Words To Live By
"The era of small government is over ... government has to be more proactive, more aggressive." ( Tim Pawlenty 2006)

"You're just petty politicians, who'd sooner sign onto the wisdom of a tyrant in another country, than the demands of ticked off voters in your own." (Neil Cavuto June 2008)

“I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment.” Mr. Cheney went on: “The point I made and I’ll make it again is that Al Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of Al Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it.” (Vice President Cheney NYT Feb. 2007)

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. (Ronald Reagan March 1, 1975)

"Oh, no! First of all, if I took one vote away from a serious candidate, it would be a sin." (Al Franken Time Magazine, 9/1/03)

Obama Proves His Marxist Heart With Net Neutrality

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

The Federal Government taking over the internet and making it a public utility is yet another example of President Obama’s (and Senator Al Franken’s)  lust for a perfect Marxist utopia. Where someone else pays for what you want. But don’t let any of your Minnesota friends know that Al Franken is a left wing nutjob.

Internet is a service. You are buying a service, you do not have a right to it. If you use more than someone else, you should pay more. If your usage is causing a slowdown for everyone else, why shouldn’t the company protect other customers?

yes, there is room for debate about the tactics and ethics of all internet providers and key companies in the internet – Google for example. They’ve been censoring search results and promoting others in a pay to play scheme for years, but they don’t get punished.

Friends, Net Neutrality sounds so wonderful, but this is classic Marxism. Someone built a product (the internet and its wonderous way it gets to your home, work, or mobile device) and the Progressive left wants to steal their product and spread the wealth around.

Set aside your dislike for Comcast, Verizon, ATT, etc and think about it. Don’t use Government to punish someone or something you don’t like.

In a free society, you have to assume risk. In a free society, competition will drive better and cheaper goods and services.

This is another reach of Government. Once they control the internet, what makes you think they won’t tell you what you can and cannot see on it? They ruined health insurance. They ruined school lunches.

Wake up people. You’re being played by a Marxist. Think don’t feel.

There is no such thing as a free lunch.

Obama’s Election Day Message: You Can’t Possibly Run Your Own Life

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Via the DNC, President Obama sends out this GOTV email this election day morning.

If you don’t vote today, you’re letting someone else decide the future for you.

You’re letting someone else pick a reality that will shape your life for two years. Today is just that simple.

So don’t let it happen, Andy.

Confirm your polling place, and make sure you and your friends and family are the ones deciding the future:

Barack Obama

The President of the United States used to be known as the leader of the free world, but President Obama’s message to his supporters is one of dependence and a lack of faith that these Americans can possibly manage their own lives with out the tethers of the nanny state.

 

Obama Was In Town For Franken & Dayton After All

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

Oh look, I guess President Obama was in town for the Franken Dayton event.

Franken FLOTUS Obama

Klobuchar ’06 v. Klobuchar ’14 – When Doves Become Hawks

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

Senator Klobuchar is proudly defending new found Hawk President Obama’s decision to escalate the war on ISIS by expanding the area of airstrikes from Iraq to also include Syria.

Don’t get me wrong, ISIS is pure evil, but the Senator used to sing a completely different tune on military involvement. In her 2006 campaign, she said  wanted to bring all the troops home (well she wiggled and giggled to some form of a pull out stance).

On perhaps the biggest question about Iraq — withdrawing troops — Amy Klobuchar has a different answer now than she did earlier this year. In June she told Minnesota Public Radio she supported bringing home more than half of the troops in 2006 and withdrawing the rest by the end of next year, with one caveat.

“We need to bring a significant number of the troops home,” she said. “One reason I just can’t buy into bringing every single troop out by the end of the year is that if there’s a possibility that a peacekeeping force comes in or the U.N, comes in and if we’re asked to be part of that, we must do that.”

That was last summer.

Here’s the DFL Senate candidate in a recent appearance with Tim Russert on NBC’s Meet the Press.

“Clearly, at this time, this late date in mid-October, we can’t bring a significant number home,” she said. “We have to be reasonable. I have never been one to say ‘bring them all home tomorrow.’ I have never subscribed to one of those mandatory dates, because I understand that, despite my opposition to the war from the beginning, that we have to be responsible about how we bring our troops home.”

