We have always had crazy people, citizens lacking common sense, the misinformed, the ignorant, the purposeful deceptive, but we never used to put them in charge, until now. We are turning into europameristan because we think, it is not happening yet in our own back yards, neighborhoods, or towns.
We shake our heads in disbelief, joke about it, talk about it, write about it, while we are losing ground every day to a minority fringe bent on destroying everything around us and installing their ideas of civilized society: anarchy, socialism, Marxism, fascism, and Islamism.
Small areas of the country that do not represent America elect politicians like Barbara Boxer who make damaging policy for the rest of the country. She said yesterday, “Climate deniers in this country are endangering humankind.” In reality, the global warming hoax group is purposefully trying to destroy our economy by imposing United Nations mandated taxes on the United States, taxes earmarked for third world dictatorships.
Boxer tried unsuccessfully to pass cap and trade last year after bullying Roy Spencer during his testimony on cap and trade. “She did not allow him to finish any sentence that she did not want to hear. She displayed no tact, class, or understanding of the scientific issues, making trite and embarrassing comments of a global warming cheerleader.”
We allow Occupiers to create chaos, filth, disease, and destruction in our cities in the name of democracy in action, freedom of speech, and political correctness. They want anarchy, chaos, drugs, unions, free trade, no borders, free food, free housing, free school, free cars, free gasoline, free day care, free clothes, free perennial vacations, and free health care, all paid for by the producing “evil capitalists.”
We allow mainstream media to guide and control everything in this country because they know best what is good for the rest of the United States: socialism and Marxism.
We permit the indoctrination of our children in schools into the leftist agenda of globalism, environmentalism, diversity, socialism, and communism.
We allow third world dictatorships at the United Nations to control our land, water, and energy use via UN Agenda 21 and carbon credit tax in the name of social justice necessitated by a faux man-made global warming.
The head master of a second grade school in the U.K. cuts off the heat to an entire primary school during the coldest day in December to assuage his environmental guilt over his carbon footprint. The temperatures dipped to 1 degree Celsius while students shivered and were unable to perform their tasks. Parents were furious that this man chose to “save the planet” at the expense of their children’s misery.
Al Gore, politicians, the rich Marxist advocates and communism-loving Hollywood fire up their jets or taxpayer provided jets to go on shopping sprees, vacations, and other leisurely activities with total disregard for pollution or their carbon footprint. Yet we are expected and forced to alter our life styles fundamentally in order to fit into their agenda of rolling back life to middle ages.
The globalists invented the measurement of carbon footprint and water footprint for the masses but the oligarchs in power are exempted from such life style changes. They can pollute away. Entire countries can stop their economic activities and it would barely nullify a few days of China’s polluting industries.
We allow the federal government to replace parents and parental responsibilities. Detroit schools want to remain open during the Christmas holidays with the stated purpose to offer three meals a day to students and food baskets to their families. We do have food stamp programs in place and food banks, we do not need to keep schools open at great taxpayer expense. It is absolute insanity!
We allow TSA to dehumanize and humiliate us at airports in the name of air travel safety, an idea developed by progressives to better control mass transit. If we refuse the highly intrusive scanners, total strangers who seem to enjoy their newfound power are eager to molest us during pat downs.
“Sen. Susan Collins on Wednesday blasted the Defense Department for classifying the Fort Hood massacre as workplace violence and suggested political correctness is being placed above the security of the nation’s Armed Forces at home.” We allow voter fraud, political corruption, and squandering of our Treasury in the name of fairness, equity, social justice, and re-distribution of wealth. We are shamed and bullied into believing that protesting the corruption makes us bigots and racists.
We bailed out European banks that made irresponsible loans to irresponsible countries like Greece, Italy, Spain, and Portugal who spent lavishly on social programs while expecting the “dumb and ignorant” U.S. to be the military protector and policeman of the world.
Bernanke just acknowledged that the Fed “loaned” $7.7 trillion to banks in 2008. Congress had “no idea to whom these loans were made.” Bernanke claimed that he “saved the world from total catastrophe.”
We bailed out national and international banks that were “too big to fail” because they bundled bad loans with good ones on the forced direction of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Christopher Dodd, Barney Frank, and Maxine Watters assured us that both institutions were solid. Acorn and the Democrats picketed the homes of bankers to shame them into giving out mortgages to those unqualified who could not pay back the loans. If bankers refused, they were “racists and bigots.”
We are bailing out EU countries now through the International Monetary Fund because this regime does not want socialism to fail before the 2012 elections. The beloved socialist pet of the Democrats and this administration is floundering once again.
We are allowing the destruction of the best healthcare in the world, making the U.S. into the socialist utopia in which thousands of people will die untreated because of rationing of care, disregard for human life, gross negligence, and government malpractice.
Only in an insane world would people believe that adding 30 million more patients to the health care pool would make medical care better.
Only in a utopian world makes sense to bankrupt a country in order to fund socialized health care that is a disaster anywhere else it has been tried or is currently used.
The sane majority is allowing the fringe minority to dictate how we live, eat, drink, travel, worship, and ultimately what and how we think.
Only a deliberately blind populace would commit cultural, religious, political, and economic suicide by allowing a Marxist minority to control 306 million people with political correctness and lawlessness.
The current regime has destroyed jobs, homes, investments, and health care, yet the President is still the only one who can save us? How many more radical activists can we afford to put on the judicial bench in the next four years? How many more progressives can we afford to put on the Supreme Court in the next presidential term?
Our President is criticizing the Internet as a job killer in banking and phone industries, trying to excoriate the economic sector for the lack of job creation under his watch. People understand that Congress and Obama’s policies have caused the severe economic downturn. There is no denying it. He should know that Internet activity accounts for 21 percent of GDP growth.
The class warfare intensifies with the tired rhetoric that the rich must pay their fair share in taxes. “T. Boone Pickens has paid $665 million in income taxes since age 70.” Forty-seven percent of the population does not pay any federal taxes yet receive earned income tax credit. How much more something for nothing should they get?
If you do not own stock in a corporation, why do you care how much the stockholders decide to pay their “fat cats?” They are not responsible for your financial problems. You may have made poor choices in life. You may have chosen to drop out of school, or you may have chosen unwisely education in fields that are not employable. It is not the corporate world’s fault for your unlucky choices. Politicians are at fault because they made the laws, funded them, and accepted campaign contributions from corporations.
People are weary of the tired out excuse that Obama inherited everything from Bush. George Bush’s economic policies set a record of fifty plus months of job creation. Bush asked Congress 17 times, starting in 2001, to stop Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac because it was financially risky for the U.S. economy.
On January 3, 2007 the Democrats took over the Senate and Congress. On that day, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 12,621.77, the GDP growth was at 3.5 percent, and the unemployment rate was 4.5 percent. Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee. Fifteen months later we had an economic meltdown in the Banking and Financial Services.
Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and they still have not passed a budget. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Obama took office. In 2009 they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the budget.
“The deficit Democrats did inherit was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets, the lowest deficit in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending.” Since Obama was an Illinois Senator, he should say, “I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four times since my inauguration, to the highest level in U.S. history.”
There is organized and well-planned chaos coming from all directions at unrelenting speed. I am not sure how much longer this country can survive at this rate of insanity. We have become a threadbare carpet held together by very thin strings, threatening to break at any moment if we do not handle it gently. The sane majority must prevail.
