to iron out the differences. The result is this public kabuki dance in which the one chamber of Congress that actually produced a budget — and another continuing resolution — gets blamed for the lack of a budget as funding runs out, rather than the chamber that hasn’t done its job for more than 18 months, even though it has controlled all three branches of government for the last three years.”
It’s now been well over 800 days.
Here’s where things stand on the budget. The last budget actually passed was Pelosi’s and Reid’s budget running from October 1, 2009-2010. In February 2009, $400B in new spending was added to Bush’s budget of 2008-2009. This new spending included the stimulus. We are now entering Year 3 of the Pelosi Reid budget on 10-1-11. And this budget is scheduled for a second 8% increase on 10-1-11.
The House-passed Ryan budget replaces and cuts $150B from the current Pelosi Reid budget in year one. There would have to be a compromise with the Senate. What’s the compromise, $75B? Boehner’s original plan allowed for cutting only about $7B in year one.
We continue to urge Republican leadership to insist that Congress pass and the President sign a budget for 2011-2012. That Budget starts in two months. There is still time to finalize negotiations even if we push it back 30 more days. There should be no debt limit increase until the Senate and House pass a budget and it’s signed by the President. Let the Senate pass whatever they want with no filibuster. The House will meet their plan in the Conference Committee.
By the way, Greta Van Sustern just called for a 60 Day extension of the debt limit so the people, (remember them?), can find out what’s in it. We are asking for only 30 days more.
Be sure to watch this glorious video of Marco Rubio on the Senate floor yesterday, making this same case.“Compromise without solutions is a waste of time,” Marco Rubio said on the Senate floor today. Enjoy this video — be sure to catch his exchange with John Kerry:"

STOP the Dismantling of America

STOP THE CHICAGO STYLE CRONYISM NOW - PRESIDENT OBAMA, IS THIS COMPLETE DISREGARD OF TRANSPARENCY PART OF THE "CHANGE" YOU PROMISED?  I REMEMBER YOU HAD PROMISED TO RESTORE TRANSPARENCY TO GOVERNMENT.  WHEN DID YOU DECIDE TO RENEGE ON THAT PROMISE?


I am writing to demand Congress begin immediate investigation into the seditious acts committed by Stephen Lerner, formerly of the SEIU as well as those of his colleague Abby Scher of Brooklyn College CUNY, who announced their plan of economic terrorism at The Left Forum's March 19, 2011 conference.


Their announced plot included a detailed plan that is already underway to crash the stock market and collapse the American banking system in an effort to bring the United States "to its knees."


Furthermore, it appears Regulatory Czar Cass Sunstein; his wife Samantha Power, Senior Director of the National Security Council; and Department of Justice Attorney General Eric Holder are key players in a related plot to dismantle and destroy America's Constitutional republic.  These three, among other high-ranking Obama appointees and czars, are all acolytes and beneficiaries of George Soros-funded globalist initiatives, including the Open Society Institute, and have actively participated in on-going efforts seeking to effectually rewrite the United States Constitution and its Bill of Rights in ways that will fundamentally transform the document into a fully "progressive" Marxist Manifesto by the year 2020.  We must immediately pass legislation to begin legislative OVERSIGHT over these political appointees and czars!  Criminal prosecution must be started against those czars that have committed criminal and seditious acts!  It is not enough to allow them to resign with Get-Out-Of-Jail free cards.

Furthermore, because Eric Holder has shown a clear reluctance to perform the duties of his office, to prosecute or even investigate Obama colleagues and supporters, (e.g. the New Black Panthers voter intimidation case), and because Mr. Lerner has visited the White House on numerous occasions as an apparent Obama Administration insider, it is incumbent upon Congress to ensure that the rule of law is upheld, and the potentially disastrous consequences of the seditious acts, incitement, and economic terrorism advocated and promulgated by Mr. Lerner and his colleagues be responded to and averted by force of law immediately.


THESE ARE BLATENT ATTEMPTS TO OVERTHROW THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT BY SUBTERFUGE, WITHOUT LEGITIMATE LEGISLATIVE APPROVAL, AND WITHOUT THE SUPPORT, KNOWLEDGE, AND APPROVAL OF THE PEOPLE.


