Killing: On a Mass Scale

2960312921_a174769e62
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 31 –
Marxists believe in killing on a mass scale. One example of this is Tiananmen Square killing in the People’s Republic of China. The students protested in Tiananmen Square, government forces killed the dissenters. It isn’t known exactly how many, but there were thousands killed.
There is a strong association of President Obama with Marxism. John Drew, who formerly was a Marxist, says President Obama was part of the Marxists at Occidental College. While President Obama was at Columbia University, he attended the 100th anniversary of Karl Marx’s death in a hall named Cooper Union. [1] President Obama’s house is in the neighborhood of Bill Ayers. Reverend Wright speaks in favor of Marxism. If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, it must be a duck.
Hitler was a killer on a mass scale. Auschwitz is an example.
The ability of a single camp to kill 2,000-3,000 people per hour took years to achieve.
Muslims kill on a mass scale. Suicide bombers are an example. The three 9/11 attacks are three more examples.
Beheading is a Muslim practice. Although it involves individuals, it takes place worldwide. Daniel Pearl is one example. Access to the beheading of Daniel Pearl is here.
Thou shalt not kill

The Dominos Are Falling

Obama one in four defect

Website

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 29 –

Democrats: 1 in 4 Defecting. Website 

In fact twenty seven percent are defecting according to the article.

More and more information about President Obama is coming out, and from sources I never dreamed of. A Muslim Marxist reported that there are now Muslim Brotherhood advocates in the White House, and Hillary Clinton verified that there are, in fact.

The The Obama File [1] covers all of  President Obama’s life. Whether it is completely true or not is beside the point. Secret information about Columbia in New York City is revealed.

The unions are displeased to say the least. Richard Trumpka is unhappy, the Teamsters are critical of the administration, and a whole bunch of unions are unhappy with the 2012 Democrat convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Maxine Waters spoke out asking permission to revolt against President Obama, in effect, and was joined by prominent Democrats.

Green jobs, a Van Jones communist project, are a failure

So, now were going to try to get Alan Krueger, of “cash for clunkers fame”, appointed Chief Economic Advisor.

Talk about going off the edge of a cliff!

Video: Tarek Fatah Talk at ideacity 2011:

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 25 –

President Obama is a good speaker. President Obama is also an undercover operator. He bypasses congress.

It is necessary to watch the video; linked under the image above to begin to understand what I’m saying.

The speaker in the video says he was a Muslim Marxist, and that he was an employee of President Obama in 2008. He talks about President Obama near the end of the video. He says there are three members of the Muslim Brotherhood working in the White House. A search of the previous terms will provide many other results with the same information.

We must not remain silent!

Now, lets switch gears, an old trucker term, and talk a little about illegal immigration. There’s a smell of “transforming America” arising from that garbage.  Immigration and Customs Enforcement has watered down the immigration laws since January 2009. Now, President Obama and his administration have “fixed” immigration laws [1] so that “criminals” will be deported and other illegals, liable to being deported, will be given back door amnesty. Want to employ American citizens? Deport illegals. Maxine Waters should get on “deportation”. This follows the smell of Muslim Brotherhood agents in the White House.

Throw all the garbage together, and we have a nationwide stench.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 24 –
Citizens of the United States have a short memory. Hopefully, I will be able to refresh their memory.
I may add images to this recycled article. I should have put up the image of President Obama with his hands near his crotch when I wrote the article the first time. There are over 500 comments on that article.
Any man that would show contempt for the United States during the pledge of allegiance should not have been, nor should not be president of the United States.
These images on this article will bring back the memory of the United States citizens to 2008. A terrible mistake took place. I had forgotten the “crotch” picture myself, but I read about it, and looked it up.
There are tiny links to the live videos at the top of the top two videos, if for some reason you might want to use them. I used them to write this article.
President Obama has tried to transform our country. I noted that President Obama did not attempt to use the 14th Amendment to raise the debt ceiling by himself. He did consider it however; he asked for legal advice. The advice was: Don’t do it!
My advice on voting for President Obama in 2012: Don’t do it!

Very Old Songs

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 23 –

My wife watches the Waltons on TV. The Waltons lived in Virginia in the 1930s, and my wife spent most of her single life in Virginia. They have music on the program, and they played the Merle Haggard song in the video. That song brought back memories of my grandfather, who sang that song in the 30s.

