It’s been a month since I posted and to be frank, I’ve achieved nothing in the last thirty days—did nothing, produced nothing, it’s embarrassing. Well, I did pack up and I’m ready to head to Louisiana or Mississippi when the oil comes ashore, I thought I would volunteer. But packing gear isn’t much of an achievement.
I’m overwhelmed. And that’s the truth. I could write books about all the crap fed to us in the last thirty days. Obama told us to shut up and then encouraged Mexicans to protest the new Arizona immigration law. Isn’t that Racism??? For the president of the United States to tell white people to shut up and them encourage foreign nationals to protest in our county is the most absurd thing I’ve every seen or heard. I’ve conclude that Obama is a racist; he hates white people, hates America, and hates America’s success. He is not working for the best interest of the majority of Americans or our country. I thought that the new health care law was a little on the racists side. He cut health care for seniors—the vast majority of whom are white and gave (Who? the unemployed, the poor, the high school dropout, the under achievers?) the poor, the vast majority of whom are black massive new health care insurance. That’s racism isn’t it, I think so. He favors one racial group over another.
Even Fox News is becoming too liberal. I wonder if Obama bought them with advertising dollars or something—maybe threats? After all, he told Tea Party groups to shut up so it wouldn’t surprise me if GM or somebody promised Fox hundreds of millions of dollars—when the government owns big businesses, which basically support America’s media with advertisement that can happen.
Stephen Hawkins has been watching too much TV. His aliens are gonna eat us crap was pretty funny and unintelligent—that’s the kind of crap that I expect from my fishing buddies, but only after a bottle of JD has been passed around a couple of times.
BPs blow out preventer, the main line of defense, (really the only line of defense) was made in South Koreas and apparently never tested before being installed. It also didn’t have a remote activation switch because federal law doesn’t provide for it. With a remote activation switch, the well could have been capped when the fire started, days before the rig collapsed and sunk—bending and breaking the drill pipe. This entire mess can be attributed to arrogance, greed, and big oil power in Washington.
One Union leader in Greece talked about “Social Justice” as if government workers and Union workers deserve big salaries, massive early retirement and huge benefits. That’s socialism at its worst. Apparently Greeks would rather destroy their country then give up one cent of their ludicrous claim to richest.
What’s happening in Thailand makes me puke. The have not’s are protesting because the government can’t provide free housing, free food, and free health care.
In Venezuela, the “have nots” have nearly destroyed their country. Hugo Chavez got elected because he promised massive free benefits, food, housing, health care, and the “have nots” always vote.
Here is a warning to the “have nots” of the world, even thought you outnumber the “haves” of the world 3 to 1, most of the “haves” are just hanging on, it won’t take much to push the system into complete collapse. When it happens, arm yourself because the “haves” are tired of hearing about all your crap. Americans, especially white Americans have worked their butt off providing for their family, their community, their country and you want to take that away. When you win, watch out.
The best news of the day; the Russians apparently had the Somalia pirates walk the plank—killed outright? Nothing pisses me off more than the Somali pirates. The west is spending a hundred million dollars a year trying to keep the shipping lanes free of Somalia pirates.
On 11/25/2008 I wrote this “One more thing, the pirates working the waters around Somalia need to be stopped—in the news this week another drug cartel ship caught with tons of drugs. The risk is that violent gangs in Mexico, Central America and in South America will borrow a page from Somalia pirates and start capturing ships in the Caribbean and holding them for ransom. Or like in the Philippians, pirates could invade and capture hostages on Caribbean islands and hold them as hostages. Civilized governments have always battled pirates—the Roman Empire, China, India, England, and US Marines on the shores of Tripoli and in Algiers back in 1805. Here is how you do it. Warn the Somalia government that they need to take action, when they don’t, warn them again. Then get the CIA to identify targets and hammer them hard with overwhelming force and murderous intent. A fleet of bombers and 300 or 400 hundred bombs should be enough to quell any thoughts of pirates in other countries. You don’t want to get bogged down in protracted negotiations with twenty groups kidnapping people and ships on the High Seas.”
It’s sickening to me to see my grand children’s money being spent on a two bit, piece of crap, Somalia pirate. Walking the plank is good for pirates and for what ails the world.
On immigration: White males hate socialism, big government and high taxes. Parents push them to achieve: through grade school/high school/college and even their summers are educationally orientated. They are expected to be motivated and achieve success: be a hard worker—get the good job, buy the house, and raise the family. We want to live in a clean, low tax, safe community without interference by the government. Our anti tax, anti government has been called racists but how can that be racist? In a large part, the welfare state that we now find ourselves in is because of the white male—they have achieved success and paid their taxes.
The poor (in America) have never lived better; housing, food, utilities, education, transportation, and health care are all subsidized by taxes paid by the white male and others—but take away the achievement of the white males and there would be total collapse of the system—argue with that if you want. But as opportunities in America decline; as the government taxes away business advantages, white males will be looking at successes around the world.
