What’s Shut Down, What’s Not

From the AP & Yahoo News: In this time of argument and political gridlock, a blueprint to manage federal dysfunction is one function that appears to have gone smoothly. Throughout government, plans are ready to roll out to keep essential services running and numb the impact for the public. The longer a shutdown goes on, the more it will be felt in day-to-day lives and in the economy as a whole. A look at what is bound to happen, and what probably won’t: ___ THIS: Washington’s paralysis will be felt early on in distant lands as well as in the … Continue reading

Thought For Today – Oct. 1, 2013

  If the Shut Down only effects “Non Essential Government Functions” and the government can run without these “Non Essential Functions” what the hell are we doing paying for governmental functions that are not essential to the operation???????  (quote by Buck) Kudos bro. ~ Hardnox

Ted Cruz on Meet The Press

From Human Events by John Hayward: Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” this weekend, where he was subjected to the sort of confrontational needling by host David Gregory that no Democrat will ever have to face on anything.  Good thing, too, because if “journalists” ever treated someone like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid or President Barack Obama the way Gregory attacked Cruz, they’d have a nervous breakdown. Cruz did not have a nervous breakdown.  He handled the assault from this “impartial journalist” with aplomb, which must have driven liberal viewers nuts.  I notice all the lefty … Continue reading

Feds Find $100M to give Detroit

Last week Nancy Pelosi told CNN “The cupboard is bare – there’s no more cuts to make.” Despite a bare cupboard, sequesters and the possibility of shutting down the government, they managed to scrape up $100M in grants to help out the largest bankruptcy ever. Fox News says The Obama administration has found $100 million to send to struggling Detroit, despite recurring claims that the government cannot afford to make any more spending cuts. Gene Sperling, chief economic adviser to President Obama, told the Associated Press the administration scrounged through the federal budget and found untapped money that “either had … Continue reading

The Death Of The Middle Class

44 Facts About The Death Of The Middle Class That Every American Should Know By Michael Snyder, on July 30th, 2013 What is America going to look like when the middle class is dead? Once upon a time, the United States has the largest and most vibrant middle class in the history of the world.  When I was growing up, it seemed like almost everyone was “middle class” and it was very rare to hear of someone that was out of work.  Of course life wasn’t perfect, but most families owned a home, most families had more than one vehicle, … Continue reading

A Lesson In Abject Stupidity

“Raising the debt ceiling doesn’t increase the nation’s debt”, Pres. Obama declared in a speech on Thursday.   From CNS News: In a speech at the Business Roundtable headquarters in Washington, D.C., Obama dismissed concerns about raising the debt ceiling by noting that it’d been done so many times in the past: “Now, this debt ceiling — I just want to remind people in case you haven’t been keeping up — raising the debt ceiling, which has been done over a hundred times, does not increase our debt; it does not somehow promote profligacy.  All it does is it says you got to … Continue reading

His & Hers ObamaScare Ads

They’re guaranteed to give you the creeps – but that’s the idea. Online ads produced by the conservative group Generation Opportunity are giving a whole new look at what Obamacare is really all about, and it’s not pretty. The ads are targeted at healthy young men and women — the very demographic Obamacare needs to come close to succeeding in taking over the nation’s health-care system. For Men :   And here is one for you ladies :  

Lt. Gen. W.G. Boykin Warns of Engineered Economic Collapse, Martial Law, Dictatorship

In this video entitled “Marxism in America” General Jerry Boykin discusses his background and training in understanding Marxist insurgencies and how current government actions parallel Marxist tactics. (hat-tip new subscriber: Tom Schuckman) Boykin’s words are spot on but it would be nice if our asshat elected officials actually listened to us.  The blizzards of emails, telephone calls, letters, and faxes result in little if anything. Now after the latest mass shooting at the Navy yard in DC, Zero has pledged more Executive Orders regarding gun control. At the same time he has pledged more support for the Syrian rebels (Al-Qaeda) … Continue reading

Some Labor Day Observations.

Here we are, at the Labor Day holiday. A day off work, the last day of summer vacation for school students, and RELIEF on the way for beleaguered  moms who’ve been hearing cries of “I’m BORED” since mid June. I have a different take on Labor Day, and would like to share it here. What Does Labor Day Mean? In years past, we celebrated this day by remembering those who toil in all fields of endeavor, from farm hands, to factory workers, to doctors, nurses, lawyers, and Indian chiefs. Truck drivers, mechanics, hair dressers, teachers, rubbish collectors, chefs, waiters and waitresses, … Continue reading

The Next Time You Hear THIS…….

…..” We have MORE full-time workers than 2007″, hit them over the head with THIS. From Investors Business Daily.com By Jed  Graham   ObamaCare Cuts Low-Wage Workweek Near Record Low Here’s something worth paying attention to this Labor Day: The workweek in low-wage industries has fallen back to the historic lows seen at the depths of  the recession. The White House and like-minded economists have disputed the notion that  ObamaCare is having a meaningful impact on work hours by noting that the  private-sector workweek has recovered pretty much back to where it was in 2007,  before the economy tanked. But that view … Continue reading

Sometimes, Senator Lee, Motive Does Matter

Recently I saw the old Hitchcock movie, Lifeboat.  The story centers around a group of Americans whose ship is sunk by a German U-boat, leaving them stranded on a lifeboat.  Soon the U-boat is also sunk, and an evacuated German sailor seeks refuge with the Americans in the lifeboat.  The Americans disagree about whether or not to let him on the boat but ultimately they do.  The plan is to try and guide the lifeboat to Bermuda, but they have no compass and are unsure about the accuracy of their course.  Eventually the German sailor takes charge of the boat and … Continue reading

Meet Your Fate

Welcome liberals and the uninvolved: Think of the United States as an airplane.  Its structure is held together with rivets.  These rivets are made of the ideals expressed in the Declaration of Independence.  Their placement is dictated by the U.S. Constitution.  The result is the airplane called the united States, a Constitutional Republic. A unique country amongst all the others. Some rivets have corroded over time.  Individual liberty and freedom have been rusting away almost from the beginning.  Man has a tendency to want power and control over others.  We rejected a monarchy once upon a time and now have … Continue reading

It’s Time to Demand Accountability

“We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.”   – Ronald Reagan From Fox News today: Student left in DEA cell to get $4 million from feds SAN DIEGO –  A 25-year old college student has reached a $4.1 million settlement with the federal government after he was abandoned in a windowless Drug Enforcement Administration cell for more than four days without food or water, his attorneys said Tuesday. The DEA introduced national detention standards … Continue reading

“Means Testing” and Marxism

“From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs!” ˜Karl Marx In the battle over government spending, we hear a lot about the need to cut “entitlement spending,” which generally means Social Security (SS) and Medicare.  What qualifies these as “entitlements,” I assume, is the obligation that’s incurred when we pass a law (unconstitutional as it may be) that requires people to pay into these programs in exchange for some promise of payment or service in the future.  Thus you are “entitled” to your promised benefit. The fact that both democrats and republicans are talking about “means testing” as … Continue reading