He also liked “May I sleep in your barn tonight mister”

Here’s a song that was popular back then. Nickity Nickaty Now Now Now Chubby Parker

My grandfather had a Victrola. It must have been an RCA model; I remember the picture of a dog; listening, which was their trademark. It had to be wound up to play a record. It had a crank handle on the side to wind it up. It played 78 rpm records. A steel replaceable needle was in the device that “coasted” in the record grooves. I guess it could be called a sound head.

I bought a record, which I played on the Victrola. I don’t remember what it was.

I guess Me And Bobby McGee - Kris Kristofferson could be considered an old song.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 22 –

In 2008, it was all about Hope and Change. In 2011, it looks like waste, and decadence. The tone of President Obama’s presidency is: waste, and decadence.

One example of decadence is President Obama’s persistent attempts to transform the United States. His attempts at “spreading the wealth around” appear everywhere in his administration.

The President lives luxuriously. One example; he used Air Force One, at huge expense to fly to Williamsburg, Virginia, approximately 150 miles.

According to reliable research in 2006 by the House of Representatives, it costs more than $56,000 per hour to operate Air Force One.

Perhaps you will recall other instances of waste by President Obama or his wife. These incidents of waste cannot be blamed on Bush or anyone else. The buck stops at President Obama.

Obamacare is an attempt to put government in charge of healthcare. Lenin believed that health care was a route to Marxism. 53% of Democrats have a favorable view of Socialism. 67% of Democrats have a positive view of the Federal Government. I say President Obama, Obamacare, and Democrats are decadent.

The recent bus tour is a case in point. It is billed to the taxpayers, but is partially campaigning. The bus tour doesn’t appear to be an economic asset. It is a liability.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 21 –

I’ve been thinking about buying a laptop. We went to Best Buy the other day, and here’s some of what happened. They had a H-P laptop for $429, which had a 15 inch screen, 3 gigs of RAM and a 500 gig hard drive. They verbally told me that it had a quad four processor. It turns out that it has a single core processor. I was leery abut a H-P guarantee. I’ve had an Acer and a Compaq laptop with no problems, and I’ve had a bunch of Dell desktops with minor problems.

The last desktop from Dell is the best computer I’ve ever had, but it came with McAfee anti virus installed. When I used the normal procedure to uninstall McAfee, it wouldn’t uninstall. I wanted Dell to hook up remotely, and take McAfee out. They wouldn’t do it. I have a geek son, who finally got it out. But, here’s my problem. Windows 7 has an anti virus free program built in. It works beautifully. Why would Dell install McAfee on a computer with a free virus program already built in?

I still trust Dell in spite of this, and other negative experiences I’ve had with them.

I looked up H-P, Best Buy, and warranty. I was shocked to see the bad reputation that they have in the results I saw. Look up Best Buy warranty, if you are inclined to do so.

While we were out in a shopping center near my house, I saw a WI Fi sign in a yogurt store. The store owner happened to show up to open the store. I asked her whether the Wi Fi was on 24/7, and she said yes. Now, I’m going to see how many Wi Fi hot spots there are in this area.

I checked out an I Pad. I don’t like the small screen. When I looked up internet connections, they were $40 a month and up for an I Pad.

I’d be interested in your technology news.

|Obama Warns Perry|Bernanke-$16 trillion Handed Out|Threat to Dollar|Duty|

obama warns perry

Click to Enlarge

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 17 –

Armageddon is here. We have a Radical in Chief President attacking a Christian, Capitalist, jobs creating governor.

Perry, who succeeded former President George W. Bush as Texas governor, is known for strongly conservative social and fiscal views. In his first three days as a candidate, he has upset Democrats by questioning Obama's patriotism and implying the U.S. military does not respect Obama as commander-in-chief. His remarks on Bernanke caused the biggest flap.

The Federal Reserve is or is planning to print more money, creating potential destruction of the dollar, which Soros loves. The Federal Reserve secretly handed out $16 trillion. They were forced to reveal their deeds recently. Bernie Sanders announced the General Accountability 266 page report on the Federal Reserve’s activity. Huge sums of money were handed out here in the United States, but money was handed out to quite a few foreign banks.

Financial markets increasingly expect the Fed to launch a third round of bond buying to provide liquidity if the economy continues to weaken.

"If correct, the noise will explode," Wirtz said.