Japan, China and India do not have open immigration polices; the door is not open to massive immigration of the world’s poor—okay, China and India have massive numbers of poor. But for the engineer, the programmer, the business oriented college graduate there are opportunities.
In the 70s and 80s we saw college graduates from India, Pakistan and other countries coming to America for the education and business opportunity. In the 90s and 00s we see students coming for the education than leavening for opportunities in other countries. In the 10s and 20s there is the real chance that we will see white American college graduates leaving America to go to China, India, and Japan as opportunities rise.
The pendulant has swung as our open door policy has filled out country with the uneducated who expect America to provide for their welfare. Other countries, especially India and China will have opportunities, if the opportunities are greater, American college graduates will be looking and leaving.
America’s welfare state can and will look like the welfare state in Venezuela, Cuba, Mexico, and North Korea where the very rich live in absolute luxury and government employees live well and where the vast majority of the citizens live in poverty.
I filled out my census thing and I sent it back and low and behold I got back a second census letter, with all the ads, and the three or four mass mailings, the cost for the census can really add up. But I wonder how many people got the second census letter and sent it back, are they being counted twice. Is this like voting, vote three or four times and make your vote count. The census has always been run by the Department of Commerce, but Obama moved it to the white house. This is the first politically run census and I expect big changes, and I won’t believe them. It may be the first third world census in America. Note: not because Obama is black, because the census was moved from the Department of Commerce for political reasons, not for practical reasons.
Note I wrote this on March 30, but didn’t have time to post it.
A low point: Has America finally reached a low point? If so will we bounce back? Is real government reform just around the corner? I think so, the new health care bill is the most ridicules thing to ever be voted on and approved in our history. It’s driving people into grassroots organizations and that’s how intelligent change takes place.
Not everything is bad: Ron Paul was on television complaining about a proposed national work card that everyone would need to carry as part of the proposed immigration reform. He went on to say that the card could be misused by the government. An example he gave is putting a GPS chip in every card so that the government could trace people’s movement.So and so stopped at a hooker joint or so and so is meeting with so and so at a motel or so and so was at the bank at the time it was robbed or so and so was at the antigovernment rally—whatever.
Yes, a national work card could be misused, but the good it would bring is tremendous, the time and money that law enforcement could save. The speed in which employers could id new employees. The easy in weeding out criminals applying for sensitive jobs.
This writer is for one semiautonomous federal agency that would be responsible for birth certificates, driver license, passports, Social Security cards and green cards. It could also keep partial school records, criminal records, credit records, and be the clearing house for missing people. They would keep photos, fingerprints, and DNA records.
This writer doesn’t think that the government is out to gets us, or that there will be massive abuse, or that hackers would be stealing massive amounts of data.This writer does think that our current system is way too expensive, is totally insecure, and is a hacker’s paradise.Answer this, which is more secure, one nationwide computer system or hundreds of thousands of small desk top computers in thousands of government offices nationwide? It’s easier to protect one computer system as opposed to trying to protect thousands of incompatible systems.
The Big Black Sound Bite was on The Factor with Bill O’Reilly. You gotta love this guy, he shows up whenever there is an incident, provides a quick media sound bite and then its back on his jet and home sweet home. He can’t be called a black leader because he hasn’t led anybody to anywhere, but if you want to sue the government over a racial issue, you gotta hire him to provide some solid media attention and get a couple of good sound bites. In a perfect cameo role playing himself on The Practice, he showed up threw in a few “God almighty,” and was gone.
The Sound Bite was talking about the phantom N word and F word at a recent tea party rally. For way to many black Americans, health care boils down to racial issues, as if they deserve free health care. As if they shouldn’t have to pay for anything. As if it’s okay to enslave millions of taxpayers. Black American’s better stand up for the right of tea parties to speak out. Black American’s better stand up for the right of white people to speak out. Because if we are shouted down, if we lose our right to speak, then the landscape is changed—constitutional rights would have been crushed, it would be one large step toward chaos.
In a large part black Americans have made tremendous gains because of the constitution, in a constitution-free country those gains will be lost.
I’m sitting here in my office writing with the TV on and some women reporter/anchor was talking about CERN, the Geneva atom smasher and she said “some people have called it a dud.”World scientists have built this incredible 10 billion dollar, one-of-a-kind, machine that has been in operation for two years and she calls it a dud. It’s not like the CERN machine came in a box with directions—scientist are not perfect, and can’t build the perfect machine from scratch, because their just like us, imperfect humans. Do reporters ever think about what they are saying? To think that it’s a dud, is stupid, to say that it was a dud is really stupid. It’s why I don’t watch a lot of news, to many unintelligent people bringing to many unintelligent ideas to the table.
The militias arrested for some hare-brained plot are a bunch of losers. Cops are not the enemy, the rank and file government workers are not the enemy. The FBI and the CIA are not the enemy. Or are they, Obama and company doesn’t trust the FBI or the CIA, as if they are some shadowy independent agencies doing their own bidding. Boy both agencies work with oversight by all branches of government—congress, the courts, and the executive branch.