“But you did say bring home bring home a significant number this year, you’re saying now that’s probably not doable. What about a vast majority in 2007, which is what you said also?” Russert asked.

“These predictions were built on the promises and the predictions of progress from this administration,” said Klobuchar, “and we simply haven’t seen that so you have to be reasonable in what you’re going to do here.”

Once Klobuchar and Democrats got an anti-war Democrat elected to the Presidency, they did end the war in Iraq based on politics at home. ISIS, in my opinion, is the effect of that political decision to “bring our troops home”. That, coupled with the bungling foreign policy of this Democrat administration have left the World with no leader of the free world.

President Obama and Sen. Klobuchar have been too preoccupied with defeating the Tea Party and ambulance chasing to maintain a firm grasp of the burdensome and icky reality of foreign policy and the importance of not letting politics and the media distort your judgement.

I pray that this country wakes up and realizes that elections have consequences.

 

Big Protest – Unions Aim To Get Too Big To Fail Protection

Friday, September 5th, 2014

The way I tell that election season has officially started is not the State Fair, or the TV ads start flying. Nope, I look for organized union protests like we saw at “fast food joints” yesterday.

I have no ill will towards any individual who is forced or chooses to carry their union card, but I do have to ask why you seek another master? I do believe the usefulness of a union has long since become irrelevant. With the advent of technological advances workplaces are safer and with the ever growing nanny state’s bureaucratic armies, compliance and oversight is taken care of.

The fact is, Big Labor unions are not concerned with the plight of their members, but rather on the health of the union itself. And they are spending big time to help push that “workers revolution” you may have read about in Marx’s utopia. And they are spending a boat load of their union members’ hard earned money (forcibly collected ‘dues’) on their radical mission.

The Service Employees International Union, or SEIU, is one of the biggest backers of the effort to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour and to unionize fast food workers. The union is heavily invested in the effort, having spent more than $38 million, directly and indirectly, in 2013 alone.

The union collects dues (IE: Taxes its members) in order to spend $38 million in a push to grow the union. They often pay people to “protest”. They also have staff and administrative and management costs that the members are forced to pay for. Doesn’t that seem like an unnecessary cost to the worker when the union is more interested in its own size, growth (dare I say profits) then the well being of the current member’s take home pay?

Don’t forget, unions take a cut out of every member’s paycheck up front. I just don’t understand why anyone who hates big business is so dang loyal to big labor. Forgot my belief that big labor has been over taken by marxists, and look at the fact that labor unions are becoming bureaucratic nightmares with leaders simply looking to maximize their salaries and profits while helping out their political allies in power.

Union leaders want to redistribute private business capital into the hands of their members through pay raises so the unions can collect more dues and elect more Democrats who will help install ….

Franken Can’t Have It Both Ways On Iraq

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

Senator Al Franken got elected, in large part for the backlash against Republicans for the war in Iraq. He was a chief proponent of lobbying criticism at the decision to go to war. Now that chaos is spreading in the middle east due to the US doing what Al Franken wanted (IE: Leaving), and Iraq and Syria are falling to radical extremists, was Al Franken’s 2008 campaign rhetoric the right prescription, but more importantly, what does now – Sen. Franken have to say to a Democrat President faced with tough choices on national security and the growing global risk of radical Islam?

Great video by the MNGOP highlighting the hypocrisy of Democrats on Iraq and threats of doing nothing.

Google Kills Birds in CA, But Promotes How Evil Vikes Stadium ??

Monday, August 18th, 2014

Big BrotherFor those that know me well, they know I really don’t like Google. Their bogus (pay to stay) search results and all seeing eye of an information gatekeeping empire should scare the living begeebus out of every American. They get special treatment from the US Government because they cooperate with them like a good fascist company would do. Oh and they lean left too.

But I was not aware that not only do they have the pay to stay web search billion dollar business model that also selectively editorializes web traffic, but Google also owns a solar energy  farm that is killing birds.

IVANPAH DRY LAKE, Calif. –  A new form of solar energy is having an unwanted side effect: It makes some birds ignite in midair.

California’s energy commission is studying the issue of bird deaths at a new kind of solar plant that works with concentrated sun rays. The technology has proved unexpectedly deadly to birds at a new solar plant in the Mojave Desert. It’s owned by Google and two California energy companies.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is urging the state to hold off on permitting another plant of the same kind. It wants more study of what it says is the significant number of birds igniting and falling as they fly above the plant.

