• I Want To Vote FOR Someone, I’m Tired Of “Least Worst” Candidates!

    I’m going to say something that makes me question my own ethical and moral foundation.
    84 ethics complaints were lodged against Newt Gingrich. 83 were dismissed, and the 84th, for which he paid a fine and admitted doing, the IRS later, (3 years later), ruled he wasn’t guilty of anything. (1)
    And, if he had been guilty of some  personal ethical lapse, or had defied some red tape to get a good-for-America agenda passed, I don’t care.
    There, I Said It!
    Did Newt Gingrich lead a conservative attack, help take Congress away from the Dems for the first time in 40 years, and work on numerous policies within that Congress to pass legislation that helped America?
    Did Newt Gingrich pay the price for his success? And his big mouth? What is it about Newt Gingrich that creates such a “love-hate” relationship with both his peers and the voters? Is that “love-hate” relationship directed more at the politicians ideas and what he represents, or personally at Gingrich?
    I ask, because recently, and not so recently, we have seen the same vitriol amassed and fired, in a not dissimilar fashion, at others. Ronald Reagan was an idiot, Sarah Palin, well, we could write books about the lies and distortions directed at her and her family.
    Was Palin “Gingriched?” (Gingriched: to be subjected to a continual onslaught of political charges and attacks, that, although false, can lead to disarray in one’s ability to push their agenda’s, at which point resignation is inevitable, to return the focus to the business of the state or nation.)
    Did Newt retire from Congress a wealthy man?
    Did the policies he pushed in Congress lead to his personal enrichment?
    Was he hiding, then or now, from any questions concerning his actions?
    Newt Gingrich lost many followers with his statements on the now-more-than-ever-obviously-a-fraud Man-caused Global Warming hoax, sitting on the couch with Pelosi and being used as a dupe to hammer the right, and his support for charging Americans for being Americans with a healthcare mandate scheme.
    How far ahead would he be without those missteps? Would anybody still be supporting Romney as a Conservative under that scenario?
    Has Gingrich admitted his mistakes? I think yes, I believe he has heard the people on these issues.
    Is Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney more likely to advance radical ideas to change Washington? Both of these men have had to be on both sides of many issues, because of their positions.
    In your mind, which one compromised gladly to get a bill, and which one hated every inch they had to concede?
    I believe Newt Gingrich could have stayed successful in the background and made a good living without subjecting himself to the embarrassment he certainly knew was coming. If he is willing to admit his mistakes and take the abuse, I must admit that he is more likely to get my attention than Mitt, “I’m Next In Line After Dole And McCain” Romney.
    I still wish I had better choices.
  • Thank you, Mitt.

    I don’t like Mitt Romney. At all. I don’t trust Mitt Romney. That said, I have to thank Mitt Romney.
    Because of his Capitalist connections with Bain Capital, we are able to watch (and identify) the anti-American socialists as they come apart at the seams. Through the attacks on Romney and his building and dismantling business’s for profit, we are watching the attempted rise of the Socialist European workers model. This is obama’s vision of America, this is the message his “occupier” groups have been created to spread.
    These people have somehow come to believe that once you are hired, you cannot be fired. Years and years of Government and Union corruption and influence have turned them into worker trolls, ignorant of the workings or freedoms afforded by Capitalism.
    Is there any Capitalist or free American citizen that understands the Constitution that actually believes that what anyone else earns is any of their business? I don’t think so.
    They bring up the intellectually vapid argument of wage disparity between the worker and the bosses.
    DUH! No (excrement), Sherlock!
    People invest their money into the freedom of a capitalist venture to make themselves money, not as a public duty to support people for the rest of their lives.
    How many millionaires did Bill Gates create? Even now, do you think any of his workers should have anything to say about what he, Gates, makes?
    When you go to work for someone following their dream:
    A) no one is forcing you to work for them,
    B) you can take the money and experience you gain from the fine people that trusted you enough to give you what you accepted as a fair wage when you took the job for your completing certain agreed upon tasks, and use it to open your own business under our Capitalist system,
    C) you learn that no one should aspire to work for anyone. Working for others gives you the incentive, seeing the owners of businesses flourish is the best advertisement for American Capitalism.
    Any business can go broke. Unions can bring any business to its knees. Presidents can over-regulate people out of their jobs. That is America. It takes Capitalism to make the necessary corrections to keep businesses growing, against the odds in the face of corrupt unions set on putting them out of business, (Eastern Airlines, anyone? How many airlines have the Machinist Union put out of business?)
    When companies can’t stay afloat on their own, others may decide to risk their money investing in that business, or the parts thereof, to create other business.
    Just as Corporations are people, the business they run are lives. Some business may live for years, others may die too soon, and others may be used as “organ doners” to support other ventures.
    Those that do not understand the basics of business, or understand and are trying to destroy the Capitalist system, cannot and should not be trusted.
    Knowing who they are is a good thing.
    Thank you, Mitt.
  • End the Discrimination against the Police and Firefighters!