Crimes against Humanity: in 1987, I clipped this article written by Senator Moynihan from the Houston Chronicle and I’ve carried it around ever since. It’s explosive and a good read. At the time, I was handing out copies and running around like an idiot, yelling “We’re f’d. We’re f’d.” That’s about when my reputation as a serial f-bomber really took off. I knew the government would spend the money; they spent all of the Social Security Trust fund money; plus massive amounts of military retirement and federal workers retirement surplus. Then they borrowed massive amounts of money from the private sector. This is a crime against humanity. The people responsible for spending this money should be arrested, tried for crimes against humanity, convicted, and imprisoned for life.
A $4,460,600,000,000 tale to tell
BY SEN. DANIEL PATRICK MOYNIHA
Senator Moynihan, D-N.Y., is chairman of the Senate Finance Committee's subcommittee on Social Security and Family Policy.
This appears to be the season for disclosing Washington secrets, and I don't see why only Republicans should be able to play. I've got a pretty good one. Secret messages concealed on Op-Ed pages. Whispered conversations on the Senate floor. White House limos hurtling through the wintry night to a house in northwest Washington. A bedroom—yup—on the second floor of the president's guest house, where nights earlier a visiting potentate would have been skewered by a plunging chandelier had he not been mysteriously otherwise engaged at the Watergate.
Huddled conspirators. Big bucks. Like, maybe, trillions?
Trouble is, it was really on the up and up. And has a happy ending. So I don't suppose it would sell, and I might as well come out with it here and now.
In brief, in 12 days in January 1983, a half dozen people in Washington put in place a revenue stream that is just beginning to flow and that, if we don't blow it, will put the federal budget back in the black, pay off the privately held government debt, jump-start the savings rate and guarantee the Social Security Trust Funds for a half century and more.
It all began on a morning in early January. Sen. Bob Dole, R-Kan., had an Op-Ed article (Chronicle. Jan. 5, 1983) that insisted that things would soon be looking up for the Reagan administration—there was a near-depression on—and that congressional Republicans were behind him. Nothing special, save for one paragraph. Having said that the issues confronting them presented as much opportunity as peril, he went on:
"Social Security is a case in point. With 116 million workers supporting it and 36 million beneficiaries relying on it, Social Security overwhelms every other domestic priority. Through a combination of relatively modest steps, including some acceleration of already scheduled taxes and some reduction in the rate of future benefit increases, the system can be saved. When it is, much of the credit, rightfully, will belong to this president and his party."
Oh? Not 24 hours earlier the budget director, David A. Stockman. had foretold that the, "most devastating bankruptcy in history." that of the Social Security Trust Funds, was only months away. Which wasn't so, but a lot of people believed him. What one columnist called "a scare campaign of vicious proportions" had been going on. The new breed of conservatives seemed to detest the program even more than the old breed. And the funds were going down, the result of an interval in the 1970s when prices ran ahead of wages so that cost-of living adjustments were not being offset by increased payments into the funds.
A year or so earlier, the Senate majority leader, Howard H. Baker Jr., had put together a bipartisan National Commission on Social Security Reform. Dole and I were appointed. Alan Greenspan was made chairman. Months went by with no apparent movement from either side. Then, suddenly, this signal from Dole. He and Greenspan had come to understand that the system's problems really were temporary and that in the long term it could be made heroically solvent.
On the day I was sworn in for a second term, I went over to Dole, who happened to be on the Senate floor. If he was as optimistic as his article suggested, shouldn't we make one last try? Two days later, he and I and Rep. Barber Conable, R-N.Y., were secreted out to White House chief of staff James A. Baker's house in northwest Washington. Negotiations began.
In time, we shifted our talks to Blair House (which was empty, owing to the chandelier incident), and on the night of Saturday. Jan. 15, we reached agreement on arrangements to save the system, which were promptly endorsed by the commission and the president.
Most of this story is now familiar. Here is what is not generally understood. Almost everyone involved knew—by then—that the administration had got the nations finances in terrible shape. Stockman, who joined our deliberations, has written about this in great detail. There would be $200 billion budget deficits "as far as the eye could see."The national debt would triple in eight years. And President Reagan wasn’t going to do anything to prevent it.
And so we would. Until then, Social Security had been on a pay-as-you-go basis, with a little cushion to take care of economic downturns. We could have fluffed up that cushion and let it go at that. We decided instead on a radical change in policy. Henceforth, we would collect and save for the far future, and not just the next year. An immense reserve would begin to accumulate before beginning to run down about 2030. In the process, we would pay off the national debt.