IF THIS SOCIALIST/MARXIST INSIDIOUS PROPAGANDA IS YOUR PLAN, THEN SHOW YOUR PLANS TO THE PUBLIC, AND WE WILL SHOW YOU WHAT WE THINK OF YOUR PLANS.  WHERE IS THE OBAMA "PROMISED" TRANSPARENCY?


GOD BLESS AMERICA

The PARADOX of Compromise


There is a post at the above link which discusses “Politics and the Paradox of Compromise”.   It was written by David Brooks, on his blog.  I was interested in reading the post because for many years I have noticed what I consider to be a paradox in the concept of compromise.

My suggestion is that you read the post above now, BEFORE you continue to read my post, and that way, my post can have no influence on your impressions of Mr. Brook's above post.  My 30 years in the medical profession imprinted me with the precepts of the scientific method, along with the usual “blind & double blind” constraints.

Hopefully you have read their post, so I will continue with my comments.

The author above defines the paradox as “Herein lies the paradox. Compromise has unambiguous merits across multiple domains, but it is an action to which much of the general population is often decidedly averse.”  His whole post seems flawed, although years ago, I noticed that there DOES EXIST a paradox in the nature of Compromise.

His definition is almost the exact opposite of the paradox of compromise that I noticed years ago, so this second paragraph of his post started an uncomfortable sensation for me.  And as I read further, it became pretty clear that this was the same paradox that I had noticed, but being spun by the liberal/progressive mindset.

My definition of the paradox that I saw can be presented in a “parallel construction” to Mr. Brook’s blog post's definition.  What I saw was “Herein lies the paradox.  Compromise has COMPLETELY ambiguous merits across multiple domains, and it is an action which can be an almost spiritual exercise in some domains, to which NO ONE is adverse, and utter depravity in others, to which EVERYONE is "decidedly adverse”.

This is the ambiguity and paradox that I saw years ago.

After I had recognized and defined the paradox that I saw – the “what”.

Then for me, the fun part started – figuring out what caused the paradox, and could it be cancelled out of the process of compromise – the “why” and "how"?  One common trick in the use of the scientific method is to reduce the number of variables as much as possible to make it easier to parse the fewer number of variables remaining.  So I turned MYSELF into the constant, and then needed to only look to the various domains for the answer of “how and why is there this paradox”.

Mr . Brooks asked the question “…why is it that we so readily preach compromise to our children, our spouses and our business partners but are so averse to it in practice?” – while he mentions the previous three domains, he later brings the domain of politics into the comparison.

The solution I came to years ago as to the “why” is related to the domain.  Any time I perceive the person I am trying to compromise with, as honest, guileless, and without ANY ulterior motive, then compromise  becomes the “almost spiritual exercise”, for example compromise with children, spouses, clergy, business partners, etc. 


But if I perceive the person as dishonest, corrupt, or hiding some ulterior motive, then the exercise becomes “utter depravity”, and the stronger my perception is, the more depraved the exercise seems.  For example compromise with a cheating spouse, enemy combatant, military interrogation, a criminal, a heroin addict, a sociopath, or a habitual liar, etc.

For me THAT is the paradox that I see, and also the solution to it.  So the next time you are compromising with a spouse on what your 13 year old daughter’s curfew is, when the 13 year-old is out at night – If you suggest 1am and then your spouse suggests 7am, so as to be able to create an ACTUAL 4am curfew, with this style of dishonest compromise, you don’t have the “almost spiritual” feeling which is possible under FAIR conditions. 

And as another example, if you are trying to reach a political compromise and you suggest your acceptance for a $2.4 TRILLION debt ceiling increase, as proposed by your compromise partner, and he refuses unless you allow him to raise it anytime, at his sole discretion each year, you may feel trapped in the feeling of “utter depravity”, the same as you might feel when trying to compromise with a sociopath, or habitual liar?

Why Huntley Brown Can't Vote For Obama

Why I Can't Vote For Obama

A post by pianist Huntley Brown – Written PRIOR TO the Nov 2008 election of Obama as President.  The liberal fact finding site Snopes rates this post as TRUE.

"Dear Friends,
A few months ago I was asked for my perspective on Obama, I sent out an e-mail with a few points.  With the election just around the corner I decided to complete my perspective.  Those of you on my e-list have seen some of this before but its worth repeating.