Anyone wanna bet that since Google is reaping profits from COUGH subsidized COUGH solar energy that this would potentially color their search engine rankings on energy production as a whole? Dare I say they maybe even venture into activism by spiking stories on traditional fossil fuel energy sources from search results?

After all, any for profit company would do everything within its power to hurt the competition – with in the bounds of the law of course. Did I meant I think they get special treatment from the US Government?

As to the Vikings’ reference…. Google: bird deaths minnesota and you’ll be directed to a list of stories about how the new Vikings’ stadium “may” be dangerous for birds. Meanwhile, Google’s solar plant in CA is frying birds in mid air. Do as the liberals say, not as they do….

Time to take the tin foil hat off and get to work so I can pay my taxes so we can subsidize Google’s bird killing solar power farm.

Can a private company violate your 4th amendment rights? Or only Government?

Obama’s Latest Marxist Usurpation

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism…..

No one is willing to look at the reasons why a business is leaving the US. Instead Obama is trying to claim ownership of private property. AKA: Confiscate it. That’s what a Marxist would do. Via Minnpost

“Retroactive,” no less.Jim Spencer in the Strib reports, “The Obama administration wants to stop corporate deals like a proposed Medtronic acquisition that could enable the company to save millions in U.S. taxes by shifting its headquarters to Ireland. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew this week urged the finance committees of both chambers of Congress to push legislation that restricts the ability of U.S. corporations to move their headquarters abroad to lower their tax bills. Lew wants the law made retroactive to May, a move that could scuttle Medtronic’s proposed $42.9 billion acquisition of Dublin-based Covidien.” It’ll be fascinating to see who opposes that one.

I’m pretty sure its unConstitutional to pass a law aimed specifically at a person or designated persons, but the Constitution is treated like a sneeze guard, not barrier to out of control Government in the United States of America.

The only people that can do wrong in Obama’s America are businesses and corporations.

This Republic is in serious trouble if these long train of abuses and usurpations continue.

$2.1 Billion a month – Where Does the Obamacare Bribe Money Come From?

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

The same people who refuse to repair that crumbling bridge your kid’s school bus crosses everyday because they say they just don’t have enough revenue coming in yet, wants to run your health care. Many of us pointed out the flawed funding formulas and unsustainability of unicorn farts and happy thoughts fueling the drive before and after the law was rushed through Congress without anyone even reading the bill, but we were scoffed at and told we were just mean bad people.

Well, it looks like the mean bad people were the ones lying to implement the hoax that is now Obamacare.

The large subsidies for health insurance that helped fuel the successful drive to sign up some 8 million Americans for coverage under the Affordable Care Act may push the cost of the law considerably above current projections, a new federal report indicates.

Nearly 9 in 10 Americans who bought health coverage on the federal government’s healthcare marketplaces received government assistance to offset their premiums.

90% of the signups had to be bribed into doing so. Where does that bribe money come from people?

Premiums that normally would have cost $346 a month on average instead cost consumers just $82, with the federal government picking up the balance of the bill.

8 million Obamacare enrollees X $264 subsidized monthly premium (aka bribe) = $2,112,000,000  A MONTH

Oh the math gets far worse….

That total does not count the additional cost of providing coverage to millions of additional consumers who bought coverage in states that ran their own marketplaces, including California, Connecticut, Maryland and New York. About a third of the 8 million people who signed up for coverage this year used a state-run marketplace.

The fact is no one really knows.

The Congressional Budget Office estimated in April that the annual cost of subsidies will rise to $23 billion next year and $95 billion in 2024, although the budget office continued to project that all the law’s costs will be offset by additional revenue it raises and by cuts in other federal healthcare spending.

But hey, don’t worry, we’ll make up for it in other areas….

Which gets me back to that crumbling bridge they say they don’t have the money to fix.

Folks, someday, you will be that bridge that they can’t afford to fix if you allow Government to take over your health care system.

BenghaziGate – Blame America First, Lie Second

Monday, May 5th, 2014

Here’s a great video from Jeff Davis about the timeline of the Benghazi attacks and subsequent coverup.

Its shameful that Obama is still in office and that anyone who worked for him during and after Benghazi is even considering running for office in the future.