We have now had four full calendar years of the new revenue base. The trustees have just reported, and I have just had the first oversight hearing. Here are the numbers. The Social Security Trust Funds are increasing at the rate of $109,440,000 per day and rising
The current reserve is approaching $100 billion. Between now and the year 2000 it will grow to $1.4 trillion. (As of 1987, the entire assets of private pension funds were about $1.49 billion.) This revenue stream must be deposited with the Treasury. If at the end of the day the Treasury has more money on hand than it needs, it simply retires privately held debt.
This can sound areane but isn’t. Every week some millions of Treasury bonds and bills “mature” and are cashed in. At present, the Treasury “rolls over” the debt, issuing new bonds or bills to get cash to pay off the old ones. But if it isn’t short of cash it needed do this. The national debt begins to shrink.
Our present deficit “path” takes us, in theory at least, to a zero deficit by 1993. If that happens the revenue stream from Social Security will be sufficient to begin retiring debt by 1994. As public debt declines, private savings increases.
By the year 2010 the Social Security reserve is projected to be nearly $4.5 trillion. (4,460,600.000.0009.) if we wanted to go that way, we could probably have zero nation debt by that time. For the first time, incidentally, since 1836—when we were down to $38.000.
We could of course blow the opportunity. We could start to "spend" the Social Security surplus rather than using it to retire debt, and so get rid of the deficit. (Which for practical purposes now consists almost entirely of debt service.) But surely we should "save" it, and thus put aside the fiscal mess of the '80s.
Our real economic problem is that we don't save enough. Of 24 members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, we rank 20th, followed by Iceland and a few such. Yet, as one witness at our oversight hearings put it, by the next decade we could be "awash in capital.' This is the one sure way —saving and investment—to make certain the Social Security funds are still ample when the baby boomers retire.
One further point. In the near term, the proportion of retired persons in the population will be quite stable: the Depression babies. Today, there are 21 persons retired for every 100 of working age. This ratio stays flat through 2010. Claims on the funds will be steady.
There you have it Hard to believe' Yes. But within our grasp.
All done in 12 days in January.
Thanks for reading my blog and have a nice day.
Hate speech???? In a speech, Obama talked about a poor lady who had multiple health problems and needed urgent care and couldn’t get health care or afford health insurance. This writer was thinking that she would qualify for Medicaid and this writer’s thinking was right. After the speech, the Chicago Medicaid authorities said that she was qualified and no doubt rushed her application through. During the health care debate numerous times Obama and others said that people were dying because of the lack of health care.
Is that really true? Let some gang banger drop out of school, sell drugs, assault people, get arrested multiple times and when he gets shot in the numerous firefights that seem to take place in the inner city, he’s rushed to a hospital and gets the best care in the world. No health care??? Dying from the lack of health care??? Any American can go to any emergency room with or without insurance and he or she will receive treatment.
Yes, people are dying from the lack of health care. Like the young actress in Canada that hit a tree and refused treatment. Like my friend who died from a heart attack at age 47, because he was too stubborn to go see his doctor. Oh, by the way both had insurance and, at least in the case of my friend, he had a Cadillac policy.
This is hate speech isn’t it when someone bashes America. When the truth is hidden away to make a point.
Telling Americans and the world about the lack of health care in America borders on lying. Everybody has access to health care and it’s the best in the world.
The new health care bill will empower people with no job, no education, and living a completely tax free existence on massive government hand outs to manipulate an easily manipulated system. My gut feeling is that health care fraud is about to take off. It’s no surprise that drug companies stocks have gone up. The best stock in America is the company that makes Oxycontin.
It’s not just health care, when it comes to bashing America.
Listen to any Democrat, black politician or left wing radical in Washington and they talk about America’s bad schools. A commercial on television talks about Harlem neighborhoods with bad schools and bad health care, and talks about taking back neighborhoods one block at a time. This is hate speech isn’t it? These people are blaming the system, blaming teachers, blaming America. Nowhere in the equation do we find bad neighborhoods, bad parent, and bad students. It’s always the system is to blame, America is to blame.
Hate speech is in the eye of the beholder, if a left wing radical reads this than I’m the one making hateful statements. I’m the bad guy. Yet, the same person will blame school problems on teachers, on the system, on racism and on America—when the majority of Americans, including men like Bill Crosby, know that a huge part of the problem is kids, the parents, and the attitude—the whole anti-white attitude found in way to many communities.
This is the biggest problem in America; bash white males, schools, health care or government programs and be a left wing hero. Bash left wing programs, minorities, immigration, and taxes and you are sexist, a racist. Left wing has done a good job bashing tea parties, but these people are American workers, the tax payers, and the core of American society. For Obama and others to portray them as radicals is dangerous and it will back fire.
Getting things done. Give Obama the respect he deserves, he’s trying. G. Bush with eight years in the White House and a Republican congress did nothing. Well, he did borrow massive amounts of money, about 600 billion per year. He did deregulate everything. Well, the things that are falling apart—banks, real estate, and Wall Street. Obama is trying. It’s true; he’s trying all the wrong things. But America needs reform; no one right or left will disagree with that. But we need smaller government, not bigger. We need more restrictive immigration, not amnesty. We need health care reform, not another entitlement program. Hopefully what will follow Obama is real reform that will save this country, not bring it down.