First I must say whoever wins the election will have my prayer support. Obama needs to be commended for his accomplishments but I need to explain why I will not be voting for him.  Many of my friends process their identity through their blackness.  I process my identity through Christ. Being a Christian (a Christ follower) means he leads I follow. I can't dictate the terms he does because he is the leader.

I can't vote black because I am black.  I have to vote Christian because that's who I am.  Christian first, black second.  Neither should anyone from the other ethnic groups vote because of ethnicity.   200 years from now I won’t be asked if I was black or white. I will be asked if I know Jesus and accepted him as Lord and savior.

In an election there are many issues to consider but when a society gets abortion, same-sex marriage, embryonic stem-cell research, human cloning to name a few wrong economic concerns will soon not matter.  We need to follow Martin Luther King's words - don't judge someone by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.  I don't know Obama so all I can go off is his voting record.

His voting record earned him the title of the most liberal senator in the US Senate in 2007.

NATIONAL JOURNAL: Obama: Most Liberal Senator in 2007 (01/31/2008)
To beat Ted Kennedy and Hilary Clinton as the most liberal senator, takes some doing. 

Obama accomplished this feat in 2 short years. I wonder what would happen to America if he had four years to work with.

There is a reason Planned Parenthood gives him a 100 % ratings.
There is a reason the homosexual community supports him.
There is a reason Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Castro, Hamas etc loves him.
There is a reason he said he would nominate liberal judges to the Supreme Court.
There is a reason he voted against the infanticide bill.
There is a reason he voted No on the constitutional ban of same-sex marriage.
There is a reason he voted no on partial birth abortion.
There is a reason he voted no on confirming Justices Roberts and Alito.  These two judges are conservatives and they have since overturned partial birth abortion.  The same practice Obama wanted to continue.
Lets take a look at the practice he wanted to continue.

The 5 Step Partial Birth Abortion procedure.

A. Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby's leg with forceps.
(Remember this is a live baby)
B. The baby's leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
C. The abortionist delivers the baby's entire body, except for the head.
D. The abortionist jams scissors into the baby's skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the hole.
E. The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child's brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.

God help him.

There is a reason Obama opposed the parent notification law.
Think about this you can't give a kid an aspirin without parental notification but that same kid can have an abortion without parental notification. This is insane.

There is a reason he went to Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years.
Obama tells us he has good judgement but he sat under Jeremiah Wright teaching for 20 years.  Now he is condemning Wrights sermons. I wonder why now?
Obama said Jeremiah Wright led him to the Lord and discipled him.   A disciple is one in training.   Jesus told us in Matthew 28 v 19 – 20, go and make disciples of all nations.  This means reproduce yourself.  Teach people to think like you, walk like you, talk like you believe what you believe etc.  The question I have is what did Jeremiah Wright teach him?

Would you support a White President who went to a church which has tenants that said they have a:

1.     Commitment to the White Community
2. Commitment to the White Family
3. Adherence to the White Work Ethic
4. Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available to the White Community.
5. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting White Institutions
6. Pledge allegiance to all White leadership who espouse and embrace the White Value System
7. Personal commitment to embracement of the White Value System.”
Would you support a President who went to a church like that?

Just change the word from white to black and you have the tenants of Obama’s former church.  If President Bush was a member of a church like this, he would be called a racist.  Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton would have been marching outside.

This kind of church is a racist church. Obama did not wake up after 20 years and just discovered he went to a racist church.  The church can't be about race. Jesus did not come for any particular race.  He came for the whole world.
A church can't have a value system based on race.  The churches value system has to be based on biblical mandate.  It does not matter if its a white church or a black church it’s still wrong.  Anyone from either race that attends a church like this would never get my vote.
Obama's former Pastor Jeremiah Wright is a disciple of liberal theologian James Cone, author of the 1970 book A Black Theology of Liberation.  Cone once wrote: “Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community.  If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him.

Cone is the man Obama's mentor looks up to. Does Obama believe this?  So what does all this mean for the nation?

In the past when the Lord brought someone with the beliefs of Obama to lead a nation it meant one thing judgement.