    I have a suggestion that deals with problems a little closer to home than the Washington, DC, National or International stories of which I usually blather. Although, because all that will read this live in a community, somewhere, which has something in common with the community everyone else lives in, it could be considered a national, small “n”, issue.
    How many of us have heard our local officials complain that without tax increases, or some other new form of revenue wrung out of the citizens, they would be forced, (FORCED!) to lay off Police and Firefighters?
    These fear tactics have been used over the years to extort more and more money from the private sector, to benefit overpaid, redundant, mostly union Supercitizens called “Public Sector Workers.”
    I, for one, am tired of it. I have put my mind to this problem, and, my mind being what it is, have come up with a way we can level this unfair burden the Police and Firefighters carry.
    I think it is only right that, on a grassroots level a la the T.E.A. party movement, we should all get behind my new proposed Bill.
    I haven’t settled on the name yet, because, as we know, the name of a Bill is usually the opposite of what the Bill truly represents, and I’m a lousy liar, so I’m kind of stuck.
    How does the “Public Workers Equal Rights Bill” sound?
    The purpose of the bill would be to see that if any Police or Fireman lose their government jobs, than an equal percentage of workers in every other department of that government must also be shed. No exceptions.
    This is not a matter covered by union contracts regarding seniority. As a matter of fact, this is such a serious matter of fiscal emergency that all government contracts should be cancelled until the budget problems are alleviated. Unfortunately, that would never happen. This, however, is doable, because it is fair, on an obama, occupier and socialist level.
    If the monetary situation in any district, county, city or state is such that first responder emergency workers and protectors of the citizenry are being fired, you can be sure that the disarray and incompetence that led to this dire outcome is spread throughout the entire structure of the government involved. The public must be protected from their budgetary incompetence.
    It is plainly discriminatory for the Police and Firefighters to be continually singled out for termination. No other government worker is any better than them, and none should enjoy the protection not afforded the Police and Firefighters. If 3 out of 30 police are fired, than the rest of the workforce should shrink 10%, Department by Department. End the Discrimination against the Police and Firefighters!
    Start pushing this idea on all your local officials and conservative friends. Push it in City Councils and Statehouses where the Republicans have control.
    I would think the Police and Firefighters unions would probably like it, also.
    The “Public Workers Equal Rights Bill.”
    It’s only fair.
  • The Sickness and The Cure

    Being a man of his word, our beloved president has set out with a passion to keep one of his widley-ignored-by-the press campaign promises. He is laying the groundwork for his EPA to cause our energy prices, exactly as he planned, to “necessarily skyrocket.” (1)
    Along with climate change apologists and medical mandate pushers Romney and Gingrich, obama is perfectly happy to cripple our economy on two fronts, our health care system and energy industry.
    This is not being done in the name of science, it is an agenda created to purposely destroy America and her advanced position in the world, to turn us into a third world country, dependent on the UN and others for our rules and survival.
    Once America collapses like Greece, obama will circumvent our Constitution by the dictates of the IMF and the UN, as Greece has been forced to change.
    It is obama’s goal to strip America of her First and Second Amendments, and that can only be done by making us grovel before the international community for help, like Greece, a collapsed, broken nation.
    Spain is a perfect example. (2)
    obama has repeatedly stated that their’s is the “green” model he wants for America. (3)
    They swallowed the garbage put out by pseudo-scientists and environmentalists, people pushing unproven radical theories, like those of Penn State’s climate charlatan Michael Mann, (who has done as much for Penn State’s academic reputation as Jerry Sandusky has for their football program), and his fellow conspirators, like data manipulating “Professor” Phil Jones of Britain’s Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia. (3)
    As a result, Spain’s unemployment rate has zoomed over to over 20%, and they, like the rest of Europe, are on the brink of collapse.
    Meanwhile, obama’s EPA is about to throw thousands more Americans out of work, and, at the same time, drive electricity rates up by shutting down at least 32 coal-fired power plants, with another 36 similarly targeted. (5)
    obama is not satisfied with his destruction of the Gulf oil industry. That is not enough to cripple America. He needs to continue his high-tax, pro-union, anti-jobs, anti-energy, anti-American policies as fast as possible, to do as much damage to America before he is thrown out of office. Like Wilson, FDR and LBJ before him, he needs to push his progressive policies into our system so they can never be excised.
    All the while, blaming the Republicans and a so-called do-nothing congress for the damage caused by his actions. The House Republicans that have passed tax cuts, energy bills, jobs bills and budget bills that obama and his party refuse to allow to come up for votes because the bills violate their strict progressive ideology. AND, they get cover from “journalists,” like this one, that write articles blaming the Republicans because they happen to represent their constituents, and have not rolled over for the progressive destruction of the country.(6)
    My readers know I have been railing against all of our “choices” in the republican field. I have listed my problems with them, stating that I would never vote for some of them.
    Of course, should any of them wind up against obama, I will probably hold my nose and pull the lever for them.
    If I had to choose from this line-up today, before the Iowa beauty contest, (and this could change according to unfolding events), I would say the strongest ticket we could field would be Perry/Santorum.
    Together, with their combined executive and legislative experience, I believe they could reverse our current destructive progressive course. I believe there would never be a day anyone would have a doubt as to whether America’s greatness and American’s freedom and individuality were their first priority.
    I also believe we need better choices.