The promises Obama has made to the poor have increased expectations 10 fold. Expect massive riots after he leaves office, possibly chaos. It’s been a long, downhill ride for America. Now there are too many people dependent on government hand outs, on the free food, free housing, free utilities, and with the new bill, free health care. Stepping back from socialistic insanity will be hard and painful.
Spilled coffee on my West Bend kitchen timer, and the beep-part of the timer stopped working. I’ve talked about my brain and its smallish nature, well, in the kitchen, without a timer, I burn everything. I’ve had four or five of West Bend timers/clock and they have always sat on top of my coffee pot. I’ve bought everyone at Wal-Mart, about 12 dollars, so I trucked off to the store, at Wal-Mart, no West Bend timers, only cheap looking crap, guaranteed to piss me off. Went to Target, same carp, went to Walgreens, no West Bend. Got on the internet, Binged West Bend, $22 bucks plus 9 dollars for slow shipping. Damn. The last timer I bought was four or five years ago about $12 or so. That’s massive inflation, but it doesn’t show up in federal statistics, the government doesn’t count the down grade in quality.
It’s not only West Bend timers, I wrote about bread on 9/26/2008.
On crap: For the last twenty-five years this writer and millions of other Texans bought Sunbeam’s Texas Giants—Texas Giant is a Sunbeam trademark for a loaf of white bread. At my store it was $1.17 a loaf and it maintained a stable price for years. At least until recently, overnight, the price shot up to $1.78 than 2 dollars a loaf. In its place a new store brand priced at $1.17 a loaf and probably the worse loaf of bread every made in America. The dough wasn’t mixed properly, the texture was poor, the tasteless bread dried out quickly. Because people wouldn’t buy it, the price kept dropping, it’s routinely on sale for .98 cents a loaf, and people still have a hard time buying it. If this was the sixteenth or seventeenth century we’d kill the baker. In the eighteenth and ninetieth century we would tar and feather the baker and run him out of town on a rail.
In the first part of the twentieth century, bakers were competing with the best product on the market while building their trademark and their company. In the last two decades of the twentieth century and so far in this century, it’s been growth at any cost. For the average working class American it means having to buy crap—quality no longer matters. Stores sell nothing but cheap shit that nobody wants and people buy only because they can’t afford a better product.
This is what Ivy League smart men on Wall Street have given to America. Maximize growth with cheap ingredients. Maximize growth with cheap products. Maximize growth with cheap labor from Mexico. Maximize growth by transferring massive amounts of technology to China. Maximize growth by building without pollution control. Maximize growth by controlling the energy market keeping the price high. Maximize growth by manipulating the price of homes. Maximize growth by constant market manipulations. Maximize growth by manipulating congress and the president. Maximize growth by manipulating our laws—tax, environment, and regulations. Maximize growth by controlling and compromising everything.
Today, the same loaf of Wal-Mart bread sales for 88 cents—the Texas Giant sales for $2.40. I’ve stopped buying both. It’s not only bread; brand name products are routinely 50 to 60 percent higher than store brands and store brands suck. But even the quality of brand name products is deteriorating. America is the land of cheap shit. In store after store, it’s such poor quality that I dread buying anything.
This is why some people think that I’m too liberal. I’m supposed to buy cheap crap and keep my mouth shut. As if profit is some sort of God like concept that comes before everything. But I’m watching my country deteriorate before my eyes and it pisses me off.
I think this is it for America. One estimate was that 14 percent of Americans were behind in their house payment. Fox news is talking about the 4 million homes nearly in foreclosure. The government can’t make 10 percent of the house payments for Americans—when the housing market fails banks will go down. The government will have to borrow/print trillions of dollars—inflation will push gas prices to unbelievable record high prices. People will be walking to the store, walking to work—just like all other third world countries with corrupt governments and corrupt business practices.
Attacking everyone…. in Washington. It’s great to hear all the threats. Left wing commies getting an earful, finally—after operating quietly in the back ground for years. Republicans getting threats from the left—nothing new there. If we go down, the killing may never stop—there is real hate in this country.
Read a lot and listened a lot about health care reform and I still don’t understand what the hell is going on. It’s a complex bill and my pathetically small brain can’t understand the details. It may take years before we really know how it will play out. But I believe that taxes will go up now, not later. In a way this bill is a God send, I’m for a balanced budget and living within our means and this bill has pissed off people, and it has pissed off the right people—the middle class and the small business owner. Things get done when people are angry.
On the surface, there doesn’t appear to be any reform, it seems to be just a new entitlement program. It doesn’t fix the high cost of prescription drugs, medical fraud, electronic prescription forms, or provide medical malpractice reform. It’s a massive bill signed into law because of a “funny” vote and it will polarize the nation.