The Fed has already conducted two such programs, known as quantitative easing, since the financial crisis. Critics say that such programs are equivalent to the Fed running the printing presses faster and can lead to a long-term reduction in the value of the dollar

Every citizen has a duty to do everything within their power to stop this madness, and they should set the deadline as November 2012.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

The Radical in Chief is making noises; like he’s being persecuted unjustly, wrapping himself in moral garb. Don’t be fooled. He’s a Marxist. John Drew, Stanley Kurtz, Dinesh D’Souza have all written extensively about president Obama. Stanley Kurtz has been writing for three years that I know of. Stanley wrote Radical in Chief.

John Drew:

Since I was a Marxist myself at the time, and had studied variations in Marxist theory, I can state that everything I heard Obama argue that evening was consistent with Marxist philosophy, including the ideas that class struggle was leading to an inevitable revolution and that an elite group of revolutionaries was needed to lead the effort. If he had not been a true Marxist-Leninist, I would have noticed and remembered. I can still, with some degree of ideological precision, identify which students at Occidental College were radicals and which ones were not. I can do the same thing for the Occidental College professors at that time

I have waited to publish today, and maybe it is good that I did. The top news is that a man confronted Obama at a town hall meeting and was videotaped. I searched and I found an article, which I like more.

That article contains much more information:

A man then asks President Obama why he's letting big companies opt out of the health care law if he wants universal health care. Obama says the law won't take full effect until 2013.

Lousy answer; what does 2013 have to do with health care waivers? Nothing. It is President Obama’s stealth mode. Hide from the question, deflect, distract, and ignore. Shameful!

But he says he wants to "maintain ... progressivity" as opposed to a flat tax. The problem, he says, is that Warren Buffett wouldn't pay enough taxes. (6:50 p.m.)

Words of a closet Marxist.

Click to Enlarge

Below 40%

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 15 –

President Obama is going to start his bus trip paid for by the taxpayers, and increasing the national debt by 41 cents for each dollar spent on the trip. The trip is a combination campaign event, and supposedly a government function to create jobs. American taxpayers are being defrauded, when they end up paying for the campaign portion of the trip. If I was in charge, President Obama would pay for 41 cents of each dollar spent as his portion, which is the campaign portion.

Fraud has several elements. There must be damage, the damage must be intentional, with knowledge, et cetera:

Common law fraud has nine elements:[4][5]

  1. a representation of an existing fact;
  2. its materiality;
  3. its falsity;
  4. the speaker's knowledge of its falsity;
  5. the speaker's intent that it shall be acted upon by the plaintiff;
  6. plaintiff's ignorance of its falsity;
  7. plaintiff's reliance on the truth of the representation;
  8. plaintiff's right to rely upon it; and
  9. consequent damages suffered by plaintiff.

Most jurisdictions in the United States require that each element be pled with particularity and be proved with clear, cogent, and convincing evidence (very probable evidence) to establish a claim of fraud. The measure of damages in fraud cases is to be computed by the "benefit of bargain" rule, which is the difference between the value of the property had it been as represented, and its actual value. Special damages may be allowed if shown proximately caused by defendant's fraud and the damage amounts are proved with specificity.  Wikipedia

President Obama, as a lawyer, knows what fraud is.

Look out for sob stories on this bus tour. Henrietta Hughes needed a house and a kitchen in 2008. President Obama’s handlers seem to always use plants in connection with his speeches at public appearances. If they repeat their use of plants, be very wary.

Obama is Not a Leader

“Our”Politics is Broken

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 14 –

“Our” Politics is broken.

Definition of OUR

: of or relating to us or ourselves or ourself especially as possessors or possessor, agents or agent, or objects or object of an action <our throne> <our actions> <our being chosen> Merriam Webster

So, President Obama is admitting that “our” politics is broken, which includes him. President Obama is part of “our” politics.

President Obama speaks with forked tongue.

Tine number one: 

“Many Americans are hurting badly right now. Many have been unemployed for too long,” Obama said in his weekly address. “Putting these men and women back to work, and growing wages for everyone, has got to be our top priority.”

Tine number two:

During the Michigan visit, Obama rejected suggestions that he should ask Congress to return from their August recess to begin addressing plans to reduce joblessness.

Leader defined:

: a person who leads: as a: guide, conductor b (1): a person who directs a military force or unit (2): a person who has commanding authority or influence c (1): the principal officer of a British political party (2): a party member chosen to manage party activities in a legislative body (3): such a party member presiding over the whole legislative body when the party constitutes a majority d (1): conductor c (2): a first or principal performer of a group    Merriam Webster 

A leader would call congress back into session. A follower would stand back and do nothing.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 14 –

The Hope of President Obama has not worked out well. That Hope and Changey Thing; how has that worked out for ya?