Read 1 Samuel 8. When Israel asked for a king.  First God says 1 Samuel 8 v 9 “Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will do."
Then God says
1 Samuel 8 v 18 “When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king
you have chosen, and the LORD will not answer you in that day."  19 But the people refused to listen to Samuel.  "No!" they said.  "We want a king over us. 20 Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles."  21 When Samuel heard all that the people said, he repeated it before the LORD. 22 The LORD answered, "Listen to them and give them a king."
 
Here is what we know for sure God is not schizophrenic
He would not tell one person to vote for Obama and one to vote for McCain. As the scripture says a city divided against itself cannot stand, so obviously many people are not hearing from God.

Maybe I am the one not hearing but I know God does not change and Obama contradicts many things I read in scripture so I doubt it.

For all my friends who are voting for Obama can you really look God in the face and say Father based on your word, I am voting for Obama even though I know he will continue the genocidal practice of partial birth abortion.  He might have to nominate three or four supreme court justices, and I am sure he will be nominating liberal judges who will be making laws that are against you.
I also know he will continue to push for homosexual rights, even though you destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for this.  I know I can look the other way because of the economy.  I could not see Jesus agreeing with many of Obama's positions.

Finally I have two questions for all my liberal friends.  Since we know someone's value system has to be placed on the nation:

1 Whose value system should be placed on the nation.
2 Who should determine that this is the right value system for the nation?

Don't Vote For Boehner's Harry Reid "Clone"

Representatives, you must pass the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act of 2011.  Do not pass Speaker Boehner’s “clone” of Harry Reid’s plan!


Speaker Boehner’s proposal contains only modest differences from the one prepared by Senator Harry Reid.  Are you sure you want to join forces with the direction that Obama, Reid, and Pelosi are dragging our country?

Yesterday, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), scored the Boehner proposal and found the majority of "cuts" over the next ten years were “back-loaded”, meaning they aren't likely to EVER occur, whereas the debt ceiling would be raised by $1 trillion IMMEDIATELY.

Perhaps the MOST shocking aspect was the CBO found that Speaker Boehner's proposal only cut $1 BILLION in FY 2012!

That's right, a mere $1 billion dollars – ONE THOUSANTH of the debt ceiling raise Boehner proposes immediately!

The Cut, Cap, and Balance Act of 2011 meets ALL requirements INCLUDING compromise to President Obama’s demand of a debt ceiling raise of $2.4 TRILLION.  It has passed the US HOUSE and only requires a US Senate vote, it meets the Moody criteria for avoiding American credit rating reduction, it compromises to allow Obama’s military budget reduction.  It provides for a Balanced Budget, and future spending cuts requiring OUR government to “live within OUR means”, because the federal government HAS NO MEANS other than taking more and more of our money as taxpayers!  Obama lies when he states that the Republican plan refuses to compromise!

Watch President Obama’s falling ratings in the polls, from all polls, and his constituents, and then decide if you want to become the “bug” with Obama, or choose to become the “windshield” by voting with we the people, for the ONLY current plan to reclaim our country back, the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act of 2011.

Pass the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act of 2011.  Do not pass Speaker Boehner’s “clone” of Harry Reid’s plan!

Seniors are Greedy??


Alan Simpson, Senator from Wyoming, Co-Chair of Obama's deficit
commission, calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation as he
compared "Social Security" to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats.
August, 2010.
Look in the Mirror before you call seniors greedy



Here's a response in a letter from one of Senator Simpson’s constituents, an unknown farmer in Montana.  I think he is a little ticked off!  He also tells it like it is!  I did a little editing of the farmer’s remarks to keep his comments PG-13 rated.  Before you cite a liberal Fact Finding site like Snopes who is unable to find the anonymous farmer, so they will rate it “Mixed”, hoping everyone will disregard it, let me know because I can make a similar, personal  response (possibly even BETTER) to Senator Simpson based on MY specific information.  And I will be glad to contact Snopes (liberal husband/wife team with NO other employees) to let them know that I DID pen the new response to Senator Simpson.  So it would be rated TRUE.

 
Here’s what the anonomous farmer had to say:

Congress, who are the "greedy" ones.  It is you and your fellow nutcases

who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers.
And for what?  Votes.  That's right, 
sir.  You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of personal wealth, and advancing your pathetic, blood sucking political careers.  You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.

"Hey Alan, let's get a few things straight..