Glenn Beck has been kind enough to lay out the left wing grass root organization that helped get socialist and communists (he calls them progressives) elected to local, state, and federal offices. They are the people that wrote the health care bill. This is what the middle class has to do, they have to become community organizers and build a base from the ground up. The tea party movement is a good start, but only a start. They have no real power to take over the GOP (like the socialists takeover of the Democratic Party) or anything else.
Staying mad; G Bush earned no respect from this writer because of the massive amount of money that he borrowed, because he deregulated banking, real estate, and Wall Street and set America up for a big letdown—massive amounts of money had to be borrowed to sure-up banks and Wall Street, this writer would have let them all go into bankruptcy included GM and AIG.
Bush set in the White House and did nothing, apparently, thinking that the free market would work without regulations. People knew that Health Care needed to be reformed, he could have done, he could have done it the right way, but what did we get, a new Medicare drug program—more spending.
We’ve got to have a constitution amendment that forces the federal government to balance the budget, reducing the deficit to zero and we have to pay off the massive national debt.
Yes, this writer is a serial f-bomber and yes, I dropped an f-bomb the other day. And no I won’t apologize. I also used the b-word (bitch). No I’m not a sexist. I was wondering why all the babes flopping for Tiger Woods were getting a free ride. Aren’t they home wreckers? Or is that just another obsolete term? I’m also wondering why the women in the Ben Roethlisberger case are getting a free media ride. Who are they? What do they do? Have they filed other claims? When a rape boils down to he said, she said. And in both cases there is no evidence to prove that this was anything other than consensual sex, readers should have an opportunity to see the accuser and make their own determination. After all, it seems as if only one side is being tried in the media. Remember Kobe, remember Duke, how many innocent athletes need to be accused and found innocent before the media wises up.
So I dropped the f-word and b-word and yes I have pathetically small flaky brain.So there.
Apparently, the VP dropped an f-bomb, too. No surprise there and apparently, he has a pathetically small flaky brain, too.
The majority no longer rules, the minority runs America, along with special interest groups. The “funny” vote comes as arms are twisted, deals are made, and, apparently, votes are bought.
Today could be one of the worst days in American history. Medicare and Medicaid have nearly bankrupted the country and now we are adding a third entitlement program. This new entitlement is funded by cuts in Medicare and taxes on small business. Senior citizens are the big losers, along with small businesses. Like any third world countries small business will pay more employees in cash and off the books—reducing social security taxes.
It doesn’t fix the high costs of prescription drugs or provide medical malpractice reform. Both items are needed to fix the health care system. And it doesn’t address the constitutional issues of passing a bill in this manner.
And we don’t know what’s in the bill, what surprises will pop up, or how the bill will interact with the current system. For Obama and the Democrats to reform 1/6 of America’s economy in the middle of a recession and with a trillion dollars budget deficit and over 14 trillion in debt—it boggles the mind.
Obama on Fox News said that Health Care has been a “difficult debate and process,” really! It’s always difficult when you’re shoving something down people’s throat. Obama better hope this works because we have no room for error. With 14 trillion in debt and counting, the dollar is worthless and inflation, massive inflation is around the corner. Economic collapse and civil war is a possibility as the system collapses’ around us.
I thought that NBA players were the most arrogant people in America. Little men who have massive physical ability to play a game—but Obama takes the cake. He’s got this left wing written crap, that he calls health care reform and he has no idea what’s in it and won’t let the America people read it and gets only half of congress to vote for it by twisting arms and with 30 plus states vowing lawsuits. He must be one of the most arrogant humans on the planet.
On the border killings: what you need to understand is that Texas, mostly big cities like Dallas, Houston, and San Antoine are no longer true American cities. The Mexican population is huge (in the millions) with their own subculture—newspapers, TV, churches, and shopping. There are vast stretches where the dominate language is Spanish and where our police have only limited authority. Any federal government involvement in the cartel wars along the border will spill over into Texas.
Like any third world people, the cartels are made up of people with no job skills, no education and nothing to lose. Local politicians’ lax attitude to immigration and the massive movement of uneducated Mexicans across the border will destabilize large areas of Texas.
Local politicians and dominate Texas media outlets—newspapers and television have been pro immigration for the last twenty years. Now several have commented that they are afraid to cover the killings of American consulate employees—basically reporters are in fear for their lives. Serves them right, they want to cover some 19 years old white guy who gets an erection in the presents of a 16 year old girl. They don’t want to cover massive amounts of crime committed by precious minorities. Whatever happens to politicians and reporters in America will be justly deserved.
The health care bill is really depressing, I can’t believe anyone would vote for a bill that the majority of Americans don’t want and that will likely spawn more organized anti government sentiment and turmoil. Add the cost to the trillions already borrowed and that a balanced budget is nowhere in sight. The federal government continues to make a mess of the country.