The debt ceiling deal, and the supercommittee are the new hope. The debt ceiling deal and the supercommittee will put the country on a new course; away from irresponsible spending.

The Tea Party has set the country on a new course; away from irresponsible spending.

It has occurred to me that the lobbyists are big spending advocates. The Tea Party, and the debt limit deal will weaken them.

Defense

Under the bitterly fought deal that raised the U.S. debt ceiling, the Pentagon is already getting a $350 billion haircut over the next 10 years, a roughly 6 percent reduction relative to current Congressional Budget Office spending projections.

Health Care

Left unreformed, Medicare, along with Social Security and Medicaid -- the federal health program for the poor -- will devour 100 per cent of all tax revenues by 2047, according to the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office.

"As we've seen, health policy is now budget policy," said Licy Do Canto, health care lobbyist and head of the Docanto Group. "It's not a question of when; it's a question of how much."

Many groups with a stake in health care spending said their lobbying will focus on the impact that entitlement cuts would have on seniors, the disabled and the families that care for them. One tactic will be to encourage patients to present their own stories directly to committee members.

There is Hope

Hope is just around the corner. The 2012 elections will either empower Capitalists or Marxists. The 2012 elections will empower Republicans, Democrats, or Tea Partiers. Heaven forbid that the lobbyists, big spenders, and Marxists get their butts kicked.

Austerity is Inevitable

Italy austerity taxes

Click to Enlarge

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 13 –

There are riots in Britain. It is my understanding that Britain has lifetime unemployment insurance. In other words, unemployment can be collected from teenage until death. If my theory holds, that situation will inevitably come to an end, if investors and credit rating companies have anything to do with it.

Unions have complained, but they are impotent in Italy.

New taxes, and austerity measures have passed in Italy. They still have to be approved.  Taxes and austerity measures were passed in Greece. Investors carried a big stick in both countries. Here’s what happened in Italy:

At an emergency evening cabinet meeting, the government adopted an austerity package worth 20 billion euros in 2012 and a further 25.5 billion euros the following year to bring the budget into balance in 2013.

The ECB [1] demanded accelerated deficit cuts from Italy as a condition for buying its bonds on the market after a sell-off sent Italian borrowing costs soaring and threatened to put the euro zone's debt crisis on a new, unmanageable plane.
[1] European Central Bank

Despite a huge public debt, Italy, the euro zone's third largest economy, had kept out of the crisis until last month when doubts over its slack growth and the government's ability to control finances triggered the selloff of Italian bonds.

"The austerity plan is not perfect but it's probably the best we could have hoped for in the current political situation with resistance from inside and outside the ruling coalition, and considering they had to re-formulate everything in a week," said Chiara Corsa, an analyst with UniCredit in Milan.

So, there is austerity, brought about by two main forces:

  • Investors
  • Credit Ratings

Complaints by unions don’t count.

Yesterday: Memories are Made of This

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 10 –

Yesterday was a very unusual day in my world.

My daughter and her husband left to go to New York City, where their son is going to appear as a band member in a night club.

He is a college student, and lives with my daughter, when he’s not at the University of Pennsylvania at Indiana. The band travelled to New York City from Pittsburgh, also.

We were going to go out to eat, and we used the Pennsylvania Turnpike. As we were entering the toll booth, there was a broke down truck parked on the berm. The next thing I saw was an old friend walking toward the truck. We went through the toll booth, and I saw my friend’s car parked outside the toll booth. I asked my wife to park, and I walked back to my friend and the disabled truck. The truck had stopped because it ran out of fuel.

There are two tanks on the truck, and one tank was empty, but the other one had quite a bit of fuel in it. My friend put 10 gallons of fuel in the empty tank, but the truck wouldn’t start. I suggested that he use ether to start the truck and keep it running until it sucked up fuel. There wasn’t much I could do, but I told my friend that I would buy his dinner. He declined, but we plan to have dinner together next Sunday.

On the way to our daughter’s house, we passed several huge hydrangeas. One of them was near my daughter’s house, and I took a picture of it. We passed another one, which was twice the size of the one in the picture, also near my daughter’s house, but it would have been dangerous to stop and take a picture.