1.  As a career politician, you have been on the public tit for FIFTY YEARS.  But you have made no large monetary contribution as all Social Security recipients have (with the exception of illegal and legal immigrants).

2.  I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old. I am now 63).

3.  My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero ambition losers, in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would have made Bernie Madoff proud.

4.  Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and your cronys pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age 67.  NOW, you and your shill commission are proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN.   More UNILATERAL changes to a contract I made with the federal government 48 years ago.

5.  I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now you morons propose to change the rules of the game AGAIN?  Why?  Because you idiots mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to continue to steal money from Medicare and Social Security to pay off your mistakes and political favors.

6.  I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again.  Why?  Because you incompetent b******s steal our money so easily that you just keep on “redistributing” my contributions to bail out your pork programs that exceed their budgets.  Now, you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR mismanagement.

To add insult to injury, you label us "greedy" for calling "b******t" on your incompetence.  Well, Captain B******t, I have a few questions for YOU.

1.  How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?   It must be around $6 MILLION.

2.  At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?   It must be around $180,000 per year.

3.  How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?  The answer is ZERO and you are waived out of ObamaCare.

4.  What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or, as usual, have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?   The answers are NONE and YES.

It is you, Captain B******t, and your political co-conspirators called 

And you can take that to the bank, you miserable A$$."

And now Senator Simpson, lets take a trip down memory lane to examine the history of the rape of the Social Security “golden egg” Trust Fund.  You of course will never read this, but I wonder here in Texas exactly how many of these thefts you voted in favor of.

Need a Social Security history lesson?

Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and card were not to be used for identification purposes.  Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the message, NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION, was removed.

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. He promised:

1.  That participation in the Program would be completely voluntary.

No longer voluntary


2.  That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual income into the Program,

Now 10.4%  on the first $106,800
 

3.  That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year.

No longer tax deductible


4.  That the money the participants contributed would be put into the independent 'Trust Fund' rather than into the general operating fund therefore would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, and no other Government program.

Under Johnson the money was moved to the General Fund and re-distributed to failing programs and for political payoffs.  Without this THEFT, the Social Security Trust Fund would currently have a $2.5 TRILLION surplus in it.


5.  That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income.

Under Clinton & Gore up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed


Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month -- and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal government over the years, to 'put away' -- you may be interested in the following:

Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent 'Trust Fund' and put it into the general fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically controlled House and Senate.


Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

A: The Democratic Party.


Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the 'tie-breaking' deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US 

And my favorite:

Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?

A: That's right!  It was Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party.


Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments!  The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!  

Then, after a criminal rape of the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!

And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it!  If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe TRUE changes will
Evolve. 


Interesting Post on "The Two Minute Conversative" blog



Excellent post - “Geithner’s Choice” from Adrian Vance on “The Two Minute Conversative” blog, concerning the tax dodger and Obama cabinet member, Tim Geithner’s absurd economic leadership for America.  Also posted there, is the revelation of a “generational” cronyism between Tim, his father, and Obama.  Also the suggestion that the Chicago style political relationships  can be a personally dangerous choice.

Obama's Press Conference Tonight

President Obama, 

My prayer is that in your scheduled 9pm EST press conference tonight (July 25), you will announce your support for the ONLY national debt plan that compromises with you to give you your request for raising the national debt ceiling by $2.4 TRILLION, also compromises to give you your request for setting your military budget, meets the Moody criteria to avoid a downgrade of America’s credit rating, does not affect essential services unless you CHOOSE to hurt the USA in that way, already passed in the US House and needs ONLY passage in the US Senate, AND provides the blueprint for a return to fiscal sanity.

The Cut, Cap, and Balance Act of 2011

The American people want it, and everyone who is a patriot, and loves this country wants it.

This is a turning point for you, this nation, the people, and even the world.  The question is, will the turning point be a win-win situation, or will it be more of the same that we have experienced from the beginning, from your administration.

There are millions of prayers being said this afternoon.  I hope and pray that YOU are listening – I KNOW GOD IS LISTENING.

GOD BLESS AMERICA

More Dishonest "Crowing" From the Rooster-In-Chief

Usama Bin Laden Justice

Lets see, was Dr. Goebbels one of President Obama's czars?  Oh no, he was the Propaganda Minister of the Nazi Party!