In Poverty is a Choice I outline Health Care options that are a little different than what Obama has in mind. It’s hard for me to believe that reasonable men would actually consider his proposal. I would dump the whole system including private group health insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid and replace it with a pay for your own insurance or use a general hospital system run by the government.
The Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center in Houston is a good example of government-run health care. It’s one of the best hospitals in America and with a patient load of 136 000, they are efficient, with a well organized and efficient staff. Their best asset is their computer system, all patient records are generated electronically including X-rays, prescriptions, and labs tests.
But this health care bill is not government health care; it’s the government paying for private health care
Among the many, mostly unprintable, things that I’ve been called, liberal is the worst but conservatives loath me too—mostly because of my stand on electric cars, windmills, and solar panels. But I’m a hybrid, I can’t buy into some of the some of the right and most of the left.
I’m for windmills, solar panels and electric cars. If we want to win the war against Middle Eastern terrorists than we have to take away their money and to do that we have to get away from oil. We are funding Iran’s nuclear weapons program, the disorder in Somalia and Islamic expansion worldwide. That is stupid. The truth, without oil the Middle East would be in worse shape than North Korea and other pathetically run countries.
On financial advice: ask anyone and we are headed into an inflationary period. The price of goods will be going up and the national debt will be paid off with inflated worthless dollars. That means that your electric bill will be going up, the $500 dollars a month bill could be $1500 or more. The $2.50 gallon of gas could be $7.50 or more. The best way to protect your future is with solar panels on the roof and an electric car in the driveway. If the cost for solar panels and a new Ford Focus runs60,000 at 5 percent, the monthly cost over 15 years is $475 per month; if the cost is 100k, payments run $709 per month. Compare that to a future bill of 2000 or more. Solar panels and an electric car is one way to protect your financial future.
Freedom is a fine line and it needs to be walked slow and easy. If the health care bill is passed without a vole or the “funny” vote the democrats are talking about, our freedom will be compromised. If the president gets his way with the health care bill, we should get rid of congress and just vote for a dictator every four years.
Checks and Balances is one of the main objectives of the constitution, the “funny” vote basically does away with it and it should be unconstitutional. But Politician after politician is saying that it is used all the time; does that mean there are massive amounts of legislation that’s unconstitutional?
Tiger is coming back from his sex therapy sessions and retuning to golf; no surprise there. As of yet there is no word if any of the women who flopped for him have entered sex therapy. Floppers need sex therapy, too. Even the bent over girl that sued the basketball player should get some. Since it takes two to tango doesn’t it makes sense that all parties should be rushed into therapy, not just one? Except Jonny’s girl who seems to have it together. Humm; I wonder if Tiger is jealousy.
Apology warranted: conservative white males complained that Mexicans/Hispanics would out breed Americans and dominate our country. The people complaining were branded racists. Well, they were right and they deserve an apology.
Mexico and Central American population are so undercounted that its ridicules, it wouldn’t surprise me if the population was double the national figures. Mexico has sent tens of millions of young adults to Americawhile their population has continued to grow at the same rate before the mass exodus from their pathetically run country.
On the Verizon map and AT&T and remembering our grandparents; our grandfathers were afraid that AT&T would only provide service to heavy populated areas and ignore rural areas where the population was small and the profit was limited. That’s why they regulated the telephone industry and that’s why AT&T was giving a monopoly.Well, they were right; AT&T has provided full service to only heavily populated and profitable areas and left rural America in the dust. AT&T has always had ruthless management—that is only concerned with profits—so it is no surprise to this writer.
The function of government is regulation, without it you have chaos and disorder.
That’s what we have in America; banks are in chaos, housing industry in chaos.
On a national ID card: in Yemen a former nuclear power plant worker now turned traitor. It’s unknown at this time what sensitive information has been compromised from plant security to the identity of nuclear power workers.
America needs a national ID card; one agency that would issue birth certificates, driver’s license, social security cards, passports, green cards, and death certificates. One agency that could keep track of workers security clearance, criminal records/back ground checks, and sensitive information.
It would save massive amounts of time and money by having one agency coordinate all of these activities. It’s not like we aren’t collecting the information, various government bodies (county, state, federal) are collecting the information and none of them are secure and it’s difficult to get timely information.
One federal agency in charge of identification would be easier to secure. It could have its own dial up system from secure computers and it would not be on the internet—where a million hackers would be trying to gain access to the system.
Ron Paul, who I like and thought should have been President instead of Obama was on television talking about government misuse of a national ID card system and worrying about big brother crap. There is no big brother crap in a national ID card. Governments have a responsibility to provide secure documents for its citizens and it has a responsibility to its citizens to provide a secure community to live in. A national ID card would make it easier and cheaper to provide both.
Whenever needed, big brother is trotted out. If a liberal opposes an issue, big brother is there to help, if a conservative oppose an issue, big brother is there to help. I would like to see big brother killed off.Hell, if I could get my hands on the son of bitch, I would strangle him. Or blow him away with massive amounts of buck shot or ….