S&P, Debt, and Obamacare

Obamacare coming

Obama Pelosi blowout

Click to Enlarge

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 10 –

The United States has a huge debt, which brought us to the brink of collapse. The debt is the result of poor political decisions. Big government is the result of those decisions. A new player has appeared on the stage of the big government show. That player is credit ratings. Credit ratings have put a check on big government debt. Credit ratings have issued a warning to investors, namely: Beware,  the credit of this government is risky, and you may lose your money.

The main problem is big government. Big government is in the social programs business among other things. Medicare, Obamacare, Medicaid, and Social Security among others. Big government thinks it can run a business better than the private sector. Medicare was in the private sector, but President Obama, Pelosi, and Reid decided that the government can run health care better than the private sector. The jury is still out, but Obamacare is risky. Medicare was passed in July of 1965. The estimated cost:

The cost of Medicare is a good place to begin. At its start, in 1966, Medicare cost $3 billion. The House Ways and Means Committee estimated that Medicare would cost only about $ 12 billion by 1990 (a figure that included an allowance for inflation). This was a supposedly "conservative" estimate. But in 1990 Medicare actually cost $107 billion.

This is the kind of stuff Standard and Poor’s looks at. They don’t only look at rigged CBO estimates, and neither should you.

President Obama’s Speech Yesterday

Obama speaks S&P

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 9 –

I was listening to Rush Limbaugh yesterday, when President Obama was supposed to speak. The speech was delayed, delayed, and then delayed some more for about an hour., I don’t listen to the President’s speeches, because they are loud, irritating, and stressful. So, I tried to find a transcript of the speech. The transcript wasn’t readily available either. If you want to read the transcript, it is here.The image above is also there.

Now, let’s analyze some of the speech:

And the good news here is that by coming together to deal with the long-term debt challenge, we would have more room to implement key proposals that can get the economy to grow faster. Specifically, we should extend the payroll tax cut as soon as possible, so that workers have more money in their paychecks next year and businesses have more customers next year.

This seems to be a departure from “tax and spend”. How does it jibe with “take away tax reductions for the rich”? It doesn’t. It is advocacy for tax reduction. It is Reagan like. The problem is we have a whole administration advocating taxing and spending, and this tiny idea will be drowned by the EPA’s appetite for controlling emissions, raising prices of gasoline, food, shelter, and transportation. It will be drowned by the NLRB’s actions in trying to prevent Boeing ‘s efforts to operate a plant in South Carolina. Obamacare is government control of health care. To put the whole thing in a nutshell; Marxism is opposing Capitalism via the current administration. An itsy bitsy, teenie weenie, tax reduction cannot survive in a sea of government control.

Developing: Ben Bernanke Secrets

bernanke 16 trillion

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 8 –

The cat is out of the bag. Ben Bernanke allegedly handed out $16 trillion on his own volition, without oversight, and in secret. He has chosen to risk the credit and faith of the United States government. Ben Bernanke used his position at The Federal Reserve to operate without constitutional or legal restrictions.The General Accountability Office was assigned the task of investigating Ben Bernanke’s activities. Bernie Sanders was part of the move to force the GAO to examine Ben Bernanke’s and The Federal Reserves’ handling of money from 2007-2009. Ron Paul was also involved. The House was involved.

Sanders’ website report is dated July 21, 2011. That was only a couple weeks ago, but the investigation has been going on for a year. There are links available in the Sanders link. I’m going to ask mstanley2265 to take a look.

This should be investigated by the Department of Justice. I have little or no confidence in the current DOJ. Perhaps Judicial Watch will take some action.

The list of institutions that received the most money from the Federal Reserve can be found on page 131 of the GAO Audit and are as follows..

Citigroup: $2.5 trillion ($2,500,000,000,000)
Morgan Stanley: $2.04 trillion ($2,040,000,000,000)
Merrill Lynch: $1.949 trillion ($1,949,000,000,000)
Bank of America: $1.344 trillion ($1,344,000,000,000)
Barclays PLC (United Kingdom): $868 billion ($868,000,000,000)
Bear Sterns: $853 billion ($853,000,000,000)
Goldman Sachs: $814 billion ($814,000,000,000)
Royal Bank of Scotland (UK): $541 billion ($541,000,000,000)
JP Morgan Chase: $391 billion ($391,000,000,000)
Deutsche Bank (Germany): $354 billion ($354,000,000,000)
UBS (Switzerland): $287 billion ($287,000,000,000)
Credit Suisse (Switzerland): $262 billion ($262,000,000,000)
Lehman Brothers: $183 billion ($183,000,000,000)
Bank of Scotland (United Kingdom): $181 billion ($181,000,000,000)
BNP Paribas (France): $175 billion ($175,000,000,000)
and many many more including banks in Belgium of all places

I say that The Federal Reserve and Ben Bernanke particularly, have put our country in harm’s way.