I am so glad we have public records of Obama's previous comments and statements about the US Navy Seals Team 6 and the interrogations at Gitmo.

About time the TRUTH was told.

This is just another opportunity to paint Obama with his true colors!

OBAMA did NOT kill Bin Laden!   An American sailor did, who Obama, just a few weeks prior to the action against Usama Bin Laden, was debating on whether or not to PAY either him, OR our military.

In fact, if you remember,  the Obama administration actually charged and attempted to court-martial 3 Navy Seals from Seal Team Six, when a terrorist suspect they captured, complained they had punched him during the take down and bloodied his nose.  The Obama administration further commented how brutal the Seal Team 6 was, calling them “Nazi's” and “Baby Killers”.

Now all of a sudden, the very brave men they vilified are now heroes when they make the Obama administration look good in the eyes of the public.  Obama just happened to be the one in office when the CIA finally found Bin Laden, and our sailors took him out. Essentially, Obama only “OK’ed” Bin Laden being taken out.  Years of Bush’s policies and the CIA have made it possible.  But Obama certainly wanted all the credit.
 
OBAMA'S OWN WORDS EXPOSE THE LIES FROM HIM:

2008: "Navy Seal Team 6 is Cheney's private assassination team."
versus
2011: "I put together Seal Team 6 to take out Bin Laden."

2008:  "Bin Laden is innocent until proven guilty, and must be captured
                alive and given a fair trial."

versus
2011:  "I authorized Seal Team 6 to kill Bin Laden."
  
2008:  "Guantanamo is entirely unnecessary, and the detainees should not be
                 interrogated."

versus
2011: "Vital intelligence was obtained from Guantanamo detainees that led to
                 our locating Bin Laden."
  
This is NOT an Obama victory, but an AMERICAN victory!  His own public comments prevent his getting away with just another lie!  God Bless America!

PROOF of Republican Compromise



The Cut, Cap, and Balance (CCB) Act of 2011

The PROOF of Republican compromise which Obama neglects to mention when he publically states that the Republicans will not compromise is the $2.4 TRILLION debt ceiling raise which the Republicans compromised to give Obama the exact debt ceiling raise that he requested!  That raise is a huge compromise by Republicans in the CCB Act, and only compromised because the amount is less than the CUT in this bill.  And the CAP ensures that the federal government will CONTINUE to hold down spending for years to come.

Does this sound like the Republicans refuse to compromise – Or does this sound like just ANOTHER mis-representation from Obama?  Mis-Representation = LIE!





As you can see below, the Republican CCB Act RAISES THE DEBT CEILING to the $2.4 TRILLION that Obama wants, makes CUTs which do not affect federal essential services (another lie from Obama), and slows the expansion of government therefore not requiring tax increases.  This bill can start returning America to the people!  And if the people decide that Obama should be a one term president, we can continue the process in 2013!


CUT

Cuts total spending by $111 billion in FY 2012.  The savings is divided as follows:
  • Reduce non-security discretionary spending below 2008 levels, which saves $76 billion. 
  • $35 billion cut to non-veterans, non-Medicare, non-Social Security mandatory spending.  
  • Defense budget at President’s level. 

CAP

Total federal spending is scaled back based on the glide path for the fiscal years below:
  • 2012, 22.5% of GDP.
  • 2013, 21.7% of GDP.
  • 2014, 20.8% of GDP.
  • 2015, 20.2% of GDP.
  • 2016, 20.2% of GDP.
  • 2017, 20.0% of GDP.
  • 2018, 19.7% of GDP. 
  • 2019, 19.9% of GDP. 
  • 2020, 19.9% of GDP.
  • 2021, 19.9% of GDP.

BALANCE

It REQUIRES the passage of a Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA), BEFORE raising the nation’s debt limit.
DEBT CEILING INCREASE CONTINGENT ON BBA
Provides for the President’s request for a debt ceiling increase if a qualifying Balanced Budget Amendment passes Congress and is sent to the states for ratification. 



Q&A: The Cut, Cap, and Balance Act of 2011

How much is the first year spending cut in the “cut” portion of the bill?
  • The legislation reduces spending by $111 billion in FY 2012.