California was one of our wealthiest states now they want us to bail them out. That’s a load of crap, they should go into bankruptcy just like any other badly run enterprise. The fiscally responsible states like Texas shouldn’t have to pay for irresponsible states.
Our massive amount of debt is going to bring this country to its knees; chaos, disorder, and civil war will follow. My gut feeling; Texas will be the first to leave the union, why should we follow the rest of you into chaos.
On Rights: a person cannot have a right based on the labors of another person. There is no right to education, food, housing or health care. A right to education means either the teacher is enslaved to provide the right or the taxpayers. A right to food means either the farmer is enslaved to provide the right or the taxpayers. A right to housing means either the land owner is enslaved to provide the right or the taxpayers. A right to health care means either the doctor is enslaved to provide a right or the taxpayers. The last time the United States tried slavery there was a civil war that killed more people that all other American wars combined.
I wrote that heath care may be the end of the Democratic Party, pretty stupid, huh; socialism and communism has failed every where its been tried, but its ugly head has always raisin in one form or another. Every now and then you gotta have a war to kill them off.
Health Care is finished in Washington. One senator stood up and told the truth, it’s a new entitlement program and health care costs will rise. Or it may be the end of Democratic Party. Obama is acting just like any two bit African dictator. On TV, he smiles and promises shit and than does the opposite, he simple doesn’t care what the American people want.
This morning On the Discovery Channel I was watching a show about geodesic domes a design concept championed by Richard Fuller in the forties, Mr. Fuller is a white male. The show featured two Asian males, a black male, and a Hispanic male telling the viewer about Mr. Fuller, I changed the channel. I just don’t need to have Asians, black males, or Hispanic telling me what a white male invented. It was too much for a Saturday morning. But this is par for the course, watch American television, news shows, educational shows, science shows or read American newspapers and white males are the problem in America. It’s as if white males commit the vast majority of crime in America. It’s as if white males haven’t designed or discovered anything in the last fifty years. It’s a constant barrage of women and minorities telling us about how bad white males are.
A good example, Hitler and Holocaust—it’s okay hammering Hitler, I don’t have a problem with that (criticism deserved) but the lack of information on genocide committed by Africans, China, or the Armenian genocide committed by Turkey almost seems taboo.
Another good example, we hear and read about the latest civilian killed in Iraq or Afghanistan by American (NATO) troops. But the vast majority of civilians are killed by Islamic terrorist. Women and children are targets in numerous bombings of market places and building. The media is so focused on our troops and aren’t nearly as outraged at the carnage committed by these religious fanatics.
In development, a movie (actually two movies) on the so-called I45 killer. Since 1971, (yes you read that right, the last forty years,) 21 women have been reported missing along the corridor between Houston and Galveston Texas. The bodies of 14 women have actually been found. The other seven could be living right down the road or maybe they were California dreaming—who knows. What we know is that one woman every three years is reported missing and their bodies have been found. That makes women living along I45 between Galveston and Houston the safest women in the world. Compare that to the 5000 men and women killed each year along the Rio Grande killing fields—that is, the border of Mexico and USA. Compare that to the hundreds of Mexican women killed in the industrial center of Juarez, Mexico across the river from El Paso. Compare the total of 14 dead women (remember over 40 years) with the number of women killed in inner cities every year.
These movies bash white males while ignoring greater ills—but that is American movies and television. Law and Order, Criminal Minds, CSI, are shows about white crime and white killers.One, Special Victims Unit even has a title that bashes males, it about women and children being victimized by males, mainly white males. What are they saying, if a male gets beat up, robbed, and killed he’s not special enough to be outraged by the crime. Even worst, women and minority males (black, Asia, or Hispanic actors) are out chasing down and solving crime committed by white males—saving America from white males.
The worst is Criminal Minds chasing down serial killers, almost always white males. In one episode a serial killer operating in Buffalo New York killed five young women. They pointed out that Buffalo was a big gang town with 600 murders, but none of the actors were out raged by this, they were only outraged by the white male. One of the main actors (Derrick Morgan) and the tough guy is a black male who is constantly saving white children and white women from white males. He’s outraged by white males who are killing women or children, but it doesn’t seem to bother him that inner cities are coming apart at the seams. That the vast majority of rapes, murders and assaults are from the inner city.
Okay, this is all dribble or worst. But women and minorities have hijacked television and are hell-bent on bashing the white male.
Obama believes in this television crap. It’s apparent that Obama has functioned so long within his small far left anti America crowd that he’s out of touch with mainstream America. Thousands of anti-American liberal news casters bash Gitmo along with a few thousand dedicated protestors and Obama wants to close Gitmo. But Americans, while we aren’t proud of Gitmo, understand the necessity of having it in place. It’s the same for the military court; it’s just a better solution than the civilian court. Note: this writer is for skipping Gitmo and the court and for some battlefield solutions—kill then quickly and the hell with their civil or legal rights.