Medicare and the 2012 Campaign

Medicare NY 26

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 6 –

The 2012 Presidential and Congressional campaign has begun, and hopes have changed.

The President and Congress’ voracious appetite for taxing and spending got tamed by the debt ceiling deal.

The real hope and change changer was the Standard and Poor’s downgrade, plus the thoughts of both China and Russia.

If tax and spend had not been changed, to, Medicare and entitlements are on the table, the country would probably have defaulted, which would have been the end of Medicare and entitlements as we knew them. So, The Tea Party’s win of, no new taxes, saved the country from default, and saved Medicare in the process. The Democrats did not save Medicare, their tax and spend would have led to default and destruction of Medicare.

NY 26 win was a short hope, which has changed. Axelrod, Gibbs, and Emanuel must be disappointed. Things are not rosy for President Obama’s bus trip coming up.

“I think he is beleaguered, exhausted,” Baker said. “And I think that getting out and meeting the people is kind of an energizing experience for the president.”

Let’s see whether President Obama has anything to say about the hope of Medicare, or has that changed?

United States’ Credit Downgraded!

President Obama is a mistake. Obama "Marxist" "Brownshirt" Says Black Chamber of Commerce President The president of the Black Chamber of Commerce says President Obama won’t get 30 percent of the black vote. He discusses President Obama’s activities, which suppress free enterprise. He says that President Obama wanted gasoline prices to go up.

Looking for a safe haven?

President Obama would do well to look at the United States’ neighbor, Canada. The article suggests that  an investment in Canada is safer than an investment in the United States. They have relatively low unemployment, as does Mexico. Subprime mortgages were not promoted in Canada, as ACORN did. And who was a friend of ACORN; the community organizer. Canada has a vibrant energy sector. President Obama’s green energy, battery plants, and anti carbon emissions policies are a dismal failure.

Though not immune from the worldwide economic turmoil, the rewards of investing in Canada far outweigh the risks.

China’s position 

China downgraded the US credit rating last year. China’s dollar assets must be protected.

To cure its addiction to debt, the United States must reestablish the commonsense principle that one should live within his means.

Myth: Tax the rich

Some suggest "tax the rich to make up the deficit". As of the end of 2010, the total worth of all American billionaires is $1.3 Trillion. We could take ALL their worth, not just high taxes, but ALL their WORTH; and it wouldn't dent our national debt. It wouldn't even pay this year’s deficit! And if we did take their money to pay some of this year's deficit, what would we we do next year?

What is the solution? Capitalism trumps Marxism.

Liberals Had a Bad Week Leading Up to August 2, 2011

Limbaugh lies

Link to Article

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 5 –

So, what proof do we have that they had a bad week?  Dr. Peele was interviewed on MSNBC. He said:

"They want a state of happiness or nirvana that can't be achieved except through an artificial substance and reminds us of the Norway situation, when people are thwarted at obtaining something they can't, have they often strike out and Norway is one kind of example to one kind of reaction to that kind of a frustration."

"They are adamant about achieving something that's unachievable, which reminds us of a couple of things. It reminds us of delusion and psychosis,"

What’s wrong with a state of Nirvana? President Obama has one. The Tea Party can have one too.

First, the Tea Party had nothing to do with the Norway disaster. So, that is a failed argument.

Second, the Tea Party tried to achieve cut, cap, and balance. Taxes were not increased, and spending was not only cut, it stands to be cut more by December of 2011. A balanced budget amendment will be voted on by Congress. Obamacare may be subject to cuts by December 2011. They have already achieved the unachievable.

Dr. Peele’s intent was to debase and humiliate the Tea Party

PEELE: Well, I'm looking at one goal beyond. They want no new taxes because they seek some kind of idyllic past. No new taxes won't bring that. It won't bring them economic recovery, so then they’ll have to turn their attention to some other supposed method for attaining that until they go through all of them. Perhaps they can push through all of them. Perhaps people become discontented. Perhaps they will become discontented. And then I think people are likely to get riled up, and it could become a very angry movement, could potentially become a violent movement.

Good Week?