Why $111 billion?
  • This savings total meets the promise to enact immediate spending cuts as part of any debt ceiling bill, and would cause the deficit to finally get back down below $1 trillion next year (a reduction to the previous year’s deficit of more than $400 billion).

Does the legislation make any changes to Social Security or Medicare? 
  • No. 

Does the legislation make any changes to veterans spending? 
  • No. 

What does the legislation mean for defense spending?
  • It is at the same level as the House-passed FY 2012 budget.

Why cap spending at 19.9% of GDP?
  • This would place spending in line with average spending over the last 30 years. 

What are the details of the Balanced Budget Amendment?
  • The legislation would require that any Balanced Budget Amendment include the following: 
1.     A balanced budget component;
2.   A super-majority requirement to raise taxes; and
3.   A limit on spending as a percentage of GDP. 

What is the process for the debt ceiling being increased? 
  • Provides for the President’s request for a debt ceiling increase if a Balanced Budget Amendment passes Congress and is sent to the states for ratification. 

Why $2.4 trillion debt ceiling increase? 
  • The President has requested that the debt limit increase by this amount.  This amount is less than the amount of the spending cuts in this bill.  A debt limit increase of this magnitude is a major sacrifice on the part of House Republicans, which is why it is made contingent on measures to ensure that the federal budget is permanently under control.

Mr. Obama - YOU Will Be Responsible



NO Mr. OBAMA, IT WILL NOT BE REPUBLICANS AT FAULT IF SOCIAL SECURITY CHECKS ARE STOPPED WHEN WE PREVENT A DEBT CEILING RAISE WITHOUT ACCOMPANYING CUTS IN THE DEFICIT.

It is clear to most voters that ALL essential services including Social Security, Medicare, and continued re-payment of existing federal debt, can be paid with current federal tax income alone.  YOUR mistake will be if YOU decide that any essential services should be cut.  Even though you have failed miserably in returning ANY transparency to MY government as you promised when you were a candidate, it will be painfully transparent to most taxpayers exactly who is responsible if YOU decide to cut any ESSENTIAL service, when current tax income would pay ALL essential services.

President Bush cannot be blamed for YOUR mistakes.  It will be completely transparent to the American people who would be responsible for the choice to cut Social Security, or ANY other essential service.  YOUR scare tactics will not work this time, without consequences!

YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HIDE THAT MISJUDGEMENT FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE – IT WILL BE COMPLETELY TRANSPARENT

A look back at the November, 2010 US House elections, or your falling support, and legislative falling support,  in any current poll, should be serving notice to you and all Democrats, that we the people are awakening and we are watching and we are placing the blame for the critical situation we now find ourselves, squarely where it belongs – ON YOU AND THE DEMOCRATS!

Yes we are aware that the Cut, Cap, and Balance bill, the only bill that has passed the US House, is compliant with the Moody criterion,  and can beat the deadline to prevent the lowering of the American credit rating.  And yes we will notice that the Democrat controlled Senate with your encouragement, refused to pass the only bill which meets ALL requirements.

Remember why there has been no budget since FY-2009, even though the Democrats controlled both houses since 2006 and you have controlled the presidency since 2008.  Looks like your feeling of "running out of time" is because your Democrats and you have been running away from responsibility for quite some time?

To understand the tremendous significance of the Obama/Democrat's negligence last year (FY-2010),  you have to know that it was the FIRST TIME in the history of the US federal government, when the party in power failed to pass a federal budget!  And Democrats were in TOTAL control of all three branches of government at the time!

Also notice that as soon as the NEW Republican House landslide took the House back,  in November 2010, they immediately went to work on the budget for this year (FY-2011), that Democrats had refused to bother with last year, which were the most basic part of their duties.  The new republican House sent their budget to the Democrat-controlled Senate.  And Harry Reid sat on it and did NOTHING.

The Democrat controlled Senate as of today, July 23, 2011, STILL have no budget vote nor budget proposal whatsoever!

YOU MISJUDGE THE PEOPLE AT YOUR OWN POLITICAL PERIL!

Senator Reid, Choose the Right



Senator Reid,

 DO NOT BLOCK A VOTE IN THE SENATE ON CUT, CAP, & BALANCE. BECAUSE IT IS THE ONLY PLAN THAT WILL PREVENT AN AMERICAN CREDIT DOWNGRADE, BECAUSE ALL OTHER PLANS WITH THE POSSIBLE EXCEPTION OF PAUL RYAN’S DO NOT MEET THE MOODY CRITERIA.


You have NO MORAL right to prevent ANY vote in the Senate, and interfere with the free agency of the American voters to choose the direction we want to go with OUR federal government.  Just because you have the POWER to take that free agency away from voters, does NOT mean it is moral for you to choose that course.


CHOOSE THE RIGHT!


In this world, actions invariably have consequences as you saw in the November 2010 US House turnaround.  The only reason the same thing didn’t happen in the US Senate at that time, is because their tenure is longer.


Many rumors say that the reason you were re-elected in Nevada the last time, is because of a last minute influx of money from questionable sources.  If that is true, I hope that is the only criminal act used for your re-election.  You have been in my prayers for three years now, but I am going to modify my prayers to include hindering the illegal and immoral pressures in your life.  You seem not to realize or recognize them?  How can you stand against them if you no longer are able to recognize them?

Your mother may have taught you long ago – “You will become JUST LIKE the friends you surround yourself with, so choose wisely”.  Those are wise words if you understand them and HEED them.


I pray that you have the clarity of thought, sincerity of purpose, and willingness to change your vision for America into a vision desired by the patriotic Americans, many of which made it possible for you to hold public office.

God Bless America

No Internet National ID



I am writing to respectfully make clear that you need to put an immediate stop to Barack Obama’s plans to institute the "National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace" aka Internet National ID.  This is merely a more palatable Obama-ism name for an agenda to isolate the American people during a fabricated “crisis”.  The American military considers Internet shutdown as a “war provocation” in other dictatorships, and we the American people MUST recognize it could be used to harm us here in America, in the same way.

NO TO GOVERNMENT-ISSUED INTERNET NATIONAL ID, and NO TO PRESIDENT OBAMA’S “THOUGHT POLICE”

The fact is, an online national ID will NOT PROTECT ANYONE from the many viral, phishing and identity theft programs already in use. These sophisticated programs already have the ability to impersonate people online, including breach of passwords, Internet IDs and security "dongles." SHUTTING DOWN the Internet will not change that - it can provide no "protection" for Internet visitors.  So what does Obama’s faux "Cyber-Security" proposal REALLY accomplish?

CONTROL!   CENTRALIZED FEDERAL CONTROL.  No thank you, Mr. Obama.  The danger to be used against the American people is too great to be acceptable.

The Federal government and the Obama administration in particular have become adept at redefining principles, stifling free speech and implementing programs that would make notorious totalitarians squirm.

This agenda must end now. The Internet is the last bastion of vigorous First Amendment rights and expression we have under this odious Executive Branch, and we must refuse the Obama administration’s attempt to take control of it!

Therefore, it's vital individual activities must remain unhindered and uncontrolled by Federal government intrusions, snooping and regulatory encroachments in ALL guises. 

President Obama, keep your hands off my freedoms!

Other dictatorships worldwide shut down Internet access as soon as they want to hide their persecution, murder and other mayhem from the world.  We have seen multiple examples of that over the last couple of years in Libya, China, Egypt, etc.

America even has a secret “proxy cloud” strategy to prevent dictators from isolating their people from the world to more easily commit their atrocities.  The secret aircraft “Commando Solo”, and even drones can be sent into countries to frustrate dictatorial efforts to subdue dissenters. 
So the American strategy is to prevent other dictators from escaping the world’s eyes for their murder and mayhem – but no protection for our own American citizens?

There is NO LEGITIMATE purpose for any dictator to shut down the Internet in some sort of fabricated “crisis” situation.  It is simply a dictatorial method for subduing dissention towards the dictatorship!

We don’t want that that here in America – we want limited government intrusion, with unlimited freedom and transparency.

I insist you immediately shut down Obama's Orwellian"National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace" -- TODAY!


Support it and stand with the dictators at your own political peril.  We the people are watching.

MY TASK NOW IS TO INSURE THAT AS MANY CITIZENS AS I AM ABLE TO REACH, ALSO KNOW.  GOD BLESS YOU WITH WISDOM MR. OBAMA, AND IN THE ABSENCE OF THAT, GOD BLESS AMERICA!