Obama Should Be Happy

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 4 –

Obama should be happy. This statement makes a point. Obama’s picture doesn’t give me the impression that he is happy. The area around his mouth looks like the muscles there are tense. Many of his pictures show his eyes gazing upward. Some I have seen recently show his eyes looking down, way down.

President Obama’s campaign finance activities are in the summer doldrums.

"This is not an easy time to raise money," said former Rep. Martin Frost, D-Texas, who led the House Democrats' fundraising arm. "His personal presence at events is important and he was tied up, certainly during the month of July, with the debt ceiling issue."

Republicans have called Obama the "campaigner-in-chief," and ripped his birthday fundraisers at a time of high unemployment and recent promises by Obama to reinvigorate a debate in Congress over how to boost the economy.

"He's tried all week now to play this spin that now the White House is pivoting to jobs, which they're tried many times before, and the first job the Obama is interested in saving is his own," said Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus.

Obama last traveled outside the Washington region on June 30 for a fundraiser in Philadelphia. He is planning a jobs-oriented bus tour of the Midwest from Aug. 15-17 and expected to take a vacation later in the month. As a result, the campaign was expected to hold smaller gatherings headlined by Obama "surrogates," or high-profile supporters such as governors and lawmakers, during the summer.

Axelrod is in Los Angeles, Gibbs is in Boston, and Plouffe is in Florida.

Economics versus Constitutional Lawyer and Community Organizer

This article helps to understand the graph

 

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 3 –

There was a slogan in Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign:

It’s the economy stupid.

Mr. President Obama, no offense meant, but it would be wise for you to reconsider those words.

Now that the debt ceiling deal has been signed into law, it’s time to move to the next great debate; it’s the economy.

Sound business principles must be applied. No more stimulus, no more community organizing, and no more spreading the wealth.

ACORN was a huge mistake. Risky loans are out of the question. We don’t need Saul Alinsky’s pontifications to guide us. No more “Take what you have and clothe it in moral garments”. No more change to “the world as it should be'”. Clean, well groomed, and dressed is OK, but don’t use appearance to deceive.

If the debt ceiling deal is a lesson, then let the Tea Party members of Congress point the way. Adopt Paul Ryan’s ideas about health care, and get rid of government sponsored Obamacare. You might not have to do that, Obamacare may be ruled unconstitutional.

Our number one priority should be the economy. Keynesian theories have failed. Community organizing has failed. A constitutional lawyer’s ideas have failed.

It’s time for change; now, not later.

The House Was a Happy Place as The Debt Ceiling Passed and Giffords Returned

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 2 –

It is a rare treat to enjoy and share happiness in the House of Representatives. I watched the vote on the debt ceiling deal on C-Span. The deal passed 269-161. The House erupted into clapping and cheering at the end of the vote, which continued for a considerable number of minutes. The presence of Gabrielle Giffords in the House became apparent to the legislators and associates.

It was very moving to witness such goodwill.

I took accounting in college. One of the items on the books in accounting was goodwill. Goodwill is an asset. Goodwill is an asset in government also, but I haven’t seen much of it in government in a long, long, time. Ronald Reagan and Tip O’Neil had goodwill. Bill Clinton had goodwill. I have ideas about who has goodwill, or lack thereof, in the debt ceiling deal.

I will leave that thought with you, to decide, who you think has goodwill, among those, who are involved in the debt limit deal.

The Tea Party Has The Upper Hand

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 1 –

The Tea Party is in a position to win the debt ceiling contest. If they stick to their guns, they will win. They can vote down anything that originates in the Senate. They can vote down anything that originates in the White House. They are in control in the House of Representatives. They have no obligation to anyone except to themselves and their faith.

The Tea Party doesn’t owe the White House. The White House was bent on taxing and spending January 20, 2010. Medicare and Social Security were their sacred cows. July 31, 2011 their tax and spend utopia crumbled. An historic agreement was reached, in which Medicare and Social Security were not sacred cows anymore.

Harry Reid dropped taxes in his debt ceiling proposal. Why? The Tea Party would have shot down tax proposals. They won without ever firing a shot. The Senate proposal that passed in the Senate was voted down in the House. The Tea Party had the power, and they used it.

Obamacare was forced down the throats of the citizens of the United States. Tax and spend will not be forced down the throats of the citizens of the United States, if the Tea Party chooses.

The Tea Party has been blessed up to this point.

I pray that God will protect and guide them to do the right thing.
